Good read

Mark from Atlanta

1 or 21...don't care. ..just Win baby, for the love of God, just win!
God bless you and Go Canes!

Canes practicing in Dolphins indoor bubble today

AeroCane

Only way we don't win by 10 or more is if richt lays an egg like last year!
I stick by my original prediction:
27-13 canes with 6 sacks

Go Canes!

Imo the only way we lose is if we turn the ball over, especially in the second half.

FSU's problems are on offense, that D is going to be tough all day on Saturday.

Hmmmm...21 points you say? OK.

Raize, I like you may be suffering from some Golden era stuff. According to the Golden formula we are primed to lose. We are undefeated, they lost their starting QB and have a back up, have lost two games...which means we surely won't win!!

But I think it changes this year. I'm going to wipe the rest of the Golden stink off of me and pick my Canes to end the skid


Go Canes!

UMike, entirely. We've been conditioned to expect failure.

AeroCane

Ok
I'm in north Florida and I hate to say it but most of my friends are huge Nole fans - they are actually saying 'it shouldn't be tough - it's Miami and they haven't played anybody' and 'richt can't win a big game'

We have to crush these effers!

No Laterals Needed

Yes, that's true! But it would have been fun, if, toward the end of the game, we ran a multi-lateral play (and we scored), if only to reinforce our image as the most brazane college football program in the country.

An average of two to three 'big' wins over ranked or rival teams regardless of rank a year before he got to UM and had gold-hen-girl-loser-for-life-against-the-primary-rival-dude ruin the streak in the regular season. I'd say he's overdue if anything for a breakthrough ahead of schedule then. He's also winning games at UM at a higher clip percentage-wise right now than he did for his entire career in the SEC, for what it's worth.

AeroCane

Very impressive - thx ogv

AfriCane

U know the only reason I’m leaking my chops for this game? Remember how we battered & abused Francois last year? This year, we r facing a worse FSU O-line and a QB that’s skinnier than Jacory Harris and that’s a freshman and not particularly fast on his feet.
Can’t wait!

AfriCane

Licking, not leaking!!!!

Never leak your chops.

See you boys on the sideline Saturday afternoon.

Go Canes!

Great info.

Take care of the ball and we win.

thirstybuzzardcane

FSU QB will get hit, hit some more, and then hit some more again. We are going to be blitzing from all angles. This guy will be a deer in the headlights! We just have to be careful of that long pass.

thirstybuzzardcane

Good sign!!!!

34-13 = 21

Just sayin...

Terrance Sullivan

Miami 20
FSU. 19

Ohio_Cane

Sully, I would prefer it not be that close. Let's go with

Miami - 31
FSU - 17

TheeMackJones

Miami, Florida 20 FSU 13

Richt's relative CONSERVATIVE play calling, and Walton not being ' 100% ' percent should keep this rivalry game closer than it should be. dUh. Also, mighty FSU still has some mean and nasty athletes on defense. hUh.

The bottom line: On PAPER Miami should win this conference game by at least ' 20 points, ' or more. But Good Ol' Boy Jimbo is still FSU's sideline chief.

SMH... Yet FSU still managed to narrowly defeat Miami in their ' crib. ' dUh.

40-10, good guys.

Go Canes!

31-20 Canes

UMike

This is a huge opportunity to swing recruiting our way. If we can go to Talley and get a good with, giving them at least their 3rd loss in front of recruits, it will go a long way in recruiting Florida.

34-10 Canes!

Glad to see the coaches and the school are not just going to roll over in this investigation. As they say in old movies, "They got nuttin!" This is a "he said, he said" story, and none of the UM staff turns up on any of the wiretaps.

With the firm denials of the UM staff, the AAU coach, and the amily of the recruit, the whole story hinges on a crooked money-man and the Adidas rep. I don't care what UM did or didn't do, play this hard and close to the vest and make the FBI PROVE their case beyond a reasonable doubt. There is no reason that UM should not contend for, nor excuse themselves from a run at the ACC Title and another shot at a Sweet 16 birth in March!!

Go 'canes!!

Agreed. Great info OGV! CMR is the best HC that UM has had since Butch in his heyday. CMR is overdue for an historic run this season!

OGV getting some mad praise?

Who woulda thunk it? LOL

Sounds good. I hope you are as accurate about FSU on Saturday as you were last week about Duke.

BigWindyCane1

I am rolling with Soup on my prediction -- Canes win 34-13!

Canes D gives a top 10 defensive performance, with FSU getting a meaningless score at the end of the game to get 13, with the outcome fully settled by the beginning of the fourth quarter. Sheriffs will get some reps, and even bend the knee at the end to kill the clock.

Seven straight losses is hard to forget, but a 21 point win will make me feel a whole lot better

Go Canes!

There's a tropical thing and it looks like the weather is going to suck.

Come on!!!!

JVilleCane

The Semihoes are 14-8 the last 22 games (Yea I know you're surprised!! We will spank their tush by 24 Saturday. Mark will have the game in the bag and throw a bum to rub it in.

Hell he might throw a bum too.

We need Walton to do his best Sean Taylor.

58 Straight

His Royal Dudeness...U know that is the funny thing about this team. We don't even know who the leaders are? Who is Ed Reed, Joaquin Gonzalez, Sean Taylor, Ray Lewis, Michael Irvin, Clinton Portis, Alonzo Highsmith, Cortez Kennedy???

Who IS that guy? I guess we find out on Saturday!

If it rains, its definitely not going to help up!

I think Rosier is a leader. Not on par with the aforementioned but he's got leadership qualities. I think most of the types of leaders we're looking for have yet to reveal themselves, but they're there. The cream will rise to the top!! It took 12 years to crash the bus, it's gonna take 1-2 more years before the field is littered with the type of talent you described. UM can compete now at a high level, but the depth just isn't there yet.

Go 'canes!!

UM has a better O line, better running game, and equal or better D line IMO. It would seem to me that UM would be favored on a "muddy track".

Sarasota 'cane

I forgot to add a better QB as well. We got this!!

Go 'canes!!
