So according to the Amway Coaches Poll we are Ranked 29th! I can live with that. Now let's Finish the Year 9th or better. Go Canes!

VA Cane

Very few of those people on TV or in the press really understand the game; tv talking head idiots. Bayless, Cowherd, Steven A Dumbass, Max Kellerman, Nick Wright, Lebatard, Joy Taylor, Jenna Wolf the unwashed Golicks, Greeny, Wingo.....they got an opinion just like a lot of people.These people just say it in stupid ways with no reason as to why. Players tend to understand the game better, give better insight!

Its a crap shoot for everybody. Clemson, Bama, GA, OK, OSU should be good....Clemson should start at 1 they are champs. After those teams it wide open.

We must beat FL to have a strong year. If we show up like LSU, it will be tough on the kids all year. We win, we feel good and have a favorable schedule and can have a good year. We are not contenders on the big stage, but our division is certainly reachable. We could be 12-0 before Clemson proves we are not there yet, but its a start. I am going for 1 at a time, heck with the rankings now...just play them...1 at a time.

Harry Miller

Let's start by beating the Gators first, How great would that be. I am coming 2,840 miles to see it.

solarcane

VA,
I think the same thing about the Florida game. We win the kids will totally believe The New Miami hype.
We get manhandled like LSU, the kids will lose a lot of the confidence and swag they established.
Either way, we don't win at least 10 games, the season was the same old same old

VA Cane

So true solar we really need to win the FL game first things first. We focus on that,it gives us confidence, the coaches confidence, and a think a plus for recruiting for the FL schools. A letdown...like last year puts a damper on the season right at the start. Yes we can bounce back...but do we? I fell very good about the D. O...dont know. I am not a PB fan, but if he is looking the best, puts his past behind him and can play...and lead go with it. Maybe Tates the guy.....just play the best competitor...and if he cannot handle it early...do not be afraid to play the other. Competition is the way to go!!!
I am looking forward to the game!!!!!
Windy some thoughts from you, Cocane, and all others is appreciated!!! Throw down friends!!!
Go Canes Beat UF!!!!!!

Agree and agree 100%.

herbieibis

Solar,
I can see 10-2 as well as I can see 12-0. Hopefully Manny will have them playing like the Canes of old where we beat these punk teams up, like Virginia and the rest of these scrub teams in the coastal and make their home field ours. Being rude guest is what The Herb is trying to suggest.

TonyCane

If we go 12-0 and play Clemson, that means a lot of things have worked. Our QB has emerged. Offensive playmakers have stepped up and our defense has remained stout.

So why is it impossible to beat Clemson?

Because they have more talent, better coaching and Superman at QB?

The Canes have had the talent over the last few years, but they have consistently struggled to show it on game day. The Coastal and this weak schedule lines up nicely this season for the Canes. It’s time for the Canes to finally take advantage of this, and beat the teams they are favored to beat (UNC, BCU, UCM, VT, UVa, GT, Pitt, FSU, ULouiv., FIU and Duke), and also pull off the occasional upset (UF) like Jimmy and Schnelly used to.

In the words of the late Al Davis, “Just win baby!” And everything else will take care of itself!

Nothing is impossible. And there are enough variables in football to make few games a guaranteed lock. Miami vs Clemson is not Savannah State vs Clemson.

Yes, the quarterback was knocked out even still...a team of 2 and 3 star athletes almost knocked Clemson off last year.

I refuse to concede any game.

Harry Miller

I think we need to wait until we beat fl. St.. If that happens then we can start to think about the possibility of beating Clemson. Getting that far undefeated means our Qb situation is going well and will be getting better each game along with tour offense line. We will have confidence . Nothing is impossible in college foot ball. Especially with our speedy wide receivers and two good tight ends.

Could all end if Florida stomps our arse like
LSU. I am going to stick with the new coaches.I guess i am just a Canes die hard.

You gotta believe.

Manny's post scrimmage interview.

"Bubba Baxa made a 70-yard field goal"

Might be different when the Gators are actually trying to block the kick.

No resolution in UM QB battle in scrimmage last night; all 3 QBs led one TD drive, but the QBs did throw two picks to Gurvin Hall. DIAZ didn’t say who threw the interceptions or what were the stats for each, but turnovers can be a basis for determining who eventually starts. I don’t have a preference, and trust Enos to develop and pick the right starter. 71% completion rate for the QBs is very very encouraging. To me, this shows the incredible impact of Enos.

