Old Skool

The smiter got smoted. Two weeks to game plan, and this is the result. Pre-season for next year starts now. For the rest of the year, offense and special teams are a try-out for next season. Everyone including Jarren Williams should play.

Liked what I saw on this drive. I remeber thinking Richt had improved for Kaaya's last few games. I hope he doesn't regress like he did after those

BC is showing Richt how bad he sucks at calling plays.

everyone knows they are gonna go to the te

Virginia out coached us last week...they did not give us turnovers...hopefully bc turns the ball over tonight..

VA Cane

I was looking at our roster; 6 place kickers listed!!
2 punters listed....both are bad real bad!
I have never seen us so bad in the kicking game....and the kick coverage game ever!
Thomas is very good and even DJ has done well when he was in there....but our kick and punt coverage, kicking FG XP are ....a mystery....poor and there is no excuse!
Lets hope for better!

VA Cane

CGNC AlPa should pay the fans IE Canespace fans back with the heartaches he gave us.
I think he was worse than Clappy and Onion. Clappy proved he could manage talent as an OC...average as HC. Randy was a good DC, not HC.
AlPa was not really good at coaching period...Temple was a small school....UM is er...was a big time program up until 2003 or so...then we fell off the cliff.
AlPa like CMR in that he is a nice guy....CMR has won at a higher level...more qualified than the others....but we still cannot compete with the elite teams...or great the great players. Sure we have won more; but are we really any better.
Surely LSU made us look bad...UVA did too.
Greatness takes time, but are we ready to line up with Bama, Clemson, OK, Texas, WVU, LSU again, GA The Bucks..even TAMU? Defensively we may be....with Bama exception...but our O is like the bombs sent from S FLA by that nut...just another Dud! no explosion! CMR has no concept of Dynamic O, nor does his son.
Good people horrible Offensive minds...but lets win tonight...cold maybe damp...but they got to play in it too!
No excuses for not winning....got to execute!

Once again that Arseclown Shawn Eischorst is the worst AD in University of Miami History he was the dumbarse to give Golden a 4 year extension after year 1 when we went 6-6 in 2011 in Late November 2011 after we lost to BC at Home 24-17 SMH. I literally have extremely high levels of bad feelings towards that guy.

Is there an over/under on a 40 yard punting average tonight?

TSully, do you know it KY is going the the GT game?

Hi ya VA! Hoping for the best tonight.

Yes, I see that Golden filed a lawsuit. LOL, he should PAY US. We made him a millionaire. Contracts are contracts so it will be what it will be. Maybe he should borrow it from Nevin LOL.

VA Cane

I do like Malik, good kid just a guy in a position that requires more skill. The problem is the OL and QB; and their coaches. Vanilla not dynamic, imaginative, or on the page with new concepts to attack.
The defense is pretty good; coverage could be better as at times it is suspect. The D cannot be on the field forever they get tired after so long. I see the whole problem as the O...and ultimately CMR. He is a nice man; I just do not see him as leading us to where we want to go. He is a good recruiter, but with debacles like UVA and LSU, the great kids choosing to go to the big boys aint coming here.
Hard to say about tonight; I never pick em...I just watch them and hope for the best; all one can do.
CGNCPa like your take on Perry; get your head into film and the playbook you will be better off.
See your good buddy AlPa (LOL) suing the school...what an idiot.
I see the coaching chain has not changed so much as we think...same old approach to the game..Lacking!
Clappy Onion, AlPa, now CMRPa...and the beat goes on!
Hope we will play well tonight we wuill see.
Hope you all are well lets win one tonight!

Here’s to hoping the Defense lets the Awfense swing the Smiting Stick a few times tonight instead of keeping all the smiting to themselves...

Africane App State got drummed last night, so their taste of the light is now gone! So did VT as well.

Such bliss since I stayed away after Virginia defeat. Didn’t even watch any football. Didn’t go to any site. It must have been quiet a blood letting. App state is no. 25! App state? And one mistake the drop us to the bottom of the class. 2 mistakes, we r in the land of the dead. Wow! Offense killed us that game. But I don’t think malik is the answer. Him and kayaa have a thing for over throwing the ball high.

The Canes are a -3.5 point favorite with A.J. Dilon in the lineup. It appears that CMR is suggesting playing Rosier and maybe Perry as well. We will see. I am not a big fan of the way the QB situation has been handled, but I will have to trust CMR on this one - I have no choice.

More importantly, I am a Hurricanes fan, so I will be pulling for Rosier and the Canes tonight to pull out the victory.

It should be an easy win, and I like Soup's prediction, 34-13. That sounds about right.

Every game from here on out is a MUST WIN for the Canes, if they want to get to the ACC Championship Game.

A win will also help curb some of the lost momentum on the recruiting trail. Depending on what happens in Tallahassee and Jacksonville on Saturday, the Canes need to stave off the momentum of the ins-state competition as well.

A lot is riding on this game.

