Miami vs. Boston College Eagles Preview

117 comments

~ The following article was contributed by beloved Eye of the Hurricane blogger, Delray ~

It’s been a long summer.  Just like Tom Petty sang, “the waiting is the hardest part.”  Well friends and fellow Canes fans, the waiting is almost over.  This coming Saturday our beloved Miami Hurricanes travel into the Chestnut Hill area of Newton, Massachusetts and take on the Eagles of Boston College.  Like last year, I’ll be taking a look at our Canes opponents every week to try to gauge what will be in store for us.  With Boston College being our first opponents, it’s not as easy to predict who will start at certain positions and such.  Boston College has had some significant injuries both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.  So I’m going to take a shot at it and we can always discuss on the blog if there are any changes.

OFFENSE: Boston College returns 9 starters from last season including:

Quarterback:

  • Chase Rettig #11, Height: 6-foot-3, Weight: 212 pounds, Class Year: JR

As Chase goes, so do the Eagles.  Chase had a Heisman-like performance last time he was on the field against the Hurricanes. Come to think of it, most QB’s did last year.  Besides that he completed 54% of his passes for 2011 with 12 TDs and 9 INTs.  This all computed to a quarterback rating of 12.2.

Wide Receivers and TEs:

  • Colin Larmond #1, Height: 6-foot-3, Weight: 202 pounds, Class Year: SR
  • Alex Amidon #83, Height: 5-foot-11, Weight: 185 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Jonathan Coleman #14, Height: 6-foot-4, Weight: 208 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Mike Naples #89, Height: 6-foot-4, Weight: 240 pounds, Class Year: JR

The Eagles where dealt a blow to their receiving ranks when both their top receiver and tight end went out with injuries.  Chris Pantele, a senior tight end, and Bobby Swigert, the best returning receiver from last year, will be watching from the sidelines due to injuries.  Lammond, who went 1,220 yards on 68 catches last year, is the deep threat the Canes need to worry about.  Amidon and Coleman combined for almost 900 yards on 55 receptions.  Look for the Eagles to use RB Tahj Kimble in the slot as an option. Mike Naples finished 2011 with 1 catch for 8 yards and was primarily a blocking back behind Pantele.

Running Back:

  • Andre Williams #44, Height: 6-foot-0, Weight: 222 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Rolandan Finch #28, Height: 5-foot-10, Weight: 209 pounds, Class Year: JR

There was a sigh of relief that went out through the ACC defenses when word spread that Montell Harris would no longer be playing for the Eagles.  That faded quickly when we were reminded that he didn’t play last year against Miami either when a 3-8 team embarrassed the Canes at home.  This year, look for the Eagles to rotate Williams and Finch as different situations arise.  Finch, or “Deuce” as he is known, is a bruiser who had a career day against Maryland last year rushing for 242 yards.  It’s just a hunch, but look for Chase to use both of these guys out of the backfield on short passes if the Canes are not able to apply pressure at the line of scrimmage.

Offensive Line:

  • Ian White #62, Center, Height: 6-foot-5, Weight: 303 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Bobby Vardaro #76, Guard, Height: 6-foot-5, Weight: 301 pounds, Class Year: SO
  • Harris Williams #64, Guard, Height: 6-foot-4, Weight: 301 pounds, Class Year: SO
  • John Wetzel #73, Tackle, Height: 6-foot-8, Weight: 302 pounds, Class Year: SR
  • Emmett Cleary #77, Tackle, Height: 6-foot-7, Weight: 303 pounds, Class Year: JR

As Miami was once known as quarterback “U,” Boston College should be known as O-Line College.  Through the past 10 years the Eagles have turned out numerous offensive lineman that have gone on to have productive years in the NFL including Lions tackle Gosder Cherilus, a first-round draft pick in ’08; Bucs tackle Jeremy Trueblood, second round in ’06; Giants guard Chris Snee, second round in ’04; Patriots center Dan Koppen, fifth round in ’03; Cowboys tackle Marc Colombo, a first-round pick of the Bears in ’02; and most recently Anthony Costanzo, a first round pick of the Colts in 2011.  Obviously they are teaching the offensive line something up there and it is working.  With all the injuries to their receivers, the Eagles will need to work extra hard as teams will be gearing up for the run.

DEFENSE:

Defensive Line:

  • Kasim Edebali #91, Defensive End, Height: 6-foot-2, Weight: 249 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Kaleb Ramsey #96, Defensive Tackle, Height: 6-foot-3, Weight: 302 pounds, Class Year: SR
  • Dillon Quinn #92, Defensive Tackle, Height: 6-foot-6, Weight: 292 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Brian Mihalik #99, Defensive End, Height: 6-foot-8, Weight: 285 pounds, Class Year: Soph

The Eagles got some good news when Ramsey was granted an additional year due to an injury that kept him out of every game but the opener last year.  They will be strong and have depth at the DT position.  On the outside, they are a bit weaker as they only accounted for 11 sacks last year.  Add to that Max Holloway, the leading end from last year, left school early.  This will be a good test for the Canes to open the inside up.  If that doesn’t work, look for more runs to the outside.

