Some Canes camp observations. Don't see any catch and release players from the incoming class. Freshman like Coley, Burns, Muhammad can help.

Newcomers Kamulu, Gilbert and Renfrow might not be Hurricane Hall of Famers but they're men, not kids, giving the Canes size and strength.

According to Rivals, Edwards will be back Tuesday

So damn, Wu-Tang Clan was out this whole time...I thought I heard about em' in one of the scrimmages...

*** Another running back and new transfer, listed as 5-8, 198-pound junior DeAndre Johnson, has joined the Hurricanes roster from the University of Iowa. He is a Miamian and played with Stephen Morris at Monsignor Pace. In 2011 as a redshirt freshman at Iowa, Johnson ran for 79 yards on 18 carries in four games. He did not compete in 2012 and Golden said he believes he's eligible to play this season.

"I like DeAndre,'' Golden said. "He's got a lot to learn in terms of how we do it here in the offense but he wants to be a great teammate, he wants to compete, he's trying to get into special teams. He's got the requisite speed, he's got a good build, 196 or 198 pounds. Guys like that are awessome to have on the team. They can always play a role for us."

Way too early projections, cont.:

Round 2, pick 38: Morris to Arizona

Posted by: LB | August 15, 2013 at 03:48 PM

Its been a long time since we have had a quarterback projected this high going into his senior season. Although that is great, I believe he will end up getting drafted even higher with the good year that I think he and his teammates will have this year.

BigWindyCane1

With Gilbert (Broward native) and DeAndre (miami-Dade native), we have more S. Fla. recruits who left to attend Big 10 schools under Shannon, and are now being brought back home by Golden where they belong so that they can help the U make that magical run this year back to the top of college football.

I want to rehash a rumor that was thrown out here.

Stephen Morris partying and not caring after wins.

I don't know if they are true but I was a college athlete. I'm not sure if OGV was. Almost after every Saturday game, although I played d2 there was a party for the football players where a decent amount of guys got intoxicated. The guys that didn't where there to pick up girls.

We all appreciated Morris being a coach last year when he was hurt. He grew from that. The bottome line though is he is getting a lot of press this preseason and he is blowing up even more on campus and in Miami in general. We all know the women in Miami can be the hottest and most scandalous in the world.

I hope he is ready for the upcoming season and doesn't let the hype get to his head. If anybody believes this season doesn't hinge on Stephen you're crazy. We don't have a world beater defense but with an elite QB our offense has the talent to win 9-10 games easily with this schedule. Anything less is a failure.

The time is now for Stephen and I hope he understands the ramifications cause we are talking millions for the first 2 rounds but if he has a bad season he could easily be undrafted. That is how much of a variable he is.

In other news ...

Researchers surveyed Emergency Room patients who’d been drinking. They found that Budweiser was the number one brand consumed, followed Steel Reserve Malt Liquor, Colt 45 malt liquor, Bud Ice (another malt liquor), Bud Light, and a discount-priced vodka called Barton’s.

Though Budweiser has 9.1 percent of the national beer market, it represented 15 percent of the of the E.R. “market.” The disparity was even more pronounced for Steel Reserve. It has only .8 percent of the market nationally, but accounted for 14.7 percent of the E.R. market. In all, Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice, and another malt liquor, King Cobra, account for only 2.4 percent of the U.S. beer market, but accounted for 46 percent of the beer consumed by E.R. patients.

Once a prized four-star recruit out of Miami’s Booker T. Washington High School, Clements (5-9, 182 pounds) is no longer chasing NFL dreams or setting lofty goals for himself. He knows exactly where he stands at the University of Miami — a backup to star running back Duke Johnson, somebody he says is just happy to be back out on the field.

“My whole thing is just to finish healthy,” said Clements, who in 31 games in three seasons at Miami has run for 184 yards and three touchdowns on 39 carries and caught 17 passes for 183 yards while also registering 13 tackles on special teams.

“I really don’t have any goals right now. It seems like every time I come up with goals they don’t happen. So basically, my goal is to do whatever the team wants and help them accomplish team goals this year. Whatever I can do to help, those are my goals.”

Nicknamed “OT” for Overtown, Clements is beloved by his teammates and coach Al Golden. When Clements scored a touchdown in last Sunday’s closed scrimmage, his teammates lifted him up in celebration.

“He’s not the biggest running back in the world, but he’s definitely one of the toughest and a great dude,” center Shane McDermott said.

Por que? Singular straw break moment or just been to enough to last a lifetime already?

