Bronco Mendenhall is in his third season as Virginia’s head football coach after being named the program’s 40th head coach on Dec. 4, 2015. Beats Miami just three years in, huh? Posted by: SOUP | October 20, 2018 at 12:26 PM Unfortunately, beating Miami hasn’t meant much of anything since 2005.

Old Skool - LOL. Both RIP and SOS are perfect.
Made me curious Solar, had to look it up... 2003 (JUNIOR): Completed 211 of 352 attempts for 2,419 yards and 12 touchdowns while throwing 17 interceptions...compiled a pass efficiency rating of 119.3...his completion percentage ranked seventh in Miami history for single-season completion percentage... his 211 completions ranks seventh in Miami for single-season completions...his 2,419 yards ranks 11th in Miami history for single-season passing yards...was particularly effective on third downs, completing 69 of 100 pass attempts (69%) for 706 yards converting 45 of 97 situations into first downs (46.4%) and throw-ing for two touchdowns
I’ll never forget watching that game on the ole boob tube Solar. Same emotions U just described. Hard to believe I was getting negative on the Canes in that timeframe because we lost like... 1 game! Great teams with great players and great coaching I now know. 2000-2002 just had me/us SO spoiled. I’d give anything (almost) for a season like ‘03 again!
From last blog... Posted by: solarcane | October 18, 2018 at 02:04 PM When’s the last time U saw a Canes kickoff return like that opener, Solar?!? I don’t know if I should thank you for the memories... more bummed out now about the last 15 years and current state of affairs than I’ve been in years. Dam there used to be some beautiful ball played in the OB
Anyone willing to give the benefit of the doubt and consider that (not so) Smart Mark decided that playing any QB behind the rotting corpse of an OL we trot out week after week is a recipe for physical damage, emotional & psychological damage and so figured might as well let the senior suffer??

Given all the crap we’be had to bitch about lately, I totally forgot this gem... Anyone else catch the commentators referring to the FSU turnover backpack as “Dora the Explorer”?!? Made me bust a gut

Solar - Totally happy that U r back on Da Blob. I don’t post often regardless of today, but I read the articles (someone has to 86!) and try to keep up with the “good info”. S’All Good Man! CMR ain’t getting it done here lately. But make no mistake that things were MUCH worse when Clappy left, when Randy left, and when AG left. The problem in college ball is make the wrong hire & U piss away 4 years. 2 wrong hires in a row and U lost a whole decade. Programs like Bama, Texas, Notre Dame can withstand that type of time loss. The U is only now figuring out if it can also. We all better hope CMR has it in him to right this ship.

Posted by: solarcane | October 15, 2018 at 04:21 PM U didn’t really need to be told all these “facts” right? We hold these truths to be self-evident: that the ACC is a crappy conference, that the Coastal is a crappy division, BUT that crap-ass LSU won NC’s in 1958 and 2003... ONLY. 45 years of crap football b/w Championships and only 2 at that.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | October 15, 2018 at 03:48 PM Good analysis. Not sure though that either option can make those decisions consistently and 1 can only follow thru athletically 50% of the time.

Dude - just don’t believe anyone coaches by guilt. He had no one behind Malik last season. We saw that in the Pitt debacle. Why the inconsistency in last game to this game?... idk. Could be home vs away. Could be gut. No idea. I’m just sure it wasn’t guilt.
Toggle Commented 6 days ago on In My Humble Opinion (IMHO) at Canespace
My safe, not on the hot seat thinking is U stay with Perry and take the lumps that come with playing inexperience. Playing Malik comes with a whole set of other lumps and sabotages next season (unless it’s all no more than treading water till the next savior appears). I’m a Big Ugly so I’ll harp on it till end times, but not much matters on O until the OL mans up and starts playing like they give a crap. They don’t need to be all-world or even League prospects. Just play with 1/3 of the attitude & aggression the DL plays with and we beat UVA and any other Coastal Div opponent. Sh_t! Stop playing so dam soft!

Dude - Honestly, I’m thinking the decision was more about panic than guilt. Perry couldn’t handle the situation, Richt saw the season slipping away in Q1, and made the change hoping Malik could lead a comeback. I’ll defend this decision because a) Malik has proven to be somewhat of a comeback leader in the past, and b) Malik is a better, stronger runner when the OL breaks down as was the case most of the game. The bad?... by pulling Perry, Richt denied him the chance to settle down and play his way into handling the “bright lights”. He’s so young but has 100x the upside of Rosier who, even tho I personally like him, has 0 upside being in his final season and unable to deliver a decently thrown pass, much less a W or a conf championship. So now, do we play all out for a “still possible” division champ and return to the conf champ game or play Perry 100% to get him as much experience as possible?

Posted by: CGNC | October 15, 2018 at 01:28 PM Hey CGNC! Always nice to read your posts. 1982 was Richt’s senior season. QBs on roster: Jim Kelly, Mark Richt, Bernie Kosar, Vinny Testaverde, and another guy. Kelly is NFL HOF. Bernie & Vinny need no intro’s either. Not too many guys going to get playing time competing against those three.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | October 13, 2018 at 11:09 AM Great analysis OGV. I think U r probably right, but my hope is our D doesn’t give up more than 20.
Toggle Commented Oct 13, 2018 on Game Day Blog: Miami vs Virginia at Canespace
Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | October 12, 2018 at 04:32 PM U both think our D gives up 20+?? That due to UVA’s QB & that speedster WR? Plus history of under-performance when Canes travel the last 10-15 years? I’m thinking (hoping) Canes D keeps playing at high level - aggressive & confident. 28-17 CANES

BTW - Nothing was necessary vs LSU to “open up” the long ball. WRs were open all game. “Open” vs a good to very good college defense is still a tight throw 90% of the time. We had many chances to hit on plays downfield, and did on several. But we missed on many more.

When DL > OL, QB & receivers must step up. QB didn’t. When QB is off or just average, the OL & RB must step up. Neither did. Again, the O looked decent to good Q1. But the team is mentally soft. When a few bad things happened - missed FG, crap punt, LSU big play... both O & D imploded. 11 penalties?!? How many negated a 1st down or good play? How many gave LSU a 1st down?? U can win 8-10 games playing this way but it won’t work with the big dogs.
