Sarasota 'cane

In hindsight the o-line didn't cost the 'canes the game last night, the 3 glaring gaffes on Special Teams cost them the game.

The Gators fake punt, the 'canes muffed punt, and the missed field goal were a hat-trick of momentum killing suck that gave UF a 17 point swing in a game decided by 4 points.

10 wins is doable and 11 wins would be an epic season for a rookie QB and head coach. The penalties can be cleaned up before UNC with the exception of some holding calls which are likely inevitable with that o-line.

I think this is gonna be a fun season.

Go 'canes!!

Good afternoon Canespacers. I don't know the intimate details of football, like all of you. But, we weren't ranked anywhere. Florida ranked #8. We could have won,should have won, but I am pleased with what I saw, although pissed for sure. Inexperienced, freshman quarterback, etc. Manny did a hell of a job and we led most of the game. That is what really hurts. If I had to lose to either the gators, or the seminoles, I guess I would choose the gators. Nevertheless, I am really in pain today, because we really should won. Time for some Excedrin, for this pounding, splitting headache. I must have replayed the whole damn game in my head, not sleeping well. I think what hurts the most, is that we waited an entire year for football to begin. I am happy we didn't have the awful coaches of the past.

Does The Herb since a tone of a moral victory on here? As I said last night ugliest game I ever saw and Campbell had the worst game I've ever witnessed a player have. Nelson is still stuck in his stance while Zuniga is blowing by him.

10 sacks, what 14 or so penalties, a gift from Thomas on the door step. Mistake after mistake and we still should of won the game.
Enos came out with a lot of shifts and movement and then as quickly as we saw all of that it disappeared.
The big mistake Manny made was not kicking the FG with 4:50 left. Baxa is good for one chip shot miss, in his short career.
Oh line needs to reshuffle. Teams ain't going to wait for Campbell and Nelson's lights to come on. If those 2 are the best we got then Williams won't make it through the season. We have a ton of play makers and some who obviously took a siesta last night.
The defense looked solid but I guess by design didn't get a lot of pressure on Frank's.
No doubt we will get better and Florida ain't that good, not no 8th rank good.
We made their See look good because of the talent on the Oh line.
Nobody else on our schedule except FSU will have Florida type talent, so we should be in good shape but that's only that line gets better.

VA Cane

gnv....
we move on win the next one!

VA Cane

Raize how kind of you!
they got a couple so did we...we are young on the OL.....we sorta suck....but we were in it to win it to win it to the end....we gave up too much sacks and we missed plays on D and ST...make em we win......but coulda woulda shoulda dont matter we coulda won we did not..MOVE ON!

raizecane

so its 2:45 AM and I just got home from the game......All I can say is it was a damn home game for Florida with about 50K fans there.....But Canes were represented....I was stuck in the middle of Gator country and did my best not beating the crap out of some of them....phucking idiots. But a couple of them told me I was pretty cool....and I was like "you fuckers are so lucky".

Anyway, I am proud the way we played and the future is bright.

Old Skool

86 you up? It's 8:50 AM

VA Cane

gnv,
all respect to you...winning is what matters....it makes your future and program....my aunt and uncle moved here in 1971.....saw UM games when we sucked....saw 1983 from sidelines....love them so much...it matters..put my niece through school at UM........her folks abandoned her to me...she has done well....a scientist...I love school and football..win in always....U r a big fan.....lets just win....together!!!! Welcome to CS always!

VAC

VA Cane

Same to you friend...we had a great chance to win....STs sucked...OL was bad....fundamentals were bad..D had a couple bad plays....good fundys we win!
No hard feelings here either...I just expect to win!
I see you want and expect that too. We lost should could would have won...dont work that way!!!!
We move on, learn and get better as a TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!
Good to chat with you and exchange thoughts!!
We move on beat UNC AZZ!
Peace VA CANE!

gnv

Agreed, no hard feelings. We both love the U and that's all that matters. Much respect to you and good night.

