Mary Knows Football: Week 8

259 comments

USC @ Notre Dame:  USC

This isn’t the most relevant matchup anymore, but if you know any Trojan or Lying Irish fans, you know this is a bitter rivalry. Hatred is always fun.  The Golden Domers, 4-2 and coming off a bye week, are foaming at the mouth to get their hands on a supposedly sanction-decimated USC squad.  USC comes into South Bend with a 5-1 record, but has yet to defeat a ranked opponent.  The key to this game is how well each defense’s secondaries perform, as both Ds are good at stopping the run and both offenses are primarily aerial.  USC needs to be careful because Notre Shame has found its offense with QB Tommy Rees and WR Michael “I’m not drunk, occifer” Floyd and USC’s secondary ranked 105th in the nation, giving up 271 passing yards per game (Notre Lame averages 273 passing yards per game). Meanwhile, the Crying Irish need to watch out for USC QB Matt Barkley, who is completing nearly 70% of his passes and has thrown 16 TDs to just 4 INTs. The Trojans are throwing for nearly 300 yards per game (8 per attempt) and Barkley’s favorite target is WR Robert Woods who has 60 catches thus far this season.  Ultimately, I think Barkley and Woods will capitalize on the Irish secondary’s vulnerability against the deep pass and the Trojan’s defense (who forced 5 turnovers against Cal last Thursday) will slow down Rees and Floyd.

20 Auburn @ 1 LSU:  LSU

Remember when Auburn won a national championship?  Wait, that was just last year?  Wow; Cam really WAS worth every penny.  As any of us who were cheering on the Tigers against the dirty crocs last weekend know, Auburn is um. . . not good.  It’s called an offense.  Look into it.  You know what you get when you put one of the worst offenses in college football against the best defense?  You got it. A shut out in Death Valley.  Word is out that the Honey Badgder, Tyrann Mathieu, is suspended from this game for failing a drug test (I guess he literally does “take what he wants”), which is a shame because I think he could have taken that War Eagle and make it into a nice hat to match his  “now and later gator shoes” that he skinned off Jacoby Brissett 2 weeks ago.  Either way, this one will get ugly in a hurry and I think you know both teams enough by now (LSU’s offense can run, Auburn can’t stop that) that I don’t need to go into the gory details.

6 Wisconsin @ 16 Michigan State:  Michigan State

Wisconsin (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) is off to its best start since 2004, including leading the nation with an average of 50.2 points while the Badgers’ 523.2 ypg offense ranks 8th. Earlier this week when I thought the Badgers had been robbed with their No. 6 ranking, EOTH blogger Six quickly reminded me about who their opponents have been thus far.  Nebraska is the only ranked team Wisconsin has seen, and every game has taken place in Madison with the exception of a 49-7 victory over Northern Illinois (safe to say that game was in the bag before they took the field).  Meanwhile, the Spartans are just coming off the defeat of their bitter rivals, former No. 11 Michigan, against whom their No. 2 ranked defense registered SEVEN sacks.  The Spartan D has a total of 21 sacks, 8 INTs, and only yields 180 yards per game. Look for the Badger offense and Heisman hopeful QB Russell Wilson to all the sudden not look so all-world anymore. Moreover, the yet-to-be-tested Badger defense will have to contend with Kirk Cousins, who is completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 1,317 yards with eight touchdowns and four INTs, and RB Edwin Baker, who is coming off his best performance of the season, rushing for 167 yards and a touchdown on 26 attempts against Michigan.  Look for Wisconsin to have a big let-down game in East Lansing.

22 GA Tech @ Miami:  M – I – A – M – I FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

I don’t think I’ve been this excited for a home game since . . . oh, wait, a month ago against the suckeyes!  I forget how much I live for ‘Canes football until it is (sort of) taken away from me for two weeks because I had to throw the game watches in Palm Beach county instead of being live at the game.  In this time away from my love, Jacory has really started to inspire confidence and the offense is gelling.  The defense is . . . well, I think they are improving.  However, Miami’s ability to stop the run was delivered a [low] blow today when Golden announced that Micanor “the ball crusher” Regis would be suspended for his [caught on camera] punch to a UNC player’s groin.  Now at DT the ‘Canes have Ojomo and some dudes most of you didn’t know played for Miami.  The silver lining is that Olivier Vernon is BACK.  I’m optimistic that Ojomo and crew can handle the runs down the middle and Vernon can take care of the outside . . . unless they run the ball on the side Vernon is not on [plugs ears, sings “lalalala”and thinks happy thoughts].  It doesn’t look particularly good for our defense, but I have a good feeling that we end up outscoring them.  Look forward to a shoot-out on Saturday, ‘Canes fans . . . and GET YOUR @$$ TO THE STADIUM AND SUPPORT OUR TEAM!  #FREEREGIS

GO ‘CANES!!!

    If Regis played for the Gators he would only be suspended for the 1st play of the game. Sh*t is stupid.

