Esteban’s Break it Down: Miami vs. UNC

Welcome to the text edition of Break It Down. This week I’ll be breaking down The U’s matchup against the North Carolina Tar Heels.  So let’s get right into things.

Why The U Wins

The offense, led by Lamar Miller, seems to have hit its stride. Miller has gashed teams and has allowed the QB to pick his spots while playing efficiently and mistake free. With weapons on the outside like Allen Hurns to compliment Miller, the offense has been balanced leading to greater big play potential.  Even against a strong Carolina defense I think the ‘Canes should be able to put up at least 24 points.

Why The U Needs to be Careful

I’m going with the obvious…the defense. Weak scheme, injuries hurting depth or just a lack of talent, no matter the reason, the Hurricanes defense has made 4 of the 5 starting QBs its faced to look like they were all-conference players.  I expect that to continue this week. Brynn Renner is a solid QB coached by a smart OC in John Shoop. I think they take advantage of the soft coverage they see this week and take the short completions available and try to chew up clock while on their way to the endzone. It might be another week of hoping the redzone defense can force field goals instead of giving up touchdowns.  One positive, at least the defense won’t have to defend the read option.

Key Individual Matchup

I’m going with ‘Canes Left Offensive Tackle Brandon Washington vs. UNC’s Right Defensive End Quintin Coples. Washington has been solid at tackle but not the same player he was at guard. He’ll need to take his game up a notch this week if he’s going to meet the challenge of blocking Coples 1 on 1. Coples is projected as a top 5 player for next year’s NFL draft. He’s big, strong and very athletic – basically the total package in the Mario Williams mold. If Washington can protect Jacory’s blind side with minimal help that will go a long way in securing a victory for the ‘Canes.

Player of the Game

I’m going with Sean Spence. I think the defense as a whole struggles again this week, but have a feeling it gets a TD put on the board courtesy of Spence. Add to that, I predict he picks up about 10 tackles while taking it as his personal duty to make sure Giovanni Bernard doesn’t give UNC the balanced attack it usually has.

Don’t forget to listen to Hurricane Alley and to catch me on twitter at esteban2go.

    Good job Este as usual.

    The more I think about those Raising Canes videos, the more I have to appreciate this coaching staff. I cant think of another program that has this kind of reality show-like, in-depth coverage of a athletic program.

    Once again, Miami is becoming a trend-setter instead of just adopting an old-school mindset and going with the flow. The future of athletics at Miami is very bright, and I haven’t felt this enthusiastic in a long time.

    Good time are on horizon.

    Brynn Renner is a solid QB coached by a smart OC in John Shoop.

    Este, if this is the same OC from last season, they’re going to drop 30….and Renner will look all-conference.

    Dayton- You nailed it, The D is what it is, just hope for sloooow improvement

    Shwarma5- He is a rock star. Golden is “The real deal” in every aspect of the game. He really seems to see the future as well as the present, and attack them equally. I feel lucky that he’s here and very optimistic as to what the future holdsfor the CANE nation. The access and passion he is allowing to show will pay dividends.

    >>>>>>>>>

    The blame rests on ONE place and one place alone.

    Tim Walton had an even worse roster and still figured out how to handle the lower tier school.

    Watch the film from Temple and you’ll the same shyt with his beloved 5th year seniors….

    It doesn’t matter if Chambers is back or Vernon. It’s fundamentally flawed. The design itself is half-baked.

    Shoop is a sharp OC so expect them to walk up and down the field yet again.

    Esteban

    October 14, 2011

    CaneInKY, i definitely agree. it’s not going to be transformed into a top notch defense tomorrow no matter the style/scheme/luck.

    Hopefully Vernon comes back and they allow him to really get after it. He could be the guy who provides that pass rush and he’ll automatically be our best run stuff up there as well. One special player can make a big difference. Hopefully Vernon comes in without rust next week.

    Goldens doing a great job imo with a lot.. i have a feeling the wins will come.

    Like ppl have said we could be 5-0. Suspension bowl in gm 1. K St we were 2 yards away. And at Va Suck we were a 4th and 1 away. Forgetting the pick 6 @ maryland and that gm satys 26-24.. combined pts lost by in 3 gms is 9 pts.

    I think we beat UNC, but lose to GT.. just dont have the horses to play defense with them.

    New raising canes vid was awesome.. glad to see they were just as upset as i was. In the past im not sure if that was the case.

    Goldens doing a great job imo with a lot.. i have a feeling the wins will come.

    Like ppl have said we could be 5-0. Suspension bowl in gm 1. K St we were 2 yards away. And at Va Suck we were a 4th and 1 away. Forgetting the pick 6 @ maryland and that gm satys 26-24.. combined pts lost by in 3 gms is 9 pts.

