I'll give you that but STILL, I am done with average. I want to see some dominating run blocking by a UM OL just once more before I die PLEASE. Has not been seen in these parts for a good while. Our poor RBs get hit at or behind the LOS way too often. I am not happy with the OL or the OL coach to be honest. IJS

NEW BLOG IS UP!

Go Canes!

Healthy Linder and McDermott both start imo.

CoCane

St.Louis has been worse then meh. Linder was playing hurt. I have this strange feeling injury hinders performance... Maybe?

86Cane

A healthy Linder starts over Gauthier. St. Louis won't beat out McDermott for guard...

Posted by: CoCane | January 21, 2017 at 08:30 PM

Not so fast my friend! Linder and McDermott are nice legacy names but BOTH have a LOT to prove they belong on any top performing OLine at UM. Both were just "Meh" last year and very beatable on the OL.

Coach L is doing his best Kaaya impression before he leaves campus. 0-5 in last 5 vs top 25.

They point was...he was dropped from Bama just liked we dropped Dingle and Scott so him decommiting means ZERO...but he was already a CANES LOCK...who didn't think he was coming here?

TruCane81

Alaska would be a very cool place to spend 5 months, lol, and most of Wyoming they can keep.

Posted by: The Dude | January 19, 2017 at 09:30 PM


Dude, why the disdain for Wyoming?

Serious question.

Herbieibis

Beside our wr needs, cb is our other biggest need. We played last year with necessities.

BigWindyCane1

Dean is big and fast. Dean has all the tools to start at corner next season. I liked him at South DADE. They were very good when he was there, and he was a shut down corner. Glad to see him get his grades together and put himself in position to play for the Canes. Dean can play right away. Dean is important recruit for this class in a position of need.

Go Canes!

So now we're talking how he didn't have a "commitable" offer?

Maybe they dropped him or maybe they realized he wanted to be a Cane so they looked elsewhere.

Either way, who cares.

Read somewhere he's rated the #1 Juco corner in the country, our biggest position of need. And he's Dade guy?

Give me a bunch more like that and I'll take them all day long.

Major loss of key staff members tony. The vast majority of them all went over to 247. Since then rivals budget and quality has gone down hil while 247 has steadily risen and is hands down the most respected recruiting site second only to ESPN.

TonyCane

What happened to Rivals? Was it cutbacks to staff? Or did word get out about their flawed weighting?

TonyCane

On a side note, my 11 year old broke his arm in a basketball tournament Dec 4th. He just got cleared to play yesterday. His team is in another tournament today. First game...AGAINST THE TEAM THAT BROKE HIS ARM.

My son's team does lose, but he scores 15 in his return (almost half the team's points) and has an outstanding performance. That's how you come back from adversity!

BigWindyCane1

More than any other player on the Canes roster, McIntosh's growth from a backup DE into a top tier DT demonstrates the ineptness of the previous staff under DNo and Golden. Now, with the Canes DL under the guidance of coach Kul, the Canes will regularly have high NFL draft picks on the DL. The Canes might have had an NFL prospect this year if AQM didn't have such an attraction to expensive cars.

The Canes don't have many DL recruits, but Johnson, Ford, and Garvin are the kind of traditional "Miami (as in old school Butch, JJ, etc.)" recruits that this program was built on - Explosive off the ball, athletic, hard-working, well-conditioned, loves making plays and has fun out there. These traits matter more than stars or hype. Size and stats alone don't cut it. This seems to be the biggest shift in recruiting focus under CMR. I think a few coaches under the previous staff, like Hurley Brown, tried to recruit traditional "University of Miami-type" players, but Paul Williams, DNo and Golden extended offers to too many recruits that lacked those key traits.

NicKane

Go Canes!
I said he's a S Fla kid and UM has definitely been the hometown team for Dade and Broward.

Posted by: Go Canes! | January 20, 2017 at 11:29 AM

And don't forget us in Palm Beach county go. UM is the hometown team for the majority of all the kids up here too. The spring practice up here last year at oxford was packed full canes kids/fans. Around 10,000 deep!

IMO, you couldn't pay me to live in Miami! My town of Stuart Fl is probably the best around!

