Cougar Hunting

Brody-The-Graduate-1200Happy Holidays Canes Fans! I’m sure most of you have been busy this time of year as I have as well. I apologize for not posting sooner but with a week before kick-off for the Canes Bowl game, I figured I better put some things aside and get this article done.

Way back in the days after Randy Shannon was relieved, then president Donna Shalala received a newspaper marking the his dismissal. It was from a friend Donald Trump. On it he wrote in marker across the article,”You should have hired my friend Mike Leach!” OK, thanks but no thanks. Leach runs an offense that is wide open. Not something that would go to well with the Canes faithful. Yes there are other issues/reasons we probably stayed away from Leach but I won’t get into them. What I do want to discuss is some of the players that have lead the Cougars to not only an impressive 8-4 mark in 2015, but also what one would consider some quality wins over teams such as Oregon, UCLA and Arizona Sate but also suffered some head scratching loses to Portland State and Washington. Like we have seen to many times over the past few seasons in the Canes, wondering what team will show up for Washington. Let’s look at a few of the players who will take the field for the Cougars and need to play well for them to have success in the Sun Bowl this coming Saturday at 2:30 eastern.Β 

Quaterback – Luke Falk. After suffering a severe concussion in late November, Falk will lead the offense labelled “The Air Raid”. Falk earned all-conference QB honors and has lit up the scoreboard this season throwing for 4,266 yards and 36 touchdowns despite missing the final game. As much as he passes having only 8 interceptions shows how he has developed over his short career.

Falk is not a threat to run.

Receivers – As mentioned when you have an air raid type offense, your receivers are going to show some big numbers as well. Gabe Marks enters the game with 99 receptions for over 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns. Along side Falk also has Dom Williams who checks in with 73 receptions for 997 yards and 11 scores.

No doubt the Cougars will have 2 players with over 1,000 yards receiving for the year.Β 

Running Back – The Cougars aren’t necessarily a run oriented team but when they due it is usually in the form of Gerald Wicks who has just about 600 yards rushing for the season. He is a threat to catch the ball out of the backfield and has 36 receptions.

Defense

The Cougars will yield about 200 yards rushing and 225 yards passing on average per game. There defense usually sees a lot of time due the nature of the offense. What is impressive as I look through the defensive stats is the amount of tackles for loss they have, 96 for the season or 8 per game. Two players may reach the 100 tackle plateau for the season. As mentioned they will see a lot of time on the field.

Peyton Pelleur – Peyton is a 4th generation player for the Cougars. He leads the team with 98 tackles with 11 for a loss. Very impressive numbers for a sophmore.

Jeremiah Allison – Entering this contest with 91 tackles, Jeremiah has a shot at hitting the century mark in tackles. He also has 5 tackles for a loss. Side note on Jeremiah, he was heavily recruited by Yale. Bright future for him.Β  Image result for Jeremiah allison

Shalom Luani – A Juco transfer, Shalom from American Samoa, starts as a Junior in the safety position. He checks in with 86 tackles and also 3 interceptions. Seems like he covers a lot of ground.

I believe if Miami is to be successful against the Cougars, they will have to play a slow tempo game. If this game turns into a shoot-out it will play into the hands of the Cougars. As much as I hate to admit it, this team compares well to the Cincinnati team Miami faced on a Thursday night early on in the season. The Canes are a better team now then they were at that point. These two team should provide what a lot are expecting to be one of the more exciting bowl games of the season.

Go Canes!

    I’m pretty exited for the game. WSU has no interest in running the ball so let’s see if they unleash the pass rushers in Mark D’Onofrio’s last ever game at Miami. They struggle with up tempo teams but tend to play better against one dimensional offenses. Still, the offense is going to have to take advantage of a piss poor Wazzu defense. They’re going to need to light it up to win. I’m thinking at least 38-40 points if they want to win it.

    I’m sure he’ll just space out the D-line so they can easily run straight into the offensive lineman across from them. I’ll never forget Wake Forest running splits so wide you could drive a truck through them but not a single D-lineman ever shot through a single gap to make a play.

