see ball, get ball

The Brown Recluse

NC State game "should" be a win for the Canes. As I read over the blog, I see how everyone is ignoring the twin 800lb gorillas in the room. Problems with the secondary and special teams.

The GT QB Washington toasted Rodgers or whatever DB it was at least twice...and he would have had two more long completions if he had not overthrown the receiver. I hope No' D is fixing that, as well as coming up with some exotic blitz packages. Go back and watch the game again and you'll see that it was actually passing that got GT back in the game.

NC State knows that the Canes front four is suspect, and even though Glennon is big and slow...don't be surprised to see some QB draw plays to keep the chains moving. Fisch needs to run more RB screens to James and Duke, and forget about the WR bubble screens.

My Canes...your Canes will not be victorious if No'D runs that pathetic "prevent" style defense on Saturday. Grind it out with James and Duke to keep Glennon off of the field, and eliminate our own turnovers while creating some on NC State should give the Canes a win. Forget the GT win guys, that was last week. That was a game that the Canes should have won 47-14!!!

If Miami pressures glennon he will look soooo normal. But if let him have time.... BC alllll over again

Why are we recruiting 5 te's ? We dont even throw to them !!!!

Ohio_Cane

The Dude, I missed the earlier post but just went back and looked. Let me see:

-----------------------------------------
We really dont have but a few more spots left.

1 QB Olsen
2 RB Collins
3 RB Lewis III
4 FB/TE Johnson
5 TE Standish
6 OL Kerr
7 OL Gall
8 OL Kirkland?
9 WR Jean-Louis
10 WR Cunningham?
11 NT Bryant
12 DT (Bostwick?)
13 LB (Thomas?)
14 LB (Grace or Ngakoue?)
15 DE (I dont know)
16 CB Burns
17 DB Carter
-----------------------------------------

Looks about right, Dude.

A couple notes:

- Kirkland: loves Canes, but FSWho lurks.

- Cunningham: I have no idea on, except Bama, ND, OK St and Stanford are in the mix.

- Bostwick: Yes, we get him, IMO.

- Thomas: Boy I hope so, but this will probably be a :wait-and-see till signing day" type deal

- Grace: Yes, all Cane, IMO.

- Yannick Ngakoue: Toss up. Just decommited from Maryland and is high on Canes, but no idea with him. We'd be lucky to have him tho.

BTW anybody thins Strong will be taken away from Lville? I know if Im a top notch program I would go after him.....maybe a place like Tennesee hell if I was GT I would get rid of Johnson and do everyting to get Strong...your never going to win playing that offense the ACC has caught on.

Anywhere butch goes in college means trouble for us lol. Considering I'm sure he'll be still recruiting heavily in our backyard no matter where he goes. Even though golden is putting a fence up butch will be leaning on it applying pressure

Butch finally retruning home, good for him, bad for Bama, hopefully no difference for us.

I'm hoping to see a BALANCED attack against NCST on Saturday:
3 running TDs, 3 passing TDs, and one each from the defense and special teams.

Anybody have a problem with that?

Per Barry Jackon of the Miami Herald (Evidence of Culture change in Coral Gables):

### How much has UM’s conditioning improved (which was key in the Georgia Tech win)? In August 2011, 40 players failed Golden’s conditioning test. None did this year.

Laquinton. The best part of that was the comments from the fans..all they wanted to talk about was how cool the picture they used is. I think they are having issues with injuries are RB. So lets pressure the QB and drop 6 in coverage..have to make this qb beat us dont let us beat ourselves! GO CANES!!!

I seen em play Tennessee and was not impressed. Glennon didn't impress me either, he took a sack while out of the pocket when he had time to just throw it away. Their best db got beat for 2 td's

LaQuinton

Glennons brother had the chance to compete with tyrod Taylor and went...

and np guys.

Jiggafras

Posted by: SJMPARMAN | September 26, 2012 at 12:39 AM

They have only played one true road game v Uconn, they won 10-7. They played UT in Atlanta and look horrible. Glennon had 4 picks in that game. Their other 2 games were at home v South Alabama and The Citadel. Most of their stats are average considering the opponents they have played imo. One thing stood out, they are 113th in sacks allowed nationally, 11th in the ACC having given up 14 sacks. we have given up 6 in comparison and we played 3 true road games.

