VA I think we are stuck with him through the 2019 season - at least that is what that a member of the BOT said in the Barry Jackson article a while ago.....

mi@mic@ne

As I recall when Jimmy J was coach the d line players had to do a certain technique to get penetration in the back field...if they did not show in practice that they were able to be successful in using that technique they could not get on the field.

WWIN

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

"WE"??? LMAO

NOBODY agrees with YOU... I know more than YOU do... I talk down at YOU... not "US"!

How many people do you find yourself trying to correct a day for saying you spin things? At least 3 people told you that YESTERDAY... and you still don't get it! 🤣🤣🤣

BigWindyCane

Hopefully, Patke and Banda will help us keep some recruits. I guess we will see what kind of play-callers they are, but I really like my LOF Simpson. I think he is a coaching star and as good as coach Kul, if not better.

There is another coaching spot that’s open, so let’s hope he fills it with an OC

mi@mic@ne

I also remember Jimmy J stating publicly when recruiting season came around he would say that he was going out to find players who could replace the last years players..lol the guys could never take their jobs for granted

WWIN

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 $$$.

BINGO!!!

I don't blame UM for running business this way... I would too if I was them lol!

BigWindyCane

I think the defense played the best players, and replaced those who weren’t performing. The defense also designed a scheme, including the new striker position, that played to the strengths of the personnel on the roster.

The offense was the complete opposite. The offense played the coaches’ favorites, and didn’t replace those who weren’t performing. The offense didn’t change to play to the Canes strengths of the personnel on the roster.

Herbieibis

I don't know whose strength they could possibly be playing to with that offense. 2 runs inside the tackles then a 3 yd pass on third and 7.

mi@mic@ne

I saw Richt play the same players after we lost our first acc game...I had no reason to believe that he cared about losing....Our other coaches back in the day would have gone through the roster to find someone who would make plays,...our qb would have never seen the field ...the qb is like 70 percent of the offense...if he is not successful it spreads to the entire offense..the corch stuck with a leader who could not be depended upon.

mi@mic@ne

We must have dropped two fly patterns each game in our four losses....those small things make the difference between winners and losers...if this is not corrected then Richt will be gone

mi@mic@ne

or the qb missed the receiver

mi@mic@ne

The passing game is not even close to the U tradition...and the fly was our bread and butter...we have receivers running down field who were wide open and we could not make a connection....we were never like this.

mi@mic@ne

When we had close games back in the day we never dropped the ball..that one catch gave us the win...Portis on the screen, Ervin on the fly against fswho, olsen on the post...all passing that won games... we dont win now because our passing game sucs

Herbieibis

Looks like Briles will be FSU's OC. At least their head coach gets it.

Not good! One major opponent on the Canes schedule just got a whole lot better

AeroCane

As I said - richt will Find a way to lose 4 or 5 this next year and be gone!
This next season is going to be miserable - I hate to say it but true! But the light at the end of the tunnel is hopefully we fire richt! And kick him on his way out!

AeroCane

So with the extra coach opening - does the idiot hire a OC?
If yes - who?
Briles? Oh wait, the noles already got better and hired him

Go Canes!!

Proud of the way this kid owned up to his actions, will be a good one for us.

Briles had too much sexual assault baggage to be on Richts staff that was never going to happen

orange 'n green in the vein

Defense is only slightly above average going into the post season this year yet again at a yard per point average of 14.8, nobody on staff deserves a promotion.

Plenty of empty seats available next year Hurricane fans for home games, no need to rush.

AeroCane

Solar - agree but that wasn’t really my point

solarcane

Aero
With Richt screwing us every chance he gets its a different kind of abuse

NativeCane

In other news, down 35-7 in the first half the North Texas "Mean Green" put in their 3rd string QB named "Bean".

His Majesty The Dude on High

Pleading poverty for Miami is hysterical. Im not asking them to spend Bama money, and they dont have to, just build a staff with qualified people and a quality scheme that takes advantage of the local specialty, speed. Dan Mullen would have been a great hire.