VA Cane

Bottom line...you played against good talent in HS I won 38 in a row in HS... college we played UM Bama TXAM Houston many other ranked schools at VT...but that does not matter...been at it 40 years....all I want is for UM to win.....we both were probably good in our careers.....but playing CFB is much different than HS ball. I am not calling you out either...glad you love UM we may have a different view....yes move on...next game for UM is all that matters... get better!

gnv

I'm not here to be talked down to or get impressed by your choice in career. Good for you if you chose to coach football. I chose a different career path. I played at 5"10" 195lb's in the state of Florida (late 80") so I"m sure the talent I played with and against will embarrass whatever talent you played against in VT. Show respect and get respect. I'm stating my opinion as an intelligent fan of football. I didn't come on here calling you "son" or implying how you were so much better than me because as we both know the one's who like to brag about themselves are usually full of it. So move on, we can agree to disagree on views and that's all..Good day to you.

VA Cane

Clemson aint looking at us or anybody else in the ACC..they are better by far...but we still have some talent and we are not bad....get better!!!!!!!!!

VA Cane

gmv,
I coach small kids, HS and college..I was a HS all State QB DB AA 38 in a row 2 state titles in college at 5 7 170 started 2 yrs at VT smallest but toughest DB in the nation....I beat more WR azz than you ever seen or dreamed of playing!
I coached Clelin Ferrill, Morgan Moses Anthony Harris to places in the NFL...40 years I coached more kids to major college football than you can spell it.....fundamentals win games as does talent..we have talent....no fundamentals follow UM since 2003 no fundamentals we suck..t5ats why we lose...we aint clemson or will be them...yet...but we can be! Love your competitive attitude.....GO UM!

VA Cane

solar thanks so much for the Rock and Roll u are so incredible...and your animation stickers....Dude you and Soup are the shit...wish I was that good.....me ...and the Canes are not close...yet..I will send you something you will love be patient...meanwhile Soup and Mrs Soup enjoy Europe....love this place..lose win tie...the best!!!!!!!

gnv

With all due respect VA Cane, you don't need to teach me squat about fundamentals. Just because I don't come on here and talk about pee wee football and how dominant I am at it. Does not mean I don't know the game. I'm referring to the big picture and if you don't think Clemson paid any attention tonight then you might be the one that needs to look things up. Every start to our runs in the past started with subtle changes. Of course we took painful loses with subpar play (Jimmy's first year / Butch's first year too) but you can see the subtle changes in attitude, conditioning and approach to the game.

Are we gonna beat Clemson this year, I don't believe so but alot can happen from now till then. Obviously things need to improve and if they do then who knows? We had multiple players, playing as full time starters in a big game for the first time. They will get better cause we have better coaching who will address those deficiencies. It's a long season full of many lessons.

solarcane

"The sack was the first the Hurricanes have allowed this year, the first in 12 regular-season games dating back to last year's Temple game. It was the first yielded in 845 plays."
(Ken Dorsey record)

845 plays in a row without being sacked once, and Kenny wasn't the most elusive running Qb we ever saw.

Williams has a great jump on most times sacked in a season

VA Cane

I HATE LOSING.......you should too!!!!!!!!
VA Cane

VA Cane

Sad Andrew Luck has 10 more years great guy met him at a clinic awesome dude...best to a great QB...greater person!

VA Cane

You lose as a team...OL QB..not great...ST not so good..D great....for most still folded!!! You win on all 3 teams..we were supposed to get smoked....we were in it til the end. GET BETTER....BLOCK SOMEONE MF....MAKE A PLAY...WORK TOGETHER....
Man up get better on all phases!

VA Cane

Son Son gnv
no Clemson does not have to take notice..yet...they may see us...and will beat our azz in the title game...but without stupid mistakes errors and judgement horrible O and ST...average + D...since 2004...15 years we do this shit always...we SUCK on FUNDAMENTALS look them up I can teach you the definition of fundamentals.... until we correct that we will finish ...well average or so..maybe ya like that.....I like TITLES NC TITLES...IJS

solarcane

The Gators would beat all the teams in the Coastal by a larger margin than they/we beat us.

We have a qb, we have an OC,we have a strength coach, we have a dependable receiver in KJ, we didn't fold. We are way better than last year.

Every player has a bad game. Look at JT4s hilights with Rosier and kosi throwing to him. He made some incredible catches. He didn't lose this game.

I thought some of our tackling in the secondary sucked, Blades comes to mind.

When the game first started and we came out in more formations in two series than we did in the last two seasons combined it was refreshing.