    Courtel Jenkins gets ruled academically ineligible in his Senior year with no pro future in site? Jamal Carter is set to be a returning leader on the defense and he’s sent home? And what is up with Tyre Brady?

    Still weird that they just now ruled Jenkins ineligible. Classes have been over for a few weeks already. It doesn’t take that long to find out whether or not you failed a class.

    Since pretty much none of these coaches are getting retained, I’d have kept Jamal Carter there anyway. Might as well throw discipline out the window since you’re gone after the Sun Bowl anyway. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Richt is bringing running backs coach Thomas Brown, director of player personnel, Todd Hartley, receivers coach Bryan McClendon and special teams coach/tight ends coach John Lilly. Brown is expected to become co-offensive coordinator. Looks like Coley is gone, and unless they shuffle some position coaches around, so are Larry Scott and Kevin Beard and probably Tim Harris.

    Carter must’ve done something stupit down there SMH.

    Brady has been dopey all yr…not surprised.

    You must be borderline retarded to get ruled academically ineligible these days.

    Beyond comprehension…

    Richt will have his hands full reigning in these bytches. Luckily we have a good group for the most part with just a few dildos sprinkled in.

    I’m in the “get rid of everyone” camp. No one on this current staff has impressed me to the point of viewing them as a “must have”.

    If anyone is kept for recruiting purposes, just thow them in as admins. None of them deserve anything, as far as on the field props go and I am not even sure any of them deserve to stay for recruiting either.

    Esteban- Maybe Calvin Huertolou (sp?) It seems like there’s been a conga line of mediocre defensive tackles since about 2009. I have a hard time distinguishing one from the next because none of them ever stood out.

    As for academics, any time your GPA falls to 2.0 or lower, you’re considered on academic probation. You risk getting kicked out of school or losing your scholarship if your GPA stays below 2.0 for more than one semester. That said, the coaching staff and athletic department usually make sure the dumb-dumbs take the right classes from the right professors to keep them academically eligible. However, they can’t actually do the work or take the tests for the kids (unless you’re at UNC) so even the easiest courses still require effort. Also, you’re required to earn minimum credit hours per academic year to remain eligible, so even if you’re getting good grades, you have to be careful if you drop a course and reschedule it for another semester.

    The Butler part of it is the most annoying.

    http://kenpom.com/

    Miami 10th in SOS, Butler 20th.

    Miami had one set of bad calls and a lucky last second shot for our one loss.

    Butler got crushed start to finish in their loss, yep, Miami TROUNCED Butler.

    Yet other than CBS, the polls all have Butler ahead of Miami.

    Miami SOS 55, RPI 15
    Butler SOS 98, RPI 25

    http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/gametracker/live/NCAAB_20151122_BUTLER@MIAMI

    Look at that game flow, we were up double digits the whole game AND held back their final flurry, where they did not score from the floor again after getting it to 76-72.

    And as for the Northeastern game, when a team shoots 54% from three, yet the refs give them a 22-9 FT advantage, while they are the road team, it is a miracle they needed a last second shot to win it at all.

    Miami > Butler, on the floor, in SOS, in RPI, and everywhere except in the polls.

    Hopefully, our historical trouncing of LaSalle will reimind the pollsters that Miami is not deserving of being skipped in the NCAAs this year as well.

    The change in offensive play calling and formations alone should net a couple extra wins … not to mention the change in philosophy on defense

    Can’t wait to see some good ‘ol power formations and play action instead of the RBs having to run into a murderous “red rover” game of defensive players waiting for them on that sidecar formation hand-off bullsh*t

    The new Star Wars was f*cking fantastic by the way – thank you JJ Abrams for bringing it back to what it should be, not the idiotic Jar Jar Binks/Anakin Skywalker Growing Pains f*ckery that it was

    I remember literally saying very loudly in the theater in Episode One when little kid Anakin was blowing sh*t up by accident in the hangar – “what in the hell is this garbage?”

