Eduardo Clements says he will be ready for contact this fall

NAPLES -- Hurricanes tailback Eduardo Clements was wearing a headset during Friday's scrimmage at Naples High. But he expects that -- and the neck brace he's been wearing for months -- to be replaced with a football helmet soon.

The 5-9, 192-pound senior from Booker T. Washington High, whose health and future with UM has been in question, said Friday he will have his brace taken off in the next two weeks and expects to be full-go when fall practice rolls around.

"I'm really happy that I will be getting this thing off," Clements said Friday. "At first they thought it was a stinger, but then they realized I had to have surgery for a herniated disk. I'm really going to be excited to be back out there with the guys soon."

Clements' return will provide experience behind ACC Freshman of the Year Duke Johnson as well as depth alongside sophomore Dallas Crawford.

Redshirt freshman Danny Dillard (6-2, 210) appeared to injure his shoulder during Friday's action. But he got praised by UM coach Al Golden for his work after Friday's scrimmage when asked how Johnson's backups have been performing.

"We're giving the ball to Maurice Hagens more. He's answering. Mo is a physical runner, has a good lateral cut. He's showing some niftiness. I'm excited about it," Golden said. "I thought Danny ran hard on the goalline," Golden said. "I think Danny Dillard is starting to understand who he is. He's got to be a big back and wear people down. What can you say about Dallas? He's having arguably the best spring on the offensive side of the ball."

TAllycane- he is just starting his third year of coaching. The firsttwo years were self imposed bowl bans you dumbsh*t. UMdidnt even played in bowls therefore AGdidnt coach in bowls unlike Shannon who,
year 1- his team didnt qualify at 5-7
year 2- his team qualified and choked against Cal
year 3- his team choked against Wisconsin
year 4- his team (coached by his assistants)- choked against ND
-----------

Why is Jim Morris still the coach of UM baseball?
How is it that this teamis so bad, players cant hit,cant field cant catch?

This UM baseball team couldnt hit a ball on a tee.

yes ray-ray over deon bush any day....

tackles:

gionni paul - 61 11 games
eddie johnson - 59 10 games
deon bush - 34 10 games

ru kidding me?....lets get rid of the 2 best tacklers on the team for deon bush.....golden is an idiot

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hope you die in a horrific car accident, Gallo.

Errrr....... blog Pig.

The light schedule seems to work pretty well for the SEC who keeps winning championships. Gallo and Calvin keep saying Championships are the only acceptable thing . The SEC teams schedule punching bag teams for their non conference games and that turns into championships smart move by AG. And don't tell me that the SEC teams are so much better than everyone else, Clemson beats LSU and Louisville just scored again on Florida. Go Canes

Well, you know that all SEC teams are championship caliber. I mean look at Kentucky, Missy St., Tennessee, Auburn, Arkansas....oh, wait.

Good old racist Calvin. Your defending a hoodlum like Willie Williams. I actually liked Jacory, but the kid couldn't read any defense and was a 3 star recruit only @ NW. HE WON THERE BECAUSE OF ALL THE TALENT THEY HAD. He was terrific against Notre Dame (Sun Bowl) wasn't he. The reason Jacory didnt have any talennt was because YOUR boy RS couldnt recruit. I guess it's hard to recruit sitting on your but in the coach's office.

Great honor for coach Golden, his staff, and the U...

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami’s football program was selected to produce the 2013 NFL High School Player Development Program’s Instructional DVD set, which is presented by the National Guard. More than 16,000 instructional DVDs will be distributed this week.

We don't care what other teams are doing from any conference, never has a coach at UM come out complaining about a schedule(that's weak) until coach goldie got here. We have been the only school willing to play anybody anywhere anytime, schools took us off their schedules not the other way around. So for those who want to try and bash the gaytors for taking us off of their schedule, from here on in STFU if you're trying to defend goldie for doing the same thing with other schools.

I am saying times have changed and you have to change with them, The formula has been proven by the SEC and that in this era is what it takes to win championships, tough guys and convicts can't win anymore now you have to mix in a little strategy and intelligence by the coaches to win consistently , It's not what I prefer but it is reality and if that's what it takes for my Canes to rise up out of the ashes then so be it. I am about my team first not my own ego.Go Canes.

No you STFU Calvin if you are hating on the current coach. Be respectful, you jealous, petty little a55wipe.

get over it. Neither randy Shannon,nor JJ, nor Soldinger, nor Tuberville, nor Schnellenberger will ever coach Miami again. Neither is Jacorry Harris. So keep dreaming. And Im tired of all your nonsense.

Herald can you please block this stupid mofo? What a waste.

