Batter up & love the Mark Light Milk Shakes

F'the Turds!
GO CANES!!!

WWIN

With all the 3☆ recruits we're getting... how are we not going to be in battles with Butch, Strong, and Kiffin??? 😂😂😂

HAPPY SOUP

Because we are the mighty Miami Hurricanes, winners of, um, uh, nothing in the last 14 years...that's why!

Yeah I almost forgot about that part!

The Dude

^^^ Exactly. We gonna roll out our helmets at recruits.

Go Canes!

So if I counter WW and Soup's Lol-ing last night about competing with Butch by posting we have a Top 12 class, currently higher than FSU and the Turds, is it of those moments some of you think I'm being all safe place and aroma therapy?

And if I mention we're only going higher if we land 2-3 more big fish we appear to be favorites for, is that when I'm being a total blind homer cause I think this class has the chance to be fantastic?

Just want to nail down when I'm being too "Pro Canes".

UMike

Saw this on CIS... Strong already going after our recruits...

Strong Trying To Flip Gibson

Somebody just showed me this.

He never took any official visits because of his team's state championship run - he was originally slated to visit UM this past weekend.

Now in the dead period, Gibson said Monday night that he's still not 100 percent set on his UM decision. Certainly it helped that Ephraim Banda took an in-home with him last night, though.

"He was here 45 minutes, it went well," Gibson said. "We have a good connection."

The reason Gibson, as his mother puts it, is "confused"? USF is making a big push and has told him he is basically guaranteed early playing time.

"I'm locked in with the U, but different options could come along," Gibson said.

Asked the percent chance he winds up a Cane, he said, "a good 80 to 85 percent."

UMike

Derrick Smith is a Plan B kid IMO, but glad to see a couple other guys shut down their recruitment especially Donaldson

TonyCane

Strong is an impressive recruiter per his time at TX. But every other FL school also have his TX record to negatively recruit against.

UMike

Tony...that is true, that will hurt him. But he was very successful at taking South Florida kids before, even flipping Miami commits. Having Butch, Kiffin and Strong in South Florida will have an effect, to what degree we will have to see. Im just glad Strong wasnt hired at Miami, he was a very overrated coach IMO.

30CINCO

Hurricane Legend & The GREATEST Return man in NFL history seems to be on his way out the league. Baltimore has released him.

Some of the most exciting times I can remember at the OB were when he was about to return a punt or kick. "HESTER! HESTER".

I can see him being considered for the HOF in the future.

UMike

30... agree. The Louisville game comes to mind

Go Canes!

The kickoff return to start the comeback against the Turds in the OB may be the most exciting play I've ever seen live.

Calhoun's tipped 2 point conversion, Dorsey to Shockey and the last wide right may have been more dramatic but none of them were as electrifying.

Go Canes!

That opening kickoff in front of 80,000 people was absolutely amazing. Then you top it off with that come back.

Wow.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Qc5erbhNYao

Go Canes!

LSU becomes immediate title contenders next year in my opinion:

Matt Canada has accepted the LSU offensive coordinator job, a source told SI.

Ohio_Cane

Strong will not take one kid we ACTUALLY want.

UMike

Oh boy here we go lol

Canedolfan386

I always read and never really post. I just want to say something to Go Canes. I like your positivity man. I'm with you, I don't understand how we could be negitve fans. We have a whole new coaching staff, we look to be headed towards a top ten class, which our head coach has done for years in the greatest conference ever in the history of sports. Tongue in cheek. We have a coach that has won consistently. At a school that was not winning at the level before him. And he is one of our own. He also had changed the national overall outlook on the hurricanes. New practice facility. There are alot of positives. The Cane family is so ready to win. That we all think it can all be changed in a year or two. I think it will take 3 or 4 years for Mark to turn this thing all the way around. But it was nice seeing the D turn things around. And the oline finally playing better. Anyways I got your back man

Ohio_Cane

Oh boy here we go lol

--------------------------------------------

OH boy nothing... USF is our little sister when we're down. We're on the way back up. Don't care if Strong is a great recruiter (which he is). If we offer and are actually pursuing them hard, they're not choosing USF over us. Period.

UMike

Its already happened to us so IDK how you can be so sure. Not to mention NONE of us know who they are actually really pursuing and not. Some we do because of visits etc, but we dont know all. Not long ago it was "reported" we "cooled" on Smith, now he commits. If Strong can win some games and get ranked he absolutely can fight us for some recruits. I think its naive to think we're the might Hurricanes who wont lose recruits to a P5 school that has been in the top 5 more recently then us, has flipped our recruits, has beat us and now has a coach who routinely took Miami recruits.

I have confidence in CMR, and if we win we will get talent, but to think we will never, ever lose a kid we want to USF, especially if they win is narrow minded IMO

Posted by: UMike | December 14, 2016 at 10:17 AM

They're not P5

30CINCO

Re: Derrick Smith - he said Miami "cooled" on him because they weren't sure he would qualify. Once that status changed, they came back and he committed.

