Horsemen 4 LIFE

That said, the content of the blog is spot on.

86Cane

People say that "Richt needs his own players."

What did Frost do?

People saying that we don't have enough talent.

What did Frost do?

People saying that we have no OL.

What did Frost do?

People saying that we have no QB.

What did Frost do?

Losers make excuses.

Winners find solutions.

SinisterCane

Will CMR recruit Nosier back or tell him to listen to his gut lol

SinisterCane

QB coach - no prior experience as coach

OC that don't even call plays

WR coach coaching has been solid

OL coach - should be fired

ST coach - should be demoted from this group and only coach TE's

RB coach - average at best

Thats a lot of inexperience just n the offensive side of the ball

VA Cane

At times we looked good, at times we looked like pre Richt teams...weak unsure.

3 things... 1....I was glad to see CMR get real and blow some steam...Jesus Is just Alright With Me (Doobie Brothers), but damn time you showed some emotion.

2 Watch OU and GA play we had a good year, but we are nowhere near either one of those teams....thats big time football!

3 Sony Michel must be 30!

VA Cane

Good point 86....
"Winners find ways to win, losers learn to quit and quitters learn to fail"!

We could have won...how bad did we want to win....there were some bad calls....but you have to compete and want to win!

Such a ridiculous, but typical, statement from you.

^^^ It’s a fair point.

BEERicane

Not GCs point, but 86’s point it totally fair.

roachcane77

Biggest difference between us and them is:

OC
QB
RB
OL
DB

Other than that... we could be competing for a 6th, (I mean 7th), NC.

SinisterCane

GA AD made the right move

BigWindyCane1

Looks like this UGA v OKLA game is shaping up to be a good one.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | January 01, 2018 at 08:15 PM

Looks like this CFB semi-final game proved to be one for the ages.

VA Cane

Sad to say but GA plays for title with CMRs players....interesting situation

BEERicane

Co, I didn’t watch the game. Did OU win like you said?

SoFL dominated that shit. Get those guys, we back.

SinisterCane

Watching all the bowls game today we have the worst staff in the top 15

BigWindyCane1

South Florida all over the field. Sony Michel was 11 rushes for 181 yards. Aside from That fumble, he was unbelievable

Terrance Sullivan

U are right can't argue this blog article. Time will tell.

BigWindyCane1

If Clemson doesn't wake up soon, this will be an old fashioned woodshed game. Clemson needs to play with more urgency

VA Cane

We had a good year....little rough at the end...but better than many years.
We know we were not real contenders for the NC...but we did win our division and got to title game....we have a lot of work to do.
We will have a different QB....and different people I think we need a real dynamic OC....CMR is not one. We got a foothold on climbing higher and we will need to work hard.
Good year!

86Cane

Go Canes...any comment you make will be deleted ASAP. So be a man, just stop posting and please find another blog.

Thank U.

To be realistic - put UCF into the SEC or ACC and there is no way that they run the table.

Scott Frost is evidently a great coach that found a way to elevate his talent above the relative mediocrity of the All American Conference. Put a great coach in a weak conference and you get seasons like UCF this year and Boise State in the past. And like Boise, UCF got up for this game, was probably taken lightly by Auburn, and won.

Chris Peterson is the same. He had outstanding success with Boise State. Yet now finishing his fourth year at Washington, how many undefeated seasons has he had with the Huskies? Yes, he's elevated them significantly, but there is a bigger hurdle to going undefeated in a Power 5 school than in the All American or the Western Athletic conferences.

orange 'n green in the vein

2018 is the year the Smarks take over, aka the year I've been waiting for since about 2011.

It better be good.

VA Cane

Well put TC....Power 5 undefeated is tough...a rare bird!!!
We will get better...I dont compare us to others really...we just need to keep working hard and getting better in all areas.
There is a lot of room to improve...but we did a lot better than in past years!

BigWindyCane1

As per Ariz: Miami LB Darrion Owens will be transferring, sources say. He is eligible to play elsewhere immediately since he graduated in December. Houston is a possible landing spot.

1. Scott Frost is evidently a great coach that found a way to elevate his talent above the relative mediocrity of the All American Conference. Put a great coach in a weak conference and you get seasons like UCF this year and Boise State in the past.

2. Chris Peterson is the same. He had outstanding success with Boise State. Yet now finishing his fourth year at Washington, how many undefeated seasons has he had with the Huskies?

Posted by: TonyCane | January 01, 2018 at 10:06 PM

1. The ACC Coastal is about the same as the weak ass AAC. Everybody knows that. Just like every sane person knows that losing to Pitt was a tragedy not a mistake.

2. Mark Richt did not come from a "Boise State" like Peterson did. he came from SEC powerhouse Georgia. He knew college football at the highest levels and failed to take Miami to that level.

Keep making excuses, they are for losers.

Richt did not do what Frost did in two years.

Richt did not have an aggressive offensive scheme, creative play calling or attack attitude like Frost did.

Just watch a replay of the two teams play in their bowl games. Richt with MORE time to prepare and twice the talent than Frost had doing DOUBLE duty, and it is obvious.

86Cane

Now don't get it twisted, I still give Mark y Mark another two years to load up on talent prove me wrong. I hope he will but I doubt it.

BigWindyCane1

The University of Miami announced Monday that redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Ryan Fines has decided to leave the football program.

More attrition and more schollies freed up

SinisterCane

If I didn't know any better 86 might be the new 4th Horseman

WWIN SIN CaneRock and now.....................................86 the dark side of the force is strong with this one

raizecane

How about them UCF nights...... Charge ON!!!!!

