CGNC

@The Dude - yes that is the horse in the photo - he was 25 when that was taken. I was showing and winning with him up until he was 23. I bought him when he was 14 and almost didn't because of his age then. he is phenomenal and knows a thing or two about winning. I became a much better competitor because of him and my daughter learned to really ride and compete on him so he gets a forever home from me. #softie #whyIambroke LOL

4-Real

Didn't Honest Al say we would have some suprise committs dring the All American games?

orange 'n green in the vein

Zone, it's for . . . felines.

That was the (euphemistically substituted) saying I've always played and been taught the sport with.

However, that 1-2-2 has helped them stay around in this game, which is why The Pimp is the defending national coach of the year and Alverage Slogan and I, well, aren't. Not even close.

Again.

Either of us.

They aren't really doing a great job attacking Syracuse, they throw the ball around the perimeter but don't get the zone a play behind consistently. They do have the shooters to expose them but they need a lot more of Tonye or Kelly flashing to the high post and then kicking out to open shooters relocating away from the direction the perimeter defenders are turning their head to sag on the entry pass and spotting behind the line to generate open looks at threes.

Or just let Garrius bomb threes from two steps past half court, that could work too apparently.

CGNC

OGV, I couldn't get the link to work....

Canesfan4life

Munchak fire by Titans, looks like he wants to coach Penn St.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Lol, that's awesome. My wife grew up on a horse ranch. She loves them. I don't trust them. One day, we will sell our house and buy a farm, probably when the baby grows up. She'll want a horse. They are expensive and too much work for me. She'll be on her own, lol.

I edited it to the full address CGNC, try it again, don't know what the problem is for you with it?

4-Real

Sony just scored in Army AA game. Sigh.....

orange 'n green in the vein

27 minutes might have been a little low on the over/under bar for UM to still be in this game apparently?

Get that plate of crow ready . . .

dg

In the 0 percent...should've been fired right after bowl game performance! He can't coach period at least not talented players. Some are just good at getting lesser talent to over achieve, maybe that's Golden. Outcoached and schemed in games has nothing to do with recruiting...Golden plays checkers while good coaches play chess!

VfB_Cane

Canes looking real good up until now. Didn't expect to see that.

orange 'n green in the vein

Execution looking good, keep it up down the finish.

UM is winning all the 50/50 battles for possession right now defensively. Hopefully they have enough left to continue as the home calls pile up from here on out.

VfB_Cane

Oh well. Clearly a rebuilding year for the BB team, but they will put up a good fight along the way. Love the way they kept their composure in a tough environment.

NativeCane

She'll want a horse. They are expensive and too much work for me. She'll be on her own, lol.Posted by: The Dude | January 04, 2014 at 03:05 PM

When it comes to wives and horses what a man says he will do and what he winds up doing are two different things. Lol, but either way Dude youll soon be parted from mucho dinero, lol.

Go Canes!!!

laquinton

Wow. Now Chad Thomas and NigelBethel take to twitter..... smh.

laquinton

And we just lost our dt valentine

The Good Old Days

Yikes! Losing Chad Thomas is not good.

LA3

Losing? Lost?

And the hits just keep on coming....Thanks AL!

LA3

What was TOP 5 class....sliding to 7...and drama will push it outside the TOP 10. Maybe TOP 20.

Al needs to go or stay....but not be Johnny Drama!

VfB_Cane

Even if Golden stays the damage is done. Kids and their families want stability when choosing a college, not the kind of drame we're known for.

And whoever is responsible for communication at the U, should start to earn his paycheck pronto. Their strategy is even more passive than our defensive scheme.

AfriCane

for a 'master communicator, AG played this wrong....I don't even know how winning a NC next year takes this taste out of our collective mouths. we all know & thinks hes going to leave.......wait a minute! butch did the same thing & bolted to Cleveland. but alas, @ the U, u move up to the NFL or we drop u. nobody sh!ts on this U.

