Mark from Atl

There are so many other things in life that bring peace love and happiness (skipper chuck reference! ) - than this debacle

Honestly, how can CMR feel anything good about what he’s doing with what he’s got?
Def cannot save the other 2/3 of your team every single game!

Just sad brothers, our beloved Canes are in a mess and it shouldn’t even be close to that at all.
Somebody’s sack needs to drop and man up

God bless you and your family

Back to blaming the players and using the lack of talent excuse are we?

Do you buy excuse machines in bulk?



Have we crossed the 50 yard line yet?

Cheaper that way.

And re-sales are easy.


Good point Soup... he's going to need to pump excuses out at a high rate these days!

GD says random nobodies with twitter accounts agree with what Fake Lames makes GD say when Fake Lames moves his hands to work GD's lips. Can't make this shit up, well you can I guess, but nobody actually buys it.

I was going to wait until the end of the year to pull that trigger on Jon-boy out of deference to the miracle working he and the old man were able to summon up last year with Trick-or-treat Malik, but if they choke another game or if Pitt doesn't lose an extra one while Miami suddenly runs the table, I guess we can just get an early start on sniping out the stupidity that always is nepotism wherever we find it in the football coaching box, sure, why not?

VA Cane

Well put DTX...there are none really...but you start looking to places that are creating offense...dynamic pushing the envelop...moving the ball....CMR is not doing that.
He seems lost, just casual....ok with things.
I would say its not just him...its our losing culture from Clap, Onion, and AlPa...we have no clue how to win....and CMR does not either!....its very puzzling and hard to figure it out!


At least one Florida coach had the guts to can himself as an OC. Taggert handed over play calling duties to Walt Bell. Hate FSU and could careless if they win another game but at least he gets what's best for his team and he admitted it gave him the chance to help in other areas.

Go Canes!!

People on Twitter don't know what you're talking about either... but keep being blind!

Posted by: WWIN | November 05, 2018 at 09:11 PM

Shocking!! Check in to find today's episode of WW just completely makes shit up!

Don't you ever get tired of lying?

I don't ever tweet about the Canes.

So wtf are you talking about?

I'll tell you what. Nothing. As usual.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: WWIN | November 05, 2018 at 09:22 PM

Good God, another minute another lie.

The only thing I posted that had to do with the Canes there show the team UNDERrachieving, which it is.

How is that making excuses?

It's not. And I wasn't.

The offensive coaching has been horrendous. Richt has to hire a creative offensive mind. The playcalling has been unimaginative, too conservative and isn't putting the players in a position to win.

Does any of that look familiar?

Of course it doesn't because you ignore it when I post those things.

So you can do what you do best, twist and lie.

Go Canes!!

Closeted nutjob says what?


Better go check on your excuse machines

His Majesty The Dude on High

We lost Nunn today. Who decommits tomorrow? Tarquin or perhaps the other OL?

Its a good thing our leadership has said nothing to address the issue, and are "letting things play out." That shows true leadership.

P.S. dont ever take any courses in crises management or public relations at Miami, they clearly dont know what the f*ck they are doing.


The sad thing is who else on this team is capable to call plays. Richt surrounded himself with a bunch of yes men who would dare question hi authority of posted no danger of taking his job.
We lost Nunn. That's sad, pried him away from the Cuse o only to have him dump us. No big deal. Just another 3 star, they come a dime a dozen!

His Majesty The Dude on High

Miami awfensive recruits for 2019

**** WR Payton
*** TE Hodges
**** OL Tarquin (Could decomitt to FU)
*** OL Eguakun (Could decomitt to Aub)

Next week we'll have 2 croots for awfense. Cant wait to see how that plays out. Great job managing this situation Miami.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Ivins says Eguakun likely already done and is going to Auburn.

P.S. Neal is going to Bama, Miami is out, but we knew that.

Miami has 3 awfense croots, 1 looking to decommit for Florida. This is worse than Golden... I cant believe Im saying that... Mark Richt is worse than Al Golden... Death rattle.

Death Rattle

I was 16 when I became a Hurricanes fan... I flirted with USC during the Golden years... I can not tolerate Miami's administration sitting on its hands watching the football team burn to the ground. People should be losing their jobs but the fact is that the only people who care, are the fans. Death rattle.

Death Rattle

"I'm considering Florida a lot right now." -Tarquin


This is worse than Golden... I cant believe Im saying that... Mark Richt is worse than Al Golden... Death rattle.

