Via CaneInsider:

Al-Quadin Muhammad to Miami may not be total madness, but now has upgraded to craziness.

Quinton Powell to UM is complete madness, and far from being upgraded to total madness.

The FSU coaching fallout has impacted UM positively, both with Collins and Coley.

We're competing with the Cornhuskers and the Sun Devils for Sandland (TE).

Golden and crew are recruiting Foster like Tebow throws incompletions.

Jamal Carter whispers.

Recruiting update: (Most of this from Pete Ariz at Cane Insight)

FSU losing RB coach and great recruiter Eddie Gran is huge for the Canes. Especially when it comes to recruiting Alex Collins and Stacy Coley. If the staff still wants both, consider them very attainable.

Coley just visited and had a blast and was an eye-opener for him getting to hang out with friends Tracy Howard, Deon Bush, et al.

Collins will be visiting soon. Forget exact date but we're his last visit.

Devante Bond will get an in-home from Golden and Jethro tomorrow night. I bet he commits when they visit since he had such a good time on his official to UM.

National Letter of Intent day for JuCo is December 19th for those enrolling in January, so we'll know next Wednesday or early Thursday which JuCo we got for sure.

I expect Sandland and Bond. Hooks I initially expected too, but that fell through. Possibly getting a P/K. Sam Irwin-Hill

Ohio_Cane

^^^^^ Also, don't be surprised if we sneak in LB Rueben Foster. Full court press on him a la Tracy Howard last year.

Ohio_Cane

I expect Bond.

This just got upgraded from expect to Bond will be on campus soon.

Thanks for the info Ohio.

Thanks for canespace SOUP.

Great to see all the bickering has stopped and to take a phrase from the movie "Cool Hand Luke" what we had here was failure to communicate. The way the Herb sees it, I'm at outsider being that I'm up here in TarHeel country, so I'm dependent on you guys for info. I hit up other sites but to get the real dirt i come here. Now on to my favorite topic, recruiting.
It's well and good if James Bond comes on board and we dam sure need a punter but to me we still haven't addressed our main needs and time is ticking. We need 2 lbs, 1 more DB, 3 DL, 1-big Running back & one more & 1 OL. If we get another WR, so be it.

LB

"Devante Bond will get an in-home from Golden and Jethro tomorrow night. I bet he commits when they visit since he had such a good time on his official to UM."

Are grades okay?

"Also, don't be surprised if we sneak in LB Rueben Foster. Full court press on him a la Tracy Howard last year."

UM still averages 1-2 five stars per year (love for the 'gazers).
2008: Spence, Forston, Harris, Johnson, Brown.
2009: Armstrong.
2010: Henderson, Anderson.
2011: Chickillo, Grimble.
2012: Johnson, Howard.

We lead for one for certain. Recent events would make two. I guess Foster would make more sense than anyone as a third. We need another linebacker to compliment Perryman and E. Johnson (hopeful). I love Kirby's ceiling, but the others I'm not so sure. Not only is Buchanan out (probably), but also remember we lost Witt before the season began. Come on down.

LB

We should throw out all of the names, committed or rumors... and give odds that they are in a Cane uniform for UTough.

Bunny were you at with that Penguin hockey trash talking game. Stop holdin out and take the ice Pen fans

I don't know why my name is still not blue. my email address is legit. Thoughts?

#34

Oh lawd im not real again. That sh$# cracks me up everytime I see that sh$#. Again my email is out there so feel free to contact me and business will be arranged for you and your peoples.
Now on to sh$# that really means somethin. Bunny you and them Pens dont want any of these Panthers. That strike will last forever cause those Pens cant deal with that Panther stress. Time for to gear up with Panther swag and drop those soft Pens. You know im just messin around but we still runnin things
Have no fear bout the recruitin game Spacers. Just 2 spots left to be filled which will be for certain recruits

herbieibis

How well have those few 5* done us in the last 10 years. Grimble depending on what site was a 5*, the jury is still out on him, Chicklo the same. Howard had a rough time this year, the Duke was the bomb. Sean T, well is Sean T, not to high not to low. Yes we get a few 5* but 80% have been duds. Losing Buck, only hurts for depth purposes. Porter thinking about going pro is a joke but given his history of staying healthy, that's probably his best option and I'd hold the door open for him and welcome another ship to use. Taller, bigger, Faster & stronger should be Als's mantra.

