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.

Are you saying that this university at some point gave this team the level of support necessary to be a national contender? If so that's news to me. And everybody else.

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

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.

Absolutely... It's loaded up and ready to go! You'll definitely be awake to see the new year in!

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

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | December 31, 2014 at 09:43 PM

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.

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.

Yeah, but dat stuff is illegal and I don't go there anymore. I am home and safe and happy. Got the wife of 24 years, good home, and happy life. I have a struggling new career (so far) but looks to be turning out OK into the new year. I'm good!

The Dude

Did Blake and Al have their conversation yet?

The Dude

Posted by: 86Cane | December 31, 2014 at 10:24 PM

We can meet up in Colorado my man. It's all on the up and up that way.

How do u know I wasn't there? Just because I wasn't there doesn't mean you know I wasn't there.

I never said I thought it Was a bad hire at the time! That press conference, the manual... It was all pretty sexy! Then came the games. They're not firing him yesterday because football isn't much of a priority.

I want to know why u think I'm foolish to say the U doesn't expect much now from football nor did it ever...

Jones re-commits to FIU.

Because everybody I have ever met has ALWAYS wanted to win more when they can as opposed to losing less when it is avoidable.

Are U going to tell me that there are three people at UM that are completely different from that philospohy?

Of course everybody wants to win but everybody doesn't do what it takes to win! Big difference!

It's okay. You live and you learn, unless you're a bootlicker and in that case you keep buying lemons and eventually start making lemonade with em so it's all good! Lol

So Iggy Azalea just said nigga on tv.

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?

Go Canes

GT 560 yds and counting.

Under the assumption Golden is the coach in Feb? No. Top 20, maybe.
