I am so fired up I don't know if I can wait til gameday!!!! I am looking forward to a very good year. We will be tough and give it 110% for sure under AG....

CR and Dude,I agree 100 percent. When I played sandlot in the 60s, HS and college in the 70s it was so different. Not saying right, just more of a toughness thing that kind of went unsaid. Kids are very different now; you have to be easy and gentle at times in this rough game!!! It is very different now; heck my son played for me and I never touched him. I believe this....1) you can teach and emphasize in a loud voice, but you never let it get to berating a kid. 2) you never touch them except to shake their hand or hug em 3) you don't ever curse at or around them. 4)when its really personal, like an attitude, school or family problem you discuss it in private. That has worked for me going on 35 years....its my rules for me, coaches, parents whomever....it cannot happen on my watch, team or field!!!!!

That guy was wrong; perhaps a stronger discipline is needed to make it clear.

From Greg Cote at the Herald today...

Nobody formerly connected to the renegade/jailed booster Shapiro remains with the team. Everybody is ready to move on. Self-imposed penalties including two years of postseason bans already have been served. But the foot-dragging NCAA won't let this end, and with every day of further delay you get the uneasy sense that Mark Emmert's (pictured) corrupted, dysfunctional organization will levy additional penalties if only to justify the time and expense of its ponderous probe.

Miami has paid its price and the paying continues. The shamed NCAA needs to wrap this case up with nothing beyond minor additional sanctions -- and wrap it up now.

Watching those interviews... We finally are making men again in this program.

Anybody not interested in seeing this Dline is a zombie.

Man the young DBs are going to be good and part of our season relies on their maturity. Howard, bush, Jenkins, Crawford we need them to be the future and the present.

This season is so important. Morris has to lead us to the ACC championship game and more. Or else we could be set back even farther.

Golden is the man! He would be successful at whatever he did. I'm glad he is the head of our program!

Photos of the top six Miami offensive linemen grace the cover of the season’s first game notes package, marked by this Twitter hashtag: #GREATWALLOFCORALGABLES.

But even before the FAU game notes were distributed, Hurricanes coach Al Golden had changed the depth chart for the offensive line — shifting previous first-team left guard Jonathan Feliciano to starting right tackle, and previous starting right tackle Seantrel Henderson, a senior, to Feliciano’s backup.

It appears that Malcolm Bunche will now be the starting left guard for the 8 p.m. opener Friday — unless, of course, Golden decides to change the lineup again, which he said could still happen.

Either way, Golden said, the seven offensive linemen who will see game action are 6-4, 296-pound center Shane McDermott, 6-6; 319-pound guard Brandon Linder; 6-5, 318-pound tackle/guard Feliciano; 6-6, 315-pound tackle Ereck Flowers; 6-7, 327-pound guard/tackle Bunche; 6-8, 332-pound Henderson; and 6-5, 319-pound backup center/guard Jared Wheeler.

“For me right now, we’re playing seven in the game,” Golden said Monday during his pregame news conference. “If [ Taylor] Gadbois can make progress this week, there will be eight in the game. There are five that start, but they are all going to play a lot.

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

CORAL GABLES —

Al Golden has coached 24 games at the University of Miami, each one with the specter of NCAA sanctions looming over his program..

As UM prepares to begin its third season under Golden on Friday against Florida Atlantic, he admits he’s frustrated with the NCAA having yet to announce if the program will face further penalties stemming from the Nevin Shapiro case. Still, he wants his players to chase an ACC championship, not worry about chasing away noise from a scandal for which none of them are responsible.

“Man, I hope we have a mature group,” Golden said Monday. “I really do. I hope our guys are focused on one thing. That’s Florida Atlantic, and getting better every day. … We’ve done everything we can do at this stage.”

On Monday, players deflected the topic.

“I was waiting for one of y’all to break that question out,” senior quarterback Stephen Morris said to a group of reporters. “We’ve been going through it for a while. Our biggest thing is we’re always putting our trust in Coach Golden and President (Donna) Shalala and what they do. We’re not thinking about it. We’re not worrying about it. It is what it is right now.”

The NCAA began an investigation in 2011 into allegations that UM athletes received impermissible benefits from Shapiro and UM coaches from 2002-2010.

FAU’s receivers are what interests sophomore cornerback Tracy Howard, not any word from NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis.

“I ain’t even worried about that,” Howard said. “You brought it up. I wasn’t even thinking about it. … We have a game to win. I’m focused on FAU. Nothing else.”

WOW...REALLY???????

The NFL Players Association has filed a grievance against the New England Patriots on behalf of Aaron Hernandez, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The NFLPA is seeking to collect $82,000 in workout bonuses from Hernandez's contract, the source said. The tight end's deal was terminated by the team after he was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

A team can recover bonus money and avoid a cap hit if a player violates one of the league's personal-conduct policies or defaults on contract language.

