No way Williams plays. Why would he play when we have a must-win vs VT? Only way he sees the field is if Morris can't go. We beat VT, we win the coastal.

BEERicane

Next week will show how far we've come and how good a leader Golden is. If these guys put that embarrassing loss behind em and show up for VT, this team had come a long way in the maturity department.

Montreal-Cane

Agree. VT is the most important game of the season...

May be we will see how good is Walter Tucker.
I don't trust Gus the Bus "yet".

VA Cane

WWIN,

I always defer to other teams. I try to point out their strengths, their key players, their tendencies and tell my guys that we have to play our game; we know what their game is, we go with our plan to execute our game, and our plan to disrupt their plan.

Last night my opponent wanted to line up wide and throw....they lined up 5 a lot, and we manned the heck out of them, soon they had to keep a back in so I had 4 in man the rest going after people. We disrupted the game plan of a pretty decent team.....in my book they are all good else they would not be here. We don't talk or comment we just bring it with all we have.

I can't bring myself to think about how bad last night would've looked without Hurns.

You ain't never lied, we probably would've got blanked if it wasn't for Hurns.

Pittsburgh weather predictions for Nov 29th.
High 38. Low 24 with considerable cloudiness.
Durham- High 61. Low 31 and sunny.

Montreal-Cane

Calling Dalvin Cook...We need you next year and you will see the field a lot in 2014. Muschamp is a born loser and we saw it again yesterday on National TV. Canes will win the NC in 2015 and give FSU a correction after two recruiting class cleared of the NCAA cloud....

Canesteeler

I realize both football teams I have passion for have terrible pass rushes. The D lines for the Steelers and Canes rush the QB as if getting sacks are illegal.

Everyone STOP the NEW DC talk… AG would not get rid of D'No even if Saban himself decided to step down as Alabama's head coach to come coach our D.

College roommate, best man in his wedding… AG's defended him EVERYTIME he's been questioned about him… EVERYTIME!

Not happening, never, nada, get over it… as long as AG is here… No'D is here. PERIOD.

(Sorry to say… )

roachcane77

P.S. Somebody already said it… Coley is a great recruiter… KEEP HIM. But if Jedd Fisch becomes available… GET HIM BACK!

jsy

Unless golden recruits to the point that we have first round talent at every position on defense we will never be elite with dno here. But this is typical golden. His mentality is reactive and not proactive. instead of cutting ties with dno snd his zone hes going to wait until the negativity from fans and boosters becomes so bad he has no choice to get rid of him instead of going out there and makinf changes. i say let barrow call plays he cant possible be worse than Dno. This is easily seen in the make up of the team we always wait to be punched in the face and then adjust instead of coming out swinging. When he said we need to take it to the fourth quarter I knew we lost. The only way a huge underdog wins is going all In with nothing to lose. A three td dog on the road does not win by playing soft hoping the other team messes up. We need to force the action. We play scared and that is goldens biggest flaw. Losing the game doesn't bother me bc there is no shane losing to something better than u, what pisses me off is the fact that fsu is looking forward to playing us again. We need the mentality that even if we lose we give them such hell that their will to play us is gone.

Morris hasn't been a go all year! LOL

Did you not hear when Soup said multiple inside sources said Williams is better than Morris???

Account Deleted

Forgot (or wanted to forget) walford last night. we finally get a game where we throw to the TE and he's got no hands at all play after play.

I've christened him "Mr Bobbles". Although I suspect after last night we won"t be throwing many more hiss way. Time for another one of the TE's on the roster to step up.

WWIN

Helluva post!!! I stand behind everything you said

Been saying it all season, "Smilin Steven" is a bust this season. He'll still start the rest of the season but a shame we didn't go with williams before it began....

Clwtrdan

FSU could conceivably play for a national championship. Alabama has LSU next week plus at Miss State and at Auburn and Oregon is at Stanford next week. That was a very good team that beat us last night and they play nobody else any good except a depleted Florida in G-ville the last game of the regular season. We could really be a spoiler for them if we can win out. But we would have to step up big in the ACC game. We may get to see Walter Tucker, The Bus, or even Corn Elder before the year is through. Otherwise it's Crawford and Clements. Eduardo will definitely get a lot more plays. Next man up.....

mountain cane

No way you change qbs at this point. You ride him to the end.

