TheWordFromTheHerb

The problems are many as to why we fell off the mountain and can't seem to get back up. Mud, we get close and start sliding back. I consistency, that's a good one from all the coaching hires and blunders. Player development, that's a big one. The kids that make it to the pros actually play better there than at DA U.
To The Herb, is we just flat out got left behind. Look around college football at the offensive explosions going on and yet we still hold onto the pro style. We don't have the Qb's to run it and dam sure don't have the offensive line to run it and one sorry coach after another keeps that as our base offense. We have been behind forever with facilities but thanks to Richt at least that was taken care of. Probably will never have their own stadium, which does hurt.
So. Florida talent isn't what it used to be or maybe it's just the ones we get. We struggle to get linemen on either side of the ball (quality). We struggle year in and year out to fill certain positions. Look at our LB situation this year and who will play next year. So what if McCloud comes back next year, he's no more than average. If this is a rebuild start playing a bunch of players and give them game reps. Maybe when it quits raining misfortune, bad decisions and choking on our azz maybe then the mud will dry up and we can climb back to the top, that is if we can learn to get out of our own way.

Go Canes!!

Funny thing is that all the greats come back to talk to and coach up the newbies in the off-season and it makes no difference anymore.

Head coaches feel obliged to talk to JJ in the Keys. It doesn't matter anymore.

The truth seems to be that those "Good Old Days" are gone forever, college football passed us by while we were not looking and now we can only look in the rear view mirror.

There are no throwaway seasons, only throwaway hires and throwaway AD's, which Miami is flush with right now . . .

roach I think Tate gets back in the portal too if he doesn't play meaningful snaps this week.

Manny says Tate loves Miami, and Lingard does too. I think they both like playing football more.

Beg to differ VA re: Fiesta Bowl loss. That was a typical “Glory Era” loss - Canes 10x more talented than opponent and didn’t properly prepare or take the opponent seriously. Think ‘86 Fiesta Bowl (maybe it’s just a fiesta thing?) or any one of 1/2 dozen games in that era where Cane hype, swag, over-confidence, etc. proved self-delusional. Canes have always brought the circus but when the circus becomes bigger than the game, the game has a way of humbling The U.

Totally agree on the 05 Sugar Bowl. Even after the fiesta, Canes were the big bad boys of college ball. That game so completely punctured our image of invincibility like a steak knife to a balloon that no one, Canes included, believed in our Swag afterward.

roachcane77

Yup, Hightower in the transfer portal. And so it begins...

Non-throwing shoulder. Numb that thing up and grin and bear it. If the team dares to get caught looking ahead Saturday, Fake Lames and his over-promotoed peter principle coordinator buddy should both be left fired in shame on the Pittsburgh airport tarmac.

Get well CMR a very good man!!!

solarcane

Enos on Perry

“Again, it’s tough to criticize a guy too much that has a separated shoulder and comes back into the game. I can’t express enough the admiration that I have for his courage and his competitiveness and toughness. I’ve not seen that very much in my career— a guy that went through the hit he went through, the injury that he had, and there he was playing.

solarcane

Perry has a separated left shoulder is day to day.

We face the best pass rush in college football next.
We have a sloth and a cripple at qb and a very healthy Tate.

Posted by: UMike | October 21, 2019 at 11:05 AM

1. If cows had wings they could fly. Even IF we were 7-0 it would not change anything about the problems on this team and with the coaching staff. Sure, it would make it easier to live with the issues at 7-0, but it wouldn't change a thing about how the fans feel about things right now.

Case in point: We make the late FG against GT and win a squeaker. Makes you feel a little better but would not erase the pure stench that Miami played like during the entire game. Especially against a team that had played as poorly as GT has against supposedly inferior opponents.

"Just Win Baby" sounds like an acceptable plan against #10 UF or #20 ranked UVA but not against a horrible GT team. The fact that we can't even dominate GT is all you need to know about how bad things are right now.

2. OK, sounds good. Please give us some hope again? LOL

"can't be any wore than trotting Baxa out

Posted by: CGNC | October 20, 2019 at 02:54 PM"

It would be tough to be worse, to be fair. If you dig up the close up before the third missed field goal of him on the sideline, it really looks to me like Baxa has a substance abuse problem, heavy dark bags under the eyes at a noon kickoff game? At his age that's either a drinking issue or an opiate addiction issue or a combination of the two. Would explain his shaky inability to not suck completely.

Good points Herbie all valid...I always try to remember If is the middle word in lIFe.....we sure missed on the ifs.....

