"Ahead of his unofficial visit with the Miami football program on Sunday night and Monday, prospect Jack Pyburn excited the Hurricanes fan base with his tweet announcing his arrival in Coral Gables. Pyburn who is a recent de-commitment from Minnesota is a three-star edge rusher who has been on the rise recently.

Pyburn is the 1,172nd player, 63rd edge rusher and 152nd in Florida in the Class of 2022. The Miami visit this weekend was unofficial for Pyburn. Pyburn also took his official visit with Auburn on Friday and Saturday. Auburn and Miami appear to be the favorites to sign Pyburn. Auburn and Miami are the favorites per 247 Sports.

Pyburn is a productive player that had 109 tackles, 32 tackles for loss and 14 sacks as a senior in 2022. The 2022 Miami football class already has edge rushers Nyjalik Kelly and Cyrus Moss as part of its 2022 Class. The Hurricanes are also strongly pursuing five-star Monsignor Pace defensive lineman Shemar Stewart.

Pyburn told Sports Illustrated he was taking the visits to Auburn and Miami this past weekend and then decide where he will take official and unofficial visits next weekend. Pyburn also recently picked up an offer from Virginia and Florida State is reportedly interested. Mario Cristobal and his staff are making the DL a priority."

saddest fact of the day for all us fin-fools:

The Bills have scored 40+ points 4 times this season.

The Dolphins have scored 40+ points 5 times in the past 20 seasons.

It says as much about our GM’s and head coaches during that span as much as the players! As long as Ross is the owner, we’re destined for average at best

Ohio_Cane

Canes are targeting Jason Candle (Toledo HC) as OC and is Mario's #1 guy, ahead of Briles, who Mario has apparently interviewed.

Candle is a G5 HC, yes. BUT, the offense he runs is legit and he's a brilliant offensive mind.

Ohio_Cane

I'll give my opinion on Candle, for IF he ends up our OC:

HOME RUN HIRE!

Ohio_Cane

"Since Jason Candle took over the play-calling duties at Toledo, the Rockets have averaged at least 31.5 points per game in each season and have twice led the MAC in scoring. Candle kept it rolling when he became the program's head coach and in his first season the Rockets put up 38 points per game, averaged 7.2 yards per play, and finished 10th in S&P+'s adjusted offensive ratings. He's one of college football's best offensive coaches. In this scheme, the Rockets run a modern day spread offense with tempo involved. On Saturday, you will see the quick hitting dart run that Chip Kelly made famous at Oregon. You will see multiple RPOs and zone read actions. There are even some option elements such as a midline read sprinkled in. Toledo wants to spread the field and make opposing defenses guard in space. Last season the Rockets put up 40.4 points per game and that ranked ninth in the FBS"

toledocane

Yep

JCane

Harold Perkins, 5 star LB and recent TAMU verbal, apparently has said he plans on taking his last visit pre signing day to UM. Hmmmm

HerbieIbis

I'll say this, Mario has a lot balls to offer a head coach of another team, albeit a mid major, an OC job. What he really is saying, do u want to stay at that chump school and make crumbs or come here where u can 2 mil. or more. If it were me and my whole life had been spent mainly in Ohio, I'd say no. If he is that good, someone from a power 5 school will eventually come calling for him to be a head coach.

Ohio_Cane

Btw, Toledo has put up 24 and 30 points on us the last 2 times we've played them. Candle is the HC but calls the plays too

Arkansas offensive coordinator Kendal Briles has been offered offensive coordinator position at Miami, sources told
@ActionNetworkHQ
. Briles also has been OC at Florida State, Houston, FAU & Baylor

Ohio_Cane

That was a quick change of pace from Football scoop's article last night lol

Ohio_Cane

As Aero has said several times, Briles is a genius offensive mind, and this is ALSO a homerun hire.

If it happens lol

CGNC

Hi Marylou! Game tonight is on the ACC Network at 7:00

Ohio
Just read this - Briles or candle - 2 great hires IMO

AeroCane

Per inside the U - not sure how I feel about this
‘Miami Hurricanes head coach Mario Cristobal is considering an NFL assistant coach to be his defensive coordinator.

Miami Dolphins linebackers coach Anthony Campanile is considered an option for Cristobal according to a source.

Campanile is a former safety and linebacker at Rutgers from 2001-04 while Cristobal coached offensive linemen and tight ends at Rutgers during Campanile’s first three years as a player.

Campanile, 39, has served as the Dolphins’ linebackers coach the last two seasons. The Dolphins recently dismissed head coach Brian Flores.

He was also the linebackers coach at Michigan (2019) for Jim Harbaugh and was the defensive backs coach at Boston College (2016-18) for Steve Addazio.’

Ohio_Cane

Aero, I've read from a few people that Companile would be LB/co-DC and would NOT be calling plays. the other co-DC would be the guy

The only acceptable answer is they are waiting on NFL coaches who are still in the playoffs. I can’t see any reason why they would still be waiting on a college coach.

They want to be the big fish in a little pond.
Got to have comp. Now are there kids that make the league play at HBC's, hell yeah, always have been but they are fee and far between.
Mario going after a NFL dude for LB coach is cool but not for the DC.
Been saying Briles is the man, until Mario gets the message.

Not sure I deserve a “Ding” since the Dolphins are obviously and painfully not in the playoffs! 😂😂😂

I really would like to see Jim Leavitt’s name mentioned for DC. With a guy of his caliber who has already worked with Mario out there and available I’m not sure why UM is still looking. Just pull the trigger already and don’t overthink the hire.

