Duke game is at noon. Sigh. Another 3am wake up for the JSQ.

It's a tough life, but somebody has to live it! Really don't see why 3 AM is necessary, but hey, if that's what it takes to get the tailgate organized and to the stadium on time, then I guess sacrifices must be made.

CGNC

Nice work DZ8. We can't have the Wake or Clemson team effort show up.

Troubs...welcome to The Space. Post here, post often!

CGNC...DZ8 ans SolarCane both contributed to the article. And I agree, we will need our BEST effort to win the game 34-20, just as I predicted!

"...not to be confused for Canespace’s Charlie Brown, who leads the nation in eclipses produced."

That was funny! Maybe a UM/Canespace "trucker hat" would be in order here! It might throw off the overall size of the dome!

Go 'canes!

pb(CSROH10)

I don't see us scoring 34 in this game.

This one could be a replica of the OU game.

Troubs

Email on the way 86Cane! Thanks again

CGNC

Canez1 - most likely driving up for the day - unless it is a night game.....then who knows....

Larry Johnson cut by the Chiefs

He might actually be happy about it b/c they're 1-7

CGNC, kickoff is at 3:30pm.

j.w.

Troubs, nice work! And more photos next time, please. :)

So, I saw Frank Gore run live and in person yesterday. Why the Niners didn't give him more carries is killing me right now. It cost them the win yesterday.

86Cane

Blount reinstated at Oregon.

CGNC

JSQ - yeah just saw that on the Acc site - my home computer crashed so I am a little behind ;-D

Canez1

Shwarm LMAO!!! That chic is just how I like em!!!! Check the Av

DAYUM!!!!

CG ya the game is at 3:30 so I think we are gonna meet up and drive in together earlier.

Where Soilar at??

GO CANEZ!!!!!

86 - what a surprise, ha.

They get beat by Stanford, basically costing them any shot in the BCS title game and they now have to win out in order to win the Pac-10

They still handled the whole situation 1,000 times better than Urban Myth with Spikes. The Crocs looked like complete morons in handling that situation with the half game suspension in the beginning

Hence, the distraction put out there by Urban Myth about the late hit on QB #15 by the UGA player - to take everyone's minds off of what Spikes did and the horrible handling of it by UiF

DZ8

Great job with the editing/pictures as always 86. I'm starting to like that shade of tarheel blue... been staring at it for awhile.

CGNC

If you look at the NC map up there it doesn't look like Chapel Hill is that far from Charlotte but I can get up to Va Tech in the same amount of time, maybe 5 minutes more - LMAO Canez1 sounds like he is ready NOW!

Matt Drudge

UNC may have a good D, but that doesn't mean our O need to be scared of them. Blitzing defenses have had success against our O, so I think Butch may blitz more often than he does usually. We can run the ball on any one unlike Duke, so that should open up the passing game. Jacory and the receivers need to be sharp and UNC needs to be crushed!

Our D should be fired up from the get go and take away all the short passes and the run. We are good against the run, but our back 7 need to take away the screen passes too.

What's the weather going to be like?

CGNC

LOL Matt UNC also has TJ Yates who without Nicks this year is a mere mortal

DZ8

Forgot to ask anyone... is DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson on the Thorpe list. If he isn't why TF not?! This kid has like 10 picks on the year (they come at great times of the game), and I loved the way when he picked Ponder at the end and the QB was running out there to make the stop... he pointed at him before he laid into him. LOVED seeing that (nothing against Ponder, just great fire/passion on McDaniels part).

I will research McDaniel some more 'cause lord knows the Dolphins could use a ballhawking free safety.

I'd settle for a clutch receiver!

Go Dolphin's
Go 'canes!

DZ8

CGNC thanks. Solar got their more glamorous defense but 86 spiced my section up with a pic and a map.

We need a complete game at UNC. U are going to be there... U are still in charge of timeouts right? Use them wisely... got a feeling we need to make them count this game.

Caneslegend

Nice article...This could be our toughest game of the year...Butch always wants to beat us and he will have his boys ready...And we have never won there before and that is big hurdle to overcome. Canes Optimist I understand your point of being balanced but balance come with criticism. These kids get full ride to a school and performance and criticism is what they signed up for. I feel a player is under performing. We should call him out. Just the other day Shandel called out the coaching staff after the wake forest game. That was prob the worse coached game I have seen this year. Did he have a right to call them out? Sure because if that is the type of product they are putting on the field they deserved to be critiqued. Saying Randy is okay, learning on the job, or its going to take time...Okay I agree but there comes a time when someone has to be acountable and that is fans job. I am not calling for him to get fired because next year and the year after will be the true test for this coaching staff. NC will be coming for us and we can't sleep on T.J. Yates he is a good quarterback he just hasn't had the wide receiver help. And the reason I questioned you (Canes Optimist)about Cincy's coach because he is one of the best head coach's in the country and he has turned a program that was irrelevant to a BCS contender. I consider him a good coach. And one whose name pomped around before we hired Randy. Thats all.

