Haha Epic Times!

No picture opportunity too small.....

86Cane

Terrance...if I could get a big box and put all of the great memories from our Canespace events and activities together in it, wrap it up and put a bow on it, I believe that it would be the greatest gift I have ever been given in my life.

Apart from Mrs. 86 of course, but other than that, yeah #2 for sure. Too many good times and happy memories to count!

Now about the 2020 team...

raizecane

No matter what happens on the field.....we know how to have fun off of it. At least before kickoff anyway.

86Cane

Well... I got myself a job :)

WICKED GOOD!

Raize...the pics I have of you having a good time are numerous and EPIC! But my favorite one is you with Howard Schnellenberger sitting together and shaking hands. That one is for the record books!

BigWindyCane1

Great photos! Those arm chair boys really know how to recruit a lot of talent! 🙂

86Cane

Wait until Solar and CGNC get a look at this blog.

The number of times we went on the road and "stole their women" (figuratively, not literally) was just of epic proportions. I have another dozen photos at least to prove it was a common occurence.

Good people, good times!

Apparently, Burrow admitted that OBJ did give SEC cash 💰 💵 to the LSU players after the CFB championship game 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I guess LSU finally got caught doing what we know happens all the time behind closed doors

I still remember us walking out of Clemson Death Valley together and watching you sweet talk yourself into the middle of a pack of Tiger Cheerleaders like you had know them for years.

Scoring is hard;

"Kameron McGusty arrived slightly ahead of Lykes as the Hurricanes' leading scorer (15.4) but finshed with two points on 1-for-9 shooting."

"Alonzo Highsmith won’t be hired in an administrative role with the University of Miami football program, despite a brief second flirtation with the idea, according to two sources."

"On special teams, behind the excellent play of Lou Hedley, UM was 30th in net punting (40.8) compared to 117th in 2018 (34.4). Behind K.J. Osborn’s No. 3 national ranking for punt returns (15.9 yards a return), UM was 10th overall this season (14.2), compared with third in 2018 (19.8)."

Hedley improved the punting....he is a trip but that's better than the past...hope we can improve...10th not bad in returns....but damn the kicking FG XP was horrible. Hope the new guy will make a difference.

Solar will get item in mail asap...got a feeling you will enjoy!!

Good Luck my man.

VA and Solar U Guys Rock I appreciate yall a Lot!

Read about, that could be a possibility this morning, about Zo not coming.
Also read read where, supposedly Manny & Blake had an about face on the idea. High dollar donors are pissed.
U know shyt runs down hill and The Herb sees it piling up around Mano. Probably didn't want Zo's nostrils pressed against his neck.
Same old thing.
Get dee fixed the offense sucked.
Get the Oh fixed the dee sucked, although that was a while ago.
Front office, can't their stuff together.
I guess one out of three ain't bad, when u suk.

Posted by: KYcane | January 16, 2020 at 04:37 PM

Makes way too much sense, therefore, it will never happen.

TonyCane

Given Highsmith’s NFL standing, why would he come to Miami for what is essentially an assistant coach position with no on field or personnel responsibilities? The Chief of Football Operations as it exists in several college programs is entirely that. It’s subservient to the HC.

To bring in Zo, Miami has to create a position with responsibilities that do not presently exist in CFB. Why would Manny cede his authority to Zo? What college coach would?

Realistically, the only way Zo should come would be as AD?

TheWordFromTheHerb

Who to believe but Mano supposedly axed the deal.
He has made his bed. He thinks the few changes he made, with adding a kicker, an OC and getting the discipline changed is going to make a world of difference. He has rolled the dice. Either he sinks or swims. The Herb says he better find a QB and it needs to be King or bust. Sitting on 8 or 9 ships and better hit da motha load.
Don't see no high schoolers who have us on the radar, who could provide immediate help, unless they are hiding under da rocks. Portal better be sweet. 4 cb's with a rookie in Clarke, is it at the present. We going spaaared in the spring, whose going to be defending the Wr's? I guess the safeties will be pulling double duty.
Should never be in this situation.
Hope he don't think anybody on this current roster, is the answer at QB.
William's should be shown the doe and the mental midget either goes to Wr or he too can catch the bus.
Manny needed to cut bait with a few more of those second rate crofters we have but hung onto to those boat anchors that will drag him down.

