Where is our offensive staff?

Where is our offensive staff?

The dented can aisle? Dollar General?


I am still reading that the OC will be Applewhite. I don’t know what the holdup is, but I am excited about the possibilities. He has head-coaching experience (which CMD doesn’t) and has had offenses that scored 40+ a game. His offense will be attractive to South Florida recruits, and many high-level national recruits.

One thing is certain, and that is his offense will improve over the “clunker” offense last season. If the offense can score 30+ a game and the defense continues to play the way it has the last two seasons, the Canes should win the Coastal Division

I like Manny. He deserves what every coach got before him, but I used to say you graded year three and fired year 5 if there are sub par results. Pitchforks in year 4.
That timeline's out the window with an inexperienced hire. Look at FSU. Taggart will be gone in October 2019 if he produces the same product that they put on the field this year. Now Manny will get a solid 3 years, but he may be dealing with a mob by Halloween if the wheels fall off early.
I will also say this...I will NEVER be the first pitchfork at that party, but I won't be the last either. I'm getting older and I just want UM to be relevant again.


If the OC is Applewhite, then Jalen Hurts is a real Canes transfer possibility.

Dude on a Pale Horse

no offense to Jalen Hurts...

wtf Miami fans? you really feeling Jalen Hurts.. kid isnt much better than Rosier, and obviously, not everything can be blamed on Malik... but... I mean, Hurts aint it.

This is the simplest explanation... which is usually right.

Shaun Robinson.

Fake Lames should be left at the regional airport in Tallahicksville on the tarmac.

Go Canes!!

Huge pickup for coach Banda:

Canes land 4* transfer S Bubba Bolden from USC. 6'3" 200. Brevin's teammate in HS.

Much needed. Much needed.


Kansas Jawhawks know all about those lyrics.

Go Canes!!

2019 class starting to look much better with these transfers.

Asa Martin qnd this safety were consensus top 10 at their positions nationally and hopefully the left tackle will be a plug and play.

Still a lot of work to do. Hopefully some more transfers and February signings to come.

2 OTs, 2 DTs, 2 CBs and maybe a QB & WR still needed. Dont know what the hold up is on Charles Njoku... offer the kid.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ wouldnt say no to a DT either.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I meant DE, specifically a SO DE that can play without sitting out.

Dude on a Pale Horse

although... Ive read we still have a shot with Bogle, and then there's the GA kid that looks a lot like Trent Harris.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Bolden can play immediately...


Gurvan, Carter, Bolden & Finley coming from the secondary with Smith chipping in... finally getting safer with depth.


Finally some good news, with us adding Bolden and 3 yrs. Of eligibility.
The Herb sat down tonight and went over our returners for the spring and what we have is a real problem along our forward walls on both sides of the ball. Best I can figureand this does not include this in coming class, but out of 20 players we have exactly 7 players rated 4 star or better. Only 2 of those are on the defensive line. Of the 5 on offense one redshirted, one was Injured all year and one hasn't done much (Herbert), Brown and Reed we're the 2 I talked about above.
We are also thin with depth of talent at LB. Thank goodness the 3 Srs. came back. Huff is really the only consensus 4 star or about we have.
I can't see the defense being as good as it was this past year, as we have no one the caliber yet, like Willis. We will be good if Ford and Silverado step up.
We have a lot of talent at DB, WR, TE and RB. We have so called Talent at QB. Who knows how good they can be if the had a legitimate coach.
We have approximately, not counting incoming players 24 to 25 four star players or above out of approximately 53 or so players for the spring.
I was reading where Bama are bringing in 24 four star or above just in this incoming class.
It won't happen with this class but if we want to get back, we need to be somewhere around 45 to 50, if we want to get back sniffing the play offs.
These oh hires have to be home runs.
For once we will have depth at Dee tackle but these guys will need some serious work. Still thin at DE, as well. The oh line needs sum serious upgrade in depth of talent.


I thought you could only have one Bubba on your roster per season unless you play in the SEC.

My cousin Mike ain’t never lied.

See what you done UMike... went all the way left... yo ass bout to get dropped from the agency! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


Check out who Jalen Hurts has followed recently on Twitter. A bunch of Miami guys. Notice how Lane Kiffin is in the middle.....could this be a sign he's our OC?


Harry Miller

I went to my first UM gave in 1946.I have been a Canes fan longer then most of you. I love the Canes. There are still a few good kids out their.
Some of you seam hell bent on helping them go some where else by constantly badmouthing our new coach. Seams some of you are trying to out badmouth each other. I don't get it.
You wanted the entire offensive coaches fired, well you got that and you are still not happy.You wanted him to do a extended search. He's taking to long now, so you still not happy.

