I will say one thing: Many people are mistaken that this current state of affairs we find ourselves in is all about one man. But is about much, much larger issues than that. Even when the one man goes away all things will not be made right instantly or even soon or maybe ever. But time will tell and I for one hopes that our Country heals.

just a quick note to say: i don't talk to anyone who thinks this is all about one man
. . . he is seen more as the "full bloom" of many things that have been happening over time; the large flower you focus on, knowing there is a whole bush and root system that led to that blossoming

nostalgic for the days of Butthurt PBspace?

thanks for the thoughts 86....I am not taking a side...if any for the Common Man Everyman.....its kind of like Rome burns while the many so called leaders fiddle.....we are the source of power...all groups who really work...all parties peoples and beliefs....and all of our concerns are overlooked or go unoticed....by the people in power....who have forgotten We The People....are the source of power!!!

86Cane

Alpine...you and I must be talking to all different people, because a lot of people I talk to or see on social media think that this IS about one man when it is not. It is about this:

86 - i agree, we're talking to different people
. . . and i know this isn't the "open opinion blog", so i'll leave off now

- just got back from my 1st vaccination (cause my wife is in danger and i'm care-giver); next one in 3 weeks
. . . then a bit of freedom

- to tell the truth, i think that after the health workers, etc. get the shots, (+ younger-than-ancient in danger due to conditions like asthma), the next ones to get vaccinated should be kids & teens, so they can go back to school and start having a normal life again; then college students, ...
and at the end of the list should be those with alzheimers & demenz or over the age of, i don't know, 85 or 90 ... jmo

g'nite!

Finally found a way not to choke it away in the last two minutes.

Not time to bury that casket on 2021 season just yet . . .

AeroCane

T-Rob hired as DB coach (safeties and CB)
Great hire but totally useless if baker remains the DC

oooh, nice game! (had to wait for the replay)
. . . the canes took out a good team today, though still missing players

- and yes, hope the casket morphs into a cascade (of W's)

The Herb

Well we finally have someone who can recruit. They thought he maybe holding out for LSU.
Heard all kind of stuff lately about Dee coaches but the one name nobody hardly mentions is Patke.
All the coaches are on vacation. Baker and Patke are useless.
We should know by the end of this coming week.
Manny needs to go hard for Partridge. Jess Simpson's name has been coming up.
We need a good LB coach.

TJL

I read Bama is practicing at green tree

305 Profhit

Rumblings about Bakes thru Da Grapevine. Might get our wish. Remember just grapevine news.

VA Cane

Baker and Patke just do not cut it...the D went from a strength to a weakness....looked very bad last few games. Not being rude; they got to go. We have never gotten that balance between O D and ST...hence pretty irrelevant since the Fiesta Fiasco in 2003.....you have to build it with many different kinds of players...from 5 Star to no star grunts...Who want to show they can play...that was us....key here is coaching the talent Some guys have shown extreme development...but you coach them up just like you coach the kid who nobody wants.....you coach them all....and we are not coaching anybody in my book. That's where it starts...the adult coach developing the young men....it works if ya work it!!!!

Yup, yup, yup! πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―

VA Cane

Thats how I do it roach coach....I am sure you do too....my guys...all my guys get all my attention....nobody is not coached on my teams...I am not sure who...or if...we are coaching anyone. A lot of people like the title in actuality not everyone fits the title...we got a lot like that!!!!!

Mike Harley coming back for another year

Posted by: toledocane | January 10, 2021 at 03:53 PM

More good news, I can't stand any more! LOL

roachcane77

Yeah VA Cane... Trying to work with EVERY individual athlete, and getting them to give their best effort is how it's done. (Some days are harder than others.)

The biggest problem I run into is I tend to spend most of my time working with the struggling members of my teams, (at the expense of the top players.)

It's a constant balancing act.

Glad to hear Harley is back... maybe he'll follow DeVonta Smith's lead, and catch a few million balls off of the jugs machine! (And win a Heisman in the process!)πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

The Herb

Yeah, u got to keep the superstars humble. When I was coaching, I used to tell them, they would all be coached the same and treated equally bad, when the time comes for pissing me off.

VA Cane


Henry Jordan, the Green Bay Packer HOFer,born Emporia VA, went to Warwick HS in Newport News (Mike Vick Norman Snead pro players high school), UVA in college, Cleveland and Green Bay in NFL used to say about Lombardi "Coach treats us all the same and fairly,....like dogs"....indeed he molded them into champions....you got to push these kids...a coach has to be demanding....I am very demanding...but I do not abuse my guys....UM has never been the same regarding accountability demanding excellence and dedication...and pushing kids to the limit since BD....Clappy Onion AlPa CMR and MD....soft on players soft on coaches.....you do not ever abuse kids....but you work them develop them...make them men....mine thank me over and over......guys that played for me when I was 19 and coaching....cause my Dad Jack Johnson Beamer...they drove you....pushed you...we are "Soft U"....it wont be soft opening game 2021 Saban and co will be looking to run us out of the stadium...and most likely 90% sure they will....we are not ready to play at that level...at all!

