a
Alex Collins to Arkansas per Manny Navarro

I hope he's wrong and it could just be wishful thinking on his part since he's turned to a cane hater recently

86Cane

I am not going to pretend to KNOW because I DON'T but I am being told by two reliable sources that Bostick and Thomas to The U.

Collins could go either way.

Collins - Arkansas

Posted by: UMike | February 04, 2013 at 04:56 PM

It could go EITHER way. Be prepared.

j.w.

Anyone notice that the U is the highest ranked 3 loss team in the AP poll? It makes more sense at #8, as they moved ahead of Mich. State, along with leapfrogging ahead of Louisville (after a big win over Marquette) and Ohio State. There are obviously some believers, and the U isn't going to sneak up on anyone any more this season.

Posted by: JCane | February 04, 2013 at 05:25 PM

I did, J. I'm wondering how long it will take voters to move us ahead of Duke. We beat them, have done better against the same conference opponents (more or less), better RPI, better everything. Time to recognize reality, pollsters. Those early season losses weren't indicative of the team's abilities.

When does AC announce?

Late night with Alex Collins; plus a podcast with David Lake of meaningless recruiting predictions

Ohio, A few days ago you posted that NSD would be "EPIC" for Miami. This indicates to me something very big that nobody knows about but you. Am I correct in my assessment and do you still stand by your statement ?

herbieibis

A.C. better hope Arky don't flip Tenpenny from Bama, or he may be in worst shape if he goes their.

CaneRock

UMike- time for a little Golden persuasion/magic: "Alex, you may think you don't want to be part of a committee, but your future in the NFL is more important. . ." :)

Posted by: j.w. | February 04, 2013 at 04:22 PM

Playing devils advocate here, but I think AC can carry the load at Arky if He decides to go there. And remember, He's only played 2 years of HSFB as it is, so not a lot of wear-n-tear there.
I called Him for Miami a few months ago, but if this kid wants a shot at the Heisman, no way He can do that sharing the backfield with Duke.

So we'll see...

herbieibis

Willie,
I know we have silents, I'm just talking about having this many hanging in the breeze. I'm more worried about the defense side of the ball.

WWIN

This 2013 class is just icing on the cake, we got the cake last year. 2014 Class will be the ICE CREAM wit maybe some strawberry syrup on top.

WWIN

the Herb,

The class is not locked up in YOUR perspective, you don't know what Golden knows. The class might be locked up but he can't let you know and ruin it for these kids NSD spot light

herbieibis

OGV,
That would be 400 or less, on total defense, not rushing. The Herb loves Goldie, just don't like the position we are in, with so many ships hanging in the breeze this late. 85% of this class should of been locked up and maybe waiting on 3 or 4 guys that were iffy.

Herb picked Collins to Ark

orange 'n green in the vein

Sounds like the herb hates Al Golden to me with that 400 yards of rushing post. Herbie, where do you think Collins is going tonight since this is the appetizer to your entire season?

Yepp DC wants to pull a BB

VA Cane

Sorry for Frank, he played hard did a good job. Very good back, good guy.

Very glad Randy Moss lost again. He has never been a champion except for running his mouth, not blocking, taking plays off, not crossing the middle; he's a huge cry baby. I never want losers like him and TO to get a ring in the NFL by riding great players coattails. Both of those guys are complete jerks. Numbers are not everything, you got to have some character, effort, humility, desire and sacrifice to go with them. Neither guy has that. The need a Tatum shot to the body a crippling one. Another reason I was glad to see SF lose was because Mike Greenberg says he's in love with Colin Kap, and was pulling for SF. My number 1 despised ESPN person is Greenberg. He is such an idiot...not a reporter, not a talk show host, a gossip show host. He is a moron.

Cris Carter gets in finally. Guy was a great one. Only thing, he wants his son, Duron is that it? to induct him. Guy could not even get in schools to play, but is going to be in draft this year. Lots of ability, very little character or brain it seems like. Sad, cause CC is a great one.

Willie,
You're right, those fine young lads couldn't be much worse. Here's hoping that we get under 400yds a game with those guys.

WWIN

the Herb,

We'll be fine, you'll see, starting tonight. Porter, Pierre, Robinson, Moore, and King will do just fine at DT this coming up season, mark my words.

herbieibis

Willie,
The Herb is in a giving mood today, now depending on how this shakes out, in could turn into a fowl one in a heart beat. I mean, there's a remote possibility that we don't end up with a RB or DT and that would cause me to absolutely boil.

WWIN

Rock,

Coke,

that sounds about right to me

CaneRock

And AFAIC, seems to me that Bama is coming around to OUR way of recruiting. With the lack of pressure they got against ND, and with Manziel running and throwing all over em', Saban knows He has to get faster on that D-Line/Front 7.
As evidenced by them going after Tim Williams and Alquadin Muhammad.

