VERY QUICK HITS FROM PRACTICE: INJURY NEWS

Just got my 15 minutes in at University of Miami practice.

Here's what I saw:

*Defensive end Shayon Green (right knee) came out in a yellow (limited) jersey and did seem to be practicing. Green, who leads the Hurricanes in tackles with 23, was examined on a sideline table during the Bethune-Cookman game. He previously tore the ACL of that right knee twice while at Miami.

   When we asked him why trainers wrapped that knee in thick bandages during the Bethune game, he said that his regular brace wasn't fitting right. ...?

    However, even if Shayon bruised the knee and it's not really a bad injury, keep in mind that coaches, to be prudent, could be taking precautionary measures by limiting his contact. Makes sense.

* Safety Vaughn Telemaque (left knee) was sidelined for the first part of practice, with the bad knee in what appeared to be an elasticized brace. He did join the others afterward. He was in the usual green jersey for the defensive players.

*Wide receiver Allen Hurns (concussion or previous concussion?) was practicing in a yellow (noncontact) jersey, as was fellow wideout Kendal Thompkins. If you recall, Thompkins was examined on the sideline during the Bethune-Cookman game.

*Defensive back Andrew Swasey and linebacker Raphael Kirby were in red (no contact) jerseys today. Swasey was also injured in the Bethune game.

Thanks for the non information. This tells us diddly squat

Why is it that everytime we play Bethune, we come out with a boatload of injuries? It has been the case for the last few yrs.

This tells you that your crappy defensive players are injured or knicked up thus making your crappy defensive unit crappier. In other words get ready for a beat down in Atlanta.

With so much negative commentary I wonder if Miami beats GT the accolades will be so vociferous in the ecstasy of victory?..or will all these naysayers slink silently away in the night.
We are watching.!!!!!!!!!

The naysayers will cowardly scatter back to their respective closets, Ugo. Its been like that forever.

Last year many predicted 1-11, 2-10. Well, they were 6-6. crickets, crickets.

B4 this season, the trolls predicted 4-8, whatever.

No problem, the U has always been hated.

the last run of smack was when that goofy article appeared in the Herald about the poor attendance at the UM-BCU game. But I was there and there were 25-30K. I actually thought it was a good turn out. But those who look to catch Miami with any and every negative thing possible. Yahoo sports paparazzi and hacks are lurking around every corner trying to get a gotcha monment.

But some dude brilliantly posted that in 2001 UM played Temple--31,000 attendance. And Troy--- 35,000.
No different. Miami-Dade has always been a crappy sports town. That is why Green Bay Wisconsin has had sell outs at Lambeau for the last 50 years. Same with Columbus, OH for the suckeyes and in the swamp. There is just nothing else to do there!

The U will find a way to beat GT. I've watched GT. They lost to VT who lost to Pitt. Seriously.And for those analysts out there- BC barely lost to NW, but NW is actually a fairly good team this year.

Im glad you can see the future (Obvious)

Moronic indeed tally boy, that was my point, just like a cane in Tally. Lay off my name.

Watching this team over the last ten years has been tough. I knew the Pell Grant scandal of the 90's would hurt us for a while but we bounced back. I NEVER thought that poor coaching would doom us, NEVER. It's like watching your little brother get beat up everyday after school and not being able to do anything about it. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Ted don't watch if you don't want to endure the pain..

When you little brother starts lifting and learning judo when the bully comes by in 2-3 years he get's his
A** wiped by the little kid who now is in charge.

Till we get there do not watch. Go somewhere else but also remember not to call yourself a Fan..just a bandwagon rider OK?..
Thanks,
Go 'Canes Always

Cool. I've been watching my Canes for 30 years. We still have the most titles than any other school in this country during that time. Something to think about...and is why we have so much lovely hating going on. It is envy. What can we say. *shrugs shoulders*

Just look at this list and how many more we could of received. LOL

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_football_national_championships_in_NCAA_Division_I_FBS

So again. We welcome the hate! LMAO at all you haters/fools.

And now? We're kicking all your butts in academics! YAY! lol

ev erybody hates the U but I LOVE THIS UNIVERSITY WIT ALL MY HEART an these haterz on here that are fans an the ones that are not just stfup an go smash ur damn head in a door some where as far as this wknds game goes i think were gonna be just fine we just gotta be physical up front on bothsides of the ball if not tech gonna roll on us i predicted us winning 34-24 an i stand by it im riding wit us till the end #ALL HATERZ KILL YASELF#HURRICANE 4 LIFE#H4L

It's not really hatred as much as it is I-N-C-O-M-P-E-T-E-N-C-E. Just plain 'ole bad coaching decisions that span over the years not just now. And a head administrator in DS that doesn't really understand big-time college athletics. Group those things together and what'd U got? U got just what U got now: U got pending sanctions and a clueless administration that does not want UM to return to the glory 'ole dominant and revenue-producing days of yesteryear.