    Players get bitten and get their legs, arms stomped, get kicked in the gut and ribs, and get their ankles twisted at the bottom of those piles all the time. Spikes tried to gouge a dudes a eye out.

    Both!, please.

    First. Calvin, do you pay attention to what’s going on, my friend?

    I’ll be a man and man up that I called Nelson and Davis wrong. Believe me, the talent was there, but the discipline was not. Had they made the personal choice about being Miami football players, they’d still be here. But in the end, they’re not here, and I was wrong.

    Sup, Nash? Long time, bro! Not going to Tally, already crossed that off my bucket list in 2009. And what a great year I picked to do that. An aside, once is enough to experience Tally with a win. Trust.

    Like bg1906 and JSQ said previously, I’ll be writing for UFR Sports, with a mid-season report card due tomorrow. I’ll post a link here, twitter it, etc.

    S/O to bg again for hooking me up with his network. Looking forward to the third chapter.

    I’ll be checking in with all my old friends more often, dropping some recruiting knowledge here and there. If you guys have any questions about recruiting, I’ll do my best to answer what I know or can find out.

  8. Yo, Holy, you are down in Miami, go take soup to Jacory Harris. Poor kid is sick!

    I’m off to make jello shots!

    WOOO HOOOO! IT’S ALMOST GAME DAY!!! :-D

  9. Nicole just told me she is tabling for Zeta at the Dolphin game on Sunday…..I told her to get ready for the Tebow love fest…barf, barf. Of all games!!!

    Someone needs to remind SDM that she’s an ugly, two-big hack…….who has found a way to annoy every coach and player she’s ever interviewed……

    Regis hurts but I’m past worrying about this D really stopping anyone. If they can get a couple of key stops here and there it might be enough.

    The UVA game hopefully showed NO’d some tricks to the way Johnson is running it this year. They played Navy and Army and both ran up and down the field, so it’s going to be a shootout.

    This is not the week for Jacory to be sick.

    We are playing with our backup’s backups this week, so we need at least 30 on the board.

    Finally re-watched the UNC game. Tried watching it live on Saturday, but after my bday bash friday night, I had the hangover from hell during the game..lol

    Great show from the O in the first half, still waiting for a 4 quarter game from them

    D..ehhhh, they were what I thought they were, I’m only hoping they can force 2 turnovers vs GT.

    DaytonCane says:

    Golden has beaten the triple option before, though I’m not really sure how different Paul Johnson’s system is from the ones at Army and Navy.

    2008: Temple 38, Army 7/ Navy 33, Temple 27 (had this game in the bad before a Temple running back was stripped with 48 seconds left in the game).

    2009: Temple 27, Army 13/ Temple 27, Navy 24

    2010: Temple 42, Army 35

    But none of that matters because we have only 1 big body in the middle this week, so expect a shootout.

  15. No worries shwarm.

    BG to the rescue and is on his way down with a wooby and a baba for his lil buddy.

    I assure you, avoiding getting sick is near impossible with 5+ days of torrential downpour, going in and out of classrooms that swing wildly between sauna and meat locker whilst damp.

    (I’m not bitter or anything, noooooo.)

    The moral of the story? JSQ, if you make Robitussin Jello shots, will you pretty please swing some my way? Wahhhhhhh!

    [Props to DaytonCane for spelling Robitussin correctly :) ]

  17. Dayton, PJ coached a couple of those Navy teams if I am not mistaken so this staff is well aware of what he is all about.

    Gtech is a different animal athlete wise tho but then again we are too.

    Thing that scares me is this game could go either way given the shape the D is in and the fact that you never know what offense is going to show up from qtr to qtr.

    Still ain’t scared.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  19. “I’m more a dimetapp kid.

    Funny story, completely unrelated to football:
    For Father’s Day this year, I wrote a list of life lessons that I’ve learned from my dad and posted it on Facebook. On that list? “Too much grape Dimetapp is unlikely to actually harm a child.”

    ….my parents divorced when I was little, and when I was sick at Dad’s, he’d hand me the bottle of Dimetapp and tell me to “take a swig.”

    In retrospect, this explains a lot.

    >>>>>>>>>

    Yeah, those early year scores are baffling. I guess Navy and Army were really weak then.

    The 2010 scores are what worry me. NO’d regressed, with his beloved 5th year seniors to boot….

    However, if UVA can hold them to 24 I’ll give NO’d a fighting chance. Between that and his experience in the past, and the 2009 and 2010 games as guides on how to shut it down, he’ll figure out something.

    That prediction of 38-24 has a nice ring to it.

    Did I just say that??? haha

  27. MSU is gonna hold the Badgers pockets, and crease everybody’s pants on Wisconsin’s pod….

    I’m down with errrythang else.

  28. Cav I dont have confidence in any part of this team yet.

    The offense has played well in two halves this year and the d, well that Is what it is.

    Special teams shyt the bed last week so nothing Is a sure thing these days.

    I look for the small things that this program will build on for the future.

    We are on the right track.

