My main man Jessie Palmer, along with his partners in arm Joey Tessitore and Davey Pollack are the game analysts. With Sweet Kaylee Hartung on the sidelines.

Give it up LAME one! Nobody is going to win this argument. Because it's obvious you're going to believe what ' you want to believe. ' And your PAST PERFORMANCES on the blog suggest that notion!

Oh one more thing. Tubberville ISN'T that stupid to play Kiel after his first concussion!! Again, if the team physician gave Tubberville and Kiel the A-OK, then Gunther was going to play against Memphis. Even if he came back too early from that first concussion as you claim.

jw, I'm just at a loss about this program of ours. Just does not make sense why this drought has lasted so long. People can make excuses but we're in the ACC Coastal...

I will lose it if we don't beat FSU...[]_[]

TheeMackJones

Football matters which will become a reality after Thursday night.

# 15 will pass for another TD, which extend his streak of SEVENTEEN games with a touchdown pass.

Miami will WIN the turnover battle and continue to be one of the top three teams in turnover margin.

TheeMackJones

Miami, Florida is CURSED! That's why the drought has lasted ten seasons.

Who can argue with that?

No one.

Go Canes!!

Lmbo! Butch Jones literally referenced a "chart" for why he did what he did. When statistics cost you the game. Wow.

You're right. The CaneSpace concussion protocol needs to be implemended immediately in TMJ. We can't let him back in until he's 100% cleared. Those few remaining brain cells must be protected at all costs.

K. Goal kick. Explain why teams do this when it looks like the outcome is 50/50. Why not just keep possession and move the ball?

Canes faithful. ....somebody assure me this Thursday night game is not a TRAP. I know we can score. ..but, Cincinnati really putting up some ridiculous offensive numbers. ...and with 2 starting safeties watching 1st half. ..Cincinnati is going to look to exploit us! Donofrio better be on top of his collective shizat! This is their Super Bowl! Biggest crowd ever expected. .....somebody make me feel better going into this one! God bless you all!

The Dude

For the people effected by the amateurs running the blog, lol.

Mike Greenberg is an ass, he just says stupid things...as does Jemelle Hill. Greeny said a huge streak is about to end if GA ends up favored vs Bama...72 game streak in which Bama is favored.....what a foolish stat....just play dammit....Greeny shut up. Jemelle Hill said the kid from LSU should sit out next year then go to NFL. These journalists .....who never played and must not watch cause of the stupid shit they say....just need to go away. His and Hers is horrible show....they are both idiots.

First off happy birthday to the Shark of Canespace (VA) and reigning Canespace Rookie of the Year (Epi).

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | September 28, 2015 at 05:33 AM

I don't want to give the impression that I'm upset we're 3-0... BUT... I don't see the improvements you're referring to. I see a sloppy football team and coming from a coaching background, (although not anything extraordinary) I know that what I'm seeing has to be fixed or the other shoe WILL drop, only a matter of time. I just don't see it with Al, the kind of obsession with excellence a coach needs to win at the highest levels. Now, Pete Carroll didn't fit the typical mold either and that guy had monster teams so there's hope. Al becoming excellent would be thr best case scenario for everyone involved with Miami football and there's absolutely no doubt about it. Miami would get to cash in on the risk they took when they hired a coach that really wasn't ready. However I don't believe for a second that if Al does get fired, Miami's in for a massive overhaul. I have given Al credit, despite what my detractors will say, on multiple occasions for his quality work in making Miami a real football program again. This thing was really broken when he took over from Randy who really was in over his head.

Posted by: The Dude | September 28, 2015 at 09:42 AM


^^^ I meant to add that our conference isn't world beaters this year so we may catch a few teams being as sloppy as us. FSU looks beatable but they did last year too. There's a chance. Maybe as the stakes get higher the team gets focused? But my concern is they're being taught the wrong things. As of now, I'll take as many wins as possible and an ACC CG appearance with a bowl win so that we can have some steam going into 2016 looking for a bid at the playoffs.

