Harry and Toledo, thanks! Glad to see all of U!

Ohio_Cane

DL coach Joe Salave'a confirmed by Miami! Great coach and recruiter.

Also, gimme all the Polynesians on the line []_[]

Navaughn gone. I liked him coming in, but have to agree with 86…he never worked hard. New regime cleaning house.

Where’d you see that? I can’t find it anywhere. Not that it matters if he stays or goes but I’m curious

AeroCane

Per inside the U

“Mario Cristobal will bring his trusted defensive line coach Joe Salave'a from Oregon to Miami.

Salave’a coached with Cristobal at Oregon since 2017. When Cristobal was named head coach, Salave’a stayed with the program and added co-defensive coordinator and run-game coordinator to his title.”

If Mario pulls Coleman and Moss tomorrow like we think, he will have gotten 4 Top 100 kids that would NOT have come to Miami with manny and the previous staff. It’s also just the 2nd time it would be done (4 top 100’s in one cycle) in a decade. And Mario will have done it in 3 weeks. Without a DC or OC LOL

Examples:

- 2021: Three (DT Leonard Taylor, DB James Williams, and QB Jake Garcia)

- 2020: Two (DB Avantae Williams and DE Chantz Williams)

- 2019: One (WR Jeremiah Payton)

- 2018: Six (RB Lorenzo Lingard, TE Brevin Jordan, DT Nesta Jade Silvera, WR Mark Pope, QB Jarren Williams, and CB Al Blades Jr.)

- 2017: Three (WR Jeff Thomas, OL Navaughn Donaldson, and DL D.J. Johnson)

- 2016: One (WR Sam Bruce)

- 2015: One (RB Mark Walton)

Texas A&M is paying up to $30,000,000 for its 2022 recruiting class using the NIL.

orange 'n green in the vein

When I was in college the current coach was working his grad assistant role for Butch Davis, and one evening on the first floor of Mahoney dormitory someone stopped him to chat and said to Cristobal while he was running some GA errand, probably counting curfew numbers I'd guess, he'd have Butch's job eventually they thought, Mario I remember chuckled and humbly said the right thing back, that in a few decades maybe he'd be ready for a football coaching job of this magnitude and the current coach was much better suited for what the program needed now than he'd be.

Turns out my clock on the wall just went off and it's now literally decades later, and look who's got the job, maybe Butch will loan him a Super Bowl ring too for home visits to flash at the prospects....

The Word From The Herb

Well, Jumbo has always been a good recruiter and this deal just made him lethal.
Still got to play the games but it makes it a whole lot easier when you got a Brinks truck sitting in your parking lot handing out wads of cash to the recruits u want.
NCAA will eventually have to come up with solutions to NIL and the portal before these to things get way out of hand. U already have the same 3 or 4 teams hauling in a vast majority of the 5 star players and if they need them will Cherry pick the portal for the best available.

I was in Mahoney Hall, in 1966, as a freshman. NO AC the whole year. Not till I moved next door to 735 East. All that money and no AC.
Looking forward to the Duke BB game tonight. On ESPN I think!!

JCane

SEC has always been the big spender, but now there are ways for the big money schools to do it without breaking the rules. Only a few schools outside of the SEC are trying to keep up, like OSU and Clemson,or catch up, now USC and UM. Like you said, Herb, at some point there will have to be more NIL rules or this wild west will only get wilder with very few teams ever having a chance over the top few, without the top few ever changing.

AeroCane

There needs to be caps!!
No different than nfl or nba

Ohio_Cane

Just fyi, Coleman and Moss are announcing in the 4th.quarter of the AA bowl that begins at 1:00 today

Fat and Lazy is no way to go through life.

- 2019: One (WR Jeremiah Payton)

- 2016: One (WR Sam Bruce)

Such HUGE disappointments. Payton was my Rookie LOF the year he came in as a Freshman. Jinxed him?

86Cane

Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Jeremiah Payton announced his entry into the transfer portal on Friday. Payton was a star in practice for Miami who developed beyond that. A 2019 signee, Payton was the 54th ranked player nationally, 10th best WR and nine in Florida. Payton announced his departure from Miami in August.

The initial announcement was that Payton was taking a leave of absence for personal reasons. Payton played in 11 games in his two seasons with the Miami Hurricanes recording six receptions for 58 yards and one carry for seven. Payton initially signed with Miami under former WRs coach Ron Dugans.

Dugans was replaced by Taylor Stubblefield for the 2019 season. Stubblefield left Miami after one season for Penn State. Rob Likens replaced him for the 2020 season when Manny Diaz revamped the offensive coaching staff. Payton chose Miami over several other high-profile schools including Alabama, Clemson, Florida and Georgia.

When Payton initially left in August, the potential for him to return was left open. Now Payton will be seeking to transfer to another program. Payton was the top signee for Miami in 2019. The Hurricanes top defensive signee in the Class of 2019, cornerback Christian Williams also transferred and is now at South Florida.

I wonder who it was that said this was a bad idea and the beginning of the end of college football as know it. Who was that guy?

86Cane

Christian Williams bust, I mean Bulls, Bio page:

https://gousfbulls.com/sports/football/roster/christian-williams/12911

Harry Miller

Moss to theU

Ohio_Cane

Yessir!! That’s 1! DE Cyrus Moss!

