BREAKING NEWS FROM MANNY NAVARRO:

"I called one of my sources at the U just now. Barrow isn't going anywhere. He's been given his old job as linebackers coach back. He isn't unhappy. Barrow was moved to defensive assistant (line/secondary) coach to prepare him to become a defensive coordinator one day. He's been given linebackers coach back because the plan was for him to do that for just one year. As far as I know, his relationship with Randy and company is fine."

solarcane

yup

solarcane

thats good news about Barrow,
Maybe taking some of the work load off Lovett

Manny Navarro

What's up people? Just stopping by to say hello and let you know I'm getting ready to bounce on the Marlins beat. I'll be around for a few spring practices and the spring game, but very busy with baseball the next few months. Just the way the job is.

SOUP

Manny...I posted your Barrow comment and the link to your blog. What's up with MLB at UM?

Manny Navarro

I still expect Colin McCarthy to be the guy come the fall. I know what was reported by the Palm Beach Post, but the Canes always rotate their linebackers any way. The fact Colin hasn't taken any snaps there in a game, he has to take some this spring. I'm interested to see how Shayon Green looks. I'm told he's grown to about 6-3, 235-240 pounds and is "diesel."

86Cane

Marlins? Josh Johnson? New ball park? How do they compete in their division?

FREE TICKETS??? LOL

Daytoncane

Green is diesel huh? i miss the days of a big physical MLB.

my question is does he look good in terms of sideline to sideline quickness? Lord knows we don't need another Sharpton out there.

Sounds like me? NOT! LOL

What about DVD, Brandon Harris and McGee?

Forston and Ojomo are back. Do they make a dent? What happened to MRob? We NEED better D-Line play or we are dead on defense?.

Manny Navarro

A: We'll find out this spring. Green missed all of last year with a knee injury. But it is good he's back. He's a guy Wesley McGriff absolutely loves.

Manny Navarro

A: It's time for DVD to show us he can play that's for sure. McGee has to be in the mix at corner, especially in nickel and dime situations.

I bumped into Ojomo at the Champs Sports Bowl and I can tell you the man is hungry. He's gained back most of his weight and is just dying to get on the field and deliver. I haven't seen Forston since he was bragging about the big screen TV he bought before the bowl game. But he wasn't as pudgy as he was last year. You are right 86. The d-line has to improve. But I believe they will. Too much quality talent not to be good. Rick Petri will make those guys better.

solarcane

Hey there Juan, glad to see you around.

How does Jacory look last time you saw him , is he getting any thicker?

86Cane

Mike James, Lamar Miller or Damien Berry?

Tough Question???

86Cane

Manny...Jason Fox? Did U see our recent interview with him? Does he get drafted in the first 3 rounds?

Manny Navarro

A: He hasn't been lifting because he's had the cast on. But he probably hasn't lost much weight. I'm sure he's still doing what he has to do to be ready. His dad is on his butt.

Manny Navarro

Mike James, Lamar Miller or Damien Berry? Tough Question??? Posted by: 86Cane | February 12, 2010 at 12:07 AM

A: Mike James and Damien Berry followed by Miller. I think you'll see all three share the load. But I expect James and Berry to see most of the snaps. Miller is electric.

86Cane

Mandingo...check out this recent article by Canespace blogger MiamiMike01. ;-)

Manny Navarro

Manny...Jason Fox? Did U see our recent interview with him? Does he get drafted in the first 3 rounds? Posted by: 86Cane | February 12, 2010 at 12:07 AM

A: I did. Good job. It's funny, I ran into Jason and Javarris James at Drew Rosenhaus' Super Bowl party. Both gave me big hugs. I think Fox has a chance to sneak into the third round with a really good combine. Otherwise, he's a fourth through seventh guy depending on team needs.

Daytoncane

Manny i did a piece on some statistical facts the Canes must improve on called Let Me Upgrade You (the last blog). in your opinion what is the most important thing the team must improve on next year to become a title contender?

86Cane

Manny...Check out this theory:

If Berry busts them in the chops and wears them down.

If Mike James gains yards and catches passes out of the backfield.

And then Miami Killian Cougar Lamar Miller runs right PAST them.

Who can stop us???

solarcane


Manny,
who is going to be That Guy that takes charge of the Defense.
Is Brandon Harris the true leader or will CMac be the guy that challenges them when the shyt hits the fan?

