TAMU is exposing the hell out of Bama's LBs and secondary. Not really a surprise, but WOW!

trianglecane

I could be wrong, but I believe our mike had a hard time getting depth.. but that is just watching tv coverage..

CGNC

Well, I knew this game could be a problem. I am with OGV 38-40 points is enough to win a game. Does the defense have problems - yes. Were they made worse by the three players they were missing - I think yes.

trianglecane

i do believe in the process tho.. I will continue to wear my orange and green hoodie, and have people look at me side ways..GO CANES!!!

If Miami keeps playing like this, ABC Liquor is going to add me to there mailing list and send me a "Thank You" card for the purchases I have been making.

LMAO. Hell, they're going to have to pay for my liver transplant.

trianglecane

man this one hurt. the canes looked like they did against boston in some aspects. not having dp, ej really hurt, rs did also. i hope those players that were suspended understand how their actions don't just affect them. cant be selfish and win ships.

We'll see what we've got left, but have to figure our goal is be bowl elidigeble so we can take the self imposed ban.

I concur. Our goal is to be bowl edible so we can take the self imposed ban.

Jack

Damn it! Win out!!

nemo2002

Honestly, Al, It is terribly painful sometimes to watch the way your team plays and loses. Man up and fire D'No before the top brass at UM send you packing. Also, for heaven's sake STOP wearing the tie on game day. It don't look so good when you're losing! Besides, the bloggers are all making a mockery of your tie; and, frankly son, you're embarrassing me.

At a loss for words lets win the last two games finish 7-5 and see what happens.

Like the NC games this is one we should have been able to win. Good teams find a way to pull these out. I can understand losses to ND, FSU and KS, top ranked teams that we're not ready for. No excuse for make Rocco look like Tom Brady.

Now we're down to two games, USF has a losing record, Duke is above .500.

We'll see what we've got left, but have to figure our goal is be bowl elidigeble so we can take the self imposed ban.

mi@mic@ne

Al is very close to getting to the next level. We got some big boys on the dline with everyone coming back.. we just need a coach like kehoe from our past on the d.

mi@mic@ne

There is no way that Virginia should have been close to us... they couldnt block our d line even with the young backs and lbs ... everyone knew they had to throw...theres no excuse...

On a different note, check out my son making a half-court shot!

NO ONE IS GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED IF WE DON'T GO TO A BOWL GAME THIS YEAR except, perhaps, the QB on the team we would have played.

TonyCane

It pains me to say this...but the defense was better under Shannon's regime. And under Coker, even in the wanning-get-outrecruited by Syracuse days-the defense was better still.

herbieibis

The Herb didn't get a chance to watch the game and when you aren't a top 25 team don't count on them to show your score on espn. I don't know why everyone is so surprised by the outcome, when you are young and lacking in certain areas, your weakness shows. Now we can stop all this hubbub about playing in the ACC ship game. We don't have the talent amazed yet to play in any bowl and yes especially on team DENO's wonderless defense. This defense reminds me of '85. They even said on T.V. Bama of all teams doesn't have a dominant Delinemen, well welcome to our world. Just get to 6 wins, and I'll be happy. What we really need to do is go to a 4-3 defense and on offense go to the spread option and forget the pro-style because we don't have the personel to run it. If Rocco throws for what ever he did today and he sux, just imagine what a Matt Barkley would throw for, with his receivers. Once again a mediocre QB torches us, as usual. That's our M.O. you play us to make your QB feel better.

Canesteeler

Same old shit! The D is horrible and the O can't finish. Is Shannon still the head coach?

They should ask Butch or Jimmy for an honest assessment of the progress of our d coaches. It took Jimmy one season to get rid of Olivadati.

"Hiring a mutant from Philly to coach defense in a BCS league because of what he did in the MAC against teams that finished under .500 in conference play."

No really, that's what it says.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | November 10, 2012 at 04:24 PM

That is certainly one definition!
I don’t think any one disagrees that our deficiencies (and there are many) on defense will need to be addressed at the end of the season. My frustration with the Offense is that they are our strength, but in key situations they are not coming through! I thought the 3rd quarter was probably our best quarter all year with the D making stops and the O milking the clock and controlling the flow of the game.

