Strength of schedule has hardly ever mattered. I remember 1 time, USF was ranked 2nd in the country, lol. Playing cupcakes will get you in the top 10 and keep you there.

So, WWIN, Did Diaz get exposed by GT this year? You did state earlier that Diaz gets figured out in his second year, so just checking.

VA Cane

Agree 100% Windy. Polls never mean anything to me, except that people who coach and report have taken notice that we are playing well. We may be 8 6 or 3...dont know dont care. We have had injuries, others have too. Its that old UM adage from the glory days next man step up. Now we are not as deep as those teams, but people are stepping up. TH is the real deal; the guys on the line did not do a bad job and though the D was shaky at times, they made some plays.
I am proud of the kids they hung in there....and no quit!! Clappy, Onion, and AlPa teams were known to quit.'
My biggest peeve is getting 3 instead of TDs....when you get close you need TDs. I will take the last one as it was the winner! Great teams finish with TDs. We have work to do, and like Saban says do not listen to the rat poison.....work to get better and improve. Really fun up and down thriller for us all.

One thing; sit Cager down. I do not know if he is scared, stupid, lazy, or lost. He adds nothing to our attack; he acts as if he does not care. I have never had a player like that, never will!! No block, no catch, will not go get the ball....and God forbid hit or take a hit. He is like his recruiter....AlPa....does not know how to and does not want to win. Cut him now!!!

Walton has a style that translates well to a good nfl career.

I love the way Homer puts his head down, but his lack of elusiveness cpuld wear him down. He is only a true soph.

Its the 2nd straight season Miami has been ranked in the top 10 under @MarkRicht.

Posted by: 30CINCO | October 15, 2017 at 01:29 PM

Coaches poll has consistently ranked us a little higher than the AP this season. Syracuse beat Clemson last week, so a big win over the orange will go a long way to show how far the Canes have come. As we learned this weekend, even the best teams can struggle against unranked opponents when they are not prepared.

Bottom line is that the Canes can settle all of this on the field. The Canes control their own destiny. And teams that start the season hot don't always finish that way. The Canes have so many areas to work on and improve, yet they remain undefeated. Once things start to come together, this team can really get on a roll. I am looking for the Canes to continue to improve so that by the end of the season, the Canes will be one of the hottest teams in college football

Go Canes!

Anyone saying we donโ€™t belong in the Top 10 should see this stat. Ohio Stare being ranked above Clemson is a total joke.

I think Malik struggles with accuracy at times which may affect certain calls CMR makes.

Posted by: CGNC | October 15, 2017 at 12:08 PM

Exactly.

When we get the ball to Herndon, the run game IMMEDIATELY starts goug8ng the defense. When we run well, we almost always win sans turnovers.

If we let the defense know he will shred them for first downs early, the run will be effective all game long.

This phenomenon has proven true even against tough defenses.

Instead of it being our core offensive philosophy, we wait until we are nearly dead in the water.

The sad thing is, this simple change in philosophy will make all the things Richt wants to do ABSOLUTELY DEADLY.

CGNC

Epi-you are right on the tight end. it is like he is newly discovered in the 2nd half. The other issue I have with that is if if the tight end is under utilized it won't attract top notch tight ends in recruiting- they want to catch not just block.

Herbieibis

GT aided us by playing a prevent defense and allowing us to finally use Herndon. No brainer throws with the Deno defense GT was running the last minute, with DB's 10 yds off the WR.

TruCane81

I like those screens.

Running similar concepts between the hash marks all game will go a long way to a more consistent, better executing offense.

mi@mic@ne

Richt philosophy is to audible into the best play that attacks the defense weakness. Its Howards philosophy.

mi@mic@ne

We won because of the last drive where we go down the field on bubble screens...Richt call a brilliant series.

mi@mic@ne

I dont know if it is regional, but Espn has purposely left out the Cane win over GT yesterday. I watched the college football report for an hour this morning and nothing was shown in our game yesterday...very sad that they are so bias.

Go Canes!

So Malik needed to be more accurate to hand the ball off to Homer and to throw fades to Langham instead of Harley? Ok. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Herbieibis

Lucky win, despite some shitty play calls. Middle of the Dee-Line is tough, the LB's are playing like they're freshmen and Knowles, I'm wondering whose team is he playing for, it sure ain't us. No crossing routes, no slants, either bubble screens, fades or bombs.
Richt needs to get his act together, as a play caller. Like Manny's adjustments at halftime but those adjustments should be made earlier. Rosier is average at best but he makes the plays, when. he has too or Langham aides in the miracle. Way more talent than GT for this game to be close but these are the games we would lose with Golden.

Good oc's use strings of "easy"but creative plays that give a team confidence and warms themย

Richt has done this ONE GAME since he got here. That was last year against Pitt. He refuses to take the lessons from that game and seriously implement them, while adding a few things as well.

Poor execution at multiple positions is always a sign of poor coaching.

Make that 10 straight wins, a streak in which we have outscored every single opponent in the second half.

