We have some guys that have solid commitments but have not made it public yet - Thomas Brown on 560 WQAM https://t.co/CByOLigU3v

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

Do you guys think we have a couple of OL that are silent. Hopefully its the guys from American Heritage. Lets see if Rumph earns his pay and gets his former players.

Perry makes it look so effortless when he throws the deep ball. Man that boy is skinny!

USF fired men's basketball coach Orlando Antigua. The team struggled on the court and is in the midst of an academic fraud investigation (prompting Antigua's brother to resign). USF doesn't recruit well in the state of Florida, but recruits many of its players internationally.

What a crappy basketball program in Tampa. This example helps me appreciate what a great job Coach L is doing in Coral Gables

Yup, mmmmmmm hm, now I see what Blu was saying. Gonna be hard to keep this kid off the field next year...and good luck keepin' em' at UM beyond 2020:

OL play must improve a lot. We will see if Donaldson and Brown can get in the mix, but OL is the area most in need of a serious talent upgrade. Both the OLs here on the current roster must improve AND the newcomers must step in and play well. Tackles are needed in a big way, and Linder needs to stay healthy

I'm starting to warm up to the idea of Rosier just blowing the doors off the QB competition

I'm starting to warm up to the idea of Rosier just blowing the doors off the QB competition and having a season where he completes 65% of his throws. Brad was too streaky anyways. When he was hot, he was the best QB in the ACC, when he was cold, it was four or five 3 and outs in a row. Whoever it is, I'm just looking for some solid play and insane leadership qualities. The OL absolutely must get better. They need to take this year personally and have some fire as a group. McDermott and Darling especially because they have 1st and 2nd round talent.

WR Mike Harley. This 3-star WR hails from Ft. Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the preeminent HSFB programs in America. Harley is committed to West Virginia, but recently received a scholarship offer from Miami. Last week, Harley stated that he was shutting down his recruitment (i.e. no more communication or visits) to stick with West Virginia.

So, why include him? On Monday, Harley told 247sports that a visit to Miami was still possible. Yes, that’s contrary to the “shutting things down comment”. Yes, that’s the circuitous nature of recruiting. Harley and his parents may visit Coral Gables the weekend of January 13th. Miami needs WRs and needs speed, and Harley could provide that in spades. We’ll see what happens.

I am hesitant about the OL...like I said...bring out Freddy. we are slew foot club foot shuffling linemen....you have to come out quick move fast and quick on reach blocks and chips, run to blocks, and fire out be the aggressor on pass blocks. We could have TB12, but it is all about that OL.

I watched the QB tapes....and I know they are HS....but I got the most positive from Perry. he needs a little weight...but he has some muscle. He makes plays, has a good arm, and is not afraid to step up or be physical...great block on that one play. I like him.

Allison may be different....but he plays from a crouch....shuffles at times...and watch him when the D gets near....steps back, hops back, ducks shoulder down while turning.....anything to AVOID any contact...he may be different now....but he does not want any hit at all...he looked afraid.

Weldon seemed ok; he looked like a good QB....stands in pocket decent arm...loops the throw at times....a little slew footed at times like BK....Seemed ok....not great not bad.

Rosier was ok as well; he moves good, throws a decent ball...gets rid of it....and has played.

Allison and Weldon....seem a little slew footed, not real quick no real moves....like that pocket clean....not fond of pressure, avoid it especially Allison...he is backing up....Weldon a little better, he can move a little better and follows through. Neither is going to get away from say a FSU rush/blitz....Turf Face guys....

I think Rosier and Perry are far more athletic, quick, swivel head can figure out surroundings, improvise, almost like they thrive on getting things done...both are far more athletic qbs. Perry has a pretty strong arm.

I do not know about the other 2.
Without an OL nobody is going to do well. We cannot have a killer D and a bogged down run O with a porous OL...somebody gets creamed....and wins could be tough.

Let the competition begin for QB.....I liked Perry, him and Rosier can move around.

CaneRock

BigWindyCane1...I hear ya', but every year we get a good class, we miss out on that key player, and then we turn around and say the player that plays the same position as Him that we did get, is better. Point blank, we need to put the icing on top of these classes and land the signature player. I'm seeing it on defense, but not so much on offense.

TheeMackJones

It's all about the offensive line. Well duh, do U think so?

Here's an excerpt from ' Miami Slice ' about Miami's mid-season offensive woes and it's offensive line.
+++++++++++

" Perhaps the single most underachieving performance by a unit the Canes had this year as a team was putting up only 13 points against a UNC defense that allows almost 25 points per game. The single most underachieving performance as a whole was losing to Notre Dame. That loss was indescribably bad. Notre Dame only won four games, against Nevada, Syracuse, Army… and Miami.

