Boom 💥 Baby! Go Canes! Keep up the great play Canes Hoops. BTW The Lady Canes Beat GT today and they are Also heating up. Thank you Soupster for the Basketball Coverage. Appreciate It.

Steele is leaving. Heading to his Sweet Home

Steele not good enough for Miami but good enough for Bama? OK!

Herbieibis

Well, it's easy to be a better coach when u have 4 and 5 star players 3 deep.
We can do better than him. Truth be told he and Gattis should of been on that same amtrak out of town. The problem now, is we'll probably be without a DC for Spring practice, unless he promotes Charlie.

Old Skool

Dwight Gooden's son, Dylan.\, commits to play football for Maryland.

Apparently, Dylan never really considered following in Dwight’s footsteps.

“He played baseball, said baseball was boring, which I don’t understand,” the elder Gooden said.

Old Skool

Apparently, Mario's OC decision-making process is downtempo:

All huddle
A trudge to the line
Long hard counts
That result in slow developing plays or what the experts call "Three months and a cloud of fog"

His DC decision-making process will probably consist of a winter-long timeout to ice the fans.

I imagine his favorite part of a baseball game is the seventh-inning stretch

Clemson's coach came into the year on a warm seat but is also their all-time wins record holder in program history too, so you can make a decent argument Miami beat the best basketball team they've had ever over the weekend.

Didn't have a great night shooting as a team and really had trouble dealing with the opponent's size in the front-court on the boards last time out against these visitors, maybe South Beach Sunday nightlife flu can be the game MVP for the Hurricanes still though since they're a much different squad on the road?

Old Skool

Rashada's contract details revealed by the Athletic:
$500,000 upfront payment.
$250,000 a month for his freshman year rising to $375,000 a month for his junior year

Old Skool

For comparison -- cost of 4 year degree at UF: $24 to $48,000.

Herbieibis

Well, I hope the dude don't flop.
That's a ton of cabbage for a kid who hasn't thrown a pass in college. What happened to earning your keep.
What pisses me off about Mario is his lack of balls to fire someone. As I've stated, Gattis should of been gone after the last game and not the last of January. I wonder what it cost us at WR and Steele should of been right behind him. Neither earned their keep.

Canes🏀 are ballin! This is a good time to start gelling headed into March.

Go ‘canes!

Miami Hurricanes are Kicking The Duke Blue Devils Arse at Watsco Center in Coral Gables! Boom 💥

South Beach Sunday nightlife flu claims another casualty. Filpowski vanished in the locker room at halftime for the visitors which was interesting to see happen. UM's best two halves of basketball they've put together this season so far. Half game back now, so each game is now a near must win, especially at home, in the conference regular season title race.

Mark Rudd

Did it again, gentlemen. What a night of basketball L crew put together. Thrilled at their performance. Kudos. Bring on Louisville!

Herbieibis

Age trumps youth. Sometimes kids got to be spanked.

Old Skool

Our new DC is Lance Guidry???

Old Skool

Here's what Wikipedia says

Lance Guidry (born March 25, 1971) is an American football coach and former player. He is the defensive coordinator for the Tulane Green Wave football program. Guidry served as the head football coach at McNeese State University from 2016 to 2018. He was also the interim head football coach at Miami University for one game in 2010 and at Western Kentucky University for one game in 2012. Guidry played college football as a defensive back at McNeese State from 1990 to 1993. He was a four-year starter, a Team Captain and was also a two-time All-Southland Conference selection. Guidry ranks 17th on the McNeese all-time tackle leader board and also ranks 10th in interceptions

Old Skool

In other news/rumors ...
Byron Leftwich may be interested in joining the college ranks. He's supposedly reached out to ND about their OC position

Old Skool

For those interested. Here's a worthy link. Game stats for the Marshall ND game earlier this year.
Marshall won. The DC: Guidy

From the Palm Beach Post

21 former Dolphins players suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy — the brain disease known as CTE — according to research released this week by Boston University’s CTE Center

The number is far greater than six previously disclosed CTE cases in ex-Dolphins. Those six all were members of the 1972 undefeated team: Jim Kiick, Jake Scott, Bob Kuechenberg, Bill Stanfill, Earl Morrall and Hall of Famer Nick Buoniconti.

