To the article:

We need to be able to run the ball.

Royal...please explain in specific terms and in 500 words or less how you think we can run the ball better in 2018?

Terrance Sullivan

Outstanding stuff 86. Love it.

roachcane77

Three newcomers will help us run the ball better...

Lingard, Davis & George.

(Sounds like a Law firm... )

Easy.

Stop running straight into the backs of the guards/tackles.

The things I noticed were pretty bad. OL consistantly whiffing in open space, blocking the wrong assignment and getting flat out bullied. Its going to have to start in the weight room with a challenge to be the most physical unit in the ACC. RT is an issue and St. Louis is just not mean enough. We have to have someone on the right side of the line thats able to fold up DEs. If Perry is the QB I can not stress this enough, if we can not lean on the run against teams like Pitt, we will never win the ACC. We need to have a plan B for when a QB has an off game, or on short yards or when the D needs a breather.

Herbieibis

Bottom line, the inconsistent QB play also hurt the running game, as teams jammed the line of scrimage making Rosier beat them with his arm. Admittedly, we need to be more physical on the offensive line and add some more talent which we have. Clemson is not an offensive juggernaut by any means and Bryant might be their best runner. Their offensive schemes are better. We need a bigger running back, which we have addressed. We have speed and talent at WR but it’s young. I’ve said it before Clemson knows how to win the big games now, which we are still trying to figure out and we have to figure out how to play on the road, where in The Herb’s estimation we suck at. We have talent on the D-Line but Clemson has more, especially at Tackle. They have more depth of overall talent as well but it’s not as bad as it seems. They’ve had the biggest edge at QB with Boyd, Watson and now Bryant who is a better runner than passer. With an up grade at Qb, a more physical O-Line, bigger back and more depth of talent we will get their. 2 more years but be warned the one area we keep just barely keep squeaking by on, D-Tackle, can’t keep happening. Our defense has gotten better because of the tackle play of Norton and McIntosh but if they leave the depth of talent we do not have. Martin and Fines barely played Bethel is still learning the position and Ford will be good but will only be a soph and Silvera hasn’t inked yet and after him there are a few maybes, this is not good enough and has to get better.

Lingard is very much like Homer but with some more wiggle in open space. Davis is more like Walton, shifty back. I'm not sure if George will hit the ground running as a FB, but by the end of the year he could be a problem for LBs & DEs. Other than Walton coming back, only the OL can make the OL look better. I dont think we have many real tackles on the team, a bunch of guard types.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 25, 2017 at 06:47 PM

Two 4* DTs and a 3* McIntosh clone is a good start.

roachcane77

George as a lead blocker could prove essential for those short yardage situations we struggled with THIS year.

I truly believe if we had Walton this entire season, we'd be in the Final Four on Jan. 1.

If Davis is THAT (Walton), guy, and Lingard is all he's cracked up to be, we could be running a WHOLE bunch better next year.

YES, we need O-Line and D-Line FOR SURE. If we get those pieces, AND if Perry is all HE's cracked up to be, I'm thinking GREAT THINGS lie before us!

Herbieibis

My question is why do we need a FB? We never use them or unless Richt plans on running more pro-style.

We don't and we won't.

Go Canes!!

In today’s game if the other team had to respect the pass, which Wisconsin will not, it makes running the ball that much easier.

But that being said, this season we saw at UGA what a CMR recruited offensive line and full stable of RBs will do even when the other team knows it’s coming.

Weve seen that before at UGA under Richt. Moreno & Gurley were both forces behind mean OLs. He just never seemed to have enough to beat the top coaches like Saban or Meyer, or have enough to regularly run the SEC gauntlet. It is a bit concerning that Smart was able to come in and take them to the next level after only a season. Hopefully without the SEC roadblocks, Richt is able to stack enough talent to have his best years, more often.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | December 25, 2017 at 08:54 PM

When he got hired I posted your same concern.

But once I heard him speak here that went away. Imo CMR and UGA grew stale and he became more of a CEO than a coach.

Change looks like the best thing for both of them. Difference is Kirby took over a loaded roster while Richt had talented but thin team with some pretty gaping holes in it.

Two more seasons and we’ll be at that level every year.

U can’t compare Smart and UGA Richt at this point. Richt didn’t have a 4 team playoff to work with.

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 25, 2017 at 10:32 PM

Good point. IMO, CMR knows this and will game plan accordingly. They will simplify the game for him, limit his turnovers and let the defense change field position and get scores. It's hard to win games with a QB who can't complete 55% of his throws. Typically, you want at least 60%, and in this offense, 65% should be easy. The injuries to the Canes top playmakers (Walton, Richards and Herndon) were huge, but if I could change something, I would want a higher QB completion percentage. The Canes would have scored a lot more points with some simple execution on short passes. This offense would be totally different

Posted by: nemo2002 | December 25, 2017 at 10:36 PM

Canes still trying to discover who they are. IMO, the offense should run through Huell and Brown, at least for now

BigWindyCane1

Canes still have a lot to work on before the start ACC play at Pitt

BEERicane

The way the canes are looking now, 6 ACC wins would be an accomplishment. That said, the fix the TOs and FTs, their D should he enough to go be them a few more. Hopefully the get into the dance.

