Whether that’s true or not, we are all giving MD the benefit of the doubt and will root for him, the canes and the players including transfers until proven differently

Add me to the roster

Old Skool

I'll be under the bus with the luggage. That way if you need someone to throw, there's easy access.

Herbieibis

OGV,
Whom would u rather had been named coach?
Manny's got to to do what he's got to do. Richt got us in to this mess recruiting and by having a relic offensive system. 5 or 6 knew coaches and very little time to flip high school kids.
I don't see us getting to much help by Feb. 6th. For this year we will have to be portal U.
Speaking of the portal add Ezzards name. I don't mind adding one year wonders if we are way down in numbers but don't like losing kids that have 4 years left but hey if u are afraid to compete don't let the doe flatten yo azz on da way out.
Kids want quick fixes and this is what the portal will do. There ain't but one foot all to go around and 9 WR's.

solarcane

OG,
I was wondering the same thing.
Getting a player from the 102 ranked defense in the country isn't as confidence building as say getting a good second teamer from a competitive SEC school.

If this guy was transferring from Clemson I would be a lot more excited.

Like I said before, I will withhold judgement (good or bad) until I see the outcome play out.

OGV is just plain salty :-)

Herbieibis

Tito did a good job and he was from the Illini, a shyt hole 2nd rate bottom feeding big ten school.
Back to Ezzards, dude has a couple of options, one go to s jucco for a year then transfer to a bigger school, go D-2 and be able to play immefiy but transfer now to D-1 would cost him a year of eligibility because he would have to sit out. He won't be graduating.

NativeCane

He is salty Raize and sooner or later hes got to be wrong....Hope hes wrong about CMD....

solarcane

Raize,
I didn't say I didn't think he (the player) will help us, he has experience starting that is in his favor.

I just wasn't real excited.
The portal deal is great as a bandaid for immediate help.
The Canes future us going to depend on great recruiting.

Go Canes!!

That grad transfer DT had 49 tackles and a couple of sacks two years ago. Looks like they switched to a 3-4 defense the next season and got replant a younger guy they felt was better suited for that scheme so he went JUCO.

From Colbert to Tito to Willis we’ve been helped by grad transfers big time on defense.

No reason not to trust Manny on this and be excited.

Fo Canes!!

Meant Willis was a one year help, not a grad transfer.

solarcane

Go last week we were going crazy because Hurts was going to come here and be that guy.

Then Martell showed up and we never thought twice about Hurts.

Meanwhile Williams is older now, more mature,closer to all the players.
He might start every game, while we scream for Martell to come in.

I think we are going to be good for 10
wins with any competent game manager.

Who really knows how these guys are going to pan out?

UMike

Going by that logic, losing a guy like Thomas, Jordan, Dallas etc won't matter because our offense was so poor. Just because the overall defense sucked doesn't mean he isn't a good player.

Go Canes!!

Solar I was talking more about the DT not the QB.

As far as who’s going to run the offense, I’m just thrilled there will be an actual competition, not just Williams being the heir by default because Perry is a nitwit and Weldon can’t stop partying.

VA Cane

I am like this....MD was behind the 8 ball. It is pretty obvious (as the nose on ya face) CMR and Co had not focused at all on this years recruiting.....and obviously did not give a damn. I looked at CMR during the season, and knew he was not into it any longer. He should have never been hired as he was burned out from limited success at GA.
None of the last 4 Fatal Horsemen did recruiting right...they sucked!!. Saban despite being an AZZ, gets out and is enthused...again a DICK but loves the game. I met Dabo when he recruited Clellin; that guy was on on a high!!!
Manny is scrambling to make up for CMRs delusion and and dementia. Hell at least he is enthused and trying to make a once great program great again. You start out by being Respectable, then Good, then Better, then Competitive, then Elite.
The 4 previous guys had no enthusiasm at all....they all came to ride the reputation of the U....but none of them were HS JJ or DE...or Butch...dont understand what great takes or how to see it visualize it in talent...and on the field!!!
All of the electricity does not always translate onto the field right away....but MD is working and moving/shaking....I am willing to give the man a chance....at least he is trying and working....the other 4 guys not so much!!

VA Cane

I have always coached with the idea that competition brreds contempt....you hate the guy you go against....not as a person but as a barrier to you8r goal.....and it makes you push harder. I start every year saying nobody has a job....I know where you will be playing, but right now there are 22 open slots to be had...as well as special teams. Its psychology....ask JJ. I want every position competed for at the U...and I think MD and Co are seeing that.

