IDK, but I think Bama might lose 2 games this year...and I don't even see USC making the POs.

GoldenHomer

Right now OSU has 14, yes 14 4-Star players committed in the 2016 class. In addition they had 2 5-Star players committed, one from South Florida in Bosa. They have two 4-Star players from IMG Academy here in Florida. Their 2015 class also included 14 4-Star players. Their 2014 class included 15 4-Star players and 1 5-Star player. Sadly OSU will probably build a dynasty before Golden wins the ACC here at Miami.

UMike

CR, I agree..but with Saban you never know. I think OSU has a shot a repeating...maybe VT can knock them off again, would love that.

UMike

Urban Liar has always been a good recruiter, and winning a title helps...if we win more we will pick up more talent.

Still with the obsession. I guess I have a stalker now. You do realize you're really odd, don't you?

Go Canes

OSU has been recruiting like that for years. That's why their 3rd stringer is Cardelle Jones and ours was Gary Crow until Williams healed. When you have all the money in the world and can recruit guns blazing you get that result. When you don't, you get a version of where we've been.

Don't get me wrong, should have won more last year. But we were never a contender talent wise from 1-85 (or in our case 1-60).

For those saying 10 wins and a bowl win or else, I can't for the life of me understand how you can't see how far away from teams like OSU we still are.

I've said 10 wins here multiple times. I hope it happens. But 8-9 with the team playing well from start to finish and a bowl win is good for me, for this year. No coach should or will get fired if that happens.

We departing from Campus and ready to ride out. Go Canes!

Miami has been recruiting like that for years. Soup RAVES about Gray Crow, it's not like we haven't had kids they just don't pan or play . So are supposed to accept being mediocre while Al builds Miami to last for years and not winning and falling off ? Took Butch what 4 years to get to the top and leave ? And he was actually on sanctions with less players. But I guess Al gets a pass and this is what.. year 2 ? Okay

I'm in with you TS.

I love the preseason in sports when everyone is undefeated and optimistic.

Half the teams will lose on week 1 and reality will be settling in.

We were 6-7 last year and lost many key players. Vegas thinks very little of our prospects.

Yet here, there is lots of talk of 10+ wins and Coastal and ACC championships. I hope I'm just a jaundiced old fart who can't see the upcoming abrupt turn around. Still, I'll believe it when I see it.

UMike

Im with you Mountain Cane, I want it so bad...just have no faith Golden and his staff can make it happen. But I would love to come here and eat crow

laquinton

As would I

mountain cane

UMike I will gladly eat multiple helpings of crow

Terrance Sullivan

Lur-ker and 30Cinco U 2 are rolling with Us. Go Canes!

UMike

Looking at our schedule, FSU is the only team that has out recruited us....

2012 - Only FSU had higher class

2013 - FSU, Clemson & Neb had higher ranked clases

2014 - Only FSU had higher class

2015 - FSU, Clemson & VT

So it would appear we have more overall talent than everyone on our schedule but FSU and about the same as Clemson.

Go Canes

Took Butch what 4 years to get to the top and leave ? And he was actually on sanctions with less players.

Posted by: laquinton | July 29, 2015 at 01:20 PM

I wonder what you'd have said if this blog had been around after Butch's 3rd year when he was under .500 and lost 47-0 to FSU. And it took Butch six years to win more than nine games btw, not four.

Guarantee this is where the discussion turns to "real" sanctions vs "the cloud".

People acknowledge it, yes diminish the impact of it because they cant quantify the damage it caused.

Terrance Sullivan

Laquinton Butch didn't get us to the top until his 6th season. Come on Man. Smdh.

UMike

Butch also won 8 or more games 5 out of his 6 years here..he also won every bowl game he coached at Miami. And he actually had sanctions and larger scholarship loses. I am not trying to compare the two, or give Butch a vote...Im sure I would have been calling for his head after his 3rd year also...but to me Golden is not that coach, he will not rise us up and out of the darkness and into a consistent top 10-15 program. IMO

UMike

30...its true. There is a difference between the two. They both had an impact, but Butches had to be worse to deal with IMO.

Terrance Sullivan

Butch took over the program in the 1995 Season. So 1995,1996,1997,1998,1999, it wasn't until 2000 where we finished 11-1 Big East Champions, Sugar Bowl, Champs, State Champions, and ranked #2.

