Peace be with you in these difficult days.

“... If you don’t want to be for the University of Miami, go somewhere else. This is UM. This is Miami. We don’t have to beg anyone to be a Miami Hurricane. And that’s in recruiting and that’s in anything else.

“We have to start to create value to what it means to play for the Miami Hurricanes. Because right now in my mind that has been devalued. ... I want to find some guys that are all for the U. Guess why? Because that’s how Miami won in the past. And I don’t care what guys are ranked in recruiting. I don’t care what guys have done on our team. We’re going to win with guys that love the University of Miami. That has been proven over and over and over again.’’

Shaq media day

(Man I am digging Coach Feeley)


UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI
Miami LB Shaq Quarterman: ‘I’ve seen guys turn into real monsters

Can the Canes win the Coastal? Linebacker Shaq Quarterman says unequivocally “Yes.” BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
CHARLOTTE, N.C.
Miami Hurricanes linebacker Shaq Quarterman is a believer.

That’s a big part of the reason he came back for his senior year.

He wanted to play for his former defensive coordinator and new head coach Manny Diaz, he loves his teammates and he believes together they have a chance to win the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference — despite the Hurricanes finishing 7-6 and 4-4 in the Coastal last season after winning their division in 2017 and ultimately being blasted by now national champion Clemson in the ACC title game.

“I’m sure,’’ Quarterman said Thursday at the ACC Football Kickoff, when asked if the Canes can win the Coastal. “If I look at my players, my teammates, we understand that last year could have been a whole lot different...”

SAVE NOW
Quarterman, who said he’s now 6-2 and 238 pounds with 11 percent body fat, will be flanked by standout fellow seniors Mike Pinckney and Zach McCloud. Last season an All-ACC first-team star, Quarterman started all 13 games and ranked second for the Canes with 82 tackles. He had 14 tackles for loss, six sacks, an interception, two pass breakups, six quarterback hurries, a forced fumble and fumble recovery.


“First and foremost, it’s awesome for us to be able to start together,’’ Quarterman said. “It rarely happens, especially for us to grow as close as we have from day one, being thrown in that fire with the trust of my coach over there. It’s just been really great.

“Throughout every year we’ve continued to grow closer as brothers. To be able to finish off my senior year with them, it’s a testament to our brotherhood. I wouldn’t want to do it without them.”


When asked if he had a message for fans, Quarterman said he did.

“I would tell them to show up and show out. We need them. I need all the fans. They really drive us, whether they know it or not. Every disappointment they feel, we feel it too. And I just want them to understand that.

“[There] was a time where it seemed like they didn’t think we wanted to win and that hurt me to my core. It’s for the fans, you know. They pay so much money, season ticket holders and stuff like that. It’s for the fans. We work hard to win. But it’s for the city.


“We’re not as far off as people would like to believe. But, that’s fine... We just put our heads down and I believe we put in the work this off-season. We have a new strength staff who has blessed us tremendously. I’ve seen guys turn into real monsters in just a short period of time. I’m almost jealous that I won’t have another year. Then you have Diaz, who’s done everything in his power to put the right coaches in position for us to excel even more. With the defense we have coming off of last year, I’m just excited.”

Quarterman also conceded that he felt like he would be chosen higher in the NFL Draft if he returned in 2019.

“Talking with Coach Diaz,’’ he said, “even Coach [Mark] Richt at that time, it came down to what I honestly felt I was worth. A lot of guys come out their junior year. It’s becoming more of a fashion to do that. But I don’t think they understand the long-term results of what that does.

“A lot of guys, two out of three juniors that come out, don’t get drafted. The one that does, who’s to say he goes in the first round? So I didn’t see the reason in leaving a year early, and leaving so much on the table.

“The fact that I get to graduate this year, the fact that I get to do it with my guys that I came in with — I have my once defensive coordinator [as] my head coach— it’s almost like the stars have aligned for me. I think that’s a tremendous blessing.