Hernandez signed a five-year extension in August 2012 that was to keep him with the Pats through 2018. The extension had a total maximum value of $40 million with a $12.5 million signing bonus.

When looking solely at the signing bonus and base salaries, Hernandez earned $9.79 million of the extension.

The talk of the opening weekend of high school football was unquestionably the dismantling of Norcross (Ga.) High by Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington.

Washington entered the game the slight favorite, ranked No. 4 in the preseason RivalsHigh100 to the No. 5 spot given to Norcross. The 55-0 final was certainly not an expected outcome.

It produced two elephants in the room for rankings discussion: With so few games played this week, how far up could Washington move? And with so much talent returning, how far down should Norcross drop? Should it remain ranked at all?

The first problem was easier to answer as Washington moved up to the No. 2 spot on the strength of that victory. The move potentially sets up the first-ever No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle in the seven-year history of the RivalsHigh100 as Washington and No. 1 Miami (Fla.) Central will play in two weeks.

Even if it's legal and necessary, it still looks terrible. Perception is everything.

So Manziel met with the NCAA on Sunday and A&M expects to hear by Wed if he can play or not. Allllllllrighty then!

$EC. They help the NCAA make money and thus are at least somewhat protected. Yes, it's unfair. But it's a strong reality.

What the NCAA should be investigating is if the activities in the Sutrel bedroom are humanly possible.

LOL! I pulled up the MH online and saw Bunche's face, and thought I swear if he got kicked off the team I'm-a pass out.

Manziel told the NCAA he didn't take any money..guess that means the NCAA will let him play. He will be cleared before the week is out..watch and see.

I believe thurston will shock the world.

if he doesn't, he has a pretty good backup.

YEAH DEPTH!!!!!

UMike

Ohio..yea, I mentioned that yesterday lol..He got called out by quite a few people about posting information as if it were his, or as if he had inside information, when a lot of it was from other sources, mainly CanesInsight and UM. IDK what is or isn't true, but I have seen for myself him post a lot of info without giving credit to the source. That seems to have changed lol. Don't matter to me as long as people get information.

"So Papa Cane is now called @CanesNews? Guess he got some backlash about something?"

He's been getting heat for not citing sources the past few years. Most deservedly so.

CaneSpace is the place. Seriously. UMike's canine-like sense will have the article up in seconds after it's posted.

UMike

PapaCane or CanesNews is still a good place to get into and a good person to follow, he was just taking a lot of heat. I still am not sure if I believe he as any inside information, if he is/was fake or if he is a real insider who doesn't want no one to know who he is lol

UMike

good place to get info***

VA Cane

I really don't like Johnny Football....rich kid who thinks he is entitled to do anything he wants. Had a great year nice player....personally think and hope Alabama puts some serious wood on his rich boy azz....nothing like seeing guys like him get crushed....or knocked out....I have some friends connected to the program...Bama got both barrels loaded for him for sure. Newton got away with it, so did this guy....always hope somewhere down the line they get paid back....big time

Matt Porter saying Curtis Porter was moving fine in practice today...good news

Lets take it real easy with Porter against FAU, I want him nice and healthy against the gayturds.

herbieibis

Ok sports fans, The Herb has been away for a while And during his sabbatical he's noticed that we've dropped a few players, namely Grimble @ Edwards. The Herb liked Grimble at DE and obviously his head wasn't into playing DT @ He finds out that Dillard was a bona-fide cream puff, go figure. Recruiting looks pretty good but although the numbers look good, The Herb has to be honest and say we still need a big time LB, WR, DB and a big RB. Love Duke @ the 2 youngsters Powell @ Yearby But where's the beef? Don't know who's on the radar because for once The Herb hasn't been keeping up with recruiting. I know we have time and knocking off The Turds @ FSU will go along way in filling those 4 spots. Don't see no weakness in the offense but still not sold on our de-front and don't care how we do against FAU, it's what we do against Flo. and the other biggies we have on the schedule that matter. De No you have 6 games to impress The Herb and if he sees the same shyt, I'm taking the oars away and my fellow Spacers, will push that canoe out to sea. The Herb has spoken!

Al Golden is not talking to the media today..Was told he forgot and went to watch film


Golden forgets nothing. Conspiracy or NCAA is coming today. Your choice.

j.w.

lol, Ohio- I had those thoughts last week, learned the hard way not to expect anything. :) Seriously, Johnny Football and Cam Newton can get cleared in a week but they need 4 nearly 4 years with us? I'm fully aware of how they want to protect their pets, but this is beyind absurd.

