Warned you that the AQUA was going to be boiling soon! He's just getting started, trust me. The kid has mad skills...


Im a big supporter of onino head and I think he will be a outstanding HC. But I do expect growing pains.


Revised article by Aqua is up! More photos to follow...


Aqua I'm coming with you!


Yup. Yes Sireee...growing pains alright... like -- What will I do with this here NC Trophies? What will I do with this here group of four star kids that want to go the U but i am loaded in every position? Hehehe. Now this are the growing pains we will see "The Onion" go through.


Told you the kid had skills! Wait to see what we have in store for you next. There are more surprises on the way and the hits just keep on rolling in...


Aqua, very, vert timely blog. Why don't you give us a quick run-down on the official verbal commits. It's not too late is it?? That would add even more proof and give more affirmative answers to your question.

Solar, I KNEW YOU WOULD KNOW WHO STEVEN WRIGHT WAS!!! LMAO! And thanks, I'd forgotten that joke of his. I'm still LMAO!

Monte, what kind of growing pains do you expect?? A BCS bowl loss, maybe. An FSU loss, BIIIGGG MAYBE!

Some close games against say, VT, UNC and maybe OU, although I honestly think OU is going to look like 20-3 or something like that. It's amazing how absurd the press-hype is compared to the reality at OU, especially about their offense.


nice work man,
Shannon has the kids loving him and more important the parents trusting him.
I think kids know its showtime again in Miami. We have been talking about the feeling for months amongst ourselves in the legion. Now the juniors in high school are getting the same crazy buzz.


86, did you see my Vault prediction from the last blog??? It's at the bottom of the blog if you haven't.

Also, I think you should wait a few days in between new blogs. It's nice to see them unfold for a few days and read and react leisurely.

Clearly, we have no shortage of timely and insightful ideas.


Cav, you and I are brothers from different mothers!
I gotta rack out gentlemen, thanks for some good times tonight
solar outz


Cav...now what kind of question is that? If you don't know me by now...I have ALL of your Vault eligible posts, trust me!

Have you looked at the Vault page at www.canespace.com lately? You are on there loud and proud again!


Cav....WE ain't waiting days for new posts. WE have so many talented writers on staff that you can't stop them, we can only hope to contain them. I already have a backlog of 5 days of new post threads just to get caught up!

Here at Canespace, it is "If you snooze, you lose." WE have content coming out our ears and we haven't even gained access yet.

When, not IF that happens, WE will need several ambulances to carry off those who can't take the heat...

Dorsey is 37-2 until (wo)Mandel does his job and actually checks his column for facts. Then we'll give him that last victory. You would think a guy pulling a salary from a media conglomerate would actually do that instead of just trusting the "incoherent ramblings of a guy who will be found out by an interconnected MySpace page." But then again, he's a dweeb, so he has to let fans of other programs come after me for calling him out. Maybe too much to ask from the guy. He can't be dumb enough to fall for the same ploy TWICE! Can he? Dodd over on Sportsline is just as bad. How would you guys rate the Randy era so far? I know, it's all about W's and L's on the field, but so far, he gets an A from me. It's like the black JJ is in the house or something. Steven Wright is funny, his deadpan delivery for everything just cracks me up. He was also the voice on the radio in Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs." Look for the trip down memory lane with the 1987 Hurricane National Champions this weekend over on my page, probably Saturday, but if I get on a roll Friday, it might be up sooner.

We current have a "logjam" at LB (my favorite UM position). We have several LB recruits interested in becoming hurricanes: Floridians--Futch (verbal), Sabino, Robinson, Sean Spence, Lerentee McCray, Ramon Buchanon and Malcolm Munroe (not likely, looking like UF). National recruits: Brandon Beal (not likely, looking like USC), Lynn Katou (high interest between USC and UM; to a kid from Utah thats like choosing to fight for Hannibal instead of the Romans-- SC wins this battle and Lynn loses), and Arthur Brown (five star from Kansas)-- I'm clueless to what he'll do. If he's considering FSwho, he should know that they've signed 6 LBs the last 2 years and have 3 verbals already this year.

I wonder who Shannon's favorites are and how many he'll sign. I wanna see how this plays out...we can't sign them all.


Zakkee...with analysis stuff like that you should do a breakdown of the LB position for this year at the U? What do you say?