Linebackers:

  • Steele Divitto #49, Linebacker, Height: 6-foot-3, Weight: 220 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Kevin Pierre-Louis #24, Linebacker, Height: 6-foot-1, Weight: 212 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Sean Duggan #34, Linebacker, Height: 6-foot-4, Weight: 228 pounds, Class Year: SO 

A lot of people are thinking that now that Luke Kuechly no longer roams the middle, teams can come in and have their way with this Eagles defense.  Not so fast, my friends.  Kevin Pierre-Louis has stepped into this spot and will fill in nicely.  No he is no Luke, but will get the job done.  This year’s linebacking crew will be a bit smaller than last year’s, but should have decent speed  are very instinctive and are capable of making plays.  Again, this will be a good test for our offensive line.

Secondary:

  • Jim Noel #23, Defensive Back, Height: 6-foot-4, Weight: 185 pounds, Class Year: SR
  • C.J. Jones #6, Defensive Back, Height: 5-foot-11, Weight: 178 pounds, Class Year: SO
  • Manuel Asprilla #21, Defensive Back, Height: 5-foot-10, Weight: 167 pounds, Class Year: SO
  • Josh Keyes #25, Defensive Back, Height: 6-foot-2, Weight: 208 pounds, Class Year: SO

The Eagles did well in the secondary allowing only 8 passing touchdowns in 12 games.  There top corner is Asprilla, who comes off last year with 30 tackles and 3 break ups.  While the Eagles do lack a true lock down corner, they do have depth and due to that competition they have created, they have pushed themselves to be better.  One thing they will need to be more effective with will be a productive pass rush to force the opposing teams QB into bad decisions.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

  • Nate Freese #85, Kicker, Height: 6-foot-0, Weight: 181 pounds, Class Year: JR
  • Gerald Levano #32, Punter, Height: 6-foot-2, Weight: 210 pounds, Class Year: SR

As far as kickers go, Nate Freese has been consistently inconsistent. Although going 10 for 16, he did hit a career long back in 2011 with a 52 yard field goal.  Freese also connected on 4 field goals over 40 yards in length, yet missed a 23 yarder.  If he can put it all together, he may be the difference is a few games and the difference between if Boston College goes bowling or not.  After a few years of waiting in the wings, Gerald Levano gets his first crack as the punter for the Eagles.

  2. SEC is dominant. It’s the NFL on Saturdays. To think otherwise is retarded. No other conference is as good as it

    Canes fans spout off about their 5 rings in football, it’s no different than the SEC spouting off about their titles

    Since the inception of the BCS, an SEC team has been in the title game 9 times in 14 years, winning 8 of those times – the only time the SEC has lost is b/c two SEC teams were in the title game last year

    USC might have a shot at the title game this year – ‘Bama and LSU are down a little bit at some positions, so if there was any year for any other conference to step up and try and knock the big boys from the SEC down, this is it

    The games I see for the Canes this year where they might not come out winning –

    – @ Kansas State
    – NC State
    – @ Notre Dame
    – FSU
    – Virginia Tech

    With some scares at Virginia and home against USF – either could be an L. Don’t kid yourself, Mike London has done a decent job at UVA and to only beat USF 6-3 last year was scary – the kids up the road from me have no fear whatsoever of the Canes and honestly, they haven’t had any reason to have any at all recently

    The baby Canes that have come in are football nerds, so that helps – and they’re actually being pushed in the weight room. Still would love to have a legit training table for them, but any progress from the past regime is good progress b/c they didn’t have sh*t. I’ve seen people at Metropolitan Ministries have better meals/nutrition plans. It’s bad when homeless people are eating better than a damn college football team

    Bed time. Early flight to DC for the Bucs/’Skins game, gonna go hang with Santana & Hankie on the sideline on Wednesday

  3. Good read! Can’t wait for kickoff folks!

    Six straight Cal,

    But even if it was five…What do you have to compare it to? The two that The Pac-10/USC won in 04-05′? And don’t forget Auburn’s record in 04′ either. If you wanna call em OVERVALUED, then you’d have a fraction of a leg to stand on….maybe. But the proof is in the puddin when it comes to their rating.

    On the low tho’….A good reason that FSU and us have been down, could be because a lot of the kids that used to wanna play for UM and FSU….are playing in the SEC these-a-day.
    /////////////////////////

    The only reason the sec is relevant is because of bad coaching staffs at UM & Fsu. usc looks to be back and of course oklahoma has been maintaining. Again, the sec is overrated, where was all this sec talk when spurrier was with the gaytors!

  5. Good Job Delray! Hopefully the canes can win a few. I have no idea who plays for us or them. Just going to be a fan this year and hope for the best. Micheal Irvin ate Cheerios for breakfast and lunch while at UM did not seem to mess up his game. I think laziness and players with very little respect for the school themselves had more to do with crappy play than their food intake. Although I do think proper nutrition is important but trust me those kids ate.

    GO CANES!

  6. Thanks UofO. The first one is always the toughest because npbody has played yet and you are guessing on who will be the starters at some position. This will not be an easy game for the Canes. Alot of people are picking BC to have 3 or 4 wins this season. If we are one of them it will be a very long season.

    Question, if we declare ourselves “Bowl ineligible” before the season starts, and don’t win 6 games would it still count as a penalty or would we get a do over?

  7. Dat in the house= football right around the corner.

    Its time my brotha!! Hope all is well with u and Ur better half.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  8. Nice first, Hurri! Orange or green?

