Corn Elder alert: UM's newest football-hoops prep star could end up bouncing from FB to hoops before end of FB season

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Two-sport star Corn Elder, Mr. Tennessee Football as a running back, will play cornerback, kick returner and punt returner with the Canes, UM football coach Al Golden told us today at the ACC Football Kickoff. A two-time hoops state champion for Ensworth High in Nashville, there’s a good chance the freshman could bounce over to Jim Larranaga’s UM basketball team for practice before this football season ends – especially if he redshirts.

    Elder is enrolled and on campus and has been working out with the football players.

    “Absolutely,’’ Golden said of the possibility of Elder leaving football for basketball early should he redshirt. “Jim and I have a good relationship on that. The first week [Elder] was there we wanted to indoctrinate him to football and get him used to the schedule. The second week we took two or three days and got him acclimated to basketball. I wanted to make sure that he went through that orientation, if you will, how they lift, how they practice, their locker room, their video setup – all that, so he’s not doing it after our season in January.

   “So, certainly if he’s not part of that, we’ll be able to expose him to basketball a lot sooner.’’

   Golden said Larranaga “did not’’ ask him to redshirt Elder. “I know Jim is excited about the young man. He watched him practice this summer and he’s excited about him as a basketball player, which is great to hear.’’

   Regarding football, Golden described Elder as "very talented. Quick feet. Good lateral mobility. He's very smart. I'm not saying he won't be a slot receiver at some point, but he certainly looks very comfortable at corner, and given his speed and quickness...''

//////////////////////////////////////////////////

ROFL, i know that's goldie's best friend and all but i'm sure even he knows his boy is in over his head. The first time i heard him talk i started laughing knowing full well, he wasn't going to fit in here.

The thing that's important about this year is, style of play, that's what's going to determine win's & losses, along with a manufactured schedule by coach goldie trying to buy time for him & his boy clown 117th. All i'm saying is, FAU can't be marching up and down the field on us like BETHUNE COOKMAN did, the 2 years we've played BETHUNE COOKMAN, they've gained 777yards in 2 years on us, how is that happening. The 1st year, a veteran squad, the 2nd year blamed it on young guns. 777yards to a MEAC school and they should've had more than that if it wasn't for dropped/bad passes on perfectly executed screens plays.

Their oc was out-scheming the heck out of oach UH-NO!
If we start playing real defense around here, than i got no problems with coach goldie being here, but if he's going to try and make excuses and keep trying to convince anybody who'll listen why we gave up 41 points to mediocre teams, his time is running out to.

gallo, these jerks off will learn one day, they always try to their wits end to try and prove me and you wrong have yet to do so and they fail miserably. Which brings me to this point, been listening to the ACC media day and they had smo17 and shayon green up their for us, and those are some nice young men, but it's funny seeing this guy interview them and he's waiting to hear the normal Miami confidence that they're use to hearing and these 2 guys are giving them nothing, lol.

But back to the point though, the guy asked them how tuff was it dealing with the investigation and knowing you weren't going to play in the ACC championship game and shayon green's words:

" i mean, you know, it was tuff to deal with knowing we wasn't going to be able play in the title game, even tho things went out way in the coastal part(meaning they didn't earn it out-right) at the same time, that was a decision made by our president donna "troll" Shalala and DRUMS PUH-LEEZ, coach goldie"

As i recall you told these "green pea's" a while back coach goldie had a say in whether or not we played in the title game, rofl, these same buzzards tried to ridicule you for it, but now we have it straight from a players mouF. are they now going to say shayon green is lying. These guys are to stupid to be UM fans, to busy slurping everything goldie, we're leaving in the days of the "easily impressed" wanna be UM fans now, that's about as sickening as the defense. Guys wetting their pants over "verbal commits" when it's damyum near 7 months away from actual signatures.

Boasting about nerd recruiting site rankings, what the hell is going on around here these days. We use to have the majority of the realest fans in the nation, now we got a bunch of hanger-ons who have no clue of what a real UM mentality is.