Posted by: Fatso's Personnel Eating Trainer | January 20, 2017 at 01:43 AM

Couldn't agree more buddie. I live in Loxahatchee and I wouldn't trade the peace and quit up here for the world. Stuart is a great town too, the downtown part where the Stuart boathouse is, is a great place to hangout.

NicKane

They are 100% a joke, because Garvin is a monster. While "stars matter", people don't realize part of the ranking is based on how many subscribers a certain fanbase has for that site.

Committed to Bama and Bama has 100k subscribers and that recruit will have a higher rating than if he flips to Miami and we have 50k subscribers. Just an example, not anywhere near exact numbers, obviously

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | January 18, 2017 at 12:49 PM

That's why the only one I pay attention to is ESPN rankings Ohio. We got 9 four stars on there and like only 4/5 on all the other sites. ESPN is very objective in the rankings and doesn't play the BS subscriber game like rivals, scout and 247. 247 is pretty good but let's be honest, scout and rivals are dead.

Go Canes!

Three key commits in the next 72 hours?

Posted by: The Dude | January 20, 2017 at 08:43 PM

Coaches prefer freshmen over transfers...plus what has Holmes really done to make him a must-get???

Also how many WR's do you want on the roster because the 2018 class is loaded and I heard that we're supposed to be getting 5-6 in that class

Go Canes!

Excuse me, Holmes?

CoCane

F*ck Holmes

Dude on a Pale Horse

Does taking Holmes set a bad precedent though? We dont want kids to think if it doesnt work out at the school you spurned Miami for, then you can always come home again.

Dude on a Pale Horse

He's what a Jr? So he counts for 2 years... I say bring him in regardless, but wait until the other guys sign their LOI so he doesnt scare anyone away for whatever reason.

Dude on a Pale Horse

WW,

what do we have to lose in taking Holmes? I say bring the kid in, he's got the speed to contribute at KR. We are pretty far under the scholarship limit as it is.

CoCane

I agree WWIN

WWIN

Posted by: Herbieibis | January 20, 2017 at 05:46 PM

If we get those WR's we won't pick up Holmes...he's a backup plan in case we don't get those others

WWIN

Yeah McIntosh and Knorton were the starters

BigWindyCane1

Definitely- McIntosh is a beast! NFL prospect for sure!

CoCane

Windy,

Don't forget about McIntosh.

BigWindyCane1

The Canes have two very good DTs in Norton and Willis. The best tandem the Canes have had in a decade. They can be special and will be the anchor of the D. Coach Kul really knows what he is doing. Kul moves Willis to DT, and he has his DTs among the leaders in TFLs on the team.

With the returning LBs, I don't think opponents will run the ball effectively on this Canes defense at all. This will be a top 10 defense. The DL recruits will exceed expectations.

Herbieibis

Hope these dreams come true, with the wr's and also a possibility of Holmes coming in from N.D. The Herb is looking ahead and after next year we could be out 5 DT'S, that's if Willis and Norton leave early, so although we have Ford we still need to add another DT or we could be a sieve waiting to happen.

WWIN

The mix of a huge catch radius guy like Njoku and the 2 speedsters will really make it alot easier for a QB.


Speaking of Njoku, David is going to kill it in the NFL. He is getting high praise and they still dont realize this guy is just getting started.

Ten recruits who could flip before National Signing Day

Jhavonte Dean, CB, Alabama

Dean emerged as the No. 4 cornerback in Scout.com’s 2017 junior college rankings while excelling at Blinn College in Brenham, Tex, but he played his high school football at South Dade Senior High in Homestead, Fla. That’s why it’s no surprise he’s showing interest in Miami. After visiting the program earlier this month, there seems a decent chance Dean could join head coach Mark Richt’s first full recruiting class in Coral Gables. Dean would be a promising addition to a Hurricanes secondary that’s already set to bring in highly coveted Christopher Columbus (Fla.) High safety Trajan Bandy and should compete for playing time right away following the departure of second-team All-ACC member Corn Elder.

After all is said and done he's still a S Fla kid. I hope he's not doing that to his hometown team.

If we get Thomas and Harley that is ALOT of speed. With Nojoku we get an excellent RZ target with enough wheels. Pouncey seems to be a good all around rec.

Those 4 would be a huge injection of talent and we have a pretty good chance of landing this haul.
