RCCF

so let me get this straight:

Tim Irvin is the nephew and he plays in FLHS
Michael Irvin Jr. the son plays in TXHS
Tim and Michael were never on the same team? or did Tim move to FL?

RCCF

Ohio_Cane

Bethel isn't being paid lol

Da U N Houston

HA, you guys must have never been to Lubbock!!!!! They probably paid him in "Feed" LMAO!!!!!!

And I am sure Tenn. has longer pockets than TT, but O Well. Just wondering! Thanks

CaneRock

Da U N Houston, even if Ice does come, I still don't see us taking Bethel back... especially since JC Jackson is interested. And who knows, we may get a commitment from Patrick Porter this weekend, I actually like Him better than Bethel.

And honestly, I think we pulled Bethel's offer.

RCCF

test... test... My typepad isn't working


RCCF

RCCF

Ok...so Question..

Tim Irvin and Michael Irvin Jr. weren't ever on the same HS team? I was under the impression that they were... and Irvin Jr. is in TX, Tim is in FL?

CaneRock

RCCF, I think Tim has always been in Florida. I remember Him and Ermon Lane, played on the same Pop Warner National C'Ship team together.

RCCF

thnx Rock..so Tim's allegiance isn't as strong to the U as his cousin who has no choice what school he attends lol..


RCCF

AfriCane

How is there no investigation by the NCAA. When Powell twitted that he decommited to FL because he had to feed his family. Isn't that a clear indication that he took money to flip?

Go Canes

The whole Bethel thing is strange to me.

RCCF

Same reason HaHa Dix was back on the field and DJ Fluker kept on with his life in the Alabama money scandal...Blind-eye to the $EC..

his cousin who has no choice what school he attends lol..

Honestly, I'm not that impressed with Mike Jr's highlights. Same way I wasn't impressed with Deion Sanders Jr's highlights LMAO!

86Cane

He might get a "car or a school job" but he isn't getting duffle bag money there.

Gotta drive his family

They didn't give him $$$, just a lifetime gift card to McDonald's.

For $10,000. LOL

j.w.

Powell has had plenty of time to rehearse a good come back for the feed my family line. We're talking about the SEC, cheating is an artfrom there and in that league if you're not doing it, you're not trying. Even Vandy is starting to get on board.

dj moonbat

But still the funny thing is.. despite how horrible our D is, our O was just as bad.

Posted by: CaneSawMassacre | January 27, 2014 at 03:50 PM


No. It wasn't. It was significantly better.

In scoring/yardage, the D was 65th/89th. The O was 33rd/48th.

Was that good enough? No. Was it 'just as bad'? Only if your command of English (or perhaps math) is deeply flawed.

Da U N Houston

Man I went down and seen the game against Central, and he put on a show against Phillips and I believe Phillips is better than E. Lane as a JR.

You guys are spoiled, the football played down in Florida is light years ahead. He might be average in SoFl, but he'll ball out in other places.

And I agree BTW has some playa's so his speed woudl come in handy!

If they pulled the schollie they have their reasons and I am cool with that.

RCCF

sidebar... Friday Night Tykes??? Anyone watch that show??
Anyone see how ALL the teams have a lil CANE in them?? be it uniform, hand signs, slogans, etc etc etc...CANE football is EVERYWHERE..

esquire network I believe Tues 9pm..

RCCF

CaneRock

Da U, thing with Bethel though, is in HS, you can pretty much bump-n-run all over the field...the WRs in HS get MUGGED LMAO!

PS: Look at His highlights, and tell me what you notice...

Go Canes

@NashSports: 2016 Plant City (Fla.) WR Tavares Chase has been offered by Miami. Impressive WR. Smooth with soft hands. @FlaHSFootball @tjchase3

Posted by: CaneRock | January 27, 2014 at 05:09 PM

This is a question for ALL the CSers.

CaneRock

RCCF, I think that Outlaws team has a lotta Cane in em' LMAO! We need to offer that lil' RB that they have, that kid is FAST AS HELL!

Go Canes

Problem with our offense in my opinion was the big plays helped overshadow way too many inconsistent performances.

We'd have a ton of 3 and outs then hit a 65 yd td.

Nothing wrong against some teams but when you're up against good teams you have to put together sustained drives.

Those were few and far between when we really needed them.

Montreal-Cane

Looks like 3 RBs may visit UM this weekend

I have no idea who they are and i don't trust pay sites Lol.

That's my first "That's what she said" of 2014!

Go Canes

It's not fake. He transferred because he thought it would help him EE in 2015.

Central had three just this year.

Wish I lived in FL or anywhere else but here for that matter! Schools shut down again for the second day in a row! Today got to -8 with a wind chill factor of -30 degrees! Its colder than a witches butt up here!!! Go Canes!!!!!

Huge for us, and gets him one step closer to reclassifying for 2015.