I think the Canes will move past Clemson and will be ranked #7 in the polls. A win next week at home over Syracuse and the Canes will move up again

Is the Rosier/Langham QB/WR combo the most clutch in canes history? I think so... more clutch than Kaaya ever would have been even if he had Andre or Irvin or Reggie (I had to).

Ron Mayflower

TrueCane81 932am

We did start fast vs Duke. They switch coverages and we start having issues. The plays were there in all of these games. The first series vs FSU, an OC cannot make it simpler than a direct throw to the TE for the 3rd down conversion. That did not get executed.

So its not all on the coaches. Sure there is always room for improvement but the play calling also depends on what defenses are doing. Malik has to start being accurate on most if his throws or at least give the receiver a chance to catch.

For now, I am enjoying the win.

BigWindyCane1

The coaches are developing players, and have shown that this team now has quality depth. Delaney goes down, Michael Jackson stepped in and played just as well.

Walton goes down and Homer rushes for 170, and scores two TDs. Richards doesn't play, and Langham gets 100 receiving yards on 5 catches.

Pinckney, who I think has been the best Canes LB so far, goes down with an injury, and the second string LBs step in and play very well. Quarterman also missed some snaps, but for the first time this season, I thought the backup LBs played very well.

Everyone knows the DL is deep and very good, so I will not touch on it here. I was even pleased to see Jon Ford come in and play very well.

The offensive line played very well without Donaldson. The run blocking was very good. The pass protection needs more work, but that's ok.

The only position that concerns me depth wise is the safety. With the exception of Jaquan Johnson, the safety play has not been good. GT exploited that second safety position on passing plays and running plays. Someone needs to step up

TruCane81

Thats my issue Ron.

Malik is streaky with accuracy.

Those long throws to the sideline are difficult. They add to his cold streaks. Add in drops and the o looks putrid sometime.

This is why I am so adamant about easy plays.

Shovel pass, te screen, hb screen, drag routes to wrs underneath when the linebackers and safeties follow Herndon downfield.

You know, the stuff that works and we score EASY.

When Richt is on, we score EASY,problems be damned. We just know he is leaving so much more on the field, and that has kind of been his career's haunting narrative.

BigWindyCane1

Malik is what he is and our coaches are playing him to his strengths.

Posted by: Ron Mayflower | October 15, 2017 at 08:45 AM

This is a very true statement. Rosier throws that bubble screen well, but struggled with other simple throws. Sometimes, Rosier sees the coverage and goes to the wrong receiver.

Sometimes going to the wrong receiver works out. That 4th down throw to Langham was supposed to go to the receivers on the other side who had single coverage to the other side, but thankfully he went to Langham who had double coverage, but has shown he can make plays. Even GT knew Langham was the threat, and started rolling their safety over. And that 4th down catch by Langham was a little luck, but mostly skill because he tip it to himself and kept his concentration as he was falling to the ground.

1mg of Epi 9:22am

oh yes, I did watch the game in full and a couple of times after that. Playcalling is situational. You are holding a grudge or dislike the Richt man for other reasons. The playcalling would have be very different if Malik is accurate with his throws. I am glag our QB is ice, but he is streaky. It has,very little to do with play calling. lLet your Richt hatred go.

TruCane81

Posted by: Ron Mayflower | October 15, 2017 at 08:45 AM

Noone says force feed the middle at all costs.

We just need more crosses, digs, and drags. We also need to send multiple recievers across the middle a la levels.

Everything in our offense is to the sideline, both short and deep. Teams know this and it leads to the droughts.

We do have execution problems because our playcalling does not warm up the players early.

Good oc's use strings of "easy"but creative plays that give a team confidence and warms them
to more advanced playmaking.

These less talented offense all seem to put up big numbers until they play a good defense.

Look at all the scores across the country. Don't see anyone out there consistently lighting up Top 20 defenses.

When Richt is good, our deficiencies DON'T matter. Nobody expects 100 points a game.

Just more variety of concept utilyzing the talent on hand and the way defenses play us.

This will prevent the LONG scoring droughts that put games in jeopardy.

The running joke since Richt got here is when is he gonna open the playbook? We all realize the vanilla nature of his attack and it does not look like the smooth, aggressive efficient attack of less talented offenses all over the nation.

Canes did not bring their A game but I will take the W. Manny did a good job adjusting and making GT run east/west. We were lucky on the Langham catch - I think there was single coverage on the other side. Again, Cager could not get separation this game. Pinckney was all over the place until he got injured, I hope he is ok. Also was their first TD good? Replay looked like he bobbled the ball and did not have possession

1mg of Epi, looks like you have a personal grudge against Richt. We have a QB who is way off in his throws and cannot complete simple direct throws at times. You expect the OC call throws to the middle of the field? Well, the ball will be intercepted. In some cases there are plays to the middle of the field, but our QB misses them like he did yesterday on the penultimate drive. Malik is what he is and our coaches are playing him to his strengths.

Go Canes!

I think the whole "We are more talented on offense than the teams we face every week" right now is utter bs.

There were multiple series on offense yesterday where we had two copletely green true freshmen at WR along with Berrios, another true freshman at RG and Choc our third stringer at RB.

