First,

I REALLY enjoyed the tailgate and everyone I met. Angry, canechic, JSQ, 86, moneycane (and wife), are ALL VERY COOL FOLKS. Can't wait to hang again. I really enjoyed it.

I think Angry, money, canechic, and JSQ made most of my points for me. I was going to post the same thoughts, but I'll spare The Legion of repeating them.

Most of the posts I read, I agreed with. I really like the fact that most of U guys and gals see the silver lining here. I'll explain in a few minutes...

What's up with Davon Johnson and Kendall Thompkins, especially Thompkins, I heard nothing but positive things about Him during the Spring. And I thought that Johnson did some good things when the ball came His way.

My opinion maybe nonsense, could be, it was not an opinion that I can to easily or quickly took a few years and a lot of frustration. I would love for the U to change defensive approach and quite making bad qtbacks look like heisman cand.'s

RandyCane here, (solar),

I guess the positives of beating Georgia Tech the way we did and the way we stopped their offense isn't good enough for the here and now? Beating OU, even without Bradford not good enough?

JSQ...I had writers block at first but then the article kinda wrote itself. Of course I had to do a few edits and corrections but it all worked out in the end.

GO CANES, BEAT WAKE!

Daytoncane

oh geez where to start,

i think we just start banning people that come on here after every loss and talk trash. that's all they do and it's really not worth it to let them post here. go somewhere else with that.

Jacory has started to look more average lately, but that kid is still going to be special. you can tell that by him throwing a touchdown right after a pick six.

and im starting to wonder why Whipple couldn't get that HC or OC job in the NFL. it could actually be because he wanted to come back to college. or it could be because he is a hothead that head coaches don't want to deal with. if he were to mouth off to Andy Reid or Bill Cowher like that, i wonder what would happen to him?

Lovett has to do something with this defense. i understand that injuries are piling up, but we have to find a pass rush. that Clemson QB had all day to throw and he picked us apart in the second half. and the coverage teams are not helping us out either. Pannunzio's unit better finish out the year on a good note or he might be gone.

honestly im not too mad at the loss considering this one of the teams i thought we would lose to when i saw the schedule. i had us losing 3 games - Va Tech, Clemson, and USF. i still think we'll drop another one though.

we are ok. with or without Shannon this core group is going to be scary good very soon.

86Cane

I promised 86cane I would post for the first time instead of just reading!!! Enjoyed meeting everybody at the Hampton. It was great going to a game just wished for a better outcome. GO CANES!!

randy we are getting better

we played great aginst GT they are 11th in the nation, thats outside the top 10.

OU was over rated when we played them.
We became over rated when we beat them.

where was your comment on how good enough we handled VT and unranked Clemson at home?

I'm satisfied with how we are doing I said 9-3 before any game was played and we could go 10-2 which would be one game better than I thought we should be.

Every Canes fan wants Shannon or whoever is coach to be the greatest coach ever to get it done.

Just like every sane person wants every president to be great. Just makes sense.

But again if you have any common sense , you look at the games and decisions and see what is happening and right now there is a big question as to whether Shannon is head coaching material. Shannon is a Cane always will be so he is good there. But all Cane bias aside has Shannon shown that he can be the guy to coach the U to greatness yr. in yr. out, I do not think so. Hope he does but I have lost faith in Shannon as a head coach, just me. Really hope that I am wrong. that is true not just words, hope that I am wrong.

Listen Pancho...Until they name a new one at the END of October I'm riding this thing until it dies.

solarcane

One thing everyone should realize on Canespace is when someone makes a critical remark about Randy Shannon or the Miami Hurricanes,
it isn't a personal attack on The Randy or you. It is merely someone's opinion on something they observed.

I think the world of mm01 and Randycane on here, good guys and true cane fans, we just see things different sometimes

miamimike01

dlu,

I'm not in love with the defensive playcalling last night, either.

But, we have as fans, have to keep in mind, that this is still a young team. 53 of 85 players are FR. and SO's. Depth is still an issue, and RS said as much leading into this season.

He also stated, that the numbers won't be right until the beginning of next season, RS's THIRD full recruiting class.

I think the media did an excellent job of raising the expectations after going 3-1, and we ALL drank that Kool-Aid.

The U is back.

No, not all the way, b/c the quality depth STILL isn't there at key positions. But the U is definitely on the right track under RS.

