CaneRock...I have seen anything on him

He may be on the short side, but His athleticism,explosion, and long limbs are redeeming qualities. Here's the clip that me made me say SHEEZ! in my original post.

Just saw the video Ohio, what a damn shame passed away very young. The crazy thing is he walked off on his own and went to the hospital after where he started getting these other symptoms...

RBLCane

Three things, albeit of questionable importance but hopefully entertaining/useful nonetheless:

(1) Dan Marino's CBS lover is hot (and married!): http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/i/partypictures/07_06_09/15_6338242437274675002730204_32_DYounisCYounisNYounis_070309.jpg

http://www.heavy.com/regions/2013/01/donna-savattere-dan-marino-love-child-mother-facts/

(2) Sandwiched between Alex Collins' announcement and NSD is NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY at IHOP! Whether they're victory pancakes or "go to hell/we don't need you anyways/you're making the biggest mistake of your life" pancakes (in classic Canefanatic fashion lol), make sure you make your way over to IHOP for a free shortstack on Tuesday Feb. 5th! http://www.ihoppancakeday.com/

(3) Sometimes the world is TOO small in the sense that the dude formerly from the 49ers who allegedly raped the other dude is the brother of former Cane (and 5-star bust) Orien Harris (some of you probably already knew about this connection, but it was news to me): http://www.i4u.com/2013/01/kwame-harris/kwame-one-time-former-sauce-his-over-baller-ex-boyfriend-fade-harris

Final note: has there ever been a crazier start to a new year?!?!?!

GO CANES!!!

She's "hot", but Mrs.Feliciano...now She's STACKED!
I'll take "Cold Grits" ANY! day of the week.

herbieibis

Willie,
Sorry I haven't got back to you with my reply but I'll make this short and sweet. Talent wins Ships and if you follow the recruiting circuit, you'll see the teams with the most 4 & 5 star players are the teams winning the ships. Now some of those stars are going to be bust, it happens. It's a new age and it's just the facts. Eddie Johnson had a nice year but where was he at at the end of the year. Al had him on ice. Consistency, dog! We've had plenty of 1 year wonders. Show me some all ACC, type talent on the field, Like Duke did.I'll give you these names and you tell me what kind of talent do we have. Rodgers, Highsmith, Cain, Gaines, L. Robinson, Porter, Green, Armbrister, & Cornelius. These Guys have started at one time or another on defense. Where's the star power. Not even a 3RD team all ACC & Green had no sacks as a DE. He's a great story and he's a tough kid but for the most part these guys would be nothing more than descent back ups at your top schools. If this is being negative then the truth must hurt because you ain't watching the same games I was watching. I'm not loving these guys because it's a dam pity party, it's only results I'm looking for and we ain't winning nothing with a bunch mediocre players. You can love them all you want but it's the truth. You like 6'1 DT's, then I suggest you watch division 3 Football, because the last time I checked, we don't play no 3-4 and we have 4 that size. I like what Al is doing, I believe in him and I hope the pot at the end of this rainbow, is flowing with Bryant, Coley, Thomas, Kirkland, Collins, Edwards, Bostwick & Grace, that my friend is what I call a lot of talent.

LMAO!

UNC...Savattere is hot in a "suburban-type-put-olive oil on yo' turkey for Thanksgiving and just season it with salt-n-pepper type of way".

But Mrs.Feliciano...sh!!!!!T, now She's hot in a "just slap some margarine on that b!tch and sprinkle some a lot of that Lawrys seasoning on that mutheffa type of way".

And my orange and green shades work just fine THANK YOU! LMAO!

CoCane

Herb,

That is avery mediocre list. What makes your vision questionable is that you continue to mention Porter with those scrubs. Not just Golden, D'No & Franklin but even Kirk Herbstreit plus other notable analysts all agreed that Curtis Porter is the difference maker at DT they've been missing. He's had some bad roll of the dice injuries, so obviously there's no production if you don't play. I won't say he's all acc but he has that potential if healthy if people that really know the game says our Entire defensive production suffers when he's not on the field.

Bottom line you're entitled to your own opinion but I would never disrespect Porter but mentioning his talent & ability with the players that you grouped him with.

herbieibis

CoCane,
The dudes been here going on 5 years and yes he has been hurt and when he has played he's been descent but he hasn't been a game changer and he ain't sacking the QB, now if he supposedly makes everyone around him start playing better, so be it but we still coughed up over 400 yds a game, so you be the judge.

