McTen Balling Boy! Sheldon McClellan is clearly our best and most important player. Best to believe that Jack. Go Canes! Beat NC State!

The basketball team has been known to play up or down to the competition in recent years. I think that's still the case with this year's squad, but so far, they've found ways to win these battles. Only three losses at this point of the season and three wins against ranked teams is impressive.
And Coach L is one of the best, a pure winner.

Go Canes

Coach L is one of the top 5 coaches in college basketball.

No if, ands or buts about it.

orange 'n green in the vein

That duke team is one of the worst in 20 years.

Of course the only home loss the Champs took last season was by the Pimp's stable so even with that fact better blue chips for the league's de facto direction setter wouldn't have changed the outcome.

Go Canes!

Coach L's decision to stick with Angel R. as the starting PG paid off against Duke. You can see the experience of a 5-year senior pay off against a less experienced Duke squad. AR isn't always as consistent as we would like, but when he is on, his passing and quickness helps take the Canes to another level. "Newton is the best sixth man in college basketball," according to Dicky V, and next season he will be a top point guard. It benefits the Canes to have two great PGs, with different skill sets contributing at a high level. Coach L knows what he is doing.

Also, I love to see the Canes play with defensive intensity. When they do, they are a different kind of team

Go Canes!

Yeah, I agree 100%.

Now, talk to me about that football team...

Yep.

I love how coach K cries about the fans chanting over-rated. Like we haven't had to listen to the 4.0s chant their lame ass sayings. He is sour grapes but no one calls him on it.

Go Canes!

Preach Chris.

Coach L = Mark Dantonio

CMR is scrambling, and I like some of the recruits they have identified and are going after.

I don't like what I am hearing about Byrd, but in the end, I think he will realize his best chance to win a championship and make it to the league is here in Coral Gables. Coach Scott will not coach your position, and he is a used car salesman.

Knoxville has to beat Athens and Gainesville every year just to get to the SEC championship game, and they fail every year because they don't have enough talent. CMR will win 10 or more games next year, and there will be a steady procession of NFL picks coming from the U. Butch Jones will loose 3 or more SEC games, and Tennessee will have an NFL pick here or there, but will not compare with the U.

Our next DL commit may be Tyreic Martin. Kool was recruiting him to Mizzou and he's lost 2 DL coaches since he committed. Most recent was a guy they replaced Kool with, who took job with the Eagles.

The stuff the Cameron Crazies yell puts Duke in no position to say anything about what other teams students chant

Incredible run they're having .... winning 9 straight. If they can keep it up there's a good chance they'll get past Napoli to claim first place in Serie A and make some noise in the Champions League as well. Bayern, however, will be a tough out in the round of 16.

Go Canes!

This year is gravy if they keep the gang together. Pogba loves it there, so does Dybala and Morata, the D is among the best anywhere. Next year could be major.

Just saw FSU's schedule online.

They have a pretty tough start to their schedule. We will catch them at a very good time.

Play Ole Miss, at Louisville, at a much improved USF team, then UNC leading into our game.

Lur-ker

These Dugans tweets. A little strange. He's a coach, not a teenager. But, whatever.

@r81Dugans: Morning fam!!! Your biggest haters are normally the ones you've done the most for!! #Hello #haters #morning

CoCane

It's called relating to the youth. Something Folden and his minions didn't enough of, if at all...

Ohio_Cane

What Co said. He may end up being an elite recruiter at a big-time school like Miami.

Here's what ESPN thinks of ACC schedules:

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/90586/breaking-down-acc-schedules-who-has-the-toughest-stretch-month-year

Bottom line: If you want to win it all, you need to beat them all. In which order doesn't matter.

Lur-ker

Whatever. His donk tweets are more youth oriented, I get those. That one sounded like a beef. Weird.

CaneRock

I assume that tweet was directed at Williams? His other tweet, where He said something about "I don't know who's giving these kids advice", seemed to be directed at Bruce...we're signing Bruce sooooooo...

Lur-ker

Williams? The receiving recruit? Or that other guy that he recruited at USF?

Ohio_Cane

Williams IS the other guy he recruited at USF. Flipped from them to us when he was hired.

### This is one of the types of subplots that makes sports so interesting: Most recruiting services say the best recruit in this UM class is cornerback Tyler Byrd. And who’s the person charged with taking him away from Miami?

Larry Scott, Miami’s interim coach for the final six games last season. Scott, now Tennessee’s tight ends coach, has been courting Byrd, and Byrd has agreed to take a visit to Knoxville this week. Tennessee began pursuing Byrd vigorously after Scott joined the staff, not a coincidence.

Based on what Byrd has said, Scott apparently isn’t doing any negative-recruiting against Miami. That’s not surprising; Scott is a classy guy.

Another factor that has UM feeling a bit anxious: Byrd lives with Volunteer running back commit Carlin Fils-aime and considers him a brother. Fils-aime has been committed to the Vols since July and will join Byrd in Knoxville this weekend.

UM must hope that Byrd doesn’t fall in love with the Tennessee coaching staff and the UT campus this weekend. Byrd has said Tennessee has a lot of ground to cover to reach Miami’s level in his eyes.

### UM, with no offensive linemen committed, learned this week that four-star guard Johncarlo Valentin canceled his visit to UM this weekend. But according to Canesport, three-star Orlando-based Tre Johnson (an Illinois commit) will visit.

