VA - We only had a little to drink (wink wink)...

3G Cane

Feliciano had a solid game at RT last night, he did a good job on running plays driving his man off the line. I thought the OL overall had a good night.

Hurns has put it all together and is a hell of a downfield blocker.

Perryman is going to be a playmaker. Our D gets really tough in the redzone which is what matters most, holding teams to 3 instead of 7 is crucial and will win you games.

Silly penalties that take points off the board prior to halftime must be eliminated and obviously the turnovers need to be stopped. Jacory needs to make quicker reads and decisions, the WR's were open on those plays but he took to long to throw it.

Nice win, good times, cant wait to do it all again next week!

is CANESPACE powerful enough to convince John Swofford to get both Notre Lame and FU into the ACC?

DONE.

VA Cane...there were some adult beverages consumed before, during and after the game, I will not dispute that.

There were also some really good moments and memories that were made this weekend.

GOLDEN MOMENTS!

Awesome win. Defense should only get better

Btw, I just found out I passed my test and am officially a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS). Great weekend.

FROM MANNY

UM coach Al Golden told us Jacory Harris "would show us all Saturday night." He sure did. Harris showed us all he's still the same interception prone, soft tossing, queasy-stomach producing quarterback we've seen since the Heisman talk died down two games into the 2009 season...

Thanks Windy. I was surprised to see Clive listed below Chase.

SlingBlade

golden just said on joe rose that seantrel will be back in a couple of weeks...

VA Cane

Clive made a nice move on the TD.....this game, with a few less mistakes, easily could have been at least 38-6...Byrd should have been a TD, as well as Clives.....man it would have been a beatdown for sure...

Still I am glad we won...the kids did a pretty good job, hope J12 will pick it up and be positive

Hurri

Anybody (Solar) got the #'s on what the Brown Bros. have done thus far at KSU....?

2002nemo

Good win! We needed it. Any feedback from recruits?

On another topic, how long is UM's NFL touchdown streak now?

Danke!

canechic

Not only is defense dead in College Football but I think it is non-existent in the NFL. Numbers being put up by QB's is obscene!

SinisterCane

Golden may want to rethink wearing that hot a$$ long sleeve/tie combo, he was melting on the sidelines.

VA Cane

Arthur Brown

2 games, 6 solos, 13 assists, 2.5 tackles for loss of -13 yards, .5 sack for -2 yards.

Bryce Brown

1 game, 3 carries, 17 yards, 1 carry for loss, net gain 16 yards, long of 12, 16 ypg.

Arthur not bad huh....BB the greatest thing since sliced bread....pretty mild. Just for being a jerk, with an agent and thinking he was so good, he has not turned out to be much has he?

Can anybody say Lamar Miller?

solarcane

CBS sports B Feldmen

In Miami, the Canes drilled No. 17 Ohio State 24-6 as UM's running game really took it to the Buckeyes early and often. Lamar Miller, UM's super-fast tailback, almost equaled Miami's rushing yardage total from their loss to OSU last year (120) in Columbus in the first quarter (115) alone. Miller is rapidly emerging as one of the nation's top players, the kind of talent the Canes haven't had in the past few years. There haven't been a lot of difference-makers on offense for this program lately, and Miller is definitely one. He also ran behind a big, athletic O-line that responded to being challenged by line coach Art Kehoe.

Miami ended up doubling last year's rushing total against the Buckeyes, gaining 240 yards with a robust 5.7-yard per carry average. Still, this was not a resounding performance for Jacory Harris. He threw two INTs and another pass that could've been a pick-six. In a word, it was shaky. Again. He's going to have to be sharper if the Canes plan on surviving an ACC road schedule that includes trips to FSU, Virginia Tech and UNC.

As for the Buckeyes, Luke Fickell's offense was far too one-dimensional. OSU QBs actually had more passing attempts (15) than passing yards (13) through three quarters. I suspect if Fickell knew he was going to be the coach beyond 2011, he'd be leaning on freshman QB Braxton Miller more, but after the Miami game, he might give the kid the keys right now as OSU gets ready for the Big Ten schedule.