UMike

I stand corrected...but stand by the point of my post.

UMike

30... the point is still the same.

William Shakespeare

Posted by: Canedolfan386 | December 14, 2016 at 09:50 AM

This may be the single greatest paragraph ever written.

UMike

Let me add... I think IF it did happen it would be rare, especially if we win games and stay relevant. If Strong cant win games there and get back into the rankings consistently, then it may never happen.

---------------------------------------------

Narrow minded would be the guy who assumes because a mid-major team got a good recruiter as a HC, they'll threaten us AT ALL.

I'm actually leaving Golden's remnants behind and seeing that we're upgrading our facilities, including an IPF, our game day experience has improved mightily, we have a REAL coaching staff, including a HC that kids and parents LOVE, our product on the field is 10x better, specifically on defense, etc etc etc.

All that in addition to being THE U, which doesn't hold as much weight as it once did, but is still a brand that everyone knows and will want to play for as our product on the field improves.

UMike

Ohio, I agree with 98% of that post. Just think its crazy to assume its impossible for them to get a Miami recruit...when they have already done it. In a perfect world we will return to the top 10-15 consistently while Strong fails at USF and this becomes a mute point (which I hope). But this isnt a perfect world and all it takes is another 4-loss skid on national tv while USF has a top 25 season and then it becomes very possible.

The U is a brand, but not to the majority of high school players and with each passing year of us being irrelevant that brand shrinks more and more. I do agree that once the product on the field improves, this will change.

Ohio_Cane

Strong has already done it vs Richt? Impressive.


Otherwise, it doesn't matter. Taggart vs Golden? LOL ok, fine. USF stole recruits from Miami...

The Dude

This blog needs a game to watch.

Ohio_Cane

DEC 28th

UMike

USF & Miami, it has happened. Strong himself has also took our recruits and flipped commits. Not saying it will happen again, but given the right environment it CAN happen.

UMike

IDK if Im happy our bowl is early in the bowl season or if Id rather it be later lol

Terrance Sullivan

Looking forward to being back at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field in February for the Canespace FOUR Play.

30CINCO

First official member of the 2017 class is in: Robert Burns has signed his LOI.

https://twitter.com/PeterAriz/status/809069522208649216

Go Canes!

Very good signing one of the ELITE running backs of this class.

Had offers from every big time program in the country.

UMike

I'm not sold Burns is "ELITE", but he is a very good RB. A class with him and McFarland is a very solid RB class.

Ohio_Cane

Burns scares me, as I know a lot of fans are regarding his injury history. He hasn't played much the last couple years because of it. Hopefully a college nutrition/weight program can keep that bug away from now on.

He does have ELITE speed tho. Will be one of the fastest players on the team and he's around 5'9, 200 lbs

Ohio_Cane

He told Ariz he's playing in the UA Game, so will be fun to watch him and how he's healed up.

Go Canes!

Posted by: UMike | December 14, 2016 at 12:10 PM

This is the least surprising thing ever.

Go Canes!

68th ranked player nationally. Look at the offers he has. Didn't know Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and the rest offered just good.

http://www.espn.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/player/_/id/195619/robert-burns

The Dude

^^^ Burns isnt elite. He could be very, very good. A better *** RB than Gus Edwards.

The Dude

Is Burns an EE then? If so thats fantastic. As Ohio said, he's 5'9" - 5'10". If he can get to a cut 220 and define his cuts better, he can be a very, very good RB. He with McFarland is a very good haul at RB.

The Dude

Last thing I'll say about Burns... best *** RB that I've seen tape on and felt like he was a border line 4.

The Dude

In my book, elite is Fournette, Duke, Bush, Peterson, Henry. But for everyone of those ***** RBs there's another 5 star bust.

CGNC

Keoki - when will you be at any home games?

Posted by: The Dude | December 14, 2016 at 12:39 PM

I think Dalvin Cook is elite

The Dude

^^^ Dalvin was a 5 star too.

TruCane81

Take away the offensive miscues, and Richt has to get an A for year one.

We look like a better program in a short period of time.

We have had three offensive coordinators this year; good Richt, bad Richt, and average Richt.

I am not totally against him continuing to call plays but I don't like his tendency to shy away from concepts that put points on the board for us.

Hire a quality oc and it wouldn't matter if the little sister schools had god as head coach.

We are right there even with our flaws.

We will get ours just buy recognizing our own strengths and utilising them creatively.

It only matters what we do. Always has, always will.

TonyCane

One thing in our favor...those two U specials constantly running on ESPN. To a smal extent, they keep the greatness of the program in mind. Versus a Texas for instance, which has now been on a downslide since 2009.

Ohio_Cane

The only reason Burns isn't a 4* is because he's hardly played since his Soph year. Yes, he's an EE

TruCane81

Exactly Tony.

Espn hates us, but loves our ratings. So they help the program indirectly keeping the mystique alive.

All we have to do is win on natinal tv.

Do this and we will get the lions share of our desired prospects.

TruCane81

Hearing rumors Cook will come back Senior year.

