Every school loses to Alabama, including Miami. Let’s move on and work hard to win the rest of the games. Then we can chart our own course, and get a decent bowl game. They say that if you have to lose a game, it’s best to lose very early. Our path has been charted. GO CANES

AeroCane

I love your positive outlook ML
However, with manny and lashlee (who chokes in every big game) it is almost guaranteed we lose at least 2 more times this year. And yes, I said at least.
Lashlee is a huge disappointment- how he didn’t use Mallory and arroyo 15 to 20 times in this game amazes me; and to run over and over and not throw more downfield passes is also beyond my comprehension; and yes, they had pressure, but we could of rolled our and thrown downfield, we could of played like we weren’t afraid to lose etc
In other words, sorry to tell you but manny and lashlee are NOT the guys for the job!

Puff…puff…pass

Please for the Love of God start Chaney over Harris. Please also tell Manny this is not Senior Day. Play the most talented player who puts you in the best position to win!!!!!!!!! I don't care if its a Senior, Junior, Sophomore, Freshman, Ball Boy, Ball Girl, or Trainer. Please throw to our TE's more than couple of times per game. These are some of my thoughts.

Play her, play her!

HerbieIbis

Canes 31-21. Still not sold on defense, especially our tackling in the secondary.
Lashlee will play to win this week, instead of like he did against Bama by playing not to lose, with that chicken shyt play calling.
Our philosophy should be pass first to set up the run. Throw the dam ball 50 times a game. One of those missing links are bound to get open sooner or later.

Old Skool

Hmmm a ball girl who puts you in the best position to win. I'm down with that. Hell I'd marry her

U all heard of the high school coach that always onsides kicks and never punts? Won 9 state championships in 18 years. I say we let him run the offense. Can’t get much worse and could be a lot more entertaining. lol

From SI:

Kevin Kelley has made a name for himself as the high school football coach who never punts and almost always attempts onside kicks. According to Kyle Deckelbaum of KATV in Little Rock, Ark., the longtime high school coach will take his out-of-the-box philosophy to FCS Presbyterian College as the next head coach of the Blue Hose.

Since taking over as head coach at Little Rock's Pulaski Academy 18 years ago, Kelley has proven his strategy works, winning nine state championships. Now, he'll have the opportunity to try to prove himself at the college level.

Much of his fourth down decision-making stems from the research of David Romer, an economics professor at Cal, who found that NFL teams should always go for it on fourth-and-4 or less. This type of thinking involving risk aversion vs. risk taking stuck with Kelley, who has said in many interviews that the numbers support his strategy, so there's no reason not to do it.
In terms of onside kicks, Kelley views it this way: if his team kicks it into the end zone, the other team gets the ball at the 20-yard-line. If they try the onside kick and don't recover, the other team gets the ball around their own 45-yard-line. He's willing to sacrifice those 25 yards because he knows his team will recover at least 25% of its onside kick attempts. These extra possessions—in addition to his aggressiveness on fourth down—have helped produced one of the most dominant offenses in high school football over the last two decades.

Harry Miller

Here's what i have been thinking. Are we really this bad and Alabama pretty good or is Alabama really really good and we are not as bad as it looked. If we could tackle just a little bit it could have been closer. If Alabama goes on and beats the hell out of everyone they play which looks like they just might do we may not be so bad after all.

We need some one to demonstrate the art of tackling to the defense sense they missed that class. Trumps fault, so they should get to take it over again. That would make a Hugh difference.
I think it is important to tackle in the game of football right VA, it's one of the fundamentals.

Next is who is going to learn to call the plays. Do we even have anyone that knows how to call a play, doesn't look like it to me.

Go Bama, beat the hell out of everyone you play and keep us from looking so bad.

Just a few thoughts and hoping we can learn something and start winning.

VA Cane

Nice thoughts Harry; we sure did miss the tackling class, boy it was bad. I feel like we have been tackling bad since the Fiesta Fiasco...even that game. Tackling is indeed a key fundamental of the game, and we do not do it.

