Florida St. Gameday - Week 8

Cheer as loud as you can for as long as you can. No matter what is going on, be loud. No matter where you are, be loud. Be loud for the touchdowns. Be loud for the hits. Be loud for no reason at all. Be loud.

Be with them all night.

This could be your last chance to cheer for the Canes against a ranked team at home this year. If you can't make some noise tonight, with the Canes facing their in state rivals the Florida St. Seminoles, when can you?

All season people have been *****ing about having to get up too early for mid afternoon home games in the hot sun instead of the night games we prefer. Now we got one. Now the House that Joe Robbie Built will get the chance to show what it's truly made out of. The Orange Bowl is gone, but the energy it carried for 70 years of Hurricane football is still out there somewhere. It's still with us.

Remember what it was like to hear Jay Rokeach announce a touchdown. Remember hearing Phil Collins "In The Air Tonight." Remember "$10 no blocky" . Remember the chants and the cheers. Remember the Orange Bowl.


These things don't just disappear forever. We carry them with us for the rest of our lives, even if the old building and many of the people who made it special are gone.

"Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things...And no good thing ever dies."

It's time to start bringing these memories, these emotions, these feelings and these moments into Sun Life Stadium. We are 3 touchdown underdogs at home to our in state rival. This could be the new stadium's first big moment tonight. It's time to start building this stadium's legacy, so that 70 years from now people will ask you to "Remember Sun Life" before a big game.

Al Golden should throw a party if this team gets to .500

Herbstreit and Musburger are calling the game. Let's show them what a real party looks like.


Where: Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Dolphins/Dolphin/LandShark/Sun Life Stadium

Florida St. Seminoles (6-1) vs. Miami Hurricanes (4-3)

W​hen: 8:00pm/et

How: TV

4 storylines for UM in this game:

1. Will Stephen Morris have a Willis Reed moment?
2. Can the defense hold FSU's scoring in check like they did UNC?
3. Can Mike James carry the load?
4. Will the receiving corps step up in a big game?

Morris most likely wont play. It isn't realistic to ask your QB, who uses his mobility in the pocket to create time and space to throw the ball, to play 1 week after spraining his ankle. However, it gives us our best chance to win.

As many yards as they gave up, the Defense actually had it's best game last week when they held UNC to 18 points. If you squint your eyes that's big accomplishment. They'll need an even bigger effort in order for us to have a chance.

Mike James is the kind of character guy who has a really big game in him against a superior opponent. He'll have to shoulder the bulk of the carries if Duke is as hurt as has been let on. He put us on his back against Georgia Tech, he'll need to pull more than his fair share this week just to keep it close.

Enough ******** around with these guys and the drops. They need to step up huge for us because we won't be able to dink and dunk all game against these guys. We're going to need big explosive plays.

Last time they met: November 12, 2011. FSU won 23-19

What people were saying during the subsequent meltdown:

Had every chance to get a win. It was clearly a game vs two bad teams

We did the things Golden promised would stop. Tons of turnovers and penalties

And the 2 QB system is ******* moronic

Totally forgot about that two qb system we did with Morris and Harris. It ruined at least one drive that I remember. This was the first game where our special teams looked terrible. It had been the only solid unit all year to that point. Benjamin had dumb muffed punt, and Greg Reid returned a Punt for a TD just before the half.

We were pretty down on our chances about winning and yet played a very close game and almost came out with the victory.

Tomahawk Nation

What they're saying:

Bukkake Elliot said:
The Hurricanes are averaging almost 17 incompletions a game. That's a lot of stopped clock. It's not that Morris can be erratic (he can) as much as it is that they drop a good number of balls (Dorsett, who has very good speed, is a big culprit here). Of course, that's is not guaranteed to continue against Florida State. They'll probably be fired up like crazy and catch every last one.

Can't argue with any of that.

Miami Notes:

1. Miami players say they ain't skurred of FSU.
2. Golden says players should be mad FSU is better than us.
Stephen Morris has been limited in practice all week.

Florida St.

1. Fisher says UM-FSU still a big rivalry.

2. FSU's game prep isn't changed with Miami's QB uncertainty.
FSU's defense plans to give Duke grown man treatment.

"Grown Man Treatment"? Who talks like that?

The clip of the crowd is from the a&m game in '07 when McCarthy catches the tipped INT.
Lets do this!!!

We need a big game here, something to believe in.
**** looking back I'm so ****ed i mean we out yarded them we just lost cuz of stupid untimely turnovers and when you allow two returns for touchdowns it doesn't help...
Sorry, I hate to be that guy, but I have zero connection with Sun Life stadium. It will never feel like our true home. I'll be there rooting, but it will never be like the Orange Bowl.
About the injury report: I think I read that Ben Jones had season-ending surgery.
