'07 Cane

well, now that Wake beat Duke it adds a little extra meaning to our Wake game on Wednesday...

CarolinaCane

you guys got it all wrong--it wasnt tubbs theyve been going after for dc, it was stubbs, daniel stubbs

Canefantasy

I believe we have a chance to pull in the best class or top 5 class.
Sheldon Richardson is coming this weekend. We are weak at Tightend and he can play as a freshman.
Quinton Washington is tired of living in the country and wants to play in a big city...WELCOME TO MIAMI!
Peter White- With a visit this weekend maybe we can sway him our way.
Bob Massie- May be a long shot but still has us on his list.
Marcus Hall- Loved Miami just has to sway mother when Shannon visits.
Daniel Campbell USC stopped recruiting him and we just started.
Andrew Tiller- Has potential for the future is a big boy. I am sure he ends up here if we want him.
If we can pursade Greg Reid or Debose, or Olson maybe we can pick up on more special player.
No matter what the outcome this is a great recruiting class.

Mary lou feel better, I have learned the hard way-always bring alcohol or lysol to work and spray computer daily and especially the phones!! But then if it is airborne??? You are just screwed!

Go Canes!

If we say that we hypothetically have 5 spots left, how would you guys like to see them filled? Here's my fav 5 in order of likelihood

1) Barrington
2) White
3) Richardson or Charles
4) Hall or Washington
5) Debose or Reid

Just noticed that charles is taking a visit after signing day to USC according to Rivals

if my wife and i are trying to "eat right" and lose a few lbs, what the hell are we gonna eat during super bowl? the only idea i have so far is to grill my chix wings!

SOUP

Five spots left and what to do?

Fill them with smart student-athletes who are dedicated to the weight room, being agressive, are team players and most of all who want to Hurricanes.

Then coach them up!

Canefantasy

Shwarma,
I love the list. I think that Sheldon Richardson is a must get. I dont think that there is a bigger need on this team then Tight End right now. I forgot about Barrington though he would be a nice add, but I think if everyone stays healthy we are going to be amazing at LB. Brown ROLB McCarthy MLB and Spence LOLB.

1. Reed
2. Sapp
2. Lewis
3. A.Johnson
4. R. Wayne
5. Wilfork

We have 20 commitments. RS said he'd like to take 27. We may or may not get that number. Here is my thoughts on the finish.

1.) Sam Barrington
2.) Peter White - Distance proves to be a non-factor and we land him
3.) Terrell Mitchell
4.) Daniel Campbell

The final 3 spots, if they can be filled are up in the air. These would be horses!

1.) Sheldon Richardson - long shot, but a shot
2.) Marcus Hall - Maybe 25% chance, but I still think a long shot
3.) Debose - If he visits, I think we have an above average shot, no visit, then no go.
4.) Bobby Massie - 20% shot
5.) Greg Reid - very little chance with no visit. If we can persuade him not to sign on signing day and visit the following week, then we have a shot. If that doesn't happen, no shot.
6.) Quinton Washington - I like this kid and think we can pull him, if DISTANCE isn't a factor.

Three CANES made the list of offensive bust from the 2002 recruiting class

http://cfn.scout.com/2/614353.html

They also agree that Miami did a poor job of recruiting under Larry Coker. Below is a blurb about the re-ranked 2003 class, which was originally 6th. The 2004 class fell out of the top 20 after re-ranking after being dubbed a top 3 class overall.

17. Miami – Larry Coker’s recruiting classes always looked better on paper than on grass, a major reason why he’s currently out of work. The 2003 group was no different, providing some decent starters, but no star power beyond the electrifying Hester. Olsen was the closest thing, but even he never erupted with the ‘Canes, catching just six touchdown passes in three seasons. Beason was the teams’ best defensive player in 2006, taking that momentum into the NFL with a year of eligibility left on the table. The haul of offensive linemen that included Morse, Bain, Rochford and Cyrim Wimbs was supposed to be the program’s best in years, but has yet to produce an all-league performer. For a variety of reasons, Wright and Moss haven’t approached their top 5 designation, but Wright has one year left in Patrick Nix’s system to redeem himself. By the way, how in the world was H.B. Blades allowed to escape this Miami class?
Hits: TE Greg Olsen, CB Devin Hester, LB Jon Beason, G Derrick Morse, LB Glenn Cook, TE Kevin Everett and P Brian Monroe
Misses: S Willie Cooper, RB Tyrone Moss, QB Kyle Wright, OL John Rochford,

