NEW BLOG IS UP!

Dude on a Pale Horse

GT getting slightly better....

helps us or hurts us?

hmm...

pros: better strength of schedule, weakens UGA & Clemson maybe slightly.

cons: definitely leaves fewer GA scraps for us.

Either way Miami has to get better. This OC needs to be a homerun. At 1st I didnt like Applewhite, now Im getting upset we didnt get him... oh well.

where the F is this OC?

I think the TB Buccaneers hit a home run with Bruce Arians as their new head coach. The guy has coached up some of the best QB's in the league.

Meanwhile at the Dolphins front office...

Grrrrrr Dolphins...

Have never said Kaaya was great. Always said he was nfinitely better than Rosier.

no rub bro....I just meant you were very fond of him....as a QB....and grant you with my experience...I would say he is the best since KD11...and we would have been much better...still with that OL in front of him....not fair to him.
Hope we can get something going on O...not sure Hurts is an answer...he would be a fine positive influence....agree TSully send Dickboy and Weedboy packing!!!!!!!!

Have never said Kaaya was great. Always said he was nfinitely better than Rosier.

We’d also have been 10-2 at worst with him starting this year. He was pretty accurate, smart, worked hard and most importantly he pretty much never turned the ball over.

That’s all this offense needed. Our defense would have taken care of the rest.

Terrance Sullivan

Give me Jalen Hurts any day of the week and twice on Saturday's and send Porn Guy on his way outta Coral Gables, Sign a High School QB in this class and send Weed Man on his way outta Coral Gables. That way we can have Jarren, Jalen, and a True Freshman in the mix. if we sign another QB it should be a transfer who RS. IJS. Basically Perry and Weldon need to exit Coral Gables!

VA Cane

Hurts is a good kid, but remember he played on a team with incredible talent....it was not hard to win until he had a great team in front of him like Clemson....1 dimensional QB....like Rosier and Pornboy!! He brought them back vs GA...with great players around him!!!!
He has a great attitude, but his skills are limited...good runner average passer....he is no better than Rosier or Pornboy re: passing......he has been in big moments but with our talent he would not be a difference maker for us or any other average program just another QB who cannot pass....with what we have now we do not look to be in a big game that matters...like the ACC title....for a couple years or more...I like him but coming here does not help him or us....just crowds the field.....I want to see Williams get a shot.....N'Kosi Perry,Ryan Rizk, Malik Rosier,Cade Weldon, Jarren Williams were here in 18.....Rosier will be gone...nice kid terrible QB...Pornboy sucks, the other 2 who knows.....I want to see what Williams has....lets not crowd the field more with QBs who cannot pass..we have had so many since KD11 that were horrible QBS we have had no QB in 15 years!!!....now Go Canes will tell you Kaaya was great...he was good... and others will say J12....dont care about his records, he was bad as well
Whoever is OC better fill the position with a good QB or develop one.....

trick or treat has left the building don't take time replacing him as your avatar or qb

Well I guess, Manny figures recruiting all ready sucked, it couldn't be any worse by waiting to announce any Offensive coaches anytime soon. I get it. U recruit all year long and the present class is the best u could do, the few weeks we have left won't matter anyways.
By the way recruiting does open back up for business.

raizecane

Per Diaz on WQAM this morning - "the first 3rd down next year in the Florida game, no one will remember if the hire happened on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. It will just matter in terms of if it was the right guy"

Translation - Dont expect an announcement until next week. Just not sure of it will be on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

When we rushed and hired Manny people complained, when Diaz is taking his time with the OC hire people complain. I think he has a vision (a correct one) for his offense and the guy he hires will share that.

Maybe its Ken Dorsey.

Here is me being positive.......wanna bet who ever we hire as OC will be 7th or 8th on the Manny list?

Old Skool

I like the fact that Baker and Diaz have been talking and dreaming about working as Coach and DC for a long time. It sounds like revolutionaries plotting or startups in a garage. I expect something innovative to emerge defensively. A defense that surprises, creates uncertainty and is very aggressive would be exciting to watch, but it should be combined with an equally innovative offense. Otherwise you have more of the same.

Last year was the equivalent of a vanilla ice cream cone. It took a licking but but didn't offering anything in return: no sprinkles, no contrasting flavors, no toppings of any kind. Borden's in the era of Ben and Jerry's. Thus ends my 6:00 AM analogy.

As Go Canes Cousin your continued doubt and negativity are completely unacceptable. Fix it?

Sarasota 'cane

I'm worried about the OC hire. Georgia will likely have "pick of the litter" and UM will probably get a QB coach or some other position coach. That doesn't mean they won't be successful, but it will likely have an impact on signing day.

I like Manny and I'm all in, but I'm still worried.

Go 'canes!!

solarcane

Manny said the even fourth guy would be amazing, he didn't say anything about the 5th and 6th guys.

Kids are getting calls from teams that have real coaching staffs with guys with real names.

