Doc gooden is definitely a top 5 crack smoker IMO..

GO CANEZ!!!!!

From The Dinich at ESPN:

Spring answers

1. Depth at running back. The running backs had arguably the best spring of any position group and proved they’re still deep, despite the loss of James and not having Cooper, who is recovering from a torn ACL. Lamar Miller, a redshirt freshman, was tough to bring down in the open field, and had good speed. Storm Johnson, a true freshman who enrolled early, picked up the offense quickly and ran hard. Damien Berry showed the same form he had at the end of the season when he finished strong, and Mike James returned to running back from fullback.

2. Deeper at QB. What a difference a year can make. After both backup quarterbacks transferred a year ago, this position has the best depth it’s seen under coach Randy Shannon. A.J. Highsmith, Spencer Whipple and Stephen Morris all moved the ball this spring. Highsmith seemed to be the front-runner for the No. 2 job behind Jacory Harris, as he took most of the first-team reps with Harris out.

3. Defensive line shines. First-year defensive line coach Rick Petri’s group was one of the Canes’ bright spots this spring. The defensive ends go about three deep on each side. Adewale Ojomo, who missed all of last season with a broken jaw, is back, and the tackles were solid.

More form Heather at ESPN:

Fall questions

1. Wanted: tight ends. Miami only had two tight ends this spring, but the Canes will add four in the fall, including Chase Ford, a junior college transfer. Richard Gordon and Billy Sanders will finally get some competition. Gordon has the most experience and he’s a senior, but he only played in one game last year. He was granted an extra year of eligibility and should have a bigger role this season. Sanders, a redshirt freshman, was on the scout team.

2. Transition at center. Tyler Horn isn’t a rookie, but it's unclear how he'll adjust to his new role in taking over for A.J. Trump. Horn was the top option at center this spring with true freshman Shane McDermott, an early enrollee, behind him. Horn has been there for three years, and it’s his job to lose.

3. Stuck in the middle. Who will take over at middle linebacker? Miami is still working out its depth issue here. Kylan Robinson started to emerge there in the spring, and Shayon Green was another option. At the end of spring, Colin McCarthy was still at strong side and Sean Spence was at weak side, but Shannon could make some moves to get the best group of linebackers in there. That could mean McCarthy moves to the middle. In the past two years, Shannon liked to put an older player there (Glenn Cook, Darryl Sharpton), but McCarthy played the majority of the spring at his usual spot. The return of Spence and Jordan Futch from injuries should help Shannon figure out the right combination.

j.w.

Edge is one of my all time favorite Canes... duh!

I saw that Edge donated like $200,000 and that is the biggest donation ever at Miami. Didn't Ndamakang Suh just pledge like 2 million to Nebraska?

They should pass the hat at the next alumni meeting and get Randy signed.

Aqua

Great list, nothing but ballers. Going foward is gonna get good.

Immediate reaction: how could you put Chuck Ward over Doc Gooden?

Gooden was actually dominant in his pro career, Ward was average at best..

orange 'n green in the vein

Ward would have been what Ron Mexico was supposed to be as an NFL QB if the NFL had gotten over it's typecast QB stereotype in the 90's.

solarcane

hi aqua,

I mentioned this in the beginning of the article

"Everyone has a reason a player should be ranked higher or lower, and most points are justified.

This time will be no exception, as off field actions tend to reflect positioning on the list again."

my reasoning

Dwight Gooden is a fantastic athelete,
had a fantastic pro career, but sucked at life choices. get suspended for cocaine twice within 60 days vs Charlie Ward mentoring kids and trying to be a good example from a freshman in college until right now, swung their positions.

thanks for the input as always aqua.

The NFL teams want to win games. They would put a Martian in shoulder pads if it gave them an advantage. Their "stereotype" has to do with height and arm strength/release. A good college QB doesn't make a good pro QB.

solarcane

ogv,

I think of that highlight where Charlie Ward drops the football and dribbles it back up into his hand on the run, and I wonder to myself how special he could have really been in the NFL.

A good college QB doesn't make a good pro QB.

When you're constantly acting as if you're better than everyone, sometimes you need to be brought back down to reality - that your sh*t really does stink, without the airbrushing, the AVID editor, the keg sized makeup dishes, etc.

