BigWindyCane1

Canes coaches Carroll and Ice have been attending Central games. Ice likes Jones and they offered him. If they get Jones, it might help with Phillips too.

From the "Palm Beach Post" article posted earlier....

"Golden on Part 2: Golden said he wouldn’t be able to watch the live version of “The U Part 2,” which debuted nationwide Saturday night on ESPN."

Golden doesn't want to see a coach he wishes he could be.

Just finished the U pt 2.

It was really, really awesome. So many incredible memories of games I've been to and players I watched grow into what they became.

It is the most unique and special brand of our lifetime, in an my sport at any level.

So proud to love the Canes.


Sarasota 'cane

Butch! There is no substitute for what ails us!

Canezitis

Just watched the U2 and it's sad to see us fall to the mediocre state that we are in, but I understand. The cloud WAS a real issue and is slowly working its way out as players graduate. This team can be special going forward.
For Al and his hold on the team it cannot be understated how important this bowl game is for recruiting and momentum going into the offseason. With the talent we have on this team and a Ken Dorsey clone at QB next year I will expect at least 10 wins. Any coach should be able to get that with what we have coming back next year in the conference we're in. I think Al is gone next year, however one way or another. He sucks he's fired, he wins big he leaves for easier pastures.
THEN BUTCH COMES BACK! Haha

Love the ending with the 6 Championships and then the LATE penalty flag.

I was AT that game... it was unbelievable how late that flag came out.

Wish they had included the Orange Bowl 58 game home win streak in those ending stats.

Let's Go CANES!

It's true, what others have already said...

Those Billy Corben 30 for 30 pieces are a HUGE recruiting tool for our school & coaches. You can't BUY that kind of exposure.

Before the Hurricanes came back from the brink, they were as low as they are now. Miami’s mid-to-late 1990s deterioration reached its nadir at the end of 1997, the program’s first losing season in 18 years. When the final whistle blew on that campaign, Miami had a +3.8 Elo rating,1 which means Miami would have been favored by just 3.8 points against an average FBS team on a neutral field. To use 2014 teams as a comparison, Miami was the equivalent of this year’s Colorado State or Navy teams — a far cry from their dominant squads of the 1980s and early 1990s. (Although this year’s team is even worse, with a rating of +2.0.)

For as depressing as that was to watch, don't lose sight of what I think is the most important take away... The U, no matter how bad it is, will always be within arms reach of dominance. The most important resource in football is in our backyard.

Posted by: roachcane77 | December 14, 2014 at 08:25 AM


It's absolutely true. For one thing, Corben did a good job. Few of the original 30 for 30 episodes can stand up to "The U." It's really on a par with a good-quality piece by NFL Films.

But also, the subject matter is one that people will watch. It appears that ABC showed "The U" in the middle of Saturday afternoon as a courtesy to the football junkies who didn't want to watch the Army/Navy game. And I'm sure that not everyone who took them up on the offer was a pre-existing 'Canes fan.

As dominant as Alabama is over college football right now, it would be completely stupid to make a movie out of the team twenty years down the road -- much less TWO movies. Because it's just standard college football, done really well.

The 'Canes, though, were NOT LIKE other football teams. There was some thuggery, yes -- but Oklahoma and Nebraska had plenty of thuggery, too. People call it "swagger," what made them different. But it's beyond confidence and cockiness, because they were dead serious about their football. They were playing for the high of just messing opponents UP. BAD.

And they were "blacker" than anybody else. At a time when America was learning to love hip-hop music, there was also a team dominating college football that was way, way more urban than anybody else. Those guys didn't even bother to act like "blue collar, lunch pail guys" like the sportscasters always said they loved. F that.

So Corben's documentaries are well made, and they're actually about an interesting topic -- not just about a couple decades' worth of good football teams at a small private school. They make it possible for a new generation to GET what it was all about.

If, eventually, Miami wants to stop being just another (bad) college football team again, there will be some players who want to sign up.

Hear all those former players talk about UF and FSU negative recruiting during the cloud and how it affected kids? They must just be towing the Golden line, eh?

So after a few days to cool off, you're back on Al's side?

Posted by: dj moonbat | December 14, 2014 at 10:18 AM

I don't understand why you have to be "On Al's side" for pointing out how much the Shapiro fiasco further decimated a program that was already in very bad shape.

It's ok to acknowledge it and still feel change is necessary.

Oh stop it! Stop making so much sense already.

Accepting the FACT that "The Cloud" had anything to do with the team's struggles over the last four years just gives people one less reason to hate Al Golden. And we ALL know how much fun hating can be now don't we? Why it is practically a sport of its own, isn't it?

Wasn't a "defend Al, the coach" post. Was a "defend the staff as recruiters" post.

Butch got his time. Give Al his! We don't have a choice for another 5 years. Might as well accept it.
