Looks like RLIII had a helluva game:

Where do I begin?

Our opponnents where much bigger & more physical then us. Being honest they kicked our butts all over the field. Here comes the excuses. Our freshman X injured his knee on Wed, diving for a ball in 7on7. That left us with 21. Second play of the game our TB & the second leading rusher in the state of Fl injured his knee. He was done for the night. He also plays DE & was our only DL over 200 lbs. That left us with 20, really 18 players & 2 kickers(homecoming queen & terrible 1). This didn't look very good for us.

We took the openning drive, drove 80 yds & scored. Missed the PAT, 6-0 us. First series we stop them, get the ball back. Our first 2 plays get blown up in the backfield. It felt like they were in our backfield before the snap. My eye in the sky can't see a damn thing, problems with no height & bad angles. I see a hole in there coverage we connect for a 67 yd strike, miss the PAT. Homecoming Queen having a rough time. She was falling away from her kicks, could have been the 250 lb DL running at her. Still 12-0 feeling pretty good.

Their third drive they decide to start playing smash mouth. It was a good call since they were bigger & more physical. Our kids hanging tough but getting beaten up. They drive the length of the field, our UM commit shows why & picks off a pass returning it 83 for a td. Homecoming Queen kicks PAT. 19-0 but not feeling so good. they take the ball on their next drive & cram it down our throats. We call the play for their 2 pt try doesn't matter. 19-8.

Half 19-8, & I realize I can't play the Brazilian at X anymore he's just lost. Ok, I go to a 5'1" 108 freshman. I don't know who he is going to scare, but he at least can line up right. At half time we look triage for a MASH unit. I say all the right things, with feeling & conviction, but I really know what the deal is.

They take their first drive & again smash the ball down our throats. We couldn't have stopped them with baseball bats. 135 lb NG against 255 C, & our kid is trying with everything he has. They score, no contest on the deuce. 19-16. I know we need 1 drive, but I don't have a play to call. Our UM commit takes things into his hands & returns the KO 67 yds to the 10. I call trap hoping to get inside their beasts, he does. Queen kicks the Pat. 26-16. 8 minutes to go in the 3rd. I know the truth it's not enough.

Next drive for them is a hot knife through butter, oh I should mention if they anyone who could catch we would have been toast much earlier. They score again no contest on the deuce 26-24. We still have a whole qtr play & I am out of options & ideas. We get the ball & its an all feast in our backfield. On 3rd & 16, I go empty & throw a fade to UM, he goes up between 2 defenders makes a stella catch we gain 18. We run trap for 6, Zone for 3, QB sneak. I don't know how but we are moving the ball. I run the other freshman he squeeks out 3, zone for 2 more, I try the fade again, 5'1" freshman wide open as everyone is covering UM, wind takes ball *(&%$ hurricane. We turn it over on downs on their 14, 8 minutes to go in the game.

This time our players fight & claw, they are still kicking our butts just slowly. 7 minutes & 10 seconds later they have 4th & goal from the 2. Somehow someway our kids find a way to make the stop. We take 2 knees on the 1, yes I was having canaries, but we held on.

Final 26-24 us, we are now 8-0 & district champs.

Al

When the GSR becomes part of the scoreboard let me know so I can jump from joy. For those who think we can win out, remember there is a difference between believing and hoping. I hope we win, but I believe what happened yesterday is happening now and the same will happen tomorrow. Yes, inconsistent play, bad defense, poor coaching, etc. We have done nothing to change this, so if you expect a different result while you do the same thing over and over, you are literally insane. DS I hope you are reading this. Looks like you don't give a dime for our football program. Time to redistribute the billion $$$$ you just got. The program needs better coaches and a thing with grass in it where you play football...some people call it a Stadium.

orange 'n green in the vein

Why is the cart being put before the horse here?

Try stopping somebody above FCS level first before you start talking about winning even a shat division like the ACC Coast-all. The way Al has this team playing right now not even GT is out of this division race and UM is damn lucky that Duke didn't handle the first 15 minutes of lead in their game against the chicken chokers very well this year.

j.w.

