UM season-ticket sales surge -- yes, Gators helped for sure. But winning is potion that will help most

In my MiamiHerald.com story today -- click here -- I wrote how UM's season-ticket sales have gone from 22,800 in 2012 to nearly the 30,000 expected to be sold by the Gators game Sept. 7.

It's "the largest year-to-year record growth we have on record,'' according to Miami associate athletic director for communications and marketing Chris Freet.

UM Athletic Director Blake James told me he realizes some of that surge has to do with the Gators game during a season when UM travels to FSU.

However, we all know how empty Sun Life Stadium was much, if not most, of the time last season. It had to be embarrassing for the program.

Bottom line is if the Hurricanes win, fans will begin to fill more seats. I'm curious to see, however, how many folks show up to the 8 p.m. opener against FAU Aug. 30th, a week from Friday. UM said it's too early to give an estimate, which tells me there are a LOT more tickets to be sold. If I'm wrong about the LOT more, somebody let me know.

If you're a fan, Friday night opener sounds fun to me. You get the whole weekend to recover and chill.

Anyone out there besides season-ticket holders going to the opener? And if you are a season-ticket holder, did Florida game have anything to do with your purchase?

Have a great weekend. I'm headed out of state to my nephew's wedding this weekend. Hello, NCAA? Anyone home?

Cual, I will call him a less than stellar (not "bad" but not noticably good,either) gameday coach. Define gameday coach. Someone who adjusts to what the opposing team does. Haven't seen that.

BEST gameday move he made, was hugging Malcolm Lewis.
The fact that he did not act as horribly with timeouts as Shannon was improvement, but that alone does not make him a great gameday coach.

However, Tallycane, Dogging Shannon for declining is valid, just like it is valid to dog Donofrio for declining. Just the results, in BOTH cases.

Randy Shannon is STILL getting paid by Miami Truthful. Do me a favor dog, go look up some of the BIG name coaches Shannon tried to hire as assistants but was told NO by your beloved administrators! I dare U!!!

Randy Shannon is NOT still getting paid by Miami. Look at his lawsuit and the settlement terms. Already tried to see who Randy "tried" to hire.. Marc Trestman doesn't come up any where (except for in cAlvin's posts on the M.H.) and Dirk Koetter doesn't come up any where either (except for in cAlvin's posts on the M.H.). If you're taking cAlvin's word for it then I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you!
Like Koetter would have left his Offensive Coordinator job with the Jaguars in the NFL to work as an Offensive Coordinator in college. He may like Shannon but no way does somebody take a pay cut AND a demotion on purpose.

Is D corch still at UM?

Tubmancane.. the last 10 years, you must have been reading cAlvin's post from a different site. He has referred to whites (and a bi-racial Zimmerman) as crackers (craka's) and to some whites as "devils". Why do you ask him what he meant when said that at least Coach Hurlie Brown has credibility from a SOCIAL STANDPOINT in regards the current coaching staff.

Breaking news on ESPN......sanction announcement at 430

The problem was in shannons last year fans put unrealistic expectations on that team. He had put together a descent team but the offensive line was still young and not ready. Doesn't matter how many skill players you have with no line the team is going nowhere. golden looks just as bad on game day as Shannon. No adjustments on defense is glaringly obvious and golden has not done any better with timeouts. Golden may talk to the media a little better but he has direct quotes where he isn't using proper English either. Golden looks the part though and that's about it.

Let me guess, truest cane, your sources are still predicting the death penalty, right?

Haven't heard an actual person (so not Calvin/HarrietTubman/Gallo) criticize Golden for player development, being a bad game day coach, or being bad with the fans and media.

Coach goldie has been good at 1 out of the 4 you just listed, shannon was better than coach goldie at 3 out of those same 4, you have to add in, when was shannon ever bad to th fans, he always said the fans have a right to voice their dissappointment if he's not doing as good as they want him too. Many people got bent out of shape with shannon just because he wouldn't reveal what type of injuries players had, so whenever he listed upper/lower extremity on the injury report, you would've thought those players were kids of alot of people who posted on blogs, cause they got offended by that as if it's their business to know and like they're suppose to know.

