It pays to be in the SEC! The only positive action THE U got was when NCAA messed with Haith(SEC bb coach) approaching March Madness. Suddenly NCAA was falling all over itself confessing screwups. Then the toture tools came back out. SEC rules the NCAA. The rest of the schools sholuld pull out and start new organization to regulate themselves and leave SEC and NCAA to their incest.

The father of Florida State incoming freshman linebacker Matthew Thomas said Monday night that his son wants to attend USC.

"He made a decision for himself. It's USC," Billy Thomas said.

According to Billy Thomas, Matthew Thomas' mother said on signing day that she would not sign paperwork for him to attend USC but would for the Seminoles.

Matthew Thomas could not be reached. Billy said Matthew's mother -- whom he said he is not together with -- is out of the country.

A separate source said Matthew Thomas has not clearly told Florida State that he will not attend there, and that family conflict and outside influences are affecting the situation.

Thomas, 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, was rated as ESPN's top linebacker prospect this year and the No. 6 player overall.

If Thomas, a Florida native, were to enroll at USC and not receive a release from Florida State or the National Letter of Intent group, he could follow in the path of signee Eddie Vanderdoes, who recently switched from Notre Dame to UCLA.

Vanderdoes is giving up one of his four total years of playing eligibility and also sitting out his freshman year as penalty for breaking his commitment.

"No disrespect to Florida State but Matthew is willing to take the punishment if there is one," Billy Thomas said. "He's hoping Jimbo will let him go."

Tito doin work...

2016 receiver Sam Bruce Jr. was one of the many speedy and talented players at the Al Golden football camp on Sunday. Bruce shined along with some other prospects in the multiple receiver drills they were performing.

“It was a good experience, I had a good time out there competing with exceptional players. I got to meet all the coaches and the staff at the university of Miami, got a good chance to have a good conversation with the coaches.”

Bruce Jr. spent a lot of his time at the camp not only showing off his tremendous skills but also speaking with coaches Brennan Carroll, Paul Williams and Al Golden.

“They’re just all about coming to Miami, I like that. They were up front with what they wanted. I also spent a lot of my time with the receivers coach, coach Carroll. I got to build a really good relationship with him.”

The University school product had a great performance at the camp, which led to him landing an offer from the hometown hurricanes.

“It’s a school that I liked growing up. I was just really pleased with the effort I gave which landed me the offer.”

While Bruce Jr. didn’t win Camp MVP for receiver’s, he did win another significant award.

“I got the fastest man award, there’s some really fast players out there. I really didn’t plan on winning that but it felt great that I came out on top.”

The 5’8 160 pound receiver rated his camp experience a “10 out of 10”

“it was definitely a ten; I like the atmosphere, I like how it’s close to home and hope to look more into the school.”

Prior to offering Bruce Jr. had an already high interest in the hurricanes, now that they have offered the interest is increasing rapidly.

“They’ve moved up a lot , it’s really teeter-tottering between FSU and Miami right now. Luckily, I have three years to make a decision.”

Another aspect that catches the speedy receivers attention is Miami’s sports medicine program.

“Yeah, they have a great sports medicine program. I’m going to look into that, as well as a great sports broadcasting program.”

Pete Ariz doin work..

2014 Booker T. Washington CB Nigel Patten is no stranger to the University of Miami, as the rising senior has been on campus multiple times and has been to many games as well. On Sunday, the talented prospect took in the Al Golden Football Camp and was given a tour by the head coach himself.

“The experience was nice. Coach Golden showed me around the whole campus and the new facilities so it was nice. I saw a few guys like Chris Lammons and Tyre Brady. I know Tyre likes Miami a lot and it looks like Chris likes them too. Coach Golden wants me to commit,” said Patten.

What his Patten’s impression of the new Schwartz Center?

“That was my first time seeing the new building. It caught my eye because it shows Miami is more than just a small campus and they’re getting things on the right track with the football team and the school.”

Patten admits the Miami coaches have been on him heavily over the past few months.

“The coaches talk to me everyday and I’m the number one corner on their board. That’s all Coach Barrow and Coach Williams talk about with me. It means a lot because I never expected it and didn’t see it happening for myself.”

The two-sport star (track) does not have a solid decision date set yet, but is planning on discussing things soon.

“I said the summer, but I really don’t know for sure. I’m going to meet with Coach Ice and my dad and then I’ll pretty much go from there.”