    DAT, good to see you! Hope to see you in E5 in a few weeks! Please tell Mrs. DAT hello for me! Love her!

    Delray wonderful job as always! You keep thus site going, my friend!

    SEC dominance the last few years is stating the obvious. Two dominant teams, bammer & LSU, one flash in the pan, Auburn with Cam, the rest, meh, I’m not sold on the cocks & Hogs as national powers, yet.

    To be honest I could care less, I think it’s lame when you’re a turd, go 6-6, and fall back on hollerin’ “SEC, SEC” GTFOH with that ish, you’re record was stll 6-6. Same with the ACC and their sucka$$ BCS bowl record. At the end of the day, when it’s all said and done, I don’t give a F about them either. I don’t lose sleep over any of it.

    Let’s assume AG helps us to climb out of this hellhole in a couple of years. Let’s say we’re a national power again at some point. I’m still not going to give a fig about the ACC or SEC then, either.

    I love football, but conference pride, F that. I could care less. F the conferences and everybody else. Only one thing counts and that’s this []_[].

  12. triple c, i’m the same way, i could care less about us winning a conference championship. I still got the independent mindset. big east championships, meant nothing. Even if we win the acc championship, means nothing to me, their’s only one game that matters to me, always has and always is, national championship or bust, i really don’t care what year it is. Even this year, i know we young and this & that, but it’s still national championship or bust, that’s the standard at UM and coach goldie knows that fact. That’s why in that press conference when somebody asked him about us getting guys over bama & co., goldie was quick with it,

    coach goldie
    “are we not suppose to beat alabama down here, i don’t get that, you add up all those guys together and they don’t have 5 championships between, that’s what i’m fighting against everyday”

    I won’t get hype if we win the acc championship, means nothing to me. I just know that when they start all this sec talk, it’s baloney. Add to that fact that while yeah the gaytors are in the sec, they are still a team from Florida, full of Florida players, which is also why they dominated that conference for so long. Same with Fsu being in the acc, us, Fsu and the gaytors when we had stable coaching staffs were going to dominate any conference we joined, this is why conferences didn’t want Miami in them back in the dya because it would definitely chop off all hopes of them ever winning a national championship. That type of dominant football we played scared conferences away.

    Everybody knows that if you couldn’t handle the gaytors, there was no need for you even trying to come see us or Fsu. Again, the sec my azz.

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

    lol, the saving grace right now is he hired 3 guys outside of that who will definitely make the biggest differences for this team, coach kehoe, young mcdonald & jedd fisch. We should never have a suspect defense at UM, what this d-co is banking on, the fact that he’s getting better athletes into his scheme, he automatically thinks that means this defense will be dominant. That’s one of the questions that’s going to be answered. In the old days, we just ran a defense that forced your offense to try and out athlete our defense.

    I can’t wait to see what this defense looks like! I’m not worried about the offense.

    Since Urban “esophageal spasms” Meyer left the state, the coaching in-state has been subpar. Hopefully Goldie changes that. I’m still not sold on dumbo at FSU as somebody that can bring them all the way back. Anything more than one regular season loss for FSU this year, with the schedule and talent they have, will not cut it.

    As far as Muschump, he is starting to look more and more like a raging dumpster fire. If you haven’t heard, there’s talk of platooning Brissett and Driskell. Yea, that’s gonna work out real well. Havinfpg the OC from Boise doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to have Boise results. Especially shuttling in the Walmart bargain-bin broke-dik version of Tebow in Driskell

    I actually think Ceistobal is raising eyebrows and doing more with less, but national prominence is hard when you don’t have the overall talent.

  16. Acc has always been a basketball conference and they will dump more funding into that than anything. The ONLY THING that seperates the acc from the sec is coaching. Its not players. its coaching. UM has had more than enough talent to win and win big in the last 7 years but what Um has lacked is COACHING. If you take Saban, Miles, Petrino, Spurrier, and even Urban Liar and put them in the acc at anytime in the last 7 years at VPI, UM, FSU, Clemson, UNC, or GT and you keep the same players then the world would be talking about how dominate the acc is and how no one can stop them.

    “The ONLY THING that seperates the acc from the sec is coaching. Its not players. its coaching.”
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    End story.

    Strong coaching builds strong programs that win NC’s.

    Saban lost like 6 games his first year taking over Bama from Shula. Shula was a joke.

    The coaching in the SEC is above and beyond any other conference in the country by a LARGE Margin.

    We all choose players from the same pool. How you develop those kids is the difference maker.

    We have had program killers leading this program for the past decade.

    THAT is the ONLY reason we are and have been irrelevant. Those two morons drove this death star in to the ground.

    Great points Champ…

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  18. Meyer is a great coach.

    Love him or hate him, I could care less.

    Dude is a winner wherever he goes.

    Program builder.

    Just call it like it is.

    If he was a Cane and was winning NC’s here, we would love him just the same.

    He will have OSU back in the spotlight sooner rather than later.

    They already have had that program humming for a LONG time

    Guaranteed.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Agree with Uchamps about 90%.

    100% on the coaching no doubt about that. Petrino was too stupid to keep his goomah out of the limelight, but the sob could recruit and coach a killer offense. And he was the third or fourth best coach in the conf. even Franklin at Vandy is a hot commodity. We’ll see about chump.

