Let's get it Canes!

4 more 4 U

What's good Legion/Canespace? Go wreck V-Tech this weekend; still not sure if I'm going to watch game this weekend.

Old Skool

Randy will be bringing a condominium sized dog-house to the University of Florida.
Posted by: TonyCane | October 29, 2017 at 08:28 PM

Yes. It'll very be interesting to see how he handles the FU credit card gang.

Go Canes!

Does anyone think Randy has a shot at this job after this season?

I don’t see how he’d ever get considered.

Old Skool

No. He's a placeholder. He'd only be hired if the administration and alums thought the program was out of control. He's the Robert Mueller of football coaches.

UMike

Even if he wins out I don't think they hire him. They have the funds to go get a name and/or a real coach.

UMike

I'm watching the game on TV and the accouncer said Miami is last in the country in points off of turnovers

UMike

Berrios was the deep back in the "victory formation"...normally that is a sure tackler from the D side of the ball. I wonder if this was a nod to Berrios being from North Carolina

Go Canes!

Dolphins trade Ajayi

CaneRock

I don't think the Gators have it like that...if they did, they wouldn't be trying to screw McElwain out of His buyout money. $7M to get em' out of His CSU contract, $12.5M to get em' out of His UF contract...basically $20M to hire & fire em'...idiots.

RCCF

For as much HELL as Randy catches from the Fans, U would think Fans would listen to the actual players....I happen to be friends on social media with Real Players and they speak the exact opposite of Randy..

- Not being able to pick his staff
- Nevin Shapiro
- Losing
- and much as U hate to hear it (Him being Black) cost him his Job

Anything Else is Just Fan Speak!!

Let Randy Live Sheesh.....He is a CANE

Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled 12% Program We WIN Ova Here!!

Go Canes!

I disagree CR. They have a gigantic booster base and they have money to burn.

I think they did what anyone would do. They leveraged the bullish*t lies the coach made up about death threats to get rid of a guy thye knew they made a mistake on and saved money at the same time.

UF is a Top 10 job, they will have a ton of coaches lining up for it.

And everything else aside, I don't think Randy has a shot because they need someone who change them offensively. They've been awful since the day Tebow left and even then it was all him.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: RCCF | October 31, 2017 at 09:58 AM

I could argue that him being black got him his job.

RCCF

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | October 31, 2017 at 10:14 AM

I could too, but those aren't my words those are Players who were under him words... he clearly stated 15 kids left with Randy for a reason and that is Fact!

RCCF

I don't think he got the job because he was black tho, he got it because he was Cheap! and they thought he would be a Puppet! When that didn't work out he became the Heel!

canezilla

ANY CHANCE OF SHANNON STAYING ON UF STAFF AFTER THEY HIRE A COACH?

UMike

RS did NOT lose his job because he was black, that's ridiculous. He did some good but eventually failed. Just like Coker and Golden. Results costs him his job. Bad hires costs him his job etc.

CaneRock

Go Canes, McElwain was an offensive coach and they struggled. To me it's not whether they should hire an offensive or defensive HC, to me they need to hire a HC who has His priorities in order...their off the field problems are way worse than their X & O problems.

MLAlumni1970

HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL YOU CANESPACERS!

IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!

GOING BACK TO BED. BRONCHITIS, HEAD COLD, AND SO ON.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike right on Brotha

Terrance Sullivan

And I will add if Coach Richt don't meet the desired results he will be replaced over time. And Saturday night is another litmus test game.

Go Canes!

Posted by: CaneRock | October 31, 2017 at 11:00 AM

All valid points CR.

Aside from Meyer, every guy they’ve picked has crashed and burned.

Let’s hope that trend continues!

CaneRock

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | October 31, 2017 at 11:24 AM

True.

Go Canes!

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | October 31, 2017 at 11:24 AM

Pluses:

No arrests
Players love him
Great representative
Kids graduating
First year bowl winner
Undefeated
Top 6-8 ranking
Top 3 recruiting class
Great fundraiser
Will never look elsewhere


Negatives:

Soup thinks we suck and he can’t call plays
Epi doesn’t like his tempo

So far, I think he’s reaching the desired results.

30CINCO

For us in particular, it won't mean a whole lot what happens tonight. ..If we win every game by one, my guess is we'll be in (the playoffs)

Susan Miller Degnan @smillerdegnan
7m
That was Mark Richt on the playoffs

UMike

Take away those 4 straight losses and he is reaching his desired results lol...BUT, there is clearly improvement even if some of us aren't totally satisfied. Last year 3 losses we're by a combined 11 points, this year so far we have won those close games. I do believe he will need to hire a legit OC to take us to the next level.

