And I'm likin' what I'm hearin' about Ryan Mayes. We're gonna need a big CB to replace Gunter when He graduates.

UMike

I think I am catching the subtleties of what you are trying to imply. But; just to make sure, are you not a fan of the defensive scheme being used?

Smart man lol.... Im not a fan of giving up career days to average players lol

CaneRock

I can think of a few other towns that need to be "extinct"!:

"Hampton cops were a fixture out on U.S. 301. They sat on lawn chairs, pointing radar guns at unsuspecting motorists. They hid behind recycling bins. As more and more money came in, they idled in slick SUVs, trolled the median strips in riot gear and toted state-of-the-art firepower. Locals gave one the nickname "Rambo" because he slung an AR-15 rifle across his chest."

Dude on a Pale Horse

Those uniforms are a joke. They even got The U backwards on the helmet. Those won't be the new unis.

That's hysterical. I knew I liked that guy.

### UM is adding Green Cove Spring (Fla.) Clay High offensive lineman Tyler Grimsley as a late addition to this recruiting class, according to CaneSport.com. Grimsley, who visited UM last weekend, will be on scholarship at UM and eligible to play this upcoming season.

Grimsley didn’t have a qualifying test score until after National Signing Day. A two-star prospect, Grimsley also had reported offers from UAB and Weber State.

"Nobody knew who he was," his offensive line coach, Frank Garis, told Canesport. "But he has rare explosive quickness combined with man strength. He's a big kid, is a big-time weightlifter for us, can medal in the heavyweight class for us this year…. He played predominantly guard for us. The year previous he also played a couple of games at tackle. Miami is taking him as a center until he adds more weight to play guard."

### Tenth-seed UM (16-15) will play 16th-seed Virginia Tech (9-21) in the ACC Tournament at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, with the winner meeting seventh-seed North Carolina State (19-12) at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Go Canes

Stadium redo really helps us.

Still not close to home but a state of the art facility will impress any recruit.

Terrance Sullivan

LOL Go Canes! Acting Like the Stadium is in Port St. Lucie or something its still located in Miami in the 305 but Miami people crack me up acting like the stadium is 100 miles away. But its a win win for everyone from the team to us fans, etc.

Terrance Sullivan

Congrats Rion Brown on being 3rd team All ACC!

4-Real

Soo...Whadda yall think about our future committ Grimsley? Yall being MIGHTYYY quite! Lol

Ohio_Cane

Grimsley is legit. Was overlooked by most schools. I think he could be a real good one, honestly.

4-Real

Grimsley is 6'3 267lbs. Hope he pans out considering we have limited schollys.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Good size for a center coming in. Anyone have tape on the kid?

trianglecane

His weightlifting numbers were good as a junior. I believe it was a 310 bench and 260 jerk. His weight was 238 at the time. Sorry no link.

Go Canes

It's not 100 miles from campus but it has been a huge disadvantage for us when compared to schools who have 80-100,000k stadiums right on or near campus.

raizecane

Go Canes ....are there any private institutions that currently have an "on campus" stadium that seats 80k? I'm curious...

4-Real

Our struggles ain't got nuthin 2 do with stadiums or fatalities....

The Dude

Posted by: raizecane | March 10, 2014 at 08:46 PM

Notre Dame is one. Maybe the only one?

The Dude

After that, Tulane plays at the Superdome which is really close to campus.

The Dude

Google says its 27 minutes to Sun Life and Orange Bowl was 13 minutes.

The Dude

USC is a private school with a 93,000 seat stadium within the campus area.

The Dude

Results:

USC with a 93,607 seat stadium.
Notre Dame with a 80,795 seat stadium.
Tulane with a 76,468 seat stadium.

Compared to Miami with a 75,540 seat stadium 27 minutes off campus.

Go Canes

Being a private institution has nothing to do with the disadvantage we have had because of where our stadium is.

We are competing with programs like Alabama, LSU, FSU and UF for recruits. All of those program have massive, top of the line on campus stadiums and the best facilities available.

Saying facilities haven't hurt us in recruiting is ludicrous.

The Dude

Rice has a 70,000 seat stadium located on campus and they are private... who knew?

UMike

Wasted scholly... kids needs to be a walk-on. UAB & Weber State???? A big reach imo.. hope I am wrong cause we could use the ship, but seems like an awfully big reach to me

The Dude

Stadium size doesn't equal wins.

1. Michigan
2. Penn State
3. Tennessee
4. Ohio State
5. Alabama
6. Texas
7. UCLA
8. USC
9. Georgia
10. LSU

You know what else hurts recruiting? When a head coach flirts with another school during the most important time for recruiting.

CaneRock

"We are competing with programs like Alabama, LSU, FSU and UF for recruits."

And we beat UF's MUTHAPHUCKIN' ASS!..."facilitate" DAT!

I was surprised to see that Syracuse's dome held under 50,000. That place was loud when McNabb played. Imagine a facility like that near campus.

Go Canes

Whatever.

Another intelligent conversation about something positive happening to our program turns into a way to bash our coach or something that makes no sense by Canerock.

Status quo.

This place doesn't have negative Nancys it;s got negative Nazis.

You guys enjoy yourselves.

The Dude

I wonder if having one of, if not the worst defensive schemes in the history of the school has hurt recruiting?

4-Real

Oregon has the BEST facilities PERIOD!! How's that working out 4 them?

The Dude

Posted by: 4-Real | March 10, 2014 at 09:55 PM

Really freakin well! That program is one of the elite Western programs right now. They are recruiting much better than they have in their history.

The Dude

I agree that having a state of the art on campus stadium could help. But you can sell it either way in the end. What really matters is WINNING and putting kids in the NFL. Do those two things and you are Nick Saban's Alabama or Pete Carroll's USC.

4-Real

But how many ships do Oregon own?

The Dude

Posted by: Go Canes | March 10, 2014 at 09:53 PM

Come on Go Canes, it was just picking up on here.

The Dude

Posted by: 4-Real | March 10, 2014 at 10:01 PM

Irrelevant to what you asked. Their facilities have helped put them in the hunt, that much really cant be questioned, which is far greater than where they have been historically. Oregon is now a contender every year, which is more than Miami can say right now.

Posted by: 4-Real | March 10, 2014 at 10:23 PM

I'm not understanding your argument... I thought the question was how has Oregon's facilities helped them in recruiting and how has that recruiting helped them win? I say its helped a lot. They are now a premier school out West and in the hunt every year. What are we even debating here? I'm not defending Golden or his staff here. I've expressed several times how unimpressed I am with what's on the field.

4-Real

U said yourself Dude that ships are ALL that matters....

CaneRock

"Makes no sense by Canerock."?

Duke has worse facilities than us...Duke has a worse stadium than us...Duke recruits worse than us...and they BEAT US ANYWAY!
