Terrance M Sullivan

Congratulations UMike!

UMike

Well... I got myself a job :)

VA Cane

We got a saying from back in the mountains.....

"If you do not want to run with the big dogs, stay on the porch; if you do want to run with the big dogs, learn to piss in the tall weeds!"

or Earnhardt about Talladega "If you don’t want to race fast at Talladega, tie a kerosene-soaked rag around your ankles so the ants don’t come up there and eat that candy ass!"

I cannot understand a man going onto that field and not be willing to DIE TO WIN.....Its all that matters in anything....WIN! JMO

VA Cane

I think 2003 Fiesta Fiasco was the start....we went down in 2003 to 11-2...sprung a leak...little more in 2004....to 9-3...more leaking..both not what we were used to being...2005 we lost opener to FSU...then rolled to # 3 when GT beat us...then came the Peach Bowl Blowout....LSU whipped us bad....and the bottom dropped out of the boat.....we been drowning ever since...guess ya got to get back in the water off the dry barren wasteland....We became Strangers in a Strange Land(Robert A. Heinlein)....time to get back in the water learn to swim with the big boys again....

Good post VA,
I have always felt the 2005 Peach Bowl ass kicking courtesy of LSU was the beginning of the end of it being all about The U.

solarcane

soup,
It was gold

VA Cane

I have always contended the U died 1 2003 at the Fiesta Fiasco.....factually not true. The spirit, the leadership, the depth, the willingness to compete DID DIE! 2003 we had some greats Carey, Gore,Hester,Joseph,Roscoe, K2, ST26, JVilma,Beason,Rolle,Wilfork,Rolle, DJ.....11-2....got destroyed at VT (met ST26 with my son) sucked against UT....but the depth...the want to die to win, offensive leadership...Brock Berlin FL retred....it was not complete. It really slipped but was not a bad team.....2004 was still decent...9-3...but the rot had set in. Each year there were bad glaring losses the poor coaching at all 3 aspects of the game....and it got worse and worse and worse!

We still had some good players here and there....but no QB...no attack....weak DL OL....and a turnstile of bad coaches in all areas!

Now we are way out of the National picture....we are not even in the local picture....FSU has fallen but are making changes...FL is better, FIU beat us, FAU was 11-3, UCF 35-4 last 3 years....there is no tale3nt and its getting worse....hope we can pull out of this....we have to be at the bottom...

excellent stat, herb!

strange, that it's both eye-opening and unsurprising at the same time

HerbieIbis

JC,
That's an A-1 fact about the talent gap. The SEC is so strong, it even helps the the mid tier teams in their conference get pretty good classes.
To many teams in The ACC are up and down. No consistency. A bunch of teams that are between 5-7 & 7-5. 14 teams and those records are probably true for 9 of the teams.
Most of the top level players in the South want to play in the SEC.
Probably 6 to 7 of the top recruiting classes are from the SEC. The only way for the ACC to get better is for Miami, FSU and Va. Tech to get their shyt together. Unc will be good but they have never been able to sustain success.
Right now Clemson has taken over the ACC and there is no comp. Maybe one game a year, when the stars align right some team can have a chance at an upset. No team can play 12 straight weeks at a high level, without a couple bad halves and a bad game. The difference the good teams find a way to win those.

JCane

Is he capable of figuring this out, Herb? Hopefully the new OC makes him smarter. Concerning but good stat, in case anyone doesn't notice the huge talent gaps in ncaa fb like never before.

TheHerb

He don't want to win that bad by keeping William's around.

JCane

I hope CMD learns on the job and becomes one of the greats, but when your primary mantra is the TNM and changing the culture, having articles talking about a party culture and seeing the issues starting from the supposedbteam leaders (i.e. QBs), it tells me either he doesn't get it or that he has no choice because his QB options are woeful, both in talent and in maturity/desire to win/intelligence, or a combination thereof. One can HOPE that the incoming QB, maybe another by portal, will be a big step. Since I have no other choice, I'll hope. VC's nicknames for the top 2 QBs from last year says it all about their immaturity and lack of desire to win. At least I think Manny really wants to win...

