OSU is not the toughest team we'll play and I think we'll shut Pryor down and expose his limitations, which are many. He's a very gifted athlete but he's not a gifted QB...yet. I'll be surprised if we lose.

AND NOW A SUMMARY OF COMMENTS FROM THE INFAMOUS CAPTAIN O:

Pryor's not a punk but he crumples on impact like a crash test dummy. And he's going to get pounded and hounded like he's never been on 9-11. It's comical to me how many of y'all still fall for this OSU mystique bullshyt. Their home field advantage should prevent this from being a beatdown, that's about all it will do.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 07, 2010 at 08:35 AM


But these two plays (run up the middle/TE over the middle) are what OSU will try because they saw it worked last year with Clemson and Wisky. So IF we lose to OSU it will be because Barrow, Lovett and Shannon haven't brought C-Mac, Buchanon and Spence and maybe even K-Rob up to speed on how to sniff out that play. We know they have the speed to cover so that's not the problem.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 07, 2010 at 08:26 AM


Pryor might improve if they played Oregon or some other big ten school again. But against Us he's going to have flashbacks of USC 2008, 2009. That was the last time he played a team full of athletes as talented as he was. But even if he's improved, who are his weapons? Posey...yeah, more or less. Sein..solid, smart, tough, enough speed to do some damage.

Who else? The TE looks to get more work this year and he can catch on occasion. But all of it depends on Pryor having time and being able to decode our D. I don't think he'll be able to do either. The more I watch that OL the less impressed I am.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 07, 2010 at 08:42 AM


#1...Because we match-up very, very well with them on both sides of the ball- players, strategically and tactically. Their scheme on offense and defense relies on having better athletes OR, as in the case with Oregon, having a ton of time to prepare. Posey is the only real, sort of, threat they have. They haven't played a team like ours since USC 2008, a team that matches them athlete for athlete and trumps them with tactics and strategy.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 07, 2010 at 10:36 AM


OSU is maybe the fourth or fifth toughest game on our schedule. FSU, Pitt and VT have better and more dangerous offenses.

PITT is tougher than OSU because they can really run the ball. You want to see a real power OL? Watch Pitt's from last year. Our toughest games will be FSU and maybe VT, followed closely by UNC, strictly because of match-ups and tactics.

When taken together- talent, tactics, strategy, physical and mental maturity, and team unity, it becomes clear how and why one team will or will not beat another. For us against OSU it's simply a very good match-up of strengths and weaknesses, aside from the fact that OSU is overrated.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 06, 2010 at 11:27 AM


Vince, yeah, they'll definitely try that Big Ten physical football jazz. But if we're playing proper Hurricane Football or even something close to it, it won't really matter.

The Dee line does it's job and gets pressure on Pryor and if we can cover a T.E.,then this will be a picnic 24 -13. Those 2 things have to happen, if not and we continue our patterns from the past and let medicre throwing Q.B's have all day to throw, then we're done for.

We CANNOT lose them. We need to win and send a message.

Losing is gonna leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth. Especially with two more road games coming up.

Plus, I would love to shut the arrogant Buckeyes up. All of them think that we have no chance.

U gotta read the blog son! I already posted them the other day:

1. UM must score over 30 points. Scoring EARLY and OFTEN is a key. We must turn OSU into a passing team, not allow them to be a power running team like they prefer.

2. UM must win the turnover battle.

3. UM must win special teams.

4. Shannon must outcoach Tressel.

4. The Hurricane cheerleaders MUST be HOT!

Its tough for me to put these kind of expectations on a Fr. but a huge key(on the offense) to not only this game but a major portion of this season is going to be Lamar Miller. I hope he is ready to handle the bright lights

Stay warm, stay dry!

ChicagoCane

IUCane - I agree with you. The weather is very concerning and ANYONE saying it is not needs to re-watch the Va Tech game last year. Although weather was not the only factor, it played a definitive role in the loss.

The Canes are a high-octane offense, not a pound it out on the ground team - particularly against O$U's run defense.