    Talked to Chase Litton today as well – remember bringing him up a few times on here when he was the QB at Wharton High here in Tampa with Vernon Hargreaves 3rd … he was dying to be a ‘Cane, didn’t get the offer, always said that if he were at Plant High or Manatee High in a better offense with better coaches, he’d have gotten a lot more fanfare

    He’s the starting QB for Marshall now, thrown for a Marshall Frosh record 22 TDs and almost 2,400 yards this season

    Glad to see he got a chance and knocked off the knucklehead crap he pulled in high school

    They are going to get their yds and points, no way around that, we have to play solid in all three phases and act like we give a fuk.

    Shutting that team out in the second half was a xmas miracle and to not take advantage of what was given and dumb it away like that, is the worst way to go out.

    WSU was begging to lose that game.

    In much better news, looks like we are locking up coach Kuligowski.

    Love what he brings to the table. Mizzou DL have been savages under his watch and you know they don’t recruit for ish. That tells yo all you need to know.

    Then factor in Bama’s recruiting/depth and overall program vs Mizzou and you will have your answer.

    Oh and btw, getting beat up by Bama happens quite a bit lately.

    They are a pretty good program these days.

    I’m skeptical by nature. Not sure how people haven’t learned this yet. Because someone did good at a place that doesn’t recruit well in a 3-4 doesn’t mean it’s going to translate in a hotbed of talent running a 4-3.

    After watching the bowl game, I’m cool if they totally clean house. I’m tired of being dead last in penalty yardage every year. Having touchdowns and big plays wiped off the board every game because some ass head on the other side of the field, nowhere near the play couldn’t restrain his urge to illegally block someone. I’m tired of being dead last in third down conversions. I’m tired of the offensive line not being able to run block against the some of the worst defenses in the nation. If there’s a positive to the bowl game, it’s that the defense was really stout. Even after they ejected Jenkins for targeting (with his fingers, apparently). But otherwise, the whole game was a huge snow turd.

    Kuligowski is going to be a night and day change compared to what we’ve had. He specializes in getting undersized linemen into the backfield for negative plays. Despite not having premier talent, Mizzou is usually among the leaders in sacks and TFL. The drawback to that style is power rushing attacks can easily bully undersized lines that put premiums on quickness. The talent he’ll be working with at Miami should be able to offset that problem since premier athletes like Chad Thomas and AQM can still play very fast at 265 pounds instead of having to rely on a the Michael Sam type, 240 pound defensive ends to apply pressure.

    Good moves by our underclassmen this year. #8 could be looking a big jump in his stock with a year in Diaz’s system. #3 better talk to Richt about Peter Warrick just in case coach wasn’t already thinking how he can use him the same way. and #29 should have more opportunities at INTs if our front gets after QBs like expected. All three could see a nice boost with these changes.

    Still the Senior who probably is happiest has to be Gus Edwards. Will be coming downhill at folk from the I formation a lot.

    Este, agree on all points.

    These dudes weren’t going anywhere… and glad they were given the right guidance here.

    Our offensive philosophy was so bland and boring under Coley. Dudes like Berrios and Coley can be game changers if used properly.

    Cager’s ceiling is unlimited as well as Njoku.

    Add in Bruce coming in and Mullins if he can qualify and there will be plenty of firepower for Richt to work with.

    Gotta put these kids in a position to use their strengths.

    Coley was so friggin blah and predictable…unless he was trying to throw HB passes in blizzard like conditions. Gotta give it to him, no one in their right mind was expecting that!

    Greazy Cuban…

    I also expect to see a huge improvement from our OL. They were done dirty by Kehoe and with some proper tutelage, these kids should flourish. There is plenty of talent there…

    Also, last night further proved that you need a QB that can get out of the pocket and gain some yards when needed. Doesn’t need the wheels of a Watson or Boykin but MUST be able to scramble for a first down once in a while.

    You have a statue back there and you are at a HUGE disadvantage.

    I think we are going to be limited win wise with FrankenKayaa behind the wheel.

    we need to add some DT prospects that can get up field. We have don’t have much depth at DT overall. Hopefully Earl Moore and Jelani Hamilton take to this scheme so for at least their senior years they can help us win some games.

    I wouldn’t mind a JUCO Safety. My confidence in Carter is pretty low. I feel good about Jenkins and am optimistic about Johnson, but aside from that I don’t have a clue and there isn’t much to have a clue about.

