Next month is going to be crucial. We can have either a traditional transition class, or we can load up on blue chippers from HS and the portal. Manny had a great class last year - we need to build successive classes.

Thank goodness we are not Oklahoma. What they are experiencing is what I feared was the worst case scenario if Manny left. They’re down to one wide receiver and their starting QB just entered the portal.

HerbieIbis

Yeah, it's a shame for Oakie. They had 3 or 4 five star WR's about a month ago and Now how the tide has changed. They opened up a can of worms with the T.P. they are going to have to do some major adjusting or this thing is going to get out of hand.
It ain't changing the landscape at the top, so don't expect parity any time soon
The rich keep getting richer and what they don't get from the high schoolers, they will poach the cream from the portal. I believe Jumbo has A&M at the top with I believe 6 five star recruits and maybe 7 if he gets Shemar. So now A&M is poised to join Bama, Georgia and OSU. So. Cal may be able to join them in a year or 2. Mario has his work cut out. Won't be that easy keeping these kids from running across the border to SEC land. Where they play football. This conference is poison for us. The only good thing about it is if u can convince the kids that it's an easier road to get to the final 4 playing in the ACC coastal and Navigating Clemson than playing in the SEC and having to navigate, Bama or Georgia and in some Years, Florida, Auburn, A&M or LSU. U truly have to recruit at the highest level to get thru that gauntlet.

Harry Miller

Thank goodness we are on a new direction with a new proven coach, a proven quarterback and a decent recruiting class, maybe even better than decent if
our new Coach pulls a few shockers in recruiting.

HerbieIbis

Bryan McClendon named Co- offensive coordinator and WR's coach.
I guess that means Briles ain't coming.
I guess CO means 2 minds are better than one?
Hope the other twin is a QB guru.

Terrance Sullivan

I want to add to our part of the bargain is eat Wings. Subs, Snacks, along with The Beer Drinking and Cheer in Our Contractual Obligations. Go Canes! Great Article Soupster!

Wait until this Saturday! Canes getting a lot better! []_[]

Daaaaammnn!

Ohio_Cane sighting

Good to see you

AeroCane

So far I’m very unimpressed with Mario’s timing and lack of urgency with a coaching staff! Just my opinion.
If he has this huge budget and knew who he wanted, go effing get them.

SAY WHAT?!?!?

Damn if I didn't forget about handing over the Canespace twitter account to you a few years ago. I had no idea and haven't opened or looked at that thing in YEARS! Good to know you are keeping it active and alive and well. Thanks for your contributions and fill us in on why you are so positively giddy about recruiting?

BTW...I lost the train wreck photo/avatar. Back to #36 and #86 together again at last. LOL

Miami losing, so far, to Syracuse, 31 - 15 in Basketball. Something has to give.
Cold and snow here in Michigan. Hope to get out of here by Feb. 1st to warm sunny Florida. This cold weather goes right through you, as you get older. Recovering from my fall last week. Walking slowly, scabbed up, etc. My mom always warned me about getting old. She was so RIGHT. Take care everyone.

Well that explains a lot…. I have no social media accounts.

Keep up the good work

HerbieIbis

Dam Ohio, ain't had nobody really to talk recruiting on a consistent basis but Aero. U got to quit holding out.
I feel the same way about Mario and his staff or lack there of, he still lacks both Coord., Db, LB, RB Sp. Teams TE.
Got a feeling we are getting at least Coleman, the rest we are at least being considered. We need Stewart but got another Month to wait on him.

HerbieIbis

Silvera to Da portal. Thanked Todd Stroud but didn't mention Simpson. Ain't really lived up to his potential but to me it's a mistake on his part. Probably thinks he's SEC material or I can see him going to JSU or some other HBC. This will become the fad in the coming years.
Don't know how many ships we got available but we are now down to 2 DT's in the 300 lb range, Taylor and Miller and don't know if Taylor is 300.

UGH!!! The portal... Changing the face of college football as we've known it... and IMHO NOT for the better.

I agree, Nesta hasn't quite lived up to his potential, but I was really looking forward to seeing him mature one more year and play for Mario.

