UM Hurricanes football coach Al Golden releases first spring depth chart -- just in time for spring game

UM Depth 4-07-14

So we finally get a depth chart -- and the saddest part is that quarterback Ryan Williams' name isn't on it. Hang in there, Ryan.

No surprises on offense, except maybe that Malcolm Lewis is one of the starting wideouts with an "OR'' between his name and Phillip Dorsett's.

The defensive line has lots of "ORs'' in between names.

On special teams, Matt Goudis is battling it out with Ricky Carroll for the punter's job. Stacy Coley is the starting punt returner, with Dorsett behind him; and Coley shares the kick returning job with Artie Burns. Wow. That's a nice lineup for returns. 

Click on the depth chart to make it larger.

See you at the scrimmage Saturday.

Lot of ---or----at this time of year.

I like it. Can't wait to see what we got. Favorite part was where it says "DEFENSE 4-3". Thank you.

LETS GO CANES 2014!!!!!


Let's go Candy Canes....3-9 this season at best...with the opener against the Cards. Hey, does anyone here remember the score the last the Candy Canes played them??

Lol ollie, i also remeber last the score they beat your gators by also....thats 3 ACC loses in a calender year for them. Your barking up the wrong tree.

No surprises on offense? How about Clive Walford listed as third team at tight end?

Never have bashed the Canes, so U are wrong. The Canes are those who aren't paid employees, like fans and players in my opinion. Until you've won something as a paid employee, you're just that. Are former ADs Einhorst & Hocutt Canes? Is Patrick Nix a Cane and above reproach?

Golden and D'No are employees, who tried to leave a few months ago and that have ravaged the defensive philosophy that made the U what it is. They openly speak of changing our culture and Raising Canes, but the results don't match the speech. Dudes can't coach, and I don't care what color they are. If U check the history of posts, I fully supported them until midseason in the 2nd year of their tenure at UM. Thats when it became apparent to me that they were in over their heads.

This is Golden's defense and thats the #1 reason why D'No is still the DC, followed closely by his being Golden's best friend, college roommate, and best man. This a fact that many ignore by continuing to call for D'No head, when Golden has said numerous times that it is his defense. If it wasn't Golden's defense, D'No would have been fired.

Again, understating and ignoring the negative posts that I respond to is hilarious. I respond to and take up the fight against negative posts against true Cane family members.

I haven't posted here in months, but as soon as I start then iIm accused of consistently being negative lol. I think this is a case of not wanting too read what U don't agree with, but thats life right?

marios apparently needs to be tutored on what we post. Unless he's calling the 2 penn disgrace morons UM, we don't bash UM, we bash the morons in it that have helped and continue to help bring this football program down and make us mediocre.

People like to keep trying to bash shannon and jacory, when it was those 2 who help to bring this team back to national prominence. shannon got stuck with an stupid oc who didn't have shannon's best interest at heart and like many on this blog, because shannon was who he was, like obama, they don't care how smart he is, they just made cause he black.

In year 3 under shannon, we had basically 4 primetime games, and showed up in all of them, yeah the V-tech score might not have looked that way, but had jimmy graham caught a couple of passes and the stupid oc didn't keep putting j70 under center with an empty backfield that game would've been a whole lot different too. How come in shannon's 2nd year and in the 2nd game of that year, shannon went toe to toe with the eventual national champions with a garbage oc that shannon was forced to go to war with because of budget issues.

Be that as it may, no matter how bad patrick nix was, none of shannon's coordinators or coaches were ever worst than the head morons penn disgrace buddy ever. But yet, somehow some way, people want to keep acting like shannon didn't leave these morons any players, what was the defense ranked in shannon's last year here and what was the defense ranked in these morons 1st year here, they got left with a top 25 defense at worst.

I've been come to the conclusion you can't talk football with people who just luv to sac ride an imbecile head coach that hasn't won nothing at UM yet. We support the players not some coaches who should be privileged to even be able to coach the players at UM that can bring them to national prominence if they get out of the way, but instead you got morons coming in here with an unproven track record, no championships to show for it nowhere trying to stake claim that they can bring a national championship here.