I see a lot of posters saying that Lovett should do this and do that and thats the easy thing. If you've coached anything at any level you know how difficult it is to get exactly what you want out of your team, especially if its your first year. Its a process and with this being his first year at UM, of course theirs going to be some growing pains. I think they've got some kinks to work on and one of them is getting the Dline to convert from their reads and disengaging to a pass rush. They do a decent job on maintaining gaps and offensive lineman, but its the disengagement part that the Dline is struggling with to create a pressure. But all this is assumption b/c I dont know what their philosophy is on defense, just taking a guess. They'll get it figured out and if not its on to the next man. Big game again next week esp. with it being and ACC game as well as an away game. Those Decons may not be as talented as Clemson, but best believe we're going to get their best shot. Canes better come out pissed out and ready to make someone pay for the BS that happened on Sat. Like Irvin said, "FOCUS AND YOU GET DONE!!!!" Give 'em hell next week Canes.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

bad weekend for both our miami football teams! hopefully they pick up their game next week! beat Wake! beat the Jets!

VA Cane

Having played and coached this great game for a long time, i find rarely, if ever 1 play or aspect of a game dooms a team. However, when you get a toxic mixture of negative occurences, look out. Foolish penalties, kicking to Spiller, poor clock management, bad qb decisions, some questionable conservative play calling, pick six, thin OL and DL, not making adjustments and on and on...all these things added up to a razor thin loss. I hate losing, so do you guys.I think to try and decide ownership of blame is futile. Things go bad on a given day, and OUR TEAM loses. Heck, we love these boys when we win; I find it appalling to abandon them when we lose. When we celebrated the vaunted 5 NCs...er 6!!...we loved them, so when they lose, we beat them down, critique them into oblivion, and take to personal rancor and insults? It is not right. Some people who posted here about this game have a right to their opinion, but to insult and bring race into a game played by some pretty good kids we call OUR TEAM is wrong. I invite anybody who is not happy with the boys to pull for UF, Bama, TX, USC...they have good teams...or stay close to home and pull for the other FL teams...they are there and need fans. This game I played, coach and love is simple in one aspect...block and tackle...but hard in many other ways. It takes all the coaches, players, trainers, students and fans to win...and if we lose, do we abandon each other? The TRUE CANES in here will not...we can point out mistakes, and be bummed out...but we do not give up, or quit, or abandon our boys...win or lose...right 86? Time to get ready for WF!!

mi@mic@ne

I kind of agree with Jimmy Js philosophy... what do you do when the situation is really harry and you need some yards... you think of the guy who is the most talented to get the job done... not how you have practiced run blocking for three weeks and you are confident that it will work. In my opinion that is JH. who throws the pick 6 then comes rite back and tosses a 60 yrd perfect pass to our receiver who had the 6 yrd separation. Its the best player..just like Emmit or like they went to Spiller in that long run on the last drive.

solarcane

Jacory is still #10 in the nation in passing efficiency which is pretty remarkable for a sophomore with a new OC.

If Jacory can squeeze out one more int he will be tied for most interceptions in the nation too.

miamimike01

solar,

the point is...

... GOOD THINGS are happening. Last year, UM drops this game, gets blown out. This year, UM plays a mistake filled game, in ALL three facets of the game, and still should have won.

It took Parker's career game, Spiller's career game, a below average effort by UM as a whole, to get us to OVERTIME.

THAT'S PROGRESS. Anyway U shake it. And only two true classes put together by RS.

Silver lining.

mi@mic@ne

Yes but most all of his interceptions have been like punts. Look JH is making it look so easy.. i mean ... he has really smooth mechanics...that it may be that some people dont appreciate just how accurate this guy is. He takes chances. But i do not believe that there is another guy in college football who could perform with the kind of o line we have and get the ball off with that kind of accuracy. Some of his throws look NFLish.

I'm goIng to Halloween party at work Tuesday... Planning to dress as a Gator Fan (should make myself and Bulldog coworkers feel better)... I'll wear Jorts, Gator tshirt with arms ripped off, a mullet wig, and I'll be drinking a Natural Light 16oz can.... Anyone else have any suggestions, I'm sure I'm missing something?

