Sheldon Richardson would be a huge fill for a huge need of ours at tackle.

People under estimate the Tackle position but it is probally the most important position on defense and the second or third most important on the O.

We are recruiting him as a TE.

My feeling is a couple guys have turned down the job, which keeps Randy out on the road.

Like Six said this season's coaching staff is going to make or break Randy. He is running out of mulligans.

Some people on here think it is going to be a few more years until we are an above average team nationally.

Some think we will rise quickly and be a force by 2010.

The longer the U has the persona of an unstable program the harder it will be to get quality coaches to consider working here.

A winning tradition kept us in the coaches and recruits limelight for a lot of years.

It was 2003 that we were going to breeze through the ACC and win it every year.

That was a long time ago by Cane's fans watches.
The mob is going to be at Randy's door sooner than later if we don't vastly improve.


I have a lot of confidence in Shannon and think he's doing the best he can.
I'm one of the ones that thinks we are a real contender in about 4 or 5 more seasons, with or without Randy.

I say we use sheldon richardson as a tight end. We are lacking in the super star tight ends as well.. The kid can play football. When Chud come back he will turn those tight ends into the best of the best.

58, other than Scout calling him a TE what makes you say that?

Seems like another Allen Bailey in the respect that, he wants to be one position, but the reality is he really should play at another.

I can think of a former Cane TE who should have a talk with Sheldon about becoming a DT.

58Staight,

True, but if we need him two play both way to win, I believe he would.

BTW - I know the Scout headline says TE but on the prospect list they list Richardon as a DT.

He's 6'4" 270 lbs and runs a 4.7. Once he adds weight (which an 18 yr old will definitely do) that time could go up and at that weight you are already talking huge for a TE.

Boy is a player and I want him, I just don't see TE in his future.

I agree 100%, I do know for a fact however that the coaches are recruiting him to play TE here. Will he grow out of that? Possibly, but as of right now, their intent is for him to come in and contribute as a TE.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The University of Miami will now play three of its four 2009 nonconference football games in the month of October.

The Hurricanes will host defending Big 12 champion and Bowl Championship Series Title game participant Oklahoma on Oct. 3 at Dolphin Stadium. It will be the first time since 1986 that Miami has hosted the Sooners. Oklahoma and Miami last met during the 2007 season in Norman, Okla. The two teams met in the 1988 Orange Bowl in Miami, which resulted in a 20-14 UM win for the program's second national title. The Sooners lead the all-time series, 4-3.

Miami will host Florida A&M on Oct. 10. The Hurricanes lead the all-time series, 6-1. UM won the last meeting between the teams in 2006, 51-10.

Miami will travel to UCF on Oct. 17 to face the Knights. The Hurricanes won the first ever meeting between the two schools last season, 20-14, at Dolphin Stadium.

Three of the four game dates are changes. UM was originally scheduled to face Florida A&M on Sept.5, Oklahoma on Sept. 12 and UCF on Oct. 3.

That only means we will play Acc teams right off the back . IMO that will only help us get ready For OU and the rest of our nonconference opponents. Thee ACC championship is all the line early this year...I can dig that.

Mr Troutman

The ACC chapionship title is on the line earlier this year I mean...

F... it I'm tired, screw my Writing and my broken English.

solarcane,


Haven't RS done everything to turn around that persona which you say - "The longer the U has the persona of an unstable program the harder it will be to get quality coaches to consider working here."

We gave Coker 4 years while the program was heading south every year. So, why the indirect emphasis on giving him less time to turn things around (things that Coker messed up) especially when there has beem improvement every year under his watch.

Midwest Cane, I am with your big fella.
Coach em up and teach em right! All the talk of how tight the ship is being run, well then bench somebody's butt when he blow an assignement.
For the record, JJ was/is a talent evaluatiing somebody! Not everyone can judge that well. And the position changes of the past were because there was RECONGIZED advantage to moving a player.
Not just a need move or because of injury move. And most of the guys who switched were/are freaks and once of a kind athletes.
The whispers are beginning to say "Peole want RS job and want him to fail or affraid he will fail". Is he really "in" the coaching Fraternity and is he well respected? I like them but I can see the point being made about established relationship and friends.

Gloat all U want gator bait...All good things come to an end. Too bad once we start winning big again we wont come to U all site because by then we can care less what U guys are doing. Life before and after Tebow leaves will start the dreaded downfall. Oh yeah we'll see how U all handle not having Percy back this year does to the offense. Tea-bag can't do it all himself without his go to guy.....U just wait and see!

Mr Troutman

Just like how Obama took the highest office so will Shannon one day soon on the football field. The south without rednecks have risen by the way. The ole south is washed up dude. As far as I am concern all confederate boys can go to hell.

solarcane

mid,
I think you misunderstood what I meant, or I didn't say it properly.
what I was pointing out was:

A starting quarterback transferring because he can't play for his head coach

A DC that leaves after one year saying he is homesick.

A search for an offensive coordinator that seems to be taking awhile

If you're a Miami fan you can shrug these off and hope things will get right

If you were an outsider looking at the program right now what would you honestly think?

Was that a redneck haiku I just read? Wait a minute... where did it go?

OK! I get it. Typepad's TSA's agents have flagged me as dangerous and need to conduct a thorough investigation before I am allowed access again.

Hell, by that time the Canes will have won a ring for the other hand!

Go Canes!

The above post was a result of my previous post "being flagged".

So, what happened at 3P today. It appears as though everyone left to search for two new coordinators and haven't returned yet!

Go Canes!

One day I don't come on the blog and look what happens.

Solar pulled the, "mom and dad won't know if I'm gone if I put a few stuffed animals under the covers and sneak out for a while trick."

It worked pretty well. Only thing is, dad (Soup) had to remind him to pick up his sister after school and then realized he'd been had!

Now, the question is, what would RS do 'bout this?

Go Canes!

solarcane

The academics department is speaking out against the athletic department lavish spending on coaches at Tennessee. The chickens are coming home to roost.

I have the biggest PR event in the history of The Space last night. Signs up in front of 10,000 fans, t-shirts thrown into the crowd, 100s of business cards given out...

and then Solar breaks the blog. 100s of new bloggers come on the site post a comment and NOTHHING. Never to return. Nice!

pb(CSROH09)

Interesting from Bruce Feldman. Hadnt heard a couple of these angles:

Don't be surprised if Randy Shannon goes after Rutgers offensive coordinator John McNulty again to fill his vacant offensive coordinator spot. There are rumors that Shannon also interviewed former K-State coach Ron Prince on Tuesday. I've heard that former Jets assistant Noel Mazzone has tried to make a run at the job as well. Mazzone is close to UM tight-ends coach Joe Pannunzio and also has the support of Federal Express founder Fred Smith, a potentially big Miami booster who is also the father of backup Canes QB Cannon Smith.

"now I know how Rudy feels"

So you broke the blog AND swallowed a whole keg?

Six

Robert Marve was seen and talked to at the Lightning hockey game, full glass of "adult beverage" in hand, looking very happy ... said he was seriously looking at Oklahoma State.

Funny. Wonder how many of the other Cane players are out getting their drink on.

Kid needs to wake up and get slapped in the face with an anti-knucklehead stick.

SOUP

Solar...even I was BLOCKED! I had to go into the site and fix it myself. I went into the Control panel and removed several blocks that you had implemented today. I was off blog, sister in town from Maui. It's OK, I just blamed her too.

solarcane

dj lol!

I think one of the flux capacitors died.
