Duke Johnson named ACC Rookie of the Week

Duke Johnson was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week Tuesday.

Johnson was one of two true freshmen to start in Miami’s 41-32 win at Boston College. He had 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns on only seven carries, posting the most yards on the ground by a UM true freshman since Javarris James ran for 148 against Houston in 2006.

Johnson scored his career-first touchdown on a 54-yard run in the second quarter and added a 56-yard score in the third quarter. He tallied a team-high 214 all-purpose yards (135 rush, 10 receiving, 69 kick return).

"He's a tremendous player. What else can you say? He had a good first outing," UM coach Al Golden said. "I think he's level headed. I think he prepared the same way today as he did last week.

"I don't follow what the other teams are doing. But I thought Duke's effort should put him in the other realm -- above the rookies. To be able to do that on the road in your first game, he should be compared to anybody in the league, not just the rookies. And I thought Ereck Flowers clearly grading out at 94 percent in your first start, taking 75 snaps is exceptional."

CANE FOOL SAYS WHAT: Gators had trouble with DIVISION 6 BOWLING GREEN, or whoever the h*ll they played.

Sorry A*S CLOWN, that's what you are.

Typical Gay-turd SKANK.

BAMA DESTROYS MICHIGAN HOPEFULLY WE WON'T LOSE THAT BAD WHEN WE PLAY THEM WITHOUT OUR TIMMY!

Way to go, Duke! Your playing and your person are a real treat for the UM Family!

Go Canes!

Go U. Beat KS

Fswho beat who again Eddie Murphy State?? Congrats

Fiwho lost to who? Dukey. By how much? 40pts?!?!? The only plus for those panthers is that Mario Cristobal is your Coach.

UofFelons almost lost to who? Bowling Green GOOD LORD I didn't even know they still had a team. At Cowboybills on Duval St over the weekend watching the games and a table with some gaytards jumped up and said FINALLY!!! when they finally put pts on the board and some girl yelled out, "IT'S BOWLING GREEEN" with complete sarcasm. The entire bar laughed at those morons. That table got shot down by a chick from ucf hahahaa. I practically spit my beer out in laughter when it happened. Ahh good times, good times.

BRING ON KLEIN STATE U. HE WON'T DO WHAT HE DID LAST YEAR!!! LETS GO CANES!!!

Lol at Gator fans who almost lost to Bowling Green. Next they will lose to Texas AM and be at the bottom of the SEC

Hey canetillidie how are you doing?? Notice white heron being dumb again??

Duke got one game to play where he wasn't a marked man. The rest of his career he'll be schemed against by all teams. Great players do well even when they are targeted. I think he's up to the challenge, but he will never again sneak up on a team.

@ ltcdolphin

What's up hermano? I'm good man how you doing? How was the trip? Loved seeing that sea of orange and green in BC's own house. Whether it's "white heron" "Ibis" "Coach P" or "Mr.I can't decide which handle to use today" it doesn't matter. They're all armchair heros jerking off to the Canes as soon as they run out of the smoke. They're more like Xgirlfriends who talk 5hit about they former boyfriends ("Canes") and then go home to their Miami Hurricane Shrine and light candles. What can you do, haters will hate and Canes will regulate. Hope the family is doing well and as always mi hermano...

IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!

GO U!!!!
