Golden's flirtation with Ped U killed his 2013 class, not the NCAA

This is totally false. The interest allegedly shown had NO impact on recruiting. Name the tecruits that didn't sign off because of this.

I'll be waiting right here.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Ronda Rousy is awesome.

SinisterCane

You don't have to wait for long: Matthew Thomas

CaneRock


But he or Butxh would have incredible success with none of those resources here.



Posted by: Go Canes | July 15, 2015 at 09:26 PM

Butch already did.

Go Canes

Matthew Thomas?

That dude never wanted to come here. He even wanted to bolt FSU for USC after he signed.

Don't forget Vakentine "decommitting " too!

Give me a break man.

TonyCane

Valentine....sigh...out of LSU now too.

TonyCane

And Dude, you're right. Rousy is awesome.

Can't wait to see Phil Brooks (aka CM Punk) in his first fight in UFC next year.

Lurker said name them and I did, plus I believe Valentine came out the same the same yr as Chad Thomas. If Matthew was hell bent on USC how did he ended up at FSU. Anyway you can't downplay Golden job hunting in Pennsy didn't have an affect on Matthew Thomas' recruiting process

TonyCane

Separate question...is Marshall as much of a destination for the recruits who cannot get into other schools as it is for Miami? Curious just how much talent is being accumulated there. Noticed that they went 11-1 last season...I wonder if they might be a playoff dark horse.

"Allegedly"?

"According to sources and media reports, five candidates interviewed with the committee - Miami coach Al Golden (Jan. 4), Franklin (Jan. 5), former Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak (Jan. 5), San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman (Jan. 6), and Penn State interim head coach Larry Johnson (Jan. 7). It was not known whether the committee reached out to speak with anyone else.

Golden, a former player and assistant coach under Joe Paterno, loomed as the top candidate right away. In fact, some in his camp, perhaps Golden himself, were disappointed he was not offered the job that day, but the committee told him that it had other interviews to conduct and that the panel would be back in touch.

Even though Golden issued a statement the next day saying he was not a candidate for another job, he spent last week with a chance to become Penn State's coach in the event the interview with Franklin fizzled or contract talks went nowhere."

I think it is...them & Louisville.

CaneRock

And last I heard, Rakeem Cato was ballin' out in the CFL.

Terrance Sullivan

Louisville is actually a Power 5 conference Power. Marshall is not though. Even though Marshall is only behind Boise State in non power conference schools.

True.

CaneRock

As far as being "back", and I mean NC "back", not winning the ACCC back...but you won't KNOW we're "back", until you see future All-Americans (ie Taylor & Winslow in 01') running down the field covering kick-offs.

I remember waching Travis Benjamin field a kick in the 2011 FSU game, and getting crushed by a DLmen, Goldman I think it was.

In that same game, Karlos Williams, who was a LB at the time, ran by our kick-off team and made em' look like they were standing still...A LB!

When talent like that spills over to your special teams, then you have arrived...or you're "back".

Terrance Sullivan

Very True Rock.

Lur-ker

Those names you threw out, are totally made up. Those guys didn't come here for several reasons, none of them having anything to do with Golden and the Penn State rumors. You just made that up, and out of thin air. I hate that.

CaneRock

The only commit, I remember de-committing because of Golden flirting with crappy valley, was Nigel Bethel.

Susan:

University of Miami athletic director Blake James confirmed to the Miami Herald on Wednesday that UM’s new retail-jersey number policy will be to only produce one jersey with the current year and another with No. 1 – as in “We’re No. 1,’’ James said.

“This year is odd in that Brad Kaaya, obviously one of our most recognized names and players, is No. 15,’’ James said. “But it’s 15 for 2015 and No. 1 because we’re No. 1. Next year will be 16 and 1, the year after will be 17 and 1. The progression will continue for as far out in the future as you can see.’’

As for UM, retailer Harry Rothwell, general manager of the popular AllCanes near campus, said vendors are happy this year, but likely not so much in 2016.

“I doubt we’ll be selling too many 16s,’’ he said.

The new UM jerseys are expected to go on sale sometime in mid-to-late August, with the new adidas uniforms to be unveiled Saturday night in an invitation-only bash at Club Liv in Miami Beach.

Blake James is an Idiot....

Terrance Sullivan

Smart move Blake James.

Go Canes

Of course none of those players went elsewhere for other reasons.

Even Bethel "decommitted" because it was written the coaches ended up feeling he was too small.

It's a singleminded blame mentality, where no other facts are ever considered. If they stop then their "X coach would come in here and make us like X program" fantasy holds no water.

Playing in 25 year old, oversized stadium 30-40 miles from campus? It's a Golden problem.

Prehistoric facilities compared to most MID-LEVEL programs? It's a Golden problem.

Salacious, two and a half year NCAA investigation? It's a Golden problem.

Inheriting an out of shape, lazy, suspension filled roster further compounded by several of your veterans inexplicably leaving for the NFL the following year? It's a Golden problem.

He's not Bear Bryant. No one disputes that.

But good lord open your eyes.


Go Canes

And enough of the ridiculous USC comparisons.

