Let's hear it for old coaches!

(Of which I am one... )

orange 'n green in the vein

Don't personally like the match up this next game, but no matter how long this win streak ends up being if it ends, its already put enough of them in a row to prove they can win enough to cut down the nets in the post season, so at least they can take that away from it already to build confidence off of.

All the old time Canespacers coming out of the stands and running onto the filed got me all excited and motivated and such.

- nice dunk on the blog write-up
- basketball-wise, larranaga had not-of-his-making job'ian problems the last 3-4 years
. . . hoping this will be the year his karma changes
- still waiting to hear from aero!

alpine

p.s. on the blog i wrote up in march 2020 defending larranaga, there were some posts, 86, between you & pb regarding a $100 bet
. . . did you ever collect?

interesting; the question mark after miami's name is still just as strong:
"The Miami basketball team is given a better than 50 percent chance to win in only five of their 15 remaining games. That is despite being higher ranked in the netratings in nine of their last 10 games."

Portal numbers update after a busy weekend (1/10)

*1,075 FBS scholarship players have entered since 8/1
*39 players withdrew
*374 players announced new schools
*36.1% of portal players have announced new schools
*662 FBS scholarship players remain in the portal

Kids continue to make bad decisions

That Being Said even though I am not the biggest recruiting Guy in the world I am intrigued with who we bring in on Signing Day 2 on Wednesday February 2nd I believe we sign around 8 to 10 additional Young Nen to add to the 8 we signed in December. Go Canes! BTW I expect the Staff will be finalized by Thursday Afternoon! Now Let's Go Canes Hoops Men and Women!

Ohio_Cane

I would guess closer to 5-7 guys on NSD2, but they'll all be highly rated kids

Phins inexplicably fire Brian Flores lol. That franchise is a mess

Phins inexplicably fire Brian Flores lol.

- i did not see that coming; supposedly he & grier had a hard time working together; interested in the next step
- there were things flores did regarding player & coach turnover that annoyed me, so i'm not sure how i feel about this

Yeah, Alpine, you're right!
There is no reason why Miami is not ranked today in the top-10 nationally. And, with our 4 sixth-year players (competing against some 18 year old kids right out of high school) we ought to be favored to WIN ten of our remaining ACC games.

AeroCane

Love it Ohio
Not a Flores fan at all
Inexcusable how he didn’t use Duke earlier or how he has mishandled Phillips or really mishandled his coaching staff or how he’s just too smart for his own good!!

AeroCane

You all know I am not a basketball fan nor a fan of the old man! But, what an effing joke we are not in the top 15 or better at this time! Clearly prejudiced against Da U!
Looking forward to seeing how Mario’s staff pans out! Should be soon!

alpine

basketballwise: hoping the canes dis will put an extra chip on their shoulder

P.S. That circus shot by Charlie Moore toward the end of the Duke game was AMAZING. A couple more miraculous game winning shots like that and, perhaps, he will be eligible for (UM basketball) sainthood.

alpine

flores:
- end of 1st season, after clawing out 5 wins with fumes for a team: "dude can walk on water; 2nd half of season = it's actually fun to watch the fins again"
- end of 2nd season: some disappointment; basically "okay, next year"
- end of 3rd season: love what he finally got out of his D; cannot figure out how his O is not much better than it was his first year

- particularly hard to figure out the moving on from flowers & karras now that we've seen a full year of this O-line

From Omar Kelly

@OmarKelly
I hate when media members claim a head coach who just got fired will be "one of the hottest coaches in this cycle." They did that with Adam Gase, overlooking his warts.

Brian Flores is a good coach. But the bottom line is he can't coach offense, & struggles with offensive hires.

CGNC

Nice article 86! Looks like the B-ball team is for real.

As for the Phins - rather them replace Flores and make some better offensive hires than get rid of Tua at this point - would like him to at least get that chance

Omar is a tool

Posted by: alpine

Agree with all
PS what took flo so long to use Duke? Gaskin isn’t even average and yet he took too long to use Duke! Also, why did it take flo and Boyer to lose 7 games in a row until ‘they figured it out’ (their quote not mine); etc
Now if Ross would step down for a real owner and fire Grier, we’d be in great shape!