360Cane

Funny watching ESPN First Take today. All kinds of "Buckeye talk" on the show including Robert Smith and Jay Crawford who are Buckeyes. As Jay and Dana (Dana being from Meechigan) talked about how many people work at ESPN from Meechigan and Ohio State, taking too much time up from the show. Jay says,
"My producer is yelling in my ear to move on. He's from the University of Miami." I love it!

ChicagoCane

A sloppy field spells immediate trouble for the Canes. Granted - Pryor will not be able to do his thing on that type of field. However, a pound it out running game favors the suckeyes.

Old Skool

Sloppy field... Here's hoping Hill has the game of his life.

360Cane

@Chi

"C'MON MAN!"

But didn't VT play in the same rain? Won't OSU be playing in the same rain?

Last years VT loss had nothing to do with weather. Remember, our team is from So Flo where we've been having El Nino happening all summer.

We lost to VT last year due to youth and being outplayed. No one on that team experienced the media hype they were given and all the public hoopla from the fans. And since you don't have that leader on your team to keep your head on straight (Ed Reed) then you will have a tough time getting your head back around and really grasp what it takes to keep the hype and hoopla. Just accept it, bro. VT squarely punched us in the mouth last year.

Good thing they learned it last year, huh? We can at least get that out of the way this year. The only team beating Miami is Miami. Period!

WE READY!!!

GO CANES!!!

raizecane

I hope that RS and his staff looked at the Florida / OSU Championship game from a few years ago and implement it into his game plan for tomorrow.

Establish the run and dink and dunk them to death. No need to go deep every time.

I expect Berry and especially Miller to have a good game on the ground.

J-12 WONT throw an int and one of the TE's will catch a TD!

AB will get his first sack of the season on Saturday!

27-17 MIAMI! and if you dont know, now U know!

SJMPARMAN

I have really gone back and forth in my mind over this game. First I thought we would squeak by a win, but then I saw the Marshall film, and looked at the offensive line play of OSU, and began having serious doubts. Now if Tressel thinks he is going to win by studying the Wisky film then maybe I am back on the fence a little. Wisky was a product of a bad field which slowed down our offense, and, lets face it, a deep senior laden Wisky D line that shut down our running game, even D Berry. It may rain tomorrow but the field won't be that bad. I'll make a final post later tonight with a score prediction. And OSU defensive line is not anywhere near as good as Wisky was last year.

j.w.

This is a tough one. We look much, much better in all phases of the game (except tackling early against FAMU) but we have played terrible in the past few years in games outside of Florida. OSU looks like a faster team than they typically field, but they can't win when it matters (Karma biting them after the game that shall not be mentioned). If we return a kick, we win. But my head tells me they squeak by, 28-23.

I looked at a lot of the clips of the Marshall game on Youtube last evening and i am no expert, but after watching those clips i was more impressed with Ohio State's d-line play than their o-line.

Bahama, j.w...gothchU!

solarcane

I'm thinking the same as pb

Jacory gets time and reads the defense we win going away.

Jacory gets creamed and starts heaving the ball up we lose big time.

One way or the other my heart says this won't be a close game no matter who wins.

Ouch

86Cane

The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Pryor is two inches taller and 40 pounds heavier, yet there's plenty of statistical similarities. Both have played 27 games. Pryor has combined to run and pass for 5,079 yards and 46 touchdowns, while Harris — more of a thrower, not so much of a runner — has 4,636 yards and 42 touchdowns.

They share this in common, too: Both are ardent followers of LeBron James, the longtime Buckeyes fan and new Miami Heat star.

"I told him I owe him a show," said Pryor, who's urging Ohio State fans not to boo James — who scorned Cleveland to join Miami this summer — if he shows up on Saturday and calls the two-time NBA MVP his mentor. "Next time he comes, I told him I have to give him a show, because we lost the last time he came to Penn State, 13-6."

Given that, maybe having James there would be good luck for Miami, even though he predicts an Ohio State win.

"Hopefully he'll show up," Harris said, undeterred by James' prediction. "That's on him. That's LeBron James. I'm not going to be mad at him."

Even if James is there, most eyes will be on the quarterbacks.

And that speaks volumes about how vital they will be on Saturday.

