Just happened to sign in and see things empty. A trip to Vegas? Wow. Do I need a passport?!

Nice non football article, Soup.

Side note. The Bucks actually traded for Michael Beasley?! Talk about a guy who should run out of a tunnel through a cloud of smoke...

GT was unimpressive. Clemson looks solid, but isn't the team of last year. Louisville will be tough for them

Boom. Nice Job Lady Canes!

Yes Sir 58 Straight!

Sarasota 'cane

The only time I can hit #1 is when I'm on Twitter when the new blog drops! Oops, I just gave away the secret! Anyway I stopped for dinner on the way home from work and had "that night"! I still don't know how or why it happened but I ended up at the Clermont Lounge in Atlanta! It's the most bizarre, fun place I've been to since I've been in Atlanta. It's where old strippers are put out to pasture!! I can't describe it but it's an Atlanta institution for some reason! Anyway I'm gonna pay for it tomorrow! I'm too old for this shyt!!

Go 'canes!!

That the Hurricanes, Seminoles and Gators all are bunched between 13th and 19th in the national polls this week testifies to their current talent. Their pipelines to the NFL tell you the players they send to Sunday aren’t bad, either.

Florida State (42 players), Florida (38) and Miami (35) all are among national leaders in most NFL players, based on this week’s active rosters.

Elsewhere in the state, UCF has 16 current pros, South Florida nine, FAU six, FIU three and Bethune-Cookman two — 151 in all.

FIU’s trio are Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, whose 16.1 average is best in the NFL (minimum 150 catches); Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien; and Chargers linebacker Tourek Williams.

Here are the UM guys on rosters, by position. Canes listed are starters unless noted, based on current depth charts:

▪ RB: Frank Gore IND, Lamar Miller HOU. Reserves: Duke Johnson CLE (who we’ll see here Sunday). Gore leads all active runners with 12,143 career yards.

▪ WR: Travis Benjamin SD, Allen Hurns JAC. Reserves: Phillip Dorsett IND, Andre Johnson TEN. Johnson, winding down excellent career, has 1,057 career catches.

▪ TE: Jimmy Graham SEA, Greg Olsen CAR. Reserves: Erik Swoope IND, Clive Walford OAK. Graham, Olsen both have made Pro Bowl.

▪ OT: Erick Flowers NYG. Reserves: Eric Winston CIN. Suspended: Seantrel Henderson BUF. OG: Orlando Franklin SD. Reserves: Jon Feliciano OAK. C: Brandon Linder JAC.

▪ DE: Allen Bailey KC, Calais Campbell ARI, Olivier Vernon NYG. DT: Vince Wilfork HOU. Reserves: Olsen Pierre ARI. Campbell, Wilfork have made Pro Bowl.

▪ OLB: Reserves: Anthony Chickillo PIT. IR: Ray-Ray Armstrong SF. ILB: Denzel Perryman SD. Reserves: Thurston Armbrister DET, Sean Spence TEN.

▪ CB: Sam Shields GB. Reserves: Artie Burns PIT, LaDarius Gunter GB, Tracy Howard CLE. S: Reserves: Deon Bush CHI.

▪ ST: Matt Bosher ATL punter. Devin Hester BAL returner. Pat O’Donnell CHI punter. Hester is NFL career leader with 14 punt-return TDs.

A six-pack of Hurricanes football notes:

• UM --- which has 20 oral commitments, including two good quarterbacks and three four-star defensive backs in a 2017 recruiting class rated sixth nationally by Rivals.com --- has about five spots left.

So who is UM targeting?

Remember these names: two elite receivers (Deerfield Beach High/Alabama oral commitment Jerry Jeudy and Louisiana’s DeVonta Smith) plus Georgia-based receiver Jeremiah Holloman; four-star Carol City linebacker De’Andre Wilder; Palm Beach Gardens safety Amari Carter (UM and Notre Dame are strongly in the mix); Fort Lauderdale American Heritage guard Tedarrell Slaton and two defensive ends – Dillard’s Jordan Wright and Miami Central’s Owen Carney.

Wright tells me UM has “a good chance” to land him and one reason is that defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski “knows the right technique to get me [to the NFL]. It’s big that he me” developed four first-rounders at Missouri.

This would be an elite class if UM lands three or four of those.

“Slaton would be the biggest get [of the uncommitted local kids],” recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein said.

Slaton told me in August that he had UM about seventh in his top 10.

• A key oral commitment in this UM class, Central offensive tackle Navaughn Donaldson, told me in August there was more than 70 percent chance he would stick with UM. This week, he told CaneSport he's planning visits to FSU, UF and USC.

"I'm pretty solid," Donaldson told CaneSport. “I see improvement in Miami's program at every position - offensive line, defense, weight room, coaching, all of that. Miami coaches say how happy they are to have me there, that I'm at home, how I fit into their offense.”

• Another key UM oral commitment, Columbus cornerback Christopher Henderson, told InsideTheGators that he's still solid to Miami but visited UF recently and plans to attend UF-LSU instead of UM-FSU on Oct. 8.

Of the Gators, he said: “They just feel comfortable to me and we've got a great bond. They make me feel like family when I am here."

Henderson is also taking visits to Michigan, Tennessee and Alabama. So UM will need to sweat this out.

• Mark Richt, on Mark Walton’s terrific start: "He's very tough. He's a great route runner. He's a great pass protector. I think he runs inside, tackles well outside. He's got good speed. Obviously he can break tackles.

Canes brothers! Good Fri morning to all!
Watched some of GT game last night. ...unless a major improvement from them....or slip up from Us occurs. ...I like our chances next Saturday.
If our front 7 plays as they have been. ..we should have success disrupting the "triple lindy ". ...the offense should also have a big day.