Because of privacy concerns, the center could not disclose the names of 15 additional Dolphins diagnosed with CTE upon their death.

CGNC

Canes Basketball - Boom like TSully said. Glad Steele is gone, he didn't do much recruiting wise either from what I remember.

CGNC

Rumor mill is that Jason Candle could be next OC. We'll see

Herbieibis

Dam Mario, went outside your comfort zone and did a 2 day turn around. Like Johnny Ringo said in Tombstone "I didn't think you had it in ya".
Not familiar with this dude but anything will be better than Steele and from what I've read should be a good recruiter, with energy.

JCane

Antione Jackson is asking out of his LOI. Gotta wonder what the deal is.

Herbieibis

Must of not got enough loot.
The problem, is depth of the position. It was LBing that was a problem for us, well we finally took care of that for once.
In the mean time we forgot about getting a couple of homerun hitters at WR. DT is another position that we seem to forget. Got 1 in the 22 class and 1 in the 23 class. We got maybe 4 or 5 safties on the roster. I don't get year after year a couple of position are recruited with not much sense of urgency.
The product on the field has something to do with that but this constant coaching carousel and the development are our biggest issues and add to that, that plodding offense Mario wants to run. If u are going to take months to fire someone and do the same to hire a replacement, then u shouldn't get it wrong.
The Herb ain't a Mario lover at present. It's wonderful that he got us some talent, especially at LB and on the OH line but he better get these coaches in step.

Old Skool

It appears the Irish are also targeting Candle.

Ohio_Cane

RE: new DC Guidry... I was told " It's about to get scary. Athletes are gonna thrive in his system.
Watch the ND game... That will probably give you a good indication of what he'll bring."


The ND game referenced is ND vs marshall last year

ALso from David Lake on Guidry - After speaking with plenty of college football sources, the feedback I got on Lance Guidry is that Miami hit a home run with the defensive coordinator hire. He is a highly respected coach that has been waiting for a Power Five program to give him an opportunity. Miami pulled the trigger and many I spoke with believe Guidry will deliver.

The Word from The Herb

After listening to several podcast over the last couple days, it's seemed that Gattis and Ponce never got along and that Gattis alienated several players that just tuned him out. Also it seems that several coaches weren't pulling their weight. Salevea maybe one of those along with Addae. Guidrey is supposedly a good recruiter and evaluator of talent.
Jason Taylor could be headed for an on field role. Wr room talent before the season was below average and it showed. Bruce Feldman said we need at least 2 WR's from the portal that will be difference makers but it could be tough for us to get those type players because of not knowing the type offense that will be ran and not seeing the results on the field. We also need more help at DT and safety. They didn't realize how bad it was talent wise.
Ceiling for the up coming season should be around 8 wins.
Aside from Smith, Fields and Mirabal the rest of the staff could probably be gone depending on how much leeway Mario gives his coordinators. Pure speculation at this point but this was a dysfunctional team in every aspect last year.

Herbieibis

Seems Strong is gone.

Old Skool

More Rashada info ...

The Athletic reported that he inked a four-year deal worth $13.85 million with the Gator Collective which averaged to an annual figure of $3.46 million.

One problem: The contract, according to The Athletic, stated that the collective, in its sole discretion, could terminate the deal “without penalty or further obligation.”

That’s legalese for: What’s written in this document means diddly-doo.

Old Skool


Georgia spent just over $4.5 million on football recruiting during the school's 2022 fiscal year, according to an NCAA financial report.

That's 1/3 more than any other power 5 school reporting.

JCane

Looks like Strong wanted a shot at the DC title and was slighted he didn't even get an interview, Herb.

Ohio_Cane

From David Lake: I know it is random in a lot of different ways, but I think Shannon Dawson, the offensive coordinator at Houston is a name to know now.

https://uhcougars.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/shannon-dawson/883

Old Skool

So far we lost Strong and Steele. On names alone that sounds like a significant loss. Hope we don't replace them with a Weeks and Reed.

