Did Ojomo seriously get into a fight in the locker room?? If so, that's a dam good sign, as someone said. That means we have some real Egos, on the team, not counting the one who's going to become a Cane next year. lol

Truth, any inside info on this little nugget??

Esteban

2002 team's OL was similar to this one to me. Had one side that had a stud OT and a good OG with the other side with a somewhat experienced OG and a first time starter at OT. Until Ohio state beat up on that weak OT the skill guys carried things and the OL was very good on a whole cause they did what they could do best a lot (run), pass blocking was theleft sides weakness. This group probably will be better at pass blocking than run blocking tho. I don't think they'll be bad at either tho. Don't think they'll be great at either as well. Just Good enough

Esteban

And the Cal highlights made me wish Chambers wasn't always hurt. And got me ready to see Spence light some more dudes up this year.

mm01

SOUP,

How did U get invited to Raycom?

Don't they actually want intelligent, insightful, and compelling blogging? People who have meaningful thoughts to lend to an interesting and enlightening discussion?

Have you been invited to a discussion on the differences between single malts and blended Scotch whiskies!

NOW, this is more sense!!

Calvin

It's going to be real interesting to see how the skills guys are rotated, we know about the wide outs requirement, but the runningbacks, damyum, will chambers and berry get in enough this year. I think chambers will be a step faster this year as well, technically he's a junior i believe, because he redshirted coming in.

mm01

Chambers did RS.

I would like to see Berry bang it between the tackles some. Very impressive in the Spring Game, but haven't read much about him so far in camp.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Calvin, yeah those Cal highlights definitely showed what the future will hold, like RIGHT NOW future. And you know Spence was licking his chops with those screens. Tedford must have only watched the GT game. lol

Dayton, that team-wide improvement is exactly what's happening. I could help but think about how different this team is compared to the Cal game.

GONE....Cook, Davis, Bruce, Reddick

REPLACED BY....Sharpton, C-Mac, Phillips,

GONE....NIX

REPLACED BY....MIRACLE WHIP.

I think Lovett is actually a slight upgrade over Young, maybe more than slight because he seems to be more of a teacher.

BIGGER, STRONGER, FASTER, BETTER....

Jacory, Forston, Bailey, Robinson, Ojomo, BH, Spence, AJ, Byrd, Hank, DVD, Benjamin wasn't even in that game, Javarris( smaller and faster), Cooper, Berry

ALL NEW AND IMPROVED...

Streeter, Vernon, Kendall, Sam, McGee, Micanor, Buchanon, Futch,

BOSSES, ALL OF THEM...

And then there are the true freshmen who will be impact BOSSES...

Ray Ray, Dye, and Miller Time.

As long as the OL plays solid, this is a totally different team.

Esteban

If Wylie wasn't at safety I'm not sure Berry breaks as many big runs. But still was running hard. Haven't heard much about him or chambers in the summer. Actually not much about any of the backs outside the one day miller got mentioned.

mm01

did Wylie stink that bad?

He did end up @TSU, correct?

Esteban

Yea Wylie looked pretty bad in the spring game. But is a RS freshman so had time to improve. Was hoping he stuck around.

Esteban

And you start the canespace facebook page yet?

mm01

not yet, but It'll get going here soon. It's already there, and Loco gave me the codes, but haven't had time to sit down and get it started.

Everyone will know when it starts to get rolling.

Esteban

Oh okay. I just saw how they got it set up if doing a page to promote something instead of a personal one. New to facebook overall.

mm01

So am I. I'll be learning as I go, just like the myspace page.

I think a few other Spacers are going to volunteer to help me out with it.

mm01

It's ALOT of hours, putting the page together, the friending, etc... it's very time consuming, but I enjoyed putting the myspace page together after I got the hang of it.

You wouldn't believe how much time I put into that page. But, I was unemployed at the time and it gave me some purpose, just after the birth of this website. I think Facebook is more popular now, and it's another FREE way to advertise the Space and help grow the readership, overall numbers, and increases our exposure on the net.

And you'll never know who or what will cross your path along the way. It produced Lamar Thomas, Rohan Marley, Ethenic Sands, and Jon Peattie interviews. Also got AllCanes to start talking to 86 and he took care of the rest from there.

It's too valuable a tool to ignore, and we will have it going full tilt, soon...

Esteban

Canefantasy already got a ton of players as his friends I think he said. So should help speed that up. Plus no designing how it looks I don't think.

