I am selling my two to FSU. Upper deck, 20 yard line, UM side $100 each. Interested?

BigWindyCane

It appears this season, the Canes will have more ideal depth across the board. Offensive and defensive lines seem deeper, and the skill positions are deep as well. CMR seems happier with his current roster. We will see if it translates to success on the field this season

ColdCane

I'm going to the LSU game and I wanna sit with canes anyone have two tickets for sale before I go to stubhub or where is everyone sitting so that I can try to get tickets in the same section

Posted by: BigWindyCane | August 14, 2018 at 10:59 PM

We absolutely will have more depth. This will be the deepest team in at least a dozen years.

Coker had depth problems towards the end of his career because of an inability to recruit wide receivers and quarterbacks

Shannon had depth problems at the beginning of his career, over-recruited at QB in 2008, then lost all of his backups in 2009.

Golden had depth problems to start with resulting from a bad final Shannon class, the NCAA investigation, and severe roster churn.

Richt has brought stability and has slowly, methodically, and logically improved depth and talent across the board.

BigWindyCane

Absolutely TonyCane. CMR has steadily began to build depth. I feel really good about what the Canes have on their roster. It’s the deepest team since Butch was building depth here.

BigWindyCane

Good news you shared GC about our defense. Safety Jaquan Johnson and linebacker Shaq Quarterman were both named to the CBS Sports Preseason All-American team. Johnson received first-team honors, while Quarterman was placed on the second-team.

Go Canes!!

Wouldn't be surprised to see Reed and Scalife get more playing time as the season goes on. We definitely have somee pieces in place, but that o-line is still a work in progress:

▪ The starting offensive line Wednesday was, as has been the case, left tackle Tyree St. Louis, left guard Jahair Jones, center Tyler Gauthier, right guard Hayden Mahoney and right tackle Navaughn Donaldson.

▪ The second-team offensive line was true freshman left tackle DJ Scaife Jr, (who replaced George Brown Jr. because Brown injured his MCL and was scheduled for surgery on his right knee, per UM), left guard Venzell Boulware, center Corey Gaynor, true freshman right guard Cleveland Reed Jr. and right tackle Kai-Leon Herbert.

orange 'n green in the vein

Facts are he's a proven QB or RB (why not both?) on a national title contending team capable of pilling up big statistical season totals, which also describes 16 of the last 18 Heisman winners. So he's in a spot to potentially play his way to New York if he takes a step of development forward instead of off stage left immediately.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think he'll have a big season!

BigWindyCane

Rosier needs to be more consistent and accurate. To make it to New York, Rosier should have 65% completion rate and less than 7 interceptions, which are all doable this season with this Canes offense, this schedule and these weapons. Everything else will take care of itself

BEERicane

Kyle Wrirgt for Heisman.

Terrance Sullivan

Lol a Kyle Wrong reference.

Are the rumors true that Deonte Thompson wants to transfer from Florida to Miami?

Go Canes!!

Have no issue with Malik being there.

Said it before and I’ll say it again, just because he down right stunk for extended periods down the stretch doesn’t mean he can’t have a good to great upcoming season.

We’ll all see soon enough.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: TonyCane | August 17, 2018 at 08:14 AM

CMR will give this one a hard pass imo.

Terrance Sullivan

Lol the IPF has raised roughly 40 million at no point the IPF was 20 million come on man. Also Alabama thing is for the next 10 years and it's over several Sports. But keep on with that lame drivel you are trying to push. Apparently you didn't see the video or paid attention to all the things happening by the way if we are counting all the investment that helps Miami athletics in the within 2015-2020 it will be over a Billion Dollars so what's your point. TJL do better.

thirstybuzzardcane

Looks like Alabama is trying to keep up with Hard Rock Stadium! We have the best stadium in the country!

I was really upset when we left the orange bowl, but what we have now is amazing. University of Miami did the right thing by moving!

thirstybuzzardcane

IMO, The Rock is also louder than the OB!

BigWindyCane1

Don't let anyone fool you, this IPF is very very nice. I have seen other IPFs around the country, and this will definitely be one of the best after the construction is completed.

