Google Hangout with Canes fans via SportsManias

I got a chance today to participate in my first Google Hangout with a trio of Canes fans and our friends at SportsManias.

Here is the recording.

Sadly, you are about right, cfl. Our HC is better at the PR end of it though, so there's that, which is nice.

T o Sht very familiar with sucking. Or, is it football season now?

^^Weak. Again, its ok if U don't have anything to say or contribute, just read, no one will notice.

Way to find something positive for the new year. I admit I was wrong, about that. I'm gonna go watch the rest of the rose bowl. Where defense is played. I hope someone else is watching, know what I mean? Have a great new year, to the beed, champ, gallo, and all canes fans. and even zook

I'll say this again, no moron goldie team could beat any Shannon headcoached team or any other headcoach at UM since the 80's, why, because they all pretty much played real defense, if Louisville shut us down, no way would this offense do much against any other UM team.

Gallo youre a fing idiot

Duke isnt going anywhere son. Let alone west va. Hahahahahahahahahahahah

What a maroon

And for all you who quote pil buchanon. Who cares what buchanon says. Hes entitled to is opinion

But most of you dumba...es fail to ackowledge that miami is 9-4. 7-5 last year. 7-6 the year before. We beat florida.

No we aint there yet... But phil buchanon, guess what bro, you werent ready in 1999 either. And neither were we ready for a repeat in 1985.

This team is a manifestation of Randy Shannon. This is Randy Shannons product. The o line, the QB, are his. Some of the receivers were his. All except walford and hrns have been gross underachievers. Morris was a bust. Period. This season he was to bust out. Ok he wqs hurt. He wasnt hurtbagainst louisville. He was 12 for 27. On one play he could have run for at least 4 yds on 2nd and 6. He ran for two then threw it oob. His demeankr is worse than jacorry harris. He has no passion. This team shows no passion. No heart.

And for the stupidity that Golden throws Duke under the buss, its true.... Bro cant stay on the field. Why? Bc hes tiny to be a featured back. These players need discipline. And the est they need to execute. The defense cannot execute to save their lives. Chikillo? Bust. Bust bust bust bust bust. Do we have safeties?

I began the New Year with a big mistake...

I forgot to post what all knowledgeable college football fans know...

AL GOLDEN IS THE BEST COACH AND RECRUITER IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Poor ole dumb Calvin...he posts a completely stupid comment that is so off the rails that not even the haters feel comfortable giving him an 'attaboy'. So, what does he do...you guessed it...he posts the same stupidity again!!

I sure hope you are a paid basher Calvin, along with Harriet and 'Is It Football Season Yet' (and yes you dummy, it is football season), because any other type of employment by you 3 nitwits puts us all in danger.

Mountain cane,

Why don't you pick a name more suited to who you really are? Gator "Killer" Cane doesn't fit a guy that allows a threat over the internet to force him to change the name he uses to post on a sports blog. Here's a recommendation, GatorPoodleGirlCane.

You come here so you can talk tough. Every one knows you are pie sweet.

Posted by: Calgallharriet leave this blog | January 01, 2014 at 08:17 PM

LMAO!!!!!

Its Randy's fault and Duke sucks lol!

Dude are turning red in the face and it couldn't possibly be their Lord and Savior Golden...its everybody else ROTF!!!

Without Shannon's offensive recruits U named, Golden wouldn't have one victory since he took the job and thats a fact.

So many ex-Cane fans going thru identity crisis!

MSU defense is the real deal. Dantonio was the DC for OSU in the 2002 NC game.

These bowl games are bittersweet, I wish we had a great coach.

Just in case you slurpers forgot

LMAO

And since you're an ex player can u share your experiences with us? Any former player even career back ups were so quick to share stories about their experience so it shouldn't be a big deal for you either

Harriet TUBMAN & jsy, that guy is a moron along with the penn disgrace morons, he doesn't know football he just prostitutes himself for the penn disgrace queers over the players. No way is this guy a UM fan he's exactly as you described em, goldie/ganes fan.