Ohio_Cane

Lol, Billy Corben is funny!

Billy Corben ‏@BillyCorben

@AKuperstein crediting @MiamiHerald with breaking Nevin Shapiro story is like praising a receiver for a SENSATIONAL catch! That he fumbled.

j.w.

Lots of debate here- thanks everyone, you made by 15 minute lunch "hour" fun. back to the "fun" . . .

CoCane

1st of all. Even the most dominant DT's usually don't get a lot of sacks. 2nd, he didn't come back until the 9th game of the season after HIS APPENDIX BURST. He didn't play in top condition. 3rd the run defense was much better when he came back. Lastly & the biggest point I was making. He's not as garbage as the other players you mentioned. PERIOD. They're career back ups. Porter would have started the last couple of seasons if healthy. And he's the best DT we have including Olson Pierre, that helped that D-line suck azz until Porter came back. I would say he's injury prone but you can't say his play is as bad as those guys you named. To be fair, I'll wait til I see him play next year to officially label him a difference maker. Can't really judge him until he's healthy for a full season.

Posted by: CoCane | January 31, 2013 at 03:32 PM
----------------------------------------

Have to completely agree with this. Vince Wilfork, all bias aside, has been one of the most dominant DT's EVER.

U know how many sacks he has for his career? 16

herbieibis

CoCane,
You're right about that, he is the best we got, which isn't saying much. You are also right about the dt's not getting to many sacks, but where does it say, in the rules that they can't put pressure on the QB? Last, our defense can't help but be better next year, another year stronger, another year wiser, plus we didn't lose anyone, except Mcgee.

LA3

And for all of the those that want to
BE part of the CANES family & tradition!

The "loved football" part was perhaps most important. Gore was a great example, as he came to Miami despite having to wait behind Portis and McGahee. Asked at Super Bowl media day Tuesday why he didn't shy away from that, Gore said, "Competition. If you want to be the best, you have to play with the best. I wasn't scared of competition."

Gore carried a football around campus in those days, held high and tight, because he knew his day would come. "He could care less about anything but school and football," says Mike Rumph, one of those 17 first-round picks. "Most guys are chasing girls, thinking about stuff at home. Not him. First day out to practice, most guys have special sleeves or new shoes. He's out there with no gloves. Just a jersey, shorts, and helmet. He was like Mike Tyson."

---------

"The toughest battle was Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday," says Schiano. "That's the thing I remember – the competition." Asked if it was as intense as the NFL, Schiano said: "In some ways even more so. At the U of Miami, we were trying to bring the program back. There was such a hunger there. That's one of the reasons they practiced so hard against each other."

Stacy Coley will announce at 11 a.m. on National Signing Day.

Interesting that he announces when Golden's NSD party on ESPN starts, huh?? HUH???

LOL

WWIN

Herb,

Thanks for responding. Although I asked you like 30 questions and you only answered 0. I like how you said you like what Golden is doing but you don't think he's going to close on signing day. So a 6'2 dt is better than a 6'1 dt?

WWIN

Herb,

Also it's a BIG DIFFERENCE between Golden's 2* & 3*'s vs Coker and Shannon's

Awesome article. Thx for the post LA3. Brought back some great memories. What a great feeling it was watching us come "back" '00-01. Cannot wait to have that feeling again!

Great work lately 86 and all U posters bringing the news. The articles have been as good as the hoops squad this off season! Seems like all kinds of things are looking up for The U these days! Now, if the baseball team can get thier act together...RIP Coach Fraser. Thank U.

herbieibis

Willie,
6'2 is closer to 6'3 than 6'1 is. What's the difference between Shannon's & Coker's 2's & 3's than Al's? What have Al's 2's & 3's done yet. That's not a fair question because Al's boy's haven't had time to mature yet. I guess the jury is still out.
I also hope Goldie is hooping & hollaring on NSD and you dam right, I do want them signed, sealed & delivered. Read on Canesport, what Gary Ferman said about recruiting. He must of stole my story from canespace yesterday because he's saying the same thing I said yesterday on here. We shouldn't be sitting here waiting on 8 or 9 guys to define our class, maybe 2 to 4 but not that many. Hop on over and read it.

Mcginns ale house

did Ira denson cancel his visit?

