14 of our 19 commits are from Florida..with 11 being from South Florida. Last year the knock on Golden was he wasn't taking enough South Florida/Florida guys..and now that he is in this cycle people want to knock Golden because there are to many 2-3 Star guys...Golden just cant win

Posted by: UMike | July 01, 2013 at 07:04 AM

The people that come on here and knock Golden are idiots. They take all the data coming out about the program, process it, and then come to the most ridiculous conclusions.
Their voices are fewer and grow more faint each day. I love when the dipshyt's have tried to fire up the negative bandwagon the last few weeks only to be drowned out by all the positive vibes coming out of the program and the blog.
Some people are just always negative. They were dealt a short straw in life and they don't have the tools nor the desire to fix the miserable hand they were dealt. Their comfort zone is failure and they cling to it like a baby sucking on a binky.
Most of them have already started to slither out of Canespace. They won't be missed!

Go 'canes!

UMike

ESPN also shows we have 25 offers to LB's

LB

We can absolutely win big right now. ACC Title Game or bust.

UMike

And for the star whores...this class will most likely finish up with a swarm of 4-Stars with the likes of Nigel Bethal, Treon Harris, Chad Thomas, Valentine, Dixson, Rudolph etc etc...Not saying we get all those..but you see my point

UMike

LB..I agree...with out schedule..even with the D from last year we should win 8-9 games...with a slightly improved D we should win 9 to 10 games..we just have to beat teams we are SUPPOSE to beat

LB

I'm for winning titles right now. As long as Coley can coach & the upgrades in the defensive line come through...

...book your tickets to Charlotte.

UMike

Florida, FSU and VT should be the only games where Miami isnt suppose to win..and VT is ont he down side at the moment, FSU has been overrated and will have a new QB and Florida is at home.

TJL

UMike-FSU may have a new QB but there's a reason Trickett got the hell out of Tally when spring ball ended-he's a stud

Coker recruited based on star ratings-got us real far!!

UMike

TJL..Im just saying we have a chance lol..we got our own stud QB

Is that UMike being POSITIVE? Well, well, well...smack my azz and call me Sally! LOL

SOUP

Miami should be favored vs VT. Only UF and FSU will be favored vs Miami this year. IF we win one of those and the other games we are SUPPOSED to win we are "In Like Flynn".

UMike

SOUP..Im always positive lol...besides I will take a 2-Star kid from Dade County that the coaches have seen up close verses a 4-Star from TX they have only seen highlights of lol

UMike brings it everyday! This blog vibe is getting back the the Sun Sentinel days when we all first met! There's no reason at this point to doubt that Golden knows what he wants and has a plan to go get it.
A blind squirrel knows we need tackles. If UM handles their business on and off the field then they will come. Last week a potential 5* 2015 tackle who UM wasn't even recruiting was showing interest. Momentum is building because the kids feel that if they do a 3-4 year hitch at UM they will have a chance to compete for BCS bowls and playoff spots.
The ACC conference is also rising up. They now have nearly twice as many viewers as their closest rival conferences. They are #1 in so many categories now with the addition of PITT, Louisville, Syracuse, and ND that the next ESPN contract should be epic for all ACC members.
This thang has legs now and is about to start running downhill! UM caliber football is making a comeback thanks to Al Golden and the rest of the athletic department. They weathered the biggest storm in the history of UM athletics and are on the cusp of enjoying the fruits of their labor. All the puzzies who cut and ran like Horcutt will now realize how short-sided and self-centered their decisions have been. The most fickle fan base in the country is about to return in droves as if they never left! It's gonna be a(nother) great ride!!

Go 'canes!!

UMIKE cool man see you in early September for the Floriduh game.

Posted by: SOUP | July 01, 2013 at 11:07 AM

And I think the most likely "one of those", is FSU. We've hung with them for 3 quarters the last couple of years...we just ain't got those horses...YET! Al has done a better job against FSU with controversy, than Butch did.

WE DESTROY VT AT HOME THIS YEAR

I'm not sure about that....if you had said 'a 4 star from Idaho" I would agree with you. But Texas?? Not so much......Texas has some ballers....

TJL

another day....another Gaytor arrest

SOUP

TJL...U feeling better after your brief hospital stay?

UMike

Raise..I am VERY biased towards Dade County kids lol...But I like that the coaches not only have tape, but see games, spring games and see them and talk to them at camp..Even if it is a 4-Star from TX, I would prefer the kids coaches have seen up close..I will take a 2-Star from Carol City any day lol..and besides if Miami is getting a 4-Star out of TX..they must know something we dont lol..There are a couple exceptions like Eric Winston, but that was in 2002 when Miami could get whoever they wanted like Alabama today.

Here are TX recruits since 2002..
Eric Winston
Alton Wright
Kevin Everett
Tyrone Byrd
Kirby Freeman
Lance Leggett
Dajleon Farr
Reginald Youngblood
Jason Fox
Ian Symonette
Chris Perry
Taylor Cook
A.J. Highsmith
Kacy Rodgers
Preston Dewey
Derrick Griffin

I agree their are ballers in TX..but not many come to Miami lol

Don't know if it's been confirmed here or not, but AQM is good to go academically. He's in.

Now we wait on the others.

