New article from Justin at The Miami Hurricane student newspaper:

SJMPARMAN

I voted for the two road wins. I think we will squeak out a victory against OSU and absolutely blow out Pitt, who I think is way overrated. The FSU game is a real trap game on the schedule, coming after three consecutive ranked opponents. I fear injuries will happen, and if they happen in the wrong places, OL or MLB, it could make FSU difficult. I think FSU will have one loss by then (maybe even 2) and will need a win badly.

I think we easily handle NC this year. But VT is a talented team on offense. They are loaded at running backs this year and they did dominate us last year. I am still concerned about stopping running quarterbacks and Tyrod Taylor is a good runner and an improved passer. While I don't think their defense will be as good early in the year they get the advantage of playing us late in the year. I think that game will be for the division so it will be tough.

orange 'n green in the vein

I voted for the upsets, I actually think The 'Stache could be the tougher opponent. They ran a really efficient pro-set power I offense last year at times.

pb

IMO there's no way a one dimensional team like Pitt, breaking in a new QB making his first start ever against a defense like ours, can beat us.

And Wannstedt is so freaking conservative there's no way he lets a young kid take any chances.

They have a hell of a young RB, but he'll be lucky to survive the game if he tries to run him 30 times.

Six

I think it will be an interesting match up for the Canes DBs to go up against the Pitt WRs ... Brandon Harris has to be matched up to Johnathan Baldwin

Baldwin is a legit 6'5 230 lb WR who had over 1,100 yards receiving last year and 8 TDs

The other Pitt WR will most likely be Mike Shanahan, a 6'5 220 lb kid - who knows which Cane will draw him

I don't even really think twice about how Brandon Harris is going to be this year - last year he made me shake my head a few times though on coverages or how he played a WR off the line .. but he still made more plays than he missed

Brandon showed a lot in the FSU game, when he was called for a bullsh*t PI at the end of the game on a 3rd & 3 with :17 seconds left on the Miami 9, which allowed FSU an extra 4 downs -but- he came up HUGE when matched against a taller WR (Fortson) on the very next play when FSU tried a fade route up top


Funny that the 2 DEs for Pitt who make the most impact are from Ft.Liquordale and Coral Springs ... just more players to add to the well known fact that everyone recruits the state of Florida, and usually those players don't exactly sit the bench


Six

Pitt also has 3 new OLineman, at both Guard spots and Center

Dion Lewis between the Tackles? Would be surprised to see if they run him primarily there

They have 12 days to prepare for the Canes .. actually, it's more like 21 days to prepare for the Canes b/c they play Utah as their first game on 9/2, then they play New Hampshire on 9/11 and then play the Canes on 9/23

They shouldn't even take more than 2 days to prepare for New Hampshire - they'll be looking forward to the Canes hours after they play Utah their first game

"He was very forthcoming about what happened at the end," Schlabach said. "I'll be honest, I tried to get a little more out of him than he was willing to give. He told me over and over that he didn't want this to be a book about Bobby Bowden being mad.

"He said, 'I tried to be nice and classy, but I had to tell the truth.' I think he's upset about how it was handled."

….Defensive end Allen Bailey said he’s impressed with freshman offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson. The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Henderson is “ a strong dude. Kind of agile for a big boy.” Bailey is arguably the strongest player on the roster, but said using his strength against Henderson “would waste a lot of energy.”

Tiger...if you are gonna post a comment on our blog don't come sneakin' in around 1:40 AM. Man up and be more upfront about it and check in around 8 PM tonight for some lively discussion.

In fact I challenege U to post three reasons why Clemson beats Miami in 2010?

And U can leave out home field advantage, we will graciously give you 3 points for that but not a victory.

'I'm out to close my garage door before DZ gets over here"
-solar

This dude is hilarious...ROTFL!

All-Time LOF: Offense Steve Walsh (the accuracy and touch on his passes was amazing). HM: Kevin Williams

Defense: Rusty Medearis, Sean Taylor & Tiger Clark (most passionate and balled out of control in big games).

Seantrel has been stoning AB in practice...I knew it..lol!

Heard Shannon had twin boys on the way: Justin Nicholas ("just a nick") and Flaron ("flyin aroun") Can Shannon stop saying"freshmens" out of context and also stop calling Seantrel....Shantrell..I know girls named Chantrell...lol!


SOUP

Tiger...there are several of us going to the Clemson game. We would love to meet up for some FRIENDLY tailgating. We'll take photos and put you and your possee up on our blog. If you are interested in having some rivalry fun email me at:

Tiger, something like this:

Best QB we'll play this season: Christian Ponder (including whomever we play in a bowl game).

