Miami will win this game no matter how sloppy they play.

roachcane77

"Simply put, that just cannot happen."

5th!! we never lose when I am 5th!!!

CaneRock

MOSS! SEIS!

canesteeler

The offense needs to put up 35-42 points today for the Canes to win. Go CANES!

CGNC

Alright -headed to the gym. I remember back in 2006 I think when a very disjointed Canes team played Duke at Duke. End of the 4th, Duke was marching down the field looking like they were going to win the game - even had police come out and surround the field. Last minute int by Willie Cooper.

GO CANES! Rise to the occasion!

canezilla

DAMN UP NORTH U JUST COULDN'T WAKE UP EARLY ENOUGH AND BE FIRST COMMENT. STILL SAY WE WIN THO 28-17

SOUP

Please, God, please...

LMBO! IIRC, didn't Cooper pull His hammy on that play...

dj moonbat

I was a bit surprised to learn that Duke had EVER beaten Miami. (1976.)

So we can't pretend it's literally impossible -- it's happened before. Of course, that was before Miami grew up. But still.

Miami didn't exactly crush Duke last year, and if they bring the level of play they brought last week, I have to worry about the outcome.

If that is the case I would yank whatever player or players that have quit on the team scholarship and kick them off the team. Dont have time for losers.

SOUP

Y'all better hope Miami wins today because the end of Canespace as we know it could be right around the corner in Durham, NC.

I'm pretty sure nobody 'round these parts is hoping for anything else...

SOUP

Moonbat...U reckon?

SOUP

I conducted extensive research and completed a scientific study of the reason why Miami lost to FSU and VT.

Here is what I discovered:

1. We lost to FSU because I wore the wrong hat. That loss is on me.

2. We lost to VT because I wore the wrong shirt. That loss also is on me.

I will not make that same mistake today.

roachcane77

I KNEW there was a bigger reason!

Get your ACT TOGETHER SOUP! (LOL)

I was going to put on the same shirt i wore for the FSU and VT games and said I cant do that today. So I changed shirts. Yes I am superstitious. Go Canes! Beat Duke!

roachcane77

I don't know Terrance… Be careful… Now that we know it was SOUP that screwed up… YOU changing could screw up today!

It's that whole "Butterfly Effect" I think...

48-14 Canes !!!

Terrance Sullivan

SMH we are 123rd out of 125 teams in the country in time of possession on offense averaging 25:30 seconds for a team with a veteran offense that is a complete dumpster fire. We have to be much better than this nonsense. Go Canes! Beat Duke!

Surfercane

I will be shocked if Canes lose this game dammit! I'm hopeful Canes come out on fire! I believe baby!

Go CANES!!!!!!!!

LA3

Duke is fired up and ready for this.....this game has PROGRAM changing potential for them! Everyone is doubting their VT win because of to's.
If they line up and flat out beat Miami, then it will be biggest win in DUKE FOOTBALL PROGRAM history.

If Duke scores more than 27, the Canes will lose.

Today we find out if Big Al has control of the ship.....And he better let them players play...PLAY TO WIN...because this has potential to be one of the worst PROGRAM loses for CANES...

Canes 30, PUKE 24.

CaneRock

A team with a "high state of MORALE" will BALL OUT & THAT can overcome talent (IF! the talent gap between the two teams isn't TOO great). If you have your talent SUCKS - you ain't gotta chance ANYWAY (that's where the "Jimmys & Joes" part comes into play).

Remember...The "problem" is NOT to beat teams that you are BETTER than (lose too many of them & you get FIRED!). The PROBLEM is to beat teams that are EQUAL (or a lil' bit better) to you. This is where you MUST play with a HIGHER DEGREE of "MORALE", or, MORE motivated:

LA3

Entire GAME DAY crew picked Puke!
Even said did you EVER think you would say Puke over Miami in Football!

That is double kick in the nuts!

LETS GO CANES!

SOUP

Dwayne Johnson ‏@TheRock 30m

USC Head Coach Ed Orgeron was my coach at Miami. Tough, intense & treats players like his sons.

I just threw up a little in my mouth.

ALL OF THE GAMEDAY CREW PICKED DUKE!!! TIME TO SHOW UP BOYS. WE WILL WIN!!!