The Dude

I'm not really sure how Golden is able to collect all these players, but its good depth if nothing else. I believe Golden when he says we have actual competitions now for playing time. We have a full team. I don't think its as talented as the teams Butch built, but winning this year will be the key for next. Like Ohio says, win and they will come. I think we are ready to start winning. 12-0 until otherwise. Just gonna have fun routing for this young dynamic offense and hope for improvement on D.

SOUP

OGV...It used to be SO MUCH BETTER. So here are the reasons why I will NOT go:

1. They hold it inside the BUC in a side or practice area and it is like a dungeon in there. No lights, no windows and very depressing.

2. It is VERY controlled in terms of access and the crowd. They herd U like SHEEP and they smack U if U step out of line.

3. No more autographs except for the poster.

4. Drive three hours, pay toll and gas, to talk to one player and get MAYBE one autograph or photo?

NOT HAPPENING!

I HEAR U GUYS,CANEFEST HAS REALLY CHANGED.I'M ONLY GOING FOR MY SON .MAYBE SPEND 20 MINS WALKING AROUND THEN ALLCANES FOR SOME SHOPPING

UMike

Airz workin..

FOOTBALL TEAM
**The team will scrimmage tomorrow for the second time. “It’s time to cut the cord with some of these guys. It can’t be about screaming from the sideline. They’re going to have crowd noise and music so they’ve gotta learn the signals and be independent thinkers out there,” said Golden.

---More from Golden on tomorrow’s scrimmage: “What we’ll try to do is have orange on one side and white on the other. There’s a sense of comfort if you just go offense and defense because if I’m the second-team guard I’m just looking at Linder and waiting for when coach calls me. I think the biggest thing is that they learn how to go on and off the field with the sub patterns and it makes them think fast.”

**Golden confirmed today that Preston Dewey would be with the team this fall despite his absence from camp thus far.

**According to Golden, freshman RB Augustus Edwards is dealing with an NCAA Clearinghouse issue that should be resolved shortly. Edwards has not participated in the last couple practice, but is expected back in time for the first game.

**Golden was asked if the team would have any days off between now and the first game against Florida Atlantic, he said, “Any days off? You sound like one of the players (laughs).”

**The backup running back competition seems to be narrowed in between Dallas Crawford and Eduardo Clements, which should not be a surprise, but Gus Edwards is also impressing Duke Johnson. “Gus can come in right away and play. He’s learning the playbook fast and he has the will to want to play and want to learn,” said Johnson

**Golden pointed out completion percentage as an area that needs to be improved upon during practice and Stephen Morris chimed in. “We definitely need to improve on completion percentage. I think that the best way to do that is to just take what the defense is giving you and not force anything. All camp we've been stressing accuracy and decision-making from the quarterback’s room and I think Coach Coley is doing an unbelievable job of stressing that every day with us,” said Morris. Allen Hurns added, “We just need to be precise on our routes.”

**From all accounts, Wisconsin OLB/DE transfer David Gilbert has made an early impression and seems like a player who will be able to impact the team this year.

**The depth of the offensive line was viewed as one of the strengths of the team heading into camp, but the injury bug bit the unit as Hunter Knighton (out for season, shoulder) and Danny Isidora (three months, foot) suffered injuries. There still seems to be enough behind the starting five between Malcolm Bunche/Ereck Flowers, Jared Wheeler, Sonny Odogwu, and Hunter Wells, but it’s unfortunate to see these injuries. Isidora is a redshirt freshman, while Knighton is a true freshman who arrived in January.

FOOTBALL RECRUITING
**Here are a few tidbits I picked up from last Saturday’s Dolphins HS Media Day at Sun Life Stadium:
---I spoke with Dillard QB Bud Martin and asked him about his teammate Dennis Turner (Miami commit) and Martin couldn’t stop raving about him. “People will definitely find out about him this season. He can do it all. His speed is unreal and he can play receiver, defensive back, whatever. Miami got a really good one,” said Martin.

---I spoke to a Champagnat Catholic coach who told me that Travonte Valentine is in the 320-325 weight range right now, as opposed to the 345 he arrived in Miami at. An in-shape Valentine will be a nightmare for opposing defenses this season.

---A name generating a lot of buzz for Miami Northwestern is 2015 defensive back Khalid McGee. Mike Smith, Ryan Mayes, Shermarke Spence (yes, Sean’s little brother), and head coach Stephen Field have had nothing but great things to say about McGee. I heard that McGee also performed very well at UGA camp over the summer. McGee is on the shorter side at 5’8”, but is a playmaker. I’m excited to see what he does this season considering the high praise he has received.

