For hating a$$ UMike! 😂😂😂
⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

Because UM has two other talented quarterbacks on the roster (N’Kosi Perry and Tate Martell), will Jarren Williams have a short leash as the starter?

Absolutely not, offensive coordinator Dan Enos insists. And Enos said that message has been conveyed to Williams.

“He’s our starter; I don’t think there’s a short window,” Enos said. “That’s a bad way to go into a relationship [saying], ‘You’re the starter until you do that [mess up].’ Jarren has earned the job and has our full support. By no means do we think he’s going to play perfectly. He’s not going to.

“But the guy isn’t going to play well if he’s looking over his shoulder all the time. We don’t want him to do that. We’ve told him he doesn’t have to do that. We’re going to ride him and give him all the support we can to help so he can be successful.

“He’s an excellent passer, very accurate, good touch, great arm strength, very good mobility. I underrated his ability to move and extend plays. He’s a smart guy. He’s going to continue to get better. I think he has a very high ceiling. He’s tough and competitive and has earned the respect of his teammates.”

Willie... when did I ever hate on Williams? A day before Williams was named started I posted I believe whoever was picked would be on a short leash. That thought had nothing to do or against Williams.

They say all sorts of ridiculous sheets. How Derrick Smith was to be a starter. How Zion is 250lbs. How Nesta was to be a starter. How they think their WO r better than us & their TEs too. Most of them r oblivious to the fact that we have one of the best LBaking group in the nation. They don’t know that our RBs r all 4 stars, plus 1 five star. They say they r better than us, head to toe!
It’s pure comedy.

Mephistopheles

Hey folks, its been a while but a wounded Meffy is just checking in. Meffy's achilles went on strike, so we had to send in reinforcements to get it back to work. So far, so good, but dang this thing hurts.

For what its worth I liked the Williams selection if for no other reason that this was the toughest choice for the coaches to make. N'Kosi was the safe choice; Martel maybe the sexy/popular choice. Clearly Williams made a strong case for himself.

The question now is, did he win the job, or did the other 2 lose it. Tune in to find out.

I also liked the timing, and the definitive statements by coaches. And the initial comments by Martel hanging tough. It never hurts to have a competent back-up, and of course, Martel may prove to be the right choice after all. I thought we saw what N'Kosi had last year, and I wasn't excited to see more.

If this D takes the next step, and some sorely missing plays get made in the kicking game, (remember the days teams feared kicking to the U) maybe we'll have some fun this season.

I'm gutted I'll miss the gator game right here in my back yard-hopefully their play will enhance my coalescence. Take care my friends. Let me hear you from my couch.

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooo C-A-N-E-S CANES!!!

With Bethel and Smith in the "transfer portal"... should we have any worry about depth at corner and safety? Thoughts?

Robert Smith was playing well in Fall camp, and frankly, I don’t think Amari Carter outplayed him this Fall. After a slow start to his college career, Smith played like a starter this Fall. I have to give him credit. I think he should have stayed, but I understand that he might have better options elsewhere and I wish him the best.

Nigel Bethel has great speed, but he hasn’t put it together on the football field yet. Bethel has the raw skills and probably can eventually develop into a very good CB, but right now Bethel is raw, lacks certain fundamentals and CB instincts and will probably play behind Couch and Williams had he stayed.

Killer article in Jarren out performing Trevor Lawrence at the opening,
This Brevin Jordan dude might be the best recruiter on Miami.

A look back at The Opening 2017, when ‘Jarren put on a better show than’ Trevor Lawrence | Miami Herald

UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI
A look back at The Opening 2017, when ‘Jarren put on a better show than’ Trevor Lawrence
BY DAVID WILSON

Each of the six future Miami Hurricane skill players to suit up for Savage Pro at The Opening finals in 2017 knew what to expect from one of their quarterbacks. Trevor Lawrence was considered one of the best quarterback prospects of all time, a consensus five-star player and no-doubt future star for the Clemson Tigers.

Lorenzo Lingard, Cam’Ron Harris, Mark Pope, Brian Hightower, Brevin Jordan and Will Mallory didn’t know as much about the other quarterback on the roster: Jarren Williams, a four-star prospect committed to the Kentucky Wildcats.”

“I didn’t really know a whole lot about him,” Mallory said Tuesday

A look back at The Opening 2017, when ‘Jarren put
on a better show than’ Trevor Lawrence

“I was like, Who’s this guy?” Jordan said Tuesday. “Kentucky?”

SAVE NOW
The six Miami-committed prospects only needed to see one play by the quarterback to have faith in Williams. On the first play of Savage Pro’s first game, Jordan ran a seam route through the middle of the opponent’s defense and Williams fired the star tight end a perfectly placed pass.


Jordan pulled in the catch with plenty of room to run. He darted to the end zone for one of the first touchdowns in Beaverton, Oregon.

“It was very exciting,” Harris said Tuesday. “You were like, ‘Man, this could happen. This might be it.’ ”

It seemed unlikely at the time, but the 7-on-7 tournament at the Nike World Headquarters wound up being a preview of the potential future of the Hurricanes’ offense. Williams eventually decommitted from the Wildcats in the fall and then committed to Miami a little while later.

