berry you should of went to florida this charge would be dropped in 1 month and you would be on 1st team

Hmm, does this mean we are done at RB or is a move to LB for Calhoun in the cards?

Dan Morgan and his pops, hanging out

Morgan was the 1st player in NCAA history to win the Butkus, Nagurski and Bednarik ... IN THE SAME YEAR.

Sebastian

Gore still has to be in the plans I would think

DAU!!!!

The Canes got their latest three recruits (Davis, Hall and Hagens) from USF's backyard. Hagens looks like another mult-talented athlete, who could play several positions once he enters the college weight program, grows and develops.

What's your take on our last two recruits 86? Anyone else?

As for the comments about J. Berry, it looks like the Canes coaches were right about not recruiting him all along. They seem to know something about what they are doing.

Go Canes!

Loco

We better beat them. My district manager and a fellow assistant manager are a USF alum and USF student respectively, and I will be at the game (as will they). I would never hear the end of it

The Truth

Listen here Sopa

Lucy Pinder is an extremely classy woman...I've never met her but over seen her pictures. I can tell.

Miami will wipe the field with USF. You read it here first.

The Truth

But I've seen...

Gore in the plans?

And so can I get a score prediction?

I am going with...27-10.

86Cane

Truth...I heard from one NOT so reliable source that Gore is OUT unless he committs by the end of June. What do U hear?

I like him but he has to decide...

bg1906

ESPN about the new commit.

Johnny Cash made songs about this guy; he is a runaway train. Hagens is a big and powerful fullback from days gone by. Hits the holes quickly and is athletic enough to make instant lateral cute in order to not be hit in the backfield. On the trap, displays good vision and breaks the ball off the trappers rear end. On the isolation, follows the lead blocker till day light shows then bounce it out or cuts back to the inside. A short strider in the openfield that is actually faster than appears. Doesn't really pull away from many defenders but is no slouch in terms of speed. Tough to tackle because of strength and powerful legs. Leaves would-be tacklers in the dust who try to tackle him low and runs over those who attempt to make chest up tackles. Uses the old school stiff arms at times and would just as soon run over the defender as avoid them. Not unusual to seem him drag opponents downfield. Hagens is a powerful locomotive in cleats that will be a very productive fullback if he is in the right system. He is a real competitor who is fun to watch.

bg1906

Gore better hurry. All kids better hurry. I bet we see some more commitments after this weekends camp. I'm looking for the Georgia boyz to get on board and maybe Tapley as well. We shall see! If you want to be a Cane, like they said on Snoop Dogg's 1st Album...

That's the American Dream....Fool you better come on in! HAHAHAHA! LOL

86Cane

bg...thanks, it is getting TIGHT!

Sign now or else...

Loco

It doesn't matter who signs when, unless its that LOI on NSD. UM will give out more schollis then it has because it knows that not every recruit, not every commitment will sign

The Truth

86 I'm not going to pretend to know of any time frame. I'm going to go out on a limb and say there is no time frame cuz he's not officially offered. What I can tell you is he is a legacy choice and he knows it but he thinks he's better than he is. He is teeeeeeeeeeeeenie. Someone tried to sell the roscoe comparison and...no. Gore is a RB. A very small one. Not a lot frame to build on either.

There are bigger fish - litterally - to fry. And if you haven't noticed, the staff has been cooking it up here lately.

canezilla

i love fullbacks the more the better and i hope whipple uses him on red zone situtions im tired of seeing coop getting smashed on the 2 yard line..bring the brick in.patrick hill is a beaaaast.gaytors suk

solarcane

Mike Irvin, forever Cane


I'm watching an old tape of 94 Canes vs
Cuse, Ryan Collins first start where he hits all those passes, and Graves goes 6-20 with 3 picks, Krein gets 5 sacks.

Shelby Hill Syracuse wide receiver gets down on himself and kicks the football.

Irvin goes over to him at halftime and coaches him up. Tells him not to give up, and that he isn't finishing his routes, tells him to concentrate .. then turns back and says
"One more thing never, ever kick the football again in this stadium, that defense right there will will make you pay"

peace

The Truth

I know Marti Jr is over there coaching the DL. I'll try to get you a different perspective...we'll see what the kid thinks for real and not what he tells the recruiting sites.

Sebastian

Are we going to have any issues with any of the kids coming on campus now???

All grades and scores in order??

DAU!!!

Sebastian

busy_cane

Busy, was that soul II soul?

Anyway, gotta question for the board. Who was the better linebacker, Nate Webster or Dan Morgan?

Posted by: canesluvr | June 11, 2009 at 09:33 PM

Not sure about the lyrics. I saw "En Vogue" on a simple Google search and went with them.

