NEGATIVE RECRUITING

Trust me on this. 5* Jalen Ramsey from here in Nashville, said we were getting the DEATH PENALTY and his people laughed at me when i told them we wasn't. He LOVES da CANES.

Ohio can vouch for me, I emailed him about 2 weeks ago telling him and told him he was going to fsu before he flipped.

Mr. Collins....BEST of LUCK no matter what.

Having said that, PARENTS usually know what is best for kids. At the VERY least more than a Coach with issues....and Ex Cane coach is best friend. Let Mamma Collin have her say...she wants to see her boy play ball...and she won't be able to make it to Ark. She has right to say what she wants.
Then Mr. Collins can sign where he wants.

Ohio_Cane

Collins is 17 or 18 lol

Does anybody know how many scholarship players were returning from last year? Also. Is Cookie coming back?

orange 'n green in the vein

All the coaches who obviously excelled at their jobs who didn't play at UM, gone.

All the jabronies from Philly, still there stealing their paychecks.

All the shortcomings of a defensive coach who coaches horrible defense and can't recruit his own back yard first, coming home to roost.

All the tape of 2007 FIU's offense, gone because they were so atrocious they looked like UM's 2012 defense except with worse high school grades.

All the fans of one of the most transparent used car salesmen of all time in the head coaching role at UM, still making any justification for excuses as to why he isn't getting it done.

Maybe for his next trick Golden can lure Walt Frazier out of retirement at Carol City in an attempt to get him to 'stand in line' like he did with Ice while everybody feverishly stimulates themselves to how great a move it is as the rest of the school back up the haulers to take the local talent out of town while their mom's try and hide the LOI's and unplug the fax machines? I smell a tailgate brewing for that one!

Felipe

Uncle Look, Gatewood, Ice: who needs enemies with friends like these?


Horrible people.

The 32 exclamation marks are an excellent mark of maturity, aren't they?

Ice stole Mannys I phone

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Honestly, as talented as Alex is, i don't really want him coming here just because of his mom's wishes.

Imagine him practicing at green tree and he is just bleh! Not giving his all!

Coaches are great, but your PARENTS are the ones who are going to be there no matter what!!! (Pregnancy, bills, grades, etc)

Parents be parents and direct your child in the best direction for LIFE. Coaches on the field.

Good points as well U. I think you need to get advice from all; if a kid wants to go somewhere, and the education is right regardless, then thats great...Collins would get a great ED at the U...even if he sits. However he should not come here and be unhappy, cause he will not get the education if hes out of it. Schools are hard to read; Arkansas and our programs are a mess; but the education may be priceless!!!

Parents be involved, do the research, talk to the faculty, administration, not just the football program. Talk to educators athe your kids school, but let the kid have a say as well. It is a process...takes a lot of effort.

Maybe Mrs Collins is right, maybe she knows his education at the U will be top notch...maybe she is educated as well....we do not know the whole story. I just hope the kid does alright.

Wondering about Columbus stud rb Lorenzo Woodley? He's waiting a few more days to make a decision.
.

RB Chesnut went to Indiana.

UpNorthCane27

Chestnut and Woodley are they similar backs? whos better?

j.w.

Ohio: legally, he cannot sign a LOI if he is not 18 without his parent's consent. :)

"Per wqam Collins is at school saying he wants to go to UMand his mom wants him at um and he is there w um gear but Doug ate good is pressuring him to arky..."

Someone purporting to be a teacher at the school who took the day off also is saying that Gatewood is pressuring the family into Ark when he really wants UM.

Can someone tell Gene Chizic those no sideburn haircuts went out in the 80s

UpNorthCane27

Soem reporters have to really grill this assholeeeee, joe rose whoever it is needs to really interrogate gatewood on why hes pushing him to arky

Ohio_Cane

jw, actually has to be 21 to legally sign a NLI

Felipe

Skai Moore's LOI in at USCe.

2 moves Golden made wrong this cycle:

1) Pulling Kirkland schollie, giving Ice ammo to go HAM on the program when there was way more to it and we all know that. Hell with Ice

2) Not recruiting Skai.

Schweaty Balls

Can somebody please supply a Mama Collins cam so we can track all this.

OGV.....Can you smell what Da Rock is Cooking at the tailgate party?

Your humor is amazing at times....you are a funny man and I always read what you say. Thanks for some insight....you do make people think....

At Miramar now and in the background there's a UM logo but no Louisville logo. Probably a hint to where Jermaine Grace is declaring.

Agree, also schedule makes a big difference for both, TCU wasn't quite the same in the B12/10

RBLCane

Regardless of the "lack of intellectual depth" apparent in these conversations, people and local athletes listen to these shows. They also listen to Luke and all the other disgruntled SoFla coaches voicing their opinion on local media. It's simply not good.