    DaytonCane says:

    Dont really see how USC beats Notre Dame, that Domer defense is starting to look better. If they figure out how to cover a little better, look out.

    And IDK about that Michigan State pick. They are at home, but I dont think Kirk Cousins can pick that team apart like he is gonna have to because you aint running on Wisky. Cousins had a rough day throwing on Notre Dame’s defense and they play a lot of zone. Wisconsin plays a lot of zone as well.

    Every team that LSU plays execpt for Alabama is irrelevant. That game decides one of the national championship teams.

  32. Dayton, I struggled with those picks, could go either way.

    Canez1, how did ST ish the bed? They got a turnover and Wieclaw made all his field goals. Botts could have done better on punts and TB messed up on the one punt return, that’s it.

  33. Wisky just mauls folks. They are the ONLY Big10 that doesn’t bore the sh!t outta me.

  34. we had this growing up – Manteca de ubre – http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vaquita-Udder-Balm-Manteca-Ubre-3-17-oz-Tin-/380352916386

    this was the p.r. cure all.

  35. Wisky hasn’t played anyone yet besides Nebraska.

    I’ll give them some respect if they can put away Michigan State.

  36. Swanny, I hope you feel better soon!

    Classes in the LC were the worst with this weather! Memorial a close second! Meat lockers!

  37. The USC pick was based on their ability to get turnovers and Notre Dame’s struggles covering the deep ball, which Barkley can throw.

    I originally had Notre Lame until I saw that.

    Both teams’ secondaries are a liability. The game should be bombs over Baghdad because both teams can stop the run.

    The intangibles are that Notre Dame is at home and coming off a bye.

    It was a tough pick.

    I’ve been 75% or 100% every week since Week 1 … I gotta be wrong sometime! ;-)

  38. If the dang ‘Canes were undefeated I’d be near perfect! Grrrr! Insult to injury!

  39. You also have to look at the Spartan defense and what they can do.

    Seven sacks in 1 game against the then-11th ranked team = no joke.

    Wisconsin hasn’t seen anything like that.

    Not saying they will shut them down completely, but I don’t think they will look the same as they have against the sisters of the poor and soft tape U.

    Ms Clark

    What’s ya record picking the canez???

  41. JSQ.

    I agree with everything BUT Wisconsin. They are FOR REAL!

  42. Wisconsin is going to win this week. The reason why? They got Russell Wilson and Michigan State doesn’t.

  43. Punts were garbage and kickoff coverage was shaky.

    Just not as sharp as they have been but that happens.

    Weiclaw has been the f’n man.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  44. I would have usc over nd as well.

    Rooting for msu to take out wisc.

    Cant stand that red.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  45. Listening to Golden on Hurricane Hotline you can betcha bottom dollar the 3-4 is surely in our future. He seems euphoric almost talking about it.

  46. Nash, my record is the ‘Canes record, although technically last week I shrugged but then said reasons we could win and begged them not to break my heart this week!

  47. avatar
    DaytonCane says:

    Good point about the sacks.

    But I cant go against that gigantic Wisconsin o-line and a guy who threw 326 straight passes without an interception.

  48. We’ll see, bg. It could be a mirage.

    And I don’t like picking the higher ranked team just because they are higher ranked. I think it is important to see who they have played against.

    MSU is also coming off a big win and will be playing at home. Wisconsin has been in Madison all year except 1 game.

    Might rattle them.

    If I’m wrong, I’m wrong! :-)

  49. Yep, it was a hard pick to make. Wisconsin seems legit, but … We’ll see.

    This is why I pick these sorts of games, to spark debate. I almost didn’t do LSU:Auburn but the Honey Badger drug story came out this afternoon and the jokes just flooded my brain! Lol.

    There aren’t many good matchups this week. Almost did Oklahoma State v Mizzou but the thought made me yawn. Who cares?! Haha

  50. JSQ…no “if”. you’ll be wrong. Russell Wilson will be able to run for Governor of Wisconsin after this year.

  51. IMO Wisky is a LEGIT Nat’l Title Contender. Them at 6 in the BCS is a JOKE!

  52. And of course it was too late to make a pick on Tuesday night’s epic battle between two storied football programs … FIU vs. Arkansas State.

    Bahahahahahahaha

  53. By the way, 125 jello shots made for the tailgate, posted a pic on twitter. :-)

  54. The Badgers should house MSU somewheres to the tune of 44-24.

  55. Okay, guys, I get it, you disagree!

    Someone will prolly clip em’, but I think they’re paper better than every team left on their schedule.

  59. LMAO, Dayton!

    Yep, Hurri, that’s why they play the game instead of running the stats through a computer and telling you who wins. ;-)

  60. • Dyron Dye has changed positions again. Dye came to UM as an All-American defensive end, where he played for two seasons. Then, in the off-season he added nearly 30 pounds and was moved to defensive tackle. In the fall, he switched over to tight end. Now, he’s been moved to offensive tackle. If Dye’s future already looked bleak, one would assume this move just makes it worse. Dye is a red shirt sophomore listed at 6-6, 275. He has not played in any games this season.

