Tim Harris Jr. tells me quarterback Treon Harris will inform the coaches of his finalist of his decision tomorrow. #Gators #Noles #Canes

You can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes, you just might find, that you get what you need. Go Canes!

Try this:
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/colleges
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/

Then navigate to the college / team you are interested in to get a list of the players.

For collge football, this is also a good source of information:
http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/

Hope that helps. If not, let me know what exactly you are looking for, maybe I can dig it up.

While on campus at the Capstone, Chad Thomas met with Saban and also spent time with area recruiter and fellow Miami native, Mario Cristobal.

“Coach Saban just talked to me about recruiting and how he could help me out in the future.

“Coach Cristobal, he kind of laid back since he has done most of the recruiting down here (in Miami). So he laid back and let the everybody else take control.”

Last week, Thomas received visits from both Saban and a large contingent of the Miami staff after returning from an official visit to Florida State.

Thomas maintains his commitment to Miami is strong and that he will sign with the Hurricanes on Wednesday.

“I am still committed to Miami and I am signing with them on Wednesday. I just wanted to get another experience.”

U Can't Get Them All

Good observations. The most important:

Those that bleed orange and green like Duke Johnson and Tracy Howard will stay home and help return the Miami Hurricanes to glory.

Those are the type players you want on your team. The bottom line is: "You can't always get what you want, but you get what you need."

So true!

My birthday picks, what is this signing day that everybody is talking about, Wednesday is MY BIRTHDAY, but a few kids will also be signing with a college of their choice on this day too.

Here's my predictions for some of these kids:

JC Jackson – Canes, but this is one that I'm torn on, I could easily see floriduh too

Brayden Lenius – Washington

CJ Worton - floriduh

Travonte Valentine – l$u

Lamont Gaillard – dawgs

Lorenzo Featherston - Canes

Tavon Ross – mizzo

Treon Harris – Canes

and while I am at it, if I got a little testy with my words last night....Da U...Berri...I apologize if I offended you.

Posted by: VA Cane | February 03, 2014 at 11:58 AM

It's all good, my man! Was never offended. I was just surprised to see some of that stuff coming from you. Seemed out of character for a guy who is usually really very calm, objective and level-headed.

Clearly you know what you are talking about when it comes to pigskin.

Add Stacy Coley to that list and kids like Linder and McDermott. Those kids bleed orange and green and don't buy into the negative hype pumped by our competitors.

We might be going through dark times at The []_[], but rest assured that better days lie ahead as the cupboard starts to get filled. It's only a matter of time.

And for those of us who stick around, for those who constantly get questioned by our friends and family who think we're crazy for sticking by our school come hell or highwater, it's going to be that much sweeter to throw up that []_[] next to the NC crystal!

I admit I was bummed a few weeks back, especially when Golden went through his slob-fest with PSU, but TonyCane's research helped me "see the light" and understand that we're just not there in terms of talent. The NCAA fiasco truly rocked us even though it wasn't as easy to see as it was during the 90s sanctions. But a storm is brewing in Coral Gables, and although I honestly don't know when the fog will clear--could be one year, could be three--it's going to be amazing once it does.

Better days are coming. You can bank on that.

GO CANES!!!

RBLCane

Also, a few days ago I posted a question on here that may have been overlooked: Has everyone given up on Kevin Olsen and if so why?

All I heard was that he couldn't go to the bowl game because of "maturity" issues and that he reportedly has been in AG's doghouse all season. Does anyone know anything more specific?

Kid was a stud coming out of HS. He's also got that Canes pedigree. I'd hate to see him go to waste as it seems most are predicting.

Thanks in advance.

GO CANES!!!

BEERicane

I've been calling for Olsen to be our WB next year and think he will be. My feelings are if Williams manages to win the starting job, we are toast next season. JMO.

BEERicane

Beckham getting his Miami MLS team.

Go Canes

This will be Kaaya's team next year in my opinion.

Why prolong the inevitable?

BEERicane

^Id be cool with that.

Da Street with 5 RINGS and where the Old Lady (Orange Bowl) still sings!

LA3

On a serious note....

Why can't PETE - aka Capt Hawk - invite the Miami coaching staff up to Seattle to see how he does it....to check out what systems he runs and how to run them.
ONE of his BIGGEST things is to come up with individual plans that highlight each player best, THEN mold that into team plans.

WISHED THE OB WAS STILL STANDING BUT HEY IM GLAD THEY HAVE A MOVEMENT TO SAVE MIAMI MARINE STADIUM .. SAID NO ONE EVER.WHERE WAS ALL THE OUTRAGE FROM ALL THE PEOPLE WHEN OB WAS GOING DOWN

Pete Carroll joined VERY elite group of coaches.... Total of 3!
Won NC and SB...

Jimmy, Barry, and Pete!
The U-Cowboys, Sooners-Cowboys, USC-Seahawks.

CZilla, that is one of the coolest places in the entire US! And the fact it was first "power boat" stadium made it way before its time.

