A 12-pack of UM nuggets on a Tuesday:

• There’s one potential lineup change Saturday. Mark Richt said on WQAM’s Hurricane Hotline on Monday night that Hayden Mahoney graded out slightly better than Corey Gaynor at right guard against Georgia Tech, and Mahoney would be the starter Saturday against Syracuse if the decision had to be made now.

Gaynor started against Georgia Tech; Mahoney played later.

Both are filling in for Navaughn Donaldson, who is out indefinitely.

• I asked Richt that when he took the job, when did he think this could be a top 10 program and whether UM is ahead of schedule in his mind?

“You are not a top 10 program until the end of the year,” he said. “We were 10th [last year] and then lost four in a row. [At the end of the year,] we were top 20, a little bit relevant.”

But this, Richt said, is important to keep in mind:

“We’re not at the point where we can line up and impose our will on people,” he said. “Florida State was a battle royale to the tend. Georgia Tech was battle royale to the end. We are not lining up and whipping people. We have to battle people every week. We know it.

“We’re excited about winning and trying to establish that mindset. We’re not a dominant football team. We’re a very solid football team that is fighting like mad to win the close battles. That’s where we are right now

“I do think we’re moving in the right direction. We are getting where we need to get. But we need to recruit well. Without getting great players year in and year out, it’s going to be a battle. Last year, we had three close games and lost them all.”

• Several coaches, like Urban Meyer, have had great success their second seasons. Richt is experiencing that.

“Year one you establish your standards, you establish your way of doing things,” Richt said. “Even if you have seniors totally bought in, they still don’t know what you want yet. By year two, the next group of leaders knows the standard. The whole team knows it. It’s guys truly understanding what coach wants and not only doing it but getting players around them to do it.

“The good news is when they look around, they see guys doing it right. They say, do it like [Darrell] Langham, Shaq [Quarterman]... Travis Homer.”

• Richt, on how to get Malik Rosier to play better in games: “My goal is to create more adversity in practice. Practice more like a game. Give me tempo of a game. Don’t give me practice tempo. Give me game tempo. That’s what I need and that’s what I think will help.”

• Richt said some who didn’t play last Saturday likely would play this Saturday. The sense is that’s Ahmmon Richards and Sheldrick Redwine; both practiced Tuesday.

Dee Delaney and Donaldson did not practice.

• Syracuse’s 27-24 win over Clemson certainly caught UM’s attention. “What happened last Friday was pretty remarkable,” Richt said. “It was so impressive to have that kind of a turnaround in that short of a time” - from losing 54-0 to Clemson in 2016 and beating them last Friday.

Besides having two of the nation’s three leading receivers, “their defense has improved by 14 points per game, which is a monster change,” Richt said. “They’re super fast and physical and bring it to you. They don’t sit back. They pressure the quarterback.”

• UM - in the last couple of weeks - wanted to get freshman receiver Jeff Thomas more involved because of his speed and explosiveness, and quarterbacks coach Jon Richt reminded Mark Richt that the Hurricanes got just the defensive matchup they wanted before the play in which Thomas caught a 70-yard pass against Georgia Tech.

“That’s been the thought process since Day 1 - try to find ways, not just him, but anybody that can help us make plays and progress as an offense, we’re trying to find ways to involve them in the offense,” offensive coordinator Thomas Brown said. “We tried to get the ball in his hands with the reverse” earlier against Georgia Tech.

• As far as freshman receiver Mike Harley goes, “other than a couple of mishaps, he’s pretty consistent,” Brown said. “He’ll continue to get better.”

• Deejay Dallas, moved from wide receiver to running back at least for now, continues to compete with Crispian Atkins for the No. 3 running back job behind Travis Homer and Trayone Gray.

Is Dallas ready to get carries? Brown hedged.

“The biggest thing about tailback is playing on third down and pass protection on first and second down,” Brown said. “I get nervous about putting a guy in the game and not knowing how the call is going to go. I don’t want to put him in a bad spot or the offense in a bad spot before he knows exactly what to do. He’s making great progress.”

• It’s time for everyone to stop underestimating Trent Harris, who can be overlooked because he plays on a line with more heralded players/recruits, including Chad Thomas.

He has been very good, both against the run and as a pass-rusher (4.5 sacks). “There’s no doubt the competition has risen since I’ve been here,” he said. “We push each other so everyone has gotten better.”

Coach Craig Kuligowski has helped Harris with “the way he teaches us to attack and get upfield,”Harris said. “If you attack and get upfield, the majority of the time you’re going to make a play and not be wrong.”