You know when a woman looks her best and you can tell what you have in front of you? No makeup, face just washed, hair back in a ponytail or held up by a headband, wearing some track pants/yoga pants and a little t-shirt

Alot of women are so transfixed on how bad they look b/c they're not wearing makeup or their hair isn't "did" ..... that's part of the problem right there, the way they think

These pics of these women right here, tell the truth. Not the Cosmo, Vogue, MTV, Vanity Fair, Loreal, etc. ads or mags

Little girls and some women are insecure as it is, when they see these women all faked out on the covers of magazines or in movies - some feel they have to do whatever it takes to look like them .... the "fake" them

I see it everyday at the station. Certain anchors or reporters - then hear it from other peeps I know about just how good they look. I say, hey, anytime you want to roll into the station, just give me a call and I'll show you the truth


I didn't have to add my commentary on how these chicks looked, but I did for the hell of it

If anyone thinks I was tearing them down, ask yourself this .... was I wrong in what I said?

Just like Chris Rock said, you can boo at me all you want, but you know I'm right

86Cane

Solar...I love me some Rohan! Saw him with Sapp at the UM-FSU baseketball game last year. Very cool guy, very down to earth.

Can't say that about Sapp.

solarcane

Sx,
That was exactly why I sent you the update on Celebs without makeup
Not to cut women down, but to bring attention to superficial females that have their beauty built and paid for by a crew rather than have received it as a natural gift from God

86Cane

Edge, Bruce and Gooden I like on the list.

Ward and Brown? Not so much.

solarcane

Just like Chris Rock said, you can boo at me all you want, but you know I'm right

I know a guy that gets booed whenever he says I'd rather be right than popular.

Some women can pull off looking better with no makeup on than wearing kit.

solar - exactly what you said about the superficial females

I know a lot of women who look so much better without wearing the entire store of Sephora on their face

The natural look is the best ... maybe with a touch of some sunscreen if anything at all

Charlie Ward could read a defense. Not that he was some kind of wunderkid, but his athleticism was freaky, and he had enough of the tools to make himself into a Steve Young type of talent at the very least. If he hadn't taken such a strong stance on the 1st round or don't bother he would have redefined the position enough so at least McNabb wouldn't have been BOOED being taken 3rd overall.

Six, does that mean I can't wear the shirt I had printed up with LL's pic on the front and that Ali basterdization on the back of it out in public or do I just send you a royalty check and we call it even? LOL! To be fair to Captain O, Reid and Kardashian are strictly B or C-list at BEST in my book so if he's blanking on them it isn't that surprising. Even Brittany is in danger of going B-list at this rate. She's like her generation's Tiffany with worse choice in breeding partners. I haven't even heard of a reported Reid sighting in at least a half decade since her boob popped, but I do stay above the club where Lohan ran over that guy in her car leaving at 2 AM a few months ago, drunk wack-job that she is. I mean, you're Lindsey Lohan, at least get a HOT girl that can play CD's one after the other as a girlfriend, there's only about 250,000 of them in the greater LA area after all! Sometimes the math just doesn't add up.

If I had to describe the Puerto Rican from the block in five words or less it would have to be: constantly insipidly annoying these days. She's been like that since she started the singing career for me.

bg1906

Let me stir things up a bit.

We have what, 91 players and need to get down to 85 right?

We have a huge class this year but need to be very picky with only about 15 spots next year right?

Why didn't Randy take a few LESS players this year so that we could take a few MORE players next year? AND not need to "cut" any players this year.

Just a question. I'll check back in later with the answer.

Posted by: DZ8 | May 10, 2010 at 04:38 PM

Easy answer. Because you take what you can get when you can get it because tomorrow isn't promised. Also if he delays that's a year set back in depth. You HOPE when a class comes in that majority of them are RS-Soph before they are really ready to contribute. There are exceptions both ways, but a year or 2 of development before they are counted on is desirable.

I'll tell you one reason.

