Here’s what Phil Steele had to say about the Hurricanes in his 2018 Preseason Top 40:


“The Hurricanes were my #2 surprise team last year. Despite entering No. 18 in the AP Poll, they would have made the playoffs if their offense was not banged up at the end and they would have upset Clemson in the ACC Title Game. Miami moves up from No. 73 to No. 49 on my experience chart and they now have a veteran quarterback, my No. 20 running back group, No. 17 receiver group, No. 25 offensive line group, No. 14 defensive line group, No. 7 linebacker group, and No. 9 defensive back group. They open with LSU in Arlington and do have Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech on the road, but none of those will be preseason ranked teams, so they have a great shot at running the table and an ACC Title win would put them in the playoffs.”

American Heritage and Patrick Surtain Sr. were blown out by Carol City in the Dade v Broward matchup. Northwestern pounded Miramar too. Lots of UM prospects in both games. Looks like it’s going to be a great season in high school football

All white. I don't know about that. I seem to remember a guy in skin tight leopard pants or gold lame strutting on the stage singing.

Rod Stewart wears white at ALL his concerts. IJS

If he had gotten 220 yds, he would have been a five star.

To get that fourth star, he needed 219 yds

Go Canes!!

"3 Star" RB commit Marcus Crowley last night:

Taggart: Our running backs and Wildcat will blot out the sun.

CM Richt: Then we will dominate you in the shade. And in the trenches.

Old Skool

Hmm. Great Danes. I wonder if they clipped his ears.

In other news, the FSU game could be a battle of the backfields. The following is from Tampa Bay Times

We've already seen glimpses of what FSU might do. While Jimbo Fisher repeatedly shot down the idea of Akers — a former high school quarterback — taking direct snaps in a Wild Cam package, Taggart tried it in the spring game.

Offensive coordinator Walt Bell said the depth and diverse skillsets could allow the Seminoles to use three or four running backs on one play. Taggart showed one potential way to do that at USF — a diamond formation with the quarterback five yards behind the center, one player behind him and one on each side. The Bulls did it in 2015 with backs Marlon Mack and D'Ernest Johnson plus tight end Sean Price, but it's easy to envision Taggart using it with three backs.

Or the 'Noles could ask a back to flex to the side or line up in the slot to exploit certain matchups.

HawaiiCane

Former 'Cane Vincent Testaverde, son of the great Vinny Testaverde, has been named the starting quarterback of the University of Albany Great Danes! Hopefully he and they start of the season with a BIG WIN when they face the Pitt Panthers on September 1st!

GO GREAT DANES!

CGNC

^^That should be - I liked him when he was the Faces.

CGNC

Go Canes - are you going to see Rod Stewart too?

LOL. I saw him back in the late 90's - good show but not really a fan of his since his Faces days with Ron Wood.

Its coming. Players will get representation in the system.

Old Skool

Really interesting opinion piece in the NYTimes

Here's a sampling:

New rules permit basketball players to hire N.C.A.A.-certified agents before declaring for the NBA draft. These agents will help players gauge their prospects; they will also be permitted to pay for certain expenses incurred during the recruitment process.

To which I would say ... Why not football players?

This has the potential to exacerbate a fundamental tension at the heart of the N.C.A.A. model: There is a huge gap between the number of players who make the pros and the number who believe that they will. According to a 2011 study, 76 percent of Division I basketball players believe that it is at least “somewhat likely” that they will eventually play professionally; more than half of Division II players and 21 percent of those in Division III think the same thing.

Where they go with that tension is very thought provoking.

Investigation had board members on it...really independent huh?
Smith is a liar, Urban is worse.
OSU is apathetic school....judging by their players and staff you do not have to be real smart to get in there...The FSU of the north.

Go Canes!!

Horrible:

Mary Jo White: Urban Meyer was aware of 2015 domestic violence allegations, he was informed of them by Gene Smith; both Meyer & Smith monitored the investigation for months. Gene Smith didn’t contact Ohio State compliance about the Smith domestic violence allegations

Go Canes!!

Meyer gets three games.

It should have been 0 games because he didn’t know or fired if he did.

Disgraceful.

Jacory Harris weighing in: After what I seen today, UM should have at least 5 first rounders this year. All those grown children out there!

Posted by: Go Canes!! | August 22, 2018 at 01:26 PM

Thanks GC. I really invite anyone to try to go down to Coral Gables and look at the players. In comparison to four years ago, or even last year, They are noticeably bigger, stronger , leaner and more athletic looking. Even the same players across the board look very different now. CMR has created a culture of excellence, and it shows physically. Players have been transformed physically and mentally, and it is obvious.

In other news ... red tide concentrations continue to increase in Pinellas.

In the water just north of Madeira Beach they found something new. The concentration of algae in the water there was large enough to qualify for the "medium" classification.