Ohio_Cane

Lovely weather in Ohio for an Alex Collins commitment!! Lol

Collins picks us tonight to start the fireworks. Then, we rake in the most recruits on NSD to create the biggest buzz in the nation for the off season heading into next year. WATCH

WWIN

Ohio,

now I get it lol. I was thinking maybe I had my times mixed up. I was actually just going to say 7hrs to round it off but I tried to get to cute I guess lol

Schweaty Balls

Schweaty..it would seem that has been the case lately. They pick top kids from every where lol

Posted by: UMike | February 04, 2013 at 02:57 PM

Its Alabama and Nick Saben. Call him what you want, but Saben is a great college coach.

I was listening to a press conference of his after the title game, and a reporter asked him what he does with all his national championship rings, and his response was..."I line them up and put them on the coffee table for all the recruits to look at." Winning does that for you.

CoCane

Ok. I'm guessing like everyone else but I don't think it's a coincidence that all of our targets except Collins is announing on NSD. The only reason Collins is announcing tonight is because he wants all eyes on him...

WWIN

Mike,

They won 3 of the last 4 ships plus they have some helluva hand$hake$ and those hand$hake$ seem to turn into Rolex's and Escalades. We can't compete wit that right now, we'll be able to after this coming up season.

CaneRock

Once that happened it was game over, they get whomever they want.

Posted by: Schweaty Balls | February 04, 2013 at 02:55 PM

No they don't, hence why I posted that AG is holding His own against the likes of Saban. Burns,Dobard,Muhammad, and Olsen are 4 that I know of.

Hello sports fans, It's getting down to the nitty gritty and I see where we have wormed our way back into Kirklands picture, it shouldn't of never come down the way it happened but hey, we can always use linemen and somebody must of told Goldie, they ain't coming, so poof another ship happens to be available for the Kirk Man. So right or wrong the Herb will take a stab at the final destinations for these superstars, that we are waiting on:
Grace: Cane
Thomas: FSU
Bostwick: Cane
Coley: Cane
Bryant: Cane
Collins: Ark
Robinson: LSU
Kirkland: FSU
Edwards: Cane
Brooks: Only a Cane, if Bryant or Bostwick go elsewhere.
Edwards:Cane
Of course I'd like us to get them all but we all know that ain't happening, so first off, since Collins is announcing tonight, lets hope I'm wrong, it's happened before.

Schweaty Balls

UMike, IMO, if 6 doesn't pick Canes, he's going to Bama.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 04, 2013 at 02:46 PM

I actually would agree with you. This is the kind of guy I could see Bama getting, kind of like Amari Cooper.

Posted by: Schweaty Balls | February 04, 2013 at 02:51 PM

I actually read somewhere that a rival coach did not care or worry about who he was recruiting against except when Alabama entered the picture. Once that happened it was game over, they get whomever they want.

Ohio_Cane

Willie, the show starts at 10, he'll be announcing around 10:10.

UMike

Collins as a feature back in the SEC? It may work in the B 10, but you're going to get hit a hell of a lot harder and more often in the SEC. If I'm him, I stay away from that kind of pounding and share the load with another franchise back like Duke.

Posted by: j.w. | February 04, 2013 at 02:53 PM

From what I read he DOESNT want to be part of a "RB by committee" system.

UMike

Losing 6 to any team will hurt. Bad enough about Cooper, thankfully we snagged Burns back, but we can't let this become a trend where the TOP player from our pipeline schools leaves town.

Ohio,

He's announcing at 10pm est time right?

UMike

Ohio..I will respectfully disagree. If anything, he has been a FSU lean and losing Coley to Miami didnt effect him at all. Also..for the people who think that if Collins picks Miami tonight it will some how set a trend your wrong lol. These kids already know. There are not going to change their mind in 48 hours just because Collins picked Miami lol

I still think there is a HIGH possibility Collins picks Arkansas tonight. From listening to the BTW coaches, I dont think 6 is coming neither. I hope I am wrong, would be very bad to lose THE top recruit from Dade County to FSU.

"Arkansas is looking for a feature back in Bielema's run-first offense. The possibility of becoming the next Montee Ball -- Bielema's last workhorse running back at Wisconsin -- has to be intriguing for Collins."

According to ESPN, they say Collins to Arkansas.

Four-star recruit Alex Collins (Plantation, Fla./South Plantation), the nation's No. 7 running back, is set to make his official announcement tonight. Collins will pick between Miami and Arkansas. Two factors will come into play with this particular decision.

Miami has been in the mix all along, because the program is close to home. But this isn't the days of yore where south Florida recruits didn't leave. Collins may well choose the Hurricanes to remain in the area. Arkansas, meanwhile, has done a top notch job establishing a legitimate relationship with Collins.

"I think a late push by Arkansas has put them in position to land Collins," ESPN RecruitingNation's Florida coordinator Corey Long told Rumor Central. "He was very comfortable with (Arkansas head coach) Bret Bielema and (defensive line coach) Charlie Partridge when they were recruiting him at Wisconsin. The familiarity with the staff and a chance to play in the SEC looks like a good fit for Collins."

Corey Dowler of ESPN RecruitingNation also told Rumor Central Arkansas is the likely choice here, but it's "really, really close."

Arkansas is looking for a feature back in Bielema's run-first offense. The possibility of becoming the next Montee Ball -- Bielema's last workhorse running back at Wisconsin -- has to be intriguing for Collins.