AfriCane

U all make me laugh! I know u nancies have strong football knowledge, but there’s no way I support giving up on a coach that’s have gotten us further than any other since 2002. I think the DCs r a brilliant move. Banda has been with Diaz far back. He knows his mentality and play calling. He’s got tons of energy and the young kids love him.
As for the offense, the only common thing that has prevented us from having a strong offense for all these years has been a QB! When we get good play from QB, we will turn the proverbial champioship O corner.

Sarasota 'cane

This "move" is like my Mom making me and my brother wear Toughskin Jean's from Sears with iron-on patches on the worn out knees while my friends were all wearing Levi's with the orange stitching and red tag.

It's THAT serious folks, don't try to sugar coat this, I've lived it, it never gets better...

AfriCane

The slander on Richt coming from some of u is unwarranted. He doesn’t deserve it. And honestly, I support him for been corky and not giving a shit about what u r all saying.

Sarasota 'cane

This "move" is like my Dad (RIP) buying me and my brother wooden skateboards with clay wheels while the other kids were riding G&S "kicktails" with Bennett trucks and sealed bearing Road Rider wheels.

It's THAT serious folks, don't let anyone try to sugarcoat it. It doesn't get better...

roachcane77

You young bucks! We BUILT our own skateboards with scrap wood and STEEL wheels from broken super skates. (Hit even the tiniest pebble and it would screech to an immediate stop.) Skateboards with clay wheels were for only the rich kids... SMH... LOL.

Point is well taken though... keeping it on the cheap is NOT the way to get the BEST.

We need an OC, CMR!

AeroCane

Afri - totally disagree
But don’t listen to the majority on here - ASK ANY GA fan and they will tell you hen’aint got it and they should of fired his terrible ass years before they actually did’
PS he got us further than any coach in the past has gotten us. Lol
You’re now saying he’s better than Randy Shannon and Al Golden. Gimme a break

CoCane

Calling a fade to short azz 5'9 Harley on one play, then calling a bubble screen to 6'4 slow azz Langham on another. Is just 1 of the many reasons the slander of Richt is righteously warranted...

BigWindyCane

LB Sam Brooks is back! Glad to hear it. Brooks is a playmaker that this Canes defense is built on. A few more key recruits are still out there. If these recruits commit, the future on defense looks VERY VERY bright.

With richt as OC and recruiting for offense, I’m not sure we don’t play defense the entire game and hope for TO’s for scores! LOL

mi@mic@ne

Questioning a coach who makes 4 million dollars a year to put the canes in the top ten is not unjustified. Im sure that what we say is as threatening as taking money out of his salary like us buying a product that he produce that does not work. Fans have no power to make the team win or lose ..that belongs squarely on the coaches.

I remember the day when coaches...coached their asses off for 100 thousand a year...and we actually owned college football...getting just like the nfl..they think they are really important...only thing in this game that is important is winning period

mi@mic@ne

Miami's Howard Schnellenberger, $150,000;

mi@mic@ne

Bear Bryant...450 thousand...top salary

mi@mic@ne

The only reason that I am at this point in my complaining is that we lost to teams that we clearly were better...if we were getting better and lost to teams that were clearly better then i would give the o coach some slack. but its a bad sign that we lost in this way...not promising.

TonyCane

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

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 15, 2018 at 10:17 AM

Anyone who is a member of Alabama's staff is going to have an easier time recruiting for the Crimson Tide than for the U. It's Alabama. They're like a team with 46 first round draft choices, and have become so powerful that they're guaranteed to win this year national championship, as well as the next. 20% of each graduating class goes in the first round of the draft, if not more. If Saban stays, they'll win probably eight of the next national championships.

2008: 12-2, lost SEC Championship
2009: 14-0, won National Championship
2010: 10-3
2011: 12-1, won National Championship
2012: 13-1, won National Championship
2013: 12-2
2014: 12-2, lost in NC Semi-Finals
2015: 14-1, won National Championship
2016: 14-1, lost in NC Finals
2017: 13-1, won National Championship
2018: 13-0

No school...I repeat no school can really compete against that.