Morris is not a good reader of defenses or decision maker. Not sure how much of his current throwing slump is ankle related or other. The underthrow of wide open Coley was appalling.

VT has a good defense, as usual. They will stop the run and force Morris to beat them Logan Thomas is also an erratic qb who can't read defenses. We need to pressure him into errors or this could end badly.

We open as 6 point favorites.

BEERicane

"Inside sources" don't know crap. These are the same ones who said the defensive game plan would be different for FSU. Same for the offense. The only thing inside about that "info" is inside the realm of fantasy.

WWIN

Beer, you been drinking too much of yo name. LOL

No way in hell playing Williams would make our situation any worse than what it is. It sends the message to Morris and all our qb's that that kind of play is unacceptable. It gives Williams experience for next year.

Stop trying to force a key into a keyhole that it doesn't fit in

Aren't those two paragraphs a contradiction of each other??? LMHO

mountain cane

No Willie, they aren't. The favorite guy in town is always the back-up qb. I know you and many others here love Williams. I find him very unathletic and don't think he will be the qb next year.

I think Morris gives us the best chance to win now, which is what matters when 7-1.

BEERicane

WWiN,

I think Morris played pretty OK last night. A few second half mistakes, to be sure. But losing duke and throwing in a new QB against a good D would be too much for Williams to handle. We would lose that game. This is Morris' team and gives us the best chance to win vs the Turkeys.

Canesteeler

I think at some point if Morris continues to struggle you have to give Williams a shot. VT is going to load the box and blitz the shit out of us. Finally I can relax, my son and his friends arrived home safely from Tally.

WWIN

Mountain, they actually are. Williams should play due to the reasons you stated in your second paragraph.

Let me make this clear, last year I was saying DO NOT put Williams in the game, he was horrible. This year the table has turned, one off-season can make a huge difference.

I'm not saying lets make Williams our starting qb, I'm saying if Morris starts doing what he does against va tech, lets give Williams a CHANCE. And if Williams can't get the job done put Morris back in, if he does get the job done then you open up your qb competition after the game.That's FAIR as it gets. Then you want look dumb as a coach for not at least trying something else and you don't have to worry about people talking about playing the back-up anymore.

Beer, you are correct, Morris did play good the first half I'll even go as far as saying his best half of his career considering it was against a good defense. But, he's played 6 bad GAMES vs 1 good HALF.

BEERicane

Point taken WWiN.

I'd agree that an in game switcher-oo is appropriate if Morris doesn't play up to snuff. That should be applicable to any and all positions/players in any team sport.

WWIN

Beer, now we on the same page. EVERY job should be on the line, coaches included too!

FSU BIGGEST SHIT TALKING FANS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HANDS DOWN.HAD A GREAT TIME TAILGATING IN TALLY.EVERY GAME FROM HERE OUT IS OUR BIGGEST GAME.. VT IS AT 7PM

CGNC

The game to have put Williams in for experience was probably the USF game

CGNC

Canesteeler - glad your son made it back ok. Same with you Zilla

VfB_Cane

This NFL week shows all the troubles we've had these past years: Lamar Miller had 105 yards rushing on Thursday, today Mike James has 140 after three quarters.
One might think our rushing attack 2 or 3 years ago must have been unstopable. However, as we all know, it was mediocre at best.
So, on top of not having great talent across the board, we also failed to get the maximum out of the playmakers on our roster.
I hope that Golden & Co. will get this thing turned around so we won't sit here on a Sunday three years from today wondering how we never won a conference title with all those future pros on our team.

WWIN

CGNC, Williams played that game and did good

Shout out to Soup and Old School tailgating yesterday with Ricky, Carlos, Steffan, & I.

We have stay healthy, blitz more often, ride Morris & Crawford, and focus on one game at a time.

F' V'Tech!
GO CANES!!!

Texascane

VfB- I'll give you an even better one...Chase Ford (The TE that never could block or catch at Miami) is playing TE for the Vikings.

