Come-from-behind win at Georgia Tech proves these Canes have heart

It was one thing for the Hurricanes to rally back from a 14-0 deficit in the first quarter at Boston College in the season opener. What UM did against Georgia Tech Saturday was much different. It was on another level.

How many teams blow a 19-zip lead, give up 36 unanswered points, and come back from 17 points down late in the third quarter to win in overtime on the road at a conference opponent? Not many.

That's why UM coach Al Golden was running around Bobby Dodd Stadium Saturday night like the late Jim Valvano -- just looking for someone to embrace. How excited was Golden that his team pulled off a 42-36 come-from-behind victory? Canes mascot Sebastian the Ibis may end up on this week's injury report with an upper extremity because of the chest bump Golden gave him. "I hope that's not on YouTube," Golden quipped afterward, trying to dry himself from the ice bath he took.

This Miami team still has a long way to go. Great teams don't blow 19-point leads and give up 36 straight points to anybody. But teams with real heart don't ever give up either. That's what Golden has established with this group -- a team with a real heartbeat. A team with no quit.

Couldn't say that last year. It took Golden 16 games to weed out the bad apples, for guys to completely buy in. But that's what's finally happened. The result of that long process is what we saw Saturday.

Are the Canes back? No. Until they start playing defense for four quarters they won't be a real BCS bowl contender. But is UM ready to contend for a Coastal Division title? Maybe. They're in first place.

But we'll find out a lot more about them this coming Saturday when they host N.C. State at Sun Life Stadium. First place teams don't lose at home to conference foes that aren't ranked. Instead, they go on winning streaks. That's the next step. Three wins in a row? Never happened under Golden here. But opportunity knocks. When the Canes answer that bell then you can really start to feel good about this team.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Hard to go with one guy because so many had career days, but Anthony Chickillo gets it in my eyes. The sophomore defensive end finished with a career high seven tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack and pretty much helped UM's defense regain its footing in the fourth quarter. Without Chickillo's big stops, Georgia Tech doesn't end up in 2nd and 3rd and longs and UM's defense probably doesn't get off the field. Chick was huge.

PLAY OF THE GAME: So many great ones to choose from. Rashawn Scott's leaping 25-yard catch on 3rd and 8 at the Georgia Tech 40 before UM scored to make it 36-29 stands out and deserves honorable mention. So does Phillip Dorsett's 65-yard touchdown catch. That set the tone for the day. But no play was bigger than Eddie Johnson's fourth and inches stop at the 1-yard line. Tech quarterback Tevin Washington was in perfect position to slip past the Canes' defense for a third touchdown. But Johnson, who finished with a team-high nine tackles, was right there to shut the door because he stuck with his assignment. As Golden pointed out, Georgia Tech probably converts that play 95 percent of the time.

OFFENSE: The Canes churned out 609 yards of total offense -- the team's most since they crushed McNeese State back in 2000. This wasn't McNeese State. This was a pretty good Al Groh defense. Quarterback Stephen Morris wasn't perfect. He continued missing a few open receivers and got picked when he under threw Scott on a go route. But he still had a career day with 436 yards and two touchdowns (the last UM QB to throw for 400 was Ken Dorsey back in 2002). Morris engineered a gutsy 8 play, 91 yard scoring drive at the end of regulation and helped UM's offense finish 11 of 16 on third down conversions -- most of those of the 3rd and long variety. Mike James? Career day with 89 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Dorsett (9 catches, 184 yards, 1 TD and Davon Johnson (7-107) each had career days while Allen Hurns tried to battle back in his first game back from injury. The offense line? Didn't give up a sack. Ben Jones saw the most action he ever has in a Canes uniform and Seantrel Henderson once again manned both sides of the tackle spot. Except for two turnovers, you couldn't have asked for a better day. GRADE: A-

