The last time Miami defeated Florida State at home in football, future quarterback Brad Kaaya had just started third grade in Southern California, future running back Duke Johnson was about to turn 11 in Miami and a hurricane had just forced the Hurricanes to reschedule their annual game against the archrival Seminoles.

The date was Sept.10, 2004.

“Wow, it’s been 10 years since we last beat Florida State at home?” said Brock Berlin, the quarterback who orchestrated UM’s first victory as an Atlantic Coast Conference member — a 16-10 overtime win against FSU on a Friday night in a sold-out Orange Bowl. “I remember being so excited to be part of that. Florida State-Miami — there’s nothing like it.’’

Miami (6-3, 3-2 ACC) and FSU (9-0, 6-0) are less than a week away from their 59th meeting since 1951, a prime-time showdown at 8 p.m. Saturday at Sun Life Stadium, where the Hurricanes are 0-3 in their past three regular-season meetings. On Jan.1, 2004, following the 2003 season, UM defeated FSU in the Orange Bowl at Sun Life, then called Pro Player Stadium.

It was always hard to hate FSU because of Bowden.. How could ya hate that guy? And they played us!! Jameis is doing his best to facilitate the hating though.

CaneRock

It ain't a rivalry until you BEAT EM'!...and we ain't beat em' in awhile...BEAT EM'!

BigWindyCane1

FSU is that worthy opponent you respect, but you want to beat every time. That opponent and the battle keeps you sharp.

I loved Bowden. What a great man. As much as we beat them, they never stopped putting us on their schedule every year, while the gators and ND run scared. I am not a big fan of Jimbo's negative recruiting and Jamies criminality, but they do man up every year and play us so I respect that

Go Canes

Never had a problem with FSU.

They've never brought up dropping us even though without our head to head matchups our places in history may have been reversed.

I don't hate FSU until that Tomahawk Chop/Chant business starts up. I think all right-minded people can agree that the drone of Ah-ah-ah-ah-ahhh...Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah... is just about as annoying as anything in the world of sports.

I'm pretty sure I WOULD hate FSU if, like some other teams on that list, they had beaten good/great Miami teams in big games. But for whatever reason, when a good/great Miami team has run into a good/great FSU team, the results have tended to be great games that ended up with UM on top.

Certainly, it's not FSU's fans that keep me from hating them. They're only a rung below Gator fans, Buckeye Fans and Golden Domers in the douchebag fan rankings.

Hurricanes LT Ereck Flowers practicing, but availability for Florida State unknown

By Matt Porter, caneswatch.blog.palmbeachpost.com
November 10th, 2014

CORAL GABLES – Ereck Flowers clearly wants to play against Florida State. The question is whether his knee injury will let him.

Flowers, UM’s standout left tackle, was present and participating Monday as players began preparing for Saturday’s prime-time home game against the Seminoles (8 p.m., ABC). Flowers missed the Hurricanes’ most recent game with a knee injury.

His availability is one topic coach Al Golden will address Monday with reporters. Golden said in a WQAM radio appearance Monday morning he would not count out Flowers returning.

Flowers, a 6-foot-6, 322-pound junior, suffered a meniscus injury Oct. 23 against Virginia Tech and had a minor surgical procedure. He missed UM’s 47-20 win over North Carolina on Nov. 1. The Hurricanes (6-3, 3-2 ACC) were off last week as the Seminoles (9-0, 5-0) improved their winning streak to 25 games, the nation’s longest active run.

Also seen at practice: sophomore running back Gus Edwards, who suffered a sprained ankle against UNC. He was seen carrying a slight limp while running at full speed. He is expected to play.

* According to UM, a few thousand tickets have not been sold as of Monday morning. StubHub.com lists 5,762 tickets available beginning at $118 and change. VividSeats.com has tickets beginning at $94. SeatGeek.com has tickets beginning at $105.

* ABC’s broadcast crew for Saturday is Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Heather Cox.

Hope you all are well.

Tough game this weekend; we played perhaps the toughest and equal team we have played in a long time. They do the same stuff I do...old school, fundamental run the ball play great D man up football. We scored first, then they drove one near half time. It was 7-7 all of the third quarter....good weather intense match up!!!!

Fundamentals win games in the clutch, no trickery or tomfoolery. We made a big stand that had them backed up; they punted, but my WR caught it on the run at the 50 and took it to the 10. 2 plays later we punched it in off tackle to take a 14-7 lead. They tried a reverse on the ensuing KO but our coverage was really good and we had them at the 15. They went to their spread stuff.....thats when I get you. I pressured with the 44 stack and 46 D sets and they went 0-3....2 incompletes had to be thrown away due to the pressure and tight man....3rd down we sacked them at the 5. 4th and 20....games getting away from them...just tried reverse on KO....I smelled a rat....4 minutes+ left....and of course I have all my TOs so do they.....I burn one, call my D over and tell them watch the fake no way punt with 4 and change left in a game to go to the conference title game.....but lets fake their fake....I send my guy deep....all my guys calling return return.....we line up dead set still....snap a little low, they shuttle it to protector who gets 3...we take it on the 8.
Next play I spread 4 wide 2 each way motion my tailback from left to right form the flank.....31 trap up the middle with my fullback....TD!!!!!

