Any word on Collins?

LB

Heads up on 2014:

Dobard's teammate, Gerald Willis (DE), has UM in his top 6.

Khairi Clark (DT), is listed with UM as a tentative #1.

Be in denial all you want but the Dade county talent DOES NOT TRUST GOLDEN. We'll never know what really happened but shyt is fukked up as far as the relationship with the players. Dam...

Posted by: CoCane | February 06, 2013 at 02:58 PM

Go ask Artie Burns and Jamal Carter who are BOTH top ranked recruits from the 305 if they trust him.

Our problem is mainly with one HC at one school. It used to be with 20 or more. Relax, we got this.

Old Skool

Here's how I imagine the 4:00 presser will go down. Golden praise the talents and future prospects of the recruiting class, expresses disappointment over not signing any DTs and then ducks or ignores lots of questions regarding what actually happened with BTW players and the coach.

Felipe

I think he has to duck and ignore the BTW questions. For one, relationship reasons. For another, didn't get any paperwork from Muthafxn Traitor or Denver.

Ironically, it was February 6, 2008, and the Canes just landed the #1 class with an overwhelming 33 players. 5 years later, not even a conference championship and ONE 9 win season. Just sayin'.

orange 'n green in the vein

No, he can comment on signed players because they are no longer recruits in the NCAA's view. He won't because he'll be too busy getting the makeup to stick over the proverbial black eye he's sporting today over it, at least 'smart facade' Golden wouldn't. Who knows what this 'starting to crack' Golden is going to actually do? He's becoming the Keef of Big 3 Sunshine State football coaches ever since the Duke game.

360Cane

So Thomas is saying our coaching staff lied and can't be trusted. LMAO!!!

Isn't that ALL of college football?

orange 'n green in the vein

360, yes, the problem is you have a recruit of his stature saying that UM is the outlier in that designation to the point it becomes an actionable issue to his decision of where to go to school and play football.

Nothing funny about that if you are Hurricane, 'fan,' or alum, even.

360Cane

If you could trade, would you take LB Thomas over OC Coley?

Where can I watch Golden's press conference LIVE ?

CoCane

Soup,

I am relaxed. Lol! Golden isn't relaxed. His hands were shaking holding the mic during his 1st interview on ESPN. He was trying to hold it together but was shook by the disaster with his top targets dissing him. NO DT'S. The main position he needed to make a power move on. Then no Matt Thomas because he didn't trust Golden after the treatment of his teammate. He tried to pressure Kirkland into a decision & FUKKED UP ROYALLY. You can blindly believe all you want but I ain't feeling him. He's got next year to prove that he's got things going in the right direction. By putting a much improved D on the field & making it to the ACC champ game. Anything less than that & fukk'em.

herbiebitchingibis

Golden:
I'm really excited about the young men we signed today. We addressed a hugh need at TE and really upgraded at that position. We need a big back to compliment Duke and we acheived that with Gus Edwards. We added depth on the offensive line, as well as LB, DE & in the secondary.
Al, what about DT? Well as you know we have all our defensive tackles are coming back and sure we're disappointed that we didn't get one but I feel really good about who we have coming back. I mean these guys will be veterans next year and hopefully we get more than 13 sacks and improve upon our 116th ranked defense.
Al, what about BTW fiasco? Miscommunication, was all it really was. We asked the kid to give us his verbal early and he didn't want too. Had he told us we were his choice, nothing else would of taken place but the fool didn't want too, so we jerked the dam thing. It was a simple yes or no question, not a maybe or might, F that. The Iceman ran with that story to Manuel and it F'Ed us up with Matt Thomas. Matt said he was coming here, was a silent commit. Dam FSU took advantage of my azz and stole that boi. That's a bunch of B.S.
So Al that had to sting, losing a 5* Lb right in your own backyard. Dam straight, it hurts. Now I have to go look under some dam rocks and give a ship, one of about 5 I have left, and give it to a kid who was hiding. It will probably bring our overall recruiting ranking down from 54, which sux.
Coach one more question, how do you mend those fences with some of the local coaches. Fences, hell the way all these other schools came in here and tore them down, I feel naked.
Coach what about Alex Collins and his mom running off with his LOI from Arky. Dam smart woman. She brought it to me but what could I do wiff it. Dude F'Ed up to begin with, that's her problem. Look I have 5 ships left anyone know of some under the radars, you tell them good Ole Al will throw them a bone.
Gentlemen, it's been real. Got to go console DENO. Why coach, because I didn't help him much and he knows that hot red poker is up his azz, pushing him out the door. I told him he was on his own next year. Dam if I'm going to take the heat off him one more minute.

360Cane

ogv, it's just like a business getting ONE bad review when I can show you multiple good reviews. And take this for what it's worth...

Future recruits are going to want to see for themselves. Not let some dude they don't even know decide for them.

It's a VERY fishy situation, and I'm cool with taking it on the chin and moving on. Now you're questioning my fan hood because I do not see it as a big deal. Are you new to recruiting or something? Take out your personal feelings and look at it as a business.

Miami does not have the foundation to worry about these NSD flip-floppers. Now what we need to do is go whisper in Grace's ear that we did not want him so he can grow a chip on his shoulder the size of the ones they use to wear in the 80's.

orange 'n green in the vein

360, I can't give you an accurate answer right now because of uncertainties about what he's going to implement and how he's going to handle the roster in regards to strategy and deployment weekly, but my basically uneducated on those key factors guess at this point is, probably.

Now if you want me to read your question as, "Would you trade Thomas over 2007 FIU OC Coley showing up to coach UM in 2013?" Yes, unquestionably.

A DT would could step in and disrupt plays with a quick first step would have been even more a slam dunk affirmative answer to either readings of your question.

