JRS or Sunlife, can get loud when full. But when it is not, it hurt having sideline fans thirty yards from the field. At OB, you couldn't hear when the crowd got up for a play. Let an OL false start and it got ridiculous loud. Never heard anything like that at JRS. I am looking forward to them re-configuring it for all football. It will make a difference.

I am really impressed by the athleticism of the canes and the depth of the bench...weve got some ringers on this team

Good win for the Canes. Going to be a really fun season.

Once the reno is done a state of the art Sunlife Stadium will be far less of a disadvantage it's been historically.

70-61, FINAL! Canes win!

First 8-0 start since 2009.

Ohio_Cane

Angel to the line, up 10. 20.5 left. It's a wrap. We 8-0.

Go Canes

Totally agree SJM, he was raw as raw can be. Larranaga has done a great, great job helping him developing his game.

I've never been to Coral Gables.. but I always read that they don't have the space. Some tropical park area I think was mentioned by Donna days ago..

All forms of exuberant human expression are unlawful in Coral Gables. A stadium is out. The U may find a better arrangement than the one they've got now -- it couldn't get much worse, right? -- but it will almost inevitably involve sharing space with one or more other teams.

Ohio_Cane

Canes up 10

Ohio_Cane

Canes up 8, 38.5 left

WWIM, Dalvin also wasn't penciled in as a Cane since 8th grade. Nor was he a lifelong Canes fan.

Yes, there are exceptions to that (Michel), but I don't see it happening with him. He's this years Duke Johnson, not last years Sony Michel.

KYcane

Here's a list of coaches not name Golden or Dno that should be relieved of their duties or demoted.

#1 Paul Williams - fire ASAP...Agree 1000% Maybe move Hurlie to Dbacks

#2 Jethro Franklin - fire ASAP...Agree again - thoughts on Kareem Brown moving into his position?

#3 Brennan Carroll...not able to comment on this since I did not watch WR's as closely - maybe some of the issue was Kaaya, not knocking him but maybe didn't make the 2nd & 3rd reads as quickly.

Posted by: Jmj56Ace | December 02, 2014 at 09:39 PM

#4 Don Soldinger...LB's & Special Teams. Not known as the world beater in recruiting but gets results.

JMO

Zo said it's to build a better Hecht center.

SJMPARMAN

Jekiri has really developed into a nice big man. I never thought he would do so. Proud of him.

Go Canes

Johnson has stated he wants to enroll early which is why he likely signed his agreement so early. Additionally, Cook may not have signed but everyone else who did the same thing did sign.

So it worked out pretty damn good.

SJMPARMAN

Let me add a thought here. The UM remains on double secret probation by the NCAA until October 2016 I think. The AD and the BOT have faith that Golden will not commit any type of recruiting violation that would invoke the death penalty before then. And believe me, we commit a major violation again and we would definitely get it. So maybe the university isn't thinking about Al in terms of wins and losses but is more concerned with riding out the clock of probation. This is the only reasoning I have for why a move wasn't made (and I don't expect one to be). Their thinking, Al may suck as a coach but he ain't going to death penalty us. We hire some coach we don't know, and he screws up, we got the death penalty stuff over our heads all over again. They don't want to go through that again.

Go Canes

Posted by: WWIM | December 02, 2014 at 10:39 PM

Great logic.

Da U N Houston

Should money raised be allocated to an on campus stadium or new coaches? I know I'm in the minority, but can you name one, ONE top program who shares a stadium with an NFL team. NONE. Coincidence?

Plus, it's a lot easier filling a 50k stadium then Sunlife. Yes, I know winning brings people out, and we are putting out a bad product right now, but be real folks in SoFo have multiple options for a Sat/Night.

And right when I say it, Sherman hits a 3 lol

Jmj56Ace

Could not agree more. Our WR's really regressed this year. I swore Coley had to be hurt, but looking back, he was running simple routes. PD4 just flat ran by people, never any play that u say to yourself "dayum that was a great route".

This is why our pass offense sucked against teams that played off and defended the deep stuff.