They get it back go 4 throws no completes as pressure is killer!!! We kick a 18 yarder on third down....just for practice to know we can do it...

We are playing for Southern Conference title after knocking off the 2 best teams in the tournament who can play with us the last 2 weeks.
We play a good team Sat...they are the Cinderella as they have pulled 2 upsets as better teams over looked them. Guy is a great coach, young kid who played HS with some of my guys 15 years ago. They are good and it will be another challenge, a hard days work.
If we can find a way to win, we go to SB. Busy week to prepare, hope Canes are getting ready for FSU. Go Canes Beat FSU!!!

We had a bunch of defensive plays against Duke and Louisville early in the season.

Don't understand why our good defensive play is being considered such a recent phenomenon.

In hindsight giving up 28, basically their lowest point total of the year, to GT doesn't look terrible considering 9 games in they're droppping 40-50 on everyone this season.

2016 WR Commit Bruce Jr. Updates the Latest
Tito Benach:

2016 WR Commit Bruce Jr. Updates the Latest
The St. Thomas Aquinas Raiders had an offensive outburst last Friday as they pummeled Deerfield Beach 45-7. 2016 WR Sam Bruce contributed along with fellow Hurricane commit Jordan Scarlett as they combined for four touchdowns.

“It almost feels fake because he plays off my energy and I play off of his and thats just how we play our game. All of us we come together, we pray together and we get the job done and thats how it’s been going all season.”

While many feel that Bruce and Scarlett headline the Raiders offense, Bruce is adamant about all the other players in the offense and how they help.

“We have a lot of weapons, we have Jawuan Harris. We even have young guys like Trevon Grimes and he does a great job in the offense. He’s definitely gonna be aspect of the offense next year; We got Jake Rizzo and he’s a gunslinger. We’re all contributing and making a difference in the game.”

Bruce committed to Miami this past summer and chose the Hurricanes over the Seminoles and Ohio State. With the Hurricanes and Seminoles set to face off next week, Bruce is excited to see the two in-state rivals clash.

“I know it’s going to be a great one. I’m definitely looking for an upset, I know a lot of people think FSU is gonna have this game out of the water, but I definitely think Miami can win.”

The 5’9 160 pound receiver has been impressed with the Hurricanes play of late and is specifically intrigued by the offense led by true freshman Brad Kaaya.

“I think they’re playing well, I think there in straight attack mode. That’s what they need to do against FSU, they need to play a great game. (On Kaaya) He’s getting experience right now and then when I come in he will be a Vet.”

Bruce has plans of enrolling early for his senior season in hopes to get a real connection with Kaaya.

“Things will be clicking and we can build chemistry during the offseason. I plan to get out of school early and get in time for the spring.”

Throughout the process Scarlett and Bruce have consistently vocalized their solid commitment to Miami and Bruce voiced it once again.

“I’m all in on Miami.”

So what’s Bruce’s prediction for the Miami-Florida State game?

“Miami by ten.”

To me it wasnt the point total against GT, it was the staffs inability to adjust (or plain stubbornness) and we got beat by the same stuff over and over and over and never made an adjustment. This more aggressive defense/play calling is certainly a "recent phenomenon" imo

It's not a moral victory, it's a comparison that's now based on a very large sample size.

That was a team loss, the Louisville game was on the offense and the Husker game falls on the D.

We're playing much better now, on both sides of the ball, going into our game of the year. Last year at this point was pretty much the opposite case. Can't ask for anything more than that.

The History on one of the Greatest Rivalries in Sports: Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles

by dnordwall

The Miami Hurricanes and the Florida State Seminoles remains one of the best rivalries in all of sports, National Championships on the line, #1 and #2 ranked match ups, recruiting battles are some of the reasons why. On Saturday Night, The Miami Hurricanes (6-3, 3-2 ACC) take on the Florida State Seminoles (9-0, 6-0 ACC) on Prime time on ABC at 8 ET.

The game is massive game for the Miami Hurricanes not just for the winning the coastal Division, but for the program. The Florida State Seminoles, coming off a National Championship, are on 25 game win streak and a four-game win streak against the Hurricanes. The Canes fought hard in the first half last year, but the talent was simply not enough. This year, the Canes look to make history once again by defeating the undefeated Seminoles.

This whole point shaving thing is kind of suspicious! I guess the kid that put the $5,000 bet in played with Winston in HS and is his best friend. His buddy put the bet in on the first half (FSU -2.5) and took Louisville....Turns out that's when Winston had his worst half of his career. Where does a kid get $5,000 to place a bet? There's obviously a money trail somewhere that links someone to Winston.

