Miami has added another key piece to its Top 10-ranked recruiting class.

Palm Bay Bayside Top247 athlete Chase Smith (6’3 190) told 247Sports and InsideTheU on Thursday that he has given a verbal commitment to the Hurricanes.

"I'm extremely excited" Smith said over the phone. "It's just a place that I'm very familiar with. My dad went there, my mom went there and my brother went there. It's not too far so I feel real comfortable and like I'm going to fit in there."

Just curious- who’s going to try to go to the game?

Posted by: AeroCane | August 25, 2020 at 04:10 PM

I thought about it, since I was being stubborn and not giving up my season tickets after last season.

But I’ve decided to roll mine over to next year as the chances of me being in the top 13,000 for first choice is very slim.

Been working on the homestead and yard so I will just record them and watch at my convenience.

Any specific concerns about the ultra high COVID rate at UAB presently on whether the 9/10 game happens?

Prayers to all on the LA/TX border.

No!

Employees generate me the money but I borrow the funds, manage the funds, take the risks etc
And guess what, ‘you’ may be good but there are many more ‘good’ ones ready to take your job if you’re not happy!

Taking the average F.B.S. salary of $2.7 million, the player share would be $31,765.

So now take your company's profits, and those in your industry, and divide that like you just did and pay your employees the same amount. Do you?

Let's say you company makes $50 million dollars and you have 30 employees. Do you take that $50 million and divide it evenly? I bet you don't!

Answer me with a YES or NO!

I would go because I am not scared of the C-19. But I am no longer buying tickets until I see change happen and success. This is one more year for HOPE!

Interesting opinion piece on college football by the author of Friday Night Lights

Here's a couple of snippets from the article

The National College Players Association and Drexel University’s sport management department did a study showing that major college football and basketball players generated as much as $1.5 million each beyond the value of their scholarship

A simpler and quicker method would be to tie annual player compensation in the Football Bowl Subdivision schools to the salary of the head coach. As an example, let’s use Mr. Swinney’s $9.3 million a year at Clemson. Divide that by the number of players on scholarship, limited to 85 by the N.C.A.A., and you come up with an individual share of $109,412. Taking the average F.B.S. salary of $2.7 million, the player share would be $31,765.

“Miami Athletics, in conjunction with Hard Rock Stadium, the Miami Dolphins and local and state government officials, today announced its stadium capacity and safety protocol plan for the 2020 Hurricanes football home opener," the school wrote in a release. "A maximum of 13,000 fans will be allowed to attend the home opener on Thursday, September 10, at Hard Rock Stadium against UAB. Kickoff time will be announced at a later date."

In theory, we'll see how it plays out in actual practice instead though, King's mobility should alleviate some of those problems along the line, turning potential sacks from last year into short rushing gainer attempts instead.

Wouldn't expect King having to scramble every other pass attempt to stay on the field too well though as a player or offense as a whole . . .

AeroCane

Also, Ford is really stepping up at DT
If nesta plays up to his potential, our DT’s should be good

AeroCane

LT is still a weak spot - we face a lot of good DE’s this season so we better game plan accordingly and King better be at the top of his game (getting passes out quick and avoiding the rush)
Roche and Phillips are the real deal but IMO, we will still miss Rousseau (Wish he stayed)
We need Brevin to stay healthy this year / him and Mallory are an awesome combo

AeroCane

It appears no injuries. DL showed up!

NO INJURIES!

💯💯💯🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

AeroCane

Second scrimmage later
Let’s hope the DT’s stand up to the run
Let’s hope Knighton and Chaney continue doing great
I’m not concerned with King - but let’s hope he keeps working on his timing with the receivers (plus Mallory and Jordan)
NO INJURIES!

AeroCane

Thanks T
Countdowns to good things are always fun!

AeroCane I have mostly been posting on Facebook Page but we are 19 days until Showtime!

Harry Miller

Herb I think you are spot on, if we can stop the other team we will be in good shape. I believe we will score a lot.

Harry Miller

College Football live on teams to watch Boston College. Pitt and Miami. Lashlee and D'Erick King to cause a lot of problems for defenses.

HerbieIbis

The D Line, is The Herb's concern. Can they consistently stop the run. Can the D Tackles push the pocket into the Qb. No pressure from the interior CB's will get ate up.
Blades and Ivey are good CB's, not great, Yet!

86Cane

1. I always thought Shaq was a great cane but average LB (slow);

2. My concern is coaching on the D; can Blake call the right plays at the right time etc and stop someone on 3rd or 4th down when it counts!

3.If yes, we should be really good this year!

Posted by: AeroCane | August 21, 2020 at 08:24 AM

1. Yes I agree, Great Cane and solid against the run but a liability in pass coverage.

2. I share this concern.

3. IF is a small word with a BIG meaning!

Anyone think the Pac 12 and the Big 10 will regret not attempting to play this fall???