DEFENSE: It was another up-and-down afternoon for Mark D'Onofrio's group. The first quarter and fourth quarter were spectacular. The second and third quarters were miserable. The bottomline: D'Onofrio's D got just enough stops not to be the reason why UM lost this game. The Canes didn't force any turnovers. But they got pressure on Washington the few times he dropped back to throw (he was 3 of 8 for 132 yards) and held Georgia Tech almost 90 yards below their season average in rushing with 287 yards. UM produced eight tackles for loss. Chickillo and Johnson had huge days. So did Jimmy Gaines, who did a stellar job filling in for Denzel Perryman at middle linebacker. Gaines had seven tackles and nearly came up with a huge interception. Brandon McGee and Kacy Rodgers each had six tackles and constantly came up from the secondary to make big stops. Saturday's effort wasn't a masterpiece. Georgia Tech had four plays go for more than 30 yards and two passes go for 50 yards plus. But it was good enough when it counted and much better than I thought it would be. GRADE: B.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Except for a 46-yard kickoff return by Duke Johnson, this was definitely the one area the Canes struggled. Jake Wieclaw missed a chip shot field goal and booted a kickoff out of bounds. The coverage teams were dreadful. The Yellow Jackets' Jamal Golden twice returned punts much further than he should have and Orwin Smith made up for his bonehead safety with a couple nice returns. Now, the Canes have another problem on their hands. All-ACC punter Dalton Botts could be out awhile. He hurt his ankle and was on crutches Saturday. Matt Goudis got off an ugly 37-yard line drive punt filling in for Botts that led to a long a return. The Canes have work to do this week here. GRADE: D.

STOCK RISING
> WR Davon Johnson:
 With Malcolm Lewis going down, Johnson's opportunities figure to expand. So far, he's proven he's reliable, making big catches left and right. Johnson's development is another feather in the cap of Golden and his staff. Basically, he's another guy that did nothing under Randy Shannon's staff and suddenly has proven he can help.
> OT Ben Jones: Another guy who can fall into that category if he starts contributing more. Jones played lot in the second half. Golden said it was due to guys being banged up. At least Jones didn't make any major mistakes Saturday.

STOCK SLIPPING
> CB Tracy Howard: He didn't make a tackle and I'm not sure I ever really saw him get into the game. Word has it Howard may have had some words with D'Onofrio a week ago. Golden said last week Howard had to freelance a little less. Needless to say it's a situation to keep an eye on.

Howard does not have the size yet to play against a D like Georgia Tech. Gunter, Finnie, and McGee were basically the only CBs that played the entire game. It is no coincidence those 3 are also the biggest (and likely strongest) in the unit, and also the most experienced.

Let's not forget Denzel didnt play. I also didnt remember seeing much VT. Must give props to Gaines.

Tracy needs to relax and focus. You have Deon, Duke,flowers, and malcolm before he got hurt playing at a higher level. Bush is a stud just like Duke.

Last year's recruiting class got us some special peices like Dorset, EJ, Denzel, and Chick. This years class is building on that. Next year's has to due the same.

You can see why these kids love this staff so much and Golden gets stuff out of kids like Streeter and Jacory that RS couldn't. He ran over to malcolm and was holding him like he was his son.

Wow, great game. Old-school Cane's magic.

Anyone know what's up with Darius Smith? There was so much hype about him during the off-season - the weight loss, superhuman strength, new attitude, etc. etc. Yet he never seems to make a play - not even sure if he's in the rotation. Any ideas?

the thing i have learned about this team besides winning a game they were not supposed to, was the fact they are a family. they are growing together, a special bond that we havent seen here in years. the fact that they are young, and in this together, might be the "chip on their shoulder" needed to bring us back, and prove themselves as relevant. it will take time, more than this season, but it appears to be growing. i hope they keep their heads in the game, next week is no pushover. ncstate is a good team, and we still have a long way to go. but congrats on the win, beat the pack and go canes

Tracy Howard needs to buy in. It's not easy being a major high school star and then realize you're just a young, unproven college player as a true freshman. He has a great career ahead of him. He needs to listen to the coaches and learn. I hope he settles down and realizes this sooner than later. It appears L. Robinson is learning this lesson, and he's an upperclassman.

To win on the road at Boston College and Georgia Tech like this is a tribute to the talent on this team, especially on offense.

If the defense can rise up a nothc, this team is gonna be scary.

Gota love the heart these young guys showed great team win also, outstanding effort to hold the ga tech offense to reasonable nums on the ground,.. deon bush looks as though he's poised to step up an become the next leader of the defense leading by example an actions.... Hopefully this team will gel an come together even more as the season progresses... I'm lookin forward to how they handle all the injuries an see who's willing to step up an take responsibility great season so far but its a long season with a lot of milestones these young guys are capable of surpassing if we can keep winning our acc games they nation will have to acknowledge what Al has done with these youngsters # beat the pack

i disagree with it all...play of the game??...al golden running out and holding,in his arms,an obviously very hurt and scared malcolm lewis...if that's not a head coach that truly cares for his players then what is...NEVER have i seen a coach EVER do that in my life...saban or muschamp,yeah right...what a man..

