Great....GREAT read Soup! SunLife has its own "charm". And I do not think there is a bad seat in the house. If we could pack it week to week like the Gator game, that home win streak would start clicking! Doubt anyone will break the Orange Bowl record.

Soup,

Great read...

I am no fan of the college football recruiting talk 24/7 especially during the season is basically saying to the current team to go and pound sand. I am all for the recruiting talk after the season and be at a fever pitch for months but when the season starts I am all about the current team and Soup U nailed it man. UMike u do a damn good job posting stuff my man. Go Canes!

Let's be realistic. No trip to Charlotte, no bowl appearance, slightly over 50% wins before this year -- that's middle of the pack HC performance. We all see the potential, and we're excited, but let's see the results! A bowl game every year for 15+ years pays for Beamer's salary. AG will get there, and he'll be rewarded for it.

Continuing:

UM is historically known to UNDERPAY coaches, and I'm not sure the record (adjusted for inflation). This is historical terrority, and I'm also trying to be realistic to keep perspective of what they will pay.

If it were me? I've give him at least as much as Dumbo ($2.8 million).

Alot of myths are out there, liek Miami underpays coaches....
Coker was making more 8 years ago when he was fired then Golden makes now

we paid close to 3 million just to make him go away.


j.w.

Greetings from San Diego, friends! Had two people throw the U up when they saw me yesterday (of course I'm decked out in Canes gear whenever I'm on vacation), and one other Gator student tell me she would have gone to UM if she had the grades. Life is good for us these days!

SOUP

Rock...U got it twisted brotha. I follow recruiting but AFTER the season, not DURING the season. I agree with TSully, in many ways it is disrespectful to the current players on the team. My theory is based on the belief that U should appreciate what you have, not spend time lusting for or worrying about what you don't have.

Recruiting has its own "season" (January-March), let it play out then, not now.

"There is a season,

Turn, turn, turn..."

SOUP

Great read...

Thank U sir!

SOUP

Look I understand I am in the minority on the recruiting thing and UMike does do a GREAT job bringing U the news U can use so I am cool with that. I am NOT asking people here to stop talking about recruiting because I know for some people that IS the most important thing to them.

Gary Ferman from Canesport once told me that they get 10 hits on a recruitng article for every one hit they get on a current or former player so yeah, I get it.

So it is cool...BLOG ON!

Ohio_Cane

Berrios is not a "make or break" recruit, BUT I would LOVE for him to be on this team. His quickness is rarely matched, and would be a nightmare in the slot inside Herb, Coley, etc.

CaneRock

SOUP, I ain't got nothin' twisted. Like I said, recruiting means more now under Golden, than it did under Shannon...hell, more than the 2 previous regimes. And besides, WHO THE HELL! said you can't follow recruiting, and your current team...

Maybe it's a sad reflection of the over 30, can't multi-task generation. LMAO!

Ohio_Cane

Adrian Peterson's son in critical condition after assault by a 27 year old man.

If true, that f#*&er needs tortured for life... Makes me sick beyond belief.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup U are spot on my man. Hassan that fact that Coker was making less than 2 million in 2006 when He had a National Title should have had 2 was jobbed outta the 2nd one, Played in another BCS Bowl Game and won it and played in two other really good bowls any other coach and program in a similar position with similar support that coach would have been making 2,500,000 or more so he was underpaid. Yes the team flamed out in 2006 but the dude was 60-16 at Miami 1 National Title 3 Big East Titles, 2 BCS Bowl Wins, 4-2 overall bowl record.

SOUP

Rock...U still have it twisted but I don't have time today to set U straight so I am just gonna have to let U go on with that delusional thinking my man.

Let me just say that there is a big difference between "can't multi-task" and choosing not to in this particular situation out of personal preference.

That is all. Enjoy!

CaneRock

SOUP, "delusional thinking"?...LMAO!
What part of "Recruiting means more now under Golden" don't you understand...

That comment wasn't meant to encourage you to follow recruiting 24/7, just that Golden is getting MORE! out of the CURRENT! talent in CGs...MORE!than the previous 2 regimes.

CaneRock

And SOUP, again...being a fan of the current team,recruiting, and Ms.Feliciano...IS NOT! EXCLUSIVE!

UMike

Technically recruiting doesn't have a season as kids commit all year round and after the season are in camps and all-star games etc lol, I do not think it is disrespectful in any way to the current players, they know how it works. So a kid that once had a press conference at his school to announce his commitment to fans will now find is disrespectful for fans to follow recruits? lol

I love the team we have now, but every year we lose guys and have to replenish. Recruiting is the future of every team. Now I agree it shouldnt be discussed 24/7 unless its signing day or right before it...but it is definitely not disrespectful lol

Me and you saying PD4 shouldnt return punts..now that is disrespectful lol

Ohio_Cane

Me and you saying PD4 shouldnt return punts..now that is disrespectful lol

Off day for @MiamiHurricanes today. New depth chart will be released tonight at 9 p.m. Media availability Saturday, press conference Sunday.

SOUP

Don't worry, I didn't expect U guys to "get it". I get where U all are coming from but I would never expect U to get me, that just doesn't happen, or something like that.

Rock...we are arguing two different things. I agree with U that recruiting under Golden IS different and DOES matter. His talent eval appears superior and approaching the Butch Davis level. My ONLY point was that there is a time to talk recruiting AFTER the season and a time to talk football DURING the season.

UMike...same thing with U I see? How can U compare evaluating a current player honestly about their skill set (PD4) that is based on evidence and fact to the lusting after a player who is not even on the team? There is no "disrespect" implied or intended in player evaluation just open, honest conversation.