RCCF

UMike- those aren't my thoughts buddy... I mean I do think that the Puppet part is true but as far as his skin ehhhhhhh that is a coin flip.
I wouldn't pull the race card on this issue as much as I would pull the BS staff and school shenanigans card.. but to say that him being black had (0) to do with it is is kind of blind eyeing.. It may not be 100% true but it definitely isn't 100% false.

Again I got that info straight from players on my friendliest on social media these are not RCCF direct thoughts.

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 12:36 PM

We’ve won 12 straight and are ranked sixth!!

UMike: Yeah but remember 13 games ago?

CoCane

RCCF,

You're right. The former player I went to high school with told me the same thing. I posted that year's ago.

UMike

Go...that is all great and I am happy about it and enjoying it, but doesn't mean we don't have question marks. Of course I remember 13 games ago, why wouldn't a fan remember an ugly 4 game skid? You spoke of desired results as a coach at Miami, that includes last year and those games. We are light years ahead of the Golden years, but we got work to do.

RCCF

Posted by: CoCane | October 31, 2017 at 01:02 PM

Im not tryna stir the racial pot as it is enough of that today but real is real... Randy didn't have much support the kids LOVED him, but the staff not so much..

His Royal Dudeness

Randy's staff was a shoe string budget, but his failures were complete failures, like strength and conditioning. As far as race goes, you may be right that it had at least a little bit to do with it, but it also had at least a little to do with his hiring. If Miami didnt hire him, people would have cried racism also. Bottom line Randy deserved a HC job at the time he was hired, the problem is that no one should start their 1st HC job at a big program like Miami. Some will succeed, some will fail but its a big gamble for everyone. It would have been better for Randy to start off at a UCF or USF or even go to another school as a DC for another year or 2.

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 01:07 PM

I guess that’s where we’re different. I could care less about a four game skid midway through a head coaches first season. Especially a stretch where we played the three games in 12 days and by the end had virtually no healthy bodies left.

Care more about how this coach won five straight after that. Would allow anyone to quit or lose focus. Now we’ve won seven straight this year.

Look at FSU this year. Took some tough beats early and lost a key player. Now the coach has lost his team that’s tanking down the stretch, losing to Boston freaking College by 32.

Gators? Same thing and their coach got fired.

We’re flawed. So what

All we do is win when everyone else is losing.

Terrance Sullivan

Win the Coastal, Win ACC, Win Major Bowl Games, Get to Playoff, Win National Championship. Those are remaining litmus tests.

TheeMackJones

For the love of Yoda and Buddha! Cane good ol' boys STILL CONTINUE to make Mr. Onion Head the bloody FALL GUY!!! hUh.

The bottom line- Is Mr. Onion Head was a FOURTH of perhaps FIFTH option as head coach! Nothing more, nothing less. Mr. Onion Head, also, was NOT ready to be a head coach at a school like his Alma Mater. dUh.

And as RCCF opined, Mr. Onion Head was SEVERLY UNDERMINED by the powers that be running the university! Yikes.

Never-the-less, do continue to CRAP all over that Mr. Onion Head! hUh

TheeMackJones

So far, I think he’s reaching the desired results.

Posted by: Go Canes! | October 31, 2017 at 11:55 AM

Go figure. And YOU were-STILL- the PAR EXCELLANCE Golden Boy apologist! hUh. Matter of fact, you said your BOY Golden was ' reaching the desired results ' after the 2013 season. And college football HISTORY has PROVEN you wrong about the Golden FLEECE!

Terrance Sullivan

What part of winning Saturday night as another litmus test did you fail to understand. U know Coker, Shannon, nor Golden never won the Coastal, much less the ACC. At least Richt like Coker have won bowl games since we joined the ACC since July 1,2004. Shannon and Golden didn't. But all the other points above are. Valid. Winning the bowl game, beating FSU. Are important now need to win ACC Coastal.

TheeMackJones


I do believe he will need to hire a legit OC to take us to the next level.

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 12:36 PM


Mark Richt will NEVER hire a worthy OC. Never! For instance, one of his main STIPULATIONS in taking the Miami job was that he would CALL PLAYS and all that. dUh.

So please cease with all that EMPTY chatter about Richt giving up the play calling and hiring a competent OC. Because it AIN'T going to happen as long as he's the head coach!!!!!!!!!!! hUh.

UMike

I didn't say he would, but unless something changes drastically, we will not be winning titles with his offense. Unless we get a top notch qb maybe

Go Canes!