FSU vs. Miami: Three reasons why each team wins

There isn't the same hype as a season ago, but once again Miami provides what is likely the last test for Florida State before the postseason. In 2013, Miami was a 21-point underdog and Florida State covered that spread, but Las Vegas projects this one to be much closer.

This season's revival of this once great rivalry brings together a Florida State team that enjoys being on the ropes and a Miami team playing its best football of the season.

Jared Shanker offers three reasons why the No. 2 Seminoles will remain undefeated, and Matt Fortuna makes the case for the upset-minded Canes.

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/76968/fsu-vs-miami-three-reasons-why-each-team-wins

CaneRock

The defensive scheme was just as responsible in all 3 losses as the offense was...I don't give a damn what the stats say. All three teams that beat us MANHANDLED! us up front.

I saw one play in the NU game, where an O-Lineman washed Kirby so far down the line, that Kirby knocked down Crawford...that $h!t looked like the 8 pin knocking down the 10 pin in BOWLING!

But the defense looks better now, defenders, particularly the LBs, are playing more downhill...HALLELUJAH!

Go Canes

The only thing that got manhandled in the Louisville game was our o-line.

They've played much, much better since then.

CaneRock

The D-Line got manhandled in the UL game...maybe not in the 1st 1-1 ½ Qs, but they got washed down to...SHOULDER TO SHOULDER!

Go Canes

This is being manhandled?

They did nothing until our D was completely gassed. Our offense had four plays or less on 9 of our first 11 drives that night and had only two possessions in that span go longer than even 2 minutes.

Somebody posted this on CIS, and I agree. The running game has gotten much better since we've Dobard more PT. Couple of posts from that thread:

DMoney: "A few thoughts:

- We ran a ton of 12 and 22 personnel. About a month ago, WestEndZone told me that he felt we played best with two tight ends on the field. Coley must've seen the same thing, because we've been heavy with Dobard and Walford lately. Both guys are big and powerful at the point of attack while still being receiving threats, and it's no coincidence we've been so successful running the ball with them on the field. I'd like this trend to continue against FSU."

dg151: "6.9 per carry in 11 personnel, 7.8 in 12 this year (excluding FAMU).

Both at 8.7 last 3 games, 11 actually a bit more consistent, 12 had a few big plays. 15/37 went 10+ from 11, 12/51 went 10+ from 12.

We're definitely running more from under center than earlier in the year. Probably a bit too much inside zone on under center plays from 11. We almost exclusively run inside zone at the TE in that formation. Hopefully see a nice counter from that against FSU."

The Dude

Was listening to Doug Gotllieb. He was saying that everyone should be taking FSU. He said "Florida State, you're welcome America." I hope he's eating crow Saturday night and we can all tell him to go to hell. I hate his show but ESPN was on break.

Yes, the offense and running game is even better with Walford and Dobard on the field. Duke is going to beast of them. fsu may look down but their linebackers can't cover quick outs to Duke and co. We got this.. Saturday will be the best game coached under Al Golden #trusttheprocess

Win or lose, I'm hoping this is our best, most complete game yet.

This Date in Hurricanes History...November 10th, 2001 Brought to you by the UM Sports Hall of Fame....

UMSHoF member Ed Reed may have saved Miami's season with a 91 yard lateral return after Matt Walters' interception of a Boston College pass in the last minute of the game to send the Hurricanes home with an 18-7 victory over the Eagles before a Chestnut Hill crowd of 44,500.

With Miami leading 12-7, under 30 seconds remaining and Boston College at Miami's 9 yard line, Mike Rumph deflected a Brian St. Pierre pass, that Walters caught and began returning, before Reed ripped the ball from his hands and outran a BC defender to the end zone to preserve Miami's victory...and most likely, it's 2001 National Championship season.

UMSHoF member QB Ken Dorsey had an unusually sub-par game, only 20 of 41 passing for 222 yards and 4 interceptions. Kicker Todd Sievers gave the Canes a 9-0 halftime lead with three 2nd quarter field goals, and added another to tie the school record with 4 in the game. UMSHoF member Clinton Portis had 160 yards on 36 carries.

I remember that game. I was on the east side of orlando watching my son play soccer...listening to the game on the radio...actually i missed the first half but was on the edge of my seat when Reed got the hand off and put the game out of reach... good old days

Let's put mikes all over the band of the hour and blast the sound everywhere in the stadium just bury the war chant in our home.

Make it feel like a home game in our house!

Find something to make some noise and triple the number of the band members...do something with the audio Blake James...Lol...

I just can't stand the FSU war chant in our house...Bury them with loud music...Rock you like a Hurricane! Everytime they do their stupid war chant.


Go Canes!!! F__K You FSU!
