This is where I saw it.

Old Skool

Damn Solar. Not many guys can tie together a spread offense, Amazon and Walmart and make it work. That's pretty impressive.

Also, looks like Willis is going to sit out the pinstripe bowl. Doesn't have anything to prove and probably doesn't want to risk injury before the draft.

The Miami Hurricanes’ search for a DC to replace Manny Diaz is over. The Canes have promoted both Ephraim Banda and Jonathan Patke to Co-Defensive Coordinators. Additionally, DL coach Jess Simpson has been promoted to Associate Head Coach.


Go Canes!!

Tim Reynolds: Mark Richt’s moves today certainly help solidify recruiting at what could have been an even more volatile time for the Canes. Plus, Banda is enormously popular among players.

Go Canes!!

BREAKING: Looks like the nationwide search is over. #UM has named Ephraim Banda and Jonathan Patke as co-defensive coordinators and promoted defensive line coach Jess Simpson to associate head coach.

KYcane

How does Patke rate over Rumph

OK, this is most definetly a WTF moment in time.

Not happy with the decisions. From this I can conclude that Richt wants YES men, not anyone who will challenge him.

80's Cane

Incredibly lazy and stupid move by Richt. God this guy is clueless. This recruiting class is garbage already with no hope of saving it. Wouldn't it have made sense if you were going to have a first time defensive coordinator to bring in an ace recruiter like Corey Raymond. Our 2020 class would have been stacked with someone like him. Plus Co-Defensive coordinators? There is no more spinning this garbage Richt is over the hill and plain worthless. No worries next year when they go 6-6 or 7-5 they can fire all of them.

Go Canes!!

Only thing I can think of is Diaz made the same offer. It’s the double edged sword of early signing periods.

Go Canes!!

It's coming out that Diaz was ready to promote and take all three coaches.

Going to trust CMR knows what he's doing here. Defense has been the strength of ths team and these guys have all been an intergral part of it on the field and in recruiting.

He just better use the open coaching spot on an OC or passing game coordinator position.

KYcane

Hmmm
Got my season ticket packet

Looks like I will have to pay 50% more for this 💩show

Don't sweat it the ship isn't sinking, just getting the deck swabbed and a new coat of paint, you will see.
Richt is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers

Thanks skool

Solarcane

The U Talented and Smart

It would appear Jeff Thomas was Albert Einstein and Bo Jackson combined with the decision he made

UMike

I'm not really upset by this. Banda was groomed by Diaz and is full of energy.

Herbieibis

Promoted Banda to keep Manny from taking him. WTF Patke. How long has this dude even been a coach. Just effing great, now they all will have to double up, coaching a position and game planning not that they didn't have some input to begin with. Whose going to be flashing signals during the game. Maybe they alternate halves where one is in the box the first half and then one goes to the sidelines.
Richt has smoked one to many this time. It going to help salvage this dumpster diving crooting class that's coming in. If Banda doesn't pull Stephens and Hasselwood, Richt's hidden agenda fails.

thirstybuzzardcane

So are they going to take turns calling plays?

Herbieibis

Still completely dumbfounded as to why we offered a ship to a kid that weighs 245 lbs, to play OT. In the year 2525 he might be ready to help us. This ain't a baseball farm system we are running, where hopefully u can help us in 3 to 4 years. That's what grad. Trans. And jucco's are 4.

thirstybuzzardcane

I agree with Umike, I'm not that upset about it. I would like for Banda or Patke to call plays in our bowl game. Diaz should just oversee them!

1. Going to trust CMR knows what he's doing here.

2. He just better use the open coaching spot on an OC or passing game coordinator position.

roachcane77

Safe move from Richt.

NOT totally stupid... but kind of "typical" of CMR playing it safe.

If we can stop the run of recruits flipping, then it's acceptable.

Does NOTHING for the Offense, however.

THIS IS AMATURE HOUR AT BEST!