DallasTX Cane

Windy, Al: agree on Manny’s comments re current players and incoming class. Reeks of desperation... “the new kids’ll save both my ass and this program”... lol. Get the culture and attitudes right or else you’ll lose those kids as they absorb the loser mentality OR get out because they want something/someplace better!

Joe Burrow throws for 16 TD's last season and follows that up with 60 this season.

Just like our QB Williams, right?

Oh wait, I am getting new information.

OK, not so much?

Please please......40 will be fine lets not get high hopes for such a talented athlete!!!!

BigWindyCane1

Cora was obviously a Cane, but he lost his way along the road. Surprised that he resorted to this. This strikes ⚾️the integrity of the game. O, Cora should never have a job in the MLB again

Sarasota 'cane

Good riddance. This is so much worse than the steroid scandal. My TB Rays lost a game 5 division playoff match-up in Houston this season and the Yankees lost the ALCS a few weeks later. The Red Sox won the World Series in 2018 in Alex's 1st season as skipper, one year removed from Houston having won the 2017 World Series.

Coaches fault for letting him get away with the added kilos. He must of been sitting with Zion at the buffet table last winter and spring. Zion went from 240 to 285 in about 3 months.

That video of OBJ is funny, although LSU now claims that the money 💰 is fake?

I must admit, I laughed because the video reminds me of an optimist football game here in South Florida

Coker did make changes. He fired about 5 coaches. His problem he didn't realize the problem was him.

Posted by: HerbiIbis | January 14, 2020 at 10:30 AM

LOL I remember reading the ticker tape on the bottom of ESPN when he did that - and I thought, doesn't he haveaa mirror?

DTX - Good post as always. I wish you were our AD

TheHerb

Va,
If u don't want them show boating, then they got to do something about it. They didn't want us dancing in the old days, then they should of stopped us. The NCAA had to stop us. Might as well say the NCAA's do's and don't are clips of the old Miami teams.
The kids can't do a little celebrating after scoring a tad but they can point after catching a first down pass.
The NCAA is to up tight. At least let them spike it on a TD. No dancing or gyrations but only after a TD.
Ole Trevor was like a good pitcher who couldn't locate his fastball last night.
I didn't see no generational talent but the dude is good. One thing, to me he lacks is touch. He throws it 90 mph but is lacking a little touch.
Want to know how far from Clemson we are:
0ne Qb
2 oh linemen
At least 2 wr.
One DT
One LB
One DB
8 talented difference makers.
We may have a few on the team but none has risen to the top, yet.
RUSSO CAN BE BUT LET'S SEE HIM PUT BACK TO BACK YEARS TOGETHER.
Jordan can be but the same goes for him.
Silverado could be BUT he has not proven it yet.
Coaching has got to reach these dudes but even there, is a problem. We lack a few pieces there as well.
This thing ain't going to turn around fast enough but it better because looking us smack dab in our lamps is Bama to start 2021 off.

VA Cane

Hello KY.....damn we sure needed that dumpster....it might not be roaring....nah it is....raging as usual!

VA Cane

Agree Sarasota....there is no room for cheating in any game...play hard win or lose. Thats why a lot of people agree that the NE Super Bowls are shams...they have been cheating for a long time....yet the league looks the other way. Good teams...but cheaters. Josh McDaniel tried taping vs 49ers in Denver....and that combined with poor coaching sent him crawling back to NE. They were never really held accountable...but they cheat.

VA Cane

LSU has a fine team....they played well. Both these teams are far better than we are; we should not be on the same field with either....Clemson was the nail for AlPa ands I think the LSU game told CMR he needed to get out of the game as well. While I think they both were really good....they...or any other team will never touch UM 2001....hands down the greatest team ever...IMO!!!

Two things I saw and did not like....pretty boy Trevor Lawrence blew a kiss to the LSU fans....fine player but no need for that.
Joe Burrow started pointing at a ring late in the game; again that is not needed.

