Really good stuff here Caned, even if McKenzie was a quitter who can't drive for jack and forced the Turf Face and Jitter's show down our throats in 2007. Wonder if he ever tried to actually go talk to Shannon to find out what he was expecting him to do to earn more playing time before punking off to Tennessee or did he just waive the white flag preemptively?

canechic, I can just see the writing meetings with the hacks responsible for adapting a boardgame to the big screen, "We're sunk already and you didn't even try F5." Should be fascinating cinema, if you've have your eyes gored out by wild bulls in Spain.

Caned, that was awesome!

And unlike a newspaper article, it wasn't cleaned up to spare the truth from others.

One question I would have asked, since he has seen both QBs in person:

"What can you tell us about Ryan Williams?"

But that can be a followup article, right?

BTW, Ryan Williams is #18, so that worked out great for me.

canechic

When I read this article the only thing that comes to mind is....these kids want too much too fast!!! And the grass is NOT always greener on the other side!!!

Ok so if he was so good....why did he not shine in Memphis and become a great receiver?

These kids have lost the concept of sit it out learn become better and you will be a great player. Because being a great wide receiver is much more than just catching a ball and doing good in practice!!!!

I hear this from all these players who left and not one of them is a star anywhere???

Behind the Facemask: Keion Payne

"Keion Payne | Defensive Back | Redshirt Freshman | Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

My favorite thing about being part of the U Family is that it really is a brotherhood. I've never been part of an organization where prior members come back and show so much love. Just being around them, it's fascinating in itself.

I'm afraid of dogs. I'm terrified of dogs. Anyone who knows me back home knows that. It could be a little dog, it doesn't matter, I still need it caged if I'm around.

When I played football as a kid, I pretended to be Deion Sanders. I always wanted to be one of the fastest kids. When I was real young I played quarterback, so I guess back then I wanted to be Michael Vick too.

Coach Williams is a smart coach. He puts you in the best position to make plays. I feel like he's the real good defensive backs coach that I've never had. Coming from Dillard High School, we didn't really have a defensive backs coach. I see a lot of good things that Coach Williams is doing.

I never thought I would be playing for the University of Miami. I really thought I would be playing somewhere else. I never knew that Miami would offer me, it's really a dream come true for me to be here, so I'm thankful for that.

My favorite midnight snack, ever since I was younger, is Tom's Salt and Vinegar chips, a watermelon Arizona Iced Tea and a Honeybun.

When I was offered a scholarship, I wasn't really stuck on the idea of being a Miami defensive back. I always thought I was too small to play or wasn't physical enough. As the recruiting process went along, I knew that this was the place for me. I got better along the way, and I felt that I could make my mark here as a player.

I'm a Hurricane because of the love that I've gotten in the past year. When I was being recruited, I went to look at a lot of schools, like Florida, Ohio State, Florida State and Georgia. I didn't feel the love there like I did down here, there's so much that keeps you going.

You have to transition quickly in college. It requires you to grow up fast. I played against Travis Benjamin in high school, and I saw how good he was. I can't lie, the first few practices I was kind of nervous. Once I got that out of the way though I was ready to go.

One player that I model myself after is Eric Berry. He's been my favorite player ever since I was in high school watching him at Tennessee. I really look up to him as a player. His game speaks for itself. I watch him on YouTube a lot.

One song that no one would believe I have on my iPod is "Take Me Away" by Keyshia Cole.

Becoming a man is a process, and I feel like coming to college is a stepping ground for that. My mom has really been pushing me to become a man. Since I've been a kid, she's hassled me about the things you need to do to become successful, to become a man, and to grow up.

I was raised in the city of Fort Lauderdale. I have two sisters, one older and one younger and I have a younger brother, and then there's my mom. Those people in my life are who I'm trying to get there for. They're constantly keeping me going. I love the fact that I have a family as my backbone.

The best advice I was given was from my defensive backs coach in high school, Otis Mounds, who now coaches at Texas Tech. He told me I could always be who I wanted to be. My confidence wasn't really up when I transferred from Dillard to Saint Thomas, and I was worried that I might not be able to make it coming from a public school. He told me I could be who I wanted to be, I just had to put my mind to it and everything would work out.

