Man if RS is let go anytime soon want Gruden as our coach. I think he would make a great college coach.

Passing Yards - 45th (241.0)
Rushing Yards - 80th (137.5)
Points For - 37th (34.5)

Can't afford him. Plus I'm not sure he wants a college gig?

Anyway, Shannon is going to be here a long time. He will get better, the team will get better, the results will be better.

Hang in there Canes fan!

pbcfrcane13

Dont get me wrong I don't want him to go. I'm the few that think he has done a good job and Saturday was on the players not RS

CGNC

It seems like a great source of info BUT it is disturbing that he is dong a Q&A at midnight. AND there was a tweet from DVD's account during the game - I am assuming that was a friend or family member that sent it as it expressed displeasure at some of the fans who I guess were expressing displeasure with DVD.

solarcane

we should be ist in defense and 1 or 2 offense by the 4th week imo

Thanks for the correction. First in sacks and second in defense in the ACC.

National rankings not so good

solarcane

players don't need to be tweeting during the season.

This isn't a knock on 411 at all.
He knows he and I are tight for a long time here
Tweeting is here to stay for sure. til the next big thing.

But for me personally I don't need to know instantly what everyone is doing.
I guess I just don't care?
I know I'm in the minority, on this but I just figure I will know when I need to know.

solarcane

windy, no sweat brudda,

I was gald to see you took time to post some stats.

We only need to lead the ACC, the national rankings will be determined by how different conferences play defense.

Remember there are teams like Houston, UTEP that can score 60 points a game and play no defense.

We lead in the ACC we will have the opportunity to play someone out of conference again at the end of the season and we will know how far we have come.

SOUP

Ravens beat the STINKIN' J-E-T-S!!!

WindyCane1

Ray - best LB in the history of the NFL - delivers the hit! Jets loose!

solarcane

windy I agree a hundred percent.

Best linebacker ever, probably the best defensive player of all time by his peers too when he hangs em up

SOUP

321...I'm gonna be in your area tomorrow. If U can do lunch at 1 PM in NW Cocoa email me at: canespace86@aol.com.

Justin M...your T-shirt was returned in the mail for "insufficient address". Please email me at: canespace86@aol.com.

That Twitter stuff IS a distraction.

There was a really good linebacker named Brian Bosworth that let his appearance and celebrity become more important than his play.

By the time he realized it, his celebrity status was that he was a clown.

Posted by: solarcane | September 13, 2010 at 09:14 PM

I like your comment solar...

By the way to answer your question Storm was in full pads against OSU. Also late in the game Berry seemed hurt...

Montreal-Cane

SOUP here is a suggestion for the blog...After every games bloggers could rate
the starters on offense and on defense.

solarcane

monte thanks,
I have to admit there were a couple moments here and there that I wasn't watching the game, I had that burning in the pit of my stomach.

I'm hoping Storm hangs in with us.
He has a shot at being the starting back on a top 5 team in a year or two if he can be patient.

elliott

Got this from Eye on the U, Manny's blog
I agree with it 100%


I'm tired of looking at the same crap from last year. RS must go. Lack of game preparation, no matchup advantages, poor tackling, and no game adjustments. Hey Randy, how about some tackling drills this week? How about abandoning that pro-style two receiver set? How about 3, 4, or maybe 5 receiver sets getting our receivers in man-to-man situations where they can make plays? How about some bubble screens, slants, or half back passes? Again, let's challenge every defender and see if there 3rd best corner or linebacker can run with Lamar Miller. Open up the playbook and stop making Harris throw into double and triple coverage (Hankerson had 3 men defending him on that first int) then blame him later.

elliott

If we do this we win every game from here on out.....

canesteeler

Damn I got my Pitt tickets through UM and I am in section 505, I would have been better off going through the Pitt ticket office!

elliott

We need to abandoned that Pro style for the rest of the year (except running plays of course.. Switch up 5 wr sets with Streeter, Miller, Benjamin, Hankerson and Latwan Anderson. Go for the mismatches not sold on Whipple and I am starting to real doubt him as an offensive coordinator.

DZ8

Almost makes me want to get a twitter phone or twitter computer or however you tweet...

Human nature to always compare to the best. If I could, I would compare this years team to the last Canes team to win a bowl game, 2006, but what fun would that be?

solarcane

canesteeler.
Stick with the 505
you know UM would recognize your name and put you out in the parking lot. lol!

Visiting team always get terrible tickets. Stick with what U got and enjoy the game when the Canes win!

solarcane

Any of you guys with a PS3, going to get the Move bundle?

I went with the PS3 after two Xbox RRoD episodes
I must say the PS3 is less noisy, and is smooth as can be for a couple months in.

I use the PS3 exclusively to roam around in Red Dead Redemption, while slaughtering anything that moves.

I have a Wii but it is so inaccurate as far as motion goes nobody uses it anymore.

I'm thinking of getting the Move stuff for company, and the kids to mess with.
What do the gaming experts on here think?

"How about abandoning that pro-style two receiver set? How about 3, 4, or maybe 5 receiver sets getting our receivers in man-to-man situations where they can make plays? How about some bubble screens, slants, or half back passes?"

