Panthers PR Dept.‏@PanthersPR

TE Greg Olsen sets new #Panthers record for receiving yards in a season by a tight end. Passes Wesley Walls (822, 1999).

IraqiCane

On March 3, 2011, Shockey signed a one year deal with the Carolina Panthers. Along with fellow tight end Greg Olsen, Shockey proved to be an important part of the Panthers' offense in 2011—the pair accounted for a combined 995 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns.[7] He was not re-signed for the 2012 NFL season by the Carolina Panthers, making him an unrestricted free agent.[8]

Awesome news thanks 86Cane!

Bring Shockey to coach tightends!!! let Carroll just be the Recruiting coordinator

From Gerry Hamilton at 247 sports:

2. Artie Burns, CB, Miami Northwestern

Simply put, Burns enjoyed an otherworldly day at corner. Burns not only showed his pure speed, but also demonstrated his ability to redirect routes in press coverage, react and recover and close with physicality to ensure pass break ups. Over the course of two days, Burns has been very impressive athletically and physically with active hands.

FROM FLORIDA HS FOOTBALL:

#8 Artie Burns| Miami Northwestern HS | Miami, FL | 6’0, 183 | Miami (FL)

Artie Burns is just an overall amazing athlete. Not only is he ranked as a top ten cornerback on ESPN, but Burns is nation’s No.1 hurdler with the top times in the 110-meter hurdles and the 300-meter hurdles. However, Burns is committed to the University of Miami to play cornerback. Burns hopes to make an immediate impact at Miami like his former high school teammate and 2012 Under Armour All-American, Amari Cooper, has done at Alabama.

I'd really like to hear a tangible candidate for the UM WR position. I've heard none.

Does anyone know the salaries of our coaches? I know UM is a private institution, but it would be a nice guess. We need to keep Fisch at all costs. Dude is working wonders. Tell the hobbit to stop being cheap.

Joe Garcia thinks we get Grace, Bostwick, Thomas, AQM, Either Collins or Coley and Kirkland.

That would be a monster haul. I will take it.

Interview with Alex Gall. Good stuff. A Skyline chili fan! Great comments about FSU:

"Grace, Bostwick, Thomas, AQM, Either Collins or Coley and Kirkland."

- If AQM comes to UM, that's MAJOR in terms of need and geography.
- I hope grades pan out. If so, big time year.

I predict 9-3 next year

Me too Co. And I am not budging from that until they achieve it :-D

5 Questions with Travis Benjamin

http://www.cleveland.com/browns/index.ssf/2012/12/five_questions_with_cleveland_13.html

86Cane

Five Questions? What a great idea! Maybe we should try that? LOL

herbieibis

How many ships do we have left? If we get Mo, Thomas, Bostwick (grades may be iffy), Collins & Coley that would be awesome but what if Williams & Bryant want in, then what? Listening to Williams, his last visit is set for LSU. All I can say is Al needs to tell some roster taker to take a hike. It would really suk, if Bostwick can't get in and we don't get Bryant. Bryant is probably FSU anyway, as well as Kirkland but how nice would it be if we could get them all.

WWIN

I would have only the dude is built like a rock! LoL

LMAO. I didn't say you couldn't run after you did it lol

Anthonyjmanis

Al Golden up next Cfb

LB

"Bryant is probably FSU anyway, as well as Kirkland..."

I don't agree with that. You can't tell what Bryant is going to do, and Kirkland (grade depending) is UM.

KiriJax

Strong may hate Miami, but I do admire him for the way he stayed loyal to UL and didn't jump on the first SEC ship passing by. Just one Golden quality about him there.

You're right, I mean it couldn't hurt to at least TRY to land the kid. It's just so unlikely. Coach Hamilton at FSU is a really good recruiter and his team has made a couple Sweet 16s and is the defending ACC Champs. That'll get you some pull with the big names. Not to mention they get a McDonald's All-American pretty frequently (I know that Mike Snaer was one). But it would definitely be the biggest recruit ever in our program if we landed him...by a LONG shot.