There it goes! Glad you finally decided to join me...seems like only a couple of weeks ago I was saying this


Miami Hurricanes - A Slightly Different Outlook

Normally after each game I'll post the record, points scored, and points allowed for each of the last twenty seasons up to the current point. I'll do the same now...EXCEPT that this time we're excluding the highest scoring game in the first eight games from the mix. Let's see how the 2018 Canes are truly trending.

MIAMI HURRICANES AFTER 8 GAMES (with highest scoring game removed from consideration)

1999: PF: 192 PA: 191
2000: PF: 327 PA: 158
2001: PF: 323 PA: 072
2002: PF: 307 PA: 127
2003: PF: 214 PA: 134
2004: PF: 246 PA: 143
2005: PF: 235 PA: 096
2006: PF: 146 PA: 126
2007: PF: 182 PA: 163
2008: PF: 216 PA: 190
2009: PF: 239 PA: 192
2010: PF: 209 PA: 171
2011: PF: 227 PA: 178
2012: PF: 201 PA: 234
2013: PF: 238 PA: 200
2014: PF: 242 PA: 163
2015: PF: 214 PA: 242
2016: PF: 251 PA: 169
2017: PF: 240 PA: 119
2018: PF: 211 PA: 174

So filtering out the highest scoring game in the first eight contests of each season (goodbye Savannah State results), we find that Miami's offense is the lowest scoring since 2012, and almost the worst since 2007.


Dam, say it ain't so, we've got another road. Nothing like being served up to the hecklers. Tech's Dee Coordinator gets the week off, saying he'll let his underlings take care of his lite work. Not much work needed to stop Da U. Just stack 8 men in the box on the first 2 plays they run and they will be running plays and on third and 8 will play 2 deep safties, when they try and throw a go route, which will be under thrown. On 4th down they will have to try and punt and that's about all u can call it because we should get the ball around midfield, after a 35 yd. Punt. That's the blue print he left his guys to follow.


WELDON OUT OF THE DOG HOUSE TO SAVE US. Oops I forgot our losing streaks come in 4's. Got one more week to go before this comes to an end, plus we suck to the ever loving high heavens on the road.


Half of those recruits would have recommitted anyway. We lost recruits after we started out 10-0. Losing makes it easier, but we could be undefeated and Ohio State still would have flipped that running back.



Gin & Tonic

# 55 on the o-line (sophomore) made multiple mistakes at critical times allowing sacks and tackles for loss

#13 half back (sophomore) fumbled twice, one immediately after Miami intercepted duke to set up good field position

Is pointing out the obvious, that these talented but inexperienced players played poorly and directly contributed to the offensive struggles, making excuses for cmr??

I understand that some on here don’t have the ability to do anything but type bring back butch or fire Richt immediately.

But come on, watch the games, our offense is young, with no qb play, trying to get up power 5 speed. The kids have to execute better.

The team can’t block, qb’s take forever to read defense, then accuracy is an issue when the receiver and tight ends run the correct route. And we have people wondering why we can only use one page of the playbook.

VA Cane

I agree G&T there are young kids playing and making mistakes....I am coaching teens and college and my guys make errors as well. Wht do i do? My job...i coach hard as hell 110%!

Bringing back Butch or firing CMR may sound pc...but is not practical.
I DO expect CMR to make some changes...like getting a young dynamic OC who can run pro set and spread....for him to stop calling plays...he is not good..get rid of the nepotism using his son, upgrade some coaches....AND all of them need to coach instead of walking around like everything is ok ...it is not.
You have kids making mistakes you get off your butt and coach them up ...its your job....thats my take.


Jon Beason calling out current players.....says some look like they have given up.


Please God don't let us go three and out AGAIN!


VA - great post but I feel it starts at the top and don’t feel richt has the energy or edge anymore (assuming hebever had it)


Posted by: Gin & Tonic | November 06, 2018 at 06:28 AM

You should NOT have to play error free ball to beat DUKE!

Take Virginia... their QB had 92yds 3ints and still beat us!

We are NOT the only team in the country playing young players. We have more talent this year than last year!

Gin & Tonic

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2018 at 09:44 AM

1) Never said error free, just pointed out (only 2) of many examples of players hurting the offense.

2) Our qb's sucked more than UVA's.

3) More talent, but at which positions. QB = same, O-line lost experienced players, skill positions lost Herndon, Berrios, Walton. Lost Ahman Richards. Where is "TALENT" to replace these losses?

