    PMZ...take the Golden Cane info FWIW...which is not much...they have some ears inside 'the building' but a lot of what they want is not reasonable and more a wish list than a real possibility...

    My worry with Martinez is that most UGA fans are ready to run him out of town. It is almost exactly like the situation with Nix at GT. That makes me very uneasy given what happened with Nix.

    Martinez has been in coaching since 94 and a DC since 05, and had success until this year when his D was crushed by injuries...Nix was a 2nd year failure as an OC and had some token positions since 96 or so but was not really involved at staff level until 01.....WM has at least had some success...........but yes it is not the older Bill young type guy...

    I have good sources and not so good ones. The one on Ray Ray I cannot confirm, But say its just a rumor. We are all hearing crazy rumors at this point and its hard to tell whats true and whats not. I would not put much into the Ray Ray thing. I would be much more worried about Dye making grades. Debose is solid to UF

    I have heard the same thing on Dye...and I can confirm in PM the source...it is good....actually it is 50-50 on grades with Dye....I personally do not see him as a great player anyway. I also think with no surce that Debose is solid UF....but I also do feel comfortable saying that the kids are still working him.

    True...TRUE...TRUE..on the rumors stuff....I have some decent contacts everywhere form inside the U to deep in the Athletic office at UF to the NCAA and many more ........... and the best most consistently correct "sources" are the kids themselves. If you know a kid, their family, someone close to the family or have someone in the know that you trust; that generally is the best most accurate info. I hate to put anything out there that I hear because there is so many "rumors" out there...and many many planted rumors, that people want you to repeat....you have to really really trust the information you are getting to repeat it as gospel...........

    The EASY part is proving rumors inaccurate....because there is so much garbage out there that if you have not heard it...it probably is false.....that is why I was curious on the Ray-Ray issue...I had not even heard a whisper of that..................

    Skeet what are your sources on this? Young was hardly involved in the recruiting if at all.

    Wow - I can't believe how tight lipped they are being about this.

    Not McNulty, not Whipple and the article also says it won't be Chuck Long.:confused:

    Dub....Skeet qualified it as being a secondary source so to speak....I cannot share with you who my source is but I will say it is deep and I doubt the Ray Ray information to be accurate....and Skeet qualified it as such.

    I do not read as many articles on the Canes as you guys, But I ASSUMED (Which is dangerous and something I should not ever do) that the DC would be involved in recruiting. Sorry

    No problem Skeet...one of the names for DC that I am aware of from the inside is a very good recruiter....very good...but goes against what Shannon originally said he wanted in a DC......check your PM's....

    Have to wonder if its Todd Monken, who was LSU's passing game coordinator and WR coach. I would think they're still trying to go after Mike Shula as well. The guy that I think they could really be looking at if they haven't already is Ken Zampese. He was at the U in '96-'97.

    Zampese is a name I have heard from public sources...getting good information from good sources on this one is much harder than anything prior....it is like trying to eat soup with a fork....

    Down to 36º on my outside thermometer this morning here in Westchester (west of Coral Gables for those not familiar with So Fla).

    I took the dog (my avatar) out at 6:45 am and of course he loves it....big smile on his face, and I am standing there shivering :lol:

    2009 Hurricanes Baseball schedule

    Opening day is Feb 20th at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field againt the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers....7pm 1st pitch.

    http://hurricanesports.cstv.com/sports/m-basebl/spec-rel/121208aaa.html

    Highlights of the home & away schedule......

    March 27, 28 and 29 against Georgia Tech, followed the next week by the visit of the Florida State Seminoles (and remember how last years regular season finale in Tally ended.....bad bad blood) on April 3, 4 and 5. Followed the next week on the road at Clemson April 10, 11 and 12.

    Of course we travel to visit those Florida Gators February 27, 28 and March 1st. On the road another tough series will be to Chapel Hill on April 17, 18 and 19 to play North Carolina, which as of late has become quite a thorn in the side of the Hurricanes.

    Buckeye King should also make note that Ohio St plays in Coral Gables on March 24th against the Canes.

    I hope some of you guys make an effort to join us this year at the ball park to watch these great athletes we have on the Hurricanes squad.

    Lots of names that should be Canes!

    I was told the correct list of visitors for this weekend are: QB A.J. Highsmith (Fort Bend, Tx.), OL Cory White (Fleming Island, Fla.), OL Malcolm Bunche (Newark, Del.), OL Marcus Hall (Cleveland, Oh.), OL Jared Wheeler (Plantation American Heritage), DE Shayon Green (Tift County, Ga.), LB Sam Barrington (Jacksonville Parker) and CB Kayvon Webster (Monsingor Pace).

    The visitors for the weekend of Jan. 30 are expected to be OL Andrew Tiller (Nassau CC, NJ), OL Peter White (Washington D.C., St. John’s College Prep), TE Sheldon Richardson (St. Louis, Mo.), CB Jamal Reid (Mayo Lafeyette), DE Dyron Dye (Sanford Seminole), DB Ray Ray Armstrong (Sanford Seminole) and DB Prince Kent (Norcross, Ga.). Greg Reid will join them if he decides to switch his visit (we could find out as early as tonight). Another possible surprise visitor could include former commitment and tight end Billy Sanders, who switched his commitment to UCLA but I'm told is now having second thoughts and UM is under the impression he will visit that weekend.

    Shannon was out west yesterday FWIW

    I'm told that the sticking point with McNulty is wanting to bring his own OL coach

    Yeah this has been confirmed but no name has leaked yet.

    Players on the team know as well.

    I'm sure a name will leak out soon.

    Well - I'll say this - Ferman has been very quiet on this and has shied away from naming names until today.

    And he mentioned a now former Eagles coach.:tongue2:

    I wont name names either.

    TIFWIW -

    People are saying that the hold up in the announcement is red tape. UM and NCAA administrative stuff such as background checks, etc.

    I hope these people are right.

    Lets hope so....Mark Whipple will be one great find for us ! Marve is probably eating his shorts now at hearing this ! You should have stayed and competed, and not run off like a little baby.

    Decision and announcement expected to come on Monday.

    I really hope we land this guy. My concern is that if Cowher gets the itch to coach again - he may come calling. And that could be as early as next year.

    Hopefully Whipple comes and we can convince Bryce Brown on turning him into our own little version of Brian Westbrook. He has the tools.

    Its pretty amazing he wanted to be near daddy, and now he might end up at Penn St ? That just blows the Marve's "cancer" crybaby act all up. I hope people remember that.

    As you said earlier - the kid didnt want to compete. That's unheard of at a D-1 school. Nothing is handed to you. Once his boyfriend Nix got the axe - his departure was inevitable.