More Manny Media

Manny Diaz on who ‘can’t live without’ being the Miami QB — and ‘puffy-eyed’ players
BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
JULY 18, 2019 09:34 AM

Yes, there will be a little something (or not so little something, knowing University of Miami football coach Manny Diaz) for the offense when it scores touchdowns in 2019. (Keep reading for that info.)

No, we still don’t know who the starting quarterback is, but we got an update from the coach.

Fall camp begins a week from Friday and Diaz had his first interview at the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Kickoff early Thursday before he was to officially meet the media later Thursday — and it was on the radio with 560 WQAM host Joe Rose and “voice of the Hurricanes” Joe Zagacki.

TOP ARTICLES

Here’s some of what Diaz touched on Thursday in that 16 1/2-minute radio interview:

▪ On the quarterback competition between N’Kosi Perry, Jarren Williams and Tate Martell: Rose asked, “How do you get three guys in a wide-open competition going into summer camp enough snaps to clearly find out who’s your quarterback for the [Aug. 24] opener against Florida?”


Diaz: “We’re going to gear some things in the way we practice the first two weeks to make sure everybody gets enough at-bats.” For example, explained Diaz, there may be two seven-on-seven drills going on at one time or quarterbacks doing drills at the same time at different parts of the fields.

UNIVERSITY-OF-MIAMI
Mark Richt draws crowd at ACC Football Kickoff, has message for Miami Hurricanes fans
JULY 17, 2019 5:30 PM
“Everybody on the football field understands, coaches, players people who fill the water bottles, everybody understands that we have to find a quarterback in the first two weeks. The good news is we think all three guys came out of spring as a possible contender for the job. Now we really want to find out who made that extra push in the summertime. I’m hoping that will be obvious when we return.


“It’s going to be the guy that has to have the job. You have to be compelled to be the quarterback at the University of Miami. You can’t live without it. The guy that can’t live without being the quarterback will probably end up being our quarterback.”

▪ Are all the transfers on campus? Diaz: “Not yet. We’re still waiting on a couple of guys who are still clearing hurdles. ... They’ll be on the roster. [Safety] Bubba Bolden and [defensive lineman] Jaelan Phillips will not be on campus but that should be soon [after the others report a week from today]. Pretty sure the rest of the crew should be up and ready to go.’’

▪ Biggest concerns besides quarterback: “Got to get continuity in our offense line. We’ve got more than five that can go in and help us in a game.” Diaz said the Canes still have to figure out the “final five.’’

He also mentioned defensive backs in that category.

▪ Will there be a turnover chain for the offense, as Diaz has more than hinted at several times? “Those guys looked at me with these little puffy eyes like, ‘Coach, you’re our coach now, too.’... I’m not saying it’s going to be a chain, but here’s what I know. In 2016 we didn’t force enough turnovers, right? So, we’re like ‘Let’s get a chain.’


“Then in 2017 we led the nation in turnovers. It would be fun to lead the nation in touchdowns, right? That would be pretty cool. Hell, if we could finish second that would be cool. There may be something for the offense and then of course we’ll always have a different chain for the defense.

“You’ve gotta come to Orlando to find out.”

Also: Athletic director Blake James spoke on WQAM before Diaz and said there are currently no plans for a series with UCF, because if UM were to schedule one, the Canes would want a “two-for-one situation,’’ James said, meaning two games at UM and one at UCF. The Knights would rather have a series with one game at home and one game at UM

Go Canes!!

THIS ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFULWORDS I'VE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

BigWindyCane1

I like everything I am reading about CMD.

The Canes defense looks really good in spring practice. The players are putting in the work, and they certainly look the part. I think the Canes' defensive line could be the best in the ACC. There might be 3-4 All ACC performers on the DL.

Shaq and Pinckney should also be All ACC, and I expect our striker, Romeo Finley, to make his mark.

