I think you are trying to argue with me but you are helping to make my point.

Here is a kid with all the talent in the world. Goes UNDRAFTED out of the U. Gets COACHED up in the NFL and signed an awesome contract.

I'm ecstatic for Sam Shields, but his legacy while AT THE U, is a bust.

SOUP

NEW BLOG IS UP!

CaneRock

Didn't Shields just sign a $39M contract, well then, yes...it was a BRILLIANT! move by Shannon!

Golden sucks.

Hey hey now... no coach bashing

Go Canes

Again, nothing to do with what we are talking about.

But as usual, you're always getting every conversation back to your favorite, actually only, topic of Golden sucks.

Gin & Tonic

I think stars are NOT the most important thing when evaluating high-school or junior college talent. There are too many variables.

Such as:

Growth spurts: Depending on the position, size is a big component of how many stars a kid gets. Say a 6-0 QB has the same skill set as 6-4 QB. The 6-4 QB will be 4/5 star while the 6-0 would be 3/4.

Work ethic: Will the kid hit the gym and the playbook. Does he have the drive to make him the best player he can possibly be. We have had a ton of high star kids recently with low drive or focus.

Coaching: This is the biggest concern over the past 10 years for this program. Too many players have the same skill set as freshmen as they do as seniors. No one seems to get better or "coached up". Someone posted a couple of days ago giving Shannon kudos for moving Shields from WR to DB his senior year. They acted like Shannon was a genius to do this. They left off the part where the Packer defensive coaches called out the U by saying that it seemed like Shields had never studied film before because he did not know what to look for.

I don't care how many stars they have next to their name on rivals or scout coming out of high school. If they are still receiving high school level coaching while enrolled at college, they will never develop their skill set to reach their full potential.

Sign them up then COACH them up.

And UMike, you know who else had some U gear on...go to about 2:44 of this video, look carefully at the guy on the right:

Even the Tonya Harding 30/30 the hitman had on a U hat haha

CaneRock

USAFCane, WOW!, I was gonna post the same thing awhile back! Glad you caught that.

USAFCane

watched the ESPN 30/30 on the fab 5. It focused on how they revolotionized college basketball with their attitude and confidence. Twice, front and center during the documentary was the Miami Hurricanes. Jalen Rose with a "U" hat on and some kid hugging Webber had a "U" T. When you look at the timeline, Canes were at close to their peak. Show how they influenced everything arounf them so far as swagger and attitude goes.

"LOL UMike that bowl game was a complete dumpster fire."

That's the most complimentary statement of I've heard about that game.

LOL UMike that post was epic. It would have really been funny had he said our offense was trending up considering they stay at Universal Island Adventure and didnt make it to the Citrus Bowl. Because they no showed that game.

"A Maryland quote from almost four years ago when discussing star rankings."

But Golden said "Talent Ain't Enough" though...

"Kind of hard to peak when you're not on the field."

But Golden said we had enough to talent to beat UMD though...

Terrance Sullivan

The Virginia Tech game was the inverse of the Florida game. We won the turnover battle against Florida easily and won that game most thought we would lose and we lost the turnover battle to Virginia Tech handily and we lost most people thought we would win. IJS anyways Lets Go Canes! Beat the WolfPack!

UMike

triangle, I agree.. IDK about 5 years, but the rest I agree

Go Canes

The majority of those guys played only one season for Golden and a lot of them were suspended for parts of it.

Guys like Streeter and Miller did play very well for him but others like Fortson, Vernon, Ray Ray, Dye and Ojomo were either injured or suspended for huge chunks of that year.

Kind of hard to peak when you're not on the field.

Posted by: UMike | March 13, 2014 at 11:33 AM

I think it's both.

Coaches not staying on top of kids. Kids not growing the hell up.

As for the current staff I believe I have stuck by my five year plan. But, Dno is terrible. I hope he turns it around.... not so he can save face, but so Miami can win games.

CaneRock

"Peak contribution time here"?

Why didn't they peak with Golden?

They won one LESS game with Golden, than AT ANY TIME with Shannon.

Goldenites attack CaneRock in 3...2...1...

UMike

Okay.. we can agree that stars haven't matter much to MIAMI since 2002.