Posted by: raizecane | August 20, 2020 at 10:53 PM

I think people within the Big 10 regret it. Both conferences regret the loss of money.

The question is when will both schools truly resume play. Will it be the spring? Will it be the fall of 2021? Will it be the fall of 2022? And how many of these schools will be able to keep their football programs going without TV or ticket revenue in the latter scenario. It's possible that you may end up with a single conference when what's left of the Big 10 and PAC-12 resume play. The Power 5 becomes The Power 4.

AeroCane

Terrance - what’s the countdown?
I thought you were going to give us these daily! I was excited!
I am definitely buying into the offense big time; On D, I think our LB’s and safety’s will be better than last year (gurvan, with a year of experience and weight training under his belt and Bolden back; I always thought Shaq was a great cane but average LB (slow)); my concern is coaching on the D; can Blake call the right plays at the right time etc and stop someone on 3rd or 4th down when it counts! If yes, we should be really good this year! (Assuming no outbreaks, delaying or canceling games ie MLB)

Obvious what and from which direction the writing slant of this would take immediately upon seeing the headline, too bad the extremely frustrated pac12 blogger forgot Miami was never a traditional power so they don't deserve to cash the paycheck with the picture of Micky Mouse on it this time until they do better. Also it is a half day away one way from the beach in Los Angeles traffic but why let access stand in your way when a quip has to be made in one sentence right? :

USC

About me: Frustrated traditional power, enjoy living by the beach and talking about the good ol' days (that weren't that long ago).

Matchmakers' pick: Miami

Why you'll hit it off: USC fans have been feeling sorry for themselves lately, and what could serve as a better reality check than cheering for Miami for a season? Call it a lesson in "it could be worse."'

Florida State will allow tailgating at the Seminoles’ home games this year under specific guidelines.

Parking lots will open three hours before kickoff. Patrons must tailgate at their own spaces, and everyone should maintain the 6-foot social distancing standard between families and between tailgating areas. Face coverings are also encouraged while walking through parking lots and socializing.

"OGV...just curious, no explanation needed, but ...

Posted by: 58 Straight | August 18, 2020 at 10:08 PM"

Since this will be the sixth one I'm eligible to vote in but also the one I'm most undecided at this late stage of the process, I'll explain anyway; if the election was today I'd say I'm undecided between those two choices and would probably just vote my registered Green party by mail and call it a day. Since I have major doubts either of the main candidates will actually be able to physically finish their term through 2025 I'm probably going to wait until the VP debates at least to make up my mind this time. Also that gives both of them plenty of time to say or do something completely moronic enough to turn me off them for good. Biden, in retrospect, screwed up not running when he was mourning his son Beau in 2016 and now he might be too far gone to effectively operate as a political figurehead, Trump could have Melania revealed as a spy for the Russians at this point and I wouldn't even be shocked, he's literally occupying what Bill 'Sports Guy' Simmons refers to as the "Mike Tyson zone" with me where you can reasonably believe any crazy made up story about him now due to past weirdness not being out of line with complete fiction going forward. Great spot to be in for entertainers, not so great real estate to occupy in a world leader.

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled sports blob; Fake Lames should be fired and left on the regional airport tarmac in Clemson, South Carolina.

Apparently it's a chronic, lingering issue. Must be a shoulder. U know everything is top secret.

Herb
I read that / sort of wierd - is it surgery, etc
Got to be something fairly serious to miss the entire year
Personally, I thought he was going to be a strong ST guy and back up safety this year. Too bad and hope it’s not going to ‘linger’ more than this season

The Herb

Avante William's is done for the year. Some kind of lingering issues.

"I would call him the "King of Spring" but that too has passed. Maybe he can "Ball In The Fall"?

Posted by: 58 Straight | August 17, 2020 at 10:17 PM"

Having watched enough Houston games in 2018, he can actually play the sport, unlike Turf Face. Yes, he's way too slight a build to stay healthy possibly so he'll need to slide more in the ACC than AAC play on rushes but keep him healthy and they can stay in the mix with UNC to try and catch Clemson and Notre Dame this year for a top two regular season finish with him lining them up and making a read at the line.

AeroCane

This is huge imo

According to defensive coordinator Blake Baker, Bolden is fully healthy—and after a year of playing in Miami’s system, he’s also much more comfortable than he was a year at this time.

"He's 100 percent healthy and he's definitely more comfortable and you can see him growing more confident every day,” Baker said of Bolden.

AeroCane

58
He’s the real deal and so is Lashee, Likens and Garvin
I’m more concerned with Blake and the D - can he call a play and stop anybody (when it counts) on 3 or 4th down? If he can (cause I think our LB’s and safety’s will be better than last year) we can have a great year!
Coming from me those be words of wisdom! Lol
