Can't sleep?

READY...

Then why don't we get together and have a party? []_[]

Old Skool

Morning crew ready for action

Old Skool

The Seminoles suspend Winston for the whole game for yelling obscenities, so at FSU words matter more than actions.

Or perhaps it's simply that in Tallahassee "No" means "Yes" whereas c*** still means c***

Good morning!
Go Canes!!

AfriCane

He's only suspended for a half, not a whole game.

GOOD MOVE BY FSU HIGHER UPS. EVERYBODY WAS SAYING HE SHOULD BE OUT FOR THE WHOLE GAME. FSU JUST TRYING TO SAVE FACE BY MAKING HIM SIT OUT THE WHOLE GAME..GOOD FOR HIS GOOFY ASS.

Game day blog at 6 PM.

Be Calm and Cane On!

Tell Tell Signs....

Duke needs 3 or 4 runs for over 20 yards for us to get a "W"!

Neb will stack the box. And we will have to be able to run the ball. If most of Duke's runs are neg or 1-3 yard gains, then we will struggle.

Let's GO CANES!

We don't have to be able to run the ball. We have to be able to move the ball. If they're committed to stopping the run, we'd be foolish not to take what they're giving us.

If they get tired of being beaten by Dorsett and Coley (and screens to Duke), they'll adjust, and we'll run on them. But if they stay committed, and we keep throwing to Dorsett and Coley (and screens to Duke), we'll still be moving the ball.

WE ARE GOING TO SEE NEBRASKA RUN THE SAME D THAT LOUISVILLE USED VS US.. STACK THE BOX AND MAKE HIM THROW.. WOULD BE NICE TO SEE ALOT OF TIGHT ENDS USED THIS GAME

UMike

Did I read Thomas is not playing tonight? I thought with AQM gone he would see more time... or did I read it wrong?

VA Cane

Little College Game Day.

Herbie already apologizing for Winston. Bottom line, he is a con artist a liar a criminal. He raped that girl, it was covered up by the school and cops so they could win another title by cheating. People know FSU is full of dumbass players who think they are bad. They are not s**t. Then he steals food, he knows he did and goes on tv and says in his trained voice let the haters hate. BS!!! It is not hating you, it is your crimes people hate. Take that damn rag off your head you damn fool criminal!!!!!!

Society takes care of certain people; just like Rice and Winston. You do something like these 2 losers did, you should lose privledge, and pay the price....regardless of race creed color background or religion. Justice is supposed to be for all Dumbass Winston Zimmerman and the Cop in MO kill and rape; the victim, Trevon and Mike are raped or dead.....and no voice for them. BS. Very bad precedents, yet they continue.

Sorry, I feel that way for innocent people.

Go Canes, play hard today Beat Big Red!!!!!

VA Cane

You know they want to take Duke out; get to the TEs, and some screens....but even more important, protect QB....get it down the field...their DBs aint so hot with our speed. That spreads them out....then back to Duke....then down filed.....make them give you things.

dj moonbat

I haven't actually seen Nebraska play this year. And their level of competition makes it impossible to judge from scores/stats whether they're actually any good. Are they?

sleazavitch

Ed Reed

VA Cane

I think they are about our level....talent but flawed schemes, stupid penalties, poor clock management, average staff...Pellini is an idiot the way he acts....they are more physical and stronger bigger...they bully you up front. Game will be won and tone set up front. You come out in that hostile backyard....punch them in the damn mouth for 60!!!!!!

And Ray Lewis.

Go Canes

I saw the whole McNeese game.

They don't have the athletes to stack the box like Louisville did. They lack speed at linebacker to cover any skill player we have in space. They got killed by the short passing game, I would be very surprised if we didn't follow the same game plan with a few long throws mixed in.

We are not going to try to pound them, this game is going to come down to Kaaya executing the short to intermediate passing game effectively.

VA Cane

Before the football season, he said he had matured, learned what it takes to be a leader and understood that he needed to be more careful in his personal life.

The school president and AD are admonishing him for doing just the opposite.

''You know you have to overcome adversity, and that's one thing at Florida State that we do,'' Winston said Wednesday. ''We work on overcoming adversity. When I do get my opportunity to play, I'm going to do everything I can because I have to accept it.

''That's going to eat me up because I want to be out there on the field. I want to be out on the field with my team, but I did something so I have to accept the consequences.''

Thats coaching the criminal up; he cannot spell half these words. Dumbass criminal!!!!

YooperCane

Reports of a category 5 Hurricanes to hit Lincoln, Nebraska at 8 PM tonight! Lets do this...Go Canez!