It's shocking to see the NFL players from the U walking past you at first. I look up to Antrel Rolle as a cornerback because of the things he's done. When I saw him for the first time, I wanted to see how he worked out and to see his work ethic so I could do it myself. There's no place like this.

South Florida has the best football in America. That's my opinion. The three counties, Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade have the best football in the nation.

We are all constantly striving to be the best person we can be.

One player on the team I'm close with is Ray-Ray Armstrong. I look up to him as well, because of the things he's done and the person who he is. I talk to him all the time, so he keeps me humble and keeps me going hard all the time.

I admire my mom and my friends. I say those people because of how they keep pushing me. They keep me on a straight path. I love my mom so much, because she's one of the people that's always been there. I can honestly say I have spoken with her every single day of my life.

Legacy is something I want to leave here at the U. In high school, I feel like I left my legacy at Saint Thomas and Dillard, but I want to leave one at the U. Each and every day I go out there and I try to be the best that I can be, so one day I can leave my legacy.

My superstition is that I have to have a towel dangling from the side of my pants every game. It's been that way since high school. Even at practice, I feel like I can't go out there without my towel. You can say it's to look pretty or have some swag, but I don't go out there without my towel.

My favorite song right now is "Sure Thing" by Lil Wayne.

When I was younger, I was a swimmer. I was real good. I was a real competitor at the AAU level. I started swimming when I was two years old. Most people don't know that, they would probably laugh at me.

My mom and my aunt didn't really want me to play football because I'm allergic to grass. It's crazy. You might see me around here sniffling and sneezing. Right after I'm done with practice is when I can usually feel the allergies, but I don't think about it while I'm out there. When I was younger, I used to come home and wheeze. I used to have to use a machine when I was younger for it. My mom just wanted me to stay with swimming. I remember once I skipped swim practice and went to football practice and she found out. She came and pulled me off the field and took me to swim practice (laughs).

When I was six years old, me and one of my friends would go outside and run around the block a few times every night. My mom probably doesn't know that, but we were out there every night (laughs).

I never knew how good I had it until I came here to the University of Miami. I'm very thankful for being here, I can't say that enough.

Competition is something I love. I thrive off competition. It's a big thing for me. I feel like competing with somebody in front of you is the biggest thrill to have on the football field. Just knowing that if you make a play, you have a chance to dance. All I want is to make a play and get the crowd hyped. Competition is a big thing."

If McKenzie had been that good, I can't believe Shannon would of kept him on the pine. Like someone mentioned above these kids want to much to soon. Half of them are not ready physically or mentally to handle the grind of college football. Some of them were beast in a weak conference, where talent wasn't at a premium. Some were thrown to the dogs much to early. Marve missed his freshman year due to injury and Harris would of been better suited to red-shirt but because we were so QB poor because of slack recruitng, they had to play, although neither one is or was suited to play in a pro-style offense.
The biggest problem with the "U" in the previous 6 years has been recruitng and poor coaching. Our recruitng has been head scratching, when were LB poor we recruited 5 or 6 lb's in 08 but only Spence & Buchanan have played, Marti got kicked off, Zack Kane never stepped foot on campus and Marcus Robinson was moved to D-End, which he has been servicable at best but to his credit he took one for the team. The consistance in recruitng has not been there. Getting a good QB or developing one has been a big problem. With 25 Ships to offer we should never be caught with not bringing in a QB. In the last 8 years we have had years where we didn't get a Qb or we got only one WR and our numbers were deficient. The same can be said on Defense where the linebacking position has been neglected and now it's the DTackle & CB positions. In the 2012 class Golden is addressing the CB's & QB's & LB postions but has yet to get a DT & we don't need just one at that position we need at least three, not just bodies but guys that are playmakers. It's still early and I guess he's going to bring in thirty or so kids, so we have about 10 schollies left. To me he's had some reaches, that he could of gotten later but getting caught in the situation that Shannon left him last year, I think got him a little antsy. I'm glad he's put the breaks on but it would be nice to finish up with: Bush, Thompson, Howard, Little, 2 more O-lineman, 2 more WR's and 2 more DT's and then we would be set.

Orlando Franklin Signs Contract, Details Revealed
Jul/29/11 07:52 AM Filed in: Orlando Franklin

The Broncos drafted Orlando Franklin in the second round 46th overall, out of Miami. Franklin adds some depth to the Broncos O-line and has a chance to start at right tackle depending on what happens with Ryan Harris.