You don't need all that extra info to gamble. Gameday coaching, shannon was better than coach goldie, people cry about time-out situations and what not but haven't said anything about coach goldie messing up time-outs, hell in his first game coaching here he jacked with the time against the turtles and several other games as well, but the blind faith most of the ones in here have for goldie blinds them to the facts. I saw several games where shannon made adjustments and the talent just wasn't there to do anything about it. For instance, since most like to go back to that year, let's go back to 2007, when we played Oklahoma, many people that don't know football will try and act like shannon couldn't coach based on that game.

But what many people don't like to admit or look at, the game wasn't that far ahead at halftime and had it not been for javariss james fumble that went for a touchdown, the halftime score would've only been 14-7 or maybe 17-7. The second half we came out, shut-down bradford, might of sacked, than kp came up and forced a fumble and we were right back in the game, what took us out of that game and where we lost momentum was of course because of fluzzi panuzzi and the never-special teams(unless it was a trick play fluzzi was money).

Than if you also take away that touchdown they called where randy phillips stripped malcom kelly before he crossed the goal-line the game is even closer that, and that was against an actual team that ended up playing for the national title.

Player developement, under shannon we had more players go in draft again than in his 1st 2 years, several of the guys shannon brought in, are pro's now. Defensively, if shannon wasn't developing players, well who was the d-co when we won the national title and after that, how many first round players from the defensive side of the ball went in the 1st round on all 3 levels(d-line, linebakcer & db's) of the defense while shannon was the d-co. Than when he became headcoach, our players started getting drafted again, shannon is the one who brought the talent level back up, those are the facts.

As i stated the other day, under coach goldie, more players have regressed under him than you can point to of those who have progressed. I don't like saying this but this defensive scheme we're running, it's going to be hard to get guys to become 1st rounders at the cb position. The safties and defensive ends have the best chance, the linebackers, if they have the size to be the hybrid kind, they'll have a chance, but with the way we're running this scheme as of now, it's not going to highlight alot of individuals.

How many high round draft pick corner's were taken in the draft under coach goldie when he was the d-co at uVA. Again, brandon harris rolled out for a reason and being a second rounder wasn't a bad move. shannon like on a few of us said when most people were saying the 2010 class was shannon's worst class, only a few of us said it was his best class, why, because it was his most physical class. This is why i kept laughing at all these bozo sights who kept saying the 2008 class was the #1 ranked class, and i kept asking, how are they coming up with that ranking with a class full of linebackers and widereceivers.

That 2010 class has produced one of the best o-lines in UM history, especially had they been with art kehoe from the jump, a guy like seantrel would've been producing more consistently earlier because art kehoe unlike jeff stoutland doesn't care about what year you're in, or counting starts, if you're producing you're playing be it freshman, True or redshirt, if you can ball you going in. I think kehoe is a credible source when it comes to o-linemen, he's saying the same thing.

shannon definitely said the same thing before he left, so in shannon's 3rd year he was actually getting better on where to focus on getting athletes. The o-line will be improved for sure. Only 1 player i can say progressed under coach goldie at a high level and that touchdown tommy streeter, after him, i can't think of anyone myself!

It's simple:

two games above .500 and the worst defense in school history. we'll se if "the process" pays off September 7th, a MUST WIN game, if your standard is a return to national prominence.

This man trust his own eye's, we have many games where we can show where shannon made adjustments, alot of these guys in here who first off can't talk football, wouldn't know and effective adjustment just by watching a game. The one thing nobody can be stupid enuff on here ever say is shannon doesn't know defense, if he didn't know nothing else, he knew how to stop teams but he also let the coordinators coordinate. shannon has been in charge of the best defense in the nation, btu people want to say "it was butch davis players" well how come schiano's coached defenses weren't #1, shannon won the broyles assistant coach award, why, for being the top assistant coach. Everywhere shannon has coached he made a difference. People trying to say shannon is only a linebackers coach now, so what, that's one of the positions he efinitely coaches at a high level, see zach thomas, ken norton, jack del rio, derrick burgess and several others he's coahced although they were his peers.

