I'm still bitter UpNorth. You have 12 days before I'm un-bitter haha...

Anyway, I'm late to the party again, but Coley! Guys, this is huge! The State of Miami is on its way back. No top recruit can even think about leaving South Florida, and if they do, well we have reach all over the state now. I can't wait for Collins and Kirkland to announce and then NSD. I'll be around all day then too and can't wait to celebrate some new Cane commitments with you guys.

What I'm hearing about this year though is that Coley coming to Miami won't have as big an impact as expected--but I wouldn't be surprised to see that change slightly.

And Michael Parker- he's a ESPN300 athlete, I don't think we've talked about him much. What do you guys think of him? He'll likely be a late addition because he's not choosing until March/April, but we're in his top two.

I saw a LB play from Booker T. whose last name was Thomas. I know he was being recruited by Coley be had not visited UM. Anyon have any opinions if this guy will be a cane?

We had heard about Parker some time ago from one of our sources. Said Miami was recruiting him hard but seems to have backed off some? Not sure but I will check.

I mentioned his name here a few months ago but nothing lately. Do I have it right that he is a big safety from VA?

UPNorth good stuff can you please use your 6th sense to get me some winning lotto numbers for an up coming lotto. Hey btw who on the blog is a member of the hurricane club?

Posted by: Hassan | January 25, 2013 at 01:04 PM

Anyone who is fan of the Miami Hurricanes should pony up some dough to the Hurricane Club. I have been giving since 1999, about 500 a year, and I didn't even go to the school.

Nothing to see there LB in regards to AQM, if he visits its out of respect to NJ and his coach... The kid is all UM

Matthew Thomas: What a difference a day makes? With the move of offensive coordinator James Coley from Florida State to Miami, it makes the Hurricanes the team to beat. No coach has spent more time recruiting Thomas over the past two seasons than Coley. Florida State is supposed to host Thomas on his official visit this week and the 'Noles staff will be scrambling to replace the relationship Thomas has with Coley. I'm not ready to completely pencil in Thomas as a member of the Hurricanes' recruiting class -- because the five-star OLB has said that he's very close with FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher -- but with his two favorite assistants (Coley and Miami defensive coordinator Michael Barrow) in the same place, that appears like a lot to overcome.

Georgia and Alabama remain on the board because of the scheduled visits, but this is an FSU-Miami battle until the end. Thomas took a visit to USC over the weekend but according to a source he called Miami and FSU coaches during the visit to tell them how the trip was going. Also Thomas wants a stable coaching situation, and nothing about USC's current situation can be considered stable.

86 I'm always "lurking"! I get so burned out by the end of the season that I have to shut down the blogging for a few weeks.
But when we have a week like the week we are currently having I just have to get in here and be a part of it!!
I like the Brock Berlin reference above because I don't think I've been this giddy about the 'canes since we beat the crocs that night! I was invited to a "Gator" party that night so the entire party could laugh at me when the 'canes lost! We know how that turned out!

Go 'canes!

Wow! CBS Sports has Miami as 2 seed in their projected tournament rankings.

Why is everyone on Skai Moore? he is good yeah but come on, if you are on a SFLA LB/Rush End that is undervalued if should be Lance Virgile. He was just selected to play in the "international bowl"
He is literally ALL WORLD and balled at St Thomas, he had the game sealing INT for St Thomas in the Championship game and had 10 sacks.


2nd point is that you guys see kids as "projects" the staff see kids as "athletes" I have made a point before and i will again, this staff loves 6'4 ish long guys that can run. We are going to play a lot of 3-4 and You get these kids who are not polished you RS them and put weight on them and them turn them lose. Trust me in 2-3 years when you see these "projects" as RS Soph and RS JR's you will see a long fast team terrorizing QB's. Go down the list of 6'4ish long athletic guys the staff targets for LB/Rush End.

This new offer out i posted is a 6'4 kid, he plays basketball, he dad is 6'8 and he is only 17 is expected to grow. He would RS and put on weight.

Props to Lamont Green, great straight forward answer with no BS.

Thanks to all for the canes info... I watched the Duke game and was so proud of this team. Not since Barry, Cornutt and a few others have I rooted so hard for canes BB
I lost my computer for 2 weeks and in 1 day have caught up with the articles my eyes are tired. Again thanks all for you guys do to keep the fires burning
BTW it was a gator who finally diagnosed and fixed my computer. Bad Boys computers in Orange city. (It was a shorted memory stick.)

