UNC is having a 1984 Canes season. Score at will, pray you have the ball last. We have to just make sure we have the ball most of the time and especially last in the game if it comes down to it.

We scared FSU into the 3rd quarter before Duke got hurt. If we pound the ball against FSU, and a lot of teams have run well against them this year, we can take them. But I don't wanna just scare them this year. They are beatable. And we just might be good enough to do it. But everybody, coaches, players and fans have to do their part.

Best thing about this game? The fans have absolutely no reason not to support Jim Kelly and come to homecoming game. VT defense is stellar compared to UNC. 6-3 looks reachable to me. If somehow the run game and the pass game show up on the same day, and the defense plays like this or even tad better, we could give FSU a run for their money. These Canes were a better team after the dominant Cincy win and stringing this back to back, on the road in Blacksburg, they are an even better team tonight. If they take care of business against UNC, and I think they will CONVINCINGLY, that FSU game will generate a ton of interest, all good for the program and recruiting. We will be relevant again. We sneak out a win against FSU, dare say it but we would be close to being all the way back.

Great win, just what the Doctor ordered. Coaches outcoached the Hokies, Players outhit and out played them on both sides of the ball, and we coasted to an easy victory. Got greedy at end and really wanted to see the shutout. Maybe too much to ask but I feel happy about my Canes for the first time in a long time. So happy for Duke. He is capable of this type of performance against anyone. Kaaya numbers not great but didn't need them tonight. Those take aways after half time were sweet. Totally dominant win! It's great to be a Miami Hurricane again (well it was always great but you know what I mean). I think we can be carried on Duke's back to the ACC coastal. He was awesome tonight. Great vision. Saw a so-called future NFL corner back whiff on several tackles against him. When we are rolling on the ground like this, we need to just ride it for four quarters or until they stop it. VT never did. I remember how dominant the Dolphins were controlling the ball (and clock) and winning games in the seventies. I wish we would be more like that when we are on a roll. What I saw tonight was a team that played an aggressive 3-4. There were 5 men on the line tonight and I think that really helps. You show both at the line and one of them is probably coming but you don't show which one. Plus, I saw a lot of blitzes. A 3-4 is a good scheme. A lot of pro teams are very successful with it. But you have to be aggressive with it and we were bringing it and laying the wood on those Hokies all night. Great freaking win!

CR that's true but we haven't done anything like this in a decade or so. It is sweet especially against VT and Beamer.

Come on, you don't put him in for fourth and goal? WTF This belief that Gus Edwards belongs on the same field as Duke needs to go.

Lurker - here are the records: Game record - 566 yards - Stephen Morris vs. NC State, 9/29/12 [26-49] SEASON 3,642 Bernie Kosar, 1984 [262-416] CAREER 9,565 Ken Dorsey, 1999-2002 [668-1,153] I don't think Morris record will ever be broken. That guy could throw the deep ball better than anyone. He struggled in the intermediate area necessary to keep drives going. In some ways, under appreciated in his junior year. He was magical before he was injured. Not so much after that. Single season may be safe as well for this year. First two games kind of set that back. Kaaya will get his chances tomorrow. Bud will blitz during this game. If the line blocks, and the running backs pick up the blitz, our receivers should do well. To get the career record in three years, Kaaya would really have to perform beyond imagination to go over 9,565 yards? That's an average of 318 yards a game. Don't think that happens. 4 years have to average - 239 yards a game. Tall order but doable.
Looks like the weather will be okay. Kickoff should be about 46 with clear skies and a light 6 mph wind. Wind chill will be 43. That is cold for Floridians but really not so bad for up here. One the guys start running around, they won't feel it. I posted the Kaaya stats earlier because I knew he was playing great and those did confirm that. I mean by God this program has waited a long time for a QB like this and he should be the talk of the town. Remember the lost decade of QB U stuck with guys like Kyle Wright (not bad until he got beat up and lost his confidence), Kirby Freeman, Robert Marve, Jacory Harris, and Stephen Morris? Kaaya is a flat out stud and I predict he will break all UM records if he plays here four years.
Enemy Scouting Report on how well Kaaya has played this year: The Freshman Quarterback Brad Kaaya (6-4, 209, Fr.) is a true freshman quarterback whom Miami fans should be very excited about. He has completed 63% of his passes for 1,806 yards this season. He has 16 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. He is one of just 12 quarterbacks in the country who have already thrown for 1,800 yards and 16 touchdowns this year, and the fact that he has done it as a true freshman makes it even more impressive. Kaaya started out a bit slow, but it’s hard to ignore his progress: @Louisville: 17-29 179 yards, 1 TD - 2 INTs FAMU: 12-22 177 yards, 2 TDs - 2 INTs Ark. State: 16-24 342 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT @Nebraska: 28-42 359 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INTs Duke: 20-34 223 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT @GT: 16-25 245 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs Cincinnati: 17-24 286 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT Through his first two games, Kaya was 29-of-51 for 356 yards, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. That’s a QB rating of 119.22. However, his performance really started going up beginning with the Arkansas State game. Since that game, he is 97-of-149 for 1,455 yards, with 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. That’s a QB rating of 169.21, which is very impressive for a guy his age. How good are the pass defenses that Kaaya has faced? Here’s a looking at the pass efficiency defense ranking of each team they’ve faced. Louisville: #2 FAMU: 1-AA Arkansas State: #53 Nebraska: #8 Duke: #5 GT: #85 Cincinnati: #124 Kaaya has faced a couple of duds in Georgia Tech and Cincinnati, but he has also faced three of the most efficient pass defenses in the country. His numbers against those three teams: 65-of-105 for 761 yards, with six touchdowns and four interceptions. His QB rating in those three games is 134.02. That’s not great, but it’s hardly bad either, and he took a big step forward against Nebraska and Duke after struggling in his first career game at Louisville. It’s impossible to predict how a true freshman quarterback is going to do on a game-by-game basis, but I think it’s clear that Kaaya is a very talented player, and his ceiling is higher than any quarterback Miami has had in the last decade or more. He might come into Lane Stadium and struggle in his first Thursday night game. After all, he is 0-3 on the road this season. However, he’s already played road games at night at Louisville, Nebraska and Georgia Tech, and two of those places are tough places to play. I think he’ll be more ready for the Thursday night Lane Stadium atmosphere than any other true freshman could possibly be. Kaaya, combined with Miami’s young skill position talent at wide receiver and at running back, could give Miami a very powerful offense in a year or two. It’s good now, but their ceiling is pretty high, assuming the Canes continue to have a solid offensive line. http://virginiatech.sportswar.com/free-content/2014/10/21/hokies-host-miami-on-thursday-night/

