Reflections of Mark Whipple

They say that first impressions are everything. Soooo, here it is folks, I present to you, my impression of Mr Whipple...
http://assets.philadelphiaeagles.com/uploads/coaches/headshots/thumbs/23.jpg

The only problem is that he reminds me of the Pillsbury's "Cream puff" doughboy and doesn't exactly scare the hell out of me, when I want him to look like the " Mr.Stay Puft, Marshmallow Man" from GhostBusters... LOL

Can we not talk about Whipple until we get confirmation he will join Miami or not? All this second guessing gave me a headache last night.....then again, it could have been all the rum i drank.

solarcane

"Can we not talk about Whipple until we get confirmation he will join Miami or not? "

This is precisely why a great blogger like old skool started the nostalgia thread last night.

Everyone was sane for a few hours.

The once in a year bloggers that didn't get it, need to get it

There is nothing Canes happening, when something Canes happens it will happen here before it happens anywhere else.

All you guys and gals that contributed last night I appreciated it a lot, that was fun as could be.

Ok back to moping around and watching for chips of sky falling in our laps.

GO CANES!

peace

Forget whipped cream. I want a OC that bleeds orange and green and doesnt have to debate over coming to the greatest job in the country.

Esteban

once reports start coming out about how this weekend was for the recruits then we can talk about that.

SuperCooper

doesnt have to debate over coming to the greatest job in the country.

Posted by: Canefantasy | January 25, 2009 at 09:54 AM

Dude has already sold his house, unless he is going to live in Manhattan from now on, I don't think he is debating anything. He is saying the right things until it is "official". And if you look at his comments, they similar to what Young said the day before he left for OSU. Just sayin...

LyquidEnigma

I agree with you Canefantasy. You shouldn't have to think about it, debate, about being part of the U family. Either you bleed green and orange or you don't. The Boss Man needs to withdraw the offer and move on to the next candidate. PERIOD!!!!!

58Staight

Gotta love ferman's attempt to save face here. the guy has started numerous threads and posted on many others trying hit every "whipple isn't comming" angle he can. the problem is, no matter if whipple comes or not his info was wrong. he said that whipple is NOT a candidate and never was.....lol, the guy is hoping whipple doesn't come because he thinks he can save face that way.....sad indeed.

solarcane

Whipple might/ probably be/is at Miami, he may be using the Eagles as a little signing bonus incentive.

How many people on here ever watched one single UMass football game?

Ok how about powerhouse Brown's football program?

What's the name of the Umass team or Browns without Googling it?

Whipples got a winning record against colleges the quality of which Appalachian State routinely drubs every year.
He also lost against some ranked schools and schools with winning records

We never fell all over Ap States guy when he was beating Michigan.

Whipples in that's great, Whipples out we get a just as good or better guy.

Don't sweat it Sharky

Well I hope that you are right...

Didn't Truth say the recruits and players already know who the OC is??

Esteban

i actually watched a UMASS game back when they were real good - I'm assuming it was the time he was there. I just remember watching them play cause it was a playoff game (maybe title game) and they seemed to be in the playoffs every year at that time. I don't remember the style of play or anything. Just was one of those "there is no other football to watch" moments.

Well then, I am glad you are not Coach Shannon.

Esteban

solar, yep...and i forget who pointed out that Randy Shannon said he wouldn't be talking to the media til signing day. so who knows that might just be the day they announce Whipple officially. same for the DC.

Mark Whipple, the former quarterback coach with the Steelers and current offensive assistant with the Eagles, might well be the ex-factor in today’s game versus the Cardinals. Having worked with a number of Cardinal Assistants for three seasons, he not only knows how they think, but has certainly prepared quarterback Donovan McNabb today on what to expect... 2009

Posted by: SuperCooper | January 25, 2009 at 10:10 AM

I'm not Shannon. I have faith in what he does. I'm a fan so I'm allowed to have "knee jerk" reactions. If I were the coach, I'd be on the inside of negotiations and wouldn't be sweating it. Who really knows what is going on? If what you say is true about him saying the right things is true, then cool. But if not, then we need to head in another direction. That's what I'm saying...

The Truth

No worries gentlemen...

