Good morning!

SinisterCane

When Al leaves can Donna chill with the BIG TEN influence

SOUP

Sinister...Al ain't going anywhere. He is staying at UM just to piss off OGV. Made it his mission in life from what I am told?

UMike

Al can stay... D'No needs to go

SinisterCane

Soup

Sorry but count me in with OGV, I lost faith in AL with the Duke loss and if there are NO changes to the coaching staff we'll ACC whippin' dawg for years to come

CGNC

Good morning - cold here - 25! Yuck

UMike

was 20 this morning..wind chill to single digits grrr lol

Schweaty Balls

You guys need to chill on AG leaving. Would be the biggest disaster for this program since Butch leaving if AG goes.

Schweaty Balls

25 and 20 degrees?! Please! Its -16 with the windchill here in NYC. Don't even start.

UMike

I dont care what it is in NYC... when your born and raised in Miami and feel 20 degrees with a heavy wind...its dam cold lol

Our defense would approve 50 spots just with NOd's departure

Schweaty Balls

You soft Miami people need to get it together. You don't even have a clue what cold is.

Schweaty Balls

I am also not saying that it would not be the worst thing in the world if Dno left.

I guess my biggest thing with the AG teams is that I see them play with zero emotion. Its ok to get excited and play mean and all that stuff. Keep it under control obviously but show some darn emotion once in a while like you actually want to pound the other guys face in the ground. These guys just seem like they sleepwalk through games.

UMike

Schweaty..who you calling soft... come on man lol

UMike

This guy I work with who is a Michigan fan comes up to me and is like "Dude... you guys didnt even show up"... of course talking about the bowl game.

And Michigan did?

I used to be stationed in CT, I KNOW COLD lol

UMike

I have no idea what Michigan did, he wasn't talking smack about Miami, he was just making a comment..he also asked "what happened"...Go Canes your way to quick to defend anything to do with Miami lol

VA Cane

Good morning all, 20 degrees here 16 with wind chill....I wish we were playing this morning....I love it. Anybody up this way give me a shout, cause at noon we are gonna go throw it around again....just to stay on our game. We are not in unis....but sweats, long underwear, facemasks etc....I prepare my boys for the weather. Maybe Al and staff could fly in.....by coach....and learn the game the way I teach it cause u tough (yea small letters for small things) aint working.....its a punchline!!! How about Mountain Hillbilly Country Azz Tough!!!! A bunch of 13 year old Silent Assassins who are 5 time champs led by a fundamental teaching tough no nonsense old style take no prisoners stuff you in a body bag Apocalypse Now Coach!!! Cmon up we will teach you the game baby. Season over we out in 16 degree weather hungry for winning another title we live it here....our training camp is year round....we aint in Coral Gables putting our stuff away while the HC and his DC either are on the beach tanning or working out a buddy deal to go to PSU. Better buy some warm stuff guys its cold there too!!!! LMAO LOL!!!!! Man I am having an awesome New Year life is grand!!!!

he also asked "what happened"...

AG leaving would set this program back 3 - 4 years. I agree that No D has to leave but if Golden leaves, be prepared for a few years of 8 - 9 win seasons (if that).

Also say goodbye to a top 5 recruiting class. Miami does not have the $$ or the nutsack to hire a big name to keep recruits from jumping.

Ohio_Cane

Manny Navarro ‏@Manny_Navarro 40s

If I'm Al Golden and I'm not leaving for #PennState I'm using all this to get more money to upgrade my coaching staff #UM

SOUP

UCF averaged a class ranking of #65, with a high of #39, and a low of #90.

Louisville averaged a ranking of #50, with a high of #29 and a low of #77.

Baylor averaged a ranking of #43, with a high of #31 and a low of #55.

Miami averaged a ranking of #19, with a high of #9 and a low of #36.

SOUP

Ohio...so Manny is saying that the coaching staff at UM needs an "upgrade"? Or is he saying that Golden feels that his coaching staff needs an "upgrade"? Or is he saying BOTH?

Ohio_Cane

Ryheem Lockley to Marshall.

U all know what that means.

Ohio_Cane

SOUP, Manny is saying Golden's staff needs an upgrade. That was a "if I were in his shoes" type post.

