I hope I am wrong, but I think Collins goes to Arkansas. Something about his coach/mentor/adoptive father and his relationship with the Arkansas coaches just doesnt give me a good vibe. I also think we loose out on Bostwick and Keef. BUT, we get Matthews, Grace, Kirkland, Coley a couple others...imo of course.

UMike

^^^ I mean Matthew Thomas, not "matthews" lol

UMike

This may change in a day or two..but here are some of my predictions...

Matthew Thomas - Miami
Denver Kirkland - Miami
J. Grace. - Miami
Stacey Coley - Miami
Edwards - Miami
Bryant - FSU
Collins - Arkansas
Bostwick - Florida
Cunningham - Stanford

UMike,

If Collins goes to Arkansas, he will be the 2013 version of Jacoby Brissett. Basically going to the wrong school for the wrong reasons and passing up the opportunity to play almost immediately. If Collins wants to play now, have a great situation and he has thought this through he goes to Miami...period.

Boy, this is as dumb as you can get. Play for San Fran and dis gays. That's right up there with Ozzie praising Fidel in Miami.

"I don't do the gay guys man," said Culliver (per Yahoo! Sports). "I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.

"Can't be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can't be…in the locker room man. Nah."

Old Skool

Uh that's DB Chris Culliver speaking. He's madly trying to find reverse gear right now.

I agree..although he may have a little more success than Brissett.

Why would ANYONE from FLORIDA want to play for ARKANSAS?
Why would ANYONE from ANYWHERE want to play for ARKANSAS?

I just don't get it!

I feel the same way..BUT kids from Florida leave for SEC schools, Louisville, Clemson etc every year.

Ohio_Cane

Reading Golden, Coley, Cristobal, and Barrow will be doing the final in-home with 6 tomorrow night.

Great news.

Reading Jimbo will be there earlier in the day. More great news. Golden can dispell whatever crap Jimbo just left behind.

Reading Jimbo will be hiding in a closet until Golden leaves.

Schweaty Balls

Jimbo is a man on an island with a horrible first name.

UMike

I just read that Arkansas had an in home visit with Collins Tuesday, but offered another RB Wednesday..could be good sign if true

UMike

A former Arkansas assistant coach once told Osceola (Ark.) running back Korliss Marshall, "I want to recruit you. You're good enough to play in the SEC. Give me a reason to recruit you."

Over the last year or so, Marshall has been working on giving teams a reason. He dedicated himself to becoming a better student, a better teammate and an overall better person. That hard work paid off on Wednesday when Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema told him the home state Razorbacks were ready to extend an offer...

UMike

Arkansas has no other RB commits..so it may not mean anything at all.

Ohio_Cane

UMike, Ark is going hard after Altee Tenpenny, unless they're recruiting him for a different position.

Actually, 4/6 "experts" are picking him to Ark over Bama

UMike

LSU and Michigan both have 16 4-Star recruits..that is a lot lol

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 31, 2013 at 11:22 AM

He has been a Bama commit for over a year..nut Arkansas had their visit after Bama..but it doesnt mean they dont want 2-3 RB's this class

UMike

Marshall is a 3-star RB currently committed to Central Arkansas..Arkansas is his only major offer..I bet he bites lol

orange 'n green in the vein

/\/\/\

Yeah but a lot of those are the result of the combination of a healthy dose of dear antler extract spray and affiliated fan subscription numbers so they don't really mean that much when you take those two factors into consideration UMike.

Not yet. House going back on the market next month though. Fingers crossed

RL

NEW ORLEANS – Six-foot-eight-inch Bryant McKinnie, towering above everyone else in the Superdome, smiled and shared a joke about his old college team.
"We used to say if one of us didn't get to the Super Bowl," the former Miami Hurricane and current Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman said Tuesday, "we'd all take a pay cut and play for the Dolphins."
No need for that plan now. McKinnie and his Ravens teammate Ed Reed, another former 'Cane, will both play in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday. So will Frank Gore, for the San Francisco 49ers. They were all on the same 2001 Miami Hurricanes roster that many consider the best collection of college talent of all time. And they are all stars.
In a league where the average career lasts four years, these three former college teammates continue to dominate more than a decade later.
And they're hardly alone.

