Go Canes.. FSU is only recruiting from a position of power NOW, not a few cycles ago. We whiffed on Bryant, Valentine, Watson, Bostwick, Hooks, Bain, Holley, Sawyers, Clark, Johnson, Pelon, Stucky etc.

I agree is a hard position to find quality talent, but we were right there and couldnt finish.. even had a few committed.

My only point in all of this is we need to get better at this spot. Our D is horrible and has been, this needs to be a priority, not 4 elite RB's lol (which is awesome)...I hope it starts soon.. but it wont this cycle imo

UMike

If its true Lebron isnt meeting with any more teams, I cant see him going to Cleveland. No way he goes without meeting with Gilbert, imo.

VA Cane

Wyche is a good player. He is from VA Beach. He is going to be a big help and will do a good job. Seen him in action; he will be an upgrade. sometimes thats what happens; make the best of it and we move on.

UMike

Wyche will definitely be an upgrade.. I agree. I think CH will too.

VA Cane

position of power NOW

But grades were a factor with one or maybe both.

Thats the problem in a nutshell. These schools have no real education standards. They allow stupid dumbass MFs who cannot read and write to come to school for 1 thing:Sports. Athletic ability does not entitle one to education if you cannot do the work. Some of FSUs kids may not be able to spell or read, yet by being there they take precedent over a real student because they can play sports. Sad system that permits this type of thing. There has to be some kind of reasonable standards for all schools....and it is not sympathy and entitlement.

I think what Gray is going through now, will be the same thing Walton has to go through if He wants to reclassify. Assuming you need 28 credits to graduate, by my calculations, Walton would be 2 credits short at the end of the next school year. And He says He hasn't taken the ACT yet...and we don't even know where He stands with His core classes...4 years of English & Math, 3 years EACH of Social & Natural Sciences, & 2 years of a foreign language. But again, if Walton is able to reclassify, I see Him coming next Fall...AT BEST.

CaneRock

I see Him coming next Fall...AT BEST.

Correction...next Fall...AT THE EARLIEST.

CaneRock

And whether Chris Sheridan is right or wrong on "Lebron to Cleveland"...He's a DOUCHE!

Go Canes

FSU's record the last three years is 35-6.
They've had continuity at the top, with Jimbo running the show as Bobby was on his way out. They have top of the line facilities, tradition and a coach that can really recruit.

It was just a matter of out with the old and in with the new before that school blew up again.

They have definitely been recruiting from a position of power the last three to four years.

Regardless, I feel we are miles ahead of where we were at that position, thanks to some good JUCO pickups and a potentially dominant kid from St Thomas.

It's gone from an F to a C on our roster. We need to get it to a B or A in time. Think we will.

j.w.

Wyche being an upgrade will be a plus. After the past two years, I don't think he has to be a star, just be someone we can count on to do a job. I think even the 12%'ers will acknowledge this isn't going to be easy for the Defense to be better than average, I just hope we aren't giving up more than 40 in any game.

UMike

Now that Snelson is set to commit, FSU offers lol

UMike

Also read a few different places that UF CB commit Marcus Lewis might flip to Miami

Too little, too late:


"I would say that because I have family members on the UM team," Snelson said. "So they probably think I'm going there."

Those family members are Tracy Howard (cousin on his father's side), Malcolm Lewis (cousin on his mother's side), Joseph Yearby (his uncle on his father's side) and Jermaine Grace (a cousin on his mother's side).

UMike

Ohio.. Im with you.. just thought it was funny.

VA Cane

We have to improve, not be #1. That wont happen. If we get a little tougher on the run up the middle, get a little better on the corners and safety, and can get some pressure and push, this will help get off the field especially in 3rd down situations, and will allow for more pep and vigor late as we will not be so winded. Just improve in all areas of D. That is all you can expect; we will not suddenly be The Steel Curtain, Doomsday, 46 or any of the great UM Ds from the past. Just improve over last year.

The Work 7-10

**Miami is in very good position to land Tallahassee Godby OT Brendan Loftus. Loftus is a 6-8, 290 tackle with loads of potential. His coaches believe that his best football is ahead of him. Loftus will be visiting Penn State on July 19th and he will announce his decision on July 29th at Godby’s media day. He camped at Miami in June and was extremely impressive.

**Two national kids that Miami is quietly in the game for are Jaason Lewis (ATH from Virginia Beach) and Josh Sweat (DE from Chesapeake, VA). I’m not saying that Miami leads for either one, but the staff is on both hard and interestingly Sweat is close with Miami DT Michael Wyche. Just something to keep an eye on.

**Nothing really new with Tyrek Cole. Miami still expects a flip at some point as do people close to Cole. West Virginia is not as big of a factor as some have made it seem.

**There is a similar situation with Devante Peete right now as in not much has changed. Miami still wants him, but is not trying to rush him into a commitment. I am a big fan of Peete’s as a prospect. He can really run for his size. Total mismatch problem for opposing defenses.

**Just to put in perspective the type of athlete Miami is getting in Jordan Scarlett, I will refer to a story that one of Scarlett’s coaches over the last three years (Chad Wilson) told me this week. Wilson said the first time he clocked Scarlett in the 40, he ran a 4.37 on an NFL clock. Wilson told me that he made Scarlett run it three more times because he didn’t believe the time. Scarlett clocked two 4.3s and a 4.4. He was a 9th grader.

**I have mentioned it before, but watch for South Carolina as a darkhorse for JaQuan Johnson. At this point, Miami is not panicking as it seems most fans are. They believe he is still theirs to lose.

**I said earlier this week that Miami was looking good to land American Heritage ATH Dredrick Snelson and nothing has changed there. Snelson is Joseph Yearby’s nephew and has been around campus a lot because of that.