I believe according to rivals Miami has had 15-5 stars and Hester, Greg Olsen, Kenny P, Duke, and a possible TH3 are play makers. The rest were solid if that.

Like I said I don't care MUCH about stars. I don't care about Alabamas 5 stars or Texas' 5 stars.. MIAMI's five stars have not performed for the most of 11 years.

When they do, I will put more into stars.

Posted by: trianglecane | March 13, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Maybe.... just maybe... its the coaches?

CaneRock

That "three years to play three seasons" is intriguing. But like I said UMike, I like em'. He doesn't have a great get-off, but He seems to have a great motor, very good COD (Change Of Direction), and I like the way He finishes plays...I think He tore up the QB's knee on one of those HLs. But like I always say...we'll see.

Go Canes

One thing we have to consider when looking at the recent rankings is players lost early for a variety of reasons.

Fortson, Vernon, Washington, Streeter and Miller all went early, additonally Ray Ray was booted and Ojomo got his jaw shattered.

And even while here a lot of those key players were suspended for varying periods of their final season.

That's a ton of key players missing for what should have been their peak contribution time here.

I know other teams lose players early, but I don't think many, except for major powers who had a deep stockpile of talent, lost those kind of numbers all in one shot. Then having to battle the NCAA disaster when trying to refill those positions made it even more difficult.

IMO we are poised to be the most relevant we have been in a decade starting now.

UMike

CR... and he played so well every school in the country forgot about him lol

CaneRock

But UMike (LOL), Ledbetter was originally an Oklahoma State commit. And this is per Scout:

"Ledbetter was at Olympia High School in Orlando, Fla., before moving his senior season to Gainesville High School in Georgia where his career really took off with local media referring to him as a "one man wrecking crew" during the Gainesville playoff run his senior season. He landed at Hutchinson C.C. and red-shirted his freshman season thus giving him three years to play three seasons at the Division I level."

UMike

CR... so the answer is some guy nobody wants? lol Come on man!! lol How about this... how about we dont whiff on elite DT's on our own backyard so we dont have to reach for a ZERO star JUCO guy that doesnt even have any D2 offers lol

CaneRock

But UMike, you have to put needs in their at some point. We haven't exactly been settin' the world on fire at DT the last 8 or so years. And the 2015 DT class doesn't look deep.

UMike

Maybe in another year, but for the 2015 class? No way imo.

UMike

I do think some stars are overrated, I get that, and I also get that occasionally a ZERO star guy gets drafted... but when a guy has all the desired measurable, why ZERO offers? No D2, D3 schools, no local schools etc, ZERO.... makes you think.

I do think you recruit to fit your system, but you have to recruit talent to fit your system, you dont recruit a guy just because his size fits.

CaneRock

UMike, I like this Ledbetter kid. But my only thing with the JUCO guys, is how close are they to their ceilings. Remember "The Plug", He had a decent 1st year, but didn't really do anything His Senior year.

raizecane

Saying one doesnt believe in STARS is like saying Stanford doesnt care what a potential student gets on his SAT score.

Yes you can't compare a test to how players get their ranking but just wanted to make some comparison.

It's like the phrase we have all heard at one time or another - "you get what you pay for". So to me.....STARS do matter at some level. It's not the final decision maker but it has to account for something, right ??

I don't care much about stars. EVERY year there are a ton of kids that perform and get drafted that had no stars.

I guess I am from the school of DO YOU. I really don't care about why someone else doesn't pick up this kid, I'm more concerned about how he fits in the U system.

Granted this d....

UMike

30.. I do agree with most of that info also

UMike

"QB=Immense improvement. Olsen, Kaaya, and Rosier are a nice stable over just Morris and Williams."

I dont know if I would say there is an "immense improvement"... 2012 was by far Morris' best year and Kaaya and Rosier havent step foot on campus yet. Perhaps the depth is there simply because we have more numbers.

And this ..

"CB=Much better. We lose McGee and Finnie, who I really liked, to add Lewis III, Elder, Burns, and Mayes. I'd call that an increase in talent to put it mildly."

