Who is more foolish? The Pimp who keeps playing the recruiting blunder from down under or the fool who pays a website to read them put instances of the shift and the 8 key combination next to names of players who can't win football games?

Posted by: nemo2020 | January 22, 2020 at 11:06 AM No, I asked you first and, as I suspected, you don't have an answer. So I'm going to ignore you on the topic for the rest of the season now until you offer up a plan to improve the situation instead of rhetorical dead end on a joke of a non-solution complaint. Nice job Rod Miller, outplayed Vernon Jr., just barely, but that's the step in the direction he's got to go to get his team out of the place it's in with the defensive liability midget guards in the starting lineup sinking their chances as a program.

nemo, you complain about The Pimp every season the team isn't contending for a top four seed in the tournament but the halfway point is near so I'll just ask yet again: who are you proposing to replace the coach with?

If Tate Martell wasn't a complete bust of a QB, he might be D'Eriq King. The sid tard slurp squad talking about 'highest level' play is full of Fake Lames hand up their ass making their mouth move of course because here's his career starting QB record: 2017 W @#17 USF 28-25 (finished season 10-2, ranked #21) W ECU 52-27 (3-9) L @Tulane 17-20 (5-7 highest level QB play says the slurpers in the sid-tard squad!) W Navy 24-14 (7-6) 2018 (coach was fired despite all that 'top level QB play', sid tards blame D'No after frothing his nuts along with fatso for five seasons in Miami because that's what Fake Lames made them do with his hand up their ass) W @Rice 45-27 (2-11) W Arizona 45-18 (5-7) L @Texas Tech 49-63 (5-7, coach was fired) W Texas Southern (2-9 cupcake game) W Tulsa 41-26 (3-9) W @East Carolina 42-20 (3-9) W @Navy 49-36 (3-10) W #21 USF 57-36 (7-6) L @SMU 31-45 (5-7) L Temple 49-59 (8-5) 2019 L @ #4 Oklahoma 31-49 (12-2 ranked #6) W Prairie View A&M 37-17 (6-5 cupcake game) L #22 Washington State 24-31 (6-7) L @Tulane 31-38 (7-6) 11-7 (9-7 outside of cupcake payoff games)lifetime starter. Average record of teams he started against comes in at a whopping 5-7 range, can't make this garbage up the sid tard slurp squad is quintuple posting to parrot Fake Lame's talking points with! Also I see it's that time of the year when useless star gazing is tallied up for players who are done as pro football athletes after they were drafted already to pretend subscription websites are useful for anything but entertaining their paying subscription base with news they want to read, always useless posting that never stops from the usual suspect . . .

https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-end-of-year-accountability-the-good-bad-and-ugly-of-2019-predictions/ "The ugly: Miami winning the ACC Coastal The Hurricanes had as many division titles in 2019 as it had points in the Independence Bowl loss to Louisiana Tech -- zero. I didn't see that coming in August when we made our picks. I had Manny Diaz going 10-2 and winning the ACC Coastal in his first season with the program before losing to Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. Maybe they should learn how to block and find a quarterback who can complete forward passes? Just a thought." Slurp squad defense force, activate!

Scoring is hard; "Kameron McGusty arrived slightly ahead of Lykes as the Hurricanes' leading scorer (15.4) but finshed with two points on 1-for-9 shooting." 'Terrance...if I could get a big box and put all of the great memories from our Canespace events and activities together in it, wrap it up and put a bow on it, I believe that it would be the greatest gift I have ever been given in my life.

Duke's a final four team. Miami is, at best, a bubble team. The NBA is likely going to analytically undervalue Vernon Jr. to its own detriment. James Jones should draft him to Phoenix and pair him with Ayton for this era's version of a Robinson/Duncan teaming. "Our best player, Chris "Mighty Mouse" Lykes, made 2 of 15 shots. Posted by: nemo2020 | January 05, 2020 at 09:10 AM" That's not their best player. It's probably Kam McGusty right now, who also didn't play well and is struggling with turning the ball over too much currently. Probably because Miami had zero match up advantages at any of the five positions in the game last night, just a thought . . . Oh right, new coordinator, meh hire until he can show he's fixed the recruiting deficiencies in the program, which means check back in three years if he's still employed. Glass half full: offenses under his direction are often efficient, meaning they move the ball and then get points off the field position more than an average offense would. Glass half empty: Did you watch the left tackle pretend he was Matt Pipho last year? Did you watch Donaldson eat himself into range of 400 pounds last year and not be able to earn a yard constantly at the goal line despite that? Coordinating that out of the offensive playbook takes more than technique instruction at regular intervals . . .

