UM Canes coach Al Golden, word for word on today's Atlantic Coast Conference spring wrap-up

There was no significant news delivered by football coach Al Golden on today's ACC spring teleconference. But I transcribed it nonetheless (So, did the ACC, and it appears we both finished at about the same time!).

Here it is, for your edification.

OPENING STATEMENT BY AL GOLDEN: “We had a chance to sit down with all the student-athletes on the team individually. We’re getting ready for exams. Guys will get a little break and then we’ll come back for summer session and obviously get ready for the 2014 season.”

 

Q: What units and players most improved from start of spring to end?

 GOLDEN: “I don’t think there’s any question on offense, the running back position and tight end position made a great deal of progress. On the defensive side we probably made the most progress really in the secondary and then our depth at linebacker made a dramatic improvement clearly with the development of JaWand Blue and the arrival of Juwon Young and Darrion Owens.”

 Q: What’s your confidence level in the quarterback position after the injury to Ryan Williams?

  GOLDEN: “High. We’re not going to change what we do. We need to do a really good job of establishing the running game and keeping it simple and doing the things that we do best, getting into more third-and-manageables. We had way too many third-and-longs last year to possess the ball and convert. Clearly, the two young men that we have here on campus right now can do it and the two that are coming in will also have an opportunity to compete.”

 Q: Is Kevin Olsen the guy right now? Is that undisputed?

 GOLDEN: “Yeah.  Kevin finished ahead of Gray Crow coming out of the spring and whoever is at the helm for us on Labor Day night [against Louisville] we’ll have confidence in and we’ve got to rally around. We’re not going to change who we are and how we operate.”

 Q: With spring as a whole, what did you take away as the things that maybe the team improved the most on as you head toward the summer?

 GOLDEN: “I think we improved a lot on our tackling on defense. Even in the spring game I thought our tackling was good. We developed the depth that we need at certain positions. Positions that jump out for me are safety, linebacker, wide receivers – all of those guys improved from a depth standpoint. As I said multiple times during the spring, this group came to work everyday. They had a good focus, they’re not a team that screws around a lot. They pretty matter-of-factly got down to business and got a lot done during the spring.”

 Q: What’s your assessment of the receiver position?

 GOLDEN: “We’re making progress. We don’t have the total numbers we would like. Most programs have 10 or 11 guys on scholarship. We’re not there yet as the result of what we’ve had to go through here the last couple of years. Certainly there are five or six guys emerging that really could be a starter at any given point. I’m anxious to see how that plays out over the summer and then in training camp. There are a number of guys there who have started and who very well could be the starter depending on how the competition goes this summer. Those guys have done a good job.”

 Q: What have you been talking to Ryan Williams about as far as when he’s hoping to get back this year?

 GOLDEN: “Everything they’re telling me, everything is going really well. He hasn’t had any setbacks yet, which is great. Again, it’s clearly going to be the doctor’s call. But his rehabilitation is going really well right now and knock on wood it will to continue to do that.”

 Q: As the ACC looks ahead to its spring meetings, it sounds like the eight-nine debate on number of conference games is going to be front and center. How do you feel about it?

 GOLDEN: “Whatever we do we need uniformity – uniformity in terms of crossover opponents; uniformity in terms of out of conference opponents. I’ve been in favor of going to nine. I think it would help balance our schedules. I like the way the league has grown and the new membership clearly is going to make us better. They are very attractive markets that have helped our league out. I’m in favor of playing nine if we can. We’ll see how it develops here in the next couple of weeks.”

 Q: So, you’ll see more people in the league more often – so a young man, say, who comes to Miami would get a chance at least once in his career to play a team in the Atlantic Division. Is that your primary motivation?

 GOLDEN: “The primary motivation is to make sure everybody is playing the same type of schedule more than anything. It’s balanced. Clearly there’s a great disparity right now in out-of-conference play – not just between the ACC and other leagues but within our league. We need to all understand better what the parameters are and what it’s going to take to ultimately get into a playoff. It’s really hard for us as a head coach or as an organization or athletic directors to make those decisions on the schedule when we really don’t know all the parameters that make it up.”