And the things that lead to that loss, and the four-game losing streak in general manifested themselves again in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

That was the most fascinating part of the bowl game, in general. It was the Canes’ season summed up in four quarters. Amazing defense, periods of completely inept offense, and ultimately, an athletic explosion that ended up with everyone feeling really positive about the program’s direction.

But about that inept offense… it stems from the offensive line. Miami has elite running backs, but failed to run the ball (not for the first time) because they struggled up front. The difference between this ultimately comfortable victory and the four losses is that Miami started getting the ball out quick, and Brad Kaaya, who was on fire, ripped open the defense (after struggling through the first quarter). Once Miami got the players they needed in space and enough time to get the ball to them, it was over.

As it has always been at Miami. Get the ball in the playmakers’ hands and they’ll beat the opponent. But those playmakers include the running backs, and the one thing that must get better, either through recruiting, scheming, offseason work… whatever, is that the offensive line must be able to consistently win up front. That is the difference between what the Canes were this year and what we hope they are in the future. " http://slicemiami.com/2016/12/30/miami-hurricanes-blow-2017/

VA Cane

Yearby, Kaaya, the VT QB...not really ready for NFL....2 VT receivers are. Thts my take. I do wish them best of luck all seem to be good kids. Agents whispering to them I am sure. We move on; its anybodys job right now. D will be good.....maybe it is time to new wrinkles to the pro set stuff....I do a lot of different O...works well for me at all 3 levels....we will see.

Posted by: CaneRock | January 03, 2017 at 03:56 PM

I am sorry, CR. I only go by what I have seen live at HS games, not youtube highlight videos of someone in 2008, when Cook was in optimist football. Cook was returning kickoffs, punts and making big plays throughout high school. He was always fast, but Yearby was better and played more in the games that I saw. That was a legitimate debate.

Also, having been around sports a while, I would say that some athletes are naturally gifted - That much is obvious. IMO - the hardest worker who is also talented is the person that succeeds. That is what top programs try to recruit - the most talented players with the best work ethics.

I have seen high school football and basketball players go into an offseason, and return better than ever. I think for most people who followed Miami Central football, this was an honest debate back from 2010-2013.

Again, just my opinion.

BigWindyCane1

Was choc injured?

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | January 03, 2017 at 03:44 PM

Gray had a serious knee injury (torn ACL, I think) in preseason, and is still recovering. I read somewhere that Richards was the fastest player on the team, but I read that Choc posted a 4.44, and also had an impressive bench press and squat. In high school, I saw Choc score TDs against many of the best teams in Miami-Dade. Choc's team was coached by Coach Hill at Carol City, who was WR coach under Shannon. Hill was still building his team, and Choc's team wasn't very good at the tiem, but Choc stood out. Choc was an impressive athlete, and although he was a three-star (because of grades), I thought he was comparable to Cook in terms of speed and power, he just didn't know the RB position because he played QB in high school.

CaneRock

Here's Cook in 08', #4, He was outrunning people then:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tIwmSiT32Y

CaneRock

Yearby was never better than Cook...and Cook was never going to UM.

You don't all of a sudden acquire that type of talent going into your Sr. year of HS...especially at the RB position.

You either got it, or you ain't.

BigWindyCane1

I once saw Perry in person, and he is legitimately tall, but very skinny. I compare him to Teddy Bridgewater at this stage, and Bridgewater was IMO about 5-10 pounds heavier. I think Bridgewater moved around in the pocket a little better, but Perry might be a little more accurate with his throws. I think Perry's arm might be a comparable, maybe a little better than Bridgewater's at this stage. Bridgewater didn't run much at Miami Northwestern, but he was clearly one of the best athletes on a team full of future NFL players, like Eli Rodgers, Arti Burns, Tray Walker, Amari Cooper.

When Perry sat in the recruiting section, he seemed to be doing mental reps when Kaaya was passing IMO, not just sitting there enjoying the game as a fan.

The one thing about the QB position that I have seen is that you never know what you havePerry seems to like the game.

BigWindyCane1

Sad to see Yearby go. I saw him play on those great Miami Central teams since 10 grade, and he was always a great player. I think Yearby was a better RB than Cook until his senior year, when Cook returned for his senior year bigger, faster and more elusive in the hole and small spaces. By then, it was obvious that Cook was one of the best RBs in high school. I even heard he was going to commit to the Canes until something changed during the Christmas break that year.

