1st ever grassroots football fundraiser for the univ Miami sports program by the athletes. I think we can raise 25 million :)

Alonzo Highsmith ‏@alonzohighsmith 13h13 hours ago

Doesn't look like the school is going to do anything of significance for the sports program so we will do it ourselves !

Alonzo Highsmith ‏@alonzohighsmith 13h13 hours ago

We built the school into a national brand and received basically nothing in return so we will build it ourselves !

Alonzo Highsmith ‏@alonzohighsmith 12h12 hours ago

Just had a guy message me and willing to donate 5,000 bucks when we set up the Build the U private fund!

Alonzo Highsmith ‏@alonzohighsmith 12h12 hours ago

Former Miami athletes will be on the board of directors and already several have volunteered :)

Alonzo Highsmith ‏@alonzohighsmith 27m27 minutes ago

All you gotta do is use Baylor & TCU as models and both private schools I think.

What a phuckin' flip flopper. Not too long ago, the same person blaming the fans today, said that it didn't matter if we went to games or not...said that the TV money, & conference revenue sharing, would take care of lack of attendance.

But now since Captain .500 is doing Captain .500 things, it's the fans fault

LMAO!

Unbelievable.

I get it. My relationship with 'Canes football is a little different.

When I was a teenager, I loved 'Canes football and Van Halen. Van Halen stopped making good records, and I stopped listening. If they had made good records again, I would have bought them and gotten excited about doing so. But they didn't.

I believe the 'Canes are at a turning point. They've made some mistakes over the last decade, but I don't believe the administration has been deciding to suck ON PURPOSE. I think -- I fear -- that they are about to decide that keeping Al Golden, being mediocre, and cashing the ACC checks is the wave of the future. I can't bring myself to get excited about that future.

I dunno Go Canes.... Market forces will eventually determine what happens. If enough people like you keep buying tickets, why would they ever change? On the other hand if enough people like me stop buying tickets, maybe they will. Maybe.

They're making money now. If that stops maybe they'll take action.

If you'll notice I stated before the phenomenon of the recent TV deal. Ir did you miss that part?

Why do you think for the 25 years plus before it our facilities were dog crap while every other big time program was doing massive upgrades to their stadiums, building top of the line facilities and paying their coaches millions.

The problems this program has have been building for decades.

We are just now trying to catch up.

The future looks very bright for UM basketball! Could coach L be lured away from Miami? I sure hope not.

Anyone agree with me that Lecomte is better than Rodriguez? Lecomte has impressed me the most so far this season,he seems to be a lot quicker that Rodriguez. Rodriguez seemed a little slow last night.

I know Jakiri doesn't want to get in foul trouble but he needs to be more aggressive around the rim, especially defensively! There are many times where he doesn't go for the block shot but should. Hopefully when Udeno comes back, he'll be more aggressive.

So UM not too long ago, just started using the internet to accept donations?

"To reduce friction and facilitate the giving process for donors, Miami Athletics moved away from using their current ticketing system to accept donations and worked with Pursuant Sports to develop a payment form integrated with the University’s Advancement Computer Systems."

Here's something to give U guys some hope:

IF they were going to go after Cristobal as HC, they wouldn't announce it until after Bama's season is over, IMO. Therefore, Golden won't be fired until after Bama's season to keep recruiting momentum and no downtime in between firing and hiring.

The silly season is in full swing. The AD says the board didn't meet, but some say it did. The paper prints donors aren't happy but will defer to the administration, then again some say the board has the final word. Golden is here forever, but he could be gone by last night. The board continues to evaluate, but they aren't going to do anything. $5mill to buy out the staff, unless it's really $8mill or $10mill. At this point I don't know what to believe.

Terrance Sullivan

LMAO FIU was 2-10 in 2012 with Mario Cristobal as head coach his last year there. These Cristobal lovers are funny hahaha.

If/when we do get a new HC, I don't think He has to be a UM guy either. Larranaga is from The Bronx, did ya'll see His pre-game speech last night...He made me want to get out there, and cross WWIM @$$ UP! WWIM?

UMike

yea I dont understand the obsession with "Miami guys" as coach

TheeMackJones

When has Hurricane football had a " Miami guy " for head coach!

The absolutes are that he be a ' legitimate ' head coaching material. Which Carpetbagger NO. 1 isn't.

And that this ' outsider ' head coach DOESN'T mess up the style of South Florida prep ballers. SEE defensive style and philosophy, for instance.

It's a pretty cogent case. Cristobal wouldn't be my dream coach, but I can see how it could work. I think it's very unlikely he would finish year four with a record worse than 28-21, and he would probably run a real defense, so that's improvement right there.

