Recruiting Recap: Miami Announces 16 Signees

412 comments

Yesterday Miami announced the signing of 14 (16 overall) prospects, eight of whom were previously verbally committed to other programs. Head coach Al Golden and staff did a tremendous job in the short period of time they’ve been on campus, not only signing the class they did, but beginning the process of repairing the relationships with South Florida high school coaches, restoring hope and optimism in the program, and setting the table for a successful 2012 class.

Here’s how the 2011 class stacks up (all ranking according to Rivals):

Kevin Grooms 5’10, 165 3* ATH

Rashawn Scott 6’2, 198 3* WR

Phillip Dorsett 5’10, 170 3* WR

Taylor Gadbois 6’8, 295 3* OL

Anthony Chickillo 6’3, 226 4* DE

Jalen Grimble 6’4, 255 4* DE

Olsen Pierre 6’6, 280 3* DE

Ricardo Williams 6’5, 210 3* DE

Eddie Johnson 6’2, 218 3* LB

Antonio Kinard 6’4, 215 3* LB

Gionni Paul 6’0, 227 3* LB

Denzel Perryman 5’11, 217 3* LB

Dallas Crawford 5’10, 185 3* DB

Thomas Finnie 5’10, 170 3* DB

Dalton Botts 6’3, 200 3* P

Matt Goudis 6’0, 165 2* K

The class breaks down with (1) athlete, (2) wide receiver, (1) offensive lineman, (4) defensive ends, (4) linebackers, (2) defensive backs, (1) punter, and (1) kicker. The overall class is ranked 36th, with a chance to move up if UM can fill the void in this class with a quarterback, namely 4* signal caller Jacoby Brissett (6’4, 220), who is set to announce his college destination Friday at halftime of his varsity basketball game. He’s choosing between the Gators and ‘Canes.

There are also rumors of ex-Rutgers QB Tom Savage being interested in transferring to Miami, but according to NCAA rules, he would have to sit out a year before becoming eligible.

The Hurricanes ended up with several signees in their class who either weren’t recruited by former coach Randy Shannon or weren’t seriously recruited, including local players Kevin Grooms (South Broward), Thomas Finnie (Miami Central) and Ricardo Williams (Homestead).

“It’s a heavy defensive class,” Golden said. “If anything, that should give you an indication of my evaluation of our offense relative to our defense right now,” he stated in his press conference last night.

“What this group is going to do (is) be a blue-collar unit,” Golden said.  “It’s going to be a group that will challenge for jobs in certain areas, raise the intensity and the performance and execution of the guys that were in place.”

As with every National Signing Day, there were a couple of surprises and disappointments. The surprises were the signing of DE Jalen Grimble and LB Eddie Johnson. Both are big prospects that could contribute to the depth on defense and play special teams right away. The disappointments were the commitments of WR Devin Lucien (UCLA), WR Patrick Onwuasor (Arizona), DE BJ Dubose (Louisville), DT Lonnie Gosha (Arkansas), ATH Dominique Terrell (UVA) to other schools, and the uncertainty of being able bring in a quarterback (not securing a commitment from one).

“It’s not so much the ones you don’t get; it’s making sure you get the right ones. I really believe that. You don’t want to be sitting there on Aug. 8 saying, ‘Hey, does anybody know why we recruited this kid? Was it because he was offered by eight other schools? Does anyone know where he fits in our system?’ All the staff here took their time and evaluated.”

“To be honest with you, we probably had spots for a couple of more kids, but we just didn’t want to get into the herd effect and we didn’t want to drop down,” Golden added. “We didn’t want to lower our expectations, so we stayed at a high level and wanted to battle it out at that level.”

The focus for recruiting has already shifted to 2012. Tonight, Golden is hosting area high school coaches, and part of the meeting will consist of taking in tonight’s hoops game against Georgia Tech. Coaches will be bringing film and transcripts of athletes they believe the Hurricanes could recruit.

The countdown to NSD 2012 has already begun.

    nashville, golden needs to play small ball and don’t know it, forget about spending all that money bringing in these west coast recruits, i tried to tell em that in the 1st place, some will say it’s an investment into the future, man, please, leave them kool & the gang wide receivers where they be. I’m rooting for telemaque, but i’m just not impressed with his football instincts back their, they had to know v-tech was going for the sticks, why he didn’t jump that route is beyond me, no way i’m giving up a 3rd and 20, whoever i’m guarding can hang it up.

    Don’t waste your time, and one reason coach hurtt is able to recruit against UM is simple, he knows how easier it is to get into louisville than UM, plus, they can sell more playing time and getting out of UM, ialways wanted coach hurt to do well, but that guy just can’t coach d-linemen.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Kool n the Gang…..ROFL…..

    Classic and probably true. Oh well. It only happened because that’s all that was left and likely to be admitted.

    Not trying to jinx our hopes with JB, but assuming he heads to turdville (which I reading some chatter is a possibility) wouldnt that put us in a really strong position to land a top rated pro-style qb for 2012?

    We pick up Savage as an insurance policy and save the schollie for 2012, which I hear is jammed packed with top talent accross the board!

    If the kid doesnt want to be here and he signs with us cause of mommy, can we really expect him to actually stay??

  7. avatar
    SailorCane says:

    Bg; I agree with you in re: Driskel, If I were him I would be like wtf, all this effort on this Jacoby dude, hey what about me!!

  8. I vote don’t bring in Savage (except if he really wants to be here). That way we will get our pick of the litter of 2012 QBs. Honestly, its not like Brissett is going to come in and be the starter. Heck, I think we ALREADY have our QB for the next 3 years in Morris.

  9. Driskel shouldn’t be too upset. He may be the most undisciplined QB I’ve ever seen rated 4* or above. Kid personifies raw talent.

  10. avatar
    SailorCane says:

    CK, I agree with you, but Savage could be a very good 2nd stringer to Morris when J12 checks out. I dont think having him here will chase away any top recruits due to the fact that after year on the bench he has just 1 year of college ball left.

    Spencer is out after 2011 plus he is just laces out, J12 out 2011, so Savage would be solid back-up

  11. avatar
    SailorCane says:

    My only time watching driskel was UA game and to me it seemed that every time the pocket tightened up he was outta there like a roach when the lights come on!

  12. Sailor, I watched his highlight film and it was much of the same. And I think Savage will have two years to play, if I’m not mistaken he was never redshirt.

  13. avatar
    Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer says:

    CK, we need QBs just to run practice the right way. They don’t ever need to see the field to be a key role on the team. Golden will find some kids. Savage would be good, very good.

    Sailor, you’re about Brissett. If he doesn’t want to come he’ll learn that lesson but oh well. He won’t be the first.

  14. avatar
    SailorCane says:

    I think if we ended the season on a better note, played in ACC Championship, win the bowl, we land these top recruits, just not this year!

    As everyone has said winning will cure all these ills!

    Just tired of the disrespect, especially that hat toss crap!

    I hope if JB does the hat thing, that his mother tells him not to toss UM’s hat aside!

    SailorCane says:

    Capt’n

    I am just not feeling the kid has his heart for The U! And all of us know when your heart aint in it, everything suffers.

    We do need qb’s but we dont need ones whom are constantly second guessing their decisions!

    I can tell you this, if I had my youth back and was offered a D1 schollie to UM, hands down, I am there, sign me up, turn my cell phone off, recruitung is over 4 me!

  16. bg

    Weatherford reminds me of Forcier which is why I wanted him so much. He may have a past, but so does Grooms if I’m not mistaken.

  17. avatar
    Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer says:

    Sailor, I forgot to type, I think you’re RIGHT about Brissett. But if the kid likes that dumb-ass big state school vibe it’s on him. Some kids are impressionable like that.

    This class isn’t essential to anything we’re doing this year, except maybe Finnie and possibly Grooms, so I’m cool with it. Just get a few QBs in Forcier and Savage would be perfect but I don’t see it, and we’re ready to roll up the sleeves and get bizzee.

  18. avatar
    SailorCane says:

    Capt’n yep, I am right there with you!

    And I agree with Este, I think the 2010 class is really gonna show up in next year or 2.

  19. “He has decided,” Dwyer coach Jack Daniels confirmed on Thursday night. “He just has to talk it over with his Mom tonight.”

    “I talked to [Brissett's Mom] a couple of hours ago,” Daniels noted. “She’s pretty adamant about sticking to her guns, but I think it will work out for them both

    ^^^Doesn’t sound like us

  20. Is there a list of top 2012 prospects out yet? I’d like to check out some potential QBs.

  21. Are there any in S.Florida?

    Dominique Terrell picks Virginia over Miami

    The nation’s top uncommitted high school senior Dominique Terrell spurns the Hurricanes.
    BY DAVID FAWCETT

    SPECIAL TO THE MIAM HERALD

    The visit was his final one and the trip last weekend to the University of Miami made an impression on Dominique Terrell, enough that it appeared the Hurricanes were still in the running for one of the nation’s top uncommitted high school senior football players going into the start of national signing day.
    But on Monday, the Osbourn High School senior decided the University of Virginia was the place for him. He called Cavaliers head coach Mike London with his decision that day, while the same day, Terrell’s head football coach, Steve Schultze, called Miami and Terrell’s other choice, West Virginia, to tell them the news that Terrell was committing to Virginia.
    Terrell kept the decision under wraps from the general public until Wednesday when he announced it at the Old Towne Sports Pub in Manassas.
    The 5-10, 165-pound Terrell said he turned down the Hurricanes primarily because of distance. He wanted to have his parents see him play without having to go far. The University of Virginia is less than two hours away from Terrell’s home in Manassas.
    “I thought I owed that to [my parents],” said Terrell.
    Terrell’s father Zach, who favored the University of Virginia all along and did not know his son’s final choice until just before Wednesday’s announcement, said it was a good thing that Terrell didn’t visit Miami earlier than he did.
    “He loved Miami, but he did not have enough time to let it set in and that was good he didn’t. That’s good for the family,” Zach Terrell said.
    While Terrell had the Hurricanes high on his list to begin with, the hiring of Al Golden as head coach last month only piqued the interest of the Terrell family even more. The family was familiar with Golden when he served as an assistant coach at Virginia and was recruiting Terrell’s older brother Zach out of Manassas Park.
    Miami assistant coach Paul Williams, who coached for Golden at Temple, made a home visit Jan. 5.
    Terrell liked all three of his finalists because he had made it clear in the recruiting process that he wanted to play offense in college.
    But West Virginia, which had been Terrell’s frontrunner initially, fell out of favor after Terrell’s chief recruiter for the Mountaineers, Chris Beatty, was fired in late December.
    This past season, Terrell was the Cedar Run District and Northwest Region Offensive Player of the Year and a first-team all-state selection as a utility player.
    The 5-foot-10, 165-pound quarterback ran for 2,077 yards and 30 touchdowns) and threw for 1,430 yards and 15 touchdowns in helping Osbourn go 12-1 and reach the Division 5 state semifinals.
    He is ranked the nation’s No. 122 prospect by ESPNU and the No. 19 athlete by ESPN.com
    He was recruited by the Hurricanes as a slot receiver.

