You see how defensive people get when they are called things that certainly are not true?

SOUP

Canechic..Uh, U were the one who used the term racist towards Da Skreetz. That is way beyond "name calling". Own it.

Now, let's leave it at that. I am NOT going to spend the next six weeks talking about you. This is a Canes blog, lets talk about Canes, NOT about each other OK? OK!

Blog on...

Live chat here tonight at 8 PM.

I invited a bunch of people and so far our friend at WVUM Sports Director Chris Whittyngham has confirmed.

Chris,
Do you see improvement under Al Golden that would suggest he is the right man for the job?

Go 'canes!

TJL

everyone is out trick or treating

Sarasota 'cane

Is there any indication as to what punishment the school is considering to self-impose with regards to the NCAA investigation? Do you think UM will get USC'd? USC fan seems to think so!!

Go 'canes!

Q

What's the mood like around campus

I've written and rewritten this answer 4 times. So my answer is going to be I don't know. Hardly expert analysis, but considering the circumstances and considering these aren't his players, this team looks like it has improved from last year. That's hard to argue considering the results are basically the same but just from watching the team they seem like they compete more and are in every single game. It's still alarming that they're losing to Virginia at home and the defense regressed again, but I don't know if the team is talented enough to have lofty expectations. They're just sort of OK. Congratulations on making me very conflicted

orange 'n green in the vein

Ask Whittyngham when he gets here how much he thinks the short week to prepare lended to the latest 400+ yards of offense given up by the UM on defense? Then if he goes to that tired old saw of, "players not plays," laugh at him.

SOUP

Susan...what did U hear today from Al Golden?

SOUP

Susan...why is #72 Brandon Washington still at LT? Isn't he better suited at LG with #77 Hendersen outside at LT?

And will Clements see more time at RB as the season progresses?

canezilla

SUSAN...DO U THINK THE CANES COVER THE SPREAD OF 14 AGANIST DUKE?

SOUP

Susan and Chris...remember to hit your "refresh" button to keep up with the comments and questions!

Susan Miller Degnan

Al was good today. He said he was making changes "in every aspect of what we're doing right now.'' He said there would be changes in terms of play-calling and "personnel moves.'' But he wouldn't tell us at what positions and the players involved. He does not think the O-line is doing a good job lately (true), especially in terms of short-yardage situations. He's not satisfied with running game and with tight ends (blocking, etc.)

pbcfrcane13

For Susan or Chris....

I know its a little to early, but any reason to believe some juniors will be leaving early....

Like a Ray Ray
or Tommy Streeter

Was the misspelling of my name intentional?

Despite your passive-aggressive tone I'll answer the question. The team looked plenty prepared to play Georgia Tech on defense. Made the 9th best offense in the country incompetent. So I don't know what changes over the course of 4 days, either the coaches or players. One way or another, the defense isn't dominant.

orange 'n green in the vein

Susan, is Regis in the Golden-plated dog house still or is Ojomo really that effective inside against the run? Considering Moses basically had him staring at the pennants on the corners of the top of the stadium wall all night I'm having trouble believing Ojomo is the answer this year until he gets another 15 lbs of muscle put on him in the off-season.

canezilla

ANYBODY CAN ANSWER THIS..WITH ALL THE SPEED ON THIS TEAM HOW COME WE DONT DO MORE END AROUNDS AND SCREENS???????

Susan Miller Degnan

I expect juniors to leave early this season. Don't know about Streeter, but I wouldn't blame him if he bolted -- that is, if his season continues on this pace. There's too much uncertainty going forward next season. I definitely don't think Ray-Ray should leave early. What has he done this season? No way.

SOUP

Chris...what can U say about the fans and even the students failing to show up or stay for the whole game at Sun life? I drive three hours to go to the games from Orlando, they have no excuses in the 305.

And how about that Freshman LB Denzel Perryman! Is that Dude going to be the next Sean Spence or what?

Ray Ray Armstrong is listed as a 2nd round pick on ESPN.com. He may or may not come out, especially depending on what happens with sanctions to the program. Nobody seems to know anything about Tommy Streeter. 6'5 with that kind of speed and ability will catch on at some point.

Susan Miller Degnan

Soup, I'd like to see Brandon Washington back at guard, yes, next to big Seantrel. And the new depth chart says Mike James or Clements. Bet we see more of Clements this week.

