We ALL know that the Canes are going to be Da Gatahs 34-13 anyway so what's the big deal?

Terrance Sullivan

#Canes commits in new Rivals 250:
WR Bryan Robinson (77 - moved up 37 spots) and
Don Chaney Jr. (89 - up 7 spots)
Samuel Aneale (102)
Dominic Mamarelli (221)

Thanks BWC1.

Big windy
I think Francois is going to get a huge jump in the rankings - Jmo


Go Canes!!

Lower bowl started at $100 and went as high as $250 the closer you got to midfield.

I ended up with lower bowl endzone because their website not working properly for an hour.

BigWindyCane

I forgot to add DT Willie Moise, who was not rated and now is ranked #209.

7 of 9 Canes commits ranked in the top 250.

BigWindyCane

Aero,
a player from Dade with 12 interceptions has to be good, but Francois SPARQ score wasn’t elite, so I think that plays a role in determining his ranking.

Canes up 10-4 Top of 8th against FAU. Looks like the Canes might have bats this year! This might be a fun year! FAU is 3-0 so far this season.....they played a series vs. Cincinnati

thirstybuzzardcane

FYI....We have a huge series this weekend against the turds this weekend. All games will be televised on the SEC Network.

thirstybuzzardcane

Don't mind my grammar!!!....LOL

Herbieibis

Francios's ran a 4.64 forty recently, so as good as he is at CB in high school the dude is probably going to have to play safety unless he can knock that forty time down.

Terrance Sullivan

Canes Beat FAU 11-4. Make the Tournament and all will be well again. Go Canes!

Go Canes!!

When UM spring practice begins in a month, here’s one of many things the coaches need to determine:

Which of the Class of 2018 players are ready for significant playing time?

Cornerbacks D.J. Ivey and Al Blades Jr. and defensive tackle Nesta Silvera displayed flashes last year, and all will be needed for larger roles.

Three freshmen who redshirted last season — cornerback-turned-striker Gilbert Frierson and cornerback Nigel Bethel — and defensive tackle Jordan Miller also will get a long look.

So will Patrick Joyner Jr., who adapted adequately to his move from linebacker to defensive end and ended up redshirting.

Then there’s safety Gurvan Hall, who appeared in 10 games — mostly on special teams — and will be in the mix to compete with Bubba Bolden, Amari Carter and Robert Knowles for playing time in the wake of the departures of seniors Jaquan Johnson and Sheldrick Redwine. (Bolden isn’t yet enrolled.)

But the most intriguing of the group of second-year defensive players?

Redshirt freshman defensive end Gregory Rousseau.

He was a terror all offseason last year — collecting nine sacks in three spring scrimmages — before he sustained a fractured right ankle injury in the second game of the season, requiring season-ending surgery.

“He has a chance to be special,” defensive line coach Jess Simpson said. “But thinking about it and hoping for it is something different. We have to go do it.”

Had he not been injured, Simpson envisioned Rousseau last year playing on “the third down package for sure. When I looked at Greg, [what stood out was] his ability to gain ground on the edge and get pressure and push the pocket. His long limbs and batting balls and sacking the quarterback.”

Rousseau has a good chance to be UM’s No. 3 end, with Jon Garvin and Virginia Tech transfer Trevon Hill the likely starters. Simpson said he should be fine, health-wise, for spring ball, which begins March 19.

Silvera had 13 tackles, including 1.5 for loss, in seven games and will compete with Pat Bethel, Jon Ford and Chigozie Nnoruka for two starting defensive tackle jobs.

Silvera has “really, really done well and it was cool for him to see those old guys and the way they approached their work,” Simpson said of departing seniors Gerald Willis and Tito Odenigbo.

Miller played in only one game last season (Savannah State) and remains something of a project.

Does Simpson believe he will be able to help this season?

“I want him to be able to help us,” he said. “His body is changing. His knowledge of fundamentals and schemes have changed. Super kid, great heart, wants to do things right.”

As for the four second-year cornerbacks, all will compete with freshmen Christian Williams and Te’Cory Couch for playing time alongside Trajan Bandy.

Ivey and Blades both flashed potential last season.

“Ivey played the most snaps [of the four freshmen], Blades five snaps behind him,” cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph said.

“Al came in and learned nickel and corner, which is amazing for a freshman. I look for three things. I look for a kid that will play hard and urgent, will tackle and communicate. The minute Al and DJ started communicating well, it was up to them to know their assignments going into those weeks. They shared reps going into every week.”

What unique skills do those two corners have?


With Ivey, it’s “his length; that helps him with tackling and taking the ball away and finishing big plays and going after the ball,” Rumph said.

“Al Blades can play almost any position on the field with his physicality and leadership ability and doing what he’s taught consistently every single time. They fit perfectly what we’re doing. They’re only going to get better. They’ve learned a tremendous amount of football from [departing senior] Michael Jackson.”

As for Frierson and Bethel, “Frierson redshirted so he got some good quality work and worked on his confidence and scout team,” Rumph said. “Remember, Michael Jackson went to the scout team early in his career and came back a whole other person. Nigel Bethel the same way, got some scout team work and put on 14 pounds of muscle.”

Frierson will compete with Derrick Smith Jr. for playing time behind Romeo Finley at the striker position.

▪ Former UM coach Mark Richt will make his return to UM’s campus Saturday when he works the annual All-Pro dads event. But he told organizers that he has no intention of speaking to reporters or discussing his decision to retire.