We like to keep our feelings, no matter good or bad, close to the vest. We do not talk or point or make gestures. It happens and we have the answer.....I tell my guys its that time.....some Tatumizers..Low hard clean fast LEGAL.....but send a silent message from there on out....I have never run the score up ever...but I have seen some people leave the game...and not want to come back. I am not for talking pointing or doing childish things that should not be done....but if so....we send hard messages.

alpine

Someone mention a dumpster?

Posted by: KYcane | January 14, 2020 at 10:26 AM

lol!

HerbiIbis

Until we get close to Clemson's level a majority of So. Flo. talent will flock to the SEC schools because it is a much stronger and better conference. Bigger games, better completion, and better players.
Coker did make changes. He fired about 5 coaches. His problem he didn't realize the problem was him.

Sarasota 'cane

Former UM Baseball player and current Red Sox skipper is in a lot of trouble and should be kicked out of the game.

He should join the Houston *Astericks skipper and GM on the unemployment line.

(manny's) comments can often appear to be unnecessary veiled shots at his current players--players he will need to turn this program around.
Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | January 14, 2020 at 08:50 AM

i agree . . .
most of his "talking points" need to be thrown into that fiery dumpster where golden's binders ended up

BigWindyCane1

DTXCane,

I like the Lashlee hire too, and I love his interview and what it communicates to the current players and recruits.

But CMD's interview about incoming recruits, IMHO, is not on the same level. You just don't see many HCs of major programs making the kind of statements that CMD does. CMD might be a good salesman to the public, but his comments can often appear to be unnecessary veiled shots at his current players--players he will need to turn this program around.

Inspiration starts at the top. IMHO, CMD should study the good coaches and learn their interview techniques, or stop giving interviews about the offense entirely.

CMD still has a lot to learn. I hope he gets out of the way and allow Lashlee to run the offense.

DallasTX Cane

Lashlee is a step in the right direction. I wanted Enos to work out, but what a disaster. Must admit, CGNC (and others) knew the truth of him far earlier than I.

Word of warning... there’s SO much more going on than simply the type offense, it’s going to take a couple of years to right the ship IF Manny is the right guy for the job. That he is taking action now is a good sign, but if U think he’s learned every lesson he needs to learn in just ONE season as a HC, U r mistaken. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all and all the years of FAN SUFFERING don’t mean squat when it comes to CMD’s progression into a decent head coach (or lack thereof, we’ll see).

My take on LSU... glad they won, kind of - ending Clemsons won streak yada yada. BUT look at the coaches and programs in the SEC West... the head winds making the SEC attractive to recruits (talent) are just getting stronger and the “best of the rest” are 17 points behind. There’s no reason UM shouldn’t be an ACC contender every year. Making the leap from also-ran conference contender to legit NC title contender is probably more difficult than it’s ever been. Ask OU...

I think LSU now is what Miami could have been IF we’d taken big risk and made a radical hire after Coker. I was a huge Randy Shannon fan & supporter (till I wasn’t), but hindsight being 20/20, that was our perfect moment to make a break with the past (adapt leading edge offense) while still being able to attract serious talent. Also the timing was before the domination of the SEC got so overwhelming to making recruiting against them as a conference close to impossible. Likewise, if Coker had made a hire/change like Oregon did he might have kept his job. That was an inflection point when return to national relevance was very possible.

raizecane

Joe Burrow throws for 16 TD's last season and follows that up with 60 this season.

DallasTX Cane

And have been a cup cake for longer than today’s players have been “foosball-conscious”...

HerbieIbis

D'Eriq King is in the portal. Bump worry about Costello or Brown, this is the dude Manny needs to go after and I mean yesterday.
Arkansas might have inside track because of Kendal Briles and a supposed desire to play in the SEC.
What killed Clemson was the cream puff schedule. They were lucky to get by OSU.
This conference that we play in the All Cup Cake hurts u more than it helps u in preparation against top tier teams. Yes we are a cup cake at present!.

HerbiIbis

I hope our switch to the spaRed propels us the way it did LSU on offense.
Good for coach OH. He deserved it and knocked that little ole Clemson out and secured our record of 34 straight.

Terrance M Sullivan

Thank U So Much CaneRock I really appreciate it.

HerbieIbis

The way we blocked, I doubt we could get a pass off against Clemson.

