What's concerning is that FAU is the second worst team that we will face this season, and we had a pedestrian effort against them. I think all of us were hoping for a 40 to 50 point win.

On the positive, I guess a 28 pt win will prevent any overconfidence going into the Florida game.

Coaches poll, yes The Dude, AP, probably not.

Don't think they look like one of the best 25 teams in the nation this year from what I've seen so far.

I'm wondering if we will be in the Top 25 after this weekends losses.

Oh yeah, that's right, FAU hung around, we were even actually in danger of losing that game.

Whatever.

DIDN'T OUR CANES BEAT DA HELL OUTTA THAT SAME V TECH TEAM LAST YEAR???!!!

VA Cane

Actually he is a VT grad played there and graduated 1970 I think.....I played HS for him in the 70s we won 38 in a row 2 States...he then went to Maryland and Morehead State.

Shameless Plug (stole that line from Chuck Todd UM grad and biased Liberal) left DT and fullback for VT played for me in youth league.

VTs D did a pretty damn good job vs #1....D kept it close STs and O gave them 3 TDs Foster knows D I see him leaving in next couple to be a HC. Beamers son Shane is Asst HC...worked under Spurrier....I am not sold on him as HC but my contacts tell me that is the VT plan....Foster not at all happy about it as he has had many offers...he will take one soon.

Is Bama #1? Oregon Stanford GA OSU will have something to say maybe they are #1. Bama just like us....catch Sabans comments I sure AG feels the same way....he said Bama has a lot of work to do and we need to put a technical emphasis on fundamentals...Tell em Nick. I preach it endlessly....as a 4 time BCS champ that man damn sure knows what it takes....basics....JMO

For school that has never won anything but a conference title, he's slightly better than Bill Dooley.

If they need reminding there's always that empty trophy case they can check in a pinch CGNC!

CGNC

OGV I think it is because Beamer has been there so long they think he must have won something right?

Game is in Atlanta dj, but yeah, they've made the people who thought VT had any chance in the preseason look just as bad as the Chokies do tonight in a lot of a ways.

CGNC

Soup and Terrance, were are the pics of you all at the game/?? Hmmmmmm?

Watched the opening of the Clemson - Georgia game. Had to almost stop from laughing out loud "a storied tradition that you never get tired of looking at" as the buses, yes buses come into the stadium. I guess they don't realize that all teams get to their stadiums the same way. Whatever.

dj moonbat

It sure looks to me like Alabama is making its bid to be (if it is not already) the most dominant college football dynasty evah -- certainly since the NCAA started limiting team scholarships.

Opening your season going into Blacksburg, which most agree is an unwelcoming environment, and thrashing the ever-living **** out of the Hokies -- that's the way to defend a championship (which is, BTW, your 3rd in 4 years).

I don't like 'em, but I have to respect 'em.

MIAMI NORTHWESTERN VS ST THOMAS AQUANIS AT SUN LIFE ON TV

8th Man in the Box

Quick thoughts after watching on TV

Coley, although he had the dropsies appears to get wide open a lot. He'll get it together and will make us proud

Herb Waters...me likey!! He'll become a big time player

Ro Scott...dang dang dang..that kid can play..get your head together and your shoulder right...can be a major asset

Gus Edwards..I think he may be show us something by mid to late season...nice frame and seemed to have a lil quicks

that's it for now

4-Real

I will agree with u BigWindy when Duke puts up big numbers against a team with a pulse.

BigWindyCane1

As of right this moment, Duke Johnson is leading rusher in all of college football. I think that Miami Norland grad is pretty special

4-Real

All I know Ogv is that Bama best not play Oregon or any other team with a pulse!! Keep in mind Miami beat the crap outta this vt team with a bunch of freshmen!

Old Skool

Tebow cut. NFL career over. Underwear modeling awaits. Hires Anthony Weiner to coach him.

orange 'n green in the vein

Offense and defense have enough points to win without them for now 4-Real.

If this is the best shot you can take against the biggest winners in the modern history of the game who are looking to set the bar higher than ever it has been set before, this is a major failure of leadership. UM better not finish behind this joke program.

I'm going to say this though, Beamer looks physically better than he's been since he was in the Big East to me. His team however, not so much, LOL!

BEERicane

Negative OGV,

Beamer Ball is dead, nada, kaput, erased from existence.

Beamer ball is so flat.

I understand Beamer. He must think he has a pocket QB? Run that kid.

He's going to have to return the keys to the white pickup at this rate.

2 drops for Amari Cooper, time to bench him!!!!

SOUP's brother is cool, I've never met the other one though Judson.

The Dude, I'm trying to decide, Logan Thomas = homeless man's Josh Freeman? No, Josh Freeman was actually good at one point.

dj, Cho made them start lying about VT. Hey, plenty of conference titles in a basketball conference to show for it tough.

VA C, he's more my punching bag than my buddy. Love watching Beamer ball self destruct, it's such a 'stay close and pray for rain' type of mentality it will never be top flight successful.

4-Real

WWIN, I REALLY do feel good bout nex week.

