dang that was short and sweet

Go Canes

So wired I can't sleep.

Have time to heal and plan for UNC.

Already stoked for that one. Wish it was at night.

Go Canes!

So i will repeat what I said in last blog...... I told everyone I had a good feeling about tonights game and I was right. Everybody needs to
R-E-L-A-X.....

CANES WIN, CANES WIN, CANES WIN!!!

I was looking for the phrase to describe tonight's win, I came up with "SERIOUSLY CONVINCINGLY"

But I think "Best Win Ever" is even better!!

Go Canes

@ByTimReynolds: Al Golden didn't need to be talked into having Carter Hucks around. He won't acknowledge it, but he made all this happen for that kid.

SJMPARMAN

Great win, just what the Doctor ordered. Coaches outcoached the Hokies, Players outhit and out played them on both sides of the ball, and we coasted to an easy victory. Got greedy at end and really wanted to see the shutout. Maybe too much to ask but I feel happy about my Canes for the first time in a long time. So happy for Duke. He is capable of this type of performance against anyone. Kaaya numbers not great but didn't need them tonight. Those take aways after half time were sweet. Totally dominant win! It's great to be a Miami Hurricane again (well it was always great but you know what I mean).

I think we can be carried on Duke's back to the ACC coastal. He was awesome tonight. Great vision. Saw a so-called future NFL corner back whiff on several tackles against him. When we are rolling on the ground like this, we need to just ride it for four quarters or until they stop it. VT never did. I remember how dominant the Dolphins were controlling the ball (and clock) and winning games in the seventies. I wish we would be more like that when we are on a roll.

What I saw tonight was a team that played an aggressive 3-4. There were 5 men on the line tonight and I think that really helps. You show both at the line and one of them is probably coming but you don't show which one. Plus, I saw a lot of blitzes. A 3-4 is a good scheme. A lot of pro teams are very successful with it. But you have to be aggressive with it and we were bringing it and laying the wood on those Hokies all night.

Great freaking win!

Keoki

All 3 phases played well, but wanted more points off TOs & a shutout -greedy, yes!

F'the Turds & Turkeys!
GO CANES!!!

Lurker

A little smash mouth, anybody?

Kayaa throws a 98 yd TD if Dorsett finds the ball in the air. Rewatch that play.

Last week: "these coaches suck, they didn't leave Duke in long enough. They're trying to ruin his Heisman chances"

This week, "these ciaches suck, they should have taken Duke out in the third quarter"

Me, I'm cracking an 18 yr single malt.

Life's way too short, have to celebrate when you can, as much as you can.

SOUP

We kicked VT's @$$ SERIOUSLY CONVINCINGLY tonight!!!!!!

Watch the comments drop to nothing in the next few days. Just watch! Haters where are U? LOL

raizecane

would love to see this same performance against UNC next week.

Terrance Sullivan

I am happy. That is all. Go Canes.

CaneRock

Random stat...

Miami scored on 5 outta 12 possessions, for 30 points, for an average of 6 PPP. All the drives were important, but it seems to me the key drives were...the one where we scored with seconds left in the 1st half...and the one where we ate up 5:23 on the clock in the 3Q after getting a TO.

AeroCane

I was driving the entire game and listened to it on Sirius radio / it was a hokie station. They could not stop talking about how dominant our OL was, how great Duke was and how strong our defensive line was.
Great W! On the road, at night and on national tv

SOUP

Winners gonna WIN!

The Dude

This game is exactly how I've been expecting us to play all fricken year. Is there any doubt we should have a better record right now? Anyways, I didnt type that ti dwell on the past. I'm so happy we kicked the sh*t out of a rival. O_C no one posts 16-7 because that's still not up to standard, we can post stats for and against until the cows come home but no one could give a f*ck when we play like we did tonight.

I bet if we played Louisville again, we would beat them.

Come on down. Keys under the mat, the single malt is breathing.

It tastes so good after a win.

Happy happy happy

The Dude

Aero, if you didn't see the game, yeah Kehoe's boys mauled VT. Great LOOKING victory.

Sometimes you have sex and its nice. Sometimes you have great sex. Tonight was not just a win, it was a great win.

The Dude

Lurker,

Tonight, I just want to hug you after this win.

#burriedhatchet

SJMPARMAN

Best thing about this game? The fans have absolutely no reason not to support Jim Kelly and come to homecoming game. VT defense is stellar compared to UNC. 6-3 looks reachable to me. If somehow the run game and the pass game show up on the same day, and the defense plays like this or even tad better, we could give FSU a run for their money. These Canes were a better team after the dominant Cincy win and stringing this back to back, on the road in Blacksburg, they are an even better team tonight. If they take care of business against UNC, and I think they will CONVINCINGLY, that FSU game will generate a ton of interest, all good for the program and recruiting. We will be relevant again. We sneak out a win against FSU, dare say it but we would be close to being all the way back.

The Dude

Lol,

SOUP said we'd win by 17. Canes said f*ck that, we want more!

