Think the lack of offers is explained well here. Think we are taking a flyer on a super talented kid with grade issues,

If he doesn't qualify it's fine. If he does we have a potential steal:

Interesting:

@SBNRecruiting: Had him in my top-10 Fla WRs earlier today. Expect his recruitment to really heat up after this commit to Miami. https://t.co/rGOStPiL34

CaneRock

We have/had enough flyers on this team...Jones,Langham, & Carter.

And why is it that these "jump ballers" either never make it in (Griffin)...or don't stick (Gosier?).

And all I hear about this kid is He can jump...well, when's the last time you've seen a team jump ball their way down field?

IMO, a WR is only a WR up till the point He catches the ball, after that, He's a RB...I don't see that with this kid.

But I guess I'll have to trust Beard's eyes & ears on this one, after all, it's "The Muck", we haven't gotten a kid out of there in awhile.

CaneRock

His Safety HLs do look intriguing though, wouldn't be surprised if they're recruiting Him as an athlete.

Say it ain't so Jake:

Former Hurricanes kicker Jake Wieclaw wanted on felony sex assault charges

A former UM kicker is wanted on felony charges of alleged sex crimes reportedly involving a teenage girl.

Illinois police last Thursday filed a warrant for the arrest of Jake Wieclaw, 25, who played for the Hurricanes from 2011-12.

According to Will County (Ill.) court records, Wieclaw is charged with criminal sexual assault of a victim between the ages of 13 and 17, and aggravated sexual abuse by a person more than five years older than a victim. His bond is set for $100,000.

The New Lenox (Ill.) Patch reported Wieclaw was working for the Lincoln-Way School District at the time of the alleged incidents, which Patch reported took place on Jan. 27-28, 2014. He reportedly resigned from his positions as a paraprofessional and volunteer football coach within a week of the alleged incident.

Wieclaw played at Lincoln-Way High, where he set Illinois state records for most field goals in a season (19, as a junior in 2006) and career (48).

Wieclaw spent two years as UM’s starting kicker and made 30 of 39 field goals, with a long of 49 yards. In 2011, he hit a 36-yarder as time expired to give Miami a 6-3 victory at USF.

Winston's quote:

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Who cares if he cheats on his girlfriend. That's his personal business.

What does concern me is this quote above, about people making something out of nothing "as always". So alleged rape, stealing, vandalism and doing thousand dollars of damage to property, and all his other alleged crimes, are something out of "nothing".

Where there's smoke...

This guy is an unapologetic sociopath.

Good luck, Succaneers

Five Burning Questions: Miami Hurricanes Breakdown

4) Is Golden's Elite-level 2016 recruiting class enough to save his job from another sub-par season?

The simple and most effective answer to that would be easily "no". The expectations for a Hurricanes head coach are high and mighty, and Golden's only boasting a W-L record that's six games over .500. That's just not going to cut it, and it's surprising he's lasted this long, but the demand for top talent and coaching hasn't been there in recent years.

With a solid class of hopeful recruits expected to come in 2016, the job only looks more appealing to free agent head coaches, in the (likely) event that Golden doesn't last.

5) Where is Miami expected to finish in the ACC?

With a .500 record in conference play since his arrival (16-16) Golden must find effective ways to win inside the conference. Statistically speaking, Miami is one of the most underwhelming programs when comparing out-of-conference play and conference play.

Their production seems to drop immensely, which is much of the reason for their lack of success in recent years. Realistically, Miami is looking at a down year. It's likely they could win six games, but it's more likely that this is a five-win team with a lot of holes to fill in an unfortunately short amount of time. However, could this be the light at the end of the tunnel in what's been a somewhat grueling Al Golden era? We wait.

This team is deeper than its been in years.

We lost a lot but we still have a roster loaded with guys who can make plays, especially at the offensive skill positions and for the first time, the defensive line.

IF we solve our second half offense, we will shock a ton of people.

86, lol. Lurk, that case could be made. LeBron can beat you in a lot of ways, Jordan will beat you over and over again however he feels like embarrassing you. I think the comparison is wrong anyways. LeBron is like Magic in Malone's body. He dominates by force a lot. Michael was an acrobat and always had that WOW! INCREDIBLE! Moment in every game.

Posted by: Go Canes | June 03, 2015 at 09:12 PM

Agreed. For the first time in a LONG time, the Canes have stability and depth over the entire roster. Think back to the last few years:

2008: Mostly freshmen starting, as the big 2008 signing class saw immediate playing time.
2009: Sophomores and freshmen make up the bulk of the starters
2010: Juniors and sophomores are the majority of starters, with a freshmen class whose impact is blunted.
2011: Seniors and juniors make are the starters. Sophomore impact is reduced due to all of the failures to qualify and transfers of the '10 class, while freshmen impact is limited due to the small size of the class.
2012: Freshmen represent an outsized presence, as what would have been a fairly strong senior class leaves instead for the NFL. Juniors and sophomore depth is muted due to factors mentioned in 2011. Which is why a JUCO ladden K-State manhandles us.
2013: Sophomores and freshmen make up the bulk of talent.
2014: Juniors, sophomores, and freshmen make up the bulk of talent, with a small cadre of highly talented seniors on top (Dorsett, Perryman, Walford).
2015: Four solid recruiting classes with low transfer and early departure rates yield relatively evenly distributed talent across the board.

So much for butch coming back to the U


Bring back Chud!!!

Lur-ker

I honestly don't know what the impact is going to be on Butcht, but it makes me laugh - so many wanted to fire Golden and then immediately hire Boich just a few months ago.

I honestly wonder how we would feel now had that wish come true? We'd be sweating bullets, not even knowing if our coach would even be here, i.e. Butch, and all the distractions for the upcoming season and all the effects to recruiting. It would've been another cloud, as much as people laugh at that, and yes it would have an impact. Yeah that would've been really good.

By definition we are all kind of crazy, think of the word fan, it comes from fanatic.

The lesson is, that's why the inmate don't run the asylum.

Hiring Butch was a really bad idea, not just now, but a few months ago, because this could have easily been foreseen, and WAS foreseen by many who were against his hiring.

He may be fully exonerated at some point in the future, who knows maybe he had nothing to do with it, but the fact remains it would've been a huge distraction for program that spent the previous 4 years with the biggest distractions of all.

The Dude

I don't see that Butch is implicated.

Go Canes

It doesn't matter if he was or wasn't.

CaneRock

From a CBS sports article:

"Notably absent from the allegations is the name of any football or men's basketball personnel. Roy Williams, John Bunting, Butch Davis and interim football coach Everett Withers were all interviewed in the enforcement committee's investigation, but none were named in the allegations."

The Dude

Dispite all that Lurker, I'd still be more confident with Butch moving forward than with AG. But it looks like AG is making some changes (finally) this year and we'll see if Miami can reap the benefits in the W/L column. The truth is, both sides could be right in the whole argument.

The Dude

It doesn't matter if he was or wasn't.

Posted by: Go Canes | June 04, 2015 at 03:07 PM

Of course it matters.

Lur-ker

We are in a very unique position, and we just can't take that kind of risk with Butch. Period.

I already said, he may very well be exonerated. But can we be 100% sure of that now? No. And his name will be associated with the scandal. That's just how the media works, that's just how people work. Again it would've been a very bad idea a few months ago when it seemed like everybody wanted it, just like it would be a bad idea now. There could still be more possible information, or links, that could come out, and even possibly more allegations, that MIGHT involve the coaches. Maybe the odds are very low, but we can't take that kind of risk. Again, inmates should not run the asylum.
