What time is it?

It's Crappy Bowl Game time!

Go Canes!

58 Straight

SOME PREDICTIONS FROM THE "EXPERTS":

Give me the Cowboys to win and cover the small spread. The combination of their dynamic offense and attacking defense will be too much for the Hurricanes, who will be a little hungover from the North Carolina game, to overcome. Sanders will top the 300-yard mark, one of the running backs will top the century mark, and the Canes will head to the offseason on a sour note.

Pick: Oklahoma State (-2.5) | Oklahoma State 42, Miami 27

Oklahoma State vs. Miami: Betting odds, spread and lines
Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated at 10:15 a.m. ET.

Money line: Miami -115 (bet $115 to win $100) | Oklahoma State -105 (bet $105 to win $100)
Against the spread/ATS: Miami -1 (-110) | Oklahoma State +1 (-110)
Over/Under: 61.5 (O: -110 | U: -110)

Oklahoma State vs. Miami: Three things to know:

After getting off a 4-0 start and somewhat flirting with early-season Big XII Championship contention, Oklahoma State lost 41-34 to Texas on Halloween then alternated between wins and losses for the rest of the regular season. The Cowboys ended their season on a high note, bulldozing the Baylor Bears 42-3 as 6-point road favorites Dec. 12.

When looking at Miami’s overall record, the 2020 campaign is nothing to be disappointed in. The Hurricanes getting rolled 42-17 by Clemson (Oct. 10) and 62-26 by North Carolina in the final game of the season were definitely disappointing for Miami.

Since Mike Gundy took over the OK State program in 2005, the Cowboys are 9-5 in bowl games and have covered the spread in their last four bowl games. This is Manny Diaz’s second season in charge of the Miami football program and the Hurricanes were shutout 14-0 in last year’s Independence Bowl by Louisiana Tech.

GIMME OKLAHOMA STATE (-105) for 1.5 units.

Over/Under (O/U):

I “LEAN” OVER 61.5 (-110) for only a half-unit because it’s a little high in my opinion; however, the market is hitting the Over and I’d rather follow the money than fade it. According to Pregame.com, over 85% of the money wagered has been on the Over, which has steamed it up from the 59.5-opener to the current price.

Hopefully they don’t lay another big turd on the field tonight. I don’t want to hear the lip service, I want to see results tonight. I’m still bitter from the NC game and want to see some damn effort in this game. It pisses me off that NC is playing in our house in the Orange Bowl where we should have be playing, it’s a kick in the damn nuts while we play in some bull shit bowl game. I really hope that Manny and co have this team prepared and ready to play some football, Go Canes!

AeroCane

Wow
I wish we had DNo back! Baker is effing clueless as a coordinator and obviously rumph is a clueless loser as well (as a coach only)

YooperCane

Alright, hopefully that was an anomaly by the D, if not...

YooperCane

Aero, yep

The Herb

No pass rush and soft zone. Already making a mediocre qb looking like an all american. 75 yards passing right off the bat.

YooperCane

Baker better wake the F up in this series.

THE MAN

How hard is it as an athlete playing DB to stay "relatively" close to your WR? I just don't understand how guys are always wide open against Miami's D and no one fixes it between the players and coaches. Mind blowing!

Killerbeez41

Oh boy!!! Hopefully this isn't a here we go again situation. Very vanilla on D that drive. I'm thinking he was "feeling" out the offense (Shrug).

AS IF!

OSU: Scores a TD on first drive.

UM: Punts on first drive.

#Prepared

HerbieIbis

Who is number 4 because the dude was lost and then a half azz tackle attempt.
If this is going to be like this, it's going to be a long night.

Apparently it is pretty hard to stay close. Not sure who #4 was covering other than air? It certainly was not the opposing WR.

AeroCane

Herb - keontra smith - a striker covering their wr deep
Great planning by the effing loser baker!
Go OSU
Maybe manny will have to fire him!

Fire Manny

Is too early to call it?

