I really like Doug Flutie and I know he had been through a lot in life.
But is The Hail Flutie the defining moment of college football for all time for crizz sake? That has to be the most shown Hilite of all time.

I could understand if he really hit The Blessed Mother in stride on a deep post but man give that play a rest BC

I didn’t really realize this but when I watch his teams play, even the better teams, I didn’t seem to get a good feel
It could just be that I don’t really follow basketball
I’ll pass on to your judgement

JCane

Out of fairness to coach L, the ncaa made recruiting impossible UM for a few seasons. He may be starting to turn the corner if looking at recent recruits, but it could take another 1-2 years without depth. Question for coach Lbis how many more years does he have left to coach at a high level, let alone vs. ACC.

Play for coach k and Duke or coach L and the U

I feel the same way.

solarcane

We will know in the first ten minutes if the kids are up for a massacre or if we are going to stumble around again after a layoff.
Every time we start fast we seem to play with emotion the entire game.
We start slow we are the same old U.

Agreed! Good thoughts

Our current fan base has gotten soft and complacent - unacceptable losing to the 4 teams we lost to but by demolishing FIU and Duke and winning our bowl game and closing with some key defensive recruits then I will be happy!

At least until next season. lol

Terrance M Sullivan

Aero Big Facts but also they need to show the Fan Base, ACC, and College Football Landscape, that this team has really turned the corner. If we don't destroy this subpar FIU team then we stunt our progress and our Fan Base, Recruits, ACC, and College Football Landscape will notice.

our bigs = 0-6 on FT'S; 7 rebounds 1 asist

blackshear 5-6 FT's; 11 rebounds; 5 assists

having a 7-star on the court is very helpful

alpine

well, the excitement went out of this game totally at the mid-way point of the 2nd half

73-51 and it wouldn't shock me if florida beats us by 30

alpine

61-49 as the canes are brutalized the last 5 minutes
. . . shooting-wise, canes going so cold, i had to put a sweater on

alpine

our big, miller = 0 for 2 on FT's

their big, blackshear, 5-5 FT'S . . . overall 20 pts.

56-49 gators . . . miami playing well but make a few too many mistakes

alpine

for a moment it was 45-45
but gators hit a 3 = 48-45 for the chompers

alpine

lykes had a 2-minute period where he turned the ball over 3 times; otherwise, VERY solid going 4 of 6 including 1-1 on 3-pts

but blackshear is 5 of 6 including all 3 3-pt. shots for 13 pts + blocks & assists & such . . . dude is big & bad and i have no idea how canes will contain him

alpine

a gak on canes and another on the gators

question of the day since we have halftime to kill: "do two gaks make a gowk**"?
or is it, "2 gawks make a gak"?

(a "gowk" is an awkward or foolish person")

Worsham is supposedly announcing today. I doubt Knighton making an announcement any time soon. Parents are big fans of the Canes. Unless some Hugh name given job at FSU, it should be between us and Gators.
Flowe between us and Clemson.
Greene between us and FSU. If Haggins named coach he probably sticks with them.
Hippolite would be a kid We can flip, if we lose out on Flowe or Greene.

Worsham and Knighton? What a great recruiting class!

Go Canes!!

All the local recruiting gurus doing the Crystal Ball thing for Knighton to the U.

Parents want him here which is huge.

Would be a massive get for Manny and his staff from a school that has traditionally avoided sending kids to the U like the plague.

Add Worsham to the mix and we are gaining huge momentum going into signing day.

If we can avoid crapping the bed these final eight days on the field we'll be alright.

Go Canes!!

Terrance M Sullivan

Well GT will finish 3-9 instead of 2-10.

Tony:

Gotta think Worsham. Knighton would be great, but I'd be surprised if he didn't go with FU. Unfortunately he attended the U-GT game...not a shining moment. How the last few weeks have turned him. Truly like what I see of TVD at qb. Needs more protection. Hope he gets at least one nice weapon tomorrow.

Three very important things CMD accomplished as Canes HC:

1. First bowl victory (and a convincing 31-14 win) in over a decade;
2. #2 ranking and relevance in college football (although temporary);
3. A major bowl appearance (Orange Bowl)

Dazalin Worsham and Coach Enos

Miami could land an All-American WR this week. His coach explains why UM is a contender
BY DAVID WILSON


Historically, the Miami Hurricanes and Alabama Crimson Tide have plenty in common. Dazalin Worsham knows all this.

Both have had multiple historical runs of dominance in the past 40 years. Both are on the short list of teams with five national championships. The two both have exactly eight former players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and consistently are among the schools with the most players in the NFL. On Friday, Worsham will commit to one of the two. Miami offers him something his hometown team doesn’t right now.

This story is a subscriber exclusive
“I think he wants to be part of building something, and obviously Miami has a great history and great past,” said Josh Floyd, who coaches Worsham at Hewitt-Trussville in Alabama, “so I think he’s excited about trying to get them back going in that direction.”


The two programs’ trajectories right now are wildly different, of course. Alabama is once again a College Football Playoff contender, while the Hurricanes have spent most of the year battling just to be better than .500. The Crimson Tide is in the throes of a dynasty, while the Miami is, for lack of a better word, still rebuilding.


Worsham was once committed to Alabama. On Friday, he’s slated to make an oral commitment once again, and the final choice is coming down to the Hurricanes or the Crimson Tide. Miami’s situation — a rebuild now showing promise with a three-game winning streak — is uniquely appealing to Worsham, as is the coaching staff.

