Nice 86. Go Canes.

Canezitis

I bet Danny Dillard's not upset with ac's decision. Time to step up big guy. I can't wait until this NCAA crap is over , which will likely be the day after signing day. Those shady bastards know what they're doin and how it effects our recruiting. Hope we have a better day on Wednesday.

Willie Will in Nashville

Well in that case bring in Corn Elder

Terrance Sullivan

Happy Birthday Willie Will. RB's are a dime a dozen.

The Dude

Ha! You know I have to say it like it is WW.

Reggie

Uncle Luke is sending out some racially charged tweets essentially accusing Shalala of not wanting to recruit "Miami kis". Essentially calling her a racist.

It looks to me like some of the locals are exacting a little racial reventge for Shannons firing.

Not surprising and totally predictable. Simply waiting for the moment. Soon to be followed up by calls for Goldens firing.

Wait for it.

Reggie

Remember, with Shannon now with ARK I think the locals with the egging of Luke would love nothing more than to see Shannon vidicated as being "able to recruit" with kids going his way and Golden not so effective.

No doubt it's happening.

Willie Will in Nashville

Tsully,

Thanks bruh

Willie Will in Nashville

I'll have to agree wit you tonight. You wuz on fire!!

Yea Shannon recruited a ton of talent (said no one ever) We have more impact kids from Goldens first two years than we did under Shannon period. Luke, just like everyone else in the world, has his own "agenda"

usagainsttheworld

home team,

let's not get fixated on randy and luke. they will both always be a a part of the hurricane family-- but right now we should only be concerned and focused on the "nuclear family" and those who will be joining us this week.

stay positive family. for right now it is "usagainsttheworld"-- and the world will soon be sorry!

Jack

I am excited about this class!

Coach go get the 3 and 4 stars who bleed orange and green,

ie Perryman, M Lewis, E Johnson and Bush!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 stars need not apply, unless you are a DUKE! lol. Shannons 5 stars not so GOOD!!

Good luck to Alex Collins

CANES B BALL LEGIT TOP 10, UNREAL!!!!!!!!!!

LB

Also, please remember that we are a little full at tailback. Duke, Clements, Dallas, and Dillard are all back there. Furthermore, he'd have to compete with Sony Michel in 2014.

Collins was a notable loss, but not a killer.

* This team needs a tangible threat at tight end (check, see Dobard/Sandland).
* This team needs defensive help, and lots of it (see AQM/Burns/Carter).
* This team needed a QB (Olsen).

UM needs at least one of the Bostwick/Keef combo to commit (or another defensive tackle or similar upside). Thomas is also extremely important.

It's not over yet, folks. Perspective. However, if UM whiffs on them all... then it's time to start asking questions.

UMike

Amazing how many people blast an 18yo kid for his decision just because he didn't choose their school lol..So if he came to Miami he would be all world, but since he is going to Arkansas he will surely transfer? lol

Da U N Houston

With Alex Collins announcing Monday night that he's committing to Arkansas, UM badly needs Staten Island-based running back Augustus Edwards to choose the Hurricanes over FSU.
A few Canes reacted on Twitter to Collins choosing the Razorbacks over UM, UF and Wisconsin:
"Wow, man, really thought he was coming here - it could of been something special with him and Duke [Johnson]," Anthony Chickillo tweeted.
"That sucks - oh well," Deon Bush said. "No worries: We got Duke."
Then there was this amusing reaction from running back Dallas Crawford, who has a chance to play more than he did if Collins signed here: "So in other news, LeBron went 13 for 14 tonight."

Read more here: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/sports-buzz/2013/02/um-recruiting-update-less-than-48-hours-from-signing-day-heat.html#storylink=cpy

That's the kind of mentality fans need to have!

Posted by: LB | February 05, 2013 at 07:03 AM

To what end? Golden gets fired and Shannon is restored as HC? When has that ever happened at a major program? And how long will the vendetta last for? 1 year? 5 years? Forever?

UMike

It does really suck when you have Crawford, Clements, and Dillard...and your own teammates are Tweeting about how good Collins could be playing with Duke. Im sure thats a great chemistry builder lol

Old Skool

You can't get wrapped up in the logic or lack thereof in a 17 year old. Some do their homework, some don't.