A stable O line that has played together for two seasons and this offense could be dangerous.

I am looking forward to this season.

gnv

The rest of the ACC (including Clemson) took notice tonight. We made tons of mistakes {they will be fixed}. The line will improve and the offense will tailor plays around the weakness until it's corrected. Can't speak for anyone else but I feel so much different tonight {as confidence for the future} then I did this time last year {at the end of the LSU game} Time will tell in 2 weeks, we'll see how or if these issues tonight are addressed against NC.BTW, Franks is garbage and his fans are gonna turn on him as the season goes on. He can't keep his emotions in check.

VA Cane

Painful...move on people...focus on NC!

VA Cane

You cannot give up 10 sacks plus countless hurries.....you cannot miss points give up TOs and give their O easy scores...we did we lost!!!
couple bad calls...but they evened out...we lost!!!!!
suck it up MF!!!! win the3 next one ...and all others 1 at at a time!!!!!!!!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

"Felipe Frank named the Turds starting QB. They’re going to be wonderfully awful this year! Posted by: Go Canes!! | August 27, 2018 at 12:47 PM"

Owned in every way GD. That's you alright . . .

Franks = 17-27 254YDS 2TD 2INT
7 carries; 8 yards; 1.1 average rush; 1 TD; 12 longest run
1 fumbles; 1 lost

Williams = 19-30 214YDS 1TD
14 carries; -44 yards; -3.1 average rush; 0TD; 8 longest run
2 fumbles; 0 lost

Still the stupidest poster on this blob!

VA Cane

No team since the last win would have competed with UF....their OL DL was better period. BUT we played to the end Clap Onion AlPa CMR teams never did that...so we lost I hate it. F**K I hate it!!!
BUT we saw a team that did not quit against a superior opponent!!!! We live and learn!!!!!
We hit hurt hate...we hit like Jack Tatum...and WIN!!!!!!!!

VA Cane

JT4 had a couple nice plays...muff..happens...catch in EZ was tough for anyone...not his fault...his muff hurt...but STs OL D at times all hurt...move on from this shit...you win/lose as a team....41 years of coaching....53 years since I was 7 in football...its a team...we lose and win together.....we could have won...we did not...we did good things we did bad things they did too....it was breaks and we fell short. Move on if you LOVE UM!!!!!

Sarasota 'cane

We need some pigs but the team can fix a lot of this shit. Period.

Florida sucks.

Go 'canes!!

gnv

I hated losing to the Turds but I see tons of positives that will get rectified. We have a true coach with a vision. A real quarterback that does not make dumb decisions. Our defense is legit, they had to respect the offense FLA runs and that's the reason they couldn't just fly upfield. We'll have a good season. I believe tonight we showed recruits that we are heading up. If you look at the Turds fan's faces they had the "Oh! crap. I thought this was going to be a blow out. I hope we win" look till the end.

gnv

LMAO! at people bad mouthing JT4. These are the same ones that are gonna kiss his butt as the season goes on. JT4 had a bad game but to say he stinks or should have gone to Illinois shows nothing but ignorance. Williams had no time to throw. How were the receivers gonna magically go flying down field and get open when Williams had 2 seconds to get rid of the ball? The tackles will improve with time. They faced the best line they'll face all year. This will be an eye opener and motivator for them to work on their craft.

VA Cane

Windy I agree. The OL was very bad at times...but their front and LBs are good..period. We are young and got our ass whipped up front...fact...its not good. JW15 needs to learn to throw it away...he will. The D was good most of the night..last TD were tired but no excuse you knew you would be on the field. We missed some coverage...early. We missed some key tackles..first FL td AB JR whiffed Dad dont.... Way too many motions delays holdings..they cost you. ST...let them convert 4th on punt...JT muff...hurt...We get TO..late Al gets USLC....unacceptable play so dumb...we do things right...we still win on FG at end...did not happen..but we were in it til end.....not like last year....should could would dont count...winning does....we beat ourselves and we should know it....BUT forget learn..move on hold head high learn to win!!!!....WAANT TO WIN IT MATTERS!!!!!!!!!

BigWindyCane

Lots of great points on here, but I will add a few more not discussed yet.