Nike’s new slogan “Just blew it”

thirstybuzzardcane

Florida just lost their weekday games to USF and North Florida. Hopefully, we can win the series, and I think we have a pretty good chance to do so!

Florida's lost all of their starting pitching last year, they we're the catalyst of their success the few years.

LOL! That kid is going to get some kind of big endorsement deal.

I wonder if I would even play college anymore if I was Zion. You will be the number one pick.

If it's amateur it's not a job. In that case why should I show up?

Former 5-star DE Jaelan Phillips, formerly of UCLA, announces he’s transferring to #Miami.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | February 21, 2019 at 08:49 PM

For the star gazers, the Canes got another five star. The #1 overall recruit in the class of 2017, Phillips is a 6’5” 245lbs OLB/DE, and Jess Simpson will get the most out of him like Gerald Willis III. Phillips has to sit out a year.

That transfer portal has really been a lifesaver this offseason for the Canes.

TonyCane

When you count the transfers, Miami finishes(?) the 2019 class with a successful haul:

5 Stars: 1
4 Stars: 11
3 Stars: 7
2 Stars: 4
Unranked: 1

Great finish by Manny and the staff.
Year 4-5 Star Players/Rest of Class
2002: 15 / 07
2003: 13 / 11
2004: 12 / 15

Here's the same ratio look, but with overall team numbers each year:

Herbieibis

Need to be somewhere around mid 50's on the 4 star and above range. Think Bama had 68. Manny has them coming.
Phillips will be a big help and gives him a year to get past his contact concussion issues. To bad he has to cough up a year of eligibility.

thirstybuzzardcane

Can you imagine what recruiting will be like once we start winning again!

thirstybuzzardcane

Phillips is eligible to play right away! Doesn't make sense, but maybe it has to do with a medical situation?

https://twitter.com/EndoGains/status/1098789981714333696?s=19

CaneSince1982

He played in less than 4 games last year, so that counts as his year off. Making him eligible now.

Go Canes!!

I believe that ESPN report is incorrect and he'll need a waiver to play in 2019.

BigWindyCane1

It would be great if Phillips were immediately eligible to play. We will see what the official word is out of Coral Gables

CaneSince1982

Only waiver needed is if he is looking to get the year of eligibility back (last year). I believe he is. So he will file for a medical redshirt waiver. If that is approved we get 3 years of eligibility instead of the 2 he is curt coming with. Either way he is eligible to play, providing he passes all the concussion stuff.

Old Skool

Hmm no comments about Kraft. Very, very, very dumb. The guy could easily hire personal assistants for every day of the week or year. Give them staff positions (no pun intended) and no one would question it.

Old Skool

Kraft also is CEO of The Kraft Group, a holding company ... Now we know what was being held.

Old Skool

Perhaps he was looking for a way to address "deflategate'

Old Skool

Last year the New England Patriots restructured Tom Brady’s contract so it would include performance bonuses. Gotta wonder what other kind of performance bonuses Kraft has been handing out.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CaneSince1982 | February 22, 2019 at 11:48 AM

He played at UCLA and is transferring. How will he be eligible?

Go Canes!!

Last season /\/\/\

CaneSimce1982

Because he played in 4 or less games. Per NCAA rules that counts as a redshirt season.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: CaneSimce1982 | February 22, 2019 at 01:50 PM

Playing in less than four games gets him a redshirt but doesn’t exempt him from transfer rules that require him to sit a year when he changes schools.

CaneSince1982

Since you won’t believe me.

Posted by: CaneSince1982 | February 22, 2019 at 04:20 P

I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make. The Herald article says he has to sit a year.

He’s not eligible to play next season because he transferred and has to sit a year at his new school. The redshirtis irrelevant.

nemo2002

If he sits out 2019, which is most likely, how many years of eligibility will he have left to play for the Canes?
Also, if he can't play for UM until 2020, what is the probability that he leaves for the NFL after that season?
THANK YOU!

Time for another OGV -vs- GC cage match to liven this place up!

CaneSince1982

This is epic!

“So I'm at the Nike coaching clinic in Orlando tonight. (notice I said Nike)

Willie Taggart is here with his whole FSU staff. After Willie gives his clinic, the whole FSU staff does "break out sessions" where all of the position coaches go into separate rooms and give their own short clinics.

So Manny Diaz and staff show up right before the breakout session in all of their Adidas gear and start throwing a full-on frat party (in a separate room) handing out free beers to all High School coaches...DURING FSU's BREAK OUT SESSION!! lol

So instead of the high school guys attending the FSU breakout sessions, they were all heading towards the Miami Hurricanes party. (Hello, free beer!)
Manny was tossing beers around to coaches, taking pictures, choppin' it up with the high school guys, etc.

Everybody was like "this is an epic, gangster ass stunt." LOL

Manny's response...
"This is what we're trying to bring back to The U, that F-U type of swagger."

They're leaving tomorrow morning. They came all this way just to crash FSU's clinic. LOL
What an epic move. And let me tell you something, he has this place buzzing right now. High School guys from all over the state are at this clinic and they're talking about Miami's stunt tonight.”

Al Golden would have brought inspirational tomes. And dietary strategies to instruct the HS to bulk up certain players.

Randy Shannon would have brought lots of onions

Larry Coker would have led everyone in a session of, "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands!"
