Final thoughts:


If Bubba from Clermont applies at UF and doesn't get in, and Javier from Hialeah doesn't even bother applying to UM, does that make it easier or harder to get into either school?

I rest my case.

Microphone dropped,exit to ovation.

Neither. Which was my point as well. Not enough info available

But be careful w that microphone man, it's expensive

2001 was a great year for University of Miami Sports Program. That is all.

There are 7669 4 year universities in the US. 189 Ain't so bad.. #UNCG

I remember going to the Miami VS VT game with my brother before Miami went to the Ship. My wife bought me round trip airfare and tickets for an early Xmas gift. It was my first game in the OB and it was an awesome one to witness, especially watching Willis Mcgahee...he was awesome! I truly think that Ken will always be Da Man for me though.

Between Gore,McGahee,Portis,James,Moss,Shockey,Johnson, & Wayne to name a few, that has to be at least 50-60Ks in the NFL. Gonna be a while before another College puts together that kind of talent.

Correction: *50-60K yards in the NFL*

Harry Miller

Gore absolutely had a learning disibiliity. I know this for a fact. One of my friends wife worked with and tutored Gore thru high school. He really worked his butt off to get to the U. He always told her he was going to be a football player at U.

That's exactly right, sir.

Anybody around the program or him would tell you how hard he worked even after getting in. I'm so glad for his success in the NFL, but I'm not surprised as hard a worker as he is. Quality human being.

Lurker

Beer, to answer your question, thus is just a guess based on some logic, assuming that most of these PhDs were in a science field, the most "scientific" MD's that I can think off are oncologists, radiation oncologists, opthamalogists, maybe radiologists. I'm just spitballing it, though.

BEERicane

Good spitball. It is among your list.

BEERicane

Pathology could have made the list too.

Lurker

If you're an oncologist, there is a decent probability we've met

Da U N Houston

I think we should bring one more QB in this class. Not good to have just 3 QB's on schollies next year. Plus if BK growth and progression continues, no way he is here past 3 yrs. Imagine if he knew the play book down pat!!!! Heard they are giving him more freedom to call audibles which I think he did last night. If you watch the game, he changed it up a lot yo run with Duke.

With this O-line, gotta love a depth of Yearby, Gus, Scarlett, Walton and Exter. Wonder who red shirts?


Also need at least 1 TE.

BEERicane

Rad Onc

BEERicane

You work at Sylvester, Lurker?

Lurker

Yes. Pathology could be there. Lots of diversity in the career choices of physicians.

If you're familiar with GOs/FPs/IMs - here's a joke for you:


Why are doctors such poor dressers?


Because pharma companies don't give out clothes

Lurker

Ok, not a Med oncology.

But, I am familiar with your specialty on a personal basis. A specific practice of course.

Lurker

No I dont. But I've spent time at Sylvester

Anyway, dovetails nicely with #KellyTough.

Posted by: Lurker | October 25, 2014 at 07:50 PM

True. They are the roughest treatments to endure from a radiation standpoint of all disease sites. But it's worth it. Even in the most advanced (locoregional) stages, cure is not only possible, it's likely so we accept all of those horrible side effects.

BEERicane

Glad the treatment is behind you and you are well. Cheers, mate.

Dude on a Pale Horse

So glad someone of BEER's education level is a beer guy.

LOL, Dude. Many are....

I agree WWIM, but I didn't understand WTH they were talking about LMAO!

WWIN

Rock, me either but it seemed interesting! Lol

Lurker was getting a little irritated but he stuck with the process!

Go Canes

Down goes Ole Miss. Only scoring 7 pts on the road.

WWIN

Yeah we know all of our 3 loses this year was due to circumstances, and circumstances only!

WWIN

On a side note. Carter Hucks' mom is pretty hott!

SOUP

Canes got this?

SOUP

Golden sweats less?

CaneRock

Ole Miss has a great defense, but I've never been impressed with their offense. When's the last time they even had a good offense, the Eli Manning era?

Go Canes

Ohio State about to go down to Penn State in OT.

CaneRock

And real talk, I like our chances against either Mississippi team.

Go Canes

@YahooForde: Ohio State escapes. And is even less Playoff-worthy than before the game.

WWIN

Rock, what's our chances against fsu?

CaneRock

WWIM...with Duke & PD4, I'd say our chances are good. If ND almost did a number on em', I know we got a shot.

Dude on a Pale Horse

CR,

Ole Miss with McCluster, Mike Wallace, Snead was very capable '08-'09.

