Golden has said in the past he doesn't read what the blogs says and so on , if he doesn't read it him self , then someone is telling him (wife, friends) and we know the players and recruits are reading some of this ,its human nature to know what people think of you , HE has to know.

LB

By the way, there's something floating out there.

Manny Navarro supposedly deleted a tweet stating that UM had a 4 PM press conference not regarding the Adidas deal, because:

1. He didn't actually say it (troll), or...
2. He was told to take it down.

Per Canesinsight forums. I doubt the truthfulness at this point, but it's at least interesting.

Scarlett HAS to see the opportunity to come in and take Duke's role. Immediate playing time and/or starting on a team that just got Duke over 1600 yards, and most in school history for a career.

To hell with what he sees Dalvin and them doing.

Losing Duke, Miami's going trouble replacing all that fumbling. Scarlett can fill that role admirably. ;-)

SinisterCane

EFF you Golden and your Cloud

Go Canes

We've had a very good history with kids from St Thomas, with a pretty high percentage making it to the show, including Linder and Dorsett this year and last and Hank before him.

There is also a pretty strong culture there of honoring commitments once they're made. I remember their prior coach was really big on that.

This kid has a chance to be special here, he has to know that. Hoping he sticks.

CaneRock

But honestly, I think RB is the least of our concerns. We haven't been hittin' on DBs & DTs the last couple of years. That's what's gonna bite us in the @$$ in 2016...REGARDLESS of who the coach is.

Ohio_Cane

Pete Thamel ‏@SIPeteThamel 4m4 minutes ago

Florida announces new assistant hires, including Randy Shannon as co-DC and associate head coach.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ What does "whether they coaching staff is there or not" mean? Does He feel like the coaching staff won't be there His sophomore year? And maybe I'm reading too much into it, but if you're committed to a school, why would you refer to them as "they"...

CaneRock

These 2 competing statements don't give me confindence that we'll hold on to Scarlett:

"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."

"It will take a lot swing me because I feel like at Miami I'm set. Duke Johnson just declared for the draft and I feel like I would be going there with a great opportunity," Scarlett said. "Brad Kaaya is a great quarterback and he can really turn things around whether they coaching staff is there or not."


Ohio_Cane

Raize, the next coaching staff needs talent. Otherwise, we're even further away from being legitimate threat on a national stage.

If the cupboard is bare when the next coach is hired next year, we're looking at 2-3 years minimum in a rebuild.

raizecane

Im not sure why some of you are so "concerned" about which recruits we get and which recruits we don't.

Does it really matter? The anser is No and here is why. Even if we land the Number 1 recruiting class, do you think this coaching staff and can do anything with these recruits?

If you read past blogs, the answer is a big resounding "NOOOOOO". Life is to short people. Don't get caught up on what an 17 - 18 year decides to do when picking a school

UMike

Ohio... I can agree with that.

Ohio_Cane

Scarlett HAS to see the opportunity to come in and take Duke's role. Immediate playing time and/or starting on a team that just got Duke over 1600 yards, and most in school history for a career.

To hell with what he sees Dalvin and them doing.

UpNorthCane27

shitttttttt we need to go back to them VHS tapes days for sure man...

Al golden and his crew of dimwits are driving me crazyy... only good news recently was that of Knowles

Demons

My brother told me back when Erickson was coach , players would call on a hard line phone , tell him or a coach they were bringing their hi-lites on a vhs tape, these were players who wasn't even recruited by us. hummm , the good old days.

UMike

Good chance you will be pizzed lol...but hope not. One min Im reading he is solid, the next he is shaky. Hard to hold on to recruits when you go 6-7 and finish the year how we did. Mix in the fact you have freshman RB's like Cook, Collins (last year), Michel etc going elsewhere and playing big mins and theres plenty of reason so leave. Hopefully he stays, our next coach can use the talent.

UpNorthCane27

BUTCH is the only coach that keeps the recruits we have and adds some new and sick players

Ohio_Cane

If we lose Scarlett, I'm gonna be so pizzed...

Posted by: j.w. | January 05, 2015 at 12:10 PM wider seats with vinyl seat covering , still have callouses from the orange bowl benches.

Demons

NFL teams usually clean house on Mondays , I am guessing after bowl games you do the same , in the real world we do that on Fridays .

30CINCO

Hope the newer seats are wider.

Great chance to upgrade and move a little closer.

