yes sir. And she hired/appointed Blake James.

"Blake James has proven that he has the experience, skills, leadership and especially the love for the University that we need in Athletics," said University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala.

Alpine, I am so glad you see the value in fairy dust :-)

CGNC

DTC how are you? Fear. Welp, when an AD has no clue how to hire a head coach I guess that could be scary.


Solar, I would have taken Peterson. Still would

What are people's thoughts on the Canes playing FIU at Marlins Park? The cemetery of the old OB!

Mixed feelings, but I hope it exudes the spirit of the last time I saw them play FIU there and they.... literally kick their a%&es!!!

Me too but he was Just a gimmick coach at a tiny school that nobody ever heard of, what will he ever accomplish? Why take him when you could get a prize like Randy Shannon
Smh

What helps us the most tonight a Duke loss or VT loss

Terrance Sullivan

Manny aka Randy/Al says they still do not know who are their best players in some positions. What a 4 * Clown Show! Man We Are In Deep Doo Doo!

He does not know who the best players are YET but he has had enough time to know that some of them play with no competitive drive or passion at times? There must be something in the water in Coral Gables? Maybe time to install a filtration system of some kind. I say reverse osmosis may be best, but hey, what do I know??

WTF

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Soupster! SMH

solarcane

sully,
What a cluster this program is.
He doesn't know who his best players are?
Maybe Williams and the place kick holder can clue him into who some of the worst players are
Jeez us

OK according to this article Manny is Nick Saban and Dabo all rolled up in one, you guys are just to impatient to realize what you have.

The Central Michigan game was awful. Miami’s O-line was ineffective against a average at best defense.

That being acknowledged, is it really asking too much to let CMD’s first recruiting class become juniors or seniors before making judgement about his ability to establish a winning culture/program?

Herbieibis

Article pretty much what DA Herb has been saying. No use sweating this season. We are who we are, a team without a legit tackle on the offensive side of the ball. Guys like Nelson and and the other freshman starter, should both be redshirting. Ain't their fault they have to start and get abused learning on the job. It does tell us either we got jobbed on some evaluations or we got some lazy asses that hadn't put in the work, guys like Hillery, Dykstra, Herbert and a few others that that have already flown the coop.
We will hit the nail on the head eventually BUT got to keep the talent home.
As long as the SEC keeps rolling kids are going to keep bouncing in there direction. A lot of big games in big stadiums. Got to be tough for a high school kid to turn down. Losing kids to Auburn, though just plain sux. Bama and Georgia, I get, Florida sure but our albetross aside from the coaching Fiasco's is this dam conference. Just not alot of big games and not a lot of big rivalries. To many inconsistent teams and we are one of them. Only Clemson has played to their capabilities. The rest of the ACC is at best a bunch of 7-5 maybe an 8-4 teams.

VT using our playbook - 3 plays within spitting distance of the goal line for no gain then kick a field goal.

Wait, their kick was good

Terrance Sullivan

SolarCane Yesssss Yesssss Yesssss Brotha Our Canes Program is A Cluster Bleep!

BigWindyCane

Duke opened up a can of whoop a#@$$ on VT tonight. Duke has a good coach with Cuttcliff. He definitely does a lot more with less

BigWindyCane

Penn State crushing Maryland on the road. Another good coaching job by Franklin. Canes will start losing lots of recruits to Penn State if we don’t start winning more games, especially night games against formidable opponents like Penn State.

It’s time for the Canes to win the games they are supposed to win and also get a couple of surprise wins to keep the recruits interested.

Windy and The Herb
Duke 2018 recruiting class rank 69
12th in the ACC. It isn't all recruiting you have to have some kind of coaching staff

Good article. But there are also dozens of examples of terrible coaches that started out poorly and never got better.

All sarcasm aside, the article’s point is well taken... cannot judge by the first few games or perhaps even the first couple of seasons. Doing so is truly nothing more than a 50-50 guess. Get lucky and U can cover the world in know it all arrogance. But it’s still only a guess. Odds aren’t good that Manny is another Saban, Dabo, or JJ, but hope springs eternal.

Hey CGNC! How U? I’m stuck in football purgatory like us all. Joy.

Yeah... fear that he hires another Richt or Shannon while Manny builds a winner somewhere else and everyone asks how could u let a sure thing get away while hiring yet another crap coach for The U?!? Given that, the logical thing to do is to grab that up & coming hot young coach. Then pray your ass off u made the right choice.

OL: i think the scariest thing for me, is that we haven't even had to deal with the problem of injuries there

- the dolphins, along with all their other line problems, have been killed by the injury bug . . . i dread to think of what happens if the canes suddenly lose a donaldson, gaynor and/or scaife, even for a short time, much less long-term

lol of the day!

random thoughts:

- penn st had a much bigger scandal than our shapiro one; and it came much later, too . . . yet, they dug themselves out in record time; F them!

- that MD running back, who left us at the altar about 3 yrs ago (i forget his name); so only burns joined us that cycle . . . is he any good? anyone follow that kind of stuff?

- mr. solar: is that green jade/edness you're starting to wear?
. . . i have no problem with that; your posts are usually spot on; ijs it's lightly surprising; i'm used to you sporting shinier diamond suits

- in the reptilian part of my mind, despite my general optimism for manny, is the fear that diaz might turn out to be al fuente pasta instead of swin(n)e(y) pork chops

Why not? After the Marlins are gone from Miami, the vacant stadium will be refigured and renamed as the New Orange Bowl for college football.