Anyone got any ideas on this.

I personally can't see any reason for him to return for senior year.

Go Canes!

For Sinister's eyes only:

Go Canes!

Cook would be insane to come back.

Ohio_Cane

Kaaya coming back, Njoku gone.

Per Porter sources ^^

Ohio_Cane

No chance Dalvin stays

Ohio_Cane

This is what a recruiting coordinator does (Bama has about 15 of these types):

A major factor in his recruitment was Miami’s on-campus recruiting coordinator Jorge Baez, who has delivered on 4-4 Gulliver targets over the last year. Burns joins Joseph Jackson, Dionte Mullins, and Cedrick Wright in Coral Gables – just a few minute down the street from the Gulliver campus.

“He’s been huge (Baez). I can’t even put into words the type of impact he’s had on my life. I’ve got nothing but love for him – nothing but love,” Burns said.

Ohio_Cane

Richt is adding another just like Baez in the near future that could bring us some kids in THIS class (Kemore Gamble, Shawn Davis) and definitely will for next year.

From CIS:

I hope it true

MTO WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Alabama Football Reportedly UNDER INVES

December 14, 2016: MediaTakeOut.com just got an EXPLOSIVE rumor from an MTOer who claims to have first hand knowledge. We’re being told that The University of Alabama’s program may be about to be dealt a major blow from the NCAA.
We’re told that the program may be facing “DISASTROUS” penalties from “serious” infractions. The tipster wouldn’t elaborate further.

We’re told to expect an announcement “as early as today.”

We hope this person is wrong, cause if not, it could get UGLY. All you Alabama fans, it may be about to go down. . .

We’ll be updating this post with more information as we recieve it!!

Ohio_Cane

I'll buy it when it's not a website called MediaTakeOut...

^^^^^Maybe that's why Kiffin left. Why would he take less money at FAU?

^^^ And that they take the SEC down with them.

CaneRock

Kaaya allegedly coming back, plus getting Walton back for at least another year, =s huge. Now we just gotta find somebody to fill in Njoku's "Stretch 4" role...Herndon maybe?

And that Haskins kid, is He playing O or D?...kid looks like a stud.

No. you don't get an A if you fail to achieve your two most important goals. A B is being generous considering a full third of the season was flushed.

Ohio_Cane

Haskins will be TE. So athletic he ran our Scout team QB position last year. He's David Njoku, but younger and not as filled out.

I think you're right about this class... I love the recruits we have committed and believe we'll close strong... but this was not about that.

The point you're missing is this... YOU NEVER ADMIT TO SEEING ANYTHING OTHER THAN ORANGE AND GREEN! Not that it's necessarily a bad thing... it's just that you want admit it when EVERYBODY here knows this about you. I know your posts without even looking at the name lol.

Donaldson starts game 1 you think? Give me your opening game 5.

The Dude

Jennings, Dallas & Burns will contribute early too.

The Dude

Brad coming back is great news I think BUT we go into 2017 asking the same question I asked at the start of this year. Can Richt, Searles, Brad and the OL keep him upright?

WWIN

Posted by: The Dude | December 14, 2016 at 04:08 PM

You maybe right about that lol! I know 4 I can DEFINITELY spot 😂

WWIN

Can Richt, Searles, Brad and the OL keep him upright?

Posted by: The Dude | December 14, 2016 at 04:18 PM

They did these past 4 games and will be better next year so my answer is yes! Big Vaughn will start day 1 at PRACTICE 😂!

Another question you could ask instead is... Will Brad hold onto the ball forever???

Ohio_Cane

Donaldson starts game 1 you think? Give me your opening game 5.

Posted by: The Dude | December 14, 2016 at 04:10 PM
--------------------------------------------

No doubt Donaldson is Game 1 starter at LT or RT. Starting 5 is fluid, so not sure. I'd venture a guess of Vaught at LT and St. Louis at RT tho.

Ohio_Cane

Vaughn**

WWIN

^^^^^Maybe that's why Kiffin left. Why would he take less money at FAU?

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | December 14, 2016 at 03:36 PM

Probably cuz he doesn't like Satin!

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | December 14, 2016 at 04:26 PM

Brown would get the other spot opposite Big Vaughn IMO

The Dude

Laugh all you want about Alabama football, but Bananas Nailed to a Piece of Plywood is groundbreaking in the field of banana research.

CoCane

Don't sleep on the LSU transfer and Odogwu starting at LT & RT over a frosh that has yet to play a down of college football...

Dam... I was hoping Njoku would come back. He would be the 1st TE drafted in 2018...

CoCane

I think Herndon will break out replacing him...

Ohio_Cane

Brown would get the other spot opposite Big Vaughn IMO

Posted by: WWIN | December 14, 2016 at 04:28 PM
----------------------------------------

U know what? I keep forgetting about him. I'll wait to hear how he does vs our DL in practice before crowning him a starter. Like his potential tho

Ohio_Cane

Can't count on Sunny to be healthy for any length of time, so I don't predict him to be a starter.
