I remember a time when I wished Miami had London instead of Shannon. London now looks like he has some of the Shannon disorder?

I was 4 years old in 1980. My Canesspace FAM have a great night. We will convene tomorrow to discuss the day's slate of Games.

Actually it's exactly what it means.

100% WRONG! Try again! That's just like saying Bo Jackson was better at baseball because he stopped playing football...no he stopped playing because of Tampa Bay punkass!

But of course you would think that because Golden is yet to make a mistake in yo eyes!

86Cane

Corn = Choc = Bo: They are ALL great athletes who can do, play and be what they want.

I am NOT equating them as far as talent level just saying they all have special skills that allow multiple outcomes.

You dipping in the Kool-aid and don't even know the flavor!

For the record...

First of all me and Corn are both cool with him playing corner...matter of fact I PREFER he play corner! Why? Because NFL teams are constantly looking for good corners! Now him not starting is another issue with Me.

Secondly I'm not arguing for him to play RB RIGHT NOW. My argument is about the fact that no one can say he wouldn't have done better on offense, which is a FACT! How do I know? Because he didn't get a chance for us to see if he woulda been better so we'll NEVER KNOW!

WWIN

Go Canes... don't respond to my post YOU deem negative if you don't respond to my post that's not negative!!!

Thanks!

Go Canes

There's a service rating Corn the best corner in the nation. The best of the best. So to be better at RB he'd also have to be rated #1 wouldn't he?

Regardless, I could care less. He's a hell of a playmaker and to my untrained eye he's at the perfect position to make a ton of plays for us then millions for himself.

And of course this has nothing to do with coach Golden. Don't have any idea why you'd even mention that.

Lurker

He's way better off playing corner.

Way smart move by Golden. You've got to give him that, if nothing else.

golden made the best career choice he could have ever made for Corn, and straight data backs that up.

He can't be the #1 DB in the nation when he doesn't even start on a unranked team... based on your philosophy... so that rating system is flawed!

I said offense not RB... but I brought up RB because of the situation with Dallas Crawford... and if you ask me Dallas is a better RB than safety! I think slot WR would have been his position

Still can't believe Cincy played Gunner last night. Absurd move on 5 days rest. Selfish.

It was a NORMAL move... when someone comes in as a athlete that either played RB, QB, or WR in high school they are going to either switch to DB or keep playing offense. Let's not act like this was a move that most coaches wouldn't have done. Look at Gibson at Ohio state... is Meyer a genius for switching him?

2 things to ponder on the bye week.

1. Which I have been thinking abut for a while, when was the last time you have ever heard an announcer say the words Miami, Defense and Disguise in any sentence prior to the snap?

2. Thoughts on Mike London?

CaneRock

LMAO! @ lauding the Corn switch as a genius move, when Golden abysmally struck out on DB after DB after DB after DB in SoFlo.

VERY interesting:

Defensive Play Calling

Miami’s defense was much more even on the play calling for the defensive line playing 2 gap or 1 gap technique compared to the FAU game. Miami played 1 gap technique on 15 snaps, averaging 6.1 yards on these runs. Nebraska averaged 3.5 yards on the 10 snaps Miami 2 gapped.

For formations, Miami lined up in a 3-4 on 31 snaps, allowing 3.7 yards on these plays. Miami played 19 snaps in a 4-3, allowing 4.8 yards per. Miami played nickel on 32 snaps allowing 8.1 ypp. Miami blitzed on 20 pass plays, with Nebraska averaging 8.2 on these plays. When rushing 3 or 4, Miami averaged giving up 4.8 yards on 37 pass attempts.

Posted by: 30CINCO | September 25, 2015 at 01:56 PM

Interesting. I was keeping track of the 3-4 vs 4-3... For a little while at least... And noticed much more 3-4. the D was improved thru 3 quarters. Besides the alignments the other change noticed was much better tackling.

If they can fix the pass D this could be a great season. Knocking the ball out Of the receivers hands with a big hit is a great way to negate bad coverage but against Better, bigger receivers won't be as effective.

I'm rooting for D'no. I would like nothing more than to see him succeed.

Go Canes

Me too Epi.

We have such a good young talented squad, the thought of this staff failing and having to start over makes me ill.

