Thank you Sir

Enos O line

“We moved the guys all around last week…(Freshman starter) Zion (Nelson) is doing a nice job. Being a left tackle and being 18 it’s hard. In a lot of other places, he might be on the scout team right now, getting big and trying to figure out how to go to class and everything. We think he’s improving daily. We have a lot of confidence in Zion.

The big thing is he’s gotten beat off the ball. We have to help him maybe with cadence and snap counts and things like that to help him. But certainly, when he’s been in trouble this year, it’s been because he’s been late off the ball and that’s about it. His technique and fundamentals are getting better. Again, he’s a good player.

But we kind of moved a lot of guys here, there and everywhere this week, but we’re pretty much back to where we were, and we feel good about the five moving forward. We’re just going to keep coaching them to play hard, give great toughness and get better every week. All of those guys again it’s a process, they’re getting better.

We used last week as a practice week. We went against our (first-team) defense a lot, a lot of live, good-on-good work, put these guys in tough situations and again it’s a process. They’re going to get better. We’ve got build this offense from inside out.”

There has been some suggestion that Enos is not helping the offensive linemen enough in the schemes and play calling. Some analysts have suggested that Miami use the shotgun more often if not exclusively. Enos squashed that idea during the press conference on Monday. Enos said they will always be balanced on offense.

That was in response to a question about Miami redshirt freshman quarterback Jarren Williams being under center or in the shotgun. Enos elaborated about the reasons behind his decisions to have Williams in the shotgun or under center.


The Miami offensive coordinator stated different plays work depending on being under center or in the gun. Whatever happens, going forward, Miami needs to figure out a way quickly what the best protection scheme is for Williams, The Hurricanes cannot afford another performance like Florida when Miami allowed 10 sacks.

Enos shotgun or under center

“I think there’s certain parts of your run game that are better underneath center rather than in the shotgun…I think there’s certain play-action passes that are better underneath center rather the shotgun as well. When you’re under center you never have to take your eyes off the configuration of the secondary.

You never have to have that moment or two where you have to have your eyes come down (to receive the ball) like in the shotgun. There’s certain things the quarterbacks are more comfortable having their eyes down the field the entire time.

And, there’s a lot of times those quarterbacks want to have the ball in their hands right now rather than waiting. When you’re underneath center you have it immediately in your hands. You have the laces already shaped in your hands and you’re able to make some quick throws out of it that way.

There’s benefits being under center and there’s certainly benefits from being in the shotgun. We will always continually evaluate what we’re doing out of both from the standpoint of a self-scout situation.”

"Let’s hope that Enos and the Miami Hurricanes offensive coaching staff does continue to evaluate if Williams is better under center or in the shotgun. It is an advantage to be multiple on either offense or defense."

solarcane

Enos
" When you’re under center you never have to take your eyes off the configuration of the secondary."

No sense looking at the pass rush that looks like its coming straight in from Cape Kennedy, the o line will make quick work of that...

"Gee this is sweet having the laces right where I like them while I lay here on my back."

Happy birthday to Mr. MILLER!

Baker took responsibility for the defensive breakdowns against Central Michigan during Monday’s press conference.


“I don’t think we necessarily had a great game plan going into it,” he said. “Credit Central Michigan. I thought they did a better job coaching than I did. So it starts with me. I think, looking at it, and really having a bye week and looking at the entire season, I think we identified multiple things that we can do better, especially as a play caller.

**********************************

After my earlier post calling for a "game plan" and where can we find one he says THIS? Not very reassuring to hear I tell you what.

BigWindyCane

Not sure why I feel this way but for some reason it just came to me this morning. We will see.

Posted by: 86Cane | September 30, 2019 at 10:24 AM

I hope your hunches are correct! VT should be a solid win. If the Canes then beat Virginia, then things start to look more promising this season for CMD and this team

86Cane

Happy Birthday Harry!

Sorry I haven't been more help with some of the issues we have discussed outside of UM and football. Just a busy guy trying to earn a living and run a blog.

Talk soon!

86Cane

BWC...just woke up feeling like things are about to change for the better with The Hurricanes. Let's hope my hunch is correct. That would be some very welcome relief around here.

QUESTION: What's a "game plan" and where do we find one?

