First?

CaneFan47

That was my first comment on this site by the way, I've been lurking here for about a week and quickly realized this is the best Cane Site I've found to date and have been checking back every day. Keep up the good work gentlemen.

CaneFan47...way to get your foot in the door man!

Welcome to Canespace, post here, post often.

New Guy,
SEC is the best overall conference, especially defensively. Pac-12 has better throwing QB's, which could give SEC some trouble and USC, might be the only team athlete wise, to dethrone those guys.

UMike

UMike, I believe the hard opponents are necessary to draw revenue. Cupcakes will draw 20-40K. Bring a Notre Dame or Ohio State to South Florida and you have a sellout.

Tony..I was at the OSU game..FAR from a sellout..but I can understand your point. I do think Notre Dame will bring in a large crowd, but so will winning.

UMike

herbie..that is true about the sec, but that hasnt always been the case.

Ohio_Cane

UAAA skills competition is on ESPNU at 3 pm if U wanna see Duke tear it up in the obstacle course

herbieibis

U are right Mike but as of the last 6 years, that conference has ruled, with no end in sight. As long as the Alabamas of the world keep stock piling the top talent on a regular basis, it's going to be tough to dethrone those guys. I'm not saying they will or any other of those top dogs in that conference will win the ship every year but they will be in the hunt, one of them will anyway!

j.w.

Six, soup, good stuff.
What time is the allstar game tomorrow?

Keith Brown will go back to Miami and Deon Bush will choose Auburn.

Quick predictions on tomorrow commitments. I think Tyriq McCord will choose South Carolina but that's not over yet. Jo. Diggs to Rocky Top

UMike

CoreyLong Corey Long
Just predictions guys...Heck Keith Brown might pick Baylor given the way his recruitment has gone. :)


CoreyLong Corey Long
@@MMarch24 Not really. I have swung and missed on much of their class although I felt like I got a good read on Malcolm Lewis early.

Q

Didn't Auburn lose both coordinators ? Why would anyone go their ?? Come on Deon

Ohio's predictions for tmr night's all star game

Deon Bush: UM

Good stuff 6, would like to have been a fly on the wall to hear the parts you had to leave out. I'd still like to hear about the convo with Kehoe the other week.

Funny thing is, I say I'm not going to get all wrapped up in this recruiting thing each year, but once again, I LIED!

I found myself getting mad b/c I feel these kids don't fully understand the tradition, and see the opportunity to play. The only thing I can think of is a lot of coaches are planting "death penalty" nonsense in their heads.

Further more living in Columbus, I have to listen to everyone tell me how Urban is cleaning up and will restore the program in no time.

Who the heck is Corey Long?

No one too important. Works for ESPN recruiting. He's guessing. Doesn't know these kids

CANESPACE NEWS UPDATE:

We will be hosting a LIVE chat recuiting spectacular on Thursday 1/26/12 at 8 PM.

We will have SEVERAL special guest bloggers here to answer your questions in real time on the blog.

More to follow...

LB

Live chat sounds like cookies. I'll have to mark that down.

"Al Golden's tie can fight terrorism. Why? Because I said so. Now shut up, drink your hooch, and root for West Virginia and their zero national championships. Oh, and Merry Christmas."- LB (to his second cousin), 12/25/2011.

TheWhat

SEC best conference? Maybe. South Carolina, not all that, Georgia they're ok (lost to Boise), auburn without Cam they are middle of the road, Florida (hahaha laughably bad especially for how hyped they are by the media), Arkansas is good/very good, I don't know much about ole miss or the others but all those teams I listed are not elite and can lose to any other conferences middle of the road teams. I would argue the big ten is better Michigan is coming back as will Ohio state (unfortunately), Wisconsin is good and Michigan state is average.

I just want the U back and dominating again. I agree the SEC will always have a team in it, with the money and coaches they have they aren't going anywhere for a while but teams will start catching up to what they are doing and will adjust.

