Fiirst loser.

All I want to see is (service-dependent) 5-star Collins throw that []__[] up.

As I stated on the previous blog this is a very real possibility. I am NOT calling it one way or the other and will wait and see.

Terrance Sullivan

Great article 86.

roachcane77

Not real happy with Mandingo lately.. gotta tell ya.

Seems WAY TOO happy to spread negatives about The U.

j.w.

Manny is just ddoing his job, sometimes it isn't glamorous. I don't see him taking pleasure at spreading bad news like Lebatard does.

roachcane77

You're right 86... "5 stars" don't guarantee anything... but, having said that, it would be nice to have about 13 "5 stars" lining up on NSD.

UMike

I got to admit..I DONT wanna be right about Collins lol

The Dude

Ha ha, if you liked it then you shoulda put a backup generator on it. Ha ha

Willie Will in Nashville

ohio,

don't you have a birthday this week?

The Dude

Worry not. Collins to the U.

I have to agree. I realize he's a reporter and is supposed to be objective so I could care less if he's a fan or not, but he seems awfully eager to spread bad news, even if it's less than accurate. In fact lately he seems to slant against the canes. He really messed up reporting the whole Kirkland thing and the baseball coach he was very unfair to. I read somewhere else that he accused the coach of being a pusher so I looked up the article. I was shocked to see he was flat out speculating that the coach was a runner for the team. He was the only reporter to take it that far.

I think something's happened where someone has pissed him off, maybe one of UM's media guys. Who knows but I think he's lost his objectivity.

Been away for a couple of days but what a weekend and what a Super Bowl! The more experienced team and coach won, which makes sense in these kind of games. The relatively older Ravens seemed lethargic after the power outage but thankfully they put it together when they needed to the most. I bet money that Reed would get an INT and he didn't fail. Rookie QB (basically) versus best safety of all time? Easiest money I ever made!

Very happy for all the new Canes Super Bowl Champions, especially the lesser known guys like Streeter and Berry. Those two always seem very engaged on the sidelines and hopefully will continue to develop and get more playing time in the future.

Tough luck for Gore but hopefully he'll get another chance next year. The 49ers will come back determined and will succeed as long as opponents don't catch on to their college-style offense. My guess is other teams will get better at slowing down the 49ers but they won't be able to stop them.

Here's to hoping Alex Collins picks the U tonight! Don't forget free pancakes tomorrow at IHOP!

Oh, and thanks for the Canespace welcome 86! I used to blog here a few years back as "CanesFanStuckInCali" and "CanesFanStuckInNYC" before that. Then law school and life in general got really busy so I had to slow things down a bit. I recently moved back to FL and decided to start blogging again, except that my old handles didn't apply anymore--I'm back home! So thanks again for the welcome but more importantly for keeping this great blog and community alive throug all these years!

Less than 48 hours till those those LOIs start coming in!!! I think we'll finish strong and pull off a few surprises!

GO CANES!!!

ARCane

Just watched the local news here in Arkansas and the top sports story was where is Collins going to play football. They were very excited. I got a good laugh from it. I think they were happy a recruit would actually have Miami and Arkansas as their final two. "He's the top running back in Florida so he has to be good!" lol hog fans here kill me

CGNC...believe it or not I deleted your email with your addy in it so I need U to re-send the email. Thanks!

Ohio_Cane

I think it was The Wizard who asked if I still thought NSD will be epic for Canes. Simple answer: YES! I'm not talking #1 class, cuz lets be honest, rivals and ESPN dont like us, but it's gonna be awesome.

We'll miss on a couple that everyone wanted and they'll cry.

We'll hit on a couple that some didnt think we would and they'll rejoice.

Overall, as long as I'm not more than 25% wrong plus MAYBE a surprise or 2, it will be epic.

Ohio_Cane

86, Roger that! Thanks!

See u all in a bit. Putting daughter to bed then preparing my Collins stream + twitter + Space

Ohio_Cane

Willie will, yes. My bday is the 7th ;-)

Thanks for remembering!

The Dude

Thanks for the coverage Ohio.

The Dude

I think Collins is a Cane though.

Hassan

Miami and NCAA might announce tomorrow a deal reached in the case.

86Cane

Hassy...HOLY SMOKES!

Would be FANTASTIC timing! Nice, Hassan!

UpNorthCane

Anybody know what channel the announcement will be on direct tv?

UMike

Hassan..U Da Man!..Hope that is correct

Alex Collins to Arkansas per Manny Navarro

I hope he's wrong and it could just be wishful thinking on his part since he's turned to a cane hater recently

Posted by: Canesfan_1 | February 04, 2013 at 07:08 PM

What happened to Manny? Dude has not said anything good about Miami for an age. With that said, SEC equals $$$$ ... how else could it be close? We're not talking Tide , LSU or Gators here.

LB

Good to hear, about the deal being reached.

Willie Will in Nashville

Willie will, yes. My bday is the 7th ;-)Thanks for remembering!

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 04, 2013 at 08:15 PM

Ohio_Cane

Well happy Bday to us both!

