Looking at Clemson's 2020 class with 9 verbals. Already have 5 offensive linemen committed plus 2 Dee Tackles. The 2 areas we usually have trouble recruiting, although we do have a couple Dt's committed for once.

Happy St. Patty’s Day. Spring practice starts next wee for #TNM, and the Coach Manny Diaz era takes the practice field for the first time

JCane

Canes lose both of the last two vs. UNC, blowing another big opportunity on the road vs a ranked opponent, as they did vs. FU, to take a series after winning the opener. Lots of big hits given up early to lose an early three run lead off a HR today.

Terrance Sullivan

Yeah that was disheartening JCane

86Cane

So what U are sying is that the UM baseball team is better but not good enough to beat the better teams 2 out of three games just yet?

I can dig it.

86Cane

FSU, UF and get this, the little school that could never compete with UM, also known as UCF, are going to the big dance but Miami is not. I sure hope that they don't steal any recruits from us?

******************************************

Will be cheering for UCF as I personally know a couple of the players on the team.

ACC head coaches 70 and older who made the NCAA tournament this year:

Jim Boeheim (74)
Mike Krzyzewski (72)
Leonard Hamilton (70)

I guess Coach L (69) has something to look forward to next season :-)

86Cane

BWC...I agree with you. EVERY coach in college basketball should be required to be 70 or older. My only question is why didn't Miami hire a 70 year old head football coach to replace the young, spry 58 year old Mark Richt since that seems to be all the rage these days?

Go Canes!!

Cade Weldon transferring.

Spring football begins tuesday and still no Martell decision by NCAA.

Love the Stones but their concert is messing up the spring game.

I purposely scheduled their tour so that the Canes can have the spring game in Orlando. Works out perfectly....

raizecane

Cade Weldon — one of the quarterbacks set to compete for the starting job — is transferring from Miami.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think Miami knows about the Martell decision. This is why Case is transferring. Why would he announce he's transferring now? Miami is good at keeping secrets!

I second that motion.

BigWindyCane1

IMO, the NCAA should implement a rule to allow all players to transfer without repercussions if their head coach leaves. Coaching changes are beyond a player's control, and can impact a player's experience as a college athlete.

But the NCAA won't do it. The highly-paid coaches won't like this rule to be implemented, but it is the least the NCAA can do to help the amateur athletes get the most out of their college experience.

If you think about it, Urban Meyer recruits Martell to be his QB, then Meyer announced he is retiring. It is only fair that Martell not be punished because his coach leaves.

It is going to be a great spring for #TNM

Good question. The Canes missed out on Bobby Bowden (89), Howard Schnellenberger (85), Lou Holtz (82), and Jimmy Johnson (75).

Butch Davis is only 67, so in three years, he will be ready to coach the Canes again ;-)

Actually a 2 1/2 drive for me instead of 8 so I'll take it....sometimes I just like to type and gripe!

Go Canes!!

It’s Clemson, Bama and everyone else:

ACC head coaches 70 and older who made the NCAA tournament this year:

Jim Boeheim (74)
Mike Krzyzewski (72)
Leonard Hamilton (70)

They made the NCAA tournament because they consistently recruit good players. UM is not in the NCAA tournament because our head coach seemingly lacks the ability (any longer?) to recruit enough good players, and not merely because of his age - although that may be a factor too.

VA Cane

Herb,
I think from 69 to 73 The Stones are untouchable....with Mick Taylor/Keef as the players, and Charlie and Wyman holding the beat...Bobby Keys Jim Price on horns...and Nicky Hopkins on piano....I have nearly every show from those tours...CD vinyl....and many bootleg cassettes...they were incredible...after Mick Taylor left...74...still good but never like 69-73! The shows are unreal!

T Sully and CGNC....Potboy out the door probably best....we will be ok.....I hope Williams gets reps and the Martell kid will get approved to play.
Pornboy is not the answer!!!!!

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir VA.

Go Canes!!

Incredible that spring ball starts tomorrow and yet again the POS ncaa still hasn’t done anything on Martell after rubber stamping a transfer for the suckeyes.

Sarasota 'cane

The Dolphins got rid of Tannehill and picked up FitzTragic from the Bucs?

Am I missing something here? Does Fitz have a connection to the new coaching staff?

I don't want to be negative so early in the season but I can't take much more of this. I hope the new regime knows something I don't.

Go Canes!!

The dolphins plan is to fail spectacularly in 2019 with hopes of finally getting a franchise QB next year or 2020.

TonyCane

I hate the Fitzpatrick pickup. I had rather that they roll with Luke Falk this year and go 1-15 or 0-16. I would rather them trade or cut anyone not on their rookie deals this year. They have been bad for TWO decades. It’s approaching Green Bay and Tampa Bay 70s and 80s level of bad. They have to get the top pick in the 2020 draft. A meaningless 4 win season just perpetuates the sorry state of the Dolphins franchise.

And it has to be 2020, because I have a strong feeling that the lockout may wipe out the 2021 season...with Lawrence remaining in school.

TonyCane

Go Canes, I can almost guarantee that they clear him...in 52 weeks.

Go Canes!!

Perry turning heads at practice today??!!

This is going to be a really interesting competition.

BigWindyCane1

Video of Martell looks good. Martell definitely got better coaching. Glad to hear that Perry is turning heads. Hopefully, we have a real QB competition and some outstanding play at the most critical position.

As for Cam Davis, I think DeeJay Dallas will have to split reps with Davis and Lingard because they bring a home-run threat every time they touch the ball. This could open up the offense in many ways.

thirstybuzzardcane

We'll see a lot of 2 back sets, Windy. We have too much talent not to.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think any of our QB's will be just fine. The coaching did not help them at all

thirstybuzzardcane

Pickney interview is very telling on the difference of this years offense to last years.

https://twitter.com/ChristyChirinos/status/1108032613980225537?s=19

86Cane

Two questions:

1. Is it within NCAA rules for Miami to have a good QB?

2. Who wants to bet that the refs throw a flag the first time a UM player goes in motion? They will not believe their eyes and will automtically think it is illegal motion?

Terrance Sullivan

LMBAO at it was all coaching fault and the players are blameless for last years debacle. Pure Comedy.

thirstybuzzardcane

You're dumb if you really think the coaches didn't put our QB's in terrible positions! When you run the same 5 plays out of the same formation the whole game, your QB's are toast!

thirstybuzzardcane

Brevin knows what's up. Sounds like the coaches were the problem to me. Can't wait to see this offense!

https://twitter.com/_JoshRWhite/status/1108033113949700099?s=19

Go Canes!!

Let the competition begin!
