Bitter, angry racist types who can't get on a real blog so they go there to spew hate. Nothing to see here, move along, move along...

Terrance Sullivan

Well said Soup ^^^^^^^^^. I am calling it now 52 Canes 7 Bulls! Go Canes!


OK, anybody here like MountainCane or AntCane that posts on the MH blog is not welcome here. If you want to incite riots and blog bullying do it somewhere else. Do not post there or do not post here. Free country, your choice.

The offenders there are Calvin, Albuquerque and Zakkee. Old banned bloggers that we do not need to feed attention to. Why the heck would U go there to read that trash anyway?

That is all.

BTW did dorsett play last night? don't recall him being mentioned


"Hurricanes Go Deep"...

I'm sorry, but:


Terrance Sullivan

Dorsett played he didnt do much. I expect he probably will go ham on USF.


Dwayne Johnson ‏@TheRock 42m

Insane? Yeah. Step closer to the goals? Yeah. Willing to outwork my competitors? Hell yeah. 3:20am. Cardio starts now. #RaiseTheBar

Terrance Sullivan

LOL Ohio Cane.


Doing the Tampa Two Step is gonna be a FUN time!

Donnie Donns

Dorsett's stock is falling....fast.

Sarasota 'cane

Maybe a Heisman trophy? Fing Gator fan wandering the blogosphere like a babbling idiot! Better get to bed son, that "short bus" comes early tomorrow!

Go 'canes!


If anyone think Georgian.


I met Zakee in Chicago for the ND game he seemed like an OK guy, his wife was a nice lady, i did not even realize he was banned.

Dorsett is fine, he has made some mistake but the season is young, We played 2 scrimages, in the UF game his TD provided the winning margin. He is not a complete rec but last year he broke out with one of the best statistical years we have seen here.

He will play better as the year goes on and we need him to.


First..let me eat my crow about the Canes not covering of scoring 70, but I guess I overestimated the awfulness of SSU lol


### Few, if any, grand conclusions can be made from UM's 77-7 thumping of Savannah State on Saturday night, considering how dreadful the competition is. A few postgame items: The coaches decided at halftime that the fourth quarter would be cut to 12 minutes. That, combined with UM making no particular effort to score in the fourth quarter, left the Canes short of the school record for yardage (689 against UCLA in 1998.) UM finished with 637 yards of offense, to Savannah State's 183. "Al Golden is a heck of a guy," Savannah State coach Earnest Wilson said.. UM topped its school record for points by two but fell five short of Clemson's ACC record for points in a game (82)....

Of all the freshmen, Gus Edwards (12 for 113 on the ground and three touchdowns), Stacy Coley (88-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a 25-yard TD reception) and Al-Quadin Muhammad (two sacks) had the best nights, but several freshmen who hadn't played much got a lot of work, including linebacker Jermaine Grace, whom Golden challenged afterward to "study the game more, prepare more" and become more of a factor on special teams....

The supremely confident Muhammad said college football "is not what I expected.... It's fast. A lot of signals... I was upset about not getting any sacks yet" before Saturday.... Though Duke Johnson seemed in discomfort when he left late in the first quarter, Golden said both he and Stephen Morris (who had an ankle sprain) are fine. But Morris' situation warrants monitoring; Golden said Morris will stay off his feet for 48 hours.... Third-string quarterback Gray Crow, on his 6 for 6 passing night (55 yards): "Someone said when opportunity knocks, it knocks very quietly."... UM said it used 81 - 81! - players in the game.

University of Miami coach Al Golden said quarterback Stephen Morris should be full-go for the USF game Saturday at noon in Tampa.

Morris sustained what was believed to be a sprained right ankle Saturday in the first quarter of UM’s 77-7 victory against Savannah State, but Golden said Sunday that Morris’ injury has “been classified as a bruise now.”

“It’s not really even a sprain,” Golden said. “It’s a bone bruise.”