We are at the mercy of whatever coach the BOT and AD have chosen to run the show. They could care LESS about the fans. The stadium would have to be virtually EMPTY before the fans opinions are considered...

Posted by: WWIN | December 15, 2018 at 07:29 PM

That is a fair statement, no one should be presumed guilty without proof.

52 reported incidents of of rape and gang rape by a football team while you are on the staff I believe would be reason enough to scrutinize your next job application though.

K Briles was quoted by one of his recruits as saying

"You like white women? We have a lot of white women at Baylor"

That's not against the law, but it isn't, " Hey Check out our indoor facilities either.

I just wonder how important
a conference title is now when women are receiving the dignity and respect they have long deserved, compared to how things were in the 60s 70s 80s ?

I hope we are better men than the guys that came before us.

So we open against Temple in 2020, I wonder which team Manny will be coaching?

WWIN

Recruits aren't always truthful... according to a recruit a couple of years ago all Richt does is negative recruit

solarcane

Ok,
I just hope we have an offense that
Can score 6 to 7 TDs a game, hold high scoring teams to 21 points a game, stay off probation and live happily ever after.

TonyCane

Solar, you never know. Manny could be coaching for us again, after a one year “sabbatical”

mi@mic@ne

Evidently according to how Richt reasons the 4 star defensive recruit is much better than the 4 star offensive recruit. So unless we recruit 5 star offensive players then our o corch wont be successful...

Terrance Sullivan

SolarCane some people unfortunately don't have much dignity or care for certain things and will justify anything to get what they want. Let's be honest UM wouldn't allow Richt or any Coach to hire Kendall Briles and I don't blame them. There are other offensive gurus with less baggage from which can be hired. Kendall Briles got more Baggage than Pamela Anderson lol.

solarcane

Amen Sully

In Corp America the shareholders vote the bod in and the bod hires the executive team.

Just another example of "experienced" coaching?

BigWindyCane

Saban hired DJ Durkin to help his coaches prepare for the CF Playoffs, so any potential coaching hire is possible in college football.

Briles is probably not the OC that CMR would hire, but FSU just got a lot better by hiring Briles. The Canes also need to improve on offense, and they need to improve a bunch. Small tweaks aren’t enough

Terrance...stop all the nonsense about the other nonsense. Tell us in plain and simple words:

1. What is your opinion is about these coaching "changes"?

2. Would you have done the same if you were Richt?

3. How confident are you on a scale of 1-10 that we will be BETTER because Diaz left and these two other coaches were promoted?

Um... no, no and Zero.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup I don't why you are jumping down my back but WTH ever. Anyways I don't have a issue with Richt's decision the defensive staff stays the same. I give it a 8. Only time will tell if it's a success or failure. Either it works and Richt will be proven correct by sticking with the defensive staff or it fails and he will get fired. Any more questions?

DallasTX Cane

Got a lot on the news out here bout the Baylor scandal. IMO not a single member of Art Briles staff should ever be allowed within 1,000,000 yds of college football ever again.

His Majesty The Dude on High

I didnt know some of that stuff with Kendal. F*ck him if its true. I wanted Mike Yurcich for forever anyways. Now hes off to Tennessee. Wouldnt surprise me if FSU got Briles, good fit now that I have more info, they have no standards and neither does he.

I think hiring back Jedd Fisch would be maybe not a home run, but certain a base clearing double.

WWIN,
I want us to be relevant again, and be back at the top just like you do.
I know in today's climate being considered a good guy isn't as popular as winning at any cost to your dignity
but it certainly isn't a bad way to try and conduct yourself and your team no?

Terrance Sullivan

SolarCane and DTXCane gets it.