Ex-Miami QB considers Tech

January 26, 2009 · Print This Article

BY DON WILLIAMS
AVALANCHE-JOURNAL

The Tampa (Fla.) Tribune reported Sunday that Texas Tech is one of a handful of schools former Miami (Fla.) quarterback Robert Marve is considering as a transfer option. The Tribune quoted Robert Weiner, Marve’s high school coach in Tampa, saying Marve is looking primarily at Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Purdue, Tech and South Florida.

As a redshirt freshman last season, Marve passed for 1,293 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He was suspended from Miami’s bowl game, however, and announced in December his intention to transfer.

Weiner said Marve won’t announce his decision until after the Feb. 4 national signing day.

“It’s still an ongoing process,’’ Weiner told the Tribune. “There are a lot of schools that are interested.’’

Marve, listed at 6-1 and 210 pounds, was Florida’s schoolboy Mr. Football in 2006 and a Parade magazine all-American. He is a son of Eugene Marve, a linebacker who spent 12 seasons in the NFL.

Also with Terrell Mitchell, that's assuming he has or gets a committable offer.

hurriphin

Hang in there Mary Lou!!

and speedwrecks, Bryce Brown is good but not Adrian Peterson out of high school good. Peterson ran so violently that you can tell guys were scared to tackle him. Plus one thing that Bryce Brown doesn't seem to have from the highlights I've seen of him is much shake or even a faint make you miss in the open field quickly move. The spin move seems to be what he does or he tries to out run the person to the outside. It's a good spin move, but he's gonna have to develop another move in the open field or he's not gonna break as many big ones as he'll have the chance to.

bg--i know who the dc choice is now--between you and me, it's mike fiori isnt it?

soup great article

Here's an idea.

Contact Habitat For Humanity Miami

http://www.miamihabitat.org/contact/board.html

or the

UM Butler Volunteer Center

http://www6.miami.edu/UMH/CDA/UMH_Main/0,1770,2577-1;29655-2;1241-3,00.html

Get as Many Canespascers as possible to dedicate one weekend or one Saturday this year to help those that need it most.

Bring plenty of Canespace Shirts and
Have Manny tell the right people Canespace is doing something over at ______.


Charity work is much more rewarding when it's done for the good not the publicity, but You would be helping people and getting Canespace some valuable good press

good luck
peace

Bg - While we do have 27 slots, we only have 15 next year so I think carrying over one or two ships' would actually be a good idea.

I thought Mitchell was out that's why I didn't include him (thought coach said we got in too late) and as Campbell is a grades issue I purposefully did not include him since that has more to do with academics than recrutiing (the reason why certain kids are never even recruited to begin with)

I agree with what you said about Debose and Reid (hence why I put them together on my list) though I am suprised you have Massie ahead of Washington (I think the last visit always helps and thats why I put him on my list and not Massie. Also I think Washington is battling with the same issues as Hall, hence why I put those two together)

Charles I am realizing is a total pipe dream (since he is stretching out recruiting I actually think this hurts us) so maybe he should be replaced with Mitchell

Texas,
Remember I told you four weeks ago TT was offering Marve a look?

I said Marve couldn't pull of Nix's five plays how would he learn something like TT's offence??

that was cold analogy.... but everyone that read it grinned

canesteeler you in Miami or Pittsburgh?

CaneSniper

Greg Reid is 5' 8" and 165 lbs. Even if he's got great speed do we really see him as a dominant player at this level?