Posted by: CaneRock | October 23, 2014 at 11:57 PM

Correction: For an average of 2.something PPP...we averaged 6 PPP on the possessions that resulted in a score.

But WGAF, stats are just results...we had 30, dem big bone chickens had 7...CANES WIN!

The Dude

Posted by: SJMPARMAN | October 24, 2014 at 12:07 AM

In this scenario, our recruiting would take off. We have to win every game and at least scare FSU late. That'd make me very happy.

SOUP

Canes win, Canes win, Canes win!!!

We will beat FSU 137-13.

Haven't been this happy since Mike James walked in a TD at GT in OT.

SOUP,

Did you hear that? In the garage? Ah sh*t, could it be? The just got the bus started.

SJMPARMAN

We scared FSU into the 3rd quarter before Duke got hurt. If we pound the ball against FSU, and a lot of teams have run well against them this year, we can take them. But I don't wanna just scare them this year. They are beatable. And we just might be good enough to do it. But everybody, coaches, players and fans have to do their part.

Kaaya is already playing like a Jr. Well done to Al and Coley. A very great find and great coaching. Brad is a gem.

Yup. Moving forward days like should be the rule, not the exception. Kicking the crap outta VT... Just so sweeet

Agreed! The D was called closer to how we've been saying it should and the results speak for themselves. I'm thinking maybe we should be called seers, wizards or better yet demagogues!!

Whose the fine looking couple pimping those canespace tees on a rainy day at Animal Kingdom?

WWIN

Rock, unc is no slouch!

P.S. F da cHeat

CaneRock

UNC ain't got no defense though, they're allowing 43.3 PPG.

SJMPARMAN

UNC is having a 1984 Canes season. Score at will, pray you have the ball last. We have to just make sure we have the ball most of the time and especially last in the game if it comes down to it.

CaneRock

WWIM...I can't believe I had to watch Simmons & Rose ridin' Le?'s jock before I had to watch my Canes play. Kinda $h!t is that dawg...LMAO!

#TEAMHEAT!
#PARADEONBISCAYNE!

Lurker

UNC is no joke on offense. They will also have an us against the world mentality. They also hate us, like pretty much all teams. This will be no cakewalk and if the defense takes a couple of steps back, game will not be easy.

Our team is not nearly good enough to let up. Need to get back at it on Sunday.

In the meantime though, let's celebrate!!!!!

The Dude

Nothing sloppy from tonights win. That was a effing good team win. The best an Al Golden team has looked since I can remember. We can never let up ever. Canes mentality is to dominate every snap. Make them hurt after defeat. Tonight Hokies are hurting and Canes are celebrating. Not just a win, a great win.

Canes win!

The Dude

My boy Dorsett didnt have the best night, but the threat of him was obvious, we also just missed on a 99 TD. Love when we turn things into a track meet outside. He and Perryman are the two Canes we'll miss most next year. As many great WRs as we have, only Coley can run like that. Grace will try and be our Perryman. Still need an Armbrister for next year. I kind of think Duke should stay for his senior year. I think he's completely ready for the NFL but we can have a monster year next and maybe be the 1st back taken. Flowers should stay too. He's almost there to be a top 5 guy. Our OL next year from left to right Flowers, Isadora, Linder?, Gadbois, McDermott. Young and talented. On D we lose 4 key players, DP52, TA34, AC71 & OP 91. Grace is the man to take over for DP. Maybe Owens can replace TA, does Kirby get another year? We have a slew of young talent to replace Chick and Jenkins may already be or most talented DT.

Mark: you have 4 more games, you'd better be this dominant in every one of 'em. Even now You still deserve to be canned. Coach like you @$$ is on the line because oh boy is it.

The Dude

That said Mark, great f@ckin job against Tech my man!

The Dude

On a Thursday night too in front of all of college football.

VA Cane

Tired but happy. Had to come home as I am in class taking Continuing Ed classes for my appraiser license. The guys played really well, big win. Very good solid simple game plan, Everything went well. I am not concerned about a shutout, a great win was what everyone....staff, players, fans.....needed.
I had a lot of fun at the game. It was cold....but left with lots of warmth.

roachcane77

Great that you could be there VA Cane! Stadium seemed to get pretty quiet pretty quickly.

Nothing better for a hostile environment than to jump into an early lead.

Great WIN CANES!

(PLEASE give Duke a rest when the game is on ice Coach Coley! Haven't you guys learned your lesson the hard way ONCE already?)

VA Cane


1. I would add run the ball effectively. The OL needs to provide Duke and Yerby some daylight. Give them light, they will do well. Like needs to be aggressive on runs, pick those feet up and drive people; the acks will hit holes that are there. I dont mean a 200 yard game, but a steady ground attack; get me 5 or 6.

2. Protect BK. Don't let him get sacked hit or pressured. You know they will, but keep him up as often as possible.Again the OL needs to step up.

