Rematch with FSU? Al Golden says Canes "don't even live in that world" right now

Considering how bad the Hurricanes looked in the second half against Florida State last Saturday one might imagine players and coaches are dying for another shot at the Seminoles in the ACC Championship game.

UM coach Al Golden made it clear Wednesday during his 10-minute weekly meeting with the press in the ACC Teleconference the only thing on his mind and his players' minds is beating Virginia Tech on Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium.

When asked if he saw something that gives the Canes hope in a potential rematch with FSU, Golden said: ""Again, I'm not even -- we don't even live in that world."

"Our world right now is going against a defense that has 28 sacks and keeping opponents to 29 percent on third down and 4.1 yards a play and 16.9 points per game. Trust me, that's the world we live in. I don't want to own any quotes about a rematch or anything like that. You guys can speculate on that. In terms of our mentality, we're going to have our hands super full on Saturday with a Virginia Tech team that has obviously been the benchmark here in the Coastal Division and will give us everything we can handle. So that's where our minds are at right now."

What else was Golden talking about Wednesday?

> What he see from the Hokies' defensive front: "They're powerful. They're athletic, work in concert with each other. They pursue and they're aggressive. [Defensive tackles Luther] Maddy and [Derrick] Hopkins, those two collectively working together. [Ends James] Gayle, [J.R.] Collins, [Dadi] Nichoas and then the linebackers with [Jack] Tyler leading the way, having a great season. They're deep. They roll guys in. Very good unit."

> The Hokies won their first three ACC games and didn't turn the ball over once. But in their losses to Duke and Boston College the last two weeks they turned over four times each.

"It's the same issue we had," Golden said. "You have to do whatever you can to try and resolve it, emphasize it in practice, protecting the ball. Maybe it's helping the quarterback make different decisions, things of that nature or changing the way you practice. [The turnovers were] certainly like ours were -- self-inflicted, unforced errors in a way. We went through the same thing so it's really important we protect the ball this week."

> Golden said he doesn't really have a long-term prognosis for running back Duke Johnson following ankle surgery Monday night, but made it clear there's probably no way he will be back in time for a bowl game.

"I don't really have the long-term prognosis other than everything went really well and I'm going to see him today," Golden said. "He'll be back on campus either [Thursday] night or Friday morning. We're just trying to get him back, get him integrated back with academics, treatment and getting him in the weight room. Again, these days they get the guys going with treatment and rehab and things of that natue. He's doing well. He's at home. I'll get a chance to visit with him later."

> Will Dallas Crawford be the workhorse with Johnson out or will it be more of a committee approach?

"They're going to earn their reps in practice," Golden said. "We're going to evaluate those guys every day in practice and depending on what we're asking them to do we're going to see all three of those running backs and probably all three by the end of the first quarter. I don't think there's any question we'll see more of them. But certainly Dallas right now -- he was No. 2 and then No. 1 -- has demonstrated he can carry the load. Again, a lot of its going to depend on the play-calling, what groupings are in there, the flow of the game."

> Could Corn Elder be moved from cornerback to running back to add depth?

"We made that decision with [freshman] Walter Tucker a month ago that Walter would be the next running back if we need him," Golden said. "So Walter has the ability to play fullback or running back at 225 points. Obviously he's been playing a lot for us on special teams. That decision has already been made. Corn will stay at corner."

> How would Golden characterize Dallas as a running back?

"No. 1 he's got a low center of gravity and strength. He's probably 197, 198 pounds. So big legs, low center of gravity. He does utilize the spin move occasionally. He does have an excellent lateral cut and ability to start and stop. Some of those characteristics are the same as [Duke Johnson]. I would just say he's a little bit more powerful in terms of being able to drop his pads because of his leg strength. Those are the things he does really well. Like Randy, we can put him out, throw him a screen or line him up in the slot because he does catch the ball really well."

> Where does FSU rank among the four top unbeaten BCS teams?