 Q: Wanted an update to see if you’ve had a chance to talk recently to quarterbacks Brad Kaaya and Malik Rosier and gauge how their progress is going as they get ready to get on campus soon?

 GOLDEN: “They’re busy now completing all the things that they have to do to graduate and to make the transition, which is never easy for anybody. Their focus is on that. Our focus is right now assisting them to do that and making sure that transition is as seamless as possible. Once they get here then we’ll start talking about football and those things. But both young men are bright. They both take care of business off the field, which allows them to really have complete focus on what they need to do. We’re excited for them to get here. I think it will help move our program forward and create the competition that we need at that spot but we really don’t have a lot of interaction at this point.”

 Q: Are you about to get any senior transfers? We had heard about a kid named Justin Vogel from Florida punting-wise, and if there might be any at the quarterback position, some upperclassmen that don’t have to wait a year to play?

  GOLDEN: “This time of year we always have our eyes open and are looking for guys that can help improve our team. We’re clearly not in the situation that we were in a year ago when we were just looking for enough guys to get us going. But I think clearly at this point we’re looking for guys that can improve our team and we’ll evaluate each one of them.

   “In terms of certain guys that have already decided they are coming here, until they’re ours and are registered I’m not allowed to comment on them.”

  Q: Does that include the quarterback position, or can’t you be specific?

 GOLDEN: “Again, I just think in general if there’s a young man out there that is leaving a program for whatever reason and has interest in us, we’re going to examine him, just like we would do for any position. So the quarterback is no different.”

 Q: Any changes in the roster we should know about, any additions or subtractions?

 GOLDEN: “There are no changes to the roster right now. If those come up we will release them accordingly. In terms of if a guy is going to leave or another guy wants to come in, until that actually happens it’s impossible for me to comment on it.”

 Q: The biggest way your team has changed or developed over the spring?

 GOLDEN: “I just think this was a team that was really focused and improved and there was a lot of individual improvement which resulted in team improvement in a lot of respects. So, it was a team that took care of business off the field. Hopefully we’ll continue that trend, avoid distractions and just continue to improve. But I think overall there were certain aspects of the game we needed to improve both positionally and then by unit. I thought we had a very productive spring relative to that. Ryan Williams’ injury not withstanding we stayed very healthy through the spring, which is a credit to our trainers, student athletes and coaches.”

 Q: To train a team to go no-huddle, is that something you really can only do in practice or can you start in summer conditioning workouts?

 GOLDEN: “It just depends. Just because you’re no huddle, doesn’t mean you’re up tempo. So, it just really depends on your communications, how verbose they are and whether or not you want to be that team. There are just as many teams that are successful huddling these days. It’s really just a function of what you’re trying to achieve. If you’re trying to snap the ball early then clearly that’s going to take a little bit more work. But if you’re just going no-huddle to have the ability to vary your tempos and slow it down if you want, then that’s a different story.”

Got damyum, i'm pissed but you can see why his pops was real pissed and going off, this is what they envision our football players to look like, take a look at a 3 year player going into his 4th year from the defensive side of the at the 1:16sec mark!

Cal....

One too many Muscle Milks.

How you go from the mop at the under armor game as a speed rusher to a dtackle?

Chad Thomas we praying for you playa!!!

21-16

Just to confirm that the 4 yr NCAA cloud had no effect on recruiting, nor helped LSU, BAMA, FSU, UF, Ville, Wva, Rutgers, Clemson, UNC..all who snagged 5* lifelong Cane fans due to the uncertainty surrounding out program. Do you think we beat Duke and push FSU to the limit with Bridgwater, Watkins, UNC's GIO, 50% of the UF Dline and secondary, Oleary, Benjamin (FSU), and the rest of the U commits or lifelong fans from the 305 who bailed or top notch commits who wrote us off b/c of the NCAA? Now that we are unencumbered re: recruiting, I expect us to have top 5 classes every year, keep 4&5*'s home... which will get us back to where we need to be.