    Sailor, this is ALL ON THE EDITORS. I worked at a major newspaper. I know how this shyt goes down and why. The anti-U bias is coming from the editors. Manny gets caught in the crossfire.

    This is all on the editors.

    I know most people love it, but to me recruiting is the worst.

    It is essentially supposed to be the kids day in the sun for all of the hard work they put into make it to the next level.

    It has turned into a bunch of adults exploiting this (boom in recruiting sites, 10 hours of ESPNU coverage) and the kids achieving super star status before they even take a snap at the college they choose. From the hype of recruiting all they can do in underachieve most of the time. And “fans” hating a kid they don’t even know b/c they put on the hat of the other school.

    And the worst part is it know extends well past the magical NSD. Why not have an early signing day to quell some of the circus, side show elements that have emerged in this.

    Nahh, they consciously went out of their limp-dyk fagg-azz way to find a story and spin it in any way that would the U look bad.

    In time, I will have the final word and laugh with these editors. Blood sworn.

    Cav that how it is in Miami. I’ve never seen a city outside of New York, Philly that makes it so hard on it’s own sports team. The Phins get a free pass, but it just seems like the local media in Miami has to make it tough for the Canes at every turn

  32. Cav.

    I don’t see anything wrong that article? They didn’t diss us, just explained the rationale behind the kids decision. In fact, they were saying why we made it tuff on him. I don’t find it disrespectful.

  33. Anyone else note what Golden said in his presser about the idea of having an early signing day option for kids so coaches wouldn’t have to waste time continuing to recruit kids who were solid. I think this is a very good idea. Kids would be able to get out of the LOI if there is a coaching change.

  34. cav, yep, they did get desparate chasing those wide-outs from out west, but my concern for goldie is, he seems to want to try and win recruitign battles in fsu and gaytor territory, if he’s a studying man of UM history, here’s to hoping he picks up on cherry pciking certain spots in Florida as well. Alot of players don’t belong at UM, take for instance deion sanders, as talented as he was, back than, he would not have fit in with alot of the Miami guys back than. If you ever been to Ft. Myers, it’s only about an 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours north west of Miami, but as soon as you get there, you notice the difference right away.

    sanders was born to be an fsu player, take derrick brooks, from a mental standpoint, hell of a player, just born to be a seminole, we didn’t need him in Miami, but the way people recruit now, they’d want him along with all these other linebackers we had, we needed a guy like ray lewis, all UM, went to fsu on his visit, and alot of UM guys didn’t really understand they were UM guys until they went on their fsu visits, like ray lewis said, they got him up their and thought they were pumping him up by tellign him he could sit behind an all american in derrick brooks and learn and when he leaves that spot will be his, ray looked at whoever it was at the time and said, sit behind em, “how you know i’m not better than him right now” ths, ray lewis to UM, and when he got here, he understood real quick he was in the midst of guys who set out to be better than the guy that came before them.

    WHen a guy like warren sapp says he’s the best d-tackle out of UM ever, as much as i luv JEROME BROWN, you can’t argue against sapp that he wasn’t when you compare resume’s, but as far as being respected as a person and as great as you were respected as a player, JEROME BROWN can never be beat in that department regardless of how good your stats were or are, the effect he had on the other players around him, separated JEROME BROWN from sapp in my book, you hear the guys from the the old teams say it all the time, when you think of what a UM player should be or is, who embodies that, most of them to a man will say, JEROME SAPP.

    Meanwhile warren sapp’s resume as a player, can’t be touched, and it was always funny to me to hear people talking about sapp had a down year because he only had around 7 or 8 sacks, lol, for people to actually expect a guy from the defensive tackle spot to have more than 5 sacks a year is ridiculous, but to expect him to have more than 10 every year and some thought he would lead the league from the d-tackle position just goes to show how much he balled!

    moneycane says:

    Yeah who cares about basketball NSD. On a whole I think that recruiting in basketball is much more repulsive than football. AAU coaches around the country are caking up.

    This is my poitn to, the crap is irritating these days, all these people saying stars don’t matter but than when they hear their teams recruiting class is ranked # 30 something, they let their emotions feel dissappointed, but if they hear their team has the #1 ranked recruiting class, they let their emotions make them feel happy. To me, whatever players we get at UM, they know the standard, play up to it, or transfer. Who cares about these recruiting sites, they don’t know who fits best where, as if steward going to clemson is going to hurt fsu, lol.

Since when do you need to play on the aau circuit to become a player, it’s garbage and greed on top of it all. It all goes back to these shoe companies though, Lord Willing and i Live long enuff, if can help it, none of my kids will be affiliated with aau, they might end up on an aau team, but that all year round crap, forget about it.

It shouldn’t take that long for people to figure out which school to go to, it’s like me, whenever i find myself even thinking about, ok, what am i going to where today, and i’m not the dressing up type, but whenever that litle thought even crosses into my mind, i put it in check real quick and remember when their was no options back in the day and than i just grab something and i’m out the door.

    Forget all these schools trying to court you all day long, and enuff with this goldie got kids to flip, those kids wanted to be here in the 1st place with the exception of maybe grimble, other than that, they would’ve all stayed where with whom they were committed too. Now had he flipped teddy b, marcus jackson, eli rogers, albert louis, etc. etc.

    It seems like you have the black mark of death if you ain’t on some AAU squad. It’s even like that for girls b-ball too. It’s like you have to break bread to even be considered for a scholly, and the AAU coach gets the money from you and then pimps you out to the schools and gets money from them too. I bet it’s some AAU coaches pulling down 100k a year easily

    Plus, the headlines say it all…..SPURNS UM…

    Come on bro. It’s all in the packaging. But the deeper point is, WHO THE FUK CARES ABOUT SOME KID FROM VA??? HE’S SUPPOSED TO GO TO UVA.

    Tell Manny now that I see this shyt, I know what he’s dealing with and it ain’t him. It’s the sports-editor and the copy editor.

    I’m not so sure about Sapp over Jerome. I can’t think of anyone who destroyed 2 or 3 players at once the way Jerome did. Definitely not Sapp, although he may have been the most athletically gifted DT ever. I might give him that.

  58. I checked out the top 2012 prospects from S.FL and none of the QBs looked overly impressive in their Junior highlihgts. Looks like we will have to go out of state.

    I checked out the top 2012 prospects from S.FL and none of the QBs looked overly impressive in their Junior highlihgts. Looks like we will have to go out of state.

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

    Our best QB’s have been from out of state so I have NO ISSUE with that.

  60. Here’s something for the naysayers and the star gazers, tcu is the best team in the state of texas. texas, they are the fsu of that state, best recruiting classes time and time again, tcu, they are the UM of that state, a bunch of unhearalded ballers, and all they do is win, and they are ranked #2 in the nation, if i was jacoby brissett, i’d go to tcu. And texas “wake me up in the” a&m, they are the gaytors of that state.

    tcu, not worried about star rankings, just guys who fit their system, that patterson guy, talk about somebody that has studied UM history and has implemented it their with the horn frogs. That’s what he’s done their, convincing guys to change positions on a regular basis, has that eye for talent. Just like when alonzo highsmith came here as adefensive player and was convinced to be a fullback, patteson has a good resume on doing that down their.

    What was tcu’s class rnaked this year, last year and the years before that, people are trying to act like they don’t give a damyum you know why, because it makes these recruitng services look stupid.

  61. cav, don’t worry about the Miami Herald, might as well call it the the new york undercoaver Herald, alot of those guys just came dow here for the weather, but despise everything Miami and have no real interest in the team, they are new yorkers, who don’t really care about football like that. Another prime example of why alot of players from back in the day from Carol City never went to UM, because they kind if had that omar mentality, like omar said, he’s not a real UM football fan, but he at least covered them on a regular and did his job better.

    manny does a good job, and since UM is not his primary, i mean seriously, what good those susan do for UM football covering it, is their not one real true Miami journalist out their besides manny.

    cav, i’m going with JEROME BROWN every time over sapp when it comes down to it, the funny thing is, JEROME and SAPP lost in the natona championship game the same way, garbage qb play. In fact, osu, ken dorsey, garbage qb play, as long as we have a signal caller who doesn’t get punked, we always win the national title, even if they get punked, just don’t turn the ball over, with frank costa, he may not have turned the ball over, but he damyum show has got to have the UM offensive qb record for 3 & outs!

    Great point, because that’s definitely not saying much and he’s about the only qb costa may have beat out in a qb competition, but than again, at least kirby could run.

    JB – see ya. It’s humming everywhere that he doesn’t want down here. If he’s not feeling us, then fine, go to wherever.

    Let’s just give him this to chew on:

    Current QBs on turd roster:

    Brantley
    Reed
    Murphy
    Burton?
    Driskel
    McGriff

    Better for him to go freeze his ass off up in Bucky-land because he’s going for scout team MVP if he goes to turdland.

    Now all these rumors, including the Parcells one, could be BS, but it sure seems like there’s a lot of smoke here if there’s no fire.

    1. Matt Jones, RB, 6-3, 225, Seffner Armwood

    No surprise here at all, I’ve been hyping this kid since last year when he was a Soph. I won’t lie to ya on here

    16. Nelson Agholor, WR, 6-0, 175, Tampa Berkley Prep

    This kid is a heavy Croc lean – for now at least. I covered this kid this past year, talked to him a lot

    95. Gray Crow, QB, 6-3, 220, Clearwater Countryside:

    Fat assed Weis up at Notre Dame talked to him when he was a Soph – then when Brian Kelly got there, they gave him the cold shoulder b/c guarantee he saw how overrated this kid is. The parents of the kid moved him to go play up in Ocala the year before this one, b/c they were afraid he wasn’t going to be able to start at Countryside due to another kid there that was going to win the QB job – so right there, doesn’t that tell you that they’re afraid of competition? After that QB kid graduated, the Crow family moved back to Countryside so Gray could be the starting QB basically by default, due to the QB depth chart there. When he came back, he lost his #1 WR b/c the kid transferred to state champion Jefferson High in Tampa – karma is a bitch, huh. The kid is a assclown and a dick – and I have tape that I shot of his games to prove it

    If you think I’m being mean by saying that, when you see the kid play and the type of crap he pulls – you’ll think the exact same thing

    Actually those 2 are just as good. I guess you don’t remember the hauls USC was pulling in when Pete was there, they were the top 2 recruiters. What went “wrong” if you can say that is that Brennan Carroll was working NO WHERE and had NO CONTACT with recruits this past year, and Jethro was at Temple and he didn’t have contact with the calibur of athlete he can now recruit at Miami. These guys LITERALLY started over from SCRATCH along with Barrow then you have and Stoutland bolt and Hill recruiting against us, HE IS VERY INVOVLED trying to recruit Jacoby, and then you add our lousy record this year. These guys did as bang up a job as they could. Just wait until 2012 class. You guys will eat your words. Trust me, I’ve followed recruiting for a long time, these guys are the goods. We have a staff that can recruit against ANYONE in the country and win.

