Offensive coordinator Matt Canada and LSU have split in a ‘mutual separation’. Canada was the country’s highest-paid offensive coordinator this season.


All I need to know...buddy wouldn't accept less money so he accepted the Axe!

-"I came to the conclusion going forward the thing we needed to do was bring in a different perspective, different ideas in terms of going forward to what I believe is our ultimate goal, and that is winning a Super Bowl,'' Rivera said after firing Shula and Dorsey.

-One of Turner's strengths has been developing young quarterbacks, such as Troy Aikman, Philip Rivers and Drew Brees. Newton, 28, is coming off his worst two seasons in terms of passer rating.

Who does Cam have to target besides Hurricane Olsen? and even he wasn't 100%.... Blame Dorsey tho!!

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

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 10, 2018 at 08:27 AM

I wouidnt say we didn’t try to get the ball to the fast guys, but how we tried to do it was from a very limited number of plays. Also We too often threw 50/50s in the end zone to short guys. We never used motion to clear out a running or passing lane. We rarely used tempo as a strategy....

Important things when your qb may have been drunk all season

No Jet Sweep to Thomas, no Fake Jet Sweep to Thomas. When we get a man look, we dont run crossing routes short, instead we try deep throws. This is a man up and beat your cover like you are 1st round pick offense.

Where are you heading?

His Royal Dudeness

One thing I think Richt shares in common with elite ciaches is, his ability to get players on board with his way to do something and he does it by getting them to trust him. Saban & Carroll have this. When a player keeps messing up a drill by not using the right technique a bunch, its usually because he thinks his way is better, he doesnt trust the coach is trying to teach him a new habit that will make him a better player. This is the same thing that happens in work places around America really. Its the great managers/coaches that get people to buy into the process and the processes accountability. The next step to football greatness is being an expert in tried and true drills, while being open minded to new ideas. You cant demand that every one should grow if you yourself will not. I also think that great coaches run their practices down to the smallest details in methodical way. Every second has meaning, no waste, its a fluid machine that can answer any question that may arise, theres always an answer because every possible thing has been thought up, at least damned near close. I think so far, if you are really striving to create a football environment that I am describing, you will try to surround yourself with highly qualified people that know their jobs. The last stage, the Nick Saban stage if you will. You are now coacbhing coaches to manage your machine. They get it now, youve opened their eyes to the massive amount of effort it takes to make this thing right and now you are passing the gift down to the next guys.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ Alot of typos sorry. I almost always post from my phone. Still I think that suns it up pretty well. That is in my opinion a great coaches checklist. That can be done at any school im America to varying degrees. I think there are 1 or 2 traits that Richt needa to work on, jmo.

His Royal Dudeness

Look at Saban's hire of Derrick Ansley. Im telling you its perfect. He brings in a guy that worked under Mark Stoops as a DB coach to coach his DBs and teach him his system. Now Ansley is off to CSU to coordinate a defense. If he does well, he'll be back to take the place of whoever Saban chooses to replace Pruitt who is off to Tennessee.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ Thats the last stage, your system is so good, you just manage your managers.

His Royal Dudeness

If I were Miami, I'd be trying to get my former players into coaching under elite coaches, some within the program and some from the outside. Like right now, Dorsey needs to get himself on one of those great staffs where you develop as a coach. Maybe move himself into the OC role later. Then maybe Miami can have an experienced OC or future HC option.

His Royal Dudeness

Miami needs offensive help, help at LB and at ST for their 10th coach.

Lets say its an OC... we want to hire someone who has successfully coordinated an offense for about 3 years, and comes from a place where the HC grooms good coaches. Also we need to know Miami doesnt have the pull power to tale from the top programs, this leaves UGA, Bama, Ohio State, LSU, Auburn, USC, etc as teams we can not take from. We need to look for guys that come from places like Oklahoma State. Mike Yurcich please everyone! A Gundy graduate with Miami talent could be very high scoring.

LB & ST. Here we can poach a position coach from one of the big dogs that is looking to build his resume and add coordinator experience to his name, or we can go the OKST route again and poach a ST coordinator from a school like Kansas State where Sean Snyder may need to build his resume if he ever wants to be a HC.

What I dont want to see is a last minute hey I knew a guy once from UGA hire.

Go Canes!!

We play a ton of young guys on special teams, true freshmen included.

Kansas State probably redshirts about 90% of their roster so they likely have guys with 3-4 years experience out there.

Sorry TD: SOURCE: former #Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich is the new Chicago Bears OC. Adam Schefter was the 1st to reporter the move.

Chris Partridge is my number 2. Lets go get a coach!

TonyCane

Go Canes...true, and at times an absurd amount of their roster are JUCOs. It’s the biggest reason they were able to dominate us in 2012 - we had a high amount of freshmen playing, and they had a high amount of 22 and 23 year olds who had three to to four years of strength and conditioning under them.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: TonyCane | January 11, 2018 at 12:29 PM

Who are we gonna be though? The team that gets JUCOs and builds up 3 stars or the team that gets talented 4s and 5s that go pro early. Neither is an excuse for poor ST play. We must have a plan for excellent ST play and it cant be just the players striving for perferection there. The coaches have a duty to perfect their systems for the athletes they recruit. No wasted time, everything planned out to the smallest detail then executed daily with maximum effort.

