Second!

Go Canes

4 Real...Yes, everyone should listen to you and your "399,999" friends instead of the four All Americans I just posted that can't wait to play for him.

So let me ask you this. Since according to you Golden is so bad, why are the brothers of TWO current players, both of which are All World and can go to ANY school in America, still picking UM?

Terrance Sullivan

I love it! Go Canes!

Terrance Sullivan

Are we gonna be staying at our normal spot at the Hampton this upcoming season. I know I already will be coming for the FSU, UNC, Pitt, Duke games. Go Canes! As far as road games gonna do the GT and Louisville games.

SOUP

Who was right?

Who told U not to get your knickers in a wad?

Who told U about the rocking chair?

VfB_Cane

Soup, you might want to spend an additional "t". "Penn Sate" sounds like a dish you'd order at a Thai restaurant LOL

4-Real

Go Canes, are you a Miami Hurricane fan or just an Al Golden fan? Had he left 4 Penn st would u have followed? Once again what were these kids suppose 2 say while still committed 2 Miami?

FishU8

We'll he stays! Hope we can now locked down these recruits especially Valentine!! I know this is crazy question be is No-d going to be back to?

KYcane

So now, who was right?

Well, I plan on listening to the Joe Rose interview online in the morning. (6:30am?)

Probably just a bunch of "softball" questions, but who knows, maybe something interesting will be revealed…

http://wqam.com/joe-rose-show/

Joe, FORCE THE ISSUE… PLEASE!

Pbcfrcane13

Roach come on you and me both know that's not happening.

Go Canes

I am a Canes fan and a Golden fan.

And if Golden left I would still root for him but never before my own team.

For the record your comment, as it did last time, makes absolutely no sense.

No one forced them to be committed. If they didn't trust, believe in and respect coach Golden, if their own flesh and blood who actually go to UM RIGHT NOW and are coached by him spoke badly of him, they'd just go somewhere else wouldn't they?


4-Real

Go Canes, could it be possible those kids committed to Miami, especially McDermott who gets to play with his brother his senior year? Better yet, how many current players are singing praises 2 Golden?

4-Real

Do you still root 4 Coker & Shannon Go Canes? Afterall, they ARE responsible 4 Miami's last NC! Golden not so much.

Go Canes

No it's not possible.

That response also made NO sense.

IF the coach is so bad, as you say, do you REALLY THINK Linder and McDermott would want their brothers here?

Go Canes

I do root for Shannon. He is a lifetime Cane who unfortunately was completely over his head as coach here.

I supported him his entire time here, only acknowledging a change was need after he took an extremely talented 2010 team and ran it into the ground.

2002nemo

AL IS GOLDEN (TONIGHT)

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE U (ALWAYS)

4-Real

Chad Thomas tweeted that he committed 2 Miami, not the coach. Did you notice these kids you mentioned didn't tweet til after the fact? Just like everyone else they were taking the WAIT-N-C approach. Now that its official that Golden will remain the coach its only natural they praise Golden if they plan on being Canes right? What are they suppose 2 say? I really wish he would have left?!!!

CGNC

Ok. I get to keep my Hurricane Club money. Oh well.

Tim Reynolds ‏@ByTimReynolds 2h

So imagine this potential recruiting pitch from Al Golden: "I could have gone home, to my alma mater, my dream job. And I'm still at Miami."

jsy

What I can't understand is how some fans are happy golden is back and act like he did nothing wrong. It's blatantly obvious many ppl are golden fans first um fan second. Seriously if your gf told you that she was commited in the long run but at the first sign that her hs crush is single she bounces for the weekend has a fling and comes back and says I'm commited would you accept her with open arms? Esp when she's not even all that she claims to be. Seriously it's like golden is placed on such a high pedestal by some it's like hero worship and the man can do no wrong.

SOUP

After UM posted Golden’s statement, incoming recruit Braxton Berrios wrote on Twitter: “WE ALL STAND WITH THE U!! It’s a canes thing, you guys just wouldn’t understand.”

Cassandra Mitchell, the mother of UM star running back Duke Johnson, said when she “heard the news, I texted Coach Golden and told him, ‘Thank you.’ It shows stability and a commitment to the team.”

Incoming offensive lineman Kc McDermott, a four-star recruit from Palm Beach Central and the younger brother of UM center Shane McDermott, was thrilled Golden is staying, according to his dad, Randy. He reports to Coral Gables to begin his college career on Wednesday.

“Like I said before, we love Al Golden and we love his wife Kelly,’’ Randy McDermott said. “Kc is very happy.”

Miami Booker T. Washington High defensive end Chad Thomas said he first began hearing rumors about Golden possibly heading to Penn State when he played in the Under Armour All-American game earlier this week.

