The Herb sees where a few zeros are trying to flame my boy OGV's tail, well good luck. The Herb personally enjoys his off the wall details of his disdain for The Golden One and yes he does go overboard at times but no different than the Herb's rants about our defense and lack of quality talent at tackle, which I still don't see but I guess we will see by game 2 if Deno has found a way to make those sieves play better.

Any big time South Florida recruit should be proud to stay home to represent the University of Miami a world class University, the no.1 institution in the state of Florida on one of the most beautiful campus in North America.
A university with the best football program in the last 30 years and on the rise once again with a great coaching staff under one of the classiest coach in America Al Golde...n.

Unless you don't have acceptable grades ,you have no reason not to play for your world class city at Miami...

Duke Johnson knew that all the way but Duke is an intelligent man proud of his city and where he is coming from. A very humble superstar who knew all the way that the U is the best fit...No BS...no recruiting drama, good maturity and the man is in a class by himself.

Home for my city...

Prediction: by week 5 the canes will be in the top 10 and everyone will be singing their praises. Very few recruits will flip from other schools to join the canes but the canes will get their share and have a top 5 class I do predict that some bloggers will flip from Golden-haters to Golden-lovers and the canes will win the ACC. It mah sound a too optimistic, but I have seen this team grow over the last two years to finallh believe they are ready to take that step. They have the players and the coaches to beat every team on their schedule and I believe Golden and the stars on the team will not disappoint us this year.

SOUP, the whole complaint is passe and I'm moving on for the foreseeable future with this topic. The phrase, "I think," doesn't imply anything other than conjecture on my part from what available information I have on hand. Asking for proof of an opinion is intellectually lazy and/or dishonest, just scan and ignore if you don't like it and stop whining like a soft tape starlet.

Not surprised by these jits going to Floriduh has been doing it for years much like Texas usually winning the Recruiting National Title but for all the recruiting prowess only having 3 Titles in Florida case and 4 in Texas case equals underachievers. Jits will always go to Florida one because its the state school, its in the SEC, and well U can figure out the rest but despite all of that we have more titles and has the head to head advantage on them. Go Canes. F the Crocs.

Here's something to make Twitter even less relevant

Socialbots. These automated charlatans are programmed to tweet and retweet. They have quirks, life histories and the gift of gab. Many of them have built-in databases of current events, so they can piece together phrases that seem relevant to their target audience. They have sleep-wake cycles so their fakery is more convincing, making them less prone to repetitive patterns that flag them as mere programs. Some have even been souped up by so-called persona management software, which makes them seem more real by adding matching Facebook, Reddit or Foursquare accounts, giving them an online footprint over time as they amass friends and like-minded followers.

Go Chad Go!

“For the next four years, I’ll be attending the University of Florida,” Lammons said during the broadcast. “[Florida has a] great coaching, great facility and that’s just somewhere I feel comfortable.”

Lammons, who narrowed his list on Saturday to South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama, picked the Gators over reported offers from more than 15 schools total including the University of Miami.

Lammons credited his high school coach Steve Davis, and University School coaches and former UM players Chad Wilson and Kevin Beard for helping him along the way.

“They just been like father figures [to me],” Lammons said. “Just keeping me on the right path and just leading me where I need to go.”

OGV, ur an alumnus not an alumni (supposedly), you douche.

orange 'n green in the vein

It's almost impossible to 'trash' a QB who has never stayed within a two scores final score of a top 25 team as a starter in his career, nor can you trash him when you mention what his own coach says he needs to improve, unless you want to say the coach is trashing him in the first place.

Go have your all important (to you and few others) 'number 1 fan' competition somewhere else for all I care, as I told you before and you still can't read and comprehend when this began with you taking offense to nothing more than an opinion posted on the internet, I'm an alumni, not a fan, so I can type whatever I like for whatever reason I like because again, I paid for the right to do so. Your excuse for being tired, intellectually lazy, and a douche who can't handle reading what doesn't make you feel good about your fan-hood is that you're trying to out fan someone, not valid logic in the least.

