Only 8 hours to go until we see the Hurricanes put a beat down on Ga Tech :
For UNCs sake, go Tech!!
This game would go a long way towards getting us noticed and will almost guarantee a ticket into the ACC championship. This game is almost as huge as Sunday's game to me. Time for the Canes to get back to where they belong.
If we win tonight, and VT and UVa both win on Saturday, then we clinch a spot in the ACC title game.
This game will be a big step in determining exactly what kind of head coach Randy Shannon is.
Miami is actually playing for something for the first time under his tenure.
Recruiting a bunch of "Miami boys" doesn't impress me....if the Canes want to prove they're on the way back to being a serious contender...it starts tonight.
That option GT runs is tough...
im afraid to say, but this is going to be a very tough game for us to win tonight. GT has a great defense, and that triple option they run is very effective. but nonethenless, GO CANES
Im hoping our speed on defense will help against the triple option.
remember that nebraska game? they had such a good option team, but once they played a team with speed (miami), they got crushed.
Yes I do:hi5:. Thats what im hoping for tonight. Does anybody know if the quarterback Nesbitt is playing tonight?
I heard he was gonna try to play
go canes! it'll be interesting how coach uses the quarterbacks tongiht
Go Yellow Jackets!!!!!!!
We're going to get steamrolled tonight.
Not looking good at all so far.
Jonathan Dwyer is a machine!
The Canes are getting owned.
i hate being right
Robert Marve sucks so bad... Put Jacory back in
Couldnt agree more. When Jacory is looking good they ake him out and put in Marve. **** this :shakeno:
I really wish Josh Nesbitt would have been healthy all year. GT would have had a great season.
Always next year.
I'm loving the option tonight folks.
Paul Johnson has done a real good job with this football team.
TD GT! :
We got assraped with a sandpaper condom tonight. Reminded me of the Larry Coker days.
Thank you 'Canes!!
UNC wins out, ACC title game here we come!
But i also think our defensive gameplan was horrbile. All GT did was run on us, we didn't adjust our D until the second half.
I officially want to kill myself...WOW, I have no other words then that. It's shame to all us Cane fans. I dont know about the rest of you but i sat down and watched till the end, knowing we were going to loose after a ****ty *** performance. Just like last year with Tashard Choice, they ran all over us. Nix is horrible, I hate him. I really hope he gets tanked after the year. The team couldnt tackle for ****. And I'm really not liking Marve to much, his INT was so pathetic. Jacorys wasnt to good either but I prefrer Jacory. And why stop running??? The drive where they did the onside kick and we had excellent field pos. and could of made it 10-7 and gave us some more momentum... JJ was eating them up on the ground and instead of running with all the RB talent them got, they decide to pass...Im so fed up with Nix...
All and all....
I felt like the LSU game a few years back....but this time I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel...
I am not as hopeful as everyone else that Shannon will pull it through. I DON'T LIKE HIM. I still say give the man more time to prove himself, we've improved from last year so not everything is a loss. At least we're bowl bound.
Va Tech still holds the tiebreaker...
As much of a non-believer I am in Randy Shannon...it's hard for me to pin this steamrolling on him. I was almost sure GT was going to thump Miami pretty bad.
For all the Robert Marve lovers...he stinks...but he needs better coaching. He's an inaccurate passer, throws everything 90 mph, has no touch or feel to his game, and has regressed. Throws the most boneheaded interceptions I've seen since...well...Kyle Wright and Kirby Freeman. He played better his first 3 games of his career than he has the past 7....Nix is awful...
This is the same mistake prone, lame offense that was witnessed under Coker....the WR's drop too many passes...the QB's throw too many picks.
Miami looked intimidated by Georgia Tech....they couldn't tackle...didn't want to after Dwyer ran over a couple of defenders.
Miami had something to play for finally and all they brought to the fight was lack of effort and the same ol' mistakes they've made for going on 5 years now.
Everytime Miami squeaks out a win over some team that had more to do with them beating themselves than Miami beating them....here comes the "Canes are back" rhetoric...I got news for you...Miami is a long way from being "back"...none of Miami's opponents give a rats *** about where Rivals has Miami's recruiting classes ranked...they're just going to line up and bust 'em in the mouth and make those recruits block, tackle, run, pass, and catch.
GT played with an injured QB, a decimated offensive line that at times featured a 254 pound offensive tackle, etc...and imposed their will on Miami...the game wasn't even as close as the score...resulting the 2nd most rushing yards ever given up by Miami....
This is what I mean by the difference in Miami and the best teams in the country is that the best teams in the country make it look easy on offense...while Miami can never get out of their own way.
Even middle of the pack teams execute offensive plays so much more consistant than Miami does....and not just referring to this Miami team either...so save the "but they're young" comment...I'm referring to Miami's offense since Brock Berlin left....until Miami gets better play from the QB's and WR's...the defense will always be on the field too much.
I don't think Miami has been the same since that 40-3 steamrolling by LSU a few years ago...Miami is better than they were last year...is that the new standard?
Hmph. All of the sites with the standings have UNC ahead of Tech because they have a better overall record.
or how about the 4th and goal from the one yard line, we had 3 down lineman on the line, and we had 4 linebackers 5 yards away from the line. im sitting there yelling "they are gonna qb sneak", anybody could of known it was going to be a fullback dive, or qb sneak, shannon is not the answer.
I'll admit, I was one foot on the Shannon bandwagon...after last nights game...I'm off.
We beat 5 average teams at their worst, and when we played a real team, we got trainwrecked.
Blah. Makes me sick. Is this the new Hurricane standard? Win 8 games against bad teams and be blown out when we play an actual team?
Terrible. Absolutely terrible. Next season is going to be even worse.
