Yes I did. Thanks 86!

And you're welcome, was your idea!

Thanks Sarasota.

I felt the same way about Shula in 1995. I think Jimmy had the desire the first two years, but lost interest after the 1997 season. It's a very demanding job.

D.j. Fluker of Alabama claims his Twitter account was hacked after he tweeted about takin money at Alabama. Yeah rite!!!

LB

I think that both circumstances (Fluker) are distinct possiblities. At least it will get folks asking questions about the $EC. That's better than the continual god worship without repercussions.

LB - great story. However, Team Jack had a 69 yarder :-)

UMike's #1 stalker

Great post from Canesinsight..

In 3 years of playing big boy football in Dade County, Yearby has carried the ball over 500 times for 3800+ yards and 50 TDs. Yearby is the only underclassmen in Dade County history to rush for over 2000 yards in a season. This kid is durable and productive.

There are other RBs in S FL that get more attention and hype, but they do not have the durability and production that Yearby has had the last three years. He can be a workhorse back, he can split carries, and he can work out of the wild****. No matter what he does, he always produces.

There are no shady stories about Yearby. No fat siblings looking to tag along, no kin offering his services to the highest bidder, no assistant HS corches running their mouths to internet trolls. All I read and hear about Yearby is his production, durability, and vision.

I SMH at myself for overlooking this kid before this cycle started. Yearby is consistently productive, durable, and he wants to be a Miami Hurricane. Let's show this kid some love and stop worrying about kids that dont want to put on for their city.

Some people are so sad

Also from Canesinsight & Miami Herald..

Sean Allen... From enemy #1 to hero...

### UM appreciates that former UM assistant equipment manager Sean Allen, who was manipulated and mistreated by the NCAA during the UM investigation, has done all he could to help UM’s case in recent weeks. It speaks well of Allen that he has gone out of his way to assist.

Allen, who filed a Florida bar complaint against Nevin Shapiro’s attorney several weeks ago, has given UM some key evidence – including then-NCAA investigator Ameen Najjar’s letter on behalf of Shapiro to Shapiro's sentencing judge, and e-mail exchanges that showed Najjar’s successor (Stephanie Hannah) was doing what Najjar did -- collaborating with Shapiro’s attorney to try to use depositions to obtain more information to incriminate UM, even though the NCAA now acknowledges it had no business doing that.

“Allen felt obligated to inform the university when he came across documentation that he believed should have been included in the Cadwalader Report,” UM said in its motion to dismiss the case. “Allen stated that while the enforcement staff consistently acted in what he believed to be an underhanded and manipulative manner, the university acted above aboard.”

His family members have been saying they'd be surprised if he doesn't pick UGA.

So, if he's anything like Alex Collins, that means he'll pick Miami. LOL

No need to worry about Sony, he's already barking! Next RB candidate.

"Heavily leaning towards NBA"

Decision looming.

LB

It's difficult to resist the pull of the $EC... in this case, perhaps impossible. But please remember it is an unproven recruit. Defense is much more important.

UMike

Sony to UGA..I still think this will hurt..not from a depht stand point because I think it may actually help with Cook, but from a "we cant keep top players home" stand point. We cannot continue to lose out on top local recruits to the $EC..especially ones who have visited campus a 100 times and has been a lifelong Cane fan who Miami has recruited since 8th grade..you simply cant lose those battles. The $EC now knows, if they didnt already, they can come to South Florida and pick the top player at will.

CaneRock

Posted by: UMike | April 23, 2013 at 03:00 PM

We're not losing them to the $EC, they're just leaving for the Pro$ early.

UMike

CaneRock..while I understand that point..we still got to do something lol...This kid and his family are life long Canes fans. His family was him to be close, and he wants them to be able to see him play. He has visit Miami probably 3 times more than he has visited UGA and Miami has been recruiting him since 8th grade and some how we may STILL not get him lol..Between the money and gifts the $EC can afford (and get away with) and the media hype of the SEC, it may be impossible to get back to the top.

calGary Cane

How about this? One of you guys set up a Ponzi scheme, get arrested and thrown into prison... Then you can call the NCAA and rat on UGA (Sony). They'll believe you!

UMike

UMike

Man some people are just so sad lol..I NEVER post at the Herald...I truly with you pussies would just man up and say who you are. Everyone wants to be an internet tough guy knowing dam well they would say none of this shyt to anyones face. What a sad life people must have that they come to and read a blog they dont even like lol

UMike

CaneRock..that is for dam sure lol

UMike

I'm sick and tired of hearing about UM players who are STUPID enough to get caught...!! That's right...all student athletes at all colleges do things, but UM'S ATHLETES AREN'T TOO BRIGHT, are they?

ENOUGH!

Posted by: UMike | 04/20/2013 at 07:58 AM

FOR THE RECORD...I DID NOT POST THIS..IM SURE OHIO CAN CONFIRM

CaneRock

Via CI...doesn't say He's going to UGA, but interesting nonetheless:

The first day of spring practice at the University of Massachusetts football team has come and gone, and three players who started games last season for Charley Molnar's squad have been removed from the team's roster.

As first reported Monday night by multiple outlets, wide receiver Marken Michel and offensive linemen Jamie Casselberry and Michael Boland have all left the football team, Molnar confirmed after Tuesday's opening practice.