Someone please tell me how PMR is any better than Golden???

WWIN

I'm not really upset by this. Banda was groomed by Diaz and is full of energy.

Posted by: UMike | December 14, 2018 at 07:28 PM

Energy is great when you're a player on the field... but if you're a coach you need X's and O's!

WWIN

Diaz had a good year this year but he wasn't great himself!

Don't @ me

UMike

Willie, I like a coach that gets fired up and engages with the players. We could have the opposite like CMR. We are still Miami, we weren't going to hire some big time name. The system will probably stay largly the same. I will take Banda over D'No any MF day, so it could be worse. I would assume they are on a short leash.

SOUP

SHORT LEASH? How many years do they get while getting it right from the bong smoker?

DallasTX Cane

Someone please tell me how PMR is any better than Golden???

Posted by: WWIN | December 14, 2018 at 08:56 PM

No defense of the OC position offered. But... does 1 division champ and 1 bowl win (as an underdog no less) with possibly another in 3 years count?? Sounds better than notsoGolden & Onion.

WWIN

If you don't know X's and O's and won't matter how much energy you got... you'll need that energy to pack up your belongings out of your office lol!

We had 1.5 million to pay.... how come we couldn't get a big name? Stop buying into the whole UM is broke because it's a a private school narrative.

We don't know if they'll be better than D'no or not. LOL at Pastor having a corch on a short leash!

WWIN

Posted by: DallasTX Cane | December 14, 2018 at 09:29 PM

Golden won the coastal once.

Golden was facing a death penalty scare, never had a full roster and didn't have the money to pay assistant's like Pastor... so what's PMR's excuse?

Herbieibis

WWIN:
Say what. U should thank God we had Diaz, otherwise we would be 3-9 and a ship without a rudder. We don't even have any oars. What he did for the defense is definitely a wtf moment but that is the least of our problems. The offense, the special teams, the QB's and the recruiting are our biggest problems and nothing has been solved.

Posted by: WWIN | December 14, 2018 at 09:01 PM

I kinda agree! Teams with good QBs exposed Diaz

WWIN

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 14, 2018 at 09:38 PM

I never said Diaz was the weakest link... of course he was better than our offense and special teams but what is that saying? Who did we face this year that was good offensively?

Let's not forget that Diaz was No'd in Texas... how many good years has Diaz had as a DC in his 13yrs... 3 or 4???

thirstybuzzardcane

Here's Zion Nelsons highlights. IMO the kid looks pretty strong already. Very very quick off the ball. Video doesn't show any pass protection though. Needs to get to around 290lb which no doubt he will.

https://www.hudl.com/video/3/7564397/5ab44931ab926d2510e4aba9

BEERicane

Name one team with a good QB that “exposed” Diaz. You are fucking high

BEERicane

Try this on TBC. Richt gets exposed by any team with a defense. To be fair, I should specify P5 team...

thirstybuzzardcane

2017 against Pitt, Virginia, Clemson, and Wisconsin our defense got shredded!

WWIN

Name one team with a good QB that “exposed” Diaz. You are fucking high

Posted by: BEERicane | December 14, 2018 at 09:55 PM

How bout I name you some average QB's that exposed him? UNC's QB's, Virginia's QB, Pitts QB, Clemson's QB, Wisconsin QB... all last year

BEERicane

Hmmm.... that shit in the past.,, how about this year?

WWIN

Great DC's don't give up 550yds rushing in ONE GAME to BYU!

BEERicane

He didn’t get hired last year. He got hired this year. Stick to current-ish events.

thirstybuzzardcane

2018 we played bad teams so there wasn't really anyone to expose him. Probably easiest schedule we've had in a long long time and yet we still lose 5 games!

DallasTX Cane

Posted by: WWIN | December 14, 2018 at 09:35 PM

So in your desire to raise up Richt as the worst ever, you’re now on some kind of Golden bandwagon? Uh, ok...

