Good luck to Pachtan at Colorado State. He definitely developed while he was here, and he is a starting-caliber DE in most programs. He deserves to play, but he isn’t going to take many snaps here

I regret to say that I have lost a LOT of money this month in the stock market. Ouch!

To set the record straight, I am NOT blaming THAT on Coach Laranaga. (Not yet anyway.)

Miami's win-loss record against other ACC teams this year is 7-13. Winning about 1/3 of your conference games is BELOW average. Finishing in the bottom third of the ACC is BELOW average. Consequently, . . .

BELOW Average team to begin with and BELOW average team to finish. What's the complaint. U don't recruit at an elite level, what do u expect.

speaking of sweeps, here's the latest vs. FSU (take it anywhere you can!) ...

CANES SWEEP SEMINOLES
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – In front of a lively home crowd, the University of Miami men's tennis team got right back to where they left off, following a two-week hiatus, securing its first top-25 victory of the 2020 spring campaign.

No. 31 Miami extended its winning streak to six matches, moving past No. 25 Florida State, 4-0, Sunday afternoon at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

"Great team win. It is always great to beat Florida State.," fourth-year head coach Aljosa Piric said. "This is one of the matches that we look forward to playing, because it is a big rivalry match regardless of rankings or implications. It is always going to be a tough one and our guys responded.
. . .
Overall, the win moved Miami to 3-0 in conference play for the second straight season, the first time the Hurricanes have accomplished the feat since joining the ACC prior to the 2004-05 season.

In addition, the Hurricanes have now won consecutive matches in their series with Florida State for the first time since winning five straight from 1995-2001. Sunday's sweep marked the 20th by Miami in the series history, while the Canes improved to 50-19 against the Seminoles.

The sweep also marked the eighth of the season for Miami and second in ACC play.

Miami will return to the Neil Schiff Tennis Center on Friday when the Hurricanes welcome second-ranked North Carolina to Coral Gables at 3 p.m.

I have been hearing about this recruit Savion Collins since 9th grade. LAURENCE Seymore is also the real deal. Seymore doesn’t have ideal height, but he is as nasty and strong as they come. And MacLaughlin is a true legitimate Offensive Tackle prospect with a very high ceiling.

The Canes have a really good class so far, and some phenomenal targets on our board. This could be our best recruiting class in years if we win like we are supposed to

orange 'n green in the vein

If you want to run him you have to do it with the sidtards worst nightmare, bad publicity, to wit; https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/recap?gameId=401168546

"The Orange fell to 56-54 in the ACC in the past six seasons."

Guess The Pimp's not the only one who needs to get dismissed?

"The Orange's 14 losses are the most in the regular season Boeheim has had in his 44 years at Syracuse."

But then again, UM basketball was picked to finish ninth preseason and ended up in a three way tie for 10th so they didn't underachieve any significantly more than everyone just about expected them to wasting a floor spot on the recruiting blunder from down under this season.

Still need three wins to end the season as a winning team if there's any postseason at all . . .

BigWindyCane1

Glad to see my Canes get a much deserved sweep against Pitt. They look good!

BigWindyCane1

Alpine,

I am willing to give Coach L the benefit of the doubt on the last two seasons, and I don’t think Coach L or his coaching staff could actually believe that Lykes can be compared to Shane Larkin (or even Angel Rodriguez). There is really no comparison.

Larkin is a true point guard that makes his teammates better. Larkin is a true point guard in both inclination and fact — Lykes isn’t. Plain and simple. Lykes is a scorer who looks for his shot first. I have seen him play for three years, and he is what he is. That isn’t Lykes’s game. Don’t make Lykes into something he isn’t or has no desire to be, and maybe he will thrive

If Larkin or Rodriguez had played point guard for this Canes team, they would be a better team immediately

AeroCane

ALPINE: the coach you're talking about was frank haith . . . he coached here 7 seasons and DID NOT HAVE ONE SINGLE WINNING SEASON in the ACC
. . . larranaga comes here and has a winning season in the ACC in 6 of his first 7 seasons
Alpine

You’re missing the point coach L; oops I mean alpine.
Haith could recruit, not coach; so because haith couldn’t do anything with these kids is not news; we needed a coach like coach L to get us to a higher level; once he maxed out after 4 or 5 years, we should of moved on; change while on top NOT at the bottom; this is the reasons our AD’s since Jankovich (rip) have pretty much sucked

Butthurt Schnelly

Nobody is gonna call out these players for worrying themselves and their own stats?? Winning is what you should be measured on.