Great win by the Canes baseball team.......let's go for the sweep!!!!!!!!!

Muscle Milks LOL!

Thanks for the laugh Mahoney, that was like a classic SNL clip!

Donald Sterling…I mean what can I say…exposure, and this is just the beginning.

30-13 and 17-5 in the ACC our baseball is the hottest in the nation right now. ANOTHER grind it out and NEVER give up win to take the series against Clemson in 12. As thirsty said, let's get the brooms out. GO CANES!!!!!

there is no place for bigotry in modernsociety and it must go both ways. If youre black and youhate white people in 2014, then youhave no right to cry racism. It goes both ways. Same thingabout jews, muslims etc.

Miami does occasionally run a four man def down linemen front. And when it does, it stops the other teams. Then, morons goldie and d'o change to a three down lineman front and a zone NO pass coverage. And the other QB has all day to find a receiver and throws to a wide open receiver and converts third down to a first and ten. For three years, we have been watching this crap coaching and lack of defense.

then, if that is not bad enough, goldie and his OC throw a flat pass or a hail mary pass, both of which are wasted downs. And no one seems to be able to understand why the Canes can not pick up a first and ten in just the two remaining downs and are forced to punt and the Cane NO defense is back on the field.

Then, you have no life in the players and a moron sounding an air raid siren on third downs and the Canes wearing halloweenie costumes and going through the motions of pretending to be players.

Whew, good thing there are no racists of any race or ethnicity in the NBA!

CF72 you think we sometimes run a 4-3 and when we do we stop the other team?

Wow, what a great implied idea. the Canes could see how they do in their 4-3 scheme and compare it to other scheme results. Brilliant.

I'm sure they never would have thought of that--you know, being white guys from the north who played in the big 10.

And for the 50th time, we play 4-3 far more often than we don't. Their are numerous examples of great Ds with both those schemes.

Miami does NOT run the 4 down linemen defense constantly which is what is needed throughout the game!!

goldie and this staff does NOT work the players hard enough.

The stupid uniforms they have now are not as sharp as the old uniforms. The stands are empty.

HERE IS THE KIND OF MIAMI FOOTBALL THAT IS MISSING
WITH THE MORON COACHES THEY HAVE NOW!!

^Moot point. This "there is black racists" is a such a weak and highly irrelevant point especially considering its motivation, Sterling's comments (Sterling is Jewish and thus up under the umbrella of being white).

How many times dies race and power have to be explained to dudes before the understand the difference between proaction and reaction. The difference between having the power, wealth and influence to tangibly act on how U feel and the reaction someone has to the formers ability to do so in regards to their upward mobility-- politically, emotionally, physically, mentally, economically, and socially).

U purposely confuse hate of the white supremacy ideology that used "race" (created by Carolus Linnaeus) and justified the European colonization and imperialism of the entire planet. Its the reason I've been involuntarily and reluctantly labeled "black" and purposely been made ignorant of my true ethnicity. But U know yours and instead conform to being called "white". "White" means not black. Being black means that U are a product of a mass human theft, genocidal slave trade that had your people raped, murdered, forced illiteracy, bred, etc… Stolen goods, no offer to return, 330 years of free labor, no apology, no reparations, just "integration". All legislated, facilitated and legally indoctrinated by The United States government.

If U were black, would U hate that system? There's no movement or phenomena based in hating white people as their individual selves. We have been exposed to white leadership and individuals in every function of every social institutions since those slave ships docked until this very day. All we've exposed to is white dominance and we have collectively accepted it consciously and in the collective sub conscience. I've been a Miami Hurricane fan before a black coach was even a possibility. So the thought that someone hates Golden because he's white is asinine at best. Our whole American experience and fan hood has been established under white coaches. Its not even a thought, but that doesn't prevent me from noticing disparity and a lack of acumen. I noticed a lack of ability with Shannon and said it myself.

A sense of entitlement and innate moral superiority must proceed a feeling racism or being a racist. What has black people been through individually or collectively that provides them that psychosis????

