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.

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.....

Most retweeted tweet from the game was this:

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.

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?

Longtime..time to wash the car and sweep the garage?.

SOUP, get your guitar, an icy Redbridge, and do a little caterwauling, It'll chase away your blues, works for me!

Go Canes!!!

I want to give a game ball to each and every Miami football player who made the trip but DIDN'T play today. At least they DIDN'T suck!

I'd rather sit on shingles and pass kidney stones than sit through that game again.

Pbcfr, some guy on the west coast started drinking bourbon at 9:30 am!

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

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.

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

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.

ROTFLMAO

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.