We’re so eff’d next year.

"Yo ho, oh no, Laranagna needs to go!"
Who says so? Yes, me, nemo.

nemo2020

Sorry alpine, but your stats about Hamilton's record in the Big East are not now relevant, any more than Laranagna's record two decades ago at GMU.
You need to compare the respective records of Hamilton and Laranaga against other ACC teams during the last nine years. As a matter of fact, Laranagna's winning percentage during this period (slightly above 50 percent) is nothing to brag about - especially when we finished near the bottom of the ACC last year and this year too.

alpine

by the way, canes killed pit today, if you want to raise a broom on your flagpole

alpine

NEMO: "There are only a handful of ACC coaches (like Coach L) who have held their position for nine years of more. And among these coaches Laranaga has BY FAR the lowest winning percentage against other ACC teams - only about 50 percent."

ALPINE: careful of stats
- coach hamilton (who i DO LIKE!) coached here 10 seasons, including 9 in the Big East
- his overall record was only 144-147
- his Big East record: 73-87 over 9 seasons with only 3 winning seasons
(+ 1 Big East season title)

you gonna throw him under the stats-bus too?

alpine

oh, and regarding that year:

- the canes also won the 2013 ACC tourny championship becoming the first ACC school not named Duke or NC to win both the ACC regular season and tourny championships in the same season since 1974 (NC state)

. . . as my father never said: "put that in your pipe and smoke it"

alpine

well, maybe i have a few points to make right now . . .

NEMO: "Yeah, early in his tenure at UM a Laranaga coached team won the ACC championship. However, he did it with a team stocked with veteran players that he inherited from the prior coach (and not mainly with his own recruits)"

ALPINE: the coach you're talking about was frank haith . . . he coached here 7 seasons and DID NOT HAVE ONE SINGLE WINNING SEASON in the ACC
. . . larranaga comes here and has a winning season in the ACC in 6 of his first 7 seasons

- also, he recruited the key ingredient to the line-up: midget shane larkin
. . . after which, 2 years after taking over the team, he led them to the championship
. . . i guess you think haith would've done that? and every other coach tom, dick & harry? cause it's such an easy thing to do?

Laranaga is looking for a 5'6" high school prospect from Tasmania, or any "top prospect" from Archbishop Molloy H.S. in NYC, and/or another marginal transfer player from some other college or university) to come here and play basketball (on a losing team) in the ACC.

but i will post this:

WINDY: "Hamilton (even going back to his MIAMI Hurricanes tenure) has always been a coach that works his players hard and stresses conditioning and toughness. . . .
Nemo is also right that Coach L hasn’t gotten it done."

ALPINE: personally, what i like about the canes is that they have a lot of fight & toughness to them . . . let's look at OT games as an example of toughness:

- canes played 4 OT games, all in the ACC: they won 3 of them including the triple-OT game AT va tech

- lost in OT vs. a deep, FSU (#1-in-ACC); remember though, it was mid-january, where we were missing several players and ran out of gas

not bad for an out-of-condition, not-very-tough team!

alpine

lot of anti-larranaga talk on here and no one seems to understand why i have still like him
. . . next time there's a new blog, i'll be very happy to explain why!

That said, I will remain hopeful next season that Coach L will find a way to get his players to rebound better, defend better and pass the ball better.

It’s easier said than done, but those are the three areas where the Canes have suffered all season, and it starts with recruiting and ends with coaching. The Canes don’t have enough players who want to rebound and defend, and making Lykes play point guard is like fitting a square peg in a round hole. Lykes is at his best as a scorer, not a playmaker. Others on the roster should be the playmakers, whether it’s a guard, wing or big man out of the post.

