    I don't necessarily like what he is saying, but I can understand it to some degree. But then it finishes off with this:

    “I don’t look at it and say, ‘We need to get to this number of wins,’” James said. “The goal is to win the Coastal. To win the Coastal, they’re going to have to play some great football here because there are a lot of teams that want to win the Coastal. Everyone’s in position.”

    There is no defending that statement. Even when we are down, our goal should never be to just 'win the Coastal.'

    Even if it is unrealistic to expect to contend for a spot in the playoff, it should still be a goal to do so.

    Disgraceful. They probably tell their kids that the goal is to not get all their lunch money stolen at recess.

    That's golden and the administration lowering the expectations bar so they won't have to fire him. That's precisely why our fans are throwing a temper tantrum in public with the banners, because they fear if the administration is left to their own devices we'll end up a bottom feeder program and they won't do shit to stop it either

    He is, but I also feel bad for him. He is in a shitty situation.

    He is in charge of an athletic department that is way behind its peers in terms of facilities, has a fanbase/alumni base that hates the direction of the football team but doesn't step up and donate the money needed to pay for firing the coach/improving those facilities. Add in that the administration basically tells him that he is on his own when it comes fundraising while at the same time tapping out the few big donors the school has for more upgrades to the school itself. Spoke to an administrator at the business school today. The business school is getting renovated again. They completed a full renovation in 2007. It hasn't even been 10 years and they are ripping a bunch of shit out and replacing it.

    The guy sucks at his job, but he was also given a shit hand to deal with.

    I hear you. I'm just saying that he is in a no win situation. The real problem with UM isn't Al Golden and Blake James. They are the symptoms of the administration not giving a fuck about athletics in an age where athletics are an arms race and it's not enough anymore to just have a coach who can recruit and a tradition of winning national championships.

    A real program would have never hired either clown.

    Winning Saturday would be a massive set back for the program.... I'm talking bo pelini tenure level set back, sad part is Pelini is ten times the coach golden is.

    It's just insane they've lowered expectations so much for the program beating Clemson in their minds would somehow give him a pass for everything else. The fact that he's still the head coach and somehow has a chance to still be employed without winning w title, making the playoff or winning the ACC is horrifying on so many levels

    The guy who covers the Cane's for the Palm Bch Post said in a radio interview he's never seen the team this focused, intense and fired up during practices.

    To be fair, the players can be as focused as they want, but the coaches will find a way to fuck it all up.

    I remember during the end of the Coker and Shannon eras that we had 0 talent. Right now we have a reasonable amount of talent and piss poor coaching, which makes watching this team so frustrating.

    This is as good a team as we've had in Golden's era and perhaps in a decade. That being said, the deficiencies of our staff negate any competitive advantage we have going into a matchup with a team even half as talented.

    Can't believe you guys are in here talking about a win.

    Its DeShaun Watson vs. Coach No D.

    This team lost to Cincy.

    It will be over by the 3rd quarter.

    Will you people fucking relax, we aren't going to win

    Clemson is actually kinda good and will probably destroy our oline

    Our defense situation isn't even on question, they're scoring 40+

    I don't know about that. Kaaya is playing at a much higher level. The defensive line is light years better than last year, and the secondary too. The big drop off is at OL/RB, but Kaaya is playing so much better that it negates a lot of that drop off.

    Its not being used properly but the defensive talent on the field is much improved from last year.

    The defense is better? I'm not even sure how people judge the defensive talent on this team our defense is pure shit across the board. The dline has looked better because every now and then they're forced to changed the scheme this season. Hell am16401 mentioned something about that earlier and chickillo's play and comments at the senior bowl probably forced their hand as well.

    I think he just means the actual talent is better. There are 3-4 explosive pass rushers, Burns another year older and better, Elder emerging, etc.

    And yet the defense will most likely be worse statistically when it's all said and done

    Right, but I think the original point was *talent level*

    Of course it's being wasted. That's just assumed at this point.

    I'd take a natty in exchange for 10 more years of Golden. That sorry fuck can't even finish second place in the coastal though. SO yes beating Clemson would be a massive fucking set back because all he'd have to do is make a bowl game and they'd let him stay.

    The blatant favoritism this staff continues to display, especially on the defensive side of the ball, is infuriating. From Jimmy Gaines to Kacy Rodgers/AJ Highsmith to Fentress last year, and now Crawford.