The HerbieIbis

I hear u VA. Our LBers are weak. Bama will have a lit of new faces starting next season but close to half will be 5 star players. They might have one or two three star players starting against us. If King is not ready we will get dumped trucked.
I'm calling on Manny to do the right thing and get rid of Baker & Patke. Patke brings nothing to the table. He would be better suited to be coaching division 2, gaining experience that way. Here he is learning on the job and it's not going well. Not saying down the road, he won't be a good coach. BAKER is nothing more than a puppet for Manny. Both are not good recruiters. They don't excite nobody, especially talented players. I wouldn't say our LBers are trash but coaching has let them down. They look lost and slow to react.
Like offense last year, we need an overhaul on that side. If he keeps Baker, he should be demoted to LB coach but I don't want to even think about that.
Go get Partridge to coach the Dee line. Find a good Dee coordinator who can coach and recruit. Same with LB or special teams. Somebody will have dual roles. They need to be able to recruit period.
We will need good coaches because if not Bama will go up and down the field.

πŸ˜‚Exactly! (And the older I get, the easier it is to piss me off.)πŸ˜–πŸ˜‚

JCane

Tim Reynolds tweeted to potentially expect more changes this week, and I saw an article that referred to TRob having some D coordinator duties, too. Interesting. I expect BB likely to not be retained, but figure Patke to be gone, too. Should be an interesting week. Anybody taking a shot at who would replace BB?

The Herb

The recipe for getting to the final 4 in most cases:
Bama 83% of your roster is blue chip players. OSU has 80%.
Bama has 12 five star players OSU, I believe has 15. Georgia & Clemson are the other 2 with more than 10.

So nothing here about Borregales winning the Groza award or Dan Morgan into the CF HOF?

Yeah... That should probably be a new blog!

No Baker Firing??
Ok

Tyrique Stevenson in Da portal. Could be coming home.

JCane

And Joyner follows some coaches to Utah State...per Manny N, Stevenson already lists UM as his school on FB.

AeroCane

T Stevenson - can you say T-Rob? Already paying dividends

VA Cane


Ohio State....I hate em..many reasons...but they play like hell especially when underdog....seen this before UM fans...like 2003....beginning of the end....IJS...they may not win tonight but give them credit..so far no back down..got to love that!

AeroCane

I sure would love the dolphins to grab smith and Harris in the upcoming draft; tired or williams and Parker constantly being out with injuries; they should pick up another top receiver thru FA
IMO

I approve this message!

Go Dolphins!

AeroCane

Sota - Flores made a mistake by not getting sark as our OC - the second the dinosaur resigned (thank goodness) he should of been on the phone. Instead, he waited and lost out.
And we don’t know if he would of wanted to be an OC in the NFL with Tua or the HC at Texas. Oh well
PS we need to look at jamar chase as well as smith - as good as smith is, will he survive an nfl season?

86Cane

Miami will beat Bama 34-13 next year!

U can run the blog and write it up if U want?

I am waiting?

AeroCane

OR, if manny keeps baker, Bama will beat us 52-24

JCane

Not sure it would be that close, Aero. Nice to have T Rob on board to finally get some recruiting though.

VA Cane

If CMD keeps Baker....we can play 15 on the field....it wont matter...Bama will pull a 58-0 or better...Bama is way better than Clemson I think TLaw will be a good pro...but for college slice em up Bama is the best. I hate to be cruel...but we should back out of the game. It will be embarrassing and it will be a death blow to the program....and lets face it we are limping along...Clemson UNC OSU...good teams.....we were never in the game...anybody can beat a nobody...but where we are now we aint gonna come close to bama...I say back out of the game now...or duck cause a big thud is coming!

The Herb

I second that emotion.
Bama will practically have a new starting offense but have 7 or 8 back on defense. We couldn't run much this year and definitely won't run on them, so King, if he is even back, will have to throw 50 times for us to be within 3 touchdowns.
Let's see, we couldn't stop the run even with Phillip's and Roche, man it could get ugly quick. Oh well, it's better to find out early, than late where u need to get better.
They got about 7 months to figure it out.

86Cane

So this Bama team is pretty good, huh?

#RollTide

86Cane

How did you like the offensive play calling for Bama?

nemo2020

Miami grabs Oklahoma wide receiver Charleston Rambo from the transfer portal. This is a good get!

Trautman: I don't think you understand. I didn't come to rescue Rambo from you. I came here to rescue you from him.

nemo2020

Teasle: Whatever possessed God in heaven to make a man like Rambo?
Trautman: God didn't make Rambo. I made him!

nemo2020

Rambo to Trautman: "Sir, do we get to win this time?"

86Cane

Nemo...I think you won the UM tumbler from Sarasota Cane. Can you email me your info to tpopadak@hanoverbuilds.com

Thanks!
