IT'S GREAT TO BE A HURRICANE!!!

myndraize


Either way is fine with me. Snagging a 6'3 240lb 4-star LB out of DC would be amazing lol

Posted by: UMike | January 24, 2013 at 11:41 AM

That would be great considering miami has missed on the last few top guys out of DC

CoCane

Ok. Last night was amazing. The day after, here's what's on my mind about the hoops team.

WTF are they going to do next year???

Bishop Daniels left the team. Johnson, Kadji, Gamble, Scott & McKinney-Jones are all seniors & will be gone.

The returning players are:

PG Shane Larkin JR
SG Rion Brown SR
G/F Garrius Adams SR(out for the year & probably will get a redshirt)
SF Eric Swoops SR
PF Rafael Akpejiori SR
C Tonye Jekiri SO

That's only 6 scholarship players returning. That means Larranaga needs 6 recruits. He only has 2 so far. They are:

6'6 G/F Javon Reed
6'2 G Deandre Burnette

As of now, Larkin & Brown are going to have drop 20 points per game each for them to be formidable next year...

Where is he going to get 4 more quality recruits from this late in the hoops recruiting season???

UMike

CoCane..since I am not abig college hoops fan, I am just going to try and enjoy THIS season lol...and a year like this could go a long way in recruiting.

Had me searching. Well played lol

kenyon19ypr

I HATE YOU. I can't explain how fast I dropped everything and went to the search bar. You have officially ruined my day UpNorth haha

UpNorthCane27

Lol sorry Ohio figured someone would fall for it.....

But no seriously i have a feeling the young man is coming to the U.... Character issues were a big ? but i think with his coach being a cane he probably realized being a thug on the streets isn't going to get you very far, on the other hand being a thug on the football field for UM will get you into the NFL!!!

UpNorthCane27

LOL sorry kenyon just wanted to be an insider for once in my life lolll

canezilla

DONT WORRY UPNORTH.U ARE A INSIDER IN MY BOOK

j.w.

Good morning, and today is an even better day to be a Cane! CGNC- don't disagree with you about the letter, hoping that everyone who says it was more politically motivated than real is right.

j.w.

FSUnconquered ‏@FSUnconquered
Apparently "sources" say Coley has accepted the OC position at Miami now, leaving FSU 2 weeks before NSD to go to a rival. #deadtome

Take it for what its worth.

JW - we will never know the true intent of banning former players (who are under no obligation of the NCAA) from the school\practice whatever else. Anyway, hope your riding is doing well. Its addictive isn't it?

Da U N Houston

Coley = Coley!

UMike

Now..does Colely have to go the his old FSU recruits and tell them all he said about Miami was wrong? lol

Yes, it is- good to finally be on the blog at the same time! Abt the letter- now would be the right time to rescind it. :)

Da U N Houston

So did Coley leave FIU to go to FSU or was he asked to leave? Just seeing if anyone knows the relationship with Super Mario? I Am guessing it was good since they'll be working together again, but isn't he "Coley" being the OC and Mario being the T.E. coach a demotion in a sense for Mario? Or does the Assistant Head Coach title cover that? I'm confused! Happy, but confused!

RBLCane

So, sure: the NCAA looks really bad here.

But the person who's really, really screwed here seems to be Shapiro's lawyer. Taking fees from two clients with actual conflicting interests is an ethical conflict that neither client can waive. Maybe (maybe!) the interests of Nevin Shapiro's bankruptcy estate were not in actual conflict with the NCAA's interests, because the NCAA has no enforcement power over Shapiro. But still, the lawyer needs to be really, really careful to get informed consent in this kind of situation from both clients.

I won't be surprised to read of disciplinary action in Ms. Perez's future.

Posted by: dj moonbat | January 24, 2013 at 01:26 PM

Didn't it say somewhere in one of the articles that Perez also brought NCAA goons along when doing a deposition on the bankruptcy case? I can't even begin to name what that crime is...Fraud? Abuse of privileges? Misrepresentation?

I am sure the Bar is going to come down hard on an lawyer who is involved in that shenanigan!

Ohio_Cane

Where in the world is 86 during this madness!?!? LOL

Old Skool

86 is probably on the road eating barbecue and boiled peanuts in some Godforsaken place like Waldo.

WWIN

CGNC,

I think people got letters from DS mixed up. You are talking about the letter she sent to the former players right? They are talking about the letter she sent to the ncaa

Old Skool

Great news about Coley. I'd love to know the other person who was offered the job. Probably the next OC at FSU

WWIN

Skool, sounds like it was McDonald

Great news about Coley. I'd love to know the other person who was offered the job.

1 - I honestly didn't know the other. Only knew Coley, but that there were 2 left in the running.

2 - Wouldn't surprise me lol

UpNorthCane27

Guys when i said Coley i meant James Coley... lmao ;-).....

orange 'n green in the vein

Coke, Jekiri looks like he's going to be pretty good, love his defensive awareness right now as a freshman, he always sees both ball and his man down there and he is very active for a 7 footer with his feet.

As for the 6 scollys, a few are probably NCAA casualties, Pee Wee testimony thrown out by the NCAA or not, and then from there, we're just going to have to trust The Pimp to find some quality additions to his rotation and keep coaching at the top of the profession to cover the inexperience under his purview. I know he picked up a highly regarded verbal a few weeks ago from what I want to say was a shooting guard, but I'm too lazy to go search for it since I'm still savoring that awesome moment where you finally stand up the neighborhood bully, kick him in the nuts, punch him in the face 27 times in a row, drop him to the pavement with a broken nose and bloody lip, spit on him and tell him things are going to be different around here from now between me and you, or else it'll be worse next time while he watches his own blood stream to the ground.

It's so satisfying a moment that not even a greenhorn, underachieving OC hire to replace the best one UM's had since Chud can't dull my shine today! Hope we're all ready for a lot of shotgun speed option calls on 3rd and 4 or less everybody!

Schweaty Balls

I haven't posted in a while under my old handle (MattInNY) and I needed to switch it up.

Great, great news on Coley! This is an outstanding hire.

How is this going to effect Kirkland and the other Coley?

dj moonbat

Posted by: calGary Cane | January 24, 2013 at 01:36 PM


Yeah, I read that an NCAA guy was sitting in the depo, Sean Allan asked to have the guy shown out, he was, and Perez then proceeded to ask Allan a whole lot of questions about NCAA-related stuff having nothing to do with the bankruptcy.

I think the basic contours of what Allan said in that depo have been known for a while, but AFAIK, the information that the NCAA PAID her to ask all these questions was new.

Certainly, failing to disclose to the depo's attendees that she was representing Shapiro's bankruptcy estate AND the NCAA would be very bad form. Whether it rises to the level of fraud, I dunno. Maybe. There's probably federal case law on stuff like that which Im unfamiliar with.
