Highly regarded freshman recruit transferring away from UF, according to recruit's father

GAINESVILLE -- Freshman strong safety Jordan Haden is transferring from Florida, according to his father, Joe Haden Sr.

In a text message on Monday morning, Haden told the Miami Herald that "Haden will be transferring." Florida has not granted the transfer yet, according to Haden Sr., but he said he and his son "are working on that today."

Haden was a highly regarded piece of UF's 2011 recruiting class and rated a four-star prospect by Rivals.com. He's also the brother of former UF All-American Joe Haden.

"When asked why his son is transferring, Haden Sr. said, "No hard feelings. Florida is a great program and we love them. It just wasn't the best fit for Jordan."

Wowzers. Something unspoken is at play here. Very early for him to be transferring. Probably a case of being Joe's bro and expecting a little too much. Come to Florida and be prepared to compete for a position, bottom line.

Wonder how this will affect Josh Haden?

Just the beginning of the downfall for the gators. Transfers, going to jail, this is the look for the program in the future. How many heart issues for Meyer this year after the losses mount.

Billybob you are an idiot. Transfers happen constantly at every program, and say nothing of the "health" of the team. Especially, when talking about freshmen.

Heck, even Percy Harvin wanted to transfer his freshmen year at Florida.

The dude couldn't hang.

So what happened when all the white QBs trasnferred from UM?

@Billybob54 ur a dumb@ss. But ur a disgruntled Canes fan. All Canes fans do these days is trash the Gators. And we love it.

As for Haden, I wonder if he underestimated the talent level he would see here in Florida. Maybe he thought things would be easier based upon Joe's time as a Gator?

Lived in Maryland, and coached youth football there. In general, the talent in Florida exceeds that seen in MD.

He probably thought he would just walk in and start this year, just because his last name is Haden.If he did think that, then he was arrogant and saddly mistaken.
Hopefully, this doesn't deter Josh from coming to UF.

Guys, get your sick troll off the Canes boards!

We have a new beat writer, and before we can even start discussing football, he is on there ranting and raving yet again.

Give him a freaking day to settle in at least!

Any word as to the location Haden will be moving to?

Is he headed to Miami? If not why would he text to a Miami paper about transferring?

Why would he text the Miami paper? Good question. It has nothing to do with the Canes. It's because the Miami Herald is dedicated to covering the Florida Gators, one of the best football programs in the country. The Gators have a very large following in South Florida and The Herald moved a reporter to Gainesville to cover the team three years ago. That reporter would be me.

Haden's UM bound....coming in with Latwan. Kid realized Canes are set for another dynasty run and he wanted to be part of it. Who would want to play in that relic Benny Hill stadium and do some retarded clap when you can sport the U on your helmet, ball in a PRO stadium with world class replay boards, and chill on SoBe on weekends with a bodyguard like Seantrel. It's sick, the luxury of wealth the Canes have.

This just in: Cane season tix slashed yet again! $99? $89? No $79! And yes, we take WIC, Food Stamps, and/or your Clunker if you missed the Cash for Clunkers program.

Get them while they last!

Sounds like Story saved the day. He should get a medal of honor or civic key or something.

Didn't you guys set the standard with the 69 violations in 1982?

No, that number has been far exceeded by the current Turd team.


University of Miami track signee Latwan Anderson, one of the most coveted college football recruits in the nation, has been cleared by the NCAA and is expected to arrive in Coral Gables this week.

Latwan today....

No, that number has been far exceeded by the current Turd team.

But wasn't yours seminal?

C'mon U-dee, where's the rest of MY weed?

..I know, I know, the "s" word is a complicated word. I suggest dictionary.com or for those adroit in journalistic matters -- the thesaurus function in Word.

We have tried all other options to get him to stop, so this is the last resort. Much like Osama Bin Laden, we tried appeasement, policing, reporting, and responding on our own turf. Now, we must take the battle to his turf, just as we attacked Afghanistan. You, by supporting and cheering on his efforts, are the Taliban, and deserve whatever comes your way. I tried to get a truce through, where both sides would leave the other alone. He chose to ignore it, and actually stepped up his attacks.

I could care less about the Gators, and do not normally post here. But it seems that the only option left is to give to him exactly what he gives to us.

Perhaps in the end, the moderators of the blogs will implement the same protection that Manny has done for the Herald, the only person to so far stop his racist diatribes.

