LOF = the Corn

WWiN, I'm not sure if Lewis will be ready. Anyone know his status? Our whole WR core is so fast. 2013 we are making a comeback. Our talent coming in is long and athletic. A few project guys but that's a good thing. Let them develop a little. The new OC just needs to catch up to Morris and Co. D'No needs to learn to coach in anyway possible. We can win 10 games next year. With Fisch here I think we would for sure.

Anthonyjmanis

OGV-you are correct...I am youngin(33). However I am an old cane from 89 trust me. When I tell people of canes like Rust Maderias not 89 but just an example and what he did to Penn State back in the day I was probably ten when we won that game 26-20 and then the people know I know my canes. I was there in my teen years watching the probation teams too.Player to the likes of(Yatil Green 1st rd dolphin pick lol,Jammi Germaine,Ryan Collins and Clements,Termian Mack Ryan McNiel etc.)After the tuff probation years were over it got better with players like Edge,James Jackson,Reggie Wayne the aforementioned Brent Romberg,Dan Morgan,Santa Moss again etc etc.....We know what happened and who came next. I'M TELLING YOU HAVE FAITH BRA history always has and repeats itself. When the ncaa cloud moves to another school we will blossom. All we need is Al G and 3/4 of a competent assistant staff that will cover for Dno.
PS I'm not talking NC but I think If CGNC is right 9-3 that my friend should be the bear minimum. One more thing I may be young but I truly bleed OnG I cried when we lost to WVU mid 90s. I was with my parents at car dealership the game was on in the lounge. WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE!!!!

Anthonyjmanis

86 can verify I got the canespace shirts and coffee mugs to him no charge. Little late sorry but nonetheless my lol girl bleeds it too here LOF last year was Jacory but she's a Steven Morris guy and AG is her Prince. Dude have heart. You were at the ball game you felt it it's momentum and its rolling over an ACC team near you. Who would be a good realistic DC we can get? This place GOT elder right?

Sorry I was off topic for that catch Darel Carey made in the regional against uf I knew he would ball out and this is his year. Just like the bball not being ranked. US against the world baby. We've suffered enough. THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

Oh oh. The kiss of death. Cristobal's gone for sure, now. LOL

Please explain why you would be shocked. Shocked if he was offered or shocked if he accepted?

In all truthfulness, I wouldn't be so sure. Saban is a savvy operator, I'm pretty sure if he thought this was just a courtesy interview, he wouldn't waste his time.

The real question is if Cristobal was offered the job, would he take it? Why would you interview with the most powerful man in college football, to piss him off and say no if he offered? While at the same time pissing off your current employer? No, I think Cristobal is serious about this and may very well accept if offered.

Think about it. If he's offered and doesn't accept, he's pissed off Saban, and broken the trust with, and pissed off Golden. Two head coaches who you've now pissed off. That's not a good career move.

I think it all really depends on who Alabama chooses. There are at least 2 other guys in the process and if one of those is their first choice, and accepts, we're getting Cristobal back by default.

TonyCane

The Dude, based on talent alone we should win 10 games. The only teams on our schedule with a higher collection of 4 and 5* players are Florida and FSU.

I sent this email last summer but if anyone is interested custom elite Miami Hurricane Nike Basketball socks let me know. They are green socks with an orange stripe on the back and an orange swoosh. I have sold a bunch on eBay.

U cannot find these socks in stores. They are great to play hoops and football in. Super Comfortable. Also a great way to support your 'Canes. Socks are $18 + $5 shipping. Socks are a Large which fit 8 -12 Men's. I can send pics to anyone is interested.

Thanks for your time and go 'Canes!

Fan_1...shocked IF he accepted.

86Cane

Fan_1...I love people like U:

Me: Do U see the glass as half empty?

U: What glass, I can't even SEE the glass?

Canesfan_1

Ok, thanks.

I'm just not "feeling" it. Why on earth would you interview with Saban to say "no". Who is the most stable coach? Program? Most likely to be intact 5 years from now? Be honest.

If we weren't Canes fans, which would we say is the better job? One that could result in future upward mobility more quickly?

I think just throwing his hat in the ring was a major move. Golden can't be happy about this, I just don't see him also pissing off Saban by saying no to him. I also think he's already burned some bridges by doing this anyway.

That's just my analysis, of course, but I'm basing it on just common workplace sense.

Canesfan_1

I just read your second message, 86.

I'm actually trying to be logical and analytical about this. Which is admittedly hard to do, since we don't know what kind of conversations Golden and Cristobal have had, or what they are thinking. If I were to just let my emotions take over, I would have very different remarks. But I don't see this as a half glass type of situation.

It's all just speculation, I was just trying to apply some trains of thought, based on work and career dynamics.

UMike

I said it as soon as Mario was hired he wouldnt be here long. Saban knows how well Mario can recruit South Florida...bye bye Mario

orange 'n green in the vein

I always saw the Cristobal hire as a pressure reducing move seeing as how Mario was probably suspect #1 to take over for a fired Al Golden when his college roomie drools all over the weekly game-plan this year and the team underachieves for the third year in a row again. Mario probably realized this quickly and decided to either make more money helping Al secure his job stability by being in demand at the real standard bearer in the game right now or take more cash to reposition himself on the outside ready to sweep in and claim the head coaching office when the inevitable MAC meltdown occurs in week two.

