Its on Twitter it must be true!!! Lol

miamicane

Its obvious that some.of the d line took the nite off

LB

Wow. Not only did we lose consecutive games to teams with a losing record, but UM is dead last in the Coastal.

TonyCane

Biggest issue is that we have run out of steam well before the end of the season. It happened 7 games into the season last year, 9 games this year.

We have no depth. That's on the coaches at this point.

Ohio_Cane

Amari Cooper going off. Thanks, Randy.

laquinton

On twitter reports that they are fighting in the locker room.... smh. 6-6 just wow

BEERicane

Also, leave the quotes out if you are going to use "close enough" As it's contradictory. Just like all of your lame ass recruiting posts. Clueless.

Last in the costal........

Golden has to go. It's unfortunate because I like the guy. He's has enough time. This was the straw that broke the camels back. Shame.

I hope the bowl game is not at night.

Problem with firing golden this yr is we would be 3rd choice at best with UF and Michigan in the market for new leadership. We'd get table scraps which is what golden is... We are stuck.

I agree 100% BEERicane... Sad, but true.

Keep it classy, Beer. Glad to know Ya.

Now there are reports about fights in the locker room.

Woof.

That ship has sailed, USC beat ND 49-14 with 55 players.

CaneRock

3rd choice is better than what we have now.

Canezitis

We are just soft overall as a team, but especially on D- like DL and Dno's waists. Someone needs to fire that special teams coach. Been horrible for last 4yrs.

I hate myself for loving U

roachcane77

Would it be wrong to hope that the fights are between players and coaches?

Good call SinisterCane!

Golden lost the team, lol. Who would've guessed?

Buenas noches, compadres. I'm out.

Canezitis

We'd still get Chud or schianno. You can bet harbough gets first dibs with Michigan, but have no idea who'd take the UF job.

The Dude

Do you think the fight started because the bootlickers in the locker room tried to tell the haters to trust the process?

We wouldn't be in the market for the same coaches those teams are. Their coaching searches won't impact us

This appears to be the meltdown needed to trigger a coaching change. Real interested to see if the admin cares or if Miami football is dead.

Axiom

The Golden None. We made a bad hire. Now fix it. If not, don't re-purchase season tickets. Simple.

The Dude

Crazy to think how bad we are with all the talent on O and the solid amount of talent we have on D. Duke and Perryman might get numbers on the ring one day.

roachcane77

Oh well... I'm feeling done...

I get all psyched about change, and I know damn well there will be no change...

Duke for SURE BETTER GET put on the ring!

Didnt even touch their qb..just terrible

#FireAlGolden is or was trending.

Axiom

Who is the bigger pussy? AG coached team or the UM brass?

SJMPARMAN

Duke may have to wait for a real AD to get put on the ring. This one seriously doesn't want to hold his coach accountable in any way.

SJMPARMAN

We just lost consecutive games against VA and Pitt with 10 NFL players. 10!!!!!!!!!!!! Think about that for a sec.

SinisterCane

I type this knowing I maybe banned for it but if UM doesn't fire AL Golden for 6-6 or 6-7 then their racist

The Dude

Remember how I said I'd fire Al after the Pitt game? Lol. I would first thing in the morning and would hire Butch on Friday. All coaches can stay on or quit in the next 2 weeks. Coley interim HC.

SJMPARMAN

If Al Golden could coach as well as he talks, we might have something. But we don't. It is what it is.

The Dude

Posted by: SinisterCane | November 29, 2014 at 11:12 PM

I don't think it makes them racist because Randy wasn't fired simply over Ws and Ls. It does however leave them a little open to that criticism.

It's tough watching two "well coached" teams in Bama and Auburn...

#1) They have good talent, and #2) they have DEVELOPED THEM, and put them in positions to win.


The difference between US and THEM is, we've got #1), but absolutely NO #2)...

The Dude

How about Lane Kiffin? He runs his mouth like the old Canes, lol.

Ohio_Cane

Beer, I told U that U were in a timeout. Now settle down for a bit. ;-)

SOUP's lawn probably wins lawn of the year in his neighborhood every year.

We lost to a team that lost to PHUCKIN'! Akron...AKRON! And they scored more points on us, than they did Akron...let that sink in for a minute...

AL GOLDEN'S POST-GAME COMMENTS

On playing from behind for most of the game…
“It was disappointing. That’s their M.O. If they can play with a lead, they’re tough. We let them do that. They had field position on us all night. They converted their chances, starting with that first third down that ended up being a big play. A couple of plays later, they ran it in. It was disappointing that they came out. We needed to respond a little bit better, and we did not.”

