So 1 and only 1 media outlet, Canesport.com , is reporting Penn State has offered Golden the job and Golden "likely will take it."

Posted by: SOUP | January 03, 2014 at 10:04 PM


Also, 0 media outlets have reported any denials from Golden or Penn State.

Stanadrd Shriver

James Franklin is not coming to Miami. I know personally he is sick of begging the fanbase to come out and support the team. Franklin feeds off the energy that surrounds him.....he would kill himself if he coached at Sun Life.

May be reason for Al's silence...

-----------------------------------------

Bosa's are legends at OSU. Whole family went there/will go there.

herbieibis

The Herb says this, let the Golden one book, especially, if he is unwilling to fire DENO and this is probably a deciding factor if he takes the Penn St. job. He was probably told to get rid of his Bro and he got pissed off and is interviewing. The problem, his wife loves Florida.
No way this team goes anywhere with that Moron Deno calling the Dee signals. The Herb gave this zero a break the first 2 years because of suspensions, youth and general lack of depth but this year with so many guys back and not having any significant injuries, we still sucked, that was it for me. I'm not in to getting embarrassed and humiliated over & over. Any dam good coached would of done fired his ass after the Va. tech or Duke games.
We had enough talent to go at least 10-3 or 11-2. Al, who is a good recruiter, just basically said "F" the DT position for 3 years and now all of the sudden he wants to bring in 5 or 6 guys, where was this love the last couple of years?
I'll tell you why Coley was hired, it was more for his ability to recruit more so than his X's & O'S. Aside from him we have average recruiters and they are not closers.
Getting 1 out of every 5 stud recruits from the S. Flo. area doesn't get it either. The top WR's all avoided us. Sony & Cook shunned us and Collins last year. I've never understood why we don't recruit the lower part of Georgia & S.E. Louisiana more, instead of New Jersey.
We need to change to the spread option and get these kids in Flo. excited about playing for the "U". We have no identity on offense and none on defense, why would I get excited about coming here.
If Al were to leave, yes we are going to lose some big recruits and thus here comes the toilet again. We don't need to hire anybody for no National coaches hunt. Four names and it doesn't matter in what order;
Davis
Schiano
Morris (Clemson)
Narduzzi

Davis, is a master evaluator of talent but at 62 he may not stay long.
Schiano is younger and also a good recruiter.
the other 2 are both untested as head coaches, one being offense & the other being defense.
Davis would be it for me because he could assemble an elite coaching staff, quickly.
How neat would it be to have him, Schiano as D-C, Orgeron D-L, Johnson-WR, Keough O-L,
Soldinger RB, Barrow or Lewis LB, Gary Stevens as QB coach, & Chud as O-C. Sounds dam good.

Montreal-Cane

Love the speed and offense of Clemson.

Sammy Watkins another Florida player we didn't get.

Maybe we can squeeze into the new soccer stadium David Beckham is trying to build by parrot jungle...location would be amazing!!! Lots of Canes students living on the area also (brickell, Edgewater, midtown, etc)...

I'd like Allen Hurns to go to the Colts. O'Donnell can punt anywhere. Linder to New England and Henderson to the 49ers. Good fits for those guys. Hopefully OT can get an undrafted FA spot. He's a good kid.

CaneLaw2001

I'm over it... Bring back Butch... He wants to rebuild his reputation and legacy, which is the same thing the program wants... He doesn't need money... Would be a match made in Canes heaven...

Butch will get us recruits... Butch will get us a title!!!

Golden aside...Mark May and Lou Holtz were right, the elephant in the room is NOT! Golden, it's Donna Shalala, and Her willingness (or lack thereof), to get the ball rolling foran ON CAMPUS STADIUM!

I know the BUC is a smaller footprint, but it's a PHUCKIN'! joke that the basketball program, with it's lack of a winning tradition, got a venue before the football team!

All that pride the football program brought to The City Of Miami, and we have to travel 30 miles to play football?!

Posted by: CaneRock | January 03, 2014 at 08:19 PM
Canerock, I would love to have an on-campus stadium, have my issues with Shalala as well (and I am an alum), but this particular topic has been discussed a billion times. The City of Coral Gables will not ever allow us to build an on-campus stadium, it has nothing to do with Shalala. It is Never. Going. To. Happen.
The better approach is to build something closer to campus, but that isn't easy either. Some day, maybe the City of South Miami will let us build something within walking distance to the campus, but I recall hearing there were local politics that were preventing that as well. Tropical Park is another oft-discussed area, but like everything else, it's going to require some money and something tells me that unless Burger King suddenly starts kicking MCDonalds' ass there aren't a whole lot of opportunities for corporate $$.

Fair enough. Agree with it in principle. But how would traffic ever get in our out of the football stadium. US1, bird road, Red Road, Ponce could not handle it. It's a logistical NIGHTMARE without the infrastructure to deal with the traffic. Forget about parking....

LMFAO! Post of the night!

Dude on a Pale Horse

So I was trying to find out if money would be an issue for Butch. Here's the numbers I found. Golden's last raise brought him up from 2.14 mil a year to an undisclosed amount. Butch was making 2.7 mil at UNC. That's what I could find from my cell phone.

Last time Braxton miller played in MIAMI canes kicked his butt.

Report: JON GRUDEN offered MIAMI job, expected to take it

Posted by John Taylor on January 3, 2014, 4:59 PM EST

JON GRUDEN
AP

Well, that certainly escalated quickly.

