So let me get this straight... What Ur telling me is ... "wait til next year" ?

Come on Cane Tard. The over/under using that battle cry is around 5 and Ur over quota by a few years.

Be original and at least try to come up with something a little more fresh will ya ?

Since you’ve proven you are indeed the State Chump and botched any sense of a coherent argument with your abuse of comparative analysis, let’s stay in ‘redneck vernacular’ for your benefit.

Rednecks 17 - Boomer Sooner 45

You’re the champ of nothing, but the chump of loads.

PS - nice job in the ACC title game…choke artists


Rednecks 17 - Boomer Sooner 45

Jeez, there U third world immigrants go again in typical Cane tard fashion. FSU Rips Urs and my Team huge new ones and all U can do is bring up what other teams did to HalfAzzU that U couldn’t do for Urself. U Canes have to rely on other teams more than Ur own. Ur waaaayyyy beyond pathetic to use that comparative analytical narrative even in Ur best redneck vernacular.

Here’s one that I’ll fire at Nole fan in my best Clueless Canefan vernacular … “Uhhhhhhhh, Oye Crimmynoles, S. Floreeda beet ju last jear ang wee beet dem dis jear ang dey beet dee jU dis year… ju SUCK like dee jU ang we Goood. Go Gatah !!!

Does anyone know why I cant view the whole press conference? At 4:33 in , right after kirby thanks Golden's wife, the video just stops.

The ACC title game… Miami Hurricanes.

Two subject matters that have NEVER been Uttered in the same sentence during the entire history of mankind …

It's just a precursor as to when this long reaching experimental bad marraige will go horribly wrong ... Duh U and Golden, enjoy the honeymoon. It'll be downhill after Tally.

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

Posted by: Dk in sd | December 13, 2010 at 08:28 PM

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

Posted by: Soldo | December 13, 2010 at 08:49 PM


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.

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

Since Sean the d-bag gaturd troll likes to put up lists of rankings, here's one for you to s**k on.
Media market rankings and CFB.

Miami/Ft.Laud #16


.............still looking..........?


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/

SEC…Big-12…BCS ‘Ship Rings > No Rings

silly gaturd troll. Your boy Muschump is in over his head. Dont worry though, your Golden shower is coming in 2013 unless bucktooth foley gets his wish and removes us from the schedule again.

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

Then go get Urban ... He's about as mentally stable as U Clueless Cane Clods.


Jeeesus Cane Clucks. Now Ur going to try to convince me about Ur new 2 year n out Golden Boy by using Meyer as an example? U've truly lost it.

Ur far worse of than I ever thought.

wow u really got me there

douchebag gaturd troll, those facts come from Steve Gorten (UF grad) cane beat writer for the SunSentinel.

What is Barack Muschumps winning percentage???????????????????

.....oh thats right......

wow u really got me there

Posted by: ur out of ammo | December 13, 2010 at 11:24 PM


well you can always repost your city rankings for intelligence.......made as much sense.

Give it up dude that gaytor p*ssy wont change

Muuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ...

You hurricanes fans should take solace in the fact that this gators guy is obviously a HUGE loser who sits on his laptop all day long initiating arguments with strangers because he has no real friends to interact with.

And you should also be ashamed that you're dumb enough to keep responding to him and giving him the illusion of human interaction that he so desperately seeks.

If you don't like what he's saying, then don't reward him by acknowledging that you're interacting with him. Eventually maybe he'll go find another blog to check every single waking day of his life.

And if you'd care to feel really bad about this coaching hire - go check out the Sedano blog, the interview with Jason Whitlock.

Scary stuff.


Manny and Susan,
This time of year this forum would do better with elves instead of trolls.
MOGd, this bunch has the collective IQ of a Guava.
Other than Pete.


Well, well, well ... How do Cane fans. Just here to give U a little non profanity inside education as to what exactley is going on with U and Ur U. Congrats on Al Golden. Fine man good Coach, better family man with a lovely wife plus a 5, 3 and 1 year old kids. It's just too bad for U that that 3 yr. old will never see the inside of a Coral Gables classroom. If U really think that Coach Golden is not using this job, that no one else wanted, as a stepping stone to be the "off Campus" "Coach in waiting" after Paterno leaves, then Ur sadly mistaken. That's ok U say, because with all that talent that is there and will be coming in, all U have to do is hire the next up n coming Head Coach right? Newsflash... U have only 15 schollies to pass out this transitional year, with only 4 wavering commits slipping through Ur fingers as U read. 15 huh? Now that's hardly a class wouldn't U agree? Combine that with the beyond average talent class that U signed last year (1 true freshman started for U this year and maybe 3 others saw the field in crunch time), and that's an entire upper class that will not pay dividends at all. U say, U have upwards of 30 schollies to pass out in 2011 ? Well, may silly, delusional Cane friends, that's where U would be soooo mistaken.

