If Brad had this Manny Diaz D backing him the last two years, the perception of the program and him would be COMPLETELY different.

If Brad had this Manny Diaz D backing him the last two years, the perception of the program and him would be COMPLETELY different.

The worst we have gotten from him are incompletions and unnecessary sacks, but he protects the ball better than 95% of qbs in the last three years.

He throws beautiful touchdowns and is always accountable, even when things are going poorly.

MANY a quality oc wwould take him in a heartbeat, because he has qualities you can work with.

The o didn't forget how to play over the spring and summer.

Definite bad news:

Go Canes!

Potential good news:

Ariz: Chad Thomas made the trip to Blacksburg with the #Canes, according to sources. No official word on if he will play

Miami 37, VA Tech 17

VA Cane

The D has been good; the offense ....Line QB, Backs, Receivers, coaches, plays, attack, game plan, OC all share the blame there is enough food in the trough for all to indulge in; thats my take from 37 years of coaching it..you share blame believe me.

VA Cane

Well it was hot in SW Virginia today; it will be warm tomorrow night. I have been there in snow rain sleet.....and seem the canes win big in the old days....and fold like a lawn chair when they came out of the locker room. Weather will be very favorable.

Why can't it be EVERYONE on the offense?

Kaaya for bad passes and not extending plays...

OL for making us require extending plays, sacks, hurries, qb hits, etc...

WRs for dropping passes... RBs for not picking up blocking assignments and having better vision...

And lastly, Richt for not calling plays and game-planning well enough.

Posted by: ANGRY SOUP | October 19, 2016 at 07:03 PM

No. it doesn't.

A bad gameplan has a ripple effect, especially when that plan is used game after game. Receivers become disinterested, run lazy routes, lose focus and drop balls. The QB isn't able to get in rhythm. The D starts to crowd the box, bringing safeties and making the line look more hapless.

Again, just look at last years D compared to this year. Last year was arguable significantly more experienced and talented, yet this year is hands down better.

No. it's not everybody.

Go,

Im saying its a piss poor excuse or a bad rumor. If he is too hurt to throw over the top, (something that we have to do to have success) then bench him.

1mg of Epi

Yea BEER. He's an average QB. Above avg if he has a clean pocket w average receivers.

One other thing to consider. His hair. A haircut might help him when he tries to move around... he's got some serious weight he's carrying.

Go Canes!

That hit on the first play was brutal. It happened right on front of me.

And Epi I'm just saying it may explain the absence of anything being thrown over the top.

BEERicane

In Kaaya's defense, he won't really ever lose you a game, but he's sure not going to win you one either.

1mg of Epi

Also, he is the same QB we've seen for 3 years. Kaayas gonna kaaya.

It's Recht

BEERicane

Also, that first hit wasn't all that. The shot to the chin was much worse than that toss.

1mg of Epi

we can't in one breath say kaaya is not the problem then in the next breath say the reason he's the problem is an injured shoulder.

Kaaya looked fine warming up. They're not icing it. He practiced all week. And the game plan has not changed week to week.

BEERicane

They aren't disclosing it because it isn't true.

Go Canes!

Manny on WQAM saying he's heard Kaaya is playing with an injured shoulder since camp that was aggravated at the beginning of the FSU game on that big hit. They aren't disclosing it for some reason.

That would explain a lot about the play calling, especially the absence of th deep ball.

Posted by: Go Canes! | October 19, 2016 at 11:01 AM

Go Canes!

I posted that earlier today after I heard it myself on the radio btw.

Go Canes!

Lol TD why do you rile up the loony bin?

Manny was on WQAM today and said he heard Kaaya was playing with a sore shoulder all camp and he re-injured it on the first play of the FSU game. UM isn't publicly acknowledging anything's up with it.

I'm sure the resident psycho and the rambling dumb dumb will ignore that.

TruCane81

He needs to stick to being the head coach and forget this hobby of wanting to call plays after 10 years away, because that part had passed him by.

Sure looks like it, Herbie!

TruCane81

If Kaaya's arm is bad (which I dont believe it is, just an excuse) why is he playing? Any other QB can make 3 shitty hand offs on 3 shitty RPOs. This O needs some attitude. 1st series needs a deep throw on it every game. The D needs to know they will try it. Max protect and sling it to 3 receivers testing the safeties. If its cover 3 then Berrios (Slot) breaks off and cones back to the QB. Pin those safeties back!

