« Golden assured no scholarship reduction for 2012 recruiting class; Miller won't go pro unless he's a 1st rounder | Main | Gameday blog: Boston College at UM »

Golden to Penn State reporter: "I believe I'm going to be the head coach at Miami in 2012, that's correct."

CORAL GABLES -- For months, UM coach Al Golden has told us how much he and his family love living in Miami. He's told us how much he relishes the opportunity to coach the Hurricanes and how he plans to be here for the future.

Tuesday, during his weekly appearance on the Atlantic Coast Conference teleconference -- about 10 minutes before he met with local reporters at UM -- Golden was asked directly by a Penn State reporter if he had any interest in taking the vacant Nittany Lions job.

The question: "Do you have absolutely no interest in the Penn State job?"

Golden's response: "The question has been posed the last couple of weeks, and I said over and over again, I'm happy here. I'm excited about what we're doing with our program.  I'm excited about the recruiting class that we're putting together, and clearly excited about what our team has done."

Patriot-News reporter David Jones then asked Golden: "So does that mean you absolutely will be the coach at Miami in 2012?'

Golden responded: "I believe I'm going to be the head coach at Miami in 2012, that's correct."

Golden has been asked ad nauseam by local reporters about his future in light of the impending NCAA sanctions at Miami and the opening at Penn State. What can you take from Tuesday's quote on the ACC teleconference? Exactly what he said. Golden "believes" he will be here in 2012.

That being said -- you never know. If you need any reminders, just ask the Dolphins about Nick Saban and that job at Alabama he wasn't going to take. I'm not saying Golden is a liar. I'm just saying other coaches have lied before.

Here is the audio of the exchange between Penn State reporter and Golden. I edited it down for your listening ears and added the following question from a different reporter when Golden went on to talk about why you would take a job at Miami.

Al Golden on Tuesday's ACC teleconference

OTHER NEWS AND NOTES FROM TUESDAY

Here are few other highlights from Tuesday's weekly press conference with Golden and UM players.

> UM hasn't won its final regular season game since 2006. Golden said it's important for UM to go out on a high note Friday and win.

"I know Boston College feels the same way," he said. "They have 10 freshmen on their two deep on defense so they're looking at it as a springboard for them. They've given up two touchdowns in their last two games. They're playing good football right now. They have our staffs' attention, players attention.

"It is an important game for us, to go 7-5, know we had a chance to win every game. That's a big deal because that wasn't the case the last couple years. When they lost the last couple times it kind of unraveled and got away from them. This team didn't let that happen. This team never quit."

> Friday's game was rescheduled from Saturday to Friday before the season in honor of the famous Hail Flutie Game in 1984. Golden remembers the game vividly.

"I remember it like it was yesterday. I know exactly where I was. 1984. The day after Thanksgiving, our kids wouldn't understand it now, but it was one of those deals where my brother Greg was home from college and said `Let's VCR this game,' Let's tape this game.' I think he still has it, to be honest with you. We knew it would be one of those games. The more the game evolved it was `I can't believe what I'm watching.' Melvin [Bratton's] touchdown at the end or Bernie [Kosar] yelling at coach to run it in. I have a vivid picture in my mind of what it looked like. There have been a lot of great clashes. I was also on the other side in the 1999 game, 31-28, overtime. And the 2001 game. They beat us the last time we played. Our guys understand they're in for a physical, rugged team that doesn't beat itself. We have to be ready."

He'll stay. Just drop this already and lets all focus on next season. Pedophile State University won't have much money to offer him once they're done paying their legal fees and paying off the lawsuits. That school is gonna go broke soon. Facts are facts.

Amazing how a peeon that claims to make "millions" a year in his fantasy world can know so little about money.

Seriously, when U say idiotic stuff like U did and continue to do like the above, do U realize just how remotely stUpid it makes U seem and obviously are ?

A fool and his money/ Open moUf removes All doubt ...

That and ...

GO CANES !!!

We GOT This !!!

ACC Champs this year, BCS Champs next year !!!

10-2 or maybe 11-1 !!!

FIRE Shalalala and Extend Al @ 4-5 mil. a year !!!

Gotz Some CANES Ova Here !!!

Monster Beasts recruiting class !!!