I guess its a talking point for the blog. I think our play calling on offense will create several mismatches that OSU has not seen in awhile. With that being said the my real key to the game is keeping J12's jersey clean. Bottom line. Only concern on defense is the LB's taking correct angles on Pryor. He has the best stiff arm in college football. As a tackler you must pursue and keep the feet pedaling thru the stiffarm.

Im as diehard as the next guy on here so my score prediction favors the canes.

"I tell a story at luncheons that I was the first new head coach to win a national championship in 53 years. Bennie Oosterbaan did it at Michigan. He got fired the very next year. I remind myself of that as I go out and do this thing. Maybe that's why we did well this year. You know what? I'm not safe yet."

Hurri'

The angel on my shoulder says........31-20 UM

The red dude on the other shoulder says........34-17 OSU

I don't see it being within ten points either way.

I like that we're underestimated and OSU is overrated. Works in our favor!

Leaving the 727 for the 305 in 15 to meet friends and family for the game.

Everyone be safe this weekend! And remember...

WE READY!!!

All right, back to focusing on Ohio State.

Not worried about the field. OSU has field turf which shouldn't be an issue as a natural grass field.

Canes - 34

OSU - 20

Remember, y'all, a point spread is set at a number that ensures equal $ on both sides. If too much money is on one side, there is actually a chance that a bookie could lose money; if the two sides have equal money, the bookie always makes money off the vigorish.

So when you've got a team like OSU, backed by an enormous fan base that's chock full of idiots, you have to set the spread pretty big in order to ensure that you get enough people betting the other side.

If Vegas (or any bookie) really thought OSU were a significantly superior team, you would see a much bigger spread -- like a couple touchdowns.

orange 'n green in the vein

Top pull the upset on the road you must be able to stop and run the ball respectively on defense and offense.

Just one early TD won't silence the crowd, two will, TD and a FG early will do the job half as well.

If they win the turnover battle they will have a chance to win the game on the last drive if it's +2 or more.

I have a new entry for the poll -

Miami MUST contain TP and force him to make bad decisions. If we can do that, we win.

Posted by: raizecane | September 10, 2010 at 12:40 PM

Huh? We have already SEEN Terry Porter make bad decisions. But I don't think he will be there this time.

50% on the case...

Ungar

360 Cane, I hope to GOD that it doesn't get to overtime.

I want a 21 point lead in the first quarter, and then hearing the announcers wondering if Jacory Harris will even be needed in the second half.

That would be awesome.

They are still fixing bugs in the program, though, including an error where NCAA 11 underestimates the power of revenge. 8-)

Police: Mom pulls gun on volleyball team
By Guillermo X. Garcia - Express-News
Police said an angry mother believed to be a Metzger Middle School parent pulled a gun and threatened members of a Kirby seventh-grade volleyball team that had just defeated the Metzger team Thursday night.

School police are reviewing videotapes to try to identify the woman, who witnesses said threatened to shoot several members of the visiting Kirby team, Judson ISD spokesman James Keith said.

“The Kirby team had just won, and they were in the back parking lot near the gym when the woman approached,” Keith said, noting that the students were chanting and celebrating their victory. The woman “approached them, pulled a handgun, and threatened to shoot them,” he said.

Judson school police got statements from six witnesses, including several who apparently know the woman, Keith said.

“We believe she was captured on tape, so we hope to be able to identify and arrest her,” he said.

I hope we have plenty of protection after the game....

UM rattles OSU early and often, and A.J. and Whipple get to play some scrub downs!

The difference is not Jacory vs TP, it's Coach Whipple vs the Sweater Vest. OSU's "D" is overrated, and our playmakers and Whip's schemes are not getting enough respect. TP will get his, but we will get more!

We may not be "back", but we got this!

Go 'canes!

Our number one priority during this game is to shut down the running game.....the RBs that is. If you watch last nights game between Miss St and Auburn. Auburn QB is almost similar to Pryor, even bigger but maybe a little slower and Miss St was able to slow down their offense and hold them to 17 points. Auburn QB still had over 70 yards scrambling but the RBs were totally shut down and when auburn tried to pass they went right after the QB instead of trying to spy him and let him have time to throw. We should do the same against Pryor, Bring S, CBs LBs, give him everything in the playbook. Also i saw some of it against FAMU but we need twists and stunts from the DL, not that standing straight up and bullrushing or speedrush Hurt was coaching. And don't care how many yards we give up, just dont let them get into the endzone.

