FSU is at it again. First it was Derrick Green, now FSU is after Yannick Ngakoue, after the criminoles went all out for Artie Burns, Alex Collins & Keith Bryant!! The fact that fswho only targets MIAMI targets is proof that they're more interested in stopping Miami from winning championships rather than winning ships themselves. Either that or you gotta lazy azz recruiting staff. Looks like a combination of both. But what's really sad is the fact that u guys stoop so low as to offer / waste schollys on the teammates of the studs just to get a crack at kids like Collins, Coley, Bryant etc...Funny how you never go after Bama or floriduh recruits, but then again nobody does cause nobody can afford em lol.
I couldn't agree more Jimbo has no imagination. FSU fans mock our lowly 3* like Jeremy Kerr then they offer and he is a all of a sudden an instant beast. This is what happens when you have no plan as a coach. He just copies Nick Saban to a T, I'm sure he even eats little Debbie cookies too. Jimbo recruits off of recruiting sites and who UF and UM offered....like I said some men are followers some are Leaders
Well dude it's like this-actually you can say JIMBO is smartening up with this move. He can see that AG has a good eye for talent so he figures if AG is on them then, they are worth going after-that's what amounts to dude. What pisses me off & I just don't get it is-when you grow up in Miami & are a CANE fan-how can you even consider FSU with knowing how much we absolutely hate them & that they are our biggest rivalry-that's 1 I just can't figure. Talk to those 80 CANES & you get a sense of it in our 30 for 30-They absolutely hated FSU & that's the way it should be. When they were growing up -ut was the "U" or bust & when they did get in-they hated FSU with all they had-Now these kid's from Miami look at them as equals if not even higher & that's just what I can't & don't understand. !!
CANE 4 LIFE & BEYOND !! I BLEED ORANGE & LIVE GREEN !!!!
Just a fyi, FSU recruited Yannick early last year, backed off when he committed to UMD....
Todays kids don't have the Loyalty of yesterday, They are easily swayed by the littlest of things and that is ok. People who Love Miami will still go there and those who have doubt will continue to look at TV on sundays and see the Canes.
What is crazy is how we had 6 guys this year and I still feel Jimmy Graham should have gone but hey FSU had only 2 guys what does that say. Last year we had I think like 8 guys if you really look at the Impact Looks Why Beau came to Miami he did his Homework.
Beau saw how many guys we have continued to churn out and he saw his Opportunity, But 17 to 18 year old kids don't do research like this they are still in love with the fan fare rather than doing a Business decision that will lead you to greater rewards.
Also FSU and Jimbo isn't going after guys cause UF or UM is going after them... FSU didn't offer Kerr til Christian Morgan decommitted from FSU...
But what team is Kerr committed to again???!! I REST MY CASE.
It's pretty hard to argue that jumbo doesn't go after guys Al Golden is after. Funny thing is that Golden has been on these guys when they were nothing. (ie Alex Collins when he was a 3 star). Now all of a sudden, Alex Collins is a five star and jimbo is all over him.

Guess what FSU also offered and is recruiting another TE in Arshad Jackson who was committed to Auburn....
FSU lost a TE, Kerr and Jackson were the next two on the board.... simple as that...
Most of those guys FSU was already recruiting.... even before Al got to UM
Yea I'm sure the thought process for Jimbo goes a little something like this:
"Man, I've beaten the doors off Miami and Golden the past few years, yet he seems to have a better eye for talent - I should start offering all the kids he is going after!"
But wait, then Jimbo realizes:
"You know, Good ole Al has not realized what wins games - OL / DL superiority! And, I will continue dominate the trenches recruiting"
Hence that will continue this year...
All joking aside - Many, many teams are offering the five or six kids you are mentioning; I don't think Jimbo mimics recruiting the guys Al Golden is going after; that seems silly; Now Urban Meyer did that, without a doubt. Heck, I think he had a GA who looked at rivals four stars and offered them based on ranking.

Two teams in the same state recruiting the same players... conspiracy
Yeah its true SwoleHole9, yall been beating us lately, but that ain't saying much considering Virginia beat us 3 straight. But the problem with u guys is that u can't beat anyone else with all the talent u have. You're never gonna turn the corner until u get your mind off Miami. Noles24 u have an excuse for everything. Let u tell it, guys like Ed Reed, Clinton Portis, Warren Sapp were all Noles commitments before they came to Miami. Now you're claiming that FSU was already recruiting certain kid before Golden got to Miami. What a joke. So we're suppose to believe Jimbo's been recruiting Yannick Ngakoue, Alex Collins & Tim Williams since the 9th grade? Lol.
Why not O.j. Howard from Bama or Desean Smith from LSU??
9th grade... smh.... didn't realize that Al has been at UM for 4 years now....
And what does Reed, Sapp or those guys have to do with what is happening right now? Nothing at all.
And the word most doesn't mean all.
Give us proof or GIVE IT A REST!! I prefer the latter.
FSU offered, they showed bo interest unlike Kerr and Jackson... I mean both guys have visited and call the FSU coaches... recruit those who are just as interested....
Give what a rest.... did I do something out of line...
Wow... SMH on this board.
Look - Miami self-inflicted shot after shot on itself, so you (as alumni or fans) have no one to blame but the institutional leadership! How is the investment in football at Miami compared to UF or FSU? Alabama? UGA? Why do those schools swoop into the Dade / Broward area and take kids?
I can guarantee you that if Jimbo goes 8-4 or 7-5 next year that seat will be scorching hot; would that be same for Al Golden or is the President content with those type of seasons?
And yes - I predict four in a row next year and a UF beatdown. Why? The investment in football is MORE at those schools than at Miami.
It's five o'clock somewhere!!!
Dude, you talk / post as if FSU is the epitome of college football! Judging by yours & Noles24 posts u would think its FSU in the title game & not bama & notre dame lol!!
FSU IS pathetic
however not for the reasons you listed.
FSU isn't going after players only because we offered.
FSU is going after players because the players earned them.
99 (actually more) reasons to criticize FSU but this ain't one.
University of Miami Class of 2013
So you honestly believe that 2* John Franklin actually earned his FSU offer, and it has nothing to do with landing Alex Collins? Of all the tight ends in the country they just have to have Jeremy Kerr? Who offered Reggie Northrup 1st, UM or FSU? Then to say these kids 'EARNED' their FSU offers makes it sound as if YOU actually feel that FSU is superior to Miami & that Miami's offer is secondary / last resort. But everyone is entitled their own opinion Joven Nole.
Oh the irony
This rant makes zero sense....
The truth never makes any sense to u. Little word called DENIAL.