Waste of time, knows nothing about football, he comes off tho as don bailey, but even if it is him, even he knows he's waisting time. The things people do for a paycheck!

UM will win a football nat'l championship under Golden. I'm saving the ridiculous comments from this thread to re-post after this happens.

And it does matter how we win, with class and no off the field issues. Get a grip on what's important if you don't believe this.

For a while I assumed Zook was one of the unnamed Sandusky victims that's why he loved him some golden and all things psu. But after he claims he's an ex um player I realized it must be true that he's like victim number 6 and he just makes up lies to deal with the post traumatic stress. Must be why he's the first to call everyone liar bc that's your defense mechanism to deal with your own lies which u need to cope with what u went through up there with Jerry. I hope u get better Zook. And may this year being closure to your past trauma.

Yea I know Calvin, but its easier said than done when so much ignorance is spewed mixed with arrogance. Thats the key--its ok to be wrong or not know, but to be ignorant, arrogant and insulting at the same time is ridiculous.

Don Bailey wouldn't be able to be this dumb, this consistently, he wouldn't insult fans and be able to hide his identity without telling some sort of story (like jsy is asking) that gave him away.

Posted by: jsy | January 01, 2014 at 09:01 PM

I think you are correct JSY. Zookie I apologize, I now understand what you are going through.

Storm Johnson is going off, gearing up for the league. Another Shannon garbage recruit lol!

The problem with many on here is the fact that they don't know what the purpose of a blog is which is simply to share thoughts and ideas. I personally like reading all sides to arguments but there are some like Zook who only cut and paste, resort to name calling when proven wrong, or resort to blatant lies in an attempt to justify their ideas and opinions. Those are the types of ppl who destroy blogs. As much as guys like five titles are constantly looking for who is a troll it's obvious the biggest instigator or troll on this blog is Zook who blatantly posts garbage like al golden is the best purely to upset ppl he even posts mult times he just enjoys putting htc on tilt. How is that not the biggest tool of all. Also zook doesnt realise that True greatness doesn't have to be proven to others or forced down our throats we would all just know.

Harriet TUBMAN, I don't even read that morons post! I just happen to see some of his comments while reading other peoples post!

ROFL, now this might be the funniest post of them all, please keep mine, i'll sign my name to them em!

C'mon guys leave the Sandusky victims out of this......he provides enough material to ridicule him with all on his own, like his mother, anybody want a turn with her, I'm only charging $2, $1 refund if she bites

Storm Johnson looks really good tonight.

Rose bowl was awesome. Really glad for MSTU.

HNY, CFL. All.

Not even Goldilocks knows when he'll sniff a NC, it's not in the binder. Schnelly on the other hand said he'd do it in 5, and got it done.

We're on the 20 year luck up into a national championship plan! troll Shalala loves the direction of the football program, the castration of UM football ran by that troll, it's a sad day, but it was obvious they were going corporate once they got rid of the o.b. Once again, they continue to miscalculate the City, while other universities across the country spends millions of dollars trying to load their rosters with the football treasures coming out of Miami, they're basically running the UM program now like the dolphins who never drafted from the Hurricanes, just selectively but don't bring to many of them to his team.

Posted by: I'm just sayin | December 31, 2013 at 10:11 PM

I'm disappointed too. But in the words of PatRiley, "you gotta move on!!"

Butch and Pete aren't coming back. They left. Turned their backs on []_[], where it's an inbred culture and you better wait your turn; just like Randy did. Those, old rich antiques on the BOT have egos bigger than than a cadillac and memories like elephants. I had this same chat years back with a fried who has been there 35 years. Seen the []_[]'s best days. Butch ain't welcomed without some serious humble pie and he don't strike me as that type of dude to eat his principles.

I respect Philip and your opinions but AL has earned the opportunity to perform without SANCTIONS, self-imposed or otherwise to go with the specter of the NCAA haunting []_{}s the last 3 seasons. Like it or not. The dude could have dipped but he stood tall with []_[]s. And I guarantee if Penn State comes calling he stays with this []_[].

