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 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.

I need to see the Helmet a little better. I hope it's not that smoke nonsense. Keep that part the same.

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.

Posted by: Nash | April 03, 2014 at 07:59 PM Speed is something you come in with. You don't improve leaps and bounds because you are in a strong college program. You don't go from 4.6 to 4.4. You're either fast out the gate or you're not. Now weight is something that speaks to the player and program.

Trade Wallace and Wake with a 1st. To move up and pick the BPA. Sammy Watkins or Mathews.

### The person handling the stadium deal for David Beckham and MLS today confirmed my February report that MLS and Beckham are seriously exploring having a joint stadium for MLS and UM football. In fact, he said MLS and UM are in "active discussions." Please see The Herald's story on the MLS stadium on our web site at this hour. As I have written, MLS says it's still about 60 days from knowing whether a joint UM/MLS stadium is feasible. Even if MLS determines it's do-able, UM would need to somehow escape the final 18 years of its Sun Life Stadium lease for it to happen. UM has told MLS that it must have no fewer than 40,000 seats for UM to be interested in playing there. If the stadium is only for soccer, it likely would have a capacity of 20,000 to 25,000.

when football coaching fails, excel at all the ancillary things to try and distort the real reality! Posted by: Calvin | March 23, 2014 at 11:36 AM Golden doesn't consider himself a failure and neither do the administration, players, his family and many fans. He was sincere in his actions. You can critticise his coaching all you want but you can't draw question to his integrity. Never mind me, Ice and Soldy think he's a good man. The people many of those who don't support Golden hold in high regard. you go out of your way to disparage this guy. Same thing people used to do to Randy. Let's try to keep this professional.

Dade City (Fla.) Pasco High School TE Bowman Archibald had a specific thing in mind when he began touring schools in search of his college destination. "I didn't want to sacrifice a poor education for a better football team," Archibald said. So as he toured the University of Miami on Tuesday, met Donna Shalala and became more educated on the academic quality of The U which sometimes gets overshadowed by its football tradition, Archibald had a pretty good idea his recruitment was about to come to an end. Thursday, the 6-6, 240-pounder committed to the Hurricanes in a boisterous phone call with Coach Al Golden and tight ends coach Larry Scott. "I guess you just get a feeling when you get on the right campus," Archibald said. "I had a really great visit down there Tuesday and then a few sleepless nights. I have been talking to my family about what I want in the college experience and what I expect. Miami met everything on my list. It's a great academic school with a great football program. I can't wait to be a Cane." Archibald had 19 offers and also has visited Auburn, Florida and South Florida in recent weeks. He says he is now finished taking visits. "I am fully committed to Miami," Archibald said. "It has been a dream since I was young to play for the Canes. I have always been a Miami fan. I started playing tight end in seventh grade and it has been always been Tight End U to me. I'm very excited to try to continue that tradition." Archibald has been in daily contact for the past several days with Scott and the two are forging a strong relationship. "He knew I was very interested in Miami," Archibald said. "I wanted to knock this thing out and get the weight off my shoulder. It was the right time to go ahead and commit, get recruiting over with and focus on my last year of high school." Archibald was asked what kind of player Miami was getting by landing his commitment. "A disciplined, hard working guy," Archibald said. "A very humble guy. I won't be a guy they have to worry about. I will do anything that I am asked."