Go back to watching and rooting for Miami NW- St Thomas Aquinas and Norland will destroy them/

Golden could land Jabrill Peppers and Calvin and Gallo would complain about it because he's from New Jersey and not the "305". They are stuck in the mid to late '80s and want a bunch of thugs and criminals to represent The U. Look at Rutgers firing their BB coach and their AD resigning after those videos went on ESPN. With the internet, twitter, and other social media the schools can't hide their student-athlete's transgressions. Welcome to reality guys, times have changed. The student-athlete is held to the same standard (if not a higher standard) as the rest of students at the University.

9>5>2 UM didn't even played in bowls. What an idiot.lol

Searching for a destiny similar to what we had
but that was another place another time
losing thru many years along the way yea
hoping that I'll never have to say
it's just ad delusion – delusion – delusion
That we will ever be good again
is it really despair in the air
never let your feelings get you down
but if you open up your eyes and look around
you will find we are still down
Could it be that – it's just a delusion
putting me back – into thinking we can be good again

Could it be that – it's just a delusion
putting me back – in all this confusion

Could it be a winning season in my mind
never sure exactly what I'll find
only in my dreams I turn to Golden
here for just a moment then we lose again
it's just a delusion – delusion –delusion

Have you done everything right in your life, if not, be quiet man. ww17 was a product of his environment, but at least he had a chance to make things better for himself but with the way the troll tries to run the asylum now, not to many people are going for that bullcrap. If you're a Hurricane fan, you wouldn't use words like hoodlum when referring to any UM players/teams from any era in a negative way, most on here would've said the same thing about shannon had they knew him back in the days as well.

Coach Goldencrap? He will be gone. Cane Trash football? BSWAAHAAHAHAHAA. Nice QB. Nice WRs.

The O-line? A sieve.

RBs? Who?

But you'll compete for the ACC title, right maggots? Rieeeeeeeeeght. Just try to get Bethune off the schedule.

Posted by: Cane Trash is Hoodlumtrash with a hangover

I've seen in the past alot of people on here trying to brag and repeat the sayign about "The U invented swagger" but now all of a sudden they want UM to start following the sec, lol, what kind of dumb idea is this. Their is only one formula and it's the same formula we've always used, and that's win all the your games. The sec not doing nothing special, they're just doing what they've always done, we get back to playing defense like we're suppose to and we'll be straight.

Otherwise you goldie 13 & 11 lovers that keep acting like he's head & heels better than shannon, coach goldie is going into his 8th year as a headcoach, people keep acting as if coach goldie has a championship formula. It's just like when we played Fsu this year and got down to their 1 1/2 yard line and coach goldie sent the fieldgoal unit in to go up by 10 instead bowing up and going for the 14 point lead, i knew than we were going to lose that game cause he cowered down.

Just like herbstreit said, goldie going back to his big 10/joe pa roots, translation, being conservative, so if winning one national title eery 15 to 20 years is the standard now, we might have the right guy in place than.

I do think our schedule is very weak the first 4 games....nothing wrong with being 4-0 to start the season though. USF might play us tough though at home....not sure.

You wish you could do like the SEC does
But you can't
You say the SEC plays some weak sisters and you wanna do the same
Problem is the SEC also plays the toughest teams in the land, that would be the other top SEC teams for those of you from the Gables.
You already play the weakest teams in the land, that would be all ACC teams save for FSU and Clemson some times.
Now on top of that you also wanna play more weak teams. And you say that is "following the SEC".
Only an ignorant, delusional, moron from the Gables would say something like that.
Fact is that while playing the best teams in the land the SEC keeps winning it all now for 7 years running.
Fact is while playing in the worst conference know to humankind you cannot get much over .500.
And now in order to try and get some more wins what do you do?
Do you go and get better as a football team?
Nah, you replace the very few good OOC teams you do play with pansies.
Only you fools will be deluded into thinking this is a winning formula or this is what the SEC does.
The ones in the know, everyone else, will see this for what it is and it will hurt you whenever strength of schedule comes to play in the rankings, BCS and bowl selection and ultimately in the new playoff system.

WW17 was a product of his environment. How typical of you Calvin, making Willie Williams a victim. Willie Williams was a product of THE CHOICES that he made. Plenty of kids who grow up poor, without a father, and in bad neighborhoods, do the right things and better themselves.

Ummmmm, only difference, Pig, is that Miami has never needed a last minute blocked punt to beat BCC.

You?

Go back and watch your LaMo and Furman videos to help you wash down your moonshine you trailer maggot.

take out fsu and florida and UM goes against team totals of 50-74....you have to be kidding me....

so 10-2...watch golden and kool aid drinkers celebrate on how great al golden is....acc coach of the year, what BS...how can any coach be 4th from last in the whole NCAA in defense and be coach of the year, lol.....a record that will probably never be worse in UM history......

fortunately, myself and select few are the only sane ones here....

Ummmmm, only difference, Pig, is that UM manages to lose every year to at least one, usually two, pansies like BC and Maryland one year and UVA the next.
You?

