Hurricane's Steven Wesley fails to make the grade

MIAMI HERALD STAFF

The University of Miami dismissed defensive end Steven Wesley for academic reasons, sources told the Miami Herald

Wesley, a 6-2, 250-pound senior from Bartow, Fla., has made 17 starts the last two seasons and has 44 career tackles, 10 for loss. He had three sacks last season.

Coaches may also dismiss receiver Thearon Collier.

Collier, a junior from Miami Booker T. Washington High, is expected to meet with the coaching staff on Monday, sources said.

USC, Kiffin in the news again:

Kiffin left the University of Tennessee in January after just 14 months running the program to take his self-described dream job at USC. He left behind a mattress-burning mob in Knoxville and an entire state full of furious fans who have vilified Kiffin online and in various media outlets for several months.

"I don't think the lawsuit has anything to do with the time frame, when Jeff Fisher got my message," Kiffin said.

The lawsuit claims Kiffin violated Pola's contract by making contact without permission, and Fisher admittedly was angry when Kiffin apparently contacted Pola without the customary courtesy call to Fisher. Kiffin claims he left a message for Fisher within the usual time frame of such a request, and says he smoothed over the dispute with the USC alumnus in recent days.

The lawsuit wasn't exactly the best way to get off to a good start with Pat Haden, the Trojans' new athletic director. But Kiffin said Haden was "well aware of every step" the Trojans took in rehiring Pola, who coached alongside Kiffin on Pete Carroll's staff at USC several years ago.

"He wasn't pleased, nor was I," Kiffin said of Haden's reaction to the suit.

Kiffin claimed he was forced to wait to hire a running backs coach and offensive coordinator until a few days before most football teams report to camp because the Trojans hadn't resolved the fate of running backs coach Todd McNair, whose contract wasn't renewed when it expired July 1. McNair was a key figure in the NCAA's investigation of illegal benefits for Heisman Trophy-winning tailback Reggie Bush, leading to heavy sanctions against USC last month.

Kiffin first tried to hire Vikings running backs coach Eric Bieniemy, who nearly accepted before Minnesota gave him a pay raise and a promotion to assistant head coach.

"We were very far down the road with Eric Bieniemy, thought it was done," Kiffin said.

Kiffin then turned to Pola, who teamed up with Ed Orgeron to recruit the cream of California's high-school stars during Carroll's tenure. Orgeron also returned to USC with Kiffin in January.

YUP, but our depth takes a hit.

Let's hope we stay healthy and avoid any serious injuries during practice.

We need depth to make it through the season.

Im not going to say this sucks

The `Canes will be more then fine. THIS DOES NOT HURT THE U IN 2010

IF it's trUe T.C. is going through heartache with the lost of a child and his mother's untimely stroke, then he gets a free pass from moi.

And Shannon knows best, so he just may give T.C some type of games suspension.

Speaking of Coach Shannon, thanks to a provided link by a fellow Cane aficianando of Michael's interview with Coach, I'm thinking your Miami Hurricanes will finish the regular season with an oUtstanding 11-1 regular season.

Randy is the type of personality that likes to keep his Green n' Orange cards close to his chest, and his interview is showing a bery, bery, bery promising season in 2010. B.C.S. bowl game anyone!

^^^This. So much for having a decent D-Line if there are injuries - LB's are a weakspot it seems

Excerpt from Irvin interview with Coach


I think they've done a great job in the film room on this season. LaRon Byrd has a key, that he came and got from me, and the guys come up here on Saturday mornings, 7 o clock, watch films for about 35, 40 minutes, then they go out on the field and do their 7-on-7 and individual drills. That's how you know you got a team that wants to get it done, and that's the things that have changed over the process... but we have guys that are football guys now. Junkies. Football junkies, as you call 'em. Gym rats. And those guys are gonna take us to where we need to be at.

As CGNC mentioned, LB is Miami's Achilles Heel this season. So IF Futch were to miss the entire season, the youngin's will have to accelerate the learning process at LB. No if's and's or maybe's.

U dig! No, well I didn't think so. LOL

UM dismissed senior defensive end Steven Wesley

BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
sdegnan@MiamiHerald.com

University of Miami senior defensive end Steven Wesley has been dismissed from the Hurricanes football team, a source close to the situation said Saturday.

The source would neither confirm nor deny whether Wesley's dismissal was related to academics. Another source said Wesley was not as well conditioned physically as expected by the program, but did not cite that as the reason for his dismissal.