Roach,
Your wife is very perceptive. I am not a big fan of Coach L’s assistant coaches. They don’t appear to help much in-game, and they can’t recruit. Frankly, I don’t think the Canes’ staff connect with recruits like Hamilton’s staff does, and Hamilton (even going back to his MIAMI Hurricanes tenure) has always been a coach that works his players hard and stresses conditioning and toughness. Hamilton definitely develops his players, and graduates his players, and can sell that to recruits and parents.

Nemo is also right that Coach L hasn’t gotten it done.

Alpine = old man larranga

roachcane77

I made the 4 hour drive across the state to Coral Gables to watch the basketball game last night. (A friend, and Syracuse fan, got some free tickets.) The campus looks great! (Although some of the new buildings under construction out front, the Lakeside Village, don't seem to "fit" archictecturallywise... ) Maybe when they're completed it will "work."

ANYWAY, a few observations from a non-basketball fan about the game:
LACKLUSTER, FLATFOOTED, SEEMINGLY WITHOUT A PLAN.

We had NUMEROUS opportunities to blow the game open, or put it away late, but just managed to stumble all over ourselves, chuck up meaningless bricks, let the shot-clock expire, or just turn it over, to keep the Orangemen in it.

The first half was like watching a girls middle-school game... just two teams moving up and down the floor with seemingly no gameplan, and very little skill. BORING! The media time-outs were FAR more interesting than the product on the floor from either Miami or Syracuse.

My wife even commented.... "Why are there so many coaches on Miami's sideline?... These guys all seem clueless."

My friend, (a Hall of Fame High School Basketball coach, who has the gym named after him on our campus), was also dumbfounded... It's difficult to believe that these players are playing D1 ball.

Neither team made any aggressive moves to the basket until the last minute of the game, and then a little bit in over-time. Up to that point, both teams were just "going through the motions."

Injuries or not, I don't see much future for our U BB program if last night's game was any example.

Congrats on the win, and to our Seniors, (it was Senior Night), but wow... didn't see ANY FIRE, or evidence of a game plan, or "plays." Uninspiring to say the least... JMHO.

Posted by: alpine | March 08, 2020 at 05:19 AM

Yeah, early in his tenure at UM a Laranaga coached team won the ACC championship. However, he did it with a team stocked with veteran players that he inherited from the prior coach (and not mainly with his own recruits).
TODAY, FSU clearly has a better men's basketball program than UM. Why? The reason is obvious. FSU gets better recruits BECAUSE FSU has a head coach who can successfully recruit better players. And what has Coach L done for us lately? UM has become a veritable bottom feeder in the ACC. Not good!
There are only a handful of ACC coaches (like Coach L) who have held their position for nine years of more. And among these coaches Laranaga has BY FAR the lowest winning percentage against other ACC teams - only about 50 percent. He has had more than enough time to build a better program. But he hasn't!
Old Coach L needs to heed the CDC warnings. At his age he should avoid crowds and stay home! In other words, he ought to retire NOW lest UM make that decision for him (hopefully) SOON.

Don't sugar coat the season. We finished with 7 wins and 13 losses in ACC play, near the bottom of the conference. This is not good; it's bad! Last year's season was bad too.
Laranaga has been head coach at UM for nine seasons and overall his winning record against other ACC teams is only about 50 percent - mediocre at best.
We ought to have a more competitive, and consistently better, men's basketball team - like so-called "football" schools ND and FSU. But that won't happen until UM "retires" Old Coach L and hires instead someone who can consistently recruit better players.

Aero,

You got me! IMHO, Lykes really hasn’t been a true point guard at any time. Lykes is good at getting his shot, but doesn’t excel at assisting others. I agree that coach L should move him so that he and the team are more successful.