And are trying to teach players a new way of playing football that not to many people in Miami are familiar except losing arse don shula, it's the same stupid system. Decent offense, no defense.

I like how people try and dismiss what jacory did while at UM. For someone to try and complain that jacory didn't do at UM what he did at the West is just asinine. Furthermore, for j70 to have thrown for 70 touchdowns with the offensive lines he had, dorsey only got sacked about 7 times 1 year and than in the national championship game, he gets hit a few times and all of a sudden this mofo is rattled.

If you put j70 on any team ken dorsey was on it wouldn't have been fair to college football, you put dorsey on any team j70 was on and that man would be lucky if he had 40 touchdown passes. Also add j70 being coached by the same coaching staff, he would've definitely did the same things if not more at UM than he did at the West. 70 touchdowns with matt pipho as your starting right tackle during alot of that time should put you in the race for the heisman alone.

dorsey did a lot of good things while he was here, but that national championship game was pathetic, phantom picks, missing dre wide open, can't hit a wide open tight-end in the flats to tie the game up, did everything he could to help lose that game. Also, there were many games where dorsey played like trash but it got covered up because of the defense getting turn-overs and the runningbacks, but particularly mcgahee that year.

Somehow, people want to act like dorsey was a 1st round pick or something.

Never have bashed the Canes, so U are wrong. The Canes are those who aren't paid employees, like fans and players in my opinion. Until you've won something as a paid employee, you're just that. Are former ADs Einhorst & Hocutt Canes? Is Patrick Nix a Cane and above reproach?

^^^^^^^^

Keep teaching fellas!!

Keep teaching!!!!

This is all these morons care about, is weight, weight & more weight. No, we're not going to be blown away by duke johnson at 205 or whatever he is, in fact, we'll see if any defenses are going to be blown away by duke johnson like he did them in his freshman year or will he get tracked down like he did against Unc because of those extra pounds.

This man should still be at 195lbs, he doesn't need to be at this weight until his senior year.
/////////////////////////////


Golden said “if you haven’t seen Duke Johnson you are going to be blown away by him – 205, 206 pounds.

that depth chart look real shallow.
36-9

Does anyone on the team care? When I see what happened with Seantrell Henderson, who basically wasted his time at UM partying and not fulfilling his potential, it tells me that the team has very few players who care. UM better star to develop a "tea" or they'll continue to be mediocre and never even win the Coastal division. When Duke can do so and Miami still can't ever win, it may be time to say that UM is a joke and everyone is laughing.

sucks to be U

Gee CALVIN, why don't you get more knowledgeable about Dorsey, and quit talking nonsense.

While at the University of Miami, Dorsey was known as a consummate winner, leading the Hurricanes to the 2001 national championship and posting a record of 38–2 as the team's starting quarterback. Dorsey also effectively rewrote the school record book, setting career records for total offense (9,486 yards), passing yards (9,565), passing touchdowns (86), pass completions (668), pass attempts (1,153), victories as a starting quarterback (38), winning percentage by a starting quarterback (.974), 200-yard passing performances (31), consecutive passes without an interception (193), consecutive games with a touchdown pass (31), and touchdown passes in a game (5). In addition, he was named the co-MVP of the 2002 Rose Bowl (in which Miami defeated the University of Nebraska to win its fifth national championship), Offensive Player of the Year twice (2001, 2002), and First-team All-Big East three times (2000, 2001, 2002). Dorsey was also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy in both 2001 and 2002 and the winner of the 2001 Maxwell Award, which is given to the national collegiate player of the year.
In 2002, he led Miami to an undefeated regular season and a National Championship berth, where Miami would fall to eventual champion Ohio State in what is remembered as one of the all-time best bowl games in the history of college football. In double-overtime Dorsey and the Hurricanes were upset in their bid to win a second straight national championship. He passed for 296 yards, 2 TD's, and 2 picks. Miami finished the season 12–1, ranking second behind the Buckeyes. Dorsey finished the season with 3,369 passing yards, 28 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He was once again a finalist for the Heisman Trophy.