Excerpt from interview regarding depth

You know, taking it one step, one play at a time, and go through the process. Cuz you know what, a lot of people doubted us last year when we had those first four games, and we went 3-1. But we have to improve on those first four games, and try and get better in this upcoming season, which I know these guys will, because they've been through the ringer now, and they understand that complacency or somebody patting you on the back can make you a little lazy. And with the way this team is now, with the competition that we have now, with the depth, which I think is unbelievable now on this football team, it's really, really gonna surprise a lot of people.

http://hurricanesports.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mifl-m-footbl-body.html

Pimp's pic is on the front page .. not good planning on the intern or whoever puts things on the website

I can't say that I understand what Pimp is going through, I can't imagine losing a child like he did. I have a friend who lost a child 5 hours after it was born - he still chokes up anytime he thinks about it .... and this guy is a 6'4 250 lb beast of a man

To say that it had a trickle down effect on him is probably being too obvious


As for Futch and Wesley - the hell is their excuse? What else do you need? You have a full ride to the University of Miami. You're getting your school paid for, room and board I assume, which also includes not having to pay a water bill, electricity bill either ... and all you have to do is take care of business in class and also at your job - which is on the field

It's always amazing to me how laziness can creep into the world of an athlete when it comes to other things - such as school

Hey, here's something to think about playas - you don't take care of business in the classroom, you're not going to see the field ... ever think about that? That goes along with people who cry & bitch & moan about the Canes not getting so-and-so player from Dade/Broward/etc. and not thinking about how possibly a certain kid might have grade issues and even if he did come to The "U", he wouldn't be able to get the grades to see the field .. so he eats up a scholly for another possible player


Ya ya, I know some people are going to give me sh*t about how these football players get up at 4 am to go workout .. go to film study for so many hours .. go lift for so many hours .. go practice for so many hours .. then have to do school work on top of that

Hey, you know what? I don't see Brandon Harris having a problem. I don't see Laron Byrd having a problem. I don't see Spence, Bailey, C-Mac, DVD, VTelemaque, Ray Ray, etc. having a problem

It's called taking care of business

Also, these kids chose their "profession" to play football, so they knew what came with it. The hours of practicing, film study, lifting and school

I was a student athlete as well - and no, those words were not an oxymoron

No one is asking these kids to be on the damn Dean's List every single year - they're just asking them something pretty easy to do and that's at least make the minimum .. THE MINIMUM .. required of them in the classroom in order to stay on the field


With Wesley gone - that just opens the doors for others to get more reps and playing time, like Dyron Dye

With Futch - hopefully the kid gets it, hopefully someone like Vilma talks with him & he gets his sh*t straight

From SS:

As for rumors, here’s the latest on wide receiver Thearon Collier and defensive end Steven Wesley. Collier has not been suspended from the team and will play this season. According to a source, he is dealing with some non-football related issues. Collier’s mom, Tranise Harris, recently had a stroke and he’s also coping with his girlfriend having a miscarriage earlier this year.

On top of that, he suffered a wrist injury during the summer. But No. 28 is expected in uniform when camp opens Thursday.

The same can’t be said for Wesley. A source said he’s expected to be ruled academically-ineligible. He will likely pursue a transfer.

Well, at least the ' disheartening ' news regarding T.C. has legs to stand on.

Life on the ' third rock from the sun' isn't always sunny. However, absolutely nobody as young as Coller should have to experience what he's experienced lately!

Six- Just a brief Rays comment

What the heck was the Qualls deal about???

I know Balfour is out 4-6 weeks but come on, a guy dealing with his own injury and a 8.29 ERA and an opponents avg. of .363

Rays only gave up the usual PTBNL but I still dont understand what the bullpen gained by this with Hellickson on his way

Six

Sebastian - with this guy, you have to see him in a different uni with a different team I believe

I've got no idea what they saw, then again, I remember Brewers fans wanting to get rid of Balfour as soon as possible as well

I also have complete faith in the Rays front office - they're doing pretty well in trades, with more hits than misses

Even though Delmon Young is finally coming into his own this year and I didn't like the trade at the time it happened b/c I saw enormous potential from DY .... the Rays got Garza and Bartlett back

The Rays brought in Zobrist and Wheeler (who I still am not sold on) from the Astros

They brought in a diehard Cane fan, Sean Rodriguez, along with a hard throwing lefty and a utility player for Kaz

The Shoppach deal hasn't really panned out exactly that greatly ... but it's not that bad either

They brought in Soriano

Ya, they did bring in Burrell - but hey, if that's one of their only misses, that's fine, b/c they still have the 2nd best record in baseball


So, I dunno about Qualls. But, I'm willing to give the Rays office a chance with him


Also, I know that the Rays are in serious talks to get Manny Ramirez here .... I'm not a huge fan of him, yes he can absolutely mash, but imagine him as the DH in the Rays lineup? He also really wants nothing to do with playing the outfield

I coulda told U that! Canez1 lives in a different universe from the rest of us.