You claim that he got under our skin, and that we are crying about it. Nah, we are fighting back, not sitting on the sidelines dropping gallons of tears. That is the Gator way, as everyone saw in the Alabama game. Call it what you want, though, this is justifiable retaliation upon supporters of a terrorist. you were given the option to denounce his actions, but you instead cheer it on. I guess now it is time for us to do a little payback.

You choose not to get off our blogs, so we bring the fight to your home turf. You were asked to back off, now it is time for payback.

It's called freedom of the press brother.

You don't need permission to make a jackwagon out of yourself here. Just do it. Your stuff is friggin' funny -- especially the errant historical references and the homophobic references. Who cares about this mythical "poster" "terrorizing" your blog?!

Guess we're the bigger group, no one is chasing you away.

So keep chirpin' like the napolean you are. Passes the time until kick-off. The only one you are embarrasing is Cane nation and all your K-12 teachers (assuming you gradu-ma-ated from high school).

U.S News & World Report put out their annual ranking of colleges. In the top fifty there were 7 ACC schools ranked including Miami at # 47. Not a single sec school made the top fifty including uf that checked in at # 53.

sorry buddy Cane fan here in Gainesville, three unsolved murders of residents at HOME 2 are minors. This year so far, One a santa Fe student, gainesville aint what it used to be

Whoa! I knew the Pat Forde article was out there (heard about it on Colin Cowherd's show), but haven't actually read it until now. Pretty hard to fathom the domination until all the data is put down in print! Guess that's why everyone's SOS in the conference is so good.

Anybody know what college Emmitt Smith went 2??
He didnt mention it in his 24 minute HOF speech..
NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF HOF SPEECHES HAS SOME1 FORGOT HIS ALMA MATER...
WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT..

C'mon angry Cane guy. Someone here is really trying hard to be lively and entertaining -- can't you bring something other than the same old tired stuff? The homophobe stuff and tired ES stuff is just that...tired.

I like the Pinhead/Hellraiser reference myself. That movie still scares the doody out of me!

Miami President Donna Shalala said she is not celebrating passing UF. Rather, she said, the rankings show that the state has to provide more resources to its public universities.

“I think it’s a wake-up call for the people of Florida to start investing in the University of Florida and all of the state universities,” she said.The rankings mark Miami’s best showing ever, the first time that it has passed UF and the first time since 2002 that UF dropped out of the top 50.

UF spokesman Steve Orlando also attributed the drop to state funding cuts, saying that UF has basically stayed the same while private universities have pulled ahead.

“Given the fact that we’ve lost $150 million in state funding in the past three years, I think it’s pretty amazing that we’ve done as well as we have,” he said.

Definitely not the UF Independent Athletic Association which is self-sufficient and NOT dependent on the SUS for its funding.

Yeah the same IAA that funds scholarships from its surplus every year.

Hey Canes, congrats on finishing 40-something, your highest showing in anything the past decade! With your new found mojo, perhaps you can build an on-campus stadium like us!

OPEN CALL TO THE ACC:

We are testing our latest offering to replace WSOP, it's called World Series of Rubik's Cube. Tryouts are every Saturday this fall starting September 4th.

We saw the latest rankings in US News and since you guys suck at football and don't fill your (small) stadiums on game day you guys are PERFECT for the part.

The university of florida is a higher institute of LEARNING first that happens to field a football team. Without academics you have no football team. Tax payers are not bailing you out.

This just in: Donna Shalala was detained in Israel in June for her association with nefarious, dangerous, malcontents. President Obama had to personally phone Masad to let them know she was actually the president of UM and she had no choice but to associate with these rogues.

Thanks Obama!

Obama makes calls and Bush gives her the presidential Metal of Freedom. Thats called friends in high places and respect. The only person makeing calls for bernie is huntley to get him out of trouble. What kind of dooshbag hits another persons car and flees the scene?

Don't forget us too! Maybe someday UM will be in big-boy land with us and everybody else!

But the fact still remains.....

Facts still remain Miami's 83' one point win over Nebraska title is tainted along with the mickey mouse split title. We'll give you credit for 3 1/2 titles. You aren't as good as you think.

Respect is when your stadium gets knocked down and they make you drive an hour to watch a game.

Utah was undefeated with 18 first place votes in one of your tainted titles so
we give you credit for 2 1/2 titles
