UM extends Al Golden's contract through 2019 season

The University of Miami and head coach Al Golden have agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension that will run through February 1, 2020.

This pretty much ends any and all speculation he will be leaving for Penn State, his alma mater.

“I look forward to working side-by-side with Coach Golden for many years,” athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in a statement released by the school around 6 p.m. Friday. “Al has done a fantastic job of rebuilding and solidifying the foundation of our football program while fostering success both on and off of the field. He has been a first-class representative of our University and I am confident that with Al leading the way, our future is very bright.”

Golden’s extension adds four years to the initial five-year contract which began in December 2010.

“My family loves it in South Florida, we have embraced the community and we could not be more excited about the future of the Miami Hurricanes football team,” Golden said in the statement. “I can’t thank President Shalala and Shawn Eichorst enough for their support and commitment to our student-athletes and staff. We are ready to hit the recruiting road and begin our preparations for the 2012 season.”

We'll get reaction after the game.

Smart decesion by UM...makes me believe Donna Shalalalala may not have known about it.

she is the president stupid she knows about dummy Shawn Eichorst didnt do it by himself.

Good move by the U, Golden will bring the U back

I think we should have got a coach from the south to coach the U.

A Cane clUck say wat ?

we can get a coach from the south but the fans dont even show up what a disgrace.

J12 is gone

What a pathetic football team!

Good riddance to this senior class, and especially to Jacory Harris. He is a career choke.

And Fisch with his stupid plays into the line with a soft runner like Miller? Dumb coaching. Time to evaluate his worth. D"onofrio shoud stay. We have seen flashes of what's to come on defense.

And Miller can go to the NFL and get his soft running ego the heck out of Coral Gables. The guy couldn't break a tackle if he cared.

Our defense fought hard and that is hopeful for the future. Sean Spence has been a credit to his class and will be missed.

Why are our receivers never open game after game?

And why do we make the other mediocre QB look like an NFL first rounder? For sure, the defensive secondary is one of the worst in college football. And Ray Ray can take his dreadlocks out of Coral Gables, and Benjaman will not be missed. Talk about gutless football players with no heart!

I'd have put Morris into the game in the fourth quarter. The heck with the seniors!

Only good news today is that these bums will be leaving the program, and that we have a coach who will recruit kids with heart and character. He will get us to respectability.

Speaking of heart, I was able to check in on LSU - Arkansas, two teams that play with passion and pride. And even Colarodo - Utah was better to watch than this pathetic excuse for a Canes football team.

Randy Shannon never lost to BC

Furman looms!

Furman, Furman, Furman

will miss the Gators' final two regular season games and the team's bowl game should they beat Furman on Saturday.

Wow a doubt from a gator homer about beating Furman?

All those resources. All that phony blubbering about recruiting and facilities and stadium sell-outs.

All amount to squat. Epic Failure. Garages continue to puke themselves. 100 years of the same ol' Gatards for sure.

Let's assume all that you say is true. Then why have the Canes won more NCs, had more players drafted in the first round, more players drafted, more prestigious nationally...

Need I go on? You anger speaks volumes, swamp donkey.

100 years of failure will bookend your 4 years of success. How miserable is that, Gatr maggot?

And I haven't even mentioned the lowly academic status UTrailer enjoys among a conference known for its lowly academic status.

You cannot win. You lose. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Average "GPS" for an idiot graduate like you?

South of Clownsville. Let me know when they start tracking freshmen GPS and I'll be sure to check their locations.

If you meant GPA, then the GPA of Gatr trash freshmen goes up as their academic ranking sinks. Grade inflation?

Bottom line? UTrailer diplomas are worthless and in no way prepare you for a career unless it is in redneck civics.

Seems like Gatr maggot is a little irked.

If you can't stand the heat (or the truth) get out of the burning dumpster fire in the trailerpark.


