WRONG I've never posted as another blogger And secondly the only thing I was ever negative about was coach NO d. I post once maybe twice a week if that and you call me a troll? Also I live in Jacksonville my IP address will state this. My comments where no more negative than anybody else's during NO D defensive mishaps but I'm troll? 86 you are dead wrong and you need to clear my name

86Cane

Then there was another Sinsiter who stole your name because the IP addy was the same for a "SinisterCane" and "BrevardCane" and a "Fan". I'm just saying that someone may have stolen your blog name? Anyway U are clear to continue under your current name and IP addy. Blog on!

Cola, your probably right,way to many tight ends. I heard one was to fast.one was to big and the other on only catches touchdowns and worse none of them know how to cook.Why do we keep recruiting these guys?

orange 'n green in the vein

Yeah, I'm going to have to call an, "unlikely," on Sinister being a troll, we exchanged some personal barbs this year when the defense was giving up its customary 400+ during one game here on the blog and he actually was the better blogger and apologized to me preemptively for getting personal with the insults, no internet troll in history has ever done that, unless they were suffering from trolls remorse, which he would have no reason to at that point. So I'm likely not to believe someone who would not only do that but then actually register and spend the time finding himself an avatar for his profile would be just a troll, too much investment for so little payoff and too mindful of blog etiquette to fit the shoe there.

McGinnis, the definition of deserved criticism; anyone who finishes in the bottom .975% of the rankings of their job(s) being mentioned as not being good at what they do.

Try to understand, if you're the bottom 1% or less on any measurement, being criticized for your poor performance isn't someone being cheap. It's like if I wrote the bottom 1% of the articles on here and there was demonstrable, numeric evidence showing that fact, people who said I wrote bad articles wouldn't be cheap-shooting my abilities, they'd have a valid point and 86 would be wise to send me on my way to some other blog about Philly college football to exhibit my incompetence there instead of stinking up a prestigious fan blog like this one with my atrociously subpar performances week in and week out. If you had a bartender that constantly made the wrong drink over 99% of the time and clients kept telling you that they needed to be let go no matter how many fun hours you had in your spare time with them away from work for however many eons you'd known them for, they'd have a fair point if every time they ordered a Hurricane for themselves and a Red Death for their date they got 12 virgin blueberry daiquiris instead. There's no cheapshotting a history of incompetence when you mention how poor the performance is, no matter what color you print your manifesto up in when you go in for your employment interview.

But I digress. My point remains, Jim Larranaga much, much > the mutants from Philly and worth the money spent on him and then some. That same equation goes for Jim Morris too BTW. Maybe UM should hire a Jim to coach football and actually fix things when D'No screws up the 2013 season against UF and gets nuked by their horrible offense next year to lose any chance at the Broyles award before the first month is over?

What I posted was a FACT. How was I to know that there would be TWO SinsterCanes? LOL

86Cane

OGV says: "McGinnis, the definition of deserved criticism; anyone who finishes in the bottom .975% of the rankings of their job being mentioned as not being good at what they do."

I say: Yeah but did U account for the fact that the sun was in his eyes and the wind was against him? Yeah, I didn't think so!

86Cane

OGV...I gotta say I am IMPRESSED with coach L and the UM basketball team so far this season. But it is still early and Big Reg still needs to improve his effort and consistency if Miami is to do soame damage in the ACC. The Canes appear to have the size and skill needed to make it happen this year if things go right (no injuries).

86 HAS A HAIR TRIGGER!!! LOL

herbieibis

So we got Sandlin, Great!One leaves and one comes. Who's the next TE's we're after, Oh Yeah Vandenburg & Wozniak, is there anybody else? Can we move on from this position of epic preportion and get some real help, where help is REALLY NEEDED!

86Cane

Zilla...do NOT test it! LOL

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question:

Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

OGV,

Sorry Kirby I have to take back the cred I gave you last night for hiring Coach L, but you did good on hiring Coach Golden.

Were you saying this last year about the basketball team??

WWIN

86,

You say it's 1 million high school football players. So in other words you are saying it's no way in HELL recruiting sites can evaluate all these players so star ratings can never be accurate??

