86... I understand what you mean...but with the pro day going on and the success there it was normal for experts to make those comments and for someone to share it...I dont think there was any intent to start anything...at least in my opinion. You should be proud us haters didnt take it and run, and it didnt ignite anything...#progress haha

On this we are in absolute, unquestioned agreement.

Stories like this make both mad & sad. At least the killers are in jail for a long time. The Bryan Pata case, however, is still unresolved. In all likelihood, his killer(s) will never be brought to justice.

Well done on the article, Soup.

From DMoney at CIS:


Final spring observations

Below are my observations from the practices, scrimmages and spring game:

QUARTERBACK

Don't let the vanilla spring game fool you: Brad Kaaya has been lights out. He knows where to go with the ball, his completion percentage is sky-high, and his impeccable ball placement allows the receivers to run after the catch. Some of his red zone throws were legit jaw-droppers. He's the best player on the team by a good margin.

Malik Rosier is still too inaccurate for me. When he misses, he misses high and by a mile. In fairness to him, these no-contact practices don't highlight his best attribute, which is running. Rosier also played best in scrimmage situations, which suggest he may be a gamer. But the accuracy needs to get much better if he wants to be a legitimate Miami quarterback. Watching Rosier makes you appreciate how easy Kaaya makes it look. It should be noted that the team switches to a read-option offense whenever Rosier is in the game.

Vincent Testaverde is still learning the offense and takes too many coverage sacks. But when the ball comes out, it's better than Rosier's. Testaverde has a pretty good arm and shows nice touch on bucket throws. If he improves his mental game, he has a chance to be decent.

RUNNING BACK

There's no Duke on the roster, but this position should be fine. Gus Edwards won the most improved offensive player award and he deserved it. He's finally learning how to run with leverage and power. Once he gets in the open field, he's very fast for his size. You know what you're getting with Joe Yearby-- he runs hard, he has excellent feet and he'll always make the first man miss in space.

Trayone Gray is starting to get comfortable at running back. Some of his jump cuts have been Duke-esque. However, he continues to have fumbling problems. If he can fix those, he'll bring a much-needed gamebreaking element to the RB corps. Walk-on Collin Alford won't play but he's a solid player with some quickness.

WIDE RECEIVER

No worries here. Rashawn Scott and Stacy Coley emerged as the clear-cut top guys. Coley didn't make the splash plays, but he was very consistent. The big plays will come if he continues to work hard. Malcolm Lewis and Braxton Berrios were reliable and QB-friendly over the middle. Herb Waters is not as consistent as a senior should be. He needs to do a better job finishing plays and winning contested balls. It'll never happen, but the best thing for him would be a move to corner. I've always felt it was his natural position.

Tyre Brady and Darrell Langham aren't there yet, for different reasons. Brady can separate but can't catch. Langham catches everything in his area but can't separate. Of the two, I think Langham has the better chance to contribute as a red-zone specialist.

TIGHT END

This position will continue to play a big role in the offense because of Kaaya, but Clive Walford will be missed. Standish Dobard dropped too many balls this spring. He's a great blocker, though, and a load after the catch. Chris Herndon is going to play a major role. He's very football savvy, he lines up all over the field and he runs well. David Njoku didn't play at a big-time high school like Herndon, and he's a little behind in terms of football IQ. But athletically, he's as good as there is on the team. Njoku made some spectacular catches this spring and runs better than any Canes tight end since Jimmy Graham. He'll be a star sooner than later.

Jerome Washington reminds me of Richard Gordon: a unique size-speed athlete who can't catch. He's probably a year away, although he's physically ready to contribute.

OFFENSIVE LINE

This is the weakest position on the team. There are only four guys who I'd trust in a game. Nick Linder is rock-solid at center and was the most consistent lineman all spring. Trevor Darling has some bend and balance issues, but is still a quality tackle. The group got a huge boost when Kc McDermott came back. He reminds me a lot of Zack Martin. He can play tackle because his balance and technique are so good, but at guard he has the potential to dominate. Danny Isidora is a solid player who occasionally struggles with size. I think his best position is center.

After that, it's ugly. Alex Gall is a major disappointment. He doesn't play with the strength I expected coming out of high school. Despite his improvement, Sonny Odogwu is still not ready for FSU or Virginia Tech. He really struggles with pass blocking after initial contact, mostly because he doesn't move his feet. Hunter Wells has also improved but not enough. Joe Brown is a promising run blocker who struggles as a pass blocker. Jahair Jones is unplayable. We desperately need guys like Tyree St. Louis, Bar Milo and Ty Gauther to come in ready to contribute.