Go Canes!!

Just heard Ariz on QAM here locally.

Talked a lot of recruiting but found it interesting he said OT Zakonte Hillery was scout team MVP. Said he coaches love him and Gaynor.

Go Canes!!

Also: “You are upgrading the roster tremendously bringing in this group of guys. If you’re a Canes fan, you have to be very excited about this group of early enrollees.” - @PeterAriz on the new Canes recruits. @560WQAM

Ohio and UMike...My must gets for 2018 are...

Josh Jobe
Mark Pope
Xavier Williams
Gurvan Hall
Lorenzo Linguard
Tyson Campbell

Get this 6 and the class is a automatic A+ 😂! Who y'all got???

Very good news has been around Hillery for a minute. If he can hold down the fort at OT, we have a chance to win the Coastal again.

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^
Right now we're at 50% with the chance to land Campbell

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 11, 2018 at 01:36 PM

The war for 2018 is not over. This class still has holes but it does seem more and more likely that we are going to close with Nesta & Briggs at DT & Chatfield at DE. If Richt can use some of those good Christian values to convince Goss that Miami is the place to be, then its arguably over. I still want to see another LB and Tyson f*cking Campbell, but I'm not getting my hopes up for SoFL's best CB, he & PS2 are SEC bound.

His Royal Dudeness

WW,

I wanted Pope, Schwartz and Moore myself. Speeeeeeeeeeeeeed & spread O.

His Royal Dudeness

Another OC name I like is Jedd Fisch. He's now worked under Harbaugh, Carroll, Mora Jr. & Spurrier, guys that know football. He knows Miami well enough, under Richt he can bring in some new ideas. If Im Richt, Im sending my son off to learn under another HC so he can grow as a coach. Im also gonna zero in on a ST coordinator and possibly move Banda to LBs. I think this move is important for Banda and Rumph if they ever want to be coordinators.

Most feel the same as you probably do, Schwarts is just a track star. I think Dorsett was also coming out of HS. The reason I like Schwarts over the other guys is that I feel Miami should go full blown spread O and I think dude can go ANIMAL in that system.

His Royal Dudeness

*Schwartz* my bad. His name is funny though, its like a white guy being named Deonte Brooks.

Herbieibis

We need more than 1 DE to come in. Lost Harris, Thomas, and Johnson. Garvin and the Jackson boys left, unless I’m forgetting someone. Stated many times we need more than 2 Dt’s This cycle. Campbell is a must get as we need good corners. We have plenty safety types.
Offensively we need tackles. Richt says he wants to add 7 to 8 more players and i’m Wondering where they are coming from aside from Silvera 50-50 guys like Briggs, Campbell and Chat the DE.
We must build depth and quality of talent. If we bring in 25 then at least 16 need to be 4 star or better. Bama already losing 5 JR.S and will just replace them with more 4 and 5 star players, we couldn’t stand those kind of losses. We are still replacing 3 stars with 3 stars.

His Royal Dudeness

I feel like Miami's system should only recruit the absolute fastest guys. We should live and die by it. Speed in space. Talk about a marketing/recruiting gimmick also!

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Herbieibis | January 11, 2018 at 04:27 PM

We can not do that yet. We arent back yet. Thats why I say we need to do things our own way until we can. Speeeeeeed. I do agree we need bodies at DT though. Most people think Briggs is a Miami lean, he just said Miami is in front, hopefully we can lock him up with Nesta and grab a big bodied JC kid. A 4th project kid like Carson would be as good as Miami can hope for at this point.

Randy Russell Career Over!!

His Royal Dudeness

Wow, former #Storm18 recruit Randy Russell's career is over. I guess Florida found some serious condition in him.

Go Canes!!

Two DTs and we will be fine as long as Willis doesn't end up crapping out. DT has to be the toughest position to recruit for, everyone needs one and there aren't enough good ones to go around.

We already have Ford, WIllis and Bethel. We'll be getting one the best in the country in Silvera and one of the tops in the stat in Briggs.

Can't do anything about the fact DJ decided to bail and Norton/McIntosh both left early.

And as far as replacing 3 stars with 3 Stars, that's simply not true.

We have 19 signees and 14 are ESPN 300 4 star players. That's with DJ Ivey and Scaife, who was dominant as you can get in the Army game, listed as 3 Stars, which is ridiculous.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | January 11, 2018 at 04:33 PM

All Im saying is we will never beat Bama trying to be Bama. Theyve got a ten year head start and several million more dollars. We have to adopt their way of being obsessive about every little detail, while being different on the field, going for a different kind of athlete is some ways. Once we can recruit with those guys, then we can bring in the 6'3" 315 five star DT from TX and the 6'5" 325 five star DT from GA to play in our defense.

Go Canes!!

Also, I know stars matter, but remember RJ McIntosh, our best DT, was a 3 Star player.

So were Garvin and Ford in a bunch of recruiting sites.