"I know your guys' job is to debate all that and that's probably what creates the interest all year long. I think it's going to shake out. It's hard to imagine they're not the best team or one of the top two or three teams in the country. Those two wins were very impressive. Just seeing them up close. They're deep at every position. They have very few weaknesses. They execute it at a high level and they have a quarterback that's playing as good as anybody in the country. Because of that they certainly staking their claim or at least an argument to be that [top team]. I think it will all shake out in the end."

Even with all the injuries, the Gators would beat U head to head right now.

Let me tell you what U know, you're a loser, you lost to us, and you're a bum, that's what U know. Chew on that for a while, and then go clean up the locker room water boy, lol.

Even without the injuries, Furman would pound you Gatr Trash.

What happened to "woulda, coulda, shoulda"? The scoreboard speaks for itself. The Canes beat the Gators at full strength. Now you think the Gators, who are a shadow of the team they were in Week 2 due to all of the injuries, would beat the Canes? The Gators will have their hands full with Vandy this weekend and, if they lose, probably won't make it to a bowl this year. They are the fourth best team in the state right now.

Even though the U has been down and hasn't any first rounders and a while, it has still managed to produce two current starting NFL running backs (Miller and James),by far the best TE in the NFL (Graham), and numerous other starters. They had 8 players selected in the 2011 draft with many of them currently enjoying successful careers. They had 6 players drafted in 2012. Even in the worst of times, Miami still produces NFL players.

Just more proof the morons who try and put shannon down and lie on em by saying he didn't leave coach goldie anything, the facts remain, shannon built the talent level back up. In fact under shannon, brandon harris a db was selected in the 2nd round, had he stayed under coach goldie & the 500 club,(in fact he might've stayed until they showed brandon the escort service scheme) his draft status would've went souF. So we'll see how high db's start getting drafted under this regime. p.w. is doing a solid job coaching the db's but i'd like to see him coach the db's in a more aggressive scheme.

One things for sure, it seems almost guaranteed we're going to get at least 2 picks every game now.


Harriet TUBMAN, i'm starting to think alot of these guys got amnesia, do you see what they're saying "all we had to do against winston" was keep him in the pocket and we didn't get off the field on 3rd downs, well wasn't that the same thing that happened against wake forest & Unc.

If we go undefeated the rest of the year with these schemes i'd be real surprised. Not because we don't have the talent. Last year coach goldie clearly said "Fsu, they're a little bit ahead of us right now, but i wouldn't trade this locker room for anything" So if last year we lost to Fsu 33 to 20 and coach goldie said that, well this year we lost 41 to 14 so why did the gap widen, no garbage td and we still have thee 500 club making the escort service calls.

I'll say this again, nothing about coach goldie or the 500 club says championship or even national championship. This guy was crying in front of the team after the news broke about the sanctions, lol. The players were looking at him like, WTH is wrong with him, did somebody get shot that we know!

Cal, if win its Golden and D'No. if we lose its the lack of horsies.

I'm tired of pointing out the hypocrisy and excuses for the self-subjugating behavior of our administration.

Storm, why haven't U taken your own advice and leave for that blog U keep promoting?

Good points jsy, our coaching and schemes are our biggest sanction.

Remember to keep u the good fight, we've already defeated one from the left coast and sent him packing, this is easy work. These madno's can't think for themselves. You know that saying, 85% are controlled by the 10%, but they're 5% who're not controlled by nobody. I can see the goldie sheeple crying if this win nothing yet coach rolled out, they don't see he helped manufacter and front load the schedule this year with easy games so the record and stats could look decent and as they erode as we get down the stretch, we're keep hearing coach goldie say, we're rebuilding, but he'll put the onus of the drop on the 2nd & 3rd units by seasons end if things don't go right, because if he makes a mistake and say, the team wore down in the 2nd half of the season, than that'll be a red flag for you know what, stay tuned.