Third season seems plenty of time to install the entire playbook, because what was in there has been diagnosed and isn't going to take the team anywhere as we've seen.

Duke Johnson went in the top 10 of my fantasy college draft yesterday. CBS had him rated the third best running back in the country.

Have to say, loved drafting Duke last year when no one had a clue of who he was. CBS had no data on him!

UMike

For the eighth straight year, the University of Texas collected the most royalties of any college or university represented by the Collegiate Licensing Company, whose clients include all the major schools except Ohio State, Michigan State, University of Southern California and Oregon.

SEC schools dominated the top 10 in royalty rankings released by the company on Monday.

The University of Alabama came in second, followed by Kentucky (5), LSU (6), Florida (7), Georgia (8) and Arkansas (10), which broke the top 10 for the first time. Notre Dame (3), University of Michigan (4) and UNC (9) rounded out the top 10.

The list, which represented royalties on the $4.6 billion annual college merchandise business, reflects money collected by schools on sales of gear from July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013.

Schools that saw a rise in the royalty rankings include Notre Dame, which went from ninth last season to third after playing in the BCS title game.

Texas A&M, thanks in part to an 11-2 season in its first year in the SEC and quarterback Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy, jumped from No. 19 to No. 12 over the past year, and University of Louisville moved from No. 32 last year to No. 25 thanks to the success of its championship men's basketball licensing program.

The biggest slide in merchandise royalties was Penn State, likely due to the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Penn State dropped from 10 to 12 last year and fell seven more spots this year to No. 19.

Nike was the No. 1 apparel licensee among college teams, while EA Sports, whose college game is the subject of two current lawsuits brought by former players, was the top non-apparel licensee. Although the NCAA recently announced it would take its name off the game, CLC says it will continue to license the school logos for future games.

CLC is an affiliate of IMG College, which is owned by sports conglomerate IMG.

The Gators have a decent OL they have 3 guards projected to go in the draft. http://walterfootball.com/draft2014OG.php
Green is projected higher then Seantrel at OT http://walterfootball.com/draft2014OT.php

The Gators have a talented team but these type of rivalry games come down to focus and QB play. I think our big experienced OL will keep Stephen Morris upright long enough for him to generate some drives and score enough points. I also think that playing a noon game on the road in Miami is going to tough, Miami has an extra day to prepare because we have a Friday game to open our season at home. Also we have a new OC so no one knows what plays he is going to throw out there

Georgia Tech opens at home against Elon. The Yellow Jackets then begin a stretch of 4 straight conference games that includes road games at Duke and Miami, along with home games against North Carolina and Virginia Tech. Then comes a tough trip to Provo to face BYU. Home games against ACC newcomers Syracuse and Pitt are sandwiched around a trip to Virginia. The Yellow Jackets travel to Clemson before home games against Alabama A&M and rival Georgia to close out the season.

Outlook

Lee is a good quarterback but who is he going to throw the ball to? The wide receiver position is the biggest question even though it is a run first offense. In the last several seasons, Georgia Tech has produced NFL star receivers Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, and Stephen Hill. So the offense needs a star receiver to function at it’s highest level. On defense, a lot of talent returns, but it might take a few games to adjust to the new 4-3. The schedule isn’t too demanding with two games against FCS schools. Georgia Tech should contend for the Coastal division title with Virginia Tech in a rebuilding year. However, Georgia Tech has gone 21-19 in the last 3 seasons and another season around .500 could mean the end of the Johnson era. This team could win 8 games if the chips fall right, but any more would be difficult.

CaneRock

I dont think any of the 3 are a big lose, especially considering the class we already have.

Posted by: UMike | August 12, 2013 at 12:18 PM

Like hell LMAO!...Lane is a STUD!

But nevertheless, I like Trayon Gray and Darrell Langham. I like Gray's size, He reminds me of Anquan Boldin. I like Langham's length, reminds me of Streeter.

Where we need to pick it up in recruiting is RB, we need another stud back there with Duke. I like what I'm hearing about Edwards, but we need another homerun hitter back there.