I stress block tackle run catch kick stance throw...and most importantly THINK...about how you do each of these... where you are and what you do on the field. We do not think...and these kids are not dumb...they do not listen and even more important we do not coach with consequences...you have to get in the ear of people and sometimes the rear end. In todays game you have to execute these fundamentals. We are still coaching like somebodies Mommy...kinder gentler...and still run the same lame 20 year old sequence...run run pass punt...over and over.

I think Bama is good...as all Saban teams are...cause they fear not the old man...but failure...they fear losing he has made it that way. Thats good on the field...and even better in life.

Harry I hope your little man is doing well...I now have a 6 month old granddaughter named Elizabeth...named after my mom wifes mom and wife..all Elizabeths...we call her Ellie Ray...her middle name. Its funny...she is kinda partial to old grand dad...laughing and smiling whenever she sees me...wants me to hold her...lifes beautiful folks!

Not a Cowboy fan at all...but a huge DAK fan...that man is such a great person and has character and class;it was really nice to see him play well last night...class guy! So opposite of Jerry and Zeke...losers idiots...well they are what comes out the south end of a dog walking north!

VA Cane

Harry I enjoyed the article our Fearless Leader wrote about you, and was so glad you two got to spend some time together. You both are fine men, and I respect the way you both live; fine examples of good American people...we got a lot of them on here.

I pray for your family each day Harry and always want the best for you!

God Bless you!

Folks I know some people want to put 9/11 in the rear mirror; I feel so bad for the lives lost. We may not do so many things perfect in this country...but it is still the land of the free and the home of the brave...and I would NEVER live anywhere else...EVER!

I have heard of him years ago actually. It will be interesting to see how moving up a level of talent skimming and different developmental windows on players on the field affects the averages on the strategy. In college the recovery rates for onside kicks hover closer to the 10% success rate, so he's going to lose half those extra possessions and double or more the loss of field yards to defend with on the scoreboard which isn't going to help unless he knows something the rest of the slaves to tradition don't on the sidelines. To me, the more convincing argument for this strategy comes into play when you lay out the fact that each fourth down conversion a team makes in a football game is on average worth about 2.5 points per successful conversion on average.

But then again, Norvell probably lost the game on Sunday by going for it on fourth down in his own territory in the third quarter which lead to the quick touchdown score after a turnover on downs putting them behind 18 points with about that many minutes left on the clock, so field position still is a factor in victory no matter what a math nerd tells you numbers support that's contrary to that perception.

AeroCane

Orange
Agreed
But I think the point is, lashlee play calls like a freaking wimp in all big games. No guts at all and a terrible game plan. I’d rather lose playing fast and aggressive, than the way we lost.
Obviously it’s manny, but I think it falls on lashlee and king. I think king is highly overrated - as a passer he is slow on his feet thinking of his progressions etc
Personally if I can’t get manny and lashlee fired, I’d like to put Garcia back there and have him sling it around to guys like Mallory, arroyo, X, key’shawn, and the freshmen

Smells like the Orange Bowl up in here?

Yooper, you won the UM tumbler from SarasotaCane. Please send me your real name, phone and email address to tpopadak@hanoverbuilds.com

HerbieIbis

Lashlee wants to have a running game so bad he can't stand it. It's like by god we are going to run it no matter if we keep running into a brick wall. He's got that 50% problem of run pass that is history. Just watch the pros,they run it 20 maybe 25 times a game and throw it 40. If they get behind by 10 or more points in the first qt. they run it less than 20 times a game.
Lash is thinking of by gone days.
Everybody we play jams the box up, to make us beat them passing but we keep trying to wedge out 2 yards.

1. Straight facts.

2. Like banging your head against the wall over and over and over again and expecting different results. No creativity, misdirection, draws, sweeps, traps, no two TEs, overloaded line, just straight ahead run plays right into the box between the tackles.

We would be better off throwing safe, quick swing passes to backs running at full speed in space than running into the line over and over just out to be stubborn.

