    ▪ When longtime recruiting guru Tom Lemming was in South Florida recently to watch Manny Diaz run his first junior day as UM’s head coach, one thought kept coming to mind:

    “He is a young version of Dabo Swinney, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer,” Lemming said of perhaps the three most successful college football coaches of the 21st century.


    Lemming, who has interacted with hundreds of college coaches in four decades evaluating high school talent, sees something special in Diaz.

    “Manny is one of the best recruiters in the country,” Lemming said. “Miami will be a top 10 team next year [with their recruiting class]. Manny is enthusiastic, hard working and aggressive. Some coaches have golf as hobby. Manny will have recruiting as a hobby. He’s very personable, connects with the kids a lot better than most in his profession.”

    I spent a few hours with Willie a couple years ago at USF. When filming my show with Willie, I said that he is one of those "no brainers" when it comes to recruiting. He is one of the finest young coaches in the country. I'd be more surprised had he not done well.

    Cant compare him to Coach Swinney.

    Bc Swinney knows how to get 11 players on the field.

    This worked well for Richt and his “IF YOU PASS ON US THE FIRST TIME, DON’T EVEN TRY TO COME BACK!” schtick.

    They never came back In fairness, Manny got two kids to recommit after decommitting, so I doubt he pulls that.

    Correct. It's at Orlando because of the Stones concert. The concert was cancelled recently, but the plans were already done to do it at orlando so they are going to through with it.

    contractually obligated to do it on ESPN and they don't want to send a camera crew down so here we are.

    What’s the reason for not doing the game somewhere in SFLA?

    Seems like they are wasting a recruiting weekend by putting it in Orlando

    They are doing an open scrimmage in Miami that will be the recruiting weekend. They are using the Spring game in Orlando as a dress rehearsal

    for opening weekend/they are definitely using it as a recruiting weekend for the central florida area.

    meh. price of not having to sit on a metal bleacher for every home game.

    Miami has won one bowl game since 2007, played in one acc title game in one of the weakest divisions in P5, and has done nothing of relevance in almost 20 years. Wake and Ga Tech have both won conference titles since the realignment.

    Not sure that's a hill you want to die on.

    Yea but they still have that fence around South Florida, which in 2019 seems somewhat problematic.