Ohio_Cane

Coleman up shortly to announce. 99% sure it’s Miami

JCane

DL looking good. Hopefully S Stewart will bypass College Station.

roachcane77

Coleman to Jackson State.

Neon Deion strikes again.😡

JCane

Wow. Another ditch to JSU. Wonder how much money is involved...

Ohio_Cane

LMAO @ Deion at Jackson State

86Cane

JSU = $$$$$$$$$

toledocane

I look at Coleman going to Jackson State as FSU losing their top 2 commits to Deion. Damn! 😂

I would’ve liked him, but we’re ok at WR. Moss was a bigger pickup for our needs.

toledocane

DL looking good. Hopefully S Stewart will bypass College Station.

Posted by: JCane | January 08, 2022 at 03:56 PM

Mario is getting his last OV the weekend before the 2/2 NSD. Jimbo’s in the lead with his $$$, but I’m hopeful he stays home. We’ll see.

JCane

I still expect Frank Ladson Jr. is likely to take a WR slot out of the portal, too.

HerbieIbis

Well, all the guru's who have the inside info, whiffed on Coleman, just like I did.
First let me say, I can see a kid going to a JSU, if u could be one and done and it's straight to the draft but, But u tell me what good it will do a kid like Coleman going against the talent he will face playing at that level? Money aside, he could of made Money here. The cuteness will wear off and then where will he be. Hopefully he hasn't signed yet and this joke of a pick will be just that, A Joke!
Good that we got Moss, now got to get the goons out collecting money to lure Stewart.

One year to collect big $$$ at JSU and then transfer portal to collect another big payday at another school. This is going to be ridiculous.

And once kids figure out where to get the most $$$ (see TAMU) they will just transfer straight up for the $$$.

Why worry about playing against good competition with good talent when by the time you are done in college you have a couple of million. The NFL will be rendered useless and half the kids who cash out in college will not even care about the Not For Long league.

If I was a 21 year old college kid with $3 million after college by transferring 3 times to big schools would I really want to get up at 5 AM to work out every day and work hard to make the NFL to get concussed, blow out a knee or worse?

Hell to the NO!

I'd take my $3,000,000 buy 4 houses @$500,000 each (or less) as real estate investments with $2 million put the other $1 million in diversified investment accounts and let it grow into $10,000,000 or more over 50 years.

Then retire like a king and never work a day in your life unless you want to.

I suspect Shemar is going to Jackson State as well.

Where we stand as of 1/8/22:

BLUE CHIP PLAYERS
2022: 47 (out of 80 players)
2021: 50 (out of 91 players)
2020: 40 (out of 79 players)
2019: 36 (out of 77 players)
2018: 38 (out of 80 players)
2017: 29 (out of 77 players)
2016: 27 (out of 76 players)
2015: 28 (out of 83 players)
2014: 23 (out of 72 players)
2013: 23 (out of 74 players)

CURRENT ROSTER DEPTH:

Quarterbacks 4
Wide Receiver 9
Running Back 5
Tight End 6
Offensive Line 14
Defensive Tackle5
Defensive End 6
Linebacker 10
Defensive Backs 18
Special Teams 3

The current signing class (while quite small) features 9 four star players out of the 11 commitments. That is the most lopsided class in favor of blue chips since 2005, which featured 12 out of 16 players as blue chippers.

HerbieIbis

Somehow, we got to get to get in the upper 50's.
Bama, OSU and Georgia are all in the the mid to upper sixties.

Ohio_Cane

NO ONE had Coleman to JSU. ZERO crystal balls on 247, never mentioned once anywhere.

Deion doing that $bag work in the shadows

AeroCane

Ohio
Yep but moss was way more important
We are loaded at WR and next year there are plenty of top 100 WR for us to get our fair share.
Plus I think IF Mario wants Larsen as a transfer, he can get him

HerbieIbis

I guess HBC's can contact in the no contact period. Never any mention of JSU, and the same with Hunter.

HerbieIbis

This crap will only get worse (NIL) before it gets better.

Alphonso Jackson

Lol, JSU’s bag is no way bigger than the schools he was expected to pick

Ohio_Cane

Miami sitting at #36 in 247 composite rankings. With 10 commits they have the fewest of anyone in top 50 with an average ranking of 92.65 that ranks 5th behind aTm, Bama, UGA, and Ohio State. He’s not done either.

Terrance M Sullivan

Miami Hurricanes Beat Number 2 Duke 76-74. 9 Straight Wins 13-4 and 5-0 in the ACC. Boom Baby! Now i will let yall get back to groveling over Recruiting. Yawn

orange 'n green in the vein

We'll see how they respond with the target firmly painted on their backs the rest of the way now, secrets out and no more sneaking up on other teams unsuspecting.

Only 499 wins to go to catch Kryzewski.

MLALUMNI1970

Such an awesome B B win for Miami. To beat Duke up at Duke. How spectacular.
Good night Canespacers

Ohio_Cane

GREAT game to watch and glad to see coach K’s last game vs Miami at Cameron be an L 🙌

Welcome aboard!
It's comforting to know that even Coach L's uncle finally recognizes that a primary attribute of leadership is knowing when it's time to step aside so others can lead.
