South Carolina gets Rivals' Cornerback U in their "Position U" series.

Canes were also mentioned with Bama, Auburn, Boise, FSWho, UGA, Michigan, OSU, and Texas.

SOUP

I think many Canes fans are hiding in their closets today after Miami was swept by FSU this weekend. Not much action or traction out there or on the blog.

We will have several features on 2013 high school recruits and potential UM targets over the next few weeks. Stay tuned...

Q

South Carolina for corners.. ? I would have gone with Ohio state

Chokaholics, that's our baseball team. A bunch of weak sister hitters and no fielding zeros. It's time for new blood. Morris has gone about as far as he can go. First it was Florida, that broomed us and now FSU, with a mainly a rookie starter pitching staff.

Good Article Soup.


I would like to expound on this topic. I do not want to get into what measurable’s mean on the football field because we all know there are examples of people with great or not so great but were great players. What I want to discuss is the 3 recruiting services and their #’s and how that impacts college teams. As we Miami fan’s know there are a great many coaching staff’s that recruit based on these service’s “list”. The list are based off of tape and in part by measurables. The future of any CFB team is in recruiting, it is hard to determine how a young man will develop and there are bust no matter what you do, but you want to mitigate risk as much as possible in order to maximize success. The problem is the 3 services would use high light tapes which of course can obfuscate the players weakness and enhance their strengths with careful editing. In the old days evaluation was conducted by visiting recruits games, before the days of youtube and recruiting services coaches spent a lot of time evaluating. The difference was the have and havenot’s is that the have’s could afford private planes etc to give huge advantages to the have’s. Small private schools with limited recruiting budgets had to be creative to remain competitive. With Miami our camps we now are bringing the best players to us where we can see them up close and put them through the paces to evaluate if they fit out system and the attributes we are seeking. The good news is that the recruiting services are getting better, in the past their measurable were sometimes guesses and sometimes given by the H.S. coach or interviews they conducted. With these young men still growing the measurable can be a moving target and often times the recruiting services can be off by a wide margin if one has not spoke to the recruit for months. The past few years the big companies and recruiting services have held Combine style events in which the recruits are measured and tested in many events. This has helped to get the measureables to be more accurate but many times lazy recruiting services still report their inaccurate information while data exist that is much more accurate gathered from these combines. On the good side these combine’s let college coaches know the true size of the players and the players get to hear different voices from a coaching perspective then just their H.S coach. We will see more and more developed players over time as the good coaching is creeping down further and further.

One recruiting service has Joe listed at 5-11, 215 and running a 4.4 forty.

Another has Stud listed at 6-1, 225 and running a 4.6 forty.

Still another web site has Joe checking in at 6-0, 220 and 4.5 in the forty.

I deduce from the 3 sites that as the player gets older, he gets fatter and runs slower.

Going by height (we don't grow shorter!)

The whole point of the 4.3 Streeter debate was that people on here said he could not run a 4.3. I think we all saw he can. Even if you go with the 4.40 time that is not his best time. Usain bolt does not set a WR every time he runs. Streeter has 4.3 speed that is my point. Not sure why i have to go over this 10 times. If I was wrong I would admit it. One thing i am wrong about although i never predicted it, is that Aldarius ran in teh low 4.4's I never in my life saw that coming adn never heard anyone predict he would run anything near that.

But that is all that matters, the final score and once again we did NOT get the job done in Tally. No fun at all.

Nice article soup. Can't wait for the future articles about future recruits. This makes me all the more happy about goldens camps and his insistence on seeing players up close and personal and not just through a video. For anyone in doubt we are in good hands with coach golden.

Just saw the deon bush video of him working out. I gotta say I'm just excited to see him on the field. Love the hard work and work ethic. He's a future canes leader.

Louisville is gonna dominate the big east with all those Florida players they are getting especially if they are working as hard as that kid with deon bush.

Canesteeler - I wondered about that but how do you replace a coach whose team scored 108 points? After thinking about it I think we just need to tweak the Defense (as in get one). I think that problem was always there but just disguised with injuries (Sid and Geno and Letang). This year the Flyers exposed most of the season and so did the Isles and Sens towards the end of the season. I think when Geno took over the team this year and they went on that run some really bad habits ensued because they could outscore everyone and they kind of took on his persona. Fix that D and look out next season. Oh and we need a decent back up for Flower - he was fatigued going into the first round I think. It will be interesting to see what Mario and Ray Shero do. Just my $0.02 fwiw

The What

Leonarad Hankerson recap.

