Well... that is pretty much what was stated: until we have an elite QB we will continue to be average.

I’m saying that good Xs and Os coaches can succeed with a less than an elite QB, of which there only a handful.

I’m sure u agree w that.

I hate to say it, but if he cant see the field next year, I hope he graduates and transfers, it'd be better for everyone. We will need 2 damn good SDEs in Surge19 if Martin isnt looking like he'll contribute there because I think the signing of NJS & Miller just took away any shot he'd ever have of playing DT, barring a bunch of injuries. I dont know about you, but I think Miller plays next year so long as he knows he belongs and doesnt act in awe of The U.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ In his 4th cycle it should be said that signing a minimum of 1 WDE, 2 SDE, and 2 DT shouldnt come down to the wire again. Surge19 needs to hit its numbers, and we need to every year now. Thats championship recruiting.

He’s done good work w nfl talent. But the x o Job.. not so much

During his lone month on the trail, Patke flashed the potential which could make him the Hurricanes’ most important recruiter on defense — at least in the front seven. Defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski, an incredibly well-respected technician — whiffed on 4-star defensive tackle Dennis Briggs and 3-star defensive tackle Jamarcus Chatman, although he did sign 4-star defensive tackle Nesta Silvera. Diaz, who is also Miami’s linebackers coach, was basically a non-factor as a recruiter this year. He failed to even secure official visits from 4-star safety Jamien Sherwood, 4-star inside linebacker Rosendo Louis, and 4-star outside linebackers Xavier Peters and Amari Gainer. Diaz has only signed one blue-chip prospect in his career. Kuligowski has managed four.

Hopefully, the new coach Pakte will help the Canes connect with those new recruits and help bring them in. Recruits like young coaches, and once they are on campus, the experienced coaches like Kul and Diaz can develop them. Plus, it’s good to see CMR reward loyalty and hard work by promoting a longtime grad assistant.

Working on it now!

The eight 5 star players that Georgia signed was the most by any team since USC in 2004. The literally signed a quarter of all available five star talent.

As for 2019 recruiting:

Miami:
5 Stars: None
4 Stars: 1
3 Stars: 8
Unranked: 1

FSU
5 Stars: None
4 Stars: 3
3 Stars: 1

Florida
5 Stars: None
4 Stars: None
3 Stars: 2

Clemson:
5 Stars: None
4 Stars: 1
3 Stars: 1

Georgia:
5 Stars: 1
4 Stars: 5
3 Stars: 1

Herbieibis

We have about 10 LB’S on the roster and not one consensus 4 star or better. Got to up grade the overall talent there.
Martin did not play a down last year. If he plays tackle he will be a bit undersized at 280 to 285. That’s DE’s at Bama and tackled for us.
Needs for 2019:
3- DE’S
2- DT’S
3- LB’S
4- DB’S
Offense:
3- OL (2 being tackles)
1- TE
1- QB
2- RB’S
2- WR
Whatever else is gravy

Hope the baseball can hit their weight this year. Last year was pitiful.

S.T.A. has a kid that looks like a Jon Vilma type, Anthony Solomon, too bad he's not a 305 kid, its gonna be a battle for him. He should be right near the top of Patke's list even if he is light. If Shaq jumps pro, we'll need a guy we can plug in right away that weighs at least 225. My guess is a guy already on the roster that knows the defense. I wish a Willie Williams talent was coming out this year.

While recruits like younger coaches, they more often than not sign w then guys w a track record.... coaches who put guys in the league. Or at least that’s what it seems like.

Actually, as I’m typing this it’s occuring to me that banda and Hartley, 2 young dudes, are our best recruiters.

Or even further, who has made it with a QB who wasn't high quality AND playing his best ball of the year?

Separate question...and I think this is understated...with the recruiting done in the last two classes...is this not potentially the most talented and deep Corp of wide receivers that Miami has had since 2000?

If you look at it objectively, absolutely, but it needs to be apples to apples.

Thomas was better receiver as a freshman than Santana was, but not better than 2000 Santana, if that makes sense.

Same with Richards and Andre.

Can Pope be Reggie Wayne and the Jordan/Mallory duo be Shockey/Winslow.

Will be interesting to see going forward. Unquestinably the talent is there.

But he got kid's to visit!

BigWindyCane1

I don’t criticize three star recruits because Miami seems to have success with some.

For example, Njoku and Dorset were three star recruits, and both were first round draft picks.

Garvin and Pinkney were three star recruits on defense, and with hard work, they both are on a path to be future NFL prospects.

Norton and MIchael Jackson were three star prospects too, and they both are NFL prospects.

Jon Ford was a three star, and Coach Kul and DIAZ believe he has an NFL future.

