AG isn't going anywhere. The administration has 3 requirements of the head football coach:
1) Do not embarrass the university (ie Shapiro)
2) Graduate Players
3) Go to bowl games

AG is doing what the university requires of him. He will not be fired.

LQ

Nice try MD but coley was just a offensive asst.

mi@mic@ne

If you want to win you know whats got to be done ..its the writing on the wall

mi@mic@ne

its an irony that Coker has built a better football team

Atl_canefan

Golden is good man, but a terrible coach. In the end, we get what we pay for. It's Shalala's circus.

nemo2002

It's déjà U all over again.

SinisterCane

Career Record: 9 Years, 58-54, .520 Pct

AfriCane

Fire the coaches. Fire Golden. They suck!

mi@mic@ne

lol

Sarasota 'cane

We got this

Best sarcasm post of the night!

raizecane

Coley went to FIU instead...make you wonder.

Posted by: MDCane | September 01, 2014 at 11:34 PM

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

And FSU got much better when he left.........

SinisterCane

We got this

MDCane

Did anyone noticed when Saban left the Dolphins the only coach that didn't go with him was Coley. Coley went to FIU instead...make you wonder.

AfriCane

D'nofrio squad were good. The O just put them out there too long.

dj moonbat

So, OK:

- Did L-ville have dominating talent? I'm gonna say no.
- Did L-ville play mistake-free football? Again, no.
- Did L-ville have an incredible home-field advantage? Nah.

And we lost by 18 points.

Sarasota 'cane

It's not too soon to begin talking about a coaching change. If Donna was a boss she would have fired Al the minute the PSU rumors surfaced. Certainly after Butch showed some interest.

mi@mic@ne

I dont know which is worse getting beat by Duke or losing tonight. They should have all been fired after the duke loss/

86Cane

Golden is tarnihed?

The Dude

How many losses will it take to get this guy fired?

nemo2002

Out coached
Out played
Out of contention . . .
Again.

AeroCane

We wait all effing year for this and we get this crap. If we kept the teams the same and switched coaching staffs the canes would have won. The fans and the players have no confidence in golden more the coaching staff. Just pitiful!
Cut our losses and get rid of the entire staff. With our talent and no sanctions to speak of, we could pull a good coach - heck bring jimmy back as interim.

mi@mic@ne

I agree we are not tough ...in the fourth q it was embarrassing to watch them pound it down our throats. We need to hit more in practice.

SinisterCane

Butch is laughing right now

dj moonbat

How do we keep him as only head recruiter and get another OC?

Posted by: CaneWarrior | September 01, 2014 at 11:27 PM


Make him the QBs coach, and Associate Head Coach (or whatever won't make it sound as much like a demotion).

Habane

Recruits are watching...they have choices....tic toc

Used car salesman going to load it up heavy...making millions of dollars and has no business as a hc....

Should take his D scheme and head back to Jersey

Sarasota 'cane

Let me rephrase:

Yeah, Butch Davis talk...

Can't wait to hear what the "Giant Douche and the Turd Sandwich" have to say about this abortion.

You can no longer defend the indefensible!!

longtimecanfan

I'm out....tks spacers...

LQ

KC should be the starting RT or I dont know what he didnt do in practice to lose to the 2nd coming of Matt Pipho. Yes we are greatly missing Linder and Seantrel. I wouldnt even call Coleys offense conservative.. its just god awful

Mountain Cane

Horrible in just about every dimension.

To be fair, defense probably a bit better overall.

Offense poor, especially the O line which was simply awful.

Special teams anything but special.

360Cane

We did score 4 more points on them and held them to 5 fewer points so it is improvement.

SinisterCane

OGV was right after all

BEERicane

We are UCLA waiting for the right staff. UCLA seems to have figured it out. Hope we do too.

longtimecanfan

to be simple...we were schooled by Petrino and his staff....

CaneWarrior

Agree with: Kehoe has a lot more work to do but the OC is totally lost! Now we know why Jimbo did not allow him to call plays.
How do we keep him as only head recruiter and get another OC?

dj moonbat

there is good news....... we didn't give up 500 yards of offense.

