Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Not the end of the world for us, it only means we're going to pursue Sony Michel even harder.

I work with the kid's cousin and i can tell you all he speaks of is Miami, of course it doesn't mean he is a cane lock.

No! James Cooley! Mario Cristobal! Monster! Three heads! Like a giant mutant of recruiting that is mostly from Miami and partly from Philly by way of Jersey!

The Dude

Golden missed on what should have been a gimme. I can't help but wonder $EC?

DeployedDiehardCane

PHUUUUUUUUUCK! Getting Thomas and some DTs would make up for this but who knows now. Welcome to the U, Gus the Bus, lol. Meant that sarcastically. This sucks.

The Dude

OGV=really funny.

jerry

It looks real bag for Us on Wed...... Maybe we get two of the guys we want and Goldi will be left with a couple of open Scholies... for 2 star guys....

thirstybuzzardcane

If you grew up a fan of a college and if they offered you a scholarship to play football, wouldn't you take it? I know I would in a heart beat!!!!!

The Dude

If Golden gets shut out...

Does everything have to be about bashing the coaches. That crap gets old, man. It's like you're gloating. Also what's up with bringing up Shamwow and this had nothing o do with ice. Nothing.

I'm sure this is us a big disappointment to most of us, it is to me, but no reason to rub our noses in it.

No offense, just had to get that out. On to the next one, this is over, best of luck to him.

Then he moves on to 2014, no biggie!

orange 'n green in the vein

Only when they suck as much as they do right now C_1. When they do something good, they get credit. Tonight, they get jibed for setting fire to the fence.

Mcginns never got back with those career win percentages did he? Should head to head recruiting battles count double or triple? You're right, they should be exponential.

The Dude

Canesfan. Don't give him the power. OGV has his opinions. And they are funny. We all have our opinions. Let's please not start the whole you hurt my feelings when you post meran things debate again. Please?

The Dude

*mean things

CoCane

I knew he would pick Arkansas when they asked him about them & smiled really hard. Judging from the way he talked about never getting outside of south florida before. He basically committed to the "U" just to get his name out there. He wasn't a true cane. Fukk'em. He's from the crib so I hope he balls out but he just made a dumb choice imo...

This is a bad start leading up to wednsday though. I hope it goes better in a couple of days.

TonyCane

Then again, it is still an oral commitment.

Perhaps he'll have second thoughts in 24 hours.

Montreal-Cane

We got Kirklanded tonight the biggest mistake
this recruiting season from the U coaches...They didn't have to create this saga just before NSD Next time shut the f up.

CaneRock

WELP!, look at the bright side, at least we didn't get stuck with John Franklin.

The Dude

I honestly don't route for the kid. I route for his career to suck and for us to punish him. I want us to make him regret his choice for the rest of his life. I want him to get punked like the old Canes would punk him. I want him to have to move to Arkansas because he can't show his face in Miami. Just being honest.

orange 'n green in the vein

I really would like to abide by The Dude here.

Nice posts are easy when you're talking about the best team in school history, not easy when talking about one of the worst.

TC, great point, you can never lose something you never truly had in the first place so once again nothing is finished until the LOI is in the fax tray.

RBLCane

Then again, it is still an oral commitment.

Perhaps he'll have second thoughts in 24 hours.

Sooo you're saying there's a chaaance!

LOL

thirstybuzzardcane

What a stupid______!........Collins would of been 1 injury away from being the starter if he signed with us. What a stupid mistake this was for him!!......why can't these kids have the mentality of Frank Gore

The Dude

Lol RBL

JCane

I used to follow the recruiting way more closely, but watching what a bunch of 18 y/o boys pick from second to second ain't worth it. Hopefully most of the guys AG wants he'll get, and the rest, good luck. Not with the Canes, I don't need to worry about him any more. Let's see how Coach G does with the guys he gets over the next few days, what happens with the NCAA, and see how the next two years go.