Posted by: 86Cane | September 29, 2019 at 02:07 PM

It's down the street next to the o-tackles LOL

Happy Birthday Harry and early birthday Solar!

Harry Miller

Thanks for all the Happy Birthdays Guy's,
Solor if my wife was still here she would still be saying " I have 4 children just one of them is a 77 year old Juvenile delinquent". I still live the same type of life I did 25 years ago. I love the Canes, I love having fun and love the Lord.

Those are still around? I remember being 9-10 years old going there. Was a great place to see where all the girls with "cooties" hung out.

Go Canes!!

Happy birthday to the two....wisest men on this blog.

Many healthy and happy more to come!

solarcane

Thanks Go

That moment you set yourself free


"Frank Beamer’s run of eight conference titles (Big East and ACC) along with seven top-10 finishes between 1995 and 2010 was unprecedented and almost miraculous. It’s also, quite frankly, never going to be repeated in our lifetimes."

86Cane

Non-believers just scroll on past...

I just realized that my new good "feeling" about the Canes future must have come from my Faith, Hope and Love bible quote and prayer. Now I'm not totally sure if it means good things are going to happen for The Canes or just God granting me peace of mind over things I can't control. Or both?

solarcane

God granting me peace of mind over things I can't control.

Tom
he always has , like all of us you have just been too busy with material things to let him in.
Once you have that epiphany moment most of this haste and turmoil over things that do not matter will come into perspective.
great to see you growing buddy.

solarcane

My wife and I were volunteering our help to Catholic Charities, and the Red Cross the morning and months after Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida.

We carried water, diapers, canned goods, and all the usual supplies the Army loaded on my truck into the worst hit parts of Dade County.

We drove up to a blue tarp hanging from two broken trees.
Under the tarp were 15 or 20 families celebrating Mass.
That was the moment I knew God knew I knew.

solarcane

There is nothing like Fall in the mountains. A brisk 94 degrees right now, with severe drought warnings .

Solar...wait another week and you will like the weather MUCH better:

Remember when a three game winning streak against the Hokies was impressive?

Me neither

soup yea thanks,
No rain here in forever but record heat everyday for months.

Pope back for VT
I'm feeling about 45 all purpose yards.

JT4 will be running wide open most of the game right outside William's peripheral vision I reckon.

AeroCane

Question - why can’t we just play our best players - rather than playing games; why is patchen playing over Rousseau and hill? Maybe we win both or at least one of our losses if they are playing vs patchen;
Now he’s talking about how great bolden is BUT he says ‘can he tackle’ etc - just play these guys (we already know knowles and carter are not cutting it)
What I’m saying is I want to see the best most exciting players playing who give us the best chance to win - I’ve seen nothing in patchen, knowles or carter that show that they should be playing more than potential superstars
I’m also going to say (and I’ve said this numerous times before) that as much as we like deejay and camron, lingard is the real deal and we need to play him or he will be starting at Georgia or bama in a yr or 2

You get it! Lol

solarcane

Aero,
Carter was one of my favorite players coming out of high school, then he looked great on special teams.
Now he looks confused with coverage and his tackling seems to get more sketchy every game.

Lingard goes to Georgia or Wisconsin he would thrive. Here he is just rotting on the bench.

I love Mallory's passion for being a Cane but he is instant death at the worst possible moment. Playmaker's kid doesn't get many snaps?

BigWindyCane

If the Canes go on a roll, I will point to the post by Soup yesterday (and maybe some Divine intervention) that marked the turning point in this season.

Otherwise, I pray God brings me peace too because I predict I will be one angry junk yard dog if the Canes don’t win the Coastal Division

Lmbo!!

solarcane

Watching Jalen Hurts never get under center stay back in shotgun and just shred. Even against a real defense he would be a bad boy.
Enos needs to leave Williams back there til we get an O line.

Terrance Sullivan

Agreed Solar.

DallasTX Cane

Mr. Miller & Mr. Solar: Happy Birthday Young Men!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young

Damn, wish I could write lyrics like that!

solarcane

Thanks a bunch DTX
You must have have missed the post where I said I thought you were a ghostwriter for Bob Dylan lol

DallasTX Cane

Solar - I saw that post. I was “subtly” referencing it. lol
