Old Skool

Can't argue with that but QB probably has the most intangibles of any position.


as damn, awesome and damn awesome adjectives go, that's a fine write up .

I can damn near smell the Orange Bowl


Coach Gold on with Rose 560 wqam @ 8 am

he'll be very very very good


Soup youth violence is very sad :(. Most of these kids don't need discipline, most of them are crying out for one thing, LOVE!


I Cor. 13 - 1-13

faith n hope ... actually a pretty good movie

London 1938


WGT22...actually I think it reads:

"Faith, hope and love. These three things remain. But the greatest of these is love."


Canechic...I agree 100%.

Bad Bart

That is one of the most beautiful chapters in the Bible. 1 Cor 13. If you want to know about love, go to the source, the guy who invented it!

Course, if we applied the scriptures teaching about love to the way we love the Canes, where would we find ourselves?


he'll be very very very good

Great Interview indeed.......said he should make announcement on the OC today or tomorrow. Just wants to make sure the OC and the OL coach are a good fit.


not suprised, Coach Gold was awesome


Be as dominant as you want in every position on the field but if you dont have a QB that understands the can your team is SOL

Good thing we have no worries with next years QB or the incoming QB for next year

Not to get to far ahead but I will anyway, even the QB for the recruiting class of 2012

Great article Soup


A fine read. 954 will be proud.

Sure, some teams win with a "manager" QB, even against Miami, but a great QB, the guy that touches the ball on every offensive play, helps the other 21 starters immensely.

A good linebacker doesn't help the offensive tackle anywhere near as much as a good QB helps the defensive tackle, for example.

Good QB on offense = less fear about letting the other team score and fewer short fields for the other team = more aggressiveness out of the defense = more turnovers and defensive scores.

Coach Golden interview with "Big Dog" has been archived if anyone wants to listed.


I was watching film on brissett, he has the size and build for a qb. Just that he is more of a spread qb sucks. Next year bet golden tracks a top 5 qb. True thats the essence of winning games. A QB.

Miamis issues at CB can be solved..LBs are a year or two off and TE is thin. The USC guy has battled injuries and he is a senior. Ford drops simple passes and is a Sr...Cleaveland has shown promise...might be my lof come well fall.


Everything in those pictures is under 6 inches of snow with an inch of solid ice over the top. Coldest day of the year here tomorrow, single digits without adding in the wind chill factor.

Remember when I said I wished I lived up there?


"It's a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there."


It's not where you live, it's how you live.


maybe old news

USC TE Blake Ayles to Miami. He will compete with Chase Ford, Asante Cleveland and Billy Sanders. He gets to play right away, no delay.


It's not where you live, it's how you live.

So true, but how I live works better when I have warm, uhh, how would CGNC let me phrase it... Ahhh, I will let the Beatles explain.



PS: Just kidding on the wouldn't want to live there bit.

I got kids, THEY can shovel the driveway.....


I knew what you meant brother.
It is an eye opener to have lived in Florida 50+ years and move to where there are 4 real changes of seasons.

Sometimes I miss the excitement of South Florida, and sometimes I cherish the peacefulness of the mountains and lakes here.
Atlanta is only an hour and a bit away and Ungar that is one CRAZY city.

Come up in the summer and go on the whitewater run with us.
We are going on a less chaotic and more leisurely run this next trip.

Lou of M

silence is golden untill you hear al golden speak. I could hear this guy speak all day.


Sorry, I can't. My vacation days have already been booked by the Boy Scouts and my wife.

Plus, I know Old Skool is gonna try to take out the new guy, the rest of you are ready for him.



Yahoo News just had this unfortunate double entendre in their top stories list.

"Reporter's surprising Super Bowl pick
Ines Sainz makes a bold prediction months after an uncomfortable incident with an NFL team. ยป QB can pull it off"

I bet he can.....


Incase everyone hasn't heard... Senior TE Blake Ayles from USC is transferring to Miami this season, and can play immediately.



