Also, to put things in perspective, a lot of little teams are playing really well. FSU, who also had a lay-off. Be lucky we didn’t have the same result they did.

AfriCane

I think u r all hyper ventilating. The team was laid off for a while. Conditioning was not the same. We all agreed we were playing one of the best offenses led by one of the best QBs in the nation.
Don’t get your knickers in a wad yet.

He was guessing right most of the year on the stunts during conference play last season but now his tendencies are charted so he's going to have to start disguising everything to force reads to go haywire reading where the call really is designed to swarm to versus what they see pre-snap with their lying eyes. Or he could just roll the dice and reverse the tendencies if he thinks that Cutcliffe or Roper want to attempt to get cute with the over-matched OL protecting play calling.

There IT is right there.

Go Canes!

Yesterday's QB was a lot more mobile than Duke's imo.

Looked like a poor man's Trubinsky.

Honestly, without all the drops, that could have been a one score game in the fourth. And that kid was the reason why.

trianglecane

Dukes qb was 9 of 23 against UNC. He is not what Miami faced this week. But, I will be at the game Friday, so I will see first hand.

thirstybuzzardcane

What if Thomas was supposed to go out instead of in tho?

Posted by: WWIN | September 24, 2017 at 02:38 PM

He wasn't. You know why? Because I heard Malik on the post game after the game.....lol. Malik said he just over threw the ball and it was on him.

The Duke QB is just ass good or better then Toledo's imo

I can't go with the we don't have talent in the secondary when coaches and insiders have bragged on Delaney and Dean being nfl draft picks plus with Malik Young getting a pick in practice everyday, Bandy being the next honey badger, and Mike Jackson being the most improved player on defense.

I'm setting my eyes on the coaching staff!

SinisterCane

CIS:
Coach Diaz- In case you didnt know we ran the same linebackers on WR's last year I was always amazed that more teams didnt abuse it like Toldeo did. I mean its ok if you got your best linebackers on the field. but our linebackers are not even guarding the WR its so easy to do a play action pass to the slot WR. He had too many plays where the LB was in no mans land. He brought in more DB's some times in the 2nd half but not enough. I have no idea wtf he is doing at times D-

Rosier- Like I said the boy is a gamer he missed Berrios a few times in the middle and threw that int but other then those 4-5 throws he was on point and smart with all his decisions 75% completion percentage! I dont recall Kaaya ever being as accurate as him, did yall see thos ejukes in the open field!!!! Didnt know he had that in him.. Have a feeling we are gonna run way more RPO in the near future, sounds good to me B+

Walton- Dam that boy looked better then anytime I have seen him..He was jump cutting out ther like Leveon Bell Yea its Toledo but **** Duke use to do the same thing against the scrubs. Hoping this carries on to our ACC foes. Would of gotten an A+ if not for getting caught at the 2 yard line. A-

Homer- Explosive doesnt have the moves behind the line of scrimmage tho. Im nitpicking but he Tries to run over people sometimes when he 'd do better off making them miss. Hes powerful but hes only 190 -195..wont last long running like that as a starter at that weight..Nice change of pace back had a nice game. B

Choc- No way in hell he should have been tripped up on that run.. The old Choc scores on that he aint the same mane. Gimme Burns instead C-

KC Mcdermott- Got abused a few times..He is so up and down Mane... Im worried abour him against FSU. C

Harley- Made one good play and one horrible drop..not a great blocker down field with better blocking berrios would have had two more tds but **** hes only 160 pounds hard to be mad at him for that ..but in all honesty. Hes a true freshman he shouldnt be playing this much. C

Berrios- Had a nice game looks fast. Glad to see him step up but in all honesty when is Ricahrds coming back? We cant have him as our leading #1 WR against th e big boys A

Thomas- i think the game is too fast for him right now hopefully it slows down I'll give him an I for incomplete because I like him

herndon- bout time we made him part of the game plan I know its only the 2nd game he blocked pretty well too.. A

Irving the 2nd- Nice hands but he is so weak at teh point of attack (Weight Room) C+

RJ Mcintosh- Boy was a problem up front all night most disruptive force- A

Chad Thomas- a lot of pressures played good but is still something is stopping from being an all ACC type player and i cant put my finger on it B

Garvin- limited snaps but he got mad pressure and hits on the QB I expect him to get more PT - A

joe Jackson- Played Well on the cusp of destroying a few plays had some nice QB hits B

Mike SMith- Get him the **** oout of our rotation. missed severaltackles- D-

Charles Perry- Hard to grade him Coach had him so out of position but he goes 100 I aint mad at him C

