Me Too Big Al.I enjoy your outrageous views.

I expect us to play exactly to our opponents level every game. We play like crap against crappy teams, we play average against average teams.

We didn't get a chance to play lights out against a lights out team because we are in the ACC and dodged Clemson.

If FSU's running back gets a 100 yards I think we lose, he gets 50 I think we win.

We On Hate Week #3 Hopefully We Can Win This One Since We Gagged against Florida and VT SMH!

LOL this game will be something. It is a rivalry game and I am glad FSU is struggling too.

I don't like hearing the rumors someone posted about problems with the QB's but if we see Uncle Enos playcalling as needing improvement, imagine how they feel.

Go Canes!!

Agree on all 5 points.

- solar, thank you!

- rivalry game, you say?

that means it's a 5-8 straight! kind of like "10-4"
well done ... again!

The N.C.A.A. Board of Governors, under increasing pressure from legislatures around the country, voted Tuesday to pave the way for college athletes to profit off their fame, but it came with an elephant-size caveat: any future changes must maintain clear distinctions between amateur and professional athletes.

Acting like a teenager is fun

Acting like a grown ass man is responsible

Acting like your are 80 when you are 60 is like waiting for the first shovel of dirt to land on your face.

Good post. Solar

BTW. Despite all their issues, the Canes are improving even if it's only by increments. The Dolphins on the other hand .... compost piles generate more heat ... and buzz.

1. It's all I got left. I have been through every emotion that I have (stages of grief) and have expended all of the energy I can manage. I am now reduced to "dealing".

2. Gotta keep the chin UP even when the heart is DOWN in sorrow. Walk crisply, speak firmly and act like we have a purpose. Love is all that we have left after Faith and Hope left the building.

3. If "The Mandingo" can find a way to finish strong he has a chance to survive and even thrive. "Uncle Enos" is gonna have to help the cause in a much larger way if it is to be.

Before I go I would just like to say that IF the Canes could beat FSU by the score of 34-13 I would be pleased. Yes, very pleased indeed.

That is all.

Beating FSU is my Superbowl this year.

Hillview...Hang in there buddy!

BTW...you got your wish on the pay for play.

If you have thought this through then email me a blog article on the subject. I would love to read your point of view. Don't try to go middle of the road. Go ALL IN on why you think this is best and what the short term and long term results will be.

I will post it here for an open opinion blog.

I agree 💯! The Dolphins, Marlins and Canes football are disappointing, but the Heat, Panthers, Coach L and Katie do give us some hope.

The two game win streak with Rosier and Perry has been very enjoyable. I hope Jarren keeps it going on Saturday. If the Canes lose, I know the drill. I will have to shut off my cellphone for 48 hours, then delete all messages from FSU alumn who love to text me when we lose.

I wish this kid was here now.
When you are a junior in high school hitting 56 and 57 yd field goals you are badass. He even helps try to coach our pathetic kickers. 2021 recruit.

"But if any kicker has earned a scholarship offer, it’s Borregales. This year, he has hit 33 of 34 extra-point attempts and 11 of 13 field-goal attempts. His longest field goal of the season was 57 yards, and he hit field goals of 49 and 56 yards against Miami Central last week.

Borregales, a junior."

The Dolphins did exactly what they need to do - lose. I'm torn between two opinions:

1) The Dolphins have improved and are capable of winning games, as evidenced by recent scores at the first half. So internally, there are moral victories for the coaching staff. But their play calling in the second half is done in such as to guarantee a loss.

2) The Dolphins coaching staff are the absolute worst in the league at second-half adjustments, as evidence by not scoring any second half points in six of eight games.

Either way, I don't want Miami to get 1 or 2 meaningless wins and avoid getting a franchise quarterback next year.

TonyCane

Rivalry games can be such anomalies. Down here in Austin, I've seen really subpar Longhorn teams defeat far stronger and more talented Sooners squads this decade.

I'd LOVE to see Miami come out and lay a 40-3 obliteration on the Seminoles, rip up the entire field at Doak Campbell Stadium, and bring it back to Coral Gables as a sod cemetary field/landfill covering.

My prediction is that Miami will beat FSU 34-13.

I will stand by that decision.

Sarasota 'cane

FSU scores 30 in the 1st half, Miami 0.

Miami wins 35-30.

Go 'canes!!

orange 'n green in the vein

"Taking a step back though, I wonder if the only fan bases that are truly content are the ones in Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, and perhaps Oklahoma. You should here the moaning and wailing out here in Austin over the Longhorns' third loss yesterday.

https://philsteele.com/2019/10/29/2019-strength-of-wins-pain-of-losses-thru-week-9/

This year to date, Ohio State, LSU, Penn State, Clemson, SMU, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Alabama, Florida, Baylor and Appalachian State are the only fully satisfied fan bases. Everybody else has a loss they can feel at least some measure of a gripe about. felonious sexual assault university has had the 'better' shitty season than Miami has so far this year by this measurement.

It's going to be a close one again I imagine, neither coach can afford this loss so the drama will be high even if the ratings will be low compared to what they normally draw.

great blog to wake up to today!

- particularly solar's age post ("waiting for a shovel of dirt to land on your face"!!) . . . i'm gonna steal that one if i ever find an appropriate opening

- and old skool's compost classic (heat & buzz indeed!)

- and damn, ogv wrote something i not only understood, but agreed with!
. . . much better than his posts that "hawk a loogie" (as we said in the 60's) on a fellow blogger . . . aka, fun (for) da mentals, to steal VA's "go to"

alpine

agree with hillview and big wind regarding the miami teams
. . . i don't think i've supported any other team for at least 2 decades
(my support doesn't include the panthers ... ice hockey in s. fla??!!)

