Not sure, but it would be more interesting too see the correlation between ypp and alignment. Especially if we looked at multiple games.

Is your argument that they do not play off the ball?

Lets see. There were a total of 62 defensive snaps in the VT game. Just for rounding purposes, lets say snaps 31-62 is representative of the second half.

According to you, it was "soft zone hybrid prevent alignments" that had you so worried.

How many of those 31 defensive plays, ie, the second half, do you recall it being a "soft zone hybrid prevent" exactly? If you dont remember, throw a number, 80%? 90%? 95%?

As far as schemes, and lining up off the line of scrimmage, yes I'm that stuff looks a little off kilter to me sometimes. But then again, I don't make my money being a defensive coordinator in high school, college or the pros. So I'll leave it to the people that get paid to do that.

Well, apparently, it's you that has real hurt feelings. I mean you did call me a low class POS after I pointed out the truth of what really happened on Around the Horn.

Did I find it funny? No. Adande was serious, and is bringing up of the Lord of the flies was really a semi serious comment actually. Bomani tried to make a joke about bosses getting interns to do their jobs, it wasn't that funny, nor was it clowning Golden. Not the way I would define clowning.

Point is 3 of 4 guys like what Golden was doing and I was balancing your remarks.

You have completely twisted this whole thing around. Was I talking about your other posts? I was challenging you about accusing me of insulting anybody. Where have I insulted you or anyone else? But specifically you.

You guys are hilarious. I disagree with a post, bring the facts, about what those two TV characters actually said., and now you two are insulted. I mean seriously? Yeah I got called a low class P O S. But I'm not crybabying about it.

Why are you asking me about the defense, and the offense. I wasn't talking about that, at all. I was just talking about the negative attitude.

As far as schemes, and lining up off the line of scrimmage, yes I'm that stuff looks a little off kilter to me sometimes. But then again, I don't make my money being a defensive coordinator in high school, college or the pros. So I'll leave it to the people that get paid to do that.

Here yea go lurker.... Gather your facts and tell me how I'm wrong...

We can talk about blaming it on the players when:
-LBs aren't lined up 10 yards off the ball on the goal line.
-A one dimensional team isn't able to run the ball 15 times in a row vs a prevent D.
-The same short pass over the middle isn't hit over and over w no adjustment.
-The offense isn't called primarily to keep the D off the field.

Until the coaching staff gets their ish together on gamedays, no amount of player accountability will win games.

What insults? Pointing out a FACTS is now insulting? You guys just don't like getting called out when you stretch the truth and someone disagrees with you. You put stuff out there, be prepared to be challenged. In a factual, logical, and non-insulting way. But it's better if you do research when you come at me, because I will lay it out there. Just like that nonsense that was posted about those two guys clowning golden. You were trying to clown golden. It backfired. You put your negative spin on it. I called it out. You have no response.

CR if that's the reason you don't go to games I feel sorry for you. Most people behave in a civil manner. I go with my family, and rarely have problems. My only rare issues, have been with drunkenness and language from rival fans.

Lur-ker

You don't even know that expression, (peanut gallery) so do yourself a favor and look stuff up before you get offended .

As far as Adande and Bomani clowning Golden, you must have been looking at that through you really super negative glasses. Adande was actually in favor of Golden in terms of players policing themselves, he just said as an aside, he would just watch out for a Lord of the Flies type situation. You might want to look that up too. So three of four guys were in favor of it.

Bomani was selling it, but just saying as a joke that hey Golden should be doing that himself instead of making the "unpaid intern" do it.

Nobody was actually clowning Golden, certainly not Adande, and Bomani was kind of making a joke about the whole thing. Not a joke about Golden or necessarily his policy.

Anybody reading your blurb would've thought they were clowning Golden and making him look like a fool. 3 of 4 loved it, and one was just joking about a boss making the unpaid intern do their discipline work, without personally attacking the couch .

So far from the truth, but that's The negative spin you put on things. Sad.

