Monday Canes Camp Update: Gus Edwards, depth chart, no red (other than QBs) or yellow jerseys

With only Tuesday left of fall camp, the time is narrowing for players to win starting spots.

But there's still time, Golden said Monday, when his players moved to Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park (that's the baseball field) to practice while the turf at Greentree gets repaired. 

He said that after Tuesday there's "another 10 day of preparation where a lot of those jobs are going to will be determined."

The players will have off Wednesday and then begin working on the FAU opener.

Golden said there’s a depth chart we’ll break camp with and then probably 50 percent of jobs “will be settled in those next six or seven practices.’’

The last depth chart was released Aug. 9.

When asked if there were any jobs solidifed, Golden didn't give specific names.

"There are a lot on the defensive line right now, a lot in the secondary, a lot at wideout.

"I’m concerned about our depth at wideout,'' he continued. "We’re not deep in terms of our scholarship numbers. If we get nicked up like we have been in the last couple days, I’m worried there.''

   He mentioned the tight ends as a position still battling to find the starter.  

Golden said receiver Allen Hurns "has been nicked up,'' Malcolm Lewis (foot) "is fighting back'' and Rashawn Scott (he mentioned foot previously) has been in and out.

All three of those players practiced Monday, and no one was wearing a yellow (limited) or red jersey, signifying no contact. Quarterbacks always wear a red jersey, however, to remind players they can't be touched. 

*** Freshman running back Gus Edwards, who has sat out the past several days dealing with an NCAA Eligibility Center issue, "will be ready to go tomorrow,'' Golden said, confirming a previous CaneSport report. 

*** Regarding Friday night's scrimmage, Golden chose not to be specific, calling it "a good run."

   "Guys played hard,'' the coach said. "We had a lot of guys making effort plays. They took it seriously. We really conducted it like a game. We slowed it down'' -- with TV timeouts and a halftime. It's a mature team and I've been saying it all along, so hopefully they can keep their focus."

*** The Canes have have been punished with some running before practice lately: "If you didn't give the type of effort that's the standard on offense and defense here -- certainly the standard of the Shayon Greens and the Jimmy Gaineses and the Jon Felicianos, you're going to run,'' Golden said. "Period. You can run during the game and give 100 percent or you can have loaf plays and run on your time. that's the standard the guys want and we're going to hold them to it."

*** Golden was asked about the status of Dyron Dye, still waiting for indication from the NCAA if he can play or not in relation to the NCAA case with Miami. Dye, who has been rehabbing from Achilles' tendon surgery, told his lawyer he was getting a physical today to see if he could be cleared to practice. He hasn't practiced with the team this fall.

"I don't have an update,'' Golden said. "I wish I did." Golden did say he hoped he was getting the physical and that he would still be a defensive end -- "like Shayon Green's position.''

*** Finally, sophomore safety Deon Bush (hernia surgery) is out of a non-contact jersey and in a regular green one.

"I think he progressed well,'' Golden said. "I'm excited for him. Hopefully today he is a step [closer] and he'll keep making progress in that arena. A lot of it is confidence and understanding he's not going to be 100 percent anytime soon, but the only way to get there is to make increments every day."

I am really looking forward to this season. I know there are still some unanswered questions, however I believe this is going to be the year where everything comes together. Usually, in successful programs year three is the turning point. I am with you all the way Coach Golden.

same thing new year every year since 2004 ...

That turning point will be September 7th.
Canes will begin their quest as top FB program on Florida .

Hi Manny and Susan! Have you given any thought to turning off the comment section of this blog or requiring a log in? It's pretty brutal for fans of UM sports to have to sift through the horrible nonsense that gets posted here. Thanks!

************** Hurricane Football Programming Change **************

ESPN is reporting that World Wide Leader of Sports will not be brodcasting any University of Miami Football games this season. Instead duh u's games will be shown exclusively on The History Channel due to the fact that all Cane fans can talk about is the ancient past...

Make no mistake: Weak attendance is a turnoff for some UM recruits, so much so that UM asked not to be given any Thursday night home games so the empty seats aren’t exposed to the nation.

What a disgrace!
"Hey ESPN, no Thurs nite games pretty please, don't wanna the whole world to know only 3k clucks show to our games"
"Can't have all that tarp shown on TV, no sir ee"
"What would the recruits think? That if they come here they will play in an empty stadium?"
"Can't have that. How about some artificial crowd noise please".
"Let's contact a good engineering school to see if they can make us some type of hologram thingy so the seats would appear as occupied"

Arty, blow Soldy. Soldy, blow Arty. Two sides of the same maggot.