Did you know Manny Diaz was the son of the mayor of the city of Miami? Did you? Huh? Did you?

Only coach more propped up by hype than results in the ACC right now is Bud Foster and he's not going to be here to kick around much more so better get that politician spin sorted out in the off week since we know he won't use it to improve the football team he's been on the staff of for a whole recruiting roster generation.

solarcane

Big Al,
I'm not exactly jaded , I just realize we are a perpetual 8-4 team with with a 10 win season sprinkled in every blue moon.
I don't buy the state of Miami recruiting is a must myth either.
Quarterbacks and offensive linemen from other states are surely just as good or better than the south Florida guys no?
LSU doesn't have a player from Florida on their team and they manage to compete with anyone.

I think in Mannys 3ed year we will be consistently ranked. I think we will be the best we have been in over a decade, I don't think we play for a National championship in forever.

big al presses "like" button; then throws in a "thumbs-up" emoji; just because it's fun, slightly immature

alpine

it's actually been a while since i've thought in terms of natl champioships
. . . i just want to see us consistently in the rankings

. . . and my feeling is, if we ever get within top 13 for say 3 years in a row, by no later than the 4th year, we will be one of the 4 left standing for the natl. championship

. . . i say that thinking that our alumni will put us over the top in strange & varied ways . . . but we first have to show that we won't sink like a stone whenever we sniff the perfume of relevance

Miami IS ranked! Just look:

Points Per Game - 100th
3rd Down Conversion % - 128th
Redzone TD % - 93rd
Sacks Allowed - 102nd
TFL Allowed - 126th
Penalties - 126th

It’s critical that we keep the Oak Leaf teammates Williams and Rivers in this class!

pitt almost takes out pennst; DOES take down ucf . . . and is losing to mighty delaware in the 3rd quarter????!!!!

TonyCane

86Cane, Miami is 126th out of all 126 teams? We’re not only ranked, but of course you mean we’re the best out of 126 teams, right? That’s what that stat means, right? Otherwise...that would mean something unthinkable!

We’re even off the charts at 3rd down conversations

VA Cane

LMBAO off at We have not Been Above Average Since So i guess the 2016(Final Ranking #20 out of 130 Teams) and 2017(Final Ranking #13 out of 130 Teams) Seasons didnt happen or you were living under a Rock Aero(And I know you were not because you were posting on here.

T Sully, love optimism, but neither one of those teams were Top 20 teams over rated by people who do not know football....they beat lousy teams for the most part in 2016 FSU was 23rd..beat them..beat over rated WVU in bowl....We beat ND in 17, best game we have played in a long time...and VT #13.......Clemson played half effort and beat us 38-3 and Whisky beat us again. Those rankings and seasons were smoke and mirrors....and a lot of luck....I like luck...like at BC in 2001 KD11 4 picks worse game ever for him the Ed Reed play...but those 16 and 17 teams were not what I call good....lucky played nobody... #s look above average only really good team we beat was ND......Clemson laughed at us ...they did not try...Clelin Ferrell my player said they felt sorry for UM....they took it ez cause we were very average...per their players and coaches.....I hate to be negative, but I have only been impressed vs ND since Fiesta Fiasco....and we played bad in Fiesta 03 and got ripped off. Wins against OK, TAMU etc were not really beating their strong teams....like solar said we are 7 - 5 8-4 lose bowl game most of the time....win 9 once and a while... its bad football....I have to win regularly when I coach and who I root for....My coached teams win... Raiders and Hurricanes the only teams in any sport I like have both been non performers...and play very similar brands of bad stupid undisciplined sloppy non fundamental football....and the coaching...well there is no coaching....sucks!

Third from the bottom on third down conversions, don't worry though the GD slurp squad will be here to defend the over-promoted-peter-principle-coordinator and Fake Lames both shortly! It's an off week after all . . .

VA Cane

61 today6 people.....still appraising and still coaching...kind of glad we had today off....they have lost on my birthday too many times

UVA-ND may be interesting....not sure....Reed Kellam #45 Hayden Mitchell #83 are my guys...very good kids.ND may beat them but I think they may play pretty good.
VT looked bad last night very bad....we should beat them....UVA Duke may be tough ones FSU is a rival so that will be challenging...I think we are right about what the great solar says....I am 61 and I do not see a NC in my lifetime....and my recent relatives parents 7 great aunts grandparents all have made 88 or older....long time to be middle of the road....

BigWindyCane

Sam Howell is showing Clemson that if you crowd the box and blitz me, I am going to burn you deep. Take notes Jarren! Deep throws can keep safeties guessing and the entire defense honest

Happy Birthday VA

Just came in and see UNC acting out on Clemson. The Tigers don't like being showed up lets see how this unfolds.

#TheNewCarolina tied with UNC at halftime 14-14.

UNC was 1-7 last season in the ACC?

Coaching matters

VA Cane

UVA looking good against ND at their place....I hate the Catholics, I hate Touchdown Jesus....what an immoral thing.....they are good...but hate them!!!!
\ND consistently gets calls....NCAA loves em!

BigWindyCane

Virginia winning at halftime at Notre Dame, 17-14.

Winning the ACC Coastal is looking like a very tough task

Clemson realizing how clutch Hunter Renfro was right now.