Al is defending someone who is not even close to the standard of all those coaches he brags about that gave us 5 rings with another one porterstolen from us..we are not fooled when we see a bad coach

Felipe.

Haha yeah, bloggers do a better job defending Oh No!Frio than his defensive does on game day. It's truly sad.

BigWindy, I'm partially tempted to say let's defend the defensive coaches with the same skill that they employed with our players today.

Duke had a great game. There is one word to describe him, and that is "special." He may have a chance at Portis's freshman rushing record. Barring injury, the Canes may only have Duke for two more seasons, so we better start winning soon.

I cannot defend the defensive coaches, especially Dno. Virgina ran the same plays, and D'No simply could not stop them. They are the worst defense in the ACC by far. I could criticize the defensive players, but there are too many to name.

The offense has to score 40 points for the Canes to have a chance. The Canes need to stop worrying about a bowl-ban that the Canes are not eligible for.

WWIN

was it two 3 and outs in a row to finish the game for the offense?????

j.w.

OGV- partially disagree with you on Fisch. The O was helped, a lot, by special teams, and Duke's greatness. Then they get stuffed twice in a row, in UVA territory, against that defense, with the game on the line? Sorry, but he deserves criticism. You have to know you're going to face 8-9 man fronts, everyone else did, yet we had no answer on six plays. If you want to be a bad-ass OC, you earn it in crunch time, and he didn't.
And that's not to excuse D'Onofrio. Why you don't just blitz on 2nd down with 11 seconds, is beyond me. ANyone watching this defense for a quarter knows they aren't likely to stop anyone if they can't rush the passer.

mi@mic@ne

Our angles on pass d are awful.. we chased the ball all game long.. we couldnt cover three guys on pass patterns all day long

Nomad

Today’s game was not about all of a sudden having a great defense. We know the body of work the defense has done over the season and they were missing 3 starters – not sure why anyone expected the defense to all of sudden be lights out better.
Today’s game was about becoming bowl eligible and the defense came through in the third quarter, but we all knew it was just a matter of time.
Today was about having a 3 points lead and the ball and going 3 and out. Today was about having a 5 points lead and going 3 and out again. Our strength failed to get a first down and bleed the clock and left it up to our reliable defense to make the stop. Really – what is the definition of insanity?

j.w.

I hope Eddie johnson feels bad... Since he was suspended for the game. Maybe they win if he plays. You gotta love selfish players who get suspended and in the end hurt not only hurt themselves but their teammates as well.

Posted by: MIA Chi 'Cane '98 | November 10, 2012 at 03:50 PM
No kidding, I don't care if he has 30 tackles in either of the next two games, he showed us what he was all about today.

TonyCane

We need to somehow launch a mission to UNC, steal the C. Barth cloning tech, and start to work at creating an army of Duke Johnson clones. Best of all, I think that under current NCAA rules Duke and his clones would only qualify as holding one scholarship.

mi@mic@ne

Virginia had one of the lowest scoring offenses in college football until they played the U. We are worse than a division 2 d.

The Brown Recluse

Gunther is a beast, and should be on the field 100% of the time! Can Duke play defense? Fisch needs to use more RUNNING BACK screens instead of wide receiver screens. Duke Johnson runs like Chuck Norris is chasing him, and he is the only reason the game was even close.

mi@mic@ne

d no is handicapping our team... we make them one dimensional..they keep more people in to block on passing and still beat us... we cant win with this guy.

nemo2002

Hey Al, what's happening with that culture thing you've been working on?

Posted by: nemo2002 | November 10, 2012 at 04:04 PM


Right now it's more of a culture of incompetence, at least defensively.

Posted by: TonyCane | November 10, 2012 at 04:07 PM


Truer words have ne'er been spoken.
FEAR THE LIE!

Al

The hole defensive coaching staff sucks. Even Barrow. Our LB's suck. He is a good recruiter, but a horrible coach. The rest should be on the way out.

