One of the very few things Phil Fulmer every got absolutely right, "They remember what you do in November." Miami's been on the cusp of an ACC title before but never with this easy of a track to it.it'll be interesting to see how the staff plays their players these next two games considering how the finale is all that really matters in the grand scheme.

Terrance Sullivan

Very good article 86.

Terrance Sullivan

Great point OGV

And to go back to an earlier post, va tech had slightly fewer 5 star and 4 star players than did Miami! Talent kills!

Montreal-Cane

"There is a good chance that they could finish at 8-4 and ready to do some serious damage next year."

After all this is what we both predicted way before the season started 86.

Let's go Canes!!!

To all Miami fans Sunlife stadium should be full vs USF...

We have the biggest attraction in town: DUKE JOHNSON. Just this outstanding player is worth much more than the price of admission.

Q: Did the Heat get the order from MLB to throw the game to the Knicks to make NYC feel better about themsleves after the disaster?

The Heat lost by 20. Lets see what happens next time these two teams play.

86Cane

Monty...U should have been there in the stadium with the other 12K fans yelling:

DUKE!!!

Trust me, there were not many fans, but there were some LOUD fans there! We (OGV) started yelling and then I joined in and then the people around us did and it was INCREDIBLE.

The guys in front of us at the 50 yard line upper deck were getting into it and yelling as loud as we were. When they did things started turning Miami's way.

They were completely FREAKED out and saying: "We did that! We did that!!!"

Montreal-Cane

Good stuff 86!

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA is putting a restriction on athletes who want to play immediately after changing schools to be closer to an ailing or injured family member.

The NCAA said Friday that the athlete must choose a new school within 100 miles of the family member if they want to play right away. Otherwise, they will need to sit out a year as usual.

The NCAA said it was making the changes amid concerns that waiver decisions were not consistent from case to case.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami has the inside track to the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division title and the program's first berth in the league's championship game, where a spot in the Orange Bowl would be at stake.

Thing is, it's unclear if the Hurricanes would even accept such a prize.

Being atop the Coastal Division this late in the season is both thrilling and thorny for Miami, which is expected to soon decide whether to self-impose a postseason ban for the second straight year, a move that would be related to the ongoing NCAA investigation into the Hurricanes' compliance practices.

Such a decision would be an attempt to lessen the impact of whatever sanctions ultimately get imposed against Miami. Those sanctions are likely to be handed down early next year, based on the expectation that the Hurricanes will receive their notice of allegations - in essence, the end of the investigation phase and start of the penalty phase - from the NCAA in the next few weeks.

"You have to be very careful and think through all the ramifications," acting Miami athletic director Blake James told The Associated Press on Friday.

The NCAA has long taken into account when schools self-impose penalties prior to any hearings before the committee on infractions.

"The committee then will determine if it will adopt those as appropriate and whether any additional consequences are warranted," NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said...

If this staff..and by staff I mean shalala, cares any about this team they can not deny these kids a chance at the acc championship. I guarantee you any other school would play and take their chances with the NCAA. They do this because of the potential of a championship and revenue and recruiting over the next couple years. I wish we would become a football school and I kmow that wont happen but atleast get an AD that wants the team to be a national power again

WWIN

Panamacity,

So you would rather risk our future by playing this year???

Hard sanctions could set us back another 10yrs. We'll have plenty of opportunities to win the acc in the future. Don't worry about recruits, if we make it to the acccg and decline it recruits will know that we made it. Just like people will always know that Reggie bush won the heisman even tho they stripped him of it later. This is what Golden gets to tell recruits, "we had a chance to win the acccg had we not declined it". Which sounds good.

Playing this year would be a slap in the face to the NCAA

nemo2002

I could be wrong but I think, financially, all the ACC schools share more or less equally in postseason bowl revenue whether or not they even play in a bowl game. (Same deal with postseason basketball games, I believe). This is a big reason why Sha-La-La wanted the U to join the ACC: a predictable revenue stream without the need to maintain a top 10 football ranking, each and every year - meaning that the U could downgrade the football program without any significant loss of postseason bowl game revenue over the long run. (Besides, even a weakened football program, top administrators may have thought, should be able to compete successfully for a top bowl bearth, given the general level of competition in tha ACC). In sum, from the administration's perspective, joining the ACC meant that the U could afford to de-emphasize football. Moreover, any downgrade in the football program would be offset by the upgrade in the basketball program from the new ACC affiliation.