UMike

Posted by: SOUP | January 03, 2014 at 10:02 AM

No I don't. Saying AG needs to go to Penn St b/c 9-4 is not good enough with average players on the roster and after he stuck by and lead this program through 3 years of muck is over-stating things. Any other good coach would have jumped ship 2 years ago. Fans around here have unrealistic expectations.

As I said, Dno is a waste, that's clear, but AG is a very good HC and this program would be back to 7-6 years if he left.

UMike

Ohio..Griffin has been close for what seems like forever lol. Lots of other kids got their tests scores back already, Im wondering if he did too and didnt make it, because it sure is quiet in his camp. He would be a great addition though, so I hope he does.

Schweaty Balls

All this recruiting talk is meaningless until we know what AG is going to do. You guys can talk this guy and that guy all you want but if AG leaves, say buh bye to that top 5 class we have right now.

SinisterCane

As I said, Dno is a waste, that's clear, but AG is a very good HC and this program would be back to 7-6 years if he left.


I respectfully disagree with you, a good coach can turns things around very quickly, at this point I don't see what makes Al such a good coach as you stated

SinisterCane

If AL is looking I hope UM is looking also

herbieibis

Losing a kid to Marshal, now what does that tell you? It Tells The Herb, that he's going to play for our farm club and he was a late addition last year, when we turned a rock over and discovered him. No big loss.

Ohio_Cane

Golden isn't going anywhere, so I'll keep talking recruiting.

Posted by: SinisterCane | January 03, 2014 at 10:22 AM

Well I respectfully disagree with you. A good coach who has not been hamstrung by NCAA sanctions for 3 years can certainly do that but that was not case this year or the last 2. And every year he has been here, this team has had more wins than the year before which is progress. Now we have a top 5 class coming in, we have no more whiny Randy Shannon players to deal with and now AG can bring in HIS players and recruit how he wants without the shadow of the NCAA around. If in 2-3 years we are still stuck at 9-4 or 8-5 with no ACC or BCS bowl game, than sure, I might agree with you, but I for one am not ready to give up on AG until he allowed to play with a full deck.

30CINCO

shoot! what Lockley and Grffin bring to the table is what we need, that big WR who we can just toss it in the air to in the redzone. Thats the one thing our WR corp is missing. we got the speed, we need that size tho.

UMike

Brady will help with that.

Ohio_Cane

So will Njoku. I believe he has a committable offer now that Lockley is gone.

Go Canes

UMike Michigan got absolutely rolled in their bowl game.

It's not a matter of defending the U, it's a pot calling the kettle for a Michigan fan to say anything.

And I couldn't possibly agree more that losing Golden would set us way back yet again.

You have kids like Mark Walton committing already for a reason. We've been on him for three years now. He knows, trusts and has a relationship with our staff.

Having to re-establish all those connections takes time, and thats only IF the next coach can do it as well as Golden has.

UMike

We've been on Walton for 3 years now?

Terrance Sullivan

23 degrees here with the wind chill in the 10's lol.I have a feeling Golden stays.

UMike

My problem with Golden is really IF he allows D'No to stay. To me that means he doesnt see the big picture and would rather keep his buddy on staff than improve. I don't think Golden is that dumb though.

30CINCO

Brady will help with that.

Sounds good to me!

Go Canes

One more thing. Alabama is the gold standard of college football right?

Think about this. It has the #1 recruiting classes, all the facilities, an unlimited bankroll for coaches, one of the largest and most active booster bases in the country.

Yet in his seven seasons Saban has lost at least two games in more than half of them.

I'm not comparing Golden to Saban. They are on two different levels in experience, teaching and winning.

But it does serve to illustrate how impossible it has become to become dominant and stay there.

I can easily see them losing three games without McCarron next year.

This isn't the 80s and 90s where our D is cracking Nebraska's wishbone.

College football has become a pass happy free for all. Fielding a dominant D is getting pretty close to impossible.

Further proof? Bama played three good offenses this season, TAMU, Auburn and OU. They gave up 42,34 and 45 and over 500 yds of offense to each.

Again, not comparing us to them.

Just food for thought.

UMike

Oh, and Darrell Langham is 6'5

UMike

Go Canes, I can agree with some of that, but the issue is we gave up those points and yards to VT, DUKE etc, not top ranked teams. Our D has got worse. Bama lost tons of talent on D, we had almost all our guys back. Big difference there imo.

