Go canes!
Beat Duke!
Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

HerbieIbis

I say we upset Duke 31-21.

Harry Miller

Are we under dogs against Duke now?

I think we are still alive in our division.

If we could do all the things VA keeps saying, you know like thrown the ball, catch the ball, tackle, block, do not fumble the ball, stop getting stupid penalties and play good fundamentals we could actually still win our division. Wow that's a lot of things to have to get right. Never mind that's a lot to ask for. I must of been dreaming again. Sorry.

HerbieIbis

Well Harry, rest assured, they'll forget a couple of those which will either contribute to them getting beat or scrapping by.

HerbieIbis

On the recruiting trail, things are eerily similar to last year, we have not had one verbal since the first week of August. The only difference is we have 17 compared to about 9 last year.

Now Mr. Miller, respectfully speaking, we have been over this many, many times. I thought by now U would have learned a thing or two over the last 15-17 years? Situation FUBAR, correct Sir?

That's the confidence I am looking for.

After 1 cigar, 2 shots, 6 beers and a pause my man Terrance busts out the bold prediction. May The Force be with U!

Mighty? Who?

Harry Miller

Yes Mr. Popadak, I indeed agree with your assessment of what we have gone through for the last 17 years.
You may have missed a few key words in the 3rd line down. First word "If" fifth word "all", very important and "could" fifth line. You have chosen the perfect word to describe our team at this point.

With a heavy heart I believe Duke Will beat us by 10 points. I hope I am wrong, Here are my reason's.
Duke has a better QB. throws the ball better and a very dangerous runner, could run for a hundred yards, pass for 250 yards very good receiver's and a pretty good running back. decent defense.
Can't see why we are +8.

Just hope the three words show up.

HerbieIbis

Watch replay of first half of Va.Tech and when Van Dyke misses he misses bad. It's for sho ain't nobody going to intercept it. Accuracy ain't great. Throws very few balls out in front of WR's.
He's better when they play fast. Locks onto one receiver about 60% of the time.
Wr's still don't get alot of seperation. Mallory made some good catches with with a LB draped on him. Young caught a TD with a LB all over him. That kid went to my High school #4 Dax Hollifield.

roachcane77

Yeah. TVD is not very accurate. Receivers and backs are consistently reaching back or making circus catches, which precludes them from catching it in stride, and getting decent YAK.
I suppose Jake G just doesn't show out at practice, cause he seems like a good gameday QB who should be getting more reps on Saturdays. Adds a QB run factor to our offense as well. TVD is painfully slow of foot.
Go Canes! Beat Duke! 🙌🏼 🙌🏼 🙌🏼

orange 'n green in the vein

Tyler Van Dyke's completion percentages in his two years he's started games at UM;

CMP ATT CMP%
141 221 63.8 -2022
202 324 62.3 -2021

He's suffering more drops of catchable attempts as a group from his surrounding skill positions this year too, and he's in year one instead of year two in his offensive scheme in 2022 vs. 2021's season. So not sure where "accuracy" on his part is the biggest problem.

Increasing his pocket presence and ability to turn nothing there into a few yards on the ground with his feet to keep a defense honest, now there's the major spot for improvement with another year of college football development, on that, I can agree.

DallasTX Cane

If I’ve absorbed the lessons of the last 15 years correctly, the answer is always the backup QB. When he’s not, it’s the shiny hot shot high school QB. By the time we figure out he isn’t either, then well it’s got to be the coaches. Although to be fair, we’ve been blaming them also since about their 1st spring game.

MLALUMNI 1970

Which team are we rooting for tonight? Virginia or Georgia Tech??
Which one helps the Canes?

MLALUMNI 1970

Everybody, okay?? What’s the line tomorrow?? Since it’s at home, I will go with 86. He knows how to pick ‘em. GO CANES!❤️
I hope they close the upper deck, and consolidate everyone on the lower level.
Who owns Hard Rock? We should have free tickets, unless we are playing Florida State!
PACK THE HOUSE. Tired of looking at an empty stadium.
GO CANES!❤️

HerbieIbis

As long as we play in the ACC, don't look for to many packed houses that is until we become relevant again.

MLALUMNI 1970

Well, it’s almost show time, boys and girls. I must be a glutton for punishment. Worrying about our Canes, all the time.
12:30 tomorrow, right?? Is it on TV anywhere?? I ordered ACC NETWORK, but I don’t think that it is on there either. If any of you find out, please let me know.
Still up in the cold in Michigan, but will be back in Florida, mid-November. Getting old and really hate the cold. GO CANES, BEAT THEM ALL!!❤️

YooperCane

Man, penalties and stupid turnovers….WTF!! Keep preaching about cleaning this shit up but doing it? C’mon man, this is basics!!

Another Rooster fumble. Whhhyyyyyyyy??????

As long we lose to teams like Middle Tennessee FIFY

MLALUMNI 1970

Looks like we are in deep do do!

