SI calling for a change It's definitely time for a change in Coral Gables. Watching Miami warm up last week for its game against Virginia Tech, the volume of pure athleticism on the roster was shocking. Put Miami's players in generic uniforms next to the players from Auburn, LSU or Oklahoma, and you wouldn't know who played for which team. Yet in Randy Shannon's fourth season at the helm, the Hurricanes are 7-5 and have yet to win even the ACC Coastal division. It's a shame, because Shannon has done everything right but win. His players graduate. They behave. They represent the school perfectly everywhere except on the field. The bottom line is this: Shannon produced a seven-win season with an 11-win roster, and The U can do better. Who should the Hurricanes pursue? Mike Leach is jobless in Key West, but the Hurricanes don't need to be an Air Raid team to win. They can collect the talent to run a pro-style system. Which brings us to Miami alum Mark Richt. Richt makes more at Georgia than Miami could ever pay, but Miami could offer a fresh start for a coach who never satisfied Bulldogs fans -- even with six double-digit win seasons in 10 years. Mississippi State's Dan Mullen is another possibility, especially if he can convince Bulldogs' defensive coordinator Manny Diaz -- the son of Miami's former mayor -- to come along to Coral Gables. Mullen may prefer having an SEC job, but Mississippi State will always chase Alabama, Auburn and LSU for players in the SEC West. Win at Miami, and the four- and five-star athletes will beat a path to your door. Shannon has had ample opportunity to return Miami to prominence, but he hasn't gotten the job done. It's time to give someone else a chance. Read more:

Many believe it to be a nickname given during the U.S. Civil War, because of the state's importance on the Confederate side, and the fact that the troops "stuck to their ranks like they had tar on their heels"….. Another legend has it that the troops ran so fast trying to get away from the battle that “all you could see was the tar on their heels”. There are at least 2 sides to every story. LOL
Posted by: Chris | October 14, 2010 at 07:01 PM Good Post Chris – I also want to add that the FSU game was the first game for the U with only 7 days between games so they had less time to recover. But you are trying to be logical with a bunch of folks with boiling (orange and green) blood in their veins. LOL
Wow! Last week we were pre-empted by the soccer game, tonight we are switched to the USC game! We are not back yet, that is for sure. Regardless of today’s result, the Canes control their destiny. Win out the rest of the ACC games and they will be in Charlotte on December 4!
No surprises in the commentaries. Desmond has been sipping our Kool-Aid. Today is our coming out party and the Nation will witness it! I am off to the game!
It's all about the U baby! LOL
Showers with thunderstorms likely this afternoon. It won't matter! The U 35 to 24
I just got back from the AllCanes Party in Columbus. So they sold 500 pre-paid tickets instead of the advertised 200 – it took a while to get in, but it was worth it. It was good to see a bunch of Orange and Green in one place. I saw her across the room and she stood out. I approached her as she came across to get some beverages and asked her the question What is your name? Her answer confirmed it, she smiled and said “ Mary knows football” The previous pictures did not do her justice! I asked her to come back to the blog, she smiled! I asked her if I could take her picture and she said yes – I told her I would post it. Soup! Blood is thicker than water, we all bleed orange and green, get her back! Go Canes!
The chance of rain for Saturday afternoon is 30% That is about the same chance the U has of losing the game This is a different Team, enjoy it!

This is a different Team! The boys are grown up, it was a process! They can hold their own and then give some! If you are coming to the game, hope to see you at the allCanes party!

We will be outnumbered 20 to 1 in the stands, but it will not make a difference on the field. The U 35 to 24. I will be in section 15D, row 7 Go Canes!

Does anyone remember Sabino? He will be a Jr. this year and has been a ST player the last 2 years for OSU, he didn’t redshirt. He is making some noise this year at spring practice because he is reacting more than thinking (think AB) as he competes for the SAM. Another highly touted linebacker not fulfilling expectations? Apparently he is only 19 years old, and a redshirt would have benefited him.
Soup, I will take a DVD