This is a much better article than the garbage Susan wrote earlier using words like chumps and whatnot.

Right on point.

Tracy Howard may be acting like a prima donna. I realiz donofrio is a bit rough around the edges but tracy is a guppy in a world populated by sharks. Boy needs to man up and accept reality and work is butt off to get bigger and better. Hes not Darrell Revis or Champ Bailey yet... So he needs to eat sh&t for a while like everyone does in life till your chance for lory comes

I thought the same thing what canedude1.When I saw Coach Golden on the field comforting M.Lewis,I thought...Wow,I've never seen that kind of care for a fallen player who probably thought for the moment his career was over before it had a chance to begin.This coach is special.I cant wait to see this team evolve.It's gonna be fun.

canes are on the way back. we will when against nc state big. we will also upset notre dame. canes offense is going to be very very good and balenced for a while.

Lots of great comments here. Thank you.

That was really touching to see Coach Golden comfort Malcolm Lewis. I hope the young WR is able to make a strong recovery. He held onto the ball, a feat in itself, and is apparently as tough kid. Recover fast, Malcolm!

Any parent looking where to send their kid will see that Al Golden is the real deal as a man. Although he is demanding, as a coach should be, it is obvious he loves the kids and the U. He has the fire and the spirit.

I hope Tracy settles down. As a highly-rated star, playing in a system can be tough. Would hate to see us lose such a talented guy. It is only a matter of time until he blossoms as a Cane. Stay with it, Tracy.

What a great comback win. Haven't seen the quit we saw in some of the recent UM teams in this group. And they are young and the sky's the limit.

They deserve our tangible support. So be at the NC State game and put your passion for the Canes out there for all to see and hear!

IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!

Very well put dbc.

I don't think it's going to be easy this Saturday. You South Fla guys have to go out and support our Canes.
I'm doing my part the following week in Chicago.

GO CANES!!!!

Wishing Malcolm Lewis the best!

Hope the Canes are not reading their press clippings, getting big fat heads or looking past NC state to Notre Dame.

They need to stick to the same game formations as they had against GT, work their butts off to be in great shape this week, block and straight up tackling with a four man defensive line and close up LB support plus Cane downfield passes that got them the Win at GT.

Canes need to pay attention to the little details this week and the big thing (the Win) will take care of itself.

Before everyone go making up their stories about Tracey and judging him get the facts. I don't have facts therefore I won't goon tElling him to buy in. Now if he made a competitive remark to our DC then I don't have much of a problem with that. Yes this mid was a high school stud that may feel that this week ass press defense we run is what makes"us" as fans question the defensive players hearts. We go up to press coverage yet never put a hand on the receiver. This I can speak on because I played corner at a high level. We have the speed but in my opinion why play press if you're going to turn and run w/o showing the route down. Come on DC you need to buy intothisprogram too. These are elite athletes with elite speed (from the south) not 3rd tier guys going to Temple. Trust them more for a change, what's the most that can happen? They get beat? Watch your film, it happens anyhow. And fans please stop bringing Coach Shannon into every conversation with Golden. Do you do this with your current girlfriends? Constantly bring up your ex. Get over it or go back to her.

If these elite kids from the south are so speedy, then why have we been burned for the last 3 years including against GTech with the deep ball. You have to realize their are florida ckids all over the country with speed and their are speedy kids from other places playing D-1. Reggie Bush?

So dont give me that garbage.

But I agree lets withold judgement on Tracy for now- any word about Luther Robinson or Curtis Porter anyone?

The way Golden held Malcolm and Malcolm hugged Golden (obviously the kid was in agony) sjhows how much Golden loves these kids and this program. This is from ((holla) a guy that played against a former hated rival of the U- Penn State. He acts like a cane, he coaches with passion and he seems to love this program-- Parents and recruits- Here's where its ayt... Plus it doesnt hurt that the U has the most players in NFL rosters (current data tied with USC)!

I agree- NC state is choc full of florida kids and they play aggressive always. They have a drop back passer so Donofrio must tee off on him/. Lets see 813 cane if your theory is true- but Tracy and Deon and all the freshman need to buck down and learn... and listen to their coaches and not give back lip!

