There museum in Sarasota is one othe coolest places in Florida to visit. So much history there and the old family mansion on the water there looks like something out of the great gatsby. First class place and I recommend if your ever in Sarasota to visit it.

Go Canes!

My wife just went to see the circus with week with my step son. Said it had been completely reworked and was awesome.

Damn shame.

TonyCane

How well did it draw Go? Last time that I went in Austin the Irwin Center was around 60% full. Moderately more than what the Globetrotters or WWE have drawn here. I wonder what their break even point on attendance was.

Go Canes!

It was a school field trip so it was full of kids.

If i had to guess, I'd say it probably went under due to the carrying costs of the lawsuit they fought and lost for years trying to keep elephants in the show.

CGNC

Fran, best wishes to you and Jeanne

CGNC

Go, I believe the circus won their lawsuit but decided to remove the elephants from the show. Like the article said, ids are more fascinated with youtube celebrities these days.

TonyCane

Yes, I was reading about the lawsuits this morning. I wasn't aware that there had been so many suits filed against them. And other factors, such as NY refusing to allow them to perform if they had exotic animals.

I'm not a huge circus fan (my wife is - she likes clowns while I find them mildly disturbing), but I remember going to Ringling Brothers as a child at the Miami Convention Center. It was fun, and I took my children to see the show three times over the last 15 years in Austin. Its sad when an act with such a long and storied tradition can be done away with due to changing tastes and outside issues.

It kind of reaffirms my belief that college football could eventually fall. Today's concerns for elephant well being (and rightly so - very intelligent animals) could be tomorrow's concern for the hundreds of thousands of former college football players who sustained untreated concussions and file lawsuits against their schools, and students having to sustain a financial arms race for salaries and opulent facilities for players on their backs through escalating tuition costs and student fees.

Go Canes!

Good call Nick, I agree 100%.

This is what makes this blog GREAT!

Go Canes!

Defense wins championships?

2009-12: Alabama went 4-0 in season finales, gave up 10.5 ppg in those games. Last 4 yrs: 1-3, gave up 40.5 ppg.

Herbieibis

Can't stop Mobil qb's who can both, run and throw.

The Work 1-15
Miami hosted its first official visit weekend of the new year beginning Friday and continuing through Sunday morning.

The visitors were as expected: WR Evidence Njoku, WR Jordan Pouncey, DL D.J. Johnson, CB Trajan Bandy, CB Jhavonte Dean, and WR Mike Harley.

None of these were a surprise to Canes coaches, including Harley, who Miami had expected to go through with his visit plans even when he publicly said a few weeks ago that he was "shutting down" his recruitment.

CaneRock

WBK...UM @ Louisville on NOW on ESPN2.

CaneRock

Defense also loses Championships. Imagine if our D didn't show up against BC & VT in 01'.

CaneRock

And of course a great D is gonna give up points against an offensive juggernaut, so 2 or 3 stops in those games is crucial.

Defense always has to be on.

CaneRock

2015..."Alabama and Clemson entered the CFP Playoff as the top two defenses in the FBS, according to ESPN's defensive efficiency ratings. The Tide won the championship and finished the year as the third-most efficient defense in the last 10 seasons."

Terrance Sullivan

Great blogging today peeps. Come on Lady Canes beat the Lady Cards.

The Dude

Anyone know whats up with Holmes? Probably a silent to keep the HS kids in it?

I hope we can walk away with Thomas, Harley, Pouncey, Njoku (TE), and Holmes. Thomas is the jewel of the class and probably the toughest to get. That would be an elite haul and I think we have a damn good shoult at pulling it off.

The Dude

*shot*

WWIN

I think Holmes is out and Njoku will play WR not TE.

We're supposed to be loading up on WR's in 2018 so no need to take too many this year

Go Canes!

Ariz: CanesInSight has learned that Miami safeties coach Ephraim Banda met with Shawn Davis all of Friday afternoon at Southridge.

Davis is a UF commit who was supposed to enroll last week, but was not able to qualify early. He reached out to Banda this week. Sources tell CanesInSight that Davis' family and DB coach believes that UF has handled the situation poorly, opening the door for the Canes. Davis is likely to take an official to Miami with his family over the next two weeks.

