A Lot of talk yesterday about whether the admin even wants football to be successful. I'm sure if you asked Donna she would say YES! Win a NC... She is just not willing to do what it takes to run a successful program. There is no denying that she has tried to run it on the cheap. Does she want football to suck? No. Is she willing to do what needs to be done for football to be successful? No.

At the end of the day the state of the program is The fault of no one but Donna. She makes the decisions. Approves the budget etc. As good as she has been for academics, she has been bad for football. Not out of spite, but because her priorities are different. One could argue that her priorities are where they SHOULD be. I'm sure she would rather cure cancer than win a 'ship.

With that being said, do you really want her to pick AGs replacement? Her track record is horrible and you know she would just chose another third rate unknown. We may be better off with Al sticking around... Even though next year will be a complete disaster from recruiting thru Ws and Ls.

Yes, Go Canes, you'd make an excellent Enron employee. []_[]

Go Canes

I will watch every road game, even go to one if I can, and attend all or nearly all home games regardless of who's coaching.

@smillerdegnan: Newest version of my newest story: Miami #Hurricanes likely headed to β€˜second-tier’ bowl http://t.co/EMe7Idg0WJ

The Dude

I will not watch a single game in 2015 if Al is our coach.

SJMPARMAN

I don't think they are going to do anything to be honest with you all. Some of this is bad timing. Donna announced she was out of here and set an effective date of like June 2015. She made two mistakes hiring coaches and she may not want to make a third hire during her tenure that a new University President would feel obligated to honor.

Let's face it Blake clearly said already Al is coming back, record be damned. This University has given Al a pass every step of the way. He has fielded the statistically worst defenses in program history and no one was held accountable. The BOT doesn't care about championships, they want to have an NCAA clean program and they just don't want to field a losing team. 6-6 is not a losing team to them.

Al has sold them he held back scholarships in hopes the NCAA will accept it as self imposed punishment and then when they do then he can compete on an even level in 2015. That is why Donna said 2014 should be treated like Al's first year. At least that is my two cents. We shall see.

Ohio_Cane

If they endorse him, it wouldn't surprise me for him to keep D'No around until after NSD, based solely on the recruiting relationships, then fire him before spring camp.

Jmo

Ohio_Cane

TD, IMO, yes. If he's being fired, has to be sooner than later. If they're going to endorse him, it has to be sooner than later. First weekday after the game has to be it.

SJMPARMAN

No there is still talent on the team but the deficiency remains. It doesn't matter if you have 4 star linebackers if you don't have at least 1 - 4 or 5 star defensive lineman. That has been the deficiency. We can't shut down the run with the front seven alone. You get a beast on the line and you go a long way toward solving that problem. But Shannon didn't do it although he had the recruits to do so when he was fired and Al Golden hasn't brought in anyone who could remotely be called a beast on the DL. Until that situation changes, it don't matter who coaches the defense.

The Dude

If anything happens it happens tomorrow?

BEERicane

^^^^now what did @TheRealBennieBlades36 say? Lol

The Dude

^^^ haha

Ohio_Cane

@BennieBlades36: #CanesSupporters, I love your passion and I respect your high standards and expectations for @CanesFootball. They mirror mine! I read your comments to my Tweets, and there are hundreds re: @GoldenAl, coaching in general, 2014's 6-6 record, recruiting, etc. I've been around enough sports to know that sometimes there's a perfect storm and other times, it simply takes time. This program is 'rebuilding'.I believe that they are committed to winning and will work hard to achieve that goal. @BennieBlades36: Like you, I want to win and NOW. Until that happens, I'm going to be supportive every way I can. I hope you will too! #ItsAllAboutTheU

BEERicane

It needs to be announced TOMORROW that Golden has been let go and Coley will be interim for the bowl game while they find a home run hire as his replacement.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | November 30, 2014 at 10:34 PM

I wish! Hell Id settle for them announcing he will be fired at the end of his contract in 2020 at this point. Dude is a lifer.

WWIN

2015 team will have more talent than anybody on the schedule except fsu, so same situation as last year!

Don't be fooled into thinking all the talent is gone!