On Aug. 24, Williams will make his first college start when the Hurricanes open the 2019 season against the Florida Gators in Orlando, and Harris, Lingard, Hightower, Pope, Jordan and Mallory will all potentially line up around him, just like they did more than two years ago.

“It was a fun experience. We all was like, ‘Who is this guy?’ ” Hightower said Tuesday. “We all were like, ‘We need to get him, this kid from The Opening that we played with.’ Now this is where we’re at.”

Harris remembered a particularly strong connection between Hightower and Williams, with the quarterback taking advantage of the wide receiver’s length in jump-ball situations. Lingard remembered one comeback Williams orchestrated and some of Williams’ savvy moving around the pocket.

The one throw the running back thinks of came in a goal-line situation. Williams rolled to his left after the snap, and Lingard turned around and followed the quarterback’s lead. Lingard slid to the left, too, and Williams zipped a sidearm throw through a window for a touchdown. The play was ruled a sack, but it was just one example of the arm talent which blew away Lingard.

“I was like, ‘Man, this guy’s got a good arm,’ ” Lingard said Tuesday. “We were all talking about playing with each other.”

Said Harris: “All the hype was on Trevor because he was a five-star, big-time recruit and great quarterback, and when Jarren got in, he met his progression.

The Williams-led comeback is still the first thing Lingard thinks about from The Opening, though. Although he can’t remember the team the victory came against, Lingard remembers the circumstances: Lawrence threw a couple of picks as Savage Pro fell behind early. Quarterbacks often rotate in 7-on-7 tournaments, so Williams came in and orchestrated a come-from-behind victory.

Williams started instead of Lawrence at times in Oregon and, according to 247Sports.com, he finished the three-day tournament with a better completion percentage than the Clemson star, fewer interceptions and more touchdown drives led.

“I’m not trying to sound biased or nothing, but Jarren put on a better show than Trevor,” Jordan said, “so that’s when we knew he was elite.”

After the tournament finished, Jordan kept in touch with Williams. Those two and Hightower, a California native, weren’t as close with the rest of the Florida-based Hurricane commits, at the time, so they all spent the bulk of their time with each other in Beaverton. Even now in Coral Gables, Jordan said the group he spends most of his time with includes Williams, Hightower and Mallory.

It was an easy choice, then, for Jordan when quarterback Artur Sitkowski flipped his commitment from Miami to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and former coach Mark Richt asked the receiver who he thought the Hurricanes should reach out to.

“They were like, ‘Who’s somebody? We need a quarterback for this class,’ ” Jordan said. “I said, ‘Jarren Williams.’ That was the first guy I said: ‘Jarren Williams,’ and we got him.”

Williams was still committed to Kentucky when he came down to South Florida for his official visit in 2017. He watched the Hurricanes pummel the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Miami Gardens for the signature win of Richt’s tenure, and Williams sat beside him the entire game at Hard Rock Stadium.

At the end of the visit, Williams told Richt he was planning to sign with the Hurricanes.

“Being around those guys, just seeing the level of talent that I could have around me, throwing to, I’m like, ‘Man,’ ” Williams said Tuesday. “We all kind of clicked. We all have that personality where we just kind of meshed. It was really great getting to know and I’m like, I want to play with these guys, and I saw something in them that was big time.”

herbieibis

Depth is an issue at CB and has been before Bethel quit. One of Richt's boyz. I don't see how any team will ever be able to stay or get near the 85 player limit with the transfer portal dangling in front of them. Good option but is it being abused? I know Bethel didn't think he was going to start. What, we have maybe 5 Cbs now!
Even though most slots filled in the 2020 class CB and LB aside from OT's are our biggest needs.

This article says it all. I had an opportunity to see Ford in the spring, and I posted back then that I thought he could be a dominant force and that the Hurricanes DL might be a strength of the team. Ford’s measurables are legitimate. Ford and the rest of this Canes DL definitely looks the part. Ford looks more impressive than any of Clemson’s DLs from last season. It appears others are starting to see it.

Of course, it all boils down to how they play in games. Ford will have his chance to show the world what he can do. Hopefully, he plays like he has practiced all Spring and Fall. Ford looks like a high draft pick.

Roster update time - we now stand at 75 scholarship players entering the season. Composition:

5 Stars: 3
4 Stars: 33
3 Stars: 30
2 Stars: 5
Unranked: 4

The total roster levels are the lowest since 2014, and are being driven by exceptionally high attrition that has been seen this year.

Here's a list of the percentage of players from each class who attrited out within two years:

2010 Class: 34% (10 players)
2011 Class: 37% (7 players)
2012 Class: 41% (14 players)
2013 Class: 24% (5 players)
2014 Class: 28% (8 players)
2015 Class: 32% (8 players)
2016 Class: 38% (8 players)
2017 Class: 20% (5 players)
2018 Class: 24% (6 players)

And overall, here's how many players overall left the U each season via graduation, early departure for the NFL, ect.

2011: 22
2012: 31
2013: 25
2014: 26
2015: 16
2016: 27
2017: 25
2018: 21
2019: 31

Narrowing down to the last two seasons, 52 players have departed Miami. Against that, we have brought in 50 scholarship players. (excluding Marquez Ezzard, Tito Odenigbo, Venzell Boulware, and Asa Martin)
