Oh, I definitely agree. Technically, they won the recruiting war against Miami in most years. So did Florida.

2014: Miami #12, FSU #4, UF #8
2015: Miami #14, FSU #4, UF #71

Miami on paper has not had a better recruiting class than FSU since 2008. And only three times since 2002 have the Canes had a stronger class.

Even more interesting is that the Gators have had a higher recruiting ranking than the Seminoles in most years: 2006-2010, 2012-2013.

But going back to my original point, FSU capitalizes in their record and national championship appearances when Miami has been hampered by investigations or sanctions. In the four years prior to the start of the Shapiro investigation (2007-2010) the Seminoles had an average ranking of 11. In the four years since the average rose to 6.

Yeah you right, he woulda killed it at running back, especially last year!!

Elder and Burns are playing more at cornerback, and though Tracy Howard still plays, he has been less prominent. Why? Elder and Burns are faster than Howard and more consistent tacklers.

LMAO!!!!

You didn't know that that's the only reason why we haven't won a ACC title? Those other teams are getting more 2* and 3* players than us, we can't compete with yet until the sanctions are over!

WWIN

When teams set out to stop your running game you pass on em or play action pass, then when you get em to respect the pass you run on em, now you're getting balanced and unpredictable!

And vice versa!

WWIN

1. We need balance on offense to succeed, with an ability to gain positive yards on 1st down. That comes in the form of a running game.

2. Ask yourself this, if we come out passing and struggle, then where do we turn.

Posted by: Go Canes | November 11, 2014 at 05:27 PM

1. So let me get this straight... if fsu stacks the box with 8 and plans on making Kaaya beat em with his arm, we should still run the ball first???? News flash, when teams started seeing what PD4 was doing that's what opened up the running game!

2. Ask yourself this, if we come out running and struggle, then where do we turn like the Louisville game????

3 losses were bcuz Kaaya passed the ball too much???? Lol

Louisville - lost due to NOT PASSING enough!

Nebraska - lost due to our inability to stop the run! Also note that Duke fumbled the ball at a critical point in the game.

GA Tech - lost due to our inability to stop the run!

What did Kaaya have to do with these loses? What about the other 3 wins besides the last 3 games?

The only one that benefited from the "Cloud" that hung over the fate of the UM program from Aug 2011 to Oct 2013 was Florida State. Just like they benefited from Miami's fall from grace in the mid-90s.

Is it any coincidence that FSU's true dominance comes during periods of Miami sanctions and the after effects of investigations?

Year Miami Record, FSU Record
1990: Miami: 10-2, FSU: 10-2
1991: Miami: 12-0, FSU: 11-2
1992: Miami: 11-1, FSU: 11-1
1993: Miami: 9-3, FSU: 12-1
1994: Miami: 10-2, FSU: 10-1-1
1995: Miami: 8-3, FSU: 10-2
1996: Miami: 9-3, FSU: 11-1
1997: Miami: 5-6, FSU: 11-1
1998: Miami: 9-3, FSU: 11-2
1999: Miami: 9-4, FSU: 12-0
2000: Miami: 11-1, FSU: 11-2
2001: Miami: 12-0, FSU: 8-4
2002: Miami: 12-1, FSU: 9-5
2003: Miami: 11-2, FSU: 10-3
2004: Miami: 9-3, FSU: 9-3
2005: Miami: 9-3, FSU: 8-5
2006: Miami: 7-6, FSU: 7-6
2007: Miami: 5-7, FSU: 7-6
2008: Miami: 7-6, FSU: 9-4
2009: Miami: 9-4, FSU: 7-6
2010: Miami: 7-6, FSU: 10-4
2011: Miami: 6-6, FSU: 9-4
2012: Miami: 7-5, FSU: 12-2
2013: Miami: 9-4, FSU: 14-0
2014: Miami: 6-3, FSU: 9-0

Miami Pell Grant investigation, sanctions and rebuilding last from 1993 - 2000. FSU plays in national championship games in 93, 96, 98, 99, and 00.
During that time they have a record of 88-10-1.

The Shapiro investigation began in the fall of 2010 and NCAA verdict came last fall. Minor sanctions continue. During that time, FSU goes 44-6 and plays in a national championship game.

Yeah, Duke & GT really benifitted from "the cloud" with all those 4 & 5 *s that they got.

"The Cloud"...oh yoi yoi.

But that's nuhnuh my business, carry on...#LIPTON!

