SPORTS BUZZ

Barry Jackson

09/02/2014

WEDNESDAY BUZZ COLUMN The Hurricanes have been playing football since 1926, and never before --- in terms of margin of defeat --- have they been engulfed in a tailspin quite like the one they’re mired in now: Five losses in their past seven games, all five by 18 points or more.


Oh, there have been a lot of blowout losses before but never this many stretched over so few games, and it's pretty staggering when you consider the lofty company this proud program used to keep when it ranked among college football's elite. For perspective, UM once went 10 seasons without five blowout losses (1984-93). Larry Coker had only three in six years before he was fired.


And there’s this: Against teams from major FBS conferences (even including the Big East), UM is 18-16 in Al Golden’s three-plus seasons, and seven of those 16 losses have been by margins of 18 or more. His ACC record is 13-12.


So how do former Canes standouts feel today?


“I’m fed up,” said former Canes and NFL defensive back Duane Starks, now a WQAM analyst. “Maybe I have to get over there and [give] them some pointers. [Louisville] is a mediocre team. What does it say about us?”


Starks isn’t alone; other former Hurricanes reacted angrily on Twitter and elsewhere after Monday’s loss in Louisville.


Ex-cornerback Phillip Buchanon has nicknamed Golden “Folden” and tweeted: “Folden is not getting the job done as a head coach or special teams coach. Folden’s leadership was always a major issue here…. “So he brings in a few good a.ssistant coaches, but the changes should have come at the coordinator positions. When you have a lot of time to prepare for a game and your approach and adjustments suck, that’s a major problem.”


Former Canes defensive lineman Allen Bailey added: “Has to be some major changes done.”

Several ex-players took issue with the conservative offensive approach. Packers executive Alonzo Highsmith tweeted: “Gotta play faster on offense and turn the QB loose. You gotta throw the ball downfield!”


Clinton Portis: “We have too many open playmakers to not open up the field. We have to open it up.”


Gino Torretta, on The Ticket: “I would have lined up in three, four wides and then run the ball. You have to do something to shake their defense.” Torretta said there were several things UM could have done, but did not do, to make it easier for Brad Kaaya. Among those he mentioned: Screen passes for Duke Johnson.


Michael Irvin bemoaned: “They know you are afraid to throw the ball!” --- which allowed Louisville to stack the box.


At least Golden had the sense to admit today that UM played too conservatively Monday. Some former players also questioned defensive decisions. “No re-routing in this weak 3-4 defense,” Buchanon said on a Twitter rant. “We need to be more aggressive with strong zone blitzes with clearly defined zone responsibilities. The secondary is playing like robots with soft coverage and weak technique. Go back to the 4-3 defense.... The defensive linemen are in offensive linemen stance. We are not fundamentally sound on counters.”


Starks said: “If you are going to have a fourth guy standing up, send him! Don’t have him stand there in limbo.”


Warren Sapp mused, during the game, that a 3-4 defense “is covering grass if you can’t run or blitz.”


As usual, emotional Dan Sileo erupted on Twitter. “Congrats, Al Golden,” Sileo said. “Canes are now the Temple Owls.” Sileo, now a San Diego radio host who often goes overboard in his criticism, added: "Golden used the Shapiro card for three years. Team is awful."

rumor going on that aqm is suspended, not officially but something with academics

and just to show how clueless golden and dnofrio are have no idea what they are doing, having mccord a END covering a slot receive, while only rushing 3
I noticed that sh*t too...he always be standing up and pretending to blitz but then we got with Pierre Kamalu and Heurtoleu only rushing QB

the time their QB got was fu*king ridiculous, if he was better, he'd hang up 50 on us smh

more tidbits bout aqm and kiy hester

After practice, Al Golden spoke to us for about five minutes.

InsidetheU reported Tuesday that freshman safety Kiy Hester, who had to go back home to Wayne, NJ to tend to a family matter that apparently involves an illness, would be seeking a release from UM to transfer somewhere closer to home -- possibly Rutgers.

When asked about the situation, Golden said, "Kiy Hester is working through a personal problem and I’ll release that when…it’s a personal family deal. When we have resolution there, I’ll release that.”

Golden was then asked, Is there a chance he could leave the program?

“He’s got a personal issue,'' the coach said. "In deference to him and his family, and respect that, and that’s it. I can’t say it enough. I know you guys have to chase down rumors. I don’t like to deal in the rumor world. When it’s official one way or the other, we’ll make an announcement or go from there.”

As for defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad, who did not play Monday, I saw him in uniform at practice speaking with defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio.

Golden has not elaborated on the talk about Muhammad possibly being suspended for Louisville. The coach was asked Tuesday in the day-after teleconference if a report that said Muhammad did not play against Louisville "because of a conduct issue that needs to be resolved" was accurate.

Replied Golden: “That was my decision not to play him last night. As I say, with all these instances, if a young man is going to be suspended or is suspended from the University or athletic department it will come from [the sports information office] or it will come from [athletic director] Blake James. … I have a responsibility that we handle everything the right way. It was my decision not to play him. If there’s anything from a suspension standpoint we will release it to you guys.’’

I asked D'Onofrio today if he expected Muhammad to play this Saturday.

“I’m not going to comment on that,” D’Onofrio said.

I asked the coach how Muhammad is doing in practice.

“He’s doing great.”

I used to have confidence in golden. Why can't we get some of the former players to come back and coach? I'm sure they can't be worse than Coley and Coach No'd. We never make adjustments on either side of the ball and we run elementary schemes. I just want some a staff with some damn sense

Golden screwed because 70% of the former players played multiple years in the NFL and probably have more football knowledge than him.If we lose to Nebraska he'll lose the team and the cropduster will be flying over SunLife stadium.

i just want to see some changes in our offensive and defensive philosophy.. Nebraska is a good team and if we at least show something it would be good enough. i don't expect anything from this year, i just need to see movement in positive direction. defense should be k!lling dudes out there. fu*king rush everyone if it need be and stop playing zone and giving WR 10 yards to catch and gain positive yardage. im sure Howard can float with anyone and Burns got the physical skills too.

Notes

@ChristyChirinos: According to the injury report just released by Miami, #Canes WR Stacy Coley (shoulder) will be out Saturday vs. Arkansas State.

@ChristyChirinos: Only other players on #Canes IR: Rashawn Scott (shoulder/clavicle) and Rayshawn Jenkins (back). Those aren't surprises.

@BruceFeldmanCFB: Former 4-star #Miami signee Kiy Hester, a DB from NJ, has enrolled at #Rutgers RU announces.

Philip dorsett > rashad greene

faster, better hands, more explosive, comes from a great WR pedigree

NFL scouts see Miami n*ggas like Hurns putting in work...they'll take dorsett a lot more seriously than they do an anorexic a.ss Nole
