Miami Hurricanes: Freshman Jaquan Johnson May See Serious Playing Time Against Bearcats

This could be the game where JJ earns a big role and doesn't relinquish it, due to suspensions. He's been mostly ST up to this point.

And he's been fantastic on ST, too.

Reading about Kiel's injury Saturday, looks like He got injured the same way last night...no way in hell He should've played last night, especially coming off a short week.

That 3 yd. rule had nothing to do with that TD, the CB just screwed up. Basic football, don't come up until the ball crosses the LOS.

Anyone who didn't get the opportunity to live through the memories the OB provided some of us, really missed out on something that will never happen again anywhere.

Yes the dominant way we played the game back then compared to the rest of college football was amazing, but it was just a part of the overall feeling that place oozed.

VERY interesting:

Defensive Play Calling

Miami’s defense was much more even on the play calling for the defensive line playing 2 gap or 1 gap technique compared to the FAU game. Miami played 1 gap technique on 15 snaps, averaging 6.1 yards on these runs. Nebraska averaged 3.5 yards on the 10 snaps Miami 2 gapped.

For formations, Miami lined up in a 3-4 on 31 snaps, allowing 3.7 yards on these plays. Miami played 19 snaps in a 4-3, allowing 4.8 yards per. Miami played nickel on 32 snaps allowing 8.1 ypp. Miami blitzed on 20 pass plays, with Nebraska averaging 8.2 on these plays. When rushing 3 or 4, Miami averaged giving up 4.8 yards on 37 pass attempts.

UM’s Corn Elder is Nation’s No. 1 Graded Corner

The Miami Hurricanes had seven players drafted last May, with five getting their name called in the first three rounds.
Naturally, many questioned where the next wave of playmakers would come from (after quarterback Brad Kaaya) during a hot-seat season for Al Golden.
In steps Corn Elder, Miami’s starter at nickel corner to begin the season, and now Pro Football Focus’ top ranked corner in the country through Week 3. Although the cornerback grades fluctuate from week to week, he’s coming off a stellar performance against Nebraska, which included hauling in an overtime interception that would lead to a Canes’ victory.
He headlined PFF’s Dream Team heading into Week 4 after his one-interception, two knockdown game. He’s been excellent in coverage this season, allowing only three catches for 19 yards on nine attempts.
Corn also has one punt return for a touchdown (another that was called back), a sack, and a recovered fumble. He’ll figure to have plenty of playmaking opportunities next Thursday night when Miami takes on a dynamic Cincinnati offense averaging 413 passing yards a game (2nd in FBS).

Marlins Man spends the money but he's a canes hater. Believe that.

He can play both, but I think Corn is a better zone CB...He makes hits that the Safeties should be making. He'd be a perfect fit in Lovie Smith's Tampa-2 scheme.

Where's the proof that he wouldn't have done better at RB? RB depth was low... who shoulda got the nod... Corn or Dallas?

I know you looking to give Golden credit for something but he gets none for this lol! Why? Because it was the normal thing to do for a player his size

Go Canes

I would think the proof he's not better at running back is the fact he's not playing running back.

Actually it's exactly what it means.

The smart argument is this: if I was Corn's advisor/family, I'd be THRILLED Golden put him in as a DB, especially a CB. Absolutely, 200% thrilled!! It's the best thing that could have ever happened to him.

Why would anyone want Corn to be an RB is beyond me.

Best personnel move, or close to it, that Golden has made - both for the team & Corn.

I have a reason for saying this. Guess.

100% WRONG! Try again! That's just like saying Bo Jackson was better at baseball because he stopped playing football...no he stopped playing because of Tampa Bay punkass!

But of course you would think that because Golden is yet to make a mistake in yo eyes!

Corn = Choc = Bo: They are ALL great athletes who can do, play and be what they want.

I am NOT equating them as far as talent level just saying they all have special skills that allow multiple outcomes.

Posted by: Lurker | September 25, 2015 at 08:41 PM

You dipping in the Kool-aid and don't even know the flavor!

For the record...

First of all me and Corn are both cool with him playing corner...matter of fact I PREFER he play corner! Why? Because NFL teams are constantly looking for good corners! Now him not starting is another issue with Me.

Secondly I'm not arguing for him to play RB RIGHT NOW. My argument is about the fact that no one can say he wouldn't have done better on offense, which is a FACT! How do I know? Because he didn't get a chance for us to see if he woulda been better so we'll NEVER KNOW!

WWIN

Go Canes... don't respond to my post YOU deem negative if you don't respond to my post that's not negative!!!

Thanks!

Go Canes

There's a service rating Corn the best corner in the nation. The best of the best. So to be better at RB he'd also have to be rated #1 wouldn't he?

Regardless, I could care less. He's a hell of a playmaker and to my untrained eye he's at the perfect position to make a ton of plays for us then millions for himself.

And of course this has nothing to do with coach Golden. Don't have any idea why you'd even mention that.

Lurker

He's way better off playing corner.

Way smart move by Golden. You've got to give him that, if nothing else.

golden made the best career choice he could have ever made for Corn, and straight data backs that up.