    I think we beat UNC, but lose to GT.. just dont have the horses to play defense with them.

    I like to try and stay optimistic
    —————————————————-

    Staying optimistic = having perspective and seeing the big picture.

    Not a lot of people can see that far ahead.

    >>>>>>>>>

    Dayton, you mean like 4 yours of NO’d ahead? Well, we can see that from his beloved “5th year senior class at Temple”.

    Same shyt as we’ve seen this year.

    Golden overall though is right on the money.

    Everyone will have the last two years games as proof positive of how to shut em down.

    If NO’d reverts to Bill Young or more accurately Tim Walton form, what would his excuse be??

    And what do you do if you’re Golden??

    I think I’ll trust Golden on his decision of who runs the defense, not the fans.

    The fans didnt see anything wrong with the number of things that Randy was doing, so forgive me if I take anybody’s opinion with a grain of salt. I see the big picture, and there are a lot of things wrong. Pinning it on one person is just foolish.

    I see the defense in position to make the play, but then not make them. Its mostly just been guys not doing what they’re supposed to do, assignment football 101. Easy concept.

    Last two HCs have run this program into the mud and now we’re complaining about a team that is actually showing some fight and resilience for the first time in a long time. This coaching staff is the best thing that has happened to us in years and I’m gonna enjoy the ride while others subtlety harp on the fact that their boy is no longer the coach here.

    Speaking for myself, My displeasure with the defense has nothing to do with Randy not being in town. 5 games in and I don’t like what I see. We don’t all have to agree on everything and see things in the same light.

    I think that Al Golden will get things headed in the right direction, but he needs to tighten up things quickly on the defensive side of the ball. No matter who the players are I am not fond of seeing a LB 15 yards down field trying to cover a slot receiver. If it has been working then I wouldn’t complain, but it hasn’t and I am just voicing my displeasure.

    I am not ready to run coach D out of town, but I do think that he could be a little more flexible in his scheme givin the players he inherited. Sort of like how Brock Berlin was a vastly different QB when he was in the gun.

    One thing you mos def can see in that video is that they care! They want to win badly and like Golden said invested their souls in that game. That leads me to believe our problems are a combination of lack of talent on defense as well as the play calling stuff in terms of the passive nature of the defense in playing bend but don’t break. Effort and want too though can’t be questioned. Those kids want it, just not good enough on that side of the ball. 🙁

    I like al goldie but it’s starting to remind me of the mayweather vs pacquiao discussion. goldie comes in and starts identifying areas on the team that needed to be fixed, he pointed to conditioning as the reason behind this team losing most if not all the games last year in the 4th quarter. He’s been constantly talking about the conditioning is better on the team, that may be so, but the Truth still remains, all the games lost this year were guss what, in the 4th quarter.

    Than he’s talking about guys having selfish penalties and he threw ray ray armstrongs p.i. call into that group, lol, wth is he talking about, had ray ray not redirected that receiver, that more than likely would’ve been a touchdown, i can see if he said the next play where they gave up the touchdown, ray ray came up to make the big hit.

    Notice how no one is giving jedd fisch credit for showing what difference a real oc makes in a qb’s life, imagine j12 having jedd fisch as the oc from day 1, he’d have blown past ken dorsey’s stats last year. With j12 behind center, you always feel like you got a chance to win.

    Thats fair.

    I just want people to realize that these assessments of why the defense is playing badly are wrong. These guys are being put into positions to make plays and are not making them. Some guys are not doing their jobs.

    But I agree that coach D should be a little more aggressive. Hard to do that when you are so bad in the back end of the defense.

    moneyCane, it just goes back to the difference in having a veteran d-co and a young possibly up & coming d-co. lovett came in and learned what the players knew and put his defensive scheme basically in that same language to help speed up the learning process. If you’re a coordinator(offensive/defensive) and your players/starters don’t know where to line-up, that coordinator needs to find a way ASAP to get that fixed with no excuses. Confused players don’t make plays more often than not, Advantage: opposing offenses. Next, the reason you see alot of linebackers 15 yards down field, often times, we don’t substitute properly so opposing oc’s are always rotating whoever they want in because they spot real quickly that coach do noff basically stays with base personel Advantage: opposing offenses. Next, this defensive scheme is a read & react scheme which automatically makes your over-all defense a step slower: Advantage opposing offenses.

    Than when the d-co calls for press man, as has been pointed out before, there is no safety over the top help which leaves me to believe the d-co is real confused, because if you’re basically saying to the people/media that the defense we’er often running is because guys don’t have much experience and are 1st time starters/converted db’s and all the other excuses that he can come up with, than why is it, that when he does call for press man, he calls it with no safeties over the top, this means he’s(the d-co) clearly confused. So it’s some real contradiciton talk going on with coach do noffin and reality!