KNOW THY ENEMY:

2013 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets College Football Preview

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Head Coach: Paul Johnson
2012 Record: 7-7 overall, 5-3 ACC Coastal
2012 Bowl Result: Beat USC 21-7 in Sun Bowl
2013 Returning Starters: 7 offense, 8 defense

Odds to win 2014 BCS Championship Game; 350/1
Odds to win 2013 ACC Championship Game: 21/2
Odds to Win 2013 ACC Coastal Division: +320
Regular Season Wins: over 8 -125 / under 8 -115

Last season, Georgia Tech had a forgettable .500 season under coach Paul Johnson. The Yellow Jackets did technically win the ACC Coastal Division but only because North Carolina and Miami weren’t eligible. Georgia Tech was up and down all season starting off the season 3-5, including heartbreaking overtime losses to Virginia Tech and Miami and head scratching blowout losses at home to Middle Tennessee and BYU. The only wins in that stretch were routs over lesser caliber Presbyterian, Virginia, and Boston College.

The Yellow Jackets would then win 3 straight games against Maryland, North Carolina and Duke, all by 18 points or more. Tech was crushed by in-state rival Georgia 42-10 in the regular season finale. The Yellow Jackets were a heavy underdog against Florida St in the ACC Championship game, but Georgia Tech hung around in a tight 21-15 loss. Tech had to get a special exemption from the NCAA to play in a bowl game as they had a losing record. The Yellow Jackets would defeat a disinterested USC team 21-7 in the Sun Bowl to finish 7-7.

FROM BLU'S BLOG:

Anthony Brown, DE, 6-3, 225, Miami Killian: One of the biggest off season moves was by a player that many had never heard about. But after a solid junior season and spring at Miami Archbishop Carroll, it is evident that this is one of those senior prospects who have the chance to perhaps make a very good team – better! Brown is a quick, strong pass rusher who solidifies an already quality defense.

Demetrius Jackson, DE, 6-5, 220, Miami Booker T. Washington: Even though he has already committed to Miami – with a strong offseason, this one-time basketball standout has already proven what he is all about after solid spring game – where he was virtually unstoppable. Jackson is indeed a player who has the chance to be very special this year – on a defense that was already as good as you get.

MORE FROM THE HEATHER AT ESPN:

When Virginia Tech opens the season against Alabama, the Hokies will be facing a Heisman contender in quarterback AJ McCarron and a preseason All-American in receiver Amari Cooper.

With true freshmen playing in the secondary.

Not exactly an ideal scenario, but one the Hokies have a few weeks left for which to prepare. First came news that starter Antone Exum is not fully recovered from a knee injury he sustained in January. Now, Donaldven Manning has decided to transfer, leaving the Hokies with true freshmen Brandon Facyson and Kendall Fuller to man the cornerback spot opposite Kyle Fuller.

The other big NCAA training program involves beefing up the enforcement staff’s investigative chops:

“There are those who believe in the membership that our staff members could benefit from better training in investigative techniques and interviewing techniques,” Duncan said. “We are going to provide that training so that a good investigation will be done timely and professionally, though I’m not suggesting that doesn’t happen now.”

This makes sense given the series of high-profile departures from the enforcement staff. A lot of investigative experience was lost. While the NCAA has done a lot to prevent the loss of large amounts of institutional knowledge at the same time, that experience cannot be stored in a database.

As the enforcement staff rebuilds, it needs a mix of trained investigators and experience athletics professionals. But everyone needs to know the basics of both how to run an investigation and how an athletic department works. It appears the goal of these two programs is to make sure that the entire enforcement staff has that baseline of knowledge.

More than the guy who offered him a scholarship when most big time programs were going to pass? With no more proof backing that up than that's what you think?

I hear stories about Morris hosting parties after losses and not being perturbed about the final score in the slightest.

\\\\\\\\\\

So now you're quoting bull$hit rumors with no context, which you have no idea whether her they're true or not. Way to trash our starting quarterback!

Let's be factual also. Morris is on this team because Whipple recruited him and wanted him, not your hero.

You are a sad pathetic excuse for a fan, constantly trashing the coaches and players.

