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

Posted by: JSQ | November 09, 2009 at 12:10 PM

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Caneslegend

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

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.

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.)

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.

shwarma

TCF - I have a response for your conspiracy theory. Night games the team is amped for, noon opponents usually suck. Hence, why the result for 3:30 games. IDK just a thought really

Charlie Brown

Carolina, the ACC's top-ranked defensive unit, held Duke to 125 total yards of offense. The Tar Heels limited the Blue Devils to 113 yards passing, more than 212 yards below Duke's season average entering the game (Duke was averaging 325.1 yards passing).

• UNC held Duke to just 43 yards on 26 plays in the second half, 1.7 yards per play. In the first half, the Blue Devils gained minus-four rushing yards.

• The 125 yards are the fewest allowed by Carolina this season (previous was 153 by The Citadel). It's the fewest since Clemson had 91 yards in 1996.

• Duke rushed for 12 yards, the fewest by a UNC opponent this year (previous 30 by The Citadel). It's the fewest since Wake Forest had minus-two yards in 2000.

• Carolina has held seven of nine opponents to 17 points or less this season.

• The teams combined for 25 points, the lowest-scoring Carolina-Duke game since a 16-3 Tar Heel win in 1977.

• The 19 points by Carolina are the fewest by the winning team in the UNC-Duke series since a 17-15 Tar Heel victory in Durham in 1984.

Charlie Brown

Junior cornerback Charles Brown picked off his third pass of the season and the sixth of his career. He returned the interception 54 yards to set up a Casey Barth field goal in the third quarter. It was Carolina's longest interception return of the season. The return was the second-longest return of any kind this season by a Tar Heel, trailing only Da'Norris Searcy's 77-yard punt return against The Citadel.

• Sophomore placekicker Casey Barth connected on four field goals (40, 29, 41 and 33 yards) for the first time in his career (previous was three against Notre Dame in 2008). He has now made his last nine attempts over a five-game stretch. Barth is 14-for-16 on the season, and his 41-yarder today was his longest of the season and second-longest of his career (42 yards vs. Notre Dame, 2008).

• Freshman Jheranie Boyd scored on a three-yard run in the fourth quarter for the game's first touchdown and his first on the ground in his career. He has now scored in two straight games after catching a 13-yard TD pass last week at Virginia Tech.

• North Carolina had a punt blocked for the first time since 2006 when Duke's Jordan Byas blocked and recovered a Grant Shallock punt in the first quarter. Wake Forest's Alphonso Smith had the last blocked punt against UNC in 2006.

j.w.

We have heard this story about UNC- three or four times in recent years. :) This year, hopefully our motivation is much different than in the past.

This team is different and the fact that it's being pointed out that we haven't won in unc before, those are the type of challenges these guys on this team love, they'll come out ready to play, believe that. The offense, if we can run the ball effectively, unc won't have a chance the problem though is, we can't give up points on special teams like we did this week, won't be that easy to overcome giving a team like unc with that defense points. We know butch is coming after our special teams for sure.

Other than that, we limit the turn-overs this game we should win by 2 or more touchdowns, the thing is, this offense suits our defense beer because it's just as simple as our defense has been. We all know butch gets oc's who are conservative as hell but run a pro-style attack, run, run pass, run, run, run. Play-action pass deep, etc. etc. He'll try and run some trick stuff against us too.

I like this match-up, jacory will need to speed the clock in his head up a litle longer. Also, i don't know how many times an announcer is going to keep referring to hankerson as a tight-end, but that has to be funny.

Berry, MJ and Coop play like they have been, it will take a lot of heat off Jacory.

We come out fast Yates won't have the horses to stay with us.

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN – Jason Fox, Miami, OT, Sr., 6-7, 314, Fort Worth, Texas (North Crowley)
Miami senior offensive tackle Jason Fox’s second Offensive Lineman of the Week honor came after he helped anchor an offensive line that made space for a Hurricane offense that piled up season-highs of 515 yards and 268 rushing yards in Miami’s 52-17 win over visiting Virginia. Fox graded out at 98 percent, had five pancake blocks, and did not allow a sack

Just read the new posting... Not good but excellent research by all.

Agree... this game is no gimmy and Butch will have every player primed to attack our weaknesses. Spread them wide for a quick pop up the middle with a crossing route or let the QB loose for a quick gainer.

Expect the unexpected from the master... anything to get an edge is the order of the day.

He might not have the horse power we have but he knows how to fine tune an engine.