You did notice 86 TD's, 9500 yards. Yeah it sounds like he had a terrible game against OS what was that 296 for 2 TD's. Calvin you're a moron.

everything al golden says makes me sick......

congrats to UConn.....sanctions, undersized, 1st year coach, coaching legend retires.....beats villanova, Iowa state, Michigan state, Florida....#1/2, then wins national championship....great game caller

that's a REAL coach who's players won it for the coach...imagine if UM had that type of coach and staff at UM football?

thug basketball and NEVER an excuse or TMZ. K.O. put his dues in and deserves all of it.

Yeah Calvin, the stats show jacorywas a much better QB than Dorsey...............moron,.

Golden needs to wake up DC Mark has done a poor job all the way around, Golden has protected him but the Dofornio luck has run out, he has to go and you wont see big improvement, and one thing for sure Golden doesnt have another year with him, timetable is now, no other coachs have ever taken this long with same circumstances, in NCAA football, Golden needs to address or go with mess.The PR man and BS has to stop this year!!!!!!!

Compton LA mentality and toughness K.O meets dapper silk suited calipari (golden)...lol

ya got to love it.....

Hey Oliver!

21-16.

SEC stands for Second Embarrassing Conclusion.
And both times, a gator like you was cheering for auburn and kentucky because your team was not a factor. such loyalty to your team.

why are you on this board?

PS: UConn with their fourth title in basketball, Miami with four in baseball and five in football, while the gators wallow in mediocrity with less than four in any of them.

Damn lots of copy pasters is in here.

Dorsey was a player in the League from 03' to 08'. Enough said. If Noodle arm stick figure was on par- or equal to (better?, wouldn't you think he would of a least had a shot in the NFL. To me, that's the deal breaker. The other points maybe valid, but if Dorsey was on Harris team, stats and talent suggest Dorsey would've done bit better.

His soft demeanor, lack of command, and ineffectiveness will always hit a soft spot for me. Marve should've played instead. There, I said it.

Calvin, HTC et al. Your preaching a self-fulfilling prophecy. Those like Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan, who *propagate* their preaches, are preaching a self-fulfilling prophecy. By keep saying “the man” won’t let the blacks succeed is only morphing the *heard* into a singular, unified thought of self-inflicted failure.

It not backs vs. whites anymore. It's rich vs. poor. Elites vs. middle class. We need to stand and be on the same side.

Calvin, and HTC, Cane72, and some others, the season hasn't started yet, and you've already got us stinking again, so here's a PERFECT opportunity to GET THE F down the road and root for someone ELSE. I mean really you guys seem to relish in bashing the team or the coaches, and seriously you guys must have horrible lives and just mad and angry all the time at what seems like life. I could be wrong, but jeez if it's that bad, why not root for a team that'll at least put a smile on your face?

Chit, opinions are like arses, everyones got em. Next time my posts are going to be purely sports related.

Cola, the morons you cited plus gallo are just racist morons. They won't change. Gallo picks out the team that won the tourney (out of 68) and compares the guy in some manner to Golden. How about some of the other 67? Guess that just lacked that Compton toughness.

If Jmike can't get Calvinindo to get off the harris is better than Dorsey kick, that should tell you how unlikely this batch of fools is to change. Harris threw 50/50 floater balls that everyone had a shot to catch. If you float enough long passes, of course you'll throw a lot of TDs. And an alarming # of interceptions too.

^^^^^ because they are gators and the gators cant put a smile on anyones face but georgia southern so the come hereand bash. What gives them away is they never say anything positive.....nothing. thats why they are not knocking the players anymore. They know we are getting them into place. No matter what they say, golden is a positive for UM . They project d'ono's failures onto golden to expand their ranting.

"The Gatr Trash will beat the Canes in football.:

"Gatr Trash hoops will win the NC."

"SEC will win the NCAA tourney."

