UM coach Al Golden unveils yet another Hurricanes depth chart -- for opener Friday against FAU

Turns out the final CanesCamp depth chart distributed by Al Golden on Aug. 19 wasn't exactly final.

On Sunday night, Golden put out yet another depth chart -- this one supposedly for Friday's opener against FAU.

***The changes on offense:

* 6-5, 318-pound redshirt junior Jon Feliciano has won the starting right tackle position from Seantrel Henderson, who is now the backup.

* At left guard it's Malcolm Bunche ahead of Feliciano, with an "or'' between their names.

***The changes on defense:

* Anthony Chickillo has won a defensive end starting spot, as opposed to having an "or'' after his name.

* At outside linebacker, it's 6-3, 233-pound junior Thurston Armbrister "or'' Alex Figueroa, as opposed to the other way around.

* Raphael Kirby is the backup to Jimmy Gaines at middle linebacker.

* Tracy Howard has locked up the starting spot ahead of Antonio Crawford at cornerback.

* The starting safeties are Rayshawn Jenkins (he beat out A.J.Highsmith) and Kacy Rodgers II.

* Antonio Crawford is now the backup to Phillip Dorsett at punt returner. Crawford wasn't listed previously.

* Kick returner is still Dorsett, with Duke Johnson "or'' Artie Burns backing him.

This will change!! Deon Bush and Henderson will both be starting. Also plan to see Clements alot in short yardage situations.

Whatever happened to tyriq mccord? I thought he played pretty well last year.

Oh man this might get ugly. Seantrel is a backup? actually I like that, doubt it stays that way though. Guess they trying to light a fire under his butt. FYI: he's a senior now, if you still got to light a fire he probably just done have it.

yea henderson will be starting by gametime and they are probably being cautious with bush till florida. he will play a lot friday but not start then he will get the starting job against florida. the starting oline should be flowers, bunche, mcdermott, linder, henderson. feliciano will see a lot of time too. also, quite confused where crawford came from backing up dorsett as a pr. i thought coley or burns were gonna be backing up dorsett.

Seantrel is llike Speedy Neal. Lazy but a ding dong.

golden will be rotating a bunch of guys in especially on both o and d lines and the receivers too. idc if it is the first game against a weak team he will do this every game like last year

We need to do something with the DL. I say run an old school "flex" defense with the front four that we got. Like Dallas used to do waaaaay back in the day. I'm a big fan of the 3-4 D, but I'm not sure if we got the personnel for that, but these players can be "coached" into it.

All things considered, I don't think UM should play a straight up front four on the DL.

Updated depth chart.Seriously barring injuries chart should already be in order.Sentral as a backup. Bush and McCord not starting.Someone call security. The orange and green Porsche has been stolen by 2 coach impersonators.Please don't give the season away..Some of you said that Coach D was left with nothing to work with or quitters. Randy last year coaching wasn't the defense ranked higher.I like what I saw from BTW against Norcross Ga Start fast finished strong. I expect the canes to do the same..

Bush not fully back from injury. My guess is he'll start by 2nd week. McCord will play some when we are in a 3-4. No idea about Henderson. Either a final attempt to get him to perform up to his capabilities or he's just been beaten out.

Feliciano is the nastiest O-linemen we have so he'll be on the field. All the o-linemen on the 2 deep will play a lot (7 players).

I hope our D doesn't look like norcross huge and slow. They had the nerve to be talking trash before they got trampled 55-0 to nothing at home. Nor cross had some good looking black camouflage unis though.lol Florida 2-0 verse GA

aint going nowhere till they get rid of D'ornofio
just opinion

Bottom line, Elder will leave, go to Louisville or some such, and kill the ACC for the next 3 years, after he sits out the mandatory year.
Hurd is 5'8. Great running backs such as Barry Sanders (not comparing) were barely 5'9"".
VERY rare when 5'8" DB's make great cover guys against all the tall receivers these days.

Unless he's the next darrell green, this move is a waste of time. I wasn't sure why we picked him up anyway, but i guess mr. Tennessee is more valuable than an o-linemen from BOOKER T. in denver kirkland, well, according to the mac staff!

Using Ms Tubman's name as your user name (or one of them) is in extremely bad taste.
That said, UM Swagger was a Jimmy Johnson thing, not a an "Urban, Haitian, Italian, etc) thing.
Jimmah's Cowboy teams played the same way.
Well, yeah, some urban colloquial dancing and showboating, but a LOT of that came from Johnson's take no prisoners attitude, as evidenced by the numerous beat-downs administered to most of our opponents, especially Notre Dame and Big 12 schools.
WINNING, and winning big helped, but Jimmah encouraged the fun. You don't see that from Saban coached teams, yet they often win just as decisively.
IT WAS THE COACH.