Or he couldn't take the man in the big hat constantly reminding him how many record numbers of sacks the one year he coached the offensive line after Art got fired gave up to the opposition. One of the three, I'm not sure which one or in what combination.

There's another guy without his sippy cup. Damn, they are everywhere! Just for the record I did not say Mario is NOT leaving. I said I would be SHOCKED if he did.

Could Mario go to Bama for mo $$$? Sure.

Would he go and leave Golden who basically came to his rescue? Probably not.

Will he go? I do not think so (and I hope not).

But since UMike has Mario playing a well known Eagles song ("Already Gone") on his car radio then we might as well go ahead and hire WWIN to take his place. He is a better recruiter anyway. LOL

orange 'n green in the vein

I'd rather have $neaky's kid back doing nothing at TE coach with Coley looking over his shoulder and hire a real WR coach instead, personally, if Mario dips.

Canesteeler

If Mario is still interviewing college jobs send his ass packing. Either you are loyal or not! I have no problem with him looking to go to the league but another college job, HELL NO!

Canesteeler

For

Canesfan_1

So looking at a situation realistically means I need a sippy cup? Because I wouldn't be shocked if he did leave. I hope he doesn't leave, because if nothing else he's good for recruiting, but sorry, I don't drink koolaid. Put some bourbon in that sippy cup instead.

For the record, I support Golden and his coaches strongly (Ono - not so much) but I'm not so blinded by Golden's hair gel that I can't look at a situation in a way which I think is realistic. Maybe he doesn't leave, I hope not, but to be honest, my initial, emotional, reaction to Cristobal was: "get lost, punk, this is disrespectful". Especially after just a month. But I walked back from that emotional reaction.

Certainly, that can be arranged, then I will join U! LOL

Usually people fall into one of two camps: The Optimists or The Pessimists, with The Realists allegedly somewhere in between. U call yourself a "Realist" but IMHO nothing could be further from the truth. That is not a critique of you or saying that you are wrong, or that it is good or bad, it just is what it is.

There are a MILLION good and valid reasons why Mario would go on this interview AND why Golden would want him to. I do not have time to go into them right now but trust me I will in a future blog feature. Now, I am off to but some more hair gel...I am running low again.

You sound like a man that knows what he's talkin about!!!

UMike

86..everyone knows Mario should a be a head coach at a big time program..and I assume that is also what he wants. I think everyone knew the Mario hire was temporary, that he is destined for bigger things. At this moment in time, being on the staff at Alabama gives you a better shot at a head coaching gig than his current position. Not missing my "sippy cup", just being real. If Mario was ALL CANE (as in employment, not family) he would have never interviewed for the job...imo of course

As an OL coach, Cristobal much, much < Stoutland.

How much you want to bet it went down like this:

1. Cristobal's agent calls him and says Alabama is interested in interviewing you for the OL job, and it pays X number of dollars (significantly more than his current UM salary) and you have a good chance of getting it if you interview.

2. Cristobal tells agent "wow, that's a lot of money, and Alabama knows how to win NCs. More money, higher profile, better future opportunities. What's not to like? Tell them I would love to interview"

3. Cristobal calls Golden and says, "listen, Al, I'm on my way to the airport to interview at Alabama, so I'm not coming in today, I hope you don't mind" Golden is taken aback, but says ok,, while muttering under his breath, "you son of a b----, you're making me look bad" and thinking that sob is going to be recruiting against me if he gets the job.


.
That's a much more real world scenario, in my opinion, than Golden being all fine and dandy with it because Mario's on some double secret probation spy mission and courtesy interview with Saban. Lets talk real world here.

Too many guys striking out looking. Still up 3-1 after 7, might have to win it with D. Any football coaches in attendance ? ;-)

BJ's alright.
Matter of fact, IIRC, He was the one that hinted that Arthur Brown wanted to transfer, before anybody on CS knew about it.

roachcane77

In the end... It's all about the Benjamin$, (both immediate, and down the road as he adds to his resume.)

I think he goes. (If asked... )

I agree with Canesteeler though... Mario SHOULDN'T be going to another college team now, (unless he was offered a Head Coaching gig somewhere, IMHO.)

Schweaty Balls

Its ridiculous how some of you get all over these kids after 6 innings of baseball in the first game of the season. Give me a break, I was not aware Rutgers was not division 1 and we are starting a playing a bunch of new, young players. Winning 2 of 3 with a depleted pitching staff would be a great weekend for this team.

One single off Nedeljkovic top of 8th but nothing else ... Canes 3, Rutgers 1.

Lopez leads off with a single, advances to third on sacrifice bunt & fly, but is stranded at 3rd. Canes take a 3-1 lead into top of 9th.

From the "never trust individual stats" department: Diaz and Nedeljkovic do a great job pitching through the first 8 innings, Salcines gives up 3 runs in the 9th and picks up the win. The team is 1-0 though, which is the one stat that DOES matter.

Not getting on the kid, and it's too early to get on one kid, but we need to figure out a way get some more reliability in our closers. How you do that, I don't know. Maybe closing by committee until you get the hot hand.
