From the previous blog:

Welcome To The U: 4-Star WR Malcolm Lewis, 5'11'' and 170 lbs. Fantastic playmaker, electric; a huge commitment for UM.

New UM verbal commitment 4-Star WR Malcolm Lewis has offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU, West Virginia, and others. Huge news. Maybe Malcolm Lewis' verbal commitment to Miami encourages his teammate CB Tracy Howard to join as well

Dallas Crawford - 5 time scout player of the week on both sides of the ball

Dallas draws RAVE reviews from Da Skreetz who he credits for preparing Miami for the GT running game as the scout team QB.

Crawford has played MULTIPLE position at practice on the scout team. Al likes this and he likes this A LOT!

I'm not going to get excited about recruiting until the Shitz hits the fan. Then and only then, we will know who truly wants to be a CANE!!!!

Ohio_Cane

LM6 is currently at 1,108 rushing yards. He has a chance to get to 2nd all-time at UM and break Edgerrin James' record of 1,416 yards in a season from 1998.

He likely won't get to McGahee's 1,753 from 2002.

Love that haircut on Adam...do the seniors still shave Freshman heads?

SOUP

DA SKREETZ REPONDING TO A QUESTION:

1. Now if Miami can get another Finnie type ballah back there then Coach D can breakout the aggressive D.

2. CB is another spot Dallas has looked decent at. Yo that ballah is the main reason Miami beat the sh$# outta GT. Playah was killin it as scout team QB. Al is all about bringin in ballahs that can play different spots. What its listed dont mean thats a lock.

3. Defensive game plan is alot different when they can be aggresive back there.

Getting Malcolm Lewis is HUGE. Awesome. Now need Goldman or someone else at DT and I'll be happy :)

The interesting thing about the haircut is that the seniors would deliberately leave tufts of hair untouched in several spots...the hair (or lack of it) in the pic is after a barber cleaned it up...

SOUP

SKREETZ WALKIN...

1. I sure aint overdosed on my slurpees so dont read into this wrong lol. Alot of the physical part of football is mental. Bois gotta get the mindset of being hit or blastin someone. A few of these playahs aint willing to be physical cause they worried about bein busted or looking bad on tv. Missed tackles, giving up big plays, drops and missed assignments will happen. Some bois cant let it go right now and zone out the rest of the game. Gotta love Al, cause that pimp sees that lack you will sit a series or 2 and slip on that chart.

2. On the bowl game tip, im saying its 50/50 right now. If Miami goes then big props go to Jacory, Sean and JoJo cause Al got that man crush for those bois and would like to see them go with a bowl win.

3. Ive always had a spot for Onion and wish bruh the best of luck. What ill never understand is why he treated past Canes like sh$#. When I say like sh$# I full on mean it. He really f d up with the local HS. You cant ignore them and not even talk to em. Havin others speak for you was f d.

4. If you dont want a ballah cause you dont think hes the type you dont want, then respect em enough to tell the playah that. Relationships were even worse then fans would ever know. That sh$# killed me cause I knew those bois wanted to be here but couldnt get that chance. Straight sayin this gets me and other Miami goons angry.

This Saturday, Nov. 19, the South Florida Bulls (5-4, 1-4 Big East) begin a three-game homestand to end their season, hosting the Miami Hurricanes (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) in a rare late-season, non-conference battle.

Last Thursday, the Bulls ended their four-game losing streak in emphatic fashion, sending the Syracuse Orange to a 37-17 defeat. South Florida outgained Syracuse, 236 yards to 108, on the ground and scored all four of its touchdowns rushing. Demetris Murray scored two touchdowns on his 17 carries, while quarterback B.J. Daniels led USF in rushes (21) and yards (117) while adding a touchdown of his own.

Miami is coming off a 23-19 loss the Florida State Seminoles, rivals from the ACC. The Hurricanes ran 18 more plays than the Noles and held a 383-259 edge in net yards, but their three turnovers did them in.

USF is 1-2 all-time against Miami, but won the most recent meeting between the teams, 23-20, in overtime. Murray scored the winning touchdown with a one-yard run.

Second, you had multiple offers for years from other top-tier schools. What was the most tempting offer and why did you ultimately elect to stay in Fort Collins?

— Chris, Evergreen

Lubick: I did have some tempting offers. The first one came after my second year here after we played Michigan in the Holiday Bowl. Few of us ever dreamed we would get that far that quickly.