LMAO. Why do you guys even say you're U fans? Why even back the team? I mean EVERY SINGLE POST, is ALWAYS negative, you have NOTHING positive to say EVER. You guys would never make it in sales that's for sure. You're like a cackle of old ladies who get together to play canasta once a week, and just beeetch about the sun, the moon, the rain, the heat, the snow, the air, and oh yeah, the U. Why not just blow your freaking brains out n end it right now, and put yourselves out of your misery, and our misery too, lol. You fat, single, coach potatoes are really annoying.

Ooop's meant 'couch'.

HTC:

Never said i was leaving, only giving Canes fans more options when they get tired of the stupidity on display here.

And about the Canes: you are talking about a team that averages out at the Sophomore level on both sides of the ball. No question Steve Morris is showing his limits or regression as QB and is the weak link on the entire team right now.

And so how is that the Coaching game plan's fault?

It's pretty clear you Canes haters and Golden haters will constantly shift your arguments to fit your opinions.

The rest of us use facts to to create our opinions. But hey, we try to live in a rational world.

Enjoy your delusional one...

cane trash, so the SEC has 2 good teams. That makes a "tough" conference? UNC losing to East Carolina shows they suck, that is just one of many examples. But magically, when UNC plays scUM, that is somehow transformed into a "tough" ACC battle.

Worry more about the burning toxic waste dump that is cane Trash football than the SEC. You may, however, not be happy with what you find.

Next year? More of the same without Morris and the loss of several of your best defenders. Although Morris sucks as well.

Maybe instead of "we are back" you may want to chant "2015" "2015."

It is great, to be, a scUM retard."

BWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAH. ACC suuuuucks. We can't compete, ROI is in he negative.

"UM loses a starter: Duke out for season after , broken ankle."
When we lose again we have an excUse
I feel bad for Duke. I don't feel bad for the maggots like sidcane who thought their sh*t didn't stink for far too long.

You are now paying for the sins, and arrogance, of the bandwagon disgusting cane fandom. I couldn't be happier and don't think this ends with the end of this season. Next year will be more of the same.

Will watch for all the empty seats at this weekend's game. Same old, bring out the tarps agin.

A myth, just like the one that says we got swag, or "we are back". meaningless slogans,Yikes.

If only Golden were black, he'd be great. How pathetic. Coach Shannon did a GREAT job with our student athletes, but not so much our football squad. Thankful that Golden stayed when he could've easily left during the investigation. D'Onofrio needs to go, I'll agree there as I can't stand our defensive philosophy, but I want to see our guys continue to build our depth and competing. No matter who leads us though, it's still all about that U! Go Canes.

"Rematch with FSU? Al Golden says Canes "don't even live in that world" right now"
Hey we got our hands full with the traditional ACC and national powerhouses like VaTech, Duke, Virginia and Pitt.
What a gaunlet that is. Four national powers and feared teams. We will be lucky to split the last four.


This 41-14 character is hilarious. Thought I told u to go clean the locker room up? You're a LOSER, you LOST to us, and you'll LOSE to FSU.

SEC, SEC, SEC, tell that to Florida and Georgia; both of whom will finish with 2 losses to ACC schools! Lets' SEC so far in 2013:

vs ACC (2-2)
vs AAC (2-2)
vs Big 10 (1-0)
vs Big 12 (2-1)
vs PAC 12 (1-1)

Overall (8-6) - Hardly what I call DOMINANT!!

Regarding this "Fire D'Onofrio" stuff:

Let's bring some facts and rationality into the conversation:

Aug 30 - W vs. Fla Atlantic, 34-6
Sep 7 - W vs. Florida, 21-16
Sep 14 - Open
Sep 21 - W vs. Savannah State, 77-7
Sep 28 - W at So Florida, 49-21
Oct 5 - W vs. Georgia Tech, 45-30
Oct 12 - Open
Oct 17 - W at North Carolina, 27-23
Oct 26 - W vs. Wake Forest, 24-21
Nov 2 - L at Florida State, 14-41

Except for GT and FSU, Canes have held down all their opponents Offensive production pretty well. Look at each team's O production in their other games and you'll see they average more points against their opponents (except UF which lost their starting QB and RB).