CHRIS..WHY DO STUDENTS LEAVE AT HALFTIME????

pbcfrcane13

Any chance if UM does make it to a bowl game....would they consider taking themselves out of it self imposed bowl ban?

Or would Golden feel like he owes it to the seniors?

canezilla

2ND ROUND OF WHAT????CFL!!!

Susan Miller Degnan

Canezilla, I never assume the Canes will cover any spread. I know that sounds harsh, but I think you understand. It seems like whenever UM seems to turn the corner and break through, it regresses the next week. So maybe that means they'll cover the spread this week, right?

CHRIS..WHY DO STUDENTS LEAVE AT HALFTIME????

---

Been really disappointed in the students this season. It's embarrassing. It's a thursday night game on national television. They should run out of student seats and send people away. There's one group of students that get there first and are loud and are into it, but other than that nobody cares on campus. I always ask people if they're going to the game and they'd rather sleep in after a night in the grove. It pisses me off.

Another theory is that they're a lot of international students at UM, particular from Japan and China, not exactly football hotbeds. Also, very few kids from Florida and even fewer from Miami go to UM. A lot of northeastern imports, so students don't have long histories of being a UM fan, so they could care less about a team that isn't great. These are all excuses. It's inexcusable

pbcfrcane13

What line would you guys like to see

I would love to see

LT: Feliciono
RG: Bwash
C:Horn
LG:Gunn
LT: Hendeson

with Linder as the man guard back up

SO TRUE SUSAN

SOUP

Chris/Susan...how about that new QB in Denver, what's his name, Tim Tebow? OK, just kidding! Christian Ponder looks much better in Minnesota anyway. LOL

Now another off topic:

Will the Miami Dolphins "Suck 4 Luck" campaign be successful and when not if Sporano gets fired who do you want or see for the next Dolphins Head Coach?

They wait for the NCAA to hand down they're penalties. I doubt they care at all about what's going on with the sanctions when trying to fix a 4-4 team

Susan Miller Degnan

Orange 'n Green, I know Golden is very disappointed with the defensive line so far. There's no pressure by them, which really screws up the rest of the defense. Chickillo and Vernon are very talented, but the tackles have struggled obviously. I don't think Micanor Regis has endeared himself to the coach.

Chris, thanks for answering my question and calm down there;

"I invited a bunch of people and so far our friend at WVUM Sports Director Chris Whittyngham has confirmed.

That's where I got the spelling, so blame SOUP, no passive aggressiveness directed toward you there. Unless you drop the, "players not plays," reply of course. ;)

SOUP THIS IS A CANES BLOG NOT DOLPHINS...BLOG ON.BAHAHAHAHAH

SOUP

Chris/Susan...if U had to pick two players on offense and two on defense that have been MVPs this year so far, who would they be?

Whats the word with Ryan Williams....some people seem to think he will beat out Morris next year.....and I am one of them

Tesus just isn't good. That simple. More like terrible

And with the Dolphins, the only way the coach matters is if they get Luck. No team in 2011 wins a super bowl without a franchise quarterback. Then you can hair split over the offensive line, 2nd receiver, and the coach. It's why the dolphins have been a disaster

Rat Bastidd

It would be nice if one of our great players stayed and played his senior season. We really need Streeter to stay for the teams sake. Sure he'll make a lot of money in the league but with the new CBA he wont make HUGE money. Our new QB whoever that may be will need him. STAY!!!

Offense it's between Harris, Streeter, and Miller. Would rather not pick between them

Defense it's been Spence and Jojo Nicolas

Great answer!

orange 'n green in the vein

Susan, you were on here before the season and I asked you what early season game would be most indicative of what to expect from Golden's first year, you answered VT.

Wow, that was spot on. Anybody who says you don't know the game doesn't have any cred with me after that one now.

Jethro Franklin made a name for himself with Wild Bunch II when USC was tearing up a really shallow talent pool in the Pac-10, then he went to Temple in a head-scratching move, if Petri gets his line to throw Jacory off his game and helps Duke pull the upset on homecoming while UM's has done bupkis along the front four this year, do you see a major assistant cleaning, ala Shannon's first off-season where he switched up the defensive brain trusts, when 2011 is over or is Golden going to sink or swim with the guys he won 9 games in a row two years ago?