Go canes tends to fabricate Cane matters from time to time. It helps with his opinions and makes him look better and what not.

TheeMackJones

The bottom line: Richt takes a CONSERVATIVE approach to his play calling and relies on a strong running game to SET-UP his pass-action game. In other words, he's not too keen on the VERTICAL passing game akin to OC Coley.

Well, at least a man with proven major college football and NFL football LEGITIMACY agrees with my opinion. duh. Imagine that.

Thank U Mr. Wannstedt for coming to my rescue. huh.

I also opined earlier today that CMR needs to TWEAK some of his plays on offense, to help out # 15 and the offensive offensive line.

Ugh. Again with the stars.

Herbieibis

In 3 ots da u out field goals the Hokies 22 to 19, in a game where 9 fgs were made out of 12 attempts. Both teams had tds called back because of false starts. Miami had almost as many penalty yds as rushing yds 100 to 95.

Herbieibis

Jimmy Madison rushes for 200 yds and they have a bunch of no stars. It seems to the herb that we need a change in offense and then we could move the ball with the cream puffs we have up front.
And the their is st. Nic cane always busting the herbs chops, I've let it ride because the herb speaks the truth. U come from who knows where and because u see what u want to and faithful hopeful and believe in eye candy, that is on u. Fact is, whether u like it or not this team is piss poor average. We are in this position because of Goldie locks ineptness and yes we brought in 3 four star wr's, one who is no longer with us and one who can't remember plays. Coley, was also a 4 star, who plays Casper the ghost than wr. Now with coley leaving and Bruce gone and hopefully by next year Mullins may know the plays, why is it that we only have 2 three stars locked up. As I have stated before we need to be flipping those recruiting stars to double the amount of 4 stars that we have compared to the three stars we have verballed. Coley is a better offensive coordinator than wreck is. Losing unc is totally inexcusable. It was just plan gutless play calling. Do I like wreck, yes and he is a dam huge up grade over folden. He needs to stick to being the head coach and forget this hobby of wanting to call plays after 10 years away, because that part had passed him by.

The thing that's not accounted for is the passage of time and the drastic change in the offensive makeup of successful college football programs. It looks nothing like it did when Richt called plays in his previous coaching lives.

The reality is if Manny is correct about what he's hearing and Kaaya does have a hurt shoulder, this is what we're going to get. And considering I can't remember a single pass over the last two games traveling more than 30 yards in the air, I do believe there is something to it.

So we better do the things we've been doing better.

TMJ,

" Mark called plays for UGA the first 7 years at UGA. He finished 8-4 the first year. The next 6 years UGA finished the season ranked 3rd, 7th, 7th, 10th, 23rd, and 2nd in the final AP rankings. He was the offensive coordinator for FSU for 7 years. Five of those years, FSU was ranked in the top 5 scoring offenses. I think ya’ll need to be patient. I changed my allegiances to Miami after being an UGA fan for 44 years. I believe in Mark. You will too if you give him time. "

TheeMackJones


What to Expect This Week


" A loss, to be blunt about it. For the season, Miami and Virginia Tech’s offenses have been comparable. But Miami’s offensive performance against weak defenses the last 2 weeks should inspire no confidence when now facing a legitimately strong defense that ranks Top 10 nationally. Compounding the mismatch is the Hokies’ aggressive style that results in forcing a lot of negative plays, something that the Canes’ OL is apt to give up.

So how do the Canes win this game?

First, they have to get off to a good start. The team is down in the dumps, the crowd will be crazy on a Thursday night, and if the Canes start off bad, this not only has the potential to spiral out of control but they also lack the offensive firepower to mount a comeback.

Second, force 3 and outs. Justin Vogel is a weapon for Miami. But for as good as the Canes’ D has been, they have allowed drives the last 2 weeks. And that mutes the punting advantage. If the Canes and Hokies trade punts on 3 and outs, that is an advantage for Miami overall.

Third, dominate the turnover battle. The one thing where Miami has been significantly better than Virginia Tech this year has been protecting the football. Turnovers can often swing games, and Miami needs to dominate this metric. There were no turnovers in the UNC game, and each team had one in the FSU game. It’s hard to imagine the Canes winning this game with a neutral or negative turnover margin.

