It is time for AB to step up. If he cannot get any significant playing time with the amount of injuries we have and the shortgae at LB, it is safe to say he is a bust. Line him up, take away pass coverage responsibilites and let him run to the ball!

BahamaCane

Time for the Canes to go on a 4-0 run through these conf games.

I have faith that GT and VT will loose one more time in conf as well.

LETS DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!

Aquaman

The only thing #45 was good at was losing his helmet on Saturday...

Canez1

I'm with Vince.

Let the boy loose. There are plenty of veterans to help him out during the game.

Let the boy loose.

Like I said he can't make more mistakes than Sharpton.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

Esteban

aqua, yeah i saw that quote where he said he did good.

Esteban

and yeah i was thinking that was proof that some guys aren't that good when it comes to self assessment.

Thanks for the guilt trip, 86. I guess I'll try to be on the blog more. LOL!

For those of you making comments about the lack of crowds you see at our home games I simply ask…..Where have you been??? Unless Miami is playing a marquee matchup (FSU, Notre Dame, USC, etc…), they are not going to fill up a stadium. I don’t care if it’s Land Shark or the OB. It has always been this way and it’s one of the knocks I get (being a Miami fan) from other teams fans. Heck, one of my closest co-workers is a Husker so he is always brining this up.

The only way the Hurricanes sell out every home game would be if A) every other sports team in Miami leaves, B) Miami builds an “on-campus” stadium. Like UCF’s Bright House stadium but made of concrete and not aluminum, lol. C) Give away tickets or D) 86 has a free canespace t-shirt for the first 80,000 people. 

Honestly think about it Arthur Brown, there is another issue, maybe related to the way BBrown acted. Maybe coming to Canefest with a tenn jersey with Arthur. Its past any common sens. I do not believe it is Browns lack of getting it, I see brown fly on special teams.

I feel Shannon just does not like Brown for some reason at this pt. its personal, that is just my opionion based on basic logic.

Esteban

when Arthur got an opportunity he didn't capitalize on it. And now he's back on the bench. I don't think there is any conspiracy to it. Just needs to do what the coaches ask him to do. With that said...with all these injuries they need to get him in there just so the other guys can get a breather if nothing else.

DZ8

I think Arthur is working hard and we'll see him eventually. If Randy had it "out" for him do you really think Arthur would still be here?

Esteban

Didn't see much of the game on Saturday. Cookie didn't do so well huh? Where did U see the quote U were talking about.

That can be arranged!

I haven't mentioned that one to the UM ticket office yet. Hmmmmmmmm...

DZ8

The guys need to get a 3rd down stop if they are getting tired. Easiest wat to get a rest, 3 and OUT. (but when that fails yes we need some back ups)

Posted by: DZ8 | October 27, 2009 at 01:46 PM

Best way for this D to get a stop on 3rd down is on 3rd and short. I am honestly way more confident in our D on 3rd and under 5 than I am on over 5 until it gets over 25 or so. even then I am not entirely sure they wont get called for a dumb penalty like PI or D-holding. If the rules were a set of 3 downs we would dominate!

Esteban

dz8, i think the quote was in the new Manny blog.

got blocked easy. looked lost to an extent - might just be perception. and looked small - which he is, so that just is what it is. but hopefully a full week of practicing with the 1st team will help with some of that.

You are on a roll lately.

He isn't good enough. Period. If he was he would be in there.

Chasing a guy running back a kick and playing MLB, calling out coverages and making reads is a different animal.

LOl at no. 45 - coaches were going with a banged up Spence vs. a "healthy" 45 - that should tell us all we need to know right there. He needs to get better.

DZ8

BEERicane

Agree on the third downs. Our front 7 can step up on the run but has issues applying pressure with just a four man rush.


Thanks Esteban

Cookie is one of my favorites after the signing day meltdown he caused ole urban up north.

Jacory's TD after giving up the pick 6 to me was play of the year, and why I wouldnt trade him for anyone, but that play alone should have had us still throwing, instead of the 2 occurrances of run 3 and punt/FG

Posted by: phillyscott | October 26, 2009 at 08:48 PM

Philly brau, I made the following point to a total stranger sitting next to moi, at the local sports bar, last Saturday. Albeit he was a college football fan, because he had his eye on the Miami vs. Clemson game.

I told this old school cat, that after JaCory threw the T.D., after a deflating INT, he'd win the Heisman Trophy his Junior or Senior season ( That's IF he stays around for his Senior year. ).

For Harris to comeback after being knockdown like that took absolute MOXY. A MOXY he nurtured on the streets of Miami.

Because, not too many major college football QB's, especially juniors and or seniors, could throw a length of the field T.D., after throwing an INT for touchdown the previous play.

