Nice article, 86.

Interesting article about the upcoming McDonald's hs all-American game in hoops. It'd be nice if a few of these guys could be Cane recruits. Getting a steady stream of these guys is what keeps the top programs where they are. To get to the top schools need to find a way to win without them first.

Based on the new spring roster vs. 2012 spring roster.

Biggest Gainers this off season:
DE Ricardo Williams: 31 lbs up to 251
DT Olsen Pierre: 31 lbs up to 296
CB Nate Dortch: 23 lbs up to 175
DE Tyriq McCord: 21 lbs up to 236
S Deon Bush: 16 lbs up to 195
LB JaWand Blue: 16 lbs up to 210
CB Tracy Howard: 15 lbs up to 185
WR Herb Waters: 13 lbs up to 185
TE Jake O'Donnell: 13 lbs up to 243
WR Robert Lockhart Jr.: 12 lbs up to 188

Biggest Losers:
OL Danny Isidora: 33 lbs down to 312
DT Dequan Ivery: 28 lbs down to 303
DE Dyron Dye: 17 lbs down to 258
TE Asante Cleveland: 10 lbs down to 260
OL Seantrel Henderson: 10 lbs down to 340

Looks like our team is getting a little bigger. Of all the returning players from last spring they put on a total 154 lbs. This includes the weight that is lost by some players.

Nice Article 86. OGV had me rolling with his U pose. U guys repped the Canes and the Space well.

j.w.

Great article, soup!

It was fun game to be at..of course a blowout is nice but I love a close exciting game like that..although the last couple minutes I almost bit my nails off..

86,

That was a great game to be at...I love blowouts but I love exciting games also. Im pretty sure in the last couple minutes I almost chewed my nails off.

I was in full PANIC mode.

OGV claims he was calm and confident, but I ain't buyin that.

orange 'n green in the vein

The second half I was feeling super-fly, but I did admit that the start had me considering getting kicked out after two possessions just so I wouldn't have to watch the rest of the game.

So in other words, it was reminding me of attending a home Miami football game where any mutant from Philly was blobbing along the sidelines.

WWIN

86,

Seen your comment on bleacher report. "Because he has some good connections". LOL

I wonder who he knows???

With 2013 recruiting now over (right?), I do like the trend below:

Four Star Recruits:
2008: 15
2009: 8
2010: 6
2011: 2
2012: 7
2013: 8

I'm hoping next year we get that back up firmly into double digets.

From Barry Jackson
UM has not and will not give any thought to self-imposing an NCAA Tournament ban in basketball.

They better not.

No news today?

TonyCane

No kidding skool. It would be like Charlie deciding to shred his golden ticket instead of going to Willie Wonka's factory.

CaneRock

Barry Jackson:

### Beyond Wednesday’s oral commitment from Class of 2014 Hialeah quarterback Alin Edouard – who got a call from Penn State Wednesday and whom his coach compares to Vince Young – the Hurricanes also have offered three other local quarterbacks: Class of 2014 players Treon Harris(Booker T. Washington) and Quinton Flowers (Jackson) and Class of 2015 left-hander Torrance Gibson of Plantation American Heritage.

Though Kevin Olsen has a good shot to be Stephen Morris’ multiyear successor starting in 2014, UM might add two local quarterbacks next year. “Flowers is a freak of an athlete, can throw 74 yards, and he and Harris are both high-level BCS guys,” analyst Larry Blustein said. Both like UM.

### UM baseball coach Jim Morris, whose team opens Friday, said he met three times with president Donna Shalala about the athletic director job (before it was filled by Blake James), “but I never thought I would be offered the job. It’s better for me to be the coach. It’s great Blake is A.D.”

Morris, who has taken UM to the College World Series 11 times in 19 seasons(most recently in 2008), said Shalala called him at 8 a.m. the day after UM was eliminated by Missouri State in the 2012 NCAA Tournament and expressed her full commitment to him.

### For those who have asked, UM has not and will not give any thought to self-imposing an NCAA Tournament ban in basketball. UM will release NCAA Tourney ticket info on Friday.

Apparently, this JUCO DT is still available. Maybe Golden has another ship to give out for this year?

Any word on the NCAA findings?

No news today?

Posted by: nemo2002 | February 15, 2013 at 08:33 AM

IF the NCAA news breaks today it will be mid to late afternoon, at the end of the weekly news cycle. BUT that is IF.

Pre83

Well, I almost just puked up my Cheerios!!

The local Sports Radio station here in Minneapolis is giving away, get ready for this, a pheasnt hunting trip with Vikings QB Christian Ponder & FSU HC JIMBO FISHER!

Well, it could be viewed as an opportunity; ) I'm just say in'

Pre83

And get this, in the same breath, the radio host said that coming up next is an interview with Yahoosports.com's Pat Forde to talk about why the cat's ass of NCAA BB are the Miami Hurricanes!

Forde giving The Pimp his vote for Nat'l Coach of the Year as well as big props to Larkin

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

FSU fans thinkin' Sony is theirs to lose.

Just like they thinkin' every 5 star prospect is theirs to lose.

Ohh what a great school FSU is!

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Is it me or are there more south florida kids who wants to be canes this year than last year??

Canesfan_1

FSU always preseason recruiting champs, turning into regular season chumps.

People, please think about it. They have no sanctions, no issues, great facilities, a well recognized name program, and top 1, 2, or 3 recruiting classes every year. Yet what do they have to show for it? I don't understand why there isn't more heat on Jimbo.

Posted by: Sean Spence is a Beast!!! | February 15, 2013 at 10:55 AM

YES, that is true, and 2014 is LOADED in SoFl. It is just part of the natural cycle of recruiting that some years they wanna be Canes (2012, 2014) and some years not so much (2013)?.

kenyon19ypr

Spence- Yes. There is so much more talent in Florida compared to 2013 and they want to be Canes. Good combo right?

NativeCane


Thank you 86Cane for the compliment. Don't forget that OGV is going to give me $500 if No-d is definsive coach of the year in the ACC..Probably wont happen but it could with the players we have returning. I have read every single blog since that fun night.It was worth the 3600 mile trip just to see some of the people on this blog. It was a fun and intertaining night. Ill be back.

I let it be none That I can't stand Donna, with regards to sports she is the worst prez ever, she was part of this Nevin fiasco and should be force to resign because it happen on her watch. SEC schools would have beatin the NCAA bloody with the collection illegal evidence

Golden must be pissed! I know I am.

Nobody commented on Kadji only getting 17 minutes due to fouls. He's got to avoid the reach in/ticky-tacky stuff. We are way better with him on the floor.

Posted by: indie499 | February 15, 2013 at 01:56 PM

Totally agree. Kadji is very versatile and he has to find a way to stay out of foul trouble and on the floor for UM to advance far into the NCAA tourney.

Hmm I wonder who makes more money. An Alabama line coach or a U assistant head coach
