Golden voices displeasure with agent, reiterates love for Miami

In case you were wondering, Al Golden still loves wearing orange and green.

A day after CBSSports.com reported that Golden’s agent, Brett Senior, said UM has made “overtures” to Golden about restructuring his contract amid the NCAA investigation that took him by surprise just months after he was hired, Golden took the time during Wednesday's weekly ACC coaches' teleconference to reaffirm his commitment to the program.

“I just want to make sure I’m clear to everybody that we love it here at Miami,” Golden said. “My wife, kids and I, and the staff, we love it here. We’ve got incredible support from the president and our AD, Shawn Eichorst, and we’re certain that support will continue in a number of ways moving forward."

Golden said that in his opening statement, then followed up later when he was asked if he had addressed the issue with his team.

"Again, for me, it was tough for me because when I was asked the question yesterday, I really didn't understand the context of it. I had no idea about the story, what was said, purportedly said, all that," Golden said.

"I had a chance to speak with my attorney and I expressed my displeasure. Again, I'm going to say it. I love it here. I know there were some questions yesterday. But my wife and kids are happy here. I think our staff is happy here. The president, this administration, Mr. Eichorst, have all been ultra-supportive. I'm certain, I'm positive, that that support will continue in a myriad of ways moving forward.

"Again, I don't think it's something I really have to address too long. I think since I've been here, I've been committed to turning Miami around and implementing a process and a structure and a culture that will endure.

"We're just out of the blocks. We're just out of the gates. I wish these types of things would go away in terms of we don't need any distractions. We're just trying to move forward with the program.

"I hope that answers your question."

You're wrong for putting that up here man. Just wrong. That name should be done away with like the "N" word. Useless post.

We are the Canes, with less funds, resources and facilities than the Gatr trash:

we own them head to head;
we have more NCs than they do;
in their best decade, we still beat them 3 out of 4;
more NFL players.

That should do it, Gatr maggot.

Plus that $ was returned and his midget face plate was removed from the wall. University of Miami doesn't need that dirty $. Thanks for nothing.


GO CANES

Nevin's picture donning a UM jersey on the field with the team in the OB, that is equated with UM football, that is and will be part of his legacy. The Herald loves that picture, it keeps showing up in different articles. Then there's the one at the bowling alley with silly grinning Donna and Frank Haith and a big old check.
Nevin and Dah U........priceless
Even Uncle Luke is jealous and tried to sue Shapiro. Live with it, this is your reality, Nevin Shapiro and Dah U go together.

The truth is always more damaging in the end.

Canes own the state of Florida. Facts are facts. UF has only played a couple of good teams the rest of the teams on their schedule that they've played so far are nobodies. UAB??FAwho???LSU and BAMA are the only real teams the UFelons have played so far. That's it. They even have "FURMAN" on their schedule. Waste of a spot to fill with a team like Furman. Might as well just put some D3 school there. Even Vanderbilt is garbage. Coach Muskrat must be scratching his head wondering why is boys suck so much d&*k? UF has more arrest in 3 yrs than The U has in 15yrs. DAMN!

Congrats on that record you can keep it.

WE STILL OWN YOU. TOOK YOU GUYS 15YRS TO BEAT US AND YOU GUYS STILL CAN'T GET THE PEACH BOWL OUT OF YOUR HEADS. HEY BY THE WAY, NICE JORTS. DOUCHES!!!!!!


IT'S A CANE THANG AND YOU WOULDN'T AND COULDN'T UNDERSTAND.

Oh yea, the Rock is the man.

UM needs to recruit more Samoans.

Simply because the herald has no integrity and will do anything to keep this story alive. In the end we won't get hit as hard as everyone thinks because we have done everything for the NCAA to make them happy. That picture in the bowling alley will be the reason why shalalala gets fired because she is supposed to represent the university and protect it but she didn't. She let anyone with a checkbook walk right and and thrown money at her without doing a background check. This happens in all universities the only problem is that this got out of control because she keeps her eyes and ears close when she receives anything and when she cashes it all. Her years at The U have and will be tainted by this because it happened under her watch. Some director she is for allowing a 40yr old who has no friends unless he buys them, hang around teenagers. Why do you think that Kirby Fuknutt got on his horse and rode off to texas tech? To be with his family?? BS, to run for his life away from this before it blows up in his face. Now nothing will happen to him because he left the program and can say he had nothing to do with it. He's a pu^&y, just like shitpiro is. You should read that new article about how the NCAA is handling the investigation. As you read it, it'll show that it's looking better and better for The U. If you're an intelligent person, then you'll be able to decipher for yourself from that article.

