I just love how the head coaching dominoes will fall in the next few weeks. For instance, Miles to USC or FSU. Good ol' boy Fischer to LSU. Herman to USC or Virginia Tech. And so on and so on and so on.
Some entertainment personality predicted that Chip Kelly would be Miami's next head coach. Is this guy for real!
IMO of the lowly sort. IF Kelly were to leave the city of Brotherly love, I don't believe he'd return to the west coast and be U.S.C's head coach. Simply because he's been there and done that and this and that. In other words, if Kelly were to return to the college game, I'd think he would want to conquer new frontiers. Say the humid, lush, tropical terrains of southern lands. Again, that's just moi being the fantasize and what not.
Oregon: 46–7 33–3 Bowl record: 2-2 All bowl games were major bowl games. Rose, Fiesta and the BCS national championship game. Again, Chip Kelly has the resume! So how can one say his Oregon teams had their crap broken up and this and that in games of significance??!! smh For instance, losing 58-0 or 59-21 is my idea of having a team's chit pushed in and broken up and what not. lmfao
I don't see all the hype with Chip Kelly. Every time the ducks played against physical team Chip gut his SH!T push backwards and sideways. DO NOT WANT CHIP JELLY Posted by: SinisterCane | November 25, 2015 at 01:51 PM First. It's legitimate hype regarding Coach Kelly! Second. I don't see how Oregon/Kelly got their crap broken up and what not. Enter the B.C.S. championship game. " In December, following an undefeated 12–0 season and an end-of-season #2 BCS ranking, Oregon was selected to play the #1 Auburn Tigers in the BCS national championship game on January 10, 2011.[17] The Tigers, out of the Southeastern Conference, were coached by Gene Chizik, and had the Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback in Cam Newton. The Ducks lost, 22–19, on a last-second, 19-yard field goal by Wes Byrum. " _______ Losing on a last second FG isn't my idea of getting their crap pushed in!!
Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | November 25, 2015 at 01:49 PM I apologize for a momentary bought of insanity, orange 'n green. U have to understand that I haven't visited my counselor much lately. By the way, the O/U's on the Miami game is becoming an appealing wager. However, I'll let the college football experts in the forum decide for themselves. Over or under. lol
The program has been stagnant the last decade. Things have to change. Posted by: 1mg of Epi | November 25, 2015 at 01:45 PM Yes Miami football matter should change for the betterment of the program. Which means the next head coach should run a 4-3 defense, or 4-2 defense against spread offensive teams! Akin to the Michigan St. Spartans. Matter of fact, I'm certain D'Antonio has borrowed concepts from the Hurricane 4-3 defenses of yesterday. Think ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK! And being nasty on defense.
"They're well-coached, extremely talented and unbelievably experienced," said Mississippi State's Ben Howland Gary Parrish ___________ " They're well-coached "... and that's why Miami was just another average college football team under Average Al Golden!