LB

"Don't know if it's been confirmed here or not, but AQM is good to go academically. He's in."

That's a big +1 for the defensive line.

UMike has been on typing steroids for the past month or so, and I think he included it in an earlier post.

Eh, haven't read much today, just posted it when I saw it.

I saw 39 posts from Mike so that's why I included the "don't know if it's been confirmed". Lol

Canes vs. Oregon State in the Sun Bowl. I actually am surprised Phil put us there, with Clemson vs. UCF in the Russell Athletic. Miami vs. UCF would seem to be a better draw for Orlando. And its ironic as we would have played SC last year in the Sun Bowl, while our ND Sun Bowl appearance was our last.

Ohio_Cane

WR Malachi Dupre with a 41.3" vert at The Opening. Goodness...

LB

It's been a whole 5 minutes since UMike's last post. Either he's slacking, or he's human.

TJL

Soup-Yes thanks had 12 inches of my small intestines removed and re attached--ouch!! eat your fiber!!!

As long as we win a bowl game, they could put us up against Target Security and I'd be perfectly happy.

Per Ariz...

2014 Saddleback C.C. (Ca.) WR Eric Lauderdale (6'2", 200) had a circuitous path to where he is today. Originally from Fayetteville, Georgia, Lauderdale has blossomed into one of the top Junior College receivers in the country.

"I graduated in 2011 and I didn't qualify out of high school so I was going to go to Junior College, but I found out about prep school and I decided to do that because I would have been able to do a year or semester and you get to go to a division-1 school as a freshman. When I went to the prep school (Hargrave Military Academy), things didn't work out as I had planned and I had to go home because the family that was paying for me to go there didn't have the rest of the money for me to finish school. I had to start over fresh at Junior College," said Lauderdale.

The 4-star wideout's stock has risen greatly since high school.

"I had some offers, but if I would have gone to the camps then I would have had more. I had regular offers like Indiana, Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Tulane. They just wanted me to qualify. I've gotten a lot better over the past couple years so more schools are after me."

How has Lauderdale been able to handle this newfound attention?

"It's crazy. I'm getting a phone call everyday from a coach or someone wanting an interview. In high school, I would get a call every now and then, but now it's everyday which is cool. I don't mind it."

Lauderdale admits he wasn't crazy about having to go the Junior College route, but in the long run he thinks it will help him.

"I didn't want to go to Junior College when I graduated and nobody really wants to do the two years and have to transfer, but it puts you on the right track. I know you only get two years after Junior College, but you go into it ready to play."

As far as recruiting goes, the versatile receiver is keeping his options open.

"Tennessee, Miami, Arizona State, Illinois, and Kansas are recruiting me hard. I'm still wide open right now and I'm not looking for an early decision because I don't want to regret something so I'm taking all of my five visits."

What is he looking for in a program?

"I want to see how the players go about their everyday business and I want a good bond with the coaches for sure. I want to go to a winning program. Not necessarily someone who's going undefeated, but I want a good program."

Miami is a school that has been on Lauderdale a good amount, receivers coach Brennan Carroll in particular.

"Coach Carroll and Coley are recruiting me. Coach Carroll is a funny guy and he came to my school twice already. I'm pretty sure I'm going to take an official there. He messages me on Facebook and Twitter too."

Something that caught Lauderdale's attention with Miami is the fact that Andre Johnson is a player he looks up to.

"They've been a good program and my favorite receiver is Andre Johnson so that kind of threw me off when they told me I had a scholarship offer. I just know they've been a good program for years and it's always been about that U."

Tennessee seems to be a school that is sticking out for him as well.

"I like them because I like the SEC conference and I'm from back in Georgia. They have a lot of freshmen coming in so they're not as mature. I think they have like five or six receivers on scholarship so they're in need of some receivers."

**Lauderdale would have 3 years to play 2 seasons.
**He compares his game to Mario Manningham because at 6'2", he can play both the slot and outside.

I remember. Just saying we offered before everyone flipped their lids acting like we didn't even try.

VA Cane

We need to keep recruiting DTs and LBs....that's where we are getting gashed. Hell recruit 100 of each; just keep looking and offering the best ones...based on films and games....not stars. I think the staff has really stepped up in recruiting talent....we just need to build on their skills and continue to coach them. We will do great on O....once again the D worries me.

I do not like playing the Toledos and Arkansas of the world. The only thing I know about Toledo is that is where Max Klinger is from!!!! Actually both of these teams are good...but LSU is a big dog...or are we afraid to play them after that 41-3 ass kicking in the day.....they wore our AZZ OUT!!!!!!

Huge mountain shout to U Mike.....you do a great job, very informative and interesting info!!!!keep it up Brother!!!!

UpNorthCane27

The praise that Kaaya is getting from Trent Dilfer, just caps off my belief in Coach Golden and the staff when recruiting and accepting committments from kids no one has heard of. Kaaya was a 2** now is a 4** and trent dilfer says he makes the impossible look easy...

There is a BIG difference between just OFFERING recruits & actually RECRUITING recruits. Our staff OFFERS practically EVERYONE but how many kids are they actually RECRUITING?

Soup good article! VA Cane I lived in Toledo for 3 years and it seemed like 10! Keep going after DT's and LB's. please no more QB's.
