jaxcane,Soup,

Sorry about the overkill last nite

Herman said the biggest thing that sold him on Applewhite was that he was willing to learn and adapt.

"It’s not Major Applewhite’s offense. It’s not Tom Herman’s offense. It’s the University of Houston’s offense," said Herman. "When you get at our point in our careers, a lot of guys go, ‘Well, this is how I do things.’ Well, I need a guy that can take what we’ve done — whether it was at Ohio State, Iowa State or Rice — and say here it is, learn it and if you have something that fits within our core beliefs and values and can make us better, I’m all for it. …

"He’s called plays everywhere from Rice to Alabama to Texas so that stage on game day was not gonna be too big for him. And he’s also a guy who’s played quarterback at the highest level of college football and coached some guys at the highest level."

At Houston, Applewhite and Herman take over what was an inconsistent offense that ranked 55th in yardage, 85th in Red Zone TD percentage and 93rd in third down conversions. Applewhite described their offensive philosophy as "taking two-back principles to spread formations and being able to apply those to a tempo world." Herman said Applewhite will call plays.

"(Herman) knows I’m not coming in here to ‘Bill Walsh’ the deal and saying I know everything about football and I don’t need your help," said Applewhite. "I told him on the interview, I’m not interested in taking this boat too far from shore."

We could have hired Clemson or LSU’s coordinators and he would have left.

Guy has been a three year force, time to get paid.

Here's the whole article on Applewhite. I think I like him just as much as Federo. It's a home run hire either way.

Herman always tossed out suggestions And reminders to Applewhite. Diaz will do the same for Blake Baker!

WWIN

If he’s a Diaz clone I’ll be thrilled cause our D balled out under his guidance.

Balled out vs bad offenses? Yes!

Vs good offenses? No!

He was DC here for about 40 games.

Find me the ones we lost because of the defense.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CGNC | January 03, 2019 at 01:27 PM

I’ve been wondering why this nervous tic started!

CGNC

Ha, PSCD flashback: Randy Shannon and his use of time outs - they were always gone by the 3rd quarter

UMike

Diaz may of had some flaws, but without a Doubt the D was good enough to win more games had the offense did their part. Even the best defenses have games they give up a ton of points. During our 4 game skid we scored 13, 14, 12 and 21. Take out the wisky game and the D kept it close enough long enough, but the Other couldn't take advantage

UMike

Last season we were 10-0, ranked #2 in the country and just absolutely smoked ND... And for a moment my PSCD was gone. That shyt didn't last long

Herbieibis

The Her says this, ok maybe our defense has not looked good against the likes of Wisky, Clemson & LSU but our OH Fence has not been much of a help either by leaving the defense in tough spots. The good thing is Manny made adjustments to usually stem the tide. Yes the dam punting didn't help the defense either. Also we have yet to build enough depth at certain positions. We have enough talent to win the coastal and it should be easy in doing it but sadly we can't throw a football or on some cases catch it. The previous offensive staff failed miserably in development, except maybe Hartley. Feagles and Spicer's punting probably got him canned.
No matter Manny will get it right. As The Herb has said on here many times, we need finishers in recruiting. When u have 16 decomits there is a big problem and the sorry offense not only effected the offense but the defensive side of recruiting as well.
I know this dude was probably fed up with the shyt he saw on offense. Either Apple or Fedora I'm cool with. Out with the old pro style and In With the new. Once we find that needle in the hay stack QB we will start to roll. Once the Oh starts to roll the croots will get excited and then and only then will we ascend to our proper place and once there, the trick is to stay there. Depth of Talent is all we need. That Is The Word From The Herb!

Go Canes!!

Posted by: UMike | January 03, 2019 at 01:37 PM

Even the Wisky game was only 14-3 at half, even with Malik’s three picks including yet another free TD for the opposing team.

Under Iaz our D won or kept us in 90-95% of our games.

You can only say that about a handful of DCs.

Go Canes!!

A lot if this game is mental. If the offense is putting up points, you can sure bet the D will get pumped!

That's what Larry said

Some Manny


▪ Though Manny Diaz holds Larry Fedora in high regard in his offensive coordinator search, Fedora has been linked to the Temple head coaching job and might want to pursue a head coaching job instead, with UM operating on a faster timetable than Temple.

If it’s not Fedora, then former Houston coach Major Applewhite — who worked with Diaz as Texas — looms as a strong offensive coordinator option. And there’s a mystery third candidate....

It wouldn’t be surprising if Miami Southridge coach Sedrick Irvin emerges as a candidate in a support staff role. The former Alabama staffer under Nick Saban previously worked at East Carolina, and Diaz likes him.

