If King puts up stats like he did in 2018, he will be ACC offensive player of the year (no disrespect to Etienne or LAWRENCE) , and the Canes will have a legitimate shot to win the ACC.

No one in the ACC puts up stats like that

TheHerb

Hell to DA YES. Thank Jesus!!
2 of the things The Herb wished for, The SPAaaaRed and King.
Is worm finally turning?
Now, let's get a couple protectors or else the King will be running for his life.
Let Stubbs head off to pedifile U.
Get a couple CB'S.
Another WR and maybe we get this mess heading in the right direction.
No use wishing anymore for Patke or The no recruiting Rumph to be gone, it just ain't happening. Can't get everything u want.
If Baker goes, Manny just needs to be his own coordinator and bring in a STC.

BigWindyCane1

In 2018, D’Eriq King had 2982 yards passing on 63% completions with 36 TDs, 6 INTs, and just 14 sacks, to go along with 111 carries for 674 yards and 14 TDs!

The Canes haven’t had a QB that productive. The skill position players should be salivating. That 12% bus that Soup cranked up is starting to rev its engines

BigWindyCane1

I am really loving what I am seeing as far as the offensive side of the ball is concerned. A great OC hire, a great OL coach hire and a great, proven QB all in the span of a month! It’s lining up perfectly.

Two more things would put a cherry on top of the offensive changes: 1-2 OL grad transfers and CMD stays out of the way.

Those things happen and we will have a prolific offense.

Miami Wide Receiver Coach Taylor Stubblefield to Penn State.

Good for him....when you seen them pass alot....then again...when you seen us just pass decently? we are allergic to the proper way to block and execute a simple forward pass...

TC THE STAT MAN!
Another talent...great quote TC....I remember when I was a young man 12 or so....listening to R n R, smoking other than cigs, reading Tolkien and Castaneda.....very great stuff very old writings...but lots of great thoughts...man was a genius...I read all the books...never have seen the movies...

This one sure fits us TC!....nice my friend!

"It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end ... because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing ... this shadow. Even darkness must pass."

Blurb from the Tampa Bay Times regarding Shaquille Quarterman's and Michael Pinckney's play at the East West Shrine game

Had the Hurricanes had a better season, these guys may have had a bigger profile. But Quarterman and Pinckney were at a different level Saturday and should have gotten an invite to a better all-star game.

"Walk-on linebacker Ryan Ragone, a Houston native, hosted King on his visit"

Anyone have access to Canesport that knows the details of this article:

Source close to D'Eriq King: Expect good news for Miami ... huge addition to the Miami Hurricanes program who can revitalize the offense immediately Wow!

I hope this is true!

CGNC

OK LOL, never mind I read that "article" - From a kid who never had to:

1) raise a kid/family
2) have real bills
3) thinks he is the smartest kid in the room
4) could never beat out Malik Rosier

So he had to get up at 5:00 a.m. boo hoo - not a bad gig for free school. The best part - is he thnks he will be a success - well maybe if you wash that "L" off your forehead because it doesn't go over well in interviews

Happy Sunday all. Looking forward t the NFL games today.

LOL what did "I-shot-the-Shirreffs" write? It couldn't have been much since he was back-up to Rosier

VA Cane

That is all.

I read this "article" by a former UM player/FLOP weakling. Agreed 58, this guy has no clue what life is all about. I worked, played football and graduated on time in 1976-77 to 79-80...and agree; this is what is wrong with UM players. This guy has a bad attitude...and he never could play a lick. Why would you recruit such a loser?

This is the "leadership" of the future....

The Cost/Benefit of Being A Student Athlete - BY EVAN SHIRREFFS

Posted by: TonyCane | January 18, 2020 at 09:03 PM

That is some of the weakest sauce I have ever read.

Not even going to go into critiquing because it is not worth the time or effort. But it reveals even MORE reason why the mentality and attitude of UM players needs to change 180 degrees.

That is all.

BigWindyCane1

Looks like JW can’t transfer to Kentucky anymore. Joey Gatewood, the four star recruit from Bertram Trail in Jacksonville is headed there.

I recall him in high school, and Gatewood was pretty good QB with great tools. For some reason, Bartram Trail rotated QBs, but they made it to the state championship but lost to Venice.

JW has no chance at beating Gatewood out. JW is running out of time if he wants to transfer and participate in Spring football somewhere else

Don't know if true, but DA King supposedly cancelled his visit to Mary Land.
This will make The Herb very happy. Mentioned the dude before he jumped in the portal.
No matter what the OH will be better BUT we need some Prime A-1 beef up front. This offense will automatically help the helpless out but we need talent, not projects. Nelson is a project who by no fault of his own had to play. He did the best he could. Ain't to many 285 pounders starting at tackle. Most in the 310 and above range.
Now let Penn State take Stubbs off our hands and find someone who can teach route running 101. These Db's have been like flex seal on our WR'S long enough.

TonyCane

Tsully,

we need to demand Williams Porboy and Martell be SENT packing....tell them no wscholly this year you suck get out. I cannot imagine Motocha being real good, but you need a backup. These 3 guys are f**ked up....crybaby whiner williams....pornboy money boy Perry....and take a leave of absence excuse boy Martell....got to go now...hell I wish Manhole would enter the portal too...make Lashley HC fire BJ and make High AD....then fire the damn board too....hate em all!!!!

Where is my dumpster fire?

Posted by: VA Cane | January 18, 2020 at 06:27 PM

If King come that leaves us with 6 scholarship QBs. At worst, we lose two - Jarren and Perry. Jarren Williams has three years of eligibility left, N'Kosi has two. I think Tate is likely to stay and try to beat out King.

VA Cane

Thanks Tsulley you are as well!

Maybe they should learn how to block and find a quarterback who can complete forward passes? Just a thought."

Excellent point....kind of like fundamentals of the game eh?

OL that cannot block and QBs who cannot complete passes...and neither group can f**king think?

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.

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

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

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

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.

UMike

I think King is leaning towards Arkansas.

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.

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.

TJL

So Bama has to cut players?

https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-end-of-year-accountability-the-good-bad-and-ugly-of-2019-predictions/

"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!

AeroCane

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

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.

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

alpine

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):

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

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.

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!
