AfriCane

Hey VA! Great piece U wrote. While I agree with u that manny is a writer and we don't necessarily have to take his word as gospel, his points, I feel, r objective enough. All he claims is that since the UM administration has already made their decision to keep golden for @ least this year, it does us no good to drown the program in negativity as we can do nothing to affect change right now. His take is, the continued negativity will only further serve to bring our beloved program down. It's kind of like trying to perform CPR on a dead body. The only purpose it will serve will be to drain your energy as u cannot bring the body back to live.
Good work on the success of your program. Your kids r killing it😉

I'm going to say this now...

I'm SHOCKED that Golden (and took Coley - shouldve taken D'No lol) went to Dallas to be with the Cowboys the last couple days. I didn't think he had it in him to realize he didn't know it all and have the willingness to see that and do something about it. Kudos.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 08, 2015 at 09:26 AM

C'mon Ohio, you know damn well Golden didn't go for himself, he only went to make sure Coley attended! Cuz as you know the offense is what kept us from winning! Lol

A few thoughts from a very frigid VA think tank...

1. I take anything Playmaker says with a few grains of crack....er....salt
While a fantastic Hurricane and Cowboy on the field, the man is a shallow individual. That loud yap talking about guns and being bad in The U....talking about people stating their opinions about UM football are typical Playmaker....he couldn't spell gun much less find the right end of one...even if he held it sideways....and I am sure he has been involved with all his kids...Mr Family Man. He has his opines, others who do not worship at his false alter have theirs and the right to have it.

Manny Navarro is a writer....a good one...but for him to tell others his opine on how they should act and feel is HIS opine...not mine. Writers write, players play, coaches coach....you write...I have played and coached longer than you have been alive....I know this game and continue to learn grow and teach it every day, develop players and students....and WIN. You opine how you feel about AlPa and the State of UM football...thats grand. I will speak my opine as I see it.Losing has created the cloud if you will...not people opposing losing...so change it and change the culture. I hate losing in anything JMO!!!

Go Canes, other than to rib you about being a cheerleader, I do not recall calling you a DB, queer,whore,loser, or any other name. I do not know you other than from these pages....and have no want or need to....nor do you want or need to know me...thats grand. Loving UM football is a given for all of us; we do. However, many of us are accustomed to relevancy, competing, winning....I mean thats why you play: to WIN!! You do defend AlPa and Co, and thats fine...I don't despise the man and staff at all.....but I DO see their inability and incompetency regarding their ability to coach at this level. If you like folders, notebooks, delusions, muddy water and untruths thats your absolute right.

You look at the world through GoldenPa glasses....thats fine too. Your stats, info, and Charlie Manson psycho babble are great defense retorts and replies for AlPas regime. Your knowledge and understanding of the game is so far off its a riot; you are living and breathing on Planet AlPa...he got you bro!!!!

One thing.....great quarterbacks do not win big games and titles coming from behind as you credited Winston....Great TEAMS win big games.....I have yet to see one man step onto the football field or the life field and win alone....other than Jesus Christ, the ultimate life QB!!!!

It is a team game friend....and ultimately it is won by every man contributing to the effort, sacrificing his selfish, self-seeking ways and giving all he has got for the guys in front of, behind and next to him to attain the ultimate TEAM goal:Victory!!!!

That seems to be the case in my philosophy I teach my players: Victory in Life Family School Football...in that order. Try that for your Process bro!!!!

Finally, I cannot change UM football; only tell it how I see it, hope for the best, and opine that it will get better when they come to reality and make the changes required to be Champions.
See, I have a much more important football mission right here in VA: to continue to develop Victory in Life Family School Football...in that order.
We have begun our off season work...as we plan on starting our push for our 7th Super Bowl in 9 years.....Just 91-3 and counting bro...a real TEAM (Together Everyone Wins Mightily).....so get some of those stats....IJS face the Facts!!!!

Blake James Q&A on Miami-Adidas deal and what it means for Al Golden’s ties

CORAL GABLES — A few questions for UM Athletic Director Blake James after the school and Adidas announced their 12-year deal Thursday:

What does the Adidas deal do for Miami?

“I think it does a lot. Again, one, I would say nothing but great things about Nike. They were a great partner and obviously have a wonderful brand. Obviously as we were doing our analysis and who was the best fit for us it became clear that Adidas was the right fit for the University of Miami. We’re excited today.

“They’re very committed to further enhancing our brand. Whether it’s here in the local market, regionally, nationally and even globally one of the things we talked about was seeing the ‘U’ everywhere we went. So, in New York, L.A., Miami, or somewhere else I want to know I want to be able to see the ‘U’. I think this gives us that opportunity to further strengthen our brand presence globally.”

"There was disappointment, but there was no finger pointing, no fighting, no dissension," Golden said of how 2014 ended. "Nobody is discouraged. The United campaign [on Instagram and Twitter] isn't a campaign from us the coaches or the administration. That's a grassroots thing from the players. Those are the guys calling, texting, spreading that. Talk to our kids. They can't wait to get going in 2015."

