Twitter Talk: Losses, Coaching, Bowls, and more reactions from Canes fans

Photo by John McCreary/Icon Sportswire via Miami fans search for answers looking where to place the blame for our underwhelming 2019 season. We’re a far cry away from 10-2 season predictions and diagramming ways the Canes could make it to the ACC Championship game. Fans watched as the narrative shifted from “We were one Jeff Thomas fumble away from beating the Florida Gators” to negotiating our chances against the Tulane Green Wave in the Walk-Ons Independence Bowl. Even with a promising 2020 recruiting class and the emergence of young talent like Will Mallory and Gregory...

The “Eye Test”: UCLA Football Shows No Notable Progress in Loss to UC Berkeley

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports Unlike last year, the Bruins ended the year without giving the fans any sort of hope. It’s over. This season is, mercifully, over. There will be more postmortems over the next few weeks, but that was my immediate thought as I walked out of the Rose Bowl on Saturday. This season has been trying for UCLA fans, and we’re now entering what is shaping up to be a critical offseason for Chip Kelly’s tenure. I’ll have a season-long Eye Test in the next few weeks, so I’ll save any discussions of what the future holds for these units till then , but for...

In particular, with former offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s reassignment, that fact has taken shape as head coach Tom Herman potentially sets his sights on the LSU Tigers’ passing game coordinator Joe Brady, a finalist for the Broyles Award, which honors the nation’s top assistant coach, to step into Beck’s role in...

Miami Has Searched for a Way Back for Twenty Years, but the Path Forward Still Isn’t Clear

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports The Hurricanes football program remains caught in a seemingly unbreakable cycle. When will Miami be back? That question has surrounded the University of Miami’s football program since December 30, 2005, the night the Hurricanes took a 40-3 loss to LSU in the Peach Bowl. In the ensuing years, Miami’s pursuit of being “back” has turned from a bright goal to look towards to a dark cloud that surrounds the program. The pressure of fulfilling that hope has consumed Larry Coker, Randy Shannon, Al Golden, and Mark Richt, and now the maelstrom has...

The 24-10 victory gives Oregon their first 10-win regular season since 2014 and denies Oregon State a much needed bowl appearance.
