Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Agreed, but baseball has been bad too ^^^

UMike

Basketball is and has always been my favorite sport to play. A basketball court is a peaceful place for me, even in the mist of trash talk and hard fouls. But the NBA hasnt been the same since the late 90's when dudes averaging 12 points started getting max deals and the NBA tried to make superstars out of average players.

Hell yeah. I still to this day, don't understand Riley's infatuation with "Hot Rod" Williams...and Juwan Howard.

UMike

CR.. or when the Heat signed Brian Grant to a max deal after ONE good playoff.. dude wasnt even a starter for Portland. Riley feel pray to the NBA at that time, tried giving Howard a max deal also. He learned lol

If you freeze a video highlight, Gray has a frame that looks similar to Taylor. And if you watch him in slo-mo, he certainly looks like he's making lots of great moves. But I haven't seen any film that would suggest he's got anywhere near Sean Taylor's speed. He looks like he's running maybe a 4.5 -- adequate, but nothing freakish.

j.w.

Really think that way about the NBA, guys? I think that league is second only to the NFL in terms of smart marketing, brand identity, and is better now than ever.

UMike

j.w... I think the marketing and brand is doing fine... I wont argue that, the NBA is popular... but as far as the game itself goes.. its dropped off IMO. Basketball is a distance third to NFL and NCAACF imo.

I did not know that if a kids signs the Grant-In-Aid with us, and then flips its a violation on Miami!!! I would assume that Golden strongly believes Dexter will not flip. Then again, we didnt get in trouble when Cook didnt sign with us.. not sure how this rule works.

-----------------------------------------------------

It's only a violation if they don't sign because the school pulled it. They can commit where they want and doesn't hurt us.

Dude on a Pale Horse

djm,

You're right, but he's only a freshman, he's a long strider right now and isn't as explosive as Taylor. But, we'll see, the tools are there and he can get more explosive after working w/ Swasey.

So, its totally safe for us to do this with the guys we are taking no matter what. Fringe guys who are committed but we are waiting on studs won't get this treatment.

WWIN

Put Gray at FS, I said that about 2 weeks ago!!

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^^^
Might as well move him this year instead of next year. Cuz what we gon do with all the RB's coming in next year??

UMike

WWIN.. we are short at RB this year. And we have safety depth this year.

Even right now, he strikes me as a more explosive big back than Gus the Bus. But just as I don't see him becoming as fast as ST, I don't see him becoming like McGahee, who wasn't just "fast for such a big back," but was just plain fast.

CaneRock

As long as Gray runs a 4.5, 4 6 points...I'M GOOD!

UMike

I know he was fast enough to pull away from all the boys on Central lol.. game fast is what matters anyway. Taylor ran a 4.5 before the draft, but at his size that is fast and Im sure he was capable of a 4.4.

UMike

Also.. I never meant to say he was as fast as Taylor.. I meant he is just a great athlete that he COULD literally be the best on the team at a couple different positions.

I dunno, I haven't seen any film where he's leaving anybody in the dust.

That's not to say the guy's not fast enough to make plenty of big plays, in combination with his fluidity and vision, both of which seem very, very good.

UMike

Looks pretty fast here.. and these are JUNIOR highlights lol

UMike

Watch the first play of this video...

CaneRock

The only player Gray reminds me of, is Anquan Boldin. I think He eventually ends up at WR.

As long as we don't pull his scholarship, yes. Doesn't matter where he picks. Only helps us for them to sign agreement. Gives us unlimited contact.

WWIN

Jake Heaps hits Stacy Coley on a pretty end-zone fade. Thrown right over Antonio Crawford. They high-five afterward.

VA Cane

TG = highlight reels. Great stuff.

What makes it better is his classroom effort; most impressive in class on field. I am taking him as my guy!!!!!!

VA Cane

Hope SC is ok....him and Gray on field at same time is dangerous!!!!!

fmcane

VA I agree Gray's work in the class room is very impressive. Hey paid the cost of time and effort to be a cane. He did the extra work despite ppl saying he couldn't make it. I will take that guy as a team mate any time!

LQ

Lets hold off on the Sean Taylor stuff people look all world on greentree then look horrible in games.. Jordan Futch, Arthur Brown(who just got his spot snatched by Mosley from Bama) . I wouldnt say that T.Gray is slow but Taylor was stride for STRIDE with Randy Moss !! Vikings Randy Moss his rookie year and broke that play up .

Not sure if this link has been posted yet, but its Canes Camp Day 3. Warning, its a No'D interview. I skipped ahead to plays of the day w/o volume and on the first play I was like, oh man Duke looks good, only I turn the volume on to discover, that's not Duke, that's Joe Yearby, lol. The kid looks for real.

LQ

I would say the same for predictions on the year. We should wait until camp is over . And I am praying that we come out injury free and with the best to start at QB this year . #Kaaya

Dude on a Pale Horse

LQ,

You had a point on the comparisons thing, but you lost me BIG TIME on the record predictions.

-The Dude, 12%, wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round!

Dude on a Pale Horse

They've got a post practice interview w/ Erik Flowers up on CanesAllAccess now. No mention whatsoever of Stacy Coley.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Back to the Gray/Taylor thing for just a sec, I just want to say that no one, not UMike or myself is saying that this kid is as good as Sean, who is in my opinion the most gifted athlete to play his position EVER, we are just saying that when you watch Gray play, he has some Sean Taylor in his game. That's no disrespect to Sean, but a complement to Gray and his game.

This happened after estaban said he was injured!!

86Cane

Esteban was NOT esteban. It was a troll.

I deleted most of the comment re Coley.

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^^^
I figured that, that's why I posted that tweet about Coley catching a TD right after his comment!

KYcane

Sweet! We gotta Ohio Cane hood ornament on the bus.

Posted by: The Dude | August 06, 2014 at 10:01 PM

That works for me but I kinda liked the idea of seeing him tied to the roof in the luggage rack?

Posted by: 86Cane | August 06, 2014 at 10:11 PM

You guys make up your mind

Ohio_Cane

@CanesFootball: Brad Kaaya & Antonio Crawford were just some of the standouts on Day Four of #CanesCamp http://t.co/uGvFIIg3aE

I think ima let my favorite client on the bus this year!!

Gray is an outstanding athlete,, but he is built differently from Taylor, and he is a different kind of player. Taylor was a little taller and longer. Gray looks a little more like a RB or receiver. Gray has put on some weight since high school, but Gray has good football instincts and makes lots of explosive plays. Gray also plays with a chip on his shoulder and feels he has something to prove. Gray will play this year and he will have an impact as a freshman.

CaneRock

that's Joe Yearby, lol. The kid looks for real.

YUP! These cats better tie them cleats on TIGHT!...or get shook out of em'.
