Sum big boys wanted Manny and Blake gone. I guess Manny is going to have to relish this pressure for the next year. No need to take a breathe or sit. I betcha there won't be no taking crap and babying players no MO! Leave the tudes at the door.

solarcane

Sully right on.
Manny hired all the guys he is firing
He made the mess, but he has the guts to make changes, I think we are better off than if he fired Enos mid season and hired an out of work OC to finish the season.

I am watching CGNC and OGV a lot closer, they seemed to smell out kaa kaa a lot quicker than the rest of us.

solarcane

The more I read about "Lash" the more convinced I am Williams will never get the ball out quick enough to attack with this offense even playing in shotgun. I think you are gonna have to read the defense a lot quicker than Jarren is used to.

Jeff Thomas may be kicking himself in the ass by mid season next year.
SMUs leading receiver had 164 targets last year.

alpine

don't see any of this info you all are talking about
. . . except the lashlee hire
. . . hope it's from good sources

Herbieibis

Bring in Trooper, Tosh and Corey or any combo to coach and Definitely recruit. Got to pay to play with the big boyz!

More breaking news: Rumph and Patke are OUT, I repeat both are OUT
Posted by: IraqiCane | January 04, 2020 at 01:22 PM

And just like that, they are GONE!

Dannyboycane corrected himself at 3:30.

“ OK have to update some info here. I erred when I said Rumph and Patke are out. That is NOT the case. The following is via Harris:

Rumph and Patke are staying.
Barry left last week
Stubbs is OUT but they haven't announced it yet and likely won’t until next week.”

One has to love this time of year

Go Canes!!

I hope you all realize Danny Boy Cane is not well mentally and is constantly being trolled by people into believing the craziest things you'll ever read.

Remember back in the day when he broke the story that Gruden was coming but was being forced to keep D'Nofrio as DC as a cost saving measure?

Please don't believe anything that poor guy says.

Zo is going to be the next head of football operations at #Miami. This was Blake’s call to make the move. Manny had no say in this.

If Blake overruled CMD on this, then I definitely respect that. Can’t let politics continue to ruin out program. CMD needs a lot of help, whether he knows it or not. Now, with Lashlee here, I get the feeling that Blake shelled out $1-1.5 million to get him here. If so, I have to give Blake credit where it is due. He recognized that CMD isn’t ready, and he is putting some pieces around him to make this team better

BigWindyCane1

Guy's like Strong and Leavitt could mentor Manny.

Go 'canes!

‘Sota,
I love the idea of bringing in Strong or Leavitt to mentor CMD. He doesn’t have it YET, although I love that Blake helped him by bringing in Lashlee and Highsmith.

Leavitt and Strong can flat out coach some defense. I would love to have one of them replace Baker

Although Rumph and Patke are staying, it’s great to hear that Subblefield and Baker are leaving. I will take that trade any day! Rumph is obviously not an elite recruiter, but he coaches his CBs up. Also, a few more wins during the season will help him recruit better.

I have seen them both work camps. Patke is really invisible as far as coaching up campers. I wasn’t impressed, but at least he tries to recruit them.

Rumph does really coach up the campers, but IMHO, Rumph is also uneccessarily very hard on campers, and I even saw him scold campers for hanging out at the Gatorade tent too long. It’s old school effective coaching, but is there really a need to chastise or discipline prospects who have multiple options BEFORE they sign an LOI? I think that could be part of his recruiting problems.

I'm out!

You mean Barry? Haven’t heard Manny is getting rid of his BFF Baker

BigWindyCane1

KY,
Sorry, I meant Barry. I think we all have seen enough to know it’s time to turn the page and get a better OL coach.

Hell I’d even take ole Art Kehoe again

Herbieibis

If Manure thinks there is nothing wrong on the defensive side, especially with Patke, he really is clueless. If we played against any of the top 4 from last weekend or Bama we would get lambasted. The defense is good for the Acc but hierarchy, the top 10 nah. Aside from Ruesau, no dominate players.

Herbiibis

U guys need to head over to Canesinsight and read what D money found out about a meeting held yesterday between big boosters and Jake Blames. Big Money offered to make changes and also booster offered to pay Highsmith's salary for 2 years and Blake turned it down. Now the story is Highsmith talking with Oregon and is expected not to come. WTF. Blake wanted Highsmith basically as a paper pusher.

Canes4us

If we loose the first game to Temple. I want both Blake James and Manny Diaz fired!!!

ColaCane

Old news Herbie, Zo is going to Oregon and Mario!

solarcane

Go Canes beat Duke! ESPN 8 PM

AeroCane

Herb
If they are ‘big boosters’ and James blows them off, why don’t they effing fire his butt (or work towards firing him)?

roachcane77

Manny & Blake are the smartest men in the room. They don't need any more outside help... OBVIOUSLY!!!

Highsmith would be of NO help, and Baker, Patke, and Barry are all the BEST coaches out there! Why look for anyone else?
These current coaches and AD have accomplished SO MUCH already, and gotten the MOST out of all of our players, and developed them to an elite standard!
No more oversight or help needed, dammit!

Lashlee was only hired to save their a$$es from being fired immediately.

I'm with Terrance, I'll believe it when I see it... (around next Thanksgiving... ) We are still in the hands of losers until they prove otherwise.

Posted by: Herbiibis | January 04, 2020 at 06:44 PM

It’s official: CMD and Blake James are on the hot seat. Win or go home. Next season will be a pressure cooker. We obviously aren’t interested in being an elite football program. Based on this, IMHO, CMD needs to reach 8-5 to barely save his job. If the Canes are 3-3 at midseason, CMD is gone. Vault that!

roachcane77

We "Armchair Boyz" OBVIOUSLY know nothing.