He is coming along well from his injury. Should be ready by the fall (hopefully), though nothing is certain.

He was asked why he wasnt getting any playing time for the first 6 to 8 games of the season. He said he wasn't doing the things he was supposed to be doing. He said that in college he was never required to finish 20 yards (Not sure what he meant if anyone can elaborate?). He basically said he wasn't doing the small things to get on the field and that he was feeling down that he wasnt getting playing time but finally picked himself up and started taking care of his business and controlling only what he can control.

Seems to me he was ill prepared for the rigors of the NFL. I hope all the guys coming out are better prepared and thrive in the NFL.

This is the ultimate recruiting tool. Its pretty amazing that a school that was not been producing wins on the field has been producing NFL players. You mix winning with producting NFL players and we should get every recruit from around the country knocking on our door. I see it coming in the next couple of years and am excited for it.

Hardin told the jurors that prosecutors will not be able to corroborate McNamee's claims. He said that the government has interviewed 187 people, and used 103 federal law enforcement officers -- "over whether a baseball player used steroids

Guys My take on this is how perverted "Justice" in this country is. 187 interviews and 103 federal law enforcement officers to see if Clemens lied about trying to throw a ball better? Really? Trillions of dollars have been siphoned off to European elites in the Mortgage backed securites fraud, Billions in dirty back room deals and every day the rigged casino called Walstreet corruption is everywhere and The S.E.C. is like 1 guy who plays golf with the same executives no interviews no federal officers, but god forbid Clemens wants to throw a ball faster. I liked "the other guys" where the SEC guy said he was playing golf etc with the guy he was about to be asked to investigate but he "swore" that would not interfere with his investigation lol At least in the movie he jumped from the building.

Size Matters.....

In Football there are certain positions where it matters more If i really look at it I would say the position where size matters the Most is the biggest guy on the field LT. You absolutely will not see a 6'1 290 LT Playing at a high level.

At the skill positions you see tons of shorts guys even at QB you have guys starting under 6'0 even elite guys like Drew Brees, of course WR and RB tons of small guys who excel. The D the guys up front you will see occasional short DT's but they have girth, you will see occasional shorter DE's but are really fast but they are not small just relatively small. LB's sometimes you see some fairly small guys like Spence and others under 6'0 and not overly big. the Secondary has many examples of elite guys that are undersized. Ed Reed would not look different then most fans in a t shirt and jeans. but the Offensive Line Size is a premium. Nowhere is it more important than protecting the QB's blind side which most often is the LT position. The long arms to fend off fast Defends and the weight to anchor against the bull rushes and set the edge on the running plays all require size more so then skill. It becomes so important that size actually becomes a skill in itself. Our own Seantrel Henderson is a good example. He is a talented player in his own right but in H.S he was the #1 player in the country not because he had the best technique but because he was one of the biggest athletes seen for a long time at 6'8 and 386 lbs when he arrived as a freshman, with a 7'1 wingspan. His greatest skill was the size that he posses. Once his technique and work ethic catches up with his immense size he can once again be the most coveted player in the nation.

------------------------------------------

Hassan, you know what I think would resolve a lot of the problems we are experiencing in terms of national debt, individual debt, healthcare costs sky rocketing, a decay in our societal fabric, etc.

Reducing the 8 + 1 (for lunch) hour work day

6 hour days, 5 days a week. Lunch is optional if you take it, you work an extra hour. 7am to 1pm or 8am to 2pm 9am to 3pm. Or whatever schedule of employment for that business. Salary would have to stay the same but productivity would actually increase due to a rested, healthier work force.

It would significantly reduce the obesity and healthcare epidemic in the US.
It would re-establish the famalial and social fabric of our society.
It would increase work productivity (a happier healthier employee is a more productive employee)
It would re-engage people with their neighborhood, society and country as a whole
Those things in turn would create more individual savings (less money on eating out), more political awareness (more time to get politically active), better health (more time to exercise, nap, rest,etc)

As odd as this may sound, I believe the antiquated 8 hour work day is at this point in our society causing more harm than good. If you add the time from when you wake up to when you get home from work that is a good 10 to 12 hours depending on where you live in the country. That leaves little time to do much else when you get home.

Just a theory on my part.

