Eye of the Hurricane’s Top 25 Countdown: #3 Lamar Miller, #2 Marcus Forston

316 comments

#3 Lamar Miller:  Just one season into his career as a RB with the ‘Canes, Lamar Miller is already a fan-favorite.

Why He Appears Here: After redshirting in 2009, Miller played in 11 games in 2010, starting against Maryland.  He led team with six rushing touchdowns, running 108 times for 646 yards, second most on the team.  Miller’s 6.0 yards per carry average was the highest among rushers (with at least 10 carries).  Miller ran for 163 yards against Virginia Tech, a season-high for the team, and also ran for over 100 yards against Maryland. He was twice named ACC Rookie of the Week following the Florida A&M game and the Virginia Tech Game. After rushing for 125 yards and a touchdown against Maryland, was named the Rivals.com National Rookie of the Week.  Miller’s 58.7 yards per game ranked eighth in the ACC.  Indeed, Miller stepped his game up for conference games, rushing for 86.8 yards per ACC contest, third best in the league.

2011 Outlook:  With what is purportedly going to be a run-heavy offense under Fisch, Miller will be the DASH to Mike James’ SMASH.  With the support of a world-class offensive line, these two should be able to decimate many opponents with the run and produce the ‘Canes first 1,000 rushers since, um, my senior year of undergrad when my classmate Willis McGahee did it.  Sigh. Memories.

#2 Marcus Forston: ‘Canes fans are unspeakably happy to have this beast of a DT back after an injury sidelined him in the spring.  Forston is not only the top DT for the ‘Canes, but ranks up there with the best in the nation.

Why He Appears Here: As a freshman in 2008, Forston played in 12 games and made first career start at Floriduh.  He was named first-team freshman All-American by CollegeFootballNews.com, Football Writer’s Association and Rivals.com, recording 18 tackles (13 solo, five assisted), 4.5 tackles for loss and three sacks, tying for fourth on the team, and tallying a career-high four tackles at NC State, which included a career-best two sacks.  Forston had three tackles against Wake Forest and his first career sack came on a magical Thursday evening in a win against Virginia Tech.

In 2009, Forston played in three of the first four games including FSWho, Georgia Tech and Chokelahoma before sitting out the remainder of the season with an injury, earning a medical hardship for the 2009 season.  In 2010, Forston came back with a vengeance, playing in 13 games, starting 12, recording 37 tackles, including the second-most tackles for loss on the team (12).  Forston sacked the QB three times on the year and even picked off a pass.

2011 Outlook:  Think of it this way: even if []_[] Tough, D’Onofrio, and Jethro Franklin had been working with scientists to design a force of nature to destroy an offense, they could be hard pressed to have what we have in Forston.  The problem is, we need like 8 Forstons.  Personally, I think current University of Miami students should follow Marcus around making sure he doesn’t accidentally trip on the steps at the UC or slip and fall walking around the Memorial Building when it rains.  It’s going to be a long season, and we need Forston to stay healthy to be successful, especially with some of the trash we have to play in November (cough *FSWho* cough).

    A nipple sighting, uh oh “down goes offense, down go offense”. It’s funny how nobody wants to give the keys to nipple to run an offense but he keeps hanging on as a qb coach, lol, seems like i made up position knowing he’s in it, another ivy league connection slot.

    He’s better suited to coaching with nfl guys, he ha no clue on how to develop college players!

    Hell at this rate, let’s just get forston on the field, i’m not worried about the team, but when you lose a spence and forston off of your defense, it’s going to be hard to be a dominant defense. We still got time and tell greg cote to calm down with that drama article over there, no big deal, if this is how these players careers are going to end, than so be it, the ncaa will have it’s way for now. They’re will be repercussions no doubt if something ridiculous comes down and we’ll see with all the law degrees that came out of UM, how strong that unit is.

  9. Six, for the Skype question…yes you can skype from a mobile phone to a desktop. can do the same with FaceTime if the person on the desktop has a Mac. skype can do all OS’s tho and even skype enabled TVs. with Microsoft owning Skype now its jut a matter of time before you can skype with someone using the kinect on the 360.