Last year we have 4319 yards against us.
GT - 419
BCU - 355
BC - 508
KSU - 498
Sorry, 1780 total @ 445 defensive average. At this rate Miami ends up at 5340 year end. Its still a major problem. Savor the win and a great one at that....but were still no where out of the woods. Plus concern about sanctions next year (5 lost scholarships at least and 2 bowl games) my prediction. Lets see what happens going forward. Great win but really more of a moral victory than anything. FSU vs Clemson....now that was true creative coaching ability from both sides on each team. First half of Clemson offensive plays were fantastic....why are we not creative like that? You see how FSU shut down Clemson? You think our DC would have been able to do that? Nope....couldn't do it against BC and they are terrible. I'll be the lone basher....coaches prove it that you have it against real teams. KSU is your benchmark. FSU = 667 total yards last night...wow All this rebuilding stuff....fck that....its been year after year for 11 years. Plenty of turnaround programs done within 3 and in bowls. Clemson fired the DC after the bowl last year and he was good! Why is our DC still here? e gave up amost 500 yards against s weak unranked team...FSU/Clemson last night would have crushed our defense. What do you think would have happened 2/3rd quarter with those teams last night especially Clemson with that option.....600 plus yards. Both quarterbacks would have killed us.

Please we havent given the NFL any players since Butch davis and he alone was responsible for ALL the Miami current greats...that was 12 years ago.....we have been dry since then so forget the NFL great stuff.

How is Tracy Howard's stock "slipping"?? Again you turn what could've been a good write-up to another shotty display of journalism.

Howard is a true freshman and there is a lot of talent at the position he is playing. The system is complicated for a freshman to fully grasp plus he still is developing physically. To have any expectations for him at all this year shows that you lack real football knowledge.

Nobody's stock is slipping after that game. What a joke of a thing to even say.

No NFL players since Butch Davis? where have you been ? on Mars? when I just watch a few games- Derrek Epps Leonard Hankerson, Streeter,Sam Shields-Lamra Thomas all that I can think of off hand- all recent UMers

Where have you been? They are not even staters. Butch put in about 25 players vs your 4. Hankerson/shields are the only ones really....hankerson is still second string...streeter is on injured reserve....and epps is on the practice squad. your funny.....wow....those recent canes are really carrying the NFL....think about it.....Butch has been gone 12 yrs now and thats all that Miami has to show since his departure.....fking sad. Like ive said.....the higher ups have ruined miami football and nobody has been fired.

Hey Jim, Ever hear of that guy named Jimmy Graham?

Yea, Tracy needs to chill. He can freelance, and become the Honey Badger all he wants when we have other players in place to make up for him missing his assignment and "freelancing". ;-)

frank gore ring a bell??

Posted by: jim gallo | September 23, 2012 at 07:12 PM

Clemson's O play calls fantastic? They were running trick plays because they knew their defense would not let them hang in that game.

FSU also caught them lip reading Jimbo so they had towel boys block him. That is when FSU pulled away.

Don't forget antrel rolle, calais campbell, kenny phillips, devin hester, kevin olsen and colin mccarthy all were post Butch.

yes frank gore.....2001, I stand corrected. So instead of 12 yrs, it is now 11 years....ty, lol. What is a "trick play" anyway. Clemson ran what it need to run and so did FSU. The point is that it was fun watching it from an offensive perspective....both coaches drawing good offensive plays against a great defense (FSU). thats what i am talking about....wtf arnt we doing the same type of stuff. Also what about Oregon the game after....chip kelly is the best....oregon overtaking a franchise like Miami...wtf does that happen? Living in the NE you dont get to see all the cane games....you are forced to watch the rest of the ncaa....then it will all make sense to you.

All post butch..please 2001/2002.....were going on 2013. USC has become the "Miami / Butch Davis" avenue for NFL the last 10 years......while we were dic....ing around with cokers/shannons and now goldens. Wake me up when were in the top 10.

Jon Beason, DJ Williams!

why is it that the home paper always is in ther trying to stir up stuff. especially with ncaa coming down, and the recruiting fornext year, makes me wonder if the herald enjoys losing teams. maybe they should buy the dolphins. the tracy stuff will work itself out. beat nc stat go canes

Jim, lamar miller and vernon were playing today vs jets in miami, #2, it was 11 draft I believe, but U, even with randys crappy records, WERE 1 or 2 IN MOST KIDS DRAFTED--GO LOOK IT UP...........were they 1st rounders? no, but DRAFTED----------8-9 from 12 draft are on NFL rosters.....

