I'm going to be curious to see how Harris looks, and how the offense looks in general.

I know, they have alot of talent at the WR spot. I personally like Jacory but want to see how he adapts to a fulltime starter and to the pro style offense

The only practice open to the public is on March 12th at 6:30PM at Traz Powell Stadium. After that the only thing available to the public is the Spring Game on March 28th. It looks like the Spring Game will begin at either 9:00AM or 10:00AM. I know it will be a morning game because the baseball team is in town that weekend playing Georgia Tech and those are late afternoon games. The University won't schedule those to conflict. The Spring Game is taking place at Lockhart Stadium. After the Spring Game, I believe 790 The Ticket is having a a party with all kinds of giveaways, prizes and I believe that some former 'Canes will be on hand as well. I don't have any actual names but I can pretty much guarantee that Lamar Thomas will be lurking around that day.

I'm not sure where the party will be at. 790 has tried to keep it under wraps but the word got leaked out lol. One of my boys is close with Lamar Thomas so...lol. 790 couldn't keep it too quiet. My feeling is that it will be on the Lockhart grounds immediately following the Spring Game but nothing is set in stone just yet I don't think. I'll see what I can dig up about this but 790 has to make an announcement about this soon I would think.

Not a problem at all. By the way, I'm hearing that Sam Shields is going to switch from #83 to #9.

The dreaded curse of Lance Leggett...

I heard Taylor Cook and Travis Benjamin were seen on the quad over the weekend tossing long balls.

I think Cook is a better fit for Whipple's offense than Harris is.

Taylor Cook has potential...why would he change his number from 83 to 9, is he still in Randys dog house?

CedarPhin
02-24-2009, 07:39 PM
I know he's switching to DB, so maybe that's it.

Dolfan3773
02-24-2009, 07:46 PM
Yeah that makes sense now, pretty ugly to see a DB with 83 lol

I see Travis Benjamin changed his number from 80 to 3?

Yeah, I saw that too.

Kendal Thompkins is moving from #38 to #83. It's not listed on that roster though. Thompkins made a late change.

Coach Shannon is smart moving Sam Shields to corner. Sam had no future being an NFL wide receiver. He would ended up like a few other Miami wideouts who never panned out ex. Magic Benton

Don't forget Lance Leggett/Ryan Moore as of late too. All 3 had great freshman seasons and then fell off in the coming years.

Ugh. I seriously get dizzy at the mention of Lance leggett. That guy had trouble catching the team bus.

CedarPhin

He completely regressed after his Frosh year. Just like Ryan Moore, just like Sam Shields.

I wasn't able to get online much last night. I've been suffering with some gay wisdom teeth. Ugh. Anyway, now that all of that is over and I feel like a million untaxed dollars, I heard that gome guy by the name of Ed Reed made an appearance at practice yesterday. We definitely need more of that. The former 'Canes haven't really done a good job of showing up at practice like they used to. They still come back during the summer to lift weights with the kids, etc. But when you have a guy like Ed Reed watching you on the practice field, guys seem more eager to show something. Especially guys like Vaughn Telemaque who is trying to crack the two-deep roster. Hopefully Ed had a word or two with Vaughn because Vaughn is sick. Him and CJ Holton have drawn early comparisons to Ed Reed and Sean Taylor. However, no one will ever live up to those two guys.
