I know several of you have asked about Mario’s media availability. We’re hoping to have something Friday morning. Once I get confirmation of place/date/time, I will let you know.

Holy guacamole, Canes beat the Tar Heels @ UNC. That is HUGE!

Great stuff 86. Big win by our Miami Hurricanes.

Nice!

Coach L. can get these kids hustling.

If we could just get HEALTHY, (and a bit more depth of BIG men), we could be a factor.

I am very happy to have Mario back at home. His energy and ability to recruit is a major assess.

mi@mic@ne

Mario is one of the guys who understands how the Canes dominated in the 90s and 2000s. I am confident that we will get back to being the quickest and fastest team on the field on both sides of the ball. It takes a great coaching staff to do all the things rite in order to run the table. I am confident that Al is getting the pieces of the puzzle put together for a run.

Common Sense

Big win by the hoops team tonight. They need to rack up as many wins as possible before Reggie comes back. When he does, only Duke, Maryland & NC State can compete with them in the ACC. Maybe FSU too because it's a rivalry. I hope he's back by the time they play NC State on the road...

I like the hire of bringing Super Mario back. Good job Al G. Sure.

I wonder when the Season Ticket prices will be posted for the upcoming season.

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

Yes, nice win by the 'Canes bball team. Coach L has them playing like a team on both ends of the floor unlike previous coaches.

Seth Davis has an article today in CNNSI and he leads off about the 'Canes and how Coach L's scheduling of non conference games will help them. Plus there is picture of Larkin in the article.

Fisch and Carroll visit Ricky Town in California a few weeks ago. A great move Considering Alabama is now hot on Ricky's trail. Ricky the only 10th grader at camp and still won mvp. Alabama was all over him and invited him to Alabama for visit. They want him.

UM Hurricanes football coach Al Golden always reminds his players to "uphold the legacy.''

Al is doing a pretty good job of it himself.

Bringing in Mario Cristobal as an assistant coach and associate head coach makes him the third former Hurricanes player to serve as one of the main assistants.

The others, of course, are linebackers coach Micheal Barrow and offensive line coach Art Kehoe.

Former UM players are thrilled. I spoke to a couple of them who were coached by Mario when he was a graduate assistant. Both were on the offensive line and started on the 2001 national championship team -- right tackle Joaquin Gonzalez and right guard Martin Bibla.

"I think Mario is a great hire because of his personality and attitude,'' Gonzalez told me. "He’s a winner. I was shocked when FIU let him go. It will be hard to find anybody that is filled with more passion to win. He’s ready to rock ‘n roll… that’s why he’s so good at recruiting.

"If Mario has to drive 18 straight hours to talk to a recruit, you bet your ass he’ll do it. He won’t wait for the plane. His intensity to work and be a winner is second to none.

I love his dancing, his vicious hits, and like all of you; I love pictures of him in orange and green with bare midriff.

Who doesn't love football midriff? I caught myself rooting for James Wilder, Jr. a little this year just because he's managed to circumvent NCAA uniform rules with the midriff-undertuck. I guess I'm just a fan of college football abs, and no one had better football abs than Ray Lewis.

He's one of the fastest football players around, but will Miami receiver Phillip Dorsett's speed translate to the track?

He'll find out this weekend in Kentucky as the St. Thomas Aquinas product joins the Miami indoor track and field team. He's scheduled to compete in the 60m dash and as part of the 4x400 relay team.

The Hurricanes will be competing in the Kentucky Invitational on Friday and Saturday at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

Dorsett led all Miami receivers in his sophomore season with 842 yards and 58 catches.

His explosive speed was obvious on his 21 plays that covered 25-plus yards. Career-highs came in consecutive games with 184 yards at Georgia Tec. He followed that a 191-yard afternoon including the game-winning 62-yarder against NC State with 19 seconds left.

With a little under four weeks remaining before national signing day, the Miami Hurricanes football coaching staff is buckling down on the recruiting trail.

Though the Canes only graduated four top seniors—Mike James, Brandon McGee, Jake Wieclaw and Dalton Botts—a need for more depth still lingers.

Head coach Al Golden is still pursuing a good number of players to replace those four key players, but certain positions are the focal point.

Here are those three positions that must be filled by signing day...

UMike

Although the Hurricanes finished last season at 7-5, there were a lot of exciting things many of us saw from the young team.

The offense, which only returned four starters from the previous year, had seven games in which they scored over 40 points per game.

Quarterback Stephen Morris broke school and ACC records while true freshman Duke Johnson proved to the entire country that he will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

The only problem with the Canes last season was defense. The unit finished No. 116 in the country in total defense and if they don't improve over the offseason, we may see another subpar year from Miami.