I encourage everyone to visit the Coral Gables campus, look at the Canes new IPF, new athletic facilities and other new construction going up, and then go compare IPFs at FSU, Clemson and other ACC schools, and make your own judgments.

I guarantee that if you don't believe the IPF in Coral Gables is better, you will at least agree that it is comparable, and no opposing ACC coach could use it to negatively recruit against the Canes.

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Big Windy!

Some facts on the the IPF

Terrance Sullivan

And now Miami saying they have raised 36 million for it hopes to raise 4 million more to finish making it completely state of the art IPF so the Final Price Tag is really 40 million. Sidenote Mr. Ross initially planned to put 450 million in 2015 into the Rock now its looking like the Final Price Tag will be 650 million when totally finished by 2020. Cost of doing bizness First Class!

All I know is it’s A LOT easier to spend money when you have money.

And the financial situation at the U is worlds better than it’s ever been.

Terrance Sullivan

Preach Go Canes!

Terrance Sullivan

All one has to do is look at the bleep Show the Athletic Program was in just 6 years ago in 2012. Blake James is promoted to AD in 2013 Jenn Strawley is promoted to Associate AD at the same time taking the job Blake had and let's see since then Adidas deal, IPF, hiring Of Coach Richt, renewing Coach L, Constant updates to Facilities, our Athletic Teams are performing at a very good level overall. Community service leaders, Academic success as well. Attendance up, Revenue up. Retention of Coaches is high unlike the previous 40 plus years where Coach Rentention was a turnstile no matter. Who was the president. Newsflash The President isn't only responsible for Athletics but all the Departments of the school which is several. That's the AD job and his or her Staff. Now next step is even more winning in all of our Sports. At least now I know if our Sports teams Win big I am confident we won't have 3rd world facilities we couldn't say that in the 70's 80's 90's 00's. Now back to the regular scheduled programming.

58 Straight

PREACH, TERRANCE, PREACH!!!

TonyCane

Totally agreed, Terrance

Terrance Sullivan

Hopefully there are no major injuries at tonight's closed scrimmage!

BigWindyCane

The second Fall Scrimmage ended. It was closed to the media, and took place at Tropical Park. I don’t see any stats that were released, but CMR released a statement summarizing the scrimmage.

Not much to glean from CMR’s statement, other than there were a lot of big plays on both sides of the ball. CMR seemed pleased with the 1st string offensive line, and CMR said that they ran the ball well. CMR also seemed pleased with the entire first string defense.

Terrance Sullivan

Thanks BigWindyCane!

Head Coach Mark RichtPost-Scrimmage Transcript – Fall Camp Practice #12

Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018

Tropical Park

On the second scrimmage of fall camp…

“A lot of touchdowns and a lot of interceptions. Big plays on both sides of the ball. It was kind of a big-play night. We ran the ball really well offensively, especially our number one group. I thought our offensive line played great with the ‘one’ unit [first string]. The ‘two’ unit had their moments, but not many. Number one defense pretty much dominated the day when they were in there, which is about what you would expect. Both sides of the ball, the number one groups did great. I’d say the ‘threes’ were about a wash. A lot of really great throws or a few bad judgment throws, with some of the younger guys. The balls were flying around tonight and somebody was catching it on either side of the ball. Overall, I was pleased with our camp. I think our coaches did a great job, I think our players did a great job.”

On what the staff wants to accomplish next week, before season opener preparation week begins for LSU…

“Wednesday is scheduled to be a ‘practice game’-type scrimmage. We’ll work on transitioning from scrimmage downs to kicking downs. We just haven’t done that, we’ve done it separately. Now, on Wednesday, we’re going to do it as it would happen in a game for the first time. We need that practice as much as the practice of the actual punts, the actual punt returns, kickoff and kickoff returns. We had a lot of field goal and extra point all camp. I’ll say this – the kids did a great job kicking the ball all camp. I’m really proud of the job of the snapping, the holding and the kicking tonight.”

3 RBs, maybe? Homer, Dallas and Choc? If so, that (along with an improved OL) would be very good news for the Canes hopes to move into the elite of CFB

JCane

Anyone new tested at TE, like one of the big WRs? With Irvin out and a lack of depth, would be necessary at some point I would guess. 3 headed monster? Love the teaser. Looking forward to 9/2.

