Thoughts on the VT game

DMoney
- Man, our players are so much better than theirs. The talent difference was glaring. There wasn't one guy at Virginia Tech I would've taken as a Miami starter. That's the only reason we won.

- There are 59 seconds left in the half. You have the best quarterback in the conference. Your kicker just banged a 49-yarder with room to spare. And you run out the clock?

It is appalling what Golden will do to protect his friend's defense. Beamer was licking his chops to go after that defense, and his offense stinks. It's sad. Golden was lucky Kaaya bailed him out on the free play.

- This team looks pretty much the same way they did in camp. That's what makes the staff's personnel decisions so frustrating.

- We used every offensive line combination except for the correct one. Darling- McDermott - Linder - Isidora - Odogwu. Gall and Brown aren't good enough right now. I don't know why it took so long to get McDermott at LG. It's been obvious since the first practice. One drive went to crap because Brown got beat at guard and then McDermott got beat at tackle.

- What is Stacy Coley doing on the bench for 3rd downs? There were multiple 3rd downs in the 4th quarter where our best playmaker sat on the sidelines.

- And why is Bush still sitting down? I didn't see him in the second half until he was smashing someone in the backfield. Stop with the rotations. Our good teams never did this crap.

- Hope Raphael Kirby is OK. He deserves to finish his senior year.

- Juwon Young is showing his talent. He is big, fast (4.58) and very aggressive. The more reps he gets, the better he will be. He's not a cerebral guy, but his talent and attitude make up for it.

- Artie Burns is making the leap. His click-and-close ability is rare for someone his size. He is just one example of pure talent winning this game.

- David Njoku is going to be a star. He's only a freshman. As he gets bigger and more comfortable, he will make some freaky plays. I like his toughness after the catch.

- Kaaya is already a star. I watch a lot of college football, and I wouldn't trade him for anyone in the country. His pocket presence keeps getting better and he throws a beautiful ball.

- Chad Thomas and Al-Quadin Muhammad are starting to get it rolling. They both have the talent to be household names.

we won the turnover battle 4-0 against a team with no talent and we had a 3 point lead woth 3 minutes left...Think about that

Miami with merely an above average coach beats that VT by 20+; the talent discrepancy was that large.
 
Beamer messed up not playing Brewer from the start and Foster messed up waiting until the 2nd half to attack the OL. Beamer is done and should be fired for tossing away back to back wins to Al.
 
Last year we were all complaining about lack sacks and turnovers. Now we get them and still complain.
 
Can someone tell coley there is no point in running the read option play if your qb NEVER keeps the ball. Against FSU and again today I was screaming for Kaaya to keep the ball. Even as slow as he is , he can run for 10yds. The whole point of the read is to keep the DE from crashing. They do it every time. Nick roles was slow as molasses but he would run it a few times a game with Eagles and pick up easy yards.
 
Once again, penalties....should have been 37-20 with Walton TD being called back cause of a PI call.... thats what kept it close...dumb ass penalties...
 
BTW, the other Miami third-down conversion today? Walter Tucker's first carry of the season.

With all respect, wtf are you talking about here? He's a damn bright and instinctive player. Considering the defense @ Miami has recently been among the worst in program history, the lack of player development and the clusterfluck with personnel groupings.

Saying a particular player isn't cerebral, is quite a stretch.

You apparently didn't read DMoney's post. This game was closer than it should've been. You're part of that crowd that's proud we have a winning record. I see a team that's going to get steam rolled by Clemson next week. Damn slurpers.

I love the guy and have since high school. I think he will be very good and he looked great today. But I don't see him as an instinctual player like a Vilma or Spence.

IMO, his gifts are physical talent and toughness. He reminds me of a rich man's Spencer Adkins.

That line-up stills puts a guy at LT that can't handle it (Darling) and a guy at RT that is just not consistent enough to be good at RT (Sunny).

At this point, you have to put the young guy (St. Louis) in there. He's not going to be any worse than Darling/McDermott/Odogwu/Isidora have been @ tackle. You have to move Linder to his best position (RG) - and you have to get better athletes in there (Knighton).

YOU CANNOT KEEP ROLLING OUT AN OL that is essentially 4 starting GUARDS and a Center.

But you have never seen St. Louis. He still gets beat too much, more than Sonny. I agree he is the future and needs to be worked in, but they should do it slowly.
