2013 DT Tevin Lawson (6'4, 280) is an option Golden could steal from LSU. They want him to Gray shirt.

86, I went on a little rant on twitter. Feel free to delete if U want. Nothing bad, just a rant about Golden's recruiting and how he has to defend himself.

MUST BE CAREFUL YOUNG DANIELSON!

Have not read it, was out for a while, but I will check it later. NBD, I've had my moments on Twitter also. People forget about it in 30 minutes over there after 1,000 new tweets post. Still better to be safe then sorry.

Some stories you just can’t make up.

Like the tale of how a little-known tight end from a small, private school in Miami became the nation’s most dominant defensive end and a big-time university’s highest-ever draft pick.

Try all you want, but you simply can’t embellish the remarkable story of how Andre Wadsworth came to be one of the most celebrated athletes to ever play football at Florida State University.
Scene 1: Miami. Early winter, 1993.

Wadsworth realizes his football career may be coming to a quick end following his senior year at a tiny school called Florida Christian. Though he’s tall at 6-foot-4 and carries enough weight on his 210-pound frame to look the part, no college recruiters chased him.

He was a non-prospect in talent-rich Dade County, where the big-school kids were the prize for colleges all over the country.

But then-FSU defensive line coach Chuck Amato got a tip about Wadsworth during a recruiting trip. Amato knew he couldn’t possibly offer a scholarship, but he also heard enough to know he should at least make contact.

Wadsworth said he was pretty sure he was going to attend a large university — possibly even Miami — and be a regular student until Amato encouraged him to fill out a recruiting questionnaire and explained the term “recruited walk-on” to him.

Encouraged by the attention Amato showed, Wadsworth took a gamble. He drove to Tallahassee when the walk-ons were allowed to report, arriving at least two weeks behind the scholarship players.

Taht's why Cochrane firm was hired. :) I didn't know they had any experience in family law, though, which would be the only thing that could hold up the NOI (and that is if a custody decree could be interpreted as allowing mom to sign all legal documents).

BEST POST IN A LONG TIME BY VfB_Cane:

NSD has come and gone...Some Cane fans came away with the impression that FSU and UF gor far more talent than we did. Really?

I did a little number crunching, based on three recruiting sites, and tried to eliminate the size factor for better comparison.

Rivals
Overall ranking: UF #4, FSU #9, UM #44
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 3.67 (#7),FSU 3.57 (#10), UM Avg. 3.40 (#12)

Scout:
Overall ranking: UF #8, FSU #16, UM #28
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 3.63 (#8), FSU 3.41 (#13), UM 3.29 (#18)

247:
Overall ranking: UF #4, FSU #8, UM #17
Ranking based on average grade:
UF 91.21 (#4), FSU 89.19 (#9), UM 88.80 (#12)

My take:
(1) Eliminating the size factor, UF's signing class was top 5-10, FSU top 10-15, UM top 15-20.
(2) Given that grading recruits is an inexact sciece at best, the difference between UM's class and what FSU got is negligible (basically, it's one 5* signing with us instead of going to Tallyville)
(3) UF is the last of the Florida schools to win a NC and is in the SEC. In today's recruiting world, this will work wonders for you (not necssarily on the field - we'll find out).
(4) No need to hit the panic button. While Golden&Co. didn't set the world on fire yesterday, the talent gap between FSU und us is small enough so that in can be made up by proper talent development. Neither FSU nor UM have excelled in that area for quite some time now.

Per ESPN...

'Decked out in camouflage overalls and flanked by his father, Johnny Collins, his aunt Loretta Collins and his grandmother Beverly Collins, Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation) signed the letter at BOKAMPER'S SPORTS BAR.'

... Who signs their LOI at a sports bar?!?! Apparently AC and his father. Maybe, he will be better off at Arky!

Yep, thanks again!

PS - I didn't do anything unsafe on twitter, IMO. Not cursing rant or anything. Just facts and opinions.

86Cane

Ohio...I read your rant on Twitter and it was fine. And completely called for. Be calm and carry on.

