Keep the scariest movie thang going. I say The Excorcist & original Carrie!

Dude on a Pale Horse

When they rereleased The Exorcist I was in HS. Saw it with my GF and jumped out of my seat when the phone rings. I was on edge bad. Scary movies F with my dreams. I cant watch them.

Okay. What about the "Career High Hybrid Scheme", have you seen that one? It's been scaring me for 3yrs!!

LaQuinton

BREAKING: Per source, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer has demoted offensive coordinator / associate head coach George McDonald. Moving forward, quarterbacks coach Tim Lester will call the plays. Syracuse has lost their last three games and scored just three offensive touchdowns during that stretch. The offense was only able to kick two field goals in Friday night’s 28-6 loss to Louisville. McDonald is in his second year on the staff. He served as the wide receivers coach at the University of Miami in 2011 and 2012, briefly joined Bret Bielema’s staff at Arkansas before landing the coordinator position at Syracuse. Lester served as the head coach at Elmhurst College from 2008-2012 before joining Shafer’s staff. From 2005-2006, Lester coached the quarterbacks at Western Michigan while Shafer was the Broncos defensive coordinator. Remember him ?

It was tough falling asleep after seeing the "Exorcist" for the first time in the movies. Even scarier was the 1932 classic, "Island of Lost Souls", starring Charles Laughton, Bela Lugosi, and an array of real live "freaks". However, neither horror movie was as disturbing (to me) as Saturday night's game at GT. In truth I didn't fall asleep until about 3:30 am, because I just couldn't stop thinking about UM's "Nightmare on Defense III".


WWIN

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Nemo, you too! I keep seeing that old @$$ gold rambling wreck car being drove by that unnamed full back and it wakes me up in cold sweats!

UMike

So GT showed UM stuff they've never seen (like a triple option offense we play against every year), the night road games effected us (cause you know, no other team has those) and Go Canes is STILL saying we are not on a "level playing field"!

Go Canes, I am glad you feel the staff is failing, but why do you STILL make sure to throw in there things like "level playing field" and how the other teams circle us and how we had chances etc... stop trying to give this staff life lines, they will NEVER, EVER get it done.... EVER!

We ARE on a level playing field with the cloud way behind us. We have out-recruited Louisville and GT even with the sanction talk, we have had a defensive system in place 4 years and offense for two, no big coaching changes etc so WE HAVE BEEN ON A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD!!!

It is truly unbelievable how a D1 staff can be so incompetent and still keep their jobs. Seeing in person made it worse for me. Kaaya made some freshman mistakes and the O could of did more, but hard to score a lot of points when you barely have the ball. I cannot believe a University of Miami team could not stop the pitch/option. There were NO DB's, safeties, LB's etc there to string it out... and I wonder why... oh yeah cause they were lined up out of position!! Do any of you follow "caneflexin" on Instagram? he posted a lot of still frame pics from that game and it is just scary. He showed the 2002 OSU game when they had the ball at the two. Miami had 7 guys on he LOS with the DB's and safeties up... he split this shot with a shot of Miami against GT when the ball was on the 1. We had 4 guys on the LOS, the LB's 4-5 yards deep in the end zone and DB's spread wide. This staff is just horrible, mainly Golden/D'No. I dont EVER EVER wanna hear how the scheme is to complicated for players... I can promise you D'No is not that freaking smart.


Thank goodness for good tailgating with good people, makes the pain more bearable.

Go Canes

I'm not saying level playing field, I'm saying whst I feel the administration is thinking.

Texican cane

Don't think Al is reading the space unless he's not being truthful--from Barry. LQ has the cuse coaching change, USA today had story on tcu changing their whole offensive philosophy but after 3.5 years of bad defense, Al still thinks his scheme and his man crush are just fine. Move along nothing to see here, all is well...

# Asked Sunday why UM didn't stack the box more Saturday against Georgia Tech, Al Golden said: "This is the best way to play them in our opinion."... He said nothing to suggest that he believes Miami's schemes need to be changed. Instead, as usual, he blamed "execution" for Miami's inability to stop Georgia Tech from converting on third down... Golden said he wants to keep this loss in perspective, noting that Georgia Tech's point total was fewest it has scored against Miami in three years."... Asked about fan anger, he said: "I don't listen to anything."