  10. we need to collect some dirt on that NCAA dude Emmert. NEED Vernon, Spence, and Ray Ray eligible.

    No doubt, i’m almost sure he resembles that that official who was reaching for toilet tissue under the next man’s stall. Forget telemaque and his yapping azz being cleared if true we need our real players back.

  12. yeah Telemaque is down the list when it comes to who i’d want eligible first. i’ll list mine.

    1) spence
    2) vernon
    3) armstrong
    4) fortson
    5) travis
    6) jacory
    7) jojo
    8) adewale
    9) telemaque
    10) marcus robinson
    11) aldarius
    12) dye

  13. Give me Spence, Ojomo, Ray Ray, Forston and Vernon and let’s roll this bytch.

    Spence has to be #1 on that list of needs.

    —– bcoz he so FULL of emotion…pffft…lol just play your assignments plez!!

  19. ck, if you seriously got vaughn telemaque rated that high, you’re high dawg. You got him rated higher than ojomo, travis benjamin and j12 or marcus robinson, lol.

  20. My list:
    spence
    forston
    j12
    aldarius
    vernon
    ray ray
    ojomo
    travis
    jojo
    robinson
    telemaque
    dyron

  21. CK I am not that high on Ray Ray so far in his career. I am however scared of the second string safeties.

    That said, I think he has a big year. Soph to Jr season is usually the biggest jump in on field production. Kids stop thinking and instincts kick in.

    I think that there is a big drop off from the 1′s to the 2′s at safety. More so than the other positions thus my thoughts on Ray Ray’s return.

    I am hoping on both safeties but I will take one worst case scenario.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

    An plus if the snitch wasn’t a official booster then they’d be in the clear to…a few years back some guy in alabama took Julio and Ingram on a deep sea fishin trip but I dont think he was a booster????? But they just had to repay the loot and they were in the clear…just like Miss Clark said b4 if I was the one hooking dudes up they er thang would be to the good…

  23. Cal – I have Telemacky higher than Ojomo, TB3, J12, and Robinson purely bc we have pretty decent EXPERIENCED backups in each of those other 4 positions.

    Nash – I’ve seen RayRay miss WAAAAAYYYY too many tackles and lose WAAAAYYYY to many assignments for me to anoint him like you guys.

  24. C1 – I understand that, its just that when I saw B.Harris and Spence in their first two years I knew they would be something special. Never had that feeling for RayRay.

    With that said, you can certainly understand why I have Telemacky high on my list. The second string safeties on this team won’t scare anyone in the ACC. And considering RayRay has shown me nothing, I think he is replaceable.

  27. ck, you gotta get past looking for the highlight plays and just look at how steady a guy ray ray, he tackles real well in space, is normally around the ball when it’s in the air. He comes up and sticks people and has good play diagnosing skills.

    The question i have for you is, why is telemaque that high on your list.

    Hey goldie^^^^

  36. Cal – I just disagree with your assessment. I’ve seen RayRay falling down after a back makes a cut one to many times for me to say he tackles well in space. Idk where you get play diagnosing skills, you HAVE to remember those touchdowns when he was the covering safety who missed the coverage.

    And I really don’t watch highlights of Canes games…I watch the games.

    Oddly enough Telemacky is high on my list for the first reason you spoke of, consistency. Now I’m not saying he is great by any account, but he isn’t bad. And in a secondary that needs all the help it can get I’d rather take consistently average player instead of one the is hot and cold.

    ———–

    One that is hot and cold and was the only one of the two that would get benched and replaced with another player..

  38. CK, my initial reaction was “you crazy?!” to seeing Telemaque over Ray Ray. Telemaque is one of the most tackle missing guys we got. And he doesn’t make up for it by getting a lot of INTs or pass break ups. Ray Ray will miss a tackle here and there, but not over and over like VT. Plus I do think he takes his game to a new level this year. Just can see the progression – especially when other guys keep mentioning him as being the leader in the secondary along with JoJo.

    i do understand the reasoning when it comes to good back ups though. its why i had vernon and ray ray over Fortson. at least at DT we have guys who’ve started. without vernon we’ll have a true freshman starting most likely and without ray ray we have a converted QB – a converted QB i’m high on but still.

    and Calvin, you know you can’t say anything about telemaque when u got #4 that high. if we go without #4 with Morris at QB then that’s no loss at all. for jacory it might be a slight loss, but not for Morris.

