Well,
The TE's look good.
The RB's look good.
The WR's look good.
The QB's look good.
However, the OL I would say are a little above average. We need more quality.
DE's look Ok, only because Kelly and Moss are FR. And we have nothing to go on.
DT's are OK. We need another player close to Taylor's talents.
LB, well they are the albetros of this team. 11 strong and only 3 four star players, one Huff has done nothing in 3 years. Smith could be a monster for us but who knows yet. Bisainthe will be but is at least a year away.
DB's look good, at least we have star power but a few of whom their star has faded, especially CB.
Special teams are good, with our kickers.
The return game could use an overhaul but George showed he has the talent as a punt returner. Nobody gets to return to many kick offs anyway.

Gattis doubling as a WR coach gives Mario the chance to hire a big time QB coach for TVD, etc. This is major

Terrance Sullivan

1. WIN ACC Coastal(Charlotte or Bust)
2. Win 10 Games or Bust
3. Finish in Top 15 Final Ranking or Bust! Day after National Championship Game is Final Rankings!

TonyCane

QB = Elite, with potentially another elite talent behind TVD
HB = Above average, bordering on elite
TE = Above average
WR = Above average with further upside
OL = Average with upside
DL = Thin
DE = Above average
LB = Average with upside
Safety = Elite
Cornerback = Below to average

mario cristobal, dan radakovich, kevin steele, josh gattis and now mike mcdaniel to the fins
. . . doin' all my shopping at Hope's Harbor this off-year, 'cause that's what we fans (should) do whenever interesting change is in the air

- about flores: i really appreciated that in 2019, with the shittiest roster possible and a total wipe-out running out of the gate, he somehow managed to make the 2nd half of his first season the most fun for me to watch since marino was behind the center; he even won 5 games with that team!!
i LOVED that year and was all-in with flores!
- it's a shame, that despite a couple winning seasons, his offence just seemed to get harder & harder to watch, such that i had a hard time squeezing a tear out of my eye when he got fired; (though i'd have preferred ross go instead; though maybe flores is helping to get ross into "early" retirement)

I would of been a LOT happier that first year if he played Rosen, we lost and got burrows! However, with his toxic personality and terrible awareness of how offense is run, he still would of been fired and burrow would of been no better than Tua! However, again, the new head coach would have burrow to work with not Tua! JMO

i thought 2019 2nd half was sport at it's purest best: like an adam sandler movie, take a bunch of rejects and try to beat other teams; and put in strange gimmicks, tricks & twists to catch the other team off-guard, and play each down like you have nothing to lose (since you don't)
. . . despite missing on burrows, wouldn't have wanted to miss that for anything; priceless entertainment!

AeroCane

Ok alpine, I’ll give you that but then idiot Grier should of chose Herbert over Tua!

Multiple places, including a UGA insider has stated Mario is targeting UGA DB coach Jahmile Addae to be Miami's DB coach.

ELITE recruiter and talent developer. Hope it happens!

Jahmile Addae (juh-MILE uh-DIE) was named defensive backs coach at UGA in January, 2021, after serving two years in the same capacity at West Virginia.

A native of Valrico, Fla., Jahmile in 2020 led a passing defense at West Virginia that ranked first nationally in Fewest Passing Yards Allowed at 159.6 yards per game. The Mountaineers, who capped their season by beating Army in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, finished fourth in the country in Total Defense (283.5 y/g) and tallied 11 interceptions that they returned 112 yards.

In his first year at WVU, he coached two All-Big 12 Conference selections in Keith Washington II and Josh Norwood and freshman All-American Tykee Smith. Washington II finished with a team-leading three interceptions and a team-tying nine pass breakups for 12 passes defended, ranking No. 23 nationally. Hakeem Bailey tied Washington II for the team lead with nine pass breakups, ranking No. 9 in the Big 12. Smith was second on the team in interceptions with two, including one he returned for a touchdown against Iowa State.

A former Mountaineer all-conference safety, Addae returned home to WVU in January 2019, after serving as the defensive backs coach and assisting with several special teams’ phases at Minnesota in 2018. His punt return unit finished No. 1 in the nation (22.3 yards per return), punt return defense was No. 2 (1.11 y/r) and the kickoff return unit finished No. 26 nationally (23.4 y/r).

Prior to Minnesota, Addae spent five years at Arizona, coaching the defensive backs in 2016-17 and serving as an analyst from 2013-15.

Addae developed a youthful defensive secondary into some of the team’s top performers. In 2017, Lorenzo Burns, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, Scottie Young and Jace Whittaker combined for 261 tackles, 24 pass breakups and 12 interceptions.

In 2010-11, Addae was the running backs coach at Cincinnati, where he mentored All-Big East Second-Team selection Isaiah Pead. Pead rushed for 1,029 yards, ranking No. 1 in the conference and in the top-10 nationally in yards per carry (6.6 yards per carry).

Pead averaged 93.6 yards per game and was Cincinnati’s first 1,000-yard rusher in almost a decade and at the time, the Bearcats’ seventh player to hit the mark.

