UM REALLY SHOULD CHANGE THE FORMAT!

UM coaches drink CANESPACE coffee.

And now we know the missing ingredient from the coaching equation last year! Look for marked improvement all across the board in 2012.

Great stuff 86. I heard several complaints as well along the same lines. 13 days to Gameday

j.w.

thanks for the recap, 86. Saw Freet responded to you on twitter, at least UM pays attention to constructive criticism .

Pre83

Did anyone else see Ojomo sack Tebow in last night's Giants vs. Jets preseason game?

I saw Vernon made a play or two in the Phins game.

Sean Spence held his own tonight. I also read that Forston had a play or two in practice Friday, but that was the only time I've seen his name since the start of camp.

BTW, anyone in SoFL have any word on Lamar Miller's progress (or lack thereof) so far this training camp?

LB

Excellent article. BC approaches...

YES, he did and I appreciate that. I will be emailing him today with some ideas on hoiw to improve it for next year.

tjl3909

am I incorrect to think they have 3 of the best corners on one side in Gunther, Finnie, and Howard, and McGee starting on the other?

Sinistercane

McGee is a senior so he can stink it up and still play

tjl3909

I agree Sinister-hopefully they move on from him by game #2

Sinistercane

Regarding BUCHANAN u never heard a word all summer from streetz canespace Miami.scout.com the herald plus RB was hurt and now he sit tops on the depth chart.

VA Cane

Singer Scott McKenzie, who performed "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" — which became a hit in 1967 during the city's "Summer of Love" — has died.

This was a symbol for the Woodstock Generation and those who love that time period regarding music. I remember when this came out; I still have the single. Guess I was 10 or so; later that year, my 21 year old cousin took me to my first concert at Constitution Hall in DC. I was living in Northern VA at the time, as my Dad was FBI. The "main" attraction at the concert was the Monkees, but my cousin took me to see the "opening act" whom he said was incredible and I must see. The opener: The Jimi Hendrix Experience!!! When we left, I was a convert and have been ever since. What a day huh?

86Cane

The starting quarterback, gone. The team’s most productive runner in a decade, gone. The top two receivers, gone. The best defensive player and unquestioned locker-room leader, gone.

Still, somehow, hope is not gone at Miami.

Even after a 6-6 season, and even with the NCAA investigation into compliance practices that overshadowed last season still unresolved - sanctions aren’t expected to be handed down until early next year - the Hurricanes are heading into Al Golden’s second year on the sideline insisting they have enough talent to contend in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

“For us to get back to where we want to be in the college football world, we can talk about everything and what the expectations are and anything on the outside,” Golden said. “But the reality of it is, for us at the University of Miami, right here, right now, there’s only one way out, and that’s the (ACC’s) Coastal Division.”

Ohio_Cane

Papa Cane - Recruiting Update: OL Hunter Knighton, 6'5'' and 265 lbs, has Miami in his Top 5 along with USF, Purdue, Navy and BC. UM has a good shot.

LB

Some of the players on the rise:

Dorsett (Co #1 w/ Hurns)
Thompkins (co #1 w/ Scott)
Dye (Now #3)
Duke (Now #3)
Hamilton (now sole #2)
Robinson (#1)
Pierre (#1)
E. Johnson (co #1 w/Armbrister)
Paul (co #2 w/ Gaines)
Fentress! (#3)
Bush (co #1)

Lots of movement. Nice to see Fentress getting some love. Deon Bush seems to be as advertised. Mike James still reigns.

LB

Reading between the lines of Golden's interviews:

It looks like Ereck Flowers, should be remain injury-free, could be our next superstar. He's a beast and not letting up. It's also nothing new... he's been killing linemen since he came in in the spring.

A more mature team equals more wins. They are lightyears more mature than in 2011.

Gabe Terry plays harder than anyone. I love it. He will play almost immediately.

Special teams players (minus returners and kickers) are still a work in progress. Walk-ons will be knocking some scholarship players out of the lineup because of it.

Playmakers: Dorsett, Scott, James. Kendall Thompkins will surprise.

Strong leadership on offense. Need defensive leaders.

Organizational integrity is key. Meaning: Golden will kick anyone out for nonsense. Critical.

Some players aren't intrinsically motivated. It's a lot better than 2011 though.

Skill > Talent.

2013 class will assume 16 spots.

hassan

Golden on wqam this morning. Slips and says we have 6 spots left. Taking only 16 this year. We will be very picky about those last 6 slots.

VA Cane

I will say this: we got some big boys on the OL. I dod not live in FL; I am sure some of you see them up close. If they are quick on their feet, intelligent footballwise, disciplined and aggressive, we should be able to run the ball. If we can run, then we can pass. Defense is another question. We will not win the NC, but I think we can compete in each game. That OL is a big key as always. The D line will be too, we got to get pressure and tackle....and maybe our DBs will be ok.

hassan

Porter hurt again...