  39. Also, anyone else think it was funny that Cal said, “ck, you gotta get past looking for the highlight plays” and then proceeded to post youtube highlights of RayRay lol, jus sayin.

    Article by my friend, Reva, whom some of you met in Columbus last September:

    http://www.ihatejjr.com/content/hurricane-karma

  45. “One that is hot and cold and was the only one of the two that would get benched and replaced with another player..”

    Bennie, Glen Cook would never get switched out either though. Beason got benched for damn near a complete season though early on. And Sharpton would get in and out too. Sharpton wasn’t a world beater but was compared to Cook. Telemaque was where he was supposed to be. But besides a stretch last year he never made the plays you’d hope he make. Ray Ray has is flaws but I’d take him in a heartbeat over #7.

  46. Yeah I was thinking that myself Este, Telemacky is the king of missed tackles but you said it exactly, I have a whole lot more faith in RayRay’s backup than I have in Vaughn’s.

  47. God damn these reporters are IGNORANT.

  48. CK, i think Highsmith would end up being the first safety off the bench if a long term replacement was needed at either safety spot. i like what i saw from swasey though in the spring – seems to have the instincts for the spot. and i’ve said before i like tyrone cornelius and that if #7 can’t learn to tackle he’ll be losing his job to a guy like #39 who knows how to wrap up.

    //////////////////////////////

    ck, those plays i posted with ray ray shows the good and bad, it wasn’t biased, it had him getting beat by posey, it didn’t just show only the plays he made it showed his football instincts whether he was in on the tackle or not. How many times have you seen telemaque come up and make a play behind the line of scrimmage or meet a runningback in the whole, you get that from ray ray. Everybody already knew ray ray needed to work on his pass coverage skills, i’m talking football instincts in run support and being around the ball in the air as well.

    Plus when you add in the fact that telemaque has been here 3 years and ray ray was a true sophmore, you have to see that ray ray is already the better ball player, see how many tackles ray ray had this year compared to the team rankins in tackles!

    ———————————-

    I think Glen Cook was part of the mafia and told Shannon that if he didn’t play people would die or something.. Sure, he was in the picture to make the play but just wasn’t able, for whatever reason.

    Sharpton, eh. Just another one of our patchwork middle linebackers.. At least we didn’t give up massive runs gashed up the middle with him like we did with 44.

    I’m not sitting here saying VT is an elite safety by any means. AllCanes has a NICE photo of him whiffing on a tackle again Cierre Wood in the ND game.. Just saying that as the years have gone by he’s been a pretty steady performer. Might not be an EXCELLENT performer, but a steady performer. Which I guess is better than being outright horrendous.

CB JoJo Nicolas was absent, due to personal reasons. TE Dyron Dye’s absence was unexplained.

    Basketball transfer Larkin officially signs
    by: Steve Gorten August 26th, 2011 | 12:46 PM
    CORAL GABLES — Shane Larkin, a transfer from DePaul, officially has signed with Miami and is enrolled in classes, UM announced Friday.

    The son of ex-Cincinnati Reds shortstop Barry Larkin must sit out the upcoming season, but is allowed to practice with the team.

    Larkin, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound point guard from Orlando Dr. Phillips High, was the Class 6A Player of the Year runner-up to Austin Rivers as a senior.

    He led his team to a 27-6 record and the state championship game his final season while averaging 18.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 3.5 steals per game.

    UM coach Jim Larranaga recruited Larkin while at George Mason. Larkin took an official visit there, but signed with DePaul.

    He asked for his release from DePaul this summer, citing an undisclosed medical condition as the reason. He was granted his release earlier this month. While he never played for DePaul, Larkin must still sit out a season because he’s considered a transfer since he received athletic aid from the school this summer.