#2 Jimbo has been at FSU for 5-6 years now, even when bowden was there, SO HE HAS SENIORS AND DEPTH

#3. WE R PLAYING MAINLY FRESH AND SOPH,,,,,

#4--TRACY, SUCK IT UP, EAT AND PUT ON SOME LBS, AND THINGS WILL COME EASY NEXT SUMMER_---------------

it all goes in cycles. Gators were bad from around 2000/01- till after zook, and got bad after meyer. (THEY HAVENT PLAYED ANYONE THIS YR YET, TENN ISNT GOOD).

2. OU WAS (SOONERS) WERE HOORIBLE FROM LATE 80's till 2000. Nebraska has been irrelavent for 10 years. FSU WAS down for 10 years....

USC WASNT RELEVENT SINCE EARLY 80;s ttill 03/04.....

ALABAMA WAS DOWN SINCE MID 90's till 4 years ago


MIAMI IS FINALLY HEADED RIGHT

Miami had 2 Nat Titles taken away from refs, and 8th was 1 pass play.
1988 season, ON THE U DOC. I wrote this last week. Gary scored a TD at no dame (we lost 31-30), bur refs called a fumble(no instant reply then). Ndame won title that year although miami really won game.

2003=----------NO EFFIN PASS INT VS OH STATE.. Miami was celebrating already.

THOSE 2 refs called were nat titles 6 and 7

and the 87 fiesta bowl, vinnys 5th intercetption was in end zone. and with 5 pix we only lost 14-10 and he was on 10 yd line throwing into endzone. WE R 3 PLAYS FROM HAVIN 8 TITLES SINCE 84.....NOT BAD

813 cane great post

what ever happened to Mat Patchan- remeber him The son of a former cane who held his own High School press conference with a cane and gator cap and the put on the UF cap- what an egomaniac. I think he's been in G ville for 5 - yrs done nothing but get hurt.

Jim GAllo-

UM hs had the most players in NFL rosters in the lsat 6 years. This year they are still #1 tied with USC. This year they placed about 6 or 7 in rosters. Does Lamar Miller and Olivier Vernon, Forston, and Travis Benjamin sound familiar?

Last year after a 6-6 season theyplaced about 8 in the NFL.

You are talking non sense. Ok. we get it. You like Butch Davis. Where is he now? He is a pariah. He oversaw one of the dirtiest programs in cfb in UNC. Makes what UM did with the sh*tiro thing look like nothing. So shut it with that garbage.

Um is still NFL U. In case you dont have a TV, or a cell phone, look up who scored TDs yesterday: Graham, Moss, Benjamin.Look up who is in the top ten in rushing, receiving, tackles and INTs.

NFL-U will always be.

sorry.....wrong, usc has put more players in the nfl since 2001 than um....Since Butch davis left.

Jim -

How old are you bro? You seem Like a teenage girl or a very poor excuse for a man. Let's talk about the article and the Nice come back win. The past is the past, Al Golden and his players Canes are the future.

Next up NC State, LET'S GO CANES!

I will have to agree with the naysayers that IF the Canes come out flat and lose Sat - that this program just can't seem to get over the hump. I believe Al Golden will have them ready to play "I hope". It has been a very difficult 6 to 7 years for us Cane fans!

nope...sorry, wont happen. DC will not be able to handle any type of explosive offense. DC is averaging 433 yards of offense against weak unranked teams. FSU-Oregon-Clemson and the like or the top 18 teams would rip yards against our defense. I bet Miami comes close to 5000 total yards against them this year. Your living in a dream world and dont understand how good the rest of the ncaa top teams are. We not even in their league. Like ive said..prove it. year after year of media and fan BS....make it happen. All these teams have the same troubles.

Hey gallo, been reading your comments. You are my type of guy with all the qualities I'd want for someone on my team. Surely, if facing a tough task, you'd be my right hand man. Surely.