He withdrew his name from UCLA, Tennessee, and Cincinnati before taking this job recognizing the importance of the University of Miami football legacy. Going on to say "It's the most recognizable brand in college football...I go back to the former players that are here, the five national championships, 20 national award winners, countless All-Americans, incredible tradition. It's a dream job... A destination job"

I'm as deeply disappointed as every other fan and alum, but we gotta let the man do his thing.

Show me Phillip's twitter on Shannon after the El Paso bowl, please. That team laid down. Baptized by Virginia in the last OB game. No sanctions and number one recruiting class. This is not a knock on Randy but, how can you reconcile that with that Golden has done? Go read what people said about Butch after 5-6 in year three. Now you beg for him to come back?

Have patience and have vision. Al needs better people around him, and hopefully he has the wherewithal to bring in Soldinger and someone to help with the defense.

That 300 page binder looks like the book in the shining. "All work and no defense makes D'no my best friends. All work and no defense makes D'no my best friend. All play and no defense makes Zook my best friend". And so on
Desert Victory should be the title. If your a gator(like Zook), then it's dessert victory.
I'm crackin' myself up.

Golden and staff are the infraction committee. Who else would destroy the U branding. 2years running already going on year 3 . Bad offense, bad defense, running off players, unknown suspension of players, handing out scholarships at Walmart and Target . It's quantity over quality. Yet this staff is still encharge.NCAA henchmen. Definitely not coaches

Posted by: Next Man []_[]p aka Mahoney-Pearson |

No need to bring Shannon into this. Can you show me what he tweeted back when Shannon lost those games?

"Like it or not. The dude could have dipped but he stood tall with []_[]s. And I guarantee if Penn State comes calling he stays with this []_[]"


Why do you guys keep making this up? Where was he going? Where is the evidence of a similar situation where a coach left his "dream job" over pending sanctions? Saying he could've left as if the contract extension wasn't the reason for staying is now a running joke.

One thing I agree with you on is the fact that we are stuck with this bum so lets just hope he hire better assistants because we all know he can't coach. .500

Why is golden trying to fundamentally change the most recognizable brand in cfb? Why not uphold the legacy instead of trying to change the defense? Seriously he's the biggest walking contradiction.

//////////////////////////////

ROFL, this is the new fan base mentality, the ones who like to blame games on Shannon that he didn't even coach in, lol. Or the ones who want to blame a blow-out loss on Shannon in his first year but we got a moron that's still getting blown out consistently in his 3rd year. Did he sanctions stop tracy howard from coming here, how bout jalen grimble, dzp, 3g, gionni paul, deon bush, artie burns, Alquadin Muhammad, tyriq McCord, Jermaine grace and many others on defense, these guys don't want to face the facts, the sanctions must of only hurt the defense on game days cause offensively the sanctions hasn't hurt recruiting.

Now the mantra is, give this moron more time, lol.

Now that is a good question, jsy. The answer is in the 300 page binder somewhere.

Posted by: Next Man []_[]p aka Mahoney-Pearson | January 01, 2014 at 09:47 PM

Why continue to plead and now beg people to engage in professional relationships with Golden that aren't balanced. What does anyone get from the deal to be under him while their own expertise corrects his ship? What is your sell pitch? That he stayed during the NCAA investigation? Well thats because he asked for and was granted a raise to do so. He won't leave UM because he has a great con going on thats been approved thru 2020, why would he leave this con for a school that just got exposed for their own? We (UM) are the new and fresh hustle and he has Us by the balls (evidenced by your posts).

What prowess or acumen can Golden provide an intelligent and up and coming DC or OC?

Why are we being asked to have vision when Golden recently admitted to not having one himself anymore.

Why do we owe Al Golden our trust, patience and the right to employment at our favorite school while he learns how to coach in his 8th year as a HC?

