NEW BLGO IS UP!

VfB_Cane

Happy birthday, WWIM!

And good morning to everyone else - enjoy life regardless of what happens today. Football games are won on the field, not in offices with fax machines.

1miamifan

A few more hours, and we'll know who wants to be a Cane, if you come or not, I wish you the best.

NativeCane

Faxed my letter of intent to UM and my buttcheeks to FSU and UF!

GO CANES!!!

NativeCane

First on NSD?

GO CANES!!!

WWIN

I see everybody is all hyped up for my birthday today!

Lurker

Treon to UF? Really? Long shot

Hassan

NSD is here well In Afghanistan it is...

Ohio_Cane

Matt Porter ‏@mattyports 1m

If performed at the NFL Combine, #Canes WR signee Braxton Berrios' shuttle run (3.81) would be the third-fastest since 1999. #pbcrecruiting

Ohio_Cane

I'm expecting 1 random out of the blue guy to sign with UM tomorrow as well.

Ohio_Cane

Changing Treon back to UF also...

Ohio_Cane

Reposting this for tomorrow morning so I don't have to look far to find it...

Updated:

Predictions:

1. JC Jackson – UF
2. Brayden Lenius – UW
3. CJ Worton - UF
4. Travonte Valentine – LSU (Praying I’m wrong)
5. Lamon Gaillard – UGA
6. Lorenzo Featherston – FSWho
7. Tavon Ross - MIZZOU
8. Treon Harris – FSU (Hope family ties to UM wins here, but I can't pick it)


Great class overall. Addresses needs and builds depth we're desperate for. Just praying everyone who's committed signs and faxes them in.

Getting Whyche back was HUGE considering I think Valentine is gone. Hope he follows through with JUCO for 1 sememster then comes in May.

Most likely to flip is: Terry McCray to LSU (Don't think he will)

I expect 2-4 post-signing day additions. Grad transfers, guys who didn't sign tomorrow, etc

Damn, the OWNER of The Titanic is on Canespace!

CS it is very sad to see any young man go to prison especially one with the talent and grades. This kid had it all and yet slipped through the cracks. That's why I work so hard to keep my boys on the straight and narrow...I have one in jail for not thinking about what he was doing but I go and see him and will help him when he gets out. CS I will get there and we shall tip a few! VA Country Azz Cane!!

Terrance Sullivan

Great stuff Beer.

Soup have a blast tomorrow at the Titanic and the BUC.

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | February 04, 2014 at 08:35 PM

FYI. For those in the know it's called "The Tit" and I SHOULD know bout that.

Dude on a Pale Horse

So we kick off the season @ Louisville. Tough game.
Week 2 & 3 are gimmes @ home.
@ Nebraska is a tough road game.
Duke is the following week and No'D will be in over his head.
I am confident we beat GT.
@ VT is another tough road game.
V. UNC is a toss up. We needed a game winning drive.
FSU on paper is a loss.
@ Virginia, SHOULD beat them, again see No'D.
Pitt @ Miami is a game we should win.

I can see a 6 win season and anywhere up to 9.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup have a blast tomorrow at the Titanic and the BUC. Go Canes! Beat Pittsburgh! It shall be an interesting day tomorrow.

Ohio_Cane

Lol LA, I'll be ok. We get this stuff all the time

Canesteeler

The Willie Williams story is just plan sad. Randy Shannon sucked as a head coach however I liked the fact he emphasized to the kids the value of receiving an education. Prisons are full of kids like WW. Close strong tomorrow AG. VA Cane if your country ass Evers makes it to Miami drinks are on me!

OhioCane and UMike...we are all set for a 6 AM launch on NSD.

Posted by: SOUP | February 04, 2014 at 06:31 PM

I'll be there. Probably 6:30

SOUP safe travels my friend...
And I too BELIEVE it won't happen but one or two guys this way or that...BOOM.

And Ohio....PLEASE tell us you have back up power source or something! Stay warm and ONLINE!

SOUP

Ohio...the winter storm is heading your way BIG time. Hope you do NOT lose power!

SOUP

LA3...your doomsday scenario could happen. I don't think it will but IF it did there is no doubt that all hell would break loose.
I will not be on the blog tomorrow except for a brief minute around 10:30 and again at 12:30.

After that I will be going to The Titanic around 5:30 PM and the UM vs Pitt BB game at The BUC, then driving to Homestead.

So I will say a prayer asking for wisdom and guidance for the recruits and the bloggers and leave the day in God's hands.

Well, that and hoping that OhioCane and UMike has this place on lockdown! LOL

Just some FYI....I told you Owens will be STAR at LB in near future....
Darrion Ownes is one of the state's top 219 pound class weight lifters and he is heavier now.......over 300 in the clean and jerk and well over 300 in the bench.

Calvin Heurtelou...The "weakest" of the two Heurtelou benches 450 and squats with 575.

LA3

Don't EVEN want to consider it...but based on comments here and there....
Any CHANCE that C. Thomas, D. Jackson, and T. McCray FLIP...
Then TV, Harris, Jackson etc...Don't come.

WHOLE BAT SHIZZ....this site would crash!
But, it is NOT that FAR OFF....REALLY?

LA3

All the predictions LACKED the C. Thomas pick except mine. Nicky Satan and Mario are not going to rest on one of the TOP DE in the country....
I said he will stick and stay but it not 100% And has nothing to do with pay sites.
Has to do with Nicky Satan.....he is MASTER SNAKE OIL SALESMAN...remember he comes from the hills of WV!

The Miami Hurricanes’ 2014 Spring Football Game will be held Saturday, April 12, at Sun Life Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.