- my baseball support is shaky . . . but i kind of enjoyed taking in a few espn canes games last spring, cause i found out i could get a shytload of stuff done while i was "watching"

- agree hillview: the heat sound like fun this year; unfortunately, i have no way of watching them over here ... just internet the miami herald each day to check out what happened

- tip o' the season for fins fans: get an nfl.com subscription and instead of losing 3 hours that you can't get back, you simply wait until the "40-minute" version gets posted

fantastic plan!! . . .

I've been stretching myself a bit thin between work (start-up at the knife edge of getting fully funded and generating revenues), a fiancee (overseas - she's English not Russian email order) and a 96 year old mother who has a strong will, minimal hearing and short term memory issues. Opportunities for fishing and socializing have been limited.
I'd ultimately like to get up your way again, however, as you can guess, everything's up in the air at the moment.

if you are interested in the newest NCAA rules, which hillview will probably blog about later, you should definitely read the SI article:

https://www.si.com/college/2019/10/30/ncaa-name-image-likeness-announcement-takeaways-questions

". . . the new rules must clearly define college athletes as not employees. Also, NIL rights cannot interfere with the recruiting environment, nor can NIL payments be made to induce athletes to pick a particular college, remain at that college in lieu of transferring or transfer to another school."

- if your eyes start to close while reading the beginning of the article, make sure to at least fast forward to the 10 questions, which are excellent . . . and point out how little we know about the direction of this thing

- seems it'll be titanic-sized change with a lot of tugboats pulling in lots of different directions = the exact course is gonna be hard to tell
. . . also, who knows how many icebergs will be on the route (and how big)

. . . interesting times . . .

I like
I think enos would be a much better HC than manny
We don’t know what goes on behind the scenes but we do know that the HC is the HC (Ps not saying he would be good or who I’d want - just comparing a breathing human being to manny)
We also know that manny can’t recruit and that he plays patchen over Rousseau and a walk on lb over any other LB; we know manny hasn’t fired his buddy Patke etc
A lot of troubling areas for a HC imo

In hindsight the two best coaching prospects that UM let get away played each other last Saturday in Eugene, Oregon.

Mike Leach was UM's to lose and we lost him bigly. I wanted Butch, then I was happy with Richt, but if the opportunity ever presents itself again I want "The Pirate" to coach UM. Leach was begging for the job!!!

Posted by: AeroCane | October 30, 2019 at 10:31 AM

thank you aero; your post made me think

- at this moment, enos & manny seem to be two sides of the same coin:
... manny was an excellent DC; enos a very good qb-coach
... at HC, manny hasn't yet taken "the next step"; same for enos as OC
... both strike me as having had too much confidence in their "powers to turn things around" . . . and both are eating a bit of humble pie right now (at least, i hope they are!)
... i have (at least for now) confidence in both of them (because they are young, dedicated & football-smart), to slowly find ways to do better . . . and to make radical change by next year, if they don't see enough results in the changes they're making now
... that was richt's big cement shoe; he couldn't change at all; otherwise, he'd have been a good 6-8 yr. coach for us

more in my next post . . .

more regarding ^^^^

- recruiting-wise, i don't know f manny is bad . . . he seemed like he did a decent job holding our class together and getting some great dividends thru the transfer portal, which is recruitment
. . . bolden, trevon hill & kc osbourne were real finds!
. . . so i'm not ready to dump on his recruiting prowess yet

- patke is someone about whom i know nothing, including exactly what his job description is . . . is he purely the LB coach?
we have shaq & pinckney, who are excellent; finley & grierson have done a great job as roving LB, zach could better, though he had an excellent game at pitt
- the problem is, the 3 lb's he should've been developing (steed, jennings, wilder) are all hurt!!!!!!!!!
- of the new ones, joyner was looking good but is also hurt; huff is redshirting; brooks is middle lb and possibly they don't want to overload him with other responsibilities right now, but to keep him concentrated on mlb ... which would be a reason to put in a walk-on . . . maybe? i mean they also possibly f#kk'd up, but how do we know?
. . . it just makes it hard to really evaluate patke at this time

- regarding patchen over rousseau; harder to defend
... i'd love to have known what was going on (i'm not talking about the ridiculously uninformative coach-speak we all hear) ... at least that has been changed

still more in-coming (brings more 60's to mind: "duck & cover"). . .

alpine

i can't really find fault for those calling for manny's ouster, but since it's not happening, i don't really see a choice as a fan other than seeing the glass 1/3 full instead of 2/3rds empty

- i'm still thinking that JJ's blessing, after spending a decent amount of time with him, might have been sincere and might mean that deep down, manny has some HC traits that will rise and carry him over this putrid beginning

- other than that, i think 58 str8 nailed it in this blog
. . . he has to start winning
. . . lose a couple more games and he'll not only lose the fan base, he'll lose more recruits and worse of all, possibly the team, which to this point still like him a lot

I was reading an article on LSU.
They were unanimous in their feelings that they could not beat Alabama using their 20 year old SEC offense playbook.

In 2014 they were 112th in the nation in passing offense, now they are 2nd.

When Texas AM joined the SEC it signaled an end to winning
championships in the SEC with defense.

The days of 14 play drives keeping you in the game are in the rear view mirror, teams can score from anywhere out of the spread.

Miami is living in the past.

If u have watched the last 2 weeks, we have been getting pinched in to much and allowing the RB's to get to the outside. That's where we need to tighten up that and it would help if we tackled better.
