I hope 2018 is better?

Go Canes!!

It’s already better.

The internet told me.

The only one we NEED to get is Silvera.

I dedicate this particular piece of music by Michael Giacchino to the recruiting efforts of the last month, and the closing that will hopefully take place tomorrow as the empire is restored:

VfB_Cane

The 2016 class: All black and white, virtually no grey areas.

The LB trio is everything we've hoped for, as are Homer, Richards and Joe Jackson.
Malek Young is a sad story that has nothing to do with talent evaluation, coaching or individual effort, just a whole lot of bad luck.
The jury's still out on Irvin Jr.

The rest of the list is either no longer on campus or has been largely invisible.

VfB_Cane

So my hope for the class of 2018 is that
a) the top of the class is as good as 2016, and
b) there aren't as many total misses -- something that has plagued us for years, as TonyCane has shown time and again with his stats and analysis.

raizecane

ESPN has Surtain Jr looking at LSU or Bama

Herbieibis

7 of the 18 kicked off, transferred or retirement- Young.
I just hope South, ain’t the way this is looking. I might blow a gasket!

Go Canes!!

No one is giving us the slightest chance to get the two DBs from Heritage.

Nesta is our biggest need and a must get. After that we’ll see.

Herbieibis

Go,
We going to need a miracle, brother.

1mg of Epi

Bethel is in

1mg of Epi

We will get the AH3. Doubt we get coburn.

Herbieibis

AH-4

1mg of Epi

We aren’t taking chatfield. He didn’t even get a LOI to sign.

Herbieibis

When did this come about. Everything i’ve read says we were after him, which by the way is an area of great need.

1mg of Epi

Yesterday was reported but no reason given. My guess is he told the staff he wasn’t coming. Apparently the staff wasn’t as high on him as the others tho.

Go Canes!!

CIS:

NSD TV & Commitment Schedule - Feb 7
Our Targets
3-star WR Marquez Ezzard - 8:30 a.m. at Stockbridge
4-star DT Nesta Silvera - 10 a.m. at American Heritage
4-star DE Andrew Chatfield - 10 a.m. at American Heritage
5-star CB Pat Surtain Jr. - 10 a.m. at American Heritage (ESPNU)

Go Canes!!

Coburn sticks with Texas.

RCCF

LET'S GO!!

1mg of Epi

Coburn to tx

1mg of Epi

While def didn’t expect coburn, gotta admit I’m disapointed.

UMike

We will pick up Ezzard

Herbieibis

Stock piling the Deeline is slowly going down the toilet.

1mg of Epi

They got on him way late

1mg of Epi

Nesta called UF, told them he’s sticking w U

CoCane

Hurry! Somebody get Herbi a blunt and a Xanax bar!

BigWindyCane1

IMO, we pick up 5-6 more LOIs today, then grad transfers will fill out the roster.

I think Bethel could be the only CB today. If PS2 or TC join the Canes, I will be pleasantly surprised. If they do not join the Canes, I am very happy with who the Canes have now.

I expect Miller, Silvera and maybe Chatman on the DL.

I expect Ezzard at WR.

Any other commitments would be a pleasant and unexpected surprise. Overall, I think it is a great class, and should be a consensus top 10 class for the Canes to build ACC championships on.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think Surtain is headed to Alabama. He has followed a couple players on twitter.

Go Canes!!

One thing you’ve got to give these two DBs credit for.

No one is leaking a damn thing about them.

86Cane

Well, is it safe to get outta bed?

86Cane

Anybody working today?

Herbieibis

Yeah, I called Nesta and he started singing Lonely Boy!

CoCane

I'm going to work at 10:30. NSD ain't worth missing $

Anybody working today?

Posted by: 86Cane | February 07, 2018 at 08:56 AM

Yes. However, Canespace has been the leading cause of decreased workplace productivity since June 16, 2007.

Go Canes!!

