Another resounding victory for Bama and stellar recruiting.
STARS MATTER

BigWindyCane1

UCF finished #6 in the final AP poll, and the Canes finish #13, behind #11 Notre Dame. But UCF did receive 4 first place votes.

Frankly, I would like to see UCF play Alabama to settle this controversy once and for all on the field - a bunch of 2-3 star players playing against the 4-5 star players. I think it would be a very interesting game, but college football politics will never let that happen.

Except for Scott Frost of course who would have won last night's game easily.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 09, 2018 at 08:31 AM

He beat Auburn (whit 1/3 of the talent) that beat both teams that played last night.

Go Canes!!

One more thing about last night's game.

It's really amazing how that offense could go from so abysmal to lights out in one half.

Same OC, same QB coach, same type of plays drawn up.

But man what a difference when there is a guy under center who can execute all aspects of it.

Two seasons ago we could throw but our QB was completely immobile. This year our QB was very below average throwing the ball but could make plays with his legs.

Really hope Perry can be the two headed monster we've been looking for.

When did I ever say this? But no... I'll never sh*t on a man that manned up and did the best he could do to help give us one of our best seasons in 15yrs. He has my respect

Satan playing Tau wasn't a tough decision for him to make... it was the easiest!

His Royal Dudeness

Tau was extrememly lucky that his bad pass into the endzone came up in Ridley's hands. That ball was being thrown to another player but Ridley basically picked it off.

His Royal Dudeness

UGA defense totally failed on that last Seattle call. Credit to Tau who looked the S off, but I bet you he never knew that WR was sooooo open after the CB just let the kid go.

His Royal Dudeness

10th coach needs to be an OC that can coach ST & LBs also.

^^^ And can recruit DTs.

Go Canes!!

From Twitter:

A few years ago Nick Saban told me this about depth and making it to the playoff: "It factors into getting to this point in the season. If you don’t have quality depth on your team, maybe you can’t make it to this point in the season. You have to be fortunate..."

How's this for depth:
LT Jonah Williams goes down, replace him w the No. 8 overall prospect in his class
You replace your starting QB w the No. 1 ranked dual-threat QB in his class, 57 overall
Need a boost in the run game so you put in your 4th stringer, No. 11 overall prospect

And unless the assumption is that CMR is a better coach than Saban in many ways, we can dream on if we think that we will not only compete, but beat Bama in any years to come while trying to play their game against their resources. We have to do thing different and somehow better.

Watching this makes me sad sorry I just don't believe in MR anymore


It been said that Perry is the best player on the TEAM but let save him for next year

Posted by: SinisterCane | January 08, 2018 at 10:38 PM

Perry was a late enrollee. Ever think he never had grasp of the playbook? Now if he was an early enrollee and was their for the spring then there is no doubt he would of got significant playing time, if not the starting job.

thirstybuzzardcane

*there

No way Miami is a #5 team going into next year. I would put them at 10-15.

Go Canes!!

Canes finish #13 in the final rankings, highest since 2004.

Somehow behind Notre Dame, of course.

Don't no why I can't post on my phone? Anyone have any ideas? That's why I've been MIA. I guess I'll have to use my computer at work.

Thirsty if you get out of this completely and delete your history it will usually start working again.

Maybe turn your phone off and on just to be sure.

His Royal Dudeness

Does anyone know the latest on DT Jamarcus Chatman? I know we wanted him early on but I think he committed to an SEC school, but last I saw on Rivals hes not committed to anyone right now. He's a real physical player that could add enough good weight by September. With Nesta and Briggs, that makes a nice little DT class.

His Royal Dudeness

I know I keep saying this but we need Jon Ford to be the man next year.

According to Ariz there is no contact between coach Kul and Chatman. Does coach know this kid has decommitted from Tennessee?

Damn, tried all that a still nothing. I can read everything and type, but won't let me push preview or post. Oh, well!

