Just saying I doubt laziness was a factor in his decision.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | September 26, 2019 at 03:01 PM

Disagree, laziness was a factor, but I can see your point. And we paid how much to Temple to get him? We couldn't have hired somebody awesome for that? And Richt - Georgia fires him and we hire him? Whose turn is it to watch Blake James. I guess no one at the school

alpine

regarding manny:
- 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

- 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

- he had a texas mess-up; but came here and lit up our defense quickly!

- the timeline regarding how quick he can make the change from excellent d-coordinator to above average coach; then continue to progress on towards good, excellent, elite will be the question
. . . will we see VERY clear progress, not just each year, but within each year?
- the players seem to like him ... will the whole team eventually play their hearts out for him in the same way the D seemed to do the last couple years?

Terrance Sullivan

Go Canes Cryst wasn't hired from within he was the Pitt Head Coach! But all others Spot On.

CGNC

TSully - forgot about Eichorst. I think I got them mixed up - ok, forget twins, triplets. I dislike them all. They are dead to me LOL.

Alpine - Hocutt was in the middle of the Nevin Shapiro scandal - so, he was very involved, with money

Terrance Sullivan

Alpine Correct!

Go Canes!!

Clemson-Dabo iired from within
LSU-Ogregon hired from within
Oklahoma-RIley hired from within
Ohio State-Day hired from within
Wisconsin-Chryst hired from within

Go Canes!!

James just did what 5 of the Top 8 teams did the facing a similar situation. They elevated the assistant which best represented their identity.

For three straight seasons Manny has fielded a quality, hard nosed, tough defense that has excelled.

Not saying it was a good or bad decision, only time will tell that. Just saying I doubt laziness was a factor in his decision.

alpine

i believe (if i remember right) that we jammed with blake, because he was supposedly excellent at the money & bureacracy stuff (bringing in the donations/gifts and getting important structures built)
. . . the 2 before him (eichhorst & hocutt) didn't seem to be all that good at anything . . . though we did get our current bb coaches; that's worth a point or two

Terrance Sullivan

Great post

CGNC

TSully - LOL, Blake James seemed better at first because we got rid of Hocutt who was another loser AD. We didn't know they were twins LOL. It happens.

But jeee-zee the money Miami makes with the ACC and we can't hire a decent established coaching staff????? I really dislike Blake James now. I wish Manny all the best, but I am not sold. Waiting to see as is everyone.

AeroCane

Go
Blake is lazy because he didn’t do much of a true search before hiring richt, and obviously did no search before hiring manny. If he hired either after a thorough search, then I wouldn’t call him lazy; simply incompetent LOL

Terrance Sullivan

As Far As CMD is concerned I hope My and others Fears about him being the Next Randy/Al Type Coach are not True that he grows from this. But at this time I see A Highly Undisciplined Poorly Coached Team with a lack of leadership from the Head Coach down to the supposed Team Leaders! This upcoming stretch of 6 ACC Conference Games of VT, UVA, GT, @Pitt, @FSU, UL from October 5th Through November 9th will tell the tale of this season. Buckle Up Canes Family!

Go Canes!!

Curious why Blake James is lazy.

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. Cut The Foolishness Out Bro! Trying To compare Randy/Al 7-6 Average Yearly Teams to Mark 9-4 Average Yearly Teams are comical on here. They are not the same and stop trying to keep typing and saying that foolishness. Randy and Al Teams usually were complete afterthoughts that had 1 Good Year in a 4 Year Cycle and 1 losing Season in their 4 Year Cycle, Mark had 2 Good Teams in his 3 Year Cycle and 1 other Winning Season(even though extremely mediocre. I love this Blog to no end but some of the over the top mindless takes are beyond hysterical its bordering on Sad.

Terrance Sullivan

LOL we were coming off a National Championship Season and Jimmy was not on the Staff so Throw that comparison out Apples to Oranges U can also throw out The Ericson Comparison he was also someone who was not on the Staff previously Thats also Apples to Oranges the 2 Fair Comparisons are Coker who was the OC for All of Butch Tenure Here and Shannon who was DC for all of Coker Tenure Here. So The JJ, DE, BD, AG comparisons do not apply to MD only LC and RS!

86Cane

Also remember that as an independent in 1984 Johnson and Miami beat pre-season #1 Auburn in the kickoff classic, beat #17 Florida, beat #16 Notre Dame. They lost to #14 Michigan, #15 FSU and #10 BC.