Herbieibis

Manny talks that culture BS all the time AND yet the dude sid nothing this year to change it. Players getting a way with what they want, not being held accountable. That's on his slack no discipline azz. Now u want to get tough,will see. This crap on the offensive side was going on. Before Mano took over. I guess it was sort of a Heartbreak Ridge moment. The inmates run the asylum. Gunny Highway showed the what was what!

Posted by: TonyCane | January 16, 2020 at 05:10 PM

Concise and correct, TC. Well written; well done!

The whole "Zo to the U" thing is ridiculous! There is no plausible way to create an impactful position for him without undermining either the head coach or the AD. And, given that BOTH of their jobs may be at risk in 2020, neither of them will accept any immediate loss of authority or responsibility. Hiring Zo might appease a few trustees and donors. And, perhaps, hiring Zo would "toss a bone" to the hungry fan base. But his (newly created) position - to be acceptable to both CMD and AD BJ - would mainly be symbolic. So, who needs him?

I agree 💯❗️The pressure is on for CMD and BJ. They won’t be able to rinse and repeat again. They either show Remarkable improvement next season in actual win-loss record, or they will not finish the season.

If CMD doesn’t start strong and finish strong with this weak ACC Coastal schedule, Lashlee will be the interim HC before the end of the season.

Either way, the misery will end son—one way or another

When Mandy goes 12-0 in 2020 all will be redeemed.

I have no idea why I just said that but it sounded fun?

I hope he does go 12 and Oh, so I can stop bitching!!
That's part of what makes a true Arm Chair Boyz!!.

TonyCane

2021 WR Fred Eaford (3 star) has decommitted. Meanwhile Avantae Williams, CB Isaiah Dunson, and QB D’Eriq King are visitng this weekend.

Herbieibis

It would be better if those 3 came in the weekend before signing day but I got to thinking, when's the last time that weekend, has brought us any good fortune?
I don't care what Mano has to do just get King to come here. We just need one dam break.

The Herb

Man, Coach Oh went to bed, with ship in hand and woke a lonely man.
No loyalty, once u get a ship or a super bowl, it's time to cash in.
Aranda gone.
Brady gone.
Just about every draft able Jr. Gone.
Yeah they got talent, but they will take some lumps on the payback trail.

2 important bb games; 2 bad losses

bb season not gonna bring us out of football doldrums

AeroCane

Maybe lashee told him to take a hike
You’re the 106th ranked WR and you’re gonna decommitt
I’d withdraw his scholarship and say sayanora
Now let’s get a 4 star who will practice and play hard!

Coach L can go take a hike as well! I’m over him (been for 2 or so years now) - however, Blake would eff up the new hire anyway

AeroCane

Sorry Al
I don’t follow basketball much and especially not women’s BB - that’s just me as there is only so much time and I’m definitely not gonna waste it watching bad Miami men’s BB nor women’s at all
Since the end of the Coker era, I’ve not lived and died by our bad and sometimes embarrassing football team either. And while I’m on the topic, dimare should of been brought on about 3 to 5 years earlier as Morris was done way before he sucked money from us and stayed!
Problem is we have not had a strong or good AD since Jankovich

The Herb

Well the 2021 class is picking right up where the 2020 left off, with another decommit, although The Herb thought offering Eaford could of came much later or not at all.
I guess we'll see if we can match this years total of 19.

25 is all. There are other parameters but u have to pull up them bylaws. Some could count towards last year, if u didn't feel your quota but with the portal and players jumping in at all times of the year, it can get confusing..
It's like an up hill battle to get to 85. I think before these latest defections we were at like 75 or 76.