    You’re not going to tell me that PRAIRE VIEW A&M has more talent than UM dude. uh uh-no way-not happening-get real!!

    If it was the inexperience of the players and the suspensions, with the injuries and the youth then these guys would get better and better from week to week.

    There is NO PROGRESS AT ALL!. In fact, we look worse and worse each week to me!

    No excuses. He sucks. Fly the banner!!!!!!

    I made a mistake and gave Whipple a chance thinking he would change his ways when in the back of my mind i knew he wouldnt.

    But like i said before, AT LEAST he showed us some signs of hope.

    5 games in and dont know d frio hasn’t shown us jack shat.

    Please show me game footage of guys being put in places to make plays and not making them and i’ll show you more where they have no chance to make a play.

    Like cal said, why the hel do you have Spence trying to blow up a 300 lb guy? Thats not his game and he has done just fine without it.

    ——————————————-

    I’ve seen those videos months ago man, you guys are way late on that front.

    And in that BCC game, there were numerous times where there was a guy near the flat area and he failed to make the play. And I’m not including screen passes, because we broke most of those up.

    For example, first flat pass of the game was the result of no one accounting for the TE across the formation once the play starts, most likely Spence’s responsibility. The RB even went the wrong way on the PA fake. Another good one is on the 2nd quarter, another TE slips across the formation and catches a pass for like 3 yards. Both Futch and JoJo were near him, with JoJo having a perfect angle at him.

    The zone read plays are a result of guys not doing what they’re supposed to do. Andrew Smith has caused a lot of big plays because he doesn’t stay outside or take the QB when its an option. Bg pointed out one time in particular in the Va Tech game when two LBs had a shot at Thomas and both missed.

    I wont doubt that some of these calls are very passive, but they’ve had to dial down the playbook to basic stuff. I want to see more adjustments by coach D too, but if guys aren’t getting the simple stuff than its pretty hard to do.

    Had to watch the Vpi game again. The d-line and lnebackers were in position to succeed on a lot of plays. They made some great plays in that game. The defensive backfield is just terrible but that run as fast as you can to the endzone as soon as the ball is hiked style will get us eaten up with bubble screens, read options, hb flares-wheels, comebacks, etc….. Were screwed.
    ———————————————

    I told you man, its like that every game.

    I’m not saying the front seven is perfect, but they are in position to make a play a large portion of the time, they just dont make it. Whether thats a product of reverting back to their old ways or being confused by the scheme, IDK.

    Better get used to the secondary being that bad, the cavalry isn’t coming this season. I dont like the fact that they play a million miles off either. They might get a little better, but not that much. How much better can you get when a former Wake Forest nickelback is starting? Thats nowhere near Miami-level talent.

    Well u should have warned us it was gonna look like coach holler alot didn’t know what the hell he was doing
    ————————————————-

    LOL. Nice one.

    I remember seeing that NIU game on youtube back in like May or something.

    If you really examine the talent that Golden worked with at Temple, he had a lot of dudes who were not good athletes at all. Dudes that just look awkward moving around in space. I’d imagine thats why they played so much zone and backed the DBs off the WRs.

    I posted a video of them in training camp yesterday, which spotlighted the secondary going through drills. Paul Williams had them going through man-to-man press drills, and some of them didn’t look too hot (not great athletes), while others looked pretty good. With better athletes to work with now, I’d expect to see our future corners up a lot closer to the WRs (I should say I hope to see it).

    Watching the game should make people realize how inept nipple was as an oc, especially in the redzone, he only wish he could call a play in that stage of the game like jedd did with the dorsett to miller play. jedd has perfect feel for the game and momentum, he schooled bud foster. Already jedd fisch 1 bud foster 0. That last drive is where coach do noffin does this defense no good, if you’re going to be a zone defense, the man covering short in the zone does not need to drop that far and that needs to be stressed, that’s why those flat routes continue to be open. coach do noff needs to coordinate that between the short drop man for him to take away the flats, and if they try and that’ll force them to have to try and squeeze the pass in behind the short drop man, and if do noff coordinates that with the timing of the d-line getting pressure it could actually help create turn-overs.

    I’ll tell you what though, 3g is the real deal, he was getting pressure from time to time, got what seems like an overlooked sack because the o-lineman trucked marcus robinson, but he saw spence coming and all of a sudden the field tackled em. 3g got several nice hits in on logan thomas, you’ll never have to question 3g’s effort out there on that field. He made some nice tackles in the backfield and is just getting better seems like every game, goign to be interesting to see where they line up vernon when he comes back. If we have a d-line next year of vernon, chick, forston & porter, that’s a strong front 4 in any league!

    Not as good as I pictured it.

    They need to add bacon and serve it on a potato roll so you have the sweetness to offset the salty.