Canezitis

I love that the coach from Edison basically shut sileo up. I listen to that show from the Internet since I live in Cali just to see how big of a douche he'll be. I love how he calls out others for their hypocrisy, then claims he basically bleeds orange and green and at every turn wants to bash the program for one reason or another. It's one thing to point out some faults, but its another to totally disregard the truth. But this is guy that's close to Luke. Now I agree with him in that we need 70% fla kids, but like the Edison coach said, the kids don't trust that everything is going to be ok with the sanctions and that's why they can't trust the coaches. I hope he does take sileo to the inner cities like he said he would, then maybe he'll shut his mouth about golden and the way he does things. Just my rant for the day.
Go Canes

"There's going to be a lot of people who didn't stand with us who are going to be remembered for not standing with us," Golden said.

Think he means Ice Harris? lol


Posted by: UMike | February 07, 2013 at 03:02 PM

When the Canes blow out FSU this year and win the ACC, then where what influence will "Ice" Harris have? All his players will want to go to the U and there will be nothing he can do about it.

The days of recruiting 6 or 7 players from one school are gone. Although I admit 6 was pretty good, there has not been one BTW player that has been dominant in at UM. As for the MNW class of 2008, the best player was never recruited by Shannon - Levonte David. David registered 139 tackles as a rookie for the Bucs last year.

Ice's boy Shannon never won the ACC coastal and all Shannon recruited was BTW and MNW football players. AG won the coastal with the threat of sanctions and a bunch of freshmen and sophomores carrying the team. There is no doubt who the better coach is.

There is a lot of animus toward AG, and it is unjustified. I believe Thomas never intended to go to UM, and Ice Harris knew it. I also believe that they wanted to get a Scholly for Kirkland, but DK is an average OL who needs a lot of work.

I am happy with this class, and I think Golden will return UM to glory very soon.

I agree that the recruiting will be better next year, but blowing out FSU...ehhhhhh, I just can't go there with you.

But here's the difference between []_ _[]S, and FSU...Based on what they did last season, FSU has to prove a HELLUVA! lot more than we do.

Sarasota 'cane

Hey CaneRock, we have enough talent to beat UF, FSU, and Win the ACC! I truly believe that. And we do not require any recruits to do it. We match up well against the ACC and UF next season in my opinion.

Go 'canes!

Terrance Sullivan

Yes sir Sarasota, also when the Arkansas Razorbacks have another losing season recruits that left South Florida to go to Fayetteville gonna have the Gas Face.

Mcginns Ale House

Can anyone tell me the name of a good player we have had from Jacksonville?I know
we must have had some,just could not think of any when asked.

Mcginns Ale House

Sarasota, I think you are right about beating fsu and uf.We catch uf early and at home and a new oc, I believe. With a bad offense already, but a really good defense they may be favored, but not by much.
fsu away but new coaching staff and a midget qb could be just the medicine we need.

Tonycane

First Shannon. Now Golden. Somehow I think if Jimmy Johnson himself were to step out of a time machine and become coach of Miami, he would be hated by certain Miami coaches.

Ohio_Cane

Maybe the Pens can trade Vokoun back to the Caps mid-game so they have a chance?

Lol, Pens > Caps

Mcginns Ale House

These high school football coaches in dade remind of the LL baseball coaches.You Know the ones that dont want there kids playing for the junior high or high school because they are the only ones that ever coached them.They feel they own the kids and feel some type of debt owed to them and are affraid of somebody else getting some credit. The good they do goes away when they do not know when to step back and be a spectator again.

Mcginns Ale House

Not a lot of faith in Coach Dno, but that is a good looking defense we have coming back.If a couple of the 9 or 10 def lineman we have stup up...you never know??

Thank you Trevor Harris! This is the last year that this NCAA BS will be relevant!

The University of Miami’s comprehensive drug testing policy, enacted in 1995, continues to evolve as the methods and reliability of testing have improved and as more drugs have been introduced into the world of competitive sports. The University’s program is monitored by a University committee, which includes medical professionals, and is overseen by a Medical Review Officer--currently, a former UM Miller School of Medicine physician--who ensures the integrity and confidentiality of the drug testing program. An outside third-party firm administers the tests and provides results to the University. Since 2005, approximately 3,380 student-athletes have been tested more than 10,000 times by the University, in addition to drug tests administered by the NCAA. During that period, no student-athlete has tested positive for anabolic steroids. The University of Miami, like many of our peer institutions, the NCAA and many professional sports leagues, does not currently test for Human Growth Hormones. The University of Miami's drug testing policy is consistent with those at most NCAA Division I programs and provides more stringent penalties--including game suspensions for first-time positive results--than many of our peers. As stated last week, we have initiated an internal review involving an employee and will continue to monitor developments."

