This is great; what a legacy all these athletes created....we must do better on the field for these great football players....True Champs!!!!

They are still blogging away on the last blog!

Who was 30Cinco calling out on the last blog? I can't believe these guys would even chime in to support this abortion after last weeks Al Golden "Love in".

The school did owe Al a debt of gratitude for what he went through with the Shapiro investigation. That debt was PAID IN FULL when he made a run at the Pedo State job.

I can't wait for next week when UM "rolls" a QB-less Cincinnati team. Who's gonna hoist the "We're Back (again...)" trophy?

Looking forward to Saturday's game.

Hopefully the weather stays cool and it doesn't rain!

You'll be a "Truther" by the end of the VT game Soup!!

The Dude

I'm with SOUP, I'm going to enjoy all six or seven of the wins we get this year since they will be few and far between. I just need to convince the SOUPSTER that Al is going to get fired sooner or later, so why even give him 2015? Why not make the move this year?

The Dude

SOUP,

After the VT game, I will write the open letter article for you if you need me to, lol.

Sarasota 'cane

And enough of this B.S. that Al and agent didn't know about Shapiro. If there's any truth to that statement his agent should be fired for incompetence.

Nice article SOUP, great research! Hope to see you Saturday.

BTW... here's a quote I saw attributed to Al Golden...

Asked about fan anger, he said: "I don't listen to anything."

SMARTEST MAN IN THE ROOM SYNDROME... ! (We're all blithering idiots not worthy of his time.)

itsa_canes_thang

If it were me and both Buth and Shiano were available I would still take Butch just based on total body of work Schiano did have a nice small run at arutgers but it was short lived. Butches legacgy lasted for a few years even after he was gone from thw U. We need to get back to the days were all freahmen receivwd a nice haircut upon arrival.

SOUP

Roach check email in 15.

Dude on a Pale Horse

ICT,

Butch is the most logical choice. He's ready when The U is. He'll be a bargain. He has unfinished business and something to prove. He's proven to be an elite recruiter. The talent he put in the NFL is unrivaled. HOF talent. The list goes on and on and on. We should be talking with him right now. At the very least be having an open conversation.

SOUP

I got VACane as head coach, The Dude as defensive coordinator, WWIN as offensive coordinator (because he knows NOTHING about defense), MiamiCane coaching LBs, OhioCane coaching WRs, UMike coaching RBs, Canerock on OL or DL, Roach on Special Teams and CGNC on TEs.

The rest I can't figure out, but Terrance is our PR man fo sho! Can U imagine the Sunsations under his watch? OH MY!

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think Butch would keep a lot of the staff intact also. He'll need a DC. May keep Ice, Kehoe, Swasey, Carroll, Hurlie. He can bring back Sol. butch would probably want his own OC but maybe he could work with Coley for continuities sake. I'm sure the AD could leverage that. Bottom line is Al Golden will be fired eventually. I vote we enjoy the few games we'll win and demand for him to be gone so we can hire Butch Davis.

Dude on a Pale Horse

The Dude is the AD. I recommend CoCane as the DC. You just gotta keep him away from the cameras and the reporters.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Go Canes will be our media relations director.

Plus CoCane can help coach the D for Coach L come tourny time.

Dude on a Pale Horse

VA,

I thought you might think this is funny. I used to drive by a couple schools where they have the Pop Warner kids. My wife makes me go another way now cause I freak out in the car when I see them standing around. Lol! I want to slap their coaches! Practice d@mn it practice! I swear no one moves out there.

Just a question for anyone. I'm pretty confidant to say I see 3 more losses the rest of the season. At vtech, fsu and at virginia. So in my opinion that puts us at 6-6 for the year. And based on on the fact since we haven't win a bowl game since 2006 in Boise. 6-7 after the bowl seems likely. So my question to all of you spacers who definitely seem to be in the know about inside rumblings within the program, do you think if we finish 6-6 and 6-7 after the bowl, will that be enough to get rid of golden this year so we can't start recovering ASAP and not have to go through another season of his incompetence? Anyone?