Maybe NSD will bring U a late present and me an early one!

The Dude

Alvin Kamara has a beer gut.

RBLCane

RBLCane

I swear recruiting gets worse every year...

TJL

Ohio_Cane

RBLCane

It's an hour long..damn if I stay up and he picks ARK or FSU gonna be pissed

Posted by: TJL | February 04, 2013 at 10:21 PM

ARCane

Does anyone know if this is a 30 or 60 minute show? Thanks in advance!

Posted by: RBLCane | February 04, 2013 at 10:17 PM

60 min

TonyCane

This is like the Mystery of Al Capone's Vaults.

I hope it has a better ending.

The Dude

Wow, okay. I'm done with this.

RBLCane

AC is next!

BTW 6000 people are watching that UStream link! That []_[] ratings boost never fails!

orange 'n green in the vein

Man, if this ever needed Manny to come and save this blog with a live chat, NOW IS THE TIME! Not watching BTW, just find these comment LOL worthy for all the wrong reasons.

Montreal-Cane

Kids need so much attention and forget about being humble and core values...Prima donnas...Any good kids out there like Duke Johnson and Mike James????????????????????

Ohio_Cane

Here we go, folks!

Alex Collins chooses...........

RBLCane

Here we go....

RBLCane

Could be me but tone when talking about []_[] doesnt sound good... talking a lot about Miami was only school he only knew growing up...

RBLCane

Says its not all about the coaching staff WRT ARK

RBLCane

Dragging... dragging... dragging... blah blah blah.... close to 7000 now logged in...

RBLCane

This kid is relishing all this attention... working hard to not tip his hand...

TJL

FRACK

Ohio_Cane

Arkansas......

RBLCane

At some point you gotta wonder if the recruiting shows and sites arent paying these kids....

here we go...

Dammit.. Arkansas

TJL

He looks 30 years old anyway

orange 'n green in the vein

The Randy, laying the smack down on Special K's favorite plushie at every turn.

UMike

I hate to say I told you so..but...lol....Still lots of other targets out there

The Dude

Seriously?

RBLCane

Oh well... Best of luck to him... Seems like a really smart and articulate kid...

NEXT!

GO CANES!!!

Montreal-Cane

What a dumb ass... The kind of kid i don't like just like the other ass.... Keith Bryant

LatinCane

I thought he was going to pick Arkansas. Why would a kid go to Atlanta to make this announcement? He probably didnt want anyone to sway him after making his decision.

kenyon19ypr

:-(

The Dude

Good luck to him. I will be laughing my @ss off when he wants to transfer.

Da U N Houston

And there it is.....Go Canes!

O, and I'll bet the house that we win a championship before Arkansas.

LatinCane

...sway him "before" making his decision.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

When you're choosing a college away from your own city, you know he is bound to choose another school.

Well, there goes that!

Hassan

Wow
Is all I can say

canezilla

WELCOME TO ARKANSAS WHERE THE MEN ARE MEN AND THE SHEEP ARE NERVOUS

Darby

Good luck to the kid.

Doesnt want to share the spotlight with Duke.

Move on.

orange 'n green in the vein

Monty, if you don't stop being negative you aren't going to like yourself. Besides, this one's for Keef, 100 times the recruiting troll that this Collins guy was.

Look at it this way, if The Pimp couldn't close the deal for Golden, Al wasn't doing it either on his own as Brissett's mom will tell you.

Hope getting Ice Harris 'in line' was worth it for the mutants from Philly.

LatinCane

I agree Spence. That was definitely a sign.

Da U N Houston

Lets not bash the 18 yr old kid. He has a right to make the Wrong choic....I mean he has a right to make a choice!

You either ride or collide with the storm!

Ohio_Cane

Best of luck to Collins. Very talented kid. Sad to see him get away.

ON TO THE NEXT ONE!

IF U AIN'T WITH US, U AGAINST US!

jerry

Golden must have already known... I think thats why he offered Lockley...he got desperate for depth at RB... may more so since we could also not get the fullback.....

mi@mic@ne

YOu got to love all the Razor backs in the superbowl..lol... what have the Razor backs done in the last 40 yrs? These kids make dumb decisions

Dan

When do the Shannon boyz start demanding Shannons return?

Luke doing backflips.

BigWindyCane1

Cannot fault AG for not trying to recruit the Collins and the rest of the S.Fla. prospects. Golden presented a great package - great NFL legacy, best college education in Florida and the highest graduation rate for football players in the country. Collins chooses Arkansas, which probably is in Arkansas, not school that will prepare you for a job a Florida and probably a low graduation rate for football players.

I predict will get rolled in the SEC West next year and beyond.

That decision just does not make sense.

thirstybuzzardcane

If we can't get even get Collins.....it's going to be a long day on Wed.

TonyCane

Collins, just remember these names:

Deonte Thompson
Jacoby Brissett
Matthew Patchan
Bryce Brown

Enjoy your time in Arkansas. All the best.

The Dude

God I hope we play Arkansas in a bowl game soon and knock him out.

RBLCane

Feels like a home loss...
