If you look ive never attacked a player...only in a game and i was frustrated...look there is no bigger fan than me ..i was in the ob in 83...if you ask me any questions about what the Cane philosophy is i can give you a correct answer.

The reason i have a hard time with this blaming is equal...offense and defense ...is not part of the Cane philosophy... we only won because we had a top 5 d....anyone who is an old Cane knows that blaming the defense on the offense knows that is a loser mentality. Go Canes has used this argument consistently..its part of the reason that we have accepted mediocrity.

Look our d philosophy is the problem on this team...period.

What does that mean, that the UM lawyers are holding everyone hostage?

Posted by: TonyCane | January 04, 2015 at 01:16 PM


Well, I guess they're trying to negotiate Al's number down, in exchange for some kind of amicable parting of the ways, instead of a full payment in connection with a straight-up firing. According to the story Vinn seems to be telling, anyway.

TonyCane


If you do bring back butch you make sure he has a young coach under him that he is grooming. So if it goes great when Butch steps away that person moves in. I don't mean an OC or DC because if you win they will be plucked pretty fast and may not want to wait around for Butch to retire. IMO of course. But this is all pointless because Golden is still here.

So Butch as the HC, Mario Cristoball as HC in Waiting?

actually I beg to differ. I think most of u bully Go canes around too much. what gives? r we I pre-school now; when someone's opinion is not popular, everyone gangs up on him?; even those without a thought out or intelligible point of view. everyone needs a whipping boy I guess. not that I haven't argued with him before either, but it was to a point, not to the man. so I don't do it everyday. hes consistently pro UM. Golden will one day be gone like all the coaches in our history. and what we will have left will be this U. and its wrong to support that? u all mistake or mis represent his position as been pro Golden when he stands up for the U & the athletes on the team, or most accurately, spin it to mean that to u can provide reasons for your tactics. well soup is also pro U and speaks to this consistently. but I guess going after the smaller target is a easier kill. some of U do it for laughs which is fine. but many of u do it for sport.
and for this commentary, I expect replies of Africane being Go Canes Boyfriend/agent/manager/twin. cue, on 1....

Would a 64 year old Butch be as effective as the version that took over 20 years earlier?

Posted by: TonyCane | January 04, 2015 at 01:15 PM


No.

However -- and this is really huge -- he actually understands the pressure of the Miami job, and he WANTS it.

TonyCane


if this sounds like rinse-wash-repeat it is because it is. The absurdity of it all is breathtaking. Like someone else said, I can't recall any sports team, Pro or college, that has ever been held hostage like this. But I don't blame Al here. The ones holding us hostage are the UM lawyers IMO.

mi@mic@ne

No i think we need an older coach with years of experience...he has more knowledge of all these different types of schemes ...but im talking about Butch as a package..recruiting...being able to scheme the 4 3 in the game not just the advantages of his style d... and knowing what kind of pace is to apply in practice because in his time before we went on probation and he resurrected the program..he never coached a team out of the top 5 lol

dj moonbat

Over at CIS, the truly gargantuan thread that started Friday contains this background (from a guy named Vinn at WestEndZone.com, who is not the same guy who started the rumor going):

===============
lol. Lots of feces being thrown at the wall here and at CIS. Let me try and separate the wheat from the chaff.

As I mentioned earlier this week, some BoT member and a couple of UM lawyers were going over with a fine tooth comb the language of Al's contract in regards to keeping or firing assistant coaches.

Al's agent came back into town for 2 days. He was also in town after the Pitt game when I thought we really had the best chance to part ways.

BOTH sides have tried to get out of the contract but BOTH sides want the better end of the deal. Al is digging in and won't go without the full dollar amount. UM up til now does not want to pay the full amount and believing that they are keeping him are trying to at least force some changes in his staff as they realize the status quo simply cannot be allowed to remain as is.

Al, while not off the grid, did fade into the background for a day or two. This is where I think the CIS rumor started to grow. Al gone quiet, his agent in town, the Mexican standoff being played out like a 3rd grade slumber party pillow fight.

Since my guy has yet to be wrong, I will keep riding with him. There is activity. There are contingency plans being made. There are statements being prepared. The one good thing about the PSU incident is that the UM folks now have a plan in place to be active instead of reactive, but with this group who knows that may be worse.

All the major players are due to be back tomorrow. Another push will be made for termination. Once again we will have to wait and see if the bean counters will give in.

if this sounds like rinse-wash-repeat it is because it is. The absurdity of it all is breathtaking. Like someone else said, I can't recall any sports team, Pro or college, that has ever been held hostage like this. But I don't blame Al here. The ones holding us hostage are the UM lawyers IMO.

