I can just imagine Da Skreetz getting wind of that Alabama/DB-recruit/girlfriend-job-extra-benefit/mom-feud story then bursting out laughing so hard he spills his Slurpee on the 7-Eleven floor before just walking out and saying, "Thank You," for some reason.

D'No to Rutgers? GATORADE SHOWERS FOR STOPPING THE OPTION FOR EVERYONE!

I bet Mario got a nice cha-ching raise out of today's rumor mill.

Felipe.

My hope for tomorrow:

UGA: Avery Young (if not Miami), JHC (if not Miami)

USC: Leonard Williams, Nelson Agholor

FSU: Darby

Bama: Goldman

UM: TH, JHC, Darius Hamilton


Yes, I despise Florida.

Ohio..I found him...just one of many "Twidiots" they just think their "homies" can see it..I think their high school coaches need to inform them of the dangers Twitter and Facebook.

Interesting read:

Top football talent shifts to the South
By Paula Lavigne
ESPN.com

High school senior Eddie Williams has been fortunate in many ways. Fortunate to have been offered a scholarship to play football at Alabama. Fortunate to have an uncle who pushed him to practice and play as much as he could. Fortunate to have parents who worried enough about him following his friends' path toward crime and gangs to send him out of town to live.

But of all the factors that propelled Williams to become a top recruit, none may be more important than the simple fortune of having been born in Florida.

UMike

This is a little exchange..I think..someone and Howards mom..

Wayne @Wayne1430- UFamily 1player dus not make or break this team, Love Tracy Howard & his Mom, but it aint gonna happen for us. Like I said its all good tho!

Shaiy (Football Mom) - I see this is turning into a dog & pony show, one of the main reasons Tracy does not have a Twitter account....

Shaiy (Football Mom) - In my opinion, one player is not going to impact a team that much, unless you are Peyton Manning.

UMike

Shaiy (Football Mom) - Let me get back to my real work and leave the nonsense alone for a while. I guess Wednesday at 9:36 am will be even more of a circus.

LB

Taking a wild guess (Ohio/Soup)... it's probably worth paying attention live to Ye Olde Day of Signage for a little surprise or two?

:)

Ohio_Cane

LB, I said months ago there would be 1-3 surprises on NSD.

Ya, saw him saying he doesn't know where pol were getting that. I woulda been surprised, cuz I heard D'No wants him in the secondary, BAD!

Inside the u reports Howard to the Canes, gators coaches are pissed

I heard we are in the hunt for williams i will not say 100% bit i know we are in it. Cant believe we got howard. Wow

Careful who U believe. We don't HAVE anyone yet, technically.

I'll reserve all celebrating for Wednesday.

Felipe.

If I believed ITU, we'd have had Seantrel on signing day.

And I'd think Denzel Perryman wasn't "1/2 as talented as Sean Spence."

VA Cane

It doesnt matter until the paper is signed, the i's and t's are dotted and da ink is dry mate!!!! Still I hope some good thinks happen, and some surprises for us!!!

Work is still pretty slow; VA has a good economy; housing picking up some, still slow. Bank of Amerika, that bunch of commies who we all bailed out wanted to foreclose on my home 12/23....were going to sell it again on 1/19....filed Chapter 13. since I am underwater, no real equity, my attorney will deed strip the 2nd mtge....thats payback to the bank, it will go away, and I will not have to pay it. Going to have it appraised, and demand (since Countrywide really screwed me before BOFA bought them) they do a mark to market accounting adjustment, base my note on the value. If not, I will walk away. I am pumped for Wednesday. I have been asked to coach at a big JV program here....again, no $....but I have never been in it for $. Tough decision to leave my kids that I have worked with...we will see....VA Cane Country AZZ!!!!

SOUP

UMike and Ohio...it is not only the players like McCord and Waters that are the problem it all of the people they follow.

I think they think it is like sending a text message and that only the person U send it to can see it? Because if NOT if they know that everyone can see it then it is an even BIGGER problem that we can even imagine.

SOUP

Save your money...ITU appears to be irresponsbile at times and inaccurate most of the rest of the time.

Wait until Wednesday, then read Canespace, then skip happily down the street or just do your best spin move in the privacy of your own home.

No need to get ahead of the news, reporting it when it happens is just fine.

SOUP

Twitter is convulsing tonight!

UMike

Papa Cane - Lots of very interesting war room moves going on right now. If someone flips, then there's a backup plan. All bases covered. Outstanding.

I think this means Northrup is gone, lol

This.

2002nemo

I'd love to see a top-rated, yet noncommited, recruit on NSD sit down at the table with three hats in front of him . . . each one bearing the distinctive U logo. Then, the recruit could give a little speech explaining the he looked at an array of schools and decided that ONE was best for academics, ONE was best for producing NFL super stars, and ONE provided him the best opportunity to compete early for playing time. Then, he should mimic the old "hat trick" with the three hats, before proclaiming "after considerable thought and serious analysis" that MIAMI was the best choice for him in EACH of his three main selection criteria. Finally, he puts on ALL THREE HATS!
If a recruit would do this, he would immediately become an instant NSD legend (and my favorite new player) at the U.