Fortunately U are not an authority on taste nor of the legacy of the great Harriet Tubman. U don't know my history, background or the significance of her name usage. I'm not up under your flawed jurisdiction of chronic hypocrisy.

That said, UM didn't begin to win football games and or a NC until it hired____________________________. And he began to recruit ________________________ which was revolutionary at the time. From that moment on, UM had an air of invincibility and Swagger appeared on a football field (it had already existed--just never on a national forum by black players on a football field). UM won before JJ and after JJ, last time being over 10 years since his departure while playing in a dominating Swaggerful fashion. JJ was extremely instrumental to the harnessing and redirection of that Swagger on the football field. His upbringing in P.A.T. probably had a hand in developing his ability to relate to our kids. Same place UGK is from.

South Florida high school football is the best in the country. It was on exhibition this weekend via ESPN where U could still see the teams playing the same aggressive style, when they never even met JJ. To *only* credit our players and recruiting region with the showboating & dancing aspects of Swagger is a huge slight, tasteless and borderline racist.

People like u have 3 types of interactions with the hood:

1) Profit or attempt to profit from its misery.
2) Admire its arts & culture's credibility and skill: music, dance, food, art, and language all a product of the struggle and perseverance needed to survive the environment.
3) Steal these treasures, re-name them and then take credit for them (put your imprint on it). "Master Morality" type of dude.

NOTE: All art forms derived from the urban environment are not good quality or appropriate representations/reflections of the community. These are the ones that get promoted and pimped the hardest--See: #1.

Can't we all just focus on FAU and our game coming in5 days? Geesh, we need to see how both sides are going to play before we can judge who should or shouldn't start. The hope is to have depth, and play multiple compliments on both lines of scrimmage. That's what I looking forward to seeing. That will show we have the personnel to beat the snot out of lesser opponents instead of keeping them in the game. And will show how well we can match up this year against the likes of UF & FSU. These are the stories I'm most excited about as we enter into a season of expectations finally; at least in the ACC Coastal division perspective. And hopefully in the championship game as well, and the corresponding bowl game that brings us. Go Canes!!!

Whatever happened to Tyriq McCord? Can someone lend some insight!

The key to this season is the D-line. if they get push and pressure the entire defense is better and all the sudden coaches aren't that bad. Miami needs an aggressive dominant front line.

What up with dem BTW boys flashin the U last night on ESPN....Gallo....Calvin??

WE'VE CRITICIZED,COMPLAINED AND ARGUED SINCE LAST YEAR'S DUKE GAME.. WE'VE DEBATED EVERYTHING PRACTICALLY CALVIN &GALLO HAVE SAID.. WE'VE FLAT OUT ASKED THAT WE CHANGE DC BECAUSE WE THINK HE STINKS AND EVEN GIVEN HIM NAMES(DUNNO)!! WELL THAT'S ALL HISTORY AS OF FRIDAY NIGHT!! IT'S FINALLY TIME FOR SOME FOOTBALL!! THE CANES ARE TALENTED AND THEY SHOULD WIN 10 GAMES THIS YEAR BASED ON TALENT AND SCHEDULE!! NOW IT COMES DOWN TO THE COACHING STAFF PUTTING THESE GUYS IN A POSITION TO PERFORM THERE BEST AND DEMANDING THAT THEY DO SO!! IT'S A GOOD SIGN IF HENDERSON IS NOT DOING HIS JOB UP TO EXPECTATIONS AND HE IS DEMOTED!! WELL DO THE SAME IF DL CANNOT GET PRESSURE ON THE QB AND GET SACKS (GREEN) IF CANNOT MAKE INTS(RODGERS) AND IF THE UNIT AS A WHOLE DOES NOT PERFORM THAN REPLACE THE DC(DUNNO).. I KNOW THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN BUT I WANT TO GO ON RECORD RIGHT NOW THAT IF THE DEFENSE DOES NOT LOOK GOOD FRIDAY NIGHT THE CHANT SHOULD START EVERY HOME GAME "D'O MUST GO"!! ENOUGH OF PUTTING UP WITH BS PERFORMANCES IF THEY WANT THE FAN BASE TO RETURN THAN YOU MUST GIVE THE FANS WHAT THEY WANT AND THAT IS A GOOD DOMINATING WINNING TEAM!! THE EXCUSE ARE OVER AND ANYONE WHO ACCEPTS GOLDENS EXCUSES THIS YEAR NEEDS TO GTFO!! GO CANES !! TIME TO GO GET IT!!

