BLACKSBURG, Va.

It’s not even Halloween yet and the University of Miami football team is fighting for its life.

Deep into the mish-mash of what is known as the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Hurricanes will attempt to stay relevant when they meet Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. Thursday.

With the autumn beauty of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and a possible sellout at Lane Stadium making an already thunderous venue even more imposing, this could be fun.

“When one team is getting cheered for, it gives them juice,” UM coach Mark Richt said. “When one team is getting cheered against, it pumps them up, too.

“There will definitely be a lot of emotion going into this thing.”

Two weeks ago, the Hurricanes (4-2, 1-2 ACC) were ranked 10th in the nation in both major polls, ahead of in-state powers Florida State and Florida.

Now, losers of their past two games at home against the Seminoles and North Carolina, they are teetering between a downward spiral and uplifting rebound. A victory would make Miami a more significant player when it goes into South Bend, Indiana, 10 days later to face Notre Dame.

The Hokies (4-2, 2-1) are coming off an especially stinging loss at Syracuse (they were a 22-point favorite), and though they have the same overall record as Miami, their extra Coastal victory makes it even tougher for the Canes. North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Virginia also only have one league loss, with Georgia Tech and Duke’s three ACC losses pretty much eliminating them from contention.

“It’s like I told them,” Richt said after the loss to UNC, “if you look at the scores across the league, everybody is battling every day. You don’t know for sure what can happen. You want to put yourself in position just in case something breaks your way, because it can come around.

“You just have to keep fighting.”

Like Richt, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente is in his first season with his program. But Fuente is following heralded coach Frank Beamer, who was with the Hokies for nearly three decades but sadly wore out his welcome among much of the fan base.

Fuente runs an up-tempo offense led by quarterback Jerod Evans, who has completed 96 of 153 passes for 1,346 yards and 17 touchdowns (two interceptions) and leads the ACC in pass efficiency.

Go Canes!

No Redwine tonight. Didn't even travel to Blacksburg.

Id guess its a suspension, not injury related but it's not confirmed anywhere

UMike

With their up tempo ad us being so depleted, might be trouble. Scary to think we might need the O to carry us tonight.

BLACKSBURG, Va. — The Hurricanes will be missing another defensive player for their game at Virginia Tech.

A source told The Post that starting cornerback Sheldrick Redwine, a sophomore who has started the last five games opposite senior Corn Elder, did not make the trip and thus will not play Thursday (7 p.m., ESPN).

A UM spokesperson did not offer comment.

Redwine, who has 16 tackles and two pass break-ups in his first year as a starter, was not listed on UM’s injury report, which was released Tuesday.

Those who were listed as out: starting defensive end Demetrius Jackson, rotational defensive tackle Gerald Willis and reserve defensive end Scott Patchan, all of whom have knee injuries. UM said they have “lower extremity” injuries.

Another player, starting defensive end Chad Thomas, was listed as “questionable.” UM said Thomas, the team’s leader in tackles for loss (8.0; 3.0 sacks), has an “upper extremity” injury. Thomas, who played with a broken hand last week against North Carolina, sustained a different injury in that game. Thomas did not practice Tuesday, but made the trip to Blacksburg.

I have no doubt we will win tonight. Why?? Because it is my birthday today and a victory is what I am asking for (blowing out make-believe candles as I make this wish)....

Go Canes!

Now there's a reason if there's ever been one!

How old are you today?

UMike

Well...to add to that... I got engaged last night so maybe they will win!!!


Happy birthday Raize, hope you have a great one.

Go Canes!

Damn there's a lot of great stuff happening on the Space today!

Congrats UMike, from everything I can gather from the outside looking in you're both people with an overwhelming desire to do good and help others.

With that in common, the rest will be cake.


And Raize, well, you're just getting old buddy.

Mark from Atlanta

Power I, play action to TEs....This game is on offense shoulders and specifically OL...
SHOW SOME SACK.
God bless you and Go Canes!

ColaCane

D, KEEP doin what cher doin, and O, ahhhh yes, the O, well for all that is GOOD and DECENT on this PLANET, PLEASE use our GIANT TE's and DRAWS to take pressure off Kaya. It boggles the mind WHY we haven't used our TE's more, and get back to power running game in other areas besides UP THE GUT!!! I BEG of thee!!!

UMike

Ummmmm, my 3rd! Had a really really short mistake of a marriage when I was young. Then had a decently long marriage the second go round. Either way this is my final. Never thought I would again after the last, but if there is any woman on this earth that could deal with me forever its her haha

CaneRock

Happy Birthday RaizeCane!

Congragulations UMike! But 3rd time dawg??? UMike must be addicted to divorce LOL.

ColaCane

3rd time's a charm!!

UMike

haha.. I knew i was gonna get some shyt on it being number 3! Man shyt happens... the first one was a dam fluke lol... the second was good while it lasted, I have an awesome step-son (ex step-son?) that was actually with me at the GT game, but when it came down to it my kids werent happy and they are my priority so it had to end. I was single for a while man before I just happened upon this one. Night and day different from the last.

Go Canes!

Damn! Three??

UMike is a playaaaa...

CaneRock

LOL...just bustin' ya' chops UMike.

I'm all for marriage, but sometimes I think it's overrated. Off the top of my head, I've been to 6 weddings these last few years, and 5 of em' ended up in divorce...crazy.

UMike

CR, I agree. Its typically just a piece of paper. We also have another motive...we may be in a position to adopt in the very near future. Now that is not the sole reason for this, but is certainly part of the timing.

Ohio_Cane

Happy Birthday Raize!


Congrats UMike!!

Ohio_Cane

When ever I see Keoki make an entry, I think of the time I met him when Miami was playing the gators in gainsville a few years back, he had a rickety bus/RV full of booze and food. Keoki was the first member of canespace that I met in person.....good times

Game Day Byotches!!

Go 'canes!!

Happy birthday again buddy.

Go Canes!

And in example infinity of what a joke the NCAA is, Louisville gets caught RED HANDED hiring hookers and gets virtually no punishment while we get slaughtered by them for not doing it, just accused of it by a convicted felon.

Gin & Tonic

As injuries add, up the lack of depth on this team will continue to be exposed. Hoping for the best, but realistically this is at least a 2 year re-build.

He has 2 kids, right? Or just 1. Either way, I'm sure struggling family would have something to do with it if that's his choice, because there's no way he gets drafted.

Both Susan and Porter reporting Thomas is home.

Joe Jackson, Path Bethal - step on up!

Go Canes!

Not to mention the starting DE, LB and key reserve LB who got booted!

Yippee!!!

Porter:Miami is missing both starting DEs, a starting CB, a key reserve DT, a reserve DE, and starts 3 true freshmen at LB.
