Wish he'd just commit there already. What the hell could warrant all these meetings and discussions? If this is to create drama and intrigue its having the opposite effect on me.
Synopsis. He tried to delay committing and they yanked his spot. His family reach out to the school. They meet again and Kirkland tells them no. Now they meet yet again to discuss.....?
Why is this so hard for both parties? Should it be this complex? Never realized they had so much talent and depth to be so selective.
So there is a decent possibility that we whiff on Bell, Kirkland, Golson, Tunsil ugh! I thought that Kirkland had said that he and Thomas would be playing at FSU. This is getting ridiculous by Miami. First they toss him out like trash and now they are kissing major azz to make up for their blunder. If he goes there after that colossal mistake then they are made for each other.
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Wow. That makes zero sense.

I'm not challenging any part of this, but they (UM) didn't let him know that they had a scholly for him at yesterdays' meeting?
Not to mention a phone call could confirm it. Someone is trying to get him as much facetime with um as possible.
Made sense to me. Why else would you let your school and your player get punked like that? Ice seems to be slurping on da U.
I get that Ice has Cane loyalties but its not like they can help his career. He's going to continue to produce great players regardless. Good chance he can end up at another (better) school if that's what he wants ultimately.
It might seem that way to you, but it's probably the opposite.
Fish and I have been talking about it for about two weeks. Not exactly sure what happened with Ice and Miami, but I'd say the relationship is about as opposite of "slurping" as you can get.
Maybe Golden was available today? Golden was not at the meeting yesterday.
Pure speculation on my part, but I think he probably did commit and now they are letting him get his time on ESPN. If he made it public ESPN might yank his scholar.......err TV time.
Josh - is Ice pushing Kirkland to his friend Shannon ( Arkansas )
Sounds like the step father the one setting up visits with Miami
Also - Miami and every school recruiting Kirkland has room for him ( all would make room ).
my take is Miami gave him the hard sale because they were losing ground to FSU/Arkansas..... and it backfired then
they made asses of themselves saying they did not have room and he could not get in..... then these head games.

Ice has recruits go to big time programs every single year. He doesn't get emotionally tied to where he has "friends", he can't worry about that stuff.
People put way too much weight into where Ice wants Kirkland to go. He has parents that are involved, you think those parents are just putting their hands in the air saying, "well Ice wants him at (x), so I guess we'll make Denver go there".
Ice is the middle man, the one that talks to these schools and passes the info on. He deals with nearly every school in the country. It's gotta be a real head ache this time of year, I'm sure he's invloved, but not to the extent some would like to believe.
Kid is dying to go to UM. FSU fans are getting their hopes up only to be crushed on NSD.
Time for a break TNole27 -- Josh