Tk swann calvin and all the other haters

Let that post be the last one b4 you eat your words

The last two yrs the defense was decimated by graduation, attrition, going to the nfl, laziness, arrests, enttlement, and plain crappy players that Shannon recruited. The miami d wpuld have been crappy even if bill bechick was the DC

But that is history. This is the third yr. I agree no excuses anymore. This is now 80% on the coaches, 20% on the players. The pieces are there.

Go canes.

Does anyone have any factual information on Corn Elder and Tyriq Mccord? Not the usual rubbish that Calvin spews?

The depth on the offensive line looks like smoke and mirrors to me. People are starting at one position and are the backup at another. Its going to be hot out there against Florida. Do we have the offensive line depth to last out the game?
There are one or two backups per position on the defensive line!

Corn if he stays will redshirt and play basketball as said months ago. McCord probably didn't make the two deep or the coachs need his attention to push harder

more confusion and uncertainty with dnofrio/golden.....lets see how it all plays out.....

you would think at this point and all these "camps", there would be finality with the depth chart.....play all the seniors.....freshman sit and watch/learn.....go with experience since your defensive HC su..ks.....

TMZ - 2013

Seems Elder will stay as it has been reported several times he looked forward to also playing basketball....that it was important to him.McCord as of about a week and a half ago....it was reported he was playing well.Currently I agree not much has been said since then about those two......and actually..........several others but then you are talking about a teamload of players in general.That being said ...I agree with a previous post that the DL is the key to this Cane team.I strongly believe we can be a Top 20 team if they have improved.Can t wait to see if that is the case.GO CANES.

What up with dem BTW boys flashin the U last night on ESPN....Gallo....Calvin??

Posted by: Canes 35 Turds 17 | August 26, 2013 at 02:22 AM

I thought we were shut out of BTW because Golden had done a terrible job working with the coaches?

Only team to have two BTW stars? Miami.

BTW, if anyone else watched that Nebraska recruit QB from Apopka get knocked out, he ended up with a concussion.

http://www.cfnews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/sports/video.html?clip=http://static.baynews9.com/newsvideo/bn9/web_video/APOPKA_BYRNES_082413.f4v&vtitle=BHSN%3A%20Apopka%20vs.%20Byrnes%20%28SC%29%20highlights

It was a great game until that hit, then both teams seemed to just go through the last six minutes or so like it was a practice.

SOOOO glad football season is back!

CALVIN C'MON MAN I WILL GLADLY EAT CROW AND APOLOGIZE FOR MY PAST BLASTING OF THE DEFENSIVE COACHES IF THEIR IS DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT THAT LEADS TO 10-2 REGULAR SEASON RECORD.. NO DOUBT!! THIS IS MIAMI 5 TIME NATIONAL CHAMPS AND I'VE BEEN A FAN EVER SINCE THERE WAS TALK OF ENDING THE PROGRAM.. WE CANE FANS HAVE BEEN PATIENCE AND OUR BIGGEST FLACK HAS BEEN THE DEFENSIVE PERFORMANCE ON THE FIELD,, TOTALLY UNAACCEPTABLE FOR THIS PROGRAMS STANDARDS. IF THIS WAS ALABAMA,NOTRE DAME,OR OHIO ST THE FANS WOULD NOT TOLERATE SUCH A PERFORMANCE AND NEITHER SHOULD WE.. LAST YEAR WAS LAST YEAR SO WE SHOULD SHE IMPROVEMENT FRIDAY NIGHT!! FAU (NO DISRESPECT) SHOULD BE STOMPED BY AT LEAST 40PLUS POINTS.. FAILURE TO DO SO OR ANY SORT OF DEFENSIVE STRUGGLE AND I WILL BE THE FIRST TO START THE CHANT! PLEASE MAKE ME EAT CROW!! MAKE ME HAVE TO STFU!! I WELCOME IT BECAUSE I LOVE MY CANES AND YOU(CALVIN C'MON MAN) DESERVES BETTER!! GO CANES!! NO MORE EXCUSES!

more confusion and uncertainty with dnofrio/golden.....lets see how it all plays out.....

F*cking pathetic.

Gallo's list that he chooses to make things up as he goes along in. Not going to go through them all, but these three at first glance stand out, especially since he was already proven wrong about them and chose to ignore it.

blah blah blah...

tim ice harris - feeder coach
booker T - feeder school

blah blah blah...

Gus Edwards – RB

Posted by: Jim Gallo | August 24, 2013 at 12:13 PM

AGAIN: Edwards had a NCAA clearinghouse issue, that has ALREADY BEEN resolved over a week ago. It had nothing to do with Golden, and he is not a casualty.