CaneRock

Balance isn't doing something 50% of the time such as pass, or doing something else 50% of the time such as run...that's NOT balance, that's being PREDICTABLE!

Balance is being able to do what you need to do, when you need to do it!

As has been the case the last 3 games, we've run the ball down our opponents throats BECAUSE WE CAN!

Lurker

The cloud, and the NCAA investigation, Emmert talking about a death penalty possibility for Miami, and self-imposed significant scholarship reductions, we're just a figment of our imagination. It was just Golden using his used car salesman trickery. We all know that.

Go Canes

Cloud? What cloud?

@ChristyChirinos: #Canes OC James Coley knows about the recruiting battles UM & FSU have been fighting recently. Says Noles made gains because of NCAA inquiry

I expect Kaaya, Duke and Walford to be household names Sunday morning.

Go Canes

You are spot on as usual Windy. We need balance on offense to succeed, with an ability to gain positive yards on 1st down. That comes in the form of a running game.

Ask yourself this, if we come out passing and struggle, then where do we turn.

BigWindyCane1

Brad Kaaya in the 6 wins averages 22.8 pass attempts. In the 3 losses, Kaaya averages 32 attempts.

In the wins, the Canes average 41 rushing attempts for 256.8 yards. In the three losses, the Canes average 23 attempts for 84.33 yards per game (some of those rushes are qb sacks).

prealize that if the Canes cannot establish the run, they struggle

WWIN

I want tosee explosive plays in the passing game, but you have to run effectively to set up Kaaya for the pass.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | November 11, 2014 at 02:00 PM

No we don't. What the running game has done the past 3 games have already set up the passing game. If fsu plans on stopping the run, then the passing game will be set up on the first play. You don't have to run it to pass it unless a team tries to take away your passing game.

trianglecane

I think this game comes down to walford and check downs. 36-20 miami. What the heck do we have to loose.

That was then this is Now

I hope the coaches realize that FSU is going to try and make us one dimensional. They will absolutely try and make Kaaya beat them, stacking the line of scrimmage. It's time for Dorsett & Coley to step up and if we can make that happen, dare I say CANES WIN, 31-27 BUT if those 2 disappear, it could get ugly.

I would like to see the Canes pound the rock, but continue to mix up the runs going stretch left and right, off tackle, shotgun, reverses, sweeps, wildcat and counters. Anything to keep the DL off balance so that the OL can turn Goldman and Edwards just enough to allow Duke to make that cut and get to second level and we know what happens Duke does that- kiss the baby, that man is gone!

FSU's plan to slow Miami QB Brad Kaaya: 'Hit him, hit him often'
By Dustin Tackett,
For the Orlando Sentinel

Miami freshman QB Brad Kaaya has settled into his role under center for the Hurricanes, although FSU’s goal is to make him as uncomfortable as possible.

It was a rough start, as it typically is for any true freshman, but Kaaya has displayed mental toughness after being thrown into the fire by helping Miami win four of its last five games.

“I know the offense he’s in. I know [offensive coordinator] James [Coley] carries a lot of things we do, plus some of the things he does,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “So he’d have to be a cerebral guy, a very mental guy to be where he’s at right now and have that success. He obviously has a tremendous upside.”

Miami Hurricanes’ Duke Johnson rushing to break ground
By Susan Miller Degnan, www.miamiherald.com

Ottis Anderson has never met Duke Johnson. But the Miami Hurricane great and MVP of the 1991 Super Bowl has seen him play enough that he knows it’s a matter of time before Johnson breaks his all-time UM rushing record — or goes into the NFL tantalizingly close.

“Listen, for over 30 years my record has stood against a lot of great running backs that have left the University of Miami and had stellar careers in the NFL,” said Anderson, 57, who gained 10,273 rushing yards and 81 touchdowns during 14 seasons with the Cardinals and Giants. “I’m hoping that as the legacy passes from me to Duke, that someone else can go off into the NFL and have just as productive years as all of us who came close to my record — or didn’t come close.”

Be assured that Anderson — and millions of others — will be watching at 8p.m. Saturday when Johnson’s Hurricanes (6-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) host their most formidable opponent of the season: No. 2 Florida State (9-0, 6-0), winner of 25 consecutive games and the team Johnson broke his right ankle against a year ago Nov. 2 in Tallahassee.

“I actually circled the date I got hurt, but didn’t circle the game,” said Johnson, a junior who ranks seventh nationally in rushing yards (1,213), eighth in rushing yards per game (134.8), fourth in yards per carry (7.68) and fifth in all-purpose yards (1,165.1). “I approach every game the same way, same mind-set, regardless of what happened last year.”