I'm not loving these guys because it's a dam pity party, it's only results I'm looking for and we ain't winning nothing with a bunch mediocre players.

Posted by: herbieibis | January 31, 2013 at 02:08 PM

I don't know if they're mediocre, but Alabama's D-Line wasn't exactly setting the PHUCKIN'! world on fire either.

herbieibis

Canerock,
They did win the ship. They did shut N.D. down.I beleive they were ranked #1 defensively, so what do we have in common with them?

WWIN

Herb,

According to you a smurf is 6'1 but a beast is 6'2???

Who have YOU PERSONALLY seen play in person????

Golden is a helluva lot better at recruiting and evaluating talent than Coker and Shannon. But which side are you on? Because I thought you said you liked what Golden is doing? But you just mentioning gary ferman, now I understand where you come up wit all this stuff now.

The Wizard

I just looked at the announcement schedule televised by ESPN. Stacey Coley is scheduled at 11:00 am. Makenzie Alexander is scheduled for 11:15 am. Canes are on from 11-12.
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM .............. ??????????????

DallasTX Cane

Stars are a funny thing... U don't need them to create a winning, successful program (see TCU, Boise, etc)... Having them is no guarantee of success (see TX or USC lately)... BUT, not having them seems to make winning the NC close to impossible these days (all the past 7 NCs had significant numbers of highly ranked classes and NFL caliber talent).

SOUP

New Port Richey to Winter Haven.

On my way back to the CCC.

Lead follow and get out of the way.

WWIN

herb,

you can't be on both sides of the fence dog pound. Sounds to me that you want Coker back, a coach that only looks at the stars

I will have to add that those last 7 NC's came against weak teams

The Wizard

Wow, Manny Navarro reporting that Denver Kirkland is "OUT OF THE PICTURE" !

semperfi_cane

Per John Bastian on twitter, Canes have informed Denver Kirkland that they no longer have a schollie available for him.

PlayaCane aka Rashad

Per Manny:


Guess I should have stuck around for the end of Booker T. Washington's state championship parade.

All-American offensive lineman Denver Kirkland confirmed Thursday night UM is no longer in the picture for him, just a couple of hours after saying he loved the coaches and the program.

What led to this surprising news? Kirkland said he had a private conversation with UM assistant coach Micheal Barrow and Booker T. head coach Tim "Ice" Harris following the parade in which they discussed an issue that came up with him going to UM.

Was it academics? "Yeah, it was an academic thing," Kirkland said.

Is it that you didn't have the grades or test score to get in? "No, not that," he said.

Is he upset? "No. I'm still going to play college football somewhere," he said.

Kirkland said his final four is now South Florida, Florida State, Ole Miss sand Arkansas.

HawaiiCane

How does it affect '6'? Also, how does he state is has to do with academic issues in the conversation, but not that he hasn't qualified. It's a confusing statement.

The Wizard

The train has left Denver Kirkland.

Ohio_Cane

Doesn't affect 6 whatsoever. From what it looks like, staff has known for a while.

semperfi_cane

I'm just hoping that the coaches have already been notified which players are picking the Canes, and the schollies just ran out. However, hope is certainly not a strategy.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Why we have to say no to Denver? Imo, let's just use Edwards scholly offer for Kirkland and make sure we keep a lineage with BTW, that is more important to me and majority of south florida canes fans. This is not gonna sit well with Six and future recruits coming out of that high school.

I know Coley likes the FB commit to syracuse but Edwards is not a big need, we have Dillard to play as fullback.

UMike

That might explain why Miami is making a late push for that FSU 4-Star OL committ...Well thats one down

Yes, this doesn't make sense, we don't have a scholly left for Kirkland and yet we have an FSU OL commit visiting us officially, something's up?

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I'm just about done with this recruiting cycle, it's frustrating to see how everything is unfolding.

Would very much love for us to compete nationally in recruiting, i'm not much of a stargazer but there is certain perception in a team that finishes up with big time recruits, i want that quality of perception to be back in coral gables, that's all!

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Very odd times. They, Miami, should've done this a while ago, not less than a week to signing day. Very very odd.

Funny how Denver's last tweet was 'Trust no one but God', i think there's more to this story, Denver done it the right way, we all wish for kids to do it the right way and not horse around with commitments, this kid waits and approaches everything with class, with less than a week he was told by coaches you have no spot. I think this is on our coaches and not him.
