Manny Navarro

Q: I didn't think the similarities were of the religious sort, at least not publicly for Shannon. Like all great coaches they both have a way of doing things entirely by their book. The players know exactly what is expected of them. Thanks for all the time you spend covering the 'Canes and answering questions. Posted by: DZ8 | August 19, 2008 at 07:36 PM

A: I wasn't knocking Randy for not being more religious. I just know that's such a huge part of what Dungy does. Randy definitely makes his point clear when it comes to what he expects from the players. So, in that regard I agree with you.

Manny wassup?

Any word on Bailey?

And who do you see as our top return man?

Thanks for all of your great coverage of our CANES!

Manny Navarro

Q: Manny, I know we all thing Marve is the starter but lets just say Jacory is named the starter, do u think Marve will transfer before Jacory, or do u think both will stay? Posted by: BROWNSUB | August 19, 2008 at 07:36 PM

A: Marve isn't transferring and he isn't going to be the backup. Jacory isn't going to transfer either.

Hey Manny love your work...ok I look forward to seeing Bailey become the beast he can be, with that do you think he has Calais sophmore type year? And with the possibility of Percy Harvin out for the first 2 games does it make much of a difference or is UF just as good without him?

CVS

Manny,
To answer your question about the last time a player took a short route and went the distance, the answer is Sinorice Moss, 2005, 92 yard touchdown against Temple.

Q: Do you see Marve or Harris transferring if either one is a continual starter? Thank you.

A: What's up Roach. Bailey has been dressing fully and working off to the side. But he better be practicing by Sunday or he won't be playing in the opener.

CVS

Manny,
I see my question was already posted: Here's a new one.
Q: How healthy are Bailey and Moncur? Do you see them waiting for the UF game (or game 2)?
- CVS

Carlos

Q. Given how we've gradually drifted away from this weapon over the last 2 years, do you expect to have more of an involvement regarding TE's in our offense by Nix from what you've seen at practice?

roachcane77

Here's another quick one... what about Richard Gordon at DE if we have bunches of injuries there?

A: If he's healthy, Bailey can be a beast. He's so strong and fast. How that translates into beating UF though is a stretch. Is it official that Harvin will miss the UM game? If so, obviously that helps the Canes.

Hey Yo!

Manny,

Is Sam Shields going to finally be the go to receiver this year or what? The offense always looks that much better when he's in the game.

A: Thanks for the memory CVS. I honestly couldn't remember. I think the only way Marve or Harris transfers is if Randy tells them to.

Manny Navarro

OK guys. Got to run. Practice is ending.

ChicagoCane

Manny....have you heard anything on cookie bucannon this spring? Also, any recruiting news or updates that we should be watching for?

ChicagoCane

True dat Mandingo.....I will hit you up with that question next time.

SOUP

Roach...the REAL question is that if we have had so many injuries or just lack of depth at DE then why Gordon isn't back at DE instead of TE?

The answer must be that he is NOT a DE. Not agressive enough? Manny???

SOUP

And that is the BEST LIVE chat U have ever had! Nobody rocks the B L O G like the Mandingo!!!

ecane30

It looks like the possibility of Harvin out for at least two games is very real...

86, my LOTF08 wasn't on the latest version...just making sure u still have it lol..

RT6

Wut up Spacers!!!!! After a long summer where I found myself in Vina del Mar Chile and Indianapolis coaching womens gymnastics, needless to say, I have been really busy and unable to contribute to the blog. With classes a week away, I finally have some time to sit back and enjoy it now.....
As for my question for Manny, who have you seen that looks like they have had the biggest change physically whether it be more or less?

Also, need a new blog named seeing as I no longer reside in RT6.....I was thinking Art Vandelay LOL

ChicagoCane

Are you in latex sales RT6?

roachcane77

So RT6, you're an architect then?

tptp79

Manny, whats going on with Sam Shields. He is the only guy with experience we need him to step up this season.

roachcane77

I agree on SS... he's a (941) kid. (Sarasota)

He'll step up... I think he FINALLY gets "it."

RT6

Naw....Marine Biology

SOUP

RT6...good to see U back in action!

U missed all of the summer action and free tics opportunities.

AvaCane96

RT6! wut up dude! lol it's been a while...almost time for kickoff!

Ronny

Manny, how come we don't hear much from Arthur Brown? Is he just a quiet guy who doesn't like media attention? Also, who do you see being the next commit for the Canes?

dlu

Missed Manny.

SOUP

Missed Manny.

Posted by: dlu | August 19, 2008 at 09:07 PM

The two saddest words ever spoken...

dlu

by the way you do not have my picks on there. marve and bailey.

SOUP

Ronny...The Mandingo is long gone. U have to show up on time or fuhgetaboutit!

4thQtr

Tonights Scrimmage:
Guys it appears that Sleeping Giant has awaken.

The Offense did extremely well.

Leonard Hankerson had a huge day. He caught three 30-yard plus touchdown passes, two from Marve and one from Jacory. Two of them were fly patterns. One was a bubble screen that he took to the house that was the final play of the scrimmage, about 40 yards.

Derron Thomas had the other touchdown for the offense. He caught a pass and took it 20 yards for a score.

Shawmbrey McNeal had a 50-yard run.

CVS

SOUP/86,
Here are my two picks
McCarthy on defense
Orlando Franklin/Jason Fox on offense
- CVS

CVS

4thQtr, is this legit news or are you typing in stuff from your NCAA 09 videogame? How do you know this?

solarcane

4thQtr

The other great thing about this year practices and Scrimmages is that it's not only a couple of players that are performing. Now we must see how that they perform during games. I Must say it looks exciting and I can't wait to see the U on the field. GO CANES!

solarcane

wtf.... I don't feel tardy

peace

orange 'n green in the vein

Hankerson is my boy! Time to break out the hurricane warning flags MF'ers!

86, WTF? I've got Marve and Fortson for my LOTF 2008 picks this year, yet I still don't see me in your list! Didn't I put a pick on the blog first?

CVS the things that I post are from actual Practices or Scrimmages. I don't own a video game.....don't have the time.


solarcane

dunno if this was posted.

Did anyone mention who helped Javaris James with his passing catching over the summer?

Javaris said Lamar Thomas worked with him on his hands,
Kellen WinslowII, Chad Johnson and Reggie Wayne all spent time helping him with his receiving this summer.


peace

SOUP

I'm soooooo tired...

solarcane

One Senior on the team was asked who are the hardest hitters on the team.

4thQtr,
You are a lucky man for knowing the practice results...I'm the only Canes fan here in (gulp) Notre Dame (south bend, IN). Do you know what it's like trying to talk football with these kids? I've at least managed to get several kids to admit that 2001 UM was the greatest team of all time.

Guys don't be shocked by this, but U know that Randy loves to play it close to the vest.

Randy Shannon said he may wait until Monday to announce the starting quarterback.

solarcane

I'm soooooo tired...

suck it up.. no excuses
peace

4thQtr

Another bright spot: Freshman Thearon Collier showed he can be a big-time playmaker as a punt returner – he took one attempt back 40 yards, breaking two tackles along the way.

"We have another Devin Hester out there," defensive tackle Joe Joseph said of Collier. "He's real good."