Angel Rodriguez, Miami worthy of recognition after 5-0 start to year November 24, 2015 1:49 pm ET " I spend part of the first Monday in April each year -- which is to say, the day of the title game of the NCAA Tournament -- finalizing the Ridiculously Early Preseason Top 25 (and one), and I usually do it in a restaurant at or near my hotel while picking at some food. It's an annual tradition. Or something. Either way, I was doing exactly that this past April, a few hours before Duke beat Wisconsin to win the national championship, and I was sitting at a table with a solid group of about 18 teams because, every year, there are about 17 or 18 teams that, on paper, seem like no-brainers for the Top 25 (and one). Then, there are usually about another 15 schools worth considering for the final eight or nine spots. And so that's what I was doing, just sitting there and sorting through those teams and trying to finalize the bottom of the rankings, when, randomly, Miami assistant Chris Caputo walked by. He asked what I was doing. I told him. Then, I asked Caputo if his team should be ranked. Honestly, I don't remember exactly what he said. But I do remember leaving that conversation under the impression that Miami's staff believed Miami would be good. So I ranked Miami 21st. And now look. "It's only November," Miami coach Jim Larranaga said after his Hurricanes beat Butler this past weekend to improve to 5-0 with five double-digit wins, including two double-digit wins over schools that were ranked in the preseason Associated Press Top 25 poll. In fairness, Larranaga is right. It is only November. But nobody has accomplished more than Miami in these first two weeks of this season. And the Hurricanes look capable of competing with North Carolina, Virginia, Duke and anybody else at the top of the ACC. "I think the Canes are a top-10 team," ESPN's LaPhonzo Ellis said during Sunday's broadcast while Miami was taking a 19-point lead over Butler, and I completely agree. That's why I have Miami ranked ninth in the Top 25 (and one). There are numerous reasons why the Hurricanes are playing at a high level -- the most obvious being that the top four scorers from last season's team are all back and more developed. Also: Miami is barely turning the ball over and shooting 45.4 percent from 3-point range, which is, needless to say, a good combination. And Tonye Jekari, the senior big, is averaging a double-double. He's the reigning ACC Player of the Week. All great stuff. But the most interesting thing is probably the play of Angel Rodriguez. A transfer from Kansas State, Rodriguez has forever shown glimpses of greatness -- like when he scored 24 and led Miami to a win over Duke at Cameron Indoor Stadium last season. Problem is, he's also forever been wildly inconsistent and inefficient -- proof being how he followed that 24-point effort in a win at Duke with a 1-of-10 shooting performance four days later in a loss at Notre Dame. Rodriguez has never shot better than 36.1 percent from the field, or 34.4 percent from 3-point range, in a season of college basketball. But he's been better so far this season. Rodriguez is shooting a career-high 42.2 percent from the field and a career-high 36.0 percent from 3-point range, and he's averaging more points per game (12.8) on fewer shots. His free throw percentage (77.3), assists (4.6) and rebounding numbers (2.6) are all up. He's also not turning it over as often despite playing the same amount of minutes. Simply put, Angel Rodriguez has been good. Consequently, Miami has been really, really good. "They're well-coached, extremely talented and unbelievably experienced," said Mississippi State's Ben Howland, whose Bulldogs lost 105-79 to Miami last week. "Just a veteran club." And one that figures to be a factor this season. Bottom line, it's past time to start taking the Hurricanes seriously. Miami won its first ACC title in history in 2013. Two weeks into this season, a second doesn't seem far-fetched. " Gary Parrish,
He is an Arrogant Coach who will not be able to relate to the kids. Posted by: Coolmac758 | November 25, 2015 at 01:18 PM The Tri-County kids are TOUGH MINDED. They probably won't have any problem relating to a Kelly-esque type of head coach. Also, I heard Schnellenberger could be a SOB!! What hurt Miami the past five seasons, was Golden was TOO SOFT!! Akin to that lame one whom frequently posts. No wonder he was a Golden groupie and this and that. smh
Posted by: Coolmac758 | November 25, 2015 at 01:18 PM And the Orange and Green irony is South Florida H.S. football has the athletes to run the spread. Or at least a bastardize version of the spread. Think quarterbacks. Also, wasn't Bridgewater sort of a spread option QB.
Kelly won't make it till January...I say He's canned in 2, maybe 3 weeks. Negotiations begin shortly boys. Posted by: CaneRock | November 25, 2015 at 12:48 PM My exact notions!! And as time goes by. The rumors will eventually become reality as Kelly being a possible top candidate for the Hurricane opening.
and rumors persist that Kelly could return to the college game after the season. _____ And those rumors have legs to run on. Which means Chip Kelly will be eventually running to the nearest high class bank in Miami/Coral Gables. Because the power brokers will pay top dollar for a head coach, now!
Since I've recently discovered that Miami's power broker's are willing to pay TOP DOLLAR for a yet to be named head coach. I have to move the Hurricanes up a notch on the sexy appeal of current job openings. L.S.U. U.S.C. Miami, Florida Virginia Tech The field.
