Can't we just go back to the old days when we didn't have social media, cell phones.....etc. Recruiting is getting out of hand these days.

Go Canes

These stories, when all is said and done, will mean so much more than recruiting.

SOUP

Yes, we agree. See this:

Go Canes

@scott_patchan: University of Miami stopped by #ACC #Canes

UMike

Coach Coley is at it again on Twitter lol

UMike

After getting his first offer from Miami, Kevin Feder as since got offers from Rutgers and Michigan State.

UMike

Im about to get snowed in at work lol

Dude on a Pale Horse

UpNorthCane,

Way to bring the good word!

VA Cane

“What the hell do people want?” one high ranking UM Board of Trustee member said. “Does anyone realize what the NCAA thing did to us? That team this year was an ordinary team, and we went 9-4. It will take three years to build this up, but this is the right guy to do it.”

I tell you what I want.....a D that knocks the hell out of people plays up close in your face man all game and blitzes the hell out of the QB. I want knock outs, carry offs, concussions and Tatumizers. I want to physically punish our opponents into submission so they have to change pants at halftime because they pissed and crapped their pants!!!!! The nerve of someone on a meaningless Board who knows not one thing about this game. I have forgotten more....I want a D that is full of horror and moral terror......not a roll of Charmin toilet paper called U soft!!!!! To defend such a joke is immoral. I think Patchan kid is good....but you can almost feel the hesitation about UM.....he sees the soft meek feel....no ATTACK!!!!

Put me on that damn Board, cause I know my stuff....hell make me DC for $100,000 a year....we would be # 1 in every category.....my 13 year olds are better defenders.....WHHOOOOOOOOO said Flair!!!!!!

JMO

Its nice to know that @TheUEqRoom is finally getting serious about winning National Championships.

Now if the coaching staff would just do their part lol

Dude on a Pale Horse

VA Cane knows!!!

Gotta get back to the days where the nation was scared of us.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Lol UMike. I bet the assistant manager in the Equipment Room isn't there because he's the managers BFF, lol.

UpNorthCane27

The dude, just tryna provide a lil info here on the blog. My boys umike and Ohio need a break now n then lol.

UMike

Saw a picture the other day of Jamal Carter with his short off... dude is jacked up. There will be plenty of talent at the Safety position next year imo

Dude on a Pale Horse

That's the best news we've seen in 3 or 4 months UpNorth. Getting those back is like the cheat pennants from NCAA football. +10 to Speed +10 to Agility +10 to Acceleration.

Ohio_Cane

Doesn't black cleats and socks guarantee 10 wins?

UMike

That and "vocalizing" wins lol

VA Cane

I read the columns carefully for the last couple days.....and I think SoFl kids, CA kids, VA kids.....heck any kid who has multiple offers from major programs are all walking around with that entitlement attitude. I went to school with guys who had big offers, and I have been coaching kids 35 years who get them.....and my cousins coach in Orange County CA and around LA.......we have always felt it. It is a big honor to get that offer from a major....and if a kid is good its really a big deal. I think it is everywhere....its normal to a degree....but some kids take it too far....that's where parents and coaches have to help kids keep an even keel. Many of mine have gotten nice offers....and since I stay in touch with mine, and their parents we try to let them enjoy it but at the same time focus. Its a fine line.....but can be done. Trust me, I deal with a lot of kids and have for a long time now....its everywhere.

Regarding our trio of hopefuls everyone is worrying about....they are kids. FL kids....they saw UM squeeze a couple wins out with a little luck......beat a FL team that while ranked at first turned out to be pretty bad on the field.....hit a big losing skid that was embarrassing defensively....very bad....and then get torched in a bowl by Teddy and Co....a former UM recruit.....yes the first half looked ok....and they were excited by that #7 rank....we're back SWAG BS......but as time went on they had to see what the real deal was.....that bad D, terrible scheme and complete collapse....then just up the road the real WE'RE BACK TEAM....yes TEAM wins the NC.....and you are 18....and highly recruited....and want to play in the big time.....where is your head at? The board guy can talk 9-4 all he wants....but you are what you are.....and a lot of people saw those games on TV....and saw the numbers and the drop out of sight....but I guess that's the NCAA matter.....man its the schemes....passive does not work....soft is bad.....and we are still in that phase in all 3 areas.....its about Hating..Hitting..Hurting....3 Hs baby!!!!

