From Manny:

"But the Hurricanes are is good as anyone in the country at shutting down opposing passing games. UM ranks second nationally in sacks (17 total), No. 2 in pass efficiency defense and has five interceptions in their last two games."

The Canes will limit turnovers, run the ball, mix in the pass and win comfortably over FSU - Canes win by double figures!

IF your comment was not directed to me then please ignore this comment.

IF U are referring to me in your comment then let me clarify my position:

1. Do I WANT MIami to win? HELL YES!

2. Do I WANT FSU to cover the spread? HELL NO!

3. I would prefer it if Miami won 31-0 and it was 21-0 at the half.

2. Do I believe that the game will be closer than MOST think? YES.

Want I "want" and what I believe will happen are two completely different things.

I "want" to win the lottery, but I realize my chances are 1:25,000,000. What I want and "deserve" got nothing to do with it.

Bobby Bowden likes what he sees from Florida State so far this season, especially on defense. But he does not believe the team he coached for 34 seasons will beat Miami on Saturday at Sun Life Stadium.

Once again my local mullet wrap tries to pretend that there is not a huge state rivalry game tonight between FSU and your Mighty Hurricanes.

If they don't report our news will we just go away?

How will they handle not covering us when we play the hometown Bulls?

Tune in on 11/27/10.

I miss the Orange Bowl.

I miss the cruddy, stinky bathrooms. I miss the seats that rock and roll and sway to the thunder of the crowd. I miss the smoke rising to the sky as the Miami Hurricanes get set to play another game.

They’re playing in another place now that’s been beseiged over and over again by corporate meddling. It’s gone through so many name changes I’ve stopped trying to keep track.

But there is only one Orange Bowl.

One play at the end.


When Florida State and Miami get together, that always seems to be the difference.

Those five field goals that sailed wide to doom Florida State from 1991 to 2004. Frank Gore's touchdown run to give Miami a win in overtime in 2004. Miami muffing a field-goal snap to give the Seminoles a three-point win in 2005. Kirby Freeman's miracle touchdown pass to Dedrick Epps in 2007. Christian Ponder's incompletion in the end zone on the final play of last season's thriller.

"Always one of the biggest games of the season," Ponder said. "They're always close. ... You never know what's going to happen."

Bobby picks the U

Bobby Bowden likes what he sees from Florida State so far this season, especially on defense. But he does not believe the team he coached for 34 seasons will beat Miami on Saturday at Sun Life Stadium.

"I feel like Miami (has the edge) because they are playing in Miami," Bowden said Friday before a signing for his recently published book.

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/seminoles/bobby-bowden-picks-hurricanes-to-beat-florida-state-961702.html

Saturday night's showdown between Miami and Florida State has many of the elements that made it one of the best games in college football through the years: Top 25 rankings, national TV coverage, trash talking and ... plenty of good defense.

When FSU and Miami ruled the football world, their defenses served as the backbone of their success. Now, after some down years, their defenses have them back in the national spotlight

Jorge

Look for Jacory Harris to have a big game now that he’s back in Sun Life Stadium. In eight career starts at home, Harris has thrown for 18 TD passes and 10 interceptions. In 11 road starts, Harris has 19 TD passes to go with 17 interceptions. Harris is far less accurate in unfamiliar venues as well. He’s completed 56 percent of less of his passes in seven starts during his career. All seven games have been played on the road.

MH- Rivalry

The 13th-ranked Hurricanes will meet the 23rd-ranked Seminoles at 8 p.m. Saturday in the 55th installment of a series that consistently delivers thrills and, in this year's case, is back to having national significance.

For the first time since 2006, UM and FSU are nationally ranked in this matchup of old friends, former teammates and sometimes even relatives.

Reid- Keep talking

Sophomore cornerback Greg Reid is more than ready for the challenge, saying he has been bored with all of the short routes teams have used against No. 23 Florida State this season.

``I think I'm ready for the deep ball,'' Reid said earlier in the week. ``I think I'm ready for all the deep routes, me and [cornerback Xavier Rhodes]. You get kind of bored out there, and kind of tired breaking on all the short stuff, and sometimes you want the deep balls.''

