This is 100% true.

Except for the 13 times in 17 as a head coach he finished 1st or 2nd in his division.

So I your guess happy with just winning the coastal

For right now, yeah, I couldnt be happier "just winning the Coastal." After a decade of not doing it, not only have we done it, but we are consolidating our power at the top of it. Get some perspective man. Things I'm also just happy with are 1st bowl win in a decade, and 1st time winning 10 games in a decade, 1st time being ranked top 5 in a decade, regular top recruiting classes, buzz around the program again, winning with below average QBs, a Miami style defense, Hard Rock Stadium, embarrassing the Irish, 1st win over FSU in 7 years... I can go on, but something tells me you still wont see how far weve come and be proud/happy about it. Titles take time to build. It took Jimmy time, it took Howard time, it took Butch time, it took Dabo time, it took Carroll time, it took Saban time, again, I could go on but something tells me those examples will some how not matter also.

His Royal Dudeness

If the question is, "is Mark Richt a better HC than Meyer or Saban?", then I can assure you Sinister, no one here can say that. Thats not the question though. The question is, "can Mark Richt with a little breathing room at Miami, in the ACC Coastal, build a team strong enough to win a title?" Here's the answer to that question... no one knows. Im looking at certain things that make me think he can and also other things that give me doubts. All we can ask him in the meantime is what have you done for me so far, and so far, the results have been perfectly fine.

Go Canes!!

Of course.

Some people forget “Just winning the coastal” this year put us in a win and we’re in situation to the final four. That’s something even schools like Ohio State and Alabama couldn’t say.

So yeah I’m happy winning the Coastal every year and being in a position to play for the NC or a big New Year’s Day bowl.

If you’re not, there’s something seriously wrong with you.

Terrance Sullivan

I agreed with pretty much all HRE said except below average QB'S and dominating VT to clinch the ACC Coastal. Everything else total agreement.

Sinistercane1

I see the excuse train is running at full speed.

So should we the get mission accomplished banner for winning the coastal?

The fact that nobody knows what we have in NoO entering his 3rd yr as the HC is saddening at the hightest level. When you have the exact “more questions than answers” heading into your 3rd year you have failed as coach. CMR aka just another pretender in a long line of pretenders posing as a HC

Terrance Sullivan

Adding Sinister to the Ignore list like WWIN.

My point was not that I like winning with a bad QB, but that we are good enough to do it again.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Sinistercane1 | May 19, 2018 at 02:07 PM

We do not have more questions than answers, thats a complete load of BS.

Go Canes!!


Posted by: Sinistercane1 | May 19, 2018 at 02:07 PM

This is complete and utter bullshit.

You’re the only one who doesn’t know what we have.

Go Canes!!

Guy has won a bowl game, beaten FSU, won the 10 games, the Coastal, taken us to the ACCCG, brought in a Top 5-10 recruiting class and has us preseason Top 10 for next season.

All while operating up to 10 players below the scholarship limit.

Wtf more do you want going into year three.

Ignore list lol I don’t speak to you anyway

Tha U is Paying CMR to win championships not some petty coastal title and by his own admission and I quote “I came here to win championships”.
So I’m going to hold him to that standard.

HRD

The Offense is riddled with questions marks QB Oline play calling and offensive philosophy and that’s just the offense

GC

Keep lowering that bar for NoO

Go Canes!!

How do you lower the bar to someplace we’ve never been?

Last time I checked the trip to Charlotte for the ACC Championship hadn’t occurred since...ever.


JCane

4-3, BC, bottom 3rd, with U scoring 3 in the 3rd and in a weather delay.

My expectations is to win ACC, what’s yours?

Luke Skywalker

,

No one is slighting Rosier. He gets credit for what he did. A few nice throws a game and few timely throws a game. He also gets credit for several throws into the dirt a game. Too often throwing bad balls that if thrown in stride would have been TD's or big yardage. Instead, the WR has to dive, jump or slow down to make the catch and was wide open.

Most of the game changing and winning plays were made inspite of him, not because of him. So, when you say he (Rosier) won games it sounds ridiculous. You're giving him the credit for those wins. The credit should be going to Richards, Herndon, Walton, Homer, Berrios and Thomas. The NFL caliber guys, that made NFL caliber plays, that TRULY won the game. The reason they are in the NFL or on the NFL's radar. Not him.

Nosier doesn't deserve their credit. It's blasphemy.

Every word you just said was wrong. Evan Sheriffs at QB last season equal 8 wins or less.

Your expectations do not jibe with reality.

How does the season turn out with a healthy Walton?

Go Canes

Reality is you’ve already conceded the 2018 season

Sinistercane1

Don’t worry CaneSpace 2019 is when CANEZ football starts

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Sinistercane1 | May 19, 2018 at 07:21 PM

You must have me confused with someone else. I expect us back in the ACC Championship game this year.

Difference is if we don’t make it for whatever reason, I don’t feel the need to burn redshirts, fire coaches or burn the program to the ground.

Sinistercane1

I expect CMR to WIN the ACC and you happy just to be there f@ckin wow

Sinistercane1

Go Canes if the online does not improve in year 3 should CMR keep stacy for a 4th?

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Sinistercane1 | May 19, 2018 at 09:09 PM

Clemson will have four defensive linemen taken in the first round this year.

We’re starting a QB that wouldn’t dress for them if there was a game this Saturday.

You expecting us to beat them is fine, but again your expectations do not in any way match reality.

Go Canes!!