Miller the best Back in the Country !!!

Jacory Heisman !!!

Enjoy sucking on penis.

dUUUh dUUUh dUUUh ...

suicyco-aka suc-ks gatr boys along I-75 near Ocala:

We never threaten you sallies that Urban the liar was going to penn state, in fact, we could care less. Fact is, you have Mu-chump and fatty bigbuckle walking the sidelines at the-------- sw(d)u(a)mp.

Please. Threaten? You gators are such soft little kitties.
Listen. My advice is forget about UF football. You have three of the most highly touted QBs coming out of hs in the last 5 yrs and imagine that- You still s-k.
Stick to wearing Tebow jerseys on Sundays and kneeling down after every running TD he has.

That's the same guy who's outraged that Donna Shalala didn't personally investigate and expose a Ponzi schemer who had been deceiving hundreds of investors for years - all for a $50,000 check that represents 0.00003125% of the donations she's collected over the past five years.

My bad. It wasn't Penn State you Cane chumps threatened us with. It was Notre Dame Urban was supposed to be running to - his supposed "dream job." Time for Golden to flee that dump in Coral Gables and go to HIS dream job at Penn State.

Don't worry though. Randy will gladly take his "dream job" back at Ghetto U.

@ Chris H...

I do see your point and it's well said. But, IMO, it's gonna take a few more years past 2013 for this to blow over. I don't see too many players (who depend on mom&dad's opinions) committing to a school that covers up a subject like this. I, who hates penn st., "had" the up most respect for JoePa and even when the story first broke out, I didn't believe in my wildest dreams that he knew anything about it. I couldn't understand how someone with such a great career record as his would or could be part of this in "any" way what so ever. Boy was I wrong when I realized that I had to face facts that a head coach must have known at some point and either take care of it or ignore it. In this case he ignored it. I think that if the death penalty can be thrown at us for what happened down here which also happens everywhere else as well, then it can be thrown on the table in regards to this. This was a matter that was never controlled correctly. The correct way to control it was to get to the bottom of it immediately and fire whoever immediately. That never happened apparently until it was too late. The recruiting there will take a nasty dive for some time to come and god only knows when that will change. Plus with this scandal, the boosters that you mentioned earlier may be a little reluctant to give anymore funds until things are rectified. God holds the fate of psu.

If things continue to climb for Golden while he's here at The U, I don't see him leaving. Miami will throw bags of money at him and he'll be set for life in a vacation spot and won't have to worry about shoveling snow anytime soon.

God Bless America and God Bless The U.

Ahhh more trollers trolling around looking to start, by all means attempt at will. You're obviously someone who's been on this site before posing with another handle to cover up the fact that you're insignificant. Enjoy your life troll. Try not to waste it. I didn't and I made millions. What have you done lately with your GED?


Another person who can't stand a fan simply being passionate about his favorite team. Funny how their team isn't even being spoken of.


GO CANES ALL DAY EVERYDAY!!!!

Ahh you again Eucalyptus! Still in your bathrobe surrounded by cheeto crumbs. You're also the one if I remember correctly that said that shalalalala's job was to stand there like an idiot and accept money from who ever it comes from? Ya, you're words are true words of wisdom. You want to only talk about that 1 check for $50k while there was also the $150k given to build a lounge with his midget face on it? How about not realizing that Head Coach randy shannon was trying to keep this guy away from his players while she obviously didn't have a problem allowing him to run wild on the sidelines and screaming threats at athletic department administrators. She knew these things were going on and did nothing. What kind of a director would allow a booster to make verbal threats at the top of his lungs in public at a fellow employee. I'll tell you, the kind of garbage that you like to defend so passionately.

Where are your internet based physical threats? This will be your last chance to show that you have some balls in that little sack of yours to show yourself at the game and face me. Lets see if you really are man enough to tell me to my face what you wanted to do to me you POS. You know where I'll be, I've only invited you so many times. If you have enough memory to remember that one discussion about a $50k check then you can remember where my seats are at. See you there
COWARD!


I'M A CANE 4 LIFE AND IF ANY DOUCHE TROLLER HAS A PROBLEM WITH THAT, FIND ME AT THE STADIUM AND WE'LL HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT IT.