After yet another 8-4 mediocre non ACC 'Ship year next season, all U will be is a floundering team with a Coach that is one year closer to getting that call from Happy Valley informing him that Coach Pa is calling it quits after 2011. It will be the Lamest of Lame Duck scenarios that a Football team can imagine. Kind of like FSU and Bowden, accept PSU's "Jimbo" will be planning his depature down in The City Beautiful. Still no problem huh Cane Fan? Well here comes Ur absolute KILL SHOT to the once proud 20th. Century Football Program that was known as "The U". Those 30 or so schollies Ur so excited about filling with Top S. Florida Talent? Useless. Fisher and Muschamp are entrenched at their respective Programs through 2018 at the very least. They will, as every other team's program will as well, use that against U and blow the doors off Ur talent pool further and lower than any of U could ever imagine. And there won't be a thing U can do about it except complain and make up new excuses. It will happen and with a 3rd. straight poor recruiting class, it'll be right back to the Coker years and Coker excuses. But, by all means ... Deny, deny, deny.

So don't say that U weren't warned, but rather informed as to where U were just 3 short weks ago, where Ur lil happy place it at for now and finally 2 years from now when the final curtain comes down and U truly will be the Harvard of the South that Donna so badly wants for HER repUtation.

Ahhhh, "Comedy n Tragedy", but hardly funny for U... But it will be dramatic I assure U. Kind of like the slllloooowwwww demolition of Ur Beloved O.B. ... And no, I don't mean the Virginia game, but actually when they took the big swings at it with the wrecking ball...

So, talk amongst Urselves, discuss and be honest and nice to each other as to what the real truth and future is...

U do enjoy what time U have left Cane Fan ... Have fun.

*** do read on if U'd like to learn somethings that are FACTUAL taht U Canes have gotten ALL wrong as to the real hiring process of a Top-Flight College Football Program and be more educated than U were before as a result.***


On paper UM made the better hire, but you're loving UF's coach because Shalala didn't hire him. What does that tell you?

Posted by: I am Kazaam | December 13, 2010 at 01:38 PM


Now listen closely ... It tells me and anyone that has half a clue would know that had Donna and Kirby called and offered Muschamp 25 mil over 5 years gaurenteed over and over again, he would have turned U down over n over again (like Peterson, Patterson, Mullen, Gruden, Edsall, Pelini and others ALL said thanks, but no thanks to that downward demotion). U don't leave the keys in waiting of Texas, the best job College Football has to offer, to take over a non facilities, no stadium, non-elite, no fan base, non top 30 Average Program. U do however bolt, as the ONLY pursued candidate for the keys to the entire program, when the 2nd. best job in College Football offers U the kingdom. And That's Florida, whether U want to admit it or not...Read n learn something.

"Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds has no regrets. He believes the Longhorns benefited from making Muschamp the designated successor to Mack Brown."

"He had opportunities to leave and should have had them and still wanted to be at Texas," Dodds said Monday. "Florida is one of those schools you don't turn down. I understand that. I think everybody knows that. But it kept him here three years."

Ivan Maisel

"I think everybody knows that."

***True, Everyone accept U***


"At the age of 39 -- and without having worked one day as a head coach in college football -- Muschamp walked away from what many consider to be the best job in the country and accepted a job that might be considered 1-A."

"Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley targeted Muschamp as soon as Meyer announced his retirement. The Gators will pay Muschamp more than $2.5 million per season, according to sources close to the situation, and it's somewhat of a gamble by the Gators."

"Established head coaches would have lined up out the door to interview for Florida's vacancy. Meyer led the Gators to two BCS national championships in 2006 and 2008 and annually signed one of the country's top five recruiting classes. It's a job almost any coach in the country would have wanted."

"But Muschamp was the only coach Florida met with, and Foley offered him the job over the weekend."