So on those merits alone, when goldie was a position coach or coordinator, he never had a top unit, shannon has coached in the nfl, he has a way better resume than coach goldie only hopes to get, but coach goldie is hungy though.

It's simple:

two games above .500 and the worst defense in school history. we'll se if "the process" pays off September 7th, a MUST WIN game, if your standard is a return to national prominence.

ROFL, make it plain!

Calvin, you can't think of another player that progressed under Golden?

Jacory Harris
2010 148-270, 54.8% for 1793 yards, 14 TDs and 15 INTs for a 116.6 QB rating, and 29 runs for 27 yards.

2011 195-300, 65.0% for 2486 yards, 20TDs and 9 INTs for a 150.6 QB rating, and 53 runs for 88 yards.

His best year was still under shannon in 2009. 9 & 3 regular season can't be discounted either plus the stats.

*2009 Miami (FL)
Comps 242 Atts406 comp% 59.6 yards 3352 Td's24 picks17 qb rating=140.1

minus the picks after that hand was injured with a bozo oc's and his qb rating would've been thru the roof. Which bring me to another point, jim tressel didn't take jacory's heart, mark nipple did that by having that man under center, with to many empty back sets. After j70 got injured, by the time he got to the wisconsin game is when he became gun shy for the first time. The next year after coming off of that kind of surgery, he didn't want that to happen to him again. Having matt pipho as your starting right tackle(thank you jeff stoutland) will do that to a qb.

calvin you are a TOOL. A clown. You should change your name to Clarence the clown. That clown on the howdy dooody show

Jacorry Harris was horr. wait for it... ible!

Ok OK he wasnt- so why did he not get a roster spot in the NFL? You still blaming the thumb? Or coach Nipple (a you dsrespectfully refer him)?

Or... why not blame Patrick Nix?

No. maybe you should blame Robert Marve for no mentoring him right,

Fact is he is not even third string in a middle of the pack Canadian football team.

even with all that space on them canadian fields he still s-ks a55.

A product of Shannon and his love for the Northwestern Bulls of 2008.

What a joke.

Kevin Olsen will break all of Jacorrys records so that the nameJacorry Harris shall be forgeooten from Hurricane memory. Kinda like Ryan Crudup..................

UM 54
FAu 13

LOL, none of Floater Harris picks were his fault. They were all due to injury or were Mr. Whipple's fault, right Lady Calvina. You are a racist pig.

Notice coaches that Lady Calvin demeans constantly, eg, Stoutland, get promoted. His boy marble mouth gets a double demo from hc to position coach, but he's great.

120 teams in a cutthroat big business, RS is great and available and no one will hire him for dc, much less hc. Time to pull out that well worn race card.

ROFL, what up nash, now coach goldie got us being seen as runners, lol. People saying "it was a smart move by coach goldie knowing we'll have a 1st time starting qb going in" What they're really saying is, coach goldie don't have the ballz or confidence in his own coaching abilities to feel like he can win a game like that.

If they mean smart because if you're in shoot-outs with 2 & 10, 4 & 8 teams & 7 & 6 squads, no need in going somewhere embarrassing yourself. The one thing that's going to get old and old quick on the national stage is, you can't be at Miami for over 2 years and make it seem like the talent is not there when you have access to the best talent nationwide.

I'll say this again, coach goldie will be the 1st headcoach at Miami since before howard schnelly not to win a national championship while being a headcoach somewhere else before he got here if he doesn't step it up. All the headcoaches that came here who had headcoaching experience since howard won a national championship. goldie coming in like he has championship plan, organization can only take you so far, it's not about who plans the best, it's about who's able to navigate once those same plans get altered.