The BOT, AD, and Head Coach have this WELL UNDER CONTROL!

Schnelly

Some of you folks are funny. Manny does something slightly positive and you all start giving him a pass like he isn’t the worst UM Head Coach in our lifetime. And now we’re annointing this Lashlee guy as our saving grace as if our team isn’t full of crappy players and sh*ty coaches.

BigWindyCane1

Canes men basketball on ESPN prime time. Not fairing so well due to the son of a former Cane (Vernon Carey). Canes hung in there at the beginning of the game, but Duke has been pulling away in the second half.

If that CaneInsight is true, that a
Blake James turned down Zo, he needs to be run out of town.

From the Sentinel:

If you thought losing to Florida International, Duke and Louisiana Tech brought the merciful end to Miami’s season, look again. There’s a civil war inside the program that says the ugliness didn’t stop when the season did.

Board of Trustee members and big boosters are beyond upset. They’re pounding tables, threatening change — and want Highsmith hired, pronto, because they don’t trust James or Diaz to succeed without help. And why should they trust them? What has either done to inspire answers?"

From the Herald

Several trustees and boosters have complained to James, and one trustee said Saturday: “The trustees are up in arms, very upset about football. Blake and Manny are on notice.”

So THAT'S the problem! Why didn't somebody just say so?

86Cane

Trustees are "up in arms"?

From what I see in the news it only takes one properly deployed drone to effect massive change, but hey, that's just what I see in the news.

So now about those Miami Dolphins...Ryan Tannehill, the former Dolphins QB who wasn't good enough so they let him go just led the Tennessee Titans to a playoff win over the defending Super Bowl Champs New Englnd Patriots and some QB named Brady.

Now just imagine that?

CGNC

Tanny! Happy for him.

So there is hope? If true, CMD and Blake are on the hot seat. They won’t last next season without showing some progress

BigWindyCane1

It’s good to see Tannehill get a playoff win (against Bellicheck and Brady of all people), although it helps to have that Titans defense, that offensive line and Derrick Henry backing you up. 8-15 for 72 yards isn’t great, but he made the plays he had to. This may be as far as the Titans go, but it’s a great win for Tannehill.

getting caught up on the blog
. . . saw the above post and am wondering if we're reading the same blog
. . . all i saw was a bit of mild positivity due to false reports of multiple cane-coach-firings + false highsmith-hiring report
. . . i have seen literally ZERO get-out-of-jail passes being given to manny


that said, if there's not at least a slight mona lisa smile from the lashlee hire, then why be a canes fan at all?

UMike

Soup, sent. I previously sent to the canespace email lol

alpine

does anyone remember the feeling after the huge win over notre dame in 2017 (i think that was the year)?! that feeling of kick-ass relevance?!

and it ended up simply being smoke & mirrors

geez

nemo2020

Where are all the Coach L fans this morning?
UM played # 2 Duke last night at home on ESPN. And we only lost by (only) 33 points. Our best player, Chris "Mighty Mouse" Lykes, made 2 of 15 shots. Our rebounding and team defense was largely nonexistent.
Our next game is Tuesday against # 7 L'ville, which lost yesterday to FSU by 13 points. Hopefully, we won't lose to the Cardinals by 13 points (or more).

Killerbeez41

The thing that a lot of you guys on here don't realize is that the ENTIRE offensive staff was dismissed. New staff comes in and out offense is still not up to par. What was the difference. The same damn kids on the team from a year ago. The defense got some new coaches. Now the defense looks BLAH especially in the secondary...Did you not see who we had and how they were playing? John's and Joe's are better than X's and O's. Lashlee will need time to develop and implement. Hopefully he can spark and these kids can pick it up and run with it. Also sounds like some panicking may be occuring in house. Guys are feeling the pressure of sinking and will do stupid things to survive. We shall see who has the fortitude under pressure.

Posted by: alpine | January 05, 2020 at 04:19 AM

💯! No one can dispute that Lashlee was a great hire — since it is clear CMD will be here to start the 2020 football season, we all are all hopeful that CMD will learn from his horrendous mistakes and will grow into a better coach, because we know he isn’t a good coach right now.

We shall see how this Lashlee hire plays out next season. The schedule sets up very nicely for the Canes next season. The great thing about this hire is that if CMD doesn’t improve, IMHO, this will be his last season

86Cane

Good post Killer.

It is always a combination of coaching AND players that lead to success or failure. But it still comes down to the coaches to either recruit the right players or better players and then to coach them up to maximize their talent and then put them in the best possible position to utilize the skill sets.

If the team fails the right guard or strong safety is not getting fired. The head caoch is.

It has always been this way and will always be this way.

86Cane

UMike...got it.

CGNC

Killerbeez: LOL we know that. The entire offensive staff was dismissed and replaced with one that was worse. If there are any divas on the team, they need to hit the transfer portal and the coaches should identify those players. do you think Saban would tolerate it? I think the horrific offensive play trickled down to the defense. In the end Mandy lost the team, especially after his social media indicating the new recruits "will fix this". What does that say to your current players that you recruited?

I don't blame Diaz too much - he should never have been hired for this job - didn't need to get his HC start at a P5 school. He is in over his head. This falls on Blake James.

I hope Lashlee does well, we are so at the bottom, improvement should not take long :-)

I do. I was there sitting in the middle of Notre Dame fans. I thought that possibly I was wrong on being against the Richt hire. But nope.