How Many Aliases Do You Have? You Post Under 20+ Names Spewing The Same Garbage. My Question To You I This. When The Gators Get Manhandled On 9/7, Will Ou Still CMe On HerE, Or Will You Run And Hide Like The Gator Trash Coward That You Are?

Oh, I don't care about football, I'm just a huge internet nerd who loves my fake internet rivalry!

The UM-UF game won't make any difference at all, I've been here every day since the last time we played 5 years ago and I'll be here another 5 years after we play again, just enjoying every minute of this fake internet rivalry!


Is Al Golden doing a good job or is he just mediocre?

I have posted before that I like the job he’s doing recruiting. My reason for saying this was based on the fact that he’s recruiting a lot of guys that he’s had a chance to actually personally evaluate at his camp. I could care less how many stars the player has. No knock on anyone but usually only young fans or non-athletes are concerned about stars. Many old school Canes know that stars mean jack squat. For years FSwho and Notre Dame would have top 3 classes and we would spank them time and time again. Who cares how many irrelevant bowl games they won.

From what I read here he is either doing really well because of where last year’s recruiting class was ranked, or how he finished recruiting his first year or where the 2014 class is currently ranked, how much stronger and better conditioned the players are opposed to the previous staff,

Or, he’s terrible because he missed on a couple so called “must get” recruits, he has resided over the worst defense in Cane history, fans can’t recall one mid-game adjustment he’s made in two years, he has been very hypocritical in terms of player discipline, he’s starting to sound like a tape recorder in interviews.

Is it possible for him to be both? It appears mediocre to some equals good. I never thought I would see the day where Cane fans would be up in arms about winning 9-10 games and playing in a meaningless bowl game. Yea, I know times have changed. And if that’s the case, what’s the ceiling for coach Golden? What should be our expectations? I get a since that it’s a positive vibe around the program again. But it was a positive with the prior staff and an even more positive vibe with the staff prior to that one.

No matter what side of the fence you are on can you make a legitimate case for how you feel without blaming the previous staff? Blaming the previous staff won’t help your case if you are use recruiting class ranks because the same folks that have our current class ranked so high are the ones that ranked the previous staff’s classes high.

Schnellenberger said before we beat Nebraska for the title “I don’t care how big and strong they are we are going to be faster and tougher”

And we were

And to the bloggers that say Al must go, how much time do you think is needed to turn this program into a dominant force again? 2-3 years?

Letter to Editor:



Manny and susan


This incoming class is Golden's 2nd class fully recruited by him and his assistants. The 2011 class was a bit of a hybrid since Golden hired late in the process.

Obviously, lots of purposeful NCAA obstacles, but it is time to produce. The 2013 season needs to be significantly better. If the D is a huge drag again, Golden will have to make a DC change. Time will tell and no amount of speculation will matter. This is a business and Golden will be judged up or down based on performance. He's all about accountability and that goes to the top as well. We will see.

The addition of these 2 players is welcome, especially from a maturity standpoint.
Plus, they both come from programs that have beaten us. I'm positive they will be forthcoming with WHY their former teams found us vulnerable. Our guys may not like it, but they need to listen. I'm sure TOUGHNESS will be mentioned.

UM teams were NEVER beaten at the point of attack as we've been the last 6-7 years.
I can see 9-3 or 10-4 if THAT issue is solved. Seeing our D-Line pushed back 3 yards every play has not been encouraging.

I'm hoping that getting bigger, we also got tougher, and maybe a bit angrier.
The message to our players should be "if we win big, your draft status will improve, and you're tax bracket will increase!"
That's a message (unfortunately) that todays young athlete understands.
Well, whatever works.

Sorry, meant 9-3 or 10-2.
Gotta get my math up to snuff! LOL

Yea guys, how could we possibly keep up our daily internet rivalry if we had to log in and people could see how much times we spend on this?????

Jim Gallo said: with this ridicules scheduled for 2013......UM should not lose 1 game....12-0. if golden/dnofrio are as good as they say they are (or bloggers) with this team/experience/size....there can not be ANY reason for less.....

after florida/fsu this is what is left.....
fla atlantic / 3-9
savanah state / 1-10
usf / 3-9
gt / 7-7
nc / 8-4
wake / 5-7
vt / 7-6
duke / 6-7
virginia / 4-8
pitt / 6-7
goldie and d'o will do their best to lose to FSU and UF, gt, nc, vt, va, and pitt by running a three down defensive linemen, no pass coverage zone defense.