LOL it was here on the blog, but that only gets you so far

VA Cane

Berri I stepped over the line and felt I needed and owed you that respect. You are a good blogger as is Da U in Houston and I felt I needed to say the right thing to both of you. Thanks for understanding my friend. If Kaaya can come in and do it, I have no problem with playing the young man. Play whoever gives us the best chance to win I say!!!!

Go Canes

I'll take 8-4 with Kaaya next season over 10-2 with Williams

VA Cane

CGNC here's a couple more nicknames for you...

Mike Goltick Golic is a fat loudmouth from ND who loves to namedrop....Reggie White Jerome B....Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney....I am sure Reg and Jerome loathed the guy....but Rucker and Chesney must be lost if they call that loudmouth friend....he looks like a big grey swollen tick....with curly ragu hair a loud mouth and he dresses like he was dumpster diving....a moron from Cleveland

last but not least....Kenny Mange Mayne is like a bad case of mange....the guy has been at ESPN forever...fills in a lot at Tgiving Xmas New Years.....an idiot. His jokes are jokes...not funny...he is a perfect monotone....he had that short lived spread called the Mayne event...was horrible....why would he work there still? the worst....he must have a picture of Berman and the CEO humping or something.....he's horrible.

So we have Al Pa, Goltick and Kenny Mange....will inform you of others as they arise....hope you like em....

LA3

I think the QB job will be MUCH MORE intense than people expect.
And I would rather grow with a guy for 3 or 4 years and not just plug the next guy in.
Look a seahawks, 49ers,,,,,
The question is does BIG AL and staff have the NUTS to pull the trigger on starting Kaaya....and other young guys with HUGE UPSIDE!

VA Cane

I like the idea....play the kids....I get first year guys who come to me, and if they have good fundamentals and fit in my scheme I want them to play....give them that feeling of my confidence in them, let them contribute to the team....I find it works very well

VA Cane

Very nice article again.....you guys really are on top of the scene. I know VA kids but FL is a long way.....so I read the articles, make mental notes and look at the clips you guys provide. Very impressive.....I wonder if I retire and move to FL if they would let me coach teens....JV and HS.....maybe I could get on at a college....I have a pretty decent resume....It would be a thrill to see the talent up close....and maybe I could teach them some basic fundamentals like I try to do here...just a thought

LA3

Ride with us......Or good luck to you until we meet on the field.

COME ON VT! THE U IS WHERE YOU NEED TO BE!

Be sure to get your ticket
Hurry, don't miss it
Everybody's got to stand in line
Everybody all aboard

I think Jerry Jones was so pizzed that he hired Barry so Jimmy wasnt the only one with this distinction! May have cost the Boys a SB or two!

Go Canes!!!

VA Cane

Not a Cowboy fan but always respected them from the 60s...they had awesome players.....and all through the 70s....when JJ was there they were killer.....Jerry is the worlds biggest idiot....got rid of JJ....Barry didn't win that SB...it was JJ on cruise....I say they would have won 3 or 4 more with JJ....same if he had stayed at UM
JMO

Da U N Houston

VFB!!! You the Man! That's exactly what I needed. I would explain why I needed this but you wouldn't believe me if I told you!

V to the A! We good brah! None of this is personal and I never took it that way. We obviously are passionate about our CANES and that's just us expressing it, similar to Sherman (going off after a big win)! we bleed Orange and Green so it's expected homie!

Great article!

Your coach might not be able to afford a 8-4 season?

“Coach Saban just talked to me about recruiting and how he could help me out in the future."

I wonder if Saban's East Coast or West Coast.
No doubt, Nick is OG. I imagine he got invited to Diddy's White parties every year.
He probably showed Chad his Lil Wayne and Lit Nick pic.

As for jazz, I heard the coach and Wynton are tight and that Harry Connick stops by the Saban house for sing-alongs every couple of months.


Old Skool

Dang it.That should be Lil Nick. Ah well

Heck, if he had been given the green light to trade Marino away, he probably could have made the Dolphins a great team.

Yes sir! And i feel very very good about NSD on wednesday for the Canes.

UpNorthCane27

If it means anything to anyone... The latest update on rival has 7 out of 8 analysts choosing TV to the Canes....

Go Canes

Talking about Stuckey. Thought that was dead in the water.

Nash Williams ‏@NashSports 10m
.@BFRtheSTANDARD I think it's a Arizona State/Miami battle. If they land J.C., this is a top 6 class. Another "State of Miami" kid.

Ohio_Cane

UpNorth, analysts on rivals are stupid for the most part

Ohio_Cane

Stuckey can't qualify

Ohio_Cane

I'd be more surprised if Valentine picked UM than I would Treon Harris AND JC Jackson combined. Think about that

Ohio_Cane

@mattyports: Coley said he didn't want to change too much in #Canes offense last year in part because Stephen Morris had been thru 3 OCs in 3 yrs.

BEERicane

TV. Cane.
