orange n' green in the vein

The Pimp can't even save this horrible football season.

Well, it's November. Has UM's offensive line in 2018:

A) Fully gelled as a five man front;

B) 3/4ths gelled as a five man front;

C) 1/2 gelled as a five man front;

or D) not gelled at all as a five man front;

at this point?

Feel free to round up if you're feeling generous or are a sid-tard working a Fake Lames' talking point. If you're the latter, round up and then choke on a bag of dicks until you stop breathing like every other day you shat up the blob with your garbage.

I see your point but you missed mine. Aggressive to me is: starting off with the intent to score and embarrass the opponent; aggressive is when your leading by 3 you keep the petal to the metal - NOT hoping we hang on for the V! Aggressive to me is up by 35, and having subs in with the petal to the metal - if not they aren’t getting the true experience they need and WANT;
It’s actually wanting explosive plays - NOT, at halftime down by 3 telling the person ‘we are only down by 3, we don’t need explosive plays!’
I said it before, this is college and needs to be fun, exciting and explosive! It’s all about winning and recruiting! Right now, we are doing little of either!

I understand where you’re coming from Aero.

I was at the Citrus Bowl year before last (as I’m sure a bunch of U were). Our O in the first 1/2 was every bit as bad as it is now. But played like a totally different team in the 2nd 1/2. That game ended up being a blowout when we came in as underdogs.

It’s driving me as crazy as all of U but I also can’t help but think the OC/HC of that 2nd 1/2 was as aggressive and pedal to the metal as I’ve seen. How is that the same guy we’ve seen the last year?

Is it wrong for me to go for Duke this Saturday? Maybe if we lose the remaining 4 games Richt will get fired??? Thoughts....

AeroCane

Elliott
I won’t say right or wrong cause that is up to each fan; but with the 40 or so business clients I consult for, I have a saying: sometimes we need to take a step or 2 back to really leap forward!
So I suggest this: we win all remaining games, and richt decides he doesn’t want to coach anymore cause it’s no fun, and retires!

I just don't get it.


VA Cane

What is worse than being a Canes fan?
Being a Canes and Raiders fan....Raiders are horrible.
What is a worse hire than CMR? John Gruden.
Gruden is not a good coach barely .500...he won at TB with a team built by T Dungy....after that blip, he was not real good.
The Raiders are very bad ...bad football.
UM bad football.....hard being a fan of both...at least we have won 5...Oakland is so bad!!!!

On other notes, at least my guys are 7-0...really really good.
Good to see some good football on Saturdays!!!!
Richt needs to focus totally on recruiting...only!
We need a really dynamic OC and OL coach....CMR should let others handle on field issues...he just cannot see the big picture.

VA Cane

I do like him, but he just seems oblivious to the lack of commitment, the apathy around him. son is probably a nice guy too...just not a very good OC...our plays look pretty bad....nothing fluid or imaginative very easy to read and defend.

86Cane

Go Canes...what you don't get is that people live really HARD lives every day. We do not get paid millions of dollars to coach or play a game. We all struggle to survive, feed our families, make our way.

We expect "Our Team" to do the same.

If we went to work at Ford, and we lost market share and sales daily to Chevy (Alabama) and Kia (Clemson), we would try to do something to fix it. We would develop sales strategies, favorable market comparisons or pricing to succeed.

The Canes can't keep losing and do NOTHING to fix it because then there is nothing to keep them "competitive" in the market. They will lose games, lose market share (recruiting) and eventually have to hire new management (coaches/AD) to become competitive.

It is a simple business equation, no emotion needed. As fans we feel so attached to the "business" of college sports. As administrators and coaches they know the deal. It is wins and losses and forward momentum that drives the train of success.

Our train at UM has run OFF the tracks for 14 years and four coaches. Eventually the business needs a recovery plan or we will go into (financial, coaching and talent) bankruptcy.

That is a bad place to be.

My perspective is I cant' for the life of me understand anyone coming on here and say they are rooting for us to lose our final four games, finish under .500, miss out on a bowl, destroy recruiting and completely demorailze our base so we can fire the head coach.