I'm just going to ride out the mediocrity and wait. Somebody mentioned here a record of 4-8. Believe it, it is very possible.

Wow Stating the obvious you must work at the Herald to be able to get my post taken off so fast.
Not one reason in the post for it to be removed.
I must have hit a nerve.

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

"No problem, the U has always been hated"

You can't be hated if you are irrelevant.

Orange seats on Saturdays............
Typical game day @ No Life Stadium.........
Typical lack of interest in cane football.........
Tally boy is the FSU game in Miami this year?
Either way it will be a home game for the Noles.
Get ready for the beat down in the ATL

WOW Mr Obvious how long did it take you to write that one up huh, must not have much to do in the middle of your thursday.

@ Stating the Obvious, as Jeff Ireland would say, you're an a------.

Hoping for a solid effort against GT.
Morris must have an excellent game. The
D needs to make a decent effort to stop
the run. GT is tough and prolific.

IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!

I HEAR ALL THE SO CALLED EXPERTS PREDICTING A GT BLOW OUT OF THE CANES BUT "NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS" MIAMI IS YOUNG BUT THEY ARE FAST AND IF THEY CAN STOP THE DIVE (A-BACK) FORCE TECH TO TRY AND RUN WIDE IT WILL NOT WORK FOR 60 MINUTES. IN 2008 GT RB(DWYER) CRUSHED THE HURRICANES FROM THE A-BACK POSITION. TECH HASN'T WON SINCE! MORRIS HAS ALREADY DEFEATED TECH IN ATLANTA. SO WITH ALL OF THAT BEING SAID HERE IS HOW MIAMI PULLS THE UPSET!SPREAD THE OUT ON OFFENSE AND RUN HURRY UP BUT THROW DOWN THE FIELD! MATCH DUKE UP WITH LINEBACKER ONE ON ONE AND WIN THE SPECIAL TEAMS(BLOCK PUNT, RETURN A PUNT, KO) THAT'S 14 PTS. WASHINGTON IS A STEADY QB BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF HE FALLS BEHIND BY 14 PTS? MORRIS HAS ALREADY DEALT WITH THAT ADVERSITY AND IS 1-1! MIAMI 31 TECH 17.

Terry - agreed I also predict a safety, an interception return for a TD, a TD pass from Duke. That's an additional 30 points there added to your 14, we are up 44-0 before the game even starts. Let's run the table boys and bring back our 6th NC. With our Pro Bowlers and the 6 NCs we are with out a doubt the best program in the universe.

We are hated. Always have been by the petty jealous little beetches from gainseville, Tally, South Bend, Austin, happy Valley, LA, and even Alabama. Irrelevant? Not quite, especially for the TV networks, who still despite the poor performance by the canes, still drool at the prospect of the potential ratings that the U commands.

We like to be hated.

Not so fast Rodger and Terry. Not only will Duke throw a TD pass but he will also catch it. He will also return a fumble for a TD, run a reverse for a TD and throw the flea flicker for another. That is 28 additional points added to your 44 for a total of 72 points all before half time.
Ga Tech has no chance trying to come back from such a deficit.
And our awesome punter won't have to play and be well rested for the next game.
We will rule all universes with the most pro bowlers, all ACC and MVP punter and 5 NCs and 2 stolen ones for 7 NCs total plus the one this year. 8 NCs!!!!!!!

More Moronic posts, and he is chatting with himself.

As always

IT'S GREAT TO BE A MIAMI HURRICANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just stating the obvious again

Something to think about. yes we have 5 rings, but 2 more were decided by a ref, and 1 was 1 play. So cane haters, 1988 , its on the U documentary. Ref called cleveland gary when he pushed ball over goal line, a fumble. Lost 31-30 to N dame who won nat title.. If ref calls TD, canes with another NT in 88.
2 2003 fiesta. CLearly not pass Interference. canes were already celebrating. Thats 2 titles.

3. 87 fiesta, vinnie thru 5 int's that day. but, his last was from 10 yd line going into endzone. Had he only thru 4, completed 1 pass on that play. ANOTHER TITLE. THATS 3 PLAYS, 3 MORE NC's , would been 8 rings thru 18 years from 83-01.

