The Dude

Just need a certain CB w/ a certain LB.

SOUP

Man the stuff is JUST getting good!

SOUP

UMike...I sent as few more.

Willie Will in Nashville

Soup,

did u get my last post? lol

hassan

Lockhart is a stud.


We need to quit stressin who has inside info and who does not. just be happy to have ANY info lol made up or not, we have 9 months til we see them play and we need to be entertained. Other sites have just that "cane entertainment" and they charge for their "inside info" like Brown to UM and whatnot lol

His HS coach TOLD me his is not coming to UM. there are people with legit inside info but if we keep attacking people and whatnot that info will disappear. there are only a FEW guys not employed by UM that have access and get this info out, lets not ruin it by outing them or worrying how they get it.

j.w.

Agree, hassan. We just need to enjoy this haul, this is reminiscent of another big class we brought in around 1998.

raizecane

So how many do we sign this year???

orange 'n green in the vein

raize, that's a trick question as the NCAA will only count the ones who enroll in the fall and early in 2013 as "this year." So by that definition, the full 25 is my guess. Now how many will actually join the team in 2012? 28-31 maybe?

Has anyone heard the rumor that Randy is to be DC at Tennessee and he is taking Barrow with him?

Texascane

Nothing like those heralded recruiting classes...

"In late November, Florida lost two more players from its highly touted 2010 recruiting class. Josh Shaw and Lynden Trail became the eighth and ninth players to transfer from the program from that class, one that came in with high expectations.


Ronald Powell was the top overall recruit in the country in 2010 but has failed to live up to expectations so far at Florida.
The departures have certainly diminished the impact of a class that ranked No. 1 in Scout.com and ESPN’s rankings and No. 2 by Rivals.com. In all, Florida has lost 10 players from that class – one was dismissed by Urban Meyer last year, two more left the program before the start of their freshman season and seven more have transferred since Will Muschamp was hired to replace Meyer." Orlando Sentinel

Q

Tex I keep seeing that Randy is gonna be the Defensive CO at Tennessee. I have not heard anything about Coach Barrow. I like Barrow and I dont think his ties to Randy would have him leave Miami...would be a shame though. We have young linebackers and the special teams with the guide of him and Coach Golden played very well this year...

I love the committed kids Miami has Not all about stars and being highly rated. These kids have heart and want to be apart of what Coach Golden is building ! Cant wait for Feb!

It's been a pretty special 24-hour span for the University of Miami's football recruiting efforts.
The Hurricanes, who lost a handful of key underclassmen last month who announced their intentions to enter the NFL Draft early, picked up four commitments including two U.S. Army All-Americans on Saturday -- Miami Columbus safety Deon Bush and Tampa Jefferson defensive end Tyriq McCord.
Bush (6-1, 185) is ranked as a consensus top five safety in the country by ESPN and Rivals.com and picked UM over Alabama and Auburn. McCord (6-3, 222), ranked 7th by Rivals at weakside end and 13th nationally at his position by ESPN, chose UM over South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

--------------------------------------------

To add to OGV's point, I say when it's all said and done, this class ends up being around 32 kids total. EE included

WindyCane-Forecast1

Rivals updated their rankings (post-U.S. Army Game) and moved the Canes up to #6, past FSU who sits currently at #9.

This is a really good class, with a good mixture of talent. I have seen a lot of these recruits play in person or on TV, and I have been very impressed. They all can play or have good upside potential. The recruits also indicate that the Canes will continue to run a pro-style offense as they did this year. It also appears they will transition to the 3-4 on defense. the depth chart competition will be interesting in the spring and next fall. The Canes may surprise some people in the ACC.

I also think there could be a few more surprises before or on NSD.

pbcfrcane13

Working with a FSU fan who is telling me he has been reading tha Reggie Northup is looking at FSU and UNC now. Did I miss something?

LB

Golden is starting to set precedent for his ability to close. I'd have to believe, based on the awesome teaser-trailer comments from 86 and crew... that there's a nice little surprise coming.

Few questions:
1. Who's the jester/comedian of the current squad (not counting the 2012's)?

2. Does Henderson become the LT?

3. Reports are that Al Golden's tie fights crime. Any updates?
(A snarky recruiting remark would be welcome.)

4. Who, if anyone, pushes Walford for the TE spot?

5. Do they plan to run the "Raising Canes" documentaries indefinitely (or does the 3 Penny Film contract run out at the end of the year)?

SinisterCane

NCAA's next target?


http://www.fitsnews.com/2012/01/06/sources-clemson-stars-family-received-improper-benefits/

j.w.

I have heard that 33 is our target number- 8 enrolling early that count against last year's total, and the remaining 25 for this year's class. Not sure how accurate this is, I thought, based on the numbers we have, that 31 was the maximum number.

1. I always hear about Mike James being a comedian, telling jokes, etc.

2. Yes. With (IMO) Flowers at RT

3. Golden's tie does indeed fight crime. It's the secret piece of apparel under Batman and Superman's costume. He lent it to them. They wouldn't dare try to steal it.

4. Asante Cleveland

5. Last I heard, the Raising Canes will continue.

Ohio_Cane

Ramon Buchanon coming back!! Awesome!

He should be a starter.

Ohio_Cane

That news was Papa Cane ^^

Ohio...how lazy...copying other peoples info hahahah

Uh-Oh SOUP, looks like Moss may be headed to Oakland:

"The Dolphins have announced their interivew with Green Bay offensive coordinator Joe Philbin has concluded this Saturday afternoon.

