Relief, joy for Canes: big Seantrel Henderson (looking trim) is back with team and at practice

The ending to the newest Seantrel Henderson saga is a good one for the University of Miami and its football fans. Henderson, UM's 6-8, 340-pound right tackle, returned last night to the team and addressed his teammates.

He's out there now on Monday at practice No. 4, and looks really good -- as trim and fit as I can ever remember seeing him. He can't wear pads yet, but he was doing blocking drills this morning for the 15 minutes of media viewing -- and sprinting from drill to drill.

His teammates seemed genuinely happy to have him back, and the offensive linemen are relieved as well.

"It's good to have him back,'' said UM coach Al Golden. "We'll see where he's at in terms of going through the acclimation process and then we'll go from there. He's got to go through helmets [and shorts, without pads] for two days.

"You guys are the only ones talking about it. There's no one else talking about it. He was away at his friend's funeral. He came back yesterday, went to all the meetings last night and now we're moving forward.

"Again, we're just trying to improve. He started two games and played 200 plays last year. That's like a lost year. We're trying to improve on what he did last year."

Golden said Henderson has to go through all the conditioning tests that his teammates recently conquered. "This is not the NFL where you just show up and go out and practice. You gotta do two days in helmets, you gotta do compliance items, you've got to fill out all these different forms. That's why we take a whole day to process everybody. It's going to take a while for him.

"We got a lot done yesterday, now we've got to get him transitioned here.''

"Just to have him back and see his smiling face always makes us all happy,'' said guard Jonathan Feliciano. "He brings us up. It's going to create a lot more competition."

Fifth-year senior receiver Kendal Thompkins called Henderson "a real big part of the team.

"We know the talent he brings to the team, and his personality, man. He's a cool guy and he's a funny guy to be around. Just to feel his presence again is a good feeling.''

Just an FYI, Manny

Thank you pseudologic, this Dick that is on here at 1:30 in the morning, 10:00 at night, and 8:00 in the morning stealing IDs and trying to disrupt discussion on here has no life, and has no right to tell Canes fans to shut up on a Canes blog.

Hey gatorspammer, let me guess, you didn't write that one, too? Yeah right, you have been nothing but disgusting and rude in here daily since nobody wanted to read your garbage where it belongs, on Gator Clause.

You don't even have the excuse that your blog is dead, because Matt Watts is putting stuff out there again, and you have posted there. Now, you can go there in peace, or we will choose to do the same to Gator Clause that you have been doing to this board, and NEITHER will be fun to read.

So choose, do you back off, stop with the insults and trolling, or do you get a little payback on your boards, troll?

How do you know Watts is posting on Gator clause and that gatorsam has been there?
To this I say
STFU 5 titles

Because I was going there to see if they were still dead, before telling him to go back to his dead site, and saw that it had been revived, and that he had commented there.

It's not that tough, you know.

Who cares

$14 million in missing medicine. I guess lack of
institutional control is not just prevalent in the athletic department.

There is no institutional control at Miami. We will announce the penalties soon and give the players ample time to transfer without having to sit out a year.

Back off. Stop stealing names. This blog is for the children. mongrel. Stop posting as me at 1:30 in the morning you tool.

Yawn. gatorspammer, your jokes are old and lame, and stealing of IDs is old and lame, too.

Looks like you WANT Gator Clause to get destroyed again.

I could care less, but you make the choice, don't complain later about the consequences, troll.

Stop elfing on here you mongrel. There are consequences to actions. watch for the signs silly nerd.

Who cares
