Miami football is a family and Hurricanes football players are members of a unique brotherhood that spans decades.

But for seniors Jaquan Johnson and Sheldrick Redwine, the bond runs much deeper than most. Growing up in the Richmond Heights area of Miami, Johnson and Redwine were two of the brightest stars shining for their local park football program.

"Me and Redwine, we played at the same park for the Richmond Giants and we grew up in the same neighborhood," Johnson said. "We just didn't go to the same middle school, but we've known each other from a while back. Redwine was on a lighter pound than I was, but you knew all the best players in the park. I heard Redwine's name after every game about being one of the hardest hitters at the park. I knew Redwine from growing up."

The duo finally paired up as teammates in high school, sparking the start of a long-lasting friendship while starring for Miami Killian High School.

"You never have to worry when we are with each other," Johnson said. "Even just growing up, it's the same type of thing. We weren't as close as we are now, but we always had each other's back. It takes a village to raise someone and he was part of that village for me just like I was for him."

Johnson was a four-time all county selection at safety for the Cougars and was selected to play in the US Army All-American Bowl before heading to Miami to further his education and football career.

Redwine starred at cornerback for Killian and appeared to be headed to Louisville after his senior year, but a visit to Miami just before National Signing Day ended with a scholarship offer to join Johnson and the Hurricanes in Coral Gables.

"God puts people in your life and we actually took the same path to get where we are," Johnson said. "We had to overcome the same type of circumstances, go to the same high school and same coaching and we both made it to the University of Miami and we are going through it now. He's my roommate now at the college level. Everything is meant for a reason."

I got my tickets in the mail for a Canes game. It's only Miami vs. Toledo. Sept. 15th, at Toledo.
But, they have a fairly new stadium. 1 1/2 hours from my house in Michigan. Can drive there with my man, Richard.
Excited and can't wait!!
GO CANES, prepare, prepare, prepare, for every game, because you never know.
Does everyone feel optimistic for the season???

Iโ€™m a little scared of the FIU game. Never under estimate a butch coached team. He knows how to recruit. He canโ€™t get the talent we can. But there r still a shit load of talent in south fl that r unrecognized. Heโ€™s a master of the needle in the haystack proverb. He will find them. Plus itโ€™s his 2nd year. And he kicked butt in his 1st year.

Go Canes!!

Based on what Iโ€™ve been reading donโ€™t think itโ€™s a massive assumption to say Weldon would be the first guy off the bench if Rosier struggles.

Go Canes!!

Not a surprise: Florida State @CoachTaggart announces QB Deondre Francois will start opener vs. Virginia Tech

Morning Terrance....do you still have an extra room for sunday night or a room I can throw in some cash on?

Harry Miller

I will be on my way to Texas at 6:05am tomorrow
to watch one of the most important games the Miami Hurricanes have had in a long time. This could be the start of really big year, which I believe it will be. Rosier needs to come up big and take care of the ball. He has a lot of play makers to work with and I am believing he is ready this year if what I am hearing is true.

Looking forward to seeing all of my Canespace friends. Canes 31 LSU 13

Tom would you please give me a call.

Terrance Sullivan

Native I got U Brotha. U will be rooming with KY and Myself Brotha! Looking forward to it. Go Canes!

Terrance Sullivan

Harry we will see U there as well Brotha!

Interesting quote from CMR about Rosier:

โ€œThe greatest improvement he has made is with his deep ball throws,โ€ Richt said on the Joe Rose Show on 560 WQAM. โ€œWe have to be able to do that. So many people play man coverage now that you have to take some shots. I think the run-pass option that people run now forces people to play man coverage. If you play a zone, you get a linebacker that is halfway in between a running play and a passing play and you get eaten up.โ€

BigWindyCane1

Rosier needs to be accurate and consistent. 54% completion rate Rosier had last season is unacceptable, and among the worst in college football. Rosier's 37% on deep balls isn't as bad, but Rosier also had a lot of open receivers at that range.

If Rosier has indeed improved his reads and accuracy like CMR says, the Canes can expect a completion rate of 60-65%. With a completion rate at that level, the Canes will have a prolific offense that will be among the best in the ACC with this roster full of playmakers. Choc and the fullback along with a healthy Richards and Cager, should improve third down and red zone coversions, which were also abismal.
