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

Better players or better coaching?

nemo2020

Better coaches get better players, don't they?

Tough loss. Exciting game. Can’t stand those Noles. Arrogant SOB’s.
We will get them when they play us a home, in the Gables. In a few weeks.

alpine

wow - what a great game!
love our scrappiness; really love what waardenburg is bringing to the team this year!
that last second foul call giving them 2 free throws with the clock at .7 seconds hurt horribly
. . . but it came right after after miller's fantastic O-rebound/fling out to moore/moore nailing an awesome 3 giving us a 1-point lead with 7 seconds left!!
- this was two good bb teams going at it from bell to bell!
- for the record, those other 7 fsu wins came with miami's teams being waaaaaaay down due to fbi/ncaa/injuries

- the comments section here after such a good game feels strange to me; miami has won 5 of 6 in the ACC and is still on top; fsu has only won 3 of 5 and didn't deal with the type of misfortune larranaga has over the past 3-4 years!
- don't get me wrong, i like hamilton a lot!
. . . but hoping that larranaga fails?! smh

oh, even SI had to sit up and take notice:

orange 'n green in the vein

Team lost this one when they got no scoring help from the bench. But since they did lose by one point I finally get to do this:

Bullshit goal tending call on an actual block by Walker was the final score difference, refs robbed Miami, that's why it's tough to win on the road every night.

They match up better with North Carolina in my opinion anyway so hopefully they can rally.

nemo2020

Eight straight losses to FSU can't be so easily explained by mere misfortune. Perhaps, all those good players that Coach H was able to recruit for FSU had something to do with all their victories over UM too?

Our men's basketball team is off to a great start this year because of the anomaly of having some of the oldest (and most experienced) players in the country - and not necessarily because we have one of the most experienced (and oldest) coaches in the country.

Let's hope that our team wins the ACC championship this year and has a long run in the NCAA tournament, so Coach L has the opportunity to finally retire (this year or next) on a high note.

- so after posting a 4-15 record in the ACC last year, larranaga was still able to bring in two excellent transfers thru the portal (plus a well-thought-of frosh class)and a couple of our best players chose to return . . . isn't that the "good recruiting" your talking about?

Ohio_Cane

5* DL Shemar Stewart has cancelled his visit to Tex A&M this weekend, and could make a short drive down to visit Miami instead. Fingers crossed

We've got a legit shot here

Uh, um...that's not what she said? LOL

Ohio_Cane

It's DEF what she said

alpine

- are people shortening "shemar" to "she"?
- can also rearrange his name to "he rams"; decent name for someone rushing the QB!

AeroCane

Alpine, welcome back and you just have too much time on your hands!! LOL

HerbieIbis

Been saying it, we need Stewart.

thanks! also for giving me my morning chuckle!

AeroCane

‘InsideTheU learned on Wednesday that Florida State defensive analyst Sabbath Joseph was making the move back home to Dade County to help on the defensive side of the ball. His exact role is still unclear, but an analyst or quality control position is most likely.’

Still no OC or DC!

AeroCane

On Wednesday evening, the Miami Hurricanes offered a new transfer target on the offensive line in veteran interior lineman O'Cyrus Torrence of Louisiana.

Torrence is a four-star transfer prospect, the No. 19 overall recruit in the 247Sports portal rankings and the No. 1 interior offensive lineman. 6’5, 332

Ohio_Cane

Been saying it, we need Stewart.

Posted by: HerbieIbis | January 12, 2022 at 09:42 PM
---------------------------------------

We need all of our current targets for 2022, Stewart at the top of the list.

Ohio_Cane

This is a complete guess, but figured we could try to predict the OC and DC. Here's mine:

OC: Kendal Briles (because I can't think of anyone else)

DC: Glen Schumann

HerbieIbis

I think Schumann stays at Georgia.
I think Mario wants Clint Hurtt.
I hope it's Briles.

Ohio_Cane

Yeah Herbie, I have no info on these, just guessing like everyone else is at this point.

I'd be surprised at both my guesses for a couple reasons.

Briles: Season for him has been over for weeks now. Probably would've been hired if he was coming. And he tweeted at Ark's QB that's returning saying "Let's ride"

Schumann: With Lanning leaving, he's in line for DC at UGA and actually calling plays and being the guy. Unless Kirby has someone else he wants to replace Lanning

AeroCane

I sure hope he gets awesome coordinators! He had plenty of funds and time to get Briles and ride a great, explosive offense! I’m starting to wonder if his oc and dc are gonna turn out to be blah hires!

Ohio_Cane

IMO, there's no way they're "blah hires" with the amount of money that's now available to him. Might be an NFL guy in there too? Dorsey as OC? Who knows

Ohio_Cane

Bruce Feldman
@BruceFeldmanCFB

Miami DBs coach Travaris Robinson is getting a lot of interest from several big programs, per sources. The former South Carolina DC/DBs coach, a Miami native, is getting consideration for potential spots at Alabama and Georgia, among other places.

AeroCane

Ohio
I’d rather have Briles 10x over chud or Dorsey! Dorsey to me is a blah hire! An excellent college coordinator who knows how to recruit and who has high energy - that’s who I want
As for TRob, I said weeks ago Mario should of locked him up but now we may lose him. Say what you want but personally I’m not happy with the huge delay of hiring his coordinators. They could be out recruiting, being ambassadors for the U etc

Ohio_Cane

Aero, they couldn't have been out recruiting until tomorrow. Today is the last day of the dead period.

