me no like:
"FSU’s streak of wins once reaching overtime is 13 consecutive games—a Division I men’s basketball all-time record."

AeroCane

I bet Briles and candle are pissed Mario took so freaking long to make a decision and offer! Now they’re saying ‘f’ you! Now what ‘slow poke’ Mario?
Same with DC!
Jeez, you have your top 2 or 3 when you landed the job and go all out. Not wait months then these high ego guys feel slighted.

Can’t wait for Saturday, and watch our Canes play FSU, at home! I think the game is in the afternoon.

Apparently we were offering Jason Candle $1.7 mil per year as OC. That's top 3 money in the country.

A basic principle of Mario Cristobal coordinator searches is that he always has multiple candidates, always discusses pay in advance and never offers job before candidate has said he would accept. Assuming he has stuck to that, several folks are using Miami openings to get raises

Here's a question not yet asked: Can U pay Columbian hookers with crypto?

Doesn't everyone?

JCane

Jake Garcia LifeWallet NIL deal announced. 60 grand in 22 and 85 grand in 23. Guess this incentives our qb2 to stick around rather than hit the portal if TVD blows up even more or simply to wait his turn

alpine

lady canes did their job, going into the tally-lair and knocking off fsu
. . . 1st win IN tally since 2014

- okay men, your turn to step it up and stomp 'em down tomorrow!

Ohio_Cane

For anyone that cares about my guess:

DC = Doug Belk, IMO

OC = I have no damn clue any more lol

JCane

Belk signed a new contract the end of last year with a pay bump from 500,000 to a cool million. Obviously the U is now operating at a different economic level, but as 86 has said, it's just craziness. Clearly a DC deal with UM would be another nice "bump."

Starter won't be coming back to start another entire season after 2022 if things work themselves out the way you'd like to see though anyway.

S&C coach Aaron Feld on 790 this morning. Like this guy!

JCane

Agreed totally, Aero and OGV. However, these days many guys aren't willing to wait even 1 season for their turns any more. Some extra incentive/$ just boosts the odds. Money=loyalty

JCane

Rumor is that the U may be willing to spend up to 1.75 million for the OC

Leonard Hamilton, hell of a basketball coach.

Apparently, beating FSU is one "new trick" that Old Coach L hasn't been able to learn.

Don't look now but FSU's lead is down to 10 points, 6 minutes left.

toledocane

Down to 6!

Down 1 with 8 seconds and the ball!

Wong missed :(

i'm suffering high blood pressure right now; phew!
- 1st half, fsu outplayed miami, but not by 26; canes just had an egregiously cold night: "couldn't buy a basket" as the saying goes
- 2nd half could've been the comeback of the year if wong's shot finds the net
- alas, romeo died piteously in the first half; juliet, seemingly asleep, woke up in the 2nd half; but died anyway
- the horrible metaphor simply to point out, this was shakespearian drama tonight

nemo2020

Alpine,
Good analysis. Tough loss.
FSU's height advantage really hurt us in the first half.

Terrance Sullivan

Pathetic Pathetic Loss Today SMH.well at least this will be a tournament team but I don't see anything beyond a 1 and done in the tournament a good season at best but not Sweet 16 type teams like 2016, 2013, and the couple of teams under Coach Ham in the Big East Days.

MLALUMNI1970

As I said before, I am just too old for this shit! 73, and I just want to beat the Noles, at home, before I croak! Is that too much to ask? I guess it is. I bet Wong would like that shot to do over and over. But, he can’t do it ALONE. That is all, as 86 would say.
Shot in my retina next week, and vertigo treatment on February 7th. Then I can go to Florida, I hope. Bleeding in the retina and bad vertigo are my ailments.

- i'm thinkin' we're not watching the same team?
- miami goes into fsu, top team in the acc; loses by one on a controversial foul call after an earlier mess up on a goal-tending call
- miami takes out syracuse, after coming back from 18 down; has a great game vs. duke and gives nc an ass-whooping
- plays again vs. fsu but miami goes frigidaire-cold in the 1st half and has to dig themselves out of a 24 point hole . . . WHICH THEY DO! and have the possibility of winning the game on the last shot
- "pathetic"? if you left at intermission; otherwise? i think it's a better adjective to describe your post
- miami an easy one and done? . . . miami will be the same mature, dangerous team, if the injury bug doesn't find them

You do understand that it’s about wins and losses not how you play the game! Right? You get that?
Coach L is still the same old nothing coach who won’t get us anywhere close to where we want to be! With the excitement of Mario, it’s time to move on from this dinosaur to greener pastures as soon as this season ends!

nemo2020

When one basketball team always has the shortest player(s) on the court, and the other team always has the tallest player(s) on the court, guess which team wins? NOT US.