They lost by 2 points to #14 UCLA in the Fiesta Bowl and finished the season ranked #18 averaging 30 PPG and giving up 24 PPG.

Let's put expectations aside, keep an open mind and see where we end up in December. Then a fair assessment can be made by all.

86Cane

Point is, not sure what Manny's going to end up being.

Only know it's too soon to know for sure.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | September 26, 2019 at 06:34 AM

To be fair this is a valid point and needs honest consideration.

And as I have pointed out previously Jimmy was handcuffed his first year by being forced to keep two major assistants (OC and DC) who wanted the job, didn't get it and sabotaged the season either directly or indirectly. Manny does not have that same scenario.

We ALL want Manny to succeed.

We ALL thought he would succeed.

And the same could be said for Randy Shannon and Mark Richt, but we know how that turned out.

Manny was received by the fans in a very positive and accepting manner. Now he has to fight his way through this season and earn our respect, trust and support while winning enough to recruit for the future.

His stock rose slightly in the strong effort against the Gators but dropped significantly in the loss to UNC a team we had TWO WEEKS to prepare for and should have beaten. His stock rose once again after whalloping BCC but then sunk after the putrid perfromance against CMU.

He will rightly be judged game to game and over the entire season when it ends. The fans would be wise to withold final judgement until the season is over and the "big picture" can be evaluated.

But it is right and just to criticize specific areas of the team and coaching when their performance extremely poor or unacceptable.

I believe that most reasonable and rational fans here would agree that the OL, special teams, 3rd and fourth down defense, 3rd down offense and penalities/discipline are so far unacceptable.

So it is really this simple: Manny needs to fix some, most or all of these areas if they are to win more games, please the fans and attract the recruits. Time will tell.

AeroCane

Go
Jimmy had HC experience and had beaten mighty Oklahoma as a coach at osu; we knew it would take a year or so for him to get going; no one was panicking however unhappy; Butch was in a terrible situation and we couldn’t do anything about it; Coker took over maybe the most talent on a college team ever and ended up destroying the U; we’ve never been above average since! So I’m saying is you can twist the facts anyway you want, but I’m going to see them realistically while you and some others always twist them to your liking JMO
My concern with manny - no HC experience and no true pedigree; Kirby at Georgia had no HC experience but had a pedigree, and was trained by saben

alpine

go is back!
good post

Go Canes!!


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


His first season here Jimmy blew the biggest lead in NCAA history, 31-0 to Maryland at halftime and lost the Hail Flutie BACK TO BACK weeks. He also got blown out 38-3 by FSU.

Butch was 0-10 against FSU and VT his first five seasons and was lucky to survive that 5-6 season.

They went on to greatness.

Larry Coker went undefeated for nearly two straight seasons. Same with Erickson. Both those coaches won titles then left our programs in shambles..

Point is, not sure what Manny's going to end up being.

Only know it's too soon to know for sure.

Jmo...

fantastic story; fantastic person ... will allow you to quit circling all the worst possibilities of where the canes' season/'cruiting/future will end up:

“I didn’t go to Poland as a black person, a white person or a Jewish person,” he explains. “I went as a human being. We get too hung up on all the labels we put on people. We should want all people to care about our issues, not just people who look like us. We are all human, and we need to pay attention to the other genocides taking place in Rwanda, Bosnia and Cambodia.” RAY ALLEN!

Sad thinking what good fans we are on here and all over the country to endure the mediocre product that the University of Miami has spoon fed us for over a decade.

They take for granted a new coach every 4 years entitles them to a complete do over.They expect the next generation of Cane fans to go along for the ride just like every Miami fan before them did.

I used to laugh at the fans that said we should boycott the games.
I will always be a Miami fan but a realistic fan. We are not going anywhere, anytime.

CGNC

Tsully, respectfully agree to disagree. Not bashing "the woman", lmao I am a woman. Or saying she tried to kill the program. But she changed the culture, or should I say the culture changed while she was President. We joined the ACC for more $$$ is what I am guessing. At least now we are spending $$ on coaching, now we need to just find someone to hire the right ones, our current President needs to fire Blake James.