"Hey, Gomer, someone offered me $.50 for my UTrailer diploma. It took me 7 years, 3 pounds of meth and 56 home football games to earn so I turned it down. Although for an extra $.50 I woulda dun it. Maybe I can find him again using my El Camino's new GPA,"


Owned again you Gatr maggot.

"Get me my meth."

"Where is it, Granny?"

It's in the bathtub in the outhouse, Early."

- The Waltons, Gainesville style.

You are owned again, Gomer. This is too easy. Please stop. I cannot laugh this hard all the time.

ooooooh. That hurt, Gomer. Oooooooh. What a low blow. You are making me very angry.

Of course, when you are talking per capita you point falls apart. If they pulled the trailers out of Gainesville that place would be a ghost town except for the 50K undergrads struggling to earn a worthless diploma so they graduate completely unprepared for a meaningful career.

Much like yourself.

Ignorance and arrogance. It's all that is taught at UTrailer.

What is falling faster? Perry's poll numbers or the academic ranking of UFelony?

BWWAHAHAHAHA. The nation laughs at you.

Gainesville. Puhlease.

Let's talk gator football!!! Oh yea, nothing to talk about. What happens if they lose to Furman? Drop the football program?

Let's see. Gatr maggots have nothing to be proud of. The team stinks , the campus is a dump, the diploma is worthless.

Soooooo, let's hope that the Canes program is shut down. Won't happen, of course. But insecure Gatr maggots have nothing left.

It truly sucks, to be, a FloriDUH Gatard.

The trash of the State of Florida resides in the trailerpark.

Not an indication on my feelings towards Coach Golden; however Hocutt, Shalala and Freet set this program back many years. The way they mishandled the firing of Coach Shannon cost us a victory against Miami's most hated rival Notre Dame. Losing Shannon cost Miami Brandon HArris's return which lost our Defense for this year. I have never been a Fan that has raised hell To fire a coach and/or Administrator, However the Board or Directors needs to a serious look at replacing Donna Shalala.

Ohhhhhh nooooooo. A recycled "no stadium" attack.

Geeee. Haven't heard that 12 million times. Lack of a stadium hasn't stopped Miami from:

Having more titles than Gatr maggot;
More national prestige;
Better academics.

Conversely, having 90k rednecks in a stadium hasn't helped you stop sinking academically or stop being the national laughingstock or lead the country in felony arrests or go 5-5.

Hmmm. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Great Job by bringing Coach Golden back now if he can get a new staff and a new strength and conditioning coach and get this senior class out of here what a pathetic bunch of quitters im sorry just a frustrated fan i hope he fits the needs of this program in recruiting they can't even win their last game as a cane Thanks Randy you are the best.............

Funny how a Gator grad thinks a 4 hour drive up the turnpike to a desolate backwater somehow makes him a world traveller.

Let me know when Trailerville has the cultural diversity or international status of Miami. I wonder why a Gatr maggot like him lives here.



Trash. Douche. Disgusting trailer garbage. What difference does it make.?

It's all Gatr trash in the end.

The Gatr maggot loser goes out with "friends" then rushes home to post a response on this blog. And home before 11.

No doubt the loser Gatr (redundant) has no women. Just like in undergrad. All 7 years. Florida is last in the country in public education spending and it shows. All that Bull Crap Gatard money does nothing for your career. Thus, an already worthless diploma becomes moreso.

Wonder why the mythical Gatard Nation is the most disgusting fanbase in the country? Duuuuuuhhhhhhh.

So a Gatr loser is a "lazy bum?".

No, you don't say? I'm shocked.

What's next? Gatr rednecks are human garbage?

Tell us something we don't know, Einstein.

UFailure is a too 10 Douchiest school?

GQ already told us that.

FAILURE. it's what you are known for.

Naaaaaah, Gatr maggot. Just letting you know your place in the pecking order.

Just saw the Furman score.

To say that UFailure is underachieving garbage is an insult to underachieving garbage.

