NSFW: It’s Meltdown Time! Week 1: Tigahs and Tigers and ‘Canes. Oh my!

New, 120 comments

The first 2021 installment of our shameless revelry in the misery of others.

Week one of the college football season is officially in the books, and thus the first 2021 installment of “It’s Meltdown Time!” is upon us.

First up are the LSU fans who are just about done with Ed Orgeron, a mere 11 games after their 2019 national championship. Clemson fans are pining after Trevor Lawrence after watching their offense get destroyed by Georgia, and then we have the Miami fans. The ‘Canes are stuck in something of an identity crisis, some delusional enough to believe that a return to the glory days is just around the corner. They all seem to be done with athletic director Blake James, head coach Manny Diaz, and the turnover chain.

As usual, the language below is horrific, offensive, and in some cases unconscionable. If you are sensitive to such matters, please point your browser elsewhere. You have been warned.

The rest of you, enjoy.

I think our best shot is hoping someone from Qatar or UAE shows up and sponsors LSU, similar to European soccer. I mean, with a no-cap NIL, that’s essentially what college sports is now. Simply go buy the best players and coaches. Like European soccer, teams can go from zero to hero overnight cause you simply buy everybody. Keeping my fingers crossed.

After last night, my excitement is absolutely gone. I cannot get those images of our lines being man handled and our secondary being embarrassed out of my head. I am no longer looking forward to Saturdays because I know it means LSU will disappoint once again. Is this what it’s like being a fan lower tier program like Arkansas, ole Miss & state?

I look at the schedule and I look at how our future opponents looked yesterday and can’t help but see us losing to most of them. Not to be dark and gloom but buckle up guys it’s going to be a LONG season.

Fire Coach O. I have seen enough. And there is nothing you sunshine pumpers can say. LSU stinks

After this week I am done watching. Dumped my tix when the woke Corvid policies were announced. Was hoping against hope that Eddie would right things, but his inept approach and the idiocy that are the LSU “decision-makers” has extinguished any thought of following further. They pull their woke heads out ‘o their arse and I will reconsider, but THAT will never happen.

As long as I can watch Nick’s team. I know what a great team looks like.

Ed: “Aranda was actually running this program”

As a recruit what makes you want to go to LSU currently? I really don’t know if I can think of one with this staff

Curley Hallman or O who you going with

CEOs gonna stand in front of the team, rip off his shirt & challenge the players to a fight if any of them think they can take him!!!!

Personally, I wouldn’t purchase a hummer from that salesman.

Orgeron was who we thought he was.

It brings me no joy saying that but if you harvested post hire threads/posts they would have predicted all of this.

No consistency because he’s completely reliant on coordinators. Doesn’t have a real idea of a philosophy he wants.

The only positives were recruiting and cheap.

He’s no longer cheap.

The good news is we gave 7 to a guy that doesn’t want to be here and 18 to a LB with no real talent.

Con job is how I’ve always felt about the hire. Derek and O were just able to manipulate a simple minded AD who felt scorned by Tom Herman. It’s a joke.

The man is a used car salesman and had weeks to sell himself to an incompetent AD, schmooze the money people, and get the mob to buy into his one of us bullshit

Same shitty defense as last year

Dumbasses confused and scared to tackle

If Max just has “it”

Then “it” ain’t accuracy

What stupid fucking D-line formation was that?

They were all outside the damn guards? My old fat ass could’ve run for 10 on that one

JFC this team sucks

Can we please fire the strength staff now? it’s only been a decade of getting curb-stomped

Fuck this team.

Time for bed

Well this place is going to be a shit show for the next week

DJ needs to worry less about clothes and more about football

This is like watching paint dry but worse because at least something happens when paint drys

This is what happens...

when you can run over the majority of your opponents in the ACC without an innovative offense. Eventually, you run into a team you can’t overpower, so good schemes become essential.

Hope DJ invests the money he’s making in college

Cuz there won’t be any NFL money coming his way.

have to wonder how trevor would be doing

why the fuck aren’t we getting hte ball out faster on those blitzes:?

ANd another sack....This OL needs to walk home

Jesus we look like shit.

Did we practice at all this off-season. Sack after sack, receivers running the same routes on top of each other. QB and receivers not on the same page. I put this on Dabo. We don’t look ready to play

Make the whole fucking offense walk home

Coaches included. Look inept at every level

REALLY REALLY REALLY

did not expect DJU to look so wholly inadequate. He is just standing there rooted to one spot, unmoving, locked onto one receiver, unwilling to even step up.

DJ looks braindead.

He’s thinking in slow motion.

Doesn’t look ready to be a starter. I get the Oline is trash but he’s playing like they aren’t, which is making it twice as bad.

Almost every article I read this week claimed an improved OL.

What a fucking joke. Worse than last year’s, which is no easy feat. Junk.

DJ = deer in headlight

post game presser: “this is the last time we’ll see a defense of this caliber.”

bullshit. This is the defense we’ll see in the playoffs.

I think the front row at a ladies bingo night would be a better OL

Fucking sad field goal

The winner of this game still gets blown out vs Bama.

Both these offenses are suck.