Excuse me, I transposed that field goal final margin, so they lost by less points in a squeaker and fired their coach for the South Carolina embarrassment, while the retard AD releases press releases divorced from reality as your average Penn State Paterno apologist.

Wait a minute, there's more than one of those in Miami's employ right now. Coincidence? Of course not.

It doesn't matter if we bring in Mel Blount, Lester Hayes and Mike Haynes to be the defensive back coaches, our db's will continue to look like punt returners in this scheme.

I'm, sure I'm over the head of a few of you youngsters but you have google.

orange 'n green in the vein

UM finished with a 5-7 losing record.

UF finished with a winning record. And beat South Carolina.

They're already ahead of UM, now they'll be pulling away.

In related UM football autopsy news, the retarded AD thinks that 5-7, "will help Miami to continue to be one of the nation's premier athletic programs." This parody writes itself dribbling from the lips of these idiots and parroted by their sockpuppet roster of attempted angry troll peons.

TheeMackJones

Enter the Florida game in ' 13. Miami was moving up and down the filed for approximately 15 minutes. Then the HIGH OCTANE offense suddenly became a slow plotting plow horse. Chit, the Gator defensive players were reaching for O2 tank. Thankfully those turnovers were the difference.

TheeMackJones

It's basically simple simon mathematics.

Florida, Nebraska, Michigan, Oklahoma, and array of other college football programs are WILLING to chit-can head coaches, coordinators and assistants. While Golden twiddles his thumbs and mutters ' don't worry, be happy. "

Yeah, yeah I see there's going to be ONE or maybe two TOKEN firings. So what.

It's Miami's current DEFENSIVE PHILOSOPHY, SCHEMES, GAME PLANNING and HALFTIME adjustments which are hurting the program.

Then throw in the FACT, that Golden has personally HANDCUFFED the offense the past FOUR seasons at Miami!! Maybe that's ONE reason why the Fischer Man moved on and what not.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 08, 2015 at 11:09 AM

Here's the deal.. After the bowl game BJ told Al the defense needs to be fixed and threatened Al with his job if D'no wasn't fired. Al refused and a standoff ensued. Al basically called BJ on his bluff, but BJ is still trying to force Al's hand. Williams has supposedly already been fired, and Carroll is also likely to be fired.

There is a meeting with the players scheduled for Sunday at 5:00pm at which time whatever firings actually taking place will be announced. We will find out sometime thereafter.

As far as the players are concerned some love Al and other do not. The ones that do like him believe him to NOT be a straight shooter, as he apparently makes promises that he does not keep. There is also a significant amount of discontent regarding schemes, especially on defense. They absolutely believe that he is not using their skill and talent correctly, hindering their ability to get to the next level. While Al still has some players who love him, D'no does not. He is not liked either personally or as a coach. The players believe Al's job will be safe as long as he gets to bowl games, whether we want to believe that or not it appears to be the case.

Looks like we will find out what the coaching staff will look like Sunday night or Monday.

UpNorthCane27

TheemackJones Defensively they might be miles ahead of us thanks to Randy but their offense sucks and will continue to suck until they find themselves a QB that can get it done on offense in the SEC. I dnt think Treon is that QB.

TheeMackJones

Onion Head will have Florida's defense miles and miles and miles and miles and mile beyond GOLDEN'S defense. That's an absolute GUARANTEE ( This one's for you, go canes. )!!!

Then throw in the fact Onion Head will STEAL SEVERAL talented South Florida HS players away from Golden.

But the bottom line is the Gators will return to college football significance QUICKER than the Hurricanes. Ouch.

" **People inside the equipment room hinted at the fact that Nike had become complacent with Miami. They weren't sending as much stuff as they had in the past and as a result, players would have to wear game-used materials. Schools like Florida State, Alabama, Clemson, etc. would get new shipments almost weekly. This did not sit well with Miami. (of course, money also plays a factor in this) " Peter Ariz
*******************

I don't blame Nike one iota for ignoring Golden's program.

Chit, since Golden took over the program the Canes have ABSOLUTELY become INSIGNIFICANT in the grand scheme of college football matters.

And Nike probably LOST mucho dollars because Golden ruined a once national college sports merchandising product!

It bare's repeating... last season's 6-7 record is just a preview of what's coming down the South Florida turnpike. And go canes and cohorts. It ain't going to be all positive vibes and what not.

Again, 2015 best case scenario is " 7-5 " and another season of the Golden and D'Onofrio. SMH

MAJOR LOSSES on the offensive line.

The Orange and Green Troika of Walford, THE DUKE and Dorsett moving on.

The graduation of TWO defensive tackes.

El Presidente taking his high impact game to the NFL.

The lost of THREE defensive backs which STARTED or played SIGNIFICANT minutes.

Then naturally there's Golden and D'Onofrio roaming the practice field again come the Ides of March. SMH

Golden talks Dallas trip, making changes for 2015, the new Testaverde and more

The goal for every college football team back in August was to make it to Dallas in January.

Turns out, Al Golden made it to Dallas in January after all.