I cannot hang all this on Mannie....he was not prepared to be the HC.....lests face it we were a blip on the radar from 1980 to 2001.....we have faded in back in to obscurity and may never return. All the big schools have had great years faded and returned in the past....but the playing field is so different now Bama OSU OK LSU have had tough times but come back....NB disappeared whew we did and are not back....MI is not really back, We are gone ....maybe never back....Clemson is the new U.....they won years ago....were nobody really....now the have risen.

The issue is the search....from Clappy, Randy, AlPa, CMR to CMD.....nobody looked for a real coach to get us at the level we need to bhe....we missed some good ones because after 2003 it went in the ditch...nobody wants to come here due to the level of failure...Hope and Change has become Despair and Stagnation!!!

If we could tackle we would be 7-0.
If we could kick a chip shot FG, we would be 7-0.
If we would quit cough up plays of over 40 yds. We would be 7-0.
If Enos knew how to call plays inside the 10, we would be 7-0.
If we had one real QB, we would be 7-0.
If Garvin, Quarterman, Pinkney and Bandy played like they were supposed too, we would be 7-0.
If we could pass block we would be 7-0.
If we could stop trick plays we would be 7-0.
If we weren't getting out coached every game, we would be 7-0.
Should of, could of, would of!
It all smells like a pile of pure dog shyt.

did Many Diaz just say on Joe Rose WQAM ...

"We're 4 plays away from being 7-0."


Posted by: hUh ? | October 21, 2019 at 07:10 AM

This statement is 110% correct.

Your team puting itself in the position to need them against far inferior opponents is another question.

hUh

Coach Diaz ... what about the 100 (10-20 plays per game) or so plays that aren't there over those 7 games that would give you a 2 score lead heading into the 4th. Quarter so you don't always have to rely on a kicker with vertigo at the end of games...

Lots of excuses, hope it gets better, but that will only happen if better players come into the program... Recruiting is the life blood and I'm afraid as this plays out, that too will be on life support.

This is just bad football period. I do not think we have been this bad since pre HS. This is just bad bad football. There is no execution, no fundamentals, no pride, no effort, all apathy....by players and coaches. There is no talent on the field on the sideline in the AD office in the Board Room or in the Administration.....nobody cares and yet here we are....fans still caring why I do not know but we do. This is so bad, hard to express the level it has sunk to.

Better play Linegard. He has 3 games he can still play in or watch at the end of Spring, he'll jump into the transfer portal along with Hightower and our washed out back up OH Linemen.
Manny can paint whatever picture he wants but a few of them coaches need to be sent packing.
Next is Pitt another so so Coastal opponent that Manny thinks is a tough team. We have sunk to FSU level where we less with our talent and actually have way more. We have settled in to mediocracy and that is what the ACC is aside from Clemson a bunch of 5-7 to 8-4 teams.

OGV, I would not start Martell against Pitt, but at some point I would like to see him play. can't be any wore than trotting Baxa out

roachcane77

Davidson kicked the first one... VERY weak, and low right. (34 yds.)
Baxa missed the second one... plenty of height and power, but missed wide right. (27 yds)
Davidson kicked the 3rd one TOTALLY low again, and got blocked by someone on their line, but there was no penetration, so it should have been WAY higher than it was, by the line of scrimmage. (25 yds)

Unbelievable... Davidson appears to only have an "average to weak" high school leg. Baxa has a much stronger leg... but apparently, just can't handle the pressure.

We SUCK... This game, (against a cellar dweller), should NOT have come down to 3 missed "chip shot" field goals. ALL 3 phases of the game are in shambles. COACHING is killing us...

That ain't working.

Also I lied, over-promoted peter principle coordinator is a whole 2-1 off the straight up loss so far. So something is going to give here.

orange 'n green in the vein

From the blob:

"To put things in perspective for you the Yellow Jackets scored two points against powerhouse Temple, then lost to Duke and The Citadel in Atlanta."

You want even more perspective; Citadel went to overtime also, scored six more points, gave up four less than the over-promoted peter principle coordinator's team could manage in the 3/4 empty home stadium a month later.

Home team has won three in a row dating back the 2016 in the former Big East series with the Panthers so this time Pitt will be playing for revenge on homecoming. 1-1 off a straight up loss for the over-promoted peter principle coordinator, Narduzzi is 22-13, 62.8% winning percentage, against conference foes. They barely outscored Randy Shannon's defense at home as a two td underdog this season, UM isn't going to be two score favorites if they're favored at all.

The long season will continue to get longer in the second half of 2019 and I personally wouldn't start a bad QB who couldn't win a job anywhere on the road for his first career starting spot but what do I know? I only took GT and the plus 16 points on the line last week after all . . .
