"If I leave now, that makes me a deadbeat dad, because this is my family," he told them. "I want to finish my career right here at Miami."

Read this slowly...you know he now has some SERIOUS regrets about leaving and had he lived up to this statement both he, and us the fans, would be much better off for it. We may have avoided these 15 years of miseey we have been suffering.

But I don't hold it against him and when he took his team of unwanted misfits at FIU and beat our azzes this year on the field where it counts it was his crowning moment.

You may hate the man for "lying" but you have to respect him for what he has accomplished. He beat Miami while at FIU.

That is a miracle all to itself.

And that you have to admit.

86Cane

Of course he has a eye for talent and he deserves props for that but he is still a 8-5 Coach.

An 8-5 coach that just beat your 6-7 coach's azz?

Terrance M Sullivan

So Why come FIU didn't beat Miami last year. This reverence of a Career 8-5 Coach is astounding to me but hey what do I know lol. Got to love when being objective is passed off as Hating lol. BTW beating Miami down the stretch is not saying much I mean we could hire Skip Holtz lol his La Tech team beat the breaks off the Great 6-7 FIU Butch Davis Team and congratulations to Butch and FIU for beating the crap show that is Palmetto 57th Manny and crew. But I know I ain't changing y'all minds and y'all ain't changing my mind.

Before the season I would have wholeheartedly agreed FIU winning constituted a miracle. After witnessing the shit show presented this year, Iā€™m more inclined to categorize it as a major achievement.

solarcane

Soup WTF?
Please please count to ten before you post.

Yes I have made a lot of mistakes in my life, lying to people I love isn't one of them.

Faking and lying are the same thing to me though.
Did you not watch the FIU game?

" OK boys I want you to lie down with cramps at least 5 times during the game,no no no, that's not lying it's OK BELIEVE me Im the head coach.

He is going to pull more crap, Ill point it out to you in case you miss it lol!

Matter of fact I stayed at Central Broward Construction for fifteen years as a lead Forman, turning down offers from our biggest competitors to come to them for more money, so I was loyal but hurt myself in the long run there I suppose.

I loved seeing the joy in Cristobal`s face too, what a cool guy. How did we not take him when we had the chance??

Happy New Year and all the best this year my friend

86Cane

Count to ten? Ok, no problem:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Missing someone kicking the ant pile twice?

Unforgivable.

86Cane

But that TSully. Now that guy is a rat's azz who wouldn't know a coach from a door handle.

Note to self: Try one more time?

LOL

86Cane

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And that means Solar, Sully and the rest of U knuckleheads here on Canespace except for KYCane.

That guy sucks.

Terrance M Sullivan

Lol Soupster Happy New Year Brotha!

Man these guys are rooster clowns. "Butch is 8-5 coach"? At UNC and FIU is that supposed to be a slight?

One guy was 51-20 at Miami and the other guy was 26-13 at Miami? And guess who is the " good coach" LOL.

Oh let me guess one guy lied

Apparently lying is now a Federal offense punishable by either a lifetime ban or the death penalty. So, in other words:

Lying is really bad but losing is really good?

Who won today between Minnesota and Auburn?

Happy New Year Jax

Davis has been a head coach 13 years he has a winning percentage just above 60% counting all schools.
2/3(66%) of a twelve game season is 8 games. That would make Davis as Terrence stated an 8-4 coach.
Explain how this is incorrect, thanks.

"Where you coach at" has a lot to do with your overall record. Hell, Belichek couldn't win in Cleveland

Having 16 wins taken away for probation doesn't help your record come on let's be serious here. LOL. He basically left Coker an unbeatable team. BTW Coker is 86-47 as a head coach, let's rehire him, lol be for real.

Nah man, lying is all the rage right now soup where you been man?

JaxCane

We keep complaining about how we're not giving out the bags like Clemson or Bama, how we don't have top notch recruiters (closers) or we can't get the qb, why not go back with the ultimate guy? He covered all bases from the head coach position. He basically recruited the perfect team that covered up for a 7th round draft pick qb.

I understand it hurts but it's the truth

Now you have really lost me.
What was Howard's first year like at Miami. He didn't have anything close to a powerhouse to start off with.

Didn't Davis pick the teams he coached at? If he was a tremendous coach when he came back to college coaching would he be at a basketball school or say Ohio State,Penn State etc?

JaxCane

Posted by: solarcane | January 01, 2020 at 11:06 PM

Now we're talking, I lost you? Really.

"What was Howard's first year like at Miami. He didn't have anything close to a powerhouse to start off with."