Addae was recognized by Rivals.com as one of the top-10 recruiters in the Big East Conference. Before coaching the Bearcats, Addae served as Cincinnati’s Director of Player Development. He also managed many of the team’s off-the-field responsibilities, including the Cats In The Community program.

Prior to his time at Cincinnati, he was a defensive graduate assistant at Michigan, where he worked with the Wolverines’ secondary and scout team offense.

After graduating from WVU in 2006, Addae was a graduate assistant in the football video department at West Virginia.

Addae was a four-year starter, two-time captain and two-time All-Big East defensive back for the Mountaineers. Addae, who is tied for the WVU record for most pass breakups in a game (five, Rutgers, 2002), finished his WVU career with 253 tackles, including 152 solo stops and 25 pass breakups, ranking No. 5 in program history. He also ranks No. 3 in single-season pass breakups with 16 during the 2002 season.

Addae was selected for the Senior Bowl in 2006 and participated in the NFL Combine. He signed a free agent contract with his hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2006 and spent the end of the season with the Indianapolis Colts.

Addae, and his wife, Maryann, have three sons, Agyeman, Ayden and Amaree.

question: are any of manny's coaches being kept, particularly for recruiting purposes? or are we still just waiting to see how the apples fall?

Ohio_Cane

Field was kept. DVD supposedly is being kept, but in an off-field, recruiting role. Jorge Baez staying in off-field, recruiting role. Rumph staying as assistant recruiting director. A couple grad assistants kept and a couple new hired.

HerbieIbis

Ohio, I hadn't seen anything about Fields being kept but he should one way or another.
DVD could of went to FIU but money talks.

MLALUMNI1970

Anytime we can take a class act away from U. of Michigan, I am overjoyed! My father went to Notre Dame, and I went to the U. Michigan was trouble for both schools. Hope the U can keep it going!! We will continue to get better.
Cold up here in Michigan. Hope to be back in Florida soon. Stay well and stay safe, CANESPACERS!

alpine

thx ohio, i hadn't heard any of that info!

AeroCane

I think fields will be kept as a recruiter off field position unless of course Mario can’t find anyone better to coach
Either way, fields is involved in our recruiting in a big way. (Not sure how good of a coach he is though)
We really need to find a top notch qb coach - maybe steal James coley from Texas a&m (he’s an elite recruiter and south Florida is a strength)

86 Cane...you’re bringing up memories of Enos (2019) and run run pass punt of 2018.

Is it just me or does it seem like our last 5 OCs have basically used that same formula?

HerbieIbis

Well, we had Coley and he brought us Evan Sheriffs or someone in that ball park. I guess it's easier to recruit when u got the money and name recognition.
The DB coach from Jawja is one of the top 25 recruiters this year. If we can get both of these 2 we might be a lock down school finally.

AeroCane

According to inside the U it’s a done deal with Addae! Great coach and great recruiter!

VA Cane

Is it just me or does it seem like our last 5 OCs have basically used that same formula?

Hell yes...1.3 yds first down... 2.1 yards second down...3rd and 7 Bubble Screen....lose 2 yards 4th down....Punt....same formula 19 years 5 different ASSclowns!!!!

Im kidding...but If I do see 2 in a row into the line...with that success...I'm gonna come to FL AND KICK Marios ass!!!!!!...or at least the OCs!!!!

and no more damn bubble screens!!!

T Sully.....thatsa lot to ask....but better odds than last 19 years....

HerbieIbis

It is a done deal with Addae. Now we are starting to cook or maybe we would of been really cooking had Mario made these hires 2 to 3 weeks ago, at any rate what else we need is SP teams and a QB coach. Gattis has the ends and maybe Steele takes the LB's. I think he keeps Fields unless he goes after Coley. Mario opening up the CBook.

That seemed to be Lashlee until around mid-season in 2020...although it was generally King who was running on first and second down. The offense really took off once TVD replaced the injured King in 2021. So overall, I'd rate Lashlee well above the others and certainly the best since Jed Fisch.

Enos and Richt seemed interchangeable...putting square pegs into round wholes.

As for the worst offense in a game...I'd go with this series from 2008.

1 hr, 45 min in...why didn't anyone call a timeout?!

Mr. Clean has no point really except Cristobal good, cheap crap AD's bad, but he's stopped trying to kiss of death the move too by scoffing at only having 60 yards of field indoors to practice on.

Might as well reach for the stars now while everybody is in a giving mood.

- i hear we have a good chance with ANTARES, ARCTURUS,BETELGEUSE and CANOPUS
- fingers crossed for SADALMELIK and POLLUX
- SIRIUS seems destined to choose georgia
. . . and unfortunately, the brightly burning ASELLUS BOREALIS looks sure to land at alabama

Is Ed Reed still on the football staff?
If yes, in what capacity?

Ohio_Cane

Nothing has been reported on Ed Reed yet, but the schools site still has him listed as chief of staff

Well, we had Coley and he brought us Evan Sheriffs or someone in that ball park.
