Thank God for tents!!!! All though I missed the rain, had to deal with 2 accidents on the turnpike on the way there! There's an hour of my time wasted!

86Cane

When you hear the term "hunker down" (think like Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina) I mean it was some VERY serious "hunker down" time before the game.

I lived in SoFl most of my life but this was something above average. Like on a scale of 1-10 with 10 the worst this was like an 11!

Soup putting in work to get Zo to E5 lol

Lur-ker

Soup, I figured you would see what I did there. Great headline, very apt.

That was some apocalyptic looking weather wasn't it? You guys must have been improvising to stay dry.

Fortunately, at least this time, I'm not as hardcore, so I didn't get there until about an hour or less before kickoff.

FAU should be an interesting environment, and I'm guessing it's like the UBC but with no Titanic walking distance away.

So it's bring your own or take care of business in the parking lot or tailgate.

Glad our beloved Canes won the opener. Every game is critical. Despite the weather, I can't believe we won by so much. So happy. You all behaved yourselves and that is a good thing. Canes have a reputation to uphold.

j.w.

A win matters, not much you can tell from this one other than they took care of business with an overmatched team, which hasn't always happened over the past few years. The next one hopefully is drama-free again.

thirstybuzzardcane

For the defense to only give up 75 yards of offense is pretty damn good....Now if it was over 200 yards,then I would begin to worry!

Got no problem with what Big O did, somebody in the SoFlo media needed to shock jock His @$$. Whoopin' Bethune was nice & all, but after FAU, it's time for Him to show me somethin' I ain't never seen before. Which is, avenge embarassing losses from the previous season...beat quality opponents...don't play down to inferior opponents...finish strong...and/or win the ACCC & ACCCG. It's time.

Worked the chain gang at my Son's HS game Friday night...when you work the chain gang, you have to stand on the opposing team's sidelines. But listening to how the HC was just berating the official, it's no wonder why kids do cowardly $h!t like the video above.

Go Canes

Why did someone have to shock jock his ass?

Because he didn't know this is a make or break year for him? Or did big fat dOnut, who didn't play football btw (we all know by now this criteria is a must to know anything), knows more about football than our coach?

One is 3-1 against GT, the other is an overweight, pony tail wearing radio host.

I'll take my chances with the former.

Go...go2du is WAY old skool, an original, but rarely comments here. He does not read everyday so he does not know the ins and outs of our daily discussions. We meet him at every game on the WEST side and he is organizing the FAU tailgate events. Good friend of ours!

CaneRock

"Why did someone have to shock jock His @$$"?

Doesn't Big O have a call-in show?...if so, ask Him.

CaneRock

Ohio_Cane...I didn't see the 2nd hit in the first video I saw, But that 2nd hit makes it clear that it was deliberate. And I agree, those kids need some sort of stiff punishment for that cowardly crap.

go2du

Tom thanks, there will be some great info on the tailgate at Cincy also, we have an entire parking area to ourselves. Another restaurant takeover...another pizza joint. I will share all the info as it gets closer.

CaneRock

GO2DU...I agree that coaching & playing are 2 different things, but there hasn't been any College HC that didn't play CFB that's won a NC. With the exception of MAYBE Freeze, the rest of the HCs below aren't even close. And BTW, Welcome to CS:

"Leach is atypical among NCAA Division I head football coaches, in that he did not play football at the college level. He is one of only five such coaches along with Paul Johnson at Georgia Tech, David Cutcliffe at Duke, George O'Leary at UCF, and Hugh Freeze at Ole Miss."

86Cane

CaneRock...so using your logic since Al Golden played college ball then he will win a NC, right?

86Cane

Some think you can't know football without having played football: that you had to have stuck your hand in the dirt to understand what you're seeing when you watch others do it.

Ten FBS head coaches would beg to differ.

That is not a particularly high number in proportion, given there will be 128 teams in college football next season, but it's high considering the bias some in power might give to coaches who have played the game. Doesn't it make sense that they should know better?

Sort of, I guess, but it is not a requirement for the job. In fact, the man who won last year's Walter Camp Coach of the Year award never played a down of college football, and neither did the man who upset Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl.

Here is how they rank from 10-1, based on whom I, in my subjective opinion (which is informed by their body of work), would want to coach my program for the next five years.

CaneRock

SOUP...I did NOT say that a former CFB player turned HC will NEVER win a NC, I said that it hasn't happened, YET. Freeze is close.

Alex D

What's go Legion/Canespace? Thank goodness the Canes are deep at RB and WR. The lost of Gus Edwards and injuries to Berrios and Coley, would be devastating in previous years. That's why some of these high school players should not try to shy away from competition. Happy Labor Day.

Brother Of Penn State Quarterback Christian Hackenberg Is Not Happy With Nittany Lions Offense
Dan Lyons

Yesterday’s season opener was brutal for Penn State. The Nittany Lions, who some thought could win nine or even ten games with a relatively easy schedule, lost to Temple for the first time since 1941. In the 27-10 blowout, quarterback Christian Hackenberg, once thought of as a possible first round pick, had an incredibly poor showing, completing just 11 of 25 passes for 103 yards, no scores, and an interception. Much of the criticism has been directed at offensive coordinator John Donovan—and now that includes members of Hackenberg’s family. Christian’s brother Brandon, a Penn State soccer commit, had this to say:

People have no clue. https://t.co/4bZlsyumGs

— Brandon Hackenberg (@bhackenberg3) September 5, 2015

You have a Ferrari, yet drive 30 miles under the speed limit.