CaneWarrior

Hate to say but after watching first half, our level of playing is about ‘baby league’ compared to these two! We don’t belong in the same parking lot much less field as these guys.

CGNC

I want the Fins to trade up and draft Burrow but they will probably not do that and get Tua with the bad hip

The Herb

Live by the blitz u die by the blitz. Clemson's dee plays fast, the way we should play.

Beyond Basura

Also, VA. You do a pretty bad job of recruiting to Miami. Sup with that?! 😂

Beyond Basura

Man, Dabo is so great. Will go down as one of the GOATs.

VA Cane

I got to pull for Clemson...K'von Wallace #12 is my player....played for me 2 seasons....great kid will be drafted...will give me 4 kids in the NFL...he is tough as hell...came from the hoods of Richmond to me...he lived in a kill zone...parents wanted better...his folks knew Clelin Ferrells parents...they are distant kin....so they got him to me....he is a great kid...talked to him last night..he ready to hit!!!!

CGNC

58 and 86 - LOL.

VA - between the voice - monotone like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoon and the suit, dunno. He sure can coach though.

VA Cane

I am rooting for Miami....ooops.....I forgot we are not playing....
I just want a good game!!!

Saban dresses so bad....who dresses that clown?

Get on him CGNC!

Sorry to hear about your job situations Terrance & UMike, I'll say a prayer for y'all.

I am going to pick Clemson.

I'm going to pick LSU.

CGNC

Saban part of the team on ESPN - very boring voice, hard to listen to him. Needs to work on that if he wants to get into broadcasting

CGNC

Raize....which Tigers??? haha I am going Bayou Bengal. The battle of the Death Valley Tigers - both teams

raizecane

CGNC..... I hate to disagree with you, but I will be pulling for the Tigers.

CGNC

P,S, I lied above, there wan't much deliberation at all LOL

CGNC

Okay, NC game tonight. After much deliberation I am going for LSU - mainly because I like Joe Burrow and for the simple selfish fact that if Clemson wins there isn't much stopping them from breaking our 34 game FBS win streak. I think USC had the same win streak which ended thanks to Texas but is probably a moot point since they got in trouble and had some wins vacated. You have to go back to the 1950's and beyond to find anyone with more.

BigWindyCane1

I just read about the Coach Rhett Lashlee interview, and I remain cautiously optimistic.

Lashlee certainly knows what to say to get the recruits excited about coming to the U -- so far, so good.

I know we have been down this "new coach" road before, but I have no reason to doubt that Lashlee will get this thing turned around as long as CMD doesn't stand in his way.

Terrance M Sullivan

Thank You Old Skool I really appreciate it My friend!

86Cane

1. route running must be precise, accurate. 3rd and 6...you need to drive it 8 common sense thinking...fundamentals!

2. can you catch the ball in your hands, not chest? can you catch period.

3. No plays off like Randy Moss....run your route do your job every play.

4. Can you block? You have to...for runs and catches...no loafing...use speed...weight work to get bigger stronger...knock the hell out of people.

5. Are you fearless? Will you cross the middle take the hit...enjoy collisions!

6. Do you want to win? How bad do you want to win? Will you DIE to WIN if need be? IT MATTERS!

7. Will you do your job 110% every play, not whine complain quit sulk? Will you keep your mouth shut give it your all....kill to WIN?

Posted by: VA Cane | January 13, 2020 at 12:28 PM

UM WR responses to the above:

1. We don't need any stinking fundamentals. We just kinda run around in circles until the QB gets sacked.

2. DOINK!

3. No plays off? But coach we tired ova heya.

4. Yo, I'm a 5 star WR, I ain't paid to block.

5. Fearless? Hell we scared of our own shadows. I don't wanna get hit or anything.

6. Winning is cool and all but it ain't was it is all cracked up to be. I ain't dying for no football.

7. 110%? Child please! I'll give you maybe 70%. On a good day.

Now we gotta go take a nap. Catch you fans later...

BigWindyCane1

Sorry, I just checked. Brevin Jordan received a Midseason Freshman All-America recognition from ESPN, but was not Freshman All-American. The Canes have First Team Freshman All Americans 3 out of the last 4 years.

