I think people have reached a breaking point with your condescending blog style Douche. That and the fact that you never ever admit that you are wrong about Golden and how the school can fix the problem.

Every week "you all" move the "line" back a little closer to reality, yet you refuse to acknowledge that you were wrong in your assessment of this coaching abortion in Coral Gables.

This notion that we're angry while you're level headed is laughable. I'm pizzed like all fans of The U are right now, but the Miami Hurricanes doesn't consume me to the point of pretending that what ails UM can be corrected.

This isn't the second coming of Butch that we are watching this season, it's Shannon part II, no offense to Randy.

You guys were a blast to hang with.

Mad props to those still spending time & money going to the games. It's especially hard to watch this defense get steamrolled every game.

CaneRock

The first shot in this ugly Civil War? It wasn't former Miami star Philip Buchanon calling coach Al Golden "Al Folden'' on Twitter. It wasn't former lineman Joaquin Gonzalez tweeting, "I think it's time for a new (defensive) coordinator."
The first shot came, face to face, behind closed doors. Golden invited former players to watch video of the spring game with current players. It started pleasantly enough. Dozens of alumni stood up, introduced themselves. Ted Hendricks. Brett Romberg.

"I'm Edgerrin James, and this is my room,'' the great running back said in the meeting room he donated money to build.
Everyone laughed. That's how the day began. As the video began, Golden told any alum with a question to ask it.
Julio Cortes, a captain of the 1983 championship team, remembers raising a hand after a few plays.
"I was looking at No. 51, the linebacker, which is what I played, and he's not reading his keys,'' Cortes said. "I'm watching the guard pull. The linebacker doesn't read him. He gets smoked. If you follow your keys, that doesn't happen.

"So I said, 'What is that guy coached to read?' And then I said, 'And why is he not hustling when the ball's on the other side of the field?' It upset me. I didn't know No. 51 was Denzel Perryman, their best player. They didn't have names on their jersey.
"I just wanted to know what they were being coached. And I didn't get a good answer. They said, 'It's different now.' OK, I said, 'What's the linebacker taught? What's his keys?' "

Someone else jumped in with a question. And another former player. It began growing loud that day and has grown louder right through Saturday's loss at Georgia Tech to the point it's open season on Golden.
And now some former Miami players say they are being threatened with not being welcome in the building they once ruled if this continues.
Not if the losing continues.

The 'Cane-on-'Cane hating.
It's sad to watch if you've been around Miami at its best, its strongest, when the link between football generations set this program apart. Michael Irvin would call the phone in his old dorm room and talk up the freshman answering. Old quarterbacks counseled new ones. NFL stars worked out beside UM players.
Now they might not be welcome?


It's not a rosy time for anyone around Coral Gables, starting with Golden. He's actually one of the more sensitive men in that job. How many coaches cry after a tough loss (Clemson) or careen around the stadium after tight wins (Florida, at Georgia Tech).
It can't be easy being the target of so much anger from the very people from whom you expect support. But that's the state of this program. And these players who built it, win by win, see their proud tower being dismantled.
Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta told 790 The Ticket that on a scale of 1 to 10 his confidence in Golden is a "five." Allen Bailey tweeted that "major changes" need to come. Clinton Portis. Warren Sapp. Randal Hill. They've had their say.
You never dismiss passion. That's what made this program great. And it's no surprise these players won't sit quietly on the sideline if you followed their careers.

"I don't listen to it,'' Golden said this week of the criticism.
That's hard to believe. Sure, listening would make his ears bleed. But it's one thing to dismiss my column wondering why Miami didn't adjust to Georgia Tech's power running game.
It's another thing to dismiss generations of past Hurricanes, from Buchanon to Torretta all the way back to Cortes, the captain of the first national title team.

"I'm watching the TV wondering why that middle linebacker is lining up nine yards downfield," Cortes said. "That center for Georgia Tech didn't have a nose guard on him, and so he came out and immediately goes after the middle linebacker — Perryman.
"Cover the center so the linebacker can run more freely or move him up to five yards to have a chance. I screamed at the TV. I turned it off. I couldn't take any more."
For the past decade, Miami hasn't been Miami. It hasn't won in double digits. It hasn't been to a major bowl. This 3-3 start underlines that fact. It's been ugly at times. But what's turning uglier than that is this unholy Civil War.

That's crazy. These Guys Built EVERYTHING At Miami and to not listen to anything they are saying is sad and crazy. Guess Golden will be prideful. But my father tells me that too much pride can be a bad thing.

LaQuinton

4 real.. that's just crazy right ? These guys aren't canes !! Why punish our own ? For having a input ? They are all asking legit questions.. just why is this happening ? What are you guys seeing that we aren't seeing because what we are all watching on tape or in person is just crazy ? I laughed when I saw Denzel lining 9 yards back and Golden says that we told him throughout the game to move up. Denzel didn't it must have been because the center was free to block him while Lasky ran up the middle.

Carter Hucks, a third-grader from Charleston, South Carolina, is getting a chance to live out a dream this week in Coral Gables.