How do you know its been bad? I guess only the real fans give money when times are down.

LB

"How do you know its been bad? I guess only the real fans give money when times are down."

That's nonsense.

I argue that real fans withhold their dispensable income when their team stinks, and force the powers that be to either change... or lose money. That's how fans have tangible control over their team. Why did Donna Shalala fire Randy Shannon? See the empty seats at the USF game and the numerous threats of withdrawing financial support if Shannon wasn't fired.

"Real fans" are overrated words.

I prefer "smart fans."

That's how we got Golden. It's all about the green. Influence the green, influence the team.

If you are a supporter of the program, any program for that matter, you will give money regardless of what happens on the field. When you pick and choose and only support when times are good, there is another fan type for people like that, and they are called fair weather fans. Its comments like that why Miami is labeled one of the worst sports town's in America.

NY Trooper

I would hope a strong fan base that also gives financial support would assist in making moves like hiring an OC like Coley, and his bump in salary of $110,000, happen.

Schweaty Balls

Agreed NYT. Only a strong fan base, who support the program through thick and thin regardless of the play on the field, can survive.

Unlike the fair weather comments above from LB, its the fans and supporters of the program that allow the Coley types of moves to take place. It angers me to no end when I read crap like that from people.

CaneRock

We BETTER! not be runnin' no 3-4.
Hell, GT had prototype DLmen and LBs, and Al Groh still got fired.
Besides, 3-4 DLmen just aren't native to Dade County, so we don't even need to be trying to fit that square peg into that round hole.

I see the U has offered Justin Madison 6'4 205 olb/rush-end out of Tampa i believe Cristabol was recruting him,also a b-ball player

LB

"If you are a supporter of the program, any program for that matter, you will give money regardless of what happens on the field. When you pick and choose and only support when times are good, there is another fan type for people like that."

That doesn't make sense, and it doesn't translate into effectiveness. You're terming "fair weather fans" like it's a bad thing. Why do you think Yankee fans get so many rings? You may fall into the Joe Rose diehard crowd, but eventually it looks foolish defending Randy Shannon after he gets waxed for his sixth loss of the year.

In fact, it's counter-productive. True-believerism is naive. I too suffered through the foul stench of the 48-0 beating of the last game of the Orange Bowl. Televised. Stunk. No bowl wins since 2006.

What if someone fundamentally disagrees with the direction of the said program? Would you go to the grocery store and buy old meat? Would you vote in an election for someone you know is corrupt and quite possibly harmful to your core values (Golden pop) even if they were your own political party?

I'm not from Florida, but I love the Canes. I grew up loving them, and I could care less about the other teams. I love the Canes. Love them. I want them to win the title every year. However, I'm discerning enough to realize that do so requires the correct set of circumstances. The only way fans influence the decision makers is through money.

Of course it sounds cold and terrible, but that's what sports is. Sports is entertainment. Take it from a parallel angle: Batman Begins made a profit, hence you get The Dark Knight. Green Lantern failed, and that's why WB is hesitant to give it a sequel.

That's the point. People influence entertainment. Are you telling me you'll waste your money on a "lost ship?" Come on.

I'll take good coaching and a chance to compete (Golden's Miami) over a consistently mediocre football program (Duke).

LB

Even if I don't agree with the previous posters, this is really interesting conversation. Much more deep than most of the nonsense out there. Personal, intellectual, philosophical, and cool.

That's why CaneSpace is the place to be.

Same sentiment here but for different reasons than non-native to Dade linemen.

With the majority of spread principle zone read offensive teams UM faces year in and out, I'd rather see a return to the '83 team's 5-2 than see a 3-4 in the first place, in the second place, 4-3 puts more pressure on an offense from a schematic point of view than a 3-4, which is employing blitz calls from certain parts of the passing targets field of play as their way of generating pressure by comparison.

Finally, all this doesn't matter because a team that's rangy and can pressure the QB won't do it when your scheme is asking linemen to just eat space to free up your players who are vacating passing lanes to generate pressure because if the lineman is only being asked to eat space and not pressure the QB, why would the OL blocking him not disengage to occupy your blitzing LB instead of not having to stop the pocket from collapsing?

Off to watch Cooley play calls from his horrible (even worse than Fisch at the Gophers!) year of coordinating to remind myself why this year's team is going to come up short in the division. When a team that got lapped by the Turds thinks you're doing something right, there's a major red flag flying over where you're treading.