AeroCane

Gimme a breakwith this ‘win at all costs mentality’; the guy gets effing paid like $4mil a year - he’s paid to win not be nice; you can win and do it legally; I know we don’t like saben, but what’s he done (other than effing win e eruehere he’s been on the college level) that makes you say this stupid phrase of ‘win at all costs’
For example, Clemson was winning with Bryant, and the ‘nice guy’ would have been satisfied, but a great coach takes him out for a true freshman and is in the top 4. Not nice, but the right, gutsy move - is that what you’re calling ‘win at all costs’?
Is saben taking out his starter in the championship game for a freshman ‘a win at all costs’ or simply a great, gutsy move that won him a championship?
Hiring briles is one bad example of your so called ‘win at all costs’ where it’s accurate but name some more?
Is win at all costs, our idiotic bot saying richt you suck and this is what we require or you’re going to be fired?
If we want to compete with the big boys (which we haven’t in 10 or so years), we need to act like them!
Again, I hate to say it, but next year will be miserable but the good news is richt should be gone at the end or sooner if FSU crushes us like I’m thinking they might (they got way better, are recruiting way better and can barely hang on to 3 stars and still have no qb coach or OC)

Terrance Sullivan

I guess Aerocane miss the whole their is plenty of available Offensive Gurus to chose from. There is no need to get in the weeds with Briles there are plenty others with less baggage pick one and keep it moving playa.

AeroCane

T, I agree but one example is lousy
I gave other points of coaches winning at all costs legally and we are stuck with righteous Richt who won’t even admit he needs an OC and a special teams coach and a qb coach!
Remember what the law school told my daughter 2 years ago: their applications skyrocketed the week after we destroyed notre Dame! The school flourishes if we win!
We need to win! And win now but we won’t with richt!

AeroCane

We lost to a GT team that fired their coach; we lost to a BC team that lost to a historically bad FSU team; we lost to a bad va team and we lost to Duke! He didn’t play his 5 star rb nor his 5 star wr- yet saben and Dabo always find ways to get there 5 stars playing time!
Richt is not the right guy and hopefully he’ll get fired next year or quit sooner

Terrance Sullivan

Aerocane total Agreement.

Go Canes!!

If alumni were allowed to choose the HC, Saban would be coaching every team in America.

AeroCane

T - good morning!
Go, lol

I did say the alumni should choose the bot and they would hire the coaches- after rethinking, the alumni should be able to vote in a few bot members not all.
After rethinking again, let’s just hire saben! We know how much he loves Miami! Lol

orange 'n green in the vein

Ah, time to activate the sid-tard GD bot defense force. Fake Lames, shit coaching staffs and bot's born sliding into home plate thinking they hit a home run, he'll slurp all of them deeper than anybody else and won't stop sid-tard posting until he's made a sid-tard of himself for the world's amusement at his own expense.

He raved he got great 'value' in a team that lost more than it won under the worst coach in Miami football history, so obviously 2018 is his wet dream, a shit product that sold all the tickets on the illusion of progress before nobody decided to go through the gates for a garbage team that needed all the cupcakes to get above .500 for the year. Next year he reaps what Fake Lames sowed for all of the sid-tard crew on the attendance drop though, that'll be hilarious watching him try and police who counts as a 'real fan' then through attempted blog shaming posts . . .

Go Canes!!

Anyway...good article on our top incoming recruit:

Jeremiah Payton is an ‘urban legend’ in Jacksonville. He’s ready to go national at UM

BY DAVID WILSON

DECEMBER 15, 2018 12:18 PM

It doesn’t matter if the number is actually 21 or it’s just what Jeremiah Payton estimates now.

Twenty-one is the number which lives on in the Payton household like it’s some sort of urban legend.

Twenty-one — the number of touchdowns Payton ran for in eight games in his first season of organized football.

Payton can immediately call up the number, and so can his mother and father. It didn’t take anyone long to know Payton maybe had a future in the sport.

In this first season, Payton was a 6-year-old quarterback trying to mold his game after Cam Newton — he still calls the quarterback his favorite player — and it always looked to Shayla Payton like her son was running for dear life.