  89. Raize,

    Everything is rumor at this point but that is what is starting to float around.

  90. Raize.

    This explains pretty straight forward

    http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/highschoolbuzz/2011/02/03/predicting-where-jacoby-brissett-will-sign-florida-miami-washington-or-wisconsin/

    I’ll just say, not optimisitc and HOPING it works out for us. He’s not taking anymore calls from Coaches so there is no way to get in his head. Remember Preston Parker was all Miami until it was time to sign and at that very moment he picked FSU so you never know what they will do. But to me at this stage it doesn’t look good. His HS coach is a Gator Booster as well so there is a lot working against us.

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Don’t know, raize. But I’ve heard the dinner JB had with Parcells and Weis has kind of swayed him. That’s what several sources are saying, anyway. I think he knows where he’s going though. Read the link above.

    Personally, I think it’s a done deal and he’s a gata. But we’ll see.

  92. Also remember QBs are the HARDEST to recruit. There are NEVER a lot of them so you have to get on them EARLY. Don’t be surprised that one of the FIRST things we do in 2012 is identify and land a commitment from a QB or 2 not matter what happens with Brissett.

  93. avatar
    CanesCanesCanes says:

    bg – it will be a shocker now if the picks the Canes. A BIG shocker. Kid is good as gone.

    Been having this feeling for days now, as you know, and Jack Daniels runs a feeder program to the turds based on his history.

    We’re the underdogs for this kid now.

  94. Brissett will be deciding tonight among Miami, Florida, and Wisconsin.

    Miami made a strong late push to land Brissett in the month of January. Brissett made an official visit to Miami last weekend and he admits the Hurricanes are the favorite school of his mother, Lisa Brown.

    “I think it looks good there,” Brissett said of Miami’s depth chart. “They have a senior quarterback and a sophomore quarterback and it is pretty much open.”

    Florida has recruited Brissett strong ever since the hiring of new coach Will Muschamp. Brissett’s high school coach Jack Daniels played at Florida and he has three former Dwyer teammates in DB Matt Elam, TE Gerald Christian, and WR Robert Clark who are currently heading into their second years at UF.

    “They almost won their bowl game and they need some help at the quarterback position,” Brissett said of Florida. “You could see last year they were missing that consistent quarterback and they still had a good season and they have an opportunity to play early there.”

    Wisconsin has been the most consistent school in the recruiting process of Brissett’s final schools. The Badgers have targetted Brissett for quite some time and he took an official visit to Wisconsin on October 15 to witness a 31-18 victory over then No. 1 Ohio State.

    “They are one of the strongest programs in college football,” Brissett said of Wisconsin. “They are one or two plays away from winning the Rose Bowl. They are a strong team and are always close to the top.”

  95. avatar
    ChicagoCane says:

    BG – at the end of the day, would you prefer signing Brissett or not?

    Pros: Gives us depth (no Spencer Whipple baby), could possibly be a quarterback of the future.

    Cons: Deters top-flight quarterbacks from signing next year (you know how kids are these days – it is all about the depth chart), doesn’t totally fit our system as a pro-style quarterback.

    Maybe you can add some to the list. Give me some insight bro because I have no clue.

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    …and let me add

    with Ray Ray as our backup QB, and after him, it’s me I guess

  98. Cx3.

    Though it will be disappointing, its not the end of the world. If wants to be a Turd, let him. The opportunity is HERE and if friends and being happy is what’s best for him and Flordia does that for him then let the young man be happy. I just know 2 top flight QBs in 1 class NEVER pans out…

    See Forcier/Robinson, Marve/Harris, Savage/Dodd, Crist/Rees, one of them will not make it, who that one is is the question. He has confidence in his ability so I guess it doesn’t matter and they are making it apparent that they really want him and obviously to them Driskell isn’t that big a deal, he wasn’t their recruit and I’m sure that is part of the SELL JOB.

    If I’m Driskell though, this is 100% a WTF moment for me, but if I’m Brissett, I think I’d pay attention that Driskell DOES have a leg up, he’s already enrolled for the Spring. Then you got Brantly still there who will be SUBSTANTIALLY better in a pro system than the urben meyer crap BUT Brantly will be senior and Reed and Burton will be moved to WRs or something so yeah that means next year the battle is Driskell vs Brissett and the loser will leave. They do have several other QBs on their roster but to me they are all non factors.

    It is what it is, if he comes he comes, he doesn’t he doesn’t. It really wouldn’t make or break because he wasn’t playing this year anyways. The thing is, the transfer QB in becomes more important, and with that you’d think Savage and Forcier become real options. It’ll be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

  99. Well C3 that is truly scary!!! Why would that kid want to go to Florida, don’t they have like 5 QB’s?

  100. Chicago.

    I’d sign. Don’t blow sure for more and end up with None. If you can get a top flight guy next year you do that too. Its all competition. Jacoby would redshirt this year in an ideal world anyways. He IS a pro set QB 100%. He’s not a spread guy, that’s why Florida is going at him so hard, they are changing offenses.

    Savage? Couldn’t beat out a freshman. At Rutgers. He’s no savior for 2012. I wouldn’t be worried about 2012. I’m worried about 2011.

    Forcier is a spread QB all the way.

    imo, of course

  106. Cx3.

    Yeah losing Marve, Cook, and Smith as bad as Smith was really hurt us that year. But it was the same thing 3 in one year, someone will not make it. I mean lots of people are hard on J12 but he had no one to push him and he took a beating that one year with AJ was the back up in 09. Then this year he took a decent pounding as well with the thought in his head Morris was redshirting. We have suffered in the QB department now for a few years and that will take some time. But I’m confident that we’ll land a good QB in 2012, probably from Cali if you leave it up to Carroll and that usually has always paid dividends for us.

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    cc – to answer you question, who know what’s going on. The hot rumor now is he’s going to Florida. Supposedly had dinner with Parcells and Weis. His coach, Jack Daniels, runs gata-land south, most of his top players end up going there, etc etc.

    Hey, for all I know he still signs with us, but if I had to bet money, it’s on the turds just based on everything that’s out there. Not claiming that I actually know.

    Anyway, I’m not going to obsess about what a 17-year old is going to do. It is what it is. Done with it.

    They were because their QB Brantly was NOT a Read Option QB. If anyone if familiar with his recruitment you’ll remember he was HIGHLY recruited as a PRO STYLE QB and he orginally committed to Texas. But Colt McCoy took off and he has family ties or something to Florida and he decommitted from Texas and chose UF and that stunned a lot of recruitniks because they had Tebow and the system didn’t FIT. He saw how much it didn’t fit last year. He’ll be better this year under Weis, he’s a good QB but in the wrong system. Good players are as much about fitting in the right system as it is about their ability. How many times have we seen proof of that???

    ///// how many snaps have the quitters cook/smith/marve taken COMBINED since they quit?? Marve I can half way go with that argument but he’s been injured twice since he left and is just as int prone as the 2 we got sooo……plus what coach in the whole country doesn’t worry bout his qb situation?? There are very few schools that have multi stud qbs on their roster so this ain’t nothing new…btw I wonder if anyone told young goldie that dwyer is a gator feeder school and don’t waste ur time there…anyway j12 made it thru his soph yr taking every snap while being sacked OVER 30 TIMES and just took one to many last year…and 17 physically built MUCH better…I think they’ll be aight!!

    Recruit sees Nebraska license plate, commits to ‘Huskers immediately
    Posted by Ben Kercheval on February 3, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    There are a lot of tactics that sway a recruit to sign with a particular school.

    This might be the most unique.

    Todd Peat, Jr., a four-star defensive tackle from Corona Del Sol High School (AZ), had narrowed his college choices to either Arizona State or Nebraska. On National Signing Day, Peat chose to attend Nebraska. His reason:

    “I was down to ASU and Nebraska,” said Peat, Jr. “I was pretty much going to choose ASU, but was driving home last night and saw a Nebraska license plate, something I’d never seen before and took it as a sign that I should become a Cornhusker.”

    Right on, brother.

  136. Hurri I would expect that from the steelers their QB has totally trashy tendencies! Sex in the bathroom…oops I mean rape in the bathroom, check, bj from a porn star, check, check.

    BG that is the truth. Like I think J12 should have gone to Oregon!

    Off to run some errands, have a great day everyone! :)

    Nash – I said in alternate universe. Back here on earth, J12 took a tremendous pounding and played hurt, because we basically had no plan B, just a QB that ends up being a DB.

    Just playing around

  138. Maybe Golden and crew came to the conclusion that the other guys out there at QB were not up to par.

    Gotta admit none of them were being hunted down by other big schools. Not that this means much at other positions but at QB it does.

    They were there for the picking. Something must’ve deterred the staff.

    Not a big deal IMO. Even if JB comes in he is 3 years out from doing anything.

    Not a time for panic regarding a 3rd string or worse QB.

    If we whiff on JB then the 2012 grinding starts tomorrow. Simple as that.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  139. I do agree this QB issue is probably the first thing Golden has not been what his name says, but this is also a fluid situation and you can’t win them all

  140. I have lost no faith in Morris and Jacory.

    I have yet to see what either could do with THE RIGHT SIGNAL CALLING and tutelage.

  141. Canez, buddy, we need a 3rd string QB. It’s the reason Morris played this year. Not saying this is a huge deal, its just an issue, that’s all

  142. Shwarm worst case you still have Highsmith.

    He is about as good a 3rd string QB as you can ask for.

    No emergency here.

    I still think Savage comes in for next year too.

    We are fine.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  143. avatar
    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Shwarma, agreed. We’ve seen this script before. Golden said himself he “loses sleep” over the QB situation, so it’s important.

    But even Patton made tactical errors. Nobody bats 1000%.

    We just have to roll with whatever happens. Maybe there’s a walk-on they’re looking at. Who knows.

  144. Anyone know th latest on Duron Carter?

    And what time is Brissett announcing?

    Thanks.