Posted by: raizecane | September 01, 2014 at 11:19 PM


Not even 400! Plus two turnovers and several sacks. They're coming along -- not as fast as one would like, but they're coming along.

But the offense continues to regress. And Kaaya did not strike me as being markedly worse tonight than Morris last season. Coley's playcalling is just bad. And sometimes, we couldn't evaluate the play call, because the offensive line executed so poorly, we couldn't even figure out what the play was intended to do.

LQ

just sad... just a flat out awful game

nemo2002

"All that we're saaaaying is GIVE HEAPS A CHANCE."

hazydavy

Bring back Thug U.
I dont want to hear its 1st game.
We are too soft.
I do not see how this is a top recruiting class.
Coaching stunk too. Horrible play calls and L's botched plays helped us stay in it for first-half. This was over after the 1/4.
I am sick of the same old U every year.
Let me guess...Al is going to say the same old speech tonight and this week...same old song and dance. AL, I DONT WANT HEAR IT....I want you to say we STUCK and you are pissed and going to do something about it. NOW!!!!
If not...Donna...I hate to say it...but pull the cord on this guy and start over AGAIN.

The Dude

I'm out, let me know when we fire this bum.

longtimecanfan

Penn St getting even with us for the beating Dorsey gave them.....

they let us keep AG...

dg

Oh well, same Golden BS...see you guys when he is gone!

The Dude

Posted by: LQ | September 01, 2014 at 11:21 PM

Al Golden isnt a good coach man. He gets out-coached by everyone except Will Muschamp.

Jay

Would we lose to Coker at UTSA?

mi@mic@ne

There are a lot of good cane coaches without jobs now.

86Cane

697

longtimecanfan

I waited all day for this

Posted by: SinisterCane | September 01, 2014 at 11:23 PM

been waiting since the bowl game...same result

SinisterCane

Penn St fucked us by not hiring Al

SinisterCane

I waited all day for this

AfriCane

lucky for Penn State.

The Dude

Its time to make a football decision.

KYcane

Out Coached...out played...

just another game

Posted by: longtimecanfan | September 01, 2014 at 11:19 PM

Yep

longtimecanfan

well...it ends as it should....

start the AG countdown clock tomorrow morning...

The Dude

Embarrassing.

LQ

I just dont understand how we have had this much time to practice and prepare and just like that . 31-13... man

Canesfan4life

Shannon was someone you wanted to root for, the same for Golden, but we have sucked for too long. The D played better, of course they we helped by wide open drops or bad third down passes. I wish we could cut bait with Golden now.

The Dude

Let's see if this recruiting class stays together also.

longtimecanfan

ville is not even that good

Posted by: NigerianCane | September 01, 2014 at 11:19 PM

there IT is right there

AfriCane

how did they pick kaya though. he gets frazzled. hes throwing wobbly passes.

The Dude

Now I wonder if the Canes will quit on Al? He's been preaching his failing philosophy for forever now.

LQ

Kaaya loves Waters doesnt he LOL

raizecane

there is good news....... we didn't give up 500 yards of offense.

longtimecanfan

Out Coached...out played...

just another game

gatorkillercane

D certainly not great but played well enough to win.

Special teams poor, especially the punter. Inexcusably bad kick off coverage.

Kayaa ok, with a performance about like one might reasonably expect.

Coley is an awful play caller. Manages to almost always get it wrong which is difficult. No feel whatsoever on when to run, pass short, pass long.

And the biggest problem --the O line. Grade at F. Horrible pass protection. Few run holes. The holes that were created were on the inexperienced right side. Hate to say it, but this supposed strength again is poor. May be time for Kehoe to retire.

AfriCane

ville is not even that good

86Cane

Golden must go?

The Dude

Now we start throwing, lol.

1mg of epi

Is anybody really surprised at this result? Probably not. How many of us are starting to feel a sense of apathy creeping in? Probably quite a few.

CaneRock

Ya'll miss Seantrel yet...LMAO!

raizecane

where are the folks who said we have the best WR' corp in the nation? Not saying we don't but if we continue to play like we did tonight, we could have jerry rice, andre johnson, and the playmaker and it wont make a difference.