    But as far as players, top to bottom, I give the top 4 SEC teams a lead. Some of those teams, like bama, have 3-deep potential starters. they redshirt their decent freshmen regularly. Most importantly, what the SEC has more than anyone else is money, and they know how to spend it: coaches, facilities, etc.

    Still, tho, F that conference pride bullshat

  20. yes Canez1 totally have changed my tune about Coach hate. Give me a coach that wins. Much as I hate Lane Kiffin would not mind if he coached at Miami. Let’s win. As fans we can’t really say Miami has been losing because we have been on the straight and narrow path either. Can’t throw to many stones.

    Outside of basketball the ACC has always stunk. FSU has won and GT has won, who else???

    Being a conference homie is just ridicoulous but it would be nice to be in a conference that vested as much interest in football as the SEC.

    Also forget to mention the SEC has a huge leverage because of money and that leverage is priceless in recruiting…if you know what I mean.

    Hopefully after Miami is dealt their punishment or not and the NCAA gets on with this already, the rebuilding can begin.

    I remain just a fan, not going to get mired down in individual players no more, never again.

    :)

  21. Agree totally CC.

    The hate comes directly from envy.

    Like the ultimate losers, we hung our hat on having a clean program and good academics.

    Clean,not so much. Academics, could care less.

    Losers worry about that stuff. Winners do whatever they can to gain an advantage.

    Hopefully those days are looong gone.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  22. I’m not sold on Meyer BUILDING a program just yet. He is a hell of a coach but he always seems to win with other coaches recruits. He seemingly takes semi established programs, creates a winning environment and flourishes. but when it comes time to BUILD a program from scratch……. he Usainz his way to the next semi established program where he will win with another coaches recruits.

    Sure, he can recruit, athletes. But can he recruit men? Can he mold young men into adult men? Especially young arrogant and talented men…. Sure he can coach football but he can’t raise men? Look at all those priMadonnas and out of control cocky athletes with that crazy arrest record and behavior he left at Florida.Doesn’t seem like hes to good at teaching young men how to take care of responsibility. and that’s a lot of what coaching is all about, raising men. Especially if you want to consider yourself one of the greats. only, imo.

  23. Meyer makes smart, calculated moves in his coaching career and flourishes as a result.

    Can’t hate that.

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  24. Meyer makes smart, calculated moves in his coaching career and flourishes as a result.

    Can’t hate that.
    ———-

    and you cant. he is anal over that win/loss record.

    You can almost call him the laryy brown of football, with the only difference being, l.b. could actually coach. meyer is garbage, and i would never root for faggot no matter where he is. He should never be allowed to set foot on campus. UM not only wins but dominates when they have g’s as headcoaches like schnelly, like jimmy, i didn’t mess with erickson that much until he finally understood and took on that, it was us against the world mentality, and now goldie, those coaches i just named(besides goldie cause he got work to do but he got what it takes) are not only great coaches, but are some of the realest people you’ll meet in life. Those coaches were born to coach at UM, goldie seems like he has the DNA to add his name to the ranks of coaches that came thru here.

    Just like oscar cryer belonged in gainesville, him and that sissy azz jump pass offense, if i was a d-co, i’d never let that play work, and would probably walk cross the field and swing on em just for trying to call that gay azz play football. A jump pass, come on manm have some pride, only a weasel like him would call that play, i would never want to win a game like that, i couldn’t be happy and would be embarassed if i was on a team who ran that play. oscar cryer’s arkvark looking azz, that play fits him to a tea.

    Hurriphin, that was about to be my question to you about when did you start watching sec football, prior to this lil mini run they’re on now, the only teams that reslly were competing for the national championships on a regular were us, the big 12 and the pac 10, check the history past these last fluke 5 or 6 years man. Than when you talking bout the sec, who are you really talking about, and how many legit teams come out of that conference. You basically talking bout around 4 teams.

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Kiffin’s not a good example. He can recruit, but he hasn’t won anything yet. What has he done? One good year last year, yes, but if he screws the pooch this year, ie, something like three losses when he’s picked to win or get to the NC game, then he’s back to being a great recruiter but can’t-coach-on-the-field guy.

    Jury’s still out on Kiffin, although there’s a good chance he breaks through this year. Doesn’t hurt that the rest of the PAC-10 is inept (with the exception of perennial almost-there ORE).

  27. Envy is ugly…

    All teams go through ups and downs.

    Everything is cyclical.

    Great programs limit the downs.

    Gators were dominant on both sides of the ball for years.

    Meanwhile in CG…

    unless you’re looking to have an affair and you want more than just “a good personality”

    the scots are not a beautiful people on the outside, but they are very friendly, warm, open and generally non-neurotic; beautiful on the inside, so to speak

    Count me in as one of those who don’t really give many phucks about scholastics, and boyscouts.
    I ain’t sayin that any Slambuttsky-esq foolishness should be goin on….But I ain’t overly interested in what football players are doin with their cap n’ gowns.
    Jello and CC….I understand their plight, with them being alumni and or having family there….But its seems to me like we only started touting that aspect of the football team once we started getting our sh!t pushed back. Grades/Conduct/Institutional Integrity and football are two separate entities in this fan’s eyes.

