thought I read that U of Miami fired Al Goldin, following Miami's 58-0 drubbing at home Saturday at the hands of Clemson....
I expected this would happen while viewing (TV) the first quarter of the game. Golden was on very shaky ground anyway. The attendance at the game was dismal. It appeared the modest Clemson traveling contingent had more fans there than Miami.
Miami was such a desirable ACC target in landing back in 2003. They have not won the ACC Championship yet, and have not been particularly prominent in the ACC Coastal Division. Miami crowds will moderately show when the fb team is doing very well and a big-name opponent is being hosted. But with sustained mediocrity, their students and other fans have lost the enthusiasm. They can't rely on the glory days in the 80s and 90s and committing more violations to carry them forward. Miami is seen as being in the very best hotbed for recruiting of local athletic talent.
