The Gators are getting desperate....word is he flew in Art Kehoe for some sort of interview even though there is no Oline job open. He is going to try and get Matt Patchan's commit this way. Patchans family is very close to Kehoe, His dad is good friends with him.

CGNC...great article! Let's hope EVERYONE actually takes the time to read it!!!

If you can re-send some more pictures of you on your horse I will add them. I seem to have only saved the one I posted above?

MidWestCane

Comming home last night, I had a great thought but I could be wrong.

(If Tommy Streeter is worried about being over-shadowed again) then -- Since we don't have any TE's comming into this class, Tommy Streeter could get more playing time (than the other receivers) as a Tight End and primarily as a Wide Receiver. He is big, strong, and smart enough to play in a DUAL ROLL. "A DUAL ROLL"

Think about it. A TWO POSITIONS PLAYER (WR/TE). He would never be off the field. This doubles his NFL stock. And now he is more valuable.

It is possible that this notion have never been expressed (or at least, never PROPERLY EXPRESSED), if at all, to TS.

I don't even know if the coaches have considered this. They have been VERY rushed and busy. But if this is reasonable then someone in Miami must help out and put it to them. It would be your IDEA - I DONT CARE, I JUST WANT HIM AS A CANE (Period).

Someone PLEASE.

Maybe, Im wrong. I don't know, it is just a thought. What do you think?

MidWestCane

GREAT ARTICLE CanesgirlNC!!!!!!

I'm in love?

Can I call you "True Champion" for now on?

86Cane

I STRONGLY suggest that you left click on the photo of CGNC on her horse for a larger view and then right click it to save as your desktop background or screen saver.

Esteban

I think Streeter's a WR and will want to keep it that way. I hope he heads out west to Oregon and does well. I think that would be his best decision to make - well BC would be a good one too.

ALLCANES

MWC i like this idea of having Streeter play 2 positions WR and TE...Also i don't
think we are recruiting big time TE which
i think is a must...

MidWestCane

"I've never posted so much in one day...granted I'm fairly new on here but still.

I think that's a great selling point MidWest, but if I'm Streeter, I don't want to hear that. I want to be the #1 or #2 guy on the offense and get plenty of attention. Plus, to be honest, I don't think he wants to play TE. I know he's 6'6" but to play TE that means he'd have to bulk up some and learn to block.

I know you said "dual role", but he'd still have to bulk up @ some point. Plus he's more likely to get hurt that way. But as a recruiter, I'd def try selling that to him."

You are probally right Mike1023 - Maybe he don't wants to play TE. I know he's 6'6" but to play TE that means he'd have to bulk up some and learn to block. However, we are speculating - I think it is worth a try.

ALLCANES

86 who posted the false statement on patchan?

MidWestCane

I hear ya 86, it is ALL GOOD.

To Esteban:

Why would you say that:

"I hope he heads out west to Oregon and does well. I think that would be his best decision to make - well BC would be a good one too."

To ALLCANES:

"Also i don't think we are recruiting big time TE which i think is a must..."

Posted by: ALLCANES | December 21, 2007 at 01:08 PM

ALLCANES, you are right. The big ones we were after has commited to other schools and with Farr's transfer - WE ARE IN NEED.

Montreal-Cane

In the last 25 years who were our best 3 DC?

Montreal-Cane

MWC we are on the same page...If we want a great offense, we need 2 great TE...

Esteban

MidWestCane, I feel that way. It's not from the Cane Fan view, but from the view of I want to see him grow as a player/person and reach his potential. I think he'll be thrust into the role of being the man at BC with huge expectations and I think he'd step up and fill those expectations. If he comes here the expectations are less since he's already the "other" WR. Most are expecting him to be complementary in college too. He needs to break from that role and mindset to being The Man. Harder to do when expectations are the same, the people around you are the same. Real easy to just keep things the way they are. He goes to BC and he's look at as the big time WR from Miami who's going to be our big time top WR.

ObviousCane

I hate hearing stuff like this....