Although ACC schools that travel to their bowl games get some travel expense money too, in recent years when UM went to one of those crappy, out-of-state, minor bowl games the travel expense for the team exceeded the ACC travel supplement, so the athletics department actually lost money by playing the game. From the admintration's perspective, who needs that?

Here's my point. UNLESS The Donna believes that the football team will beat FSU in the ACC championship game AND as such it will play in the Orange Bowl (which would be a treat for players, fans, and an attractive game for local recruits too - with minimal travel expense for the team), I wouldn't be surprised if the U self-imposes another postseason bowl ban. Financially, it kinda makes sense - especially at a time when football related revenue is probably down (from lackluster home game attendance) and football related expenses (from the ongoing Shapirogate investigation) continue to mount.

Moreover, with prospects looking better for NEXT year's team, we might as well forego participation in a lesser bowl game this year for the opportunity to maybe play in the Orange Bowl next year.

One more point. Not to be a naysayer, but this team is not going to be ranked anywhere close to the top 25, even if we win the ACC Coastal. (Let's face facts. Competition in this division sucks! And in truth we're not a very good team - not yet anyway.) Do we really want to end the season losing (again) to FSU in the ACC championship game, and then losing (again) in a nonBCS bowl game? Better that we END the 2012 season on a HIGH note . . . with our first ever ACC Coastal title . . . with even higher expectations (and hopefully lower NCAA sanctions) next year.

Montreal -

Sorry bro Lebron James and Dewayne Wade are the biggest attraction in town! That said I will make the 3 hour drive down to the last game IF we beat Virginia. It is what it is...

Jack

Guys -

All the NCAA talk com on! Nobody got a house, car ect. $7,800 dollars is what the improper benefits amounted to. Players were suspended and missed their bowl. UNC, UCF and Ohio state got one bowl ban. it's time for UM to give some schlarships and that's it, don't listen to the hype!!. Enough said....

UM did not cover up the RAPE of children from the president down!. Shit that only got a 4 year bowl ban!!

CGNC

My $0.02 on the bowl ban - I say play in the ACC Champ game if we make it (we should) - and take the bowl ban because I do not think our chances of beating FSU this year are that good. They are further developed than we are so we would be giving up a lesser bowl.

Terrance Sullivan

Play in the ACCCG and Bowl Game and let the NCAA do whatever they gonna do. Anyway lets go Canes beat UVA.

MassivCane

Here is my take on the bowl ban. When we become bowl eligible (6 wins) and if we make it to the ACCCG, would that give us 2 bowls this year. Does the NCAA consider the ACCCG an actual bowl game in terms of classification. My point is could we ban ourselves from the ACCCG and still play in a bigger bowl game? I would think monetarily that we would forgo the ACCCG and go the larger bowl based on money alone. Another option would be to go to the ACCCG and pass up on the larger bowl in terms of NCAA punishment. Regardless if you were to tell me that we could possibly end the season at 8-4 with all this youth is a very large accomplishment for Al and his staff. This offseason is going to unreal in regards to the conditioning and 5th quarter. I can hear that Michael Irvin speech now!

Good post.

Ohio_Cane

Canes should take the bowl ban, IMO. Even if its the Orange Bowl.

Tonycane

Ok, I will ask the same question this year that I asked last year, a question that no one really responded to. If the NCAA has not rendered its verdict, do we self impose a bowl ban in 2013?

Basically, how many years do we punish ourselves? And even if we were to self impose 5 years of bowl bans, what guarantee is there that the NCAA does not disregard it and tack on another 4 years atop it?

86Cane

I am undecided on the whole boewl ban and ACCCG. My first reaction is to play in BOTH and let the NCAA do what they want. But then the more I think about it the more I question if that is the right decision?

86Cane

From what I read IF Miami chooses the bowl ban then they are also banned from the ACCCG by the ACC because it is a post-season game. Can't do one without the other.

orange 'n green in the vein

Win the division and it's time to roll the dice IMO. Self impose the same number of scholly restrictions UNC ended up with from their case and go stand in front off the committee on infractions. They'll add an extra bowl ban at the most and Jack is right, unless there's massive substantiation of the breadth of the repentant fruity midget's allegations dating back a decade, time to stop the self crucifixion for others satisfaction. Pell Grant scandal was way worse, that got a single bowl ban back then.

orange 'n green in the vein

86, you know the fan base is in shell shock when they find people cheering for the defense more bizarre than sitting on their ass during defensive series during a game with the stakes that Thursday's had riding on it. Whatever, I pay my money, I spend my time to attend, I get to cheer for the home-team and cuss out officials who throw BS flags to help out the bad guys. I'd behave better at a ballet, but this isn't that now is it?

