VA Cane

I agree CG...thank god for this place...and each other...my son came by right after the game...show me new truck..chat...he said you're jumpy...guess I know I am alive...told him...It a Cane thing a wouldn't understand...remember when that was a good thang...IJS

toledocane

While I agree with pretty much everything said... remember 95-97?... it wasn't pretty.

Manny has Blake in his pocket... he's not going anywhere.

HerbieIbis

The bad thing is, there is nobody to fire. If u fire Manny and Lash took over, he sucks too.
The whole staff sucks, in some ways. Let him lose another game like yesterday. He has no control over this team.

HerbieIbis

Well, we are first at something.
We are officially the worst tackling team in the country, oh it's true because pro football says it's true.
66 missed tackles thru 3 games. Our DB's mainly, along with a few LB's.
I can see why Bolden decided to come back. How has that move worked out.

orange 'n green in the vein

"O/U is Tulane vs Ole Miss at 76 points. The lowest O/U is Utah vs San Diego ST at 44 points"

"* Georgia over SC by 31. (O/U 48)

* Michigan over Northern Ill by 27. (O/U 54)

Not sure that Georgia is 31 pys better than SC or that Michigan is 27.5 pts better than N Ill?

Lets say SC scores only a modest 10 pts. That means that Georgia would have to score 42 to cover and that equals 52 pts. The O/U is 48 pts.

82 total points goes over at the top total, three overtimes racked up 64 points to go over at the bottom as well, you split those two maximum/minimum totals.

South Carolina covered the spread and went over the game total with Georgia, so did Michigan when it went over the total against NIU.

Never bet the family farm for this reason. Fire Fake Lames immediately.

That is all.

VA Cane

Fire James Manny all the staff....forfeit the remaining games put it down as 1-11 season make arrangements to drop to DIII. UM can play Richmond, William and Mary James Madison strong academic schools...get to where our talent level is...we are no longer a DI team...the talent is not there I watched FL AL PSU Auburn...that is big time football and we do not have that talent not even close

The Herb

We can't beat teams from the SEC, Big Ten, Big 8 or whatever it's called or Pac 12.
We belong in the Sun Belt conf or conference USA.
Even the bottom feeders in those power 5 conferences would be a sluggish fest.
Playing the ACC has made us SAWFT as Charmin.

HerbieIbis

Aside from firing everyone on this staff, who would u bench?
The Herb would bench the following:
Flagg
McCloud (only would play special teams).
Ford
The entire secondary, except Stepheson .
The entire offensive line except Rivers, well he's probably gone for a minute since he got hurt.
Harris, who falls over if a thumb nail touches him.
Players I hope hit the portal now not later:
Jennings
Steed
Hall
Pope
Wiggins
Scaife
Gaynor
Hillary
Herbert
Reed
These guys are a waste of space and there are a few more I could add to this list.
Did Harvey even play yesterday because I never heard his name called.
King is good player, gutsy I might add but we just need to go ahead and start over, Now!
Van dyke or Garcia or both should play this weekend coming. See who does the best job and with them from their.
Not really Kings fault that we can't run or players drop passes but he is not the same player.

VA Cane

King is a great kid, very tough... and he is not a quitter...Rambo also came to play...I was impressed...Pope and Wiggins Harley are a waste of a uni...those guys drop as many as they catch...they make a tough one and drop easy ones!One of Rambos buddys is a good WR...call 3 of them the amigos?

Punter is a nut but a great nut...line is terrible...our backers and DBs are way small not pumped...and cannot tackle....

I try not to complain....but damn...I was born with a fb in my hand..payed and coached since I was 8 sandlot HS college...play and coach...and I know you never win em all...but we lose so many games by being out of place, not knowing what we are to do, poor game plans and management, and the pet peeve...no execution of fundamentals...along with the stupidest penalties I have ever seen. Nothing against CMD...it just is not right...getting worse falling apart

VA Cane

Watching the Raiders...they holding their own vs Steelers...same shit...3 straight penalties in Red Zone..STUPID!...FG vs TD...thats how you lose. So many athletes are just stupid...I do not know how some of these kids get in UM...they cannot be good students bhecuase they are stupid and lazy on the field...apple not far from tree...stupid in school too

HillViewCane

I remember wanting Cristobal for UM after he won at FIU. Oregon is a sweet gig, wonder if he would ever come home.

I don’t know what direction we go in next but Manny needs to go. He got a fair shot. The team just isn’t well coached. Better to just rip the band-aid off.

Sarasota 'cane

Let’s trade Manny to Nebraska for Frost. And please no Butch David nonsense. This is hard enough as it is! 😂

Sarasota 'cane

Davis…

AeroCane

Frost, O’Brien or cristobol
All would be great IMO

I keep looking at the herald to see the headline: ‘worst coach in um history- FIRED’

PS am I only one who thinks our S&C coach who we stole from temple is way overrated as well

Sarasota 'cane

Well the AP has finally got UM right in the rankings. Miami is not even listed in the “other’s receiving votes” category!

