“She’s having anxiety,” Johnny said. “I know she preferred him to go to UM. Alex had said he was going to the U, and then all of a sudden he changes his mind. We found out he was going to Arkansas on TV.

Wonder what percentage of visitors actually micro-blogs... It's gotta be pretty small (I.e. less than 5%)... Proud to be part of such a select class!

GO CANES!!!

Alex's heart is not at the U! Sorry mom. That said mom is right on this one.
Alex Just ask Jacoby Brisset :(

Solid class! NCAA BS investigation will no longer be a factor moving forwarded class of 2014 let's go! Future is bright....

TWO BIGGEST RECRUITS 2013 MARIO CRISTABOL AND JAMES COLEY!

Sarasota 'cane

Soup once again you did a great job this week as always with recruiting week. The delusion of our fan base knows no bounds! All things considered I think we have a good class that will help us get to where we all want to go in the near future.

On a side note a caller to the Sedano show today stated that Alex Collin's mother is aware that his coach is to be compensated if he can deliver Alex to Arkansas. Sedano knew the caller and could not confirm the report, but stated that he knew him from the show as a man with local connections and he had no reason to doubt him.

And one final thing, if Dan Sileo and Uncle Luke are "Friends" of UM we certainly don't need any enemies! Sileo and Luke are two of the most toxic problems that we will face a year from now when we do this all over again. That's no an understatement either. Sileo has been steering kids away from UM for years. He tried to backtrack on Matt Patchan last week but he forgets that he already admitted that he told Matt to go to UF when he was working for AM 620 in Tampa. He pumps the SEC and talks so bad about UM to local recruits that it's a wonder we can sign any kid from South Florida! Koop &Crowder were laughing at Sileo and Luke all afternoon about their delusional nonsense!

Again thanks for all the hard work Soup!

Go 'canes!

Good Solid Class.

The Dude

So what's up with Collins and Moore?

CGNC

Well, has everyone put away their sharp objects and backed off the ledges yet????

To all the new recruits that signed: Welcome to the U.

Canedolfan386

I'm happy with the class. Kinda wish we woulda got a couple dt's. Thanks 86 ,umike,Ohio,and others.

We will know whether a class was good or not when the players actually play in the games

"We were meant to be here," Golden's wife, Kelly Golden, told the AP on Wednesday. "Regardless of how it happened, what was said or not said, we need to be here right now. He needs to be here. Not sure who else could weather this storm the way he has. It was for a reason."

Gotta love Mrs. Golden representing.

In before OGV makes a joke out of this and discredits anything she said.

Have you guys seen Bama's class? Holy Crap.....They have been recruiting like that for the past 4 years so for those who don't think stars don't matter may want to rethink that. Just saying.....

CoCane

Dam... Sounds to me like Collins chose Arkansas so him & his high school coach can get paid. His mom peeped game & said hell naw!

Most of the big targets dissed us because we couldn't break them off. I hate the way other programs get away with cheating but the "U" is hated so much we'll get slammed for the slightest slip up...

BigWindyCane1

I am happy with this class. The Canes got some really good players. Under Golden, he will develop them and they will have another group of all-ACC freshmen and Freshmen all Americans. Returning 20 of 22 starters, the Canes will win the coastal (again) in 2013 and I think they can win the ACC. Then, those class of 2014 recruits will continue to roll in and the Canes will be repeating for national championships for years to come.

CoCane

Coker & Shannon got the stars but didn't coach them up. Bad coaching will make an all star team look average. After one too many mediocre seasons, we couldn't get the stars like we used to. If we win this year, the stars will come for 2014. Winning cures everything.

Alabama is what happens when elite coaching meets elite talent. Dynasty. Kansas St is what happens when elite coaching meets mediocre talent. Good every year but can't quite get over the hump.

Utterly perfect chicane. Could not have summed it any better!

There IT is right there.

Like I said before--It will be hard to get good defense players here until No D' is gone. Kids and parents are not stupid. No surprises...

UpNorthCane27

Ohio we all at canespace want to tell you ... Your the fing recruiting guru and Soup your the boss of all bosses my man great articles n keep killin em with canespace...!!!!!

VA Cane

Could not agree more, Bama got it all right now. That is where we were long ago and far away, and where we need to get to again. We cannot get there overnight, but all in all, we have some talent on the field. I think they are very coachable; the MNW Gang of 8 never impressed me after all that hype; Spence was the real deal, Street may show a good hand yet.

Give me 22 Dukes and I can beat you I promise. That young man is all U, and never quits. I do not see the NC for this year, but I think we will surprise people, and we got some good kids.

Feel sorry for collins. As for the coach, he is what is wrong with HS sports. That young man does not need that fat man running interference for him. I hope he gets it resolved for his sake...and family. I cannot see him coming here; nothing against him, but his heart is just not here....and that is ok, I want to see him go somewhere and do well. Good luck young man!!!!

CoCane you nailed it!

Question than what was the late 90s canes.....cause their wasnt many "highly rated" kids in those classes....JW

If what that caller said was true, then we just need to rewind the clock back 400+ years, and go back to slavery. And don't get me wrong, I know black coaches do it to, but this one here is just disgusting.

The caller was me hehe. AC was ours Ohio can vouch for this, he was flipped for more dough then a dougnut factory, what the NCAA paid Perez is chump change compared to the mobey that exchanged for three guys today, real talk.