  61. • Former UM head coach Larry Coker is in his first season at UT-San Antonio, where the Roadrunners are 2-5 in their inaugural season of football. Coker’s squad is playing a Division I-A schedule this season before joining the WAC next season.

  62. Plus Wisconsin has this…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veHQMaxiOmg

    Which I think is better than VT’s Sandman.

  63. Ohhhh Larry.

    Such a nice man.

    Mid-season report card on offense article will be live on UFRSports.com in the morning at 9.

    I’ll post a live link when it’s up.

  70. I’ve been saying for how long that the overwhelming majority of the media following the Canes down there sucks

    Stupid questions asked. Bad articles written (still laugh at the sky is falling crap that was written for how long by all of them when the Yahoo article came out). Fat asses crying at every single moment they can over stupid things such as not getting enough “access” … funny, for someone who really shouldn’t even be credentialed in the first place if you think about it

    I love Suzy Kolber – true Cane she is of course she gave the gas face when the mention of the Crocs being honored came up

    Reporters shouldn’t be trying to break down games/schemes/personnel/etc. .. only thing they should be doing is possibly offering options if anything, after reporting the actual news that is given to them or what they’ve researched

    Then again, if you think about it, some of the reporters that people bag on when they try to analyze a game and give their 2 cents about what should’ve happened during a game – they’re not much different than anyone like us on a blog, writing about it as well

  71. Wisky is only where they are for right now in the BCS Standings simply b/c of who they’ve played

    They deserve to be where they are in the BCS Rankings

    3 of the teams they’ve played so far are a combined 3-16 and another opponent they’ve played is a FCS school

  72. What do you guys think about this Regis suspension? Cookie not suspended for a game but Regis is?

    I don’t agree with or like dirty play but I am not sure it warrants a full game suspension?

    IDK????

  73. I
    Change.
    By not changing at all.
    Small town predicts my fate.
    I wish…

  74. Trust the coaches.

  75. Getting busted for “Synthetic marijuana” is

    ridiculous

  76. CC, why would Cookie have been suspended?? Pitt last year??

  77. No for his drunken antics and being arrested!

    Just think that was not enough and this one is overkill.

    I think this defense lacks aggressiveness…..don’t you think this makes them more nervous?

    IDK? I don’t know Regis not sure if he has a history but I am just not sure about this decision!

  78. Is every Thursday night game PAC 12 for the rest of the season?

  79. Nope, we are the Thursday night game next week

  80. While I do think Regis’ suspension is excessive, the two situations are readily distinguishable.

    – Cookie’s arrest was during the off-season
    – The charges were reduced to a misdemeanor
    – Cookie’s situation was before UM was under so much scrutiny
    – Cookie’s behavior was not during a game, and caught on tape

  81. As long as Paul Cryst is calling those plays Wisky will look like the same old beast. Russel is uuuhhh..hhmmmm… how do i say it….??? VERY GOOD.

    That offense just makes things easier for him.

    He’s a great decision maker. I say they blast MSU in what seems to be a shootout AT FIRST.

  90. Regis just should have had to issue an apology. this ain’t tennis. its football. no suspension warranted.

    Cookie should have been suspended though. Get arrested equals automatic 1 game suspension – if things are 100% dismissed then maybe no suspension necessary. but reduced charges means you still miss a game.

    think about it. Cookie got arrested and not suspended and some of these players didn’t get arrested but were suspended three games (even if it was a silent suspension).

  99. Where do you see that an Auburn fan is having a fit?

    This internet thing is cool… thanks Al Gore.

  100. Call your family today Canez1… celebrate the life. :)

  101. My friend, the LSU girl, posted MKF and he is having a fit on her FB page.

    It’s all fun and games until you realize that the person you are talking about (the writer – me!) is friends with the person who posted it.

    D’OH!

  102. Bizarro Six needs to fix my computer! Need to get to work! AHHH!

    That’s what I call this guy in the IT department.

    He looks just like Six, but he is a criminole fan.

  103. DZ no doubt!

    Gonna take my mom and grams to dinner tonight to get their minds off of it.

    Ladies night!

    CANEZ1 – Much Appreciated.

    And nice going by taking the family out. I don’t have any grandparents left but my kids have several and I try to explain to them that grandparants are wonderful people and to enjoy time with them while you still can.

  105. lol, good man.

    When you’ve become a grandpa you can say you’ve done your job, or something like that, you know what I’m saying.

  106. Kind of like being an uncle… spoil them and then when theyre being brats you go home. :)

    Thats what I do at least.

  107. Raize no doubt.

    My moms mom is the only one left so we have to look out for the old girl.

    DZ lol the uncle thing is the only way to go!!!

    Love em and ditch em ;-)

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  108. Este – AGREED! This does not sit very well with me!

    I see your points JSQ but one thing you have to be with kids is consistent….not being consistent has bit me in the but a few times will raising my kids.

    and my dog :)

  109. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAIZE….and the weather is so beautiful….enjoy your day!