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | October 31, 2017 at 01:51 PM

It was just messing with Soup and Epi buddy. I know how important Saturday is.

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 02:12 PM

Pretty much nobody does without one.

Terrance Sullivan

Ok Cool Go Canes!

UMike

As it stands right now, how got the better end of the deal, Miami or UGA? I think we will have a clear answer to this message after these next two weeks

Go Canes!

💥 Most Explosive Offenses (our formula)

1 Arizona
2 OU
3 UCF
4 Stanford
5 OK St
6 UGA
7 SMU
8 Miami
9 Ole Miss
10 Notre Dame
11 Missouri

UMike

Go Canes..do you honestly believe that list and where we are ranked?

WWIN

Posted by: RCCF | October 31, 2017 at 01:10 PM

Racism still exists although some people like to believe that it doesn't... IJS

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 02:58 PM

This is an absolutely absurd way to compare. And absurd is the nicest possible way to say it.

UMike

Is it? Lol this is a blog we compare absurd crap all the time lol...

Where do you guys think we land tonight in the playoff rankings?

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 03:00 PM

Yes. Maybe a little low.

UMike

I think we will be low too, we haven't play anybody.

IrishCane

Last year at this time we were 4-4. Now 7-0. I’ll take that and the 12% bus any day!

Sarasota 'cane

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 02:58 PM

This is a moot point since UM is never in the market for guys like Kirby. UM gets their coaches on the "dented can" aisle of the store. That's not necessarily a bad thing as Mark Richt and Butch Davis were available when me made our selection. Mike Leach was available the last time we made a selection. But the reality is UM is never gonna get the "blue-chip" phenom coach. It's just not gonna happen.

Go 'canes!!

UMike

Sota...that may all be true...but doesn't give me ur opinion on the question lol

RCCF

Im more worried about Fancy Jersey's and our lack of Success in them.
PLEASE Break the Fancy Pants Curse!!

or

Did the Bowl Game Fix That?
Were They Fancy or Was it Just the Shoes??

RCCF

I think we are #7 on the Playoff Board (sadly)

those slow starts MUST Cease!!

Someone has to beat the Brakes off our 1st Half of Ball...
We Play too Slow and Sluggish..
Winning is Everything but Point Spread is Playoff Worthy..

NEXT GEAR Boys!!

12%

Sarasota 'cane

I would further add Umike that the question that you asked is for UGA fan to answer. Did THEY make the right decision letting Richt go and hiring Kirby Smart?

Did Miami make the right decision hiring Richt? I would say today, yes.

Go 'canes!!

Sarasota 'cane

Sota...that may all be true...but doesn't give me ur opinion on the question lol

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 03:30 PM

I realized I had not answered your question and was typing when you posted this!! LOL!!

Go 'canes!!

Posted by: RCCF | October 31, 2017 at 03:36 PM

I beg to differ. Miami will probably be ranked... No. 9. Perhaps No. 10. OUCH!

1. Roll Tide Roll

2. Georgia

3. Ohio St.

4. Wisconsin

5. Clemson

6. Notre Dame ( Yes, the mighty Fighting Celts. )

7. Penn. St.

8. Oklahoma

9. Miami, Florida Hurricanes

10. Oklahoma St.

The good thing is Miami has the next two weeks to PROVE to the nation and the selectors, that they are collectively WRONG and all that. Also, the Sooners and the Cowboys meet this Saturday. So one of those teams will have lost NUMBER TWO by Saturday evening. hUh. Again, as long as Miami takes care of business Saturday night against Va. Tech. Then Miami will eventually move up in the rankings which MATTER the most. What!

His Royal Dudeness

Richt did what he could do at UGA, Smart is coming in with fresh new ways to do stuff and its paying off, but Richt left UGA at least twice as good as he found Miami, I really dont think thats up for debate. Is Miami twice as good as Richt found it already? Probably. He has completely changed the culture at Miami and is laying down a solid foundation for the future. My hope, as it has been since I advocated for him early, is that at Miami, the road to stacking talent and winning games is easier. There's no Florida, no Spurrier, no Meyer, no Saban or any number of who the hot SEC programs are. If Richt's UGA competed in the ACC Coastal, they'd have been Coastal champs about 10 times already.

UMike

Mack that sounds about right. However of we manage to win out we are in the top 4... Imo

TheeMackJones

A note of importance. Miami has DROPPED in these three college football computer rankings- ESPN ( No. 16 ), Sagarin's ( No. 18 ) and S&P Power rankings ( No. 14 ). Yet in an EXTREME anomaly. Miami still remains No. 6 in Nolan Warren's ELO Chess rating. hUh. And believe it or not. The play-off selectors employ these computer rating systems. Yikes.