KY.. thanks for the compliment about my kids, they are some great kids!!!! Was awesome hanging with you and your group, and thanks for those wings, they were dam good.

The tailgate was great, was like our own little Cane world lol... did anyone else notice how quiet the GT tailgates were? Good food, good music, great view, gorgeous weather and more importantly great people... really had a blast.

Yea it was cool seeing Momma Duke, Feliciano and Kaaya at the game with Dukes and Feliciano's moms hanging a the tailgate.

UMike

SOUP, between TSully, KY, 1982 and myself I think we got a good amount of pics for you. I will try to email some.

Also, for those on Instagram, follow "utailgate" had a lot of great pics from the deck we were on.

UMike

Funniest part of the night for me.... Duke reels off a big run and the guy sitting behind TSully says something to the effect of "who is number 8" or "who was that".. IDK the exact words but TSully slowly and calmly turns around and says "man, thats Duke Johnson!!" (he may have said other words) and all the dude said was "ok... you dont have to yell at me" hahaha

Let's lighten the mood 4 a moment. In the spirit of Halloween, WHAT IS THE SCARIEST movie or movie scene u have ever seen!!!???

Posted by: 4-Real | October 05, 2014 at 11:16 PM

Miami at GT 2014 although it was a bust at the box office in Miami. It scared the sh!t out of me. Now I do think the epic FSU at Miami being released in November might be to scary to watch.

Cane Since 1982

But in the Comedy genre it is great to watch the weekly Golden postgame press conference on Saturdays. I believe kids pay 10 cents to get in to see this each week.

86,

I have flipped and no longer will let myself be known as a boot licker (used to be proud of that). I also don't believe myself to be a "Hater" So, I suggest that we go with (some already suggested but I don't know who to give the credit to) "Truthers" not "Haters." I suggest this name change because it is blatantly clear now that the truth is Golden and his staff are holding this team back.

To Golden: Al, I thank you for steering this program through some turbulent times that you were not made aware of when taking the job. I thank you for the recruiting that you were able to do during those times. I thank you for the kind words you have said about the program, school, and south florida community. BUT you can not coach and your services are no longer need. Get out now. Thank you and please let the door slam you in the a$$ on the way out. Good Bye you are the weakest link. Your Fired. and whatever cliché thing can be said to make you leave.

Cincinnati at home this week, with their starting QB out should be an easy win.

But like FAMU and Arkansas State will tell us nothing about how good we are.

FSU is a loss, so 8-4 is now the upside,
7-5 most realistic, 6-6 is the down side.

Oh and he said the defense they emloyed was the best way to stop the triple option and he wouldn't change anything if he had the chance to do it over again. I believe him. He wouldn't.

CaneRock

The one that takes the cake, is Him saying that the FB in the TO doesn't beat you. Yeah, ask the kids from the 2008 team if Jonathan Dwyer & Lucas Cox didn't gash their @$$e$ on 20 carries/206 yards!

WINNING!

I was asking TSully and KY this at the game... does anyone know if it is normal to have a RB on your kick off coverage? Obviously on the return team is normal... but on coverage? Edwards whiffed on a tackle on a return and I just wondering why a RB is in there to make tackles. TSully said it was the only way to get him on the field lol

Omar was killing the coaching staff. He almost had big head crushing Al too.
It can't be that everyone who sees this garbage has an agenda or is a hater. maybe its the blind loyalty shown by the botlickers that is the problem? if you can't identify a problem you'll never be able to fix it. And no one, not even GC can deny their is a problem.

UMike

IMO, if we can get a decent HC who either knows how to run a defense or is smart enough to hire someone who does, we have the size, speed and talent to win NOW... maybe not national title next year now, but definitely ACC title game now

Omar did go in...from a poster on CIS:

-He said what did Al do to deserve the job. What he did at temple only merited him coaching the next tier of schools
Temple was kicked out of their own conference.
-Kids don't want to come because they dont want to play for a coach that wont develop them.
-He said that Al absolutely cannot coach
-His coaching style is cancerous
-He has created a disaster
-Can't develop at all
-He is destroying Miami's program
-Firing Coach No D is not the answer
-His recruiting is watered down.
-NFL execs are not happy with what he is doing with the players...Thinks he put too much weight on Perryman
he can't even cover in space.
-Says NFL exec's believe there is talent on this team.