The Booker T. corner has a busy summer ahead.

“I’m trying to get up to Tennessee. I’ll be at UCF, UF, and FSU.”

Patten lists having heavy interest in 5 schools right now: Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas Tech, Miami, and FSU

haha...

Matt Elam has called out Florida wide receivers coach Joker Phillips. No, not the Elam who was the most active defensive player last season and was selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Baltimore Ravens.

Elam, a 4-star defensive tackle in the 2014 recruiting class (247Sports), has decided to share his feelings on the Gators coach via his Twitter account.

The first tweet should catch your attention:

Swear Im Done With Joker Phillips Haha Not To Be Rude Or Anything But I Cant Do It
— Matt Elam™ (@FballIsLife69) June 9, 2013

Considering Phillips is the one recruiting the young man, this isn't a terrific sign. If a player truly doesn't like the guy he is in contact with, the school might as well give up and move on to the next guy. However, Elam wasn't done with calling the first-year assistant coach out in front of his 3,000-plus Twitter followers.

Great Dude But I Just Feel Disrespected And I Still Like The School But Just Not Real High On Joker
— Matt Elam™ (@FballIsLife69) June 9, 2013

Disrespected? Did something happen that we should know about? If the nail wasn't in the coffin already, this is a clear sign Florida isn't too high on the defensive lineman's list at the moment. Sure, he made mention that he still likes the school, but players always end up picking the place where they feel most comfortable. Elam has made it perfectly clear that isn't the case with the Gators.

The NCAA is an organization ungoverned. It's an organization high on reactivity and low on logic. Such is an equation for disaster.

That being said, the NCAA is absolutely guilty in the court of public opinion. UM is one of the most hated programs in the country (jealousy), and Emmert and the rest of the crew have an even lower opinion rating.

Hell, they've got less love than Congress. They also have nothing to lose. If they can drag this out, they will. If they can make life harder, they will. The NCAA is a stubborn child, and they'll take their toys home.

Only when an outside body governs the NCAA's actions will they change.

But I concur that UM will probably receive no other penalties. Shalala simply has too much political clout and Golden's tie is simply too powerful.

UMike

LB..I disagree about the last part. IMO..the NCAA doesn't want to just "let UM off"...Maybe nothing stiff, no bowl bans, but there will be something imo

Definitely. But I want to see from now until Dec/Jan. Will be a good study.

Cuz how much can they ACTUALLY change as a player in 1 season? I bet their rankings do though.

86Cane

Now go and do the same thing for the recruits that verbaled at Bama, UF, Tex A&M and Michigan, OSU and ND. Bet U that 80% of their players rankings go UP after this season and 80% of ours go DOWN. Wanna bet? LOL

Fan Support Matters Whether Kids Admit to it or Not....
I read an article the other specifying how piss poor Miami fans are as in when Miami was winning the game vs. the Spurs mid 3rd quarter the multitudes of ppl started filing out the arena...Now this is a NBA Championship game those tickets are NOT Cheap and ppl are walking out like "well we won"....Im from Chicago and I live in OKC and I been telling U guys for years winning progams losing programs all the same players like a winning atmosphere you may suck but having a support of the state or largely your neighborhood means the world to the players....Please Guys I don't live there but whtever U can do to get butts in seats get it done tired of hearing how Horrible Miami is a fan and tht is of anything U have a dominating NBA team but cant watch all 4qtrs and yes we knw blah blah blah Miami nightlife and the beach so dang what get over it tht stuff is not leaving and its gon always be SouthBeach and SouthBeaches Clubs...Fan Support Fan Support Fan Support It Is VERY IMPORTANT..

so who is riding the 12% Bus Willie Will Said No BandWagoning This Season So Ride Now or Forever Hold Your Piece Its Too Late When week 1 is upon us....

"LB..I disagree about the last part. IMO..the NCAA doesn't want to just "let UM off"...Maybe nothing stiff, no bowl bans, but there will be something imo"

UM imposed suspensions, scholarship reductions, two bowl games, and their first ACC conference championship. That's a lot on the word of a liar and a corrupt investigation.

True fandom is a mindset, buy not the only one when it comes to sports and entertainment.

It's like going to the theater these days. There are those who go and sit in silence out of respect for the performers, the other audiences members and the experience itself. On the other end, there are for whom it is just something else to be consumed. They talk, tweet, and if they don't like it, they walk out. There's no emotional investment.