Grrrrrrrrrr ‘canes!

Sarasota 'cane

Grrrrrrrrrrr Dolphins! 🤬

VA Cane

I agree Sota; I loved the BD of 1995 -2000; he was great, got our program back on track,brought in great players, and ultimately won the NC in 2000, 2001 and 2002; we got jobbed in 2000 and 2001 we would have won 3 in a row had the NCAA and press not been stacked against us.

That being said, BD was considered when CMR was hired...BD is 69 years old and really has never proven anything since his time at UM and Dallas Cowboys. He has really not done a lot in the NFL or college. Great here for 5 years, not relevant.

I dont know the answer; Mario is a good guy, but do not know if he fits here. He coaches spped and does neat stuff, but hard to say.

I really think the cloud is over us now permanently..."Hey man, its raining" (Hendrix Rainy Day)....we have had the miserable failures of 5 coaches, the Shapiro Scandal, Patka murder, the death of the OB, the many embarrassing losses (like yesterday), FIU fight, LSU fight, 4-11 in bowls since 2004...its just gloom and doom!

We are a leper in a society of highly competitive football...we have not competed in a long time...those couple years that looked good on paper were not really good...9-3 lucky dog stuff...not good teams at all.

Face it, nobody wants the job...we have never had a real search since BD...5 terrible hires reaches not really head football coaches...reaches...

boy like Sir Jimi said..."Hey Man Its Raining"....man its raining hard

86Cane

Wouldn't be surprised if MSU's Walker is INDEED now the #1 rusher in the nation after laying down 156 yards against Manny and his POS defense.😤

Posted by: roachcane77 | September 18, 2021 at 07:01 PM

Rushing YDS
1 Kenneth Walker III MSU 493
2 Brandon Thomas MEM 421
3 Blake Corum MICH 407
4 Greg Bell SDSU 405

HillViewCane

VA Cane and others. How much time do you think a coach need to show what he has?

I think it’s 3 years but I am curious as to what others think.

86Cane

Grrrrrrrrrrr Dolphins! 🤬

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | September 19, 2021 at 03:58 PM

Dolphins a 3 point favorite losing 28-0?

Posted by: 86Cane | September 19, 2021 at 04:07 PM

They lost Tua early. Plus they turned over on downs twice within field goal range when the game was still manageable. Hopefully Tua isn’t out for long or this season will implode.

VA Cane

I think CMD has missed his window...we keep hearing about monster D...wide open O...yet look at it....this is the year...he is 15-12....55%...not that good.

Where is the great TC....TC numbers vs ranked opponents, teams with winning records..0-2 in bowls....I feel that worm starting to turn...its now or never said Elvis...I'm done...not just CMD...everyone...where is that wheeling dealing O...aint none!

86Cane

Highest O/U is Tulane vs Ole Miss at 76 points.

I BET THE UNDER AND LOST.

The lowest O/U is Utah vs San Diego ST at 44 points

I BET THE OVER AND WON.

Georgia over SC by 31.

I BET SC WOULD COVER, THEY DID, I WON.

Miss State was a 14 point favorite over Tulane.

I BET MSST WOULD COVER, THEY DID, I WON.

Kansas State was a 1.5 favorite over Nevada.

I BET THEY WOULD COVER, THEY DID, I WON.

Notre dame was a 7 point favorite.

I BET NOTRE DAME WOULD COVER, THEY DID, I WON.

Cincinnati was a 3.5 point favorite.

I BET THEY WOULD COVER, THEY DID, I WON.

I BET CENTRAL FLORIDA WOULD BEAT LOUISVILLE. THEY DID NOT, I LOST.

I BET THE DOLPHINS-BILL WOULD GO OVER 47.5 POINTS. THEY DID NOT, I LOST.

Started with $300 in account. Now have $576 after the first weekend of betting. Not a bad start!

AfriCane

Lol Spacers.
I had to give it time to come here. LOL!
Well! I’m officially on the FIRE MANNY NOW train.
Let’s do this and bring in an NFL ex coach or coordinator.
Fire Blake James too. I don’t give a fock!
These kids r talented but not smart. But getting the best out of them is all coaching.
I was very afraid of starting all over again because manny is building a brand for the program and what starting anew means. But I can’t be a canes fan and accept that turd that was a laid on National TV.
Only solice is, we r better than FSU.
BUT WE NEED A SPECIAL TYPE OF COACH to get the best out of these atheletes in south Florida. All the usual names ain’t it. We need a prisoner warden of sorts.

VA Cane

Tell it my friend Afri, hard to lose like that and accept it.
I thought if we played Bama close we would be solid.
We easily could be 0-3...easily...we will not be back in top 25 this year...I see more problems down the road!