The downside for the ACC, Maryland couldn't overcome a big hole against West Virginia, where Geno Smith upstaged Danny O'Brien. On top of that, their two future ACC members, Pitt and Syracuse both lost too.

Solar recently appointed me understudy/trainee for college football and Lego music photography.....I try my best, but its hard to keep up with the true Jedi Master!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's call the BROWN brothers at Kansas State and ask them why they didn't get suspended by the NCAA...

VaCane

thanks!

I am working on two Small Change projects and one mini, and I mean mini movie now.

You know Jimi's stuff will be included

appreciate you folks that take time to watch especially during The Golden Era.

solarcane

Listening to the Golden interview it's quite clear Jacory is going to start every game unless he is injured.
Golden feels Jacory makes all the right decisions putting long drives together.

Fisch is molding the offense around a lame duck passer and thoroughbred runner so I'm getting more confident we see less picks.
Jacory doesn't look as scared as he looks in confident of his long throws.

We will have to run to the redzone then let Jacory do some play action when the other teams are stacked against Lamar, James.

It was a good week for the U.
Improved academic ranking (#38)
A much needed win over (#17) OSU.
No new scandal.

Nevertheless, let's not forget . . .
Five other ACC schools (including NC and GT) are higher than the U in the academic rankings. (Although we're still number one in Florida - well ahead of FSU, UF, and USF).
Five other ACC schools (including NC and GT) are higher than the U in the football rankings. (And we're still only four in Florida - well behind FSU, UF, and USF).
And a dark cloud (impending NCAA sanctions) looms large over the Coral Gables campus.

So, let's revel in the rise - both academically and athletically.
But keep things in perspective. We've got a long way to go - both academically and athletically. Moreover, we're bound to receive probation from the NCAA, sooner or later.

"And when you're burned . . . you've got nothing!"

I can't even imagine how much that win will help is in recruiting. There was some real good players on campus and at the game this weekend. Great stuff!

Head Coach Al Golden earned his first victory with the Miami Hurricanes as they convincingly beat the Ohio State Buckeyes 24-6 last night at Sun Life Stadium.

Next up, Coach Golden and the Canes face the visiting Kansas State Wildcats this Saturday, September 24 at 3:30PM. Great seats are still available and start as low as only $19. Better yet, bring 20 or more people and take advantage of our group rates and save as much as 35% off regularly priced individual game tickets.

Tickets for all remaining home games are available online at HurricaneSports.com and Ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 1-800-GO-CANES (800-462-2637). Tickets may also be purchased in person at any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Hecht Athletic Center on the Coral Gables campus between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM Monday – Friday

Didn't I say we would go from 45th to about 30th when we beat Ohio State
lucky we played them when people thought they were actually #17.

We beat another 3-0 shyty team in KS we will be around #23 next round

movin on up!

North Carolina at Georgia Tech, (12 p.m. ET, ESPN)

SOUP

Solar...Clemson and GT are looking like pretty scary teams right about now.

Could FSU lose 2 in a row?

I'm not looking forward to UM facing GT in a few weeks at Sun Life. I think that could ba tough game.

Texascane

I wonder if Coach Larranaga is pushing to change the bonus clauses in his contract to "Finish fifth or better in the ACC..."

Texascane

Georgia Tech vs Kansas was 24-17 at half time...finished 66-24.

solarcane

soup,
I was thinking the same thing about GT they are steam rolling.
How much has Coach D faced the option?
Our d guys should be at the top of their game by then though.
GT is a good game to get our O line dinged up.


Clemson is playing lights out for sure, if their coaches don't screw them up they could beat FSU.

solarcane

soup,
did you get a chance to see the fan with the Canespace tee shirt on his head during the Manny tunnel walk interview?

awzum

SOUP

Solar...YES! that is Canezilla from the blog. He goes way back to the very beginning of Canespace and we have met at several games at home and on the road. I'll dig up some old pics from last year at Sun Life and at the UCF game two years ago.
