NEW BLOG IS UP!

Go Canes

Jim Jones?

Wow.

And here I was thinking the Nevin Shapiro comparison was a ridiculous low blow.

Some of you really need some perspective in your lives.

Great job by the staff & players for Carter Hucks. Hope & pray the young man has a successful bone marrow transplant.

Beleaguered UM coaches Al Golden, Mark D’Onofrio get support from team leaders

http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/college/acc/university-of-miami/#storylink=cpy

Another case of Stockholm Syndrome, I guess.
Remember Rev. Jim Jones? He had vocal support from his team leaders too. How did that work out?

Go Canes

I've got nothing but love for UMIke, even though we don't agree on just about anything.

"He has learned, he has grown, he has developed, he is ready for that next step," Hocutt said. "He is ready to come to a program that can compete and win national championships. He's an excellent communicator, very organized, detail-oriented, and he's inspirational. He will inspire this football program to greatness."

Hey, Hocutt talking about me AGAIN? LOL

Never have understood the lack of tolerance for dissenting opinion.

It is called "The Internet Age" and anyone under 30 (or maybe even 40?) may almost be incapable at this point of any civil form of discussion, debate or disagreement.

There is NO PLACE for that on Canespace.

There's no place for it in society but it's still there!

Posted by: WWIN | October 08, 2014 at 01:13 PM

I cannot be held accountable for what "society" thinks or does but I am responsible for what happens on Canespace and we will have NONE of that on here.

Comprende?

So much anger on this blog.
Posted by: Go Canes | October 08, 2014 at 01:09 PM

Right?

So much anger, so little time to get it all out before we beat Cincy convincingly.

Then they have to shut up for another week that it seems they wanna get all their licks in now while the getting is good.

As far as JJ coming out....He was and is classic act. And if Golden's team was as good or better, then he would have said so. The fact the did not comment or would not answer speaks VOLUMES. The man knows talent and could pick a team apart in seconds....He is just being a CANE and not bashing the current state of U.

Posted by: LA3 | October 08, 2014 at 03:38 PM

Notice JJ said he has no opinion on the defense because he hasn't seen it, but when asked about Kaaya he gave an enthusiastic endorsement. So he only watches games when we have the ball. Cant blame him for not wanting to watch that D, but Looks to me like JJ was being politically correct. Really ya can't expect a former coach to bash the current one.

LA3

ONE of biggest problems I have is Al's refusing to look at pasted failures or old game tape AND AND AND not using resources. (JJ, Pete, etc) Every coach calls other coaches or trades information. Has clinics or attend other practices.

You have to evaluate perform, make changes, and always-ALWAYS attempt to learn/grow! The game of football is always changing! Have to stay on top of trends.

What a slow day on the blog when all we do is argue and discuss 2 really bad coaches! Randy and Golden - 2 of the very worst head coaches! At least Coker was smart enough not to change what was working and won a NC and almost a second. If we had brought either Randy or Golden in that year, how many on here really think we go undefeated and win the NC?

WWIN

Don't worry about Jockstrap, he knows nothing about the Canes. When he was talking records he was talking about when Golden was at Temple! Lol

Clown actually thinks Randy was canned over ncaa crap but Golden knew nothing of it! LMAO

Is it ok to ask the person who has his finger on the pulse of the team? LOL

Golden Worshiper aka jockstrap,

Did you ask Soup if I know anybody on the team yet? Is that what this is all about? Cuz I know players and you don't? You can't get close enough to be their jockstraps too? Awwwwww, how sad that you're jealous. LOL

SinisterCane

No Flame but a honest question, how can Randy warn everybody in the Admin about Nevin S. was bad for business and shouldn't let on campus then be held accountable for it when the bomb goes boom!

Go Canes

MAN I appreciate it.

Never have understood the lack of tolerance for dissenting opinion.

WWIN

UMike, you one of the 4 Horsemen don't act! Lol

UMike

30, I agree the University may not have been very forthcoming, but if he has a decent agent he would of known. And I think the leverage was not so much that he was blindsided, but just throwing him a bone to stay. Who knows

30CINCO

Posted by: UMike | October 08, 2014 at 01:40 PM
---------------------------------------------------
No offense taken.

I said IMO, RS was let go for the on field performance PLUS the rest of the NCAA mess.

I read multiple places that the administration knew ahead of time. After all, NCAA has to be on campus to investigate the allegations. What is now known, maybe AQM whisperer and his connections, LOL, is whether the admin told Golden/agent about it. Did he know? Maybe. It's also possible those that knew didnt tell him.. I would imagine if he knew, he and his agent would not have leverage to negotiate the extension they did.

UMike

The Man... I 100% agree with you about no "retread", I dont understand the obsession with that. I could be wrong, but none of the coaches who had success here were "Miami guys", right?

THE MAN

Go Canes,

Don't sweat or listen to what everyone "thinks" that you are implying. Do what you do. If it wasn't for some people on here all this site would be is a rag with the same rambling negative posts day in and day out about going back to 1983. This same mentaility is why this team has been on the decline for awhile now. No former player or coach will save the program. The only thing that will is someone who is fresh and an innovator, not some retread, IMO.

The purpose of a blog is to debate not for everyone to agree and try to recruit others to bash people who don't agree with you. Then some people ask how old people are. Funny. My point is everyone has their own OPINIONS and that all that matters...

