Harry Miller

About time

roachcane77

Well.. SOMEWHERE on campus there is an offense!

86Cane

Way to go Harry Miller!

Dude on a Pale Horse

DTX,

its not that there arent smart football people on the BoT, its that theres some that are and some that arent and when trouble comes, they take too long to take action while they squabble over details, see Al Golden. We need a Football AD that hires/fires coordinators when the HC refuses to, and doesnt let the HC take the program down with him.

Go Canes!!

TD it’s been 2 1/2 seasons and two real recruiting classes.

We aren’t even at 85 scholarship players yet.

We can’t be churning and burning coaches every three years forever.

Agree CMR has to add an aggressive young offensive mind. Let’s see what he does.

Terrance Sullivan

Boom Baby.

DallasTX Cane

Nice....hoops! Maybe a ray of light in the darkness?? Not to be the rock to your paper, but the ACC is freakin stacked this year!! Going to be real fun!

DallasTX Cane

DTX,
I thought you and I already had the discussion years ago about posting logical thought out comments, versus spur of the moment emotion fueled opinions.

You are gonna have people stopping to think out their comments and just slow the blogging to a crawl.

LOL Solar. Great point. EVERYTHING is on rewind I guess. And we thought the OL was bad back in 08... so, many apologies 86!... last thing I want is for the blob to slow to a crawl and U to shut it all down out of frustration!!

Dude - I don’t disagree on what I’d like to see happen... a dedicated OC and a HC that busts someone’s arse for our pitiful ST and awfense. But think on this - any AD that gets involved forcing coaching decisions on a HC creates a situation where the HC authority is questioned and where if you do fire the HC, what other coach will want to come work for that AD?

Harry Miller

We should all understand that so called Smart Mark
needs to stay as Head coach Simply because the U is in to deep financially to just fire his sorry butt.
He can best serve the U at this point as a Head coach who hires an real offensive coordinator, who should be able to pick his own quarterback coach. they should hire a real offensive line coach and special teams coach. Then smart Mark could focus on recruiting and doing what he dose best talking to the parents of these kids presenting the great attributes of the University of Miami and how he will nurture their kids through the very hard time of their life.Do these things along with all the other thing he is doing at the U.

With good coaches we would then be getting more 4* AND 5* recruits and Mark could do his thing, then we would become a top 5 program again year after year.. I truly miss those days.

DallasTX Cane

Best case scenario for sure, Harry Miller.

Harry Miller

One more thing Smart Mark needs to understand "you
are not going to be any better then the (in this case) the coaches under you. I have all ways used this principle in my life and it has worked out very well.

DallasTX Cane

Truth. Great people working for or with U make U great!

solarcane

Harry
Great insite as usual.
When all is said and done it comes down to the money.

In racing we used to say speed is money, how fast do you want to go?

Same thing applies to The U and football success.

I'm pretty sure that's what she said?

Terrance Sullivan

Well played 86!

BigWindyCane

Great post Soup! Good to see a high powered offense is still in Coral Gables. Can’t wait to see what Coach L will produce this season. I expect big things. The Canes always exceed expectations with Coach L.

We have the worst offense in the ACC and if we arent at 85 scholarships yet, thats the staffs fault.

Dude on a Pale Horse

At the end of the day, its still Miami and there will always be coaches that want to coach here. Would Nick Saban or Urban Meyer? No, but those guys are coming here right now anyways. Would quality coaches like Dan Mullen? Absolutely. I believe MR can win here, but he can not be the OC next season. He had about 5 games where the O really hummed out of 30. We cant let him drag us down any more, we are at a tipping point, a time for action. We cant wait to see how this thing plays out, we need to hire Mark Helfrich when he's in our office.

Dude on a Pale Horse

No, but those guys *arent* coming here right now anyways.

Herbieibis

We haven't been at 85 in over 5 years.
If ever there would be a year for us to rule the state in recruiting, it should have been this year but slowly but surely we are flushing old mo down the toilet with this pedestrian like nofence.
The 5 star wr from Georgia wants to go to a school who throws the ball down field, I hope he hasn't been watching this dink and dunk show. If we somehow had the upper hand, we blew that.

Old Skool

The players actually executed an offense before the season began? How does that work? I thought you were supposed to wait until the season was almost over?

BINGO!!

raizecane

Anybody else still on a sugar high? ......

UMike

Does the win against Savannah State count towards the 6 wins needed for bowl eligibility? I thought it didn't.

86Cane

When the season started none of us ever thought we would have to worry about bowl eligibility in 2018.

Yet, here we are.

UMike

86, this is the part where Go lists other teams that have the same worry so we don't have to worry 😂😂 jk Go, you know you're my boy

Go Canes!!

Posted by: UMike | November 01, 2018 at 08:22 AM

Do you think Richt should be fired?

