Good morning!

By the way Buckhead is kinda lame compared to when you were probably up here. From what I hear the club scene from a few years ago is gone now. It's all condo's and restaurants now. It's still fun, just not debaucherous!

Yeah, I am talking 10 years ago back in the glory dayz of Buckhead. Good times!

There IT is right there!

In case anyone missed 2014 WR Darrell Langham's info. Be impressed with Golden getting this kid early. Will be blowing up soon.

Size-Strength-Speed This player is flying way under the radar. Big, long and fast, he is one of the few big guys in this class who can run, is flexible and fluid. His speed is football fast, especially given his size.

Separation Skills Explodes off the ball and eats cushion in a hurry. For a young player he has some natural route-running instincts. Is conscious of spacing and steps and attacks alignment. Can close the gap and run by defenders.

Ball Skills Is a very natural pass catcher with big, strong hands. Attacks the football and makes plays in a crowd. Will win most contested matchups in the red zone. His size and speed combination makes him a threat down the sideline as well as after a catch. Shows very good body control and concentration on the over-the-shoulder ball. Adjusts well to poorly-thrown balls and has a wide catching radius.

Big Play Ability Gets up field immediately after that catch and if he catches a seam, he will win a lot of foot races. Has some shake and wiggle to avoid and extends plays. Is tough to tackle and is slippery.

Bottom Line Langham clearly has physical tools, but also has lapses catching the football consistently. Will make the spectacular grab look routine and drop the easy ones. Must be more consistent with focus. Might burst onto the scene during the summer and as a senior. Impressive playmaker.

Oh, and he's 6'5, 205. Ya.

Here's the report on Greg Dent's sexual assault arrest. Update coming soon (h/t @Warchant_DC) http://vmedia.rivals.com/uploads/1061/1410461.pdf

And, as a warning for anyone who hasn't read it yet, the report is graphic. So proceed with caution.

LB

I've been away for a while. My wife and I had an incident in which we were forced to evacuate our home temporarily.

We're okay now.

On a personal note: be sure to hug the people you care about today. You never know if it's your last day on earth. No joke. All seriousness.

I'm glad to see we possibly added yet another defensive player to our roster. Not that pre-NSD matters (save #TownCane), but the momentum is out there.

Also, it's a bit of a relief to know that more offers have been extended to defensive players than offensive ones.

UMike

LB..The staff is on the trail of a lot of defensive players...and top players at that..but many are waiting to commit..I think the wins/losses and how our D looks this year will go a LONG way in determining who we get..for offensive players its a no brainier lol

UMike

BTW...4-Star Safety Arrion Springs says Miami is no longer in his top 3..like I said before..was fun while it lasted lol

LB

"how our D looks this year will go a LONG way in determining who we get..for offensive players its a no brainier lol"

Even a 2012 Mark D'Onofrio defense shouldn't stop this team from winning at least 9 games and outright winning the coastal. Even the slightest improvement in pass rush is going to make a difference with the schedule of creampuffs we have.

Canesfan_1

Sexual assault is a horrible crime and no means no under any circumstance.

The facts of this case though are troubling. The girl (sounds like same age as Dent) fixes him dinner, goes out clubbing with him, gets in bed with him, she rebuffs his first attempt and STILL gets back in bed with him for him to make another attempt. Then all hell breaks loose.

Now again, no is no, and you have to stand down when a woman says no, and you never attack the victim, but dpsomebidy needs to teach this young lady about situational awareness and the urges of drunk young men. Assuming she's telling the truth.

Not an FSwho fan at all but that is sad and I am going to pray for him and his family but more so Please pray for the victims family....#GodBless

So proceed with caution.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | June 10, 2013 at 09:58 AM

Read it. Shocked.

And I agree with Canesfan_1 here. Something just does not sound right about this case. They were friends forever, he had met and knew her parents, she had loaned him her car, they had slept in the same bed together on previous occasions, etc.

I TOTALLY understand she said NO, and I know that NO means NO, but the situation she put herself in was NOT wise or smart. Still, if he did what was alleged, it was beyond WAY wrong, and if true, it is very criminal.

Still, it is just shocking that they could go from being long time "friends" and then he would do that to her in the manner described (if that is what happened) and that she would then report it and basically end his life.

If the facts are true then apparently he went from being young and drunk and hoping for "friends with benefits" to going to jail for 20 years for rape in the blink of an eye.

Talk about everything can change in a "New York Minute".