Yearby has two kids, and I am sure many street agents are whispering in his ear. I thought Yearby was clearly the Canes second best RB this season behind Walton, and not by much. Walton just works harder, and no RB plays with more enthusiasm and love for the game. Walton played that way in high school at Booker T., and he was always explosive and a difference-maker when he entered the game. Walton also picks up the blitz and can catch out of the backfield. Walton follows his blocks (when he has some) and runs with reckless abandon and heart.

Yearby will be missed. I don't know what Edwards plans to do, but I still haven't given up on Trayone Gray (Chocolate), the fastest RB on the team, and Travis Homer, who is also fast and explosive. Chocolate (also his nickname in high school at Carol City) has had a problem studying and picking up the playbook, so I hope the past two years in college have matured him. Both should grow a lot over the summer, and I can't wait to see what they bring in the fall. Burns and McFarland (if he commits) might also feel as if they have a better chance to play with Yearby going pro.

This spring and fall camps will be exciting and give the writers a lot to write about. Every rep will be important. Spring testing results will be followed more closely. Depth charts will take on added significance. I love it!

What was Dos XX thinking when they replaced the original "most interesting man alive"? The new guy sucks....

Posted by: raizecane | January 03, 2017 at 01:11 PM

LOL. The new guy will have to grow on me. I haven't warmed up to him yet.

The Most Interesting Man in the World portrayed by Jonathan Goldsmith, was one of the best marketing concepts of our generation. Unfortunately, Dos Equis sent Goldsmith on a one-way journey to Mars in Goldsmith's last commercial. So, unless Goldsmith pulls a Matt Damon move (i.e., the movie, "Martian"), we are stuck with Agustin Legrand, as Goldmith's replacement.

Who cares about Goldsmith, when we have TSully and Soup?

TheeMackJones

Other than FSU's QB Francois returning next season. What favors Miami next season is their ACC opponents will all have new starting QB's next season. Even the Fighting Celt's will have a new starter at QB.

The bottom line: Miami's defensive unit will have absolutely have to CARRY the OFFENSE for four or five games during September and early October. And once Miami reaches the top of the stretch and enters the stretch run of the season. The new starting signal caller should be acclimated to major college football and what not.

Hyundais/Kias are good for fuel efficiency, but God forbid you get into an accident in one. My son totaled His 08' Optima, and He was only doing about 15 MPH at the time. A Crape Myrtle that couldn't have been more than 9 ft. tall sliced through it like butter...knocked the battery to the middle of the car. The bumper had a material behind it that looked like styrofoam.

Got em' a 97' Dodge Dakota, and I actually feel safer with Him driving that. No disrespect to Hyundai/Kia owners, but they don't make em' like they used to.

Here's a question for anyone on here who has ties to Gulliver prep or UM. What exactly is injured on Burns? I mean I know he hasn't played much since his sophomore year but no one has ever stayed what's wrong with him. Knees, ankles, shoulders, feet or what? Please inform!

Bumma would've been worse with Kaaya. Kaaya would've folded against Ole Piss when they had a 20 something to 0 lead on Bumma. Hell, He looked like He wanted to fold against WVU and we were only down 7-0...and then Richt bailed em' out.

Go Canes!

Michigan's QB threw for less yards and TDs behind a far superior O-line. And he had multiple costly pick sixes in huge games this year.

Barnett threw for far less yards, had fewer TDs, got sacked more and got shutout in his final game.

FSU's QB threw up a 9-27 with a pick six in his bowl game.


Your assertions of better or worse are questionable at best.

Lets play swap the QB's out with Kaaya with teams you mentioned:

Alabama Better with Kaaya or worse - Better

Michigan Better with Kaaya or worse - Worse

FSU Better with Kaaya or worse - Worse

Ohio State Better with Kaaya or worse - Worse

Washington Better with Kaaya or worse- Worse

Only if Kaaya is surrounded with unreal talent a a TEAM excel

CaneRock

Wouldn't be surprised if Perry is studying the playbook now, Kaaya was studying Coley's playbook while He was still in HS.

CaneRock

Kaaya would've came back if we didn't burn Morris's RS in 2010. Yes, believe it or not, this thing goes back 7 years ago.

Ohio_Cane

Gonna have to agree with Ariz. Perry is the starter, IMO, if he can pick up the playbook quick. Only negative is that he doesn't come until Summer and needs to add weight.

He fits exactly what Richt ran this year with Kaaya. He installed an offense he wants with a QB who didn't completely fit it (running). Perry is that guy. Very mobile and can sling it. Great arm strength that will improve in college weight/nutrition program. I'm down with Perry starting even though as a Freshman he'll have some hiccups. We're not winning the NC next season anyways. 2018 is our year.