Ohio_Cane

Memo, that would be AMAZING to witness!

SOUP

Look....Ohio, UMike, OGV, Hassan and others know that we could go around saying all kinds of things about NSD and MOST of them would turn out to be truebe true. But we do NOT simply out of respect for the players, their families and our sources confidentiality.

NSD will be here in TWO days. Breathe deep and sleep WELL Miami fans, sleep well...

Nick

it seems D'no and Golden like the 3-4 defensive scheme. Any chance we make the switch this year or do we not have the players for it?

Felipe

CBSSportsMiami: Darius Hamilton down to Rutgers and Miami. Eliminated UiF

TheWhat

Even if a recruit himself tells you he is going to X school it means nothing until NSD. These are kids and 24 hours for them is a lifetime and they can change their mind multiple times in a single day. Let's not declare any recruiting victories until NSD.

SOUP

There IT is right there.

LB

Oh, I don't know about that...

...we could declare victory for Dewey, Kirby, Flowers, etc.


:)

VA Cane

Good point, til the ink is dried, the kids are in school, and the commies at the NCAA who hate us say it is ok, don't get too worked up. Yes its a great time to witness, but this does not change things immediately, it does point to better days and a brighter future for the team.

For some reason, all the guys that left to try and play in the NFL...not all of them are really that good....they were not so hot here...they know who they are....is a good sign. Kind of like getting rid of dead wood, or cutting out a bad spot on an apple. I really think too many of them did not like hard work, were not dedicated to school, to UM and did not like rules that were strict. Too much ego, too much twitter and tweeting, too much talk.....and for that class in particular.....no legacy left behind, a very subpar record.

Heres to them leaving, hope you do ok....but I am interesed in guys who really want to play hard, and go 110 all the time. I will give an exception to S Spence....that guy played hard all the time, and I think he will find a roster in the NFL...hope so. Too many egos with the others. JMO Country AZZ VA!!!

Tracy Howard to Miami? Don't discount it.

By Dieter Kurtenbach January 30, 2012 10:23 PM

Didn't know Shaiy Howard went to Miami:

There are two factors that go directly in Golden's favor: his stud wide receiver recruit and an alum of the school.

Those two people are Malcolm Lewis and Shaiy Howard. In other terms, Tracy's best friend and his mother.

Perhaps that's the reason my gut said "Miami."

Dear LB,

Even though you found Canespace a few weeks ago, you are still YEARS late to the party.

I respond: "It ain't my fault."- R. Hill


Seriously, I don't think the Northrups, Howards, and Hamiltons break this class. It's pretty much built.

1. A QB coached by Ty Detmer in a location known for its difficulty.
2. The best tailback in the country.
3. Ryan Williams!
4. At least two highly touted and competitive offensive linemen.
5. A solid group of at least two receivers.
6. At least two talented and motivated members of the secondary.
7. Raphael Kirby is on campus.

Anything else is ice. I've always liked ice. How about yo[]_ _[]?

Question, if Miami inks Howard, would this be better than the Brock Berlin led comeback some years ago?

Didn't know that Darren Krein was the strength coach for the Dolphins:

Also returning to the Dolphins 2012 staff will be tight ends coach Dan Campbell, special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi and strength coach DARREN KREIN, all three of whom were on Tony Sparano's staff last season.

Not at all. That's not how I intended it to read, and apologize if it did. Was more of a matter of fact statement. Sorry if it got misconstrued otherwise, bro.

Ohio_Cane

Matt Porter: There have been rumors about Angelo Jean-Louis not qualifying for Miami. His coach, Rod Harris, wants to clear those up. Harris said Jean-Louis is taking online courses "like 65% of D1 prospects in the country at this time. He's working hard to improve." Harris said Jean-Louis will sign with Miami on signing day and he fully expects him to qualify.

CaneRock

LOL...the Clemons kid lost His phone on His Miami visit.
And judging by how He "rated" His visit, He didn't sound to thrilled:

Memo to Mark Richt, Jimbo Fisher, Will Muschamp and Al Golden: Harvey-Clemons can’t take your phone calls over the next couple of days.

That’s because Josh lost his phone at the Fat Tuesday’s restaurant during his official visit to Miami, according to his grandfather. “We lost it there, and went back to get it later that night and the place was closed,” Clemons said. ‘The Miami coaches said they would help get the phone back to us.”

I would just like to say that right now im torn between All the money that the SEC is throwing at me or the my dream school the one i grew up rooting for since i was a lil boy. It's going to be a tough desicion but my finalist are $$$,$$$$,$$$$$,$$$$$$$,and MIAMI. I pray that i make the corret decision tomorrow at 745am.