Rally (Jacksonville): What are the next major ESPN 150 prospects that will committ to Florida? Do you see Scott or Harper committing to the Gators? Thanks.

Billy Tucker: I think they have a good shot at landing one of those backs. I could also see one or two more of Miami's top 150 defensive players following McCray(#6 OLB) to the Gators (where I think he is headed)

86Cane

ALLCANES...to answer your question it is just some idiot who comes around once in a while just to try to ruin the blog. If you EVER see posts from me or another regular blogger here that make no sense whatsoever, just assume it is not really one of us but an imposter.

The policy and SOP here is to ignore obviously FALSE or intentionally inflamatory posts and just skip right past them.

Myself or others who have been assigned administrative rights like CGNC or Solar will delete them ASAP. Thanks!

Posted by: Montreal-Cane | December 21, 2007 at 01:23 PM


Montreal,

I you stepped back and really looked at this class again - It is looking like a dream team.

Tommy Streeter is a clutch catcher - he'S a big receiver - he'S a rise to the occasion play-maker (remember he burned Jeremy Brown to make the first statement in the State Championship game), he is well mannered, and he is "Ivy league" plus "Street" smart. It is without saying - WE NEED HIM.

TLuv

Great article CanesgirlNC.

Is Patchan announcing today?

When is BH going to announce? I saw the article on canesport?

DOG!

86 I have a nice Pic with THE 4 HORSEMEN from MNW, what e-mail should I send them to?

86Cane

TLUV...Did U miss the last blog? U gotta read the blog FIRST, then post.

We already announced via Manny that Patchan is supposed to announce today at 5 PM.

According to all sources BH has stated that he is waiting until NSD in February. No change here.

MinnesotaCane4Life

MidwestCane,

You're right about Streeter, he could be made into a TE like USC did to Fred Davis(WR out of highschool) now look at him, he led the team in receptions this year, and is going to be the #1 TE taken in the draft according to Mel Kieper.

CGNC - good write. Seabiscuit is one of my all time fave movies and great stories. Another one is Cinderella Man, which is a true story of James Braddock - quite possibly and arguably the greatest comeback story of all time for an athlete.
http://www.jamesjbraddock.com/theman/
There are some great lines in Seabiscuit, some of them can be said about the 'Canes. I'm thinking of one line from that movie in particular that would describe the 'Cane mentality of how they changed the perception of the player on the field ... when they made linebackers into defensive lineman, secondary players into linebackers and overall speed demon athletes all over the field ...... Red Pollard: "Though he be but little, he is fierce". A list of former players come to mind when I think of that line from Seabiscuit, and a few of the new recruits come to mind when I think of that line as well. Namely, one of them that you mentioned in your write: Sean Spence. Another great line from Seabiscuit is when Tom Smith was out early in the morning looking over the horses and saw Seabiscuit .. Narrator: "Smith would say later that the horse looked right through him. As if to say, "What the hell are you looking at? Who do you think you are?". That's pure 'Canes mentality.

On a side note: I can understand exactly what you mean when talking of horse shows/competition. My parents have bred, trained and shown their horses in competition since I was in elementary school and they've had horses since before I came into this world. I grew up riding them, primarily Missouri Foxtrotters and a Tennessee Walker - also found out at a very young age that chicks dig horses, esp. if you ask them to come over and you can take them on a ride .... so that was always a good card to have up my sleeve. Now that both parents are retired, the horses are what they do 24 / 7, 365 days .. before they were retired and were both working, it's what they did 23 / 7, 364 days.

Trying to find out right now about Patchan, when and where. If he's holding a press conference, then we're heading to it to cover it.

86Cane

I just checked and we had 275 comments that got sucked into the new spam box by TypePad over the last five days. All were from previous blogs except one from BG1906 (Second!) which I posted.

Some I published on the old blogs and some were duplicates so I deleted them. For the most part, the problem seems to have been corrected now, correct?

Esteban:

You have a point. But I think these Coaches (Three Rings on RS fingers) will instill confidence in that respect. - TS just have to trust - he says he is a God fearing person - then he have to have FAITH in the ones with his best intrest at heart, FAITH in the teachers around him, FAITH in himself.

