Love the article!
So true!
Wish the admin would read it AND actually care!

PS I said this 2 yrs ago but I’ll say it again:
The admin should care: when my daughter was applying to law schools, the dean at um law called Shelly and told her their apps had over doubled vs the norm after we beat notre Dame! If that doesn’t say ‘football matters’, what does

Best comment to the above video -

"un-horseman like conduct"

Go Canes!!

We are actually a FG kicker away from being 7-0. But at the same time we are also a few plays from being 1-6.

We've had a 4th quarter lead in all seven games this season yet we are somehow 3-4.

I want to put it all on Manny, but there have been some really basic plays botched by players that literally cost us games that you can't really blame on coaching.

Very strange, very frustrating season.


Old Skool

two thumbs up on the article

orange 'n green in the vein

Once the over-promoted peter principle ticket distributor and his buddy the over-promoted peter principle coordinator are fired and left in shame on an airport tarmac, regional or otherwise, the healing can begin.

The most potential filled jobs are places that used to be players on the national championship scene that had things go wrong, because you can come in, get what used to be back in order and renew the potential to new levels of success. But not with this combination moronic bots, the useless Fake Lames and his shitty talking points like GD still puts out weekly. Amazing how GD just can't ever figure it out but wants credit for after the fact disavowals, so stunning and brave that GD is and always the last to know.

Enjoying the Ride

Anyone heading to Pittsburgh?

Fact is stranger than fiction. And yes, it has been a strange and frustrating season.

Serious question:
If we lose the next 2 (pitt and FSU) by a combined score of 80- 17 (yes I think we make 1 field goal) does manny get canned?

Great Article! Loved It!

Is that what Kate said?

Aero reading Blake James comments I think Manny is a made man. He is untouchable for three years at least.
Jno

Probably not. After all, according to the lexicon of losercoachspeak, we just started "re-building" the program. And "it takes time" to "change the culture".

If, however, we also lose to FIU _______________ [you can fill in the blank].

Report says FSU has started a new coach search. This big name [Urban Meyer] is high on the list.

The Florida State Seminoles are coming off a 22-20 loss to Wake Forest, which dropped FSU to 3-4 this season and 8-11 under head coach Willie Taggart.

While Taggart told reporters Monday that the team was one play away from winning three of the four games they’ve lost this year, the results so far haven’t helped him off the coaching hot seat.

According to Football Scoop, FSU has started talking with donors about looking for a new coach, instead of giving Taggart, in his second season, another year at his dream job.

The outlet reported FSU is aiming for Urban Meyer to replace Taggart.

https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/article236517083.html

Perhaps, this is a harbinger of things to come at UM. Given our "cracker-jack" AD, don't be surpised if UM fires ex-Temple head coach Manny Diaz and hires ex-FSU head coach, Willie Taggart. Or maybe we'll just keep Manny on the job to go "toe-to-toe" with a "big name" head coach at FSU such as Urban Meyer (or whomever).

The new "305" Turnover Chain may the source of all the trouble this year at The New Miami. It's bad mojo! CMD needs to revert back to the "original" chain. IT WAS A WINNER. This is MIAMI. "We don't need no loser bling."

86Cane

Aero don't go there.

It would be just as easy to say if the Canes beat Pitt and FSU by a combined score of 80-17 will all be forgiven? It works both ways, don't look for bad that doesn't already exist. Wait for it, it will probably find you anyway without you wishing it forward.

solarcane

sully,
Thanks!

Where have we heard that before?

I don't think Meyer's health is strong enough for a complete overhaul of a broken program.
When you see him speak on TV he looks anemic.

More realistic FSU hire

Sept 2019
Steve Spurrier realizes that Mike Leach is an elite coaching prospect, and he would like it if he stayed away from Spurrier’s former school’s rival.

“Somebody’s going to hire Mike Leach soon. Let’s just hope it isn’t FSU.”

Also with the first-team defense on Saturday was sophomore cornerback Al Blades Jr. DJ Ivey, who gave up two touchdowns on Saturday, one on a fake punt, was with the second team. Junior safety Amari Carter also was with the second team as Gurvan Hall and Robert Knowles lined up with the first team.