Jay

Golden is the guy you want to like. But the results are starting to speak a lot louder than any of the coach speak we'll hear in about 30 minutes

Posted by: j.w. | September 01, 2014 at 11:16 PM

Agreed!

Canesfan4life

Fire the tie

The Dude

Posted by: 86Cane | September 01, 2014 at 11:15 PM

We may actually be worse?

j.w.

86Cane

So we still suck right?

The Dude

Posted by: dj moonbat | September 01, 2014 at 11:12 PM

Amen!

MDCane

Guess I'll cancel my cable subscription tomorrow until next season.

LQ

welp boys. im with them when they are up im with them when they are down. Brad didnt look horrible. shook because of the shaky line protection.

The Dude

Al Golden is what 22-16 now at The U?

Terrance Sullivan

Smdh

mi@mic@ne

Im not surprised been watching this stuff to long to be fooled

j.w.

Reason number. 10,999,999 why preseason hype is almost always b.s. Crawford isn't very good at safety.

dj moonbat

What happened tonight is Not OK. I understand some people out there feel the need to protect Al from unreasonable criticism. But it's not unreasonable to say that this was not an acceptable outcome.

Louisville was exploitable. Not bad, by any means, but hardly playing perfect football. I can point to a couple times where the defense actually did exploit Louisville's weaknesses. Not nearly enough, but it DID happen.

But on offense, that Walford deep ball was the only play I can think of that effectively capitalized on what Louisville was doing.

I'm tired of being told that we need to wait until the recruiting has us on a par with a low-end NFL team before we can expect to keep these kinds of games CLOSE, much less win them.

Disgraceful. If Al has any sense of shame he'll admit that.

Montreal-Cane

US open on.

longtimecanfan

a blow out loss again..

BEERicane

Im just sad man... No reason why kaaya should struggle when you have the wrs you do at the U.

Coley blew the game.

Posted by: UpNorthCane | September 01, 2014 at 11:09 PM

I forgot we had any WRs on the field watching this game.

The Dude

And its a blow out folks! Thanks Al!

MDCane

Fire the entire staff and start over. We looked no better than year one.

The Dude

I also saw a lot of effort from Chick.

The Dude

Posted by: CaneRock | September 01, 2014 at 11:09 PM

Cant really blame the DBs for how soft they have to play also.

longtimecanfan

it's gonna be fun tomorrow, anybody seen OGV?

Posted by: SinisterCane | September 01, 2014 at 11:09 PM

i an only imagine...

Montreal-Cane


ESPN calling it...too many good recruits to not be winning at the U.... the clock starts to tick tonight...

Posted by: longtimecanfan | September 01, 2014 at 11:02 PM

Yes sir!

BEERicane

Louisville is not very good.

SinisterCane

it's gonna be fun tomorrow, anybody seen OGV?

UpNorthCane27

Im just sad man... No reason why kaaya should struggle when you have the wrs you do at the U.

Coley blew the game.

CaneRock


Which good players? Besides DP, who showed up to play tonight?

Posted by: Jay | September 01, 2014 at 11:07 PM

OP...Olsen Pierre.

USAFCane

D played pretty well. Feel sorry for these kids, they are a poorly coached group. Can't put this on a freshman QB but he has looked very bad at times. Another long season ahead us. I'd keep D'No ahead of Coley.

longtimecanfan

FWIW I called the season 8-4 at best...

wish I was wrong, but had this one as a loss all the way.

Sarasota 'cane

if we lose that one the vultures will begin to circle...

Posted by: longtimecanfan | September 01, 2014 at 11:06 PM

They are already circling, with pitchforks and an "agenda"!

Grrrrrrrrrr 'canes!!

The Dude

This is going to be another blow out under Golden.

Canezitis

Al's decision to start Kaaya now screams to me that he feels no heat from this administration. The boy is obviously not ready yet. I think he'll be good under a better OC in time but this was too much too soon for this young man. Heaps can't be THAT bad, right? Sorry to be negative, but I'm tired of watching this show- the ending sucks every time against good competition.
