Canespace: Hate Week: Miami vs FSU

CaneRock

DAFUQ! is wrong with some of the folks in Texas! Can't stand when folks make DUMASS! comments like THIS!

“Going forward participation medals or trophies will be going away. KYA Football board feels that giving participation medals or trophies isn’t sending our children the right message,” the association wrote in a Facebook post. “Life does not give you a participation job or medal, life makes you earn everything you get,” the announcement continued.

Correction:

I'd wear pants too.

I have this thing about the Canes and cool weather. I was born and raised in Miami and never saw my breath, much less snow until I was in my 20s. Since, I've lived all over and cool/cold weather is no big thing.

So, let's don't talk about the 49 degree weather forecast. If I were golden, I'd wear a shirt and tie and nothing else. More important, the equipment guy would be banned from bringing those damn big coats. Remember when we wore them in Orlando a few years back at 55 degrees and no showed the game.

Our NFL canes have done well in Minny, Green Bay, Buffalo and other such garden spots. Man up.

Soup that Skyway site is interesting.

I will say its very strange feeling to be climbing that span in your vehicle enjoying all the beauty of the bay and gulf at Egmont Key then see a vehicle at the top and realize some poor soul just took a leap.

NativeCane

TonyCane, Im with U, Miami should arrive in Tallahassee with a huge chip on their shoulder, I know Soup and his buds will!

DEM CANES!!!

D4-Cane

So who thinks this spread get closer as game day looms? I think it will be around 17 by kickoff.

raizecane

For the FSU game I look at it like this.....we have everything to gain, and nothing to lose.

There it is right there.

D4-Cane

Brandon Meriweather on Brandon Marshall:

"He feels like I need to be kicked out of the league. I feel like people who beat their girlfriends should be kicked out of the league, too. ... You tell me who you'd rather have? Someone who plays aggressive on the field or someone who beat up their girlfriend?"

Can you say owned? Haha!

SOUP

JCane...that is a negative. I have been to The Doak in Tally five times but the first time was in 2005.

JCane

Were you at the 1983 game in Tally, Soup? As I recall, I was freezing my arse off. Canes came back to win by one on Jeff Davis' field goal (the famous "this one's for you, coach."). Sounds like it won't quite be as cold this week.

SOUP

Bring them on. Bring them on.

Posted by: TonyCane | October 28, 2013 at 11:06 PM

I am almost certain that that is NOT what she said?

JCane

Heather Dinich on the game:

Hopefully we find a way to have some ball control on offense along with some nice mixed in passes to all receivers on the field. Sad to say, but a well-played close game with a loss by the U would likely earn respect nationally, unless perceived as an FSU implosion. Right now the U gets almost as much respect as a top 10 undefeated team as the KC Chiefs do being the only remaining NFL undefeated team halfway through the season (haven't played anyone with a winning record). I hope the U finds a way to earn MUCHO respect this week.

TonyCane

Honestly, we have FSU in perfect position. They've blown out opponents, are ranked #3, and probably are believing that everyone is a cake-walk.

Miami has had to claw and scratch back in three straight games, is being badly disrespected, and is not that far away from the Seminoles in talent.

Bring them on. Bring them on.

TonyCane

About this game, I will simply use Gimli's quote from The Two Towers:

"Certainity of death, small chance of success...What are we waiting for?"


MassivCane

12% crew fall in. Its FSU week. You know kehoe is getting his biys ready...

BigWindyCane1

D4, I have had the pleasure of seeing Duke run on a wet field from a field level view on several occasions, and I have rarely seen a running back that runs better on a wet field.

His feet are light and his steps are a thing of rare beauty. If he gets good blocking up front, Duke will run well on a wet field, no doubt.

D4-Cane

Oh man that site has some brutal comments and pictures. Pretty twisted.

Ohio_Cane

SOUP... Deal!!

D4-Cane

Those are some crazy statistics.

SOUP

Early bird gets the worm!

SOUP

Suicide prevention is NOT a joke:

http://www.skywaybridge.com/home.htm

SOUP

D4...just tell the FSU guys that there is a phone at the bottom of the Skyway Bridge to call suicide prevention just in case! LOL

D4-Cane

Typically bad weather favors rushing teams. We need Duke/Crawford/The Bus to put the team on their back and run behind our o-line. Gotta dominate time of possession and keep the ball out of Winston's hands.

