Yeah. This team needs to find some stability in its ranks.. As far as dense goes. I believe in coach golden . It is a process

TonyCane

That's true. A lot of people wanted him gone, all the way up to 2000 after the Washington loss.

Jack

Pbcfrcane, I agree! They ran like 80% of the time and we all knew it. I just don't get it. Make an adjustment from game to game coach. I make adjustments all the time for my 10-12 yr olds, that is coaching 101. F#%k I am frustrated.....

Felipe

Most retweeted tweet from the game was this:

@NOTSportsCenter

BREAKING: After seeing what Kansas State has done to them, National Weather Service downgrades the U from the Canes to the Miami Raindrops

pbcfrcane, unfortunately that philosophy and approach you just mentioned is not respected or appreciated anymore. Losing with effort and passion is scary to people (Jimmy Johnson was a rebel personality and his teams were labeled thugs because they fought to the end--coaching adjustments are a part of that "fight"--coaches are responsible too). Some elites like UM President Donna Shalala and find some positives in our coaches decision to die slow. It shows conformity, an ability to bow down, be complacent, and mediocrity.

The Shepards want sheep--that lie down without a fight. This shut is being praised in corporate America. We stayed in our place and accepted defeat today. Golden and No'D showed the ability to take a knee and concede. They'll still get league jobs watch.

Tad Foote is still winning. The culture that we fans are suffering as a rest of--starts at the top of the university. Alabama and those SEC schools have staff dedicated to winning first and money second-- from top to bottom.

#98 was getting handled.
#31 was playing too far off the ball
#59 should be playing more often
#44 was okay.. But that goal line play.. Was terrible Klein shook him and walked in.
#7 bum
#22 above ok
#72 not strong enough...

Its just sad because I had a great feeling about this game. But 50 points ? Gosh....
I cant believe this.. We need porter and Robinson although porter is hurt and rob is having issues we need push on the line. Even Linder,bunche,Henderson had a bad game. We new Miami wasn't gonna go undefeated but nobody saw this coming. Moving forward I hope we all see a more prepared team. all but the linebackers did a good job

Felipe

Dude #59 was owned, check Barry Jackson's numbers. 5 minute span the guy basically gave a whole game away.

Hassan

Some positives from the game and beyond

From the actual game we saw that Morris is def a good QB he was 19-25 and Duke alone account for half of the misses.

Chick got a sack maybe that helps to get him going for the final 10 games.

Perryman played decent.

Duke had another big play and that helps him

We played lots of young guys and sometimes in order to win you have to lose big, this was a bapitism by fire and unlike past Canes teams this will taste bad in the mouth of our young guns and they will wor even harder to get better.

We know 100% that the scheme needs tweaking, ME's from players or not you can not keep doing the same thing expecting different results.


Long term positives. The KSU team avg age was 22 we have 18 year old guys out there. People talk the sky is falling but we are getting nationally ranked kids and even our 2 stars like EJ are not bad players they just are first year guys starting their 2nd game on the road against guys with 30 starts under their belts.....

Coach D has the pressure of community on him and he will produce he is a proven coach and he will make the changes he needs, not overnight but eventually we will get better on D.

Top to bottom we are not a super talented team, we have some talent and most of that is 1st year players, we will continue to recruit great players, in the long run we have repaired bridges to many local HS better then since Coker fired Solinger. guys like Ej and Pierre and Parryman wil get bigger stronger and better, we do not have all the pieces but we knew this year we was not going undefeated this loss could be the worse of the Golden era and the rock bottom on our way to the top.

Zakkee

LaQuin, Gaines was the worst player on defense today besides Telemaque, Cain, and Highsmith. Eddie Johnson played well overall.

We need Porter bad, but he's always hurt.

The Dude

Where is anyone getting that Robinson is any good? The dude is MAYBE the 4th best DT on the team. He put a lucky left hand on a guy carrying a ball too loosely and now we need him? Nah, Robinson has not been missed at all. He would have been blown off the ball this game, just like the last.

Pbcfrcane13

Yea not sure what game you were watching but Gaines got toyed with all day....Im telling you I really would like to see what Saleo suggested and move Cain who is a small DE and move him back to LB maybe its to late but he played damn well the one time he had a chance again I know it was Duke, but who cares....move cain to MLB you have perryman and EJ44 as your OLB and let the young kids take their licks no in Hamilton and McCord backing up Green.