Here's Michael McAdoo of the Ravens telling the NYTimes that he never bothered to check whether North Carolina had the major he wanted before committing

"He told his recruiters he wanted to major in criminal justice.

Once he got on campus, however, he was quickly informed by his academic counselors that North Carolina didn’t have a criminal justice major. According to McAdoo, his counselor picked his major, African-American studies, because it wouldn’t interfere with football practice."

For all we know, beyond football, Alex Collins wants to be a hog farmer. The business connections he will make in Little Rock will be invaluable. He will derive far greater economic benefit there than he would ever acquire at the U.

And don't forget Walmart is based in Bentonville.

Face it. By committing to Arkansas, Collins will be set for life.

UMike

Collins has the opportunity to get a degree from a major University. has the opportunity to play in a run heavy offense and perhaps get a shot at the NFL. I for one will be rooting for the kid, its not every day kids from rough South Florida ares get those type of opportunities.

CoCane

Good luck to Collins but he ain't a cane. Fukk'em. Next...

UMike

My thoughts exactly.

And has anyone seen Fayettville, AR? Talk about the armpit of America. As much as I talk up Oxford, MS and Ole Miss, Fayetteville is the exact opposite.

UpNorthCane

Im with Cocane on this one!!! no malice towards the kid but he aint a cane so Fukk em

Sinistercane

IMHO

Not knowing the offensive philosophy with the new O coordinator lead Collins to Clinton country

raizecane

Collins picking Arkansas is exactly why I don't get worked up over recruiting. Sitting on pins and needles waiting for a kid to make his choice is something I elect not to do.

I said it a while back, I won't sweat it until they all sign and even then you have to wait 2 - 3 years to see how you faired.

Personally, I don't blame the kid. if my school was about to face sanctions, I would have no problem looking elswhere.

Ohio_Cane

No surprise, but Jalen Ramsey flips from USC to FSWho

raizecane

Sinister - Bill King confirmed that Collins picked ARK over us due to impending sanctions. Had nothing to do with the O-Cord

Dumb if you ask me.

At max (though unlikely) one more bowl ban. Additionally lost of a few scollies a year. Once you are enrolled, NCAA will NOT kick you out, so how is it going to affect any of the players who are already on board. I even believe that the NCAA will allow the U to honor LOI on NSD even with a kid not started school yet. That would be punishing kids personally, randomly.

CoCane

Collins said out of his own mouth. He wanted to be the featured back. He ain't want to compete or split carries. He wanted handed to him. He'd rather go to a team that most likely will get pounded in the SEC west. They're rebuilding at Arkansas. So he don't care about winning & upholding a south florida legacy. Joining a family that's on the rise with 20 returning starters. He said on his visit, he wanted to find out if he could see himself at UM. Based on his choice, he didn't see Duke as a brother or family. Just a roadblock to his fame. He just doesn't have the "U" mentallity. He's right where he's supposed to be. Away from our campus. That mindset is not needed or wanted in our "U" fam. PERIOD. Therefore. Fukk'em. Next...

Uncle Luke is so stupid, did he not follow last year's recruiting?

kenyon19ypr

Good thing Collins didn't pick Miami. AFTER THE NCAA SLAMS YOU WITH THE DEATH PENALTY THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT OF THE HURRICANE PROGRAM EXCEPT FOR IT BEING LEFT IN SHAMBLES. SHAMBLES, I SAY!

I can't begin to tell you guys how many times I saw that yesterday. Can all the Miami haters jump off the death penalty bandwagon? I mean, clearly, not gonna happen.

Then again, I think that's what it said. Half of the people that typed it couldn't spell.

I'M GONNA GIVE YOU A SPELLING LESSON, Y'ALL.

mi@mic@ne

All this new hype stuff ..anouncing on tv ... getting your 3 mins of fame is all fleeting. What matters is your home town and since Miami is where the best football is played I ...its not suprising that we get players from all over the country. This is what the U has built as a dynasty and we need to teach the new players coming up that these other little country towns dont give a hoot about Miami players. Weve got to get through this fog. Winning will solve everything.

