Voodoo doll for today says.....

Gillard...CHECK!
Harris....CHECK!
VT....DOUBLE CHECK!

Thats all!

Go Canes

I agree with Soup's post above.

Unless our QB situation becomes a complete train wreck there is no way we win 7-8 games.

9-10 wins is where I expect to be.

SOUP, O_C,

Thanks for the pep talk. Maybe I won't go look for a bridge today afterall.

If only UMike had been a little nicer...

Lurker

There will never be a hot seat for Golden so long as he keeps our nose clean and gets to 7 wins and bowl appearances. No one cares about winning titles anymore at The U.

Shows a total lack of knowledge about UM and the people that run it. This is just plain ignorant.

Have to agree with MOST of that, The Dude… If our admin, board, & A.D. REALLY wanted a NC, D'No would be gone.

What I disagree with is the statement that, "No one cares… "

You've got a whole FAMILY of bloggers here at CaneSpace that are DYING to win another handful of NCs! (Sad part is, WE don't have the authority to fire D'No.)

G'day friends, enjoy the game. Recruiting and the temperature of Golden's seat can wait until tomorrow.

Lurker… our admin, board & A.D. at the U have proven time and time again, they're backing Golden and his roommate/best man, & his BS schemes. They really are more concerned with "...keeping our nose clean and getting to 7 wins and bowl appearances," like The Dude said.
We are the "Harvard of the South" in their opinion, and nobody expects Harvard to win NCs.

Go Canes

How can anyone agree with any part of that statement.

This program comes with a permanent hot seat. We have the most entitled, NC or bust fan base in college football.

You literally have no clue

Go Canes

Roachcane are you being serious?

That can't be a real post.

roachcane77

Have you HEARD the A.D. & board defend AG & his staff, and place all the blame on the sanctions and poor player talent?

If NOT... then YOU sir, have no clue!

roachcane77

I'm not at ALL referring to our fan base, and alumni, (such as myself.) We ALL definitely want multiple NCs!

Just stating facts… the A.D. and board are all about the perception of the U as an Ivy League school. I have heard direct quotes to that effect.

And the lack of accountability for our D to the "coaches." And placing the blame on the sanctions and player talent is also based on STATEMENTS from them in support of the coaches. Where have YOU GUYS BEEN?

Again with the deliberately obtuse reading.

"Fan base" means a lot of people on the Internetz and talk radio, none of whom have any authority to hire or fire coaches.

A coach who is on the 'hot seat' is one who is in danger of being fired. Al Golden is not currently in any danger of being fired, because the people who DO have the authority to hire and fire coaches are fine with what he's been doing.

Go Canes

If all they wanted was seven wins and seven wins, why did they fire Randy?

They were getting both of those things from him weren't they?

Go Canes

Sorry seven wins and a clean program.

roachcane77

All of us HERE care WAY MORE about holding coaches accountable for Ws & Ls than ANYBODY on that end.

As the oft quoted phrase goes… "Actions speak louder than words." But in THIS case, they have actually "spoken the words" saying that it's not our coaching that's the problem.

If they TRULY wanted a NC as MUCH as WE do, do you think they would give D'No their seal of approval?

Like The Dude said, their major concern is "keeping our nose clean."

Bowl games and 7 win seasons will keep Golden and his BFF here a long, long time.

roachcane77

Randy wasn't giving them the "Golden Boy" sound bites that they wanted to represent their "Ivy League" school.

Agree 100%, dj

Go Canes

I can't even believe the things I'm reading.

Everyone enjoy the Super Bowl!

j.w.

Randy was tone deaf, stubborn, refused to do anything to help his own PR or the teams, and didn't have any idea what he was looking for as an OC. He's gone, and regardless of how Golden turns out, he wasn't the answer.
Now onto something a lot more positive- Anyone watching our women's hoop team? Katie Meier is far and away the best coach at UM.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Oh, the fan base cares. Those AT UM, I don't think do, otherwise D'Onofrio would be gone.

Terrance Sullivan

My take is U have to win at least 9 games or more annually and more like 9-11 games annually with winning some Coastal, ACC, and winning the NC at least about every 7-8 years. But Soup take is on point. This is basically the floor analogy.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Let's say this is Golden the next 5 years.

2014: 8-5 Bowl Win
2015: 9-5 ACC CG appearance
2016: 9-4 Bowl Win
2017: 10-3 Bowl appearance
2018: 7-6 Bowl Win

That's totally unacceptable to most U fans. To the admin, I believe they'd be thrilled with those results and no bad press.