DEFENSIVE LINE

The talent is there. For the first time in years, we have a legitimate two-deep across the board. Mike Wyche has been a revelation this spring. He's slimmed down and is playing with a ton of confidence. There are different skill sets along the line: the athleticism of AQM and Chad Thomas, the steadiness of Trent Harris, the quickness of Anthony Moten and Ufombu Kamalu, the length of Jelani Hamilton. These guys dominated our undermanned offensive line from the first practice through the spring game. If the staff can't get this group to perform, they have no one to blame but themselves.

LINEBACKER

It's Jermaine Grace and everyone else. Grace is developing into a full-blown star who can cover, blitz and run sideline-to-sideline. Raphael Kirby has been solid but is not an impact player like Grace of Denzel Perryman. Darrion Owens plays hard and is one of the best size-speed guys on the team and he plays hard, but still hasn't had that major breakthrough. It could come in fall camp. Tyriq McCord has been a pleasant surprise at SAM and is much-improved in space.

With Perryman gone, this group really needs Juwon Young to take the next step. He is the only physical presense in a group of finesse players. He's steadily improved but still has room to grow mentally.

SAFETY

It's a similar story here. There is one front-line player (Deon Bush) and a lot of question marks. Dallas Crawford is physically limited. Jamal Carter has a questionable football IQ and doesn't tackle as well as he should. Rayshawn Jenkins is perpetually hurt or in the doghouse. Jaquan Johnson has the potential to be excellent, but his aggressive style will result in a lot of big plays (the bad kind) as he continues to learn the game. This unit needs Bush to stay healthy.

CORNERBACK

Solid group. Corn Elder is ten pounds away from stardom. He battled Coley all spring. Artie Burns is the best press corner on the team. Tracy Howard has been banged up but is a solid veteran. Ryan Mayes was a question mark after the departure of Antonio Crawford, but he turned in a quality spring. His length is an asset and he's gotten tougher. It's still a little thin, but there will be three freshmen competing for that fifth spot.

Overall, this is Brad Kaaya's team. If we protect him, he will carry us to more wins than last year. If the offensive line struggles, it could get ugly. Defensively, the talent is there. Whether the coaches can get them to execute the scheme is another story.

"Tyriq McCord has been a pleasant surprise at SAM and is much-improved in space."

I take up a lot of space, that has to count for something, right? But I have been told that my "gap technique" needs some work.

CaneRock

Watching our OLine, seems to me they need to consult with a martial arts expert, primarily somebody that's well versed in Centerline theory.

Be careful - "gap technique" and "needs some work" gets you awfully close to being banned around here. The only ingredient missing is "coaching staff".

Is there a street in Brooksville named after Jerome Brown? If not, there should be.

Tax day is looming and everything slows down through the end of the month spending wise. The folks that get nmoney back on their taxes file in January, the folks that have to pay taxes file in April. LOL

You can sign up for the dialy rate report, the rate DO CHANGE daily. Can you lock in your rate on your mortgage NOW? If so today is PROBABLY a good day to lock. Call your lender to see.

Go Canes

Good analysis by whoever that guy is.

We will go as far as Kaaya can take us this year. If we can't keep his jersey clean we are in big trouble.

If the o-line can gel, there is plenty of talent there albeit young, then I'll stick to my 10-2 prediction.

UMike

I know we are all about being positive here, but I cannot go with 10-2. A lot of questions and the staff hasnt proved they can win big games and have proved they will lose a game or two they shouldnt.

I've said it before, Im not sure what record would legitimately show improvement. If we go 8-4 or 9-3 but we beat teams we should, dont have an end of the year melt down etc that could be seen has a good season. I think we do beter than 6-7 for sure, but not ready to say we're a 10-2 team.

CaneRock

D-Money knows His stuff...He sounds like either He's around the team, or He knows somebody that's plugged in.

In any event, I would've liked to hear about the STs. STs can mask a lot of defeciencies in other areas.

I kind of think we'll go as far as our offensive line can take us. If Kaaya doesn't have time to throw, then we're doomed!! IMO we're going to have a rough time on the OL, unless we get a couple of freshman to step in, which is very possible.

thirstybuzzardcane

I really like our DL, I think they'll have a huge year, which will help the play of our questionable LB's.