Umike I wouldn't be surprised if you see a trend with top 100 athletes not signing letters on signing day. There's no reason for a top recruit to sign unless he is 100% sure he wants to play for a school. The kid at FSU and the kid that left ND for UCLA are two prime examples.
They can wait till June and any team in the country is still going to make room for them before the season starts. SI.com ran a story the other day basically stating that the LOI's are so lopsided to the schools favor that a top kid should not sign them.

UMike

Sarasota..that may be true..but first the trend of getting on TV of NSD will have to pass lol

SOUP

Here is every team’s record in the BCS era, an imperfect way to judge the strength of a program (I don’t think anyone would argue that Virginia Tech is 12 spots better than North Carolina right now), but it’s a good historical look anyway.

Records since 1998
•1. Virginia Tech — 148-48
•2. Miami — 130-57
•3. Florida State — 127-56
•4. Louisville — 122-65
•5. Georgia Tech — 120-73
•6. Clemson — 115-74
•7. Boston College — 113-75
•8. Pittsburgh — 101-83
•9. N.C. State — 102-84
•10. Virginia — 97-88
•11. Wake Forest — 85-96
•12. Syracuse — 82-99
•13. North Carolina — 70-96
•14. Duke — 38-137

Using those records, the teams with the easiest fixed opponents would be North Carolina (N.C. State, Duke, Virginia), Boston College (Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Virginia) and Duke (Miami, North Carolina, Wake Forest). The hardest are Florida State (Clemson, Miami, N.C. State), Georgia Tech (Clemson, Miami, N.C. State) and Clemson (Florida State, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest).

Soup one of the things being tossed around that I like is playing the ACC CG on the home field of the school with the best record. It makes sense. ACC fans are not going to drive 10-12 hours to watch these teams play and then turn around and fly off to a bowl game 3 weeks later.
The reason the SEC CG works in Atlanta in my opinion is all of the schools are within 2-4 hours of Atlanta with the exception of the two new schools Tx A&M and Mizz.
If you play a game of that magnitude on campus while school is still in session then you are going to have a sellout every time.

Go 'canes!

SOUP

Sota...I agree with that home game idea for ACC title game but ATL would be good for ACC as well, no?

Sarasota 'cane

Works for me! Especially since they are about to build a "Jerry's World" caliber stadium here next year. I am also looking out the window right now at the new College Football Hall of Fame which will be open next year adjacent to Centennial Park right here in downtown.
They have really made this area into a sports mecca with all of the facilities, hotels, and restaurants. Now if they could just get rid of the crime...

Go 'canes!

Austell (Ga.) South Cobb High School DL Justin Jones watched good friend Juwon Young commit during a Miami visit the pair took over the weekend.

And while Jones didn't follow suit, he says UM is now in very good shape with him.

j.w.

No means no to me, no further questions needed. This sounds like a close, family type situation which explains why she would have trusted him. He dug his own grave on this, assuming the police report is true.

Tebow is back with the stupid coach (McDaniels) that drafted him in the first round.

I will guarantee you Tebow will be cut by the time the season starts......he's a waste of a roster spot.

Rumor out there that my Hawks, will get Chris Paul and Dwight Howard......I think that's all they need now to compete with the big boyz.

I saw Perryman this spring, and he was an absolute beast. After 2 years of U-Tough, Perryman looks like an NFL-U linebacker. Now its time for him to play like one - and boy can this defense use it.

Actually they sent a message to all of their season ticket holders that they were going to pursue Howard and Paul which is a violation of league rules. I heard they are going to be fined severely for the mistake. With that said it would be nice to have a competitive Bball team here in the ATL.
On the Tebow front I think he can play TE or FB and have a great career. If he insists on playing QB then he's done.

The father of Florida State incoming freshman linebacker Matthew Thomas said Monday night that his son wants to attend USC.

"He made a decision for himself. It's USC," Billy Thomas said.

According to Billy Thomas, Matthew Thomas' mother said on signing day that she would not sign paperwork for him to attend USC but would for the Seminoles.

Matthew Thomas could not be reached. Billy said Matthew's mother -- whom he said he is not together with -- is out of the country.

A separate source said Matthew Thomas has not clearly told Florida State that he will not attend there, and that family conflict and outside influences are affecting the situation.

Thomas, 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, was rated as ESPN's top linebacker prospect this year and the No. 6 player overall.

If Thomas, a Florida native, were to enroll at USC and not receive a release from Florida State or the National Letter of Intent group, he could follow in the path of signee Eddie Vanderdoes, who recently switched from Notre Dame to UCLA.

Vanderdoes is giving up one of his four total years of playing eligibility and also sitting out his freshman year as penalty for breaking his commitment.

