Handegg it is then

UMike, what you think of all that fillin' the roster with more 4*s, before we can be a NC contender again?

In relation to FSU, maybe, but other than that, I think it's HOGWASH!

UMike

CR, as long as D'No is the DC, we could fill the D with all 4 and 5 stars and probable be middle of the road. I didnt see it before, but the more its been talked about the more I think it is true... this staff is NOT letting the kids loose. If you are going to recruit South Florida kids, you need to let them play with that South Florida mentality. Louisville is a good example of this. Those kids straight punked us. So I guess it doesnt matter if we bring in 3 stars players or 4 star players. It has to be the RIGHT player and then he has to be coached up.

YUP!

UMike

What good is a 4-Star, hard hitting safety like Deon Bush when is is 40 yards from the LOS lol... You can bring in all the 4-Star guys you want, but if they are not used right it does not matter. Someone like Perryman who is lucky to play LB, excels despite the DC, not because of them.

DAMN!...YUP! again! LMAO!


UMike

I just hating seeing Miami kids play like Miami kids at every school BUT Miami.

SinisterCane

Golden/Nofense need to let these young men play. Bush, Aqam and Figs are vicious hitters, take them off the PSU leash off em' and let them start droppin' warheads on foreheads to the point where opposing player's parents start praying to god that their son are ok

Terrance Sullivan

I completely agree with the above posts. Let the boys do they thang. We want to see a really agressive defense. Balanced with a legitimate offense thats not gonna spoil the defensive efforts.

Da U N Houston

Sorry, but until we can get or coach up our DL to win one on one battles we will play soft/back. Even blitzing LB's is tough b/c you'd have to bring 6 with only 5 in coverage. It all starts with the big boys on the line. Once we get them to apply pressure you will see our Defense play Miami ball.

With that, i do think our DB's are more capable of playing more man now with Safeties that have better range.

Mountain Cane

Agree soup on the irrationality of the intentional foul being used as an advantage.

I'd suggest the following:
1. All fouls in the last 2 minutes of the game are 2 shot fouls
2. The team fouled has the option of taking the 2 shots, or bringing the ball back in

UMike

Why would a team take the ball back in and NOT take the shots? That would be the dumbest move possible lol

UMike

I mean, I understand you keep possession, but there could be a turnover, offensive foul etc... I think you take the points. I know it slows the game to a grinding halt, but the team is reward with free throws allowing them to stretch their lead. But every sport has its thing. Like the intentional walk in baseball... I mean you can literally just not pitch to a guy because he is hitting to good lately lol

Mountain Cane

Umike, lots of reasons. The most obvious is that they fouled your worst free throw shooter.

UMike

Mountain... I guess... or maybe change it to where it is like a tech and you can choose who shoots lol

raizecane

Why do I feel like I am watching the "romper room" when seeing some of the back and forth comments going on for hours??? :-)

Vilma said nothing wrong at all I hate that ppl always make you apologize for not saying something the way they wanted you to...If you don't want my honest opinion then don't ask me...Vilma was right the guy won't be accepted as much as people believe he will be but at the same time how do you take a guy looking at you after a shower when you are admittedly Not Gay? Idk its kinda weird and I am not trying to be political because I can care less what a man or woman for that matter chooses to do when they close their door...but in relation to me and myself I'd have to look over my shoulder as well to make sure that he isn't chicken hawkn me...that is my Vilma take..

LOL at romper room reference Raize. Good one man.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Could you imagine the senior players response when the staff says we're gonna start the Freshman even though the Senior gives us the best chance to win. #canemutiny

Ohio_Cane

Lol, USF got a good one in Vincent Jackson Jr. *Sarcasm*

OFNC

I'm getting tired of the "bash the D and D'no" meme. We all saw what we saw last year. We also saw that even an "all big 10" DE couldn't show enough to get invited to the combine (nor could anyone else), and a VA sub DT could start for us. P52, a Jr, is the only one who could draw even honorable mention All-ACC. That presumably rates how individuals play, not the "scheme".

But, "safeties playing 40 yards off the ball" was the last straw! Who got the safety on the first play of the Bowl game? I watch the first half of the game again and I'm proud of the way the guys played on D. Best they looked since the FL game.

The game was lost when the coaches gambled at the 42, and the O couldn't pick up a yard. You think that didn't take some wind out of the sails of the D? The rest of the game just proved that Kehoe/Coley/Golden had no response to UL's jitterbug front seven. Our "massive" OL was just not smart/quick enough to adapt.

