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

TruCane81

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.

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.

Totally understand. Again, I think we're two years away from thoroughly dominating the Coastal. The Canes did not fall apart overnight - it took years of bad luck, bad recruiting, and transfers to drop Miami down from over 40 four and five star players to

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.

TruCane81

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.

THE TITLE OF THIS BLOG READS..IT IS BETTER TO BE LUCKY THEAN GOOD... IF 86 HAD A DOLLAR EVERYTIME HE HEARD THIS IN HIS LIFE, DUDE WOULD BE LOADED!!!!

Posted by: canezilla | October 16, 2017 at 02:41 PM

Why would the dude get rich? 86 is the one getting the dollars.

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.

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.

86, we potentially are not utilizing our talent most effectively. But you can say that this regime is mishandling its talent less so than previous regimes.

At midseason 2017, laying out Miami Hurricanes’ path to College Football Playoff

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.

Ron Mayflower

oh, we need AR82 back asap.

SinisterCane

Brad Kaaya cut by the Panthers LOL

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.

You are 100% correct!

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

We had PLENTY of opportunities to destroy GA Tech!!!

Go Canes!

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.

86Cane

Tony...Don't get me wrong the current staff is a huge upgrade over our past two regimes. I am HAPPY we are winning these close games instead of losing them. But I don't think there is a need to sugar coat the deficiencies in what we see as fans.

86Cane

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.

Go Canes!

It's time, there is no more delaying.

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.

WWIN 10:29 am

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?

For us there is no either/ or. They are the same.

Throwing the ball short to our playmakers in open space is OUR recipe to win.

Do it earlier and the wins are easier.

You should be.

The incessant whining and fear from the safe place finding guys on here would make the trip unbearable.

I ask again, what Top 25 team is consistently playing this offense you wish we were?


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.

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.

Go Canes...the answer to your question is easy: Go look up the top 10 scoring offenses in college football, then look at top 10 passing offenses and top 10 rushing offenses. See what teams have most of those things in common and then report back to the blog. You have 8 Hours to compile your report.

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.

RCCF

Malik Rosier is the equal of Brock Berlin

Servicable, VERY streaky, Winner Blood, HeartAttack for Fans
Loved/Hated etc etc... BB Jr.


12%

Go Canes!

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?


86Cane

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

UM beat BCC 41-13.

FAU beat BCC 45-0.

Your thoughts please?

HillViewCane

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

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.

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