YooperCane

Baker absolutely sucks!

YooperCane

If Manny doesn’t step in we are doomed.

58 Straight

OSU 14 - UM 0

#Prepared

TJL

Corey Gaynor got blown up 5 yards deep on the 1st series - make #55 a center

TJL

not 1 but 2 plays!

YooperCane

We are in a big hole right off the bat. What the phuck are these coaches gonna do? Any adjustments coming before the half? Same ol shit, Baker is trash.

Killerbeez41

According to Manny, he is on the defensive side of the practice field more than anywhere else. So Manny knows exactly the plan and is either alert of the issue or is allowing this to happen.

THE MAN

New Miami D Coordinator at first defensive meeting:

Ok, guys when we are covering a WR we stay on his hip so we make it difficult to catch the ball and also whoever has the ball on offense tackle him to the ground as quickly as possible.

Miami defensive players: That's it? Ok!

Miami top 10 defense!

AeroCane

I know manny is not going anywhere but what a bad coach he is
You watch, FSU with norvell will be beating us in 2 years with no problems if manny and Blake are still here
This year was the aberration - last year will be our norm with these really bad coaches
I feel bad for the recruits who fell fir their BS
PS feely is welcome to go back to temple anytime he wants as our weight training still has a lot to be desired

AeroCane

Can we all of a sudden claim COVID issues and just go home? Lol

MLALUMNI1970

Just don’t understand it. How can we be so bad, so often?

YooperCane

According to Manny, these guys were prepared and ready for the challenge at hand... bullshit! I absolutely love the bullshit talk and lip service! They must think we are some stupid fans. We can’t get shit going...

YooperCane

Manny deserves a Grammy for that tirade! 😂

YooperCane

Fire that mutha phucker Baker!!

OSU 21 - UM 0

Even the TV announcer just said" "Miami is not prepared for any of this." LMAO

VfB_Cane

If our new year's resolution is to not post negative stuff on this blog, then Canespace will not see a lot of traffic in the foreseeable future.

Shirley must be Trump's fault?

The Herb

Jennings is effing a waste at LB. This is like taking candy from a baby.
I mean these wr's are so open u would think they had covid.

AeroCane

Yooper
As I said- manny sucks but isn’t going anywhere cause Blake James is a horrible AD
As I said - this year is the aberration and 2019 is the norm with manny

YooperCane

Sorry spacers, I call it like i see it. Miami is absolutely trash due to your incompetent D coach. I will absolutely eat crow if otherwise. This team is totally unprepared. If they don’t claw back and show some grit to win then it’s all on the coaches. How can we play like basura and expect to win, Manny will have some bullshit speech as to how they were the better team. Tired of the phuckin same ol excuses. We deserve better and so do the players and fans.

nemo2020

Our defense must think that we're playing in the Swiss Cheeze-It Bowl.

YooperCane

I can’t believe with all the talent we have and coming on board that we play like an average high school football team. These coaches are either way above their heads or we are just an average team. Manny seems lost at every game and doesn’t have an answer and that bothers me. Great coaches find a way adjust and find a way to win. We seem to find a way to loose and have an excuse to why what lost.

YooperCane

Nemo, there is more holes in cheese than the D has! 😂

The Herb

We haven't got one LBer worth a dam, not one.
Now King is gone for the game.
Wouldn't have happened had Clarke not lassoed the LBer.

YooperCane

Phuck, we didn’t need that! N’ Koski got to get it done!

YooperCane

We got to rally around N’Kosi! Get it done boy!

YooperCane

Damn it

YooperCane

Can we have some serious adjustments in the second half?

YooperCane

Damn it Wiggins!

YooperCane

2 time outs? And you run the clock?

HerbieIbis

I'd give Pope and Wiggins both their walking papers. Space takers.

YooperCane

What a phuckin bunch of shit!

YooperCane

You have to put a fire underneath their asses. We absolutely stink so far. Do we some out in the second half and take this game over or do we lay down?
