In other news, my state is under a state of emergency due to a chemical leak polluting the water.

Water hoarders have already assaulted the grocery stores and they are SOLD OUT.

Nuts.

Damn that sucks.

Yeah it does.

Bethel is a player he is small though

@DavidFurones90: Nigel Bethel tells me, despite his decommitment from Miami, Chad Thomas remains solid.

@JNGerhart: I was clear today about Powell: bad loss.

Let me be equally as emphatic on Bethel: minimal impact.

Look on the positive side...if our class shrink enough, we can take the 9 scholarship hit THIS year!

When I lived in Coconut Creek a few years ago I remember this news report where there was this big delivery truck that was driving down the street in the wrong Lane and headed South when it was supposed to be going North that ran head-on into a car driven by a Cook on his way to work in Miami at like 5 AM in the morning.

The Cook was only slightly injured but he hired some big time lawyer from a well known firm to represent him. Well needless to say the guy who was in the wrong Lane and ran into the Cook on his way to work enjoyed excellent representation from the Harris law firm and the parties agreed to come to a mutual agreement and settled out of court.

It made big news back in the day but today with all of the crashes and the Internets and all I doubt anyone would even pay attention to a story like that?

Yoopercane

I guess the coaching circus has cost us a couple of recruits but if those recruits had second thoughts about being a Cane then they dont deserve to wear the U on the side of their helmets. Oh by the way, I would like my glass of kool aid served chilled...Go Canes!

Golden's first 3 years have been right down the middle. Nothing good or bad, just average. I really wanted to like and support him fully, but when I heard this statement,

Heard enough Al, pretend I'm from Missouri and show me.

LB I heard about that on the news. Take care

j.w.

So, three commitments gone in a week and no replacements on the horizon? Not. Good. At. All. It's awfully close to signing day and we're back to fighting with Western Kentucky and FAU again. FML.

CaneRock

I thought Bethel was one of those "Golden Patriots"...OK.

Da U N Houston

Did Powell sign a financial aid agreement with UF? I thought only schools that hey sign financial aid agreements can talk to the kids during the dead period?

CaneRock

Hold up, I thought Powell was already on campus, an EE...

Ohio_Cane

Bethel has been wavering for a month or so. Wanting a Georgia offer, etc. Grades issues have been a rumor as well. Staff not pressing him since he began wavering is a bit of a giveaway.

laquinton

After last weekend Powell said he was wavering. But after golden said that bs on Monday. . He said he was good to go. But the other day. . Tuesday said he wants to wait. Now UF offers and he wants to go there. To be young again...

herbieibis

Have no fear The Herb is Hear and just learned of the no negative comments, well let me give you the positive, losing Bethel, is no big deal, all 165 lb's of him and if he doesn't like our defense, I'm sure he's going to love defenseless Texas Tech. Say it ain't so that Brandon Powell is also leaving, well The Herb is not to distressed about that either, all 170lbs of him. My question is, if these guys were to small then why did we offer them ships? I'm beginning to believe that Goldie must have gotten altitude sickness on his flight back from the Nitty Kitty kingdom.
Without sounding negative, uh where are we going to get any CB's at this hour, assuming Powell was slotted there as well. I couldn't see him playing RB at that weight and you know us Redshirting would be out of the question. Playing special teams wouldn't help him gain any weight.
I guess during next season we will be hearing the numbers are off at Db, especially at CB. That a way to stack talent deep.
The last blog The Herb made a comment about going to spread option and UpNorth wanted us to stay as a pro style because of sending guys to the pros. The Herb's response to that is, when's the last time we had a draftable Qb? I'm all for sending guys to the pros but it's not like we are setting the world on fire with pro prospects here lately. I ain't worried about the pros, I'm worried about what we ain't doing at the college level. I guess we're going to have to wait until Jan. 15TH when the coaches can hit the trail again.

30CINCO

Senior Starting Linebacker + Senior Starting Defensive Line Man Returning (hopeful reports are true) > "losing" 3-4 out of 30 recruits. I use the term "losing" loosely because they are not really Canes yet. They "Say" they wanna be Canes. But they are not yet. McDermott, Berrios, Young ARE Canes. they are REALLY GOOD! Let the process playout.

Think of the positives, maybe we add Harris? Griffin tweeted he will be in Miami this month.

j.w.