Is Grace redshirted?
Is Jack that much better and playing as freshman?

#16 Myles Jack LB Bellevue, WA

4.4


LA3

I just threw up a little in my mouth.

Posted by: SOUP

I threw up and $hit myself at same time.

THERE will be COMPLETE melt down if CANES don't win.
It is time to play angry and intense.
If our Def LB and DB can't light up Puke, then they should be ashamed.
it is about PRIDE now....

I don't care who has ball or what should be happening. HIT everything that moves! BLOW UP anyone brave enough to cross the middle.
Get a FLAG....Set a message. That crap is not going to work anymore.
And if DNO can't call the game....then the BOYZ need to take control on their own. Man up and BALL!

TonyCane

I refuse to accept that Duke will win. I refuse to accept that Miami will win a close game. We need a crushing, blowout win. Accept nothing less, and don't deserve victory. Demand it!

LA3

USC Head Coach Ed Orgeron was my coach at Miami. Tough, intense & treats players like his sons.

He will NOT get the JOB.....

I say Al needs to bring him back to the U.

LA3

It's TIME.....

AL needs to lose the TIE.
No man coaching the CANES should be in a TIE.
Fear the TIE means fear NOTHING.
If kids take on coaches lead....
the TIE has to go.
AL needs to let kids play loose and aggressive....

Al is not going anywhere...but we can start BURN THE TIE!

dj moonbat

I say Al needs to bring [Orgeron] back to the U.

Posted by: LA3 | November 16, 2013 at 12:17 PM


Ed seems to get into a lot of trouble.

canezilla

LA3 WHAT DID HE COACH IN MIAMI? DUDE SOUNDS LIKE A COACH WITH THAT VOICE

Terrance Sullivan

Zilla Coach O coached Defensive line at Miami in the 80's under Jimmy.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup the Eagle has landed. Thank U bruh!

LA3

Eds..... (Butch get in trouble too)

1988-1992 At U. D line Coach.


1988 he began his time with the Miami Hurricanes under Jimmy Johnson and Dennis Erickson, spending four of those as Defensive Line Coach, where he coached eight All-Americans, including NFL first rounders Cortez Kennedy, Russell Maryland and Warren Sapp. While he coached there, Miami won two national championships (1989 and 1991). During this time that Orgeron successfully recruited a young Dwayne Johnson to play defensive line for the Hurricanes.

Starting in 1991, a series of personal problems began to affect his career at Miami: a Dade County woman filed a restraining order accusing him of repeated violence and in July 1992, Orgeron was arrested for his part in a bar fight in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Orgeron acknowledged he had been intoxicated that night and grew angry when not allowed inside to retrieve his credit card.[6] In October 1992, Orgeron took a leave of absence from Miami for personal reasons; the departure was permanent and he was replaced by assistant Randy Shannon.[7] Taking a time off from coaching, Orgeron worked on his personal life: the permanent injunction was rescinded and felony second-degree battery charges were dropped.[6] He stayed with his parents in Larose, and credits his father for helping him get his life in order.

Something like that. The thing I mostly remember was a sick feeling watching the field rimmed with cops because they were on their way to beating us and probably tearing down the goal posts.

Like I said...if we can't get rid of DNO...we need to get TALENT around them.
And ED O is a recruiting MONSTER!

Sound good. I know the hurricane pub in longwood hosts miami games so perhaps that would be a good spot. They have good wings there too

Canezitis

The last 4 games and the struggles defensively is on everyone's hands, but as a coach it is your job to have your team prepared: tackling fundamentals, watching film and learning the offenses tendacies and applying it to the field, playing balls to the wall because you're so prepared all you do is react and have to think. That's another reason we look slow on defense- we are not reacting, we're thinking. That's all on coach D. That is why he has to go. I can accept losing for now if it's just because we're totally lacking the talent at every position on defense, but that is not the case. His scheme and appearently his preparation skills are mediocre at best.
I sincerely hope Al lit a fire in his a$$ this week and we see a different, more aggressive team today, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I'll have to get some blood pressure meds if I keep doing that.

GO CANES, PLEASE, for the love of God do not lose to Duke!
I feel for Al if we do.

Canezitis

* not have to think

Wearing my away ken Dorsey jersey today- we win 35-28!