86Cane

Ohio...I got in lots of work on Twitter this AM. Check DMs, good results so far, more via email later.

Hassan...yeah I heard that too. Interesting to talk to Carroll at the Canes Fest event also. He was very vague but VERY positive.

LB...good summary of the Golden interview with Rose this AM. Hope and change may not be happening in Washington DC but it is definitely happening in Coral Gables!

COACH FISCH CAME BY OUR TAILGATE AT THE SPRING GAME ON HIS WAY INTO THE STADIUM.COOL GUY

canezilla

SO IS HENDERSON NOT PLAYING THIS YEAR OR WHAT?

herbieibis

Hope springs the eternal optimist.
Say it ain't so, Porter is hurt again?
Still no Henderson? Canesport has a nice article on Trell and his desires concerning football or lack there of.

j.w.

Herbie- hate to say it, but it's almost to the point where anything we get from Porter is a bonus. Henderson I think will contibute by the end of the year, he needs a good boot in the arse from someone like McKinney again, but there is a solution to his problems. With Porter all you can say is what a shame.

86Cane

With only 12 days to go until the 2012 season opener, the Miami Hurricanes enter the final stretch of #CanesCamp. The Canes hit the practice fields Monday for their 20th practice of the fall.

Just moments before his routine pre-practice media session, second-year head coach Al Golden released the second post-scrimmage depth chart of fall camp. On Saturday, the Canes held their second fall scrimmage, but it was ultimately limited to only 60 plays due to lightning.

“We’re really looking at the total body of work,” Golden said. “We’ve made a lot of decisions over the last 24 hours. Obviously, there are positions still open and we’re still competing. Clearly, I think we know who we’re working with at this time.”

A few new position battles emerged on Monday’s depth chart, including at receiver and along the offensive and defensive lines. Also among the depth chart competitions are at the running back and secondary spots.

“Running back, a lot of decisions there,” Golden said. “We’re trying to figure out Ben Jones and Jermaine Johnson on the offensive line. Both have earned playing time.

“One of our defensive end spots looks a lot better now than (it did) two weeks ago with Shayon Green, (Kelvin) Cain and (Tyriq) McCord,” Golden said.

Sophomore LB Jimmy Gaines and senior LB Ramon Buchanan were not dressed out for practice, while Green and Denzel Perryman were the lone defensive players wearing a coveted black jersey.

Tuesday will be the Hurricanes’ fifth and final two-a-day practice of fall camp, which will begin at 8:35 a.m. #CanesCamp will break Wednesday with a 9:25 a.m. practice.

LW...Porter was listed as a starter. How bad was his injury?

Ohio_Cane

Milian - Al Golden says Seantrel Henderson has to "get personal house in order." Does not expect him to play vs, BC.

Nice! Saw U this AM working it! Great stuff!

raizecane

ohio - sent u a message thru ps3 ..did u get it??

Ohio_Cane

Raize, did U send it today? I haven't gotten any messages. Haven't checked either though. I'll check it after work today!

raizecane

it was over weekend i think....i saw u on and sent a quick message. No biggie....

BTW - i found a couple of money plays in ncaa 2013 that is just pissing off my friends cause they cant stop it...lol.

Ohio_Cane

Raize, no I didn't see it. My bad.

Nice. Does the message say which ones? I haven't even played online yet. I'm thru the 2014 season tho. Perryman graduating this year and I'm sad. Lol. He's a monster on there.

raizecane

From the ACE Bunch formation -

Corner Strike
Hot Route X (center receiver to a streak)

reads: the corner route will get open vs most coverages. if you feel the blitz coming, dump off to the flat route

I had my X receiver get over 600 yards and 9 TD's with this one play, LOL.

LB

"LB...good summary of the Golden interview with Rose this AM. Hope and change may not be happening in Washington DC but it is definitely happening in Coral Gables!"

Great to hear. Time management is really important. Glad to see that Freet and crew are listening to you.

Just a reminder, folks...

...if the 2013 class only holds 16 spots, one of those spots is for Angelo Jean Louis. Add in 10 commitments, and that's only 5 spots left (despite the rumors of a possible decommitment or two). I'd also expect some attrition, so that number may not be final.


"Porter hurt again..."

Are you serious? !#$(!@*#$(*!@#$(!*@#$

UMike

Ima do something crazy...unthinkable....ima go ahead and trust that the coaches who see the players every day know what the depth chart should look like lol

herbieibis

Al, I'm glad you fianlly realized that big Trell wouldn't be ready for B.C. Like I said before he won't help us until late Sept.at the earliest and that's if he comes back and plays at all.

