I like that Rosier does not turn the ball over or take sacks, and seems to finish games strong, even under pressure. In order for Rosier and his team to be elite, Rosier has to improve his consistency and accuracy, which I think he can do.

I would like to see Rosier get his completion percentage up from a below-par 59.1% (10th in the ACC, even behind a few first-time starters like Blackman at FSU), and increase it to about 65% or greater by the end of the season. If he does that, the Canes will be very successful this season, the Canes will crush most teams they face, and Rosier will be a virtual lock to finish out his UM career as a legendary Canes QB starter that was part of the resurgence that really brought the U "back."

This all day.

Malik is only in his sixth start so he has a ways to go.

I was hoping he would be a little better going through his progressions since this is his fourth year on campus.

Honestly he is exactly what I thought he would be. I was just worried he would be a turnover machine, but that has not been the case so far.

We can win some games with this guy.

He is NOT ready to run everything Richt wants, and probably never will be.

Richt has called some great plays earlier in games that Malik has flat out missed.

My problem with Richt is that we know this about him.

He takes ok shots downfield when he has great shots short. He keeps when he should hand off and vice versa. He sometimes calls run when he should call pass and vice versa.

A better qb would shred it in this o, but we have what we have.

Richt needs to help him more with predetermined, quick point and throws that are open due to scheming more than making a complicated read. One two recievers max.

Richt should not shelve his offense, it works.

He just needs to take away A LITTLE of Malik's decision making freedom and add more plays that force him to throw quick and short.

It wont lead to a 60 a game offense but we will be much more consistent.

I don't recall too many designed roll outs. There was the one in third qtr last game that he hit for a big gain. Wonder if that would help his accuracy

IraqiCane

The S&P+ looks to measure the efficiency and explosiveness of an offense while adjusting for pace.

The efficiency measurement, known as the Success Rate+ measures Miami as the sixth most efficient offense in the country.

All that really says is that Miami makes explosive plays and I dont think many disagree with that. I think what people really want to see is an offense that controls the score of the game by getting leads and answering the other team's scores.

Go Canes!

That play by play breakdown really illustrated some of Malik’s shortcomings, but the kid has come up huge in big moments so he deserves a ton of credit too.

Think we’ll see Malik the streak the whole time he’s here. So far that’s been plenty good enough when it counts.

News is that Navaughn Donaldson is listed as probable on the injury report. Sheldrick Redwine, Michael Pinckney and Ahmmon Richards are not even listed. This is great! Dee Delany is out and, of course, Evidence Njoku joined Mark Walton and Jamie Gordinier on the Out for the Season list.

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | October 19, 2017 at 12:49 PM


Moving the pocket, especially with play action, could really help us in goaline and short yardage.

Malik has helped the offense with his legs.

I think Richt will find ways to use MalikA's athleticism to break through slumps over the next six games.

It seems logical with his issues with accuracy and reads.

AfriCane

Just re watched the cuse vs Clemson game. My observation :

Cuse has some bad ass receivers.
Their RB is quick to the hole.
Their O line is not impressive

Clemson came in and looked past them. Clemson played without any energy. By the time Clemson woke up, it was too late.
Cuse was at home, the 12th man.

Their D line is very undersized. They balance it out by been fast. But they still don’t get pressure without blitzing. That’s where we should kill them.
We should start the game by throwing. Because they blitz often. Once we burn them with Richards, Berrios, Langham, and Henson, that will open up big gaps for the run for their puny D line.

Lastly, I would like to thank Clemson for under estimating them and loosing. No one saw the cuse coming before. Not so anymore! Now they have a big target on their back. Poor guys, they might actually loose all the rest of their games. Because every team is ready for them now.

Da U 30-20. We need to start faster and since we are a little slow with the adjustments the game at half time will be around 17-14. Hopefully Knowles will only be used as a last resort.

Sounds pretty good to me:

Only three teams rank in the top ten in the Success Rt+ and IsoPPP+ measurements this season: Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Miami.


To put these two stats in perspective, if you win the explosiveness battle in a game, you win 86 percent of the time. If you win the efficiency battle, you win 83 percent of the time.

Good point. I think the Canes have the highest red zone scoring percentage in the ACC, but the TD% is 9th in the ACC. At least there are no red zone turnovers. Another area for improvement is that the Canes need more red zone TDs.

IMO, execution of blocks and assignments are key to scoring TDs in the red zone. First and foremost, a team must have the OLs and RBs to run the ball effectively in the red zone. Rushing TDs break the other team's spirit, and reflects a tough attitude needed to win games. The Canes need to run the ball, and CMR was known for some beautiful power running plays near the goal line. Second, Play action to the tight end or full back in the flat. Third, a big receiver who can make a catch over a smaller DB. The Canes have all of those pieces in place to have a great red zone offense.

I saw Lingard in a game and at a camp. Lingard has a chance to play immediately. Lingard is taller than Walton and Homer, and might be a little taller than Choc. Lingard is the best RB recruit in Florida. Lingard has some more room to build muscle once Felder gets him in the strength and conditioning program. Lingard is also very fast, and I think he has more potential than Cook at Central. Cook is good. When Cook was in the 9-10 grades, Coaches at central used to say that he has a chance to be better than his brother, but I don’t think he is as good as Dalvin was. I like Cook, and I think he will be good but I think we got the best RB recruit in the last couple of years with Lingard.

hUh! Haven't you heard the news today. Miami's offense is too INCONSISTENT to break the ' 40 point ' barrier and all that. Nevertheless Miami should garner another conference victory. dUh.

Oh, and one more thing. Cane loyalist better HOPE his team de jure gets off to a ' fast ' start on offense. Because if Richt's play calling is too CONSERVATIVE, again. Then mighty Syracuse will make this an interesting game going into the fourth quarter- akin to mighty FSU and GA Tech. OUCH.

And I absolutely believe Richards ISN'T completely at ' ONE-HUNDRED and TEN PERCENT! ' Yikes. Matter of fact, Richard's lower extremity injury MAY NOT become totally healed until the season ends. Yikes.

I should have said start over Richards but yeah similar sentiment

Herbieibis

Keep playing Richards with that ailing hammy and it ain't never going to heal and it may not regardless, unless he takes about a month off. We got plenty of WR's to handle The Cuse But Rosey hitting them consistently is another matter. We need Richards close to 100% by the time we get Va. Tech And The Irish.

Question for the blog has Langham earned his start or would you start Richards and play Richards more?

Posted by: HillViewCane | October 20, 2017 at 12:24 PM

If you go back and watch at all of Langham's catches, not just the two clutch ones against FSU and GT, you see a WR with elite skills. Langham even snatched a couple of off-target throws from Rosier and made it look easy. It's not just a matter of Langham earning a spot, the Canes need playmakers like him on the field, JMO.

IMO Richards will play too because he opens everything up on offense for the other receivers and even the running game. Richards is a legitimate threat to score any time he catches a pass, no matter if it's a screen, a slant, and out or a fly.

BigWindyCane1

That Vegas line is moving. It opened at -13.5 in favor of the Canes over Syracuse, now its -17.5 and -18. Is that the Richards effect?