Posted by: Terrance M Sullivan | December 31, 2019 at 07:13 PM 45 minutes. A very clutch quarter hour. Vernon Jr. is in better overall physical condition than Nelson was last year though so we'll see how they defend the next one to try and keep that winning streak intact.

Larry Coker Posted by: raizecane | December 27, 2019 at 09:08 AM This will probably come as a surprise to you, but, did you know? Manny Diaz is the son of the former mayor of Miami? Which makes him qualified to buy drinks for the over-promoted-peter-principle-ticket-distributor at a bar on South Beach north of 12th street and nothing else. "Posted by: CGNC | December 27, 2019 at 10:03 AM" Rodriguez and Fedora would both be acceptable as coordinators at this stage in their respective careers. Yost is a meh hire to me if it happens, but the real problem now has become recruiting and a new coordiantor is going to have no impact on that for a while so it's Titanic deck chairs until the line can improve enough as a platoon to block at a remedial level offensively. Today is the portion of this horror movie where Vilma cusses out the rest of the moronic bots gathered around him that you fucking throw him open to the scoring lane off the rebound and get him the fucking ball for the easy layup next time in no uncertain terms. Aka the possible turning point in the story so far, but then again... https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/28375524/miami-ad-gives-manny-diaz-vote-confidence-says-changes-necessary This headline means the program is still screwed!

Shaq Quarterman always impressed me. The Bulldogs were the reason why 2000 UM was kept out of the BCS title game for not running it up on them more than they did in computer polls at the end of the regular season for the final rankings for the bowl selections that year. https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/boxscores/2000-10-28-miami-fl.html Now they're the reason the overpromoted-peter-principle-coordinator had yet another loosing football season under the AD's watch. Fake Lames should be fired and left in shame on the Shreveport regional airport tarmac.

"'Enos is sabotaging the offense by not playing the QB I want him to!' (Plays all three scholarship QB's to try and get points on the board with one of the worst OL's in the 2000's at UM) ------> *crickets*" No wonder the scan and skip list is so long now these days.

Posted by: CGNC | December 26, 2019 at 06:17 PM I don't necessarily think they can even upgrade from Enos at this point realistically. But, if you HAVE to make a change (so the over-promoted-peter-principle-coordiantor can point his fingers and try to grovel to save his job for another garbage season of football), Art Briles. Won't happen because the moronic bots would wad their knickers and choke on their crumpets and Fake Lames is a useless ponce on top of that, but it gets you another former head coach as coordinator to carry the useless head coach's share of the load who has done more with less.

"That last play with Williams where he made the ball live....what?! Posted by: CGNC | December 26, 2019 at 05:51 PM " He might be a quarter and change away from being done at the school but Dan Enos got all over the QB for that moronic play that could have only gone bad and had no chance of working out on the way to the locker room immediately. Wish he hadn't been undercut by the horrible recruiting/development or lack thereof in the trenches this season tying both his hands behind his back on the playcall sheet but oh well . . .

This is why you never, ever, promote from within, no matter how much Fake Lames feels like he's buddies with the overpromoted-peter-principle-coordinator, off a staff that never won shit. At least you'll save on canceling the garbage home schedule season tickets in 2020.

This shitty season can't end fast enough and Tom is now putting as much effort into his post research as the athletic department does into winning: none. Louisiana Tech is nicknamed the Bulldogs, they play in CUSA, and are coached by Skip Holtz. The Raging Cajuns are from Lafayette, not Ruston, LA, play in the Sun Belt, not CUSA, and are coached by Billy Napier. That is all.