    Smh, Denny’s… Go big or go home!

    Dont insult that beautiful work of art by Denny’s, thats un-American.

    But that is a damn good suggestion. I think I’m gonna try that. That and the doughnut burger.

    I am likely making BBQ chicken pizza for GA Tech. Recipe is here on the site. BBQ chicken, maple bacon, two kinds of cheese, made on a pizza stone.

    It is usually gone before the tailgate is set up!

    If it is a nooner, I am thinking homemade egg and bacon breakfast sandwiches with a bacon hashbrown side dish.

    2-3 or not, we still draw! The Miami Effect…

    Recruits flocking to UNC-Miami

    Adam Powell
    TarHeelIllustrated.com

    North Carolina’s ACC Coastal division showdown with Miami Saturday is going to draw not only the attention of college football fans throughout the region, but also an impressive number of high school recruiting targets in the 2012 and 2013 classes.

    Lafayette (La.) athlete Kevin Fouquier is one of three official visitors North Carolina is expecting over the weekend
    Tar Heel Illustrated spoke with a source familiar with the situation Friday morning and got multiple details about the weekend.

    Right now we’re hearing that the Tar Heels could be in store for a huge list of players.

    “There’s a long list,” said our source. “There’s probably about 70 guys. It’s going to be big.”

    On Friday a couple of official visitors—Malik Simmons of Lehigh Acres (Fla.) and Kevin Fouquier of Lafayette (La.)—made their way to Chapel Hill.

    We were told that upon arrival at UNC, Simmons and Fouquier were going to take tours of the campus buildings, the Loudermilk Center for Excellence inside the Blue Zone of Kenan Stadium, and the dorm rooms.

    We were also told that Simmons and Fouquier are going to be taking in the ‘Late Night with Roy’ event in the Smith Center Friday evening, and that UNC head basketball coach Roy Williams had requested they arrive at the arena early enough to he could personally talk to each of them.

    UNC pledge Terrance Knox of Concord (N.C.) is also making his official visit this weekend, but he won’t be in town until late Friday night because of his high school team’s game.

    Knox is one of two tight ends committed to the Tar Heels. The other, Justin Meredith of Anderson (S.C.), is making a trip to Chapel Hill for the UNC-Miami game, but it’s not going to be his official visit. That will come after his senior season.

    Knox and Meredith are just two of the expected commitments, as guys such as Bryce Kennedy, Phillip Williamson, and J.J. Patterson, Kedrick Davis, and Damien Washington, among others, are all expected to return to Kenan Stadium.

    “A whole bunch of the commitments (are coming),” said our source.

    We have also learned that two of the program’s top uncommitted targets at a position of major need are both expected to be in town.

    Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley, arguably the top two running backs in North Carolina, have become friends over the past few months, and they’ll both be in attendance when the Hurricanes and Tar Heels kick off.

    We hear that Marshall is going to be accompanied by his younger brother, Marcus.

    Another top uncommitted 2012 prospect expected to be in town is Alex McCalister of Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth.

    In addition, there’s a substantial number of 2013 prospects expected in, including Connor Mitch and brothers Jordan and Justin Fieulleteau, all of Raleigh’s Wakefield High, Marquez North from Charlotte Mallard Creek, and many others.

    Stay tuned on Saturday for a full list of all the recruiting visitors, as well as photo galleries, right here at Tar Heel Illustrated.

    Imagine what recruiting is gonna be like for the recruiting wizards on here once Golden starts turning this thing around. And with all the access to the team that we are getting now, this program is gonna blow up.

    Dont know if the man will win a natty here, but we will at least be in position to win one.

    I told you guys, having Golden and Larranga here is the best thing that has happened to the athletic department in a long time. We just gotta have patience.

A real oc in motion, duke jonhson is locked in as well as all the offensive recruits, cause seeing an offense like this and knowing you can play it, jedd will have his pick of the litter with this offense, they should redshirt #61 for next year.

    Probably the best half of offensive football we have seen from this team all year.

    In fact only thing that didn’t go well was getting Miller established as he only has 8 for 12. Going wide is not working on UNC in the first half. Every other week that has meant trouble.

    That’s 10 TDs and NO INTS in the last 12 quarters for J12. Still a lot of game left. What I anticipate will happen now is teams are seeing they can’t dare us to beat them with J12 because he CAN! So now they’ll come OUT the box and the running game should get going 2nd half. This isn’t a WHIP team where you throw guys in the box and you KNOW J12 is going to make a mistake. Big, Big, Cudos to Jedd Fisch! He’s a KEEPER!