SOUP

Maybe we Spacers could use some of this....mistakes happen....sometime things don't turn out....does it MATTER who is right or better? Live and Let Live....Canes fans are CANES!

Posted by: LA3 | February 02, 2014 at 02:02 PM

There IT is right there.

Dude on a Pale Horse

But that's my opinion, and many others. Lurker thinks he knows otherwise but he doesn't. Its anyone's guess in any of this. Go Canes could be right about Golden and Marky. I don't see it, but that doesn't mean he's wrong. We could have fired Mark and hired Groh and would be in the same place right now. Some would be saying bad hire, some great hire. No need to question anyone's intellect Lurker.

Dude on a Pale Horse

SOUP,

Feel free to edit my last post, lol. I'm just sick of people popping up and being @holes. We are all just here, sharing opinions and a little info we may have picked up. New people and those who show up every once in a while don't always understand the personalities of regulars and want to start stuff.

SOUP

Katie Meier is far and away the best coach at UM.

Posted by: j.w. | February 02, 2014 at 03:41 PM

Well her and coach Larranga?

The track coach is also pretty good and women's tennis coach is awesome. No seriously!

SOUP

Dude...U were fine right up until the last sentence. That is the only part I will remove.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Yeah, I know. *slaps wrist*

Dude on a Pale Horse

Who U got tonight SOUP? I like the Broncos. If my Chargers can't win it, I'll take Peyton Manning shoving Jim Irsay's face in it.

UMike

Looks like the Fire agents might if been using Ridley and SBB to drum up interest.. They keep daying "maybe they will announce" today... We will see

UMike

*** saying

UMike

Hey hey... I was nice to TV.. Sure I said I thought he was making excuses for not coming back to Miami, but I have said he is elite and that we need him lol

herbieibis

Well The Herb cares about the win loss record. 7 wins doesn't get it for me. That's excepting being mediocre. We all understand that, that will happen every once in a while, you get caught with your pants down, when to many underclassmen leave early and you didn't recruit some positions hard enough. The conference we play in should afford us the ability to win 9 games consistently but this has not transpired. I like Golden, I just don't think he's got the cods to fire a coach and I get the coaching stability thing, which is something, that's much needed around there. Who knows, with the right talent, maybe DENO could do wonders but The Herb hasn't seen to much improvement. The team as it is at present plus the recruits, is not a ship level contender just yet. If we can ever hit the targets, the much need targets once in a recruiting year, then The Herb can rub his hands together and say " now we're talking, lets get to work". We need the worm to turn for us down the stretch and catch a couple of breaks. No need to mention any names, we know who they are.

Surfercane

TV is Lsu bound. He is from Palm Bay and likes the country life. Plam Bay sucks and so does Lsu!

Dude on a Pale Horse

Nvm SOUP, you had Broncos by 6 I see.

UMike

SBB not annoucing... Them boys got used

Montreal-Cane


According to Shodell of cs he spoke to Valentine's Mom this morning and she told him that he is very confused and will restart reevaluating between the two schools. Right now it's 50% to each school.


Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 02, 2014 at 01:49 PM

We all show some love to TV now and he will play at Miami. The same for Harris.

BigWindyCane1

I hope TV chooses the Canes. If TV, JCJ and another recruit flips to the Canes, I will feel really good about this class.

I hope the Canes coaches give Gray a look at running back or slot receiver because he is really good. I saw Gray play a few times this past season, and he was as good as any local high school player. He broke long runs on Central, MNS, and several other very good defenses. Talent-wise, Gray is as good as any offensive recruit in this class.

Ohio_Cane

@Canespace: Word has it that Florida Fire tryouts faked an announcement from 2 big 2015 prospects to generate media and interest but no announcement? Ha

@FlaHSFootball: @86Cane Yes this actually happened....disgusting to be honest.

She only said that to build SUSPENSE on signing day!

WWIN

Why didn't SBB and Ridley deny the reports?

dj moonbat

It's been a few years since a team has played as well as Seattle is playing in this Super Bowl. Wow.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I'm not a pop music guy, but Bruno Mars just killed it.

WWIN

Why didn't anybody tell me that the Canes was playing the Seahawks today

Dude on a Pale Horse

I can't remember ever seeing a team implode as fast as the Broncos have. This is embarassing. From the safety to the poor blocking and INTs. Let's see if Seattle can step on their throats.

Dude on a Pale Horse

And there it is.