The offer came from the University of Miami, where I had been the defensive coordinator. I was tempted, but it was just a little too quick and the whole community up here was so excited that I just felt that I couldn't walk out on them. So yes, I was very, very tempted, but I think it was just easier to stay here.

As soon as that Miami job became open, I kind of dragged my feet on it a little bit. I guess things were going so well for us here that I didn't feel the need to move on. I feel like I became part of the community here. I'm glad for that.

In an interview Wednesday with The Associated Press, Shannon discussed his past, his future, how the Hurricanes look under new coach Al Golden -- and the investigation into claims made by former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro, allegations that have already rocked the athletic department and could impact the football team for years.

He's ready to move on to the next challenge, and now just waits for someone to bring the invitation his way.

"I needed this year to sit out," said Shannon, who was fired last Nov. 27. "I needed to learn something new. And I think I've done that."

Shannon has been spending time at Alabama, TCU, North Carolina, UNLV, Oregon, Iowa State and Minnesota, packing up for a week at a time to embed with those programs and soak up knowledge.

The visits had little to do with football -- he refused invitations to sit down in X's and O's meetings -- but rather were about learning how the organizations worked, from security to scheduling and anything in between.

herbieibis

***Shannon making the rounds to see how to truly run a football program, so he'll be better prepared the next time he gets a head coaching gig. Here's a hint, don't alienate high school coaches, get your players in the weightroom, don't build a 2 story dog house, be more of a communicator & motivator and recruit for balance. You left us with squat a dee-tackle & Cb and teach your boys to watch film and i don't mean going to the movies.

***losing Keith Brown sux but new it was coming. Wanted a package deal and i guess my take on it is, if he's so good, what the "F" is he going to ILL. for. Hate to lose that size LB, when we are trying to get bigger at that spot, of course the process isn't over, we still have to Feb. to cjange his mind and he probably will once Zook gets the ax. I'm wondering how many ships we got left to hand out. Goldie, throw yourself into finding 2 big azz linemen, wiff dos frew ships you have left.

calGary Cane

what's with Brown brothers always wanting to play together?

UMike

IDK how good Keith Brown is..but I do like the fact that we didnt bow to his demand and offer his brother...IF that is the case. If we do that, what else does the kid think he can get away with

herbieibis

Da "U" offers a DE/OT rawbone named Sonny Odegwu 6'9 270. One year of football. I would say there's a potential DT and would maybe be ready to play by 2014, if we were to get him.

j.w.

Tough loss with Brown, but I think it was going to happen sooner or later, better to know he's following Zook now than in late January. On to the next one.

herbieibis

I don't mind players skipping out on verbals but dang why has it always got to be the few big dogs (stars) or positions we rally need help out. I don't know how good Brown would of been, who actually knows how any kid is going to turn out going from High School to college but he was already middle LB size at 230 and probably would of been one of the few who could step in and play right away.

Had a chance to watch 4 star Carlos Watkins play against my former high school team last weekend and he really didn't do anything special but they used him at running back, end and DT.The dude has got some ups to be 6'4 and 270 and he can run laterally but he's going to Clemson.

Who's the mom with the mini-Cane in the 4th pic? She looks like Diane Lane

And brah, I love me some Diane Lane


Funny as well that Bossman Shannon is still being discussed and for some weird reasons, being defended


Da Skreetz justified what a lot of us have been saying for a while with Bossman Shannon not taking care of his own backyard with recruits, when how many times did he say that is how the program was built in the first place

Case in point that you'll see this Saturday - DT Elkino Watson. Naaahhh, he wouldn't have been nice to have at DT this season at all ... unless you're still sucking on the teet of just how good Marcus Forston is

http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings/dsprofile.php?pyid=119809&draftyear=2015&genpos=DT


Also funny that the OC that Golden waited so long for (even though some thought waiting that long was a detriment to recruiting?) to bring in is the OC that is helping Jacory be the Jacory that everyone expected him to be when he came to Miami

Golden is still overrated though and also can't recruit ... right?

Would love to see what Bossman Shannon would've done with Mike Williams, Brandon McGee, Lee Chambers at DB

Ray Ray is also full retard for doing what he did and rightfully deserved to have to sit for the next game. When you're under the Hubble by the NCAA at this juncture b/c of the little sh*t ponzi schemer, you do things like sit your starting underachieving safety who for some reason likes to brag about getting a chicken dinner at a steakhouse


Ohio_Cane

SOUP - Miramar Coach answered your question about Malcolm Lewis.