---Tito Benach spoke with Alin Edouard at the event and Edouard told Tito that he hasn’t been able to get in contact with the Miami coaches at all recently. Edouard told Tito that he planned to meet with the coaches after Sunday’s scrimmage. The Miami QB commit told Tito on Monday that he did not end up meeting with the coaches on Sunday, so that issue is still in the air. There is also talk that Louisville pulled Edouard’s offer so it’s going to be interesting to see how things develop with him and Miami. It is still unlikely he winds in the class.

---A player to watch from Columbus is 2017 DB Trajan Bandy. People might think I’m crazy to mention an incoming high school freshman, but the bloodlines are strong here as Bandy’s cousin is Deon Bush. I’m told that Bandy is in line to start at cornerback for the Explorers, which is an extremely rare feat for a freshman at Columbus. The last few players from Columbus to get significant playing time freshman year? Notre Dame LB Anthony Rabasa, FIU RB Jakhari Gore, and Louisville RB Brandon Radcliff.

**I’ve mentioned this previously, but it will be very interesting to see what the coaches do with the safety position. From this class, Ryan Mayes could slide back into that spot, but I don’t see him as having a safety’s mentality. As I posted last week, Trayone Gray has a long ways to go to be able to qualify plus he prefers playing offense. Miramar’s Andre Godfrey is a name that has generated some buzz recently and I’m told that Miami is still in contact with him. Michael Johnson from Champagnat (Louisville commit) is a prospect who I’m a fan of, but a Champagnat coach told me that Miami told him “he’s not what they’re looking for”.

**Here are my recent interviews with Dalvin Cook and Central HC Roland Smith: http://www.canesinsight.com/content/...land-Smith-Q-A
http://www.canesinsight.com/content/...istening-to-UM
Something I would like to add about Miami’s recruitment of Cook is the connection between ‘Canes running backs coach Hurlie Brown and Roland Smith. Brown and Smith played in the same defensive backfield at Miami and I’m told the two still have a very good relationship to this day. Having Smith on Miami’s side with Cook definitely can’t hurt.

**The news of Ernest Suttles winding up at Memphis was a tricky situation. He did sign with Miami, but it seems like administrative higher-ups did not clear the signing. The coaches wanted him, but administration didn’t want the baggage stemming from his situation at Nebraska.

**I hate to beat a dead horse on the subject, but here’s the bottom-line about Quincy Wilson, Ermon Lane, and Chris Lammons committing to UF. Quincy Wilson did not have a Miami offer (a subject that has been discussed countless times) so that wasn’t a “loss” in the eyes of the staff. Ermon Lane was a player that Miami wanted, but for whatever reason their opinion of him wasn’t as high as their opinion of others such as Johnnie Dixon and Darrell Langham. Lammons was a prospect who Miami got on earlier than basically any of the big programs, but it became increasingly evident as the months went on that it was either going to be Nigel Bethel II or Lammons in the class, so things cooled down with him after Bethel committed.

2014 Blanche Ely outside linebacker Terry McCray has been not only working on the field with his team to get plays down, but has also been trying to connect them off the field and build a sense of unity.

“Right now, we’ve been together a lot. We just try and come together, we have like barbecue’s to get a better connection, but right now I think my team, (Blanche) Ely, would be the team to beat.”

McCray is hoping to end on a good note with the Tigers and is making the effort to be the a senior leader on both sides of the field.

“I try to show the younger guys, how to show college coaches what they want in a kid, like ‘be on time,’ ‘be consistent’ and also be dedicated to the game.”

McCray gave his pledge to the Hurricanes a couple of weeks back and remains a solid commitment.

“Yes, I’m still a hundred percent.”

The 6’3, 210 pound linebacker has taken notice of the class Coach Golden is building this year and is anxious to suit up with many of them next year.

“I love it and one of the things I love is half of us are from South Florida. For a while schools like Alabama and LSU, they had been taking all the guys from down here and we couldn’t get them to Miami, but Coach Golden made a good effort to get kids to stay.”

Camp notes: Miami Hurricanes’ Gus Edwards has eligibility issue
by Matt Porter

Miami running back Gus Edwards, expected to be a big bruiser to help take the load off star tailback Duke Johnson, has hit a roadblock.

Edwards has not been at practice this week. Coach Al Golden explained it by saying the 6-foot-2, 230-pound true freshman has an eligibility issue.

“He’s got to take care of a couple clearinghouse issues,” Golden said. “It’s not anything that he’s academically deficient in. It’s really just a clearinghouse deal. As soon as he’s cleared to go, he’s good to go. That should be any day now.”

The clearinghouse Golden refers to is the NCAA Eligibility Center, which ensures Division I and II student-athletes are eligible to practice and play. Edwards practiced during the first week of camp, but was pulled off the field.