When was the Coastal won?
2015 - the year Clemson dropped 58 on us?
2014 - the 6-7 year we lost our final 4?
2013 - good year, finished 9-3... 2nd place in the Coastal, only lost to Louisville 36-9 in our bowl.
2012 - 7-5 year... good for a 3-way tie for the Coastal
2011 - Goldie’s 1st season, 6-6 actually understandable given all the crap going on around the program

Yeah our awfense was dam awful... was, no IS dam awful. But we’re stil better off now than then and if he left right now, Richt would be leaving the program better than he found it. If nothing changes for the better by this time next year, then any good done year 1-2 will have been wasted.

WWIN

Did you misread the part where I said "he had a good year THIS YEAR but he's still not great"?

Which position on defense was the worst coached position? I'll answer it for ya... the linebackers! Who coached this position?

thirstybuzzardcane

I don't think we played against a good QB all year in 2018.

BEERicane

This year is 100% on Richt and exactly ZERO-Fukkn % on Diaz.

thirstybuzzardcane

Francois was probably the best we've played against!

I agree!

BEERicane

Richt can suck a big old bag of dyyyyk. Lost the team when he went back to Rosier. Team quit on him as a result and gave him a vote of no confidence. Yet, he still gets to control the O.

WWIN

Posted by: DallasTX Cane | December 14, 2018 at 10:09 PM

NO! I thought Golden was the worst but now Richt has topped him!

WWIN

This year is 100% on Richt and exactly ZERO-Fukkn % on Diaz.

Posted by: BEERicane | December 14, 2018 at 10:12 PM

CORRECT! Diaz was the one bright spot THIS YEAR

TruCane81

This could be really, really bad.

But I think it could set up really really good.

Maybe amazing.

I think these guys learned a big lesson in the jump in production when we reduced blitzing and gave the blitzes we did run much better purpose and timing. Both the timing of when they were called with disguising who is coming.

We tossed that weak ass prevent cover 3 and went way more man this year. Reduced safety blitzing and brought linebackers more. When the safeties came, it was hard, determined and confident. That hit Redwine put on Francois still gives me goosebumps.

Stick with the man coverage, play the interior receivers aggressively and blitz the middle. The occasional safety and corner blitzes will be more mirderous than ever.

Long as they don’t get pressured and panic into over blitzing our best PILLAGE may be ahead of us.

Simpson is a HUGE X factor.

I think this guy is a legend in the making and we should keep him AT ALL COST.

Legendary high school. Snatched up by the pros and is well respected. Came in as a rookie position coach and outperformed a guy who MANY regard as the best in the country. His rise has been meteoric and he has the coveted “it” factor.

This guy could attain success we have never seen before.

I know they lack typical experience, but they have risen to the occasion at every call.

I think they will do the same and probably outperform Manny, especially on the trail.

I am good with this and actually a little excited.

Now about that offense..........

mi@mic@ne

It looks like the FIU Panthers have found another winning quarterback.

The Panthers, who helped send Alex McGough to the NFL Draft this past April and have Conference USA’s Newcomer of the Year James Morgan as their current quarterback, are set to sign Nashville pro-style passer Stone Norton on Dec. 19.

Norton, a 6-3, 190-pounder who is ranked the No. 2 quarterback in Tennessee, just wrapped up his senior season, leading Davidson Academy to an undefeated record and a state title.

lmao Butch on the hunt

Herbieibis

WWIN,
If u look at an earlier post I made about us playing a bunch of spread teams. We we're lucky we didn't play any team that had a great throwing QB or ran a true spread. If we played in the big 8 we would get torched occasionally through the air.

Herbieibis

Hey my high school is going for number 5 in the last 6 years, does this qualify those coaches as college ready?

TruCane81

Have em do a year in the pros and an awesome rookie year at a major college program.

Then we can talk.

I feel your reservations, Herb.

I admitted that this could be really bad, but every time we have doubted these guys, they have performed excellently.

