Dude on a Pale Horse

Its hard to be an honorable mention anything under NoD.

JasonTerzis

Put me in the 25% ambivalent category.
On the plus side, Golden has gone from 6-to-7-to-9 wins. He can sell the crap out of the program to everyone: recruits, media, fans, alums. He's said and done all the right things navigating through the NCAA mess. And he has a top 5 ranked recruiting class set to come in.

But on the flip side, the defense has been brutal. No pressure ever on the QB. They make lots of excuses for poor/missed tackles. D'Onofrio should have already been gone. And James Coley as the OC is a step down from Jedd Fisch. Vanilla game plans.

With guys like Chudzinski, Schiano, Butch Davis and even Mario Cristobal out there - we shouldn't have much trouble finding a good coach who can win at the U.

Go Canes!!!

LA3...I agree, watching the Suckeyes and Roll Tide BOTH lose their bowl games did make me smile. Now, about that FSU game...

Another great article by the blogyman.

laquinton

If golden leaves. . IF !! Hope the new guy whomever he may be hopefully is a defensive mind. Or like auburn die. Hire a offensive mind with a damn good defensive coordinator.

Duane Akina from Texas can coach dbs. Very good track record

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think Mark Richt is a good coach. I think he can win a NC at Miami.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Mike Gundy isn't leaving Oklahoma State ever. They may as well be Mike Gundy State.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Or the Oklahoma State Fight'n Gundys.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Anyone on the shortlist without some success as a HC is a no.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Jan Gruden sounds like Jon's little sister? Pretty sure its Jay Gruden. Lol.

Dude on a Pale Horse

ESPN is saying that Charlie Strong told his staff he hadn't decided yet.

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, the defending ACC champs have a game against the undefeated, #2 ranked team in the nation, and this blog is still asking about support for the loser football coach who can't coach, scheme or win against teams that aren't completely outclassed or finish with nine wins or more on a season?

Broaden your sports portfolio guys. Who cares where Alverage Slogan goes to sell his next used car lemon of a football game?

Here's what's happening, Alverage set up the meeting, he tells UM he's not going, he takes the meeting and tries to land the job, then comes back and says he wasn't going to go but they made him an offer he has to consider seriously accepting, then Blake James at this point should look him square in his beady little eyes, laugh at him and say, "Fix the defense Alverage, you already got an extension and a raise for being a poor coach three seasons ago."

That's if Blake has any aptitude for the job and has Chud's, Butch's, Curtis', Mario's and Kenny's numbers on speed dial, which he should already and start dialing while Alverage looks like a doofus in the office after trying to strong arm him. 49-49 doesn't impress anybody except people that think Paterno should still have a stature to pedophile protection standing on campus somewhere.

Now, about this basketball game today with the competent coach that is The Pimp . . .

LA3

If BIG AL leaves,,,,,And I think is going too.

I want coach that understands O or D completely and is involved. Not just game managers. I beleive the HC needs to put is imprint on the game plan and make decisions with complete understanding of situations.
Les Miles, Saban, Jimbo, Strong, etc....they jump in and take over when it is needed. Never saw Al do that.
Leaders need to LEAD in times of need!

That's my boy right there!

RARA

ONFC...what you are seeing on defense is a product of poor scheme and read and react defensive philosophy. Because of that OC are scheming the defensive players out of position. That's why DB's are consistently 5 yards away from receivers when they catch the ball. The players are frequently caught with too much space when trying to bring down a WR or RB. As sorry as V-Tech's QB and offense was their OC outschemed D No resulting in THAT offense putting up 500 plus yards. We gave up 500 plus yards our last 6 games. Even when we were worse on defense with less talent during the Shannon era our defense never came close to doing what our defense did this year.

Clemson plays an attacking style of defense. We do not. Btw...FSU had the most talent in the ACC followed by Clemson. Imo we have the 3rd best talent closely followed by North Carolina and V-Tech. But we look slower and less athletic because we are coached on defense to play slow and read and react. Play more aggressively (and with a new scheme) and you will see us play closer to Clemson.

Thank U Sir.

Go Canes!!!

