Lack of talent at UM
So I decided to go to bleacher report and I came across an article discussing the top 70 NFL prospects for next year. Any guesses as to how many 'Canes were on that list?

its bleacher report,a trained monkey can write a article for them. No one should take bleacher report seriously.

I'm going with one (Ray Ray) and I have a hard time believing he's deserving of that based on his performance thus far at UM. The cupboard was obviously left bare or the talent just wasn't developed by the last staff but I really believe we are going to see that trend turn around quickly with this staff. Can't happen soon enough...

We have basically been a .500 team since 2005. I don't need anybody to tell me we have roster issues.
0 receptions, 0 yards, 0 TDs, and 1 offensive unit transformed.

I think Ed has a good take on this. Miami needs to come up for air on the NFLU entitlement & just get back to playing elite football. It's no secret we'll always stock the League's shelves with talent. It's refreshing that our guys might actually have to prove themselves.

Liked what Michael Irvin said, saying that NFL knew that players for Saban were hard workers, and that likewise, players for Golden were hard workers. There will be no candiasses playing for Saban, and there'll be no candiasses playing for Golden.
That old "play the cards you're dealt" BS is just about over.
The past several years suck. We're all a bit aggravated and simultaneously nauseous about that.
Not the next NFL draft, but starting the year after, we'll have our MoJo back. And likely, some better informed, hard-working, coached-up players who are prepared for the next level.
Entitlements are just about over.
You can go ahead and write that down.

I set google not to return search results from bleacher report. That site is basically sports spam.
That said Randy left the roster thin of high end talent and the cream of the 09 class (based on stars) has largely left already.

Yes, Archer. Yes.

Isn't next year's senior class relatively small in part due to the early departures? So the pickings for the NFL are going to be really slim.

In two years, whatever players we have will have more skill, more desire, more sense of team, greater ambition, and a greater awareness of what it takes to win regardless of the difficulty.
It's not the total numbers that we have graduating - it's the number of consistently top performers that are NFL-ready.
And some are still getting off the bus.
And by the way - WHAT 'Cream' of the 2009 class???????