Ohio_Cane

Dj, not fake. He's been trying hard to reclassify and apparently transferring to Central gets him closer to being able to. I don't know specifics, but that's what I've read

CaneRock

Well Walton to MC, can only mean Ice to UM.

Ohio_Cane

Ariz:

Not enough for The Work and not necessarily a ton of new info, but I got more confirmation on a few things today -

**Lamont Gaillard will be here this weekend and Miami feels like he is flippable.

**Good chance Scarborough makes it for the official visit this upcoming weekend. No guarantees, but his unofficial was not just a get-away.

**Still no worries about Demetrius Jackson from Miami's side.

**Kaaya has given Miami no indications that he won't be at Miami.

**Almost not worth mentioning Valentine to Miami fans at this point...LSU

**Trending up with JC Jackson.

**Miami believes that Chad Thomas will stick, but look for them to turn up the heat in the coming days. They know that the FSU visit made an impression on him.

**As of right now, it looks like Lenius will be a part of this class.

**Miami is very much in it for Ross. Don't know if they lead, but his interest is extremely real especially after last weekend.

**They aren't recruiting any "back-up plan" types at this stage. The only prospects they are legitimately talking to are legit Miami kids.

They're not mutually exclusive, but I sure hope so.

Jiggafras

Defenses are bad because they are bad, not because of ST, or the cloud, or anything else. Its like a ever changing cycle of excuses for No'D. Last year at Duke and UVA we put up 52 and 40 points, at times scoring TDs off long drives. Our D turn around and allowed the opposition to walk right down the field. Golden rolled out the youth excuses and how much he made the decision to outscore the opposition. This year the youth excuses cant really be use, its because the offense wont stay on the field. Its al bull, not partially, 100% bull.

Our offense were simply terrible under Shannon, time and time again they put our D in ba positions....never have they sunk to the levels we have reached here. For christ sakes we had Patrick Nix for 2 years, Kirby Freeman as a starter and a punter for a WR and our OL was in pretty bad shape....like really bad. Like no talent. Our D had alot of bad performances under Shannon but never the weekly record setting performances by every QB we see now. Stop making excuses, for us to blame anything that the D for the D problems is excuses. Thats how i see it. I don't hear anyone saying Morris was Pressing because our D cant stop traffic in cops uniform.

Does anyone remember the Duke, VT game from this year? Who won the game? Duke offense could not move the ball....in anyway, their offense was simply atrocious. Did their D lay down? No they bamboozled Logan Thomas in Blacksburg. You no why?....because it their job, no matter what the offense does. And they have a competent DC who figured out how to stop VT's putrid offense, something we have failed to do in 2/3 years.

We have had all type of issues on and off the field, but none of it can explain the historic atrocity that is our defense...none of it. In the real world if u reach work late, or fall asleep on the job, u usually get fired. No one care that u have 4 kids or u have to stay up late cooking dinner or cleaning up or running errands or dropping your kids off at school. You get the job done or you're fired.

Before a team becomes good or great, you see evidence of greatness, you see potential. Under Fisch we had shown we were about to take off offensively. I have not seen any sign of anything from No'D. Everybody thats defending him whether with facts or not, is really wishful thinking right now. And do not mention Temple. If u go to sign a contract as a football player and you bring up your stats from 3 years before they would probably cut you.

Remember folks, we are not here defending or arguing why Miami is not great or why we cant be average. People are here actually defending and making excuses as to why its ok to be this bad! I have never seen this

Da U N Houston

I thought the same thing about Walton transferring indicates the "Ice" is leaving.

I think Ice left UM for two reasons (Golden wanted him to stay)
1. He wanted to coach Treon his youngest son through highschool
2. He wanted to help Tim Jr. get situated. He can leave and Tim Jr. will become the next Head Coach at BTW.

So now he can get a spot back at UM. Might get Treon on board too.

CaneRock

**They aren't recruiting any "back-up plan" types at this stage. The only prospects they are legitimately talking to are legit Miami kids."

Like hell they aren't...didn't Gaillard cancel His visit last week...

Nevertheless, Gaillard is a legit prospect, He reminds me of Porter. Hope we flip em'.

YUP!

And you know what, reflecting on some comments Golden has made about the defense..."Bend don't break"..."We can't get pressure with the front 4". That's QUITTER! talk. He might as well just say, that He's gonna concede 35 points to the other team, and play catch up. I was at the FSU game, the "defense" didn't even PUT UP A FIGHT!

CaneRock

And really, Golden can't reconcile "bend don't break"..."can't get pressure with the front 4"...with all those garbage ass stats that He was spewing on WQAM. He can't reconcile those stats with what I saw at the FSU game...He really can't.

