That won't happen. We will beat Duke by a comfortable margin.

BigWindyCane1

Duke is both a "should win" and a"must win" game for the Canes. If the Canes win by a comfortable margin, then it will show growth and development in this team and put the Canes inthe ddrivers seat for a run at the Coastal. I saw many of these players play in high school and Golden and his coaches have recruited some really good players. The Canes are the most talented team in the Coastal and it's time for them to play like it.I think this D is too talented to allow DNo to hold them back any longer. I see the Canes D figuring some things out and coming to play like they are fighting against the world and I expect to see some steps forward in terms of making plays on D.

DBC

Let's see, a read option QB and a star running back. And D'Onofrio and Golden are as clueless as ever on the D. Sound familiar? We must match them score by score.
GO CANES!

Al Golden cannot survive anything but an ACC Title Game appearance, and that is as close to a 100% possibility if the Canes lose to Duke, as they will have already accumulated two conference losses before the beginning of October.

If we lose to Duke consecutive years, I'm going to cry.

I haven't decided if I can bring myself to watch the game tomorrow as I think it will take ten years off my life. Writing will be on the wall with a loss.

I'll be at the stadium formerly known as Joe Robbie to. To watch possibly the end of the Golden era. Till this team or this coaching staff can prove they can play defense, I'm not falling for it anymore. Like somebody posted earlier....I hate myself for thinking Duke is going to win.

fran

I intend to make my prediction. In 5-6 years probably my first. I say canes 42 Duke 31. Kaaya 3 TD passes. Would love to be there but the CANES can do it without me.
Go Canes

itsa_canes_thang

Can't believe we are calling this game a must win. It's Duke...

If we dont win by 14+ it will be a failure. Our athletes alone are better tha. Unfortunately the scheme handicaps our speed and athleticism.

Texican cane

In 20 years duke has 2 wins over teams ranked when they played them. Us last year was one of them. We must beat duke, too much talent not to. Bc of No'd we will need to outscore them, but kaaya and the O should be able to drop 40+ on them.
Go canes

360Cane

See. Even Des knows we don't have a "war daddy" on that line. People say we have better talent there but where? I don't see it and you can't tell me D'No is telling these lineman to lock and hold not lock and unload. No way am I buying that. If he is then he should of been fired before he was hired.

Well, they are 12-0 in regular season games. Won the coastal. They are ranked in the top 25. They are also 4-0 currently.

They sure as heck are doing a ton better than our team so I'd show them some respect. This []_[] has no respect cause no one can remember 2001.

Some of that we get back by putting Dorsett and Duke Johnson back on the field, so it's not so scary, and it's in Miami. All good.

But realistically, aside from a talent differential according to recruiting web sites, Miami has no tangible evidence suggesting they're the better football team. Duke won the most recent head-to-head matchup, by three scores. Duke has done better against common quality opponents like FSU and VT. Duke has a better W/L record both this year and last.

Hopefully, Miami will finally say "enough!" and lay down a data point that begins to reestablish the reality that the 'Canes are much better than the Blue Devils -- the reality most of us took for granted.

I'll probably say "of course we beat Duke" after the game, but I'm sure not going to say it right now.

tonycane

Dj, you are cherry picking to an extent. I view the VT result as anomalous due to the fact it was in a rainstorm. Against other common opponents

Vs Pitt
Miami wins 41-31
Duke loses 55-58

vs FSU
Miami loses 14-41
Duke loses 7-45

Vs UNC
Miami wins 27-25
Duke wins 25-23

vs GT
Miami wins 45-30
Duke loses 14-38

If Duke was so much better...if talent is meaningless and coaching is all that matters...and if their coach is one of the best...then why did they get obliterated by FSU?

Duke is a pretender and will be exposed tonight!

CaneRock

VT played in that same rainstorm. Matter of fact, VT scored more points against UM in the rain, than against Duke when it wasn't raining.

tonycane

True, but how many rainstorm games have you seen where one team is adversly affected? I think it happens a lot.

longtimecanefan

On line tonight....on and off this afternoon.

Must win..cant bear the thought and comments if we lose this one...,

longtimecanefan

Soup...heading out to pull weeds....hoping i dont need it later......

fmcane

Game day is upon us! Yes Duke is now a big game ... indicative of how far we have fallen and they have come.

Having a qb that will make his reads, duke and dorsett playing majes our O much better than last year. The D .... well im done with that horse.

Truly a must win to stay on some sort of track. If this team plays well in an acc championship game and wins a bowl no one will be talking early season woes

How many teams have a Cortez or Vince or rusty medaris ? There have been numerous posts about recruiting rankings and nfl draft picks the last 3-4 years. The common theme is we have higher ranked recruiting classes and more guys being drafted than the basketball school.
We agree No'd should be fired

Duke has a better coach than we do!

CaneRock

IDK who this "Free Man" that's supposed to make these tackle at, or behind the LOS is, but if He was referring to the FS, then that's the most incompetent statement made by a DC in the history of CFB! I ain't never heard of no ish like that.

Now do FSs make tackles at, or behind the LOS from time to time...yes. But to build your defense around that folly down for down is ASININE!

Like I've said, a FS stopping a play for an 8-10 yard gain is considered GOOD!

