If you wouldn't send yo own son to play for Golden, it wouldn't be right to send somebody else's!

If you won't send yo own kids to UM, why send somebody else's?

One of these days they're going to open up the HOF on the blog again for new admittances and you'll be on the top of my ballot man.

Attempted angry troll's sock-puppets will be claiming you're mad here in a few minutes and then we can all laugh at his sad mental state together for the last time this year.

How did the loser football staff at UM miss on Skai Moore? Desperately needed the rapists who showed up for cut rate football camp but never played instead for a Youtube series about loser defensive players rather than South Florida's finest high school players winning in college I guess?

TCU's Gary Patterson

Missouri's Gary Pinkel

Arizona's Richie Rodriquez ( Is he Cubano-American? )

Anyone of the LEGITIMATE established major college football coaches above would have been a MARQUEE hire after the CHIT-CANNING of one Lawrence Coker.

Again, Cane fandom are FOOLS if they believe the POWERS THAT BE give a U Know What ( Stolen War Echo from KW-II ) about Miami, Florida Hurricane football!

Happy 2015!!!!!!!!!

TheeMackJones

Coach Patterson's Horny Frog team is MOLESTING a " 9-3 " mighty SEC squad. LOL

TCU 28, Rebels 0... Halftime

Oh. A few seasons yesteryear TCU had the AUDACITY to win the Rose Bowl. Go figure.

And in Richie R's third season as Arizona's head coach the Wildcats finished 10-3 and play in the Fiesta Bowl today. SMH

By the way, the VAST MAJORITY of Wildcat starters are ex-TWO/THREE star high school players. Enter Arizona's LB this season. The FORMER 2-Star prep LB who's won NUMEROUS post season honors!

TheeMackJones

Albeit it's useless EMPTY chatter! FIRE the Golden Farce now and go after Butch Davis. And if the Powers That Be don't want to go near Coach Davis. Then SERIOUSLY PURSE one Gary Patterson.

FWIW... TCU is a PRIVATE university which competes with all those Long Horn state universities and even Boomer Sooner to the north for high school talent.

Yet Patterson doesn't seem to have difficulty winning games as well as bowl adventures!

I saw Ice and Carrol at a Central game. Central coaches were openly saying that Phillips was going to FSU to be with Cook because he stays with Cook's mom (and I think they might be cousins), but Ice and Carrol were there on the sidelines putting in work. They did put in the work to get him and Jones. They had a presence, which is more than I can say for Shannon's boys. If The Canes do not get Phillips, then I at least know they tried.

By the way, one of the great fallouts from the Shannon firing is that a lot of good coaches left UM and are now coaching and teaching football in South Florida at the high school level.

TheeMackJones

C P-Mitchell is probably playing the " middle-woman " role for most of the current Cane roster players.

In other words, what better SPOKESWOMAN than the mother of one of Miami's finest running backs!

CoCane

Thanks OGV. I'll probably be like Barry Bonds. They know I belong but keep getting snubbed.

I never get any credit. Even though I've been dropping superior football knowledge on mutha fuckaz heads since the days of Omar.

Now I'm being asked to verbally spare a giant female personal hygiene device. That proudly supports a power structure at our beloved "U" that systemically develops mediocre coaching regimes.

We saw it long ago. Tag teaming in our genius insight.

The debates now are just incoherent banter. The mutha fuckaz are just cheap!

Like that rich uncle that cries broke and asks you to borrow $10 before you even think of hinting at a financial favor

TheeMackJones

And believe it or not. The vast majority of major college football fandom take GREAT DELIGHT seeing the Canes become an INSIGNIFICANT football team!

I believe they call that PAYBACK or is that COMEUPPANCE of the Orange and Green sort.

Hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2015.

Happy New Years to all!

Hearing Strong at Texas fired his WR coach and TE coach. He has the balls to fire people right after the game or when he sees no progress and it's only been less than a year at UT.

I also keep seeing on twitter that Barrow was somewhat forced out as he didn't wanna cope with not being able to voice himself openly and didn't like the way Golden ran the offense with very little contact.

Next year Golden is gonna blame the smoke on why he is losing games.

To be fair, Strong has strong leeway right now. Despite the worst season in UT football in almost two decades, almost everything can be blamed on Mack Brown. UT fans (and very strong, knowledgable fans) here in Austin have faith in Strong. He'll be here for several years to come, so letting go of assistants creates no picture of a coaching regime in crisis. He has great freedom right now to manuever.

Golden is in a no-win situation. If he lets go of his coaches, he looks desperate, disloyal, and amplifies the image of a football regime that is teetering. If he stays the course, he's being stubborn and refuses to acknowledge the problem.

The situation is beyond toxic. It can only get worse. The ONLY way it gets any better for Golden, assuming he gets 2015 and the admin does as most think they will, Al probably has to win 10 games, the Coastal and a bowl. In other words the trifecta of this years goal, 1 year late. That would simmer things down. But with all of the turnover and how long it takes Mark and Al to train people to play in their scheme that doesn't work, well that's one hell of a long shot and is very VERY doubtful. If Miami doesn't do something they are sending a message that is LOUD and CLEAR that Miami is out of the picture playing at the highest level.

