NajeehDavenport....and I'd still pick EdReed over SeanTaylor everything tht ST was instinctively Ed is knowledge wise ST did alot of RayRay type things playing like a linebacker which is great whn you have the DB's to cover your instict whereas Ed is a smart player plays his area more your TimDuncan style player rarely wrong but it isn't as pretty those two together would have been pure GREATNESS bt I'd take Ed GodBless ST....

I really wish this blog would embrace what is going on with Canes basketball. This isn't Haith anymore, where you ask the best scorers to win games and live and die with the result. It is team basketball under coach L. There is a huge difference. This team will win the games against the middle of the pack like Clemson.

Are they elite in the ACC? They will have to play team ball to get to that level. There is talent there. I wouldn't be surprised if they go on a run from here. I doubt they win the ACC regular season but I think they will be competitive in the ACC tournament. It depends on how dominant the big man chooses to be, and give him time, because he is still recovering from the injury.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

ESPN rumor mill reporting Goldman may have eliminated us, this according to a columnist from scouts.com, i say she's full of ish, but we'll see come nsd.

Also, rivals reporting that Dante Omari Phillips have made his commitment to the turds solid and ready to go.

ESPN is also reporting that FSU TE commit Kourtzidis, or however the hell you spell his name is looking to be very interested in the longhorns, and Mario Edwards seems to be that way as well.

According to itu.com, Howard would not mind staying home for college but that his mom is persuading him to go out of state, mama Howard is a big florida and lsu fan but dad is a big canes fan.

LB

After some hesitation, I've made up my mind about the free safeties.

No one argues that Taylor was a tremendous physical specimen, perhaps one of the greatest at UM.

I give the nod to Reed because of one trait that transcends all others:

LEADERSHIP.

2013 DE/LB Garrett Sickels got a visit from Golden and D'No yesterday. NJ kid.

SJMPARMAN I agree, we need more UM football fans to reallize we have a terrific product in Canes hoops too! Larranaga is going to make this team competitive. Right now its still a work in process as last night highlighted that old habits die hard. The old street ball play under Haith is still prevelent on the team with the older kids like Grant and Scott. As much as I love those kids they need to listen to Coach when he screams "WHY MAKE IT SO DIFFICULT" as Malcolm makes a horrible pass on a fast break.

We are getting there, our turnovers are dramatically lower than last year but we need to keep playing SMARTER on the court. That will happen over time. Conditioning is also getting better (though its clear Reggie is a half season behind the rest of the team) which will ultimately allow Coach L to install his scramble defense more and more.

I am very optimistic and realize that this year is not going to be the year we go back to the dance but it won't be for poor coaching IMO.

UMike

Tyriq McCord @AutobotMcCord1

So a couple people in my skool questionin me bout bein @D3jr93 teammate nxt year... Hes not the enemy no more lol #CaneGang #StateChamps

I think the kid is solid to the canes

UMike

Tyriq McCord - Thank u #CaneGang / #CanesFam 4 ur support. Momma Dukes will be fine

UMike

Papa Cane - Recruiting Update: 4-Star RB Davante Bourque and UM verbal commitment DT Jacoby Briscoe will be visiting UM this weekend. Full court press.

UMike

Chris Nee - Miami (Fla.) Norland DT Teko Powell is visiting #WashingtonState this weekend, along with his teammate and #WSU commitment Feddie Davey.

UMike

What if Patrick Peterson and Trent Richardson had teamed up at Florida rather than signing with two of the Gators' biggest SEC rivals? How different would the ACC have looked the last several years if C.J. Spiller had signed with Florida State instead of Clemson?

Talks about how Florida kids are leaving, but the big 3 still have top 10 classes..free article

Ohio_Cane

Tyriq Mccord - Not. I repeat NOT goin 2 take an offical 2 USC (Southern Cal) dis weekend. Mother caught the flu. Reschedule visit 4 nxt weekend.

UpNorthCane27

SOUP your a lucky man i love Islamorada theres this Tiki bar where you can rent jetskis there ooooo man i had an amazing time there one i forget the name of the place.

4-real it feels good to be the father of the Swag princess but i like to think my daighter shares that title with the other newborn girls from Canespace its a family thing over here.

Big recruiting visits coming up can't wait to see my boy Golden put that full court press and sign them kids up.

UpNorthCane27

Ohio whats going on bro? see you working hard my man, me like me like.....

Idc who we land i just wanna get some playmakers with these last couple of spots. but i would like golden, howard, and bourque just saying loll

UMike

I think no chance at Howard

LB

I'm pretty happy with what we have now, especially if Lockhart is an EE.

Northrup may be lost, but I'm pretty sure we gain someone of at least equal value (perhaps not a linebacker) as a silent.

