Terrance Sullivan

FromLA2MIA.That is all.

86Cane

I just hope that RoachCane77 notices the title?

raizecane

lets hope he sticks with Miami.....

WWIN

Listening to Golden's interview the other night, he sounded happier than he's ever been!! Everything I heard about camp was positive, didn't have to motivate players to compete and give 100%! Sounds like the team is ready this year!

CaneRock

SMDH...obviously, marijuana use hasn't hurt the NBA as a global brand, why does Goodell think it'll hurt the NFL's...

#Protect The Shield...yeah right.

Ohio_Cane

WWIN, don't let Milo's comments hurt U too much. He's also said in the past that he wouldn't commit without talking it over with his parents. He wouldn't have committed if they weren't on board.

Now, if/when UCLA or USC offers, we'll have to hold them off.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I'm so jacked about Monday night when we smack Louisville. Al Golden has shown he has the critical trait to win at Miami... he develops players. Now we just need to hope sticking with No'D pays off, I'm counting on it.

### Even though Al Golden and defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio are friends, associates say Golden bristles when anybody uses that word in discussing D’Onofrio’s work. That happened today on Orlando Alzugaray’s show on WQAM.

Asked about constantly having to defend his friend, Golden said: “I don’t classify it as my friend. At Virginia, we went from 108 to 17 in defense.”

By the way, Golden told Alzugaray that Brad Kaaya has “moved from a manager to an attacker.”

### One huge key is whether the defensive tackle group of Olsen Pierre, Calvin Heurtelou, Courtel Jenkins, Earl Moore, Anthony Moten, injured Corey King and Michael Wyche (when he gets in better shape) is better than last year’s group of Pierre, Curtis Porter, Justin Renfrow, Moore and King. One UM official said he believes it is, but we’ll know a lot more Monday.

It’s telling that Porter wasn’t invited to an NFL camp, and Renfrow was cut by Arizona this week. Other Canes cut this week: offensive lineman Tyler Horn (Tennessee) and defensive end Adewale Ojomo (Dallas).

### Couple other UM items: Good to see Jacksonville Jaguars and undrafted UM receiver Allen Hurns leading the NFL in receiving yardage in preseason (230, on 13 catches). Nobody is even close to that…. CBS announced it will air the North Carolina-at-UM basketball game on Feb. 28… A UM official doesn’t expect former basketball player Rafael Akpejiori to be able to help much this season, even with Beau Sandland leaving. He’s behind at least four tight ends on the depth chart....

Enjoyed seeing the Najeh Davenport documentary on the UM football program that debuted at the O Cinema in Wynwood tonight. The film --- a fun trip down memory lane --- chronicles the 1999, 2000 and 2001 teams and is cholk full of interviews with the key figures from those teams and game footage and videos filmed by players during that impressive run. The film, available on theureloaded.com, is worth the $20 DVD cost if you're a hard-core Canes fan.

Among the notable sound bites from the film: Ed Reed and Bryant McKinnie recalling how they went to then-athletic director Paul Dee to strongly encourage him to promote Larry Coker after Butch Davis left for Cleveland.... Brett Romberg and other players recounting the pre-Sugar Bowl street brawl between UM and UF players. Vince Wilfork emerged from a New Orleans voodoo store to join in.... Coker trying to persuade players to return in 2002, only to learn some of them had just bought expensive cars.

A bunch of former Canes showed up at the premiere tonight, including Phillip Buchanon, Mike Rumph, Jerome McDougle, Gerard Daphnis and former running backs coach Don Soldinger.

When I was looking at colleges, "far from home" was a feature, not a bug. Yes, Mom, Dad, I am TOTALLY taking into consideration that you'd like me closer to home. Totally.

30CINCO

30CINCO,

I love that the article trash talks Miami to the very end and then uses a quote from a High School coach in the last paragraph to explain Miami's side.

Yup, that publication has always had it in for us.

Nice to see others starting to hate on us tho. Those "other" coaches hating means we must be doing something right.