This right here is well done by David Kenyon, who's a poster on this blog, just FYI:

Thanks Ohio!
And by the way, I was inspired and had the idea to write about this one because of what I've seen on this board.
I don't post as much as you guys because I like to see everything Miami fans are talking about. I'll throw in my two cents once in a while, but trust me guys, I have read every comment since I met 86.
Appreciate all the help and if any of you have an idea that you want to see written about, just comment here on CS or tweet at me.
Appreciate it guys!

UMike

86...I say we play a game, like our "Legends of the Fall" with recruiting predictions. List 5-10 targets and whoever wants to play just predicts where they will go. The person with the most right wins something..or just bragging rights lol

Something interesting I found out in a journalism class today. I met a kid who loves The U and played with both Duke Johnson and Allen Hurns in high school at Norland and Carol City.

UpNorthCane27

Now that the alexander twins are not a package deal... Do you think the better twin ends up at Miami as a surprise committment??? Ohio whats the word on that

Ohio_Cane

UpNorth, highly doubtful either Alexander comes. Barring a miracle, that is.

UMike

No way..Miami has been out of it with Alexander for a while now.

UpNorthCane27

Im just saying crazier things have happened in the world of recruiting............

UMike

UpNorth..you never know..just my opinion

j.w.

Good day, everyone. Anything new out there? :)

UMike

Great article about The U and the Super Bowl..

SHEEZ!
Ohio_Cane, what do you know about George Williams out of Hialeah?

Ohio_Cane

I'll tell U what, call me biased, call me an Al Golden homer, call me whatever U want, I think Golden is actually orchestrating a huge marketing ploy for UM on NSD.

Take from this what U will:

We have 9 guys that COULD pick us. 8 of them are announcing on NSD, on live TV, on one of the major networks (ESPN and ESPNU)

The other 1 out of those 9 (Collins) is announcing on Fox Sports up in Atlanta.

Add to that, Golden set up live coverage with ESPN from 11-12:30 (right in the heart of NSD)

I may be wrong, but I think Golden KNOWS this is going to be a HUGE day for UM, and is planning it to work out to show the country what he's building.

UMike

Williams is a 3-star guy..kinda short at 5'11. He has a Miami offer (not sure if its a "committable" offer) along with plenty of other big names. Florida and FSU have NOT offered..although Im surprised FSU didnt once Miami did lol

Ohio_Cane

Ohio_Cane, what do you know about George Williams out of Hialeah?

Posted by: CaneRock | January 31, 2013 at 01:00 PM
-----------------------------------------

Not a lot, really regarding recruiting. Hasn't been on any of UM's radars for a while, from what I've read.

He has an offer, but not sure if it's committable or not. Haven't heard his name in months.

UMike

Ohio..I definitely think we get some of our targets otherwise Golden would never go live, can you imagine how that would hurt to be live and get rejected over and over? I dont think we get them all, as I said earlier, but no doubt Golden knows something.

Ohio_Cane

Beat me to that Williams response, UMike. Lol, nice

UMike

Ohio..from what I understand that Hialeah team will be loaded next year with a couple UM targets

UMike

Ohio, I am counting on you Wednesday lol..I will be working at wont have access to a tv or live feed.

CaneRock

Thanks UMike and OC.
But MAN!, lookin' at His YT stuff, no way in HELL! that boy's a 3 star.
Kid reminds me of Denzel.

UMike

CaneRock...I have seen anything on him, BUT I do know, or think, Golden went into this year thinking he would have a very small, very specific class and that left a lot of worthy guys on the outside looking in. If the kid had a couple more offers from some big boys he might be a 4-star. Hes height might hurt him also in that regard.

Dam Doping, Daliances and Shapiro ...
sports news seems to be about everything but competition.

Here's the latest bombshell: Dan Marino pulled a QB sneak off the field and scored ... He's got a 7 year old daughter with a former production assistant at CBS Sports’. Apparently, Dashing Dan spent his spare time calling more than Maroone.

I read that as of right now Collins announcement wont be shown live in South Florida. Since I am only 2 hours from Atlanta, I should be able to see. He will announce on same show as Foster.
