It totally reeks of awesomeness. On the radio broadcast on WVUM Saturday they were talking about how well represented UM was in the endzone, so you and your fellow Hurricanes definitely made your presence felt in Chapel Hill UpNorth. Now to keep the Hurricane's streak of always winning a national championship this millennium when they get a win on the road in Alumni Stadium . . .

The reporters were asking D'No all the wrong questions. I would HATE to be on defense this week. My guess is they have never had their butts chewed so hard. I just hope the guys got the point. D'No seemed embarassed in his interview. My guess is they bounce back for KST.

The Miami fan turnout at BC was freaking awesome, gotta say.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Alot of K States skill guys are really small, like 5'7 and 5'8. Klein is an average passer with really good wheels. Klein only throws about 21 times per game but last week he threw 28 time and completed 19 passes. They struggled against an inferior opponent and turned it on late. I cant see what it is that Missouri St did to give them trouble because I cant find any game tape, but it sounds like from Goldens interview the Miami staff is already on it. Hopefully we have the blueprint and the personel.

Dude on a Pale Horse

D'No saying that Miami went on a 40-9 run or whatever he said is really deflecting a lot of blame he deservse and taking alot of credit for things he had no hand in, such as a Rettig fumbled snap and a WR dropping a sure TD. Also that jump ball on Finnie, the OC for BC got him, he had 6'4" WR on 5'10" Finnie.

orange 'n green in the vein

The Dude, I thought Rettig got in on that fourth down sneak play personally. Of course, I thought he was in on third down too and was shocked they quick snapped instead of waiting for the review to take a look upstairs, but that's why Spaziani is on the warm seat I figure.

WWIN

Upnorth,

Thanks for putting me on the banner, I really appreciate it, I feel honored lol. Nice new pic also, I have to get my lil girl some canes gear

Dude on a Pale Horse

I figured it out! I have the perfect strategy for D'Nos defense the rest of the year! Okay, its 3rd and 8, and D'No can eiter (A) blitz Ramon Buchanon, AGAIN (B) rush 4 AGAIN, or... (C) have his guys take a 5 yard penelty and try to entice the offense to run on 3rd down. Huh? Oh yeah! :)

86Cane

K-State's coach on Miami’s Duke Johnson…

“He’s a tremendously talented little player. He has tremendous speed, which is what most people would identify him as someone who runs extremely fast. I think he is a very talented running back in regards to having good vision and being able to know where the holes open up. He has good movement, so he can move laterally as well as straight ahead. He has good quickness to go along with his speed, and I think that he is perhaps probably growing as a receiver as well. They utilize him a lot of different ways, so that tells me he can do a lot of different things.”

86Cane

K-State's coach on how Boston College did against Miami…

“I think as much as anything, the first ballgame can be complex because you do not know what you are going to see, and normally you see what you did not expect to see. That was a conference game for both of those teams, so there was a lot of preparation. My guess is that Boston College presented a variety of different schemes that Miami perhaps did not expect. Boston College is a big movement team, lot of shifting, and motion that created some problems that caused some missed assignments by Miami. I think is probably what manifested all of that. Boston College got off to a quick start with two immediate touchdowns, but then there was a period of time, and I think Al (Golden) was quoted as saying that they went from play 14 to play 50 something, so about 46 plays in which Boston College did not score after they got off to that fast start. It was getting acclimated to what they were doing, but still 441 yards is a lot of yards. So you could say that Boston College is probably pretty good at throwing the ball as well.”

86Cane

Senior Linebacker Arthur Brown
On the defensive performance against Missouri State…

“There were times throughout the game where it was a little iffy and skeptical, but once we got going, we really filled some of the holes that actually needed to be filled.”

On playing Miami in Manhattan…

“It is going to be different, but our approach as a team is the same. We are definitely going to identify where it is we need to improve from last game and make those proper steps in order to do so. Our approach to the game is selfish – it is not different than last year.”

On the biggest improvement needed from last week…

“We need to be more consistent and start as well as we finish. Getting out to a great start is going to impact this game a lot.”

Laquinton

Ugh. I dispise Arthur brown. This game they should focus on Klein. Just like that post about Jimmy johnsons innovating 4-3 defense they should make Klein beat them in the air. I believe coach d is playing zone 75% of the game cause ge doesnt trust his corners 1 on 1

Dude on a Pale Horse

Miami's blitz was much more effective from the 2ndary rather than the LBs. Im curious to see if Klein sees alot of pressure from the DBs.