We couldn't wait to show out every time we got back in the days, now we're talking like a mediocre school, this is what the troll and the dirty dozen always wanted, a kinder, gentlier Miami. I remember last year when we played k st. and one of the playa's posted up some of the Truest words ever posted, i got pissed off at first, but you can't fight the Truth, he posted during the game, "k st. is playing UM football"

It still pisses me off, but i laugh at it now too in a pissed off way. But that's the last game under this regime that i need to see like that. I keep reading where guys try and say this team doesn't quit, that's a lie, on the defensive side of the ball giving up 41, 45 & 52points ain't quitting, i'd hate to see what we ever give up if we do quit.

in regards to what doosh calvin said about coach donforio:

" I started laughing when I first heard him speak"

That is like saying, you are dumb because you are black. That is THE most idiotic thing I have ever seen posted on this blog, including anything posted by gators, seminoles or buckeye fans.

CAnes are about to start campo, and you are still talkingnegative crp about something you know nothing about.

If UM's defense goes from 116 to 35, your bi==ctch a55 will be crying that it should have been 22. If UM wins the NC, your beetch a55 are going to whine thatthey should have won last year.

People like you should have their parents arrested for unlawful waste of DNA


Calvin, you are the biggest d-bag in southflorida, bar none, in fact,

George Zimmerman>>>>> Calvin and Gallo

Little nevin (Calvin) and baby nevin (gallo) how cute there typing words now.

LOL..Calvin ..so negative..idiot lives in the past. Its a new year sh itbird..

Is this the same idiot that said a ball fly's further in cold air

gallo, oh hell naw, you get chance, listen to the acc media day man, i already said smo17 & shayon green are nice young college kids, and how you could tell the interviewer was waiting to hear some kind of confidence coming from them like almost any Miami team would do, but i started listening to the Fsu interview and as soon as i saw lamarcus joyner(Liberty City) & rashad greene being the 2, i already knew confident talk was coming. The biggest difference between us and the teams that won is mindset, troll Shalala as she stated "we're recruiting a different kind of athlete to the University of Miami" has taken strong affect.

So guys like eddie "bath salts" Johnson are being targeted.thomas finnie and crew.

So let me figure this out Calvin...
1. So Morris isn't a tough guy....ok, I don't recall Steve Walsh mixing it up with anyone but that's ok...
2. Wetting their pants over verbal commits....Wha?
Geek websites? Forget it.
Talk to USC, Texas and Tennessee about those goofy recruiting rankings. I'm real happy we're back to getting the So Fla kids.
3. No Defense? NO SHEET! NO Cane fan that I've talked to in the LAST SIX YEARS has been happy with our defense...
51 points to OU and 48 to UVA in '07?
GT's 472 yards rushing in '08? Did you see that game?
40 points vs Clemson and 272 yds rushing vs GT in '09?
34 ppg vs FSU, OSU, VT and ND in '10?

The defense hasn't been good for quite some time, regardless of regime.

Start talking solutions.

Sorry gallo and calvin....we expect alot from our team. When u have undefeated seasons under your belt its no longer a privilege but then expected......but then again ya'll wouldnt know.....real fans look at the positive....right now our team is tied for first in d for 2013...at least we have hope.....unlike your gators offense ...

Lady Calvina/Gallo the WHINE maker:

Your latest lie is Coach Golden arranged this year's schedule, because he knows D'Onofrio can't coach.

Are you so painfully stupid not to know that Coach Golden does not organize the schedule?

You better stick to your lie that the Booker T players and their coach Tim Harris will NEVER have anything to do with Miami because of the way Coach Golden has treated them.

Right on jerseyshore cane.

ohhhh cheeet mang !

I agree. Gallo and Calvin should be coaching somewhere. Not commenting all day. You two are a waste of talent by just sitting here commenting all day. Keep educating me with your brilliance. Sure wish D'no could get his hands on the film you guys evaluate. Your football IQ is off the charts. Keep it up. Just brilliant.

when does the Bosch clinic across the street open tomorrow ?

password again ? "i'm wit duh u" riiieeet ?

Do you people even watch football. Putting your thoughts to words for others to read should be a crime. Please, find something else to do. Gallo and Calvin who would you recommend Miami hire as a head coach? Golden has done wonderful with what he has and had to deal with. If the defense improves, this year could be huge. If you were fans you could see that and hope for that. But rather than look at the potential, the two of you just continue to post bs. Pick another team to bring down.

Represent the home young man!!! I'll be watching every game son!

Thought all along he was a db and not a running back at the next level.

acc media says nothing new......athlon sports had UM win at coastal and Clemson winning acc.....