You suck, UTrash. All the facilities and alleged five stars.

Quitters. Failure. It is your legacy and destiny.

Envious of a bloated institution failing in its academic mission?

If that's what helps you rationalize your wasted undergrad, then go with that, Gatr maggot. You don't laugh at something you envy and there is a lot of laughter directed at you and your Billybob Gatr Trash Nation.

I'm here not "their." Of course, if I was "their" I would know where I was because of "GPA."

Ever feel like you wasted your undergrad years?


Gutted and filleted.

Exposed you.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaah Maggot.
You are too stupid to know envy from insult.

When the dummy is cornered he claims envy.

Didn't teach irony and nuance at UFailure. Figures.

The Nolie beatdown looms.

6-6. Wow. Aren't all those alleged 4 and 5 star recruits juniors and seniors now? And they puked themselves?

Can't say the country's most disgusting fanbase doesn't deserve it.

First Emmitt now Urban?

Urban prepared to accept tOSU job and puke all over UFailure.

Oh, you thought he was done coaching because of stress or esophageal spasms or a wart on the brain? Nahhhhh. Just convenient excuses to get out of the most disgusting shantytown in the country.

Just when Gatr Trash Nation thought we had forgotten about Emmit's puke job now this.

You can't win, Gatr trash.

22 point win? We are talking about the Furman Firballs right, Gatr maggot?

How the once mighty and disgusting have fallen.



Ask your Moms. You can find her "their" by using your GPA.

Joke's in you. You hold a UFailure diploma.

Toss it in the trash. It is hurting you more than you know.

Great. My life isn't defined by a football team.

At a disgusting bloated failed academic institution, that is all you have. And by the 6-6 puke job, you don't have a lot. What a worthless 7 years you spent.

In the end, however, Canes > UFailure.
"their, there and they're.". You may want to Wikipedia that, Gomer. It's the database of a UFailure grad.

Douche and Night, it will be pleasant to watch FSU put up 60 on the gators next weekend. How does FURMAN put up almost 500 yards against that vaunted SEC defense. I guess its just a down year in the SEC rigghhhttt? I guess Curse is a canes fan and I guess he has a right to be excited about the future with Golden as coach, not so much for the 8th best team in the SEC with the ball boy/coach Muschamp.

Of course. Didn't think it would come out of the toothless swamp donkey this early but there it is.

What's the chant of the loser teams?

"SEC. SEC.". Yeah. When your team sucks so bad and is a huge failure, cheer for your conference.

Only, Bama and LSU despise Gatr garbage almost as bad as the Canes and Noles.

Yay. SEC. We suck. SEC. Epic Failire. SEC. Academic failure. SEC. Urban is about to drop a steamer on us. SEC.

Yep. Just so oblivious and delusional Gatr trash like you are aware.

The Noles will put a 50 spot on that team of underachieving quitters. That's ok, though. You don't care now maggot. Just chant SEC.

National Signing Day Champs. Regular season Chumps.

Typical Gatr Trash.

So much for the "we sell out our stadium." So much for the ALLEGED top recruiting classes. So much for Gatr family. A four year run built on a stack of rusty double-wides has come crashing down.

GAINESVILLE — Thousands of empty seats in a stadium that was once perennially packed.

No superstar players on a field that was once overrun with NFL scouts.

And the once-mighty Florida Gators struggling in a 54-32 victory over lower-division Furman just for the right to become bowl eligible.

But idiot Gatr fan says: "we won by 22. That is reason for chest-thumping."

And you wonder why you are the most disgusting fanbase in the country.

Here's all you need to know about UF's talent level: There was one NFL scout in the press box on Saturday, and he was there to scout a Furman player. That's right: NFL scouts are now coming to Gators home games to scout the other team.

Agreed. Shut it down. Gatr Trash Nation does not deserve a blog to spew their arrogant idiotic nonsense.

The trailerpark is burning. Do you know where your extinguisher is?