Felipe

Robinson missed that tackle even. It's humorous.

Pbcfrcane13

btw VT needs to go 5 years in the program and I still never see him making a play Highsmith at least stood up the RB on a play and takcled him! If Im AG anybody who is a a SR sorry, but your a back up I need my young guys to play now and get ready for our run in 2013 and 2014 thanks for all your hard work and you will always be a cane.

Wow, Tulane safety fractured his spine, broke his neck, and had a collapsed lung today. Revived and will need spinal surgery within 48 hours.

Jack

I like # 44 he is a good freshman!

WWIN

I've seen a lot of defenses in my years and this is the worst. This is the worst defense I've seen from any college team this year including Alabama vs western Kentucky. Its no way anybody can tell me that we got the worst defensive talent in all of college football, no way in hell. Ksu ran trick plays on the goal line just to prove how ridiculous our d is, if they had any respect for d'no they wouldn't have did that. When have you ever seen a qb throw a behind the back pass at the goal line?? The scores last year didn't show how bad some of the games really was. If you come back while the second string is in the game doesn't count in my book, example the fsu game was really a blow out in my book but the score didn't show it.

We have just about all Florida high school football players on our squad, the state of Florida produces the best football talent in the world, our bad players are better than most states good players but yet I keep hearing people say the talent is gone?? We have been sending players to the league constantly since at least 2001 so I guess they have enough talent to play in the nfl just not in the ncaa. I guarantee that players on this same defense will be playing in the nfl. So stop wit this we don't have talent stuff

I cant agree more w/ that statement. It seems when they get to the NFL, teams try this new wave of football thinking called "coaching." We should try that on our team and heck I dont know, see what happens?

Yeah Skool this one hurt but I gotta believe its gonna get better.

mi@mic@ne

I dont like all this trust the system. I always thought defense was when everyone moved to the ball. Its kind of simple.. kill the guy with the ball... reck havoc and destroy things. lol

I see guys who are in position but they are also in concrete. Where is the old adage about our d ends pinning their ears back and bull rushing around their man? Now they just hold the blocks and stay in their lanes without moving to get the qb.

If your moving to the ball is all you got to think about is going at the rite angle. And if someone is out of position all the other 10 guys can make up for it if they are not waiting around but they close up the space. Back in the day we would string the play out and 6 guys would be their to make the tackle because they were reacting instead of being in their place.

Account Deleted

Didn't see the game, did the KS QB really toss one behind the back to score a TD? If so, the D should be too embarrassed to show there faces at the airport and walk home

solarcane

by the end of the season soup's yard is gonna look like a putting green

Account Deleted

Agree on the D scheme. The U always rushed the ends up field, the DT's held the line. LB's cleaned up the gaps. The DB's excelled at man to man, leaving the FS to roam the field. Lord it was awesome. Huge hits, gang tackling, speed all over.

Now, seems wr's are uncovered, no pass rush, huge holes instead of hits, and alot of defenders that just plain look lost. Speed? not on the D so far

Pbcfrcane13

No he tossed it behind his back while jumping up in the air like he was doing the tebow play and the RB couldnt catch it.

Pbcfrcane13

Basically KSU coaches not scared of our team to try some "new" plays.

AlpharettaCane

Is John Gruden still available?


mi@mic@ne

I remember being frustrated because reverses would usually work against our d. The reason is we were not gonna let a team run around our ends. The whole defense got a jump on their sweeps.

Best post of the day right there!

SJMPARMAN

Everyone on here needs to get a grip. It is one loss and it was out of conference. I think this is a coaching issue and not a talent issue. I would be more concerned if I believed it was a talent issue.

Most of their big runs came from a formation that we didn't adjust to. They lined up with a tight end and one running back. And for whatever reason, we played six players and not seven in the box. Sometimes, the LB who was not in the box was cheating outside toward the recievers. Sometimes he was lined up on the line of scrimmage outside the tight end. In any event, he is of no help in defending the running game when he is not in the box.