Richards - 2016
Donaldson - 2017
Rousseau - 2019

BigWindyCane1

Actually, Freshman All American for four straight years?

Richards - 2016
Donaldson - 2017
Jordan - 2018
Rousseau - 2019

Old Skool

I'm late to the party .. Terrance, I'm sorry to hear about your job loss. Hope you bounce back better than before with something that makes you excited to go to work every day.

BigWindyCane1

Rousseau was named to the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Freshman All-America Team.

Posted by: solarcane | January 13, 2020 at 03:15 PM

Great news! So does that mean the Canes have had a first team Freshman All American for three straight years?

Donaldson - 2017
Jordan - 2018
Rousseau - 2019

VA Cane

Yes Mahommes is really something...he can make all the throws...great arm....can move and run. Sees field really good. Great attitude. He is the model for the future of football...

VA Cane

He did a nice job....a little slack at the end...I think every kid just grew tired of the BS with the coaching, AD, BOT....very bad situation. Things getting a bit better though; some change. We need to lose some more coaches...Rumph has forgotten how to play...cannot recruit. ST guy still here?
DVD recruiting? Fire them all!

BigWindyCane1

Posted by: VA Cane | January 12, 2020 at 09:22 PM

VAC,
I agree with everything you said here about the commentators, and that Russell Wilson is unbelievable. Rogers was also good, but he also has a running game.

But the best QB I have seen in a while is Patrick Mahommes. He is on another level.

solarcane

Rousseau was named to the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Freshman All-America Team.

solarcane

I think an 18 year old kid in Clemson,Baton Rouge,Tuscaloosa,Norman,
Columbus,Athens, etc. has a lot less distractions than the same kid would have in Miami.

The kids that leave here and go to small towns where college football is all there is 24/7 365 seem to thrive maybe because they concentrate on being football players and not rock stars.

I have been to Athens a bunch of times,the music scene there is on par with anywhere, but the town really is pretty lame other wise,plus its like a blast furnace 8 months of the year.
It seems the most focused guys on Miami came from towns not named Miami,DJ Dallas,Osborn,Jordan,Shaq .

VA Cane

Probably help if we had a real QB instead of these prima donna babies....and a real aggressive athletic OL!

DVD recruiting assistant? Yikes....never cared for him as player....mr not hit someone!....T%his staff needs a lot more cleaning up....if you want to win!

VA Cane


I am not as concerned with height as I am with other aspects of WR.

1. route running must be precise, accurate. 3rd and 6...you need to drive it 8 common sense thinking...fundamentals!

2. can you catch the ball in your hands, not chest? can you catch period.

3. No plays off like Randy Moss....run your route do your job every play.

7. Will you do your job 110% every play, not whine complain quit sulk? Will you keep your mouth shut give it your all....kill to WIN?

If so I want you...if any questions about above.....leave now...I cannot use you and sure do not want you!!!

Just my way....but WE WIN OFTEN! WINNING IS ALL THAT MATTERS!!!

raizecane

So our 3 EE at the WR position are listed as 6'1", 6'0" and 5'10"

VA Cane

I also think Meek Manhole is not the man to bring competition back....not a bad DC here...but he failed in other places and was fired...should have been fired here...

nobody in the program understands how and why it worked here from 1980 to 2003..Rumph was here he should know..he just is here for a check shame on him....and why it is failing program now...the softest program in the nation with a bunch of crybaby entitled brats for the most part....a few have shown that effort..DJ gave it all every play....and Jimmy Murphy....the rest just laid down....even Rousseau seemed apathetical...what a shame....guys like SQ55 crying...wanna be with my guys....I really think many guys like losing...ya got to hate it with a passion to do something about it...Competition is what matters. Each year I tell old and new players...go out for what you want to play, but thats what you want...but may not be what I need...nobody has a position for me...you earn it....works for me...worked there....long ago...

alpine

i thought sully & soup have track & tennis covered?

what's the word?

VA Cane

Raize...not trying to relive the past....but HS JJ DE....made people compete to play....there were fights arguements late hits ....guys went after each other...no out of hate....the desire to WIN!!!

