The Herb says:
Dorset is over-rated.
Morris played so, so.
The o-line still can't pass block.
Why not use Hagens in short yardage situations or at least give him the ball 4 to 5 times a game. Hell Bama's backs are 235 and they do just fine.
Morris and the wr's are out of sink. To many incompletions and yes there were a few drops, what would a Miami game be with out three or four drops.
Will reserve judgement on the dee until after next weeks game. They did what they should of done against a bunch of weak sisters. Luckily the kid dropped a bomb for FAU.
The special teams on kick offs looked slow. The kid from FAU was a hellave a punter.
Goudis looked good and so did our punter.
We have to develop a go to WR out of the 5 or 6 we have and we must find a bigger back to compliment DUKE, through recruiting. If we were a spread option team we would be fine with all these scat backs we have.
Our total numbers on offense looked good but if not for Duke where would we be?

dj moonbat's #5things:

- Who blew me away: Duke Johnson came into the game facing serious expectations, and easily exceeded them, getting close to 200 yds rushing on fewer than 20 carries. Even against BAD teams, a guy putting up those kind of numbers gets Heisman notice.

- Who didn't: Denzel Perryman was not as helpful as I would've hoped. Stephen Morris didn't get much help from his WRs (except Rashawn Scott, who really sacrificed for his catch), but still was underwhelming, including a pick that was really inexcusable. Dorsett was invisible. Stacy Coley: I was thinking maybe, when everybody was going all crrrrazy over his performance in camp, he should've said, "y'all have to understand that I'm not this good under pressure." That would've alleviated some of the disappointment of last night.

- New and exciting: Figueroa -- love this guy!! -- reminds me of some great Miami 'backers, coming in fast and low. (I wonder if he gets in trouble with D'No for overcommitting?) Dallas Crawford had some nifty punt return moves, and burst through the line with a quickness on his rushing TD.

- Kicking: very solid night for the UM kickers. Goudis and O'Donnell are looking like solid upgrades. In games against real competition, those points and yards really matter.

- Nagging Q: Is the D still bad? Tough to say. FAU lacks skills on offense, even though their defense wasn't too bad. The U's D is bigger, for sure. Presnap, they don't LOOK, to the naked eye, like they don't belong on a college football field -- both good developments. The scheme still looks awfully tentative, and the DTs we have are never, ever going to collapse a comptetently-blocked pocket without at least one extra guy coming in on a blitz. We'll find out a lot next week.

dj - I thought Kacey Rodgers had a nice game also

Duke looked good, the rest was not so good. Perhaps first game jitters, insecurities etc....I get pissed at lack of and/or failure to execute fundamentals. Some of it is on the players, but just as much is on the coaches. That is my biggest fault of UM football over the past 30 years....if we were a sharp fundamental oriented team and combined it with our talent and big play ability, we would have 5 more titles....ie we would have won those painful NC games.

We have a lot to work on...makes for good practices. Hopefully fundamentals will be stressed and we will get it together.

You have to execute the basics to win at any level on a consistent basis. We have to focus on those things....JMO

Yeah, and I thought Antonio Crawford had some decent plays, too. Also, of course, Herb Waters. None of them got to my 'blew me away' level, and none was new to the team, so...

Well, here's the thing: the pitch, it seemed to me, was developed by Schnellenberger, amplified by Johnson, and perpetuated by Erickson. It goes like this:

"Miami is going to let you be you. We are going to let you run wild with a few dozen other similarly-minded incredible athletes, and if you win, we aren't going to muzzle you."

This pitch gave Miami a HUGE competitive advantage for a good, long time. It is a tough pitch to reconcile with becoming a "sharp fundamental oriented team." Not impossible (see, e.g., the 2000-2001 teams...), but tough.

Look, u 'Debbie downers r clueless: VA Cane & OGV et all.
The defense is clearly better every where. The whole nation knows what our offense can do. It was just out of sync, that's all. R u going to crucify a freshman for dropping two passes in his 1st game? Chill the F out. Our kick off/punt coverage was awesome. Our return game wasn't because they had a hell of a punter who boomed the ball each time; knullified our skilled returners. For crying out loud, K-state lost to a div 2 school. U guys over the off season, have been the Darth Vaders of canespace; consistently negative. CALM DOWN & CARRRY ON with less negativity.