Posted by: UMike | January 03, 2014 at 10:45 AM

I agree with that assessment 100%. Dno is awful, he is a crappy coach. The defense at Miami should not be this bad no matter who the coach is. If AG wants to win he needs to dump his buddy no matter how difficult it might be.

I just want these guys to play with just a little emotion. I see nothing from them anytime they step onto the football field.

The Miami Hurricanes Soft Bigotry Of Low Expectations:

Here is a hint: they just lost to Duke by 18! I will go ahead and confirm that Miami is not back so we can move on to actual relevant discussion. Just because they aren’t back doesn’t mean these performances are acceptable. There is a vast middle ground.

You want to know who just put up over 500 yards on Miami? Let me introduce you to Duke’s Juwan Thompson. He is the epitome of a team player and a star running back. But when Duke literally ran out of linebackers, he agreed to move to linebacker. He is now playing both positions (and by playing I mean he is getting carries and registering tackles). That is great testament to his character, and also takes a sledgehammer to the theory that Golden does not have the tools to compete. Duke is literally playing a player both ways, and the Canes need exactly how many top-level recruits to not give up 500 yards?

http://www.pageqsports.com/2013/11/miamis-soft-bigotry-of-low-expectations/

JCane

Anyone remember Devin Hester?? If I recall, he couldn't get in, did what he needed to do for a year, and then stuck with his original desire of playing for the U. There are many examples of folks getting in, either the same year or coming the next. However, like UMike said, there are the majority who don't. Hope Griffin does what is necessary.

Still amazes me how much focus there is out there on other sites about the couple of big names not choosing the U (ie Cook, Rudolph..). Everyone isn't gonna come here no matter what, and they have their reasons. Cook wants to be da man, and likely coming with Yearby with Duke here, etc. wasn't on his agenda, while picking the hot school was. It hurts, but who ever knows where the prima donna types are gonna end up (yes, Cook doing the Gator thing shortly before picking FSU counts as silly games). This year's recruiting class looks just a few pieces away from awesome, and a few more commits (Jackson, etc) could put it there (assuming guys like Bethel stick).

Schweaty Balls

Posted by: UMike | January 03, 2014 at 11:11 AM

Putting up with a$$holes like Luther Campbell is why AG will leave. Who needs it. He is a flat out racist and he has about as much business involved in running a football team than a polar bear does, and I bet the polar bear would do a lot better job given the chance. Campbell is a wannabe and like a lot of Miami fans, still lives in 1987.

UMike

Jackson is starting to look iffy and may also wind up at FSU sadly. The smoke is starting to blow that way a little bit. What I don't get is all these recruits wanting to go to the same school when they only just met at camps and what not lol.. I can see if a kid is your bff and you grew up together etc, but choosing were to get your education and live he next 4 year based on what some other kid decides is foolish

CalgaryCane

Players playing without emotion is a symptom of how the staff coach the kids. Too many signs out there point that our coaches defang our SoFla kids. It's "play our way, or the highway" - no "freelancing". If you want to know why they are not aggressively attacking on D, it's the law these days. That's why I attribute most of the deficiencies on D to DNo.

J'Ville Cane

What are the Pros and Cons of Al Leaving or Staying??

Cons
1. All of the work put in the fear the tie campaign is for not

2. May lose 3 or 4 guys who seem really commited to Al and not the program. (but I'm sure these Golden fans will make this number be 15-16 recruits that will leave)

3. No more excuse bingo during post game pressers after a lost

4. Halt to the statue building being done by some of these Al Golden fans.

Pros
1.D' No is out the door

2.Fear the tie campaign and Utough is gone (neither has ever produced a championship at any level of football NONE ZERO ZILCH)

3.300 page binder to a .500 record is gone (see #2)

4.With a good hire could possibly gain 3 or 4 recruits who want to play at Miami instead of Penn St south (I'm sure AQM is thinking I came to Miami to play for that team I watched on 30 for 30, if I wanted to play for Penn St I would've just stayed in up north)

5. Will get a chance to see our safties on the television screen instead of having to see them only during the blimp shots

6. See some emotion from the kids and an occasional celebration penalty or two or three

7. No more finishing #116 on defense.

8. Chance for the best players to play and not allow the weight room numbers to dictate a depth chart.

I could carry on but I have work to do......

