Wall gives UM high marks after visit

The Miami Hurricanes took their best shot at the nation's No. 1 available basketball recruit this weekend. So, did staying on South Beach and hanging out with Jack McClinton this weekend convince future NBA Lottery star point guard John Wall that UM could be the place he spends one year before collecting a multi-million million dollar paycheck at the next level?

John Wall Let's just say the Hurricanes might now really be in the mix. After reading several interviews Wall gave various media outlets in the time since his visit, it appears at the very least Miami made an impression.

“Now they are up there," Wall told Scout.com's Evan Daniels. "I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t really considering them that hard, but I hadn’t taken a visit there and I didn’t know how it was going to be and how the coaches were. After I took the visit it really opened my eyes up."

“I feel like I like the school better than I did before,” he said. “I had Miami on my list but I never really considered them. I didn’t know how it was. I knew it was going to be nice in Florida, but didn’t know how it was school wise and that all the players from different sports get along great.”

“From talking to coach [Frank] Haith, I really got a chance to sit down and talk to him one-on-one for a few hours and we watched some film and I just felt like it was a great place.”

Great place? Sure, we've heard that before. But could UM really be the final destination? That remains to be seen. This week, Wall told several reporters he would cut his list of finalists -- Miami, Kentucky, Florida, Duke, Baylor, N.C. State, Memphis -- down considerably before making a final decision.

"I'm going to sit down this week and really talk it out," Wall told TheDevilsDen.com "I think I will have it down to two or three schools by the end of the week. After that I can concentrate just on those schools and make a decision I'm comfortable with."

What will he be considering?

"There's just a lot to think about, really," Wall told TheDevilsDen.com. "Do I want to leave home for a year? I mean you can't control where you get drafted, so this would be my last year at home. Which coaches do I fit well with? Which teams? How do I like the campus? That kind of thing. There's just a lot to think about."

You got to give coach Frank Haith some credit. At the very least, he not only got the nation's No. 1 available player to visit UM, but make them sound great, too. And believe me, other recruits listen.

That's Utah...

Tell me when the next Florida offensive player will be drafted in the first round?

Y'all are stacked on defense with future first round talent, but I don't know if y'all have any future first round talent because the type of offense Meyer runs.

Here's the bottom line for you this year: ANYTHING LESS THAN A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WILL BE A HUGE FAILURE FOR YOU, THE GATORS, TEABAG, AND TRAILERVILLE.


Thanks

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, u stay tuned

the other shoe is about to drop ...


u be patient and u shall see


Kehoe you cant be that stupid

btw- i'm not kehoe ... i'm Gary Stevens U chicken sheet

Pay attention to the U. ( I am..its BAD),

The kid DID play U. No one in their right mind would argue against that. Are you going to say that Bryce DIDN"T punk U?????? Cane apologist tries to ease the pain by saying, "randy pulled his schollie." PLEEEASE !

He WAS the hot girl in the bar. What U missed in that post was that he was the hot girl to U, not others. Rational fans nationwide realize that the sun doesn't rise and set because of one good RB from Kansas. To UM he was T2 in Orange and Green. DENY IT ! You guys carried on and on and on about how nasty UM would be with this guy in the mix.So as a favor to 13, I'll straighten you out ya a sshat. he was the pretty girl TO UM FOOTBALL NOT OTHERS.


That 13 guy was right. Bryce is a punk and should be viewed as such.

Where did he contradict himself?????

Reposting from April 8 ???? U need a hug and a hobby.

Recruiting analyst Edward Aschoff:

It will be interesting to see how the (UF)staff goes about accepting commitments this summer. There are going to be about 1,000 kids on campus this summer "trying out" for a spot on this team at summer camps. And of course, expect to see one of the finest Friday Night Lights ever in late July. Quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, linebackers, linemen - you name it, they'll be here.


I said it on National Signing Day and I'll say it again: Florida is going to have the greatest recruiting class of all-time in 2010. I haven't seen a year this loaded with talent in a while and Florida is snatching up some of the best athletes out there.

