Bottom line: the coaches need to start winning some games — win and they will come!

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | February 11, 2020 at 10:06 PM

There IT is right there.

If CGNC's 7% bus comes in first in the Miami primary, we will struggle mightily once again.

If Terrance's 10% bus comes in we will see the worm turn in our favor and good things will follow.

If OUR 12% bus rolls into town in early December we will blow the doors off this place like you haven't see since, since, since, well shall I dare say, 2001?

We have one last chance to save Miami and Manny.

His name is Lashlee.

His OL coach is Justice.

His QB is King.

God, please we are begging U one last time...

BigWindyCane1

I see Franklin is ranked as the 186th prospect per 247 composite rankings. That ranking is an absolute joke!

I remember a time when a kid named Jacory brought half of the high school national championship team to town, all our problems were solved and for sure we would never ever look back.

We were younger then and didnt admit to ourselves other teams were getting just as good players but had way better coaches.

Now for the first time in forever we have what appear like real coaches, and a Hall of Fame mentor to guide them.

We have a qb that has proven himself and is said to have the work ethic we haven't seen in a qb since KD11.
If he teaches Van Dyke how to be a leader on and off the field we will have a quality qb room with the next starter plugged in and guys waiting their turn to run the show.

I like Reed telling parents if your kid doesn't want to compete don't come here. I think we will see a lot of guys get weeded out,and a few guys we want get passed over because they have attitude issues.

Manny has done a really good job of making positive changes.


BigWindyCane1

Aside from some of the WR prospects mentioned, Jacorey Brooks and Romello Brinson are two 2021 WR prospects I really like a lot. They have been making big game changing plays since 10th grade.

As for DBs, I like those Palmetto CBs Jason Marshall and Corey Collier. If Rumph can get one of them, I think he will have an elite corner, and Arte Burns little brother along with Markeviuos Brown or someone of that ilk, would give us a super elite CB class

solarcane

Windy,
right on about winning games will cure a lot of recruiting misses.
If we do have a shock the world offense, a sound defense and an at least average special team we will be on our way back, and kids will want to be here.

One thing about those Louisiana boys ain't to many by pass LSU. They don't leave the crib.

True! Winning helps, though. And now we have Ed Reed to help us recruit Louisiana and any other state we want

pb

This 2021 class is loaded with local talent. We've got all the offseason momentum in the world.

But this team has got to get it done on the field this year if we are ever going to get this thing turned around.

Like last year, 10 wins should be the basement. Even with the worst 3rd down offense and most dysfunctional QB room in the country we were ahead or within a TD of the lead in the 4th quarter of 90% of our games.

Expect the defense to be ferocious up front to lead the way and King has all the things we've dreamed about at QB in an offense everyone has been begging for.

Could be a really special year, BUT Manny has to prove it to me. Not on the bus yet.

What a great movie!

Paul Newman... the King of Cool!

I can see Ed Reed talking to some slackers in the lockerroom... "What we've got here is failure to communicate." 😠😂🤣

Yeah,
Him sitting in the Oh locker room telling those guys about failure to communicate.
The report is the fruits are bountiful in So.Flo. for the 2021 class at all positions, especially the lines.
Someone mentioned the Collier kid, I believe he is an FSU legacy and probably just like Branden Jennings, will probably go there. Bradley didn't have no pull with his kid brother.

ICONIC! What a great scene!

The list of great film roles is endless for Newman! Not to mention his sports car racing career!

Agree on all of the above.

Add Happy Days, Baretta, Starsky and Hutch, Barnaby Jones, Columbo, Mod Squad, CHIPS and many, many others.

Big Al
Loved the comment about getting zapped standing on the bare floor.

Remember "Florida Rooms" with Terrazzo floors and jalousie windows?

Terrazzo has the slip coefficient of Armour All you could do that Risky Business slide just trying to answer the phone.

Terrazzo being about 1000 times harder than stainless steel, and my older sister hating my guts raised many a bruise on my 10 year old body.
Thanks for the memory Big Al.

Funny how those floors have come full circle. A lot of high end new construction homes are doing custom variations of them.

LOVED this post!

our tv was in our florida room (lived in the chinese village for anyone knowing about the gables)

i don't know what a terrazzo floor is, but it's possible that's what i was standing on

what i loved about my parents was that they put a big old fluff sofa in that tv room, and i'd be jumping, falling and playing fantasy army on that big mamma sofa while watching tv
no couch potato; a coach mexican jumping bean


SOUP: some good ones you listed tv-wise: happy days & mod squad were two i enjoyed and had forgotten about
my mother loved barnaby, perry mason ad i love lucy, so i wound up checking them out sometimes too

Raize Good Job. I am sure The 7% Bus with CGNC, Solar and Aero will be a lively Bus.

Posted by: Terrance M Sullivan | February 11, 2020 at 04:16 PM

Raize, I believe the 7% bus serves Captain and Coke after 6. IJS

AeroCane

If I’m on the 7% bus, I would hope Capt Morgan and coke starts at noon!
I’m ok with mimosas and bloody Mary’s before noon!
Anyone care to join?

- thanks for the terrazzo-explanation = NOT terrazzo; just some kind of brown tile

- i'm only 63 solar, so no idea about "the rifleman" or "morris macklemore"

- "gunsmoke" was my fathers favorite, but i was already in bed

- but damn, RALPH RENICK!!! congrats to your brain cells, solar, on pulling that one up!! 6 p.m. evening news (local) if i remember right

- i'm assuming you meant to say "sporty" anette funicello?
. . . to this day, "M I C, see you next week, K E Y, why? because we like you,
M O U S E . . ." goes thru my brain every now & then, if someone says "see you"

Morris Maclomore would come on after the news but before the weather and describe this crappy team way down in Miami coached by this Andy Gustafston guy.

Ralph R would sign off every night with
"Good night, and may the good news be yours"

SOLAR FOR THE WIN!

Early 70's Shula and his Dolphins ruled Miami.

The Hurricanes were a HS team and every team's Homecoming dream. Chalk it up as an easy win!

Speaking of TV news...

Walter Cronise ring any bells?

He was the weatherman for WPLG Channel 10, for many years, and lived in my neighborhood in North Dade, (I went to high school at Miami Norland with his son.) He was a decent guy...
