Holmes headlines UM injury report

The University of Miami released its injury/extremity report as usual Thursday.

The biggest news? The ‘Canes will probably be without defensive tackle Josh Holmes, who is listed as doubtful. Holmes missed the Florida State and Duke game, before returning to action in UM’s 33-10 win over North Carolina. Holmes has started all five games he has played in this season.

The surprising news? Left tackle Orlando Franklin isn't on the list. But that doesn't mean he'll play a lot. Franklin was seen limping around during practice after getting hurt near the North Carolina game. Freshman Seantrel Henderson took a lot of snaps this week at left tackle.

Here is the complete extremity list...

Probable
CB Brandon McGee (Lower extremity)
- McGee didn't play against North Carolina, but did play in the previous six games. He is primarily a nickel and dime corner.

Questionable
QB A.J. Highsmith (Upper extremity)
- The plan is to try and redshirt Highsmith before probably moving him to the secondary next season. He's been wearing a protective thing on his wrist. 

Doubtful
DL Josh Holmes (Lower extremity)
- The Hurricanes are deep enough where this isn't really a big deal. Marcus Forston, Micanor Regis will just have to play more.

Out
OL Joel Figueroa – Lower extremity
DT Curtis Porter – Lower extremity
- Figueroa hasn't played since the Clemson game. He was having a really tough season anyway. Porter only played against Ohio State and is on a path toward a redshirt.

lets go canes... we need more dancing on saturday... we are thirsty for more swagger... we don't want to win against UVA.. we want them to beg for mercy from the 305......looking forward to nice VA weather on saturday......come out people there are plenty of tickets left

Um, you realize that that leaves Miami with 3 DTs that can play right? Bailey will have to play half the game at DT instead of only a handful of snaps. It would definitely be a problem if Holmes is out for any extended period of time.

But on an other note, why are there so little news and so little activity on the recruiting front for Miami? Everywhere I look is FSU, UF, Alabama, Nebraska, etc etc getting commits form 4, 5 star players here and there. From UM...Nothing. No new verbals, no new commitments. Only that eli Rogers decommitted and TB may follow. What about the whole "Randy is a good recruiter thing"?

Lets keep it going, Win and keep moving forward toward a big match up with VT and GT in a few weeks. Take care of Biz this weekend and don't take UVA for granted. Remember 2007! No trap game this weekend.

Miami shipped the latrines to Trailerville to use in the local cafeteria. Trailertrash are used to eating trash from waste receptacles.

A "protective thing?"

As regards recruiting, I do not know 100% if this is the issue, but I know that due to high recruiting numbers the past several years and getting a couple of late recruits last year (I know that Latwan Anderson was really a track scholarship)that UM has something like 15 scholarships to give out this year, so they are being very selective. Again, someone may have more knowledge on the subject.

We only have about 12 scholly's wnad we have to use them properly.

I got a simple question to ask. If anyone from the ACC finally goes undefeated (conference and nonconference games) bringing parity to the ACC do they deserve an automatic bid to play in the BCS Championship?

Dumb question, if someone goes undefeated then that means they win ACC championship which means automatic BCS bowl entry

THE REASON WHY I YOU DON'T SEE A LOT OF STOCK PILING OF RECRUITS BY MIAM I IS THAT COACH SHANNON IS A COACH WHO LOOKS AFTER THE PLAYER FIRST AND THE UM SECOND. WE HAVE A LOT OF UNDERCLASSMEN CO MING BACK AND THAT ALONE TELLS A POWERFUL STORY. RECRUITS ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THEY ARE WHEN THEY ARE O THE FIELD. YOU KEEP THEM TO LONG ON THE BENCH AND MOST WILL LOSE THEIR CONFIDENCE. COACH SHNNON TRIES TO BUILD CONFIDENCE, NOT TEAR IT DOWN. PSALMS 48.1

RICK.... I hope you are right. Deuter 31:6
