Thanks TJL!

Awesome stuff. Unfortunately we lost another player for the year as Trayone Gray tore his ACL!

Would have been a stretch

trianglecane

So Homer will probably play this year due to the gray injury.

CoCane

Maybe a blessing in disguise for Gray. He'll get a medical redshirt this year. If Walton leaves after his junior year Edwards and Yearby will be gone too as seniors. Gray will be a redshirt senior. That will be his best chance to be the man. I hope everything works out for him...

Co those were my thoughts exactly. I hate to see him get injured I just hope it turns out to work for the kid.

Oh there's a vault and vault security is tight. If you have been vaulted you must follow vault protocol to retrieve vaulted material from the vault unless you piss off the vault master in which case said vaulted material may have been vaulted from the vault without explanation...

Players emerging

Over the past few practices, a few guys have really started to assert themselves and show their talent. Hopefully, it carries into the scrimmage and the season.

Malcolm Lewis is consistently making plays. He looks as confident as I've ever seen him and he's really starting to attack the ball. Physically, his routes have some pop and he has his deep speed back. Hope to see it continue.

Trent Harris has been great all camp but is really stepping up lately. In the past few days, he's had numerous sacks and pressures, a diving interception, a huge forced fumble and a batted down ball in coverage. Harris is just a good all-around player who is thriving in the new system.

Zach McCloud is really seizing the opportunity at linebacker with Grace in limbo. He is a missile sideline-to-sideline and has a habit of launching himself head-first into opposing offensive linemen. If he stays healthy, his ceiling is as high as anyone's.

The future of the TE position is in good hands. Michael Irvin II has probably seen more targets than anyone on the roster. The backup QBs look to him first because he is so savvy and QB-friendly. Jovani Haskins is more physical than I expected. He's very strong at the point of attack and has pancaked multiple defenders. He's still learning the position (former QB) but has made some spectacular, one-handed catches and displayed great potential as a receiver.

Malek Young is flashing with multiple INTs over the past few days. He started off camp going against the walk-ons and is now getting reps with the second unit. The more chances he gets to compete with the big boys, the better he will look. The 4th corner spot is wide open and Young has as good a shot as anyone.

OFF TOPIC WARNING:

Cushman & Wakefield released their inaugural Florida Population Report, an examination of population trends and its economic impact in Florida.

The report, compiled by Cushman & Wakefield's Research Team, analyzes population growth, employment levels, home values and retail sales activity in Florida's eight major markets – Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Lakeland (Polk County), Miami-Dade County, Orlando, Tampa-St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach. It issued a statewide report and individual reports for each of the eight markets.

Key report findings

Florida's population will reach 20.7 million by the end of 2016. In 1910, the state had a population of 1 million people; by 1980 it grew to 10 million. Since then, the population has doubled.

Florida's population grew 1.84 percent in the past year, trailing only North Dakota, Colorado and Nevada as the fastest-growing states. Florida trailed California (39.14 million) and Texas (27.5 million) in overall population.

Florida's population grew by more than 1,000 people per day, a pace that has accelerated over the past year. Jobs are the No. 1 reason people are attracted to the state. The trend is driven, in part, by economic challenges in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico's population declined 1.7 percent over the past year, with most exiting residents settling initially in Florida.

For the past 38 months, Florida's job-growth percentage has exceeded the national average. In the past 12 months, 244,500 new jobs were added, a 3 percent growth rate. Most new jobs supported the expanding healthcare, logistics and home construction markets. Retail and hospitality also contributed to the state's employment performance.

Current home prices in Florida were down $42,000 compared to fourth quarter 2006 values. Prices have rebounded since bottoming out in 2011, however, rising by an average $83,000 in the span of five years. Tight supply and pent up demand are driving price increases and pace of sales.

Retail sales continued to highlight consumer optimism and a favorable local economic climate. Florida's economy enjoyed elevated consumer confidence despite uncertainty at the national level caused by the upcoming presidential campaign.