VanHaaren: I was told by a source today that Patrick Surtain Jr. was “torn” as of last night. Surtain Jr. announces his decision on ESPNU in the beginning of the 10am hour of our show.

Not Tryna Miss a BEAT!!

Go Canes!!

Ezzard picks the U.

Nice 4 Star pull out of Georgia.

Until now... thy not coming. According to TC uncle. Unlesss he trolling us.

Go Canes!!

#Miami had a great class already signed from the Early Signing Period but adding wide receiver Marquez Ezzard was key. He’s a physical receiver with very good hands and adds to a great collection of skill position players for #TheU. #RivalsNSD

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | February 07, 2018 at 09:25 AM

Silvera is our key. If they don’t come, so be it.

1mg of Epi

Silvera has a chucks doll with him apparently. That’s a UF DL thing.

God I hate recruiting

UpNorthCane27

yea but he's chucking the doll and throwing on that turnover chain!!

1mg of Epi

Ezzard is great but not at a position of need. We do great recruiting O, but struggle w D. Dunno why

thirstybuzzardcane

Great pick up in Ezzard. Physically he looks like he can come in and play right away.

TruCane81

Anybody working today?

Posted by: 86Cane | February 07, 2018 at 08:56 AM

Body is physically in the office.

Now the mind on the other hand......

thirstybuzzardcane

You think if we don't get any of the AH4 that everyone is going to want Rumph's head?....LOL!

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | February 07, 2018 at 09:42 AM

Did seem like a down year for DL in the tri county area though. No Garvin, Ford or Joe Jackson locally for some reason.

Hopefully that's the reason and not something we should be alarmed by long term.

Go Canes!!

These kids are too big nationally to make decisions based on Rumph.

They are bound by nothing and don't and shouldn't have any need to be loyal to him.


RCCF

Nesta is IN!!

RCCF

Chatfield GayTurd!

thirstybuzzardcane

Huge get on Nesta! Definitely a need!

Go Canes!!

Whew.

Massive keep at our biggest position of need.

thirstybuzzardcane

Prediction Surtain/Alabama and Campbell/ Georgia?

UpNorthCane27

Crazy how we go from being Campbells leader all year basically to left at the alter lol.

VfB_Cane

Surtain to Bama.

His Royal Dudeness

Well okay. That didnt go the way we wanted it to, but it went the way we needed it to.

raizecane

Damn....Surtain just blasted Miami

1mg of Epi

Not elite

SinisterCane

SHARPEN YOUR FUQIN' BLADES AND FIND RUMPH

His Royal Dudeness

That settles CB.

1. SR Jackson
2. SO Bandy
3. SR Dean
4. FR Ivey
5. FR Frierson
6. FR Bethel (Redshirt)

The number for CBs next year is 2 MINIMUM. Should anything change the number could go to 3.

LMAO!!!!

raizecane

That fence surrounding the tri-county area has been ran over and destroyed.....

NativeCane

SolarCane was correct....grown men should not waste their time trying to figure out what an 18 year kid will do.

Looking forward to watching NESTA Silvera terrorize QBs.

Go Canes!!

They just hired the DB coach, the kid had no communication with him before that and still went to Bama. T

hey just said on ESPN that LSU had to be shocked becaus of his relationship with Raymond.

Talk about a "business" decision.

raizecane

What did he say?

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

he said he wanted to go where championships are won and that it no longer the case in Miami.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think its huge we didn't get either Surtain or Cambell. I think I'm going to take 2018 off with Soup. Rumph should've landed one of them!

VfB_Cane

Georgia has set a new SEC record for the most number of 5-stars in one class, surpassing Bama’s haul of seven in 2017.


That's what winning championships does for your recruiting.
We need to make 3- and 4-stars play like 5-star-players in order to get the 5-star players.

RCCF

Just an FYI .... DeeJay Dallas is not a lock at RB he was a filler and darn good one, but I am sure that Cam will be ready for that 3rd slot as he is an Actual RB... DeeJay may be primed for Defense.