Franklin had his deal finalized 40 minutes before the morning practice.

In the meantime, he was waiting in his hotel room, going over the playbook and bugging his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.

"He kept telling me to stop calling him," Franklin said.

Once he hit the field, Franklin quickly showed the form that made him a second-round pick. Stepping in as a starter at right tackle, he held his own.

"I learned a lot today; messed up a lot also," Franklin said. "But that comes with the territory."

The University of Miami product was given some plays to study during the lockout and quickly absorbed them, not wanting to let down his fellow linemen.

"It kind of stresses that you have to get it down as quick as possibly," the 6-foot-7, 312-pound Franklin said. "You're rolling with four other guys that pretty much know what they're doing.

"But I was pretty much in the same situation in college. Day one of (that) camp I started also. It puts a lot of pressure on you, but with time I think I'll be all right."

Defensive end Elvis Dumervil helped Franklin out, putting him through the paces when the two were in Florida.

"He told me if I'm able to work out down there in Miami and do the stuff that he was doing that I would be all right coming up here," Franklin said. "But I definitely felt like I was real tired out there."

Franklin was called "one of the most physical, nasty linemen in this year's draft" from NFL Networks Mike Mayock. He is perfect for the system that John Fox runs. He measures in at 6-4, 325 pounds, Franklin is a mauler who plays with a nasty streak. With a 36" reach, Franklin has excellent arms to play either inside or outside for the Broncos.

Franklin started 51 games while at the University of Miami where he played left guard and left tackle. While Franklin does have NFL intangibles, he will have to work on his footwork and technique. Those things can be coached. The Broncos over the past few years have been going to a heaver offensive line transitioning from the Shanahan line.

Felipe

3* CB Wayne Morgan offered by Miami. 5'11 175.

As an aside, I really feel like Al Golden's taking a collegiate Ron Wolf approach to recruiting a secondary: get a plethora of guys with potential *develop* it. Worked for the Packers big time. Had several pro bowler 3rd, 4th, 5th round picks in late 90s.

Not that he isn't going after bigger names. He's going hard for Tee Shepard, 4* (ESPN) or 5* CB committed to ND. With Tracy Howard slightly favoring Miami, and Shepard a possibility along with more under the radar guys, could be like 2002 all over again in that secondary.

WURD ON DA SKREET IS...

Seems like there is a little concern around here about the lack of DTs coming to Miami?

1. Golden doesnt recruit guys that can do just one thing. How soon some fans seem to forget about Pierre and Grimble in this class. They can play DT or DE.

2. Jelani and Trent are both in for next year and have frames to put on a lot of lbs. Of course you will have those that say they arent big enough. Well I guess they didn't see how big Pierre became already? Jelani is bigger then the 245 he's listed at, he'll play more like 260 this season.

3. Grimble is no light weight either. We are talking freshmen and high school seniors that weight 250-260. Plenty of time and room to grow on his frame.

4. Lastly you can remind them that Wilkerson came to Temple at around 255-260 DE and look at the bruh now. And all under who? That's right Al Golden.

5. I'm not comparing skill levels or anything cuz I'm never going to do that bruh. It's just an weight thing. Some of these fans here drive me insane LOL but I love 'em all the same.

I saw Ryan Williams play several times in high school and I was shocked the Canes were not knocking on his door. The kid bust be 6'5 with a very good arm. He was mobile in the pocket and very poised. He has a strong arm but he also had touch on his throws. My limited viewing of him, I thought he was very athletic, not a stiff.

In other news, FU rated one of the “10 douchiest colleges in America.

Douchy colleges are places where fashions are frumpy and behaviors are boorish, according to the authors of the new book, “The Rogers & Littleton Guide to America’s Douchiest Colleges."

At UF many students make questionable fashion choices such as “cutoff camo shorts; pristine all-white Nike Air Force 1's with ankle socks poking out just so; [and a] Tim Tebow jersey only partly concealing the rip tattoo for your homey on the upper biceps,” according to an article in GQ magazine.

Apple Now Has More Cash Than The U.S. Government


Matt Rosoff | Jul. 28, 2011, 8:14 PM | 214,603 | 223

Here's something to keep in mind as you follow this evening's congressional debate over the debt ceiling.