We'll see, 30, we'll see.

laquinton

He's right tho. This happens every year. We find some good players late.

Stanadrd Shriver

y all the angst over Treon Harris? Why all the hysteria over the absolute requirement to get "South Florida" talent? Perhaps the fact that many of these SF kids cant get into the university or are high risk to not enter due to academic problems is the problem?

The U and its fanbase mired in the 80s amd 90s need to probably recognize its 2014... times have changed. The ESPN 30 for 30 mythology of Miami football being an exclusive product of the Miami inner city distorts the perspective and outlook of those who follow recruiting.

This team needs more diversity....ethnically, intellectually, regionally and otherwise. We are way to busy trying to recreate a championship past that was never achieved the way ESPN claimed it was created.

The recruiting approach of the U is dated and needs to be reevaluated.

VfB_Cane

Things That Make You Go Hmmm...

Brandon Powell now considering UF and tweeting "Gotta feed the fam. Been struggling for too long."

I'm shopping ... I mean taking my talents to Gainesville LOL

VfB_Cane

And btw, Bethel's choice can not be based on defensive performance: UM stands at #69 in scoring defense and #83 in pass defense, TT at #89 total defense and #63 in pass defense.

So if he was looking for a destination with a D just as bad as ours, he has found his place.

CaneRock

"Why all the hysteria over the absolute requirement to get "South Florida" talent?"

Because we're the MIAMI HURRICANES!, NOT! the New Joizee Hurricanes!

UMike

Funny how some of you think losing Bethel is no big deal. A player is always all-world when committed, and then "not a big loss" when they leave. Bethel may lack size, but he has LEGIT track speed, I mean State Champion in 200M speed, which Miami lacks at the moment. Not to mention he is one of the best players on the best team in the nation which also happens to be a major local program. Bethel has influence. Do not be shocked when D. Jackson follows Bethel to TT. Bethel is already recruiting him and Jackson has a visit set.

This is how out-of-state schools get their foot in the door. FSU is already solidifying their spot at Central with Freeman, Jones, Cook, Brewton (2015) and most likely Phillips since he is close with Cook. They also a have 305 legend in T. Harris at our other major local school. If Miami is going to be successful on he field again, no matter who the coach is, we NEED these top local players from our major pipeline schools.

Dont kid yourself and act like losing Bethel means nothing, because it does. You can also expect to lose Powell today to Florida. Also, offering Harris this late as a QB is really a joke.

I'm starting to think that this staff really doesn't understand these South Florida kids and the influence some of them have. We took FSU's best South Florida recruiter, and we are still losing Miami area recruits to them. The changed their whole staff, and are still out-recruiting us. You can't just offer Treon Harris as QB at the last minute. Harris is a legacy and a local legend. His dad is the coach at the best high school team in the country and one of Miamis biggest pipeline schools. Tell me how players like Gains, Ambruster, Highsmith, Ray Lewis 3, Rosier, Crow, etc etc etc can get offers, but a 4-star play maker who made plays against the best competition in the country cant?

Although this will still be a solid class, it will struggle to be a top 10 class, when we SHOULD of had a top 3-5 class. It was great to get on all these kids early, but if we cannot close it really doesnt mater. The same day Golden announced he wasnt a candidate for PSU, Moten and Jenkins tweeted they got good calls from their coach. But almost a week later Ariz wrote and reported that Valentine still hadnt spoke to Golden.

SOUP, I do not mean for this to be negative, but REAL. You homers can defend this staff all you want, but the numbers dont lie....

Cook
Lane
Rudolph
Dixon
Bethel
Valentine
Klark
Harris
Robinson
Lammons
Holmes
McKenzie

This are just SOME of the talent that is leaving South Florida in this class alone.

Florida didnt make it to a bowl game, only has 20 commits and they already have the same amount of 4 & 5 star guys as us and will pass us when Powell flips.

You cant defend this stuff. The NCAA excuse is gone. I know the homers will come after me for this, but I wont even reply to any of their comments because their is no talking to them. Everything I said is REAL, not negative, not coach bashing, but real information.

Now back to staying away...

A solid commit who was an EE, gets an offer at the last second and flips (which he will)... Bought and paid for with that $EC money

Go Canes

Exactly UMike.

The kid was all Canes, all day, every day.

Then poof, he's gone.