Bummer.

orange 'n green in the vein

Major tale of two halves turnaround at half last night to keep the biggest secret in men's basketball this year still flying under the radar. If they find a way to win this next one against the only currently ranked team on the schedule, Larranaga will have lined himself up for a dark horse run at ACC coach of the year, while establishing a front to make a run at national honors for it as well.

The great thing about the current core of the roster is they've been kicked in the face so many times the last few seasons that when they do get down big and taste their own blood trickling from the strikes, they don't panic because they're used to it and just keep grinding, meanwhile whoever is up on them naturally is relaxing thinking everything is fine when in reality the stage is being set for a comeback run against them because UM's players are going to get every drop of juice squeezed out of them from the staff. Zone was causing a lot of problems against too passive an attack that was getting turned over in the paint instead of exposing the interior from the foul line down to the block, three point defense almost sank them but Syracuse's free throw line struggles eventually cost them the upset bid luckily, better overall team defense, especially of the three point line, improving the defensive rebound secured versus offensive rebounds surrendered ratio, and a reduction in turnovers will decide if they can move onto the bubble and into the championship postseason the rest of the way. Moore has been on a tear and is constantly winning his man to man assignments overall during the course of games, that's where the streak really got started and will continue at least until that falters and is no longer the case more often than not it looks like since Syracuse had no answer even with their size advantage to Miami going extremely small in their lineup.

VA Cane

Great article straight to the point full of facts...though I would amend to the list of what wins....the last one...execution...you know me....of FUNDAMENTALS.....

Execution of Fundamentals of the game...block tackle catch throw kick stance secure run hustle learn listen study attitude outlook THINK... is why we have been so bad......
we have not had coaches since 2003 that start with this concept...so many players at all schools come in with flawed or improper fundamentals...why does Saban win...sure he gets the best talent but knows from their first plays in sandlot so many of them have been taught wrong...then they get to HS and the family friends papers scouts ranking outfits etc make them football Gods....they know and do it all. I have never seen a guy thats perfect...none are. Saban breaks them down in all the categories I listed...its hard and time consuming...but 7 NCs tell it all...its what wins!!!!!

T Sully...drinking the eating...and dont forget those cigars...if we win more we can drink more, eat more happily....and toast victory with a nice stogie!!!!

Great article 86...look forward to progress!!!!

The UM "We-Are-Family" mantra is history. Unfortunately, this is the "modern" era. Nowadays, players simply come and go . . . as if a college football program is just another McDonald's.

The freakin' transfer portal, the phony "NIL" payments, and all the early exits to the NFL, are destroying college football - in my view. Some say that these reforms represent progress. I say that they are making college football progressively worse.

Ohio_Cane

IMO, 4-5* WR Kevin Coleman and 4* DE Cyrus Moss are both choosing Miami on Saturday.

Much more confidence on Coleman, simply based on the fact that his main recruiter at FSU is now at Oregon and he LOVES our new WR coach BMac. Coleman is Jeff Thomas, but a tad slower and less mental issues.

Moss is an absolute freak and he loves Mario.


Why the confidence in recruiting you ask, SOUP? Mario and the staff he's assembling. U can say what U want about how Mario will do with on field, in-game calls, etc, but what U can't question, is his recruiting. He's ELITE at it.

Also, the staff he's assembling... All legit/elite recruiters also. BMac is a top recruiter, Mirabal is a top recruiter, our new strength coach is maniac and kids LOVE him and want to work hard for him.

Keeping TRob? Great, he's an elite recruiter. Keeping coach Field? Great, he's an elite recruiter.

Ohio_Cane

Oh, and Manny Diaz made me stop posting and stopped following recruiting all together. He was a shit show everywhere and so was his staff (at least in recruiting)

AeroCane

Last week of January could be huge:

The big name to know is Miami Monsignor Pace five-star defensive lineman Shemar Stewart, who has a final three of Texas A&M, Georgia, and UM. The Aggies and Hurricanes are thought to be battling it out for the Under Armour All-American's commitment.

Two more South Florida natives expected to be in attendance are Fort Lauderdale Cardinal Gibbons defensive line duo of Ahmad Moten (6’3, 290) and Iowa State commit and Top247 EDGE R Mason Thomas. The two helped the Cheifs win their second straight state title last month.

Ohio_Cane

In addition, we've got pretty decent chances with more ELITE kids for February signing day. I haven't taken a NSD off of work for a few years now, but I might for this one.