  110. while raising my kids^

    • Dyron Dye has changed positions again. Dye came to UM as an All-American defensive end, where he played for two seasons. Then, in the off-season he added nearly 30 pounds and was moved to defensive tackle. In the fall, he switched over to tight end. Now, he’s been moved to offensive tackle. If Dye’s future already looked bleak, one would assume this move just makes it worse. Dye is a red shirt sophomore listed at 6-6, 275. He has not played in any games this season.

    >>>>>>>>>>

    WTF is this about?

    Did Dye suddenly lose ALL his agility?? Or has he grown so much he has to move to OL? Or is this more of the push to transfer…which still doesn’t make any sense.

    BG??? C1? Bueller?

  114. Cav not sure what is going on there.

    Sounds like the Sanford three were a bit overhyped.

    Could be anything really.

    Dubose hasn’t done dyk either.

    Also remember that with a complete coaching overhaul some kids just don’t get it. That sounds like what is going on ooooor maybe he was never going to get it.

    He is young. Plenty of time to turn it around but not looking good so far.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  115. Excellent listen with Coach Fisch on Hurricane Hotline Part 2.

    http://www.theufootball.com/

  116. Hard to say. C1 kind of alluded to it, but they’ve done really nothing. Ray Ray was thought to have the highest ceiling and still does. Debose hasn’t been the same since the hamstring injury. Dye was thought to be the least of the 3 but was a big body that could move and had a great “get off.” Unless he’s utterly terrible, we could actually use him and Jeremy Lewis back on the DL.

    Este brought this up b4 BUT it ???SEEMS??? goldie brought some of the dl depth probs on himself moving guys to OL where it also SEEMED we already had bodies…

    So the dye move to ot is a head scratcher to me???

  120. raizecane – happy birthday … now go shave your balls you dusty old fart

    I watched Talladega Nights earlier, kept re-watching all the scenes with Walker and Texas Ranger (or TR as we like to call him) when they’re yelling at the grandpa Chip and also when they’re yelling at the next door neighbor

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikbT372DaMU

  121. Or Golden knows that offense is all we have and wanted to load that side of the ball.

    Even still, d line is super thin.

  122. JSQ – bizarro Six huh … that means he’s the opposite of me?

    So he must be butt ass balls ugly, smell like Jovan Musk and have the fashion sense of Hungarian tourist discovering the wonders of a beach for the first time in Florida

    Figures though that he’s in IT if he’s any part Asian

    I’m Hawai’ian Korean … so that means I’ve only some of the strengths and weaknesses. I’m a badass at laundry, I’m good with electronics, I’m pretty sure I could build or design a KIA or Hyundai – but might have a little trouble b/c I suck at higher stages of math and wasn’t really pumped about doing homework. I won’t eye your dog or cat and wonder what he or she would taste like with a side of rice. I do make sure to eye everyone in a convenience store though and keep tabs on where they are at all times and I’m good at repairing Nikes, so probably would be good at making them. I’m all about the extreme fundamentals of baseball but I absolutely hate soccer, such as all real Americans do (as per what Kenny Powers says) … and finally, I haven’t had problems with females running to another G.I. to love them long time b/c my eggroll wasn’t satisfactory

    Met Jed Fisch last nite also and chatted for some time before his radio spot. All I can say is he will be a Head Coach somewhere, dude is a fuking football Nerd!

    Brennan Carroll was last to show and didnt get a chance to chat with him. Next time

    Go Canes

    ps Happy Birthday Raize

    6 games attneded and 8 to go!

    Go Canes!

  125. I wonder how kevin nelson and devonta davis have been doing, anybody besides mike & mike in the afternoon know. Those 2 guys didn’t impress me, maybe devonta davis would’ve come around but kevin nelson, lol, the all time talk leader at UM before ever playing a down. Saying they would’ve been on the team means nothing, ian symonette was here for about 8 years, and a slew of other guys like him, so being on the roster just means somebody thought they should’ve been here, aubrey hill going into gaytorville, of course, makes sense to him and you, but since you became all goo-goo gah gah over the man, kevin nelson and his side-kick, i understand, and i hope you do to, next time, don’t let your attachment level far exceed the talent level!

  126. Ya, Debose didn’t just injure his hamstring .. he blew it out, bg1906 is right, kid just hasn’t been the same at all. That, and he really didn’t have a QB to throw him the ball in the system they’ve been in since he’s gotten there. Now that they have one, that QB got injured and the two Frosh stepping in aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire

    Reminds me almost of when the Canes went into Gainesville and had 2 Frosh QBs. The Crocs really have no WRs, TE (Reed isn’t exactly Aaron Hernandez, esp. since he came in as a dual threat QB) or a power back since Fred Taylor – don’t know what is going on with Gillislee b/c that kid is alright.