Playing at home and they have a better O line and D line than us, so there it is...

We wont win the line of scrimmage battle...

To all you weather-sally's out there:

I'm not sure where I heard this today...

A quick aside: I LOVE watching the expressions of people who walk into my office on a Friday like today. (TV's been on all morning -- Mike and Mike then First Take) streaming audio all day (first Toretta, then Playmaker...now Leba-retard)...

Why? B/c NO ONE up here gets college football..at all.
(If I gotta read/ hear one more story about Tom Brady's car accident I am gonna...)

Anyway.
I dunno if it was on Qam or espn this morning, but they interviewed a writer from Columbus Dispatch about the weather. Anyone here it?

Interesting point the writer made: Pryor has NEVER-EVER played a game in the rain and they think that could be the wild card...against THEM not us.

FYI, we had at least two practices in a downpour this fall....and we'll always have B-burg last year as a reminder.

Sumthing to think about after y'all stop whining about the weather...

We ready.

I'm out 'til gametime, ladies. Y'all enjoy. Please just dont get too down if it doesnt work how you predicted...

And try not to blog EVERY play tomorrow...makes it real hard to sift through and find anything worthy.

For those of you going to the game...
we salUte U

CANES, baaby

Elliott like anything else those are up for debates, we played against FAMU they played Marshall. So lets use those, Jacory wasn't sacked, Pryor was 3 times against Marshall, OSU DL had 0 sacks against Marshall ours had 8 against FAMU....without the starting DTs. Still its up for debate and u would find it hard to find someone who would say OSU DL is better than ours. It will come down to gameplanning and execution. I've see some questionable ones last season so am still a little worried.

"The difference is not Jacory vs TP, it's Coach Whipple vs the Sweater Vest. "

It's weird how I keep reading story after story in the buildup to this game, not one of which ever mentions that OSU's offense last year was really bad (60th in total offense, 100th in passing).

Well, that's not entirely true: sometimes, the story will mention it, but only as a prelude to TP's breakout game against Oregon, which I guess is supposed to prove that OSU will be awesome on offense from now on.

Color me unconvinced: OSU under Tressel runs a boring, dumb, and ineffective offense. They will continue to do so. As long as our LBs don't suck, we will contain that offense, no prob.

Whipple, on the other hand, will probably have quite a few plays that will leave OSU's defense scratching their heads.

24 hours away

I havent been able to leave the house but for a couple of times in the last month or so

Now all of a sudden I see that the `Canes are 24 hours away from kickoff and need to walk off some off this energy

Our DL should give him fits. Also, I see Spence with an INT

Go Canes!

I'm waiting for my flight from ATL to Columbus. Lots of canes fans and luckeye fans on board. The tension is high. Anyone want to fill me in on tailgaiting places in Columbus?

The Advocate

The teams are so evenly matched and can exploit the other. It could also turn out to be lopsided one way or another depending on how crazy this game gets. My hope is the focus stays strong even though it's going to be raining tomorrow. Who would have expected our team last year, especially after manhandling GT, that we'd lose by 24 to VaTech and give up 272 yds?

1) Can't get paid and lose the money:
No driving in and kicking 22 yard field goals. Gotta score TDs, not turn the ball over in the red zone (or anywhere, period).
2) Gotta eat: The defense needs to come and earn their bread. Gotta pop 'em and hurt them. Make them afraid.
3) Drive trucks: Our O-line has got to block well in all phases.
4) No shooting ourselves in the foot:
No stupid fumbles. No untimely drops. No missed tackles on 3rd down. Please Damien Berry...hang onto the ball. Please receivers...catch the ball. Please back 7... make open field tackles!

Better OL. YES. Better DL. You smoke Wooly Blunts! No way they are better than us up front. They are stout. YES. But we are WAY deeper and with Petri, we are players now. Also we finally have EXPERIENCE.

We have a clear leader:

39.3%

Miami must stop the OSU running game

The next highest is 14% and three are tied there.

Better O-line maybe, better Dline absolutely not, I think we shock the world tomorrow.