Payton, actually, had made scoring touchdowns a friendly competition with his running back. As he remembers it, Payton finished with 21 touchdowns. The running back finished with 20.

“We was like going back and forth with it,” Payton said. “I just kept getting better.”

Payton never really diverted from this trajectory. At 13, Payton was a national champion. At 14, he had colleges reaching out to him before he even played a varsity game.

On Wednesday, Payton will take his next step. Now a four-star wide receiver in 247Sports.com composite rankings, Payton will sign his National Letter of Intent with the Miami Hurricanes. Next month, he’ll suit up for the Under Armour All-America Game, then enroll at Miami.

Payton will almost certainly be the top-ranked public signee for the Hurricanes on Wednesday and because he’s an early enrollee he’s perfectly positioned to be one of the their most productive freshmen next fall.

He’s been on track for this since before he even began playing organized football.

Payton grew up glued to the television when college football games were on. He mainlined Newton highlights and videos of Chris Johnson from when the running back played for the Central Florida Knights. He told everyone he couldn’t wait to play in college. He even managed to needle his father by out-scheming him in the annual “Madden NFL” video games.

“I couldn’t beat him,” James Payton said. “He was studying in it. I was actually just playing, but he was actually really trying to study. He knew the plays, he knew the routes to run, stuff like that.”

Between Payton’s fascination with the game and the 21 touchdowns he scored as a 6-year-old, everyone figured Payton was destined for something. By the time he reached high school, Payton had already made a name for himself in the Jacksonville metropolitan area.

The fall before Payton began high school, he was a running back for the Oakleaf Knights and helped bring home a United Youth Football League national championship.

“Everybody knew who Jeremiah Payton was,” Fletcher coach Kevin Brown said. “What do you call that? An urban legend? He was an urban legend.”


A year later, Brown got to see the legend firsthand. Payton played junior varsity his freshman fall, then spent the spring working with the varsity. College coaches who stopped by in Neptune Beach started to take notice.

The Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles were the first to make an offer to Payton before the end of the spring, but Miami, Payton said, was the big-name program to finally get things rolling. Special teams coordinator Todd Hartley, who recruits the First Coast for the Hurricanes, watched Payton and told him he was impressed.

“He was just telling me the potential I had,” Payton said. “When he was telling me that I just kind of sat myself down and was like just noticing I have the potential that college coaches like.”

By the end of his sophomore year, Payton was no longer just a local legend. The North Carolina Tar Heels, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Miami all offered by the end of 2016. They had all seen his full-extension diving touchdown catch against Lake City Columbia and the devastating crackback block he leveled against Ponte Vedra.

Really, it didn’t even take an official game, though. Fletcher made the short trip to Jacksonville White for its preseason classic where Payton made a play Brown still can’t help but talk about. The receiver ran a tunnel screen and the quarterback’s throw was headed way over his head. Payton managed to reach up and pull the ball in with one hand. He didn’t just save a doomed play — Payton turned upfield, weaved through the White defense and dashed 30 yards for a touchdown.


No two Payton highlights look the same, and even now it’s hard to pin down one skill at which Payton most excels. At The Opening Miami regional in February, Payton only measured in at 6-foot-1 and 186 pounds, but he’s a viable jump-threat. He only ran a 4.74-second 40-yard dash at the camp, but he has no trouble getting separation.

“He’s that guy that every coach looks for that’s all in one,” said Koreen Burch, Payton’s 7-on-7 coach at Burch Sports Performance. “He’s not your very fast guy, but he knows how to create separation. He knows how to get open. He knows how to use his big body.”

This fall, Payton made a full-time return to wide receiver after splitting time between wideout and quarterback as a junior. He guided the Senators to the postseason with 52 catches for 638 yards and five touchdowns, plus 13 carries for 231 yards and another two punt-return touchdowns. He even chipped in on defense occasionally, finishing the year with 42 tackles and two interception despite playing safety for the first time.