Deejay and Harley both had great scrimmages according to DIAZ. No full stats offered by UM, so I cannot tell what this means. Everything else I heard is pure unsubstantiated rumors.

Theoretically that may be true.

But for the purposes of this blog TNWSS.

I trust Enos too... Just hope we can keep him...

(Of course that could ALL change if the 'O' even stutters for an instant!) LOL!

Go Canes!!

Posted by: TonyCane | August 04, 2019 at 02:22 PM

That was Lawrence’s very first start and he got knocked out of the game. Kelly was gone, another 5 Star QB had already transferred.

So yes they struggled with Syracuse, with their 4th string guy who’d never played a down.

If we get to Charlotte this year we have ZERO chance of beating them.

BigWindyCane1

LOL, Roach and Soup!

I have heard conflicting reports about who threw the interceptions and who ran in the TD as opposed to throwing it in. But I do think the INTs will be a deciding factor, along with having an ability to make plays and to get the ball in the hands of the playmakers. No matter how you slice it, 71% completion is very very impressive improvement and Enos deserves the credit. I think the offense will be much improved this year.

I have no evidence of this, but I think Enos and CMD have an idea of who they are going to start, but haven't said it yet. IMO, each QB has drastically improved but the QB battle is still close enough so that they will have all 3 QBs feel that they got a fair shot so that they don't immediately hit the transfer portal.

But after next week, they need to starting QB to settle in and develop some chemistry with the starters.

Florida edges us out in first game. We beat them for the national title.

**********************

I have seen this movie and liked the ending....

VA Cane

Clemson is loaded in key spots...they lost some good kids but with 2 NCs in 3 years they ARE winning and beating Bama....and kids want to go and play where you win....and we win kinda sorta....26 -13 last 3...lost 2 of 3 bowl games....and if it had not been for our D it would have been far worse.
I am realistic....we have not put the 3 phases together in a season really since Fiesta....so its not so attractive to come play here....yet. If I want to play football, the nightlife, campus beach etc dont mean a thing. I want to go where you are going to win, get an education, be on tv, get noticed and drafted. When you win big time, on the big stage in the big games, you get talent. I think since 03, we have not attracted the most talented kids so many decommits...and the coaching has been mediocre at best.
I like what I see so far; maybe we are getting it together in all 3 phases! FL is ranked 8 in coaching poll...one game at a time, lets get them in our sights focus and win!!! Thats a start. Dont think we beat Clemson...yet...but lets get there 1 game at a time!!!

herbieibis

Yeah Va Cane, we have 2 squads of 4 star decommits the last 2 years. Got to stop that steady leak. The biggest games for us is Flo. & FSU. Got to win both and if we do stubble against one at least look good in doing so. Got to get these high schoolers excited about coming to Da U.
We ain't beating Clemson this year, if we get there. They should average 42 pts a game with little sweat. Their Dee won't be as good but it doesn't have to be.

solarcane

If we get to Charlotte this year we have ZERO chance of beating them.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | August 05, 2019 at 11:39 AM

Haven't they beat us by a combined score like 96-3 in our last two match ups?

Old Skool

Was there any punting in the scrimmage? Just wondering if the "Thunder from Down Under" got to show his stuff.

Posted by: VA Cane | August 05, 2019 at 02:20 PM

Understood. And I'm not worried about Clemson right now. I'm concerned with the Gators. It's a very difficult game for us.

But IF we get to the ACC Championship game undefeated, I stand by the statement that this meant that Manny Diaz and co were able to accomplish quite a lot with a talented roster, and at that juncture there are no guaranteed winners, merely favorites.

thirstybuzzardcane

Tate threw some some darts in perfect locations in those highlights. Tate threw a TD which was not reported by Barry Jackson. I have a feeling Tate wiil be our starter!

#JustAFleshWound

solarcane

Soup,
the really amazing thing is you and I sat side by side in Death Valley
One time and saw the mighty Hurricanes beat the upstart Tigers.

solarcane

Thirsty,
I think Tate was the starter the day they yanked him out of the
Portal. Why would we have gone through the trouble to get him if Enos thought Perry or Williams has the potential to start?
Remember awhile ago when Manny said he didn't know if the starting qb was on campus? That was before Tate got here.

Posted by: 86Cane | August 04, 2019 at 11:01 AM

SYRACUSE has been their kryptonite.

We are better than that.

It’s a long shot, but I still think we win the ACC.