UM #39 at 9-4 2013

"Mark D'Onofrio after 2013 Miami spring football game" - U TUBE...watch it "vanilla defense"

is he the biggest idiot that walked the face of the earth or what...golden is right behind him since he TOTALLY ENDORSES him.....

get both of these jerk offs out of here and let UM get a real NFL caliber coach...

Jimmy Gallos is a Gaytor fan posing as a Miami fan.

dude watch all the u tube videos of dnofrio......its unbelievable that UM has this complete and utter idiot.....hes like some "babe in the woods"

2013 will be just like 2012....no improvement. there is NO WAY the defense respects this guy.....they are ALL laughing at him behind is back.......

UM is doomed this year.

Jimmy Gallos is a Gaytor fan posing as a Miami fan. he wears jorts.

calvin: of course......golden is a lier. he had 100% say so in the decision.....he sacrificed the class of 2013 for his own gain. those guys got totally f...cked.

" I cant really comment on that because I could he held legally liable"....remember that statement?

dnofrio will not be able to stop florida's offense especially with their running backs matt jones and kelvin taylor...florida will pound at dnofrios defense.....

....He will also cook for the team and paint the lines on the field...

Alex RodrigUez Park huh ?


.


.


i'm spinning in my grave btw.

Uh gallo....UM knows that so they will prep for it....heck,even i know that...they sur dont have a passing game...i got 20 that says they try to come out and pass....then they start running....

Golden told CCS that he expects the NCAA will give UM its sanctions within two weeks. "It's been our coaches, everybody, that have been a victim of this for more than two years," Golden said. "There's going to be great days ahead. The worst is behind us."

(And the following comment directly speaks to the dirtbag, Lady Calvina/Gallo the WHINE maker)

Golden said "we're not going to forget" that a lot of people are taking shots at us" but added: "We've been operating with class, dignity and transparency and taken the high road. We're going to fight our way back to the top of college football and do it the right way."

Lady Calvina/Gallo the 'WHINE' maker is a cowardly, ignorant Gator.

gallo, these clowns in here are comical, the natives are restless, lol. They slober over everything goldie, these sissy's are so happy shannon is outta here that they can't see mediocrity and way below sub-par non-coaching ability of clown 117th.

Somebody tried to make the point that according to them "we haven't been playing defense for at least 6 years" lol, what they fail to point out is, the defenses under shannon have been top 20 defenses and below in major categories over that time span, but if they're trying to make that comparison to try and justify the atrocities on the defensive side of the ball now, a lot of people in here are even more delusional than i thought.

These bandwagoneers act as if coach goldie really understands the UM blue-print, lol, if he did he wouldn't be trying to enforce this stupid defensive scheme upon us. Offensively, we got weapons, that's a known fact, but who wants to go into a game knowing full well that if the offense doesn't show up, you can pretty much chalk that up as a lost cause you can't count on the defense to hold nobody.

I got a clue for the clueless, anytime you hear somebody who's suppose to be coordinating a defense say something like "well, we held them to only 7 points in the 4th quarter/half" that's somebody who's about as clueless as a blonde doing Chinese Arithmetic!

gallo, the only reason i see defensively of us hanging in the game is if curtis porter is healthy which may force the gaytors to abandon the run, but o course they'll call running to the edge of the defense where our corners will be 15 yards back. I'm glad we're playing them, this game is going to say a lot.

Obviously Gallo and Calvin are highly educated folks in high demand for the skills they have. You can tell by the amount of time they spend on a nothing blog posting 24/7. Don't blink folks, another Gaytor just got busted.

There's not a time that Lady Calvina/Gallo the 'WHINE' maker posts that he's not subsequently slapped right in his dumb mouth and proven wrong.

How many ways can one tell this moron that all Canes fans know the defense has been putrid for the past 8 years, has gotten even worse under D'Onofrio and should it not improve the man will be fired?

Lady Calvina/Gallo the 'WHINE' maker defends the unquestionably disastrous reign of Randy Shannon both offensively, defensively and special teams who also presided over the most embarrassing loss in the history of the school, which was to Virginia in the final game ever to be played in the Orange Bowl.

Al Golden could lose every game next year and D'Onofrio's defense could give up two thousand yards a game and that would not come close to the humiliation and the destruction of a 25 year legacy that the Virginia game under Randy Shannon's leadership caused. It is and always will be...UNFORGIVABLE!