Of Florida's 12 commitments so far, one is rated a five-star prospect (Matt Elam) and nine are four-star recruits, according to Rivals.com. Scout.com has Elam again being the only five-star and rates five of Florida's other commits as four-star prospects. It's not even May, so these rankings are sure to rise as the year goes on.


We all know ( except cane fan) recruiting classes are not the complete answer to winning "ships." ( It really grates cane fan that the school up the street has taken over use of the word 'ship. Mentioning UM and 'ship in the same sentence is a cruel joke, unless of course you are on Medicaid) But when you combine stellar recruiting classes with top notch strength & conditioning as well as leadership, THEN you get 'ships.

This concept eludes cane fan. U are certain that your #11 ESPN class will bring a 'ship in 2010. U are the classic example of cart before the horse cane fan.

Maybe you're BEGINNING To understand that a guy who can't manage timeouts doesn't have the management skills to take you where you desperately want to be. Now here's a polishing cloth. Report to the weight room and clean the rust off all the dumbbells.

lmao "i need a hobby" but you fill the entire blog about about how u hate UM and the fans and post copy and post stuff about sarosota cane. well that was your comeback? if that make you feel like you think that you didn't contradict yourself then ok stick with what you.say don't go off and say the kid makes you sick but you were rooting for him not to come to UM. boy how dumb are U? . that is to funny. like i said i took you to school buddy so like jesse palmer NFL career was im out.

Again, ke-puke is repeating himself with the same old tired stuff.

After 2009, what do you have turd fans???

Answer: Nothing. It's over. UF will be in the rightful place where it always has been: In the toilet bowl, UM's b--ches.

The Curse of Art Kehoe:

do you have any original ideas or posts of your own? Bryce "was the hot girl at the bar?" That has been said so many times and you are so out of material and of such little imagination you use that? Do they teach intelligence, creativity or wit at UF? Or did you skip those classes? IF you are going to rip, which is all you know how to do, at least get new material.

Do they teach you to use that word, and type it in all caps for emphasis, at douchebag school? When you have to use an insulting word, and use caps for emphasis, it reflects the vacuousness of your posts


Yeah U got it right DOUCHEBAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ray Ray is better than Debose U can keep that garbage. I would rather have Benjamin anyway idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!

These dumb honks are clueless on the how and why of Ray Ray and DD and #4. Truly ! The canes wanted #4 by FAR the most. T. Benjamin?? Big Brown has stronger ankles than that kid. Good luck with that beanpole. I think J. Harris needs to share his extra waffles with Travis.

No they did not I know for a FACT that Urban cried when Ray Ray and Dyron threw up the U


ha U guys suck
Screw the GAYTURDS

ITS ALL ABOUT THE U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tebow is retarded and Urban is a pansy

Excellent rhetoric elliott. It is all about the U....whatever that means in 2009. Not much really.

douchebag

suck

gayturds

retarded

pansy

Excellent post Nice job showing your football acumen. I feel very insulted. Good job ... elliott with a small "e".

k-PUKE IS A SORE LOSER WITH LOTS OF RHETORIC BUT NO SUPPORTING FACTS.

FACT: URBAN CRYER WANTED RAY RAY AND D. AND LOST THEM TO THE U.

FACT: UM has has a number 1 and Number 11 recruiting classes, last 2 years and that is better than evern during the Jimmy Johnson, Erickson years when they won 3 NCs and played for another 2.

FACT: UM has made 1 NCAA tournament in basketball, and 1 college world series in the lasst 2 years. UF: ZERO. EACH.

FACT: You cannot catch swine flu if you b--ng a hog. That's why The GAinesville area has had ZERO cases of swine flu thus far.

Clearly you don't understand the difference between being in a "down time" and being a completely eroded program. There IS a difference. U are a badly eroded 2nd tier program now. Regardless of how much you defend what the U USED to be, the glory days are long gone.

