Interesting and good views

Butch Davis!!!!

I'm actually leaning to the belief that Golden stays and after listening to Penn St's pitch will eventually end up using this to leverage more $ for himself and his assistants. If this is the case can't knock the hustle. If he leaves for HIS Dream Job and gets a lot more $ and he and his wife are comfortable with this I'm fine with it.

If Golden does indeed bolt he will have left me next coach in good shape as he has recruited very well (we have good but not great talent), the players are bigger, faster, stronger, and better conditioned, and he has repaired relationships with high school coaches. He's also laid out the template for how to run football camps for the next coach, which helped with recruiting. So if Golden leaves I will be disappointed but grateful for all he did at the U. Will post the next part very shortly.

James Coley is a good recruiter the new UM coach needs to keep him. If Golden leaves. If offered he will leave it makes since for Golden. I do believe the program is now attractive for a new coach. Thanks to Golden. Duke and S. Coley are program changers for sure! There are some pieces in place already and along with a top 2014 recruiting class the future is bright...

This time around I feel Miami can get "there guy"!

He's gonna decline the job because PSU will demand that he not wear the tie.

OK… CGNC, NOW YOU'VE GONE AND DONE IT!

Those rumors will be ALL OVER the "InterWeb" now!

CGNC

Good morning! I think it is time to revive this

https://a4-images.myspacecdn.com/images03/1/b7fa9142ec724b64bf1194dc8f696f34/300x300.jpg

LOL!!!! Hang in there Canes fans. Nothing we can do about any of it

roachcane77

Yeah, the fact that it's so snowy up there in PA, (they probably can't fly in today), and Al's wife is out sunning by the pool, probably leads to a "thanks for considering me meeting," and I appreciate the salary increase the U will now be sending my way now.

VA Cane

I do like the man but.... "all the snow has turned to water, Christmas days have come and gone, broken toys and faded colors, are all that's left to linger on".....the shine is off the ornament so to speak.

It was exciting when he came, a lot of fanfare and that's cool....but its the same old product that Fester and Onion gave us....bland offense not an attack D and its no different after 2003.....about the same middle of the road average football team who does not show up in key highlight games. we have been embarrassed way too many times....Louisville I and II, LSU, ND a couple times, KSU,FSU repeatedly, Duke VT....and UVA at the OB....talk about a cherry on top of the cream...ouch.

I get up in the morning first in my house....pretty much at 5 I got coffee on...cause I want to be first want to win. I got to do the best most complete appraisals cause I want to win...I comb the places most people don't go cause I want to have a fantastic record collection, I go to all my kids school things cause I want to be a good parent....I cater to my wife cook do little things cause I want to be a good husband...and when I coach I give it my all, cause I want to win....but I want my kids to learn to want to win in all aspects of living. I am driven to win in all things I do not lie cheat or steal....I drive myself I will myself. Winning is not a part time hobby or a process.....it is a full time job that demands commitment......dedication sacrifice. I am tired of being cut rate second hand news and losing so damn much. I am not used to it with my guys....we might lose a game or two, but we don't like it...we fix it. The Raiders and Hurricanes are my teams.....but they just do not will themselves to win....I think they want to win....but they want it to be easy. It is not and never will be easy it takes pain!!!

Dale Earnhardt...when you finish second, you are just the first to lose....It drives me man...JMO

CaneSawMassacre

Higher level employee at my office is friends with Coley (they went to high school) and his wife is a UM doctor. He travels on trips with the teams at times.

I asked him what Coley said early Friday. This was what Coley sent him.

"That's only in the press since their is an opening there"

He (my coworker) didn't know that PSU was flying down Saturday. So I know it's not much but take it however you want.

CaneSawMassacre

U

VA Cane

If he is smart he does take the deal....he needs to wean himself from Dno.....he is a terrible defensive coach....probably a nice guy, some of you know him...Soup? but as a defender he is just not good...too soft too nice his personality shows in his approach to defending..JMO

VA Cane

I feel fine either way. I do not think he is qualified to be HC of a major program like PSU, TX, UM, USC, LSU, FSU, Bama, Ok, Auburn, Mich, OSU, ND etc......he is young and really has not accomplished that much. Temple? that competition? Get real. I have seen enough of his style of coaching and think it is too mellow, laid back, and full of nepotism and cronyism. Some people coach that way and that's fine. I look at a mans demeanor and character. I want leaders of men, who are aggressive in all pursuits in life, and are able to touch both ends of the spectrum simultaneously....that is raise hell and strike terror and fear in your charges (without every cursing or spitting on them...its a learned thought out thing not a uncontrolled rant...gets you into trouble) yet at the same time have compassion and love for them. I see the soft side, and he's cool....but there is no attack mode aggression mode fear mode body bag mode....no Apocalypse Now....and I am sorry but it is my opinion that you cannot win that way. Our schemes on O, D and ST are not wired for that....have not been since Butch....we are nice and compassionate help you up guys. You do not win that way in this time. I have never been a nice guy on the field or sideline regarding aggressive football. I want to beat you down unmercifully its football not Dancing with the Stars or Show and Tell.