    Hurns still owes TBenj big time for that whiff

    moneycane, was thinking the same thing .. saw Seantrel miss, Chase Ford .. err, well, that’s a given that he will – probably the least aggressive TE I’ve ever seen in my life

    MRob actually forcing the play to move to the outside was impressive when it was down near the goal line

    PhillyCane, ah, you mean what seems to be a Golden led team as opposed to a “Duke is a tough place to play” & “look, there’s a banner flying over the stadium with mean words toward our coach that makes us all have sad faces before the game” team?

    lol, at this rate, that 80 td record is in jeopardy, here’s to #62 getting 4 more in the second half. luv jedd fisch, that #12 stuck tb3 cause hurns not up yet(12:30 games to early for him) so #12 out there celebrating, very next play call, let’s bomb his azz, although j12 threw the fade, had he laid it out there streeter would’ve cooked that dude. jedd was basically like setle down #12, all our wide receivers are going to run a train on you all game. jedd fisch, is an assassin, just good to have that back at oc again, been a long time coming!

    Great first half and great game plan.

    There was an opportunity for the D to assert itself on NC’s last drive and they missed it.

    If this goes south don’t discount the importance of that last TD. We’re really still not stopping people. This is the bizarro world inverse of last years game against NC.

    Having said that, if the offense only clicks half as well in the second half as the first we should still win.

    Note to coach NoD: please dont start with that halfass prevent shyte you’ve been running all year ’till late in the game and us up by several scores

    Coach NoD only marginally better, but AG should bitch slap him on the way to the lockeroom and while telling him he’s got to get a clue (end of first half, end of game).

    Spence saved coach NoD from a public execution. lol

    Great crazy win, though.

    Great win for the Canes today. Jacory now has 12 tds and only 3 picks for the season and the D may be what it is, but they held several times and came through at the end.

    Spence is a beast and Perryman will be. Streeter has arrived and I can’t wait to see where Benjamin gets drafted. He is playing lights out this season.

    Coaching, coaching, coaching. I have no doubt this same team loses this game had last year’s staff been here.

    Sorry pb, great win, but the D did not come through in the end. Spence did. The rest of the D looked sloppy and unorganized. I’m watching those last two drives again and they’re a mess. It’s a great win and I’m happy, but just telling it like I see it.

    Cx3 if you are referring to me you are way off the mark! My heart went to stomach with that kick and I just could not believe we might lose a heartbreaker again. We could not lose this one because this team would be lost if we did.

    Glad we won but that defense is just bad and that second half golden was out coached.

    Team is still showing fight, great sign for the rest of the season.

    When is the last time we saw our team do this for more than 1 or 2 quarters? We’ve seen them do it for two games.

    To say Jacory played lights out would be an understatement. Missed Streeter downfield a couple of times, but otherwise played amazing. Halftime is never a good thing when your offense is on a roll.

    Tackling on defense was very, very bad. Gaines and Ray Ray missed a lot today.

    As bad as McGee was in coverage, he was exceptional coming off the edge on blitzes. I told you guys that the coverage wasn’t gonna get that much better, especially with Mike Williams starting.

    As Al Davis would say, just win baby, thats all I want. Nothing wrong with an ugly win at this point. Lets hope the team heals up and prepares hard for next week.

He had some good blitzes and with his speed he gets there, but got to make the guy pay when he does. UNC DL = MEN! HA! We’ll GTech was down 14-0 but they’ve stormed back now. Will be tough next week. But they do give up points on D. We’ll have to use the O as our Best D next week because we’ll get gashed in the 600+ yard area I’m assuming!

    October 15, 2011

    Defense was playing well there for a minute, but the secondary is what we thought it was. I assuming at this point, but I think Williams was responsible for giving up that long touchdown in the 4th. I think everyone is starting to see why coach D wont play his corners up too close.

    The front seven was playing very well in the 2nd half until those last two drives. Chick in two years is gonna be an All-American and Ojomo is starting to look more comfortable in his role. And I really hope Regis is ok because we cant suffer anymore injuries to our DTs.

    Another week, another passive gameplan from coach D. I dont like it, but the back end just isn’t good enough for us to be more aggressive. We even played more cover 2 in the 2nd half and still looked average.

  377. avatar

    DaytonCane

    October 15, 2011

    If our offensive line plays next week as well as it did today, Ga Tech is gonna have a lot of trouble defending us. They cant be as good at stopping the run as UNC is, and Dwight Jones had a good game against them a couple weeks ago.

    If UNCs DBs cant cover us, then Tech’s DBs cant either. All we got to worry about is all those wacky formations that the defense will line up in confusing our OL.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I think J12 is a good QB. I really believe now it was Whipples fault for J12’s decline cause if that wasnt the case he’d be playing the same way as he did the last two years.

    A perfect example of this is when Jacory scrambled around the pocket i believe in the 3rd quarter and ended up throwing the ball out of bounds. The announcers went on to say last year he prolly would of threw it to the other team.

