theres been many new initiatives from the u as of late. one is the positive tweets from staff to counter negative comments. now u have U drills. might that be to show the skill of the coaches in response to bad coaching allegations from disgruntled fan? hmmmm!

Crawford quiting as a senior doesn't make sense. He's going to risk his draft status.

Why do these analysts continue to praise this max kid when Clive has looked better including the 40 yard dash.

Simply, golden is developing guys, as can be seen by the number of guys he sends to the NFL. But his scheme and game day is isht. And he doesn't put players in the best position to win.

I don't like the DL hire. I don't want to see anymore coaches from the golden coaching tree. It doesn't work.
Epi, as for this class, what's your take on Golden's take that the limited number of so-fl recruits this year is a function of the heavy OL class that was brought in, which is needed. His claim is fl was light in OL men this year & we can't just od on skill position regardless of need & because there's an abundance of that position.

Afri, I work with several Africans at Amazon at night. These guys are the real deal, and I am in a position that trains and teaches them, prepares them to be converted from temp to permanent positions. Funny, the position is called Coach and thats what my warehouse safety vest reads!!!! Ironic huh? Always at work, never waste time, never complain, hard workers, versatile workers, high achievers and appreciative of opportunity. They also have a great sense of humor; we laugh often!!! It is great!! I have recommended they be FT permanent for these and more reasons, and I have developed a great friendship with them. They trust me and know I care about them. I have had a couple leave for other positions in the area, and they kindly asked would I be a reference for them. I was glad to do so; they call and write to say thank you!!!! I have been very impressed and enjoy these young men as friends. I know they have seen things I can only imagine; they have told me stories. I see lazy young Americans who are spoiled and barely work; these men are so great to train and develop in their jobs. I love working with them, and care about them. It is a great feeling for me to have them as friends; I know you would be proud of them as well. I salute these young men, and know you have the same enduring high qualities they exhibit daily!!! Posted by: VA Cane | February 07, 2015 at 01:11 PM I hear you VA. my opinion of you is the god father of this blog and we all kiss the ring, lol! Africa is not a continent for the week. u get yourself up and make it happen. I went through manic depression after I moved to ny. I couldn't tell my father. because, u see, that's not in the African play book of life. u are expected and brought up to pull your self up and go for it. emotions, psychological ills and any other excuses r not recognized in the dark continent. so the ones that end up in America r giddy at the resources. they have achieved a lot with 10% of the resources back in Africa. they come here and are charged to achieve/succeed. refer to odogwu's cane access video piece.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | February 07, 2015 at 12:54 PM my point is to point out the ridiculous nature of some of your arguments when our teams start losing and to support soup's point about the fallacy of attributing every negative aspect to golden. - Who should we attribute the negative to, if not Al? What isn't Al's fault? common epi! u r one of the more intelligent bloggers here. your statement is both rhetorical & 'put down humor' against me, but I assure u i'm not offended. u cant possibly blame everything negative on Al. there is the Shapiro scandal, the on campus rape by the 2 line backers etc. and you definitely cannot take something that is not a negative and attack golden on it to claim its a negative. recruiting is not a negative no matter how much u want to claim SEC schools like Alabama r whooping our butts; they r top 5, we r top 15. only way for us to improve on that is by winning. without golden, coley, barrow, hurley brown, ice harris on this staff, we would/would have been top 45. look, golden failed and deserves to be fired for not winning, bad scheme, and game day adjustment. to me, these are his down fall. - Isn't what u just said all that everyone says? yes my fellow cane, its what everyone else has said. don't play clueless here epi. they've also said a lot more than that, including the unnecessary, like Michael Irvin been a crack head for defending golden (in public). You shouldn't listen to what we say about Al's recruiting. You should listen to Michael Irvin and Mike Rumph. Both said this week that Al is routinely out worked by SEC schools. MI said Tim went elsewhere because other schools developed relationships with him and that "you need to work to get these kids". Rumph seconded that, and also said he can't push kids to play in Al's schemes. refer to my point about recruiting. cant blame him for not developing talent with 10 players heading to the NFL. - His kids are coached up. What you see on game say is by design. Yes, initial contact is supposed to be 4 yards downfield Huuuhhh?? call a spade a spade and not a rake because u don't think the gardener is good at keeping the lawn looking good. appropriately blame his land scapping skills - Al has failed at most aspects of his job. Sounds like you agree. So what has you upset? not upset! just like u r not upset. this is cane debate/pontification/opining. Al has failed in the core aspect of his job but has done fine in others. i'm not looking to highlight his successes. he didn't win and that's a cause for headache for me. hes not getting fired this season. so lets move forward & support our team. back up. criticizing him hes not the problem. hes certainly earned it. but everything done to an extreme can be and is almost always damaging/toxic. we have past that point. whats worse is the barbaric and illiterate manner at which some bloggers, not only on here but on other sites have chosen to show their anger. and anger should also have a shelf life. not many on here r like you epi. I enjoy exchanges with you because u r more thoughtful and analytical, not just 'kill! kill!'