    Hargreaves is tiny. Joyner was tiny. Honey badger was sure enough tiny. If ya front 7 eats the DB’s will flourish.

    Agree on all fronts Este, Bennie and Hurri.

    Height don’t mean shyt when it comes to corner. Like Hurri said, you don’t want a squad of shorties back there but I am cool with one dude that is just a gamer.

    Bring in the ballas and sort them out later. Love kids that can play multiple positions and sports in HS.

    Greg Reid was an animal at FSU. Just a play maker plain and simple. Telvin Smith was the same way. @ 210 lbs at LB but a disruptive play maker. Goergia kid and loved what he brought to the field.

    We need more dudes like that across the board.

    Hurri good points on Richt and recruiting. He def has that part of the job on lock. Start winning games and kids down here will be beating down the door to get in.

    Time to fire this hoopty back up.

    Who is in for the Notre Dame game next yr? I can do some more Chicago time TBH. Loved that city and nothing would be better than to roll up on those kid touchers and burn that fugger down.

    Agree about Young but glad dude cut his dreads. Playing multiple positions and the hairstyle (though not athleticism) reminded me of DC and can say I am sad to see him go. Good kid, ehh player.

    This kid is visiting this weekend and is another GA commit I would love to flip. Watch him highpoint the ball (though video camera work/angle is ehh). Not much depth at WR and he provides something we don’t have. Jones can than be told to kick rocks (he might be in that same senior situation as I mentioned above with Moore) and maybe Langham too (though this is probably his make or break year). And got to love the name Juice Wims.

    Hurri – Antonio Crawford.

    Este – I think being on STA actually hurts kids sometimes in terms of helping them show out since the team is so stacked and they spread it around. While it was the shorts circuit, he always was getting accolades for his elusiveness, burst and hands. And watching UA game he did standout even against that competition. He does not make or break class, but I think he is one that you want vs. are ok with walking. He is also Richt’s first test in terms of keeping a stud home. I think if Richt keeps him and they someone get Cook from Central, the rep from that will create the needed buzz amongst fans. Also, still not sure Mullins makes it in, despite what is said. When you have to sit out a year because of academics, have to really hope kid got his act together.

Or does anyone suffer from or know anyone that suffers from extreme anxiety or depression that they could register their animal as an ESA?

    It’s a odd question, but, there’s a second part to it. We’re doing a story on it for our news

    January 16, 2016

    JSQ – ah

    Here’s the deal. We’re doing a story about how certain apartments/condos even home owner’s insurance will not allow you to have certain breeds of dogs that they deem “aggressive” and how you can register your dog as an ESA in order to get around that

    Now, you can do it if you really do have PTSD or are anxiety/depression riddled or other cases as well with a doctor’s note from your therapist

    Or, you can go online and register your animal for $50 – $75, receive a certificate with your dog’s name on it, dog’s picture, a patch and a vest as well … and if they need a doctor’s note, you can purchase one for $125 – $150 on some sites – all you have to do is fill out a pretty simple questionnairre and they’ll write you one. Some of the questions are “do you ever get stressed at work … do you ever have a moment of depression .. do you ever have some anxiety … has there been an event in your life that has made you depressed” etc. So basically, you’re dropping the $125 – $150 to have them sign a letter saying yea, you need an ESA

    Some call it abusing the system or being immoral

    I call it a way to get back at all the apartments/condos and home owner insurance places that tell you your best four legged friend who has been in your family for X amount of years, been with you through good/bad, always happy to see you and bring a smile to your face, etc

    Just b/c my dog is half German half Pit, don’t f*ckin discriminate against him. Blame the owner of a bad dog, not the breed

    my nephew is Marine and fought in both battles of Fallujah and others in the maiming fields of Iraqs. Definitely had major league stress when he came back with raging temper over any aggravation. Yet, he never talked about his time there much. He wanted to be a cop, but my sister implored him not to even as she was gov’t Prosecutor (UM grad) who works and teaches cops. He went back to college instead but once he eventually born his first child and became a long term at home Dad, his temper disappeared.