Hassan

People joke about this but word on the street is that he flipped for 15k

I know some people close to the situation and it is pretty much confirmed on the street, he has lots o designer threads now but of course he got that for "X-Mas"

Ohio_Cane

CR, Gaillard is not a Plan B. We were recruiting this kid and taking his commitment regardless who was coming to UM. He's been committed to UGA and apparently isn't a fan of Pruitt and his DL coach there he was really connected to got fired so he may flip.

Ohio_Cane

Bo Scarbrough to UM is trending upward. If he visits this weekend like it's being reported, we've got a real shot.

If U haven't seen this kid play, go watch. 6'2, 230 and doesn't just "run over people", but can. He's a faster, more agile Gus Edwards. "Freak" is a good word to use considering his age/size.

http://youtu.be/OY4xWCM_rrc

CaneRock

Ohio_Cane, Scarborough is in the same league as Fournette. Even Weinke said..."He can go to an NFL training camp, and not blink an eye."

Ohio_Cane

Yep. I wouldn't put him with Fournette, but there are similar comparisons. Fournette could go to the NFL right now. This kid needs a year or 2, but he'll be a starter there one day. 1st round pick in a few years if he continues to develop his game

Dude on a Pale Horse

Thank heavens that these HS players can't jump straight to the NFL. It makes CF so much better.

herbieibis

Bama, is stacked at RB already with 3 5-star guys and Scarborough is verballed their? If we can flip him, we'd put him at FB and never give him the ball.

herbieibis

Here we go again, just like last year, trying to find another RB at the witching hour. A whole year to recruit and evaluate and it's down to 3 guys, Scarborough is a prayer, McKnight is down to us, So. Miss & mighty Louisiana Laffaytte, And Solomon Hunter, is being recruited by power house Sam Houston St. & Houston Baptist. This should never happen but this is 2 years in a row. I'm sure there are plenty of capable alternate Rb's in the State of Florida but we have some how by-passed them all and I'm not even counting Scarborough. You want to know why we don't have depth of talent, well here is a good reason, Geeze!

CaneRock

Fournette might be better, but Scarborough is FREAKIER! Not only can He tote the rock, but the kid has some MITTS! You rarely ever see a kid that's a 5* TE, and a 5* RB all rolled into one...SCARY!

WWIN

CSM...U are 100% correct. FSU fans I know VERY well wanted Fisher gone from FSU before this past season. And I mean GONE!

Posted by:ย 86Caneย |ย January 27, 2014 at 11:59 AM

So the answer is...

Be negative about Golden and hope he's gone and he'll eventually win the Ship!!!

TonyCane

Again, one day a recruit will either expose on smart phone video the enhanced Recruiting, or a friend will. It will bust out on social media and will be a huge story.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Bama is stacked at RB for a reason. Ingram, Richardson, Lacey, next is Yeldon and Henry. All getting/will be getting paid on Sundays. Plus they are paying players, as far as we know, we are not. Scarborough will get touches anywhere he chooses to commit to. Scarborough is a freak as O_C said. I will be shocked if we land him, but super happy. Still hoping we get Valentine and Jackson and Harris as I feel like they are guys we're supposed to get. I'd take Jackson over Bethel any day. But Bethel might be really good in the right system. Scarborough would take the sting out of Powell, Cook and Michel a lot.

Dude on a Pale Horse

WW,

That's funny and I think true. Diamonds are made under intense pressure. I like that people are putting pressure on him as he's yet to deliver, but the Florida win makes me really happy. Ultimately, Golden would be golden had he fired Marky No'D after the season, but Golden decided that he's the smartest guy in the room and that BFFs come before winning. He deserves all of his heat for sponsoring and making excuses for his DC. Then he flirted with Penn State on top of it. It kills me when people act like he's done us a miracle job here. He's had moments where you can see greatness and moments where you can see complete failure. He's learning on the job. The admin is cool with it, they just want to go bowling and graduate players, so Golden will never get pressure from them to be great. It has to come from former players (who are starting to question him) and the fans.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Jiggafras,

That kind of talk makes me think you're a Hurricanes fan, not just an Al Golden fan. You nailed it in your post. Very well written my friend.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Go Canes you are right about the offense, the big plays for sure hid much of the problems with Morris and his inconsistancies. Plus the play calling was very questionable. Like Duke up the middle on short yardage when you have Gus and Hagens on the sidelines. Waiting to get Walford involved. Bubble screen after bubble screen. We will know more about James Coley next year, as of right now consider me unimpressed. Whoever the starting QB is next year will have plenty of weapons. Duke, Gus, Coley, Waters, Dorsett & Walford. But they need a commander. A guy that demands more and leads them in preperation and on the field. I don't think Olsen has that makeup in him. Not sure about Williams. There is no reason why this team should be so awful on 3rd down next year, really they should have been much better in 2013.

VfB_Cane

Just to prove the accuracy of SOUP's "dumb and dumber" article, here's another prime example featuring our in-state rivals:
