Zero faith in No'D UMike? K, what's your faith in Al Golden to rectify the situation at the end of the season?

Posted by: The Dude | July 14, 2014 at 03:34 PM

I'm no sure, I thought it was very obvious D'No needed to be let go after last season. If the D is bad again I think Golden HAS to part ways if he wants to keep building. However, Im not totally convinced Golden would. He already has a youth factor excuse ready to go and I think if there is even a SLIGHT improvement (but still bad) he will keep him.

I like Golden, I think he is doing great things, however when he didnt fire D'No it made me at least question if he is he right guy.

Jack Allison (2016 QB commit) 247 update

Miami’s 2016 recruiting class is on a roll and the commitment of Palmetto quarterback Jack Allison probably had something to do with it. Allison (6-5, 185) ended the process early on June 23rd when he notified Cane coaches that he would be headed in their direction.

-Says “I knew Miami was the perfect place and I realized right there that I was done,” “It felt so right and I knew I was going to commit there sometime anyway. I figured why hold myself back from being where I want to be?”

-Says “When I went there for the first camp, I got a good feeling, but the second time made it for sure,” “Meeting Coach Coley, I saw how good of a dude he is and he’s somebody I want to play for. Coach Golden is awesome too, I got a chance to sit down in his office. We talked and I really liked what he had to say. Of course the tradition of the ‘U’ is amazing and I wanted to be a part of that.”

-turned down other offers from Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, South Florida, and UCF. He’s happy having his mind made up and there’s no way it will change later.

-Says “It was nice to get it off my mind and focus on just football and Miami,” “Now I won’t be getting pulled out of class to talk with all these coaches who come by. It wouldn’t even matter because I’m a Miami guy, a million dollars couldn’t take me away at this point.”

-Allison is already joined by five future teammates, three of whom are talented pass catches from prominent programs in South Florida.

-Says “I’m really excited about our class, the best part is it’s mostly wide receivers,” Allison laughed. “Sam Bruce, Dionte Mullins, (Dredrick) Snelson, those guys are straight studs. I hit them all up on Twitter and I talked to Sam once or twice. I’ve never met any of them before but I can’t wait to get down with them. I bet they were there at the camp when I was but I didn’t know who they were at the time.”

explained what Miami will be getting in him despite not being a finished product with two high school seasons left to play.

-Says “I’m a winner, I’m not going to lose games without doing everything it takes,” “I don’t even want to be labeled as a pro-style quarterback, just as somebody who gets it done. Now I could bring a little more speed to the table, I’m trying to get my 40 time down from a 4.9. I’m shooting for a 4.2 but I’m not sure if that can happen. In all seriousness, I’m working hard on improving my mobility.”

I saw on Twitter someone joked that after Allison's comment..

“ a million dollars couldn’t take me away at this point.”

SEC: "challenge accepted"

Thought that was funny lol

Jeremiah Ledbetter Rivals update

Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College DE Jeremiah Ledbetter has the Hurricanes in his top three. The other two programs he's serious about: Florida and Arkansas.

-Says "They're even, are in no particular order,"

-announce a final decision this fall, and he'll take official visits to UM and UF - he's already taken his official to Arkansas.

-Why are those his finalists? Says- "Just the opportunities they gave to me, the academics, me being able to come in right away and play,"

-Says (On Canes) "The coaches are good, the facilities are nice, I like the atmosphere there and the area - Miami is just good. Overall it's good."

-Coach Jethro Franklin is recruiting him to Miami.

-Says "He's a good guy, is very knowledgeable of the D line, knows what he's talking about," "He talks about where I can fit into Miami's different defenses they run."

-teammate, Claude George, is a Cane commitment.

-Says (On Impact) "We're very close," "But the influence, it's neutral because at the end of the day I'm my own person. But there is a little bit of an impact."

U still don't get it. Take the target OFF of D'No because Golden would have to fire himself first. Not gonna happen.

UMike

SOUP.. you get my pics?

IMO, Riley does bear some culpability in Lebron leaving. The thing that keeps sticking out to me, is this "He underestimated the influence of James' advisers" that I kept hearing. Seriously, who did He think Rich Paul was?...what agent doesn't have influence over their client?

I hope Riley didn't look at Lebron's people, and think..."OK, those are the cats He runs the streets with, but when He's with me, it's business." I've been reading up on Rich Paul, that young fellas making some REAL moves.

UMike

I think the move was ALL Lebron and his feelings. I think if Miami 3-Peats MAYBE he stays...He was just married, his wife is from the same area etc, I can understand why he went back. The statement that "Northeast Ohio is bigger than basketball" says A LOT about the move and his intentions. Besides.. all he has to do is win 1 title in Cleveland, just 1 and he will be a God forever there and him never getting 6 wont hurt his legacy as much.

Go Canes

LeBron made an emotional decision that's going to cost him at least 2 more titles.

UMike

But since he went back, and they way in which he did, he is only chasing 1 title now instead of chasing 6. I would really love to see a healthier Wade come back strong next year just to shut people up.

CaneRock

Posted by: UMike | July 15, 2014 at 08:32 AM

So does He have another excuse, if the Browns or Indians win a championship before Him? LMAO! BTW, the Indians are only 6.5 back in the AL Central...