86Cane

Go Canes will be our media relations director.

Posted by: The Dude | October 06, 2014 at 09:57 PM

Yeah, but he is gonna need a BIG budget.

Nicky...I am fairly confident that Golden will be here through 2015.

Nick

Thanks for the info 86 and even though I don't post on here much I have been a pretty dedicated reader of blog since the end of 2007. So I just wanted to say that I enjoy the blog and the info on here from everyone very much and thanks for putting this thing together for all us canes fans 86.

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | October 06, 2014 at 08:47 PM

No kidding. It was reported in the Sun Sentinel in late fall of 2010.

Ohio_Cane

Cam Chancellor is so much fun to watch. Closest thing to Sean T I've ever seen. Makes me miss 26 every time I watch him.

Ohio_Cane

The only way Golden is fired before the end of 2015 is if he goes under .500 from here on out. If we finish 4-8 or 5-7 this year, there's a chance. If still be surprised if he's let go after this season. 6-6 or better and he's staying.

All IMO ^^

Yeah, we’re 3-3 right now, but I still think we have a lot we can accomplish. There are still things out there that we can reach. Just at least get us back to our winning ways and get us to the Coastal [Division] championship.

Soup has really turned the dogs loose on this blog. No holds barred and everyone is now criticizing Golden.

Anyone who has seen these players play live knows this coaching is holding this team back. There is talent on this team and to see the disparities in talent with some of the teams over the last three years that beat the Canes make it more frustrating.

I am pulling for Golden but Golden is coaching for his job right now. A 5-1 finish is acheivable and will silence his critics. A 4-2 finish might allow Golden to keep his job but D'No is not safe and 3-3 might lead to a change in staff. Golden needs to produce the coaching job of hislife.

The Dude

I really don't see how Golden can finish 5-1. No way this team wins @VT.

What else could I do? After that debacle at GT I had to let it go. Now when we beat Cincy convincingly I will get a grip on this here thing. LOL

WWIN

For the ONE BILLIONTH and ONE time!!!!

This is GOLDEN'S DEFENSE not D'no's! Getting rid of D'no does NOTHING!

D'no = puppet
Golden = puppet master

Please stop saying fire D'no, say Fire Golden instead!

I wish Joe Rose would've asked em' about that Center uncovered...SHEEZ!

LaQuinton

Kam Chancellor says that he watches sean taylor highlights before every game. I saw him when he first got to seattle and he is BIG . I saw earl thomas, Richard sherman.. mebane.. those guys are good people.

I don't think Golden is going anywhere for 2 more years. He graduates players and the administration respects him dno maybe not so much but I don't know that for sure. Sucks wish butch was here but we have had golden for years now with a cloud like Mike said. Let's see what he can do with some time. Go CANES

Sarasota 'cane

Al Golden tried to ditch UM for PSU!! What is there to respect?

He isn't going to fix shyt! I believe he wants to get fired at this point. That's what carpet baggers do in college football. You think Charlie Weiss feels bad about getting canned at Kansas?

UMike

Can we set up the spam filter so that every post with the words cloud and/or more time in it gets zapped?

UMike

IMO the only think Golden "deserves" is the money he has collected from the University... MILLIONS.. and even that is questionable.

UMike

I would like to take a second and separate the truths and myths about Golden...

Truths
Golden raised the talent level.

Golden repaired and improved relationships with local coaches and schools.

Golden improved the size, strength and speed of the team.

Golden "stayed" when the investigation was announced (see more in the myths section)


Myths
Golden was blindsided by the investigation and still "stayed". Lets clear this up. Word was out, people knew so there is no way in hell Golden didnt know that there was at the very least a possibility of an investigation. People act like Golden had offers out the door from others schools but decided to say anyway. Golden came from Temple... Temple... and was Miamis 3-4 choice and LEAPED at the chance to come. So please stop acting like he could of easily left, he had no where to go!!