UMike

The ONE and ONLY 4-Star commit TTU has just happens to be from Miami and flipped from Miami.. sad lol

UMike

Maybe we should also be worried that Darling and Yearby arent enrolled yet. Powell was "suppose" to already be on campus.

Account Deleted

As I predicted last week, the Golden Soap Opera will cost us a few recruits and probably a top 10 or 15 class ranking.

For sure we'll lose a few along the way, but the drama and bowl game loss didn't help.

SinisterCane

Good Morning Spacers

Reasons to be concerned with this recruiting class, yes. Knowing for sure until NSD, no. We will find out..... There are some wildcards out there, too. If we have to compete with SEC $, it just isn't gonna happen.

No dead period for the Gators??? And SEC money to Powell? Anyone knows if the NCAA still exists?

Thats 3, 4-Star players in a week. All local.

SinisterCane

Has Franklin signed with PSU yet?

"Wildcards"?

After Michel and Cook, Powell WAS! the "wildcard out there"...at least for us.

And if we lose Valentine, then that drops a GOOD DT haul, to AVERAGE!

UMike

A contract making Vanderbilt's James Franklin the next Penn State coach should be finalized and approved at a meeting of the school's newly formed compensation committee Saturday morning, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Earlier Thursday, ESPN reported Franklin had agreed to accept an offer to become Penn State's coach.

The Penn State compensation committee is scheduled to meet in a closed session at 8:30 a.m. ET Saturday to discuss a "matter of compensation," PSU spokeswoman Lisa Powers said. She added that the person whose contract is being reviewed "has not been publicly identified at this time."

Sources told ESPN that individual is Franklin, who spent the past three seasons at Vanderbilt.

Powers said that following the meeting, a brief public session would be held at 9 a.m. The committee members are chair Linda B. Strumpf, Kathleen L. Casey, Mark H. Dambly, Karen B. Peetz and Paul H. Silvis.

Vanderbilt athletic director David Williams, meanwhile, told The Associated Press on Thursday night that he exchanged text messages with Franklin, and Franklin "basically said that he is our coach. He hasn't made a decision."

Williams earlier Thursday told The Associated Press that Franklin characterized reports that he had accepted a job offer as "inaccurate." Franklin technically would not officially accept the Penn State job until the contract was approved Saturday, a source told ESPN.

Franklin was given a contract extension in December 2012 designed to keep him at Vanderbilt for years to come. Asked whether the Commodores have worked to restructure Franklin's deal since the end of this past season, Williams said they have an ongoing process to remain competitive.

Penn State interim coach Larry Johnson said Thursday night that he hasn't been told anything about his future.

"I'm still the interim coach until a new coach is named," Johnson said. "As of right now, I'm continuing to do my part."

Sources said Franklin met with Penn State officials Wednesday night in Destin, Fla. He would succeed Bill O'Brien, who was introduced as coach of the Houston Texans last week after two seasons with the Nittany Lions.

Earlier this week, ESPN reported that Penn State's leading candidates were Franklin, Miami's Al Golden and former Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Shefter also reported that San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman interviewed with the committee.

CaneRock

UMike, it's funny...but at first the pro-Golden crowd said that Bethel was one of the 4-7 that would've bolted, if Golden bolted. Now they're saying it's because of grades, or He's too small. Where dey do dat at!

UMike

CR, we already lost Valentine. That Golden stuff is just an excuse. If he was worried about Golden leaving, he could of waited a day or two to see, but he jumped ship the first chance he got.

Powell is not a back up plan, kid is a legit 4-star player and Browards player of the year. There will be no "wild cards" or big additions from now until signing day. Jackson will either stay at Florida or flip to FSU which seems to be the thinking a the moment.

If we do gain anyone, it will be the plan C guys like Edgar Cerenord. Still a solid class, but not what it should/could of been. Bethel is pushing hard for D.Jackson to join him at TTU, and he now has a visit set.

Also, I will believe the Griffin news when it actually happens. We have heard "he is close" and "this month" for like 8 months now.

UMike

CR.. I know.. they got to find any reason besides this staff lol... For he record Bethel said on Twitter just days ago he was up to 180 lbs, but who cares he is FAST and knows how to cover and has great ball skills. Ask FSU how having those small DB's worked for them. Bethel NEVER had grade issues!

