Ivins: My biggest take after watching Miami practice this morning for 20 mins: the WR group is elite. So many dudes.

Dugans has recruited a lot of future NFL talent on the roster. Dugans is also developing those already on the roster. I watched him work Paradise Camp. Dugans looks like an elite WR coach. Perhaps one of the best in college football. Glad CMR found a way to keep him here in Miami. Recruiting and developing elite WR talent is one of the major keys in returning the Canes to the top of college football

Never took the BUS to school. Walked to school every morning, snow or sun. So, rev up the BUS, and I will root every weekend. Still may go to the Toledo game. Will call tomorrow for two tickets at the Toledo Box Office. Maybe I will get lucky. Getting so close to the opening game. Getting nervous, like I always do. Hope there are a lot of televised games.
My best to all of you.

MLAlumni1970

Guess I will settle for Toledo. Tickets are $83 and my honey and I can drive from home in Michigan. Please let me know if any Canespacers are going. Day game, 12 noon. Perfect. Maybe we can meet in the parking lot somewhere. I will take extra vitamins!!!

Homer looks jacked! Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being a Top 5 back in the country. I always thought he was better than Walton.

Go Canes!!

Msn wer hsve an embarrassment of riches at WR going into this season.

Actually, we do at nearly all the skill position.

Could be a special year.


NativeCane

Yes he does TBC/GC...Im lookin' for the Canes to embarrass them LUS Tigers in Notre Dame payback fashion!

Dem Canes!!!

thirstybuzzardcane

No doubt Go! Sounds like our OL is better than I'm expecting. We shall see though!

thirstybuzzardcane

TE is the only position I don't feel comfortable about!

thirstybuzzardcane

I just worry about LSU's defense. I wasn't too concerned about ND's.

We had a hell of a time against Clemson's D. I'm expecting LSU to be just as good, if not better.

thirstybuzzardcane

Don't know what the o/u will be in the Miami/LSU game, but I'm definitely will be taking the under.

thirstybuzzardcane

My guess is they'll have the O/U at probably around 34 points.

thirstybuzzardcane

Canes will win 17-7.

The bus just came out of the body shop with a brand new paint job for 2018! 12-0 is where we go.

Go Canes, I can clearly remember when it was the opposite, in the waning days of Coker. When we could not even recruit enough wide receivers to meet minimum requirements.

Great job by CM Richt et al in stockpiling wide receivers. Even losing Sam Bruce and Dionte Mullins quickly (both 4 star recruits), we have absorbed those losses and have the deepest, most talented wide receiver Corp since 2001.

LSU Defense is not on Clemson Level lol Stop It! otherwise good points and yes I agree take the Under in the Game! Miami 21 LSU 17

Go Canes!!

💯

Clemson’s D will be other worldly good this year. Seen multiple mock drafts projecting FOUR first rounders from their d-line.

LSU isn’t nearly that good.

We’re going to beat them convincingly.

Go Canes!!

Garvin, Silvera, Rousseau and Ford will be a terror here:

Chirinos: Another note from today, Hurricanes DC Manny Diaz said several young players have flashed early. Mentioned Al Blades twice, Nesta Silvera, Jordan Miller, Greg Rousseau, Gilbert Frierson, DJ Ivey. Also said Gurvan Hall's back and "doing Gurvan Hall things."

Go Canes!!

Chirinos: Any of the newcomers on the defensive line impress Joe Jackson?

“Greg Rousseau. He’s one of those freak of natures. He’s got the height, the get-off, the speed. He’s got everything. His first step is maybe at least two yards, so he’s got everything."

thirstybuzzardcane

The only question mark LSU has is their DL. Now Clemson's front line is loaded! I would take LSU's DB's and LB's over Clemsons.

herbieibis

DB'S are only as good as the front line in front of them.

thirstybuzzardcane

I'm expecting LSU line to be good even though they lost players. It's kind of like us. We lost 3 starters, but our DL will probably be better this year than last year.

TBC trying to pass on a Rosier article, unfortunately the pass will sail 10 yards over WWIN's head.

Both TBC and WWIN will later concur and agree that the incompletion was due to Richt's play-calling.

Guess who just got back today
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed that much to say
But man, I still think them cats are crazy

The boys are back in town

I am so, so, so hopeful he has a huge year, but everyone would have to acknowedge it's a concern when a fifth year senior is still talking about mechanics and accuracy.


