Cards-Ravens Super Bowl would help Canes

Playoffs? NFL playoffs at Eye On The U? Normally, I wouldn't bother bringing them up in this blog. But these days -- with recruiting really heating up -- you never know what can help and hurt. And my guess is you probably won't find a bigger Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens fan this coming week than UM coach Randy Shannon.

Edgerrin_jamesWhile Philadelphia and Pittsburgh don't have any UM players on their teams, the Cards and Ravens have seven former Canes between them. You know who they are: running backs Edgerrin James (Arizona) and Willis McGahee (Baltimore), safeties Antrel Rolle (Arizona) and Ed Reed (Baltimore), defensive lineman Calais Campbell (Arizona) and linebackers Tavares Gooden (Baltimore) and Ray Lewis (Baltimore). But if there was ever a real reason for Canes Nation to root for an Arizona-Baltimore Super Bowl in Tampa Feb. 1, it's recruiting.

While recruits obviously know all about Miami's history (the five rings and the countless first round picks) Ray_lewishaving something fresh and as big as the Super Bowl to talk about in those living room and in-home visits with mom and dad could prove quite valuable to Shannon. Let's not forget all the times those former Canes could throw up a U during Super Bowl week and on media day. Writers are sure to jump on that angle. In the end, that's some nice, very visible free advertising for the Canes. And, at the perfect time for Shannon, who is coming off a mediocre 7-6 season.

> After finally getting back home from the snowy Boston Sunday night, I got a chance to have a long conversation with one of my guys at The U who told me the NFL -- and helping players reach it -- is what Shannon has been selling hard to recruits over the last couple of weeks. And, my source told me, that's why Shannon is intent on bringing in an offensive coordinator who will run a pro style offense. "Whoever thinks coach Shannon wants a conservative offense is wrong," he said. "He wants an offense that's going put up points and help guys get to the next level. That's who we are. We've always been about winning and getting guys to the pros. Ask Reggie Wayne, Andre Johnson and all those guys how much it helped to play a pro style. It got them ready."

> As for the offensive coordinator search, I was told there is now some level of urgency on the coaching staff's part (not athletic director Kirby Hocutt) to fill the spot in the next few weeks. The reason: UM wants to be able to show recruits like Bryce Brown (a soft commitment) what type of offense the team will run. UM isn't scared it'll lose Brown (who is supposed to visit either Jan. 23 or 30) but the Canes want to ensure him and other potential recruits the offense will be in good hands. Brown, the nation's No. 1 running back, visited Kansas State over the weekend and told The Manhattan Mercury he's opened up conversation with Tennessee.

> By the way, I've also been told nobody has officially been interviewed in person for the OC job, but several candidates have been contacted over the phone. Our Barry Jackson reported Sunday Mike Shula was one of the ones to decline interest when asked. Shannon, who is not at the College Football Coaches Association meetings in Nashville this week (the majority of his staff is), will likely begin formal interviews this week. Shannon had been on the road doing in-home visits with recruits over the past week -- including making a stop at the home of receiver Rueben Randle, Rivals.com's No. 1 pass-catcher. Randle has told several publications he is now considering Miami again because the Canes got rid of Patrick Nix.

Anthony, good point.

USC actually runs the Canes Pro Style Offense.

Just a little history - Pete Carroll asked Jimmy Johnson if he (JJ) would contact Butch to see if he (PC) could attend an "invitation only" offensive seminar given at UM.

This was just after Carroll had been hired by USC. Carroll was obviously impressed.

Carroll brought with him his O-Line coach Golden Patrick Ruel. Ruel and Carroll met as assistant coaches at Arkansas many yrs before.
Ruel pushed Carroll, upon his hire, to contact JJ, and they were ultimately invited before the '99 season and again in '00.

Ruel played O-Line for Gables High ('66ish) and UM ('70ish) give or take a yr.

And that's why it is so familiar when you watch USC. Fortunately for them they have the depth we need. Especially at O-Line (rotate 15 men/gm) and D-Line (rotate 18 men/gm).

Again Anthony, good point.

