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.. 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...

CaneRock

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

CaneRock

UMike

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

@TheStateOfTheU: Update: Nicolas still in critical condition, Knighton facing "serious health condition" http://t.co/l9C25SXbN7

Go Canes

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

KYcane

In case anyone was wondering where Soup has been.

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

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

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.

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?".

raizecane

Soon Lexus will be able to make the same commercial with JoJO as living proof...

RT @nbc6 UPDATE: JoJo Nicolas upgraded to stable condition @ Jackson Memorial Hospital after violent crash http://bit.ly/MtVy9y

Go Canes

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

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.

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

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.

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"

Ohio_Cane

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

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

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.

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

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

Ohio.. I posted that a while back also... there was a pic of him with a few other guys and he looked jacked

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.”

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

^^^ Again.. if he is alive after this long, I think its a good sign.

CaneRock

Carter looks swoll, but that could be that..."takin' a pic right after you knocked out a set" swoll. Let's see what He looked like an hour after that pic LMAO!

UMike, you sound like this other Mike from Miami, who's kid that I coached. I didn't know me and him grew up in the same hood' (North Miami), till I went talkin' to Him at our team banquet. But yeah dawg, He was goin' through the same thing with his wife.

UMike

My baby momma got hooked bad and hasnt been involved in my kids lives for about 8-9 years now. I was a single dad for a while... just sad what drugs can turn a person into. Just glad I was able to get my kids away from the madness. A lot of my dawgs is from North Miami/NMB over on 6th ave. My hood' is more NMB and Opa Locka than North Miami.. when I was a jit I had issues with some Zoe's and stayed away from North Miami for the most part lol

UMike

Every year we had our b-day parties at Oak Grove park on 6th ave.. EVERY dam year lol
