Tuesday morning practice

Miami quarterback Jacory Harris, who hurt his left shoulder (non-throwing side) when he was sacked at Pittsburgh Thursday night, was out there at practice early this morning (Tuesday) throwing passes. Have no idea if he's 100-percent (on the left side), but it has to be a good sign that he was out there.

Seantrel Henderson, the nation's top recruit (this past year) out of Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul, Minnesota, was practicing at right tackle with the first team. Henderson is a 6-8, 355-pound beast on the field, and he has been used lately in goal-line and short-yardage situations. When Henderson is in there, the Red Sea parts. But he hasn't been in Coral Gables that long and he still has a lot of learning to do with his new offense, so he has been carefully used. It will be interesting to see how much playing time he gets at Clemson, which is the loudest stadium I've been in and could create havoc for UM's offense.

Seriously, it is LOUD.

The noise was deafening the last time UM played at Clemson, in 2005. I still remember Kenny Phillips -- then a freshman -- making the game-saving interception in triple-overtime. One of the most exhilarating games I've covered.

Back to practice: Sophomore cornerback Brandon McGee was on the sideline with his lower-left leg propped up on his helmet as he was examined by a trainer. It appears that he might have injured his left ankle or around there. He got up and walked gingerly to where the DBs were practicing. We left practice shortly afterward.

Seantrel is showing what it is to be a player at the U.... come in, compete, and work your way into the lineup.

We need more competitors like him on this team.

Any updates on Dyrone Dye, Streeter or Storm?

They are M.I.A.

Great to see Seantrel practicing with the First Team!!! Hopefully it stays that way.

I hope Henderson picks it up quickly. The running game has been adequate to date but if he can figure it all out and we can run the ball better then the rest of the offense will fall into place. Here's hoping.

Go Canes!

its good that seantrel is getting in there, maybe figueroa will get his head out his @ss and start playing like a senior

How is Mr. Interception doing?

Better than your QB.....

Harris - #43

Brantley - #63

Wish we were playing Purdue this week. I'd love to see the D-Line rock the grill of Robert Marve.

If the D-Line shows up against Clemson, we win. Plain and simple.

Anybody know what happend to Vaughn Telemaque? That dude is MIA.

John Brantley isn't even the best qb on hisown team

Manny or anyone,

Two questions:

1. Why isn't Streeter getting on the field? He was highly touted coming out of NW and is tall and fast. We could use that combo on Jacory's bombs. Hard to believe that this guy can't contribute.

2. Has Lamar Miller's emergence made Mike James the forgotten man? Weren't they all supposed to split playing time?

Thanks

I have been askin the gator trolls what happened to that NFL arm brantley has?? or reloading as they said was gonna happen, even though they have never done it before??

P.S another NFL game last night and the U representing as always, good job Olsen

Better get Henrson on the field. Jacket can only be driven into the turf so many times. Is he 100%? if he goes down it's game over. Season done.

How on earth did my device's predictive text change Jacory to "Jacket?"

JACORY can only be driven into the turf so many times. Watching him getting pile-drived is getting old.

Allright CANES players, fans and critics - the game at CLEMSON, I believe is the true test for Us. They match up well with our speed and athleticism. They had a week off, after the Auburn game. They'll be rested, and they got a good QB over there. That said, I agree that this game is going to be won or lost on the D-side of the ball...ours and theirs'...if our D can continue to play the way they have thus far...we will win this game. But we got to be disciplined...Clemson does not Spiller anymore, but they do have speed. They got a formidable D-Line as well. Special teams...looking like we got something there we haven't had since Hester ( did it again last night ) was wearing the U on his back. JH no ints..please...get rid of the ball, eat it, or try scrambling out for some positive yardage...just no INTS PLEASE. We love our CANES, this is going to be a tough, hard fought, smashmouth football game in their house...but you know what...WE LIKE IT LIKE THAT!! Let's play it all day long, each and every play to the whistle. God Bless...and we'll see all my CANE brethren on OCT 9th...FSU. Got my tix today!!!

J12 stinks, if J12 goes down the season is over...a little schizo...Neither are true, we have a very solid team. What Acc QB would you rather have instead of J12...I say none. Ponder, maybe but I do not see much of an imporvment, if any. He certainly stunk at OKL.Threw some INTS against BYU. Nationally the world is saying the Pitt win was impressive. Only U fans are trashing it...strange. The U will beat Clemson by 10 - 17...maybe more. Look for at least 3 sacks by the D.

I will be in Clemson on Saturday ready to kick some tiger a**. For that to happen we need to protect Jacory and give Parker hell on the other side. Pretty simple. The lines will decide the game because there will be athletes all over the field everywhere else.

Great to finally see that Shannon is not waiting for next season to try and get Sentreal some PT when he cant be any worse than what Figs and Johnson have shown and that playing time this year will pay off big time next year. Put Figs back at guard and slide Brandon Washington to center because we are still not getting enough push up front and i think Horn is the weak link and reason why. Miller needs more carries and Mike James needs to be used more at fullback catching short passes out the backfield for first downs which will also help Jacory with his INT bug. Would also like to see us keeping using the no huddle and get more recievers on the field with the no huddle like Thompkins and Streeter in some 5 wide reciever sets since we are so deep at WR and Jacory plays better in the shotgun. No way any team can keep up with us if we go 5 WRs

Y'all talk about Hester (amazing) and Olson last night. Everybody forget about the unrestricted free agent SAM SHIELDS. Yeah, No. 37 for Green Bay. Hey Gayturds, he is a STARTER. He was clutch for Green Bay. Shut down corner (although I hated to see him takle Hester-kind of weird).

I guess that's why they call us NFLU, the university that develops players for the NFL.