It's definitely a typepad thing as the cloudflare page two days ago probably signified they changed their clients to a secured page, so now your urls are all httpS (for Secure, instead of regular http). Any credentials under the old unsecured page layers probably don't work as they time credentials for authorization out to sign in under the secure page layers that's now displaying typepad's blobs, so you probably want to open a support ticket with them to figure out how to get the logins to register on your pages again.

Regardless of that boring blob master crap, most likely this is a one score game either way but on the road you've got to think BC should be a favorite by the thinnest of one point margins or so regardless of who's the RB of significance for them this game. So special teams will make or break who wins, yeah, I know, Todd Hartley can't wait to give up the third loss on the year either already, he's just that bad as a corch.

It's like coordinators can't remember to play the 5-2 front to stop the high school offense anymore because they just have to die by a thousand rush yards with two safeties on the field just in case they try and throw with a lead which they will never do until the fourth quarter or something . . .

No team has won three straight in blackhole VA since the 1992 Miami Hurricanes until tonight by the way, good for the yellow bees. Almost 30 years later and the chokies are still a third tier trash football program at best just like they always have been since that day, lying about selling every seat out when there were empties in sight everywhere on both upper corners on the hard camera side from kickoff until they left in droves early with plenty of time on the clock in the third quarter. Some things never change!

"With the exception of the two game fiasco at the end of last season, and even those cluster f**** were winnable, there hasn't been a single game since the beginning of last season where we weren't in a game in the fourth quarter. Several of those games we had the ball in our hands with a chance to get within a FG, take the lead or to win the game outright. We failed offensively in all those games.

That's why I think we can absolutely beat Clemson.

If this team can avoid it's three Achilles heels this weekend, poor third down conversion rate, stupid penalties that kill drives or take points off the board and an inability to score late, they can get a win.

Our third down conversion rate has been dramatically better lately, albeit a small sample size. Let's see if that continues and how we do with the other two.

In my opinion what I said against FSU will apply here as well. Play a solid game and If we score late we will win, if we don't we will lose.

If we don't improve in all three areas, there's no way we beat a team with the front seven Clemson has.

Must be a paltry 3 mil

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Former Miami football coach Al Golden has filed a $3 million lawsuit against the university, seeking what he contends is unpaid settlement money.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court Wednesday -- three years to the day after Golden's final game at Miami, a 58-0 loss to Clemson in what is the worst margin of defeat in the school's football history. The Hurricanes fired Golden on Oct. 25, 2015, the day after that game.

"The unpaid portion of Plaintiff's separation pay as of October 2018 is approximately $3 million and continues to grow," read the lawsuit. "Plaintiff seeks judgment for this amount and for any additional sums that accrue and remain unpaid."

Golden made about $2.6 million in his final year at Miami, according to tax records.

"The University of Miami is disappointed to learn that former Coach Golden filed suit," the school said in a statement Wednesday. "The University has fulfilled all of its obligations to Coach Golden in connection with his separation from the University and will defend the claims."

Golden went 32-25 at Miami in parts of five seasons and was 17-18 in Atlantic Coast Conference games. His entire tenure at Miami was overshadowed by an NCAA investigation and subsequent fallout -- a mess caused largely by the actions of a rogue former booster, someone currently in federal prison for leading a $900 million Ponzi scheme.

Golden was not told of the potential for NCAA trouble when he took the job. The investigation started in earnest before his first game with the Hurricanes, and each of his seasons in Coral Gables was affected in some way by the scandal, whether it was bowl games that the school chose to sit out because of the probe, scholarship reductions, NCAA sanctions or simply the unwillingness of recruits to commit to a school in turmoil.

The lawsuit does not say what specific amount, if any, Golden received when he was fired.

"Defendant failed to pay, and refuses to pay, the Plaintiff the full amount of the separation payment required," the lawsuit said.

Golden was back in the Miami area this past weekend, in his role as a position coach with the Detroit Lions. They beat the Miami Dolphins 32-21.

Attempts to reach Golden for comment Wednesday were not successful. TMZ first reported details of the lawsuit.

2016 Miami went 9-4.

2017 10-3 needing comeback win VS. FSU and a fourth down miracle against G-tech.

2018 5-2 so far with three conference road games left on schedule, call it 8-4.

Other than the timing of the losses, almost identical seasons.

This is going to be how it goes until the quarterback position gets fixed.

Posted by: UMike | October 25, 2018 at 10:00 AM

This shows you haven't watched any BC defensive series this year because if you had, you'd realize this question isn't the problem that needs to be answered. It's execution, not design. The Eagles will illustrate that very clearly I'm guessing right now as they're slightly above average as a defense from a yardage surrendered measure but they play better in bigger stakes and closer total possessions on the scoreboard games.

question...Do you think Ed Ogeron will ever cough up the frog in his throat in one of those interviews on ESPN ? lol

mi@mic@ne

football is a violent sport...the U has been a place where guys who come from broken families and physically violent neighborhoods feel at home on the field. They have been forced to become adults at a very young age because they have had to face they have had to fight for their respect. I think every child should be raised with adult supervision and protection but its not part of the culture in some of the areas in the 305. That is why JJ was such a positive influence with guys like Irvin..ie the Perrys of the world. JJ not only became a father figure but he got the team together and talked about life and gave those kinds of players positive enforcement so they felt good about themselves and being on a team that rewarded their success. Those teams under JJ got better as the game progressed and in some of the fourth qs overwhelmed their opponents on both sides of the ball. I could see the other team quit in the fourth quarter....we also got better as the season progressed and even if we put the freshman in the fourth quarter the young players always rose to the occasion....jj was able to get the players focused in a special way. I guess us old Canes where really spoiled....