"let him do his thing" has only been explained as him recruiting 4 and 5 stat talent and then we'll be allowed to have expectations for our team again. U do understand that this means that if we begin to win, it still has nothing to do with his ability to scheme or game plan right?

His sells pitch only involves the action or skill of other people (recruits and Soldinger etc..)

And finally, Butch's teams showed glimpses of development, passion, and good scheming under real sanctions...not just idle threats.

GIVE AL GOLDEN A BIG RAISE...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

What makes Al Golden the best coach in all of college football? Many things! He held the program together when it should have gone the root of SMU after their NCAA beat-down. He has instilled pride back into the program and invited former Canes greats to once again be positive influences on the current players after being run off by Randy Shannon. He has instituted the U-Tough program that has already produced extraordinary results and will be even more productive as the highly talented type of players Miami has been use too signing join the program. He is better organized that any coach to have ever walked the "U's" sidelines. His understanding of the game and experience is massive and includes first-hand knowledge of both the college and Pro game. He is brilliant in the X's and O's of the game and produces Bill Belichick types of game plans. His recruiting prowess is feared by all of the major schools knowing he will soon own the hotbed of recruiting, South Florida and that means championships. He is very smart inside and outside of football that allows him to garner badly needed PR for the Canes that helps in recruiting and Polls that will help secure votes from those who have been Canes haters in the past. He has already proven to be a great game day coach as most every close game the Canes have been involved in they've won. He has improved every player that he has coached going back to his days at Boston College, Virginia, Penn State, etc. and his positive impact on current Canes players on many levels, which is evident to anyone that is being honest. His goal setting is clear, concise and understandable by his players. He instituted summer camps that are huge recruiting tools. He has gone to the student body to enlist their loyalty knowing that is an area that will promote more attendance and also create a buzz on the campus that serves to inspire the players, he's a leader of men and today's Miami players love the man and would follow him into war and fight hand to hand combat against others with high powered weapons...AND HE'S A WINNER!!

The above is just a small sampling of what Al Golden offers as...THE BEST COACH IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Bad timing again Mahoney, as we are currently watching Art Briles and George O'Leary's chess match with 2 and 3 star recruits that they are getting the most out of. And just finished watching Dantonio and Shaw battle schematically with lesser recruits than our own. All four teams would demolish Us under Golden.

The television is riddled with examples of quick turnaround, capable defense, passionate play, coaching skill and planning, and player development. All these games are competitive.

Beed,

and he's got that going for him...LOL

Great post!!

On a football note, Louisville did something I have never seen. They scrambled their D prior to the snap. Guys were just milling around.

Because UM uses that "call the play, get set, look at the sideline, get set and run the real play," UL had a clever response that negated any possible UM advantage.

Since I can't stand what UM does (get set and run the play, let the QB call audibles, stupid!!!), I hope that UL's innovation will put an end to that garbage.

Don't break your focus by looking to the sidelines! Decide on the play, gear up and run it.

Um already looked uncertain and confused.

Don't let a stupid play calling gimmick worsen UM's problem of diminished confidence and maintaing focus.

What makes your posts so hilarious is you truly think you know something about college football.

When I first starting reading your clueless gibberish I felt sorry for you believing your twaddle must be due to some extraordinary learning disorder, it was only later that I learned you are a narcissist who truly thinks he knows everything and has never been wrong.

Here's a thought...stop sucking on your mommy teat...take a bath...get a job...and move out of your parent's home and stop sponging off them.

"Why do you guys keep making this up? Where was he going? Where is the evidence of a similar situation where a coach left his "dream job" over pending sanctions? Saying he could've left as if the contract extension wasn't the reason for staying is now a running joke."

2.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/06/15/pete-carroll-denies-he-took-seahawks-job-to-flee-usc-sanctions/

Difficult to provide "evidence" why any coaches leave programs but to think none ever have to put themselves in a better position to win is silly. That's why most all leave. See Urban Liar. And while you're at it, read my post again. Golden had 3 withdrawals before accepting the []_[]'s legacy, and a turndown in 2012. He had and will continue to have opportunities.

