Torn ACL for D'eriq... that sux

Old Skool

Here's your English update. Traveling around Manchester I couldn't help but notice all the fried chicken takeout joints. Apparently, the way to market a place like that is to associate it with a place in the US no matter whether the place is known for fried chicken or not.

KFC was of course of the originator but here you'll find Kansas Fried Chicken, New York Fried Chicken, Florida Fried Chicken, even Philadelphia Fried Chicken.

So what name has the greatest cache besides Kentucky? That would be Miami.
So far I've seen a Miami Fried Chicken, a Miami Crispy Fried Chicken and a Miami Spicy Fried Chicken.

The menus also include chips (fries -- potato chips would be "crisps") pizza and burgers. Most proclaim that their food is "halal", so I presume the stores are run by Arab proprietors.

Each time I come over I always manage to pick up a new word or phrase. This trip it's "bap" and "fly tipping". Despite its masturbatory sound, a bap is a simple meat sandwich on a bread roll. "Fly tipping" is much more colorful. That refers to dumping one's garbage from the car in a parking lot thereby (I presume) leaving a gratuity for the flies. I saw a sign in a grocery store parking lot with the warning "No Fly Tipping"

It's a new day. It's a new year.
Stop ranting (for a while) about Coach Diaz.
It's too late. The football season has ended, finally.
Now is the time for Canes fans to move on!

It's a new day. It's a new year.
Start ranting (right away) about Coach Larranaga.
It's not too early. The basketball season has begun, already.
Now is the time for Canes fans to pile on!

Hello all.....been so bz! Had to move from my place in the country to my wifes mom....her mom passed from Alhizhimers in July...I sold her moms house so we move again soon....our daughter is about to deliver 2nd grandchild end of January...and appraising.

Sorry to see D King get hurt....I would take 80 of him and beat KC Chiefs...that kid is all WIN! EFFORT! CALM! SMART! we did not quit like the NC game....but the penalties mistakes and fundamentals! as for the WRs...my 4 year old granddaughter catches better.....not all the blame....BUT...even with the bad penalties and dumb plays...you catch the balls ya shoulda...WE WIN!

People....there are bad calls in all aspects of life....we all see wrong things each day and we know it! While there were some missed calls..both ways..its an imperfect game...players coaches officials fans...are wrong at times!

As a long time player and coach...I hate them but can go back and see where we me and my guys made mistakes that really changed the game! I am not a blame game coach....I blame me and my guys for losing games by not doing our jobs...the zebras have never beaten me....

Fiesta Bowl..03...our Waterloo....get honest people it 2021.....that call was not the killer....the 17 points off turnovers, the OL breakdown......the lack of Killer Mindset ...Focus and fundamental breakdowns...players and coaches cost us #6!!.....the same problems......haunt us for 17 years.....FACT...boom...mike drops!

We did not quit..for a change...but we beat ourselves...another year...not horrible...but not my MO.....or any of ours...we expect...maybe we need to DEMAND more!!!

Happy New Yaer to all...celebrating today...eating good, warm, good football...my loving Mom, my rock would have been 91 today..Miss her but she is my inspiration to keep soaring in this life!!!
We need some changes in a lot of ways, but we do have some hope to improve!

God bless you all,
VAC

No dee coaches canned yet. I guess the excuse is we were missing 3 starters.

VA Cane


Hell we could have had 15 on D.....nobody executed fundamentals O D ST....until we get the little things...the important things right....we will be a happy 7-5 8-3 6-5 team going nowhere up or down anytime soon.....

In the back of my mind I 'd like to see a total housecleaning....I moved this past week about 35 miles...made a lot of decisions about a lot of possessions.....lot o stuff in the trash dump....or...CAN YOU say dumpster....FIRE????!!!!
What ya think KY? Got yer email....we will chat....
Lets try to get BETTER!

Happy New Year Spacers!!!

So Hillary and cam Harris coming back next year FYI

HerbieIbis

One thing u don't see in these 2 games, is dropped passes. What u do see is good tackling especially from CB's coming up to make plays. Obama's secondary don't miss to many tackles.

1. No instead you see players making plays and incredible catches even when covered.

2. Tackling is so pasee at UM, kinda like the 1980s.

I'll just leave this here ...

Florida coach Dan Mullen wasted little time identifying problem areas following the Gators’ worst defensive season in more than a hundred years.

Mullen fired secondary coaches Ron English and Torrian Gray, per reports from the Associated Press and 247Sports.

The 10th-ranked Gators (8-4) allowed 30.8 points a game in 2020, their most since giving up 41.2 over six games in 1917, and the secondary was a significant part of the problem.

English coached Florida’s safeties the past three seasons, and Gray coached cornerbacks the last two.

AeroCane

Manny sucks!
Can’t motivate nor get his team ready - ever!
Hasn’t effing fired rumph or Baker yet! What a loser!
Mullen is an imbecile but at least he made the moves (or started to) immediately after their bowl loss. What’s manny done? Make excuses and think of ways to not have his team ready for big games next season!

On that note: happy new year everyone

HerbieIbis

Manny doesn't make knee jerk decisions.

AeroCane

Herb
Lol / I hope that’s sarcasm

The Herb

Tom Hermman out at Texas.

Sarasota 'cane

If the Titans beat the Texans tomorrow (very likely) the Dolphins 1st round provisional pick from the Texans could move as high as #3!

Go Dolphins!