Maybe a few shots downfield, but we can't afford quick 3 and outs early in the game with the way FSU has been playing lately. We need to keep the game slow and close, and ratchet up the pressure on Winston. He has been sacked 12 times, more than Morris and he has played less time. He's maybe played 1 full game at BC (I may be wrong), so who knows how well he will perform when he's getting knocked down and having to play all night.

In the end I am just so sick of the trash talking Noles fans acting like we have no chance. If we go out there and punch them in the mouth I might have to stop some of my friends from jumping off the Skyway Bridge haha!

Weather for Tally this weekend:

Ohio...we could just meet at the BCS championship game when Miami plays Oregon and I'll give U the shirt there and save shipping? LOL

SOUP

D4...I heard about the same thing, clearing Sat afternoon and chilly by Florida standards at game time.

Ohio_Cane

Cool, jw. Like I told U, I'm more than happy to buy one

D4-Cane

Supposed to rain Friday all day, Saturday morning and afternoon then clear up for night time. Currently predicted 49 degree game time temperature. That's the current forecast, but who knows, weather always changes. I am undecided if a wet field and a chilly night will help our hurt us.

SOUP

Ohio...I have ordered more with the score included for this batch. Scheduled to pick them up in Jax on 11/21.

Sycane - most of the bloggers there are cool, I have posted there before in the past and its never been a problem. They run a well monitored blog. Basically those comments are what we all have been saying: This game will be our litmus test

Sy-Cane

Check out the threads on Tomahawk Nation. Interesting read. Some excerpts:

I'm arguing that UCLA losing to good teams isn't the same thing as losing to bad teams.
I am NOT arguing Miami’s ranking. I am arguing Miami’s ability. I’m not sure how you’re missing that, exactly.

I don’t care a lick about UCLA’s or Washington’s rankings. But when you’re objectively looking at the best teams in the country, no, Miami shouldn’t get much credit for what they’ve done to this point. They’ve beaten seven teams that range anywhere from okay to terrible. They’ve beaten everyone that’s been in front of them, and more power to them. And in rankings, that’s what matters. Miami deserves their RANKING.

But when you’re looking at who the best teams actually are, and gauging what team would be favored in what game, Miami is not a very good team. And it’s not just as simple as saying Miami is 7-0 and Washington is 4-3, so Miami is great and Washington is terrible. That is a simplistic and childish way of looking at the sport.

Is Washington deserving of being ranked? Probably not. Are they the same as a generic 4-3 team? Absolutely not. They have losses to two teams currently ranked in the top 5, and the F/+ rankings of the three teams that beat them are #3, #4, and #6. Is Miami deserving of their ranking? Absolutely. Are they the same as a generic 7-0 team? Absolutely not. They haven’t played a single team higher than #30 in F/+, and only two in the top 50.

Here’s my point: Give Miami Washington’s schedule and they are, at best, 5-2. Probably 4-3. Give Washington Miami’s schedule and Washington is at worst 6-1.

Again, this has NOTHING to do with Miami’s ranking. This is about Miami’s on-field performance. Which has been incredibly unimpressive against mediocre competition.

Miami’s legitimately probably one of the 20 best teams in the country. They’ll likely finish the season 3-2 or 2-3 in their next five games. That’s hardly a bad team, it’s just saying that their ability is not in line with their current ranking. NOT that their current ranking isn’t deserved based on winning the games they had in front of them.

------------------
I think the offense will definitely be in sync...
If UM comes into the game thinking they are going to spread the ball and pass against FSU then this game will be over by half-time because Morris has been playing like crap and has proven to be over-rated and inconsistent as a passer. If he turns the ball over against FSU the way he has been doing then it’ll be over quickly. So it’ll probably depend on how much pride will James Coley swallow for this game. The smart thing to do would be to try to control as much of the tempo and clock as possible through the run game but I just don’t see Coley doing that early on. He tends to try to go pass heavy until it’s 9-1-1 .. So we’ll see what happens…

Throughout the 90s and early 2000s, I did not really hate FSU because they never hesitated to schedule the Hurricanes every year no matter how good or bad we were. The Gators and ND, however, are a different story. I respected the Noles as a formidable and worthy opponent, with good players and honorable coaches.

