Here's what U don't know: According to a few sources Wilder allegedly had his grades "fixed" so that he could even get into FSU. Now he could be OUT. Sad.

4-Real

Joe S.

I dont know why he was a 5 star anyway hw sucked the couple games I saw him pkay. He just had his man body already in high school but i never saw anyrhing exceptional fron him on the field.

herbieibis

Real, you're exactly right It's where you go, the coach & the system.

Swami for CEO

Joe...U are 100% correct. In HS football it is easy when U are a man playing against boys. But when U get to college there are ALL men on the field. Games changes A LOT!

I think I've got something to contribute to that one.

When Randy Moss got axed from both FSU and Notre Dame, he made his 2 year stop at Marshall. While at Marshall, two students were sent by the athletic department to make sure he went to class. Anything more, you'll have to email me.

Wow... this Heyman kid seems like quite the athlete.

So he's coming in NOW?

Anyone but Wilder.

I'm jus sayin...

This should get interesting ...

The head of Florida State University told Gov. Rick Scott's higher education reform panel Monday that budget cuts are making his faculty a "farm team" for out-of-state schools.

Of 58 arts and sciences faculty members who received outside offers, Florida State was able to retain only eight, Barron said. He said they received offers that averaged $20,000, or 24 percent, more than what they were making at Florida State.

You've got mail, CEO.

Heyman may come in here as a kicker, here He is kicking a 57 yarder in practice.

But I'd like to here Sixer chime in on this part of the article.

"The Miami coaches are pretty sure they can turn me into a first-round draft pick."

LMAO

He didn't specify what sport, though Canerock. :)

One thing when discussing rankings vs record is that the former is a lagging indicator. For most players it take a minimum of a year before they become a contributor. In this case, I would be conservative and say two years.

Here's Miami's yearly Rivals ranking, as well as its record two years later:

Year Ranking Lagging Record
2002: 8th 9-3
2003: 5th 9-3
2004: 6th 7-6
2005: 7th 5-7
2006: 14th 7-6
2007: 19th 9-4
2008: 5th 7-6
2009: 15th 6-6
2010: 16th ?
2011: 36th ?

But He's a 3*!

orange 'n green in the vein

Floriduh, the one program in the nation so mediocre that not even Andy Lopez can manage them to a win for all the marbles!

I mean, it's not like miracles don't happen every day, Sid doesn't even limp when he walks to the wrestling ring now despite his all-time catastrophic maiming over a decade ago, what's the turds excuse all these years in the making for their lameness?

4-Real

Travis is a 3 star with over 40 offers CaneRock, unlike Skreetz boy Brisley Estime who only has a handful of offers from Stoney Brook, Tennessee St. & Willie Nelson's Truck Driving School lol

86/CEO- sent U an email. Please let me know U got it.

Perhaps the more accurate way of looking at this is to take a three-year rolling average of Miami's Rivals ranking. This would more properly reflect the star-based talent of a squad at any given year. Thus here are the three year recruiting ranking averages, compared to the record of the time:

Year 3-Yr Rolling Avg Record
2004: 6th, 9-3
2005: 6th, 9-3
2006: 9th, 7-6
2007: 13th, 5-7
2008: 13th, 7-6
2009: 13th, 9-3
2010: 12th, 7-6
2011: 22nd, 6-6

Now let's compare the three year recruting ranking rolling avg to actual record for a few other schools:

USC
2004: 6th, 13-0
2005: 4th, 12-1
2006: 3rd, 11-2

2008: 4th, 12-1
2009: 5th, 9-4
2010: 4th, 8-5
2011: 3rd, 10-2

UT:
2004: 11st, 11-1
2005: 18st, 13-0
2006: 14th, 10-3
2007: 10th, 10-3
2008: 8th, 12-1
2009: 8th, 13-1
2010: 7th, 5-7
2011: 4th, 8-5

2008: 7th, 12-2
2009: 4th, 14-0

Or maybe He found out AG ain't with the "puff puff pass". YEAH MON! Feelin' irie, GANGA MON!

herbieibis

I don't think we need any 5'7 LBs anymore.

Just think, without a bad call in the endzone, 5 int's from Testeverde, running out of gas in the 4Th QT against Neb, A bad call on a Cleveland Gary Fumble & just plain getting punked by Ala.+ getting the shaft and not getting to play Oakie in 2000, we could possibly could of had at least 10 ships in a 19 year period of time. Dam I long for the glory days!

LB

Not to mention the Ohio State game which caused me to destroy my old CRT...

Regular Joe

OGV isn't that something? Lopez gets fired from Floriduh because of not having CWS success and turns around and in a few short years wins it all at zona. Yet Sully has arguably the most talent in the nation (check how many got drafted and where) and cant even manage ONE win against a MAC powerhouse. This was probably their best chance ever to win it all.

It has to stick in your craw if you're a turd baseball fanboy. (cough, cough)

Fire Sully. lol

As for Mike Martin, his story is just sad and pathetic. Zero for a lifetime.

Associated Press

DALLAS -- A former Baylor basketball player is facing federal extortion charges for allegedly threatening to release "derogatory information" about Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

Richard Khamir Hurd's bond was set at $25,000 after his first appearance Monday in federal court in Waco, Texas.
A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Griffin, the Baylor quarterback who was the No. 2 overall draft choice of the Washington Redskins, was the target of the alleged extortion attempt. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because authorities had not disclosed the detail.

Court documents say Hurd contacted a representative from a St. Louis agency, threatening to publicize derogatory information about one of his clients unless he was paid a "substantial sum" of money. The representative is identified by the initials B.D.

Griffin's agent is St. Louis-based Ben Dogra, who didn't respond to messages Monday. The documents don't name Griffin.

AP Sports Writer Stephen Hawkins contributed to this report.

Hmmmm, I'm curious to know what kind of info Hurd had.

CoCane

^^^ Sounds like RG3 is a lil' "fruity". Lol!

The What

You can bet that every media outlet will be down in Waco investigating and trying to get the scoop on what it could be.

Ohio_Cane

Corey Long:

TAMPA, Fla. -- While it's not likely five-star defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III will make a decision before the new year, what he does in the next month could go a long way to figuring out his future.

Currently Hargreaves, who is No. 4 in the ESPN 150, says he's made no cuts but three schools stand out.

"I don't have a top group of schools but I'm favoring Miami, USF and Florida," Hargreaves said. "I have taken a few visits around the state, I just went back to Miami on Thursday and I feel good about those three schools right now."