**Despite reports elsewhere, Miami is not recruiting Rashard Causey and has not done so for months. Any report that has him committing to Miami is false.

**I need to correct myself on something. In the past I have posted that Carlton Davis was being recruited as a safety, but Miami wants him as a corner.

Twitter Questions

1) From @CaneSwagger01 – should we offer (Rodrick) Archer and do you think we will?
I like Archer as a prospect and would love to see Miami take one of these Safety/Linebacker tweener prospects a year because South Florida tends to be loaded with them. I just don’t think Miami is all that interested in him so I don’t see an offer coming his way unless something changes.

2) From @_M_I_A_M_I - How likely is Cavin (Ridley) to follow Calvin next year? And are we getting back in the pic with him and SBB?
Cavin has big grades issues he needs to focus on that before anything, but yes he would most likely follow Calvin. Miami has always been in the picture for Burgess-Becker and Ridley. That did not change when they committed to Alabama. Look for Miami to make their major push later in the cycle closer to signing day.

3) From @305sports – do you see any recruits getting the Dennis Turner treatment?
Yes, this will happen as it does every year in recruiting.

4) From @TheCMarone – Is Marcus Lewis going to flip (From UF)?
It is highly unlikely that Lewis flips to Miami.

5) From @RozaySchmidty13 – with the momentum that we have in recruiting who do you think the next 2015 commitment will be from?
I will go with Brendan Loftus.

And in case anybody on the blog forgot..

DEM CANES gonna go Undefeated this year!!! which means 15-0 I think with the new playoff format lol.

LETS GET IT CANES!!!

Clwtrdan

As far as our LB corps goes, can anyone explain why Armbrister is listed as a senior? He didn't play at all his freshman year and was on the practice squad. Do you have to apply to be a redshirt, and if so, couldn't he apply next year and stay in the mix? He started a lot of games last year over the dirty Fig.

UpNorthCane27

Clwtrdan I don't think we want him to stick along for another year lol.. let armbrister be a senior ball out this year and go pro or at least try and go pro.

UMike

Hasnt Armbrister been here like 7 years? lol

UpNorthCane27

Umike close I believe it's been 8 years today loll

Lewis is from Ocean Lakes. My buddy is there. LSU and Clemson are hot on him, down in that area all the time per Skipper. He does a lot of things well. Not sure how he is since UCLA decommit. UNC likes him too, as does Greasy cheater homo Urban, and Fat Boy Muschump.

Sweat is from Oscar Smith in Chesapeake, state champs 2008 2011. Philip Sims was from there; he was at Bama then UVA...did not like going to class, now at Winston Salem State.

Sweat is a real beast. Skipper told me his first step and quickness make him hard to stop off the ball. He has goode size and strong hands that he uses on people like sledge hammers. Well thought of kid from great program. Everybody wants him. FSU, OSU (fuck Urban) VT, PSU, UCLA, LSU, GA, Clemson, USC, Mich St, UCLA, Oregon,TAMU....he is a really good DE....probably the best kid to come out since Clowney. Loveto have both, but Sweat would give us something we havent seen in years...he is the deal!!!


I love VA kids, get to see them some. I do not want any of my boys to go to Urban or Muschump; hate those idiots!!!!! Get on it UM

I'll believe it, when I hear it.

Several things that don't make sense...First off, Lebron's agent (Rich Paul), contacted Dan Gilbert and told em' that Lebron was leaving during the 1st "Decision", why didn't He give Riley that same courtesy?

And Lebron may want to lead a younger team, but from a social standpoint, what are they gonna do after the game, go to Chuck E Cheese? I don't even think Irving & Wiggins are old enough to drink!

But in any event, the smoke says Cleveland, we'll see...

UMike

I also saw a tweet that confirmed James was taking Wade with him to Cleveland lol..

Im a Heat fan no matter what... if he leaves I appreciate his time here.. I know Riley will get some other names in here to be competitive. Ive been riding with the Heat since Grant Long and Glenn Rice baby... aint about to stop now lol

Maybe, but why in Vegas is what I meant. And I've read that Rich Paul isn't really a "drama" type of guy...not one to lead you along.

Lebron is already in Vegas doing his Bball camp.

UMike

IDK who this Chris Sheridan fool is, but he is a complete tool.. similar to Ferman

Ohio_Cane

Believe it or not (Lurker), I'm actually having fun with this, cuz I don't particularly care that much if he leaves.

I'll get to see him play more if he's in Cleveland, actually. Lol

Ohio_Cane

Stephen A. Smith of ESPN was less emphatic but is hearing the same thing. "Based on what I am hearing," Smith told ESPN Radio. "LeBron goes to Cleveland, [Carmelo Anthony] goes to New York."

UMike

And then Bosh to Houston. If so, was a nice ride for Miami.

CaneRock

If all these reports are true, it's freakin' crazy how a Championship core can broken up so quickly nowadays. San Antonio is a dinosaur in today's basketball, gone are the days where Championship cores played what seemed like forever.

Lurker

Tell the truth Ohio, I think you're secretly praying he returns to Cleveland.

If he stays, a lot of people in Cleveland sure are going to be embarrassed the way they're making asses out of themselves now.

I feel like most people I know, if he makes a decision to leave, he'll be doing what he feels is best for him and his family. You can't begrudge that. I'll wish him and his family well.

Miami can't complain: 4 finals, 2 NBA championships. Let that sink in. How many teams in any sport have won like that in a short period? Not many!

SOUP

1. Ohio none of that counts because we are short on DTs.

1. We've had to get guys like Wyche and Hurtelou as we start bringing in our own guys like Moten.

It will happen, just like the rest of it is.

Wyche, Hertelou, Moten and Jenkins are all better than anybody UM has had at DT since Golden has been here. Probably since before that.
