I know I have been quite vocal in my defense of the current coaching staff.Even though I have faith in "The Gold Don" I will be all for pulling the plug on Coach Dno if his defense does not show vast iprovement this year.

The Herb might bitch & moan, but he luvs Da U. Bama Was my team from the late 6o's until 82 and then it's been nothing but O&G ever since. I want us back where Bama's at. 11 years is a long time to be eating sum humble pie. The NCAA hates us to begin with and I knew they were going to slow bleed us. 3 straight classes have bee altered because of those bumbling morons. We ought to be the ones filing suit, for right of due process. Since they screwed up, if I was Donna, I'd tell them we've served 3 years of this BS, and we ain't giving you another thing, take it or leave it!

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- So far in Al Golden's tenure, Miami's football program has voluntarily forfeited the right to appear in two bowl games, along with one trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, up to 30 practices and an undisclosed number of scholarships in response to an unbelievably long NCAA investigation.

The Hurricanes' coach sounds like he's had enough.

Bad Journalism. There is no ties, drugs are all over sports but one of our coaches get 400 bucks worth of some stuff to enhance himself is not going to make him a supplier to the MLB, the article says over 100 of our players have played in the MLB but of course only a couple have tested for drugs, one was exonerated. A-Rod never played for us.

The Coach Bitch slapped Sileo on the radio

anyone hear the interview today on WQAM with Sileo and Miami Edison's Coach? The coach basically told Sileo he is full of it and the U is all over the inner city. The reason they are not getting the kids is because of Sanctions and the other schools are still screaming the U is getting the death penalty

TheWordFromTheHerb

Must be a pretty boring day if we are having a Randy Shannon flashback day. Dude was not head coach material. Black, white, red or yellow, it doesn't matter the skin color. As a coordinator he was goood. Dude hated to blitz and we yell at DENO to blitz constantly but there is and was a hugh difference in the front 7 Shannon had to work with, compared to DENO's group. When were winning we didn't constantly have top ranking classes, we just had more speed and better athletes, that is until the others started following suit and now they have one-upped us by having the speed, size and athletic talent. We had problems in the mid 2000's finding Qb's & Wr's and now we have an over abundance of both and now it's the Lb's & DT's that suffer and really the whole defensive side where the numbers are off plus quality to boot.
To bad we don't have Momma Collins recruiting for us, she's a bear for nerves.
Somebody was talking about Jabboney Harris & Robert Marve, in the Herb's most humble opinion, they both were the Anti-Cane, INT. Throwing Machines!

Good Analysis Vfb Cane, I concur your sentiments.

Chud will not get Mario to move to Ohio to be a position coach. Good Luck to T Rich, I have met him many occasions, he is a good RB coach but was not the most personable person to meet. I am close to a few players recruited by the U that told me in no uncertain terms that Coach D is "an A**hole, A liar, and a bad coach, and that is why none of my friends wants to come play for him"

This young man in particular is a 4 star recruit played at one of the most prominent schools in SFLA and personally knows many of the top players in sfla. He also knows several current Canes well. Take this for what it is worth, but this young man is a great kid and if HE can say this I can only imagine what other kids feel. Our Achilles heel on and off the field appear to be one and the same, our D Coordinator.

Canerock. I don't know if you are saying the story is a lie, you may not be but it's the truth. You don't know me and I am not inclined to provide all of the connections in such a public forum to verify the events but sometimes it's how life works out.

It's no different than a personal recommendation from someone of influence who is trusted already inside a potential place of employment vouching for you vs some resume you send to a careerbuilder etc. But that is the real deal of what happened with Sumlin. He may not even know it because it would have been above his head but it's what happened.

VfB_Cane

In other news, NSD has come and gone ...

Some Cane fans came away with the impression that FSU and UF gor far more talent than we did. Really?

I did a little number crunching, based on three recruiting sites, and tried to eliminate the size factor for better comparison.

Rivals
Overall ranking: UF #4, FSU #9, UM #44
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 3.67 (#7),FSU 3.57 (#10), UM Avg. 3.40 (#12)

Scout:
Overall ranking: UF #8, FSU #16, UM #28
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 3.63 (#8), FSU 3.41 (#13), UM 3.29 (#18)

247:
Overall ranking: UF #4, FSU #8, UM #17
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 91.21 (#4), FSU 89.19 (#9), UM 88.80 (#12)

My take:
(1) Eliminating the size factor, UF's signing class was top 5-10, FSU top 10-15, UM top 15-20.
(2) Given that grading recruits is an inexact sciece at best, the difference between UM's class and what FSU got is negligible (basically, it's one 5* signing with us instead of going to Tallyville)
(3) UF is the last of the Florida schools to win a NC and is in the SEC. In today's recruiting world, this will work wonders for you (not necssarily on the field - we'll find out).
(4) No need to hit the panic button. While Golden&Co. didn't set the world on fire yesterday, the talent gap between FSU und us is small enough so that in can be made up by proper talent development. Neither FSU nor UM have excelled in that area for quite some time now.