So with speaking on Butch you want to talk about the career record but with Howard it's his first year? 5-6 btw, career 158ā€“151ā€“3[27]. So I'm assuming you mean Butch had a power house? You've totally lost me. LoL

"Didn't Davis pick the teams he coached at?" Uh he wasn't going to get the pick of the litter leaving Cleveland. Let's be real. UNC was on the upswing until the stuff happened with the guys getting suspended, let's not be naive.

If U wanna fight, meet me at the bike rack at 3 PM.

solarcane

Ok Jax I get your points.
Would we agree in this, The Big East was pretty dang soft?
Butchs 2000 guys played in conference
WV 7 5
BC 7 5
Rutgers 3 8
Temple 4 7
Pitt 7 5
VT 11 1
Throw in Mcneese St,La Tech automatic wins
They beat a great FSU team, Florida, a great VT team and lost to a good Washington team

So I agree Butch built a great team,he also beat 3 really good teams and lost to one good team in his best year as a head coach, and he had 7 automatic wins in a 12 game schedule.

JaxCane

So you mean as opposed to this rough and rugged ACC?

Florida State
11-2
Clemson
9-3
Georgia Tech
9-3
Virginia
6-6
North Carolina State
8-4
North Carolina 6 6-5
Maryland 5-6
Wake Forest
2- 9
Duke
0-11

I see how you are - wait for an old guy to go to sleep then insult him -

Go Canes!!

Couple of things about the recent blog entries:

1) Mario's team was totally outplayed last night but still found a way to win. If Wisconsin doesn't turn it over four times, including the most wtf thing I've seen in a long time from their punter, everyone would be railing him for putting up 200 yds of offense behind the best OL and QB in the PAC 12.

But Wisconsin did and they capitalized on it. That's what good teams do.

2) Butch is a lying snake who's time here ended the day he slithered out of town here in 2000. Used to like him and understood why he bolted but the way he's continued to try and rewrite history the last few years shows him for exactly what he is.

He has one 10 win season in TWENTY years of coaching and beating this pathetic, lazy, poorly coached Canes team makes him 0% more qualified to ever be on our sidelines again. He is an average coach who struck lightning in a bottle, once.

I figured you for an "early to bed, early to rise" kinda guy so I thought the coast would be clear to hurl insults your way late at night. My insitincts were correct!

Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 02, 2020 at 08:34 AM

Let's try to be clear:

1. I am not one of those who is saying BBB (Bring Back Butch) at THIS time in history. But I do wish he had never left and/or left the way he did. I think it was the biggest mistake in his career.

2. I was in favor of brining him back when we hired Golden or Richt. Golden was probably a mistake and the mistake he made was not firing his butt buddy No D or he may still be here.

3. When we hired Richt the knock against Butch then was he was too old and tired to bring him back. Turns out that is exactly what Richt was, and now he too, is history.

4. The bottom line is this: The ONLY argument I am making is that for as bad as Butch is for lying and "slithering out of town" is that he is better than the current head coach we have as he demonstrated where it counts, on the field. To that there is no arguement or debate.

So for people to trash Butch as morally inferior human being who once made the tragic mistake of telling a lie is just ludicrous. If we had a halfway decent head coach we wouldn't even be talking about Butch. But we don't.

So where does that leave us? It leaves us living here in our pretty little glass house throwing rocks around everywhere after being soundly beaten by Butch and band of FIU rejects and rag tags living with "what could never happen".

Life is strange that way, wouldn't you agree?

Me too. I about spit my coffee out!

HerbieIbis

Dam, we still talking about Butch. Butch couldn't get us out of this nightmare.
Power struggle be tween BOT members and Jake Blames and then Manny not wanting a ramrod type guy over looking him. Not guys anywhere to be found and still no OC. Either we must be waiting on a Cristobal answer or the OC he is after coaches for either Clemson or LSU, otherwise why the wait.

86Cane

I agree talking about Butch is like grasping at straws. But desperate people do desperate things.

And believe me Miami fans are DESPERATE!

desperate [ des-per-it, -prit ]

adjective

1. reckless or dangerous because of despair, hopelessness, or urgency:
a desperate killer.

2. having an urgent need, desire, etc.:
desperate for attention;
desperate to find a job.

3. leaving little or no hope; very serious or dangerous:
a desperate illness.

4. extremely bad; intolerable or shocking:
clothes in desperate taste.

Watching the Oregon and Wisky Offensive Lines at work made me envious and long for better days.