— Brandon Hackenberg (@bhackenberg3) September 5, 2015

Hackenberg is certainly not alone. Penn State football alumni ripped the staff after the loss, and the Nittany Lions were trolled pretty hard by Ohio State and Maryland commits. Depending on who you ask, James Franklin has gone from the next great PSU coach to one on the hot seat in one weekend. Temple is a pretty good team this year, and is a contender to win the AAC, but with the talent at PSU, it is hard to blame fans for considering a loss to the Owls unacceptable.

@wilkensjeune: @CoachColey @GoldenAl Please let's not get anymore of our WR's hurt with that dreaded WR screen that never gain any yrds for last 3 yrs.

Above is an example of some of our "fans", who are literally morons. Tweeting at coaches that player injuries are the coaches fault. We have many ignorant fans like this on social media, and stuttering on the radio.. Fortunately, these idiots, I would bet, rarely or never show up to games. Because you can't be this stupid and figure out how to get to the stadium.

Big O is the pied piper of the idiocy, btw.

Da U N Houston

My beef with the WR screen is that we do not have a dog at WR who is willing to go all out and block for the fellow reciever. If you look at all three we ran to Coley there was NO block. I dayum near might have benched Herb for that piss poor effort on both the ones he was suppose to block on.

If they insist on running that play we might want to put Njoku out there instead of our WR's.

CaneRock

Didn't see the play, but did Coley actually get hurt on that play?...I thought they said He had a pulled hammy?

CaneRock

Damn, Wilkens Jeune looks like Alfono Ribeiro.

Go Canes

Anyone think we could have been running that play like we were because it requires other teams to game plan for it and make them more conscious of it?

Posted by: CaneRock | September 07, 2015 at 11:32 AM

Point being, this idiocy sucks up a lot of oxygen. Especially on the internets or social media, and makes it seem like most of our fans are complete morons.

In reality, our real fans, the ones that actually go to games and support the program, for the most part, aren't this stupid. Whether they want the coaches fired or think they should at least get this year, whether they badmouth Golden or not, that's not the point. At least they support the program.

In sports, the fandom is always second guessing, that's part of the fun, going back and forth and arguing whether this or that was the right call or not. Remember the famous passing play by Seattle in the red zone to end the super bowl, that's a fun discussion.

But moronic idiocy like saying because a certain okay was called,that's the reason a player was hurt: pure stupidity.

There are things you can POSSIBLY hold coaches accountable for (think RG3 in his last playoff game a few years ago) in terms of injury, but this ain't one of them. It's just obvious ignorance.

Lur-ker

* because a certain PLAY was called...

CaneRock

Been running that play since Coley's been OC. A smart DC, a DC who's been around awhile, won't get tunnel syndrome off that 1 play.

Proud to have awarded 3 game balls last night. 1. Coach D & the entire defense. 2. Corn Elder 3. Hunter Knighton pic.twitter.com/sgi3BOMU4a

j.w.

Lur-ker- disagree with a lot of your points on the last two posts. First and foremost, attending games is frankly not possible for a lot of us. We have families and live far away. I can't just drop a grand for a weekend away from them, especially where they have activities like softball and soccer that I don't want to miss. School usually prevents us from going as a group as well. The fact many of us don't attend games doesn't mean we don't care as much as those who do, we simply have other priorities.
As for the WR screen, this play rarely produces big gains for us, or anyone else. I saw 4-5 teams try the same play we run, and I don't recall anyone busting one. This is a play that I just don't get; why not hit the WR while he is running on a short slant and let him use his speed to get free? Having him stand there flat footed waiting for a catch, hoping someone springs him on a block while he goes from 0 to top speed, makes it too easy to defend in my opinion.

I agree with your point that there isn't any evidence that WR is more likely to get hurt on the WR screen as opposed to any other play. But the lack of productivity from the play is fair criticism.

Lur-ker

Posted by: j.w. | September 07, 2015 at 12:21 PM

What points do you actually disagree with. You didn't actually say.

1. It's common sense, and taken for granted, that that those "fan" comments don't apply to people that live more than a couple of hours away,. If you live that far away there's a distance exemption. You know that. Of course, we have the likes of Soup, TS, and others. who have my utmost respect. Even UMike gets to games even where he lives, and he has kids. But I'm not throwing shade at people that live a long distance away.

2. The play selection has or doesn't have merit, that's not what's on play. That's a different discussion. My point is the utterly braindead argument that our coaches are getting players injured.

Just reread my comments.

Ohio_Cane

Karma attacks James Connor. Good. Don't feel sorry for rapists.