OH YA, FIRE THE DAMN HOBBIT, THEY BELONG IN MOVIES NOT REAL LIFE.


GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I doubt Golden is going anywhere next season, especially Penn St. He might think about it more seriously after whoever replaces Paterno doesn't do so well, and Golden has had some success at Miami. Then Golden could replace the guy who replaced Paterno.

If Golden is anything like Johnson or Davis, he'll be here for about five years and then move on.

Canetillidie,
Keep that fire going, man.
Send it onto the field for the Canes
against BC. I hope they play all out
on every down!
Let's show up and cheer these guys on!
Go Canes!

I'll take 5 yrs with Golden any day. By then we'll be a powerhouse again. Then if that time comes, lets look at Mario Cristobal and Butch Davis again.

Canetillidie,
Keep that fire going, man.
Send it onto the field for the Canes

Ahh spoken like a true cane.

Go U!

Haha, my mistake - Shapiro's donations were worth 0.000125% of the donations Shalala's collected, totally worth an expensive and intensive investigation to expose him and every other donor.

You're a great football fan but you don't have even the most basic understanding of how universities work and what's important to them. So just stick to the football.

I know you're big into the whole "troller/troll" thing and I know you read the back and forth I had with "myself" and why I signed up for a name so no one else could impersonate me.

I'm the furthest thing from someone who would feel good about acting like a tough guy on the internet and childishly challenging someone to a fight. You might think about leaving that alone yourself, it's not a good look.

Penn State was paying Joe Paterno $545,000 per year. If Golden were to go there he would have to have $3,000,000 minimum. Considering that Suburban Meyer is about to get nearly $7,000,000 from OSU I just do not think the cheap folks at penn State can afford Golden especially considering the large lawsuits that are looming. I think Golden decides to stick it out and win a championship or two before moving on. Sanctions will not be much. Maybe a post season ban on next year, and that is a big maybe.

Showing your true colors as someone who jumps from one handle to another. Talking garbage with one and trying to defend yourself with another. You're such a joke. I never challenged anyone to a fight. I said come over and we'll discuss it. But since you're a big man in your bathrobe in your parents' house and can type out physical threats to another person on this blog, I was curious to see if you were man enough to put on your big boy pants and step to my face to say and do the same thing. You are the one and only person who defends shalalalala as if she is either a relative or your girlfriend. Who knows, maybe you have a thing for hobbits...

You can say that other people are using your handle, you can change the color of your handle all you want. You're still a lifeless troller living with your parents surrounded by cheeto crumbs. Enjoy your pathetic life of defending someone who will not have the chance to retire but be fired.

GO CANES!!!!! RAH RAH TROLLING B%^$HES!!!

That means he's leaving...

@ JACKAZZZ/EUDOCIMOS/EUCALYPTUS/COACH P/ TROLLING DOUCHE WHO LIKES HOBBIT CROACH


What's better?

1. Being a fool with money

2. A broke genius trolling through blogs

Answer that.


GO CANES!!!

Fire SHALALALALALA now

Fire the hobbit.

Eucolyptus has presented us with another absolutely stupid statement. The amount of the check she got from Shapiro is not the whole story, it could have been more or less. The point is the president of the U stood there like a grinning fool accepting a large check from someone who had not cleared it in advance, warning will Robinson in there, but went ahead and cashed the check and never vetted the source. Just a elementary check would have brought up danger signs.
Another question: how long did it take to return that money and the other money.
What has Shalalalalalala done to be accountable in this whole situation?? Nothing is the word. Leading from behind, familiar anyone??

Yea, my point was that the opposite of everything you just said is true.

A simple vetting would not have exposed a massive ponzi scheme that had fooled the hundreds of people who invested in it. The amount of effort it would have taken to discover that S******'s entire business was a ponzi scheme would have been massive and if the university did that for every donation it wouldn't have the time or resources to do anything else.

Canetilludie - going to generic mothers basement cheetos Internet nerd insults? Also not a good look considering you post twice as much content with twice as much frequency as whoever spends the second most amount of time here.

I took the time signing up for this name so no one could pretend to be me anymore and I've been signed in since I got it.

Little Internet games aren't my thing.