When asked if Morris would be “full-go” for USF, the coach said, “Oh yeah, absolutely. I feel good about it. I really do. We might be careful with him [Monday], but our goal is to get him going for our Tuesday practice, which is obviously our most demanding practice.”

Morris, who injured the ankle with 8:51 left in the first quarter, had completed three of his four passes for 82 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown to Allen Hurns, when he was injured.

“There’s some soreness, certainly some stiffness — otherwise Stephen would have been back [Saturday] night. Everything is positive. He got through treatments and everything. Like I said, we’re going to be real careful with him in the first 48 hours, but it did not swell overnight; it didn’t go backwards overnight or anything like that.

“The young man did a great job getting on top of it right away [Saturday] night and early [Sunday] morning.”

Morris sprained his left ankle last year against North Carolina, thrusting backup Ryan Williams in the spotlight. Williams was slated to start the next game at Florida State — until Morris told coaches on game day he was ready to go.

Said Golden of Morris: “This was a kid a year ago going into Florida State where we didn’t even know he was going to play until he walked on the field. So, he’s a fast healer and he’s very tough-minded. Expect him to be back very soon.”

Morris also sprained his left ankle a few days before the Sun Bowl game in El Paso in 2010. He played in that game as well.

In other injury news, Golden said center Shane McDermott injured his foot against Florida. McDermott, seen on the sideline with his left foot in a boot, was replaced by senior Jared Wheeler.

“He’ll see the doctor again [Monday],” Golden said. “He’s making a lot of progress.”

Golden raved about Wheeler for “a great job” Saturday and for his command of the offense. “I’m really happy for him.”

Sophomore safety Deon Bush competed in about 26 plays, not including some special teams action, for the first time after undergoing hernia surgery in June and will continue rehabbing.

“A good start for him,” Golden said. “… He’s going to learn a lot from that game for sure. … I expect his biggest gain to come now going into South Florida.”

Among other topics Golden covered:

Report card: grading the Miami Hurricanes’ 77-7 win over Savannah State
by Matt Porter

How picky should one be about the most lopsided win in Miami’s 87-year football history? Not very. The one grade to keep in mind in this case is Miami’s quality of opponent, which ranks a solid F.

Grab your rosters, double-check those numbers and let’s grade the position groups on a night where the third string was playing in the second quarter …


In his limited work, Stephen Morris threw a gorgeous deep ball, about 40 yards in the air, to Allen Hurns for an 80-yard touchdown. The worry going forward is his health — read all about that here. Morris was 3-of-4 for 82 yards and the touchdown pass to Hurns.

Playing most of the first half, Ryan Williams showed (again) he is very accurate. He completed his first nine passes for 143 yards and two touchdowns, and finished 11-of-13 for 156 yards. Williams, a junior, entered the game having completed 75 percent of his passes in two years at Miami. That’s now up to 81 percent. He will likely see more work against USF.

Redshirt freshman Gray Crow entered with 2:27 left in the first half and finished it out. He was 6-of-6 for 55 yards, with Miami keeping on the ground most of the time. Crow did a nice job of setting his feet and firing a touchdown pass into traffic to put Miami up 56-0.


Forget Duke Johnson for a moment and let’s focus on the backups. Who’s the No. 2 back? According to the depth chart Miami released Sunday night, it’s either Dallas Crawford or Eduardo Clements or Gus Edwards. Heading into USF week and ACC play right around the corner, one of those three will try to emerge as Duke’s second banana.

Against Savannah State, Crawford, a sophomore, and freshman Edwards combined for six touchdowns. Five came on the ground.

Edwards looked more like an ACC-quality backup tailback than the nation’s top high school fullback, which is what he was when Miami signed him. He showed nice speed on a stretch run in the second quarter (21-yard gain) and then punched in a 1-yard touchdown on the next play. He scampered through a massive hole for a 19-yard gain early in the third. He broke three tackles on his second touchdown, which came on fourth-and-goal from the 3 late in the third quarter. He plowed right up the middle and spun out of a tackle for his third touchdown. He still runs tall, but he’s tough to bring down. The final line: 113 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries. Will be interesting to see what he does from here.

