Per a story from the front lines (http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/caneswatch/2011/08/17/al-golden-um-had-responsibility-to-tell-me-about-shapiro-situation-if-it-knew/), Da U coach Al Golden is basically saying he had no idea about the Shapiro situation from U officials when he took the job. If true, this may give him an out from the coming carnage to Coral Gables. How this relates to the B1G is that in the past 3 years, Golden has been mentioned as much as Greg Schiano as a replacement for JoePa (http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/penn-state-football-al-golden-eyed-as-potential-joepa-successor-bound-for-florida-601675/). When Golden took the Miami job, it was assumed he'd stay there through a Penn St coaching search, but with JoePa showng continued signs of failing health and Schiano's "Rutgers rebirth" showing to be a bit of a facade, would this situation perhaps allow Golden to save face and Penn St admin's to grab him or tell him to cool his heels while they work out the JoePa transition this season?
this may be of some local interest
