Forget player fundamentals VA, how about COACHING FUNDAMENTALS?! This staff has zero clue how to game plan. None. No idea how to scheme, position their player on the field, make in-game adjustments. You can talk about all the player fundamentals you want but given how far out of position these players are, they could be fundamental form tacking, jr high SB winning all stars and they would still suck just as bad. This is 100% coaching ineptitude, nothing to do with players lack of fundamentals. You honestly think you could send all of your jr high all stars to the U and the results would be any different because they are so amazing fundamentally? No way. Your points are valid in general, just not to this situation because we honestly have the worst coaching staff in the nation.

Little birdie told me Jimmy Johnson offered help against option after Nebraska loss and Golden and D'nofrio turned him down..yeah you got it

longtimecanefan

On the plus side....the OL did a good job last night given the injuries... and we did make the PAT and FG...

CaneRock

Home improvement question...when you replace a lightbulb, and it immediately blows, is that a short?

LA3

The Head Game Coach of the Candy Canes allowed the game to change when he did not have balls to go for TD- decided to kick field goal. That was turning point in game for me! We could not stop them and we knew we needed TD's to stay with them! TD for TD then hope for mistake.

Had nuts to go for 4th down on our own 39 or so early in game. Then nuts hide late in game...need TD not FG!

LA3

Another play I hated and showed no balls.
3rd & 7 late in game.
WR screen. Do they not think that play was on the game film for GT to practice for?!!! SOB.

How about everyone run 8 or 9 yard patterns and try to complete a pass beyond the sticks!
JeZZZZZZZZ

IF JJ the LEGEND offers to help with ANYthing, then you say YES SIR & PLEASE!

Agree 100%!!! Read my comments all last week......coaches have to know these things to coach them.....schemes, plans, adjustments etc!!!!!

You are what your record says you are; we are not doing a good job of developing skills and fundamentals....cause we do not know them!!!

We are not developing these kids and obviously for a long time....remember Dedrick Epps played for me....he went to thew U.....he knows and tells me horror stories!!!!


BEERicane

Saying we suck is an insult to suck.

VA Cane

Anthony Harris of UVA played for me....we talk...he is a good player led nation in picks last year and nearly took Morris head off....he's at UVA!!!Same with Morgan.....no need to play for Shannon or Golden in my mind....not going to ever develop!!!!!!

HS, JJ, Erickson..........different universe different world...champions!!!

Clappy, Onionhead, AlPa......just a bearer of a tile, no substance as HC!!!

VA Cane

title my bust.

Old Skool

So if there are signature wins, was last night a signature loss?

BEERicane

I'd prefer Clappy. His squad (only like 2ish years in existence) lost to Arizona by 3 this yr who beat the crap out Oregon. He may be 0-5 this yr to date, but that's just because he hasn't played Miami. The roadrunners would have a field day with us.

BEERicane

Duke last yr is the signature loss.

Cane Since 1982

It is what it is

You know we wouldn't be having this conversation if PSU didn't f$&k us this past off season.

Two interceptions in the red zone. GAME CHANGERS?

Is anyone concerned that Special K might be the second coming of J-int?

longtimecanefan

Canes have given up 300 rushing yards four times in last 15 games.

That happened four times in 135 games before that.

Not me. One ball sailed a bit. One was a poor read. He will get it fixed with the next staff.

RARA

The scheme D-No had to defend the tripple option was retarded and inept. When the dive option goes of for a career high in carries and yards you know you are doing something wrong. First, WHY IN THE HELL DO YOU HAVE THE MIDDLE LINEBACKER WHO IS PLAYING DIVE TO QUARTERBACK (DT'S ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DIVE) 7 F$*KIN YARDS FROM THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE!!!! THAT IS F$*KIN RETARDED!!!! THAT'S WHY THE DIVE OPTION WENT OFF!!!! THAT'S THE FIRST F$*KIN THING YOU HAVE TO STOP IN THE TRIPPLE OPTION. D-NO COULDN'T EVEN GET THAT RIGHT!!! Whoosaw...calming down. Thinking about this again is getting me pissed.

that he heard Jimmy Johnson offered goldenofrio defensive advice after the Nebraska loss but the nittany lions said no thanks.Posted by: 4-Real | October 05, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Now I know we have a serious problem. UM's greatest coach tried to help, and Golden and D-No refused.