I posted as New Guy but now posting as TheWhat. Love this site and thanks to all that contribute to it.

Good going on the blogging gentlemen. (Soup & Six !)

When I first read Six's post I thought, MAN that is a LOT of cool info! I'm glad you saw fit to "upgrade" it to the status it deserves.

(Your UAAA coverage was awesome reading too Soupster!)

My two "textbooks" arrived today, so I'll be spending much of the weekend doing Coach Golden's (and 86's) homework, and read them.

As a high school coach myself for over thirty years I figure there'll be plenty of stuff in them to help me become a better coach, teacher & mentor.

OK, no more posting from me till I do my homework...

roachcane77

Oh yeah... great job on securing another LIVE chat Soup... marking my calendar for that one too!

Any word on who the new commit is?

j.w.

Jacoby Brissett, DL. Don't know much about him (looking for insight, Ohio!) but it's obviously a position of need.

j.w.

Sorry, my bad- Jacoby Briscoe.

Felipe

Briscoe is listed at 6'2 260 lbs. by ESPN with a score of 40, aka unrated.

j.w.

Here's a profile
http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-Jacoby-Briscoe-119521

Short version- 4 star, DT, listed as "medium interest" in UM and several others including LSU. Getting anyone from Louisiana hasn't been easy lately, so it looks good, especially since LSU

Posted by: TheWhat | January 06, 2012 at 08:21 PM

The what, the who, the where, the new, whatever?

Just post here and post often!

j.w.

The star rativing above is not based on any service, just individual posters. Not trying to mislead anyone, just trying to get this out as fast as possible, so please bear with me if any mistakes are made.

Felipe

Rivals says he had offers from U-La-La, Memphis, TTU, Tulane. Some interest from LSU but no offer. Unrated by them as well.

Felipe

Honestly, with where Brissett wound up last year, where Garmon is going based on it's NFLU status (NOT Miami) and the Iowa depth chart, and where so many other guys are going it just seems like we pay way more attention and are more deductive and rational about recruiting than any single prospect out there. Heck with it, just hoping they produce in a couple years.

hassan

He is listed as a 3* and is 6'4 284

SOUP

I can say this: We will have some media types and UM reps we have NOT had on before.

It's gonna be GOOD!

Ohio_Cane

Aurthur Brown just got smoked by Jarius Wright for a long TD.

Da U N Houston

Auburn released m. dyer from schollie???????? Wow

6'4 290 DT, has the size. Welcome

Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen will enter the NFL draft....lol lol so much for YouTube video

SOUP

Ohio...U are doing a great job but be careful on Twitter. Better to say nothing and be right than say something and be wrong.

Nobody knows which way the wind blows with some of these players!

Briscoe also hopes to bring another recruit on board. He's good friends with Davante Bourque.

"Duvante told me a couple of weeks ago that if I commit to Miami he will too," Briscoe said. "The Miami running backs coach just left his house, so hopefully he'll be in this class too."

Davante Briscoe recruiting profile

Ranking:
Size: 6'3" 200lbs
Projected Position: RB or S
Notable Offers: LSU, Nebraska, aTm, Tenn, Miami

I know, that's why I said they were just guesses

TheWhat

I gotta say that I have great faith in every pick this coaching staff makes. I feel like every pick is deliberate and calculated. Holes are being filled and needs are being met. I could care less about stars. I have full faith coach G and the rest will have all these guys playing at a high levels before all is said and done.

I hope NCAA goes to Clemson. If that was a Miami player that made those comments espn and the rest would be all over it.

U know U are the Golden one! I am sure the emails will heat up over the next few weeks.

CHECK TWITTER AND STAY TUNED!

SOUP

Sinistre...GREAT find there on Briscoe and Bourque!

SOUP

What...I am sure they will be there with bells on since it is the ACC and NOT the SEC. Everyone knows the SEC is giving away $$$ like water but nobody cares.

Why is that?