Mark Schlabach

***ONE CANDIDATE , One Offer ... 2.5 Days n Done***


"Muschamp wasn't going to wait forever for Mack -- he was too hot a name for that. But Texas did what it could to enhance his patience by making him the highest-paid assistant coach in college football."

"Nobody saw him going to Florida, certainly not as rapidly as it went down. Texas sources say the Saturday announcement was a shocker that caught a lot of people off guard."

Pat Forde

***Sound like a team that was about to fire him?***


"Will Muschamp has passed on his share of head coaching opportunities."

"He was already next in line at one of the Taj Mahals of head coaching jobs. But on Saturday, he landed perhaps the Taj Mahal when Florida named him as its next head coach."

"Muschamp, Texas' defensive coordinator and the Longhorns' coach-in-waiting, was one of the hottest commodities among assistant coaches these past couple of years and was already making nearly $1 million per year. He said no thanks to Tennessee a year ago amongst other offers previously."

Chris Low


That's 4 Top ESPN Writers that know the FACTS. I'd attach some of the "nice guy", "Good job at Temple", "MAC Competition" "Can he win @ Miami without facilities" "How long before Penn St. uproots him" Coach Golden fluff stories, but U already know them.

Bottom line, The Gators got their # 1 Long term Target and U got Ur # 8 Short term revolving door Target. And had he turned U down? Then who ? U've no earthly idea do U ?

And we'll be seeing U again when Joe Pa calls it a career in a few years... Maybe U can get all charged Up again over Gruden and all the other Top Head Coaching Talent that wants nothing to do with Ur Mediocre U.


Some more fodder from Ur ESPN Gameday boys ?
btw- just when was the last time U were a host team for Gameday? Bet U have no idea right? Yup, now that's relevance.

Fowler and Herbstreit know, why don't U ?

"There are some challenges that are very obvious that you have to deal with that are a little different from some of your other elite jobs," Herbstreit said, noting UM's facilities compared to those of top programs, as well as the distance from campus to Sun Life Stadium and poor home attendance.

"I'm not saying that's a deal-breaker," Herbstreit said of the latter two, "but if I'm a coach that's definitely a concern."

Fowler said the situation won't be easy for whoever steps in as Shannon's successor.

"Finding someone who can maintain what he was able to achieve with his team off the field and win more games and win championships and do it with a flashy offense that's going to capture attention is very, very difficult," Fowler said. "And that's perhaps why there aren't people lining up for it. Coaches are very aware of that set of challenges."


And Finally, Listen to me, I'll make it plan and simple so even U hardest of the hard headed Cluless Cane Fans can understand ...

Longtime former UM assistant coach Don Soldinger, who would like to see UM hire Mike Leach, believes "it's going to be hard to attract" many coaches who aren't familiar with the dynamic in Miami.

"It's very different than any other college atmosphere," Soldinger said. "It's not like Florida. It's not like a Florida State. It's not like Clemson. Mississippi State, which is in the middle of nowhere, has better facilities, better crowds than Miami."

To stress his point, Soldinger added of Mullen, "Why isn't he interested in Miami?"

Why ? It's ALL stated above, from the beginning to end, if U have the comprehension and ability to digest it all ...

That's Why ... Now Goodbye U 20th. Century has beens.

Y do use even respond to the Gators? This is a great hire period, Florida has a good hire (but obviously a downgrade)and Jimbo is good too. The one team who downgraded is Florida to be honest trying to replace Urban is going to be hard there fans will get restless fast if Mus loses.

Why do you so called gators and semi holes even post on a blog for the Canes? Nobody cares what you say, so why bother, just go back to your mud hole or wigwam and attempt to write something that makes sense, that is if you even have the education to put together two words that are comprehendible.

I was impressed with Coach Golden's press conference. It's going to be a great run with this guy. I hope his first order of business, after recruiting, is to go back to afternoon practices in the South Florida heat.


That guy literally has noooooooooooooo life. Look how much time he put in to that post.

Frankly Sean Wilson aka gator d-bag troll extraordinaire, your posts are meaningless to Cane fans. We know how you operate, steal names, post anonymously etc...

Dig up all you want to make the hire look bad while avoiding the fact that Barack Muschump sucked at UT. They had a wonderful season, should translate well to UF.

You really need another hobby

Still trying to figure out how Randy was fired for a coach with a losing overall record.
This is suppose to bring us back to National relavence? Okay......

Sean, Curse Piggy, your boyfriend called. He needs you.

I hope you get cancer for Christmas, Pig.

