I'm a huge canes fan, but you can't deny this is a very average class.There is only so much you can polish a terd! This is very disappointing with all the top talent south florida has. It kills me to say it , but the gators kicked our ass in our own back yard.

This just crossed my mind. Look at all of the things that Randy Shannon had to do to bring the unity and family atmosphere back to the U

1) Take the names off the backs of jerseys
2) Mix up the locker room by putting offensive and defensive players next to each other
3) Impliment a wide assortment of rules, change tempo and atmosphere of practice
4) In coming freshmen had to earn the U on the sides of their helment


Most of these things he had to install,impliment before he even coached his first game. He had to watch one of the things he loved most crumble before his eyes. All Randy wants is the best for the U, but he meets resistance at every turn. From the fans to the media everyone wants to have their hand in the pot, but the chef who had professional training isn't good enough.

Why does Randy have to pay for the mistakes of Larry Coker. How much of the snide remarks of this jaded fanbase have to do with the sucess of the Florida Gators? Is the only acceptable thing for A fan of the U a national championship?

OSU is possible but I should be in flight financially so I'll probably just come down to SoFl. It'll be easier to get a ticket to a home game than an away game. lol The more things change the more they stay the same. lol

Texas, 2010 is tougher but we'll be better prepared and more explosive, and even though those squads are tough I'd say they're not as explosive as OU and the conditions won't play a factor like VT, hopefully.

Truthfully though, if we're ready to roll the schedule won't matter.

It's time for the Bosses and Hawgs to emerge. That's what this schedule is. We'll have solid depth and coaching at every position, except maybe CB and LB because of the numbers.

How many years in advance do you have to make the deal?
Who are the people that confirm it's a done deal.

Hell, I thought Swasey should've been fired when they didn't find WMDs over in the desert

It's gotta be his fault

Ya, sorry about the long post, but I was trying to include actual numbers to back it up

Now, someone might bring up that in the season that Miami was trounced by LSU, that they only lost 3 games that season (FSU, GTech, LSU)

That season included a triple OT game win over Clemson (7-4). Wins against Colorado (7-5), Wake Forest (4-7), Virginia (6-5), USF (6-5), Duke (1-10), Temple (0-11), a 195 yard rushing 4 TD effort by Tyrone Moss to beat UNC (5-6), and a unbelievable defensive game by #5 Miami to beat #3 VTech (10-2)

When you beat 4 teams with losing records, 2 teams 1 game over .500, and 3 teams with a 7-5, 7-4 and 10-2 record ... you're supposed to when your own team is full of the #8, #5, #4 and #7 recruiting class - right? Then you go out and get destroyed like that against LSU, then the following year have a 6 loss season? with those same classes except for the 2002 #8 ranked class?

moneycane

Six going all Calvin on us with that post. I ask my self the same question, what's all the fuss about the rankings. Didn't we just see what top classes under Coker got us. FSU and UF have higher ranked classes than us so we can't chest thump awww poor Miami. We are the U, this can't happen to us. Someone needs to be fired!!!! Where is Swasey at?

Seeing Maurice Hagens sign his LOI with that enormous smile on his face was priceless

I love this f'in class of kids being brought in

The post that Texascane had about the Marine talking was awesome, it sounds like this class of Canes coming in

klcanefan

Awesome post, Six.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Not scared of that schedule. Not with this offense. Not with our WR. Not with our OL. Not with our RB. And definitely not with Jacory.

It's time to take that next step. All the main players will be juniors, I think it will happen. It better happen.

Posted by: SuperCooper | February 04, 2010 at 06:08 PM

>>>>>


Agreed but Petri and maturation on the OL are the key to walking through that schedule. Jacory and the Jets won't make a bit of difference if we're still struggling up front.

Petri is indeed the DISH. If he brings this DL up several notches it will make the OL improve several notches. Then we'll be prepared for those teams.

At this point it's technique and mental. I think the muscle and strength will be fine.

moneycane

i cant wait til we renew our rivalry with Nebraska.

you guys think Macjones is hard to understand now, just wait til the week of Nebraska-Miami. all of his posts will be in some Spanish, Egyptian, and deep south slang the likes of which this world has never seen.

Crap, sorry about the double post

solarcane

Six good post!
very interesting stuff there

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

More Bosses in this class than the previous 3.