Demons

I am not a big stat guy , but watching the games it looks like we bowed up on first down and maybe second down then got beat like 90 percent of the time on 3rd downs , didn't look like we gave up a lot thru the air , but when we did it looked like 80-90 pass plays , same on runs to, we would stop someone for like 2-3 yards , then they bust a big play, maybe why I read where one of you guys said we were the #15 ranked D, and the worst in 3rd down stops.

WWIN

Yea the Adidas thing sucks. What the heck could we do w $3 mil a year anyway? Sheesh

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | January 05, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Keep being cheap like we always have! What did that ACC tv deal do for us?

Didn't you say that UM isn't hurting for money?

WWIN

But trust the process...Im pretty sure the big orange binder has a chapter called "from 6-7 to 10-2"

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 09:59 AM

LMAO!

miamicane

If you look at the goal line d on those plays the safetys were free lancing cause they did not back pedal when the ball was snapped. Lol

How binding is a signed letter, is it that the AD is not wanting to lose these recruits if golden is fired before they sign, and the holdup to fire him is after , now that I reread that , that would make the AD a very smart man , and as some of our illustrious gentlemen here has stated before he is not.

Posted by: Demons | January 05, 2015 at 12:01 PM

It's binding I believe... And the recruits are leaving w AG here now, the best thing to do for recruiting is to fire Al now and bring in somebody who doesn't run a goal line prevent.

Not gonna happen. He made it to a bowl game after all.

Demons

How long can you be a friend and buds with the players if they are not performing , saban goes into a recruits house sit and eat all sorts of weird foods , talk like a daddy to them then chew their butts out in a game , you know if your coach is berating a coach on the sidelines he don't give a damn about doing the same to a player , that lovey dovey emotions on the sidelines suck ,I want to see a coach man up and shout at someone, anyone .

Go Canes

@AbramsonPBP: #Dolphins are removing every seat in stadium with more rows coming closer to field in lower bowl, less seats in upper... Canopy comes 2016

@AbramsonPBP: Upper corner end zone seats are being completely removed. That's where columns for canopy will be placed. Rest of stadium gets new seats.

@AbramsonPBP: Overall Sun Life Stadium seating capacity is being reduced by 10k to about 65,000. But lower bowl is adding more seats closer to field.

miamicane

I think.the brawl was a result of a team that Clappy lost control of and the Administration waited to long to fire him.

Ohio_Cane

U

Demons

Posted by: j.w. | January 05, 2015 at 12:10 PM Makes sense , what we see is what we get , his words and nice guy image is always the face of some one saving face ,don't doubt he is a nice guy , but when you know your season is based on beating a beatable FSU team and you do that for 30 mins then just shut down and lose your last 4 games , to me you have lost the players .

miamicane

Coker 11

miamicane

The only way he gets canned is if we have a big fight in a game where the bench clears . Lol

360Cane

^^^and ironically they start in section 420. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Posted by: Demons | January 05, 2015 at 12:01 PM
Demon, not going to happen. He isn't getting fired after NSD unless something so far out of character for him occurs that it isn't worth speculating over. Despite what all of us think of his coaching ability, he is a decent guy and isn't doing anything stupid enough to merit firing for cause.
I'm not arguing he shouldn't be fired for performance, nor arguing it shouldn't happen now, but I'm convinced that the Ath. Dept. is either entirely tone deaf on this issue or they negotiated the extension for Golden so poorly that they literally can't afford to fire him. Either way, we have him, he has a job to do, and to paraphrase Colin Cowherd, hope he recruits well down the stretch because it doesn't do us any good to fail at recruiting and in the season.

Demons

It seems to me players are more intent to checking out schools where they can go right in and start and could care less about the school , and more or less thinking about what school can get them into the NFL , that's more of the 5 star players motivations , the 2-3-4 star players are more adept to go to a school because of parents, family or prior teammates .

Go Canes

Can't wait until we get down to that 55,000 number with seats closer to the field. Our normal 30k turnout will feel a lot tighter and hopefully louder.

@AbramsonPBP: Seats in Sun Life Stadium are being removed. Renovations begin RT @TomGarfinkel Here we go... http://t.co/KIBQWADXYc

miamicane

Thats why they would come to the U

360Cane

P.S. I love wearing a tinfoil hat btw. []_[]

miamicane

They get 10 minute breaks while backing up and sitting down in their zone?

360Cane

Did this Monday thing come from a pay site or a blog distributing ads to its readers? This Monday rumor sure was a nice tactic to drive up that traffic today, huh?

