Only way Raymond leaves is to become our coordinator. The bad thing is if u can call it a bad thing, he has never been a coordinator. This would be trial by fire. The great thing is he is a finisher on the recruiting trail. Now he has had good fortune recruiting in Louisiana where their aren't any big time comp. in state for their top recruits. Here he would be up against FSU and Flo. Plus everybody else. Not to many Louisana boys leave the state.
The last time we hired a Coordinator with no experience, that turned sour fast. I'm sure we all remember the Tim Walton experiment. He lasted one year and Shannon canned him.

I can see how the Canes could hire a DC to coach LBs/strikers, then move that ninth coaching position to the offensive side of the ball.

Maybe it is wishful thinking, but the Canes should pick up some coaching help on offense. With the talent that Canes can recruit, their offense should be scoring 35-40 points a game. It is a matter of developing a scheme and game plan geared to maximize the talents of the players on the roster.

BigWindyCane1

Rumors out there that Corey Raymond may be our next DC!

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | December 14, 2018 at 12:19 PM

Wow! Now this is exciting! If Raymond comes, that is definitely a great sign that the defense will be able to recruit and play hard. Corey Raymond will definitely help us take recruiting up to the next level and get some of those top recruits the Canes have missed on recently.

Solar...GREAT post!

Miami Hurricane football is Sears.

We relied on our good name and reputation to bring in customers.

Amazon brought the spread and old brands like Wal-Mart/ Clemson changed their philosophy and went to the spread to survive, and they flourish.

If you want to win in today's game you better be able to score a ton of points.

We didn't want him anyways

Herbieibis

The Herb is not concerned with losing 3 star players, which s good many have been But when U start reaching for reaches now I start to worry. The 2020 guys we have lost, we have time to replace or get them back in the fold.
For this year though, it looks like this class will have to take one for the team. If we don't end up with Bogel, Hasselwood Stevenson and Zepperer, we are in some serious trouble. We can not lay an egg in the bowl game, offensively. Losing Manny at this time really stinks. It's bad enough with an offense that is pedestrian. I don't see Richt being able to salvage this class with nothing more than a patch work job. Hope THE HERB is dead wrong but this weekend is make or break for this class no matter about the Feb. date.

Herbieibis

2020 CB Henry Gray gone. Next!

BigWindyCane1

This recent series of decommits is alarming. There is no sugar-coating this. Something is needed to reverse the Canes trends on the recruiting trail. The Canes need to bring in Haselwood and few others to reverse this alarming trend. There are still some good recruits on the board, but the Canes have to close the deal.

Herbieibis

Yeah Go but no telling where we might be if we had to face all those spread throwing machines in that conference. Luckily we didn't face any good throwing qb's.

There are fans in Morgantown, Athens and Columbus saying the same thing about their defenses.

Oklahoma was a total Georgia collapse from saying it too. They got in the playoff with the 108th ranked D in the country.

Interesting time in college football. Been saying it for years here as far back as the Golden days. If you want to win in today's game you better be able to score a ton of points.

thirstybuzzardcane

That's what she said?

Posted by: SOUP | December 13, 2018 at 10:25 PM


This NEVER gets old!!!!

Herbieibis

How could we have a top 5 defense and an offense at the other end of the spectrum. A fifty ranked offense and at worst we are 10-2.
Losing Diaz has left The Herb numb and frustrated. This dude is exactly what we had needed for so long and as quick as he came he was gone.
We've lost plenty of good coaches over the years and we always seemed to rebound but for those 14 years or so he got their it was a nightmare. I mean we we're right there on the doorstep again and now we are right back to where we were all those 14 years.

Go Canes!!

Very good points.

solarcane

jaxcane,

UCF was 86th in the nation in total defense.

I don't know if we score enough points to have Randy running the defense.
We had the number 2 defense in the nation and we struggled make a bowl game

Maybe Shannon could recruit his own players here and do ok

I actually like getting kids like this. Give me quick guys on this o-line. I rather have agile guys who can gain good weight than some fat ass who has rocks for feet like we have now!

Winston came in at 240, so I have no problems with this kid. Obviously he'll redshirt and get stronger and bigger. He'll probably get to 290 by the time he's ready to play.

Solar I live in NC. My High School team is going after their 5th ship in the last 6 years Sat. There is no comparison between NC, SC, as compared to Florida. Those 2 states might have 20, four and 5 star players combined.

From Temple article today

There was a whole lot to like about Diaz at his introduction. The best thing he said, in my opinion, was that he will coach Miami’s defense in the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 27. That’s the right kind of message, including to Temple recruits. A smart message.

Herb I believe App State is in football laden North Carolina.
South Carolina high school kids can actually play(Clemson,Gamecocks etc)

Herbieibis

I can't believe it, u mean to tell me we went all the way to South Carolina to scope out and get a visit and verbal from A 240 lb kid to play OT. Those 240 pounders I'm sure are every where in Florida. At least he could of weighed 265 to 270. Now we are raiding APP. St to flip players. What the hell have we resorted too? Not saying tothis project someday won't become serviceable but 240 lbs. Never mind stopping in Georgia let's go to SC. To get a light weight. Dam!

1. IF we can just stay competitive.

2. And NOT lose stupid games we shouldn't.

3. We need a decent DC.

4. And CMR stop calling plays.

5. Other teams in the Coastal aren't that good.

Posted by: ColaCane | December 13, 2018 at 02:08 PM

Not sure what channel U have been watching but...