One last thing gaturd douche, in response to your claims of why not,



funny that CBS also covers the amazing SEC

Muscrap = The Zooker.

This is going to be fun. Muscrap better perfect the distressed "hand through the hair move" a la Zooker.

Think Saban is worried? Naaaaaaah. Derek Dooley just penciled in a win in September.

You Gatard trash be so stupid.

Al Golden promises a national championship at UM - but he never won a Mid-American Conference championship at Temple. I feel good about this one.

Very very amusing that fans of other schools, Gators, Noles, even a hick from the Sooner nation on these blogs running their mouths, LMAO. Since the U is nothing anymore, and insignificant, WHY do you bums CONSTANTLY come on our blogs and talk dirt about us?

Posted by: Sean Wilson aka gator troll d-bag extraordinaire

That NFL list is from 2007. UF and Texas have equal or if not more now.

He has the right attitude.

He is the coach of "our" Canes now.
The relationship this city has to this team is only comparable to a few other major cities.

Not the Ann Arbors and College Towns... But major cities that are in love with a local college team. It is rare. We love the U but we are classic warm beach front fans... Win or we are going to go sit in the Sun... That is just the way it is in the US.
LA, Miami, Tampa, maybe San Diego is the only exception.

We are with ya coach. Hope you stay and don't bolt to Penn State in 2 years. Schiano can have hat job or maybe the Auburn OC will do it. Hope you succeed and like your mentor Joe Pa say this is home and you try and break 400 wins here with us.

Anyway, Go Canes!!!

I didn't think Muschamp had a winning percentage. He has never been a Head Coach.
How long do you think he would have been the HC in waiting? UT just got finished completing their worst season in decades with him running the defense. Ha Ha Ha
The trolls should be scared.....very scared.

Randy Shannon > Zooker > Muscrap.

Uh, oh, Gatard trash. Ever get that sinking feeling that doom is upon you? That the future is as bleak as your trailertrash present?

Welcome Coach Golden!
You will be a huge winner!

Posted by: Sean Wilson: Trailer trash walking

Canes fans are really really dumb. Evidenced by Giancarlo's post on JOrge Sedano's facebook

Giancarlo de la Noval:
Randy Shannon was named head coach to clean up the program NOT to take us to the promise land, no one expected him to be the UM's savior


You are correct gaturd douche, we are tied with USC at the top with 55.

Ironic that UM is tied with another school that doesn't have the flashy facilities. I think USC has worse facilities.

So much for the facilities argument.

What happens with Al Golden or Muschamp wlll only be known in the next 1-2 yrs...

So take a freaking break from all the trash talking, Canes or Gators...

The only school that can talk a little trash right now is FSU, who are more stable, will be more developed, and has a proven coach. They get to dominate in 2011 in the State of FL.

But after a development year, it'll be fun to see what happens.


Wow, Feral Douche. Have some free time? Trolling Sedano's Facebook page to then come on this blog and post about it?

Seems like someone needs a job. I hope they shut off those unemployment benefits so trash like you can go back to picking up trash on the street for minimum wage, you greasy rag-picker.

I guess with a UFelony degree you can't really get a job so if I offended you I am sorry.

"Feral Cat", "Charlie Pell", "Sean Wilson aka"

You guys are ridiculous and you need to stop.

All this gators fan wants is someone to talk to and you're giving that to him. Stop responding and eventually he'll go away. You are just as guilty as him for making this blog unreadable.

Allow him to say terrible things about UM. Let him talk about how great UF is. None of that matters and none of you guys are going to ever convince him or anyone else that he's wrong.

All he really wants is human interaction, if you stop giving him that he will eventually go find another blog, or maybe a real life friend.

Al Golden reminds of Dudley Dawson, aka Booger from Revenge of the Nerds.

Posted by: Pete | December 14, 2010 at 11:45 AM


He's been on here for three years including the other Cane blogs. He wont go away and spends more time on Cane blogs than a lot of Cane fans, has no life and needs to get laid.

OK but why does he do it?

Because you guys consistently respond to him and give him an excuse to spend another hour of his life looking up stats and arguing.

If you just allow him to trash talk UM and talk up UF without ever acknowledging him, it won't be fun for him anymore and eventually, (a month? a year?) he will either find another blog to check every second of the day or will finally man up and just kill himself.

where did we get the name Sean Wilson from? Do we know for sure that that is it's name?
