What golf course is that ?

6:24. That ain't insomnia. That's early bird. Insomniacs need to be up at least 2 hours before sunrise. And there can't be any logical reason to be up at that hour. For instance today, it was 4:00 AM with no alarm. I can't blame it on Taco Bell or Little Caesar's just God's will. Tomorrow, I have a 6:20 AM flight. Alarms will go off at 4:30, I'll be up, but it won't be insomnia.

CR, I like the Sherriffs/Ryan Williams comparison, with the differences being RW was not as mobile but RW was a little more consistent and accurate on this throws.

But the QB position will be won by the QB who shows the most promise in CMR's offense. If Perry is the guy, CMR will know it by the middle of Fall camp. CMR probably will not start Perry to begin the season, but if the starter struggles, Perry will be ready.

But Perry is a tall, very skinny QB. Perry has a great arm and all the raw tools to thrive in CMR's offense. Lamar Jackson demonstrated that a mobile QB can be very effective, even if his passing skills are average. Instincts are as a QB in an option offense are critical. Perry has a better arm than Lamar Jackson. Perry may not be as fast as Lamar Jackson , but he is close. More important, Perry appears to have the instincts and vision to make the CMR offense very explosive. We will see.

If Perry performs well in practice, the players will also lobby CMR to put him in, and coaches do sometimes listen to players when their requests make sense. A good QB also lifts the confidence and spirit of a team both on offense and defense.

Windy, Windy, Windy...how many times do I have to tell you that UM coaches ONLY listen to the fans at Canespace when it comes to making personnel decisions. C'mon man, U should know better by now?

You're right Soup, how can I forget. If Allison, Weldon, Perry or Sherriffs want to start, he MUST hire Epi, CR, VAC, TSully, Old Skool, Hassan or another Canespace street agent. Otherwise, he won't have a chance to see the field

^^^^ keep it on the down low windy. You start throwing the term "street agent" around, people will start to look too deeply into this #1 recruit class.

Elite TE Brevin Jordan (Bishop Gorman) on campus today and tomorrow. Don't be surprised if he commits before he leaves. May not be announced by tomorrow night, but wouldn't surprise me for staff to get a commitment from him before he heads home.

I remain skeptical. Too many people want war to happen. Seems like Gulf of Tonkin to me.

Would personally love to see Njoku land in Dallas - offense would be sick, but the D has too many holes.

Why Miami Hurricanes aren’t changing DeeJay Dallas’ position yet; Richt on RB depth situation
Matt Porter
April 11, 2017

CORAL GABLES — Miami coaches playfully argued last winter who would get to coach him first. Ron Dugans was the lucky winner of DeeJay Dallas’ services.

The true freshman from Brunswick, Ga., a high school quarterback with a multitude of offensive and defensive skills and a knack for scoring touchdowns, started his UM career learning how to play wide receiver under Dugans. The Hurricanes have been quite pleased with the call. Dallas was shown in a school-produced highlight video from last Saturday’s scrimmage making two tough catches. He has drawn steady praise from coaches for his ability to find the ball and secure it.

But the reality is, Miami’s running back room isn’t as full as the receiver room. This spring, the Hurricanes are down to two healthy running backs on scholarship: junior starter Mark Walton and sophomore Travis Homer, primed for a larger role in his second year.

Mark Richt, however, isn’t ready to shift Dallas, a speedy, shifty 5-foot-10, 200-pound ballcarrier, into a new role.

“If we didn’t think [Trayone Gray] was coming back, if we didn’t think [Robert] Burns was coming back, if we didn’t think there was any hope of anyone else joining us, then he would probably be the first guy on the roster to do that,” Richt said Tuesday. “But at this point, we didn’t want to jack him around, learn all this, then go to receiver. We’re trying to let him learn something.”

Richt said running back typically has “a little bit less of a learning curve” than receiver, and UM could train a willing learner like Dallas relatively quickly. “But our goal is not to do that,” he said.

Defensive coaches who spoke on signing day said it was possible Dallas, who also has trained at punt and kick returner this spring, could play defensive back down the road. But that seems unlikely this year, with grad transfer Dee Delaney, junior college transfer Jhavonte Dean and four-star prep standout Trajan Bandy joining the cornerback group this summer, and Jaquan Johnson, Sheldrick Redwine and others competing for time at safety. Dallas seems primed to contribute to UM’s offense (and special teams) now.

Gray, a redshirt junior, is performing individual drills but is not cleared for contact coming off last August’s ACL tear. Burns, a true freshman whose whose career at Miami-Gulliver Prep was plagued by injuries, hurt his shoulder soon after the start of spring drills and remains out. Richt said he believed Burns will return “in plenty of time for the season.”

UM is still interested in adding Clemson graduate transfer Tyshon Dye, who graduates next month.

Homer, from Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach, didn’t carry the ball extensively in the scrimmage because UM wanted to work on his pass-protection, commonly an area of deficit for young backs.

“That’s the thing we have to make sure he can do well,” Richt said. “I think he knows what to do now, and he knows how to do it, but you still have to be physical, even in pass protection. I think people are still kind of bull-rushing him a little bit. He’s got to learn to undercut block in a scrimmage, and when to man up and strike a guy and slow his charge and run him past the quarterback.”