VA Cane

I really don't think AG is leaving...he is a good man, a good coach.....but he has not proven that he can revive a program....Temple he did good job but....this is a major program on life support when he came. He got us off oxygen but we are still in critical. He is NOT qualified to go to PSU or TX or any other program yet....needs to do it here....a once proud now fallen program. The record is deceiving and without some breaks we were in a position to make, we are worse and do not go to a bowl and get blitzed. I don't see firing him as a answer; if we had an AD who had some fire and balls he would point out what needs to happen. The nepotism got to stop. Maybe AG and Dno are Siamese twins separated at birth don't know....but either he gets that cream puff puss Deion Sanders no tackle D scheme out and puts in a nuclear assassin cripple your playmakers break your neck hitting scheme in or he Dno goes. Same on O we got lame and were kings of 3 and out...linemen stumbling and bumbling like drunk bears....dammit attack people with the run and pass.....run them out of the stadium and keep chasing. Stop reading books about nice warm fuzzy Obama like ideas and read Lombardi Buddy Ryan Tatum philosophy about pain punishment and destruction. He is organized but has to stop being a nice guy. Drive those dogs to exhaustion during the week, make em work learn sweat learn some real fundamental football....teach tnem it is not me dammit it is team. Al needs to step his game up to play with the big boys...stop making every excuse under the sun, go after the good players like you are and put in O and D schemes that will make people fear you, cower at your name and want off the schedule. Dual Armed Dealers of Death and Destruction....that's what we say in my program....go Al go Canes...turn that little passive u tough into a monster bent on infliction of pain....U TOUGH U PAIN U DIE!!!!!

We are weak and meek...in our hitting, fundamentals and overall philosopy its like playing for a liberal..or Obama....I want to be strong physical full of hate rage and anger in my perfect hitting fundamentals and philosophy...like playing for Vince, Buddy Ryan, with Jack Tatum.....or playing for me.....this is all about imposing your will on others with anger rage and without mercy....you can shake their hand and be nice after the game....I guess I need to write the Apocalypse Now article soon Soup...if I write it will you do the graphics?

And the unofficial ranking of the class really doesn't matter at this point, we know it's a very good class, not necessarily elite but solid nonetheless. I'm not hoping Golden leaves at all. But this isn't even as big as Bielema leaving Wisconson for Arkansas if it does happen.

RCCF..No, he does make sense with a lot of things, I will give him that. I loved his article about guns in Liberty City and how it is every day life, but the nation only worries about guns when a school gets shot up. But the same school that fired RS gave him an opportunity to coach at a high level.

so its racist to point out that daU has only had one Black coach in a predominately black cultured area with kids who grow up playing for black coaches but if someone makes light of the fact that the one coach that was black and given a chance was handcuffed he is racist...SHUT UP PEOPLE.. that my friends is Stupid.. The man spoke his mind and nothing else level the labels at 3M..

Why would that matter? The answer is it doesn't b/c like any job, you hire the best quality person for the job not based on skin color but on qualifications. And just b/c you fire someone who sucked and he happened to be black, that's the breaks. I mean, 6 coaches just got fired in the NFL last week and they were all white and Mack Brown just got fired from Texas who was white but are you going to see white people in these areas talking racial crap like Campbell does about Miami? No!! Campbell is a racist, plain and simple. You not acknowledging that is just stupid.

Look, nobody (except maybe Luke) thinks that Randy was fired in an instance of active racial discrimination. Nobody said, "we need to fire the n-----."

But Randy made a lot of folks uncomfortable in ways other than the losing. (As has been pointed out here, Randy's best season and Al's best season are currently tied at 9-4.) The U replaced Randy with a guy that makes boosters, trustees, and the media more comfortable.

Part of that added comfort is that Al does not have any retained characteristics of a 'hood upbringing. This kind of behavior, where people favor other people who don't make them uncomfortable because they act "correctly," is to some extent unconsciously racist.

Luke, being Luke, makes this into a really, really big deal. All I will say about that is this: there are people who wield such clear moral authority, when they say something I disagree with deeply, I feel compelled to re-examine my prior beliefs. Luke is not one of those people.