Coach goldie is so regimented on being organized and following some script to the tee, it's easy to see why he can't make gameday adjustments.

LOL, Lady Calvina can you come up with a smaller needle to thread thru to protect your boy Randy. He didn't win s hit. He's the only guy no longer a miami HC to not win post Howard S. Get over it.

none of you know exactly why UM turned LSu down. However, put yourself in UM's position with the NCAA gestapo playing with their livelihood the last 3 years.

Does LSU have the NCAA breathing odwn its neck?
HAs LSu had the 3 recruiting cycles affected by teh NCAA?

Um had to rebuild. Cant do it playing LSU FSU UF ANd an ACC schedule.

Now you all know why 99% of the SEC does that. LSU, Alabama, and sometimes Auburn excepted.

But you dooshbags making fun of Miami turning down LSu once forget that Miami has played OOC and OO state over and over and over:

Oklahoma
Ohio State
Notre Dame
Kansas State
Next is Nebraska

so please STFU.

What up nash, but do me a favor too, take this post to our boy Hurriphin and ask him what's wrong this guy, this mofo trying to get struck by lighting, how you gone try and talk all spiritual and than come round the 1:43sec mark he on something else that quick, lol:

http://youtu.be/9J_HcsdHzZQ

Gators haven't played a non-conference team out of state in 25 years.

The poster child of sched ducking.

the end.

Here's a trivial pursuit question here, who's schedule is this, i'll give the excuse makers a hint, we beat them last year, why they not scared:

Sat, Aug 31 at (1) Alabama 5:30 pm

Calvin can you back that up?

If you know you're playing championship defense, you'll never worry about playing nobody and will go anywhere anytime. clown 117th is holding the program back, so when does coach goldie expect to get back on the national stage, coach goldie trying to hide UM like he's still at temple.

It's not a good look to keep hearing a coach talk about elevating the competition in practice but when it comes time for him to elevate himself and coach against another top notch headcoach, coach goldie is running from competition, this can't be hidden. People can point to whoever else schedule they want to, eve nreal gaytor fans know that's not the Miami way to run from anybody Why come in saying "Uphold the Legacy", and this guy is pulling a stunt like that, lol.

No no Calvin. I mean that a_s.

Goldie wouldn't be "running from competition" would he??

Most of you muggs on here said Dillard was running from competition when he transferred but when the Mac staff turned down the opportunity to play lsu in Texas and "strengthen the brand" y'all hollered good move.

Miami plays an aggressive out of conference schedule relative to most teams. Gayturds never play nd, ok,neb etc,

They play the Noles because the legislature compelled it.

Get over it Lady calvina, woos.

Goldie wouldn't be "running from competition" would he??

How a headcoach, who would be going into his 4th year at UM but 9th year as a headcoach, shying away from competition is beyond me. A Miami/lsu game would take the ratings thru the roof, at least before the game, but once the game starts and people start seeing us playing prevent defense they question will come up quick, this must be Miami of ohio playing defense like this!

Cal I know one damn thing, if we show up vs fau showing corner 15 yards off of db's well know nothing has changed with their 'efensive philosophy!

Lol

Btw after Harriet Tubman Canes said he wasn't Cav I knew it was Zakkee lol

Florida’s game at Miami on Sept. 7 will be the 55th meeting between the in-state rivals.

It could be a long time before we see No. 56.

Barring a meeting in a bowl game or the impending four-team college football playoff, this season’s matchup is the last between the Gators and Hurricanes for the foreseeable future. Officials at both schools have said there have been no talks about resuming the series and it will be several years before the Gators would be able to consider another meeting with the Hurricanes because of the uncertainty surrounding the SEC’s future scheduling.

"There’s nothing in the books for the future," said Chip Howard, UF’s executive associate athletics director for internal affairs. "I won’t say it won’t ever happen. You never know."

This season’s matchup with Miami is the second game of a home-and-home series that began in 2008 in Gainesville. It’s a departure from Florida’s normal scheduling formula. UF prefers to play smaller FBS or FCS schools in the early non-conference games and play a Division I-AA school in the week between the final SEC game and the annual Florida State game.