By the way....gas the plane, fly the banner"Pornboy and Pothead Go Home"....I am done with those guys.....transfer quit go away.....hell let some pull a Code Red and bust both of their AZZEs...they suck and do not need to be here!!!

Go Canes!!

Herbieibis

Read a story on ESPN where Manny and Ezzards had a sit down and Manny basically told him it would be in his best interest to transfer. There's a few more he probably needs to say thanks but no thanks but because of depth issues at present will be spared his long rod of love.
These players will start to get the message, either step up your play, get your tude right or get out.

VA Cane

Well said Herbie....I agree with you on that. I always want to give kids a chance, but I think N'kosi and Weldon need to be asked to think on those terms. I do not see either as a solution to success; they are dead weight. Perry had so many chances, and at one time I thought he may be really good. His attitude, his performance, and off field antics make him expendable...same with Weldon. There is no room for these guys on this team. JMO

Herbieibis

VA,
The cream will rise to the top or at least it should. We now have a true QB coach, who should be able to distinguish who is good and can make him better and who just don't get it and bus him out.

I want to see the new gun in town take down some better than average teams, the ones that don't play in the Coastal Division for instance.

Any QB on the roster should be able to win 9 maybe 10 games in the "spread coast" also known as TNM offense.

If former VT DE Hill is transferring to Miami, then that definitely gives the Canes another great upper-class talent. With another scholly taken up by a transfer, it definitely sends a message to the current players on the roster (and even recruits like Bogle) that there will be more competition for playing time. IMO, it also sends the message that CMD wants to win immediately.

With Hill, Thomas, Martell and the other incoming transfers, there will be more egos in that locker room for the coaches to manage. Winning always keeps disgruntled players happy or quiet, so IMO, there will be more pressure to win now.

I also wonder what will happen at the end of spring and the beginning of fall when it becomes apparent that certain players at the bottom of the depth chart will not have much playing time. Will there be some Canes players transferring out?

IMHO, this season will be an exciting ride.

Jeez slow news day! It's been 16 hours since there's been any good news released about or by the Canes. Diaz is slowing down. The wheels are coming off. Everything must be imploding. I've refreshed the browsers on my news feeds at least three times and got nothing.

On-field priority No. 1 for UM coach Manny Diaz and his new staff has been fixing the quarterback position.

But priority No. 2 must be augmenting a defensive line that is losing its two best players: NFL-bound Gerald Willis and Joe Jackson.

There was legitimate cause for concern after Wisconsin ran up the gut and steamrolled UM for 333 yards rushing, on 5.7 per carry, in the Pinstripe Bowl. UM didn’t have Willis for all of that game and Jackson for part of it.

That’s why it’s vital that UM supplement that line with additional talent.

And the Canes have taken significant steps toward achieving that in recent weeks, adding two four-star defensive ends, a former UCLA starting defense tackle, three well-regarded high school defensive tackles while at the same time pursuing, among others, former UCLA five-star defensive end/outside linebacker Jaelan Phillips, who’s interested in Miami, and ex-Virginia Tech end Trevon Hill.


Here’s where things stand at defensive end and tackle, and coaches’ thoughts on the incoming talent:


▪ Defensive end: Jon Garvin will be the leader of the group, but UM is counting on a big redshirt freshman season from Gregory Rousseau, who impressed everyone last summer (nine sacks in three spring scrimmages), then sustained a season-ending ankle injury in the season’s second game against Savannah State.

Garvin, Rousseau and Scott Patchan — and potentially former Virginia Tech defensive end Trevon Hill — could end up as Miami’s top four ends. Hill hasn’t graduated yet, according to The Richmond Times Dispatch, but told the newspaper that he’s on track to graduate in May. If he does, he would eligible to play in 2019 as a grad transfer.

As we reported Monday, there’s mutual interest between Hill and UM. InsideTheU.com reported Thursday that Hill is expected to transfer to Miami, but that’s not confirmed — and he has tweeted about both UM and UCF in recent days. If he joins UM, he has a decent chance of starting. He had 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss in three games this past season before being dismissed from the Hokies program after a September loss to Old Dominion.

UCLA’s Phillips, if he ends up at Miami, likely would need to sit out a year unless he secures a waiver. Phillips told me Wednesday he was working with UM coaches to coordinate a visit here.


If Hill or another grad transfer doesn’t enroll, Patrick Joyner Jr. and freshmen Jahfari Harvey and Cameron Williams will compete for the No. 4 defensive end job. Joyner played in four games and thus did not burn his redshirt.


Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons four-star end Khris Bogle will join that group if UM can get him to flip from Alabama. He’s considering visiting UM the weekend of Feb. 1 after a visit to UF this weekend.


The UM staff has been raving about Harvey, who is already enrolled and will participate in spring football.

“Another kid they don’t even realize how good he is,” co-defensive coordinator Ephraim Banda said of Harvey. “I talked to coaches during the recruiting process; they come and see him, say `Have you seen that d-end from Vero?’ I’m like `Yeah, he’s committed to us.’ They’re like `Dang, he’s going to kill every tackle in our conference.’ … Very ,very talented, twitched up kid, a steal.”

Outside linebackers coach and special teams coach Jonathan Patke said Harvey is “a steal; he’s one of the best defensive ends in this state, in the country. We got on him early and stayed committed with the Canes. You can ask many coaches around this country. He’s a diamond in the rough. Not even a diamond in the rough, because people found out about him. He’s one of the most talented pass rushers in the country. He is going to get on a nutrition plan and work with them and go through spring football. His defense will be installed where he gets to hear it three times before freshman year.”


And there’s this from UM player personnel director Matt Doherty, as offered up this week on WQAM’s Hurricane Hotline: “Coach Diaz was the one that had eyes for him before anybody else did. He has developed into a guy that I think personally is ahead of where Jonathan Garvin was when he came in the door a couple years ago. I don’t want to put unrealistic expectations on Jahfari, but he is very much going to help us rush the passer this season. I’m really excited to see what he looks like this spring.”

Williams shouldn’t be overlooked, either.


He finished his senior year with 91 total tackles, 23 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks. He recorded three tackles and a half sack in Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna’s 38-10 state-title win against King’s Academy on Dec. 8.

“He’s another defensive end that will come to the program,” Doherty said on WQAM this week. “He has prototype length. He is 6-5, weighs 230 pounds plus but doesn’t look it. He will grow into hopefully an NFL defensive end.”

▪ Defensive tackle: Pat Bethel, Jon Ford, Nesta Silvera and UCLA transfers Chigozie Nnoruka could be be the top four in some order, but Ford has much to prove after failing to live up to expectations this past season.

And all of them must hold off three freshmen tackles: four-star New York based Jason Blissett, three-star Georgia based Jalar Holley and Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas’ three-star Jason Munoz.

UM also must develop Jordan Miller, who redshirted as a freshman.

Of Blissett, Banda said: “Jason is the steal. His athleticism is special. I saw him doing hurdles in track and it was `He’s a D lineman? No way.’ … He didn’t waver” after committing.

And of Holley, Patke said: “He got better and better throughout his senior year. We can only imagine what he will be when he gets here. When he was on his trip here, he looked great. He’s built different than Blissett. He’s thicker and bigger. He played well through his senior year.”

Munoz, who’s listed at 6-4 and 276 pounds, can play end but Patke — during the brief time when he was co-defensive coordinator — said he sees him as a tackle.

UM continues to pursue New York-based tackle Jared Hunte.

As for Nnoruka, he could be a better version of last year’s Illinois transfer, Tito Odenigbo.

Angus McClure, who recruited him to UCLA out of a junior college as a defensive end but quickly moved him to tackle, said in 2017: “He’s got some great instincts inside naturally. He’s able to take on double-teams, his technique’s improved.”

He was very productive as a starter in 2017 under McClure and former coach Jim Mora, with 46 tackles and two sacks.

But Nnoruka’s playing time plunged after McClure left last April for Nevada and new coach Chip Kelly installed a new defensive staff and a new scheme.

The front seven — and safety — were the two areas where UM was elite this past season. Staying that way next season — after losing Willis, Jackson and safeties Jaquan Johnson and Sheldrick Redwine — will be a challenge. But the additions in the past month — combined with the decision of all three junior starting linebackers to bypass the NFL — certainly will help.

Y? L is your guy OGV. I been saying for a loooooong time he can’t recruit for shit. Here we are. But it’s OK, the cute run was good while it lasted to numb the pain of football, but deep down the majority of people didn’t actually care.

What’s the timeline to know if bolden and Tate get their waivers?

Martell +4000 for the Heisman in 2019, better save a couple bits from the gas tank of the ditch bus and put that money where your mouth is if you're taking up at least one seat on that lemon . . .

Aero,
You are right Jon Richt probably killed kosi's chance of being the starter this season

Thirsty,
Northwestern is going to play Lowndes Ga (Valdosta) this season at Lowndes.
This should be a good one.