It like telling your wife: "Honey this meatloaf is burnt" versus telling her "Honey, I'd really like to tag that cheerleader over there." If the meat loaf is burnt it is burnt, that is a fact that she has to accept, but you have no right telling your wife that you wanna tag the cheerleader if you are married and expect her to accept that, right.

Which is MORE disrespectful?

WWIN

Shout out to whoever told me to get my rosters from volstopfan14 for ncaa 14, I forgot who it was that told me. Thanks

WWIN

Umike, did you try to call me?

UMike

SOUP..you're WAY of base on that..but Im just going to let this particular topic go lol..

WWIN, No, I did e-mail you back asking when is usually a good time to call

The Dude

SOUP,

That analogy is a little off, but I get what you're saying. In recruiting you could look at it as bringing in talent to join the greater U family, to increase competition levels and make the team better, or at least continue, not as we are bringing in guys to replace you and I really want Johnny 5* because he'll replace such and such player that isn't as good as I'd like him to be. But I think that's what you're getting at. It can be disrespectful, but I couldn't name anyone here that looks at it that way. But I don't know the blog or bloggers like you either.

WWIN

People keep talking about PD4 on punt returns, please tell me when he's had a chance to do something and he hasn't???? I seen ONE time this year when he had a opportunity for a return be he got tackled, besides that coverage has been good on him every time.

UMike

I cant believe Peterson is going to play Sunday..how are you not by your child's side in a time like this?

UMike

WWIN,..my opinion was not so much PD4 is horrible, but that I think Coley give us a better chance at a big play.

SOUP, love the analogy!

Terrance Sullivan

LOL Soup I was thinking the same thing. I call it the wandering eyes syndrome lol. I will put it in a similar way Soup did. If U are either dating a woman or married to her and she keeps always bragging about another guy constantly in your face are U going to like it. U gonna be like i am busting my arse being the best boyfriend/husband I can be and all she can do is lust after someone else. Not Cool. But thats what makes this blog so great we all got different opinions. Go Canes!

Posted by: The Dude | October 11, 2013 at 03:28 PM

Huh, the last coaching staff was guilty of the latter. I remember when they brought the 08' class in the locker-room after the UVA game...and Hurtt I think it was, was telling the current players on the team at that time..."These are the guys that are going to replace you!" I was like damn, these kids just finished gettin' drubbed 47-0, and THAT'S! your post-game locker-room speech. Yeah, KARMA IS A BIAAAATCH! LMAO!

SOUP

Posted by: UMike | October 11, 2013 at 03:31 PM

Watch closely how this is done UMike:

I AGREE 100%.

It is really NOT that hard, U should try it sometime. It's all good! LOL

Old Skool

In other news ...

Deion Sanders has been fired by Prime Prep Academy, a charter school he co-founded, after being accused of assault by an employee. Sanders was apparently upset about the poor class performance by some of the school's athletes.

Deion helped create the Deion rule because he didn't attend classes or take exams yet still was allowed to play a full season and in a bowl game. As a result, state officials rewrote the academic requirements, banning players at state universities in Florida from playing in bowl games if they did not successfully complete their fall semester.

And so now Deions founded a school and gets upset about the class performance of athletes.

You got to love it ...


WWIN

Umike, afternoon time is usually good for me.

Punt coverage has been different for Coley vs PD4. Games have been pretty much ova when Coley gets in on his.

SOUP


SOUP, love the analogy!

Posted by: CalgaryCane | October 11, 2013 at 03:32 PM

I try, God knows I try, but I don't EVER expect them to "get it". It just doesn't happen anymore. In our current culture the need to be right clearly outweighs the ability to objectively weigh the facts.

That is why nobody ever agrees anymore. Look at Washington DC right about now?

CaneRock

Terrance, "wandering eyes" were A LOT! worse than this years ago. I don't know if you were here at the time, but we actually had a blogger that called out Jason Fox!

UMike

So I have 85 wives..but cant look at a few new chicks? hahahaha

UMike

The blogger called out Fox because of a comment Fox made if I remember correctly.

CaneRock

Posted by: UMike | October 11, 2013 at 03:51 PM

Yeah, because Fox said He only gave up 1 sack at UM. I thought Fox was a HECKUVA! LT at UM, I thought that call-out was uncalled for.

canesteeler

I am looking forward to the day all of our LB's are 6'2-6'3 and 235lbs plus. I think we have some of the best wr's in the country, however we are still missing that elite, special QB. I want to see nothing but execution and attitude next Thursday! GO CANES

UMike

CR..I thought the comment had to do with Fox saying he had no weakness or something like that..he was a great LT for us imo. It might of been OGV lol

CaneRock

Posted by: UMike | October 11, 2013 at 04:10 PM

UMike, YEEEEAH!, that's EXACTLY! what it was LMAO! Can't remember which one, but I think it was either Calvin, or Cav that called em' out. MAN!, those were the days LMAO!

AtlCane

I think there was a comment on Berrios announcing.

There's another guy on a different site that's really on top of the recruiting with the inside info. His name is bg1906 and he's got Berrios picking the canes, so that's great news.

Ohio_Cane

Most people have Berrios picking Canes, but USCe has really become a player for whatever reason.

He's one of those recruits where I'd really be shocked if he didn't pick UM.

Early enrollee too, so he'd be here in January.

UMike

Atl..bg1906 used to blog here and we know him well. He is a good dude and always had great info with recruiting. Glad to head he has Berrios coming to Miami.

UMike

Ohio, I think I saw on Twitter that the reason some people have him picking South Carolina is because he visited there 4 times..IDK if that is true.

AtlCane

Yes Umike I was glad to see that. He will be like the college version of Wes Welker. I hope so anyway.