I love Manny's defense, hiring staff and recruiting not so much

80's Cane

So far Diaz doesnt seem like a closer. Hasnt been able to snag OC choices. Rumor is Applewhite is not coming. Of course Fedora is out and even Coley the fallback is probably out too. If Diaz ends up with some third rate hire as OC his tenure here is already DOA! I will reserve judgement till January is over but right now he hasnt been able to lock down his offensive staff and wasnt able to convince even one blue chipper to pick Miami and guys like Bogle and Stevenson were defensive recruits that he was recruiting. Right now he is not a closer until he proves otherwise. He's done if he doesn't rectify that situation and if he fails Blake James needs to go as well for making a lazy hire and not at least exploring other candidates with more experience and better credentials.

Baker explains what UM fans will see from his defense and what will make him better coach
BY BARRY JACKSON

JANUARY 08, 2019 05:34 PM

Play Video
Duration 1:22

Ever since they worked together at Texas and Louisiana Tech, Manny Diaz and Blake Baker spoke of the ultimate end game:

Diaz getting a head coaching job and Baker joining him. That became reality this week, with Baker named UM’s new defensive coordinator — a position he held at Louisiana Tech the past four years.


“Knowing coach Diaz for eight years, this was something we always talked about,” Baker told Joe Zagacki on WQAM’s Hurricane Hotline in his only interview since being hired. “This was a dream of ours, one day him getting a head coaching spot and being able to bring me along.”

So what can UM fans expect strategically and philosophically from Baker’s defense? Very similar to what they saw with Diaz’s defense the past three seasons.

“Philosophically, we definitely [are similar],” Baker said. “Create confusion for a quarterback and be physical and violent in nature and take the football away from the offense. We share those ideas and similarities in the way we want to attack an offense. I’ve learned a lot from him as a graduate assistant. Both of us have evolved in different ways.”


Baker also believes in trying to keep teams off balance by changing defensive looks.

“If you sit on your heels and wait on an offense to read your conflict defender, they can pick you apart,” Baker said. “If you sit back there and play the same coverage and play soft coverages [you will be victimized]. Offenses are too good [now for that].”

Of defending the spread offense, he said: “There are multiple ways to attack them. Trying to make things look exactly the same pre snap or change the look pre snap. There are those two components. You see more man to man coverage than you did five, 10 years ago. You want to give our kids something they are mentally able to do - you have to stay aggressive.”

Baker will meet his players, collectively, for the first time on Sunday when they return from winter break. He’s thrilled that junior linebackers Shaquille Quarterman, Michael Pinckney and Zach McCloud are all returning for their senior seasons.

“They’re going to make me a lot better coach right away,” he said. “I was definitely fired up about that. I’m excited to get a chance to meet them.”


Baker will retain the striker position that Diaz incorporated in UM’s defense last season. That player — a pseudo linebacker/safety — is often asked to chase running backs or tight ends or receivers in pass coverage. Junior Romeo Finley played that position effectively for UM this past season.

“It’s vital in today’s game,” Baker said of the striker. “We have good players there and it gives kids a different role in the defense; that most certainly will continue. It’s continuing to evolve and that position is a necessary evil in that it allows you not have to sub every time an offense subs, especially in the tempo portion of the game.”

With recruiting, Baker made clear UM isn’t going to pursue shady characters even if they’re talented.

“First thing we look for is high-charactered kids,” he said. “That’s one thing we talked about in our staff meeting. You can outwork a little more talented player than you are.”

The fact Baker has worked with Diaz and assistant coaches Ephraim Banda and Jonathan Patke should help.


“One of the most underrated things in college football is staff camaraderie,” Baker said. “It was a no-brainer with the history the four of us have together. It’s fun for the kids to be around. When we’re having fun, they’re having fun. There is no ego in our room…

“We’re going to call ourselves the band,” he added, laughing, when Zagacki mentioned that Jimmy Johnson called his staff his crew. “We’re going to get the band back together.”

And Baker embraces the challenge of stopping offenses in an era where some teams put up video game numbers.

College football today “is made for offenses to score points and you have to continually improve your craft. I’m excited to get in the film room with [Diaz].”

Under Baker, Louisiana Tech this past season ranked 27th in yards allowed, fourth in sacks per game, 12th in tackles for loss and 33rd in takeaways

Stacy Searels and Thomas Brown will coach at the Power 5 level next season.

A pair of reports surfaced on Tuesday that Searels will join Mack Brown's staff at North Carolina and become the Tar Heels' next offensive line coach while Brown is expected to be introduced as South Carolina's next running backs coach on Wednesday. Both Searels and Brown, who were a member of Mark Richt's staff in Coral Gables, were fired by new Miami head coach Manny Diaz last week.