Beer, if Duke didn't fumble last week do you think we would have stopped them from scoring?

Yup. I firmly believe we pull out the W if that ball wasn't put on the turf. At the very least it would have stopped another national embarassment, which would have been nice.

Go 'canes!

WWIN

So you think the defense magically turns it around after having the ball ran down our throats and having the safeties 15yds back?

What about the plays leading up to that?

mi@mic@ne

I miss the days when the field had long dug out lines in it from our guys racing to the qb on pass rushes. Now the field is filled with pit holes because the d is taught to stand in a zone. They. Are good at digging their heels in the turf. Lol
But im at peace whether we win or lose because a loss takes us closer to ending this insanity. Im just trying to get Cutcliff vs Golden out of my head so I can get a little confidence.

VA Cane

Just in from a home field victory 24-7....4 and 0 looking good. We have given up a touchdown the last 2 weeks, but the teams we played were good teams. We run the ball protect it and play good D. We have mixed the throw in well, we are very balanced. We do not run trick and gimmick stuff very much; I see no need for it because we are so superior in real skills and can control tempo. We went no huddle several times go on first sound simple toss off tackle 4 or 5 in a row.....left them dazed and gasping...not in shape like us. Hot today!!!! We also ran a fake punt; my big boy saw it called it and ran it for 30!!!! Its something to see a 6' 185 pound 13 year old read and react...I give him the option; he called it and rumbled. My kids are very smart alert and sound.....THE FUNDAMENTALS!!!! they listen well; I hope I coach them right!!

When Al Pa gets fired....we will have a CS coaching staff....yea I know we all get huffy, opinionated and such, but in reality we have a pretty good grasp of this sport. Lot of smart alert wise folks on here and we may express it differently and crude...but we know.

I think we win on skill and talent today....sloppy as usual...flat and undaunting but win. To me that is sad that we take the field with a passive apathetic attitude.....far cry from the elite teams of today....and UM teams that used to strike fear in our opponents when we came out of the smoke. I think they laugh at us now....remember when we killed Nebraska in 02? They were scared. Now Duke WF UVA believe they can do it.....very sad for our once mighty program.

We are about 35-50 level I think.....

WWIN

Teams use to HATE to play us,
Now they CAN'T WAIT to play us!

mi@mic@ne

Our d use to be filled with pit bulls now what team will be afraid of playing a bunch of poodles? Oh well at least we will see the old style on offense.

Nope, but we take the lead on that possession and the team with the ball last wins. They weren't exactly stopping us either.

longtimecanefan

Word is our safetys are already lined up 15 yds off the LOS....no sense waiting till game time

BEERicane

I don't have a huge problem with the safety 15yd deep. I have a bigger problem with corners 10yd off.

WWIN

Beer, no way in hell we blame that game on Duke! Was it a big play? Yes, but it's okay for the defense to give up point after point but not okay for Duke to fumble?

VA Cane

Gents we lost for many reasons as a TEAM; coaches do not coach skills schemes and fundamentals; players are lazy do not listen and do not execute fundamentals they have not mastered as they do no repeat them over and over. We are a talented team, but we are passive, lazy, do not know fundamental football, and we are scared to play and coach balls to the wall WFO......we are # 1 in class ranking, stars, swag, talk, clipping reading, All star games, 40 times and HS records.......BUT that does not win a damn thing if you do not put it to use executing fundamentals, being aggressive, working as a TEAM, thinking......and going out there to knock someone into next week, put them out of the game with a low clean hard fast hit.......loving doing it and never saying a word. Controlled rage and hate executing fundamentals....and loving it silently.....can you say Jack Tatum The Assassin?
Love it that way!!!!!!!!!

NativeCane

There have been incredible, yet brief, moments of wild passion followed by long stretches of angst and misery that would drive any lover crazy and probably leave them dazed and confused.

As long as youre not Maized and Cornfused! LOL

Not gonna make a prediction cause I dont want to jinx the object of my affection but you can read my mind SOUP.

DEM CANES!!!

WWIN

Posted by: VA Cane | September 27, 2014 at 03:34 PM

If players were so lazy and didn't execute, why did spring and fall camp go so great? So great, that we ended fall camp 2 DAYS EARLY, that's how good the PLAYERS were doing!

VA Cane

Maybe they fooled everybody; camp does not mean a thing; Game Day on the field is all that matters; you see people executing on the field now? I dont think we won a single game in spring and fall practice. You play how you practice and you are what your record says you are.

Color it anyway you like; I am just telling you what I see on the field on Game Day it is the only time that matters...where you win and lose.

BEERicane

Beer, no way in hell we blame that game on Duke! Was it a big play? Yes, but it's okay for the defense to give up point after point but not okay for Duke to fumble?

Posted by: WWIN | September 27, 2014 at 03:24 PM

I didn't blame Duke. I simply am saying that play sealed our fate and prevented any chance, however small, of winning. You cannot deny the game ended with that fumble.

VA Cane

That game ended when Nebraska handed the ball off for the first time; they knew UM could not and would not stop their power run game.

They had 359 on the ground, our net was 76. We had about 335 air yards they had 113. You shut down their run like they did ours, you win going away. We cannot stop the run; we are get blown off the ball. You usually lose that way. JMO