I posted yesterday that within every program there are problems. I was accused, of course, of defending Golden for saying that.

Losing magnifies everything. Big time programs like UF, Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan before hiring Harbaugh, Notre dame just to name a few are struggling. You don't think there are a dozen to 20 kids on each of those teams that are pissed about something?

Depth charts, homesickness, coaching issues, hirings, firings, losing, they all affect 18-19 year olds.

My question to this mass transfer rumor is this. Mark Walton is a Booker T kid, Scarlett a St Thomas kid, J Johnson grew up with most of these local signees. It's looking good to get a commit from PhilIps and Thomas from Central.

So if it's so bad, why are they still wanting to sign here? Dont they talk to their ex-teammates and get honest feedback?

Go Canes

Chad seems ok. Guess we can scratch him and Kaaya off the "Wants to transfer" list?

Go canes... I see you're point, that it's the same everywhere a school goes 6-7, but she was talking about this occurring after last season I believe.

In any event if there is a bad situation there I would t want a kid signing up just so we win some games.

If it's just typical post season BS she shouldn't say what she did... I don't think that's the case

Go Canes

You were wrong then and wrong now.

The real question is why I'm wasting my time arguing with a middle aged wanna be who posts like a 14 year old suburban kid trying to be a gangsta and who's idea of humor is name calling.

Despite the doom and gloom it is nice to see the young players sounding off and taking on leadership roles. Never had any inside info but know someone who knows someone close to Jacques Johnson and we're getting a born leader and class act by all accounts. Hope AG doesn't coach it out of him.

The Dude

Go Canes made the same mistake. The relationship between the HC and the fans, the administration and fans is toxic. The U and Golden are sending the message that they find 6-7 completely acceptable. The locker room? Well who really knows, I can say locker rooms are full of really competitive people, so individually most of them aren't happy with the situation. The problem is Al doesn't have everyone on the same page like a championship team should be. I think that's what all of these comments are telling us. My guess is roughly a quarter of this team has tuned him out.

They obviously don't find it all that unacceptable! The fans want NCs and the admin wants bowls... They're actually lucky it took so long for that gap to become evident... They had to fire Coker because he lost control of the team and they had to fire randy because of Shapiro... This is the first time a bad coach with a bad record didn't have anything else swirling around which required him to be fired.

I mentioned on the blog a couple months ago I happen to be around some current and former players a couple times a week... The impression I get is that what we suspect to be true is true, in terms of the locker room. I

CoCane

I've been saying it for years now. Lol

The Dude

I think if Al's contract were up, they'd fire him. Especially if bowls are what they want because next year Miami might not go to one. They panicked and made a really bad business decision giving an unproven and unproductive coach a huge contract extension that they didn't give themselves an out on. Now, the money, which I think is evident they have, outweighs their desire to win, which I think they do, just not at a high level. The university certainly has lower standards than the fanbase, much lower. I will buy that the university got more results under great coaches than they ever anticipated. It's sad because everyone knows Miami is a bunch of lying bureaucrats giving mixed messages to their fans, but the fanbase doesn't buy it anymore. Too bad Randy didn't "win enough."

The hire of Al Golden tells you a lot about who's running Miami. They screwed up hard. They thought they had Gruden and Gruden backed out. Then they got sold by Golden like a bunch of yokels at a county fair. It is a comedy of errors by Donna's people. They have no football acumen whatsoever.

The Dude

I can't believe they bent to the will of Golden's agent but not Gruden's. That is just beyond disturbing. People get fired for that kind of crap in business all the time. But who's left to fire? The ADs have all bolted for greener pastures.

1mg of Epi

Dude the frustrating thing is that a coaching change now, the right change, would boost ticket sales enough to cover the buyout annually. I posted te numbers before, winning seasons have 10k+ more butts in seats.

They would fire him now if they didn't have that contract... I don't believe he'd lose the job w 7 or more wins

Maybe. I don't think it would completely but if Al got a job I'm sure they don't have to pay him all of his buyout. Al is too young and engaging to not get a job somewhere. The fact that they are passing up a "golden" opportunity to hire Butch Davis is a huge signal to me that money is the bottom line at Miami. But they'll have to get all that money from somewhere besides the fans.

I doubt they ever watched a single Temple game. They met, they said now that guy has a plan and to Golden's credit he addressed many of the knee jerk issues with RS. They told themselves that he's a young JJ. They were wrong. The issue is they said hey, let's take a gamble on this guy but then like fools raised the bet with bad cards.

Ohio - do you feel we will end up with a top 12 recruiting class? You have good insight on that front. Thx bro

Well 10,000 per game @ $100 total revenue per seat would be $1 mill per game. The net revenue may be high (but probably not w donation, concessions parking etc) but that attendance increase is very conservative. The actual numbers from previous years was higher.

The money is there. They definitely are gonna have a bad couple years revenue wise because it looks like a lot of us are not renewing tickets. I won't spend a dime either.