"Driskel is a great QB."

"I love men."

/s/

The Blog Pig Gatr Trash.


Only one of those statements are true. Can you guess, ol' Soldy Pig? You have been owned, Pig. Again. But that goes without saying.

Isn't it time to rehash the sorry mea culpa lip-quivering limp-wristed 9/11 Gatorian American Miamian soliloquy?

HTC and Calvin, I concur with your assessments of the past problems with this existing coaching staff...which is led by coach Golden. However, I disagree with name calling, which distracts from excellent insight about how coaching has impacted the development of former players. Please remove personal attacks and continue to educate others on football.

We cannot compare Jacory with Dorsey, because they played under a different system (coaching staff) and players (all-Americans). However, we can compare Shannon and Golden, because they coached the same players. Both, Golden and Shannon failed on opposite side of the ball. Golden has a great offensive team, but poor defensive team. Shannon had a good defensive team, but poor offensive team.

From my observation, Jacory played well under the scheme, which was controlled by his OCs. Jacory never had the opportunity to sit and learn from a season veteran. Jacory never experience continuity due to changes in OCs. Jacory needed a QB coach, because he forced too many passes deep, and Shannon nor Golden held him accountiable. Jacory played much better under the last OC. Nevertheless, no one, coaches or players held Jacory accountiable for his ill advised throws. Jacory had a great career, and he competed every game.

As for my thoughts on Dorsey, I reviewed his films, and yes he experienced some bad games. The bottom line, he never made the same mistakes to force the defense to play numerous snaps. Dorsey threw the ball away, and the players around him held him accountiable too. Dorsey was a flat out leader and released the ball early to his player makers.

Now, can we all just focus on the current team, and provide support for our existing coaching staff and players.

HTC/Calvin

Jacory couldn't hold Dorsey's jockstrap. Blame Golden for considering Prnn State but Shannon was never offered another HC job even by FAMU while at UM or after.
Where is Jacory now? Where is Shannon now?

Enough said. Stop muttering nonsense and reminding us of the biggest and most overhyped failures in history of the program.

Lets go Canes!

JAcorry is a playbook holder in canada. Third string. bench warmer. Which is what he should have been at Miami/

Problem is Shannon made a deal with the Harrises and "promisd" that he would start as a freshman in order for noodle arm to stay at Miami. Recall he was being recruited all over the place.

Then dumb a55 Marve ( anotherr Florida Mr Footbal), screwed up so Shannon had a perfect reason to get Noodle arm lob thrower play time.

Calvin- Did you sign up for Obama Care yet? do you know you have a 6000 copay when you get your breast reduction??


The sheer racism and hatred towards Golden is hilarious- calvin aka X, uses words like imbecile, moron, etc when referring to the current standinghead coach of the University of Miami. That type of ghetto ignorant rhetoric is useless in modern society.

pieces of sht cut from the same mold

Mario's I agree with you about the assessment of the canes and the future. When are we going to allow the past be the past. Jacory and Dorsey were descent qb's. Both ran different systems. Shannon didn't hold any players accountable for their troubles. Hell he destroyed bridges with local coaches in this hot bed of players. Why? Because he was set on his ways and it showed. Central has one how many state titles and national championships in recent years. Shannon didn't want you unless you were from his Alma Mater Northwestern. Look at how others have benefited from Shannon's ways. After he left, it all came out. yes he wanted guys to who were from well to do homes and good up bringings. You cant have those standards in a place like Miami. He was trying to be the Duke Blue devils in college football. Most kids today don't have a stable home. Is that a reason to not recruit a kid. Jadeveon Clowney was raised by his mother. Now, he will be the first pick in this years NFL draft. Golden had to come in and rebuild those bridges. Shannon is the linebackers coach at Arkansas now. Look, we all know the problem with Golden, D'No!!! I believe the defense will be ranked in the top 50 this year. We will go from giving up 500 yards a game to about 400. After this year, he will be like, "oh there was improvement and no need for change!!!!" Really!!!! I will bet anyone that we give up 500 yards to the cards on opening night.

