My thing is this...

Give me good players not stars... in saying that I'm saying look at the player and not his star ranking. For example... Pat Surtain and Tyler Campbell. Surtain is a 5☆ and ranked #1 CB in the nation and Campbell is a 4☆...but I would take Campbell over Surtain all day and a lot of people would...but should we take Surtain just bcuz he's a 5☆??? And I'd take Jobe over plenty of 5☆'s!

Who would you rather have Hightower or Pope? Yeah I love both of em but if you could only have one who you going with?

I don't know about u but The Herb says give me some star power, like we're hauling in now. We've tried the other way with a bunch of 3's and some 4's here and there and what had that got us? A majority of the teams that have played and won the ship have a whole lot of star power and the key word I used was Majority.

WW...

Your argument against Stars consists only of making a case for one elite high star carrier being better than another elite high star carrier.

U disproved your own point.

What Willy meant to say:

Stars don't matter. As long as the player has at least 4 of them.

Aubrey Hill hired by FIU to be their WR coach. Florida, then Miami under Shannon. Following the Shapiro scandal, he went to coach at Carol City. Now, with a state championship for the Chiefs, Hill is back coaching FBS college football with Butch. Hill knows South Florida and did a great job for CAROL City, getting them back to a championship level. Hill can't compete in recruiting against the U, but he will recruit well and I will be surprised if FIU doesn't become a powerhouse in the Sun Belt Conference

BigWindyCane1

The draw of coming back to UM for one more season? Kaaya says he believes the Hurricanes could have competed for a National Championship.


“I thought about it, but this was an opportunity I have dreamed about since I was six years old,” Kaaya said at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. “I think I could have won a National Championship and Conference Championship if I stayed at Miami, but it is the ultimate dream of mine to play in a Super Bowl.”

BigWindyCane1

“I think Miami will be in good hands,” Kaaya said. “We won our first bowl game in ten years and we finished with a five game winning streak and that hadn’t been done since 2001. Coach Richt will have them on the right track soon. I think next season they will be a playoff contender.

Y'all not getting it! SMH

I'm saying NOBODY is setting out to get all 3☆ players! As a COACH... would you look at player and SEE that he’s good but his star ranking is a 3☆ so you say well never mind kid my eyes must have lied to me lol! We didn't win with Golden The Herb cuz we didn't have a COACH! Lol

Do y'all honestly think college COACHES look at ☆ rankings over film and live evaluations. I can guarantee CMR don't give a damn about ☆ rankings... he cares about if you can play or not!

5☆ #1 CB in the COUNTRY is a BIG difference to a 4☆!

But anyways... look at our 2016 class... where were they ranked? Now tell me who had a better class than that??? What about a player like Gurvan...not highly ranked but dude is a BEAST!

WWIN

If Rumph wants to give a player a scholarship he has to get the approval from CMR first...you think CMR asks what's his ranking or let me see his film???

A. Lets see the film?

B. How many stars does he have?

C. Are there any character issues?

D. How is his work ethic and motor?

E. All of the above?

Old Skool

If I remember correctly Coker was a star-gazer. That why he went after turf-face

Go Canes!

Kyle Wright was the consensus #1 player in the country as a senior.

He had a damn fine freshman year here then began to slowly regress year after year in large part because of the weight of continued horrible coaching.

TruCane81

Hell yeah that was during Recievergeddon.

I grew up with Lance Leggett. He was a skinny kid who turned into a freakish and I do mean freak athlete. I threw him the sickest no look alley oop in a pick up game while he was running behind me. Sportscenter worthy.

His dad was a local track coach and good guy who kept him in line. I was surprised he struggled at the U but the attention of his rapid transition to a big time prospect went to his head a little.

He probably saw things in Coker's program that turned him off, considering the type of program
We grew up in. I still thought it was no excuse for his antics.

Not developing big time prospects like Wright and Leggett was the beginning of the end and cost us some serious title shots. We would be counting rings on both hands with better recruiting and team management. I really liked Coker before, but some guys are coordinators, and that's their ceiling.

TonyCane

I cant speak to the coaching, but the primary reason why Kyle Wright regressed was lack of surrounding talent. For whatever reason, Coker could not recruit wide receivers. You cannot sign 1 wide receiver in two recruiting cycles and think that you can overcome attrition. Wright started his tenure with Miami with a corp that included Andre Johnson, Roscoe Parish, Sinorice Moss, and 5 star recruit Ryan Moore. By 2006, he was playing with a Lance Leggett, Darnell Jenkins, Khalil Jones, and a young San Shields. Remember punter Monroe? Or the corner Hill? Coker had to convert them to wide receivers because we didn't have sufficient depth after Ryan Moore was suspended. If you look at the roster at the time, you will also see a very high number of walk ons too. Miami had less talent in 2006 and 2007 at that position than at any time since the 1970s. Its why Kyle went down...as the talent attrited away, so did his ability to score.

