With injuries mounting, UM coach Al Golden says he doesn't feel good about offensive line depth

According to the roster, the Miami Hurricanes have 15 offensive linemen on the team this season.

But all of those guys certainly aren't practicing right now.

Miami's starting offensive line unit, expected to be one of the best in the country this season with six returning starters (tackles Ereck Flowers, Seantrel Henderson, Malcolm Bunche, guards Brandon Linder and Jonathan Feliciano and center Shane McDermott), remains intact and pretty much 100 percent through the first two weeks of camp. That's the good news.

The bad news? The guys behind them keep going down.

Golden said Wednesday that freshman Hunter Knighton (6-5, 278) will miss the rest of the season following shoulder surgery on Tuesday, and backup guard Danny Isidora, who had foot surgery last week, will be sidelined at least eight weeks. That's at least half the season, not counting recovery time.

New to the injury list this week: freshman tackle Sunny Odogwu (6-8, 318), who was banged up in Sunday's scrimmage, and freshman guard/tackle Alex Gall (6-5, 304). Golden said the plan is to keep Odogwu (knee) out of practice a few days so he regains his health. 

"His MRI came back OK," Golden said of Odogwu. "I guess if we were playing he would be like questionable or probable.

"Gall has an infection in his hand," Golden continued. "It doesn't cause me distress other than getting lined up in practice. I think someone said he got a bite, a spider bite or something that got infected. I don't know the specifics of it other than it blew up on him and we're trying to get him antibiotics to get it settled down."

Although there is plenty of reason for optimism this season with the Hurricanes considering they've got 19 starters back from a 7-5 team, Golden is in mid-camp form these days when asked how he feels about a particular unit or group.

"I do not feel good about the offensive line situation," Golden said. "I say this constantly, but I don't feel good about anything right now. I just think we're not in a situation where we can just sit back and go on automatic pilot and just let the depth take care of itself. We're still growing and learning. In a lot of places we're still not veteran."

Of the four injuries, the one that hurts the most is Isidora. He was clearly the backup at guard if something were to happen to Linder, Bunche or Feliciano.

Senior Jared Wheeler is listed as the backup at center, but could slide over to guard if needed. Sophomore Hunter Wells and redshirt freshman Taylor Gadbois are healthy and practicing, but they were seen as the eighth and ninth guys on the totem poll behind Isidora.

MORE NOTES

> Receiver Rashawn Scott was wearing a red non-contact jersey at practice Wednesday afternoon. It's unclear when he was injured. But he wasn't wearing any braces on his knee or appearing to be in a great amount of pain.

> Golden said defensive lineman Jalen Grimble asked for his release Monday night from the team.

"Jalen's a great young man. He wanted to make a move," Golden said. "At the end of the day, we released him. We're going to help him any way we can to help him find what he's looking for. The rest of it is private. He's a great kid. There's nothing [troublesome about his departure]. It's just a situation where he wants to move forward. Sad to see him go given our situation at defensive line."

> Grimble obviously saw the writing on the wall after the arrival of four new defensive line transfers this fall.

Asked about how his new defensive linemen looked in Tuesday's practices, Golden said: " I'm excited about all the guys. All of the young guys are trying to make their way in and whether its [Ufomba] Kamalu and those [new arrivals] they're bringing some maturity where we desperately need it. We're not out of the woods yet on the D-line. You guys know that. We've got a long way to go to be the type of defensive line we want to be both in development and then the acquisition. They give us some maturity right now and help us recover from a tough two years in the recruiting end."

> Golden said he wants to see tackling and blocking by his receivers and tight ends improve in UM's next scrimmage Friday. He also said he wants to see Stephen Morris have a better day throwing the football.

"I'd like to see our completion percentage go up," Golden said. "Stephen was much better yesterday as was the offense than it was on Sunday. Our completion percentage can't be as low as it was on Sunday."

> Kicker Matt Goudis was 3-for-3 in Sunday's scrimmage on field goal attempts, connecting on 45, 45 and 47-yard kicks. But he missed a pair in Tuesday night's special teams scrimmage Golden said.