The new OC Lashlee sure is saying all the right things! He will get the players excited, and I like the new OL coach Garin Justice. I like GJ’s background as a player, OC and OL coach. He is young and energetic, and wants to be OC or HC at a major program. I just hope CMD stays out of their way, and let them coach

2 good articles that detail the type of problems larranaga has to work thru, since being ncaa/fbi-screwed (i can read on my ipad; can not open here on my compi w/o subscription ... maybe someone else can post links):

How Miami is being affected by — and trying to solve — its never-ending depth issue
JANUARY 17, 2020 4:56 PM

Canes desperately need frontcourt help. Could a seldom-used freshman be ready to chip in?
JANUARY 17, 2020 4:12 PM

alpine

another thing:
- as i've said several times, i think manny will eventually be a good head coach, despite all his growing pains
. . . that said, one thing i truly dislike about him, is his "blame game" pressers

- coach L NEVER does that, despite having a suitcase full of complaints that he could open & display
. . . he is a class act working as much magic as he can, just rolling up his sleeves and working with what he has
. . . and the last couple years, that hasn't been much

- might there be as accomplished a coach as larranaga be willing to take over the miami program? would blake james be able to find such a person?

. . . i'm sceptical about the answers to the above
. . . and i also think it's too early to show him the door

UMike

There is a way around the 25 limit, I think it has to do with the EE from the previous class. Like if we had 5 EE's we can now sign 30... something like that. I might not be spot on, but I know you can go over 25 and it's because the EE's.

AeroCane

Any updates on the key visitors this weekend?
I sure hope they don’t bring them to the BB game - lol!

"The ugly: Miami winning the ACC Coastal

The Hurricanes had as many division titles in 2019 as it had points in the Independence Bowl loss to Louisiana Tech -- zero. I didn't see that coming in August when we made our picks. I had Manny Diaz going 10-2 and winning the ACC Coastal in his first season with the program before losing to Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. Maybe they should learn how to block and find a quarterback who can complete forward passes? Just a thought."

Slurp squad defense force, activate!

TJL

So Bama has to cut players?

"The Tide currently has 90 scholarship players signed for the upcoming 2020 season -- five over the limit"

The Herb

Aero,
2 waste of times and a hopeful.
Most of the writers have William's joining his Cuz at Florida. I don't know how many more times he's going to visit. Came quit a bit in the Fall.
Dunston supposedly is a Texas lean.
King is who we need and we have a shot but when was the last time we had some great news these last few weeks before signing day?
Hope Rumph not taking the lead on those 2 DB's, is all I can say.

The Herb

I guess Saddlewood was right about the tudes, when he visited last year and made the comment the reason he didn't end up at Miami is because losing didn't seem to matter to some of the players. He didn't like the vibe. So our loss was Oaklahoma's gain.

UMike

I think King is leaning towards Arkansas.

(pls play them close, like you are at the moment)

The Herb

UMike,
In the beginning Arky was said to be the destination because of Briles. Going to Maryland today. I don't think he is visiting Ark. Frank's is visiting their. I think us and Maryland are the only 2 places he is going to.
This is the last week to register for classes, so his decision will have to be quick or wait until summer.

alpine

21-21 under 4 minutes to go in 1st half

canes alternately brilliant and clownish on offense
. . . very good defense, though

frosh walker finally sees quite a few minutes; brings some good energy
. . . unfortuantely he misses every basket, no matter how open

alpine

31-30 fsu at the half

. . . heartbreak last minute as waardenburg's dunk misses, riochets deep into fsu hands to give them an easy bucket = a 4-pt swing

. . . immediately, lykes gets a foul and, though he had made 23 straight FT's, he misses both

. . . typical of the way it's been the entire game
. . . and yet, the canes are miraculously down by only 1 to ACC leader and #9 in the nation FSU

BigWindyCane1

If it’s just us and Maryland, we have at last a punchers chance to get D’Erique King. Maryland is active in recruiting down here, and they have the right offense. But the Canes might be the better fit

Terrance M Sullivan

I honestly want Chase Brice from Clemson to come here. Dude Got Moxie and is very mature and from a winning culture. I would love to have King as well but I would priorize Brice. I would let 15, 18, and 5 find other destinations. And I would then have a QB room of Brice, Matocha, TVD, if we luck up with King. Then we can Ride. Just My Thoughts.