The U will be back. And Shannon will be leading the troops. And to 407, I did make mistake with the record before Meyer came, I believe 9-3 was his record, but that 7-5 team was more talented than the team Shannon inherited. Leak was a sophmore who I believe threw for over 3000 yards and 29 td's. I dont think Kyle Wright ever had numbers like that. That team had always showed potential but was young.

You keep comparing UF's young talent with ours but as someone mention they had the veterans at vital positions. Tebow at qb, Harvin and Murphy at Wr. My main point is that Leak, Wynn, Caldwell and Baker were better veterans than Wright, Charlie Jones, Legget and Moore. And DVD was never a good shut down corner. He performed this year just like last year. UNC killed him and Carlos Armour.

Go Canes!!!!!!!

Anthony, just so U know - 407 is a gator in disguise. So, don't get to caught up in his disinformation.

Jaime worte:

Gator- Just like the last bible banger who won a NC (Danny Wuerffel). Tebone-the pastor will be back... and what was of UF between 1997 and 2006?

........

Don't be retarded by mixing religion with sports. It's like I would make fun of the fact that you have a girl's name and say that the Hurricanes are the best college team in the same sentence. One has nothing to do with the other. Keep your religous bigotry to yourself.

I just want to say I am a true canes fan and I want reiterate on what I said earlier. I hope the canes shock me and win a NC next year or in 2010. But I honestly don't see Jacory Harris and company being those guys. I see these current freshmen as those senior leaders for the next crop of players, kinda like how it was back in 98/99/00 with Edgerrin James, Reggie Wayne, and Santana Moss.

You need depth to win championships. Depth takes time. One recruiting class will not cut it. You need 3-4 SOLID classes, maybe more. Thats why I say 2011 the earliest. I'd be surprised if they did it in 2010.

407: U do realize the head coach chooses who he wants to attend his program not DC Randy do u honestly think we could have did anything last year at best we were like a 7-6 type of team with veterans you are rite UF has young talent on their D but they gain the expierence ad leadership on offense a tad bit on d with a tebow harvin lewis murphy brandon spikes give me a person on that 2007 team that could have won a heisman it was writing on the wall that randy didn't have talent it was well documented too i mean if U are a true cane fan you would give this man some time and see what he can do the man can't turn water into wine (like mike teel from rutgers how he struggled then bounced back carson palmer struggled and bounced back notice i'am naming individual players not a team and we had a team that mostly consisit of water) we were in everygame except one i can't predict the future but we are stepping in the rite direction and for that be optimistic of our future don't give up on us because we are down we will bounce back if i like shannon but i am a hurricane fan that is what some of yall have forgotstop judging the U on situation a coach or a player this is a family and fam stick together through thick and thin but fake fans tend to forget that because we haven't been in a BCS in a while just chill if you are that disgusted be easy and be a UF fan why cry over spilled milk

Posted by: pay attention to the U | January 09, 2009 at 11:39 PM

that was a post i wrote a couple of days ago and all i have to say is if you are a so called true hurricane fan then why in one of your earlier posts you exclude yourself from the rest of the miami fan base " THE CANES FAN DESERVERS WHATS COMING TO THEM THIS SEASON FOR BLINDLY SUPPORTING THEIR INEPT COACH" yes that sounds to me you excluded yourself from the bunch what Randy supporters are trying to tell u is give the main time i don't have to explain myself why just look up at my post above give the main another year or 2 then evaluate till then either b A CANE OR HOP OFF AND JUMP ON UF BANDWAGGON I HEARD THEY ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD RIDERS IF U KNO WHAT I MEAN

3 is NOT FIVE 5......gayturds....go back to...canesville...... lol

Anthony, I agree partly with Ur premise. And my push for depth is in the Line of Scrimmage.

All game are ultimately won at the Line of Scrimmage. OL and DL.

Where I diverge from your argument is in the "Jacory and company not being those guy's to win a NC. First off, winning a national champion isn't all that easy. So, the odds are against it. But, by 2011, these guy's can do it.

We at THE U have a great crop of talent, here in South FL, to choose from every yr. and if sought (unlike Coker) they will always lighten those odds for THE U.

That brings me to Jacory (JH) and company.

