I am a glass half full kind of guy. Can't ignore all the misses for talented South Florida kids, but must also say that the Canes have a solid top 25 class and some really good recruits. Norton, JJ, St. Louis and Walton were great pulls and they have some undervalued prospects that will surprise people.

The Canes have theCanes#1 recruiting class for 2016. Now it's up to Golden to get some wins in 2015 if he wants to keep that swag class in tact and also keep his job.

It's just not good enough. Al isnt a good enough tactician to win with that level of talent. He needs to have talent so superior that they simply overwhelm the opposition.

I love every single player that signed today. And am thrilled they'll be wearing the U. Al just needs more if his lack of coaching chops is going to be camouflaged.

And AQM

@PeterAriz: Miami has laid the groundwork for a formidable front-4 between Chad, Demetrius, Norton, Willis, Moten, and McIntosh. Can build with them

Al Golden and UM is like fitting a round peg into a square hole. It doesn't work.

if the peg is small enough or the hole is big enough it does.

For the few bloggers that chose not to type the same nonsense everyone else is typing, thank you. For the rest, not that u r wrong about what's going on, but it's just gets old when everyone spews the same nonsense; 2 days, it's been going on.

LB

Do you guys seriously think that Al's 2016 class will hold together? Come on. If we get a new head coach, maybe.

1. This team just lost its best offensive (Johnson) and defensive players (Perryman). Add in Dorsett, Flowers, Gunter, Walford, and Feliciano. Do you seriously think this team is going to be better with losing that much talent?
Kaaya is awesome, but he can't compete with that talent loss and the worst coaching staff in America. He isn't Superman.

2. Nebraska, at FSU, Va. Tech, Clemson, at Duke, at NC, Ga. Tech. That doesn't even factor in at Pittsburgh, at Cincinnati, and at Virginia. Do you really believe that with a less talented team and with greatly improved opponents (especially in the ACC Coastal), that we're topping 6-6?

3. The fanbase hates Al, and with each game in 2015... they'll hate him more. Let's be real: he's on the chopping block. Donna Shalala will also be gone in a few months (thank God).

4. How many people ran from Al this year? At least 15 high schoolers got sane and went elsewhere, and oodles more didn't even give him the time of day. He sent out hundreds of offers. It looks weak and pathetic. That's going to hurt getting South Florida talent.

5. They are high school kids. The $EC is pushing, and we all know how F$U does. High school kids are as reliable as Al's defense.

There's a whole crapload of other reasons, but you get it. If you think that this 2016 class is going to stick with Al in charge... you're insane.

LB

Oh, and get ready for another round of excuses once the poop storm hits:

1. We're too young (because we're younger than last year).

2. We lost Duke Johnson and have no running game.

3. We lost Flowers and Feliciano and have no pass protection.

4. We lost Gunter, Perryman, and Chickillo... and that's why our defense sucks.

5. Night games.

6. The cloud.

7. The fans.

8. Resources.

9. Players not buying in.

10. Assistant coaches (save D'Onofrio) not buying in... even though none were fired.

11. Opponents out-executed.

12. Penalties from a frustrated team.

13. The 2016 class is what will save us.

14. Poor conditioning that UTough is supposed to fix.

15. Poor tackling he's supposed to teach.

16. Suspensions.

17. Transfers...

...and on and on.

Listening to Golden's press conference, and it seems like I picked above:

- Directly referenced the cloud.
- Directly referenced the youth.
- Directly referenced losing Duke Johnson.
- Indirectly referenced suspensions.
- Indirectly referenced transfers.
- Indirectly referenced the resources.
- Directly referenced the sucky defense.
- Indirectly referenced the pass protection.
- Directly referenced conditioning.

Not at all challenged by the media. Blake and Donna seemed to have picked them from scratch.

Go,GoCanes!

Here are the actual words:

Nobody bothered to ask him whether the whole staff was coming back intact?

LB

Djmoon...

...not even close.

The closest thing to a real question was when Gary Furman (or Ferman) asked him about the difficulty of evaluations. Then Al responded multiple times with:

"...you're splitting hairs."

LB

He also talked a lot about players getting bigger (i.e.: slower).

LB

He mentioned the 2016 class at least five times (I lost count), and also listed off players who didn't play yet.

Basically pleading with everyone to keep him around, but Donna and Blake made sure he was preaching to the choir.

Chosen reporters. And if I had to put money down, the questions were probably screened by the UM administration.

Old Skool

So Al's radioactive in South Florida

LB

It's toxic and lethal. They may as well make the spring game closed to fans and media, so at least they move the camera on the field and still avoid the signs and banners from the sky.

Woof.

LB

Al probably won't be seen in person again until the Spring Game, so that will give the fans time to calm down and more time for him to plead his case to stay to the next administration regardless of record.

Wow. That's really something. I mean, Al's words are almost completely untethered from reality.

LB

Can you imagine a school (any school) who claims to be competing for conference titles to:

1. Keep a coach with a losing record in his fourth year.

2. Keep a coach who refused to fire any assistants the losing record and consecutive bowl losses.

3. Finished dead last in the easiest division in major college football.

4. Went 0-13 vs. a postseason top 25 teams.

5. Never thrown a shutout.

I'm out. My wife has a birthday and I need a shower after listening to that speech.

No Golden Showers, mind you.

Thanks again to Soup and the Space for a great site.

Go go canes - you are a delusional fool and part of the freakin problem! We should all be pissed as shit and not but up with this bs!
The Canes are finished! A below average 6-6 type team until we fire the effin northern loser!

Listening to His interviews drives me crazy. Nobody asks any decent questions and god forbid anybody asks a follow up.

I did hear him explain why there weren't more local kids in the class.... Because we need O lineman, and it wasn't a deep O line class locally. Lol.

Go,GoCanes!

I'm part of the problem?

If you think that you don't even know what the question is.

Jsy

Why does golden always mention players weights? It's almost disturbing how he mentions weights all the time, to him it seems that's their most defining trait, just odd

Anyone that can Defend a loser like Golden is Definitely the Problem...
Or Wait is it those that want to move on from this nightmare??
Easy Math...People who wanna WIN know he needs to go!!
People who are OK with mediocrity accept his Shenanigans and Losses..

Saw Norton play in the high school game at the end of the season in Boca Raton. He played both ways and was very athletic. He even carried the ball as a fullback. I loved his swag and had a good ffeeling about him coming to Miami (perhaps wishful thinking). The Canes have some players on D. Despite scheme, I think the D will be very good in 2015 if they can avoid critical injuries. I think their defense will attack more and they have some players that can make plays. If Bush stays healthy, he is the leader and all ACC. DL is deep. JJ is the best safety from South Florida, and I would take Knowles over Irvin any day. We are deep and experienced at CB. LBs started to play better with Hurley. Not only will they have a top 10 defense, I expect them to be near the top in critical defensive stats like turnovers and 3rd down efficiency. A good defense can carry the Canes to a coastal division championship.

Go,GoCanes!

That's analysis.

Everything else?

Bullshit.

With the entire class at 22 (including early enrollees), how much of the remaining NCAA sanction on scholarship reductions can we take care of this year.

It would be nice to address it once and for all this year.

Where do you think oddsmakers should set the over/under on Days on Campus before Gerard Willis Gets in Serious Trouble?
