If Diaz leaves we'll be fine as long as we bring in a DC that runs a 1 gap system

SOUP

So we are taking a poll on who is to blame for the Hurricanes poor showing this season. Terrance says it is mostly the players fault and I say that it is mostly the coaches fault. Some say it is a shared 50/50 problem. What do U think?

I say 85% coaches/15% players.

Please post your % comments here!

Herbieibis

75% coaching
25% players

AeroCane

Definitely closer to 85/15 on the coaches. They are the ones that have to develop and coach up the kids they recruit; they have to have a offensive and defensive system that fits the kids in their geographical area and whom they recruit; Diaz succeeded; richt failed terribly

I am surprised it's not 100% coaches blame and 0% players blame from all the dogpilling from most on here lol.

SOUP

Don't go extreme on us Terrance at the 100% level. Advocate your point and let us see where the results lie?

#FairAndBalanced

Terrance Sullivan

If calling a spade a spade is extreme then call me King Extreme lol.

CoCane

It's %100 coaching.

Whatever % of blame you try to put on the players is still on the coaching.

WHY???

THE COACHES RECRUITED THE PLAYERS! Duh...

It all points to coaching

CoCane

The lifeline of a college football program is recruiting. The COACH has to evaluate properly.

So if the lineman can't block. Coaching
If the WR and TE can't catch. Coaching
If the RB can't shake loose and and get yards. Coaching
If the QB can't read defenses, make good decisions and throw strait. Coaching
If special teams are a liability. Coaching
If the DL can't penetrate and cause pressure. Coaching
If the LB misses tackles, can't fight of blocks and can't run fast. Coaching
If the DB's can't cover and turn their head around for the ball in the air... You guessed it COACHING

Miami doesnt care enough to make their own changes on awfense. Why should anyone care if the DC gets paid then? Richt tied his own noose by disregarding the need for an actual OC that knows what hes doing and Miami gave him the rope to do it. If anything, Diaz leaving makes the whole process shorter, the only downside of course is the same chuckleheads that hired MR will hire the next bad coach, and will let him make the same mistakes.

Harry Miller

I am almost with you CoCane. Example Perry just acting stupid texting instead of studying film.

90% coaching.
!0% players

Remember I always say you are no better then the ones you have under you and how you train or coach them.

Herbieibis

From the way he is recruiting by offering Beck and 2 other kids one from Conn. and the other from Cali. all 3 are pro-style QB's. He ain't changing. So unless we bomb in the bowl with another offensive shyt show, the only way he changes, is if James makes him.

Go Canes!!

50% coaching
20% players
20% inexperience
10% talent

Go Canes!!

We had a ton of plays last year with this lineup on the field:

Perry-Freshman
Wiggins-Freshman
Scaife-Freshman
Jordan-Freshman
Dallas-Sophomore
Donaldson-Sophomore
Harley-Sophomore
Thomas Sophomore

Homer is the only real leader they had. That matters.

Like I said, I expect a lot of improvement from the players and next year the offense will be better. But the limitations it has because of it's lack of innovation and creativity it will never be elite.

Diaz interviewing for Temple job today

solarcane

Current Temple football player

Truer words were never spoken


Redshirt-junior running back Jager Gardner tweeted that so far during his college career, he has had two head coaches and five position coaches.

“Never commit to a school because of a coach,” he wrote. “Always Commit to a school…because [of the] Education, Culture of the team and the development as a person.”

Solarcane Big Facts Brotha

solarcane

Sully,

Reading the Temple blog the former players are pulling for fran brown because he can recruit... new jersey
Schiano wants the job, Jimbos dc at tam and Diaz seem to be the front-runners

Go Canes!!

Don’t think he’s going to get it. He’s not a dynamic recruit and too many guys with Northeastern ties want it.

Terrance Sullivan

Great Stuff Solar.

solarcane

Go Canes I agree
I hope Shiano gets it and Diaz stays
If not Diaz will take all his u recruits and probably Amari carter
Plus every Cane that can go pro is out of here if Diaz goes

Terrance Sullivan

I think the Texas A&M DC gets the job personally. We will be fine.

👆👆👆 I like this guy!!!

Herbieibis

If we lose Diaz we are sunk for the foreseeable future.
Watching the defense play is the only constant on that team. They had 2 bad halves the whole year.
Losing him would probably mean Pinkney and Quarterman would leave and they may be gone anyway but I definitely can't see them staying if he leaves.
Brownlee and Soloman are swingng in the breeze and would be gone.
Diaz ain't ready just yet. Schiano wants the job and if I were picking from a bunch of coordinators I would be after someone that knows the area and has ties plus is a good recruiter.

Terrance Sullivan

We will be just fine relax. How many of you were hyperventilating when we lost Coach Kul the DL Coach and when we hired Coach Simpson to replace him people were skeptical I dont here any complaints now. IJS. I Love Manny and think he is awesome without question but I think we will be okay.