Go Canes

DZ8

It takes a year or two for receivers to develop. I have faith in our guys, except for Ginn, in the clutch.

We need to develop (or just get) a #1 so that Ginn can wreak havoc as a secondary option. IMO

CGNC

DZ8 - yes I have not relinquished the timeouts back to the coaches until they prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they can handle them

DZ8

I don't remember Kellys name popping up before Shannon. I remember Mike Leach being brought up.

DZ8

Good idea CGNC

Posted by: DZ8 | November 09, 2009 at 01:26 PM

I stand corrected your right it was Leach...I confuse those two sometimes because they both like to be pass happy.

Matt Drudge

LOL Matt UNC also has TJ Yates who without Nicks this year is a mere mortal

Posted by: CGNC | November 09, 2009 at 01:18 PM

I agree CGNC. Given our D's success in making subpar QBs look spectacular with the short passes/ screens, it all depends on how sharp the D shows up at game time. From the youtube link someone posted two blogs ago, UVA D did a great job on Yates and co.

CGNC

Last two UNC games have come down to the last play of the game - in 2007 we were marching down the field and ready to score until Kyle threw a pick. In 2008 Marve threw a pick. This year will be different

As for TJ Yates a good dose of Allen Bailey wouldn't hurt

dawgmeatcane

We have been down this road before i.e. their O is ranked dead last, they RB is hurt, their QB sucks and then soon as the game starts we make these guys look like Marino and whatever world beater out there. just saying

Matt Drudge

Also, it is absolutely essential we come out swinging and not let UNC go up on the scoreboard like they did against FSU this year (and in 2007 against us).

Matt Drudge

Did you all catch Doc Walker's comment on Brandon Washington on Saturday? LOL. I think it is part of Rusty's highlights too.

Yates does not suck bro...He lost some great talent last year and his O-line hasn't been that good. And there offensive cordinator makes Nix look good. Yates is a threat and we must be on our toes.

CGNC

Matt that happened in 2007 - they got way ahead of us and we were playing catch up. With Kyle. Good times :-(

Preach on, brother, preach on!

DZ8

I first noticed Kelly a couple of years ago when Cincinnatti lost something like 7 QBs and still kept winning.

I was in favor of hiring Leach before Randy till I realized we wouldn't be able to keep Randy as defensive co-ordinator (he would go to Texas if he didn't get the head coching job here). When I looked at losing a lifelong Cane with great connections to the community and a proven record as a defensive co-ordinator I decided I didn't want Leach at that cost. (The administration didn't ask me anyways for the record.)

86Cane

GO CANES!

dawgmeatcane

that must have came off way I was just speaking in gereral everybody seem to have their best game against us, DO NOT SPARE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THIS GAME COME OUT SWINGIN' AND HIT EVERYTHING THAT MOVES

Lol, yes!

Doc Walker love the Canes. I met his brother up here and had some beers with him. This was a few years back. Good guy.

Call me paranoid, but I can't believe the NC game is at 3:30PM. The last three games scheduled at 3:30 resulted in a UM loss to VT 31-7, UM loss to Clemson 40-37 in OT, and a lucky win at Wake Forest 28-27. I don't think bodes well for us. I just hope this time Miami shows up to play.

Charlie Brown

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Ryan Houston ran for a career-high 164 yards and Jheranie Boyd scored the clinching touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to help North Carolina beat Duke 19-6 on Saturday.

Charles Brown also came up with a key interception late in the third quarter as part of a dominating defensive performance for the Tar Heels (6-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shut down Thad Lewis and the prolific passing attack that had carried the Blue Devils (5-4, 3-2) to three straight victories.

With the win, Carolina earned two points in the Carlyle Cup all-sports competition between the Tar Heels and Blue Devils. Carolina leads the 2009-10 edition by a 5.5 to 2.0 score.


Duke finished with 125 total yards and had to fight for every one of them. The Tar Heels didn't have much offensive success, but they wore down the Blue Devils behind Houston after starting tailback Shaun Draughn went out with an early shoulder injury.

Houston finished with a career-high 37 carries, including 10 on the clock-draining drive that ended with Boyd's touchdown with 6:57 left.

He also had the lead block on Matt Daniels that allowed Boyd to get to the right pylon on a 3-yard end-around that made it a two-possession game.

Not a bad performance for a guy who typically served as the short-yardage and goal-line back and had never had more than 18 carries or 74 yards rushing in a game. Then again, the Tar Heels didn't have much choice after Draughn injured his left shoulder on a 9-yard gain on the Tar Heels' first offensive play and didn't return.

North Carolina didn't manage much offense outside of Houston.

T.J. Yates threw for just 119 yards and the Tar Heels had to rely on a career-high four field goals from Casey Barth.

But they're now one win from bowl eligibility--though their last home game is next week against No. 16 Miami, followed by trips to Boston College and rival North Carolina State to close the regular season.
