305 Prophet

Well maybe 2o years ago that very well might have happened.

AeroCane

I like that article!!

AeroCane

FYI
Leonard Taylor - 5 star DL announcing 8/6 - it’s canes vs gators - I won’t say anything cause I don’t want to jinx it! Lol
Also, Tyreek sapp, 6’3, 260 4 star DE committed to gators is being ‘pressured’ by manny to make a switch to us before the class fills up (he’s out of st Thomas Aquinas)

HerbieIbis

As long as we get Taylor, I'd take Sapp along for the ride but he better not play games or blink them eyes cause they're are still 3 more wanting in plus a qb.

roachcane77

Agreed on article!

UNDEFEATED in 2020! (WITH or WITHOUT a season.😂)

Seriously though... WHY NOT? New offense, new QB, and STOUT defense!

Let's Go CANES!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Watching the '05 game vs GT. Kyle Wright was awful.

Yes, I put Kyle at the BOTTOM of the heap. (Even below Kirby... 😳)

Andrew Irvins of inside the U has both Leonard Marshall (5 star DL) and Jason Marshall (5 star CB) both of palmetto to the U with a confidence rating of 8 (out of 10)
coupled with J Williams (5 star safety/lb/de) and k kinchins (4 star safety) that would be absolutely amazing on the defensive side!

AeroCane

Killerbeez - 1 question - why watch that game? Lol

The Herb

Aero,
Covid working miracles. Somebody ain't getting in. Playing the hat game on signing day ain't happening this year.

Are any of these prospects a Mike Rumph recruit?

AeroCane

KY
It appears rumph and van dyke; But I would think manny and Banda are involved as well

HerbieIbis

I don't know about Rumph but getting William's sure has changed the scene. Coach Covid, will get some credit, if we get both.
That would leave 2 ships left.
Collier announces on the 11th.
At this point, don't think we need him. Need another WR more or corner.
Alexis, Brown and Willie Smith's son would be on the outside looking in.
Seems like they save that last ship for Garcia if he flips.

I have a feeling that it is already done, just not announced. But hey, what do I now?

AeroCane

58 - hopefully a lot! Garcia would be the icing on the cake if we get Marshall and Taylor!

Love the article, guys. With nom games being played, I predict that The U will be totally undefeated. Who can argue with that?!am still in Florida, but want to go back to Michigan for some nice, cool fall air, and come back down right after the election. I live in Florida now, but hope I can financially hold onto my house in Michigan. Sue breaks up the year.
Hard to imagine that my freshman year at the U, I was in Mahoney Hall, and that building had no A/C. Paying all that money and no A/C. Next year, I moved to the bldg. next door, which had A/C. I think it was called 736.
Enough of that. Take care everyone, stay quarantined and safe.

MLAlumni1970

THANKS FOR THE PHOTO OP IN THE ARTICLE, 86. I AM 72 YEARS OLD NOW, AND ENJOYED THE THRILL ONCE AGAIN!

CGNC

Hi Peeps! Who is Coach Covid LOL?

The Herb

Well the boys seem to be passing the eye candy test, as a few publications have us ranked, now if we can play, as good as we look!
We better because as quick as dem cruits jumped on board, the can be mutineers just as quick. We didn't get Da name Decomitt U for nuttin.

AeroCane

Saban pushing hard for 5 star CB J Marshall
It’s gonna be a tough fight to the finish!
Saban - I’ve got championships, coached in the NFL and get kids to the NFL!
Manny - play for your home town team!
Lol

JCane

The question may be just how badly the Palmetto 5 want to play together..

TJL

Hola

AeroCane

JCane
I’m hearing they like each other but the decisions are independent
Not sure how accurate that is as my gut says these guys have been ‘brothers’ for a long time and might feel more comfortable staying together and staying home
Let’s hope

TonyCane

AeroCane, you forgot the final pitch by Saban...

“Sign with us, and one day you’ll have the opportunity one day for me to step over you while you convulse with heat exhaustion as I head for my office.”

HerbieIbis

This will be like 2 heavy weights that are undefeated going at it for Marshall, especially the roll both programs have been on the last month in recruiting.
Saban has had a ton of his players drafted the last 10 years, especially in the first round but I can only think of a handful that have really had good careers.
Our players tend to be better pros than college players, while they are opposite.

