And seriously, name one play that had ANYTHING! to do with *s!

Hell, there was one TD where the UL player ran through,over,by, and around guys that Golden RECRUITED!...guys that were 4*s or better!

What the hell do *s have to do with being where you're SUPPOSED to be, WHEN you're SUPPOSED to be there?!

What the hell do *s have to do with STAYING HOME! on bootlegs?!

What the hell do *s have to do with NEVER! running by an ELIGIBLE! receiver?!

You know, depending on the coach, the average defender has to go through about 14 progressions just to make ONE PLAY!, and guess what, talent is NOT! one of em'!

PHUCK! *s!

While everyone is firing this staff it sure seems like this excellent class is dying to play for them.

Yeah, the 2008 class was "dying to play for them"...WHAT HAPPENED?!

AfriCane

I wish Chud would come back home to the U and take over as head coach, hire Dorsey to be his OC, and hire a DC as well. Nothing against AG but have lost faith in the staff etc. Its wishful thinking on my part but wouldnt mind seeing it. Go Canes!

be careful what you ask for. chud may not have the skills for the college game ala bill walsh. Dorsey may be a good qb teacher but might be under developed @ calling his own game ala whipple.

CGNC

Well. I wonder how Al Golden's staff evalutations are coming along?

The Dude

Talent matters. Stars, for the most part reflect talent. They aren't 100% accurate but give us a pretty good indication of talent. That being said, Miami does not lack talent. Go Canes is crazy if he thinks this years class is so much more talented than years past. That's the play the freshmen mentality. Who is coming in and starting right away from this class? Maybe a DT, which by the way is the second hardest transition in the sport from HS to Div 1 football. Everyone else will be mixed in with what we currently have. We lost so poorly, in so many games, because Al Golden is lost. Nevermind Louisville, that's a good football team with a good HC. VT is the one to look at. They ripped us like we were a HS team with Logan Thomas, who proceeded to look like the sh*t QB he is the next week. "Suddenly explosive VT offense." Yeah, because Al Golden is lost. His defense is without any question the worst in America. He doesn't have the goods. He won't bring in a good DC, he's sticking with failure. Next year is no different folks. We'll still have the worst D in America. Still lose to teams we shouldn't. Nothing changes until Golden either makes serious changes (which I don't think he will) or he's gone. That's really the only arguement left. Does he make changes or do we suck next year also and all the way to 2020.

The Dude

Go Canes, Boise State under Chris Petersen would beat the Canes by 30 in any year with any one of his recruiting classes. Its embarassing how you are trying to make a sad arguement. Its troll worthy.

The Good Old Days Are Gone

When can we leave Sun Life Stadium and where else could we go?

Are we having trouble developing talent?

What happened with Seantrel Henderson?

I just realized why I cant find humor in canes loss like u guys do; I take it hard, so hard that I cannot see any humor in it. and I know some of u use it as a coping mechanism, but the bitterness that comes upon me when we lose is that of the 'dark side.' I have a very strong coping mechanism developed over a few years, but it involves total avoidance and I've prepared my self not to expect anything from our team until something does happen, especially in a up & down season such as this. for me, when I witness others make a joke of the predicament, it only 'drives in the torture screw' harder.

RCCF

We lost Teddy because beatniks said he was nothing more than a glorified Jacory Harris and we Fired Coach Shannon who when being fired seemed to be getting all these studs we are mad we missed on and Happy we fired Randy about BUT now those same studs give Miami fits but everyone blames Randy lol...

Seantrel plays OL even if he did great who would really know it?

Obviously we are having trouble developing talent or We are regressing the talent that we recieve..

Miami just got new facilities..and still makes the Most Pros so Facilities Smacilities..

Want a Stadium Holler at the Rock Jabroni!!

All Private Schools have small budgets State Schools Get the Big Bucks..oh and Alumni may not like what they see hence depreciating funds.. Boone Pickens does the world for a OkState team who wins NO trophies...Ijs

I digress this is just my humble opinion not fact I am not a beatnik or have no inside info but hey Glass Homes are Pretty Easy to see into..

u do realize that its typical in college football to have coaches that did not play one position coaching another position. Al himself was a tight end. but he cut his teeth in coaching, coaching defense.