I am with Lurker on this whole banner thing. It is absolutely wrong. First, when you come to visit someone, you leave your family squabbles at home. That's just basic decency. Second, it is entirely disrespectful to the players. You going to do that to Duke Johnson, who gave part of his knee for your watching pleasure? You going to do that to Kaaya who is the best QB we have had since Dorsey? Really? That's in any way fair to him as he is trying to win the game for U? I don't care if the guy is a Veteran or not. I appreciate his service but he needs a class in enemy recognition because his action is bush league and not in the best interest of THIS team trying to win THIS game!

From the blog - Obviously the numbers have inflated under Golden, but this could be reflective of the overall talent level. Overlay that with the number of 4 and 5 star players on each team's Week 1 roster: 2007: 45 2008: 42 2009: 42 2010: 40 2011: 28 2012: 28 2013: 23 2014: 24 Notice the lack of 4 and 5 star players that Golden recruited the last two years? That is a significant difference. I think the real issue is the DL and has been for the last 6 years. Forston flames out his last year or so here, and we haven't had that dominant Defensive lineman since. There hasn't been a Ted Hendrix, Rubin Carter, Jerome Brown, Warren Sapp, Cortez Kennedy, Russell Maryland, Danny Stubbs, Rusty Maderis type of guy who can dominate his side of the line in a long time. Until that gets fixed we will be an average team. You have to have that difference maker on the line to excel at defense.

UNC - FSU type offense Cincy bad Defense.

This is some game between FSU and ND. Both teams playing at a high level.
Toggle Commented 5 days ago on Things That Need Fixing at Canespace
I don't know. I hope so. I said cautiously optimistic. Truth is we have a good chance to win if we play the aggressive D we played against Duke. We have a 50-50 chance if we play passive D and try to rely too much on Kaaya. The strength of their D are the corner backs. That is why we need to ride Duke and Yearby.

VT ran for 26 yards against Pitt. 26 yards. Not if we play the Duke game defense, how exactly is VT going to score more than 21 points. And don't you think Duke and Kaaya are worth 21 points? I think Duke should be fed the ball against VT, 25 plus runs, and we beat VT. I know that doesn't fit with the idea of Golden getting canned but VT is just not very good this year.

UNC scores with 11 seconds left. Seems like they score at least 40 a game. Reminds me of us in 1984.
Toggle Commented 5 days ago on Things That Need Fixing at Canespace
Did you watch VT last Thursday? Not exactly a juggernaut offense. I am staying cautiously optimistic. I think there is more than enough talent to hold them down and Kaaya and Duke are worth at least 21 points a game which should be good enough.

But DNo is working on making the necessary adjustments to shut down VT. I read that somewhere...hoping that is true.