AeroCane

Sota
Correct
Do they trade down with someone who needs a QB? Pick the LT from Oregon? Or something else?
I say trade down - pick one of the WR’s from Bama or the WR from LSU, then with our second pick of the 1st round, pick up a pass rusher OR the Bama running back
Just my thoughts

The Herb

Grad transfer DeAndre Johnson, DEfrom Tenn. To da U.

AeroCane

Nice pick up Herb; now for a WR, CB and potentially a LB
As importantly: FiRE Baker and Rumph and force pope, Wiggins and cloud to transfer out!

HerbieIbis

Listening to Ivins and Lake, they don't think Manny will cut ties with Baker. They also seem to think Banda is going to Utah St. Really haven't heard one way or the other about Rumph.
Todd Stroud, maybe takes an off field position.
Let The Herb say this, Banda was one of our 2 best coaching recruiters besides Fields. I had said earlier that I the only way he stays, is that Manny will appoint him as DC, if Baker is canned. Well the writing is on the wall. Baker must be coming back. This sucks. Not that Banda is that great of a coach but where would we be without his recruiting tenacity? Who has Baker brought on board, Patke and we all know what Rumph brings to the recruiting game, which is basically nothing and he too is a good coach not great.
Patke, Rumph and Baker virtually bring nothing via recruiting.
If Manny doesn't make a move with DC, he might just be cutting his own throat. To many games this past year teams are zipping down the field and scoring and it seemed like we stayed behind. For the most part aside from UNC & Clemson, we were pretty tough in the 4th Qter. It shouldn't take 3 qters. To make changes. We don't even need to be playing any kind of zone or cover 2 or whatever, we get scorched.
All teams,including the teams that are loaded have a tough time of stopping the Spread, RPO but their depth of talent will win out in the end plus they have A-1 coaching.
We need to start recruiting everywhere. It's great that we recruit S. FLO. but it seems alot of these kids are overrated or that the ones we do lose are getting a hell of alot better coaching. Depth of talent will solve a lot of issues with entitlement, that goes on at Miami.
We have issues at LBing, WR & CB. With corner, it's depth, with LB, it's talent. With WR it's a go to guy. We have some talent but getting them to perform in game is another issue.
We now have no upper classmen at DE, except for the kid coming in from TENN. That side of the ball that had been a strength is now becoming a weakness.
The slate needs to be wiped clean on that side. We need dogged recruiters, period.
That is all.

"We need dogged recruiters, period."

Yup, yup, yup. For instance, that freshman RB from TX A&M last night, Devon Achane, also happens to be the HS Texas State 200 Meter Champion...

We need COACHES-WHO-CAN-COACH, and ELITE, HUNGRY ATHLETES for them to work with.

CGNC

Sarkisian to take over at Texas

CGNC

Herb talk about corners, Pat Surtain's son at Alabama.....wow.

nemo2020

Banda is gone.

Next coach out?

AeroCane

CGNC
Too bad about sarkisian - I was hoping the dolphins would get him as their OC
Banda is a HUGE loss - the only recruiter on the D side

AeroCane

Phins need receivers badly
Parker is a wussy, grant and Wilson are too injury prone
That pick six had nothing to do with Tua
We also need a new OC

Sarasota 'cane

Aero after watching the game today I couldn’t tell you who they should pick. This is a disaster. I’m not gonna throw Tua under the bus in his rookie year but Fitzpatrick has a better grasp of game right now and I think we’d still be balling if he was available.

Annnnnnnnnnd Tua throws a pick as I’m typing this...

Great...just great...

Grrrrrrrrr Dolphins...

VA Cane

Even though it was an 8-3 season, which is good for some teams even us....it is so much smoke and mirrors....you analyze the teams that were good in bowls, and the big 4 that made playoffs.....we are not even close to playing with them. We are about average...nothing more.

I would say clean house...a deep enema is needed at UM I would say fire Blake James...as a start...he sucks...every program is lacking...at least on the mens side...the Ladies teams are much better...and they are tougher than all the mens teams....CMD....is not a head coach at any major program....he is not the answer here....unless you want to finish 8-3 7-6 6-7 in some order year after year...I do not. However, there is nobody out there to hire when you fire everybody. Hermann could not do it with that huge budget and base of recruits he won 65% of his games and is out. There are no real good coaches out there who will leave a good job and come here for an average job....beaches weather clubs women fishing things to do....it matters not if you cannot compete...yes we win...but we have not competed in 17 years...and may never again. It like killing a hog in the old days...I remember my relatives slaughtering hogs in the 60s....a long slow bleed.....thats us 17 years of slow bleed and death.. I can hope for..but I do not see any real change or upswing any time soon. The Board, AD, coaches and players are all average and will never be any more for a long time....I hate being average...not my style...so now I hibernate until fall....spring game here means nothing there is not a lot of bright sparks...just another long slog to another fall...and another average year.
Hope DK gets well...out of the gate with Bama.....thats 0-1 right off!

This was VERY important.

Good get.

Sorry, but the ONLY good coaches I know are Roachcane77, VA Cane and CGNC.

ELITE atheletes are a dime a dozen. HUNGRY is a completely different story. HARD WORKING is very hard to find I am told.

Remember I said on here MANY times that I was AGAINST drafting Tua but thought I may have to eat my words and acknowledge I was wrong. Not any more?

The Herb

DeMarcus Vandyke going with Banda, another recruiter gone.
Who's left on staff besides Fields and Cooney who are above the norm recruiters. Likens is okay, Lashley has one job to do and that's get a QB. The Oh line coach ain't bad but the word ace has evaded us.