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly OGV if we win the division go for it. The NCAA gonna do whatever they gonna do. We gotta cut this Plaxicoing ourselves with the self impose bowl ban garbage. For those don't comprehend Plaxicoing reference. It means shooting yourself in the leg.

Posted by: 86Cane | November 03, 2012 at 11:44 AM

Correct, 86. But taking the ban DOES NOT mean the same thing as taking a 3-game post season ban. The NCAA has no jurisdiction over Conference ttile games, they can rule that your season ends with "the last regularly scheduled game," but the Conference title game is regularly scheduled. My point is we aren't going to get credit for an extra year's bowl ban just by skipping that game.
In all the cases I can remember where a school self imposes penalties, the NCAA always seems to tack on more. So, by taking an extra ban this year, there is no guarantee they wouldn't add a third next year. Also, there is no evidence that taking more bowl bans reduces the scholarship losses that a team gets- it just isn't like a Chinese Restaurant menu where you pick the penalties you want.
What does all this mean? I don't think anyone knows for sure, just that if we self-impose more penalties, there's no guarantee that we won't get more. And if we self-impose, the ACC may only have 5 or 6 bowl-eligible teams to fill the bowl tie-ins, which will probably mean we don't share any bowl revenue this season.

orange 'n green in the vein

Hadn't even taken that thought into consideration j.w. Yes you get your flat payout from the ACC bowl till, but if you don't fill all your bowl slots, that till gets smaller and smaller. Plus the cost of the title game rights will go up if the ACC can finally start delivering those fantasized about FSU/UM return bouts in them instead of the gate poison that is Chokies/anybody.

jiggafras

Im sorry, if we win the coastal we should absolutely play the game, there is no way they give us more than one more bowl ban, we could always point to the ACC championship if we win as progress and would be a significant psychological barrier overcame. FSU could still end up losing the Atlantic and our chances would increase dramatically.

MassivCane

That ACC decision aggravates me, it is almost like they are saying they don't want Miami to play in their bowl game, why because there is a chance (even if it is ever so slight) that we could beat their poster child in FSU. Screw them, go to the 'ship, beat the Noles and them play Louisville in the Orange Bowl.

Phillip Sims is the QB for UVA. Transferred from Bama

Well the longer it is taking the NCAA the less I like it...:\

Jack

Great win for the Canes! Now lets finish strong Canes!

My last comment on the damn NCAA bullSh#%t "I hope"

USC got two a year bowl ban,because Bush got a $400k house ect. Plus the school was defiant with the investigation. UM has been very open and is working with the NCAA. The NCAA WANTS SCHOLARSHIPS! That's how you gut a program, bowl ban is window dressing.....Time to offer scholarships.

86Cane

OK, U guys convinced me: PLAY IT!

OGV...was I right about those dudes in front of us or what? First they were turning around looking at us funny because we were yelling during a football game. Then we got them going too and BAM we get the ball, we score and we win the game!

Jack

Phillip Simms from tennessee?

Jack

Nevermind Laquinton think I know who you mean.

Jack

We must beat the Cavilers! Another huge game for this coach and youthful team!! I am excited!

86Cane

Gatas are losing at home to Mizzu 7-0.

Tee hee, tee hee.

Brevardcane

For me it's about how to get this NCAA mess over as quickly as possible. If skipping the post season will do that then i would say do it. I suppose though no one knows what it would take. Hopefully those consultants the school hired will be able to give a good recommendation.

Tonycane

Love to see Donna Shalala come in to the NCAA hearing and instead of offering scholarship reductions, demand a scholarship increase for everything the university of Miami has done for college football!

orange 'n green in the vein

Yeah 86, the Al-alike day late Halloween costume guy was feeling it but his buddy's where just waiting to lose that game in the 2nd half. First half I heard that tired, "You make a better door than a window," whine from behind me during a series, I didn't turn around to see if it was a Chokie fan so I could invite him to take the starring role in my production of that stage classic I told you about in the parking lot, but if it was a Hurricane fan I would have told his sorry behind to either stand up or find another empty seat out of the line of sight instead of crying like a 'Turd fan forced to watch Georgia then Auburn on the schedule before conference expansion bailed him out.