Golden told them to get their licks in while they could during the NCAA investigation. Now that the gloves are off, it's payback time!

Ohio_Cane

Canes were off yesterday. Hoping we hear some good things from practice today! Like OL starters. KC at RT is my guess on that competition.

Hoping Jamaal Carter cements himself at S, too.

UMike

I think the safeties will be Bush and Crawford with Carter seeing a lot of time as well.

UMike

I dont think you can go wrong with any combination of starting safeties at this point

Ohio_Cane

Carter has the highest ceiling, IMO, so I'm hoping he realizes and achieves it now.

SinisterCane

Has the depth chart been posted yet?

Ohio_Cane

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/73682/acc-week-1-predictions

3/4 picked Loserville.

Ohio_Cane

Sinister, not yet. I'm assuming this afternoon or tomorrow morning? Maybe even Saturday since it's a Monday game.

As a parent, how do you tell your child "not to fully commit" to something??

Why announce your commitment when you're not "FULLY" committed, why not just wait till NSD?? Kids and parents this day in age...

trianglecane

Ab and Imah Milo should let Bar go. But, easier said than done...

Go Canes

@ChristyChirinos: #Canes DE Al-Quadin Muhammad back at practice. Missed Tuesday while dealing with a personal issue according to coach Al Golden.

It's just the same as if your teenager is dating somebody you consider trash. If you tell them you disapprove, you worry that you're just driving your kid deeper into that trashy embrace. So instead, you just say, "you're young. Just keep your options open." You hope that the kid grows out of it.

trianglecane

LOL!! @ "trashy embrace"

86Cane

Off to work. Oh yeah, BTW, I got a job!

I am now officially a Realtor and my license has been activated. Wish me luck!

Ohio_Cane

Christy Chirinos ‏@ChristyChirinos 42s

Only counted six in black: D. Crawford, Chickillo, Gunter, Armbrister, Perryman and Pierre.

Ohio_Cane

Go 86! Go Canes!

WWIN

Good point!!

But why would he commit when he said "I'm not fully committed", why not just wait?

30CINCO

Crawford is really gonna take that starting spot isn't he? Impressive if he is able to to that.

Unless of course he was promised the job when he moved?

WWIN

Congrats 86, good luck and I wish you the best!! 👍

Now you can sell me a house down there in a few years! Lol

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^
30C, I'm sure he was! Lol

Terrance Sullivan

Congrats Soup! Proud of U bruh!

Lurker

Commercial or residential?

CaneRock

"It’s telling that Porter wasn’t invited to an NFL camp, and Renfrow was cut by Arizona this week."

#Far as I know, Porter's still hanging on with the Raiders, as an UDFA.

Sarasota 'cane

Congrats Soup! What brokerage did you go with?

CaneRock

Losing Jenkins was big...not huge, but big. Unless we can move Mayes to FS, Bush is the only true FS that we have.

Ohio_Cane

Unless of course he was promised the job when he moved?

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

LOLOL!

UMike

We all know Crawford was promised the job...just like we all know Golden was finally tired of UMike saying he job was Heaps already.

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^^^^
What's so hard to believe about promised playing time? Sometimes you gotta do whatever you gotta do!

SinisterCane

GO CANEZ

UMike

Didn't an assistant coach just promise a recruit that if he didnt end up at Miami he would quit? haha

WWIN

^^^^^^^^^
UMike, yes he did! Do you think he'll stick to his word? 30C and Go Canes would say "you damn right he will" LOL

UMike

We have 21 commits at the moment... not counting Walton (who I think ends up in 2016).. I wonder how many more we take... doesnt Sandland open up another spot?

NativeCane

Gradulate the Soup!
I know you will do well, if you can convince people they cant live without an orchid you can sell a house/property.

Dem Canes!!!

Old Skool

Congrats Soup.
I hope you have a written job contract. There's
been a lot of promises of jobs around here lately that haven't panned out.