Canes held the Gators to 52 yards rushing, less that 2 yards a carry. Even with the sacks, the Canes outrushed the Gators 87-52. It’s rare for a Dan Mullen offense to have only has 52 yards rushing for a game. The Gators are a rushing offense, and the Canes shut down the run. The Canes rush defense really couldn’t play much better, and to shut down an SEC team running game is a big step from last season, where LSU, Wisconsin and some ACC teams gashed the Canes run defense. The Canes didn’t get as many sacks and TFLs this game, but overall, the Canes rush defense did a solid job.

The problem was that the Canes gave up too many passing yards, especially poor tackling. I give Franks credit on that throw down the seam where he looked off the safety and hit #10 who was covered by Frierson. But the rest was poor tackling and covering the backs, TEs and receivers in the flat. The Gators actually had more passing yards than the Canes, 254-214, and the Gators had 3 fewer pass attempts. The two interceptions helped the Canes, but the Canes pass defense has some work to do.

Herbieibis

Still can't find away to win the big games on the road.
With this Oh line, Enos might want to rethink having Williams under center and using play fakes. Line might be better suited for the spread.

thirstybuzzardcane

Florida didn't win the game, Miami lost it! Florida was playing like the underdogs with the fake punts, and going for it on 4th downs. They got lucky tonight!

thirstybuzzardcane


Felt a little like the Washington game in 2000. With Dorsey getting abused and not getting time, maybe just hoping but there was a lot of promise tonight.

Posted by: Nickb | August 24, 2019 at 11:56 PM


I was thinking the same thing!

thirstybuzzardcane

JT4 also dropped a Go ahead TD. Trash.

Posted by: JTIlly | August 24, 2019 at 11:22 PM

Tough catch, but could've hauled it in!

TonyCane

Worst offensive line performance since 1999 Va Tech or 1994 Nebraska. That said, that’s the worst that this unit will look for the rest of the season. I’m actually really optimistic heading out of this game.

Nickb

BigWindyCane

Great points JaxCane and VACane. The Canes are very young on offense, and they played like it. Like Jimmy said, this team is better than last season and will get better and better as the season goes on. The Canes will be tough to beat down the stretch

Herbieibis

Well sports fans, The Herb is sorry but Nelson and Campbell ain't solving our tackle problems. That had to be the ugliest football game I ever witnessed and the dam of it all we actually should have won.
Williams has got to learn to throw the ball away. 10 effing sacks. Should have kicked the FG with 4:50 to go in game. Down a point with that much time and especially the way our OH Line was playing.
Thomas stunk. Where were Wiggins, Pope and Harley? Our route running left a little to be desired. Got to give the Crocs credit, they had no respect for our offense. We had a bad first half of tackling and I can see why Shaq and Pickney came back. Mallory is another player that went missing. All those penalties, reminded me of the Cotten bowl from years gone by.
Didn't put to much pressure on Frank's all night and their OH line ain't great.
Williams will be alright, maybe by the time he is a JR. We will maybe find a couple Tackles that can keep him in one piece.

JaxCane

Two huge drops from Thomas and Brevin. I think we have a qb. Quarterman was exposed in coverage, offensive line is the key to determine how well this season ends. I like the pieces, young guys were slow off the snap and was given a class 1 tutorial tonight.

As jimmyy Johnson stated this team will improve as the season goes on. If the gators are top 10 we are definitely in the mix.

To all the dume and glume clowns suck a dick. We played offense in bad field possession all night with 2 freshman tackles and basically a freshman qb.

Go CANES

Mia Chi Cane ‘98

Manny better take a recruiting trip to Midwest and find some real offensive Lineman.

JTIlly

JT4 also dropped a Go ahead TD. Trash.

Terrance Sullivan

Lol at the Gators playing in the Championship Game. Just Stop that foolishness! Jeff Thomas should have went to Illinois. Oh Yeah just stop playing Hartley and Pope They Suck!

BigWindyCane

Essentially, the Canes are a young team on offense, and they played like it with all the mistakes. But that said, the canes are better on offense and the defense will get better.