Hardest game this season: FSU

Pitt is a tougher team than OSU, but the OSU game will be tougher because of the hype and refs (they will try to impact the game..especially in the "High Heel"). Pitt would beat OSU head to head.

DZ8

Thank you Native!!! The Early Bird is SO convenient on The Space.

DZ8

I'll just wait outside your garage with a tub full of Kool Aid, the orange and green kind solar!

DZ8

People who think Clemson is going to be a pushover now that Spiller is hurting the Dolphins twice a year are in for a rude wake up.

They have excellent talent on their defensive line AND secondary.

They have returning starters on the o line.

A talented, returning QB and two talented RBs that got PT last year.

Also that game is AT Clemson *after* we play Ohio St and Pittsburgh.

Sebastian

Unless F$U somehow improves that poor D alot from last year, they will not hang with the `Canes for a full 4

I dont think we as fans have quite been able to grasp how dominate this D is going to be

We have fallen in love with the O and rightfully so but this D will be able to shut down the opponents more then in previous years

Nation be an alert!!!!!

Zakkee

Thats true DZ8..Clemson will be tough. OSU would 7-5 vs. our schedule this year and UF would be 9-3.

SOUP, thanks for going back to a 2007 post that you vaulted...to make me look stupid..lol!

I guzzled the kool-aid straight back then. The worst part was that I asked for it...kids...smh.

Zakkee

We haven't been able to grasp it because we haven't seen it.

I agree that the defense will be very good, but they aint dominating if Jacory throws 17 int's again. I don't know why people would be in love with the offense. It played inconsistently in 50% of our games last season: Wake, UNC, Clemson, VT, Duke, Wisconsin and set the defense up to fail with turnovers.

For years I thought

Kool Aid Induced Optimism Syndrome or KAIO was unique to Canespace.

Then I stumbled upon this and find Captain Optimist moonlights in Japan

Looking over some of our opponents strength this coming season


Here is the UNC defensive backs 2009
hihite reel
I appears 12 of their opponents qbs had sore thumbs the day they played UNC.

Give these dudes credit they were in the right place at the right time every time no matter who they were playing

solarcane

And that drumming in the James Brown Payback song is pure funkalisious.

DZ8

What did J12 have before the UNC game? 12 picks in 9 games?
see solar, I can do rational

On the plus side he didn't throw any picks his last two games!

solarcane

DZ Jacory will throw some picks again because hes a gunslinger, and I love that wants to throw deep and strike quick.

He is bigger and stronger and he won't get a lot of those same throws picked this time around.

solarcane

back in awhile

Thats the wrong one .. now i cant find it...

I guess this kid is transferring to come play for Coach Morris

Cade Kreuter .. 6'5 195 lb kid - which means he has some raw power that he'll grow into

He was mainly used as DH for USC last year, didn't field a ball all year long

70 At Bats .. .243 BA .. 3 HR .. 6 RBI .. 12 BB .. 4 HBP .. 37 Ks (insanely too many)

He had the 2nd most walks on the team but led the team in strikeouts - weird

I'll still take this kid as a possible DH over how Ryan Perry was at the plate this year at DH for the Canes

On September 2nd, 2009, #11 Miami defeated Florida A&M 48-16 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. The Rattlers struck first as kicker Trevor Scott booted a 32 yard field goal, but it was all Hurricanes after that.

Miami scored 31 unanswered points as Leonard Hankerson and Jimmy Graham each caught touchdown passes from Jacory Harris. Mike James and Lee Chambers also had short touchdown runs. Miami would predominantly feature backup players in the second half, and that led to the Rattlers having some success offensively.

However, it was unwittingly a strategy that might have seen the Hurricanes find their featured tailback for the upcoming season in then seldom-used Damien Berry. Berry ran for 162 yards on just 14 carries and played his way into becoming part of a three-back rotation for UM for the rest of the season.

Hey native, nice link to the 30 for 30 opening credits but I think that its funny that the #1 suggestion on the right of the page for that video is Lada Gaga - Bad Romance. LOL.

DZ8- You are absolutly right. You guys should listen to him.

Soup- Reason #1 We are 2-1 against Miami in the last 3 meetings. (Yes I know you guys beat us up here)

Reason # 2 We still have the QB that ripped your secondary to shreads last yr.

Reason #3 Our two RB (Ellington & Harper) are more that capapable of replacing Spiller.

And just for junk talking purposes- Reason #4 Jacory Harris is good but is HIGHLY overated.

And I will definitely take you up on the tailgating invite. That's what we do up here. I just hope you are willing to get to the game 8 hrs early because thats how we do.

And to everyone else, don't get so upset. Junk talking is what college football is all about. You guys should know that because Canes fans are the best at it.
