Lingard redshirting this is good news he is staying

NEW BLOG IS UP!

If CMD continues this madness, this recruiting class will fall apart. Our remaining five star recruits will hit the transfer portal. The Canes will continue to be cellar dwellers of the ACC.

Other opposing coaches are laughing at us. Our lack of preparation and adjustments are mind-boggling!

OL coach needs to be fired yesterday...... watching the game, i can count on 2 hands how many times someone didn't block a single person....on one play, 2 lineman were side by side and didn't block anyone.....pathetic.

Joe Montana could be our Q and he would get trashed behind this line

People were booing CMD yesterday, especially when he came on the jumbotron. 5 games in. Might be some kind of record.

CMD has earned every one of those boo-birds. A Hurricanes coach starting his football coaching career at Miami 0-2, and now 2-3 is also some kind of record

orange 'n green in the vein

CGNC(SFL), having now personally seen both quarterbacks with the numeral five on their jersey in the same real game, did you figure out if you were mistaking one for the other at the spring game and to start this season after all, or no?

Over-promoted-peter-principle-coordinator: 1-1 off a straight up loss.

Bronco Mendenhall: 31-27 career overall, 7-13 off a straight up loss at UVA.

Something has to give.

Mendenhall: 19-11 career overall, 3-2 off a bye at UVA.

Liver might be toxic but you can't live without one, big toe you can thrive without relatively easily.

GD is much more like a blob's prostate anyway than a toe but the analogy works better with Tom's formulation . . .

If there is swagger here, there’s some stagger, too.....from Cote in Herald....staggering right now....no doubt ....and UVA coming Friday....

VA Cane

This season has been a nightmare from the beginning lose FL, lose NC....beat up a pee wee team, get challenged by another pee wee team, then play like this....the whole stretch is just another low added to a series of lows that began in the Fiesta Bowl!!
So since then you keep whining and complaining....and LOSING!!! Very sad for 16 years....and wrong regarding the fans...we deserve better!!

“An absolutely insane football game,” UM coach Manny Diaz called it -- and that was almost an understatement. A Miami win, he said rightly, “would have been one of the most historic of all time.”

Point is that it was not a win...not a great game....another epic failure.

Listening to QAM sports radio on the way home from the game yesterday and they had Rashad Butler on - he pretty much said the same thing.

I saw that! Maybe that is his politico talk - not wanting JW15 to go in the tank (being hopeful here).

Mark from Atl

Maybe just maybe we play like we’re down 3-4 scored from the beginning of the game??

Jesus I just flew back and was so excited to watch and shitstain on my tv 28-0!!!!

God bless you and your family and go canes!
Jokers are killing me
55 years young but I love this team since my 1st game in the OB @ 11 years old

Andre Johnson is probably in tears right about now thinking that this is the same team he played for.

As horrible as we are we could be 5-0. Baxa is a cancer that wrecks all the great feelings in the room. There has to be somebody to wreck the fun for everyone and my friends is Big Bubba Baxley.

I agree. Like Herbie said he is no savior but that offensive line is horrible and his mobility gives us a chance. He looks way better than last year. Besides JT4 came alive when he was in there. JW15 has been throwing behind people all season.

Posted by: CGNC | October 06, 2019 at 09:33 AM

CMD has already come out to say that the five TDs that Perry led the Canes on showed him nothing. CMD went on to say that Perry made too many mistakes, and Jarren is the better QB. Jarren’s three interceptions in on 7 passes mean nothing to CMD.

I don’t know about you, but it sounds like CMD is determined to be the worst coach in Canes history. The lack of preparation, politics, favoritisms and stubbornness of the coaches on this team is mind boggling.

LSU guy moved back on the bayou awhile ago.
He texted me just now and said the LSU band wants to play us.

Ugh you gave him your number? Ouch. I think we could beat their band lol.....

CGNC

Posted by: TonyCane | October 05, 2019 at 07:59 PM

Excellent post. I would like to add that they also ignored special teams for 3+ years which also cost us. Everyone that wants Diaz fired needs to remember that Blake James hired him and also hired Richt. He is the one that needs to be fired. Neither one of them should have been coaching here.

Go Canes!!

That was embarrassing, from start ot finish.

We suck.

That is all.

thirstybuzzardcane

The funny thing is, we’re a kicker away from being 5-0. The defense has been a huge disappointment this season.

roachcane77

We are poorly coached.

We are losing recruits left and right.

I don't see either of these problems getting fixed.

VA Cane

Get the plane started with Benny Hill flying it dive bombing stadium with womens panties while Yakety Sax plays over the system....just another embarrassment since the NCAA Fiesta Fiasco.....Stomping the ville logo, Fiu fight, Brian Pata sadness, OB vs UVA, Randy SFLA, liberal midget holding the check with Haith and Hurricane Nevin, AlPa vs Clemson, CMR and his famous losing streaks, the bowl games since Fiesta 4 - 9 record...0-3 vs Whisky......ask Mike Nesmith (incredible musician check his stuff...he aint no monkey lol!) to write a musical tribute and he would give you his 1972 LP...."And the Hits Just Keep On Coming"

Agree 100%.

I think OGV is the liver and Go Canes is the big toe. One is toxic and the other keeps stubbing itself?

The only question really left is: Will Go Canes take another TWO WEEK self imposed ban?

LOL

We had no chance because:

We always suck coming off a bye

We played against a qb starting for the first time

Yes Sir we go in the spring and fall almost everyyea

BigWindyCane


My view from the stands says Perry needs to start! He was very poised out there unlike Jarren. Jarren does not look comfortable out there and he never has all season. Man, this really sucks!