If he does go to PSU I cannot fault him; he's from up North played there and that is his dream....cannot fault him one bit...more money is great. He has my best wishes. If he stays it MUST change. I am not a fan of nepotism cronyism and being nice...on the field. The aggression, anger and rage with a cool head must come out on the field. We need to stop being meek and mild and start attacking our opponents....I mean hard fast quick relentless and fatal...JMO

roachcane77

Yeah… that would suck.

herbieibis

However this turns out, if he goes we need to have a new coach in place just as fast as Penn St. or dragging it out will ruin this recruiting class and my prize recruit Valentine will be gone to LSU and Thomas will bolt to FSU.

nemo2002

How pathetic would it be, if PSU offers Al Golden the HC job subject to the condition that D'No NOT be hired as DC . . . and AG accepts the deal?

RBLCane

Latest on Golden... Supposedly offer hasn't been extended yet... PSU set to interview AG on Sat and Franklin on Sun... Makes me think that if we don't know anything by the end of today then he's not going... Franklin seems like plan B for PSU... Also think that the fact they're coming to Golden could be because he's not as interested as many speculate... GO CANES

USAFCane

Not sure what is gong to occur but I hope it happens quickly. UL will be looking for a coach also. If AG stays then I hope he parlays this into money for assistants and replaces some of his assistants, maybe the entire D staff.

VfB_Cane

Seeing that I didn't make the initial CaneSpace / UM coaching staff, I'd like to apply as European talent scout to make sure that talented German guys like Bjoern Werner don't end up as Seminoles (yuck).

In other non-news, it seemslike Al Golden & Co. won't go public before Monday's press conference.
So, depending on your point of view, it'll be either Mamas & Papas or Boomtown Rats.

NY Trooper

If Al Golden wants to increase his salary by a couple million a year and better his family, which I am not 100% sure he will do, who could blame him. The question which needs to be decided quickly by our President and AD is where do we go from here. This process hopefully should already have begun. This might not go over well on this blog but going after a former coach or player at the U to bring the swagger back should not be a priority. Hiring guys like Cristobal would be probably be the easy, quicker and cheaper route but it also would maintain the mediocrity around here. We need a coach that relates to the players, stimulates the fan base, is able to put together a solid staff without hiring his buddies, and is able to lock down the south Florida recruiting footprint. I am not sure after today who our coach will be, but the U is one of the top ten NCAA programs ever and we need to start acting like it.

roachcane77

As WR coach, I would like to say we WILL be using Coley A LOT, Scott will be too tired from all of the windsprints I assign him to get into anymore trouble, Dorsett, Lewis and Waters will ALL get lots of action,
and Berrios will be a BLUR out of the slot on the quick slants!

WE'LL BE READY!

TJL

Maybe Cristobal & Shannon to L'ville-they are another Kentucky without the SOFLA guys-they need that pipeline going

Where Golden at?

mi@mic@ne

Golden may be exercising his soft defense rite now by not saying anything. So to me its 50 50 that he goes or stays... lol

i dont care what happens...i just want to get rid of the feeling after games where i say "What in the h#$% was that?"

nemo2002

Doesn't Al Golden's contract with UM contain an "escape clause" for him in the event he is ever offered the PSU head coaching job?

Any news?

KiriJax

I am thrilled that Meyer lost again. Finally getting exposed.

TLuv

RCCF- I agree. Bird was an outlier.

raizecane

Am I the only one thats glad the Suckeyes and Urban Liar lost ????

TLuv

WIllie-

I could be wrong, but I think it was a mix of being tired of the grind and wanting to pursue his career an an NBA executive. He's pretty awesome at that too.

RCCF

to GM…

WWIN

Why did Bird stop coaching then?

RCCF

Thot = That Hoe Out There… Reference to loose ladies and or harlots lol.. I believe its Chief Keef crap.. Im 35 man so Im slow to call someone a Thot but I do find it funny every other Tues. TLuv got it Bird didn't do bad as a coach, GM, or player, but I digress I agree in essence Great Players Usually don't make Great Coaches…

Dude on a Pale Horse

And Lurker, don't take everything so seriously man. Its all in fun.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Cristobal is an ho-hum hire. I don't want to have to wait on a coach to develop anymore. Just want to win.

TLuv

Bird took the Pacers to the Eastern Conf Finals twice and the NBA finals once.

Lurker

Go ahead and quit, then.

Stay in a job with no real title and no real security, for an opportunity to work and learn at the best football shop in the country and for significantly more money. Cristobal is a better candidate now after what he!s learned in Bama, than he would have been had he stayed in his figurehead job here.

smh

Dude on a Pale Horse

Funny the Herald doesn't even mention Butch... funny like sad, not like ha ha.