The Brown Recluse

ACC talk is ridiculous because...
-Canes won't qualify for it. Will lose to Duke.
-Would get destroyed.
-It's a post season game. (Need to self-impose)

WWIN


How many bloggers will go to the laughable reach of, "Fisch blew it with his play calling," when he put 38 points up and totaled 40 by having his guys get Virginia pinned deep enough for even D'No's feeble mind to sucker them into a safety for point 40?

I count two so far. If the team totals 40 points on the road, they should win the game, unless your defensive scheme is so bad that you give up 41. Same deal with just 38 guys.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | November 10, 2012 at 03:39 PM

Me. The D gets you a safety(whether it was actually a safety or not) and you get the ball back at their 40 with 4mins to go knowing that the D is strugglin and wit out their 3 best players, YOU HAVE TO PUT THE GAME AWAY. But what did the Offense do,run it on 3RD AND 6!!!!

What would the ravens D be without Lewis, Reed, and Suggs?????????? Oh that's what I thought

We need Butch. Sanctions or no sanctions, he will bring this team back. He did it once, he can do it again.

How is ACCCG talk ridiculous? All UM needs to do is still beat Duke.

In football. Not even Larry Coker with a FIU brawl depleted team and Turf Face making the decisions failed to do that. D'No can't be even worse than having that combination, can he?

(Just note, Cutcliffe is licking his chops at slicing this zone up.)

raize, you've got not one, but TWO QB's having career days, UVA ain't 'settling' for sh!t at that point in the game, they're going down swinging while completing OVER 90% OF THEIR PASSES!

Actually, this is all Tracy Howard's fault, he didn't sit there quietly earlier this year while the mutant from Philly berated him for not doing exactly what he was told for the worst UM defense is history, if he had just bit his tongue the rest of the defensive players would have plenty of confidence in this bullsh!t scheme.

Reactions after the Miami/UV game:

Baylor Defensive Coach Phil Bennett- "That was a disgrace!"

UT Defensive Coach Manny Diaz - "Unbelievable"

Former Miami Dolphins DC Tom Olivadotti (circa 1995 Bills playoff game) - "Horrendous"

Colonel in charge of the Death Star's perimeter trench defense systems (circa approach to Yavin) - "I just don't understand him!"

Al

Golden, the coach whose record doesn't matter. We will have to live with it.

The Brown Recluse

3-6 Virginia played more like a 9-0 team today. Without Duke, the score would not even be close. Miami makes ALL quarterbacks look Heisman worthy. Collin Klein should personally invite the Canes defense to the Heisman ceremony. People...we learned nothing new today. Cane Nation got all caught up in ridiculous ACC championship game talk, which was just plain silly.

I have one word to the describe today's defensive effort...clumsy. The talent is there, but clearly No'D is not a very good teacher. We as Canes like Golden because he looks and acts like a throwback to coaches of yesteryear. But when do we stop calling for No'D's job...and start screaming for Golden's?

nemo2002

Fear the tie?


Why?

panamacitycane

I do not blame the players on defense for this..they are young and do not know what to do..this is all on the coaches....if it wasnt for duke we lose 41- 21 I mean really this was a bad bad bad virginia team. We made two bad qbs look like heisman contenders.. fukk u if you make an excuse for this..nothing to blame on offense..they did what they could and scored

Dude on a Pale Horse

Seriously, D'Onofrio is probably the wort coordinator in The U's history. He will find ways to blow games. Donna, take trhe decission out of Golden's hands and fire that piece of crap coaching down the defense.

Felipe

You know a defense is ran by a clueless neanderthal when:

Being pushed further back on 3rd down begets a better shot at converting, and
Having to score a TD rather than field goal increases the probability of the win, seemingly.

That's just bad.

Dude on a Pale Horse

D'Onofrio, you suck. You suck on an epic level. No wonder none of these top defensive recruits want to come play for you. I wouldnt either. Oh yeah, you suck. Fire D'Onofrio now!

raizecane

BTW - UV got screwed on that saftey call. Had the right call been made, maybe UV settles for a FG and leaves us enough time on the clock to do something.....

Things that make you go Hmmmmmmmm .......

Al

D'no, do you get thank you cards from other teams after each game? I just can't believe you are so bad.