Have a great day. BIG recruiting weekend this weekend and BIGGER next weekend.

Signing day: HUGE...and not for star ratings but for filling needs. Well, both but I really don't give a rats ass about star ratings and neither should any of you.

Miamis program is in good hands. It won't ever be pretty but the W's will come and everything will be ok.

Sorry guys... but The truth has spoken and It's whipped cream for everyone...LOL

Until I get a note from Randy, telling me no, I'm celebrating... and if I'm wrong, OHhhh Welllllll, ShitHappens and I'm just a stupid blogger

The Herald news
UM
Canes already are counting on 18 early commitments

With less than two weeks before National Signing Day, the Hurricanes still have nine scholarships to offer.

With a little more than a week to go before National Signing Day, the University of Miami has put together one of the nation's best classes, featuring several top-tier running backs, defensive backs and defensive linemen.

UM has 18 commitments and as many as nine more scholarships available to use before National Signing Day on Feb. 4.

With a few spots left to fill, no area will receive more attention over the final two recruiting weekends than the offensive line. Recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt said before last season that Miami was looking to sign six or seven offensive linemen in this class. Four spots are filled.

Prep school recruits guard Brandon Washington (6-5, 320) and tackle Jermaine Johnson (6-6, 330) signed letters of intent and began taking classes at UM last week.

The other two commitments are Plantation American Heritage offensive lineman Jared Wheeler (6-6, 310) and tackle Cory White (6-5, 250) of Fleming Island.

The Hurricanes are looking at six players to fill the remaining two to three spots on the offensive line. Two players from Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia -- tackle Bobbie Massie (6-8, 330), who is considered the nation's best prep school player by Rivals.com, and guard Daniel Campbell (6-5, 320) -- visited UM in December and are still considering the school.

Former Rutgers commitment Malcolm Bunche (6-6, 320) of Newark, Del., and tackle Marcus Hall (6-5, 295) of Cleveland Glennville High visited this weekend.

Under Armour All-American guard Peter White (6-5, 325) from St. John's College Prep in Washington and tackle Andrew Tiller (6-6, 350), a junior-college prospect from Nassau (N.J.) Community College, are expected to visit in the final recruiting weekend.

Of the six prospects, Bunche (also considering Rutgers and Maryland) and White (Tennessee and Maryland) are the two players UM probably has the best shot of landing.

The Hurricanes are trying to add another tight end (Fort Myers recruit Stephen Plein is the only addition) and a few other defensive players.

The big name added to the list of visitors this week was Missouri commitment and U.S. Army All American defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (6-4, 292), who is athletic enough to play tight end. Richardson, a UM fan, will visit Jan. 30.

As for the other tight end prospects, the Hurricanes still have hopes of luring former commitment Billy Sanders (who switched to UCLA). Sanders could take an official visit to UM on Jan. 30. UM hasn't offered a scholarship to tight end Terrell Mitchell (6-6, 230) from Powder Springs, Ga., but could give him a look.

The other two defensive players UM is recruiting visited this weekend -- Jacksonville linebacker Sam Barrington (6-2, 210) and defensive end Shayon Green (6-3, 225) of Tift County in Georgia.

Green is being looked at as a speed rusher and outside linebacker. Barrington also could replace the spot vacated by former recruit Antonio Harper, whose scholarship was pulled by UM because of academic struggles, according to his high school coach, Hubbard Alexander. Barrington was a two-way player at Parker, rushing for more than 1,250 yards and tallying more than 100 tackles.

There is a chance UM also might be able to lure Under Armour All-American cornerback Greg Reid (5-9, 170) from Valdosta, Ga., to take his last official visit to UM on Jan. 30. Reid, however, is expected to stick with his original plan of visiting Georgia.

I watched Whip a ton at UNH. The dude knows offense and flings it.

He built that program from nothing and then Sporano took over the keys and had them in the DII playoffs all the time. Didn't hurt that they had all world RB Roger Graham running for 10 yards a clip.

They were a field goal miss away from setting the DII record for points per game.

These OC and DC hires are not going to make or break this program. The talent already here and the incoming guys for 09 and 10 are whats going to bring this program back to where it belongs.