TheeMackJones

Bottom line is this: It's now a FAIT ACCOMPLI that Thee CARPETBAGGERS will be hanging around Coral Gables another season.

In other words, that AD has given Miami, Florida Hurricane football the DEATH PENALTY with the uttering of a couple of sentences!

And seeing that there will be MAJOR losses on the defensive side of the LOS. In addition to losing the Major Troika on offense. Cane fandom are probably looking at a " 7-5 " season in '15.

Also, U can include the tangibles of 2015 opponents returning the MAJORITY of their starters and the VAST MAJORITY of head coaches next season CHECK MATING Thee Carpetbagger's.

And I vividly recall the MAJORITY of Hurricane football bloggers ( M-H, ioftheKane and Canespace, for example. ) opining that CARPETBAGGER No.1 would be a VAST improvement over that Onion Head. Still SMH.

Yet in year number four Miami finishes . 500 in a very, very WEAK Coastal division and Carpetbagger NO. 2s defensive unit has NINE starters whom are juniors or seniors. Go figure.

By the way, what happened to Kamulu. Dude didn't get more than a handful of snaps against mighty Virginia and college football powerhouse Pittsburgh.

I wonder if he ended up in Thee Carpetbagger's dog house and what not.

FWIW... I SEE-r some transfers after the bowl game! So No.1 Carpetbagger will throw out the NO DEPTH excuse, again.

Those four INTs against hapless Florida probably cost Winston the award. LOL

All I know is Carpetbagger No.1 and Carpetbagger No. 2 DON'T want to meet MIGHTY Florida in some OBSCURE fourth-tier bowl. Because with that Gator defense and Florida's offense facing Miami's defense. It could be the Canes second losing season since 2007.

Posted by: CaneRock | December 03, 2014 at 01:47 PM


The whole point of Title IX is to make schools WANT to have good women's teams.

Ohio_Cane

Adelson says it's Miami.

Forget for a minute that Miami was the preseason choice to win the Coastal Division. Failing to make it to the ACC championship game (again) classifies as a disappointment nearly every year. But the reason Miami is the biggest disappointment this season has nothing to do with failing to meet those expectations.

They were too high from the start. The reason this team disappointed so much is how it played, especially to end the season.

Miami has no business being a 6-6 team. Not with a dominant running back in Duke Johnson. Not with a Butkus Award finalist in Denzel Perryman. Not with a Mackey Award finalist in Clive Walford. Not with a rising star in quarterback Brad Kaaya. Miami had seven players recognized on the All-ACC team as first- second- or third-team selections. North Carolina had three. Talk about underperforming.

Especially when we saw exactly what this team was capable against Florida State. Miami played with heart, it played with conviction. It played with passion, it played with a purpose. But those moments proved to be fleeting. Once the Canes lost such an emotionally draining game, they seemed to give up on the season.

They were lifeless against Virginia, and listless against Pittsburgh, two teams Miami should have beaten. But as has become a trademark now, the Canes cannot seem to get themselves motivated for teams that mean little to them.

Getting up for Florida State is no problem. But getting up for Virginia and Pitt? That was a problem. Getting up for Duke last year? That was a problem. Getting up for Louisville in the bowl game last year? That was a problem. These are continuing trends, not just exclusive to this season. North Carolina has been mediocre two years in a row. But what does it say that Miami won nine games a year ago, and just six games with arguably a better team -- and a healthy Johnson for all 12 games?

The only way that makes sense is if you take a closer look at the intangibles that separate good teams from great ones. While it is true Miami coach Al Golden has had to fight the NCAA and depth concerns from the moment he arrived, it also is true his teams often look unprepared to play. That falls on him, and it falls on his staff.

Both have taken heavy criticism for coaching decisions, schemes, alignments and non-adjustments during wins and losses. That obviously is a problem, too. But players need to take accountability as well. It has been 15 years since Miami could roll its helmets onto a field and win, even if it gave half its effort. The Canes are not that team anymore. They have to win the way just about everybody else does: with a fighting mentality, heart, determination, unbending work ethic and an unstoppable drive to win.

Those intangibles were not evident for large portions of the season. So it ended in disappointment, despite all the talent.

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/77974/biggest-disappointment-unc-or-miami

j.w.

Don't disagree with anything Adelson says. The sad thing is all those intangibles are what made the U great in the 80's, early 90's and early 00's.