FUCK

that’s it

we have become a fan base that laughs at everyone else. Sucks to root for that cause we cant handle business......we suck. But I enjoy the tears but the admin is pulling the fight out of me. Talk me off a ledge and tell me we will be dominant again. LIE TO ME CIS JUST LIE TO ME, SAY 15-0 AGAIN

THIS LOSS HELPED US MORE THAN YOU KNOW. DON’T BE A FAN LATER. IT’S ONLY ONE GAME. THE WORSTEST THING IN THIS WORLD ARE FANS DAT HAVE UNREALISTIC EXEMEPECTATATIONS

WE ARE STILL BEING SUPER INDIRECTLY IMPACTED BY THE CLOUD, AND FOR GOD’S SAKE COVID.

as long as Monkey Diaz is the HC, Canes would have a hard time winning the Greater Miami Athletic Conference high school championship.

Just freaking dumb. You should be flying a banner at NCAA headquarters and telling those corrupt bitches to let everyone play by the same rules. Then maybe we can also spend 400k to buy the Evan Neal’s and Will Anderson’s of the world. Hiring new staff, AD, Pres whatever is literally bandaging up a paper cut while your chest cavity has been blown open.

Manny is a used car salesman, he talks a good game but when it comes down to actually coaching football he’s a fraud. Literally every big game Diaz has been our HC we have showed unprepared and got out coached! NC State, VT, Clemson, FIU, Duke, LA Tech, Alabama, North Carolina twice and Oklahoma State. Any competent HC Manny goes against takes him to school

So buying out his already overpaid contract at temple with an overpaid contract of our own was a mistake you think? Our team plays soft under him and play not to lose. Hope the bus hits him on our way out of Atlanta

Bringing out the TO chain down 27.

TD rings down 32.

This is who Mandy is. ESPN dork intern with his little headset just happy to be on the sidelines. Clueless and inept.

Who are we talking about? Manure Di ass?!

He’s a socialist homosexual and a piece of ****

You have a clueless President, an under-qualified AD who has no business running a major program, and a BOT who does not give a **** about winning. We’re all delusional and sick in the head for tuning in every year and thinking it’s just magically going to click one year

Parity in this sport has disappeared altogether. Its Bama, Clemson and then, its everybody else. And the amount of movement is slim. Theres no hope for other teams to win a title when Alabama is at the top. Its a different sport and it sucks complete ass.

BRO, YOU GUYS ARE ALL A DISGRACE. WE HAVE A TOP NOTCH ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT, A WORLD CLASS AD, AND A FUTURE HALL OF FAME HEAD COACH. TRUST THE PROCESS. ONE GAME DOESN’T DEFINE A SEASON. DON’T BE A REAL FAN LATER. BUTCH GOT BLOWN OUT A LOT TOO. BANNERS ARE DUMB. SUPPORT YOUR SCHOOL

I’m starting to view the chain as the most embarassing thing in Miami football history. It’s neck and neck with the FIU loss

Pillars, chainz, and rangz. We are destined for the promised land boyz.

Manny couldn’t win 11 straight games if his kilogram depended on it

Did anyone see how Saban blew off Manny after the game. He’s looked at Diaz like you’re not deserving to shake my hand and oh yeah, you’re in way over your head. Diaz looked dazed yet again after the game and yes, it was obvious he did feel the slight. I also watched the Saban press conference, which all but acknowledged our players and made no mention of the coaching staff. I thought that was telling of how Saban thinks. He says a lot without saying it.

Stop scheduling like its 2002. Anytime, anywhere means something out of Ed Reed’s mouth. Not Manny Diaz’ or any of the current players.

Time to do the program a favor and ease into the season. The only thing that could happen today at this point is a bad injury.

If this was the game plan against the Number One team

In the country, we’re in for a long season. No imagination, no innovation, nothing BALLSY, nothing unexpected, just the usual run it the middle twice and then throw on 3rd and long.

I know we’re getting our asses kicked and it doesn’t matter

But these officials blow. They probably blow a lot of of other things too, like Saban, these commentators, and ESPN

Take the chain to the effin’ dump

It has outlived its usefulness and is nothing but an embarassment now

Michael Irvin said pregame we are going to shock the world. I am pretty shocked right now.

It looks like we sent our Covid cardboard cutout team to Atlanta

Manny whining at the refs

Instead of coaching his defense. It wasn’t grounding, but his head was so far up his rear that it’s a Bama score 95 years later.

BOY DO WE EVER SUCK

Embarrassing, unacceptable, all of that. Obviously they have better players, bigger, faster, stronger. The team is full of 5 star recruits, etc. All that is true of course, but that’s no excuse for this pitiful performance. And I put that on Manny and Lashlee. This was their game plan?

I was one of the “I’m indifferent to it now but if the kids like it, keep it” but yesterday’s usage of the chain and rings was legit embarrassing.

Talk about spatial awareness. Getting blasted on national TV and you’re still committed to the pageantry? For real? That’s embarrassing and emblematic of Diaz really. A lot of style but absolutely no substance.

Maybe the time Diaz spends in the gym, working on his physique, he can spend on drawing up some plays that work and/or ones that are different to Amari Carter running flat out into their O Line.

Bunch of idiots in Coral Gables

Trey Sander is a RB but he is bigger than all or Safeties and our LBs. God damn man!

Done watching the Canes. NCAA can continue to go to shit with the same programs making the playoffs every year. This performance is disgraceful but even more from the one sided refs that have shown how disgusting their character is to favor the already dominant side. UM has become a pathetic national laughingstock and soon won’t even have enough fans to have a program.

We are literally like a D2 team playing Bama

Alright well I am taking a shit.