Canes.Fan.In.California

In regards to LB numbers, Hurtt set his goal as 3 LBs. Cornileus does indeed make 3, however Javarie Johnson is a "tweener" of LB and DE - so they could still go with 4 if Luc wants to be at the U, especially at ILB, where we need more help. My guess is LB recruiting is mostly done other than Luc and keeping the guys we have.

"How did U get invited to Raycom? Don't they actually want intelligent, insightful, and compelling blogging? People who have meaningful thoughts to lend to an interesting and enlightening discussion?"

MM01...THEY CONTACTED ME VIA EMAIL.

They hire consulting firms to do internet searches and find college team blogs and they found the Space. Told me over the phone (I'm not making this up) that we were their #1 target for Miami Hurricane sports.

They are wanting to get more "social" is the way they explain it. It's ganna be really BIG with video links, Game of the Week and guest bloggers and linked back to Canespace blog, so traffic should go through the roof.

They offered me a featured, permamnent weekly blog page on their site so I couldn't say no. It will be run Word Press blog software so we can experiment with something else for a change. Should be FUN!

86Cane

MM01...post your email addy here so anyone with Facebook experience can help you out.

Thanks for taking on this project just like the myspace page. Good job there!

86Cane

safe to say Luc is bye bye?

Outside linebacker Tyrone Cornileus set to play for the Hurricanes

Tyrone Cornileus (Stone Moutain, Ga./Stephenson), the nation's No. 25-rated OLB, has pledged to sign with Miami-FL, ESPN affiliate Web site InsideTheU.com reports.

Cornileus selected the Hurricanes over Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Tennessee and Michigan. More than 20 programs including North Carolina, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Mississippi, Maryland, Mississippi State and Boston College also offered the three-star talent.

"It boils down to where I feel the most comfortable at," Cornileus said. "I can see myself in the future playing for Miami and going to school at Miami too. I like Miami for more than the football program. I have been down there a few times and I developed a great bond with the coaching staff."

Last fall, Cornileus registered 118 tackles, eight tackles for loss, three sacks and scored two defensive touchdowns.

During the course of the combine circuit this spring and summer, Cornileus posted an electronically-timed 4.66 40-yard dash, 4.16 20-yard shuttle, 7.66 three-cone drill, 32.9-inch vertical, 34-foot power throw, 10-foot-6 broad jump and 93.9 SPARQ.

Courtney Harris is done at the U due to failing his physical for the shoulder injury suffered last year. He is looking to transfer to a 1AA school so he can play this year. That is, provided he can pass the physical there. Sad story for a good kid.

CaneSawMassacre

Good Morning Space!

CaneForce

Thanks for the updates Canez1. Hope Cooper and Ojomo are not out to long. Did they have to wire his jaw shut? I hate injuries!

Old Skool

Dayum. Broken jaw. That's some severe locker room horseplay.

Apparently, we may have a team enforcer or else Ojomo tried tugging on Bailey's cape.

How bad is Syracuse??? QB Greg Paulus (former Duke PG in Basketball) hasn't played football in 5 years and IS THE STARTER! Wow!

CaneSawMassacre

I guess they are pretty bad but, give the little JEW kid his due credit.

And I meant no offense to any JEWS... I'm allowed to say that since I'm Italian.. I think... Wait nvm...

CaneSawMassacre

I think I'm o.k. I didn't break the only JEW joke rule.. Not within 50 years of the actual Holocaust and not within 10 days of any religious ceremonies..

Check my Math.. I should be good to go for today..

pb(CSROH10)

Is Shandel officially the laziest reporter in Miami?

Middle of fall practice, players hurt, starting jobs being won and lost, interest in the U at a frenzied level and he hasnt posted anything in 5 days.

DZ8

Agreed pb.

CSM

Quietly walk away from that one.

Daytoncane

everybody wants some fame. one of the docs from grey's anatomy has a sex tape out with his wife and some model that was on celebrity rehab.

Esteban

if you gotta say no offense after than that tells you that you probably shouldn't have said whatever it is you said.

pre83

All that I can say is thank God that the more serious injuries to date are to positions with quality depth.

Ojomo has got to be pissed at himself. Well, someone is going to get his chance!

Now we know why Randy is never really comfortable in saying that he has "enough" good players at any one position!

...Then there was Clappy. (Cold sweats overcome me just thinking about it! Where's my headset?!)

What else U got, Canez 1?

Go Canes!

darn.


It was really a jab at Paulus.. but I guess everybody missed that. I guess it needed to be seen live to experience the laughter..

I'm not racist, I swear.. (oh that is cliche' too...) Nobody will believe me now..