VA Cane

My football team is my pride and joy....pretty good in 7.5 seasons 84-3 5 SBs.......The Hurricanes have been pretty lame for 10+ years....and The Raiders are the worst football team in the world.....the worst...my kids are better than UM and Oakland combined!!!!!!!!!!!
Oakland since 83 SB are horrible....since 2002 kiss of death on them....

Canes since 2003 pretty bad as well....

At least the team I coach ids Great!!!!! My teams are so bad.....Damn!!!!

VA Cane

JJ may not be all time wins guy.....but his work at UM and Dallas second to none. Switzer did NOT win any SB title...JJ only coach to win NC and SB.....Switzer dint coach he just snuck drinks!!!!!!!

To the haters that supported AG in the beginning, what changed your mind about em'?

me neither --true freshman in his 6th game at a major(?) D1 school, there will be some growing pains. if this is happening in his 3rd year then we need to take a look at BK as J12. Hell, it shouldn't be happening in his 2nd year, but the current staff seems to grade everything on a 4 or 5 or 6 year curve--we can't expect improvement overnight or in 3.5 years.

RARA

2nd...he had the DT's lined up ineffectively. He had them playing either head up on both guards, or had the in 3 shade and 1 shade alignments. He basically had the trying to engage the guards and shed blocks. You don't do that against the tripple option. You have the DT's lineup on the inside shoulder of both guards and penetrate both gaps while chipping off the center. If this happens and the center doesn't block one of them the tackles should easily occupy the dive man. If they give it to the dive man he had to bounce it outside and the linebacker should be able to easily get to the dive option at an angle and avoid the center. Not rocket science. Plus, your Middle linebacker should be 4 yards off the ball...NOT 7!!!

Dude on a Pale Horse

Go Canes will wait 'til Tuesday or Wednesday.

canezilla

IM DONE WITH GETTING MAD, THIS COACHING STAFF WILL NOT KILL MY WEEKENDS. I WILL NOT WASTE MY MONEY ON ANY AWAY GAMES. SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE WITH THE STAFF, THIS SHYT IS NOT WORKING. ITS GETTING TO POINT WHERE WHATS THE POINT OF BUYING SEASON TICKETS, WHEN U CAN GO ON STUBHUB AND BUY 2$ TICKET AND SIT WHEREVER U WANT IN THAT GHOST TOWN OF A STADIUM

RARA

3rd...The safeties were waaaay to far off the ball. They were at 12 yards. Should have been at 8-9 yards because the way they were playing the option the safeties had pitch. You want the safeties to have to cover as little ground as possible and and decrease the amount of space to make tackling the pitch man easier.

Hank Goldberg on the radio last weekend said a "prominent former Miami HC" told Golden in the offseason that he needs a new DC. Obviously Golden didn't listen. Goldberg went on to say he doesn't see any coaching changes, not even coordinators, because of money issues, but that may change when Shalala leaves. By former prominent Miami head coach one has to assume he means JJ.

Jimmy's approach to defense involves too much freelancing. Guys need to be disciplined, and learn to trust their reads and each other.

BigWindyCane1

I love my Canes but it is frustrating. Watched a lot of college football this weekend and saw many (too many to count) of the same players I saw play in high school dominating the college game. The list is very long. I see players now in the NFL that played HS in South Florida, wanted to go to UM, but went somewhere else and got developed. Just remember that 5 of the top 10 HS s that produced NFL talent over the last 20 years are based in South Florida. It hurts when I see this happening and I want my Canes to recruit and develop players but it's not happening.