    WRs – Frankie Hammond 4*, Omarius Hines 4*, TJ Lawrence 4*, Deonte Thompson 4*, Chris Dunkley 4* (transferred), Quinton Dunbar 4*, Carl Moore 5*, Andre Dubose 5*

    How many of those kids that are that highly rated are tearing it up or have been tearing it up for them? Byrd, GlueFeet #4, KThompkins (is Davon Johnson a WR?) – not as highly rated as all those guys mentioned for the Crocs .. talk about a waste for those guys though from when Tim TiVo left until now, having to sit behind guys like Louis Murphy, David Nelson, Percy Harvey, Andre Caldwell, Cornelius Ingram, Riley Cooper and Aaron Hernandez. Deonte has been the best of all those guys mentioned … but the rest of them?

    I’m nursing a Grade 1 hammy injury right now. I believe Debose had a Grade 3, which is the worst. I had a Grade 2 about 2.5 years ago on the same leg I have the injury now, it’s a lingering thing. When Brantley was in there he threw some bombs to Debose – the kid is tied for the team lead in WR TDs with 2, on only 9 receptions

  127. Happy B-Day Raise, and yes, Lewis and Dye not being on DL makes zero sense.

  128. DaytonCane – ya, luckily my family wasn’t just like this …

    I wanted to respond like “oh, I didn’t know they taught their students how to use computers,” but instead I just said “I’m sorry.”

    I’ve watched Wisconsin multiple times over the last two seasons. They are more than capable of handing the ferocity of any SEC team’s pass rush and would go into a championship game against either Bama or LSU with a gigantic edge at QB.

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they won the whole thing this year and of all the teams that have a shot I’d most like to see them do it.

  132. This is a little off topic, but who cares … I bring you my daily account of hearing “Knowledge From My Hood Neighbors”

    Let me set this up. My bathroom is at the front of my apartment, next to the front door. There’s a staircase right outside my door where a lot of my neighbors like to hang out and bitch, moan, whine, drink, smoke, get into fights (last week some guy was sitting there after getting stabbed and bleeding all over b/c he was high/drunk and walked into the wrong apartment, so the resident woke up and cut him with something)

    So, as I’m sitting there taking a grumpy this morning, I hear the latest ’round the table discussion out there about how they’re being held down or can’t get a job or why the US is at war

    From the discussion I heard, did you know that ……

    – The US is in Pakistan to not only get their oil, but to get their gold as well, that’s why gold is so valuable now and that the US has been over there this entire time looking for King Soloman’s mines secretly, that’s why it’s taking them so long to pull all their troops out

    – Pakistan is located in Africa, which is also called South America … and since the guys outside of my door are originally from Africa (even though they admitted they were born in Philly, Alabama, Illinois … but they have one cell in their body from Africa from a long long time ago) and they didn’t get their 40 acres and a mule or any kind of reparations for their ancestors, then they should get a share of that gold that the US troops are taking while over in Pakistan, Africa

    – The US gives not only Social Security numbers to Indian people when they come over, but also a $100,000 check to each of them to start their own business and that’s why these guys outside my apartment can’t get a job .. and also why they always can’t stand the way they’re treated when they go into the local Dunkin Donuts or Shell station owned by Indians, b/c those Indians think they’re better than these guys simply b/c they were given the $100,000

    – That when politicians on NBC, Fox News, CNN talk about how God is important to them and should be to the country and how it’s in the Constitution about One Nation under God – that the God they speak of is really code word to the other rich people that helped get them in office and it stands for “Gold, Oil and Death” to the poor people like them that live in the hood and their distant relative brothers who are dark skinned and live in Pakistan, Africa

    I couldn’t listen any more b/c my legs were starting to fall asleep while sitting on the toilet and my face was starting to hurt from trying to contain my enormous smile from laughing at the stupidity

    This has been your daily update on “Knowledge From My Hood Neighbors”

  133. JSQ – ahh, I was thinking more along the lines of Bizarro Superman and how he looked like a full retard version of regular Superman … or like in Family Guy when Stewie made a clone of himself and Brian – called them “Bitch Stewie and Bitch Brian”

  138. No Robinson or Green on the DL this week, out officially with injuries.

  139. Cool post Sailor!

  140. Afghanistan? Gold? They got that other commodity that needs protection from the Taliban (at least when they were in power Taliban) – good ole opium.

    opium production was at an all time low when the Taliban was running things since they made it a no go.

  141. going to need to score 40 this week for real. more linemen out?

  142. and happy bday raize

  143. Este, that’s it. This is what we are rolling with on the DL.

    IN: Chick, Robinson, A. Smith, Vernon, Ojomo, D. Smith, Grimble, Pierre and King

    OUT: Fortson, Porter, Robinson, Regis, Green

    Problem is that is our top 4 DT’s.

  144. Gholston suspended for Wisky game

  145. Ah, Bitch Stewie. Fun guy.

  146. Anyone else notice what formation the Canes were in at the 3:18 mark .. 2nd and Goal from the 5 .. 4 WR spread out, with Miller joining them .. Jacory left under center with no backs and Cleveland releasing

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfoEJglzAZI&feature=related

    Isn’t that the formation that a lot of people hated (who also hated the former OC) and said was stupid, esp. that close to the endzone?