The Dude

Posted by: UMike | April 02, 2015 at 10:31 AM

I think you're probably right. The best thing that could have happened for last year's team was for the season to end as the team was clearly lost. Al seems to have rallied them back up again, but if I had to guess, I'd say it wouldn't take much to lose confidence again.

I think the only spots that have to be solidified are the Guard spots. We have 2 bookend OTs in Darling & McDermott...some good depth behind em' in Odogwu & Johnson...and like you say, UM has some good looking freshman on the way in Milo,St.Louis.

But we'll see, it's still a ways to late summer & Fall practices.

Maybe, but if someone predicts 10-2 I am allowed to give my opinion as to why I dont think that will happen. And I didnt do it in a hateful way...now go sell houses lol

CaneRock

UMike...I think going either 9-3 or 10-2 with this schedule, would be exceeding expectations...so you & GoCanes are both right in a sense.

After FAU, I don't care what people say, this is a tough@$$ schedule.

Canezitis

Lenders checking on rates as we speak. Wish we could do a 15yr, but that's lil too spicy for my monthly payment. Thanks Soup.

UMike

CR...thats kinda what I mean...what if we go 8-4, BUT, there are no blow out loses, the schemes have changed or improved and we lost to only tough/good teams...wouldnt that be a good season coming off last year? That would signal a turning of the corner right?

Go Canes

IMO our defense and offense will be solid, but unspectacular.

We will find ourselves in similar situations as last year, in a position to win most if not all of our tough games in the 4th quarter.

Its there where I expect Kaaya to take the big leap.

If he does, we will win the games we gave away late last year.

UMike

Go Canes...I can agree with that...BUT....the correct plays have to be called for Kaaya as well. I hope we play more to win this year and less playing not to lose.

CaneRock

UMike...IMO, it's only a 10 game season to me, I ain't even stuntin' BC & FAU LMAO! But yeah, 8 wins would be the floor for this team, IMO.

But why is our schedule structured like that?...I see they only have 1 bye week, and then they have to play 9 straight. Don't we normally get 2 bye weeks?

Both could be on the 2-deep, or maybe starting, had they come in early (January). Since they didn't, it will be much more difficult, but both could play. If either has the mental aspect and playbook down, they could still get significant PT.

CaneRock

While I agree that Kaaya improving is critical to our hope for success this year, I don't think it's fair to put it all on Him.

IMO, the STs wasn't that good last year...we need a spark in the return game...our kicker(s) need to consistently pin teams deep.

Defensively, we need to do a better job of stopping the run...hopefully we pick up where we left off in the bowl game in that department.

CaneRock

Unless they move em' to DT, I expect Norton to challenge for one of the Guard spots...that kid can MOVE!

Miami and Everyone Else: What Single-Season College Teams Have Produced the Most NFL-Quality Players?

1. 2001 Miami Hurricanes

Record: 12-0, national champions

Players: Bryant McKinnie, Jeremy Shockey, Ed Reed, Clinton Portis, Phillip Buchanon, Sean Taylor, Jonathan Vilma, D.J. Williams, Antrel Rolle, Vince Wilfork, Frank Gore, Willis McGahee, Chris Myers, Andre Johnson

No other team is even in the conversation. The backups on this squad are what make it truly unbelievable. Vince Wilfork, Antrel Rolle, Frank Gore, and Sean Taylor couldn’t even start! Even if you discount the three future Hall of Famers (Reed, Wilfork, and Johnson) and the one who easily would have been (Taylor), you’re looking at 22 trips to the Pro Bowl. As in, 22! It’s the greatest collection of future NFL talent ever collected in one place, and it’s not particularly close.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^^I'm surprised that 91' Huskies team isn't on that list, that was a good damn team.

The Dude

This whole Steph Curry crossover on Chris Paul thing is so overrated. The only reason Paul falls is because he steps on Curry's foot. I think Curry actually lost control of the ball. Don't get me wrong Curry is a beast and deserves the MVP, I just don't understand why people think this thing is legendary.

The Dude

^^^ I guess it's a good thing twitter wasn't really around for Allen Iverson's prime, lol.

VA Cane

I think things are overall better; I hope we will see an improved team this fall.