He didn't want Storm Johnson running up our azz with GT for the next 4 years.
He cost GT their best back, and got himself an insurance policy all with one scholarship

Six | May 10, 2010 at 09:27 PM

i can agree with this, six.

don't have anything to do with the world of glitz & glamour and most of the women i'm around don't try to reach that type of "beauty".
so it's not a topic i think about.
but . . . in the usa competition plays a major role and it's possible that many of these celebs feel like they have to be "done up" or they'll move quickly down the viewing scales.


to the other topic regarding the top 50 . . . i have no opinion on whether you & solar are right . . . but i do know that i'm extremely impressed that you two would spend so much time digging out the information on so many athletes; weighing all the various points as far as place on the list; then putting all the info together for each player to present to us . . . well done.

i'd have been satisfied with: "john cane, born in florida, played hellacious high school football, even better college football, and all-pro at the professional level; never beat wife & kids; made an ultra-cool aftershave lotion commercial; married a woman who looks good in a t-shirt, sweatpants & no make-up"

Ungar

Solar, I think DZ8 doesn't have a problem with Storm Johnson (at least I hope not), but picking up projects like Gaines and Taylor with scholarships that we don't have seems wrong.

And signing 29 in one year is high as well, when you want to average out to about 25 per year. Just sayin...

Ungar

As for Gooden over James:

James = Hall of Fame candidate.
Gooden = not so much.

I will look into the list in more detail (and congrats on giving a lineman some honor, a list of just QBs and RBs would have been disappointing), but that was my first reaction when comparing the two players, separate from off-the-field issues.

DZ8

OK so we used ONE scholy to keep GT from having a good back... good job! I got no problem with Storm being a Hurricane.


"Because you take what you can get when you can get it because tomorrow isn't promised." from bg1906

Agree with the rest of what you say about wanting the players on the field to be going into their third year for the most part. The part above has a tinge of desperation to it, don't over react I said a tinge, slight touch, of desperation. The goal is to have about the same number of recruits coming in every year. Not huge classes one year that'll need to be replaced a few years down the road, all at once.

I know we didn't have ideal balance when Randy first took over and only next year (if the freshman corners and tight ends show positive signs this year) will we finally be able to pick a couple of the best at each position. It just seemed to make sense to not reach (if we did that, it's still TBD) to fill all available spots this year (and possibly have to "cut" some players who are already Canes), when we will have such a small class next year.

DZ8

i'd have been satisfied with: "john cane, born in florida, played hellacious high school football, even better college football, and all-pro at the professional level; never beat wife & kids; made an ultra-cool aftershave lotion commercial; married a woman who looks good in a t-shirt, sweatpants & no make-up"

Thank Coker for Randy having to recruit the way he has been. This next recruiting class will be the last class that's out of balance.

Who's to say Gaines and Taylor won't make it? You? LOL! Sorry but I'll put my trust in the coaches. I have a feeling both of these kids will be studs. You forgot to mention Brown as well. I think he's going to be a good one too.

An ideal class isn't 25 players. If everything goes the way it's supposed to in recruiting our classes should be around 17-20 recruits every year give or take 3 for players moving on to play elsewhere or what not.

I'm glad you're not running the program.

But because of these lopsided classes we'll have a bunch of kids leaving at the same time in the future. It's just a comment and I trust in the coaches as well, but if we have to "cut" someone who has put in the hard work for the last few years so that we can get that 6th LB that "probably" won't make a difference for three years anyways, I'd rather save the scholly for next year.

It's not unheard of, we saved a few schollys last year.

And for the record I'm glad the coaches aren't basing their recruiting on Johny 5 stars... would rather that they feel strongly on a kid than some recruiting site feels strongly about the kid.

Anthony Chikillo

Denzell Perryman
Rob Hankins
Jabari Gorman
Dallas Crawford
Albert Louis-Jean

Wildcard – Maybe another DT or perhaps another safety

j.w.

I like that class, bg, a lot. O'Leary is really hard to figure out right now, isn't he? If he wants to play soon and eventually in the League, UM offers a lot. With two relatives from other D1A schools, and Florida presumably offering the world, this one is going to be interesting to watch.

Yes, I did. I am the guy with the time machine so I can go in the past and type before you. Now I gotta go back and take credit for Gin and Tonic's catch on Charlie Ward.

Nah, I will let him have that one. Nice Catch!

Fighting, I didn't say they wouldn't "make it", I just said they were taking up scholarships that we won't be able to use next year. If you feel that 17-20 is a solid number, then you should be even more distressed at the 29 than I am. 23 was the right number for this year, not 29. With LA and Hopinger getting two more, next year is gonna be a small class, smaller than anyone else.