(I regret nothing. This will be more entertaining than the trailer park trash visiting smoldering dumpster of a football violation pretending to be a team, good call 86.)

Al left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams.
He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this.
Bradli packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen.
There were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little lineman goodbye.

They held each other tight as they lost on through the seasons they were so excited.
We got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not in prevent.
Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're unranked.
And like a fistful of pigskin laces, it can slip right through your hands.

Young hearts be free tonight.
Time is on your side.
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around
don't let 'em ever change your point of attack.
Paradise was closed so they headed for motor city in a blissful manner.

They took a two room apartment that was jumping ev'ry night of the week.
Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah
Al pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh!
Young hearts be free tonight.

Time is on your side.
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around
don't let 'em ever change your point of attack.
Young hearts be free tonight.
Time is on, on your side.

Al wrote a letter back home to Bradli's parents tryin' to explain.

He said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this way.

But there ain't no point in playing when there's nobody watching so we just ran
away.

Badli gave birth to a fifty eight point blowout loss, yeah!
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight
time is on your side.
Young hearts gotta run free, be free, live free
Time is on, time is on your side

Nice ranking about right; we have a lot to live up to after last year, but the last 3 games were really poorly done by all. We do have a lot of talent...QB is still a question but we go with what we have. I think we are stronger than opponents in each game, but on the filed is what counts. We will need to run the ball, but those 3 guys will be good IF the OL blocks. Hopefully QB can get it to the WRs. On D we are good, just need to tackle strong rush passer and get the TO chain out!

Pray to the Football God that Urban is terminated...probably not but he deserves to. Good football x and o guy; piece of trash re others and morality....everywhere he goes the discipline never goes wityh him. Despise him as person.
Hope you all have great time in TX....and enjoy it on tv all.

I am not going to the FSPoo Game either! I guess going to the LSU, SSU, FIU, UNC, Duke, GT, Pitt, Games are enough and hopefully the Chik Fil A Peach Bowl or if we are lucky and great the Capital One Orange Bowl(Playoffs).

BigWindyCane

I don’t know if Coach L has a Florida focus for recruiting like the football team. I think Coach L’s focus has been more on the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. With the exception of Huell, the Canes haven’t gotten commitments from the Nasir Littles, RJ Barrett’s, Anfernee Simmons, Scotty Barnes, etc., types.

I like Coach L, and I think he is a great coach - but his emphasis hasn’t been on recruiting FLORIDA. It seems to work for him. Coach L has been very successful, so I think he should continue to recruit to his strengths

58 Straight

I am not going to FSPoo.

BigWindyCane

Not sure what’s going on with the Carey, Jr. recruitment situation for the Canes. I heard the Canes are in the mix, but I am not sure if he is leaning towards the Canes or some other “blue blood” basketball programs, like Michigan St., Kansas, Duke, Kentucky or North Carolina . It would be a big get for Coach L, but I am not confident enough to predict.

But I really like his game. Carey is a program-changing, one-and-done type player.

Good stuff Windy. And speaking of depth, here’s Ivin’s expected depth chart:

https://247sports.com/college/miami/LongFormArticle/Miami-Hurricanes-Football-Projected-Depth-Chart-For-LSU-Game-Now-That-Camp-Is-Over-120861475/

BigWindyCane1

Great Canes programs of the past (such as Jimmy Johnson and Butch Davis eras) built depth and talent with recruiting and player development. CMR checks the player development box for sure. CMR has taken an interest in the development of the entire Canes scholarship roster, and the evidence is apparent from what I am reading about Fall camp.

Jhavonte Dean, Choc, Njoku, Willis, Patchan, Finley, Derrick Smith, Jahair Jones- these are players that may have gotten lost down on the depth chart last season, but this coaching staff and the strength and conditioning staff did not give up on them, and now these players have a real chance to contribute this season according to early reports out of Fall camp.

Player development is also a great way to sell recruits. If you come to Miami, you will be developed. Whereas, teams like Alabama seem to have just as many 4/5-star recruits who eventually transfer as to 4/5-star recruits who eventually start.

CMR is building this program the right way.

Go Canes!!

TonyCane

I love it. Perfect picture to represent the destruction that the Three Headed Monster is going to unleash on college football. First up, LSU. There should be some sorrow for the current football players. They know little of the crimes of their forebearers and Les Miles...crimes that they now have to answer for. Yes, that Peach Bowl brawl earned LSU a place on the List of Woe. In less than two weeks, discipline will be meted out. Those current players will know nothing but mediocrity and decline in their program from this point forward.

As touchdown throws fall into the hands of waiting Hurricane receivers like so many leaves falling from autumn trees, as the UM line blasts open holes like Ghidorah smashes apart buildings...LSU as a program will fall apart.

The three headed monster is coming. And it is famished.

Go Canes!!