1. U want to be competitive? I thought Joaquin said DOMINATE and we ain't doing it?

2. We lost several STUPID games we shouldn't.

3. We just lost a GREAT DC.

4. CMR will NOT stop calling plays.

5. We got out-coached and beat by DUKE.

Let that sink in and marinate!

AeroCane

Shannon, Golden, and now richt!
Whoever said ‘when Diaz was going to leave, we should just of just fired richt and hired him’ makes a lot of sense. It would be a huge upgrade and he’s never been a HC!
Since before Lou saben, this program hasn’t been in this bad shape imo

I don’t think CMR should promote from within. He needs to go out and find the best defensive mind he can that’s also a stud recruiting.

If not looking within for a DC, what about the Packers' former linebacker's coach, Winston Moss as DC? I like that suggestion.

If I was the AD I would fire Richt and hire Brent Venables. I would pay him whatever he wanted and let him be the Head coach and have his hands all in our defense. Then go hire a young, up and coming OC. Guarantee U in less than 4 years we would have a Top 5 program. But then again wtf do I know.

Hard truths I have learned through the years,

There is no Santa Claus

It is always lawyers, guns and money.

You are the last to know.

No good deed goes unpunished.

It isn't all about the U.

TonyCane

Diaz leaving is not surprising...but not for the negative reasons that some post. He’s proven over three years to be a top flight DC and a prime candidate for a HC position at a lower tier school. It was speak badly for him if he was not offered a HC job.

When we have coordinators who the rest of CFB is not interested in, that’s a problem.

roachcane77

Well... Let's see where we go from here...

Not happy, but we're stuck with what we got.

Hoping for a PLEASANT surprise to come along... but, got a sad "sinking" feeling.

Oh well... "The waiting is the hardest part."

Old Skool

Diaz would likely be a great fit for the future. He certainly knows the area. Let's see what he does at Temple. The fact that he's coaching the bowl game is probably an indication he wants to remain on good terms with everyone involved (hopefully with an eye on future employment).

we had a next level defense this year...we did not even need to score as many points as ucf or bama...we would have gone to the acc championship

If he's not going to pay to bring in a top notch OC then he needs to use that money to bring in a top notch DC.

If he's going to hire from within then he needs to go get a top notch OC

Its not that difficult..all we need to do is get what we want in our back yard and a few guys from other parts of the country and we will cruit like the big schools ...we win we rule we lose we never go to the next level in recruiting.

solarcane

Cola,
Yup

ColaCane

I agree Solar, and IF we can just stay competitive, and NOT lose stupid games we shouldn't, then we'll still get great recruits, as (2018 class) showed. Then we can at least still win the Coastal, and then possibly beat Clem? We need a decent DC, and CMR stop calling plays, and we'll have a good season, and have a MUCH better recruiting session for 2020! One thing we have in our favor, other teams in the Coastal aren't that good.

Good post

I would love for Miami to become like Boise St used to be or more recently UCF.
We are a small school without a lot of bucks. If we were in a more competitive conference moneywise we would dominate. Until Clemson joins the SEC it will be tough sledding to do more than win the Coastal now and then
jmo


ColaCane

CMR says they're doing a National search for a DC, and have already heard from many that are interested. Hope they get one QUICKLY, so we show the recruits we have stability! Pick the BEST one and lets LOCK n LOAD DAMNIT!!!

ColaCane

Solar, it's a different environment today than the 80's, 90's and early 20's. We ALL feel the pain, those schools (Bama, OSU) took our DNA and ran with it. They have the $$$, and we don't, so therefore they can keep their staffs intact much longer, and when one leaves, they can replace them with another top tiered asst, whereas we can't. I'd bet $$$E that if we were 10-2 right now, Manny would've STILL left, he wants to be a HC, but I will say that we probably wouldn't be LOSING recruits if we finished better. We REALLY need to WIN our bowl game! Winning cures ALL!!

solarcane

Posted by: AfriCane | December 13, 2018 at 07:09 AM

AfriCane,
Like I said Canespace fans are 99% more loyal than Cane coaches.
I respect your enthusiasm.

I have continuously said since 2006 Miami will be a perennial 8-4 team that has a 10 win season every once in awhile. Sure that sounds like a Debbie Downer, but history seems to support my statement, no?

CoCane, 86cane and a few others were about the only folks willing to admit they felt that was about right back then...
we were almost burned at the stake, and Randy Shannon was a former Cane and by gawd former Canes win National
Championships in like two years.

We are a pretty good football team, not elite.
I can live with that. That is what Miami does. I always hope the next guy will change things, so far I haven't seen THAT GUY show up.

I was correct with Randy, big Al,and Richt is right on track.
We are not an elite dominant power 5 football program.

You have seen programs like Ohio State and Alabama go from elite to mediocre and back to being elite, I don't think that is in Miami's DNA without Jimmy J.
Maybe the ship isn't sinking, it may be just in its second decade of foundering.
I have been a Hurricane fan since 1976, I feel your pain believe me.

mi@mic@ne

Randy can become negative ...and with our comatose head coach it could be disastrous...thats all we need is for the defense to go to sleep

Herbieibis

Randy doesn't like to blitz much either. He likes to rely on his front 4 to get pressure. In the old days that worked when we had studs all across the front but Da U doesn't recruit interior defensive talent like it used too. To me Randy doesn't like recruiting either.
2020 Francios and Washington now gone. The house is burning and no fire trucks In sight.