SHOULD OF WORE GREEN HELMETS WITH THE ALL ORANGE.YOUR THOUGHTS WILLIE WILL?

Posted by: canezilla | November 02, 2012 at 09:40 AM

I agree Zilla. But personally that wuz too much orange for me, but I'm glad that we at least tried to do something different. I'd rather see em rockin all green uniforms wit the green helmets wit black socks and black shoes

WWIN

Why is everybody so excited about playing in a conference championship and bowl game that we ain't ready to play in yet????

Why are we accepting lower expectations just because we've never played in the acccg before??? We are Da, its "1st or last baby". NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP or NOTHING!!!! And I don't think we have a shot at the nc this year.

Give up the acccg and the bowls this year so that we'll be on a faster track to the ncg.

The NCAA wants our best lamb, they don't want our lamb that's half dead, blind, and wit a lame leg.

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, Virginia just ruined NC State's homecoming. They're still alive in the Coastal division thanks to that so UM will get their best game next week.

WWIN

OGV,

IMO Virginia is the toughest game we have left, duke will be beat up by the time they play us. This is the ultimate test for us because you know how we do when everything is lined up perfectly for us and all we have to do is win.

orange 'n green in the vein

Willie, if the UVA team that showed up in Raleigh today takes the field next week instead of the on that was lining up for the first 2/3rds of the year, I agree with you. Luckily that game still probably doesn't have much bearing on the division race when all this shakes out but you never know.

WWIN

^^^^^^^

I'm more concerned about us than them

dj moonbat

It's nice to know that UM is so good now, we can start thinking ahead about whether to graciously accept the ACC Championship game berth. Why, just last year, I would've been worried about losing to Virginia. No problem now, though, not now that we beat the mighty VT juggernaut.

orange 'n green in the vein

dj, Al himself proclaimed them the standard to measure by. A game under .500 on the year seems about right for the standard measurement to me, doesn't it to you too?

Go back and relive the amount of blog sweat being shed before the Duke game last year, UVA was being chalked up as a win in the week run up seeing as how there had never been a Thursday home game loss in UM history to that point.

86Cane

EMAIL I GOT FROM UM:

Hi Thomas-

THANK YOU for cheering us on at Sun Life Stadium on Thursday, and for doing your part to help Miami move into first place in the ACC Coastal Division. We truly appreciate all the ways in which you support the ‘Canes; from your season tickets, to inviting your friends and family to join us, and for spending your time with us at the stadium on game days.

86Cane

OGV...surely even your thick noggin can get what Golden meant when he said that about VT and Beamer, right?

86Cane

dj...it is all based on "IF" the Canes win out and have a shot. U know that nobody lives in the "here and now" anymore, it's all about next week, or next month or even next year (recruiting).

orange 'n green in the vein

Of course I get what he was trying to convince us of 86, I just completely disagree with it from the basis of the argument he was trying to get across by saying it. I know, shocking, I don't agree with everything Al tries to sell us, still want to see him win a national title next year. Both are not mutually exclusive.

orange 'n green in the vein

Did you thank them for not playing "Enter Sandman," pre-game 86? Only one week every two years they shouldn't be allowed to play it and they finally did in a win, coincidence? No. Also, don't mention where that extra ticket ended up going whatever you do.

Jack

86 -

I read an article that stated the average home attendance in 2001 for UM games was 48,000 fans per game. This year attendance is around 38,000 fans per game. Next year I would bet that the average goes up because we WILL be winning more games. Also, I hope Sunlife builds some seats closer to the Damn field and puts on a retractable roof!! Once Sunlife make those improvements the staduim will be much better with crowd noise, heat, home filed advantange ect. If they make those improvements there is no reason to leave Sunlife.

Als recruits are some of the best. Thats why our opponents are softer. We put a fence up around dade and win the recruiting wars then our opponents will half to settle for the crumbs.

Im excited and i believe its only gonna get better. Maybe we can made the ACC like the big easy...lol

We already self imposed a bowl ban... that should be enough to show the NCAA that we are being compliant. We do not need to appear to be begging... we should expect some scolly reductions but thats it. Al is gonna bring in more dollars than Satan in the future. Remember this is the UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU BABY.

We know the NCAA is run by sec schools. Its time to turn this thing around. We the most successful players and coaches are or have been in the NFL who can speak out about these injustices. I hope we get the machine behind Al.

Ohio...U have been doing a GREAT job on the Troll Patrol over the last few weeks.