Again, FSU is who they are. A damn good team. A team full of players who might have gone to UM had it not been for the NCAA scare tactics.

To the me, the problem for the Canes is NOT defense. It's OFFENSE.

And the primary cause of that problem? Steve Morris looks like he's worse than he was in 2012.

Is it the ankle injury? Probably

Is he just fading in mental skills? Possibly

Is it the NEW offensive coordinator and new game plan he has to learn? Probably

Is Coley's game plan a problem? Can't tell. We had an awesome running game with Duke. We have 2 great, big Tight Ends who almost never get used, and we have a good stable of receivers. What we can't know is if Morris is ignoring his TE on reads.

Where are the short passes? I don't know. While every team uses the 5-10yrd outs and inside slants to pick up easy yards, we seem to have no such plays. Is this Coley's fault or Morris? Don't know unless we could see their game book.

All i know is this: we can't just have an offense that alternates between run and throwing bombs the rest of the year.

What are U Cola? You're doing the same thing we're doing...blogging.

Everything U say is delusional and slurping. If I'm a hater then you're a lover. I'm not really even a hater, i'm just not a sucka (for BS).

In love with mediocrity and if U have so much to do--then why are U here saying the same exact nut ish every single day?

Every revolution begins with verbal communication--thats a fact and i know we aint about to win any NCs in the near future with AG and D'No. I don't need to stuck in a bottomless pit of hope, and waiting like i have for the last 10 seasons already while our administration and Board counts our hope ca$h.

Coker = Shannon = Golden. How many OCs, DCs, ADs, transfers, bowl loses, and whats our record the last 10 seasons?

The difference between me and U is I know that these occurrences are not happenstance and U believe that we have been unfortunate for 10 years and despite being smack dead in the middle of the most fertile recruiting talent region for football in the entire world.

With this fact yall continue to reference a lack of horsies instead of the obvious ineptitude of coaching.

The difference between me and U is I've witnessed enough of the budget induced mediocrity while the test mice want to try it one more time, like crackheads. As if they'll be a different result--thats defined as insanity--and yea, I aint that.

It misery, I'm cool. Miserable is living a lie and being hoodwinked despite people attempting to help U out your addiction to faux progress.

Malcolm X said, "pulling a 10 inch knife, 6 inches out a person's back aint progress, pulling it all of the way out and helping it healing back to where it was is".

AG and D'No are that 4 inches...and thats not progress to me--thats the difference between us.

I don't have to respect a self-inflicted "process". If someone was truly f'ing with or oppressing the Canes and we were sincerely hampered by it--I'd be on the front lines of the beef.

But this annual hopefest and accountability dodging for those with the most power and ability to influence is not my cup of tea. U hold that.

Butch left because the administration didn't value football enough to pay him for his rebuild and ever since Coker's auto-pilot win, the administration has been full steam ahead with their "get more for less" monetary funding approach for this football program--thus the inadequate, "learn on the job" hires of Coker, RS and now Golden and the lack of institutional continuity and oversight that has ensued since.

For these reasons I can't buy what y'all 2nd hand peddling me. If yall don't see the jux or rigged game being played, than so be it. Stay in line and lost.

Cola, its because its all they have left....that and a1-3 finish to the season if they are lucky.and that guy above is an idiot thinking they can beat us now...How about this trolls, win some freakin games and try to get to a bowl with us...thats theonly way. Other than that ,foley wont let it happen again on his watch! Lmao though.

Everyone knows the results of our games these season. Bringing facts in is all we must do to sustain an argument against such a loved ballyhooed presence as Golden and D'No's. The onus of proof is always on Us. Now on the contrary the strategy employed by dudes like U is excuses like: "NCAA clouds", Randy Shannon effects", "decks of cards that weren't cut", and "horsies".

Savannah St, USF and FAU have a combined 6 wins this season. Stats and facts is what jsy put up this morning in our defensive numbers without using 3 of the worst teams in college football right now. That type of effort (not just posting our wins and losses--something anyone can find on the web) is one that provides perspective in an argument of whether D'No has truly improved our defense or not. U are getting lapped, while u pat yourself on the back for pedestrian blogging.