If you think that way, sorry you're a fool and your perspective is so warped you need to start rooting for another team.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 86Cane | November 01, 2018 at 10:45 PM

How do I not get that? Because I think it's insane to want to lose our last four games? Talk about a warped perspective

We need to make changes to our offensive play calling and design. Everyone knows that. But any OC in the country would struggle making the glaring lack of talent under center excel when we literally have no idea whee the ball will go every time it leaves his hands.

Anyone rooting for 0-4 should be ashamed and embarrassed, not making it seem like they're so smart they know this is the best thing in some long term master plan.

AeroCane

Per GO:

Ok - who’s effing job is it to recruit and coach up - it’s mark richt
Ok - who’s job is it to choose the right guy to play - it’s mark richt
There are teams playing freshman qbs - why isn’t he playing Williams
- we all know rosier sucks and obviously richt does not think Perry is the guy; it’s up to richt to play the right guy and coach him up and put in the plays to make him and the team successful. A good OC would not have rosier playing, and would have a young more talented guy starting with a scheme to effing score points and win. No more effing excuses for our terrible OC and terrible qb coach!

HillviewCane

What happens if we lose 3 of the last 4 games? What if we lose 4 of the last 4?

Tailgating in the usual area (once KYCANE and TSully decide to show up). During the game I may have to take the 86 approach and move around until i find a good luck seat, lol

HillviewCane

I think Notre Dame's situation in 2016 when they went 4 and 8 is giving me some optimism. If Richt can reflect and be willing to change things and get coordinator help like Brian Kelly did we can turn things around. We have enough talent to be a good/very good football team.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | November 02, 2018 at 05:19 AM

I never said that, AeroCane did, and I don't agree. I predicted a victory already over Duke 34-13 and want the Canes to win the rest of their games. That's where I stand.

But I do understand the other way of thinking. Here is what I think he (and others) is really trying to say: If we win our remaining four games, go to a bowl and win, then everything will seem "fine" and no changes would be needed, or occur or be demanded.

No changes means three more years of not good enough 3-4 loss seasons, poor offense game planning, horrid play calling and awful execution and simply put, more misery. So to prevent that he wants more change sooner and only happens with a end of season collapse where change HAS to happen.

AeroCane and others who think this way really don't want the Canes to lose the last four games but what they really want is to be assured of change and improvement this off-season.

They can correct me if I am wrong?

Herbieibis

Let's see, we lost 4 in a row in 2016. We lost another 4 in a row, 3 at the end of 2017 and the first game in 2018. Now we are on a 2 game losing streak. What does it say about Richt, he is lousy making adjustments and to slow at stopping the leaks.
The Herb sees this game as a toss up. Oh they will be fired up to play at home and thank God for that because we suck on the road, however with the m
Keep things close to the vest and let the defense win the game for us, I see a squeaka.
Question, When's the last time we took our first possession down the field and s scored? Uh me either. When's the last time we led by more than 7 pts. Uh, a minute or two. U dam well better believe he is going to g to try and run it down the cookies throat first. When that doesn't work, then it's time for his new found love for the slant. Anyone u get the idea.
Cane's, in overtime 27-24.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: AeroCane | November 02, 2018 at 08:53 AM

This is such an easy position to take. Can't have a conversation about all that ails us offensively if the fall back is why can't he get the true freshman ready.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Herbieibis | November 02, 2018 at 10:06 AM

All very fair points.

Don't see the toss up part though.

They haven't been able to do anything against us offensively since Manny got here and this is his best defense he's had. That spells a long night for Jones and company imo.

Agree with Soup, Canes mucho-Duke poco.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: AeroCane | November 02, 2018 at 08:53 AM

Remember during much of Brad's junior year, several freshmen were playing much better than him?