What's the numbers look like 86 for this site even though it does not belong on the category mentioned above? An unusually high, off-season Monday?

Is Golden gone yet? Bring Butch back and make Godilox head cheerleader

UMike

For the Addidas unis and fewer night games?

Posted by: SOUP | January 05, 2015 at 11:54 AM

Well since the fewer night games equal more wins.. maybe, just maybe!

thirstybuzzardcane


About a month to go before NSD , can a kid still flip after signing , my reason to ask that , is maybe we want to tie up these recruits then fire golden ?

Posted by: Demons | January 05, 2015 at 11:51 AM


---------------------------------------

In that circumstance, I'm pretty sure a kid can go somewhere else without sitting out a year.

SOUP

I honestly dont know why any defensive recruit would want to come to Miami under this staff.

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 11:48 AM

UMike

I like the Nike stuff, but as long as it has the U on it, IDC. I will have to buy some Adidas shows now though lol

Demons

Canezitis

What the hell? Why is Al still here!? Maybe they made the deal with Adidas to pay for the buyout and new HC? Do we think they care that much? Naaaah.

UMike

SOUP...When stuff was good I talked about the good...Go Canes is being an attention whore and its very clear to see. But we all know you're more bootlicker than hater and will take sides haha...Im talking about the REALITY of things at UM..not some homer fantasy stuff like 10-2 next year, or repeating "we will only lose to fsu" after 3 losses lol

thirstybuzzardcane

I have a bad feeling that UF & FSU will flip some of our guys!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

I have a feeling we'll lose OL Milo to UCLA.

UMike

I honestly dont know why any defensive recruit would want to come to Miami under this staff.

SOUP

UMike...U should change your name to Not Go Canes or No Go Canes or something like that. If U criticize Go Canes for trying so hard to see the positive in everything yet at the same time U try even harder (if that's even possible?) to see the negative in everything. It works both ways U know.

UMike

I think Tim was smart enough to see the writing on the wall himself.

thirstybuzzardcane

I would bet any amount of money that Uncle Mike had something to do with nephew Tim not picking UM........C'mon, he sees the writing on the walls!

UMike

dj... I hear you, but that doesn't mean its a lie lol... NSD is next month and our A-B options are just about gone.. who knows what the coach said..if the coach said "look we REALLY need you here at Miami" is that trying hard? lol

thirstybuzzardcane

This AD & coaching staff is like a cancer.....they are slowly killing this program!

UMike

SOUP.. my bad.. you're right..The white "how to rob a university" binder... how could I forget

dj moonbat

why go to UM and be a roster filler when he can start at FIU?

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 11:36 AM


But the other part -- about Miami trying hard to flip him -- is still a lie. With Knowles, UM's attempts to flip him apparently amounted to extending him an offer. So, okay, maybe they emailed Jones as well.

thirstybuzzardcane


So let me get this right...we lose our best player on offense, we lose our best player on defense and all the same sorry ass coaches come back...but we will go from 6-7 to 10-2. Oh... ok.

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 08:50 AM
----------------------------------------

Don't forget 3 OL men that probably will be drafted in the NFL!

SOUP

Im pretty sure the big orange binder has a chapter called "from 6-7 to 10-2"

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 09:59 AM

Actually, it is a white binder and that is Chapter 5.

UMike

Why is he lying..they just flipped an FIU commit, so obviously we dont mind going after FIU guys, especially since all the kids high up on our boards are gone... why go to UM and be a roster filler when he can start at FIU?

UpNorthCane27

Ohio just wanted to let you know your boy is an Official graduate student of Ohio University!!!! Got accepted this morning, flying down to Philly for the NSCAA convention next week. Its the opening residency for the students of the program.

SOUP

I have the feeling we'll be playing far fewer night games, though.

Posted by: dj moonbat | January 05, 2015 at 08:51 AM

And in new shoes.

Posted by: 360Cane | January 05, 2015 at 09:37 AM

Well then UNDEFEATED it is!

12% bus gonna be full in 2015 for sure.

UpNorthCane27

LOl Umike stop Anthony jones lieing outta his ass man lol

Go Canes

He probably saw a greater opportunity for PT after looking at our potential depth chart.

Kind of like the QB who decommited after seeing no chance against Kaaya.

Good for him if it's best for him.