Great.

I'm wondering if they interviewed the best Green Bay assistant?

The fact of the matter is many NFL people I speak with tell me the biggest budding star in the Green Bay Packers coaching staff is assistant head coach Winston Moss. Yes, Joe Philbin is considered to be a very good coach. He is a solid X and O guy and he has no problem communicating with most of his players.

But those same people tell me Moss commands a room when he walks into it. Those people tell me when Moss speaks, everyone listens. They tell me Moss will be a head coach in the NFL and if he gets into the right situation, he will be a bigtime winner because he knows football, knows how to pick good people, and is a natural leader.

And so again, I ask, are the Dolphins interviewing the right Green Bay assistant?

I know this: The Oakland Raiders are becoming the Green Bay Packers of the west. They've asked former Packers general manager Ron Wolf his opinion on all things from hiring a general manager to hiring a head coach. No, Wolf is not oficially working for Oakland but his words are resonating.

So it comes as no surprise the Raiders hired former Green Bay director of football operation Reggie McKenzie on January 5. McKenzie has the power to fire and hire head coaches. And, again, people I'm speaking with tell me McKenzie is seriously considering firing head coach Hue Jackson.

And if that happens, McKenzie will ask for permission to interview, you guessed it, Winston Moss."

I would say 33 is about right, +/- 1.

Posted by: CaneRock | January 08, 2012 at 11:27 AM

As U know Moss has been MY GUY for over 2 years now. I wanted him at UM and now want him at the Miami Dolphins.

SinisterCane

Ramon Buchanon coming back!! Awesome!

He should be a starter.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 08, 2012 at 11:17 AM

Respectfully disagree

What has he done to be penciled in as the starter? Looking at his body of work I see nothing more then a undersize self-entitled player with no play-making ability and Golden shouldn't appoint him as a team leader with brush with the law.

LB

Sinister,

If you can recall, Golden did give Buchanan his approval before the season even started. He was starting, and I didn't hear anything negative about him based on the comments given to the press before and during the season after the legalities were finalized.

He's not exactly a proven entity, but he's also not a freshman. We have Perryman as one LB. Who are the other two/three? Buchanan's just a good a name as any (Cain, Gaines, Paul) with experience and speed to boot. With the loss of Spence, it cannot be a bad thing to pencil in someone given a nod by Golden with a year of experience in the defensive system.

I'm not defending his idiotic lack of judgment.

I'd much rather Buchanan start at LB over Armstrong in the secondary.

LB

Another question:

Which of the 2011 class who didn't see significant action looks to have developed the best?

SOUP

LB...I'm OK with Buchanan at LB also. I think he has the skills and experience we will need at LB in 2012.

My selection for starting MLB is Gionni Paul IF he can get the playbook and pass coverage down. Word is he is a weight room junkie and is getting bigger and stronger this offseason and is a run game stuffer.

He may play on first and second down and be pulled on third down or second and long next year until he can become a complete player.

SOUP

Posted by: LB | January 08, 2012 at 01:00 PM

Can U give us the entire list of 2011 recruits to choose from? I can't remember them all off the top of my head.

I do like Dallas Crawford, Finnie, Paul and Felciano.

orange 'n green in the vein

"Posted by: Texascane | January 08, 2012 at 01:31 AM"

Read that two days ago on a Puke Orange board. Rumor also said Shannon wanted to bring in his own DB coach with him and that he was lining up the next head coaching gig at UT when Dooley gets the can.

orange 'n green in the vein

Oh, and Ohio, CGNC, skating penguin fans et all on here, how great was Broduer last night? Looked like he was 29 instead of 39 all game long. Try to stay in front of the Isles, the Flyers will be back in reach in the standings soon for you. ;-)

hassan

These are our EE's we should be able to get at least 8-9 of these. Northrup may not even be in this class and he def wont be an EE. We need Northrup IMO. I think our depth chart will look good there soon. if we get 9 EE's our class will be 34 so we have 4 slots left minus our one Silent, So 3 spots left saving for big time players. We will end up a top 5 class.

1.QB Gray Crow
2.QB Preston Dewey
3.WR Robert Lockhart
4.OL Ereck Flowers
5.OL Taylor Gadbois
6.LB Raphael Kirby
7.LB Josh Witt
8.CB Vernon Davis (Maybe)
9.CB Ladarius Gunter
10.CB Larry Hope

CaneFan47

What should we make of these rumors that Jeff Fisch is high on the list for The Bears "passing-game" coach? Any chance he leaves? I dont think so seeing as he left the Seahawks to come here, so why go back, but I dont really know much about the guy.

Sinistercane

Rumor

Sanctions handed down per TOS

Q

Lucky Miamis coach is Jedd Fisch...jk.. they also said he was leaving to go coach at florida. Rumors

on shannon. That's the only snag they have with him is that he wants more security when dooley is fired

Dallas Crawford. Wait till U see him ball this year!

Q

Ricardo Williams imo and Finnie

SOUP

Fisch is gonna be high on the list for OCs anytime one comes out, just like Golden's name gets floated around now when a head coaching gig comes up.

Doesn't mean anything until it comes for UM that he is interviewing. until then sleep well and rest easy.

RCCF

As a Bears fan NotGonna Happen we Hired MikeTice so no Fisch wont be in Chicago.....

Q

Preston Dewey wants to wear #7 gotta wait that's VT #

UMike

Miami received a commitment from Tyriq McCord Saturday at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl but the Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson defensive end still plans to visit USC this month and the Trojans are definitely in the running.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!