I disliked but respected the'Noles under Bowden because they were a worthy opponent that stood in our path toward five rings, but now under Jimbo and his negative recruiting, I am really starting to hate FSU

I've read before that early morning pumping has no bearing on anything since the tanks are buried underground and the tanks stay at basically the same temp at night and during the day.

O_C, I've heard arguments that are for and against this theory...but gas does expand when it's heated though. Also, I remember reading an article where the AG in Florida was investigating the prices at the pump, as it pertains to the weather. So who knows.

Pretty good article on how to twerk the gas pump. Good tips for you road warriors headed to Tallahassee this weekend:

TIPS ON SAVING GAS.

March 20, 2011 at 5:38pm

TIPS ON PUMPING GAS (SOME PEOPLE WERE
SENDING THIS IN EMAIL I FIGURED IT WOULD BE MORE EFFECTIVE ON HERE. REPOST ON YOUR PROFRILE AS A NOTE):

I don't know what you guys are paying for
gasoline.... but here in California we are paying up to $3.75 to $4.10 per
gallon. My line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are
some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every gallon:

Here at the Kinder Morgan Pipeline where I work in San Jose, CA we deliver about 4 million gallons in a 24-hour period thru the
pipeline.. One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and gasoline, regular and premium grades. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of

16,800,000 gallons.

Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying
in the afternoon or in the evening....your gallon is not exactly a gallon.

In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role.

When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode If you look you will see that the trigger has
three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more gas you have in
your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof.

This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon is actually the exact amount.

Another reminder, if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up;
most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered,
and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

I've been disappointed in Porter, who had a great start and a terrific game against Florida. he's never made it this long into the season without an injury, so maybe he is worn down.

Not getting any meaningful push on pass plays.

Maybe slowed with minor injuries??

LA3

WR R. Scott? Is he going to play Saturday?

UpNorthCane27

So what are the commentators that make fun at THE U being #7 going to say when we beat the lil noles? let me take a guess...

Excuse 1. The noles played down to their opponents and beat themselves.

Excuse 2. The refs had some real questionable calls and missed a few calls that screwed fswhoos drives.

Excuse 3. The U paid off the officials, the fswhoo players, and everyone else in order to get the W and they should be given the Death penalty.

F*** everyone and anyone who doesn't stand by the U goddammitt!!!

"I think Morris and Coley have been playing a little possum,,,,,,"

That possum got ran over about 20 times!
BUT, I sure hope you are right!
And stopping Noles running game won't be easy with LB's 5 yards off the ball...Then passing game will be one HELL of test.
Unless DNO watched every NFL game and top college DEF line up on the line of scrimmage and in gaps, then we are in difficult position!

Well deserved for Perryman. From the first time he put on a Canes uniform, you could see the potential. Perryman is the best LB in the ACC, and should be a sure fire ACC first teamer, even though other ACC LBs get all the hype. Its great to see the Canes put a LB on that finalist list.

IMHO anything less than the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl in Atlanta would be a serious letdown. I mean my preference would be 1. BCS National Title Game in LA. 2. BCS Orange Bowl in Miami. 3. BCS Sugar Bowl in New Orleans(At Large BCS Team aka the 2nd ACC team because I feel either us or Clemson or Florida State gets this game we better win the Coastal which means we better beat those castrated turkeys). 4. Chik Fil A Peach Bowl in Atlanta. 5. I wont be happy with but will settle for Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. the rest of the bowls would truly be pissin wind scenarios.

The Road to Charlotte:

1. Miami
Record: 7-0
Conference Record: 3-0
Remaining Conference Games: 5
Vs. Conference Teams with >.500%: 3
- at #3 FSU *
- vs. Va. Tech *
- at Duke *
- vs. UVA
- at Pitt

Notes: Miami has played the LEAST amount of conference games than anyone on the Coastal (Syracuse also only has three). Therefore, it is critical to win these remaining games and for the teams behind them to lose, especially Va. Tech. They also have the toughest remaining schedule in the road to Charlotte.

2. Virginia Tech
Record: 6-2
Conference Record: 3-1
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at B.C.
- at #7 UM *
- vs. Maryland *
- at UVA

Notes: Maryland isn't as good as advertised. B.C. can be sneaky. UVA is a joke. UM MUST win vs. the Hokies. to secure a spot in Charlotte.