Yes he does with kids....who are afraid of his dumbass and hate him. You never hear them in NFL thanking Saban...glad to be gone from there...thats why they leave early...to get to the league and get rid of him....and he is a fine coach
BUT he is an asshole as a person and name someone who likes him....his wife hates his azz....she must.....ever look at his clothes? Worst dresser like Cowherd...my wife would never let me dress like an azzclown!!! HHe is a whiner crybaby bully like that AZZ in the WH!!!
Also....he could not win in the NFL he sucked and the players laughed at him they wanted to lose....not that Miami has been good in like forever...Only good coach was Shula...Jimmy and Davey won 56% and 57% and they were bad teams...Saban 15 17.....they sent his dumbass packing
NFL is a real job....very few win in college and pro....JJ and Pete Carroll did it...Switzer is credited with it but he never coached Dallas....Jimmys boys were trained by Jimmy!!!!
The only other coach who won a title in both ...hang on to your hat Paul Brown won 3 in Cleveland and Ohio States first NC in 41....now thats coaching....Saban may win.....but he is a asshole....god will burn his azz in hell!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah Tony, Saban would tell him to get his azz up u're stalling our momentum and if u don't get up I've got 3 more 5 stars waiting to take your spot. Dam coach my knees throbbing! My foot in your azz is going to throb a lot more so get the effort up!

Remember when the Dolphins player collapsed from heat exhaustion, and without a word of concern Saban stepped over him and went on his way? I don’t see Dabo or Richt doing that. Still remember Golden running out on the field after Malcolm Lewis twisted his ankle so horribly. I can never see that with Saban. I cant imagine that it ingenders much love.

Winning cures a lot of I'll and when this happens, recruiting will pick back up.
Winning for sum is 7 to 9 games and they are satisfied, to others, it's about staying in contention to play for the ship year after year, or at least be in the conversation.

You know it friend....7 to 9 sounds nice to the BOT AD...10 ahem every so often...but it dont win NC! I could care less about uni colors, all americans, Heismans....dont matter a damn to me!! Win that title baby...Kid from OK nice guy....sitting dat azz home with that Heisman...Clemson SC party city right now.....NCs baby....thats where we need to be!!!

VA Cane

Colin Cowherd is such an ass....stupid voice, dresses like a clown....knows nothing about football. He says Lawrence is the main reason Clemson won. Last time I checked, it aint 11 on 1....its a team. tired of these talking heads saying Lawrence vs Tua, Brady vs rivers etc.....it is not 1 on 1 its TEAM! I wish misery on Cowherd Bayless Sharpe, Nick wright etc....morons!!!

Lawrence was really good but their TEAM won that game. He made a couple throws that guys made unreal catches. His D gave him an early lead. To me the big difference was up front. Their OL, after a few jitters settled in, made good blocks so they could run, then they could play fake and pass. Their OL is not huge but strong athletic mobile...you know me pick them feet up ran to blocks....out paced the big boys got them tired were in their face and all around them every play.
Their D...strong athletic front 7 shed blocks run chase move around make you block them...smaller but strong....remind you of a certain team from the 80s to 2001? Very similar to our beloved Canes that won.Bama ST were worse than ours and thats bad....we suck!!!
Dabo keeps his assistants, Saban loses them to other teams....but he also is a hate monger...his coaches hate him and many player do.
He puts up a false front....he cannot be civil...I love seeing him lose....great teams great coach but an AZZ!!
Machiavelli asked is it better to be loved or feared?....he said both! Dabo is both. Saban is feared...and hated. He runs a football factory turning out product...Dabo develops people like a father. I like that way....chew on em but still love em and teach them....works for me!!!

Aside from talent on both teams, the common denominator on both teams is line play. We have to get some similar talent across both fronts, especially offensive line.
Yeah we got QB issues but this is the area we need to get fixed fast.
Our defensive front was good with Willis playing but we have no one his caliber behind him. Garvin can be great but he is one guy.
Manny will get it figured out. At least, publically he said he knows the problems and addressed the first part by getting rid of all the Oh coaches.
The second problem to resolve is recruiting and we need some dogs that can recruit.
Third we need a legitimate QB coach.
Fourth a fire Oh line coach.
Fifth a punter, which I believe we have.
All fixable but the right hired have to be made.
Winning cures a lot of I'll and when this happens, recruiting will pick back up.
Winning for sum is 7 to 9 games and they are satisfied, to others, it's about staying in contention to play for the ship year after year, or at least be in the conversation.
Like I said, I like the Manny hire, not loving it yet but how many times, do u love something on first sight and The Herb ain't talking about any broads.

AP press WTF?

Georgia and Florida tie for for 7th but there is no 8th,

but there is a 9th

But 9th isn't moved up to 8th
Because then there would be 26 top 25 teams.

Makes perfect sense not to put either one 8th ?
who cares once you are out of the top 5

Then again we started at number 8

Go Canes!!

Everybody suck?

Go Canes!!

N'Kosi: I'd love to analyze the video footage of their cheerleaders. There were some formations that looked intersting.

Jarren: It's amazing how the Clemson QB randomnly puts the ball in the air just like we do and his receivers manage to arrive at the very second and at the exact spot when and where the ball chooses to fall out of the sky.

Cade: I was trained to hand off the ball for a run up the middle on five out of six snaps. I have no explanation for this weird stuff they do. Reminded me of the good ole days stories my Dad can't stop talking about.

Boy I'd love to hear in depth interviews with N'Kosi and Jarren regarding the QB play last night. I bet you'd learn a hell of a lot about who's the better quarterback by how insightful, detailed or generic their comments are.