I would like to add my 2 cents on Michael Parker..The way i see it he quit his football team to work on his grades which was not good enough to get in the U where he and his mom wants him to be. Now he might not make it in,but wanting to concentrate on his academics should be something we commend him for.I don't know anything about him not wanting to get hurt,if anyone knows better school me i'm hoping the coaches give him another look.

Via Canesinsight board:

Some really cool stuff for recruitniks (i.e. Canespace until football season)...

"The ‘Canes found themselves in fierce recruiting battles with many from their own backyard like running back Alex Collins (South Plantation), wide receiver Stacy Coley (Oakland Park Northeast), offensive lineman Denver Kirkland (Booker. T. Washington), linebacker Matthew Thomas (Booker T. Washington), and defensive tackles Jaynard Bostwick (Port St. Lucie, Fla./St. Lucie West Centenniel) and Keith Bryant (Delray Beach, Fla./Atlantic).

You can bet that Coley and Cristobal certainly gives the edge to Miami now with many of that group above.

Looking ahead, it’s an absolutely loaded 2014 class in south Florida next season. Virtually every top positional recruit from the Sunshine State will be from south Florida (Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties) like running back Sony Michel (Plantation, Fla./American Heritage), wide receiver Ermon Lane (Homestead, Fla.), tight end Ravian Pierce (Plantation, Fla.), offensive lineman K.C. McDermott (Wellington, Fla./Palm Beach Central), defensive end Chad Thomas (Miami, Fla./Booker T. Washignton), defensive tackle Khairi Clark (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade Madonna), cornerback Nigel Patton (Miami, Fla./Booker T. Washington), and safety Quincy Wilson (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./University School).

Then you have incredible athletes like Treon Harris (Miami, Fla./Booker T. Washington) and Quinton Flowers (Miami, Fla./Jackson) who can play multiple positions and could be the two most versatile players in the state next season.

And I haven’t even mentioned standout players like running backs Joseph Yearby (Miami, Fla./Central) and Dalvin Cook (Miami, Fla./Central), offensive tackle Trevor Darling (Miami, Fla./Central), defensive tackle Trevonte Valentine (Palm Bay, Fla./Bayside) and wide receiver Jacob McCrary (Miami, Fla./Coral Reef) and Corey Holmes (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas)."

"I would like to add my 2 cents on Michael Parker..The way i see it he quit his football team to work on his grades which was not good enough to get in the U where he and his mom wants him to be."

Whoa. Is that the story? Grades over football? If that's the case, sign him up. Camp Swasey will find out if he's Cane enough.

You may fall into the Joe Rose diehard crowd, but eventually it looks foolish defending Randy Shannon after he gets waxed for his sixth loss of the year.


It is a bad thing, having fair weather fans is the problem with Miami. They only come out when the program is winning and when there 6-6, 7-6 season, no one cares. I look at these comments and its things like that which is the difference between Miami and the likes of Alabama. Remember, Alabama was not always winning titles. They had Mike Shula as a coach who sucked. But those die hards still filled Bryant Denny Stadium every Saturday win or lose. But they let the Alabama administration know about it, and now they Nick Saben. But they don't get Nick Saben w/o the financial support of people, even when they were losing. Its really the biggest difference between Miami and schools like that.

I look at that just b/c my team is losing, I am not going to waver on my support. What I have is the hope that the administration knows that losing is not acceptable and will do right by making the changes necessary. But its people that continue to give the support that allows the school to hire and pay Al Golden so Al Golden can bring a winner back and hire the liked of James Coley. If everyone who supported Miami pulled all their money back, the program would never exist. So we as fans, need to hope and trust they make the right decison to replace the likes of awful coaches like Randy Shannon. But I will certainly continue to give my support so I can see Miami win again and bury my head in the sand until it happens, like a fair weather fan.

I also see it like this: when Miami hired Al Golden we as Canes fans knew Shannon left him with nothing and it was obvious by what we saw in that Sun Bowl game. But we were really excited for the prospects of whats to come. But let me ask you this, knowing how excited you were when Miami hired Golden but also knowing losing was still going to happen over the short term, are you saying you would not give money to Miami to help Golden build a winner? That to me is garbage and short sighted and fans like that are not "true" fans.

I was AT that last Orange Bowl game, I was AT the ND game this year, and a bunch of other Randy Shannon games where I knew Miami was going to get pummeled. But I was still there. But I was also at the last 2 title games too and those great FSU games so I am there all the time. But I will not waver in my support and the little that I give each year I hope will go to making Miami what it was and what we all think it should be.