    And there is one more difference between the ACC and SEC…

    Parody in talent.

    Even in a down year, Auburn is usually more talented than NCST, GT, WF, Duke, UVA, UNC, BC, and UMD.

  35. as far as our football team is concerned, there are priorities

    personally, i like that the U is extremely good on the academics

    and i think being in a stronger conference is more interesting than being in a weaker one

    . . . but i would have to agree, that on my priority list as a football fan, winning is #1

    . . . and if winning isn’t happening, i want to at least have pride in my team . . . for example, by not watching it melt down to virginia in the last orange bowl game

  36. Even in a down year, Auburn is usually more talented than NCST, GT, WF, Duke, UVA, UNC, BC, and UMD
    ———-

    Bsed on what? and Clemson is usually more talented than Kentucky,Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, ole miss, Mississippi and Arkansas.

    CanesCanesCanes says:

    Let’s deal in facts. The goody-two-shoes agenda was mandated by DS. She then made it a huge priority after the FIU fight. She set that agenda and drove it, in part, because of the media outcry. She still pushes it and considers it a priority. It was made clear during the coaching interviews after Coker and during the most recent ones. That’s a non-negotiable with her.

  38. LSU, Bama, Auburn had Cam newton, before then they didnt do squat since 2004 so they dont even count. aRKansas went as far as Petrino took them b4 then they were a non factor, hes gone, they will most likely return to being non factors. HMM Tennessee? umm no. Florida could be mentioned in the convo. UGA and USCe both pretty decent. A bit above average at best.

    So were talking. Bama, LSU, with honorable mention of UF. And all this proves is that coaching is the biggest factor. Because even the mediocre teams have pretty damn good coaches.

    But if you look at ACC football coaches salary and SEc coaches salary. You can see why established coaches are all over that conference.

    Cal,

    You sayin them dudes are overrated NOW tho’….If you aren’t saying that, then I stand corrected. But six straight championships…with the most recent being decided between two of their own…is cold-blooded, concrete, fact.
    Anyone who can’t wrangle that, is blind, ignorant, or has green eyes.

    And the last time we played an SEC team, I believe we suffered a 20-sumthin point loss, and were nearly goose-egged. Save the “stipulations” of the game for now. Focus on the facts.

  40. I have 2 tickets for the BC game this Saturday available last minute due to cancellations of supposed Canes fans. Any interest? If so email me at kgodbe@gmail.com. Go Canes!

    Hmmmmm its hard for me to give the SEC all those props man. Especially on the grounds that the BCS system is CROOKED as hell and all they care about is the dollars!

    No WAY in hell Bama should have been in that title game last year. Nobody even wanted to see that boring azz typical every year match up. SEc got the Espn contract they have the money they have the fans who will fill the stadiums and potentially boost the ratings. The corporate decision is what keeps the SEC in title talk.

    So i cant say that they Are the ish based on this crooked azz system.

  43. Uchamps, you called it on oscar cryer just like it is, he’s an opportunist, he’s not a builder of a program like spurrier or goldie and company, no him being at osu is a good fit for him, he’s from their and has a consistent talent base to recruit from, just like he did with the gaytors, but as soon as ron zooks recruits starting filing outta there, we all see & know what’s happened in gaytorville. He comes in coaching alot of tressel left behind talent, gotta a real talented qb, defense already in place, but with brady hoke up there with michigan, he’s going ot have his hands full trying to win the big 10 and with the way brett beleima has that wisconsin program hummin!

  44. SEC has been goonin for years now.

    Stop the silliness.

    BG LOL I was thinking the same thing.

    Golden was on the verge of rythmic slapping Flowers with all of that praise.

    SH better tighten up his rap game and hop on with the old man.

    Dude is done.

    Add one to the undefeated list, Funerals!!!

    GO CANEZ!!!!!

  45. Autumn only way I can get in is through Facebook and sometimes that does not work either. I agree cx3 100% about D S which having a daughter graduating in a couple months does not bother me. But I am way over graduating athletes, outside of tennis or crew those athletes could care less about athletics, not buying that garbage anymore. Just make it semi-pro and quite lying to me NCAA.

    I do think Lane will do well and the PAC 12 is doing better than it has in the past.(heck of a lot better than the ACC ). I sure wish the Canes had the same record as The Ducks have had over the last 5 years. So they maybe subpar to some but they have been pretty damn successful. We shall see they are in a rebuilding year too. And USC has some very good athletes ( and yes they cheat too).

    This season should be interesting!

  46. Could care less about Academics

    One hand i understand what you saying, but on the other hand, anybody that goes to temple and makes them competitive, there were alot of games where temple played strong, for instance, penn st. barely beat em, they bea the snot out of uconn, several examples of that team being physical and just upgraded the level of how that team competed.

    Been scanning some of these pre-season teams and all i keep hearing are guys sprinkled in from temple across the league now having an impact and making squads. So goldie has earned his stripes just taking that job and making them competitive against solid teams.

    Now when it comes to all the other resume, goldie is nowhere close but i bet the ole ball coach respects goldie’s career path over saban’s.

  55. JSQ, Canez1, Nash,

    Done with the kool aide drinking dawg…

    TSU Nashville got as many in the league as temple…

    And let’s nor act like it was the big easy temple it was the independent/Mac temple..