SOUP: "What are Lewis' best skills and strengths at WR?"

Ohio_Cane

Blah ^^^ U already saw it lol

Kacy Rogers II didn't make the play on the WR in the endzone, even though he got there in time to do something .. anything

RayRay probably wouldn't have been in position to make that play anyway, it would've been behind him - I still have nightmares of seeing the UVA WR wide the hell open way behind RayRay on that RB option throw for a TD


In case anyone forgot ...

ok sounds good.

Lewis looks like another stud, he is one of those guys that could probably play CB if needed he has good quickness and speed and is nearly 6'0 so has great size at CB, Howard looks more like a future safety then a lockdown CB to be. He does not have great speed or quickness but he is developed and strong.

NCAA FOOTBALL COACHES SALARIES:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/story/2011-11-17/cover-college-football-coaches-salaries-rise/51242232/1

5 ACC COACHES MADE $2M PLUS!

SOUP

This season, at least 64 coaches are making more than $1 million. Of those, 32 are being paid more than $2 million, nine are making more than $3 million, and three are making more than $4 million. Texas' Mack Brown tops the list; he's being paid more than $5 million. The analysis is based on contracts or other documents showing compensation from 110 of the 120 schools in the NCAA's top-tier Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).

Average pay for major-college head coaches rose 7.3% from 2010. Average pay for those coaches was flat the year before, the only time there was no increase since USA TODAY began these analyses in 2006.

Gene Chizik's $1.4 million raise was this season's biggest, but he led Auburn to the national championship last season. Fisher's Seminoles didn't achieve as much, winning an Atlantic Coast Conference division championship before losing to Virginia Tech in the ACC title game and beating South Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen got this season's second-biggest raise — $1 million. Mullen earned $1.2 million in his first season at the school in 2009, got a $300,000 raise for his second year, and the latest raise jumps his pay to $2.5 million. Last season, he led the Bulldogs to a 9-4 record, their best since 1999, and a victory against Michigan in the Gator Bowl. He also was mentioned as a candidate for head-coaching vacancies at Miami (Fla.) and Florida.

Muschamp at UF: $3.2M

Fisher at FSU: $2.8M

Miami is in need of a big nose tackle to use in their system and Epken Iduoze fits that bill. He is 6’4 and 330 pounds. The Milford Prep standout has had a record setting season going undefeated.

“I am doing good up here,” he said. “It’s been cool. We finished our season 12 and 0. I think we are the number one prep school in the country. I know we are the first undefeated [prep school] team. I am not sure about my stats for the season, but after six games I had 30 tackles, 3 sacks and 17 tackles for loss.”

Iduoze said a lot of schools are looking at him right now. “USC, Texas A&M, Colorado, East Carolina, Ball State, Penn State, Pittsburg, Maryland and a bunch of other schools.” Some schools have already offered the 2012 prospect such as “Colorado, East Carolina, Ball State, Western Michigan, Maryland and Penn State.”

“I am going to do that in December,” he said about narrowing down his list.

He knows Miami’s head coach, Al Golden, from his days at Temple.

“I know Al Golden from Temple. He was recruiting me when he was at Temple. I like him. He recruited my friend. I thought he controls the program well. He is really strict and doesn’t let anything stupid happen and stuff like that. I like Miami. I am trying to send them some new film to see what is going on.”

He followed that up by saying, "I would love to hear from the 'Canes. They have a great history of putting defensive lineman in the NFL."

When it comes to enrolling in college, he is set to go. “I can go to college in January if I want to.”

Scouting Report by Jimmy D Smith: Iduoze is a massive nose tackle prospect that specializes in run support. He is ideal to play 0-technique and is an immovable object on the defense. He recently trimmed his body fat by four percent and is planning to match that by another four percent by the time he enrolls in college. He uses his hands well at times but can be inconsistent in this department.

Hey folks:

Good to revisit the blog again. Wife wasn't okay with how much time I spent here in the past, but still need my U fixes regardless of how the season is going...and still love the recruiting. What I wanna know about new recruit Malcolm Lewis, WR from Miramar, is which info. is correct? Is he 5'11" and 170 or 6'1" and 190 lbs., as stated by Blustein. This is the fun of figuring out recruits. Nice to see that Leggett will likely academically qualify.

Time to play like they understand football and take out USF. Any players okay with how last year vs. the Bulls went?! Ugh.

SOUP

OGV...we are locked and loaded for 5 AM Saturday. Thanks again for your MANY contributions to the blog.