Self assessment and self awareness are two VERY powerful and positive tools for any personal growth. U seem to have both and that my friend is a GOOD thing.

Now UMike on the other hand...well U know that I have given up on him. LOL

Watch out for trolls. They thrive on sensing weakness of any kind. If you see a strange name on the blog be careful if they seem to be trying to stir things up. IJS

u r singing my song RCCF. it seems we always bitch at something that gets fixed but we still have problems after the fact, or other schools are doing those things and having success at them. my favorite is the notion that we needed to be 320lbs @ D tackle to be effective. football, college & pro is littered with 299lbs tackles. the weight gain might have actually slowed us down.

RCCF

U do realize our defense SUCKS being run by a tight end and LB who has 2yrs NFL and no accolades outside of that that state he is brilliant at what he does...The only promotion he has to his bio is by his bff.."Not a Good Look"..ijs Glass House Easy to See Into..

RCCF12%...appreciate U more Soup this Site is the BEST!!

KYcane

I haven't felt this hurt rooting for our Canes in a long time. And for fans like all of us here on the blog and many other individuals out there, it is not fair for us to be feeling disappointed and hurt when we pour our souls for this program..
Posted by: UpNorthCane | December 30, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Well said UpNorth - but I'm guessing its just one of those times when life is not fair and somehow we have to just catch our breath after a hard punch to the gut by the very thing we support.

Very good article Mr. Soup..a most reasonable wish list for the U, nothing outrageous for a team that is supposedly in "the process" and making its way back. By the way - I was all in like stink on sh*t for the pep rally and the game so any bad feelings begone.

In retrospect, the parking/tailgate seemed like a perfect metaphor for the whole damn program. Here we all are, Westsiders in one place, E5'ers in the other, canes fans circled all around the crumbling haunted remains of a once fine football institution.

Mel Tucker = Mark D'Nofrio Horrible Defensive Coordinators wanna see how I know and this is double the feeling on me being a BEARS fan watching us get gashed so TRUST I know what a Good D should be..

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1904984-chicago-bears-need-to-fire-defensive-coodinator-mel-tucker

Few Highlights from the Article tell me if these errors sound familiar:

- The Bears season ended thanks to a blown coverage by a player who probably shouldn't have been on the field in the first place. It was just one more mistake by the worst defense in the history of the franchise. The guy in charge of that defense has no business being back next season.

- There's no good reason Shea McClellin should've been playing over David Bass. McClellin isn't capable of holding up against the run. It was proven week after week. Yet Tucker kept starting him, and the Bears kept getting gashed on the ground.

They had injuries, but this isn't the first time a Bears team has had injuries. They're also not the only NFL team to suffer injuries. Yet that is the excuse Tucker has been given.

Lovie Smith had years with injuries.

This was an eye opening read because again Im fans of both but watching two Dominate Defenses turn Panzy really HURTS!!

but guys, the defense was not the problem in that game it was the offense. if we had a productive offense, they score less because they are on the field less. as it were, our defense was constantly behind the '8-ball.' time of procession was ridiculous.

Account Deleted

as much as we feel the D and No'D need to be improved let's not overlook the outstanding stat of the night on the O side of the ball.

Zero for 11 3rd down conversion tries in a bowl game after 15 extra practice sessions at the end of a season.

Now that deserves an award of some kind right??

RCCF

Had Our Defense Not SUCKED we wouldn't even be playing in the Russell Athletic Bowl AT ALL lol.. I mean if If were a 5th (Henn Preferrably) We'd All be Drunk...but D'No is our DCoordinator he and the TE who calls defensive plays love a 3-4 defense that leaves holes from the very hike of the play...Defense Sucks and in my best Nigel Bethel voice "I just wanna see more pressure, some man, and Wins"...But Im Solid to the U.

Yep....38 minutes UL....22 UM.....nothing new there.

Any long drives might have made a difference in this one.....

