Good read

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.

UMike

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

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!

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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".

I am going to get some "poo poo's for this but I think FSU wins by a FG this weekend.
Miami has beaten BC and Toledo which are OK and Duke who hasn't beaten anyone that was good.....at least my betting side thinks so.

FSU has lost to Bama and NC State - both which are pretty good. I would not be surprised one bit of FSU made in 8 straight..... let the "boo hissing" begin.

GOING TO HAVE TO AGREE WITH THIS, I AM NOT SOLD ON OUR TEAM YET. BEAT FSU THEN WE CAN TALK

Posted by: 58 Straight | October 03, 2017 at 11:47 PM

Weather reports continue to show heavy rain and 20 mph winds starting Saturday evening so we could be in a game that has deteriorating conditions as it progresses.

Understand leadership is important but imo it's going to come down to which unit controls the LOS and who doesn't turn the ball over.

If it does have to come down to "a guy" imo it has to be Walton doing for us what Cook did for them for the last three years.

Miami has lost 7 years in a row.
Miami's last victory in the series was on 09/07/2009.
That will be 2,952 days ago when the game starts.
This game will be a toss up. It has been the past three years.

UMike

My thinking is Diaz is for real and their OL is not so good. Also, the main reason I believe we will will ... They don't have Cane killer Cool anymore. He alone beat us 2 of the last 3 years

thirstybuzzardcane

At least our QB can run if its raining which is a advantage. Now if we had Kaaya we would be in trouble.

30Cinco, couple that with the ability to immediately play and you have a scenario where a Alabama can form unofficial affiliations with smaller 1A schools like UAB and use them for recruiting surplus until the time is necessary to "call them up". Or try to freely poach the underrecruited emerging talent at places like Miami.

It's good for the players, but could create less parity in CFB

Sarasota 'cane

All kidding aside they should probably move the game to Friday night. There's no telling what the storm will do over the warm Gulf waters, plus the community should be in storm prep/evacuation mode on Saturday IMO.

Sarasota 'cane

The 7:00pm game on Friday is Memphis vs UCONN so no threat of disrupting a big game. Play it at 8pm Friday on ABC and call it a day. If we're gonna change the time/date we gotta do it earlier rather than later so the team has time to prepare for the triple option that GT is gonna hit us with the following week.

It takes time to learn that gimmicky offense and GT is in that phase of their 3-4 year cycle where they're hitting on all cylinders. I'm sure we'll know sooner than later about a Friday night kick or a noon kick on Saturday.

After all these years you're finally starting to get better at this blobbing thing, Wes.

On a neutral field that's exactly what I'd predict too, but they might have as much as a five point advantage due to the home crowd so maybe 30-21? That would stretch the single digit margin of victory streak to four in a row while still not being a one score 'close' game, so I can see it. Either way, first team to 30 is winning this, felonious sex-assault university probably can't win it again unless they turn it to a first to 20 game anyway.

We're all just spit balling. I prefer to leave it at 3:30pm, but with the storm projected to make landfall at 8-9am Sunday that seems unlikely. Noon would be the next best time, but even that seems like too much for a game of this magnitude, logistics, and whatnot.

Sarasota 'cane

I wouldn't care if it was at 10-11am either. We're gonna win so I'm concerned with the time we break the chief's spear and BBQ the horse. Just kick the ball this week!!

Or...move the game to Hardrock!! I would drive down last minute from Atlanta for that!!!

Sarasota 'cane

It's gotta be Friday if it kicks in Tallahassee. Tropical storm force winds will arrive during the day on Saturday and they cannot have the fans driving around in that mess after the game. On top of that it looks like Tallahassee is on the wrong side of the storm right now so they will get some major damage when it comes ashore making a game on Monday impossible.
I would hope that they move the game to Saturday to a neutral site or to the Hardrock, but just like the UM players and coaches after Irma they don't want to be on the road while their family, friends, and stuff are back home in the line of fire. That's what leads me to believe they will kick this thing on Friday night in Tallahassee.

thirstybuzzardcane

Tropical storm winds will reach Tallahassee during the day on Saturday. You can kiss Saturday goodbye. They'll do it Friday I bet