Nice post Hialeah Jamie


FACT: UM has has a number 1 and Number 11 recruiting classes...
Too bad every kid now leaves no better than when they came. It doesn't matter where ESPN ranks U fool. U DONT WIN NOW

FACT: UM has made 1 NCAA tournament in basketball.... Very well said Jamie. One brief appearance. UM will NEVER in existence win an NCAA basketball championship. NEVER UF has two clown 2 > 0


FACT: U cannot post comments without losing your mind. That is because Don and I OWN U.

3 drafted palyers after 2 NCs that's a fact ANd it is laughable.

UM 56 UF 41...USC 50 That's another fact

Here's another one> You are the ba---tard child of Urban the Cryer

K-puke doesn't state facts. Saying that a program is "not down but eroded" is not a fact, it is an opinion. And he (or she) (or it) said that many times over. So much so that he, she, it have lost his, her, its edge in this argument. it is stale, pathetic, boring, and off-point. There.

You lose. Loser.

1 championship in 17 years
5 ch. in 25 years= 1 every 5 years
5 ch. in 83 years= 1 every 16.6 yrs
10 ch. played in 25 years= 1 every 2.5 years

3 ch.in 17 years
3 ch. in 25 years= 1 every 8.3 years
4 ch. played in 25 years= 1 every 6.25 years
3 nc in 136 years= 1 every 45.3 years

No matter which way you look at it. UF is still UM's be--atch. Just as K-puke is my beaea-atch

Excellent post Nice job showing your football acumen. I feel very insulted. Good job ... elliott with a small "e".


Thank U I actually wanted to see what it was like to post like a Redneck from Gainesville.

Don't forget Eric Rhett. Oh wait... yeah...everyone already did...

Floyd Mayweather VS Sugar Shane Mosely

The Fight To See!!! I Wish This Happens!!!

U MUST NEVER FORGET ... NEVER EVER FORGET CANE FAN ...


Intruders Breaching UM's Local Recruiting Wall


Cover your eyes Canes fans, or just turn away. What you are about to read might burn your eyes and cause your blood pressure to rise. Consider this your final warning.

Outsiders are beginning to make serious recruiting inroads into South Florida. Did you hear me? There's been a breach in the Great Wall of Canes. The green and orange protective layer that used to shield the hearts of players born in the area codes of the 954 and 305 is beginning to disappear like the ozone. And if the University of Miami isn't careful, the hole could get bigger. The intrduers could end up becoming permanent residents.

No, I'm not hitting the Hurtt Alert button because the Gators picked up their first commitment from a Miami-Dade player since 2005 in Ransom Everglades linebacker Gideon Ajagbe earlier this week. I'm sounding the Shannon Siren because I'm starting to hear a change in the voices of the kids from just around the corner. I'm starting to get the feeling the Miami magnet -- the one that always seemed to yank kids in South Florida naturally toward Canes nation -- is losing its pull.

Thursday, The Miami Herald hosted a media day for local 2010 recruits. We filmed interviews, took pictures and I got a chance to sit down and talk with many players (and their coaches) who are part of what is expected to be a loaded local signing class this coming February. One by one, I heard the same answers from the recruits I've heard for years. Hialeah defensive end Corey Lemonier, running back Jakhari Gore, Booker T. Washington offensive lineman Jose Jose and Miramar receiver Ivan McCartney all told me they grew up huge fans of the Canes. But what was different listening to these recruits was that there was no longer that overriding sense that their childhood love for UM is going make the Canes the team to beat in the end. What I sensed was a greater awareness from our local players, that there are more choices out there and just because you are from Miami doesn't mean you have to play for the Canes. It sounded to me like many of them have been listening to the other guys.

And the fact local players are beginning to realize that, should scare the heck out of the University of Miami. It may only be the second week of April -- 10 months before anything becomes official on the next National Signing Day. But there are serious signs the old Miami mystique is evaporating. The truth is outsiders have been working hard to make advances for years, and they aren't just knocking on the door anymore. They're busting through it and really are getting into the mind of local players once considered untouchable.