Koop &Crowder were laughing at Sileo and Luke all afternoon about their delusional nonsense!

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | February 06, 2013 at 07:59 PM


There might actually be something to this "delusional nonsense."

As we all know, academic standards have been rising dramatically at The U. That's not just me saying this (or students and friends of mine who either study at or went through the admissions process at The U); US News has also taken notice.

And who's to "blame?" Donna Shalala, the same person Sileo, Luke and many others from the inner city pin the blame on. It's no secret she's the reason for UM's recent and somewhat meteoric academic rise this past decade. It's not something you can really "blame" her for though--that's her job! You can fault her for doing well at what she's supposed to do, for developing the school popularly known as "Suntan U" back in the 80s into a nationally-respected, renowned, and highly-selective academic institution.

The only problem is that higher the academic standards at UM, the harder it will be for kids from Miami, especially from the so-called "inner city," to get into the school and to succeed once there. This is because M-DCPS is one of the worst school districts in the nation, and the schools in the inner city are some of the worst of the worst.

I'm not sure what the exact figure us, but a few weeks back I heard on NPR that over 50% of kids graduating from M-DCPS schools aren't ready to compete in regular college-level classes at community college. Community colleges, at least, have remedial classes, something you definitely won't find at UM or almost any other top-tier academic institution (I've heard that some academically-respected schools like UF get around this by providing their players with tons of individual tutoring).

This all affects recruiting because it narrows the So Fla recruiting pool for Al Golden (even more so than it's already narrowed given self-imposed and impending sanctions and thus the added pressure of not having room to "miss" on a signee). To some like Sileo and Luke, it might seem like Golden "isn't interested" in SoFla recruits, when in reality, only a fraction of those recruits actually have the academic prowess to succeed at The U. (And I'm not just talking about minimum GPAs and standardized test scores; everyone knows those figures are not perfect indicators of future academic success, especially when the majority of kids at top schools--the ones these kids will be competing against in classes graded on a curve--score much higher than the athlete minimums). Meanwhile, most of the other schools having major success with Miami recruits have significantly lower academic standards than The U, schools like FSU, Alabama, LSU, etc., and others, as already mentioned, provide some type of unofficial remedial education such as tutoring (and, of course, others cheat).

In the end, Golden has no choice but to widen his prospective applicant pool by looking to other states and to local prep schools for top talent. Luke and Sileo are correct that Shalala is to "blame" for this, except that there's no conspiracy theory or racist institutional pretexts at play; the school has become more selective, and Miami schools are having a hard time keeping up.

Luke and Sileo would be better off lobbying local and state politicians to fix our school system than to go making unfounded, divisive, and hurtful accusations at our coach and president!

GO CANES!!!

THERE IT IS RIGHT THERE!!!

USAFCane

class is good if you ask me, cloud over our heads and all. SEC is is he place to play so expect to lose talent there at he best of times. Looking at today, SEC had Ole Miss and Ark pulling top tier talent, now that is strictly $$$$$. Recruiting is getting uglier every year and HS coaches acting as street agents, even worse.

I wonder if I should start a Spanish language version of Canespace? Never been tried or done before!

Donna's job is to protect kids from the "Luke's & Sileo's" of the world. If you measure her on being a college president she would grade out as one of the top college presidents in the country. UM is the # 1 rated college in the state of Florida!

I'm so sick of watching her get vilified for the football teams problems when the record states otherwise. She raised the academic standards because the NCAA raised theirs. It likely is harder to gt into UM but that bar is so low compared to the rest of the student body that a kid can only blame themselves if they can't qualify.

Those teams we grew up watching were set to self destruct every few years. If we try to follow that model again we will get the Death Penalty! It's a fact that has now been proven at the highest level of the NCAA! Do you think the NCAA isn't working with MLB as we speak? UM's on Double Secret Probation now!

Sileo & Luke are just another problem that Donna and Al have to steer clear of.

Go 'canes!

U know some of U guys should consider writing articles for the blog. No seriously!

Canesfan_1

I have to laugh at Donna Shalala and academic standards being blamed. Neither had anything to do with who we did or didn't get.

Give me one example. If we do lose somebody to our very "relaxed" academic standards for athletes, they can't get into any of the other big time schools either, it ends up being somewhere like Marshall.

Mcginns ale house

Thanks soup and ohio for trying to make nsd fun for the fans.

Hassan

Chud is wanting Mario for a coaching gig in Clevel, I think he stays.

86Cane

OK, have not done this in a while and kept it to the insiders ONLY but felt the time was right to post something for the masses from the source:

1. The DT spot aint as bad as Miami fans are makin like it is. We have a bunch of ballahs at that spot with a full year will be much better. Jelani and Chick will move there on passin situation.

2. All aint dead at this Miami. A very very good class with solid 4 year ballahs. With Grace skill set and 10 more pounds this offseason he will start. As the season moves on Carter and Burns will go from 2nd team to spot starters and you best know that OGslick and Standish will f teams up.

3. These last 2 classes have Miami faster ahead then most think. F n Artie is bigger then I thought lol. Boi a little swoled up. Standish is a tallazz m fer with some big f n mitts. Coley best get that speed up cause this Miami got at least 10 ballahs faster.

4. Fans need to be hyped for this class or break a f n leg jumpin off.
