A search on "swiss cheese holes" revealed that gassy bacteria are behind all that holey cheese.

In order to make cheese, you need the help of bacteria. Starter cultures containing bacteria are added to milk, where they create lactic acid, essential for producing cheese. Various types of bacteria can be used to make cheese, and some cheeses require several different bacteria to give them a particular flavor.

Propionibacter shermani is one of the three types of bacteria used to make Swiss cheese, and it's responsible for the cheese's distinctive holes. Once P. shermani is added to the cheese mixture and warmed, bubbles of carbon dioxide form. These bubbles become holes in the final product. Cheesemakers can control the size of the holes by changing the acidity, temperature, and curing time of the mixture. Incidentally, those holes are technically called "eyes," and the proper Swiss name for the cheese is Emmentaler (also spelled Emmental or Emmenthaler).

Swiss cheese has been in the news recently because the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) created new guidelines that regulate the hole size of domestically produced Swiss cheese. The USDA reduced the standard size of the holes by half because new cheese-slicing machinery got caught on larger holes. The Swiss weren't pleased by the revised guidelines and insist that Emmentaler must have large holes. Considering how iconic those eyes are, we think they have a good point.

The Swiss Cheese Paradox:

1 - Swiss cheese has holes.
2 - More Swiss cheese, more holes.
3 - The more holes there are, less cheese.
4 - Therefore, more cheese is less cheese.

Last time I checked, the defense gave up 18 points...if they didn't have to play against our offense (14 for the other guys) while they weren't even on the field...we win.

I could care less about how many yards we gave up...Scoring Defense is the only stat that matters...

SOUP

Canechic...I was just teasing. U were right about the MD game, Miami lost. I am thinking 8-4 now instead of 9-3?

And anyway, a little gloating never hurt anyone, right?

Gloat on sista!

Texascane

...and that is why they sell Swiss cheese by weight...not volume...

SlingBlade

i wasnt happy with the soft coverage of our corners...that bubble screen will get you minimum 7yds each time...there was a good adjustment to it middle of the 2nd qtr...

having ojomo, forston, spence, and benjamin back for the osu game will be huje...

i thought morris did a really good job protecting the ball and making good decisions, minus the delay of game penalties and the int...

no excuses though...we had the opportunity to win and we gave them the ball...

i have to give props to LM6 and his football IQ...i was pissed initially that he didnt slam that guy that got the int...but it was the right decision to let him score, to give our offense the opportunity to get the ball back...

i just hope this loss does not stop all the fans from coming out to the OSU game...we need to show up and support our team

I must say it was very nice to see the use of the fullback position!!!!! :)

SOUP-
OHIO-
which injured players will we be getting back for the OSU game...

canechic

LOL!!!

Texascane

Maybe we should play Telemaque on offense and he just stays back and plays free safety on every play...

VA Cane

There IT is right there.

Aerosmith: "It's that same old story, same old song and dance, my friend..."

O and D line play was not up to par, expected it on D...but the O line was not consistent. Both have to be.

Song was penalties, Dance was the TOs 2 fumble and a pick was 17 points...that hurts ....again......JMO

SOUP

Sling: TE Ayles, DL Porter, DL Robinson and maybe AJ II?

canechic

Nick's observation....hit the damn QB, what are you waiting for....he slows up and stays in bounds and you don't even hit him?? Make him think twice about running again?? I observed too much letting up on defense and stopping...this is not high school any more guys.

But I am very happy with Special Teams.

Maybe I should forward it to Coach Golden?

SlingBlade

AJ II?
aldarius johnson? isnt he suspended indefinitely

solarcane

Just got back from the building supply
All Georgia, GT,Clemson fans work there.
First let me say most of them said they think Miami could beat them with a full squad.
Their combined thoughts.

You guys did really well without your best defensive players, you still don't have a real leader at Qb.
You were fortunate Maryland tried to score from the redzone and not on bombs from your 40 or you would have lost by 3 more tds.

pbcfrcane13

Miller needs to be touching the ball close to 25 times a game. I like James but he is no Miller and they need to stop splitting the carries.

eYeofthestorm

Thank God we weren't playing Oaklahoma again or we might have given up 70 pts. Talent, yes we have more than Mary, but at least they made us work to get the ball down the field, we on the other hand, looked like a Pop Warner team on defense. Swiss Cheese is putting it mildly, how about a sieve, that looked like a breach in a dam. Yes we were under manned on the defensive front and when you get no pressure on the Qb, who can't throw for 300 yds. The offense from the 2 min. mark left in the 2ND Qt, looked lost and confused and even though we did score, the stupid penalties, were just inexcusable. Maryland has an average team at best and we made them look like a top 5 team. We never threw on first down, to change things up and what amazes me is that we never hit a receiver in stride, so he can run after the catch. We make the passing game look like a science project.
On the bright side, the special teams looked good, we didn't have any drops, and the tackling was pretty good, Lamar Miller looked good as long as they didn't run the same play over and over. and I don't care how good your offensive line is, when they jam the box with 7 or 8 guys it's going to be tough to run. The play calling to me got to be pretty predictable and we still can't cover a T.E. Would those those guys we lost have made a difference, maybe against the run but our corners suk with a capital "T". An average team like Maryland punted one time, one flipping time the whole night, this could end up being a nightmare season. I knew eventually the D.Tackle position was going to kill us because we recruit that position like it doesn't exist anymore and once again in case you haven't checked we only have one recruit at that position right now and that's if he doesn't back out.

SlingBlade

id say that analysis is spot on...

SlingBlade

eyeofthestorm

we were without 3 DT's in this game..we have 7 on the team and only one is a senior...2 of the ones that played were freshmen and the other is a transfer...so that means 3 out of the 4 that played last night played in their first game...

we will be alot better next week with porter robinson and forston back at the DT position...

