I'll go better. Just woke up from a dream minutes ago. Literally. Here's what happened:

With a little over a minute to go in the game FSU was leading Miami 20-7.

EJ Manuel is chased by a UM defender and throws an interception which is returned for a touchdown. FSU 20 Miami 14

The Hurricanes kick an onside which is recovered.

With under 30 seconds to go Miami has gotten to the FSU thirty yard line. The ball is snapped and Ryan Williams (I think) is chased by multiple defenders and finally hits a receiver who scampers down but is tackled just short of the Seminoles goal line.

23 seconds to go. Time out.

Miami comes to the line. FSU is in full goal line defense. Williams hands it off to Duke Johnson, who fakes a dive into the end zone. The FSU defenders jump vertically to stop him. He waits a second, fakes a jump again, then scampers sideways and lofts a halfback pass to a receiver in the endzone.

Touchdown.

FSU 20 Miami 21.

See you Canespacers at Sun Life. Let's go Canes beat FSU Miami 35 FSU 34.

Florida State after 7 games since 1994:

Year: Record PF PA
1994: 6-1, 276-123
1995: 7-0, 393-123
1996: 7-0, 256-70
1997: 7-0, 282-90
1998: 6-1, 220-85
1999: 7-0, 281-117
2000: 6-1, 295-86
2001: 5-2, 263-172
2002: 6-1, 264-156
2003: 6-1, 222-73
2004: 6-1, 196-94
2005: 6-1, 255-122
2006: 4-3, 202-133
2007: 4-3, 166-139
2008: 6-1, 254-116
2009: 4-3, 209-196
2010: 6-1, 244-113
2011: 4-3, 251-135
2012: 6-1, 322-81

In terms of overall points scored, this is the best FSU offense since 1995, and the best defense since 2003.

Looking at the numbers above, it is amazing to see:
- How many strong starts did not end up in a national championship.
- How many potential 7-0 starts were ruined by Miami
- How absurdly weak their out of conference was, as indicated by their points allowed.


Miami Hurricanes after 7 games since 1994:

Year: Record PF PA
1994: 6-1, 243-80
1995: 4-3, 190-137
1996: 5-2, 192-85
1997: 3-4, 193-192
1998: 5-2, 260-147
1999: 4-3, 206-148
2000: 6-1, 315-136
2001: 7-0, 307-65 (NC)
2002: 7-0, 302-124 (NC*)
2003: 7-0, 253-107
2004: 6-1, 243-130
2005: 6-1, 213-97
2006: 5-2, 164-89
2007: 4-3, 166-144
2008: 4-3, 228-170
2009: 5-2, 211-165
2010: 5-2, 209-127
2011: 4-3, 206-150
2012: 4-3, 196-226

Out of conference for FSU, excluding UF and Miami:

1994: Notre Dame
1995: Central Florida (I-AA)
1996: Southern Mississippi
1997: USC
1998: Texas A&M, USC
1999: Louisiana-Tech
2000: BYU, Louisville
2001: Alabama-Birmingham
2002: Iowa State, Louisville, Notre Dame
2003: Notre Dame
2004: Alabama-Birmingham, Syracuse
2005: Citadel (1-AA), Boston College, Syracuse
2006: Boston College, Rice, Troy
2007: Alabama, Alabama-Birmingham, Colorado
2008: Tennessee-Chattanooga(1-AA), Western Carolina(1-AA), Colorado
2009: BYU, Jacksonville State (1-AA), USF
2010: Samford (1-AA), BYU, Oklahoma
2011: Charleston (1-AA), Louisiana-Monroe, Oklahoma

I'll take back the point about their out of conference being absurdly weak, but they have scheduled a lot of 1-AA schools in recent years.

Let's Go Canes!

If we can get on top, and get in EJManuel's face, I think we can fluster them enough to pull an NCState type of upset.

Hasn't been mentioned much, but our inability to stop anyone's offense on 1st down is to ME a HUGE problem. We have ENOUGH problems stopping 3rd and 4th plays from opposing offenses, but our inability to force ANYONE into a 2nd and long situation is just ridiculous...

If we don't fix this, it will be a VERY long night.