HawaiiCane

Disappointed HawaiiCane didn't make the banner... but, I'll be at Soldier Field when we face the Irish on Oct. 6th. Only problem is the last 3 away games I went to were losses (Florida, Florida State & Ohio State).

SJMPARMAN

Check out these two quotes. One is obviously a chess player and one is not.

Fisch's strategy:

"We went into that game against Boston College saying the best way to attack them was pushing the tempo and felt as if that was going to be something against that team and that defense. Coming off playing them the last game the year before you kind of have to show them some other wrinkles," Fisch said. "We'll continue each week to determine the best way to move the football and how we're going to do it. Whether it be running the ball. Whether it be stretching the field or hurrying up. That's what we'll go out and execute on game day."

“They kind of ran a lot of the things they ran last year, lots of zone,” Amidon said. “You could see the holes in the zone — and [offensive coordinator Doug] Martin did a good job scheming it up. They had a lot of holes early so [we] took advantage of that.”

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/09/04/2984775/miami-hurricanes-on-the-defensive.html#storylink=cpy

D'NoFense quote:

“The first [two] series of the game, the coordinator we played against, he made a decision to go well away from what he’s ever done. We played him five times when we were at Temple. The last two times we played them we won 48-14 and 48-13, something like that. He made a decision to go well away from that, put a whole new package in that he probably hadn’t done before based on the familiarity that we had with him. So that took a couple of series to sort through. We went on a 41-9 run after that.”

Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/09/04/2984775/miami-hurricanes-on-the-defensive.html#storylink=cpy

So one coordinator went into the game recognizing his opponent would look at last year's game and develop a scheme to beat him and he showed something different. The other coordinator went into the game and expected his opponent to do exactly the same thing he had done in the past, when he was at another school nonetheless, even though it had been completely unsuccessful against him. As a result, the opponent does something different, jumps out to a two touchdown lead, which damn near jeopardized the game given the Canes serious youth on offense. Why wouldn't the second coordinator try to show something different as well?

Good point on not waiting for a booth review on the completion to Evans. I think maybe w/ time winding down they hurried their decision. Also I was very suprised the refs said Rettig didnt get in.

HawaiiCane

Thanks Raize!!! Oh, that included both losses to Ohio State at Colombus and the NC!

UpNorth... Just glad you got a victory! Hoping for the same.

My last loss was the very last game in the Orange Bowl. What a POS game that was. That was when the TE exposed us and it hasn't stopped since.....

I stand corrected....the Champs Bowl from a few years ago was also a loss. But hey, the tailgating was one of the best and I have video to prove it.

Which is a good thing cause I don't recall too much.

I also would just like to point out that Doug Martin's career record in the MAC as a head coach . . . 29-53, best year was 6-6 and the only year his offense approached acceptable season numbers with a roster of players he recruited was in 2008 when they averaged 25.7 points a game, exactly 400 yards of offense and they hung 41 points in a three point win at home in a year they went 4-8.

At least he yells a lot at practice though, from what I understand.

Montreal-Cane

Per Yahoo! sports...

Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday that the NFLPA is looking into the Drew Rosenhaus-Rubin relationship after widespread player losses. Rosenhaus denied wrongdoing. Rubin declined comment.

[Exclusive: Drew Rosenhaus scrutinized for relationship with financial adviser]

Owens just knows he’s 38, perhaps headed toward bankruptcy and one of the reasons his approximately $80 million in NFL earnings has all but vanished is because bad deals and poor oversight from an agent-financial adviser team.

Or put it this way: how could Owens, late in his career, wind up throwing a couple of his last million dollars at a risky, rural Alabama bingo parlor project?

Then again, how could 34 other athletes, 18 of them Drew Rosenhaus’ clients, get roped in for what bankruptcy filings indicate could be a combined $43.6 million?

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | September 05, 2012 at 01:24 AM

Nonsense. Looks like you're parroting what you read in wikipedia.

From 2006-10, Martin's offense at Kent State averaged 422.6 yards and 26.3 points per game. The team recorded a remarkable 16,907 yards of total offense during that span.

Came to Boston College after serving as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for one season (2011) at New Mexico State. There, he helped lead the Aggies to an average 398 yards of total offense per game and 273 passing yards per game; ranked 25th among Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) teams in passing offense.