  145. Canez1, i think that 4th arm (whipple being the third arm) is just important when it comes time for practice and the spring summer drills. keep guys fresh. plus he’ll be someone who’s back next year and will be able to help whatever stud QB is brought in next year learn the offense. maybe we can get a walk on in the matt perrilli mode or whatever. i’m not looking for a guy who’ll actually ever play. just help in practice.

  146. Hurri, that chick looks tranny to me. Her face is a touch too manly . . .

  147. avatar
    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Check under the hood just to be sure

  148. Este I agree you need bodies for practice as well but to classify not getting a QB in this class as a dire emergency is going overboard IMO.

    That’s what walkons are for.

    IMO Golden obviously has a good feeling about landing Brissett and or Savage.

    I would be cool with either or at this point over the other dudes that were in the mix.

    They will keep Iman busy with dreams of starting again over the spring so that will keep him here.

    I ain’t losing sleep over a 3rd or 4th string kid. We have bigger issues of depth IMO.

    CB and LB come to mind.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

    CapeCoralCane says:

    I think the bottom line on the QB situation is this. If Brissett chooses UM or uf the loser in the Brissett sweepstakes gets Savage. Who would you guys rather have? Neither will play this year so I think I would rater have Savage. Now watch Brissett throw a monkey wrench in things and choose Whiskey.

  150. i don’t think cb or lb depth issues are a problem. deciding who’s going to start is the issue at both those spots.

    i don’t think the qb situation is dire. that’s going too far, but it needs to get filled. savage or another tranfer or big jacory (jacoby) would all be fine with me.

  151. capecoral, i’d take brissett just cause he could RS and be in the system 3 years before asked to start.

    Canechic, I have really been slipping with my RH viewership. I haven’t watched since the trainwreck known as RH of NJ ended. I watched like one episode of DC and it annoyed me because it was so cliche. I need to catch the Miami version. Any show based in Miami is usually a trainwreck and that just makes so bad it’s good TV!

    JSG Burn Notice Hands Down!!!!! Must Watch

  153. Welcome to the Eye, Teflon!

    What is Burn Notice?

  154. savage AND big jacory would be perfect.

  155. Burn Notice is one of the best shows on TV!!! Already a fan of Teflon.

  156. No wonder I didn’t know about it – it is on the same time as Grey’s Anatomy.

    I know, I know. I heard as recently as last night how “ghey” it is. Pfft!

    Also, Canesport has the latest Jacoby rumor on the homepage. Two conflicting things if I had to guess without reading the article (since on here we find out everything anyway): 1) if he is telling people early i think its UF 2) they say he is making a ” good” choice. I would think his croc coaches would say its a “great” choice

  162. Not a joke…I don’t ever watch tv with commercials. I have no idea how I ever survived this long without it! The only tv I watch live is sporting events.

  170. Source: Gators to add all-America Dwyer QB Jacoby Brissett
    by Jason Lieser
    Florida will have a quarterback battle this summer.

    While senior John Brantley is the likely starter, the the team will add a second freshman quarterback to compete with Jeff Driskel. Dwyer QB Jacoby Brissett, an all-America selection, has informed the Gators he will sign with them and make his decision public tonight, a source said.

    sigh…

  171. Good read from Manny

  172. Grey’s Anatomy is still on? Isn’t that show basically about the main nurse or whatever and other nurses just going merry-go-round style on all the different male workers dongs with drama involved and then an occasional outlandish operation they have to perform

    I can’t believe that Desperate House-grannies is still on either – one of our assignment desk editors puts herself in quarantine in front of the television in our break room for that crap. I asked her the other day when I walked in there if they finally put those saber-tooths (older than cougars), trying to dress like 19 year old hoochies, into a nursing home yet

    They’re both on the ABC Network though – when it comes to their shows, it really does stand for “Another Bad Creation” …… and I’m not talking about those little pimps that sang about going to the playground and hooking up with Iesha

    Now, I’ll just wait for the female backlash that is about to be unleashed

  173. Canez1, i separate the two. when i think “depth” i think the numbers we have at the position – we will have the same number of CBs as last year and more LBs than we had last year.

    when we’re talking about who’s going to be starters and how the play is…to me that’s different. i wouldn’t call it a concern right now. we got all of spring to find out. if we go through spring and still are thinking “are any of these guys going to be able to get it done?” then i might start to be concerned cause spring is supposed to be the time the new starters emerge.

  174. Again what Este said

  175. Lol Six, I still watch both of those shows!

    I was between law school and going to med school to be a surgeon so I like medical shows (I hate law shows except Law & Order though, go figure) and it doesn’t hurt that there are cute guys on there to look at.

    Both shows are inconsistent. Sometimes the writing is terrible. More a habit of watching than anything else at this point.

    By the way, it’s funny that women don’t complain about all the geriatric dudes that are ALL over TV, because frankly, I don’t give a F. Let them do their thing. Why is it a big deal to you that women above 40 are on TV acting younger than their age? I don’t care when I see shows that have old dudes in the midst of a mid-life crisis chasing after chicks half their age.

    [shrug]

    TV shows portray a part of reality or sometimes they help you escape from it. If you don’t like it; don’t watch. :-)

    Next…..

  177. Like what bg1906 hit on …… and to answer canechic’s question as well – they actually have 8 QBs for their team, but obviously some of them are on Scout Team

    Chandler Carr, Ryan Parrish, Christian Provancha, Tyler Murphy, Trey Burton, Jordan Reed, John Brantley …. and incoming Jeff Driskel

    The ones that actually matter:

    – Brantley (his dad and uncle both played at UiF) in his Senior year

    – Trey Burton and Jordan Reed who played last year, but only b/c of the offense they ran and hardly passed the ball at all …… both of them combined had 52 pass attempts the entire year in 24 games – like bg1906 said, these kids aren’t going to be under center at all and if they are, maybe some Wildcat crap but highly doubt Weis will run that sh*t

    – Driskel, the future. He’s what Brantley was supposed to be, if Brantley had an OC that ran a different offense suited to him and not that chinese fire drill gimmicky crap they ran last year

    Chandler Carr, Ryan Parrish, Christian Provancha, Tyler Murphy – have fun on the Scout team

    It’s not a bad move for Jacoby if he rolls up there … it’s only a year difference between Driskel and Morris anyway – who knows if they’d redshirt Jacoby up at UiF

    I’m with Canez1 fully though – I’d be more concerned with the DBs and LBs, you can never have enough of either

    Since I’m talking about UiF – they have 16 LBs total listed on their roster and 9 DBs total – that’s not including the guys they just signed …… just like the QBs, some of them are on the Scout team, but that’s a sh*tload of players

    Shwarma, agreed. We’ve seen this script before. Golden said himself he “loses sleep” over the QB situation, so it’s important.

    But even Patton made tactical errors. Nobody bats 1000%.

    We just have to roll with whatever happens. Maybe there’s a walk-on they’re looking at. Who knows.

    >>>>>>>>>>>

    Patton, another of my favorites, who really knew what Stars and Stripes in the Blood meant.

  183. usually the only guys who do great in spring then suck during the season (unless they are 4th string and doing great against other 4th string/walk on guys) are the QBs. if you are doing great against the 1s then usually you see it translate. and i’m not talking great as in a great spring game. a guy can fall and boom the WR got 100 yard spring game. talkin the whole spring.

    at LB i think there is a lot of quality. but unproven. remember the 2002 season we had an all new secondary. first time starters sean taylor, antrell rolle, kelly jennings (i think) and mo’ sikes. was no guarantee they’d be awesome, but you could tell just from the little they played the year before that they were going to hold it down. not saying we got a sean taylor at LB but those guys are going to be special too.

  184. JSQ – I don’t think that Grey’s Anatomy could be called a medical show … more like a medical soap opera, right? Same as with any of the CSI shows on my network (CBS) … any of the other hundreds of doctor shows that have come & gone … any of the other lawyer shows that have come and gone

    I’d probably rather watch Night Court than Law & Order or The Defenders … and I’d rather watch 1 hour of behind the scenes reality stuff of the Canes coaching staff or a high school coaching staff, than Friday Night Lights

    And you know that a lot of women don’t complain about the geriatric dudes b/c, well, it’s true that men get better looking with age as opposed to the Tupperware plastic party that is going on in the lips, face, neck, eyes, arms, belly, legs of these older women – and in Desperate House-grannies or other shows, you’re telling me you don’t see older women chasing after younger guys? Wasn’t there a show called Cougar Town? …… and you don’t think that guys rag on older guys that have insecurity mid-life crisis complexes? Come onnnn

    I don’t mind the Tupperware plastic party going on in the “eyes” region of the woman’s body – bewbs for anyone that didn’t get that reference that Canez1, Truth, me and some others used for a while – just as long as it’s done right and they’re not mis-shaped …… (O)(o), like that …… see how one of the areolas is all jacked up, stretched out bigger than the other? (O)(o)

    I remember spending an entire 2 days on the radio – that’s 8 hours total – talking about what guys should & shouldn’t do when it comes to them trying to make up for their insecurities when they’re older. F*ck it man, just roll with it, you are what you are

    Forget the comb-over, just shave it. Old dudes with wrinkled faces and pitch black hair just look weird – f*ck the Just For Men hair coloring … embrace the salt n’ pepa. No need to douse yourself in Drakkar Noir, while wearing an outlandish big collared gaudy shirt that is halfway unbuttoned so you can show your big gold chain that has an italian horn on it, then go get in your convertible domestic car of choice that is blaring some Warrant “Cherry Pie” or Jan Hammer “Miami Vice Theme”. El Camino’s are for guys named “Machete” b/c they can pull it off, but also possible child molesters – you might as well be driving a damn Ice Cream Truck that has roofie flavored Sponge Bob cones. No one should be able to smell your Jovan Musk from the around the corner, before you walk up to them. Skinny jeans are not cool for anyone over the age of 17 that isn’t some Emo idiot – ever – there’s no way your balls and dong should look like a division sign in your crotch b/c they’re getting squeezed to hell ….. and to be clear, Emos are dumbasses. Don’t roll your sleeves up on your t-shirt – either get one that actually fits, or remember that you’re not James Dean and that’s where your store your cigarette box b/c that’s what people did in the early 50s. Be more like Clooney & Connory, not Costner & Cage.

    These are just a few examples

    Calvin, Golden addressed your concerns about the U recruiting too man Kool n the Gang OOS kids…

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Golden promised Wednesday the Hurricanes won’t ever be under the gun or strangers in their own backyard again as long as he’s coach. His plan to change htings: put all nine of his coaches to recruit what he calls ‘The Eye Of The Storm’ — Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

    “All of Florida is vitally important ot us. We’ve got to get back to our roots…,” Golden said. “We’re going to get back to being really strong in those areas. We’re talking right now about which areas we’re going to allocate. Not only do we have all nine coaches within two hours of where we are right now, which is what we call the Eye of the Storm, we have all nine coaches in-state, which is really important to us. If we take care of our home state, we’re going to be in great shape. We’ll have all nine guys in the state and all nine guys here in the eye, which I think is a departure from what they’ve done before. We want to make sure we get it right here.

