Today's Practice Update: LB Thurston Armbrister continues to progress and has been running with the 1st team. LB Buchanon looks healthy.

---------

Now there's a stunner to those last year who thought signing Armbrister was a throw-away depth chart move. I love it. Rooting for him big time.

CEO

Felipe...make him your LOF?

CaneRock

Ya'll remember I said this:

I'ma go out on a limb and say Gunther at the boundary corner,and TH is the field corner. If I'm not mistaken, LG was blackshirted in the Spring.

Posted by: CaneRock | August 07, 2012 at 10:24 AM
And Golden said this:

> Golden said Gunter, who is the starting BOUNDARY CORNER, has made a big turnaround at camp.

"Ladarius started off really poorly, I mean really poorly. So much so that by day three, he was third team," Golden said. "But he did not give up, he just kept studying, kept preparing, had a great attitude. I think anybody around the program would say the last three practices he's been really, really good. So hopefully he'll continue; he'll develop some consistency."

Gunter said he's dropped a handful on interceptions throughout camp and is mad at himself over it. Gunter said along with Finnie, freshmen Antonio Crawford and Nate Dortch are working at boundary corner. He said Howard, McGee and freshmen Larry Hope and Vernon Davis are working at FIELD.

Sure, Screw it. Armbrister instead of Perryman. I think someone unseats Gaines anyway by end of the year.

WindyCane-Forecast1

Said safety Kacy Rodgers: “He’s [Randy (Duke) Johnson's] a home-run hitter. He [ Duke] has some of the best agility and speed we’ve seen here [at the University of Miami] in a while.”

Given the talent the Canes have had recently, including Lamar Miller, Rogers has said a lot.

And I agree wholeheartedly!

UpNorthCane

Bout to see my boy Tom Brady go off for two series r so on them saints.....

Does marcus forston, go off and impress? Or is it a failure? Time will tell.

Posted by: Felipe | August 09, 2012 at 06:19 PM

Yeah, but most people think that will be LB Eddie Johnson.

Still I will change your LOF pick to Armbrister as requested.

HOLLA! Good call, U know your stuff.

Hassan


Shouldn't Howard be Boundary and Gunter be field? Howard is more physical and less fast i think he would be suited up on the near side of the field so he can use his technique and instinct to use the boundary to his advantage, where as the taller and faster Gunter can cover more ground as the field corner.

Zakkee

Gotta get mine in

Offense: Dorsett
Defense: Porter
Freshman: Lockhart
Coach: Barrow

Honorable Mention: Buchanon

CEO

Zakkee...I got U. I will post a list of all of those who voted on Monday along with a stats analysis of the picks.

Zakkee

Cool. I'll check back. If anyone knows how I can get some decent Miami vs. Notre Dame tickets let me know. I'm going regardless, just want to save some money if possible.

TonyCane

College fantasy football draft was last night and I took Mike James and Duke Johnson. Who do you think will get more touches this season?

Hassan, Gunter is waaaaay bigger, and more physical, than TH.

Typically, you want your most physical-ie your best tackler-on the boundary side, because it's assumed that most teams run to the short side.

Conversely, on the field side, you want your best cover CB, because it's assumed that most teams pass to the wide side of the field.

Gunter is basically like having an extra LB/SS out there if they're playing Cover-2 for example. While on TH's side, they may go to a 1/4 coverage, so the SS can shield TH from coming up in run support too much.

I don't know, that just my theory on it...

CaneRock

Gunter is listed as 6'2", 200 BTW...

------------------------------------------

I knew Gunter was a big CB but i have only seen highlites of his, TH I have seen him play and he is not a burner and he seems to know how to use that sideline as an extra defender and is very physical, he also has put on weight and strength so i figured he might be good there. What I can say is having this much raw talent in the secondary is a good problem and in another year or so we will have the right depth and ability to contend on D with anyone.

Posted by: Hassan | August 09, 2012 at 09:24 PM

I hear ya'. My concern with the secondary this season is the SS spot. Assuming that Bush is a lock at FS, do you really think Telemaque or Rodgers can man that spot for an entire season...

Hassan

Rodgers can do it from a ht/wt/speed standpoint but from a FB standpoint he has to show me. Until he shows me then I would put something else back there. Our backline will be sick after another year.


Question who in the Canes Family would you consider kicked out of the family?