I just hope we can find a way fo beat Cincinnati and the next three ACC games so we can be somewhat relevant again.

The Canes also recruited good players but they are not developing them. It is really painful to watch.

RARA

Finally...Why not bring your strong safety down in the box and create an 8 man front where the DT's are playing on the inside shoulder of the guard, you have 2 middle linebackers to play dive to quarterback, one control left dive and one control right dive, have DE's play QB and safeties and outside LB can play pitch man. Not F$*kin rocket science. Dumbass coaches, dumbass D-No.

dj moonbat

I'm a literate guy, and I'm really running up against my limits trying to express my frustration without resort to swearing profusely.

At least with Shannon, you knew the poor guy was suffering just like we are. Golden still gives me the vibe that if we would just let up on him for a couple years, everything would be fine.

No, it's better to have just 1 MLB, 7 yards off the ball so he can go EITHER way based on his reads. There's no way an option team could exploit that.

That frees up your safeties to play 10-12 yards off the ball, in case of trickeration.

4-Real

I dont have Twitter account but from what I'm reading from other blogs our boy Golden is getting roasted.

VA Cane

I think it is a culture of promise that is actually mediocracy; we have not really turned the corner, we are not back. We are Lost in the Wilderness.

The Offense is a work in progress, I think BK will keep improving. The D is just not working. I am not a real stats guy. Yes it is nice to know ppg, rush and pass D and all that, but I look at my record as thats what matters. I can see where I need to get better, adjust, where I am strong and who is doing what.....good info.....but my record will show me what I am doing.

3-3 record shows we lost to 3 good teams; not powerhouses not top 10 but good. 3 wins against 2 teams in it for the money and 1 team that does a lot with average kids. Hmmmmm we are average we can beat on the little guys, but when the bigger guy about our size shows up we fail. Damn what happens when the big badazz comes on the block?

Run lock the doors and bolt the windows!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plain and simple: lack of progress and failure to solve the most obvious problems.

They started in a less than ideal setting, with the NCAA mess starting in year 1 and a lot of players graduating/declaring for the draft in year 2.
But by now, the NCAA "cloud" is gone and the entire roster consists of players they recruited themselves. Add stability at most of the coaching positions and the facility upgrades, and it is resonable that the product on the field should be noticeably better compared to last year. Now don't get me wrong: I don't expect a NC or even an ACC title in the next two or three years. I can even live with an occasional loss in a game we should or could have won.
But here we are, still having one of the worst defenses in all of FBS, and every Saturday seems to be Groundhog Day.

I simply don't see us getting any better. So we need change: Either the current coaching staff changing their approach (they are unwilling to change, however; in fact, they are denying there's something that needs change), or changing the coaching staff.

CaneRock

RARA...YT the 2010 game against GT, it's almost the same alignment, just different assignments. But I agree, no way your MLB should be that exposed.

VA Cane

I dont either but Phillip Buchanon is raising hell; hes upset big time!!!!!!

I am sure many other Canes are not happy either. God probably having to pin Jerome down; you know he hated losing. Golic saying he had words with JB once......he would have stomped white boys AZZ!!!!!!

longtimecanefan

the season now comes down to does AG get another year or is this it.

7-5 or better he stays...
6-6 you can flip a coin
5-7 or worse he's gone

keep in mind our last two are Pitt and VA...
we could be 5-5 at that time which helps AG..

RARA

DJMB...I didn't usually go on profane rants but sometimes a good 4 letter word is needed to sufficiently communicate your frustrations lol. The offense had its issues but is ok overall. They are heading un the right direction. They played well last night overall. The problem was the defense couldn't get off the field and give them more possessions. The main problem is the defense. The problem is D-No. Golden needs to let him go and give up his defense and hire a new D-Coordinator. Hope the boosters and trustees start a mutiny.

BEERicane

Is Go Canes ready to abandon his geocentric view of Golden in favor of the evidentiary heliocentric model which calls for his removal?