CoCane

Coach L is dropping the ball with Walker so far. He's not used to managing the egos of lottery talent.

Feed Brown and Huell as go to guys. Use Vasiliavic and Walker to spread the floor for them. Then, let Lawrence, Lykes, Izundu and Newton be the roll players.

Listen to caneinsight vol. 68 at about the 11:40 mark... Pete said it here!

Pete's words... "CMR didn't recruit Brad Kaaya to come back one bit"

Posted by: WWIN | August 25, 2017 at 07:03 PM

Posted by: WWIN | December 24, 2017 at 06:21 PM


And this statement, this was the fuel for your year long guarantee CMR didnt want Kaaya back?

This comment actually makes you believe without a doubt CMR saw Kaaya, looked at his roster and said "Ain't worried I got Malk here who's gonna get things done much better. Brad, don't even want you back. Bye." ?

This is the most LOL worthy thing you've ever posted here.

Go Canes!!

From Brad Kaaya's own mouth. CMR is a man of integrity and after three years all he wants is players to be informed and at peace.

If Kaaya knew he could go anywhere from 3rd round to 6th and was ok with that, which he was, our coach, a man who actually cares about his players did the right thing as he always will:

Ready for his new journey, Kaaya said coach Mark Richt gave him “complete freedom’’ to make his decision.

Coach Richt said, ‘Do what’s in your gut. I’d love to have you back, but at the end of the day I want you to do what you feel in your heart is best.’ He said he wanted me to be at peace. I appreciate that.

Cager needs to step up so bad its crazy. He has the talent to be a 7 catch, 120 yards and a TD guy. He needs to make teams pay for how they cover Richards. Richards needs to get totally healthy. There's an NFL monster in there.

Do you even hear yourself?

A third year Jr who holds every passing record in our history came to Richt knowing he’s getting a mid round grade and CMR told him to go with his gut and respected his decision.

Not recruiting him back doesn’t mean what you’ve implied all season, that he didn’t want him back. That was totally fabricated bullsh*t from the first time you uttered it.

Talk about spinning.


CaneRock

Weldon sees the writing on the wall.

TonyCane

Forget about Kayaa...any truth to the rumors that Deonte Thompson has had second thoughts and is going to transfer from Florida to UM? Haven't heard that one brought up in a while.

I wonder if Richt told Weinke to "trust your gut" when He asked Richt should He come back...hmmmmmm:

“It was a difficult decision, and one that I was not really sure of until
this morning,” said Weinke. He then asked offensive coordinator Mark
Richt to stand and asked him “if it’s alright with you I’d like to comeback
and try and win another national championship.”

CaneRock

Weinke...Can I come back coach?

What was the purpose of Pete saying it then??? With players you want you don't just tell them I wish you the best and that's it! You start giving them reasons to come back... you say things like "if you come back I think you'll have a better chance to get drafted higher".

CMR: Go with your gut feeling, I wish you the best!

Kaaya was AVERAGE

We need a SAVAGE

WWIN

Also we need...

QB Coach
Special Teams Coach
Offensive Coordinator

Terrance Sullivan

Need to get legitimate two deep on Offensive Line to keep them fresh and in case of injuries. Need some highly recruited veterans to earn their keep. Need QB to complete at least 60% of passes or better (preferably better like 65%).with a 3.5 or 4 to 1 touchdown to Interception ratio
Need to have stable of backs have over 2,000 yards rushing.

Terrance Sullivan

Need a Place Kicker who would not be a dramatic drop off from Jersey Mike Bagely. And we absolutely must get better punting. It was dreadful

Go Canes!!

you say things like "if you come back I think you'll have a better chance to get drafted higher".

Posted by: WWIN | December 26, 2017 at 03:27 PM

That’s what YOU say. CMR is a man of honor and integrity. No matter what Kaaya did this year he was gonna get dissected at the combine. He is who is at this point.

He wasn’t going to get any faster or be a better runner. His stock was as high as it was going to get because he physically can’t change who he is. He knew he was going mid to late rounds and was ok with it.

0 chance he plays and burns his RS year for a bowl game.

Weldon needs to stay away from the weed.

CaneRock

To add to what Terrance said, we have very little experience & production coming back at TE...when's the last time that happened?

Hopefully MI2 takes advantage of the opportunity that's in front of em'...although I do like the 2 Freshmen we have coming in.

HillViewCane

Whenever I see a player leave early I assume it's the money. Sometimes a desire for it but more often than not a real need for it that we probably won't know about as fans. So I would probably act like Richt and say go with your gut and do what you gotta do. Hey kids probably would stay 4 years if they could get a little more money.

I always hear pro athletes say college was way more fun than whatever league they are in.