On if he envisioned the end result…
“No. No. If you look at the line, they had 60 plays for 360 [yards] we had 73 for 421 [yards]. They made more plays than we did. They had a shorter field than we did. Our kickoff coverage was not good, theirs was outstanding. We’re just not getting it deep enough like their guy was doing to us…they made us pay with that. Even when we answered in the beginning of the third quarter, we kick off and they start at our 40 [-yard line].

On if his team is more talented than its 6-6 record indicates…
“We’re responsible for the record at the end of the day. I’m responsible for the record. I feel like we have a lot of guys on our team – Clive [Walford], Duke [Johnson], Denzel [Perryman] – that are chasing elite. Maybe we haven’t had that for a while. Overall as a team, we need to perform better, and that’s my responsibility. We are what our record is, period. I’m disappointed.”

On why Pitt was so successful in the red zone…
“We didn’t stop them enough on third down. I think they were 50% on third down. We didn’t get any takeaways. It was a short field. When you play a team like this, it’s a little bit like playing Georgia Tech – in that you have to make them go a long field, so if they’re going to play like that, they need to get three or four more first downs. It gives you more opportunities, because that’s how they play the game. They converted down there. We needed one stop. On the other end, we needed one more play in the red zone and we did not.”

On if his team became divided during the last few weeks…
“No. I think there’s frustration. We have a lot of guys that worked hard and a lot of guys that have been through a lot and a lot of guys that want to win. I wouldn’t say that that’s accurate or fair. I don’t think it’s divided. I think there’s some frustration. We have Jon [Feliciano] and Shane [McDermott] and those guys who have been around a long time, and they’re playing next to [Christopher] Herndon and [Brad] Kaaya and Trevor Darling. There are guys at different stages in their careers, but I don’t think it’s splintered.”

On the team’s schedule for next week…
“No. 1, just get the team healed up. From our standpoint, we have to go out recruiting right away and then we’ll find out where our bowl assignment is. We’ll go from there.”

On his message as he hits the recruiting trail…
“My message right now? I’m really disappointed in our performance tonight and how we played. Obviously we think there are still a lot of positives. It would be fruitless for me to talk about it right now. It wouldn’t be fair.”

On if his team suffered a letdown after emotional investment in Florida State game…
“I think obviously as a coach, it’s one of the things that I have to evaluate. I have to look closely at it. Going back to that, we did invest a lot, but it’s easy during the week to just paint a brush and say that’s the reason. That’s one of the things that I will evaluate personally. In terms of our kids practicing, or mindset, or things like that, I haven’t noticed a difference.

On playing from behind for most of the game…
“It was disappointing. That’s their M.O. If they can play with a lead, they’re tough. We let them do that. They had field position on us all night. They converted their chances, starting with that first third down that ended up being a big play. A couple of plays later, they ran it in. It was disappointing that they came out.

Overall as a team, we need to perform better, and that’s my responsibility. We are what our record is, period. I’m disappointed.”

On the status of tight end Clive Walford, who left the game due to injury…
“I think he’ll be okay. I wish I knew if the x-rays came back negative, but it sounded like it was going to be okay.”

On how difficult he thinks it will be to turn the team around emotionally…
“I think we’ll definitely turn around, I don’t think there’s any question about that. It’s hard. You have different classifications that you’re dealing with. There are a lot of guys that played a lot of football tonight - Christopher Herndon, Tyre Brady, guys like that - they have to stay positive. Some of the older guys, we need them to stay positive, finish what they started, continue to improve and try to get us our first [bowl game] win in forever.”

On the balance between elite talent and younger players on the team…
“We didn’t play well enough tonight. In terms of the big picture, I’m trying to get everyone better. I don’t think any of us sat here in spring ball and thought we were going to be playing with a freshman right tackle or a freshman quarterback. That’s how it evolved. At the end of the day, we didn’t play well enough to beat Pitt. I just don’t want to get into excuses or rationalization or anything like that. At the end of the day, we’re responsible for every player on the team and how they perform in every position and every unit. We all know there were some challenges there, but nothing that would alleviate not playing better tonight.”

On the performance of special teams…
“We’re struggling with our kickoff coverage. We’re not driving the ball deep enough, we’re not giving our guys enough time to cover it, and we’re not hanging it up right now. I tried both kickers again today. Pitt did a better job than we did in that department. Overall, I think [Justin] Vogel has had a very productive year for us. Our return game is something that we’re going to have to really sit down and look at here and work on a lot before the bowl game. We haven’t had an explosive return. That’s disappointing.”

On Duke Johnson, who became the program’s all-time leading rusher…
“I wish it was a better environment to celebrate what he has accomplished, because I think it’s extraordinary, I really do. For him to do it in the timeframe that he has done it makes it really unique for him. He’s a unique young man. [I am] grateful for the opportunity to coach him every day. The way he has responded and accepted coaching and changed a lot of little things in his game to be as productive as he has been this year, he deserves it.”

