Way to steal my thunder Sarasota, LOL!!! I guess I should of read all the post before I posted!

In all joking aside, Dude, do you have a lot of stress in your life right now? I had the same thing around 6 years ago for about 4 months. It felt that there was something stuck, right below the adam's apple. I believe mine was just stress due to my wedding coming up. It was a fine and dandy when all the wedding shyt was over.

OL Hayden Mahoney in


I hope coach D'no commits to the unemployment line today!!!!


Fire Al Golden!!!


This is going to be our worst recruiting class in years!


This is all a result of the losing season. Golden's one strength is supposed to be recruiting........it's not a happy morning so far. Let's see!


I am not going to say anything negative today so will hold off until tomorrow regarding my current thought.


raize, just sign in under a different name and share... the canes wont know lol


Bama has 18 ESPN 300 recruits.....the rich get richer.

Canes currently have 6.


Oh dear Lord. Is this really today?

But on a better note, today is my wife's 30th birthday.

Even she (who isn't a sports fan at all) saw the U Part 2 and said that she thought Butch Davis would be great for them.

But above all... oust Shalala immediately, put James and his comical rhetoric on the chopping block...

...then effing fire Al Golden TODAY. I won't be watching football period (and haven't a down since Virginia) until Al's gone.

Oh, and Spacers?

In all seriousness: don't pull a Joe Rose or creepy Laz and get angry at high school kids (who may or may not pan out anywhere) who had an ounce of clarity and decided to run like hell from Al.

Be thankful we get anyone at all.


Welcome New CANES!!!

Speaking the truth is not being negative. Don't believe their hype.

Good luck to the New Canes signers.

Golden supporter turning to the dark side?


Is there any good news?


LB James King picks Miami


Is there any good news?

We signed the best RB & Safety in the 305

J'Ville Cane

According to Rivals Miami is 5th in the ACC... 6th if you count ND. But hey, we're 3rd in the coastal!

This is the fans' fault. If we hadn't kept pointing out that UM kept losing Coastal games to opponents with less talent, Al wouldn't have had to recruit a class with talent weak enough to justify those losses.

Such bad fans.



Clouds darken the sky = Night games = Fatigued and grumpy players = Loss = Poor recruiting = Recruiting Clouds....


RB Mark Walton is in



I'm glad he reclassed


We'd be so screwed if Walton didn't reclassify

UM enters National Signing Day on Wednesday waiting for answers from at least 12 players, including one soft Canes oral commitment (receiver Terrell Chatman), two defensive tackles (one from Jacksonville, one from L.A.), a three-star defensive end from Michigan (Joshua Alabi) that UM is trying to flip from Ohio State; four-star Tallahassee "athlete" D'Anfernee McGriff (down to UM and UF, according to Canesport) and two local players they pursued late: three-star Killian cornerback Sheldrick Redwine and two-star Booker T. Washington linebacker James King, an FAU oral commitment. (See Manny’s blog for a list of what time most of these players will announce on Wednesday.)

It’s disappointing, but not surprising, that UM, as of this hour, has only one committed defensive tackle, Ryan Fines, who analysts regard as a longterm backup.

But it’s both disappointing and surprising that UM enters NSD with no cornerback commitments from South Florida, considering how deep and strong the position was in Dade/Broward high schools this past season.


### Five-star American Heritage prospect Tarvarus McFadden, rated the nation’s No. 2 corner by Rivals.com, is FSU-bound and bemoaned to The Herald early last year that UM didn’t initially pursue him. “They don’t ever contact me,” he said a year ago. UM subsequently offered, but it was too late.

### Auburn is reportedly the favorite for four-star Norland cornerback Carlton Davis, a former Ohio State oral commit. Miami was never able to make inroads with Davis, rated the nation’s No. 17 cornerback.

### Miramar’s Tyrek Cole, the No. 18 cornerback, opted for West Virginia over Miami and others largely because his former high-school coach, Damon Cogdell, is now on the Mountaineers’ staff.

### Booker T. Washington’s DaVante Davis, the nation’s No. 24 safety who can also play cornerback, is Texas-bound partly because he wanted to leave town for college.

### Westminster Christian’s Tim Irvin, the No. 29 safety who also can play cornerback, has enrolled at Auburn and never felt a deep connection with the Miami staff, according to an associate.

### St. Thomas’ Rashard Causey, the No. 42 cornerback, opted for UCF over offers from UM and others.

### St. Thomas’ Damon Arnette, the No. 51 cornerback, is committed to Ohio State. Miami never made an offer.

### UM made a late run at Carol City cornerback three-star Rashad Fenton, but it was too late. He’s considering UF, Lousiville and South Carolina.