3. No critical mistakes, especially in key situations. No false starts, offsides, face masks, personal fouls.

4. Get the run going, but keep Clive active, and do not be afraid to put PD 1 on 1 deep; take a shot.

5. Block and tackle; we wont be perfect but execute these fundamental aspects.


Well they did what I said they needed to as well as what Lurker said....and then some. We can play with most people if we execute solid simple aggressive game plan like last night!!!

YooperCane

Happy Friday! Indeed it is...I will be gloating all day today! Nothing like a bad hangover and a win to boot! Love it!

Go Canes

Time to rise and grind!

Lots to be happy about,obviously, about last night. Our guys played a complete game on both sides of the ball and with no disrespect to Gus intended, if Yearby got half his carries last night it could have been worse.

This is the team I saw when I thought we'd win the ones we had left. We got flashes of it, but they look like are finally putting it together for long stretches.

Next week will be a much bigger test. UNC can score and has adopted an out score and hope to win mentallity.

But we can beat them soundly by controlling the line of scrimmage, play mistake free football and win 3rd down on both sides of the ball again.

Posted the question after Louisville, would we beat them with game 6-7 version of Kaaya, compared to the game 1 version. Think that question was answered last night.

Finally, this amazing stat:

@ByTimReynolds: Here's my favorite Duke stat: He's averaged 9.2 yards every time he's been handed, kicked or thrown the football in his career.

mi@mic@ne

Great win... dno did a good job of reading their plays and bringing guys up into the holes ...we didnt just stand there and hold the blocks...we were in their backfield the whole nite...our lbs were pit bulls...they cough the from the jarring hits.

I like Chick move to the middle ... we stunted him all nite long and got good pressure in the center of the pass play...dno is finally showing that he is a smart guy...but this time hes bringing the pursuit.

Sense Kaaya has had so much success with his passing stats ...teams cant load the box... so Duke had all kinds of room to roam last nite...

Its great to see old fashion football be successful. We played the pro style and showed that if you got balance ..pass run then your still gonna be successful.

I saw some pro talent last nite on both sides of the ball..it can only get better.

mi@mic@ne

We missed about 4 home run throws last nite so they are lucky it wasnt 50 0...if we clean up the fly patterns we would be impossible to stop.

canezilla

DUKE IS OVER A GRAND

Surfercane

I've posted on here all week how big this game would be for Kaaya and crew. Huge win for the Canes! Kaaya had complete control of the offense and looked composed the entire game, mistake free football! O yea Duuuke!!! Best D performance of the year too! I like our D when we blitz!

**************************************

That could be a potential problem as we are not good against a mobil QB. I hope the team does a LOT of film study this week.

Go Canes

The extra days of prep time will definitely help Raize. They need to have the exact same game plan on offense and stay aggressive on D. A healthy Yearby will be huge.

mi@mic@ne

We got a lot of quality players on d...if you just coach them to cause havoc in the middle they are gonna show their speed, strength and quickness.. i think we can dominate unc at the line of scrimmage.. it was a few simple things that had to change...pursuit and tackling..we doin it now.

Go Canes

BTW, I don't think there's any doubt Nick Linder has been the most pleasant surprise of our freshman class.

He and Feliciano looked awesome last night.

mi@mic@ne

If d continues ..lbs scraping across the field...getting push up the middle and pursuing the ball al will go from a chump coach to possibly being one of the best Cane coaches we ever had... Al can recruit and build the progam.. thats his talent ..

trianglecane

Good games Canes. Especially in a game that was supposed to be tight. It was a pleasure. I like that Gus is starting to put it together.

Keep it up Canes!

nemo2002

I like the "attacking defense" a lot more than the "defensive defense".

P.S. Speaking of "attackers" on defense, does anyone know if AQM plans to retun to UM next semester?

UMike

I had to go to sleep at half time, but man did our Canes look like the old Canes while I watched. Looked like the Thursday night games I was use to. Im very happy Grace is playing more, kid is going to be a stud. Great win.

Canes 34
VT 10

Duke 125 yards, Coley 5 catches 80 yards and the defense turns a corner giving up under 300 total yards, with the lone TD in garbage time. This will be the game we all look back on as the one where the U started to be the U again!!

Dammit I was close! Actually meant to Tyle 225 for duke.

USAFCane

I predicted a loss and couldn't have been more wrong. Kudos to everyone but especially the coaches. This was the first time in loooong time that this staff had an effective game plan that was executed superbly. This was the best we've looked under AG IMO.

Not going to get much traction, but the D has improved this year and were very good last night. I know it isn't popular but there has been player development also, clearly Grace, Kirby and Bush have gotten better IMO.

Glad I was wrong, now the Canes must sustain and build on this, winning needs to become a habit again.

Lurker

Bannerboi's are very quiet. You'd think they'd be happy like everybody else.

Not a peep from those fake fans. That's what haters do. Clam up when the team wins.

CaneRock

Who's a "bannerboi" Lurker? You heard SOUP, don't start that $h!t.

Hey, where you been, CR?

The guys that fly the banners, but you already knew that.

Seriously, CR. Please don't lecture - you of all people.