VA Cane

Dumbo is no more focused on developing kids than Dad Gummit was....and at one time we did the same stuff. I will give RS and Golden props as well as Donna; they think about the kids as people first regardless of their meaning to the team. Olsen had his chances, he screwed up and is gone, same with Figs and Blue....they should be out. These people are given an opportunity to play a game, but also get a great education....well at least at UM don't know about FSU....a goat could get in. And yes people make mistakes and giving people chances is fine...but not Steve Howe chances.

Winston is a criminal, will not get a degree....he is stupid. Maybe DP can draw a bead on him; I would relish the thought of pounding him with a monster hit that said wake up welcome to the real world called life!!!!

VA Cane

DJ, I have said that more than once...some people don't like it. I cringe when I hear him talk about God.....and what he does not permit. Nuff said!!!!

I think about that, Trevon M, M Brown......like Marvin Gaye said..."God knows where we're heading"
in Inner City Blues

VA Cane


Here's where we are headed...how does this happen? What do people think? I phones crab legs damn!!!!


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Former NBA guard Rex Chapman has been arrested for allegedly shoplifting $14,000 worth of merchandise from an Apple store in Scottsdale and then selling the items at a pawn shop.

Police took the 46-year-old Chapman into custody Friday afternoon after officers stopped his vehicle in northeast Scottsdale.

They say he's being held on suspicion of nine counts of organized retail theft and five counts of trafficking in stolen property.

Police say Chapman made it appear he was using the store's self-checkout, but left without paying.

He allegedly stole from the store seven times and sold the items for cash.

Chapman, a former Kentucky star, was a first-round draft pick of Charlotte in 1988. He also played for Washington, Miami and Phoenix in a 12-year NBA career that ended in 2000.

VACane...and how many chances did Beamer give Marcus Vick again? As far as College athletics is concerned, that soapbox ain't got enough traction for anybody to stand on.

Let's Go Canes! Beat Nebraska! Miami 31 Nebraska 30.

I have a very strong suspicion something much bigger is going to come out about Winston sometime in the very near future.

There is no way FSU just had a crisis of conscience for the first time ever and decided to extend his suspension unless something else has arisen.

It would make sense. I mean, shouting obscenities in public isn't *nothing*, but it's not the kind of thing that gets a guy benched for the entirety of the Clemson game.

I guess there's a tiny possibility that there's so much football-related malfeasance in the news right now that FSU needed some breathing room, but I'd guess you're right, that Winston's obviously poor impulse control has another shoe waiting to drop out there.

Jay

Kaaya, this entire games rests on your performance. This is what you came to Miami for. Don't ignore the pressure, embrace it. Champions are built that way. Cement your Hurricane legacy in this game by doing what you know what to do and playing how you know how to play. Lean on your teammates and coaches, but rise up to the challenge yourself and lead us to victory. Go Canes!

LA3

DJ and VA I agree with you both.
"Take what they give us".....
BUT I have not seen Coach C and O follow that approach much...play calling wise.
Tend to stick with Pound Pound and 3rd Long Pass.

Our "routes" seem to be basic and simple. Easy to read and defend. Need something more. If we stay simple, I hope we have some max protects with "fly" routes on the outside and sneak the TE up the seam. Make S make choice on who to cover.

Blinky Brad Kaaya....Yes a lot rests on him today. I want to see if he can make down field throws with tight coverage. (Ark. St. passes were easy and he missed a few wide open ones).

CaneRock

I look for the usual suspects to have a good game tonight...Berrios,Dorsett, & Walford. Walford looks quicker off the line this season.

And I look for DP52 to have His Ray Lewis vs Eddie George moment against Abdullah.

Does this suspicion have anything to do with all the reporting that says something big is about to come out? hahaha

jcane

Blah, blah:

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/74688/take-two-miami-nebraska-return-to-glory

Guess which of the two covers the Big Ten vs. the ACC, and for that matter, which one went to Nebraska vs., ahem, PSU.

With the right game plan, better passing with protection and speed at skill positions, there's no reason the U can't win this one, which would be huge going forward (ie gotta win vs. top 25 teams more often). Overall there is fairly equal talent both ways, but if Kaaya has grown enough and if the staff lets him throw some, who knows??

Great day all, and better night!

UMike

I dont care who plays big or who steps up, I just want to be happy tonight when I go to bed and not dam near depressed like after the Louisville game. Lets Go Canes!!!!

VACane...and how many chances did Beamer give Marcus Vick again? As far as College athletics is concerned, that soapbox ain't got enough traction for anybody to stand on.