For the Miami football program, the Al Golden watch continues.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reported early in the day that the Hurricanes coach would be meeting with Penn State on Saturday about its vacant coaching position after former Nittany Lions coach Bill O'Brien became the new coach of the Houston Texans. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported the same Friday night.

As of Saturday afternoon, there was still no official word on whether Golden had been offered the Penn State job, but Miami athletic director Blake James told the Sun Sentinel he's spoken with his coach.

Surfercane

We lost Chad Thomas?

Surfercane

We lost Valentine?

UpNorthCane27

We only lost valentine, chad thomas is a lil pissed right now but he is still committed...

They are saying that Al Golden has accepted the job at PEDOSTATE

4-Real

Valentine now has LSU his leader with Kentucky second. Valentine wants 2 go 2 LSU anyway, only now he has an alibi.

4-Real

If James makes the right hire we might GAIN more than we LOSE.

Surfercane

Ok we can NoT lose Thomas. All I've read is this guy is our next elite player, been compared to Duke on offense. A program changer!

Surfercane

4- real right on! The program is attractive and ready for a good run! Thank you Golden! The silver lining will be getting rid of coach D.

Surfercane

Upnorth - what site is "they" bro?

VfB_Cane

John Clark NBC10 @johnclarknbc10
A source tells me Penn State search committee is meeting with Al Golden now in Miami
---------------

Rumour, lie or speculation?

TonyCane

Guys...this may be for real. Out here in Austin I just heard that Charlie Strong has not signed with Texas yet because he is waiting to see if Golden leaves. No joke.

TonyCane

A reporter from KVUE is posting this.

MASTERMIND ‏@Pretty_MoneyMMG 1h
👀“@F5_Chad: “@_NigelBethel: Should I stay or should I go? But if I leave where should I go? 😢” G bruh, I feel like I threw up the 🙌 for 💩”

j.w.

Anyone get the sense that nobody has any damned idea what is going on? I do, don't trust twitter, don't trust the message boards, and especially don't trust canesport or any other pay site. This will play out, it may suck right now but it will be over in a matter of hours. Maybe we're better off, maybe we're exactly the same, maybe it sucks for a few more days, but don't get all worked up like some of the idiots on other message boards.
CGNC- my horse is about 19, I lease her. Cutting horse (14.5 quarter horse) but she has a heart like none other. She can spin, lateral, and roll back like none other!

It's all about the U program, not coaches!
F' the Turds!
GO CANES!!!

James ‏@JamesCorleone87 1h
@F5_Chad @_NigelBethel u should commit to the city and the school not a coach. Do what's best for your future. But gotta put on for the city

TonyCane

If you can get Strong, I say you tell Golden to stay in his Penn St meeting and not come out.

@F5_Chad @_NigelBethel this is a blessing for you both. Playing under Donofrio would have stunted your growth. Wait and see who miami hires

usagainsttheworld

high drama!

Go Canes

The moron who tweeted that to Thomas and bethel should be located and punched in the head.

u mean the 1st twit?

AfriCane

there were lots more. over 90% of the twits telling them to stick it out.

Susan Miller Degnan @smillerdegnan
#UM AD Blake James to me: "Al & I are in regular communication. He is our [fb] coach & I believe he will be our coach going forward."
-------------

If he is in "regular communication" and Golden wanted to stay, he wouldn't have to "believe" that Golden stays, he would KNOW it.
So read this as: Golden wants out and we are waiting if PSU wants him.

I hope not everybody in the athletic department is sitting around with hands in their lap.

AfriCane

u think strong would take the Miami job over texas? and take less money?

pbcfrcane13

I doubt it wouldn't make any sense to me at least other than he knows he can win and win big here because he has recruited here for years Texas not so much. Strong would be a huge long shot imo. Plus can't bring his boy Hurtt with him

TonyCane

No idea. But that is what KVUE's sports reporter (mike Barnes) is reporting as of this afternoon.

TonyCane

Strong already has the Florida connections if he took the Miami job. He'd be starting from scratch in Texas. Question is, does Miami have to match UT. And could we?