The more fall practice moves along the more excited i get.

Rosier is making plays
Richards is back at 100%
1st team o-line seems to be developing,
Jordan looks to be the next mega beast at TE
CMR said the old school Canes would be proud of how we practice.

We are ready to complete and run the table all the way to Charlotte.

I set our Line at 12-2 for the Season and ranked #6 come January 10,2019. Let's see if we match that go under or over. Go Canes.

1) Clemson

2) ???

Terrance Sullivan

Go Canes I have no idea on the Second loss just have a feeling it will be a regular season loss. I have us winning the NY6 Chik Fil A Peach Bowl in Atlanta either against Penn State, Georgia, Auburn, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan, or Michigan State. I hope we obviously are better than 12-2 I hope we are 15-0 and ACC and National Champions. I think this is most likely scenario.

Go Canes!!

If I had to find potential regular season losses it would be:

FSU
At VT
At BC

Not sure which I’d rank as more likely.

Both QBs futile in LSU's final preseason scrimmage


Derick E. Hingle / USA TODAY Sports

If the final preseason scrimmage was any indication, LSU fans could be in for another long year in the quarterback department.

Both Joe Burrow and Myles Brennan struggled mightily Saturday, combining to go 15-of-43 for 167 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. They're the only two scholarship pivots left on the roster following the recent departures of Justin McMillan and Lowell Narcisse.

QB PASSING YARDS TD INT
J. Burrow 10-24 120 1 1
M. Brennan 5-19 47 0 1

Burrow came to the Tigers over the winter - bringing with him a great deal of fanfare - as a graduate transfer from Ohio State, where he served as a backup for the last two seasons.

Brennan was one of the top quarterback recruits in the 2016 class. The Tigers went to great lengths to keep him committed to the program after changing coaches partway through the 2016 campaign, but he's yet to live up to those expectations.

It's possible LSU could let its quarterback competition carry into the regular season. The Tigers kick off their slate with a blockbuster contest against Miami on Sept. 2.

BigWindyCane

More very good news from the scrimmage:

Malik Rosier played well in Saturday night’s scrimmage, as Robert Knowles told Canesport’s Matt Shodell at a UM community service event on Sunday. “He’s way better, great - he’s looking safeties off, executing well, throwing the ball excellent with good accuracy,” Knowles said. “He’s way better from last year.”

Travis Homer, DeeJay Dallas, Lawrence Cager, Jeff Thomas and Jhavonte Dean (two interceptions) were among others who played well. Bubba Baxa made all three of his field goals.

OSU news should be breaking very soon.......

BigWindyCane1

More good signs from Thomas Brown on TE, and RB:

During Saturday’s recent scrimmage, Jordan played every snap with the first team offense and offensive coordinator Thomas Brown was very impressed by the performance.

“Brevin flashed a whole lot on Saturday night,” Brown said on The Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM on Monday morning. “He made some highlight plays and caught the ball very well. He took every snap with the number one offense, which says a lot. He didn’t have that many missed assignments. He has done really, really good.”


Jordan arrived at Miami ranked as the number one tight end prospect in the country. He showed his ability to make plays in the passing game during his senior season, totaling 1,111 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman.


Brown has been pleased with the transition Jordan has made from high school to college.


“He is probably the most mature freshman that we have that is both physically ready and game ready,” Brown said.

“The number one unit on offense looked really good, probably the best that we have looked all camp as far as being on the same page and moving the ball down the field,” Brown said. “We had a couple of hiccups, we had one interception with the first unit that was just a mishap of where the ball was going.”

Brown, who is also UM’s running backs coach, admitted that he was also pleased with how the backs performed.

“I thought we ran the ball well,” Brown said. “Both Travis and DeeJay ran the ball well. DeeJay took most of the reps with the first team. DeeJay had around 12 carries while Travis had about seven.”

Senior Trayone Gray scored three touchdowns in the scrimmage, two with the first team and one with the second team offense. Over the past two weeks, it appears that Gray has secured a spot in UM’s playing rotation at running back.

“He put on some proper weight in the offseason and he has worked his way into great shape,” Brown said.

Go Canes!!

Dee Jay taking the majority of first team snaps?

Man do I love competition.
