Al sounds like he knows what he is talking about. If he sticks by what he said at the news conference the we will be competing as soon as next year.

We need an energetic coach like this. See him jumpin on the sidelines at the temple game---U look at shannon and it looks like we are losing 45-0 even when we r winnin. He wasnt a people person. He brought in the talent, BEST HIRE--I LIKE THE GUY------WAY TO GO KIRBY

I like this guy already...I love the passion and drive I saw...definitely wants to be here at da U

manny get clips so we can see like you interview kids after the game

That guy brought some swagger with him. I love his response to: Why Miami?

"Are you kidding me?"

Sounds like an aggresive recruiter too!

I feel coach Golden past the first test. As an alum I'm encouraged that he has the energy to succeed and plans to accomplish his goal without "swagger"(another word for rudeness) that was introduced by Johnson and carried om by Erickson. He reminds me of Butch Davis. The "U" is now in a different world as the #1 academic school in Florida and in the top 50 per US World & News Report. I wish him good luck and hope that South Florida will show their appreciation and fill the stadium.

These guys you mention are all over 60, and over the hill. No way.

1. Players will no longer feel entitled from the great teams that came before them.

2. Former players need to come back and show the players the right way to do things.


This guy sounded great - no more "the U is back", no more "swagger" - we're getting the genuine article.

He knew what to say and how to energize the base. That was an awesome press conference. Now let's see the recruiting results, the practice results, and some big wins next year.

Never occurred to me he wouldn't be able to hire a staff because the current staff stayed. That could be an issue with recruits who won't know their position coach. But if anyone can get by that this guy can, and anyway this isn't the most important class he's gonna land. It's only 15 kids strong. Plug a few holes, build some depth and move on to the big one next year.

I am psyched! Go Canes!

Great hire. Looking forward to disciplined football.

and you know it's true, Pig.

That was a great start Coach Golden...liked everything you said. It is only a matter of time until you fill some seats....win and they will come. Bringing back the old players is key, that helps The U big time.

Great first impression:

a strong coach
a strong recruiter
welcomes NFL playeras to come "home"
gets the UM tradition
has the right values for winners
prostyle and 4 - 3, but flexible
grateful to be at the U
has a strong presence
will impress recruits and families

Watch out ACC, BCS!

We are on our way, fellow Canes!

Pete, u lost the meaning of swagger somewhere

Let's see ...

The # 1 available Head Coaching Candidate from the # 2 Ranked Big-12 Conference - TEXAS----- SEC-Big-12-BCS Rings.

The # 1 available Head Coaching Candidate from the # 10 Ranked Mid Atlantic Conference - TEMPLE----- No Rings - No Conference wins verses above .500 MAC Teams.

I'm a State Champ Seminole fan and we kicked both your azzzes. Your combined 'Turd n Cane stupidity is astonishing. But I must say, with Jimbo finally in charge after waiting his chance, this has got to be the dumbest statement I have ever read on any blog ever ...

"Obviously, we have to see who he brings in as his staff but Hocutt blew Foley out of the water so far."

... And the really sad part about it is that you and other Canes like you, in that worn out has been Miami fan base believe that. Muschamp is to Jimbo as Golden is to Randy. Real coaches / Nice guys.

I'm far more worried about what Florida will bring immediately and beyond than I ever would with that lateral hire U Canes are all clamoring about. But you won't realize it until much later when it's again too late. Just like before.

Well, actually like 3 weeks ago . Short term memories you Canes have. History, you'll repeat it again because you don't learn. But by all means, start beating your chests and screaming that you're BACK... Well, actually you are, but only to 2006.

FSU State Champs:

Fasten your seatbelt, pal.

And I don't mean 2006...

by the way Pete, those teams coached by Johnson and Erickson were full of swagger!

I'm not sold on Golden. But I like the mentioning of Soldinger, Chow and leavitt.

Kehoe can go and kick rocks.

Really, I bet you watched the entire presser didn't you. Then you decided to come on here and pound your chest. You lost the ACC Championship. You need to win the ACC before you get to the NC. I think you been sitting on Chief Osceola's spear too long. Win the ACC first d-bag until then STFU and stay off here.

...you are welcome on gatorclause though. enjoy

i missed the show how can i replay it

2005 ACC CHAMPIONS ... You were saying something about STFU until U win your first Conference title ? That's a subject that you should be an expert at right ? Tell me all about it.

Ouch ! U Might wanna pull Chief Osceola's Spear out of that dUmb azzz of Urs Sean .

Just keep in mind that the only reason the gator and noel trolls are on here is because they are scared...and they should be. Go canes F U to the rest of y'all

For real, they know whats up with this guy running the show. Very impressive dude.

I hope that passion and enthusiasm translates to success on the field. So far the 1st impression has been solid now its time to put words into action, especially on the field against Notre Dame and on the recruiting trail to salvage the little recruiting class we have right now! Good Luck coach Golden and go CANES!!!