    “There are too many kids signing late, too many kids that are the next Ed Reed or the next Ray Lewis who was the last player taken, or the next Reggie Wayne. There are too many of those kids locally to go all over the country when they’re right here in our backyard. We want to make sure our central focus is here and then go out of state to get kids that want to be a part of this tradition.

    “The number of kids that come out from down here and play Division I football is the reason whywe’re developing our recruiting philosophy… if there’s 350 or 400 kids that sign Division I scholarships in Florida, we only need 18 to 20 a year to be a great team. Not to compete, but a great team. So let’s get it right at home and go from there.”

    Golden isn’t just taking a new approach to recruiting, he’s taking a new approach all around. Among other things on tap: junior days, camps, coaching clinics. In essence, he’s extending his hand out and shaking hands with people who often wondered why that old football powerhouse down the street was ignoring them.

    “We are the University of Miami, the University of all of South Florida,” Golden said. “And we want to make sure we are giving kids an opportunity to learn, to be exposed to the University of Miami, our mission on campus. And clearly we want an opportunity to evaluate to see which ones are good enough to be Hurricanes and who wants to be Miami Hurricanes.

Better conditioned, better prepared, better coaching, better offensive and defensive schemes etc….

    Coach Al Golden calls Bill Parcells a prized mentor to him.

    Bill Parcells works for the Dolphins and its owner Steve Ross who owns 95% Sun Life Stadium

    Coach Al Golden UM team plays at Steve Ross Sun Life stadium.

    Dwyer Head Coach Jack Danies has informed that Bill Parcells took Jacoby Brissett & Curt Maggitt to Duffy’s in Jupiter. Parcells “was funny and real informative,” and then sold Jacoby to go to the University of Florida.

    Does this smack of conflict of interest?

    That is, one the one hand, Bill Parcells works for Steve Ross & Sun life Stadium and on the other hand, takes a Jacoby Brissett to dinner to persuade this player to NOT play at Sun Life. This is an event that were this player to suit to play bi-weekly at Sun-Life, it could potentially cause the player’s team to win more games, fill Sun Life Stadium, and consequently benefit & continue to enrich further the boss of Bill Parcells.

    by Jason Lieser

    Florida will have a quarterback battle this summer.

    While senior John Brantley is the likely starter, the the team will add a second freshman quarterback to compete with Jeff Driskel. Dwyer QB Jacoby Brissett, an all-America selection, has informed the Gators he will sign with them and make his decision public tonight, a source said.Brissett had narrowed his finalists to Miami, Florida, Wisconsin and Washington. He will boost the Gators’ recruiting class, which was rated in the top 25 nationally prior to adding him.

    It is unknown if Brissett has actually faxed his letter of intent to Florida, which is necessary to finalize his decision.

    A University of Florida football spokesperson did not immediately return a message seeking comment. Dwyer coach Jack Daniels also did not return a message. By choosing Florida, he will join three of his former teammates. Florida rising sophomores SS Matt Elam, TE Gerald Christian and SL Robert Clark played with Brissett at Dwyer three years ago.
    As a senior, Brissett completed 63.5 percent of his passes and threw for 2,473 yards. He had 32 touchdown passes against one interception. He also rushed 63 times for 368 yards and seven touchdowns. He is 6-4, 225 and rated the No. 4 prospect in The Palm Beach Post’s coverage area. Gators coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday the team was light at quarterback. He is considering position changes for Trey Burton and Jordan Reed, both of whom played quarterback last year, and back-up Tyler Murphy is a candidate to move, too.

    Driskel already is enrolled at Florida and will have an advantage over Brissett by participating in spring practices. Florida signed 18 players on national signing day, but Muschamp said there were “some other possibilities.” Over the past two years, Brissett repeatedly said he wanted to play football and basketball in college, so this could also be a big get for Billy Donovan.

    What will Jacoby Brissett and Jeff Driskel do at Florida this season?

    I’ve been on record as saying that he was a poor fit in the Meyer offense. RB, you remember this debate we had. I admit I was right. He made the right choice to avoid joining his ex-Panthers at UF when we had the spread option.

    But now, the scheme changes, and so does the possibility that he will succeed at UF. I don’t know if he can beat out Driskel, but I love a guy that believes he can. I’m not just happy that Miami isn’t getting thiers. I’m happy that Coach Weis and Boom are showing the haters who is boss around here.

    Go Gators!
    Go Panthers!

    I know Driskel is rated number 1, but it is hard for me to imagine a qb with more attributes than Jacoby. Jacoby leads in experience and pressure situations. Not sold at all on Driskel. Doesn’t make sense to me to have both. Weis and Parcel better not be wasting this kids talent. Why sell him on a dream. I still feel he might switch to FSU for some reason. IMO that is the team with the biggiest qb problem. Miami still has Jacory and Morris. Brissett could beat out Manuel and throw passes to O’Leary, Benjamin, and Gregory Dent. FSU is going to have a Florida high school all star team. Amazing last two classes.

    Riviera Beach Says:

    Besides as a Dwyer fan, Jacoby looks horrible in Palm Beach Gardens colors.

    Burke Says:
    February 4th, 2011 at 1:26 pm
    If true, a bit hard to fathom since he would be a likely four year QB starter at a strong and respected Wisconsin program as opposed to a possible 5 year bench rider at QB at UF, but who knows what goes through the mind of 18 year old kids.

    Gatornation Says:
    February 4th, 2011 at 1:27 pm
    lol @ RB. I was Jupiter. My senior class was involved in an ‘incident’ with the PBG Gator logo before their homecoming game. Wasn’t me though, I’d never desecrate those colors. I agree, Dwyer’s pretty awesome.

    UF’s last two classes are better on paper than FSU. At the very least you have to admit it is every bit its equal. Don’t you think RB?

    Just some other rumors out there is that Demar Dorsey may wind up a Gator. Not sure if that is a transfer or if he’s signing and placing from JUCO.

    R beach when is it ever a bad idea to have a position battle to see who will start at qb,the most important position on the team, as opposed to just handing the position to someone? when is it a bad idea to have this little thing called DEPTH, you know those are good things, people do tend to get hurt and having a great back up always bodes well. were u in on his recruitment, how do u know what weis told him, if he is as good as you say, then he will start.Im not sure how you can keep count on who as been in more pressure situations, and who is Parcel? You make some very valid points sometimes, and other times……but anyway.

    Glad to have him on board competition breeds sucess. All you hatin canes fans, go complain on your on teams site, i mean if he will never see a snap, and if he is so bad then why such an uproar??? Or maybe you are in a thing called denial, and you realize that the once mighty U, is steadily sinking. coach al” Golden” showers let another huge commit slip away, since teddy b has already jumped ship. You canes do realize how terrible your class was right, one top ten player, three not even ranked, 8 not even a top 25 player at their position. lol

    CLASSIC! I LOVE IT! :)

  201. Also before anyone goes blaming the staff.

    YOU CAN’T. There are MANY things that go into selling a recruit to attend your school. BUT in the end the kid will do what he WANTS to do and not what always EVERYONE ELSE wants him to do or feels is best for him. Its his decision right, wrong, or indifferent. If he wants to be at Miami he will, if he wants to be at Florida he will. Life will go on for us and we’ll be great with or without him.

    Good luck to him and move on. It just opens up more opportunity and another scholarship for someone else.

    Hey balla…just opinions that’s all dawg…

  203. BUT if I’m Driskell I’m still saying WTF and I assure you in 2 years or so 1 of them is leaving. GURANTEE IT.

  204. Greatest Show on Turf didn’t do sh*t against Tony Dungy, Monte Kiffin and the Bucs

    Someone will always find a way to exploit your weakness, then others will follow

    1999, the year they beat the Titans in the Super Bowl – they were averaging 34 points a game … they play a young Bucs team that had rookie Shaun King at QB b/c Dilfer went down in Week 12 – and they score 11 points against the Bucs on an unbelievable freak catch by Ricky Proehl on rookie Brian Kelly, in the 4th Quarter

    Up until that point, the Rams were losing that game going into the 4th Quarter, 6-5

    The next year in 2000, Monday night game in Tampa, they get beat by the Bucs

    The next year after that in 2001, Monday night game in St. Louis, they get beat by the Bucs – again

    The next year after that in 2002, Monday night game in Tampa, they get beat by the Bucs – for the 3rd time in 3 years

    Rams may have had the Greatest Show on Turf, but the Bucs shut their sh*t down

  205. Nash.

    They can’t MAKE a recruit go here. It is what it is. All they can do is sell the school, sell the opportunity. He has NO ONE at UM. At Florida Matt Elam, Gerald Christian and few others are there too that he knows from school. If he wasn’t playing ball would he come to Miami or got to UiF, probabaly Florida because he knows those guys, be different if O’Leary or Maggit had decided UM and he wasn’t a loner, its a safe pick for him and the person left feeling uncomfortable IMO is Driskell. Sorta like C1 said, remember Cam was a Gator first, I know his situation was a bit different but you REALLY think he was going to wait for Tebow to leave???? Too much talent…absolutely not. Same thing with Driskell or Brissett. Its all good now, but when the competition REALLY starts someone HAS to lose and the loser will want out because there is only 1 QB. Driskell has a head start too, so cards are in his favor as of now. But at the end of the day, EFF ‘EM, they not Canes so let them figure it out! Ha! :-)

    Whose judgment is it that Jacoby-to-Florida-persuader Bill Parcells of Miami (Dolphins) is a prized mentor to Al Golden?

    Who said that he wanted to have at least 2 QBs for this recruitment class, but offered only one Jacoby, and now he is left at the altar with no bride, or bride substitute?

    Can we blame Randy Shannon if JB goes Croc with both Golden & Muschump being new coach hires?

    Ok, bg1906,

    we can still blame Randy Shannon for missing out on Jacoby… and even the lack of time for this new staff, right? We did blame Larry Coker — the cokerization of players that is — for Shannon flaws, so yes, it would fall in form that we blame Shanzook.

    pb(EOTHROH11) says:

    Let’s see what the kid says. And Nash, maybe they didn’t offer the other kids because they know they aren’t good enough.

    We are in a better position at QB going into 2011 than we were in 2010. At least we know Morris has the potential to be a solid player.

    Golden has to be working his 2-3 prime targets for 2012 already. I have confidence in him.