Whipples comments about calling good games when you have good talent says it all right there.

A blind fukkin chimp could've been our OC in 2001 and we still would've won it all.

Simmer down.....

GO CANEZ!!!!!

I would've seen more of Whip and his O if I wasn't tryin to bang everything in sight back in the day at those football games!!


MMMMM drunk chicks in the middle of the day. Like shootin fish in a barrel.

Proceed....

canez1 one goos stuff

Jacory said it himself, the players are the going to be the nucleus of this team it doesn't matter who the coaches are.

Whipple or who ever, can call a decent redzone offense we would have won the ACC going away last year.

This year with more experienced players, that don't wear down, and a legitimate offense that's two games won that we gave away last year.

A little UNH history

The apex came in 1997, when UNH advanced to the NCAA Championship game and was, at that time, the smallest in NCAA history to play for a national title. UNH also advanced to the NCAA semifinals in 1992 and the quarterfinals in 1993 and 1995. The Chargers shocked the state and grabbed all the headlines in 1992 when they defeated then-Division I-AA University of Connecticut in the season opener. UNH also defeated I-AA institutions Villanova, Monmouth, Lafayette, and Robert Morris.

Charger Football has a storied tradition of gridiron success, including four NCAA Division II playoff qualifications in the 1990's. The program posts an all-time record of 172-135-5 in 31 seasons, including a 142-87-1 (.620) mark after moving to the Division II level in 1982.

In addition to team success, many individuals in Charger Football history have earned national and regional accolades. UNH had 126 All-New England award winners in 19 seasons between 1983 and 2001, and 63 All-ECAC picks during the same time period.

Perhaps the program's most famous alum is former running back Roger Graham, who won Division II's most prestigious award - the Harlon Hill Trophy - after leading the NCAA in scoring and ranking second in rushing in 1993. In all, he rushed for nearly 6,000 yards during his career. UNH has had a player finish in the top four in the Harlon Hill voting on five occasions. Several players, including Graham, went on to professional football careers. Miles McPherson was the first-ever player drafted out of UNH, and spent four seasons with the San Diego Chargers. Former UNH offensive lineman Harry Boatswain earned a Super Bowl ring while playing for the San Francisco 49ers. So did former head coach Mark Whipple, with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After leaving UNH, Whipple (coach, 1988-93) piloted UMass to a Division I-AA national championship in 1998 and was later quarterbacks coach for the Steelers. Numerous other UNH coaches have gone on to find great success in the professional and college ranks as well. Tony Sparano, who led UNH to the 1997 national championship game and is the program's all-time winningest coach, is currently the Associate Head Coach for the NFL's Dallas Cowboys. Chris Palmer (coach, 1986-87) has been an NFL head coach and is currently quarterbacks coach for the New York Giants. Darren Rizzi, a member of the '97 staff who later returned as head coach, is the associate head coach at Rutgers University in the BIG EAST Conference. A number of others have gone on to jobs in high-level college football as well.


GO CANEZ!!!!!

Chim-Chim for OC!

Chinese Punisher aka Cavaleer

Canez1, yeah, his comments about talent say it all.

If we get those OL and manage to steal Richardson and Reid, and keep the guys we already have, we'll be ready to rumble player-wise.

S&C and DC will be critical but there's a ton of talent out there so I'm not concerned about that.

Canez1

Solar

Also remember what our young bulls did when they had no coach.

They ran shyte themselves and didn't miss a beat. These were HS kids remember!!

These dudes coming in are fierce competitors and winners. You can't coach that.

They have what is needed inside of them. They come preprogrammed out the box.

So wether it's Whip or Chow or Johnny "latest good OC" lately it won't matter. Accepting losing will be a thing of the past and before you know it the new crop of great Canez will be working on a new 58 game streak of their own.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

The chicken or the egg?

They say coaching is over rated and I agree to a point and... that it's the player and not the coach at the end of the day, that wins it for the team, but preperation before a game, game day play calling and knowing how to break down an opponents game are all intangables that make it easier to win too.

Just saying

All since 2003.

Either Whipple is the worst interview in the world or he just likes the attention, I don't know.
