The only question is Manny.

If he shows mental toughness and strong leadership body language when the inevitable adversity hits, we will be fine.

It’s easy to appear savage and ride yachts and catch phrases in the offseason. The look in your eyes when adversity rears it’s head what shows who you really are.

When Manny got punched in the mouth, he lost his composure. That picture of the Butch handshake was our season in a nut shell. The team played soft because that’s what Manny brought when the going got tough. Problem is, the going always gets tough. Strong coaches overcome.

I like Manny. I think he has potential to be really good, but he has to develop more confidence, poise, and ferocity. If he does, he will win a lot of games. If he doesn’t, the nightmare will continue.

I don’t care if he has to meditate, practice PsychoCybernetics, get a Navy Seal consultant or whatever else. Manny has to sack up. No more looking like a lost little kid on the sideline when things are not going well.

That is the only thing between him and a stellar career at Miami. The problem is it is the most important and hardest to develop aspect of being a championship coach.
Some people go through that and hate it so much that they'll move heaven and earth to ensure it doesn't happen again.

I sincerely hope that humiliation that he suffered last year was enough to make a better coach.

That’s why I haven’t given up on Diaz.

Becoming the man in a trial by fire isn’t something most people can do.

But you don’t know who who is capable of it until they do it. There were some troubling signs last year but one season isn’t enough to declare Diaz dead. He is in critical condition and has to fight for his life though.

He received the Christmas gift he needed to grow into. Let's see his rate of growth.

Both him and flake are on twin respirators.

Whatever happens this year, let’s say we win 11 games and Manny gets another year, it’s past time to fire Blake. He needs to be fired anyway. Our athletics program performance and his poor leadership over the past several years is cause enough.

We need to inject new leadership and energy into the athletic department. It’s not a tenured position, and his lack of overall performance is unacceptable.