I'd love to and hope to see Butch back. But saying "We are the only ones who can put together a plan to beat the Oregon spread" is asinine. In reality, we have zero chance of stopping any power 5 O let alone the best in the nation.

wvcanw

At this point Whipple would be an improvement

mi@mic@ne

Go Canes the only reason we come at you hard is because your trying to be coy..using words to trap people and not really accepting elephant in the room.If you dont win theres no right arguments to support it...you saw after the VT game i jumped rite back on the Golden wagon because i believe that game was the point at which Golden had become aggressive...so i put his pick up on my avatar ...but i was wrong ...he went back to that flat scheme....i even expressed my differences three years ago and tried to give him the benefit of doubt but i saw in the vt game that we can step it up to another level and it was Golden who put that fire out...BRING BUTCH BACK.

No you can't. Would be arrested unless you were a student there, even then you could possibly face disciplinary action. The campus is not public to the general public. It's private property.

RIP Stuart Scott. Had no idea he died until I read it on here this AM. Really weird thing is that last night I switched ends of the pillow (not sides, but moved from left to right). I then internally recited that line after realizing the other side was much cooler as well and then had an internal discussion with myself regarding the merits of applying his famous pillow quote to the contralateral side of the pillow. This is the first time I've had such s thought in the middle of the night, at least that I can remember. What a strange coincidence.

RIP Stuart Scott

Is there an announcement on Monday? Not expecting much. IMO some coaching changes but not D'No. New coaches to be announced.

"3 headed monster" huh?

Jordan Scarlett says he'll be hard to swing from his Miami commitment, but he's listening

Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas running back Jordan Scarlett said Saturday at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl that he is "85 percent" committed to Miami and will be exploring his options as the Feb. 4 National Signing Day approaches..

He is already plenty familiar with head coach Jimbo Fisher and his staff at FSU.

"I love Jimbo Fisher and he's been recruiting me for a while," said Scarlett, who ran for 1,224 yards on 143 carries this season and scored 24 touchdowns. "I like those guys in Tallahassee and I know a lot of them, and I'm going to go see how I fit in that scheme, as well."

VA Cane

Don't think he would go 9-4.....he has never coached elite athletes before...Duke is a great player, not necessairly Bo Jackson, but great. AlPa has never coached a superior athlete or team, and he is not a winner...knows nothing about coaching or winning....not experienced has not won a big game. Its funny, but I see AlPa destroying chemistry and taking that team 6-7...that's how bad he is. They could go 13-1 without a HC....just like when KD and Co won NC....Coker did not coach....just took up space and air.
AlPa is an athlete/program killer not developer.

wvcanw

Maybe we could raise money , put a college on the moon and give golden a huge contract to coach it. Problem solved!!!

Golden would go 9 & 4 with the 2000" cane squad

Nice to see Ben Rapistburger lose and take blame; fat head mole faced female abuser....almost got concussed....deserves it Suh should be suspended he certainly stepped on Rogers on purpose...dirty player shame as he is good. Cut block him hard, get a knee. Ditka said there are ways to get him straight...high low....right on. The worst is Greg Hardy...convicted of domestic violence....suspended but on the commissoner list so he gets $44k playoff game win....what bullshit. Guys like this are an embarrassment to human de ency.

That's like the jerkoff at Ft Hood. Yes he's locked up, but his family still drawing his check after he kills our troops....while yelling Jihad sayings. Try him hang him high.....Your President called it workplace violence....sounds like part of Islamic Jihad...lots of undeserving people who live wrong getting breaks in this world

Somebody posted a snippet of NCAA rules, and it looks like even coach-initiated calls are okay. No in-person contact, though.

Stuart Scott was unique.....cooler than the other side of the pillow to quote him. What a funny wonderful man.
God bless him and his family during a difficult and trying time. A fine man who had a wry funny quick and sharp sense of humor, yet was highly intelligent and had the ability to combine both. Peace and understanding for his family. Stu will have them rolling in heaven.

Ohio_Cane

He's been on the phone with recruits, because Marcus Lewis posted on Twitter he had just got off the phone with him. There is a rumor some kids aren't getting calls from the staff, though. It's weird. It almost seems like he's still recruiting, but not for UM

Posted by: CoCane | January 04, 2015 at 09:14 AM


He's not evil or anything. He's found himself in a job that's too hard for him, that pays him too well to walk away out of pride, and he's got nowhere to bail to.

BoT/Admin's incentives are similarly understandable. The whole situation is a mess, and the whole mess arose at a time when there isn't any strong leadership in place to deal with it properly.

Nonetheless, somebody needs to cut the guy loose. Maybe kick him in the neck just because.

I don't think Soup will shed any tears if Golden is canned before Signing Day. For that matter, I don't think Go Canes will, either. They just think the probability of that happening is much, much lower than I do, so they've started getting themselves mentally adjusted to another year of Goldenball.

I can pretty much guarantee that if Golden is fired, Go Canes stays disappointed for an absolute MAXIMUM of 24 hours before he starts getting excited like the family's golden retriever all over again.

Not that I want him getting hold of the rights to my fan club.