CaneSniper

Marve looking at OK and OK St is a joke. His dad made a big public plea for Robert to get cleared to play at Florida becuase he has cancer and needs his son close. Now he's looking to bypass UCS and USF for an Oklahoma school. What a joke.

canesteeler

I hate the fact the Steelers have no Canes on their roster I was a Steeler fan growing up in New Kensington PA way before making my way south in 1980 and becoming a Canes fan.

CaneSniper

I don't think we have a shot at Massie, DuBose or Greg Reid. But I'm think we get Marcus Hall and Pete White. Sheldon is a long shot. I agree that we will likely get Barrington also.

CarolinaCane

letting hb blades go to pitt is not as bad as letting maurice crum jr go to notre dame!!!

I saw that some of you got into an old school wrestling discussion a few days ago. Which wrestler's character do you think best represents the mentality of the U?

The Rock?
MVP?
Sid Vicious?
Scott Steiner?
Legion of Doom?

Mr Troutman

Weiner said Marve won’t announce his decision until after the Feb. 4 national signing day.

“It’s still an ongoing process,’’ Weiner told the Tribune. “There are a lot of schools that are interested.’’


Who is this guy kidding. Schools are buisy recruiting other high school talent and they know they are taking a risk with Marve. I'm not bashing the guy but don't SOUP everyone up on thinking he is wanted by a lot of schools. Inheriting a problem is not on everyones priority list. He has potential no doubt, but he has to settle down and be a mature athlete. Shannon has done all he can with him so it was best that he parted ways and move on.

SuperCooper

FYI, Whipple met with Bryce last night in Nebraska, then he drove to Kansas to meet with Butler. Earning that paycheck, lol.

CanesgirlNC

Canesniper - I know - Eugene Marve has spin moves - problem is they are old and don't really work well

MaryLouAlumni

We spray with Lysol and rub our hands with that sanitizing stuff, but to no avail. It's hard to say who I got this from, but to be blunt, the office that I work in, is loaded with green card foreigners, who, quite frankly, are not the most hygenic. But, it could have come from anyone and floating in the air or on the paperwork, the keyboard, the pencils etc. I have to touch everything doing this job. I don't want anyone to think that I harbor any ill will against anyone. I'm a very caring person, but it gets a little tough, when nobody speaks english and they aren't clean at all. But cleanliness covers everyone. I'm rambling, so forgive me. I just took another pill!!
Later

Glad to hear that Super. I understand all the noise going on with this, but I think in this particular instance, patience and acceptance (meaning it is what it is regarding the way Butler is handling this) is the way to proceed.

I only see Bryce wearing orange and green.

LOL - someone has gotta run that scout team! Ouch!!!!! ;-D

GO CANES!!!

Shwarma,

They were in no particular order. Washington I like a lot. Mitchell is on tap to visit this weekend. With the numbers, RS himself said he's looking to sign 27, so we may or may not get that number, but that's what he said in his last press conference. We've had some attrition and also I'm sure there my be several more players between now and fall that may leave the program as well. Campbell, even with grade issues may sign with us, but still have to go to prep school again, or may get the scores. We'll see.

canechic

canesteeler yes we still love you, just hate the sqeelers! LOL

Eugene has done his son the biggest diservice. He thinks he is doing good but I think he has made a mess for Robert. I hope he (Robert) gets his life together and starts taking better advice.

Go Canes and Go Cards!!!

CanesgirlNC

MaryLou - hang in there! Coming in contact with so many is tough. My friends own a restaurant and handling all that money - they are always getting sick

Yup, and his dad was impressed from what he heard from Whipple. Good news indeed.

Is cold in NC canesgirl?

bg1906

Super...

Whipple is a smart man. That extra effort will pay off huge. He didnt' have to do that. I'm sure they appreciate the extra effort.

Mr Troutman

MaryLou,

That just mean the office is immune to Lysol and any other spray that is sprayed. You all need to treat that place like a hospital and keep it freezing so air borne bacteria will die. Better yet U all need to wear the hospital mask that prevents U from breathing.LOL!!

31 degrees here in boone, nc--going to snow a bunch tomorrow
