Since the title wasn't popular-I changed it " IT'S BOUT DAM TIME " ... I know some of you might think AG done Kirkland wrong but put the shoe on the other foot-don't ya think Kirkland was doing AG & the CANES wrong?.
He got a phone call-He has had this offer for a long time- The CANES have put in A LOT OF HARD WORK to get him to commit to the CANES but instead, Kirkland chose the recruitment game. Now- His offer will be going to a kid who knows the want to be a CANE-100% & THAT is just simply what it has to get back to here.He could have told AG that he is a silent & there wouldn't be this hoop la but-I think it's time ..........
AG SENT THIS MESSAGE THAT-THE CANES ARE STILL A BIG TIME UNIV. IN CFB & WILL NOT BE MADE TO LOOK LIKE A SCHOOL WHO IS ON THEIR KNEES BEGGING AN 18 YEAR OLD KID TO COMMIT TO A 250,000 SCHOLLIE TO 1 OF THE BEST PRIVATE UNIV. 'S IN AMERICA.
Now the word is-AG done this to more last night & the word is that- MIAMI only has 1 schollie left so-He did lay it on the line-He did tell these kid's who have had the CANES on the fence for a long time that either-you are gonna be a CANE or you don't have a committable offer any more. It was time this message was sent that-Miami will not be looked at like the school-"Well, I can just commit to Miami any time-NAH -AHH - AG IS PUTTING A STOP TO THAT NON SENSE & CAN YOU BLAME HIM-HELL NO?
We have a lot riding on this class & no way could AG let this go on all the way til NSD without any idea where we stood with these last kid's who our coaches have spent valuable time to get them to be a CANE but just had that mind set of -"I CAN COMMIT TO MIAMI IF OTHER'S DON'T WORK OUT". I absolutely love this & it had to be done because after this year-they will be lining up around the school wanting a schollie & will commit on the spot.
Take a school like Texas-Their 2014 class is almost finished now & expect to have it filled by March & here we sit with 13 commit's & putting all our eggs into a basket hoping that we get these kid's & if we didn't-AG & Staff would have to be on a mad scramble to salvage these last few schollie's. This is the message that had to be sent-even if you are a Miami kid-when you get that GOLDEN TICKET-"U" Just don't treat it like it's an offer from FIU or something of that status. AG is sending the message that if "U" want to play for the CANES-"U" Have the offer-He will give you time to think about it but-when it comes crunch time & he calls you 5-6 day's before NSD & you still tell him you don't know well-He has to look at the "TEAM" not just 1 individual.
Now, saying that-there will be 1 or 2 every year Like MT this year that you have to leave that offer open but-for most we are recruiting & expecting an answer- you have to know where you stand with them or you will be standing there naked as a jay bird on NSD having to recruit just like you have for the past 2 months but only have a few hours to do it.
So me personally-I am glad AG SENT THIS MESSAGE & MUST HAVE GOTTEN OUT FAST CAUSE ON TOS -THE WORD IS -WE HAVE 1 SPOT OPEN SO THAT MEANS HE GOT A BUNCH OF SILENTS LAST NIGHT & THAT IMO HAD TO BE DONE. CAN NOT BE MAKING MIAMI LOOK LIKE A SCHOOL THAT HAS SUNK SO LOW THAT-THEY WILL BE ON THEIR KNEES BEGGING YOU-SO- THIS WILL SEND A MESSAGE AROUND HERE FOR FUTURE CLASSES & KID'S THAT-WHEN YOU GET THAT GOLDEN TICKET TO COME & PLAY FOR 1 OF THE BEST PRIVATE UNIV.'S IN AMERICA-A TEAM WHO THAT IS ON THE RISE TO BE COMPETING FOR ACC CHAMPIONSHIPS & NC'S THAT-YOU BETTER TAKE IT WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE.
This is why you see teams like Texas-Bama & other's that not only basically have their class filled this year but-already have a bunch for next & this is the way AG is gonna make Miami again & it's the way it should be.
A MIAMI SCHOLLIE WORTH 250,000 IS NOT GONNA BE MADE TO LOOK LIKE JUST ANY OLE OFFER & I AM SO GLAD AG HAS DONE THIS. NOW HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S GOT GOING INTO NSD & WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO TIL NSD. I APPLAUD HIM FOR SAYING" ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" "U" ARE GONNA TELL ME SOMETHING OR WE ARE GIVING ANOTHER KID WHO WANTS TO BE A CANE THAT CHANCE THAT YOU HAD BUT INSTEAD FIGURED YOU COULD JUST PLAY AROUND WITH IT.