Mere minutes after it was reported by various media outlets that JON GRUDEN would be one of at least two FBS coaches who would interview for the MIAMI vacancy, CaneSport.com is reporting that GRUDEN has been offered the head-coaching job with the HURRICANES. More importantly if you’re a fan of either program, GRUDEN is expected to accept the offer, the Rivals.com website reported.

The site wrote that “GRUDEN'S representatives were working out the final details with MIAMI on Friday afternoon.” According to previous reports, GRUDEN and MIAMI were set to meet about the HURRICANES vacancy at some point today.

There has been no official word from any parties involved regarding this development.

We may be disappointed in hisresults on the field, but Al Golden understands the game called recruitung as good as anybody out there. And he has reminded us time and again how toxic it is to have rumours out there in the final weeks before signing day.
Other than the NCAA saga, he could have shot down those in an instant. He chose not to - a clear indication he is on his way out.

“Miami officials were laying the groundwork for a coaching search Friday while awaiting final word from Golden on his decision,” CaneSport.com wrote in lieu of official word from The U side.

Golden, who recently completed his third season with the Hurricanes, played his college football for the Nittany Lions and was on Joe Paterno‘s staff in 2000 as a linebackers coach. Following Paterno’s firing in November

this post peaked my interest. can u elaborate a little more on this? how does racism really work?

Posted by: 30CINCO | January 03, 2014 at 06:34 PM


Racism is the belief -- explicit or implicit -- that there is a hierarchy of races, and that society should be organized to favor one over the others.

In America, racism is primarily white supremacy. Although white supremacists favor whites (and especially white protestants) over all other races and ethnicities, America's institutional racism has always pushed blacks down the hardest.

So, it is not racist for a black man to be angry at white people, and to take another black person's side in a societal dispute for no other reason than racial solidarity. For white people to engage in racial solidarity against other races, however, IS.

It might not be very forgiving, and it might be a self-defeating response to racism past and present. But American racism is about keeping blacks down, and whites up. Regardless of Luke's problematic stances (and they are many), he is not being a racist when he takes Randy's side of things, even if he's doing it just because Randy's black.

RCCF

TRAGIC!!!

You certainly are correct about the business world, RCCF. However, in the academic arena it is perfectly accepted practice to shop jobs if approached.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Longtime,

Nor do I. I assume its not forbidden by the NCAA. Maybe one of our really smart NCAA rules bloggers could tell us. Ohio_Cane always seems to know these kinds of things. The reason I asked that is because I've been preaching that's what Miami should have been doing since before the bowl game.

Dude on a Pale Horse

You may be right, your certainly entitled to your opinion that he was close. I don't see it though.

Longtime, are you suggesting that a university may have made some phone calls behind closed doors?

Canefantasy

I believe that sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Miami could go with an up and comer in the WAC or AAC or Big East. However, I believe its time to take out the checkbook and spend money on a coach that can bring in the revenue. We all know that when Miami is hot that stadium is sold out! We just havent been hot in a quick minute.

here is my list of possibilities from a financial situation
1. Mike Leach
2. Rod Carey - Northern Illinois
3. Tim DeRuyter - fresno state
4. Ed Oregon
5. Lane kiffin - He will be cheap with little success.
6. Tommy Tubberville

From a smart standpoint
1. Charlie Strong - Recruits our area heavily and would help us keep recruits and have one heck of a defense. Problem is he would be expensive. I believe if Florida has another bad year he would go there.
2. All former hurricane connections - Dorsey(they did it at texas tech and it worked), Butch, Chud, Schiano, ect. Its just exciting but probably not likely.
3. Gruden is always mentioned in every job opening so add him to the list.
4. All former players - Reed, Lewis, Bernie.. haha
5. James Coley - why not! everybody likes him and would help with recruiting which we all know is important!

O'Brien was rumored to the Texans a while back...maybe PSU had the plan moving long before we knew it....

RCCF

No it would've still been too early I felt like the firing of Randy came at the uprise of his Coaching.. The Coach who hated him was gone.. He was most likely gonna retool Idk this is all just hogposh now but I just felt it was too early..

AfriCane


Nigeriancane...you have obviously never been recruited on any level, either with sports or in business. When a big name job comes seeking you out for an interview, even if you will likely not take it you hear them out. Even if it is a courtesy. You don't do that for a slapd*ck job, but for a big name job you grant the interview. Nothing wrong with seeing your options and staying put (exception is your marriage lol). I'm not mad at Golden for listening. Not even mad if he leaves.

Posted by: RARA | January 03, 2014 at 06:00 PM

that is a general rule that refers to pedestrian situations. some jobs r too big, some situations r too top level to where a whisper makes a big impact. Miami is such a job. the intent behind the intent that leads to talking to another organization about another job is powerful enough. when speculation hit about saban to texas, saban shot it down. he didn't wait to talk to texas 1st. he couldn't mess with a program as big as 'bama. the U is such a program.

The Dude

RCCF, it was only too early because they hired Golden. Had they hired Gruden like they thought, and Miami was dominating, its a different story.

RCCF

sidebar: I am not implementing the demographics of Miami I have never been..I was simply saying Randy gave 20yrs to daU..They could have done him better BottomLine..Yes he deserved to go but I do think it was still too early.

That Is All..
