I detect a little jealousy, lol. Are you an original? You should post more often my man. Anyways I've been blogging with these many of these cats since Omar's SS blog. CS is a million times better though.

Old skool...U will be missed!

KYCane and Terrance...I think when we are in the Keys and since it is just the three of us going we may just rent a boat for 1/2 a day at $150 instead of doing the fishing charter at $350-$500. We can cruise the back country, go to lunch on the boat at Islamorada Fish Company and then head out to the sandbar of of Holiday Isle and just chill for awhile.

Wednesday Itenerary:

Depart Winter Haven 12 noon.

Perryman plays much faster than his combine 40 time, but here's the reason though why I think he'll be a good pro, he hits incredibly hard and he doesn't need any space to do it in. Every team needs a guy that creates turnovers and I think Perryman is that guy.

Posted by: The Dude | February 24, 2015 at 09:34 PM

True...Denzel does have an innate ability to deliver hard hits in awkward positions...that hit against WF comes to mind. But I was just surprised that He was that slow. If He ran a 4.8 at the combine, WTH was He running when He got to UM?

Meet TS here in O-town, head south, have fun.

There will be NO fun on this trip.

Just tight schedules to adhere to, goals to be reached, deadlines to meet and production quotas to satisfy.

Healthy Miami Hurricanes receiver Rashawn Scott takes on leadership role

If you play word association with a UM football fan and say Rashawn Scott, you will likely get two responses — suspensions and shoulder injuries.

After a breakout sophomore season in 2012 (35 receptions for 512 yards and three touchdowns), Scott missed most of his 2013 with a shoulder injury and then all of 2014 with his third injury in the same region — this time his clavicle. He has also faced multiple suspensions for violation of team rules.

Scott’s clavicle injury, sustained in a fall camp scrimmage, was a dangerous one. Offensive coordinator James Coley has previously said his bone hit an artery.

WEDNESDAY BUZZ COLUMN

### UM still hopes to convince Antonio Crawford to change his mind and stay at UM instead of transferring, but considering his angry tweets and considering the fact he didn't show up to practice again today, he already seems to have one foot out the door.

Crawford, who has good speed, might be UM's best slot corner. Corn Elder and Tracy Howard can also play that position.

### Al Golden said defensive end Tyriq McCord was moved to linebacker because “he rushes the passer well and moves well.” The move was possible because of UM’s depth at defensive end…. James Coley said he could envision using Malik Rosier as a short-yardage quarterback at times next season.

### Biggest surprises for Coley so far? Tight ends David Njoku and Chris Herndon (both have been impressive), running back Gus Edwards, receiver Rashawn Scott and offensive tackle Sunny Odogwu.

### UM hasn’t decided who will replace Ereck Flowers at left tackle; Odogwu has been getting a lot of the reps with others injured.

"I have to see KC [McDermott] work there, because he has not worked there - him and Taylor Gadbois worked all right tackle last year," Coley said. "And I haven't seen Trevor [Darling] there either. I'm intrigued to see Trevor there."

McDermott and Gadbois continue to recover from knee surgery last season.


Coley said early enrollee Jahair Jones and summer arrival Bar Milo could play left tackle. Both can also play guard.

"Jahair for what we've thrown at him has done a great job," Coley said. "And we have more in right now than we had two weeks into training camp last year."

### Please see the last post for an explanation of why Al Golden hired WQAM's Josh Darrow as his assistant director of football operations.

ESPN CFB:

ACC coaching job with the most upside: Miami

It’s been 11 years since Miami played in a major bowl game and 13 years since the Hurricanes secured a fifth national championship, which all came in a 19-year span.

Six of the last nine years have ended with six losses or more, however, which has Miami slipping into the category of “programs with upside.” Years of underwhelming results will do that to schools with even the richest traditions.

In 2015, Miami has potential, a stiff backhanded compliment for a program that isn't far removed from being the program every other FBS team was chasing. The Hurricanes had the wins, the championships, the first-round talent and the South Beach swagger. There has been little of that since the Canes’ last BCS bowl in 2003, but Miami has the potential to regain its profile soon.

Few programs can step outside the front door and fall into a crystal blue pool of high-end FBS prospects as the Hurricanes can. The argument rages each year as to which area is best for high school talent, but South Florida is always in the conversation. As a whole, Florida had 79 prospects rated as four stars or better in the 2015 class, more than any other state. Its 55 ESPN 300 prospects were also tops nationally, and much of that talent is concentrated in the lower half of the peninsula.