According to the latest daily statement from the U.S. Treasury, the government had an operating cash balance of $73.8 billion at the end of the day yesterday.

Apple's last earnings report (PDF here) showed that the company had $76.2 billion in cash and marketable securities at the end of June.

In other words, the world's largest tech company has more cash than the world's largest sovereign government.

That's because Apple collects more money than it spends, while the U.S. government does not.

(The Atlantic and CNBC both pointed this out earlier.)

4-Real, name me one great interior semen-hole lineman that jumped in from day one and made a difference at every level of football? I'll wait . . .

There's only a few Vince Wilfork's out there and last I checked, Fortson's closer to being the next guy like that than any indian impersonator in Tallahicksville.

4-Real

I find that hard to believe

4Real...I talked to Golden. He read your comments here on Canespace and said you were right. He is strongly considering red-shirting the whole team and calling off the season.

He wants to know if you approve before he talks to the team. Please reply ASAP!

When the NCAA makes you payback $ 2.66 you get the feeling they are taking their job for real, or else they are on a witch hunt.

Clemson details 12 NCAA secondary violations


July 29, 2011, 8:15 p.m. EDT
Associated Press


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Clemson's athletic department reported 12 NCAA secondary violations, including two athletes repaying their portion of a hotel room paid for by a former teammate's agent.

In addition, an interal audit found that athletes living off campus received about $1 more than they should have in their housing allowance.

The violations were reported Friday, and occurred between February and July 15. Clemson's athletic department releases NCAA violations twice a year through open records requests from The Associated Press and other media outlets.

The reports did not include the names of the athletes or the sports involved. The infractions are all considered secondary, the least serious NCAA classification.

Among the violations was one that occurred in March when a Clemson coach overheard players discussing their spring break trip to Miami and visiting former teammates training there. The athletic department's compliance department later found out that two athletes stayed in a hotel room paid for by the former teammate's agent at a cost of $379 plus tax per night.

The two were made to pay back their share of the bill, donating $76 each to charity.

The audit found out that Clemson athletes living away from campus received $1 to $2 more than they should have. All were declared ineligible but will have their status restored when they pay back the nominal fee.

Other infractions included a coach allowing a prospective student athlete to shadow him for a day in February. The violation was discovered when the coach took the young person to show him the compliance office. The coach was given a refresher on NCAA rules.

The NCAA found a Clemson prospect participated in organized competition past the one-year grace period given after high school graduation. The athlete was declared ineligible and was reinstated by the NCAA.

Also, the NCAA discovered a Clemson prospect was paid for playing in organized competition. He had his eligibility reinstated on the conditions that he would be charged a season of competition and repay the cost of the impermissible benefit, $333, to a local charity.

Another prospect recruited by Clemson was found by the NCAA to have played five games as a professional. The prospect's eligibility will be restored if the recruit sits out next season.

In another instance, a prospect heading for an official visit to Clemson had their car break down and called a coach for help because there was a toddler in the vehicle. Clemson's compliance office called the Atlantic Coast Conference office and, after consulting with the NCAA enforcement staff, was allowed to let a non-coaching staff employee pick the family about 5 miles away in Pendleton. The prospect was asked to pay back $2.66 in mileage costs.

Check 4 urself TLUV. While u @ it, check out the roster & count how many players we looze after this season, barring injury/redshirt. Dont 4get 2 count da draft eligible underclassmen like Lamar Miller, Ray Ray & Forston also. After u get ur total u will clearly understand why u need 2 bring in kids that can contribute immediately as oppose to takin on 4 yr projects. Feel free 2 post the total & name of the players we looze or may looze.

DrewZ2

4-Real...look and see who we lose after this year???? don't care about this year or something?

Anyways, who said Ray Ray, Lamar, and Forston all are going pro? I only think that Ray ray will IMO...Lamar will be splitting carries with James and Forston hasn't done anything significant since being here so I think he would boost his draft status by staying for his senior year....

And then we have all these freshman we just took in....who knows how good they are....I think that next year we will be extremely young...but then again when we had all those fresh/soph didn't we go like 9-4?

4-Real

U missing the point Drew.They will do fine this season due 2 the likes of Spence, Ojomo, Benjamin, u know...SHANNON'S FN PLAYERS!! By the way, Forston & Ray Ray are both projected 1st rounders.

