I don't know much about the FSU QB other then her is a freshman... Would it be safe to load up the box and bring up the safeties for the run and short throws?

I owe you all an apology.

I am working w a FSU grad tomorrow, and placed a small wager on the game. It was about 1/4 second after agreeing to the bet, that I realized I just gave us the kiss of death. I jinxed us.

I deserve whatever punishment is doled out.

Yes and no.

He throws a good deep ball but is not incredibly mobile.

He is not exceptional reading the field so as l9ng as the corners dont totally whiff consistently, press coverage will lead to a miserable game for him.

They cannot beat us offensively.

Only thing that will hurt are turnovers, running into 8 man fronts on first down, ignoring the middle of the field and no proper blitz adjustments.

Of everything in this game, the only reason I see us not winning by 30 or 40 isthe oc playing into their hand being too predictable on first down.

Damn that Epi.

We gon kick fsu ass for the first time in a minute and you gon win your first bet on the same day.

So you're saying there's a chance?

UMIke - I'm a fairly big Canes fan. I'll leave it at that. Two things:

1) conservative scenario means a realistic scenario where the wheels come off, and what goes wrong can go wrong . IE lots of turnovers facing a fierce amped up FSU defense. But even then, I think it plays out as a reversal of the 2014 game.

2) I'll admit it - the previous regime left a bad taste in my mouth and conditioned me to an extent to have Lucy pull the football away from Charlie Brown. I want to see success and domination wipe away the Golden memories and restore precedent to the Canes.

Tony, u are right. We've been the Charlie Brown of CFB. We won't win big games until our offensive philosophy is to exploit matchups for 60 minutes.

UMike

They may not score a lot on us, but that won't matter if we can't score ourselves

If GREAT Richt shows up Saturday, we gon break our foot off in em.

If Sleepwalker shows up, could be an unnecessarily tense Saturday.

Terrance Sullivan

Let's win this game tomorrow and get on to bigger things like actually finally winning ACC Coastal play in ACC Championship Game shoot our shot and go for the win there. And hopefully we make playoff and shoot our shot their or worse case scenario play in Orange Bowl Classic and shoot our shot and try to win that. 14% Bus Baby for this year 15% bus every other year. Go Canes Beat FSU!

WWIN

UpNorthCane27

I was at a title company today, full of Seminoles. I wanted to bet anyone, just like a good Canepacer girl. The owner must have heard me, and he came in pretty cocky. He said the spread is 3 points and at "home", it's a FSU slam dunk. So, I had a Benjamin in my pocket, (for emergencies, don't you know). This was for sure, "an emergency". So, I was so happy to make that bet, even at their home and 3 pts. If I had $1000, I am sure he would have bet. What fun. I am flying back to Michigan, so will have to collect when I get back. I must admit that I am a little apprehensive about tomorrow. Mainly because I want the canes to kick butt so badly.
IT IS GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE. YOU BET YOUR ASS IT IS.
As an aside, I am totally for registering guns like cars. We pay for all the criminal element in spades, in so many ways. So, make it easy to know who the good guys are. And go after the bad guys.I don't have any qualms about registering a rifle etc. We now ALL have to join our fellow Americans and try to help to stop these maddening massacres. Enough of that.
IT IS GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!
Have a great time at the game all of you. What are thee scalpers prices?? Just curious.

There ya go Mary Lou! Glad you're not scared too!

Gameday

Old Skool

Woohoo it's game day.

Looking forward to hearing the results and seeing the highlights. Alas I'll be finishing dinner when it starts, then going to bed. Dang hurricane pushed back the Nole game into my vacation in Italy. Andiamo Canes!

Mary Lou dropping a Benjamin on today's game is all I had to hear to know this one is in the bag!

Game day official final score prediction is 34-14 Canes!!!

AeroCane

27-13 CANES
We get 6 sacks
ONLY way we lose is if richt plays not to lose rather than to crush the losers from trailerhassee!

UMike

So does the rain help us or hurt us?

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 07, 2017 at 07:06 AM

Imo opinion heps us. They already cant run the ball, can't throw to the TE or pass protect.

I think rain only magnifies those deficiencies.

We practice in it more and have great, experienced short passing targets in Herndon, Berrios and Walton.

NO TURNOVERS AND WE WIN!

thirstybuzzardcane

Great news. There is only a 10% chance of rain expected during the game! I really like our chances now.

Miami 24
FSU 6

Malik Rosier

I ain't never scared.

UMike

I thought I read there was an 80% chance of rain lol

Go Canes!

That was the forecast 48 hours ago but the storm slowed and moved west.

raizecane

Yup....looks like the weather will hold up for the game. May see a shower or two but nothing too bad.

DallasTX Cane

Lot of contradictions in game analysis. If fsu offense is bad and will have problems scoring against CANES D, then last thing U want to do is gift them turnovers that may lead to short field & easy score. Especially at their home when a couple of big plays can shift momentum. That makes a case for playing conservative - don't give a lesser team a gift that keeps them in the game or at least minimize the chance of doing so.

Other side is that playing a good D in a rivalry game on the road means U have to take chances because scoring opportunities may not come along very often.

IMO it's not Smart Mark calling a conservative game or an aggressive game per se. It's him picking the right times to play conservative and the right times to stomp em down.

All that coaching or more specifically all that play calling doesn't matter at all though if the players don't beat the guy in front of them. Football always comes down to match ups and physically / mentally beating the other player. Line up & kick azz! It's been a hell of a long time since we cOuld honestly say that we have the better players. Today we do. The players gotta prove it on the field though. Bring The Stick Boys!

DallasTX Cane

The changing weather has changed my thoughts a little... I see a close game early that the CANES D eventually takes over and the O scoring a lot in the 4th. 31-17 CANES

I would like to see the Hurricanes win the turnover battle. The Canes are clearly the better team, and FSU cannot be competitive without turnovers and miscues.