See:

http://www.bceagles.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/martin_doug00.html

Clearly, our D needs a major do over. BC's OC however, has a history of putting up lots of yards to his credit.

What's up spacers, been to the poor man's South Beach, vacating (N. Myrtle Beach).
Just a few belated comments on the game.
Missed most of the first quarter but from what I can see, Duke is the bomb. Dude sees a hole and it's like a rat after some cheese.
The front 4 on dee got little pressure on the QB, as usual, so this led to a ton of passing yds.
At least 10 times I saw completions w/ nobody within in 10 yds of the WR or RB. Somebody was taking a serious siesta.
Tackling looked good and it was good we got some T.O's. TE's are missing in action, I guess by design.
Did not like the playing calling after we got the fumble near the goal line. That was just messed up. Jedd got to pass happy and then an obvious run on 2ND down went no where.
Agree with some comments we need to be more aggressive on defense. If we are going to cough half a thou every game playing swiss cheese defense, we might as well play agressive and give up the same.
I made a comment sometime back about our DT's and unfortunately, it's probably going to be this way for awhile until either one of those dough boys sees the light going off or we can get some real talent at the position. It doesn't matter who we have in the secondary, if they have to chase someone for 7 to 10 seconds, while the QB is eating a sandwhich and drinking a beer before he has to throw.
Yes it was a win and I'm praying we get to 6 vics, quickly. I do not want to see this team to half to take another bowl ban next year. We should be loaded.

True story: UpNorth told me that during one play he heard the BC QB shout out to the sideline for a ham and swiss on rye and a cold Bud light.

He was gonna order a bowl of chowda on the next play but thought he might get it all over his jersey so he declined.

D('No?), the quote he was giving regarded Doug Martin's time as a head coach in the MAC first of all, second of all, Doug Martin as a head coach in the MAC only averaged better offensive production in the first two years of his tenure there, in other words, with Deen Pees' players doing most of the upperclassmen heavy lifting. The only decent year the guy had as a coach in the MAC, he went .500 while they averaged a whole 17.8 points a game, the only year he had a team of his recruits that they averaged 22 or more points was when D'No gave up the 2nd highest point total to them all year long while they went 4-8. I'll fully grant you NMSU saw an increase in offensive numbers one year under Martin last season, but they also returned 9 starters including the QB which would probably have helped any other one year OC accomplish the same.

Doug Martin is not some offensive genius by any stretch of the imagination, unless the guy charged with stopping his offense lived with Golden in the dorms in college, then he's the 2nd coming of Art Briles.

We face former Cane Arthur Brown this week, I expect him to play well and be one of the first LB's in the draft next year, here is some other former Canes Season Debut's last week.

QB Robert Marve, Purdue -- Marve, who was granted his sixth year of eligibility, passed for a career-high 295 yards and three touchdowns with an interception while completing 30 of 38 passes in a 48-6 win over Eastern Michigan. Marve played at Miami 2007-08.

RB Storm Johnson, UCF -- Johnson rushed for 34 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries in his UCF debut in a 56-14 win over Akron. Johnson played at Miami in 2010.

LB Travis Williams, Youngstown State -- Williams had two tackles in Division I-AA Youngstown State’s 31-17 upset over Pittsburgh. Williams played at Miami in 2010.

tjl3909

frkin Brown has played lights out since he left here so what was the problem? Randy used to get asked about him every week and always come up with a lame excuse. I would like to have him now, but since he's not here I hope we kick his azz

UMike

tjl...RS played favorites..and if you were in his doghouse, forget it, you weren't seeing the field...whoever watched Brown in the spring games knew he should have been playing LOTS more..other examples are Streeter, Marve etc

RECRUITING UPDATE:

Sophomore quarterback Ricky Town looked cool as a cucumber in only his second varsity start. The transfer from West Hills Chaminade completed 16 of 23 passes for 340 yards with three touchdowns and ran for another score as the host Seraphs, ranked No. 9 in the Southland by The Times, spoiled Centennial's season opener for the second consecutive year.

"The offensive line did a great job giving me time to throw and all around our receivers are great, so I just try to get it to them," said Town, who was 10 of 11 for 175 yards and four touchdowns in the Seraphs' 48-0 season-opening win at Los Angeles Garfield last week.

"The goal was to keep the football in our hands and with our pro-style offense we'll take five yards every time."