SJMPARMAN

We can't try to be Notre Dame and beat FSU. We have to have the VT game plan. Ride Captain Ride on that Duke train. FSU vulnerable against run somewhat and you would rather attack their front seven than their back four again like VT. We'll have a better feel for FSU next Thursday. I think Louisville has a chance of making a real game of it.

SJMPARMAN

True story

Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse of Louisville has informed its customer that the raw bar will not feature crab legs this weekend as a precautionary measure, as Jameis Winston and the Florida State Seminoles are headed to town to take on the Cardinals.

CaneRock

TD...didn't know all those guys played together...yeah, they had a stick then LMAO!

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: SJMPARMAN | October 26, 2014 at 12:35 AM

We can only ride Duke and the running game to a point. We clearly beT VT upfront all night with our OL, FSU is another animal. We will not beat FSU without throwing the ball as their front 7 is better. We have to win down field and keep the FSU defense on their heels so we can run Duke. Unlike last year, I'm not sure if FSU has someone that can consistantly cover Walford. We need good Clive to show up.

CaneRock

SJMPARMAN...I agree, if Duke's hot, feed em'. This team is starting to look like a run to pass team.

WWIN

How many passes did we attempt against VA Tech?

Dude on a Pale Horse

Also Dukes 20+ yard gains on VT will be 10 yards on FSU. Not that Duke can't break loose, it will just be harder. Yearby and Gus will have to help carry the load, and for God's sake, no turnovers! We need every advantage we can get. If we dont pressure Winston, we are in trouble. It has to be more that just McCord and it will be a team effort to bring him down because he's really strong in the pocket and has great improv skills when the play breaks down. Mark will need to bring the kitchen sink and Al cannot let the O go into a conservative shell.

WWIN

I think we'll beat em!

CaneRock

WWIM...I know BK had less than a 100 yards passing.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think 7 WW, I think Kaaya was 7 of 15 but I cant remember.

Also field position against FSU will be a big thing. Especially in regards to where we put Wintson.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Well against VT I finally saw the team I thought we were capable all year. We can't slip against UNC, and I dont want FSU to lose on Thursday night @Louisville. I want to be the one to knock them off.

CaneRock

Take Green and O'Leary away, you win half the battle against em'...but that's easier said than done.

CaneRock

I'm just going off the CCRs, but from the looks of it, Carter seems to be our best TE coverage man, put His butt on O'Leary when we go man to man.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think Winston does a pretty good job of finding all of his guys. Best to get a hat on him, maybe Perryman can give him a concussion in the 1st qtr.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I have a feeling, even though I've only seen UNC play once, Miami will go back fo the prevent.

Go Canes

We're going to see a lot if Grace against O'Leary I think.

He's got the size and speed to give him trouble.

Go Canes

USC goes down.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Is O'Leary really all that? I know he scores a lot and has good hands, but I've never thought of him as fast or physical. I'll give him crafty. Winston likes to go downfield, we have to keep guys covered and force the ball out of his hand early. Exotic blitzes and straight up beating their OL.

CaneRock

TD...He's physical:

And a lucky SOB, that sucka's had 2 crashes riding motorcycles.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I dont know CR, I guess I think he's overrated.

Surfercane

Morning all, let's not look past UNC, one game season. They have a much better QB than VT! If we play the way we did against Duke and VT we will win by 10! Please play an aggressive style D and make tackles Canes! Let's go Canes!!!

Go Canes

ICYM this huge news:

@CANEINSIDER: Walton reclassified, solid to the "U" - Read More... http://t.co/Ua5irvKuJN #Canes, #TheU

Go Canes

And I guess this has some kind of tiebreaker implications:

@ByTimReynolds: Scoring differentials in ACC games for Coastal teams this season:

Ga Tech +31
Miami +7
Duke +1
Virginia -1
Va Tech -15
Pitt -18
UNC -26

First things first let our Canes beat UNC for Homecoming Kelly Tough Green Out and become bowl eligible before we go worrying about FSU peeps. We will have 2 weeks to talk FSU after the UNC game. One game at a time peeps. Go Canes! Beat UNC.

Go Canes

UNC is going to score Terrance. Their QB is legit.

But if we execute the same game plan we had against Va Tech, but also mix in the passing game in space offensively, we'll win this one by double digits in my opinion.