Michel's departure is shrouded in some mystery. The junior receiver's brother, Sony, is a five-star running back recruit out of Plantation, Fla. Rumors are circulating that there has been impermissible contact between Marken and potential suitors for Sony, to try to bring the duo in as a package. Sony holds offers from nearly all the major programs in the southeast such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and South Carolina, according to Rivals.

A phone call to Sony Michel was not immediately returned, and Molnar declined to comment on the matter.

Michel started just six games in 2012 due to injury, making 28 catches for 229 yards.

Casselberry and Boland both had issues with head injuries during last season, and have decided not to continue playing football, according to Molnar. Both are still enrolled at UMass.

"By their own decision, due to health concerns, both decided playing football was not in their best interest," Molnar said.

The losses of Boland and Casselberry leave the Minutemen with just three offensive linemen that started a game last season in Anthony Dima, Al Leneus and Matt Sparks.

"College Football Playoff"...

Clever.

Damn Canerock quoting Erskine Russell. There's a blast from the past. He was Georgia's Kehoe. There for many, many years. Used to head butt players before the game, leaving himself with a bloody bald head.

Posted by: UMike | April 23, 2013 at 03:00 PM

There U go again! Now I am seriously starting to think that U simply don't get it or never will.

1. U can't lose something that was never yours to begin with.

2. We are not losing the recruiting wars we are losing the bidding wars.

3. GET OVER IT ALREADY!

We are not doing any "package deals" and we ain't paying so if we don't get a recruit because of that then it is: "Next man up!"

Get it? Got it? Good!

86Cane

UMike...U said we (The U or Golden) "should do something" in terms of "losing" recruits to the $EC. What would U suggest that he "do"?

herbieibis

The Herb wants to chime in on losing local talent to the SEC. This has been an on going thing for sometime. One, we've had a coaching carousel here for the last several years and that leads to little bit of instability. Playing in this conference hasn't helped and not having a home stadium really is a bummer. Playing mediocre, has been the biggest problem. When you lose to the Virginia's & Marylands of the world, you got some problems. Not exactly football powerhouses on a year to year basis. There are plenty of athletes in the state of Florida, where 4'5's and 4'4's are common place in the 40 yd. dash but whats's not common are depth of big time offensive & defensive linemen & linebackers. It hurts when you have one of those rarities in your back yd. Ah, la Matt Thomas and he goes to FSU & Collins goes to Arky. That fence we supposedly have 100 miles out has been breached way to much to the Herbs liking. We can't get them all but if there are 25 kids in that 100 mi. radius that are of some elite status, then at least half should be ours. Now there are a few more this year, we already have a couple in McDormet, Yearby & Darling a great start but there are more out there that won't be that easy Chad Thomas, Sony Michel, Clark, Lane and there are some others. FSU seems to have Booker T. on lock down and that doesn't help. We get a player here and there from Aquanis & Central and those 3 aforementioned schools regularly send several kids to D-1 schools. The answer, winning takes care of a lot of ills, something we've forgotten how to do on a regular basis, oh yeah, will win more than we lose, most of the time but nat'l prominance is what the Herb is talking about. 10 wins or more. That's eye candy, I'm sure these hat game high schoolers want to see. We start taking care of the back yard and then go nat'l to get the rest, just like the old days and we will be in business. Did any of this make sense. The Herb hope so. Get the QB's from out of state, get the linemen from the Midwest & up North and we get the speed positions from Flo., that's the ticket.

LB

It's hard to compete with the money of the $EC. Ask around.

Houston

Sorry but I'm with DUKE, if The U has been your dream school and you love the school, blah blah blah, not amoutn of $EC money will pull you away (See DUKE Johnson). If you love the school and always "dreamed" of coming well, come, if not, STFU and move on.

Remeber these are 18 yr old kids, calm down. We'll get who wants to be here and Beat who doesn't!

Montreal-Cane

From UMike

Sony to UGA..I still think this will hurt..
"we cant keep top players home"

We cannot continue to lose out on top local recruits

you simply cant lose those battles

The $EC knows ...they can come to South Florida and pick the top player at will.

IT MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET BACK TO THE TOP

Posted by: UMike | April 23, 2013 at 03:00 PM

I trust Coach Golden in all he does for our beloved Canes. He said many times that he will be at the U LONG TERM...Since day one against adversity and the unexpected he has done great. From year to year you can see the program getting better. He knows the defense was terrible the last two years and believe me you will see a big change in 2013. Expect a season of at least 9 or 10 wins and a top 10 class in 2014 for recruiting.

kenyon19ypr

Here's my thoughts on this Sony situation.

All signs point to Georgia. All talk points to Georgia. Sony's comments keep Miami in the picture.

He's said "I've known for a long time" and he's never visited Georgia. Sounds like Miami. But all the people I talk to say Georgia.

I can hope Miami all I want, and even if Golden misses on Sony, can we stop pretending like Yearby is would play second-fiddle anyway? The kid is a 5-star for a reason.

Besides, the world is not ending if Sony picks UGA, nor is SoFla LOCKED if he commits.

And I think it was Insight who said his recruitment apparently won't be over until NSD.

That's what I have for you all, TIFWIW.