LAST 14 YEAR MATCHUPS
All week long, KSU HC Snyder harped on his team about starting fast (last year only beat FCS EKU 10-7 in opener) but the Wildcats found themselves up only 9-6 at halftime vs Missouri St. One of the reasons it was close was the fact they rarely blitzed on D and ran a vanilla offense (QB Klein only 13 rushes). KSU did break free in the 2H in the 51-9 win but the yards were close 493-418. UM is clearly in rebuilding mode in the 2nd year under Golden with just 10 returning starters. Last week, despite being outgained 542-415 and down 14-0 early, they beat Boston College 41-32 on the road snapping a 2 game losing streak to BC. Frosh RB Johnson broke 2 long td runs averaging 19.3 ypc and QB Morris was efficient with 207 yards (62%)! Last year Kansas pulled the upset on the road! Collin Klein threw for 132 yards and ran for 93 and RB Hubert rushed for 166. KSU led 17-3 at half and 21-10 late in the 3Q. UM battled back and down 28-24, QB Harris was stopped on 4&gl at the 1.5 yard line with :49 left.This week Sndyer joked, “that he’s going to tell his team that he wants a very slow start to see what happens.” KSU will put forth a much better effort TW.

1. Phil Steele took BC by 10 last week.

2. This week Kansas ST 31, Miami 17.

Shows even the SMART ones can get it wrong too once in a while. the problem wiuth SMART guys like Steele is that they use stats and computers and odds and forget to factor is what is REALLY happening in Coral Gables:

A COMPLETE MAKEOVER OF THE TEAM AND A TOTAL ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT AND CULTURE CHANGE.

Steele is a GREEN (thinker). He see's things as a logical, linear, mathematic equation that points to the winner in black and white terms.

Steele is not a BLUE (feeler.) He does not factor in emotion, confidence, committment and other human factors because he assumes those things are irrelvant or non-factors in winning and losing.

He is wrong. The equation for winning and losing is a combination of both, maybe 70/30 or 60/40. It is how an Appalacian St beat a Michigan or how just about every week there are HUGE upsets.

If you look at this UM from the outside and "just the cold, hard facts" of course you would pick UM to lose.

But this Coach, this Hurricane team and "we" all know better...

orange 'n green in the vein

86, I'd say you're pretty much right on the analytical based approach Steele applies, he's looking for value against the spread to make money, emotion doesn't provide value in that kind of game theory. But he does factor some of that into his analysis to a point, it's why he's got the line about KSU pulling the upset on the road last year with an exclamation point punctuating it after all.

By comparison;
http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/features/writers/expert/picks

Clean sweep for KSU here too. Feldman however does have some emotion as indicated here;

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/blog/bruce-feldman/20049085/top-10-list-the-loudest-stadiums-ive-ever-been-in

It's easy to pick us as losers, since we coughed up over half a thousand yds on defense, to a less than stellar BC team, however, this particualr team is eerily similar to the 1999 or 98 team that coughed up 6o sumthing pts to the Cuse and beat UCLA to halt their undefeated season. This season should be a wild ride, alot of ebb and flows. I too can't see us winning this weekend but it should be entertaining, 31-21. Our talent on offense is scary but our dee front is scary too. If the trend continues defensively, our CBs will know exactly how Custer felt.

Q, just a snippet, summary of the contents?

herbie, now you're talking about my football teams as an underclassmen and you've gone too far with that comparison. Team is more like the '09 version so far to me. Obviously the sample size is too small to really know what's going to happen the rest of the way with any certainty. Ask a BC fan how good their team is, they'll tell you they suck and Spaz needed to be fired last year before they upset UM in the finale.

I agree, in the words of Vince Lombardi, "Stats are for losers"!

Pretty much saying they had a gameplan to throw more. Have him be more pro style and Have Klein be in the pocket more but that didn't work so well.. So going into the second half coach Snyder let him do his thing.. Which is running more and when he stepped off the field their redshirt freshman qb is a beast

Man I dread tonight on ESPN, you know those guys are going to go on & on about how the G-men beat Dallas. Another complete over-kill hour of disecting a week one NFL game.

Herb...they have had it on ALL day: Boys vs GMen ad nauseum. I think they forgot about Tebow and Tiger just for ONE day at ESPN? LOL

herbie,
you know what is going on on the field as well or better than most folks here, mute ESPN, crank some Santana, Stevie Ray, or your choice and enjoy the game.

In my opinion they should have uploaded big bucks to get Michael Strahan in the booth.The guys articulate knows football and is funny as hell.
