That is for the season tickets.

NOT the Advocare Game in Dallas dummy!

According to Diaz, he is feeling better about defensive tackle, cornerback and safety this season from a pure talent perspective. Diaz claims that the Canes are deeper at these positions than they have been lately.

I have to agree from a visual perspective. I saw some Canes during summer camps, and I was amazed. Position by position, players improved physically. Freshmen got a lot bigger and more muscular. Returning players get more muscular and ripped. I didnโ€™t recognize many of them.

Strength, conditioning and nutrition programs are definitely creating noticeable differences in players across the board. The Canes look bigger and more in shape across the board at every position. Players have noticeably gotten better physically across the board. We will see how that translates into playing games in less than a month, but they really look good.

This is where I miss Al Golden the most. He was great at making players bigger, fatter and slower. Man I miss that, I really do.

NOT!

LOL. CMR listened to you and the Canespace bloggers and he brought in Gus Felder and Kyle Bellamy. Felder and Bellamy are proving to me how valuable the strength, conditioning and nutrition aspects of a successful football program truly is.

They are saying major knee injury. Out at least 4 months. poor kid.

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

The Canes don't need Rosier to be great, just game manager who makes the plays given and doesn't make mistakes.

I have seen enough of Richards to know that when he is healthy, he is good enough to erase a lot of QB mistakes. New editions like Pope, are also that good (or have the potential to become that good), and Thomas and several others look good enough to make a lot of plays. Right now, Rosier has weapons at WR, but TE seems a little weak at this point. I wonder if the freshmen aren't ready, if they consider moving Langham, Cager or Njoku closer to the line of scrimmage on passing downs. This summer Langham looked big enough to be a tight end.

Glad to read that CMR is focused on the "money plays" in third down and red zone. If the Canes can improve in those areas, this offense can really be prolific and take some of the pressure off of the defense.

Glad I could be the brunt of your laughter!

thirstybuzzardcane

Any chance we'll see Langham lining up at TE? I bet they'll be some packages for him.

Terrance Sullivan

I would expect Langham maybe even Cager and Njoku in certain sets.

I agree 100%. But what will coach CHANGE to make that happen? U can't just wish it to be so, you have to MAKE it so!

The LSU kids are scared to play the Canes, so they are finding any way they can to get out of it... whether itโ€™s an injury or a felony!!! LOL #BEATLSU

Coach Thomas Brown. AWESOME work ethic!

Excellent Roach! Season can't get here soon enough!

Great video Roach. I may have to cut the RB coach some slack. Seemed like excellent coaching tips to me, but hey, what do I know?

thirstybuzzardcane

He better be right about Feagles. He was a huge disappointment last year!

Despicable. This garbage needs to stop, or it will be one more nail in footballs coffin. Ridiculous. Did they also deny water to players too? After all, we wouldn't want to show weakness, would we Maryland? How many college wrestlers, basketball players, or basketball players die each season in camp? One is too many!

Maryland's program does not deserve sanctions as a program - the players are not at fault - but the coaches and admin should get a lifetime show cause for this stuff.

BigWindyCane

First Fall scrimmage at the Hard Rock today. Closed to the media, but we should receive some post scrimmage stats. Rosier should put up bigger numbers than the backup because the #1 offense plays against the #2 defense and the #2 offense plays against the #1 defense.

This is tailor made for Rosier to shine. I would like to see Rosier complete 80%, but 70% should be a minimum completion percentage. Also will look for the offensive line to get the running game going and keep the sacks down.

HillviewCane

Philosophy question. Do people prefer 1s vs 1s or 1s vs 2s in these scrimmages?

Danny Isidora is starting for the Vikings tonight.

thirstybuzzardcane

Rosier had 2 TD's and 0 Int's in the scrimmage!

thirstybuzzardcane

Richt is not posting stats. He doesn't want to give anyone ideas of who's doing what.

thirstybuzzardcane

Richt said there were too many dropped passes.

thirstybuzzardcane

This has nothing to do with the scrimmage performance, but I think next year Weldon will be our starting QB.

CoCane

Nosier had 2 td no int (against the 2nd team). I'll take that. I hope his play makes me stop calling him Nosier.

From the reports, Perry is THE #2 and improving. He got praised tonight. Apparently, Weldon crumbled under the pressure...

Perry is making moves

Only thing I took from the the First Scrimmage was no major injuries. After that it was just fluff lol. We will find out September 2nd in Arlington Texas.

And All Strings got equal reps. So that's good as well.

YUP! 100%

NO MORE INJURIES!

Let's Go CANES!

BigWindyCane

It starts in the trenches. One thing that surprised me is that freshman from SOUTHRIDGE HS Delonte Scaife is clearly the #6 OL at different positions, ahead of Boulware, Gaynor and Brown. That is actually a good sign.

On DL, itโ€™s good to hear that Silvera will play. I read good things about the DL. Apparently, CMR seems to suggest the #1defense was dominant, as they should have been against the #2 offense. Still, itโ€™s hard to read anything into the competition at different positions without seeing the scrimmage

In the passing game, it appears that Richards is back better than ever. I am curious as to who dropped passes though. My guess is the second and third team receivers. CMR seems to hint that both freshmen TEs will play. Hopefully, Cagerโ€™s two TD catches signals as new credible red zone weapon. I hope this also signals that Rosier will eliminate the turnovers.

BigWindyCane

Also, CMR is very pleased with Donaldson at RT.