RCCF

sidebar- Stephen Morris is not that good of a QB...No News there guys, he proved that as much as the Defense proved they Suck...I think we all were blindsided by the glowing remarks from the Manning Prestige and just ran with it..The real QB's at that camp were loafing like the superstar Stud QB's they are. Stephen went in like the pupil he should've been and well they graded them accordingly..Our Bad for not seeing it for what it was.. Allen Iverson said "Practice" and we all scoffed but in reality the dude was leading the league in at least 3 statistical categories and no that attitude wasn't applaudable but was he wrong for scoffing at an event that was serving him no purpose at that time? I say that to say we were dooped by Stephen because his competition during the camp all basically dialed it down..

You don't understand. There are some that want the DC fired no matter what.

CaneRock

SOON! as D'Onofrio opened His mouth that 1st year, and said He didn't have tape on UMD's OC...EVEN THOUGH!, that OC, was the OC at LSU when they won the NC under Saban!...EVEN THOUGH!, that OC had over 25 YEARS! experience!...DEEEEEEAD GIVEAWAY! DEAD GIVEAWAY!

Account Deleted

need more?

UL had 7 possessions greater than 50 yds, and 5 of them were for more than 60 yds. Ball control.

UM had 1 possession for more than 50 yds, when the score was 36-2 and it was already well over.

UM had 6 possessions where we were held to less than 10 yds in total (we only had 11 possessions the entire game)....UL had only two, the initial safety and one 3 and out.....

Thank you.

What really hurts about the Louisville loss is the fact that we got beat by kids from our own backyard. But we can't dwell on it because most kids didn't come to Miami because of the pending NCAA investigation. Now that is over we really need to work on keeping the talent at home.

Hopefully this great recruiting class will pan out and Golden will not bolt to Penn State.

CaneRock

UL had the ball 38 minutes? OK.

We're a "bend don't break" defense, so that $hit shouldn't matter...right?

The Dude

I'm saying it won't matter if he brings in the top classes every year for the next 10 years. The guy is suspect in his philosophies.

LOL yea we know the defense is putrid the offense is just as putrid as well. JMO.

I think a lot could change with some talent out there but perhaps you are right. We play Pac 12 defense

The Dude

30CINCO,

We disagree then, that's fine. Would Boise State smash Miami? I say yes. I bet they've never had a class ranked higher than our lowest, ever.

I'm disagreeing because there is proof, its worked in the past. RE: Boise St, I stay away from that because I have no idea what would happen, no one does. FYI - they went 8-5 this season, I will take our season and future over theirs.

herbieibis

Don't worry, of those guys leaving some we'll make good pros and that is what our only claim to fame is these days, we are an A-1 pro farm team factory.

TonyCane

Go Canes.. I've never said we have lots of talent, but I have said it 100 times we have enough talent to NOT give up career days to mediocre players and teams. Teams that struggle on offense some how score 40 on us, an it got worse as the year went on. And this is year 3 with many of the same players. Sure we could use more talent, but D'No has to go.

Posted by: UMike

Here's the thing...Miami's collection of 4-star talent has declined every year since 2009. Every year. After you take away the transfers and those who did not qualify, Miami had 38 players on the 2009 squad that finished 9-4. This year's squad had just 20.

TonyCane

Here's another way to compare it...after factoring out transfers and those who did not qualify here's how our Week 1 rosters looked:

MIAMI 2010 SEASON
5-Star: 4
4-Star: 36
3-Star: 35
2-Star: 10

MIAMI 2013 SEASON
5-Star: 3
4-Star: 20
3-Star: 41
2-Star: 6

D'no = puppet
AG = puppet master

Please stop saying fire D'no, if you want him fired that means you want Golden fired. So please say fire Golden instead. Thanks

RCCF

Not Exactly Willie my friend...see the Puppet and Puppet Master is Correct..But even Gippeto wants a ring and if the Puppet is a dummy then guess what Gippeto can stay get rid of Pinocchio..Trust there are DCoordinators that Golden would love to have but probably fears won't accept not being HC..

Da U N Houston

No D needs to realize with the athletes he has he has to let them play. In south Florida we play aggressive, at all positions. There is no reason T3 is lining up 10 yrd off running a cover 3. This is the problem that Bethel and other recruits, and even the players are seeing. You don't have to play man, but datum let them bump in run while dropping to their zones!!!! Disguise the D!!! Run a twist or two!!!! Dayum!!!!!!!!