A UM spokesman said Edwards was cleared by the NCAA to practice, but the Eligibility Center noticed an issue. CaneSport.com reported Edwards could be back Tuesday.

Edwards, a three-star recruit from Staten Island, N.Y., was the nation’s No. 1 fullback according to Rivals.com.

Scott OK: Receiver Rashawn Scott was in a red (no-contact) jersey on Wednesday, but Golden said he didn’t know what was wrong. Maybe, he said, Scott had a foot injury. “Unless it’s really significant, those guys have to work it through with the trainers,” Golden said. “I think he’ll be ready to go. There he is now.” As Golden spoke, Scott walked by in a full uniform, signifying he is back to full health.

Dewey returning? Golden continues to squash rumors about Preston Dewey’s departure. The redshirt freshman quarterback, who appears to be fifth on UM’s depth chart behind starter Stephen Morris, backup Ryan Williams and young standouts Gray Crow and Kevin Olsen, has not yet reported for practice. That has led to the feeling that Dewey, who reportedly has a back injury, is looking for another place to play. Golden said last week Dewey would return eventually, and repeated that Thursday. “He’ll be with us shortly,” he said. “We’re respecting his time and privacy.”

Scrimmage looms: Miami’s second and final scrimmage of camp is Friday. Plenty of jobs are on the line. The scrimmage will be as close to a game simulation as possible.

“It’s time to cut the cord with some of these guys,” he said.

Leading in, Golden wants to see better tackling and a higher completion percentage, expressing his disappointment with not seeing an experienced offense finish more plays.

“We got to get the tackling squared away fast because that will rear its head in the opener [against FAU],” he said. “You don’t want to be a day late on that. A bad tackling performance in an opener can destroy you.

“There’s no excuse for the completion percentage to be the way it is. With the experience that we have, with the protection that we’re getting, and the type of quarterback we have leading us, there’s no excuse for that.

Quote of the day comes from Duke Johnson, who raised a high eyebrow worthy of ex-UM defensive tackle Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson when asked which linebacker has the best shot of chasing him down.

“Chase … me … down?” Johnson said.

For what it’s worth, Johnson said Denzel Perryman is the team’s best pursuit linebacker. “He’ll get there and make the tackle nine times out of 10,” Johnson said.

Most to all college players party and chase girls. That I don't care about. I was fortunate enough to marry a hot chick, so go for it.

As long as 1. they don't get caught doing something stupid and 2. it doesn't distract, I'm good. Don't be a putz like Manziel, Urban Meyer's players, or the Gators who in truth embody the tired connotations of UM.

Just a reminder: starting college quarterbacks have the microscope on them. They're the CEO. They are the face and thus held to higher standards.

Cities are willing to pay millions of dollars to save or move a house that is deemed historic just for the fact that it is old so about 15 people a year can walk through it. But they wouldn't want to save a stadium that is just as old where countless historical events have happened and about 800,000 people a year walk through it. It all makes sense to me how about you?

Not to worry the OB will return in 25 years. The same moronic city goverement that ruined the OB doeesnt even realize they are planning to start rebuilidng it now. When they move the Florida Marlins to the OB site. They will effectively seal the fate of the Marlins. No one from North Broward or Palm Beach will come to the games. It is to far of a drive. No one wants to tail gate in a parking garage. I have a feeling alot of people not living in Miami may feel alienated (however spelled) when they cahnge the name from Florida Marlins to Miami Marlins. With all of this said and alot of other reasons of why it is a bad idea to move the Marlins to the OB site, I believe the Marlins will move cities due to financial reasons with in 5-10 years of their move to the OB site. And the City of Miami will be left with a brand new unoccupied stadium with no team to play host too. So the city will stop putting money into it. 15-20 years later when the Hurricanes contract is up with Dolphin stadium. The Canes put up the money combined with some assanign (however spelled) deal by the city to fund half of it to convert the stadium to a football stadium. So in the end (25 years from now) the Canes will be back at th OB site playing in a run down stadium that the city didnt keep up. It will all come full circle.

86,

Vault my last. You can store it in the back. Then we will pull it out and dust it off after 25 years.

UMike...if you go back and look through the archives and look at the body of work that Canespace has produced over the last 7-8 years it is quite impressive indeed.

UP TO 105 AND COUNTING:

UM coach Al Golden on Aug. 10 wouldn’t elaborate on Dye’s status, other to say, “He’s on the injured reserve for us’’ and to add that “he’s still rehabbing’’ and “doesn’t count against the 105’’ on the roster.

Posted by: UpNorthCane | August 16, 2013 at 10:23 AM

Yeah, and 1 of em' left the team (Reid), got kicked off (Ray-Ray), and haven't played that much (Wheeler).