    And it ain’t like they was beating .500 or better teams either.

    If Goldie had show in the past he’d been dominate on either side of the ball I’d have more confident, or if he had lucked up and won the Mac I’d be like “ok maybe he’ll get UM to the next level”… But even tho he out recruited the big dogs in that conf he never beat them on the field and that really concerns me..

    I’d be willing to bet Big Leech will beat a USC, Org, Stanford in the 1st 2 years at wahoo st.

    So far Cristobal has just as good a resume..

    IMO if u wanna be a championship program u hire a championship Hc or atleast one that has been on a staff of a championship team!

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

    lol, Uchamps already touched on it, but come on dawg, you can’t be serious about that bs national championship game this year, boring as phuck. Nobody getting open on offense, travis benjamin or streeter would’ve bombed somebody in that game or miller would’ve broke loose at some point.

    The sec is overrated, where was all this sec talk prior to 2001 & 2002, hell, even all the way up to 2005, cause after us, it was usc and texas time.

    And please, stop it with all the “every program goes thru up’s and down’s” or it’s cyclical talk. That’s what happens to the sec schools and the big 10 schools, nobody in college football has ever had runs like us and Fsu had in the 80’s & 90’s. Fsu, top 5 finish for something like 14 years straight. Us, all we did was play dominant football from 1983 to 1993, got hit with the bs sanctions, than bounced right back to 2000 thru 2002 and dominated again.

    Non qulified coaches brought on board, than we fell off one brought the talent level back up, in comes a headcoach who’s already earned his stripes elsewhere and is ready to take that next step. If goldie has his way and it looks like he’s on his way, this team will continuosly being in the title hunt just like in years past.

    Also, quiet as kept, bob stoops is not doing tp bad in about the 10 years that he’s been their, he actually has oklahoma still on pace to what they;’re use to having, winning a bunch of ball games and being in the title hunt about every other year to 3 years.

  64. Eating and eating from a proper training table – with the right kind of weight room routine – are two completely different animals

    Canes haven’t had anywhere near the type of training table ‘Bama, LSU, FSU, etc. have had – Jimbo employed a nutritionist to oversee the exact amount of what was going into their players bodies, on top of their weight training on top of that

    Seeing a kid walking around shoving his face full of Taco Bell, Qdoba, Fill-In-The-Blank Chicken place, Burger King, McDonald’s, Dominos, Pizza Slut, etc. – sh*t in, sh*t out

    How many times have you heard Canes fans on here and other places complain about the Canes players looking smaller than other teams, getting pushed around by other teams, etc. ? and why does some SEC team or Wisky or even FSU have bigger/stronger players?

    My guy that was a recruiting assistant at Miami for a minute and also at UNC with Butch and Rocky Top with Kiffin – he laughed at the crap happening in Coral Gables

    Playmaker Irvin is a whole different animal, just like Ray Lewis – can’t compare those guys to anyone else. It’s like saying Michael Phelps smoked weed, ate like crap and still pulled in all those gold medals

    It’s 2012. Canes need to get with the program like everyone else is – Golden even said he was floored by the conditioning and eating habits/lack of training table at Miami

    Hung around Sean Taylor’s dedicated glass locker that the ‘Skins have on their Club Level today. Guy was a freak that will likely not be seen again at Miami, ever. They love him around here and they love Sheriff Gonna Getcha Portis as well

  67. nash, i’m hearing you and i know they definitely didn’t dominate in the mac conference, but goldie adapts well. This is the year where we’ll really see if he’s cut out for the job. He already understands that we need to play more press man, and said as much. Now seeing is believing and he definitely knows that a real UM team has always had a dominant defense. Will the scheme his boy likes to run create that, we’ll see. Now the one thing that he has going in his favor is, this team is going to be in real good shape physically, this is the reason kendall thompkins is actually thriving again now as well as davon johnson. Those 2 are at the top of the chain as far as when it comes to benefitting the most from the last off season work-outs, now the football mind kendall thompkins has can translate to the field physically as well too.

    Those 2 are going are going to make plays for sure. Plus they are definitely needed so the young guns don’t wear themselves down. This is going to be a real interesting year. lst year, we all saw how many times our defense got caught in bad alignments and never checked out of them. This year, “NO EXCUSES” on the communication piece and the guys who’ve been in this system for over a year now should be playing faster this year as well.

  68. All alex collins has to do is ask himself, how many successful runningback have come out of wisconsin and had productive nfl careers over how many runningbacks have come out of uconn under terry and had productive careers. We not gone even get into the UM legacy that he would be able to add his name too. Now see “Truth” miller, mike james, duke and crew do their thang thang. Hed just be another in a long line of straight runningback balla’s.

    Cal,

    It really doesn’t mean jack-sh!t whether that title game was boring or not…

    They were in a position to play for the National Championship. Something and ACC team hasn’t done since what….2G?

    And Streeter, Benji, and Millz didn’t have to worry about what the woulda done if they were playing in that game…

    Because they weren’t.

    Because the team they played on was butt.

    And because someone on either one of those defenses might’ve turned Miller’s shoulder into vanilla pudding.

    And because there’s a good chance Street and TB3 wouldn’t be able to get off Bama or LSU’s press coverage.