And no, you wouldn't want me running the team, I would end up grabbing 42 year old weekend warriors that haven't used up their eligibility so we could go out drinking after the game. These kids are too young to drink, so too young to hang out with.

Two words: Heidi Montag

This is the best part, proof positive that too bad she couldn't have had surgery on her brain to open up some paths to intelligence ...

"We all want to feel attractive, so who is anyone to judge me?"

Um. The WHOLE REASON you got the plastic surgery genius, is BECAUSE you were worried how people were judging you or seeing you in your mind

No, it's not b/c of what you think you saw in the mirror before you went all Tupperward on your body - it's what you think other people would see and judge you on


She's already started the road down to being a complete train wreck by the time she's 35. Guarantee that she'll get a reduction in her boobs later on, saying "I don't want to be known for my chest, I'm more than just that"

Six, I'm VERY tempted to get some of that bimbo bet action from you for the very reason you stated about Montag in the top of your post: She got all that done to jump start a recording career. Hold on:

ROTFLMFAO!

Anyway, so she's dumb enough to think that getting every plastic surgery in the medical handbook is going to improve her chances of making it as a SINGER, obviously not much logic taught in the hills of wherever she hails from in Orange County, so if anything I'm betting they get bigger later, not smaller. Plus, when the next five face surgeries turn her into a Santa Monica Blvd. tranny special by 30, she'll need the bigger boobs to take the emphasis off the face work. But then again, that's a logically progression and that airhead has already shown a lack of even a tenuous grasp of logic, so really, she could go anywhere and I won't be shocked.

elliott

Take my fiancee for an example. She never has to wear makeup and her face is flawless with radiant beauty. When she wakes up in the morning she looks like a million bucks, no lie. That is when U know that you have a truly beautiful women, when they can throw on sweats/tee shirt, no make up and go out by themselves and still get hit on. Being comfortable with yourself and how you look also defines beauty. Being able to just wakeup and go that is true beauty. It took me several years to understand this because I have been so caught up in the Source magazine, XXL, Maxim, and etc...

six i get what you're saying about the silicon barbie dolls out there and i totally agree with all your points.

what i think is important though, is that the heidi montags who are constantly getting their body remade are very sick, sad people.
they have a similar problem to the anorexics . . . their body image is very f*cked up and they need lots of therapy instead of diets & surgery.

and six, one other thing . . . something about the usa supports the neuroses of these kinds of people . . . the land of cher & michael jackson; of anorexic models; of "jackass"; extreme sports; wierd & hateful talk shows . . . of everyone remaking their "image" . . .

i'm going in all directions . . . guess key words are "image" & "extreme".

mr. troutman - your (pre-season) list looks fine to me. don't think there's much to argue there.

orange 'n green in the vein

Trouth, if Hank fixes the drops he'll be HOF material. DVD will hang on for a while until he loses two steps then he'll be done but he can play, if Deon could shy from contact and be great, DVD can be serviceable at worst.

Gin,
good catch brudda!

I read that bio at least three times and never caught that.
I thought Ward was born in
Tallahassee/ Thomasville every since I had ever head of him.

After going over hundreds of guys Ward is at least the third one that slipped past me on where he was born.
I got the other two off and replaced before their article posted, but you got me on Ward

Thanks for that gt

AQUA, Ward is OUT lol!

Esteban

Hank will be in the NFL. like OGV said if he keeps working on the drills he did with Duper and keeps the drops to a minimum he'll be Dwayne Bowe stud (not last year Dwayne Bowe). Don't see him being Andre Johnson stud in the league, but still can be a stud.

Hey Solar, Thomasville is only 20 miles from the Florida line so its possible that ole Chucky might have at least been conceived in Florida.

but we have our poker in the fire with... Kiehl Frazier (Arkansas) also.

cAPTAIN OPTIMIST...HE MAY NOT BE THE BEST EVER BUT PEOPLE LIKE HIM:

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines -- Manny Pacquiao. Congressman in the Republic of the Philippines.

