Bubba Baxa in the portal-his girl staying back to entertain the troops

The Herb

U mean chip shot is leaving? Say it ain't so. There's another ship that was wasted. Now put it to good use.

Goodbye Mr. Yips

hopefully a few of our OL's & QB's took the same class bubba & tyreic did . . . learning how to read the writing on the wall

alpine

. . . but do i understand this right: we can only sign 25 in one class even if we have 30 openings?

alpine

someone give me the cruiting-numbers seminar for dummies

Now if rumph and Patke enter the portal I’ll feel a little better

25 is all. There are other parameters but u have to pull up them bylaws. Some could count towards last year, if u didn't feel your quota but with the portal and players jumping in at all times of the year, it can get confusing..
It's like an up hill battle to get to 85. I think before these latest defections we were at like 75 or 76.

BigWindyCane1

TonyCane always has the stats at his fingertips. Amazing!

solarcane

Thanks Tony great post.
Man you can see that stars don't matter if you don't have coaches that develop talent.

There IT is right there.

Imagine being replaced by a player from FIU?

Oh, wait, they beat us last year?

My how times have changed.

86Cane

Tony is Da Man!

BigWindyCane1

The new OC Lashlee sure is saying all the right things! He will get the players excited, and I like the new OL coach Garin Justice. I like GJ’s background as a player, OC and OL coach. He is young and energetic, and wants to be OC or HC at a major program. I just hope CMD stays out of their way, and let them coach

HerbieIbis

Manny knows nothing about offense, couldn't u tell?

raizecane

who is JONATHAN BREWER?

alpine

waldo's brother?

2 good articles that detail the type of problems larranaga has to work thru, since being ncaa/fbi-screwed (i can read on my ipad; can not open here on my compi w/o subscription ... maybe someone else can post links):

How Miami is being affected by — and trying to solve — its never-ending depth issue
JANUARY 17, 2020 4:56 PM

Canes desperately need frontcourt help. Could a seldom-used freshman be ready to chip in?

another thing:
- as i've said several times, i think manny will eventually be a good head coach, despite all his growing pains
. . . that said, one thing i truly dislike about him, is his "blame game" pressers

- coach L NEVER does that, despite having a suitcase full of complaints that he could open & display
. . . he is a class act working as much magic as he can, just rolling up his sleeves and working with what he has
. . . and the last couple years, that hasn't been much

- might there be as accomplished a coach as larranaga be willing to take over the miami program? would blake james be able to find such a person?

. . . i'm sceptical about the answers to the above
. . . and i also think it's too early to show him the door

UMike

There is a way around the 25 limit, I think it has to do with the EE from the previous class. Like if we had 5 EE's we can now sign 30... something like that. I might not be spot on, but I know you can go over 25 and it's because the EE's.

AeroCane

Any updates on the key visitors this weekend?
I sure hope they don’t bring them to the BB game - lol!

orange 'n green in the vein

"The ugly: Miami winning the ACC Coastal

The Hurricanes had as many division titles in 2019 as it had points in the Independence Bowl loss to Louisiana Tech -- zero. I didn't see that coming in August when we made our picks. I had Manny Diaz going 10-2 and winning the ACC Coastal in his first season with the program before losing to Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. Maybe they should learn how to block and find a quarterback who can complete forward passes? Just a thought."

Slurp squad defense force, activate!

TJL

So Bama has to cut players?

"The Tide currently has 90 scholarship players signed for the upcoming 2020 season -- five over the limit"

The Herb

Aero,
2 waste of times and a hopeful.
Most of the writers have William's joining his Cuz at Florida. I don't know how many more times he's going to visit. Came quit a bit in the Fall.
Dunston supposedly is a Texas lean.
King is who we need and we have a shot but when was the last time we had some great news these last few weeks before signing day?
Hope Rumph not taking the lead on those 2 DB's, is all I can say.

The Herb

I guess Saddlewood was right about the tudes, when he visited last year and made the comment the reason he didn't end up at Miami is because losing didn't seem to matter to some of the players. He didn't like the vibe. So our loss was Oaklahoma's gain.

UMike

I think King is leaning towards Arkansas.

solarcane

Randy Shannon and Baker on coach O's list for new DC at LSU.

BigWindyCane1

Canes men basketball team take on #9 at FSU at the Watco Center, starting right now

alpine

go canes bb!!!!!!!!!

(pls play them close, like you are at the moment)

The Herb

UMike,
In the beginning Arky was said to be the destination because of Briles. Going to Maryland today. I don't think he is visiting Ark. Frank's is visiting their. I think us and Maryland are the only 2 places he is going to.
This is the last week to register for classes, so his decision will have to be quick or wait until summer.

alpine

21-21 under 4 minutes to go in 1st half

canes alternately brilliant and clownish on offense
. . . very good defense, though

frosh walker finally sees quite a few minutes; brings some good energy
. . . unfortuantely he misses every basket, no matter how open

alpine

31-30 fsu at the half

. . . heartbreak last minute as waardenburg's dunk misses, riochets deep into fsu hands to give them an easy bucket = a 4-pt swing

. . . immediately, lykes gets a foul and, though he had made 23 straight FT's, he misses both

. . . typical of the way it's been the entire game
. . . and yet, the canes are miraculously down by only 1 to ACC leader and #9 in the nation FSU

BigWindyCane1

If it’s just us and Maryland, we have at last a punchers chance to get D’Erique King. Maryland is active in recruiting down here, and they have the right offense. But the Canes might be the better fit

Terrance M Sullivan

I honestly want Chase Brice from Clemson to come here. Dude Got Moxie and is very mature and from a winning culture. I would love to have King as well but I would priorize Brice. I would let 15, 18, and 5 find other destinations. And I would then have a QB room of Brice, Matocha, TVD, if we luck up with King. Then we can Ride. Just My Thoughts.

alpine

47-46 fsu
11 minutes to go

turn on the game if you haven't been watching!!!

MDCane

The U have really hit rock bottom. We've gone from being Quarterback U to charity case.

alpine

60-54 canes up with 8 min to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sarasota 'cane

Step on their necks Miami!

Go 'canes!

alpine

despite mcgusty also being out injured in 2nd half

alpine

65-58 4 1/2 to go but canes tired
. . . hoe they get some good luck to blow them over the finish ine

alpine

hoe = hope
ine = line
canes up 65-58

alpine

69-69 40 seconds

BigWindyCane1

Overtime

alpine

overtime

poor canes

alpine

canes wearing shirts in which sweat is painted on

ugly as f###

BigWindyCane1

The Canes need a ‘“true” point guard

BigWindyCane1

24 turnovers is unacceptable