    Almost was a TD to Streeter

    The best defense we’ll have saturday is art kehoe & jedd fisch!

  148. i thought it was marcus robinson out not the robinson who’s been out. actually relieved.

  149. DaytonCane – ah man, that clip killed me, bahaha

    It kinda sounds like all of us on this blog about different subjects

    I always loved this clip, about Asian women drivers

    “Good luck everybody else!”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik_wh6D2BRU

  150. Six, it was close. usually had 2 WRs in front of the back with them more spaced out. and we always threw it to the back when lined up like that – i kept waiting for the play it was setting up. this thankfully was a decoy alignment to get one on one coverage on the opposite side so we could run the fade with more space.

    DaytonCane says:

    Well looks like the option is going to have a field day against our defense. I still think we pull it out but its gonna be gut-wrenching to see our defense get gouged.

  152. i never knew how to drive stick until i bought one last year. i went on youtube to get pointers after a rough first day. one of the videos had this asian women doing the training. you can imagine what the comments were looking like.

  153. Sorry about that Este, its M. Robinson in, L. Robinson out

    Yup put me in that number…

    But how many time u think unc has seen that play this year??

    Three step drop and a fade route ain’t a bad call on 1st down…

    But empty back field, qb under center, on third down ain’t to smart I don’t care who the qb is…

    But look at the nxt play…shot gun with a back in the backfield the defense had to defend the whole field…TD

  161. Dye not moved back to DT becuase? Heard he moved to TE because of depth? Asante, Clive, Chase etc…. IJS we have such a large pool of DT’s to choose from…

    Yeah Will and Jada are doing it big. Just hope all the rumors about them having trouble in their marriage are false.

    Now he just gotta figure out how to get rid of Elton Brand’s contract and trade Iguodala for some decent pieces lol.

  185. Cav, if we “just buy them” then its not exploiting. what’s the fun in that? at least that seems to be the line of thinking.

  186. the Sixers are just going to have to eat that Brand contract or hope the new bargaining agreement includes being able to cut one player and it not count toward the cap.

    True and my logic has one element that these lymp-dik cowards have never had- value of American life…..

    To me, be straightforward. Economically and politically annex Africa and incorporate them into the larger Pax Americana. Sit the leaders down, behind closed doors or in broad daylight, outline a plan for infrastructure building- roads and schools especially, teach English as the second language thus encouraging intra-continental and international trade and prosperity. Keep weapons to a minimum. This would establish permanent links to American industry. Leave the gray areas to them. Fight it out but keep the fighting in the political arena. America would step in as referee if necessary.

    A stable country is better than an unstable one. And the way to stability is not with a despot sitting on top ruling by fear, lining his pockets while the people starve.

    If my memory serves me correctly that’s why we whooped Georgie’s azz a couple of centuries ago.

    However, we cannot relinquish resources and wealth to enemies/rivals….

    Mike, don’t know if your comment was in reference to mine or not, but my only point is that maybe its a talent issue and not a character issue with Dyron Dye. I think it was cc that was implying there was something wrong with the kid, character-wise. Maybe that’s true, but I think it could just as well be that he’s just not good or talented enough and also that really big guys can hide lack of ENOUGH talent in HS by overwhelming guys, most or many of whom aren’t even going to play in college.

    Wasn’t intended as a shot at you that’s for sure.

  200. This is off the wall, I know, but a possible important Cane recruit…

  201. For Mike and Randy none of the rumors are from Miami, they are from his home town of Sanford. Remember I live here and hear lots of stuff from players and students in the Seminole County area. And I watched him play a lot in high school, always said RAY RAY was the best… Dye came along as a package…he was good but not great.

    Lots of ish went down at Seminole high school to include the coaching staff….rumors flew around like crazy.

    So if you believe he is great believe it that is your prerogative, I just keep waiting for him to shine and yet another coaching staff has him on the bench…..so????

    Well that’s the best insight I’ve read about the young man so far. But his highlights looked like he was agile enough to play DE. Didn’t he run track??

    Just amazed that J12 can get criticized, called names again and again on here and when someone says something about Dye, who has done nothing to help his cause at all, everyone is up in arms???

    Bradham is still stiff as a surf board, as are some of their other LBs.

    Outside of Rashad Greene, the WR core isn’t producing much.

    EJ = overrated

    Sounds like a championship contender to me. I almost hope that they do move to the SEC so they can win 7 games every year.

  211. Yeah, Canechic I announced that on here a couple of weeks ago; I will likely be there as well. The UMAA is super excited. He performed for homecoming in 2001 too so it’s great for those of us that are coming back!

  215. Someone emailed Susan about calling Regis a Pig. Even Ferman was upset, here is her response.

    Response from Degnan Reply

    ——————————————————————————–
    Sent her an email basically asking her how she had the audacity to call a player a pig and this is what she responded:

    Ryan, first, thanks for the email.