Miami Hurricanes quarterback Malik Rosier knows he’s not perfect. He’s working on it

BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
sdegnan@miamiherald.com

August 06, 2018 02:16 PM

University of Miami quarterback Malik Rosier knows he’s not perfect.

Be assured that he’s working on it.

And be assured that Rosier took a deep, cleansing breath when he learned on July 18 that coach Mark Richt made it official in every way except, perhaps, with a printed depth chart, that the fifth-year senior would be the starting quarterback in 2018 — or at least for the Sept. 2 opener against LSU.


Rosier broke into a smile and took a few seconds to quietly laugh

“I think it was kind of a sigh of relief,” he said.

Rosier, however, is not letting up. Anything but. After throwing 10 of his 14 interceptions during the last six weeks of UM’s 2017 campaign, he knew he’d have to improve his accuracy to have a shot at leading the Canes again. He threw for 3,120 yards and 26 touchdowns last season and ran for another 468 yards and five scores.

But those picks...

He said Monday that one of his shortcomings last season was not grasping the total on-field picture.

“Sometimes I would kind of get funneled into seeing one side of the field,’’ Rosier said, “and now I’m seeing the whole field. It’s a lot better.

“The receivers are making plays for me all over the field and I told them guys, ‘I’m going to protect you. You’ve just got to catch the ball.’’’

Those receivers are as plentiful and talented as they’ve been in many years, Rosier confirmed.

“You don’t have guys tiring out,’’ he said. “You go from Ahmmon [Richards] to Darrell [Langham] to Evidence [Njoku] to [Dee] Wiggins at X; You’ve got got [Lawrence] Cager, [Mark] Pope, [Brian] Hightower at Z; Jeff [Thomas], [Mike] Harley and Quez [Ezzard] at Y.


“We’ve got guys that can move, we’ve got guys that can play, so, I think the best thing here now [is] we’ve got fresh guys coming in every play. Now we don’t have to worry about getting someone hurt or someone being fatigued as much.”

The two specifics, according to Rosier, that Richt and personal quarterbacks coach David Morris have stressed repeatedly regarding how to improve his accuracy:

▪ Shortening his throwing motion

▪ Reducing his stride

“Sometimes I overstride, which gets my body wide, gets my arm down and [Morris] said, I’m starting to overthrow balls. Those were the two biggest things I worked on,” Rosier said.

“My accuracy, it’s not even me being accurate, all the guys are accurate. I’m pretty sure Cade [Weldon] was throwing 80 percent yesterday. Kosi [Perry] was in the 70s. I was like in the 70s-plus.

“We have guys…it’s not even me, it’s like, everybody, Jarren [Williams] —we’re competing, man. And it’s so good to know that, like the guys behind me, if something happens to me we’re going to have a guy that can step up and make plays.”

Rosier will be pushed this season by redshirt freshmen N’Kosi Perry and Cade Weldon, neither of whom have played in a college game. And then there’s true freshman Jarren Williams, who had an impressive spring and became the newest darling of Hurricanes fans.

“Even though I’m the starter,’’ he said, “if I come out and have a bad day, [Richt] can be like, ‘Hey, listen, Kosi’s the guy, or Cade’s the guy. I can’t just let my guard down. I still have to compete, still have to come out here and show these guys that I am the guy and I can be the starter.”

Rosier, who looks thicker and stronger at 6-1 and 212 pounds, said he’s “100-percent’’ healthy after playing through serious shoulder pain the last part of the season.

What Rosier wants to prove most at this point, after failing to lead the Canes to victory not only against Pittsburgh in the regular-season finale, but against Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game and Wisconsin in the Capital One Orange Bowl, is that he can win the big ones.

“People know I can win,’’ he said, “but I feel like the bigger games you win, the more noticed you get.

“And it’s not even just me. I feel like we went a long way and we did something that Miami’s never done, but we didn’t finish right. That’s the chip on my shoulder.

“It’s also my last year. I’m trying to leave a legacy. I’m trying to leave my last statement as ‘Hey, we won the ACC Championship, hey, we played for the national championship.’

“ I want to bring Miami back because we’ve got the talent to do it.”

Great stuff!

I Just got my 2 tickets for the Toledo game. $172 for 2. The Canes sections were all sold out. Can't believe it. She said the whole stadium will be sold out by next week. Hard to believe, really. But, it's like Notre Dame. Every team wants to beat us, which is good. Nice to be hated!!!
GO CANES!!!!!

Go Canes!!

That’s going to be a great atmosphere ML! Has to be one of the biggest games they’ve ever had there.

Enjoy!