DJ... we need your skills as a writer for the blog and the web site. Please email me ASAP at host@canespace.com


We lose Cook, Romeo & T-Good after this season unless Romeo redshirts. Thats 3 LB ships, I say we land Futch, Robinson and Spence. If Sabino comes around (Futch is working on him hard) he'll have a ship. I don't wanna turn any of them away so if you want to get silly lets: Start Spence and Ramon Buchanon off at strong safety since they're a little under-sized for LB right now. We lose Willie Cooper and Kenny Phillips, so thats 2 ships but...damn...I still want Karnell Hatcher at safety. Somebody is gonna have to tell Allen Bailey that he has to move to DE?......Any takers???? Nevermind, he won't give Barrow any lip!

orange 'n green in the vein

All things being equal, give me the kid from Florida, the farther south the better. The first rule of recruiting, recruit yourself. The Randy must own SoFla, fence the place in and then expand the borders from there. Jared Campbell is cool with me, can't argue with the kid's bloodlines, but in general, keep it in SoFla as much as possible. Especially on D and at the skill positions.

Lynn Katou (high interest between USC and UM; to a kid from Utah thats like choosing to fight for Hannibal instead of the Romans-- SC wins this battle and Lynn loses)
Zakkee, that's some funny stuff man! LMAO! It doesn't apply to the Randy since he'd out D odl Cheatin' Pete any day of the week, but it's still funny. Cheatin' Pete is no Scippio Africanas after all.


86, when I get home, I'll be in touch. After seeing solar contribute...I'm inspired!


aqua, tan bueno.

6 months ago, sitting at Titanic -- could anyone see you scripting something like this?


How much is the fare?
THREE years at LEAST...
I'm in --
Shannon DESERVES no less


orange 'n green in the vein

86Cane, you got to get a link that goes from the blog, to the main page of the website, you got one running the other way, but to check out the other pages I've got to type in the URL again. And Steve Walsh is right-handed, correct? He's not one of those left-handed weirdo's like Ned Flanders, is he? Just checking to be sure.


Great post Aqua,
I know that I'm coming with you. This year is just the first rung on the leader of success. This team will be the team that everyone will remember as the ones who turned things around for the U.


as much as i pissed and moaned about the shannon hiring and some of his personel desicions, he outs a top 10 defense together everyyear (even w/o WW) and better than anyone else he is a cane to the core.

and thanks for the new blog


i'm glad media types are still questioning Shannon's ability to affect our offense. the QBs he's already got commitments from - marve, cook, harris - all can recognize what's to come.


I love this place!!!

I have been in upstate NY working for the past few months and can't wait to get home just in time for the season.

86 - is anyone putting together a legion tailgate for the Marsahall game? Tshirts and the works!!


Hey, as far as this season goes, it's going to come down to will the veterans step up and play Cane football, if not, shannon will just go ahead and start prepareing the younger players for the next season. he'll start looking early at guys who want to win and compete like they are trying to win every game.

The one thing i respected about beason, he hustled all the time. So worse case scenario this year is, the veterans don't step up, but, the young guns have to be relied on heavily early, and we take a couple of bumps and bruises, but if that happens, come next year, it's own. So worst case scenario, veterans will be sat down to make room for the real champions coming in.

Josh...shhhh, you are going to spoil the surprise! ;)

I tried to get the Goodyear blimp to take us all up and have us repel into the stadium but they said no go. Some stupid thing about liability. Plus they have read some posts from CoCane and they said he can't come on board, FAA rules!


OGV...I'm working on it. If you click on the "About" button in the left hand column (orange) it has a link and email to contact us.

But it needs to be more prominent I know. I am going to include it in the posts at the top too and somewhere in the thread also from now on.



NEW CONTENT ALERT: Please check the Vault page for new content. Some REALLY good stuff from deep in the Vault. Sure to plesae!

I'll be back around 1 PM to chat.


Aqua...have you seen your page lately? I have your article up over there now too and the entire page and all it's content looks really good!


i dont think this has been posted..if so, sorry.

While some Hurricane fans have penciled Miami Booker T Washington WR Davon Johnson into this UM class, the 5-foot-11, 168-pounder with 4.3-second speed says everyone should take a step back.

"I'm undecided, still open and have no frontrunners," he says.

Johnson speaks with Cane receivers coach Marques Mosely regularly.

"I talk to him about every day," Johnson said. "We just talk about academics, things like that."

He says Mosely is the college coach he talks to most often.

But there are numerous coaches hot on his trail.

Johnson lists 12 offers, including UM, Rutgers, LSU, South Carolina and Ohio State.

"I don't know when my decision's coming out, if it will come out early or not," Johnson said.

He is getting pressure to stay close to home.

"(Jordan) Futch is calling me, asking me to pull the trigger and all that," Johnson said. "I don't know when I will. I'm undecided."

He lists a top four of UM, South Carolina, Central Florida and South Florida.

Johnson spoke about each:

* South Carolina: "I don't know much about them, just know Steve Spurrier's background."

* Central Florida: "David Kelly's a great guy, a father figure guy."

* South Florida: "They've been showing me a lot of love."

* Miami: "I love everything about Miami - the atmosphere, coaching staff, players. I'm from Miami, so I know everything about Miami."


here's the other one from this morning...