Please stop your smoke screen efforts, how U feel isn't justifiable and the ill-informed thought that, "yall do it tooooo" is juvenile at best.

It doesn't go both ways. Our American experiences haven't gone "both ways".

Stop aligning yourself with "whiteness" and U won't feel the need to defend its functionality. Just be Irish, Italian, Polish, Jewish, French, Russian, German, Portuguese or whatever U truly are..it actually tells more about who U are (history, language, culture), rather than who U aren't.

The REAL Miami Hurricanes, a real defense with four and more down def. linemen, LBs within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage, man to man coverage, IN GREAT cardiovascular condition, throwing the ball down field (not flat go no where passes), traditional Cane uniforms instead of halloweenie costumes, FULL stadiums, Canes winning.

Says it all goldie, d'o, coaching staff. Are you morons listening????

http://youtu.be/tLNnzLpAPwM

At the abolishment of slavery in 1865 black people owned 0.5% of American wealth. In 2013 black people owned 0.5% of American wealth.

Black people collectively own nothing and have no form/way of institutionalized control. U have never been discriminated on due to your skin color and no "black racist" or "black racism" philosophy as ever affected your ability to self-actualize nor get your needs met. Cut it out lol.

New thread. Please!

I see why they hate you bro. LOL

Keep up the good work.

HArriet
Spare us the history lesson and the self promoting pseudo intellectual dribble

Looks like you like to read Wikipedia a lot

That there are black racists is NOT a moot point.

Andneither is thepoint, that our current black preesident should notbe making comments publically aboutthis untill ALL facts our out, or are you a firm believer that everythng that TMNZ piublisjes is the God honest truth??
The president of the US is everyones president- Black, White, Asian or whever. Hes not just your president, bro.

By the way- Youmust spent a lot of time marching in DC or maybe your granddaddy did

Bc you and Calvin and cane72 ought to learn the humanity, gentle nature and rationality of MLK-

Calling Coach Donofrio a moron, or a whatever (as Calvin and Cane72) often do- and youlaugh and agree with them is 100 percent the opposit of \what the true icon of theCivil rights movement would do- he would do things with respect. Something you "morons" see sid youlike that? have no clue of.

If we want to tal;k UM football lets-

Stephen Morris, accoridng to Barry Jackson doesnt seem to impress manyscouts
Neither do many of UM's players on D?

How is that given that their recruiter and initial head coach was such a genius on defense?????????

Ill tell you why- because the Randy Shannon culture of entitlement and laissez faire coaching nearly destroyed this program. Stephen Morris was Jacorry 2,o and both were busts. Major league busts

Stephen Morris heave it and hope style of play gave Miami the WORST timeof possesion in cfb. Do you know what does thatto a defense? Youever played Defense? I have. A linebacker. And it DEMORALIZES YOU BY THE 3RD Q. Thats why its a team sport- The O has to do their part so the D can do theirs. Morris would have Miami on 2nd and long and third and longway to often ans was a veritable DRIVE KILLER

The rest of those... well, look at their pro day numbers and youll see why Miami is being passed up as an NFL farm school like it used to be- youve heard the term NFL U right??? Well- Golden is changing that. The recruitingand coaching that Golden has done is preparing these kids for the NFL. Calvin says Duke is too fat- well, if Duke doesnt put at least 20 lbs of muscle, no matter how quick he is, the NFL will eat him up.

Youall just are too blind inyour hatred of Golden and Donofrio to see any different-

WHO DOES THAT REMIND YOU OF?????

Canes sweep clemson!

Do herald reporters take the summer off?

Have I ever made a point that President Obama was my personal or black people's President before? Where are U getting these straw man arguments from Fox News? Our President isn't black either, he knows his ethnicity which is Kenyan and American (Hawaii).

Lots of filler in that post that were aimed at insults I suppose??? They all went under my head.

First U try to clown "marching in DC", then try to use the supposedly acceptable negro MLK (only acceptable because he chose to turn the other cheek and be the bigger man in many situations) who actually "marched in DC". U are one confused baboon.