Go ‘canes!

Dam if Saban ain't sticking his head into politics, trying to get Manchin to sign for the voting rights bill. Who knew he was a Biden sniffer. It's simple,have an ID u can vote. That's my 2 cents on that matter, now back to the problem at hand.
Some report Mario has offered Briles, some say he hasn't. Hire somebody like yesterday.

85-57 stomp-down on the storied NC program:
"North Carolina’s 27-point halftime deficit matched its largest in the last 25 seasons. The other time the Tar Heels were losing that bad at halftime was at Duke in 2010"

everyone was excellent, but it was particularly fun to watch waardenburg kick ass:
"UM forward Sam Waardenburg, a sixth-year senior from New Zealand, was one of three Hurricanes who scored more than 20 points. He came out like a man possessed and scored a career-high 21 points on 7-of-9 shooting. He had been averaging 7.1 points per game this season. Seventeen of Waardenberg’s points came in the first half. He made all six of his shots before intermission, including a career-high four three pointers. Two of them came after Charlie Moore behind-the-back passes. Waardenburg also had two thunderous dunks that ejected the crowd of 5,979 fans from their seats"

Congratulations Alpine!

Miami BB has never looked better than Tuesday night.

Saturday's home game against FSU can demonstrate that UM's team is the real deal

Old players + old coach = new respect?

“Arkansas offensive coordinator Kendal Briles has been offered offensive coordinator position at Miami, sources told @ActionNetworkHQ. Briles also has been OC at Florida State, Houston, FAU & Baylor,” McMurphy said.

Just a few hours after the report, Briles has reportedly made a decision. According to one report, Briles turned down the offer from Mario Cristobal and will remain with the Razorbacks instead.

gracias, nemo!
- and yes, the FSU game looms large, after FSU just had their own 1-point win against both miami AND duke
- do agree with OGV, that in the FSU game, the canes were robbed on the goal-tending call
. . . you should never make such a call on a run-from-behind, high-energy, amazing play, unless it's CLEARLY goal-tending (not just "maybe, kinda looks like"...)

Posted by: nemo2020 | January 19, 2022 at 07:22 AM
--------------------------------------------

This is called smart business by Jimmy Sexton, Briles' agent. Candle is our #1 guy and was offered the job, Sexton knows this and tells Arkansas he was offered the job. Then guess what happens? Briles gets a raise at Ark.

nemo2020

So, then, what happens if Jason Candle gets a raise (too) to remain at Toledo? He assumed the head coaching role in December of 2015 following a highly successful seven-year stint as a position coach and offensive coordinator there. It seems that he likes it there - and is well liked there.
Perhaps, this is a bridge to far for Mario to convince him to leave the HC job at Toledo for a OC position at the U.

BOTTOM LINE: Do we have a Plan C?

Ohio_Cane

I don't know all the details, but I can gaurantee U, Mario has a plan and several backups if needed.

Hell, he's running such a tight ship with info that I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of those names were him trying to flush out moles who leak info out.

orange 'n green in the vein

MVP of the game may have been the Monday night South Beach nightlife. Still, that's the best 40 minutes of sustained play from the basketball team in about what? Four seasons? McGusty doing his "poor man's Bruce Brown impersonation always looking for his shot first" is always nice to see.

Still don't like this matchup on Saturday personally, if they shoot like that first half though it probably won't matter however. There were about five or six really good stretches of defensive play by Miami this last game, they need to find a way to carry that into this rematch if they want to get their win in the standings back.

Ohio_Cane

DE Jack Pyburn is down to 2. Us and Auburn. Decision on 1/27

lol sentence of the day: "MVP of the game may have been the Monday night South Beach nightlife."

Ohio_Cane

Welp, Jason Candle has turned down the OC job at Miami. On to #2 I guess.

Ohio_Cane

Info on Briles situation and what's transpired with him:


Mike Ryan (Ruiz)
@MichaelRyanRuiz

Briles was posturing to get a raise & ultimately appear loyal to Arkansas’ passionate fanbase. Appears to be working. He was very interested in joining Miami but UM never made a formal offer. Maybe UM circles back but him leaking to McMurphy wasnt a good look. 🛳 may have sailed

https://twitter.com/MichaelRyanRuiz/status/1483825644819656713

HerbieIbis

Well, as I said yesterday why would Candles leave a head coaching gig to be a yes man.
If Mario would have listened to The Herb in the first place, probably could have had Briles a month ago but that snails pace was enough time for Da Hawgs to get a game plan together, now what. Obviously da extra bread don't matter.
Just read on his site that he had a descion to make, so it's not like it's etched in stone. Before it said he was staying. Who knows. It's like a soap opera.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane

Unless the gators make an offer at the last moment. We get a few North Florida guys but it’s really gator/Georgia territory. I know and hate it as I live in St Augustine

AeroCane

So TRob is leaving for Bama. That hurts! Saying rod chance from Colorado (ex Oregon with Mario) will be the replacement. Mario really needs to put this staff together already!
Between TRob at Bama and Corey Raymond at Florida, recruiting defensive backs just got a lot tougher (obviously not impossible but tougher)

HerbieIbis

Well, losing TRob does suck but ain't like our DB's were all world and the upper classmen regressed. Most couldn't tackle but he could recruit. So I guess it will take Mario a month to fill this position or maybe after the Spring game.

Terrance Sullivan

Eh T.Rob could recruit but his coaching sucked Arse. Good Riddance!