CaneRock

NO DT'S. The main position he needed to make a power move on.

Posted by: CoCane | February 06, 2013 at 03:55 PM

Yeah...I can deal with losing Thomas, but to go 0'fer at DT is pathetic. NOT 1!...HELL!, not even a 1*. LMAO!

CoCane

Funny how Thomas was never going to Miami after he says Golden fukked up. Really. I made enough excuses for Shannon. Never again. After years of mediocrity, I want fukkin results. Not excuses. We've been getting a heavy dose of excuses even though Golden said he wasn't going to make any...
Ijs

The Dude

He's got next year to prove that he's got things going in the right direction.
Posted by: CoCane | February 06, 2013 at 03:55 PM

I think you are wrong. If we go 7-5 again he will be the coach at least one more year. No way our D improves that much. DNO is a joke and no one is laughing. I think Golden can be a good HC. But right now he is still a project with upside.

The Wizard

GOLDEN PRESSER ?!?!?!?!?!?

360Cane

Thomas was never coming to Miami.

Posted by: CaneRock | February 06, 2013 at 03:52 PM

Thank you! It's called burning the rival at the stake when you can. Come on 2014 recruits. Don't go to Miami where the coaches can't be trusted. Come to my school, FSwho.

360Cane

So we agree. Time will tell.

orange 'n green in the vein

360, I'm not questioning anything about your any-hood, I'm stating my opinion that the consensus top talent in UM's backyard shouldn't be out there saying they can't trust UM coaches because they are liars and just letting that hang there as not an issue that it is. Al drew his line in the sand and for the short term has ended up buried in it. Hopefully that's the watershed moment we can point back to down the road and say was the act that straightened up some of this local intrigue BS once and for all but right now it's not and UM's suffering for it which is concerning for the future not entertaining in the moment.

But as always, you have to account for the fact that I'm coming up with my next dig at the mutants from Philly that's bordering on out of bounds while I type this, so LOL at what you like at the end of the day, that's part of the reason why this is here after all.

CaneRock

Posted by: CoCane | February 06, 2013 at 04:00 PM

Thomas said He didn't come to Miami, because He wasn't feeling Miami. Matter of fact, it was "Ice" Harris who said He never considered Miami, matter of fact, "Ice" Harris had to nudge Him to listen to Miami.

Sinistercane

Lakers D Antoni plays more defense than D Onofrio


Maybe we should be skeptical of anybody with their last beginning with a "D"

JCane

An @ 18 y/o kid like Thomas complaining about coaches not being trustworth? Is this the same type of kid that the colleges all have to wait on until NSD to say where he is going while other schools and recruits are left holding the bag all to feel like big shots? Gimme a break.....

Not a bad day overall, even though it could have been a bit better. Have a good one all. Thank for all of the updates so I could check when work permitted.

Best 'sign' today from the signatures collected is the FB, even if he's a washout in a final analysis, it signals to me pro-style base for the offense which is important for NFL development chances and my preferred style of offense to pay money to watch employed by a college team.

Jack

According to scouts One DT a two star signed with Miami! There you go CANEROCK, lol

We really filled a glaring need at fullback, though.

Golden says they self-imposed visits with kids too. 27 visits, 16 commits.

Pretty damn good, considering if U ask me.

RBLCane

Rivals analyst on Sedano show says there is "strong possibility" Collins stays in Florida, not necessarily Miami (mom wants him to stay close to home and apparently liked FSU visit).

Analyst's tone seemed optimistic about Collins faxing LOI to Miami tomorrow.

I believe this to be very true.

elliott

horrible class... WTF? Change in prediction for next year went from 11-1 or 10-2 to 7-5. Send out a memo to Golden and tell him that you can not win BIG without a freaking DT! That dominates... Tell me how good we are going to be next year?

Ohio, appreciate the coverage but u straight gased me up bro...

Canezitis

Someone said on sileo's show, that the reason we're not doing so well in sofl is because dno is a horrible recruiter. Probably a big reason why we got cristobal and paid coley so much $. This next recruiting cycle better be much better for sofl kids.being irrelevant and NCAA cloud has killed us, so hopefully those 2 things will be addressed this upcoming season. All in all not a bad class, but we'll see in 2-3 yrs.

RBLCane

I don't think we land Collins either but that was my impression of the analyst (forgot his name unfortunately).

Would REALLY suck if he went to FSWho.

Wonder how this new information about the NCAA investigation being over is going to affect his decision.

Wouldn't be surprised he took all week to decide.

I'll be happy if he comes to Miami. I personally like the kid. He seems like a good, smart kid who's genuinely struggling with his decision and trying to balance a lot of competing interests.

GO CANES.

We cannot compete with Bama on field or for players; aint gonna happen. Saban will compete every year for the title for a while, they will be good. They get good players and coach very well. They run the ball, play tough D, punish people up front on both lines and have smart QBs; they are not fancy. Those kids are afraid to fail, Saban disciplines people. Thats how you win. We have the cloud, we are out of the loop, we draw small crowds, we do not have that dynamic faithful fan support so it is tough. We have to work harder and smarter. Urban will get back in the mix, Florida got a lot of kids (Muschamp is a frumpy slob) FSU gets a lot of kids(but who could not get in that kindergarten academic school) and others are beating us out for kids. We do need to recruit SoF better, too many got away. Lot of kids in Top 100 from Teax as well, we need some of them. We have got to learn to play D; we can score but we stop nobody, and we are not tough on D. We got better, but we must get some great D linemen, we do not have them.

pbcfrcane13

Amazing This time last year Golden was the man one year later with limited scholarships and find out they limited player visits he sucks even though with all this coral he still brining in a top 25 class oh btw we did have a couple of DT who were freshman last year that as actually can get better I know crazy that kids could improve