Jarien Moreland bio
Talk about it in The Storm Center
Never miss breaking news on Miami sports and recruiting. Sign-up for CaneSport.com Wireless Text Alerts sent right to your cell phone!

Belle Glade (FL) Glades Central OL Jarien Moreland lists scholarship offers from the likes of Auburn an LSU.

"I got MVP's of the Auburn and LSU camps, the overall MVP," Moreland said. "I wasn't going to let anybody beat me."

While Moreland is happy to have the offers, he says there's one school he's focused on also getting a scholarship letter from: Miami.

"I love them, that's the team I root for," Moreland said.

So far he's gotten two letters from UM. The first was a form letter, and the second arrived earlier this week.

"It was a letter that said `I heard you're very interested in us,'" Moreland said. "It just said they'll be following me."

What would happen if UM winds up offering down the road?

"I'm not going to say I'm going to commit right away, I have family to talk to," Moreland said. "But that's going to be a strong point of going there right now. My mom doesn't want me to go far. and LSU's real far. Family's one of the strong points."

Moreland also says Ole Miss is hot on his trail.

"They have sent me thousands of letters, but haven't offered yet," Moreland said. "Their coach saw me in the weight room and I was going all out and he loved the ambition and work ethic that I had. So they're sending a lot of mail, the most of everybody."

Moreland played center last year but is being recruited as a guard.

A 6-foot-5, 310-pounder, he'll play both ways for the first time this season.

How did he become a Miami fan?

"My older brother roots for Florida, but I've been a Miami fan all my life," Moreland said. "I was just a big fan of Miami, loved it. I always went to see Hurricane this or Hurricane that when I was younger."

Moreland's brother is now a defensive end for the Detroit Lions: Claude Harriott.

"I work out with him a lot," Moreland said.


86 you may be gone...but just checking to see if you received my email this morning? I'll check it when I go home for lunch. Things are looking really good on here.


Lyquid...yes, got your email. VERY exciting news all around!

I thought I had sent you a response, but not sure becuase it was late. You are in the batters box by the way here on the blog. We will chat later today I got some things to do this AM...



Interested to hear what idea you got in mind for a tailgate. It'd def. be cool to get a canespace BBQ going


Anybody have the Streeter article. This Kid is Raw


good one aqua! I really think Shannon's plan is working out just as he thought it would!! Go hard early and often for all the local recruits and once there on board then all the rest will fall in place! Plus all these recruits see that Shannon is about business and isnt a snake in the grass like urban cryer or nick satan

Davon & Aldarius need to go ahead and commit and they should offer the OL Moreland as well

which recruits does everybody think UM needs to land in the most the 08' class???

GO CANES...love the site fella's

dj moonbat

"which recruits does everybody think UM needs to land in the most the 08' class???"

Beef. We're not seeing enough beef. And we need another dominant corner to go opposite Patrick Johnson, so that our safeties can get back to ball-hawking.


86, I hear you about the content. LOL. But did you get my Vault prediction for this site...."By the end of this calendar year you'll be making money on this puppy!"

The Sun-Sentinel might try to buy you out. LOL.

DJ, I agree OL and LBs are the most impoortant for this incoming class. After them, I'd say DBs because we'll be losing a few next year.

dj moonbat

Oh, and don't we still have no kicking game?


As far as recruits, I think it's good when these kids take their time to commit and decide. The product they'll see on the field will do more selling than anything else.

Zakk, once these West Coast players see true Hurricane Football they might understand why Hannibal was arguably the greatest general ever....Scipio Africanus wasn't far behind but $weet Pete definitely is nowhere near him.

I say we land at least one of those Left Coast ballers. Carroll better watch his back.

After a few years we may even snag a few from Suckeye land. lol It will be possible.


Good point DJ. That's in the top three.


dj moonbat, brandon harris is supposed to be that guy.

i'm just all about the best players you can bring in, bring in. as far as the beef goes i'm figuring we got 1 commit already that's OL and i think we'll end up with Patcham. One more OL player would be nice, but not absolutely needed. Lots of beef on the defensive side already and should be some more added. LB is the position i would like to see the numbers at.


Demand Dorsey:



Im coming with U!!! Damn Aqua- for real bro! I wish I wasnt so damn busy this week other wise Id be on everyone of these blogs about 50 posts! This blog and this site are the real deal boys! and 86- feel free to stick THAT on your Canespace front page!


Are far as beef is concerned, on the d-line we should finish with: Fortson, Benjamin Jones (I want to see how he plays this season after being injured last), and Corey Luiget. O-line: Patchan, Mike Goodman, Jarien Moreland, Ricky Barnum, or Greg Shaw (not confident with him, he might follow his brother...some kid named Willie).