UMike

I had to unfollow Luke a couple months ago..just couldn't take it. First, he is suppose to be a Miami fan, but has become their biggest hater. Second, he is a Golden hater, all while praising Shannon and third he turns everything into a racial issue. You mix that in with how stupid he sounds (my 4yo niece write better) its hard to listen to.

What is scary is that he is on the coaching staff of a major pipeline school. Thankfully it hasnt effected us this year with Burns, but you never know about down the road.

UMike

I said it before...if it were up to Luke, Miami would sign every kid in Dade county, no matter what. We need quality OL..who cares sign 4 Dade County RB's....but we need some TE help...who cares sign 8 Dade County WR's...he is so dumb

UMike

Reuben Foster is so dumb..kid gets an Auburn tattoo then commits to Alabama lol..IDK about these kids...or parents

86Cane

The recruiting game isn't cheap, though at the University of Alabama spending on recruiting expenses was down in 2011-12. Still, $930,997 spent on football again exceeded what Alabama paid to recruit all of its athletes only five years earlier ($857,670) in the final season before Nick Saban arrived. ... Football accounted for 52 percent of all of Alabama's recruiting expenses last year, down from 56 percent in 2010-11. ... Auburn spent $950,378 on football recruiting in 2010-11, accounting for 45 percent of the athletics department's recruiting expenses. Alabama and Auburn were No. 2 and 3, respectively, in football recruiting costs among public schools in 2010-11, behind Tennessee ($1.5 million), according to a 2012 article by ESPN.com.

kenyon19ypr

UMike, I agree. I can't follow him. To add to everything you said, it's not like we're getting any beneficial information out of him.

UMike

kenyon...that is true..its 99.9% hating on Miami..definitely no beneficial information lol

mi@mic@ne

Shannon was talking loyalty when he was here like the old Canes. Now since he is in another program that loyalty doesnt matter? You know all this racial stuff doesnt make you any better. If you want a black coach to succeed in Miami what are you gonna call your home team if you want to be the first black coach to get that ring? Get in the place you love and become that coach.

Pre83

I don't get too bent on these HS kids thinking they are all that before even putting on the pads one time on the practice field.

I did see Collins play in the All- Star game & in all honesty, he wasn't that impressive to me. Certainly not a "must get" & compared to Duke, a third stringer. No disrespect, but he was waaay low on the priority list.

To me, if the U wants to be THE team for pruducing RB's, it needs to bring in Sol in some capacity. Ask any former Cane RB who played under him & each will tell you they were coached up on ALL aspects of the position.

Anyway, time will tell how AC does in Hogville, but Beilema isn't known for getting backs to the league. OL & DL, no doubt, but it's the RB's who are the benefactors.

BTW, don't forget Jimmy Johnson is a Hog alum - maybe AC should have consulted JJ before making his decision. Just sayin'.

Oh, & if any coach or player wants to play the race card on this one, you've got to be kidding. Let's see, Beilema from Snow White Wisconsin going to Hogville - Sure, that's where AC will feel right at home. Good luck, homeboy. - just don't be planning any trips to NYC in early Jan while wearing red/white!

86..we are going to lose out on Bostwick and Thomas..I think we snag Coley and idk about Bryant.

Woosh, woosh, we're whiffing on some recruits over here.

s/o to the stargazers hating on our recruiting class here is a clue Next Year U do the recruiting????Oh Yea U are not on staff i.e....ShutUp....We are fine our ballclub did mighty well last year and really experience is all that is needed this year as well as a better Defense everything else is a luxury minus WR could use some more of those but come on now we are not the Texas Assembly of God team U guys act like we fell off the face of the earth Sheeeesh and U wonder why the world says Miami Has the WORST fans....(which I tend to agree)at times bcuz why U guys are so FairWeather...That being Said


RCCF12%EVERYYEARNOMATTERWHOWERECRUIT.....get like me or shut up

UpNorthCane

You really have to have no life whatsoever to go on another teams blog and talk shitttt.... I just never understood it man, why do people do that. go volunteer at a shelter, go bake soemthing, idk and idc but don't waste your time and annoy others.....