Man that loss yesterday HURT bigtime. I hope the team can move forward and come out againt Wake and play hard. And once again I gotta call out the "passionate" Miami fans. What I saw from them yesterday hurt my heart. It was the fourth quarter with the game still in question and the people in my section were acting like they were watching an opera. No emotion or cheering at all. Outside of the result of the game, the overall experience of the weekend was great. I think it's a wonderful thing that 86 is doing with the space and bringing people from different walks together.

Did I mention JSQ has gorgeous blue eyes?

solarcane

mm01,
I just said we are gettng better,
I'm on the 4 year plan with Randy remember?

Because I can see it's gonna take a realistic four years to become what a lot of folks think is happening now*
that doesn't make me any less excited than the people that think we are going to go 12-0 the last three years.

The one fact that is lost on sooo many Canes fans is other teams are getting better right along with us.

*plugging in any guy off the bench and not losing a step at any position.

Why the HELL were the Dolphins not in the gun, and running PLAY-ACTION, quick outs, and running plays, down 2 scores, with less than a min. to go?

TELL ME, NOW!!!

miamimike01

Uribe kicked deep after being instructed to squib it...

... hmmm. Explains the kick return. Coverage team ran Squib coverage, expecting the returner to be in the middle of the field. That's why Spiller was able to break it out to the outside. Also explains why Bosher kicked-off in the seconf half.

mi@mic@ne

yes but we should have blitzed more last nite and we should have kept a better eye on Spiller. And we cant kick off with any hang time or distance so its foolish to kick the ball directly to Spiller. If we would have done simple things we would have won by a couple of touches. All around it was obvious that we had more talent.

miamimike01

solar,

we just had a miscommunication. No hard feelings, brother.

I think the world of U, too. I appreciate the compliment.

Glass is half full or half empty?

I can see both perspectives, but if you know the game, U have to see it as half full at UM. (considering the circumstances)

WAY too many positives. They far outweigh the negatives, at this point.

Hey money, glad to see U made it back to Trailerhassee ok. LOL!

That part was DUMB true money.

Before Canespace, I seriously thought that internet chatting was for weirdos, rapists, and pedophiles. I've now learned to trust technology, as well as the words of complete strangers. 86 is that dude.

DrewZ2

After every loss its always off with shannon's head wtf is this?

We have made progress in every year under shannon correct?

Anyone who thinks depth is not a problem - it is

We didnt deserve to win that game with all those penalties, turnovers, missed tackles/ blown coverages

Whipple should get ZERO blame.. we put up what 36 points?

Now if you can't see progress or still hate Shannon read this: In year one with those types of players, after Jacory's pick 6 we def would have packed our bags and said game over we give.. but no these kids fought and brought the game to overtime - so the kids he has brought in all have "THE ATTITUDE" - now depth is killing us at LB and DL so notice all the recruits at those positions that Randy is bringing in- - give the man 6 years and we will be right back in the glory days where we can RELOAD year in and year out

Hey year 3 and Randy already had us flirting with a possible NC and 2 years in a row hunting for the ACCCG so how hungry do u think that makes these kids?

THE BEST IS STILL COMING

Canez1

I'm with dlu here about RS D.

It has been the same thing for many years now.

BASIC!!!

Especially when you have such a beat up DL. You have to get pressure on the Qb in other ways anyway you can.

There was absolutely no deep threat outside of Spiller.

I believe when Spence was out injured that F'd things up a bit but you have to adjust.

It is what it is I guess but still bothers me to see absolutely no passrush at times and see our DB's out on an island for way too long trying to cover guys.

Make no doubt about it. This D is RS's. Lovett is a technique teacher and that is it.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

86Cane

Money...U and your lovely wife are ALWAYS a bonus to me. U are good peeps and FUN to hang with.

BTW...U got any left over ribs??? LOL

Did I mention that JSQ has dull colored eyes?

See below:

Va Cane just made a great post. Thank you.

Look guys, we just lost to a good team that played great.

We can certainly blame all the things that went wrong and be accurate doing so. Coaching, players, injuries and everything in between.

We're still a lot better than last year. These young players are the real deal. While there aren't yet enough of them on this team we all need to just grab hold of a rail.

Why?

Because we all knew that this would be a wild ride back to the top. Yesterday was a bump in the road and we all knew bumps would be on the way. Our best players are Soph's and you can't be world beaters at 19.

We need improvement and we ARE improving.

Go Canes