From the vaunted NW recruiting class only Jacory and Spence had great work ethic and both had the least natural talent for NFL. Butt they we're too small. Spence is making it but his lack of size makes him injury prone. Aldarious and Forston should be starting in NFL but they listened to the Calvins and HTCs who told them they were so great and wasted their talents.
Now Calvin is criticizing that Duke is getting bigger and that Golden is packing too much muscle on them. Some people can't help themselves and you can never win with them. In the end you fall where you belong but stop trying to bring down young kids with you and the people who are trying to help them

holmie, don't forget to add Corinne Brown to that trashy list.

The extent of examining the minutia of everyone but Al Golden continues. Every time one of you tit suckers get on this blog you use it to make excuses for Al Golden, or examine in detail someone other than him.

Show me those great comeback wins against any great state or private university, not coached by the only major program coach worse than Al Golden. Show me the great win from the start to the end, against any team that was great for just one year. Or a team that is continuously great for years, that Al Golden has coached any team to a win against. Show me a win against any team that was considered a top thirty team at the end of the year. Just show me where you have proof that you are sucking the tit of a coach that has a win that is worth all the excuses you make for him.

Instead of examining the smallest details of those you like. Or examining the smallest made up details of those you do not like.

Calvin, Nash, HTC, and all you other negative POSs. Get a life, job, something anything to make better use of your time you have left in this world.

You guys want to hail Jacory Harris like some God, like he was better than Ken Dorsey. That right there tells me all I need to know about you guys. Dorsey beat teams whether they were having their best years or worst. Harris beat all big time schools during their down years. End of discussion on that. Harris is in Canada. Leave him in Canada.

Coaches... You really want to compare Shannon to Golden. Golden has cleaned up the mess that candy randy left and did so with nothing left on the shelf in regards to team depth. Cleaned up every aspect of the garbage he landed into when he got here and is still here. His record has improved steadily while Shannon's bounced around. Candy randy had what we call losing seasons with the top rated recruited class and Golden has been improving with a lesser recruited class. Do I agree with EVERYTHING that Golden has done, no I don't but I'm not going to write him off so quickly like many here. That's what people tried to do with Butch Davis and he had harsher scholarships reductions than Golden did. Everyone forgets that Coker's team was Butch's team. Butch created that team piece by piece. Coker just took all of the credit. Butch left because UM and him couldn't come to an agreement in terms to contract. UM has always been cheap when it comes to paying football coaches (I'll keep it at football since I'm unaware of cases in other UM sports). Face the facts, Golden is here and has a contract till 2020. If he has to rebuild the program brick by brick then so be it. So many people want now now now and it's better to piece it all together and have a complete and perfected product. I said it before, Rome wasn't built in a day.

SUPPORT THE TEAM OR GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE. GO CANES!!!!!

Like some of this stuff I'm reading in the Herald today.

"• Golden told WQAM that injured running backs Joe Yearby and Duke Johnson will take snaps this week in individual drills — a controlled setting — with no contact."

"• The coach said receiver Malcolm Lewis had five catches for 103 yards on Friday."

"• Golden said safeties Deon Bush, Jamal Carter and Dallas Crawford have jumped out to him more than any other defensive position group in camp, and that linebacker Raphael Kirby has been “the most consistent guy.”"


When talking about the LBs and Kirby being the most consistent guy kind of has me thinking a bit. Regarding DP52, maybe he's so set at his position it's just not worth mentioning him because he owns it and there really isn't anyone that will compete to take that black jersey away from him. Soon there won't be an "OR" next to Fig and Armbrister. Fig will win that spot out right. Hope to see Grace get some real playing time. Young and Blue will get their chances.


HERE'S TO A GREAT UP COMING SEASON.

What happend to Ladarius Gunter? He started all of last season and is nowhere to be found on the 2 deep or the injury list. What's the story?

Hearing reports of a gaytard punter is transferring to The U. Justin Vogel didn't see any playing time. RFr, 6'4" 211 lbs.

