Where exactly can I get some pieces of the sky as they fall? I bet they'll be worth a pretty penny someday!

What will happen is another UM player gets injured??? OMFG!!!!!

dj moonbat

A guy named Cook, who couldn't stand the heat and had to get out of the kitchen. . .

Sad.

Canefantasy

u still got the tickets? ok sometimes this confuses me and although a stupid question important non the less to get straight in my mind. 86 is soup or soup is 86. these two people are the same guy right. Soup told me he had dukie tickets while 86 acts dumb. Its like 86(dr. Jeykel) and soup(Mr. Hide)..

Great title and blog 86!

We had to take them (including Marve) all together and see what shook out. Never expected to keep all 4 for 4 years. Also never expected to lose 3 of the 4 so quickly. Just means that this team is 100% Jacory's (even tho we all knew that when marve split). We can coach and develop Highsmith and recruit some younger studs the next couple of years who might've looked elsewhere if Cook had stayed. still think this wont impact the season greatly. Ojomo is a bigger loss than Cook.

They left.... WHO CARES. Move On...!!! We'll be fine at QB.

The only thing that changes is now the 2010 class may feature 3 QB's.

BEERicane

Uh.... I leave to go to a late lunch meeting and this is what happens? This is not good. I just hope that AJ is a legit backup at this point or we are one play away from disaster.

CaniaK

wow, what a shock

DZ8

The Randy just said he doesn't think we'll go after more than one recruit in this class. From what I've heard its not a great class for QBs, but also because this will space them out so we don't have 3/4 coming in at once. Then 2/3 leaving at once.

Ideally we'd like 4 scholarship QBs all spaced out a year, right?

solarcane

soup

nice!

peace

Canefantasy

okay soup you are driving me crazy.. we going to the game together or are you taking charlie brown..

j.w.

I'd agree with that DZ8.

86Cane

Fantasy...the Duke tickets have already been awarded. Sorry, U lose. U already have a t-shirt so???

dj moonbat

Miami's all-competition-all-the-time methodology has its downsides, too. Sometimes, you lose guys.

And I know there's a tendency to knock these guys for not wanting to ride the pine, but remember, if Brock Berlin hadn't felt the same way, we'd have had even WORSE QB troubles during the Choker era.

Canefantasy

i pushed the refresh button like 20 times to be first. I should get at least the opportunity to throw a hair dryer in the bath tub with you.

Canefantasy

I never lose. I am buying tickets to the game right now. haha looks like you lose my friend.

CoolRuler

Who was the backup QB on the 2000 squad? If you know the answer, then you are not worrying about qb depth this year.

86Cane

Solar...sorry I had to step on your feature article but the stuff hit the fan and we had to get to it QUICKLY. It's the way of the Internet!

Sebastian

I wish both of them the best of luck in whatever they decide to do

But I just dont get it with alot of kids now, is someone in their ear telling them they can be a star elsewhere and they will never get a chance here(or whatever college they are currently attending)

You guys are alot brighter and know alot more stats then I do, has there really been many players that have been been successful after leaving 1 program thinking they would get more playing time by going somewhere else?

86Cane

Ethenic Sands.

CHICKEN LITTLE

Worst worst case, RR and UM go to the Wildcat Offense and run roughshod over everyone, ala what GT did last year.

Posted by: miamimike01 | August 25, 2009 at 01:54 PM

Somebody else with some sense...

CoolRuler

That's it. I think Highsmith will do fine if called upon. If Sands could fill in, then we should all have faith in Highsmith too.

Canefantasy

Chicken little you seem to only come around when the sky is falling.

miamihurricane34

Cannon was too short anyways.
It sucks to see Cook leave, I thought he was really pretty good. I was impressed with him at the open practice. I thought that he could honestly compete for the starting job next year. I wish him well.
Highsmith = very very raw. Granted it was the first practice and he is young, but he looked pretty bad in that first practice, his passes were not on target. He might develop into a good backup, but he is not ready to step in if something goes bad.
We just need to try to pick up another QB recruit and we will be fine.

DZ8

Troy Aikman was probably the most successful. Joe Flacco has a chance. Those are the only two from the top of my head I can think of. Most of the time the players end up getting lost in the shuffle.

If U start running now, when are U going to stop?

CHICKEN LITTLE

we will be fine in the Qb department. I say we line up James in the wildcat with cooper on the run. put RAY Ray in as qb. some great trickery.. hey if it works for the nfl do it in college.

Posted by: Canefantasy | August 25, 2009 at 06:02 PM

him, too!

j.w.

Sebastian- Jevan Snead's decision worked out, but most don't. As for Canes who left- Bain's kid (can't remember his first name) is the only one I can think of who's stock increased after he transferred.

tru dat!!

solarcane


Is it a record to have three scholarship quarterbacks transfer in the same off season?

peace

Canefantasy

You know what it is. Randy Shannon is raciest.. two blacks stay three whitys leave.

(THIS IS A JOKE FOR THOSE OF YOU WITH NO SENSE OF HUMOR) just thought I would make it clear that there was sarcasm... lord knows CSM would think I was serious.. (another joke CSM)

we weed the people that dont want to be here out... my question to everyone is do we call on chicken little if Jacory struggles?? (again joke)

DZ8

j.w.

I also liked seeing Shannon step up in the Q&A with something other than, " Well Cannon and Cook were flying around..." out of here.

The evolution of a coach.

solarcane

So can COOK not play in the SEC the ACC the NFL or the NBA like Marve, or has the obvious fact he has talked to somebody somewhere not occurred to anybody?


peace

Canefantasy

ohhh good point solar.. he might be in alliance with Kiffin or Meyers.. just the coaches that cheat and break all the rules.

solarcane


I like Cook, always have,
I think he wants to play football right away.

I was real suprised Capt O turned on him so hard and called him names, after it was the Capt himself that said Cook would have a great career before he was done here.

peace

solarcane

If you played high school football with success in Texas there have to be lots of helping hands out side of college Head coaches to "help" you along.

I'm sure TexasCane has a few stories of 17 year old Texas all stars that were treated like royalty.

Cook goes home, gets to get on the field good for him.

peace

DZ8

I think they can go anywhere outside of the ACC.

canesteeler

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!Suit up amd compete with the players who want to be here. I am ready for the season to start!

RandyCane


Chicken Little sounds like he has had some football experience. I'm sure he would have beaten out Cannon Smith for the back-up QB position on the scout team and I'm sure he has thrown as many passes in a college game as Taylor Cook! LOL His record is unbeaten and he has not thrown an interception nor fumbled. As proven a QB as Taylor Cook.

Chicken Little is a great leader of men. LOL
I'm sure RS would love to have him on the team. In fact Chicken Little has sent some game tape to Coach Whipple already.

You go Chicken Little!!!!


Sebastian

I would be interested in what Whipple had to say about this situation

I have faith with him at the helm. If this was Nix then I would be reserving a spot on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge when the 1st QB draw was called