    This shows me that he felt forced to make a play with Whipple, but Fisch has taught him better. Week by week he is getting better and its allowing Fisch to open up the play book.

    Jacory is playing smarter, better, tougher, and with more confidence as the games go by. It really is a shame Whipple did what he did, and we didnt have Fisch from the start, but hey no use crying over spilt milk cause though Jacory will leave after this year, Fisch will be here and he excites me more then J12.

    I hope all of those recruits at that game took notice of both the offense and defense.

    Come to Miami if you want to play under a competent, smart, and knowledgable OC that will make you look great.

    But it really should be better than what he is, Bennie.

    He has regressed from last year, just not providing that change-of-pace role that he was supposed to fill. And he’s fumbling more this year.

    We need to spell Miller more cause of his shoulder problems, and I think they had to take him out today because of something else that is hurting. James gotta step it up and be more effective with the carries that he’s being given.

    October 15, 2011

    Yep, BG.

    Just not 100% sure this team is capable of winning out. Being optimistic and hopeful is great and all, but this team is so immensely bi-polar. It’s one thing when they’re hot one game and not the next, but this is going down to HALVES, and QUARTERS.

    Defense as a whole is what it is, regardless. They are the same unit week in and out. Which, unfortunately.. Isn’t very good.

    Even as bad as FSU’s OL is playing, even as bad as BC has been as a whole, even though GT just lost and pretty much had the blueprint laid out on how to beat them.. You have to wonder how we’ll fare.

    Bennie

    October 15, 2011

    Not sure what you can do when you’re only being given three carries. He got better YPC than Lamar did in this instance as well.

    It’s squarely on the coaching staff. Mike James had a great showing against VT when he was called upon and was then only called for three times in the run game against North Carolina.

    And, he also caught a pass for a touchdown.

    Can only do so much when you aren’t being called on and your OL is going up against a man of a DL.

    That’s ALL Miller did all day, that final drive. Fortunate we got that, UNC didn’t want to give up anything on the ground.

    When they interviewed Withers before the game he seemed kind of smitten, like he knew shutting the run down would shut down the offense.

    I’m sure he was unpleasantly surprised.

    Looks like college football is going the way of the NFL, meaning no defense allowed.

    Pretty soon every team is going to look like Oregon and Auburn.

    As much as I love the pro-style offense, I wouldn’t mind Golden experimenting with running that Oregon offense and the tempo they play at. With the talent that we bring in, we could average 45 points a game.

    Only downside is that every time you face a power team you’re gonna get beat up front.

    We put 28 on V Tech last week in the second half and I guarantee you no one up there is bitching about how they won.

    The Heels were 5-1 and playing at home. and we freaking THUMPED them.

    A mad scramble at the end of the game shouldnt detract from that as much as some of you are.

    A conference win, especially on the road, is a great win. PERIOD!

    ### Suspended receiver Aldarius Johnson will turn pro (he’s projected to go undrafted) instead of transferring to another school for a final year of eligibility, his mother said. Johnson is on track to graduate in December, and UM has shown no interest in reinstating him.

    UM told him he needed to be more honest with the NCAA, but Johnson stuck by his original story, that he played in a bowling-for-dollars event with other players and Nevin Shapiro, but that he did not receive any of the other benefits that Shapiro alleged. UM’s “official” reason for suspending him is for sending a tweet asking people for strip club suggestions.

    /////////////////////////////////

    Plan and simple man, and you knew it too because we kept saying the same thing, nipple’s offenses never paid attention to detail and than how long can a real oc keep leting his qb carrying out terrible fakes and #62’s a.k.a. j12’s footwork was terrible under nipple, now he’s standing in there again, setting his feet and firing the ball in their again and the stat that goes back to what we were saying before j12 was actually named the starter, when we said j12 gives our offense the best chance to be explosive, so when you look at the stats from yesterday, at one point, we had 7 pass plays over 20 yards, lol, that’s ridiculous.

    I always knew #62 was the least of our problems, and where is that video of al goldie leaving j12 hanging again, welp, yesterday, goldie couldn’t wait to dap j12 up durign the game, they understand how the west won and went undefeated 2 years in a row, no qb has ever come out of Miami doign what j12 did and had aldarius been here as well, he would’ve been ballin this year too, but with the emergence of allen hurns, that made the coaching staff make that decision they made as well. aldarius has and was always the best route runner on the team.

    cav, don’t worry, alot of people just kept looking at those picks, and like me & you both kept pointing out, those high pick numbers were a product of that offensive system not j12, in highschool j12 took care of the football just like he is now, in highschool i remember somebody sayign kyle wrong had a high number of picks even in highshcool. j12 was the way better qb than marve and all those clowns who left. Would’ve been real good to have storm johnson on the squad, i’m not counting on duke johnson myself come next year although he’s legit, but we’ll see how he is as a runningback. speaking of which, whatever technique terry i teaching these backs when it comes to blocking is not working consistently, to many times these guys keep whiffin on blocks.