SinisterCane

30.. this is NOT a shot at you, was just thinking...

You said Shannon was fired not for his win-loss record, but more for him having coaches under him that cheated (after he warned them). If you believe this, does that also mean you believe Golden knew of the looming issues? If RS was fired because it, then obviously people knew.

This should get us through the afternoon:)

From another site:

Holding opponents under 10 points
Golden - 4
Shannon 7
Holding teams under 14 points
Golden - 6
Shannon - 10
Holding teams under 20 points
Golden - 8
Shannon - 20

j.w.

Likely true.. Based on off field issues, not because anyone believes in this staff's coaching abilities.

When you gon post the records of Shannon and Golden that prove how much better Golden is so everybody can get a good laugh at you????

Well there it is again, the old race card being played this time FOR SURE by WWIN.

There is NO PLACE for that on Canespace.

Posted by: 86Cane | October 08, 2014 at 09:52 AM

There's no place for it in society but it's still there! Let's not act like racism is dead, cuz it's not. Do I think Randy was fired solely bcuz he was black? No, but I think it had something to do with it. Look at the number of black coaches in D1 and the NFL, the numbers are RIDICULOUS! When you just sit back or sweep it under the rug NOTHING CHANGES! Do I think this would be Golden's last year if he was black? Yes I do. His record is the same as Randy's!

IMHO

What coach was in trouble when Shannon was coach???? Oh that's right, you know nothing about the Canes you're just here to support Golden, Jockstrap! If anything I would be a Golden whisperer idiot, not AQM. Or is that you mad cuz you wanted to be AQM jockstrap too but he's not available? Is funny how every week you was constantly asking questions about him every other post, but I'm the whisperer?

Let me make sure I understand this correctly... Golden lies to you and I tell you don't believe him it's a lie and you come back resorting to name calling with me? Like 50 cent told Mayweather, say F Golden, F D'no, they the ones that lied to ya! F me, what you saying F WW for? Golden lied to ya, but you mad at me! Lol

The major concern is that kids see the talent here but the frustration, beating up little teams, getting beat by average teams, running from title contenders, excuses after excuse, poor game and clock management, schemes that do not condone winning......then Top 10 come knocking...and they WILL point out the gaping holes in the bag.....where do you go? I go to where I can play on TV, get exposure as a top player, get to title games, playoffs, NCs....and the NFL wants me. Is it here? It used to be THE Place.....now I wonder.

### Jimmy Johnson denied a broadcast report from two former Hurricanes offensive linemen that claimed that he called UM coaches after the Nebraska game and offered to help against the option but that Al Golden and Mark D’Onofrio turned him down.

“Never happened,” Johnson said by phone Tuesday. “A couple years ago, I called Mark and said, ‘Anytime you need my help I’m more than happy.’ We had a five-minute conversation. I haven’t talked to Mark in a couple years.”

On the state of the program, Johnson said: “I am as disappointed as anybody we haven’t done better. But I go back to: I trust Al Golden. Al works hard at it. He’s very diligent in his recruiting. He will recruit good players. He’s a smart guy that is going to make the right decisions….

“I want it to happen right away," he said of on-field success for the program that's still dear to him. "I wanted it to happen last year. I am as impatient as anyone. [But] Al was handcuffed a little bit. We've got to give him time…. I had my problems early [as coach] with the Miami program. I’m sure people weren't real happy with me the first year. I think things will work out because I trust him. I am 100 percent behind Al Golden.”

Asked if UM needs to play a more attacking defense like his UM teams did, Johnson said: “To say my style is better than somebody else’s would be wrong for me to do. I don’t know the talents of the individuals they have. I don’t want to sit here and judge and say the way we did it was better.”

He declined to critique D’Onofrio’s approach because he said he’s not at practice to analyze the players’ skills.

Johnson said he is “very impressed” with freshman Brad Kaaya: “I really like this young quarterback. He’s really going to be a good player. He’s got a great touch on the ball.”

Johnson said he hasn't spoken with Golden this season but has told him in the past that he’s available “any time I can help.”

He knows some former players are saying “let’s go back to the old days.” But “it’s going to be hard to get back to the old days.”

Please see the last post for details on Gino Torretta's criticism of the UM staff.

Go Canes would give Golden till 2024 to get us to the ACC title game cause the cloud hand cuffed him.

Yea.. everyone is posting on their team blogs and everyone has a track record of posting other teams issues.... right? I guess its just a big coincidence that when we gave up 41 to UN you posted articles about top teams giving up points and yards and the week Golden gets more criticism that ever you post about "no one being immune" and a link about Saban.

Nothing is manufactured, it is all based on your own personal blog history. I know you think you are smarter than all of us and a bigger fan than all of us, but we arent as dumb as you like to think

Go Canes

Golden deserves criticism. The team is losing.

Saban should be completely above it, which is why I posted no one being immune.

No other reason.

Sorry, any assumption to the contrary is completely manufactured by you.

And btw, the #1 trending story on Facebook and Twitter is that same story I posted. I guess everyone out there loves Golden too.

No I'm not a Bama fan.

Yesterday I posted a hysterical video with some crazed Bama fan ranting all over Colin Cowherd.

Secret meaning of course.

I posted an article earlier about how fans raised $90k to cover Mississippi State's fine last Saturday.

Pretty cool story, but obviously had some hidden agenda behind it to make Golden look better.