TonyCane

Some quick postscript on NSD for Miami:

-1: That's the total difference in this year's class between number of 4 and 5 star recruits versus the number of 2 and 3 star recruits. The previous three classes had a number that was heavily lopsided in favor of lesser star players.

4: Equal to the number of years since the Canes had been able to recruit two 4* defensive backs, as they did yesterday.

5: The number of years since Miami last landed a 4* quarterback, as it did with Olsen on NSD.

7: The number of years since Miami has landed a tight end as highly rated as Sandland.

8: The total number of wide receivers that Al Golden has signed in his first three years. That's one more than the total number of wide receivers that Larry Coker signed during his SIX year tenure.

OFF TOPIC WARNING:

MIAMI (AP) — Two young men who became "stranded and disoriented" while taking part in a python hunt in Florida's Everglades were rescued Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

The Broward County sheriff's office said in an email Thursday night that units responded to a call about the missing men at about 4 p.m. Air rescue units began a search of the area, and the hunters were found about a half-hour later at a location 15 miles west of U.S. 27 at the northernmost border of the county. A helicopter landed in the Everglades and transported the two men to rescue units a few miles away.

The news release said the victims, ages 22 and 25, "complained of lightheadedness and weakness and were suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration." Firefighters were told they were from Tennessee. The men, who have not been identified, were treated at the scene and declined to be transported to a hospital.

More than 1,500 participants of a month-long python challenge have helped to capture 50 Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades.

The Canes have what it takes in 2013 to win the ACC in both basketball and football. Basketball is now obvious.

In football, the Canes have the ACC's best RB, best KR, best QB, the best OL and a good group of TEs. On defense, the Canes will have a lot more experience and through U tough will have more stanima, conditioing, strength and consistency. The Canes D can only get a lot better.

This is the year for the Canes to make that move back to the top of the ACC and college football. Go Canes~

DeployedDiehardCane

My final thoughts post recruting is that we landed a small but good and solid class. Honestly I wasn't too hurt bout Keef(needs maturity and dudes a clown) and DK(I trust Kehoe's eval, plus he gets paid to do that stuff not me) and from what I read he wasn't too impressive at the camps UM had, unlike what Kehoe said about Sonny. The 6 thing hurt but the more I read in between the lines of things, imo he was never coming here and the only thing the DK saga did was put USC above us acording to him. Not every blue chip kid from Miami is or wants to be a cane and if he wasnt down with us then f him. Hope our big boys on the line put his ass down when we play. His justification for choosing FSwho(so fam could go see him play was retarded btw). The one that really sucked was losing Bostwick to the Gayturds. He was supposedly a Miami lean for the longest and assumingly was ready to join his cuz Armbrister but that chump took one away from us that filled the biggest position of need. Maybe he'll be the next Luc, we'll see. Don't know if the AC being a silent and then renegging at the last minute is true or not but if it is $$$$EC and that phat phuck definitely swayed him cause of the boys he's got on the Arky staff. Hurt but I'd rather have players that WANT to be here. Good luck with that turf kid. BTW, McFadden injury prone and so is Felix Jones, coincedence? Grace and Coley are prime examples of local kids that WANT to be canes, it's in their DNA same as Artie and Jamal. Can't wait to see them ball out. Everybody that we got wanted to be here and that's all we should want. AQM and Bond will help the pass rush tremendously and while we did strike out at tackle hopefully one of our guys step up big time. The Nigerian boys could pleasantly surprise. If Gus the Bus does anything to resemble Mike James we'll be good with that. Upgraded our TEs drastically and Gall and Standish are OOT guys that repped us hard during the recruting process and showed us how much they want to help us get back to the old days of winning. We'll have Big Ray around to make sure lil Ray puts in work and we picked up a qb for the future both with UM bloodlines. Overall, with all the drama and NCAA black clouds hindering us even though not as exciting as last year Al did good. 7 out of 10. Good and solid. Look at the glass half full not the half empty portion. 86, I'm down with some more spanish stuff on herre, lol. Dimelo!! Great to be a Miami Hurricane, they wouldn't understand and GO CANES and to all the haters especially the ones on a Canes blog trolling GET A F'ING LIFE.