Terrance Sullivan

If Donna Shalala was trying to kill the Program She wouldn't along. With Paul Dee the AD at the Time wouldn't have let us Join The ACC we would have stayed in the Big East and be in the AAC getting 1/10 of the Revenue of The ACC and Power 5 Conferences. I know it's a great narrative but False. BTW I guess Our Current President Gets A Pass as well. Or is we just bash the Woman. Because It's Funny That The Men President Because they didn't care about The Athletic Program either especially Tad Foote but To each their Own.

Herbieibis

Coker could get 5 star players but he turned them into 3 star flame outs.
If our offense is auditioning for future players then we're are stuck forever with under the radar cruits and the basic ACC record of 7-5 for eternity.
SPaaaaaRED Danny! WE DO NOT HAVE THE OH LINE PERSONELL TO RUN A PRO STYLE. Maybe inside the 10 or anywhere we have a yard or less and this is once I. A while.
The QB is fine. Least he ain't color blind. With that line it's a wonder, he isn't on IR.

CGNC

Happy to hear about Don Soldinger. I think with bringing him in, Manny knows he needs help there which is a positive. He also knows that not everyone is giving it 100% which he is trying to fix. Hopefully he is successful.

As far as joining a lower conference 10 years ago, the problem was that Donna Shasha was dismantling and changing the culture...and trying to not make it look like that.

solarcane

Pale Horse Dude,OGV,Soup,Terrence and many others might be right about Manny being in over his head as HC at the moment.

Thinking how Jimmy Johnson would run the guys till after dark for dogging a practice without explaining to the press the psychology involved in puking your guts out

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

Williams seems to wait til a receiver is completely open before he releases the ball, then he gets dumped. Enos is supposed to be able to fix that.

Posted by: solarcane | September 25, 2019 at 03:04 PM

I agree. Solar, I am pretty sure I have said this on this blog before, although I like Jarren's potential, it is just potential at this point. I agree that Jarren has to see a receiver is open before he throws the ball. That accounts for his struggles on getting sacked and lack of a deep ball. Enos has designed an offense with simple reads and throws, and I believe that accounts for his impressive completion percentage.

I have seen JT4 open deep, but Jarren either doesn't throw it, doesn't see JT4 open until he is out of range or throws it short.

Jarren hasn't connected with JT4 on a deep pass. The one deep pass he connected with against BCC with Pope was a little short and should have been a long TD, not just a long completion. Jarren threw it late and short.

Enos may have to design some deep routes to do what his short routes do, so the WR can break across the QB's vision. Enos needs to rely on RPOs and spread until this offensive line and Jarren develop more. That is what good coaches do - play to his team's strengths and avoid your weaknesses.

Perry has more arm talent and more elusiveness in the pocket than Jarren, but Perry was also more turnover prone, inaccurate, and just couldn't read simple defenses last year. It seems Perry would be more accurate under Enos, but Enos didn't want to risk his job by relying on Perry again.

Jarren's interviews haven't impressed me. His "step on their throats" comments leave much to be desired when the Canes play the way they did against CMU.

I frankly have reserved judgment on Jarren until I see him win more. Jarren is the first UM QB to throw his first 100 passes without an INT. Jarren also might be one of the first (or few) UM QBs to start his career 0-2 as a starter. If the Canes leave this homestand and head to Pitt at 5-2, then I will feel better about Jarren moving forward. With the heart of the ACC schedule coming up, Jarren will have to hit those deep throws and trust his WRs if the Canes are going to win.

Aero,
This might be the poorest o line ever at the U. With Williams inability to split second decide to tuck and run or throw the ball away they add up to a 98th ranked qb.
Watch a couple of clips of Marino at Pitt or later with the Dolphins, he knew instantly if a play wasn't there.

Williams seems to wait til a receiver is completely open before he releases the ball, then he gets dumped. Enos is supposed to be able to fix that.

AeroCane

Jarren has done NOTHING to take control of the team and games - he is a very average ‘game manager’ and nothing more. I’d rather have a guy sling it around, throw an interception here and there, but get us TD’s! I would bet only GO and BigWindy have the confidence that he could actually drive us down and score a winning TD. I doubt it - if yes, we be 4-0 albeit a very ugly 4-0. JMO

iraqi: what you said makes sense

go: agree about mccloud; been hoping (but not really expecting) it would go down that way

- his passing is way better than the low bar set by rosier

We should have moved to the FCS division 10 years ago. Played competition at the level we could compete for championships, beat a big school once in awhile,then eventually move back into the big league.