How else can you explain how a player like Booker T. Washington running back Eduardo Clements (the top RB on UM's board) has Georgia as his leader despite the fact his former high school coach works at UM and three of his former teammates are in Coral Gables? How else can you explain why receiver Quinton Dunbar, who committed to UM last month, decided recently he made a mistake and was reopening his recruiting? What started out with the University of South Florida stealing Monsignor Pace's Kayvon Webster on National Signing Day last February is beginning to smell a lot to me like just the start of a fire.

Don't take my word for it. Listen to the kids themselves. The first school out of Lemonier's mouth Thursday was Florida. He said the Gators speak to him more than any other team. Same for about 20 other kids. With two national titles in the last three years, the Gators have the attention of both Dade and Broward -- something they couldn't achieve before. Even FIU is gaining steam. Miami Springs receiver Willis Wright and 2011 recruit Rakeem Cato both told me, "Mario Cristobal is the truth. He recruits you the way you are supposed to be recruited. We can believe him when he says we can go to FIU and be stars there."

Believe me, I'm not relaying this message so guys like Canesrule and FIUFanatic come over to the blog,(which they will) beating their chest and telling the Greens and SarasotaCanes of the world I told you so (which they will). I'm just saying as a guy who has stood on the recruiting fence for 13 years in South Florida, the enemy is moving in and the battles aren't going to be so easy to win anymore. Consider it a warning...

WELCOME TO UR NEW WORLD CANE FAN ...

Where R U ?

Will the Real Kehoe please stand up. This dude is so lame that he has more fun stirring up people on a website.

Two things cannot be denied. The U is getting better. UF runs a gimmick offense that will not generate a first round offensive player next year. Without the most explosive player on the field leaving early for the pros there would be no first round draft pick for UF this year. Now that paints the picture for future recruits. It will take at least three years to go to the pro. There is no chance for the big money if you don't play Percy Harvin's role.

HOW MANY PLAYERS ARE COMPETING FOR PERCY HARVIN'S ROLE? I've heard of competition, but the odds are against you.

hope,

We are right here. and we are going no where

U in the toilet...scUMbag DOUCHEs.

Since these Gaytor Trolls won't go away and claim to have the "facts", here are some more facts about the Gaytors that have the Gaytors ranked at the top in 2009 -

Gaytor Criminal Nation:

*tried to make a top 10, from best to worst or is it worst to best (I got confused)…. But there were so many heinous crimes/assaults/stabbings/shootings and theft that I had to list some evil-doing as honorable mention. Like the “Its good to be Chris Rainey” recruitment or the mysterious throat slashing keg stealer.

Here are my top 10:

1. After Jarvis “Puffy” Moss jumped up (Ganja increased his vertical by 18″) and salvaged the croc’s season against the Gamecocks by blocking a last second field goal attempt, it was revealed he to also failed a drug test during the summer as the clock ticked to zero. Guess what game he missed? The showdown between top ranked UF versus division 1AA Western Carolina.

2. Gator great, Marcus “Medicinal Puff” Thomas - a multiple drug test failure, pot and GHB. Gator fans tried to convince us all it was from the same test… then the truth came out, near the end of the season with his dismissal from the team. Moss and Thomas were both drafted by the Broncos. **bleep** was Shanahan thinking?

3. Baby Momma Slappin Avery Atkins. The alleged victim, Benerah Sanford, told police: She and Atkins argued Saturday on a drive to Atkins’ grandmother’s house. Atkins leaned over and punched her at least 13 times, and pushed her face against the car’s window while he conversed with relatives. Every time Sanford tried to exit the car, Atkins either punched her or stepped on the gas. When the pair finally arrived at Atkins’ home, she ran off and called the police.
Earlier this month, Atkins was found in a car in Daytona Beach with weed, gun and digital scales. To top it off, it was not his car. He had enrolled in UF in January with plans to “fight his way back to the cornerback slot.”

4. Brandon James a football player and Brandon Powell who coincidently is the basketball player who sucker punched the Vandy student in the back of the head [link], were found together in Gainesville with…. you guessed it: marijuana in the car during an undercover “buy bust”. One felony and one misdemeanor — purchase of a controlled substance and possession of >20 grams of marijuana — suspended indefinitely.