Shaq Quaterman- Boy is so much faster then last year..he was everywhere tonight chasing down passes out to the flat. Missed 1 tackle but played great A-

#3- I refuse to mention his name. He will be the death of us can you at least tackle the ****ers after you get burnt got dammit mane F

Redwine- Man he played a nice game... made a nice pass break up and had the FR.. A

M. Jackson- I mean hes not a 5 star and you can tell but he was an inch away from making some plays. not the worst but hes not a Miami Caliber DB C-

Bandy- Minmal PT but Definition of what a nickel CB should be he appears to have the quickest feet of all our CB's I hope he isnt hurt too serious B

J. Johnson- Like we all have said we are seeing his lack of speed playing deeper in the backfield I think we need to move him closer to the line of scrimmage C

M. young- Played well got beat a few times, but i think he has a future B-

Norton- Did he even play today? D

TruCane81

Meant to say eek out 100 yards

TruCane81

Walton looks a lot faster to me also

Posted by: UMike | September 24, 2017 at 11:48 AM

If Mark can eek out 1st down against fsu, he will run for 1700+ yards and 15+touchdowns.

If we can get the mental mistakes corrected 8n pass defense AND continue to make Herndon the focal point of the passing game, we will have a top 20 offense and win the coastal going away.

DO NOT be surprised to see Mark in New York in December if we win 11 games.

TonyCane

UMike, you are spot on. If the Canes defense doesn't drastically improve by Friday, the Duke game could be a loss. Duke is clicking on offense and defense. The Canes have not played up to pre-season expectations or standards on defense.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | September 24, 2017 at 03:40 PM

I have no worries whatsoever about Duke. Miami's coaching is just as good as Duke's, and that's the only advantage that Duke has. Our talent level is far better than the Blue Devils, and we will expose them this week.

VA Cane

The front 7 have to get off blocks...USE the hands...get pressure on the center QB slot...up the gut against the 2 people that touch it every play...lots of pressure in the backfield...and make solid tackles. More pressure less time to throw. We have got to get better in the secondary....got to cover people. It is the achilles heel....the D has got to step up really big. I thought the O would be an issue...not so much!!!!

Herbieibis

Canes Fans don't sweat the defense. We all knew the secondary was going to be a little suspect, with the losses from last year. Not a lot of depth of talent yet at the position, so it is what it is. They just got off a 9-10 day lay off and practiced 4 or 5 days and played against a pretty good QB. Diaz will have to make some adjustments to hide our inexperience and lack of top level talent in the secondary. Most teams use a quick passing game, in this day and time so he'll have to dial up something different. Manny has this!

UMike

The Duke QB is just ass good or better then Toledo's imo

BigWindyCane1

Looks like Miami is opening as a -5.5 favorite at Duke on Friday. If the Canes are going to finally win the Coastal outright this season, this Duke game is a critical because Duke is undefeated, Duke is confident, and it might be the closest point spread the Canes might see in Coastal Division game this season.

The defense must play a lot better. I will now hold off on my disappointment and criticism of the defense, and I will have to trust that the coaches will get things corrected and field an inspired and hungry defense

It's not going to matter either way though as long as Mark Walton's high ankle can be numbed enough to cut on by Friday with one less day of rest because Duke is a basketball school. And the gold-hen girl loser for life against the primary rival dude isn't here to choke against a basketball school, thankfully. That always helps too.

UMike, you are spot on. If the Canes defense doesn't drastically improve by Friday, the Duke game could be a loss. Duke is clicking on offense and defense. The Canes have not played up to pre-season expectations or standards on defense.

But the pleasant surprise has been this version of CMR's offense (even without Richards), which has been dynamic and explosive. Rosier has been very good, and Mark Walton is playing like an ACC Player of the year candidate. The offensive line looks like one of the better units in the ACC. CMR has also been dialing up the right play calling. If Walton stays healthy and has another game like this against Duke, he deserves to be in the Heisman discussion.

Two predictions:

1) Colin Kaepernick will become the hottest free agent in the NFL within the next two weeks, and when he signs will command a far higher salary than he would have prior to last Wednesday

2) For the sake of optics, the NFL will stop playing the national anthem or will opt for America the Beautiful or some other song.

Posted by: TonyCane | September 24, 2017 at 12:57 PM

Simple fix for the NFL, just keep the players in the locker room during the national anthem.

TonyCane

Although the opposition wasn't that great, the Canes still lead the ACC in total offense and scoring per game. That's a good sign

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | September 24, 2017 at 01:32 PM

It's very early, but at the moment the offense is scoring at a level needed to get to a national championship level. The defense, not as much.

