Breaking News - Looks like the NCAA is looking into the eligibility of Bryce Brown.

If true, thank goodness we didn't sign him.

The Hurricanes spent more time on special team situations Tuesday and continued to put an emphasis on third down and red zone situations in 11-on-11 play.

McCarthy had a good day of camp, intercepting a tipped pass in 11-on-11 action after recovering a fumble during inside run drills.

Offensively, Collier thrived in red zone play, catching several passes, including one that went for a 15-yard touchdown while Highsmith connected with LaRon Byrd and Kendal Thompkins on big passing plays in 11-on-11 drills.

The heat index reached into the upper 90’s again, with a consistent wind that often gusted up to 20-25 miles per hour during the session.

The Hurricanes will hold their third two-a-day on Wednesday before taking a day off on Thursday.

Practice Highlights

· Colin McCarthy intercepted a tipped pass in 11-on-11 work and also recovered a fumble during running drills.

· A few other defensive highlights included a Micanor Regis fumble recovery and a Luther Robinson sack.

· Thearon Collier stood out among the wide receivers, picking up multiple catches – including a 15-yard touchdown – in red zone work.

· A.J. Highsmith connected with LaRon Byrd for a 40+ yard gain and Kendal Thompkins (20-25 yard gain) in 11-on-11 action.

· Damien Berry and Lee Chambers each picked up big runs late in the session.

· Mike James caught a touchdown pass from Taylor Cook in 11-on-11 red zone drills.

Post-practice notes

· Tuesday marked the team’s ninth day of camp and 11th practice session.

· The session lasted approximately two hours and 20 minutes. Temperatures remained in the mid-to-upper 80’s throughout.

· The ‘Canes will hold their third two-a-day of fall camp on Wednesday with early morning and late afternoon sessions.

· Running back Graig Cooper (lower leg) did not practice.

· The Hurricanes’ season-opener at Florida State on Mon. Sept 7 is 20 days away.

Miami will hold approximately 18 workouts prior to the first day of class on Aug 26. Eleven of those workouts have been completed.

SuperCooper

Losing Ojomo hurts.

Old Skool

It'll be interesting to see the reaction if and when the walk-on's name is revealed.

CaneSawMassacre

So Truth..... Where are you??

I guess my understanding of the event was a lot closer to the truth than previously thought...

CaneSawMassacre

Broken Jaw in two places...

Sure sounds like a sucker punch to me. I sure hope Shannon threw this kid off the team.

SunriseMike

That's big news 86, congrats. Keep up the good work! Love Canespace.

alf

ROLL CALL: Who is going to the Kick-off party tonight?

The Truth

I can't stop the machine. It is what it is.

You guys should go back to the old blog and read what Scott wrote at about 11:00 pm. That should give you some insight on how when things are left to die, positives outcomes are the result.

But once stuff becomes public...

Canesaw, I already told you, I'm not sayin anything. This stuff happens. All the time and before blobs and information crazy people like yourself, it all went unnoticed - as it should.

The inner working of a football program are not for public scrutny. The putter workings are, but the day to day operations involving players is none of our business. This isn't a soap opera.

The Truth

putter - sorry...outer

DATcane

Keep everything in-house and handle issues at the lowest level possible.....works for me!

The Truth

So if Ojomo got his jaw broken and he had surgery did he get it wired shut (do they still do that?) I think his buggest concern would be losing the weight because he would be on a liquid diet.
--------------------------------------------
i dunno if the OJOMO jaw-breaking is true, but Santana Moss broke his entire lower face incl. jaw during his final campaign at the U and was on a liquid diet for twelve weeks ... My friend was the maxillofacial resident on call when the 'accident' occured. The amazing thing is that NOT A SINGLE OPPOSING TEAM FOUND OUT ABOUT IT because this was before everything that happened io a players' life off the field was not leaked to the media AND the blogosphere was in its infancy. NOBODY EVER FOUND OUT that he played that whole year on a liquid diet and recovering from a rebuilt face, and unfortunately in this day in age people would immediately leak the story AND would be trying to further injure the face (be it Ojomo or Moss back in the day) by throwing potshots in the bottom of a pileup gamgtackle when there are always people taking cheap shots. I FIND IT FUNNY THAT TO THIS DAY very little reporting from the time can be found - not a police report, not a doctor who would go on record, he was never on the injury list despite the fact he was already slender and still lost 30 more pounds while drinking shakes thru straws BUT still had a season making him a first round pick ... The press never even got a legit answer as to why he was never made available until the last week of the season to the media after ballgames. DIFFERENT TINE, IN SOME WAY A BETTER TIME AND NOT JUST FOR THE HURRICANES, BUT FOR THE FACT THAT TOO MUCH INFO ABOUT EVERY PLAYER CAN GET INTO OPPONENTS' HANDS and thus is not usually a good thing.