The Dude

Has Al already left for recruiting? It seems to me tomorrow is the day to announce if we are going to announce anything, even if its only a vote of confidence. All week sports radio and message boards are gonna go off. Does everyone argee that tomorrow is the day?

Ohio_Cane

It needs to be announced TOMORROW that Golden has been let go and Coley will be interim for the bowl game while they find a home run hire as his replacement.

Ohio_Cane

I am just sad. That's all I've got right now. Sadness.

The Dude

If Golden wins the bowl, can our stupid f*cking administration that gave him an extension for absolutely no reason extend his contract for life?

πŸœπŸŒ€

This team quits every year under old dirty dick sniffa

The Dude

D@mn all of you straight to hell for dashing my hopes in Golden to Nebraska.

j.w.

ESPN's insider account lists 5 guys as candidates, plus a number of others who are also candidates. I'm sure it will surprise nobody that Golden's name doesn't appear anywhere on the list.

πŸœπŸŒ€


I don't know who would hire Al right now. An Ivy league school? Syracuse maybe? The Pitt and Penn State jobs are not there, and neither is Temple. The other MAC schools know he is a loser. What job is out there for him?

Posted by: SJMPARMAN | November 30, 2014 at 10:04 PM


Too easy, planting tulips of course.

VA Cane

TC I love your facts.....but AlPa has not produced anything.....and he will not....he has shown us little or nothing while hunting the job of his
Perv/mentor JoPa, talking of books and folders that change the culture, talked about the Process.....and put a product on thefield that is the same since 2003.....unacceptable.....piss poor football....got to change!!!!!

SJMPARMAN

Al Golden's wife is from Lock Haven Pennsylvania according to Wikipedia. But there could be something to Nebraska AD Shawn Einhorst, who has never hired a coach before, throwing Al's name in the ring out of respect to Al who he has worked with and knows. It is a smoke screen because Nebraska just saw their team crush his team, and they would run Einhorst out of town for hiring Al. He would have to sell Nebraska fans on the cloud theory in evaluating Al and then note he has Florida recruiting connections and he could bring Florida speed to Lincoln. It would be a difficult sell to me.

I don't know who would hire Al right now. An Ivy league school? Syracuse maybe? The Pitt and Penn State jobs are not there, and neither is Temple. The other MAC schools know he is a loser. What job is out there for him?

VA Cane

But it's also true that nobody has been more handicapped by his circumstances than Golden, who spent his first three years on the job trying to manage a massive cloud of NCAA sanctions hanging overhead that killed Miami's ability to recruit on anything close to a level playing field.

Great article.....if you like excuses. I think Go Canes wrote this part....AlPa is not that good of a recruiter to begin with, and the poeple he brought here have not panned out. In short he has no real knowledge of the game....just a PSU pervert education career, Temple/New England/NJ/Ivy League idea of college football, and a soft white underbelly......he is not tough at all...he could not put fear in 3 year olds....he sweats like a pork chop and looks like a salesman of snake oil.....he is not a major college football power coach...never has been and never will be.

nice guy no coach....needs to get out now as he has no football knowledge.....where are the Defenders of The King....Lurker and GC.....all of a sudden you get under a rock when your KING does not come through....reality...what a concept!!!!!!

TonyCane

It's not hopeless, and a turnaround would not take as long as you think.

Your numbers are great info, but you obviously have never played this game. Al Golden is not a football coach...he needs to don a checkered sportscoat like Whimp Sanderson...the bball coach from Bama in the day.....to go with his orange tie.....he's a used car salesman, a furniture salesman, a mattress salesman....or security systems, or whole life insurance.....

He is the worst coach in college football with the worst staff ....players are not taught or coached...they are bad as well. It is hopeless with him here; there is no turnaround coming with AlPa....we continue to burn and descend into hell......Clappy, Onionhead, and Sweaty AlPa have destroyed a program......we may never come back...we are extinct at this time.....AlPa and his liberalism coaching are a CANCER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: VA Cane | November 30, 2014 at 09:22 PM

VA, you misunderstand me. I'm not saying that a turnaround comes from Mr. Golden. The next head coach...the right head coach...can get this program back to a 10 win level by Year Two easily. If Golden were to leave tomorrow and the right candidate came aboard, he would not find a team bereft of talent. Far from it. And people like you and others with actual coaching experience can speak to the fact that it is not being coached up.

