YES!!!!!! Goodnight all!

Sarasota 'cane

Great post Soup!

Mountain Cane

Odds are out for next week and Canes are 4 1/2 point favorites, which sounds about right. Tiny 24k stadium and hostile crowd. App St has 17 returning starters from a good season last year and got off to a solid start versus Tennessee.

D was very effective against FAU. Keep it up and stay healthy.

Running game great. Walton really blossoming.

Kaaya not very sharp early, but line did not produce a very clean pocket. You don't always get one, but FAU pushed our O line back into Kayaa. One of his picks was tipped from behind by a looping rusher. The other was just a dumb decision by Kayaa.

Richt wisely changed the passing focus to shorter and to the side, using our athletic guys.

Kick coverage team needs work. If can't drop it at the goalline and keep them inside their 25, just kick the thing lower and thru the end zone.

Field goal team could use some practice.

Berrios instills a lot of confidence on punts and has shown good judgement on bouncing balls.

We need to up our game next week. I live nearby and this is the biggest sporting event in Boone, probably forever.

Mountain Cane...excellent post. Can we get some MORE often?

Oh so when Golden was here we were winning CONVINCINGLY but now we have Richt we're winning UNCONVINCINGLY??? Lol

Great analysis Soup... that's exactly how I saw it!

WWIN..if we had 22 Corn Elders we would win EVERY game convincingly!

Top 10 again.

UMike

I still haven't figured out who I want to blame for the weak offensive performance, but here are some options... what do y'all think?

1) Kaaya simply isnt as good as we think

2) The OL played horrible, giving him no time

3) A new system/scheme

4) CMR hasnt called plays in a decade

5) Other

The respect is inching up for the Miami Hurricanes.

After defeating FAU 38-10 Saturday night at Hard Rock Stadium, the University of Miami entered the Amway Coaches’ Poll as the nation’s No. 25 college football team.

Last week, the Canes (2-0) were the first team outside of that poll, in essence, the team with the most points at what would be considered No. 26.

On Sunday afternoon, the AP Poll kept the Hurricanes at No. 25, as the Florida Gators (2-0), bumped by the Canes to No. 26 last week, are now No. 23 in the AP after beating Kentucky 45-7.

FSU (2-0) moved up one spot in the AP to No. 2 after beating Charleston Southern 52-8.

The coaches also moved up FSU to No. 2 and have the Gators at No. 23.

Miami travels to Boone, N.C., for a noon showdown Saturday against Appalachian State, which is 1-1 after defeating Old Dominion 31-7 Saturday. The Mountaineers lost their opener in overtime at No. 9 Tennessee after missing an extra point earlier in the game that would have kept them from going into overtime.

The Hurricanes (2-0) ended with 470 yards and another dominant defensive showing by holding the Owls (1-1) to 214 yards — 47 of them rushing after holding FAMU to only 22 yards rushing last week.

Seven Canes — linebacker Michael Pinckney, nickel back Jaquan Johnson, safety Rayshawn Jenkins, defensive ends Chad Thomas and Joe Jackson, and tackles R.J. McIntosh and Gerald Willis (in his UM debut) — combined for seven sacks. There were 13 UM tackles for loss. Last year they had 66 total all season.

“Challenged our guys before the game to walk in the stadium as if they were in total control of the outcome,” said Diaz. “I was really proud of the way they played. I thought from start to finish, with a few exceptions, we played as if we were always under control, even if adversity was striking us.”

Added Diaz: “The first tenant of our defense is stop the run. For the first two games our run defense has been outstanding.”

Imo there's not much flow to the offense and I think the more a QB gets in rhythm the better he plays. We've mixed it up some on first down but it's kind of been by the book offense with not a lot of pass, pass, pass series.

He definitely hasn't been sharp but it's still early and it's hard to question the overall results. We've have won our games by a combined 108-13.

Next Saturday's going to be very,very interesting.

UMike

Go, that score sounds great, but its also deceptive. Im in love with the defense, but little worried about the O. Hopefully it was a one game thing, early on in a new scheme and nothing more.

App State's D is legit and will be a real test. Its is also the big test for all those freshmen since it will be a crazy road atmosphere.

UMike

And honestly I shouldnt be worried, we have talent there and I should trust CMR. Hopefully he is just a little rusty. For those that know offensive stuff more than me, do you think he has been keeping it very vanilla?

raizecane

went to bed last night with the #2 post....woke up this morning....nada. I must be in a time warp.

Go Canes!

CMR just addressed Kaaya on WQAM. He said it's been a combination of drop passes, poor protection and Kaaya missing some open throws.

The interesting part is him saying they could've easily worked their way through any issues with a pass, pass, pass mentality but there was no need to because the running game has been working so well.

True that.

Golden's TE had 45 yards / 1 TD and a win yesterday. He found his calling as a position coach.

Where do I request a refund for the stadium roof install? That sucka was leaking all over the place when that rain hit.

UMike

30...we were told it was complete, but I read today the canopy/roof isnt complete yet lol

I can confirm that report, it is def not complete.