Johnson started the season 15th in all-time rushing yards at Miami (1,867), and is now 252 yards shy of breaking Anderson’s 3,331-yard mark set from 1975-78. That’s remarkable in itself because Anderson, who grew up in West Palm Beach, gained those yards on UM teams that finished 2-8, 3-8, 3-8 and 6-5 while he was in Coral Gables.

Johnson already is the all-time UM leader in all-purpose yards, with 4,939.

Among the Hurricanes Johnson has passed this season while ascending the rushing ladder: Alonzo Highsmith, Lamar Miller, Stephen McGuire, Frank Gore, Willis McGahee, Clinton Portis, and most recently, James Jackson and Edgerrin James.

Portis, now an analyst for the ACC, had 2,523 career yards from 1999 through 2001. He told the Miami Herald on Sunday that Johnson deserves to be more than just on the periphery of Heisman Trophy talk that includes Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah (1,250 rushing yards).

“Other players are having great years when you look at the running back position,” Portis said, “but Duke has put Miami on his shoulders in making them noticeable again. Look at how he affects the game. Those other guys usually have an opportunity to play four quarters and get their stats up. Against the ACC, Duke performs and leaves the game in the third quarter.”

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has noticed. His Seminoles are ranked 35th nationally in rushing defense, allowing 135.7 ground yards per game.

“Duke’s as good a tailback as there is anywhere,” Fisher said Monday during his weekly press conference. “You don’t realize how strong he is. Even though he’s a shorter guy… [he’s] very strong in his hips and legs, very quick body movements, very fast.”

If Johnson performs Saturday like he has in UM’s past three victories — 162 yards rushing against Cincinnati, 249 yards rushing at Virginia Tech and 177 against North Carolina — the talk will grow much louder.

“Finish strong,’’ that’s what Edge [Edgerrin James] told me my junior year,” Portis said. “That’s what Duke needs to do in this big game against Florida State. If they can knock off Florida State, he would have to be a huge reason that happened.”

UM offensive coordinator James Coley said Monday that Johnson “absolutely’’ is worthy of Heisman consideration. “He’s put a lot of work into this season,’’ Coley said. “He’s beginning to see the fruits of his labor and he should be up for every award by the way he’s played the last several games.’’

UM coach Al Golden, never one to dwell on individual awards during the season, was asked recently whether Johnson has made a case for the Heisman.

“You’re talking to the wrong guy,” Golden said. “You guys are the ones that watch all the different teams and get all the different stats. I know he’s playing at a high level. It’s hard to imagine anybody playing better right now.”

Johnson insists he doesn’t care about the accolades, though he said he likes that his mom would get excited if he got invited to New York on Dec. 13 as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

“I don’t really do it for the awards,” he said. “That’s not what I’m in it for.”

UM junior rush end Tyriq McCord, who played at Tampa Jefferson High, faced Johnson’s Miami Norland in the state title game their junior year. Jefferson won 44-34, but Johnson still rushed for 135 yards on eight carries.

McCord said Johnson “was the real deal” then. “We watched film on him. I remember my defensive coordinator was like, ‘This kid is going to be something great and we’ve got to be able to stop him.’

“I’m glad I’m not the one that has to stop him now.”

Johnson said a win against the defending national champs would be great.

“Great team,’’ he said. “They play all three phases and always find a way to win. You can say what you want about them — ‘They had the team last year, they’re not this, they’re not that’ — at the end of the day, they find a way to win.’’

Johnson, who likes to verbally spar with the competition, said he’s saving the trash talk for Saturday. “I don’t think it’s football-like to talk through social media, to talk through tweets or texts. It’s best to just show what you can do.”

Anderson, now living in South Orange, N.J., had a simple message for Johnson and his teammates as they approach game day.

“Keep the tradition alive,” he said. “Find a way to beat Florida State.”

Man claiming to be ex-UNC football player: 'If y'all came for an education, you should have went to Harvard'

A man claiming to be former North Carolina defensive tackle Tydreke Powell called into the radio station 102Jamz in Greensboro, N.C. on Monday and gave some damning quotes on the academic scandal at the university. He said he was tired of people putting blame on the players, and that the coaches were all in the know on the so-called "paper classes." Particularly striking was a quote the man said he heard from former Tar Heels football coach Butch Davis.