Posted by: JasonTerzis | January 04, 2014 at 01:02 PM

Sorry, but I don't see Chud or Schiano being too eagar at this point in their careers to "step down" from the NFL to join a "second tier" college FB program like UM (sad to say). Also, UM won't hire The Butch - even if he comes beggin' for the job. And Mario Cristobal - who was canned from FIU - and who bolted from a second chance to return to the U when Satan came a callin'. Are we going to hire HIM - as HC? I don't think so! (I hope not anyway!)

Dude on a Pale Horse

Where I am in the 50%, 25%, 25% rests on who we'd hire as a replacement. Cristobal? 50% don't leave. Chud? 25% he can stay or go. If its Butch then Golden can 25% his @ss on up to PSU.

CGNC

I am in the 50% however I am 100% tired of the drama and 10 years of losing. Step up AG or get to stepping with your best friend.

Posted by: Canesteeler | January 04, 2014 at 12:55 PM

LOL! So you are really in the ambivalent 25% with me and jw - j/k

Dude on a Pale Horse

CGNC, your horse is an old timer. 27 years sounds like a lot for an animal.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Is that the one you riding in the picture?

DallasTX Cane

Al has done some good things to provide stability & working with Donna get us thru a crisis that is only "minor" in hindsight. Make no mistake, mishandled and the NCAA would have neutered the Program for a generation. IMO we are in much better shape than we were before Al.

That being said; Al's major weakness has been his coordinators. And I have seen no indication that he is willing to be ruthless in his expectations and consequences. He needs experienced, excellent game-day coordinators. He obviously doesn't have the right people right now. If he isn't willing to admit this and take action, he will never realize his potential as a head coach. Reminds me of Mack Brown - with great coaches, great success; with bad or mediocre coach staff, little success & none against better coached teams.

So, if U leave Al: thanks for leaving the Program in a good state & good luck in the future. Now, on to the next guy...Admin, don't F it up!

Bottom line is that the rot in the Program that first surfaced in the LSU game, continued thru the Shannon years (see last game in OB); still hasn't been exorcised. The coaches and players change, but we still don't bother to show to big games. Inexcusable. How can a team coming off a 2 year bowl ban play like they don't give a dam when they finally get to a bowl?!? How can a senior QB playing in his last college game play like a lost little babe & not seem to care?!? How many missed tackles? Missed assignments? It's the same year after year. When will we have a team that stands up a makes a play? That stands up and wins a big game (UF noted)? This is leadership & coaching.

Either step up & stay Al - and fire D'No. Or leave. Time to shit or get off the pot.

Canesfan4life

I'm the 25% that either wants him gone or at least wholesale changes in the coaching staff. We we a 4 win team at best.
On offense without great individual plays by Duke, Coley, and Dorsett, we wouldn't have done much.
Horrible QB play(we had to dumb down the offense FOR A SENIOR QB)
On defense we were unable to tackle, cover, or rush the passer.
I've forgiven Butch, so he would be great, or Chud, Mario, or Orgeron.

CGNC

Who cares where Alverage Slogan goes to sell his next used car lemon of a football game?

OGV - that is FUNNY!!!!! The b-ball game is not on TV here but GO CANES

USAFCane

ESPN article mentioning Schiano, SMart and clemson OC.

WHat an=bout Smart? Not the Tides best defensive season, but coaches under the guru that is Saban.

What about the TTU coach?

Franklin at Vandy seems to be highly regarded.

Personnally, I've liked ehat Fedora has done at UNC

Cutliff from Duke? Their greatest season ever this year.

Anyways, think Golden sticks with the Canes but damn he need the school to drum up some money for food assistants.

CGNC

Either step up & stay Al - and fire D'No. Or leave. Time to shit or get off the pot.

Hellloooo DTC!! My opinion is that it is the reflection of the coaches that have been hired by the administration. Unless and until that changes, I don't expect much to change

USAFCane

If he is parlaying this into more money for UM assistants then goes out and gets some upgrades, it might just be stroke of genius that makes AG.

sass

Mario or mark stoops if golden leaves. Both these guys could be good coaches. They both can recruit and would keep the class together. Keep the offensive coaches including coley ( Which they both know) dump the D coaches except maybe barrow. Its probably more realistic. I personally hope golden stays. Just my 2¢

UpNorthCane27

Soup i appreciate the job as the DB coach lol. I will have those boys training hand combat so that we ham up and mess up some of those diva wide recievers

sass

and im a total 12%.

dj moonbat

Mark Richt-Former Cane that needs OUT of GA.