As far as Phillip's comments after El Paso, unlike you, I already looked. Couldn't find anything. That's the point. He's loud proud now, but he bit his tongue against Randy? You gotta be consistent man. You can't disparage Al Golden's job--no matter the shortcomings--if you never said bunk about Randy's final season (No disrespect to Randy). I can care less if he's was player, he gotta keep it 100%. We looked bad, Al owned it! Now, LETS MOVE ON!.

If this becomes a trend in the upcoming season, then we'll talk, but the man earned his currency. And do your research before you question what I post. I already commented on the quality of an un-researched rhetorical question.

Bridgewater and storm could have been at the U. Instead we are stuck with garbage a@@ golden. Psu please come get him.

AG will do like his BFF did when the temple job opened the 2nd time. Pull his name out of the hate when psu is about to pass him over.

I don't think Goldie should be fired but if him jetting back home is the only way to get rid of the acting dco I'm good with him leaving!!

Congratulations to UCF on an upset victory. These guys were focused and played tough.

As I watch good teams in the bowls, it further illustrates how pathetic UM's performance was against Louisville, and what ineffective coaching we have. Even at 9 -4, too many signs of train wreckage coming up down the road.

Hope I am wrong. But there is something amiss with teams and their coaches that come out "flat" when it is on the line. The star ratings and young players thing is BS. A good coach makes the best out of the available material.

And by the way, those who suggested Art Briles for the UM coach, forget about. 17 penalties, upset by a 17 point underdog. Weird play calls...Nope.

If this becomes a trend in the upcoming season, then we'll talk, but the man earned his currency. And do your research before you question what I post. I already commented on the quality of an un-researched rhetorical question.

Posted by: Mahoney-Pearson | January 01, 2014 at 11:42 PM

Exactly how did Golden earn his currency after year one when he received his raise and extension thru 2020? Keep selectively ignoring posts to stay relevant and garner reprieve for a man with admittedly no true substance nor ability to satisfy his job duties without having the most ideal and perfect circumstances possible. If he needs the best coordinators and players to be successful, then what does he bring to the table exactly?

Posted by: Ron Zook | January 01, 2014 at 11:13 PM

You've been exposed yet again by numerous bloggers today, they've convinced me that U aren't worth my time and especially now that you've added an inferiority complex to your already evident Canes/Ganes identity crisis.

I'm not a narcissist because I make U feel less than and dumb, thats not my fault. U get what U put out.

Let's be real here folks Al and staff will be lucky to win the coastal.But it want be anytime soon. This staff isn't seasoned enough. Al will not replace anybody in his inner circle. NSD is not to far away. Yes we will lose quality recruits and are so called number3ranking in recruiting. So some of the guys blame Randy for Golden failures. Take a good look at guys Randy recruited that are playing somewhere else. Blake James knows nothing about Miami Football and Donna to busy to take notice. So now we have idiots who say be patience. As long as we see significant progress. Patience is granted. No progress,No goal, No time frame and No changes in staffing so why would we expect anything different this year? Penn State not interested in the best coach in collegefootball. They will take a proven winner at the highest level of football. At the end of the day when all proven winning coaches are all taken. We will have the best coach in college football and the blog jester who use to suit up and run threw the smoke. The greatest athlete and now fan of the U Ron Zoom.

I luv all the prognosticating...

Can't wait till Saturday night.

Posted by: Next Man []_[]p aka Mahoney-Pearson | December 26, 2013 at 11:06 AM

So what did Saturday night prove again? It seems that U were anticipating some sort of conclusion or resolution being pulled/drawn from the bowl game that would shut all "prognosticating" down. Now U say one game and even 3 seasons of games, footage, and results aren't enough to "talk" yet. One game was enough during pre-game chit chat, but now U coppin deuces.

Is it your pleas for more time, patience, and vision?

What smart and capable person would voluntarily keep unintelligent and inept people around them? How could Golden be any different from his assistants if he continues to keep them around him in a professional setting with expectations this high?