That formula might need to be adjusted in the future, though, depending on whether the SEC decides to add a ninth conference game. The league is expected to make that decision in time for the 2016 schedule, but Howard said the Gators have already lined up non-conference opponents through that season. In other words, the Gators aren’t anxious to meet up with Miami unless forced to do so in the playoff format or a bowl game.

With rival Florida State on the schedule each year, Howard said it would be tough for UF to justify adding Miami on a semi-regular basis. However, he did add that the school understands that fans want to see better games.

It’s a shame the series, which Miami leads 28-26, is ending. The schools played every year from 1938-1987 (except for 1943, when UF didn’t field a team) and there have been some memorable moments from those games, including:

• In 1971, Florida’s defensive players dropped on the field to allow Miami to score a touchdown late in the game so Gators quarterback John Reaves could get back on the field and set the NCAA career passing record. That became known as the Florida Flop that is widely considered one of the most unsportsmanlike acts in NCAA history.

• Florida fans pelted Miami players with oranges late in the Hurricanes’ 31-7 victory in 1980. Miami coach Howard Schnellenberger got so mad he called a timeout to kick a 25-yard field goal on the game’s final play.

• In 2003, former UF quarterback Brock Berlin rallied Miami from a 33-10 deficit to a 38-33 victory by leading the Hurricanes to four touchdowns in a 17-minute span in the third and fourth quarters.

Miami has won seven of the last night meetings, with the only UF victory in that span coming 2008. That last meeting ended with some hard feelings on the part of Miami coach Randy Shannon, who was upset that UF coach Urban Meyer elected to kick a field goal with 25 seconds to play and the Gators leading 23-3 against a freshmen laden Miami team.

The Hurricanes got some payback three years later, however. In 2011, the UF student government approved a resolution asking Miami to return the Seminole War Canoe Trophy, which is a canoe carved from a 200-year-old cypress tree and given to the winner of the game between the schools since 1955, since the Gators had won the most recent game. The resolution was sent to the head of Miami’s student body. It was passed along until it reached Brandon Mitchell, then the president of Miami’s Category 5 spirit club, who said the Gators don’t deserve the trophy -- which quit being passed between the schools in the 1970s -- because the schools no longer play annually.

His response, according to the Miami Herald: "The War Canoe was intended for the yearly rivalry and ... Miami won the final game of that yearly rivalry that the Gators quit."

they ain't going nowhere till they get a defensive co-ordinator- last year's Defense was horrible- what's to make it better this year?
just opinion

Is Jontavious Carter still on the team? He's not listed on the UM roster.

Maybe Blake James and who ever else believe that ticket sales are up because they are playing the gators.Should be working forUF and not employed by UM. Sales are up because of Duke Johnson and the rest of the offense.Remember defense win games.Offense put fans in the stands.

"Give me J12 all-day over that overrated Dorsey.

One of the dumbest things I've read on this blog. And that's saying something.

no mas arty

let it be

The Hurricane fan named "Ron Zook" is a gutless coward.

When Ryan Braun go off on a technicality, Zook came in here and went in the offensive, attacking anyone who dared to point out the obvious. That Braun is a dirty cheating drug abuser who essentially stole from other baseball players.

Is there any chance, now that Braun has admitted what a POS he is, that Zook will come in and apologize? Of course not. He is a gutless coward just like Braun.

Stole from other baseball players? More like he is just the one who got caught. PEDS are being used in all sports, get over it.

Good article on ESPN about the U trying to return to prominence

One important stat about that #1 2007-2008 class: they went 39-23.

The U will be back. 09/07 is the first step.

Recruiting is back in place
Coaching is relatively stable,
Golden is going after local kids(not just northwestern)

Fans like homeruns

Businesses cater to fans

players are employed to help businesses succeed

Players take PEDs to hit more HRs to make their paychecks fatter, their employers successful and ultimately, fans happy.