Old Skool

Twas a pleasure meeting DeeCane and Terrance, Dee is cool to see a game with. The man's got football focus. He keeps track of who's in, who's out, which side of the field they're throwing to, which side their avoiding, whereas I can get distracted by gyrating bottoms of which there were plenty.

Terrance is great company after a game. The man knows how to chill. He sits back, enjoys a couple of his pleasures -- a big stogie and a brewski - chats and relaxes. You can see it and feel it. Everything is right in his world.

As for Native Cane, he's a great dude to take a road trip through Florida with. There's another tale around every bend: hunting gators and wild hogs, kayaking the Alafia, airboating on Kissimmee or swimming in the springs. I learned the best places to buy jerky and swamp cabbage as well as how to cook it. Ever wonder what goes on in a Cowboy Church? Native knows.

I met the white sheep of the Popadak clan: Tom's brother. As for Soup, with a beat down next week, his game shirts are going to be collector's items. Trust me, you're gonna be wearing it 10 years from now.

4-Real

Alex Collins starting 4 the hogs, & looking pretty good considering he's a true frosh.

You're not kidding. He is wildly inaccurate.

dj moonbat

Their coach should write another book; "Still running on empty," can be the title. Or if he wants to go really meta, don't have a title at all and it has a picture of an empty trophy-case on the cover.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | August 31, 2013 at 06:13 PM


The funny thing about VT is that they really weren't, ever, a true powerhouse program.

For so very, very long, though, they kept being one of those cliche underdog teams -- you know, Blue Collar guys, who Do All the Little Things Right -- while being *almost* a really good team, that after a while all the sportscasters started to forget that excellence was always just out of VT's reach. The sportscasting world decided some time around the turn of the millennium to simply start acting as if VT was, in fact, a traditionally great football program.

But, in fact, they ain't.

Wow, the guy who worked with Teblow and Thomas on their mechanics is having a rough day today, huh?

The Dude

Posted by: Montreal-Cane | August 31, 2013 at 06:16 PM

We did just fine is pass protection I thought.

The Dude

Wooh! Here comes Tech.

VA Cane

OGV I googled it and nothing came up regarding it as a quote; pretty smart young man played for me before my sophomore year in college...apparently he came up with it on his own...pretty smart young man.

OGV your buddy Coach Beamer looks like he needs to work on those special teams some more.....that punt return sure was bad....when he kicked it the ball was low line drive....I said look out....Ya Think?!!!!!!

Montreal-Cane

Herb Waters was impressive last night. He runs better routes than #4. Waters could be used for kick and punt returns but i doubt this will happen... in the short term because he didn't practice at it.

Rodgers seems to have improved a lot. Artie burns with his speed and instinct will be very good.

Our OL needs to be much more agressive just like Alabama...Short and goal or 3rd and short...Just run over the DL.

The Dude

They didn't quit there OGV, nice run.

orange 'n green in the vein

VT always quits down two scores against a decent team, heck even against JMU they'll quit.

Their coach should write another book; "Still running on empty," can be the title. Or if he wants to go really meta, don't have a title at all and it has a picture of an empty trophy-case on the cover.

roachcane77

Yeah, we kept our O pretty vanilla, except for the reverse that almost cost us Duke. I was kind of surprised we ran that play before next week.

roachcane77

That's one of the most accountable and considerate statements that I've ever read on this blog. I bet you're an awesome coach to your kid's on and off the field!
Go 'canes!!
Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | August 31, 2013 at 01:53 PM

I was thinking the same thing 'Sota.

Jramos

Offense lookd a little sloppy. Morris was not nsync with the receivers all night. Personally I think they were running pretty vanilla offense. Just run, short passes, and run again, so mayb they're saving it for nxt week

dj moonbat

Wow, that Johnny Manziel is all class.

WWIN

Can somebody please explain our punt return formation we ran last night????????????????????????????

The Dude

Bama looks ready for 2013.

Account Deleted

BTW...5 sacks last night, only 13 for all of last season....gotta note that we improved, plus a few blitz packages that worked as well

Account Deleted

Back on line after last nights game...my thoughts the day after...

it's game 1, things should improve, or it's not going to go well in week 2..

Duke is pure magic on the field, enjoy him while he's a Cane!

Morris was ok, seemed lost and out of sync at times. The int was on a bad read/broken route or something, but he had alot of bad throws along with some good ones

Dorsett never showed, Coley dropped what he could, and the TE's caught a ball or two. Waters and the others did well, we'll need it next week for sure

OL had no push on short yardage, and I didn't see many big holes open up. For a strong point of the team it sure didn't show.

DL seemed bigger and clogged up the middle much more than in the past. Clearly an improvment, but remember this is FAU not UF.

LB's did ok, Figs had some big hits, Perryman did ok, dropped an easy pick .

DB's - Some good hits, but giving ground at the snap just like last season. Beware, this may be an early sign of what we lived through last year..

Kicking game was solid, return team never showed,although the FAU punter was NFL caliber and probably was the reason why. An offsides penalty on a KO btw is just plain dumb..

Offensive scheme was hard to figure, bubble screens are back, not sure what the running plan is, and the downfield throws were rarely open or on the mark. Ho short yardage game at all. We'll see next week where this is going..