1st JH:

When you project JH's stats, 1/3 of the snaps last season - to a full time 100% of the stats, he's looking really good.

They work out to:

35 TD's
18INT's
3000+ YRD's

Stats like these will have a very beneficial effect on the rest of the offense. The running game, which wasn't all that bad, would have really opened up.

This would lead to longer more time consuming drives. Which leads to more points and a rested defense.

Which leads to more wins and a "muted freshman fade" at the end of last season.

Because of a lack of depth all the way around primarily at QB. We didn't have the luxury we will have next season.

Starting a single QB with serious game experience and having 2 QB's with a full season of practice under their belt.

This a normal situation at any level.
In fact I'll argue this is a little bit better, because of the game experience JH has under his belt.

He started 2 games, basically, with no back up to lean on and when he replaced RM in the other 11 games - they weren't mop up situations.

How many 95+ yrd drives for winning TD's did JH have - 2, right.

Well, this is a lot of conjecture, I agree. But, it does gives me some confidence in next yr.

JH's focus next yr may have to be in his "blitz killing passes" to his stable of great WR's.

I see the OL as, perhaps, the weak spot next yr. But with these "blitz killing passes", JH and his quality WR's, can help out the OL and this will lead to that killer run game. And we know what that means.

Just some things to think about regarding offense.

Defense, well teach them to tackle and work hard on fundamentals.

Also, watch a couple of these freshmen step up in the secondary. Remember, Vaughn Telleque is healthy and ready to go. Stolen out from underneath of USC, this kid will be another in along line great safeties a THE U.

Well, now let's see who our new OC is going to be and get on with it.

"Jacory Harris and company" have proven that they can win a national championship in high school. JH and company played in one of the toughest states and for one game they had to go on the road in a hostile environment in Texas and beat a 3-time state champion there on national TV. JH and company proved they can win a national championship in high school and they will do the same in college, just like the Pouncy twins, Amad Black, Rainey and company did at Lakeland and then in college.

Eh. I'm a big RS fan, but I can't argue with Tom Dienhart too much. On a superficial level who wouldn't want to be the coach of the national champs? And who *would* want to be associated with that 2 min drill debacle?

The program is coming up, but there are going to be bumps along the way. RS is a good leader and can lead this team to a championship, he just has to polish up on gameday coaching. Once we get a veteran OC on board that RS can comfortably rely on, he'll be able to focus solely on gameday skills. Give it time...

If RS is Ron Zook is Tommy Tubberville Urban Myer? We gotta give Shannon 3-4 yrs before we judge. This year we gotta have a top 25 team. I honestly think RS can do it but the heat is on this year.

yeah but any decent human being didn't have to put another man on the spot, the guy don't even know Shannon, so does myself and any other fools out there that critizes Shannon as a person!!!! this is what's wrong with the media, they'll scapegoat anyone to make profit out of it and other people gets the bad end of the whole situation, i don't mind dienhart licking meyers balls, that's his business, but doing another person wrong is just low! i think you can also understand that ATXcane

Man, Canes fans are tough. Well, I guess I might conclude the same thing about other teams' fans if I stumbled onto their team's blog, but oh well.

I remember when we were sitting pretty at 7-3. Our three losses had come to (1) UF where everyone acknowledged we were right there through three quarter, (2) UNC where we had it, but let it slip away, and (3) FSU where we pulled every trick in the playbook to come back and just came up a little short. We were the talk of the town. ESPN talked about the baby canes, the number of freshmen scoring touchdowns, and RS taking us back to a NC by 2010 (at least according to people like Desmond Howard)...then three losses later and we got fans talking about RS's shortcomings and his supporters being in denial. We got other publications bashing us, local columnits calling us out...I mean WTF. If I would have left the country at the 7-3 mark and went to some far off island with no access to TV/Internet or any source for news, then came back today to take a pulse of the fans, I swear I'd have a heart attack.

At the end of the day, I'm not mad at any of you. I'm pulling for RS, just as I did/will for Coker, Nix, our next OC and who ever else comes in if things don't work out with the current bunch.

