NEW BLOG IS UP!

Dude on a Pale Horse

CR,

I liked Archibald too, he was a great prospect. I never really watched Brown, so I don't know what we lost. What I really want to know is; where's the elite CB when there are so many around Miami? We can't get even one kid? We need an elite DT also but I'm not so sure that will happen this year.

Completely agree, but think we should have beat Louisville to start the season.

CaneRock

I was never really blown away by Brown, but Archibald was a good lookin' prospect.

Go Canes

@UnderwoodSports: Amid all the failings (of which there have been plenty), this team is quietly improving and playing WAYYY better than early in the season

@UnderwoodSports: And, I say again: If we got another shot at Louisville we win that game by 10+ pts.

CaneRock

What was left of the 2009 OLine class graduated last year.

What's left of the 2010 class graduates this year.

We lost 40% of our starting OLine last year...Henderson & Linder.

If Flowers leaves, we lose 60% of our starters this year...Feliciano,Flowers, & McDermott.

So no, I don't believe Al Golden is stockpiling O-Linemen "just cuz".

TonyCane, what say you?

Lurker

We don't use them, but our coaches know about them. That's the last I'm saying.

Lurker

I know

They're as real as all get out. They run a lot of stuff. Mostly rep SEC schools, including the gators. But Bama, Lsu and a few others use them. Or I should say their boosters use them. I know this indisputably

86Cane

Lurker...if U only knew! Me and my boi WWIM, well let's just say that we, or maybe not? LOL

Just kidding, JUST KIDDING!

Dude,

The other decommit I'm thinking about was claude george.

I just hope we beat Jax State this week? Or is it next week?

Every week. We kick they @$$ after every game just for the hell of it! So we'll play them at about 4pm on Saturday!

EPI...no, I am a street agent, freelance guy. But I do work with many new home construction builders who let me sit in their model homes when empty and also market their products in creative ways to generate traffic (open houses for inventory/spec homes).

Dude on a Pale Horse

Who are the bigger fish?

Go Canes

I agree with Ohio. Why would a player like that TE decommit from us, after seeing what Kaaya's doing to go to Wake.

That O lineman will be replaced soon enough too.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Who was the other O_C? I'm not surprised about Brown as stated before 7 is a large number.

Ohio_Cane

We stopped recruiting both decommits months before they left. Staff believes we'll be landing bigger fish.

I believe his uncle is the miramar coach who went to coach at WVU.

@mattyports: Miramar High three-star OG Leeward Brown (6-3, 338) says he decommitted from Miami.

Dude on a Pale Horse

There's only so many scholarships though so unless you want to start pulling them I don't think 7 will be the final number.

@ESPNStatsInfo: Top 4 teams in College Football Playoff rankings rank in top 6 in FPI, but No. 1 FPI team (Alabama) not among them http://t.co/0KncrC1DyU

CaneRock

Didn't McDermott & Gadbois get hurt in the same game (Duke)?

Go Canes

Another misconception is the thought everyone you have on the roster can play.

If you have adequate numbers but feel some aren't ever going to be good enough, you have to get more, especially at that position.

Lurker

Not having enough DLinemen, is not a reason to not stockpile OLinemen. There are plenty of recruiting spots we have and can make for the Dline. The two are not mutually exclusive, or has not anyone noticed our OLine right now is basically patchwork.

Facts, people. Check current events. Or check how often OLinemen go down everywhere. We have an elite QB in the making - let's not get him killed.

Shocking thought for sure we would go with the green helmets with the all green unis

That was then this is now

We have enough O-Linemen, with only 2 graduating, that I can recall. We graduate 3 interior D-Linemen, now where's the love in that department. That's the side of the ball where Goldie needs to really turn his attention 2 and I'm not talking about just bodies, some real difference makers. If we can one day get that side stocked again, then we can start talking about being a national presence again.

Now that we can agree on!

No, I don't think seven is too many at all.

Okay, I know where that is but I'm not too familiar with it

FAMU fires Earl Holmes...wouldn't mind having Earl as a LB coach.

CaneRock

WWIM...my wife just told me the name of the town was Nolansville..

Dude on a Pale Horse

I said we have too many OL committed. I don't think it will be 7 when ink hits paper in February. 7 is a pretty large number for OL, injuries or not. Especially when we lose what 3 OL at the end of this year?

Also I liked the uniforms against Louisville and ga tech, I like the all green too. They were bad @$$! I don't like the results tho lol

KYcane

Yeah but what about all the loses that the classic helmets have provided over the last 12yrs tho? Lol

Posted by: WWIM | October 28, 2014 at 03:01 PM

point taken...or for that matter the last thirty or so years.

That was then this is now

We'll see if what DENO thinks is, that everyone is starting to grasp the defense and where they are supposed to be is true this coming weekend. UNC's offense is no joke and might be better than FSU's.
Dorsett will be probably a third rounder. Has first rounder speed but disappears to much during games. he should be a guy like Greene from FSU that catches about 5 to 6 balls a game and is a game changer every time he touches the ball. He has moments sort of like Coley this year. With these 2 guys we should be lighting up the score board.

ACC Upset Watch: Week 10

North Carolina (4-4, 2-2) at Miami (5-3, 2-2), 12:30 p.m., ESPN3. Line: Miami by 17. The line in this game seems a bit high considering the Tar Heels are on a bit of a roll after two straight wins. There is no doubt Miami presents many more challenges to a struggling UNC defense -- both from Duke Johnson and its speedy receivers. But the North Carolina offense presents more challenges than Virginia Tech did. Marquise Williams and Mack Hollins are playing at a high level and will force Miami to have a different defensive plan this weekend.

I am also a bit superstitious and it seems like anytime we mess with the helmet things go wrong on the field. i.e. VT last year, Russell Athletic bowl, UL this year, GT.....

-------------------------------------------

Now that's funny!!!!!

Lurker

Did somebody say we were recruiting too many OL's? I read someone actually mention that.

This is why.

Offensive linemen, as a unit, get more injuries than any other positions because of the physics of how they play. Easy to figure out.

Go Canes

@mattyports: James Coley said Brad Kaaya made more run-pass calls than ever at VT, and chose btwn diff pass concepts. "He had a menu to choose from."

That sucks, big time.

Thankfully we haven't missed a beat with young Linder or I'd really start worrying.

Next man up needs to perform. My guess is Darling as well.

As far as I know, per my source, the Ereck Flowers injury was a result of the VT game, not practice. Don't know if he exacerbated injury

CaneRock

"The Miami Herald has learned that left tackle Ereck Flowers is out for at least one game, and possibly the season, with a knee injury"

Unless He got hurt in the VT, I wonder if it's a lingering injury, and He's contemplating surgery...
