The continued intensity of your feud and the tenacity with which U pursue “GD” is actually awe-inspiring, OGV. I’m not sure I understand WHY but I do give U points for consistency and dedication.

Elliott - LOL. Are U actually reading any of the posts? The blog articles? Where are all these “glass 1/2 way full” fans?!? The blog these days is not much more than everyone trying to out-do each other on sarcastic hipster witticisms and Revelations style doomsday pronouncements. LOL But everyone is right. It IS that bad! Just only so many times it can be said.

Imagine an alternative reality where we hired Mike Leach and kept Manny as DC...

Posted by: VA Cane | October 21, 2019 at 05:42 PM Beg to differ VA re: Fiesta Bowl loss. That was a typical “Glory Era” loss - Canes 10x more talented than opponent and didn’t properly prepare or take the opponent seriously. Think ‘86 Fiesta Bowl (maybe it’s just a fiesta thing?) or any one of 1/2 dozen games in that era where Cane hype, swag, over-confidence, etc. proved self-delusional. Canes have always brought the circus but when the circus becomes bigger than the game, the game has a way of humbling The U. Totally agree on the 05 Sugar Bowl. Even after the fiesta, Canes were the big bad boys of college ball. That game so completely punctured our image of invincibility like a steak knife to a balloon that no one, Canes included, believed in our Swag afterward.

CGNC: Give Enos some time. He’s had a lot of past success. It’s been frustrating and I was definitely WTF on several plays last night. But he was a legit hire and should pay dividends in time.

1st time HC. There was never any doubt that there’d be a big time learning curve. But did expect better showing vs C. Mich.

Too bad we can’t find a coach this clever

86 - gotta respectfully disagree. A program’s culture is everything. How do U think the Canes achieved a cut-throat, next man up, Uber competitive culture back the NC days? What you’re saying is don’t work hard just rest on your HS laurels your stars and get game time?!? Or am I misunderstanding U? Now, I won’t pretend to know about Manny - if he’ll become a good coach or just go bust like the others. And I don’t know much about the individual players and their situations. I’m sure U and other bloggers know more. But I do know that every place has a culture. The U’s culture right now is a loser’s culture. So that must change. Recommend U ask Dabo about changing the culture. Or Tom Herman. Then again... this is probably just 86 playing the old fox to stir the pot...nicely done sir

Canes have been searching for identify on offense for a decade. They had identity on D but seem to have lost it. Same old same old... pray CMD is The Guy and is figuring this sheet out. Every season that goes by without forward progress makes it more difficult to get “back”. Ask USC, Nebraska, etc. and don’t be deceived that paying the players will help even the competitive landscape for The U. The CA law will benefit the big schools immensely. If I am Jerry Jones (and every school has 1 or more) and Arkansas passes a law like CA’s, it’s going to be SO easy to ensure a certain players jersey or photo or whatever is purchased thousands of times...how much “legal” $$ can we put in your pocket young man?!? It’ll dwarf the current pay scale. Not saying players should or should not be able to benefit financially from their likeness. Just saying don’t bet on that to even the field for the little ol U

alpine: I think that’s the $100,000 question. I don’t know the answer and evidently neither does anyone else, at least anyone we’ve hired. I will say that the OL is weird. The best ones combine good to great individual athletes with a sense of teamwork and trust that isn’t needed on the DL. Communication and smarts is vital. That’s where experience comes in. Nothing is impossible but the best OLs tend to be groups with a lot of experience that have played together (or basically together) a lot. That’s why I couldn’t figure out the decision to start a QB that’s never played squat in college behind a line starting 2 freshmen. Sure those guys are all the future but against a legit, experienced DL like UF’s?? Baptism by fire but basically telling the newest grunts to take point. Good luck not getting killed.

Food for thought: 1. It’s a team game. Many things need to be done right by many players on every play to be successful. So many things being done “less than right” by all parts of this team makes it difficult to pass judgement on individuals. How do you truly believe the great Ken Dorsey would fare playing behind this OL? But even if he would be reduced to suckage status, that doesn’t mean either current option is good or has proven anything other than the lack of ability to rise above the circumstances. 2. CMD certainly hasn’t come out of the gate full throttle. But it is also extremely rare that a 1st time HC doesn’t go through some serious growing pains. Belichick wasn’t good at Cleveland and Saban’s 1st gig wasn’t LSU. Does that mean CMD will turn out good or great? Far from it. More fail than succeed. And it hasn’t been even average so far. But to think there wouldn’t be serious growing pains and lessons learned for a guy with 0 HC experience is or was delusional. Does that make him a bad hire? Yes. In the short run definitely. Jury is out about the long run. 3. As a former Big Ugly (current also but way past my prime lol), u all have heard me preach OL many times over the past decade +. It’ll never matter how many skilled and talented “skill” players we have until the OL is fixed. And we haven’t attracted the NFL HOF level skill talent in years - that is the level that can overcome poor OL play...not to the point of carrying a team to a NC or even CC, but to top ten level. We’ve needed an average OL to reach division champ status and a really good OL to go any further. What we’ve had has been seriously below ave. What we have had this season is serious crap. Build the OL or figure out how to work around it, as in go Spread always so all they have to do is pass protect. Until we do one or the other, our offense will continue to struggle and it won’t matter who is the QB. 4. The ACC will continue to work against us - not the ACC itself, drop the conspiracy bs - as in the best players want to play against the best for the best programs. It looked for a brief moment a couple of years ago that the SEC was slipping and the ACC rising. Alas, UA, UF, UG, AU, LSU, etc. have proven otherwise. Combine those programs with the resurgence of the Big 10 - OSU never falling off, rise of Wisconsin, Penn St, Michigan as perennial underachieving but top 20, etc. and the ACC barely tops the PAC-12 in the competition to the bottom. How many top kids now want to play in the ACC? Sorry for the length of this post. Been meaning to express some of this for a while. Great articles lately SOUP and great all around posts from Da Gang.