I know one thing...at least the people who don't like RS don't have a problem with his recruiting. I'm one of those people who feels the HC is responsible for getting the right personnel while the OC/DC have to come up with the Xs and Os to put our players in position to win games. So as far as I'm concerned, RS is still on schedule.

Go Canes!


407,
You hit the nail on the head! I wish I had written what you did! I continue to post/insist that the coaching staff is the reason the U continues on a downward spiral;
I am not sure what the Canes problems are coaching wise; but to have the amount of talented players they do and to under perform like they do is very odd....look all around the country and tons of other coaches are doing FAR more with less talented players!!!!! Leach, Davis, Gragthorpe, Johnson, Graham, Paterno, Schnellenberger, Cristabol, Levitt, Oleary, Schiano, Beamer, Jagodinski, Bowden, Pelini, Saban, Erickson, Hawkins, Gill, Gundy, Brooks, Grobe, Nutt, Spurrrier, Miles, Solich etc etc etc... the list is endless!

Also 704, you are an absolute moron.. words cannot describe the idiocy you exist in. Please get yourself neutered so you do not reproduce...or else it will be court mandated.

Paging Tommy Tuberville ... Coach Tuberville...

Please report to The U in 2010

Get Lost.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh Period ?


attention wise i b now much dumber

baltimore, washington, carolina, new england, and arizona are the smartest teams in the league. BEASON, MOSS, WILFORK, LEWIS, REED , ROLLE, MORGAN, PORTIS, MCINTOSH, BUCHANON, MCGAHEE, CAMBELL, AND MERRIWEATHER.

Alot of good points from 407 and keyman. This team has had talent, but doesn't seem to have the player development to get us back to the days where we could plug and play players at all positions, and develop the needed leadership roles.

I'll give RS time, but he definitely need's to improve on game day coaching and media skills. RS has been around here long enough to figure that stuff out.

And Nix had to go. I just hope that the U makes a smart choice for OC, as that may make or break some recruitment decisions.

ur third grade english teacher: are you paying me to write a period um no who the f*** cares about periods this isn't an essay its a sports blog go play with yourself

U ALERT ...


U ask why we Gators are here ?


It's Drama ...

Whether it be Tragedy or Comedy ...

U are both.


That's why ... Enjoy the train ride.

I understand that there is reason to bash Shannon, and sometimes I find myself doing it. However, for people to think there is no way he can learn and become a better coach is crazy. Everyone is saying that there was not much imporvement from last year to this year and I think thats way off. Against Boston College and VT last year we had no chance agains those teams. We got killed by Virigina. Killed by Oklahoma. This year we only got killed once. and it was nothing like the Virginia game. We were in every other game and if Randy coached better we could of won some of those. But there was improvement. And I understand other teams were as young as us. The difference was that we were young and did not have depth. Without depth, you can't be good. This is where Randy is trying to improve the team. And all these other teams had seniors that stepped up and did great things while the young guys patched up the holes. With us, our freshmen were carrying us while our seniors were the ones making the mistake. It's very hard to win when your seniors are your worst players on the team

since your using your computer as a sheild something that a caward would do this is a debate you must be a lonely person to come on a debate and crticize me about my punctuation if anything talk about what you disagree about the things at UM and i would gladly debate but since you don't have the balls to say that face to face im done speaking on soft U really are

Shannon wants an OC
Word is that Miami coach Randy Shannon would like a veteran assistant with NFL experience to be his new offensive coordinator. The most viable candidate to fit that mold is former Cleveland Browns quarterback coach Rip Scherer. Former San Diego State coach Chuck Long also is thought to be involved. And keep an eye on Philadelphia Eagles offensive assistant Mark Whipple, a former head coach at Massachusetts - a Football Championship Subdivision (i.e., Division I-AA) school.

a verteran with NFL experience...wouldn't it be bets if the veteran had OC experience (be it in the NFL or elsewhere)in a pro-set. where has Scherer called plays? Long, Whipple, etc.? also, what are these guys track records with developing players. just wondering!

why did prince kent opt to not come early? prom?

Does anyone know who Marcus Hall's new top 3 are as reported by insidetheu.com?