AeroCane

Good free article on inside the U

“21 notable weight changes to know on Miami's updated 2020 roster”

UConn canceled its 2020-2021 football season Wednesday, becoming the first FBS program to suspend football because of the coronavirus pandemic, as other schools had taken the Huskies off their schedules and the governor was reluctant to allow UConn to travel to states with high infection rates.

I'll be surprised if they ever resume their FBS football program. UConn and several others are likely not to come back.

Saban squeezes every ounce out of his players. The perception at the NFL level (at least in the past) was that Saban's players were nearly maxed out in college, that they had limited upside, and had more wear on the tires than with other college programs.

AeroCane

Tony
All that is fine and dandy and means crap
Players want to play for the best and be the best and win
Saban has the track record and manny has shit!
Now, with that said, let’s turn this thing around! Win, win, have fun winning, and recruit, recruit and recruit!

roachcane77

Win, win, have fun winning, and recruit, recruit and recruit!

Yeah... what HE said!💯
That's the OLD Cane mantra... "We're gonna kick y'all's a$$es, and have fun doing it!"

Bring 'em on!🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

The Miami Hurricanes have announced the first three preseason practices beginning on Friday.

The Hurricanes will hold two-hour practices at the Greentree Practice Fields beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

All practices will be closed to the public and to the media.

AeroCane

My gut says we had as much to do with this as he did - I think great news!

Ja'Cory Hammett has flipped his commitment from Miami to West Virginia

The three-star linebacker out of Miami Northwestern announced the news over his Twitter account on Wednesday.

The Herb

Does UCONN actually play football?

HerbieIbis

Another ship available. Haven't been to enamored with LB or DB recruits anyway. With our system, it's not like we need a boat load of LB'S anyway.
Rumph better hope Saban ain't got the mojo or it will be the last grain of sand in the hour glass before we get another CB.

HerbieIbis

Tony,
Don't know about maxed out before they hit the pros, about 70% of his roster is 4 and 5 star players. Every year they have 4 or 5 players leave early for the pros.
Now they might be mentally fried playing for him, seeing that they play in so many high profile games. A majority of his linemen, both offense and defense, plus LB's usually redshirt, usually starting maybe 2 years.

Miami will host UAB as its lone non-conference game in the upcoming 2020 season according to a report by the Miami Herald.

A date has yet to be determined although the ACC is set to release its new schedule dates on Thursday morning.

Wait, wait, wait...UConn plays football?

Yes, the are losing money and losing games and are likely to move along and end football all together. Some others are likely to follow.

HerbieIbis

Jake Garcia transfering to Valdosta High to play football.
Says he's still solid to USC.
At least the coaches don't have to fly across country to try and flip him

A very formidable schedule!
At Louisville, FSU and at Clemson
Wow!
Thank goodness we have extra time before the UL game and a bye week before Clemson!
With manny, we can very easily be 1-3 after 4 OR he can surprise us and we can be 3-1! OR maybe Rousseau and roche and Phillips tear up T Lawrence and we end up 4-0 after 4! Let’s hope

AeroCane

And before anyone says, UL sucks and so does FSU, FYI, so did we and they have coaches who have good track records and we don’t!
I’m still in ‘prove it to me manny’ mode!

Leonard Taylor commits to Miami:

Old Skool


Seminoles expect home attendance to be limited to 20-25 percent at Doak Campbell Stadium. FSU will adhere to CDC social distancing guidelines, which will limit capacity to somewhere between 20-25%.

Hmmm I wonder if the tomahawk chop will help spread aerosolized COVID droplets around the stadium.

AeroCane

Great news Tony!

AeroCane

Now onto Jason Marshall!!

roachcane77

Bummer... Greg Rousseau is done. Opting out of college football.

KYcane

Aero

This hasn’t necessarily been a positive thing these last few years

AeroCane

KY
I know but
king vs williams
Lashee vs enos
Manny with 1 yr under his belt

AeroCane

So we get our schedule, we get a solid commit from a 5 star and then Rousseau opts out - what a day of highs and lows!
Very disappointed in Rousseau
Now the precedent is set / these younger kids who are stars are going to opt out of their ‘last year of eligibility’
It sucks
