Florida still the top dog in recruiting.

FSU and Miami don't come close.

But it takes more than recruiting to beat the Louisville Cardinals

Are you talking recently or just this year? Florida has a great class so far, but FSU has the potential to have a scary good class as well. DeMarcus Walker, ESPN's 40th rated player in the nation just switched from Alabama to the Noles.

FSU had better classes than the Gators last year and the year prior and have the ability to to leapfrog them because they are in contention with more Top 150 players in the nation, especially 5 star recruits than Florida at this time.

At any case, those three teams always put on recruiting clinics. They are always in the Top 10-12 in the nation, and over the past couple of years, Top 5. (Especially, FSU and Florida)

I just hope all the talent this team has at FSU can finally translate and be worth it. We are stacked a lot of places. . . especially defense even with Woerner, Carradine, Jenkins, Rhodes and several others leaving.

After you mentioned him, it seems like FSU is definitely the favorite to land him. If he is from Booker T. Washington and wanted to go to Miami, wouldn't he have already made the commit? A lot of people say he probably wants a change of scenery. Pretty sure it is coming down to the Tide and FSU.

Miami has been informed that the NOA is coming within 72 hours for football and men's a nd women's basketball. I'm hoping to avoid the LOIC charge in light of the level of our cooperation. If they do get LOIC they will fight it hard before the COI. The most hotly contested issues at that point will be the applicability of the exception to the 4 year statute of limitations (the violations occurring in the last four years are relatively light) and the issue of corroboration. The enforcement division believes silence equals admission of guilt. There are some regulations which appear to require more so it is unclear if the COI will agree with the enforcement division. There is corroboration for some things but not others.
There is also a gambling aspect to this which has not gotten much pub.

I know Donna is pulling out all the stops politically...we will see how successful she is. We have made numerous in publicized internal changes at the behest of the NCAA and cooperated fully and taken the unprecedented step of self imposing 2 bowl games plus 1 ACC championship game...that's 3 postseason games voluntarily given up.

It better count for something.

Hearing the basketball team is going to get hit a lot harder than football....which is fine by me.

Also hearing former football assistants Clint Hurtt and Aubrey Hill are staring down the barrel of long show cause penalty. Former basketball HC Frank Haith also likely to receive a show cause as are two of his former assistants.

That's definitely been in the works for some time. Hopefully contingencies have been made so it's not a huge impact.

I'll admit I don't really understand the impact of recruiters anyways so...

The thing that really sucks about NCAA stuff like this, though, is that the teams committing the violations are always long gone before the punishments come down. They can punish school legacies and fanbases but they can't actually punish teams and players - the ones doing the wrong. When successful players might only be there for 2-3 years though, there's just no good solution. Then when you hear the number of schools facing some sort of violations or accusations at any given time, it really makes you think the NCAA enforcement is just in over their head.

Strong rumors that Miami might hire FSU OC James Coley for the vacant OC position (former OC Jedd Fisch, also a former Denver WR coach, left to be the OC with the Jacksonville Jaguars). FSU pays more, but Coley is a bit frustrated there because Fisher won't let him call plays and he thinks that is hurting his advancement prospects. He's also from Miami and my understanding is his spouse and child are in Miami.

It's clear what Golden is trying to do here.....he's building his staff with recruiting the "State of Miami" first and foremost. He knows he might be down about 5 ships a year for the next 3 years, so he wants to round up all the elite Dade and Broward talent to compensate for some depth issues. It's one thing if your depth was crap, its another if its a good player from a historically high talent area (I would venture to say a South Florida 3 star is equivalent to a 4 star elsewhere...for proof, look at Louisville's roster). That's why he is building a staff of ace recruiters (Barrow, Carroll, etc.). Look at Cristobal, he's an ace in the Miami area in recruiting in particular. That's how he built FIU, getting C and D List Miami talent that didnt go to BCS schools. Then if you can add Coley, not only are you getting another top flight recruiter, but a guy who is FSU's ace in the hole in South Florida. Coley was their man in Miami (along with Eddie Gran, who has now departed to Cincy). If they can pry Coley away, it will go a long way to locking down the "State of Miami" and hurting FSU's currently superior talent base. Seriously, Golden's passion is recruiting and that's his No. 1 asset as a coach, along with brilliant community and media PR. If you team Golden up with guys like Cristobal and Coley, they will LOCK DOWN the Miami area.