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

Interesting from Zo. What do you guys think

Ohio_Cane

Omar has shot a few too many 3's. Hasn't made one.

BigWindyCane1

Jaquan Johnson is the best safety the Canes have signed in a while. JJ is a real difference maker on D. A real leader. He will make the whole defense better.

Ohio_Cane

@InsideTheArc: We've had Sheldon, Angel and Deandre go for career-high's already. This is game 8.

"Al Golden Has Been Relieved of His Duties As Coach of THE Miami Hurricanes"

The New President Can't Take the Seat Fast Enough.. We WILL Have a New Coach Next Year....

jcane

Burnett is hitting some clutch buckets tonight, including a few 3s. Sherman needs to work on his left. When you have the open lane underneath, don't take it and then get forced to while throwing up an ugly shot....not hard to see. I'm sure coach L is working on it.

Ohio_Cane

Dre Burnett esta en fuego! 17 pts already. Season high. Canes on 7-0 run. Up 10. 12:50 left

KYcane

Golden: I’m looking at every facet of it, Joe. Other day we didn’t cover the ball well on kick offs. Punt coverage was good all year. Kickoff coverage post FSU wasn’t as good.

Posted by: SinisterCane | December 02, 2014 at 11:24 AM

Can't speak for punt coverage but kickoff coverage has been HORRIBLE!! all year.

Ohio_Cane

We scored! 4 mins into 2nd half 12-4 run now. Canes up 5

Ohio_Cane

9-0 run. Rice to the line for the +1. Canes up 4

Ohio_Cane

Illinois comes out on a 7-0 run.... Timeout canes.

jcane

This team is loaded at the guard position. I didn't realize that Uceda was coming back in January until the other day, which will be huge, as the front court will be the main area of need coming into the ACC action in 2015. Burnett is going to be a good one.

Nice little 8-2 run going into the half to pull further ahead after Illinois inched their way back in. Hopefully Coach L and his staff will be able to handle halftime adjustments and share this technique with other select coaching staffs!

mi@mic@ne

Canes are disciplined in their offensive movement and get the ball quickly to the weak side...that creates space for the big men and lanes to drive...you can see that Coach L is a detailed coach...

Ohio_Cane

If there's a better back court than this Canes team, I haven't seen it yet.

Go Canes

larranaga is a heck of a coach and has put together a very good team.

Balanced with several excellent ball handlers who can penetrate and either pass or create their own offense.

Ball never sticks, that's huge in the college game.

Ohio_Cane

@vrp2003: The Canes won in Charleston and Charlotte w/out Burnett, Reed and Uceda. Burnett back now, Reed soon, Uceda in January. Team can get better

mi@mic@ne

Really impressed with the Canes..well coached .. coach L is developing talent for the NBA..I think more kids are gonna wanna play for him..

Ohio_Cane

37-24 at half. Canes up. Deandre Burnett leading all scorers with 12. Freshman is good.

Ohio_Cane

37-24, 19 seconds left. Timeout Illinois

Ohio_Cane

Canes up 35-24, 40 seconds left in 1st half

Jmj56Ace

Here's a list of coaches not name Golden or Dno that should be relieved of their duties or demoted.

#1 Paul Williams - fire ASAP. Dbs can't cover find the ball or tackle with the exception of Bush. Not sure we would go after T Rob. However I believe Mike Rumph could do better than this guy.

#2 Jethro Franklin - fire ASAP. DL don't shed blockers, command a doubleteam, or beat their man off the snap. Kevin Patrick will be a very good choice to replace him

#3 Brennan Carroll - demote to special teams and he can keep his recruiting coordinator title. Wrs don't get open consistently enough with the speed we have at Wr there's no reason we can't keep the chains moving. Also he has turn our wr into smaller blocking tightends. There are better options in college football for a Wr coach. Particularly Lamar Thomas.

Tell me what do y'all think Canespace.

jcane

now 25-15, with 5:30 left til halftime. Gonna go back to watching...

jcane

23-15, the #15 U is leading the #24 Illini with 7 min. left until the half.