It's the same with sports. You go, you cheer, you support the players whether it's out of respect and identification with the home team or even the sport itself. Or you go, you watch and if you don't like what's happening, you walk out.

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

Did Donovan Kirk choose Miami or CSU to play hoops next year? I thought he was choosing soon.

Also, have not heard or seen anything probably since last year, but are the 'Canes getting new football uni's this year? It was mentioned at the start of last years season but have not heard a peep since.

Posted by: LB | June 11, 2013 at 10:03 AM

LB..I agree with all that, and I personally think we did MORE than enough, I just dont think the NCAA will just let it go like that, not after we exposed them and trashed them..they have to be made to be the "winner"..all imo of course

LB

"It's the same with sports. You go, you cheer, you support the players whether it's out of respect and identification with the home team or even the sport itself. Or you go, you watch and if you don't like what's happening, you walk out."

+1. These true fan statements lower my IQ.

UMike

Everyone has their own opinion of what a "true fan" is lol..for me personally, being a fan, going to a game etc should have nothing to do with wins or loses. My local high school team is pretty average, but the stadium is full every Friday during the season, and I am there to support them and watch no matter what. BUT..fans also have the right to criticize their teams and not go to watch them get beat all the time...still a fan lol

LB

Here's something that hasn't been touched:

There is a database by 247 that "ranks" recruiters. It's influenced by the rankings of players, but it can give you a sense of where UM stacks up.

Coley: #15 (#2, ACC)
Kehoe: #18 (#3, ACC)
Barrow: #35 (#5, ACC)
Franklin: #80 (#15, ACC)
Carroll: #141 (#28, ACC)

http://247sports.com/Season/2014-Football/CompositeCoachRankings

UMike

LB..I think Carroll is a little low on that list imo

Ohio_Cane

Those rankings go by only the kid's "main recruiter" that's listed.

A lot of times the kid commits because of a different coach that's also recruiting him but isn't the "main" guy.

While I Agree being a fan is a MindSet it is also some what a religion and or a dedication...seeRED in Chicago myBULLS best attendance for years upon years fuels that team and keeps the team relevant ie more tv coverage even with BenchWarmers running the court...live in OKC Thunder Games and Owho Games are the Biggest Deals around the state literally shutsdown for the love of the games Ijs I dont knw wht it is in Miami well I do knw U guys have a million and one other things U could be doing and I acknowledge tht but come on guys we have to lay down the excuses of why fans this and why fans that U are wrong Great Fans make for Great Revenue GreaterPlayers and Winning Mystique...Its the Truth Whether U Accept it or Not..

As for ppl riding the 12% Bus as a fan I say again I NEVER even if everyone on the team really did suck and is a midget on rollerblades Believe the U the Canes the Wrecking Machine that was and will again be is supposed to Lose or Will Lose Naive Sure Fan Definitely... I just dont see a winning attitude or pure fan in saying oh we will be 9-3 and say Oh and I am happy I called that...smh that is why ppl say Miami Heat fans are the BIGGEST Bandwagoners in the world No Attachment to a Real Fan Life...Do Better That is All I Can Say..

12-0...daU daCANES RCCF12% Canes and Losing DO NOT Go in the Same Sentence..AT ALL so Stop and Ride the Bus..

RCCF, I think it was Six that said it, but Miami just doesn't have enough current and former alumni to fill up the stadium on consistent basis. WE ARE NOT A STATE SCHOOL! like FSU or UF, or like OU as you mentioned. As for the rest, FYI, the biggest employment sector in Miami Dade County, is HOSPITALITY! So guess what, the people that can go to your games, ARE AT WORK! I get SO SICK! of folks saying we're "bandwagoners" down here, we just ain't got the time,money, or energy for BS!

Account Deleted

No bandwagon here. Been a cane since '72, seen the best and worst of times.

Predicting 8-4 for this season, but if they finish better or worse I'll still be a fan come the following season.

UM doesn't have the student population size, on campus stadium or local alumni support to rival places like Michigan or Ohio State. It's a private school, with much of the student population from out of state.