Looks like UF found a coach:

@APMarkLong: Gators charter has filed a flight plan to return home, leaving at 4 p.m. Eastern and arriving at 7 p.m. Assume McElwain will be on it

UMike

Seems like a strange hire.. but IDK much about that McElwain guy

Ohio_Cane

Here's stuff on McElwain:

His first coaching job in Division I-A football was at University of Louisville where he was the receivers and special teams coach from 2000 to 2002. At Louisville he tutored All-Conference USA receivers Arnold Jackson, Deion Branch, Damien Dorsey and Zek Parker. Also his special teams set a school record of nine blocked kicks in 2000–2001 season. He was then offered the assistant head coaching position at Michigan State when he followed Louisville's head coach John L. Smith there.[3] With the Spartans his coaching of the receivers and special teams helped lead them to the Alamo Bowl in his first season.[2]
Oakland Raiders

Jim McElwain's National Football League coaching career was very brief. After his success at Michigan State he was offered a job to be the quarterback coach for the Oakland Raiders. He was only with them for one year in which the Oakland Raiders ended the season 2–14.[3] McElwain was dismissed along with many of the other coaches on the team, including head coach Art Shell.[3]
Return to college football

In 2007, Jim McElwain was contacted by Fresno State, and he accepted a job to become their offensive coordinator.[3] While at Fresno State he built a powerhouse offense which ranked 38th in the country averaging 419.5 yards a game and 32nd in the nation in points per game with 32.9. He helped lead them to a 9–4 record on the year and beating Georgia Tech in the Humanitarian Bowl.[2]

On February 1, 2008, McElwain accepted an offer from Nick Saban to be the offensive coordinator at the University of Alabama.[4] In his first season as the offensive coordinator, the Crimson Tide finished the regular season 12–0; then lost their last two games to the University of Florida in the 2008 SEC Championship Game and the University of Utah in the 2009 Sugar Bowl.[5]

In 2009, his offense led the Crimson Tide to a 12–0 regular season record. They then went on to defeat the number one team in the country, the Florida Gators, in the 2009 SEC Championship Game. There his offense dominated the Gators number one defense in the country and compiled 490 yards of offense, more than twice the yards the Gators defense had averaged giving up all year. McElwain's offense out rushed the Gators offense 251 yards to 88 yards, 63 of those yards coming from the 2007 Heisman winner Tim Tebow. His offense put up 32 points and held on to the ball for 39 minutes and 37 seconds, almost twice the Gators total of 20 minutes and 23 seconds.[6] Alabama went on to beat the Texas Longhorns in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. In 2011, the Crimson Tide finished the season with a 12–1 record, and beat the LSU Tigers 21–0 in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game.
Colorado State

On December 12, 2011, sources revealed that McElwain had accepted the head coaching position with Colorado State.[7][8][9] A press conference was held at the Colorado State University Rams indoor practice facility on December 13, 2011 to officially announce the hiring.[7][8][9]

McElwain's tenure, dubbed by the school's athletic department as "A Bold New Era", began on a high note. McElwain's Rams rallied from an 11-point deficit to defeat arch-rival Colorado 22-17 at Sports Authority Field in Denver on September 1. McElwain became the first CSU coach to win his debut since Jerry Wampfler in 1970 and the first to ever win his debut against CU. The momentum didn't last long, though, as CSU suffered a 22-9 setback in their home opener one week later to defending FCS National Champion North Dakota State, the start of a six game losing skid. The program showed improvement towards the end of the season, winning three of their final five games to finish 4-8 in McElwain's first season.

McElwain's second season with CSU was much more successful. CSU would begin the season losing their first two games, both of which they had led in the 4th quarter. However, CSU finished the season winning 8 of its next 12 games. McElwain finished his second season with a record of 8-6 after CSU's miraculous comeback win in the New Mexico Bowl.

His third season with CSU led to even greater accomplishments. After a Week 2 loss at Boise State, the Rams reeled off 9 straight wins, climbing as high as #21 in the national rankings, and being in the conversation for a possible New Year's Day bowl bid. Those hopes were dashed, however, in their final regular season game at Air Force, when the Falcons hit a game-winning field goal as time expired, finishing CSU's regular season at 10-2. Notwithstanding this loss, the Rams were noted for a powerful offense though out the year. Colorado State averages 498 yards per game (13th best in the nation), while boasting the nation's second most efficient quarterback in Garrett Grayson and the top receiver by yards per game (149.1) and touchdowns (17) in Rashard Higgins.[10] Under McElwain, the Rams were one of only two Group of 5 teams with victories in 2014 over two Power 5 conference teams, defeating both Colorado and Boston College.

As a result of the successful transformation of the program, McElwain was named the Mountain West Conference's coach of the year on December 2, 2014.[11]

Doesn't hurt to ask for him, but for that reason Go I'd be shocked if he took the Nebraska job.

1. If you ask Al's agent, he may tell you he already did. Listen out for news on the extension on the already unwarranted extension to 2019.

2. Of course he wouldn't, remember Miami is a destination job. LOL

Maybe Paul Johnson if he's sick of Ga. Tech (yes, I know he is talking about an extension with them).