They had a roster full of 4-5 star players when the sanctions hit and were the elite team in football when they got hit. Even after sanctions they got elite talent with what they could recruit because they were nationally relevant, which we hadn't been in almost a decade when Golden and the sanctions got here simultaneously.

The roster USC had when their mess started would have beaten ours at the same moment by 30.

So please.

DnoPa is the guy who should have been fired. He cannot teach or coach Defense. He wishes they could play like Seattle; he has no clue abut that D. He should be forced to manage a Burger King. ..thats all he can handle. Watch our guys in coverage, tackling, using hands, being ready, stance,
all critical fundamentals....terrible! The man does not develop players he does not teach.

GC very nice point regarding Sumlin quote....very very true. We have some talent....nothing great....but we have no depth at all. Without it you cannot succeed. Like CR said ST26 K2 on kick team....you know you are loaded with great talent and depth. We do not get the greats anymore....why?...we don't win. We have been gone and never have been back....remember a few seasons ago when everyone said The U and FSU were back? They were on the way and are back....we never were and are not.
Have to hope it happens this year....it must!

VA Cane

We are # 1....LMFAO....Cmon Blake really? ....so stupid!

Morning Spacers

Lurker

I could care less what you HATE, Golden's attempt to become the HC of PSU had an affect on recruiting. Everybody I listed was being heavily recruiting by Miami so to suggest that it had NO affect...well that's your opinion. Some believed we lead for Vernon Hargreaves due to his dad behind former assistant coach but now today he was never coming here,lol

CaneRock

Nobody's blaming Golden for facilities & SLS...stop it.

One more time...nobody's changing anybody's mind about Golden around here...the only person that can change minds, IS GOLDEN!

Lur-ker

You have no clue what you are talking about with Hargreaves. He wasn't coming here.

Again, you'll notice there is no backing up of your point because you are dead wrong, and because it's obvious you just threw a bunch of names at the wall. No credibility at all.

I don't anyone to back me up so please list the reason why they didn't come to Miami since you know so much

Blake is protecting the U from lawsuits re: making money off players likeness. Probably a smart move... But hes still an idiot.

CaneRock

Lur-ker

Blake is NOT an idiot for this move. It's a trend in college football because of the O'Bannon case.

Try to keep up.

30CINCO

Vernon Hargreaves committed to FL in 2012, signed in 2013. Golden talked to Penn St. in 2014.

How did UM lead for him?

Is Brad Kaaya the Miami Hurricanes' Next Star Quarterback?

Since Ken Dorsey had consecutive top-five Heisman Trophy finishes in 2001 and ‘02, Miami has struggled to find an elite quarterback. Hurricane fans were tantalized at times by the play of Brock Berlin, Jacory Harris and Stephen Morris. But in the end, none of those players fully met expectations in large part because they simply did not win enough games.

Enter Brad Kaaya.

No problem with the number ideas.....but he wishes we were #1. The Canes, despite our opinions, agreements, and disagreements, are # 1 in all our hearts. Its time to be #1 where it matters most...field. BJ lol.....must have meant in hearts of fans....not on field for long time now.

A lot of things can be offered for an 11 year decline, many of them valid, many have contributed....AlPa has a hand in it as well. It cannot be placed squarely all on him.
BUT....he came here and said it will turn around....and he is charged with the task. ..he took it on.
Hope he will succeed this year. I mean that and I may criticize him....but I am pulling for him.
ESPYs....corny not big on that angle of sports. . I play watch coach and learn. Only award that matters is on field: championship!

Bruce Jenner or whatever the name....up there in a dress....cmon....little strange and out there.

VA Cane

Nice article about BK....he is a good kid did good job. Hope he can get help from all for a successful season.
Unfortunately.....we will hear a lot about OSU. They are loaded with talent...good depth. I hate them and Urban....but they are talented and he is a proven winner very good coach.

CaneRock

Several things had impacts on recruiting in 2013. The dismal 2-4 finish...looking lifeless in the bowl game...and let's not act like Golden flirting with crappy valley didn't have an impact.

I'm not gonna say no names, but wasn't that the year a certain blogger was o'fer in His NSD prognostications?...LMAO!

CaneRock

Good article on BK15. IDK, I keep hearing about the changes to the defense, but I'm more interested to see what changes they've been made to the offense.

Playing devil's advocate...if I'm the opposing DC going up against a young O-Line, I'm throwing my blitz package at ya'. Hope Coley has some blitz beaters in His toolbox.

Terrance Sullivan

Great blogging today Peeps.

laquinton

Miami does not play seattles defense at allllll.

Seattle plays a cover 3 out of a 4-3 with great penetrating DT on the run stopping, OLB that cover the flats making Sherman look much better than he is.. a fs that knows how to cover the middle and make hits and a ss who is a box lb like he played at vtech. Yeahh that's just dumb to say.

3rd hardest schedule, doesn't matter who its on. Golden will get fired if he doesn't win 10 games. Bet on that

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^ Yep.

And 1 time (actually 2) for my homeboy, His wife dropped twin girls yesterday. Guy went through an ugly divorce, and the Lord blessed em' with 2 girls on His 2nd marriage. Don't get no better than that.
