D'No defense is poop. Its a passive defense thats wait on what the other team does to make a move. Its a culture clash with the type of players that are usually in South Florida and particularly on the DL.

In saying that, we win this game by forcing KSU to kick FGs if they reach the red zone and getting turnovers. As we saw at BC thats the formula for winning. Over the past 3 years we have outgained plenty of teams and lost, including FSU last year and Ohio State the year before due to Turnovers. Am looking forward to our guys punishing Klein as a GROUP and trying to rip the ball out of his hands. I love the way we tackled at BC and i know it will continue.

I don't think we can expect 34 points against a team returning 40+ starters playing there first real game at home.

I see our offensive total somewhere near or below 24 points. And if they score 30 points against us, we lose this game. Maybe 24-21 in your best scenario. When a home team scores 30 plus or more, they almost always win. The crowd gets juiced during the game and even an experienced team has a hard time overcoming it. That is why the D must be better than last week. The players have the talent for sure. The coach has to believe in them.

Hurri

Since I'm still up....34-30 UM

You guys be good round' here.

SJMPARMAN

Last year. we were clearly the more talented team and we lost against K State. Compare NFL Miami NFL roster entries from 2011 team to K State and there is no comparison. We got beat because they were a better team, not better individually but collectively better as a team.

There is a coaching element when more talented players lose to a less talented team. For me last year, that was on the defensive side of the ball. From line play, to linebacker play to secondary, the K State team was just better coached against us.

But the talent we lost from last year's team has been replaced by new, young talent. I think we are better at the OL positions, better at the QB position, better at RB because we have a dynamic player in Duke who just has a different skill set than Lamarr had, we are better at WR because these players aren't so limited in their routes. On defensive line, there isn't much talent difference but there is at LB, and there definitely is at the safety positions. I also prefer our corners slightly over last year.

So talent wise, we match up very well against K State. My concern this year is this a better TEAM than last year. Can they summon the strength K State did against Miami last year to win not based on individual talent but based upon being a team. Is it too much to expect such young players to hang together as a team when the inexperience of individual talented players might be tested.

History says they will fail because relying on true freshman and sophmores is not normally a recipe for success. I thought they had a good chance against BC last week but to be honest I would not have been surprised by an L. Thankfully, these players surprised me. But I watched that video tonight, about each player placing an individual brick to build the wall, and how the players understood the concept. I am hopeful. I am not going to put down any money on it but I am optimistic about the game.

This game today will be a real indicator of alot of things. I am not worried about player performance. I am concerned about coaching especially on the defensive side of the ball. Defenses that rely on read and react, and which look at what teams have done in the past, live in history and almost always die from it. But when you have talented players, you create your own identity, you dictate to teams what you are willing to let them do not from what a team did years ago but based upon the strengths and weakness of your defense may be. If you have a weakness, you can fortify it. You are a fool if you ignore it.

The better talented team should win tomorrow, just as it should have won last year. If it doesn't and the reason is defensive ineptitude, in spite of the talent, then we have a real problem in Coral Gables.

Ricky Town went 17 for 22 for 180yds in that game. Sorry forgot to put this in previous post.

Harry Miller

Ricky Town leads leads St. Bonaventure in second half come from behind victory over Redlands East Valley top 15 ranked and top 5 in defense. He did a great job leading his team to victory against a top defence in California. overcame early adversity, kept his composure and made several big throws and made several key runs to keep the drives alive. A great win after a 3hour bus ride! Home town refs were not any help either.

CANES UPSET NO. 6 FLORIDA STATE

Johnson totals 16 kills

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami volleyball team knocked off No. 6 Florida State, 3-1, in front of a national television audience and a record crowd at the Knight Sports Complex on Friday. It was the first-ever win over a top-10 team for the program.

BOX SCORE ATTACHED, FULL RECAP COMING TO HURRICANESPORTS.COM

The Hurricanes have now won 10 straight matches at home and 21 of the last 22.

Junior Alex Johnson, a Tallahassee native, recorded a match-high 16 kills for Miami (7-1, 1-0 ACC), while sophomore Alexis Mourning contributed 14 slammers. Senior setter Nryitha Sundararaman put up 50 assists to pace the offense.

It was the first time that the ESPN family of networks had ever broadcasted a volleyball match in Coral Gables. The attendance was listed a 1,179 – a new Knight Sports Complex record.

The Seminoles dropped to 6-1 and 0-1 in the ACC.

Please 4-Real, I'm as close to a fan on here as you have, well, other than UpNorth who got you on that banner of his.

Hassan, you can find a ticket for $15 including fees here; http://www.stubhub.com/miami-hurricanes-football-tickets/miami-vs-bethune-cookman-9-15-2012-4043268/

I'm thinking it's not going to be a sellout so if you drive down, you can save five to ten of that probably shopping outside the stadium like the CEO advises.

I'll say this about ScallopHead, not only does he know where to find the bivalve mollusk, he was right about the team from what I saw in the BC game, better conditioning and better attitude. Two recruiting classes ago would have packed it in down 14 on the road, one recruiting class ago would have half the team trying to get back and win the game before falling just short due to poor nutrition and training in the off-season while the other half imitated soaring eagles on the sideline or some other dumb crap to entertain themselves instead of caring about the final result.

4-Real

Whaddup UpNorth!! Really appreciate that shout out brother!!! U & Herbie r the illest, 4-realist canesters around. The CEO would never give me a shout-out like that! Hell, even Cocane & Ogv have admitted 2 writing my name on their toilet paper!

