I believe so... we should win CONVINCINGLY!

VA Cane

Same with me raizecane....I would walk in that room with the BOT....show then the 38 in a row two state titles, 2 years Div 1 smallest starting corner in the nation, sandlot, Jr Hs, HS, college coaching creds....guys I got to college and pros......make em throw them greenbacks down!!!!!!!!

I think Butch has something to prove....he wants to show that he can do it....I dont doubt it.....some may not know who he is....but all ya got to do is read the article and see the vids...
everybody knows that TEAM....and those guys would vouch for Butch....look at the stars.....they could easily say to groups at the camps....I was recruited by and played for Butch Davis he knows talent.....and he does!!
It may not happen; I would be disappointed. I met Butch at a clinic...and spoke to him on the sidelines at a VT game....he was very nice....He knows this game!

It's either going to be Butch or Schiano.

"The donor said UM ended up eating $7 million by firing Golden on Sunday and not waiting until the end of the season. The buyout, the donor said, would have been about $4 million less had UM waited until after the season. But trustees, not James, the donor said, pushed the issue of firing Golden during Saturday's 58-0 loss to Clemson, the most lopsided in school history.

That said, UM apparently had the money to do it and will have the money to offer its next coach upwards of $4 million a season, the donor said. Golden, who was extended through 2019 after his first season on the job, was making $2.5 million, the 42nd highest annual salary for a head coach in college football according to USA Today."

This exactly why they are not going after a coach who is currently coaching. They would of waited and saved that $4M, (I know I would)! It's either going to be Butch or Schiano.

Raizecane,

I'd rather have someone who wants the position and understands the position than someone who's supposedly the next. I don't see this as someone 'pimping' himself, I see it as stating what he wants. He wants to lead the 'Canes! Let me ask you if you wanted a new job, would you wait it out or would you make it known and go for it? I like that he is going for it and did it respectfully after the axe came down. If you are a wait and see person, good luck to you in life! I like that he is going for it. The school needs that!

let me add

5) Pressure to win.

raizecane

So here is a question that some have asked....

Is the Miami HC position a "sought after" position?

The answer most are saying is no. Some of the reasons why
1) salary
2) facilities
3) no on campus stadium,
4) attendance is awful

Thoughts ????

They say that every couple of years. It usually means UM is about to start trending up!

I remember when Sean T died and one of the jackasses at ESPN said it was time to shut the program down! I was like, huh? He wasn't a student and he died defending his family from an intruder!

So yeah, a lot of pundits and rivals hate THE U!!

AfriCane

U have Stanford, an IV league school consistently good. U have scrubs like Memphis getting better. We've only been down for 12 years. All we need is a coach for crying out loud. We have the talent. Forget the stadium. If u win they will come. Facilities r upgraded.
Our haters just don't want us to come back up again. I want them all dead when we come back.

That UNC team was good, but nowhere near the caliber of 2001 UM, not even close. And Butch performed a MIRACLE at UNC, He FAR from underachieved in His time there.

Show it to those ignorant stuffed shirt over paid high and mighty ass kissing liberals on that BOT.....let them see the facts...how dare they long to return to those days....they were never there nor did they care....Blake James talking about a black eye...the Board, DS, the ADs and the damn fools they hired caused this death.....AlPa couldnt even imagine playing or coaching at that level....at least Clappy and Onion were there and knew about it.....I bet AlPa and NoDPa have 4 hour hard ons (from the viagra commercials) just wishing they could imagine playing at that level

This is football.....this is what I have coached for years and preach all the time....its real if you want to work for it....it aint in no folder or phamplet ....its on the field and in mens hearts!!!!

Good for you. I don't think he would have been fired had we lost by a field goal to Clemson. After the season, yes, no doubt. As it is, key members of the BOT were so passed, they forced Blake's hand according to several sources.

Sarasota 'cane

Before Saturday nobody was expecting a mid season firing because losing almost 60-0 was inconceivable.

Posted by: Lurker | October 26, 2015 at 04:54 PM

I called it after the CINN game. I did state that he might be allowed to finish the year for buyout reasons, but I clearly stated that he could not survive losses to FSU and Clemson and that a decision would be made after the Clemson game.

Va Cane

Shannon: And when you look back on it, those guys weren't the most highly-recruited players. They weren't high on the rating charts, they just wanted to WIN!

Soldinger: I always told (high school) kids 'If you want to see how good you are, come to Miami. Because the kids we recruit at Miami love to play ball. If somebody else is promising you the chance to start, and you want to go start, go there. I'm not promising you a starting spot. There are a lot of good athletes here. You're going to see just how good you are.'


Amen to both of them....they know. Randy could have been a savior knowing what he knew......he went totally in the opposite direction.....it was aching under Clappy....dying under Onion.....and died an awful death under AlPa.....so sad......

miamicane

I hope the bot is not stupid enough.to see the intellegence in Butch putting that team together...it doesnt matter how much you know or how good you coach if you cant pick the most talented players..the team wanted clappy to coach because they knew he wouldnt change the program ..they did not need to be coached lol they gave clappy two championships one was cheated

Va Cane

Minus the defense, that sounds like Golden. Dorsett, Walford, Duke, etc to compare to "developing studs". Golden had 7 guys drafted last year, so he put a bunch of guys in the NFL too.
Really? Nooooooo way....

Golden isnt even a real coach when you start talking about Butch....those guys above are nice players....they have to be....they do play....but read the names.....of the greats....not even close!

1. they got to the NFL on their own ability and drive.....they learned nothing here...from AlPa NoDPa....no way!

2 Those cats would never have been on the 2001-2003 teams.....not even close to being good enough.....they would have been sitting in the stands watching....no room for them on those teams!

Just read the article about that team....they ARE the greatest of all time.....hands down...
and we do have people here who say they were there and loved it....they must have been Ray Charles Stevie Wonder and Jose Feliciano....blind as shit.....to continually defend the product since 2003.....

Can they, sure. But why would they. Assuming Butch isn't the guy why not go lock up Schiano and call it a day?

Both Butch and Schiano want the job now. Crowder just made a great point. Would Mario be considered for this job if he didn't have Miami ties? They all said no. Crowder just broke down the ALA coaching tree and they all felt that Mario was the 8th best coach on the team.

It's master plans like these that I suspect are symptomatic of the reason for the problems you and I have had in the past between us on here during the former rain of error. Back to the lab I would suggest.

30CINCO

UM can talk/negotiate with a coach's agent behind the scenes.

It would be ideal to have a name as early as possible, but not mandatory.

A coach can say he is leaving and say he will coach their teams bowl game or even leave before the bowl season begins. Both scenarios have happened.

SinisterCane

I would like to be considered for the Miami HC job.

First day on the job I'll replace the band with Jam Pony Express DJ's

Ohio_Cane

Either I missed responses, or it didn't get answered, so I'll ask again...

Can we afford to wait for a coach who's currently employed and not being fired any time soon? ie: Herman, Fuente, Pagano, etc.

They can't speak to UM until their season is over, right? We need a coach hired ASAP, right?

It's almost November and recruiting season is getting shorter. I'm very aware that one recruiting class wouldn't make up for a coaching miss again, but still, there's very good options available now.

I have a good friend that spoke with Gruden last night.

He's been talking to the BOT since late last night.

No lie. It's gonna happen. I think it will snowball over the next several days and we'll get an announcement on Friday.