Tim "Ice" Harris and Booker T are a Golden Casualty? They are no longer feeding us players?

Nigel Bethel II, Cane.
Demetrius Jackson, Cane.
Chad Thomas, Cane.

Perhaps you misunderstand what the word "casualty" means.

Congratulations to Tracy H. I criticized your play at Duke last year. You did your work and now you are starting. Good job buddy.

Can't wait to see Figueroa play the kid is intenses.

Muhammad we are watching to see you get comfortable and do your thing.

We have a good nucleus of young players stepping up.
They raised the ante, so Seantrel prove them wrong and bust it.
Stephen play smart and smooth. Duke nothing need to be said. Bring it.
Our 'Canes will be fine.
Go 'Canes

all the casualties are on goldens watch......end of story.....

golden is a mediocre coach.....he is not ready or qualified to run UM football.....he is not proven via his weak win/loss record.....stats tell the whole story in life.....

dnofrio is does not have ANY ability to be a defensive coordinator......no top 10 program would hire these 2.....was a rush decision on shalalas part....

Ive been saying this ALL ALONG....we will see who is right....

there's seems to be more underlying confusion here...

TK SWANN (Did U get your name TJ Swann from "Nobody Beats the Biz"--Biz Markie's singer?

Anyway, why would U need to apologize for the things you've already said about *last season's* defense? Were your assessments and critique accurate? Yes.

The only way or reason you'd need to eat crow this season, is if U are predicting that the defense won't improve, and I'm not sure you are doing that. You're asking for an improvement and some fans take that as a slight or prediction that an improvement won't take place.

Great post TK--I feel the same way--we aren't rooting against our team, we just don't want to be sold short and feel as if our individual and collective expectation levels as fans is and has decreased significantly, while we witness other programs and coaches win with less or under similar circumstances as ours.

U can't post "no excuses", but preface and/or concluded that statement with a grocery list of excuses. Especially when they are BS, conjecture, opinion, and the routine/normal hurdles that all coaching staff face annually. Especially when their best offensive and defensive numbers were achieved with Shannon's recruits. especially when the best players on the team right this very second--were Shannon's recruits!

I don't about y'all but I don't see different coaching staffs. They're all molded together in my mind as one 10 year ball of under-development, promises and mediocrity from the top down. Coker, Shannon, and Golden (so far) is one big ball-one hodge podge coaching staff the administration keeps feeding Us to save money--selling Us short--and we keep eating it up and licking our fingers.

Yall might hate people on food stamps, but yall sure do love their diets. Yall some Ramen noodles eating mofos. Without the little spice packet lmao!! Bland taste-buds.

^^^^^^

what a moron apologist. Must be great to have all the answers.


Then, at the end of your post, you go for the low-hanging fruit and make it a race/class issue.

You are a pseudo-intellectual slob. I will burn some more korans in your honor.

University of Miami unveils new $46.5 million Student Activities Center

We have $ and lots of it. The Board doesn't want allocate it to the football teams success. F' weight rooms and other appearances based initiatives (winning will pay for that). Put 3 million of that on a capable, confident coach and the people will come $. They'd rather have nice buildings then to make certain that we have a winning football program.

I firmly believe that we don't need to be going thru any of this losing. They're wasting our time--the ingredients for a NC are available at their disposal--they're either ignoring this or they're incompetent.

Sammie Watkins, Patrick Petersen, Geno Smith, Teddy Bridgewater, Corey Luiget, Corey Lemonier, Alex Collins, Noel Devine, Rickey Jean-Francois, etc etc. Game changers that left the state from Miami. Slightly more understandable to lose them to FSU and UF, but out of state?? We need to really, truly, officially lock down Miami.

Jealous, hater, coward, U would take your anger out on a book as if that hurts me lol! thats your issue...U wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight lol.

Keep calling me intelligent with the sly, pseudo-compliments. Thank U! I can respond to racist comments about people on food stamps by other posters if I see fit--I don't see u saying anything or responding when they do. Apologist of what or whom?

Just throw a bunch of insults, phrases and your ability to light a fire around and see if any of it sticks--we got cha!

Posted by: HarrietTubmanCane | August 26, 2013 at 10:55 AM

"We"?????

You have nothing to do with the University of Miami, you're just a pathetic jock sniffer who needs to live vicariously through 18 year old kids because you have nothing going on in your life.

So, Gallo, just so we are clear:

Booker T Washington and Tim Harris are casualties. Why? Because despite the evidence, your LIST says so.