(And no, it probably won't even make the news, let along get convicted of it)

And yes, I trust my guy inside PITT that much to assume guilt even without the girl coming out and pressing charges

Lur-ker

The play I didn't like from the game was the isolation "lateral" pass to the WR standing on the sideline, hoping that the WR breaks the CB off for a big gain. Easy to diagnose, and BK was throwing those high.

CaneRock

Lurker...depending on the coverage, that's not a bad pass. You should get 6,7, maybe 8 yards a pop if the CB is giving you a good cushion. Gray would be killer on those plays with His YAC/RAC ability.

But I'm surprised to read that Kaaya was off on those throws, those should be easy pitch & catch throws, like "takin' candy from a baby". Wonder if throwing a wet ball had something to do with it?

j.w.

Lur-ker, respectfully, I think you did understand where my disagreement resided. You have now qualified your statement about fans who don't care as much as those who attend, excluding those who live far away. I understand your point that those who live close enough to attend that do show up have more passion than those who don't attend, and you understand my point that there are valid reasons why many can't attend.
And as for the play selection, If I am reading your second point correctly, we agree on the issue.

WWIN

Coley has gotten hurt two times from it so I see his point... I was going to tell James Coley the same thing lol! When it's not getting any yards and one of your best WR's got hurt last year from it... why run it? Lurker I think you're being too sensitive on this one... he's not saying that the coaches are intentionally trying to get player's hurt but more so that it's not working and player's are getting hurt from it. I still can't figure out why James Coley is so persistent to throw bubble screens to Coley???

But I do see other teams run it to perfection!

Ohio_Cane

Pete Ariz reporting Berrios should be out "a few weeks with a brace". MCL sprain, he says.

Good news considering how bad it looked. I thought it was torn

Da U N Houston

I actually like the isolation play, specially if the DB is giving up yards, size, poor tackler, and or speed. It's the same as a jump ball, but u are giving ur WR a better shot b/c he'll get the ball quicker. Now it's man on man, either make a play or get on someone's highlight film (i.e. Phillip Dorsett last year).

It also shows confidence in u WR one one one and it will cause the def to adjust if it's working (i.e. Lining the DB to press which means the safety has to help him, which opens up the field, or it will cause a LB to cheat which really opens up the field).


Just have to execute!

laquinton

Did I miss something ? Are we talking recent or ever ? Jimmy won a national title at Arkansas and won the title and 2 superbowls

Go Canes

We better stop running the ball, Duke broke his ankle doing it. And the deep ball, Scott broke his collarbone on one. Stop going up for the ball, Dorsett got injured doing it.

Right! People act is if they don't know our coaching staff is PERFECT! They call the right plays all the time EVERY time...without ever making a mistake! Every coach in America would have gave Duke the ball up the middle on fsu against a 9 man front...duh!

Lur-ker

Kaaya was off on that play. Sure it can work. But it didn't. Not a real criticism, just that they ran it like 3 times (maybe more) and it got nowhere. Not all plays work all the time or you'd score on every drive. Not a big deal.

As far as the real fans thing, jw, there are some things that should be taken for granted as common sense regarding attendance: illness, work, family issues, and of course, distance. Just plain old common sense. Assume I'm using common sense in those posts.

Go Canes

Football players are injured because they play football, not because of a play call.

These guys play literally thousands of snaps in practices, scrimmages and actual games. Injuries are an inevitable part of a violent game.

They can get hurt against a three man front, a screen pass, a kickoff, a deep ball or just making a cut without being touched.

Trying to equate an injury to a specific play call is ludicrous.

WWIN

^^^^^^ Lurker you right... but Go Canes acts as if they call bad plays and fans call em out then it's bashing or hating... which is not true! See Pete Carroll in this past Super Bowl... did he deserve criticism for that play call? He sure as hell did!

I think it's the play design... it hasn't worked for us in years... so why keep doing it? It got Stacey Coley hurt the first game last year... meaning... let me make sure I break this down... our WR's usually take a big hit after the catch... which is what happened at Louisville

Ohio_Cane

Even Golden would've run Marshawn!! Lol

WWIN

Trying to equate an injury to a specific play call is ludicrous.

Posted by: Go Canes | September 07, 2015 at 04:36 PM

It's ludicrous to think that certain play calls don't increase your chances for injuries. Running your smallest RB up the guy in short yardage situations is asking for trouble...especially against a stronger team!

Please list the positives of us running bubble screens that you've seen...and the last time it was successful?

Go Canes

Nah, they didn't run him cause he could have gotten hurt.

1mg of Epi

Isn't that receiver just the outlet anyway? I don't think it's the first look throw.

WWIN

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | September 07, 2015 at 04:42 PM

LMAO!

Lur-ker

I mean, come on now. Football is football. Coaches only call plays that they think will work. Sometimes they're right, sometimes they dial up the wrong play, and sometimes the QB checks off at the line.

To even imply that coaches are culpable for player injuries because of play selection is weak, unless you've got some sort of statistical proof. Just don't play or watch if that's the fear.

Again, a coach can be culpable for other aspects of player injuries, like not emphasizing/teaching heads up tackling, forcing players to play with injuries, etc, but not calling bubble screens. They call bubble screens because they think they will work. That's it. Whether it does work or not is irrelevant as far as the injury argument goes.