30CINCO

The greatest coach in the history of everything won 3 more games than both Golden and Randy after 4 years. Lets not act like it was championship city.

UMike

Golden has done a lot of good of the field...a lot...but has done absolutely nothing on the field that would allow me to have any faith in him.

UMike

Do you guys not like Butch Davis...or do you just like to downsize him to make Golden not look as bad?

UMike

Butch won 2 bowl games in his first 4 seasons...he had 1 bad season (97), the other years he won 8-9 games. Golden broke the 8 win mark once and hasnt won a bowl.

Again..Im NOT trying to compare them, I just dont get why people try to minimize is accomplishments.

30CINCO

Why would you or anyone feel someone is minimizing anything? They are facts. Butch won 3 more games that both Golden and Randy after year 4. The greatest coach of all time won 3 more games that the "worst" coaches of all time for some.

Things changed with Butch after people had no hope it would. Maybe they will change for Golden, maybe it wont.

LETS FIND OUT!

Sinistercane

ACC Championship or Bust

Terrance Sullivan

I got mad love for Butch just giving perspective. Some Canes fans need to at least know their history if they are going to make a bunch of assumptions. I don't hate Al or Love Al but he is the Head Coach of the team I love thus gets my support until he is no longer the head coach. I did the same with Howard, Jimmy, Dennis, Butch, Larry, Randy as well.

Sinistercane

Past is the Past, it's all about this year and if Golden turns it around I'll be the first to eat a dumpster Full of CROW

Go Canes

Posted by: 30CINCO | July 29, 2015 at 02:57 PM

Exactly. It has NOTHING to do with minimizing what he did.

Let's not forget Butch took over a team that had won the National Championship just a couple of years earlier. Within three seasons he was under .500. The same people comparing would have been calling for his head when things were darkest.

He lost 47-0 to FSU.

Imagine this crowd if that happened today.

Ouch.

Think I'll let things play out before making such grandiose assertions about what any coach is capable of when finally on even ground.

laquinton

Lol Terrence you are a funny guy. I'm gonna make sure I fact check everything before I post. It's a new football year. I'll be opened minded for Mr Golden. We shall see, hope he shocks the world.

WWIN

Golden out recruited EVERYBODY in the Coastal during the "cloud"... how did it stop him from winning it???

What did Butch do when he built his team vs what did Golden do when he built his team (2014)???

Go Canes

@bartonsimmons: Six committed players in the initial Top100 for 2018. Three of them are committed to #TheU: http://t.co/Pl7SzsbfKZ

Posted by: WWIN | July 29, 2015 at 03:32 PM

He won 5, 8 or 9 games, what's your point?

He didn't win 11 games, the only time in his entire coaching career he won double digit games in a season, his sixth year.

WWIN

^^^^^^^
Yeah when his team was built!

Golden had a team built last year and went 6-7 wit em!

We were actually doing better during the "cloud"... Bring the "cloud" back please lol!!!

WWIN

Look... I hope Golden surprises everyone this year but let's not act like all the facts are not on the wall tho! He's been doing the same for 10yrs

30CINCO

Tell us again why Butch didnt win the Coastal at UNC, his most recent stop? Basketball school huh? lol

#cutcliff
#amiright

WWIN

^^^^^^
EVERYBODY knows what Butch was building at UNC!!! You know what stopped it

And yo coach helped Cutcliff do it lol

30CINCO

LMAO!!

30CINCO

28-22, AND team was cheating.

WWIN

You comparing what a coach did at a basketball school to what a coach at a football school is doing???

Ask yourself this question... who's turning UM into a basketball school??? LMAO

#SayAnythingtomakeGoldenLookGood

Cutcliff laughs at your excuse generator, me too, lol

Doctor called, said my son has to have surgery, bankart repair. Said He has anterior & interior instability, basically they gotta go in there and tighten up His labrum...followed by 3-6 months rehab.

USAFCane

AG must go. It will be more of the same. Team had more talent than most other schools and finished 6-7. What would TCU coach do with Miami?

Anyways, I'll be in Miami mid Aug. Can I catch any Cane practices?

30CINCO

Car- Wish your son good luck and a speedy recovery.