HAHAHAHAHAAHAH DIRTY TOM

WITH MORE DETAILS FROM UM VIA EMAIL:

Beau Sandland, the nation’s top-ranked junior college tight end, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Miami, head coach Al Golden announced Wednesday.

The 6-foot-6, 250-pound tight end from Pierce College (Calif.) is ranked the No. 6 overall junior college player nationally and No.1 tight end prospect by 247Sports.com. He is also the No. 2 junior college tight end and No. 12 overall recruit in the ESPN Junior College 100. In eight games as a sophomore in 2012, Sandland caught 24 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns en route to first-team All-Pacific Conference honors. As a freshman in 2011, he recorded 20 catches for 265 yards and two scores.

In November, Sandland helped guide the Brahmas to a Patriotic Bowl win, a 37-34 double-overtime victory over Mt. San Jacinto College. He played for head coach Efrain Martinez at Pierce College.

86Cane

WWIN...what I'm saying is that local folks like Larry Blustein usually know most about these players and more than the National guys who watch a few highlite tapes.

Everybody, even RaizeCane, looks good in a highlite tape. I'm jus sayin.

semperfi_cane

I think some of toy are missing the point with all these TE recruits. The coaches said earlier in the season they wanted to imitate what the Patriots have done with their tight ends. They are already set with what should be one of the best receiving corps and offensive lines in the country. Duke's presence alone makes the rb position the strength of the offense. Steven Morris proved last year that he can run a quick strike offense and should only improve with his first full season as a starter under his belt. So now, if you can add two legitimate receiving threats at TE who can also block, you create a dilemma for any defense they face. Line up in a spread or a single back set with these guys and read the defense in dime coverage? Morris audibles, brings the TE in, and the TE is blocking a 175 lb slot corner for Duke. If they line up in a base d, now a lb has to cover these TEs and/or Duke out of the backfield. And the redzone offense becomes a huge problem for any defense facing it. IMO, Fisch and Golden see the TE position as the key to making this offense unstoppable next year.

86Cane

There really is no need to evaluate all 1 million HS players only about 10,000 of the TOP players each year.

Since nobody bit and answered my previous question then I will answer it myself:

If there are 121 D-1 schools and each school signs the maximum of 25 recruits allowed by the NCAA then that means only 3,025 players will be signed BY MAJOR COLLEGES in an average year.

3,000 out of 1 million?

U BETTER HAVE A PLAN B!

With a stable of reliable tight ends our offense will be VERY powerful next year.

And if our defense - and especially the D-Line - improves, the U should be NUMBER ONE in the ACC.

semperfi_cane:

AHRRRR!!

LB

If we get a tight end threat, UM is a top 15 offense. Period.

WWIN

The way our offense is shaping up I don't think we need a defense next year

semperfi_cane

As far as the defense is concerned, I think that next year, Bush alone limits completions down the seam and across the middle with the types of vicious hits he executed with regularity this past season. You add 15 lbs to that kid, with the type of range he has, and he is a legitimate all-American candidate. You also have to think that with players like McCord and Bond coming off the edge, completion percentages will drop for opposing offenses. My opinion is that Dnofrio's vision is to line up in a true 3-4 defense more often next year, with Chick and Green setting the edges as DEs, freeing up UMs athletic OLBs to make more of an impact behind the line of scrimmage on both running and passing plays. This is where I feel Matthew Thomas is critical. He would seem to be the kind of playmaker that even as a freshman, could come in situationally and help the team. However, the glaring problem with this, as every Canes fan knows, is the lack of a dominant interior presence that is necessary for the 3-4 to work. Hopefully, Porter can play this role to some degree. If not, fans better hope for some serious development by one of the young dts who came in last year (or maybe Grimble plays up to his potential after virtually disappearing last year). I also think Howard and Gunther come up bigger next year with a full year of experience under their belt, but the safety position opposite Bush is still unsettled. In the final analysis, although I question coach D as much as anyone, I think I see his vision, but next year will be make or break for him. With the firepower the offense has coming back, I think a serviceable defense (ranked in the top 40 or above in yards and points), is enough for UM to win the ACC.