I see no reason to doubt them now.

As always, time will tell.

TruCane81

Solar, that is a long time and a lot of games running a program with high expectations.

He is not the typical rookie g.a. promoted coach.

Posted by: WWIN | December 15, 2018 at 12:09 AM

Herbie spit a good argument but still, you can only play the teams on the schedule. THE PILLAGE dominated for the most part.

Got torched by some scrubs last year. This year was much better. Diaz grew.

By the same logic, o should have dominated because we only played TWO top 50 defenses.

How did that go? Ranked in the 90s out of like 130 teams.

Can’t take nothing for granted.

raizecane

It may be the scotcheee-rooooo but I think CMR is just "the tops" with this latest move / promotion :-). These coaches have relationships with players and recruits. If this class goes to shit, next year's class can't make things right......consistency is key, grasshopper.

His Majesty The Dude on High

I dont get this being called the safe pick. This was a very risky pick. The safe thing to do, is to hire someone with a proven track record.

WWIN

Posted by: TruCane81 | December 15, 2018 at 12:15 AM

Nobody's making the argument that the awfense was good.

The defense played good against bad offense's and the awfense played bad against bad defense's

WWIN

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | December 15, 2018 at 12:53 AM

Well it was... especially in regards to bringing a outsider in that might oppose what you say. This is almost like him hiring his son as QB coach

Go Canes!!

Posted by: WWIN | December 14, 2018 at 10:06 PM

This is a big a pile of bs as your 2003 sec Championship game nonsense.

Post the stats of those QBs. Clemson and Wisconsin’s QBs had good games, the rest were garbage.

His Majesty The Dude on High

I thought we was into winning football games? If thats the case, safe is Ansley, Grinch, Schiano, Raymond or any number of great DCs that can be had. This guy doesnt hire an OC and I move to Missouri.

WWIN

You post em Mr Spin Cycle!

WWIN

Did anybody want Diaz before Richt brought him here? NO! There was a reason why... just like there was a reason why Richt got fired

His Majesty The Dude on High

Im not even sure how good Manny was. I liked him... but he couldnt croot very well and the Coastal is so trash its hard to tell, but at least he took care of the Coastal, got our swag back on D. This was the perfect time to make a power move, but Miami is has a mid tier team mentality but croots at a top 25 level.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: WWIN | December 15, 2018 at 01:31 AM

I wanted Manny. I thought he do what he did.

Go Canes!!

Kurt Benkert was brilliant for Virginia (6-5, 3-4), completing 28 of 37 passes for 384 yards and four touchdowns.

The game started at noon, and it wasn't until 2:21 p.m. that Benkert took aim at a receiver and missed. He started 18 for 19 for 288 yards and four touchdowns in a little over a half, the only incompletion in that span being an intentional one -- he threw the ball away to avoid what would have been a sack by Miami's Chad Thomas.

http://www.espn.com/college-football/recap?gameId=400937525
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah this was definitely garbage... and how good do you think Benkert was? 🤣🤣🤣

And this was at HardRock!

Go Canes!!

Now do the second half.

sugarcane

wanted Manny. I thought he do what he did.

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | December 15, 2018 at 01:32 AM

That's what she said

Go Canes!!

We came out flat after back to bacl huge games but outscored Pitt 30-0 to end the game. That same Pitt QB threw a pick six to Jaquan and they had about one first down from mid 3rd quarter on.

Funny when The Turds were down 21-3 and came back to beat a crap Vanderbilt team this year you called it great coaching by Mullen. But when we do it our coaches are being exposed.

Keep talking down at us. You always know more than we do.

BEERicane

I would take literally any other OC over Richt. He is the worst. Just a stubborn ass who thinks, nay, believes in something despite the mountain of evidence what he believes doesn’t work. Get any other OC or start the buyout process. Absolutely the worst coach in college. Bring back Golden!