    Also, haggens, while he is a good blocker, this guy seems to keep going up the whole clueless on who to actually block to many times a game for me. You can tell the difference between soldinger, cassano wasn’t that bad, he at least knew how to teach guys how to block consistently. Teams are definitely going to have to respect the passing and the running game now for sure.

    As far as defense goes, the only reason the defense looked half way decent yesterday was simply because unc’s qb was basically going to be where he was after the ball was hiked, had he had any wheels, unc would’ve torched our defense. And like it’s been said several times, spence save coach do noff. Offensively i’m sure jedd wanted more points on the board, but what bothered me when i was listening to that raising Canes video after the v-tech game and hearing harland gunn talking about you could tell v-tech started getting complacent and feeling like they had the game and he went on to say something like “almost any team that gets up by 14 starts to feel like they have the game” i’m thinking, 14 points, if he thinks that’s a comfortable lead he’s crazy, and just goes to show the difference between the mentalities of somebody knowing what dominating is.

    We had a chance to dominate unc offensively yesterday and we didn’t do it, we’re getting there, would’ve been good in j12 had 1 more year, this offense would be humming. cav play action actually working now, the qb under center with the empty backfield, i just don’t understand how somebody can be an oc and think that that formation somehow gives their offense an advantage.

    When you look back at the season, no team we’ve played thus far is more talented than us, they just were better coached than us in many areas during the game.

    Derron Thomas goes out last night with a knee injury. I thought for sure that would be it but they plug in a red shirt freshman who can run like forrest gump. Wow ducks back ups played amazing last night. Now can this kid carry the team for the remainder af the season, not sure? But ASU did not game plan for his legs!

    I love how their defense, as small as they are, they have a killer instinct. They have the smallest corners I have seen but they are smart and play the ball so well. The ASU recievers towered above those corners.

    Canes corners look lost way too much and not aggressive enough and I don’t think have much confidence?

    I can’t wait for the canes to play a full game with confidence and aggressiveness and with the killer instinct!!!!!

    Just checked out the ACC stats. As a team, Miami is pretty middle of the road in everything. Individually, Jacory is SECOND in pass efficiency and Spence ranks the same in all-purpose tackles. And Wieclaw is, of course, tied for first in his categories.

    It’s funny looking at those team numbers because it would make you think our defense is as good as our offense by just the rankings.

    Not sure if that is because we didn’t have cupcakes like FSWho to run up the score on or ???

    Anyway, it makes it clear how those numbers can lie.

    Either that or everyone in the ACC has a good offense and a mediocre defense so we don’t distinguish ourselves as the best or the worst.

    That is my point exactly. We have some great individual performances, Lamar Miller is up there too of course, but as a team, we are just mediocre.

    But it is deceiving because to look at those stats, you wouldn’t know how good our offense is/can be.

    I never thought I’d say this, but I wish Jacory had another year with Fisch.

    Imagine what he could have been if he had the opportunity to red shirt as a freshman instead of constantly going in to clean up Bobby Drama’s messes or fill in after he broke the rules.

    Again, we wronged Jacory here more than he wronged us.

    Absolutely. Jeddi’s using him as the perfect decoy and he burned UNC doing that. I wish James would heal though, if that’s the problem, cause we need a straight-ahead downhill runner to keep the defense off balance.

    >>>>>>>

    Cal, I swear the day he realizes that a player like M. Rob SHOULD ALREADY BE IN THE BACKFIELD instead of WAITING ON THE BLOCKER, will be the day he puts together something close to Hurricane Football on the D.

    M Rob is lightning quick. The few plays he’s made in the backfield all come from his agility and instincts. It’s going to be the same with Vernon.

    LET THEM BLOW UP THE PLAY IN THE BACKFIELD!!!!!!! Fuk waitin on a block, then having leverage to the outside, then CBs coming up for support.

    STOP THE PLAY BEFORE IT STARTS….

    Did he NEVER see a Hurricane defense in action?? If not, he needs to go back and study the film. Hell he needs to study the film of 2009 and 2010 GT.

    His whole mental approach to defense is BIG TEN PSU……the only time our defense plays right is when a team is at the five yard line…..cause they can’t back up any more.

    Does he think that;’s a success???? Maybe he thinks shutting out Buffalo and Akron actually means something….smh

    I’d really rather see him fired and some NFL equivalent of Jeddi brought in.

    Canesx3, you like him now, but wait until we play them in a bowl game and he does something like pick Miller up and slam him when he’s clearly out of bounds.

