There will be better days

roachcane77

Yes. Better days lie ahead.

HOWEVER, our 3 star "starters" were just not up to the "layers" of 5 star players available up and down the Clemson sideline. We've got to continue recruiting on a high level, and get even HIGHER, if we want to compete for the National Championship again.

We also appear to need more LIVE scrimmaging during our BYE weeks, with LOADS of crowd noise pumped in, and OFFICIALS!

Our Canes must now WIN OUT, and take our "2nd crack" at a now "overconfident" Clemson Tiger team in the ACC Championship game.

We got this!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Why? Because you said so? Or because of the facts that you are about to produce for us? Please elaborate?

58 Straight

Until our OL, WR, CB and LBs get better we are not going anywhere. King is here for ONE year. After that well we will see.

Question: why do they give N’kosi back-up reps...he comes in like always like a deer in the headlights and throws a pick, is Van Dyke that bad?

is Van Dyke that bad?

No, just likely protecting him from injury.

Plus Manny has no clue.

TheWordFromTheHerb

I don't know about some hamburger but more like swiss cheese.
It boggles The Herb's mind, that with 2 weeks to prepare, that crap is what we had to offer.
I just don't get why we can't get WR's open any where on the field. This has been an on going problem for the last several years and don't matter whose coaching.
It's like the DB's are running there routes for them.
LB's are not filling gaps and I understand that we are not loaded with a ton of high end talent but Clemson had a bunch 3 stars playing like jack rabbits.
DL getting gutted to much. Ford is ok and Silvera is playing better but neither are great run stuffers and dam if we don't cough the edge up to much.
We played hard I thought but we also played stupid, with all the penalties.
Like I said last week, I rather lose the first game we play them.
They started 4 new Oh Linemen and didn't miss a beat.
Venables is the difference maker. Them dudes play fast.
They keep Qb's, WR's and DL coming like grand central station.
At least 2 top 10 to 12 recruiting classes away from sniffing the top 10.
We need up grades of talent at LB, WR, CB, Oh line and DT. It looks like this next class will help the DT position. The OH line talent looks like it was addressed. CB and Lb not so much. I have no clue, if we can ever get one go to WR.
That is all, for the time being.

I don't think we will get to play Clemson again this year. Other teams played them better than we did. WE don't have a wide receiver that can get open against good corners, when they do they can't catch the ball. It's like they have Vel-cro that's stuck to the corners. Hell they can't catch a punt either. No defensive line that can handle a good offence line. They can't stay on sides. they can't stop making stupid penalties etc. They can't go through the rest of their schedule undefeated.
I am done with them. Been waiting for them to long now.

Wait what did I just say, Just kidding, us old True Cane Fans will still be watching, hoping,
waiting and wishing for that big game win and
another Championship. That is who we are.

I was thinking the EXACT same thing CaneGirl! Van Dyke was tearing it up in the spring, and now nothing...

MLALUMNI1970

I just don't get it either. Two weeks to practice, etc, knowing their entire game plan, players, coaching, and everything else. I love my team and want only good for them. But, something is wrong! Please, tell me what it is, Canespacers, so I can feel better. I question if we will win any more games. WHAT IS WRONG???

Posted by: CGNC | October 11, 2020 at 11:24 PM

Another theory: Diaz/Lashlee don't want to start a QB controversy? They promised King that IF he came that he would be the starter for his one year here?

Van Dyke will get his shine next year.

Soupster Dropped The Mic 🎙 On This One!Well Done ✅!

86Cane

Terrance...thank you Sir!

CGNC

86 - I get that, but for back up reps, don't you think it would be good to get Van Dyke some reps?

CGNC

86, can you please coach the team?

I’d love to hear if this loss helped or hurt with Garcia? Hopefully he sees it as a great opportunity to compete to play as a true freshman. (And laughing at how weak king’s arm is)

Of course I do, but I am not Manny Diaz.

Nah, I'm not going up Hamburger Hill or taking a pay cut from my Canespace salary just to coach the team. I'm good thanks!

Branden Jennings, legacy of FSU and brother of UM's Bradley J, just decommitted from FSU. Would love to have a 4 star LB join his brother at the U.

“Until our OL, WR, CB and LBs get better we are not going anywhere.“

Please add a real head coach to list of needs.

DallasTX Cane

Nice article 86.

OL has been and continues to be our single biggest problem. If U can run, if U can protect your QB, U will have success on offense. On Sat night we couldn’t run in the middle and we couldn’t set the edge to get outside. No run equals long yardage to first downs equals DL teeing off on QB. Now when OL cannot protect QB either, U got nada.

What we need is simple. Better OL play. Or better OL players. Only upgrading the OL wouldn’t have meant a win vs Clemson - the entire roster AND coaches need to be better to do that. BUT, a better playing OL is essential. We can still win a bunch of games this season. We need better OL play though

DallasTX Cane

It is King’s team this year. And deservedly so. He might not be the best college QB in Canes history but he’s the best we’ve seen in some 15 years and the one position we don’t need to stress right now.