Pell Grant couldn't stop us. We get knocked down but we always get right back up and then win a national championship and slap people in the face with it. History always seems to repeat itself. We just repeat with championships.

I'm sorry to hear that Donna Shalala is going to be fired, if only she had done a better job personally investigating the business dealings of every person who made a minor donation to UM and following every student athlete around every weekend to make sure they weren't accepting favors from boosters instead of wasting her time running the university we wouldn't be in this pickle.

We are the canes
Bring back Uncle Luke and pell grant fraud
Nothing can stop us
We are so good, look at all the NFL player we have, bunch of pro bowlers
They have helped us amass such a great record this past decade
They have helped us win so many bowl games in the past 5 years
They have helped us win so many coastal division and ACC titles
We are the canes, we have a 4 - 4 record but are really 8 - 0, just because
We have the best coach in the world, did great at Temple and is now 4 - 4, but really 8 - 0 you know 3 plays here, 4 plays there, we almost win
We own the Noles, Gators, and USF too, just look at the most recent games....total domination
We play in front of huge crowds, if we play away or if FSU or UF come to town

It's simple, if you want the position of director of a university that everyone loves to hate then you need to keep your eyes and ears open at all times and if someone, from out of no where is donating large sums of money to your program. Do a simple background check. It's easy and literally takes no time. Shitpiro had already a list of charges before everything came to light. If she did her job she would have seen it and would have stopped accepting money from him and return anything that she did receive. Plain and simple. Stand for integrity not stupidity with a smile and your hand stretched out. Like you said, her job is to stand there with a stupid smile on her face and accept checks like an idiot. Your words not mine. That is a moronic way of looking at the job of the director of any university. Despicable.

Her time at the U is forever tainted. Even candy randy knew this guy was bad news and randy isn't the brightest apple on the tree so what does that make her? Stop defending the guilty. You're the only one on her side.


A picture is worth 1,000 words, or 10k in Donna's case. A stupid grin, a hand on the check, a lounge named after the felon. All routine in the life of the president of sun tan U.

Gators 0-4 in their last four games with three blowouts and one massive choke job, so you change your ID and your MO, but you are still that same old Curse.

Get a job, get a girl, and get a life, fool.

Funny you mention Peel Grants, I hear Charlie Pell gave his own form of grants to get the Gators their first SEC title after 80 years of trying. What? They had to give up that SEC title? How sad......

Charlie Pell to Charlie Weis is the Gator legacy.

Sorry, Charlie!

I didn't make up those numbers the other day, S****'s check of $50,000 was literally 0.00000625% of the donations Shalala's accepted in the past five years.

So take the amount of effort it would take for Shalala to discover and expose a massive Ponzi scheme that eluded business savvy investors for almost a decade and multiply that effort by 160,000,000 and try to imagine what you're suggesting the president of UM should do with her time and resources.

I don't know what you think you know about N**** S**** but there was nothing to find out about his Ponzi scheme until it fell apart in 2009. No FBI case, no jilted investors, nothing. The check in question was given to UM in 2008.

And I know I'm the only one on this blog that defends her but try to understand that nothing anyone says on this blog matters and the people that do matter (i.e. UM's board of trustees) agree with me.

Otherwise there would be a snowflake's chance in hell that she could be fired, which there isn't.

HERE COMES THE NUTZ BUSTERS OF CANES FANS

everyone really needs to leave coach golden alone, with the media asking him all the time and speculating that he's leave this is just gonna irritate him, all of you media sharks please leave al golden alone

Gator fans are so hard up the only joy they have is to hang around on a Cane board and agitate.How sad.

when i’m going to write in my blog, i come here and read your articles so i get inspired to write very well
