NEW BLOG IS UP!

Lurker

Yep TBC, why would they give us a break, unless they had a gun to their had.

As far as Title IX, whatever good intentions were behind it in terms of gender fairness, some would argue that the unintended consequences overshadow whatever benefits they overshadow may have brought about. It's a debatable topic.

Too bad about the men's rowing, that can't be a very expensive sport like some of the others. But congrats, VfB, for having played a sport for the U. In terms of strength, lung capacity, fitness, muscle endurance and overall endurance I can't think of a more complete sport than competitive rowing.

Agreed Lurker, I highly doubt the gators will help us out, let along a kid that was kicked off their team.

Lurker

For Willis to play THIS year, as I understand it, the gators would have to sign a waiver allowing it. So unless there is some way to make them do this, light and NCAA insisting on it, or the threat of a lawsuit, I don't see any way that Willis plays this year.

Here are the requirements to qualify for the "run-off waiver" (from http://www.stateoftheu.com/2015/4/19/8454223/miami-hurricanes-football-waiver-application-eligibility-gerald-willis-dt):

1. Documentation demonstrating that the student-athlete would not have had the opportunity to return to the previous institution’s team for reasons outside the control of the student-athlete.

2. A written statement from the applicant institution that the student-athlete is in good academic standing and meets all progress-toward-degree requirements at applicant institution.

3. A written statement from the student-athlete’s previous institution indicating that the previous institution supports the request.

How likely are the turds to do #3 without some form of serious coercion? Not very, in my opinion. I wouldn't be counting on him for this year.

Because their funding is limited, whatever discretionary funds are available, a great portion of them have to be focused on maintaining Federal Title IX requirements. Note that in comparison to other state funded schools, Miami also has no gymnastics, softball, men's soccer, men's swimming, men's rowing, men's volleyball, men's golf, etc.

Exactly - Title IX is the main reason a lot of men's sports only exist as club sports.
UM used to have men's rowing (I know because I was on the team), but had to drop it.

BTW: R.I.P. Joe "Okie" O'Connor, the man who started Hurricane Crew and passed away two years ago on April 20, 2013 at the age of 56.

UMike

Go Canes...so Im assuming that since he was dismissed and didnt request a transfer he might be exempt from the rule making him sit out?

Go Canes

This would be gigantic:

###As Canesport first reported, Gerald Willis, the five-star defensive lineman who transferred to UM, is appealing to the NCAA to make him eligible to play this season, on the grounds that the Gators dismissed him from their team after multiple altercations with teammates.

Terrance Sullivan

Congratulations to CaneRock and his son and UMike and his son.

CaneRock

Also, I think DP's the last LB to have a P6 in a game, 2012 against BC...unless you consider McCord a LB.

Canezitis

My draft predictions:
1st- Flowers, Dorsett
2nd- DP, walford
3rd- the Duke
4th or 5th- Chick, Gunter
6th-undrafted free agents- the rest of 'em.

That's a pretty damn good haul if you ask me. My other prediction:
I predict Chick will be future pro bowler. I think he'll beast out in the nfl if in a 4-3 system.

CaneRock

The coverage scheme just sucked, it made ALL the LBs look bad in coverage.

Look, 240LB LBs is OK if you're trying to stop bubble screens, but what happens when that WR goes deep...ala the kid from USC...or the kid from NU.

Also, why doesn't UM have a wrestling team? I was at the FHSAA C'ships this year, and I was surprised at how dominant SoFlo was in individual & team C'ships.

Note that in comparison to other state funded schools, Miami also has no gymnastics, softball, men's soccer, men's swimming, men's rowing, men's volleyball, men's golf, etc.

Of the big three sports, baseball has a significant number of baseball players with only partial scholarships, to a school that's $60k a year. Let that sink in when you're recruiting against Florida or FSU, with tuition costs around 1/10th of Miami.

Add to that thin other sports than the big 3, there are only a very small handful of scholarships, with most of those being tiny fractional schollies.

UMike

Lurker..I get what you're saying...I was not trying to offer a rebuttal to you on your position...I never said I thought you were wrong or right...just saying opinions are just that, opinions. Neither of you were trying to be right, just offering your opinions, therefore facts are not NEEDED...they could help someone case but not needed lol

Opinions dont have to be validated imo. If I said "DP52 cant cover because he was only on the field for 10 passing downs" then I need to offer some facts lol...

Again, not at all trying to offer you a rebuttal, I completely understand what your point is.

IMO his lack of coverage skills is due to his size and lack of speed.