Defense look better, but remember this is FAU. If pass coverage scheme is the same as last year we'll be giving up lots of yards and points. Overall though the talent and size looked much better.

Coaching - other than too many first half penalties (another silly delay of game penalty to start our first possession of the game, really...) AG seemed to have them focused enough to win.

Biggest improvement in a team is between week 1 and 2, we'll see next week what we've really got.

Last, hope Scott is back soon, that was a great catch

My prediction remains the same for week two since the spring game..Gators, unless Duke can do it all we're just not ready....yet....

Alex D

Unless the U decided to declined the penalty? I'm not sure. USC and UCLA started doing the same thing when they play each other.

The Dude

Posted by: Alex D | August 31, 2013 at 04:18 PM

Wasn't FAU supposed to be charged a timeout then?

WWIN

4-real, I wanted the gaytors to win today so we can give em their first L next week

Alex D

FAU was a good tune up game for the U. I hope this game can become a good friendly series, if they can schedule it yearly; by far better than playing FIU. Btw, did anybody notice that both teams wore their dark home jersey? Keep up the good work Legion.

CaneRock

Sooooo...Johnny WOMANziel and His teammates are rubbing their fingers like they're counting money...and that's OK.

But the kid from USC shaved His palms, and made reference to "breakin' bread" (OFF THE FIELD!), and that's NOT OK!...

PHUCK! THE NCAA!

4-Real

Gaytors defense is gonna carry their team this year. Having said that, they are good but by no means are they great, nor will they ever be under Muschump. The fact that Golden is chopping his own recruits is a clear indication that he is through with projects & $55 recruits.

Sarasota 'cane

Toss up next week. UF was playing without their best CB, RB, and LB. UM is at home. The line should be even after what I just watched. Should be an awesome week of blogging!

Did he come up with that on his own or did you ever find out where he picked that up from? Either way for an 8th grader, that's pretty good.

VfB_Cane

Big plays by Covington and Hester ... for the Toledo D.

dj moonbat

WWIN, u r obviously not watching the FL Game right now. We don't have to play flawless. FL doesn't have an offense. Plus, we have a QB which is all Toledo is missing right now to take the lead.

Posted by: NigeianCane | August 31, 2013 at 01:52 PM


Yeah, it's not looking like UF will be UM's toughest game this year. Top 10, my a$$. Still, unlike FAU, they have four years' worth of recruiting classes on the field, and Miami will need to play its A game. The days when Miami had horsepower to spare against a real opponent are past.

The Dude

Ha ha ha ha, Gators suck.

WWIN

Burton can kiss our A$$!!!!!!

The Dude

Florida makes a ton of mistakes and their D bails them out. They better not make mistakes against us because we will hurt them. We only need to improve 1 thing to beat the Gators. Catch the d@mn ball!

WWIN

Looks like somebody watched our game last night (cough gaytors cough)

4-Real

Lay off the sauce Va. Anyway, if Toledo had just a piece of a qb they would actually have a shot!

The Dude

1 half an hour and the cousin will be playing his first game against Virginia. Lets go Dallin! Knock some fool out!

Sarasota 'cane

Burton is gonna be a thorn for us next week!

Sarasota 'cane

UF between -3.5 and -7 is what I was thinking. I am no more confident calling this game after watching the turds today then I was last week.

Sarasota 'cane

This game is eerily similar to UM's game last night.

VA Cane

Thanks Sarasota,

one of my kids who was 13 looked at me years ago when I asked him what he thought of life...he said "Life is a race but we all need to slow down and work on our form". I was amazed....and often think about that. Pretty good advice from a young kid...I try to remember it in life and football.

I get fired up about UM and sometimes forget my form; I am learning to appreciate the advice and not have to treat my fellows on here with indifference because we may not see 1 or 1000 things in the same light. Hey maybe I'm improving my fundamentals by practicing...just a thought...

AfriCane

He's comp % is high bcuz he's throwing little girly dump off passes, no long passes. I'm sure DP will house a couple of those next week while Figatron destroys anyone that catches the others.

DeeCane

Ft. Hood DeeCane? I was station there with 1st Cav! Loved going to Austin on the weekends. 6th Street in Austin is one of the best music scenes in America!! Have fun.

And then my personal #2 blogger makes that last sentence false while I type it up . . .

Your nephew better keep putting them through the uprights, even it they squeak through this week, going to need to scrounge every point.

orange 'n green in the vein

Well Driskel started off 7-7 and looked better throwing the ball against zone than he ever has and appears to be able to read the defense this year instead of immediately panicking when his first read isn't obviously open.

Of course, I'm waiting for the obvious, 'they're keeping it vanilla to not show their hand next week,' good for the goose statement. But, not seeing it yet . . .

You got to give credit where due 4-real. This place can turn into froth of negative nonsense at the drop of a hat!

Sarasota 'cane

My take with UM and UF is that they are both playing with a combination of 1st game jitters coupled with a vanilla playbook.
Mistakes of any variety will be glaring next Saturday. Fortunately for UM the squad that struggled last night has already proven that they can play at a higher level.

Go 'canes!