Posted by: The Dude | October 26, 2014 at 01:24 AM

I hope not, but it seems to be our MO. Against weaker offenses they play more aggressive... More blitzes, moving guys up and some press. Against stronger Os they break out the prevent, hold blocks not shoot gaps etc. Even the second half while we were nursing the lead you could see examples of this BUT we forced turnovers. Forced being the operative word as it appears the plan is to play that soft D and force turnovers. Actually it doesn't just appear so, AG has said so.. So they did what they're tought. And it worked. We've seen what happens when the turnovers don't come.

I wasn't all that impressed w UNC yesterday, but that O has put up some numbers this year. This game has me more nervous than VT did, but I'm also hopeful that we continue to see the more aggressive side of our D.

My biggest fear though has more to do with the weather. It was cool in Bburgh Thursday night, Saturday will be a different story. I shudder at the thought of having to look at Al in a sweat soaked business shirt again. Oh, the horror!!!

See U CaneSpace Fam at Sun Life on Saturday Go Canes!

SOUP

U could be Michigan and Brady Hoke.

Go Canes

Honestly don't know why you feel that way Dude. Through eight games this season no one has passed effectively against us.

When you look at the overall season, GT has scored 38 or more in 5 of 8 games, 30 or more in 6. We, along with VT, are the only two teams to hold them below that number.

We've been run on by maybe the two teams in the country who do it best, but overall we're playing good D this season.

CaneRock

Badgley & Vogel have really stepped up.

CaneRock

Go Canes, I agree, NU & GT are gonna do what they do. But I still don't like the defensive gameplans for those games. And I hate to keep harping on it, but that Center uncovered was just, how shall I saaaaaay...CRIMINAL?!

BigWindyCane1

I hope the Canes use that VT game plan from here on out. Run to set up the pass. Although Kaaya is a good freshman QB, the Canes would be foolish to heavily rely on the freshman to make plays when the biggest strength of this offense is running the ball with the best RB in college football running behind one of the best OLs.

I think that puts Kaaya in the best position to be successful, when the Canes run first and throw off of play action. When Dorset is on single coverage, best CBs in college football cannot stay with him. Running the ball also gives the Canes time of possession and gives the D some rest.

Before the VT game, I predicted the Canes would win big and run for 300+. I could tell the coaches were confident they could run the ball successfully, and I think that will be their strategy going forward. I am probably the only one happy to see Duke in the game at garbage time because padding his stats gets him and the Canes on Sportscenter, and helps him get post season awards. Bigger stats also helps recruiting. The Canes took a huge step forward under Golden last Thursday. A double digit win against UNC next week and we are looking at closing the second half of the season at 5-1 or 6-0, and momentum in recruiting. There is no one here or coming in to replace Duke and Dorset, but the Canes will be much deeper and stronger at each position. Canes should make their way into the national conversation next season.

Go Canes

Agree with every word of that fine post by Windy.

Sarasota 'cane

U could be Michigan and Brady Hoke.

Posted by: SOUP | October 26, 2014 at 10:36 AM

U could also be any number of winning programs as well with the right coaching staff.

Constantly comparing Golden to Coker, Shannon, and now Brady Hoke does not suggest that UM is "on the way back".

Go Canes

Pretty amazing stat:

@philsteele042: I cannot remember another time when#1 team in the country was last in its own league (a 14 tm league to boot!) in total defense. UK got 504

Go Canes


Defensive points allowed to common 2013 opponents so far--Louisville, Duke, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.

2013--159
2014--70

Think this stat gives a good indicator of the direction this program is going, especially when you consider three of the four were night games on the road.

CaneRock

While TOP is important, I say get a big lead like we got Thursday night, and then pin your ears back & play defense. Another way you can increase TOP for us, and limit it for the opponent, is TOs and/or consistent 3 & outs. I'm tired of protecting the defense, sudden change is a part of the game.

In the words of Ray Lewis..."GET OFF THE FIELD!...GET OFF THE EFFIN' FIELD!"

WWIN

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | October 26, 2014 at 11:45 AM

The game plan against VA Tech was run to set up the run lol! And it didn't help Kaaya, he was off.

WWIN

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | October 26, 2014 at 09:58 AM

I think the fsu will be the biggest game of the season for us, pretty much a championship game, so I think that's why most people are looking to that game. We have a chance to really hurt fsu's season. All games will be forgiven if Golden beats fsu lol. Even if we lose to unc but come back the next game to beat fsu who would care if we lost to unc lol? Imagine the party that Soup would throw!

WWIN

I remember the days when people said PD4 sucked and shouldn't be on the field lol! Now he's irreplaceable? Lol