Never liked Vick....he was an asshole and he was not that good of a player. Giving the fans in WVA the finger? Really? He is lucky fooling with those people....its easy to get shot up there. They dont just shoot you....they come get you, take you up in the hills and you never are heard from again!!! What a moron!!! Stomping that guy? idiot. He never went to class, he did not do shit. Marcus still hanging out in Newport News area....a loser banger wanna be dumbass!!! Beamer is an average coach; I played for him in HS. Heres the hint CR...he's another jerkoff who thinks winning is more important that character....a liberal!!!!! Marcus just got hauled back into court in Bburg....and my high school classmate was the judge...he told that dumbass marble mouth that justice has a long arm....he issued bench warrants cuase MV thought he could not face stuff he did in Bburg. Thug wanna be piece of garbage....just like marble mouth Winston. He is an idiot, DP52 put a target on him....I love seeing guys like him get a lick that puts him to sleep.

If we're hearing "Johnson for 3 yards" a lot, we're going to have a bad day.

But I don't think the evidence suggests that Coley doesn't like to air it out. Certainly, he let Morris spray the ball around all last season. He (or more likely, Golden) just doesn't want *Kayaa* to air it out -- or at least, didn't until last week.

He'll have to start letting Kayaa loose, though, because otherwise the Louisville blueprint will continue to work all season long. The only way for UM to become a balanced offense is to prove to teams that stacking the box is a bad idea.

So, yeah, Kayaa is the key to the game. Unless Coley keeps calling plays to keep him out of trouble.

UpNorthCane27

Sooo is chad thomas playing tonight or not?

CaneRock

SMDH!...where was all this media outrage when baseball players were beating their wives. Like DV just became an epidemic with this slate of DV cases against NFL players.

MLB? Where was all this outrage when baseball players were beating up their wives? Hell, Bobby Cox beat the hell outta His wife, but I don't see His name being brought up as a "blast from the past".

And where's the outrage in the NBA, doesn't Jason Kidd have several DV charges, but yet He's a HC?


Soccer? Hope Solo?...why doesn't Nike pull Her endorsement...

TonyCane

Dj, talent wise the Huskers are similar to the 2011 Hurricanes. The majority of the best talent are juniors and seniors, I think.

Terrance Sullivan

Great point Rock!

BEERicane

Ouch. Miami 1-15 over last 16 games vs ranked teams on the road. Gameday all picking Huskers in a blowout.

LA3

just want to be happy tonight when I go to bed and not dam near depressed like after the Louisville game. Lets Go Canes!!!! UMIKE.

Hell, I want the same thing BUT because we have gotten spanked on national TV last 3 big game.
FSU, LVille, LVille,.....

While Brad may be the key....THIS my friends is a GAME that will define Big Al Golden future! If the Canes come out and are out played, out coached, and show poorly, then Golden will have fire storm.
And he and his crew better have 2nd half plan and adjustments ready!!!! Because what may worked or did not work in 1st half will most likely NOT work in 2nd. Bo is jerk but he will make adjustments and have new looks in 2nd half!

VA Cane

CR you are spot on...I am back to liberty and justice for all!!!!! It should be the same regardless of anything!!! It is wrong no matter what!!!!

Thats why I say Trevon, M Brown the girl with Jameis Marblehead.....no justice for the victims!!! It is a society problem, and sports are part of it but not the only part!!!!!


Their QB can and will run, good tailback. The run is their base....they can throw but they are gonna pound it with a big corn fed front line. D are hitters....and they are going to come after BK. True freshman, loud rowdy place, basic FUNDAMENTAL power football on both sides of the ball....we are smallish on our lines, and the O line is slow as molasses....soft shoe shufflers.....we have a lot against us. We have to step up and be tough FIGHT on Sat night.

By the way, we are 1-15 on the road against ranked opponents in last 16 games....whereas we used to thrive on this situation shut em down shut their mouths......it is our Achilles Heel now!!!!! We must play Big Boy Ball 2nite!!!!!

VA Cane

Bo is jerk but he will make adjustments and have new looks in 2nd half!

Well put. He is a nut and a jerk, but he will bring it tonight. They are very physical; we are smallish, not so physical.....our D line is so far off the ball LBs corners back....they get running downhill its a mismatch. Our sieve line shows up shuffling their feet, spinning their wheels, not moving running driving....its gonna be tough!!

VA Cane

We find out how physical we wanna be tonight......cool Sept night, out in the midwest where its still like the 1960s....Sat night fight at the corner bar? Who is tougher?

SJMPARMAN

I don't know if he game day crew picking us was bad enough but the camera man, a Canes fan, called us the "Candy Canes" because of the lack of success on the road. Ouch. I have seen some of both Nebraska games the past two weeks. I can't really get a feel for whether they are that good or their competition that bad. But Lincoln is a tough tough place to get a W. I want us to be at least competitive. I got to admit that I have my doubts about our ability to do that in Lincoln.
