" That this is Al Golden’s program, he actually planted those seeds that left the program after last year, and if they’re bad, it’s his responsibility. " ################# And in my STUPID sort of way, I POINTED out that those starting Seniors and Juniors last season were ALL chosen by Golden and D'Onofrio. Don't U just love it when an ' educated ' former University of Miami, Florida alumnus opines the obvious. LOL But then again, that VISHNU is probably a Golden HATER.
Posted by: CaneRock | July 27, 2015 at 02:02 PM I dig it when the Golden fan club becomes so ANNOYED, when some myopic, dense PHONY Hurricane fan criticizes the SAVIOR of Miami football. LOL
The Golden loyalist act like recruiting is an EXACT science and what not. He!!, why even get all BENT about it. These kids commit and waver and decommit all the time. In other words, their word is only worth GOLD when they actually sign a LOI. No pun intended.
Posted by: CaneRock | July 25, 2015 at 11:51 AM And what about the goal-line stands against mighty Nebraska. Chit, that Herbie Cornhusker RB just waltzed into the endzone, because Miami WASN'T in some type of legitimate goal line defense. Heck, there were numerous twitter PHOTOS of some of the goal-line alignments the Canes were in. SMH
OK Golden loyalists, I'll compromise and say 2012 and 2013 seasons were seasons under the NCAA cloud. However, there was ENOUGH TALENT for Miami to finish with an 8-4 record in Golden's first year at Miami. And to continue with a moot point. Last year was ALL on Golden and D'Onofrio, for all the obvious reasons Mr. Hyde and others ( Feldman, Mandel, Myerberg, for example. ) have pointed out.
Don't get me wrong Golden fan club members or please don't misinterpret what I'm ranting and what not. Because Miami will surely continue to have winning seasons. Yet those winning seasons won't be the type Cane fandom are looking forward too.
Johnson was a good ol' boy from Arkansas, I believe. And he absolutely NEVER messed with the Miami Factor. Erickson wasn't from South Florida, and he NEVER messed with the Miami Mystique. Coker. The man is an OKIE from Muskogee for Zeus' sake. And he NEVER toyed with the Miami Mystique and naturally keptwinning with Davis' players. Unfortunately Coach Coker simply made too many recruiting BLUNDERS after the 2003 season and left a FALLING empire in the hands of that ONION HEAD. Whom passed on the Keys of the FALLEN Kingdom to Golden. Unfortunately, Golden and D'Onofrio just don't want anything to do with the Miami Mystique and what not. And last season is an absolute indication of that becoming reality. Again, in Golden's press conference he said he was going to CHANGE the CULTURE of Miami, Florida Hurricane football. And if U can't connect the Orange and Green dots on what the statement implies and what not. Then may Zeus and Buddha have mercy on thee.
Miami was winning consistently up to the 2005 season WITHOUT the ' wow ' factor of facilities. Chit, the Hurricanes seemed to do OK having winning seasons and championships in '80's, 90's and earlier portion of the 21st Century. And the single main ingredient which kept the Canes winning all those decades was the Miami Factor. A keen factor which ALL head coaches kept, and built on, since Howard moved on. Then U have two INTERLOPERS whom absolutely ERADICATE the Miami Mystique! Even Golden said he was CHANGHING the culture of Miami, Florida Hurricane football! Of course, one could say that the AD was involved with ERADICATING the Miami Factor, also.
Isn't Golden also a Pysch major. Because if he is, then he and D'Onofrio are sure doing a pizz poor job of recruiting players. Simply because 85% of the motivational aspect is SELF-INDUCED and either 15% or 20% is from an external source, i.e. head coach, coordinator and position coach ( SEE Mickey getting in Rocky's face for motivation and what not. ).
" But what is the lesson from last year? They were Golden recruits ( EMPHASIS ADDED ). They grew up in his system ( Again, EMPHASIZE STATEMENT ). When Golden talked before his first season after taking over for Randy Shannon, he put an emphasis on one word: Finish. That meant tackles, games, seasons, everything. " Dave Hyde Sports ************************* Mr. Hyde SECONDS my notion regarding SENIORS and JUNIORS. Players whom were in the system for four or three years. Players whom were HANDPICKED by Golden and D'Onofrio! No siree, Golden apologists. EIGHTY PERCENT of the blame for last season's EMBARRASSING season falls on Golden and D'Onofrio. And Golden loyalists. U can put 20% of the blame on the players.
we gotta get the opponents backs running to the side lines and not running down hill in the hole. The only way is to beat their o line by penetrating into the backfield. Our team does not contest the line of scrimmage because we are playing two gap and getting pushed around on the line and our backs are in the typical prevent defense position. We are losing these games because our d cannot get the o of the field and we are not in the right position at the snap of the ball. We lose the game at the snap of the ball. lol Posted by: mi@mic@ne | July 24, 2015 at 04:34 PM Last season's Nebraska road game is a prime time example of what miamicane is alluding to above. Hell, that Herbie Cornhusker team ran the ball over and over and over and naturally ran TIME off the scoreboard clock. Chit, there for at least three instances in the crucial second-half, that Miami had opportunites to get the ball back, but Nebraska converted 3rd and long. And all conversions were RUNNING PLAYS!

