Based on their bios I'm going to venture a guess they expend less than 1% of their time deciding whether or not they're on board with Golden.

"The coaches, they did a good job today," Sedrick said. "Man, what they did showed a lot of first class. The kid saw the importance of that - the first day the season's over, they're here at 7 a.m.

"For me as an uncle that shows a lot of desire, commitment for this kid. You could have been at Killian, anywhere else, but you were here. I appreciate that. They were first class today, and I respect that."

Sedrick added, "They were there a while, it wasn't a hello and a kiss goodbye. It was a while, man. They poured their hearts out, painted the picture.

"My input will be to let him know that was first class what Mr. Golden did today. They were like `You can help us. Look what we got here, our D coordinator, linebacker coach, head coach, what more do you want?' I told him when they do that, you're something special. Other schools have a running backs coach or defensive line coach that come through, that doesn't show importance."

I've always been leery of this guy, but TIFWIW...Brian London:

Monday night, as rumors were flying that Miami OC James Coley was considering the Kentucky OC gig, I was on my couch watching MNF and monitoring my Twitter feed. All of a sudden the phone rang. My caller ID told me that the person on the other end of the phone was someone I needed to speak to. Because they are not authorized to speak on the matter, I can’t reveal who the call was from. I can, however, tell you that this person is a member of the University of Miami’s leadership structure. I’ve known this person for a long time, and I know this person to be very passionate about the University in general and especially athletics.
So, when I get a chance to talk to this person, which isn’t as often as I’d like, I take it very seriously.

Here are some random notes from that conversation:

-Any decision about the head football coach at Miami will not be made by athletic director Blake James or President Donna E. Shalala. The decision will come straight from the Board of Trustees, with much of the say coming from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Stuart Miller. Miller, a UM Law School alum, and CEO of Lennar Corporation, is said to be very “authoritative and opinionated.” He’s also very passionate about UM Athletics. Miller’s father, Leonard, who passed away in 2002, was the Chairman of the Board of Trustees from 1995-1999. The elder Miller was on the BOT from 1983 until the time he passed away. Oh, and the medical school is named after him. The Miller family holds considerable influence at The U to say the least.

-Several members of the BOT have voiced their frustration with the direction of the football program. Don’t think they are deaf to the situation or you, the fans’ frustration.

-Despite reports to the contrary, there is enough money in UM’s endowment to both buy out Golden and hire a new coach and staff with competitive compensation. The question is, WHETHER THE POWERS THAT BE want to spend the money. In the past the old guard has been, for a lack of a better word, cheap.

– Several members of the leadership group were put off by Al’s absence last December and his pursuit of the PSU gig. Many people that were once big supporters became disenfranchised.

– At the very least there will be a heavy push for several staff changes, especially on the defensive side of the football.

– The belief that leadership does not want to win in football is not true. Especially as it relates to more recent members of the BOT.

-From the conversation I gathered that even though Blake James has given Al the vote of confidence, if the powers-that-be above Blake want a change, there will be one.

– I was told a decision either way would be made maybe as early as this week, but at the most over the next few weeks. Right now the people that need to do the fact gathering etc were doing that.

I've never thought Brian London was disingenuous, so I don't doubt the call took place. The cynic in me would say its just an attempt to placate the fans. The optimist in me sees a small glimmer of hope.

Congratulations to the six Canes that are all ACC. I remember just the last couple of years when the Canes were lucky to have one or two players on the all ACC teams.

Duke and Denzell on the first team, and Walford, Flowers and Dorsett on the second team. Also, congratulations to those 5 Canes that were all ACC honorable mention (if the Canes won more games, some of these would have made the all ACC teams):
QB Brad Kaaya, OL Jon Feliciano, OL Shane McDermott, DE Anthony Chickillo, DT Olsen Pierre, S Deon Bush

I'm excited about the matchup later tonight vs. the Illini. Illinois is at #24/25, and should be a good test. Providence is still on the horizon, and these are the main tough games left pre conference play. The only loss between the two thus far is by Providence to #1 UKy. Providence has played some non-cupcake games, including destroying FSU and narrowly defeating Notre Dame.

Hopefully all who can will support coach L and the very good Hurricane basketball team.

USAFCane

let me get this straight, Kaaya isn't 1st nor 2nd team All ACC? Winston is 1st team? Who got 2nd team ACC at QB. WHat TE beat out Wolford? O'Leary?

laquinton

Kid from unc. Marquise williams

Canezitis

My 2cents: I think we need to move sooner rather than later if we're going to fir Al so the next HC can save this recruiting class. Fire Al this week and hire Cristobal. I know people feel like he turned on us, but he left to work under one of the best HC's for more money. I'd make that move too. He made FIU a decent team-FIU!, and he he has a year of Saban philosophy under his belt. I think he's the perfect candidate to keep our recruits in south Florida as well. Let him choose the defensive staff- they all have to go and I'm torn about keeping Coley on as an OC. He's still learning on the job, but develops QBs and we'd miss him in recruiting.
I'm just so tired of being tired of losing I'd even consider Kiffen, but then I what a big tool he is and I come back to reality. Let's just hope the BOT make the right call and soon.

