Miami will be back when certain conditions are met.

In no specific order.

1) Innovative offense that maximizes our natural advantages, SPEED. (Spread O)

2) Getting all of the elite talent to stay home. This means every year getting all of the best WRs, RBs, OL, DL, LBs, DBs that Miami has to offer. All of them.

3) An aggressive defense that maximizes our natural advantages, SPEED.

4) A fun atmosphere that generates the buzz we need to fill Hard Rock with casual fans on games we host recruits.

I do think we should have a program for potential coaches also. We should invest in a guy like Dorsey if he is serious about coaching and not just a dude collecting a paycheck. We should ask him what role he'd like to have at Miami and send him somewhere to get that experience, it may pay off down the road like Scott Frost is for Nebraska.

^^^ To do all these things you need a HC and admin that sees the bigger picture and makes the right organizational moves.

Plus, a healthy Richards, Pope, Lingard, Jordan, Davis, Mallory and the development of Thomas and Perry will give the Canes an explosive offense

But only if we find a way to USE THEM.

The use of the TE this past season was CRIMINAL.

The refusal to throw over the middle was IGNORANT.

The failure tom use our speed was NEGLIGENT.

Need an OC, a new offense and creative play calling. When the fans in the stands are calling the plays based on formation before they even begin it is BAD.

86Cane

Stockpiling talent is good.

Using it wisely and correctly is better.

Mike Yurcich is a name we should look at for the offense.

Shane Beamer for ST/LB.

Go Canes!!

Eason gone from Georgia. Fromm looked great for most of last night.

Going to a very good QB coach in Chris Petersen.

CaneRock

Richt's predecessor (Jim Donnan) was 40-19, so Richt didn't exactly take over a totally downtrodden UGA program.

Richt inherited a team with David Greene, Musa Smith, Randy McMichael, Ben Watson, & Terrence Edwards...that offense was similar to the one He inherited at UM...and they went 13-1 in Richt's 2nd year.

Paul Johnson...“When’s the last time the University of Georgia didn’t have a top-10 recruiting class? So Coach (Vince) Dooley was a great recruiter, Ray Goff was a great recruiter, Jim Donnan was a great recruiter, Mark Richt’s a great recruiter, Kirby Smart’s a great recruiter. Who was a bad one? Because I don’t remember them having a coach when they weren’t top 10.”

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^ PJ's basically saying UGA recruits itself.

86Cane

Just like UF and FSU? Or like Miami?

Go Canes!!

Georgia had two 10 win seasons from 1984 to 2000.

Somehow they managed to not recruit themselves for those sixteen years.

Richt's teams did it 10 times over the next 15 seasons.

Basically Richt inherited a talented but underperforming team and made them better. But his window of time to win before Urban Meyer brought the Jun Horde to Florida and Alabama decided to put $1.1B into its football program.

BigWindyCane1

UGA has the #1 class so far, and the even picked up four recruits from our Miami-Dade high school backyard - three four star recruits in CB Divaad Wilson, CB Nadab Johnson and RB James Cook and one three star, Safety Rashad Wildgoose.

So Richt went 13-1 in 02' with a team full of freshmen & sophomores?

Didn’t even realize it was u posting that dude... I’d prolly have figured u were being sarcastic.

86Cane

Go Canes posting comments is more biased than CNN.

Terrance Sullivan

Go Canes preach man. Lol CR stop the crap. Donnan underperformed at UGA he was the typical 8-5 coach at UGA. Donnan was a upgrade over the 7-6 Ray Golff era. But oh the 10-3 Mark Richt was just some dude lol. UGA has what 20 10 win seasons since what 1950. 10 times under Richt in his 15 years there yeah he is just another coach lol. Some of y'all posts are more biased than Fox News and CNN and MSNBC since all that crap is biased whether Conservative or Liberal.

Go Canes!!

Yes your rants about ineptitude across the board last night were rooted in facts while I totally fabricated Richts record st UGA.

Oh wait...