When the Hurricanes have been able to reach the pinnacle of the sport, they have done it by putting a border around their recruiting backyard to create the “State of Miami” and polishing off their roster with a few more prospects throughout the state and nationally.

The Hurricanes can also recruit their history. Their run during the 1980s, '90s and early 2000s was among the most impressive the sport has ever seen. National championships are a fickle number in college football, but by at least one measure, only Alabama and USC can boast better 20-year runs than the Hurricanes’ run from 1983-2001. The Crimson Tide won five national titles over an 18-year span beginning in 1961, and USC won five out of 16 championships from 1962-1978 ; it took Miami 19 seasons to win its five titles.

Miami has a rich history of producing elite NFL players with big personalities, too, and that resonates with recruits, although it dwindles each year as prospective prospects become further removed from the careers or primes of the likes of Michael Irvin, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Warren Sapp -- among several others.

However, the Miami job in 2015 is littered with impediments, exacerbated by the increasing expenditures among college football’s elite programs. As schools across the SEC and rival Florida State enhance their facilities and aesthetics, Miami is left behind. The school does not have the funds or the willing donors to keep pace with Alabama or Texas A&M or Tennessee or whichever school is announcing new upgrades in the coming years.

The right coach has been able to overcome drawbacks in the past, whether the obstacle has been an NCAA issue or a lack of facilities. It remains to be seen if Al Golden, entering his fifth season, is fit to bring the Hurricanes back to prominence, although the opportunity is there as Miami has begun moving past the Nevin Shapiro fallout.

The upside is there at Miami, but for a fan base with expectations to win at the highest level, that's one U word that The U wants no association with at all.

I like Kehoe, but I think our O-Line guys are TOO big. Seems to me when UM goes against elite D-Lines, we're a step too slow.

Al Blades Jr. on his commitment to UM: "I have the chance to finish what he started"

Let’s preface this by pointing out the obvious—National Signing Day 2018 is a long way away.

And yes, Al Blades Jr. knows it too.

The good news is that we are never more than 3 or 4 years away from relevance. Maybe even dominance. Unfortunately that clock is not yet ticking.

2016 DE BAILEY HAS MIAMI AMONG HIS FAVORITES

For the past few seasons, the Miami Hurricanes have been trying to revamp their defensive line and there is no better way to do that than recruiting some of the top talents from across the state.

One of the players Miami is recruiting heavily in the 2016 recruiting cycle is Jacksonville Raines (Fla.) defensive end JaQuan Bailey.

Bailey has visited Coral Gables a few times now and he has a lot that sticks out for him.

"I mean I just like everything. I like the community, I love the brotherhood, I love the coaching staff, and when I went down there last summer, it just felt comfortable. It kind of felt like home," Bailey said.

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound rising senior holds offers from Miami, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Purdue, and Marshall among others but he says he expects the in-state Florida Gators to offer next month when he goes to Gainesville for an unofficial visit.

"The coach has basically told me that they are going to offer me when I come up on the 14th they just wanted to get me on campus," said Bailey. "I remember as a kid always cheering for the 'Gators when they were playing Georgia, or Auburn, or LSU."

Bailey is excited for the offer because he has numerous connections to the school. Some of those connections include that he lives only lives a little over an hour away from the campus, his sister attended the University of Florida, and one of his current teammates at Jacksonville Raines, wide-receiver Rick Wells is committed to the Gators.

The Hurricanes might already have the edge early on in this stud's recruitment as Bailey's high school teammate and good friend Michael Pickney is a linebacker who is committed to the University of Miami. Will Pickney's commitment play a role in Bailey's?

"I mean yeah. I do have a teammate committed to Florida also but Mike and I play defense together and me and him talk so much so that would be nice," said Bailey.

Bailey also added that he will be committing to the school of his choice soon. What will it take for a school to land his services?

"I just want that the coaches keep it real with me you know. I'm paying attention to who their recruiting and who they are bringing in. Plus how they play Freshmen and then how my heart feels," said Bailey.

Former Florida Gator defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. is who Bailey would compare himself to. He finished the 2014 season with 68 tackles and 11 sacks.

Here are his highlights: http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2649142/...s/162881377/v2