...read this ^^^^^^^ then maybe we can keep THIS blog out of the way of TMZ...

We must protect this HOUSE!!!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

The Truth

BTW -86

Scotts a good guy...

CaneForce

I sure wish i could be the first person to post. I really want one of those canespace t shirts. Is there anyway i can just purchase one?

The Truth

And what makes it easier for someone like me (and J possibly) not to comment is knowing that the second I give the legion the good word, SOME of you copy and paste it straight to another blob.

Not cool.

Shannon is old school and keeps things in house. He isn't required to inform anyone of anything outside of the AD and the players parents.

That's it.

Move on. I'm sure some bozo will dig enough for the sake of recognition and the story will come out. But until then...a player is hurt. Won't be practicing and someone else will get a chance to play.

The Truth

Be good gents!!

If NOT then emasil me your mailing addy and size and U can buy one for $15 which includes shipping.

SebastianDaIbis

Looks like panic #1 and the 1st of the conspiracy "insider" information is wrong

Will those so called insiders comeback to retract their statements LOL

When I hand the cards out I tell them about the Duke tickets I won as well as the t-shirts you can get here...quality shirts at a low price

No other `Cane site i`ve been on before this ever offered anything like that

Old Skool

Won't be at the kick off party tonight. If I started driving now, I wouldn't arrive until 1:30 AM.

The Truth

I told you all Cooper just had a "tweak"

Aaaahhhhhh...and these are the days of our lives

LOL

86Cane

Sebastian...As far as I know, we give away MORE stuff than The Sun Sentinel, The Miami Herald, ITU, Canesport and CanesTime give out combined! In fact, I don't think any of them give out anything at all, do they?

DZ8

I just heard that Cooper has a tweak!!!!

Whats a TWEAK and is it contagious? Should we quarantine him??? Hope Shannon knows what he's doing.

Canefantasy

We will be fine on any of the positions we have depth. Bailey can move to end or Marcus Robinson is good. Running back we are fine too. Its positions like offensive line, qb, cornerback, tight end that we cant afford any injuries and we should worry about. Hopefully Ojomo can tough it out and play with a broken jaw.. ouch..haha doubtful

Canefantasy

DZ8 it seems that Cooper is the first to come down with this tweak and its more contagious then Swine flu and it could spread to every player on the team..

Canez1

I think I caught the tweak back in the day after a crazy weekend with a stripper.

What!!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

CaneSawMassacre

I completely understand what you are saying Truth . .

I wouldn't post anything on another blog.. Except canesport but they already had the info over there like 5 days ago.

But there was no way this information wasn't going to get out.. It just doesn't happen that way anymore. It is the society we live in, it doesn't make it right. I'm just saying, I respect the old school attitude....

and everything you bring to this blog.. I think I misinterpreted your comments when we first talked about the whole thing.

I get you crystal clear now.

moneycane

Canefantasy this isn't a shoot at you, some people say we're fine we can move Bailey to DE, and then they turn around and bash the coaches for making the move claiming that player so and so never found a home and the coaches waisted his potential.

canezilla

i'll be there along with the wife..trying to win some fsu tickets..people keep telling me that coop is out for 4 weeks damn rumors..

DZ8

Canez1 lol, so thats what the tweak is. I had it too, back in my college days.


Bailey will not move to DE. We are fine at DE. We would be better with Ojomo at 100% but if you had to pick a spot to lose a player at, DE would be at the top of the list.

86Cane

Zilla...cool, see U there.

Who else is going?

CaneSawMassacre

I unfortunately can not 86... I wish I could though.

Can't miss any work time this week.