"Florida remains a national leader in population growth," says Chris Owen, Florida research manager. "This is driven by excellent employment numbers, lagging home prices and favorable consumer sentiment. We foresee this optimism prevailing in the short term."

Feel really bad for Choc's injury and I wish him a speedy recovery.

AR's injury has me more worried from an impact perspective though, because he was projected to be contributing way more, and we are thin at a WR.

WHERE DO I GET THAT CHEERLEADER ON THE FAR LEFT?

CaneRock

Some discussion was had about potentially starting 3 true freshmen on defense.

Remember, the 2008 defense started Forston,Spence, & Brandon Harris that I can remember, and that defense gave UF fits. So true freshmen, given the talent, can have an impact.

TheeMackJones

Any college pigskin doesn't like to learn of injuries, but it is a contact sport after all and whatnot. Which leads to my next simpleton notion. Why all this chatter of Miami going ' 10-2 or even 11-1 '? Yes I understand the notion of being positive about the Canes and whatnot. But with the recent injury report coming out of Camp Rich and whatnot. Cane record matters could go south quicker than a NYC minute. hUh

Oh, and one more thing. The regular season ain't even started yet, and that's when the full contact spectrum really begins for real and whatnot. That's why I still SEE-r MY Hurricanes finishing the season 9-3 and finally winning a bowl game. In other words, Miami is ' depth thin ' at certain positions and a crucial injury could put Rich and staff in DIRE STRAITS. If U Know What I Mean. dUh

Rail thin at CB and raw as eggs at LB, other wise 9-3 sounds about right and then make it 10-3 with a bowl win.

BigWindyCane1

Per Barry, Manny Diaz: "You have to be able to get to the quarterback, and we feel we’ll be able to do that better this year,” Diaz said. And “to be one of our corners you have to be able to [play press]. Sheldrick Redwine, Corn Elder and Adrian Colbert have that ability. The first defense we called in spring and in fall was bump and run man to man.”

1mg Of Epi

So no spot drop?

BigWindyCane1

More Barry

• A UM official who has watched practices said (before Ahmmon Richards' toe injury), there was reason to feel much better at receiver than UM did a month ago: Stacy Coley has been great on double moves and impactful and developed great chemistry with Brad Kaaya; Braxton Berrios is consistent; no player at any position has been appreciably better than Malcolm Lewis; Dayall Harris has been better than expected before a couple of drops this week; before his injury, Richards has been catching everything thrown his way (“he runs like a horse; he’s going to develop into a top player in the country,” Redwine said); and Sam Bruce dashed by a corner and safety for a long catch the other day…

If Mullins qualifies and Richards can stay healthy, the Canes should be fine at WR

CoCane

Coley is the key to the WR group. He must stay healthy all year.

I'm going to use that formula for figuring out Terrance's motel reservation madness

Terrance Sullivan

Hehehe

Ohio_Cane

Dmoney at CIS:

Scrimmage two thoughts

Pretty exciting scrimmage. Both sides had their moments and the competition level was high. Like before, it was 1s versus 2s.

Brad Kaaya was dealing. He hit beautiful passes down the field to Coley and Berrios and was accurate with his shorter throws, allowing his receivers to catch the ball with momentum and run after the catch. He took what the defense gave him and had several solid gainers checking down to Yearby. His only mistake was an attempted heave out of bounds under pressure that landed in Malek Young's lap for a pick.

The backup QB situation is still up in the air after an unproductive day. Malik Rosier missed some wide open targets and Evan Shirreffs never got going. All four guys were live (the defense could hit them) and Shirreffs was impressive running for a couple first downs. I would give him the edge over Rosier based on decision-making, height and consistent accuracy. They are closer than you'd think in terms of athleticism.

The running game was better than last scrimmage. Mark Walton looked decisive running the ball and took a RB screen to the house from about 30 yards out against the 3rd team. Gus Edwards and Joe Yearby had some decent gainers and contributed in the passing game. The eye-opener was Travis Homer. He had a long run against the 1s that he broke up the middle and popped outside. Very good speed (best in the RB group) and good toughness for a true freshman. He reminds me of Ryan Mathews in terms of his size, straight-line speed and running style. Marquez Williams caught a TD during red-zone work and freed up Walton on another crushing block.