From above article:

"Ayles met today with USC coach Lane Kiffin to inform him of his decision. One of the penalties of the NCAA sanctions is that members of the 2011 senior class can transfer from USC without having to sit out a year so Ayles will be eligible to play immediately for the Canes. His position coach will be Brennan Carroll, who recruited him to USC and was also his position coach for the Trojans during his first two years on the team."


Amen Canechic. I tell mine everyday I love them!


Will Carter have to sit out a year?


So for USC, were all the upperclassmen able to leave even after a season is played? So they can stay a year, fill it out, then decide to leave?

I expect Kiffin to call recruiting foul against us for nabbing their TE like this. Unless he don't want to cause issues with the Carroll family.


360...any of the seniors to be in the 2011 can transfer and not sit out..it was part of USC's penalties


your right i am proud

much more eloquent than I would be able to write

Per Manny Navaro:

Manny_Navarro Report: Fisch to be UM's new offensive coordinator http://bit.ly/h63An4

Read more: http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/colleges/um/#ixzz1AvuV6NVn


I know they were granted that last year, but why this year? So I guess the players can transfer even after the penalties and after they played a season under such penalties. Just doesn't make sense to me. Blog on...


"Fisch's offensive rankings at Minnesota: 109th in total offense (last in the Big Ten), 100th in scoring (also last in the Big Ten), 75th in passing and 111th in rushing offense."

So we're hiring this guy why again?!?!?!


Great article Soup

Although I don't think I would put Brock Berlin anywhere near J12, KW, or KF. Brock was pretty clutch in most big games.


Despite the ugly stats ('09) at Minnesota, Jedd Fisch is highly recommended by NFL's Shanahan, Billick, Carroll #UM


That melee that Solar posted can happen anywhere. "Nothing good happens after midnight" right? But nothing good also happens when you have a mixture of young people and booze out after midnight. I've been through Ocala, and Ocala is the only place that somebody has shot me the bird when me and my family were getting on the entrance ramp on a major American freeway. Now is that an indictment of Ocala, no, I just attribute that to being young and misguided...


Wonder why billick isnt getting coaching jobs


Here's a lot more info on the hire than the one-sided story Manny posted:



And here's some more info on Fisch, this time in bullet-point style:



The old ball coach introduced him to coaching... not bad... i tink we got ourselves a bunch of christian coaches...if it is so its only good.


Could any of us be a good coordinator at Minnesota? You have to play with the cards you're dealt and at Minnie those cards aren't to high.
As far as the Qb's are concerned, it might help if we would ever get a qb coach. You might be able to bring a Brissett in and redshirt him and teach him how to play under center. It might take a couple years but it can be done. Pryor has made pretty good strides in that department, for OSU. I still would rather have a kid that has been exposed to the pro-style in High school.
Lastly, I don't care what kind of QB you have, you better have some studs on the O-Line that can block or they'll end up like Jaboney; Gun shy!


Interesting, he left Minnesota despite a 450,000 contract for his second year...maybe he saw how bad the Gophers were after his first year...?



If his specialty is coaching receivers then this might be the same kind of success that Spurrier has with his passing game.



"Fisch's system was criticized as being too difficult for college kids to pick up."



Maybe Whipple's system was to difficult too, that's why we dropped so many passes, we had to much to think about! Plus this is Miami, We have smart kids here or at least we are ranked high in grad. rates and GPA.


Sorry, I can't. My vacation days have already been booked by the Boy Scouts and my wife.

Good for you ungar!

As a former Scoutmaster, SoFl BSA Commissioner, New River District Round Table Commissioner, and Wood Badge instructor my hat is off to you.


So we're hiring this guy why again?!?!?!

Posted by: CanesFanStuckInCali | January 13, 2011 at 11:34 AM

The resume is not that impressive to me. But I trust Golden so we shall see what happens. Then again, Whipple had a great resume and you see how that turned out. Hopefully, this will be a good system for him (and us).


Maybe the coolest thing I have ever seen...our new D Line coach...say what you want about Pete Carroll...he knew how to have fun...

Be sure and watch the video...



CAN SOMEONE HELP ME HERE? Why do we bring a kid in from out of state for an official visit, if we're not making him an offer? I don't get it.
