The Wake Up

Good morning OBB. It is time for another Wake Up call. The Miami Hurricanes off-season is just underway and there is many conversations happening at Discord-U. This is one of the most important off-seasons in recent memory and cue the portal noise. It’s that time of year again. Portal season.

the Greentree

Over to the Josh Gattis watch, and again, we believe it is just a matter of time before the former Broyles Award winner is relieved of his duties. The chatter is getting louder and other fanbases are taking notice. This update is brought to you by Tank Brewery. (Corporate sellouts) Because you needed a brew or two after watching that offense.

A national reporter tweeted this morning “I don’t know if he’s going to Iowa but I’m pretty sure he won’t be here.” We will keep him anonymous at this time because he has since nuked his tweet. But twitter never forgets.

The OBB reported (if you can call it that) in a recent edition of “The Wake Up” that Tyler Van Dyke was remaining at Miami. There was debate or not if Jake Garcia was going to remain in tow but that is definitely trending in Miami’s favor. Both talented quarterbacks staying would create much needed stability in 2023. 

“I’m glad both TVD and Jake are staying. They didn’t forget how to play. Seemed to be on information overload this year to me. New OC will make huge difference. IMO”

Will Mallory will join the Orange Bowl Boys today for a hangout session. The NEW All-Time touchdown leader for tight ends at #TE-U will definitely be asked his takes on the offensive struggles and life in the Mario era. Where does he envision the program going under the Cristobal regime? We can’t wait to find out.

“I’m sure it’s gonna be an awesome interview, but we all know he won’t answer the question we all want answered.”

One question we will ask, out of the three offenses that Josh Gattis employed this season, which one was his favorite? Relax boys and girls. If the Orange Bowl Boys have taught you anything over the years, we interview a certain way and we aren’t afraid to ask the tough question.

The portal works both ways. Avantae Williams, Jalen Harrell, Keyshawn Washington, Al Blades Jr., Gilbert Frierson, Allan Haye, Elijah Roberts, Thad Franklin and Key’Shawn Smith round off the list of announced transfers. This is projected only as the first wave of transfers. More are expected in the coming weeks.

“This is a clear sign of Mario’s intention here. A Miami royalty name doesn’t matter.” -Roman Marciante OBBL Managing Editor.”

X's and Ro

For therapeutic purposes I decided to watch some Tulsa tape. Philip Montgomery and the veer and shoot coaching tree is appealing to me what can I say. There was also a riveting discussion about defensive alignments.

I do have a question though. Why is it that there is a 2i a 4i but no 6i? Most coaches call it a 7 tech. As the offensive mindset of the Miami Hurricanes is set to reevaluate itself, we will stay busy watching systems across the country. “For fun.”

Recruiting Central

Today is the day for open contact visits from coaches to recruits. Buckle up. If Mario Cristobal is around you need to hide your recruits. One recruit that was trending favorable was class of ’23 defensive lineman Joshua Horton. However the reigning national champs are making a push for the current UNC commit.

“Worried about Horton and UGA. They came on super strong.” -Leeds OBBL Recruiting Director

“Safe to say he won’t end up at UNC.” -Lance Roffers OBBL X/O Director

Dante Moore is not a quarterback the Miami Hurricanes are actively pursuing per Discord-U. I will personally say when I watched both five stars Nico Iamaleava and Dante Moore live this year it made be question the ranking system in general. If Moore was a five star Iamaleava was a six. With both Garcia and Van Dyke staying in the Gables, the quarterback room should be just fine.

Join the discussion today and be part of Discord-U. The OBB Legend is its exclusive home and we will put a welcome mat out for you. (Quotes were provided from Discord-U) #staydangerous

    Seems many are thinking the portal will have quality available. I believe the portal (since Manny seems to have been the first to exploit it so well well) has been too relied upon and its value in quality is it seems everyone from all levels is snatching out the top talent.