Tim

Once again the truly elite prospects get plucked out of South Florida. People can sugar coat this all they want but until this BS stops Miami will never truly get back to the top!!! I have been following recruiting since 2007 and every year it is the same story at Miami! Then people dismiss it and say we are fine and then wonder why we get our butts kicked in the fall! The big shots around this program need to come together and do whatever and I mean Whatever it takes to keep these blue chip guys home! The top SEC teams do it and that is why they succeed! Another total failure on signing day!!! Spin it however you want but the consequences will come in the coming seasons when we dont get to where we want to be which is back on top!

CoCane

WHIFF...

Lol

UMike

We got who we got...and we didn't get who we didn't get. 2018 will go on...

Richt must have really made an impression for Mr Surtain to trash him on the way out. I'd rather have had him not even in contention for us than to trash the school on signing day.

RCCF

Where do all these new complainers come from? LoL
and with Accolades... SECURITY lol

Go Canes!!

They just hired the DB coach who apparantly had no contact with Surtain before then.

ESPN just said LSU has to be shocked by this because of his deep relationship with Raymond and the fact he loved LSU so long.

Talk about a business decision.

UpNorthCane27

It's gon be what it's gon be when it's gon be .....

UpNorthCane27

Chatman sign yet?

Go Canes!!

Miller signed. Big pickup

Posted by: Tim | February 07, 2018 at 10:31 AM

You arent wrong. These are the players that u need to win ships.

UpNorthCane27

so this Jordan miller dude good?

thirstybuzzardcane

Chatman signs at 11:15

Herbieibis

Quit blaming Rumph. He’s been gone from the school for 2 years. Out of sight out of mind. This is as much on Richt as anyone. Got on Chatfield late, Surtain was going to be a tough pull anyway and losing those last 3 games popped some mo we had. Games are won with defense. We stocked up the on DB’S and we missed on the Two 5’s, what else is new.
This a very good class BUT I just don’t get Richt’s lack of concern about our defensive front. U lose 6 guys and who knew Mac, Norton and Mayes would fly the coop early, but these baby steps ain’t getting it. Losing 6 and bringing in 3 through recruiting and The Dreaded Grad Transfer is not going to keep us ascending to the top, especially when 2 of these 4 will not be ready. One needs to add some seriou weight and Miller just came out of hybernation one week ago. Silvera will be ready. I guess he will sit on all those ships sitting in his back pocket. I count at least 6 rejections so I guess something’s never change, no signing day magic.
Like I said a very good class that could of been great and that’s what we needed. U have all those ships we shouldn’t be falling short at any position and that even includes LB.

thirstybuzzardcane


so this Jordan miller dude good?

Posted by: UpNorthCane27 | February 07, 2018 at 10:45 AM

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

He's an overlooked player. He's a big guy at 330lbs. His film looked very good and the Miami coaches agreed. We offered him late and still got him.

UMike

No business transaction...UGA just played for and almost won a NC... Miami lost 3 straight on national TV to end the season. I still think we have a great class, but when our season ends like that there will be some we lose to teams like that.

Go Canes!!

Final thoughts on his signing day thing.

I like everyone else gets caught up on who signed where and when today.

But for me, it's over now.

We have perhaps the best skill position class in the whole country and addressed massive needs at RB, QB, TE, OL, DT and even DB.

Yes, losing the Heritage DBs sucked, but when Surtain picked Bama, a school he had virtually ZERO relationship with just a few weeks ago, it again reaffirmed there are forces at work out there we can't control.

At this point, continuing to complain about those two kids starts to feel like a slap in the face to all the Top 5-10 national players we signed who committed early and never, ever waivered.

Nearly all thos guys came in early and are currently busting their asses to bring us a chamiopnship. That's who I care about going forward.

We are going to finish with a loaded Top 10 class, I happy and ready for spring football.

Rumph tha Slump just took a dump on DB recruiting
