Wow!

#116... WOW ,D'No's even worse than I thought!

Terrance Sullivan

86 thanks for these great articles. I really appreciate it. Yes there is improvement that needs to be made in all facets of the game.

roachcane77

LOL... SOUP you caught my joke!

roachcane77

"Any high school recruit that plays defense that is coming to Miami this Fall has the chance to play and play now."

In the famous words of the master blogger...

"And there IT IS right there!"

(Nice job, as usual SOUP.)

Sully and Roach..."I GOT THIS!"

Lots of REALLY good recruiting stuff is breaking tonight. Can't share it here but will tomorrow by email for the insiders.

GOLDEN IS GOD!!!

I think on defense we really have to improve on 3rd down. Too many times we would play solid defense for 2 downs and couldn't get the job done.

Opponents 3rd down completion percentage: 42%
In wins: 37%
In losses: 50% (yikes)

Now compare that to other teams

Bama: 32%
LSU: 31%
ND: 36%
FSU: 27%
UF: 32%

Lots of "Room for Improvement"

86Cane

TLuv...GREAT POST! I did not do that specific research but U did. Much respect.

TLuv

Glad to contribute 86

TLuv

I think the bad 3rd down completion percentage was 2 part...

1. A lot of times opponents gashed us on 1st and 2nd down, leaving 3rd and short.

2. We had absolutely ZERO pass rush.

But I think that'll change once this guy arrives on campus. Kid is a stud.

Yeah him and McCord and Chick and well U get it, oh yeah and that other guy who was supposed to go either Bama or ND, what's his name? LOL

Now if we could only get Tim Williams and another DB in the mix we might be set?

roachcane77

I'm very intrigued by that Carroll tweet... it can ONLY be good stuff, and he is usually VERY dependable with his info!

C'Mon NCAA let's get this over with already!

laquinton

great article 86 ! defense must be great or hell flawless. come on & d'no ! getitddone

Da U N Houston

Wonder what the onslaught would be if the NCAA came out and told us we done enough, how many kids would be calling us instead of the other way around?

86Cane

Houston...Estoy muy contento! Y tambien estoy seguro que todo El Mundo esta llamando a la Universidad de Miami en este momento para jugar en el equipo!

Carroll really let me down when he clarified that his tweet meant nothing but a conpliment about the compliance staff haha hopefully the NOA comes soon though. Getting sick of the wait.

The Philadelphia Eagles have interviewed Notre Dame's Brian Kelly for their coaching vacancy, league sources told ESPN.

Tonycane

On a side note, out here at CES 2013 and it is awesome. LG has a slew of ultra-hd 4k televisions and sharp showed several 8k televisions too. Saw a 3d 4k television today that did not require glasses. Awesome stuff. If anyone had a chalk wall like nbidia did last year I will proudly put the U logo up there.

longtimecanefan

D'No should be congratulated. It wasn't easy to rank behind teams like Buffalo, Kent State, Pacific, or Ball State. Good thing the "Sisters of the Poor" gave up Div I football or we'd rank behind them too.

I'll keep my focus on next year, and keep saying one more year. Either they improve or it's time to clean house. No more cheap talk about schedules, recruiting, blaming Randy, The Clapper, or anything else.

For schools like this rank ahead of the U it takes alot of doing......

UMike

TypePad ate my long post! GRRRRR!!

HE DID THIS TO GET MORE MONEY FROM NOTRE DAME

LB

I know this... I'm Facebook friends with BC, and he doesn't post unless it's something extremely relevant.

Add in the interface with PapaCane and 86, it's a logical assumption that something positive happened regarding UM's compliance department.

UpNorthCane

Good morning peeps,

Wouldn't it be funny if Brian kelly bounced on the Domers loll....

Big Weekend next week on Campus we need hit it out of the park with all of the recruits that are visiting.

And 86, you nailed it man room for improvement is correct and i think its coming this season the boys will be alling on defense when the young guys they'll be hungry to change it around!!

Ohio_Cane

According to Pete Ariz, Figueroa and Knighton are on campus. Waiting to confirm Odogwu and Sandland

laquinton

Continuing to hear that several teams including Miami covet Duke WRs coach Matt Lubick" from football scoop ! ok 86

UMike

Even though MIAMI is a private University that doesnt have to disclose the NOA, I would imagine if we got it the media would know and it would be all over. Not the actualy allegations themselves, but that we got the notice..imo

UpNorthCane

Laquinton you possibly made 86' day and week with that information.....

Ohio_Cane

86, check email. More info from yesterday's news.

Cant really argue the logic..guy takes 3-star "big 3" leftovers and makes them All ACC WR's....while we have 4-star guys dropping balls left and right lol

UpNorthCane

Hey man bring Lubick in, if he can recruit the way he coaches then its a no brainer, a home run hire if it happens.

CaneInsider - According to sources former FIU HC Mario Cristobal is awaiting decision from OC Jedd Fisch, its expected as early as today. #canes stand by

UpNorthCane

Ohio what does that mean, what decision from Fisch?

