    About time this made it to the forums.
    Please discuss anything 'Canes related.

    For example:
    10-0 to start the season in basketball. Frank Haith has those guys moving in the right direction. Would be nice to try to run the table before they begin ACC play.
    :up:

    Thoughts??

    It had to happen. The next question is, does ed orgeron come home? Or does Randy run the defense himself for a year? Orgeron is one of the best recruiters in the country, it would be great to have him here running the defense and helping the U recruit.

    How about Football recruiting...
    Rivals in notorius for being anti-Cane to the point of moving guys up or down in rankings depending on where they look like they will commit....yet UM has 10 and potentially 11 of Rivals top 100, if they land Matt Patchen, Patrick Johnson and they already got commit from AB....with more to come.

    Arthur Brown
    Marcus Fortson
    Sean Spence
    Jacory Harris
    Marcus Robinson
    Ramon Buchanan
    Davon Johnson
    Aldarius Johnson...plus plenty more..........

    The tide has turned..........8/9 wins next year and competing for NC in 09.

    Maybe Michael Barrow gets a shot? Although, he has virtually no experience.

    I doubt Orgeron would be very welcome on campus. Barrow just has no experience, although I think he is Shannon's project and a great recruiter. My guess would be that they go outside and get someone like a Brian Van Gorder or M. Stoopes, but that is just my guess...............personally I like the Van Gorder idea.. With the talent the U has brought in last year and is getting this year...you are going to work pretty darn hard to not be successful. The downside is that the expevctation level because of last years class and this years anticipated class is that we are not going to expect BCS bowl games for long ... we are going to want NC's!!!!

    No kidding, I have followed recruiting for 20 plus years, and even though I am a Cane fan, if they get Matt Patchan and Patrick Johnson then this along with USC 2005, Ohio State 2001 and Florida back in 86 or 87 (the Smith/Culpepper/Myles/Dixon/Paulk/McCoy class) will be the best recruiting class I can remember. Way back then you had to actually talk to the Bill Buckhalter's of the world and I was in Florida so I saw a lot of those guys. This class with those Patchan and PJ would be off the charts. Even without those two it is a great class, those two could make it historic.

    I didn't even think about Van Gorder, that is a good thought. Especially with the Falcons coaching staff in shambles, there have already been rumors up here in Atlanta that he wants to get back into the college game. That being said, I think Van Gorder might be a temporary fix and not a long term solution. He would jump ship in a couple of year's when a D-I college comes calling for a head coaching position. I like the Michael Barrow idea, maybe after Van Gorder leaves, but not yet.

    No he is from Wichita Kansas, which is why he is a huge get. Proves Shannon can go get players anywhere. He may not land them but he is also in the running for Perry from Detroit at DL, and a couple DB's from Cali. Problem is the kids he has on the hook are probably better than those kids the exception being Perry. AB has 4.45 speed, amazing WR type body control, power at the point and really no holes in his game. Rivals has a couple 2 star guys, Zach Kane being the biggest Rivals has underrated along with Brandon Marti. Kane is a 215 lb. LB that has been downgraded because he has a huge temper and plays reckless, but man can that 2 star guy play. This class could go down as one for the ages, and even if they shoot an airball on Patchen, PJ and Holton they are still a top 3 class, but I think they get one of them maybe more. Also AB's brother is a top rated RB for 09, so obviously they have the inside track with him also....things they are a changin!!!!

    BTW, AB is the best HS linebacker I have seen since Scot Brantley came out of Ocala.................way back........including Derrick Brooks, Derrick Thomas, and a a bunch of other great HS LB's. Another of the best I saw play in person was Mike D'Andrea...too bad injuries ruined his career at OSU.

    ain't that the truth, that team (Gators)will be awesome when the Lake Brantley kids get into a rotation and get comfortable....Cane basketball is a fluke this year....IMHO

    had to be done . . . the play calling was attrocious on D this year . . . in the Virginia game . . . they looked WORSE than they did against LSU in the Peach Bowl that year . . . and I thought that would be impossible. I know Randy hasn't gotten his players in yet, and I don't blame him, it was bound to happen . . . but not to have the defense prepared in certain games . . . and to have them going the wrong way on plays is IMO coaching and someone needs to take the fall. To be ranked 30th on D, with top 5 talent just isn't acceptable (top 5 talent because they have arguably 2 of the first 10 defensive player to be selected in the draft . . . Phillips/Campbell)

    I am a big UM fan but both those guys are overrated. One encouraging thing is that probably 10 guys that came in last year or are committed now have that type potential on defense.

    I agree totally Omar, and if you were to rank back to back classes these two also could be the best ever. Certainly in the top 3.....

    I disagree but we'll have to wait until they begin ACC play this year.
    A 20 win season is possible and so is a tournament berth. We are already halfway there. :wink2:

    Rivals 4 Star Recruit, and previous FSU commit, Safety CJ Holton has give The U a solid verbal commit. Another very solid recruit. Coach Shannon keeps adding to this class to make it one of the best Miami has ever seen.

    only thing I'll say is be weary about Forston. He's still committed to Da U, but many insiders believe he is seriously considering going to North Carolina same as Patrick Johnson is seriously looking at LSU and USC. Don't flip out but be weary.

    And I don't know about best class ever, but from the classes Coker had given you, and the lack of development from his recruits, yes this is a very good class.

    Oh and one thing I'd add; all the guys Shannon has recruited are high character guys, especially Arthur Brown. He could be one of the greatest players to ever play at Da U

    Fluke huh?

    12-0 right now . . . playing good ball . . . . real good chance of going 14-0 before ACC play . . . I mean 20 wins is VERY possible.

    I agree that we need to see what they are made of in ACC play . . . but they have beaten a few good programs this year. Lemme tell u . . . have u seen the Marlins, Dolphins, Heat, Canes football?

    Many of us are super excited about Canes Bball and even Panthers hockey right now . . . don't take that away from us.

    I have nothing bad to say about Kirby, he just was a bad QB. Hope he does well at Baylor. I thought he only had one year of eligibility left, and he'll use that up sitting out a year. Is he just going there to finish school and be closer to home?

    Patrick Johnson has officially removed UM from his list. He is now down to FSU, UF and LSU.

    All this, per Shandel's blog. Johnson confirmed it.

    That kid had been a verbal forever. Looks like Shannon really muffed that one. Johnson said that he was basically ignored since giving his verbal.

    There is a lot of speculation on the recruiting sites but the most reliable sources indicate that Shannon never really bought into PJ coming, which makes sense since all the other corners are being recruited, and all the love they are giving Brandon Harris. I think PJ brings too many bad traits (and NCAA attention) to any program that he plays for....sure he is talented from what I read, never seen him play.....Jammi German comes to mind. Remember coach's cannot comment on recruits at this point. May be a blessing in disguise....now if Marcus Robinson decommits...that is a big loss....

    1 loss and we're dropped from the poll. From #19 to unranked.

    There's a 9-3 team in the damn top 25. We're 12-1, come on.

    Strength of schedule? What a joke......

    Thank God there's at least a tournament.