SJMPARMAN

Can anyone give us a realistic viewpoint of the NC State team? I remember visiting their stadium in 2009, and thinking we would win, and getting crushed in the 2nd half. Their quarterback Glennon is from my area, he had a brother that played NCAA ball as well, and people say he is better than his brother. Just how much of a threat is NC State? I would do the stats analysis this week, but am a little busy but does anyone know whether they are a legit 3-1 team? I ain't talking just numbers but also level of competition. Anyone know?

The Dude

So you think Miami needs 2 LBs in this class? What about Stacy Thomas?

The Dude

Posted by: Laquinton | September 25, 2012 at 11:31 PM

Interesting question. Grace said he wanted to go where Thomas goes or maybe he said he wanted to wait like Thomas was, I cant remember. But I like us getting Grace more than Thomas. Last Booker T. kid we got was OT under Shannon. I think it depends on some on sanctions too and how some SEC schools go after them. I'll say its less than a coin flip, but the chances go up with every win and how well the coach on the non offensive side of the ball can sell them on his scheme and being a pipeline to the pros. 40%ish, but I dont know.

The Dude

Can we put cash in the envelope?

The dude.. That's spot on sir.

Looks like glennons favorite target is a 6'4'' junior so far he has 18 catches for 338 yards and 1 td. im confident in Brandon he has been playing smart and aggressive

The Dude

I imagine NCST will do much of the same as Boston College did and they will be the first team we've faced since BC that has the drop back and pass scheme, except NCST is better. We will see how far our coordinator that doesnt coach offense has come. As far as David Amerson is concerned, alot of what you saw agaist Tennessee was the safety not staying back and Amerson realeased the WR to the zone. That being said, NCST wants that kid to take chances because he is a playmaker and can hurt the Canes. We should pick and choose how attack him and keep up with that SWEET 9 step drop we've been working on.

The Dude

Posted by: TonyCane | September 25, 2012 at 10:26 PM

I may be a touch more optimistc than you TonyCane. If we win our next 2, one of which is on the road vs a top 10 team, I will go out on a limb and say we get to between 17 or 19. But yeah, beating NCST and getting ranked is a stretch. It will really depend on how we win.

TonyCane

We are NOT ranked if we beat NCST. We only got one vote in the AP this week. If we beat Notre Dame we probably break in at #23 or 24.

I remember a Miami Hurricane squad in 2006 that reached 5-2 and was still unranked.

Keep in mind, depending on what poll you are reading Miami got 1 or 2 votes. That means we will have to blow the doors off NCST and jump some people or 17 teams in front of us need to lose. We are not as close to the Top 25 as you are thinking we are.

If we beat NCST we may be ranked top 25.

It will be close and will depend on others win/losses.

Zero chance we are over ranked for rating purposes or to help the Irish's fall from grace if we beat them.

RDurk4

Here's my analysis. If we beat NC State, we'll be ranked. We probably deserve it. But we may get over ranked because people want us to be over-hyped for the ND game for ratings, and to boost them up if we lose, or lessen the impact on ND if we win. What do you guys think?

Miami's 2012 Recruiting Class Ranked Ninth

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- In its 30th annual breakdown of college baseball's top recruiting classes, Collegiate Baseball newspaper ranked the Miami Hurricanes' 2012 class as the ninth-best in the nation.

The Hurricanes' 13-member class, comprised of 11 true freshmen, one redshirt freshman and one junior, was ranked third-best in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The rankings are based on players who enroll at school each fall. Players who initially signed with a school and then signed a professional contract after being drafted do not count in the overall evaluation.

Clemson (No. 5), North Carolina (No. 8), Florida State (No. 19), Georgia Tech (No. 28) and Virginia (No. 32) rounded out the ACC teams ranked in the top 40.

1 Vanderbilt Commodores
2 UCLA Bruins
3 Arizona State Sun Devils
4 LSU Tigers
5 Clemson Tigers
6 Stanford Cardinal
7 Florida Gators
8 North Carolina Tar Heels

Hey CEO, I'll take this one... with your kind permission.