Finally, get some luck. The officials have been “unkind” (to put it mildly) to the Canes the last few weeks. If Miami is going to win this game, they’re going to need breaks, because if everything goes even, without turnovers, without some luck, Virginia Tech is probably the better team, especially in Blacksburg where they have been dominant.

Mark Richt’s offensive calamity

Vishnu Parasuraman October 17, 2016

Mark Richt and the Miami Hurricanes went from a Top-10 ranking to a team whose season is on life support in a little over a week.

The stunning collapse is reminiscent of an era we thought we’d moved on from.

Right from the opening kickoff, when Malcolm Lewis inexplicably made a stretching catch to keep a kickoff from going out of bounds and cost the Canes 35 yards, to the end when Miami seemed to have at least one more chance to get the ball back but failed to tackle on a 3rd and 14 and allowed UNC to run the clock out, this had all the hallmarks of an Al Golden loss.

Except Al Golden is not here, and Mark Richt is responsible, very directly, for the offensive calamity that took place on Saturday.

FSU’s defense had also struggled coming into the Miami game. But at least you know they have elite talent and had underachieved. Sure enough, they held Wake Forest to six points on Saturday.

North Carolina? Nah, their defense sucks and this will likely be their finest performance this year. They had failed to allow less than 23 points in a game this season.

James Madison put up 28 points on them. Not the school, the fourth President of the United States who, buoyed with confidence, showed up as a zombie and ran for 150 yards on that defense.

The best the Canes could manage was 13 points? That is an abject failure of coaching, execution and talent. It takes the combination of the three to do that. That is the offensive equivalent of Mark D’Onofrio giving up 500 yards to horrible offenses.

Running On Empty

The run game fueled the Canes’ 4-0 start. But it largely disappeared the last two games. The inability to run against Florida State was certainly troubling. But there isn’t an adjective to adequately describe this:

Illinois 182 rushing yards; rushing avg. 5.1

I-AA James Madison 209 rushing yards; rushing avg. 4.2

VA Tech 189; rushing avg. 2.9 ( Monsoon conditions )

How does that happen when Miami are supposed to be a running team? We can all acknowledge the offensive line is not where it needs to be, and that cascades down an offense hindering the ability to run and pass.

But the question for Richt and his staff should not be around the issue of talent. That’s for recruiting, and I’m sure there will be a focus on the offensive line in particular. The task now, however, is to extract the maximum out of the current personnel. If this offense would work with better personnel but is not working now, then Richt needs to adjust to that.

You can’t simply run the same ineffective offense on a loop using personnel as an excuse. Surely this offense is better than scoring 13 points against a defense, that even after yesterday, allows over 28 points per game, good for 78th in the country.

It can be multiple things. The players aren’t executing. There were several horrible throws from Brad Kaaya. When he did hit receivers in the hands, there were far too many drops. That can be addressed through practice and by getting the confidence back up. The offensive line will be addressed over time through recruiting.

I do think the pitchforks are way too quick to come out. We’re six games into Richt’s tenure, but are so conditioned to just writing off the coaches that when we see a deficiency like this, we immediately go nuclear.

For all of Al Golden’s faults, perhaps his greatest was his inability to acknowledge and address problems, forcing us to watch Sisyphus push the boulder up the hill in perpetuity. Any inkling of a repeat out of this staff will be greeted with disproportional disdain. Richt has plenty of time, but through no fault of his own, he’ll receive very little patience.

Which leads us back to the salient question… Given all the talent deficiencies, is this offense running at its maximum? If the answer is no (spoiler alert: the answer is no), then Richt must be held accountable, and he’d acknowledge that himself.

Fortunately, there is half a season left, and the Canes have time to turn things around. Or do they?
One Last Opportunity

It’s hard to define what a “good” season is for Miami.

It’s a program with National Championship aspirations that has been nowhere near a National Championship in decades. It’s a program that has been nowhere near an ACC Championship.

And they look unlikely to complete for one this year:

Miami’s loss to UNC gives them a 7 percent chance to win the Coastal. UNC’s win, coupled with VT’s loss to Syracuse, took them from 11 percent to 65 percent. But like Han Solo famously said, “never tell me the odds.”

Whatever the definition, it’s hard to imagine a “good” season if the Canes lose to Virginia Tech on Thursday. We knew when the schedule came out that this stretch of games — four games in 20 days — would define Miami’s season. They are now 1-2 and 1-3 ends it.