***43. D’Eriq King, QB, Miami***

BigWindyCane1

Thanks Solar. I looked it up. Here are our players. Not sure if I would have ranked them in this order, but they definitely deserve to be on the list:

45. Gregory Rousseau, DL, Miami
Rousseau set the bar high for 2020 after recording 19.5 tackles for a loss, 15.5 sacks, and 54 overall tackles as a freshman last fall. Rousseau notched 12 of his sacks in ACC games, including four versus Florida State and two against Pitt. He should team with Temple transfer Quincy Roche to form one of the nation’s top defensive end combinations in college football for 2020.

3. D’Eriq King, QB, Miami
Miami utilized three quarterbacks last season, but the carousel under center will end with King coming to Coral Gables after transferring from Houston. Dynamic is the best way to sum up King’s career with the Cougars from 2016-19. The Texas native received playing time as a receiver in 2016 before moving back to quarterback in '17. King accounted for 1,639 total yards that year and delivered a monster all-around campaign the following season. Over 11 appearances for Houston, King accounted for 3,656 total yards and 50 overall scores. King took a redshirt season after playing in four games in 2019.

21. Quincy Roche, DE, Miami
Roche earned third-team All-America honors from Athlon Sports after recording 13 sacks and 19 tackles for a loss at Temple in 2019. With a year of eligibility remaining, Roche decided to test his skills at the Power 5 level and transferred to Miami. He should team with Gregory Rousseau (15.5 sacks in 2019) to form one of the nation’s top defensive end duos for 2020.

• huff and brooks are faster and more athletic than Pinckney
• bolden comes back strong
• etc etc
• manny grows a set and actually disciplines and strikes fear in these players

Huge is how you win in HS. You fall on people smaller than you. In college, where everybody is big, and strong and fast, that loses it's effectiveness. In the NFL you are TOAST.

Big, fat and slow is no way to go through life.

Big, lean and mean is another story.

Only $100 million is at risk so you should care.

I have seen Donaldson up close in high school and college, and he is talented and “huge!”

Oh my, is that what...oh never mind.

1. I am hoping Donaldson comes back lean and mean rather than the fat, slow blob he is

2. I’m still on the ‘manny needs to prove to me he can win bus before I jump
On the bandwagon’

1. Stop stealing my lines.

2. If you will not jump on the "bandwagon" how about REO Speedwagon?

Agree 💯!

Blake Baker says Jaelan Phillips got to Miami last year at 225 lbs and is now up to 264 lbs. That’s 40 pounds of muscle? I know Feeley works miracles, but WTF? Phillips posted a before and after photo on Twitter. Wow!

Aero,

A lean and mean Donaldson is all world, but a fat Donaldson is not. Hopefully, he returned for his Senior year to increase his potential NFL paycheck.

I have seen Donaldson up close in high school and college, and he is talented and “huge!” You can’t coach that. Donaldson has all the potential in the world, but he has eaten himself out of the NFL draft. IMHO, Feeley and CMD need to set weigh-in goals and metrics for him. They should threaten to suspend him if he doesn’t make his goals. It’s for his own good. They should do that for all the offensive linemen.

I also think Rivers can contribute. He could also stand to lose 15-20 pounds, and hit the weight room, but he also has talent and that is what our OL desperately needs.

Happy to see MacLaughlin committed. The Canes need to recruit tackles, and never allow OTs to leave South Florida like they have been recently

For Tony and the others tracking scholarship counts, CMD just awarded three to walkons

Big windy
Not to rain on your parade, but spring is when manny blows smoke up everyones asses to make us feel good until we play our first game!
Our OL sucks - they sucked last year and what has changed
I am hoping Donaldson comes back lean and mean rather than the fat, slow blob he is
And yes, I do like rivers but is really strong enough and quick enough for the college game?

They need to RS, either Clark or Nelson, if they can.

I see that OG Jakari Clark and OT Zion Nelson were working with the backups today, and CMD said that the OL looks good running the spread. OT/OG Rivers also looks like he can contribute this year, and Donaldson will be back in the Fall. Although I am concerned about Campbell at LT, I am feeling better about the OL as a whole already.

I haven't seen Keyshawn Smith practice live or perform in camps, but his video looks very very good. This appears to be a very nice late addition to the class by Lashlee