Old Skool

Someone explain the logic to me???

On Hurricane Hotline today, Richt said that the rules allow for 15 practices in preparation for a bowl game, however, he's only going to use 8. If a constant coaching refrain regarding the offense all year was that the players didn't execute, why give up 7 practices? I'm not a highly paid football coach, but I believe that practice improves performance and if not for this year than the next. I would take advantage of the extra practice to work with guys who'll be on the team next year. Of course, I could be delusional.

Terrance Sullivan

That's a great question Old Skool?

True words TSully, Diaz could be our future great HC who needs experience as an HC.... Lord knows he's learned allot of things not to do!

He had to cut the practices in half to go find some dam O-Tackles to run this choked on carbon sputtering offense. He thought it would be a good idea since we have 12 guards and centers and one tackle. Time is running out on this clueless wonder, also what's those Xtra practices going to help that the last 4 months couldn't accomplish.

OK, to be fair to Terrance he never said that it was ALL the players fault, and I never said it was ALL the coaches fault. Of course ALL reasonable people know that they BOTH share blame.

My only point was who was MORE responsible the players or the coaches and I think that most would agree that it falls more on the coaches (60-80%) than the players (20-40%).

Can we agree on that?

Posted by: SOUP | December 11, 2018 at 04:51 PM

This year, it's 60% the players, 40% coaching. Coaches did a horrible job with the off-season opener plan and the bye week this year getting the team prepared while special teams was below average too often to just lay it at personnel deficiencies. Players did pretty bad consistently bringing anything close to their A game off an entire bus much less two from the opener until the regular season finale and that's something they'll have to improve on from within themselves next season.

Can't only blame Smart Mark on down the staff for the redshirt/true seniors and redshirt juniors unless they're transfers like that second team All-American and then you can only really blame them for not getting a few more transferred in with Willis unless you're reaching.

I'd hardly call it raging. If's it's raging that's a fire with its act together and plenty of fuel. Our offense is like a sputtering bunch of embers that rarely catch fire and are satisfied to flicker out in the dirt.

If u read Barry Jackson's piece on our offense and the recruits they are going after and The Herb said WTf. Turning over every rock they can find and offering ships too. This is effing what Richt has brought us down to, ground zero.offering a 2 star QB, who has one power 5 offer.
His old school next year will have 4 five star linemen starting on offense and we are struggling to flip 3 star guys from second rate U!

Coach L's loss to Penn doesn't look quite as bad tonight with Penn now taking down Villanova. Still, they have a long tough acc schedule in front of them while still waiting on a DH decision.

BEERicane

Coach L is a worse recruiter than Richt. That guy was a flash in the pan.

JCane

Coach L could have a bad season due to poor recruiting more easily understood than Richt given the shadow of the investigation and the inability to recruit at all for a year as a result. Richt may/will have a hard time showing that this year was an aberration. Larranega may be able to get through it.

SOUP

Up to this point in their respective careers Coach L has done more with less and Richt has done less with more. Is this even a real discussion?

Yep. In home with Cam Williams.

100 % coaching.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8znLAMrecFk&t=7585s

THIS is how you give a flawed qb confidence and get offensive production under difficult circumstances.

Malik was a REDSHIRT FRESHMAN in his FIRST ROAD START against a ranked opponent at the end of a lost season with NO HEAD COACH.

Started the game 10-12! Ended 20-29! Has not come anywhere close to looking like this since.

LOOK AT THE PLAYS! A versatile array of screen passes. Mix inside outside running. Option plays. He was throwing STRIKES intermediate distance OVER THE MIDDLE! Multiple formations. Lots of passing on first down. Moving the sticks and controlling the game. Kid is in complete control.

Look at those touchdown and sideline completions. You wouldn’t think you were looking at the same human being as has been stinking it up the last two years.

It’s sad. We should be praising the kid for bridging the gap to our return to relevance instead, we call him all kinds of names and revile his existence.

If this was our offense, we go 11-1 MINIMUM.

Defenses didn’t figure out Malik. They figured out the awfense corchinator.

There is a lot of smoke among people close to the players that Little Jon is a huge joke and a problem with the players. All our quarterbacks have looked BAD. Most have been suspended. So we just happen to have the worst recruiting luck in p5?

No, we got the worst corchinating. Windy saw the disorganized mess of Richt’s progeny first hand and kept his mouth shut cause he didn’t want to rain on the 12% parade.

But the proof is in the pudding. The offensive staff is largely a joke and the players look the part. When it rains, it pours. When you are lead by a clown brigade, don’t be surprised when you play like a three ring circus. Ringling Bros. ain’t close shop. They just packed up and moved to Coral Gables.

Dude constantly throws his players under the bus for execution and youth and decides to skip half his bowl practices?

Yeah Richtirement is in full swing

This is where the fans get upset: When it appears that we spend more time thinking and talking about football during the season and off-season that the coaches and players do.