TruCane81

Its amazing what happens when you attack the middle of the field! Toledo's QB is very good!

Dukes QB is just as good as Toledo's. They're definitely the two best QB's the D will face this year!

thirstybuzzardcane

That was one of those throws where we as fans don't know if it was the Rosier's fault or Jeff Thomas.... he may have ran the wrong route???

Posted by: WWIN | September 24, 2017 at 10:27 AM


It was definitely on Rosier! If you saw it in person, he missed him real bad. Thomas was wide open on the crossing route!

Toledo's thoughts on yesterday's game:

http://www.bcsn.tv/news_article/show/836756?referrer_id=878183

AeroCane

Hi Canespace friends!
I thoroughly enjoyed that game!

They say the biggest improvement for a team is between 1st and 2nd games - since I'm considering this our first game, you will see major improvement which means I predict 44-17 canes win Friday night!

Go Canes!

"How many of the QB's left on our schedule are as good as the one we faced today?"

Posted by: CoCane | September 23, 2017 at 11:39 PM

Draft eligible ones? Max Browne at Pitt, if he's even in the lineup to end the season, is marginally a slightly more talented prospect due to his prototype size. Jones and Dungey at Duke and Syracuse are also in the same general level of talent as this one was. Wimbush at Notre Dame could be trouble too but he's not considered a better prospect than Toledo's QB yet because he doesn't have nearly the same number of starts in his career. But even others than those four can get going if the front seven takes more than 15 minutes off like they did yesterday so this isn't the most important question now that the opener is out of the way a month in.

UMike

I expected them to look sluggish and I expected use to have everything a hard time again to this style of offense... Especially after a long layoff and not practicing at home etc. I think it showed in all the missed tackles. Our secondary is suspect, hopefully we improve. I think our D will improve..but Duke won't be a easy win. Walton looks a lot faster to me also

Go Canes!

It's a long season.

Tough to make any definitive assumptions about this team when they've probably only practiced 4-5 times in the last three weeks.

CaneRock

Delaney wasn't the only one screwin' up yesterday. Mike Jackson gave up the 1st long pass, He made the same mistake Delaney made when Delaney gave up that TD. And Young wasn't all that either.


You either trust your pass first defenders to be pass first defenders or you don't.

You either trust your DEs to set the edge or you don't.

BigWindyCane1

Prediction - if Delaney is on the field, Duke will go after him. And if Delaney doesn't secure his first interception (or at least a passed defensed), Duke will continue to go after him until a change is made. It's up to Delaney to determine to prove deserves to start over some very capable backups.

BigWindyCane1

All we can do is hope that the D improves over the course of the season...

Posted by: CoCane | September 24, 2017 at 10:46 AM

Well said. It must improve. One bright spot is that the defense against Toledo was better than the defense against BETHUNE Cookman. Still, it must get better. This defense is talented enough to be elite, but it isn't. Blown coverages and missed assignments were the biggest problems with this defense yesterday. Plus, if a seasoned coach, QB and WRs recognize the defense being called, they will find the holes and exploit them.

But some personnel adjustments might help. Two opponents have made it a point to pick on Delaney. The game of football can be cruel. It's often a matter of personnel and taking advantage of matchups. Good coaches and smart players recognize matchups, and Until an exploited player can prove he can win his matchup, they will continue to exploit a matchup.

75th ranked Defense. Yet to play a P5 opponent.

Delaney couldn't cover a baby with a king size blanket. Sit him the f*ck down!

CoCane

I expect the Duke game to be a close one. If Delaney was lock down like we were led to believe. We would destroy people...

Who would have thought that the offense would be better then the defense...

Go Canes!

Almost expectedly they looked really sluggish in the first half, with the offended looking as it did at times last year, blah and inconsistent. Our O-line dwarved their front 4 and that bad play was downright embarrassing at times.

Walton, Homer and McIntosh played like beasts and Rosier, aside from that really awful pick that could have derailed the game against better competition, looked solid all day. That huge throw on 3rd and 15 to Harley was beautiful.

Co asked how many QBs we'll see better than the one we faced yesterday and I agree not many, if any. That kid was a one man show at times. But either way we need to shore up our DB play big time.

Dukes going to be a dogfight imo. We can't have a half like yesterday and expect to win.

thirstybuzzardcane

Its amazing what happens when you attack the middle of the field! Toledo's QB is very good!