• Pat Bethel has added 35 pounds in 20 months, since enrolling, and is thriving at defensive tackle. The decision to move him from defensive end is another example of how this staff uses its personnel intelligently.

• ESPN assigned New York Jets radio announcer Bob Wischusen and former Washington and ex-NFL quarterback Brock Huard to Saturday’s UM-Syracuse game.

Homer should've gotten more than 4 carries in the RZ, Richt was getting too cute down there. Good thing Gauthier caught that tipped Rosier pass that could've been an INT, otherwise we would've needed a TD to win the game.

Posted by: CaneRock | October 17, 2017 at 02:44 PM

Walton is great back but Homers style I think gets more yards with pur oline not being dominant run blockers.

Homer has that Cook vision, but instead of the jump cut like Walton, he uses a very quick but strong "step" cut that makes defenders miss and gets him to the second level with a ton of momentum.

It would be a good idea to get him going early in the passing game too. When Penn State does this with Barkley, he rips off big runs the entire game.

With Homer's house speed, we will see long tds.

His vision and physical style make running him in the red zone more a great idea.

Go Canes!

Key to the Game:
D needs to get off the field on 3rd down.
O needs to use slow l, methodical drives to keep their O on the bench and not let them get in rhythm.

TruCane81

Penn States qb has passing limitations.

Their oc does a good job using PASSES to Barkley to open up runs for Barkley.

He uses a mix of deep concepts with a checkdown and short outs and crosses to the backs, tes, and recievers.

Their plan is designed to get their qb going with easy throws, but he reads slow and takes too many sacks.

If we ran concepts like Penn State, Malik would kill it and get into a rhythm early.

Teams would cheat up and the deep stuff Richt likes will be more open and run with a team in rhythm with more confidence.

If any body wants more examples just ask.

LOL. I kind of don't remember BUT I think it was much later in the game and the score was tied. I don't remember it being right at the start of the 2nd half. Anyway, like I said, if it had worked, would have been nice but I still would have questioned "WHY?"

Malik himself. He said it during a interview.

Thats a damn shame.

To think a staff could do that in this era is unbelievable. He has been a play away from having to be out starter for a while now.

Using transitive property...were we national champs that year VTech beat Ohio State? That would be sweet!

Go Canes!

Or BCC really sucks.

Ron Mayflower

Using transitive property, Clemson will also lose to the FAU owls. Syracuse lost to Middle Tennessee 30-27 who lost to FAU 38-20. Syracuse defeated Clemson. So, there you have it - Clemson losing to FAU too. LoL.

canezilla


So FAU is 3-3 and FIU is 4-2 on the season.

UM beat BCC 41-13.

FAU beat BCC 45-0.

Maybe Miami was trying not to open the play book up or try different schemes. While fau trying 100% to blow them out?

The 2 weeks that we missed due to the hurricanes really impacted us as far as conditioning and timing goes. I believe we will be peaking at just the right time when we meet VT and ND.

Like I've been saying. My only pet peeve about the offense is not using the middle of the field more! We won't lose another game if they start using the middle on a consistent basis.

Ron Mayflower

I agree with Hillview, Rosier is much more productive and a better game manager than Berlin. Berlin couldn't work under center.

thirstybuzzardcane

Maybe.

But I never fail to embrace and love winning.

Half the guys here are rooting with a parachute on. Ready to jump as soon as we lose our first game.

86Cane 12:05pm

Using transitive property, we lose to owls 16-0. In reality, IIRC, BCC did not get a full week of practice before playing the owls due to Irma. FAU stayed back in Madison after getting kicked in the rear.

I say we will kick the owls 65-7 if we really play each other.

thirstybuzzardcane

Walton does too much dancing at the LOS where Homer hit the hole at full speed. Homer is a better fit for CMR’s offense where Walton might flourish in a power formation zone blocking scheme

Posted by: Sinistercane1 | October 17, 2017 at 12:16 PM

No doubt!! Homer is more patient in letting the play develop. I think he sees the field better.

This is actually a very good comparison.

HillViewCane

In Berlin's defense he did improve but in his Junior year/ first year starting he 12 td's and 17 interceptions!!!