When was the last time we took a Gaytard and turn him into a Cane and excelled more here than trailerville? Oh that's right Brock Berlin. And he beat UofFelons. With help from Devin Hester and Sean Taylor along with many others. History is fun.


GO CANES!!!!!

512CANE

I don't know to be honest what's with Gunter. I heard something a while back and can't remember what it was. I do remember back in late 2013 against UVA. It was a neck injury and he was taken by helicopter but not life threatening. All I can find is that he is injured and can't find what it is. Sorry.


We will go from giving up 500 yards a game to about 400. After this year, he will be like, "oh there was improvement and no need for change!!!!" Really!!!! I will bet anyone that we give up 500 yards to the cards on opening night.

Posted by: Gaturd-hater

------------------------------------------------------

I honestly believe we'll be better than that Gaturd. Dno HAS to now he's under the microscope now and BETTER damn sure improve a helluva lot, and no more getting gashed by teams that we should be walking the dog on. I may be wrong, and if so, I'll eat crow, but I think the D will show MAJOR improvement. If not, then he for sure HAS to go. Having said that, UL will NOT roll on us, especially w/out TB. I think we win a close one.

typo's gang, I mean KNOW, has to KNOW, lol. I had a hick moment.

This blog and many comments are out of control. This is the reason that I prefer Golden and his staff to just keep their comments sealed about....PRACTICE. Who really cares how big, strong, and power a player has developed since the end of the year? Who cares about what Dorsey and Jacory did in the past? Golden was hired after Shannon was fired, and his job was to improve the team...not culture. I care less what Shannon, Jacory, or Dorsey are doing, but I respect their efforts as CANES.

The bottom line, we still have problems with position coaches and recruiting. If the administration is not going to pay for a top coaching staff, how can we expect to compete with the state universities and their untraced funds to recruits? Coaches and money will improve the quality depth of the team...not Utough and talk. Just win the coastal, conference, and NC...recruits will come. Otherwise, the U cannot compete with state universities with huge budgets. Let's all be respectful and realistic, the U does not have the best Xs or Os from the defensive and offensive side of the ball. Golden has been given a pass, because of what he experience with the NCAA. NCAA impacted recruiting...not ability to coach (adjustments based on talent). We are what we are on film...big, strong, slow, mis-tackles, and cannot make changes during a game. But...I am still a fan, and purchased by season tickets...again.

I'm with you RHC. Good post.

RHC is hitting all of the points today. Good stuff.

I hope the rumors are true from the other sites that No'D's contract will be bought out at the end of the season no matter the record. Hire Butch Davis. If Golden does leave, Butch will take over and we'll be on our way. Everyone saw what Butch did here and what he left here. Everyone say what he did at UNC. He made them competitive as hell in comparison to previous years. Even took Giovani Bernard right out of St.Thomas from under us and used him to run over us. Butch can recruit and he can coach either side of the ball. I'm all for that.


2014 CANES ARE COMING!!!!!


Agree with RHC also, except I don't think we are slow at all.
Maybe our game speed is not what it should have been and there were legitimate reasons LAST YEAR. We all knew we weren't gonna win it all last year and getting bigger was and is important.
Guys have to learn how to carry the extra weight and I believe game speed will pick up this year.
Our roster is filled with speed burners at the skill positions who are now big enough to hold their own as well.
So I am optimistic going into this year, not that we are going for the National Title but you never know.

War, beef, war, competition, war, war, war, bloviation, projection, beef, theft, misrepresentation, jealousy, inferiority complex, superiority complex, lies, more lies, now speech that is only capable of speaking lies--I guess practice makes perfect. More war.

This is your history and culture in a nut shell--real simple to see why U are indoctrinated with hate, competition, and only think, sepal and act out lies. Straight puppets. keep attributing sentiments and beliefs to my comments that I *did not* make for example: that Jacory is better than Dorsey or that Shannon is a better HC than Golden or that I insult people or name call in my posts which I do not if U care to just read. See I have conviction that stems from my own brain and not the television and print media. I can also articulate myself without them.