When you see Appalachian State teams and fans you see a program that is happy to be competive, loves its team, can play just about anyone even on a good day.

We are continuously over rated, under coached and out played by the Appalachian States of the world.

At least Fake Lames still is employed to keep the football team dumpster fire roaring with fuel from his shit hires of unqualified losers though so you can parrot his talking points on here, after we were so close to missing out on that until the promotion from within off a staff that never won shit got done due to Fake Lames' incompetence and yes-man sniveling hiring process playing out yet again.

How many exciting replays did that game get stopped for that day Noel? Think this was the 2013(???) Chokie game during which they kept fumbling away center/QB exchanges and afterwards your usual gang of slurpers wanted everyone to leave the shitty coaching staff alone for a week due to the other team's incompetence being a 'good' sign for the dumpster fire football program snuffing out the problem. It wasn't and the staff continues to flounder all this time later, no wonder I stopped spending money on the product years ago! But who needs to remember that when GD says fatso's dead to him now like GD should earn a belly rub from Fake Lames for it by announcing it here when everyone laughs at GD for his pom pom waving being transparently pathetic? With 'fans' like that, who needs a coaching search that extends past the length of the hallway? At least if you don't care about empty seats, who cares?

It all starts with coaching. I am not going to bet my house on it, but I hope 🤞 our coaches find a way to maximize our players’ strengths and minimize their weaknesses so they aren’t exposed. That’s has been the hallmark of good coaching since the sport of football was created.

I heard CMD brought in former Canes RB/ST Coach Soldinger to help consult on special teams issues. I hope that is true! It’s not a cure-all, but it’s a start

I had high expectations for this year as everyone
Knows, it hasn't worked out at all. It.s time to sit back and see how it turns out in the end.
Hopefully the end is better then the start. Can't be any worse. Wait maybe it can be if we don't start improving.
I am to old for this crap, but I will keep watching and hoping for the best. You never know.

I just want to say my granddaughter is an elite softball player and plays for Antioch Senior High
School. She Had her jersey entered into the Antioch Hall of Fame as a junior this past year.
Bailee holds a 4.05 Grade point average. Travels all over the west coast playing for her elite team. Has a great chance for a scholarship. I started showing her how to throw like a boy when she was 4 years old and to get the bat on the ball. Bailee is now a starting pitcher and second baseman. Leads the team in most hitting categorizes and most of all is a Christian girl with high standards. I can't be more proud of Her.

Oh" tom I still need to talk to you,

Soup

Got two new super fishing kayaks with aluminum mesh seats sitting way up for all day comfort.
Like sitting in a canvas camp chair.

Found a lake that is shallow only about 5 to 10 feet 75%, then about 25% 25 deep feet and about 400 across acres, easy access.
Plenty of structure but soft bottom with no hangups hardly.
Plenty of dumb bass with a few arrogant ones lurking arount.

I think we have ALL been collectively holding our breath for 14 years or so. Time to exhale.

The Canes coaches have a bye week heading into the ACC schedule, and they have four games of film to assess what talent that they have.

On offense, it is pretty obvious that Nelson and Clark are not ready to start at OL at the University of Miami. Starting Clark has really a head-scratcher for me. I have seen him miss too many blocks both in the run game and in the passing game for me to understand.

I don't like criticizing players, but I have to also wonder why the coaches would start them?

Under Mark Richt, Al Golden and Randy Shannon, there were never a two OLs who so clearly didn't belong. At least Nelson can run block from time-to-time, but he really is probably the worst pass blocking LT in the ACC, and definitely the weakest pass-blocking LT for the Canes in the last three decades. It is frankly embarrassing.

Either the Canes need to play someone on the bench, or drastically change its game plan.

Hopefully, our coaches have seen that the Canes OL (namely Clark and Nelson) will not allow the Canes to run certain pro style concepts consistently.

As several of you have said, the Canes MUST go to the spread and RPO, and design their entire offense around those concepts.

They have two weeks to work on it.

Yea CGNC! It’s like seen ghosts from a bad era.
We got 3 years of manny, hate it or love it. Let’s hope he delivers.
Here’s a thought: what if we get Urban Myer and the same shit happens?
Just a thought!

CGNC

great article. It did give me the creeps seeing some of those coaches though. Ugh.