WWIN

Posted by: Go Canes | September 25, 2015 at 10:27 PM

He can't be the #1 DB in the nation when he doesn't even start on a unranked team... based on your philosophy... so that rating system is flawed!

I said offense not RB... but I brought up RB because of the situation with Dallas Crawford... and if you ask me Dallas is a better RB than safety! I think slot WR would have been his position

TonyCane

Still can't believe Cincy played Gunner last night. Absurd move on 5 days rest. Selfish.

Posted by: Lurker | September 25, 2015 at 10:27 PM

It was a NORMAL move... when someone comes in as a athlete that either played RB, QB, or WR in high school they are going to either switch to DB or keep playing offense. Let's not act like this was a move that most coaches wouldn't have done. Look at Gibson at Ohio state... is Meyer a genius for switching him?

Posted by: 30CINCO | September 25, 2015 at 01:56 PM

Interesting. I was keeping track of the 3-4 vs 4-3... For a little while at least... And noticed much more 3-4. the D was improved thru 3 quarters. Besides the alignments the other change noticed was much better tackling.

If they can fix the pass D this could be a great season. Knocking the ball out Of the receivers hands with a big hit is a great way to negate bad coverage but against Better, bigger receivers won't be as effective.

I'm rooting for D'no. I would like nothing more than to see him succeed.

Go Canes

Me too Epi.

We have such a good young talented squad, the thought of this staff failing and having to start over makes me ill.

We've had a few minutes of lapses in the last two games, but the overall product has looked absolutely dominant at times.

If this staff can get this team to play with that kind of focus and avoid self inflicted mistakes, we can and will have a hell of a season.

There is no doubt this can be a springboard to a great resurgence if that happens, because the 16 class is LOADED.

86Cane

Watch this video on Elder and tell me he is no good with the ball in his hands:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxfKkyYvdeM

Go Canes

Don't think anyone is saying he's not good with the ball. His punt returns and high school stats prove that.

Just think it's pretty tough to be a better RB than DB if you're being considered the best one in the country right now.

Like I said last night, don't really care. Just incredibly happy Golden struck out on all those other players, had no choice, then Corn made himself into the beast he's become, all by himself, by complete luck because our staff has no clue what was best for him, with no coaching, at all.

Thanks Tim Irvin.

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

No one, I repeat, NO ONE said that he was not good with the ball in his hands, nor did anyone say he wouldn't be a good RB/WR.

What was said was, he is way better at DB than he would be at RB/WR.

There's no way he'd be perceived as the #1 player at RB/WR right now, like he is at CB, grading out as the best in the country.

That's been my argument the entire time. Bucking the perception he'd be BETTER at RB than DB, which clearly he would not be, because he wouldn't be ahead of Fournette, Chubb, Cook, etc.

I wanted him at WR anyway so whatever.

#GoCornBeatCincy

CaneRock

Corn's HS HLs look like Clinton Portis' HS HLs.

CaneRock

In hindsight, judging by His HS HLs, you could kinda see Corn would be a good DB at the next level. Kid had what I would call action figure hips even at the RB position.

Go Canes

I did?

All I said is if he was better at RB than DB he'd be playing RB.

Cause if he was better than where he's ranked at DB then he'd be Fournette, who is #1 at RB.

Honestly, don't know how this has turned into a thing. Kid is an absolute beast.

Just glad we got him late, he's excelling and we are 3-0!

Re-booting the program would be a disaster. Obviously a repeat of last season and there isn't really a choice, but anybody rooting for Ls is doing so out of personal dislike for the coaches, not the program's best interests.

You're right about the talent. I was unsure coming into the season what we had, but we do have players on both sides of the ball. Considering the schedule, we could play in a major bowl game. Tighten up 3rd downs and RZ offense, keep tinkering with the pass D and maybe consider putting somebody else in to coach ST, and it's not outlandish to see a 1 loss season. Of course that means no more losses to teams who will be home for the holidays.

If the above happens we should be looking at an epic signing day. And if that happens, sky's the limit for the next few years, which I think is slightly more preferable than starting from scratch with some second tier coach trying to find his way.

Yep and yep.

Thursday's game will be a good indicator. Cincy sucks but they can throw and they can score.

We cannot let them get a ton of momentum and be stuck in a tight game late.

They need to go in and handle their business against an inferior team.

Lurker

Corn's move to corner will pay big time career wise.

Study the NFL drafts over the last several years, and review not only that but comparative salaries by position. Running backs have been drastically devalued in terms of earning potential, as well as draft position. A cornerback will make way more bank than the average NFL running bank.

Great move for the young man's NFL career as long as he continues to improve and hone his craft. Also, are people going to tell me he would have been made a CB at every school he would have gone to?

Let me just give me one example, and I don't even know if he was ever considering going to UF or not, but I'd bet you they would've made him into an offense of player at UF, Because they're desperate for offensive skill players, which would not have been as good for his future NFL potential.

The Canes have a lot of talent on this team. These coaches are developing future NFL players and its time for the results to show on the field.

Its simple - I would like to see the players improve their fundamentals and execution and the coaches improve on teaching the players and putting them in the best position to succeed every week every week and everything else will take care of itself.