Otherwise, instead of wondering when the U will be top 10 again, why don't we give more respect and attention to the guys on the hardwood who are top 10 now?! They now have gotten the respect they wanted, are as high as they're going to get by way of leapfrogging imo, and now have to keep winning while hoping for teams in front of them to lose. A loss and down they go. Just win, and don't worry about the rest, as there is an ACC and NCAA tnmt. to look for seeding with, with the first one giving an opportunity to guarantee a very high seed if they pull it out (a 1 or 2 is quite possible). This week we've got both #1 and #3 IU and UMich playing a tough Ohio State team, and #4 Duke will go against the Wolfpack. A Duke loss would put the Dukies further back in the ACC race(they've already lost twice) and even give the U some breathing room with a loss in Duke later this season (although I don't want to see this team get too comfortable and blow a game like upcoming BC tomorrow). If memory serves, although NCState has lost 4 in ACC play this season, only one has come at home for them (to the U in a nailbiter). For the U, going on the road to Duke will even be a better experience to prepare for the tnmt, as this team so far has been superb at home and just good enough on the road.

What a season. Savor it.....

Now, I hope Wednesday is f...ing awesome. Thanks for all of the info. from OC, Hassan, etc.

mi@mic@ne

Beautiful campus? What is this a beauty contest.. seriously.. what happened to talking about being a number 1 draft pick from a proven winner? whats going on in our world?

The Dude

Great post JCane.

thirstybuzzardcane

Guess this kid doesn't want to be in Dukes shadow!!!!!

CoCane

TonyCane,

Collins knew he would be the 1-2 punch with Duke next year. His family would be able to come & see him play every home game. HE STILL CHOSE ARKANSAS. He didn't want to share the spotlight, getting sold on the you'll be our featured back pitch. He's selfish. Fukk'em. More room for Sony Michel...

The Dude

OGV, no more about the defense. Ha ha. We are trying to delete those memories and when you post about it, it brings flash backs. I have PTSD from No D. You're posts are counteracting with my medication.

I'm sorry, but, EL OH EL........

Seriously? Just cuz of this ONE guy?

86Cane

Soooey, sooooey! Love me some hogolicious girls. Somewhere Phil Collins is drumming a mad solo. And somewhere else Alex Collins, is well not so much?

thirstybuzzardcane

Ohio Cane, hope that wasn't one of your silence you knew about.....if it was, we are in big trouble on Wed. Say something to make me feel better...lol

The Dude

That was like a fill in the blank thing Ohio.

thirstybuzzardcane

I'm having chest pains right now!!!!!!!!!

The Dude

I hope Collins gets a haircut and some sh*tkickers 86. For his sake. Can we send him some sh*tkickers? On behalf of Miami fans?

He was actually one of my homer picks. All signs pointed to Miami.

The Dude

If not sh*tkickers can we get him some overalls? If we all chip in?

orange 'n green in the vein

The Dude, like I said before, I was dedicating it for Keef, therefore I've almost blanked out the newfangled Miami three man rush play-call coaching tactic when you can't generate pressure with less than six to give up those behind the chains third and longs to UVA every year. Oh and dropping your best DT in a zone blitz on an obvious passing down so he can try and hip check the RB before the catch and get a good view of him and he runs to the endzone, can't forget that one . . . unless--

THIS ONE'S FOR KEEF ALSO!

Montreal-Cane

OGV tonight i have the right to be negative...LOl.....

Really i didn't expect Golden to let this one slip away along with the stupid move in the Denver Kirkland saga few hours before NSD.

But i still have great faith in Golden.

thirstybuzzardcane

How did Storm Johnson do at UCF? Didn't hear much about him this year.

Terrance Sullivan

That Dallas and Houston oil money combined with Walmart money from Bentonville suburban Fayetteville is a Biotch. Not surprised at all. Go Canes.

nathan sasser

Lol u guys kill me.sucks but we will be fine.

UpNorthCane27

Cant believe alex collins man.... If you saying you wan further ur academic and playing career and you pick arkansas you got issues!!!

Ohio_Cane

Jamie Newberg - Alex Collins said he actually came to his decision right b4 he came on set. #ark it will b on http://FoxSportssouth.com in 5 minutes

Interesting. Quick decision, huh?

thirstybuzzardcane

Just give me Thomas and a DT and I will be happy on wed.

CaneRock

Guess this kid doesn't want to be in Dukes shadow!!!!!

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | February 04, 2013 at 11:04 PM

YUP!
I think that's what it was.
He did say that He didn't wanna take Duke's spot.
Anyhoos, can't worry about Him no mo, they're not gonna cancel the season because we lost a 5*.

orange 'n green in the vein

Monty, that's about as un-smooth as I've ever seen Golden operate in all his years of coaching. Great that he waited until he was at UM to let the facade start to slip, or maybe that's the water level above his head that's making it float away as he sinks under.

And on that note, time to make another one for Keef.