So, that is a 5-7 season. It could be a 6-6 season or even a 7-5 season. But it will not be any 12-0 season even against mediocre teams because goldie is most definitely in contention for mediocrity. And with d'o to drag him down even further, furgetaboutit.

you ten or twenty die hard fans go to an empty stadium and root for the canes against savannah state (I didn't even know savannah was a state) and listen to moron siren button pusher.

BTW, why didn't Miami buy some land down in hurricaneandrewhomesteadville and put up a stadium with all the money that Howard, Jimmy, Ericson, and Butch brought in? Who stole all those tens of millions of dollars they brought in?

BTW, attendance will rise dramatically if we put a WINNER on the field, as evidenced by last years basketball team.They could have filled another 3k seats easily.
Besides, having the stadium so far away from campus does not promote great attendance.
The city council in Miami is made up of UF and FSU creeps, who find ways to deny UM any chance to build near campus.
Shalala, whom I feel has made some excellent hires the past few years screwed the pooch on this one.

She would have a statue on campus if she could get a nice cozy 40k seat true HOME stadium done.

If you build it NO ONE will come..........
But you can't build it..........
Cause you know NO ONE will show anyway.......
Cause Shalala dont care anyway..........
All you need is a 10k "cozy" stadium to appear 80% filled...........
It sUcks to be U..............

IMAWriter, that's not true at all, more people went to Bethune-Cookman last year than went to three separate games at the Orange Bowl during UM's 2001 championship run.

Winning doesn't make Miami fans go to non-marquee UM games. Nothing will. Miami fans are the worst in the country.

Posted by: CaneFan'72 | August 19, 2013 at 12:37 PM

Who stole the millions? Probably some low-life dirtbag Gatr maggot. Don't you know "Felony" is a major? It is on the curriculum right after Facebook and before Instagram.

UFirstdegree murder: pumping out idiots in this white trash state 17K at a time.

Good to see another independent thinker blogging here in j'ville Cane. Coach goldie is like a mini roger no-goodell when it comes to discipline issues. Kicking freshman and redshirt freshman off the team shows he doesn't give guys a chance to mature. sam shields would not be in the nfl if it were not for randy shannon, had he been here with coach goldie,he would've been looking for work somewhere right now like aldarius johnson.

a freshman lighting up the field against a seasoned 1 team defense......

there's your answer right there....

Posted by: Jim Gallo | August 19, 2013 at 09:31 AM

Just wait until the players get bigger & stronger next year, we'll win the combine test hands down, you'll see, that's what they're saying, just wait until next year when dzp 52 is 260lbs!

WAIT TIL NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WAIT TIL NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The chant heard around Miami every fall

Great Sunday afternoon television, where they showed on ESPN U the documentary The U, the NC State Miami game, and the University of Miami Spring Game.

Looks like the past, present, and future of the Canes is looking like great television to ESPN.

Contrary to the lies of a certain obsessed troll....

This guy claims he used to post on the site known as canespace. Why we should care, he doesn't explain. But his comments here show him to be anti-Miami, anti-Miami fan, and anti-Miami fan blogs. So I tested it.


Only responses are on here where he CLAIMS to have been posting there.

So, much like Curse Piggy claiming that he has 7% body fat, and that he is working with the FBI to solve a murder, this guy is caught in a lie.

Then he writes the following sentence, not noticing the hypocrisy of it:

"I've never posted once in my life with intentions to piss someone else off and I know for sure that Cal is not cut from that antagonist cloth either. If you go to Canespace's Vault (if that lame still has that vault section up) you'll see posted comments from Cal and myself that are utterly embarrassing in hindsight because they wreak of kool-aid."

Uh huh? Calling someone lame behind their back like a coward is not meant to be antagonistic? Sure. Look, if you are such a big fan of that blog, since you bring it up constantly, why don't you just POST there instead of whining about it here.

I am sure they need your racist input there far more than we do.

David Duke is my brother

Just Sayin and Calvin are s couple of girls who can't put their panties on straight. Two gatards who have nothing better to do than try to spoil the party we'll have when the Canes trash their sorry aasses. The only reason they go after Golden is because there' s nothing positive to say about will smellcamp.

lol he just likes talking to himself. i try to ignore him. He probably to busy banging his mom or sister or jacking off to pictures of tebow to have a real life. internet trolling is his only claim to fame. oh well. go canes and i expect canes to win 9 10 games. oh and north carolina and vt are gonna be much improved this year from last year just saying.