I would not be surprised if the defense is actually better this season.

thirstybuzzardcane

Anyone else think we should redshirt McCleod? I know with that striker position he doesn't get the playing time like he wants. It would help us and better his chances to get drafted if he redshirted!

I agree BigWindy... My biggest concern on D is replacing Willis in the middle, otherwise, we should be very athletic and disruptive.
I just hope our O starts to click. I’m happy with what I’m hearing about the coaching so far, but I t ALL starts with the O-line. (See Wisconsin.) Also, I’m not so sure I’m on board with an Offensive “chain.”

Let’s Go CANES!

Yea the more you mess with an original idea the more you dilute what made it unique. Today's kids thrive on social media gimmicks so I understand Manny's idea.
I couldn't picture Devin Hester needing a necklace to inspire him.

They should just forego the pre-game meal, and have some big ole turkey drumsticks BBQing and let them take a few big chomps when they score! That would get ME motivated! LOL

Posted by: roachcane77 | July 19, 2019 at 08:03 PM

I thought the Canes would miss Willis, too, but the new DTs like Ford, Miller and Silvera, are bigger and more athletic. No one is talking about Ford, but he could be All ACC. He may not have the same stats as Willis, but from a physical standpoint, Ford is much bigger than Willis and he looks like an NFL DT. Forget what these players are listed at, look at them standing on the field and make your own judgements.

With the addition of Trevon Hill and the maturity of Garvin, Patchan, Rousseau and Harvey, the Canes are also much bigger, athletic, experienced and deeper at DEs, and I am going out on a limb to predict that the Canes will have the best DL in the ACC. I know it’s hard to believe, but IMHO, the Canes DL will draw more double teams this year and free up the LBs and safeties to come up and make plays. Teams will hate facing the Canes DL this season for fear of being physically beaten up and embarrassed

A different decade, a different time. Same old sockpuppet GD show on the blob today as back then.

The more things change the more they stay the same, except for Harris' spot in the record books, that eventually got worse thanks to an even shittier quitter. But Ken Dorsey continually has them all still beat to this very day so it evens out!

"We want something for scoring touchdowns," whines the offense.

Try this thing on for sized called, "wins," morons, something the football team isn't accustomed to enough for a generation now to be asking for a participation prize in doing what you were recruited to do in the first place while getting your free ride with benefits. Collect enough in one season and you get this thing called a, "championship." What a concept!

CMD

“I think he’s improving. I do. But I think he’s still learning. Quarterbacks don’t end up on lists (of players who get in trouble), and that’s just the way it should be.

Quarterbacks should not be high-maintenance guys off the field. If anything, they should be the opposite. They should be the most low-maintenance part of your football team.

Growing into what it means to be the quarterback at the University of Miami is what they’re all really learning to be, to be perfectly honest with you. I would say N’Kosi, like all of them, is better. But I would not say that he’s figured it all out and is straight A’s across the board.”

solarcane

Windy, good call

TonyCane

There’s part of me that wants an Iron Throne...mounted atop a massive marble pedestal...as the TD celebration. Overlay it gold, and set it off of the 50 yard line. But don’t use it for every TD. For special occasions.

Then there’s the more realistic side of me that says the TD and eventual victory are more than enough.

“Tate Martell, in addition to what he can do on the field with his athleticism and his ability to to make plays with his arm and his feet, we looked at Tate as a gym rat, he’s an excellent X’s and O’s guy, he’s a guy that loves the game and he’s always in his playbook.

We thought he would help change the culture in our quarterback room.

On January 1st we weren’t sure we had a quarterback on our campus we thought we had talented guys like N’Kosi Perry and Jarren Williams were very talented but we just felt like that room lacked the maturity level to really lead a program like the University of Miami.”

Martell was slow to adapt to learning Enos’ offense. He struggled under center this spring and was erratic throwing the football. When Enos put Martell in the shotgun and about four to five weeks into spring practice things finally clicked. Diaz spoke to Manny Navarro of The Athletic about Martell’s progression this spring.