Dude on a Pale Horse

OGV,

The offense isnt great either. Sometimes Fisch's play calls are like WTF? But you are right. D'Onofrio makes it seem like no matter how much we score he is going to try to lose the game for us. He IS the worst excuse for a defensive coordinator in the country if not the world. He should seriously consider changing his profession to something else. Fir D'Onofrio now!

TonyCane

Typo...314 points given up om 2008, not 1998.

nemo2002

BOTTOM LINE: We lost 4 of our last 5 games.

I hope the hell we can find a way to WIN one of our remaining games, so at least we can salvage SOMETHING from this season (a self-imposed postseason bowl ban, PLEASE).

Coastal Division records against Miami since 2006:

Virginia: 5-2
VA Tech: 5-2
UNC: 4-3
Ga Tech: 3-4
Duke: 0-6

Why, or why do we so consistently have problems with the Cavaliers?

Account Deleted

lets all be honest, we're a .500 team not ready for prime time. Lots of reasons why.

Morris and the O did their best, put 38 on the board, could have had 7 more, and got a bad call safety to help out.

On the other side, well giving up 42 will buy you alot of "L's" on your schedule

Next up, another team with a losing record...should be a close one

thirstybuzzardcane

Hire Butch Davis!!!!

Nomad

The offense needed to burn some time off during their last two possessions and could not get a first down!

Felipe

And here I was lamenting that 62-51 stroker Oregon and USC played. Both would drop 84+ on us with this defense. 13" verticals for Highsmith and Rodgers, a scheme made for middle school ball, jeez.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I have been saying this team should play in the ACCCG if they are the Coastal Champ, but now I am thinking no deserves it. Just let Clemson and FSU play. Miami is a JOKE defensively. D'Onofrio is pathetic. I am happy he doesnt care what we think because I can't stand him. His defenses are responsible for making Canes fans everywhere ill. Fire D'Onofrio now!

orange 'n green in the vein

Hey at least USF tickets will cost a quarter less in a few days, maybe I'll spend money watching a game for nothing featuring one team at .500 and another with virtually no chance at it to see UM's new DL and LB coach?

Oh wait, Al's buddy would have to be let go for that to work out in the long run, NEVERMIND!

SinisterCane

AL the only person you should be mad at is No "D" and yourself, if you have spend time making adjustments or working with the defense all week then why is No D here?

dacanes

D lineman just standing around. wtf . This d cord. needs to pack his bags.Enough is enough

wartown canes

That was the most disappointing loss of the year. They had the game. Those 2 drives that started at midfield were awful, no flow, no idea on how to salt the game away. We are bad and before everyone goes crazy im not mentioning the d because it is so bad why bring it up.

BigWindyCane1

Duke came to play. He deserves a better effort from our D.

The D simply let the Canes down. I can no longer hold back my criticsm of D'No

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

and why is evey pass in college football either pass interference or holding???

CoCane

I just don't understand why they didn't try to move the ball on the last offensive possession knowing the d can't stop shit! The entire staff blew this game. I'm now convinced Golden ain't the man for the job. Enjoy the mediocrity. FUKK EVERYONE THAT RUNS THIS FOOTBALL PROGRAM!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

Florida ready to tie up game....ball on the 2 yard line

j.w.

Of course it's highsmith and Paul getting burned for the damn game winning f'ing touchdown. Give me two bowl bans. Ridiculously stupid play calling the absolute f'ing worst collection of talent in the history of Miami football and the most putrid referees in any level of football. So pissed that I waited yet another year watching this crap.

dacanes

I have no words.

thirstybuzzardcane

So much for that

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

ENOUGH ACCCG Talk... Get one more win, get bowl eligible and take your punishment!

Disgusting...

thirstybuzzardcane

The only thing that would ease this pain is a gator loss

Dude on a Pale Horse

I for one am done. Someone let me know when they fire this pathetic excuse for a defensive coordinator. Its a f*cking joke and is flatly not acceptable anylonger. If Golden wont do it, the Shalala needs to. This has to end. D'Onofrio can't coach at this level. Fire him now.