Because the most successful forms of media today provide free content. "The Space" is governed by intelligent, discerning people. It's made through interesting discussion and perpetuated by rabid lunatic Cane fans.

I use the word "competitors" loosely here. There really is no competition. The Space's "competitors" charge for content based on rumors and hearsay. I believe the CEO said it best:

OGV...I will be arriving Friday night but late with Mrs. 86. No dinner but at least early AM departure for the stadium. I have one extra and a parking pass for U.

BLH

I know this has been already discussed, but NC State is definitely a winnable game for us, but as mentioned, the fear is in this being a "trap" game.

Does the defense throw more blitzes at Glennon, more than we've been blitzing the first three games. Is that going to overexpose our pass coverage?

I'm keeping my fingers crossed on defense, because I admit their passing game scares me a little.

BigWindyCane-Forecast1

Saturday's game against NC-State is a BIG game for the U in my opinion. ***

This team needs to follow success with success and stay hungry instead of getting satisfied and thinking they are better than they are.

Posted by: Gin & Tonic | September 25, 2012 at 01:56 PM

Agreed. If the Canes can beat NC State, they will be in the Coastal Division drivers' seat with 5 games to go. Two ACC games are tough - one against FSU on the road and another at home against Va Tech (Va Tech also must play FSU). The remaining ACC games are also challenging - UNC, Virginia and Duke, all beatable as long as the Canes are focused.

I know this is a young team and most expect letdowns, but I think Al Golden has built a different kind of U-tough team. I have not seen this kind of team in Coral Gables in quite some time.

prediction - if the Canes win by two touchdowns on Saturday and they remain relatively healthy, the Canes will win the ACC Coastal Division.

SOUP

Al Golden's hardened troops didn't give in and and they didn't give up.

These players, this team, would not quit on their coach or on each other.

Instead they played together as a team, like a team of fearless road warriors.

And when the game was over, the only smell in the air was not that of fear, but the wonderful smell of sweet, sweet victory.

BLH

Solarcane

I understand what you are saying and I appreciate your response.

I tend to compartmentalise these things and therefore find no equivalency. For me, they are in two completely different universes. The type of outrage I feel in the NFL situation is worlds apart from what I feel for the abused or for other real world problems.

Similarly, the outrage I might feel in a business situation is in another category as well. I love the canes. I love the other sports because its fun. So you can say that while sports outrage is real, it is substantially different than emotions that are rooted in real world problems.

Don't take this the wrong way because no disrespect is intended. Abuse, hunger, and other real world problems are not to be taken lightly. But since this is a canes and sports site, to me the outrage seems proportional and not overboard, keeping in mind it's "sports" outrage

I will qualify then by saying that I am deeply outraged at the bungling of the NFL situation, in a "sports" kind of way.

Cheers.

Harry Miller

OGV, I know he likes Tedford. I know he wants to be a continder for a NC. I will talk to him and his dad about what he is thinking.

Hi BLH ,
I was just thinking out loud as sports fans we tend to get outraged and vocal on injustice in sports a tad overboard.
There are plenty of people getting abused a lot more seriously than pro football team owners. umike got my drift

LaQuinton

Thank you for the Ricky town updates harry

BLH

I wonder how many outraged voice mails women in distress got Monday?

Posted by: solarcane | September 25, 2012 at 04:43 PM

I'm not sure what your point is. Then again, maybe I'm not thinking it through properly.

orange 'n green in the vein

Harry, do you have any idea how Tedford's seat bubbling under him at Berkeley affect Ricky Town's interest in them or is it irrelevant to his location proximity interest in them?

Harry Miller

Our main compition for Ricky town will be the California Golden bears, because Ricky grew up here right next to Berkely home of the Bears,
I believe it will come down to which program is in the best position to win an National championship. That's as long as Al golden is still at the U.
I keep telling Rick his Dad that Ricky would be the most telivised, most talked about, most loved, most hated, because other's love to hate the Canes. All this means ESPN would be forced to make Miami there main topic of the show. We could shut slober mouth Holt's up.
I have been a diehard Miami Hurricane fan for over 65 yrs and its all about the U.