BigWindyCane1

Alabama is what a good defense looks like

BigWindyCane1

Jalen Hurts isn't as bad as Rosier, but he isn't as good as the other QBs in the CFB playoffs

BigWindyCane1

By the way, Canes men basketball at #15 in the latest AP poll

TonyCane

Let's look at how much of an anomaly Scott Frost actually was.

Each of the following winless seasons led to a new head coach taking over, and here is how the coach did in Year 1 and 2 of the new regime:

1988 Kansas State (0-11)
Bill Snyder becomes new head coach
Year 1: 1-10
Year 2: 5-6

2001 Navy Midshipman (0-11)
Paul Johnson becomes new head coach
Year 1: 2-10
Year 2: 8-5

2003 Army Black Knights (0-13)
Bobby Ross becomes new head coach
Year 1: 2-9
Year 2: 4-7

2005 Temple Owls (0-11)
Al Golden becomes new head coach
Year 1: 1-11
Year 2: 4-8

2008 Washington Huskies (0-12)
Steve Sarkasian becomes new head coach
Year 1: 5-7
Year 2: 7-6

2015 UCF Knights (0-13)
Scott Frost becomes new head coach
Year 1: 6-7
Year 2: 13-0

Based on the results, Scott Frost may in fact be better - maybe far better a coach - than CM Richt. But if that's the case, let's be clear about one thing. No one here or elsewhere was clamoring for Scott Frost to be hired at the end of the 2015 season. People wanted Butch or Richt. Frost was like Major Applewhite - an unproven commodity. An someone with the apparent upwards trajectory of Frost is not a plentiful commodity. It's not as if the AD saw Frost's excellence and passed on it for mediocrity.

If Frost is who he appears to be - then UCF was incredibly fortitous in their hire. And Nebraska will defeat Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan and be on their way to a national championship in the 2019 season. Maybe.

86Cane

Tony...OK, I get it, that probably is a good and fair analysis. The ONLY point I am trying to make is that IT CAN BE DONE anywhere at anytime by any coach if he is good enough and wants it bad enough.

Frost did it at UCF of all places and if you are watching closely then you might now that coach at FAU may be the next one to do it. Please post their records over the last 5 years?

MLAlumni1970

Canes BB is a hell of a lot better than #15.
My boyfriend, now says completely,that Miami Hurricanes are so wrongly penalized. He cannot believe it after watching their football game. BIAS AGAINST THE U

BigWindyCane1

Hopefully, our Canes defense (especially the juniors considering going early to the NFL) are watching this Clemson game, and see how far they really need to go before they are considered a great defensive team.

This might be a woodshed beat down

MLAlumni1970

BIAS AGAINST THE U.
BAMA 24 CLEMSON 6
HOPE YOU ALL HAD A SAFE NEW YEAR.

VA Cane

Clemson D looks good.....TD by Bama OL was way Offensive PA...but thats tough luck. Their offense without the people they had last year is no match for Bama....they drilled our AZZ!!
We are not ready to play the big boys yet....we need to be dynamic but also be able to get in a heavyweight fight....not yet not with them.
But On We Jam....we were so far behind from the last 3 coaches that we are not gonna get there overnight.

86Cane

Never mind I will do it for you:

The last two seasons the FAU Owls went 3-9.

In his first year as head coach Lane Kiffin went 11-3 and a won a conference championship and a bowl game victory.

But he didn't have his "own recruits" so it must have been impossible for him to do so? The stuff is thick!

TonyCane

That Alabama defense looks incredible against Clemson.

Honestly, this is the way that Alabama should always play. They have such a talent disparity versus almost all of college fooball that Saban should have had multiple undefeated seasons and six national titles this decade. When you have over 20’five star players and 40 four star players, the talent gap is ridiculous.

86Cane

Now Richt could prove me wrong and start Perry next year with more talent around him and go 12-0 and be in the playoff picture.

But if I were a betting man I would say there is about a 70% chance of that. Which is pretty high but nothing near a guarantee.

I do not believe in his offense at all.

I do not believe in the special teams coach.

That is 2/3 of the team that is shaky at BEST.

BigWindyCane1

McIntosh, Norton and Jackson can return and help the Canes get their defense to a true elite level. They can't feel good about how they played against Wisconsin. They can work over the summer, improve, and return next season and dominate. Impose their will on other teams. Then, they will improve their draft stock

VA Cane

And they can win with a very average...but tough non passing QB...he looks good sometimes...and bad others...but they are so tough up front and keep running at you...and their D is relentless....we are fast on D....but we do not hit quite like that they have that hate....BUT we can get there.....CMR has to want to play low hard clean fast....man you got to HATE people...Saban hates his opponents....not for people but as opponents who stand in the way of...not division not conference....NC!

CMR needs to get angry.....that was good to see....i wish he would do it more....Hongry to Hit Hate Hurt!!!!

VA Cane

Good point 86....I do not like the Offensive philosophy...yet look at GA Michel Chubb...run hard.....but under KS they seemed so much more north south aggressive nasty ....and hiting and hurting....we seemed so soft and happy to be soft.....I have never coached that way.....my guys this year were so aggressive...we dominated every game at the line....
ST are so critical....we looked.... weak.....like you said 2 out of 3 aint bad....if you're Meatloaf!!!!
We got to tighten up toughen up....get some direction!!!!

MLAlumni1970

In 2015, I didn't know who this Scott Frost was and felt very comfortable with Butch Davis.
What does that have to do with anything?
Happy New Year CANESPACERS