86 - I'll be leaving here and heading down to the game no later than 12pm

I'm supposed to stop by Tom Jenkins BBQ when I get there, meet some peeps, grab some grub and then head to the stadium

I'll be parking in Blue Preferred, wherever the hell that is

I'll give you a call tomorrow right before I head into Tom Jenkins and see where everyone is going to be before the game

Sebastian

Im just going off the 1 game ive seen live and the others I have seen over and over on my DVR

Our J12 is playing very stiff back there and not loose. Now why that reason is I have no idea

IMO either he has lost faith in everyone but Hank and doesnt trust they will be running the route they are suppossed to be. Has put touch on it and they dropped it and has put some heat on it and yet the still drop it

I would also like to add my own touch to this by saying anychance to have LM6 on the field then he needs to be on their. The other team points to where he is at when he comes in the game

The big difference this year is we have the D and return game to bring the ACC Championship to us

DallasTXCane

Not sure what U mean by "cut the wings off" & "let him go free". This is isn't sand lot or school yard ball. U can't just run around and make plays b/c you're the better athlete and/or surrounded by better athletes. Plus, no way RS ever buys into such a philosophy. Think of how and who he's played at MLB all these years. He's a system coach not a "wing & a prayer" type.

31 - 23 CANES

Too much D & too much Hank for FSU. J12 plays well at home.

Sebastian

What scares me with a statement like that if true. Is that hes 4 games into his Jr.season and im not sure that can be changed just like that

Maybe its just time to let him go free and play the game. Im not at practices but I would like to see Hank and Byrdman start the game at WR and use TB3 in a different way

Cut the wings off of J12 and let him play free, it will pay off for the `Canes

Thank you, We were hoping to make that game but it didnt happen.

Im glad to hear it was a great game and the positive reviews coming in for Teddy.

I told my wife that we might of missed this game but we wont miss out on our next chance

WindyCane1

Had coversations with several people who know or think they know Jacory. I have come to the opinion that Jacory has been a little immature and not prepared for the next level in terms of work ethic and dedication.

I think that will change and Jacory will do a better job of avoiding INTs for the rest of the season. I think (hope) that Jacory will make better decisions and not surpass his INT totals for last year.

SJMPARMAN

I am not sold on Teddy. They brought him to the camp versus the elite high school quarterbacks. He did not shine even though Jacory was there as a mentor. I watched the 11-11, and I saw nothing special. Jacory has all the throws, all of Bridgewaters were flat. I think Teddy won in video games and not much else.

WindyCane1

MNW lost to Central 25-22

FSU commit Devonte Freeman had 29 carries for 226 yards and 2 TDs

Teddy Bridgewater was 22-40 261 yards 3 TDs(2 rushing and 1 passing)

Posted by: Sebastian57 | October 08, 2010 at 11:18 PM

Attended the game. Chatted with Joe Rose and a couple of scouts. Exciting game was decided on the last play. Saw the MNW players up close, and Brigdewater is bigger, stronger and faster than Jacory. Bridgewater has a good feel for the pocket and also has a solid arm. Bridgewater was clearly the best athlete and football player on the field. Freeman is pretty good too, but Bridgewater is an elite recruit at this stage.

SJMPARMAN

In deference to it being past the midnite hour, I am not going to say anything specific. But I really think that if people carefully read the blog, you have one guy who thinks Jacory doesn't belong as a college QB, and another guy, while rooting for the Canes, acts like he wants FSU to cover the spread. And that is sad.

The `Canes have run the ball more then they have thrown the ball

OSU just got away to fast from us

Pitt wasnt pretty running the ball but we dominated

171 yards vs Clemson was very effective

IMO its not Whipple as it is just guys dropping passes, making costly penalties. Our O is not good enough to overcome those type of things

solarcane

"you are probably right.
Whipple's ego won't let him modify the offense to take advantage of the best running back combo we have had in a long long time."
solarcane
==================================

He lacks the tight ends, he lacks the pass protection, and he has a stable of talented backs that barely get the ball.

i'm jus sayin

BEERicane

Whipple has been a terrible play caller during his tenure at UM. He does have flashes of brilliance, but if I were an RB I wouldn't even consider coming to the U with him as the OC. The RBs don't get enough carries throughout the course of the game. The guy fully commits to the pass or to the run. It's just that the running lasts for 2 series followed by exclusive passing until we either a.) have a comfortable lead then the running starts again (and it is conservative running just to kill clock) or b.) the game is over because we are mounting a comeback.

That being said, I was relatively impressed to see the utilization of ONE screen pass (WORKED!) and 2 opportune draw plays (BOTH WORKED!). I have hope that this gave us a glimpse into what is to come in that more draws and screens will be used to keep the d honest and that he isn't so stubborn that he only calls run or pass based series.

Canes win going away early in the 4th.

Interesting take on Sabado night's game between your Canes and F.S.Who.

Here's a snippet of what was said.