    He isn’t a very instinctual player to begin with, and doing stuff like that just makes him worse. Did it twice last night to two Oregon players that were clearly out of bounds. Did some dirty stuff to Matt Barkley a year ago as well.

    Jack Lambert didnt even do some of the stuff this dude does.

    I agree Whipple was a cancer to everyone!!!!

    I really liked the first half offense yesterday, I was so excited I thought canes might actually score every time they got the ball….really thought it would be a blow out.

    Nice that we are doing good in the Stats game….maybe some of the guys will get some individual awards….Lamar Miller was not a factor yesterday….I felt the o-line gave up in the 2nd half…almost like they thought the game was won and were coasting.

    >>>>>>>>>>

    Yes they did. Old soft habits in new territory. They’re been taught how to dominate. They barely know how to win.

    They didn’t do ANY run blocking in the first so I’m not sure what they were so giddy about. They should’ve known UNC would come out swinging and since out defense was barely holding on against their O, our OL should’ve known it was far from over.

    But they’re learning just like everyone else. The best part is that VT and UNC were arguably the two best defenses we’ll face all year, FSU aside, although I’m not sure how hot they are this year.

    Just checked out the ACC stats. As a team, Miami is pretty middle of the road in everything. Individually, Jacory is SECOND in pass efficiency and Spence ranks the same in all-purpose tackles. And Wieclaw is, of course, tied for first in his categories.

    It’s funny looking at those team numbers because it would make you think our defense is as good as our offense by just the rankings.

    Not sure if that is because we didn’t have cupcakes like FSWho to run up the score on or ???

    Anyway, it makes it clear how those numbers can lie.

    Either that or everyone in the ACC has a good offense and a mediocre defense so we don’t distinguish ourselves as the best or the worst.

    >>>>>>>>>>

    It’s a tale of two seasons, that’s why we’re middle of the road.

    The first four games were average. The last two and 1/2 games were sharp. If we keep this up, as I suspect we will, we’ll be at or near the top in most categories on offense.

    Defense is just about holding on…..

    I can’t say I like him, but I like watching him, I admit it. He’s got the right attitude, he just needs to pull back before he gets a penalty. Just be smarter. imo, the best linebackers have that headhunter mentality, but can control it a little better. Point is, you can’t teach that type of killer aggression. Better to have somebody that has too much of it and have them dial it down, than someone who’s a little more passive and have them turn it up. You can’t turn aggression – it already has to be there.

    I’ll take Burfict over any Canes LB that tries to hang on for dear life to the hand warmer of the opposing team and is being dragged down field by it

    Just like I’d take Nick Fairley over any Cane DL since Wilfork (even though those 2 shots to Aaron Murray’s knee were a little much last year) -or- Suh, even though some people like to call him the dirtiest DL in the NFL

    You can hopefully reign in the stupid …. but it’s hard to get someone to unleash the fury

    Not a lot of fury from Cane DL or LBs these past few years

    Wait until GPaul and DZP are out there full time though. You obviously see my boy Chick and his promise

    Now the Bucs fans are going to have to deal with a Croc RB that is only good for 3rd Downs … the only ones that will like that are all the idiot Croc fans in the area who will try to convince each other that Earnest Graham is actually above mediocre at best

    But Six dont you know that Marcus Forston is the best and most talented defensive linemen since Sapp? Clearly he’s better than Suh or Fairley.

    Not trying to bash any current Cane, but I seriously doubt Forston even becomes as good as Terrence Knighton (former Temple DT) is right now for the Jags.

    But hey, thats just me.

    Good news is that we’ll most likely have a good rotation at DT next year (pending health issues). And we’ll need those big bodies to keep linemen off our munchkin LBs.

    So much of EVERYTHING that went wrong last year had Whip’s name on it. You can only have 1 chief not 2. Everyone has to play their position and he always thought from the beginning he was better than Randy. He is the reason for a lot of what went down last year internally.

    No no no cc. He wouldn’t have played a minute there except in mop up duty. That high school pinball offense requires a running QB (Thomas or Masoli). He would not have beat those guys out because they are much quicker and better runners.

    bg I’ve been to every game and Jacory’s never been booed hard at all. Heard a few scattered boos after an int against KSU, but they were scattered. I think considering everything, he’s been treated well at the stadium. Sure I’ve heard people yell all kinds of crazy things, but that’s scattered. A$$holes are everywhere.

    True,Bennie. If you’re in public life, sports, politics, entertainment, w/e, people are going to talk shyte no matter what. They say all kinds of crap about you in college towns too, especially if you throw a lot of ints. In fact, in a college town you can’t get away from it.

    If the fans dont show any type of acknowledgement of Jacory’s tremendous play so far, then they are just haters. Dude has played out of his mind so far.

    But I guess that is just par for the course for those people down there that make every excuse in the world to not go to the games.
