didn't see this game, but read the recaps and stats. Appears once again we plaed down to the level of the opponent.

The improvement on TO's should have helped, and 200 yds rushing is solid. TOP was ok. So why such a close game?

Agree with earlier comments. The O has been toned down to compensate for the SM turnovers. To be fair he has not improved fro last season or emerged as the leader of this team. I doubt this will be much better in the games left as FSU and VT will be much tougher tests.

Clearly the D has improved, and clearly we've come back to win 2 games a year ago we may have lost. But the O is eratic at best, and other than a good ground game has yet to really have a big game. At this point you have ask if this is possible.

I called it 8-4, based on SM as the leader and the D needing help. Now I'd say we're good for 9-3 or maybe 10-2, but its SM that needs the help and the D has come on....

To be honest, I see only a few ways we can beat FSU.

1. Rivalry game - you never know
2. After a super season Winston finally has a terrible game
3. It rains so hard the field becomes a mess....

Good news, given the polls if we lose the drop won't be too bad. The season is really the VT game.....

Uhhh, I don't know if you noticed. But Morris didn't play too much the first 4 games if the year. #SelectiveAmnesia

College Game Day will be in Tallahassee!, the Canes are leading the Coastal Division and the Canes are relevant again. Golden, Morris, Coley and D'No all have accomplished something that the Canes haven't experienced in a decade. I am proud of my Canes and I am sure Golden Will have them ready to represent us well on the national stage.

The 'Canes are just preserving the element of surprise for next week's game against FSU. Boy, are THEY going to be surprised.

This is the very last bit of hope I've been hanging on to heading into Doak

BEERicane

longtime, that was a Morris vs Williams talking point, not so much a Morris-solo point.

BEERicane

But agreed. His stock is busy now.

So I understand you correctly, P17 hasn't played much but when he does...his piss poor play trumps Williams because he RW has played against scrubs?

SOUP

We're still a year or so away from being a championship team.

Make it two.

WWIN

When Williams played this year he looked WAY more comfortable than Morris. Golden don't wanna stick Williams in cuz he knows he'll have a qb controversy on his hands

Coldcane

No matter what anyone says...two things I know about next week's game....Miami will not quit and they won't get tired!!! I like our odds...12%er...vault it

The voices of reason!!

Go 'canes!!

Sarasota 'cane

...but we should still fire all the coaches!!

AfriCane

FL state is over rated...

SOUP

Sota...I would prefer we fire the guy from the UM ticket office who said UM only had 3700 tickets left for the game. They weere lucky IF there were 37,000 people at the game. It was pathetic, as was the game.

said this before the season. not ready yet, and with SM leaving we'll need another to retool at QB and add more depth.

2015 we're solid and ready to make a run for it. Fear the tie!!

SOUP

The ONLY thing good about this game was the weather. It was perfect!

BEERicane

How are we going to make a run in 2015 with a first time starting QB? Williams will be long gone. This is why Olsen or Kaaya will start next yr. They are the future. Not RW!

Brevardcane

We matched the win total from last year in October!

TJL

Hi TJL - actively looking in Juipter Farms now, hope to find something within the next couple of months

So this was the year/the game where the trend of sparsely populated canes games was going to correct itself? C'mon man! It's who the fans are! You want more folks in the stands then lower the ticket prices. Give away the upper deck and be happy if they buy a drink or a dog. The locals don't have any reason to drop a $100.00 bill in there, but they may leave $30-50 if you give them the opportunity.
Lower the field and put the students right behind both benches like in Blacksburg or any other college town for that matter. But you know what they'll do? They'll lower the field, put seats right behind both benches and then sell seat licenses and charge $100.00 a game per. F that! They don't know how to market their product. Neither do the Dolphins.

2015 we're solid and ready to make a run for it. Fear the tie!!

U are correct sir. Two more top 10 recruiting classes and 2 more years of UTough and WE READY!

SOUP

Beer...excuse me but it will be Gray Crow who starts next year.

BEERicane

My bad Soup! So long as it's not RW!

Sarasota 'cane

Mizz S Carolina going OT!!

BEERicane

Mizzou had that SEC East all wrapped up, but they give up a 15yd 4th and goal!!!

The Dude

I wanted to be 7-0 heading into next weekend and here we are. It hasn't been pretty, but we're here. I'll be routing for a miracle knowing that's what it will take to beat FSU. They are in my opinion the best team in the country. We need Morris to play his best game ever (which I can't see happening) especially on 3rd down and Goal Line. We need turnovers, probably 3 or 4. We need Goudis. Lastly, we need it to come down to a FSU kick. Wide Right IV! Go Canes!

Sarasota 'cane

Huge!

BEERicane

Missed FG! Mizzou goes down!

Sarasota 'cane

Wow!!

BEERicane

The laces were in!!!!!

SOUP

#5 Mizzou LOSES to #21 SC!!!

Ohio_Cane

Go USCe!! Canes thank U!

We may be #6 this week vs #2

Sarasota 'cane

Stanford's running around for their lives right now as well!

SOUP

"I LOVE U MIAMI!"

Sarasota 'cane

Baylor #5, UM #6 is my prediction.

Terrance Sullivan

Why Baylor beat a POS Kansas team that is like 2-5. at least Wake is 4-4. Go Beavers Beat Stanford! Connor Shaw has big onions as he leads Cocky to a comeback win over Truman and Mizzou. College Football baby Just win and advance. Gotta Love It. LOL Sota U cracking me up with the excuses. Love U man.

I'm only the messenger! It's just my opinion, future results should not be based on past performance!

BEERicane

Truman and Mizzou?! What is that about? Please explain this reference. I understand he is from the state, but he sure never went to school there.

Terrance Sullivan

Truman is the mascot name of Mizzou.

They should be starting Williams now for next year but they not, jus like they'll do next year

Sarasota 'cane

Ore St. is looking good...so far...

BEERicane

TSully, great trivia info there!

But, that is some stupid crap by UMizzou. Never set foot in a classroom there yet they name the mascot after him.

Why doesn't Iowa name the Hawkeye Hoover? Super-lame Mizzou!

Sarasota 'cane

Ore St. should have kicked the FG.