Lewis 3 and Mayes are not upgrades over McGee and Finnie, BUT todays TH3 and Burns definitely improve the talent at CB

CaneSawMassacre

U

30CINCO

Others post and opinions, but I agree mostly (except for RB, I think its equal):

"QB=Immense improvement. Olsen, Kaaya, and Rosier are a nice stable over just Morris and Williams.

RB=Slightly better. I think Yearby and Edwards are an improvement to James in at least the talent department. Also, it doesn't look like we're replacing Hagens with an equal so that's concerning.

TE=Massive improvement. Old Walford was underdeveloped, Dye never played, and Cleveland was a glorified blocker with no catching threat at all. New and improved Sandland, Dobard, Herndon, and Njoku are an excellent corps in comparison.

WR=Better, but only by a little. Hurns was ready to perform and Dorsett and Waters were expected to have their moments, but Davon Johnson and Kendall Thompkins were nice enough contributors. Waters is streaky and I'm very curious to see how Dorsett performs without a big arm QB and coming off his injury. Stacy is outstanding as we all know, but he's having to replace Hurns's production. D'Mauri Jones is apparently starting to show some promise and Brady, Berrios, and Langham are all talented enough to contribute barring any injury affects with Berrios. I'm not including Gray because that will just fill me with fantasies I don't want to crush.

OL=Talent and production are pretty much the same. Feliciano, S. McDermott, and Flowers are all returning and I think the loss of Seantrel, B. Linder, and Bunche, who's talent leaves a admittedly large gap to fill, but K. McDermott, Gall, Knighton I think, Darling, N. Linder, and the impact of Odogwu will equalize it.

DE=Large improvement. We drop the Ricardo Williams and Shayon Green's of the world to add Thomas, Harris, Jackson, and Muhammad. Green was at best serviceable and now we have three potential game-changers to replace him and we even have a promising player in Kamalu.

DT=Slightly better, but it still sucks donkey ass like before, just not as hard now. We lose Luther Robinson to add Moten, Wyche, Jenkins, and Heurtelou, but in an honestly perfect scenario, Jenkins should be redshirted, Moten would get spot duty, and Heurtelou/Wyche would get time to develop and not be forced into immediate service. It's better, but it's still in shambles.

LB=Better. 2012-now, we lost Gionni Paul, Eddie Johnson, Tyrone Cornelius, Gabe Terry, and Jimmy Gaines. That's a lot of talent to replace. We've done so with Figueroa, Jermaine Grace, Young, McCray, Mike Smith, and Darrion Owens. I'd say that is a larger talent gain than talent lost.

S=in terms on talent and experience we go from true freshmen Bush and Jenkins with Kacy Rodgers Highsmith and Telemaque in 12 to Juniors Bush and Jenkins with Soph Carter pushing hard, the recently moved Dallas Crawford with the addition of true freshmen Hester and Gayot. And don't forget Tolson. In my opinion the 2014 group at safety is a huge upgrade from where this position was at in 2012 and 2013. In terms of talent depth and experience its a slam dunk

CB=Much better. We lose McGee and Finnie, who I really liked, to add Lewis III, Elder, Burns, and Mayes. I'd call that an increase in talent to put it mildly."

UMike

Ohio... I wasnt a big fan of his in HS, he seemed really slow for a DE, but you could also tell he had a hurt knee, so I thought he would be fine. He is obviously talented, almost all schools wanted him. Would like to see what he can do healthy, especially if at DT where we need help.

Ohio_Cane

Sorry, missed last question, UMike. I don't think it's all been the one knee. I'd have to research to find each injury.

Ohio_Cane

Ohio.. wasnt he injured his SR year? I remember saying on here that he didnt look like a 4-Star recruit in the STA games I watched, and people said he had a knee injury... is that still an issue?

Yep, and every year since then. Unlucky or injury prone. U decide.

UMike

Measurables only matter if the rest of the parts to the equation are there. If the film is so great, why zero offers? Why zero stars? There is a reason. I believe more in game film or watching live.. I know highlight tapes can be helpful, but its a highlight tape designed to make a player look good. MAYBE in a time when we dont have sholly limits and when our talent and depht is right, maybe then we "take a shot" on a guy like this. I mean, if we can only take 12-15 kids and already have 4 commits and not a single elite player yet, we cant reach that much. IMO

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1664138/jeremiah-ledbetter

Measurables mean something-a 6'5 350 corner that runs a 5.5. tells you that guy should not be a corner.

