Go Canes Yep WWIN got a losers mentality.

TonyCane

Lol Terrance...are you referring to Donna?

SinisterCane

Correct me if I'm wrong but has a coach received an extension on a 3 game skid?

Terrance Sullivan

Sure I am referring to Donna, Tad, and the Athletic Directors at those times.

Not until now.

But it goes with a piece of key lime pie from Jimmy Johnson's restaurant in Key Largo so I guess it is OK? Oh wait, Richt has NOT met with JJ as far as we know? #FalseRumors

#FakeNews

Terrance Sullivan

Lol actually he has at the UMHOF and actually on Campus before the Syracuse Game.

TonyCane

Lol Terrance...it was all one amorphous blob of defeat and penny pinching.

Terrance Sullivan

Yeah okay Tonycane. Yeah we were just doing great and taking care of everything in the 80's and 90's as well wasn't we but had facilities worse than some high schools much less low level colleges or much less power 5 schools, didn't want to pay coaches and as soon as coaches won enough they dipped. But sure just blame Donna for everything. Tad was a penny pincher as well. But evidently you have a aversion to the truth. Some of Us can say yes Donna didn't do the best job, but I also know Tad was no better. Our AD's were okay but no Great Shakes either. Any more questions Tonycane or are you going to act like WWIN and just sidestep and act silly. I always lol at those who act like the president only matters. Why do you have AD'S for you know the people who run the Athletic Department but you never talk about them. Weak Sauce. WWIN comes with what if Coach Richt is fired in 2 years but says he has the ultimate winner in Malik so what is it WWIN lol. U guys are batting a 1000 today. Pure Comedy!

JCane

The U blows the lead in the 7th and 8th, but scores 2 in the 9th for the 8-7 win over Bethune Cookman. Riding a 3 game win streak into the third game of this series, any shot of a postseason bid (unlikely) now involves almost perfection the rest of the way. They still have two more ACC series left in B.C. and V.T., and need to find a way to get the total and ACC records over .500.

Go Canes!!

WW I know you get confuused when things get complicated but that one comes totally out of left field, even for you.

Why do I "hate" him now?

Cause I said I wasn't sure if he'd be the right fit for us here right now?

Come on.


TonyCane

Terrance, I might have been unfair, but this is how I see it:

1) Tad Foote - did not spend huge amounts on the athletic program, but the coaching salary escalation and facilities arms race were not yet underway. We had poor facilities - I've read Cane Mutiny and they were so bad in the late 70s that Schelly wouldn't show them to recruits - but it was partially par for the course. Several NFL teams - including the Dolphins - had subpar facilities that were barely better than high school level.

2) Donna Schalala - Coaching salary escalation began in full force at the beginning of her tenure, as did the facilities war. She chose to be conservative and gamble that giving Randy Shannon the resources for a low cost staff would allow the winning and revenue to continue, and it didn't. We got lapped for Florida and a milieu of other schools as we fell further behind. No nuritionists. No meal plans. Players eating once a day - at McDonalds and leaving the U in 2010 weaker than they arrived as freshmen. This was all known. Golden pushed for upgrades - and didn't even get the nutritionist until 2013. Shalala and the admin chose to run a budget program at a time when other schools were spending tremendous amounts of money, and we came perilously close to being left behind.

TonyCane

And Terrance, I don't blame Donna exclusively. The AD and admin share blame. Perhaps the penny pinching was no worse under Shalala than with Foote - that could be the case. Perhaps it just became that much more obvious when the coaching salary escalation and facilities war began st the beginning of the 2000s

Terrance Sullivan

Okay Cool TonyCane. I can Dig It Brotha. We are on the same wavelength now.

Terrance Sullivan

Our Canes Baseball Team is Bloody Awful this year. SMH.

At no point did Al Golden look like a good hire.

JCane

U baseball wins 4th in a row and completes sweep over bethune cookman today, although in ugly fashion. Ugly is the only way they win. Blew an 11-4 lead before scoring 1 in the 9th to win 12-11. I'll take wins anyway I can get them at this point. The win gets them a few games over 500 at the Light at least. Road has really sucked..

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly JCane!

WWIN

Great idea offering a coach that said "THIS IS MY LAST STOP, I'M RETIRING HERE" in year 3 of his 5yr contract! Recruits were really nervous wondering who our coach will be 4yrs from now!

Same fans that kept believing in Golden!

That is a BOLD FACED lie.

And U know it.

86Cane

He was basically the same guy as Jimmy Johnson when UM hired him.

Posted by: 86Cane | May 06, 2018 at 10:39 PM

Some of us knew he was a sh*t hire day one.

SinisterCane

If CMR continues this unfundamental offensive sh!t show in yr. 3 then he's just another Faildon

U are a sack of lying shyte.

Terrance Sullivan

LoL

AeroCane

Good morning
In a bit of off topic news:
Andrew Suarez got his first win of his career for the SF Giants over the Braves! Hopefully the first of many more for our ex Cane!

PS for those that know me and my daughter - she is deciding between UCLA law or vandy law - entertainment and sports so Ucla is #1 but far away - we will see

Go Canes!!

I remember all three being popular choices, probably because they were.

And I remember all three falling from grace for very different reasons, with this prgram ending in a similar place.

Now they are gone and CMR is here. Their failures are not his failures and his successes are not their successes.

One has a hall of fame resume, the others had limited success before and virtually none after.

You dont make decisions on a coach whos top 5 in active coaching wins based on the fact the people before you f-ed up three prior hires.

Smart, long term thinking people with a plan dont function that way. Stupid people with only the capacity to look backwards to decide what to do going forward do that.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: AeroCane | May 07, 2018 at 09:41 AM

Wow, congrats to her on that major accomplishment!!

Go Canes!!

One more thing.

Donald Glover is one of the greatest talents I've seen in a long, long, long time.

Terrance Sullivan

Congrats Aero

Community.

Go Canes!!

Loved it.

Atlanta now.

TonyCane

The contract extension is not surprising. It is done for a few reasons, and none of them have to do with UM largess:

1) CM Richt has not intentions of leaving, but if two years from now UT, Alabama, or an NFL team were to make an offer, we would have wanted to have kept his salary on pace with the escalation in coaching payouts

2) It sends a message to recruits that UM and Richt are committed to each other. I think its highly likely that other coaches are telling recruits that Richt might leave, and if we waited until the final year to extend him it probably raises some doubts.

My guess is that the extension is due to these, and probably more of the former.

86Cane

Tony...I agree. It is to show L/T stability in the program at the top. No complaints here.

Any More Questions?

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | May 07, 2018 at 03:02 PM

I have one.

Will WWIN constantly hanging from Rosier's nut-sack prevent Malik from having children later in life?

Also, Richt inherited a 6 game losing streak to FSU and thats over, he also won the Coastal.

86Cane

Any More Questions?

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | May 07, 2018 at 03:02 PM

All good points, well taken.

Now, about the offense...can we fix that?

Also very good points. And beat Notre Dame!

NEW BLOG IS UP!

It also seems like during the last decade, we never really knew if Miami actually had the best team in the Coastal... VT, GT and UNC all had good teams from one season to the next. Those teams still do have their nice squad every so often but Miami is clearly the favorite in any matchup now. We got this train moving.
