« Former Bethune-Cookman star catcher O'Brien enrolled at UM, seeking waiver to play | Main | Even with suspensions, D'Onofrio says he isn't scaling back Canes defense for Maryland »

Quick practice report -- Herbstreit extra

Because of the craziness of the past two weeks, media access, understandably, has been altered a few times. This morning, we originally were supposed to get players and coach Al Golden before practice, as we usually do, but that session was changed to early afternoon.

UM has said the eight players suspended by the NCAA for Monday's opener at Maryland are allowed to practice. I do know the five who were suspended for one game were all out there -- quarterback Jacory Harris, linebacker Sean Spence, receiver Travis Benjamin, defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive end Adewale Ojomo.

Not sure about  Dyron Dye, Olivier Vernon and Ray-Ray Armstrong -- they WERE in their position meetings this morning and probably practicing, too.  I do know that Aldarius Johnson, who has been suspended indefinitely and not expected back, was not out there.

Safety A.J. Highsmith was with the defense for the 15 minutes we're allowed to watch. Al Golden said yesterday that A.J. would be the third quarterback against Maryland.

Also, Tommy Streeter, who had a really good fall camp, is now wearing a yellow noncontact jersey. He was running around on the field, however, with his position group early on. Golden had mentioned a couple days ago that he had some type of injury.

HERBIE WEIGHS IN

   I caught some of ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit on WQAM this morning. He was basically amazed at all the allegations included in the Yahoo! Sports report, and said he thought UM players fared very well with the NCAA considering the allegations. He said he felt very bad for Golden. Who doesn't?

   He also said he believes if Stephen Morris has a great game on Monday, he should stay in as the quarterback for Ohio State. Coach Golden said yesterday he will reopen the qb competition after Maryland, in fairness to Jacory, who basically was scaled back after he was declared ineligible.

    "Based on what we saw the last couple years and watching Stephen Morris last year play, if he goes in based on what has happened with the suspensions and he plays well I think to me there would be no reason to go with anyone else but Stephen Morris the next week.''

Good report Susan.
If we win at maryland then Morris is the man for the year. Noodle arm is a good backup.
AJ needs to go. No wonder he is suspended with his attitude and the mother, good gracious the apple does not fall far from the tree.
And as always

Fire SHALALALALALA NOW

If it aint't broke don't fix it! If Sammy is nothing short of spectacular at Maryland, then Sammy for the rest of the year. Good luck Hilarious Aldarious. Next man please.

CANE4LIFE

Guys the worst is yet to come. Some guest on WQAM said that there is some sort of gamblimg investigation that is going on thats will rock the UM program and something about there are maybe more boosters who allegedly payed the players for big hits, sacks etc. He was some sort of gambling guru guest or whatever but the feds are currently investigating and he pretty much said these allegations are going to dismantle the program. Gino and Steve didnt even want him to elaborate on what he was talking about like good hosts should do. Were really in for it! Im just the messenger I hope its not true but if it is you heard it here first from me.

I heard it too but so what - We got swagga til the end.

I heard it too. Ugh! Hearing him say that was a killer. I couldnt tell if he was full of it though to get some publicity or if he was serious. Gino didnt seem to take him too seriously though.

!!!WARNING!!! maryland, ohio state, kansas state, bethune-cookman, virginia tech, north carolina, georgia tech, virginia, duke, florida state, usf, and boston college....IT'S HURRICANE SEASON, b#+ches!!!

Now Gambling? Underage drinking? Prostitution? Bounties? Coaches on the make? Recruiting violations? Police protection? The Feds involved? IRS audits?

Where does it end?

Ryan Williams hardship waiver??

MMOOOOOOOOORRRISSS

MMOOOOOOOOORRRISSS

GIVE US SOME MOOOORE....MMOOOOOOOORRRISS!!!


This should be Stephen Morris's new chant. Let me know what you think. Imagine a whole stadium chanting this.

Fire the hobbit!!!

FIRE THE HOBBIT!!!

FIRE THE HOBBIT!!!!

I appreciate Edsall's kind and professional words to Golden in reference to everything that has happened as of late, but I feel bad for him that his first test as the head coach will be against a team who's second string guys are better than his first string guys.

Go Canes!!!!!!!!

WHY, ARE CONFERENCES SEC,PAC 10 ALLOWED BY THE
NCAA TO RAID OTHER CONFERENCES FOR TEAMS,BUT
INDIVIDUAL TEAMS CAN NOT DO IT FOR PLAYERS?