AfriCane, should I be reading your posts with a Nigerian accent? Lol, I served with so many Nigerians in the Navy that I can't help it. Posted by: The Dude | February 07, 2015 at 11:59 AM LOL dude! been here for almost 30 yrs and still didn't lose that accent. so u know some Naijas? tell these people. they don't know. if people knew how many Nigerians r in sports, they will be shocked; college bascketball, CFB, nba, nfl. sending an article to soup about that in the future.

we have so far had 3 losing coaches and when a fault in coaching/development is attributed to one coach, when the next coach fixes it, we then echo that fix as a fault. it was that the team was undisciplined under coker. in comes shanon who corrects that. shanon becomes the anti cane; he doesn't let our guys swag/thug out. he restricts them too much according to u guys. we criticized shanon's teams for been to small, not physical enough? now golden is emphasizing size and physicality. now hes obsessed with putting size on our guys? my point is to point out the ridiculous nature of some of your arguments when our teams start losing and to support soup's point about the fallacy of attributing every negative aspect to golden. look, golden failed and deserves to be fired for not winning, bad scheme, and game day adjustment. to me, these are his down fall. to accuse him of been bad at recruiting is ridiculous with a top 15 average recruiting classes over the past 4 year. silly to blame him for not recruiting florida. for the exception of this year, we've recruited our state well. we have a no.1 class next year that's all Florida. explain that, talking heads. cant blame him for not developing talent with 10 players heading to the NFL. call a spade a spade and not a rake because u don't think the gardener is good at keeping the lawn looking good. appropriately blame his land scapping skills

LSU coach Les Miles has a pretty straightforward take on in-state recruits: "If he doesn't wanna stay home, [to] hell with him." It appears as though Miles was talking about in-state recruits in general, not a particular recruit. To this, I say amen. That should be our attitude towards 'turn coats.'

me, I think golden should have been fired. he wasn't, lets move on and support the U. and to the person that said the nancies are not trying to be dicks and are really hurting. please stop! u guys are been dicks. not only that, u r affecting recruiting.

reasons y Al golden is gone if he doesn't win next year; no one in the history of coaching survives past the 5th year if they r not producing in a power house program. The 2016 no. 1 class must be saved at all cost. New president.

For the few bloggers that chose not to type the same nonsense everyone else is typing, thank you. For the rest, not that u r wrong about what's going on, but it's just gets old when everyone spews the same nonsense; 2 days, it's been going on.

Anyway! With our losing record, I still think we r doing well with a top 25 recruiting class. Just don't know y DTs r always a problem though. Again, the issue is not even getting a 5-star. A 7-star couldnt help if we can't coach him up. What I really would like is assembly a roaster of obscure no star talent that are angry and coach 'em hard to inflict pain on college football and then stick a finger up to the recruits that have snubbed us over the last 5 years.

Y r we blaming golden for losing Scarlett? Seriously, is it his fault? I'm asking a serious question because I'm not sure. I thought we fought hard to keep him. He looks like he flipped to the turds because of depth in our back field. He's also looking @ Walton & williams coming in. No matter, he's going to transfer after he gets injured two years in a row with two losing seasons.