Lurker

Lurker...just out of curiosity, what facts do you have that the coaches aren't responsible for DP52's lack of coverage skills? He shared an opinion, opinions do not have to be backed up by facts...thats why there opinions lol

Posted by: UMike | April 29, 2015 at 06:29 AM

At some point Mike, I will take the time to offer a point by point rebuttal of your counter argument.

I realize this isn't a debating society, but your first counter is invalid, from a logical debating perspective.

It is an example of the logical fallacy known as negative proof. It proposes that something is true because I have no evidence to the contrary. The burden of proof remains on the original proposition. Otherwise, I can say that there are three-eyed invisible green monkeys that caused DP's alleged poor pass coverage, and that this is a valid opinion, because you can't prove they don't exist.

All I'm doing is highlighting the predominant default position, yes knee jerk, that EVERYTHING wrong is the coaches fault, when in this case a very logical argument can be made that there could be other reasons for his alleged lack of this skill, one of the primary reasons being, and you see this in the NFL, That there is a natural variance in any skill due to actual physical skills.

I'm actually trying to use logic and reason to counter the prevailing mob mentality that's prevalent all over the Internet, without denying the obvious problems, and lack of performance, that exists.

Props Umike, congrats, did anyone see you wipe away the tears, is he going military.

UMike

Got to brag on my son for a second... last year my son was a HS freshman and at the end of the year JROTC Awards Banquet he sat for a couple hours watching dozens and dozens of cadets get their names called for awards and positions in the new chain of command. This is common, freshman arent going to win many awards, if any. But instead of being discourages, he told me that night that next year would be different. All summer and all school year he put in work. He stayed after school when it wasnt required, he made the Raider and Drill teams. After long days at school and practice he would come home and then go run for miles. He went above and beyond...and last night he succeeded in his goal to make this year different.

As a sophomore he finished 4th out of over 200 cadets in the "Cadet Challenge" which is a strenuous physical fitness challenge. He finished 1st among sophomores. He was awarded the American Legion Award for Academic and Military Excellence. But at the end of the night when the new chain of command for the following year was announced is when he really met his goal. He was given a staff position as an S5 in charge of all public relations for the entire battalion. I even got to walk down to the gym floor and place his new pins on his uniform.

Was a very awesome night...was happy he got to see his hard work pay off.

KYcane

Can you imagine how boring this blog would be if we were all of the same opinion lol

Posted by: UMike | April 29, 2015 at 06:29 AM

Well it certainly wouldn't be the premier blog it is now

UMike

This article has him at 242 to start his senior year...

"He’s so big now,” UM coach Al Golden said. “It used to be we’d put him at Will [weak-side linebacker] when he was 208, 210 pounds to protect him, because that’s where the three-technique [tackle] is. Now he can do it all because he’s 242. He’s actually a guy who we’re saying, ‘Enough’s enough, stay at 242.’ ”

http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sports/college-football/beefed-up-lb-denzel-perryman-moving-over-to-middle/nd4bB/

His combine results list him at 236lbs.

http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/denzel-perryman?id=2552310

I have no idea in 6 lbs makes a difference lol

UMike

Lurker...just out of curiosity, what facts do you have that the coaches aren't responsible for DP52's lack of coverage skills? He shared an opinion, opinions do not have to be backed up by facts...thats why there opinions lol

I'm not smart enough to know if the scheme itself helped or hurt his ability to cover, but I think it can be argued he was to big and stiff. I believe he lost weight this past year to be faster and I thought I read where some scouts said he played to heavy. I wonder what his combine weight was versus is senior year.

I do think this staff has earned an occasional knee jerk reaction wither its true or not. But his opinion is NOT what makes a blog unreadable...its just an opinion. Can you imagine how boring this blog would be if we were all of the same opinion lol

VA Cane

I agree as well...no way is the destruction right.....the anger with the system is certainly justified. These deaths are wrong senseless...I find it intolerable.
Dr. King was a wise man he knew what was wrong. Pres is spot on too he knows the destruction rioting bs is wrong...and it has to change properly.

Sharpton and Jackson are publicity seekers wave riders frauds crooks liars they hate whites and encourage rioting death destruction. They want you to believe they have been there done that. They are not MLK or Pres do not have their insight. Again punch their ignorant faces.....follow MLK and Pres fuck fake Revs Al and Jesse.