I like the Manny hire, he loves the U, he's grew up here. He did a great job with the defense, he is passionate, energetic and he's wants to make make Miami great again, Why don't you understand that what he is trying to do is not that easy. I am sure he will make a few mistakes but I think he will fix them when that happens and right away. He isn't afraid to fire some one.

Let's give him a chance.

Go Canes!!

Forgive them Harry, they can’t help themselves.
There isn’t even a wait and see in some of them!


Listening to several knowledgeable folks (former NFL GM's) in the last 2 days, they all say the same thing = it takes a minimum of 4 years for a team / coaches (both NFL and College) to begin to click.

In today's world, it's a "win now mentality" and that doesn't happen to often. Onion - 4 years, Golden - 3 years, Richt - 3 years.

Dabo was hired within and took him 7 years to get that ball rolling. Point is, unless we catch that "lightning on the bottle", we have to be patient.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: raizecane | January 10, 2019 at 07:32 AM

Great post cuz!

Dabo regressed back to 6-7 in year three after going 9-4 in year two.

And remember when “Clemsoning” was actually a thing?

That program was patient and is now a dynasty that’s built to last.

Terrance Sullivan

Wrong Dabo started to have it rolling starting Year 4. They have won 10 or more Games every year since the start of 2011 season. I was talking about Dabo way before anyone else and some of y'all was clowning me he who laughs last laughs best. Dabo was 4-3 in interim 2008 season, 9-5 won ACC Atlantic in 2009, went 6-7 in 2010, and has won 10 plus games since so 97-15 in 2011-2018. I mean they won ACC in 2011,2015,2016,2017,2018. Won National Title in 2016,2018. Runner up in 2015. And Semifinalist in 2017. Oh and they were plenty damn good in 2012,2013,2014 as well.


Terrance, 10-4 was his 4th year.....Miami fans would not be happy with that record after 4 years and we both know it.

I am 100 percent correct. When i say "rolling" i mean no less then 2 losses per year. But I do understand your confusing :-)


Perhaps we are both agreeing however when we say that patients must be had with a coaching staff and a full recruiting cycle. If we keep firing coaches every 3 - 4 years, we will never be as we once was......but that's just my onion.


What was Clemson when Dabo got the job, is the big difference?

I have never known Clemson to be a juggernaut or powerhouse unlike UM. So Clemson could afford to be patient

Raize Big Facts Brotha

Go Canes!!


Read this article from as recently 2014.

Your stats look pretty but there was a lot more within that numbers than you’re taking into account. He was winning but Clemson had some hugely disappointing games in there.


Go Canes!!

but that's just my onion.

Posted by: raizecane | January 10, 2019 at 08:22 AM

The one thing Raize knows it’s his onions.


I would take Hurts and Kiffin in a heartbeat.

And I like my onions sauteed please.

Dumb Diaz Quote

"Look, the world has changed, and I'm going to blame the NBA," Diaz said. "Once Kevin Durant went to the Warriors after they were 3-1 up when he was at Oklahoma City — kids want to go where the winning is."

Elway and the Colts, Bo and the Bucs. Manny ... Please

orange 'n green in the vein

Manny is from the fatso tree of "run your mouth faster than a mile a minute to try and dazzle them with bullshit" interview style. Problem is it reveals he's full of it plus he was on his way out and ducking questions about what the problem was with the football team, now he is the problem because he isn't solving anything before he's run out of town yet again like every other stop he's been at.

Southern Cal's defense was garbage and the defensive backs couldn't play well enough to earn their scholarships in a trash conference top to bottom last season, but Diaz must have learned to love the useless roster dead-weight dealing with all the gold-hen girls left behind these last three years. So coach now can't recruit, can't stop the run consistently, can't get a QB to not continually shoot the team's feet off, can't stop getting Fake Lames and himself fired in record time. Good thing I guess he can still get GD to slobber to the base daily, but then again that's easy when GD's cashing the Fake Lames peanut pay no matter who GD's servicing orally today.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Why'd Manny bail on Temple? lol. Dumb quote by the HC.


Just as I deleted my comment from last night to try to make things positive around here again, then this happens? Oh well, I tried and will try to continue to be positive while still being fair and balanced.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ deleted your comment? that comment should have been a blog entry.


Now see Tee Martiy is like the next OC. Not sure how I would feel about that.

Posted by: Dude on a Pale Horse | January 10, 2019 at 10:17 AM

I know, but, you know.


Uncle Luke wanted Tee Martin so he may get his wish? LOL


Tee Martin is a good recruiter but I believe is more of a pro style OC. Said it before we don't have pro style capable QB's on this roster.
Too Jalen Hurts, u ain't playing behind Bama's line anymore, if u come here.
A little above average as a passer but a very good runner
Maybe run the wishbone for one year!