BigWindyCane1

Walford and Kaaya were snubs. I also think Bush was our second best defensive player before he was hurt and would have made a difference on key plays down the stretch. But snubs often happen, especially when you finish 6-6. An 8-4 or 9-3 record like last year and more Canes would be All ACC.

The sad part is that 9 of those 11 players on the all ACC teams and honorable mention are likely leaving for the NFL or graduation.

UMike

So Walford leads the all TE's in the ACC in the major categories, but is second team... oh ok

I don't trust anything PR coming from UM. They do want to sell tickets you know.

For the past decade, all I can say is, their actions speak louder than their words. If the brass wanted to win, then the []_[] would already be doing it.

Did not know we still needed to rebuild to beat UVA and Pitt. We want national championships but at least give us the coastal and we still haven't done it. We've been in the ACC since what?

Go ahead. List the coastal winners and show me how the []_[] is in it to win it?

Golden put all his eggs into the Kayaa basket by not red shirting him. Handcuffed him against UL for a loss and is obviously building for 2015 cause I think even he knows 2015 is definitely his last shot. What would you do if we go 6-6 or 7-5 next year and Golden is still here for 2016?

This is the stat I've been flogging all season -- and it wasn't at all a sure thing that Duke would finish 8-4 or better until fairly late in the season.

Four seasons, and one victory over a team of any quality whatsoever. And it's Duke.

I think it's safe to say that without the lengthy contract, the confident speaking about The Process, and of course The Tie, we would have had the 'going separate ways' press conference yesterday morning. (See? I didn't even mention that Al's w****!)

Per his radio interview Golden thinks we all need to R-E-L-A-X . He said the defense went from 90th to 15th. Redshirted some guys, Hamilton,Moore . Lost some guys, Figueroa,Mohammed,Jenkins and did a great job.

the D numbers again are a lie, I dont give a shyt if we jumped up to #1, we obviously couldnt stop BAD teams at the end of the year. We had a good run against 3-4 bad teams to make those numbers look good... any decent coach that game plans for our D will expose us because we are incapable of adjustments

Go Canes

I think a lot of anger is warranted but I think it's being aimed at the wrong parts of our team.

The problem with this program and it's coaching staff is their inability to do whatever it takes to win on a given Saturday.

Everyone keeps railing on the yardage give it up to GT etc...when in reality that's just what they do. If I had to guess Tech probably had more rushing yards against 80% of their opponents this year than they did against us, including the 400 they dropped on ninth-ranked Georgia this last weekend.

The problem is when truly great teams like Alabama and FSU give up 40 points they score 50. When they only scored 20 they give up 17.

In today's game great coaches find a way for their team to win any type of game, be it a shootout, defensive struggle or surviving an error plagued mess.

The Pitt and UVA games were a microcosm of that. We must have left 20 points on the field against Pitt. Perfect throws bouncing off a face-mask, ridiculous penalties at the worst moments, wide-open receivers being overthrown by 5 yards and a defense that never got off the field on third down. Against UVA we gifted them 11 points but couldn't overcome those errors and outscore them and win like a great team does.

Those kind of mental and physical mistakes reflect a team who's coaching staff is not preparing it's players to win by whatever means necessary every single week.

So yes the defense this year was much much better than last years. So was our offense for the most part. But neither was at its best when it counted the most.

All of that points to coaching, not scheme.

UMike

Go Canes, I agree with most of your post, a lot of great points. However in regards to the GT game we didnt have to give up all those yards just because that is what GT does. We play them every year, we know what is coming. We got beat over and over by the same exact plays because we refused to adjust. Most stubborn staff in the country. I almost wonder if the staff doesnt make adjustments because if they do and they work, they can no longer blame the players.

CoCane

I told yall 4 years ago. Golden thinks he is a genius. He truly believes he has designed the holy grail of defensive schemes. That's why he blames the players when it doesn't work and that's why he won't adjust. Yall are thinking too hard. It's soooo simple...

Posted by: CoCane | December 02, 2014 at 10:52 AM


I think this is largely right. He and D'Onofrio have developed a defense that supposedly has reads for all the possible scenarios -- and who knows? Maybe it actually does.

What this means is D'Onofrio can call WHATEVER, since it all comes down to guys making the right reads anyway, whether the play succeeds or fails.

Now, if you're serious about WINNING, you would make sure your players were always making the right reads, or you would simplify the defense until they always made the right reads and you would handle some of the if/then complexities in the form of playcalling from the sideline.

The Dude

Remember when he was hired? So underwhelming, I'm not surprised at all about our results. We got exactly what we knew we were getting, a guy that couldn't win the MAC, with the best players in the MAC.

UpNorthCane27

heres what pisses me off!!!

A school like Wofford gave up 226 rushing yards to Gtech thats almost 100 yards less than what we did smdh...

now rushing yards don't mean shit if your not getting first downs, but they were getting first downs on the same exact run plays over and over