Lets see if goldens decisions are worthy of him taking over this team....lets see what he does with his DC. At the rate we are racking up yards against soon youll need a stewardess.....how about the OC play calling...exciting right. Also the #4 team FSU in the country as 8 more jr/sr on the roster vs us. They are all freshman and sophmores....so enough with the "this team is young" stuff. Im not a player, Im a fan that expects alot more than some green pea sitting in his dorm smoking weed. I am not Golden fan. I would have looked harder and taken more time rather than rushing the decision. But he has a chance to prove himself and is getting his 2 million. He got 80% of his targeted recruits.....so lets see how he handles his defense going forward.

Hey hey hey, let's talk about what happen Saturday at tech. Agree the U still need to shape up, the D lost one of the most impressive LB on Spence and multiple injuries are killing them. Also agree the team sputter sometimes giving up points they shouldn't , Saturday after a great catch Dorsey fumble the ball and next series Morris got pick that cost us 14 points and swing the game to GT. Now in order to get consistent we need a staff that also get consistent, the U had 3 coaches in 9 years that is a big cause of our inconsistency, finally we have some good happening, but let be prudent and embrace the change. Because of the Crappiro situation and don't forget please the UM administration that want to demise the violent sports (but love the money it bring), the U have been alienated in the past few years. We r very eager to embrace succes because we expected be patient.

Agreed....all im saying is that the statistics are not good now on defense. Lets address it before the season gets away from us. You dont want to be 3-3 mid season with momentum being critical at that point. Just picture the 2/3rd quarter GT performance against FSU...they would have put us away at that point with no hope of recovery..its a problem that need to be address NOW.

Hmmmmmm.I m a little surprised from what I just read regarding Howard.He didn t strike me that he was an overly selfish player.I ve been ticked off at D Onofrio too but if I wanted to play....I d of kept it quiet.Ha.Hopefully he ll grow up some and buy into the Coaches.Looks like finally the rest of the team has bought in.BTW...I ve been very,very surprised at the fast evolvement/development of Bush.He s playing very intelligently and holding his own so early.Didn t expect that from him or that he was that good a player.He s beginning to come on and show he can be a great one at the U.Good luck to the kid.....Lewis.

@Gallo We r in the same page, but constructive criticism is good sometimes. Lets digest this comeback and like u say fix what can be fixed. Producing NFL players is not what we play for, I prefer a cohesive team that 200 NFL bound players. Teams win games not players. KState was a great let down, but they have are very good they just beat Oklahoma!!! at home. Lets start by enjoying some wins and looking forward to more to come. What I enjoyed the most is the "family" atmosphere Golden created and this kids needed more than anything. Lets be patient with this project and see what happened it can't be worst that is been my friend.

I'm pleased and excited about the strength, motivation and stamina this team, yes TEAM, has shown this year. Such a big difference now from the teams of recent years. No longer seem to be tired and wore out at games end, fight from opening kickoff to game over. These kids are doing great for the experience level and relative ages of the players. There is room for improvement, yes but look and appreciate what has already improved. It's GREAT to be a 'CANE!!!!

Any one know if and when we get Curtis Porter beac?

Walt you got it...

Gallo you thrive on stimulating discussion with a slant to the glory days of Butch (which we all acknowledge) but not once in your post have you acknowledged Coach G for bringing the team to where they are, 3-1...criticize, criticize..
Seems to me you must be an agent for Davis or one of those guys who have a propensity to stir things up for the sake of discourse..I repeat go cheer for UConn because the process continues whether you like it or not at the 'U' with Coach G and his group at the helm..

Hard to admit the process is beating your trivial thoughts, because if I remember you confirmed "ad infinitum" that Miami would loose to Tech..go check.

Well we WON a****** and you have been determined to temper that win with a lot of garbage...how could anyone in their right mind compare Clemson, FSU, with Miami playing 15 freshmen vs. juniors and seniors with years of College experience..it's apples and oranges..no go..you are in left field, go play baseball..

The number of players in the NFL had NOTHING to do with a signature win when EVERYONE said we would loose to GT.
You need to go back and read your posts chickenlittle.

Coach Golden not only comforted but if you look at the event was aware enough to be holding Malcom and telling the staff where to go, and assisting them, while comforting Davis...Very moving..

dbc I like your post . You called it...if I was a prospect and saw that, even as a parent, it was touching..
That is the philosophy of 'Cane football..look out for your family and be with them through thick and thin..it is a PROCESS..Congratulations team..
Go 'Canes Always
The 'Canes are real..Gallo I am not sure.