FWIW ESPN FPI index projecting Miami W-L is 7.5-4.7. *************** This. Chit, the above formula is within the mean of my ' 7-5 ' prediction. Go figure. And the two variables I base my dour, negative forecast on is Golden and D'Onofrio. Nothing more, nothing less.

Posted by: herbieibis | July 23, 2015 at 02:34 PM It seems the VOICES of REASON have resoundingly TRUMPED the Golden fan club. LMFAO Man, it's so nice to peruse opinions which AREN'T clouded by the murky Golden Light.

I'm still sticking with ' 7-5 ' in 2015.

Feldman, Mandel and Myerberg speak TRUTH to power! Nothing more, nothing less. Oh. Doesn't that latter sir names sound like some freakin' law firm. LOL Unfortunately, Miami's AD has Golden's Golden backside COVERED. If U Know What I Mean, and that will result in further duress and heartache for TRUE, LOYAL Cane fandom.

Urban has talent out the wazoo. Posted by: CaneRock | July 24, 2015 at 05:48 PM WINNING draws all that FIVE-STAR or FOUR-STAR talent to Columbus, Ohio. Of course, regardless of the man's TYRANT, ARROGANT personality. He's been a winner at every program he's coached.

Miami's last three recruiting classes were all ranked NO. 12 or higher. I even believe the Hurricanes had a NO.9 ranked class the past three seasons. So, so much for the NCAA cloud messing with the Canes recent signings and what not. Now dig this Golden loyalists and satraps and what not. Both TCU and Baylor HAVEN'T HAD any Top 25 recruiting classes the past FIVE seasons. Yet those two programs have reaped the benefits on the field of competition in STARK CONTRAST to Golden and D'Onofrio. SMH Again, to harp and belabor a simple point. The VAST MAJORITY of starters last season were either juniors or seniors. And HANDPICKED Golden and D'Onofrio recruits. Yet Cane fandom knows what happened in '15.

Steele's INFATUATION with the Golden One continues unabated. Miami, Florida is NO.25 in Phil's current Power Poll. Go figure.

TCU, Baylor doing more with less " Baylor and TCU both ranked in the top 6 of the final College Football Playoff rankings, despite neither having a single top-20 recruiting class in the last 5 years. Baylor's best ranking was 22nd in 2014 and TCU's best was 37th in 2015. " ESPN.com ############ On the other hand. Under Golden, Miami has had THREE Top 12 recruiting classes ( One class was ranked NO. 9, I believe. ) and the Hurricane's finish 6-7 in Golden's FOURTH season. SMH Oh. One more thing to ponder. In Golden's fourth season, the Hurricanes have the LONGEST LOSING streak ( 4 games ) since the 1976 campaign. Go figure. Chit, even that Onion Head never had that many losses in consecutive weeks.

" Why did a team that produced seven draft picks in 2015 -- the second-most since 2006 -- and had six others sign free-agent deals, go 6-7 last year? The Canes finished under .500 for only the third time in 35 years. " Dennis Dodd, CBSSports.com ************* Oh. One more thing. ONLY two of Miami's starter's last season were ONION HEAD recruits. And both were starters and drafted by the NFL, i.e., 3rd Round and 4th Round selections. Head coach in his FOURTH season and he leads the program to a losing season. Now that's rich. By the way, ALL the starters were Golden and D'Onofrio recruits. So that EXCUSE most Canespace fandom, but NOT all, come up with... Well those players are ONION HEAD's malcontents and what not. LOL

Well there were THREE players, among a horde of others, Golden SUBTLY ran out of Coral Gables. And one was a 2nd round NFL draft choice and the other two players both STARTED for their respective new schools in 2014. Matter of fact, one of those players won TWO PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Week awards and made conference HM. Go figure.

If anybody wants to feel really good about the direction this team is heading... Then do yourself a favor and don't listen Goldens interview w Golden. He just talks in circles doing his best to evade answering anything. Zagacki played the good company man and tried to answer for Al with his questions, but he just came off like the suck up he has to be. Posted by: 1mg of Epi | July 21, 2015 at 01:36 PM Thank Zeus and Buddha too, for the likes of UMIKE, 1mg of EPI and like-minded kin. For they keep the Golden loyalists in CHECK with their refreshing takes and what not. Again, as I allude to above. It was all a Golden SMOKE and MIRRORS in Carolina Blue.

Didn't some former Hurricane player mention that Golden would make a SUPERB SALESMAN. Well Albert is at it again. With the recent smoke and mirrors antics in Carolina Blue. Let's wait and see how Miami stacks up against both Nebraska and mighty Cincinnati and FSU. Because those are the only legitimate opponents in the opening five games.

As far as Os line of questioning goes, I think your being unfair. First off, that one play was representative of alignments that we have seen for several years. Is any one play ever the sole reason for a loss? Nope. But the question spoke to a larger problem that everyone from bloggers here to professional media both local and national have been scratching their heads over for since Al has been here. The problem isn't that O asked an unfair question. Saying so is just misdirection. The problem is that the head coach of our beloved U had no answer. Posted by: 1mg of Epi | July 22, 2015 at 11:33 AM Another VOICE of REASON somewhere in muggy South Florida! Or an enclave nearby.

I am still sticking with my early June prediction. Miami, Florida Hurricanes 7-5 And a yet to be determined FOURTH-TIER obscure bowl game. Hopefully Miami won't have to play in Gotham City and FREEZE their bloody arse's off. lol