One more important note -- I'm told that Banda has met with the Southridge principle about Davis' situation, as well as his aunt, who is a UM grad.

The Dude

Posted by: WWIN | January 15, 2017 at 02:45 PM

Njoku will out grow WR.

The Dude

Shawn Davis could be a solid pick up.

WWIN

Go Canes... if he takes that OV with his fam it will be O-V lol... which would be a HUGE GET!!!

TD...the coaches don't think he will

The Dude

Njok2 could be a Winslow or Graham type TE where he's a nightmare outside.

The Dude

TD...the coaches don't think he will

Posted by: WWIN | January 15, 2017 at 03:51 PM

I think theyre wrong. Kid should get to about 235. If I had to guess Id say hes pushing 220 now.

CaneRock

Pouncey I think is a lock.

Between Harley,Smith, & Thomas, I think 2 outta 3 will sign.


If Richt learned anything from Bowden, it's how to close, and I think He'll close strong this year.

CoCane

Sorry The Dude...

Evidence is skinny. Between 190-200 lbs at 6'6 (they usually give players a inch or 2). It's been stated several times he has a slimmer frame then David. David came in at 220 and reached 250 (maybe). Evidence looks to fill out at 220-225. Evidence is a Tommy Streeter type WR...

Herbieibis

He needs to close strong because most of what's left are 50/50 players. Njoku's bro will be a wr from what I've read. Supposedly has a different body type.

The Dude

Posted by: CoCane | January 15, 2017 at 04:22 PM

I disagree.

86Cane

You see what the Packers are doing with WR #88 Ty Montgomery at RB? That is EXACTLY what a smart coach would have done with Devin Hester. What a waste of talent.

86Cane

I disagree.

Posted by: The Dude | January 15, 2017 at 05:16 PM

The sun sets in the East?

CoCane

Ok...

What makes you think he will put on 50-60 pounds, other then hoping he does?

86Cane

I am rooting for Green Bay (never Dallas) but that Aaron Rodgers is a BAD man.

Im guessing he weighs almost 220 right now.

CoCane

He's in the 190's

BigWindyCane1

Great game between Cowboys and Packers.

VA Cane

Cant help it...How bout dem Cowboys!!

I love Prescott...great story great kid!!!!

1. I hate Jerry, his rubberface, his stadium and being nominated for NHL HOF!!! Why? he aint done shit for football!!!! dumbass could have won 3 more SBs had he kept JJ!!!

2. Elliott.....from OSU....and that feed me act BS!!!!! He is eating BS now!!!!!

most of there other guys are good people....Jerry and Zeke...not so much!!!! Went Down!!

Go Canes!

Aaron Rodgers.

Wow.

BigWindyCane1

So much for the NFL going to spread offense and running QBs. Matt Ryan, Aaron Rogers, and Tom Brady are in the AFC/NFC championship games. If the Steelers win, that's four traditional pro style QBs

BEERicane

Aaron Rodgers.

Wow.

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 15, 2017 at 08:14 PM

He's no Brad Kaaya.

CaneRock

GB played plenty of spread formations in that game. And while they're not running QBs, Rodgers & Rapistburglar aren't exactly lead-footed QBs...Rodgers made it happen just as much with His legs on that last throw.

Good one Go but show those FSU victory photos

Old Skool

Dang no mention of Devin Hester: 34 years old. 194 yards in kickoff returns and an 80 yard punt return called back for a holding call in one game. He's calling it quits

The Dude

Looking at Njok2 I dont believe he's less than 210. I dont think he will be a traditional TE. I think he will be out wide in the slot a bunch. We'll see.

RCCF

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.seccountry.com/florida/florida-gators-commit-shawn-davis-refutes-reports-considering-miami/amp

CoCane

Oh I see. You want him to be bigger then what he is. Ok...

The Dude

I think it just depends on you definition of TE in todays football.

CoCane

Uh huh

Lol

CaneRock

Evidence reminds me of Horace Copeland, kid's light as hell on His feet, and seems to have better hands than David.