“I called Coach and asked him what was going on,” said Thomas, widely considered UM’s top defensive recruit.

“Coach [Jethro] Franklin, [Micheal] Barrow and Golden told me to just concentrate on the things I could handle and things would work out.”

Yeah, as long as she wins a National Championship in three years or less. Other than that, she's gone!

thats what she did not say..lol

Account Deleted

of course this also pretty locks up another year of No'D.....

4-Real

Go Canes, do you honestly believe that Linder, McDermott, and the rest of our committs would have followed Golden 2 PSU had he got the job? Just what I thought.

jsy

Soup you are a better person than me my man bc I take goldens action as a total slap in the face

BEERicane

Yeah, as long as she wins a National Championship in three years or less. Other than that, she's gone!

Posted by: SOUP | January 05, 2014 at 08:10 PM

Shouldn't she win a Nutional Championship?

CGNC

Posted by: jsy | January 05, 2014 at 08:06 PM

People see what they want. We are his second choice. Plain and simple as shown by how long this issue was dragging out. I am loyal to the Canes not a particular coach

SOUP

BEERicane...I was gonna say somethin' about like that, but then I tought, maybe my wife could read this, so I said NO! But I wanted to, really bad. LOL

CGNC

I bet my house PSU would not allow NOFENSE to follow him to Happy Valley.

Posted by: SinisterCane | January 05, 2014 at 08:09 PM

LOL or they had someone analyze film

BEERicane

LOL, SOUP. Glad I could put it out there for ya!

jsy

I hope golden proves his commitment to the u by cutting dno. That way he can improve on the field and prove that the u comes before personal ties and that nothing and no one is bigger that the program. The u is not psu where one man defines the program. The u is unique bc the program is and will always be bigger than one person and I hope al sees that

On another note, gutsy win by the 49ers up in Green Bay.

Yoopercane

I am speechless, I just swallowed the bull frog! The drama did not have to go this long though..could have ended sooner. There is nothing like spilling your guts on this blog only to eat crow.

mi@mic@ne

Maybe Golden belongs to the dark side and was sent out by Penn State to destroy the U. The meeting at the university was a pep session and a promise if he was successful he would become the coach and have his own statue put up were Jo Pas used to be.

SOUP

FROM SUN SENTINEL:

For three years, Golden has looked like a great coach, sounded like a great coach and carried himself like a great coach right up to kickoff. Again: You want to see more at that point now.

The real question about Golden's flirtation with Penn State was if the timing was best for a change. Did Golden need something Miami couldn't offer, and Miami want one of its coaching alums on the market like Greg Schiano or Rob Chudzinski?

We'll never know if Golden was offered the Penn State job. But this past week was unusual by Miami standards where coaches thinking of leaving went to something bigger.

Jimmy Johnson to Dallas, Dennis Erickson to Seattle, Butch Davis to Cleveland. Those were undeniably better jobs for more money.

Penn State isn't a better job. Golden seemed to decide that in the end. Now he can go about improving a program that needs improving. Something wasn't quite right for Miami last season, even if you recognize it took a progressive step forward with nine wins and a bowl appearance.

The bowl game against Louisville, in which they looked like a kid lost in the mall, showed how far they still have to go. The defense was a sieve all season. Was that just players? Was it coaching, too?

"We are eager to welcome our student athletes back to campus next week," Golden said Sunday.

HawaiiCane

I still want Butch Davis back!

SOUP

LOL, SOUP. Glad I could put it out there for ya!

I find your views interesting and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

mi@mic@ne

lol ...i just write because i can point out the truth of what i said here so i can say I told you so...lol

mi@mic@ne

It may be a subconscious wish of goldens. I find it interesting that he would be in such denial about the defense.

Keoki

With Golden attempting to go to PSU, the UM Board should NOT have taken him back & kept pursuing our next HC - he's on my Sh!t List.

We're his Plan B

Golden better be on a short leash or we will continue with this sub-par BS!

F' the Turds!
ACC Championship or bust next year for starters!

KiriJax

For the record, I'm very relieved that Golden is returning. I'll save most of my vile for PSU who IMO thought they could come in and snatch Golden away just because he came from there. He's turned them downed twice now so may they never darken our doorstep again. As for Golden, he needs to finish strong with this class and let his buddy D'Onofrio go find other employment. He lost a lot of fan support this week and those are the only things that will win the fans back Go Canes!

WWIN

DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!!!!

j.w.

So, all that and we're right back where we were. Golden has work to do if he wants the fan base next year, we can't have more of the same. What he says tomorrow should be interesting.

SOUP

TIME OUT.