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | October 05, 2019 at 10:22 PM

Well TBC, you will be pleased to know that CMD has named Jarren the starter next week against Virginia.

I can’t believe what I am hearing! Canes fans deserve better than this crap 💩

thirstybuzzardcane

Baxa lost this game for us! VT is going to play different being down 1 than a tied game. Not sure why VT was trying to score a TD at the end, I would’ve taken a knee three times a kicked the fg. They gave the ball back to Miami with a minute left.

Watching Georgia's line block is just like watching Wisconsin, except Georgia rotates guys in and out that are better than the guy that was in there.
We are pathetic.

TonyCane

Tony,
Miami has proved over and over they can not evaluate what a good head coach consists of. What makes you optimistic that the light will come on?
I think the only way we get a great head coach is by pure luck,not by the administration's knowledge.

If we sit it out with Manny for 4 or 5 years I think we compete, but I am not as consumed with the Canes winning percentage as I was around when Shannon came in.jmo

Posted by: solarcane | October 05, 2019 at 08:24 PM

I feel you. The decade plus of mediocrity, of getting hope up only to have it dashed is starting to get me numb. It's also creating a cycle where I think I'm not alone in that we're willing to give the new HC less and less rope.

I'm going to really circle back to Al Golden on this. It's amazing what he squandered because of stubborness. If he hired Manny (or someone like him) after 2013 to be the DC, I'm reasonably certain he's still our head coach and we likely go 10-3 and 10-2 in the 2014 and 2015 regular season. You can't underestimate how three coaching regimes in five years has hurt our program.

If we were Stanford the band would play this when we ran out through the smoke, and I am not kidding.

Jarren's excuse he had been dealing with a sore arm.

Posted by: Herbieibis | October 05, 2019 at 08:09 PM

That too ties in to the terrible, historically bad offensive line (perhaps 1997 was as bad or worse?). Williams got smashed in the fourth quarter of the previous game. My guess is he has a pretty bad shoulder strain that he's trying to fight through.

Is there really not a better option than Baxa on the roster?

Basura

We have any kicker in the history of college football other than Baxa, we have maybe 1 loss.

BigWindyCane

The Canes are getting out coached every game. It’s tough to watch.

I question many personnel decisions, including the decision to start Jarren, Clark, Nelson and Carter.

The one positive I see is the the Canes didn’t quit. Blake Baker isn’t the same DC that Manny was, but at least the offense played well. You can’t win any football game with -5 turnovers and 11 penalties for 90 yards. That is the definition of a poorly coached football team

Herbieibis

No, we get a thing TD, a personal foul celebration penalty, miss the Xtra point and then have to kick off from the 20 or 25. That's how u eff yourself 3 times on one play. What a bunch of misfits!

Posted by: VA Cane | October 05, 2019 at 07:39 PM

Hell no. If Scott Frost can take lesser South Florida talent and built UCF into a reasonable program, a talented and forward thinking HC can do the same at a Miami. It's not impossible - we just need to make the right hire.

Besides, the college football landscape is going to change drastically in ten years with player endorsements, political pressures (related to football injuries and cost), and college debt. We don't know yet how this will help or hurt Miami, but I suspect the fact that our operating costs are a heck of a lot lower than a University of California for instance will be a benefit.

solarcane

Tony good points

TonyCane


Ok we were shoe ins to win the Coastal,

Then we were gonna win 9 or ten games

Then we were gonna win the rest of the schedule.

Now we will be talking about being bowl eligible being a big deal
Posted by: solarcane | October 05, 2019 at 04:53 PM

We likely will not be, and will finish this season 4-8. Honestly, I do not think that this is a historically bad Miami team or that this is a historically bad coaching staff (I think that honor goes at the moment to Shannon's). It's the misses on offensive line over the last three years that have broken EVERYTHING down.

That said, it is frightening when you look at the quarter by quarter numbers. North Carolina and Virginia Tech outscored us by an astounding 38-3! We've been outscored 13-45 in four of our five games so far this year. While I don't think that the Canes are coming in flat, they are unprepared in key areas. We're good at making adjustments (we outscore our opponents 27-9 in Q2 this year), but we are not clicking at the beginning.

All of this said, I think that our record in 2019 would be the same if Mark Richt was still coach. However the margins of defeat would have been far greater. The Canes haven't given up in any of these defeats, and we've lost by an average of less than 5 points in the three losses.

So you get a tying touchdown and then get some stupid penalty for celebrating after. Will these kids (I mean idiots learn)? I mean I answered my own question... and this all stems from the top down. As I said before this “blueprint” does not work anymore and it hasn’t for 15 years. The college game has passed up this program. Next hire better be someone with no ties this program.

VA Cane

Just hard to keep saying growing pains, you got to go through it, takes time....they are worn out...well...excuses. Clappy, Onion, AlPa, CMR, CMD....there has been no real coach search that was serious at all. How does this happen? 5 times? who is running this program? The board should resign!!

Francois must of known something by decomitting. Wouldn't be surprised to see a few more shortly. The Oh line is an absolute disgrace to college football. No QB should risk their life behind it.

solarcane

Cerified bad ass VA

AeroCane

It’s really ashame this staff sucks so bad
I wouldn’t be surprised if lingard and maybe even Rousseau enter the portal
And there is no question - they will be STARS wherever they go
But why stay here? Rousseau plays like every once in a while and every time he makes a great play, he comes out; lingard simply because we aren’t using him and especially in a game like this, he could of maybe broken a run, or at least kept their pass rush honest

I am ready to chip in for the banner - get rid of manny NOW and Blake James and hire urban ASAP before he goes to usc. If we can’t get him, wait til after the season and get a good one!!!