When a team is in a full spread with no tight end, you can play that way. You can't do it when a tight end in one the line. There are just too many hats on defenders inside and you get eaten alive. That happened so many times today. Hopefully, they will look at the tape and realize they need to always keep at least 7, and when that is not working, 8 guys in the box.

tks for the td pass info....

Old Skool

LOL Great line Solar

orange 'n green in the vein

The good news is that Hassan is wrong.

It will get better instantly because BCC will get 386 yards or less on offense next week, UM will win by half the margin they loss today by and will still be in tied for first in the division with a change to beat one of the two favorites to win the division title out of four other eligible winners of the division.

I just got done weeding so the future is bright fellow 'Cane fans. Who won Al Golden post game conference Bingo tonight on here anyway?

Felipe

SEC is so boring to watch on ESPN. Not sure why.

solarcane

thanks guys,
making fun of these Canes at soup's expense is like being in the bonus situation

orange 'n green in the vein

Is it too soon to ask how good TCU's linebackers are looking tonight? They could probably tackle Klein this year I bet.

Account Deleted

From what i see ahead based on two games, my thoughts

2 wins - duke and bethune

2 maybe wins - NC State, USF,

4 maybe losses - NC, ND, Vir, GT

2 lost - VT, FSU,

Give or take a game either way, 6-6 is about right.

wonder what Susan is predicting now? thought her comments said ask after game 2...

mi@mic@ne

I said when we got Al that the best scenario would be Randy running the d...because he was the coordinator in 2002 and our d was man to man with corners coming up hard. But of course that would be impossible since you got to cut ties with the old guard. We still need that old style because it showcases the d tackles and d ends. They know were they are going every play before the ball is snapped...its just a matter of how quick they get there.

The dude,

And its bad when the best player on the other team is one of your rejects lol. If brown was still here everybody would be talking about how much he's under achieving and he can't understand the playbook or terminology, look like he understands everything now. He gets a new coach and he magically turns all-american lol. Like I said, the talent hasn't left Da U (except to transfer or go to the nfl) the coaching has. I like Al but he needs to know that friends don't let friends coach drunk

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Seriously funny, cuz it true.

Pbcfrcane13

Watching UCLA NEB this is what I thought todays game would look like......Im so glad I deleted the game from my dvr!

Laquinton

I am very Pissed about Arthur brown bring a aa and killing Miami today. This was a team loss. I read that the players didn't support the benching and leaving Luther Robinson in coral gables.. True or not he should have been on that field. next week can't come fat enough

Account Deleted

found the AG post game video...he looked shell shocked and just plain wiped out.

Gave no excuses though, just a plain old whopping.....everyone including himself needs to do a better job.

In truth he knows what a rebuilding project this is going to be....just hard to accept

mi@mic@ne

Arthur brown may be a home body... maybe he was a head case

CGNC

Tonycane - when I went through my checklist of games that were ugly, I forgot about the LSU 40-3 loss in 2005. That is when I first realized we were probably in trouble. I never envisioned it would stick around for as long as it has though

mi@mic@ne

College football is a game reacting quickly...its playing as fast as you can..just a little slower is not close to winning but its losing big.

roachcane77

From the AG video I watched, AG DOES seem shell shocked. "Outcoached and outplayed in all 3 phases."

For some reason, I don't feel like he doubts his schemes though... just player execution. (Reminds me of Randy.) I just don't see ANY coaches getting fired anytime soon... (Not that I would EXPECT a "firing" after game #2.)

Our stats are just horrible.

I'm not happy...

SJMPARMAN

That LSU game was a shocker not just because it was a bowl game but because we looked seriously outcoached in that game. And we were. And we have been ever since.

Wow Chick looks really upset about this and Im glad to see it! Maybe (and Im hoping here lol) this is what a young team needs. A whooping that Golden can turn and say see you can't just because of one win roll the helmet with the U on it and think your going to win! Maybe?...........

SJMPARMAN

If you don't think coaching matters look at what Jim Mora has done for UCLA. Night and Day between this year and last year.

SJMPARMAN

You are right CGNC, there was a huge talent disparity between LSU and us then. That was Coker's first recruiting class as seniors and it showed.

WWIN

So western kentucky gives up 328 TOTAL YARDS to #1 Alabama and we give up 498 TOTAL YARDS to big bad #21 KSU????