"No disrespect to Florida State but Matthew is willing to take the punishment if there is one," Billy Thomas said. "He's hoping Jimbo will let him go."

Tito doin work...

2016 receiver Sam Bruce Jr. was one of the many speedy and talented players at the Al Golden football camp on Sunday. Bruce shined along with some other prospects in the multiple receiver drills they were performing.

“It was a good experience, I had a good time out there competing with exceptional players. I got to meet all the coaches and the staff at the university of Miami, got a good chance to have a good conversation with the coaches.”

Bruce Jr. spent a lot of his time at the camp not only showing off his tremendous skills but also speaking with coaches Brennan Carroll, Paul Williams and Al Golden.

“They’re just all about coming to Miami, I like that. They were up front with what they wanted. I also spent a lot of my time with the receivers coach, coach Carroll. I got to build a really good relationship with him.”

The University school product had a great performance at the camp, which led to him landing an offer from the hometown hurricanes.

“It’s a school that I liked growing up. I was just really pleased with the effort I gave which landed me the offer.”

While Bruce Jr. didn’t win Camp MVP for receiver’s, he did win another significant award.

“I got the fastest man award, there’s some really fast players out there. I really didn’t plan on winning that but it felt great that I came out on top.”

The 5’8 160 pound receiver rated his camp experience a “10 out of 10”

“it was definitely a ten; I like the atmosphere, I like how it’s close to home and hope to look more into the school.”

Prior to offering Bruce Jr. had an already high interest in the hurricanes, now that they have offered the interest is increasing rapidly.

“They’ve moved up a lot , it’s really teeter-tottering between FSU and Miami right now. Luckily, I have three years to make a decision.”

Another aspect that catches the speedy receivers attention is Miami’s sports medicine program.

“Yeah, they have a great sports medicine program. I’m going to look into that, as well as a great sports broadcasting program.”

Pete Ariz doin work..

2014 Booker T. Washington CB Nigel Patten is no stranger to the University of Miami, as the rising senior has been on campus multiple times and has been to many games as well. On Sunday, the talented prospect took in the Al Golden Football Camp and was given a tour by the head coach himself.

“The experience was nice. Coach Golden showed me around the whole campus and the new facilities so it was nice. I saw a few guys like Chris Lammons and Tyre Brady. I know Tyre likes Miami a lot and it looks like Chris likes them too. Coach Golden wants me to commit,” said Patten.

What his Patten’s impression of the new Schwartz Center?

“That was my first time seeing the new building. It caught my eye because it shows Miami is more than just a small campus and they’re getting things on the right track with the football team and the school.”

Patten admits the Miami coaches have been on him heavily over the past few months.

“The coaches talk to me everyday and I’m the number one corner on their board. That’s all Coach Barrow and Coach Williams talk about with me. It means a lot because I never expected it and didn’t see it happening for myself.”

The two-sport star (track) does not have a solid decision date set yet, but is planning on discussing things soon.

“I said the summer, but I really don’t know for sure. I’m going to meet with Coach Ice and my dad and then I’ll pretty much go from there.”

The Booker T. corner has a busy summer ahead.

“I’m trying to get up to Tennessee. I’ll be at UCF, UF, and FSU.”

Patten lists having heavy interest in 5 schools right now: Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas Tech, Miami, and FSU

haha...

Matt Elam has called out Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips. No, not the Elam who was the most active defensive player last season and was selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens.

Elam, a 4-star defensive tackle in the 2014 recruiting class (247Sports), has decided to share his feelings on the Gators coach via his Twitter account.

The first tweet should catch your attention:

Swear Im Done With Joker Phillips Haha Not To Be Rude Or Anything But I Cant Do It
— Matt Elam™ (@FballIsLife69) June 9, 2013

Considering Phillips is the one recruiting the young man, this isn't a terrific sign. If a player truly doesn't like the guy he is in contact with, the school might as well give up and move on to the next guy. However, Elam wasn't done with calling the first-year assistant coach out in front of his 3,000-plus Twitter followers.

Great Dude But I Just Feel Disrespected And I Still Like The School But Just Not Real High On Joker
— Matt Elam™ (@FballIsLife69) June 9, 2013

Disrespected? Did something happen that we should know about? If the nail wasn't in the coffin already, this is a clear sign Florida isn't too high on the defensive lineman's list at the moment. Sure, he made mention that he still likes the school, but players always end up picking the place where they feel most comfortable. Elam has made it perfectly clear that isn't the case with the Gators.