5. WR Riley Cooper smashed a windshield, welcome the perfect gater. And just who is Jasim Alidina? Adlina was the victim of Freshman Riley Cooper’s flailing haymaker through his car window. While Alidina survived the incident, remarkably unscathed, neither Cooper nor the car were as lucky. Cooper was taken to the Morton Plant Hospital.


6. Florida defensive back Dorian Munroe charged with felony for removal of parking boot and placing it in his trunk. This was later ironed out as expected as UF is thin at the corner. One felony — theft of a police metal parking boot from his car

7. At Da Club, Ronnie “The Rifleman” Wilson slaps some guy, then spits on him, then ends it by shooting at him, luckily police actually stepped in one time before he killed that guy. two felonies and one misdemeanor — gun in a parking lot near campus — suspended indefinitely. THIS ONE ACTUALLY CAME BACK TO THE TEAM

8. LB Dusty “Rhodes” Doe, pummels some dude (ala Channing the Chainsaw Crowder) in a Alaucha County vs. Pasco County gang fight (Reds vs. Crips style). Punishment? No suspension from Meyer. Doe to face the (Jaws intro theme) Leadership Committee. one misdemeanor — disorderly conduct for parking garage brawl

9. The 7-Man shower Self shooting gun incident, Gator players led by Dee Webb, Andre “Bubba” Caldwell and Reggie Lewis had a $60,000 SUV loaded with improperly registered AK’s and other machine guns… and they were all drunk while shooting at apartment windows for fun. Of course initially nobody took the blame and they all said they were in the shower (together) and that the gun must have shot itself… Gators went with the deniable plausibility angle when Dee Webb shot off his arsenal saying he had already declared for the draft, so he was no longer a Gator.

T10. Dallas “Bike Taker” Baker, steals a bike, but when cops questioned him, Dallas said, “heck man, I just thought the bike was ‘abandoned’”. The sophomore was issued a sworn complaint from UPD as an officer stopped Baker near Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (which is a great place to take a deuce). Baker said he was late for an appointment and picked up an abandoned bicycle. Misdemeanor!!!

T10. Linebacker Taurean Charles. A UF student said Charles touched her against her will, the sworn complaint issued by the university police department said. Charles allegedly slammed her on the bed and onto a computer desk, picked her up over his head and threw her down on her roommate’s bed, according to the complaint. Charles was later dismissed from the Florida team.

Who is worse? Florida or Montana? [link]

Honorable Mention

Nyan (Cap’n Stabbin) Boateng gets into a heated arguement with some chick, a knife fight breaks out, Nyan Dogg ends up bloodied on the floor, luckily he was still alive.

“Nyan has some issues he is dealing with, and in the meantime, he will not participate in any team activities,” Florida spokesman Steve McClain said.

WR Percy Harvin, the star of the 2006 recruiting class, is a guy who was banned from Virginia High School sports. Why? Because he slugged a ref and had been involved in numerous brawls.

Chris Rainey and other recruits brag about how many gifts and wads of cash they are getting from Gator Alumni/Boosters… Cash, Jewelry, and throwback jerseys. But he was just joking. Ha Ha Ha.

Joakim Noah swipes at Vandy cheerleader, and later confronts the Vandy coach! That will show her and him. They were gatorbait!

Two Gator linebackers Darryl Gresham Jr. and Jon Demps go up in smoke, Cheech and Chong style, suspended from team on National Signing Day. Suspension/dismissals free up crucial scholarships for incoming Blue Chip recruits. Linebacking now a concern.

The unknown 6′4″ 280 pounder. A University of Florida student claimed a Gator football player stole his beer keg from the back of his truck which was heavily damaged as his head hit it. The student had a knot on his head and his neck was slashed by a ring. This was reported to the police as per a story in the Florida Alligator. This story quickly vanished. The student got his keg back and continued scraping the paint out of the knot on his head (legend says that the student now has a full scholarship!!)