I agree. What you're saying is true. For a number of reasons the probability is small that FSU will hire Urban Meyer.
But the probability is even smaller that FSU will hire someone with NO head coaching experience to replace Willie Taggart.
And the probability is ZERO that FSU would ever consider paying a school like TEMPLE $4 million (yikes!) to enable that school's new head coach to break his contract to take the "dream job" in Tallahassee.

I agree! I always liked the original turnover chain, and was never a fan of the others. I am also not a fan of the TD rings, but that is another story.

Imagine an alternative reality where we hired Mike Leach and kept Manny as DC...

Nice job Solar on the article!

In college football though things can turn around rather quickly with the right ingredients. Al Golden was stubborn and would not change his defense, team went down the tank and he was fired. Mark Right would not change his offense, give up play calling or fire his son and off he went. In the middle of that was the Nevin Shapiro scandal, a couple of ill-timed contract extensions (thanks Blake James).

Two stubborn men and a scam artist. Had we made the right hires, things might have been different - but we still would have had to deal with Nevin-gate.

The BOT need to figure out how to get a competent AD that knows football and can hire the right person that will in turn, hire the right people. And for the love of Pete, pay attention to special teams and the O-line.

I will remain optimistic and cheer for the Canes, but am not renewing season tix next year. Keep giving them your money and they will continue to spend it unwisely.

solarcane

Mike Leach and JJ are friends, Johnson might give The Pirate a heads up and tell him the Miami job is an open sore and the fan base thinks the average players are elite.

Leach would come as much to dick with the fans as he would to hang 40 points a game on every Coastal division team.

I think Manny hangs around for three years and upsets the fans constantly and a ranked team once in awhile.

CGNC

Aero - good info on the interest in the school after we beat Notre Dame. I did not know that.

Meanwhile in Pennsylvania.....Temple is 5-2

CGNC

BTW - Urban Meyer's name is being talked about for the Dallas Cowboys LOL

last thing - loved the pics but the first one especially because it has some formers - Canesteeler and Canez1 as well as Solar. The other guy I don't recall?

Trouble is neither Leach or Manny are A-1 recruiters and Leach's teams can't play DEE but at least we would have the Spread but Oh wait, shyt I forgot, we can't recruit Oh linemen!

How do u take most 4 and 5 star players and turn them into 3's, go to DA U!
How do u become better pro players than college players coming from DA U, pay them Money.

solarcane

Herb,
how about Mario C. from Oregon as HC here? Lot of fans of Mario on the blog. He has the Ducks playing great and he can recruit anywhere. I think Oregon had a a top 10 class didn't they?

Herbieibis

Yes.
We start out it seems every year at one or two and then we just keep falling but of course we have to lead the nation In 4 star decomittments in the last 3 years.
David comes in at over 9 mill. in coaching salary.

At 77 years old I have seen it all. Way back in the 50's we were just hoping to be ranked in the top 25 once in a while. Then we were hoping for a top 10 once in awhile. Then along came Howard Schenneberger and promised a National Championship within 5 years.In 1983 he kept that promise, as underdogs we beat Nebraska to win our first National Championship. Then we moved on to Jimmy Johnson and the swagger years started. In all We won 5 National Championships becoming one of the most decorated football teams in NCAA history along with the best college football team ever in 2001.

Know we are back where we were 40 years ago.
Hoping to be in the top 25 rankings.

I don't think I have another 40 years years left in me to possibly see another Championship or even a top 5 ranking. Hell, I should be happy
I got to see it once. From the bottom to the top back to the bottom.

Hey who knows, I have another 10 years in me, God willing.

Pat Bethel on why Manny is the best coach.

(think about General Custer's men sitting around the campfire talking about their leader right before their big game at the Little Big Horn)

“He just is,” he said. “He’s a guy you’ve got to be around. He brings the same energy every day. He knows how to run the system. He knows how to coach. He knows exactly what he’s doing, so we trust him fully, and we’re all in for him.”
Smh

And for the love of Pete, pay attention to special teams and the O-line.

Posted by: CGNC | October 22, 2019 at 03:14 PM

I know Pete, he is a good friend of mine, and yes he does love him some OL and Special Teams. I'll give him a call and see if he is available.