Posted by: The Dude | September 28, 2015 at 09:50 AM


Thanks Dude,

I see your points, and l am trying to see if we progress. I want more as well, and there is only one way to see if this important season comes to fruition......play the games and see. I do expect to beat Cincy.....VT, Clemson, FSU, GT will be tough games. Don't know how good any of them are, but all will be a challenge for us. Play the games, give the guys dynamic sets and plays, learn from mistakes, keep teaching coaching developing, stay on the fundamentals, make adjustments and learn as a coach as, well.....be positive aggressive teach we ...give it all you got,.....Apocalypse Now!
Time will tell!

Posted by: VA Cane | September 28, 2015 at 09:57 AM


Oh and about all the draft picks and stuff. Those guys are always wrong this early, NFL teams aren't even evaluating yet. There's a lot more NFL talent on this team than they listed. Burns, Elder, Bush, both Jenkins, Grace, AQM, McCord are all draftable players in the first 4 rounds. They still have 9 games to put some good stuff on tape, especially the pass rush guys that just need a little more coaching up.

Posted by: The Dude | September 28, 2015 at 09:58 AM


Posted by: VA Cane | September 28, 2015 at 09:57 AM

They say the best coaches are the guys that get teams to improve as the year goes on... 6-7 last year sure says a lot about Al if that holds true. But as a student of history I've learned history is only that, it's only a record of what's happened and doesn't mean very much as to what will happen.

Side note, you know how sometimes a color guy doing the game will use the yellow lines on tv during a replay to explain an excellent play call on offense or defense? I can't remember the last time some one did that for a Miami coach...

Posted by: The Dude | September 28, 2015 at 10:03 AM


So many of these ESPN people are jerks....they have their agenda and spouse it. Greenberg says stupid shit always wanting to rank things as the best...when there is no clear cut best. Buster Olney Tim Kirtchen rating and ranking people by stupid formulas not facts....Olney given dumbass Bryce Harper a pass for loafing....those guys are boneheads....Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith.....phucking idiots....his and hers morons....Colin Cowherd....they got rid of him...jerk....and the worst....Kenny Mayne....and Lebatard and Papi.....horrible!

Posted by: VA Cane | September 28, 2015 at 10:26 AM


Thanks for the bday wishes guys....

Dude... We've had only one game to measure, but there's been improvement. Coley had a better game plan than we've seen, and D'no used the fronts we've been looking for. Not to mention better tackling. There are problems, obviously, but they took a Step in the right direction.

You're right to be skeptical, four years of the same garbage has made us all cynics. But we didn't even expect the changes we got, so who knows what may be in store. Emphasis on may.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | September 28, 2015 at 11:07 AM


I do not like the 3 4 set.....you have no Woolfork type in there, we get no congestion at the point of attack and on the 2 guys touching the ball...the center and QB.....these next games against good competition will be critical......and pressure congestion sacks tackling containment to's linebacker flow directly to the ball man coverage....will be very important. Unfortunately, NoDPa just does not do this, our D is my biggest concern. I never played D in my career playing or coaching by being passive backing off being nice and soft and letting my opponent punch me in the mouth. I just cannot endorse AlPas and NoDPas style of D.....its so wrong and off base. They are not good D coaches, always my biggest issue. Good guys bad defensive coaches.

Posted by: VA Cane | September 28, 2015 at 11:41 AM


^^^ reminds me of my favorite blitz as a player and coach, right over the center.

Posted by: The Dude | September 28, 2015 at 03:30 PM

I'll assume by "do this" you mean kick it far:


The ball has to leave the penalty area (18 yard box) before it can be touched.

A lot of teams will play a short ball (just outside the penalty area to keep possession, but most teams, (mine included) keep their strikers or even outside midfielders up to take away the short pass to force them to kick it long.

Also, some teams use this long ball as a way to transition to the opposite side of the field quickly and begin a counter attack. The teams that do this are generally very good in the air (headers flicked on to teammates).

Classic trap game that we will NOT FALL VICTIM TO.

We win handily. 45-17

Ohio_Cane....I like the way you think brother! Just gotta believe, right?

