Um there is NO way he will be here passed this year. We could very well end up with a losing record, that is suicide by Miami standards

I wish we could have let Coker go in midseason and made a run for Butch Davis, much like Florida did with Zook and thier pursuit in Urban Meyer "Weiner". But since that possibility is out of the question...

Greg Schiano - UM's former offensive coordinator. Yes, he's done wonders with the Rutgers (by recruiting heavily in FL) and is a NJ alumni, but I think given a choice b/w the two programs he'd come back to UM. Plus, he obviously has great recruiting connections in FL.

Dom Capers - Just a hunch tha he would like to be head coach again someday. And here's to hoping it would be in the NCAA.

I don't know about Schiano for 2 reasons.

First many analysts in college football have him dedicated to staying at Rutgers until the Penn St. job opens which they report he has much stronger connections to than UM.

In addition, NJ has a huge corp. community of boosters they can draw upon and it's reported these very deep pockets are willing to pay out the arse to keep him in NJ.

Secondly UM itself is a huge variable.

The UM admin has serious questions surrounding it as to what their plans are for the program. Many feel they are de-emphasizing the program. They'll try to keep it competetive but are not willing to go the extra mile it takes to keep the program a powerhouse.

If this is the plan of Shalalalah then you certainly won't see them pursuing and paying a hefty price for what is going to be one of the hottest coaches in college football after this year.

How the admin addresses this season and the types of coaches they attempt to bring in, if any changes are made, will tell the future of this program for a long time IMO.

I know Miami has the $$$ to spend, but I wasn't aware of Schiano's interest in Penn St. And I hope what you said about de-empasizing the program isn't true. If so, then someone needs to send that crazy b!tch packing.

We'll all be holding our breath this offseason for the U.

On another note, the Pata thing sucked.
I see you knew him.
Sorry for the loss man.
Out of all the trouble makers this team has had, this guy from all accounts was NOT one of them.

yeah..Pata was a good guy..everyone liked him...in the Miami-FIU Brawl, he was the one putting his teammates back and defending them..the same guy to run on the field and fired up Miami's offense in the GT game..smacking the Linemans and Kyle wright on the head..pumping them up

a true leader at heart..I still cant believe big fella is gone

well now that you saw the fiu brawl.. what just came to mind is do you think a fiu football alumni did this?

for example you never know what grudges those fiu players may have from that fight and embarrasing loss.... on tv they say pata had no enemies so im thinking can that brawl have triggered something?

tj whosyourmama said hes boys were gonna talk to mcree after that hit (someone here said that)in cali some people take football outside the field which is something that is complelety stupid and threathening thing to do.

By the way i dont want coker he sucks.

word on the street is he was canned the day before pata's murder, mr. 2 post guarantee man. that sounds like a good bud light commercial. anyway they're waiting until the end of the season to announce it, as dee has already said he would stick with coker and 'evaluate at the end of the year'. supposedly the evaluation is done. you can't get away with 5 losses at this U.

I was one of the main people saying Coker is gone after this season . . . however I am slowly starting to retract that statement.

I had no idea that Miami was paying off 2 basketball coaches as we speak (Not including the Bball coach we currently have). They just extended Coker . . . so to fire him, that would mean we have to pay off 3 coaches now. Combine that and trying to bring in a stud Head Coach for a minimum of 2 million a year . . . and I just don't see that happening.

Only chance I feel for us to get a coach is getting a up and comming coach . . . I have heard the dude from Tulsa is looking like a nice, affordable option with potential. Definetly under a million a year. All this Schiano talk, and even the Butch talk really doesn't seem to float with the money situation we have going on in the athletics department. So either Coker will be back, or a cheap guy like the Tulsa coach or even Randy Shannon are probably the options.

This is looking to be a tuff stretch for the Canes, we definetly need some luck this offseason.

Yea, I mean there isn't much to say. The team has talent . . . maybe not the same talent from years past, but they do have talent. What I saw today was disgraceful . . . especially on offense . . I mean we look like a high school football team with the playcalling I saw today, and the sad thing is . . . we actually "can" run the ball, but it is obviously clear now that something is wrong with the coaching, from coaching the players (especially QB) . . to coaching the game/play calls. Yea the offensive line isn't great in pass protection, but as good as they are in the run blocking dept. they should be coached up. Honestly I see some talented guys out there, and I know it has been a tuff, long, emotional season to say the least for this program but to play like the Canes played today is just unacceptable.

It is gonna be tuff for this program to replace Coker because there isn't alot of money to pay him off and get a big name coach . . . but after today's performance . . it is just too too obvious that the whole staff needs to just be shown the door and bring in a guy who can compile a staff and start this train over. The Miami program is back at one of its low points, and it will not turnaround with Coker, might as well go another direction.

The defense was getting gashed a bit today, but believe me when I say . . they are the only reason why Miami isn't being "blown out" every game. I feel for the D, they play their hearts out and no matter how good they play, it goes for none because the offense just can't move the ball, I mean that is as simple as it can get. This is college football, and when u can't move the ball thru the air atleast a little bit, u just can't compete, and that is where we are right now. HOnestly, the D is the only reason why we have won 5 games, because the offense IMO is possibly the worst offense outside of Temple in Division 1 football . . . and that is with a good running game. smh.

11-18-2006, 06:47 PM
well...the bucs have a lot of cap room coming up. and no one has been happy with gruden's decisions. so, i dunno if the glazers will be thrilled knowing the next 4-5 years of the franchise could rest in gruden's hands. they've made some AWFUL free agent signings (todd steussie, charlie garner, rob johnson...), and with the way the offense is being misused, and of course the dwindling crowds at games, wouldn't surprise me to see gruden axed...

Please, no Gruden, that non happy ******* can go back where he came from. He needs to get off his high horse and realize he'll never have what Dungy had in Tampa, which he's carried over into Indy. I don't want that grumpy ***** coaching my Canes:mad:

Spurrier Still Likely Heading to Miami

Sources say South Carolina coach heading to Hurricanes
Nov. 19, 2006


By Brian Curtis
CSTV

"Despite Steve Spurrier's denials today in his weekly teleconference, sources tell CSTV that he is still heading to the University of Miami to replace Larry Coker as head football coach. CSTV first reported the story last night on Gametracker Live and SEC Football Nation.

In his media teleconference this afternoon at 2:00 pm, Spurrier was repeatedly asked about the Miami job, and denied that he was a candidate. However, following multiple questions asking him if he is in interested in the Miami job, the coach never insisted he wasn't interested, but instead, tip-toed around the answer. I asked him to state that he is not interested in Miami and again, the coach failed to state that he is not interested. Spurrier also jokingly said that he hopes to be back at South Carolina next year, but that depends on the school's athletic director and president.

Despite Spurrier's denials, CSTV stands by its initial reporting and has, in fact, confirmed from yet an additional source very close to the situation that Spurrier to Miami is still likely to happen."

Hey man havent talked to you in a while.

That would be awesome, and an instant lift off the ground for the program. I really think we have enough talent to win games if we are coached right. Kyle Wright has the arm for the deep passing game and he looks really good at times....I think he hasnt been coached right. I like Kirby Freeman to, he has the mobility that Kyle doesnt, we held him back way to much last week.