Not to mention a pretty streaky QB making only the sixth start of his careers

We are not nearly deep or experienced enough on offense for the claims some are constantly rhrowing out there.

You act as if losing the two most important players we have on offense dont matter or impact how DCs have to game plan for us.

We've won 10 straight fellas, some of them against damn good defenses.

Yesterday at around 2:30 p.m. OC Mark Richt went to see HC Mark Richt.
Here's the inside scoop:

Richt (OC) to Richt (HC): Hey Boss, we've got an issue. I came up with a great idea for another last minute winning drive.
Richt (HC): So what's the problem?
Richt (OC): I think we're so much better than GT that this game is over by the third quarter. I thought about calling the same unsuccessful play everytime we get close to the end zone, but that might not do it.
Richt (HC): I could talk to Manny to spot them two easy touchdowns after long drives in the first quarter.
Richt (OC): Sounds good. But what if we still got it under control at halftime?
Richt (HC): Then I call an onside kick to start the second half which we fail to pick up. Braxton is smart enough to stay away from the ball.
Richt (OC): Boss, you're simply the best. Can't wait to show what we're going to do at the end.
Richt (HC): Just being curious - doesn't Malik complain that he'll look like crap in the first half again?
Richt (OC): Not at all. He's so happy that he no longer has to hold a clipboard and watch failure, he'll do anything we ask him to.
Richt (HC): Nice. See you later.

Posted by: TruCane81 | October 15, 2017 at 02:15 AM

On the game winning drive, he ran the same play some 6 times though. Lets be clear though, Richt is an average OC at best. Bubble screens (although well exectuted) and deep throws are all this guy calls... I take that back, he did try to have Rosier complete a 10 yard out to Harley, lol. Richt isnt making life easy on his QB. I love Richt as a CEO. He'e easy going, honest, charismatic, etc, but he really needs to fire himself as OC if we are going to take the next step. Its just too big of a job.

I laughed out loud when I read this.

Only cause unc sucks and that was my first reaction to the idea of them beating tech.

Then I thought, " but Clemson just lost so..
....".

Would be nice. Unc is good for a sneaky upset, even when bad. They could sneak vt or US!

Acc is scary this year.

There is only one thing for certain in this league this year.

The Miami Hurricanes DO NOT QUIT!

No other team in the league has shown our fight and resilience. This bodes well for a playoff shot going forward.

The d will have let downs, but are solid and can take us where we need be, especially playing with the lead.

Offensive execution on players parts, starting with Rosier, is definitely an issue.

My problem with Richt is not helping them develop rhythm quicker with a more creative variety of "easy" plays and ignoring basic passing concepts that are unstoppable when actually used.

Much less talented teams are outperforming us statistically all over the nation. It is making games unnecessarily perilous.

We are favored from here to the acccg.

Think about that.

When teams run plays that work on us, they do it over and over, til we stop it and win or dont and lose.

Neither can I. OL, CB, S, RB depth... anything else I'm missing? They arent there yet. This is a team that could win the Coastal or finish 2nd. Clemson would likely handle us in the ACC CG. The defense is good enough to keep us in every game we play. When the rest of the team catches up to our front 7, then we will be back. If we keep hitting milestones and goals, I figure we can talk of being back in 2019-20 season. I dont think Richt is organized enough on O for that to happen. Then again, Rosier isnt elite, just capable, so if Perry develops by next year into a QB that gives people problems, we could be a playoff team a year ahead of time.

We are "cham0ionship level Epi.

We just dont have complete championship depth.

If we call a good game, there is only one team in the country that is head and shoullders above us.

Even they can be had with our offensive weapons

Everyone else has shortcomings just like us.

For us to actually overcomre our shortfalls and go from championship level to actual champion, we need something from Richt we have only seen once in Coral Gables: Call a great game from start to finish.

We have had the talent for a dark horse run for years.

Just never had the coaching.

We do now. They just have to go from very, very good to the next level, which is Saban and Meyer territory.

Go Canes!

U know I'm right.

That's pretty lofty praise right there? U beleive that, or just still buzzing from the win?

I believe it. Look at all the good teams going down with a loss to inferior teams this weekend. Great teams find a way to win under adversity, when things aren't going well. I was very impressed with how the Canes team struggled to win and made plays under pressure in the fourth quarter on both sides of the ball. The Canes stayed together and never gave up, no matter how bleak.

I don't think the Canes have hit their stride yet. The Canes have not yet learned how to execute this offense and defense at a consistent high level. Last season, the all the Canes 9 wins were blowouts (approx 14+) and the losses were close (approx -7). The difference is this year, the Canes are now winning the close games that they lost last season. There are reasons for it, but those reasons are to wait and see where

I noticed that the Canes left a lot of plays out there today, and the hope is as the season moves along, the Canes will start executing consistently and at a High level, as the Canes started to do at the end of the 2016 season when they won five games in a row by double digits.

What that is, is the blueprint out there right now. Those are the things Miami needs to prove they can handle.

A lot of that can be remedied by play selection