### UM never offered Northwestern’s DeAndre Baker, the No. 72 cornerback according to Rivals. He’s committed to Georgia.

Perhaps UM will snag Redwine, the No. 62-rated cornerback who grew up a Canes fan. He’s a soft Louisville commitment.

UM has only one oral commitment at cornerback as of this hour: four-star Alabama based prospect Michael Jackson, rated the nation’s 31st-best cornerback by Rivals. By all indications, he's a good get. But you would have expected more considering how many good cornerbacks there are in this area.

Charlot to Bama.


Looks like we're flipping Redwine. Has a UM logo on the table in front of him


@DavidFurones90: At Redwine announcement. This is where he'll be sitting. Got both hats on table but #UM logo in front. #CaneLock http://t.co/HalPQHI6pJ


No idea if Redwine picks UM or not, but logo on the table is for JJ



I see this ass-kicking is going full-force today. All as expected.


Oh no, we suck again! But what did you guys expect with a green mile coach? Recruits ain't dumb, I kn I wouldn't sign on with this mess. We're lucky we got what we got.


Marcus lewis too the Noles...... SMH!


FSU always close strong. UF are SEC, enough said.


Its the Cloud folks!!!


Here's a summary of where we stand at this point:

Committed & signed:
Lawrence Cager, WR, 4-star
Ryan Fines, DL, 3-star
Tyler Gauthier, OL, 3-star
Jamie Gordinier, LB, 3-star
Michael Jackson, DB, 4-star
Robert Knowles, DB, 3-star
Brendan Loftus, OL, 3-star
Hayden Mahoney, OL, 3-star
Richard McIntosh, Jr., DL, 3-star
Bar Milo, OL, 4-star

Jaquan Johnson, DB, 3-star
Jahair Jones, OL, 3-star
Scott Patchan, DE, 4-star
Charles Perry, LB, 3-star
Jerome Washington, TE, 4-star

Waiting for:
Terrell Chatman, WR, 3-star, 3:30 p.m.
Tyree St. Louis, OL, 4-star, 10 a.m.
Mark Walton, RB, 4-star

Committed & lost today:

We might want:
Sheldrick Redwine, 3-star, 11 a.m.
Dexter Williams, RB, 4-star, 11 a.m.
Austrian Robinson, DE, 3-star, noon
Kendrick Norton, DT, 3-star, 2 p.m.
Shelton Johnson, DE, 3-star, 3 p.m.
Kevin Scott, DT, 4-star, 4 p.m.

We didn't get:
Torrance Gibson, QB, 4-star, OSU
Antonio Callaway, WR, 3-star, UF
Marcus Lewis, CB, 4-star, FSU


Canezitis, we basically agree. The failures of this class and the continued failure of having a loser head coach are entirely on James and Shalala's hands. They created this mess and failed to fix it when the solution was obvious. At least one will be gone in a couple of months, and I'm hopeful this decision causes James to lose his job as well.

WR Lawrence Cager in

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 04, 2015 at 08:51 AM

Whew! I was worried about this one. Cager looks like he's probably the best of the WRs that UM had a realistic shot at.


Is it true Lewis NEVER visited FSU?


According to Rivals Miami is 5th in the ACC... 6th if you count ND. But hey, we're 3rd in the coastal!

Posted by: UMike | February 04, 2015 at 08:19 AM

Lowest ranked UM recruiting class in a decade? Very few recruits from the State of South Florida? Completely out-recruited AGAIN by FSU and UF? How do you spell . . .
(Excuse me for a moment. I have to vomit).
. . . P-A-T-H-E-T-I-C ???


David Furones @DavidFurones90 · 19s 20 seconds ago

It's official. Sheldrick Redwine picks the #Canes. Miami flips Louisville CB commit. #TheU @AndreMHsports @Manny_Navarro

Looks like FIU's commitment list

Old Skool

Rather than wallow in negativity, let met note that

Al Golden is a nice guy and getting nicer every year. After finishing 6 and 7, I figure he's got six more years before he reaches niceness Nirvana

From The K to The U.



Cloudy with a chance of pillars


Cheer up folks, remember what happened in 2013...nothin',nothin',nothin',nothin',nothin'...COLEY!...then nothin' for the rest of the day.

Maybe this time we can get a Williams sandwich.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Too funny around here today.


@ChristyChirinos: Some quick details on Redwine: can play both corner and safety, had 33 tackles and seven INTs last year.