UMike

According to CaneInsider Mario Cristobal is awaiting decision from Jedd Fisch..expected as early as today...wonder what desicion..if Fisch wants him, or if Fisch is leaving? Hmm

UMike

That has me a little worried..we cant afford to lose Fisch IMO

UMike

Im going to assume he means that Fisch need to approve of the hire...hopefully

Ohio_Cane

Posted by: UpNorthCane | January 10, 2013 at 10:39 AM

Pretty sure it's up to the OC to pick his WR, RB, etc coaches.

Fisch isn't leaving. He's approving the hire.

UMike

Lauderdale Lakes (Fla.) Boyd Anderson High School ATH Eddie Jackson (6’2/180) is exploding onto the scene. In two months time, he has picked up offers from perennial powers such as Alabama, Florida State, and LSU. Jackson also holds offers from Tennessee, Arkansas, Hawaii, and SMU. Although, National Signing Day is less than a month away, he is wide open.

Going into his senior campaign, Jackson knew that the offers would be coming in late. Not playing football his sophomore and junior year, he had a lot of catching up to do.

“I feel like my hard work paid off, it’s a great feeling.”

The South Florida product is being recruited to play multiple position at the next level. Alabama wants him at defensive back, while LSU would like him at receiver and possibly kick returner.

The University of Miami was recruiting him at one point, but since receivers coach McDonald left they have not recruited him.

“I don’t hear nothing from them(Miami) anymore.”

Earlier in the season, he was able to take an unofficial visit to Miami, and there was a lot to like.

January will be a very hectic month for the standout athlete, as he plans to take multiple official visits to some of the prestigious schools in the nation. His first visit will go to Florida State, and his second to Alabama. He is unsure of where he will go for his third, but as of now it is between LSU, Tennessee, and Arkansas. If the Hurricanes were to offer him soon, he would consider taking an official visit there too.

His reaction to the Alabama offer that he received today.

“I was just happy, just speechless you know… I came from nothing to something.”

Growing up, Jackson rooted for Florida State, which makes their offer that much more special.

Ohio_Cane

If Eddie Jackson goes to Bama, our chances with Coley increase a lot.

Like I been sayin all along. I did my research, I know who's who and what's what.

UMike

That was actually the first time I ever heard the name Eddie Jackson lol

No, it's not. He's the guy that FSU offered to try and get Coley to commit.

Ohio_Cane

Like I said...

CaneInsider - Fisch not leaving, Mario waiting on decision from Fisch to be hired

UMike

Ohio...now I remember....man FSU plays dirty...they tell kids to stay commited and flip on signing day..offer friends who have no other D1 offers etc

AND send commits on big recruiting weekends for other schools to try and keep them from committing while they're there. **COUGH** KERMIT **COUGH**

UMike

Yupp..forgot about that..I got to admit..I really enjoy having a smart head coach

Tonycane

I wonder how many times Fsu can afford to offer friends of top recruits? Do it enough and they can really create depth issues.

Big Sonny

The only reason our passing defense looks half decent, is because teams figured out they can run on us, and they stuck with it.

...My biggest problem with last years defense, was in philosophy. It a fact that it's proven we weren't the strongest in the trenches, but yet we remained vanilla???

There were times where we aggresive, and applied pressure in the redzone, and it worked... I guess I'd like to see more of that on a regular basis, instead of it only being a factor when our backs are against the wall inside our own 20; at the end of the game.

Help is on the way with the pass-rush (D. Bond, T. McCord, 2nd year freshmen), and if we can get C. Porter to play all year, things should improve.

Still want to see an attacking defense though!

Go Canes!!!!

YEEEEEES! I almost shit myself. I'll probably shit myself on NSD. Fingers Crossed. Welcome home Mario! There's a storm brewing and it's moving real steady towards the state known as the NCAA. Lol, WHOOOOO. Sorry y'all but had to get that out of my system.

Ohio_Cane

HUGE recruiting advantage! Like the Cristobal hire. Glad to see Brown a grad asst too

YESSSIR, most definitely. I just feel it in the air. Glad to see the optimism coming from other TRUE canes on here. Couldn't stand reading the herald anymore, too many front-running/bandwagon/trolls/haters on there.

UMike

Da U..at least out TE held on to the ball lol...dont worry, it will only be for a year lol

Keoki

I think Cristobal has put himself into a good position should Golden ever depart, after several NC's that is...

CoCane

The ugly truth...

DT's

Darius Smith: (2*) Lost too much weight to play the "plug" style that made him a difference resulted in a horrible senior year.

Curtis Porter: (3*) Talented & experienced but injured too often. Only played in the last 4 games, missing the big games when he was really needed...

Luther Robinson: (3*) last year was his 1st season in shape & getting a lot of reps.

Olson Pierre: (3*) Had to put on weight from DE size to DT. 1st season with big PT.

Jalen Grimble: (5*) So far just a flat out bust.

