Whoever said that Burns and Coley are gonna get some serious PT this year was right.



Terrance Sullivan

CaneZilla beating Florida aint shocking the world. Florida aint Bama come on bro.


Ok. 4 questions about the depth chart...

Why is Feliciano starting over Henderson?

Where is Tyriq McCord on the depth chart?

What source did this depth chart come from?

Is this the final depth chart for the FAU game?


feliciano over henderson? hmmmmmmm...

Terrance Sullivan

I am assuming its the final depth chart Coke mane. But excellent questions.



Good 4 questions!! I need answers to em

The Dude

Same questions I had CoCane.


1. Why is Feliciano starting over Henderson?

2. Where is Tyriq McCord on the depth chart?

3. What source did this depth chart come from?

4. Is this the final depth chart for the FAU game?

Posted by: CoCane | August 25, 2013 at 10:18 PM

1. Because Mrs. Feliciano said so.

2. LOST?

3. This is direct from UM.

4. YES


Not starting does not mean not playing. Everyone relax on Seantrel. McCord is interesting, and I have no answer


Ohio, UMike, OGV and Coke...check email.


I just watched the btw vs norcross game. Chad Thomas is a beast. And Jackson looks pretty good too. Good call by Golden and staff. Also heard a lot of talk from luginbill. Espn seemed very impressed the way coach has held it together. It's encouraging to see the rest of the nation taking notice. Can't wait for a Fau beat down. Go Canes


Come seantrel ! But it all together for just one damn year !




Would love to hear the answer to Coke's questions. We need answers.


My hunch is Ty will be used as a pass rush specialist on 3rd downs and thus is not listed as a true LB.

Just keep those East side goons under wraps.

The Dude

Give Seantrel a TE's number and line up in a jumbo package.

The Dude

WWiN, he better jump on that bus then, lol.



How does fatherhood feel?

The Dude

My wife read that question. She said to tell you I have it easy.

The Dude



We should know more about McCord
today from Al Golden. I hope no one is suspended for any game this season. A team on a mission!!!

The best is yet to come with the Canes!


Is it possible that McCord doesn't have 1 set position, thus no spot? lol


Ariz workin...

I was on-hand today for the ESPN Kickoff double-header of University School-Homestead and Cypress Bay-American Heritage. University won the first game 41-21, while American Heritage won 38-14. Here are some observations from today's action.

Top Performers
1. 2014 University School WR Chris Taylor (Duke)
The Duke commitment has flown under-the-radar, but if he plays like this the rest of the season, there could be some bigger programs after him. Taylor hauled in three touchdown receptions on the day. He is a very smooth route runner who will be able to catch a lot of balls in Duke’s offense.

2. 2014 American Heritage ATH Isaiah McKenzie
McKenzie would have been number one on this list if not for two of his touchdowns being called back. I have mentioned McKenzie since last season as a dynamic playmaker who has enough versatility to affect the game in all three phases. He had two punt return touchdowns called back because of penalty, but you could see his explosiveness on display in both instances. He also took a screen pass on the last play of the half for a 60-yard touchdown. McKenzie is a Notre Dame lean.


3. 2015 Homestead ATH Devonte Davis
Davis is the name on this list that people know the least about. I had mentioned him back in the summer after watching him perform with the tight ends at an Al Golden football camp, but the plays he made today were at the cornerback position. Davis showed great ball skills on the two picks and anticipated the first one perfectly. He also made a couple of catches on the offensive side of the ball. I will be interested to see how Davis performs the rest of the season. He is physical enough to play safety as well.

4. 2014 American Heritage RB Sony Michel (Georgia)
Michel showed flashes of being back to his pre-ACL injury self. He scored twice and the second touchdown showed why he is such a freak. He broke through the line of scrimmage and then made a vicious cut on a defender to burst into the open field. When comparing him to Dalvin Cook and Joseph Yearby, Michel has more of a power component to his game. Here is the referenced run:


5. 2014 American Heritage CB Juwan Dowels (Northern Illinois)
Dowels doesn’t receive the hype that his teammate Tarvarus McFadden receives, but he showed today that he will make quarterbacks pay if they test him. Dowels was solid in coverage all day long and made a nice interception in tight coverage along the sideline.

See the rest here..


Tito workin..

2014 Miami Central (Fla.) running back Dalvin Cook helped secure the 44-13 win over Dwyer with two touchdowns. Now the focus turns to next week when the Rockets take on American Heritage.

“We know what we are capable of doing, we just have to limit the flags and we still have to execute and just try to keep the refs out of the way of our game.”

Cook is excited to play against not only another top ranked team, but matched up against one of the top running backs in the nation in Sony Michel.

“It just brings a rush to me and tells me I need to bring my A game, but I know I have to step it up for next week and try to make some plays.”

The Florida commitment remains strong in his pledge to the gators and is excited to watch them this season.

“I’m solid with Florida right now.”

The 6’0 210 pound running back is looking to attend as many home games for Florida as he can, but is also looking to make some visits to other schools.

More Tito...

2014 Dwyer (Fla.) receiver Johhnie Dixon was part of a deflating 44-13 loss to Miami Central on Saturday night which now makes him believe they need to put in more focus during the week.

“We gotta get more focused in practice, we weren’t mentally prepared. We have to practice way more harder and come in with more intensity.”

Dixon still feels positive for the rest of the season as his team looks to make a deep playoff run and is trying to take it one game at a time.

“We’re looking at everyone, I mean this was a wake up call for the season. Mark Kelly our D-linemen, he’s a clown, but after this game he’s focused now I can tell.”