    We’ve reported on almost as many labrador attacks on children as pit attacks

    Also, the absurd amount of money that some places charge as a pet fee – non-refundable – and also charge each month if your dog is over a certain weight … that’s another way to get back at them for pulling that bullsh*t

    Young does show promise, I am just saying this new breed has me excited. I wasn’t saying any of the three unseat anyone this year, but for instance, if Young doesn’t establish himself firmly, I think he may be passed up same time next year (note Shaq’s dad posts on CIS and says that the Miss. St. defense is what his HS team played. Since he is an EE and physically big enough to play, I just have to imaging that Young will have to show out to keep him off the field Year 2 since his learning curve to college will be less).

    I like the LBs we have coming back. Grace is proven. Owens has the size and movements skills you want. And looks instinctive enough to play any of the 3 spots. Young is a traditional MLB – packs a punch. Before he got hurt I was really liking the small sample size of Gayot – biggest surprise was his pass rush ability. Mike Smith came on as the season went along and made the most of his few snaps. Besides Grace they could all use some speed training, but all are fluid athletes – even Young. If the young guys come in and beat them out then more power to them, but I don’t think we are in a position of needing those young guys to do that.

    Nash, I am very optimistic about Redwine – mostly based off his special teams play. Historically when a freshman balls on special teams it translates to having success at his position eventually. He did get some good reps in at CB late in the season, but like some of the LBs – very limited reps.

    January 25, 2016

    I think Bruce is shorter but much quicker. Berrios has been a disappointment for the most part. Maybe the new staff will find a way to use him that doesn’t involve returning punts.

    Also, I never said there weren’t racist people here. Hell, there’s a boat load of racist people here, it’s just that it’s more evenly divided. Instead of 90% of the people hating the other 10%, It’s like this 20% hates that 20% who hate that 20% who hate the other 20% Who hate everyone else. It’s definitely not everybody’s cup of tea but it works for me. When you live your entire life down here, you come to accept that lots of people here are a-holes. Personally, I have my friends and family and don’t concern myself with the attitudes of people I don’t know. But I do love city living and I love warm weather, beaches and boating. The list of cities in the US where I can enjoy all these things is pretty small. Esteban is dead on.

    That’s funny. Crazy isn’t it? A commit will commit. It’s hard for me to get excited about attention seeking 17-year-olds. Do what you do, and then tell me what’s up on national signing day. I don’t spend too much time thinking about it, mainly because I remember I had a skull full of mushy oatmeal for a brain when I was 17.

    I’m pretty sure Bruce is shorter. But colleges want him for his quickness and playmaking ability, not as a guy to throw to on a fade or someone that will climb the ladder on a deep crossing route

    January 25, 2016

    yeah Berrios made a nice play finally in the bowl game so hopefully that gets built on. He just hasn’t made guys miss as a slot or as a punt returner. Can’t be small and have no shiftiness. He loves talking though and reporters love him for that. Some fans seem to love him for that, too, despite him having made 1 play in two years. I’m holding out hope for him, but have no problem with him doing a lot more watching if he doesn’t improve.

    Berrios has been severely underutilized so far.

    Kid has beyond elite quickness and good hands.

    They used him in the bowl game in ways that I have never seen from Coley and it worked.

    If Kayaa is going to be in shotgun every play, they should have a speed sweep in motion almost every time to add a little wrinkle and keep defenses honest.

    We NEVER ran one the entire yr or faked one until the bowl game.

    Hopefully Richt can get a little more creative and put these kids in better situations, especially on 3rd down.

    We will see.

    Bruce will be used the same way.

    I saw FSU settled with the girl Jameis raped for $950K. Seems like a lot of hush money to pay out when the accuser has “no evidence”. Good thing I don’t pay taxes or I’d be pissed that my tax money was going to pay off raped FSU coeds.

    I just finished drafting my first exam featuring an essay hypo on “Shameis Winston” and “Chris Flasher” of the Felon State University Criminoles. My students play the prosecutor.

    Another essay features the “Dullards”, the stars of the hit show “27 and Stopping” and charges against them related to failure to vaccinate their children. My students play the defense.