3. Georgia Tech
Record: 5-3
Conference Record: 4-2
Remaining Conference Games: 2
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- vs. Pitt
- at #8 Clemson
- vs. Alabama A&M
- vs. Georgia
Notes: They've won two in a row. Pitt is weird, and Clemson is a top ten team. Winning both conference games seems like a tall order.

4 (T). Duke
Record: 6-2
Conference Record: 2-2
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- vs. N.C. State
- vs. #7 UM
- at Wake
- at N.C.

Notes:
These guys have won four in a row, including two conference games. They're bowl eligible and have an outside shot at the title game. Duke gets a week off, N.C. State, then UM.

4 (T). Pittsburgh
Record: 4-3
Conference Record: 2-2
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at Ga. Tech
- vs. #25 Notre Dame
- vs. N.C.
- at Syracuse
- vs. #7 UM

Notes: Though they've underachieved, they're still in the hunt... kind of. They own a tiebreaker over Duke. They're the weirdest team in the ACC, and the last team on UM's schedule.

5. North Carolina
Record: 2-5
Conference Record: 1-3
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at N.C. State
- vs. UVA
- at Pitt
- vs. Old Dominion
- vs. Duke

Notes: They're not making the ACC Title Game, as UM, Va. Tech, and Georgia Tech have all beaten them. But the effort vs. UM may have inspired them to a bowl game and many of the remaining games look winnable.

6. Virginia
Record: 2-6
Conference Record: 0-4
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 3
- vs. #8 Clemson
- at N. Carolina
- at #7 UM
- vs. Va. Tech

Notes: They've owned UM the past three years, but this team is different. They've lost five in a row, and Clemson is next. They get a bye week before UM. If the Canes should lose here... it would be absolutely shameful.

LB Thanks for posting this. Much appreciated. Go Canes! Beat FSU!

LB thanks for the mad work U putting in. Really insightful stuff man.

LB

Down with the Noles!

SOUP

Really good stuff LB, really good.

SOUP

But most importantly, I would like to see them come out on Saturday and play like real Hurricanes - from start to the four zeros don't back down, execute at a high level and play like true winners. Go Canes!

There IT is right there.

The Road to Charlotte:

1. Miami
Record: 7-0
Conference Record: 3-0
Remaining Conference Games: 5
Vs. Conference Teams with >.500%: 3
- at #3 FSU *
- vs. Va. Tech *
- at Duke *
- vs. UVA
- at Pitt

Notes: Miami has played the LEAST amount of conference games than anyone on the Coastal (Syracuse also only has three). Therefore, it is critical to win these remaining games and for the teams behind them to lose, especially Va. Tech. They also have the toughest remaining schedule in the road to Charlotte.

2. Virginia Tech
Record: 6-2
Conference Record: 3-1
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at B.C.
- at #7 UM *
- vs. Maryland *
- at UVA

Notes: Maryland isn't as good as advertised. B.C. can be sneaky. UVA is a joke. UM MUST win vs. the Hokies. to secure a spot in Charlotte.

3. Georgia Tech
Record: 5-3
Conference Record: 4-2
Remaining Conference Games: 2
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- vs. Pitt
- at #8 Clemson
- vs. Alabama A&M
- vs. Georgia
Notes: They've won two in a row. Pitt is weird, and Clemson is a top ten team. Winning both conference games seems like a tall order.

4 (T). Duke
Record: 6-2
Conference Record: 2-2
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- vs. N.C. State
- vs. #7 UM
- at Wake
- at N.C.

Notes:
These guys have won four in a row, including two conference games. They're bowl eligible and have an outside shot at the title game. Duke gets a week off, N.C. State, then UM.

4 (T). Pittsburgh
Record: 4-3
Conference Record: 2-2
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at Ga. Tech
- vs. #25 Notre Dame
- vs. N.C.
- at Syracuse
- vs. #7 UM

Notes: Though they've underachieved, they're still in the hunt... kind of. They own a tiebreaker over Duke. They're the weirdest team in the ACC, and the last team on UM's schedule.

