He also seemed very passive aggressive when he was rocking the turnover chain on ESPN.
Slimm, you know I love you but this post didn't age well lol
He thinks college football doesn't need the canes he made that clear
Good win guys....I was impressed!!!
It sure didn't. Enjoy it while you can, you won't get to often. Most of mine over the past decade have aged very well.
It's just nice to get to watch meaningful football. The canes are fun to watch and in contention. I'm relatively young so that's been a rarity between the canes and fins.
I know, Bama fans think they're the only team worthy of playing for a national championship every year.
I'm pretty confident in saying I think the Canes will be playing for one every year as well. Richt is only getting started, he's done more with Al Golden's players than Al Golden did, he's got a lot of freshman and Sophomore's playing, he's got an outstanding class coming in next year. He'll be able to recruit a better class of player at Miami than he did in Georgia...and before you say he had great players at Georgia, South Florida produces way more talent, every school comes down to South Florida to recruit, all of the Canes national championships were built on South Florida kids. I haven't seen too many national championships won without some South Florida kids on the roster.
Howard Schnellenberger had moderate success until he came to Miami, never duplicated after he left.
Jimmy Johnson had moderate success until he came to Miami (pretty sure he went 8-5 his last year at Oklahoma State before coming to Miami)
Dennis Erickson, moderate success. Never duplicated after he left.
Butch Davis was an unknown. Never duplicated his success after he left.
Those 4 had a plan, knew how to build teams from the bottom up and they could recruit. Richt has all those same attributes. The last three coaches have lacked one or all of those abilities.
Richt is a year ahead of plan IMO. I expected a 9-3 or 10-2 season with a chance at the ACC championship game with them really making noise next year. With the Canes getting back in the national spotlight things are going to get really fun from now on. The Canes of old put a whooping on teams when they played in primetime games with the whole country watching...these Canes brought back those memories. Best recruiting tool you can have.
What I find fascinating is that all these people who declared VT and ND vastly superior to the Canes are mostly back pedaling now or doubling down. The Canes not just won both games they completely destroyed VT and ND. If not for a softer approach in the second half it could have been much worse.
“Having been around the program the past few years, I have never seen anything like it,” said Andrew Ivins from 247Sports. “Kids who really had no interest in the program, along with commitments to other schools, came out.”
Indeed, with elite prospects such as St. Thomas Aquinas standout Asante Samuels (FSU) was there. So was South Dade elite defensive end Patrick Joyner (FSU) and the Plantation American Heritage trio of Pat Surtain, Jr., Tyson Campbell and nationally-rated sprinter and football prospect Anthony Schwartz.
In past years, Miami had to keep in close contact with all its recruits, realizing that they could jump ship at any time. That is certainly not the case for the top 5 Class of 2018 group they have – or the 2019 prospects.
“What Miami has done is start to make it special to be here in Coral Gables,” Dana Wiley of PrepFilms pointed out. “In the past few years, kids were getting offers that had many shaking their collective heads. Now, under Coach (Mark) Richt, it is an honor to get an offer from this school – like it was back in the successful days.”
I may take National Signing Day off work next year . . . Could seriously see some flipping to the U that day.
You can't keep doing the straw man thing if you want to have any type of back and forth. You're seemingly incapable of posting without talking in extremes and exaggerating. Now I know why I've been around here 9 years and never really had a conversation with you. You just want to argue, and I'm usually not that bored. This will probably be it for me unless it changes.
Nobody declared ND or VT vastly superior to Miami. Just that Miami COULD lose either of those games, along with Clemson. Which was a perfectly reasonable take. They usually do lose those games. They lost both last year.
Turns out Miami dominated both teams. They won. What exactly the hell do you want people to do or say? We can't hand Miami the national championship trophy today. You still haven't won sh^t yet. Nobody has.
It's obvious Georgia and Notre Dame were both a little overrated. But so has been everybody else that's been ranked in the top 4 at any point this season....except Alabama.
It appears we know one thing for sure though, Notre Dame really is probably 1 point worse than Georgia. But neither belong in the top 4.
All Miami has to do is keep winning and prove they're the best team in the country if that's really who you or they believe they are. If they do, everybody else will believe it too.
However, there's still too much football to be played for all these top teams. A slip up against one of these lesser teams undoes everything they've accomplished. We see it happen every week.
Go back and read my posts before the start of the season last year. Before anyone played a single game. I said it was Bama and Clemson, then everybody else was significantly below those two teams. That's exactly what happened.
At the end of last season after Clemson won over Alabama, I said there were going to be 5 or 6 teams that were all bunched up together this year that could win it. There was no clearly dominant team or teams. That's exactly what's happening.