Golden's words - right there.

Radio interview clowns and blog know-it-alls need to realize that ANY coach will not be very forthcoming about the specifics of a plan. Why would he be?

Not one single game played this year and the peanut gallery is already predicting the end of the world and doom and gloom. Makes me laugh. I guess I like to lead lead a more positive life instead of dissecting and parsing every little word of every interview, taking comments out of context, and then turning that around so that you can just take a big old dump on the 2015 season

“ Ultimately, I’m responsible. We all have to be better, starting with me….. Dwelling on anything last year is not going to help. It’s not fair to the guys not here. They gave a lot to our program.”

^^^^^^^^^^ And there you have it, from the man Himself. It's 100% ON HIM.

SinisterCane

11:30 a.m. Tuesday: Golden addresses state of the program, says changes have been made; Dolphins

PINEHURST --- For UM coach Al Golden, the massive undertaking of correcting the myriad problems that surfaced during the 6-7 debacle of 2014 couldn’t start quickly enough. So as his players dispersed following the flight home from the Dec. 27 Duck Commander Bowl loss to South Carolina in Shreveport, La., Golden instead drove straight to the office.

He worked that day, and the next one and 55 in a row overall.

“Being down and feeling sorry [for yourself] --- none of that can help you a bit,” Golden said Tuesday from the ACC Kickoff, where the conference’s coaches met with reporters. “We went right to work. Our coaches went to work. I met with every player more than once.”

Golden also traveled to Dallas to meet with Cowboys coaches and study their system, challenged each of his coaches to propose new wrinkles, consulted with athletic director Blake James and met with every single person at UM whose tentacles touch his program.

“I talked to every department, wanted to make sure all of our values and standards are the same,” he said. “If you’re expecting a different response but not changing the behavior, it doesn’t work. Everyone has to self examine.”

What emerged, Golden said, was a plan that featured substantive changes, many of which he cannot specify for competitive reasons.

But when asked if fans will see clear differences in play-calling and schemes, he said yes.

He said that’s partly because Brad Kaaya is capable of doing more, as a sophomore, than he was a year ago and partly because his defense is more experienced.

“We’ve changed a lot of different things internally,” he said. “Operations, recruiting, different approach with a lot of different facets of the program internally. There are a lot of subtle changes that aren’t as easily [noticed]. We’re excited about the response of the team. Very team-oriented group. We can’t get them out of the building.”

The objective, Golden said, was to make “sure we have one scoreboard and not a bunch of different scorecards. This isn’t golf. If you’re content because your area is good and we lost, it’s not good. We have one heartbeat right now. We’re all responsible for one scoreboard.”

Golden said it does him no good to discuss anything that happened with his program before Jan. 1 but did say of last season: “It wasn’t good enough. You can’t escape the scoreboard. It’s not, ‘My guys did well or my department did well.’ We’re all responsible for results.”

He declined to comment about several remarks that players have made in recent days, including former UM center Shane McDermott citing selfishness on last year’s team and Tracy Howard saying leadership was lacking.

“For me to go back to last year, it doesn’t help anything,” Golden said. “We’re so far removed from that. Seven months, 21 days from that. Ultimately, I’m responsible. We all have to be better, starting with me….. Dwelling on anything last year is not going to help. It’s not fair to the guys not here. They gave a lot to our program.”

Despite relatively low national expectations and the swirl of negativity around the program in recent months, two things delight Golden: how his players have stayed out of trouble and are holding each other accountable for missteps, and how the distractions of the NCAA investigation have finally dissipated, though Golden pointed out that UM is still on probation, with modest scholarship limitations.

“I came here to coach football, man,” Golden said. “I didn’t come to be the dean of discipline… I came to coach Raphael Kirby and… Darrion Owens and… Brad Kaaya. That’s what we’re doing. It’s fun. We’re not dealing with a lot of external stuff. We’re like, ‘Can we start tomorrow?’ The staff gets fuel from that.”

