    Anyone have the displeasure of listening to Al Golden's 17 interviews repeatedly playing on every S Florid sports talk show this morning? Paraphrasing some of the things he said:

    He said his D great game. Their conditioning was superior...and they were in position to make plays all day. He said turnovers are called takeaways not giveaways...said UF has out- recruited UM the last two years and UF is deeper defensively and Stephen Morris played great despite our D.

    He said it was a great game for all 115 recruits and 35 HS coaches in attendance to watch. Said it'll have a tremendous effect on alot of those kids. Said he would like to thank the students for an amazing college atmosphere. Thats why kids come to play at UM.

    He harped on how good his D played and said to disregard the 400+ yards of offense and focus on the 2.8 ypc they allowed and how the goal line stand was basically their 6 th takeaway...

    Anyone else listen to anything he said? It was very difficult for me to listen to it for as long as I did. Its excruciating to listen too. Thank God I wasnt in the car long enough to hear any callers. Ugh

    Don't see much wrong with anything he said. Is he supposed to say, "Jeff Driskel was our 12th man on defense today?"

    A tremendous effect until the next 5 home games when the only attendance is fans disguised as bleachers.

    They still had hundreds, if not 1,000+ plus open seats in the stadium for their best attendance record. Great college atmosphere

    Gators mistakes gives him the platform. Winner takes all. I would make the Offense have to listen to these interviews.

    This is Miami's version of our win over FSU-- only since they're not equal to FSU (as we were last year) the giveaways aren't enough to pull away but instead just enough to win.

    I've got no problem with him. They pulled it out and of course he wants to highlight the positives from the win.

    He's right that their D was in position to make plays and he's right that they did a good job against our running game (except when Showers ran the ball). But I'd hardly say they played great. The idea is to stop the other team, not let them get in the red zone 5 or 6 times and hope they make a mistake.

    Let him talk, UM won the game, he's entitled. I just hope those HS coaches and recruits saw that if the two teams played 10 more times we'd win 9 of them.

    Miami is in deep trouble as a program.

    Seriously, not much reason to hate Al. He is trying to clean up a mess and loves his kids. What's he supposed to say?

    That was big win for him and his program.

    He should have sent chocolates and flowers to our offense. That's the only reason scUM was in the game much less winning.

    Screw Golden and his team.

    Part of playing good defense is also keeping the other team out of the endzone.

    Opportunistic. That is what the Miami D was during the game. A very disappointing Monday.

    No problem with his comments. Winners get to talk and they havent had much to celebrate in a long time. Might come back to bite him tho if they cant follow up in the ACC. The few Cane fans I still talk to are pretty happy with the win, but acknowledge the early Christmas gifts.

    Not so sure about that, MOI.
    We just gave them life again.

    Just like a generous good Samaritan :)sick:), we gave them emergency defibrillation and CPR. They have not left the emergency room however, and things are looking grim. :dead:

    As a miami fan...I have to laugh at all your comments..its funny it really is

    Big bad UF gets beat by lil ole miami and their 12 fans...

    we never needed 85K fans to beat teams we just play the game...

    Good luck the rest of the year I hope you can manage 10+ wins...I really do

    sorry for trolling...

    Scoreboard only (and yes Moe Ron, I know scoreboard is the only thing that matters). We gave you the game, gift wrapped with a nice brown bow on it.