As happy as I am with our class, I would prefer it if we didn't have these sentiments plaguing the program all the time. It's a constant distraction and we already have so many other things to deal with.

That being said, I wish Luke would come out with some hard facts. In other words, who are the kids that want Miami so bad that Miami doesn't want back?

And what if there's some truth to these assertions? It's very possible that a lot of these local athletes just won't cut it at Miami academically despite meeting the minimum GPA and standardized test scores (especially with the rising academic standards at Miami). After all, Miami-Dade County Public Schools are among the worst in the nation. In fact, I think I read somewhere that OVER 50 PERCENT of kids with a Miami-Dade HS diploma can't even cut it at community college, so you're damn sure they're not gonna cut it at Miami, which doesn't offer any remedial type of education.

Koop and Crowder now on the air discrediting Luke and Sileo.

Ohio_Cane

JW, that's what I just read. Haven't actually checked rules

UpNorthCane27

I cant take old fart Holtz serious at all man, especially him and that Catholic commercial he's in lmao

really interrogate gatewood on why hes pushing him to arky

Posted by: UpNorthCane | February 06, 2013 at 01:06 PM

Uh, I think U can figure that out all on your own. Jus sayin...

orange 'n green in the vein

VA, good to see you back around these parts with some regularity BTW, think you've got this Collins LOI thing exactly right, guy wants to not be in Duke's shadow, nothing wrong with that if that's his feelings and why shouldn't they be at this point, guy is Bo Jackson in Tecmo Bowl at this point, probably feels like he could run through the entire defensive roster of the SEC right now and wouldn't be all in, at least initially until he probably would warmup to the locale at UM but that's all my guess and has no basis in reality as far as I know. If UM hadn't come up bone dry on most of these 'uncommitted's' today would this fiasco be anything other than a curious sideshow on here today? Highly unlikely but desperate recruiting times have fans clutching at anything for a last minute life saver being tossed to them as they feel the waves wash over their heads in the middle of the NCAA pecking order ocean.

UpNorthCane27

O 86 i def know but i want them to put his ass on the air..... have him stuttering and coming up with bs excuses.... then let fans call in and rip him a new one...

UpNorthCane27

They said it best on ESPN college football is a mature sport its a Junior and Senior game, yea you can have underclassmen here and there that help but its for the big boys.... i agree

"Soem reporters have to really grill this assholeeeee, joe rose whoever it is needs to really interrogate gatewood on why hes pushing him to arky"

UpNorth, Joe Rose is one of the absolute worst personalities in the history of media. He is an embarassment to Florida and his continual defense of Randy Shannon was downright pathetic. He hasn't proclaimed an original thought in his entire stint. He asks the same eight questions, continually.

Sid Rosenberg is the only choice.

Don't be surprised if Keef goes to Kentucky. LOL

Actually, don't be surprised wherever he picks. Most unknown pick ever.

FORGET NSD, WORST NEWS OF THE DAY BY FAR:

After 12 years leading Miami's volleyball program, Nicole Lantagne Welch has accepted the head coaching position at UC Santa Barbara. Lantagne Welch was announced as the Gauchos' new head coach during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.

A two-time ACC & AVCA East Region Coach of the Year, Lantagne Welch had been the head coach of the University of Miami volleyball program since it re-started for the 2001 season.

The most successful coach in school history, Lantagne Welch led Miami to a 243-120 record (.669), posting winning seasons in 10 of the 12 years while reaching 20 wins on six occasions. Lantagne Welch has led the Hurricanes to the NCAA tournament five times, including in each of the past four years.

j.w.

You are correct, Ohio. Wow, wonder how they get away with that? You can vote at 18 but need a parent's signature to sign a letter of intent until your 21?

That was all about Ice creating the context by which he could bash the program and place the blame on us while masking the fact that he has an anti-UM agenda. He needs to get called out!

Felipe

I agree 3G Cane.

In other news, Channing Crowder is an honorary Cane for being willing to take on Luke / disagree with him over the past few months or so. God, when Gators are more friendly to the U than Miami coaches, you know these high schools gotta start making some changes. Corrupt ass stuff goin on.

Hatewood is done, that check from Arky is gonna be canceled by tomorrow dawg.

The person that asked we have 66 on roster and no Cookie is no longer with us, Neither is The Mad Stork, did you wake up from your winter hibernation early?

Why is everyone on Skai? Has anyone here seen Lance Virgile ball, he is longer then Moore and better and played for a better program, he also had the game turning play int he State Championship, just played in the USA VS. the World all star game.