We still don't know exactly who the top 4 teams are going to be, but we're gonna find out. So relax. Quit being so damn argumentative constantly. And win something.
We already have some studs in the 18 class like 5 star RB Lingard , WR Mark Pope and TE Bevin Jordan along with four 4 star DB's and that's not including 5 star Campbell who's leaning Canes. Our recent play will attract a few flips as well I believe. They are seeing that freshman play early and with Miami on the rise they'll be playing in big national games on a bright stage.
When the year started I think all of us thought we'd be good but take it to the next level when these guys got here well Richt is a year of schedule which is great to see.
The players at Georgia weren't the problem while Richt was there. The problem unfortunately was Nick Saban.
Lucky for him, he don't have to worry about that in the ACC, and I'm sure he'll do well. But know this...Saban will always hand pick one or two he really wants from South Florida. That's all he needs.
To be fair slimm you did actually say Notre Dame was gonna win not could.... I think Richt will win titles here and that's not outlandish. Coaches improve, you can't just say he never won 1 before so he will never win one. Honestly I think Miami is a better recruiting location then Georgia. We'll see
That's right, and I said I deserve whatever all you clowns were ready to dish out because of the way Miami played.
But every other post for a week this guy has been adding or subtracting to what was actually said. One exaggeration after another. It's a pattern with him.
my comment wasn't directed at you anyways. So I have no idea what your problem is.
Meanwhile in a bunker located deep inside the SEC
Aging like fine wine , Jenny from the Rock
I will never comment on anything negative regarding Richt again. What he has done with this program in two years is nothing short of remarkable. I can't wait until this roster is flooded of his guys completely. He has brought hope back to South Florida sports.
I've been going to Dolphins games since I moved here from Jamaica when I was in elementary school. Had season tickets for over 10 years. Saturday nights game was the most fun I've ever had in that stadium. Truly reminiscent of the OB.
Strongly considering a road trip for the Clemson game.
Already got my tickets.
I am thinking about it.
I'm sure thats a pretty penny to go to
You can get in for about $100 a ticket if you just care to get in the building.
That will continue to rise though as the days go by.
Not even a seat? Wow I'm not rich lol
Haha yea that should get you a seat, not a greatt one, but you will be there and that is all u really need.
Lower endzone around 250, middle level endzone around 200, upper endzone around $100.
Upper sideline starting at 150.
Thats actually not bad
There are several player interviews under this video as well.
I just love his PCs. It's always interesting listening to him. Keeps it easy, casual, funny.
BTW he is right the Virginia game is a near sellout. Most sections are sold out and those sections which are not have very limited availability. I can't recall a noon home game outside FSU which was almost sold out in the last 10 years.
Latest playoff standings:
(I still believe it means nothing)
1) Alabama (+1)
2) Clemson (+2)
3) Miami (+4)
4) Oklahoma (+1)
5) Wisconsin (+3)
6) Auburn (+4)
7) Georgia (-6)
8) Notre Dame (-5)
9) Ohio State (+4)
10) Penn State (+4
You have to think if Wisconsin loses that a 1 loss Miami would make the playoffs
Got my ACC title game tix.
I'm glad we're #3. Team plays better with a chip. We undoubtedly deserve to be higher than Clemson though. Not even debatable. Our resume is better and we're undefeated. Whatever. That's one team I don't fear. Their front 7 is arguably the best and their two running backs are very good, but all we have to do is stop the run and force Bryant to beat us. Bryant sucks as a QB as much as his brother's attitude. Wouldn't be surprised if we blow them out.
Who you callin #3 ???
The ranking is fine. We play #2.
Virginia is sold out or close so that's good and I think we win but they might hang in there and put up a good fight. They usually do.
Historical fact: The last game the Canes played in the Orange Bowl was against Virginia. They smashed us something like 44 to nothing.
We do owe them an *** whipping
The Pittsburg game will probably be played in snow. Many of these young men have never seen snow. Could get interesting in a bad way.
Win these and no matter what it was a great 11 win season. **** that ... win them all.
Got to take care of business then worry about Clemson who opens as 51/2 point favorites.
Another interesting tidbit:
if Miami wins out and Georgia wins out they may end up 1 and 2 in the playoff standings and a possible face off for the National Championship. Richt might put a uniform on and will play himself.
Even if both teams lose the #2 ACC team plays the #2 SEC team in the OB Classic at Hard Rock i think.
Obviously Rather play them for the Natl title but that not's a bad fall back position to have.
I paid $225 for mine off of stubhub...section 231. Make sure you get on the coastal side...that's the Canes side.
For those who go to my link in post 8230 the coastal side is the home side (Panthers).
What row are you in? Stubhub doesn't have the 231 available anymore but the stadium site does.
