It’s Monday. So, let’s start our week with some Canes stuff. Here we go:

Canes lose first game of the season, falling to Florida State 20-19

Ugh. UGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *filth flarn filth*

I went to the game as a fan, not blogger, so Jerry did all the heavy lifting this week. Props to him. Tweeting, Recapping, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is A LOT for a gameday. Seriously, try it sometime. It’s a lot. Anyways, the links:

The always wonderful The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly team grades

Justin Dottavio gave a coach’s eye to the X’s and O’s of some of the key plays from the FSU game.

After a bit of silence, I wrote this piece about Miami not letting FSU beat them twice.

Here are the highlights from the ACCDN:

With postponements and other fallout from Hurricane Matthew, the Coaches and AP top 25 polls won’t be released until Monday afternoon. So check back later for those.

Time to bounce back.

Up next: vs North Carolina

With the bye week behind us, there are no days — and no games — off anymore. Up next is North Carolina. Yeah, they lost BAD to Virginia Tech last Saturday, but the Tar Heels have plenty of talent, starting with QB Mitch Trubisky, who happens to be one of the most accurate and prolific passers in America this year (VT game notwithstanding).

If you’re wondering about the point spread for this game, look no further:

So, oddsmakers think that the Canes are a touchdown better than the Tar Heels this week. We’ll see where that line goes throughout the week.

Brad Kaaya injured, to miss practice time per reports

Adding injury to the insult of another loss to FSU, Miami QB Brad Kaaya sustained a shoulder injury that will probably have him miss some practice time this week.

Regardless of your feelings in the aftermath of the FSU game, let me remind you that Brad Kaaya is the franchise, and BY FAR the best QB on this roster. Missing him for an extended amount of time would be an issue, for sure. Hopefully, Rosier makes strides in the time he’s running with the first team, and Kaaya’s injury doesn’t keep him out too long.

Quick Hitters

Just a couple other things for you:

SBNation Analytics guru Bill Connelly’s new S&P+ ratings have the Canes 14th. They fell slightly from 10th know what.

Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post wrote this piece, with plenty of notes for you.

Pro Football Focus gave out grades for Miami-FSU.

That’s all I’ve got for you today.

Leave last game in the past, and move forward with the rest of this season, and this week, guys.

Go Canes