CoCane

DTX

The OL has improved. They still aren't elite but only start 1 Sr. They aren't good enough to compete against contenders yet but Justice is getting them right...
Even if they were elite, with our trash WR's you could still load the box and blitz all day. The offense's biggest problem is WR

58 Straight

So what you guys are saying is that the OL doesn't give the QB enough time to throw the ball and even when they do there is no open WR to throw to?

Is it just me or does that sound like a bad combination?

HerbieIbis

I hear ya CoCane. The dam missing links, where DB's Like velcro.
Against the elite talented teams, we won't be able to run much anyway.
Pope is the biggest disappointment, the dude just ain't got it or at least he hasn't shown up yet.
This offense, should have WR's running open but for whatever reason, these suckers couldn't shed a coat.
Pitt will do close to the same thing Clemson did. The Oh line is not great but when u got 8 men in the box and they are constantly blitzing, unless we hit some passes and make them pay, King won't have a prayer.

Miami 27-21.

Terrance M Sullivan

Preach Cocane Are WR are the biggest problem and its not even close! A Bunch of Sad Sack Suckas SMDH!Dudes Can't Catch, Dudes Can't Fight For The Damn Ball, Dudes Can't Seperate, Dudes Are Horrible Route Runners, Dudes Are Horrible at locating and highpointing the deepball! Straight Trash. Does The Line needs to improve sure but we have seen improvement from them but no improvement from our trash arse Receivers!

CGNC

Shout out to TSully for "trash arse receivers". Made me laugh

86Cane

Being told to expect a very different approach by UM against Pitt. Source says UM did not believe they could beat Clemson so they sat on the game plan. Watch for different play calls, routes and strategy in passing and running game coming up.

No more hamburger, straight up ribeye baby!

Are you joking or do you believe it?
If true, what a loser coach mentality!

Old Skool

Gators have suspended football activities for the time being. COVID outbreak. Poor Defense. They couldn't keep it covered and it got open

HerbieIbis

Say what, I knew we weren't going to beat Clemson but at least put forth sum dam effort and not taking an ass beating.
Unless they find some WR's, I don't care what game plan they come up with, they are going to struggle.

I don't believe it's 100% true direct from the coaches mouth so it may be more of a rumor or an insider's "assessment" or an "assumption" but it sounds somewhat "strategic" and prolly about right to me. If you see crossing patterns, drag routes, quick slants, rub routes, screens, draws, more go routes and also throws to the RBs and TEs then you will know it's prolly mostly true.

If the WRs are useless let them clear the field by pushing the coverage deep and throw to the TEs and RBs underneath in space.

Oh and I am told some quick pitches and "option style plays" with the two TE sets may be added/utilized to get to the edge.

We will see.

86Cane

I was told to go back and watch the FSU game and then watch the Clemson game, not to judge the quality or the players or defenses of the two teams, but to watch the UM play calling and routes to see the difference and that it was the tip of the ice berg of what is to come.

AeroCane

LSU - gators postponed
Saben has covid;
We better be safe so we can keep playing

TonyCane

NFL scout at the game was reported to have said that only Bolden, Mallory, Jordan, and our kicker and punter would be starting for Clemson. There is a talent gap when comparing against the top team in college football. That said, the same scout stated that if you transplanted Clemsons linebackers over to Miami, it would be a much more competitive game. The scout was also really high on TVD, although I’m not sure where he is getting that information from.

TonyCane

One other thing....

Does Miami have enough talent to beat everyone on their schedule but Clemson? Yes

Does Miami have enough talent to make it close and even beat Clemson with the right coaching? Maybe

Does Miami have enough talent to beat Clemson twice in one year?

No.

So if you’re going to go all out vs Dabo, do you do it now or in the ACC title game? The latter.

Very unlikely this happened, but it’s a thought.

The Herb

Like I said the second time we play them.

I think that is what the person I spoke was thinking also. It may have been more implied than stated as a matter of fact.

AeroCane

The Pitt game will tell me a lot about the coaching staff, the admin and the team! We need to come out gangbusters and crush Pitt!
PS poor bubba bolden can’t play every position on O, D and ST! But he sure is the heart and soul!
It would be nice if he came back to play with James williams, hopefully A Williams, kiinchins and the rest of this recruiting class (assuming we keep it together).
Also, we need Donaldson back and to use rivers as our guards and our run game will improve!

MLALUMNI1970

Are we suppose to beat Pitt on Saturday, and what is the line?? Anyone going to the game?? Is it going to be televised??

MLALUMNI1970

I remember Hamburger Hill. Disgusting and brutal. Stupid, stupid war. Stupid President, who listened to the brass. And then came Pork Chop Hill. Another meat grinder. That leaves me with GO CANES