AeroCane

CGNC
Cause they didn’t listen to me when I said he shouldn’t be playing! Huge liability all year long! Fumbles and drops passes and is an average runner who potentially could break a long one but never does.

YooperCane

C’mon! This is Duke!! Why in the hell are we letting these chumps get the best of us. We can’t hold on to the damn ball!! We keep beating ourselves! Let’s go! Put these chumps away!!

YooperCane

We absolutely stink!

VA Cane


I appreciate your words Harry....football is not a complex game when you break it down...if you execute the fundamentals of the game...block tackle kick catch throw dont turn it over dont commit penalties head on swivel feet up breakdown position think focus and shut up and learn....the fancier plays and concepts come easy

I am coaching D at the number 1 team in the state....we have played the best team from NC and WVA....beat them both....we are 8 and 0....have scored 392 points given up 40.....thats about 49 to 5 a game....When you score like that and defend like that you win a lot of ball games...most of them. We crush people....I blitz run the 46 run a 4/4 3/5/3....all kinds of exotic stuff....point is I CAN because my kids are so fundamentally sound....in the things that matter....so disciplined in the fundamentals of the game and life....

we dont wear earrings or have hair hanging out of the helmet..thats for the offseason....we dont talk we practice my coveted HHH...hit hate hurt....we do we are rolling along....because we work at it...execute the fundamentals of football and life....you go far....

This has really gotten to be disappointing I still think it is far from complete...and there will be pain...but still hurts......more work to be done....TVD taking a beating

YooperCane

We are in deep shit!

TJL

Duke QB FOR Heisman

AeroCane

TJL
Nope
Garcia for heisman

YooperCane

Garcia!!

MLALUMNI 1970

I can’t take it!!

YooperCane

The D is something to be desired.

VA Cane


Ivey gets hurt....why...reach tackle stretched out instead of being aware what was going on hustling over there and getting a full wrap shoulder tackle...fundamental play...that we do not do..

..arm tackling all the time....I never see a guy square up put that shoulder in slide head past the guy and hurt the MFer.....we are arm tacklers...and when you do you whiff...guys go right through it...who in the hell teaches arm tackling....my guys drill the shit out of people....guess thats why we give up 5 a game....its painful to see such poor tackling

CGNC

TJL

Garcia for heisman

Posted by: AeroCane | October 22, 2022 at 07:35 PM

You sure? he just threw his second INT

AeroCane

Still gives us a better shot than TVD
However I don’t think it matters as our D with Steele is terrible and gattis is not a good oc. Mario effed up big time wasting Ruiz’s money

StillBasura

What’s hilarious is other teams still think it’s an accomplishment to beat Miami. It should be an expectation.

AeroCane

Basura
Correctamundo!

YooperCane

Miami football is dead.

StillBasura

Cristobal a Necromancer?

YooperCane

Mario and crew don’t have a fucking clue. With the star power of coaching staff, we still suck. I can’t believe we are struggling against Duke.

VA Cane


Time to drop down to Division II....wait....we just might get beat by one of them 6 turnovers...missed tackles late tackles arm tackles ......whew...back to work my ass...nobody working or trying...its like drawing UE benefits....or disabilty....we sure play disabled...Sad!

AeroCane

So if TVD sucks, and now Garcia, both 4 stars, is it them or our putrid coaching? If them, we got nothing. If the coaching, Mario better make changes! On defense as well!

Aero, you are too funny. 6 turnovers on the day and Jake has half of them. We have a ton of O-line injuries as well.

VA Cane

175 yards rushing vs Canes....run game is all about how tough are you how bad do you want it...not a lot I guess.....

Getting pushed around by a bunch of privileged snobs whose parents wipe their noses and well....you know.... from cradle to grave....beaten up by a school that plays basketball....a girls game...not men...boy that makes us...a powder puff team...a puppy bowl team....I really think I see people quitting...again...same stuff since Jan 2003...31 points off 7 turnovers....embarrassing!

CGNC

Posted by: AeroCane | October 22, 2022 at 08:34 PM

Quarterbacks get more credit for wins and losses. I believe it is on coaching because you take TVD who was pretty good with Lashlee and ACC Rookie of the Year, threw 4 TD's in the rain at the Doak and the first two to three games this year he does not look like himself. I mentioned before about the new QB coach and you said he has nothing to do with it. Oh as I type this, Jake just threw a Pick 6.

Everyone remember this is just a game and enjoy the rest of your weekend

We have a ton of O-line injuries on an O-line that was not elite to start with. It matters. Enjoy your day VA!

VA - it’s unbelievable- we just can’t get it right - maybe we should effing drop football since we obviously don’t know how to play it or coach it! So effing sad!

VA Cane


I really should not say that....their kids and QB really played hard and tough....they executed what I preach...and won decisively....easily...execution of fundamentals....confidence in the game plan and each other...and wanting to win...we do not have that now,. Boy...back to the drawing board....this is the worst game this year...and yes people are hurt...but wow we are going backwards!!!!