Great press conference. I like this guy.

Gators and Noles checking this out...lol.

Wow first of all why would you hop on to a Miami blog FSU State champ? I will admit Miami hasn't been a powerhouse for quite awhile!! But not until this season have you guys had anything to say? and by the way this was a down year for Florida so live in the glory of state champion this year!! 9-3 isn't that how Miami (9-4) did last season and didn't we beat you last year also? I am confused, and what was your record last year and didn't you guys have to give a legend a boot? so shut up and go enjoy this year!! Because its only a matter of time before Miami and UF start eating up recruits also!

FSU is the tallest midget in the state right now. A four loss season and you would think they just won their seventh straight national championships. You can tell it's been awhile since they've been on top of the state.

The fsu & gater ding dongs need to be reminded of the number of national titles the small, private and better rated U has won. Those idiots need a hobby.

It refreshing to have a coach who can answer questions about offensive philosophy.

Good point Greg. I agree.


.....sean wilson is still a douche though.

Worth a listen.

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sedano-says/2010/12/canes-jason-whitlock-not-sold-on-golden.html

Whitlocks take on Golden on Sedano this morning. Say what you want about Whitlock, but he played in the MAC and knows it far better than any of us.Not feeling good about this. Hope he's wrong on this.

Sean, you fruity Pig.

wow I like this guy... now lets begin to put the puzzle together... and win the ACC next year... this guy seems like he is a peoples person...

Hey ass noles and gaybirds get off our link

Don't know who the jerk is, FSU State Chumps 2010, but haven't you forgotten something? This is the first time in, when, you beat both UM and UF. I also think I remember hearing some rumblings last year, when your Jumbo was still the OC, that a lot of you so called Semiholes didn't think Jumbo would be the answer to your problems. It's really too bad UM and UF both had down years in the same year, but crap happens. I would realy like to hear from you this time next year and see if you still support the Semiholes.
On another note, I think we, as Huricanes, should show support for the new head coach. He is coming into a new culture, South Florida, and a totaly different type of football program. This is HURRICANE COUNTRY, we love our football, we love our University and we want to WIN. Hopefully he will bring in a great staff that will deveolpe our current and future players and we will get back on a winning track.
GO CANES!!!

Seems to be a good fit, i hope they give him enough $$$ to hire quality assistants though. Welcome coach Golden, we support you.

WIN games and WE WILL SHOW UP... miami love winners, not loosers...so give us what we want and we will give u want u want.....GO CANES

Canes247.... Please don't claim to be a Miami fan. That's embarrassing. True fans support there team no matter what. Win and I'll be a fan? Pathetic.

Just keep in mind that the only reason the gator and noel trolls are on here is because they are scared...and they should be. Go canes F U to the rest of y'all

.


Yeah, shaking in my boots here over that Temple Genius Golden and Ur in total disarray football program.

Golden is 1-16 verses teams with an over .500 record in his career and OOOOOOOOO-FER in the MAC. Do the math Cane clucks. he's 27-34 over all, which means he's only 26-18 verses teams that suck below .500. Yup, that's winning football in a Beyond Chitty Barely Mid- Major Conference.

Yup, I can see why Ur all charged up over this Foulball/Homerun/Longstrrrrike hire.

Silly Cane Fan, U have nothing else to hang Ur U cap on and once again are going waaayyyy overboard with false hope like U always do.

Oh and Goldie says no more Swag huh ? Lemme guess, U'll all be chirpn, "F-Swag, Just Win Goldie Style" !!!

That would be, win one, lose one, win one, lose one, lose 2 to above .500 teams, lose 1 to under .500 teams ...

Right back where U where ... Again.

Are the thugs coming back?

to the turd dredges of society:

Mus-chump's record his final year as DC at Texas: 5-7, no bowl.

That would have been like hiring randy Shannon to be your coach at Florida after the 2007 season. In fact, Shannon's record at DC blows Muschump away.

Good catch jeremy Foley catheter/

Enjoy that state title this year jerkoff cause it's coming home to south beach next year. We have a better coach than either the noles or gators now. Hope U enjoyed the last 7 years because it has now ended.

Good clip glad I saw , my outlook on the guy really has changed after watching him talk , lets hope he WALKS THE TALK !!

lets put it in perspective douchebag gaturd troll sean, look at how saint urban did in two years of the MAC.

Urban 17-6 at Bowling Green

Golden 17-8 with Temple (last two years)

Built the Temple program up. How did Barack Muschamp do building up the Texas D????????

Thats right, it's the return of the Zooker - Part Duex

In his attempts to look like a genius, bucktooth foley had a knee jerk reaction. Muschump is in over his head.

10 more arrests this offseason for the turds.

Maybe Urban can spot Muschump a few prozac just to get a head start.

Welcome coach and please use our strength, which is the RB's.
