On offense we should have a huge advantage vs Louisville, they are legit the worst Defense we'll play this season.

- Louisville is ranked 101st in Total Defense, 106th in Pass Defense (89th in Pass Defense efficiency), 60th in teams sacks with just 18 on the season, 68th in TFL's & 87th in Run Defense.

- Vs Notre Dame they gave up 423yds (230yds rushing)
- Vs FSU they gave up 522yds (382yds passing)
- Vs BC they gave up 563yds (259yds rushing)
- Vs Wake Forest they gave up 668yds (423 passing & 245 rushing)
- Vs Clemson they gave up 551yds (298yds rushing)
- Vs UVA they gave up 311yds

What that means, they suck BAAAAADDDD. So, Enos has another opportunity to exploit a really bad Defense, but with LVille they don't have the same caliber of talent that FSU has which means there's absolutely NO EXCUSE for not carving this god awful Defense up.

Enos hopefully sticks with going more Gun & utilizing the RPO, there's so much film of this Defense getting shredded all over the field with multiple concepts you'd be hard pressed to find an OC that doesn't salivate at the thought of scheming up some big chunk yard plays vs this team. JT4, Wiggins, Deejay & company should all have a big game. They don't stop the run, or the pass or rush the passer at all, LIGHT THESE BIRDS UP Enos!

Defense:

Their best playmaker is my jit Tutu Atwell, he's their best WR & they get him the ball in various ways, he has 41rec 668yds & 7TD's. They will utilize his speed to their advantage & try to get him in one on one matchups with LB's & Safeties.

Javian Hawkins is a very good & explosive RB as well, he's got 887yds & 6TD's on the season, he may be the most dangerous RB we've faced this season, they will get him the ball in the screen game & run the ball with him a lot going with cut back zones & misdirections trying to force our LB's to over pursue.

Dez Fitzpatrick is a good WR too, I would match him up with Blades all game because I think he's a bad matchup for Ivey. He's a Deep threat WR on the long ball, we better have Safety help over top with this kid & play a lot of Double High to contain them from stretching the field.

They have a good Offense & Satterfield is a good coach, he's gonna throw the kitchen sink at Manny/Baker, our Defense needs to play smart discipline football in order to slow them down, don't get too cute with exotic Blitzes because LVille's QB Micale Cunningham will run the ball a lot (think Va Tech game except better players). They're going to try to use their speed & go with the Quick passing attack to slow down our pass rush, Defense needs to force turnovers & get off the field on 3rd downs.

We can definitely beat Louisville if we get an early lead & apply pressure on them, if we play sluggish & don't put up points & allow them to hang around all game long we'll be in danger.

Last week I felt the Defense had to put the game on their shoulders & win it, they did just that. This week I feel our Offense has such a huge advantage going up against their weak Defense that they should handle their business & give us an early lead allowing our Defense to play more comfortable & pin their ears back.

To me, it's on Enos & the Offense to put us in position to win, not saying the Defense bares no responsibility, but their offense matches up with our Defense, but their Defense is no match whatsoever for our Offense.

Much like the key to last week was to stop Akers, the key to this week is to stop Hawkins. Last week's aerial threat was Terry, this week's is Atwell.

The difference is they have mobile quarterbacks. Hornibrook was a statue.

agree 100% this is way more about the O this game. We knew FSU offense was utter garbage and the D had to exploit...they did.
Flip the script here...I think the D will get gashed at times and we are simply going to have to keep up.
this game is on Enos...win or lose.

Precisely.

LVille's QB is not gonna sit in the pocket & let Rousseau, Hill, Ford, Nesta & the boys get after him all day, he's gonna take off & run the ball.

Also Satterfield is gonna Short pass us to death to neutralize the pass rush, screen game all day.

If I'm Diaz, I'm having Pinckney spy on their QB all game long to keep him from escaping when the pocket breaks down.

They throw about 10 passes a game. If throwing short passes the whole game means we have stuffed their running game

I really like the over in this game. As much as we’d love for it to not happen, you just gotta think the defense is just a tick less intense than it was last week. If Manny is a good coach, he can still make the unit successful overall, but it’ll be hard to match that intensity we saw a week ago. I think Louisville will score some points, as you correctly pointed out all their best players are on that side and Satterfield is slick. I expect them to score a couple times. And on offense, I don’t think even Enos can stop our offense against these dudes. They are BAD on that side. I think the overall talent and improvement in penalties/the OL will keep Miami ahead of the chains all day and I expect at least 30 points. Minimum.

The total is only 49. I can see this as a 31-24 game easily.

Vs Notre Dame they had 28 attempts
Vs FSU they had 28 attempts
Vs BC they had 34 attempts total with 2 QB's
Vs Wake they had 25 attempts after Cunningham got hurt

They only didn't pass much vs Clemson & UVA, but it has more to do with the matchup than what they typically do. Satterfield realizes he can't just run the ball down our throats, so of course he's gonna pass more often than he usually does because it's his only way of moving the ball effectively against us.

If they went with their conventional game plan they would be playing right into our hands, so they're going to try to keep us off balance & slow down our DLine by throwing short passes & screens more to open up the field.

El:

Agreed.

My 2 cents:

First, I'd much rather go against a defense that is poor against the run, than one who is poor against the pass, (if I had my choice). probably 98% of coaches would say the same thing, no matter what type of offense they run. fortunately, these guys are bad a both. no excuse not to put on points. and if enos wants to play ball control, no excuse not to do that either. nothing more fun for me as a QB than turning around, and handing the ball off to the TB and watch him scoot down the field at 5 yards a pop. Those were the games I didn't even need to shower afterwards.

Second, on defense. Don't miss tackles in the gaps at the LOS and hold your edges. Then, on third down if they want to go 3 step and run a lot of quick passing concepts, ok. Let's get in their face with a lot of man under, put 15 and the tall guys inside to clutter passing lanes, and let's see how that works out for them. Third down is key: Tackle well, no stupid penalties, and get off the field. But all in all, if we're seeing guys in their receivers faces, maintaining the edges, and no YAC, it means we're doing ok.

Well said bro...

After I watched about 3 games of LVille I said there's no way we don't at the very least drop 30 on'em. They don't do anything well on Defense, like not one thing lol.

This is a game that both Deejay & Cam should eat, I'm not expecting Cam to get many carries unless Deejay gets hurt or something, but if Enos was smart he would use Cam in the pass game heavy this game.

They have a bunch of South Fla boys in their secondary including CB Chandler Jones from Central who has good cover ability, but none of them can stick JT, KJ, Wiggins & Harley enough to keep us from stretching the field on them.

Blades can stick Fitzpatrick, Ivey I'm not so certain can, especially on the Deep ball.