Your pathetic act has run it's course, if you hate this team, its coaches and its players so much, just go away or be a fan of some other team.

Positionally, I care about defense due to the weakness.

The one position I've never worried about at UM is tailback. Even with terrible coaching we had folks like Gore, Moss, Javarris James, Cooper, & Berry who were still productive despite it all.

KNOW THY ENEMY:

Today we’re looking at Pitt as the Panthers enter their first season in the ACC:

Pittsburgh Panthers

Coach: Paul Chryst (6-7)

2012 record: 6-7 Big East

Key losses: QB Tino Sunseri, RB Ray Graham, RB Rushel Shell, LB Todd Thomas, C Ryan Turnley, S Jarred Holley

Key returnees: WR Devin Street, DT Aaron Donald, S Jason Hendricks, CB Lafayette Pitts

Newcomer to watch: Freshman running back James Conner. The rookie is already getting significant reps at tailback through one week of camp, and Pitt’s running game is looking for answers (see below). Conner rushed for nearly 1,700 yards (averaging more than 10 yards per carry) as a high school senior. He is a big body, but has opened eyes with his athleticism and feet.

Biggest games in 2013: Sept. 2 vs. Florida State; Oct. 12 at Virginia Tech; Nov. 9 vs. Notre Dame; Nov. 29 vs. Miami.

"I'm pretty sure he hates to lose more than your hero Shannon.

Also, something that the coach, who you clearly hate, said a couple of years ago is getting twisted into basically saying Morris is not a winner.

Take your sad, tired pathetic act out of here. I think most people are completely disgusted with your ongoing, spiteful hatefest towards this coaching staff and team.

More than the guy who offered him a scholarship when most big time programs were going to pass? With no more proof backing that up than that's what you think?

I hear stories about Morris hosting parties after losses and not being perturbed about the final score in the slightest. But hey, you let Six do your thinking for you regarding what I think/believe/feel based on a guy who's never met me in person and has only read keystrokes on the internet it appears, so you're sadder and much more tired as well as lazy on top of that. Great combination.

You and your buddy last night need to really learn to scroll and not read if you both think you speak for 'everybody else' except yourself and get so perturbed that people don't wave the pompom's furiously enough for your liking at every opportunity. As an alumni of this university I'll continue to not only use my computer the way I see fit, not the way you wish I would, and make my opinion known about it because I paid for that right, unless the school wants to buy my objectivity off with some sweet ACC cash for the right price, because I'm reasonable like that, but not cheap and owe neither UM, you, or anybody else anything in that regard.

Now, be useful to 'most people on here' and show me on the D?No! plushie where the bad man ran through the containment or settled into the soft zone on third and forever for yet another first down conversion.

Randy was a horrible head coach and Coker was not far behind. As far as the race card being played if Randy wasn't hired, the race card is a reality in the head coaching ranks. The unfortunate thing is two horrible consecutive coaches set the program back. BTW the Sean Taylor court case was suppose to start tomorrow. It has been pushed back to September.

The NCAA has interviewed Mississippi State freshman Chris Jones concerning Ole Miss' recruitment of the five-star defensive end, a source with direct knowledge of the process told CBSSports.com.

The specific nature of the interview is unknown. Ole Miss and Mississippi State are the only campuses Jones visited during the recruiting process, according to several national recruiting sites.

Mississippi State directed Jones to Starkville-based attorney John F. Perry for consultation on the matter. CBSSports.com left phone messages for Perry on Sunday. The NCAA recently requested to speak with Jones through Mississippi State, but MSU did not participate in the interview, according to the source.

Ole Miss declined to comment Sunday.

NCAA spokesperson Stacey Osburn said in an email, “based on member-created rules designed to protect the integrity of the process, we cannot comment on current, pending or potential cases.”

Mississippi State expects Jones' eligibility to remain intact as long as it is determined he cooperated with the NCAA. Bylaw 10.1, which outlines what the NCAA considers unethical conduct by prospective or enrolled student-athletes, includes “refusal to furnish information relevant to an investigation of a possible violation of an NCAA regulation when requested to do so by the NCAA or the individual's institution.”
