Thomas talks about what the loss of James Coley means for his recruitment to FSU.
For the latest recruiting scoop follow me on twitter: https://twitter.com/joshnewberg247
What hometown fans? Nobody watches them, not family or friends. He should ask what's it like to play in front of an empty stadium.
This kid has a great poker face! Josh, what are your thoughts? Do you think Coley going to UM will have no impact on his decision as he claims?
The Future is Now.
Definitely doesn't give anything away, and being written by a Miami guy there is an obvious Miami slant to it. I like our chances now though. Seems to keep an open mind, and I'm hoping Jimbo sweet talks the mom. Come on down MT6! Come play for a school that's already on top
Lol he doesnt give away much!
Were there more people at the UM basketball game then there were at all of the UM football games combined? Jimbo should show him a picture of the stands from this season. Then ask if he really believes he is playing in front of a home town crowd.
I know you played in front of more people for high school. But look on the bright side, you will know everyone in the stands.
I'm still not getting my hopes up, but he definitely does sound like he is approaching it maturely and as a business decision. Really sounds like the hometown factor is the only thing Miami has going their way (granted, it being a huge thing). Who knows, maybe he decides he wants to play behind an incredible DLine and infront of 80,000 fans.
Cool he got to see the biggest crowd he will ever play in front of in Miami..............at the basketball game.
The fact that he said Coley going to Miami doesn't change anything for him just goes to show you how he is feeding BS. If he can say that with a straight face then he should start playing poker for a living.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
Whether he lands at FSU or Miami got to give the kid respect on how he has handled the recruiting process.
Pathetic that UM has to hire a 5 star's favorite coach to have a real shot.
I said it a ton already but maybe I'd didn't matter
His mom likes Jimbo, he knows we have a better DL and coley wasn't his position cach anyway
We just don't show up to weak games. Too much to do in South Florida on a Saturday. You guys wouldn't understand that. But big games are always sold out.
Canes have 5 national titles with crappy attendance.
I couldn't agree with you more.
If he wants to play close to home then he will go to UM. Sanctions are coming and even the NCAA mishap does not change that there was a mountain of evidence. If he wants to play for a contender then FSU is the place. I like the way he has handled things and hopes he picks the good guys.
Games are played on Saturday afternoon. 70-80% of FSU fans who attend games live in major cities where there's plenty to do. Get out of here with that weak excuse...your an base is a joke!

Excuse or not we still have had more success than you guys in regards to titles and players in the Pro's.
That is because the other team fills half of your stadium.
Water is just beer that hasn't reached its full potential.
That's all Cane fans can talk about these days.
Let's talk about 13-11 last two seasons, and 0 ACC Championships. That's more relevant and current. I don't feel like blowing dust off of the 1990 and 1980 archives.
Hell, Minnesota has 5 NC in football too if I'm not mistaken. That doesn't mean that they can hold our jock straps in football in 2013.
You guys keep harping on the fact that our attendance sucks. It's always been like that.
BS...I was at your biggest game of the season this year. If massive tarps over major sections in the upper deck count as sold, then yes you are correct.
Support down there rivals the support for our beach volleyball program.
And which one of those teams will Matt be playing with? How many of those current players will be beside him? GTFO. Your team is absolute trash and next year will lose to FSU for the 4th year in a row. Our coach wins 10+ games and we want to fire him. Your coach has one more win than loss and you guys think he is the second coming. No wonder none of your former players care, you shame the once great school.