Lurker

Ok, you got me Ohio

Still, they sucked anyway, we don't need them (lol)

Ohio_Cane

Artie Burns said it yesterday in his interview when asked about Cincy and the numbers they put up vs Memphis.

"Memphis had a lot of broken coverages, that's where the big gains came from"

As long as we play the way we have been, we're good. Oh, and we COULD score 100 on them. Golden won't, but we could.

The Dude

K. So when it looks like a punt to the other team it's because defenders were playing the short pass. Makes sense I guess. It seems like a lot of teams are just lobbing the up and hoping for the best.

Ohio_Cane

TD,

If U watch enough soccer, specifically teams that possess the ball well, U will see defenders pretty close and taking away that short pass on goal kicks.

Canezitis

TMJ, this is the only blog I've ever posted, Golden is not my boy, and it doesn't matter what convo they had it was too soon. I agree on Coley, I think it was too soon and I have the same worry for berrios.

CaneRock

No, we ain't good. The same thing that led to broken coverages against Memphis, is the same thing that led to blown coverages against NU...TIME. Although Armstrong brought time with His legs, Cincy buys time with their pass protection, they've only allowed 4 sacks this season.

Give a QB enough time, and He'll tear you to shreds...even a Freshman...TIGHTEN UP!

NativeCane

I think TMJ need to go through the concussion protocal himself, LOL>Posted by: raizecane | September 28, 2015 at 01:40 PM

DO NOT! I repeat SOUP, DO NOT take TMJ out, I got to have my comedy as I toil in the trenches and Im willing to risk permanent damage.....U guys making Native laugh and he needs to laugh!

DEM CANES!!!

CaneRock

I say our winning deficit will be in the teens, something like 41-28-ish.

Go Canes

We left Kiel completely beat up after last year's game. If I remember correctly he completed less than half his passes when we pulled the plug and had at least two picks, maybe three.

We will get plenty of pass rush on their freshman QB and I think we can get 3-5 turnovers.

We are a plus 8 through three games, they are a minus 10.

I expect that trend to continue

47-24 with the 24th point coming late.

CaneRock

I see a tight 3Qs, with us pullin' away in the 4th.

CaneRock

I see a fairly tight 3Qs, with us pullin' away a lil' bit in the 4th.

Canezitis

TMJ, I've never posted on any other blog-this is it. Also, Golden is not my boy. I'm about this U,not about this coach. If he's able to get this team together and start winning like they should, I'd be glad he's our coach; if not, time to move on. It really doesn't matter what Gunner told his coach. It's on the medical staff and the coach as to whether he SHOULD play or not in that scenario. You have a capable back up, why put his future at risk, especially on a short week. I do agree with you on Coley, he didn't look like he was ready yet and I hope they don't rush Berrios back.

Canezitis

Sorry, double post, thought it ate my other one.

360Cane

Riddle me this...

Do you think you can learn to be a great coach or is it either you have it or you don't?

Go Canes

Posted by: Canezitis | September 28, 2015 at 04:55 PM

He did the same thing to me. I offered to never post here again if he could find something from me wherever he said I was supposedly doing it and he of course ignored me.

He's totally out of it, but humorous to read.

j.w.

360- You can learn to be a great coach, Carroll was terrible with the Patriots before he became what he is now, and Belichek wasn't very good with the Browns.) It isn't a lot different than any other job or profession in that respect. Those who learn and don't repeat the same mistakes are the most likely candidates IMO.

Canezitis

^^^^^^ was about to say something similar.

AfriCane

TMJ your concussion argument is the proverbial exercise in futility. You don't see how a twice concussed athlete might have to be held back/out. The NFL just picked up another lawsuit from ex players regarding concussion effects. Plus, Kiel is constantly injured. Remember last year when they played us with a back up because he was injured.

CaneRock

360 - You either got it, or you don't. The ones that don't get fired, or they should. Sometimes the ones that do have it get fired, look at Schottenheimer in SD...guy got fired after a 14-2 season, and they haven't done $h!t since.