Go back and watch your LaMo and Furman videos and realize they were both W s. We are too stoopid to know the difference. We make fun of your victories while we ignore our un excusable losses.

Do you know what hoodlum means? There's NO positive way for him to use it. Also, you're blowing smoke about Shannon. He was never a "hoodlum" growing up. Having a father murdered at 3 years old, being raised by a single mother in a bad area, having 3 siblings die of AIDS doesn't make you a hoodlum. Being a lawless, aggressive youth committing violent crimes makes you a hoodlum. Shannon said the worst thing he ever did was either in elementary school or junior high. Yeah, he was a real gangsta back in the day! Shannon was a product of HIS CHOICES and didn't let his "environment" dictate HIS CHOICES.

CAlvin's comments smack of socialist, left-leaning pro-Obama agenda. This agenda basically blames whitey for all of the ills that befall the black man. Yet the hypocrisy of this ideology fails to point out the Russel Simmons, Barry Gordys, Michael Jacksons, Michael Jordans, Lil Waynes of this world who make gazillions of dollars and do it the right way. Yet, someone like Willie Williams or Thomas Finnie comes along and despite one two three strikes, warnings opportunities, they just ignore "the man's" rules and throw everything away. Poor Willie. Poor Thomas.
Twenty year olds who just dont know right from wrong. I guess 20 year old Thommy just didnt know thatits illegal to STEAL a lap top and try to hock it. boo hoo. If I stole a lap top at my work place, and got caught, guess where I'd go- the big house baby!

Sorry Calvin but your philosophy is stale. many a good young man came through the U and did it the right way- Willis, Frank, Clinton, Edge, OJ, Santana, Sinorice, etc etc. Their motto was: NO EXCUSES.

YOUR MOTTO IS "MO' EXCUSES"

* And Harris didn't win any division, conference, or national title period.

* Again, all of UM's great coaches have been outsiders, the two head coaches hired from within were failures. And Harris is an alumni? No sh*t, every player on the team is going to be a UM alumni, including the ones Golden recruits.

* Jacory Harris is not the second best QB in UM history, he had the second most TDs, the most INTs, and a horrible record of embarrassing losses.

The biggest Cane fan misconception is that Golden, because he said so, will stay and deal with Miami's Inner-Administration and Politics a few years from now. Sure he's a nice guy and good, not great Coach that mostly says the right thing most of the time. But if we as Cane fans think that this guy won't jump to a program that will Financially back his Football Program fully with outrageous facilities and make him an offer that he most certainly cannot refuse, we are are fooling ourselves.

Thank you fact checker.

Unfortunately, many here have inundated this blog with facts to "correct" calvin and gallo's misrepresentation of the truth, but they are too stubborn (aka dumb), rigid, biased, racist, and unwilling to accept an opposing view. Plus they somehow are convinced of such incredible fantasies that it'd be like arguing with a paranoid delusional schizophrenic that the voices they are hearing dont exist.

--------------

on the baseball front- are we willing to wait for UM baseball to not make a regional? If that isnt a travesty. A pure unadulterated embarassment, Idont know what would be. I say Fire Morris TODAY. Get a clean slate. He has lost his players. And he cant recruit worth a d--ng. Many of the very good south florida and other florida players that used tobeg to play for the U are now playing at UF and FSU- funny, butthey still dont have a championship!

Really Calvin ? Check Alabamas schedule last season. Who did they play? The Sec was not strong top to bottom last season One of the best teams LSU lost to Clemson (ACC) Texas A&M lost to Florida who got trounced by Louisville(big east) Georgia stayed true to form and could not win a big game, its all a smoke screen with the SEC , You start out high in the polls ,schedule soft so you don't lose and you stay put and play for the title with all your 5 star recruits that you accumulate because your winning its a vicious cycle. That's the formula. I don't give adman about swagger that comes with winning not talking about it. Gallo , Calvin , Canetrash , Canekiller the Quintuplet Queers need to wake up from the 80s and see the reality. I am not saying AG is the answer I am just saying he deserves a fair chance.Go Canes

Not sure why it posted that many times SORRY.

Canes land another 4* O-Lineman stud in Reilly Gibbons from St. Pete. Add ANOTHER Florida boy to the mix fellas. As I posted the other day....my peeps on the inside really love this coaching staff....AG has a game plan that EVERYONE is partaking in....read the quote below!!

"From maybe not Day 1, but after two or three times meeting Miami coaches ... it was handshakes with a lot of the other schools, it was hugs with the Miami coaches," Gibbons' coach, Steve Dudley, said. "They felt that comfortable with each other. It felt like a family, they cared about his future. There's more of a family atmosphere."

See people....my sources are legit...AG and Co. are on FIRE right now....recruits are digging this staff and new facilities....BBQ was a HUGE hit with many. Sit back and enjoy the show people!!!!
