NEW BLOG IS UP. JUST SAD...

CaneRock

Just sad man, I really thought JoJo would pull through.

TokenCane on CIS:

Al Golden as a man
I was working in the JMH/UM hospital area today and came across a bunch of Canes coming to see JoJo today and I left fairly late and I looked to my left while sitting at the light at 12th ave and I see Al Golden walking around. I call him over since we know each other and his eyes were bloodshot red obviously from crying. We spoke about JoJo and he told me he just passed and that he needed to go get some fresh air and went for a walk. The emotion this man spoke with about JoJo and that every player is like a son to him was what a parent wants from a coach for their son.

We spoke for about 5 minutes and parted ways but I then thought about when Malcolm Lewis was injured and there is not a doubt in my mind that this man truly cares for each and everyone one of his players. Im happy to know this is the kind of man that is leading my team.

CaneRock

RIP JoJo.

$EC TRAMPLES the NCAA...

The Petrino hire makes the NCAA a BIGGER! joke. A guy can cheat on His wife, lie about an accident involving His mistress, and then turn around and a get an annual contract worth $3.5M...but a kid takes a free meal, and He's kicked outta school. Talk about a plantation mentality.

I believe that the colloge baseball teams that get to play a major league team in an exeboition game are compensated handsomly for it,which makes sense.

In case you hadn't noticed, nobody, and in mean nobody, takes the NCAA seriously anymore, as far as college football goes.

Our administration has to do the song and dance, play along, especially when it comes to football, because of our recent history. We'll say all the right things, fill out all the right paperwork, but at this point it's all just bureaucracy.

They have no bite. The SEC bends over the NCAA on a regular basis.

College vs. MLB seems like a major NCAA infraction the NCAA should investigate themselves for stupidity.. if NFL players train with theU kids we'd have to report that tho correct? if the HEAT players were tutoring or scrimmaging the the CANES that would be an issue Im sure.. the NCAA and their rules I swea4moses are the Worst..

I don't get it either O_C. It seems like a stupid way for a college kid to get injured.

Ohio_Cane

I don't understand these college baseball teams playing MLB teams... Is it to make the college team look bad, or to make the MLB team look bad?

Does the MLB team actually try? If so, how awful do they look when/if it's a close game or they lose?

Matt Porter ‏@mattyports 8m

Good news: Jackson Memorial Hospital spokeperson tells AP former #Canes S JoJo Nicolas upgraded to stable condition. http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com

Matt Porter ‏@mattyports 3m

Let me clarify my last tweet w/ more accurate info. "Stable" means "no change in condition." So, we really don't know how Nicolas is doing.

UMike

From Ariz,,

A loaded defensive backs class in the 2015 recruiting cycle will cause some talented prospects to not receive as much exposure as others. 2015 CB Antonio Howard (5-11, 165) is one of those names to watch as we enter the heart of 7-on-7 season. Howard played last year at Jackson, but recently made the move to Miami Northwestern for his senior season.

“I feel like Northwestern was my best move. The exposure is big,” said Howard.

Howard is not shy when it comes to his confidence. He feels like he should be mentioned amongst the elite in the class.

“I’m more aggressive than others and I have a lot of speed. Nobody has ever heard of me, so I feel like this is my year. Nobody can run with me.”

The feisty corner will be playing his 7-on-7 ball with the Florida Fire, who have emerged as one of the top programs in the country over the last few years.

“Competing with the top dogs like Calvin (Ridley), Jovon (Durante), and Shawn (Burgess-Becker) is great. Those battles are pretty good. I’ve never had competition like that.”

His recent showings on the 7-on-7 circuit is causing schools to take notice.

“Missouri, West Virginia, Pittsburgh, and South Florida have been sending me mail. I just got an offer from FAU too.”

One school who Howard wants to hear from is Miami.

“I did have interest in them, but they actually don’t look at me at all. I would love them because that’s my college team. I’m from Miami and they don’t even look at me, but other schools know about me not from here.”