Herbieibis

We ain't firing Richt.
He just needs a little nudging from the powers above him the drop the title of OC.
Also to make a few other adjustments, namely cutting the apron strings to his son and go find another O-Line coach.
There are things Richt is good at. But he he needs to be an overseer and get some passion and energy. He's bringing this firestorm down on his own stubborn ass.
He needs to ask himself one simple question: Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

UMike

Go I'm not at that point yet, but I believe if he doesn't hire a OC or drastically changed his offense then yes he should.

Go Canes!!

Think we are all in agreement.

He need to make some changes. I hope he does.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike Yes the Savannah State win counts. So we need 1 more win for bowl eligibility.

Yeppers if anyone would have told us on Sunday September 2nd in AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas at 6pm where the Canespace Family congregated with 86Cane, Mrs86Cane, NativeCane, KYCane, Harry Miller and Mrs Miller, DTX Cane, Mrs DTXCane, SATXCane, Keoki, ColdCane, and if there is anyone I forgot name yourself in this we would have told U that U were smoking stuff stronger that even Cheech and Chong would blush. Just sad.

Old Skool

Add me to those who agree with Herbie. A little critical self-reflection on Mark's part would go a long way. As Harry Callahan said "A man's got to know his limitations". The numbers don't lie (statistics do) and there are a lot of numbers going back a lot of years.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I dont think he (MR) should be allowed/trusted to be the one that oversees drastic changes in the offense. He is 100% responsible for our situation and should have to pay the price for it as OC. Furthermore, its too much to HC and OC, he needs to choose 1 or the other anywayn he can be HC at Miami, or step down and go OC at Wake Forest or somewhere. New OC or bust.

P.S. Mark Helfrich was in his office and he thought he didnt need him, lol.

AeroCane

Let’s be realistic for a moment:
• does anyone, having hearing richt speak, think he is going to make any changes?
• does anyone think that BJ or the BOT have the guts to force him to make changes?
• does anyone think - IF changes are made - that richt will all of a sudden become a changed HC and be aggressive, have passion, and go for the jugular?
I think ‘no’ to the above, so I think fire him! Let’s step back 1 step to move forward 5! Just my opinion.

Go Canes!!

He’s currently the head coach of a team with a defense that’s uber aggressive and constantly goes for the jugular isn’t he?

AeroCane

Go
You make me laugh! Thx

TonyCane

Looking at this analytically - Rozier and possibly Perry have two more games left. Rozier was a Golden holdover. Perry was a Golden recruit for Coley’s offense that Richt felt could work in his. Jaren Williams is Richt’s first recruit, and he can play the last two games and the bowl without losing eligibility. I think Richt is ready to go with Jarren as the future, but doesn’t want to lose that year of eligibility.

AeroCane

Tony
Good points but incorrect
How can he lose Williams eligibility if he can play in 4 games? Richt has a great reason to use him a lot in those 4 games. Could JW have done worse than Rosier or Perry in the VA/BC games? Let him get his experience within the 4 game guidelines

TonyCane

To further clarify...if a Playoff berth is no longer achievable, if the Coastal is out of reach, is it worth it to start Jarren for the last five games of the season and lose that eligibility, or if you are the head coach do you wait two more weeks and then play him? There are arguments on both sides for this. Neither is necessarily bad.

We will win this week. I’m not concerned about it whatsoever. Miami 36, Duke 17.

AeroCane

Oops
Tony
I misread
I agree and apologize

AeroCane

As to your second post - I agree with the start Williams, let him take his lumps and who cares about the year of eligibility- it’s a total waste of rosier is the qb, and I said a week or 2 ago, I have no doubts that Perry will transfer. Again, jmo

TonyCane

Aero, good points. My own thought is that once you pull the trigger on Jarren, there is a strong likelihood that you never look back. You don’t play him at BC and Virginia only to sit him later in the season. I’m fairly confident that it will be clear he’s the future. Once he’s in, the difference will be about as clear as it was at the end of 1999 between Dorsey and Kenny Kelly. You really can’t sit him at that point, so now you lose a year of eligibility.

Jarren already played in one game, so he has three games left.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: AeroCane | November 01, 2018 at 12:29 PM

Why? You asked IF changes were made would Richt suddenly be agressive didn’t you?

Well he’s letting Manny be aggressive as hell with the defense right now. I don’t think he has any issue being aggressive with the right personnel. I think his biggest issue is overcompensating for horrible qb play and the design of his plays.

Jmo.

I have tried every year since the 2005
Peach Bowl beat down, to find song lyrics that perfectly describe the world watching the Miami Hurricanes.
After dozens and dozens of candidates
To me this describes the Miami Hurricanes football program perfectly.

"Have you ever seen a blind man cross the road, trying to make the other side,
Have you ever seen a young girl growing old,trying to make herself a bride"
