CR, 2 Michigan St. had one pick, 24 in the draft. 3 South Carolina two, a sixth round WR to go with the top pick. 10 UCF had just Bortles to go with that 7th round ex-Hurricane RB. 17 Oklahoma State had just the first round pick. 23 Duke had a fourth round CB taken. 25 Washington had a pair of 2nd round selections. So, there you go, another excuse debunked.

"Posted by: TonyCane | May 27, 2014 at 02:19 PM" Well that's about as close to an admission that this is nothing but a cherry picking, limited data exercise as we're going to see I'm wagering. I'm not sure what a limited sample of one evaluation site notorious for ex post facto changing of rankings is supposed to support here but like I said, I'd love to laugh at the link to the Rivals page ranking Luqman as a potential star player anytime in his career coming into college. Again, unless there's eligibility in college left to consume, give me the NFL draft ranking over the subscription site PR that's old electronic fish wrapping for all the good it's worth, if there is college eligibility left, give me an average of many rankings instead of one site's opinion based on basically who pays the most into which team's subscription sub-site color scheme mask on their network of pay windows.

Wow, I have no idea where these lists are scrapped from but they're inaccurate even at just a passing glance. Where to start? How about here; 'Offensive Line: 2006: (5) Pou, BRAIN, Barney, Trump, Youngblood' Who is 'Brain' supposed to be and who overrated him and Alex Pou to have them considered returning 'talented' linemen? Eight years after the fact, high school projections are irrelevant and you can just go ahead and start using NFL draft results as a more accurate arbiter of recruits talent in college anyway so all the star gazing is useless with that big of a lag from signing day for a class. Now farther down the list we get this; Defensive Line: 2006: (11) Abdallah, Anderson, Brown, Campbell, Dixon, Franklin, Harris, Hendricks, Holmes, Moncur, Pata Please link to where Luqman freaking Abdallah was listed as anything but a fat guy project of a live body coming out of high school because that's all he ever was for the years he took up a roster spot standing on the sideline and I've seen him ranked in the 300's of linemen at his position in high school when he played football. So to recap, the list is flawed, projection rankings out of high school ten years after the fact are even more useless than when the lists were originally made and if you want to argue still that Alverage Slogan had such a bare cupboard of talent when he stole his pay every week from the university for not doing a better job than a coach at Vanderbilt for whatever useless reason, then Slogan should have nobody in the NFL who was inherited from the previous regime ever on his roster to show that being the case. However, there's plenty of NFL paycheck collecting talent who played or was on the team before being dissmissed for knowing more about defense than the idiot influx from New York state's septic tank, Alverage continued to choke like the loser he always has been as a player and coach, and so the argument as well as the lists from high school used to try to prop it up falls as flat as a Dorothy Sandusky denial of knowledge of what was happening in the basement of her home with D'No's second favorite lifetime coaching idol and D'No's second favorite lifetime coaching idol's latest prey. When's the next 'ACC is good and you must chant its initials' article going up to make Hurricane football fans feel better about the failure to win the worst division in BCS football for the second consecutive year in a row?

Hope was a three star project and was injured his senior year in high school mostly or am I off on the details recruitniks? Either way I don't remember him doing anything other than lifting weights for the team these last two years despite once sitting on top of a depth chart in summer years ago in yet another useless mind game attempt by a useless head coach. 2012 signing class has been a disappointment almost down the line to date, still time to turn it around from bust status for a lot of the players but there's already plenty in the washout category from there as it is. Sounds about par for the course under the guy who swore he'll fix that defense, just as soon as he interviews at this other job of course. Butch Davis, still available and interested in the open UM job Blake James . . .

"Dont worry D'no you didnt build that Defense!! Someone else helped you!!!!! Posted by: VA Cane | May 21, 2014 at 12:31 PM" Subversively funniest string of keystrokes posted on here so far this year for my money. Wake has the fewest seats in their home stadium in the BCS auto-qualifier conference era BTW SOUP. SunLife is perfectly acceptable, it's the product on the field and in the coaching office that isn't up to snuff. But everybody on here now understands that unless they're used car produce slinging for whatever reason.

Hey look, a blog dedicated to chanting ACC because UM underachieved yet again. This is what losers have to resort to in order to deflect from not being good enough to stand on their own. Next there's going to be a huge wave of 'respect' the Semenholes and Jimbo sentiment because they hammered Alverage into the unemployment line. That will be head shaking laughable when it happens and it's already started the last two years. I heard Lucic took handshake encounter BINGO quote lessons directly from Alverage after every game 49-49 career record coached against a team not the worst in three generations that an opposing program has put on the opposite sideline.

Syd the petulant child is definitely trending down. League office will get an original six East rep and LA is still in play so Kings/Rangers payoff final TV rating is still on the board potentially, so nobody panic and do anything rash like detonate the nucleus in despair.

