I went back to take a look at Tarquin on Hudl. Seems like a legit 4* OL. Like most OL, he needs some weight room work, probably a RT if you ask me.

4* OT Mark Fox from Miami Northwestern is another one we need to come away with. 4 tackles alone isnt a bad idea for 2019, plus 2 or 3 interior guys.

Perry is a athletic specimen. Unfortunately he has Nosier-like accuracy...

If Weldon or Williams really catches a grasp of the offense, Perry will end up 3rd or 4th string...

Preach Brotha Cocane!

Does that mean that he WON'T win the Heisman Trophy this year?
Damn! What a bummer.

Thanks Tom and all my Canespace brothers and sisters, I appreciate y'all making a "Space" for someone who's different!

I love this place!

Cane On!!!

I think he will, but only in the sense that he'll know where he's going more often, and know how to hide it better. The key is keeping it 3rd and short. Rosier has too much baseball in him, and he's never going to have great touch on the deeper throws, which sucks because we have the talent to really hurt teams deep. 2nd pick against Wisconsin really shows what I mean, Cager gets some space and Rosier's lizard baseball brain instantly says *FASTBALL*. If that ball had air under it, it could have been a TD, instead, it was slightly under thrown inside, add to it maybe a penalty that should have been called and we end up losing. A lot of Richt's poor play calling, is really just poor/old concepts and poor down and distance. He calls antiquated stuff most teams arent doing any more because there arent that many great QBs, add to it he himself doesnt have a great QB and we have an offense that struggles.

His Royal Dudeness at his very best.

Dude, you are a scholar and a gentleman.

While it is offseason and I can be somewhat objective, I would like to thank Mark Richt for making Miami Hurricane football relevant on the field. Regardless of coaching, talent, depth, or resource issues, he has made the Canes fun to watch and it has been a LONG TIME since that was the case.

We have a team that seems to have a fun family atmosphere, fight for four quarters, and hits hard.

Richt is building something special.

He needs a little more creativity in the run game. Those counters against nd were big. We maybe should have tried them more. If he used a four wide with Dj at slot or 3 wide with Dj and Homer as backs with motion, he could have created some MONSTER runs adding an option pitch to our bread and butter zone running game. He coaches to overpower. Call it the FSU hangover.

Most of all, he has to realize a versatile, point and throw short passing game is no longer a luxury, but a fundamental necessity.

Getting the ball to playmakers in space at the snap is modern football. If the run game is going, the big play throws are right behind. But the short passes makes the defenses job a NIGHTMARE. Just ask our talented front four from a year ago.

Richt is a great head coach and above average oc who COULD be amazing. Thats why I get so pissed seeing the consistent problems we have. We knew since last spring Malik sucked as a consistent thrower. But our offense did not look like that. Ofcourse guys are running open 30 yards downfield. Everybody in the stadium knows we cant hit em. Lets get some more well designed 3 yard throws, make ALL of our young qbs lives easier, whoever wins out.

Malik misses short and long, but more often long. Give Harley, Thomas, Dj and crew a chance to make a guy miss and manufacture some o when the q.b is off.

This strategy kills good defenses when all else fails.

Its the only thing between Richt and multiple titles. But if he gets better tackle recruits, it may not matter with what he is doing recruiting. September cant come fast enough.

You saved my life twice.

Once from a bear, once from a gator.

What's a friend supposed to do?

If Rozier starts, I think we can expect the sort of improvement in Year 2 from him that Brock Berlin had in 2004.

Year Att Cmp Yards TDs Int
2003 352 211 2419 12 17
2004 348 195 2680 22 6

Posted by: TonyCane | April 21, 2018 at 02:58 PM

Tony, this is exactly like that!

Berlin was HORRIBLE in 03.

In 04 all he did was stare down his first read and throw strikes.

Even if Malik plays well, I still want to see the young guys play.

I get a funny Ken Dorsey-like vibe from Weldon. Watch that kid.

TruCane81

Native, where did you take that buck?

Well deserved write up. Good article Soup

A tip of the hat to you, and your fine post sir.

TruCane that buck was from southeast Georgia...

I spent all my money on airboats, hunting, fishing, beer, loose women, and Canes gear, the rest I just wasted!

TonyCane

Nemo...if that happens I think he is out of here. Actually, it does make me wonder if we will have a transfer regardless of who wins the job?

Perhaps Richts decision will be predicated on pr serving roster depth. So in that scenario, we go:

1) Rozier
2) Perry
3) Weldon
4) Williams

After the season starts however, everything is subject to change.

Now that spring has concluded, players will meet with coaches to discuss the previous five weeks of practice and get on the same page heading into the summer.

"The exit meetings, it's a one-on-one with the coach and the player, and say, 'this is what we think you need to do. These are your strengths and weaknesses,'" Richt said. "And they self-evaluate. We hear what they have to say. We learn stuff. We ask them who they think the leaders are. We ask a lot of questions that help us. But then that'll happen Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday, our coaches are hitting the road. They'll be on the road for the next four weeks or so, with spring recruiting. There will be a couple of days where we'll bring everyone back in town and compare notes before we got back out again. There might be a coach in this area who sees a tight end, but he may not be the tight ends coach. Then we have a meeting and say, 'hey, [Coach] Hartley, second time around, you have to see this guy.' We'll do some organizational meetings that way. But the players have to finish school and there's some discretional time meaning time that's not mandatory during that time when they can come in and work if they want to. But we're not going to get in the way of exams. We've scheduled nothing here for the next couple of weeks.

Sounds like a great life!

TruCane81

Can teams waive the one year sit out for d1 transfers?

If so, I dont see any reason you cant offer marginal, project recruits a one year tryout to make the team. There is no reason to be under scholarship when you have depth problems at key positions.

If the kid cant earn a spot, allow him an instant transfer. I remember when Randy Shannon told Steven Wesley they no longer had a spot for him. Sounds like a sweet deal for a team under the roster limit and give unheralded in state kids a shot to develop into canes.

Is there anything obviously against the rules in this scenario?

TruCane81

Now that I think about it, most of Berlins struggles were under center.

In 04, we played a lot more shotgun and his stats jumped.

We misused him much the same way as Brad.