Not a bad idea. Of course at this point Dannyboycane13 would be an upgrade, but VA would be instant credibility

It's OBVIOUS that the players do NOT want to play for Golden!

Both teams together will have at least 10-12 coaches on their list and can only take 2, so that leaves at least 8-10 coaches for us to choose from. Plus I would bet that Butch, Chud, Mario, and Schiano are not on their list.

BEERicane

#TheBEERisFLOWING!

It won't be safe for Folden in the streets tomorrow. He better stay in the house. A caller that sounded 100 years old said if he sees another bubble screen he's coming after him. Lmao!

I hope that would be the case WWIM. I just want a coach that's into winning not one who sells paperbacks. Crap why did we buy into a guy who is still using print? We suck.

First time EVER, I did not watch the game...So glad I didn't. There was doubt in the back of my mind that we would win this game. Move along fellow Spacers, nothing to see here. We are IRRELEVENT, period!

BEERicane

^Yooper, I watched most of the game. But this is the first time I've ever left in the middle of one (2nd qtr). Only to retun to an uninspired heap of crao

BEERicane

Since we are stuck with the worst coach in any sport at any level in the world, I just hope he cans his best friend and lover D?No! If he does that I'll hate him a little less.

BEERicane

To make the list more brief

Staff for Golden to retain:
Carroll
Coley (preferably in a different capacity)
Harris

Butch. For God's sake Butch. I'm sure we can work out a deal.

CoCane

BEER,

I agree^^^

Special Teams is the WORST unit on the team!

I think Golden's job was safe before tonight, but I don't think it is now! You lose on senior night at home to a garbage team?

Carroll has the WR's and TE's balling. His development of Walford was excellent. Too bad J. Coley doesn't know how to use them properly...

nemo2002

I WAS RIGHT . . .
When I said (four years ago) that "a new coaching staff" was going to be the main, lame excuse for a poor season in 2011.
When I said (repeatedly) that "there is no such thing" as UTough.
When I said (regrettably) that the team "isn't getting better" under AG.
When I said (two weeks ago) that "the season was over" after we lost to GT.

WAS I ALSO RIGHT . . .
When I said (four years ago) that "a new coaching staff" was going to be the main, lame excuse for a poor season in 2015?

YooperCane

Beer, It is indeed a very dark day for us Cane fans. I am lost for words as to what has happend. I would be shocked if the administration does not make an immediate change in the coaching staff. We have obviously regressed to the point of no return. We would be better off to cut our losses and move on to someone that can take command of this ship and start to steer it in the right direction.

Montreal-Cane

The sad state of the UM football program

The UM slogan this year was misspelled...Correction is: RESCREWED instead of renewed.

Ohio_Cane

Coke, wth happened to Stacy Coley then? Our highest ranked WR and he had ZERO TDs and was a shell of his 2013 self.

Terrance Sullivan

The highlight of the night was the generous KYCane, RaizeCane, Kenny, Monica, Zilla and other CaneSpacers who purchased me a Miami Hurricanes cake and we shared it during the tailgate. I love U all. We are the tailgate national champions. As far as the game and season. We are the definition of mediocre and I am being kind. Maybe we play Florida in The Toilet Bowl in St. Petersburg on December 26 and I will be back in South Florida but would have zero interest in making a 4 hour drive to see a team that has lost its way and is badly coached. I know the staff will stay the same so I am at that apathetic stage love my Canes 4 life will be a season ticket holder as long as I have air in my body and means to go its in my blood, but I am Beyond Out on this coaching staff especially the ones making the major decisions.

Too many bubble screens and not enough targets once we turned into psu with the 2 TE formations, cuz he's not much of a run blocker like PD4 and Malcolm Lewis

SinisterCane

Do you realize that we finished last in the Coastal?

CoCane

Uh... So you didn't read where I said too bad J. Coley doesn't use them properly?

S. Coley had a early setback with the injury. When he gets healthy, Berrios was getting too much of his PT to get in a groove. Berrios can be a good one but he isn't the game breaker that S. Coley and Waters is. He hasn't showed enough to be playing over them. He was relegated to too many WR screens. Misused and underutilized. Duh...

F.U. for even thinking you know more than us. We don't care about your enjoyment of the game or the time or money you spend supporting the team. We just want you to accept what we are and continue shelling out money to not go back into the football program. If you dont like it support another team.

SinisterCane

It time to cut ties with Golden

YooperCane

I wouldn't be surprised if recruits start to jump ship after this debacle. I am sure that they will also see the writing on the wall!
