NEW BLOG IS UP!

WWIN

Ohio,

That's keef keefin'!!!!

WWIN

If you can't lay down the law in yo own house, how U gon lay it down in somebody else's house?

Ohio_Cane

So, in a HILARIOUS turn, Keef was sent home early on his FAU visit for not being serious.

Apparently, FAU coaches thought they could get him? LOL

WWIN

For everybody saying that we waiting on six why couldn't we wait on Kirkland too, who said we're waiting on six?

WWIN

If anybody thinks AG didn't talk to six about the Kirkland situation before it happened, is CRAZY.

And does anyone know if Ira Denson is on campus this weekend...

Kirkland had till Feb 1, still won't commit and then his coach came into the game.

If you're referring to the "deadline"...according to DK's Dad, it was the family that suggested 2-1 or 2-2, NOT UM.

•Per Manny:

"The confusion here is that not many people were aware they had been telling us things were getting tight with scholarships. We told them Denver might have a decision by Feb. 1 or Feb. 2. We were just surprised and upset when they came to school Thursday and told him they couldn't wait any longer. We thought he would have until Signing Day as long as we told them they were in front or close. But they couldn't wait."

Gamble is playing his ass of for Canes hoops. Big win today.

What happens if Kirkland does commit on NSD? What does Miami do?

So...seems the story wasn't we were first told after all.

Kirkland had till Feb 1, still won't commit and then his coach came into the game.

My view, he was backing out all the way, and AG called it game over.

Credit to the U, they gave the kid one more chance, and he's still not willing to commit.

Time to move on, this story is over and getting old.

Let's find some kids who want a free quality education and a chance to play at the U. Once we have them it's up to AG to get them ready to win.

Because of the poor three point shooting by UM in the 1st half C_1.

The Pimp got things straightened out the 2nd half even with NC State getting on track from three range.

That's why he's gunning for the Odai lifetime extension now that .500 in ACC play is guaranteed. MIRACLES! IN MIAMI!

CoCane

Kirkland says thanks but no thanks??? After walking away heartbroken because his scholly got pulled... Then going up to the campus to meet with coaches... To say thanks but no thanks??? But it's STILL between FSU & the "U"... That don't sound right... Could it be that he really committed behind the scenes but they're pulling a public hoax so he can pull out the cane hat on signing day & throw up the "U". Or, just wanted to vengefully dis the program after being embarrased. Who knows these things. We'll see on NSD. It'll be interesting...

Canesfan_1

OGV - why was the pimp hand sheathed until late in the game?

Either way, the hand was stinging and hard at the end.

semperfi_cane

Soooo Manny just tweeted that there WAS an agreement in place between Kirkland's family and Miami to give them an answer by Feb 1st, but that coach Harris was not aware of it. I would expect some kind of public apology from Harris to be forthcoming for the unwarranted invective hurled at Golden and Co.

NY Trooper

Kirkland tells UM thanks, but no thanks

They tried.

UM coaches met with Booker T. All-American offensive tackle Denver Kirkland Saturday and his mother, but weren't able to sway him to commit.

Kirkland's stepfather Shanton Crummie told CanesInsider's Brandon Odoi Kirkland will choose between FSU and Miami.

A source told The Miami Herald, assistants Art Kehoe, James Coley and Micheal Barrow were among those who attended the meeting. Head coach Al Golden the source said was not there.

Crummie didn't return phone calls from The Herald.

UM still has hope it will land Kirkland's teammate star linebacker Matthew Thomas. National Signing Day is Wednesday.

The good news? Miami's men's basketball team is 8-0 in ACC play. And the Canes still have a heck of a freshman class coming back for Golden next year.

Great tip in by BIG REGGIEEEEE!!! GREAT WIN!!! As good as this team is, they could be better. Imagine if Daniels doesn't leave & Adams wasn't out for the year. How good would they be then??? WOW

usagainsttheworld

NYTrooper dod Manny write both articles?

NY Trooper

Another Manny article was just posted which indicated Kirkland said thanks but no thanks to Barrow at the 3pm meeting this afternoon. In the article Kirkland's stepfather stated it is between Miami and FSU. Which is it Manny?

From Pete Ariz

**The big news for today that is worth tracking is the meeting between Denver Kirkland and Miami, which I've confirmed will happen today and plan on getting information from it as the day goes on. Miami reached out to Kirkland and his family and they agreed to meet with the coaches, which shows me a couple things. 1) That the door has not completely closed on the possibility of Kirkland coming to Miami. If there was no interest from Kirkland's side, him and his family would not have agreed to meet with Miami. And 2) Miami had a change of heart about something. Whether it's that they feel like they handled the situation wrong and just want to smooth things out, or if they want to grant him another opportunity to commit to Miami on signing day, something triggered this to happen, but it's tough to pinpoint exactly what it was. If, and that's a big "if", things can be worked out between the two sides and Kirkland would have his offer again, this would put Miami back into a better spot with Matthew Thomas, who I don't feel confident about at the moment.

**I posted earlier today that Miami's visit with Keith Bryant yesterday went well, according to Bryant himself. Al Golden, Brennan Carroll, and Jethro Franklin were the three coaches that sat down with him. Tito Benach and I have both been told by separate people with knowledge of the situation that while Bryant is leaning towards Florida State, and has been for a while, that his mother is on Miami's side and wants him closer to home. This is an interesting development because Bryant told me back in November that his mom was telling him to get out of South Florida because it would help him "grow up." There were also quotes from Bryant's mother a few weeks back, stating she wanted him at Miami, so this latest info goes along with that.

