Anyone know what happened to Randy Shannon. I’m guessing he’s not at ucf anymore since they hired T-Will. But there’s no news on weather he quit or got fired. The latest news on him is from January.

I refuse to believe UNC is a sure loss for us moving forward. They’ve fucked us for 2 years, but it happens. We just need to beat them next year. They ain’t shit!!!

LOL! Was just on the Georgia Bull dogs 247 site. They r saying TS flipped to miami because he got a 150k bag. And check out the post below from one of their fans : eyeinthesky said... (original post)real rumors or you just come up with this? show more Tbf, the " U" cowrote the book on modern day recruiting warfare and crookedness with FSU. They only became relevant bc of this. Not saying this is why Stevenson bolted, but it be naive to dismiss this being a possibility. Thought it was funny when some years back they were supposedly going to be an academic school led by I believe one of the Clinton administration's sharpest minds. It was always just a matter of time. The media is begging for them to rearrive, the NCAA is not paying attention, and it has been a handful of years since the death penalty was hanging over their heads. Like FSU, the school is irrelevant without football.

I don’t get the narrative of ppl saying CMD ass is on the line because he will be calling the plays. That’s what he dis before he was moved up to HC, very recently too I might add. I do agree that the only game he’s really allowed to loose next year is the bama game. Yes he can loose 2 more, but he can also win those too. If he brought in a DC as good as he is, it would be considered a home run hire. And if he craps the bed with a DC calling the D plays, I still think he would be in trouble. So he’s fate is really tied to how we do next year, not who’s calling the D plays, as long as that person is good. IJS!!!!

Herb, i for one think he’s made some good moves. The only thing is, let’s see if works. If jimbo can call O play as an head coach, then let’s see. I don’t know y Zach is back. My guess is, he received an unstaffed free agent grade from the league and so manny is trying to help him compile a better film? All I got to say is, he better not be starting. We need to play more of the skilled young guys and get them developed. And if u don’t play them, they might get in the portal, pissed for not getting playing time over a suck-ass senior. He’s not going to do anything as a pass rusher either, what is he going to be, 5th in rotation? My guess for them not bringing in a new DC is money. They spent money for trench coaches and DB coach. They figure they can get Blake to coach LBs. after all, LB problem is not the skill or teaching, it’s the position they r put in by play calling during a game, as long as u don’t play McCloud. So I’m thinking manny hopes to fix that by calling the plays by himself. We balled out when manny called plays. He’s not going to be distracted from HC duties because BB is going to prep game plan during the week. LW&S!!

Just watched Paul’s scoop on the U. They were saying how they would be fine if DVD became the next DB coach. Are these not the same inbred, retards that scream about hiring manny as the first choice as head coach. Talking about how a first year head coach doesn’t deserve the job at the U. That is the fokcing flip flop with our fans. Go back to every coaching hire, same sheet!!

Y should we make Bandy DC? He can’t get his 1st head coaching gig @ a big school like miami. Utah state is good for him to learn. Look at the D coordinator of all our competitors. U r going against venebles with Banda. And please don’t bring up the manny getting head coaching gig at miami example. Different.

For those who question if manny could lead us to a chip, I believe he can. It’s not based on anything I see from him. But I’m just looking at DUMBO SWEETHEART. That guy looks dumb as Donald Duck & he built a championship team. And I get it, talking about looks is not the point. I just think his personality matches his face. I don’t think hes particularly a mastermind. Yes he hired good assistants, but duhh!! coaching 101! Anyway, that’s it. I blew my load!!

Next year, we got to go HAM on hose baby blue wearing, sister banging, straw chewing, backwards country trolls. That upside down U got me heated. Honestly, I was wishing one of our boys would have gotten mad & go old canes & punch their lights out. Next year, we’ve got to put Sam SHALLOW on a stretcher.

That game is similar to what happened to Shanon in the GT game in Atlanta, where they ran 500 yards all over us. Shanon came back the following year with Olivier Vernon on the D & stumped GT @ pro player. Counter is manny’s cryptonite, like Shanon’s was the option. Shanon adjusted for it & beat it. Many has to do the same. So whatever his scheme is, he must be able to adjust & well, counter it. Not really sure if that pun was intended.

No RCCF! Ed cannot. He has never been a coach. And that would be setting him up for failure too. Rumph is also a decorated ex player who actually is a coach. And look at where he is. Ed, like Ray, is a motivational speaker. He is best at his current role.

Didn’t we have the number 1 class with Jascory & sleepy pence class? What did they do. In my opinion, top 10 to top 15 classes r good enough to get u in the playoffs once every 4 years or at least finish in the top 10 every 2 years? Tell me if I’m wrong, but haven’t we been averaging between 10 & 15 ? What have we done with it. Like I said before, I’m at peace with how long it’s taking on us to get back on top. Honestly, I’ve gotten over the shock of the loss. We r due for one, once every 3 years. We just have to make sure it doesn’t break us.

Yea Herb! I think my initial calm is giving way to ‘pissed off-ness,’ if there was ever a word. Y r we recruiting a pocket passer of king has defined our need for a QB going forward, not unless they r hoping to improve his 40 times. This fruit reminds me of the guy Golden brought in who was a 4-star that ended up transferring due to lack of playing time. He looks like a future transfer portal candidate to me. I don’t mind getting QBs from the portal. Remember cam was a transfer from Florida that won the chip at auburn.

Herb, I stand corrected! I didn’t mean 07. I meant 2017. Before 17, our DTs sucked. Funny I feel like we’ve always had some descent LBs except for this year; Eddie johnson, perryman, quarterman. .