What is it about the ‘Canes that Howard likes?

“I love their confidence and swag. When I was little, I used to always want to play for them. I would watch Ed Reed and Sean Taylor. I always played running back growing up until I saw Sean Taylor play and that made me want to play defense.”

Posted by: UMike | February 26, 2014 at 12:52 PM
----------------------------------------

U can't actually "see" anything.

Ohio_Cane

This just in, Jamal Carter is RIPPED. Sheezus...

UMike

ehhhh... Not sure I want to watch any video of it

Ohio_Cane

Watch this video on TMZ. Pretty sure he's still sitting up while they're cutting the doors off

http://www.tmz.com/2014/02/25/miami-hurricanes-football-player-jojo-nichols/

UMike

CR.. its actually funny you said that because when I was looking at one of the pics that is a full side view, I thought I saw the seat reclined. I thought it was by the impact or from the EMT's though. If anyone sees that pic, they will notice what I mean. The fact that he is not dead right now 24 hours after that is a great sign, stable or not.

Ohio_Cane

JoJo's seat was most likely pulled back after the doors were cut off by the fire dept to be able to take him straight out of the vehicle and onto a backboard. It's pretty common practice for vehicle extraction.

raizecane

CaneRock - your statement is correct. They say most of the damage happens when people see the accident comig and "tense up" causing more harm. Here is to a speedy and full recovery.

Ohio_Cane

Go Canes, it's still a good thing. I don't think anyone believes he's out of the woods yet.

Go Canes

@scejas: Stable is not a condition. You can be Critical, Serious, Fair & Good. Stable is used to denote stable vital signs; e.g."critical but stable"

CaneRock

And as weird as this may sound, but if JoJo was intoxicated, that may play a part into Him surviving this terrible wreck. From what I've read, they say people with high BALs, have a better chance of surviving these type of wrecks.

Ohio_Cane

If JoJo is "stable", there is definitely a miracle at work. I showed that pic to a couple friends of mine who are firefighters/paramedics here and they said "who died?".

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 26, 2014 at 12:14 PM
----------------------------------------

One said "that's a real bad underride accident. If he lives he's one lucky f@cker"

CaneRock

This is speculation, but a poster from EOTU posted this:

"Just want to pass along confirmed info that there is some really good news regarding Jo Jo's present situation. It seems he had the reaction, right before impact, to pull his Drivers upper seat back to prone right at/during impact to avoid full driver occupant trauma."

I don't believe JoJo had the presence of mind to recline the seat...but I DO believe that the seat reclined due to impact...lessening full driver occupant trauma.

Go Canes

@USFFootball: Taggart tells media 66 of 79 Bulls made 100% of winter conditioning workouts…52 set personal records in the weight room.

UMike

Man.. JoJo would really be a miracle if he comes through. Everyone who has seen those pictures said the same thing...no one could survive that. Keeping the faith!! More prayers for him and his family.

30CINCO

just heard on the radio (560) saying JoJo was upgraded to stable condition

UMike

I think Grace and Burns will solidify themselves as major contributors this spring.

Posted by: Go Canes | February 26, 2014 at 11:24 AM

I hope so. We can use Grace in coverage and Burns is a star waiting to burst onto the scene

In case anyone was wondering where Soup has been.

OK....

Im hoping Kirby take that step. Grace should get some hype also.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^ and Darling.

CaneRock

Adding to Ohio_Cane's list, I'll say...Owens,Kirby, & Kamalu.

UMike

Ohio.. I get that, and Im not wanting a player to fail, but it is something that happens every year lol....It is normally not a current starter, usually a younger player. Im still thinkin...

Ohio_Cane

Let me think about it. Not a fan of picking current players I think will fail, so I may stick with Crow just for SOUP lol

UMike

Ohio.. not limited to weight room..Perfect example is K. Thompkins. Every Spring all you hear about is K. Thompkins, all these TD catches etc... then when the season comes around, dude isnt on the field. I think I mean more hype during the Spring practices that weight room stuff... that make sense?