86Cane

4Real...How can U consistently call the glass half empty when you can't even see the friggin glass!

U are the most negative, pessimistic person I have ever blogged with.

Whatever U do, don't look up now, the sky is fal.....

solar, Shiver played a total of four NFL seasons and was an OL guy. I was expecting too much when I put 4-Real on point about just who are these mysterious semen-hole DT's he thinks are so great that have kicked so much butt at all three levels of football since he didn't answer the question and just threw the beyond weak, not to mention untrue, watch last year's game query in reply. Besides no tackling Sanders and Brooks who are in the legit discussion for best at their respective positions ever, but not linemen, I can't think of a single indian who actually played well on the defensive line in the NFL, all their high picks are busts, but 4-Real is envious of their recruiting there? Makes no sense at all, much like his post spelling is rapidly deteriorating into as well. You can throw Samari Rolle in there also, not an all time great but a long time good player in the NFL, again though, DB.

OhioCane

Question for Canespacers. A former Cane holds the NCAA record for most TD's in a career with 74. Who is it?

PS - LM6 just broke it 3 games into his senior season on my NCAA 12! Lol

4-Real

Just being realistic 86. Just check the roster.

4-Real

Keep living in the past OGV. That's the problem. All u guys do on a daily basis is post/reminisce bout stuff dat happened 10 yrs ago. So damn tired of checkin out old youtube videos & press clippings of the Dorsey days. Guarantee by 2morrow's end some ASSCLOWN is gonna post some old-ass 2001 highlights and word it...' IF THIS DON'T GET U PUMPED UP FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON!!!' Yeah, like watching old Ed Reed & Andre Johnson highlights got me optimistic bout da current situation.

360Cane

Sometimes I wonder who pissed in who's cereal 'round here...

:-/

4-Real

Not talkin bout da past talkin bout the present

CANED

I agree...I am optimistic...ya we look back at the past hoping the past is recreated...Its part of being a fan...Yes I am a FANATIC

solarcane

OGV,
I thought you were looking for OL sorry.
Wadsworth, and Renard(?) Wilson would be the only good DL noles I can think of right now

360Cane

Yea, I dig the reels too. Been a fan long enough to understand the cycles of college football. Great coaches come and they go. Great players come and go. We just in wait phase for this ish to iron itself out again. It will. Just gotta find that combination and of course, piping lady luck.

And who needs so many damn DTs in a 3 freaking 4?

solarcane

"U are the most negative, pessimistic person I have ever blogged with."


me and canechic just look at each other and go wtf...

solarcane

4 real,

I'll give Canefreak( that puts a ton of hours into collecting, editing and adding music to Cane highlights) a whole lot of credit, the dude does some nice work.
Why crack on him? He can't make hi lites of things that didn't happen over the last five years.

TonyCane

I've spent the last few weeks converting my old Canes games to DVD. Watching the games in 2004-2005 I noticed something that I had forgotten watching Miami the last couple of years. Passion. Enthusiasm. As much as Coker failed in recruiting an adequate number of quarterbacks and wide receivers, this guy was heads and shoulders above Shannon in terms of motivation. His teams may have degraded over the years in terms of talent, but Coker was not an automaton. His teams celebrated (see the Miami UNC game from 2005!). It was refreshing to see and I'd forgotten what it was like.

I hope Al Golden brings the same emotion to Miami when the play Maryland and deliver the death sentence to that Gamera-worshipping program.

Who needs 300 + lb defensive tackles anyway!!???


orange 'n green in the vein

4-Real, there's two options here:

1: Go back to AtlantaBravesChant.com and live in the past about those awesome 300 lbs recruits that didn't do sh!t in the pros with your fellow semen-holes.

2: Go back to my original response to you, read the name Fortson and then figure out he's still on the roster for at least one more year at UM and put a sock in it.

That's the problem. All u recruitniks do on a daily basis is post/reminisce bout stuff that happened in highschool three years ago. So dam tired of checkin out old youtube videos & press clippings of the senior prom days. Guarentee by 2morrow's end some RECRUITNIK is gonna post some old-ass 2010 highschool hilights and word it...' IF THIS DON'T GET U PUMPED UP FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON!!!' Yeah, like watching old Mario Edwards & James Hamilton highlights got me pessimistic bout da curent situation.