But in the 80's and 2000's guess who's merchandise everyone was wanting or wearing....

hey guys I wasnt trying to ruffle feathers I knw U guys are die hard fans I knw the stadium is not on campus I knw alumni dont live in Miami heck I see ALOT of U paraphanellia here in OKC draped on ppls cars no house Flags of course but Lots of Cars...I undstnd wht U are saying I believe our disconnect is in the fact that more can be done for the mindset bcuz if the stadium does fill up when Miami is 12%ing then what is my theory right? Are ppl bandwagoning then? and I didn't say CaneBandwagoning I used the bandwagoning to tie in how Miami fans are percieved as given per the Heat nation NOT True Fans at all....but I do undstnd the restraints that hold the attendance back wht can be done to solve it?
I have never seen the campus with my eyes personally and that day will be glorious when I do I just wish everyone could be naive and believe EVERY Year is Our Year..
if U were a coach would U preach to the kids we lookn to be 9-3 or 8-4 because tht is respectable and U have a team full of Veterans returning and an Offense tht will score on anyone...Be Serious Guys 9-3 Not Cool 8-4 Not Cool...U call it be being Real I and the 12% Call it Not Cool..

True, but it's gettin' em to COME BACK! that's the problem.

j.w.

Ohio, Phil Steele is still the best out there, but he has a blind spot for FSU. He had them #1 last year and maybe with the talent they lost in the draft they should have been, but I think he vastly overrates their coaching staff and QB. If you look at the rest of his top 10 surprise teams, I think 1-6 are real reaches. Maybe that's his point, but I just don't see any of them doing much.

UpNorthCane27

Thanks Ohio and the individual that posted it.. I hope to hear back from someone with some info....

CaneRock

And think about it, those probation years had a REAL! negative impact on Miami. The talent in Miami was bananas at that time. Now Butch brought talent here regardless, but imagine what an Unrestrained Butch Davis could've done on the recruiting trail.
Imagine the damage an Unrestrained Miami could've done in CFB.
Imagine how many fans we could've gained during that time.
That stuff MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

UM football recruit Walter Tucker flashes speed at Great Southwest Classic

Miami Hurricanes football coach Al Golden went into last weekend pondering whether Plantation American Heritage speedster Walter Tucker will make a bigger impact as a linebacker with great lateral movement or a bruising running back with breakaway speed.
Tucker might have swung the pendulum toward toting the football by winning the 110 meters hurdles and leading the Team Florida 400-meter relay team to a nation-leading 40.11 seconds at the Great Southwest Classic in New Mexico on Saturday.
Tucker, who signed with Miami on Monday morning, said getting the green light from Golden to continue his track career at Miami played a big role in picking the Hurricanes over Clemson, Tennessee and Georgia.
“Miami said they would let me play football and run track,’’ Tucuker said. “When coach Golden told me that I had the biggest smile on my face. That is when I knew I could make my decision.”

Ohio_Cane

There is NO way Golden expected him to come in and play LB. Unless he's going to redshirt him and give him 1.5 years to gain at least 25-30 lbs.

He's gotta be ST + RB/Slot for Canes.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, the Herb sees where we have offered, every DT in the country a ship. How can we not get at least 3. The Herb wants to know where were all these offers last year?
The NCAA will give us a small parting gift of at least 5 to 10 ship losses. They ain't just going to let us skip to my lou, out the door, like nothing ecer happened. even if we do lose some ships, at least we will be done with those Bastads!

He doesn't expect to dominate. He doesn't want to dominate. He wants to play point guard & hope his team pulls away so he doesn't have to make plays in a close back & forth game. He doesn't demoralize who's guarding him & eliminate any confidence they have in checking him. I don't think he'll ever play with this mentallity. He has a power forwards body with a point guards mindset. He may be embarrassed after this beat down & come out gunning like he did against Boston in game 6 last year but he'll only do it for a game & go back to his true self. It is what it is...

LBJ can't do ish about 16 3s!
The 3 is the ultimate weapon in sports, it's basically a bucket and a 1/2. And when you hit 16 of them ishs, that's 9 LESS! baskets you have to make, that's 9 MORE! baskets LBJ has to make, and it took a considerable strain off of SA DEFENSIVELY!IMO, Spoelstra should've stole a page from what Popovich did in G2, which is...when the other team is shooting LIGHTS OUT!, pull your starters, and live to fight another day. And IMO, what the Spurs did tonight was an anomaly, but if it wasn't, the "CROWN THEIR ASSES!" <------- In my Dennis Green voice.

CoCane, you think LeBron would be that way under Phil Jackson or Doc Rivers? I don't.