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2018 at 09:44 AM

If Mark Richt cant put a coherent O together because young players, then perhaps he should move on to the NFL because thats the name of the game in CF. We dont need seniors and 5*s to beat Duke, BC & VA, I believe so many people are still making excuses for this awefense.

His Majesty The Dude on High

QB: Perry was 3rd highest rated QB coming out of HS, Rosier is 5th year SR, theres your talent or experience right there, take your pick.
RB: Miami has many more top level recruits than UVA, BC or Duke.
WR: Same as RB except even more talented and highly touted.
TE: Brevin Jordan
OL: We have an absolute failure, but still have more blue chip talent than than all 3 teams. We havent recruited a starting caliber OT since Richt started.

Overall: We probably have more blue chip talent than all 3 of those rosters combined.

Gin & Tonic

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | November 06, 2018 at 10:14 AM

LOL, you looking at talent on paper? Based on high-school recruiting reports?

I'm looking for talent on the field.


Say it again Dude, we have more talent, of the blue Chip variety than those 3 teams combined.
The Herb ain't going to sit here and sugar coat our problems.
When u have problems, then start trying to solve them thru recruiting and coaching them up.
Look at the defense, 7 or 8 that are starting are Golden's boys. At the start of the year we had 5 on offense that we're Golden boys.
The difference between Deno and Diaz is night and day as far as the Dee goes.
The offense was better with Coley calling plays.
Except for Richt there is nobody with alot of experience calling plays.
We are stuck.
Golden wouldn't fire anybody that was one of his biggest problems. The question still to be answered will Richt fire anyone on the offensive side of the ball. If he doesn't then somebody needs to tell him either u do it OR else.

Go Canes!!

It’s not one thing or another, it’s all of it.


Posted by: Gin & Tonic | November 06, 2018 at 10:08 AM

1. No reason to bring it up then.

2. Virginia's QB is NOT better than our QB's... he just has a better OC!

3. Richard's didn't play last year, Herndon was rarely targeted when he was healthy, Walton didn't play last year, Berrios is the only player you can use.


Posted by: Gin & Tonic | November 06, 2018 at 10:43 AM

BC, Virginia, and Duke would trade players with us every day of the week and twice on Saturday!

Y'all keep thinking about talent to beat bama, and we're only talking about beating ACC COASTAL BASKETBALL TEAMS!


I see somebody sold one of those bulk excuse machines last night!


Old Skool

Jimmy Johnson as quoted by Dave Hyde in the Sun-Sentinel recommends that Richt not handle the OC duties.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Old Skool | November 06, 2018 at 12:35 PM

Read that article. Hope he listens.


Posted by: CGNC | November 05, 2018 at 04:45 PM

Was talking more about the criticisms.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | November 05, 2018 at 05:59 PM

Got it. LOL I did not get past the title....


I thought that was guy on CHPS

Posted by: solarcane | November 05, 2018 at 05:52 PM

I am still giggling over this. So funny.


So someone on Twitter goes by the name 'gocanes'... talking points are... it's the players, talent, QB, and keeps talking about how good Kaaya and the offense did the end of the 2016 season... but we're not suppose to believe it's this Go Canes on here??? What are the odds?



I don't think Empanada Mark is WORSE than Golden, he is the offensive version unless he makes some changes, and soon.

He should have hired an OC or at least kept James Coley. Coley was fairly good at recruiting I think?

The worst part of this whole thing is the contract extension. 2023. Blake James should be fired.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2018 at 12:50 PM

Wait, there’s a guy out there who follows UM football out there called Gocanes???

Wow what are the odds!!???

Yeah, that’s not me. There are people on here who follow me on Twitter and know that’s not my name on it. But nice try.


Posted by: Go Canes!! | November 06, 2018 at 01:09 PM

Silly me... I forgot that people only have ONE Twitter account and NOBODY has a second account or burner account.

My apologies



We can argue and discuss 24/7
Bottom line:
We are losing recruits
We can’t get elite recruits (far and few between)
We are losing Games to inferior foes
We are losing games to better teams (should win some of these)
We are NO fun to watch
We are losing the fan base

None of these are Arguable! Facts are facts
Changes need to be made yesterday! Anyone saying changes need to be made soon are not being urgent enough.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: WWIN | November 06, 2018 at 01:12 PM

Don’t know or care how many accounts other people have. I only have one and that’s not me.

So you just made a completely unfounded and of course totally untrue nonsense statement.

Basically just another day at the office for you.

Can you go just one day without twisting or lying here?
