Been meaning to post this for a while...

The turnover chain. Pure. Fvcking. Genius.

Im with Go....

You don't stack talent and stumble to mediocrity with a good coaching staff.

Best line on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee last night

Crimson Tide sounds like a really heavy period.

Go Canes!!

I judge them based on how they’ve recruited. Sumlin’s classes have been excellent over his tenure there, Top 10 nationally over the last 5 years.

https://n.rivals.com/news/rivals-top-50-recruiting-teams-of-the-past-five-years

The last four years he’s gone 8-5, 8-5, 8-5 and is currently 6-4 without a single quality win.

Those are Al Golden numbers with better recruiting classes, better facilities and no scandals.

Having been in Austin for a while now...I’m not sold on Houston as tha sleeping giant. To awaken, they would have to retain an Art Briles or Tom Herman. Right now they are a way station for young, promising coaches. There was a window of opportunity for Houston had Herman stayed, but that’s closed for now. And Houston is not part of a Power 5 conference, and will likely never be part of the Big 12 due to political issues with UT. I think Houston’s ceiling is equivalent to the level Texas Tech achieved under Captain Mike “Sprarrow” Leach.

Texas A&M is it’s own unique case. They are fanatical about football, but will always be #2 to UT in perception. And they cannot stand it...to the point that they switched conferences. A&M actually thinks that they can land Nick Saban..and that said they are crazy enough to put together a ludicrous enough package at the expense of the university to actually make it tempting.

I was wrong about that Heisman part. I forgot Manziel. I stand by the rest

Tonycane

Terrance...if you build it (winning streak), they will come.

I only wish Yamma Yamma was on the sidelines of The Rock to complete the picture.

You think to highly of the program. Name me an occassion when that program was any higher than the best of Louisville or Baylor at their peaks. They have also spent 9 figures on their programs. A&M ain't worth the feces coloring of their uniforms. Honestly Houston is the sleeping giant in that state. Houston has a Heisman winner more recently than A&M does and a much better recruiting base.

Go Canes!!

CR they’ve invested literally hundreds of millions into that program this decade. He’s had very good recruiting classes.

They should be a lot better.

This year he’s gotten them to six wins but they’re against Nichols State, Louisiana Tech, Arkansas in OT, South Carolina, New Mexico and the Turds by 2.

Oof.

They should be better.

That program itself is a serial underachiever for all the so called talent that they get...Sumlin's got em' as relevant as they've ever been and probably will be. Like I said, the only way I fire Sumlin is for a HR hire like Kelly.

Go Canes!!

Said multiple times on here he was a fraud that wouldn’t have Jameis there to clean up all the messes forever.

That second Winston team would have lost 4-5 games with just about any other QB.

HawaiiCane

Go Canes! you could say the same thing about Jimbo and Winston and/or Cook. Fisher's record without Winston is atrocious.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CaneRock | November 16, 2017 at 12:01 PM

And you have to ask yourself why is a true freshman starting.

He’s had multiple 4-5 Star QBs sign and bolt there the last few years.

Go Canes!!

Kevin Sumlin is so, so overrated. They’ve given him every possible thing a coach could want or need all he does is underachieve.

Record with Johnny Football is 20-6
Record without him is 30-19

He’s a dead man walking.

Whatever are you implying? Lol. If A&M & FSU swapped HCs, FSU would get the better end of the deal.

Terrance Sullivan

CaneRock Texas A&M is going to Texas A&M. Trust me Kevin Sumlin wont shed any tears He will be head coaching somewhere else more hospitable if you know what I mean next year.

CaneRock

TAMU's better off inquiring about Chip...if the interest is mutual, then you fire Sumlin, anything less, then just go with what you got. I just don't see Jimbo doing well there, He'll suffer the same fate as Strong at UT.

Terrance Sullivan

Canezilla U already know Brotha!

CaneRock

So TAMU's gonna fire a coach that's bowl eligible with a true freshman QB, for a coach that probably won't even sniff a bowl with a true freshman QB?...whu???

Just checked and their are 238 tickets available to purchase on Hurricanesports.com The Athletic Site of our Miami Hurricanes to a Hard Sellout. I aint talking secondary market like Stub Hub those tickets are already accounted for in ticket sales. so in closing if the remaining 238 tickets get purchased between now and Saturday. I expect they will be gone by Today if not tomorrow morning. The Attendance the last 3 Games will be 63,932 for Virginia Tech, 65,326 for Notre Dame, and 65,326 for Virginia. Wowza. and we will have drawn over 406,000 for the 7 games combined for averaging over 58,000 fans this year. We averaged over 58,000 fans last year as well but in 6 games. So if we are averaging 58,326 in a 65,326 Stadium Capacity I will gladly take that. that's a 89% usage. I can dig it. keep it going.

We are second in the nation in turnover margin.

But I believe we are very low in avg points scored off turnovers which is a bad thing and a bit of a reason for concern.

I hope to be watching from the comforts of 86's couch..... after playing 18 holes of course :-)

There IT is right there.

Our turnover numbers are for our 9 games, other teams have played 10 and 11 games. It is likely we would be #1 if he had played 10 or 11 games.

So somebody did their homework. U are correct Sir!

Love It! LOOOOOOL

UMike

Just saw the promo commercial for Saturday's game... ESPN is loving us now...and once again giving us some great free recruiting. That was an awesome promo

Old Skool

Good Point Hassan

WHEN I WATCH COACH TALK IT SEEMS LIKE HE WILL FALL ASLEEP AT ANY SECOND.. SO U GUYS SATURDAY

Go Canes!!

This one too:

Opponents are scoring TDs just 30% of the time they get to the Red Zone against the @BadgerFootball defense. This is the best at the FBS level. Next best are @NIU_Football and @CanesFootball.

Go Canes!!

Great teams have this trait:

Just 7.69% of the TDs allowed by @CanesFootball this year have come from plays being run from outside of the Red Zone. This is the lowest percent of any FBS team in 2017.

Go Canes!

Very good point HillView.

HillViewCane

FSU hasn't been the same since the whole alleged thing with Jimbo's wife/ex and that Gator Taylor Jacobs. I don't know what comes first the chicken or the egg(theoretically). However it's been downhill since that whole fiasco. Going from kissing on screen to a joke. Hey it's life but I don't know why he wouldn't want a fresh start somewhere else. It's been downhill since then.

Go Canes!

I don't know that CMR even wants more money from the school.

He likely has more socked away than he or his family will ever need. This year he made more than $8 million before he gave a cool million to the school for the indoor practice facility.

Really don't believe he is driven by that. But we are likely going to have to pony up again to keep all our assistants, like what we had to do for Coach Kul after last season.

Our turnover numbers are for our 9 games, other teams have played 10 and 11 games. It is likely we would be #1 if he had played 10 or 11 games.

My LOF on defense is REALLY BLOWING UP

As per PBP: Miami safety Jaquan Johnson continues to be recognized as one of the top players in the country.

He was one of four defenders and 15 in total named semifinalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award. Five finalists will be named Nov. 29. The winner is announced Dec. 7.

Shaq's 1st step is outstanding. He sees the run very, very well.

Ive got to get me some of that!

P.S. I got a feeling Lawrence Cager is going to have a big game on Saturday. Look for him.

1mg of Epi

I don't think so. Miami will likely give him a raise - not to $11.2M - but probably around $5M. If we win the NC this year, maybe a bump to $5.5 or $6M, maximum. I just don't see Richt leaving like that.

Posted by: TonyCane | November 15, 2017 at 11:06

I know he ain't leaving. Was just trolling the troll.