All i know is this: we can't just have an offense that alternates between run and throwing bombs the rest of the year.

Especially against a stout Foster defensive unit!!

Of all the tangibles/intangibles, Va. Tech's nasty defensive unit has me worried the most. Especially with the untimely lost of THE DUKE.

Nothing against both Crawford or Clements, but the Double-C's don't have that BREAK-AWAY THREAT, which is needed against a Coach Foster defense.

The bottom line is both Coley and Stevie better get their heads out of their U Know What! Otherwise, all He!! will break lose in this here Cane forum. hUh

Hey we got our hands full with the traditional ACC and national powerhouses like VaTech, Duke, Virginia and Pitt.
----
VaTech and Duke that have a better record than UF, a team we already beat down?

Virginia, who beat us last year?

Pitt, is in their first year in the ACC?

I wish we had a coach that whined about the refs and claimed some wild conspiracy was the reason they were 4-4 right now.

Butch left because the administration didn't value football enough to pay him for his rebuild and ever since Coker's auto-pilot win, the administration has been full steam ahead with their "get more for less" monetary funding approach for this football program--thus the inadequate, "learn on the job" hires of Coker, RS and now Golden and the lack of institutional continuity and oversight that has ensued since.

Posted by: HarrietTubmanCane | November 06, 2013 at 03:20 PM
!!!!!!!!!!!!

Voila... and nothing against one Randy Shannon, but he was a FOURTH/FIFTH-TIER hire.

Because as U mentioned above H.T.C., the Powers that Be didn't wanna' dole out the mony. Or they didn't care for the ECCENTRICITIES or baggage of possible, NAMED head coaches. ENTER Mikey Leach stage right. hUh

RE: Suspect hires by previous A.D.'s and President Shalala

Also, didn't the previous Hurricane A.D. wanna' hire that PYSCHO, MAD-AS-A-HATTER Bo Pellini as a head coach. LOL

Chit, that TYRANT, good ol' boy Pellini had trouble defeating a INJURY-RIDDLED .500 team in MIGHTY Northwestern last Saturday in Stinkin' Lincoln.

And look at what a 7-5 Wisconsin team did to Big Nose Bo's beloved Go BIGot REDneck's in the Big 10 championship game last December. Seriously LMFAO

The Badgers only put up 70 points on an ANNUALLY overrated Herbie Cornhusker squad.

Heck, Bellamy-sp. CALLED off the BADGER's with approximately 9:00 left in the game. Otherwise, it's highly possble Whisky would've put another T.D. and FG on the scoreboard.

Gay-tors talking...let me put it this way...William and Mary is looking for a new coach and yur boi, the smiling hillbilly is at the top of their list...moron. your finished no more soflo recruits its over...

One thing is sure nough', that Michigan St. defense reminds me of the early Shannon defenses. Albeit the Spartans don't have as many PLAY MAKER'S as those Hurricane defense's circa 2000-2005.

Yet, Michigan St. plays that ATTACKING, AGGRESSIVE vintage " 4-3 " defense. With man-a-man being played the majority of the time.

Chit, I'll go on RECORD and PREDICT that the Spartan's will meet Ohio St. in their conference championship game and Michigan St. will sure nough' defeat Urban LIAR's squad!!

Why? Because it's all about the D-E-F-E-N-S-E. dUh

we lost...we will lose this week and next if we play the way we did in the 2nd 1/2 sat night...Morris needs to figure out how to not panic back there...seems very uncomfortable to me...but does turn around and make great accurate throws...but if pressure comes...he seems to be just getting rid of the ball...with no intent on 3rd or 4th row out of bounds...just toss it over there somewhere...dangerous and drive-killers.
Running QBs always give us FITS beyond imagination...it is going to be a tall task again this week. here's one Cane fan who is pulling and hoping we can run effectively, and get some 3 and outs...last week...not enough pressure and receivers were alone catching balls...God Bless all of you..you too Gallo.