86Cane

Manny...this is the article with stats that Dayton mentioned. Good Stuff:

A: Offensive line. if Jacory doesn't have to run for his life as often as he did last year and take as many hits as he did last year, this offense becomes unstoppable. There are just too many weapons for this offense not to be generating more points. UM's offensive weapons should be separating them from everyone in the ACC. They are stacked at RB and WR. Yet, they finish fifth in the ACC in scoring? Just doesn't make sense. This is a team that should be scoring 40 points a game easy.

Manny Navarro

A: Nobody.

Manny Navarro

Manny, Who is going to be That Guy that takes charge of the Defense? Is Brandon Harris the true leader or will CMac be the guy that challenges them when the shyt hits the fan? Posted by: solarcane | February 12, 2010 at 12:18 AM

A: Brandon Harris has always been a vocal leader. I haven't seen a lot of that from Colin McCarthy. He kind of leads by example. But I think the fact #1 will be a junior this year, coming off an All-ACC First Team season, he won't be as shy as he was as a sophomore. He's going to be loud and proud.

86Cane

Manny...U are the best in the business!

Thanks for your time here on The Space.

Have a great night and take care.

Manny Navarro

Good job by the way on Upgrade blog. All four of those areas are huge for UM.

Manny Navarro

Peace out 86.

Daytoncane

And then Miami Killian Cougar Lamar Miller runs right PAST them.

Who can stop us???

Posted by: 86Cane | February 12, 2010 at 12:15 AM

only you can stop us.

by being so proud of Lamar for his efforts you'll kidnap and put him in your basement as a trophy. then we'll have no explosive plays as a result.

it will be ALL YOUR FAULT!!!!!

moneycane

Q: Manny have you been hearing, seeing anything about Lyron Bryd. It seems like he was rather quiet last season? Also if we could only take 5 WR who would your five be?

moneycane

FWIW my 5 would be Hankerson,Benjamin,Bryd,Collier,AJ

86Cane

Midnight Madness on Canespace with Manny Navarro is brought to U by the Miami Herald. Pay your respects by visiting Manny on his blog at:

DO IT NOW!

moneycane

86 solar just wrote a piece about living in the past. I think you should adhere to those words and change your avitar. I see your off the AJ bandwagon and on the Lamar Miller bandwagon. Who you got for your LOF on offense?

86Cane

Money...for 2010 I have:

Mike James and Lamar Miller on Offense.

DVD and RayRay on D.

Posted by: 86Cane | February 12, 2010 at 12:44 AM

So we get to pick two players for each side of the ball now?

On O I got Lyron Bryd and (insert starting TE)

On D I got DVD and Allen Bailey

j.w.

So I go away for two days of skiing and intentionally leave the computer behind, and I come back to a Canes B ball win that I honestly never saw coming, news of Barrow leaving, then staying, a baseball player leaving, and what else? Never a dull moment around here. :)

A letter to Bennie Blades
------------------------------
Bennie Blades, I never knew you. But I didn't have to, to love you because you are a cane. Yes! That's how strong the cane bond is. Just like the mob, "this thing of ours!" your recent comments about boss Shanon threatens that bond, with some of us at least.
It's one thing for Corey Lemonier to not consider us because of  beef with Brandon Harris & Kendal thompkins. They are kids and they will be stupid sometime. And for Florida kids, they are often aggressively stupid, not just plain stupid. But for an alumini to display the same adolescent stupidity is tough to forgive. Because you harbor some jealousy towards Shanon for being the man, out of all you ex players, you slander him without much thought. Some claim your reasoning is because of the lack of understanding that old canes have about the nature of college football today. But I say it is simple unadoltrated maliciousness, with a touch of classlessness and a hint of backwardness. I mean, when do we become men and leave the stupidity of youth behind. Sir, if you feel under achieved, then go into coaching yourself; pop warner, highschool, take your pick.
It's even worse if you consider that the guy you offend is a black man like yourself. While pursuing his passion, he's simultaneously holding the mantle for black coaches. He's the highest placed black coach in college football right now. He leads one of the top college programs in the nation. He means so much not only in Florida but he's a beacon of hope to all aspiring black coaches nationwide. I dare not suggest that he's above criticism. But what you utter is not that, it's just cheap slander... 
My respect for you is in the past until you offer the boss a public apology.

Posted this last week. Anyone who thinks this offense, loaded with stud upperclassmen won't be dominant is insane.

 DATcane

If our oline can give time...we can score 40 a game.
