NEW BLOG IS UP!

TonyCane

We will be bowl eligible. Worst case scenario is a 6 win season, presuming non offensive improvement. I have faith that this staff will continue To improve.

solarcane

Tony,
Yea Understand what you are saying, and I know it is a process.

It is hard to go from expecting to win the Coastal every year to wondering if we are going to be bowl eligible.

AeroCane

Tony - good point
However, Herman has HC history and success - manny - nothing. Now this doesn’t mean he won’t become the next Dabo, etc but as Go says, time will tell!

TonyCane

Solar, that’s the culture that Manny is trying toninstill. It took Tom Herman 16 games here at Texas before his culture change began to taken root.

AeroCane

Solar - lol
I didn’t include them because I think we no chance of beating them AT THIS TIME. Hopefully I’m dead wrong on all accounts and manny And staff can suddenly recruit and coach (at least try to do 1 of the 2)

solarcane

However, I have absolutely no faith that we will beat VT, VA,FSU, Pitt
They need to prove themselves to me before I start having any hope at this time

Posted by: AeroCane | September 28, 2019 at 08:14 PM

Aero thrown in Duke and I'm right there with you.

solarcane

Ohio state guys play every down like the game depends on it.

TonyCane

Plane engines warming, printing presses churning away...Dabo in danger!

Go Canes!!

Remember when Scott Frost was a thing?

Good times.

Basura

Yup, we gotta just sit back, watch and have no expectations for this year or next.

AeroCane

Basura - correct on all accounts
However, I have absolutely no faith that we will beat VT, VA,FSU, Pitt
They need to prove themselves to me before I start having any hope at this time

More importantly for the Canes though, an ACC loss for a Coastal Division opponent that beat the Canes. The Canes still theoretically control their destiny to the ACC championship game

Posted by: BigWindyCane | September 28, 2019 at 07:35 PM

No they don’t. UNC still would have to lose again (they will). The WF loss was very strangely a non-conference loss.

BigWindyCane

UNC played Clemson close. The coaches had a great game plan and the players were prepared. Showed future Clemson opponents that they are vulnerable.

More importantly for the Canes though, an ACC loss for a Coastal Division opponent that beat the Canes. The Canes still theoretically control their destiny to the ACC championship game

solarcane

And just like that

VA Cane

UM vs Clemson 50-0...UNC a chance to win!!!!

VA Cane

UVA OL looks like UM OL they have given up 7 sacks, a scoop and score and a long return on another fumble. UVA is good.....but not real good. They are shell shocked. ND is pretty good....8 sacks....a lot of them are because of good coverage down field....ND is a Top 10 team.....UVA is in the Top 30....low rank....Us? Top 60 or so....not real good.....I look at us as 0-2 as we beat some kindergarten teams.....Sad program here now

Clemson would have us down 50-0.....like I said Clelin told me UM was so average so unorganized so sad....he told me Dabo asked them to go ez on UM as CMR is a good guy....true story!!!!

BigWindyCane

Good question Duval.

Speaking of good coaching, Appalachian State is 3-0. Glad we played Central Michigan and not them last week.

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.

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

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....

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!

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

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.

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.

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

Posted by: HawaiiCane | September 27, 2019 at 03:04 PM

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.

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

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.

Posted by: solarcane | September 27, 2019 at 05:49 PM

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.

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.

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.

Gin & Tonic

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?

solarcane

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.

2009
3-1
Give up more points than you score

TonyCane

I read Manny explaining why his Canes can't score points...seems they are just inherently lazy,something he might have noticed last July and fixed by season's start?

“Human inertia is to be average and mediocre. That current and that gravitational pull sucks you down every day. And so it just doesn’t happen where all of a sudden everyone is like, ‘I’m going to come in here and bring my best every day.’ That is quite literally why they call us coach — to make sure that it happens
Manny Diaz

Posted by: solarcane | September 25, 2019 at 08:01 PM

IMO it's just spin. Manny and staff know that the offensive line is BY FAR the weakest area on the team, and barring a change in offensive scheme there's not much that can be changed on that. Perhaps he and Enos underestimated how bad the unit was.