Aerocane

86 - you are spot on! Need to use our weapons i.e. Speed on offense and yes he was negligent on not.
I think we will be fine at qb - perry and a better rosier as backup; tight end - Jordan and Irvin (Mallory will redshirt) and running back - lingard, homer deejay and Davis is an amazing backfield and we really need help on OL and DL; Mac and Norton made huge mistakes - lost themselves a lot of money by being ignorant and Leaving a year too early

Go Canes!!

Honest question, what speed on this team did we not TRY to get the ball to this season?

CoCane

McIntosh can show out at the combine and sneak in to the late first round at best. He will be a athletic freak. Most likely he goes in the 2nd or 3rd round at worst. I don't agree but I get him declaring early.

Norton... Wtf is he thinking? He may not get selected until the 6th or 7th round. Late 4th or 5th at best. Somebody needed to slap some sense into him before he signs with an agent. 😩

Too late

According to Barry Jackson, Norton was the one that was more definitive about his decision to go pro, and Norton was the one to sway McIntosh to turn pro. Interesting.

As per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald:

McINTOSH INSIGHT

On Tuesday morning, Richard McIntosh Sr. gave some insight into the process that resulted in his son, Richard Jr, bypassing his senior year at UM to turn pro. Some draftniks project him as a third-round pick.

Some newsy items from the phone conversation:

▪ McIntosh Sr. said Kendrick Norton decided to turn pro before Richard did and “once Norton made that decision, that helped convince Richard. I don’t know how they got to that.

“I don’t know what pushed Norton over the hump. If Norton had stayed, Richard would have. He felt it would be hard to come back without having Norton. I always felt it was going to be what one does the other one wanted to do, that’s how close they are.”

McIntosh is considered a better prospect than Norton. The two juniors are roommates and close friends.

▪ McIntosh Sr. said the feedback from the draft advisory board was that Richard wasn’t projected to be selected in the first two rounds, but “some said second, third. Majority said third. Some said third, fourth; one said fifth round.”

▪ He said Richt, defensive coordinator Manny Diaz and defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski — during their meeting with the McIntoshes on Saturday — said they were told he would likely be a third- or fourth-round pick, but that agents told the McIntosh family that he would be picked “late first or no later than the third round.”

▪ How did the three UM coaches try to sell McIntosh on returning for his senior season?

They cited research that players who get their degree “can sustain a longer career in the league,” McIntosh Sr. said.

“They talked about doing things to increase his production on the field and that was intriguing to him also. They talked about things that increase his play on the field, such as playing on third downs.”

And coaches tried “to convince them how special the defense could really be. And being there their senior year and having their degree — those things weighed on him.”

McIntosh Sr. said the UM coaches flew to Jacksonville to meet with Norton after their meeting with them.

▪ I asked McIntosh’s father if Richt & Co. mentioned questionable early-entrant decisions made last year by quarterback Brad Kaaya (sixth round) and running back Joe Yearby (undrafted and out of football).

McIntosh Sr. declined to say what names were mentioned on the negative side but said Richt “mentioned several players good and bad and the risks you take by doing it.” 

He confirmed that tight end David Njoku, drafted by Cleveland in the first round, was one successful go-pro-early example that Richt mentioned.

Go Canes!!

I wonder what Norton was told.

Do some guys just have a certain amount of skill and talent that maybe he wouldn’t have benefited in the draft by staying another year? It’s not like he didn’t get enough plays or underperformed this year.

What if they told him rounds 4-6 this year or 3-5 next year if he blew up next year.

Don’t know, just curious.

CaneRock

I didn't say Richt was a middle of the road coach, I was responding to the post that said Richt took over a "terrible, terrible Georgia program".

My point was that UGA wasn't destitute for talent when Richt took over.

If I had to guess, UGA probably ran a 3 yards & a cloud of dust offense under Richt's predecessors...Richt came in with the FBO (Fast Break Offense), and the rest was history.

CF is all about maximizing time. The 10th coach can be hired today. Where is the 10th coach?

Go Canes!!

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | January 10, 2018 at 09:36 AM


A lot of people grew impatient on how long his original hires took too.

FWIW heard Romberg on the radio this morning, didn't seem at all convinced Dorsey would come here. Said he knows a lot of people and his rep is very good in the NFL.

Go Canes!!