Have U ever heard MLK's speeches most prior to his death? His tune had changed considerably and was akin to Malcolm X's. But people never hear about these speeches if they never read…"WHO DOES THAT REMIND YOU OF?????"

Youtube MLK speeches, "A Time To Break the Silence", "Our God Is Marching On", "The American Dream" delivered two years after the "I Have A Dream" speech, MLK says that his dream had turned into a "nightmare". Look up, "Mock Eulogy",or "Letter To Coretta". U know nothing about King except what someone has made available to U…so hush up. Listen to those speeches and see if MLK remains your iideal assimilated negro.

As far as football goes, no i don't want to talk it because your football opinions are diluted with your bigotry and shortsightedness.

And finally Kinetic asking for reprieve in the form of a new blog as if thats gonna stop his eyes from reading the truth here. Keep running U are part of the problem.

"An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" -MLK

"everywhere" includes this blog.

Cal....

HTC,

Gotta ask what it means to be "black" here to you HTC?

Ethnicity doesn't completely define the upbringing, experience, and social integration of what it means to be "black" in America. You have African Americans (a misnomer, I know) born in this country that do not identify with main stream black America, and believe they are validated by how well they are accepted by caucasian America. These same people look disparagingly at their own culture and make every effort to distance themselves from their ethnicity. Is that "black" in your eyes?

There are also people who were born in other countries that, despite their ethnicity, proudly identify with and carry the social stigma of being an underserved or underrepresented minority in this country. Are they not "black"?

Oddly enough most Americans on a whole do not differentiate between African, Caribbean, or Black Americans. Likewise, it's all one shade to the racist, and discrimination in this most recent instance, with Donald Sterling, was equally directed at all people of color.

I think it's sad that black folk are discriminated against uniformly based on phenotypical traits but try to segregate themselves into tiers of blackness by creating divisions of ethnicity.

Message to blacks of all ethnicities: THE RACIST DOESN'T CARE WHERE YOU COME FROM. YOU'RE JUST BLACK AND LESS THAN HUMAN TO THEM!

So having said that, please clarify what it means to be "black" in this country to you, and why Barack is not "black", to you...

Andneither is thepoint, that our current black preesident should notbe making comments publically aboutthis untill ALL facts our out, or are you a firm believer that everythng that TMNZ piublisjes is the God honest truth??

In all fairness to our president we don't know what he knows. His security clearance is rather high and although the facts may not have been fully revealed to the public, he may have confirmed the authenticity of the recording.

TEEECCCHHHHH!

So boring. Same pseudo nonsense from the same posters. No one cares about contrived racial opinions. Try football. And try it without race or talking about previous coaches. And Calvina, try to get off the weight nonsense. You didn't gain weight between 18 and 22 I guess but real men do.

Posted by: GatorKillerCane | April 28, 2014 at 01:30 AM

Excellent post.

While you maniacs go back n forth and back n forth about racism, RS, shoulda-woulda-coulda, our BASEBALL team is the HOTTEST in the NATION. Won 18 of 19, and simply on FIRE. People were calling for Morris' head earlier this year, and he said be patient we have a young team, and he was RIGHT on the money. We now have sole possession of 1st in the coastal with a series against Alabama St coming up, and as long as we don't get lazy, we should sweep them as well. Keep it rolling guys and GO CANES!!!!

PS... Miami Herald WHY in the HELL are there NO stories about our baseball squad?????

"When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk."

I think it's sad that black folk are discriminated against uniformly based on phenotypical traits but try to segregate themselves into tiers of blackness by creating divisions of ethnicity --Mahoney Pearson.

My point was that Barack Obama doesn't have to prescribe to being "black" (an involuntarily given label usually accepted in the "black" community due to not knowing ones true ethnicity--which actually provides intrinsic identity and cultural belonging. I don't own "blackness" and that sentence that U are choosing to analyze instead of the other 30 I wrote, wasn't an attempt to exclude or ostracize Obama. If he wants to recognize with being black thats totally up to him, we all know that he is certainly being treated as such (the despised "other"). My point was that the label was forced on Us, its not ideal (we'd rather know our ethnicity), and that he doesn't have to recognize with it if he doesn't want to. He's black because of the way he is treated. If U are bi-racial (like Tiger Woods), U don't have to ignore one aspect of your ethnicity to assume the "black" race categorization (One-Drop rule). They don't have to accept or cower to that white supremacy based label if they have further knowledge of their roots.