Go Canes!

86Cane

Golden sounded good on ESPN. South Beach in the background didn't hurt recruiting either.

86Cane

Hmmmmmmmm...

Wow. His wife's name is LaShonda. Can't remember anything else.

The University of Miami women’s tennis team will open its 2013 spring campaign as the nation’s ninth-ranked team as announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Last season, the Canes advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championship for the fourth consecutive year before falling to eventual national champion Florida.

KiriJax

The women's team is doing good, need that special recruit to get to the top! The men's team on the other hand, start at #65 and have a lot to prove. Coach Rincon could be on the hot seat if this season doesn't show improvement.

BEERicane

Olsen is a clutz.

The Wizard

Did anybody else see Matthew Thomas throw up THE U after his pick ?

laquinton

if we get colorados wr coach.. they get dukes wr coach.. bet

The Wizard

Matthew Thomas just leveled the QB in the open filed and threw THE U into the camera !!!!!

DeeCane

Does anyone see that referee looks like Howard Schnellenberger...lol...It looks like Matthew Thomas wanted to throw up the U when he got that pick...

elliott

Just a few observations....

Oregon looks really small
Florida is not that good and we should murder them next year..
Our QB,RB, and WR's are all better than what they have
Our schedule looks very easy next year....

Montreal_Cane

What is wrong with Bosa going to OSU...Have some south florida pride man.

Posted by: DeeCane | January 04, 2013 at 06:20 PM

Schnelly - LOL. I was thinking the same thing.

Matthew Thomas is very good. I may have already said this before, but saw him play last year and this year, and he is definitely the real deal. Thomas, Carter and Burns are the kinds of playmakers on D that the Canes need.

TJL

Bosa's uncle is Eric Kumerow-He played at OSU and was the WORST 1st round draft pick in Dolphin history-a complete bum-

Mcginns ale house

Gionna Paul out at um---that really sucks I liked him

Montreal_Cane

Any good news tonight?

UMike


Any good news tonight?

One more spot is open lol

Montreal_Cane

Tim Reynolds ‏

Gionni Paul, Miami breakup was a MUTUAL decision. Commence with your incorrect conspiracy theories.

Montreal_Cane

Denzel perryman ‏@D_Perryman52
Honesty, consistency, loyalty.. All I want

Yes we can read between the lines.

Good luke Mr. Paul.

Montreal_Cane

That's right UMike

Mcginns ale house

I think we all know the story. Lets not rehash it. Paul was gracious
In his statement thanking the fans and wishing the hurricanes well.

canezilla

FIRST TIME SEEING OLSEN PLAY. AM I NOT SEEING WHAT EVERYBODY IS RAVING ABOUT. HE LOOKED LIKE HE DIDN'T EVEN BELONG ON THE FIELD????

Montreal_Cane

One more reason for Matthew Thomas to come to the U...Playing time as a freshman.

The Wizard

Could that open a spot for the other LB Foster ?

Old Skool

Is everything cool with EJ now?

Montreal_Cane

The At&Tcommercial with Bob Stoops recruiting a player...Is it an NCAA violation? Lol...

LB

"What is wrong with Bosa going to OSU...Have some south florida pride man."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he was offered.

UMike

I sure hope so..or we will have a hard time next year at LB

Posted by: canezilla | January 04, 2013 at 08:10 PM

He definitely had a bad series, but he is still a top QB..that is why he started, because he showed he was the best. You also have to remember how far ahead the defense usually is in these type of games and he was forced out of the pocked a few times to start of

UMike

Posted by: LB | January 04, 2013 at 08:24 PM

I watched a few St. Thomas games this year and I wasn't impressed at all by Bosa...I could be very wrong, but from what I saw it is no big loss. Either way I will root for a south Florida kid no matter where they go

Montreal_Cane

The Stoops brothers Bob and Mike going at each other on the side lines...I love it.

Montreal_Cane

Manziel the best freshman QB we have ever seen.