Posted by: LA3 | January 04, 2014 at 01:07 PM


I have trouble believing he would be interested, but if he were, I would take him over any of the names mentioned so far. Including Butch.

Richt recruits and develops some good athletes; give him ready access to South Florida and his status as a UM alum, and I think he'd be gold. Plus, he's a bunch younger than Butch, and has no history of pissing people off at UM.

DallasTX Cane

Hellooooo CGNC! U are spot on as always. Happy New Year btw!

HawaiiCane

Butch Davis!!!!

Dude on a Pale Horse

dj,

As usual, I agree with everrything you posted, however what Butch built was the greatest team ever. At UNC he built a sick front 7.

Posted by: The Dude | January 04, 2014 at 02:01 PM


Oh, I know. I am pretty sure that Butch would have Miami back to being a perennial Top 5 team in a few years. But then he would retire.

Dude on a Pale Horse

And Georgia will be sick of Mark Richt by then. Then Miami can swoop in.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think my last post was eaten. Hire Butch, let him build it, win one, retire, then its Richt's time.

J'Ville Cane

I want Bud Foster- not expensive, knows how to prepare a defense with 2, 3 and one or two 5 stars sprinkled in. So we want need to hear these excuses about not having talent.

Bring Don back to coach the running backs.

Bring in Dorsey as the qb coach/ Co offensive coordinator.

Let's go get number 6 & 7.

orange 'n green in the vein

CGNC, because you're a fan of competent coaching at UM;

raizecane

50% here……i wont lose a wink of sleep if he leaves or stays…. me thinks he stays though. Penn State will offer more $$ but golden said the last 3 years have been the toughest (NCAA).

So why would he leave to go to school that will be dealing with the NCAA for a few more years? Also, the chance of Miami wining the ACC in next 3 years is greater than Penn State winning anything in the BIG 10

orange 'n green in the vein

This just in, Garrius Adams has unlimited range.

Now back to your regularly scheduled hand wringing over Alverage Slogan and where he's parking his career 49-49 record of failure next year.

RARA

Raizecane...that's the primary reason I am leaning towards him staying.

Texascane

"What about the TTU coach?"

As an alum of TTU, ain't no way KK is going anywhere for a while. Having too much fun at his alma mater and after the fiasco with Leach firing and the Tuberville mess, Tech admin would do anything to keep him there.

If Al gets a chance to go home and takes it, I don't fault him a bit. I will say that with the addition of Louisville and the improvement at Duke, the ACC is a much tougher test for Miami going forward ( I would rank us fifth next year).

In addition, if he goes to PSU he gets to keep Dinofrio employed for another three or four years.

Miami will probably be picked third (based on this year- correctly) in the Coastal next year behind Duke and UNC. Al can be third in a Big 10 Division at PSU or third in an ACC Division.

What it comes down to is how much the fact that Donna and Hocutt didn't tell him about the investigation during his interview still grates on him.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Mike Munchak has been fired.

orange 'n green in the vein

Well, considering they've turned the ball over eight times in total and six more than the Orange, being down only four so far has to be a win for UM today.

They've suckered Syracuse into the type of grind game they need to have a chance to win but we'll see if they can clean it up and tighten up the execution and find another level of defensive intensity to step up to and pull this out over the last 20 minutes of play.

Pbcfrcane13

That Damn zone is so annoying!

VfB_Cane

Canes hoops game is fun for those who love defensive minded, structurally sound basketball. You get that a lot in Europe, but only on rare occasions in the NBA.

Now, Canes and defense in one sentence is bound to bring out the beast in OGV ...

Account Deleted

If AG goes we lose some recruits for sure.

If AG stays we'll still lose some, the doubt factor of his long term tenure is out there.

Either way this soap opera didn't help us.

I'm in the 50% either don't care or please go. Maybe if No'D goes I'll reconsider. But right now I see 2014 as AG's last chance...