Usagainsttheworld

Wow.

Dude on a Pale Horse

If Al leaves and Cristobal is named HC, I quit.

KiriJax

Rob Chudzinski gets my vote.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I'm pretty sure that Bird was coach of the year with the Pacers.

Dude on a Pale Horse

WW,

Exactly man. You shouldn't be scrambling right now. You should already know. Look at Texas. What the hell are they doing? I like Strong, but how many people have they tried to offer it to? I mean you knew how long ago you weren't bringing Mack back? What a joke. You're going to force out a pretty well respected coach, you better know who the man is that's replacing him.

WWIN

RCCF, how did Bird do as a coach? I can't remember.

Also, I never understood why y'all call em thot's???? I know what it stands for but I didn't know if it was a abbreviation for something?

WWIN

As a AD at any school you should have a top 5 list of coaches at all times just in case ANYTHING happens. If you don't, you not a REAL AD!

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

I mixed emotions on the Golden situation.

On one hand I do like Golden. He seems like a stand up guy. Especially being punished for others peoples actions. And I do think he is a very good recruiter. On the other hand I feel like the team has regressed and we are still seeing the same brand of football from the Coker and Shannon eras.

I don't fault him at all if he takes the PSU job. How often does your dream job at your alma mater open up?

I sure hope Donna and the AD have had some plan in place in case a scenario like this took place. If not they are going to look like fools and further embarrass the athletic department.

RCCF

Larry Bird coached the Pacers..

Terrance Sullivan

LOL OGV.

orange 'n green in the vein

So, I have the over/under on how many minutes into the game before the Orange open it up on the scoreboard at 27 right now, sound about right for Sunday?

Oh, I see everybody is still paying attention to Alverage Slogan trying to extort another raise/extension/cover for his college roommate loser buddy, instead.

Never mind.

WWIN

What does Larry Bird coach? Lol

Jim Harbaugh was my boy, so I'll approve that but he was overall considered just a decent player

WWIN

Would you count Spurrier? He coached in the league at some point, won Heisman.

Posted by: 30CINCO | January 04, 2014 at 12:54 AM

Approved

Ole Ed Orgeron...

Please don't forget what he did at Ole Miss!

herbieibis

Dam straight, The Herb as Dee-Tackle coach. Beware All opposing RB's And QB's your azz will be ours next year. The heat is coming and rest assured Canes Nation, my azz is on the recruiting trail and we won't be understaffed at DT no longer. No more getting punked, no more half azz QB's making us look like a pop warner team. Soup done gave me the keys and The Herb is stoked.

Canesteeler

What a fuking circus? UM administration needs to get balls and tell AG either you are with us or against us. This fuking circus needs stability. VA cane drop the politics and get your country azz to Coral Gables. My choices would be Butch, Cristobal, Oregon and Chud.

Should Golden leave, Miami candidates would likely include former Hurricanes tight end and offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, fired Sunday by the Cleveland Browns after only one season; former FIU head coach Mario Cristobal, an ex-UM player and assistant; former UM assistant line coach and recent USC interim head coach Ed Orgeron; and former UM defensive coordinator Schiano, who was fired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday.

Louisville set to hire Golden. UL "source" says that bowl game performance by Hurricanes convinced UL that he was the right man for the job.

See my previous post

I'm happy for him….I liked him at Florida and Louisville….he will do well at Texas.

raizecane

Wow,,,,,Charlie Strong to Texas……...

JCane

Hey Soup:

I wanna be team historian. I like to live in the past!

Interesting to see the potential Strong to UTexas. The guy has done a great job and is ready. However, the reasons that the deep south wouldn't hire him years ago, as far as I'm aware, still apply. It is nice to see a place like UTexas wouldn't potentially let something so petty stand in the way.

Another ACC teams wins their bowl game…..congrats to Clemson

AfriCane

I would tend to buy into the notion that failed players make successful coaches. The competitive fire in their stomach needs to be quenched as it wasn't since their playing carriers were unsuccessful. They accomplish that by using the players they coach as a vessel to finally get it done.

Things I'm tired of hearing fans say...

1. Get rid of D'no and keep Golden. How many times must he tell y'all that this is HIS DEFENSE!

2. Let's bring in former great players to coach. Just because you were a great player doesn't mean you'll be a good coach. Matter of fact, name a good coach in the nfl that was a great player in their playing days. I think you are only allowed to be good at one, playing or coaching.

3. Well I'll just go with those two above for now

4-Real

That's my point Raize. What has THIS staff done 2 get YOUR blood pumping these past 3 seasons, minus the Uf win?

raizecane

4-real….we could have coach Saban,,,,,if we dont win games, people will not show. On other hand, we could have D'no and if he wins 11 - 12 a year, people will show….thats always been the Miami way.

4-Real

The fans feed off the coaches / team's energy. If we have something & someone 2 look 4ward fans will show up & support. See Fiu b4 cristobal was let go.