TonyCane

I don’t have time to run the what-if story in detail, but here is what we risked this year in starting Perry from day 1

- Perry does not know the playback as well as Rozier or Sherrifs. We have to simplify the offense to start
- Perry lacks a year in a college strength and conditioning program, and his slight frame makes him an injury risk
- Perry gets injured in the FSU game, leaving us to start Evan Sherrifs or Vase Weldon the rest of the season...because Rozier transferred out in August.
- Miami goes 7-5 for the season, and takes a hit in recruiting. It does not make the ACC title game

Not going with Perry from the getgo allowed Richt the time to get him more up to speed and keep Rozier in-house. It preserved flexibility so that if Perry showed rapid improvement and Rozier flames out, he could make the switch. However Rozier played relatively well until the later quarter of the season, so there was no pressing need to make th switch. And by the time it did become a viable question, you then had to weigh the benefits of burning Perry’s redshirt for the ACC title game. Richt May have calculated that without Richards, Herndon, and Walton available that the odds were against them making a NC run, and that it made more sense to keep Perry grounded.

Imo he, like Garvin would have been a Top 100 player the moment he committed to Bama, Michigan or Ohio State.

Think he’s going to be a very good one.

He’d be a fantastic addition to this staff in so many ways.

Would love to see this happen.

CaneRock

If this is confirmed, I assume Richt will ease KD11 into playcalling duties like He did Bobo at UGA, although I would think KD11's transition will be more expedited than Bobo's.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CaneRock | January 09, 2018 at 01:17 PM

Even if Richt keeps calling them, it would hopefully breathe new life and a fresh perspective into the actual plays.

His Royal Dudeness

Ken Dorsey fired.

Go Canes!!

This would be great:

The ACC has proposed (for everyone) to allow players to play in any four games and still count for a redshirt. The AFCA has been pushing for this. Would be effective next year and not retroactive. #AFCA2018

KD is a Play Action guy. Also CIS said assistant HC, but Kul already is.

This could change after the combine and pro day...

The lack of guaranteed 1-3 rounders is the proof in the pudding.

I think next year's team will have several


Go Canes!!

Thanks TD. I’ll never get that site. Can never figure out what’s current so I never go on it. Just follow them on twitter.

Co imo Chad will be our first player drafted.

CGNC

Saban will coach another year and get another NC to beat Bear Bryant's record and then who knows, he might retire - he is 66 now.

KD belongs at the U.

I would love for Ken Dorsey to come back to Miami as our OC. His experience working with Cam will be invaluable with the two new QB's that are "on-deck" for spring practice. I'm not sure Shula would consider UM but he would be an improvement as well. I'm sure Jon Gruden will take a look at both for the Raiders, but IMO it's time for Ken to move up to OC, and I think a college team is the best place to make that jump.

Go 'canes!!

Has anyone ever seen him actually coach enough to know if he's any good though? Is a professional that is committed to perfecting his craft or is he just a dude hanging out and collecting a paycheck? I'd kind of like to see him go coach under another big time coach for a season, then go OC somewhere, then join us... of course having Dorsey around would be pretty damn cool.

Sarasota 'cane

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | January 09, 2018 at 04:53 PM

I've only heard about Ken at the H.S. level when he was coaching QB's and receivers at Lakewood Ranch H.S. My old boss' kid was a receiver at Lakewood and the "football dad's" loved him. It wasn't long before he was gone to the NFL. I don't think Ken is gonna break anything at Miami. He's been working with a dual-threat headache for years!! LOL!!

Go 'canes!!

And speaking of McIntosh & Norton, why is the deadline for underclassmen to declare before Pro Day, and not after?

Posted by: WWIN | January 09, 2018 at 06:19 PM

All that matters is winning the game. Honestly, if he was a difference maker, he probably coild have swung at SABAN and all that would happen is that he would forced to sit out a series until he cooled down.

That said, now that the championship is won I would not be surprised to see this guy announce that he is "transferring".

roachcane77

Yeah... The Refs didn't do UGA any favors...
1) The bad Offside call on the punt block.
2) The missed facemask call against Bama which would have resulted in a 1st down when UGA was backed up in their own end.
3) The "lack of a call" on the "extra" mashing of the helmet to the turf which also would have been an automatic 1st down.

Any, and especially ALL 3 of those calls made properly, and the game has a far different outcome IMHO.