UMike

CR.. just saying.. if he wins 1 title there his legacy is cemented. I dont think he has an excuse, but he definitely turned the tables on how his legacy will be defined.. at least imo

UpNorthCane27

Whats going on fellas!!

Sad to hear that a former UM volleyball player Nrithya Sundararaman passed away at the young age of 22. Does anyone know what illness took her life?

Anyways godbless her family who have to be going through a difficult time.

UMike

UpNorth... theres a rumor going around Da Space that you will be in ATL for the GT game..what you say about it? lol

UpNorthCane27

I will not confirm nor deny these rumors but just know Umike where there's smoke usually that means something is up. Lol

Whats going on bro? how's that job offer looking for the Community center you interviewed for?

Word is our boy SOUP is already the real estate King down in Florida. Soup flipping them cribs

UMike

I have a second interview Friday with the President and CEO of the center. I have a stack of letters of recommendations from parents of kids ive coached, hope that helps.

UpNorthCane27

Im sure that will man shows your direct involvement and leadership with the youngins!!

Keep you in my prayers homie, know you'll get the job.

UMike

I definitely appreciate it. When I first interview it was last Monday and the lady said "we will let you know by the end of the week or early next week if we want you back for a second interview"... well she called me back the next day. I hope that is a good sign.

UMike

I've also done research about the President of the center and the work he has done so I can be a little knowledgeable and can praise his work etc

UpNorthCane27

Def will help out to know about the president and work he has done. The job is it a mentorship type position for at risk youth?

Go Canes

Coley on fire on twitter today.

Guy is are recruiting beast.

Go Canes

UMike

Go Canes.. he is taking the Twitter thing to another level and I think the kids like it.

UpNorth... I will be working with at risk teens doing multiple things like activities, mentorship, taking them to counseling etc... whatever they need me to do. There is a small group of teen boys at this center that have been removed from their home for a variety of reasons.

Go Canes

UMike feel very good about your chances.

As someone who is hired and fired a lot of people in my life, I can tell you the number one thing I look for in a potential employee is desire and passion for the job they're looking for. You obviously have that, plus a lifetime of experience that will help the kind of kids you'll be working with.

VA Cane

Good luck UMike I think your coaching and insight with young people will be a great asset and strong foundation. You are one of us and we all will have our prayers in for you. I think you will get it!!!!

UMike

Go Canes.. I appreciate that. I made sure to tell them on my first interview the passion I had for making an impact on young peoples lives. I told them they may have candidates with a better education or credentials, but none with the passion I have or that can relate to these kids the way I can.

UMike

Thanks VA.. much appreciated!

The lady asked me if I would be intimidated because some kids have records... I was like "not one bit, I use to be that kid. I have no fear of that at all".. I think that made an impression on her and I bet other candidates might be hesitant knowing that.

j.w.

UMike, great news! Best of luck.

VA Cane

You will do fine, be you like you always are. We all are pulling for you!!!!!

Sounds familiar. Their D was as bad as ours.

I know a lot of people don't like McFadden but he did go to Oregon and put on a good show, got selected to the all opening team.
he's ranked high in every website.

Does he just project better as a safety or is he overrated and just lucky?

Ohio_Cane

I'm only a fan of T McFadden when he's in gym shorts or 1 on 1 with a good receiver. Not a fan of anything else. When he gets in a game situation with more than one assignment (cover xxxxx WR), he's very average.

CaneRock

I think McFadden is a product of the system at AH...seems like they do quite a bit of blitzing.

CaneRock

SMDH! Dre @$$ got over...why didn't I think of that $h!t LMAO!

The New York Times reports that Dr. Dre’s Beats by Dre headphones are inexpensive to make, with headphone designers estimating “the cost of making a fancy headset is as low as $14.” A pair of Beats by Dre can cost upwards of $450, however the quality of the headphones has always been a concern. TIME Magazine ranked Beats by Dre as the second to worst headphone brand out of 18 in terms of sound performance last month.

JW...I know, I just never understood this craze with BBD. I have a friend of mines that works at Super Target, and He says Bose can't even see the light of day with BBD on the shelves.

******************************

I traded in my beats (which i had before they were cool to have) for some klipsch and have not looked back....

Montreal-Cane

The Miami defense requires a vastly improved front seven, and the (necessary, if charges are true) dismissals of Alex Figueroa and JaWand Blue complicated the picture. Presently, the linebacker position is a glaring weakness.

Behind Denzel Perryman and Thurston Armbrister, Raphael Kirby and Jermaine Grace are the two top linebackers. However, neither has played an overwhelming amount of meaningful snaps, and "trial by fire" is an adequate way to describe the first month for the duo.

Juwon Young moves into Blue's vacated backup position, forcing the true freshman into a role for which he might be ready at best. Even Terry McCray could be given some garbage-time reps at inside linebacker, keeping him from a redshirt season.

Unless Tyriq McCord rapidly becomes more than an edge-rusher, another first-year player in Darrion Owens is a second-string 'backer.

But other than Perryman and maybe Armbrister, are they actually ready? Kirby has averaged 1.3 tackles per game in 20 appearances, Grace was essentially a special teams contributor in 2013, and the others are new to college ball.

Golden will address this issue in some manner, but he'll probably manage to coach-speak around the situation.