I called that on Sunday afternoon. Those good ol' boy F.S.U. suits would have to be crazy as a bedbug, to have St. Bobby coach another season.

And with the kid under center this Sabado, no way does Bowden's good ol' fellas win out. Guarantee it!

Yeah, yeah I understand some of U'all Hurricane fandom have feelings for St. Bobby and all. But the man should have retired two or three seasons ago, but his HYPER-INFLATED ego got in the way of any degree of sensibility he had.

Chit, Bowden's too far behind Pappa Paterno to catch him, so why is he still hanging on to the impossible task. LOL

Nonetheless, he's one of the few major college coaches who wasn't afraid to play N.F.L. U

What the F*CK U's talking about! Carolina's D-unit is in the national team Top 20 in most categories.

bUbba, U's should lay off the domestic beer before High Noon. U dig!

As WISE Miami fandom know by now, this Saturday's A.C.C. showdown will be Miami's relatively most difficult game. Especially with an injury riddled Cane D-unit.

Field postion and turnovers will determine the outcome of this one baby. Because each squads strengths "check" each others relative weaknesses.

Plus, I don't like the tangible fact that Davis' Carolina squad own Miami. Perhaps that will change come 6:45 EST.

Mac - Cat was talking about the O mainly in the post, I think you need to lay off the bloggeroids, you dig? (couldn't resist myself, apolgies extended)

WE NEED TO SCORCH THE EARTH WITH TARHEEL BLOOD KILL OR BE KILLED COME SATURDAY

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Legend, I have absolutely no problem with criticism, as long as it's legit, like our STs performance being so NOT special for the past four years.

OR the way the team hadn't really come out on fire on both sides of the ball this season, Wake and VT being the worst examples.

I'm right there with you and anyone else when being concerned about this but I'm not throwing the coaching staff under the bus. That's all I'm saying.

I've called for both Sharpton and Sam to be escorted from the field at different points but they have clearly improved and I can't praise anyone other than the staff, something no one ever likes to do.

That's all I'm saying.

Now, to answer your question about STs I think Fluzzi absolutely must go or become permanent TEs coach and bring Sol back to coach STs.

Either Fluzzi can't split his attention and handle both duties or he sucks as a STs coach.

His ineptitude arguably cost us the Clemson game, gave a huge momentum boost to VT and even OU, and kept UVA in the game. That game should've been 27-0 at the half or something close to it.


To me, FLUZZI IS A BUST. lol After four years I think we can confidently say that he';s been given just about every chance and opportunity to show and prove.

Esteban

actually Jason Fox gave up his first sack of his career i think against UVA last week.

>>>>

Solar, I agree about J12 with that mental clock. Against UCF he seemed just a little too cool. I don't know if he can zip the passes more at this point without disrupting his rhythm but quicker reads and releases would be great.

To though this game is all about our OL's intensity and focus from the beginning of the game. They've had plenty of experience as a unit, good and bad, so there's really no excuse for them to come out flat. They've faced DL's as good or better than UNC's so no excuses. This is the money game.

I still think we have too much for UNC, solid defense and all. BUT if we're not focused and let them stay in it, anything could happen.

Esteban

yeah Matt

Edwin Pope is the greatest sports writer in South Florida history:

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Macjones, UNC's won two games against Cokerites and half-Cokerites. GT was the same way even worse..4 years.

I'm still not sure who UNC has played, other than UConn and UVA and VT. I'll do some analysis and be back.

DrewZ2

Esteban -> i dont think that sack counts against Fox since there was a facemask penalty on the person making the tackle

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Shwarma, being disdainful to the rest of CFB is the very definition of CSROH. haha

Having said that, I've caught a few of Cinci's games by chance over the last few years and they've always looked sharp and well-coached, not really talented but they execute well, sort of a slightly bigger and faster Boisie.

But still, it would almost be an embarrassment to actually know the name of Cinci's HC. And if I did learn it, it should be soon forgotten. hahaha

Well there goes hoping that FSU would upset UF in the last game of the season with Ponder gone for the year.

To me, FLUZZI IS A BUST. lol After four years I think we can confidently say that he';s been given just about every chance and opportunity to show and prove.

Yeah the special teams has costed us big this year. Kicking the spiller. 4 blocked punts. The blocked punt by VT at the end of the second qt and that really changed the game. Man other coach's have been fired for sucking. I think its his turn to go. I agree with J12 mental clock. NC got that nasty pass rush..

I turned off the FSU/UNC game before all the fireworks started. What was FSU doing to tear up UNC's secondary the way they did?