A Scouts,Inc. writer Tom Luginbill released some predictions for 2009 and actually believes the U will win the ACC and play for a major bowl.

God, please allow the U to be set up against UF next year. Please!

Spartans expecting pledge from Dion Sims
Tight end Dion Sims made an official visit to Michigan State over the weekend and is considering a commitment to the Spartans sometime this week, Bucknuts.com's Bill Kurelic reports.

"I liked everything," Sims said. "It was a real good visit. It seemed like I knew everybody and I felt comfortable. I liked the academic side of things. I liked the facilities. I had a nice conversation with Coach (Mark) Dantonio. I met a lot of the people on his staff. It was all good."

Sims said he might visit Miami Jan. 23, but he knows if he waits there is a chance the Spartans could fill up their 2009 recruiting class.

"It's a tough situation," Sims said. "They only have four spots left. They have guys coming in next weekend and if they say yes they can't just turn them down. There is a chance I might commit this week."

Oye' Manuel, the next 3 years will be a journalist's dream.

?


About the OC, It is a huge mistake to hire Rip Scherer. I grew up in Memphis and during a 5 year stretch Rip Scherer was the head coach there at the University of Memphis. That was one of the most boring offenses I have ever seen. Run on 1st down, run on 2nd down, and throw on 3rd down. I am not exaggerating. He brought his system from D II and it didn't work on D I level. Trust me, we don't want RIP. I don't have first hand knowledge of most of the rumored guys but this guy I certainly do.

He commented on the receiver depth chart in Coral Cables, Fla., "I've been thinking about it, and by the time I'm there all their receivers will be juniors."

Additionally, Dunkley named the five schools are currently leading for his services, "It's Florida, Florida State, West Virginia, Georgia and Miami."

Billy Sanders drops the Hurricanes, will stay in the West
Defensive end / tight Billy Sanders has dropped his pledge to Miami-FL and is now committed to the UCLA Bruins, ESPN's Greg Biggins reports.

Sanders, who previously attended Brophy Prep (Phoenix, Ariz.) originally announced for the Hurricanes during his junior season.

He said of the decision, "I want to get into cinematography, so that is one of the reasons I committed. I told Miami what was going on the whole time, so they know. Right now, UCLA likes me as a defensive end, but I like both positions. And I long snap, so whatever gets me in there to play is fine," the Daily Breeze reports.

Randy better find an OC soon. This process can't take this long, unless there are no takers. My gut tells me that me no one wants to come here due to the uncertainity. If we do not improve dramatically, Randy will be axed along with his staff.

Then you will see Tuberville, Jogodzinski, etc to run the show.

Florida will run the table with the patsy schedule. However, mark my words, when Tebow leaves with Harvin, UF will will collapse and have its growing pains.

Enjoy Florida fans...everything comes to an end. Sooner or later.

GO CANES!

Sims can commit all he wants this week, he just needs to make sure to take that Miami trip so we can change his mind!!! He might not even be one of the best 10 players in our class in the end, but given that this is a position of major need loosing him would be bad.

Something I have not seen written in the sports media circles, especially locally (Herald / Sentinel) is the impact and emergence of 2 large Florida schools in FAU and FIU ? What will be the net effect in 5 - 10 years on the progress of U of M rebuilding it's program to compete year in year out with the Top 10 schools.

I read this blog and have great admiration for the passion expressed here. So many Hurricane fans are convinced that Shannon and Miami will return to glory. However, the fact of the matter is that (2) recruiting cycles will have passed and the CANEs have not seen a BCS game.

No doubt that the recruiting classes have been impressive as of late, and this season looks awesome too...but these kids need to be coached and prepared to win games.

FAU has clearly shown steady and consistent growth - 2 bowl wins against Memphis and Central Michigan. Howard has worked with 2 star kids and your seldom sleeper gem that emerges like a Frantz Joseph or Jervonte Jackson.

FIU and Cristobal are really embarking on year 3 and not year 8. The prior handlers under Don Strock left that program in shambles. Mario has clearly shown the ability to recruit at a high level, learn from mistakes - which improves game preparation and has upgraded the coaching staff with a BIG 10 O-coordinator that was the unsung hero (Bill Legg) last season. From 1 win to 5 wins and an onside kick and false start away from 7 wins.