VA Cane

Please we all have tendencies to see it our way our races way....we do not mean to but we forget how we feel about each other and fall back on old habits and feelings that may be learned behavior but are certainly outdated. I am guilty; I said things that were racial on here that were wrong, embarrased me and showed that I can be stupid and intolerant due to selfish feelings. We got to pull together folks, its going to work out. I care about each of you regardless of race. I do not want to know your race, I do know you are Canes therefore my family!!!

...And a good story. I like FACTS!

UMike

The mother of South Plantation High running back Alex Collins has hired an attorney with the Cochran firm to represent the family "while she contemplates on signing the NCAA's Letter of Intent" that will decide where her son plays football in college.

The firm, founded by O.J. Simpson lawyer Johnnie L. Cochran, made the announcement Thursday.

Andrea McDonald refused Wednesday to go along with her son's choice of the University of Arkansas, preferring that he attend the University of Miami.

thirstybuzzardcane

Look, all I am saying here is that Shannon played and recruited a certain type of player. Someone labeled it as favoring MNW or BTW kids, I call it something else. If you favor someone for anything over someone who may be more qualified, in a job or in this case playing football, that is not right in any way, shape or form. You can bury your head in the sand and say he was trying to get poor Miami kids to be successful and this and that, but I don't care about that when it comes to Miami football and any person would say the same thing. What I care about is bringing in the best players possible to win, period, and I do not believe Shannon did that. He felt he had an obligation to the Community of Miami and not necessarily to University of Miami. When you have a guy who may recruit a local Miami kid who may not have had the best life over a better player from Ohio, California or somewhere else I get pissed b/c that not only hurts the team, it hurts the program. And truh be told, that kind of thinking got Shannon fired, among a whole host of others.

I am not a racist, far from it, but I believe Shannon had other agendas other than winning football games at the University of Miami.

HVC

Randy is not racist. Just doesn't always express himself well. Let's stop that label and leave it for people who deserve it. There also were a lot people who criticized Randy for being an Uncle Tom behind closed doors in the community which he also isn't.

To your point VA. I have a story about Sumlin. Think of the university that gave him his first head coaching job. He got his chance because of a kid who had an opportunity to watch Sumlin up close. Not as an athlete but picture a gatekeeper,student worker frequently around the team. The school that hired him was going with someone else. The AD had already made the decision, but the student at the time, knew a person of "influence" at the school who asked him for the truth on Sumlin in light of hiring considerations, and raved about how good Sumlin was. Picture youthful exuberance towards a cause, raved in the strongest terms possible. AD is told to interview Sumlin again, AD says we got a guy. Person of influence says not yet you don't. Sumlin gets hired. You never know who people at the bottom of the totem pole know. Connections still play a huge part in life. He may have gotten a chance somewhere else over time but it wouldn't have been his first HC gig. A lot of schools passed on him that year for "whatever" reason. Only one school was willing to take a chance on him.

True story.

I back my General Golden like I backed Randy when he was coaching like garbage. The diffrence is Golden coaches a lot better than Randy will ever. I trust Goldens recruiting process. Randy hosted camps for near $400 while Goldens are $60. Who do you think gets more local kids to attend?

More Jake Gaither:

In Jake Gaither's (career record = 204-36-4) career - he AVERAGED 55 points per game, and his opponents averaged 3. He used to pass out copies of his offense to EVERYONE! (EVEN HIS OPPONENTS!) because he said: "no offense is sound if it doesn't work vs. teams that KNOW!!! the details about it"!

Last I checked you get hired on qualifications, but I guess in that other world you live in apparently thats not the case.

Posted by: Schweaty Balls | February 07, 2013 at 12:23 PM

"Qualifications"? Really? You ever heard of Jake Gaither,IMO, the greatest HC, and maybe the greatest offensive mind to come out of the South:

Jake Gaither had a simple coaching philosophy, one which has become the most-quoted recruiting theory in football. He wanted his players "mo-bile, a-gile and hos-tile". He found enough players of that caliber, and taught them well enough, that he will never be forgotten whenever the conversation settles upon the names of football's great coaches. Gaither was an All-Conference end at Knoxville College. He coached at the academy level, Henderson Institute and St. Paul's, 1927-36. He moved to Florida A&M as assistant coach in 1937 and was Florida A&M head coach 1945-69. His 25- year record was 203-36-4, a percentage of .844. His teams won their conference 18 times and were black college national champions six times. His name was Alonzo Gaither; everybody called him Jake. He had a bachelor's degree from Knoxville, 1927, and master's from Ohio State, 1937. In 1963 he wrote a book, "The Split Line T." Gaither was a member of the President's Council on Physical Fitness. In 1975 he was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, received a Distinguished American Award from the Walter Camp Foundation, and received the A.A. Stagg Award from the American Football Coaches Association. The state of Florida produced a film "Coach and Teacher" portraying him as part of its "Great Floridian" series. In Tallahassee, a street, a park, a golf course, and a gymnasium were named for him. In a 10-year streak 1953-62, his teams went 87-7-1. He was a champion debater in college and a dynamic speaker afterward. Gaither was born April 11, 1903, in Dayton, Tennessee. He died February 18, 1994, at age 90.