VT will be a tough game. The VT QB might go 2nd round when he comes out.

But Let's take a look back and look at former St. Louis Rams OC Mike Martz. U know, he of the greatest show on Earth offense. U see, Martz didn't really have superstar players at each position. But he knew he had "skilled" players on O and simply implemented a system to get the ball up and down the field very fast. To do that U need a QB who can throw and do so on no more than a 3-4 step drop most of the times.

He used ingenuity and innovativeness. He instilled trust in his players and utilized every person at every single position.

I'm not asking the UM OC to mirror Martz. But, there is something called ingenuity and innovativeness and utilization of players that breeds excitement and winning.

I alwys said that U could take a guy like Jake "da Snake" Plummer and put him on that St. Louis team and they would have probably averaged about 100 points a game. Plummer will go down as the most UNDERRATED QB ever to play in the NFL.

Calvin: This might not be bad idea. I don't think it's going out on a limb, either:

This DB coach, Paul Williams, he appears to be a bright spot on the D side. Let's say DunnoToday or Tomorrow suddenly leaves: U think PW would be the first in-house choice to fill that spot. I also like what the WR coach is doing. These who guys deserve a bigger piece of the pie, U agree?

D: I don't think the DS administration wanted any parts of Mike Leach. U talk about independent thinkers: I think he's a lawyer, et all. And correct me if I'm wrong, he is the same Mike Leach that coached Grahman Harrell at Texas Tech, who got robbed of the Heisman to Teblow, in spite of having a better overall year at QB, higher percentage rate, number of TD's, etc.

Leach would have come into town and laid down the law....

Since Cal is lying through his teeth, here are the third down conversion rate against our D. WF was successful in the first half before getting shutdown in the second half.

FAU 6-19 (32%)
UF 6-15 (40%)
SSU 1-13 (8%)
USF 2-14 (14%)
GT 6-16 (38%)
UNC 5-15 (33%)
WF 8-16 (50%)
FSU 11-15 (73%)

This is only for folks who want to discuss on this blog rationally.

There is scheme, game plan, play call and execution. We are not playing soft zone exclusively. If I recall correctly, we were in a 3-4 base for UF and 4-3 base for GT. There are zone play calls and man play calls mixed in. Unless one looks at the official game tapes, it is not easy to deduce coverages etc. based on what we see on TV.

Unfortunately, of offense is not executing well. The 4th and 2 play where Duke got hurt, it appears Morris checked in to the run, so we don't know what Coley had called. So, things are not as simple as they seem. That is why the coaches are getting paid big bucks to develop strategy. On top of this there is always the philosophy (not everyone is willing to bet the house on every down).

On to VT. Yes they lost to Duke at home. VT had gained 387 yards vs 198 yards for Duke (VT 22% 3rd down efficiency vs 0 for Duke). Duke won because of the turnovers and VT's kicker's inability to kick FGs. In the end, who cares about total yards. It is the scoring defense that matters. BC vs VT (289 vs 446 and 38% vs 16% third down conversion). BC won because of turnovers.

VT vs Alabama (212 vs 206 and 35% vs 18%). Yes, VT had more yards than Alabama (the final score 35-7 doesn't reflect it). Alabama had only 2.5 yards per rush against VT.

Clearly, it is not going to be easy Saturday. Let's not fool ourselves. We need a couple defensive TDs and may a special teams TD.

JSY, question for you. Are you going to say Duke's and Alabama's offenses are equal based on the stats above? They are only 4 yards apart in total. So, it comes down to execution. Better talent will cover faults in execution.

Unbelievable. People want the madman Leach. There were a few people lobbying for Jim Harbaugh when Randy was hired. Harbaugh was still at SDSU at that time, but he had a DUI conviction. So, guess UM never went that route.

Leach is a law grad from Pepperdine. He is known not to have any extensive game plan. All he would have is a crumpled up sheet of paper in his pant pocket. I am not sure that will sit well with our prim and proper fans on this blog. LOL. And the James affair on top of that.