UMike

Maybe Golden just didn't want to answer or hear another question or comment about the NCAA lol

Ohio_Cane

jw, it was just a joke lol

I was personally going with conspiracy until Beast tweeted this:


BrianTheBeastLondon ‏@MiamiRadioBeast 8m

Al has come to the media room to speak . Props to @ChrisYandle for working it out #Hero pic.twitter.com/pLA3241VNv

UMike

j.w...and to make it worse, it is obvious for all to see. of course Newton got cleard, no way they were going to risk the top SEC team losing its best player before a title game. Same as Johnny Fairyball, he is the face of the SEC right now, they cant afford for him not to play. Shot, SEC schools do their own 2 day investigation (see Clowny autograph issue) and report to the NCAA nothing happened and it magically goes away lol

VA Cane

I just don't like Newton or Fairyball; both kind of act like fairys. NCAA protection for favs is wrong; money talks you know. It would not bother me if either got concussed by a Tatumizer hit or took a knee shot....just to even the score...(VA laughs a devilish, evil little laugh....)

UMike

I am not going to say Manziel isn't a great athlete, but every time I see a highlight of him running with those tights he looks like a fairy lol..maybe there just long socks, IDK, but they look like tights to me lol

Clwtrdan

Thurston is listed as a junior even though he played his entire freshman year on the scout team. With the injury susceptibility at the outside linebacker position it is nothing but good to have them both ready to go.

I'm waiting for the NCAA to release a statement that goes something like, "Of course we scrutinize the SEC differently. It is an elite academic conference, dedicated to its students, and possessing the highest reputation. It's like our country. We judge the statements of Great Britain as far more certain than other countries."

j.w.

Ohio- I suspected that was what you were doing, I was just having fun with your statement. :) UMike- it is a total f'ing screwjob for Miami. They aren't even trying to pretend to be following the same set of rules for the $EC and us.

Ohio_Cane

Clint Hurtt reinstated by Louisville.

The end to the NCAA is near, folks.

UpNorthCane27

So wait he was reinstated? and no slap on the writs at least for this guy? you gotta believe Um will be just fine

Ohio_Cane

Brandon Odoi ‏@Brandon_Odoi 1m

So I just listened to Al Golden talk about freshman Walt Tucker. I think he's saying we want to RS him but won't if we need to play him. With Tucker, he's got no defined role and AG says he can "easily" play special teams. But doesn't look like they want to burn his shirt. When you consider losing Duke Johnson at RB in two years, OT next year along with Jimmy Gaines, having a versatile guy like Tucker is a gem.

UMike

Ohio..is being reinstated by Louisville and reinstated by the NCAA 2 different things?

Ohio_Cane

FWIW, I have NO idea what that means. I ASSUME (Yes, I know what U do when U assume...) that means they're confident he won't be hurt (no pun intended) by whatever comes out.

UMike

Louisville might be banking on their suspension of him being enough to satisfy the NCAA..who knows with this mess lol

Ohio_Cane

Golden said Curtis Porter played DT at 280-285 last year. He's 325 now. Lol

Now I'm just holding out hope he stays healthy.

PS - Renfrow is 320

Ohio_Cane

Olsen Pierre was also 280 last year. Now 303-305

I read the blurb on ESPN, my take is pretty similar- it looks like LOU won't do anything to Hurtt unless the NCAA forces them.

It's a pretty unusual move for Louisville to make if they don't already know what's going to happen to Hurtt. You don't want to put a guy out on the field if you might have to fire him in disgrace a month later.

The Tommy Streeter experiment fizzles out. He was cut by the Ravens.

Another Cane who left school too early and this is sad. Stay away from Rat face and listen to your coaches...When they say you have a thing or two you can still learn..listen to them.

I hope Tommy will find another team in the NFL.

This is just another lesson to our current players...The only underclassman who had good reasons to enter the draft was olivier Vernon 2 years ago...All the others should have returned one more year with the Canes.

If some are afraid to get injured, you just take a 10 million $ insurance Policy like Teddy Bridgewater did. You will get an easy loan to pay for it.

Try telling that to Paul Johnson about Al Groh last year.

Yes, I know the NCAA had nothing to do with that example, well nothing to do with it except hosting the pages of stats that led to his firing that is.

I like your prediction for the season nTonycane. A trip to a BCS bowl in Golden's third year puts the Canes on course to return to the apex of college football where they belong.

CoCane

Did Tonycane just predict our defense to only give up 15.8 points per game??? ('o')

You might as well predict 14-0 & a national title while you're at it. Lol

CoCane

I ain't predicting scores but I'll predict a 11-3 record...

JCane

FWIW, I saw that Elijah Hood, the 5 star RB who recently decommitted from NDU took the expected path of verbally picking UNC. No big surprise.

Looking forward to the real season starting. I don't think the U will even be challenged until the national championship game! ;)

Aaron Hernandez was reportedly a heavy user of angel dust. Also Urban Meyer may want to read the next Rolling Stone...

From Rolling Stone:

In college [Hernandez's] coach [then-University of Florida head coach Urban Meyer] may have helped cover up failed drug tests, along with two violent incidents -- an assault and a drive-by shootout outside a local bar...
