Miami barely misses making the USA Today preseason poll, 2nd unranked behind Kansas State
Just an FYI...
Shane Larkin will be having a free autograph session (one item per person) at allCanes on Saturday Aug. 24th. 2-3 pm.
**** yeah!!! Canes football on Friday night!!!!!!!
will this be televised nationally?
The Spring game is on at 6:30 and the game vs FAU is on at 8pm. I hope it's a good game with no injuries. I want everybody in top shape for next week's game against UF. I hope they show some of the Howard Schnellenberger and '83 National Championship team commemoration tonight on tv.
2 dropped tds by the true freshman Coley. Very vanilla offense. Looks like they don't want to show too much to UF.

Considering we gave up 400 yards to Bethune Cookman in the opener last year, I was excited to see improvement in the defense. We actually generated a pass rush and most importantly, no bend dont break CBs playing 10 yards off the WR playcalling. We were aggressive. Played a lot of press man. A lot of 3-4 looks as well, especially on running situations. Tracy Howard and Kacy Rodgers really impressed me. Alex Figueroa is good.
Offensively, looked pretty obvious to me we were holding back for the UF game next week. Having a new OC, it does help going into a game where they have no film on how much the offense has changed from a coaching standpoint from last year. Duke was the beast we all know he is. Morris looked terrible. No idea what was going on there. FAU took away the deep ball. Morris was out of sync all game. It's going to be a long game if he plays like that next week. Sucks to see Stacy Coley drop 2 TD passes. He's a true freshman playing his first game, so I'll just chalk it up first game jitters for now. He's going to be a stud for us either way. As will Herb Waters. My 2 favorite WR's on the team. The Scott injury sucks. Looks pretty serious. Like a torn labrum or something. Luckily we're pretty deep at WR.
Offensive Line was a huge disappointment. For what is supposedly the best unit on the team, they looked like ****. I said it last year and I'll say it this year, they're overrated. Protecting the QB, they might be the best in the nation. But run blocking has left a lot to be desired for too long. Especially short yardage situations. Still a really good unit, but not the dominant force some people have made them out to be. Not until they can generate a push on these short yardage situations.
