UM training room going from 3,500 to 13,000 sq ft? WOW!

Ohio_Cane

A couple guys that are joining our football team next year are "elite, ELITE" track guys.

Hmmmmm....

Artie Burns and.... Maybe there's more to this Kermit thing than I thought?

Couldn't be talking about Rashard Robinson, could he? He's very fast for his size, but elite?

Brevardcane

That's what got me thinking too.. When he said elite I could only think of señor frog

Oh, we are ready for FSU & Flo.It may have to be a shootout. FSU will have a new QB and Flo. loses some key people off of defense. Then, alas, there is our defense, well like I said it 's probably going to be a shootout!

So you're telling us that Duke got 2,000 yards and 14 touchdowns (1 passing) with injuries and without a full workout regime? That is FRIGHTENING for opposing teams, especially with the manbeast Hagens and the o-line returning.

U are 100% correct Sir.

Now, please pass The Heisman!

I thought Robionson was an LSU commit? No way he winds up a Hurricane, is there? What does Golden have a magic wand or something?

He did say recently Miami and LSU are neck and neck, but can the Canes beat the $$$ train? I don't think so!!

But seriously, Rashard Robinson to UM IF he doesn't take the bag o' cash from Le$ Mile$

U are 100% correct Sir.

I heard that Baylor's rb said that he's guaranteeing that he'll win the heisman next year, I guess he hasn't heard of Duke Johnson yet??

texican cane

Thanks to those who replied about the Pitt area.

WWIN

Ohio,

how good do you think Robinson is??? I heard he'll probably have to red shirt

Brevardcane

I would guess he would redshirt too just by his weight. But he could put on some good weight by next fall.

The Dude

I think Matthew Thomas could play safety. Kid is a freak. Reminds be of Brian Urlacher.

But seriously, Rashard Robinson to UM IF he doesn't take the bag o' cash from Le$ Mile$

They gave Patrick something or other $60K.

What is the going rate these days?

Looking forward to seeing u all at the Spring Game on April 13th. BTW I sure hope our Canes ticket office keeps the season ticket prices at this past season levels. Hopefully that plus a Coastal Division and 9 plus win season that can improve season attendance by 5%. Let's go Canes.

Looking like the recruiting season is going to outdo expectations. The other question is how the b-ball team will hang on until big Reggie is back late in the season.

What Al Golden said on wqam and above What Mario had to say at his presser.

LB

Whitfield is not coming here. Period. He's not going to visit, and that's by design.

canesteeler

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy to early to make predictions about what the Canes record will be next season. If we can get our ol to dominate next season, offensively we should be very good. I have very little confidence in the D under Dno, however I am very optimistic.

CGNC

canesteeler - you are right but I have been at 9-3 for so long I am bound to hit it sooner or later - LOL

Stoked about the return of the Pens?

CGNC

On the BB team:
From the Winston-Salem Journal


CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina couldn’t stop Miami’s 3-point shooting at critical times Thursday night or handle its tall frontline most any time, and the Tar Heels suffered a second consecutive ACC loss.

Behind forward Kenny Kadji, Miami won 68-59 at the Smith Center, which kept UNC winless in conference play. Miami pulled away in the final 4:30, right after the Tar Heels chopped their deficit to 56-55 on a 3-point basket by P.J. Hairston.

Miami held firm by getting four shots on its next possession, starting with a missed 3-pointer by Durand Scott. Julian Gamble, a former Durham high-school player, grabbed the rebound and missed two follow shots, but stuck in a third for a three-point lead.

he Hurricanes then sealed the victory by making two 3-point shots, both from almost the same spot on the floor. Taking advantage of UNC defensive breakdowns and what Coach Roy Williams called miscommunication, Trey McKinney Jones hit from deep on the left baseline, and Scott hit from there 38 seconds later.

“We let Miami have too many open shots at the end,” Hairston said. “The good shooters had the ball. We wanted to get the ball out of the good shooters’ hands and play good defense down the stretch because we still had a chance with three minutes left.”

j.w.