"University of Florida Gator Football Players Jacques Rickerson and Ronnie Wilson arrested for beating and strangling women" This is the Gators 4th arrest in 2008. The Gaytors, however, are far outpacing the Noles in the "charges" and "felony" categories.

Other 2008 Gator misbehavins...
Stealing and using the credit card of a dead teammate's dead girlfriend.
Underage Drinking
Open container
The weed thing mentioned above

Go to the Fulmer Cup webpage for more rankings. The Fulmer cup measures misbehavior of college football teams.
The Gators are currently 13th, while FSU sits at 31st, and Miami is not ranked.

The Gaytors won't stay at 13th for long, however, as they will definitely vault up the rankings, possibly to # 1. The gators will receive 13 points for these latest arrests by my best guess: 4 (hitting girl + intensive care), 2 (simple battery), 2 (obstruction of justice), and for Wilson: +2 (assault) and + 2 (battery). They might also receive a bonus point +1.
The gators finished 3rd in 2007, while Miami and FSU did not even make the leader board.
UFelony finished 6th in 2006.
Factoring in even the most conservative of estimates, UF is now the ALL-TIME most misbehaved team in the Fullmer Cup!

2009 update: University of Florida police arrested Gators offensive lineman Carl Johnson on Monday for violating a sexual violence restraining order. This is the football team's third arrest since November. Cornerback Jacques Rickerson was kicked off the team for domestic battery. Quarterback Cam Newton, who has transferred, allegedly stole a student's laptop and threw it out of his dorm window upon police suspicion.

I ONLY WENT BACK A COUPLE OF YEARS CAUSE I WAS TIRED - but U get the picture Gaytor Trolls.

Meyers does a good job of getting them off the hook it seems till they get real bad then the nutt gets them,what a joke of a college at Florida !!!!

Same for about 20 other kids. With two national titles in the last three years, the Gators have the attention of both Dade and Broward -- something they couldn't achieve before. Even FIU is gaining steam. Miami Springs receiver Willis Wright and 2011 recruit Rakeem Cato both told me, "Mario Cristobal is the truth. He recruits you the way you are supposed to be recruited. We can believe him when he says we can go to FIU and be stars there."

Believe me, I'm not relaying this message so guys like Canesrule and FIUFanatic come over to the blog,(which they will) beating their chest and telling the Greens and SarasotaCanes of the world I told you so (which they will). I'm just saying as a guy who has stood on the recruiting fence for 13 years in South Florida, the enemy is moving in and the battles aren't going to be so easy to win anymore. Consider it a warning...

Top recruit Wall charged in break-in

ESPN.com news services
Updated: May 4, 2009, 11:27 AM ET


John Wall, the country's top unsigned high school recruit in basketball, has been charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, WRAL-TV in Raleigh, N.C., has reported.

Wall, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound point guard ranked fifth in the ESPNU 100's Class of 2009, was cited in connection with an April 27 break-in of a Raleigh residence, police told the TV station.

According to the report, a police officer detained Wall, 18, after observing him leaving out the back of the home. Two minors were also detained and charged in connection with the break-in.

Police said there was no forced entry and nothing to indicate anything was missing from the residence, WRAL-TV reported.

Wall will fit right in in Gaynesville where criminals are always welcome...

Here is a team [Gaytors]that the U has whipped up for over a decade and they win one little game in over 10 years and you can't shut their retarded obsessed fans up! WTF... all of their NFL picks during this time end up as mediocre pro players cause they play in gimmicky formations that do not translate the pro level, but their fans are too stupid to recognize this. They have never gone undefeated, and should not have played OK for a championship last year after losing at home to Ole Miss (what a joke)! USC was better than the Gaytors last year and deserved to play for the NC instead of the Gaytors.

Yeah and we have 5 of them crystal balls and you girls have 3.