86Cane

Six...great post! Do what U do and keep us up to date on MP.

CGNC, very nice and hopefully the Canes can do the same soon. Congrats on your Championship.

MidWestCane

ObviousCane:

Don't worry about losing Harper.

Someone posted an article suggesting that RS may hire the fired coach at UCLA as DC for the Canes. That coach is a Great recruiter:

http://rivals100.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=687147

If we get him, we could end up with an inside track to Darrel Scott.

Do you feel better now.

thanks 86

MinnesotaCane4Life,

Could you make that point of yours to - RS or one of the Coaches on the Staff or even to the President of UM. Do it by way of a letter, over nite mail, or hand deliver it - but get that meassage to him.

I am living in IOWA - where behind their pleasant manner is a hatred for the Canes or any Florida Team for that matter. If I was back in Miami a possible good idea would not be unheard when it is reguarding THE CANES.

Montreal-Cane

Apparently that UM narrowed the list to 5 for our next AD...

Anyone knows who are the 5 candidates?

Posted by: ObviousCane | December 21, 2007 at 02:04 PM


Obvious,

I hear we only have room for 33 recruits, we have 27 now and it is not even January yet. Scott is widely know as a better RB. The AB commitment was very exciting but if we get DS, there will be a Super Bowl atmosphere around here. Some people will miss it - because they would be the ones to pass out from such news. Gayturds will be so jellous the temperture will spike up in Florida another 15 degrees. Trust me that will be the Camel that broke Haters back.

MinnesotaCane4Life

I feel Streeter is like Terrell Owens, spends to much time thinking about himself, not the team as a whole. I think that is why he doesn't care to play at Miami, I feel he wants to be the man, and I think he fears he will always play in the shadows with his former MNW players at Miami. He just needs to play the TEAM concept and do what the coaches ask of him and if they need to him to change to TE do what he is asked, I'm sure without a doubt he could become one of the best TE's in Miami history if it doesn't work out for him at receiver. But, I can't be mad at him for going somewhere other than Miami because he needs to do what's best for him in the end and maybe we will look back in a few years and see him blossoming at some other college and say to ourselves he is a baller and just needed to get away.

the only name out there right now is keith anderson the ad for army the other 4 have not been leaked out yet

Hey CanesGirl, nice post. Hey does anyone have a picture of the 5 Canesmen (QB's Jim Kelly, Marc Richt, Geoff Torretta, Bernie Kosar and Vinnie Testaverde)? I think it was taken in 1981 or 1982?

Esteban

Minnesota, remember Streeter's team won the title. Right now its his recruitment process. It's the Streeter team. He's not on the UM team so there is no reason for him to look out for UM's best interest. He needs to be looking out for what is best for him. And if he feels what is best for him is go to a place where he'd be expected to be the Man then that's what he should do. If he wants to be a Cane then that's what he should do. If he feels both those feelings then there is a dilemna to be faced. It's not an easy decision.

Esteban,

Yeah, that's sort of what I was trying to get at. Like I said in the end he needs to do whats best for him. CANES4LIFE

MinnesotaCane4Life

I might have gone overboard with the comparison to T.O.

dj moonbat

If you click on the photo of the coaches talking to Brandon Harris, just look at the picture of Walton in the middle. Seems like he knew something.

TLuv

It sucks that Willie Parker got hurt. But now America will realize what kind of beast Najeh Davenport is.

86Cane

dj...I tell you something else that was very starnge about Walton at the game. He was wearing BROWN not GREEN like the rest of the coaches? I mentioned it to Keoki and Six and they thought it was stange too.

MinnesotaCane4Life

I just wish Najeh Davenport didn't defecate in that womans dorm in college and get in trouble, last night I was at the bar with some friends of course these friends are Big 10 fans. They saw him running for the TD and had to bring up the story about him taking a defacating in a woman's closet in college. Man people never give Miami a break!

pbcfrcane13

still a pretty funny story though