Hassan

Why say you are commited soft or not when you know you are just going to go someplace else?

A soft commitment is like Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's Marriage (We all knew if would not last)

LB

Throw away the negatives ($$$, promised jobs, corrupt culture, etc.). Choosing a school is a big deal. You're going to have to choose a city, a school, a major, and attempt to excel in sports. Some are academically inclined first, some not. The influences of friends, parents, coaches, and fans often clash. You're 17-18. Dating someone you love/like/texting/lol/? How's that going to go when she's in Vanderbilt and you're in "THAT" school (FSU).

I can sympathize with being unsure.

LB

Yet Al Golden's tie shall free the stricken, cure the oppressed, and heal the world.

Spring Practice 3/3

Scrimmages 3/24 and 3/30

Is a 2nd year Finnie, who was a 3 star will all the tools to be good 2 years of UTough >=Freshman Bush or Howard? I say Howard is starting by the 3 or 4th game. Bush grows into a safety but plays Nickel and dime this year. Finnie slides over next year to take MCgee's spot and we have Howard and Finnie next year as out DB and Bush and Crawford as our SS and FS.


Wow that is a pretty talented big and all SFLA Defensive backfield for 2014.

UpNorthCane

well then if you guys are leaving it up to old man grinch and mr. flip flop i feel bad for us loll...but lets not talk politics on the blog...

i say vote for golden coach and recruiter of the year

Old Skool

Hassan LOL

Felipe.

Certainly makes sense from an optics standpoint, the Texas recruits having less upside. Texas has been what, top 3 in recruiting every single year or something? And yet, they still get annihilated by an Oklahoma team that was annihilated by Ok St.; UCLA, other teams.

Granted Texas could be beast with the youth of the team. My bet is that they stumble however.

Ohio_Cane

Jimmy D Smith - Looking more and more likely that Miami and Al Golden may have kept a big homegrown talent (Tracy Howard) from going elsewhere. #USigned

Felipe.

I have no idea who that is Ohio Cane. Do they have a twitter account? Search just gives me some NASCAR dude or something.

Round 2 of exams, here we go. Ding, ding.

UMike

Anthony Chickillo - I'm hearing were getting some good players tomorrow #allabouttheu

Ohio_Cane

Adam Kuperstein - Got a good feeling after talking to Duke Johnson that Miramar CB Tracy Howard is coming to the U. Would be huge win for #Miami over #UF #FSU

Texascane

Of course, Felipe...OU and Okie State have 20-30 Texas kids on their roster...each.

UMike

Adam Kuperstein - Got a good feeling after talking to Duke Johnson that Miramar CB Tracy Howard is coming to the U. Would be huge win for #Miami over #UF #FSU

Felipe, U mean Jimmy D Smith? He's the recruiting director for Southeast Insider Network.

@JimmyDSmith on twitter

UMike

dang it lol

Felipe.

The guy who said Tyriq McCord definitely won't be a Cane says the TH buzz is a "siren" now. (Corey Long)

Doesn't mean that it's true. Smoke screens are common.

Seantrel to Miami 2 days before NSD, then Ohio State, then Miami again, and he picked USC.

Ohio_Cane

Corey Long seems as if he goes more on opinion than actual facts and conversations. JMO.

UpNorthCane

Well Sentreal to Miami was true he just took a lil detour to get down to coral gables loll

Felipe.

Yup that's true Texascane. Tis why I tossed in UCLA. That game was ridiculous. Didn't that defensive coordinator become UF's coach? :)

Full on meltdown at Florida if Agholor, Leonard Williams go to USC, Avery Young goes to Georgia, and we land DHamilton and TH.

UMike

Actually Corey Long has flat out told me those are just his opinions

Ohio_Cane

Umike, well that makes a lot of sense then. Lol

Ohio_Cane

I'm at work and can't even friggin concentrate today lol. All I can think about is 7 am tomorrow!

j.w.

McCord doesn't act like he is waffling. Then again, we have seen it before. lol. But I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Ohio_Cane

I don't see how McCord is catching the "wavering" or "soft verbal" tag. Wasn't he texting uncommitted recruits of UM when he was on his USC visit trying to get them to commit.

Felipe.

Rivals.com reporting two committed Gators have other schools LOIs, per some Florida Gators ahole on Twitter and an ESPN recruiting guy. Poole (possible to ND) and Powell.

Enjoy the fall ladies and gents, they deserve nothing more for not scheduling the U.

Ohio_Cane

Felipe, interesting.

How is a school like Florida (Ya, I hate em too, but they're very well known and in the $EC) losing all these top recruits? I'm hearing they're gonna miss on Angholor, Hamilton, Howard, and now Poole and Powell?

Wow.

Ohio_Cane

Duke Johnson - Less then 24 hrs till shaiy howard and tracy pick his school....*finger crossed*....... #Cantwait