The 5’11 195 pound receiver has a top 3 of Miami, Alabama and Ohio State and recently got a chance to see the Hurricanes scrimmage and hang out with the coaches.

“It went great, met a lot of commits, a lot of great players. I talked to a couple of the current players and it was good. I talked to Herb (Waters), Duke (Johnson), Stacy (Coley) and Malcolm (Lewis). They were telling me that the whole team is family.”

While there, he also got the chance to speak with the coaches who are doing what they can to try and get Dixon on board.

“The same old, that they want me to commit and they want me to be apart of the team.”

Visits are going to be paramount in Dixon’s decision as he has set up two already for Alabama and Ohio State.

“I’m going to Alabama versus LSU and then also Ohio State versus Wisconsin.”

The Dwyer receiver is currently unsure whether Miami will get a visit, considering he’s visited so many times already.

“Not sure yet, I mean I probably won’t have to because I already know the place so well with the campus and the coaches.”

Per Thread Killa @ CIS and 247..

Miami still recruiting Lane hard

-Lane says Miami, FSU, and Alabama are 3 schools still recruiting him hard

-Will be going to the Miami/Florida game



I know we lost out on Sony Michel from American Heritage, but I hope the staff stays on that program. Mike Rumph is the coach and they have a lot of future talent. They have a freaking 6'5" 306lb FRESHMAN starting at right tackle, kid is 15!!!


Also..Powell is the real deal and might make people forget about Cook if we don't flip him. The buzz about Powell will pick up as the season goes on.


Alabama dt Braxton Hoyett 2 decide Friday after his game between Miami & Mississippi st. Other offers include uab & Samford? Sigh...


4-Real...he will be going to Mississippi State so don't worry lol


I also think Rivals dropped him, he is a now a 2-Star, he was at least a 3-Star not that long ago


"Whoever said that Burns and Coley are gonna get some serious PT this year was right."

He was right, wasn't he?



Duke made #3 on HD list..

No. 3. Duke Johnson, RB, Miami

Previous ranking: No. 11

Making the case for Johnson: He had what was arguably the greatest freshman season in school history. Still need more? Johnson, who was named the ACC’s overall and offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, was one of the ACC’s most electric kick returners, and he set the school single-season record with 892 kick return yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a freshman-record 947 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 2,060 all-purpose yards were the second-most in program history.

Johnson played in all 12 games last year and made five starts. He also had six games with 200-plus all-purpose yards and four 100-yard rushing games. He was named the ACC’s Rookie of the Week a league-best five-times. It’s possible Johnson could be even better this fall, as all five starters return on the offensive line, and the Canes have one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Stephen Morris.



The question is blunt because there is no other way to ask. Miami is not a place where the subject should be tiptoed around, anyway.

The question to coach Al Golden: "Shouldn't Miami, given its history, its tradition and its location, be a program that wins at least 10 games every single season?"

Golden shoots right back: "In terms of what?"

The question is repeated nearly word-for-word.

"You mean once we stabilize and move forward?" he asked. "Absolutely. That's why I chose the University of Miami and that's why I stayed at the University of Miami. … I think it's fair to say that the standards are high at the University of Miami for sure."

It is also fair to say that Miami has failed to meet those standards for years now, much to the frustration of a proud fan base and an even prouder network of alumni -- players who helped bring the program back from the brink of devastation.

Miami, of course, is not the only big-name program that has fallen on hard times in recent years. Nebraska has. Tennessee has. Their championship droughts have lasted longer. But those two programs never won five national titles over a 20-year period plus playing for five more championships along the way. Those two programs are not in natural recruiting hot spots, where coaches trip over top high school talent without going very far.

Those two programs have not churned out NFL draft picks at the rate Miami has over the past 20 years, either. For the swaggering, swashbuckling, in-your-face Hurricanes, the standards they set and the havoc they wreaked have been too much for even them to reach.

Consider that Miami has yet to play for an ACC championship, after dominating its previous conference, the Big East. Its men's basketball team, living in the long football shadow, won a league title before its gridiron counterpart. Perhaps more important, its football recruiting classes have consistently yielded top-15 rankings over the past eight years, yet many of its high-end prospects failed to pan out. Blame can be spread, save for one place. The recent downslide has little to do with the ongoing NCAA investigation. Yes, that investigation has clouded most of Golden's tenure in Coral Gables. Yes, Miami had to self-impose two postseason bans, including one that cost it a spot in the ACC title game.

But the downturn began before then. Way before then.

In fact, it started after Miami made four straight BCS appearances between 2000-03. Miami has not won 10 or more games since 2003 and hasn't had an All-American since 2005. But every year, the expectations remain the same, only setting up the annual letdown.

"To speak honestly, going to the University of Miami nowadays, it's understanding that where you are going comes with the full expectation you want to win a national championship year in and year out," said Texans center Chris Myers, a freshman on the 2001 national championship team.

Just look at the windscreens that surround the new practice field. They feature photos of former Miami All-Americans. And pictures of all five championship rings. Those championship trophies are now on display for the players to see every time they walk into their new athletics facility. They are meant to serve as reminders of the past, of what can be accomplished here.

Also..Powell is the real deal and might make people forget about Cook if we don't flip him. The buzz about Powell will pick up as the season goes on.

Cook and Lane are Gatahs, let it go.

Just wanna know if I will have one to rock, or if I need to buy one before then lol...gonna go old school with the camo shorts for this game..first time for me.


UMike...YES, I did. Cook and Lane will both be Gatahs AND among the two, the ONLY one I would want at UM is Cook, NOT Lane.