> Golden said he's more than happy with the conditioning level of his kickers. He compared punter Pat O'Donnell to fictional movie villain Ivan Drago of Rocky fame.

> Golden said he likes the competition right now at tight end.

"There's three that are in the rotation. Beau [Sandland], Asante [Cleveland] and Clive [Walford]," Golden said. "Beau has really changed his body and conditioning. He's a different person than he was in the spring."

> Golden said camp will officially close next Wednesday. The team's final scrimmage is Friday.

CAT 5 HURRICANE WARNING!!!!!!

oh for god's sake, goldie, Stop whining!!!!

If you have six big linemen, they can play both offense and four down lineman defense and special teams.

Hint: Get the Canes in good physical conditioning like running down to Key Largo and back every day. And you will have no problems and no injuries, dumbazz.

You are definitely not worth what they are paying you.

If you want better completion percentage, then throw the ball on crossing patters or slant patterns so Morris can LEAD his receivers instead of your stupid, god damned hail mary passes. Geez, do I have to do all the thinking around this place!!!

"I say this constantly, but I don't feel good about anything right now. I just think we're not in a situation where we can just sit back and go on automatic pilot and just let the depth take care of itself. We're still growing and learning. In a lot of places we're still not veteran."

^^^ALERT: He's attempting to set your expectations for you. The expectation is for the players to be "veteran", for Us to expect success????

No matter what Coach Golden says the usual idiot suspects, who by the way know less than nothing about football, line-up to take shots at the man.

Just like when he made the comment about Perryman being much better at pre-snap reads and the moron trio started bellowing about that comment.

Of course a kid in Pop Warner football knows the importance of that statement, but this blogs self-professed football experts don't get it. Am I surprised? Absolutely not!

Finally, you've got a wingnut claiming the team is not in good physical shape, yet, their conditioning testing broke/crushed all records at UM under longtime strength and conditioning coach, Andreu Swasey . Thus, if you are to believe the imbecile it means that all teams before the current one were in horrible physical shape...like the 2001 team, etc.

I really hope that this team can shake the injury bug. Injuries have been an issue with us for years amongst other things. This is the best team that we've had in almost 10 years, so I really hope that some of these guys can get healthy, especially on the O-Line. I think that we can get away with a 7 man rotation, as long as the top 6 remain healthy. We're going to need 8 to 9 though throughout the grind of the season.

He's attempting to set your expectations for you.

Thanks for giving us a heads up......

It's all a trick. Golden has taken over my mind. He is an evil human being.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are joking dUde! Well, you are seriously clowning with the Cane bUbba's! Aren't you.

" The best team in TEN YEARS!! " Get the FREAK' outta' here with that chit!!

Damyum, I thought the Hurricane zealots at canespace/eoth were bloody DAFT and what not. With THEIR collective touting of how Miami is going to have a TOP 35 team defense this season. Huh

And then canespace ZOMBIES say how Miami is going to finish 10-2 or 11-1 after the conclusion of the regular season.

But the " best Cane team in TEN years. "

Oh well, Cane bubba is entitled to his opinion. No matter how bloody LOONEY it be.

Over and Under for Miami vs. F.A.U. is currently - 58 1/2

And the line is - 32 1/2.


Miami 48

F.A.U. 13

U'all Hurricane partisans read it here first!!

Seven quality O-linemen is doable for the Canes, but anymore ' serious ' injuries to the offense personnel, will be Goldie's bloody WATERLOO. Especially with a suspect D-coordinator hanging around in Coral Gables.

Nonetheless, Miami will still have a winning season in '13. The big unknown is HOW MANY wins will Cane bUbba be celebrating. hUh

D'Onofrio hindered the process of Grimble, when he stuck him at DT. Jalen should've started out at DE from the get go, and then maybe he'd still be a Hurricane.

Heck, the kid was too short and not big enough to play the DT spot. And that added weight may have hurt his quickness and speed.

But then again, according to ron zook AKA Sarasota cane, I'm a neophyte when it comes to major college football opinion making and what not.