Harry Miller

Va. the little man may be moving in with me very soon. His Dad is a crank head and is cheating on my
Granddaughter so she is finally moving out with my new 4 month old great grand daughter. You never know what tomorrow brings. Happy For you and your new one.

I am really looking forward to the game tomorrow, hoping that I see a different UM team. Looking for a 34 to 17 win. If we lose this game stick a fork in me I'll be done. I

VA Cane

Harry so sorry to hear that;that young man needs a great man to guide him; no doubt if he is with you he will have that great man. I pray for your granddaughter and those young ones; I have no doubt
they will be in the right place with you!!

We need to get the bus out of the ditch today; stop the run run pass punt and open it up; play the future...play the kids who want to go out there and compete not cowards who want to cover up and run!

God bless America; never forget the people on those flights, the police officers, firemen, first responders who selflessly were there willing to die so we might live as Americans.

Never fail to pass on the truth of what really happened; Islamic terrorists attacked our nation...live and speak the truth. Work together as Americans to assure it will never happen again on our watch!

God bless!

Get your ass kicked by four plus scores, and it's players coming up short not the play calling usually.

Play calling will cost you a close game, substandard execution will lose you a blowout every time. Play calling faults made sure Notre Dame escaped with a win, execution faults lost UM's game before halftime in their respective openers.

AeroCane

Executing crap or not executing crap - doesn’t matter
Lashlee sucks!
Time to get cristobol

AeroCane

To clarify
Cristobol for manny not lashlee LOL

AeroCane

I don’t know if Oregon will beat OSU, but Mario has th m playing well!
Canes with manny and lashlee would be down about 17-3 at this time lol

VA Cane

Cristobol has them playing well......phantom holding call...19 never held...when does OSU not get a break...always...home cooking...Ducks playing tough game...

Harry Miller

A lot of recruits going to be at the game. Miami better be ready to play. APP St can move the ball.
They have good receivers with speed. A good QB that can get the ball to them. We need to put pressure on there QB.. He is not good when under pressure. We need to sack him 4 or 5 times. If we do this we can win, if not who knows.
We need to stop the run, they have a good RB. We will have to tackle better and stop the run better then last week. They have a lot of speed.
I am sure we will start Cam Harris. If he doesn't produce they need to replace him. Miami 34 to 17.

VA Cane


ASU will be good I think HM. They have a rep for being tough playing tough...our saving grace...maybe...home game...I am concerned...that ass kicking last week may not have sunk in...message is we are not good played poorly are lazy do not execute basics and are coached poorly...I smell what The Rock is cooking and it aint good


Mario got them Ducks playing their WRs and backs block like hell...on 3 TDs the pulling lineman just ran to the end zone...no one to block...Mario is young and smart..using speed as a weapon..I like it!

AeroCane

Is fox the big ten network? Because these announcers are clearly rooting for OSU and kissing Ryan days butt all day!

86Cane

One of the dweebs/shills at ESPN had OSU as his "LOCK" of the day and they were favored by 14.5 points and they are losing by 7 in the fourth.by 14 points. Brilliant!

Another had ND over Toledo as his "LOCK of the day and they were favored by 17 and the score is 7-6 in second quarter.

VA Cane

No doubt...it is the Big 10 network...they advertise it...Oregon is lucky...OSU is great...dont you know that guys?....Oregon has been very impressive...great game to watch!!!

VA Cane

Notice...the guy who caught the short pass for the last Oregon first down...transferred from Miami...hmmm...Mario is 51...got a long time to coach...just signed big extension...was a great candidate dark horse for UM...bet you money he aint looking home to coach in SoFL anytime soon...can you blame him...hes got unlimited $, now a huge win on a big stage...if you are a fast FL DB, WR, good lineman or multi threat QB...where you want to play...Northwest here I come...IJS

toledocane

OSU losing makes me as happy as Miami winning

toledocane

Only thing better would be if Toledo knocked off ND... UT leading 16-14 in the 3rd!

Is there any way to watch the Notre Dame game without the Peacock streaming service?