Also K-puke, observe:

ALL TIME:

UF 641-373- 40 (WINNING PCT .608)ALL TIME BOWL RECORD: 18-19 LMAAAAAOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

UM: 552-307-19 (.629)ALL TIME BOWL RECORD: 18-14

PIS-S OFF. U R STILL A BEE () ATCH

Curse:

did you even go to school at UF? or Santa Fe CC? I cannot believe someone as ignorant as you has a college degree. If you do have one, that trashy school needs to review its admissions and graduation policies to see what went wrong. Institutions of higher learning are supposed to take the process of "Garbage in, Garbage out" and turn it into "Garbage in, value out" but in your and many other cases, the school failed.

Why you be so stoooopid?

EA Sports NCAA Football 10 is about to come out, and even they know THE U is coming as a Category 5. I could only find one screenshot of UF, and it is of Tebow, nothing else. Oh, even Al got on there but no Alberta. LOL

Doesn't really make sense, since THE U is irrelevant, huh, Gayturd num num!

GO CANES!!!

That's right and a couple of yrs ago, ESPN mobile had a commercial with none other but the canes.

Believe me when I tell U- UM has been in the top 3 highest rated televised college football games of all time. Not UF. UM. And yes, 2 of those were against FSU- 1994, 2006.

Wall was arrested for & charged with breaking & entering on April 27th...

http://sports.espn.go.com/highschool/rise/basketball/boys/news/story?id=4135650

Balls in your court Coach Haith. Personally, with the Canes history. I would pass...

Gaytor Trolls are away doing their farm animals... they'll be back flaunting their ignorance soon.

Dude, if you're talking to me. I'm not a Gaytor Troll. I'mma Cane. I'm looking out for the school. I don't care how much talent you have. If you can't stay out trouble, I don't want them @ Miami. NCAA chomping @ the bit to come after Miami again...

Florida Gaytor Fans: Buy your Tim Tebow Thong now!

The day we all knew would come is finally here: Florida Gaytor football fans can now purchase a Tim Tebow Thong. The Teebow, is a thong featuring the letter "T" on the t-back, adorned with (fittingly) a bow. What Are TeeBows? Excellent Question! Run all you Gaytor fans and get your thongs so you can be ready for your next "circle jerk" with your fellow Gaytors. What a bunch of freaking f..a...g...s!!!

Wall Gives UM High Marks After Visit


The Miami Hurricanes took their best shot at the nation's No. 1 available basketball recruit this weekend. So, did staying on South Beach and hanging out with Jack McClinton this weekend convince future NBA Lottery star point guard John Wall that UM could be the place he spends one year before collecting a multi-million million dollar paycheck at the next level?

"Dey b lotz ov Cribs tu breaks n downe dere."

"Did you hear John Wall spurned Billy D. and is becoming a Cane? "-canesrule

"I would not want to jinx it, but my bold prediction is Wall is a Cane." -canesrule

“Small classes, the weather, facilities, everything seems right and coach Haith,” Wall is reported to have told the AP, or was it Reuters. The City Beautiful rejoices." - canesrule

IS THERE A BIGGER CLOWN ON EARTH???????

Fools like you always change their mind with the direction of the wind.

Make up your mind canesrule you immense imbecile.

Here's looking down at U once again Cane Fan...


Damn, now Ur irrelevant in all the BIG 3 sports...

Hey "Curse of...",

Which game does the messiah have one of two things happen, he drops back from under center (taught to him by his own personal quarterback coach, hired just for him so he can be drafted higher, and paid for by state funds) and...

1. He gets blindsided low and blows his knee out, or...
2. His head explodes (it's already the largest head ever recorded for someone just 6'2") leaving a large blot of Saizen or Jintropin on the field

Hey look, I don't actually wish that on ANYONE, but for you to talk about our QB getting "knocked out" is a new low, ranking right up there with your racist comments in other posts.

Don't wish that on anyone, bro, 'cause that karma may just come around and bite your ass like in number 1 above

Any minority he will attack and here he`s give a stage for it..When he cant debate something like most fans can..he goes to the racist comments showing his lack of respect for anything..He`s classless and in my honest opinion really shouldnt be allowed on here..this is a Cane topic blog no matter the sport or event going on at the school..not for him to come slander a minority because he feels safe behind some keyboard..