Yes Sir Tony Cane well next up is undefeated Duke on Friday in Durham then Florida State followed by Georgia Tech so buckle up.

All I care about tonight is that we have had two games, and two deletions of the opponents. Two down, twelve to go. Total. Nonstop. Deletion.

Next up is FSU. I can't wait. The Seminoles are about to be rendered obsolete.

Right on AleX.

Need to rewatch last years fsu tape.

TruCane81

The fact we were so bad pre snap may give credence to the team being mentally unfocused.

They were ruining football 101 zone coverage concepts while lining up.

It really was dno type shit.

Alex D

Every team from here on out might consider exercising the three step drop and release for their Quarterbacks. This will mitigate our pass rush and decrease the chances of our D Line getting hurries and sacks on their QB's; Our pass rushers should get theirs hands up to try and block the passing lanes bat down more balls.

TruCane81

Guys seem confused about how a zone really works.

Presnap every eligible reciever is matched up. You just dont run out of your zone when he does.

Our guys are grass guarders and this is a coaching issue.

TruCane81

Delaney is scared and thinking.

Its his last chance on the big stage and he is feeling the pressure.

It may help him to play more physically at the line with help over the top.

Still the mental and hesitation errors CANNOT continue into ACC play.

WWIN

Who else BWC? The only DB that has earned more playing time is Bandy IMO

The Canes scored 42 points in the second half! Talk about adjustments! The Canes play-caller did a great job. Great coaching on offense. It helps when you have Mark Walton, and Richards will also make the offense more explosive. Hopefully, the offensive chemistry continues for the rest of the season.

CoCane

Delaney is the biggest disappointment of season so far. Just bench him and take our lumps with Bandy and Dean...

Thanks for the shout out CGNC. I am a Florida resident now. No more Michigan 4.6% income tax for me! I now live in Satellite Beach, just south of Cocoa Beach (Atlantic side). The last Canes game that I went to was when I flew down, tailgated and went to the game with 86 etc. I don't remember the year, but 86 would. Maybe next year, I can buy tickets and go with all of you. Long drive from here, but well worth it.

I'm just curious... how exactly was brad much better than this guy?

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | September 23, 2017 at 07:01 PM

Do you need me to list all the reasons why Brad was better? Well....

1. His mom was Felicia from the movie Friday and the "bye Felicia" phrase was trending.

2. He's from California and we all know that all great QB's come from there.

3. He stayed committed to us during hard times with "The Cloud".

4. He worked on his play calls in his bathroom mirror.

5. He had good "stats" vs unranked teams.

Does that answer your question???

Posted by: TruCane81 | September 23, 2017 at 07:30 PM

Agreed. The DBs and LBs were not good in coverage and they missed a lot of tackles. Teams are picking on Delaney. From what I have observed with Dean and Bandy, they broke on the ball and didn't allow separation. They might be better options on passing downs. I didn't understand why the Canes stay in base defense instead of a nickel defense on passing downs. Too much confusion and no communication on defense.

DL played well. 9 tackles or loss and 4 sacks wasn't bad. I was hoping for 10+ tackles for loss, 5+ sacks.

BigWindyCane1

As a mobile QB, Rosier brings the dimension of the run. Rosier's mobility helps open up running lanes for Walton and brings a third legitimate threat on the RPO. Rosier's INT was a head-scratching play, but everything else was fairly solid.

Walton played like a running back that will be starting in the NFL next season

Sarasota 'cane

The halftime adjustments were awesome! This team will only get better as they get their conditioning and reps back up. If UM was a stock I'd rate it a solid "BUY"!!! Onward to Duke!!

Yep. But like I said, its a patchwork job, weve had weeks off... legit reasons here. The attitude is right, the scheme is right. Lets just get better against Duke and so on.

Diaz wont come out and rave about his defense like our last @sshole would. He knows it, he wont accept this, the team knows it, they will find their chip and everyone will adjust.

True.

I think the concept of the d is sound but the players are not matching up presnap so they dont end up guarding grass and playing catch up.

If our players were better metally pre and post snap, there would be turnovers galore.

Our lbs are not good in coverage.

There are way too many free releases and it neutralizes the pass rush. Gotta get mentally better and I am looking to the dc for answers.

Dude

Everyone we play will try the same strategy. No one wants our DEs slamming their QB.

Amen. 2-0, on our way to at least 10 and the Coastal.

Dude

Diaz is gonna be fine. He gets it, he knows the blue print. His 2ndary is a patchwork job, relying on several 1st year guys.

The Canes won on the field and also helped themselves on the recruiting trail