Crawford showed some nice spin moves and cuts and ran tough up the middle. On his second rushing touchdown, he busted right up the gut, cut outside and broke a tackle. His long gain was 19 yards and he finished with 48 carries on five yards. Clements was the third man in, gaining 75 yards on 11 carries. He has a funny way of looking like he’s about to fall over, but always keeps his balance.

About Duke: It’s not unfair to question his durability. He’s taken a heavy lick in each of Miami’s three games and gone to the sideline. On the next play following his game-long 43-yard run late in the first quarter, a Miami offensive lineman fell on Johnson as he was taken down after a gain of four yards. He did not return to action and finished with 59 yards and a touchdown on eight carries. He also took hit up high before running in a 2-yard touchdown to make it 21-0.

Maurice Hagens was outstanding as a lead blocker early in the game, springing Johnson for several gains and helping Crawford and Edwards get into the end zone in the first quarter. Ronald Regula backed him up and earned a catch that was called back on a penalty. De’Andre Johnson and Jameson Labady carried the ball in the shortened, 12-minute fourth quarter.


FAU game? What FAU game? Freshman Stacy Coley looked world-beater confident and showed outstanding acceleration after the catch. Coley finished with 16 yards and a touchdown on three catches. He was outstanding in the return game (see below) and made his case to play a lot against USF. He also had his right knee checked out in the second quarter and was hit with an illegal motion penalty in the third quarter, which negated a first-down gainer.

Hurns toasted Savannah State cornerback Wayne Johnson on his touchdown and left in the first quarter with a team-high 100 yards on two catches.

Herb Waters limped off the field at 9:53 of the first with an apparent left knee injury. He rode the exercise bike on the sideline and returned on the next drive.

Malcolm Lewis had a nine-yard catch, his first reception of the season.

D’Mauri Jones’ unintelligent penalty – smacking a Tigers player after the whistle — knocked the Hurricanes back in the red zone in the third quarter. That made it possible for Garrett Kidd make a leaping grab for 11 yards. Miami scored anyway, of course.


It was a memorable night for Beau Sandland, who caught his first career touchdown at 9:55 of the third quarter. He caught every ball that was thrown to him and finished with six catches for 76 yards. He sometimes split out wide and showed good speed, hands, shiftiness and great balance after the catch. His best work came after a second-quarter reception — he fought off a would-be tackler trying to drag him out of bounds at the line of scrimmage, then broke another tackle on his way to a 13-yard gain. He had a similar play on a 20-yard grab two plays later.

Clive Walford continued his hot streak. After Miami’s third drive, 17 of Walford’s last 18 touches went for first downs or touchdowns. He later had an uncharacteristic drop of a touchdown pass. Asante Cleveland wasn’t a factor in the passing game and didn’t play much after the first quarter.

Freshman Standish Dobard got a little work late in the first half and caught a 15-yard pass in the second half.

See the rest..


I am expecting a commitment to Miami Football during the next couple of days. Won't spoil it for the young man. Offensive side of ball.

Most seem to think it will be Brady


Per Pete Ariz..

Luther Campbell no longer at MNW

He has tweeted that he was informed today that his services were no longer needed at Miami Northwestern.

I know there will be sarcastic posts about it, but he is not the issue there. That defense has been very good the last few years and you can tell they were very well-coached on that side of the ball.


Looks like Berrios will announce on Oct..in the 12th I think




He's only 15 years old and still several years away from playing college football, but 2017 linebacker prospect Dylan Moses (Baton Rouge, La./University Lab) already has made quite a name for himself.

On Sunday night, he ended his recruitment early and gave a pledge to the hometown LSU Tigers.

The 6-foot-1, 213-pounder chose the Tigers over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Texas and many others.