Eucuptus. What planet are you on. Nothing in my post was untrue, period the end. Shapiro was going down long before it came official and folks that paid attention, did their home work, or vetted him got out. Bobble head shalalala could have if she had cared find out about Shapiro. So if someone you do not know and have no knowledge of the person would accept and cash a 50k check and ask no questions?? If your answer is yes, you are dumber than your posts.
Notice you avoided the real questions. It's plain why you did.
Comon man, get with it for once.

Why ask the question if it doesnt matter what he says???.

We'll know in 6 or 7 weeks.

Whatever sactions the U may encur from a convited felon should pale in comparison to covering up for child preditor...I mean seriously maybe our kids took a few bucks....but if it is all true...this guy was raping children and Penn State did nothing about it....If anyone deserves sanctions it is them....that school needs to seriously re-evaluate what is important. Just my view from the mountains south of Kabul....in sunny Afghanistan....

Once again you're somehow disagreeing with me on something that is not at all subjective.

S******'s ponzi scheme was exposed in late 2009 when he was sued by one of his investors.

That $50,000 check was donated in 2008.

Prior to S***** being sued in 2009, none of his investors had filed claims and nobody was investigating him for fraud.

So no, while just meeting the man would have been enough to expose him as a scumbag, there is NO way UM could have discovered that his entire business was a massive ponzi scheme.

You are all acting like his $50,000 donation was some massive thing - I'm not just making up those numbers, that check represents 0.00003125% of the donations Shalala collected over 5 years.

Should UM have demanded to see all of the Frost's personal business documents before they accepted the millions of dollars they donated?

UM fans love to complain about our facilities - should UM have turned down the 5 million that that guy Schwartz donated for the new locker room and athletic center? You think for a second he would have turned over documentation of all his business dealings to prove he was legitimate?

There are unscrupulous donors around every college program, if you think that S***** is a unique case you just don't understand how dirty and pervasive college football is.

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL CANES, NOLES and GATORS alike ... Atleast we are all, ALL-AMERICANS ...

excUse me, I just threw up in my moUth .

.

oh yeah, F-DALLAS !

why is penn state such a dream job in ice cold frigid weather? he won 2 nat titles in 50 plus yrs, 1, because Vinny in 86 thru 5 picks,was given to him by Miami. Take the bad game away, and jopa has 1 nat title,. Erickson has 2 titles, same as joepa. Miami had outgained pennst like 500 yds to 160, 35 1st downs to 10, and just waSnt meant to be. anyway, the point is, 2 titles in all those years, and not be cause of dominance. 1 was vs a bad georgia team with herschel walker carrying them to the title game, and the other Miami spanked pennst but had 5 picks and 8 to's and still only lost 14-10 and almost won on last throw of the game. Heck. saban has 2 already, same as Joepa. to me, he actually cost them titles ovr the years because he was so old, more top kids probably knew it was the assistants doin the coachin anyway.......fact

If he leaves, Mike Leach is still available. Something to ponder

The person or persons trying to peddle the idea on this blog that Penn State is of a mind to pay Al Golden or any other coach a large salary at this time is...well... clueless!

First of all, Penn State might very well voluntarily suspend their football program for the next year or two. Secondly, the very last thing Penn State wants to do is send the message that football still remains as the number one priority of the university by paying any coach a large salary. Seriously, the thought of that based on what has recently come to light at PSU and is only getting worse is truly laughable.

I agree that Al Golden is a spectacular coach and certainly he would be a huge upgrade over all the coaches at Florida schools and many, many other division 1 schools. But, trying to worry Miami fans with the big pay day by Penn State is a fool’s errand.

Eucolptus. You really are otl. Word was out on Shapiro well before 2008 and I know of people that were advising against his firm starting late 06 early 07.
If anyone had asked any questions about him in 08 it would have been lots of problems. His conduct at the stadium should have been enough for shalalalala.
Now shalalalalala butt kisser, when was his money returned?? When has shalalalala publiclically denounced Shapiro??
This is too easy after eating way too much.

anyone have insider on espn.com? big article on the canes? can someone post it. its on college football/recruiting?