Sybil, since the Herald turns these articles over so slowly these days and this is more boring than ever, can't you change it up a bit?

Put Harriet back to sleep and rewind Galloinda. Or roll out another name and repeat Sybil dribble. Don't forget to refer to the new name as an independent thinker.

none of you know exactly why UM turned LSu down.

Um had to rebuild. Cant do it playing LSU FSU UF ANd an ACC schedule.


excUse me? excUse U!

can you say delusional
can you say cowardly
can't rebuild while playing an ACC schedule?
Really??????????????
the worst conference in college football and you can't handle that?
you just validated the handle of
my man ACC SUCKS AND THE CANES CANT COMPETE
what he says is so true
why did UM duck LSU?
Golden is afraid of high level competition
sUcks to be U


Jontavious Carter moving on.

Galloinda get the list out.

I thought he might get some pt in the future, but has been passed up by so many, I guess he concluded he'd be better off going elsewhere.

Gameday coaching, 2011 coach goldie, trying to show some ballz in blacksburgh, calls for a fake fieldgoal against v-tech, not that it was a bad call, but was it necessary to try and run and option with lil whipple and jake wieclaw.

Gameday coaching, only down by 3 in 2012 against Fsu, comes out at halftime and calls for an onside-kick, lol, was that necessary. I was just glad we didn't recover it cause we would've gotten all hype and than probably not have even gotten a 1st down and would've still had to punt!

"Yellow belly ibis" and the "canetrash LOOSER" (All one and the same). YOWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Please hang around this blog until the Gators game, so we can have some fun with your wit and read your piece re the loss of the vaunted Gayturds.

Guarantee that you should write a mea culpa at the end of the game. That is a "throwdown" challenge!!.

Heard a really good Canesport interview with coach Kehoe.
Lady calvina should listen to Coach K who has the most rings, and knows of what he speaks.

"Linder is looking good. Seantrel has an appearance and attitude change, Bush is playing hard.Stephen has stepped up as a leader. Our 2 deep barring injuries should be able to play hard, consistent, and at a high level." "One of the best prepared teams he has been around at the 'U'."

The Golden train has left the station if you are not on board then you are out and not needed.

Lady calvina the 'Cane train has left the station. Get on board or get off. Your criticsm, and illogical biased thinking is not needed.
Comparing Coaches in different game scenarios is ludicrous because no two Coaches in any given situation would make the same call.

You are stating fact as ideas that YOU have formulated.
You are not in Coach G's head, and he would not want you there.
Go 'Canes

!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Einstein!! It's a bloody NO BRAINER that Miami will have a Top 20 rated offense this season. hUh So what's your point. dUh

The question is how much the Hurricane's defense will improve in 2013.

And dig this dude. That Cane train isn't going very far, and won't reach Charlotte. If the defense doesn't come through this season!! Eh. What say.

As for the criticism angle. ANY defensive coordinator whom manages a NO.116 team defense is bloody well subject, to intense scrutiny and what not!!

And don't you ever forget that!!!

I don't think anybody is arguing that Onodrio shouldn't be criticized... He should be fired. The team and defense in particular, is stronger, faster, and bigger so this is it for Onofrio.

A lot of yappin' (still)on this blog from fans of the Gator.

Can you accomplish something first?...Maybe win a division for the first time in 4 years...or beat a ranked team in a bowl???

Geez...we are who we are, period. I can take the yappin' and flappin' from the Alabama fans, they've earned that. But these Florida dudes (or chicks)??

How are they exprcted to have their comments taken seriously?

Funny.


Ermon Lane looked average yesterday (TV game...ESPN-U)...no explosiveness or elusiveness. Miami may have dodged a bullet, of course it was only one game, but all the same, not good at all!

Every player who does not choose the U looks very average to me. As been said here many times before, if you do not choose the U then you are afraid of competition and a bum. That's how it goes.
Get on board the Golden Train, we are unstoppable, and our record is proof.
