Chicken Or The Egg

Chicken Or The Egg

Rellyrell
Which came first; the chicken or the egg? No seriously; which came first, The Culture of Miami Football or The New Staff?

Check my post history; I’m not & never have been a coach defender. This post, thread is not to justify, excuse, bargain, or even reason upon the monstrosity of yesterday’s game. It started funky with the tailgate being completely demolished by heavy rains, to MTSU completely & throughly smashing us. Again, while the off season was filled w/ the usual chest thumping, 15-0 / 10+ win or bust posters, along w/ the usual Green Tree Practice Reports adding Kool-Aid, there were a handful of posters, like myself, who cautioned season 1.

BCU game had everyone feeling good, & again, I posted historical data of us crushing FCS opponents in previous yrs & the end results. So often fans get caught up in the hype, they don’t have an honest evaluation of their team. I gotta frat bro right now in line to lose $50 to me b/c he think our Chi Bears is winning 8 games this yr b/c we got a new coach. Lol. That’s fans, bro; hard headed af, w/ the inability to see reality b/c they think w/ their emotions & not mind.

Question for all those who said bench Ivey: have u seen what’s behind him? Did u see a young Jaden Harris slide farther on the field than Manny ever did, as he was burnt? Have u seen Green Tree All-American, Graves, get BBQ chicken? So who’s replacing Ivey? Speaking of, how about that effort by Ivey on that 90+ TD? Did u see him run full sprint or jog?

Question for all those who said J Will is the next: did u see his piss poor efforts in tackling yesterday?

Question for all those who praised the portal moves, including crowning Messidor: where have they been?

Question for all those who thought the camp reports of half-assed efforts from the WRs in practice: are u now convinced of the ?able hands these guys have? Are u concerned that our go to guys are Redding & Ladson?

There’s never an excuse to lose to a MTSU team, not when you are a P5 squad. I don’t care who’ve they’ve upset in the past, the fact is this team is a middling G5 team, but fans look at roster vs. something u can’t account for, culture. To illustrate, one of my boys in FL, young guy at 35 and into health & fitness like myself. Externally, he looks great, but no one knows internally he deals w/ depression & mood swings, & those things derails him a lot. Fortunately, he has a loving wife who helps him navigate through those times.

Externally, based upon 247 rankings, this roster should be competing for ACC titles & beating the snot out of all these teams we’ve faced. So why haven’t we? In the last 4 yrs, we’ve lost to more unranked G5 teams than we have in the last 40 yrs. alone. Chicken or Egg, folks?

I’ve clearly warned the make up of this roster, the mentality that’s crept in, and somehow you’ve convinced urself that was going to change b/c of a coach? The overwhelming data shows when a coach takes over a dumpster fire, it takes 2-3 yrs to clear out the filth. I remember Bama losing to ULM at home in 2007 & the vitriol that was spewed by friends who r Bama fans who wanted him gone. I remember SC fans hating the Carroll hire & hated him even more going 6-6 yr 1, including a baffling, pathetic performance against Utah in their bowl game (MWC Utah, not Pac-12 Utah)

The fans who r chirping the most r the ones who didn’t want Mario here in the 1st place. This is ur “See, I told u he was a bum” moment. Lol. It takes time to change culture, at least 2 yrs, but generally by year 3. Unless u’re Lincoln Riley & can bring ur squad w/ you to replace current players & a Belitnikoff WR, it’s incredibly difficult to have a 1 yr turn around. I’ve seen Saban, Carroll, Dabo, Aranda, Stoops (both of them) all look like Corches yr 1.

Things take time; if by year 3 we look like this, then we know it wasn’t the chicken; it was the egg

I usually don’t read stuff this long on here but you’re my guy…pause..


I be trying to be calm, cool, and collected but after the MTSU loss, I’ve thrown my hands up with the rest of the year. I thought 9-3 but I know think that’s a big time stretch.

Good level headed post tho fam!!
It’s legit my last thread creation. Felt compelled b/c I get it. Again, I’m not excusing this lost, but add this lost to the litany of inexcusable losses we’ve had in the past 4 yrs, alone. Our culture is f’d up; that’s what u can’t account for on paper.

In the past, I havent always agreed with you. But over time, I have come to respect your perspective on the program. Carroll was not a popular hire at the time. People felt he was a backup choice. And after his first year less so. But he had a plan. Not sure how its going to work out with Mario, but he has a plan and I think it will take some time to see if it works. I want him to succeed.
 
Oh, @Rellyrell, I really hoped it wouldn't be you, but you did it, you said the Saban, Louisiana-Monroe thing.



Aye, truth is truth. I got the phone call immediately after that game, wanting him fired, & That Bama made a mistake hiring a has been coach who got smoked while w/ The Dolphins. Fans don’t see tomorrow, they only see today & I get it. Hence, y I never get “too” upset yr 1. The only reason y I was hard on Diaz yr 1 was b/c he had zero business being here, especially being apart of the problem along w/ no coaching experience. Also the way he took subtle shots at Richt really pissed me off. Even then, my anger turned towards Blake James for the dumb hire.
 
Rellyrell is 100% correct here. If anyone thought we were going to have a 10-2 type season is a rube. The “reports” out of Greentree are for entertainment only. Reality is that we have a team full of JAGS.

I think we’ve gotten second fiddle type kids for too long here. Either talented head cases or hardworking bums. I can count on one hand the kids we’ve had over the last 15 years that were BOTH hardworking and blue chip. Those kids have been leaving South Florida.

This staff is too experienced and knowledgeable too fail like this. It takes a while to turn a ship around. We have to trust Reed, J Taylor, Strong, Coach O, Cristobal, etc…

I think Parrish and Jackson were solid portal additions but I said in the summer we missed. Still no pash rushers all our LBs still mid no corner and WR no comment. No matter if you agree with me or not about WR value it's a top 3 position with DE and QB we have none of them.

After a loss, you usually have to wait until about Wednesday for the riff-raff mopes to stop touching themselves long enough for a good post to get made. Thank you for not making me wait until Wednesday.

I'm going with the Chicken. No way anyone should be on a hot seat in year one, idgaf even if its MTSU or worse. We're 20 years deep into mediocrity and we still have grown ass men buying into the hype before anything of substance was given. You should all be emotionally calloused to this sort of thing by now, but you all keep returning to the hype fount year after year.
