    People talk about the delay of game penalty, the botched kick off return, and the pick 6 at the end, but there are additional examples of miscues and miscalls throughout the game. In particular, leaving the field at halftime with decent field position, time on the clock, and timeouts in your pocket. This is probably the best example that I know of that demonstrates Martin's lack of urgency, his emotional detachment from the game, and his unwillingness to take advantage of an opponent who is on his heels. I see this in every game. Instead of playing to win, Martin plays not to lose.

    And the announcers were kind of like WTF, why not take a shot there.

  • i am still irritated about that. But that is part of Chuck's "play not to lose" philosophy.

    All our section in the stands said the same. We all were astounded. The beat goes on and on.

    Got a chance to watch the game this morning (big mistake, ruined my sunday morning, after watching the last drive ruined my night), I think he should be fired for what happened last night 100%, there is only one thing that can save him and that is winning the MAC (something I have zero confidence in him to do) at whatever point Miami becomes mathematically eliminated from MAC Championship contention you fire his ass
  • I nominate Jordan Martin.

    How about Ricky Martin?
    Dean Martin? Dead but boxed and ready to be exhumed.
    Billy Martin? Also could be dug up.
    Martini and Rossi? I'll drink to that.
    Martin Scorsese? Apparently alive...but may not want the job.
    Martin Short? He could audition.
    Martin Sheen? Still breathing...Dayton OH native.

    We have options.

    I feel terrible for our players. Our coaching staff has simply failed to manage in games to a degree I have never seen. I live near Cleveland, so I see some brutal Browns teams and coaches, but this unreal.

    Not sure what to do now, I guess let time pass and hope it gets fixed one way or another?

    One more home game, like the past 2 games, and there's gonna be a new "Factory of Sadness"

    We're 5-16 in games decided by one possession. We're 9-7 in games where we led at halftime. We're 0-9 in rivalry games. We're 1-19 against teams with winning records. We're 2-2 against FCS teams.

    1-19 against teams with winning records. Holy crap.
  • skinsskins Wealthy Alum
    He truly can not beat anyone that is considered legit.
  • AORedHawk33AORedHawk33 Wealthy Alum
    And can't beat those who aren't considered legit either!

    True....I was being nice....I said we looked like Kent against Notre Dame on D...that's an insult to Kent....our defense is a joke...Bahl looks incredibly unprepared.
  • Cincykid3Cincykid3 Wealthy Alum
    If u can't beat hapless Kent State then u do not deserve to be Miami's HC.