CaneRock

But if Cager steps up, I think we RS Evidence.

BigWindyCane1

Cager and Dionte Mullins will have a chance. Berrios should start and might have his best year as a receiver

The Dude

And Im saying that kid is bigger than his listed weight. He lookd like Graham to me.

The Dude

Njok2 jumps sky high. Gonna be hard to leave him off the field in the redzone. Hes got the wingspan of a condor and hes already an okay blocker.

The Dude

Trust me Co, I am a 5 star expert.

The Dude

Speaking of the Njokus, they have an impressive family.

WWIN

^^^^^^^
Well you know more than the coaches do about him 😂😂😂

BigWindyCane1

Another great football playoff game

Go Canes!

Njoku looks much taller than his brother but rail thin to me. Don't see 220 on that frame right now.

Looks like Randy Moss more than Jimmy Graham's build.

The Dude

Posted by: WWIN | January 15, 2017 at 11:13 PM

Yup.

The Dude

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 16, 2017 at 12:03 AM

Not to me, he looks muck thicker than Moss to me. But again... we shall see.

thirstybuzzardcane

Lets ask the fatso on this blog about Evidence. Do you think he can gain the weight he needs to be TE?

The Dude

If you look at David back in high school he was skinnier too. I think Evidence can and will put pounds on that frame. 6'5" ish, 235 ish, monster.

The Dude

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | January 16, 2017 at 12:16 AM

Lol. Yeah Epi. Lets hear you pile on! With the reaction Im getting, you'd think I said Kaaya was a good QB on this blog! I simply think he'll out grow WR. Its wait and see I could be wrong, but I dont think I am.

The Dude

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 16, 2017 at 12:03 AM

I dont think hes 220, but I do think hes over 210.

The Dude

PS,

theres another Njoku brother thats a soph in HS.

^^^ Evidence.

CaneRock

I'd agree that He has the same build as Moss, but athletically, Moss was in another galaxy.

Go Canes!

Absolutely CR. It was just a build reference not a talent comparison.

The Dude

Harley posted on instagram to a Notre Dame committ, "See you next year 🙌."

The Dude

Oh wait, just saw that "Shhhhhhhh." Sorry O_C or 86, whoever runs canespace twitter.

CoCane

If you google image Evidence there are dozens of pics and he's skinny as f*ck in all of them. Almost N'kosi Perry skinny. If he's 190 it's because of height. In David's high school pics he's clearly thicker when compared to Evidence now. Which is why Evidence will be a WR in college.

STARS MATTER
College football recruiting rankings update as of Jan. 15, 2017, following the dead period for the 2017 recruiting class with two weeks left until National Signing Day.
Campusinsiders.com has UM ranked 15, one spot ahead of Clemson but 8 spots below number 7 FSU. The SEC has 9 teams in the top 25, including Alabama and Georgia as the top 2.

Go Canes!

Is the great weight debate finally over?

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

That was me.

Too many things go public when they should be kept quiet. Especially a flip of a player who has a coach on the other staff that's like family to him.

Like the Jeudy visit coming out too soon. Almost didn't get him on campus because it got reported.

Ohio_Cane

BUT, reporters aren't going to care, unless they also love UM. They just wanna break news and be first.

Ohio_Cane

Same thing goes with this Shawn Davis stuff and UF. They botched his paperwork to be an EE (similar to us with Powell a few years ago), and he contacted Miami to try to get in. But the news goes public and he has to deny it publicly, hurting our chances.

Ohio_Cane

Another EE cleared to begin classes!

Robert Burns set to enroll this week

Miami running back signee Robert Burns is set to begin classes at UM this week, a Gulliver source confirmed to CanesInSight.

It was reported elsewhere that Burns had not been cleared yet due to "paperwork", but a Gulliver coach told CanesInSight that it had to do with the fact that Burns was finishing up a virtual course that has now been completed.

86Cane

I dont think hes 220, but I do think hes over 210.

Posted by: The Dude | January 16, 2017 at 12:21 AM

He is a dozen donuts short of 210. Once he gets to UM under a proper nutrition program we will see.