I say year two because many of the notable coaches achieved great success in Year Two as they took over programs that already had good talent waiting for them:

Pete Carroll, USC (Trojans 5-7 year before)
2001: 6-6
2002: 11-1

Bob Stoops, Oklahoma (Sooners 5-6 year before)
1999: 6-5
2000: 13-0 (NC)

Nick Saban, LSU (Tigers are 3-8 year before)
2000: 8-4
2001: 10-3

Nick Saban, Alabama (Tide is 6-7 year before)
2007: 6-6
2008: 12-2

Urban Meyer, Florida (Gators 7-5 year before)
2005: 9-3
2006: 13-1 (National Championship)

Granted other coaches like Harbaugh or Briles took longer than two years, but they inherited programs that were more bereft of talent. Not in the case of Miami next year.

CaneRock

I'd be very surprised if NU hired Golden over Frost, or any of the other candidates on their list. But isn't Golden's wife from the Midwest, I know the wives play a big role in job destinations...

The Dude

Nebraska said they will not be using a search committee... could that mean anything?

CaneRock

ESPN said Morris already accepted the SMU job.

MDCane

Auburn fires DC (Ellis Johnson)so I guess the race for Muschamp is on between Texas A&M, and Auburn.

MDCane

I hear SMU coach is looking for a job!

Posted by: canerealist | November 30, 2014 at 09:18 PM

Chad Morris - Clemson OC is the leading candidate.

The Dude

So does anyone have any idea as to when something might be announced? Has Nebraska said anything?

canerealist

They need to do something fast because losing is not going to get more people in the stands or increase your brand image and make people buy more miami gear. At the end of the day this is entertainment/business... If you want to seep into irrelevance we can continue to take the same steps we have every 4 or 5 years. Something needs to change bc the status quo is not working. You cant keep doing same thing expecting different results. The CEO really has to know what he is doing. We dont need another car salesman or someone with next big idea. It has always been simple. KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid). Heavily recruit the state of Miami and train up the talent to NFL type players. COACH!!! TEACH!! REBUKE!!! TRAIN!!! This is what saban does and he wins every year.

thats what she said?

canerealist

We as a fan base see it clearly. I dont think any of us really liked the choices they have made as far as coaches. I dont think its a hindsight type situation. With the exception of Larry Coker, I have been against every coach since. Randy didnt have the experience and Al was too Penn state and lacked a real understanding of Miami. I wanted those coaches to win, but lacked major confidence in their picks. I feel like they pull names out of a hat or put them on a dart board and make blind folded decisions. I am ready to start seeing choices made that are in the best interest of the future of the program. Lets look at what has happened and make sober decisions to get us back to prominence. No more hailmary passes deciding the future of our beloved program. Get people who have the desire to win at all costs!

VA Cane

Any staff would be better as long as RL52 is not on it....F#@k that KILLER!!!!!

....I could move to Coral Gables tomorrow, keep the recruits with my dynamic and fundamental schemes, go through spring...........and have a winning record my first year!!!!

I honestly believe it!!!!!!

USAFCane


So apparently via Bleacher Report Al Golden is the number one candidate to replace Bo Palini at Nebraska.

Posted by: IraqiCane | November 30, 2014 at 09:05 PM

what if this got out early? Schools supposedly have a shortlist of HC. The AD link to AG, maybe it has been discussed and the player got wind and quit on him.

PLEASE!!!!!

watch out here comes another bubble screen! Patrick Nix is the perfect fit with what the current administration is trying to do. just let an incredible program crash and die.

Then its set:
HC Moss

QB Dorsey

WR/TE Thomas

We do not need RL involved with the program....his son is here...whats he going to contribute? I dont think much....he is small....and he is not ROHAN THE KILLER!!!!!