We've had a few minutes of lapses in the last two games, but the overall product has looked absolutely dominant at times.

If this staff can get this team to play with that kind of focus and avoid self inflicted mistakes, we can and will have a hell of a season.

There is no doubt this can be a springboard to a great resurgence if that happens, because the 16 class is LOADED.

86Cane

Watch this video on Elder and tell me he is no good with the ball in his hands:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxfKkyYvdeM

Go Canes

Don't think anyone is saying he's not good with the ball. His punt returns and high school stats prove that.

Just think it's pretty tough to be a better RB than DB if you're being considered the best one in the country right now.

Like I said last night, don't really care. Just incredibly happy Golden struck out on all those other players, had no choice, then Corn made himself into the beast he's become, all by himself, by complete luck because our staff has no clue what was best for him, with no coaching, at all.

Thanks Tim Irvin.

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

No one, I repeat, NO ONE said that he was not good with the ball in his hands, nor did anyone say he wouldn't be a good RB/WR.

What was said was, he is way better at DB than he would be at RB/WR.

There's no way he'd be perceived as the #1 player at RB/WR right now, like he is at CB, grading out as the best in the country.

That's been my argument the entire time. Bucking the perception he'd be BETTER at RB than DB, which clearly he would not be, because he wouldn't be ahead of Fournette, Chubb, Cook, etc.

Go Canes

Have this feeling Duke is gonna go off on the Raiders, I just can't muster the strength to put him into the starting lineup over Latavius Murray and CJ Anderson

86Cane

Ohio and Go...you both said Corn would not be any good at RB so I am going to have to fire you both. U ARE FIRED!

I wanted him at WR anyway so whatever.

#GoCornBeatCincy

CaneRock

Corn's HS HLs look like Clinton Portis' HS HLs.

CaneRock

In hindsight, judging by His HS HLs, you could kinda see Corn would be a good DB at the next level. Kid had what I would call action figure hips even at the RB position.

Go Canes

I did?

All I said is if he was better at RB than DB he'd be playing RB.

Cause if he was better than where he's ranked at DB then he'd be Fournette, who is #1 at RB.

Honestly, don't know how this has turned into a thing. Kid is an absolute beast.

Just glad we got him late, he's excelling and we are 3-0!

Re-booting the program would be a disaster. Obviously a repeat of last season and there isn't really a choice, but anybody rooting for Ls is doing so out of personal dislike for the coaches, not the program's best interests.

You're right about the talent. I was unsure coming into the season what we had, but we do have players on both sides of the ball. Considering the schedule, we could play in a major bowl game. Tighten up 3rd downs and RZ offense, keep tinkering with the pass D and maybe consider putting somebody else in to coach ST, and it's not outlandish to see a 1 loss season. Of course that means no more losses to teams who will be home for the holidays.

If the above happens we should be looking at an epic signing day. And if that happens, sky's the limit for the next few years, which I think is slightly more preferable than starting from scratch with some second tier coach trying to find his way.

Go Canes

I think he's having bye week anxiety issues!

Yep and yep.

Thursday's game will be a good indicator. Cincy sucks but they can throw and they can score.

We cannot let them get a ton of momentum and be stuck in a tight game late.

They need to go in and handle their business against an inferior team.

Lurker

Corn's move to corner will pay big time career wise.

Study the NFL drafts over the last several years, and review not only that but comparative salaries by position. Running backs have been drastically devalued in terms of earning potential, as well as draft position. A cornerback will make way more bank than the average NFL running bank.

Great move for the young man's NFL career as long as he continues to improve and hone his craft. Also, are people going to tell me he would have been made a CB at every school he would have gone to?

Let me just give me one example, and I don't even know if he was ever considering going to UF or not, but I'd bet you they would've made him into an offense of player at UF, Because they're desperate for offensive skill players, which would not have been as good for his future NFL potential.

We agree!! It's a new day on CS! The Pope's message has infected us all!

Lurker

What? Is something going on with the Pope? I must have missed it.

BigWindyCane1

The Canes have a lot of talent on this team. These coaches are developing future NFL players and its time for the results to show on the field.

Its simple - I would like to see the players improve their fundamentals and execution and the coaches improve on teaching the players and putting them in the best position to succeed every week every week and everything else will take care of itself.