None.

And I'm not buyin' that whole Rosier can't get the playbook, or He's not accurate angle, either. I'm just goin' by what Richt says...and that only public criticism He's made of Rosier, is from that article Go Canes posted...He tries to do too much. Hardly a scathing indictment. But we'll see, hopefully the next QB doesn't create a divistion between the fanbase like Kaaya did.

Go Canes!

I'd venture to say 95% of Canes fan wanted him back Sinister, so the answer to your question is a resounding yes they'd want him to return.

There are two reasons to think there could be some truth to that post: 1) Kaaya should not be leaving. He isn't ready. 2) Kaaya wasn't used right for stretches. Either way hope he does well.

BTW ariz is saying that the staff is anticipating Perry being the starter game one next season.

Go Canes!

Very interesting from Ariz. Pretty much how I feel about the situation as well:

Very, very early prediction but I'll put it on the line now
N'Kosi Perry will start game one for the Miami Hurricanes in 2017. I've heard he is going to be given every opportunity to win the job and this is who CMR wants to win the job. Richt wants the RPO to be the staple in the offense and Perry will give him the best chance to do that.

Even though the sports dynamics are different Brad Kaaya is no different than Carmelo Anthony. They put up good stats but their game play doesn't equate to wins. Kaaya walking off into the NFL sunset with a lot QB records in hand, while accomplishing jack sh!t

The CANEZ will be better next year!!!!!

Go Canes!

Good write up by Porter on the QBs. Echos a lot of what's been said here.

Go Canes!

Sorry but Im going to call a gigantic b.s. on that whole Kaaya-CMR thing until i hear it from someone reputable.

Thirteen games and not a whiff of tension being reported and now out of the blue Kaaya is saying to anyone he'd go to any extreme not to play for him?

Say what you want about that kid but whats undeniable is he's smart. Way too smart to allow coach bashing or even tension come out right before he declares.

You can also say what you want about CMR, but he is pretty much universally loved by all his players. He's never publicly blamed Kaaya for anything and now he's doing it privately to an extent Kaaya would rather be a 7th rounder than play again for him?

Both scenarios seem pretty unlikely. May be true, but it would be completely opposite from anything we've ever seen from either of them.

The guy is confident and wants to go to the NF so he left.

So thankful for him leaving the program in a better position than when he got here, Now its time to move on.

If Richt is right, it could win us several more games too. Wouldnt most people say Saban has a rigid vision that he will not deviate from?

Yeah but Saban is altering his philosophy on offense.

He went from a very Richt like o for most of his career to hiring Lane Kiffen, a creative agressive pro syle oc.

Hurts runs more shotgun than Saban EVER cared to.

The offense is being catered to Hurt's talents. He isn't being pigeon holed into Saban's old philosophy.

Bama's o struggles because HurtS is inexperienced as a true freshman and limited as a passer still.

When he grows, they will be dynamic.

A rigid vision should be applied to the approach of championship level focus and preperation, not refusing to adjust strategy because that's who you want to be, rather than being what your skills say you are.

Word from some people I know who are friends with him said he didn't have a great relationship with Richt. They said Richt was hard on him and blamed him for a lot of the offense's problems. One friend even told me Kaaya had allegedly stated, "I'd rather get drafted in the 7th round or sign as a free agent then play under Richt again". To top it off, Kaaya had given that friend his new cell phone number because he was getting a new phone for after the draft. This was like 3 or 4 days ago.

Go... that's kinda what I was saying re: Richt may be a reason BK leaves. Of course who knows how true this is.

Hopefully 2016 has shalen off the rust and 2017 brings an ACC Coastal Championship. Us and VT will have the best defenses in the division. If the OL makes strides and the next QB lives up to the star rating, we can win it.

If what Sinister said is true, it is good Kaaya left, but does not bode well for future championship runs.

Brad struggled because Richt played him outside of his skill set.

Playing to his strengths, he made us as potent as anyone on o.

It looks like Richt has a rigid vision of his team that he will not deviate from.

This will cost us big games.

The 2016 Canes a top 10 defense?

After what we witnessed 2012 on?

NOBODY saw that type of turnaround coming.

NOBODY!

That Rose Bowl score 52-49 says that either you have two great offensive teams or two poor defensive teams. Maybe both, but I think it was more poor defense than good offense. I think the Canes defense would' not allow either team to put up those kind of numbers on them. The Rose Bowl was exciting but I don't think either team is that much better than the current Canes team