“For Tate, it was Day 13…Tate came out Day 13 and 15 and just was dealing and walked off the field feeling very confident about himself. It kind of changed his demeanor. He went to Orlando (for the spring game) and, in my opinion, played very well.”

The biggest impact for the Miami Hurricanes in the passing game is not from Perry, Martell or redshirt freshman Jarren Williams. Diaz expects Enos knowledge and skill set working with QBs to be the biggest impact on how the Miami Hurricanes throw the football in 2019.

"Cam’Ron Harris. Under a new regimen led by director of strength and conditioning David Feeley, Harris has packed on 15 pounds of muscle and dropped his fat percentage from 10% to 6.8% this past spring. That’s great news for a young back who is in line to see a significant uptick in production in 2019"

6.8%... Isn’t that a little high for you 86?
I thought you were getting into TOP shape this year! (SLACKER!)

ESPN all pro Canes are into the finals. One look at the defense and it should be a wrap. Jerome Brown, Russell Maryland and Cortez Kennedy weren't even on the team.

If you are talking about percent of time Soup will drive straight past a Golden Corral I'd say that's about right.

Go Canes!!

If not for two epic collapses by Kirby Smart and Georgia Saban would have no titles since 2011.

They also won one of them (2017) by getting into the playoff as a #4 seed, an advantage Miami never had but obviously would have benefited from during it's run.

Go,
the thing is they got there because they stayed close, and we were never close enough for luck, good fortune,or someone's epic collapse to make any difference.

I was watching a show from Atlanta about the best video gamers in the world,
One 90 pound bespectacled kid was asked how he became one of the top 10 players in the universe.

He said it was because he gets up and GRINDS all day on the top games.

I would have loved to see Shaq walk into the TV scene covered in sweat with a little blood dripping from his nose, and see him take an Xbox and break it over the kids skull.

I would know nothing of LSU if not for the football team

I am going to make a prediction. Canes will win the Nat'l Championship this year.

86.6% or 68.6% body fat is my normal.

To drop to 8.6% or 6.8% would take a major effort. In the interim I will drink beer and hold the bacon and cheese. I am going to lay down now.

roachcane77

Yes. That’s exhausting just THINKING about it...

Manny says he is inviting former players to stand on the sideline with the current players more than ever this season.

Cane Stolen Valor

WALSH "Hey Ken isn't that guy over there wearing a Cane quarterback jersey?"

DORSEY "WTF!!... Hey Dude, you were a qb at Miami?"

ROSIER "Hell yeah bro!"

DORSEY "I see, I see, what years you play my man?"

ROSIER "Ummm, Yeah I played for Coach Erickson, yeah that's the ticket Coach Erickson."

DORSEY So you played for Coach Erickson, what years was that?"

ROSIER " Uhhhh... The 90s man, freakin righteous man, I won the Heisman, won about 30 games in a row.

DORSEY " Man come on, did you ever hear of Gino Torreta?"

ROSIER " You mean when you can't help cursing?"

DORSEY "Look man, you need to go home and take that jersey off,I have friends that lost to Penn State in that uniform for Christ's sake."

ROSIER " why the disrespect bro? You know it's a Cane's thang!...all over the U

DORSEY " Its all about The U, you dumb fk"

That’s a bold prediction. Of course, I hope you are right.

For Soup, clipping his toenails is aerobic exercise.

I don't think Harris will be underrated for long. I will be very surprised if Harris does not become a very good NFL RB -- Lingard too.

Linebacker De'Andre Wilder is no longer on the Miami Hurricanes after missing the 2018 season with a neck injury the school confirmed on Thursday evening.

Rats! Best of luck to De'Andre in the future!

Don't you say this. You better know Clemson is returning a team equivalent to the 2001 Hurricanes (with loads of sarcasm).

Tre Hill is in.