4. Technically, the 2000 canes got left out of bcs game and fsu went even tho we beat down FSU. Had U got picked by BCS

REFS HATE MIAMI TOO. U BASHERS WANT TO BASH THE U., even tho 5 is the most since 1983, MIAMI SHULD HAVE 8. 3 plays..........giving vinny the 5 picks, the refs still blew 2 games(88 n dame, 03 oh state).

THATS DOMINNANCE. Oh and UF has never had an undefetated sesaon. NEVER. U, well 86.87,88(1 pt loss), 89 won nat title(1 loss) , 91 undefeated reg sesaon, 92, undef reg season, 01, 02 undef reg season

UGoCane - GFY! OK?! Who are you the fan police? Some of us are used to a certain standard around here. Some of us don't accept mediocrity, like you accept it in every aspect of your life. You, nor anybody else on this blog will ever my question my loyalty.....if you're satisfied with what you see on the field, I have some waterfront property in SW Florida for sale, you jerk.....now GFY! pronto!

Stating the obvious is saying UF and FSu are wannabe football programs who dream to be like the U

No TED not the fan police...Just a REAL LOYAL 'Canes fan who will ride it out until the 'Canes are back..

You I don't know about..

If you can't accept mediocrity and let these young players develop then cool down, chill out and don't bust a gasket, because you have no choice..

No we are not satisfied on our play right now, but we know the plan is in place to bring back the 'U'.

As far as property, I have as much as I need, and more than you could ever think so I decline your invitation.
My degree from the 'U' has served me very well thank you.
Go 'Canes Always

Wow, troll talking to himself again, posting an overblown fake Canes post and then using it to pretend all Canes fans believe that. I thought you had gotten some sense the past few days, must have just been in jail or had your IP banned instead. Found a new library to post from, I guess.

UGoCane - there's no beef, we're both Canes fans, I get where you're coming from, I get that they're young, but what I don't see is improvement. we were told all summer long how much stronger they are, but we're getting pushed around in the trenches. Add to that a Defensive Coordinator who seems clueless, and it amounts to a tremendous amount of frustration. I apologize for the tone of my last post. Am I hoping for the best? hell yeah, but I'm also being realistic......AND we haven't even been hit with sanctions yet! SMH

Hey Ted I am heading out to a business meeting but there is no beef..we want the same for our 'Canes.

We are all frustrated, but I can assure you when the team starts winning and , getting stronger and gelling, we will know that we all weathered the fire and are a better team for it..

Cocah G is on the right track, we need to be very supportive of those young guys who are putting their hearts on the line every weekend to make us 'Canes fans proud.

Realistic but hoping for the best..hell yeah that's my take.

Sanctions I don't think are going to be as big a factor as we thought..should be a bump in the road but the team and growth should continue with select players building on the foundation we are building now.
Thanks we are 'Canes.
Go 'Canes Always

stsing the obvious. Are you stoopid or did your daddy drop you on your head? Seriously. Can you put one foot in front of the other without trippin?

Stating the obvious:

1) your a doosh of major proportions. Of that there is no doubt.

2) FSU has been overrated going back many yrs. ESPN couldnt wait for preseason rankings because there they were. Year in year out, always ranked higher than UM, only for Miami to deflate their balloons. How many times?

3) UF is lost. They have nothing there.

4) UM has the most Nat championships in the last 30 years, have played for the most NCs and have the most players in the NFL... STILL!.

5) Your daddy dropped you on your head. Yo mommy just doesnt know. Thats why you ended up working at that Costco in Opa Locka at the age of 35.

This team won't be back until the day Golden can RS freshmen when they step on campus. It's very telling when Freshmen come in and are forced to play because not only is there no depth but the starter is a scrub.

If only Miami fans had a clue. You'd think they understand how a rebuild works after the Butch era but you can't fix stupid.

That maybe true ibis, but there is very little depth this year, and a few injuries in key positions so you do what you have to do. Frank Gore played as a true freshman, so did Willis McGahee and Javarris James. No way you have talent like sit if they are healthy.

I am not a hater, but a realist. I am an alum and a die hard fan. The reality is, we are headed for a major whippin this weekend. I hope I am wrong, but doubt it. I will gladly eat my words if we literally shock the world. Go Canes!

No mention of losing starting LS by anyone, anywhere for the season. We arguably have the best punter in college football, mark my words he will be drafted,but even Botts will not help a snap back to him at half speed. Most of U experts think anyone can step in and do this with a few days practice. Paul Johnson, and Beamer know better....... close your eyes on 4th and long they will be coming.