    The word I used was too harsh. I agree.

    I know this goes on all the time. If you think calling someone what I did — and again, I should have described the actions instead of the person — is worse than punching someone in the crotch after a play and also stepping on another player’s hand after another play, then I disagree.

    I am extremely respectful covering this program, almost always write meaningful, positive stories about the players, and love what I do.

    I’ll have an opportunity to talk to Micanor.

    Thanks for the note. I am a person who tries to be upbeat and not mean-spirited, which, ironically, is what spurred such strong emotions when I watched those plays. I tweeted too fast, which I won’t do in the future — just like Micanor seems to be saying he won’t do what he did anymore.

    Enjoy your weekend. I hope the Canes can enjoy theirs.

    Criminoles are huge disappointment. A lot of big talk coming from Trailerhassee before the season began.

    Now, dumbo is not looking like the genius they made him out to be. He can still get them turned around, but you would have expected more with the obvious talent they have. I honestly think Golden is a better logistically, better organized, and is building, for the long term, a better organization.

    In college, the head coach is like what the head coach, the general manager, and the director of scouting would be in an NFL team. We know he excels in the last two, as well as excelling the the coaching motivation part. Game day coaching will improve. But overall, that’s why I harp on logistics and organization, it’s crucial to have this infrastructure and this was, imo, on of the major failings of the last regime.

    As far as the criminoles having us in their mouths, I ‘ve got a feeling their going to know what our ass tastes like in a few weeks.

Anybody clamouring over a 2nd string linebacker at FAMU trying to question whether someone knows talent or not needs to go and take a nap, you getting to cranky!

    Anyone else notice what formation the Canes were in at the 3:18 mark .. 2nd and Goal from the 5 .. 4 WR spread out, with Miller joining them .. Jacory left under center with no backs and Cleveland releasing

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfoEJglzAZI&feature=related

    Isn’t that the formation that a lot of people hated (who also hated the former OC) and said was stupid, esp. that close to the endzone?

    Almost was a TD to Streeter
    ————

    The Td to TB3 in the VPI game was in that formation as well.

    We hated it because it became a staple of our offense and the Qb’s would be asked to do 5- 7 step drops on passing downs(WHICH IS INSANE)

    Jedd Fisch uses it like it’s supposed to be used when you have suspect tackles! Quick strike plays and never more than a 3 step drop.

    Kirk Herbstreit on Joe Rose lauds Al Golden, Jacory Harris, Lamar Miller!

    Q: Can you believe Jacory Harris’ turnaround? No interceptions in the past three games.

    A: I’ve watched him every single week, and I have been really happy for him, because one of the things that you and I, and everybody else, have been perplexed by has been the fact he has so much God-given ability that over the years, it’s been inconsistent, and to see what he has been able to do up to this point, he’s been great. His leadership and his decision-making, I think, has a lot to do with why this team is able to compete and why they are where they are right now, and they’ve not shut it down. You and I talked about that last week, that one of the more impressive things has been that Al Golden has gotten this team to fight. Not everything has gone always perfectly, and yet they’ve gone out there and maintained a certain attitude, and I think that when you can do that, you can always have an opportunity to win long-term. As far as Jacory Harris is concerned, I think he deserves a lot of credit for staying the course and continuing to go out there and do what’s asked of him. … All in all, if you’re a Miami fan, you gotta like the way this team has wanted to go out there and attack. You also have to like the way Lamar Miller continues to run, averaging about six and a half yards a carry. … I challenge anybody to say who’s having a better year than Lamar Miller. I think he’s definitely a Doak Walker finalist, and I think that takes some of the pressure off Jacory and that passing game.

    That’s just stupid. Everyone knows Pakistan is not in South America, it’s in South Africa.

  236. I like how al goldie was talking about “this week, we’re going to get a different look, and it has our attention” speaking about the g-tech offense, i’m laughing cause from what i’ve seen, all the teams we’ve played this year should’ve had our/ d-co’s attention.. This is the most detailed oriented offense we’ll more than likely face all year, and with coach do noff complaining all year about guys free lancing and not knowing where to line-up, we will probably be the most undiscipline defense this offense will face all year. It’s going to be up to the individual players like spence, ray ray, vernon and hopefully finnie gets a pick, i do know this is a game where brandon mcgee might actually come up big in run support, but whatever we do, let’s not let mike williams be out on an island by himself.

    This is definitely not the time to have guys like marcus and futch standing up trying to set the edge of the defense, they will get out side on us all game long like every other team that keeps being able to run round the corner on us!

    Seriously, who gets caught for this in college. The majority of college kids drink and are underage, so for him to get caught for this/charged for this, the odds are damyum near like the lotto. That’s what they do, if it wasn’t for college kids, alcohol sales would be way down so you know the alcohol industry basically sends money in to the atf agency. Hell, most of those agencies are funded by corrupt money, the dea and the likes, that’s why they luv to make big bust, turn around and selling back to the country they traced it from and than fund more programs.