Why do I have a sense that Miami is going to hire Mario! Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | November 25, 2015 at 10:54 AM It ain't going to happen. And I can absolutely guarantee it based on the info I've perused above. Matter of fact, I lay odds of 2:5 that Mario Paterno isn't the next head coach at Miami!!!
When people say, pay Chip Kelly, I think that is no guarantee of a winning team. First, we remain in the ACC. We are cheated in practically every game by the referees, and this has been true regardless of coach, from Shannon, Golden and through Scott. That won't change regardless of coach. _____________ However, a Cane team with NFL talent can possibly defeat both the opponent and the corrupt ACC zebra's. Because the Hurricanes consistently defeated both their adversaries and the referee's back in the day. Remember the Cotton Bowl. No not the Alamo albeit that game seemed like a massacre to Longhorn fandom. And least Cane fan forgets. The NCAA specifically named a penalty for the Miami Hurricanes. It was mockingly called the MIAMI rule. I believe it was established circa ' 92 or '93. So I believe a marquee head coach can get the recruit the talent to defeat both game day fee, fi, foe's.

@AndySlater: Univ. of Miami willing to spend up to $6 mil per year on their next football coach --- that's what @unclelukereal1 just said on my show. Posted by: SinisterCane | November 24, 2015 at 11:02 PM Which means Chip Kelly could be Miami's next head coach!!
3. Mario I believe has zero chance. _____________ Hallelujah and thank Buddha and the Great Pumpkin!! Oh one more thing. I was wrong, again. lol Because I seriously thought the power brokers at Miami wouldn't be willing, to pay TOP DOLLAR for an established head coach. The bottom line is the Canes could return to major college football relevancy, in a NYC minute, when the home-run hire is accomplished!!
It's a fait accompli that Miles and L.S.U. will depart ways for the betterment of each entity. Thus I see L.S.U. as a better place than U.S.C. 1. L.S.U. 2. U.S.C. 3. Virginia Tech 4. Miami, Florida The Field FWIW... the powers that be in Blacksburgh WILL pay the money to hire an established, big name head coach.
I disagree with McFarland...MSU just beat OSU runnin'a PSO...and Stanford's kickin' @$$ runnin' a PSO. We've got the QB, and an O-Line, somewhat...we just need some more stud RBs, and a dominant TE. Posted by: CaneRock | November 24, 2015 at 02:37 PM However, you ignorantly forgot one item. Mighty Michigan St. has a D-E-F-E-N-S-E! Something Miami hasn't had under Golden. Matter of fact, the Spartans base 4-3/4-2 reminds me of those vintage Hurricane defenses of yesterday.
You always try to make it into some moral failing within the rest of us, yet you're the one who is in here day after day arguing with just about everyone. Again, it wears on people. Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | November 24, 2015 at 01:50 PM Literally lmfao!!!!! And I'll leave it at that. Otherwise I'll be chit-canned for the FIFTH time. lol
Yes he's winning this season but he's needed to go 8-3 this year to get to eight games UNDER .500 at Washington St. And can you imagine him having to answer 2 1/2 years of NCAA questions when he got here? Ugh. He's the kind of hire we are desperately trying to avoid this go round. ______________ Another lame opinion from this LAME guy!! smh Again, prior to Thee Pirate's arrival Twilight Zone Pullman, Washington. Both Colorado and W.S.U. were/are the worst football programs in the rugged PAC-12!! No ifs, buts or may be!! Yet Leach has somehow made the Cougars a respectable team in YEAR NUMBER FOUR. While Miami became WORST under Golden in season NUMBER 4!! Go figure. By the way, try getting decent recruits to Twilight Zone Pullman. It's a worst place than cow town Lubbock, Texas. lol FWIW... Mike Leach and the Canes would have WON three games against mighty F.S.U. this season and the past four seasons!! Absolutely guarantee it!!
We've got the higher ceiling. Posted by: j.w. | November 23, 2015 at 01:17 PM Yes, Miami has the higher ceiling. However, will the power brokers be willing to pay for that established, marquee head coach??!! Only time will tell. Or is that only William Tell will tell.