In previous years, “I’ve talked about a lot of things that have nothing to do with our football program,” Golden said. “Last year, we had to answer questions that were awful. It was about four years before I could get my message out. When you see players buying in and being excited about who they are and what they want to be, it becomes fun.

“There’s a lot of trust right now. There’s a bond right now in the room that we haven’t seen in a while. That’s been exhilarating to be around a team like that. When everybody comes on time or is early and has suggestions to make things better, that’s awesome. That’s what we need to keep doing. Get the distractions out of here. Hold each other accountable. I’m excited about the direction of our team.”

He said the fact players are spending so much time together, using the chess boards and card tables that Golden’s wife purchased for them, pleases him greatly.

“There’s a calmless and a poise about our team,” Golden said. “There’s a focus. We’re getting very good leadership. They’re not paying a bit of attention to anything on the outside.”

Golden deflected questions about the pressure on him to turn the program around, insisting: “I don’t feel pressure. I’m in a great organization. I am very fortunate over the last 18 months, a lot of changes at the University of Miami. A lot of things that weren’t there are there now. The training table, lights [installed on the practice field], what’s going on at [Sun Life Stadium with modernization]. I’m grateful to be at the University of Miami.”

Regarding fan and media criticism directed toward him, Golden said: “Nothing I can do about it…. When I got here, we were blindsided” by the NCAA investigation.

In an ACC media poll released Tuesday, UM was picked to finish third in the Coastal Division behind Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. Golden insisted anyone can win the Coastal this season.

“It’s incumbent on us to get it back to where we want it to be, and have a model that’s sustainable and can endure,” he said.

Because Terrance, those answers are obvious. 1) the offense was called to keep the D off the field. 2) because the ST coach is in over his head.

But by all means please explain why the LBs were in the end zone on that play... Obviously you have the answer and im all ears....

Anyways, it's the same ole' crap as last year. Players throwing players from the previous team under the bus...players not holding THEMSELVES accountable...SOS.

Better questions should of been why our offense scored only 17 points on their Defense which was worse than ours. And why our special teams was booty. But that actually requires being good at your job and not just trying to appease low hanging fruit. IJS.

1st of all, O was trying to ask the question in such a way so as to not come off like he's attacking the coach, so he went the self deprecating route. Second, O didn't say he has never seen the formation before... He said he never saw LBs 5 yards deep in the end zone in that formation.

It was a perfectly legitimate question, one that we've been asking on this blog for months, and it was asked in a respectful way. It was also another question for which Al Golden had no answer.

Go Canes

Lol.

The final minute of that interview was hysterical. Big O actually says "why don't you explain because I obviously don't know what I'm talking about".

He then follows up by saying he's never seen that formation before, to
which Golden tells him he should watch film every opponent that plays GT then.

That roly-poly tub of goo probably never played it down of football, but he decides to go in depth and question technique and positioning of an offense as complex as theirs with a D1 football coach.

Ass clown.

Unlike all of you who claim to know how the president is, I can tell you as a Yeoman in the United States Navy, Mr. Obama was very cool to us and always treated us with reverence. He has supported legislation that would expand benefits to enlisted individuals and would give credentials to skills learned while in service. The president has been very good to service members despite what you read on some other site. In fact, you couldn't possibly be more wrong. As awesome as the president is, Mrs. O is even better.

The only issue I had with the D against GT, was the Center being Uncovered. He was right on the OLB crashing the dive though, that's how we played it when Randy was here.

O did ask good questions, golden couldn't/wouldn't answer anything. Why did they line up in the end zone with the ball on the 1 vs GT? Because the player was supposed to crash down hard at the dive. Then why is he 5 yards back? Because we beat them the last few years. Are you changing the defense at all? Different alignments? We always evaluate everything.