Notables:

5* OL Joshua Conerly (#23 nationally overall, #3 OT)

5* DT Shemar Stewart (#7 nat'l overall, #2 DL)

4* OL Dave Iuli (#191 nat'l overall, #13 OL)

4* RB Trevonte Citizen (#113 nat'l overall, #9 RB)

Ohio_Cane

Great minds, Aero. Almost posted at the same time lol

AeroCane

Super!
I think we have a strong chance for the big guard luli
Love to get
Luli
Stewart
Moss
Coleman
Moten
And 1 or 2 more key guys (maybe 4 star CB Florence 6’1.5, 180 and Conerly but both might be tough pulls)

AeroCane

BTW
Welcome back Ohio and we had a mutual feeling for manny! LOL

Of course there are many ways to look at this scenario, what is yours?

Teams can beat one another on any given day?

MLALUMNI1970

Great BB game to the finish. Doesn’t get any more thrilling than a buzzer win by 1 point!! Awesome!

CGNC

Wow. Ohio Cane, U Mike and Alex D sightings.

Hi to all of you!

Ohio_Cane

Hey CGNC, hope you've been well!

ML ALUMNI1970

Hi to all of you, too. I watch the U on TV whenever anything is on. Will be back to Satellite Beach FL by Feb first. As I said before, I took a hard fall, and my love, Richard, did the same, but he fractured his back. My mom always said that it’s a bitch getting old; so do it all while you can.
Boy, was she right!! I miss the Canes of old, so very much. But, we will get their again! GO CANES!
Hi 86. Are you not running the show anymore??

Terrance Sullivan

Yessir Soupster Coach L said I ain't done yet lol! Go Canes!

Ohio_Cane

Mario said he spent the past 4 weeks assessing the program top to bottom. Policies, culture, personnel. He will meet with the players on the 15th and put out his own policies and goals

Ohio_Cane

Hard to listen to interview on Lebatard (because of Pipo) here:

Ohio_Cane

From a poster on CIS about Mario interview:

There are two parts that are for the diehards:

- him talking staff releasing next few days and coming week

- him confirming the internal support will rival any program including Bama

HerbieIbis

Citizen will be the RB to watch for us. I know Moss down to us & SC. Probably would be at Oregon had Mario stayed.
If da stars line up and we get Moss & Stewart to go with Kelly, what a haul at DE. Need some beef in the middle. Moten would fill that bill and hope that he is better than his brother, who was average at best.
Mario's hires are calculated and tied to some of these cruits.
Would love to see him yank Briles from Arky but have doubts he's looking that way.
The days as we have known them the last 18 or so years or the curse of McGahee are coming to an end. Time to get some dam retribution. As much as the sports world has been talking about us lately, I think they know hell is coming.
That effing fence that we used to talk about but has been stampeded over by dem poachers is going to finally be put back up and in concrete this time.
Yeah, Mario still has to get everything aligned and it might take a year or 2 but hells coming.

Hey! DTC here too! Feels absolutely awesome to see the positivity around here! Hey, it’s hard to win NC’s (unless you’re Bama). Even mighty Clemson found the lowly ACC too much to conquer without an all-world QB. But the CANES finally have a legit leader. Once the 5’s (stars) take us seriously and start coming, we’ll see 4’s following and 3’s begging. I’m as demanding as anyone but do understand “baby steps”. After the last 15 years, I’ll be beyond happy to be playing meaningful games in Nov and a real bowl game! We’ve been in 5-7 to 7-5 purgatory for what feels like eternity

nemo2020

Yes Big D, STARS MATTER.

Ohio_Cane

More crystal balls for Moss and Coleman last night and today. This time from West coast insiders.

Looking more and more promising that we get both tomorrow!

Ohio_Cane

Looking likely that Kevin Smith (currently RB coach at Ole Miss with Lane) will be our next RB coach

Ohio_Cane

From CIS: Gabby Urrutia (from 247) just stated that Frank Ladson is cleaning out his apartment at Clemson and still believes he enrolls at Miami. Also stated he’s fully healthy from a groin injury

Harry Miller

Ohio, so great to have you back. looking forward to a great next season and bogging will be great again.

Ohio_Cane

This new offer Jack Pyburn is interesting. Check this highlight lol
