"49-49 is mediocre at best, definitely not UM standards for a HC." * *“What the hell do people want?” one high ranking UM Board of Trustee member said. “Does anyone realize what the NCAA thing did to us? That team this year was an ordinary team, and we went 9-4. It will take three years to build this up, but this is the right guy to do it.” you can't compare the two programs. We can recruit at their level now, so we'll see what's what. You all fail to acknowledge the N.C.A.A. mess. Plus, we were a healthy Duke from being 11-2 at worst last season, and since it will be game one, with a healthy Duke , we will beat them this coming season.

You keep being happy with mediocrity, you're part of the new UM fan base who don't have a clue and are stupid enuff to believe we don't have the players, keep listening to those penn disgrace morons who don't know much, pretty soon, they'll be gone one way or another. Posted by: Calvin | January 24, 2014 at 01:26 PM ___________________________________________________________________________ The head moron has already tried to lay the foundation for future excuses when he said about kevin olse a True freshman now, "he has to own the process". What coach in their right mind is already talking about there True freshman qb to the media knowing full well this man was redshirting. Here's what we know: The breaking in a new qb excuse can't be used, see Florida St. as well as the ville that we'll be opening up against! The "own the process" excuse can't be used either, crow(our very own jameis winston scout team impersonator) has owned the process since he's been here, let's see what the process has done for him, who recruited ad signed him. We will have a staff that's been together longer than Fsu or the ville, let's see what continuity gets us, wake forest as well, don't mess round and let the wake coach come in and start winning big right away. For this moron to ask that stupid question "wth do they want" Has he not realized he took the Miami job, he rattled off all the Great UM stats he memorized when he came in, now all of a sudden he wants to ask a question as if he doesn't understand the level of play that's supposed to be played at UM. Posted by: Calvin | January 26, 2014 at 05:13 PM __________________________________________________________ So Calvin, when Charlie says we're not there yet is different than when Al says we're not there yet??? When Charlie says: "We have everything available, and I don't know why we can't be successful," Strong told fans in Fort Worth during the first stop on his bus tour, according to the Austin American-Statesman. "There's no reason for us not to be. Now, I can't tell you how soon it's going to be. Don't hold me to that. Don't say, 'Ooh, coach said next year we'll be in the national ...' We will not be in the national championship game." How is that different than when Al says we're not "back" yet? Or when an administrator says: “What the hell do people want?” one high ranking UM Board of Trustee member said. “Does anyone realize what the NCAA thing did to us? That team this year was an ordinary team, and we went 9-4. It will take three years to build this up, but this is the right guy to do it.” ??? The difference is Charlie believes he has "everything available..." and "there's no reason for us not to be...successful" at UT, but in the same instance cautions expectations by saying "I can't tell you how soon it's going to be. Don't hold me to that." How do these statements make him "a real headcoach"? He sounds like the way you try to make Golden sound about dumbing down expectations for the sake of keeping a job.. Not to mention the N.C.A.A. bomb that we've been recovering from and finally got clear of 6 months ago. Despite that you all love to paint the current staff as excuse-makers... What's Charlie's excuse? He has everything out program doesn't but you prop him up for having lower expectations for his program? Al talks about the players and he's bad. Charlie says the players "feel they are a little better than what they are" and he's "a real headcoach"? And no need to bring up the fact that Louisville spanked []_[]s; I saw the game. Talk about why you're contradicting yourself.

Love the way Golden and co is building this team. I like what we have on the field and the remainder of the class coming in the next several weeks will bring depth and competition. This current commitments to the next class are a good foundation. All we need to do is close with some of the local kids and a few surprises. Love where things are going. Looking forward to Kaaya coming in. I can't see us getting Cronkite and Patrick after Williams committed. That will be interesting to watch. Cronkite better commit and stop playing games.

The University of Florida Gators are coming to town this Saturday for a football game against the University of Miami Hurricanes. So now is a good time to reflect on UF's long history of racism. For decades, the Gainesville school's overseers were instrumental in preventing African-Americans from getting a higher education. Between 1945 and 1958, 85 black students applied for admission to UF, and all were rejected. One of those applicants, Virgil Hawkins, fought his rejection all the way to the Florida Supreme Court, where the chief justice, Stephen C. O'Connell, was a segregationist who would later become UF's president. Not surprisingly, the state's highest court refused to integrate. The school didn't admit its first black undergraduate students until 1962. Willie Jackson Sr. and Leonard George, the first black student-athletes to play football at UF, were among only 343 black students. When the black student union staged a protest about the disparity, 66 students were arrested and O'Connell insisted on pressing charges. As a result, a third of the black students and several black professors left UF. In the past decade, UF twice passed over an African-American, Charlie Strong, for the top coaching position. The defensive coordinator served as interim head coach for a bowl game in 2004 but was quickly cast aside for superstar coach Urban Meyer. Strong stayed with the Gators for five more years, molding a stout defense that helped the school win two national championships. He expected a fair opportunity for the head coach's job once Meyer hung up his whistle. But when UF officials begged Meyer to stay on for one more year after the 2009 season, Strong saw the writing on the wall. So he accepted the head-coaching vacancy at the University of Louisville, where he's built a powerhouse. In a January 2009 interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Strong expressed his belief that race was part of the reason he wasn't offered the gig at Florida. He got the last laugh, though, when his Louisville Cardinals whomped the Gators in the Sugar Bowl this past January 2. That's why I can't wait for kickoff. The Canes are gonna roast those racist Gators. 21-16.