Posted by: 86Cane | January 09, 2018 at 08:24 PM

Vilma needs to cut his teeth with Butch 1st and then with someone outside of the program like Carroll or Gruden. Thats the recipe for being able to hang with the big dog programs on staff. We need a future coaches program at The U; if we cant afford the top teachers then we need to groom them. Barrow is the man I think, LB coach under Carroll, Miami pedigree... We could give him LBs/STs & assistant DC. Also having a CBs coach & a S coach really isnt using numbers wisely. Need 1 of those guys to move.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: 86Cane | January 09, 2018 at 08:26 PM

Realistic expectation is repeat Coastal Champions. We have too many holes that still have questions... QB, OT, TE & DT. So much talent is so young ot not even on the roster yet. We have to stay calm that the meat is seasoning before the cooking. Richt is not the best chef in the world, we all know that he needs all of the best ingredients to succeed, so expecting him to do anything more at this point wouldnt be realistic. It is realistic though to expect him to make smart hires at this point. 10th coach can be hired tomorrow... All of the really organized coaches that win a bunch have someone ready to go, Richt does not so far as we know. Thats worrisome.

Something tells me the 2018 season comes down to on the road at VT. We are no where good enough to expect to be better than them. Hopefully they have Clemson because we have to play FSU every damn year. 2018 is another massive trial for us to assert ourselves. Again, Richt is no Jim Harbaugh or Urban Meyer. He's gonna need a bunch of top classes before he can be really competitive.

BigWindyCane1

Atholon has the Canes ranked at #5, while ESPN has the Canes at #7. Other sites have the Canes ranked at #9. Any time you think of dropping the Canes lower, just look at the teams ranked higher and ask if they are better. Better QB play and the added offensive weapons will make a huge difference

Neither of those guys has won anything without overwhelming talent. Harbaugh has actually done far less than Richt has done. Michigan was awful.

And for all the accolades we throw on Saban, he's a play or two away from being 0 for his last three title shots with BY FAR the most talent of any team in the country.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 09, 2018 at 09:12 PM

Harbaugh made Stanford a Pac 12 powerhouse and the 49ers a SB contender. Urban Meyer turned Utah into a respectable school and won 2 titles at Florida, 1 of which came in his 2nd year with a sophmore loaded defense. As for Saban, his system is the perfect example of what can be done with resources. This is a terrible line of argument.

QB is a good place to start. Plus, a healthy Richards, Pope, Lingard, Jordan, Davis, Mallory and the development of Thomas and Perry will give the Canes an explosive offense

Go Canes!!

TD Richt turned a terrible, terrible Georgia program into a powerhouse for 15 years and won us the Coastal for the first time ever in his second year.

That's more than Harbaugh has done at the college level. Don't think his Michigan teams, despite excellent recruiting, have won a big game his entire tenure.

And we all know how loaded the UF and OSU teams were Meyer took over.

Meyer is one of the greats, but he hasnt won a NC without complete, super talented teams.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | January 09, 2018 at 09:03 PM

We still have massive question marks...

OT, QB, DT, TE

some we have on the roster, others likely wont come in #Storm18

We are getting close to the finish line and still need

1 DT, 1 OT, 1 LB, 1 DE & 1 CB minimum. We could still use another OT & DT after that. Im just talking playable bodies to throw at depth right now.

We may be the 10th ranked team in the country, but not much seperates us from 20.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | January 09, 2018 at 09:24 PM

If that OL isnt setting the edge, Lingard as good as he is wont be able to break loose. Perry is a RSFR, we will see if he has what it takes when the lights are on, dude hasnt taken a single snap and has no legit run game to lean on, and he needs another OT to step up. God forbid there are any injuries. There will be weapons, but without an effective OL, you get 3 and out.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 09, 2018 at 09:24 PM

I respect what Richt has done in his career, but Harbaugh or Meyer he is not. Meyer went undefeated at Utah for Christs sake and Harbaugh turned Stanford into a Pac 12 power. Seriously... not even a debate, those guys are a notch above. Im not even knock8ng Richt, many coaches have titles that arent as good as Richt.
