pair of former FCS assistants, George Barnett and Eric Koehler, both formerly of Illinois State one of the great incubators of coaching talent on the FCS level. He dipped into his past in hiring defensive coordinator Matt Pawlowski, an ex GVSU assistant out of coaching since the last of four years at Western Carolina in 2011. Miami also brought in two assistants familiar to those inside Big Ten country: Corey Brown with the defensive line and Autry Denson with the running backs. I think Denson just scored another touchdown against Michigan.
College Football Countdown
First: Miami's final three opponents Kent State, Buffalo and Ball State scored 122 points, or five more than the RedHawks' offense managed during the course of a 12 game season.
from No. 128 to No. 1.
Low point: Too many options to pick just one, sadly. Losing to UMass was a wake up call. One Miami fan to another: Are we this bad? Replied the friend: No, we're worse.
High point: Not applicable. Miami fans prayed for lightning every Saturday.

The negatives? Let's see: the offensive line, pass protection, run blocking, the backfield, the lack of depth at receiver, the subtle changes toward youth at linebacker and the game of musical chairs at safety. These are not good things; these are things that will lead a team to make nothing out of an enviable MAC schedule. Could this team be worse than last season's group yet win the same number of games if not win five, even? Without a doubt. The schedule will allow Miami to hang along, treading water, but I see zero improvement between the white lines.
Tidbit (Chuck Martin edition): What can I tell you about Chuck Martin? At the most basic level, think of Martin as a Brian Kelly discipline or clone, even with the experience as an assistant to return Miami to its spot in the Mid American Conference. But what separates Martin from the rest of the pack is his experience at the forefront of his own program. Like Kelly before him, Martin led Grand Valley State to almost unfathomable success during a six year span from 2004 9, going 74 7 overall and capturing a pair of Division II national championships in 2005 and 2006. It's this run at GVSU that places Martin apart from the crop of big program assistants who have flopped on the MAC stage.
Third: Only 94 plays from scrimmage gained 10 or more yards. The RedHawks averaged just 3.68 yards per play; 98 Football Bowl Subdivision teams averaged more yards per carry. The only problem is this: The Cradle of Coaches might need another legend to turn this thing around.
Before turning the page, let's recall the four facts that best encompass what Miami (Ohio) presented as a football team with uniforms and everything during a 2013 season that defies logic and explanation:
against the pass, 113th against the run and 107th in scoring.
In a nutshell: Last season in a flash, because there's little reason to add more: Miami lost by 34 points to Kentucky, 36 to Illinois, 42 to Bowling Green and a touchdown to UMass. In terms of pure putridity, the only team in program history that can rival last year's version was the Frank Wilton coached team of 1940, which went 0 7 1 while scoring a grand total of 32 points. Wilton was replaced two years later by Stu Holcomb, who was replaced two years after that by a little known assistant named Sid Gillman. And Miami was off and running.
Tidbit (coaching edition): Martin will split offensive coordinator duties between a Omega Seamaster 2254
Tidbit: Miami has been outscored in each of the last eight seasons. The next closest similar stretch in the program's modern history spans only four years: 1939 42 and 1987 90.
Second: Miami finished 124th nationally in total Omega Leather Watches offense, 121st in passing offense, 116th in rushing offense and tied for last in scoring offense. The RedHawks ranked 115th in total defense, 105th Omega Watch With Day And Date