Go Canes!

I think the committee will have UGA first, Bama second and the Irish and Clemson in the Top four.

UMike

VT has a great secondary and Foster will bring the heat, so hopefully we get the TE involved and use Homer in the pass game. We can't use slant routes 80% of the time and beat VT. I would like to see us hit Thomas deep early

TheeMackJones

Arguably speaking the next two weeks, in Miami football history, are probably the MOST IMPORTANT ever- from the standpoint of playing in it's first ACC title game and playing in the college football play-offs! In other words, Miami is in a two game play-off beginning with Va. Tech. dUh. I just hope the coaches and players are up for a most CRITICAL CHALLENGE!!!!!!

UMike

Dam... another vehicle attack in NY. I swear at this point I hope I don't have grandkids, this world is crazy

TheeMackJones

Posted by: RCCF | October 31, 2017 at 03:36 PM

Miami desperately needs Richards to have an All-American-esque type of performance. I believe Richards will be the DECIDING FACTOR, along with other gridiron factors.

UMike

AR only had 1 catch on the UNC game and I think Foster will game plan for him. We need Thomas, Berrios, Herndon etc to step up. If we hit Thomas deep a couple times AR will get freed up some

TheeMackJones

I wonder if Richt has both a QB draw play and RB draw play in his arsenal of plays. dUh. Because Saturday night is the time to use these plays. dUh.

TheeMackJones

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 04:21 PM

Yes!

Miami 24

Va. Tech 17

U saw it here first. hUh.

The Miami fandom will be worth a TD! I just pray to either Yoda or Buddha, that there are over 50,000 in attendance Saturday night!!

RCCF

We REEEEEEEALLY need to find a Good Solid running game...
Homer Changes the Pace, He Should NOT be Setting It!
Great Back .... Great Kid.. Just should NOT be the LeadOff Hitter from the RB position...I think even tho he may be really raw there, Dallas Gives us the uptempo movement and shaking that we NEED starting the game out...Homer is the take advantage of the tired Defense Bruiser that Gus NEVER became..

UMike

If I'm not mistaken, Gray got only a single carry against UNC and no one at Homer got carried against Cuse. Can Gray be that bad? It must be a trust issue or something, he has talent

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | October 31, 2017 at 04:33 PM

It’s practically the same as when Nick Chubb gives Sony Michel a breather.

30CINCO

Matt Porter @mattyports
Was just having this convo with someone (no No. 2 TE either). Framed this way, it's a heck of a feat for the coaching staff.

Daniel Gould @dgould151
Miami being 7-0 with Richards having 14 catches and Walton out for the year is wild.

SinisterCane

IMHO I believe our Olinemen are more suited for power formations. To be more effective in CMR's running scheme we need quicker Olinemen

SinisterCane

^^^^^^
I noticed on the 4th and 1 play when we lined up in the goal line set, we blew UNC off the LOS IJS

UMike

30, good points and very true.

86Cane

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Let's hope this 2017 UM team continues to be MORE of a Treat than just a trick.

GO CANES, BEAT VT!

Terrance Sullivan

Outstanding point 86

WWIN

Feels good riding the streets of Nashville with the U on front of the car and people throwing up the U when I drive by! 😊

Go Canes!

That’s really awesome WW!!

AeroCane

More JT, AR (assuming he's healthy), CH and my dark horse DeeJay Dallas - short passes, screen passes etc

Canes 23 - bad guys 17

Go Canes!

I think the committee will have UGA first, Bama second and the Irish and Clemson in the Top four.

Posted by: Go Canes! | October 31, 2017 at 04:11 PM


Nailed it.

HillViewCane

Canes vs Georgia in the Nat'l Championship. Canes win by 4. I am calling it now

BigWindyCane1

Canes are #10 in the first college football playoff poll. VT is #13 and ND is #3 - for now. Canes have a chance to win the Coastal and move up substantially over the next two weeks. This will define who the Canes are.

MLAlumni1970

Putting my Canes huge car magnet on tomorrow. We will see what kind of reaction I get. Doctors appts. (But, I will take it in with me when I go inside the bldg.!!! Just I case.
Just finished with the trick or treaters. What a fun 3 hours. Parents bringing their wee little ones out. So darn cute. Lots of little Spider Men and Super
girls. Fun, fun, fun.

This will define who the Canes are.