Arkansas State assistant head coach Taylor Trooper, who coached receivers at Auburn and is a good recruiter, is among many with interest in joining Diaz’s staff. He had not heard from Diaz as of Wednesday.

▪ Diaz doesn’t mind opening next season against the Gators in Orlando.

“I don’t know if we’d want it any other way,” Diaz sad. “Those are the games at Miami you have to prove yourself about. … You come to Miami to win those games, and if you’re not winning those games you can’t look around and say it’s someone else’s fault. That has been the consistent theme from all the former players that have come back to speak to our team - `This thing takes off when you guys decide it takes off.’

“We’re not going to beat Florida because of some magical offense. We’ll beat Florida because guys on our team will make plays to help win the football game. … We have to create that identity.

“Whatever has been on the outside to give us a reason not to be our best, that reason has been revoked. We’re either good enough or not good enough, and if we’re not good enough we have to recruit better.”

▪ Diaz said it was “very difficult” to fire the whole offensive staff but felt it was necessary.

“There has to be accountability,” he said. “The University of Miami cannot rank second to last in anything. You can’t turn around and say `We’re going to demand this of you as a player’ and then if you don’t do it there’ll be consequences. As coaches we know that’s the case.”

Diaz recounted how at Texas “I was the one that was run out of town, and everyone thought it would be better after that. Was I accountable for what happened? Yes I was. Was I responsible for everything that was causing those problems? Of course I wasn’t.”

He added that “it’s very, very difficult but to make the cultural changes that needed to happen and to hire the offensive coordinator we wanted to hire. We had to have some flexibility to really reset the vision of what we were on that side of the ball.”

▪ Since Diaz was hired, UM has sold about 50 new season tickets. And on Wednesday, 300 season-ticket holders from 2017 renewed for next season.

UM sold about 46,000 season tickets last year and can sell an additional 1,500 to 2,000 new ones

Great news! This is a great hire! Has extensive OC experience, a history with Diaz and even some HC experience. This will allow DIAZ to focus on program- and culture-building! I like every personnel change, interview, press conference and hire CMD has made so far

"What a way to open up ACC play!"

BigWindyCane

If it’s true what one former Canes player said that Gus Felder failed to show up for an early morning workout, that is inexcusable. At least Swasey would show up for workouts.

Winning programs can’t have that lazy culture permeating throughout the team. It should be the other way around, where strength coaches are pushing players. That would never happen under Saben

HawaiiCane

Congrats to Edgerrin James and Ed Reed! Finalist for the NFL HOF. Both deserve to be enshrined! It's a Cane thing.

Just hope Applewhite learned from the whole Ed Oliver incident. That was just dumb....

Posted by: solarcane | January 03, 2019 at 05:19 PM

I used to respect him from his time making Mack Brown look like an idiot for playing Chris Simms over him in college while the losses piled up, but ever since he hired doofus and lost his job because of it I'm not so sure he wasn't a fucking idiot all along who just got lucky that Chris Simms was a bust who choked worse than Miami's own gold hen girl loser for life against the primary rival dude.

As a coordinator he over relies on designed QB runs and gets the starter hurt as a result a lot . . .

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Your blaming the play calling the reason a QB gets hurt? Seriously??

solarcane

OGV,
So we might need a qb like Texas or another Tebow type guy?

I never followed anything MA did.

Applewhite 15 11 games 0 3 bowls as head coach doesn't sound
like he will be getting a lot of offers to leave Miami for another HC job. maybe Manny knows MA will stick around

Dude on a Pale Horse

Sounds crazy to myself... but had Richt hired Applewhite I would have been happy, just not feeling it with Diaz.

thirstybuzzardcane

Miami finished on a 17-2 run before the half. Canes up 45-37.

If this team had Huell, they would probably only have 1 loss right now. Losing him for the season is going to hurt us big time!

Its a baaad look and will be used against us in recruiting, as if we needed any more reason to suck @ss there...

Diaz building an O that cant recruit just as bad as the D.

MLAlumni1970

Wonderful news that Edgerrin James and Ed Reed are nominated for the HOF. I can't believe it. Finally, getting some respect. Let your mind wonder back to the great days when they played for the U. Feels like a religious experience.

SOUP

I don't mind the DC hire at all. If Manny doesn't like what his DC brings, he can always step in and take over. I'm sure we're still running Diaz's schemes!

IMO, the Canes will finish with a decent recruiting class with the new staff in place. I also predict a 2019 QB recruit and/or QB transfer this season with Applewhite and the offensive coaches on board.