@PeterAriz: Miami’s #Storm18 EEs begin moving in over the next 2 days. Updates as they arrive, but expected EEs include D.J. Ivey, Gilbert Frierson, Gurvan Hall, Lorenzo Lingard, Jarren Williams, John Campbell, Delone Scaife, Brian Hightower, Dee Wiggins, Greg Rousseau, Bubba Baxa

His Royal Dudeness

Its not a good sign Go. Organization and time management are key to CF. We have the ability to have a 10th coach that we arent getting for training, recruiting, etc. I would have liked to see our CEO have a clear plan of attack on this hire. If this thing turns out really uninspired, it wont go over well. Anyways, not the end of the world but its another questionable thing going on.

Ariz: Goss OV on 1/26. NP-F not happening.

Go Canes!!

Don’t know if this will actually be a disadvantage for us since we already play so many freshmen.

AFCA executive director Todd Berry says there’s “unanimous support” among coaches for a new redshirt rule, allowing redshirting player to play in 4 games.

IDK about not throwing it to the fast guys, but I do think Richt needs to take advantage of Homers speed outta the backfield more often.

Like on that tunnel screen to Berrios...the better option would've been to Homer who had a LB on em'.

Also size mismatches, like on a slant to Berrios in the bowl game...the better option would've been to go to Langham who had a "mouse in the house" on His slant.

I dont think we are going to get that. I think what we need is UGA's OL, Bama's RBs, OkST's WRs and Clemson's QB to run this O.

His Royal Dudeness

First of all I want to heap a bunch of praise onto this coaching staff for what #Storm18 already is, outstanding. The talent level of these kids coming in are far and away better than the last staff. Richt's staff will be starting at a more advanced stage than Golden's or Shannon's staff ever did. That said, we can not let what we have done blind us to the work that is still needed to be done. Here is my opinion on the bare minimum needs we still have for NSD.

1 OT. Assuming everyone steps up, STL locks in at LT, Donaldson or Hillery at RT, Scaife can fill in for injury, we still need at least 1 guy to come in that can realistically start by 2020.

2 or 3 DTs. Assuming Ford is the man at 6'5" 310 and he's just a big bad bully, and that Willis is a dynamite rusher, and Nesta is a monster, and Bethel can spell Willis effectively, we still need a JC guy that can help Ford and another DT to develop like Briggs.

1 LB or 1 DE. Just depends on what Rousseau is. In fact because no one really knows what he is, its better to play it safe and get 1 of each.

1 DB. Probably a CB so Blades can move to FS. Whoever it is he needs to be able to play at Miami as at least a Mike Jackson type. We cant be taking projects anymore at DB, we are so close to having a really good unit.

If we cant close with these guys, it should be considered a battle lost, even if the overall 2018 war is a win.

2019
1 QB
2 RB
2 WR
2 OT
2 G or 1 G, 1 C
2 DE
2 DT
2 LB
2 CB
2 S

Bare Minimum. JMO.

His Royal Dudeness

I know it may seem like I am down on CMR with a few of my last statements, but that couldnt be further than the truth, Im just telling you why he simply cant be considered an elite coach yet. I cant tell you what a big deal it is just to be back at the table again with some of the SEC schools. Winning the Coastal is nothing to take lightly when you consider where weve been. Hard Rock going big on game nights again. Seriously CMR has been a huge shot of good drugs to the program.

I thought I had a sweet gig but I need your HRD I was always wanted to go Big Sky country. I read about a Lake in the Northwest not sure which state but you can see the Northern Lights.

Terrance Sullivan

Great work His Royal Dudeness.

One more thing we do not want Donaldson at T he is a guard. That was the problem this year with McDoormat playing out of postion just because he was our best lineman. What we need is two guys one at tackle and one at guard to replace the left side of the line. If that happens then you'll know what are offensive line is going to play like. It's imperative that two guys not ND and TSL have stepped up and allow the right side of the line maintain their continuity.

Totally Agree!!

From Twitter:

UPDATE: LSU officially announced Steve Ensminger will be Matt Canada’s replacement at OC.

That’s like trading in a Benz for a 2002 Saturn because the voice in the navigation system isn’t sexy enough.