Jordan Miller and Rousseau are three star recruits, but I cannot wait to see what they do when they arrive on campus.

The list goes on. When it comes to three-star prospects, the Canes have a track record of developing them into NFL prospects

I’m hearing Dude say mark helfrich

There’s a ton of examples of coaches doing more w less. Chris Peterson jumps out. Look what Kelly did. Beamer did more with less. Obviously there’s a ton of examples. Richt hasn’t done more w less. I think he’s a great HC, but his MO is to out talent the opponent not out scheme.

When was the last time Alabama had elite QB play? U can go down a list of spread O w jag QBs. Fast quick easy reads. They’re built to outscheme.

1mg of Epi

Nick Saban screwed us for PS2 10 years ago.

He took culpeper instead of breeze. As a result he couldn’t win w the dolphins and ran to Alabama. As a result bama became the goat dynasty. As a result front running ps2 decided to go to bama because he didn’t wanna build a winner, he wanted to inherit one.

Go Canes!!

What team, besides Bama who's had the best recruting class in the country for pretty much a decade, has won a title without ELITE quarterback play?

Tebow, Young, Winston, Watson, Newton and Leinart all put their teams over the top.

Richt not doing more with less is a joke. We won 10 games this year with a 50% completion QB and an offense that lost inarguably it's three best offensive players.

Now if you know more than the coaches and hiring team themselves by all means continue to shed your nuggets of info, if not, Learn to Read!! CANE in Peace

Miami is like an NBA team, they play to the level of the competition as oppose playing lights out Everytime!!

Excuses STINK - but lets be real here CANES have Never faired well in cold climates and snow Always a bad look for FL boys who haven't traveled much, lets not act like all these kids are privileged and travel immensely.

We Gotta play like the Hunted at all times and not like we are hunting or like we are better than.. We have to play Underdog Ball at all times.

Herbieibis

Sinister Rumph is fine. We have never had much luck with the 5 star guys anyway. The last 15 years, the ones we’ve gotten have played more like 3 stars.
FSU has always had more star power than but have done less with more.
In order to get Clemson we have to up grade both Lines and Get a QB to be an in game performer. They Are better than us at those 3 positions, talent and depth wise, although we are closing. I think we are ahead at the RB position and DB. At LB we are even but they have more star power. They have more star power at WR but we have more depth of talent. I think eventually we will have the edge at TE. A good QB can off set a few O-Line woes.
Got to get the star power up around the 45 range and still would be about 10 to 15 behind Bama, who right now are the standard barer.

RCCF

and Sinister before Go Canes tries to make me out the bad guy at some point you guys gotta understand that there are answers for all your queries if you just take the time to look for the info as opposed to just spewing negative info.

Again parents, players, etc see you guys doing this and you are not helping the cause at all. You single handedly help scare recruits off because nobody wants to play for a Fickle fan base who only seems to care when Wins happen and when they don't the stadium is empty.

Lets lose the Negative Nancy spirit and try to speak more positive about things especially when the reports say you are 100% wrong and you are just typing for finger exercise now.

Go Canes!!

If you think guys like Surtain, Jeudy, Ridley and Fitzpatrick went to Bama because they’re afraid of competition you’re not a bad guy, you’re insane.

Insanity Proven Not
Where did the kids from Dade, Broward, and PBC go?

Clemson: 0

These kids have played sandlot ball together for Years I will NEVER believe a Fan knows who a kid will compete against over what a kid shows... like it or Not the DB's we got help our recruiting class grade out to 97% Ranking by 24/7 Sports that's the Highest Rating Ever by the Canes and that's including the #1 Class from 08.

Let these kids live man. And let Rumph work he isn't the low man on the totem pole and he is no slouch coaching. Again Surtain and Campbell didn't become 5star by osmosis and Campbell didn't wear #8 just because it's his Fav nmbr. He wore it because of Rumph.

Go so how do you argue against those numbers??

They went to Bama to play against the best, plus play for ships and it doesn’t that they have been on top since the Sutains if the world were 8. Kids love them some flava of the month.
Jacking on Rumph because he got dumped at the alter for those kids is bogus. In the last 15 years, No matter who the coach, no matter who we had on stafff, how many 5 star Florida or So. Florida boys have whiffed on?
Surtain was a LONG shot at best and Campbell just went after the new Flava.
I will say this we don’t have a couple elite recruiters, YET! Have some young guys who could eventually be good. WINNING will help these guys out, trust the Herb!

Bama’s schedule isn’t watered down. If they played in the ACC, it would be the same as when FSU entered the ACC, it would be absolution! I mean for some years. Aside from FSU, Clemson and to some extent VA. Tech the ACC can’t touch the SEC. how would we fare if we had LSU, Auburn, TX A and M, Tenn, both Miss. schools. We have to many weak schools that are 2 up and down from year to year.