    And because their qbs have a knack for throwing bushels of ints, vs good defenses.

    And because our guys haven’t won a big game, against a top team, at full strength, in a billion years.

    That’s the other thing about UM that no other school has. We got players that come out of here that most people want to be like, or who set the bar/standard of what they looking for, just go down the list, JEROME BROWN, SEAN TAYLOR, irvin, bennie blades, warren sapp, ed reed, andre johnson, santana moss, reggie wayne, the list goes on. dan morgan when healthy, can’t say there was a better linebacker than him, those superbowl numbers he put up have got to be one of the sickest days a mlb hs ever had in a superbowl, playoff or regular season game.

  72. Hurriphin, don’t get caught up in the sec sac dawg. THose 2 teams were only put in their because of media hype and money. All this pretend football is about to get sat down real soon, we won’t hear to much from the sec for long. You’ll see.

    Here’s something for you to feast your eye’s on, all this sec talk is new shat. The question is, when did you get a t.v. Basically 10 years of dominating the sec by 1 school, you already know which team was dominating the 80’s, than you had 2 teams from the big 12 in th 80’s, oklahoma & nebraska ballin. So from the 90’s up to 2001 the sec was basically dominated by one team. From 2000 to 2002 You already know who was back during that time, than from 2003 to about 2006 it was back to the pac 10 & big 12 time, so again, all this sec talk being the best conference, i’d like to know what era yall talking. Ok, six straight, clap clap, but they’re winning at a time when the whole country knows Miami is not strong and Fsu is trying to climb back, congratulation to them for winning under these circumstances, but we’ll see how quick those mofo’s go back to making excuses about the reason sec teams don’t play for national titles, etc. etc. because they beat up on each other and this and that. That bama team that beat us, that had to do with dennis erickson and that garbage offense, never was a fundamentally sound offense, and creating to many big plays for defenses to blast or offensive guys. The famous, let the runningback trout out to the sidelines about 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage as if the defense was going to forget about em. The gaytors were the sec for 10 years!

  82. Six I totally agree about proper nutrition and I agree that Miami needs to get with the times in many areas. But I believe pure laziness and lack of want was much more a contributor to are lack luster years. Those kids lived in the dining hall and everyone can agree food there stinks. Nicole hated eating there and Nick had 2 bouts of food poisoning from the dining hall at U of O. Most kids don’t get the importance of proper nutrition until much later. My kids are better than most only because Mom was on Weight Watchers way too many times in the formative years :). I used to hang out with the baseball guys at Miami-Dade South way back in the day and I can’t tell you how many of those guys pitched and played hung over and did fine. Now I would never advocate it but they did. Ah the ’80’s!!!!

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

    The culture had eroded under the “thee incompetent one” than when shannon took over, he knew what the problem was, he just didn’t have the right methods to fix and create the right culture being it was his 1st time being a headcoach, same with “thee incompetent one” but it worst with that bozo because he was a backstabber and didn’t have Miami type DNA like coach goldie does.

    Coach goldie understands how to motivate players, and the players began to get more motivated because they’re seeing results so now they know the way. A guy like kendal thompkins, you can hear it in em, when he talks about he’s in the best shape ever, with that, now he can be the receiver he has the ability to be, making it look easy out their. What shannon was trying to do was recreate the work ethic environment by trying to use players like laron byrd as an example of being a hard worker, and he worked hard, but goldie is making this whole team work hard like most of the great use to do, and soon, these guys will start working out even more afte the work outs. Back to being elite again.

    The more confidence these guys have in their bodies the more better they will perform. How many times in the last 4 to 5 years it kept being said, these guys don’t have the confidence to go out there and compete because they’re not physically ready, if only we could have redshirted this one or that one. Those days are gone, if you make it in the 2 deep from here on in, you’re going to have to be not just mentally ready, but physically ready as well.

    swasey has elevated his game to match the will & determination of coach golden’s and the now the players. hardwork pays off and that will hold true this season, i’m not looking and how many wins and how many losses, of course you go out there to win every game, but when you hear coach schnelly say this is the most physically fit team he’s ever seen, lol, i’m not sure if that’s what’s in the pipe talking, but schnely don’t normally make to many empty statements.

    I can hear the confidence in coach goldie’s voice, at the same time, he’s till constantly trying to pull out greatness from the players, case in point with the tight-end position, those guys are actually playing at a high level, but he wants one of them to take it to and even higher level.

    eduardo clements will continue to be a chain mover, he understands the game, and will always be a factor out their. duke johnson is just one of those players who energizes his teammates when he steps out on that field and is just one of those players that his own teammates like to see play during the game. While it would’ve definitely had strengthen to the team if miller, vernon and streeter were still here, the guys on this team understnad it’s their time now. rashwan scott will definitely give maximum effort to be sure his play matches his words.

    Six I totally agree about proper nutrition and I agree that Miami needs to get with the times in many areas. But I believe pure laziness and lack of want was much more a contributor to are lack luster years.

    ******

    You hit a bomb with this one. Insane laziness and lack of want, plus add some sense of entitlement for some damn reason, just b/c they’re wearing the “U” on their helmet

  89. bg1906 – ah man, didn’t realize how close you are

    Posted on here that I was working the Bucs/’Skins game a couple of days ago. Got here yesterday, went to FedEx (dump), ran my ass off all over the stadium to set things up, heading back over there in about 20 mins and will be there probably until around 1:30am, then fly out back to Tampa in the morning

    I’ll be on the Bucs bench during the game

    JSQ, they might not pronounce their “R”s, but there is no R in Touchdown, Field Goal, Fumble, or Flutie.