Ray Lewis was a great UM player....but his character is ZERO. He was knee deep in the Atlanta Murders and walked away with no penalty. Hell the league knew he was involved by fining him...they covered it up as well. He settled with family people....cause he knew he was guilty....I am not guilty I pay nothing and defend myself. Read the many articles, the evidence, the stories.....he knew what went down, was involved big time. Great player sorry ass person.....I bet he never got his degree...listen to him talk...its obvious. The worst thing I see is his references to God in that ghetto language.......God dont let dis stuff happen and go unpunished!!!! What blasphemy!!!!

go away Ray take AlPa with you; if you want him with the program, if you want to adore and worship him thats your choice.

Thou Shalt Not Kill......Ray was in on it and is a liar!!!!

Stay Away ray your character is NADA ZERO 0...you are a liar!!!!!

Melo stayed in NY for the bigger payday but he is paying for it every night.

Melo fits that offense, but more in a Toni Kukoc & Pau Gasol type of way. He needs a great 2-Guard to make The Triangle go...maybe Westbrook?

UMZed1313

Lol Patrick Nix

86cane you have become canefantasy now. I use to love the what if game until the cold hard truth crept back into my bones. I think Patrick Nix is coming next year to be our head coach.

Posted by: UMZed1313 | November 30, 2014 at 08:56 PM

It's funny you say that, because I like the current coach of the school those guys came from, Blake Anderson of Arkansas St. His offense was fun to watch when UM played em'.

NEXT!!!

86Cane

I know it is completely ridculous to even think it BUT I would pay some SERIOUS cash to see Ray Lewis as the next UM head coach!

I mean GOLDEN Canes Club kind of cash.

U wanna see somebody scare Jimbo Fisher?

U put Ray Lew, Alonzo Highsmith and Winston Moss across the field from him. I see Jimbo pee his pants!

UMZed1313

Never said the names I'm throwing out there are good ones just realistic ones plus it doesn't matter UM isn't getting rid of Golden I'd be shocked!! Plus UM never hired big named coaches and we won.

I have officially come down off the clouds! I am no longer canefantasy but canerealist.. Coker, Shannon, Golden you have suffocated my dreams with your suck. Thanks for wasting my time. Yea Tim Harris sounds like a good coach. Maybe the special teams coach at UNLV or something. that sounds nice.

How about we coach via conducting seances with the ghost of Vince Lombardi?

I am always pissed because there is a good coach that actually wants to coach at Miami and one that we can afford but I keep hearing that he is out of the picture...if we dont want to pay then why not go with someone who has already proven that he can recruit better than any coach we have had in the past. Its like being water boarded. BUTCH

86Cane

We are in a very bad position.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | November 30, 2014 at 06:18 PM

I am almost certain that is what she said?

The Dude

I thought Baylor gave Briles a huge contract before Texas even came around. I wasn't thinking that Texas even offered because he was locked up.

86Cane

If he were actually the inspirational sports psychology genius he aspires/pretends to be, UM wouldn't be 6-6 this year.

Posted by: dj moonbat | November 30, 2014 at 06:04 PM

There IT is right there.

dj moonbat

Wrong question Ohio, why would [Briles] come to a rebuild project really

Posted by: laquinton | November 30, 2014 at 08:31 PM


Because Briles likes to put the pedal to the metal, and South Florida is the motherlode of the kind of athletes who would make his offense fly.

I'm not saying he WILL come. But if he did, that would be why. Scoring like a pinball machine.

And there's other pedal-to-the-metal guys out there with good ideas but less established reputations and salary histories. Those are the guys I hope the U has the guts to go find and interview.

Because I'm not watching any more Goldenball. Period.

86Cane

Can The U absorb 2015 under Golden?

Posted by: The Dude | November 30, 2014 at 05:48 PM

NEGATIVE.

canefantasy

Briles wouldnt come here. None of the top coaches would. :(

I feel like I am going through the 5 stages of grief that Miami is dying or dead.

Denial - We are the U! all coaches can be persuaded with money??
Anger - AHHHHHHH!!!!! Al Golden stinks!
Bargaining - Al can do it!! he just needs a DC.. yea thats all he needs.
Depression - Cold shower. We suck again!
Acceptance - I dont know if we will ever get back in the current college football landscape and no clear cut direction.

and then I start all over again.