  213. avatar
    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Since you asked me, I’ll bite, but I want to be done with this, it’s over:

    1. Not enough time (Golden did his best and maybe shouldn’t have put all or most of his QB eggs in this basket, but, hey, it happens)

    2. HS head coach is a turd, and turd recruiter extrordinaire

    3. Pressure from all the other guys that went to gville from that school

    4. Bill Parcell & Charlie Weis vs Jacoby Brissett. Not a fair fight. They could have gotten him to go play for a team in Egypt, if there was one

    5. Local newspaper, the PBP, has a recruiter masquerading as a reporter, Jorge Milian, writing articles to try to sway the kid towards turdland.

    6. Weis told him he would start over Driskel in 2012 (this is just my guess)

    Get the picture. Next…

  214. Six, I have to seriously disagree with you on the whole “men get better looking with age” stuff. Um, no.

    My point was NOT that women don’t chase after younger guys on those shows. My point is, why does it matter? The same thing goes on with shows that have older men and you don’t see me bringing it up. I don’t care. It’s a non-issue. But sometimes it seems like you guys like to harp on that stuff on here – making fun of Sex and the City and what not because the women are over 40.

    My point is: WHO CARES?! Let them do their thing! If you don’t like it; don’t watch!

  215. I’ve had stuff like that happen to me, WI Cane. Empathy took over when I read your post and I think my heart stopped for a second too! I’m glad it’s all okay!

  219. Uncle Luke is running for mayor . . .

  220. Honestly, i don’t care if brissett comes here or not, if he’s a gator at heart, he needs to go their, the last thing we need are guys committing here because somebody had to basically pull wisdom teeth to get them here, that’s not what UM football was built off of. Like when what’s his name, the coach ovr their at texas tech now, told randy shannon when he was recruiting em, “you not good enuff to play at Miami” wasn’t long after that, yeah, coach tubbs got em to come here off that mental challenge. Although shannon may have come to UM anyway, we don’t need to wine and dine all these croc area recruits, either ride with us or go where you’ll get beat by us, at some point yall know it’s going to happen at UM.

    Like kehoe said, he’s not sure when, but it’s going to get back to us being dominant again, you know the stuff that for some reason many believe this team can’t get back too because of the so called level playing field in college football these days, lol, yeah right.

    We don’t need a qb this year, it’s not that serious, we do need 1 this year though, in order to have a true qb competition come next year for morris, but morris does have pride, just like jacory did, but the problem with jacory is, he didn’t believe in the plays called because he understood the offense, when he called his own plays he believed in them more though.

  221. Double edge sword imo, offer someone else when you cleary want JB, he knows and it could look bad…Don’t offer someone else and we get “left at the alter” as stated in earlier post. Bottom line unless you get that loi quickly anything can sway the decision. We will be fine as JB would be riding pine here too. To quote some earlier posts: “NEXT!”

    PS. CK I see spence decapitating o’leary in first half of first game and no more worries..clean hit of course. jmo

    I bleed Orange and green, if you aint runnin with it run from it motherf***ers

  222. Look guys, WE LOST it’s ok. It happens. Our staff did all they could.

    Balla there is a difference yeah you can blame Randy because he was HERE. You can’t blame these guys because they were NOT here and in 4 weeks LOOK WHAT THEY DID DO. I’ve told ALL OF YOUR recruiting is RELATIONSHIPS and TRUST. So yeah Muschamp was there but the LITTLE contact he got from UM came from Aubrey Hill, who is at Florida now??? Aubrey Hill. Also he has a prior relationship with Weis because from ND because ND started recruiting him as a Jr. Add to that ALL his friends are at UF.

    Our staff tried their best to get the kid but really hard to battle all that was against them. I agree with them, Golden said he didn’t want to just take kids to take them, so MAYBE he got the indiction Sousa would stick with Wake, that was a DISTINCT possibility and the other kids maybe once Fisch saw them he wasn’t sold. We’ll be ok. Just get the transfer and go get a stud in 2012. I don’t see why you guys are melting down. QBs if you don’t get them EARLY are NEVER there. We got lucky he was and we went all out, we just lost, it happens.

    Another guest at the event was Tim Harris, who formerly worked at UM and was just named the head coach at Booker T. Washington High School.

    “I thought it was an excellent event,” Harris said. “I think it fits everything that coach (Golden) is trying to do, especially being new to South Florida, to come in and set up a nice social situation where we could build a nice relationship with all the high schools in Dade County. It helps the overall situation in terms of building a good relationship with Miami, understanding the things we need to do to develop for our kids to be at UM one day.

    “I told coach (Golden) when I left that I think it’s something that will be talked about among the coaches that were there – it’ll be great feedback. He opened up a great door to set himself up for the future.”

    I’d say that in the “unexpected” outcome that you get caught doing something wrong, arguing why/how you got caught (at the altar naked) and busted, is usually pointless. Commit to not offend again, rather than offer arguments/points how you got caught, and live a purpose driven life therefrom. Learn and say “Never again!”

  259. balla4lyf, parcells doesn’t care about UM, go and check and see parcells history of drafting from UM, alot of old nfl coaches tried to railroad UM players, that’s why when jimmy got to the nfl, he ran parcells, gibbs and whoever else was in the nfc least out of there, with UM players and cherry picked from other colleges and make that team what it was.

    Like nic “d-non winning” saban(i always laugh at people being mad he left), i didn’t care whether parcells stayed or left myself, the teams he always put together were borign to me on offense and barely won games, jimmy johnson was about blowing people out. Alot of these coaches didn’t like jimmy either and that brand of football he brought.

    six, i use to tell people that rams offense worked against teams who were scared of it and didn’t have a defense that could put pressure on the cb, and that lucky heave kurt warner threw up, brian kelly was right their, got caught slipping, i was laughing that whole game, but what made me mad was, the bucs oc was calling all these conservative plays, and than they ruled that 1 pass a non-catch by williams i think, they wanted the rams to go that year, all tampa had to do was score at least 1 more time, a touchdown or 2 more fieldgoals, but the oc kept being conservative, and for real reidel anthony actually wasn’t that bad of a receiver when given a chance, he made plays, although he was a gator, they never used him to the best of his ability.

    shaun king did decent to, but that game reminded me of back when the infamous frank cost-us was the qb when we played nebraska for the national championship game, sapp and crew were killing laurence phillips and frazier and them, come the 4th quarter and your defense is dawg tired, that option crap is going to score, and that’s what happened, defense was on the field way to long and that option crap broke thru, than of course, plenty of time was left on the clock, but frank cost-us, struck out again!

  260. Well, I’m almost outta here.

    I guarantee Shields will be given an opportunity to shine in the SB. Regardless of how well he has played all season long, when it’s crunch time he’s still a rookie and Big Ben will want to test him rather than test Woodson or Williams. The only time he was blatantly beat under those circumstances this year was against the Eagles, and that was a loooooooong time ago. Lately when he gets tested and the pressure is on, he has not just played well, but he has come up with picks. He will get his chance in the SB. The U WILL make some noise in the SB.

Yall know people from & in Miami not to shy alot of times, so yall gotta excuse us cause we gone excuse ourselves anyway.

    Just to watch those people in the crowd looking in shock and awwe and than looking at the females who really wanted to get up and dance with em too. It was good back than, and yall make sure yall make a circle for og cup cakes at work.

  264. Mubarak’s son Gamal does not want to be Egypt’s next president. Experts say it’s no big deal, because “if you’ve seen one Mubarak, you’ve seen Gamal.

  266. It’s the Year of the Rabbit.
    I think rabbits are cute . . . their noses twitch and their feet make little key chains.

  267. “I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him? It doesn’t say. The book leaves it up to you, the reader, to decide. Then, at the very end, there’s a page you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid.”

    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. “You don’t have to tell me,” I said. “I’m off the team, aren’t I?” “Well,” said Coach, “you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you’re wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times.” It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that’s when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    Are the reports out there confirming that Kevin Nelson is back on the team true?

  269. per SN:

    Linebacker Kevin Nelson left the program after the end of the season, and did not practice with the team during the Sun Bowl preparation.

    Rumors were going around that Nelson would not be back on the team. It is now being confirmed that Nelson will indeed stay a Hurricane and remain with the University of Miami.

    Nelson chose the Hurricanes over the Gators in 2010 and came on board with his Gainesville High teammate Devonta Davis.

    Nashvillecane says:

    That’s why I couldn’t understand why c’sport, manny and the other cane reporters were up there…exp after the leaks…can’t blame the kid going where he thought he’d be happy…

  300. Several months ago, not only was Florida not a major player for the 6-foot-5, 225-pounders’ services, they were out of the running entirely after the Nation’s No. 75 rated prospect took former Gator head coach Urban Meyer’s grayshirt offer as a sign of disrespect.

    “You know, he is a proud guy,” explained Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels. “He took that to heart because he knew he was better than that. He had better offers than that. That wasn’t all though. Florida was out because of the offense they ran under the old staff. He didn’t really fit what they were doing in the spread offense because he’s more of a pro-style quarterback. He can get out and run, he can beat you with his legs if he has to, but he wants to drop back in the pocket and pass the ball.”

    While there were quite a few prospects who slammed the door on Florida when Meyer decided to step down, when it comes to Brissett, it actually jarred the door open somewhat.

    “When they hired coach Weis, that is when it started to turn around [for Florida],” said Daniels. “He was very honest with Jacoby. He’s not afraid to speak his mind and he feels like Jacoby can become a great quarterback working under him.”

    When Charlie Weis walks into a high school or goes on an in-home visit with a prospect, his reputation precedes him.

    His resume could almost be sung to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas.

    32 years of coaching, 16 in the NFL, five as a head coach, four Super Bowl Rings, two All-Americans (Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen) and one future Hall of Famer (Tom Brady).

    And if you haven’t heard about his accomplishments, he doesn’t shy away from telling you about them.

    “I wouldn’t call him boastful, but coach Weis is proud of his accomplishments,” said Daniels. “He’s not afraid to let a kid know what he’s done – especially a kid he wants to work with. People think it’s him boasting, but everyone already knew about his history. He doesn’t need to talk about it because anyone who is familiar with football knows about his track record. All it takes is a minute to look up his history and see what he’s been able to accomplish with quarterbacks in the past.”

    Weis’ history with quarterbacks is what helped turn Brissett to the Orange & Blue.

    In doing so, he disappointed a person who is all Orange & Green.

    As if making a college choice isn’t hard enough, upon deciding that the Gators were his choice, Brissett had another difficult task at hand – convincing his mother – Lisa Brown – that Florida was the place for him.

    According to coach Daniels, that wasn’t easy.

    “It’s been tough. She’s grown up a Hurricane fan. She feels like that is the best place for her son. I can’t say it is, I can’t say it isn’t. She’s coming to terms that it is her son’s decision and she is going to love him either way.”