    Larkin must sit out a full academic year upon his arrival at UM. However, he will be eligible immediately to practice and participate in all other team activities.

  76. I’ve seen VTele make more plays than Ray Ray

    I’m not saying that VTele is Ed Reed by any means – but I think he has the edge over Ray Ray

    I’ve also seen VTele whiff, just like I’ve seen Ray Ray ‘ole a few as well

    I think people are just enamored with Ray Ray’s outbursts or potential b/c of his frame out there

    Kid still has to show more

    VTele upending Roddy Jones of GTech was more impressive than Ray Ray being on the other side of DeMarco Murray coming down after leaping over a Cane – why? B/c VTele forced a fumble (but the Canes didn’t recover it) and it was a 8 to 9 yard loss on the play. VTele had 2 picks against Duke – and we all know that’s a tough place to play. He was also in the right place/right time for the fumble recovery of the UNC player that was at the goal line this past year – helped turn momentum around. He broke up that catch to Varner by hitting him as he was about to catch it going out of bounds

    ==================================

    Now Autumn,

    that’s good stuff. But, it really makes you wonder why the alleged $1O,OOO was not alleged to recruit the likes of Rivers, rather than someone with an LOI and even in class. Miami being given more than a nun’s slap in the wrist for alleged pay to recruits when there was never signature recruits en masse is slapstick comedy on UM cranium.

  90. Duke is a place where you come in healthy, and leave with nicked extremities.

  91. I will say this about Duke, in all seriousness.

    I’ve seen where we’ve played several games there.. There is one end of the field that if you play a noon or late afternoon game, the sun is an absolute PITA on kick returns.

    As for that, so much for a no excuses campaign last year.. LOL

  92. What Delray said about Autumn.

  93. ray ray had over 20 more tackles while playing a lot less snaps than Telemaque and had the same number of INTs and had more tackles for loss. and when he got INTs he didn’t immediately fall to the ground he got return yards from ‘em.

    plus ray ray gets voted 2nd team all acc. i know that’s done by the media so perception is involved but i think there is a reason why ray ray is perceived as being the greater impact player by others who cover the acc – and its not just cause he gets hype because telemaque is one celebrating dude too after tackles.

  95. Idk Este, I think much of RayRays popularity is the media hype. Again, not saying he sux, just saying a lot of this praise, ESPECIALLY those projecting him to be a 1st rounder in next years draft, is just plain silly if you base it off his gameplay to date.

  96. CK, no doubt some of the popularity comes with the size and number. his speed will be an issue once it comes time for real draft projecting. needs to be at least able to run 4.6. i’d bet he’s 4.7 running right now.

  97. Este I agree about Ray Ray.

    DaytonCane says:

    Telemaque needs to improve that backpedal quickly. Ugliest thing I ever seen.

    Ray Ray needs to stop whiffing on tackles and improve his movement in space. I know its pretty hard for a guy that big to move well laterally, but if he wants to take the next step thats something he needs to work on.

    Considering the talent that Paul Williams has had to work with in the past, I dont think these two will be that much of a problem to deal with.

  102. SpeedWrecks, just shows how popular the Canes still are. haven’t won anything of significance in years and still a bigger deal all across the country than all the listed issues above with not nearly the same amount of real issues.

  103. Dayton, one thing you can tell from his resume is that Williams loves him some physical play from his safeties. Ray Ray is a perfect fit. Telemaque has to quit diving at ankles – if he does he’ll be a good fit for it too.

  104. avatar
    DaytonCane says:

    Este, most NFL DBs dive at ankles, so thats not really an issue. It wouldnt be very “helpful” if a DB tries to tackle a RB coming downhill at fullspeed. Call it what you want, but there is a reason they dont tackle up top like LBs do.

    Now, for a guy like Ray Ray, he can tackle straight up because of his build. He’s more of a box safety anyway.

    I want VT to concentrate on improving that backpedal and diagnosing plays. He can always work on tackling later.