Even beating Virginia Tech would result in the Canes needing a lot of help from other results to win the ACC Coastal. But a win in Blacksburg will at least make them competitive in the ACC into November. And that’s a start.

Miami needs to get used to playing in and winning games. Games that matter. It’s been so long that how to respond and perform is not even present in the DNA anymore. Based on the past, you would expect the Canes to roll over. They have an opportunity, one last opportunity, to change that narrative.

That’s what’s at stake on Thursday night. It will be the difference between the rest of the season counting, or simply being a vehicle for showing progress. slicemiami.com

Good points, Ohio. They may not be world beaters, but they are VT beaters. Tomorrow we see if we get to join them in that category.

Could be a 36-10 win.

Did anyone say anything about losing? But the fact is we have lost our last 2 because we couldn't score enough. Its your business if you choose to ignore those facts and assume a big win, I just disagree. Not saying we will lose, but I dont think we will all of a sudden light the score board up. Could be a 17-7 win, 14-10 etc.

30CINCO

You hear that guys, no point in even showing up tomorrow, seasons over, lets pack it in.

UMike

If our last 2 games have showed us anything, its that it doesnt matter how other teams scored a lot on them, we still cant score on them.

Ohio_Cane

Oh, and 2 of VT's scores on UNC started in the red zone because of rain (punter dropped ball inside 5, slipped pass by Trubisky that was picked)

Syracuse scored 34 and Tennessee scored, what, 45? They're not world beaters, regardless if they held UNC to 3 points in a rain storm.

Right. Your vision is also a MYOPIC murky lens, which DOESN'T take into account " nuance and complexity! " And that's why you're a simpleton regarding Cane matters and what not.

Oh, and one more thing. You also have an ANGER issue! Huh. No wonder you have a HARD ON for skinny hoe handle hips Kaaya! LMFAO

We have scored more points in the 1st 6 games this year than last year. With a brand new system at that.

Lol.

We haven't even outscore a P5 opponent this year. What did we score last year vs common opponents I wonder? I don't even know, but I know a bad offense when I see it.

You had the same arguments supporting the al golden D. You need to up your trolling efforts. Quit relying on pointless stats.

Go Canes!

I believe we are capable of scoring 35, even with an iffy OL, but the play calling cannot be the same. Cannot run a read option (which is a joke with Kaaya) every 1st down and expect Foster to not notice. Then you are now forced to throw and they know it. Guess we will see.

Agree with this 100%

UMike

Trust in the coaches to fix it in the game plan and play calling. We have enough talent to beat them, short week or not.

I agree the coaches can fix it, I agree we have enough talent... I disagree all that will magically manifest in a short week on the road lol

UMike

Because every week is different from the last in college football.

I can show you 20 examples this season alone.

I cant argue that point, but those 20 examples dont have anything to do with Miami. Miami has shown every week it cannot score against P5 teams.

21, 19, 13... that is not a good trend, especially when 2 of those teams supposedly had bad defenses. I hope you are right, but to me a team doesn't magically go on the road to a hostile place on a short week and everything gets fixed.

Can someone explain to me how our offense scores 21, 19, and 13 against P5 schools(2 of those against defenses that gave up tons of points) but will magically score 35 or better on a short week in Blacksburg.

I'm thinking of watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show remake instead of the Canes game....LOL

Ohio_Cane

Go Canes, what's Kaaya's record vs P5? That is the ONLY stat that matters.

That's completely unfair considering the defense he had backing him up the last 2 years. Stop it, Beer, cuz U know better.

Go Canes!

You can take away the 2 tds from the defense, still scored more.

We need the short/intermediate passing game. Not bombs.

And lastly, Richt for not calling plays and game-planning well enough.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | October 19, 2016 at 11:01 AM

Richt needs to bare the brunt of the criticism. He has a team deficient in areas, talented in others, and refuses to game plan based on that.

I would argue that the play calling has enhanced the deficiencies. He has WR and TE checking out of games, a OL forced to do what they can't, and a QB running scared.

When they move the ball it's been in a up tempo spread. It pulls the safety out of the box, allows the QB to do what excels at and his WR and TE are engaged.

He needs to set up the run w the pass, not run into a stacked front w crap OLs.