Posted by: WWIN | March 07, 2017 at 07:59 PM

Pope

CoCane

Ryan Moore was still there in 2006. The depth was ugly but... Moore 5*, Leggett 5* Jenkins 4* and Olsen at TE. If K. Wright and that core of skill players were developed properly they would have killed sh*t.

It should have went like this:

Moore a big physical possession target. Leggett stretching the field with his speed and height to go over the top. Jenkins in the slot. Olsen hitting the seams and flats. Wright orchestrating the symphony with a Death Star for a arm and the mobility to escape pressure and extend plays... Who knows? Maybe with good coaching Jones could've been a half way decent #4 reciever...

:-(

Wasted!

Go Canes!

My take on the new QB Committ.

I checked his film and A few pluses and a few minuses.

1. The kid is huge, already a college ready body. This is a big difference from other signal callers like a Jack Allison who still is not as big as this kid, and Perry who needs 12-18 months in the weight room to take the pounding of ACC defenses.

2. Despite being such a big kid he has a tight compact delivery, often times long limb guys will have a wind up like a baseball pitcher, but his football is tucked close to the ear and he keeps his elbow tight, this allows for a quicker more consistent platform.

3. He is a better athlete the Kaaya, he is not quite Andrew Luck but not like a 99 Dan Marino or a 14 Kaaya.

4. Had a good internal clock, his makes his drop hits his backfoot and Boom ball is out, time after time step step step backfoot boom ball is out. I can tell he has been coached up and IMG and summer camp tours will help him improve.

The Minuses are

1. He needs better footwork, his weight transfer is very inconsistent, sometimes throwing off his backfoot sometimes while weight on on his front foot.

2, Despite his size he does not appear to have a howitzer. His arm is comparable to Kaaya's it looks to be fine for college but it is not elite. The kid gets more on his throws when his weight transfer is correct. With better footwork and more development I think he can squeeze a lil more out of that arm.

3. Did not see tons of off speed or touch throws. Like many HS level QB's 95% of his throws are one speed. At the college game he will have to learn to modify his throwing platform at times and modulate his speed on throws.

Overall I like him as a prospect, he is a kid with the size and ability you want. I think 4 star is about right for him, with our current QB depth he would likely RS. This kid with another summer of QB camps, a year more of HS ball and a RS year is two years from playing any snaps for us and I suspect under Richt this kid would really improve and have a chance to be an all conference type of QB. Another quality pick up for us I look forward to seeing him develop.

Nowadays there is a very very strong correlation between starts and success. You won't find very many instances of poorly regarded players ending up game changers.

Does cmr ask how many stars a player has? No. But I guarantee you that if his evaluations ran consistently counter to the star system, we would have a disaster on our hands.

Hassan

The eval process has become a lot better.

In the past at all levels people would fall in love with Measurable s. You saw a lot of HT/WT/Speed guys rated at 5 stars based only on those things. Now the film eval's have become a lot better. For 1 things the Films themselves are a lot better. In the past films were incomplete, basically just high lights. Now the different evals have much better quality and complete tape as well as Camp eval's, real testing done, and live game eval's. Much more through and complete Eval's are being done and the people writing the eval's have become much more experienced and better. Now it is just really the late bloomers that a program can get on early before other teams notice. There are kids that grow 4-5 inches between jr and sr year. or put on 40 lbs, or switch schools or positions and a light comes on, or they dont start til their SR year etc. It is those late bloomers that schools can still find diamonds in the rough. This is why staying in the coaches offices and asking not just about the stars on the team but other players is very important. The local coaches can let us know when they have a guy that is going to blow up on the recruiting scene before others really catch on.

Go Canes!

I think stars are obviously important, though individual ratings are at times heavily influenced by outside forces.

Been said here countless times that once a kid commits to a big time program with heavy subscription rates, sites like rivals will often give them a bump. On the other hand guys like Joe Jackson and Garvin who just commit and stay quiet are often overlooked.

^^^ Russell. Kid is a 3 star but hits like a wrecking ball and is very fast. Ive been saying if you watch his film, you wouldnt let your kid play football.

Buy using the word "modulate" will cost you five minutes in the penalty box for a major infraction. You can't use word like modulate on a sports blog.