Schweaty Balls

UMike...Its funny and sad at the same time. This whole thing tomorrow is really trending the wrong way. What is Golden going to say for an hour and a half on ESPN if he has no recruits to talk about?

UMike

Schweaty..if I looked correctly, we only have 1 recruit that will be announcing while Golden is on air. I am thinking only Grace will have committed by the time Golden is on, and that isnt even a sure thing with Louisville closing hard.

kenyon19ypr

Troll ain't tellin' no lie though haha I'm just gonna get this off my mind.

We're looking at Jermaine Grace, Michael Parker, maybe Gus Edwards, maybe Jay-nard Bostwick and possibly Denver Kirkland. Other than that, Thomas? Highly doubtful. Coley? Less doubtful, but John Franklin may have hinted about Coley being his roommate yesterday on the FSS show.

Statement/Question: Jordan Cunningham- Probably Vandy or Stanford, but Miami hat still on the table. I heard he is waiting for a commitable Canes offer? After missing on Collins, did Golden hook him up? Sounds to me like Cunningham is holding out for the Canes.

And in the words of a State of The U contributor: Bryant? Who the hell knows.

UMike

FWIW..I just read on another board that Kirland doesn't think he has a legit offer and has not received any paperwork.

UMike

Jermaine Grace-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 2PM ESPN
Denver Kirkland-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 9:20AM, ESPN
Matthew Thomas-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 9:15AM, ESPN
Jaynard Bostwick-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 8AM
Keith Bryant-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 1:30PM, ESPNU
Rashard Robinson-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 9AM
Stacy Coley-- Wednesday, Feb 6th, 11:05AM, ESPNU

UMike

So Kirkland, Thomas, Bostwick, and Robinson will all announce before Golden goes on air..I do not think we get any of those guys. Coley to account while Golden is on air.

Schweaty Balls

UMike...We will know about Thomas, Coley and Kirkland and Grace before and when Golden goes on the air.

And anyone can say what they want about Alabama, but those guys get who they want. They are the gold standard for recruiting. I mean 3 out of the last 4, there is a reason.

UMike

Schweaty..yea..hard to beat our Bama

Schweaty Balls

And the fact that we have not heard much from Ohio today speaks volumes where this is going IMO.

I am preparing for the worst, and hoping for the best.

UMike

Of all the remaining targets (that we know of), I only think we get Edwards and Grace.

Ohio_Cane

So let me get this straight... We miss on Collins and now we're striking out completely with all recruits?

Uhhh, ok.

So, no need for me to be on here at 6 am tomorrow?

Been on all morning. Reading the lunacy and doom and gloom all because we missed on a RB...

I forget, do we have a decent RB for next year?

UMike

I truely hope I'm wrong..but...

Kirkland - FSU
This whole situation has been crazy. I thought that since he went through all this trouble just to make sure he had an offer meant he really wanted to go to Miami, but I am still not sure Miami wants him.

Thomas - FSU
According to BTW coaches he has been a FSU lean and didn't even want to speak to coaches. Add in the whole Kirland/Ice/Luke crap, he is gone.

Bostick - Florida.
They came in late and the power shifted.

Grace - Miami
Even with a late push from Louisville, his bond with Lewis and Howard win out.

Edwards - Miami
Lets be honest, this kid is lucky to have an offer lol..with Collins out and us having the last visit, I say he picks Miami.

Coley - Miami
I hear he tried to commit early in the process but UM didn't take it for whatever reason, but Miami coaches cam eon strong late. Add in the addition of Coley to the staff and it brings Coley to Miami

Brooks - Baylor

Ohio- Just to be clear, the miss on Collins has nothing to do with my predictions.

Hey, anyone have any info on Dee Liner?(Great name by the way!) I thought we were out with him? It says its down to Bama and us, which by what I have been saying about Alabama tells us where he is going, but hey anything is possible. But whats the story here? Is there any sliver of hope?

How ironic would that be, we cannot lock down our own guys down the street but we can lock up a top guy from AL.

"Remember, with Shannon now with ARK I think the locals with the egging of Luke would love nothing more than to see Shannon vidicated as being "able to recruit" with kids going his way and Golden not so effective."

Wasn't my post, sorry. I paralleled some of the sentiment, however.
