Kosar was probably tipsy at the interview with Folden. After Folden reached page 20 of his 300 page binder Kosar was like forget it, higher him.

C'mon Soup.. You can't call me foolish and not tell me why? How am I wrong?

The Dude

How much of that money has to go to Sunlife? Can a university negotiate with another coach even if the current coach is under contract? It maybe considered somewhat sleazy but maybe Miami doesn't want to fire then hire as the next guy might hold them over a barrel. It's all way hypothetical but I wonder if Butch would take much less than he's worth while having to keep most of the staff?

2015 just got started half an hour ago in Germany with fireworks and all. May it be a good one for all of you and a special one for the Canes!

The sunlife contract isn't public, but it's 25 years is flexible.

A school can talk w whomever they want, it's usually the coaches who don't want to talk to the school before the previous guy is fired.

I've wondered whether butch would give Miami a hometown discount, but the truth is after UNC I think his value has decreased anyway.

1. They would fire him now if they didn't have that contract.

2. Ugh. I never would have hired Al Golden.

Posted by: The Dude | December 31, 2014 at 09:44 PM

3. I can't believe they bent to the will of Golden's agent but not Gruden's.

Posted by: The Dude | December 31, 2014 at 09:42 PM

4. Al was hired by the AD, Kosar and Dimare... You'd think Kosar could've seen thru the BS but I guess Al is that slimy.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | December 31, 2014 at 09:47 PM

1. Maybe, maybe not.

2. At the time it seemed like a good hire.

3. Gruden? Seriously, are we talking Gruden?

4. Maybe this is true, maybe it is not, but U have no evidence and U were not there.

And even IF U could have been there then U would have been impressed with the binder and the pillars. I know U will never say so but that was an impressive PR campaign no matter who questions it. Maybe the PR did not materialize into productivity but the PR was there no doubt.

The Dude

2. It didn't seem like a good idea to me.

3. Yeah, woulda, coulda, shoulda but as of right now the thought of what could have been is much more appealing than the current reality.

dj moonbat

There's a whole lot of people claiming to know what's going on -- or not going on -- behind the scenes, and to know the motivations of the decision makers.

But we don't know. We don't know whether the Board is doing its due diligence to rid The Dude of this meddlesome coach. We don't know whether they're actually laughing at all of us poor mopes while they cash their ACC checks. We don't know who they are considering to take Shalala's place, and what that person has to do with the decision.

I do know that it seems really, really weird the blanket of silence that's going on, and the lack of even a statement concerning the future of various assistants, much less any firings. Until a) somebody gets fired, or b) a statement comes out saying everybody is coming back, I am assuming that the situation remains in flux.

If I were to hazard a guess, I would say that relations between Al and Blake are not currently as simpatico as Blake's public statements would suggest. Blake himself is probably feeling some non-zero amount of heat demanding change, and Blake being the consummate stooge, would love to be able to deliver.

Whatever we're waiting on, it'll happen soon. It may be good, it may be bad, but there will at the very worst (from my standpoint) be an announcement saying the whole staff is coming back. Until then, I remain cautiously optimistic. Because I don't know what's going on, but it sure doesn't seem like the kind of situation that the Powers that Be actually want to keep on festering.

BigWindyCane1

I didn't realize ghis was true until I confirmed it
http://usafootball.com/blog/americas-game/st-thomas-aquinas-florida-leads-all-high-schools-four-players-drafted

Not all of these drafted 44 were highly touted out of high school. The Canes simply need to do a better job of getting it's share of that 44. canes are not recruiting a lot of these players. If they can get 8-10 of those in state future NFL players every year, the Canes will reestablish their dynasty.

BigWindyCane1

The large number of Florida players getting drafted does confirm what I have been seeing- Florida is actually producing more and more players-more than they did 15-30 years ago, and it gets better each year

Did you think I said that the admin wouldn't like to see championship football? I did not.

My statement, what you called "foolish", was that the U does not have different expectations for its football team today than it did 15 or 30 years ago. That the School never supported football to a degree that would warrant championship expectations. Do you disagree with this?

The above is fact. the floor of expectations today is bowl games. They do not even speak of national championships anymore. If you speak w people there today they will tell you that they believe Al is safe w bowl appearances.

Go Canes

Let me guess, the 314 and 28 we gave up to GT is still a disgrace and if we'd "covered the center" like a real school does we'd have won?

What losers who keep bringing up stats about other teams and how we did as good or better - bottom line we had a losing record! Get that thru your effing thick and stupid skulls! You can twist the teams and numbers any way you want and we still have a clueless and soft head coach! Changing coaches, coordinators, etc won't change or help as long as we have the pussy at the top.

My new years hope: fire al now; hire Butch on a five year contract with Lane Kiffin as OC and head coach in waiting

Yes, we're finally going to be rid of phony leaders like Duke and Denzel -- probably the only two players on the roster who consistently played at a level that could have earned them playing time during the glory years.

There's an essay that you ought to read, by Princeton philosopher Harry Frankfurt:

http://www.stoa.org.uk/topics/bullshit/pdf/on-bullshit.pdf

It begins with the fantastic opening line "One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit." And it goes on to provide a thorough analysis of what bullshit IS: statements made without regard for their truth value. Lazier than lying, where the speaker tries to represent something falsely, the bullshitter seriously doesn't care what the underlying reality might be.

Everyone should read it. Blog participation will never be the same.

Happy New Year, all! Even if things suck right now in the Gables, it's always good to be around the most sensible Canes fans on the internet. We've mostly kept out the personal attacks on Golden and stuck to the actual facts of his coaching, unlike a few sites. My guess is UM isn't listening to many on message boards, twitter, etc. but I'm sure that when change happens, this won't be forgotten.

Watching the Baylor, Michigan State game two well coached teams it makes me sad to see the state of the []__[] right now. I think I'll agree on the fact that Al Golden and his staff are severely lacking a player development at this point. I am tired of seeing players progress and I'm tired of seeing the same bad game prep, and zero halftime adjustments. Ever.

Nothing but chicken wire around the hundred mile border. Here comes the under the radar not rated and juccos to fill out the rest of the slots we have left in recruiting.

**This might be tough for Canes fans to swallow. From everything I have been told on Tim Irvin, his heart is in Miami, but it is unlikely he winds up here. Multiple people around the Westminster program tell me that Texas and Auburn are basically his final 2 with Miami on the outside looking in. As I've posted on here a few times, Irvin's biggest question about Miami is his potential position coach Paul Williams.

**Miami has felt for a while that they would hold on to Jordan Scarlett despite rumors of a decommitment swirling since around the FSU game, but that seems more and more unlikely by the day. The school to look out for here is UF. Miami knows they are a real threat and Scarlett has been telling kids that the Gators have made a move for him. The end of Miami's season really hurt their chances with him. The Canes will get his first visit so unless they lock him up their and he shuts down his other visits, it will be tough to keep him.

**Potential decommitments from Scarlett and Dexter Williams leads to an interesting situation - would Miami make another run at Jordan Cronkrite? That is within the realm of possibility. Communication between the two sides have not been active recently, but there is no denying Miami likes his talent and character a lot. The real question is would Cronkrite listen? I think there is a decent chance that he would, although Miami would really need to clear the air about what happened earlier in the process. There is a chance those bridges might be burned, but we won't know until Miami reaches out. JaQuan Johnson has been in Cronkrite's ear all week at the Army All-American bowl practices.