Posted by: The Dude | April 28, 2015 at 04:22 PM

For one, you have no specific evidence, or even a hint of facts, to back up your claim that whatever deficiencies DP might have in pass coverage, is due to the the coaches. My point is that if those deficits exist, they could easily be due to other factors, such as physical abilities, or lack of player adaptability, or other factors.

I believe it's almost a knee jerk reaction to automatically put the coaches on blast without any actual facts to back that up.

Don't get me wrong, there's plenty to criticize, foremost being the lack of on field results. There is no denying that. 6-7 is unacceptable no matter how you slice it.

But to automatically put almost every single deficiency of players, on the coaches, is the same old same old and honestly what turns some blogs into almost being unreadable.

I mean, I don't see anybody going crazy praising the coaches for having as many as 7 or more draftable players, some in the higher rounds. Yes, of course, having that talent and being 6-7 is unacceptable, but what's good for the goose is good for the gander. I don't praise the coaches for doing this because that's part of the job they should be doing, developing and preparing players, in which they are at least doing a passable job, and winning games (in which they're badly underperforming).

So, again, I object to the knee jerk blame game, that's all

I understand you and yes, I'm putting the coaches on blast here. I think they are great at getting guys in shape, but are terrible at scheming for opponents and only average at teaching fundamentals. I don't think those are unfair criticisms, in fact I think they're backed up by a lot of evidence.

Lurker

Yes lateral speed is very important for a linebacker, but I was just disputing the notion that somehow he wasn't a good cover guy because of coaching - that was the original premise I was referring to.

My point is, that if the assumption is put out there that he wasn't a good cover guy because of coaching, that it COULD be due to physical limitations instead, and he is definitely average or below in speed for top LB's, and he is compact and not long. Both attributes which can help in pass coverage.

The point being that every single thing that is wrong with a player, always seems to earn the coaches a blast. Every time, just about. That's not always the case.

Dude on a Pale Horse

All time greatest quote on Canespace, "Dr. King would have punched him in the face." Lol.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: Lurker | April 28, 2015 at 01:03 PM

He has played weakside and played well in coverage. His speed isn't reflected in his 40 time either. Most LBs can't cover pro TEs coming out of college, the offensive players are generally ahead. Perryman will learn and will be fine. Look at the kid from Wisconsin that just retired, Perryman is a similar player.

VA Cane

Sad what happens on our streets; sad police seem to be over the edge and against certain people, not just black people....working people normal people....those with money buy their way out always.

It is even more of a shame people like Al Sharpton are involved; he's an agitator, publicity thrill seeker, crowding the camera, tax evader, civil rights spokesman wanna be fraud. The guy is a jerk, needs to be bulldozed....Perryman blasting him blindside would be grand!

Dr King would punch him in the face; he really would as non-violent as he was. no content of character here; surely he is an embarrassment to all Americans.

Dude, or maybe it's because Perryman is limited physically in his coverage ability. You can't coach length and speed.

I'm not badmouthing him, I loved his aggression, but it can be argued he will never be a great cover guy. Good enough to play in the pros at a good level, just not great in that aspect. It's why I think he stays on the inside.

There's more than one way to look at it.

I have no problem drafting Perryman in the 1st. He's such a physical player he'll cause turnovers. He's not great at covering, but I don't think he's been coached well in that department. He brings the boom for your defense. These guys need to imagine just how bad Miami's D wiuld have been without him.

It will be interesting to see who the Dolphins pick! I've seen around 10 mock drafts and just about everyone has a different player for their pick.

I still think they should trade and try to get more picks!

I don't think Flowers and Dorsett in the 1st are out of the question.

I also don't think those two falling to the second are out of the question either, but odds are that Flowers goes in the 1st with Dorsett a 50/50 of going in the 1st

It's possible, but the odds aren't great.

I will say we get 4-5 players in the first 4 rounds or so, with a good chance of 3-4 in the first 3 rounds with at least one in the 1st.

The question is where does Duke go? Round 3? Chick - round 5/6? Perryman, 2/3?

CaneRock

The thing with Walford, is I think His best football is ahead of em'...ala Jimmy Graham.

UMike

Either way should be a good draft for our Canes and a boost for recruiting as the NFLU grows bigger.

Terrance Sullivan

Total agreement UMIKE.

UMike

Flowers should easily go in the 1st...and I can see a team pulling the trigger in PD4 in the first round....but not DP52. As much as I love him and his smarts, he cant cover and is a little undersized.

CaneRock

Anywhere from 1, to 3 1st rounders is a possibility. Although I think Walford goes 1st R before DP52...crazy.

UMike

Ohio..as much as I would love that...it aint happening lol