Although I think Wheeler still has a shot at Guard this year.

CoCane

I don't remember posting that. Not even a little bit. LMAO

I do remember really wanting us to get Smith, Debose, Telfort, Ray Ray, Charles, Reid & Wheeler. So that's definitely me.

UpNorth, yeah we whiffed like mutha fukka on most of them. Lol

CoCane

CaneRock,

The only ones that balled in college are the ones we DIDN'T get. Lol

CaneRock

Wasn't McCaskill the one that got burned by Debose in the State C'ship...

I seem to recall that there was a lil' buzz around Him, and then the Debose thing happened, and the buzz cooled down.

Sad if it happened that way, I liked Him as a Safety.

Terrance Sullivan

Looking back on those old articles are priceless. We are locked into Sun Life until the 2033 season and honestly I dont see us leaving. Man its 2 weeks till Gameday so amped up. Go Canes!

UpNorthCane27

For real Coke we def did whiff on those boys... i still feel bad for Frankie Telfort had to give up football because of a heart condition, but that boy can run and hit like a mutha***.. I really liked Bostic too thought he was a good player and if last night's hit he put on a dude from the chargers means anything he wouldve been a beast for us instead of the gaytors.

MAN, I HATE IT WHEN THIS HAPPENS:

The National Park Service says a grizzly bear charged a group of hikers in Yellowstone National Park, leaving two people injured, including one person who suffered bite and claw wounds.

Four people had hiked a few miles down a trail southwest of Canyon Village when they spotted a young grizzly bear around 11:30 Thursday morning. A sow grizzly appeared nearby and charged them.

LB

Apparently AQM (it just sounds cooler than "Quan") smacked Stephen Morris. I'm sure he'll do some laps, but man...

...defensive players with an edge? Sign me up.

UMike

Quan and Figatron arent your average freshman and will provide a spark and dare I sat.."swag" to the D this year

CaneRock

---Tito Benach spoke with Alin Edouard at the event and Edouard told Tito that he hasn’t been able to get in contact with the Miami coaches at all recently. Edouard told "Tito that he planned to meet with the coaches after Sunday’s scrimmage. The Miami QB commit told Tito on Monday that he did not end up meeting with the coaches on Sunday, so that issue is still in the air. There is also talk that Louisville pulled Edouard’s offer so it’s going to be interesting to see how things develop with him and Miami. It is still unlikely he winds in the class."

HUH?!
I thought He went to the team BBQ...

I think AQM "pulled him down", like a sack..I dont think he actually smacked him lol

UpNorthCane27

Muy interesante:

What about college football? With its 12 game season and 119 teams each home game is – generally – an event. Yet the average college football game between 2008 and 2011 only saw 80% attendance. Meanwhile, in 2010, 13-1 Nevada played in front of home crowds filled to 65% of capacity and 5-7 Texas sold out every game. What, then, drives college football attendance?

At the request of Winthrop Intelligence and with the help of Ed Gunther at The National Championship Issue I parsed through three years worth of attendance data to find out. Here are some of my findings, as well as some suggestions on how schools can improve ticket sales:

AQM didn't literally smack Morris. He sacked him even tho he was wearing the no contact jersey for QBs.

I personally love it. Now, had Morris gotten hurt, I wouldn't love it so much, but do love the competitive side from him. Need more guys like that on D

thirstybuzzardcane

I like the nickname Twitch for AQM!!!

Soup,

So according to the Harvard study, Miami should become a public school, have a lot more students and win more and we'll be ok on attendance. Hope that wasn't from a n expensive grant.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup that was an interesting and overall good article from that Harvard Study U posted. I still say there is no reason why the Canes should average less than 60,000 fans a game I get that its in a 16th largest TV market Miami/Fort Lauderdale and if U want to combine it with the West Palm Beach/Port St Lucie TV Market which is 38th then I havent mentioned the Fort Meyers TV Market which i think is like 75th. There is like 7.5 million people within 2 hours of Sun Life Stadium I am sure our Canes with their championship history and pedigree deserves at least 60,000 fans per game. IJS. Go canes and i didnt mention the thousands of people who live more than 2 hours from Sun Life that drive to see our Canes play.

j.w.

Soup, DBC got attacked again? Poor guy.

Shocking ...

Orlando Sentinel columnist Beth Kassab, recently published excerpts of a message sent by the university’s athletic director to former Gator season ticketholders. The note pointed out there are “more affordable tickets” lately, and pleaded with them to come out for at least a home game or two—ideally for matchups against lesser opponents like Toledo and Georgia Southern, which have been selling particularly poorly.