    While one family member may not be completely satisfied with the choice, another quasi family member will be thrilled.

    “What played another big part in it [Brissett's choice of Florida] is Matt [Elam] being there,” said Daniels. “Those two are as close to brothers.”

  301. Wish he was Devin Lucien! Ha! :-)

    So when a kid doesnt want to come here bc of the depth chart we rip him for being afraid of competition. But when he goes somewhere where they happen to have a lot of depth at his position we call him dumb..kind of a double standard no? I hate that he went to the turds but thats where he wants to be and with his best friend there is not too surprising…at least he isnt affraid of competition. Wasnt Brock Berlin also supposed to be better than Grossman when they were both signed and look how that played out…at least the kid isnt afraid to go somewhere and compete for his spot…good luck to him…i hope bama, lsu, auburn, and tennessee all whip his ass.

    Brissett made his choice. We meet them next year. Let us see his face after we kick the crap out of him and his Turds.
    I trust Al Golden. He had a huge mess to clean up after that weird HC we just fired. I blame Randy for this situation we are in now. I really would not be surprised if, after he was fired, he convinced Teddy and the WR to go to his buddy , Charlie Strong. I do not put it past him. From what I have heard and read, he had a vindictive personality.
    Anyway, we will be fine. Morris should be our QB for at least the next 2 years. Next year AG will get a power QB that wants to play for the U.

  313. I actually give him credit for doing what HE wants to do. He has to practice, he has to live with the decision good, bad, or indifferent. I wish Lucien would have done the same.

  314. Sad thing is Brissett is going to end up a tight end.. LOL

  315. Just spoke to his mom (who is big Cane fan) – she’s upset, trying to talk him out of it – he’s not faxing in his letter of intent until to UF until Monday. But obviously she’s already been trying to sway him all along so wouldn’t get your hopes up too much…
    “There’s a chance it may not be finalized,” Lisa Brown said. “I’m going to try to talk him out of it. He hasn’t signed anything. It’s just an oral commitment.”

    Asked if there’s a chance he might change his mind she said “Yes, hopefully.”

    She also said she was surprised he picked Florida. And she said she hasn’t talked to Cane coaches recently.

    And she mentioned how Matt Patchan was an influence, calling him Jacoby’s best friend since he was 6

  316. Greentree WTF are you talking about?

    No one is hatin on the kid. I just said IMO his choice doesn’t add up.

    Check your facts guy.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  317. I know I previously said the best decision was for him to come here, but the more I think about it, the more I think the kid made the right decision for him

    Brissett went where he wanted. He went to a school with an all-world OC. And you know what, I think he showed he isn’t afraid of competition (Driskel) and actually went somewhere where the depth chart was more favorable (Brantley leaves after this year, which would have ideally been an RS year here, and then there is not a clear cut heir apparent, so Brissett thinks, why not me?)

    I was posting in your reference, you don’t play favorites, lol.

    brisset, it’s all good, and tell his mom, don’t try and convince him, lol, his momma gone go off on em tonight after the game, lol. She from the back in the days when playing for the gaytors was bs, and she knows the real history of Florida football period, she wants her son to go to a real school where he’ll have real alumni, and it’s real family and tradition, those gaytors, lol, whatever, nobody remembers them as being dominant, at least i don’t, it was all bs, oscar cryer got out of it just in time before UM got a headcoach with more no how.

    Whoever the starter is this year, he’ll have to earn it for sure, and for the 1st time in 2 years, their will be a qb competition, a real battle. Unlike last year, and also, jacory missed spring practice and it showed alot, that injury j12 came off of was not all the way healed, people will, psycholocially, jacory just wanted to get rid of the ball this year, and he did that, he’s never been injured like that, alot of people will say, oh, it was just a hand injury, lol, any injury that requires surgery is a serious injury. Yall will see the return of j12, morris is going to have ot bring it, and may the best man win. I still like j12 because he’s a home run hitter, and in the right offense under the right guidance, the deep balls will be their under the right oc, plus, he’ll be in an offense where there actually are check down routes.

    That 2008 class can still get 1 before they go, well b.harris already gone, who wearing #1 next year.

  327. The only reason for me to even think about lucien is from what i read what yall said about his mom, anybody got more proof of her, i missed out on that.

    Dude is a clown. His last game he completed more passes to the other team than he did his own.

    Morris has pocket presence, Jacory does not.

    Might be considered overrated, but that damn arm-strength and ability to give the athletic receivers we DO have the ability to haul ass after the catch comes into play.

    Morris’ only real flaw comes in his passes over the middle of the field.. It’s like he doesn’t notice linebackers right off rip, whereas Jacory doesn’t notice the other team even being on the field..

    Jacory may run, but it’s scared. Otherwise you get things like the UVA game or Jason Worilds swallowing him whole in ’09 in Blacksburg.

  332. No mind changing…

    JACOBY JUST SPOKE TO MEDIA Reply

    ——————————————————————————–
    spoke for just a few minutes. said it was close, that he changed his mind 25 times. Jacoby said he’d fax in his papers to UF in the morning. When told his mother said he’d wait till Monday he said he didn’t know then when he’d send it. He essentially said his decision is final though.

    You know something. I respect Momma Brown. She stands for her belief. As far as she can see, the head man at UiF refused to meet the mother of the boy he so “COVET” as UiF signal caller of Gator future.

    She wants to protect her flesh & blood: ” A redshirt QB, the No. 1 recruit & top QB Briskell with 4 full years to play and he wants my son to go with him” Is there any mother in the House. Mother Brown wants to ask Head Gator: “Tell me straight up Coach, do you want just to deny your archrival

    Damyum, i missed it, forget lucien’s highlights, youtube his mom, i’m on the prowl.

    brisset has to go where he feels like goin and his mom is trying to let em know what’s best for him, but this is that part in a young mans life where the mom will have to live with his decision, he’s growing up becoming a man now and gotta make choices.

    …or do you really want my boy?

  336. Calvin – ya, that was Bert Emmanuel that made that catch in the NFC Championship game and it took forever for them to rule on it … now, they have the Bert Emmanuel rule

    Everyone around here said the exact same thing. You come out and punch the Rams in the mouth with their sissy asses and you beat them. Brooks, Lynch, Barber, Sapp – they beat the sh*t out of Isaac Bruce and esp. Torry Holt. Faulk even took some nasty ass hits and didn’t like it at all. I remember in one of those Monday Night Football games, Derrick Brooks picked off Warner, was running toward the endzone and Warner’s dumbass started running toward him – Sapp put it into 5th gear and came flying down the field and blasted the hell out of Warner

    I always hated the Rams during those days. I wanted them to try that offense against the Bucs – and they did, and everyone saw the result

    Like you said as well – you think about the Bucs team, it wasn’t exactly an offensive juggernaut. Shaun King, Jacquez Green, Reidel Anthony and Bert Emmanuel …… with Warrick Dunn, who was their best player on Offense

    Keyshawn came in 2000 – but it was still mainly just him and Jacquez Green

    Imagine if the Bucs had just 2 other Offensive players that were better than Jacquez, Reidel, Bert Emmanuel and Dave Moore at TE

    Saw a pic of her – on one of those snarky websites like deadspin a couple of years ago. Still shot of her singing at a concert, was wearing jeans & you could see she had pissed all over herself. Seen videos of her singing live & she literally sounds like a screeching cat

    Bg,

    It’s not about the boy (Jacoby) not being a man and doing what he WANTS, but Ms Brown wants to look at the head coach in the eyeball and ask him why he wants her son when he already got two freshmen QBs on the UF roster?

    But Muschamp the chump ain’t coming. A woman can see through an older man’s sinister heart. A MAN can pull at a boy’s pride making him marvel that he’s all that to his own peril.

  339. six, you and me both, i don’t like the patriots but i always rspected ty law, and he set the tone for punking those ram wideouts by noticing how sapp and them did it. I remember that time when marshall faulk tried to run it up the gut and sapp basically picked him up and Baptized em and everybody was looking around like that was suppose to be some type of penlaty or something, lol. And for real, alstot was a bad man, but they tried to use him to much an didn’t use warrick dunn enuff, here it is that man done made it all the way to the nfl and i still couldn’t understand why they kept giving dunn the shorty treatment, never made sense to me, than when alstot got hurt, they had to use dunn and people were acting like they were surprised he was that effective.

    brian kelly pissed me off with that, let that man just heave the ball up their like that, you right their, make a play, and what pissed me off, tampa had to do was get another fieldgoalm and irregardless of whether the rams scored or not, they would’ve had enuff time to kick another fieldgoal to win the game instead of having to be down by 4 after that. I mean it’s was 4th and a mile, he let that man catch that pass on 4th down, had he defended that, the game was over.

  340. Canez1, quit star gazing man, just because jeff driskell has that so called #1 qb by his name, doesn’t actually mean he’s the #1 qb, i wasn’t impressed with the way he played in that all star game myself. He plays like the old vick. The old vick thought the only reason they called deep pass patterns was to clear out space so he could take off and run.

  341. move on, we knew this was coming so life goes on

  342. i seriously need to upgrade my TV right away. the damn thing is distorted now. the edges of the screen are past the edges of the TV screen and the buttons to fix that are busted on the remote and no universal remote will do the trick. damn thing is messin with my budget. was supposed to last til the end of the year.

    or maybe its just a sign i need to watch the super bowl in some 1080 P goodness and not this pixelated thing i got right now.

  343. if Jacoby wants to go to the Gators then that’s where he should go. if anything you should respect competition and so called #1 QB recruit being in the same class didn’t scare him off.

  344. A brisset a basket, he about to get his azz kicked. I don’t care if he doesn’t want to be here, if he’s a gator at heart, he’ll play like it. Again, no need in his Mother trying to pursuade him to come down south, just let em see the wisdom you were trying to give em.

    When that orange, green & white starts rolling again, look out. The one thing we don’t need to do is play fsu early, that’ll be to much emotion to start the season off for this young squad, but thank God art kehoe’s back, he’ll make sure his unit is ready and will go into games with that real UM look, enuff with the fake stuff and al golden looks like he’s ready to blow his stack until he sees what UM football is all about.

    core values & the brand comingto a football field near U.