As an expert in this game, my 2 concerns are the OL and DL...in that order. Only time and real competition will reveal the truth, but all good things start up front.
I am concerned about the speed, quickness, and athleticism of the OL. Past OLs....since the collapse in the Fiasco Bowl....Ohio State dominated our line beat them up bad....we have had some good...used sparingly here....lines but nothing to really write home about.
I dont want the Fat Boys and Chubby Checker, I want lean mean grading machines....big concern here. Poor drive blocks, weak pass block, poor reach blocks, slow pulls, chubby boys, shuffle their feet like a skid row wino instead of picking them up Roger Craig style.....I think things have passed Kehoe by.....not sure he knows what a good OL is.
DL has more depth...2 concerns here....penetration on the run....intense pressure on the passer....has to happen....do not think we are effective in a 3 front....never have run it never liked it never will use it...but thats me....

These 2 areas will make or hurt our chances of getting back in the mix.
JMO

VA Cane

Awesome CaneRock......nobody in the conversation....in the house, stadium, solar system, universe.....nobody close. you could add even more names...thats what I mean in my prior comment. Our OL DL personnel those years made it possible....combine the beasts of the pits and the incredible skill players........you win going away.

There lies my concerns....up front close and personal.....we must be strong and aggressive up front. JMO

The Dude

Posted by: VA Cane | April 02, 2015 at 01:30 PM

100% right about the OL. It's crazy how streaky they are though. They manhandled VT last year and did really well in other games but they also have 3 to 4 really bad games per year. I've wondered if this is just QB play, which is a HUGE part of taking sacks. Kyle Wright could have had 5 Bryant McKinnies and still would have taken a bunch of sacks. In fact, look at Dorsey's HS years. The reason Butch recruited him is because he never got sacked. Funny how he never really got hit in CF either, the kid just always got the ball out. I remember a quote from Frank Beamer about Dorsey; "He's a tough kid too, at least we think he's tough, we don't know because we can't get to him."

The Dude

QBs have be experts in what the OL is doing. It seems like it never matters who's blocking for Peyton Manning. Peyton will adjust the call to favor his protection. If the OL is getting beat, Peyton moves to quick throws. This is the thing that boggled my mind when the Patriots were undefeated in the SB against the Giants. The Giants were getting after it, yet the Patriots kept trying to establish a deep pocket.

If so, Mike wouldnt be selling so many shoes to these young kids lol...AI crossed him up nasty

The Dude

Of course, the number one thing that helped the 2001 OL was the shear talent of playmakers on the field. It's hard to stack a box when Shockey is playing TE or when Andre Johnson needs safety at all times. Opposing simply COULDN'T stack the box on Miami, they had to play back. This gave Miami an enormous advantage with talented backs like Portis, McGahee and Gore. The RBs essentially go untouched for 5 yards. This is why Alabama backs always put up yards, their OL keeps them clean for 5 yards and Bama is usually right at the top of yards before contact.

^^^ Here you go.

What make's those Bulls teams so great is that Mike and Scottie would D you the f*ck up. They took it personal, they wanted to embarrass people. No one in the NBA plays D like the Bulls did. AI was a problem off the dribble unlike anyone.

UMike

AI also did it while being MAYBE 5'11 and skinny as hell going against more aggressive defenses that you see in the NBA today.

The Dude

I've heard AI may be broke? But his agent got him a delayed payout for when he's 50? Something like that. I don't know why AI doesn't STILL do big time endorsements. He's a legend.

j.w.

Overall, this is Brad Kaaya's team. If we protect him, he will carry us to more wins than last year. If the offensive line struggles, it could get ugly. Defensively, the talent is there. Whether the coaches can get them to execute the scheme is another story.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | April 02, 2015 at 09:18 AM
Agree on his take on offense. Based strictly on his descriptions of the D, not seeing that the talent is really there, though. The DL appears to be much better, Corners are ok if not good, Safety and LB are big concerns, though. Time will tell.

CaneRock

AI was a tough lil' dude. I remember watching one particular game, where they said He was playing through about 15 different injuries.

VA Cane

Very good points Dude. Price was paid against OSU in Fiasco. Dorsey took a beating; we got lazy, they were good up front, and Coker let them get too high for 2 years. No matter how great you are, you still got to whip the horses to make them cry and sing (The Doors). We were bad up front, turned it over to the tune of 17 points and played a bad game. It should never have come down to thew last play; delayed call for sure, but I do not buy bad call....tough call....another story a lot of opins!!!