VA Cane

Showed something different from the TO? Night game? What did you expect the TO to do throw the bomb?......what it always does...run the ball.

The excuses are not valid. We are like pigs wallowing in the mire. Very sad, but we are right where we have been since the Fiesta Bowl Fiasco....KD11 on his knees at the end foretold the future.....nothing has changed really.....very sad and disappointing for a fallen program....and these players.

Hope and Change has become Despair and Stagnation...now theres a t shirt with a UM symbol on it!!!! For sale starting tomorrow at 9 am!!!!

This is not hating it is facts. I am not saying hang Sweat Pa from a palm tree, but something has got to change. The game plans are not working; they are not even close. I ought to know and see it; so do you!!!!

In a nice note Greg Olsen catches 2 TDs, including winning TD, as his son attends game. Very heart warming.....this makes one appreciate life. Greg Olsen is one of the great guys from UM, he is a fine player and a winner. He is a fine parent, and may God Bless his family. He is using his son's situation to help others struggling as well. Good good man and family. Hope KO will get the help he needs and get back on track in life. Very Nice!!!

SinisterCane

Golden is the most weak minded HC to ever lead the Hurricanes.

So let me get straight it's harder to play out night with no sun than to play in the scorching daytime heat. That's sound a crybaby northerner excuse but that would explained why Golden sweats so much like he just snorted 4 lines of coke before kickoff

"triangle, at least the next coach wont have to actually rebuild, he will simply needs to correctly use the talent here and continue the recruiting efforts. Golden has brought in talent, including a good QB."

I agree wholeheartedly. With depth issues at DT, LB, and TE aside... this is a very good group of players who would thrive under better circumstances.

"When they rereleased The Exorcist I was in HS. Saw it with my GF and jumped out of my seat when the phone rings. I was on edge bad. Scary movies F with my dreams. I cant watch them."

The most frightening film I have ever seen was Event: Horizon. I was fortunate enough to see it in theatres. It's also on Netflix (methinks). Oddly enough, I've never heard it mentioned.

Although, it's not a film... the most frightening thing I've ever seen (besides D'Onofrio's defense) was 2 Girls 1 Cup. I lasted only 15 seconds.

Actually, from what Kaaya has said, Shalala was probably more instrumental in bringing him in than Golden.

Not saying Golden didn't help, because these kids love him.

Coulrophobia, or fear of clowns, seems to be relatively common. A quick Internet search revealed 16,100 results. There are even websites dedicated to the subject, such as Ihateclowns.com, where coulrophobes gather to share their thoughts.

Clowns are common characters at Halloween events such as Universal Orlando's yearly Halloween Horror Nights, which featured a killer clown as its main icon for several years. Clearly, the fear is real.

I always look for positives in everything. After this game, it is VERY hard to find those.

I felt Golden would get till the end of the season to make changes at the DC spot if needed, seems like he won't get that long. It will cost him his job if he doesn't.

There is still a second half of season to be played. While it feels like gloom and doom at this moment, there is still a chance, slim chance, but a chance to win the Coastal.

Ohio_Cane

Joe Casale @sportsJC16 · 2 hours ago

$10 million. Cost of firing Golden with 5 years remaining on his contract. That number can be offset by $ he gets in his next gig. But $10 million is a working number. $20 million to hire the next coach ($4 million per/5 years). That gets you an upper echelon HC. Remaining $5 million goes to hiring a staff. Give or take a million.

To conclude, firing Golden ends up costing UM $35 million. That's a huge whack for a private school. You can do it cheaper but that doesn't really get you anywhere. Therein lies the problem. A coaches buyout is if he takes another job. UM may have language in Golden's deal post-extension that insulates them. I'm not sure on that.

My overall point is, even if there is buyout protection for UM in Golden's deal, you are looking at $20+million to make all the moves.

My friend @ByTimReynolds tells me UM has buyout protection in Golden's deal and I trust Tim.

Still would be an enormous investment for UM. I'm not saying I wouldn't do it. Just pointing out the size of the financial undertaking if they do. Making it an above the AD decision. Final UM pt. IF they fired Golden, they would also have to do something they've never done going back to when Howard was the coach.

UMike

Do staff members have buyout clauses also?