Myth
He deserves credit and/or more time for "guiding us through the cloud". This is complete and utter bs. First, see about comment about him "staying"... second you know who deserves credit, Shalala. She went to bat for us, she stood up for us, she fought for us, she called out the NCAA for us... all Golden did was coach. Of course it was used against us in recruiting, but other coaches also use our troubled pass, current disaster on D, no fans etc etc etc against us. Did we lose out on recruits, sure, but even after the penalties came out we have lose big time recruits. We are talking about the IDEA of sanctions he guided us through, while other coaches deal with REAL sanctions. He had no where else to go and used this as an excuse for every thing included getting more money that he didnt earn.

86Cane

UMike...who pissed in your Cheerios?

UMike

86.. Im actually in a great mood lol.. I passed all my CPR/ First Aid tests yesterday... just tried of people saying Golden "deserves" stuff, as if the millions he is making isnt enough lol

UMike

juts tired**

CaneRock

UMike...you think Shannon warned Shalala about ShapirHoe?

UMike

CR, I think so but she wanted those checks lol.. but for me she did more fighting and guiding during that period than Golden.

Go Canes

The revisionist history is out of control again.

UMike

CR.. i NEVER said she saved us...not at all my point. Just saying with the shyt went down she was on the front lines, not Golden.

UMike

Go Canes... do you STILL think FSU is our only loss from here on out?

Gotcha.

UMike

IDK if true, but say this on CIS..

"I live in Atlanta and was driving home listening to Paul Johnson show. Dude called in and asked about how the player star rating system is and Johnson was like, "I don't know how they do it, but you just saw a bunch of 2 stars beat up a bunch of 4 and 5 stars. So that's what that means to me."

86Cane

Golden deserves credit for getting us through "The Cloud". He deserves more time to get it right and get it fixed.

Yeah, so that's gonna leave a mark.

Go Canes

Yes I do think we can run the table except for FSU.

We'll likely be a toss up against Va Tech and favored in all the rest except for the Noles.

UMike

Go Canes.. Dude, you have lost it upstairs lol.. you realize you have predicted this after the Louisville game and NU game... right? So that means we have lost 2 more games since you first predicted it lol... take the blinders off dude, its ok

The hardest thing to get in football is good talent. The one thing u can go out and get is good coaching. We r sitting in a region of abundant talent resource. We r wasting it by not having the coaching. Go out and get the coaches. Why is it so simple & still not been done. Do away with this pen state clueless posse. This is really frustrating. It's simple.

LOL Sinister!

'More time to get it fixed.' To fix calling a pass defense on a runing play? To fix running a 3-4 defense that's not working with the personnel he has. If he doesn't realize he has to change schemes in the 4th year, then that's it. Coaches come in with a certainly ideology. They only change after they get fired for the result or lack theirof on the field.
I mean, look, many of u here use to blame shanon for looking clueless on the sideline. Look @ golden. He looks like a high school janitor on the sidelines. That's certainly not a boss look. Compare with Saban on the sidelines.
Look, this U is too critical to CFB. I say fire a coach after every 2 years if they r not getting it done. It only takes a year to identify a good coach. If it's a scrub, get rid of him her before u loose boosters, money, recruits, fans and national respectability.

Pete Carroll...do you think Golden ever considered having our WR coach ask Daddy to come down for some brainstorming or maybe our staff to go out west to see how they do things?

Yup. If you haven't checked out the way Dantonio and Narduzzi has Michigan State playing you should. Fast, aggressive and awesome. Dantonio is not going to get the very top tier players because he is in Michigan, but he has done an outstanding job with what he has

Itsa_Canes_Thing

ok sure, Golden does get some credit for getting us through the cloud, but it is not like we won any ACC championships or even coastal championships. We haven't even won a bowl game... but yet he got a raise.. for what!

All this while he tries to run to PSU when the position came available. In my eyes he has not won anything, recruited decently despite the record got a raise for failing at his job and wanted to leave the U at the drop of a hat. We don't need him. If he doesn't want to commit to change and he is only trying to get a better opportunity somewhere else, then we need to dump him before things get worse.
