Barney hurt, Dixon returns

Randy Shannon told reporters after the team's second practice Thursday that left guard Chris Barney, a 6-5, 345-pound redshirt junior, suffered an injury and is expected to miss four to six weeks. Barney had been practicing with the first team offensive line, even though most expected Orlando Franklin to win the starting job. The injury was not disclosed.

Chris_barney"It may go into the season, we just don't know right now. The doctors will let me know, it may be four to six weeks, I don't know," Shannon said. "It's something that happened at practice. It's what it happens in camp. We got Orlando [Franklin], Fig [Joel Figueroa], Gunn [Harland Gunn], what's my buddy's name [A.J. Trump]. So, we still got four guys that played some and got some quality work in. You got to move on.

"It's bad for him because he'd been coming along, he dropped a lot of weight and he'd been doing great in practice. Whatever time it takes him to come back he's got to just start over and just get back into the groove of what he's doing."

> Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, who was sent to the hospital Wednesday after suffering illness from the heat, attending practice in shorts and a t-shirt, but did not practice. Shannon said he expects Dixon to be back in time for Saturday night's scrimmage, the first of the fall, along with linebacker Arthur Brown (who did not practice at all Thursday and was seen limping). Marcus Forston participated in the afternoon practice Thursday.

> Shannon said the quarterbacks will receive an equal amount of snaps during Saturday's scrimmage.

> Shannon said Matt Bosher connected on a 45-yard field with three seconds left during a two-minute drill. Shannon said if the season started today, Bosher would be the kicker.

> Of Taylor Cook, who is participating in the punting competition, Shannon said he needs to get used to the speed of the college game.

I don't have the time, nor the patience to babysit the people who ruin this blog with profanity and name calling. So, when I start to see it, I'm just deleting the entire catalog of posts. Don't like it? Get lost. I'm not here to tolerate fifth grade behavior. Too many other good people do not post on my blog because they get turned off by the village idiots. You know who you are.

That's just rich. And this 86 guy is prominent over on Lame Space? That says it all. Back away from the keyboard 86...BACK AWAY

Thanks for the update Manny.

thanks for the update.

Wow, Manny's quicker to edit his blog than he is to update it!

How has D barry looked???

Appreciate the blogposts -- though you're right the "crap" is offputting. Maybe you should talk to a guy in your IT department about blocking IP addresses from the recurrent abusers.

I would think Barney got an MRI today...So what is the story? Anyone knows?

Taylor Cook punting??? Why not put him at TE?

Kenny Phillips looked great for the Giants yesterday....where was that effort last year?

Maybe its a culture thing...I've only watched UM practice once....I wonder if we've got enthusiasm like that. Guys hyperventalating because of excitment is a good sign.

Does this mean that 86 is banned?

Thanks for the update Manny. Keep us posted.

M.H...let it go, can't U get the message? Manny wants the blog to be about the Canes and Canes only, not ANYTHING else. We ALL should support that initiative. I know I do.

Manny:

Q: Any update on Barney's injury or Sharpton's knee injury?

Q: Is the media allowed to watch the scrimmage Saturday? If so, will U be there?

GO CANES!

M.H...let it go, can't U get the message?

SELF-INCRIMINATION

We ALL should support that initiative. I know I do.

do as I say NOT as I do ...

HYPOCRISY

I'll remind you, when your NOT talking Canes sports.

Why carry crap over and dump it in Manny's yard?
I don't get the reasoning behind sabotaging a guy that has been nothing but good to everybody?

peace

Damn, Manny laid down the law on his blog. Good for him, too many fools running around.

U got that right! I tried to fix things over there today but green and MH are already at it again. I'm just not going to get into it again. I feel sorry for Manny having to police the blog constantly and stuck with some idiots over there.

The nerve of you, trying to say that you tried to fix ANYTHING. You have NO right to police this blog...only Manny and the Miami Herald does. Nobody here posts obscenities, like you allow at Canespace, in the name of sports. You did the exact same thing on the SS....Is it a coincidence, that you are disliked on both blogs? Is everyone else crazy but you? Even Shandel asked you to stay on your blog, and mind your own business.
Who are YOU to decide what is right and what is wrong? Canespace has great bloggers, but you ruin it.
In your exuberance, to create a profitable blog, you forgot about diversity, which limits, who goes there. And you can't stand the fact that the Herald and Sentinel, are picking up those posters.
Manny and Shandel, do a terrific job, and do NOT need your help.

Go Canes.

Olympic ceremonies starting

YOU TELL'EM MH.

Mark my words........ G86 will be the downfall of this blog.

M.H. eviscerates mother goose : )

little miss muffet, sat on a tuffet
eating her curds and whey
along came a spider, who sat down beside her
and frightened miss muffet away

Why carry crap over and dump it in Manny's yard?

peace