SinisterCane

The CANEZ would go 9-4 without a coaching staff. Why do their best years always seem to be their freshman campaign?

UMike

lol.. just saying.. maybe for him FIU is better. Maybe at FIU he starts while at Miami he will just be another kid filling a roster spot.

dj moonbat

dj... maybe to HIM it is better, why be part of a sinking ship and staff that is clueless lol

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 11:27 AM

FIU went 4-8 in Conference USA last year. We complain about going 5-7 in the ACC Coastal, but I'm pretty sure that's a lot worse.

raizecane

Nike Lovers = Propaganda zombies......

UMike

dj... maybe to HIM it is better, why be part of a sinking ship and staff that is clueless lol

dj moonbat

Damn, Golden is even batting .500 against FIU! Anthony Jones:

How hard was Miami trying to flip you?

"They tried real hard to flip me but in the end I did what's best for me."

Posted by: CaneRock | January 05, 2015 at 11:22 AM


That sounds like a lie. Unless he lives right next to FIU's campus or something, there's literally nothing that could make it a better choice.

CaneRock

Looks like our two top O Line commits fared well in their all star game appearances. Saw lots of good things about St Louis the other day, now this:

@CanesWarningFS: :D RT "@dgould151: Oh http://t.co/54oKWxIKaI”

The Dude

Good will is gone. Players have quit. Time to move on.

The Dude

Oh sweet, seeing as how our only loss was to FSU.

UMike

Just woke up, did they fire Al?

Posted by: The Dude | January 05, 2015 at 11:01 AM

No... but its ok, Go Canes has assured us we will go 10-2 next year.

sass

We will be fine with Adidas. I liked last years unis but the 2 previous sucked bad. The last Nike one's I liked was the 01 jerseys. If Nike don't want to pay move on.

The Dude

Just woke up, did they fire Al?

UpNorthCane27

I put money that the lil dude from the east team going to Duke who scored on that sick trick play will be giving us fits for four years!!!!

I still don't understand how the hell we cant get that kid humphreys the LB outta cali

CaneRock

This staff would've said the same thing about Ed Reed. Ariz on Javaris Davis:

"I was told Miami wanted to get a look at him in person to check his legit size. He was a little too small for their liking."

dj moonbat

He's got some more to offer before we can officially say he "gets it".

Fenton, Hoggins, Talan, et al.
Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 05, 2015 at 09:30 AM


That Talan kid. Wow.

SinisterCane

Posted by: UMike | January 05, 2015 at 09:59 AM


LMAO

UMike

Go Canes... did you not see my follow up post? Im ok with this kid, but he is no Tim Irvin. I would pick a 3-star South Florida kid over most 4-stars from elsewhere, so Im OK with it, but he is not as good as MANY local DB's we missed out on. It IS about Golden..he cannot pick up elite local talent, even guys that should of be shoe-ins for Miami.

Go Canes

No I just don't need to knock a commit by comparing him to one we lost.

I'd much rather have gotten both but that didn't happen. But I'm still glad to get the one we did, especially if it's a South Florida kid. You on the other hand, obviously don't.

Your attempt to make this about Golden makes no sense.

UMike

We did get some cool uniforms for 1 season though. Maybe the new stuff will surprise us and look good

360Cane

What if, the big announcement for change is just the Adidas deal? :-O

1mg of Epi

Yea the Adidas thing sucks. What the heck could we do w $3 mil a year anyway? Sheesh

UMike

Its ok Go Canes...Im sure whoever your God Al Folden gets to commit to Miami will go on to be great! They will learn to never turn their heads around or make a play on the ball, they will become the best backpedals in the nation, and if lucky enough will have a ton of unnecessary weight added to derail their career. But trust the process...Im pretty sure the big orange binder has a chapter called "from 6-7 to 10-2"

DAMN this Adidas deal! I get it, more money for the school, more gear for the kids, blah, blah!

I can't be seen wearing my UM colored Nike shoes with an Adidas shirt! Gonna have to make a trip to All Canes and stock up on what I can find.

Go Canes

UMike reminds me of a girl who disses her date for taking her to a 3 star restaurant.

"Wtf am I doing here, Kim Kardashian hasn't even eaten here!!"

Ohio_Cane

Knowles also plays for Edison, who gets little exposure and isn't a powerhouse like STA, etc.

CaneRock

They also say Knowles didn't hit the chitlin' circuit...ala Gray last year. But I doubt this kid was even a plan B, but He's a balla no doubt.