Defense will have nothing but Bosses by mid-season except for Holmes.

Nothing but Bosses on offense except maybe Byrd, who I expect to be a Boss next year.

Not "all of us" were thumping our chests about landing top 10 classes in 2002 (#8), 2003 (#5), 2004 (#4), 2005 (#7), 2008 (#5) according to Rivals - and not "all of us" are to blame for the hype. Ya, I'm sure a lot of Canes fans were saying that ESPN gave them the #1 class a few years ago or whatever, but it was something to say more in passing than anything

The whole ranking debate is primarily more for water cooler smack talk at the office, or on message boards to debate other message board people who live/die about ratings given by some recruiting site


2002 - one 5 star guy Ryan Moore (Brandon Meriweather & Sinorice Moss were 3 stars)

2003 - three 5 star guys, Anytime Hester, Greg Olsen (transfer from ND), Kyle Wright

2004 - three 5 star guys, Lance Leggett, Willie Williams, Tyler McMeans

2005 - two 5 star guys, Kenny Phillips, Reggie Youngblood

2008 - two 5 star guys, Arthur Brown, Marcus Forston (Byrd, Collier, Spence, Benjamin all 3 star guys - Spence didn't get 4 stars until he verballed to Miami)


Truth brought it up earlier. In 2005, LSU beat the dogsh*t out of Miami - 40-3, the same Miami that had a team full of the #8, #5, #4 and #7 recruiting class as their team. LSU had the #15, #1, #2, #22 class as their team with a QB starting for the first time in Matt Flynn

In 2006, the Canes had 6 losses even after having a team with the #8, #5, #4 and #7 ranked classes in it

2007, the Canes had 7 losses after having the #5, #4, #7 & #14 ranked classes in it

So what about last year - a 9 win season, could've easily been a 10 or 11 win season - with the #14, #19, #5 and #15 ranked classes in it


Needs were met this year. Depth is being built. If you are a recruiting site person, that pays for it and hold dear & near to those star rankings - hey, two 4* guys and two 3* guys, that include the #1 Center and his buddy from Aquinas, with the #8 overall Prep School player ... that's not bad

Three TEs, two 3* players including the Southwest Jr. College MVP - same place where Kevin Everett came from ... not bad

Five LBs, one 4* and two 3* - including players that the Rivals or Scout people probably had zero YouTube highlight film to watch of them ... b/c they SURE THE HELL DON'T GO TO THESE KIDS GAMES IN REAL LIFE TO SEE THEM PLAY AGAINST GOOD/BAD COMPETITION

Four RBs, two 4* and two 3* - including the #7 & #11 overall ranked RBs ... not bad


For those that want to bash the class, fine, your prerogative and you're also not a fan of Randy Shannon obviously. For those who realize depth is being built and needs were addressed - props to you

cat5,
you are one of the very few that realize what a joke playing in the Big East was.

I've said before take our record and take out the gimmie wins over Temple, Pitt, Rutgers BC, Georgia Southern FAMU and you didn't really have to play too hard to chalk up record winning streaks.

Now because of Coker I guess, we are having to play better teams every year and actually be good enough to beat someone.

Cat 5 Cane

It's easy to say, To be the best ya gotta beat the best... you're right.

But how many times did you see us play a schedule like this year, back when we played in the old days of Independent and Big East Conf.? How many were top 20's and how many were cup cakes? Plus we only played 10 games to NC

2001 is the only schedule I could find
Penn State
Rutgers
Pittsburgh
#14 Florida
West Virginia
Temple*
Boston College
#14 Syracuse
#12 Washington
#14 Virginia Tech
#4 Nebraska (Bowl game)

(6) of 10 were not ranked in the top 20.

Strength of schedule makes all of the difference when trying to get to the final top 5

The old time Canes were pirates.
They were bold and fearless.
They terrorized other teams and brought fear to them. They were perfect for that time in history.


Randy is trying to develop a methodical, efficient go about it's business machine that brings fear to other teams because of how it executes its offense and defense.

CaneRock

JSQ I second the anti Swagger until you can win your own conference.


Randy said before you have to play the tough teams if you are going to be ranked. If you beat them you move on up if you don't you at least know what youv'e got.

When did we vote on hating Texas??
I'm out of the loop I'm just begining to be irritated by Tebow.