FAU will be constructing their on campus stadium soon, finally cementing their program to their community (students, staff, alumni.

FIU will most likely get private funding from soccer giants FC Barcelona and local billionaire Marcelo Claure once the MLS team in Miami is approved to complete the lower bowl, adding further luxury suites and additonal press boxes and other amentities...

What I see is progress by FIU and FAU. As a grad of a small private school in Central Florida and newbie to the Miami area, I'm curious to know if the University of Miami can replicate the success of the late 80s and early 90s ??

The competition for recruits and a solid fan base may be at the core of the U's mediocrity. With more kids taking a chance to play at least 3 or 4 years at UCF, USF, FAU and FIU, the allure of an average Miami football program and under-achieving ACC conference.... kids can still play high caliber opponents elsewhere.

The haters can blame it all on coach Shannon or poor offensive play calling or Larry Coker for that matter. Notre Dame can go 0 - 12 but still get top rated recruting classes every year... What has that gotten them in the last 8 years ?

The Owls and Golden Panthers are not going anywhere and if they do go somewhere it's to a NEW conference in the next 5 years.

I'll await the Category 5 fury of blind allegiance in your responses...

Dah U got competition,

You hit it on the head. And no one is talking about it because folks really do want to see the Miami program fall. FSU has North Florida, UF has Central and UM has to compete with the likes of FAU, FIU for 3 counties.....and Um being a private school only makes matters worst. Only the state of california has a similar situation, except SC is a public school. But you are correct, recruiting will get a lot tougher for UM.

Tuberville?

Shannon will get a contract extension, if he hasn't already. Probably 2 maybe 3 yrs will be added.

This will be due to his;

- recruiting efforts great classes, re-establishing THE U in the minds of south FL HS Coaches and players and by moving "the fence" into gator territory.

- recruiting a great Defensive Coordinator. And with JJ's help he will bring in "The Guy" needed as Offensive Coordinator. Guaranteed.

With JJ's continued influence, JJ said he's (JJ) hear to stay. He loves The U.

- So, I personally, don't see anything but success in the future. But, if it just doesn't workout then Tuberville will be my top pick.

But even with so-so seasons that's a minimum of 3 years from now.

But for now, after his first classes (as good as they are) and only 2 seasons under his belt with NO Talent or Depth to work with. Most fans are strongly behind him.

So, true canes fans see this and will back Shannon, unless and until, it becomes obvious he can't succeeed.

Canes Future Looking Good!


Recruiting will continue to get easier for UM. This is what has happened in the past and will continue.

From Orlando south the HS coaches are all about the U.

U just saw a bit of the future this yr with 2 of the Sanford 3 coming to the U.

And word has it Jacory is in daily contact with Debose. And he has a better than even chance of flipping him.

So, masked Gay-tors your exposed again.

Yeah, I suppose ...


Even I'm getting tired of myself

Ray Ray Armstrong just got upgraded by Rivals to a 5-star recruit...

If we keep Bryce (the new Rivals #1 overall) and manage to steal Randle (the Rivals #2 overall), we will have 3 5-star recruits and one helluva class.

Any OC that can't score points with that kind of talent is either in a coma or related to Patrick Nix. I like our chances.

One thing I will say though, if we are to have any chance at solidifying Bryce's committment and getting Randle, we're going to need to get a good OC on board, and fast.

Yo.....gotta agree that shannon will get an extension. In fact, I was listening to Jorge Sedano on 790 and he said that sources within the program have told him they are working on the contract and it should be announced shortly. So shannon will be here for a while........unless he totally stinks it up, which should be hard even for him to do if he keeps bringing in exceptional talent.

FYI, USC is a private school.

HOUSTON--WRONG---USC is a PRIVATE school.

Canes will ALWAYS get there dominant share of S. Fl athletes. Always have, always will. It's in the blood of Miami. If you don't believe me, just spend one weekend in Miami during FSU/Miami week and you'll see. It's VERY MUCH Hurricane City and Area.

LOL--tell 'em Cali!