The starting receivers all showed out. Stacy Coley caught a deep ball TD on a nice adjustment and another TD on a catch and run for about 20 yards. He looks like a senior. For most of camp, Braxton Berrios has surprisingly looked better on the outside than in the slot. He is great at tracking the ball and has enough strength to win battles out there. Dayall Harris had two TDs on catch-and-runs and looks to be solidifying the starting spot at split end. Ahmmon Richards got a handful of snaps but needs to rest his toe. Sam Bruce had a first down on a swing pass where he showed good burst. I didn't see Malcolm Lewis out there so I suspect he's nicked up.

The tight ends were fairly quiet. David Njoku and Chris Herndon both had moments where they fought for extra yards but otherwise they took a backseat tonight.

The first team offensive line gave Kaaya plenty of room to work, but the second and third team struggled. That's been the story of camp for this group. There were too many big TFLs and easy sacks given up by the backups.

The defensive line made a lot of big plays, as usual. Gerald Willis was the star and had multiple TFLs and a couple sacks. He made plays against both the 1s and the 2s. Anthony Moten also flashed some quickness blowing up a couple plays in the backfield. Chad Thomas and Al-Quadin Muhammed were strong against the run and each chased down a couple plays from the backside.

Linebacker is getting into dangerous territory depth-wise. Without Mike Pinckney and Darrion Owens, this group is thin. Shaq Quarterman is special and Jermaine Grace had a good scrimmage, but the other LBs looked overmatched at times. Jamie Gordinier does a solid, reliable job and should start at WILL if Pinckney and Owens don't heal up.

The starting safeties were good, as they have been all camp. Jaquan Johnson was particularly productive-- he came in on dime situations in the box and was very active, including a sack and a pressure. I'm still waiting for someone to emerge from the freshmen. Cedrick Wright just got here and is way behind, but his quickness and instincts popped on a couple tackles he made. He is one to watch. Robert Knowles had a very rough day tackling and may still be hurt.

The corners were solid. Corn Elder, Sheldrick Redwine and Adrian Colbert are a strong top three. Colbert impressed me by flying from across the field and making multiple tacks outside of his zone. He has 4.4 speed and he competes. Malek Young intercepted an ill-advised Kaaya pass and continues to make plays. I would like to see him moved to the next level of competition so he's covering guys like Coley every day in practice.

Overall, I like what I saw. The different between this team and past teams is QBs, playcaller, DL and DL coach. We are now strong at all four of those spots. That will take you far in college football.

Mr. Moneymaker

To answer Raize's question, Yes Lochte is going to go down as one of the dumbest Gators ever.

Hey TSully... I know you are going to be at the home games, and in Atlanta, but will you be in Bama for any games just watching on TV? If so, I might come down and join you

Terrance Sullivan

The Canesspace Home Game Hotel is the LA Quinta Inn Fort Lauderdale Plantation 8101 Peters Road Plantation Florida 33324 for all home games except Homecoming against Pitt that Game it will be the La Quinta Inn Fort Lauderdale Plantation 7780 SW 6th Street Plantation FL 33324.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike add NC State to my travels as well LOL. But seriously let's meet up in like Birmingham for one of the Games this Year. We will figure out a Game. Maybe either Notre Dame or Virginia.

UMike

tSully... sounds good. I most likely will not be making it to any homes games this year.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike I will be missing the North Carolina Home Game because my best friend is getting married that day. But yes Notre Dame game on October 29th would be ideal we could meet at a Sports Bar in Birmingham.

Terrance Sullivan

And if the Notre Dame Game doesn't work then we can go with the Virginia Game on November 12th.

UMike

Ok, yea one of them will work out. How far is Birmingham from Chattanooga, do you know?

Terrance Sullivan

UMike it's 2 Hours. It's also 1 and a half from me. So it's the central most city between us that has tons of sports bars and stuff.