"Raize...do not be surprised. Jus sayin."

We've had success nabbing California QB's before. Winning cures all, and UM's program is second to none. If memory serves, his dad was very impressed with UM, the fans, and the entire atmosphere. I'd like to have Town. A lot. He also seems like a head on shoulders person, which is exactly what we need.

Tell the Towns they've got me on their side.

I hope FSU loses by 1,000. It serves them right to play the Unemployed Blockbuster Clerks one week, the Fighting Tito Jacksons the next, and Wake Forest the 3rd. Pathetic.

Briscoe did not play, a few of our guys put on big weight and are playing slower. Aldarius Johnson did this in his career was running a 4.69 and ran a 4.42 at pro day this spring after he got back to his HS weight of 205.... Sometimes too much weight is not a good thing. Robinson is 288 kinda small for a DT but he had some quickness to get off the ball others did not show.

The Dude

I understand where Robinson's family is coming from to a point. We all want to see our family members get more time because we feel like they can do things if only given the chance. But what they have to understand is that they have ZERO say and ZERO leverage with Coach. ZERO! Again ZERO! This isnt an 1st rounder or All-American or some freshman all world player that has eligibility left to go play somewhere else. Robinson compounds it by not practicing? Now you have to be disciplined. Now your kid isnt traveling Mr. Robinson. Smooth move. You probably just cost your kid the chance to even be drafted because lets face it, he was questionable at best before this happened.

ScallopHead

OGVYN, great article.

BC blew Robinson right off the line of scrimmage through most of last Saturdays game. My guess is that we wont miss him on the field.

herbieibis

Hassan,
Did Briscoe even play? I'm talking about the ones that played. Grimble is 6'4 and Pierre is the same but both came in as DE's and didn't get to RS. We need some true bloods. Both Grimble & Pierre have put on close to 35 lbs since they arrived. I'm afraid that might be too much weight to quick and thus making them sluggish at times. To me if a tackle came in weighing 270 by the time he left school he should probably be no more than 310 after 4 years, unless he was a squatty nose-guard at 6'1 340.

UpNorthCane27

That Alabama committ was just on ESPN playing with his highschool team the other day... No bueno young man!!

Hassan

Ok, maybe Porter is more than servicible but to be anything more he has to play. Granted the dude has had some bad luck but he like the rest of his defensive tackle co-stars on the de-line, can't see over the opposing offensive line to find the Qb. Luther might be our tallest DT @ 6'3 but he apparently has Daddy drama. He's had 4 years to figure this college thing out. You can't be a star unless you work at it, unfortunately for him or fortunate for him he has a coach that cares how he plays.

IF this whole Luther robinson and his father crying about the playing time is the reason hes not suiting or traveling with the team, AL shouldnt even think twice about putting up with this sh**!!! What has he done for the past 3 seasons he's been here? Nada, zip, ZERO, so there is no reason for him to be crying about playing time.

On the redshirt issue:

2. A hardship (medical or other) red shirt may be granted if the player did not play in more than 20% of the teams plays or games.

roach, South Carolina/East Carolina for the major upset potential, Duke/Stanford for the same, USF/Nevada because I think USF will be good this year but Nevada can really throw a monkey wrench into their season right away at home. I know those are kind of off the radar but week two isn't so great this year.

OK State/Arizona should end up non-competitive but might put up 100 total points between them when it's over.

It looks like after this weekend the BCC game will really give our young guys a chance to ball out and see who will be redshirted, keep your eye for who plays a lot in the game and who does not because after that game I believe if you play you burn your RS.

RECRUITING UPDATE:

Every kid that puts on the pads hopes to start their varsity career with a bang, but I don’t think St. Bonaventure quarterback Ricky Town could have even imagined making such a big splash in his first two varsity starts.

The 6-4, 190-pound sophomore was nearly perfect in his debut, completing 10-of-11 pass attempts against Garfield, and followed it up with a 346 yard, three touchdown performance against Corona Centennial Friday night.

“It’s cool to think about and everything but I have to give it to my team. They made the plays and I just did my part,” Town said. “The line blocked and gave me time and the receivers caught the ball.”

The 2015 signal-caller played with the poise of a veteran under the bright lights and FOX Sports West TV cameras. “It was awesome. This is the type of games that you live to play,” Town said of the 40-35 win over Corona Centennial. “It was a dream come true to be out here with the crowd and play against such a great team.”

Town has made a seamless transition to being the starting quarterback at one of Southern California’s top programs. “I think it has gone pretty smooth. I’m just trying to lead the team and get wins,” said Town. “It’s exciting to go from JV last year to now being the leader of a big program like this.”

It’s obviously still very early in his high school career, but you can be sure that college coaches will keep an eye on the young quarterback with great size, a good arm, and poise beyond his years. Schools are already showing interest, including a pair from across the country.

“Miami wants to offer me but they just want to see me play some games, same with Boston College,” he said. “I think they are both great schools. I took a trip to both schools this summer and I really liked Miami and their coaches! ”

86Cane

Hassan...I agree with your list above excpet for the following:

WR Lockhart was said to be looking at some PT this year so not sure he will RS although it is a possibility.

I don't think that Terry or Crawford will RS they both will see more PT as the year goes on and both are needed on ST.

I do agree that Kirby will take a medical RS if he misses half the season which seems likely.