Corey King (1*), Dequan Ivory (3*) & Earl Moore (3*). 3 frosh that were too small, underdeveloped & inexperienced to play but played because the veteran's played like shyt. Hoping they would provide a spark ended up in them being paved like a new street. Smh

DE's

Shayon Green (2*) 1st year playing as redshirt junior due to an injury plagued career. Converted from a LB & he played like it.

Kelvin Cain (2*) Another DE converted from LB that played like it.

Anthony Chickillo (5*) Plays hard but should be on the weakside instead of strongside. The DL that requires a double team but he's not good enough yet to beat them. Someone help the man dammit!!!

Ricardo Williams (3*), Jelani Hamilton (4*) & Tyriq McCord (4*). 3 frosh that were talented but not ready make a serious impact. Played a lot due to lack of veteran's producing.

Most of the veterans weren't talented enough, healthy enough or even experienced enough. The frosh just played like frosh. Stars ain't everything in recruiting but you need more than what we had last year. Two 5* & two 4* out of 14 (none of them juniors or seniors) d-lineman that played, obviously isn't enough. I hate to say it but based on talent & experience the d-line was what it was. DAAAAAAM!!! No'D & Jethro do deserve 1 more year... Smmfh

MassivCane

Not sure what to think about Carroll going to the WR coach position. But I do like Mario coaching the TE's.

CaneRock

Great hire with Cristobal, but BC as the WR's coach?????????

You're entitled to your opinion, but I was less than impressed with Carroll as a TE coach. But hey, that's just me, we'll see...

HawaiiCane

Yes, lots of excitement, but lots of questions. Is this upsetting for Fisch with Cristobal getting a associate HC title? Is Carroll just Fisch's understudy? Will this help us with Coley or any other recruits?

laquinton

well mario is a talented coach and he has coach te's before and offensive line. carroll im not sure about... some of our out of state recruits arent his guys soooo

laquinton

Hahahahah I completely agree with both of you.

Posted by: Felipe | January 09, 2013 at 07:10 PM


LOL you guys!!!! Come on now, she is pretty. She was also Miss Alabama and probably also has an agent. Do you guys really think it was per chance that they "spotted" her in the stands??? That was a media ploy all the way.

UMike

My only worry about this hire..is that it isa one year deal (not the problem), but who is being pushed aside, stepped over or made upset for just one year of service? Can there be more than one associate head coach?

CoCane

Dam... I was dropping my post before I saw the good news. WELCOME BACK SUPER MARIO!

The popular theme song, "Welcome Back", written and recorded by former Lovin' Spoonful frontman John Sebastian, became a No. 1 hit in the spring of 1976. The show was originally going to be called Kotter, but that was changed because of the theme song lyrics. Sebastian has said he tried to find a more general theme for the song after being unable to find any reasonable rhymes for Kotter.

CGNC

ohio - cornbread is talking smack with me - he emailed "the Panthers Are Your Daddy". LOL he needs to get his own material ;-D

Posted by: CoCane | January 10, 2013 at 01:08 PM

Yes! Another nice looking coach on the sidelines

86Cane

From last January 2012:

Former Miami Dolphins star Mark Duper held a news conference Tuesday to document his recent health battle: renal cancer.

The wide receiver recently underwent surgery to remove his right kidney at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Duper discovered something was wrong during the Dolphins Cycling Challenge, which honored former teammate Jim Mandich, who succumbed to bile duct cancer, and raised money for the University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

herbieibis

The Herb says this about the "Crystal Ball", What? I get the recruiting part of it but he's a former O-Lineman. Okay he's a legacy and I wasn't to enthralled with Brennan's work with the TE's or as Nat'l recruiting coordinator. I mean, how many nat'l recruits do we have? I'm all for this working but I'd rather have a WR coach that actually played the position and has coached it and the same with the TE's. This was done purely for recruiting, which maybe ain't a bad thing.

CoCane

Lol! Thanks CGNC but I'm not a coach ;-)

Just scrolled over to Warchant to see if they had any news to offer about some of our boys and Lo-and-behold, there it was. Those boys believe everyone loves them and from what they believe it would not surprise them if Bryant didn't verbal to them this weekend. The also believe, since Dawsey is still coaching at FSU Coley is theirs for the taking. Kerr is visiting and they feel after the visit he too shall be on board. Of course they also believe they have Kirkland and Thomas's last visit will be to FSU. The Gaul of those guys but I will say this, I've kept up with recruiting for 40 years and they have been in the past, one of the better closing schools around. I don't know how that pans out for them this year, with all the coaching changes but you have to wonder & worry because 4 of those 5 guys we need, BAD!

Former University of Miami standout Mario Cristobal has been named Associate Head Coach and will coach the tight ends for the Hurricanes, head coach Al Golden announced Thursday.

With Cristobal's hiring, Brennan Carroll will expand his role to become the wide receivers coach and take a larger role in the passing game after previously coaching the tight ends in 2011 and 2012.