I sure do hope this team will be ready for GT, cause like TSully said, we lose that game the ACC is most likely out of reach.


I like the mindset our team is in. They overlook no one. Very business like, boring in the press, and taking a common sense approach.

- By all evidence, a lifting NCAA cloud
- Better tight end play
- Active defensive tackles
- "Disruptions" kept to an absolute minimum (nonexisting during camp)

If Georgia Tech is better, UM will do everything they can to beat them.

Keep in mind that North Carolina, Elon, and Duke are hardly indicators of how good the Jackets are as the Tarheels and the Devils have never appeared in the ACC Title Game. As good as North Carolina's NFL prospects may be, the program is 1-4 in bowl games since 2001, haven't claimed an ACC title since 1980, and haven't won over 9 games since 1997.

Georgia Tech could very well be an excellent team, but I think it's way too early to tell. Miami, however, is battle tested vs. an annual title contender and top 10 program.

- Weird playcalling on the running game (that is, until the backups came in)

I have no clue what Coley's thought process is, but it doesn't maximize efficiency. If you'll notice that when he opted for a more traditional running game and blocking schemes... our backs blew things up.

Yet we are still 3-0, and it's been a long freaking time since that happened.

LB's Monday Translating Depth Chart:

- Hurns is the most trusted target here until proven otherwise. Receivers have improved.
- Walford really profited from the new coach. The more catches Sandland gets, the more that ACC opponents will get gashed.
- Gall and Gadbois are stepping up. Gall will start next year, no questions asked.
- Ryan Williams will start next year, unless Olsen makes quantum leaps. Crow is a really dedicated worker.
- Congratulations. We officially have running back depth. Gustavo "Los Pollos Hermanos Fring" Edwards is our goal line back.
- The defense says 4-3, and that's nonsense.
- Defensive line continues to impress. How about that AQM?
- I'm totally stumped about Cain.
- We've got some nice depth at corner.
- It will take Deon Bush a lot of time to return to form, maybe not until next season.
- Pat O'Donnell: M.V.P.


Miami plays GT well and that was before the defensive depth ad improved tackling, so I like our chances, but GT seems to be better also. Their D is improved and they had added a lot more passing to their O. I did notice the UNC was throwing all over GT early in the game, so we should be able to put points on the board.

That means Miami has a head-to-head win against its top coastal competition..duh lol...I just mean if their already 3-0 or close to it in the ACC and we lose, they can still lose and be ahead of us. Not saying it will happen, just wouldnt be a good one to lose lol


Also soup..that was based off GT beating VT lol


Not saying it will happen, just wouldnt be a good one to lose lol

Posted by: UMike | September 23, 2013 at 09:49 AM

I get what U are saying just find it interesting the WAY that U choose to say it, that's all. I hate losing ANY game but yes, most will prolly agree that the GT game would be the worst one to lose, or at least it appears so at this time. So I would just suggest that we win that one, how about U? LOL


My point is this, IF GT beats VT, which they should, they will be 3-0 in the ACC. They should win all of their remaining ACC games with the exception of Clemson making them 6-1 in ACC play. If they were to beat Miami, they would be 7-1. If Miami wins all their ACC games which they should, but fall to GT, we will be 7-1 but with a loss to GT and therefor out of the ACC title game.

All Im saying is there is A LOT riding on the GT game


I agree..win them all and it wont matter lol


I expect Miami to generally control the GT offense overall. I am fairly certain they will gash us for a few 10+ runs and a few 20+ passes after watching their offense vs UNC. They will score but we will shut them down in the Red zone as Miami's RZD is among the best in the Country this year.

I have GT scoring 13-20 points so Miami will have to score AT LEAST 21-24 to secure the W. If Morris and Duke are good to go I have it UM 34, GT 20 right now in my early prediction. If they are shaky then I might go UM 27, GT 13.


All Im saying is there is A LOT riding on the GT game

Oh, THAT'S what U are saying, now I get it!