Plus, he REALLY likes Mariah Carey.

Six

How about the Yankees as well, just missing out on Cliff Lee .... so they go get Kearns and Berkman instead to hit in their Little League sized ballpark

I was telling a couple of my boys up at work, die hard Rays fans, that just wait - the Yankees will bring in a couple of guys like they always do at the trade deadline

When you have pockets that deep & an office that is willing to spend & do whatever it takes to win, it always happens

That's why it's still good & bad about teams like the Rays who have a $70 Million payroll, but yet compete with the $200+ Million payroll of the Yankees and the $180+ Million payroll of the Red Sox

It's bad in the sense that it shows a small payroll team can still ball out, so that doesn't help in any kind of argument for having a salary cap - which is basically a complete pipe dream

It's good in the sense that you see a team like the Yankees or Red Sox, who spend all that money - but yet still go get even more players and spend even more money, b/c they feel threatened by a team like the Rays

F.U. Yankees and Red Sox

Per 321's post. Solid stuff. There's more Canes info in your one post than I've read anywhere else in the last month. Thanks

Sebastian

The few Rays people I know, which arent as high up as the ones you know

They dont know if the Rays will pull the trigger now for ManRam or wait until he passes thru waivers and hope he doesnt have a claim put on him. Those guys told me that the White Sox might be a team that would put a claim on him blocking ManRom from coming here

I say if they really want to do it then do it now

Just dont give up the future to do it

I also dont see B.J. going anywhere. I might be the only one in the 813/727 that is happy to see that for the rest of the season

From Manny's Fish blog:

Went to Marlins VIP Party, the Stadium is going to be beautiful and some of the ticket options are great. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Only problem if your not Season Ticket Holder parking will be tough. 4800 slots in garages and 1000 in outside lots.

Posted by: bobbyd12 | July 30, 2010 at 10:25 AM

I am gonna say it right now:

The new Marlins stadium at the old Orange Bowl site is going to be the BIGGEST waste of taxpayers money in the history of the State of Florida.

Unless they build that high speed train to nowhere. Then that would probably be it.

ZarOkoN

so did Miami just lose two recruit to Notre Dame again? Aaron Lynch and Anthony Rabasa?

Sucks for these guys. With the DE out lets see how good our depth is now..

Hopefully Theron and Jordan are not kicked out the team. They both are solid players..but we all know at Miami..one player goes down another steps up..

Sebastian

Sorry Soup I meant to hit you with an email and got caught up in all this Rays trade stuff

Ocala and his wife should go and see that game behind homeplate

I will make sure to attend the game with the season ticket deal I have with a group of work people. No need for me and my wife to waste one of your valuable tickets.

This way 2 more `Spacers can enjoy the game as well

Sebastian

It looks like the Yanks will be getting Kerry Woods

Whew....That just helped the Rays chances of winning the division right there, he would be better off throwing the ball left handed against the Rays

Come on Yanks, you can reach that $500,000,000 payroll

Zakkee

This does ultimately suck. Not as an excuse for the kids involved, but its just unfortunate no matter if a kid chose to be lazy or there are outside situations involved or whatever else. Its just not good news, so it does suck.

We really need Futch, especially in Columbus.

If its true that Wesley was academically and physically out of shape, then that says that he's mentally out of shape and isn't ready to contribute to this team concept. He's let them down, especially as a fifth year senior. This does effect the team.

Wesley DOES NOT affect the team, imo.

He was a JAG (JUST ANOTHER GUY).
They moved him to TE two springs ago so they could have a body running routes.
He was good adainst the run and got some (3) sacks last year for the first time.

He wore the orange and green so I root for the guy and wish it would've worked out but he is the least of our concerns. IMO it's actually a blessing as we can see more of the new young talent.

Sebastian

Marlins pickup LHP Will Ohman from the Orioles for RHP Rick Vander Hurk

It doesnt look like a spectacular deal but anytime you can get a quality lefty in the pen its always a good move

DZ8

I hope Collier is just going to get a redshirt so once again, we can see what the other talented receivers got. I beleive they (KT&DJ) have more upside than Pimp.

I hope Futch gets his wake up call and just misses a game.