Now back to the regularly scheduled Golden bashing...life's too short to spend time on this, too, all, just like wasting time at the games if it just causes you chest pain.

Go, Coach L!

Go Canes

You all may go back to topping each other in ways you will no longer root for, support, be fans of or care about the Canes now.

Enjoy.

Go Canes

The other good news was Johnson signing his financial papers. Every indication is he's going to enroll early at a position of major need.

Unlike some of you I will be renewing my tickets and will be going to all the games. So forgive me for considering that information and our commited recruits climbing the rankings good news.

Da U N Houston

Man, our Safeties be 1000 times better by talent alone next year. Now we just need a DB coach to take them from talented skills to talented players. Pay coach T-Rob.

The only guys Golden needs to convince that he is a winner for now are the players.

What bloggers think of him right now isn't going to make a lot of difference.

I for one am eager to see the new personality of the team.

Posted by: solarcane | December 12, 2010 at 10:34 PM

I agree 100%. He'd better not give a sh*t what I think. I dont matter. I'm just saying in my opinion he's got a short leash. If we wanted 8 or 9 win seasons we should have just stayed with Shannon or even Coker for that matter. 7-6 under Coker is the same under Shannon and the same under Golden. Its just different packaging. I'm not gonna give the new guy alot of time. The talent is there. NOW F*CKING WIN NOW!

Well, I sucked it up and listened to th whole Joe Rose/AG interview.

Yeah, he's EXCITED by the direction of our defense. Thinks they're doing great on halftime adjustments... Can't explain what happened on kickoffs, but our PUNT coverage was outstanding. Blah, blah, blah.

It's ALL GOOD folks, nothing to see here. He and his boys have it ALL UNDER CONTROL. Everything's getting better.

Same old "coach speak."

20 minutes that just confirmed everything we've ALL been saying here. No changes needed... we're getting better!

Oh yeah, he WAS disappointed by the whole 6-6 record thing...

Jeesch!

WWIN

Go Canes.. I agree. IMO Spence is underrated and should be a universal 4-Star. Maybe it is off the field.

Posted by: UMike | December 02, 2014 at 03:09 PM


And maybe Spence thinks UM isn't very good, and somebody at UM wanted to get ahead of the story of his decommitment.

Posted by: dj moonbat | December 02, 2014 at 03:14 PM

He probably told em he's a pass catching WR not run blocking like Malcolm Lewis!

Go Canes

More good news. These two, along with Johnson who's already signed his financial agreement and wants to enroll early, are going to be very good ones for us.

@CanesWarningFS: Miami commit Mark Walton made a HUGE jump in the new rivals rankings. Went from outside top 100 to 61st overall & #8 RB. Top in Canes class

@CanesWarningFS: Dexter Williams also made a big jump, went from outside the top 250 to 114th.

Posted by: Go Canes | December 02, 2014 at 06:33 PM


I don't think there's any chance that BLAKE JAMES is going to save the Fire Golden movement, it's true. What we're waiting for is some hint that there are trustees who are willing and able to circumvent the usual way things are done.

Even if we assume James is fully informed about whether there's been a formal BoT meeting re the coach, that doesn't mean that various trustees have not been conspiring behind the scenes to make something happen. In fact, I would be pretty surprised if that were NOT the case. There MUST be at least a few influential trustees who are willing to do what it takes.

But I doubt that in the end, those trustees will win the day.

Although I'm no Hurricane men's hoops fan ( ARIZONA WILDCATS bUbba's. ). Miami made a grand hire with Coach Larranaga!!! An awesome hire.

Heck, unlike U Know Who. James was a winner at TINY George Mason and had the savvy to coach GM to the Final Four! Go figure.

laquinton

Wouldn't matter if they fired Golden or not the problem is hiring a proven guy who can recruit,develop and bond with south Florida talent and WIN.

Look at Florida right now. Will Muschamp could have had it right had he not hired Charlie Weis . But they fired him and went from Hugh Freeze (not a fan) to what looks like Jim McElwain?! 18-8 last 26 games at Colorado State, previous offensive coordinator at Bama. We have Michigan and Nebraska mentioning Greg schianao.