" Here's a note from Tyler:"

" I don't think Miami has run the bubble screen this year. Whipple is stuck in NFL mode; he thinks he needs to stay ahead of opposing DCs and pass the ball all over the place. This isn't working because 1.) Jacory Harris isn't that type of quarterback, and 2.) the offensive line is getting abused every time it becomes obvious they're passing a predominant amount. "

" I watched five Miami games from last season when making our preview, and two and parts of the third this season, and I have to say that Whipple has done an abysmal job in adjusting the offense to the current talent level. He lacks the tight ends, he lacks the pass protection, and he has a stable of talented backs that barely get the ball. Remember when Bud pointed out how crazy it was that Miami had 10 backs on scholarship? It would at least be understandable if they used them. Right now, Damien Berry gets 75% of the carries, with Lamar Miller and Mike James receiving token touches. "

" If I'm Mark Stoops, even if my defensive line can't apply pressure, I'm playing Quarters/Cover Two until Mark Whipple proves to me that he can restrain himself and run the ball consistently. After any mildly successful run, he gets this urge to run a play-action immediately after, and it's not working. "

I, also, do believe a Tiger fan said opposing D-coordinators should play a Cover-2. No.

DTX,

I wasn't really including Kyle Wright and Kirby in the list of crappy QBs
I was thinking about the latest batch of underachievers.

Yes I believe guys like Steve Walsh and Dorsey are much more dangerous when the chips are down. They were two of the best leaders of teams full of talented egomaniacs I can remember.
They not only drove their teams down the field, they knew how to get the best out of super stars at the same time.


Jacory is more exciting to watch because he's like holding a lit firecracker in your hand.

Pb,
Hey brudd,
you are probably right.
Whipple's ego won't let him modify the offense to take advantage of the best running back combo we have had in a long long time.
He thinks a skinny 19 yr old kid will make the same throws a 28 yr old man can.

He may get it some day, but he will be long gone from Miami when it dawns on him.

Wonderful people usually don't become lawyers, I guess. We have TOO MANY lawyers in Florida based on the Yellow Pages.

Since my sons are talking about opening a law firm together as brothers, I might have to change that opinion in another 15 years or so....

--- The following I made up for my 50% ---
In the Garden of Eden, Eve was approached by the first Saleman, Satan, and talked into getting something she didn't need for more than she could afford.

That's right, buying an apple for the cost of her life.

When God caught the Salesman, his punishment was that he took his legs off, gave him frightful scales, and turned him into a Lawyer.

On the plus side, the Lawyer was hired on retainer and got the execution for Adam and Eve reduced to a life sentence, and wrote up a contract that made married couples jointly liable from then on, and made Adam and Eve promise to keep feeding future Lawyers. That is what is now known as Original Sin.

Thank you for the recomendation on the book "We Own This Game". Exactly what I was looking for except it was Pop Warner as opposed to the high schools. Even so it gave me great back ground on the area.

It is pretty sad when you hear about parents & coaches acting out like that at childrens games. Gunshots going off and such.

I wonder who is Diamond Plesss' real father?

Anyways, thanks again.

Looking back at the OCs and guys we had playing O during his time, the guy never had a chance. That being said, the most glaring failure of QB U since the Dorsey Era is the position of QB.

Posted by: DallasTX Cane | October 08, 2010 at 11:23 AM

Yeah I have wondered the same thing. Although his getting sacked 9 times against FSU caused some damage......

THE MAN

Interesting story for you guys... So I got diagnosed with torn labrum in my left shoulder this morning, the same injury that Jacory "doesn't" have. I can tell you first hand that he can play through the pain this year with a cortisone shot every week. The bad thing is he can't lift any weights over his head so that could hamper his "muscular development." If he truly has this he will get surgery in the off season. He should be able to play with this injury without it affecting his throwing abilities. Just a tidbit for you guys...

Ungar

http://www.canesportmagazine.com/cane-central/2009-team-stats.html

This site says it was 17 INTs for 447 yards, not 501. But your point is still valid.

412 yards lost there, or even 358, is too many.

11 to 22 behind on first down by penalty, that's 44 extra plays to the other team gifted by either the refs or the players. 122 yards extra on 25 extra penalties in addition to that, can wear out a defense.

Then you have the 11 extra sacks, for an extra 59 yards lost.

358 + 122 + 59 = 539 extra yards against on average weaker teams. Gifting them an extra first down and an extra 40 something yards per game. Not a big deal against FAMU, but a big deal against the OSU's of the world.