  105. dayton, but you know there is a difference between seeing what you’re hitting and going low with your tackle attempt and just putting your head down and diving blindly. i would get upset with telemaque for this and was glad when it was talked about during either the spring game or a game last year where he was whiffin. pointed out how he’s going to get himself hurt just lowering his head and diving at the feet of the ball carrier like that – and almost miss a lot of tackles that way too.

  106. Speed, he wasn’t just a poor young man. I believe he was a US Marine.

  132. lol @ a recipe i saw, can’t remember where i got the link, may have been on here

    but a recipe for “golden shots”.

    goldschlager and 151 rum of your choice.

    “awesome start to a canes game, unless you want to remember it.” LOL

  133. “awesome start to a canes game, unless you want to remember it.” LOL

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I guess we’ll wait and see who our starting QB is!

  134. [vomits on keyboard]

    I haven’t been able to handle 151 since a particularly eventful night in the Grove in 2002, where we did shots of 151 after dinner at TuTu Tango. Miss that place.

    and had them added to our hurricanes at Sandbar . . .

    Then there were the shots of jaeger at Moe’s . . .

    Speaking of, OSWho roll call, who is going out with us on Friday night?

  135. What’s the plan Mary?

  136. I’m torn on where to have dinner that night.

    Any new places in the Grove worth trying?

  137. JSQ – You’re crazy. My fav drink is two parts Goldschläger, 1 part 151. Cheap(er), efficient, and doesn’t taste like ass.

    Never.Again.

  139. CK, my liver is aching just thinking about that idea.

    I can’t drink brown liquors since the infamous game of Jack and Coke pong at the Pike house after the Homecoming Parade in 1999.

  140. Shwarma, any restaurant recommendations?

    I was thinking dinner at 8-8:30 and then go out around there after.

    It will be pretty much a class reunion for me so I want to stay around there.

    I haven’t been to the Tavern since after the last game in the Orange Bowl!!!

    Nash, just spoke to one of our enginners here at work. ( I work for a TV station and we have spots in the country that we broadcast to smartphones.) Basically what he said was you will get a very good picture due to the format being compressed. Only downside is it is subject to some jump screens. Anyways, that’s what i could find out.

    —— thank u sir

  143. Uh-oh, JSQ at a Pike party…

  144. KL – How could you not like Goldschläger??? It tastes like Big Red chewing gum

  145. I was a good girl, CK.

    But I have a story from that night that has a two drink minimum.

    Funny ish.

    Those boys were crazy. Half the fraternity got kicked out in 2000.

    Totally deserved. lmao.

  146. Lol, I’m sure you dated some guy in Pike your first two years on campus. Don’t lie JSQ ;)

  147. Nope. Not until the summer between undergrad and law school.

    And he definitely was a dime a dozen in that regard.

    What’s that you say? 80s hair bands?

    Done.

  152. ‘Vette over at CI said Vaughn Telemaque is cleared, that Ray Ray is looking good as well but not “official”.

    Not sure of his source but he’s pretty accurate with his info.

  153. JSQ I never eat in the grove, only drink

  154. Huff.

    I’ve asked Facebook.

    Will decide and make announcement, whomever wants in on dinner can tell me and I’ll make reservations for the group.

    My favorite restaurants in Miami are not in the Grove but I’m thinking driving that evening is not a great idea. We’ll see.

    I might just say F it and cab it to Randazzo’s Little Italy because I know Canez1 will like that. Not sure they have anything gluten free, though.

    Looks like the money the U spent on that “consultant” was rather well spent.

    Good to Al giving the Herald the Heisman….SDM asked one too many dumbass questions.

    Dipple MIGHT be decent as a QB coach but there’s no real way to tell because he didn’t do much of that in the NFL. The one place he did do it, Pittsburgh, he got fired by the new HC. I wouldn’t let him anywhere near my QB. But if you have the right signal-caller he won’t matter much.

  160. Cav, that was a big issue with Jeff Bowden at FSU in the earlier 2000′s..

    He was pretty good as a quarterbacks coach.. But when you all of a sudden take on offensive coordinator duty.. Some coordinators and coaches can’t do double duty.

