Our O is predictable because the check downs are obvious. When the D gives us a certain look, we check to a play that everyone knows is coming. It's why we suck on third down, the D gives us a look and calls our plays for us. It's seriously barely above high school stuff.

Yeah. That's a big reason it's so scary. Little time to react to something that massive and strong.

What's the Boy Scouts motto? Always be prepared.

Sadly, our country was to worried about Mrs. Clinton and her hearing. I believe it was on 5-8 different channels last night as I surfed for something to watch.

I think it developed very very fast. Didn't give people much time to prepare. That's the scary part.

@ByTimReynolds: How many current FBS QBs have played at least 10 home games in their careers, with two TD passes in every one?

Answer: One. Brad Kaaya.

If Andrew taught me anything, it's to ALWAYS be prepared. Gasoline,cooking fuel,water, & ice were hard to come by. If I had one of those commercial ice machines, I would've made a KILLIN'!

DAMN! That sucka went from a 60 MPH storm, to a 200 MPH hurricane, in 30 HOURS!

Sorry, but your chance has passed. Sure, NOW you want us to make the Canespace Fourplay and Fiveplay? LOL

Those inexpensive sterno cookers were the bomb when we lost power for a couple of weeks (Wilma?)

Also extra charcoal if you have a regular grill, or extra gas tanks if you have a gas one. Matches. Batteries. Portable lights.

Just to add to your list CR, which was a good one. Amazing how much we take fresh clean water for granted

j.w.

You're either a self- motivated person or you're not. A coach can't ever motivate an unmotivated person if they don't have it in them. And what I seem to be seeing in Colin is complacency. Losing your mojo is on you, not the coach. The team is way worse without Harbaugh, but Kapernick sucking is on him. Zero leadership.

Posted by: Lurker | October 22, 2015 at 10:52 PM

Not really. the coach sets the tone and either inspires or doesn't inspire athletes to get things done. If a coawch is gettign through to most athletes, then its on the ones who aren't working. But if the coach is not getting through, if the team looks dull and disinterested in general, that's on the coach.

Are they canceling any football games Saturday or Sunday in Texas???

Players should be self motivated but Coaches should Inspire his team in some sort of way. Look no further then the Dolphins under Campbell

It's been my experience that a person that's internally unmotivated doesn't respond. Coaches can coach people that they can get through to. Which isn't everybody. That's why coaches get rid of players or sit their asses down. In business, those are the people you fire. They constantly bitch and don't get anything done, and take up too much of your time.

My prediction:

Clemson 41 Miami 23

31-28 Canes.

D’Onofrio said. “Be ready for your moment. You make plays by being prepared. You don’t make plays because you’re a so-called playmaker.”

Santana Moss "Big time players make big time plays in big time games"

In the end it is this staff's approach to football that will lead to their demise. They are not Miami coaches.

USAFCane

You know what bothers me is ND being so powerful that they benefit from being full ACC member in college basketball's premier conference but does not have to be a full time football members.

Worst of all, even their part time membership helps the weak ACC in football.

Oh well.

Go Canes

We're 13-25 run on 3rd down over our last few games.

IMO the biggest reason, not the only one certainly, for our pathetic conversion rate has been our continual inability to avoid 3rd and long because of penalty.

If we can manage down and distance tomorrow we'll be there at the end with a shot to win It.

He was just as famous when he was balling. Barring some personal issues we don't know about, the only thing that changed is the coaching. Coaching is a huge part of football.

Look at what the Dolphins did w a new coach and 2 weeks.

CaneRock

Depends on the message and who's delivering it. "Don't rise to the occasion" & "trust your training" doesn't get through to ANYBODY.

Besides, EVERY player is DIFFERENT, their's no one size fits all approach.

External motivation MATTERS, some guys are good at it, some aren't.

And its been mine, as a coach and as the father of athletes (as well as the uncle of others), that a poor coach is responsible for team-wide lethargy, or lack of attention to detail, or inconsistent effort. Coaches, business management, etc. can't make people pay attention. But there are very few people in any occupation or sport who won't respond to anyone. I coached 31 girls in 3 seasons this year, only 3 (occasionally) wouldn't respond to anyone when they weren't getting their way.
Kap isn't playing well for a number of reasons. Defenses have figured out his strengths and his team isn't even close to the same unit he had two years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if he is cut in June, not because he isn't working but simply because he isn't that good. But if he were the only problem on the team, the Niners would sit him and start Gabbert.

So Golden could lose to his old team on the way out the door, man that would hurt.

I'm pretty sure he'd end up w some mysterious ailment right before game time. Streptovaginosis or something.

It's looks like the hurricane will be a low by the time it reaches Texas, lots of mountains to cross first

CaneRock

With the exception of GT & UVA, you can throw the 40 part of that 40/20 rule out the window...ain't happenin'. The last part of the season's gonna come down to DEFENSE...YIKES!

Lurker

That's great news. There are hundreds of miles to cross before it reaches Texas, so it would make sense it's not a hurricane when it gets there. Land and mountains are definitely your best friend with hurricanes. Still will probably be a super nasty low-storm though I'll bet

Go Canes

@mattyports: Al Golden can do Saturday what Butch Davis did in 1998, but that seems like more fantasy than fate.

Been said on here countless times, winning cures everything.

Win this game and we're likely in the Top 25 with our destiny for the season and in recruiting in our own hands.

Posted by: Go Canes | October 23, 2015 at 06:39 AM

The problem is that we've been saying basically the same thing week after week, year after year. Every game against a decent opponent we say is his last chance. FSU was a supposed must win. He's just not capable. Some would say "well, we'll find out soon enough.", but the reality is we've already found out. Over and over.

All we've been doing is moving the goalpost.

Lurker

The goalpost hasn't changed in my view. Win the Coastal, at the very least. If they want guaranteed safety, win the ACC. Also, don't dare lose the bowl game.

It will not be the wind but the rain that will affect Texas. Just ask Stevie Ray Vaughn and his BFF BB King:

That's reasonable. And if he did all that I assume he changed his philosophy, which he needs to do. The problem comes in when he falls short of that and the powers that be rationalize some reason to keep him.

USAFCane

expecting a lot of rain in San Antonio. Heard 10 inches perhaps more in Houston.