Malcolm X also said:

"I believe in the brotherhood of all men, but I don't believe in wasting brotherhood on anyone who doesn't want to practice it with me. Brotherhood is a two-way street."

The Miami Hurricanes are a brotherhood who practices what they preach, which is integrity, loyalty and hard work.

Those who constantly rip the program and Coach Golden ARE NOT a part of the Canes brotherhood...Malcolm X would have nothing to do with any of you...NOTHING!!!

It's a Canes thing--you haters will never understand!!

Football

Man its nice breath of fresh air to hear from a guy who backs his statement with facts.

Yet, Michigan St. plays that ATTACKING, AGGRESSIVE vintage " 4-3 " defense. With man-a-man being played the majority of the time.

Chit, I'll go on RECORD and PREDICT that the Spartan's will meet Ohio St. in their conference championship game and Michigan St. will sure nough' defeat Urban LIAR's squad!!

Why? Because it's all about the D-E-F-E-N-S-E. dUh

Posted by: D | November 06, 2013 at 04:14 PM

MSU lost to ND. Goes to show you all stats are not made equal. However, they have a very dominant DL. I watched some of Mich/ MSU last weekend and no wonder it is hard to run against them (Michigan had -48 yards rushing). But they only scored 21 on USF while giving up 6 (USF had about 10% 3rd down conversion rate in both UM and MST games).

Posted by: StormsCominBitches | November 06, 2013 at 05:29 PM

My pleasure. These negative nancies don't know what they are talking about most of the time.

Ron, you know what is funny? When someone is pulling out the said knife, it is going to be at six inches out at one time or the other before it is completely pulled out and wound healed. (unless some one has a magic wand that makes the knife dissolve and disappear). One needs to walk before running and these fools want instant gratification and return to glory. We need to win the coastal first!

Coach Golden is the choice of impostors, he is a stunt double at best of our previous coaches, so the decision to hire him and him, himself are not deserving of my loyalty unfortunately.

Its not his fault (its not personal--he's just doing the best he can and his job) he lucked into this job with a sub .500 record to hopefully overachieve despite his pedigree of not winning anything. His bosses are the culprits and their insistence upon neglecting this football program and providing annual excuses to robots that love a fallacy--does not deserve my or anyone's loyalty. If U choose to be misled and fight on a lie (like Slim Charles from "The Wire"), then thats your prerogative, but don't push that on me. Lies have never benefitted me in my life, so I don't have any affinity or use for them. That may be the difference--maybe you've found utility in BS--not I.

Upholding lies and being docile in the face of them is exactly why X went at ML King and they beefed. But before Dr. King was killed he was speaking different and about to connect with X (explains a lot).

There's only one way to confront BS and thats to go right at it--directly. Waiting for fakes and liars to work an imaginary self-imposed "process" is a pipe dream. They making money while we remain mediocre and that$ all that matters.

They aint our brothers until they disassociate with the impostors and free this program. We have been infiltrated, even got Uncle Cane Toms misinterpreting X.

They quote works against U thanks. Don't act like u understand realness Zook when U openly reflect and embody an identity crisis in something as obvious as your name!

Ron Zook--a known moron Gator is your name of choice, but U come here telling Us about what it is to be a Cane!

F outta here with that nut ish!

We don't have to wait for the time it takes to heal when the wound is self-inflicted.

We are stabbing ourselves, so your post is null and void..again.

If its not coaching why are we still running the same playaction pass play that jacory threw 30 ints in two years on a bumb ankle. More bad things have happened on that play than good. Yeah we throw a td for every three ints and two sack but yet we are still running that play with morris on a bumb ankle. Fsu blitzed whenever they thought that play was coming and before morris could turn around he was being forced into a bad decision. Will someone please explain that?

HTC, just to be clear, I wasn't talking to you. It is useless to debate liars and illogical folks.