WAY TO GO AG-BUILD US THAT EMPIRE AGAIN WITH 100% CANES THAT LIVE & DIE FOR THE ORANGE & GREEN & WE WILL BE HOLDING THAT CRYSTAL EGG SOON BY RUNNING OUR RECRUITMENT LIKE THIS AGAIN. GOOD JOB TO AG-STAFF & TEAM WHO HAVE ALL PUT IN A LOT OF WORK TO HELP BUILD THIS CLASS & MAKE IT AS GOOD AS POSSIBLE. !!
LONG LIVE OUR BELOVED CANES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What he said!
Brick by Brick
"There's going to be a lot of people who didn't stand with us who are going to be remembered for not standing with us,"
It's five o'clock somewhere!!!
I'm convinced you're not a UM fan forreal..why is it that everything that is said just to shed some light on the situation you down? Bruh get over it, Kirkland doesn't have an offer anymore and BTW coach is gunna be fine. More importantly than that is UM WILL BE ALRIGHT. Trust the Tie bruh
Incredible grammar and spelling. Great read
Not guilty y'all got to feel me
I hope your right, would love nothing more than for Golden to be right. I still feel he is making a mistake, I have loved everything Golden has done until now. I'm not going to agree on everything but not being a "Real Fan" that's your opinion

That is the truth PREACH!!!!!!! I agree with u 100% if miami is ur "dream" school then y dick us around jus commit already n guarantee ur spot on team and b part of something great i dont see anything negative about wut AG did, he basically said either ur with us or against us no matter where u r from even Booker T.
Lol, y'all chill out, small typo, we know what you meant it's cool
It's all about the U!
You right, didn't mean to come off like that just be cool bruh. Personally I just don't like some of our posters on this thread that are showing their skirts..Its a Tie thing
I believe you read it wrong STACKS- I believe this is how AG had to take hold of the rest of this recruiting period-call all our main target's & get an idea where they are cause-no way can we afford to get caught with our pants down on NSD bro.
I think this is the way recruiting has to be handled around here again-Miami offer was looking like it didn't hold the water it once did & AG is gonna make dam sure that a Miami offer is as good if not better than any school in the nation. He is no longer gonna play these games & I for 1 commend him on this.
It had to be done STACKS & nothing I said in my writing was down playing Miami in no means dude-I have been a CANE since 79 & they have been a huge part of almost my whole life so-Don't ever get the impression I'm not a CANE dude-I live & brathe the "U" & couldn't even imagine my life without them I am just glad that AG is gonna make these kid's look at a Miami offer for what it is
One of these best offers in the Nation & not 1 to be taken lightly or playd around with. This is how it should be & I'm glad to see him rise up & take hold of this as it should be my man.
stacks- I apologize to you my friend-I mis read your posts-I didn't see MASON CANE at the top & MASON all I was trying to get across is-This had to be done bro-AG has to get these kid's & especially our Miami kid's looking at UM as "THE" school-not just another bro!!!
How is it a mistake?? Please explain! AG sent a message and made it loud and clear. This kid had an offer for 2 years! Every interview he had he always said the same thing that no school stood out more than the other and all were on the same level. At least with MT6 he pretty much said it's between UM and FSU which gives the staff more reason to pursue him. DK tried to play the recruiting game and ended up getting the short end of the stick.
DK was simply a luxury at this point like TW was. You think AG was trying to get burned again the way TW burned us? This may have been one of the reasons why he made this move. How many times in the past have we seen us be patient with players to only see them throw the U hat to the side for another school. How many times have we seen players use their offer from us as leverage to get more offers and then turn around and commit elsewhere i.e. Kerr. You don't see Bama going through this cause they don't play that.
In addition, let's be real DK was not an elite recruit but he was good. I personally think Gall is much more athletic and physical than DK. Furthermore, the 2013 class is a filler class with the exception of a few recruits. The c/o 2014 will be just as vital and significant as the 2012 class. 2014 is LOADED with way better talent than 2013 and AG is going to murder the local scene for 2014.
You'll get pictchforked out here real quick talking shit to champseeker like that.