    Thus the Rix era began. Took over after Richt left for UGA in 2000 with Weinke, and slowly the quarterbacks (studs as they were coming out of highschool) started becoming garbage and the offenses more predictable than our own here lately..

  167. and looking at people’s ads on craigslist trying to sell or buy HP Touchpads. One person post an ad saying they are trying to buy one at face value and no more (actually listed the wrong price for the 32GB one $10 less than actual price). That person must not really want one. Why would someone sell it on craigslist unopened for face value when they can get $200 for the $99 version easily? Even a small mark up is reasonable. But face value? person crazy.

    These reporters are so damn stupid. Players get injured ALL THE TIME. That’s why good coaches prep everyone to be able to play. This is no different. If anything it makes it easier to prep cause it’s like an injury happening a week before the game, so others have time to prep.

    I wish the U’s media coach would tell the players to give these dumbasses that answer. Figs almost did it naturally- “My job is to protect the QB. Whoever’s back there doesn’t make any difference to me.”

    Dog of fallen Navy SEAL to lead Iowa onto the field in opener?
    Posted by John Taylor on August 26, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    There are a lot of really cool entrances in college football, from Michigan players running onto the field and high-fiving a “Go Blue” banner to Clemson players touching Howard’s Rock before racing down The Hill to many, many others.

    If the following comes to fruition, however, it would easily trump those traditions on the chill-factor scale and go down as one of the most emotional and memorable entrances in recent memory.

    Earlier this month, Navy SEAL and lifelong Iowa fan Jon Tumilson was one of 31 members of the United States military — including 21 of his fellow SEALS — killed when their helicopter was shot down following a mission inside of Afghanistan. Tumilson’s funeral was earlier this week and a photo of his beloved dog laying in front of the casket throughout the entire service made headlines and caused many a room across the world to suddenly get extremely dusty.

    After watching videos and seeing pictures of the poignant scene, former Hawkeyes football player Jon Lazar had an utterly brilliant idea: allow Tumilson’s dog — aptly named Hawkeye — to lead the Iowa football team onto the field before the season opener against Tennessee Tech. Lazar told Pat Harty of the Iowa Press-Citizen that he has already broached the subject with Iowa officials and requested they make this happen

    “It just tears you apart to see that (video),” Lazar said. “But I thought how great it would be for that dog to lead the Hawkeyes down to the field and to have the announcer tell the story of this dog.

    “I think everybody would be crying in the stands.”

    [/goose bumps]

    Would there be a better way, eight days before the 10th anniversary of 9-11, for Iowa to honor the memory of both Tumilson and all his fellow serviceman who have given the ultimate sacrifice by having the soldier’s beloved dog lead his favorite football field out onto the field?

    I implore Iowa officials to take Lazar’s idea and run like hell with it. And, I would also urge any Iowa alumni reading of this idea to contact the school and implore to it run like hell with it as well.

    This. Needs. To. Happen.

    You can tell a lot about men who do that …

    Anyway I am planning on getting fuked up today and into the night so I probably won’t remember much of this ghey ass storm.

    Stocked up on the Grey Goose, Remy and Jaeger so this should get pretty ugly.

    ^^^^^^^

    —— prayers…… Heeheehee
    ——————–
    SOME WILL NEED THAT FOR SURE AFTER IRENE GETS THRU THAT SAME N.EAST THAT GOT SMACKED BY EARTHQUAKE MINERAL

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

    But after Irene posts her visit, most won’t even dare say this storm is ghey after she cuts your ballz off by leaving you all powerless, and as princesses of the Dark!

    it will be days of suffering and the dark dooms of wishing for a tomorrow of light that’d seem anything but fleeting…

    How you’d wish you had never dish disrepect her… in your hallow cries of mercy

    and now all you got, are your prayers to deliver you from her aftermath… Storming Hurricane Irene!

    GO HURRICANES!
    BEAT MD!

  242. For my good buddy C1.

    Jacory Harris: What do the fans that stand behind the team in the midst of the investigation mean to Harris?

    “It means a lot,” Harris said. “It sucks if you see people that normally cheer for the U turn their backs at the end of the day. But you see more and more people tweeting every day `I stand by the U,’ just supporting us. That makes us feel 100 percent better.”