86Cane

1. I’m officially on the FIRE MANNY NOW train.

2. Only solice is, we r better than FSU.

3. BUT WE NEED A SPECIAL TYPE OF COACH to get the best out of these athletes in south Florida.

Posted by: AfriCane | September 19, 2021 at 04:44 PM

1. Remember you just flipped over the the right side. You need to earn it! LOL

2. Not so fast my friend. When we BEAT FSU then you can talk trash, but not until we do. It APPEARS we may be better than FSU but that game is yet to be played.

3. So you are saying we should hire Butch Davis?

toledocane

And I was on the 12% bus for the FIRST TIME! I'm an idiot.

Terrance Sullivan

Hire Butch Davis for what kicks and giggles FIU blows Worse than us lol. I would Hire Wilie Taggart before Butch and I ain't trying to Hire Willie Taggart.

MLALUMNI1970

Would Butch even come back? I doubt it. So we must move on and try to save our team and school. I am sad that it is over so soon. I had hoped that the Canes were in better hands. Remember that those at the top really never cared about Hurricane sports. I had hoped with the great alumni players, that it would be different.
TELL ME THAT I AM WRONG.

AfriCane

But 86, do u think butch will be too old to go through the grind of getting a team back to championship level?

Chris A Hughes

Please tell me why you would not want Butch???? All you guys talk about the good old days. Well who do you think brought all that talent in from the good old days. And I know we had Howard, Jimmy, and Dennis. I m talking about the greatest collection of college talent in history. Please go back for all you doubters that are thinking he would not come back just watch the U documentary. Yes he's old but he knows talent and coaching talent. Were not getting Mario anytime soon. Its a money cow in Oregon, you don't think NIL can help a place like the NIKE factory.

Chris A Hughes

I also agree giving the young quarterbacks a chance this weekend. If they cant beat out King, then we are screwed. I want to see Brown get the start this weekend instead of I can't hit the hole hard and I have the vision of Ray Charles (Harris). C. Williams is our starting end period. Zach Mcloud should just become a GA.

AeroCane

Sota
Flores is overrated / doesn’t know how to hire assistants (ie 3 OC’s in 3 years with Chan gailey being a terrible hire);
I feel he has the ‘smartest man in the room complex’ and we all know he’s far from it
Also, Ross needs to grow a set and fire Grier immediately (he should never of picked Noah in the first round, signs too many oft-injured free agents and can’t draft OL worth a darn)

AeroCane

And here it goes:
If it means manny getting fired ASAP, I am ok with us losing to Connecticut State. JMO
However, only if the trustees oversee the search and not Blake James (hire a search firm and bring on someone with head coaching experience) - if be good with cristobol, O’Brien, frost or anyone else you might recommend

The Word From The Herb

Stop with the Butch talk. Remember that movie that came out in the late 80's starring Emilio Estevez, That Was Ten This Is Now, well Butch's time has come and gone. He chose the Kale.
Manny ain't fixing nuttin. They are what they are,a bunch of over hyped whimps. Manny ain't got the balls to get in anyone's grill. Miss a tackle, gotten next time tiger.
Drop a ball, getem next tiger. Miss a block, gettem next time tiger.
No reprocutions. Who ever wears 26 and I think it's Hall, should of taken the dam jersey off and laid it at midfield. Those guys that had NFL aspirations, just watched them flushed down the toilet. Looks to me like they are trying to protect themselves from getting hurt, going half azz.
Same shyt that has been going on forever, better pros than college players.

Sarasota 'cane

Preach Herb!
And how about the size of our players? When I watch the Top 5 teams play I can’t believe how much bigger they are! Alabama players are freaks. We could lose to Duke and Georgia Tech this year! That’s a low bottom.

BAD MOJO.

I really thought Ed Reed's presence around the program would be a benefit. Doesn't seem to be.

Ed Reed isn't changing the culture at UM. The culture at UM is changing Ed Reed.

I was just making a joke. No more Butch.

I want Coastal Carolina, Iowa State or Fresno State's coaches. No talent and in the Top 25.

58 Straight

Stop with the Butch talk.

Not in the least bit so it appears.

Just like when Golden brought back Art Kehoe.

Not a friggin thing changes or can fix this program. We are done. We are toast.

HerbieIbis

Easy Ed is to busy smoking a stogie drinking cognac.
Announcer showed a traffic where MSU had 22 portal players and 21 recruits this past cycle. Lost 27 players.
Half their roster flipped and we got drubbed. That's what coaching can do.
We sitting here with 19 out of 22 starters back and that is what bad coaching will do.

HerbieIbis

Unc put a 59 spot on Virginia. Bet we struggle to get 24.
Virginia QB threw 4 TD passes, I believe in the first half, alone.
I already got VA beating us 34-24.

U are correct Sir.

58 Straight

UVA and UNC will beat us like a bad step child.

That is all.

nemo2020

More bad mojo!

nemo2020

The real issue is not whether Butch Davis is really good enough for the Miami job but whether Manny Diaz is even good enough for the FIU job.