The gamble, though, is that if you build a staff of ace recruiters, you better hope they can coach too. It's not always the case that you can do both. Most coaches are strong in either one area or another, rarely both. Coley is relatively untested as an actual playcalling OC (outside of 1 year at FIU under Cristobal). That will be the key..can these guys actually coach?

Recruiting Update

6: Would not surprise me to see him at UM, FSU or Bama. Could go either way. Kirkland becoming a Cane silent will help things as thats his teammate. They will both be at the Miami-Duke game tomorrow. Hopefully the fans chant his name all night and after the game is over, Golden sends over some high quality females his way. An evening of big time college basketball, steaks and b****es for Big 6. Git R Done, Al.
Kirkland: Cane. Hopefully he can bring his teammate 6 along.
Bryant: I get the feeling he's a Nole. Req wiring him some serious cash all the way from North Dakota isn't helping us right now. Dammit. Seriously, I'm feeling FSU here.
Bostwick: Cane. He has offers from Bama and UF. Hopefully we can get him to cancel the UF visit. Looks like grades will not be a problem.
Coley: Would be a Nole except his HC is trying to steer him to Miami. Thanks Donnell, the check's in the mail, bro. This could go either way, I think he's leaning FSU, though. Kid is a headcase but an absolutely ELITE talent at WR. Like Amari Cooper elite. Film is sick. He has a visit to Ole Miss coming up and they have been spreading some serious cash this recruiting cycle, so I could see them biting both the Canes and the Noles in the ass on this one, but if I had to go with my gut, I'd pick FSU.
Collins: Exact opposite. Kid is leaning to UM but his HC is steering him to Arkansas. Could go either way, slight lead for the Canes. Hot ass GF goes to UM, that helps. I would love to land this kid, we would have the best 1-2 RB punch in all of college football with him and Duke.
Grace: Was thought to be a Cane lock, but Louisville is making a very, very strong push at the last second. He backed up his commitment date. I really hope this is just for show because I'll be pissed if Strong steals him. He's a diehard Cane fan and his family is all pushing UM, but he had a great visit at Louisville and Teddy and all his boys are pushing him hard. This is closer than I'm comfortable with.

Ahahahaha..... I told you not to **** with Donna, NCAA.....and now Mark Emmett has a full scale crisis on his hands and has initiated an external review of he NCAA procedures and admitted that info improperly obtained will be thrown out. You think employing Shapiro's attorney on your payroll might be a small problem?

I bet Yahoo and Charles Robinson have a huge e on their face now. This is by far the best day since the start of he investigation. I now wouldn't be surprised if we didn't lose a SINGLE scholarship.

They are in massive hot water and he NCAA president himself is fuming at the enforcement division.

We are going to skate.

You don't **** with Donna.

Update...according to some of our insiders we may now be done with any further sanctions.

This is truly a great day. A red faced NCAA president admits his investigators committed serious and shocking transgressions against us which is going to seriously derail the investigation and we've got a ton of big football recruits at the game tonight watching the basketball team smoke No.1 Duke.

Its great to be a Cane.

Any thoughts as to whether that's going to impact the whole investigation or just Miami who have already served part of their punishment? It'd be nice for some particular coaches who have moved on elsewhere to be forgiven...

One note today from one of our insiders said that regarding individuals some but not all of the individuals at play might still be on the hook but he noted the attorneys for all are having a field day with this.

Miami has hired FSU OC James Coley for the Canes vacant OC position. This is a huge recruiting coup. As I mentioned in an earlier post he was their Ace in South Florida. I think we will lock up WR Stacy Cooley now (no relation)....and Alex Collins.

I don't think he is an upgrade from Fisch as an actual OC but he is a beast of a recruiter.

We will lock down South Florida with him and Mario and Al.

Your class is going to take a hit Req.

I'm personally not the biggest fan of the state but when it comes to football talent, there's no denying that they don't suck. And since that's what this thread pertains to...