Ohio_Cane

Also from David Lake:

- Former Clemson offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter interviewed on Tuesday. In 2022, Clemson averaged 33.2 points and 410 yards per game while converting 47.6 percent of the third down opportunities, which ranked 12th best in the country. The Tigers averaged 5.4 yards per play against FBS opponents, which ranked No. 61 in the country. Against Miami, Clemson threw for 240 yards and ran for 207 yards while converting 14-of-19 third down chances and scoring 40 points.

- Texas A&M offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach James Coley interviewed on Thursday. Coley coordinated two offenses at Miami that ranked inside the top 40 and one offense at Georgia that ranked inside the top 40. He is respected as one of the top recruiters in the country and has strong ties in Dade County. Coley could make sense at offensive coordinator or as a position coach with a co-offensive coordinator role.

- Houston passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Shannon Dawson is scheduled to interview this weekend. Dawson comes from the Air-Raid coaching tree of Hal Mumme and Dana Holgorsen, but he does believe in a balanced attack and controlling the line of scrimmage. Houston quarterback Clayton Tune threw for 4,074 yards with 40 touchdowns and ten interceptions while completing 67.3 percent of his passes. Dawson served as the offensive coordinator at Southern Miss from 2016-18 and featured a running back in Ito Smith in two of those seasons that rushed for more than 1,400 yards. Dawson also coached at West Virginia from 2011-14 and coordinated an offense that featured players like QB Geno Smith, WR Tavon Austin, WR Stedman Bailey, and RB Charles Sims.

- Doug Nussmeier is still a name to monitor, but I will say the buzz surrounding him is starting to dwindle recently, for whatever it is worth.

- The current buzz on Jason Candle is that he is going to stay at Toledo, but he is not a name to completely eliminate. He has gone back and forth on his decision to come to Miami over the past ten days or so. This one might be tough to get across the finish line, but it isn’t completely dead until Miami hires a different candidate or the Toledo side announces in some way that he is returning.

- There are a couple other names I am aware of that have interviewed as well, but I do not have the green light to publish. I am sure there are other names that I have no idea about as well. I’m under the impression more coaches will interview this weekend as well. I really hesitate to put a timeline on any of this stuff, but my guess is a hire will happen by Monday/Tuesday at the latest.

Zach Thomas elected to the HOF. Reggie Wayne, Devin Hester and Andre Johnson were not selected.

Coach Brian Kelly is getting a divorce after 28 years of marriage. I wonder if his wife has a buyout.

Here's another tidbit
Nebraska has paid roughly $50 million in buyout money since 2005

Ohio_Cane

I saw that post about Brian Kelly, but I also saw his son apparently posted a pic of the 2 walking with arms around each other and tagged it "Fake news"

Herbieibis

Well, as the sunsets on another day without an OC and the names pile up, The Herb would love Candle but the dude is a flip flopper so we need to move on.
Any coach that uses the air raid, I'm for. Get Coley in some capacity but not as a sole OC, maybe a CO OC. Whoever these people are going to be, make sure they are dog cruisers.
No to Streeter and Nutsmyer.

There are a couple other names I am aware of that have interviewed as well, but I do not have the green light to publish. I am sure there are other names that I have no idea about as well.

OGV (most offensive)
TSully (ladies choice)
CGNC (least offensive)
KYCane (no comment)
Raize Cane (no offense)
UMike (mens choice)

Unfortunately Old Skool and VA Cane did not make the list. Maybe next time?

Terrance Sullivan

Outstanding Soupster

Old Skool

Damn. Not listed. I guess I've got a case of
listeria.

orange 'n green in the vein

Not a great night defensively as a team, but, a good job as a group on the offensive boards, taking care of the ball, and sharing it for buckets all around the lineup to stay half a game back today while getting some help in the standings at the top. Going to need a better defensive effort though next week on the road as they head to Chapel Hill to play the refs and the home team at the same time.

This Is Coach L 8th Team to win at least 20 Games in his Tenure at Miami! Truly The Best Canes Basketball Coach in History! Future Hall Of Famer!