The Dude

If they don't fire Al, we'll all know where The U is, what they care about. They'll be telling us exactly what many of us have been thinking, The U isn't in it to win it. Then everyone can take what they want from that.

Questions to throw out there: if they do make a move, when will that move be made by? When would the latest be that they're going to address the coaching issues? Would they slow play to see if Al gets picked up?

86Cane

ESPN's Brock Huard said it best. A head coach had the opportunity to ' channel ' the heart breaking loss to FSU and lead his team to two wins against hapless Virginia and mediocre Pittsburgh. Yet Miami lost those two games and as Hurard mentioned. That's ALL ON Al Golden!!

UMZed1313

Also if you do talk coaching talk real chances like Butch (long shot) Mario Cristabol ( talk all the crap you want but he left for money and to learn under one of the best coaches of all time. Get over yourselves) Frost Oregon OC Memphis HC Forgot name Jim Grobe Turner Gill those are the type of names you need to be looking at.

UMZed1313

Ohio haven't you noticed half if not all these coaches people are talking are crazy and not even realistic. I wonder how long people have been watching Hurricanes football. Yes know not only is Miami going to pay 7 million plus to fire coach, but wait then go and pay 4 million plus for a new one LMAO. Please if tour going to even talk about coaches which I don't think it even matters because Donna isn't going to leave Miami with that contract to buy out then hire a new football coach before a new prez comes in. The way this will play out is the new prez will come in if Miami doesn't win next year he will want his own people in possibly to include getting rid of Blake James.

laquinton

Wrong question Ohio, why would he come to a rebuild project really

Ohio_Cane

Why would Briles leave Baylor where he's got them on the bubble of the CFB playoffs?

jcane

All I seem to hear is that Al isn't going anywhere, unless he chooses to. I am sad to hear this, as I find I'm developing more a more a sense of learned helplessness and have little hope for any type of decent return to prominence. I can hope that some changes in his coaching staff could be of value, along with some ability to have another solid recruiting year (if this is feasible, although certainly the way Go Canes said it is likely to be the approach, and anyone who thinks FSU is going to have an easy run the rest of the way is likely kidding themselves). The main issue to me is that past coaches were willing to learn along the way and make changes in style (ie JJ nobody liked at first as everyone feared he was just going to want to run the ball all of the time like he had at Ok State). AG hasn't yet proven this in even the slightest way.

Cane Since 1982

So fustrated.

canefantasy

well then if we arent going to pay the big bucks to get "THE GUY" like Alabama did a few years ago. I see only three options and I like one more than the others!

we will have to settle/hope we can find the next urben myer or gary patterson and not another/ the next Randy Shannon or Al Golden.... We havent had a lot of luck when it comes to our investments and finding the next up and comer in college coaches. If this was the stock market we need to find the next Google inc. before everyone else. Its hard to do! buy low and sell high is not easy!

or we can just continue down this road for years with Al leading the way to mediocrity. who knows maybe he can win a game against a ranked opponent in that amount of time. If he stays he must fire DC and hire will Muschamp. It would help tremendously with recruiting and do the same thing we did with James Coley at FSU.

If we are not going to buy a winner/spend money and we have struck out the last 3 times at finding a good coach, and keeping Al isnt an option than option 4 is best!!

Option 4 - Get Butch and hope he still has some magic left! He was cleared of the stuff at UNC. He is Miami Hurricanes equivalent to Bill Synder at Kansas State. He is the only solution to the problem. He will come cheaply bc of the mark on his name and he is a proven winner. Heck before he got fired he put UNC on the map in football. Beat the Hurricanes every year. He sounds the most exciting and best option to me.

I mean crap, how hard could it have been to say..."PSU got less sanctions than SMU for CHILD RAPE!, no way in hell we're getting the DP!"

Go Canes

One change that is possible and would love to see is signing Muschamp as d coordinator.

He'd be worth the $1million plus he'll command.