**As I posted a few hours ago, the LSU side continues to feel very strong about holding onto Rashard Robinson. A person I spoke to earlier who has spoken to Rashard in the last few days asked him why he has been telling local media that Miami is in it, and Robinson responded by saying that he didn't want to burn any bridges and show respect for the hometown team. This same person told me there was no credence to a rumor that LSU was "on the verge" of pulling Robinson's offer because of his flirtation with Miami. Apparently Robinson has never expressed to the LSU staff that Miami was a threat, but I am still not counting out a switch from happening because Miami still feels there is a legit shot with him.

**I plan on catching up with Augustus Edwards after his visit this weekend, but I'm told it's going well so far. I still believe that Miami would take both him and Collins. The 'Canes were in a good spot with him before this weekend so I suspect a solid visit will put Miami in the driver's seat.

Go Duke!!

Road runner beep beep!

Pens won and Canes won. Now the Pens need to follow-up today with a win tomorrow. Ohio, how they come out against the Caps will be telling on the pulse of this team right now. Sid played pre-concussion today for sure

Unreal finish!

Go 'canes!

LOL Memnoles welcome to the blog, your posts have been really good.

11 would be big. Its like a perfect storm no pun intended. We are starting to really make a believer the nations been put on notice folks. Im excited, ohio and umike have got me frothing at the mouth. I cant wait for wed

JCane

Not only an amazing win on a poor 3 point shooting night on the road, but lots of the 13 teams ahead of them in the polls losing over the last few days and today (Oregon and Butler getting blasted a few d/a, and Syracuse and Kansas getting taken down today). I don't know that the U will leapfrog over KU with today's win and their loss, but moving up to at least #11 is a strong possibility if no other top teams go down before the polls.

Big REG is a beast big win. Now lets go get talent nsd. What a time to be a hurricane!!!!!

Wow the end of that game. Just wow.

Thank you Terrance, now back to my obvious anti-bias against that guy who can't win on the road at UM's other revenue sport and his pet mutant college dorm catfish from Philly . . . wait, I meant mythical, not obvious, yeah.

TonyCane

I've said it before, but IF the Canes get to a dominant position in college basketball look out. All the keys needed to rule that sport are in place. The sweet on-campus arena. A beautiful campus, which makes Duke or Florida State look like barren wastelands. And a pool of local talent that just need a reason to consider the U.

And once they do, look out.

IT HAS BEGUN!

Montreal-Cane

Great Canes win...We were able to appreciate the great coaching from coach L...His game plan was good along with the time outs always at the right time.

Terrance Sullivan

8-0 in the ACC 17-3 overall. OGV u are spot on in your analysis. The Pimp and crew doing the Damn thing. M-I-A-M-l fight, fight, fight!

Montreal-Cane

Wow Soup this hot! "recruits who might like to spend their college years as a student-athlete at "The U": U snooze, U lose.

And, I for one, totally, completely and fully approve of this message."

I love it! More coaches should take this approach.

The Pimp is going to wait just how long to play Gamble at C, Reggie at PF and slide Kadji to SF as his starting front-court, second half of the ACC schedule?

It only took 5 3/4 years but Julian Gamble now shouldn't come off the court unless he's in foul trouble for UM.

we are getting killed in the paint

Ohio_Cane

So now Floriduh has pulled Quinton Powell's scholly because.... Wait for it..... They wanted him to commit now and he wouldn't.

Where's all the flack and hate for Muschump? No one even talking about it.

Ps - he named a top 4 and Canes are in it. Not saying we're recruiting him, just a heads up cuz anything is possible these last 4 days

UM's going to need to get to the line the rest of the way to have a chance to pull this off, FT disparity is starting to wear on them.

mi@mic@ne

the got all their points around the rim

mi@mic@ne

we got to play better d to win

mi@mic@ne

we lost our poise on defense..got to box out

Sarasota 'cane

My buddy is at the Texas vs The Nation game and he said that Ray Ray's helmet has an "F" on it and not the U!! Too funny!!

Go 'canes!

1-13 from behind the arc.

Going to have to change that and not let them start shooting any better than their 1-6, as that's the only reason this game is two possessions right now.

Hassan

that putback was crazy, Our bigs need to hammer them, they are lucky to be up though, We are 1-10 from 3.

No matter what happens in the end with Denver, I feel like I owe him something that will probably be an eligibility compromising gift of thanks for lighting this blob up with some of the good stuff right before signing day.

Well, there is the stuff getting slung by The Pimp these days too.

And people say I'm negative for being pissed the MAC staff can't get their team up for the only rivalry game that matters every year? No, I'm negative because this is what we all have to deal with since these guys can't capitalize on a dolt like Dumbo.

I went back and a careful rereading of your initial post contains exactly one statement of fact;

"The whole basis behind recruiting is working to sign players you want."

The rest of your post/argument for your opinions is just that, opinions, so when they aren't unquestioningly accepted by Miami fans, don't be surprised. Just like you shouldn't be surprised we laugh at people like you for cheering for a team that got lapped by falling behind the turds in the pecking order in the state.

j.w.

The difference in losses is hardly anyone in the media picked UM to win 6 games, while quite a few gad FSU as a title contender. So, the criticism is that FSU underachieved wirh a good team.
AS for Kirkland, I hope the kid does well. Really, even if he goes elsewhere.
