You can't make this stuff up:

Joe Philbin (and UM’s Al Golden, for that matter) are big on slogans; Philbin hung them all over the Dolphins facility and UM – under Golden – pasted inspirational quotes from Golden, Bill Belichick, Rick Pitino and others near urinals, sinks, hallways, etc.

Urinals? Really?

If going to the bathroom feels like "brick by brick" to you, better change your diet or go see a doctor. This message has been brought to you by Al Golden. Oh my.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Makes me wonder. Because coaching matters only up to a point.

You're either a self- motivated person or you're not. A coach can't ever motivate an unmotivated person if they don't have it in them. And what I seem to be seeing in Colin is complacency. Losing your mojo is on you, not the coach. The team is way worse without Harbaugh, but Kapernick sucking is on him. Zero leadership.

Posted by: Lurker | October 22, 2015 at 10:52 PM

Yes and no because people change. CK might no longer be motivated after losing his HC. The military changes unmotivated people into motivated people all the time, I've seen it. When some guys get out, they lose it, other guys keep it forever. A great leader (which is what a HC is) like Harbaugh motivates everyone and everything they touch. When everyone is selling out for the HC, and the HC knows how to win, everyone plays better. The whole system is gone. Yes they've lost players and that matters, but more than anything they've lost the way they do business and in certain endeavors this means almost everything. It's why certain coaches can turn everything around so quickly. Look at Alex Smith, JH saved his career. Harbaugh wins because he's obsessed with winning.

VfB_Cane

But in a macro sense, teams with a lot of athletes who move fast and play hard are going to get flagged more often.
The Power 5 teams with the most penalties since Golden was hired at Miami are Oregon, Baylor, UCLA, Texas Tech, USC, Washington, Cal, Florida, Virginia Tech and Florida State. The Canes rank just a tick worse than Ohio State and just a bit better than Georgia in terms of total penalties.

And so the problem for Miami isn’t that they’re getting flagged, because plenty of good teams get flagged. The problem is that Miami hasn’t won enough -- with or without penalties -- for Golden to avoid being blamed for the flags.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ What kind of penalties also? I don't think false starts on the first snap are because someone plays fast and hard. Okay targeting, sure, pass interference whatever, even offsides could all be from playing hard and fast. We just dont know what the hell is going on.

Trayvon Mullen recently decided he'd take an unofficial visit to LSU this weekend to watch the Tigers' homecoming game against Western Kentucky. He'll fly out to Baton Rouge Friday morning instead of checking out the UM-Clemson game like he originally planned.

On top of FSU and LSU, Mullen figures he'll take official visits to Clemson and TCU and will have to figure out a fifth. He wants to knock out a decision in January.

Binjimen Victor still insists his recruitment is wide open.

He's already taken official visits to West Virginia and most recently Ohio State, and says Tennessee, Florida, Louisville and Auburn are all in the mix for his last three official visits.

Victor plans to make his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Game. He discusses all of the above, his three touchdowns on Thursday plus hanging out with Sam Bruce in Columbus, Ohio in the video interview below with the Miami Herald.

Coach L is a great coach and motivator. He has a great feel for talent, and he knows how to develop players from both a physical and psychological standpoint. Coach L has really recruited a good group of young men and he exudes confidence and success. I am a big coach L fan!

There's only so much a good sales pitch or networking can do when you're not winning.

Just check the sports media: You'll barely find anything on the Hurricanes if you check SI, ESPN, or Yahoo on the web. Even Temple is getting more media attention than us these days, and it pains me to say, rightfully so.

We have to start the big ones like tomorrow (undefated top 5 team) and if we do, go on to win the other games as well.

CIS:

What happened to the power running game.

No I formation. No Ace. No lead blocker. We run a limited amount of pistol but we telegraph everything. Every pistol run is off tackle., predominately to the right. Every shotgun is always to the opposite side of where he is lined up and is almost always to the right.

BEERicane

I'm here in Houston and we are bracing for torrential rainfall this weekend. Forecast up to 17 inches in Austin, 10+ through San Antonio. Houston might escape it if the models are correct (a lot can change), but keeping my fingers crossed. I can only imagine what Mexico is going through now. What a disaster.

Posted by: SinisterCane | October 23, 2015 at 09:16 AM

I was thinking something similar to this the other day. Golden has used the phrase "got to be multiple" when speaking of his defense (which I think may have been an attempt to justify his failed system) but on offense we don't see it. We are very telling on offense. We run a read option, with no option. The only option I see is to hit the slant, but its only a matter of time before opposing DB's jump this play.

Does anyone remember a couple years back when we used a formation with Malcolm Lewis as the only WR split out wide? EVERY time in that formation, we ran the ball. If an every day fan like myself knew it was coming you can bet other teams did. Definitely think something needs to be added, to predictable

Lurker

Yep, Willis was the heart of that defense, but as I understand it ownership let several good players go, and couldn't get along with the coach. SF went from looking almost unbeatable in the NFC 2 years ago, to a bottom tier team.

Also, Kap has gone from looking hard to looking soft, and it's not just coaching. Some people don't handle fame and riches well.

It's early and anything can happen, but right now, Cam Newton is looking like the NFC MVP, after 6 games. Other than Olsen, there's not a lot of weapons on that team and they haven't lost. At the end of the season, I think you're looking at GB, Seattle will come back, possibly/probably Carolina if Cam stays healthy, Giants (don't see Philly &'Dallas) from the East, maybe Atlanta & one other.

AFC is a little harder to predict other than NE.

Our O is predictable because the check downs are obvious. When the D gives us a certain look, we check to a play that everyone knows is coming. It's why we suck on third down, the D gives us a look and calls our plays for us. It's seriously barely above high school stuff.

Posted by: Lurker | October 22, 2015 at 10:52 PM

Not really. the coach sets the tone and either inspires or doesn't inspire athletes to get things done. If a coawch is gettign through to most athletes, then its on the ones who aren't working. But if the coach is not getting through, if the team looks dull and disinterested in general, that's on the coach.

It's been my experience that a person that's internally unmotivated doesn't respond. Coaches can coach people that they can get through to. Which isn't everybody. That's why coaches get rid of players or sit their asses down. In business, those are the people you fire. They constantly bitch and don't get anything done, and take up too much of your time.

We're 13-25 run on 3rd down over our last few games.

IMO the biggest reason, not the only one certainly, for our pathetic conversion rate has been our continual inability to avoid 3rd and long because of penalty.

And its been mine, as a coach and as the father of athletes (as well as the uncle of others), that a poor coach is responsible for team-wide lethargy, or lack of attention to detail, or inconsistent effort. Coaches, business management, etc. can't make people pay attention. But there are very few people in any occupation or sport who won't respond to anyone. I coached 31 girls in 3 seasons this year, only 3 (occasionally) wouldn't respond to anyone when they weren't getting their way.
Kap isn't playing well for a number of reasons. Defenses have figured out his strengths and his team isn't even close to the same unit he had two years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if he is cut in June, not because he isn't working but simply because he isn't that good. But if he were the only problem on the team, the Niners would sit him and start Gabbert.