The current WBO welterweight boxing champion and seven-time title holder scored the most personally satisfying win of his life in his birthplace in the country's national elections early Tuesday morning, soundly defeating a heavily favored candidate, Roy Chiongbian, from an entrenched billionaire clan to win a seat in the Philippines Congress representing the province of Sarangani on the island of Mindanao.

By doing so, Pacquiao, 31, becomes the first professional boxer to hold national public office while still active in the ring. After his victory in the Philippines' first fully electronic national elections was deemed largely official by early Tuesday morning, Pacquiao felt confident enough to declare victory over Chiongbian, 61.

Solar, Six, Heres a possible replacement for Charlie Ward.http://www.angelfire.com/blog/jrdscwgrl/tater.html

PhillyCane

Ne one watching the Muck Bowl documentary on NFL Network?? Awesome. Micanor Regis, the Blur, Jenaoris Jenkins (I know, but he shut down TB in the first half), and other studs.. very fun to watch

Six

NativeCane - dude, I couldn't even start to read that page b/c of the color of the font (white) and the background (super light baby blue)

My eyes are all jacked up now b/c of it

Six

Ungar - the 50 that solar and I did ...

He has some people on his list that I don't have on mine, and I have some people on my list that he doesn't have on his

In addition, the ones that we do have similarly - are in different order. I think maybe two or three tops, we both have ranked at the same spot

That post I put up earlier, that had solar's rankings so far .. had my rankings and player right next to his, but in parenthesis

solarcane

native,
yea I'll consider Tater a peoples choice write in candidate

Six

solar - since Charlie Ward is DQ'ed (disqualified, not Dairy Queened) ..... I'd like to put one of the guys off of my bench onto the list

**** Tino Martinez. Born in Tampa, attended Jefferson High School here, went to my alma mater University of Tampa (where he was a stud on the baseball team)

Gold Medal winner in the 1988 Summer Olympics, where he hit 2 home runs and 4 RBI in the final game. Silver Slugger Award winner. 2 time All-Star. 4 time World Series Champion and was the 1st baseman for those Yankee teams that won it in '96, '98, '99, '00. He replaced an all-time Yankee great, Don Mattingly - you know how hard that was for Tino to step into that 1st Base position after "Donny Baseball" left? He hit 2 monster home runs for the Yankees in the World Series ... one was a grand slam to take the lead in the '98 Series, after earlier in the inning, the Yankees tied it. The second big homer came in '01 against the D-Backs, when the Yankees were down by 2 runs, Tino came up and tied it with a home run in the 9th. In 2005, Tino hit 5 home runs in 5 consecutive days, while with the Yankees. Tino was given the "Pride of the Yankees Award" in 2007. And he is a truly good guy - very rare to find

Here is my new list in (parenthesis), next to solar's

50. Tebow (Tebow)
49. Willie Galimore (David Eckstein)
48. Harold Carmichael (Andre Johnson)
47. Rick Casares (Jerome Brown)
46. Vince Coleman (Harold Carmichael)
45. Danny Wuerffel (Vince Coleman)
44. Devin Hester (Tony LaRussa)
43. Anthony Carter (Lou Piniella)

40. LeRoy Butler (Tommie Frazier)
39. Bob Hayes (Devin Hester)
38. Tony LaRussa (LeRoy Butler)
37. Tommie Frazier (Ray Bellamy)
36. Sean Taylor (Mitch Richmond)
35. Lemar Parrish (Ottis Anderson)
34. Frank Gore (Doc Gooden)

29. Isaac Bruce (Bob Hayes)
28. Edge (Derrick Thomas)
27. Doc Gooden (Lomas Brown)
26. CWard - DQed (Sean Taylor MEAST)

The Fab 50 Have It Your Way Spot

When we wind into the top Ten you guys will see I left #10 on my list blank with Canespacers' Choice written there.

It will be awhile before we get to the coveted top ten places, but rest assured you will have your chance to promote your number 10 guy.


For instance soup picking Sean Taylor or perhaps solarcane as his #10 all time favorite...
Wait. It would have to be top 5 before he would write me in , I know that for certain.

Six and I collaborated heavily on this project together but like he said our lists are different.
I believe our very top five elite Fabulous athletes are all the same.

solarcane

Six Tito it is,

I'll rewrite my list for the, yea that's right, 13th time. And you know I aint lyin.