Just how big is Stephan Morris' Head ?

If it get any bigger, they'll have to cut two holes in a 20 gallon Gatorade drink cooler and strap that to his Melon noggin in the Canadian Football League next year...

Tebow? You mean that career backup that went 1-7 for -1 yards and an interception? I guess he doesn't wear his glasses when he watches, or he thinks that he is the best passing fullback on the Pats....

My name is Zakkee on there--dumb ass--dedicated a whole post to me and didn't know what the hell you were talking about lol. U went and did the research like a b&t#h. I called 86/SOUP more than lame many times over the years and finally got banned after the VTech game last season. Idiot googled Harriet Tubman Cane lol!

I've explained what my new name means and why u should care or not. Yall spin masters at it again.

racist dudes calling someone racist huh??? I'm black and look up to Harriet Tubman because she freed the slaves of men--like you. So thats what I'm trying to do as a Canes fan. U saw that name and thought anti-cane racist troll immediately because thats whats in your mirror everyday.

I agree Pi (I hope that doesn't mean private investigator), it doesn't always mean that, but when a person gets so upset that they begin to insult you, then thats a clear indicator of blinders--and that occurs too often.

How can say that something doesn't work, when you are admittedly ignorant of the very idea in question??? So it doesn't matter what the formula is, you've already disqualified it. Then you follow that by asking me what it is lol. Thats backwards.

The best athletes of Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties with other handpicked athletes especially QB's from outside that area. Maybe 85%/15% demographic


A coaching staff that believes in accepting and cultivating the survival mentality of our players that is bore out of the struggle most have been involuntarily faced with and redirecting that energy positively (but still aggressively) to the playing field (keep that chip on their shoulders--don't attempt to change or destroy it, but provide an outlet for it). This coaching staff must provide aggressive schemes because this is the average recruits culture, nurture (not nature--no one is born aggressive outside of the impact of drug abuse to the womb)--there neighborhoods support tough love and a against all odds mentality, and thus their disposition. The kids must believe in the schemes, so they must be smart and geared to their strengths. This causes the State of Miami athlete to play at incomparable speed, intelligence and swagger. Swagger is a result of speed combined with intelligence. The smart game plan (intelligence) develops the speed and the speed kills. These are ALL responsibilities of the coaches.


So swagger begins with acceptance and sincerity. They lend to intelligence and ownership of the ideal and concepts by the players. And when the players become intelligent, their already amazing athletic ability is unleashed and they play fast. When they play fast they destroy their opponents. When they begin to destroy their opponents then the develop swagger--and go on auto-pilot--leading to championship contention every single season.

This formula encompasses emotional + mental + physical necessities that are the responsibility of the coaches to satisfy. The south Florida athlete is not extinct, so the formula is still doable. Look how Urban Liar has OSU playing. Who are they playing like? U guessed it, they play like the old miami on defense. They are no longer being told to engage the blockers, his d-line is using swim techniques and getting up field with players that are inferior to our own (my opinion). I don't think our players have sucked half as bad as our results or rankings.

So what doesn't exist anymore? The players? or coaches that understand the players and devise schemes/strategies that compliment their skills and lends to their emotional and mental development, focus and confidence?

So weird that either Calvin or HarrietTubmanCane will spend all day writing six page dissertations on this blog.

But never both.

Sonny Crockett- You mean all that wishing you fa66ot gaytrs do year in year out for Tebow to come back?

Listen, history has to be known:

2000- UM vs UF. UM won
2002- UM vs UF. UM won
(You all lucky you didnt play us in 2001)

2003-UM vs UF. UM won
2008-UM vS UF. UF won

That means UM is 3-1 against the wanna be overrated gators in the last 4 games



The game 09/07 won't even be close.

Its even weirder how you can't do what we do.

Troll people on the internet pretending to be UM fans?

I mean I could, but why would anyone want to?

"I've never posted once in my life with intentions to piss someone else off."

"I'm black and look up to Harriet Tubman because she freed the slaves of men--like you. So thats what I'm trying to do as a Canes fan. U saw that name and thought anti-cane racist troll immediately because thats whats in your mirror everyday."

Maybe you should change that mantra of yours. I mean, cowardly hiding behind a keyboard, calling me a slaveholder, and then claiming I see an anti-Cane racist troll in the mirror, when Sue and Manny can CONFIRM both your statements are lies, sure does seem antagonistic to me, and anyone else that read your hate-filled rant.

Go back to Canespace, namechanging troll.