RCCF

Ivey was recruited from South Dade (Homestead, FL) class of 2018. He committed to Miami on 6/25/2016. He was recruited by EPHRAIM BANDA , MIKE RUMPH .

VIEW RECRUITING PROFILE

Yes That Mike Rumph.. I know you have Dudeness, you've been solid on this situation

RCCF

Miami’s class ranks No. 1 in the country.

“It’s awesome,” cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph said. “We’ve got some really good kids, some national kids that they’re starting to believe in the University of Miami and once that starts it’s a downhill affect where down the line it’s going to be hard for kids to come because we’re going to have so many really good kids in front of them.

“Coach (Mark) Richt talks about it all the time as far as just being a good recruiter and staying tenacious about staying on top of the kids and this staff has done a great job and has taught me a lot as far as doing those things well too.”

Rumph is in his second year at Miami after a three-year stint as head coach of American Heritage School winning two state titles and producing a number of Division I players.

As a recent high school coach, he has a perspective on the impact of a school gaining momentum in the recruiting world.

“These kids all know each other with all of the 7-on-7s going on so when half the kids on your 7-on-7 team are committed to UM and talking about the University of Miami, it’s easy for it to appeal to them,” Rumph said. “We have that advantage with South Florida because they come to practice and they come to our scrimmages to see what we’re doing. The proof is in the pudding.

“All we’ve got to continue as a team is putting good products out there and just staying on top of the kids with what they’re doing, keeping in touch with them, and when the season rolls around and we’re a playoff team and we’re excellent or what we should be doing as a team there’s going to be a lot of kids trying to get into the University of Miami.”

That alone tells what I am saying is 100% True....kids see who they can't beat out and if a kid is locked in to the U and Stud feels he can't beat that kid, he will go elsewhere, and don't think kids with 5Star are above the Alpha Dog - The Man Syndrome Attitude, They Aren't...

Look, u guys got to understand, when Richt got hired, he didn’t have his whole staff in place and And only had about 4 weeks to recruit and hold onto what they had in the class of 2016. Quit blaming Rumph for that recruiting cycle. We didn’t put enough emphasis on DB’s last year. It was all about the O-Line and LB’s, which if u want to beef, beef at Diaz for bringing in a bunch of 3 stars.
RCCF,
The ACC, other than FSU, Clemson and VA. Tech, has a bunch of mediocre teams. So what if they’ve had some luck in bowl games and yes those other teams like Pitt can rise up and beat a good team on a bad day. Look at the recruiting rankings. They can not sustain, year to year. They may have a 9-3 and follow that up with s 5-7 season. A bunch of 5-7 to 7-5 teams. Maybe one goes 8-4 and if they do go 8-4 they are Senior Laden like NC ST was.

Our recruiting boundaries need to be Flo. Georgia, SC over to Louisanna into the Eastern part of Texas. If some kid somewhere else wants to come here then so be it. No reason we can’t get what we need doing this. The DB’S, WR’S, RB’S and DE’S are within 150 miles. Now the lines we may have to expand to those territories I mentioned, as well as LB’S.

Not the LBs, Dade & Broward will give us 3 every year to start. We need to close down the best 2 every year, maybe go up to Tampa & Jacksonville for a 2nd or 3rd some years.

Go Canes!!

We are already starting to dominate recruiting in Orlando and Jacksonville. We also have the IMG pipeline going stronger than it's ever been.

Imo if we do it on the field this year we aren't going to have to worry about puttting together 25 All American caliber players every year going forward.

I totally agree. We need the OL step up and look like the 2nd best OL in the ACC. Weve got to put our QB in 3rd and manageable. On defense, we need coach Kool to live up to his reputation and Rumph needs to put together an interesting CB group. I wouldnt be surprised to see Blades, Frierson and Ivey all get serious reps.

The reality is we filled our class with studs, gambled on the AH kids at the end and whiffed.

Shrug.

Believe we signed 23 so we couldn’t do anything but that. There isn’t a single reach this year. Every one of them is heralded, we’re heavily recruited by every big time program and was a beast in high school.

I’ll take it.

People forget that ps2 was not at any point over the last year viewed as a possibility for UM. Until about 10 days before NSD and we all somehow thought we had a chance.

I’m not sure why we al of a sudden decided he had to be a cane, but up until that point we were all thrilled w the class.

80% of the 5 star guys in Flo. Have shunned us over the years and we have still managed to win 5 ships, robbed of one, and stepped over for a chance to play two more. Good coaching, attitude and scheme have allowed us to overcome.