So, which Internet pu$$y are U? Don't post anonymous for once. Don't be scurred

#34

Let me get this straight soft azz. So if someone lived in the hood we cant watch or talk hockey. You got life f d charmin azz. What the f would you like to discuss even though you hate the Space b!tch. You got you some crazy azz love for Soup I see. Aint nobody hatin on you worryin bout another mane for his attention. If gettin sh$# pushed in is your game then fo your thing bruh. Guessin Soup must of clowned on you so you must still have wayz of contactin him so do it he can give you my email and take care of things. I was bout to ask if any Spacers been out there gettin their crabin flow on but when you from the hood I cant be askin that.
Lets ignore the fact that the inventor of the Space aint close to bein as dark as me. Sh$# even that mane sayz hes as white as white can be

Mcginns ale house

Anybody comment on the Tubbs recruiting story?now that is funny.

CGNC

Cornbread, that dude "Posted by: #34? LMBBO | December 12, 2012 at 12:40 PM" is a troll. Do not feed the trolls as it gives them some sort of weird validation. Eventually they will starve.

WWIN

Damn even my client Ohio cane is getting gangsta now!!! Lol

#34, where I'm from seem like you bout to have folks on here wearin yo flag lol. You did some serious drive bys yesterday

j.w.

CGNC/ 34: dry weather today= time for the stables! And CGNC: you'll know the answer to this better than me, when was the last time 86 talked hockey? My guess is we may be about to witness the first time. :)

CGNC

j.w. - brilliant! I can actually not remember the last time - probably the Finals last season?????

LB

As for the 5 stars... I agree with you, Herb. Those are just stats.

We usually get one to two of the marquee names per year. So it makes sense for Foster to go along with our two others.

LB

I still think getting Foster is around 15%, based on the competitors (UGA, LSU, Aub). We've got a long way before NSD, and I expect that number to jump a bit.

Brevardcane

#34 does it look like our DL needs will be addressed in this class?

WWIN

CGNC,

You ready to get started on out LOF for next year yet?

#34

Da&@ bunny I didnt know peoples were that desperate that they seek attention on a da&@ computer. I was thinkin it was some Spacer thinkin they had a wish of feelin the pressure. I will ignore that garbage whenever I slide through the Space. When the bunny speaks I da&@ sure listen.
Willie Will holdin it down in Tenn. Bruh that gotz to be rough reo n Miami up there. F that sorry azz Rocky Top song. That is as annoyin as it gets. No drive by for me I gotz to make sure to look em in the eye when they feelin the pressure. Keep rep n Miami up there. It aint a quick fix for Miami so dont lose the faith cause its slowly gettin where it needs to be
West Coast JW dont think I didnt see you puttin that horse beast comment. I aint got much speed left but I will go Usain Bolt mode if 1 of them things made a move near me. Scary azz monsters

#34

A Brevard Cane rep n. Now we talkin
Yah the DL position is takin care of. 1 of the LOIs is bein held just in case the boi wants Miami. If he decides Miami just aint a place for him then an LB will get it. Miami cant afford missin on any D player they bring in here. This class has to have quality in order for the buildin of Miami to continue and not take a step back

WWIN

#34,

I feel ya on applying da pressure lol. Man I started off as the only person in da Ville wit "Da U" plate riding thru, now I see one almost everyday, so I put em up on game lol and they be throwin up da U now when I ride by lol. Every once in awhile one of em hit me up when I hop it out at a store or something askin me is that who I'm ridin wit and I be like yeah to da wheels fall off, they start giving props then and talk about how they grew up liking us lol, I tell em we'll be back. I HATE rocky top, but my pops and unc love em to death, he calls em the mighty vols lol and still be on my case about when they beat us back in the day. I watch em every week to make sure they lose and I'm glad as hell Butch didn't go there, that would have been some problems for me lol

WWIN

^^^^^

I see my pic don't cha, that ain't something I download that's how we get fresh wit da canes gear down here lol

j.w.

dont think I didnt see you puttin that horse beast comment. I aint got much speed left but I will go Usain Bolt mode if 1 of them things made a move near me. Scary azz monsters

LMAO! Just make two or three right turns, real quickly and you'll be in the clear 34.

#34

The Vol nation wouldnt know what the hell to make of Butch. Those fans want them a coach that is chill with the media and willin to kiss boosters azzez. He sure the f aint either 1 of those. Butch would of had the Vols on point in a year. He would a staff in there that had instant cred

UpNorthCane27

Whats the dealll people!! i see #34 out here taking care of biz and letting people know whats really good...

ANy word on DNO and the temple job?

laquinton

after a visit with with Golden and Jethro Miami is back in play with Massive Juco DT Levon Hooks.