Furthermore, U didn't deserve a response (I initially wasn't going to). U read the one sentence and purposely took it in a literal context to create your argument despite my previous attempts to explain that being labeled black is not ideal and was not voluntarily conceived by "black" people themselves.

U and others wholeheartedly believe that U aren't a part of this problem in America but U are and its exposed by the fact that U CANNOT (do not have the ability) to conceptualize and make an initial/proactive post condemning racism and racial oppression or calling out oppressors. U continue to ONLY critique, nit-pick and complain about the responses/reactions to those oppressors behaviors by those who are affected. U don't deserve a response because U aren't sincere, U are trying to find holes in the argument of those "underserved and underrepresented." Thats weak, I don't want to be questioned by U our anyone else who hasn't taken a proactive stand against the actually criminals and perpetrators of racism and racists acts.

They can do whatever they want, BUT my reaction to it better be perfect. The reaction better be non-violent, eloquent, balanced, and galvanizing.

Zero admonishment, accountability, or proactive outrage to the actual perpetrators though.

Keep judging the reactors instead of the motivation behind their reactions. No division of ethnicity or race was created or indoctrinated by "black" people. U only see utility in judging their reactions to what has been imposed upon them though.


Only a few posters capable of writing that many (irrelevant) words on the Canes blog and not mentioning sports. Need a like and a dislike button.

To be "black" in America (in *my* opinion) is to be a stolen (history, culture, language, religion, identity) human-being repurposed as a free labor force commodity and the intended *visually*, *pre-determined* socioeconomic loser.

Posted by: GatorKillerCane | April 28, 2014 at 11:04 AM

And U continue to read every last one of them. U love to make sense right? Well why do U continue to read the posts of people U will not agree with? Why read the comments of an "idiot"?

U can't think for yourself so U use your energy to deter dialogue of those who can.

Just skim thru the irrelevant looking for sports. Results in lots of skimming. Why not post about race on some race blog, or do you do sports there?

There are many Donald Sterlin types in the UM administration AND on this very blog!!

The QBs need a full-time coach!!!!!!!!!! Why have a TE coach? The success and failure of any football team offensively is directed at the QB position. Look at the past successful teams at Miami, Florida, and FSU. If I have average or above average QBs, then I will hire a QB coach.

The late Earl Moral was the QB coach for Jim Kelly, Kosar etc. Dorsey had a QB coach too. Jacory and Morris needed a coach...not an offensive coordinator. Our young QBs really needs a QB coach, because they will experience the same difficulties: trying to make plays that only work in HS. HS you can get away with being one dimension, but college and professional defenses will expose weaknesses and tendencies. Just review the following comments by an NFL scout:

Nolan Nawrocki --- in his outstanding NFL Draft preview book (Triumph Books) --- said Morris is a fifth- or sixth-rounder who “struggles to handle pressure and presses to create plays. Eyes drop to the rush very quickly and vacates the pocket prematurely. Makes too many head-scratching decisions and makes his receivers consistently work for the ball. Has moldable talent for a backup role and enough raw tools to pique the interest of a patient quarterbacks coach.”

LOL, do U have a television? This is THE topic of discussion on every sports website and TV network right now.

Not to mention that this is the off-season and these off topic discussions come up when there's no Canes news to report. Funny and ironic that I still have never initially brought up race on this blog before. Judging reactions again lol!

RHC is not complaining, but instead just leading by example.

Delusion continues. Someone may have mentioned the word race months ago and tubby now writes incessantly about it, "but didn't bring it up". Sure, that helps.

Good points, RHC. Morris never progressed. He always did better just running the initial play call, no matter what the D was in, than turning to the sidelines and trying to change it up. Only worse decision maker I saw last year was Driskell.