Here are five X-factors for the Hurricanes' 2013 season if they want to improve on that 7-5 record.....

Hiring Mario was a good move. He will help with recruiting. I see the Canes having a great year. Al has a plan.

I think it's a great hire. He has a track record of success, and head coaching experience. It's invaluable.

Recruiting wars are going to get nasty. "Get your licks in now."- Al Golden

As for Raising Canes, I remember that 3 Penny's goal was to document the first two years of Golden's tenure (per Freet during our conversation on the Space). However, seeing the popularity of them... I hope they extend that contract.

My worries about the 2013 class are over. Good times are coming...

...can't wait to see the new depth chart.

UMike

Duke Johnson also running track

UMike

Texican... I would suggest looking on Facebook for a page with cane fans in your area.. There is one for my area in chattanooga.. So i would think there would be one for you too.. Worth a look

canesteeler

Big win by the hoops team last night. NC hoop fans are not use to losing but they better get use to it this season. I am sure Mario has aspirations to be a head coach again, therefore I am going to enjoy his time back at the U. I think he will take recruiting to another level. I hear Pete Garcia is an egomaniac prick. Any word on when the NCAA is going to step the hell up and present UM with it's findings?

Why would anyone send their teenager to notre dame when something liek this is said to be true about Brian Kelly...

"Kelly is a good fit for the NFL, where he can focus entirely on football, and not on the things he isn’t into, like molding young men."

Posted by: LB | January 11, 2013 at 09:17 AM

•••Interesting quotes from that article, that lead me to believe that Coley will ink with UM on NSD:

"I'm not sure about that because I don't know too much about Coach Carroll. I'm sure Coach Golden made a decision that he believes we will work out to put our receiving corps to be even better."

One of the major story lines that came with former WR Coach George McDonald leaving Miami was how it would affect the recruitment of Bennett's star receiver, Stacy Coley.

"It's tough to say. I talked to Stacy about it earlier and he's just going to have to meet Coach Carroll and see where he plans to go with the receivers and see if that benefits him."

A positive for Miami is that RB's Coach Terry Richardson (Northeast alum) has been on Coley since early in the process.

"He's been involved from day 1."

Bennett's ties to Miami are another factor in favor of the 'Canes chances.

"It definitely helps Stacy that I played there. It's been awhile so I won't have the answer to every question that comes up, but I'll definitely be able to help with a lot of stuff since I went through it myself."

Canesport headlines Standish spoke with Mario and also may take other visits besides miami, anybody hearing anything about this? He seems to be very solid and i thought he was the Duke of this class so that's somewhat surprising to hear.

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | January 10, 2013 at 11:25 PM

With how our attendance was last year, they better bring back the $99 season tickets or in this year's case $119 since we have seven home games and they should just eliminate parking fees overall!

That will help our attendance number this upcoming season!

The general concensus is that he'll switch to a UM visit for the 18th. If he doesn't, I'll be worried, but just a tad worried.

Still think he's a Cane.

Thanks to ALL who are posting lots of comments on a regular basis, including this AM. I sincerely appreciate it!

UpNorthCane

Standish is the man he's gonna come in and ball believe it people the kid is big a few months on Utough ooo boy this kid is gonna be rock solid.

Standish needs to close the other recruits out on the 18th starting with his boy Tim Williams.

If Canesport posted that about TE Standish Dobard they should be slapped, spanked and made to stand in the corner. Shame on them!

Noobie...OK I'm only going to go over this ONE time for U so pay attention:

1. Canespace is a UM FAN blog, not a UM negativity blog. We specnd our time here CHEERING the Canes not bashing them.

2. Valid criticism of the team's performance is totally acceptable (see my article titled "Room For Improvement") but bashing of individuals is not going to be tolerated.

3. It is best to worry about yourself and not what others here on the blog do.

Carry on, and be calm...

As for Dobard, listen to the link above for the Caneinsight podcast. He's going nowhere, and he's probably our biggest recruiter of 2013 (as Ohio correctly pointed out).

Criticism is good and healthy. A team who is winless in bowl games since 2006 absolutely deserves it. But bashing a team on the rise with a great schedule vs. mostly crappy teams is unwarranted.

Noobie

Sorry, just wondering

I don't always agree with OGV, but I'm surprised his comments are getting deleted, like the one from yesterday

They're not offensive or profane, and he's a grown man and pretty smart.i hope he continues to post because its important to have different viewpoints. We don't all have to agree

Terrance Sullivan

I like our schedule got to win the Coastal Division, at least 10 games including bowl game. Would love for our Canes to win ACC title and win the Orange Bowl. The Road to Charlotte starts now.
