Glad we have some extra prep time before our first real road test, but it sucks not having a game to look forward to for two straight Saturdays.

Go Canes!

Good morning my fellow Canes! 3-0 is better than 2-1...I'll take it. Few thoughts...we have a great QB...our RBS look like they are going to be great. ..WRS following the same path. ..Def we know is still a work in progress. ...but, we got some ball hawks back there for the first time in a long time. These things give us a chance each game. ...just execute consistently. We, are in a conundrum. ..with AG...if we fail. .he goes...if we succeed. .he stays. ...can't have it both ways. Banners flying are not cool. ..now I hear FSU fan starting a "keep AL campaign "....could this be the impetus for our CANES to rally and finally get back that Us vs the world mentality? I can only assume. .I'm petty should light a fire within. ..my hope any way. God bless and Go CANES! !!

Interesting RZ stats:

UM's #1 in RZ scoring attempts per game...#2 in RZ scoring...& #67 in RZ scoring percentage (81.25%).

86Cane

Mark from Atlanta...welcome to The Space!

Post here, post often.

CaneRock

We're also #17 in Yards Per Play, with the potential to get BETTER!

86Cane

CR...IMHO the way to be successful on offense in the RZ is:

1. A dominant OL.
2. A power running game/RB.
3. A go to big TE (middle) or tall jumper WR (fade to corner).

Not sure we have ANY of those YET?

86Cane

CR...IMHO success on third down defense is:

1. Dominant DL, pass rush, pressure the QB.
2. LBs who can cover TEs/RBs in space.
3. Tight man coverage underneath on the outside with safeties over the top.

Not sure we do any of that either?

86Cane

But then what do I know, I'm just a fan and never played the game so I could be completely wrong?

Most likely wrong. No expert experience means u have little to no clue. Sorry.

#1?...I think the left side of our OL is the go to side for the run game.

#2?...We don't have a big back per se, but we're doing pretty good with Yearby & Walton.

#3?...We probably don't have a go to TE, but a combo of Herndon,Dobard, and possibly Washington ain't bad. As far as jump ball WRs, I think we have several...Njoku,Cager, & Brady. And Waters is ain't that bad when He has to go up for it.

Miami has scored on 56.4 percent of its drives, which ranks eighth in FBS, but its TD rate of 33.3 percent is just 39th. The Hurricanes are finding the end zone on just 47.6 percent of their red-zone drives, 108th nationally. Since the start of 2014, only five Power 5 teams have been worse..

CaneRock

As far as 3D defense, I can only judge off the NU game.

Armstrong's mobility threw us for a loop, His mobility allowed their offense to extend those pass plays. From a DB perspective, that's a long time to be covering a WR.

Armstrong's legs were equivalent to having an extra OLmen out there.

I know, what was I thinking? LOL

CaneRock

Zilla, I hear ya', but we were up 23 with less than 10 minutes to go, and we ended up needing an OT INT & FG to win the game. The offense did MORE THAN ENOUGH to win the game...SHEEZ!, how big of a margin does the the defense need to win a game...!

Go Canes

I think soup needs to ban this 86 guy.

When will you get it, you don't really "know" the game!

CaneRock

Also, that hurry up offense that NU ran in the 4th, teams like Cincy & Clemson run that ALL GAME LONG. Like I said, that pass rush needs to tighten up.

CaneRock

Go Canes...you have anything constructive to add to the convo besides DUM@$$ SMART@$$ remarks?

Go Canes

Don't think it's a simple as the D just playing poorly.

The penalties killed offensive drives, the targeting cost us more yards and players.

Playing without Grace, Carter and especially Bush late was huge. I absolutely agree we need to rush the passer much, much better. But I feel, well hope, the D we saw through the first 50+ minutes better indicate who we are.

Recruiting: Miami Hurricanes going down under; two hoops commits on the way?

Mark from Atlanta

Spirited conversation about the CANES...Love it. ..we all agree the Def is suspect. ..3rd down and red zone are atrocious. ...but, with chemistry. ..these can be fixed. ..or improved. CINCINNATI will be a good road test...Thursday on ESPN is BIG for their program. But, despite above mentioned flaws. ...Kaaya Yearby, Walton. .Corn...etc...give us a chance. ..I am a long time Canes fan...51 yrs young born and raised in Ft Lauderdale. ...this FSU fan campaign for "keep AL " banner. ..think of FSU fan with posters, etc...in the stands..."keep AL "...being on TV...mocking US! Could this create the "stick it to 'em" attitude we all have been dying to see once again? God bless my fellow Canes.

Lurker

Eat that snickers

Gin & Tonic (with a twist of lime and what not, hold the chit)

The great Canes teams have been more physical than finesse. Control the line, control the game.

This ones for Soup & KYcane?!?!?!?!................That's what she said!

j.w.

Two players airlifted from practice field. Prayers needed, guys.

Lurker

Developing situation: 2 Miami players reportedly involved in collision. Possibly head on. It's too early to speculate, but what I've heard doesn't sound good.

I hope it's nothing, and if it is I pray for them.

Lurker

I heard head on collision, so I assumed it was auto related.

In any event, prayers are needed.

UM release indicates that a football player was injured and transported to hospital. No one named. Seems serious to make this announcement.

I can confirm the injured @CanesFootball player was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital. Still waiting word on who it is.