I'd be surprised if anyone even spends a late round choice on him.

HTC- The bigot is you, Malcolm. If you dont wantto talk football, without injecting hatred, name calling (on OUR U coaches), then gtfoh with that hatred of yours.

I agree with the post above- you rant and rave a lot, harriet, and all of it is self-serving and proselatizing. You sound like Al Sharpton- a lot of smoke everyones ---sses and not much substance. Stop with that. ENOUGH.

As for the canes, Miami is LUCKY. YES LUCKY to have Al Golden. Like him or not, HE is THE coach of the University of MiamiHurricanes. And I for one have noproblem with objective, smart criticism, game time decision critiques as well as praise, but NOT calling him moron and other names that Calvin and his posse of thugs have called him (Cane 72, Harriet).

Nice find RHC,

Absolutely would love to see a good QB coach come in.

SMO's tendencies perfectly described. Wow.

Miami is lucky to have alfraud???

But yet Morris REGRESSED under his leadership!!


Lol

Miami is lucky to have Alfraud??

But he has chosen his BFF over the good of the football team??

He tried his dayumest to get to Pedd St. then tried I cover it up!!

Lol

Every media member that covers the canes on a daily bases thought he was outie if he was offered the job. As we know he was never offered so now were stuck with him. NOT lucky to have him!!

U don't have to say the word "race" to imply or discuss it. Guess u didn't see abc Mahoney, Calvin and others recent comment on the sterling situation, in which I've been responding. I hope U are acting dumb.

SEC, prove what U say. When have I name called the coach? We do know that U name call, so practice what U preach. I don't sound like sharp ton because you've never heard my voice. And U can't get or experience my substance just being exposed to my words on a sports blog….moot point. Lumping all the bloggers that U don't agree with into a "posse of thugs" proves that all my sentiments have legs. In your eyes we are all one poster instead of individuals. Calvin and I don't agree on Stephen Morris and don't agree on Ryan William's skill levels.

Just more proof of that urge to categorize and not consider individuality. U don't own morality or classiness and U don't innately personify ethics. History doesn't suggest as much. The objective proves the exact opposite, so have fun in the subjective bubble where U stay in a perpetual state of being "lucky" and owing someone unearned allegiance. Sucka mentality makes the world turn.

Calvin is back with the same old racist spin on AL . What no mention "the GREAT RANDY SHANNON" who cant get anything but a positions coach job elsewhere. Calvin what you know about sports you can put in a thimble and have room for the Chinese army! I will say you do know racism!

Quick question, how many black coaches have ever been re-hired as a head coach in NCAA football? It's obvious what you are, you can't post without mentioning Shannon.

Enough of this B.S. you need to show your loyalty to the Canes like I do.

I have a U tatoo on my back and a 10" sebastian tattooed on my calf. That is the definition of a fan(fanatic). Also have a manvave shrine to my school bigger than most gator followers trailers(440sq.ft) with 3 tv's . I also have traveled to bowl games, not all but some. What do you do for your team other than talk crap on blogs using partial stats to fit your agenda?

i'm a big d-bag with a tattoo and by back and calf. seriously, i'm not making this up.


Forgot to add that I also have a tatoo of Jacory Harris on my left butt cheek and a 21" portrait of Shalala tattooed on my right one. Also I forgot to plumb the manvave shrine to my school and it can get pretty smelly there but I'm used to it and since I'm always alone, who cares. I also have traveled to Jacksonville every time I feel like getting out from my country style of living and going to the big city. For years I thought I was going to Miami instead and that is why I started following the canes, then when Jacksonville landed the Jags I realized I was never in Miami after all. But no matter I still folow the canes and come to Gatorclause daily to vent my daily beatings from Gator fans around the Jax- Bunnel corridor.
Most of the time I stay inside my smelly cave watching my 3 TVs and wondering if I should ever get indoor plumbing. Nahh.

Now how bout that Cane baseball team?

There are many Donald Sterlin types in the UM administration AND on this very blog!!