Hassan. I think I've read the sources of this (all seem to have run with papa cane's tweets). Not buying it. Not saying there's no truth that the NOI is coming in Nov, or that we might self-impose again, but the rationale given for why we would do it doesn't make sense. And the ACC pushing us to self impose? Why would they do that, to make sure Duke plays FSU in the title game? Or yet another Va Tech-FSU yawner? That game gets zero ratings points if we're not in it this year, the Coastal sucks and our name is the only thing that will get anyone to tune in. Yes, I get that everyone wants this in the past, but this looks like 5% logic, plus a ton of speculation.

CANES ROLL PAST VIRGINIA TECH

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Avenging an earlier season loss, No. 24 Miami volleyball took down Virginia Tech in three sets on Friday at the Knight Sports Complex. With the sweep, the Canes have now won their last 15 at home and 26 of the last 27 dating back to last season.

LOL at trying to win Thursday to wrap it up, Golden has notoriously collapsed late in the year in the division as a coach so even if by some miracle they play well at home Thursday night enough to win, he's still not out of the woods by a long shot. Try not giving up 425+ yards first before you start getting ready for your closeup Al.

So if Miami takes a ban of the ACCCG, does that mean the Coastal runner-up gets the nod?

IM ALL FOR THE BOWL BAN BUT THE ACC SHIP NO WAY .WE NEED AT LEAST THAT

pbcfrcane13

I would rather ban us from playing in the orange bowl than to face FSU again(hopefully) and ruin there season!!!

Parman -

Do you like the Canes?

Canezitis

Ya think. These gets get so focused on sports and don't think about plan be. I did and my senior year in high school we lost all of our games. Can ya guess how many scouts come to see qb who can't muster his team to one win? Took me years to figure out what to do and finally get my career on track. Ya, they all better have a plan and it better start in high school.

"Emmert noted that ONLY 1.3 percent of men’s basketball student-athletes and 1.6 percent of football student-athletes go on to careers in professional athletics."

BETTER HAVE A PLAN B!

Canezitis

That's because it hasn't been as big of an issue with white student athletes. Sad, but true

WWIN

Pb,

Thanks. Also, does playing your freshmen and sophomores on NCAA 13 boost their ratings or help them in anyway??

orange 'n green in the vein

Are these numbers adjusted to discount the Tar Heel athlete degrees, you know the ones where you don't ever show up to a class that only exits on paper in the mind of a crooked professor stealing tax payer dollars for a pension, plagiarize 11 year old kids to post on a blog and still get that paper?

86Cane

Zilla...just reporting the facts exactly as presented by the NCAA. I have to admit when I read it the first time it did feel a tad awkward though.

pbcfrcane13

Upnorth and Willie good luck to them! The hard part is over

now fr her to get a job! lol.

AND WHITE STUDENT ATHLETES??JUST SAYING THO

Sweet deal, my wife is trying to do the same. I can't wait till she makes it to the league. We gon be rich B*t*h lol

FROM THE NCAA WEB SITE:

“Our academic reforms continue to bear fruit,” said NCAA President Mark Emmert. “We are not satisfied, but we are proud that we have reached another milestone, as now seven of every 10 student-athletes in our highest-profile sports are earning their degrees.”

Emmert noted that only 1.3 percent of men’s basketball student-athletes and 1.6 percent of football student-athletes go on to careers in professional athletics.

Men’s basketball and football traditionally have posted the lowest graduation rates among all sports. But in the 11 years since GSR data have been collected, men’s basketball is up 18 points – and is 21 points higher for African-American males in the sport. FBS football is up 7 points, and African-Americans in football have seen their GSR climb 9 percentage points.

