But it may be better.

you may be right ... and i really hope so, cause i like college athletics
. . . but's it's kind of like predicting a canes game

. . . anything's possible
. . . including new types of corruption

- might strengthen college athletics; might blow them out of the water
. . . and anything in between including a whole lot of mixed positives & negatives

- new waters baby . . . you hope to land in india but might wind up in a whole new land with hostile natives

Me too

But it may be better. I think many top tier athletes would have stayed in school longer if they could have gotten paid something. Whether to get a degree or just enjoy college.

More importantly though it removes a line of attack againt the NCAA's creditibliity. The NCAA vote was unanimous because they knew their position was not defensible. The time was overdue.

Go Canes!!

The game will never be the same...

regarding our backfield:

cb's: are bandy, ivey & blades . . . + the 2 frosh, christian williams & te`cory couch, who i believe is redshirting

safeties + that specially named position regarding "roving linebacker" (what's it called?): finley, knowles, carter, bolden, hall, frierson
+ 1 redshirting frosh, keontra smith

take away the 2 redshirts and we're down to 10 for 4-5 positions
. . . we've been lucky, and we need to stay lucky, regarding injuries
. . . and we need refs not calling out targetting so easily on the canes side

I expect us to win, for one simple reason.
FSU is soft and they quit when they face adversity.

are you averring we will give our adversaries adversity?

i ain't adversative to that
. . . too much hope
. . . deep down, even a few rays of belief

i appreciate that; thank you!

I agree Big Windy and TSully,

I hate the way we have played look, execute....rather do not,
but I pull for them every game....Sat was not great as far as play, but the kids at least were determined to win....coaches wanted it too. Maybe that plus FSU gets a little pulse going.

I see a lot of issues and call out what peeves me, but ya got to pull for the canes....just life and lets hope it steps up!!

This team, no matter how bad they start or how poorly they execute, will battle to the bitter end. And imo that's what it will take to win this one.

To be honest I don't think any of us know if the game will end 34-13 Miami wins or 13-34 FSU wins. But we do know that the game will end in the score of 34-13 one way or another. That much is obvious.

💯! I blindly love my Canes regardless of whether they win national championships or not. I definitely don’t like losing, and I am not convinced that CMD is the right coach to get the Canes back into a state of relevancy. Right now, I see some weaknesses in his player/recruiting evaluations and player development systems. I also see some roster management concerns. I read he likes analytics, and that’s good. But I don’t see him excelling at the other coaching elements, but I could be wrong. It’s great to see the Virginia and Pitt wins, but the VT and GT losses at home were just plain bad performances. I hope CMD improves as this thing goes along.

That said, I will continue to cheer for CMD, Jarren, Perry or any other player in a Canes uniform.

GO CANES!

Why do people think we are better than FSU?

Posted by: HillViewCane | October 29, 2019 at 07:52 AM

Most of us do simply because even though hope and faith have left the building, our blind love still remains for the Canes. And not because we think we are great but because we think FSU is even worse than we are.

To be honest I don't think any of us know if the game will end 34-13 Miami wins or 13-34 FSU wins. But we do know that the game will end in the score of 34-13 one way or another. That much is obvious.

who be these "people"?

- fsu is favored to win

- here on the blog i don't think anyone EXPECTS the canes to win ... with some, there's possibly a "hope outweighs reason" feeling ... or maybe just a feeling of it being wrong not to predict a canes win, unless we play a powerhouse, like clemson/alabama/etc.

- i predicted an fsu win, but i already wish i had simply kept my mouth shut

- terrance predicted an fsu win and it caused him to eat his lunch twice

Dan Enos: I think Jeff [Thomas] will have to come in and earn [playing time] just like any guy who has missed time due to what he missed time for...

The writing is on the wall.

Soupster just let this one stay up until Gameday!

Spit it out or wash it down with a 6 pack.

That is an order!

- i see that we get pinckney, thomas & dj back
good!
. . . but to my surprise, i actually prefer kj osbourne fielding punts

- i hate saying this, but i think we will miss by about a field goal
. . . which is preferable than missing by an extra point (wasn't it vs fsu that that happened?)

- i also think jarren starts and is on the wrong end of a sack n fumble

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 86Cane | October 28, 2019 at 05:20 PM

There are only two constants this season.

1) We will have the lead in the fourth. 8 for 8 so far this season.

2) We will miss a FG. Or two. Or three. Not really sure if that one is also 8 for 8, but it sure as hell feels that way.

Terrance M Sullivan

FSU 21
Miami 20.
Ugh I just threw up in my mouth!

I'm going out on a limb and predict we will have the lead in the fourth quarter of the FSU game.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | October 28, 2019 at 04:34 PM

I agree. I am pretty certain that to win 34-13 we will most likely have to have the lead in the fourth quarter, so yeah, there is that.

Go Canes!!

solarcane

soup how bout the ones we wish we never heard of?S

86Cane

Miami has 8 cornerbacks on the roster, 4 you have heard of and 4 you have never heard of.

Miami has 7 safeties on the roster, 5 you have heard of and 2 you have never heard of.

Not sure exactly how many have played but among the ones you have heard of all have played (8-9).

solarcane

you know your living large when CBS Sports moves you up 12 spots to an amazing 63 in their weekly football poll.
CBS likes us almost as much as Sports Illustrated

solarcane

sully you are right 10 would be realistic

Herbieibis

Yeah and we will start out number 1 or 2 in recruiting only to fade into the sunlight.
FSU has played 14 Db's this year and all have played in 4 or more games. Do we even have 10 Db's on the roster?

Terrance M Sullivan

LOl they wasn't the Preseason Favorite to win the Coastal This Year Virginia was.

nemo2002

Don't worry! UM will be the pre-season favorite to win the ACC Coastal next year . . . as always.

BTW The Homecoming Game Against Louisville on November 9th will be 3:30 on ESPN2 or ACC Network!

Winning feels better than losing.

Beating Pitt feels like, well, better than losing.

Beating FSU will feel even better!

UM 34 - FSU 13

Aero
Don't Stop Believing,You Can't Always Get What You Want.

AeroCane

This has been a ‘crazy’ season
We need to ‘come together’ as a team and ‘walk this way’ (as our JJ and DE ‘train kept a rolling’)
I don’t want to ‘dream on’ and ‘I don’t want to miss a thing’ Saturday but I hope we win
I’ll be even more ‘jaded’ towards manny if we lose!
Best I can do this early

BigWindyCane1


Here we come, walking down the street.
get the funniest looks from everyone we meet.