Looking forward to it, can't make the game itself. ...
God bless you and Go Canes!

Richt also said that cornerback Adrian Colbert, who underwent minor knee surgery earlier this month and missed both the Florida Atlantic and Appalachian State games, is expected back against the Yellow Jackets

UMike

Ive said this a few times... I live in SEC country here in TN. I am only 15 mins from the GA border, so plenty of GA fans here locally. Not a single fan I know was happy to see him go and ALL had great things to say about him. One guy even said he will be a Miami and GA fan now.

Mark from Atlanta

I actually called dumbass Finebaum show last year - and posed the question


"What if you swapped coaching staffs from one of your SEC teams and put them in place in MIAMI? "
They didn't entertain because "this is an SEC show "....

Maybe i should play the lottery. .
Haha

God bless you and Go Canes!

BigWindyCane1

CMR has the Canes rolling. I think some people around the country will look at how the Canes perform next week relative to how Clemson performed last night, and they make some judgments about how good this Canes team actually is at this point in the season. A win will keep them in the top 15, but a double-digit blowout win might thrust the Canes into the top 10 conversation.

This Canes team is very good. They are tough, athletic and explosive, and they have a good QB and coaching. Because of the coaching, the Canes players are actually getting better individually each game, and CMR hasn't opened up his playbook yet. Moreover, I don't think the Canes have really started to click on offense yet, and the defense is young so it should only get better with each game.

I think the Canes are actually better (or have the potential to be better) than Clemson, and this Canes team seems to be surprising everyone, except CMR and his staff.

thirstybuzzardcane

Very valid points, Windy!

Terrance Sullivan

To add to what UMike is saying I live in the Heart of SEC Country. Montgomery, Al which is 90 minutes south of the SEC Headquarters in Downtown Birmingham, and there are thousands of UGA Fans who have adopted Miami as their 2nd team due to Mark Richt. I was at Champs Sports here in Montgomery and their were several UGA Fans buying Miami Hurricanes Adidas T-Shirts, Caps, Polos, Jerseys, and some have said that they have bought tickets to be at the GT Game and at Games this Season some have already been to the Rock(Hard Rock Stadium) which they rave about saying how nice it is. We just need to go into Bobby Dodd and Beat GT Next Saturday at High Noon preferbly Convincingly!

UMike

TSully..when my GF went to the mall to get gear the guy said as soon as we made the hire he sold out.

Wow: AP Source: Chris Bosh has failed his physical, is not cleared for training camp with Miami Heat.

UMike

Secretly the Heat wanna clear that money off the books IMO

Terrance Sullivan

UMike Yes Sir!

TheeMackJones

I'm NOT the least bit worried about Georgia Tech and it's Rambling Wreck offense! Because believe or not. Miami will win comfortably and whatnot. The only question I have about the game, is the number of points Miami scores and allows; and how much the spread will be in Miami's DOUBLE-DIGIT victory. huh In other words, it would be nice to see # 12 get some playing time with about six or seven minutes left in the game.

Lur-ker

With all the cap talk, people forget there's a serious medical issue here. Throwing a clot can have a drastic consequences, including death

Lur-ker

And there is no way that Bosh will not be on some form of blood thinner for the rest of his natural life.

AfriCane

I'm not sold on Lamar Jackson after all. Yes he's fast. But he's no secret anymore. Let's see when defenses really key on him. He's not a good passer. Take his run out and that's 70% of the offense. As for their defense, any defense looks like the Great Wall of China if your offense is putting up 60 before half time. Defenses can play free and fast in that case.

Lur-ker

You may be right, Afri.

I hope he bombs when we play him in the ACCCG in Orlando, which I will attend for sure

I don't get it.
UM held a big announcement today about the IPF. Nice! Cool!
But Blake James said that UM still needs to raise another $10 million. And previously, he said that construction would not begin until ALL the funding was in place.
So, it seems that the big announcement may have been a bit premature.

Perhaps the$10 million is for the hall of Miami's NFL players and their TDs. Both are numbers constantly growing. Miami has to future proof, you know.

Am I Missing Something. If Any Recruit Doesn't Want to Be a Hurricane, We Don't Want You. Go Up North and Freeze, or Go to FSU OR UF, and Wish You Would've Came.

All jawja is doing is reverting back to their mean, which is a conference championship every ten or twenty years. Richt gave them a taste of bigger winning and they thought they were somebody else. They're not. This is who UGA is before Richt got there.

Without riding one of the greatest running backs ever to play in college, their history sans Richt says they're on the level of South Carolina.

Can't argue with that. Without Herschel they don't even have one NC in the program. Richt had two years were he really should have been playing for a NC there. 2002 where if it wasn't for the luckeyes winning about 4 or 5 games that year they shouldn't have by some miracle plays that went there way we would have been playing UGA that year for the title. And 2012 when they had Alabama beat in that sec title game but blew it at the end. Had they one that game they would have played the worst Notre dame team to ever play for a title and just like Bama did, UGA would have romped them.

I agree about running a high tempo offense against FSU. Seems like FSU gets easily confused out there.

Two things:
First, the 12%ers bus is rolling Strong🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Second, Jim Harbaugh eats his boogers, and I would think that will hurt recruiting.

BigWindyCane1

If FSU can't stop the run, It's going to be a long day in the Hard Rock when they come to town. CMR will give them a big dose of MW1 and JY2

IraqiCane is right though. They get confused with movement and misdirection, so we have to keep them guessing with our run, cant run it right at them I think. Lastly, to beat them Kaaya has to prove he can step on their necks. To beat them we have to be able to throw on play action.