THANK U!

mi@mic@ne

Steven needs to have a better percentage connecting on long passes. I know hes got a low percentage. And we cant keep dropping those long balls if we want to move to the next level.

Duke would have had a couple more long runs if Steven would have been more accurate on those swings.

orange 'n green in the vein

mi@, Morris' accuracy is starting to really become frustrating for me, not sure if the ankle injury is still affecting him or not but the high and behind the target passes and the swings in the grass to the backs is really puzzling as to why he can't correct that.

mi@mic@ne

We used to be qb U because of our almost perfect perimeter game. It was our bread and butter. Now we are very inconsistent... its not hard to change... just need to have a crash course in catching the ball cause these guys dont play as much as we used to.. to many video games.

mi@mic@ne

We used to play year round...lol

The football was part of our wardrobe... used to carry it every where lol

Jack we are averaging 48,000 this year as well my friend.

pbcfrcane13

Btw you have to skip the bowl games this year. I really think if we skip two bowl games and we take away a few scholarships and put ourselves on probation I think the NCAA will be happy with that and not hit us with anything else. Perfect example is look at Ohio State. They could be playing for a title this year instead because of 6-6 going to a dumb bowl game they have to sit it out this year.

Lets just say UM has a great year next year 1-3 loss season and win our divison. Everybody will be so mad that we did not skip the bowl this season.

pbcfrcane13

WOW the refs strike again for ND!!!

The refs who make bad calls need to have game bans lol

BigWindyCane1

Morris' footwork has not been good, and I think it has impacted his accuracy. Morris must work on his footwork and consistency if he really wants to be an elite ACC QB.

Duke is the best playmaker in the ACC, and the best Canes playmaker in years. He essentially flips the field when he is healthy, by giving UM the X plays. If Duke can stay healthy, I am not worried about the Canes ability to score points. Duke will see to that.

I wonder if Jimmy Johnson's presence made D No become more agressive on D. I saw a little more agressive playcalling and even a blitz. I like the way our LBs are developing, and having Porter back made a differnce. I think our defense will improve a lot.

For the first time in a while, the Canes will enter a three game stretch where they are favored to win each game. Let's see if Golden and staff can close the deal and win the first ever Coastal Division crown. If they do, I think the Golden critics will be silenced for a long time.

Like i said ND rise is the worse thing that can for college football .. its like boxing.. everyone knows the fix is in... a true loss of respect for the game.

Damn Nelson Agalor true freshman receiver from Tampa starts for USC just made an awesome TD...Amari Cooper true freshman receiver from Northwestern High starts for Bama..I guess we can't get them all but those two would have been nice!

TJL...not unless you have $$$, pimped out rides and Rolexs at the ready. NO SERIOUSLY.

OGV - I agree, Morris has a bunch of talent, and a great arm. Not 100% convinced either he or Fisch can take us to promised land.

Needs more touch on ball, go through his progressions more, would like to see a little more vocal leadership.

Can't argue about the guys' arm, though - I trust him more on the 50+ throws than I do on the 5 yarders....

86,

When you gon reply to my email???

Alph...if you were at the game in the upper deck 50 yard line like us then you would see what we see. Morris' issues are:

1. He does not see the field well at all. There are guys open on almost every play and they hardly ever see the ball.

2. He has only average acurracy on short to medium throws. He makes simple passes very tough to catch by throwing too hard, hot and high or at the hip or knees.

3. He appears to be a hard worker (this year, not last) but is only an average motivator, leader, and QB. He is not vocal enough and lacks "presence".

The weather channel just reported that a new tropical storm is brewing and will hit Miami on 11/17. BTW - the tropical storm will reach Cat 5 status by then and the name of the Hurricane is called Raizecane!!!

Hai guize! Where da fake gaturd info be?

S pent all day monitoring Canespace
K ept racking my brain to insult the owner
R ealized I'm a loser because
E very post I made got
E rased by the moderators for my own good
T he fact that this is my life and it equals a big fat
Z ero isn't the worst thing about me.

L ittle do I realize
I 'm a desperate shell of a human
V essel that deserves nothing but scorn
E verytime I waste another worthless
S econd of my life doing the same old scumbag routine here.

86 u are spot on my friend. I see the same thing from section 130 East End Zone Crew. QB play has to get better. I mean Morris is serviceable. Love the guy but just being honest.

86,

I got it and replied back. Thanks

That #21 from USC would've been nice also. I don't even think we sniffed that kid during recruiting.