Ohio_Cane

Do U mean black jersey guy because of weight room performance like Spencer?

UMike

Ohio.. I know, just for shyts and giggles lol.. Every year there is a guy who is hyped all Spring.. or is always in a black jersey, then for some reason when the season starts he is nowhere to be found. I havent thought of my pick yet

Ohio_Cane

Who do you think gets much hype, and then disappears when the season starts? You know it happens every year lol

Posted by: UMike | February 26, 2014 at 10:07 AM
-----------------------------------------

Hype in the weight room, a la Spencer Whipple listed as a starter?? If so, I don't care lol. We know the talented guys.

I'll say Gray Crow. (Sorry SOUP) Lol

UMike

I mean who is gonna be the A. Brown, K. Thompkins or Figs for this year? Although I will give Figs a pass cause of injury. But still...

CaneRock

Spring warriors?...FUQ-IF-I-KNOW!

UMike

Ohio..I am very interested in Young. Kid is built like a dam truck already. Who do you think gets much hype, and then disappears when the season starts? You know it happens every year lol

Ohio_Cane


Im still wondering who the Spring warriors will be this year. Will be nice to hear that Williams or Olsen separate themselves and/or take over.

Posted by: UMike | February 26, 2014 at 09:28 AM
------------------------------------------------------

Figs, Muhammad, Perryman, Coley, KC, Juwon Young. IMO

Brandon Wimbush 247 Update 2/26
Miami offered quarterback Brandon Wimbush after his freshman year, before he even was a member of the St. Peter’s Prep (N.J.) varsity team.

-He first visited Coral Gables as a freshman and was back a second time in June for the Al Golden Football Camp.
-Wimbush’s (6-2, 205) third trip occurred last week.
-says “The last time I was there, I wasn’t able to spend as much time with the staff as I would’ve liked,”
-says “The first time I was there, the facilities hadn’t been completed yet. They wanted me to come back and spend a personal day with them. That’s what I did and it was a good time overall.”
- soaked up his time with Al Golden where the message went beyond football.
-says “I had a meeting with Coach Golden in his office and we had an amazing conversation,” “We talked about my major and some personal stuff which is always great. It reminds me that coaches are looking for more than just a football player. He said the kids they get are very driven academically and they want to be successful in whatever they do. He made the point that Miami prepares you for life after football, whenever that time comes. They would provide opportunities that last much longer than four years.”
-James Coley sat down with Wimbush separately to give him a preview of what it’s like to play quarterback for the Hurricanes.
-says “I had a quarterback specific meeting with Coach Coley for about thirty minutes,” “He told me his expectations of their guys and what they need to be able to do. We went over reading different defenses and it opened my eyes to what college football is really about.”
-Wimbush knows he’s high on the priority list but at the same time, he’s not naïve either.
-says “They’ve told me I’m very high on their list, I remember them saying number one before,” “I understand they’re recruiting other great quarterbacks such as Torrance Gibson. He’s a heck of a player and they’re going after him very hard. I know they can’t just look at one guy but I feel good about where I stand. They said that if I make the decision, they would most likely cut off quarterback recruiting for 2015.”
-Miami’s facilities have taken plenty of heat over the years but the progress is beyond obvious in Wimbush’s eyes.
-says “It was top notch, Miami definitely did an awesome job with that,” “They made tremendous improvements from what they had before and everything looks so attractive. They’re showing everybody that the locker room and the weight room are as nice as what you see anywhere else.”
-The distance from home is the most obvious factor that differentiates Miami from some of Wimbush’s other top choices. He insisted it won’t matter though.
-says “It wouldn’t be that much of an adjustment because all of my family is actually down in West Palm Beach,” “It’s only an hour away and that’s one reason I’ve been able to take all these visits.”
- carries a grade of 93 from 247Sports, ranking him as the nation’s 7th best dual-threat quarterback and 4th overall prospect in the state of New Jersey.

Good Morning Spacers