Dadesfynest83

We lost cuz Jarett Lee wasn't playing...right Matt ? LMAO...

Brevardcane

Did finnie play?

eYeofthestorm

Slingblade,
You're right we have 7 d.t's and we had to play freshman last night, 2 of which, Pierre and Grimble were playing D.E. in high school last year, so really only Forston, Regis, Robinson, Porter and Smith have the size to play the position and are true D. Tackles, Pierre and Grimble maybe weigh 275 and don't have the strength at this point in their career to play the positon with any consistancy. We have to recruit that position way better than we have the last several years and beside Forston those other 4 are average at best. Smith would be better in a 3 - 4 defense at nose tackle, since he's like 345.

Lee

My first post, long time reader, but it's a fresh season so why not start.

Regardless of the suspensions, it was just more of the past 5 years or so. Penalties, turnovers, confusion, missed assignements, soft corners and poor pass coverage on the tight ends. These we seem to excell at.

Anyone else of merit would have put up 50+ last night, most would have been over 30+ easily. Unless Maryland finishes in the top 25 this year we were lucky the game was as close as it was.

My guess, unless it turns around big time for OSU it's a 6-6 year at best.

Texascane

#3 Oregon had four turnovers and 12 penalties against LSU...guess they should just give up the season as well...

canechic

Texas sadly lots of bloggers were saying that about Oregon on Sunday too. Oh and TCU too.

Both still have good teams, filling valuable positions and valuable leadership.

I think the canes can rebound but I know this whole mental rebuilding will take time.

Let's face it, it is very difficult to change bad habits. Bad habits have infested this team for years and it will take some time to kill this bad bad mental bug. But it does look better, so they just need to keep progressing.

The worst part of all this is its a conf. game! Im over this labor day crap! If we do play labor day make it an out of conferance game!!! AH this hurts so much more that it counst against us in the ACC

CGNC

Coach sure looked different stammering and at a loss for words immediately after them game, didn't he?

Posted by: solarcane | September 06, 2011 at 08:47 AM

I noticed that too Solar, he looked like he had just pulled an allnighter! I think with the media hype of the NCAA and losing players and being on national TV on Labor Day - by the end of the game he was toast.

TLuv

CGNC-I'm sure standing in a monsoon wearing a suit and tie didn't help either

CGNC

VA, all I am saying is that this is not 2001 Miami team where the backups were maybe as good as the starters. Maryland considers themselves lucky that they got us first, with all the suspended players out.

In addition, we played a spread offense that is difficult to defend even with all of your experienced players. You must be able to tackle in space and get a lot of players to the ball. I felt the defense played extremely well when the field was shortened (red zone) and Maryland had to play smash mouth...they could not get it done. We would have beaten Friedgen's team from last year.

Now you know why I was scared to death that Leach would get the Maryland job...his offense would have put up 40 last night.

All in all...the only disappointment that I had was that we did not use the tight ends and the backs more out of the backfield. That may be a function of Morris more than Fisch...

Posted by: Texascane | September 06, 2011 at 10:05 AM

THIS THIS THIS!!!!!

CGNC

TLuv - yeah, I think he was just shellshocked from everything. Saying you are ready for a big stage and then actually being on it are two different things. Now he has been on it, he will be ok. Kind of like when I started horseshowing, Regionals used to rock me, I treated it differently and didn't do as well. The only way to get through that is to continue to do it and deal with it.

Barring some biological warfare, we will never see this mish-mosh of a defense again. If the team continues to improve, that's what I want to see...the rest will follow.

Six, somehow I deleted your email addy: send me an email at mw32779@windstream.net

pbcfrcane13

Look all the players ou change everything...add TB to he Off changes the way the dcord needs to play his defense. I has to make sure to have somebody over the top which takes a guy out of the box which helps the running game. Also having the lack of depth on the D side I'm sure Jedd was told to make sure he tries to keep the ball away from the MD O and not take to many chances.

Morris had to passes that change the game....the one to I think it was Hurns right on a post over the middle and over throw him then the one to Miller had him down the sideline, but he had to get rid of it ball early because of the pressure. So look we lost and yes the players being out did change the game is what it is.

For the people saying that it shouldn't matter really....You have DB one who didnt play due to injury last year and was recruited by WF and then Mcgee who couldnt beat out DVD or Hill.....thats not good lol. the at one point did we have Paul...Perryman playing LB at the sametime with Chick on the DLine....lol never good when you have 3fr playing at the sametime. AH just venting sorry if this doesnt make sense just getting it all out! lol

Ohio_Cane

I will say, a bright spot in my eyes yesterday is that there is way more passion, energy, and fight in this team than last yr. Last yr's team would've tanked by half. This team fought all the way to the end.

Sept 17th will be the showcase of whether the missing starters last night hurt or not.

They're saying the suspended players not being there hurt the team, but are giving a little credit to Maryland for playing hard. They're actually talking more about their uniforms than the game lol

pbcfrcane13

Btw I like the way Morris handled the post game interview If he can grow into making some smarted plays I think this kid can be a great leader you can see it starting to come out of him.

Longtimecane

a bright spot last night was the special teams. Good kickoff coverage kept them starting at the 20 yard line most of the night.

Our returns avg'd closer to the 35. A plus 15yds there.

Downside, we had alot of returns.......

dg

To me, we roll with Morris-he is the future(and maybe the present). J12 has had plenty of opportunities. I just don't know what to say about Byrd. I really expected him to demand the ball. Even on the sideline he was just there. Allen Hurns wants it real bad--this kid will be special barring injury.
