Exactly. I personally wouldn't have even taken the interview. I'm die hard though. I will never blame a coach for bettering his own life but there are way to go about it. His was wrong IMO.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
I would've taken the interview, killed it and then at the very least be prepred to say no to the offer just for my resume because the people who say he is gone next year ave no idea because as good s MC is i think the best HC offer he ever got was Rutgers and then FIU fires you? We love him becasue he is local but if we ar a team i the Northeast or West coast you may be iffy about him so he helped himself because Saban gave the stamp of approval
I dunno, something just came to my mind. didn't Mario, stay super loyal to FIU?? He had the opportunity to be a HC in two other places and he stayed at FIU, just to get fired. If you ask me, he learnt from this and decided that maybe loyalty in his book is not worth it anymore. I'm just speculating, so don't go thinking is what actually he was thinking when he took the job offer.
Ok, well it's time to move on, It's no use crying over spilled milk
It's all about the U!
Huge cane fan and cristobal fan but to turn down offers for better positions earlier in the process to stay in Miami and help his alma mater then bolt to Alabama where he becomes a huge competitor for are best recruits. Sorry but that stings and to hear that money could be the main reason when he is still getting paid by FIU. Wasn't expecting him to be here forever but damn atleast a year.
Ima die hard to lamp! I do agree he could've went about it a different route(maybe/maybe not). AG has been saying the whole time "Some people will take the PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE". It just shows that LOYALTY is overrated to some people. AG is not from miami but has had tons of offers from other schools and turned them down. His VISION scares some of his peers and some of them don't like that competition. The reason MC left none of us know but I know AG will bring in someone just as good or BETTER! Why you leave your alma mater and a chance to build something special? I have no clue but its ok! We don't want people here that don't have THE _ in their ❤!!
Just cuz _ went to the _ don't mean _ belong with THE _!!! #CANESALLDAY
I don't get why people are hating on this guy... He has a family to look after and he's being offered more than twice, maybe three times, what he'd be making here... I think it's ok to be disappointed... So am I... But this dude did nothing wrong and I'm pretty sure 99% of us would do the same for our families and future... BTW, this doesn't have any bearing on whether or not UM hires him down the line as our HC... Just sayin'... It's all about the
Envy the past, Fear the future
D'onofrio is just a pawn. This is Al Golden's team and Al's defense. Al's the clown. Dorito's just the floppy shoes.
Does deer antler spray count as a drug? Joking. I love my boy ray Lewis to much to believe anything about the deer antlers
If I'm offered 3 times the pay to go to my most fierce competitor, I offer my company a chance to match or come very close. If they can't, you have to move. It's a very tough business. You have to make your money while you can.
It wasn't 3 times. I don't know what they paid him but it has to be in the 400-500k range range max. He has to be making 200k plus here. Double would be more like it. It wasn't the money.. It was a better spring board for his next HC gig.
Stoutland was also here for more than a month before he left for Bama. Pussy move by Mario in my opinion. Oh well hopefully Golden finds someone decent to replace him.
people weren't mad at Stoutland because he didn't leave for Alabama a month after getting hired..
Carter and sometimes Bill Baskin
haha, jinx. great minds think alike.
Nor did he play here. I was genuinely happy for Stoutland.
This is just embarrassing for MC.
How you doing?
Never should of taken the job f he wasn't going to stay atteast a year... See ya u bum..,, no loyalty in this world ..none..
I'm just shocked the mf is unemployed and Golden lays his hand out to help. Meanwhile, while talking to The U about a potential opening; Alabama and I believe FSU were trying to persuade him. He declines and takes the U job. Then a month later says sorry Al I'm going to Bama; lol wtf is that? Pussy move like I said. His word means nada, f him. I would take Shannon back before I brought Mario back. At least Shannon is a man of integrity.
Truth. Best way to describe my feelings.
how has mc ever proven he is an ace recruiter? who were his big successes besides ty? certainly had a few quality players over a few yrs.
fiu program did develop 1*-3* talent for a three yr period. outside of that short period what? fiu completely failed last yr after assts were plucked from the program.
He's a good coach. TY fell in his lap bc the big three said he was too small.
He always dominated down there. Just "too short" according to the big 3.