A close loss is still a LOSS - yet ANOTHER loss to our in-state rival, FSU.

NINE straight losses to the same team can only be explained by the obvious fact that one head coach more consistently recruits better players than the other one.

We can't blame NINE straight losses to FSU merely on "injuries" or "the NCAA" or any one of Brother Alpine's other (tired old) excuses for Coach Larranaga.

Coach K is retiring after this season. Does anyone in their right mind think that Duke would want to hire Coach L to succeed Coach K? Indeed, would ANY other school in the ACC (or in any other top conference) want to hire Larraraga away from Miami next year? OF COURSE NOT. Any such school would surely hire someone else to lead it's men's basketball program (despite Larrañaga's many years of experience). So, why are we so different? UM SHOULD HIRE SOMEONE ELSE TOO.

AeroCane

Alpine
Nemo and I get it! Why you still making excuses and in love with coach L? Are you related to him?

- sports are "entertainment"; if you are entertained, then the game has done it's job . . . i was definitely entertained by both fsu games
. . . if that had been a bottom-feeder, i might not have found it so entertaining; vs. a good program? yes!

interesting basketball understanding
. . . so miami was shorter than duke & NC?

AeroCane

Nemo
I’ve been hearing his name for awhile
Personally I liked Briles but I truly believe he wasn’t actually offered the position and he leveraged the interview with Arkansas; candle would of been another great hire and if he had crushed it here, he’d be up for a nice HC position within 2 years! (Way above Toledo)
Maybe it will happen with Ponce - seems like he’d be a nice hire
Otherwise he’s stuck with trying to rehire manny as his DC and Coker as his OC
LOL

Hamilton, who coached at UM from 1990-2000, praised Larranaga for turning Miami around this season and said he hopes fans appreciate the in-state rivalry and how far the programs at UM and FSU have come. “It’s amazing, you have to give Coach Larranaga a lot of credit for coming from an injury-plagued team to the team that was No. 1 in the ACC,” Hamilton said. “That says a lot about his ability to recruit and assess how to play within the talent they have. They play a unique style, different from all the other teams we play and it’s extremely effective. I think it’s great to have two teams from Florida ranked 1 and 2 in the ACC. You could say we’re 1A and they’re 1B.”

Of course he’s gonna say that

He wants our idiotic fans to want to keep the dinosaur! LOL

Genius plan, fire the basketball coach at Miami because his team lost two ACC conference games by a combined two points while the refs bailed out the same team that beat them once, then refused to bail out Miami in the exact same circumstance in the rematch because that's the way basketball officiating is worked in the league.

Yeah, no wonder Radakovich is the AD and you're not.

Perhaps, Coach L's subpar 10-year record (e.g., barely above 50%) against ACC competition would give some legitimate pause for concern, don't you think?

If he's such a great coach these days, then UM better watch out because Duke may hire him away from Miami to replace Coach K at the end of this season. (No, of course not!)

Incidentally, let me be clear. Given his lengthy experience at the college level, Larranaga is as good as anyone these days coaching a basketball team on game day. Everyone knows that. And, yes, fellow septuagenarian ACC colleagues, such as Coaches H and K, freely acknowledge this fact. However, his best days as a top recruiter have long since passed.

But we're stuck with him it seems - because he still has a couple of years remaining (I think) on his contract - and also because no other school would want to hire him away from UM. (Damn it!)

P.S. It would be good, if Miami (finally) beats FSU in the ACC tourney and then has a deep run in the Big Dance - so, perhaps, Coach L could (finally) retire on a high note.

AeroCane

Alpine
Just because you and OGV are happy with coach L’s results over the past 5 plus years doesn’t mean I have to be.
So no, don’t be an idiot and tell me the ball is in my court.
With the excitement of Mario, I still say the dinosaur is ‘forced’ to retire after the season (at least I can hope)

nemo2020

I got your back Aero!

The problem, I think, is that the UM basketball program has been DOWN for so long that now it looks like UP to Alpine and his wingman OGV.

Fortunately, however, there are still some UM basketball fans who recognize the difference between rigor mortis and signs of life.

nemo2020

Ohio,

Where are you?

Any hot takes for us - about coordinators or recruits?

Thanks?


JCane

I wonder how coach K would have fared with the Adidas/FBI scandal/several year recruiting interference that UM hoops went through. Not comparing the 2 coaches, as coach K has a draw like few others, but I am amazed at the improvement in the program since last year, although disappointed in how the first half went and two losses to FSU again this season. Kudos to rhe old man.