Since he committed to the Hurricanes, Payton hasn’t seriously considered any other schools, which wound up being a major coup for Miami. Ahmmon Richards, who began 2018 as the Hurricanes’ No. 1 wide receiver, suffered a career ending injury after catching just one pass this fall. Jeff Thomas, who began the year as Miami’s No. 2 wide receiver, was dismissed from the program last month. The Hurricanes’ top-ranked commit will arrive on campus at just the right time.

Miami’s offense has major questions. Almost everyone in the Jacksonville area will say Payton can be one of the answers.

“He’s always,” Brown said, “been a part of something big.”

BEERicane

JP, just another highly touted recruit who will get buried on the depth chart behind lesser players but when he does get some burn will only be out there for the vintage Richt run(into L tackle ass)-run(into R tackle ass)-run(into tackle ass of your choosing)-punt sequences. Richt is the worst.

Herbieibis

Aero,
Saban doesn't have to try and find playing time for his 5 stars, he is 5 star 2 and 3 deep at most positions.
Where Saban gets it, is he has great offensive and defensive lines. Until this year's his QB's have been good not great but now he has a QB who can throw. There are only 2 to 3 teams that could beat them. Georgia, Clemson and Ohio St.
Our situation is dire. Richt's offense is stale. Would it work if we could develop a QB, yes. Would it work if we had talent on the oh line, especially at tackle, sure it would. We have neither of those 2 things. Did we have WR's open on plays and miss them, yes!
Did we drop passes yes. He can dial up plays but us executing them is another thing and that is where coaching has failed. Our QB'S can't read defenses. Our WR'S are shitty route runners. Are the coaches telling us that Langham and Cager are our best 2 WR'S?
With the talent we have on that side of the ball, especially on the line, we have no business trying to run a pro style offense. Bama can because they a oh line full if Mack Trucks. I'm surprised his youthful son has not been in his ear to change but maybe he hasn't said anything because that would mean he was a failure as a QB coach.
All The Herb knows is that we pissed that season away because of an array of offensive mistakes plus special teams. This offense is better suited for the spread. All he has to do is look at the oh line talent and what he is recruiting to figure that one out. I mean swiping kids from App. St. And a 245 lb at that to be future tackle. We don't projects, we need players who can play now. We've had 15 decoms in this year's class alone and that should tell all of us what they think of Day.

TonyCane

So you would prefer Payton to sign elsewhere to teach Richt and the BOT a lesson? Likewise with Hasselwood? Presumably, Linegard, Pope, Dallas, Rousseau, Davis, Perry, Weldon, and Williams should transfer now, right? Take that to its conclusion, and we’re routing for no signees and for every player to transfer for their own good.

How is that any different than what Emmett wanted to do to the program in 2012?

Is saben taking out his starter in the championship game for a freshman ‘a win at all costs’ or simply a great, gutsy move that won him a championship?

The starter was injured and the O stunk up the entire 1st half. Saban had no choice initially to replace an injured starter. He was smart to continue to play the backup when it was obvious he provided a spark to the O and momentum swung in favor of roll tide. Smart move but no different than what 50 other HCs would’ve done.

I’d say that Dabo replacing a starter mid season while winning was a much more gutsy move.

Beer - I feel your pain! This sucks and is depressing.

1. Either it works and Richt will be proven correct by sticking with the defensive staff or it fails and he will get fired.

2. Any more questions?

1. Correct.

2. Not for now, but I will be back later.

Just remember, you gave the decision an 8. Thanks for playing!

I do agree with U frequently Solar but not always. Lol. It’s hypocracy for us to consistently high brow Penn St about Paterno and what he knew or didn’t know and what his staff and their school admin knew or didn’t know but then advocate for Briles. Any man with a daughter, sister, niece, mother etc ought to be disgusted with Baylor and everyone associated with that staff.

Soup Either my prediction of a 8 either will be proven correct or I will owe U a Philly cheese steak lol.

On a positive note:
Jess Simpson is the real deal and I think Rousseau (if Healthy) is going to be a monster! A future 1st rounder