As a senior he was 22 and 6. So an improvement there even though his completion percentage dropped. But his Junior year he had 1 great half against Florida. To his credit his senior numbers were good and he never lost to FSU or UF. However Rosier is better

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | October 17, 2017 at 09:50 AM

Maybe Cager is a better practice player and its taken a few games for the staff to see when the lights go on, he doesnt play to his ability. Langham is emerging now, I'd be shocked if they dont run with him now. I do worry that Malik might get a little too confident in Langham now. We cant have the mindset that a miracle is just one chuck of the football away. We need to be undefeated going into our game with VT. Richt has got to find a way to be more on schedule with the offense or our luck is going to run out, which is fine with my expectations, so long as it doesnt happen against teams we cant afford to lose to, of course, we dont get to pick that. Syracuse would be a great game to get into a groove against. I wouldnt mind having everything figured out going into VT.

thirstybuzzardcane

You know what's great. We are 5-0 and haven't even come close to playing our best football yet!

Rosier is way better than Berlin. Brock Berlin was always 1 throw from an interception.

So FAU is 3-3 and FIU is 4-2 on the season.

UM beat BCC 41-13.

FAU beat BCC 45-0.

You’re is the lazy way actually.

We’re averaging 35 a game and ranked 35th.

Some of the teams ahead us? West Virginia, Arkansas State, Memphis and Ohio, Western Michigan and North Texas.

The real question is among the big boys, who runs an offense as diversified as you’re expecting and demanding of us?

OLD STORY BUT INTERESTING...

UTSA Athletics
Last Updated - Jan 6, 2016 20:22 EST
Contact |Archive |RSS

SAN ANTONIO — After starting the UTSA football program from scratch in 2009 and leading the Roadrunners to 26 victories in their first five seasons, Larry Coker announced Tuesday that he is stepping down as the program's head coach.

"UTSA has been a very special place to me and I will be forever grateful for the experience," Coker said. "The future of UTSA football is very bright and I look forward to watching the Roadrunners' success in the future."

While leading UTSA, Coker tutored 14 all-conference selections, 17 academic all-conference selections and the first All-American in program history in 2015 USA Today second-team tight end David Morgan II. Triston Wade became the first semifinalist for a national award when he made the cut for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award given annually to the nation's top defensive back. Eric Soza (2013) and Nate Leonard (2014) were the first two UTSA student-athletes to be honored as a National Football Foundation Scholar-Athletes and finalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy, while Soza also was a member of the 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team and a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy that same year.

Throwing over the middle is less important than winning, is it not?

Posted by: Ron Mayflower | October 17, 2017 at 11:11 AM

It is not either or, it is that one thing leads to the other (next blog title?). Winning is more important than throwing over the middle but throwing over the middle doesn't mean we will not win. On the contrary, we may score more and win much more easily?

I would rate things as such:

1. Winning
2. Tailgating
3. Throwing over the middle.

BigWindyCane1

Some good news from Porter of PBP:

Safety Redwine was present at practice.

WR Ahmmon Richards (hamstring) "appeared to be full-go."

RG Navaughn Donaldson (right ankle sprain) and CB Dee Delaney (right knee) were riding stationary bikes. Donaldson was no longer wearing the boot he had on last week. Delaney had a knee brace on (Boy did those haters at ESPN have their injury report wrong).

LB Michael Pinckney (chest) was present and not in pads. He was wearing a green (no-contact) jersey.

WR Braxton Berrios was in a green (no-contact) jersey. He was in pads. Berrios was given at least one day off post-FSU to recover from soreness.

Receiver Dayall Harris was back in his regular No. 80 jersey. He has served a three-game suspension for a team rules violation and is expected to play this week.

GT also had opportunities to put the game away. If their receiver had made the third down catch, we might not have gotten the ball back.

Rosier is the best QB we have. Why would we not play him over the others when we can move the ball with the so called "unimaginative" offense for the most part? Throwing over the middle is less important than winning, is it not?

thirstybuzzardcane

I told you guys we wouldn't miss a beat when Walton went down. You might think I'm crazy, but I would take Homer over a healthy Walton right now.

thirstybuzzardcane

We are not asking Richt to allow Rosier to throw DEEP or LATE over the middle, just short crossing routes, drag routes and seam routes 5-10 yards down field. We are talking about short, EASY dump off routes to get the ball in the hands of the speedy playmakers in open space while on the run. When was the last time you saw a UM player catch the ball in the open field on a dead run? Oh yeah, the was when AR82 took it to the house. Again, it is not complicated or difficult to understand.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | October 17, 2017 at 09:50 AM

I wonder if this explains a lot of why he wasnt playing earlier this year. Last year would have been tougher with Coley, Richards and Lewis ahead of him:

Richt said Langham and cornerback Michael Jackson — another lightly recruited Al Golden signee who stuck it out — had to “create better practice habits,” and earned more playing time.