HerbieIbis

No since in trying to figure out pro football. Look at the Colts, getting beat by the worse team in the NFL, with a play-off berth at stake. Ask the Ewe, how it feels to lose to bottom feeders, they've been doing it for years.

A little excessive but OK I can buy into that.

OK, who U got?

Bama?

Joega?

AeroCane

Offensive tackle Zion Nelson and cornerback Tyrique Stevenson officially announced they would return in 2022 while punter Lou Hedley once again confirmed he would be returning after announcing his intention to come back in December.

I am tired of Alabama winning everything, every time. Maybe it’s pure jealousy!
Hope our Canes can turn it around this fall. Love watching the BB team.
Its 8 degrees out tonight, here in Michigan. Burr. Can’t wait to get back to Florida. I know I am chewing my cud, again and again. But, who cares?
86— You run photos all the time. How about running mine???For old time sake. I am 73 now and would love to see the cute old photos!!

I will hook U up next article.

HerbieIbis

Well, u can plainly see the mountain we have to climb to get where Bama and Gawja are. Line play and depth of it on both sides of the ball.
I don't know what Mario is waiting on with filling out his coaching roster. Either he was waiting on the NFL to conclude or waiting on Shuman, either way it's time to get rolling. Need some line help and the way he is lolly gagging he'll be getting scraps from the portal.
The second signing day is a month away and I'm sure some prospects would like to know who the coordinators are going to be, who the RB coach is, LB coach, is TRob staying. Lot of question Mark's. All I can say I hope he is after Briles.

TonyCane

Alpine, after the first season he let go of his OC. He said that players found the offense too difficult to learn.

That said, his returning starters now knew it. So that curve was now over, yet Flores decided to blow it up and start fresh with Chan Gailey.

Gailey lasted only a year, so now Tua was on to his second OC in two years and the Dolphins were on to their third OC in three years. Except that in Flores case, like having pugs one just is not enough. So now Miami had two OCs in 2021.

- good shout-out for a shot that was DEFINITELY worth a shout-out! that shot stunned me . . . far more cool than any dunk!
- actually, moore had another weird, "how-did-that-go-in" shot right under the basket earlier in the game
. . . i think he's been taking lessons from wong, who makes 1 - 4 acrobatic, "no-way" baskets every game that i watch

tony:
- like i said earlier, there were things flores did regarding player & coach turnover that annoyed me
- but i like that you laid out the OC side of it so clearly; i had forgotten there was an OC before gailey

Ole Miss RB coach Kevin Smith will be joining Miami for the same role

HerbieIbis

Well, I guess he'll hire a coach a week leading up to signing day. I did say last week, that most of these hires are calculated and tied to particular cruits. Whomever is tied to Shemar, get him on board. They paying big bucks at A&M.
Saban says things have to change with both the portal and NIL, as the same teams will continue to dominate.

Ohio_Cane

All hires will be announced by Thursday of this week

did you use the media, tea leaves or a crystal ball for this one

It's been speculated for several days. Confirmed by multiple media people today

thank you sir

MLALUMNI1970

I think the Canes BB team play tonight at 8pm on ESPN. I hope that they can clean their clock!!
Anyone up there in Tallahassee, for the game??
I am getting better after my bad fall a couple of weeks ago. Sore and still black and blue, but lucky I didn’t split my head open.
No game on ESPN. I just looked. Damn. If any of you find it, let me know.
GO CANES

I'm watching the UM-FSU game on the ACCN.This is a big test for us.
It's half time and we're ahead by one point.

Terrance Sullivan

Our Canes lose to FSU 65-64 Son Of A Biscuit!

neno2020

Miami loses by one point.
Apparently, beating FSU is one "new trick" that Old Coach L hasn't been able to learn.
Eight consecutive losses? Not good!