" I just think we're not in a situation where we can just sit back and go on automatic pilot and just let the depth take care of itself. We're still growing and learning. In a lot of places we're still not veteran."
*****************

In other words, Miami still doesn't have QUALITY DEPTH at most offense and defensive positions.

So, pre-snap > post-snap.

I understood the comment and the importance of pre-snap reads but it isn't saying much when opponents drove the ball on Us all year, running straight up the middle and Gaines (not Perryman as you posted) was out of position and/or whiffed every time, so much so, that he was benched several times last season. Gaines is currently in and was last season, an inactive LB. But I guess reading the defense trumps actual production huh? ok! U can't distinguish Gaines as a player that excels at something that we constantly witness him fail at. Thats just smoke.

You are so intelligent Chris Freet...I mean Ron Zook, but your post is filled with insults. We challenge and go at Golden, U go at Us for doing so. See the sequence of events now?

Binder > its contents > Golden's ability to execute it (fruition)

Excuses > reality

Appearances > substance

Ok, I got it Ron Zook, thanks.

He said he doesn't want to go on auto-pilot, he said he wants to coach.

Donna has bugged my phones and Golden has me tailed. It's all part of UM's master plan to keep the sheep in the flock. DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

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

D (short for dummy),

Yes, one could put it kindly and say you are a neophyte, but putting it more accurately you are clueless and a liar.

Thinking you know more about where Grimble should have been played than the Miami coaching staff is hilarious.

Those Cats have forgot more about football than you will ever know. And they are on a 24/7/365 watch concerning our players and you are an internet wide-load professional plopped behind a computer keyboard and screen constantly posting gibberish, which again is hilarious that you think you know ANYTHING.

Anyone else hear that helicopter?

It doesn't say that he "doesn't want to go on auto-pilot." And it doesn't say that he wants to coach either, you're reading it wrong buffoon.

He said that, "...we're not in a situation where we can just sit back and go on automatic pilot and just let the depth take care of itself..."

This means that auto-pilot is his desired situation. In other words, he would if he could. What coach or team is ever in a situation to "...sit back and go on auto-pilot...". We did that in 2001 against BC and Temple and got real scares with an all-star team. This is the situation he relishes--he wants an all-star team--to win it for him. Golden has no swagger.

You're reaching "idiot"--u said it yourself.

Speaking of pilots...Do you hear it?

u delusional candy canes are at it yet again like groundhog day. All puffed up and poppin off with the same old bs u've been spewing for years. We're gonna do this, we're gonna do that. We're back, 12-0 or 11-1 at worse. Our players are all-americans, favorite for the Heisman, the 'efense will be so much better... Same old tired wouldas, couldas, shouldas, maybes, might haves, could have, what ifs and buts blah blah blah...

Since 2006, this is u ...

Overall 48-40 record and 20 of those wins were over non-conference scrubs and the Dukes and Wakes of the acc ... so ur actually 28-40 over just halfway decent competion...

2 NON-WINNING SEASONS ...

NOT 1 ACC Title game in forever...

The last time u beat a ranked team was week 1 of the 2009 Season. That's 36 games and 3 seasons ago...

Unranked 4 straight seasons ...

ur last 1st. rounder draft pick ? who knows, but it's been years and will remain that way...

Disgraced the old lady OB in her finale in the epic fail of all cane thang times ...

Best offense talent in the country but got shut down COMPLETELY 3 times by the only 3 ranked teams u played last year.

u delusional tools are the Kardashians of all football fans...

.

HOLA ARTY !!! Rise n Shine Bro ... 17 days until the # 9 RANKED MIGHTY GATORS open the 2013 in the SWAMP against a better team, program and higher ranked Toledo squad than duh u... Open practices this Thurs-Sat-Mon-Tues. HOLLA BRUTHER !!!

And BOTH Ga.Tech and Ohio St. finished UNRANKED at the end of 2011...

It's been over 3 years since u beat a Ranked team... It's documented on Miami's official website. Look it up.

Lol. You are all fools

INJURIES ??? HuH ?