I think he's hoping to inspire the rest of the team to raise their contributions to 110%. Not that the rest of the team is bad, but by going all out they might mask - a little bit - the glaring, enormous weakness on the offensive line.

DTX,
That fear of being embarrassed by not
doing what is obvious is a ballbuster you are spot on.
Remember when we were above hiring Chris Peterson because we were Canes and we didn't need any trick play offense?

What did he do, win like coach of the year 3 times put Boise State on the map, go out to Washington and turn them around.
While we flushed millions of coaching dollars down the drain.

The only people that prosper by our coaching hires are the guys that make the airplane banners at the sign shop.

DallasTX Cane

Good point Solar. It all starts with the OL. Skill players can’t do jack crap when the line sux. The UM coach that solves our OL puzzle (why does the CANE OL ALWAYS suk arse?!?) will enjoy great success. An average OL puts us in the top 10-15 given our skill position talent and above age D. A good OL makes us dangerous against ALL competition. A great OL means we compete with the bamas & clemsons.

DallasTX Cane

I think a better term for our hiring “process” than laziness is fear. We were surprised by Richt’s seemingly spur of the moment decision and imo the decision to hire Manny without even the pretense of a search was due to fear that we had the “next big thing” young superstar coach right under our nose and let him get away. Fear of that potential embarrassment (plus the embarrassment of being possibly publicly turned down by other high profile candidates) was the driver for our actions.

LOL! The fans need to be rewarded with good football.

Herbie, Donnie Soldinger is supposed to now be helping on special teams and with the running backs. I heard it here so it must be true :-)

Herbieibis

Fellas, ain't no use In working selves up into a lather about Manny. He's going to be here at least 3 years, unless we absolutely fall completely apart.
Young team that has growing pains.
The Herb,however, is not so sure about Patke and Baker.
No we don't have a Willis up front and we have basically a new secondary, aside from Bandy. Baker picks the worst times to not be aggressive, like 3rd down.
The special teams gig was dumped into Patke's lap. It finally looks like we have a punter but our kicker is sucking. He can't kick for Baxa and he can't field punts for Thomas and he can't help these pups taking bad tackling angles during the game. The players have to take some of this. We should of hired a true S.T. coach.
Manny is trying to use the path that Butch took.
Not the exact blue print but close. Until we start being dominate, he will have to be be Butchesq in recruiting. Better be a good evaluator because until these struggles abate, we are going to keep losing a lot of the big name kids in that 100 mile radius. We start out recruiting in the top 5 and after an avalanche of decomits we end up hovering in the high teens.
Enos has got to pull the petticoat off and start Jacki g the ball down the field and as I have repeated SPaaaaaRED!
Article I read about all the teams In the SEC going to the spread, including Bama and LSU, who have been grinding teams in the past. We don't need to be last to the party Manny. Don't want to be like Goldie and hold onto the worst decord. We have had in Deno. Nothing wrong with being multiple, IF u have the players to run. We don't.

2. I like this. I read it and had to admit it.

Agreed

VT 2.5 Favorite at home vs Duke.
Duke lost all three of their starting wide receivers this year.
I think this is a Friday night game but too lazy to look it up

Tarheels 26 point underdog to Clemson

This is why our fickle fans need to show up to the games! I really do think our fans hurt recruiting.

I think this game against VT is the most important game all season. If Miami can come out and dominate behind hopefully a great crowd at the rock, then I think Miami will get the needed confidence this team needs badly.

1. i'm not so sure anymore about how successful his short-term is gonna be, though at least 60% of me still thinks we'll run this thing or lose only to pitt

2. i do find myself still believing in manny as a teachable workaholic; humble enough to keep looking in the mirror and trying to find answers
and not blindly loyal in the way that allows a d'no or a richt-as-play-caller to screw things up . . . i think he takes winning too seriously
