Love HS football....recognize alot of these names!!

Rohan Marley!! Sean Taylor!!

Go Canes!

This is a no brainer for FAU. They won't find a better candidate. Very much hope Scott gets it, he's a class act and a fine coach.

Feldman: Am told #Vols asst Larry Scott, the former #Miami interim HC, is a solid candidate for the #FAU coaching vacancy.

Former Cane Reggie Youngblood on Randy Shannon: "That man ruined careers, y'all just don’t know the half". Whoa

^Couldn't come up with a rhyme for orange? Weak. ; )

TonyCane

What I mean is, I want specifics. I hated that there was no retrospect on Shannon's tenure back in 2010. No postmortem of what went wrong.

If Youngblood says that Shannon ruined careers then he should cite specifics. Was it him? Shields? James? How did he ruin them?

The ACC’s coaches recognized something some of the conference’s media members did not: Corn Elder as a worthy first-team All-ACC pick.

Elder, who was left off the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association’s first team, made the cut of the coaches, whose voting was released Thursday. He is Miami’s only first-teamer.

Wide receiver Ahmmon Richards finished tied for third in overall rookie of the year and second in offensive rookie of the year. Linebacker Shaq Quarterman and defensive end Joe Jackson were two of three players who were tied for second in defensive rookie of the year.

Miami’s second-team selections: right guard Danny Isidora and punter Justin Vogel.

Third-team: Richards, Quarterman, wide receiver Stacy Coley, running back Mark Walton, defensive tackle Kendrick Norton — left off the media’s list entirely — and kicker Michael Badgley.

The Hurricanes had no coaches’ honorable mention selections.

Glad to see Pahokee state champs again...seems like forever since we got some talent from the muck

Go Canes!

Think Kaaya stays and Njoku goes. I can live with that.

I was just saying we need to decide who is going to apply for the FSHAA Director position. LOL

SOUP

Skool...I will call you later this afternoon.

UMike

Im surprised with the lack of love Elder is getting from the draft "experts". IMO played light years ahead of Burns who was a 1st rounder.

Go Canes!

Think ABs combo of length and speed made him a better NFL prospect.

SOOOOOO,ANYTHING WHERE TO PARK AT THE BOWL GAME YET?

Posted by: canezilla | December 08, 2016 at 03:42 PM

******************************

Canezilla, I am still looking into this. I need to get with Happy Soup and KY to see how they wish to proceed. Finding tickets to park is expensive. I know there are a lot of businesses that sell spots for cheaper then what you can get on-line and I am looking into that as well.

Ohio_Cane

Wait until his Pro day and combine, UMike. They're gonna like him a lot more.

raizecane

canezilla, one option is to tailgate on the rooftop of the Geico garage (next to Amway arena) and then take shuttle to the bowl game. The shuttle pick up will be at the corner where the parking garage is located.

Ohio_Cane

Tweed from CIS says Jerry Jeudy is on campus on an OV RIGHT NOW. Which means he basically snuck behind Saban's back to take it, because as of yesterday, he wasn't coming.

This is great and strange at the same time.

Ohio_Cane

Ariz on Jeudy being on campus:

The cat is out of the bag.

This is why we can't have nice things.

But yes

Wow. Jeudy on campus is huge news! For those that havent seen him, he's a 5* burner thats very similar to Richards. The kind of kid we should get every year.

Come on bro, that kind of attitude just isnt you. lol.

UMike

Dude...its been a while since Ive been able to be a "nancy" about recruiting, so figured what the hell! lol... I do not think we flip him though. I think we came on to late (no fault of the staff) and Bama is just to much. About to win another title...we will get ours, just dont think we flip Jeudy

Ohio_Cane

Jeudy is the #1 WR in the country.

UMike

We've been behind for a WHILE now...

When Alabama was closing the deal on Calvin Ridley and Shawn Burgess-Becker in the 2015 class, Crimson Tide coaches were laying the ground work on another receiver they felt could be special.

That was Jerry Jeudy, who was getting ready to play his sophomore season at Monarch High School in south Florida behind Ridley and Burgess-Becker. He earned an offer before then and, a year after transferring to Deerfield Beach to play for coach Jevon Glenn, he committed to Alabama.

http://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2016/07/alabama_commit_jerry_jeudy_a_o.html

UMike

^^^ Florida's Friday Night Lights made a big impression, as did Mark Richt's Miami Paradise Camp. But Jeudy had been to Alabama many times with Ridley and Burgess-Becker (who has since transferred).

"In the end, it was too much to overcome with the family atmosphere Alabama provided since the ninth grade," Glenn said. "Alabama was out in front from the beginning (offering after ninth grade). History was too much to overcome."

Ohio_Cane

On campus for OV = chance

Better than having no shot.

UMike

Ohio... I agree with you there. Probably more then the previous staff would of got. its just my opinion we are way to late.

Go Canes!

I remember that RB Scarborough tried to OV here late and was told by Bama they'd pull his offer if he came, so the kid ditched.

Jeudy being here has to be something more than just a mini vacation since he's probably gotten similar pressure from them.

Doubt they'd pull the offer of the #1 WR in the country, but you know they can't be happy he's here.

Go Canes!

Honestly if there was a time for a WR to de-commit, this is it.

Bama has had so many transfers they literally have no QBs behind Hurt, who can't really throw. If he gets injured next season there will likely be a true freshman starting for the Tide. which means run, run, run and run some more.

The Dude

UMike,

You know Jeudy's little sister died recently? I wonder if that may be why he's considering staying home. Can't help but feel bad for the family.

CaneRock


its just my opinion we are way to late.

Posted by: UMike | December 09, 2016 at 11:02 AM

Circumstances change things UMike.