TonyCane

Unfortunate prediction, hope that I am wrong:

BC 34. UM 17

8-4 regular season finish

mi@mic@ne

The division 11 schools have more dynamic offenses and produce more points than we do...are the able to get 5 star players? They just know who to spread the field and use their speed

mi@mic@ne

I just want to get back to being relevant...Richt has yet to prove that he can get us there and it looks like we have taken a step back...if you have a weak oline and you recruited a qb who is more of an up tempo rpo qb then why are you trying to make him a pocket passer? So if he does not fit your mold then you go with a guy who cannot hit the broad side of a barn door...in college football you need to win in reloading the team...your never gonna have all seniors ...you got to win with playing freshman....

Posted by: UMike | October 25, 2018 at 10:00 AM


I don’t think the problem is aggression if you define aggression as down field passing.

It seems to me to be the offense is too “ aggressive “, relying on low percentage passes for any hope of yardage.

The problem is we are predictable and not creative.

Our best work is created by a commitment to the short passing game. After that it is creative running, and tempo.

We look like a COMPLETELY different offense when we stick with these tactics.

Problem is, we won’t stick with what works for our offense because it is NOT the PHILOSOPHY of the man running the show.

Because we occasionally break a run or luck into a deep completion with Richt’s philosophy, it allows him to delude himself into thinking his philosophy is what’s best for THIS TEAM. He can keep telling himself it will work if we just “execute”, no matter how many terrible series as evidence to the contrary.

I don’t know what to expect week to week. I just hope and have those hopes dashed by silly decisions. He may come out like 2016 pitt or 2017 Syracuse and Notre Dame. He may call the whole game the way he called our only touchdown against uva.

Who knows.

What I do know is if he doesn’t get it together and build on what has actually worked for us, he will make the remainder of his career in Miami VERY MISERABLE for himself, the team, and the fans.

DTX,
I always thought one of JJ's biggest accomplishments was protecting Michael Irvin from Michael Irvin.

Irvin was just as immature Perry or any other Cane. Johnson was such a positive influence on Irvin. Irvin worked harded than anyone else, gave everything every play.

He loved Johnson so much he would do anything to please him, and nothing to
disapoint him.

The farther away JJ was to Irvins life, the more Irvin let his guard down and made one bad decision after another.

JJ was always one of the best coaches at handling every player as an individual, not a cog in a machine

DallasTX Cane

mi@mic@ne - U are the one comparing Richt & JJ. And wanting Butch back wasnt exactly a lonely position to take at any time since Coker massively failed. Maybe if he builds a winner at FIU and CMR flames out, we’ll get him back...

DallasTX Cane

I don’t disagree with any of that. Jimmy’s hardest working players were also the most talented. No doubt he was a major reason why. But if you think he let guys who hadn’t accomplished jack & had questionable work ethics do whatever they wanted because of their “talent”, I’ll say BS. Didn’t happen that way.

jj kept Testaverde in the PSU game even tho he has like 4 interceptions because he had a lot of talent..and we would have won if Testaverde had not thrown the pick in the red zone

jj was merciless if you were an average player and you slacked

mi@mic@ne

jj was a psych major ...your only telling part of the story..he was a master at organization and motivating the players...the pressure on his teams is much different from Richt laid back disposition...jj worked well with the players who were like Perry...and also Jj gave the talented players a lot more slack than the average players...

DallasTX Cane

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | October 24, 2018 at 04:53 PM

IMHO U misunderstand or misremember how JJ dealt with his players & teams. I got to follow JJ up close during his time in Dallas also. JJ would let the players do what they wanted, IF and only IF they were putting in the work and having success on the field. The antics... the Swag.. follows the hard work & success, it doesn’t precede. JJ once cut the Cowboys backup running back the Monday after he fumbled while filling in for Emmit Smith at the end of a blowout win. Meaningless game, championship team winning in a blowout, meaningless fumble. JJ cuts the guy. Doesn’t bench him or fine him. Drops his ass from the team. JJ was merciless if you didn’t do your job. U think he’d be cool with Perry’s performance or tell the kid to get his ass out to the practice field & 86 the photo ops??

Herbieibis

The Herb sees 2 passes and a run the first series, then it's back to the typical 2 runs off tackle and then a go route. That's the most I can see him change.
With the play calling and QB ineptitude this game will be won by a FG. The only way we don't struggle is if the Dee is passing the T.O.Chain like a joint!