Rand Stevens

Coach L continues to amaze. The guy is simply one of the best HC's in the country. Dude is coaching his ass off. What he's doing with this patchwork group is remarkable. I thought we would have been lucky to sniff one ACC win this year.

L and his staff are simply the best group of coaches Miami mens sports have seen in well over a decade or more. Next year is going to be very, very exciting when the cavalry arrives.

UMike

Sorry OFNC.. did my comment push you over the edge there buddy? haha!! If you're "proud" of he defense, more power to you bro.... So you mean to tell me you didnt see a game where the safeties were even on the dam TV screen cause they were so far back? Looks like we got a Golden/D'No PR rep in the building lol

One play vs the whole season, anyway the defense did well enough is the first half to keep respectable

Dude on a Pale Horse

TV networks LOVE fouls at the end of basketball games. Commercial after commercial. Seriously I HATE the NBA finals. It turns into timeout ball. What would actually help the game is taking away all the timeouts. That way when a team goes on a run there's no entertainment killing timeout.

orange 'n green in the vein

EASY MONEY!

"UMike...This is a serious offer:

I will bet U $1000 that Miami will not lose 4 games. Are U ALL in?

Posted by: 86Cane | August 06, 2013 at 10:25 PM"

UMike

haha OGV

Mountain Cane

Dude, I hate the timeouts too. I think the commercials time they create drive the big $ college TV contracts. And, of course, the now highly paid HCs need to call time outs to impart their now highly valuable strategy.

I rarely watch anything but soccer live anymore. Just join basketball or football an hour or so in and you'll finish when the game concludes.

Pay up, 86cane!

herbieibis

If you want to know how a coach is a great coach, take a look at what coach Larry is doing with his team, taking not much and making something of it. Not saying these guys won't be great in a couple of years but he has them in virtually every game, something Golden could learn from.

WWIN

In basketball, intentional fouls receive two free throws and the ball back at half court. So really, at the end of games the defense is suppose to get super aggressive to take the basketball away from the offense and if they so happen to foul oh well its the end of the game anyways. So with the game on the line, shouldn't you get more aggressive to get the ball?

Go Canes

@Manny_Navarro: #Canes fans are going to love freshman RF Willie Abreu. Has been dreaming of becoming a #Cane since he was 6. Came to 15-20 games a year

@TexasCompliance: NCAA says SnapChat permissible to use for recruiting correspondence in Basketball & most other sports beg. 8/1. This should be interesting.

Ohio_Cane

30, U KNOW UMike didn't take that bet lol

Dude on a Pale Horse

How could anyone take that bet? I'd hate to put myself in a situation where I'd actually be routing for my team to lose.

Thanks for the thumbs up O_C.

Ohio_Cane

Any time, Dude.

Speaking of that, U all should watch that special "Irvin: My road to Canton". It aired last night on NFL Network. Really good hour showing his past

LA3

All of the lists are nice and FUN!
How about fastest DT.....10 yard burst off the line and getting to the QB?
Something EVERY Canes fan should be worried about.

1. Warren Sapp
2. Russell Maryland
3. Cortez Kennedy
4. Vince Wilfork-Big Fella was quicker at U.
5. William Joseph

Dude on a Pale Horse

Nice list LA3, but I'd take Big Vince off and put on a number of different guys. Orien Harris, Allen Bailey, Damione Lewis.

Ohio_Cane

Jerome Brown was quick as hell

Oof!

VA Cane


I hope they win in hoops....and I think it is a good game for young guys to play to develop stamina, hand eye coordination, hustle and a little banging.....but I do not watch it anymore.....I do not like the NBA at all....was a Knicks fan when they had real players long ago......Reed, Earl the Pearl, Clyde, Bradley, Debusschere, Lucas, Barnett.....Screw Mello....Id like to punch his face.....or better yet get him on a breakaway and TATUMIZE his AZZ!!! I despise the guy just a BS artist....I'd put his sorry azz DOWN...not into the seats....I'd take his head off!!!!
I like the contact sports better.....let the girls play basketball!!!!!

Dude on a Pale Horse

For some reason I thought Jerome Brown was already on the list?

Dude on a Pale Horse

How about your all time favorite play? I'll go with K2's 4th and 11 catch against WV in the Orange Bowl.