Ohio_Cane

One week from today, I'll be preparing all of my year-long notes and getting my NSD command center set up, as I do every year. Can't wait! (Bart Scott voice)

86, I'm all in for next Wednesday. Be up and at em around 6-6:30 and ready for the day.

*****************************

Im guessing the face to face between Golden and TV didn't go as well as we had hoped.

VA Cane

Dude

I remember when they came out and absolute fear came over the crowd, officials, opponents.....they were hard, mean, unrelenting and dangerous......like gang of gunfighters from the Old West who while robbing and pillaging really didn't want the money and jewels.....they loved the death and destruction.....that's it Dual Armed Dealers of Death and Destruction......that's how mine play D......and O......we want to put you 6 feet under baby....bury ya without pity or emotion trained assassins with no morality or emotion.....that's Defense and Offense....when we learn to coach and play that way.....then we march to the top....JMO

VA Cane

Hey its 15 here....with wind 7....looks like a lot of us are gonna get more cold and snow......wish we were playing....its awesome to hit and hurt in the cold and snow....I love to see that fear in teams that do not like the cold......and inclimate weather the snow.....that's championship football baby!!!!!

UMike

its 19 here, not sure about the windchill, but the snow wasnt really expected. They already closed schools and stuff at 11. But I hear the main roads have been salted and arent that bad, so hopefully getting home wont be an adventure.

UMike

I am ok with the cold, BUT, I have not yet got use to driving in snow/ice.

Ohio_Cane

UMike and VA, pretty warm down there, huh? Lol

It was -9 up here this morning, -16 with wind. Warmed up to -1 with wind right now tho

UpNorthCane27

Def not looking good for valentine anymore, been reading some boards and word is that Hurlie can't even get a call back from the family. Why is this important? well because Hurlie is like best-friends with Valentines step dad....

Im just going to forget about Valentine as much as it pains me, kid is going to be a damn goon on any defensive line. IF we get him on NSD I will do flips all over my office.

YES SIR!

I will be at work that day in Miami unlike today at home so I will need you to post the 411 and UMike to have his finger on the delete button when the trolls come around.

Last year we had over 14,000 hits (site visits) on NSD alone so it is the biggest day of the year for sure!

raizecane

It is brutal here in Orlando....we are talking 68 degrees....

UpNorthCane27

Its funny to hear that up here in Rhode Island were in the low 40s mid 30s, while places down south are freezing over....Weather is crazy man...

I can see my boy Tsully walking around in an all white mink coat with the hat and gloves to match, real FRANK WHITE ish..

86Cane

UpNorthCane27

Valentine said Golden's message was clear. He said: "Let me coach you." #UM has a lot of ground to make up on #LSU

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

Step #1 of the process is going back to the black cleats and black socks. I like. Hate the white socks and white cleats. Look to much like UF.

Step #2 of the process would be going to more retro uni's. 80's/90 's with a little of early 2000's.

Then we would be guaranteed 10 wins! Get er down equipment room!

Dude on a Pale Horse

Its cold in Idaho but the sun is coming out. Will be mid 30's, so sweater weather for us.

UMike

I think I might just stay the night in my office/lab lol.

Ohio_Cane

Honestly, I'd miss the cold weather if I ever moved to warmer climates. Love all 4 seasons around here.

Wouldn't trade snowboarding close to home and playing with my daughters in the snow for anything

We have 60 local kids and this is the reason?

@Manny_Navarro: Travonte Valentine said a big reason #LSU leads are bonds he's built with fellow South Florida kids already there, #Hallandale S John Battle

LOL..Ohio, everyone who once lived in cold weather and moved to Florida used to say the same thing. Now they say..."what the hell was I thinking". Especially when you can be laying by the beach, slamming a Corona (like the commercial) and watching all the eye candy as the stroll up and down the shore line.