### UM lost out on Virginia-based three-star defensive back J.J. Givens, who picked N.C. State today.

### New receivers coach Ron Dugans, appearing on WQAM’s Hurricane Hotline with Joe Zagacki and Don Bailey, said Stacy Coley made a “great decision” coming back to school and “is going to be a great leader…. Lawrence Cager has done a great job. Braxton Berrios has done a really good job. Darrell Langham has talent.”…. In recruiting, he said he’s looking for toughness at his position: “They’ve already called us prima donnas at that position.”…. Dugans previously coached the Dolphins’ DeVante Parker at Louisville and said: “Everything you threw his way, he was going to snag it. I’m excited for the kid. I know how hard he’s worked.”

### New UM cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph, the only former Canes player on the assistant coaching staff (besides head coach Mark Richt, obviously), said on Hurricane Hotline than UM will play “a good amount of man to man. It’s going to look like we’re doing something but not.” (In other words, disguising.) He said that’s what NFL top five defenses do.

Rumph said he likes “long corners, anyone similar to me. There’s tremendous support for our corners. We’re not going to leave you on an island 90 percent of the time.”

### Rumph said defensive coordinator Manny Diaz has emphasized what others before him have said about recruiting: “Coach Diaz wants to lock down South Florida… I feel like no one is going to tell me no… Who’s going to tell me no?”

---------------------------------

^^ We did NOT "lose out" on JJ Givens. He wasn't a take. Staff feels confident getting at least 1 of with Finley and/or Miller

Ok. I don't follow as closely as you.

Well, I hope that's not it. You wouldn't want a coach to be beefing with the kid on social media. Wouldn't be smart. Can't believe that Richt would approve of that. I'm hoping it's something else.

Ohio_Cane

If U want to REALLY get into following coaches for recruiting, go here. Richt and staff's flights:

I HIGHLY doubt it's directed negatively towards any kid. Actually, I'll guarantee it's not.

Ohio_Cane

1/29 official visitors:

Eli Stove

Romeo Finley (teammates)

DT Tyreic Martin (I expect him to commit)

OT Tre Johnson (I expect him to commit)

------------------------------------------

Note: We can't get Stove if we don't get Finley. Even then, it'll be tough to get Stove from Auburn, but more likely

Go Canes!

I agree Ohio.

Lur-ker

Ohio or Mike what's your call on Byrd?

Ohio_Cane

One key commit that Miami will be monitoring over the final weekend before National Signing Day is cornerback Tyler Byrd.

Byrd is giving Tennessee a look because his teammate, running back Carlin Fils-Aime, is committed there and the two have a close relationship.

The relationship between Fils-Aime and Byrd is closer than a friendship. The two are like brothers. They have lived together for the last few years and are extremely close.

Early in the recruiting process, Fils-Aime hoped he could join Byrd at Miami, but the Hurricanes never showed significant interest. Tennessee, now, is doing their best of selling the opportunity of the two friends continuing their playing career together in Knoxville.

With that being said, Byrd is very high on Miami. He has a great respect for the program, impressed by the academics that UM can offer, and a big factor weighing in Miami’s favor is that the school is a two hour drive away from home. Byrd wants his family to be able to come to his games.

Beyond that, Miami has a legitimate big need for Byrd and that has been illustrated by the manner that Mark Richt has recruited him. Once the NCAA dead period ended, Byrd was the first recruit that Richt visited. Richt believes that Byrd is the most important commit that the Hurricanes need to keep in the class.

Miami returns starting cornerback Corn Elder, a rising senior, this season and beyond that they have four cornerbacks returning that will fight for the remaining playing time. The Hurricanes need a true freshman to come in and compete for immediate playing time and Byrd was identified as that player in the 2016 class.

The path to early playing time at Tennessee won't be as smooth as the Volunteers are returning their top three cornerbacks. Tennessee is also adding early enrollees Marquill Osborne and JUCO transfer D.J. Henderson this semester. Tennessee is also considered the favorite to land top 50 prospect Nigel Warrior on National Signing Day. With that being said, Byrd would be in line to compete for playing time in his second season at UT.

While Tennessee does have a lot of momentum and excitement with Byrd right now, Miami is hopeful that once his visit to Knoxville is over he will take a step back and not get caught up in that hype. Miami presents an opportunity to be a three or four year starter and Byrd understands that. The Hurricanes also present an option that allows his family and friends to come to all of his home games.

Byrd is expecting Miami cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph and safeties coach Ephraim Banda to visit today and UM will look to sell themselves before he makes his trip to Tennessee.

Ohio_Cane

Ohio or Mike what's your call on Byrd?

Posted by: Lur-ker | January 28, 2016 at 10:10 AM
----------------------------------------

I think he sticks, but UT visit with his "brother" does worry me a bit.

Da U N Houston

Also, based on recruiting rules, when UT came to the house, they obviously met with both, does that count as the in-home visit for one and not the other, meaning they can get 2 in-home in one week?

Does Carlin Fils-aime live with Byrd's family or does Bryd live with the Fils-aime? Doesn't matter, just wondering.

How is the convo between Carlin Fils-aime and Richt when he is there to see Bryd?

Really hope Byrd sticks!

Ohio_Cane

Is it bad that I'm more confident in a kid who's not committed (Richards) than I am with one who's committed (Byrd)? LOL

Few of you are getting worked up for nothing when it comes to recruits. There are much more pressing matters in life than who visited where and what we think will happen.

I know I know.....some think its fun but for those who sit on the edge of your seat when it comes to recruiting news is, well...not healthy. :-)

Go Canes!

I agree with Raize.

So I guess I'll leave Ahmmon Richards' front yard and go home now.