Posted by: TruCane81 | October 16, 2017 at 11:38 PM

You are 100% correct!

In my opinion... if CMR is so scared of Rosier throwing over the middle he needs to play someone else!

BigWindyCane1

I like Dugans, but I have to ask myself a question about this development/assessment of his receiving corps? Do I give Dugans credit for developing ACC receiver of the week, Langham? Or do I blame Duggans for not playing the former three-star receiver Langham sooner, and instead playing more coveted four-star recruits out of high school?

You cannot underestimate the skill, talent and ability that Langham flashed over the last two weeks. Langham brings a missing element to the Canes offense that it has been lacking recently. Langham played like like an elite ACC receiver, and it is clear that when things get tough, Rosier trusts him. Langham has put in some serious work, and he can really help open up this offense once AR82 gets back on the field.

In the end, I think I will at least have to give Dugans credit for finally recognizing that Langham earned the right to quickly move up the depth chart.

And I agree that his WRs are blocking downfield. That is what competition does - eliminates a sense of entitlement.

86cane 7:52am

I don"t think anyone would deny we have a long way to go. We need a bruiser at RB. Choc doesn"t appear to be ready. We need more impact players in the secondary. Our guys don't seem to have the talent to play the ball and get INTs. I didnt think JT would be caught on the long pass play, but he was caught and we couldnot get a TD. Our OL is serviceable but not great.

Whenever GT has an extra week to prep they have been winning 2(008 and 2014, IIRC). PJ and Roof are not bad coaches.

However, even the best of teams can go through lulls in scoring. The 2001 team played BC and VT so close with Chud calling plays. IIRC, Dorsey started cold in the Rose bowl game as well.

I do hope our team has turned the corner. I cannot take more close games, LoL.

Posted by: TonyCane | October 17, 2017 at 01:17 AM

I don't think anyone is expecting or asking for dominance. Dominant is when you regularly beat top 10 teams and win championships.

It is nowhere near claiming that you are dominant when you expect to beat an unranked GT team and instead have to struggle and get lucky to beat an unranked team that runs a 1970's offense.

Anyone who watches our games and especially our offense knows we have a long road to go and that we are not utilizing our talent effectively. It is plain ans simple really.

Go Canes!

Players available this past game that have proven to be clutch... Herndon, Langham, Berrios, Homer... are they not good enough to destroy GA Tech???

Posted by: WWIN | October 16, 2017 at 11:15 PM

Even after our game GT has a Top 20 defensive ranking nationally. Plus we have limited opportunities because of the offense they run. So no, I don't think they should be "destroying" GT with that very, very inexperienced offensive lineup.

Completely agree Tony. Great work with the stats as usual.

I like how you use them to make points that noone can really argue with.

I too do not believe this team is ready for week
in, week out dominance. This is not my contention.

I just believe there is alot left on the field with THIS group, even with its flaws.

I believe in us, because I have seen what our players can do.

More importantly, I have seen what Richt can do. When he is on, he is impressive.

I.hold.him to such high expectations because of his track record and pedigree.

This group will probably lose games they should not. But its still unacceptable to have so many slow starts.

Dominant pass catching tight ends dont.grow on trees. Herndon makes our offense hum.

Get him the ball in the first and you wont be sweating bullets in the fourth.

Make it happen. No excuses.

If we drop passes or the d adjusts and.takes it away.eventually fine, but we will have played to our strength, and I accept any result as long as we do that.

Year, 4/5 star players on roster at season start, record after 5 games:

2006: 46 (3-2)
2007: 42 (4-1)
2008: 42 (2-3)
2009: 41 (4-1)
2010: 39 (3-2)
2011: 28 (2-3)
2012: 21 (4-1)
2013: 22 (5-0)
2014: 25 (3-2)
2015: 28 (3-2)
2016: 27 (4-1)
2017: 29 (5-0)

Next year's total should jump up substantially. We lose 6 four and five star players to graduation after this season, but replace them with at least 16.

If the 2019 class is similarly strong we're definitely back over that 40 four/five star player threshold. Then we start seeing the dominance of old.

People would be like, "You see that! That's leadership! Our HC would never go out there and take a dump on the field."

Lol hell yeah.


I did criticize the hell out of Saban for trying to kick that 80 yard field goal. Just gave fsu punk ass the title lol

TruCane, to be fair we have been 5-0 only one other time since 2004...the 2013 season. We really haven't seen this too often before.

Point taken but you get my drift.