#34

J.W. I aint sure if its true bout animals bein able to sense fear but if it is true then those beasts know im da&@ scared scared of them. Much respect to those that either drive them or even pets satans offspring. Dont forget bruh that it was a horse that brought down Superman

WWIN

#34, exactly and I don't want dem vols being no where close to on point lol. That's why I'm glad they got the last three coaches that they got lol. Kiffin was great, Dooley was even better, and I hope Jones is gon top em both lol

UpNorthCane27

Laquinton you beat me to it bro. I just reaad hooks visiting this weekend instead of auburn!!! Thats huge man real huge

UpNorthCane27

i find myself scratching my head when a highly rated juco DT chooses Kansas otu of places to play. Aren't we looking for dt's? is it grades that really prevent us from getting some of these juco kids?

WWIN

#34 & JW

Man one time at this camp I worked at during the summer we took the kids horse riding, this boy that was 6yrs old horse threw him in the bushes, they put that boy back on him and then he took him to the lake and laid down in the water wit the boy still on him lmao. It was funny but that killed any hope of me EVER getting on one

#34

UpNorthCane pimp yah DNof had 2 interviews with the Owls and I would say if he really wanted that job he could have it. If he dont act quick it will be to da&@ late so he best figure what he wants.

UpNorthCane27

Cmon Willie Will, riding horses is the Sh** real john Wayne type wild Wild West feeling man loll....

UpNorthCane27

DNo is a cool dude who be amped up and has passion it just hasnt worked out on defense for him.... I dont mind him taking the Temple job as long as we don't take a step backward and hire a real Bum..

UpNorthCane27

34 isnt defense your cup of soup??? better act quick whent that position opens up man... That way we got all the info coming in daily

#34

Yah the 1 glarin weakness DNof and in a small way Al has is that they havent been able to fully adjust to coachin Miami speed. Anyone can coach that Temple type program with ballahs bein slow cause they sure the hell aint over runnin a play. Basics can work in those type of programs. Sometimes you just got to say f it and just let the players loose. Coachin Miami speed is not as easy as peoples think. It takes a sh#!load of film watchin to understand how fast some of these kids really are

LB

Good stuff, 34. Seems like all your grade slackers are coming up here in WV with me. AJL, Leggett, and Grooms.

How's Malcolm Lewis doing?

#34

Yah UpNorthCane D is how I do. It aint easy havin to sit back and see where we are lackin talent and watchin players go different ways then the play calls for. Some have problems adjustin when the bright lights come on. They cant be takin that panic on the field with them

Ohio_Cane

I'm shocked Hooks dissed Auburn for us. Well, not too shocked. Mr. Closer, aka Al Golden visited him.

I dont say this often... or ever.. but We NEED this kid.

Jack

THIS IS A GREAT SITE!


GOOOOOOO CANES!!!!!!

herbieibis

Yeah Ohio,
Him & a couple more his size!

#34

Grooms is a player I hated to see go cause that boi has some serious skillz to his game. You could put him at CB, in the slot or at RB and he would excel in those positions. The other 2 I aint losin sleep over.
Its goin to be a grind for MLew to get back to football playin health. Just by lookin at him it seems like hes ahead of where peoples thought he would be but hes got alot to go to build the strength back up in that leg
Lane is the worst coach at knowin how to use the speed he has everywhere that piece of sh#! has been. USC has to be hatin that they brought his azz in there

CGNC

Posted by: Willie Will in Nashville | December 12, 2012 at 03:01 PM

LOL! The camp and trail ride horses can be the worst. They put up all day every day with people that can't ride and finally say "!^!^%!%" enough is enough.

WWIN - I am not good at LOF, ever. THis year I was decent.

UGoCane

Guys I got to tell you I enjoy this site for the news, updates, and info..
It is definitely a must read and the characters on here are awsome..
Keep it going, and thanks from one 'Cane die hard that have loved our 'Canes and can't get enough.
Thanks a bunch Soup....

SOUP

#34...I thought that U were just doing a drive by yesterday but now I see that U have made yourself at home? LOL

I guess everybody at Canespace is an "insider" now! That's cool, blog on.

#34

Nah Soup this is just a couple day drive thru. I come over to Tampa to check a few things out and also get with a certain coach in the area again to see where his thoughts are bout somethin I mentioned to you bout a week ago
This boi is goin right back into game tape mode as soon as I get back. You know I alwayz got you covered.
Aint nobody been given the sh#! I send you bruh and expect an email bout todays goin ons in bout 5 minutes.
These da#@ slurpees over here aint at the Miami level. Tampa needs to pick there game up cause they slippin on that

laquinton

so lost of alll what's going on with all this mess. im just hoping we get hooks and foster and thomas. no more project players

trianglecane

yeah.. hopefully things cool down tomorrow. I really don't care where the info comes from as long as it's accurate. if it's written in jive, country, snooty, jersey shore.. Just be right. God bless you all.

Brevardcane

We need to hook hooks

LB

I hope Malcolm gets back.