Good stuff, CGNC, thanks! I was so busy last week I didn't know we had hired Cristobal until 24 hours later, and would have forgot about the UNC game if it wasn't on at the gym.
Steeler- I'm with you, too early for a prediction from me, I want to see who is healthy, who steps up at LB, whether we get another RB to sign, and how many JC DL come in. Cautiously optimistic about this one. Last year I was right with a 7-5 prediction, I hope my prediciton this year includes more wins.
CGNC- got two opportunities on horses, now- one is a "free lease" (my best guess on exactly what this means is that I pay room and board, the rest is free), or a very good, broke mare for $2,500, who is a bit rusty but has an incredible lope. The free one is a gelding who knows very little other than her brakes, but tries real hard to learn. Tough decision, but it looks like opportunities are there for me.

86Cane

86! You leaving me for 10-2????? I'm sticking to my 9-3.

Posted by: CGNC | January 11, 2013 at 02:15 PM

I will always love U, and yes CGNC we had some good times with 9-3.

Breaking up is hard to do, but now it is time for some MaryLou and 10-2.

Speaking of MaryLou are U still out there?

Montreal-Cane

Prediction 9-3 but it would be safer to make a prediction after NSD and spring training.

CaneInsider - @CANEINSIDER: Breaking: NCAA notice of allegations expected in next 72 hours http://t.co/WMLGTqct

The Dude

About f*cking time NCAA!

By the way, it wasn't so crazy after all to move an existing coach to WR was it 86? I still think they should have hired Sol, but Cristobal I am happy with.

roachcane77

Thank goodness...

Even if the NOA released by the NCAA is horrible, at LEAST we can now move forward!

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 12, 2013 at 01:52 PM

3 weeks before NSD That is viscious, the NCAA is like the mafia, it's a fraud. They don't care to tarnish the dreams and hopes of innoncent student athletes. It's time to dismantle the NCAA universities presidents...

86Cane

Dude...I am happy with the hire also.

Ohio...I just saw that CaneInsider article flash across on Twitter re: the NOA coming within 72 hours. Funny that the NCAA waited until right before NSD, but UM is likely to appeal any findings so that actual penalty phase will not be for another 3-6 months.

86Cane

One thing that folks may not know is that Kehoe and Cristobal did not always get along and will have to mend some relationships for this to work out well.

roachcane77

I did not know that fact 86...

Any idea what their disagreements stemmed from?

86Cane

FROM THE CANEINSIDER ARTICLE:

According to a source close to the University of Miami’s NCAA investigation, the University is expected to receive the Notice of Allegations (NOA) from the NCAA within the next 72 hours. Upon receiving the NOA the University will have up to three months to respond at which time they will go before NCAA infractions committee . According to the source, whom spoke under the condition of anonymity, the University can elect which of the allegations in the NOA to release publicly due to being a private institution. It is not likely the University will release the entire NOA to the general public and will elect to release certain aspects of the NOA that are believed to have already been a known allegation.

86Cane

Roach...not sure exactly, maybe just their competitive natures. Both are VERY pssionate about what they do and tempers flare in practice. Obviously Golden would not have hired him unless they felt it would work so I trust him on this one.

Also, Mario could have gone to the Tampa Bay Bucs (Schiano) or Cleveland Browns (Chudzinski) but turned down more $$$ to coach at UM. Mad props to him for that!

Move over Jonnie Football....

Make room for the Duke of college football!

Pap cane tweeted FSU offered Mario too. Definitely glad he turned them down.

roachcane77

I'm REALLY glad we got Mario... I'm just hoping they ALL pull together and get us our 6th NC !

Just heard NCAA notice of allegations in 72 hrs

Don't remember if this was posted or not? Funny Cleveland hired Butch and now Chud, two former Miami guys:

FROM WWW.FOOTBALLSCOOP.COM:

Dallas Cowboys: ESPN reports that Monte Kiffin has agreed to become defensive coordinator of the Cowboys. Sources tell us the Cowboys are also looking to bring someone new in to run the offense. Offensive staff members have been informed of this decision. Will keep you updated.

j.w.

So, the day is finally just about here. Very strange that they wouldn't release everything, but maybe that's just the source talking without knowing. These things are never going to stay quiet, and the NCAA will publicly release its findings after the hearing, so my bet is that we see the entire thing at some point in time. I'm glad the wondering is just about over, that is often worse than the NOA. I'm w