Ur lack of QUALITY Depth will doom U again like it has the last 8 Seasons... Then U'll be Golden Parrots crying, "We were young and had to play 15 Freshman" again... Tell me this, how can one program be so young and inexperienced for nearly a decade ?

Nice of Coach Golden to say good things about Grimble and help him find a new school to play for afterall, anybody remember a guy named Arthur Brown? What is he up to these days? Remember when he left UM, transferred to K-State because he "so-called" didn't measure up? Grimble will find his way. Like I said yesterday, the kid traveled a long way to attend UM and should have been given more time to mature and develop to fit our team needs. I find it quite a coincidence that Golden gets an influx of DL transfers and now Grimble is gone. The Northeast boys Golden has recruited better be able to stop somebody.

Miami is the best football program ever. We are back so sit back and start crying cause there is nothing you can do about. Duke is going to be one of the very best rbs ever. We will smash florida and fl state.

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!

This statement by Coach Golden is why I feel the "U" will finish at around 9-3 instead of 11-1. "We've got a long way to go to be the type of defensive line we want to be both in development and then the acquisition. They (new arrivals) give us some maturity right now and help us recover from a tough two years in the recruiting end."

This is where good teams will expose the "U"s most glaring weakness. Yes the Defense is older, bigger and stronger. But the fact that the "U" has not recruited top quality d-lineman and linebackers, aside from D. Perryman, in a number of years leads me to believe that 9-3 is where they will be at the end of the year.
As much as it pains me to say it, I think the "U" will lose to N. Carolina, FSU and UF. Still good enough to play in the ACC Championship. Go Canes.

"I just think we're not in a situation where we can just sit back and go on automatic pilot and just let the depth take care of itself. We're still growing and learning. In a lot of places we're still not veteran."

ExcUse U ? Depth ?

Just 2 weeks ago, EVERYONE KILLED the u tough program... The ENTIRE Team was Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Older, Experienced and READY !!! Two weeks later ? Ur still young, growing,learning and not veteran... Lap it up Cane Clucks. Same story, new year... U dopes are like Golenden starry Eyed Hitler Youths when Dear Golden Ruler Speaks.

And so it begins... And it's not even September yet.

Golen's above quote ... Read it, memorize it, regurgitate it cane clucks. It'll be u'll go to come December leading up to next Spring when u'll "Be Back Next Year" for the 9th. year in a row.

"I say this constantly, but I don't feel good about anything right now."

.


Yes U do Coach ... Yes U do ...

Asked about how his new defensive linemen looked in Tuesday's practices, Golden said: " I'm excited about all the guys. All of the young guys are trying to make their way in and whether its [Ufomba] Kamalu and those [new arrivals] they're bringing some maturity where we desperately need it. We're not out of the woods yet on the D-line. You guys know that. We've got a long way to go to be the type of defensive line we want to be both in development and then the acquisition.

.

Miami recently announced the additions of two transfers on the defensive line: former Wisconsin standout David Gilbert and former Virginia backup lineman Justin Renfrow.


.

Manny, why do u do this to these pinheaded cane clucks? u used the word "standout" ? An all-conference honorable mention is "standout" ? Why didn't he enter the NFL draft is he was such a "standout" ? Go ahead and tell'm Manny... It's because 1.) he wasn't even considered for the NFL combine... 2.) He doesn't just have a foot injury, it's been an over 2 years chronic foot injury that has required multiple surgery. .3 Not ONE NFL team, after physicals, invited him to ANY camp. So now, he decides to get a year of free Grad school and u are the only weak sister to offer him. So he's ur dead weight now that will surely be a "standout" in the classroom and training room getting weekly treatment... Now this "career backup" from Virgina ? wow, no words, but I'm sure he's a smart, hard working kid that has a never ending motor, kinda like a 1960's Evinrude 9.9 horsepower handheld outboard that's ssslllllloooowwww and never gets anywhere on time. Just more added dead weight, garbage, no football talent that Goldie loves to develope. Good luck with that. They'll both be non-contributors, 1 year n done ghosts. But u fools will somehow manage to convince ur stupid selves that these two d-line duds will contribute and help u finally win the 8th. best conference in college football, the acc championship...