Hurtt could be in that group, I might wait for the facts to come out. Randy Shannon is a true Cane, being a bad coach does not get you kicked out. Although he was stealing checks for 4 years. Sapp is an idiot but still a Cane for me.

Hassan...good to see U in BLUE!

Good comment and stats from U today.

Hassan

Howard traded to Lakers......We got a washing machine and draft picks

tjl3909

I'm still mad a Rodgers for the play he could have made against FSU-had a clear interception in the end zone and FROZE! not sold on him

TonyCane

That's a difficult question, Hassan. It's hard to think of anyone of the top of my head who should be kicked out of the Canes Family. Agreed on Shannon, although it baffles me that our team could be so undersized when it came to strength and conditioning. I wonder if he expected his players to mostly have the same discipline that he did, and if they didn't...too bad for them?

Posted by: tjl3909 | August 09, 2012 at 10:56 PM

And that's why i'm sold on him cuz he replays that play in his head everyday and is looking for redemption

Willie Will in Nashville

Posted by: CaneRock | August 09, 2012 at 09:36 PM

Telemaque is starting at SS and Rogers is starting at FS, Bush is a back-up at SS

Her name is Alexia and her middle name "MIA", i had to get Miami in their some way some how loll...

I'm also a HUUUGE Patriots fan and happen to have lived my entire life "Up North" in Minnesota.

HE IS GREAT!!! GETTING SO BIG HE TURNS 7 MONTHS THIS SUNDAY,ILL GET A PIC UP SOON ON CANESPACE.THANKS FOR ASKING

Ohio_Cane

Music to my ears!!!


Golden: I thought we got a lot done yesterday. Conditioning is not really a factor anymore. We are starting to hone in on details of plays.

Ohio_Cane

Matt Porter - Canes definitely in the mix for Jay-nard Bostwick. His cousin is UM soph. LB Thurston Armbrister. Dad wants him to stay in-state.

Question who in the Canes Family would you consider kicked out of the family?

Posted by: tjl3909 | August 09, 2012 at 10:56 PM

I was pissed also, but I also realized he was in the right position; just reacted slow (probably thinking). I think this year, he'll be in position and react much faster

BigTimeCane

Tony cane pretty interesting year 1 and year 2 records. Hopefully he is closer to the undefeated record but with youth and everything I doubt it.

Thats my point too, at least he was in the right position unlike some of our players

LOL! Good. The changes they go through the first two years is phenominal

CaneRock

Telemaque is starting at SS and Rogers is starting at FS, Bush is a back-up at SS

Posted by: Willie Will in Nashville | August 10, 2012 at 01:43 AM

Thanks. I like Rogers at FS, and I like Bush's natural physicality and versatility at SS. Unless Telemaque plays out of His mind, I don't know.

Felipe

In other words if my one and only "out of left field" prediction that Telemaque will be a backup by end of year is true, that should be worth some LOF love :P

j.w.

Great day to be a Cane, as always. Is the first scrimmage this weekend?

Willie Will in Nashville

Thanks. I like Rogers at FS, and I like Bush's natural physicality and versatility at SS. Unless Telemaque plays out of His mind, I don't know.

Posted by: CaneRock | August 10, 2012 at 12:27 PM

U welcome. If Telemaque doesn't Bush will be in quicker than he got elected in florida lol

8th Man in the Box

As much as I would like to see the next generation of Canes out there, I think I would find more satisfaction if players like Telemaque and SH finally live up to the potential. Although it would only be 1 or 2 good years out of them, it would let me know that Golden and staff are the right group to turn this program around.

8th Man in the Box

geesh...

RT @schadjoe: So LSU confirms Mathieu dismissed. Terrible news for him, LSU and college football fans. Will look at FCS schools.

I am sad to report that this morning my father lost his battle with Cancer. He was only 65 and was diagnosed only 2 months ago. He passed in his sleep this morning.

8th Man in the Box

Hassan, I sorry to hear about your lost. I pray that the Lord will fill the void left by your father; that he will grant you and your family with peace. I will continue to lift you and your family up in prayer.

God Bless!

Hassan I'm sincerely sorry for your loss. I've lost several family members including mom and dad. I know you're empty, dwell on those moments you and your dad shared together and know what gifts they are.

LB

+5000. Cancer stole my grandparents, aunt, one of my best friends, and mentor. Hassan, you're in my thoughts friend.