The decline of the traditional American female (black and white)the last 20-30 years which used to be the backbone of this Country, is just stunning. How they allow themselves, as the truly superior gender to have literally litters of children, from multiple irresponsible partners that they cannot afford and must be supported by others is a moral breakdown of epic proportions that can never be sustained. Simply put, the more kids you have, the bigger the Government check to support ones lack of personal responsibility. (ladies, yes I know, the men have responsibilities too... but we are just as dumb today as we've always been when our knuckles drug on the ground. It's just that way with two heads and a plethora of women that continue to allow it to be so.)

Sorry for the personal morality opine coming from a whiteboy that grew up in the Gables in the 60's-70's-80's Youth Center and SW Miami Boys Club days... but I'll always remember the great times hanging out in the Old Grove with the Colzie, McGahee, Jenkins, Brown and many other families on game weekends for cookouts & Church and quality friends and family times... And that's just what people were back then. Hard working proud family units with Moms-Pops-Gram-Gramps-Aunties & Uncles that would WHOOOP some ASS as if any lil shorties EVER got out of line.

As a teacher, these young lil hoochie momma wannabe kids I see now a days main problems today are 1.) if they lose their damn cell phone 2.) if they can't get a job because they're so underqualified option #2 or #3 (right after continuing to look for a good job) is Bang Bus Porn as a viable option.

‏@flasportsbuzz
Golden reminds ACC media that "When I got here, we were blindsided.... We're still on probation." Said feels no pressure to turn it around.

Until the coaching staff gets their ish together on gamedays, no amount of player accountability will win games.

Kaaya just gets it!

Said last year Kaaya was too young and inexperienced do what he's doing now.

This is true, Kaaya said it Himself:

“I can't tell a guy who is four years older than me and has a kid or a guy who is about to get married [what to do],” Kaaya said. “I realized it when I first got in. I didn't want to come in and start bossing guys around.”

We can talk about blaming it on the players when:
-LBs aren't lined up 10 yards off the ball on the goal line.
-A one dimensional team isn't able to run the ball 15 times in a row vs a prevent D.
-The same short pass over the middle isn't hit over and over w no adjustment.
-The offense isn't called primarily to keep the D off the field.

Until the coaching staff gets their ish together on gamedays, no amount of player accountability will win games.

The accountability thing was big wen we were successful,

The accountability thing was big because they didn't have a choice LMAO! Can't find it now...but there's a more extended version of the Ed Reed speech, that features Coker giving this boring halftime pep talk, and the players lookin' at em' like He's crazy. Hell, the players in TUP2 said Coker was a "substitute teacher".

Just listening to the radio. Romberg says what he's hearing out of the Gables is finally what he's been waiting for. Nothing from the coaches, only players self policing.

Said last year Kaaya was too young and inexperienced do what he's doing now. Similarities to Dorsey is scary and without a guy like that it's very difficult to succeed.

UMike

The accountability thing was big wen we were successful, so I hope it is true, but we have heard that year in and year out in the per-seaon from returning players. Their not going to come out and blame a coach or system.

I do hope its true and it has an effect, but its one of those things you got to see to believe.

According to some on here:

90% coaches
10% players

Respect

If the CANEZ fall short of expectations it's safe to say the players wont get their pink slips

CaneRock

When the team loses, it's 100% on the coaches.

When the team wins, it's 100% on the players.

When the team gives it their all, and they still lose, a WELL COACHED team blames themselves.

That's not what I'm hearing outta Coral Gables these days...all I hear is a buncha confusion & denial.

So when he had it rolling from 2000-2003 seasons was it all just Butch and Larry. And I guess Ed, Ken, Sean, Vince, Kellen, Andre, Clinton, Willis, Vernon, DJ, Jonathan, Joaquin, Brett, Mike, Najeh, Matt, etc had no part in the success hub LOL hahaha pure freaking Comedy.

Players are responsible for the work ethnic and coaches are accountable to make sure it happens, these are all his players and his system/culture has been in place for 4 1/2 years. No EFFING excuse's win the coastal