"Bills: OT Seantrel Henderson (seventh round) I don’t care if he was a seventh-round pick. And I don’t care that if you drew a picture of a franchise left tackle, this 6-7, 331-pound athlete with sweet feet would be it. Henderson has been nothing but trouble since being one of the top high school recruits in the country. Multiple failed drug tests during college at Miami and then, again, reportedly during the scouting combine. Henderson couldn’t even finish his pro day workout. And on the field, he’s not even good. Henderson didn’t come close to earning the privilege of hearing his name called during the draft. He should have been undrafted. That’s what he earned." http://mmqb.si.com/2014/05/11/2014-draft-10-picks-who-stand-out/?eref=sihp LOL. Suck it Gred Bedard, now go stuff another doughnut down your gullet and be sure to remember to choke. Henderson was one of the better UM players in the last 10 years and will be one of the best value picks next to Storm Johnson in this draft class. Thanks for sticking out the atrocious attempts at using hash-tags on a site other than Twitter to make you the butt of unfunny running gags, joke of an AD carousel, and loser one-size-wins-nothing-to-brag-about game plan installed each week these last three years to remain in the hunt for the roster spot as a pro Seantrel. Chalk up another, but far less prestigious, championship for Kehoe to hang under his hat this summer as well when it's time for coach's meetings.
Posted by: CaneRock | May 03, 2014 at 08:36 AM Shortest off-season of all the major sports, so in a way, you're right, it never really ends, just takes a break to draft and then goes right back at it a few days later.

You know the seat is hot when an imbecile who only knows how to competently self promote his incompetence at his job is turning down exposure on a pay cable network. Dave Clawson can be had from Wake, you know, if you're serious about hiring a coach with an actual winning reputation from the MAC and money is no object. Which Blake James hasn't shown yet because he's just a ticket manager over-promoted in the hierarchy until he shows otherwise.
I approve 100% of the entirety of the content contained in this blog post. Morris earned that lifetime contract over a decade ago, whether you've got a punchline like Odai running your AD or not, and did so by finishing way better than .500.
Anti-Kehoe sentiment has mostly cleared out in the last few years from here. Not much detractors can wield against the guy though, between the rings he sports and the draft history for guys he's coached. Now this touching hands for a snap count BS that has been exposed and exploited for about two months worth of games, I don't know if I lay that at Art's door or the OC's or the .500 career winning percentage salary thief predominately, though we all know where the buck finally stops for this stupidity being used another minute now that Louisville stomped that sorry tail into the ground, in the home state boundaries, with no heaters on the sideline and a field that actually could be cut on without giving way. Art's lines never used this technique that's a dead giveaway before though that I recall under any other coaches, so I'm chalking that up to evidence showing it's somebody else imposing that particular directive to employ it from higher up the chain of coaching command. Anybody want to put odds out there that we can find video evidence of Pedo State OL's using it sometime in the late 80's to early 90's, also known as the times they never won a national championship? At least 50/50 would be my first guess.
Well, if you listen to the organ grinder, somebody apparently released a monkey with a wrench into the works recently, from the dashboard homepage of the blog; "We're working on recovering from a DDoS attack which affected access to both the service and blogs. The entire Typepad team is diligently working to restore service, including issues with mapped domains. We appreciate your patience. To keep up to date, please keep an eye on Typepad Status and follow us on Twitter." Those distributed denial of service attacks aren't a joke. You twitter users should be able to keep up to the second though apparently on recovery efforts, if you can stop reading feeds from underage high school students at least.

Well, one year ago today this guy was called up to open an eternity of music, peace and love on the big farm in the sky, so memory of his legacy as an artist, here's him covering a song about The Don doing what it takes to restore UM football to where it belongs by doing what the Peter principled ticket manager playing AD can't grow a set of cojones large enough to do what's necessary on that particular front through jettisoning the collective brain fart stinking up Coral Gables from the coach's department . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JltNLkh03ME (And because I'm generous to everyone this time of year, here's the author of the song not dropping a few key lyrics and electric for comparison sake, but the reading of the lyrics remain the same, you can do this The Don, you have the power to fix the prearranged ritual suicide of football you let Special K license on his way out the door; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkEx4BDhRjw )

Hurns to me = a combination of a rich man's Andre King and a poor man's Reggie Wayne. Why are people pulling out failed college QB's moved to WR (and back again in some cases) for a comparison, much less a championship winning Semenhole?

"Posted by: Pre83 | April 17, 2014 at 10:34 AM" I didn't CC that particular memo to you? Going to have to fire my secretary then . . . Parise lost his regular season game in New Jersey in his return, that's payback enough as far as I'm concerned because I'm now directing all my ire at the intern in the league office who came up with 'Metropolitan' as an acceptable division name, thus forcing Kovalchuk to move back to Russia so his little girls wouldn't grow up Americanized and seeing their dad as an example of a 'Metro guy.' See, there's only so much ire to go around Pre83, and with still so much worthless coaching in the UM football office that hasn't been fired despite being long overdue for a dismissal, I forced to just congratulate Zach for cashing in on Lamariello's reluctance to negotiate extensions prior to a contract year and save some of that precious ire for the idiocy on parade at Greentree yet again.

And, anybody who is SHOCKED or APPALLED that Tallahassee would squelch a rape investigation when there was a national championship in football hanging in the balance to be won by doing so just doesn't understand the realities in play by placing a state capitol in the middle of nowhere because air conditioning hadn't been invented yet. You actually expect justice to be pursued in an impartial manner when 1999 was 14 years ago? How is that supposed to work? Priorities people, priorities . . .