5. North Carolina
Record: 2-5
Conference Record: 1-3
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 2
- at N.C. State
- vs. UVA
- at Pitt
- vs. Old Dominion
- vs. Duke

Notes: They're not making the ACC Title Game, as UM, Va. Tech, and Georgia Tech have all beaten them. But the effort vs. UM may have inspired them to a bowl game and many of the remaining games look winnable.

6. Virginia
Record: 2-6
Conference Record: 0-4
Remaining Conference Games: 4
Vs. Conference Teams >.500%: 3
- vs. #8 Clemson
- at N. Carolina
- at #7 UM
- vs. Va. Tech

Notes: They've owned UM the past three years, but this team is different. They've lost five in a row, and Clemson is next. They get a bye week before UM. If the Canes should lose here... it would be absolutely shameful.

Soup Great Article, Great Pics, I would have Virginia Tech at #5 tied with LSU. I hate those castrated turkeys. Go Canes! Beat FSU!

BigWindyCane1

They can say what they want. But Miami has a shot to win this game. This isn't going to be a gimmie lay down for FSU like Clemson was, they are a good team. Playing all three fazes very good. Jameis is playing great, got a three headed monster at RB. 4 recievers. ..and a great TE. But this game on Saturday is what we have been waiting for. Nobody said we would be 7-0 ranked #7 in the country. Let's go canes. Put JBoo on his ass

I agree 100%. That is why they play the games. Winners and loosers are determined every Saturday, and UM is perfect so far this year. If UM does not turn the ball over, they can win this game.

I love those stats posted by Ohio Cane. I like the fact that UM feels it can line up and run the ball on anyone when it has to. That is how championships are built, and that is how football is meant to be played. Unless the Canes get behind in this game, I think we will see more ball control and less hurry up as we saw against Wake. I think Morris and Coley have been playing a little possum, and you will see a few additional wrinkles that we have not seen. Most of all, the Canes have the ability to at least shut down the running game and make FSU one dimensional.

I feel really good about the Canes chances, but most importantly, I would like to see them come out on Saturday and play like real Hurricanes - from start to the four zeros don't back down, execute at a high level and play like true winners. Go Canes!

F' the Noles!
Time to put little brother in his place...
GO CANES!!!

True dat!!!!

Ohio_Cane

I don't know, but I do know I saw Morris go through progressions on Saturday. He may not do it on every play, but I saw him progress through at least 3 reads on different plays.

Funny how some people hear what they wanna hear? LOL

That's twice now U've basically called me a homer. LOL

I swear they were talking about that while Wake was on offense and brought it up because of how they completely changed their offense mid-season.

Never said I couldn't be wrong.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | October 28, 2013 at 09:23 AM


They were referring to Morris but they were talking about the offense in the final drive of the UNC game . Simplified to two reads and a check down on plays that morris specifically liked to run. They haven't dumbed down the offense for the whole game... I hope anyway.

Camron Ghorbi ‏@CamronGhorbi 1m

WOW! 2012 - UM had 985 rushing yards by Game 8 (1503 this year) & had allowed 1776 (992 this year)...53% increase on O, 44% decrease on D

Interesting note from @ChrisYandle's newest Game Notes - Miami is just 234 yards short of eclipsing its 2012 rushing yards total (1,737)

SOUP

U just gotta know that it MUST be HATE week when U got Keoki coming around the blog on the regular. LOL

P.S people please do not post come game day leave the new blog for me!

5. Baylor. Call us after the next three games.

Posted by: LB | October 28, 2013 at 09:09 AM

Exactly, no quality wins

Posted by: Keoki | October 28, 2013 at 09:12 AM

The same can be said for Miami lol..Florida is now 4-3 and our next 3 games will be very tough.

Posted by: UMike | October 28, 2013 at 09:22 AM

I would slightly disagree because we played The Turds when they were #12 ranked and HEALTHY w/ Driskel. They are not even close to where they were.

I do see your point about us, but let's see after this weekend.

UpNorthCane27

LB no need to be rational our CANES are going to take care of fswhoo and we are gonna shock the nation and some of the bloggers here on canespace.

I've been one of Morris's biggest critics this year, but i believe the young man has one of thsoe special nights stored for us come 8:00 on saturday. Duke will be Duke and will take care of business. Perryman and McCord will deliver some mean hit's on winston.

GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S people please do not post come game day leave the new blog for me!