Measures are a PART of the equation. Anyone who says different.. well..

UMike

Those measurable dont mean anything imo, there is a reason a guy is a ZERO star with ZERO offers. We have limited numbers and need to build talent, not "give shots" just because a guy is big and strong. JMO of course

I noticed that UM's football page changed the link for "roster" to "student-athletes." I understand the connotations behind it, but it's a little obvious that football players at a top 40 school are also students.

UMike, based on the Rivals star ratings themselves, the 2013 squad was the weakest Hurricane team in eleven years. While we still had significant talent compared with some of our opponents (Duke), the bulk of our 4 star talent were either true freshmen or sophomores. A contrast with teams like North Carolina and Va Tech. Overall, the team was tremendously impacted by the shattering of the 2011 class, and the big whiffs on the 2010 class.

Posted by: TonyCane | March 12, 2014 at 08:29 PM

Good points, especially about Duke... BUT... other teams have made great strides with a bulk of young talent. Also, "big whiffs" fall onto the staff, right?

Lets just hope we see real improvement this season with young and veteran talent.

Calvin Ridley is considered one of the top players in the country and a five-star caliber talent. The scary part? He might not even be the best prospect in his own family. Meet Cavin Ridley (yes, his name is Cavin), a 2016 prospect who recently transferred to Monarch from Stranahan.

The two brothers are extremely close as the younger brother Cavin explains.

“Yes, we will play with each other in college. He’s my role model and he teaches me what to do and what not to do and how to play. I follow him,” said Ridley. “It would be crazy if we played together. You’ll have to draw up something for us.”

Cavin is already 6-1, 190 pounds with elite explosive ability. His versatility is what could give the Ridley name another five-star prospect.

“I believe I can play anything. I’m an athlete all around. I can play running back, receiver, or defense. I’m a beast. I go hard every play and put in 100%.”

Ridley says that the three schools that stick out for him right now are Florida, Miami, and Alabama, but it seems like UF has his heart early.

“Every since I started to play football, Florida was the school that like inspired me to go hard. I always wanted to be a Gator.”

What would Cavin do if Calvin chose Miami as many have suspected?

“I would have to talk to my brother and have him tell me what to do that would benefit myself.”

### Brent Musburger has decided to accept a demotion at ABC/ESPN instead of retiring or looking for a job elsewhere. ESPN announced today that Musburger --- who signed a new contract --- will be the lead announcer on college football on the new SEC Network, which typically will televise the third or fourth-best SEC game each week. That’s quite a step down from his previous role as ABC’s lead college football announcer. Musburger, who will be paired with Jesse Palmer on SEC games, also will continue to call Big 12 basketball for ESPN.

ESPN wants Chris Fowler to replace Musburger, alongside Kirk Herbstreit, on its lead college football announcing team. That will become official assuming Fowler and ESPN work out a new contract.

ACC Legend
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – On Saturday, March 8, the day of the semifinal games at the ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament, former greats from each conference institution waited to be inducted into the 10th class of ACC Legends.

For Miami, it wasn’t a former player. It was the fourth coach in program history and one of the most iconic women in women’s basketball history—Lin Dunn.

Dunn coached the Hurricanes long before Miami joined the ACC, or any conference for that matter. Her nine years in Coral Gables laid the foundation for a program and the groundwork for its success.

Inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 2003, Dunn remains one of the most transcendent figures in the Miami Hurricanes family. In her time at the helm of the program in Coral Gables, Dunn accumulated a 149-119 record.

Dunn’s influence on the game of basketball stretches far beyond Coral Gables. She has won at every level, and her southern personality has touched people from coast to coast.

“Say the name Lin Dunn to anyone in women’s basketball and they’ll immediately give you a smile and a story,” current head coach Katie Meier said.

A contrast with teams like North Carolina and Va Tech. Overall, the team was tremendously impacted by the shattering of the 2011 class, and the big whiffs on the 2010 class.