As far as the Nate Webster / Dan Morgan question, I have to wonder if it is really a question. Read this!

http://hurricanesports.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/morgan_dan00.html

With all the great linebackers that have played at the U, Ray Lewis and Dan Morgan are clearly at the head of the class.

Sorry Nate Webster, Jon Vilma, Jesse Armstead, Darrin Smith, Coach Michael Barrow, Mo Crum, Tiger Clark, George "Juice" Mira, Jr., Rohan Marley, Rod "Destroyer" Carter, Jon Beason, Willie, I mean D.J. Williams, etc. etc. etc.

You are all in the damn good second class behind Morgan and Lewis.

-cheers

What Truth said does cerainly seem to be the case. Small frame and no offer = ?

shwarma

Do we know if the coaches are recruiting Glenn as a DT or OL? I am jsut reviewing Hurtt's numbers so curious to know.

canesluvr

Got it busy. Point taken. I am definitely "mis-remembering". I always thought Nate was better, and I mean wayyyy better than Morgan. I don't remember Morgan being that dominating until Nate left and he moved to the middle.

I stand corrected.

The thing about Morgan that I'll always remember is how he stepped up in big games and made clutch plays like the interception against Florida State on the goal line that shifted momentum right before halftime.

Morgan was also versatile. He had more than 100 tackles from an outside linebacker position. Who was the last guy at UM to do that? It may be Morgan. But it was as the MLB that he was a consensus All-American and postseason awards poster boy.

The knock on Morgan, which ultimately cut his NFL career short was that he had durability issues. There was always something wrong with him that he was playing through.

I give him credit for playing through a lot of injuries, but he was always an injury report guy.

Met my quota for June. Happy Blogging Canespacers.

I was indeed on USF campus pretty much all day...it was a ghost town most of the day because of the apparent gun issue...Thank you all for the good comments about the blog...Love the new committ today and like bg said expect some georgia boys very soon...

And six i told u man we can go out and get some girls one of these days...haha!

timcanes

i know gore is super tiny but from what i have heard he has great hands... so why not sign him as a reggie bush/percy harvin type?? I am not comparing him to either of them at all i am just using there playing type as an example...Any1 think that may be possible??

Esteban

Webster was a beast. But Morgan was doing his thing too. Just took it to another level when he got moved to MLB. Plus the DL was getting better at the same time so that always helps.

And is there any footage out there of the new commit?

Calvin

I'll say it again, ray lewis was not that great in college, he had some great games, but he didn't have the impact in college like he has in the pro's. One of the main reasons was, after sapp left, teams began running straight at us, and that nullified alot of whatray was use to doing, in fact he got over powered alot, but you put ray behind a good defensive tackle and yall know the rest.

When you look at impact linebackers, ray is in the group, but he's behind alot of guys in my mind that came thru here. He excelled in the pro's once he got his weight up.

To "thee xcuse" you right though man, chris rix has to be considered as one of the all time great Canes. It was like our defense alwas had 12 guys on it when rix qb'ed.

This new committment can be described in 2 words "REAL PHYSICAL" see for yourself, he's coming in to help add grit to the offense!

This last committ is the EPITOME of the type team shannon, hurtt and company are putting together. And at the 6:13 mark, expect to see alot of that this year:

You've got to be kidding me

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4250905

god forbid one arrest and we're thug U, 24 and "they are good kids"

He says "they are 18 to 22 trying to find their way".. Aren't ALL college football players (except BYU) usually 18 to 22? I don't see all of them getting arrested

Jump to the 2:00 mark though.. "what can UF learn from Miami?"

The blog says this is the first time miami plays usf, but i seem to recall miami whipping the bulls by 20 points about three or four years ago.

canechic

You know this Berry kid is probably trouble and I do not condone smoking pot and would not want to smoke it myself or have my kids smoke it BUT CAN WE LEGALIZE THIS CRAP already!!! The CJS waste way toooooo much money and time on arresting people for minor possesion offenses. Not an advocate but have read about many programs that promote legalization in a very effective way in European countries and believe me the US is way behind the 8 ball!

Oh and by the way HOW BOUT Those Lakers!

Luke you looked pretty fine last night, such a bad boy!!!!!


canechic

Timcanes good article!

561 CANE

Great Piece! USF can't even be mentioned in the same sentence as the U. The U will crush them on Nov.28

GO CANES!

561...welcome to The Space! Post here, post often.

10/01/05 Canes vs. South Florida Orange Bowl W, 27-7

We have played these guys before.

shwarma

Canechic, I totally agree though Berry had enough on him someone said (not a smoker so I am not sure waht 28 grams really means) for a felony charge.

Guess he had a little more on him that what you need for a simple puff puff pass with the boys...unless of course he was blazin' with Snoop.