Golden said the biggest difference between UM and FSU right now is depth.

"Just looking at Florida State. That's the one thing they're ahead of us on," Golden said. "We're going to work on that. We have a big recruiting class coming in. I think a lot of those guys are going to have to play.

"Where we're hurt the most is at linebacker. Those are the guys that are run and strike, carry weight. They're 225, 230 and can get down there and make plays. Right now we find ourselves protecting linebackers. We're sitting there with five guys the other day. I'm used to carrying 10 to 12 on the road. We're sitting there five, maybe six. That makes it hard, really hard. We're trying to protect those guys. We understand moving forward we have to get that fixed."

UM coach Al Golden said Tuesday he considers Chickillo among the freshmen leaders. Receiver Phillip Dorsett, linebacker Denzel Perryman, defensive back Dallas Crawford and defensive tackle Jalen Grimble are others. But Chickillo said he believes Golden has been urging him to step more into the forefront, a role he says he won’t shy away from.

“Coach Golden tells me all the time you have to be a leader, make sure everybody is doing the right thing. ... And that’s what I do,’’ Chickillo said.

“We need everybody to realize what we can be and how good we can be. When this next recruiting class comes in — right when they come in — I’m going to talk to them all and just tell them you just have to follow the process and good things will happen for our program. I want to win a championship. That’s why we all came here and what it should be.’’

But first Chickillo wants to start that trek by winning in his own backyard.

Soup,
We not only lacked depth at LB before the season, but CB and DT. He has since moved every Tom, Dick, & Harry to DT and we still lack a depth of talent at that position and CB, depth is a joke. Is Keon Payne, even playing this year? LB, we absolutely have to get bigger. No more 6'0 190 lb's coming in from High School. Those days are history.

Papa Cane - Breaking News: We are 99.7% sure Urban Meyer has agreed to a deal to become the next coach of Ohio State. Solid sources. Plural

Felipe

Already heard the details from an OSU alum with _some_ inside sources. Meyer a done deal according to him.

Wilkerson last night for the Jets was getting it done

As for Sanchez, I'd be pissed if I was a Jets fan and had to have him at QB

He cost them field position, he cost them a pick 6 and he made some really bad throws ... hell, you'd think I was talking about Tebow just then

It's year 3 for him, he should be better. He was basically a facilitator for the Jets O his first two years with the Defense taking care of business

When your QB is basically on the same level as Chad Henne last year, worse than Shaun Hill w/Detroit last year and worse than Sam Bradford w/St. Louis - you've got problems as a Jets fan

RE: Urban to OSU - "If U can't beat him, hire him"

LOL

USF talking like crazy this week, bowing their chests out - fans and players alike

Even worse since I live 2 mins from their campus

I'd listen to Larry Blustein, he's actually around these kids all the time. His page says he's 6'1, 190.

U got it bro. Not sure ever who is in the know and the height/weight metrics wildly vary for HS prospects I've seen.

Def varies, and tbh, I wouldn't be surprised if Blu is off, but he's the one I'd trust the most.

He's around SO many high school athletes on a weekly basis and knows more about SFla high school football than anyone I know of.

He was on Joe Rose Show raving about Lewis this morning. It's under "Larry Blustein with Big Dog 11-18"

SOUP asked Craig Hubert "Miami needs some DTs. Any who U know might be on the list to be a Hurricane?"

Hubert answers: "In the mix for a few but at this point I would say none of note that seem like a real strong possibility"

Canesteeler - you going to see the Pens play the Panthers? Florida looks much improved this year

Felipe

Thanks for the heads up on Blu's reliability and the Big Dog interview. Listening now.

j.w.

Six- I don't see a whole lot of weapons for Sanchez. The WR that was targeted most last night was in jail for two years, he was down to his third team RB (and the top 2 really aren't that good), and Santonio Holmes looks hurt. His OL and TE are decent, but I don't see many pro bowl starters there. Plus, he has Shottenheimer as an OC, who calls plays a lot like his old man did. Put him in Philly or even Detroit and I bet Sanchez looks a lot better.

“There’s going to be a point in time when everybody on our team decides we’re never going to lose again,’’ said Chickillo, whose father Tony, a nose tackle from 1979 to 1982, and grandfather, Nick, an All-American two-way lineman in 1952, played for the Canes.

"We’ve got so much talent. We’ve got the right coaches. We don’t have to lose. It’s going to change."
