Like choice of Beard. Dread JetroPa Bodine going to Oakland as we are bad enough.
Our DL plays so far off the ball and is so passive small and weak that him leaving will make no difference at all as our DL was a non factor. No DL was developed. We are better off without a coach there than JethroPa. But heck....DnoPa can coach them!

Miami Hurricanes get an early start on spring football

Most of the Hurricanes’ spring football practices this year will come before the first day of spring.

UM’s spring — or more accurately, winter — practices will open Feb. 21. Last year, they began two weeks later. Twelve practices and two scrimmages will be held at 9 a.m. on specified dates at Greentree Practice Fields.

Because Sun Life Stadium is undergoing a renovation, the location of UM’s March 28 spring game is still to be determined. One option UM is considering is 20,450-seat Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.

This would end the chances of a UM stadium at the Tropical Park, not that this was ever going to be a truly realistic option.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | February 10, 2015 at 09:09 AM

This was almost an option, but FIU didn't wanna share a stadium with UM.

I would love to check out the Spring Practice at 9am on February 26. Soup, KYCANE what say U? I mean we could check it out before we leave for the Keys.

I want a new blog
One that does what it should
One that won't make me feel too bad
One that won't make me feel too good

I want a new blog
Fresh stuff every other day
One that won't make click "Next" ten times
One that won't make scroll all day

One that won't make me nervous
Wondering what to do
One that makes me feel like routing FSU
There's only one real "U"
We're #1 at the U

Dude on a Pale Horse

New blog is up!

@Manny_Navarro: New #Canes receivers coach Kevin Beard could be "the glue" that connects #UM with elite local recruits again http://t.co/qxlEw33xsL

Wonder who they will make National Recruiting Coord to replace Carroll. Should it be a current member or a new guy?

CaneRock

"If KB was hired prior to last year’s signing class they probably would have had a good shot with Ermon Lane, Chris Lammons [South Carolina] and Travis Rudolph [now at Florida State] because Beard had great relationships with those kids."

^^^^^^^^^^^^Why does EVERYBODY know this but Golden?!

ODAC!

What's Manny talking about?

I thought Al was an elite recruiter, and didn't get more SoFlo kids this year only because they needed OLinemen.

^^^^ those kids mentioned were 2014 recruits, not 2015

So the next genius move after dropping DT's into coverage would be to make our OL run go routes?

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Return kicks. Gonna have McDermott return kicks.

VfB_Cane

^^^ LOL I wouldn't want to tackle him once he gets going ...

VfB_Cane

For the past year, Beard said he served as "the bridge between the players and coaches" at UM.

Seeing how last season ended, we needed him to be at least 12 feet tall to brigde that gap.

VA Cane

My experience tells me there is a real lack of leadership; fingerprints of it are all over the program since 2003. This is a lost ship drifting at sea. Until someone mighty steps to the front to captain the ship it will continue to do so. Hope for a better 2015 is all I can tell you; glad my program is at the top and will always be there. See, we love winning; losing is a horrible fate that is easy to slip into and easier to make excuses for the losing.

Re-read the recruiting article with those coaches, and then think about what VA Cane has said over the years. The guys who coach kids know the mindset, not the people who think that processes and books recruit kids and win titles.

Bob must have seen the future of situations, he knew the conman was on the way....applies to UM football....and other leaders of a more serious nature......IJS

Things That Make You Go Hmmm ...

The College Football Playoff announced on Monday that Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt would join the selection committee, replacing fellow Big 12 representative and former West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck (...) A Texas native, he becomes the youngest member of the committee at age 41.

@CanesInSight: 2016 in-state linebacker lands "dream offer" from UM: In recent years, Miami Hurricanes fans… http://t.co/VRtlgn5zDn

1mg of Epi

"Simmons has a couple offers from the likes of Maryland, Cincinnati, Bowling Green, and others, but on Tuesday he was offered by the 'Canes and finally received his "dream offer.""

Compared to those schools, thank god Miami is still a dream offer.

Question.... Is it a concern that we are offering players whose only other offers are these schools?

Terrance Sullivan

Scratch that apparently the practices are closed oh well. 2 weeks can't get here fast enough. Canespace 4 Life!

T-Sulli,

Im pumped for baseball to be starting this Friday. I wish spring ball would just pass by with out me knowing about it. It has just become a bitterly painful part of the year for me. It is either filled with complete disappointment of injured players or horrible QB #s in the spring game, or it has filled me with false hope for the season. I think this spring will be a false hope spring.

Terrance Sullivan

Well said Cane Fan Since 82 my Brotha tell your Dad we at Canespace say Hello. Hope our Baseball team can bring home title and the Miami Maniac can have 5 rings like his Brotha Sebastian
Go Canes!

Cane Since 1982

Will do Sulli.

Ill see you at some game next year. Not sure which ones I can make yet, but I tend to find a way to get to a few. Im hoping Miami will play at Syracuse some time while Im stationed in NY. Ill probably make a drive or two to Boston for the BC games.

It's early on in the process. He'll get more offers. Plus he has more offers than Kayaa did at this stage. Hope he picks and sticks.

Terrance Sullivan

Cane Fan Since 82 I am going to the Pitt game in Pittsburgh Thanksgiving weekend maybe if U can make that trip we can catch that game Brotha.