  245. Futch is falling

    Futch says he wasn’t surprised coaches moved him – he says Gaines proved himself as a big-time playmaker, so his best shot to see the field was elsewhere.

    “There isn’t much you can do to get in front of Jimmy,” Futch said. “Jimmy is the real deal. You’re talking about pure athlete.”

    Spence says of Futch’s progress on the weakside that “He’s doing a great job. He’s being physical, is picking up the mental part. He’s doing a great job being vocal, making a lot of plays out there.”

    * Working at MLB behind Gaines is Gionni Paul and Kelvin Cain. At SLB is Ramon Buchanan backed up by CJ Holton and Eddie Johnson.

    Also if you listen to the Forston interview I guess one of the reporters off the bleachers. Hilarious! Forston said Damn boy you aight! HA!

    And AJ is funny. We were joking around about what he was going to eat afterwards. Those are some hungry boys!

  256. For the record, Jacory is also very nice.

    I wasn’t placed in his line, though.

    Nice to see all the guys who are “inelligible” as of now at the event.

  257. Did AJ ask you for a dollar, JSQ?

    You are the SAME guy every day! My type of guy!

    Raize.

    I only play 2 defense really. 4-4 and I use Quarter Normal for 3 and 5 WR Sets and the other Quarters D for 4 WR sets. I also pinch my DL and hot route them to QB contain for mobile QBs. If its a REALLY mobile QB like Denard Robinson or Terrell Pryor then I’ll also set my strategy for QB contain and Option to Aggressive and also when I pinch my DL I hot route the boundry side of the fields DE to QB Spy unless I’m in Quarters Normal where then the MLB who I sub package to Sean Spence spies the QB. Game takes a bit of practice too. You have to spend time with it to learn the nuances.

  284. Not 4-4 D bro. That is a typo. I play 4-3 and Quarters.

Tommy Streeter has really stepped up his game. He’s made a lot of catches, a lot of big plays. He’s an explosive receiver. It’s really fun to watch Allen Hurns. It’s fun to watch LaRon Byrd and Travis Benjamin and how they all work together. And the young guys too – Phillip Dorsett and Rashawn Scott have done a tremendous job.

    Do you really expect this coaching staff to unveal the secret weapon!

  295. Alot of people don’t realize, this offense and the philosophy of it is basically the same offense j12 ran at the west, basically a zone offense, so when you hear goldie & crew saying jacory had an excellent camp, it’s the same situation as when j12 came in the virginia game a few years back, early in the that drive the announcers were questioning whether marve was hurt or not and why is j12 in there, by the end of the drive the anouncers had been converted into true believers.

    I go back to what insanez1 said about “j12 being the opposite of what goldie & coach d stands for” and that had alot of validity to it in the beginning because i’m sure goldie & dnofrio thought that too, but as camp went on, j12 made believers out of them too and shocked them, people always underestimate those stringbean type kids.

  298. I remember when coach stoutland came in and one of the 1st things i liked was how he identified early on what positions he wanted guys to play at, now how he came to those conclusions i had no idea but that is a good thing but i got way more faith in a kehoe coached o-line and his eye of putting players in certain positions on the line than jeff stoutland anyday of the week. With figs and brandon washington moving outside now so it seems, that’s a good sign that brandon linder and more than likely harland gunn has improved as well. Whoever the start 5 is going to be on the o-line, it’s all good, going to be interesting to see if bunche even gets to start anywhere let alone getting hijacked for that left tackle spot from the looks of things!

    Figueroa impressive

    Sixth-year senior Joel Figueroa appears to have either won or be in the lead for the starting left tackle job. Freshman Malcolm Bunche was expected to win the job coming into camp with sophomore All-American Seantrel Henderson out with a back injury.

    But Figueroa, who has made 15 starts in his career (13 at guard), has been impressive, according to teammates. Junior Brandon Washington, who was moved to right tackle after Henderson’s injury, said he has seen a different level of play from Figueroa, who has lost nearly 15 pounds since having surgery.