TonyCane

Now here's an absurdly weak out of conference schedule:

Texas (since Mack Brown took over)
1998: New Mexico State, Rice, UCLA
1999: NC State, Rice, Rutgers, Stanford
2000: Houston, Louisiana-Lafayette, Stanford
2001: New Mexico State, Houston, UNC
2002: Houston, N Texas, Tulane, UNC
2003: Arkansas, Rice, N Mexico St, Tulane
2004: Arkansas, N Texas, Rice
2005: Louisiana-Lafayette, Ohio State, Rice
2006: N Texas, Ohio State, Rice
2007: Arkansas St, C Florida, Rice, TCU
2008: Arkansas, FAU, Rice, UTEP
2009: Louisiana-Lafayette, UCF, UTEP, Wyoming
2010: FAU, Rice, UCLA, Wyoming
2011: BYU, Rice, UCLA
2012: New Mexico, Ole Miss, Wyoming

Only three times between 2000 and 2012 (Ohio State in 2005 & 2006, Arkansas in 2003) did Texas face a team that was ranked in the Top 25!

Roachcane77, let's hope my dream from a few hours ago comes true.

roachcane77

I'm with you TonyCane... the Duke can handle this!

raizecane

GO CANES, BEAT FSU!!!

HONORARY CAPTAIN
Saturday's honorary captain is former Hurricanes DE and Pro Football Hall of Famer Ted Hendricks, who will be recognized as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference's Class of 2012 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game Legends. Hendricks, known as the "Mad Stork" for his tall (6-7), angular build and his dominating defensive play, started three seasons at defensive end for the Miami Hurricanes under coach Charlie Tate. A three-time All-America for the Hurricanes, he earned consensus, first-team All-America honors in 1967 and 1968, and led Miami to a 20-11-1 record. He ended his collegiate career as Miami's all-time leading tackler with 318 hits in 1968. That year, he was named UPI National Lineman of the Year and finished 5th in the Heisman Trophy balloting.

He went on to a spectacular 15-year NFL career as an outside linebacker playing in 215 consecutive games with the Baltimore Colts, Green Bay Packers, Oakland and L.A Raiders. During his time in the NFL, he helped lead his teams to four Super Bowl championships, was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, four times selected as an All-Pro and five times named second-team All-Pro. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1987 and was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990. He was named to the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time team and to the NFL's All-Decade team of the 1970s. He was inducted into the University of Miami Hall of Fame in 1980, to its Ring of Honor in 1997 and had his jersey number - number 89 - retired, also in 1997.

You know it my brotha......THX

USAFCane

Hate to say it

17-10 FSU half

38-17 FSU final

VT on the horizon, it is the bigger game. FSU/ND exposed this team against stronger teams. I have zero expectations, the only thread of hope, NCST beat the noles we beat NCST.

Stadium short of sell out, at least half FSU fans, that nauseating war chant, I wish we could sut them up!

jiggafras

Every good team we faced, we get walloped. We will be lucky to score 14. Penalties and mistakes is all i see here. Am sorry, not a doomer and this team is young but i based this off what we did against ND and K St. When was the last time Miami played above expectations and just came out and surprised everyone?....its been a long time. We lose to who we supposed to lose to and lose to some who we aren't supposed to lose to also. Can we change that today? I need more rum

orange 'n green in the vein

Why would Scarface let a homeless dude throw all these picks as his QB no matter how tall and heavy he is?

The turkey special teams have sucked too today. Slightly better than Bill Dooley doesn't buy you as much as it used to anymore apparently.

Jramos

If the canes platy with heart!! That's all I can ask for...Go Canes

NativeCane

A two (2) drink limit per person, per transaction will be applied at all concessions except for NativeCane who has been known to score no fewer than four beers at a time.

Hey SOUP,been on the wagon since the party on the patio, gonna dry out til after the election, first of the year, or the rest of my life. LOL
Getting smashed at the game was all part of my Master Plan. ha

Go Canes!!!

If you were smashed I never noticed.

Old Skool

And to think school athletic departments get upset when someone writes a disparaging headline.

Dynamo Moscow have vowed to crack down on the fans who shot players with paintball guns during a training session in protest at the side's worst-ever start to the season.