AeroCane

Soup
I didn’t say that
Elliott did - my response was ‘let’s win the rest and have richt retire’
My position is: play the young guys, be aggressive, have fun, and with our talent we will win more than not

solarcane

Didn't it take Dabo a good while to get Clemson rolling?
We, and I include myself are desperate to see some light in the tunnel.

When my rational brain is working, I understand there are a lot of people in the program that know more than you or I know.

When my emotions boil over, and that is rare, I want to blame Richt for everything.
I am with DTX in thinking another HC is another 3 or 4 year building process

There are programs out there that don't have top 5 recruiting classes year in and year out, they function.

We need to start the season a realistic 20 to 25, play with no pressure to slip out of the top ten three weeks into a season.

Lets see if a new OC and some coaching changes happen...we aren't FSU yet

86Cane

Sorry AeroCane for the mistake.

AeroCane

Ok
So it’s unanimous- richt ain’t going nowhere
• questions:
• will he bring in a ‘real’ OC?
• If yes, who?
• will he fire seales and bring in a real OL coach?
• what will he do about special teams?
• what will he do in regards to his son?

These appear to be most of our key questions!
Soup, can you please forward to the BOT for us?

CGNC

Preach 86! Both posts are fantastic.

CGNC

Raize - will try and catch up with you I E2 where Kenny hangs out. Our seats are in 347, Row 12

TonyCane

Solar....I want FSU to remain exactly the way that they are for a long, long time. At least a decade.

One thing that becomes clear is that once you slip from the top, it can be VERY, very hard to get back. Let’s look at Texas and Florida. Both ceased to be national title contenders about 9 seasons ago. Both have gone through multiple coaching changes to try and get back to where they were. And neither are yet back.

Rationally, I think that Richt is not a quick fix. Sure, he’s improved the recruiting process immediately and has more funding, but rebuilding the roster takes time. And hitting in and then retaining the right assistants. My guess...my hope is that Richt’s path is like Dabo’s. Years of struggle and incremental building, followed by a sudden breakthrough. As I said yesterday, I suspect that in a short period we will get to see Jarren play, and maybe our offense begins to take a different path. Maybe.

A question for all of you...why isn’t DJ our primary back? It seems to me he’s generally been more productive than Travis.

AeroCane

I’m with you regarding DJ
More energetic as well! I actually thought we made a huge mistake not using lingard- guy is super dynamic and can truly takebit to the house at any time - that alone is huge!

UMike

I just can't understand the decision to start Rosier over Perry, at least based on his performance on field. I know he threw a couple INTs but he is still light years better then Rosier.

TonyCane

This is my impression:

1) Until the end of the VA game, a playoff spot was possible
2) Until the end of the BC game, a Coastal title was possible

Weighing against that, we have two quarterbacks:

Rozier: Knows the offense. Is a team leader. Probably maxed out upside and cannot make all the throws necessary to run the offense

Perry: May still not know the offense. Immaturity concerns. High upside and much more athletic than Rozier. Has a tendency to force passes and has yielded bad interceptions.

Perry’s downside emerged in force at Virginia. Rozier was inserted because - after all - he did lead Miami to 10 wins last year. Richt thought that the risk outweighed the reward at BC and again went with Rozier.

An additizonal thought - perhaps the offense is so limited because Rozier simply cannot physically execute it and Perry just has not mastered it. Perhaps we are just simply seeing a drastically scaled back version because of this.

UMike

Tony all good points... but shyt at least Perry can hit Thomas for a wide open TD lol...even Rosiers completions are bad passes and there is no yards after the catch.

Terrance Sullivan

I am not impressed with Rosier or Perry. That is All. Less impressed with our Offensive Line and Special Teams. That is All. Just win the damn Game. And hopefully the last couple games of the Year let's see what Jarren Williams have. And go out and sign a Grad Transfer and Sign a High School Grad QB in this class. Honestly It would not bother me after this season that with Rosier Graduating both Perry and Weldon go both seem like knuckleheads and ain't good enough to pull that crap off. Coach Richt and Offensive Staff is on the damn clock. Barbeque or Mildew. Go Canes Beat Duke!