Good point Jack!

Now will anybody, I don't care who, give us some input on what's the story with Ryan Williams QB, Kevin Grooms RB/DB, Taylor Gadbois OT, and Kinard LB?

I think that guy was talking to boost his ratings, every five seconds he was plugging his outlets. Guys in the betting business have inside leaks about a lot of things if those guys are gone(which I hope) then its going to be hard to prove.

This program WILL BE SHUT DOWN after this season. Count on it. The sports media and the NCAA want this, and FSU and UF are pushing for it as they will profit from it. Enjoy this season because the Canes will be gone for good after this season. Thank Shalala, Dee, and the bottom-feeder known as Clint Hurtt (who should be banned from coaching for good)!

Everyone saying this school should be banned for good needs to take a hard educated look at ALL the scandals that have occurred in college sports. UM football has 1, yes only one major sanction(Pell Grant) you have programs with multiple MAJOR infractions. NCAA does not want to bury a money maker like UM, FSU and UF don't want it, for recruits... it's over all not good for the game, taking away UM, would be like taking away a major fighter in the height of boxing, won't happen!

We are getting beat up by everyone who hates the U. Can we for a moment as fan stop beating up the U as well? Let's get through this "U"nited and then start nit picking.

What makes me an idiot? Im just reporting what I heard on the radio internet tough guy!

Program shut down at the end of the season?

Let's be clear. ncca has investigated for 6 months now. Look at the suspensions. This does not sound like shut down to me. Does it? Or maybe they want the slow death because of the hatred towards US. Everyone, even the herald, hates US, so initially this would have been a lot worse. Come on! No one, but US wants The Canes to even win ONE game. A felon and a yahoo, non substantiated report has increminated us. espn and the boys can't wait to weigh in their dislike of The U every hour. Sports Illustrated wrote the silliest article in the history of journalism to UM's President. It really read like a 4th grader wrote it! THE REAL PROBLEM WILL BE IF WE WIN. Mark my word. If we come out 5-0, THEN, the s--- will hit the fan. WE ALL KNOW IT! GET READY UM FANS.

If 6 months of ncaa investigation and now some more slime crawling out about gambling will be admissable, THEN SHUT IT DOWN NOW, YOU FNNNNNN IDIOTS! You are a joke anyway.

If not, let's play ball. CANE BALL, which is hard hitting, in your face, kick your ass, and apologize later football. You don't like it, SHUT THE PROGRAM DOWN... and watch the LAWSUITS FLY! GO CANES!!!!

Lets go Teddy Bri gdewater...... Ill b watching tonight

is it just me or is anybody else getting sick of any espn analysts take on Miami or any team for that matter.

because herby played below average for ohio stank he gets to get paid to say the same things as everybody else who reads the paper.

it's ridiculous.

all you need is manny, susan and papa cane and you'll know whats going on, for real.

i only follow manny and papa cane on twitter and i have been more informed than herby and the genius that said jarret lee would be starting for miami on mon. night.

this is because stupid fans can't get enough of their teams and have to salivate over people that have no idea about their team on espn.

espn is bad for sports. however i love watching the canes so i have to play in this monopoly as well.

GREAT POST JARED!

Finally! Turned off esPEE PEE n last week. Yes Herby the pretty boy has been very nasty about the Canes. Story Jumpers EVERYWHERE! Worried about this year? Hummmmm? Should be concerning ohio plate.

I honestly believe that a pissed off CANE TEAM is much more dangerous than it was before. I also KNOW, that Golden has directed this Team's intensity internally. This is a VERY SMART Coach.

If we are the hated Canes of Miami, let's take some aggression out on the Teams that we play. After all.... we are thugs.

GO CANES!!!!! Forever!!!!!

Remove ESPN.com from your bookmarks and stop watching Sportscenter. Your life will change for the better. There are plenty of other outlets to get your sports information. The Feldman fiasco should have been the last straw for anyone who thought ESPN had any redeeming qualities.

billb: You are one huge idiot! Go back to your trailer park in gayturdville and leave the cane program alone...what a jerk!

Gambling,IRS,What's going on? I didn't hear about all of this. I hope it's not true. I see the haters are out for the Canes. Dang if people want to talk about auditing teams they need to take a look @ Fl.State,Clemson,Oklahoma & more. I tell some people ever school is doing what Miami has done. All Schools are taking money and doing all kinds of crap for their student athletes. But why my team Miami? And what is up with Kevin Grooms,Kinard,Gabois? I'm not hearing anything postive from them so what's the story on them? Miami I tell you y'all is messing up down there real bad. Seems like I won't be bragging about a Championship no time soon. Fire everyone down in Miami except for football coaches & basketball coaches.