    And without JacoRy, there will be no need to say InteRception, either.

    Six lovin the DMV…

    Go up one more and sample the Tri-State.
    Who needs the crystaline waters of Tampa, when you’ve got the rotting cespool known as The Delaware River?

  92. Dang, why all the hate on Chartwells?!?! They weren’t THAT bad.

    Canechic must have spoiled Nicole with her cooking talent.

    I thought the dining halls were pretty good! Especially the midnight breakfast served by your professors before finals!

    Not to mention these boys have dining dollars on their ‘Cane card and can eat at The Rat, anywhere in the food court, Sebastian’s Cafe, the Storm Surge Cafe, Sbarros, and they get steak and lobster the night before games.

    Just saying.

    No one is gonna starve or be malnutritioned if they have a meal plan at UM. There are a TON of nutritious options. I know, I dated an underwear model freshman year and that guy either ate like a rabbit or like he was storing for winter.

  93. Oh and CO, I love a Boston accent.

    About 97% of the dudes I have ever dated are from Boston.

    The mispronounciation of Rs really gets me going.

    And although it isn’t really relative….Why are you wielding the “Only because UM and FSU are down” card, when I thought you said that the whole, “Every team has ups & downs” bit was cynical?

    If that wasn’t you that said that…I apologize, and stand corrected.
    ////////////////////////

    To be clear on this:

    From 1980 to 1996 we had only 1 season where we lost 5 games, and only 3 season where we lost 3 games, so for 12 years we either went undefeated, lost 1 game or only 2 games but normally won the national title, played for it or won the bowl game. Over a 16 year period, where’s the up & down, than of course the sanctions hit, than we came right back 3 years later and started dominating college football again. Where is the up & down or the cyclical nature of our run or even Fsu’s run.

    Notable team recordsConsecutive wins: 34, 2000–02
    Consecutive regular season wins: 39, 2000–03
    Consecutive road wins: 20, 1984–86
    Consecutive games without being shut out: 188, 1979–94
    Consecutive shutouts of opponent: 4, 1926, 1936, 1941
    Consecutive games without a tie score: 345, 1966–95 (NCAA adopted tiebreaker in 1996)
    /////////////////////////////

    Florida St., does this look like up & down or consistent domination! 14 straight seasons in the top 5

    1987 11–1 2nd Won Fiesta
    1988 11–1 3rd Won Sugar
    1989 10–2 3rd Won Fiesta
    1990 10–2 4th Won Blockbuster
    1991 11–2 4th Won Cotton
    1992 11–1 2nd ACC champions Won Orange
    1993 12–1 1st ACC champions, National champions Won Orange
    1994 10–1–1 4th ACC champions Won Sugar
    1995 10–2 4th ACC co-champions Won Orange
    1996 11–1 3rd ACC champions Lost Sugar
    1997 11–1 3rd ACC champions Won Sugar
    1998 11–2 3rd ACC co-champions Lost Fiesta
    1999 12–0 1st ACC champions, National champions Won Sugar
    2000 11–2 5th ACC champions Lost Orange

    The point is, yall are trying to compare good programs against about the only 2 real college dynasties in college football, us and Fsu. Without us, Fsu wins more national championships. goldie like many others are not interested in winning 1 national title, he’s interested in recreating a dynasty again. That’s my whole point and the difference!

  95. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Check the 10 sec mark.

    Some little porky meatball rolls in to the scene.

    Weird…

    He might have pissed himself at the 2:25 mark.

    Crazy little beachball.

    Saturday can not get here fast enough……

  97. LOL! JSQ like I said those kids eat. Nicole just wasn’t a fan, she had the minimum plan and I did spoil mine. They always had 3 square meals, not much junk food and a family sit down dinner every night. With both being away we skype almost every night and eat dinner together :). They are creatures of habit and you know how when you get an idea set as to how your meal should be it sticks forever. They both love that they no longer have a meal ticket and can make their own food :). Nick really is a better cook than Nicole….shhhhh (she won’t like that I said that)

    How’s about something I trust your observation on, a little more?

    What do you think about JCC Jr and Martinez? I might even pay for that one.

    Canez1, just make sure you don’t get caught in the replays, our last nutpunch made it on ESPN and earned our guy a suspension.

    The nutpunching was one of last years highlights. We need more of that

    Micanor Regis is still on roster for Atlanta. Might or might not make it through the last cut. But if you’re a DT that makes it and gets cut on the 53, there’s a good chance you might get picked up or even put on a practice squad.

    Just goes to show the real lack of development and coaching up. Leadership and coaching are the key and we’ve been amateur hour for the last 8 years.

    NO, the sec luv fest ends here. The way some of yall keep defending the sec reminds of how a heard these females say about some guys before “he’s a faggot but just don’t know it yet”. In other words, some of yall are zct like sec fans but just don’t know you are yet”.

    Yall are starting to sound like the media as if the sec is the standard for football and forget, we set the standard for how football is suppose to be played.