The Miami Hurricanes' head coach -- along with offensive coordinator James Coley -- have spent the past couple days studying how the Dallas Cowboys run their organization from practices to meetings to drills.

The idea: learn how a successful NFL team does it, come home with fresh ideas to implement here for the future, and plot a new course that includes putting a disappointing 6-7 season behind them for good.

"Really since the day we got back from the bowl game the message that I wanted to convey to the team was improving," Golden said by phone Wednesday night. "Not just change for change sake, but to really identify the things we needed to improve and start to plot that course from the head coach's perspective."

Before arriving in Dallas Monday, Golden said he spent every day following the bowl loss to South Carolina in his office in Coral Gables looking at every facet of how things are done at UM. Everything, he said, could end up on the cutting room floor once he's done with his evaluations.

"It's fair to say I'm evaluating every aspect, every part of the program whether that's personnel or staff or off-season programs or how we run summer camp, spring ball, right down to our systems," he said. "I want to make sure we're doing things right. 2014 was unacceptable."

Does that include changing defensive scheme? "Oh sure," Golden said.

Golden already has many changes in mind, but he said he's not sharing any of them with the public until the team hears it first. That will happen when everyone gets back together on Sunday night.

> One new thing Golden is bringing back from Texas that he is willing to talk about: quarterback Vincent Testaverde, a transfer from Texas Tech.

The son of UM's former Heisman-winner will be eligible to play immediately at UM because he was a nonrecruited walk-on for the Red Raiders this past season. Testaverde played in one game as a freshman, throwing for 116 yards on 15-of-26 passing with an interception in a game against Texas.

He'll wear No. 14 -- his father's old number -- for the Hurricanes. His addition fills the need for another backup quarterback after UM lost a commitment from its only quarterback recruit in the 2015 class. Testaverde figures to backup ACC Freshman of the Year Brad Kaaya and provide depth along with returning redshirt freshman Malik Rosier.

"I'm excited about him joining our program," Golden said. "Just to hear Vinny Sr. and the pride he has in his voice to have Vincent come to The U, it's awesome."

> Three new arrivals were already posing for selfies at UM on Wednesday: former Miami Killian safety Jaquan Johnson, defensive lineman Scott Patchan and tight end Jerome Washington. Linebacker Charles Perry is expected to enroll on Monday along with junior college offensive lineman Jahair Johnson.

Golden said he's excited defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad, suspended for the 2014 season, and safety Rayshawn Jenkins, injured for the 2014 season, are already back with the team.

> Two guys who won't be around for spring football because they have to recover from injuries: offensive tackles Kc McDermott and Taylor Gadbois.

"Everybody else should be good to go," Golden said. "[Receiver] Herb [Waters] is going to be cleared here soon. [Kicker Matt] Goudis will be ready by spring ball. [Offensive lineman] Hunter Knighton is making a lot of progress in his rehab, we're hopeful to have him return sometime this spring."

> Freshman cornerback Ray Lewis III transferred to Coastal Carolina on Tuesday. Golden said he doesn't expect anybody else on UM’s roster to leave. "But at this time of year,” he cautioned. “if kids are going to leave they do leave. We're just not anticipating it."

> With a month to go before National Signing Day, UM has 20 new recruits either committed or signed. Golden said UM won't sign a full 25 this year because his goal is to exhaust the nine scholarships the program was docked by the NCAA for the Nevin Shapiro mess so it doesn’t affect the class of 2016.

> Golden declined to discuss comments attributed to Duke Johnson's mother late last month. Cassandra Prophet Mitchell created a stir on Facebook by saying "the majority of the team wouldn't be there" if players could transfer without sitting out a year and that "kids [are] tired of this crap."

A source at UM claims Mitchell reached out to Golden to say her comments "were misrepresented" and "the issue has been put to rest.”

"There was disappointment, but there was no finger pointing, no fighting, no dissension," Golden said of how 2014 ended. "Nobody is discouraged. The United campaign [on Instagram and Twitter] isn't a campaign from us the coaches or the administration. That's a grassroots thing from the players. Those are the guys calling, texting, spreading that. Talk to our kids. They can't wait to get going in 2015."

UpNorth, what U think?

Despite the beating Go Canes takes, I like that he is positive. Yes there are well established flaws but they do not seem to be changing so just get behind the 2015 team at this point.

Also, I hate the word "swagger" used with the current Canes. Shouldn't be used until they have it again.

For everyone nervous about the cleats, they're just custom cleats made for some pro athletes like Jimmy Graham. They're not ones we'll be wearing in games.

Those palm trees look horrible!!

Wow a 12 year deal that could be worth between $80-$100 million.
That's a hell of a PR stunt.

Was that directed at me? The trip to Dallas is the PR stunt.

The Adidas deal is fantastic. Too bad they won't reinvest it back into football.

With all that extra money now from Adidas they should be able to buy out golden but sadly I know it won't happen.

Golden going to Dallas makes sense bc Dallas led the nfl in TOP. So he brings his oc with him to learn even more how to shorten the game bc then he can get more twisted stats to help out dno
