I'm told the injury is to one @CanesFootball player and not two as some have reported.

But he does attend games, which are the only true fans. Only their opinions matter. Everyone else is wrong.

Does everyone really want to play this game?

Dude on a Pale Horse

Best wishes to whoever got hurt.

CaneRock

PRAYERS!

As a parent of a football player, that's some scary stuff. Hopefully they're just taking precautionary measures.

Go Canes

Reports now say it was only one player.

Bad but better news than before

Ohio_Cane

Some on twitter reporting it was Gayot. No official word from reporters or anything yet.

To clear up rumors, UM has confirmed ONE player transported from practice to hospital after apparent collison. Being called precautionary

Ohio_Cane

So here's what we know:

TWO players collided head to head.

ONE player airlifted.

I've never heard of a "precautionary airlift", but that's what it's being called.

Some saying it's LB Marques Gayot

Being called precautionary

If so...GOOD!

Lurker

It's not even clear if there was an airlift. The helicopter was there, but there was also an ambulance.

TheeMackJones

Again, WHY the conflicting reports??

What happened to MEDIA integrity!!

Where did all the Edward R. Murrow's, Woodward's and Bernstein's go?!!

CaneRock

Manny said the player was airlifted.

That's true. Miami didn't state the player was airlifted. Others have assumed that because it landed on the field.

Ohio_Cane

From Manny, though: A University of Miami football player was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital Wednesday morning after being injured in practice, a Miami Herald source has confirmed.

TheeMackJones

Adding to the speculation and rumor mill.

Golden CANCELED his weekly ACC presser, so it's must be a SERIOUS injury. Otherwise, why cancel a presser IF the injury is not of a severe pressing nature.

Lurker

Manny's been wrong before.

TheeMackJones

Posted by: Lurker | September 23, 2015 at 01:00 PM

However, U tend to be WRONG most of the time!!

TheeMackJones

Palm Beach Post and Sun-Sentinel CONFIRM what the Herald's Manny reported. ESPN also reporting Hurricane player being airlifted for safe measures and what not.

Ohio_Cane

Manny's been wrong before.

True.

This guy knows stuff:

Geo305 ‏@CIS_Geo 32s32 seconds ago

I was told before that it was a LB but had no for sure confirmation up till a minute ago who it was. Hope he will be ok.

Player ID/injury still unclear, but several UM people I've chatted with expressed confidence things are OK.

GFY

Go Canes

The twittersphere is saying Gayot.

Whoever it is, hopefully the much more important swirling rumor that everything seems ok is true.

Go Canes

And what not?

VA Cane

Soup you are spot on.....you are a very observant man who has STUDIED the game for a long time. You know the game, you tell it like it is, you don't add a lot of fluff.......you are a great analyst of this game and the Canes....in short you would be an incredible coach; why? REALITY!!!!!!! What a concept eh?

There are those who do not see it that way.....they do not look at reality.

Thats my first approach.....face facts deal in reality teach develop execute fundamentals over and over, combine the individual talent and skills with a team of angry aggressive passionate fundamentally sound players, give them dynamic schemes sets and plays, develop a we not me attitude, learn and teach new concepts constantly....with a foundation firmly in fundamentals, make adjustments, manage people games time.....all while everyone gives 110%.....Apocalypse Now Death or victory....what happens....you WIN!!!!

If I make any statements, they are from what I do with my guys....they are never aimed at you; you KNOW this game!!
Go Coach Soup Go Canes!!!!!1

VA Cane

I feel, well hope, the D we saw through the first 50+ minutes better indicate who we are.

Agreed....and with dedication and hard work, we are, as you said, getting better depth,and it is getter brighter.
I see much better teamwork, great attitudes....these guys are enjoying going out on that field and playing. Thats a nod to coaching and development of players...mentally and physically!!!

Go Canes Beat UC!!!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

Anytime someone is airlift, it's not a very good sign. Lets pray he's OK!!!!

86Cane

Prayers for the injured player.

Terrance Sullivan

Praying for injured Player!

thirstybuzzardcane

If it's Gayot that got hurt, then our linebackers took a huge hit yet again. We were not very good at linebacker to begin with!

Lurker

I don't care too much about linebacker depth right now, that's for later. We still don't know exactly what happened and what the player condition is.

Injured Hurricanes player airlifted to hospital
September 23, 2015 | Filed in: 2015 season, Football, Matt Porter.

CORAL GABLES — A University of Miami football player was airlifted to a local hospital shortly before noon Wednesday following an injury suffered at practice.

In a statement, UM said the player was “transported to the hospital for precautionary reasons.”

Several sources close to the situation identified the player as sophomore linebacker Marques Gayot, a Boynton Beach native who played at Park Vista High.

Without identifying him, several UM sources, including Athletic Director Blake James, expressed confidence to the Post the injured player was OK and fully responsive. James said the player’s family has been notified of the situation.

An eyewitness told the Post a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue helicopter landed on UM’s Greentree Practice Field before noon. An ambulance arrived first and, per protocol, would have made the call for the trauma helicopter.

Gayot, 6-foot-1 and 222 pounds, played safety as a freshman. Playing weak-side linebacker this fall, he has 7 tackles, 2.5 for loss, and 1.5 sacks.

The situation came to light when coach Al Golden did not make his scheduled appearance on the ACC’s weekly coaches teleconference.

Hurricanes players and coaches are not scheduled to meet with the media in person until Sunday. UM (3-0) has a bye this week and visits Cincinnati (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1 (ESPN).

The last UM player known to be airlifted to a hospital for an injury suffered during competition was receiver Herb Waters, who suffered a strained neck last Nov. 23 at Virginia. Waters, now a senior, has 194 yards on 11 receptions this year.

VA Cane

Worst thing I go through, over the years is my guys getting hurt. Yes I teach them the correct and right ways, but I push them to be tough, hit hard and often. When they get hurt, and they have, I feel very bad. I am always with them at hospital doctor whatever; its on me. Every great once in a while I think I will get out of this game. You can and will get hurt; I did, my Dad Uncle Godfather did....you never know what will happen. I pray good things for our players at UM, hope all involved will be ok.

These kinds of things really make you think.

herbieibis

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah all these defensive problems can be fixed but in what decade are we talking about. Soup that wasn't u standing next to the anti-cane, DENO was it?
We wouldn't have depth issues at LB, if we would pay more attention to it in recruiting, year to year.
Cincy is going to throw the ball all over the field, so AL U better find some pass rushers, Pronto.

thirstybuzzardcane

Look like they did it.

I always wanted to know who that idiot was at all these sporting events wearing Marlins stuff.

Ohio_Cane

He's an FSU fan, if U haven't gathered that.

30CINCO

I believe we are undefeated when banners fly. Gonna be SWEET when we whoop them criminoles!

CaneRock

Sometimes those type of traumas are a result of the most mundane things. Remember being a practice one time, wet conditions, and our DE came around the edge, slipped, and ran His head into a players leg. I didn't even see it, you wouldn't even think a player could get hurt like that, scary stuff. He ended up being alright though, TG!

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

Yup! That's why I called him an idiot.....Should of called him a fukin idiot!

CaneRock

My son suffered an apparent head/neck injury in a game. Was running the ball, got tackled, and while fighting for yardage, a defender horse-collared em' from the front, and pulled His head toward the ground...I'll never forget that sound. He ended up being alright also.

CaneRock

"An ambulance arrived first and, per protocol, would have made the call for the trauma helicopter."

^^^^^^^^^^ That's what I figured, ain't no air ambo gonna come out there on a zero trip.