Like your thinking, What. Lots of things could go wrong (i.e., more time to drink, eat, smoke instead of working out) but it is a creative idea that should be debated. What we have now isn't working as well as it used to, so I say it's time to try something new.

LB

QB is the most important position in this class, and will continue to be so until we find someone of all-conference caliber. Olsen seems to be the target. If that doesn't work, I wonder who's the second choice?

TE is second. Minus Graham's one year (5 TD's), the last TE to do any damage is Olsen.

I'd love to see a beastly DT and another safety. All else, I'm not clear.

Alabama becoming Hurricanes-like NFL pipeline

Associated Press | April 23, 2012
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabama is becoming the kind of NFL draft factory that the Miami Hurricanes were a decade ago.

The national champion Crimson Tide is expected to have five players drafted in the first round Thursday night, which would be only the fifth time that has happened since the common draft began in 1967.

Add in last year's first-round quartet, and only the Hurricanes have had more a prolific stretch in the draft.

Tailback Trent Richardson, linebackers Dont'a Hightower and Courtney Upshaw and defensive backs Mark Barron and Dre Kirkpatrick are all projected as first-rounders.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. figures "at worst" four of them will go in the first round, and said that playing for the Tide is good for a half-round bump for other draft-eligible players.

"People love the fact they're coached up so well, basically pro coaching," Kiper said. "And they're so much more prepared for what the NFL is going to have to offer."

Still, Alabama will need one more great year to match the Hurricanes. Miami had six first-round picks in 2004, four in 2003 and five in 2002.

The Hurricanes of the early 2000s are the only ones to have at least nine first-rounders in a two-year span, according to STATs LLC.

Ohio State also had five players taken in the opening round in 2006, and Southern California did it in 1968.

Saban said he emphasizes the importance of his players getting degrees and developing personally -- and maybe turning into NFL players.

"We want to help them develop as a football player which means have a great career here, win a championship and see if you can play at the next level," he said.

It helps that Saban has been bringing in some of the nation's top recruiting classes. That has translated into two national championships in three years, along with a renewed draft presence.

The Tide didn't have a single player picked in 2008 for the first time in 38 years. The following year, Andre Smith became Alabama's first first-rounder since Shaun Alexander and Chris Samuels in 2000.

The Tide has eight players who are likely to be drafted. Noseguard Josh Chapman, cornerback DeQuan Menzie and wide receiver/return man Marquis Maze are all expected to be picked in the mid-to-late rounds.

At least six players are listed as potential first-rounders in 2013 in various mock drafts.

The What

So I wanted to know how many players had the potential to get drafted in 2012 from temple. I found this list of top 14 draft prospects from the MAC. And I can happily say temple had the most with 5 players in the top 14. These are al golden players that he recruited and developed. Not only can the man recruit but he can develop his players into potential nfl caliber players. And if he can do that with players from temple imagine what he can do with the players at Miami.

And exactly what The U has been lacking for years now.

herbieibis

Gil Brandt, talking about The "U"'s lack of success at the college level,compared to the talent they send to the NFL, simply states: that it starts with the QB problems we've had. That statement is a fact but the other problems we've had is a lack of a stable coaching staff, especially offensive & defensive coordinators.Also there have been certain positions we've let get real thin by not recruiting the position hard. Over the course of the last 7 to 8 years at one point & time or another we've been thin at the QB, WR, CB, Dt, & LB positions. If we can ever get the numbers right at those certain positions, we will start to right the ship, along with a few more playmakers. I don't think to many people would question that we have talent, it's just that we don't have the depth of talent we used to have and two, we've had some slouches has head coaches.

Golden said it shouldn't be too long before QB Morris (back surgery) gets the green light to do it all

Al Golden: "At QB certainly we developed depth just by virtue of Stephen's absence this spring''

Golden: "At rb James and Clements have distinguished themselves.. Dallas Crawford will have a role.''

Though DL Olsen Pierre appeared to have a breakout spring game, coach Golden after tape review, he benefited from missed assignments on O.

Golden: "We held guys out the last week & in spring game but it appears everybody will be ready for camp"

Golden: "We're right where we want to be moving into this next phase.''

Caneinsider.com - Article (free) on Tampa Jesuit WR Travis "TJ" Johnson:

One of the top wide receivers in the Sunshine State is Travis “TJ” Johnson from Tampa (Fla.) Jesuit. He is tall, athletic and has good speed out on the field. While attending the NFTC event at the Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Johnson told CaneInsider.com about the colleges recruiting him the hardest.