It's amazing the amount of Sunshine being pump to defend the a DB coach who can't recruit he's former elite DB's that he coached since little league and his current CB's who can't turn their fuqin head around to play the ball.

We have more Jags on the staff than the team

Mike Rumph's 2019 goal should be to have two playable CBs signed on early signing day again. If he can land 1 more on NSD, he will have successfully established depth in his group. The next step for him will be elite closing, and moving closer towards being a full 2ndary coach. I can foresee Diaz taking Banda with him if he ever takes another job.

And you don't deserve a shred of satisfaction that will com with any future success.

All you are is a hypercritical, filterless dope who wants to bench every player, fire every coach and burn every redshirt from game to game and even play to play.

Good God dude, have some freaking pride instead of coming on here day after day after day after day after day after day to cry and whine about some kid who isn't here instead the ones busting their asses every day to make us champions.

I swear any play Frierson, Blades or anyone other freshman makes this season should come with a double middle finger salute to you. Cause all you do is pine for some Heritage kid who never has and never will give a shit about the Canes.

There’s a ton of examples of coaches doing more w less. Chris Peterson jumps out. Look what Kelly did. Beamer did more with less. Obviously there’s a ton of examples.

Richt hasn’t done more w less. I think he’s a great HC, but his MO is to out talent the opponent not out scheme.

But wait...The choir ain't signing?

When was the last time Alabama had elite QB play? U can go down a list of spread O w jag QBs. Fast quick easy reads. They’re built to outscheme.

NEVER

His Royal Dudeness

Storm18 was an excellent class on offense, hopefully all of them stick it out. Richt went out of state and grabbed himself one of the best QBs in country, poached right out of the heart of the SEC. At RB he said give me the best RB out of Dade, to go with the best RB in FL, and give me the number one FB in America. Lol, Richt told Dugs to take that donk and find me some studs, so Dugs said he'll get the number 1 WR in SoFL, the top WR out of IMG and then he went right back into SEC territory and snatched up an animal. TE? Richt will take the top guy in the country and the top guy in FL while hes at it. For the OL Richt thought, we just arent strong enough, so he added three 4* OL that are as strong as you will find coming out of HS.

Defense was pretty good when it was all said and done, especially at DB where we added two 4* CBs in Frierson and Ivey. Those guys are legit prospects, the remind me so much of Burns & Rolle. Some people may not like Bethel right now, but when that kid gets his first crack at KR, people will understand, he might be a d*mn fine CB prospect as a redshirt freshman. I think Blades is eventually a FS and Hall is probably our best safety prospect since Bush walked on campus. Im not yet sold on Rousseau as a WDE, but if he develops, hes going to be outstanding. He could end up an OLB imo also. Joyner Im hoping puts on good weight and ends up inside. He could be a real run stuffer if he bulks up near 240. DT has two absolute animals. Miller is so physically gifted for a man his size, I can see him getting snaps next year. Nesta is Nesta. Hes got a Cane attitude. If he develops into a leader, he could be a guy thats sets a tone that lasts several years after hes gone.

I dont see a single prospect and say that guy doesnt belong.

Next year's WR class has 5 freshmen in it. I think the correct move is to play 3, redshirt 2, so that for Surge19, we only need 1 to play. My question though, is who will be the 2 freshmen to redshirt?

1. *** (*FR) D. Njoku
2. **** (FR) M. Pope
3. **** (FR) B. Hightower
4. **** (FR) M. Ezzard
5. *** (FR) D. Wiggins

If playing 3 is the plan, the choice would be very tough.

I think Pope & Ezzard can be like Harrison & Wayne back in the day. Imagine redshirting Hightower though, I dont think that would happen.

Shorter DBs are taught not to read the eyes and turn the head but instead read the hands and swat the ball out upon the catch.

1mg...Alabama is more akin to the 2000 Ravens, with incredible skill position players sprinkled in. As long as the quarterback is not incompetent, they’re fine. And it’s not that theY only sign 3 star QBs. Their more recent QBs were highly ranked.

Go Canes!!

Epi knows that Tony.

He also knows despite the greatest run of recruiting in history they are a play or two from being 0-3 in their last three title games mostly because of QB play.

This is true but the problem is that we should have been in the picture when we have his former head coach on staff that will be his position coach!

Neither one of them believed in Rumph is what it came down to.

TonyCane

Go...given the talent they have I’ve felt that Alabama has actually underpe formed this decade. What do you think?

Posted by: WWIN | February 11, 2018 at 10:41 AM

True, and yet we ended up with Ivey and Frierson, two elite CB prospects. I wonder if having Rumph as a HS HC was actually bad for us in the end.