Had we played strong up front and not turned it over so badly.....we win going away. Instead that game cursed the program...beginning of the end.

So lets start new in 2015 and get after it!!!!!!
Go canes!!!!!!!

Hows that for positive outlook....!!!

### Here was Mayock’s assessment, some of which he shared with me when I spoke to him after UM’s Pro Day and some of which aired on NFL Network’s Path to The Draft tonight:

“Love Dorsett today. Typically when a guy has a big performance at the Combine, they rest on those numbers. So I was really surprised he was going to do a full workout. He did a 4.25 on my [stopwatch]. The fact he did everything he did today when he didn’t have to was amazing. He really helped himself. At the end of the day, as good a receiver class is, he could be a late one. He’s a phenomenal player.

“I watched Ereck Flowers go through positional drills. He’s so raw and so young but he’s so gifted. He’s big, he’s long, great feet. He’s a potential Pro Bowl right tackle. A lot of technique he will have to clean up. He will go somewhere in the first round.

“Perryman ran a 4.68 before he pulled his hamstring. He’s a very active linebacker. I think he will go in the second or third round. Some questions about whether he can cover people.

“Duke Johnson dropped his 40 a tenth. A solid second round pick.”

### Four NFL head coaches were in attendance: Joe Philbin, Sean Payton, Mike Tomlin and Todd Bowles. Payton and Saints officials dined with Denzel Perryman, Clive Walford and Phillip Dorsett on Tuesday night.... All 32 teams were represented today... Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey praised UM's talent level.

### Denzel Perryman, by the way, said he has gotten a “great feeling from the Dolphins” and was told they really like him. He could be a possibility at pick 47.

### This is the one day of the year when UM and Dolphins people publicly interact. Dolphins offensive coordinator Bill Lazor had a long talk with Al Golden, and UM offensive coordinator James Coley had a long talk with Hickey.

### UM’s second game of the season (at FAU) was moved up a day, to Friday, Sept. 11, to accommodate the Conference USA TV deal. The game will start at 8 p.m.

FAU declined UM’s suggestion to move the game to Sun Life. UM opens Sept. 5 against Bethune Cookman.

Spring hot seats: Top 10 coaches fighting for their jobs in 2015. http://foxs.pt/1GQlO79


4. Al Golden, Miami Hurricanes

Record at Miami: 28-22 (four seasons)

After taking a Temple program that was among the worst in the nation to respectability in the MAC, Golden seemed like a good fit to elevate Miami back into the ACC's elite. However, it hasn't worked out for Golden in four years, and there's plenty of pressure on this coaching staff in 2015. The Hurricanes are just 16-16 in four years in ACC play under Golden and finished 3-5 in league action last season. Talent certainly isn't an issue for Miami. However, this program is still looking for its first appearance in the ACC Championship Game since joining the league in 2004.

^^ That's not a negative post, either, and also is not slamming this staff or UM. It's a fact.

Go Canes

Who will it be?

3.875% with no points. That sound like a good deal for 30 year fixed?

But I have been told that my "gap technique" needs some work.

Canes playing Stanford. Looking to bring that NIT championship banner to Coral Gables.

Can't miss 7 shots in a row and not get any offensive boards and expect to win

The Dude

Just a bad, bad, bad finish to the half.

The Dude

32-21 Stanford for those who can't watch.

The Dude

Miami has to shoot better. Stanford has not been amazing. Miami just not clicking.

CoCane

McClellan 0-5, 0 points. You can't win with your best player doing that...

3.75% is the BEST available rate today, but only for the OVER qualified. That rate sounds good, lock it!

YUP, too much tension.

SOUP

If you wait another day it can way up or down depending on the JOBS report. Play the chances?

SOUP

Anything under 4% is still historically CRAZY low.

SOUP

GO CANES!!!

Where is OGV when U need him???

The Dude

mi@mic@ne

Stanford is the biggest bunch of lazy hackers ive seen us play..they deserve to lose...

The Dude

Stanford up 42-37. Miami clicking.

I agree, we'll see if it bites them.

mi@mic@ne

The ref should warn them to stop throwing elbows and fouling in the lane..this is why i hate teams who rotate guys just to foul...

The Dude

Tale of this game so far is cold shooting and defensive lapses. Miami I think is more athletic though. Canes need bigs badly.

The Dude

Bad call

The Dude

Make some shots!!! Come on!!!

The Dude

47-37 stanford.

The Dude

Just not falling enough.