Terrance Sullivan

Sarasota - I started thinking HOW LONG it has actually been.....for me I knew something was up when LSU stomped us in the bowl game - 03 I think?

Posted by: CGNC | November 03, 2013 at 08:48 AM
CGNC that was 2005. I was there in the Georgias Dome completely pissed off with another 25,000 Canes fans! 2003 was our last great year going 11-2 winning the Big East and the Orange Bowl against FSU 16-14. 2004 We beat the Florida Crocs in the Peach Bowl and finished 9-3. Mad Props to Native Cane, Soup, and Old Skool U guys rock. It was cool hanging with Zilla at the game. and the rest of the CanesFam. Our Goals are still attainable winning the ACC Coastal, Winning a Bowl Game if I had to guess now the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl on New Years Eve in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome, and to win 10 plus games. something we havent done since 2003. Go Canes. Hate to hear that about Randy Duke Johnson. Wishing that young man a healthy recovery. Allen Hurns did step up and play really well. Gonna need the recievers and running backs to step up in the place of Duke and Dorsett.

CGNC

WWIN - he didn't start though, did he? Coming in to mop up is different. Oh, if you and I were coaches.....LOL

TexasCane - say it ain't so! Chase Ford? Wow.

CGNC

TSully - LOL feels like that long. I am referring to it as our lost decade

I would love it if UM ended up in the Peach Bowl! The dome is a 20 minute train ride for me from Roswell.

Great meeting you.

That was some excellent grilled pineapple and one kick ass shot.

I should have come over and gotten you to try Native's ribs -- Crispy on the outside moist and juicy inside. The man turns a barbecue brush into a magic wand.

Would you come up Terrance?

BEERicane

Biggest shit talking fans in football? That would be us! I doubt there are as many fights at games tailgates anywhere as there are in Miami. It's one of the things I love about the U. You talk shit in our house and disrespect us you will pay.

The Herb says it's time to be realist.
1.Our defense is loaded with guys that have played a lot of football. Think about it, Gaines, Highsmith, Rodgers, Chicklo, Robinson, Porter, Pierre, Green, Renfro, Armbrister, Cain, Perryman, these guys are not greenhorns but what it does say is that somewhere the scouting combines and star makers got it right on most of these guys. That group measures out to 3 stars and average don't get it when you play teams that have elite talent. You would think that a team that lost 11 guys to the draft and started a RS Freshman QB wouldn't be that good but what it does tell me is that they have talent stock piled the way we used too! Ain't really no use in complaining when it comes down to it, you have to play the hand we dealt ourselves and as Dandy Shannon once said "We can't get anybody off the waiver wire to help us. If we take care of our problems in recruiting, we wouldn't be in this situation but we've had to beg and scrap just to get a DT to come here and basically take cast offs and flip guys who were headed to 2ND rate schools.
We need serious help on the DL, LB, Wr & a bigger RB. We are all excited that Yearby is coming along with Powell but they too are light weights. Unless we are going to switch over and join the ranks of the Spread option teams, then we need to get us a big bruiser RB. FSU is a good team, that lost 3/4 of their coaching staff and are still steam rolling along and would they beat Bama, No, Saban is the man when it comes to stopping a team, especially giving him a month to prepare.
Does Deno have to go, that answer is now clear, to The Herb, yes he does. Playing passive just to hold teams to FG's is Puss ball. The bend but don't break, especially with a veteran defensive unit, is pure powder puff football. No guts no glory. Those guys we have in the secondary, especially those sophs, are going to remember the toasting their getting because our pass rush suks. No Man is an island unless you play in DENO's defensive scheme.

BEERicane

His name is D?No!

VA Cane

Canesteeler glad the young men got home ok. If last night was not bad enough your steelers and my raiders both are horrible. Hey at least the U is 7-1. Damn our pro teams are bad LOL!!!!!

Sarasota 'cane

Looks like Sileo may have Tweeted himself out of another job. What a moron!
He offered a $1000.00 bounty for any cane player who takes out Freeman if UM and FSU meet in the ACCCG. A bunch of FSU player families read it and now it's viral. His program director at his second rate sports channel has had to apologize and said he would investigate. Doesn't look good for Dan.