“At the moment I want to say USC. I have talked with Monte Kiffin a lot,” Johnson said. “Vanderbilt with Coach (Josh) Gattis, the wide receivers coach. USF, I talk to them a lot. Miami with Coach (Art) Kehoe and Florida with Coach (Aubrey) Hill.”

He talked more about Miami offensive line coach Art Kehoe.

“He is just an upfront guy,” said Johnson of Kehoe. “He tells me I need to keep working on the little things and that I have talent. He said I just have to keep grinding each day and not get complacent. And that I am going to be playing more of an X if I want to come in. They see me being more of an X receiver like they did with (Tommy) Streeter. Then I would go to a tight end or H-Back if that doesn’t work out. They like my height and speed. People don’t think I can move, but I can really move. I have good hands and stuff like that.”

Johnson, 6’3 and 230-pounds, feels that Miami is on the rise.

“They are up-and-coming. They are starting to get players like Duke Johnson and Antonio Crawford from Plant. So, they are starting to get top players, they just need to put the pieces together.”

So, where does Miami stand for this talented prospect?

“I don’t have any favorites, but I definitely like [Miami],” said Johnson. “I grew up a fan.”

He described what led him to root for the ‘Canes when he was growing up. “Basically that there isn’t nothing better than being a Hurricane. Growing up a fan, if you go to school in basically Florida, you might as well go to Miami. Nothing like being at The U.”

Nate Webster convicted on 4 counts in his sexual assault case. He may be a Cane, but I despise people who do this to kids. Leave the 15-year olds (or even 16-year olds) alone if you're a grown man, there's no excuse for this.

(From PFT)
An Ohio jury has found former NFL linebacker Nate Webster guilty of four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a conviction that could result in Webster being sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.

Webster was also charged with gross sexual imposition and sexual battery but was acquitted on those charges. He was also acquitted on a fifth count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Prosecutors accused Webster of having a sexual relationship with a girl when she was 15 and he was in his 30s, and of threatening to kill her and her family if she told anyone. Webster admitted he had sex with the girl but claimed it was consensual and that the sexual relationship began after she turned 16, which is the age of consent in Ohio.

Judge Ralph Winkler said after the jury announced its verdict that he expects to sentence Webster to prison, and he ordered Webster jailed until his sentencing hearing on June 6. Webster turned down a plea deal that would have forced him to spend four years in prison.

Webster played for the Buccaneers from 2000 to 2003, for the Bengals in 2004 and 2005 and for the Broncos from 2006 to 2008.

Da Webb should have taken the deal 4 years looks real good right now would have been out in 3 max with good behavior and on with his life still in his 30's. But he might do closer to 20 now and be out when we have flying cars.

I shouldn't be laughing at this post since Nate was the man when I was an underclassmen, but first off, I'm glad he wasn't around to mentor DJ Williams and secondly, that last sentence was funny as hell, so I chuckled. Nate couldn't find a 17 year old to get with just to be on the safe side? I'm sure OSU fans couldn't wait to get a hold of him for the beat-down they took in September on that jury, but impartiality and justice is blind and all that rule the day.

Ohio_Cane - the name that everyone knows from BManatee is their QB, Cord Sandberg. I know he probably gets sick of the Tebow comparisons, simply b/c he's a lefty, he can run if needed (813 yards, 10 TDs last year), he can pass (2,187 yards, 19 TDs) - he's an athlete


But the names that people will know this year, if they don't already:

Derrick Calloway
Thor Miller
Blake Keller
Willie Smith

even little Ja Juan Pollock

Clinton Heaven would've been a nice add to the Canes last year, he signed with UNC - kid is a Safety so the Canes would've had a log jam at that position. I'll still take my boy Rayshawn Jenkins though, no doubt at all

My favorite BManatee player of them all - Anthony Lauro

Kid reminds me somewhat of Danny Woodhead. Tough as nails, crazy white boy with huge legs and a mohawk - with Woodhead's chip on the shoulder type attitude

I have to say I am interested to see what Antonio Crawford brings to the field.

Almost exactly what I was thinking when I read that.

I've gotta say, watching the show "South Beach Tow" is pretty entertaining. Maybe being from South Beach, some of U may not like it, but having never been there, I like it. Funny stuff.