Like I always, say, not everyone who liked Randy Shannon dislikes Al Golden but EVERYONE who dislikes Golden loved Randy Shannon.

And yea, it's mostly racial.


You've changed the meaning of that word to encompass someone who you don't agree with or whose opinions are outside the prevailing groupthink.

Exactly why would anyone, you answered your own lil quagmire. I've posted using my real name for over 9 years on Cane blogs and have been kool-aid drinker most of that time. So troll doesn't fit my documented history. But what about you? Whats your real name, when will or have you ever posted anything of substance?

The comment box is below: try to post an original idea or thought about UM football. It doesn't have to be a six-page dissertation, just something free of insults, complaints, and more than "Go Canes" or "Al is the best, thanks for saving Us". We'll wait.

A hate filled rant that was in *response* to your hate filled rant. Sequence of events is very challenging on this board. I didn't call you a slave holder, I called you the modern slave himself. I'm trying to free you, but you're like Samuel L. Jackson's character in Django. Google that lol. Name changing troll? I used my real name for 9 years and now I don't want to, just like you don't. Is your name Five Titles? Then what you talking about? U changed your name too.

I didn't love RS, so you're wrong again. Sorry. Its partly racial both ways though, the difference is that one is proactive racism and the other is the reaction to it. U only see the reaction.

zakkee, lol, you already know that clown doesn't know how to do research about football or life. And to think some jack-arse actuall thinks we think about them before we post just goes to show more derision among the ranks, lol. Ask them who told them to take a break from slurpin coach goldie.

The real UM fans already know, 9 & 10 win seasons are not tolerated around these parts when you had/have talent already in place. I don't care about an acc championship, that's suppose to be automatic, mentally we got a coaching staff that don't think they're the best. They're outsiders trying to figure out how to "Uphold the Legacy" and create what is already here, their biggest challenge goldie & his minions should be to understand how not to get in the way.

It's a sad day in time when the gaytors are playing way better defense than us, so this will be one of the only times all year we'll be able to get a strong idea of what our offense is really about, practice means nothing. I could go to practice right now and get a few catches myself with that defensive scheme being run here now. Just sit down in the zone and you'll be open all day long. No 240lb linebacker is going to stick me, that's 6 points.

As soon as DUH notes that Lady Cavlina and harriet don't post at the same time, a calvina post pops up. Weight obsessed, of course.

And when Calvin pops up--you of course do as well. Talking about what he's obsessed with-when you are obviously obsessed with him. I don't know who U slurp harder Cal or Alverage.

I already did, you just chose to attack it in your Gator persona.

I posted a response to your claim that Miami was "smoked" in South Florida recruiting, with a person by person comparison of the 10 Tri-County players that both UM and UF went after.

We have people pretending to be UMike, 952, OGV, canesrule, and others. You pretending to be "Zackee", but disagreeing with everything he wrote, sure is suspicious.

Hey reality bites, how about fake name such as gators suck, rainbow flag gators, living in mom's basement gators. By the way, I don't post much but you've prompted me to become the anti-gatard patrol.

It's still only fall camp, but HarrietTubmanCane is making a strong case for #1.

I didn't post anything about UM getting smoked in recruiting???? I disagree with everything I wrote when? 2 or 3 years ago? Then yes, like I said, I used to drink kool-aid straight no chaser. I stopped midseason last year and have been getting attacked ever since.

Thanks Sunny Dee! I always strive to be #1 as all Canes should. Some of y'all could learn some things.

Miami 48

F.A.U. 13

Over/Under... - 58 1/2

Hurricanes... - 32 1/2

And yes, it's a honor to be bloody CHIT-CANNED from that canespace forum!! Because I was EXCOMMUNICATED from the cave of FOLLOWER'S!!

By the way, here's an example of the ZOMBIE-mentality festering at canespace.

Only a month ago, the Good Ol' Boys in the canespace were bloody BLOVIATING, that Miami would be a Top 50 team defense this season. dUh

Then, the Cane bUbba's over there started feeling mean and nasty, and begin yapping bout' how Miami was going to be a TOP 35, or higher, team defense in '13. hUh.

Now, those LEMMINGS have toned down their ARROGANT, bragging ways and what not, and are stuttering a Cane team defense of NO.45-NO.60. Go figure.

The bottom is canespace AIN'T no forum of INDEPENDENT-MINDED, OBJECTIVE, FREE THINKING Hurricane loyalists. Eh. What say.

It's the ABSOLUTE inverse! If U know what I mean.

No one knows what you mean D, we don't speak "stroke victim".