I like Hillview’s prediction. The Canes run the table and beat the Gators in the championship game. That will take some of the sting out of losing to the Gators tonight

VA Cane

The breaks...their ST fake....the muff....the missed chipper...and the OL......we gave up so much.......bad football...some of you think penalties and stuff is SWAG...I hate SWAG...no ....false starts...substitution....sacks..you can never win like that...Al blades missed several tackles....got a stupid USLC...he is good...aint his dad and this aint his dads UM....he needs to gorw up fast...JW15 was good...but battered....we could have won mistake free...but ST..OL...and lapses in D in critical times cost us....a FG at end would have won....we fell short again...BUT we were there!!!

Posted by: solarcane | August 24, 2019 at 10:55 PM

Agreed! Looks like we got a QB.

nemo2002

The NEW Miami?

Sorry, but our OLine is horrible. And we don't have a dominant player on the DLine. So, it looks like another disappointing season.

We played hard. We beat the spread. But a loss is a loss. And a loss to any other team in Florida is a BAD loss.

BigWindyCane

Jordan played great, but Williams did give Jordan a chance to make a tough catch. The ball did touch Jordan’s hands. If Jordan made that catch, he would have gone down as one of the greatest plays in Hurricane history. But he had a great game otherwise, so it’s hard to be too disappointed.

Williams played great in the first three quarters, but IMO, he didn’t play well down the stretch. DeeJay stepped up, and the wildcat was our most successful running formation. Too many sacks allowed by the offensive line, but Williams didn’t help with holding the ball and pocket presence issues.

I am disappointed, but overall, I saw some really good things that CMD can build on. The canes are clearly a much better team than last season—No doubt about that! Anything short of 10-11 wins with this schedule, will be disappointing

solarcane

IMO, Jarren played great but he still has a some things to work on.

Posted by: BigWindyCane | August 24, 2019 at 10

Windy he won't face a defensive rush that fast again this year until Clemson, He will be fine, Maybe get him some quicker throws, he does hold that ball.
His rushing yards must be off the charts

VA Cane

tough game..missed field goal missed ST play muff....10 sacks.....too many penalties horrible OL I mean bad.....D got beat at end...we could have won this one....could dont mean jack...but we were in it way more than the experts said...weak points are the ST...not aware cost us 2 scores....FG at end we win....D was poor on last drive by FL..OL worst I have seen in long long time...shame on their effort slowness fatness stupid penalties....lot to work on but...we competed like hell and were in it til the end.....

HillviewCane

Well I said we would lose this one to FL and beat them in the championship game. I am still sticking with that

Mia Chi Cane ‘98

SOC -OL and ST. Suck

Terrance Sullivan

SMH!

solarcane

We are in the best physical shape I have seen in a decade

Congrats to the Gators, they deserved it even while they tried to give it away all night.

Going to be another long year.

Special teams picking up at blowing the season right where they left off under the same regime last year.

This is why you never promote from within off a team that goes .500

At least Shannon had a Broyles award. Where's Diaz's Broyles award? You mean, he doesn't have one...

solarcane

Florida a strong 18th or so in the country

IraqiCane

He should have had that catch.

BigWindyCane

IMO, Jarren played great but he still has a some things to work on.

IraqiCane

I swear the gaytors want us to win this game.

IraqiCane

Nice

BigWindyCane

Thanks Marco Wilson!

solarcane

Williams thinking yea statue of liberty play yeah

IraqiCane

Agreed VA.

VA Cane

Holding...7 sacks....penalties and that pressure...you have a tough time to win!!!!!

solarcane

I meant the Martell call was stupid

VA Cane

D was tired...but no excuse for last drive!!!!
Just get better!!!!!!!!!

BigWindyCane

That missed FG earlier in the game has come back to bite us

orange 'n green in the vein

VERY EXCITING REPLAY NOEL!

VA Cane

he was down...first call they got right for both teams all night!!!!!!

solarcane

Stupid call

IraqiCane

Haven’t heard as much about KJ as I thought we would.

solarcane

Bubba comes up short on a sure TD run then misses a sure FG him and Thomas

VA Cane

You get a break....not score on a chippy....D on field all night....get beat on a fly...cannot let that happen .now the O has to step up....do something this time...no quit we have been in it all night....now step up

BigWindyCane

TSully, you are right about JT

Go Canes!!

From a potential first and goal at the 1 with a chance to ice it to this.

Self destruction yet again.