UMike

I think that lost to Louisville is starting to show its results. We win that game and we have a 10 win season, a bowl win and maybe more importantly, we show the local kids the home team can win. Instead all we did was show these local kids they can go to other schools and win big. We let a team full of Miami kids blow us out in a game played in Florida. And to top it off, their QB is a former Miami commit who might be he #1 draft pick.

Miami had the chance to bury all that, bu even with a month to prepare, they showed nothing.

Go Canes

Thinking we lost Powell because golden talked to penny state is silly.

There's something else going on there.

Grades or an envelope delivered to his house are my best two guesses.

Go Canes

If Powell cared so much about stability would he go to a team that went 4-8 with a coach that's another bad season away from getting fired??

UMike

I dont know if Golden flirting with Pedophile U had anything to do with it, but either way the staff didn't hold him.

CaneRock

NOBODY! said we lost Powell because Golden flirted with PSU. Powell doesn't want to come here, because He does NOT WANT TO PLAY CB! And how is it grades, if He's an EE!

Losing Powell to UF, is the reverse of losing UF losing Clinton Portis to us!

UMike

I sure hope we can get some RB's next year. If Walton can moved up to 2015 it would be huge. If Duke stays healthy next year, it could be his last year. And the only real talent behind him has never played a snap in a college game. So RB depth is a real issue... at least talented depth imo

LB

I just saw people in fist fights for water last night. The police are everywhere. Many of these same people tout the very industry (coal) that allowed the chemical spill and will more than probably not be held accountable.

It's such a weird time up here. I'm even reading recruiting news from you guys just to distract me from it all.

UMike

CR I agree. Powell is a play maker. They dont give the Broward player of the year to just any one. He is a legend in that area. Sometimes you lose out on more than just the talent of a player.

UMike

For those that think Miami doesnt need Florida players.... FSU just won a title with 66 kids from Florida on their roster. Every school that wins big keeps all their top local talent, while cherry picking talent from others areas to round it off. Alabama is a bit of an exception because they can now recruit nationally, but even they have 33 plays from "talent rich" Alabama on their roster lol

UMike

Lammons will end up a South Carolina I think...or Wisconsin.. they seem to be out in the lead at the moment for him.

SOUP

LB...if you can afford to might want to take a weekend away from the unrest and travel somewhere safe a few hours away by car where the water is clean and bring a few cases back with you for emergencies like this. You can go several days or a week without food but only a day or two without water! Or U could just drink beer? LOL

For now, I think we're okay. It's extremely cool of you to ask and I'll absolutely keep you updated.

"Remember the 5 P's:

And I'm usually so organized, leave it to Soup to educate and bring me back to reality.

They're setting up distribution centers around here, but they say that this nonsense could go on for up to 10 days or more.

It's madness. People actually broke into my work and hauled off water in gallon jugs so the suits are royally ticked as we're already short.

It's not really relevant to Canes news, but I thought that if I can't be interesting I can at least be entertaining.

LB

I think Perryman from frustration alone should be all-world next year. It wouldn't surprise me if he hit the Butkus...

..."He's undersized."
"Dirty program."
"Al Golden's leaving."
"Bowl loss."
"Lost to Duke."


...blah, blah. If Kirby joins in the party, Barrow's corps will be interesting.

SOUP

LB...in Florida with Hurricane season threatening every year residents are trained (read WARNED) or advised to have a gallon of water for each person in their homes for at least five days. We always keep two cases of 6 gallons each and one case of 24 ea/16 oz drinking water bottles from June to November and then we use it up and replace it again the following year so we are used to that stuff.

Mark my words: There will be an actual war over water, not oil, in the next 10-15 years. And if the whole global sea level rise thingy actually happens and/or starts sooner than later then all bets are off!

I feel better about the next batch of UM's quarterbacks as the emphasis has been placed on accuracy over big plays and arm strength. These quarterbacks move to throw (R. Wilson, A. Luck), not move to run (M. Vick, T. Tebow).

UM has a stockpile of talent at receiver. If the tight ends get the appropriate number of targets along with a healthy Duke Johnson...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^With our luck these last few days, Perryman might flip too LMAO!

UMike

I think to myself how is Florida still getting this recruits. Not only did they flip Powell in the last second, but they also flipped a 5-star DB. They had a 4 win season, BUT, their coach was smart enough to see their weakness (offense), and changed it. I do think normally continuity is good, but not if it isnt working. FSU revamped their whole staff and got better. Alabama is always losing coordinators and wins big.