CaneSawMassacre

Actually I think it's a Euro thing.. Sorry I meant to add that in there too!

Darn European humor.. It doesn't always translate correctly.

elliott

Losing Ojomo hurts bad is he going to play in game 1? He better because he is hands down the best pass rusher on the team...

DZ8

I think Robinson is the best pass rusher on the team. JMO.

DZ8

Ojomo is more run stuffing. He is only a redshirt sophomore. Plenty of time to dominate as a rusher.

Esteban

i think Ojomo was more consistent of a pass rusher last year. Robinson had one great game, but wasn't getting pressure consistently last year. Now that's last year. We'll see about this year.

86Cane

The area code in New Port Richey is: 727

CanesgirlNC

Tom Cable should hang out with Patrick Kane

DZ8

I think Robinson flashed more towards the end of the year and will be a beast off the edge. Of course that is a projection and I'm sure Ojomo was more consistent last year rushing the passer.

CaneSawMassacre

I'm not sure what to think about Ojomo.. Probably the same thing I've thought about most players on the team last year.

Flashes of brilliance, moments going WTF is he? Is he even on the field....

Just very inconsisent. Then again with the suspensions and now this, it is just dissapointing because we needed him to have a big year.

We can def. rely on some of the depth but it would have been nice to not have to.

DZ8

Defensive Ends

Best pass rushers:

1. Marcus Robinson
2. Eric Moncur
3. Adewale Ojomo

Best run stuffers:

1. Eric Moncur
2. Adewale Ojomo
3. Steven Wesley

As always, JMO.

Esteban

dz8, that's your projection for this year? or based off what you saw last year strictly? my list might include Vernon somewhere.

We knew it was only a matter of time.

• Freshman Stephen Plein was switched to offensive line yesterday. He is now wearing number 77.

DATcane

CORAL GABLES _ UM running back Graig Cooper missed Tuesday's practice with an an ankle injury.

He wore a protective boot on his right foot, but coach Randy Shannon said the injury is minor.

"For sure, he'll be back for the first game," Shannon said. "It's nothing serious."

Shannon said he was unaware when the injury occurred. He described it as one of those freak things, but doesn't know when to expect Cooper back at practice. Shannon looks at this as an opportunity for others to get quality reps in practice.

"That's why we've got Mike (James) and Javarris (James) and we've still got Damien Berry," Shannon said. "So you've got five guys still getting a lots of reps."

A few thoughts:

-Defensive end Adewale Ojomo had undisclosed surgery Tuesday morning, reportedly for a broken jaw. There is no timetable for his return, but he could miss the season-opener at Florida State.

Shannon said the injury occurred while players were "horsing around" in the locker room Sunday.

"That always happens in the locker room,” Shannon said. "Guys always get into that two-a-day swing when they want to just wrestle around and horse around and things happen like that. You’ve got to move on.”

Despite several discussions on Internet message boards, Shannon also said Ojomo isn't suspended.

-Freshman tight end Stephen Plein has switched to offensive line. He made the move during Monday's practice. His addition should give a thin unit some depth. The switch also means the `Canes are pretty content with their tight end concerns, mainly the health of Dedrick Epps and progress of Jimmy Graham.

-The post-practice interview session ended with a little humor. Cornerback Chavez Grant stepped in the media huddle, using his mouthpiece as a mock recorder. He asked Shannon why he worked the players so hard in the sun, and if it were possible for the school to purchase an indoor practice bubble.

Shannon responded by saying the players need to prepare for playing in this weather.

Grant concluded his questioning by asking if Shannon would ever run sprints with the team.

After Shannon said he does that when he runs from the tunnel on game days, Grant responded with, "That's what we call loafing, we don't want that out here."

Ojomo done messed up now. He may never get his spot back. Guess there is next year! HAHAHA! The competition is starting to get FIERCE...Just like the old days. Vernon I believe will now get his reps, as I expect Moncur and Marcus Robinson as the starters.

bg1906

Chavez Grant is FUNNY! HAHAHA! Would've loved for Randy to answer one of Chavez's questions with Ocho Cinco's.....

"Child Please!"

LMAO

DZ8

Loved Chavez Grants questioning... nice.

Esteban
More like a projection for this year. Vernon would've been my fourth for pass rushers.

MasSivCane

Seeing Shannon joke around with players and seeing the player joke around with the coach is kinda refreshing on both ends, but the Child Please thang would have been off the hook, I am sure the players get that once the media isn't around.

Was that scrimmage report true about the forst play, 70 yd TD pass from Harris!!!