The proof and impact of my posts can be found in the responses they received this morning LOL! No one's name was used, but the shoe fit and the arrow hit every target right in their hearts. Y'all don't hate any other blogger, your beef is with yourselves--IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN--just check history! U hate the truth and the playing field must be slanted in your direction for U to stay afloat--on this blog and in life in general.

"In life, either U be smart, or U cheat" Its as simple as that. Stop cheating yourselves and read a book, your skin color doesn't innately download information and knowledge into your brains--this blog proves this much lol!

Again, a persons ability to garner employment is not solely determined by his or her ability or prowess in their respective field.

Keep ignoring facts like this one: Only one fired black coach has been rehired in that same capacity in THE HISTORY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL LOL! Exposure for sure…again. Y'all can say what U want and be as naive and gullible as U like, but everyone aint dumb.

I can't criticize the current coaches coaching, but U can criticize a four year removed 3 ring Canes coaching????

Dudes see a divide between D'No's defensive philosophy and Golden's defensive philosophy despite Golden's own words to the contrary?? But they don't see a divide/separation between Shannon offensive philosophy and his need to have two different OC's during his 4 year tenure LOL!

That was Shannon's offense, not Nix's or Whipple's, but this is D'No's defense, not Golden's (despite golden saying it is)

Shannon and Golden are defensive coaches, whose defense was better? Does defense win championships? Who recruited Golden's best offensive players--the ones that have carried this team the last 3 seasons? Who coaches their specialty better?

Golden is a defensive coach by trade/training and experience, but "this is Golden's offense and NOT his defense"! Y'all are pathetic liars.

Take a pill man. Why don't you just sit out the next couple of plays.

Not to ride on another man's jock, but that was spot on exemplary blogging.

As a self actualized man, the key to stating your strengths, is accepting your weaknesses. HTC is the class of this blog. He can drop the microphone on many of his post.

I don't think anyone isn't thinking it's not Golden's D, but the fact is, AG is NOT going anywhere for a while and Dno isn't under the same contract, so he can be removed if the D doesn't perform this year, if AG will finally do it. However mentioning a '3 ring coach' is somewhat of a misnomer, as he won those as a (position coach) NOT a HC, so you can't really compare or use that as a comparison. We ALL know it's AG's D, but again he's not going anywhere, Dno is replaceable.

NObody said you cant criticize Golden, HTC. Nobody said you cant criticize Donofrio. But its the sheer malignancy o fyour rhetoric that makes your true colors come out. The nastiness towards Golden started on year one- so dont give me any of that junk.

And if youre going to say dumb stuff like Jacorry Harris was great, or like cool cat that Dorsey was overrtaed, then, you got to take the responses like a man.

I for one like Golden and what he has done thus far. Do I wish wed compete for the NC last year? or do I wish theyd beat FSU? yes. Am I happy with some of the defensive performances? No. But bottom line, the offense also has to take the blame- Stephen Morris couldnt manage a drive to save his life. It was either bomb bomb bomb and 3 and out or INT. It was ridiculous and manifested clearly agains UL. You all never gave Donofrio the props for the defensive perforemance against UF. Morris and the OC nearly lost that game.

Golden doesnt have an indefinite pass. But he has been HC for 3 seasons. All under the specter of the NCAA. The man gets a pass just for that. And for not bolting

Calvin and HTC live inside the heads of too many bloggers. All I ask is that some of y'all save that energy, insight, and passion for your analysis of the coaching staff as opposed to another blogger

Comments like "have you signed up for Obamacare" and dropping names like Tawanda brawley tells me that you aren't focused on the team but particular bloggers. Besides there's a time and place for those conversations and it ain't this blog

Now to football, we all know the honeymoon is over. We know the DC is on a short leash, and another defensive performance like this past year will have Golden on the hot seat as well. You can make compelling arguments for and against Golden, but at the end of the day all that matters are the resUlts.

P.s. - I hope Golden doesn't eff up the uniforms