In their third season under head coach Al Golden, the Hurricanes posted a 9-4 record and earned a berth to play in the Russell Athletic in Orlando. Miami’s six home wins in 2013 were the most in the Sun Life Stadium era and its most home wins since 2003.

Miami’s entire spring football schedule and events will be announced at a later date.

SOUP

Dude...Spring game is 4/12 at 6 or 7 PMPM

OhioCane and UMike...we are all set for a 6 AM launch on NSD.

Is it national signing day yet? Because it's about time:

@Manny_Navarro
Of the Top 10 football recruits in Miami-Dade County, six have pulled back from a college commitment at least once

@Manny_Navarro
Treon Harris, Jojo Robinson could make it eight of the top 10 on Signing Day

Is this silly or what?

Go Canes

@MiamiHurricanes: Recruiting expert Tom Lemming named @GoldenAl his 2013 Coach of the Year! Congrats to Coach Golden on his Lemmy Award http://t.co/OKTE6WNCmW

I can see it now. Mr. Freebird gave us homeword on the first day! A 6 page essay on why Birmingham loves the Guvna. So much for an easy A.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Does Alabama offer a course on Lynard Skynard?

Dude on a Pale Horse

I can't believe how far away football is right now... I need to make a checklist of dates to keep my blood pumping. NSD tomorrow, NFL Draft in April, does anyone know when the new schedule is announced or what day the Spring Game is on? What day do camps start for Summer and Fall?

Alabama's music program? I can see it now, registration for Banjo and Fiddle 101

Ohio_Cane

I was really excited about JC Jackson, and so was the guy who emails me. Excited meaning he was coming to UM.

I got an email this afternoon that he's going to UF. T-Rob got him to go on the visit with him and it's over, from what I'm told. Hence why I updated my picks to take him off.

Praying he's wrong.

30CINCO

Coley's excitement better be on point. And those predictions from you guys, how can I put this, not exciting at all.

What happened to the insider info that you were all excited about?

One can only hope that we did things right and the kids want to come play. If they do not, I am ok with that....they have a right to change their minds and they are under pressure. I wish them luck and good things. I can only concern myself with development of guys coming to UM.

Just left Booker T. after a 20 minute talk with Chad Thomas. He is most certainly considering Bama. 50/50 with #UM pic.twitter.com/KCrzhGmgCj

Brandon Odoi ‏@Brandon_Odoi 5m

Thomas went into detail with me about Alabama's music program and also he desire to play some linebacker. It's Bama's biggest selling point

Brandon Odoi ‏@Brandon_Odoi 3m

Thomas and his father did a 1-5 scale evaluation between Miami and Alabama. I will detail this all in a story later today on @CaneInsider

Da U N Houston

I think JC Jackson went to FU to thell them he is either solid and signing or that he is walking (no guess on which) but that's teh reason I think he showed up this past weekend.

And since he met Al afterwards, that tells me he confirmed with both FU and UM letting them know where he's going.

Da U N Houston

I believe it was reported taht Treon H. Will only call FSU today (since he is committed to them) to tell them whether he is coming or not. But If he chooses elsewhere they won't find out until tomorrow's announcement.

SOUP

If anyone needs to go it is Gray Crow... Foreal though he needs to go lol

@TheStateOfTheU @86Cane they have #3, #4, #7, #11, #16, #20, #25, #28, #31, #34 in Dade/Broward. They have plenty of studs. (Blu rankings)

VA Cane

Thanks Up North.....and a special TY to Big Windy for saying I need to be the DC.....you guys know how to make a man feel proud of his lifes work....If I wrote it who in the world would read it? LOL.....some of my players and parents might enjoy it....I sure have enjoyed doing it for a long time

Go Canes I remember posting a saga of WW aka "Da Predator" (love that name...) a couple years ago....very nice of you to give this account as it is up to the minute....I think he had just been arrested for the burglary stuff then....nice to know...but very sad for this kid....he had mucho talent....a lot of the people on here saw him first hand....they know how good he was and how good he could have been. It was all part of what ol VA calls "Doomsday: The Crash of UM Football Since 03"....we have had some trying times since that Fiesta Bowl...hope this class will get us moving in the right direction even more....got to keep pushing

I had a kid who was big strong OT huge upside....Sean....dad died he lost interest in sports...school...education...drinking drugs dames became his thing... and fooling with things he had absolutely no knowledge of...Guns...shot a guy in the leg over pot....now doing time out soon....but last visit he told me "Coach I only shot him in the leg".....hard for me to accept that answer....I feel very bad for him....maybe I did not do enough or missed him as he got older and needed a dad figure....but his family brother and mom do not go see him....I am pretty sure I am the only person who visits...and I want his life to be good when he gets out so I will try and help him put it back together....

Lenius is from Canada and word had it that he wanted a school that was closer to home.

VA ever thought about writing a book and having it published about your life as a coach and your coaching methods? It would be very interesting to read about. You bring a lot of passion and insight brother

Brayden Lenius ‏@braydenlenius Protected Tweets 8h
Top 3 schools...Utah, Washington, Minnesota

Don't know much about this young man...maybe he just wants to get and education and that's good....but who would go to these 3 schools to play football? Maybe they have a particular program he likes...dunno....either way I wish him the very best in his endeavors.

VfB_Cane

Thanks, Ohio, for checking that with the U.

So the show starts at 7am and lasts at least until 10am, because that is the earliest time Kaaya is allowed to sign (other West Coast kids, too).

Now everybody, check that your F5 key is working and familiarize yourself with the refresh buttons of whatever electronic device you plan on using tomorrow. You will need it. Often.

UpNorthCane27

Ohio I am most certainly off tomorrow. I will be at the Gym at 6 Am but will be checking in after every set!!! I should be home by 730am on that computer following you every step of the way.
