03:27 PM ET 01.24 | The Miami Hurricanes took a direct swipe at their in-state rivals, the Florida State Seminoles, when they hired offensive coordinator and star recruiter James Coley as their offensive coordinator. Coley coached several different positions while with the Seminoles, and also served as offensive coordinator under Jimbo Fisher. However, Coley did not call plays. However, Coley is one of the top recruiters in the nation, and that's where his loss will be felt the most by the Noles.

No, we're not melting down. As it says above, Coley didn't call the plays. He was basically there for recruiting purposes. I think his family is in Miami, anyway, so I don't begrudge him moving down there to be closer to them. I can wish him luck for 11 games of the year. Just not all 12, LOL.

LOL! Hardly, my friend. Gonna take more than a new OC to right the ship in Coral Gables.

Your OC isn't the problem. Now your HC? That's a different story. I've said it a thousand times. Al Golden will not lead Miami back to the top. Hiring him was a MISTAKE.

Does Jimbo call the plays?