Right now, I am not sure I want to see this team rely on Jacory. I want to see them run the ball. I really think the rely on Jacory to win the game experiment needs to end. Establish the run, even if this means you play the freshmen if they are better run blockers, and then carefully let Jacory throw. But do not rely on Jacory at this point, he hasn't earned it.

There are 5 talented runners and none of them has the propensity to turn the ball over like Jacory. Keep feeding them. We have a very good defense. Let us stop losing games because we are relying on one guy.

Exactly what I've been saying/thinking

SJMPARMAN

I posted this elsehwere but it really is a continuation of my earlier thought first posted here.

I think the Jacory experiment is over. He has been treated like the second resurrection of Ken Dorsey but the results are not the same. It is time to move this offense from being on his shoulders to a more balanced one.

Damien Berry, Mike James, Lamarr Miller, Storm Johnson, and Eduardo Clements are all great backs. Instead of relying on Jacory and his propensity to make mistakes, let us feed these guys over and over again, and play defense if the offense can't pick up ten yards in three tries. This defense was very good, even after Jacory put them in tough spots time and time again. Imagine if they had a ball control offense to work with.

The Jacory experiment has failed. It is time to find the best run blockers on the team, and I don't care if they are freshman or not, and let them open holes for the talented running backs. Most of these running backs were more highly rated at their positions than Jacory out of high school. In appropriate spots, let Jacory throw, but do not rely on him to be the offense.

The Dolphins made the same mistake with Marino. Yes, he could dazzle in individual games. Clayton and Duper were wonderful receivers. They never won a championship because it is too much, in a team game, to ask one guy to carry the load. Ditto Fouts, Tarkenton et al. It wasn't until Jimmy convinced Aikman not to make mistakes that the Cowboys won a Super Bowl post Landry.

College is no different. Haven't we seen, year after year, that gun slingers can give their teams good records, but not win it all? McCoy last year, Bradford the year before, and you can go down the line. Teams win as a team and do not rely on the quarterback only to win games.

This chick wears this kind of stuff while interviewing professional athletes - IN THEIR LOCKER ROOM ... and she wonders why she got some cat calls from some of the players?

GTFO of here with her or anyone being surprised that it happened with the Jets -or- any team for that matter. I don't think female reporters should be allowed in the locker room anyway ... how many male reporters are allowed into a female volleyball locker room after a game to interview them, while they just got out of the shower or are getting ready to shower?

No one should ever be surprised by what they see or hear when they subject themselves to going into a locker room of a team. That's their territory - not the reporters or the media

Am I saying that Ines Sainz should wear a big baggy nun outfit? No. But you can still wear clothes that are professional looking and not look like you're some star f***er groupie that tries to land athletes for their cash


Unreal that this is even a story

Ken is for me? Alright .. seems kinda creepy b/c I don't know the cat, but if he's for me, that's cool

"I really hope Coach Whipple is not going anywhere for a while .. because he is, in my opinion, the best offensive coordinator in college football"

- Ken Dorsey

9/10/10

Montreal-Cane

Ken Dorsey is the 3rd string QB for Toronto in the CFL. He is helping a lot with coaching. He said that he would love to coach at any level eventually with the Canes...I think his career as a player is almost over. I think he could help the offensive coaching staff and our QBs
at the U starting as a graduate assistant in the near future...

On this we agree. Still some will complain that if the Canes go to the running game that "this is too conservative an offense".

A balanced attack is good, but you can't afford to constantly fall behind early.

SinisterCane

Go CANES

TJL

Lamar Miller in the wildcat

solarcane


If IcePick gets his head together the next four games we will be a lot more tolerant.

Watching Phillip Rivers get pizzed at himself and his receivers, reminded me how his fire carried NC State and Chuck Amato for 51 straight games.

Question
Has anybody ever seen J4 go over to whipple on the sideline to breakdown a bad or good play??

Back from 614 and just trying to recover from a big weekend and an exhausting game...
Hope everyone takes this loss to the #2 team in stride, lots of football left to be played!
Go Canes!

Thanks. Always happy to share the 411!!

411

When I was a teenager I finally got a phone in my room and eventually got my own phone line... I was talking to friends all night long.

These kids have twitter. It's part of their culture.

Sebastian

Finally the dr. has cleared me to leave the house as much as I want

Meaning I will be at the Pitt game which equals a `Cane victory

JMO but when the `Canes are in a 2 WR set it needs to be Hank and the Byrdman

Shannon and Whipple just have to remind J12 that this year not everything is on him to win the games. He has the cast around him that can take that load off of him

Just play within yourself and the `Canes will prevail every single time

Kids tweet...football players tweet...new world...new age....not saying I love it but things have changed.

-----------------------------------
411, no one realistically expected the Canes to go undefeated. We knew they were going to loose at least one game and they did.

In a way i am glad the loss came to the #2 ranked team because now the Canes know they still have some work to do, got humbled and now will be more focused the rest of the year.

A loss to a mediocre Pitt team, an ACC team, or a FAMU or South Florida team would have been more devastating.

Like i posted previously, the o-line played better than expect considering their opponent and their lack of experience. If they stay healthy, come mid season, JH will have all day to throw and those RBs will have huge holes to run through.

I am very excited about the rest of the season.

11-1, Go Canes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