When Worsham was committed to the Crimson Tide, offensive coordinator Dan Enos was Alabama’s quarterbacks coach, so he knows what Enos can do when working at his best. When he came to Coral Gables for an official visit in June, Worsham got to know wide receivers coach Taylor Stubblefield well, so he has faith in the way he would be developed.


The relationship with Enos is what first drew him to the Hurricanes. Worsham committed to the Crimson Tide in 2018 and became a target of the Hurricanes’ new coaching staff when it came together in January. Enos knew Worsham from his time at Alabama and liked him enough to bring him down to South Florida for a visit. A few days after his official visit wrapped up, Worsham decommitted from the Crimson Tide, although the assumed pledge to Miami never followed.

For a while, Alabama appeared to reassert itself as the favorite before the Hurricanes climbed back into serious contention. After fellow four-star wide receiver Marcus Fleming decommitted from Miami on Monday, Worsham would be a critical addition for the Hurricanes heading into the early signing period next month.

“The first thing was probably the relationship with Coach Enos, just since he had been committed to Alabama, and Coach Enos is proven to be a great offensive mind and has shown to throw the ball around quite a bit,” Floyd said. “I think that’s what initially started it, and then when he came down he just had a great time. I know he likes the receivers coach down there, also. He just had a great time on his trip.”

The No. 50 wide receiver in the 247Sports.com composite rankings for the Class of 2020, Worsham is considered one of the best route-runners in the country, and he has had a wildly productive career in Trussville. An Under Armour All-American, Worsham finished his senior season with 54 catches for 427 yards and six touchdowns after he had 87 catches for 1,022 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior in 2018.

“The best thing is his route-running,” Floyd said. “He does a great job getting in and out of his breaks. He’s obviously a guy that can run and everything, beat people deep and all that, but I think what separates him from a lot of guys is just his route-running. And he’s just gotten better and better at that over the years.”

It theoretically could make the 6-foot, 185-pound receiver a plug-and-play option for next year when K.J. Osborn’s eligibility is exhausted and fellow wide receiver Jeff Thomas could enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Recent elite wide receiver prospects such as sophomore Mark Pope, a five-star recruit in the Rivals.com rankings for the Class of 2018, and freshman Jeremiah Payton haven’t seen consistent playing time as freshmen, usually because of some combination of unpolished route-running and difficulty grasping the playbook.

If Thomas leaves, Miami could be looking at a starting wide receiver trio of Pope, Dee Wiggins and Mike Harley, with Payton as one backup. Worsham and fellow four-star wideout Michael Redding III could be in line for early playing time, and Worsham would be a logical option in the slot.

“I think he’s obviously an athletic kid, so that helps his route-running, but I think it’s just something he spends a lot of time on himself, too,” Floyd said. “We obviously try to do a great job coaching him, as well, but he’s kind of a guy that will spend a little bit on that in his own time and I think that’s what’s helped him with his craft over the years.”

Here's a quick FU tidbit from the NYTimes regarding the 2008 Tim Tebow Gators ...

A roster on the university’s Web site lists 121 players, 41 of whom have been arrested, either in college or afterward, and sometimes both. That number included 16 players on that season’s final two-deep roster, nine of whom were starters, as well as a kicker, punter and returner.

How bout new and insightful ideas to keep South Florida players from decommitting from the Canes? I believe we lead the nation in decommits. Saying that winning will make all the difference, doesn't count.

Or when in doubt, have another Gator hate week. I believe FU leads all P5 schools in arrests, misdemeanors and felonies for the past 10 years.

The team turned into Rodney Miller's so gradually during his red shirt season last year I'm not sure the program realizes it yet? Or the Pimp is playing dumb about it intentionally.

agree solar . . . time to blow someone outta the water; but there's some games to play first, before we have to think too hard about the possibility of bowling over someone or it's horrible inverted cousin, "canes-as-the-10pins"

solarcane

We need a patsy bowl opponent to go along with our last two regular season opponents.We need to rack up some ungodly stats for recruits to see.

I have been watching the Hurricanes for a long long time and the only two blow out Miami bowl wins I can remember were Texas in the cotton bowl in 91, then I think we shut out Nebraska the next year.

Other than that bowl games are not a big recruiting plus for us in my opinion, we dont dominate teams in bowls like Clemson or any of the big dogs. Aren't we about 50 50 all time in bowls?

BigWindyCane1

In all seriousness, the Canes are what we are right now — we attract and collect high-end South Florida talent early in the recruiting process before the winning, high-end college programs start calling and financing visits our best recruits.

For the high end recruits, winning matters — plain and simple. The Canes must win the next two games convincingly, then the Canes need to look good and possibly win a solid bowl game in order to beat other high-end competition in the recruiting game this year. If he does that, he will be on par with what CMR did his first season in Coral Gables.

I think CMD will get it done.

^^^^
to flow further with a flawed example:

- losing to GA TECH at that point in the season, with our history, meant a clear track of negativity

- winning barely at PITT was positive, sort of, but a VERY muddy, dangerous track; less muddy the next week, less muddy after louisville

- but maybe for most it still feels like we want to hang out behind closed gates and not take any chance at all at getting hurt?

thanks for the response, 86
. . . and i see what you're saying, but i don't really see it the same way

- i think there's a lot of emotion, but it's like the horses before the gates open; kind of antsy, but locked up and no place to let the energy run
. . . first of all, a wait for the gate to open
. . . then you have to see what racetrack the gate is opening to
. . . is it gonna be a muddy, dangerous one, where you have to hold back due to fear of getting hurt . . . or will it be clear conditions and a wonderful track for a strong run toward either negativity or positivity but in any case a run of "certainty"

something like that; not sure i hit the right metaphor, but you get what i mean, or?