The fact that Kirby is an EE is probably my favorite news of the whole 2012 cycle.

UMike

LB..I agree...not to mention there have been no reports of our staff trying hard to keep him, which to me says they know something we dont

Ohio_Cane

UpNorth, not much bro, what's up with U?

Goldman is possible, but unlikely.

Howard is VERY doubtful. I'd say 1 in 10,000 chance

Bourque is possible.

Ohio_Cane

Can anyone that sees a Canes recruit that announces when he's announcing post it here? I'm making a list. I've got Avery young so far.

Ohio_Cane

LB, completely agree. Kirby can contribute immediately, especially with the extra reps in the Spring

Ohio_Cane

Papa Cane - Update On DL Eddie Goldman: Per Kristen Kenney, he will announce his choice on February 1st, around 10:30 a.m. - Bama, Miami, FSU, Auburn.

HOLIDAY ISLE MM 84

SOUP

SJM AND Strauzer...I am surprised about how many UM fansONLY follow football. I like UM basketball and love UM baseball and attend both whenever I get a chance.

I live in Central FL so getting there is not always easy and is usually tied to work travels for me in SoFL. I was appalled at the SMALL crowd that was on hand last night for a BIG ACC game. It was sad, very sad.

SOUP

UPNorth...I am working in the Keys today until 3 PM but will be kayaking by 4 PM.

herbieibis

Unless some sort of miracle takes place I can't see, Golden, Howard, Young coming here. That leaves L. Williams, Borque & D. Hamilton as the last of the big dogs, that we may have a minute chance of swaying this way.
I hope Al has a back-up plan for Northrup when he bolts. At one time we had 5 LBs verballed & if he bolts we won't have but 2. Besides CB's, this is a position in need of a lot of depth and talent.

Ohio_Cane

Herbie, as I said a couple days ago, Golden has a back-up plan for his back-up plan. He's got something ready if he bolts.

UMike

herbie, I, sure Golden either has a plan for Northup or knows he is ok..I personally think he bolts. We have a chance with Young, especially with us being his last visit, imo

3G Cane

Soup, you lucky SOB.

herbieibis

UMike,
Our record recently of getting big dogs the last couple of weeks of the recruiting visits ain't too great! I know my man Al is beating the bushes and with him up in New Jersey, working on the class of 2013, it doesn't seem to me he's sweating anything!

LB

Soup, don't post stuff like that! We're freezing our knickers off up here. It's so cold that even the penguins are passing out.

Hassan

If Northrup leaves we are bringing back BOSHER for LB

Ohio_Cane

Jorge Milian - No surprise but Mel Kiper says on conference call that Jacory Harris has little chance of getting drafted. Ranks J12 as No. 22 QB in draft.

Kiper says that Tommy Streeter has a chance of going in the second round. Indicates Olivier Vernon made big mistake by leaving early.

Huge news from Steve Gorten - Canes catcher Peter O'Brien has been ruled eligible and cleared to play this season by the NCAA

Texascane

If Streeter runs in the 4.4's or better, Kiper will be wiping egg off his face...

UMike

Herbie..I agree..he aint sweatin these guys..must no something lol

Ohio_Cane

I think I may have posted this, but Canes have offered the nation's top 2013 WR recruit Robert Foster from Monaca (Pa.) Central Valley

Ohio_Cane

Corey Long - Some of the notable big Fla. movers in the ESPN 150. Noor Davis to No. 25, Duke Johnson to No. 35, A. Cooper and L. Williams in the top 50.

Ohio_Cane

Milian - Latest ESPNU Top 150 has 5 Miami commits: Duke Johnson (35); Angelo Jean Louis (41), Tyriq McCord (96), Deon Bush (101); Malcolm Lewis (145)

UMike

Al might work is magic up north

U just made my day UpNorth! Holiday Isle...been going there for over 20 years & still love it. Rum Runners (with extra rum shot on top for good measure) in the sun with some reggae in the background = pure heaven.

Ohio_Cane

Central Valley High is only about 1.5 hours from me. I may have to go watch Robert Foster play next year if we're in his top schools.

UMike

Ohio..maybe you can convince him we should be lol

Ohio_Cane

U know I'll do my best!! Lol

UMike

Mike Davis moved up the charts..so naturally he had to let everyone know..

Mike Davis @Mike28davis
Espnu ranking is off the charts! I like it

Glad he is not coming here lol

UMike

Jorge Milian - Mel Kiper on Bryce Brown's chances of getting drafted: "Probably not at all."

Ohio_Cane

UMike, didn't need Kiper to tell me that. He has under 500 CAREER rushing yards. Lol

UMike

lol..I know..just funny.

3G Cane

I wonder what Bryce's mentor has to say about his draft status...
