He probably mad about jordan cunningham and skai moore and he's somewhat right. We should have did a better job recruiting skai moore and handled the Kirkland thing all wrong which may have costed us matt Thomas and look what we're doing to Quincy Wilson now his teammate smh and look how we're stacking our chips if the coaches don't think because of the way we're doing the recruits before him he's not going to want to come

how do u know it was handled wrong ?
If we WIN they will come
Golden needs an advisor to his recruiting efforts in SoFla. These kids need their ego's stroked more often than a hot woman. That's not AG's style... but he doesn't have a choice.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
I don't know for certain because I'm not the staff but from what I hear it was a communication issue.Could have been both parties fault, but I definitely believe it was something things I'm sure the staff wish they did different and could have did different to avoid the whole mess
We don't "let" them get away..... They leave to be away from home and get paid (in some cases). Kids ain't what they were 20 years. Heck, miami didn't even have to recruit back in the day. Golden's getting the job done though.
...........Even sponge knows its about the U
beyond aggravating...These South florida kids believe everything should be handed to them. AG offered the best out of south florida.. they bailed, I don't believe in "stroking" egos...were The U ...you come to us.
Al golden better start winning more games PERIOD
Only the greats play here
I agree they will come if we win that goes without saying. But I believe they can come now at winning 7 games. We have to flat out do a better job recruiting. I do think we are last to the party a lot. Drag on offering a lot of kids just to offer them wayyy late after the build great relationships with other schools. Basically I'm saying it shouldn't take too long to know if you want the kid or not. Like with Stacy Coley we thought it was something wrong with him grades/ attitude just for us to offer real late and try to recruit him harder saying we want to make up for the late offer. We can get kids especially our local kids if we just get on the early and stay on them.
More bs that just plays into Luke and St. Ice's crap campaign. There was no communication error. Al didn't "let" anyone get away.
If Thomas and Kirkland wanted to be at UM, they could have committed at anytime.
Miami is not letting kids get away
They are leaving...simple as that
Lol unfortunately us miami fans are the only ones who feel that way. Those who don't bleed orange and green just see the 7 win seasons, sanctions, horrible fan support and a dominating sec conference which we aren't apart of. So we have to recruit that much harder to fight all of that fighting against us. It is no more we're the U so we don't have to beg. We're starting over from square one now and we have to build ourself all the way back up if we're going to get to the top
Lol it's the same thing man
its really not
if these kids want to leave, they are going to leave and UM nor our coaching staff can do anything about it
its obvious Matt Thomas was going to leave no matter what...we came in third to FSU and USC...he had his mind made up that he was going to leave town because he wanted to get away...nothing Miami coaches can do about that so stop blaming them for what these kids want in a college

Times have changed. Not every kid wants to stay home. Sure, it's AG's job to convince them otherwise, but maybe they just want to experience something outside of South Florida since they are given the opportunity to.
From Luke and ice butts yo his mouth. He is just regurgitating negative crap fed to him.
We need to put show him true truth.
University of Miami Class of 2013
THE KIRKLAND SITUATION DID NOT COST US MATT THOMAS! Christ! The kid was all FSU. You guys act like our coaches just go to their schools and say, "Hey kid, you got a scholarship........well, seeya later."

Yes it did
First off let me say Central is a great program with a great coach. Hope to see more Rockets on the UM roster soon and perhaps Telly on staff.
As for the Kirkland situation, I believe the Kirkland situation was due solely to St. Ice. I believe he steered him away from UM. Thomas I think was likely always an FSU lean. St. Ice certainly didn't do anything to deter that. The entire Booker T situation to me, seems rather obvious.
On one hand, you have a staff of seasoned and experienced recruiters at UM with ties up and down the coast. On the other, you have someone who has been publicly critical of UM and Golden since he was given the pink slip (and yes, Ice was let go. Politely, but he was shown the door all the same). Also, not enough can be said of the timing of Coley's hire. You don't think Coley, as Thomas' primary recruit, told Al a few things that were going on?
Golden, Coley, Cristobal, Kehoe, Barrow, all guys who are either top-notch recruiters and/or have deep ties to programs throughout south Florida. Does anyone really think it was a communication issue? And if it was, that is easily remedied with a phone call. You don't go on a radio station and open fire - least not if you are trying to be helpful.
I think once Coley came on staff he opened Al's eyes to St. Ice's games.
Either way, whats done is done and this topic is played out.
Of course we let talent get away. We self-imposed visits and scholarships, that's exactly what happens when you do that.
So u must be the one who got in his feelings and handed out down votes lol. It's cool tho anyways that was just my opinion and you don't know for a fact if he was all fsu and us fans never will know but I do know we had a lot better chance before the Kirkland situation. Just like Tracy Howard was all UF until the end tell me Tracy still would have came to Miami If we pulled Malcolm Scholarship.