Look all this means is this:

1. Golden gets TWO more years to get it done.

2. If he gets it done we are GOLDEN!

3. If he fails he lands on his head.

What is the problem with that?

"There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami. While I am flattered that our progress at The U during an extremely difficult period of time is recognized, I am also appreciative of just what we have here at UM and I am not a candidate for another position. We are eager to welcome our student athletes back to campus next week and visit with prospective student-athletes and their families beginning January 15."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

"I am not a candidate for another position"?

More like..."I am NO LONGER an APPLICANT for another position."

My knickers are in a bigger wad now then they were yesterday!

And I'm rocking da hell out dis rocking chair!

Tgu_Cane

D'No is not the problem here. Golden is as committed to Miami as he is committed to his loser defensive scheme. We better get more K-Y for next season because we will need it.

Anthony

Cannot wait to hear the question posed to Golden if he was offered the Penn St. job and if he turned it down... A Direct question that Golden will sideswipe by saying,

it doesn't make a difference, I'm here at Miami for the long haul and ready to move forward....

Follow up question ? If you're here for the long haul Coach, why even entertain the job for many days and go through the interview process...

Uhhhh, hhhmmmm, haaaaaaa, at the end of the day, it's all part of the process. We've been through hard times here with the NCAA and we're now ready to move forward...

Final question. What do you plan do do about the defensive side of the ball and did Coach D'ohno get a contract raise and extension as has been leaked and being reported ?

That's a private matter between he and the University.

But of course, there's not one reporter that will pose any of those questions except for maybe Joe Rose, and he can't for fear of losing Golden on his Monday morning "reasons" why we lost and moving on to the process of how we need to get better show.

I was really hoping Golden was different, but these egocentric coaches are all the same bUllSh!t artists. Good luck Coach Golden. We all hope that U are able to lead the Canes back to glory. Please try starting with beating a team during the season that ends up finishing the season ranked. So far your 0-9 going into Ur 4th. year. Accountability and Results is all that matters now. The Honeymoon is over.

AfriCane

I don't support him, I support the canes. For me he has 0 wiggle room now, adding to the little he had because of his XL love handle in the 1st place. No one focks with this U!!!

Are you serious, you think he turned them down???? HAHAHAHAHA

If he didn't want the job he wouldn't have been silent Bob all weekend. He didn't get the job so he had no other choice but to come back. Psu didn't buy that used car he was trying to sell em. Golden's agent initiated the contact both times! They said we like your wardrobe but we did watch the bowl game

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Also why didn't he go up there the first since they wanted him here then too? What made this time different?

WWIN

Golden apologist PLEASE READ this 3 times and stop blaming D'no. Even if it is D'no the man in charge is letting him do it which is even worse!

Clip from newspaper article not from me!

D’Onofrio and Golden like to blitz some but prefer to rush four and not give up the big play.Some players would like to play more man-to-man and less zone. Make no mistake: Golden is very much involved in the schemes this defense plays. He and D'Onofrio share similar philosophies.

Golden is a fool. Every move he makes from here on out is going to be criticized intensely and he will deserve it. Oh yeah, and he's not letting D'Onofrio go, so we better all get used to sucking. Do we play Clemson next year? If so we have at least 4 losses next year.

No way RCCF,

We just got delivered a big 'ole block of swiss cheese until 2020. Might as well put the bus in the local high school auto shop until then. I'd fire Al over all of this and hire Butch tomorrow. Just goes to show how acceptable mediocrity is within the admin these days. Makes me think if Randy had a bunch of great slogans and was nicer with the media he'd still be here.

I'm assuming a lot of it. Hoping for God's sake I am wrong. Expecially about this defense. Definitely he will be scrutinized intensely. Golden will probably come out Monday and say 1,000 things that everyone wants to hear. I just want to see him back up his talk for once.

SOUP

I have been notified by the UM admin that everyone from Canespace has been notified that they are now FIRED! Get over it and get to steppin...

RCCF

The Dude…….Im Really at a Loss for Words..

SOUP wants to be right but I'm with CGNC does being right matter when the guy basically screwed everybody for a weekend of fun to come back and say he never did anything wrong? Yea Not Happy at all Im about my CANES those kids deserve better.. Friend or No Friend No'D has done nothing to keep his job and even if he and Golden share philosophies Golden is an offensive player maybe he should focus on that end or he and his buddy can work ST the Defense needs a facelift Nigel Patten is AUTOMATICALLY my fav player Calling out the Vanilla plays is a Man Move and Winner Move.. Kaaya is tearing up the Semper Fi Bowl so far.. and that is my take I still want someone who is a CANE as CEO and honestly think in all fairness Golden should be fired NOW because of his shenanigans..