  345. My f*cking nightmare if this is true

    http://www.tampabay.com/hometeam/blog/countryside-qb-gray-crow-gets-offer-miami/8427/

    I just wrote on here in the last blog about how this kid was completely overrated and a d*ck … the kid threw for a little over 1,300 yards this past year with 7 TDs and 8 INTs & he was behind an OLine at Clearwater Countryside that would rival some college sized OLines

    6’6 300 .. 6’5 280 .. 6’5 300 .. 6’1 250 .. 6’1 275

    but that’s all he did, as well as only having a .539 passing completion percentage

    I’m not an OCoordinator at a major university like Fisch is … but I’m not lying to anyone on here when I say that Fisch needs to wake the hell up about offering this kid if this is for real

    Freaking Notre Dame dropped his ass when Brian Kelly got there, with Kelly saying that they’ll wait and see what he does his Senior year … Fisch hasn’t even waited for his Senior year to start and he offers this kid?

    I simply don’t get it

  346. is “gray crow” an american indian?

  347. This is a great article my son found by a smart @ss writer, just like Nick!
    I’ll admit it was a tough year for old Big Ben. Commissioner Goodell suspended me for the first six games of the season because I was accused of sexual assault last year. Twice. It was a really dark time for me.

    “But, not only did I come back, but I came back even sooner than I was supposed to, after only four games. I don’t think I could have done any of it without God. I thank God every single day of my life that I was born a) super good at football and b) white. If either of those things were different, man, would I be in prison right now.”

  348. Six,

    Kids got core values. U can’t put a price on that.

    plus some sweet stats to go along.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  349. Ever notice that every loser ,crackhead, jailbird and recovering whatever always likes to thank this “god” character.

    If heaven is filled with all of these freaks then I’ll pass. Not that I would be headed there anyway even if the nonsense turned out to be true :)

    Give me a friggin break.

    I’m not religious whatsoever but I just find it funny that the weak and feeble have to use it as a crutch.

    Just man up to what u have done. Plain and simple.

    Well I shouldn’t be surprised cause the whole religion gag was invented for the weak minded anyway. I guess it comes full circle.

    Good luck with that.

    BWAHAHAHAHAH

    Y AM I UP???

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  350. CANEZ 1 absolutely agree with that one 100%.

    Just like Howard Stern says it is easier to make decisions by saying “GOD SAYS” or “THE BIBLE SAYS” then to actually just make a decision on your own and live with it good or bad.

    Did you see Colbert on Thursday night?

  351. CC LOL it drives me nuts.

    I’ll act like a total scumbag time and time again but no worries, “god” will forgive.me.

    Just silly.

    I don’t watch colbert but hear good things about him.

    I try to stay away from news and politics as much as I can. It’s a circus.

    I’m only interested in financial news and anything that effects it.

    What did he say?

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  352. Now I am off to run 5miles.

    Have a great day my canes’ friends!!!!

    Is that kid really a straight bum?

  356. ……If you can’t understand it……Damn it, I guess.

  357. when i was small i saw a football game on tv and loved the uniforms & name of one of the teams – the “green bay packers”.

    they became my team for a long time, including several years after the dolphins finally put up a franchise.

    luckily, they were also good during most of those years.

    but the dolphins wound up stealing my hearts; green bay and the rest of the teams now mean nothing to me.

    good luck to the packers tomorrow, but i won’t be watching or caring a whole lot.

  358. anything to talk about today?

    SailorCane says:

    taxes!!!

  360. Since we are already talking about QBs next year, I started looking at the depth chart and what we will need overall:

    After adding this year’s class AS IS (I did not include Ayles since he only has one year of eligibility) and removing next year’s seniors we will have 24 schollies (though if we still bring in extra players such as Savage this number will decrease). This also does not take into account guys leaving early which will be a distinct possibility IMO (B. Wash and Vernon come to mind). And of course transfers and position changes were not included.

    Based on this we will need the following:

    QB= 2
    RB = 2
    FB = 1
    WR = 3-4
    TE = 2
    OL = 4
    DL = 3 (needing at least 2 DT)
    LB = 2-3
    DB = 4 (needing 3 Safeties)

  361. Shwarm on the grind for ’12 already!!!

    I like it!!

    Speaking of taxes!! I have to get that shiz done this weekend. Thanks for the reminder!!!

    Its always nice when their is an accountant in the family :)

    Six – it’s like this: “Weis offered, so he must be good”

    He’ll learn. I doubt Goldie signed off on that. Either way, offers are worth nothing. If the guy balls out, keep the offer. If not, pull it. I’m guessing that might be the thinking.

    Either way, nothing worse than parents micromanaging their kids athletic careers. Those turn out to be the big babys. Parents on the phone to the coach night and day: “why isn’t junior starting. You’re not treating biff fairly”

    Bennie, no relation to Tony Pike I have been told.

    Zeke plays for Dixie Heights in N.KY where I live.

    His dad played for GA Tech and the Buffalo Bills

  371. Bennie,

    I believe the Pike dude is outta KY…..which obviously a border to the city of Cincinnati…..which is obviously where Tony Pike played, so who knows?

  372. Anyone know the latest on Duron Carter?

  373. My bust, Dave…….

    Crow reminds me of Marve, a little. Good Marve, anyways.

  374. Canez1 & Hurri – I’d take Robert Marve in a wheelchair out on the field over Gray Crow all day …… I hope that tells you something. I’m not lying about this kid

    He’s got the prototypical QB build that people get wood over – 6’4 220 or whatever

    A little over 1,300 yards passing with 7 TDs and 8 INTs – in 13 games

    7 TDs in 13 games with 8 INTs

    One of the many Countryside games I went to, they played Tarpon Springs and lost – Gray Crow threw for 22 yards the entire game

    Countryside did like to run the ball, they had one guy rush for 1,269 yards with 16 TDs and also had another guy run for 742 yards with 17 TDs

    I already gave the listings of the size of their OLine – mammoth

    So then why offer this kid if you see what his passing stats are – even if you want to say he’s on a running heavy team? With a OLine like he had, Crow had all the time in the world to throw the ball .. and he did .. more to the other team than to his own

    If anyone has a chance to come up to USF for the 7-on-7 Badger Tournament, I’ll be willing to bet that Countryside will have a team there and Crow will be the QB … they had a team with Crow this past year in their USF Sling N Shoot – there were more people salivating over the big QB from Plant City who looks like Xavier Lee than Gray Crow. Skip Holtz was following that kid around all day … Crow? not so much at all. Not even the members of the USF Staff that were there paid him any attention

  375. Hurri – Marve at the same time in high school that Crow is now … Marve was 6’0 (in cleats) 185 lbs, while Crow is about 3.5 inches taller and 35 lbs bigger – but Marve could sling the ball around the yard, kid had a cannon and could scramble … everyone knows about all the state records he broke, which belonged to Tim Tebow (most single season completions, single season TDs, etc.)

    Marve still to this day isn’t as big as Crow is – and he’s been in college 3 years now, while Crow is going to be a Senior in high school this upcoming year

    I’m thinking along the lines of Crow = Matt Perrelli .. haha, man, that’s cold of me but f*ckit, that’s what I’ve seen. Maybe a light switch turns on for this kid this next year

  376. Marve in a wheelchair > Gray Crow this past year

    Alright, I’m done baggin on the performance of the kid. Who Necks

    In fact, more players from the 2006 ESPNU 150 have transferred, been dismissed or failed to make their grades (36) than have been drafted in 2009 and 2010 (29)

  378. Six,

    Is he a knuckle-head too? If he’s at least got work ethic, maybe we can coach em’ up. He does appear on film to have the tools. Does he have a gun? I couldn’t really get a read on his velocity, on YouTube Mobile.

    probably the fault of the receivers

  380. avatar
    pb(EOTHROH10) says:

    The fact he’s opted to sign with the Gators was a bit surprising. Florida already signed Oviedo’s Jeff Driskel, rated by numerous recruiting services as the number one quarterback in the country. The Gators signed three Dwyer players last season – tight end Gerald Christian, receiver Robert Clark and safety Matt Elam. Dwyer coach Jack Daniels is a Florida grad.
    “I’m not saying he can’t compete and do well at Florida, but Jeff Driskel is going to be the man there,” ESPN recruiting analyst Corey Long said.
    “The kid had two chances to play in my opinion – at Miami or Wisconsin.”

  381. Hurri – he’s got a little above average arm, but nothing that makes you really take notice of it like the mini-howitzer that Stephen Morris has. He’s 6’3 or 6’4 220lbs so he better have one if he’s that size and plays QB

    The kid looks like he’s a hard worker from what I’ve seen at the 7-on-7s and during the season – but it just seems like he didn’t get it last year. Real rah-rah type of guy. I dunno how that is, when he’s that size, he has that huge OLine, it’s not like they couldn’t pass the ball b/c teams made sure to pay attention to their running back – and WRs were running open for Countryside b/c of that during passing plays …… one instance in particular stood out for me with Gray, in a playoff game against Tampa Bay Tech. He cost his team yardage on a stupid personal foul against him – it was either after he got sacked or taken down after a failed pass attempt, he was on the ground with the Tech kid .. Gray then rolls on top of him and head butts him, then drags his body over the kid as he’s getting up while the Tech kid is still laying on the ground. It was just a dumb moment for Gray, emotions probably just got the best of him – but man, that was just dumb. I’m all for playing with fire and all that – I don’t mind at all when a QB gets up in the face of a DLineman or LB and returns the smack talk, then goes out and drives the ball right down the field for a score and laughs at the DLineman or LB – I love that sh*t. …… but at least back the sh*t up and don’t head butt the guy, then drag your chest and nuts on the other guys face as you’re getting up when it’s right in front of the ref and it’s going to cost your team field position

    I just think there have to be better options out there – but like I said, hopefully the light switch goes on for this kid this year if the Canes offered him and he goes and tears it up

    I hope this kid makes me look like an ass and proves me wrong while he turns out to be Andrew Luck part 2

  382. That one ball that Morris threw to TB3, at GT, was DE-MATERIALIZING on its way there.
    It was Elway-esq, and prime John Elway had the best arm I’ve ever seen.

  383. slow day.

    hey six – knowing “a groin is a groin” . . . you think gay crow might’ve been having a problem in that area?

  384. i’ll be damned:

    Hurricanes defeat VIrginia in OT, 70-68!
    Sixth-straight game down to final possession.

  385. time for my beauty rest.

  386. Check out the podcast with Me and Herc from UFR Sports about the Canes Signing Day

    http://ufrsports.com/review/index.php/2011/02/05/hurricane-alley-national-signing-day/

  387. Speaking of the Crow family … his older brother LD is transferring … again

    Went to Stanford, never saw the field for 2 years – transferred to UCF

    Sat out a year at UCF b/c of the transfer … then couldn’t beat out Frosh Jeffrey Godfrey when he was a RSJunior

    Now, he’s transferring again – to a Division 2 program

    Sounds like it runs in the family b/c the Crow family took Gray and moved him to Ocala during his Soph year b/c he wasn’t the starting QB and he started at the school in Ocala .. then he moved back to Clearwater to play his Junior year