Can we win against Clemson? Yes.

Should we? No.

But they have a vastly superior roster from a talent, depth and experience standpoint.

Sinistercane1

Nosier gonna lose us games

BigWindyCane1

Athalon Sports ranked the Canes #6 in the preseason poll. I know many on the blog disagree with this ranking, but I think it’s about right. Barring major injuries, IMO the Canes should be a top 5-10 team. The Canes have more experience, quality depth and talent across the board. The Canes should take another step forward this season.

Athalon also has a preseason All ACC team full of Canes for the first time in a while:

First team:
Ahmmon Richards WR
Shaquille Quarterman LB
Jaquan Johnson DB

Second team:
Navaughn Donaldson OL
MIchael Pinkney LB
MIchael Jackson DB
Joe Jackson DE

Third team:
Travis Homer RB

How does the season turn out with a healthy Walton?
Posted by: BEERicane | May 19, 2018 at 06:43 PM

Excellent question BEERicane...
I saw Walton's loss as one of, if not THE biggest, factors leading to our late season fade.
A healthy Walton at THAT point would have taken SO much pressure off of 1) CMR's playcalling, 2) MR's decision making and inaccurate throwing, and 3) an average, tiring, sluggish OL.

I guess we'll never know.

I wish him all the best in Cincinnati!

Go Canes!!

On the surface it is somewhat surprising to see Miami that low (we're still not at 85 - I have us at 83 going into the summer), but it shows the twin effects of roster turnover under Golden, and the normal turnover that takes place when a new coach arrives.

Roster Size:
2017: 76
2016: 74
2015: 81
2014: 71
2013: 69
2012: 78
2011: 61
2010: 83

Walton has the type of vision and lateral quickness that may have been able to get us more yards when the line was struggling. It will would have also kept Homer fresher. The whole team wore down a bit as the season went on.

The effect of the Irma delay can’t be understated. Most teams would have folded under that. Instead, we have our best year in 15 years. That type of thing exhausts you emotionally and throws off the teams rhythm.

Richt showed he is a great head coach in his handling of that and many other situations on the team. Just hire a oc Mark, lol.

Remember all those dimes Malik threw early in the year that got dropped? If he was throwing like that late in the year, we would be 12-1 and Orange Bowl champs. There were many rhythm problems with our offense, in both 16 and 17. I think Richt is smart enough to fix it, but I think having a former player as oc is creating too much yes man culture.

Even if Brown has the balls and knowledge to speak up, does he REALLY have Richt’s ear? An oc with a little more salary and clout might be what the doctor ordered.

Excellent post for those who someone have deluted themselves into believing that three year fiasco with the NCAA was no big deal.

We never hear about roster # until we start losing

His Royal Dudeness

Aaaaahhhhh....

West Yellowstone for next 3 days.

TonyCane

It makes sense though Sinister. When you are underwater in roster strength it’s automatic that one or more positions have poor depth. A few key injuries and if depth is lacking, you will likely have dropped a game.

Herbieibis

Let The Herb give u a little insight: stop the we lost our 3 best players scenario last year, everyone loses players. We have talent and after 2 full recruiting bridge classes we shouldn't still be down under the 85 player limit and we still shouldn't be still losing the area big time players but we still are. We have a very average throwing qb who has been here for 4 effing years. Granted the u has a hard time getting tackled, whether they be offensive or defensive. It's d like a dam albatros hanging over our heads. As I have stated here many times winning will take care of some of these headaches.
We are still losing games to teams, that shouldn't be on the field with us, another problem we need to remedy. Rich's play calling has to get better and our line play has got to be way better.
We now have 5 thousand WR'S, so that position should not be s problem. We have depth and talent at RB,so that shouldn't be a problem, so either our offensive line recruiting needs to get better, Rich's play calling has to get better or Searles had to get better.
We ain't beating Clemson, YET! They still have more talent than us across both lines. We are not far off but we have to win a few big time games, when it really matters. Hell Va. Tech would finish 4th in the SEC West and we struggle to beat them most years and that's our biggest game in the Coastal. Once every 5 years we might struggle in that division.
Last thing we can't keep whiffing in recruiting on certain positions. With 25 ships this should never happen.

Go Canes!!

And not sarcastically, curious what positions you think we've whiffed on.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Go Canes!! | May 20, 2018 at 09:09 PM

We whiffed hard on defesive backs 1st 2 cycles, OT every year, playable DTs for 2 cycles.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: His Royal Dudeness | May 20, 2018 at 09:18 PM

We may have missed the two AH kids but we signed three Top 250 players at that position this year. I'll be very interested those two guys end up being better than Blades and Frierson.

Will be cool to watch it play out.

And, honestly how do we know we whiffed at OT?

Anyone Richt has had an entire recruiting cycle to go after was either a true freshman or a senior in high school this year.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: Go Canes!! | May 20, 2018 at 10:17 PM

Im not worried about those AH kids. Frierson and Ivey are Miami caliber players. My beef is year 1, only signed Young, then the next year we only signed Bandy. We were left very thin while Rumph figured it out. If he keeps signing 6'0"+ fast CBs, then hexll build a monster because hes a good teacher, but CB needs 2 playable freshmen every year, and maybe one to redshirt. Because we took Bethel and he will redshirt, that gives us 1 playable freshman next year, meaning we need a minimum of 1 next year, and maybe one to redshirt, assuming his redshirt year turns him into a Miami caliber freshman. Thats how depth is built.