So, hopefully they're announced today/tomorrow morning.

And again, I'm only speculating, not saying I think it's Dorsey or anyone else. Just guesses based on timing.

alpine

for those of you who may not of seen this excellent article about the new O-line coach, alex mirabal:
https://miamihurricanes.com/news/2022/01/13/fb-mirabal-feature-ready-to-build-a-championship-line/

AeroCane

Ohio
Your guesses is what I mentioned a month ago so yes, just guesses
And I disagree - dead period but they would of been ambassadors, there would of been a ton of excitement etc
Name a better DB coach than TRob? A better college oc than Briles? These are guys that could of been locked up a while ago. If we had Briles, who knows maybe we get Coleman or the speedy wr transfer that went to auburn (or tennesse, I can’t remember)
IJS but you can’t change my mind

AeroCane

Dave Iuli
IOL 6-5, 315
Coming in for an official tomorrow
Loves Mario and Alex so I think he’s ours unless he decides distance is a factor
If we get him and the transfer I mentioned above, we’ve just upgraded our OL instantly to SEC size!

Ohio_Cane

IJS but you can’t change my mind
Posted by: AeroCane | January 13, 2022 at 04:33 PM
-----------------------------------------

Wasn't trying to change your mind, just conversating.

And I don't disagree, the excitement would've been there for sure.

I dunno, I guess Mario gets my trust until he proves he doesn't deserve it

AeroCane

Ohio
I agree - I love the Mario hire and I think he’ll do great but that doesn’t mean I have to like his hiring process. LOL

86Cane

This is a complete guess, but figured we could try to predict the OC and DC. Here's mine:

OC: Kendal Briles (because I can't think of anyone else)

DC: Glen Schumann

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 13, 2022 at 09:08 AM

I favor people I know and trust:

OC: Terrance

DC: VACane

Special Teams: Ohio Cane

I am aerocane and I approve this message! BUT, mario should of locked them up weeks ago! LOL

JCane

Aero:

I hope Torrence transfers to the U, also, as we need a big OL, but coming from Louisiana, I see him being a tough draw from his former coach, who is now at FU

AeroCane

JCane
Got it
But with that thought process, why did we not land the big transfer DT j Jones from Oregon?
In other words, keep trying Mario and they will come!

JCane

Agreed again. Tough draw, but until we hear the fat lady...

HerbieIbis

Like TRob but evidently he can't teach tackling and our veterans regressed.
Maybe the kids he recruits will play better for him. In any event, Mario will have to pay to keep him.
Van Dyke must be staying cause he had an offer to go FIU.
Manny must be after some pro dude. Can't believe he wouldn't drop bags at Briles feet.
Clint Hurtt has been mentioned as DC.
Muschamp is still at Georgia and I can't see Schuman staying if he is going to be a co- DC.
Dorsey from what I read would prefer to stay in the pros.
Tomorrow starts the last hurrah before the second signing period. Mario should of had all his ducks in a row by now.
Cruits should want to know who the coordinators are. He's had 6 weeks or more of being diligent.

HerbieIbis

That should of said Mario dropping bags at Briles feet.

AeroCane

Interesting
Mario, with DL coach salave’a, DVD AND TRob had an in home with shemar Stewart (6’6, 272 rated 5 star #7 in the country) last night right after midnight (the recruiting calendar turned over). Obviously a huge piece to Mario’s first year of recruiting at the U and he’s giving it his all!

Ohio_Cane

Aero, that's how the big boys do it lol.

Hey Shemar, wake your family up, we're comin at 12:01 am!

Ohio_Cane

Look at this photo of Shemar Stewart... He makes Joe Salave'a look like a midget, and he was an NFL DT for years lol

https://twitter.com/MrWineAndDine1/status/1481978295650500608/photo/1

AeroCane

Stewart, Kelly and moss! IF we get Stewart, those 3 upgrade our DL tremendously
Then you add OL Iuli at 6’5, 315 and portal OL Torrence at 6’5, 332 and we added some quality beef! (Although I do agree with JCane and think Torrence goes elsewhere - but we got to try)

HerbieIbis

We need to add some beef at DT, as well on the Oh line.
Still needs to add another CB, LB & RB also maybe another big bodied veteran WR.

Ohio_Cane

RB coach Kevin Smith from Ole Miss now official. Announced by the school.

Ohio_Cane

Iuli looking more and more like a slam dunk for Mario. Will be a great get

Ohio_Cane

Just read this:

Be patient...per Gaby at 247 Sports: “Georgia co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann and Houston defensive coordinator Doug Belk are amongst the names sitting near the top of Cristobal’s wishlist.”

Ohio_Cane

Oregon RB Travis Dye just hit the transfer portal. WANT!

Super shifty RB. Darren Sproles imo

AeroCane

Ohio
Still disagree - he’s had plenty of time to do his due diligence and hire these guys. Being thorough is one thing- being downright slow about it is another!
Again, name a better college oc than Briles? If you can’t, then why isn’t he here? His name alone combined with Mario would bring a ton of buzz!!
If you can, let’s hear it and why don’t we get that guy!
I’m a business man, my clients are business people- decisions can be thought out and thorough, and not take this long! JMO