Ya know, as I'm watching all of this Notre Dame BS, I'm reminded that Louis Nix SHOULD have been a Cane.

We offered him, (and he accepted), when he was down and out with a bum knee that nobody felt comfortable about... Then, he gets healthy and dumps us for the Irish.

Can you imagine him on OUR D-Line? (Even D'No would have a tough time screwing that up!)


By the way... best quote of the day so far... came from OGV: "Yeah, I'm going to have to call an, "unlikely," on Sinister being a troll, we exchanged some personal barbs this year when the defense was giving up its customary 400+ during one game here on the blog and he actually was the better blogger and apologized to me preemptively for getting personal with the insults, no internet troll in history has ever done that, unless they were suffering from trolls remorse, which he would have no reason to at that point."

"suffering from troll's remorse" You KEELLING me man! LMAO!

herbieibis

It's all well and good if they throw the ball to the TE's more than 3 or 4 times a game and something besides a 5 to 7 yd pass.Our TE's used to be good for 6 to 7 catches agmes for 50 to 70 yds.
We probably do need to go to a 3-4 defense and if that's the case, we got enough short squatty guys to handle the middle, if they'd grow a pair. Next we'll have to bring in a few more LB's. We really haven't had a solid guy in the middle since Vilma left or a solid guy up front since Wilfork left. We need to be more than servicable on defense. We need to get the rush defense somewhere in the 100-120 range and have 30-35 sacks to satisfy me.

WWIN

roach,

i thought we parted ways with Nix and stopped recruiting him???

Defense?

Or do U mean a time out break for the offense?

semperfi_cane


Posted by: herbieibis | December 19, 2012 at 04:53 PM

I absolutely agree that the defense needs to become dominant again, I just don't see that kind of a jump after the debacle last year. I expect less mental breakdowns next year with better fundamentals (i.e. bad tackling angles like the ones Telemaque took for four years), and more plays that impact the outcome of the game (i.e. big sacks on third down instead of blown coverages that keep drives alive). I think that if they can manage those incremental improvements, it will be enough to propel the team to the top of the ACC, with an eye on 2014 for the defense to become a feared unit once again.

Hey, I thought U wanted to talk about kickers and punters? What happened???

herbieibis

We are 2 to 3 players away on defense to be formidable. More like three. One more guy in the secondary, one up front, and one in the middle.

roach- could be remembering it wrong, but I think Randy Shannon stopped recruiting Nix. Several self-proclaimed recruiting experts thought it was a good idea at the time. I thought it was pretty strange, even not knowing anything about Nix that we would not recruit a kid at a need position who had the size and actually wanted to be a Cane.

86Cane

1. One more guy in the secondary.
2. One up front.
3. One in the middle.

Posted by: herbieibis | December 19, 2012 at 05:14 PM

1. Look for Rayshawn Jenkins to play next to Bush and be that guy. He will be much better in year two. He was not quite ready last year. The coaches LOVE him. And don't forget about CB Burns and S Carter coming in this year.

2. Not sure.

3. LB Raphael Kirby or LB Gionni Paul could be "That Guy". Or freshman LB Matthew Thomas could be that guy although he might need a year or two of UTough before he becomes da man.

semperfi_cane

I love the fact that guys like DP and Bush make receivers think twice about laying out for a reception, knowing that those guys are headhunting out there. That kind of ferocity, combined with a legitimate pass rush, will stop all these marginal qbs from looking like Tom Brady when we play them. However, Howard's development is another key to this since almost every dominant defense has a lockdown corner who can take away a third of the field from opponents. But again, without at least one dominant d-lineman, and stiffer resistance up the middle, none of that will matter.

Seems like we've been competing with Nebraska and ASU for some recruits. Sandland,Johnson (decommit), and Bond come to mind.

herbieibis

Yeah 86' would do need a punter and I don't see M. Thomas playing in the middle, so it's Paul or Kirby and Paul couldn't cover anyone in pass coverage.
Ohio, that's what I'm talking about size wise. Now is the Dude strong or is he a pillow case?