But I'd be surprised if he doesn't end up at Auburn.

dj moonbat

Art Briles just signed a ten year contract last year and is making $4.1M a year now. I'm not sure if Miami is prepared to make that sort of investment to get him. And if they are, just about every coach then is a candidate.

Posted by: TonyCane | November 30, 2014 at 07:20 PM


I am pretty sure they're not. Most of the names being tossed around are out of UM's price range.

CaneRock

"Dispelling rumors about your program getting the death penalty" may be difficult, but putting a good product on the field isn't...we make it seem like rocket science.

And PSU received their sanctions in July of 2012, that right there should've lessened the projected outcome of "the cloud" - severe or otherwise - in the minds of the coaching staff & recruits.

And why the hell weren't we more proactive in expediting the process anyways...hell, even hard@$$ed Paul Johnson let His players wear wristbands protesting the NC-Double-A-Holes...

SinisterCane

STREETZ and Truth would come in handy right about now

mi@mic@ne

Back in the day when we played the man style we had practices where the oline was challenged and had to play their butts off. We did not let our guys get pushed back ... or give up five yards. The standard was that we needed to penetrate our big guys...shed blocks.. we contested the line of scrimmage.

We had practices that were fast...faster than the games... the techniques were passed down to the freshman...our d line practice getting off the snap quickly...it was impossible to block out guys because they were used to a different level of speed. So we got better and better as the game progressed. Most of the time in the 4th quarter we overwhelmed the opponent. It was because the coaches believed in this philosophy.

mi@mic@ne

The team is always gonna play according to what they focus on...alpo and dno focus on lane responsibilities...holding blocks..and position in the zone...these get our miami guys in bad habits... so we settled back into these bad habits in the second half of the FSU game. This is what Al believes and it doesnt work.

TonyCane

Get Art Briles - Baylor


Go make a splash! Get some spoiled fan base and steal their coach from underneath them!

Art Briles just signed a ten year contract last year and is making $4.1M a year now. I'm not sure if Miami is prepared to make that sort of investment to get him. And if they are, just about every coach then is a candidate.

We took VT apart...we were in a different league that nite...i saw something about this team.. we took that style and played FSU like the old days..but alpo and dno were not big enough to take use our speed in adjusting to what fsu did...then they were not big enough to get the team ready for UVA and Pitt...it was a good try but in the end they dont believe in the philosophy that put us on another level.

Love you guys using AlPa.....keep it up as thats who he is....AlPa without the perv JoPa was .....head in sand lying jerk!!!!!

got to be somebody out there who can get the bull by the horns bedsides Jerry Lee Lewis!!!!!

Harbaugh is a competitor, a winner a fighter.....get on your ass. AG andf Dno are jus like Miami Cane said dancers.....liars...pussies.....they are not tough guys at all....he came here with that rep....what a puss he has turned out to be. He does not know the game, he cannot coach!!!

It looks like the 49ers and Harbaugh will be parting ways at the end of the season. They want to trade him if they can. If he wants to come back to college he'll be everyone's number 1. If we could, we should throw a ton of money at him.

JIm Harbaugh would be amazing splash!

The one thing Golden and Co. have proven is they can recruit. What happens after they get here has been the problem.

GC i like your posts but you just cannot end your love story with AG and Co!!! top recruits should help programs get better with minimal teaching they got to know something!!! Look at Urban...redshirt frosh leads them to 11-1 record high ranking......dont like UM but he gets max out of young kids...Golden could not get the max out of anybody....he is a poor coach and his eye for talent is not that good!!!


Recruits have been average guys; there are no stud bad asses here!!!!
OL is soft, DL soft, STs are sad...DBs are not good in man...we do not tackle....those are FUNDAMENTALS that should be in place and recognized before you get here....not something you should have to start teaching from square 1!!!!!! My OL blocks better and my kids tackle much better...at 13-14!!!!....only real players are Duke and DP....Kaaya is growing, but I am not that impressed with the rest; very average...look at 6-6 record!!!! you are what your record says....average!!!!

Cook looks much better to me than Yearby....maybe he is not bright so he had to go to FSU....but he looks strong as a RB...missed again!!!!