Yet, those Miami fans who dare to find hope in the efforts of Al Golden and his staff Lady Calvina/Gallo the 'WHINE' maker calls them bandwagon fans, slurping Al Golden, etc.

Lady Calvina/Gallo the 'WHINE' maker swears that Randy Shannon did it the "Miami way". He may be right, which anyone with an IQ above 10 knows that means you better change the "Miami way" in a big hurry.

Coach Goldie and D'Onofrio what a sad sack combination. These guys are mediocre and I don't need to see anymore coaching to apply the label. D'Onofrio is setup for consideration of his replacement. He's too conservative and Just so those clowns know--the Herald can remove the post boards but your detractors are still here Goldie.


Coach Goldie and D'Onofrio what a great combination. These guys are spectacular and I don't need to see anymore coaching to apply the label. D'Onofrio is setup for coach of the year. He's brilliant and just so those winners know--the Herald can remove the post boards but the cowardly Florida Gator felons will still be here as they have no life's.

it's 4:20 somewhere ...


noles and gators are going to kick ur everlastingsplittailedvswampasses through 2020 ...

anyone taking batting practice over in the P.E.D. Batting Cages this Morning ?

NJcane you bring up some good points. Under Randy, the defense began it's decline. The defense then got shoved around alot. And Randy was a defensive coach who could not recruit on that side of the ball. I'll say this again....at Temple they built an excellent defense. Yes, they played in the MAC but they were Temple, the worst team in America prior. I need to see defensive improvement this year or I'll start agreeing with Calvin and Gallo that Coach D must go.

Insert Ray lewis......calvin,gallo ,cane trash,jlo,what ever u want to call them would disappear into the shadows......

Gayllo,

Don't you get tired of embarrassing yourself or is that your goal?

Will Hill will start the NFL season SUSPENDED for the SECOND year in a row for using BANNED substances?


it's 4:20 somewhere ...


noles and gators are going to get their arses kicked by the Canes u everlastingsplittailedvswampasses through 2020 ...

anyone taking shooting practice over in the Boston County Jail with Aaron Hernandez this Morning ?


Calvins new nickname is 'Weird Harold'from the Cosby Kids cartoon. Why you ask? Because you can't UNDERSTAND anything he says. 'I ba de ba we ba, dabba dooba, booba looba. LMAO!!!!

At least if you gone act like you watched the cosby kids at least get the name and character right imbecile, lol!

Cola cane - thats hilarious
I bet Calvin looks like moosh mouth as well
deba booba daba baba dooba babba deeba

And he makes more sense than Calvin the dooocsch

Gallo would be fat albert yet not as smart

Calvin, who are U calling imbecile ? U are a gator living on a superior blog of a team U hate. I think U are jls too. Your multiple personalities are on here day and night. You may have a few good points but when U repeat them 10,000 times it doesnt mean you have 20,000 good points. Last years defense was last years defense ....let it go...if our first couple games the offenses rack up yardage then keep squaking. At least the second game is against one of the worst offenses in the country so maybe there is a chance U will stop. Lord knows if ufelons dont produce you wont knock thier team for sucking.

gallo, a lot of these imbeciles are cry babies just like coach goldie. But i do know this, the longer coach goldie is here, the less he'll be a cry baby, cause this is the wrong city to be a cry baby and making excuses. People will look at you like you a girl or something. I can always tell when the transformation starts taking place with the outsiders that come here.

everyone is looking the wrong way with our QB situation..it is DIRE.....thats why olsen was red shirted....if morris gets hurt you can forget 2013 and 2014 season

nobody has UM winning either fsu/florida......fsu has not hired an OC....fusher will continue to call all the plays.....coley needs to show he can do this.....

go miami high!

lady Calvina/Gallo the WHINE maker (a cowardly Gator) is now telling us that because we only have one Heisman contending quarterback our situation is...DIRE!

Seriously folks, this nut job lives on this blog constantly posting lies, repeating the same comments over and over and over again and claiming his posts are spot on when communicating with himself using the aliases Gallo and Calvin.

It was just a week or so ago he was telling us that never again would a Booker T player commit to the Canes and Tim Harris hated Al Golden. He was also saying that no players from the 305 will play for Al Golden. And that's just a couple of his hundreds of lies.

Spot on!!!!!!