Gus Edwards is a casualty. Why? Because despite the evidence, your LIST says so.

So much for you giving credible debate on these items.

I do as a fan, thus the use of "we". Everyone here uses it when posting, so????It seems we both have the same things going on in life seeing that we are oftentimes...doing the same thing with our lives (posting here). If I don't have a life and you're aware of my existence, then U must be doing something wrong.

All camp Feliciano has been behind Bunche for the gaurd spot, then all of a sudden he beats out Henderson for the right tackle spot?!

Doesn't make sense to me

You're literally sitting at a PC *waiting* for people to post, so U can insult them.

The only daily thought U have is: what new, silly name ID you're going to use next.

Now thats pathetic. U respond to me, so without me U don't think or speak. Who has more of a life?

"With less than a week before National Signing Day, UM pulled a scholarship offer from Booker T. Washington All-American offensive lineman Denver Kirkland, angering Booker T. coach Tim “Ice” Harris."

“Coach [Al] Golden visited the school [Thursday] before our parade and told Denver everything he wanted to hear,” Harris said. “Then, a couple hours later, everything changed. … This isn’t the way UM should be doing business, not with the kids in their own backyard.”

from harris own mouth...thats your proof

"The same month, Golden rescinded a scholarship offer to Booker T. Washington offensive lineman Denver Kirkland, which came as a shock. Back in March, during a high school coaches' convention in Orlando, I was in the room when Golden and his staff told the coaches at Miami Central, Carol City, Booker T., Norland, and Northwestern, that he would never pull a scholarship offer he made to a student-athlete."...miami times

casualty list is 100% accurate.....TMZ remember?

so are your clear now green pea......these 2 are winging it as they go....

I know personal/people......Ive hired tons in my lifetime, I know what to look for.....these 2 don't have it.....

keep drinking the koolaid.....lets see who is right in the end.....

A loss of personel like I have never seen in my whole life......

Every team in the country has depth chart changes just check their respective blogs it is a great thing as it says depth which any cane fan knows has been a huge problem we are close to three deep now

5 titles,

Galloinda operates here under the American disabilities act. There is a well documented disease called listingitis. The diseased party shows an inability to ever cull ongoing lists for reality as they equate doing so with shortening their lifespan and their (generally already tiny) unit.

The only time we didn't have enough depth charge changes was in the Choker and Marble Mouf eras when positions were cemented in based on their perception as to how you played as a hs junior.

gallo, don't forget to add, like i've been saying all along, in the words of coach goldie "nobody can tell me that tyriq mccord won't be a better player at 245lbs than he is at 218" oh really now. So what they do to the man, first they ask him to put on more weight, than after gaining more weight they tell, we're going to play you out in space, lol, i said it aleady that this man's sophmore year will more than likely be null and void, especially if they have this man paying in space, that's not his strong point.

goldie and clown 117th, have no idea how to project out defensive players. Their only solution is to add more weight to guys. I could careless if we go 10 & 2, it's national championship or bust ever year for me. If we go 10 & 2 and are still playing bull manure defense, i'm still going off. I'm not going to let the offense or coach goldie try and hide the defensive performance behind a win. Until we start playing championship defense i can careless what the offense is doing myself.

Here's the thing that people need to understand also and stop being blind too. If players just being brought in like kamalu, renfrow and gilbert are already in the 2 deep over guys that this defensive staff besides barrow has recruited and have been in their system going on 3 years now, that tells you all you need to know about the level of coaching that's going on, on that defensive side of the ball. Cause these guys coming in weren't coached up here and are coming beating out guys that's been here that's a problem.

None of these coaches should get credit for the success of the new d-linemen coming in from elsewhere, particularly, gilbert, renfrow & kamalu. We need to get back to being an attacking style of defense, this sit back updated version of the prevent is not what we came for. "Uphold the Legacy" that means defense to, when the announcers are consistently making suggestions to coach goldie and the defense game in and game out, that's a sign they know somebody don't know what they're doing.

Only difference is that you are here, 24/7, and think you have all the answers. On top of that, you throw in some passive-aggressive comment to a perceived racial/class-based insult.

Loser.

We about to add tyriq mccord to the list of another null & void sophomore campaign by a promising True freshman. Why do players regress in their 2nd year under this new regime, not by a lil bit, but by a whole lot.


"Here's the thing that people need to understand also and stop being blind too.

Cause these guys coming in weren't coached up here and are coming beating out guys that's been here that's a problem"

But I thought Golden was good at player development and recruiting? You mean to tell me a couple guys that just got here a week ago are already ahead of guys that have been in UTough for a couple years?