Yes indeed, that's what I told this kool kat. In other words, I said Harris has PSYCHOLOGICAL TOUGHNESS!

Man, I still absolutely tought Team Shannon would win after that tight TD pass.

Btw, FINS UP at the Dolphins games is the absolute worst marketing idea I'v ever seen.

DZ8

I heart Jacory as much as the next guy but... he just threw the ball far enough away from the dbs and didn't overthrow TBenjamin. The play call showed Jacory the coaches have faith in him. The throw was a good, on-the-money throw but I think some of us are seeing too much into it.

I'm very confident Jacory will be here for his senior year. I would like to see more discipline from him as far as turn overs. Not just the ints but the lack of urgency in the pocket, often times resulting in fumbles. He has a Farve/Marino like issue where he just chucks the ball up into some dangerous situations. They got away with it because of their arm strength. He gets away with it because in high school and college his receivers are men playing with boys.

JMO, remember

I HEART JACORY as much as the next guy (or previous guy)

dlu

pb maybe but I am not so sure, Arthur is not that small. You saying personalities and likes and dislikes never enter the picture. What perfect world are you from.

DZ8

``Against Clemson, when Sean went down, Coach put me in and I played good,'' Buchanan said. ``I played a lot of snaps last week. I'll probably play a lot more snaps this week coming up because we all know Sean is down for a little bit right now.''

from SMD the Herald.

dlu

Note, I played sports from yrs. 8-20's and favoritism was always part of the equation, for certain guys, against certain guys just human nature.

SOUP

Running late! More work than I thought to get the new blog ready. Lots of quotes.

New ETA: 4 PM. Be patient!

DZ8

Canes fans be patient? Right.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, yeah, that makes sense about the LBs.

I'd put Ponder ahead of Jacory in most categories right now, which is as it should be. He's a RS junior. He should be ahead, and he's a very talented kid to begin with. It's a disgrace. Honestly, he should be in the Heisman talk because FSU probably doesn't win a game this year without him and he's outperformed T-Bone and McCoy.

I'd say Schnell walked into a situation more demanding than Shannon because Schnell had NO HISTORY or tradition, and definitely not facilities.

macjones de Albuquerque

In other news, why is Christian Ponder getting complete ignored by all these QB awards people?

How in the hell do Jacory and Matt Barkley make the Davey O'Brien list but not Ponder??

Disgraceful and ridiculous.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | October 27, 2009 at 12:48 PM

Because, it's all about the team records. Think winning and losing.

In other words, all is not fair when it comes to winning and losing.

Fran - thanks for the pic yesterday, I'm just glad that I had already eaten and had time to digest my food

Amazing though, I kept showing some people up at work that picture and a couple of them asked if you'd been attacked by a chainsaw or bitten by a shark or something

Dude, U's need to lay off the alcohol. Too even utter such an INSANE notion is enough cause for U's to be crucified in a Cane sort of fashion.

And I thought I made stupid remarks.

By the way, U should drop the "u" from your moniker, because U's ain't no friend of The U. Just messin'. LMAO

Texas Tech though does have an enormous amount of two legged talent on their campus

So maybe just the football players were getting with the wrong girls and Leach was calling them out on it, trying to get them to upgrade

DZ8

Tebow should be getting a lifetime acheivement award but his stats this year are NOT heisman worthy.

Fair point about Schnell, but I think it is a half full/half empty debate.

He also didn't have a conference to impact his schedule.
He didn't have any great expectations put upon him, just his own.
Facilities sucked but I think thats how he would've designed it.

Schnell played for Bear at Kentucky. When he found out about The Junction Boys at Texas A&M he made some comment like, 8 days? We had to go thru three weeks!

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, yeah, Jacory does need more discipline with the ball and more urgency in the pocket. He's too cool sometimes, like against VT and at times against UCF. But against FSU he showed great pocket presence and movement under pressure. Quicker movements and reads are really the point, when to duck and run and when to throw it away quickly. He has the footspeed, he's just learning the actual footwork along with the mental work.

He'll develop those though.

Do you think Randy wouldnt play the #1 recruit in the nation if he knew it would help, just cause he didn't like his brother?
Do you think he's liked every kid he started?

Shannon knows his azz is on the line this year. Canes go bust and lose two more games the last half of this year and he's going to be looking for a job.

If Arthur could play, he would play.

He can't, so he isn't.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

PB, if those fools at CG are stupid enough to fire Shannon even after a 4-loss season, they're more idiotic than anyone I've ever heard of.

With that schedule and the way the kids have played, and the way they're clearly going to be playing, it would be height of idiocy.
