I HOPE SO CAUSE THE REDSHIRT FRESHMAN BACKUP IS NOT BAD AT ALL

TonyCane

So is Tuberville going to play Gunner again on Thursday? What's 2 concussions in 5 days, right?

raizecane

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

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?

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

86Cane

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.

WWIN

Actually it's exactly what it means.

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

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!

Double sweet Jesus!

Ohio_Cane

UVA sucks.

Lurker

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.

Go Canes

Actually it's exactly what it means.

WWIN

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

Posted by: Go Canes | September 25, 2015 at 06:44 PM

Thats not proof... that doesn't mean he's not better

86Cane

Corn is Corn.

He is like Chocolate.

They both could excel at multiple positions.

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

Awesome:

^^^^^^^ Or Seattle's zone scheme.

CaneRock

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.

Lurker

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

Ohio_Cane

Yeah, he would've been a better RB. LOL!

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).

THIS IS MARLIN MAN, THE GUY WHO PAID FOR THE BANNER AT FSU. A TON OF CANE FANS LET HIM HAVE IT, NOW HE IS STEPPING UP AND DOING SOMETHING FOR MIAMI http://slaterscoops.com/news/2015/9/24/marlins-man-strikes-back

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.

Go Canes

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.

It was the most unique experience in all of sports.

It's going to be ok. They'll be flying a "KEEP AL GOLDEN" banner during the FSU game. Too bad it won't be from our fanbase... lol

Mark from Atlanta

Cincinnati game will be good test for the Def. ..they will score. ..that being said. ..if we get a comfortable lead....let's put in some guys like Rosier...cager, langham, etc....Walton and gray - dude needs some game experience. ..and get outta there....then. ..rubber officially meets road for this team! God bless all my Canes family and special prayers for Mr Gayot and his family! Amen.

That's right around the time I went to my first Canes game at the Orange Bowl.

Might have been 81, but no later than that.

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.

CaneRock

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.

This is an interesting topic. Makes defense even more difficult.

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.