A group of fans dressed in camouflage gear arrived at the club's training ground on Friday and unleashed a barrage of paintballs at the players and club staff. T

panamacitycane

Papacane said on twitter ray lewis is supposed to talk to thw team before the game..not sure if it will make a difference but he can light them up and get them pumped atleast

4-Real

To all u Golden rod munchers.....Temple got destroyed by Rutgers!!!! No more talk about Temple

Zakkee

I have a question for the Spacers.

Would you all give up alcoholic beverages for life if the Miami Hurricanes were promised to go undefeated and win a National Championship next season?

4-Real

Only one championship Zakee???

Zakkee

Yes lol

Zakkee

Not to say that we never win another again, but just that next year would be a promised chip. Championships usually set up boosts in recruiting, performance etc..we'd benefit from all that in this hypothetical scenario but only next season would be promised.

Zakkee

It is so difficult to watch OSU, UF and ND games!

The refs of these teams games have no integrity. Especially Notre Dame and Ohio State U.

mi@mic@ne

I cant get in here on typepad for some reason

mi@mic@ne

Looking forward to seeing how Ryan plays. Hes got better vision than Steven so it should be an advantage for him in big games.

4-Real

Did u c the buckeye pulling Purdue's tight end jersey on the last play of the game Zakee? Pitiful

vegascane

Exactly 4-Real, Golden doesn't coach at Temple anymore...why would he receive any credit, good, bad or indifferent for how they play now?

Zakkee

Yea i saw it and they had the nerve to call that BS pass interference to put OSU on the one yard line, setting up their score before regulation.

Its just sickening for this to take place every Saturday between September and December, every year and no one says anything or does anything about it.

WWIN

Purdue sucks!!!!!!!!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

The real crime was not having replay overturn the OSU tying TD in regulation for hitting the ground which was clearly visible. Why even have replay now if you're not going to use it to get the call correct because the home team's fans are @$$holes?

NativeCane

If you were smashed I never noticed.

Yeah I wonder why,Cougarmeister!

Go Canes!!!

Zakkee

Robert Marve MUST be horrible at QB for him not to start over Purdue's QB who is awful! An average QB would have beaten OSU today.

NativeCane


I have a question for the Spacers.

Would you all give up alcoholic beverages for life if the Miami Hurricanes were promised to go undefeated and win a National Championship next season?

Posted by: Zakkee | October 20, 2012 at 03:29 PM

Yeah, if they'll give me a Waterford Crystal football for my contribution!

Go Canes!!!

NativeCane

Zakkee It would be alot easier if you changed just two words.

Would you all give up alcoholic beverages at Sun Life if the Miami Hurricanes were promised to go undefeated and win a National Championship next season?

Go Canes!!!

WWIN

OGV,

You never did answer my question the other day??

jiggafras

Ill give up the alcohol, the w@@d tho.....

Gin & Tonic

I have a question for the Spacers.

Would you all give up alcoholic beverages for life if the Miami Hurricanes were promised to go undefeated and win a National Championship next season?

Would you give the canes for life if you were guaranteed free top shelf drinks next year.?

CaneRock

Win or lose, I feel good about tonight. As to my previous question, I think our O-Line, is better than FSU's D-Line.

4-Real

Vegas, had Temple won everyone would be bragging bout how great Golden is cause temple is winning with his players. Truth is his temple kids sukk!!! Why you think Olsen Pierre was the only temple recruit he gave a Miami scholly 2? What happened 2 the other 20 sumthin kids he offered at temple b4 he left?? But enuff about Golden, its all about our Canes!!! I can feel it coming in the air 2nite.......

Zakkee

Lol Native! I'm sure that'll work better for many.

Gin & Tonic--give the Canes what? give up the Canes for top shelf drinks?

Hell no.

Zakkee

Canerock, I think we have the advantage against their d-line win run blocking, but they have the advantage against our pass blocking.

LaQuinton

Zakke.. Marve is out... Acl tear again

WWIN

Temple was winning at half time 10-0. So that means adjustments were made at the half by the COACHES and Golden didn't coach em the 2nd half. Plus I'm sure the #15 team in the country has more depth than temple to pull away in the second half.