Ed Reed KD11 Shock J Vilma....keep naming them....enforced the desire to WIN....I'm hurt Dawg.....it has not been like that since those guys left....since 03....its an attitude "I got a U on my hat and green and orange...ok we win".....its so soft....this is the softest program in America....ALL LEVELS....nobody wants to fight for time...or fight on the fie3ld to WIN!!!

VA Cane

listening to Skip....an idiot...said Wilson cost them the game...on the 2 point try and last play....2 point try....Beastmode...bless his heart...went left in protection and there was no pressure that side.....he missed the protection call....last sack TE and back got beat...you could call it either way...great blitzing...or poor blocking...a bit of both to me....RW3 makes many many plays ....he carries that team...Balless and Marble both missed the blocking gaffs.....not surprising....Balless is an idiot...Marblemouth was a good receiving TE.....but he did not like to block too much....they both do not know what they are talking about....an idiot and a HOFer...both blind...by the way...Aikman pointed both plays out....a smart player....and person...the others...not so smart....turn it off too much noise for me..

congrats to JJ again...it meant a loty to him!

raizecane

VA - you are correct. Until we make the practices harder then the game itself, we will continue to be a .500 team

VA Cane

Good point raize....guys skipping practice smoking dope flashing $ creating porn laughing joking anything but caring about winning.

Football is only Fun at 1 point...WINNING. It is a hell of a reward great feeling! Getting there is WORK...and you have to have work ethic, commitment and want to win. Practice commitment lifting etc...is not fun...its work that you have to put in.

Nobody on the team is committed. Manhole barks like a Yorki...meek! Someone needs to get in some tail, chew some ass, and run a lot of these kids off. Take the damn schollys, remove the names, and throw the dame TO chain and rings out!!! That jewelry crap is a clown show and has no place in football. One thing matters:WINNING...at least for me. The rest is all social noise that gets in the way of winning!

VA Cane

I agree Herb, First Take is horrible...those 2 guys just take pre-scripted sides and argue....same with Undisputed....scripted arguments from 2 idiots.. Even Fox First Things First....Nick Wright looks a clown and talks a like a clown....and he has...along with Marble Mouth Shannon Sharpe....a very disturbing man crush on LeBron James. I have gotten where I watch Sportscenter for football news then when they go to other sports...are there any others? I go to news or something noy so stupid as these fake sports shows!..They should take First Take FTF and Undisputed off tv....its just painful noise.

Fox has the best football people Troy and Joe...then you got JJ, Howie, Terry, Gonzalez Strahan....guys who played coached in different eras....and really know the game.

All these reports coming out about lack of focus in the locker room is not a surprise. I knew something was up when you have players dancing on the sideline when they are down to an inferior opponents.

NO WAY that shit would have happened back in the day when we had leadership. You think Ed Reed would let you get away with that garbage????

plus, for me it's like those double-vision pictures: where you see either an old woman or two vases facing each other

the tulane thing'y is obviously a feisty piece of gooey soylent-wave

. . . but when i first looked at it, i thought it was a french-smurfy creature with large lips looking toward the left

you win, CGNC (but rated #4 kicker in his class?):

". . . Bubba was 9 of 19 on kicks (with several attempts from beyond 40 yards) in two years of high school football. That doesn’t sound very good, but ... high school long snappers and holders don’t help either.
Despite the poor stat line, he was the No. 4 rated kicker in his class by ESPN."

. . . but as a freshman, he looked the part and did decent; i thought he'd be killing it with a bit of experience . . . didn't think he'd become bubba bust'a

The Canes men basketball team picked a nice win today against Pitt. This season, the Canes must treasure any ACC win

YES!! 66-58
lykes fouled out 8 minutes into the 2nd half after spending a large portion of time in the 1st half on the bench; rodney miller out for long due to laceration above eye

waardenburg playing fantastic these days despite dealing with knee tendinitis (very painful) . . . he's finally found his inner dingo (australian wild dog, for those who don't keep their national geographic by the toilet)

mcgusty came to play today, too; beverly slowly growing up