TJL

Mullen is going to coach circles around these 2 DC clowns Richt promoted opening game next year--vault it

thirstybuzzardcane

Hmmmmmmmm!

https://twitter.com/khris_a1/status/1073754434449170432?s=19

AeroCane

Go - Mullen is in his first year!
Richt in his 3rd
No excuses - we have a bad, non passionate coach and yes, he will figure out a way to lose 3,4 or 5 games next year in his freaking 4th year!
I hate the gators, but Mullins is a better coach than richt if not for the reason that there aren’t many coaches worse than richt!
AND, he effing thinks his offense works lol; offense can be pretty easy with our talent IF we used it correctly and used the right players (ie lingard, cam, Pope, Hightower rather than dee ‘dropems’ wiggins, deejay (who I love butbis not near the talent of lingard, etc)

AeroCane

Beer - correct!

AeroCane

PS if we used Jett Thomas correctly, he’d still be on the team!
If we used lingard correctly, he would of been practicing differently (ie with the firsts) and who knows maybe he doesn’t get injured (maybe he does but my point is made)

AeroCane

I think BJ made the easy move (but very wrong) by hiring richt! Now I think richt did the same thing - we should of brought in another young, aggressive DC; I think Banda could be good but he will Never get a recruit that the big dogs want (unless they are coming to the U no matter what); I do think our D will still be aggressive and good, but again, same thing Dude said ‘currently we have a mid tier mentality’ and that’s all we are - an average team at best with richt. I said it after the FSU game, this was our year to crush them and with richt, we almost lost. Time to move on but that is only wishful thinking!

Aerocane

Last thing
Now that manny has head coach experience, let’s fire richt and bring him back as head coach - he can bring in a OC/qb coach and a OL coach and leave everything else alone and I’d be Very happy!
Lol

VA Cane


SHORT LEASH? How many years do they get while getting it right from the bong smoker?

When I was young.....long time ago boss...my weapon of choice was a nice bowl....easily cleaned in a little bowl of alcohol, easy for quick hits.
I think CMR is a bowl guy....bongs spill easy, smell from first hit and get dirty...harder to clean!

None the less....cat is smoking something strong from something....maybe he's a Bambu paper guy.....and the mans thinking is ....clouded!!!!!

This has turned out to be a horrible decision by BOT and AD....we are going nowhere soon....the damn 12% bus is flying alright....in reverse!!!!

CGNC

"Stop buying into the whole UM is broke because it's a a private school narrative."

Agreed WWIN. Everyone (fans of other schools) thinks people are out panhandling for money at UM and that the weightroom has picnic benches. IMO the school likes it that way so they can continue to send emails asking for more money. As a private school they are not required to divulge $$$.

CGNC

LOL! We have PMR smoking on a bong and eating empanadas. We are a very funny bunch.

GO Canespace- is what SHE said

mi@mic@ne

Manny did not have an impressive record when he came to coach. And it took him a few seasons to have a dominating defense. The problem is that if we had won 10 games this year we could have cruited some serious alpha dogs. This is why I was so upset when Richt brought in the qb who could not hit the broad side of a barn door. The corch took too long getting the young receivers and backs ready to play from day one.So now we have taken a step back because of the corches terrible decisions. I like Simpsons record.. he could have given VA a run for his money..lol..but Simpson is the only guy who has proven that he can win. Richt should start listening to him before he makes a decisions about who plays. But Simpson is a defensive guy so we need to bring in a OC. As of now I see no difference between Richt and Goldilox...we are on that same road.

mi@mic@ne

Winning makes coaches great recruiters...its very simple...the d coaches want to be a head coach one day then start winning.

mi@mic@ne

dont you think it is easier for Kuligowski to recruit this year than at the U? Why..because they tide wins games and dominates.

mi@mic@ne

The way you get these guys to play at another level is if they start losing you replace them....and then you give them part time play..but we did not develop our young guys..who were 4 star guys...when a player feels like he can be replaced he will be motivated...