Go Canes!

It can rain on me all it wants. It sure as hell beats heading straight to the Jakson burn unit to treat the 3rd degree burning flesh wounds I'd get anytime I touched my seat any metal at every noon game.

Lur-ker

There's a difference between complete and ready for occupancy.

They said it was ready. They never said it was complete. They'll still be working on it even after the season. It will be complete by next season

UMike

Not sure I ever remember us blocking a punt 2 games in a row

raizecane

So I am confused....the roof is up but not functional against the rain. Is that correct??

My FAVORITE answer to ANY question:

E. ALL OF THE ABOVE.

58 Straight

UMike...yeah you can get a C/O (Certificate of Occupancy) once all required building and safety codes have been met. Does not include all finishing touches or cosmetic issues being addressed. Where I was on the South sideline there were no issues with the roof being water tight. The roof leak was in the East end zone from what I could see. The people scurried like ants!

58 Straight

I will tell you this, I like the way FAU schemes and coaches offense and defense. If they get some more and better SoFl talent watch out.

Really when you think about it USF and UCF could also get much better over the next few years. Any success they have wil improve their recruiting in the Tampa (USF) and Orlando (UCF) areas. Lots and lots of talent there to.

UMike

58.... I understand, just wanted to bust Lurkers chops a lil this morning.

BTW, TSully needs some sort of Canespace award or something, the guy saved me over $200 on the GT game!!! His love for the Canes goes above anyone else Ive ever known outside of my grandma. On top of that, he will go out of his way for you to help. Glad to call him a friend and cant wait to hang again in a few weeks.

Like I've said a few times recently, we just have to get those few right ones... not all of them. Plenty of talent here, we just cant miss on the right ones all the time. 1-3 Less misses over 2-3 cycles and we have elite talent imo

Go Canes!

Very good stuff from Porter on CMR and Kaaya.

Did we have a lot of dropped balls? I missed a few mins of the game, but dont remember any clear drops.

1. He has a room full of Canespace trophies, too many to count, no shelf space left. I think he has won every single award we have to offer. And the story of how we randomly met is one for the ages.

2. Obviously I did not know your Grandma but I think TSully could give her a run for her money. True story, we were loading the car at the hotel for the tailgate and we were putting the tent into the car and Sully scratched his hand pretty badly on the car trunk. There was no red blood but some sort of orange and green stuff that oozed out. We just looked at each other and smiled. No words were said.

3. Hangin with TSully is like being with Elvis. The man is a ROCK star and legend. On top of that he will go WAY outta his way to help you. Trust me, you could not be in better company.

UMike...over the last 2 weeks I would say about 5-6 drops combined, 2 would have been for BIG gains. But that is just a small part of what is wrong. Granted it is a PART, but not the main issue. In the FAU game Kaaya was simply off. WRs were diving for the ball consistently and it was still mostly well out of reach. Some balls glanced off their finger tips but the balls were simply un-catchable.

Unless of course you are GoCanes or Lurker. They would have caught those balls because King Kaaya is the best QB in the Country. Kaaya's agent OhioCane is worried I can tell you that!

UMike

lol... I just didnt remember any obvious drops. Seemed like Kaaya tried to guide a couple balls rather then just throw.

Go Canes!

Richards and Njoku had about a hundred yards worth of drops the last two games. There have been 3-4 more that should have been caught that weren't.

58 Straight

And right on cue...

UMike

Go... now that you said that I remember a Richards drop.

58 Straight

They is a major difference between balls caught, passes that SHOULD have been caught (hit the WR right in the hands and in stride), passes that COULD have been caught (great catch or miracle grab on balls thrown way behind the WR or way too low/high) and passes that are simply un-catchable (no friggin chance anybody catches the ball).

And of course Kaaya has some of each of these recently. The problem is the % went UP in the FAU game not down. As our friend OGV loves to say (and he is right) the greatest improvement usually comes between games 1 and 2. So where are THINGS going wrong with Kaaya? See answer to your previous question:

E. ALL OF THE ABOVE.

58 Straight

Let me tell U them boys at Appy State don't care about The U on the helmets. They are going for broke and for blood against your Miami Hurricanes. U can bet on that.

Kaaya and the boys better be READY!

Go Canes!

Agree 100%.

CMR too.

This is his first chance to show everyone things are changing here for good. Win this one in solid fashion, take care of business against a bad GT game and we'll be coming home to face FSU ranked and ready to get to the meat of our schedule in great shape!

Maybe FAU have a real competitive team since they only have 5 out-of-state players. Almost the entire roster is from Florida.

Go Canes!

Yeah, that's what I said.

I could care less if he's the best or worst QB in the country as long as we win and we have by a combined score of 108-13.

Having a dialogue about what's going on is what this blogs about right?

Or is it to placate an obviously psychotic sociopath?

If you were a Clemson fan today you'd probably be calling Watson overrated after he struggled for the second straight week against Troy of all teams.
