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?

#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.

canezilla

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.

86Cane

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

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | September 23, 2015 at 09:41 AM

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.


Lurker

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.

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.

PRAYERS!

As a parent of a football player, that's some scary stuff. Hopefully they're just taking precautionary measures.

Go Canes

Reports now say it was only one player.

Bad but better news than before

Some on twitter reporting it was Gayot. No official word from reporters or anything yet.

To clear up rumors, UM has confirmed ONE player transported from practice to hospital after apparent collison. Being called precautionary

Ohio_Cane

So here's what we know:

TWO players collided head to head.

ONE player airlifted.

I've never heard of a "precautionary airlift", but that's what it's being called.

Some saying it's LB Marques Gayot

CaneRock


Being called precautionary

If so...GOOD!

Lurker

It's not even clear if there was an airlift. The helicopter was there, but there was also an ambulance.

TheeMackJones

Again, WHY the conflicting reports??

What happened to MEDIA integrity!!

Where did all the Edward R. Murrow's, Woodward's and Bernstein's go?!!

CaneRock

Manny said the player was airlifted.

It's not even clear if there was an airlift. The helicopter was there, but there was also an ambulance.

Posted by: Lurker | September 23, 2015 at 12:50 PM
--------------------------------------------

That's true. Miami didn't state the player was airlifted. Others have assumed that because it landed on the field.

Ohio_Cane

From Manny, though: A University of Miami football player was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital Wednesday morning after being injured in practice, a Miami Herald source has confirmed.

TheeMackJones

Adding to the speculation and rumor mill.

Golden CANCELED his weekly ACC presser, so it's must be a SERIOUS injury. Otherwise, why cancel a presser IF the injury is not of a severe pressing nature.

Lurker

Manny's been wrong before.

TheeMackJones

Posted by: Lurker | September 23, 2015 at 01:00 PM

However, U tend to be WRONG most of the time!!

TheeMackJones

Palm Beach Post and Sun-Sentinel CONFIRM what the Herald's Manny reported. ESPN also reporting Hurricane player being airlifted for safe measures and what not.

Ohio_Cane

Manny's been wrong before.

The twittersphere is saying Gayot.

Whoever it is, hopefully the much more important swirling rumor that everything seems ok is true.

Go Canes

And what not?

VA Cane

Soup you are spot on.....you are a very observant man who has STUDIED the game for a long time. You know the game, you tell it like it is, you don't add a lot of fluff.......you are a great analyst of this game and the Canes....in short you would be an incredible coach; why? REALITY!!!!!!! What a concept eh?

There are those who do not see it that way.....they do not look at reality.

Thats my first approach.....face facts deal in reality teach develop execute fundamentals over and over, combine the individual talent and skills with a team of angry aggressive passionate fundamentally sound players, give them dynamic schemes sets and plays, develop a we not me attitude, learn and teach new concepts constantly....with a foundation firmly in fundamentals, make adjustments, manage people games time.....all while everyone gives 110%.....Apocalypse Now Death or victory....what happens....you WIN!!!!

If I make any statements, they are from what I do with my guys....they are never aimed at you; you KNOW this game!!
Go Coach Soup Go Canes!!!!!1

VA Cane

I feel, well hope, the D we saw through the first 50+ minutes better indicate who we are.

Agreed....and with dedication and hard work, we are, as you said, getting better depth,and it is getter brighter.
I see much better teamwork, great attitudes....these guys are enjoying going out on that field and playing. Thats a nod to coaching and development of players...mentally and physically!!!

Go Canes Beat UC!!!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

Anytime someone is airlift, it's not a very good sign. Lets pray he's OK!!!!

86Cane

Prayers for the injured player.

Terrance Sullivan

Praying for injured Player!

thirstybuzzardcane

If it's Gayot that got hurt, then our linebackers took a huge hit yet again. We were not very good at linebacker to begin with!

Lurker

I don't care too much about linebacker depth right now, that's for later. We still don't know exactly what happened and what the player condition is.

Matt Porter (I know, SOUP, U hate him):


Injured Hurricanes player airlifted to hospital
September 23, 2015 | Filed in: 2015 season, Football, Matt Porter.
COMMENTS 0
CORAL GABLES — A University of Miami football player was airlifted to a local hospital shortly before noon Wednesday following an injury suffered at practice.

In a statement, UM said the player was “transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons.”

Several sources close to the situation identified the player as sophomore linebacker Marques Gayot, a Boynton Beach native who played at Park Vista High.

Without identifying him, several UM sources, including Athletic Director Blake James, expressed confidence to the Post the injured player was OK and fully responsive. James said the player’s family has been notified of the situation.

An eyewitness told the Post a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue helicopter landed on UM’s Greentree Practice Field before noon. An ambulance arrived first and, per protocol, would have made the call for the trauma helicopter.

Gayot, 6-foot-1 and 222 pounds, played safety as a freshman. Playing weak-side linebacker this fall, he has 7 tackles, 2.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks.

The situation came to light when coach Al Golden did not make his scheduled appearance on the ACC’s weekly coaches teleconference.

Hurricanes players and coaches are not scheduled to meet with the media in person until Sunday. UM (3-0) has a bye this week and visits Cincinnati (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1 (ESPN).

The last UM player known to be airlifted to a hospital for an injury suffered during competition was receiver Herb Waters, who suffered a strained neck last Nov. 23 at Virginia. Waters, now a senior, has 194 yards on 11 receptions this year.

VA Cane

Worst thing I go through, over the years is my guys getting hurt. Yes I teach them the correct and right ways, but I push them to be tough, hit hard and often. When they get hurt, and they have, I feel very bad. I am always with them at hospital doctor whatever; its on me. Every great once in a while I think I will get out of this game. You can and will get hurt; I did, my Dad Uncle Godfather did....you never know what will happen. I pray good things for our players at UM, hope all involved will be ok.

These kinds of things really make you think.

herbieibis

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah all these defensive problems can be fixed but in what decade are we talking about. Soup that wasn't u standing next to the anti-cane, DENO was it?
We wouldn't have depth issues at LB, if we would pay more attention to it in recruiting, year to year.
Cincy is going to throw the ball all over the field, so AL U better find some pass rushers, Pronto.

thirstybuzzardcane

Look like they did it.

CaneRock

Sometimes those type of traumas are a result of the most mundane things. Remember being a practice one time, wet conditions, and our DE came around the edge, slipped, and ran His head into a players leg. I didn't even see it, you wouldn't even think a player could get hurt like that, scary stuff. He ended up being alright though, TG!

Yup! That's why I called him an idiot.....Should of called him a fukin idiot!

CaneRock

My son suffered an apparent head/neck injury in a game. Was running the ball, got tackled, and while fighting for yardage, a defender horse-collared em' from the front, and pulled His head toward the ground...I'll never forget that sound. He ended up being alright also.

"An ambulance arrived first and, per protocol, would have made the call for the trauma helicopter."