Besides the passing of His little sister...you have Coley & possibly Njoku leaving...Bruce got kicked off...=s immediate playing time.

And a boring day in Miami is better than a great day in Tuscaloosa ehhhhhhhhh-nee day of the week...any day.

Weather...He can practice His craft year round.

Better QB to catch from if Kaaya comes back.

He'll flip...Bin Lyin' cries...phuck bumma.

Ohio_Cane

I believe family is 100% the reason we have a real chance to keep Jeudy home.

raizecane

Canezilla.....I have a parking spot for you....

Mark from Atlanta

If he leaves. ..njoku would look great in Fins gear on Sundays. ..

UMike

That tragedy could be more reason to leave... like I always say, I hope I am wrong. Just think we have a LONG uphill battle. We tend to get caught up on thee little stories and we run with it thinking hes gonna be a Cane but just wishful thinking.

CR, you make good points, but for some kids its better to be a God in Bama then just another kid in Miami. Its better to play in from of 100K every week no matter what, to play for titles every dam year etc lol

What is the deal with his sister and rest of family?

Ohio_Cane

Ariz:

I will add this nugget that carries a ton of significance.

It's very well known at this point that Calvin Ridley and Jeudy are close. But here's the thing...a person very very close to this situation told me that Ridley has not only "given Jerry his blessing" to go to Miami, but Ridley is apparently telling Jeudy Miami is a "better situation" for him considering what his family is going through. Could be Ridley not wanting less targets in his draft year, but it is important to note nonetheless.

That could go a long way here.

The Dude

Posted by: UMike | December 09, 2016 at 12:17 PM

There's no wishful thinking bias here. Jeudy has been a target for a long time. I'm not saying he'll definately be a Cane, just that there are some small signs that Miami is still working on this kid. This is very positive.

Ohio_Cane

For the #1 WR in the country, I don't care if he goes to USF, he'll be a god there.

Recruiting is #trendingup for Canes. Gonna be a game changing weekend with the OV's

That's really big Ohio.

If this happens I hope CMR's faith, perspective and genuine concern has a lot to do with his decision.

That's a very good thing all the way around, not just on the football field.

The thought of that soulless robot Satan faking how much he cares makes me want to puke.

Geo 305

They picked him around 7. He was having breakfast on campus this morning with a coach from what my boy told me.

Word is that he's staying till Sunday. Dead period strikes on Sunday at midnight.

Robert Burns should get a 4th star too I think. Kid reminds me of Mark Ingram. He's far from polished but is built like a beast and runs low.

Good recruiting signs buzzing all over twitter.

Let's hope that translates to some quality gets by this staff.

Don't follow it as closely as some but I think at this point we all know the 4-5 names we're hoping we get, starting with those two massive o-linemen and Jeudy.

Think the sta WR and the running back from up north are already in the bag.

Go Canes!

Btw why does that clown Donny boy all of a sudden appear out of nowhere this time of year and start passing off misinformation and made up crap as fact?

Tweed

Visit went great yesterday. He'll be on campus with the team & at practice today

The Dude

Klay Thomspon is unbelievable. Too bad the NBA just decides whatever they want.

BigWindyCane1

Great recruiting by CMR and his coaches. Jeudy and HARLEY would round out a great WR class if they can pull it off. Kaaya will have more weapons to throw to, and more big plays in the passing game will be possible.

Donaldson is the best OL to come out of Miami-Dade since Eric Flowers, so if the Canes can pick up one or both of the American Heritage OLs, the Canes will have their best OL class in years. CMR will have more OLs that will allow him to run his pro style offense and also help him run the football more consistently. Mark Walton should be very happy. Gus will get some carries And Homer and Gray (two faster RBs) might see some action too

The DBs they have committed are great, but if they pick up a couple more like Henderson, the Canes will have a great class there. More importantly, these recruits can play and most will contribute early and at a high level.

CMR is building the Canes into something great. The Canes will be deeper next season, and will have more experience at every position.

Go Canes!

Ariz: There have been a ton of questions on the deadlines for when guys will enroll, so I'll try to explain it best I can.

Miami begins classes on January 17th.

The final day to register for classes or add a course is January 25th. Meaning, a kid like Jeudy would not have to technically have his papers signed until the 25th, if Miami is his choice. On the other hand, Alabama begins class on the 11th and the last day to register is the 18th. So basically, Jeudy has until January 18th to decide.

I'm not saying that will be the case for him, but I'm just giving an example as to how the enrolling works.

Herbieibis

Class is good so far But we've been down this road to many times with the wishing and hoping. Unlike Goldie, hopefully richt can close the deal on some of these upper eshalon players that we need more than anything else. As The Herb has stated before we need the number of 3 stars we have compared to 4 stars, that needs to be flipped in order for us to really get rolling, this has to happen or at least be even.
We need more speed at wr. Trying to get some inside info on Juedy. We need some cb's that are ready to play and at least one o-lineman ready, other than that redshirt the rest.

The Dude

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 10, 2016 at 11:59 AM

Agreed Herb. Bandy is ready to play and if we can get Dean and Henderson, we'll be set. On WRs and speed, we need to get to a point where we have at least 4 Travis Benjamins. Burners. Add that to size recievers and Miami's traditionally fanstastic TEs, and we'll be set. We also need to stack 4s and 5s at RB every cycle.

CGNC

Sad about Jeudy's little sister. Ugh. It is the most horrific thing for a parent, to lose a child. Can't even imagine.

Absolutely. I've been saying this for years. If we want to have the teams that FSU has had this decade, the number of four star players HAS to outnumber the three star players.

Now if Richt can pull in the people that posts above are saying...we're 25% of the way there. Richt will need to do this though year after year, which he can and I expect him to do.