The NFL pipeline ceased long ago. That's a FACT JACK.

Really? Jon Beason, B Merriweather, Kenny Phillips, Rocky Mac, Olsen, Hester, etc.. Here are a few players that have been drafted/productive players w/in the last 5 years.

The NFL pipeline ceased long ago. That's a FACT JACK.

Really? Sam played for UM last year. Played for Green Bay last night.

Yeah im tired of living in the past and these players have to earn there own legacy. We have 3 first round picks from what i have been reading on the draft boards with Bailey as a top 10 pick, Brandon Harris as a top 20 and Franklin has shot up in the top 30 also. Hankerson has turned himself into a second round pick for sure also. Next year Forston, Spence, Ray Ray, Lamar Miler, Travis Benjamin, and Vernon could all have first round potential. Forston was the only 1 out of those guys though that they said will be a top 15 pick in 2012...

Posted by: Dr. Pinkus | September 28, 2010 at 02:09 PM

More like Dr. Dooshbag. Alabama is going to gut the gators Saturday. That's a FACT JACK

Also watch out for Andrew Smith to shoot up draft boards with his quick first step. Next year absolute has to be a championship and we need to win out the rest of our games this year and we could be ranked #1 next year in a year i believe is championship or bust and i hope Brandon Harris comes back for his senior year to accomplish the goal of winning a championship. The talent is clearly back and we just have to keep coaching these guys up.

I just read all the blogs: just one sticks out, the one about what the heck happened to Telemaque? Who knows? I personally think he's scared. I do know that if he doesn't step it up, opposing teams will have a field day.

Jacory won't throw any picks on saturday, jump balls will be thrown to Laron or Aldarius not Benjamin, and he will not underthrow Benjamin on that corner route anymore...Miami 35; Clemson 21

Gotta apologize to my Cane family on this board. I mentioned Sam Shields and NFLU, and I guess I brought the curse out. You see, anything positive about The U, and the Gayturds start screaming. We say its a Cane Thin. I guess they call it a Jealously Thing. Sorry Gayturds, we've been doing this for years. Urban Cryer & Co., just the past couple years. Sorry, we're just better than you. Like I say, if Randy goes 1-11, I am a CANE 4 LIFE!!

Now let's bring this conversation back to "U"s. Can we agree that the key to this game is dominant line play (Can we move Bailey inside and perhaps start Smith on one end opposite Vernon). Put Fig back at gaurd so he can use that nastiness on the inside. I think Seantrell will be fine Saturday (from what I hear he's a serious student of the game). I think we'll get off to a quick start, I just hope we can maintain it. Also, it's time for Laron and/or Aldarious to have a big game, we know Hankerson will show up.

Not for nothing put Jacory has got to be one of the worst Qb's. We should have kept Marve atleast he has a rocket for an arm rather then tossing it up and hoping one of our stud WR's makes a play.
Maybe that crap flies in college or against weak squads like Pitt and Fam U but he lost the game for us against Oh st and it could happen again when we play teams that have play makers.
I mean come on what kind of top Qb just throws it up there. Throw it like a man put some zip on the ball. I am not happy just glad our D, RB's and WR are super good.

hey jesse, how many collegiate games has marve won?? are you him or blind??

testing

Great because Joel Figuerora was getting pushed in the backfield like a blocking sled. Stop with the freshman crap and put this kid in the game. The O-Line needs to lower their pad level and drop their butts to keep pass rushers at bay. Come off the ball faster and stay with their blocks on runs and we'll be back to being The U

Bruce Johnson is a baller for NYG. oh and Jesse you're not intelligent. Just stop. Also Curse please please please shut the f@@k up. Thank you.

That's what you do when you lack the arm strength to make those long throws. You loft it to get the distance you need. Why ANYONE is still debating his obvious lack of arm strength is baffling

or you can be like brantley and just fumble it

J12 stinks, if J12 goes down the season is over...a little schizo...Neither are true, we have a very solid team. What Acc QB would you rather have instead of J12...I say none.

to be honest, i would much rather have kyle parker or christian ponder at quarterback. jacory has too many flaws in his game in my opinion. (but he's the best we got so...) no arm strength, frail build, lack of mental toughness, doesnt go through his progressions, bad feel for the pocket, inexplicably bad decisions, etc. dont get me wrong, i love jacory and i want to see him succeed but im just not seeing the progress i expected in his junior year. and this is coming from one of the few, if not only, objective cane fans on here.

Ooster, I'm definitely feeling some of your comments. I still feel like Whipple is holding him back with calling too many deep throws, not calling enough '0' routes with the rbs flanked out or with the quick wrs benjamin/thompkins. Also he doesn't give Jacory the option to audible at the LOS. He's not using Jacory's strengths.

Nor the team's stremghts. Send the big, fast wrs on streaks and deep posts, not the smallest. Whipple is good, but he also deserves some blame for the underachieving.

HELLO!...Undrafted free agents, Miami's Randy Phillips and Sam Shields, Bruce Jophnson not only made their teams they are playing regularly. Jimmy Graham, played one year and makes the Saints roster and All 32 NFL teams had scouts at the UM/Pitt game. Beside maybe two Pitt Panthers who do you think they were there to see? LMAO What a bunch of ignorant posts by wannabe CANES.


Based on what I read here from Gator bloggers...
It is clear to me now that the Alachua County Detention center allows inmates internet priviledges.

Gatard trash, especially the blog Pig/ Dr. Pigus, isnobsessed with the Canes.

Cames on your mind 24/7. Of course that is what happens when a bloated unattractive slob of a UFelony program (think Khloe Kardashian) is jealous of the attractive, successful Canes (think Kim Kardashian).

You have been gutted again, Pig.
