TFW life comes at you fast

Remember how some of you cast longing eyes at Dan Enos to fill the OC position on Smart’s staff?  Well, after leaving Arkansas for an analyst’s spot in Tuscaloosa, he spent this season as Miami’s OC.  The results haven’t been especially pretty.

Miami entered the game with the nation’s worst third-down conversion percentage, and going 5-for-14 on Thursday didn’t help that much. The Hurricanes finished the year with three straight losses and averaged only 25.7 points per game. It raised more questions about the future of offensive coordinator Dan Enos, whose lone season with the Hurricanes saw the offense perform well below expectations.

The teams set the game record for punts at 18, with both tying the single-club record of nine.

Last night was the first time since 1994 that Miami was shut out in a bowl game and only the third time ever.

As for raising more questions, it seems Manny Diaz had already answered those before kickoff.

I guess that’s what mailing in your playcalling looks like.

    Mark Richt left another team without an OL and a QB. Imagine that.

    I wouldn’t mind it at all if Kirby called Enos in for an interview. Hell, I’d drag Ralph Friedgen out of retirement if it’ll help the offense.

    Miami also lost to FIU and Georgia Tech. Think about that.

    Diaz has some kind of connection to Richt. His father I think was Richts roommate. Whatever it was it seems to have rubbed off on him or was it just coaching with Richt? Diaz is not long for Miami, you can take that to the bank. As someone in the administration said when Richt was hired, “an angel came over and dropped RIcht into out lap” he forgot to say along with Thomas Brown, Diaz, Jon etc, etc, etc.

    In fairness to Miami, their 3rd down conversion rate was only going to go down after the week zero game against Grantham.

    If Enos is open, does Smart hire him as an analyst? He was thought to be Smart’s 1st choice for OC.

    Gees, a program not afraid to pull a plug on an OC who oversaw production which declined significantly….what a nover idea!