CGNC

triangle - you need to go to typepad and register there. Even then sometimes it kicks me out and I have go back in and sign in again

canefan

Knighton a 3* DT from NJ commits

Why are we getting 3 star players that nobody's ever heard of from Jersey? Can't we find somebody instate. This guy won't last, mark my words

A 3* from Jersey is like a 1* from Florida

Jack

Why is everybody so damn pissy today??

WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE!!!!

CaneRock

mark my words

Posted by: canefan | December 12, 2012 at 06:54 PM

And mark these words, Academic...Progress...Report! And if He turns out to be a half-way decent ball player, well then, that's just icing on the cake.

Posted by: CGNC | December 12, 2012 at 04:30 PM

LOL. Thats why i trust NO ANIMALS

We'll get it right this year, I would have won this year if i played by everybody else's rules lol. Let's start with offense, give me four candidates???

mi@mic@ne

Warren Sapp, University of Miami teammate (1992-1995): "He was a specimen. He looked great. He always looked great. He was tan, curly hair. He was the kind of guy you want your sister to date, because he was a nice guy. I always said that to him.

"When he was [first] there, I was a tight end in high school and I got [to Miami] as a tight end and linebacker, and they moved me over to D-line. I was real reluctant to do so. I thought I was a pretty good tight end and a pretty good athlete, but being 290 pounds, they moved me to D-line and said, 'We need you to rush the passer or you can go home.'

"So I came into the D-line room and sat down, and Dwayne Johnson walks in and says, 'What are you doing here?'

"I said, 'I’m here for your job.' So that’s how me and him had our introduction to each other. I said it jokingly, but I was there for his job."

Warren Sapp was a te in HS. I did not remember that. Why cant we find guys with motors and put them on the d line?

mi@mic@ne

It seems like to me we are looking for the wrong kind of player. We used to get athletes and put the weight on them. Why do they need to weigh 270 coming out of High School? Get a big athlete and pack the weight on him.

His Royal Dudeness

That was not real UMike or hassan. Both those guys know.

His Royal Dudeness

#34 & WWIN,

I can tell you, I hated horses. They scared the crap out of me. Then when I went through Teton National Forrest on a snowy winters day, it just kind of made sense. It turned out to be fun. I still dont trust them when they are roped up and stuff. I always think they will kick me or bite me, but they are fun to ride in the wilderness. Something primal about it.

CaneRock

Warren Sapp was a te in HS.

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 12, 2012 at 07:28 PM

He punted also.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 12, 2012 at 07:42 PM

I think we still do that. Just not as successfully as before. Calais Campbell and Allen Bailey come to mind. They were both good players.

CaneRock

"When he was [first] there, I was a tight end in high school and I got [to Miami] as a tight end and linebacker, and they moved me over to D-line.

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 12, 2012 at 07:28 PM

It's funny that Sapp said He was linebacker, because I always viewed Him as a fat ass linebacker, who was glorified as a D-Tackle (LMAO).

SOUP

That was not real UMike or hassan. Both those guys know.

Posted by: The Dude | December 12, 2012 at 07:49 PM

That is correct.

mi@mic@ne

Weve been getting a boat load of tes and i just question if they are athletic why not try switching them over.

His Royal Dudeness

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | December 12, 2012 at 08:20 PM

To DE?

His Royal Dudeness

I honestly dont think D'Onofrio or Golden want a Warren Sapp for their scheme. I think they are looking for a Vince Wilfork to plug the run and a Clay Matthews to rush the QB.

SOUP

Montreal-Cane

A.J. McCarron announces he’s coming back to Alabama for his senior season


We need to recruit players like him.

Montreal-Cane

Duke Johnson ‏@BrickByBrick_8

I'm gonna have fun over the break, but I still have to work hard I haven't accomplish anything yet...

And players like him too.

mi@mic@ne

My point is that all these players who put us in the top five on d in the country were nobodies coming out of hs. I remember guys like brown and sap, even wilfork kind of smallish when they were soph.

Seems to me that we want guys 300 pounds coming out of hs. I always question how athletic the big guys were. Just because a guy is big and benches more than anyone else doesnt mean hes gonna move like he needs to. So I always thought thats what we did back in the day when we were respected was to get an athletic tall guy maybe a lot underweight and then by his junior year we get him fully developed. So thats why we were always in the top five in the country on d.

His Royal Dudeness

Russell Maryland was another not so highly recruited guy.I think the difference between then and now was the culture at Miami. It used to be that losing was the end of the world. We developed the best players in the country not recruited the best players in the country. We also developed the best mentality for the game.

Montreal-Cane

If D'Onofrio is not the next Temple HC do you think Al will take him back?

Who should be our next DC???

Damn I don't post much anymore but I see mucho drama going on.

Why wouldnt he?

Gregg Williams should be our next DC.