Herb, I hear u! But 15 years man!? I feel like if u r getting the same result for 15 years, then it’s a new reality. Not saying we stop looking for elite status. This is miami canes. It’s just that, if u r going somewhere, and the flight keeps getting delayed everytime u book for that trip, maybe u should look at a different mode of transportation. Train perhaps. The different mode of transportation in this case is our expectation of how we r going to get back to elite status. I think we keep freaking out everytime there’s a bump. I was just listening to a cane YouTube channel. And all of a sudden, we’ve had a D tackle problem for 5 years. I clearly remember having good D tackles dating back 07. This year has a fall off but Nesta played well overall. I think someone even criticized our TEs, over the last few years. There’s always an exaggeration, a collective freak out. Again, 62 points stinks. But it’s still not the first tine we’ve seen blow out of cane teams. And I think by now, we need to view these blow outs like we view once in century weather anomalies. We don’t pick up and move to other countries for it. Anyway....

VA, the way i see it, there is no choice. the school you go to is like your family, you r always on their side. besides, the way i see it, we have a lot more antagonists as canes fans. we need a balance. there r 99% 'fire breathers.' some of us have to bring calm. also, look at it this way, the definition of madness is doing the same thing again and expecting a different result. we have been waiting to get back to the top for 15 years. 6 years ago, i decided to stop following the pack and getting mad everytime we loose. it was evident to me it would take time. its too stressful to keep getting pissed off everytime also. i decided to accept our team for what it is. there is shit we do now that we've been doing since under howard & jimmy, like penalties, playng down to competition. we just have to look at this differently. forget this crazy blowout crap jobs that have been happening for years no matter what type of team we have. look at the type of team & organization we've had over the last 3 years and compare it to other eras over the last 15 years. i would say its been better this era. i have high blood pressure. i'm not trying to have a heart attack.

Miami is a hell of a program. If u come here & fuck up as a coach, u r done. Even smiley has not gotten consideration for an HC job since he left. And that’s considering that he has rebounded as a great DC after going to Arkansas, Florida, and helping to revive UCF. And when coaches do well here, they jump off to the NFL.

Remember the game against Washington in the orange bowl when we got run all over. Warren sapp played in that game. So we’ve been doing this a long time. We occasionally lay turds. But we come back. It’s cane nature.

Remember the ass kicking we gave the Irish at HR stadium. Well, no pun intended, but Irish eyes r smiling now. This will not bring us down. It’s a road bump, a big ass bump, yes, but still just a road bump.

LETTER TO MY CANE FRIENDS/FAMILY/ACQUAINTANCES I don’t know about u, but I will start this off by saying, the performance of my favorite sports team mirrors my life. U see, since I left UM, I’ve been struggling to be successful. I have a thousand skill set that I’ve mastered, but none of them has yet to turn me into a millionaire. I’ve tried different businesses. At times I show promise and start to pick things up & the next minute I fall flat on my face. And like my canes, I get emotional. Failures bring me down and affects my ability to reset. I bring this up because, I’ve come to learn to deal with my teams success with my mind set been, when I get my shit in order, then I will have the standing to demand that of my team. We have been living in this purgatory now for a good part of 15 years. I call it purgatory, because the canes are never a bad team. But accession to elite status eludes is. We take several forward steps. And then one big step seems to derail us. #STORY OF MY LIFE. But while I recognize and accept my debacle, so many of us r in denial about theirs, when it comes to tour mindset on our canes. I don’t know anything about any of u to say wether your lives mirrors mine outside of football. While a lot of u have forgotten more football X&Os than I ever knew, the spirit of my rant is not to address the X&Os. I will let posters like VA Cane, who was a coach, take the lead in that. And if your rational of the Canes is purely from a X&Os point of view, guess what, we’ve used different schemes and coaches for 15 years, different play calls, & our fate has not changed. Since clappy’s championship season, we have had instances of games like this. Not giving up 62 points of course, but embarrassing losses, especially when we start making progress. And then it comes, we lay a big turd. But this is very different. U have to look at the landscape of college football, look at our record of recruiting going back 5 years, and look at our record this season. By now, we all understand that getting back to mount championship is like eating an elephant, u have to eat one bite at a time. There is no microwave champions. We must come to understand that these embarrassing losses will come, no matter where we r up the ladder, until we get to the top of the ladder. But one slip up of one step of the ladder shouldn’t take us down 5 steps. We should hang on and keep climbing up. Enough with the firing coach talk, a coordinator or position coach, maybe. You need to move pawns in a game to win time to time. But I will not be party to the fire Manny talk. We r 8-2, an improvement from last year. We won some games too close for comfort. But those r the games we have lost in the past. That’s progress. Our recruiting is solid. That’s progress. Manny makes needed changes. That’s progress. Understanding that we r going to cough up badly like this sometimes till we get there, there is no better time or organization than this to move beyond this. We have so much other things going for us. And this might yet be another test. If we get up from this, it will solidify our back bone like never before. Remember how we destroyed Norte dame in that game at HR stadium. Look at Norte Dame now. The sky is not falling. We r not a disaster. Manny should not be fired. Blake James should not be fired. We don’t belong in the FCS. WE MADE PROGRESS. and we just need to keep climbing. As far as I’m concerned, our ascent up started coach richt’s 2nd year when we won the bowl game against WV. All in all, we’ve been on a upward trajectory since then. GO CANES!

This loss is on the offense as much as the defense. I mean. We were the masters of 3 & outs today. How do u send the defense out constantly. If they just scored 3s even, they would slow down the Tar Heels till the fourth quarter. By the time they started scoring, it was too late.

I mean, the kids r mistackling. The DL is rushing the passer instead of containing the runner. I don’t know that u can blame baker for that. The kids have to take responsibility at one point.