He’s hanging with the Hurricanes.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation reached out to University of Miami officials two weeks ago to bring Hucks and his parents to South Florida so he could spend a few days with their favorite football team.

Diagnosed with Fanconi anemia — a rare genetic blood disorder — back in May, the eight-year old boy is scheduled to have a bone marrow transplant on Oct.21. But first, he’ll get to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Coach Al Golden said injured receiver Rashawn Scott is considering seeking a medical redshirt for this season.

The 6-3, 205-pound senior injured his shoulder/clavicle during a scrimmage in fall camp and has yet to play a down this season.

Golden said because of the depth Miami has at receiver — and the fact several young players have stepped up — it would make sense for Scott to sit out.

“We’re going to do what’s best for Rashawn,” Golden said. “But make no mistake he’s been working hard. He’s been trying to get back. We’re just being very cautious with it. It’s a tricky little deal up here in this area that we generally only see in automobile accidents. That’s all I can share with you.”

### Clinton Portis today joined the long list of former Hurricanes with critical comments about the UM coaching staff.

“When the linebackers are five, six yards [back] and safeties are 15 yards deep and the cornerbacks are playing off,... you are never going to stop the run,” Portis told Jonathan Zaslow and Joy Taylor on The Ticket. “You would think we are playing a run and shoot team from the alignment of our players.”

Offensively, Portis criticized the staff for not throwing more to Phillip Dorsett. “I don’t feel they use him the correct way,” he said.

Portis said with the amount of playmakers UM has, “you feel like there should be more plays made. That quick screen we’re using, that doesn’t work for us. Talent is not being used. We have to put our players in better position.

"I want Joseph Yearby and Duke Johnson on the field together and spread everybody out. No way I’m going to allow you to stack the box to stop Duke Johnson. You’ve got to put your team in a better position.”

UM is 79th of 125 teams in scoring, at 27.5 per game.

UMike

Miami has several talented players on offense, but for some reason, it has had a major issue converting third downs.

The Hurricanes (3-3) might have thought they had cured their woes last week against Georgia Tech, which entered the game ranked 117th nationally — among the bottom 10 teams — in making third-down stops. The Hurricanes failed to convert on four of five third-down opportunities.

Now ranked last in the nation in third-down success (15-for-63, 23.8 percent), UM should have renewed hope against Cincinnati. The Bearcats (2-2), who visit at noon Saturday (FSN), have the softest third-down defense in the country, allowing opponents to convert 55.2 percent of the time.

How to solve this paradox of resistible-force-meets-movable-object?

“You’ve got to execute. You’ve got to catch the ball. You’ve got to do everything right,” UM wide receiver Phillip Dorsett said.

The lack of success is a major reason the Hurricanes’ offense, considered one of the most talented in the ACC, has not produced many highlight-reel plays. UM is 29th in yards per play, but ranks just 84th in yards per game and 81st in points. The Hurricanes are 114th in time of possession (27:09 per game) and held the ball for less than 20 minutes against Georgia Tech, their worst single-game figure in at least 20 years.

Coach Al Golden said some of his players might also need to relax.

“Maybe we’ve just got to stop thinking about it and start going,” Golden said. “We’ve looked at it, we’ve managed it in a lot of different ways.”

Watching this thing unravel is so sad. I don't think anybody will be supporting Goldie after Saturday. I thought we finally turned a corner with this hire. And we did in the PR area. That X and O area though. :-/

I was soooooo wrong. I was also blinded by hope. OGV analyzed that hire better than anybody. He wouldn't even give Goldie a chance as most of us did. OGV, you nailed it bro. []_[]

Dude on a Pale Horse

UMike is way too ugly for me to believe that's his daughter, lol.

So here's the deal with the bubble screen. If you follow the offense closely you'll see that the bubble screen is a check down based on a defensive look, so in essence James Coley isnt really calling them, Brad Kaaya is. Now should James and Brad be working on opening up that portfoio? Yes of course. And should James be in Brad's ear about when that's an appropriate check? Yes, because 3rd and 7 is not the place to use that. Miami needs to do more to trust its WRs even after the look is bad. Trust Dorsett can beat a two deep. Trust Coley can beat a safety etc.

LUTHER ROBINSON


"Across the locker room, center Corey Linsley is told Robinson only started a couple games in college. At first, he's confused.

"What do you mean he started one or two games?" Linsley said.

That's it, he's told. Then, quizzical turns to bewildered.

"That's amazing," he said. "He was a good player from Day 1. You could tell. I would have never guessed that. Somebody screwed up."

Crazy thing with Robinson, is Him & Khalil Mack played on the SAME TEAM! I saw that team play once, they showed up to the game with 2 van loads of kids, and they whooped this team that had like 50-60 kids on the sidelines by 40+ points.

Look at the lack of Talent we supposedly had under Flawless: Marcus Fortson was on the NE practice squad, Luther Robinson - Packers, Sean Spence - Steelers, Olivier Vernon - Phins, Adewale Ojomo - Played for the Giants

Whitlock was right about this clown...if Temple was still in the Big East when He got there, then you can cut His career .500 record IN HALF!