But hey WWIN, nobodys perfect, even if you do got so many rings it gave you arthritis.

I dont expect perfection from CMR. It just pisses me off that our strategy problems are blamed on personel when they have been consitent over two seasons with two completely different types of qbs.

You got coaching apologists contending that Richt wont design and demand five yard completions to a DOMINANT recieving tight end because Malik is not accurate enough.

The shyts laughable.

Excuse, excuse, excuse.... somebody call the whambulance lol!

News flash... we've looked like this with EVERYBODY HEALTHY! We looked like this last year! And why do we have to be championship caliber to beat da hell outta GA Tech?

Players available this past game that have proven to be clutch... Herndon, Langham, Berrios, Homer... are they not good enough to destroy GA Tech???

TruCane81

Alright Go you win lol.

TruCane81

Lol! When Nick Satan did it in the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME what did you say?

Posted by: WWIN | October 16, 2017 at 10:14 PM


Lol.

Saban has how many rings?

He could walk out to midfield at opening kickoff
and take a dump on the field and I wouldnt question it lol.

Canes opened as a -13.5 favorite at home this weekend, but now are a -14.5 to -15 point favorite. Clemson was a -23 point favorite on the road when Syracuse upset them last weekend. Can't take this game for granted

I'm getting nauseated at all this freaking whining and nitpicking.

Add Ron Dugans to that list and rest are replaceable

Posted by: SinisterCane | October 16, 2017 at 07:53 PM

You right... I think our WR's block better than our O-line! 😂

Go Canes!

Some of you live in dream land if you think our offensive lineup right now, minus Walton and Richards is championship cailber.

Rosier (minus an injurt start at Duke 2 years ago), Homer, Harley, Thomas, Cager, Langham and Choc, all of who got differing degrees of playing time Saturday have never even started a game before this year or even worse THIS WEEK.

That's SEVEN guys who've never done a damn thing before.

For God's sake three of them were in high school this time last season and two more were rehabbing torn ACLs.

Even Barrios, who's been a beast for us this year, had less than 450 receiving yards FOR HIS CAREER entering this season.

Despite that, we lead the nation in second half scoring, have outscored EVERY opponent in the second half for 11 straight games, and are second in the ACC in points. We're undefeated, ranked in the Top 10, control our own destiny and have a world class defense to pick up the slack if for the first time in a year our offense falters in crunch time.

Wah, we dont throw across the middle. Wah we start slowly. Wah, we've been here before. Was, why so many fade passes.

I guarantee you no one here was bitching when Homer was ripping off long runs and that monster TD when we ran those "predicable" running plays.

Play the result much.

I'm getting nauseated at all this freaking whining and nitpicking.

Man if you're talking about replaceable coaches and how you've been hurt before at this point, you need help.

Well said and I might as well only watch the 2nd half of the game lol

TruCane81

We been here before go.

5-0, 6-0, 7-0. It doesnt matter.

Too many times we been burned like this.

Forgive us for not drinking the kool aid.

Its hard to get over excited about record and rank when you got glaring problems that many think will be solved with talent alone.

I know better than that shyt.

Teams play the way they are coached, period.
Coach it right, and you mostly only.lose when you are beaten physically.

In this last decade plus of despair, most of our losses were not due to playing better teams.

I was told a story by one of the best modelers at Ford Motor. His team felt like they had the best talent in the industry and could make Ford the number 1 car company in the world, producing
stylish cars that were twice as durable and half the cost.

They pleaded with management to allow changes that would increase quality style and productivity, but to no avail. Management was complacent and stuck in a mindset of excuses and mediocrity.

They did not believe.

2012 Ravens, 2001 Patriots, 2002 suckeyes. The list goes on.

We have what it takes to be the surprise champion if we stop making excuses and just get better, starting at the top.

I'm beyond happy about beating FSU and being undefeated but I'm not blind to our 1st half deficiencies. With no creativity in offensive play calling and inaccurate QB play is gonna bite us in the a$$.

Posted by: WWIN | October 16, 2017 at 08:09 PM


If it worked I would have jumped up laughing and praised CMR for having balls the size of Texas.

Then I woluld have said," Good thing that worked or I would have been talking alot of shyt about Coach on the Space...."

Go Canes!

Sometimes I can’t wven believe the things I read on here.

10 and 0 in our last 10
Top 10 national ranking
Lead nation in second half scoring
Only undefeated ACC team
Beat FSU
Third nationally in tackle for losses per game

The awesome list is endless

All while missing Walton and Richards.

Incredible