Because of the ugly racist history of this society. Plus the current lingering racism, that isn't as bad as it once was but isn't non existant as we pretend. Most black people still don't trust white people. Especially rich ones

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, missing on areas of need has turned this blog into a a game of who hates others skin color more? WTF?

So you can't want a coach who won more games on a percentage basis with a different melanin content in his skin than another because then you're a racist? WTF again?

Sumlin was in the mix when Golden was hired. Special K liked that book in orange and green instead of cream and purple from a guy who had never beat a lesser conference foe with a winning league record better though rather than hire a respected head coach who had tore it up in a lesser conference and coached the all time NCAA passing yardage leader. Whether skin tone had anything to do with that you'll have to ask that dumb@$$ personally though.

VA Cane

I could not agree more CR.Yes Randy was a Cane, from Miami, knew coaches black and white and could have really built the fence....hell with his advantage he could have built a steel cage!!!! But he chose not to....he was not a good HC....for different reasons I mentioned. Ultimately, he did not have HC skills to go along with his insider presence and inroads!!!!

I think it would have been ideal to leave Shannon as the DC, he had good defenses. Sumlin was at Oklahoma when RS was hired; he was readily available....dont think we even knocked. He was the OC there his last 2 years....averaged 44 PPG in 07. So he was available, but as usual, with Clappy and Randy they made bad hires. Sumlin is a great cat; I met him at a clinic one year, a friend from my hometown coaches hoops and has a friend who is at A&M....Mike says his friend is crazy over KS...as are the students players and school. ...the guy has class charisma....you know he can recruit....and he would rope em in in SoF. How did we miss him? He is a dynamic young educated experienced outgoing guy....and just happens to be black!!!! I mean if you wanted a black coach, which is great by me....he was the guy to get. Did not do bad in first year at A&M either Huh?

Like Phil Collins said "Oh Oh I missed again, Oh Oh Oh Oh, I believe I missed again"!!! He would have been a good get folks....and I am not knocking AG or anyone else, I just think KS was a real winner!!!!

Ohio_Cane

Guessing big news is something about Schwartz Center or something along those lines.

CoCone

You must be racist. Colin McCarthy did fine under him. Shannon wasn't a good coach. He was biased towards Northwestern & Booker T, that happens to be majority black schools. Why didn't he hire an all black staff? That would be the racist thing to do. Before you make your Shannon's a racist list. Make a list of the major colleges that have racist pedigrees. Then make a list of all of the racist AD's that continue to vastly under hire black head coaches in major college football. Why aren't the HBCU's more represented in major football? Probably because the elite black players would go to their alma maters, win championships, give the schools big $, put their resources on the same level as the blue bloods & give education in the ghetto a revolutionary level playing field. Don't get me started boy...

Schweaty Balls

Yeah, you're going to leave it at that because you can't itemize why Shannon is a "racist", you have no proof. Heck, from listening to the local HS coaches talk about Shannon alienating them, and their players, some of it sounded like they were calling RS an "Uncle Tom". I can got there if I want to, but I CAN'T, because I have NO PROOF! that they actually, and literally called Him an "Uncle Tom". Basically what I'm saying is, be VERY! careful when you hurl the racist label at somebody, that's a VERY! HEAVY and POTENT term.

The way America is today, people couldn't take it for calling a spade a spade. For the sake of going down a bad road, I think I am going to leave it at that.

Lol! At the people that said Shannon favored Harris over Marve because Harris was black. Ignorant mutha fukkaz! Marve is black. Very light skinned because he's mixed but his facial features, thick lips & wide nose is obvious. Shannon favored Harris because he was from Northwestern. Tighten up yall. When you label a black person racist, make sure your shyt is together or don't go there. PERIOD

You want me to make a list, I can put one together a mile long. Shannone was racist! PERIOD!

Robert Marve anyone? That guy was better than Jacrappy Harris but Harris had one thing going for him over Marve and in Shannon's eyes that trumped everything else.

SB, I disagree, Marve was bi-racial. And Marve didn't amount to much of a QB at Purdue.

True..BUT IMO..Harris shouldnt have started as a freshman and their shouldnt of been a 2 qb system.

LOOK!, as a black man, I'm glad the we we were the first major CFB team in Florida to hire a black coach. BUT!, in the end, I think we hired the WRONG! black coach. Wasn't Kevin Sumlin available at the time we hired Shannon.

Sumlin is a HELLUVA! HC, I'm surprised the NFL hasn't knocked at His door yet.