I love the comment the U football will be shut down for good. How educated these trolls are. You do realize that the "Death Penalty" doesn't shut down a program for good. SMU, the only team to ever get the "Death Penalty" was shut down by the NCAA for 1 season. They voluntarily sat out a second season because they didn't feel they had the resources to suit up a competitive team in year 2.

Also understand that they were implicated from top to bottom with multiple university personnel, board members, and coaches involved in the scandal. None of this has been proven at the U. We will certainly receive a bowl ban (probably 3 years) and we will have a reduction in scholarships, but we will carry on and when this is behind us, you better be ready, because the U will be back and we will have a chip on our shoulder. Be afraid trolls, be very afraid.

It is pathetic that the lizards and semiholes have to come on this site to spread lies! There are so many trolls trying to spread lies that it is sickening. Don't you have a life! Remember that what goes around comes around! Both schools are and will continue to be under NCAA investigation. The main one the the booster payoff to Pouncey which give lizards the death penalty - not to mention the 32+ arrests when Urbancries was coach and all well publicised. That's why he quit.

SMU, was on probation multiple times when the NCAA lowered the boom on the program! They were doing the same violations that got them on probation multiple times before! This is one investigation that has not come to light(fully), it seems as if there were higher ups involved, but they were circumventing the system. It really sucks for the program to get smashed by the NCAA, for a few rotten assistants.

Some of you fans are either stupid is or stupid does. For all the flack JaCory Harris gets it's a damn shame. This guy did what his coaches told him to do, go deep. JaCory is second on the the all time list behind Ken Dorsey. Some of you dumb arse freaks act like like your memory is short. Ken Dorsey threw the ball to nothing but first round draft picks and handed the ball off to nothing but first round draft picks and lost a total of about what 2 games in his career at UM. Jacory is right there behind him with far less supporting cast of receivers and running backs. You stupid pricks praise the Coach Golden one many then second guess the man the next. If Golden wants to open the competition back up that should tell you rocket scientists something about what Golden sees in Jacory. Watch film of both quarterbacks and you will see. Jacory problem was not throwing deep( his deep balls are on target and pretty, just look at the FSU or OU game two years ago) Jacory problem was that the safeties played deep all the time because UM didn't have a home run hitter in the backfield. 2011 introduces the college football world to a much improved OL and a HOME RUN HITTER from any where on the field by the name of Lamar Miller(4.2 speed. Opposing teams will have to bring their safeties up or Lamar is going to the house. Stephen Morris is also a excellent QB, but he had problem with underneath routes ( not reading LB's)most of his picks came underneath by LB's. Sean Spence took one to the house during camp. So if Coach Golden( the coach everyone loves) says open the contest after the Maryland game. Please Please so-called die hard fans have faith in Coach's ability to see and judge talent. Just do your part and by tickets and support whoever Coach Golden decides is the BEST QB for HIS CANES........

great post swaggalikus.

My question is if we were doing all of those things what were FSU and UF doing those years. Because the majority of those ten years, they were ranked ahead of us in recruiting. Why doesn't anybody mention this?

whats next,a cane shot kennedy???..sports illustrated wants the U banned sooo bad they're probably behind all the new bull...

Swaggalikeus, wicked post! canedude1 your nuts for that one, Kennedy shot by Cane....wow!

BORING..............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................BORING

The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Why do I scroll past the article? Great report by the way Susan.
Reading this crap is like looking at an accident or picking a scab, I just can't stop.
The 5% of intelligent people on here are definitely dumber for having read or participated in this crap.
At least I don't actually pay money for this dribble anymore but I really need to look for a supprot group or get a lobtomoy.

I go with USMC Cane. Lay off with personal comments about Jacory. Poor coaching, a high risk O, and poor play calling took its toll on both QBs. If he gets an opportunity, he will do very well this year. The same folks who trash JH will trash Morris if he throws 4 INts against MD. One reason this will NOT happen is Fish will keep the O focused and under control.

WE ARE...THUG U !!!!

Swaggabaloney. Noodle arm is not a hood qb. He does not have the intelligence to be a qb, that we have already seen. As General Oneray said in LA, we can't be stuck on stupid.
The only reason he says to open the qb again is to keep noodle arms dad quiet, we have already suffered through mama Johnsons outrage.