LOL!!

U must be NUTS!!

LB

"OTHER NOTES:

Seantrel Henderson is still not at camp. Golden said he's still on the team, but "has to get his personal house in order.'' Seantrel, of course, isn't on the depth chart."

The Henderson Hard-on from Susan Miller Degnan continues. Why is this even relevant? He'll be welcomed back as the 6th or 7th lineman and all should be well. Each of her articles feature some sort of connotative comment about him. Is she in love or something? Even Joe Rose stopped asking about him.

If you want to edit my post, feel free. But remember who coined the term "H.H." But it is rather strange.

orange 'n green in the vein

Henderson was the consensus top recruit out of high school his senior year, was a freshman standout and played well last year in the coaching transition, it's newsworthy but obviously it's tiresome at this point. Beside, what else is there to report on from this camp? It's not like anybody else on the team has done anything of note by comparison to this point in their careers except him. Now if Regis found a way to get another year of college football this late in the game . . . you'd see some fireworks from SMD.

Ohio_Cane

Phins named Tannehill the starter. Not completely shocking, but kind of.

Ohio_Cane

Curtis Porter is not injured. He has a "health issue" they're being careful with.

86Cane

Ima do something crazy...unthinkable....ima go ahead and trust that the coaches who see the players every day know what the depth chart should look like lol

Posted by: UMike | August 20, 2012 at 01:50 PM

Now that's just plain stupid. What the heck are U thinking? We all know more than the coaches especially those of us who went to the Canes Fan Fest. LOL

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | August 20, 2012 at 12:45 PM

Gary Ferman from Canesport and Brnadon Odoi from CaneInsider are already ALL IN! I am waiting on a few others but expect some more reponses soon.

canezilla

86 IF U ARE GOING TO MAIL THE SCHOOL ON IDEAS ON HOW TO IMPROVE CANEFEST GIVE THEM SOME IDEAS ON HOW TO GET MORE PEOPLE TO THE GAMES!!!LIKE THE 25K TICKETS THEY HAVE LEFT OVER FOR ALMOST EVERYGAME START GIVING SOME AWAY TO PEOPLE WHO CANT AFFORD THEM

86Cane

Zilla...they can't give away FREE tix to the general public because then those that paid for them will be pissed.

They should give more tix away to the underprivilidged kids in DCF/DJJ care and custody and to more youth sports leagues and teams. Maybe even HS teams?

orange 'n green in the vein

Time to start the Schnelly days, "buy a whopper, get UM tix for free," promotions again until this thing gets turned around?

Oh the ignominy of it all.

86Cane

OGV...i think the slogan now would be something more like: "Buy a VW, get two free tix to a UM game."

86Cane

Among the top 25 HS teams in the Country:

4 are from FL
4 from TX
3 are from CA
2 from MD

4-Real

Don't u just luv how Floriduh is suddenly falling apart?

4-Real

U guys remember Jacoby Briscoe's rb teammate that chose Tennessee over UM, Devontae Bourqe? He's already put in his transfer due 2 'broken promises'. Reminds me of another high- profile back that chose Tennessee over Miami a few years back.

solarcane

soup,
I looked forward to this blog topic anticipating the inevitable pictures of you standing in the middle of a group of very uncomfortable looking cheerleaders.

Just kidding.

Great to see the new coaches realize who is paying their salaries and are taking time to make the U family united again.
I'm happy you had bountiful lobster trip too.

solarcane

Three years of nothing from practice except "They were flying around"

Now information overload and people still find reasons to bich about bogus depth charts, vindictive news reporters, crappy autograph sessions. Me I love everything about The Golden Era as far as being fan friendly goes

Hassan

Porter is hurt, it is his knee. DO not believe the pot smoking rumors or him and Trel being secretly suspended til Sept 1. Although Porter does blaze lol

Solar..Trust me I have that picture too just chose not to use it for now. Saving it for the right time. LOL

And no U weren't kidding but hey I'm OK with that too. U have earned the right to bust my chops on here 10X over.

86Cane

Solar...BTW I also got my chops busted by UM today because the "media" was not supposed to conduct "interviews" with the coaches at the Fan Fest event. I was the only one who did so now I have to go stand in the corner for 10 minutes I guess.

orange 'n green in the vein

86, tell them that you'll gladly stop talking to the coaches at Canes-Fest . . . as soon as they grant you media credentials. Until then, coaches are just talking to fans when it comes to you, right?

86Cane

OGV...that is correct! The problem is now they have offered and I have to decide which side of the fence I wanna be on.

Do I wanna tailgate with the Canespacers and sit in the stands or get there 3 hours early and sit in a press box with SMD and Brian "The Beast" London drinking iced tea?

TOUGH CHOICE.