Alabama lands 3 from South Florida in Shawn Burgess-Becker, Calvin Ridley and Jovon Durante... Read more here: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2014/04/um-news-basketball-player-james-kelly-to-transfer.html#storylink=cpy Who cares, who cares, and who cares. Two are Broward boys and they're committed, not signed. If it was Johnson or Irvin then it would look bad, but it's not, so who cares. IF Mark Walton went to Alabama then that's different. Fence rider diva kids from outside Dade can bounce. No love lost. Broward and Dade counties always had the silent resentment for each other so it's all good. Hopefully we see those boys down the road. You love []_[]s!

The City of Miami Beach will host a town hall meeting at 6 p.m. on April 23 to discuss how the proposed soccer stadium at PortMiami might impact the city and the MacArthur Causeway, according to Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine. Miami Beach commissioners recently passed a symbolic vote in opposition to the port location for a stadium backed by David Beckham. The town hall meeting will be held in the Miami Beach Commission Chambers, which are on the fourth floor of City Hall, which is located at 1700 Convention Center Drive Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/04/15/4061846/miami-beach-to-host-town-hall.html#storylink=cpy Yup. All real diehard cane fans should go and advocate for our new stadium.

Olsen will bounce back. He has a gunslinger mentality and I think if he learns the offense and settles down he'll be fine. I still believe in him, but i'm eager to see Kaaya do his thing.

Coley is the new OC and he's the talent evaluator now. Let's see what he does. This is the first full recruiting season under the current regime.

Yup "Tampa Freedom defensive end Scott Patchan intended on taking visits to other schools and exploring his options. But today, at Miami’s spring game, Patchan decided the wait was over. He decided to commit to the Hurricanes and follow in his father’s footsteps." "West Orange running back Dexter Williams gave his pledge to Miami on Saturday."

Mix the green and orange unis with the white top and bottom and they will look good. That's what we are used to as []_[] fans. That's what we do. Put that green top on the white pants with the black socks and shoes. People here would be creaming themselves.

Posted by: Canes bro... | April 10, 2014 at 10:50 PM I thought the same thing before I read the quote. "Kyle had all the ability. Running, ball flight, all that. Olsen does as well," Torretta said. "He moves around the pocket well like him. It's speeding up the decision making process that's the key. Because it's going to get a lot faster on Saturdays than when he's out here." He has the tools like Kyle, but needs to be a better decision-maker than Kyle was... That's what separates a bust from a star. The mental aspect to go along with physical gifts. This kid was a coaches son, so he knows the game. If he puts the time into studying film, working with WR and manages tempo, he will be fine and the game will slow down for him sooner than later.

Play fast! Offense is about tempo! Good to hear Coley emphasizing that. http://www.hurricanesports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=28700&ATCLID=209457982

Yup Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano attended UM practice this week, leading some fans to wonder (on messages boards and elsewhere) whether he could re-surface at UM. But the Miami athletic department said on the record today that there are no discussions about Schiano taking a job with the Hurricanes.

Olsen will start. Even Jameis red-shirted. If Kayaa can come and start either he's the second coming or Olsen is that bad.

Your last lines are spot on, pine county. "they're different coaches with different strengths who happen to have the exact same record. Leave Shannon in the past. Hopefully Golden can earn his salary this year and turn it around." Succinct. i do't really expect THAT much from AG this year, other than we'd better be more competitive against equal or greater teams and beat those we should. This year's schedule is harder than last, so 7-5 isn't unthinkable. I'll take a 7-5, with some close battles that shows growth. Anything better is bonus. More blowouts and losses to teams we should beat start the drums... Go Olsen! Posted by: beedharphong | April 05, 2014 at 07:47 PM The quote above was succinct, but not comprehensive. Shannon had the best class one year and Golden had looming death penalty for 2+. Also you need to mention the trends. One going down badly and the other going up. Same record but vastly different programs and expectations moving forward after year 3. No comparison.