SJM got done with the honeymoon regarding this staff when they got crushed again on national TV and showed absolutely no improvement opting instead for reversion in many areas of the team. I understand why he's frustrated but you haven't seen anything yet if UM allows a completely average to below average Chokie squad to rag-doll it around like they're some kind of standard to look up to. This coaching staff is 0-for rivalry games this year, so if you consider this team a rival, which I gather a lot of you do, it's time to win or else face the consequences. Please, no posting, "why's everyone pissed," if they lose too, you drop games to rivals in college football, fans get pissed, it's basic college football cause and effect.

Remember all world and super fast WR/DB Jeremy Davis from Ft. Myers who is former Hurricane Phillip Buchanon's half brother? He could not qualify at UM and went to Milford Prep for 2 years and wound up at UCF this year. He has not played this season (no stats).

86Cane

Remember QB Jeffrey Goodfrey that Miami was recruiting but never signed? He went to UCF where he started 12 games last year as their #1 QB. However, this year he moved to WR and is no longer a QB in college.

86Cane

Remember RB Kevin Grooms that Miami recruited and signed but he could not qualify academically? He went to Marshall and is currently their leading rusher with 444 yards and a 6.6 ypc average.

Et Tu, S J M PARMAN

Is this really S J M P A R M A N posting in Manny's blog?

If I were a parent of a talented high school player, and I read what happened to Cain, I would advise my kid not to go to UM. There is some type of agenda going on at UM that has nothing to do with football talent. You also have to remember, all of our would be seniors bolted early after being with this coaching staff for a year, and they left alot of money on the table by doing so. Maybe they know alot more than we do about Al Golden and Co methods and the way they treat players.

Finally, Al Golden is a freaking 8-10 against Division 1 talent at Miami. That is pathetic.

Acutally I may need the help myself if we lose!

pbcfr...congrats to you and your wife!

All I can say if that IF the Canes don't beat VT this Thursday there are gonna be several people around here that are going to need some serious medical attention.

And by "serious" I mean life threatening. LOL

Ohio_Cane

Last I checked, Robinson and Cain have each had at least three seasons to prove they deserve a starting job here. They didn't do it with the previous staff. And they obviously haven't done it now against a bunch of freshmen and sophomore.

Golden is a hater? Give me a break.

CANES BEAT NOLES!

She did it again.

Almost a year after advancing the Hurricanes into the second round of the NCAA Tournament with a game-winning overtime goal, sophomore forward Ashley Flinn connected in the 89th minute to send Miami past No. 1 Florida State and into the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship.

Her confident finish in the game's final stages, which came on a perfect through ball played by Tara Schwitter, clinched the Hurricanes' first Championship berth since 2008. Miami (9-6-3, 4-4-2 ACC), which could only advance to the eight-team tournament with a win over the first-ranked Seminoles (15-2-0, 8-2-0 ACC), used Flinn's third goal of the year to earn their first win over Florida State since joining the ACC in 2004.

"The kids were fabulous," head coach Tom Anagnost said. "They executed it exactly as they're supposed to. The effort was extraordinary. I'm as proud as I have been since I've been here."

BigWindyCane1

Thats because we all were buying into the treding up of Shannons team, 5-7, 7-6, 9-4, and than BOOM!!! AH!!

Now lets see if we can trust in the Golden progression

Posted by: pbcfrcane13 | October 25, 2012 at 06:01 PM

We may learn more about Golden's progress sooner rather than later. The last four games of the season, beginning with Virginia Tech, could speed up that trajectory. The Canes should go 3-1 or 4-0 (which is very doable), and that will be a strong finish to a rocky season.

The Virginia Tech game may be the most important game of Golden's tenure if he can win. A loss would put the Canes back into the ACC pack and would not tell us much about which direction the program is headed.

A win, however, will create incredible momentum and probably decide the winner of the Coastal Division. It could thrust the Canes toward a place in the ACC Championship geme in Golden's second year, something Shannon and Coker failed to do.

An ACC Championship game would create more buzz around the program, attract more recruits and give the current underclassmen more confidence heading into next year.

I think Golden and his staff can do it.