D that spartan defense is nice to watch... Just image that style with our athletes.... No objective fan can compare our defensive roster with theirs and say we are not more talent at worst it's a draw. Would it be so hard for dno to run this style, clearly his doesn't work coaches are supposed to adapt to even schemes outside your comfort zone and what u learned ala Pruitt. That's what's frustrating bc golden is doing so much good but dno will forever hold him back. If we get back to playing defense like this we will once agin intimidate the opposition

Also manny had about three or four grammatical errors in his article but i dont see anyone calling him a moron. The fact is people write on this blog from cell phones and ipads that correct what you write. Alot of times i write things and get timed out so there is the rushing element as well. Instead of attacking people about there grammar lets keep it on football. Im a writer i appologize bro.

Are you serious? MSU has some studs on their DL and they execute very well.

VT executes very well too on D.

Football your last post makes absolutely no sense and you're getting manhandled...again...despite your illustrious degrees. They didn't taught U how to be a good employee, nit a boss and your training shows thru everyday here.

U might not have been talking to me, but u referenced my post talking about magic wands and healing before or as the knife is pulled out??? mumble jumbo.

Stay clear away for my posts, if they're gonna do your indoctrinated mind like that. Sit down and drink some lukewarm water.

The "process" is the budget jargon designed to keep U hoping. Proof: The Miami Hurricane--in the backyard of the most fertile HS football recruiting talent in the world--has never played for the championship game of the weakest major football conference in the nation. Look at who's in the Coastal and yall say we don't have the "horsies" lol. Yall should be ashamed of yourselves for upholding this self-stagnation.

Hook--Line--And Sinker.

Have never heard so much b#t#hing from a fan base of a 7-1 team (composed of mostly freshmen and sophomores and a gimpy QB). Most teams would be satisfied with that record and know we would build on it. FSU has been working toward NC status for 5 years. We have been doing this for two. What do you idiots expect? IT TAKES FIVE YEARS! (Remember Butch's Canes??? FIVE YEARS!)

Again, cry me a river (or go pound sand, LOL)

The formula remain untarnished but ignored:

70% of the South floridian talent + innovative, intelligent, adequate, and aggressive coaching = a NC.

Everything else is debatable fodder.

That equation for UM success is proven, tangible and the components still exist!

But yall would rather worry about a sorry VT squad every year. When in application: that formula would make them leave our conference from the beatdown they would annually take.

But go ahead and embrace "the struggle" brothaz!

Football, when u say studs are you going off of size, skill, or performance? If u meant size we are nice and super sized now after 2 full u toughs so not much dif there. If u talk skill we actually have higher ranking guys according to stars on our dline, now performance they are way ahead. Based on combine numbers we are there with them and we are collectively viewed as more talented according to stars so where we lack is performance. It's clear msu developed there talent better and they use an aggressive scheme to best put their guys who they molded in the best position to make plays. So the only part where we lack is on the coaches side. If our guys were coached up properly and especially used better we would have studs bc we actually started with better material. Dno in three years how many studs has he created?

And u say msu and TV execute well, isn't execution supposed to be taught by coaches? If anything guys who showed promise as freshman on the defensive are getting worse in year 3 of dno ie chick he was under armour MVP and look at his lack of progression so I'm just saying this dno scheme is the reason we never have studs.

Coach Golden is the choice of impostors, he is a stunt double at best of our previous coaches, so the decision to hire him and him, himself are not deserving of my loyalty unfortunately.

Its not his fault (its not personal--he's just doing the best he can and his job) he lucked into this job with a sub .500 record to hopefully overachieve despite his pedigree of not winning anything.

This man is on his way to winning a pulitzer prize. Dawg, any time some imbecile tries to use what MALCOM X said in reference to coach goldie, you already know you dealing with a buffoon. They can't stand up to the Truth, make it plain!

Like Randy, we can put him out, throw him a screen or line him up in the slot because he does catch the ball really well."
^^^^^^^^^^^^

Well where in the hell have I been, cause I hardly EVER see us throwing screens to Randy....

....a kid who should be catching three screens a game, far as I can see.