Damn your a douche. Literally everything you say is something that a douche would come up with. Like I've said before, I play around on this blog while in my office running my business. So I have all the time I want to type as much as I like. Now, you are a retard if you think it takes much resources to perform a simple background check of anyone that makes a donation to the university. You can hire 1 person to do that. Literally "1" person. I own a property management business and I have one of my supervisors do it. I do it on potential tenants that come in after they fill out my application. It takes an hour to get a result, that's it. So since you don't have basic information like that, it makes it safe to assume that you do not possess basic knowledge or even much if any of a college education. You talk as if you are truly educated but everyone on this simple blog can see that you hide yourself with different handles, some with color and some without, and defend the one person that deserves no defense in the first place but even after all of this could have been prevented, you still defend her left and right. You're simply full of crap, living with your parents(roommates to your multiple personalities), spending your days in your bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, surrounded by cheeto crumbs. It wouldn't amaze me if you were collecting government checks for some made up disorder for why you can't come up with a job to move out of your parent's house. You are truly pathetic, your attempts to protect the guilty are pathetic and futile. You might as well jump on the psu student bandwagon and protect a man who allowed a pedophile run around. He knew what was going on and did nothing. Shalalalalala knew what was going on and did nothing. One, a more heinous than the other. The point is, people in the position do to something did nothing. Both obligated, both turning the other cheek.

This will be the last time I respond to a single thing you say to me. You physically threatened me awhile back and weren't man enough to face me. This will be your last chance until next season. If for anything simply to prove to yourself as a man, if you are one, that if your "man enough" to say something like that on a computer then you should be man enough to say it to my face.

Until you can face me, don't even bother typing to me because you will simply be ignored. You are not a Cane Fan, you're a piece of garbage who likes to simply start argues.

November 25th.

Meanwhile, I hope the Canes stomp the Eagles.
Show up and cheer, no matter what you think of Shalala-Shapiro! Use that anger to help motivate the Canes!
Go Miami!

Meanwhile, I hope the Canes ...

"Damn your a douche. Literally everything you say is something that a douche would come up with. Like ... " U ? dick

wow, two dUche' references in one sentence ...


Literally, takes just one like U to know a douche ehhh ?

here is my take--Golden was ready to leave Temple. If UM was facing penalties when he was interviewed he would still have taken the job. He has improved his image at UM but at that time he was not that hot of a property. Thann back and then agree with me.

Hahaha, playin' around on the blog in your office at 11 at night?

K.

Excellent writeup (I think by Susan) the other day on Spence, Streeter, and Harris - worth a read for the legions of canes fans who hate on all those Northwestern boys.

Just another reminder that the players are UM football, regardless of whether or not they perform up to the standards of a bunch of awful fans who have nothing to do with the university.

Most canes fans are happy to see Harris go but personally I can't wait to watch his last game as a Miami Hurricane with the appreciation for what he's done for my university over the past 4 years.

The team played a shite sight better than it would have without him.

The real non fans are the ones that make excuses for not doing their job, al la shalalalala, and excusing the bad behavior of players like you do eucolptus.
Saying the players for the U are not the U is like saying soldiers are not the Army. You and people like you could use a little course on duty, honor, country.

Over/Under 20k ?

Watching louisville. Reminds me of Harris in his freshman year. Glad we ate not playing that record again.

Dear UM losers, please do not worry about losing your coach. There is NO WAY that PSU will hire anyone who had any association with PSU. It will be a hire that has zero connection to PSU. It sucks for Golden as I am sure he would take that job in a second, even with the issues, rather then stay at apathetic U of M.

Also, please explain to me how UM can be bowl eligible with 6 wins when one of those wins was against Bethume? How can that one count? Oh, well.... Hope the NCAA goes down hard on you guys anyway, once and for all.

Dear nycfiufane. We play with the big dogs unlike little ole fiu in division 2

"Just another reminder that the players are UM football, regardless of whether or not they perform up to the standards of a bunch of awful fans who have nothing to do with the university."


Try again.

Why would State Penn want Al Golden?

Because he's gone 6-6 at the U? Our 3rd bad season since 1979?

Because his 5 MAC wins at Temple in 2010 were vs. teams that combined to go 13-47?

This guy has never won anything and Miami is stuck with him until 2019!

Hilarious!