OSU on those three stats?
Penalties 34 extra yards
1 extra first down by penalty.
INTs 124 extra yards
1 extra sack for 12 extra yards.

170 extra yards, and an extra set of downs in the one game we lost.

Time for the INTs and penalties to get looked at, since we are finally are ahead on sacks, 17-121 yards to 7-64 yards.

Good point Ungar. I wasn't really referring to all the guys during Cokers Last Days, just mainly to KW. And to Kirby (Bless his soul) who sucked but tried.

The guys that came DURING probation were the foundation for the greatness of the early 00s.

I hope jacory learns to read that safety.

-------------------------------
There are only 2 issues with J-12 that i have and those are his ability to read the secondary (ie,that safty) and putting some zip on the ball.

Those things are fixable and there is still enough time for him to figure those things out. But i just hope Herbstret is wrong in his analysis of J-12 just being pick prone.

GO Canes!

Reduce the razza-ma-tazz down to things Jacory and his receivers can execute and the picks go way down.

What up Solar.


The first part of this is the one thing I am sure will not happen. Whip is not going to change the downfield pass mentality with the playmakers he has.

He will chew his QB and the WR out, then call the same type of play the next series.

Whether Jacory matures enough to cut down on the picks is what remains to be seen.

Ungar

DTX, I felt more for the guys that played during probation, but I honor them for their loyalty even more. I mean, those guys knew in advance that their careers here were going to suck, but they wanted to play for the U.

The members of the Coker 2002-2005 group that came here because it was the flavor of the month, and expected titles and accolades without earning it, and then transferred when the going got tough, I don't feel for them.

But I agree that we need to get another QB U quality QB like Kelly/Kosar/Walsh/Dorsey in here.

Testaverde/Toretta/Erickson? Not so much. I want brains and strength over just a gunslinger. Yeah, they win Heisman Trophies, and maybe even a title along the way, but the others were LEADERS out there.

Just my opinion....

Wow interesting factoid

"In 2009, opponents intercepted 17 passes and returned the ball a whopping 501 yards! So the correct answer to question 1 was (e)

In 2009, we intercepted 9 passes and had 89 return yards off the interceptions. So the correct answer was (b)."

"Jacory has nothing to lose personally by throwing picks."

We should play Bosher on the O - he never misses a tackle.

DallasTX Cane

"I am going out on a limb to say that Jacory will cut down on his INTs for the rest of the season."

Playing the Dukes of the conference at home should increase ALL the good offensive numbers and decrease the bad, like INTs.

solar - I feel for the guys that had to play during the "fall" of the empire, even if they werent good. kyle might have had a decent chance if he played under RS, with the talent Randy's recruited, and been coached by Whip. Looking back at the OCs and guys we had playing O during his time, the guy never had a chance. That being said, the most glaring failure of QB U since the Dorsey Era is the position of QB.

I'll go ahead and give the answer now since there have been several posts since I asked the question.

In 2009, opponents intercepted 17 passes and returned the ball a whopping 501 yards! So the correct answer to question 1 was (e)

In 2009, we intercepted 9 passes and had 89 return yards off the interceptions. So the correct answer was (b).

Opponents had a net advantage of 412 yards of what yardage they returned interceptions for versus our return yardage.

"I am going out on a limb to say that Jacory will cut down on his INTs for the rest of the season."

Windy he certainly should be able to cut his picks down by the second half of his Junior year, anybody else would have been benched by now.
It's ridiculous really, when you think how long he has been quarterbacking.
If he had competition for his position he would be more responsible.

Let's see

He's too young.
No that didn't work.

His thumb is sore.
Nope that wasn't the problem.

His receivers run the wrong routes. Sometimes but really not as much as Shannon wants you to believe.

Whipples offense is geared for a guy that is a professional qb that plays in the NFL.
A guy that loses hundreds of thousands of dollars with each pick.

The consequence to Jacory for a pick, zero.
He isn't going to get benched.

Reduce the razza-ma-tazz down to things Jacory and his receivers can execute and the picks go way down.

Jacory has nothing to lose personally by throwing picks.
He gets a do over from his defense several times a game.

It's almost comical the way we say Jacory should be getting better by the second half of his junior year at quarterback.

He should have been getting better by the second half of his sophomore year, or the next guy should have gotten a shot... if we had the next guy.

Bottom line is we have recruited a half a dozen crappy qbs in a row with Jacory being the exception in the bunch by a mile.
He is a little better than average QB playing on a team that is getting better and better regardless of how he plays.

Bad Bart

I look forward to this game every year....Go "Canes!!!

I hope jacory learns to read that safety.