For those of u that will be axing all season long, "hey, where's that awesome d-line transfer from Whisky?" He'll be the one week after week "standing out" on the sideline in shorts, flip flops and clean jersey just watching ...

Congrats Jalen Grimble, the pain has mercifully ended for u... Go join one of the very few SEC Schools that need D-Line help, play in a real Conference, in real packed Stadiums, against real Players, in front of real fans and give yourself a real shot at playing at the next level.

Tell me this, how can one program be so young and inexperienced for nearly a decade ?


What great insight this is! Can you answer the question canefan? ExcUse you.

"Miami is the best football program ever. We are back so sit back and start crying cause there is nothing you can do about. Duke is going to be one of the very best rbs ever. We will smash florida and fl state."

Dang you stole my thunder! But you are too conservative. This team is the best cane team ever. This is the best offense in the NCAA. Golden is the best coach in the world. Duke and Morris will battle for the Heisman. We will go undefeated and win the NC.
Gotta love that coach Golden!

Finally, you've got a wingnut claiming the team is not in good physical shape, yet, their conditioning testing broke/crushed all records at UM under longtime strength and conditioning coach, Andreu Swasey .

Posted by: Ron Zook | August 14, 2013 at 02:32 PM

.

WRRRRRRONG !!! Those WERE NOT MIAMI RECORDS... Those were Golden's 300 page Binder, Temple's and Penn. St. Records u dope... This team couldn't beat the Canes teams from 1983-2001 in ANYTHING Physical or Mental, on or off the field. Get it Scrrraight Zooker.


btw- can't wait to see that pre-snap 'Efense all lined up with everyone pointing, making calls and ur corners 12 yards off the ball... The with the SNAP of the Ball, looking like a room full of Cockroaches when the lights turn on.

Hmmm. Problems on the offensive line, as in nobody to back somebody up just in case....

How is all of that happening? Could be conditioning? Maybe just weight stats. I've never really heard of that. This might come down to a weight thing. My guess is that 'Goldy wants the OL playing at a certain collective weight average.

That's not good. It's not winning football. It's just likeI said, UM needs a "trench" coac and not somebody kicking back in da chair trying to figure things while collectiing dough.

Ha! Morons talking to morons...it's a cowardly gator thang baby!

Constantly taking Coach Golden's comments out of context will not help the cowardly gators come September 7th.

You gators desperately want the approval of your superiors, the Miami Hurricanes, and that's just not going to happen.

September 7th will give the newly minted championship Hurricanes, led by the best college football coach in America--Al Golden, the opportunity to beat-up the cowardly gators once again...and they will make the Louisville beat down of the cowards appear to be close game.

Louisville scores again!

The 5 time National Champion Miami Hurricanes score again and again and again!!! And the cowardly gators pee-wee league offense gets obliterated by the mighty Canes!!!

C'mon down cowardly gators as we are going to beat your arses in the parking lot, the stands and on the field!!!

Chit, the typical major college football would expect a higher ranked team defense than NO.116. Especially seeing that both Goldie and his D-coordinator are on a 24-7-365 watch concerning your players and what not. huh

According to that ron zook AKA Sarasota cane and like-minded Cane bUbba's.

Both Goldie and his D-coordinator are on a 24-7-365 watch concerning the players, yet all that got them was the NO.116 ranked team defense. Go blood figures. Eh. What say.

QUALITY of Depth, Rather Than QUANTITY of Depth ... GATORS -- u

Muschamp Sees Gators Develop Depth Across Offensive Line ...


Florida coach Will Muschamp is finding no shortage of options to fill his offensive line through 12 practices of camp.

“I really feel like you've got seven or eight guys across the board that can play quality football,” Muschamp said Monday. “Tyler Moore can play multiple positions, both guard and both tackle positions and certainly be an emergency center if something were to happen.

“Chaz Green is playing very well at right tackle. Jon Halapio is a guy that has shown he can play really well at right guard and can be a great leader for our team. Jon Harrison is having an outstanding camp. Kyle Koehne can play any of the inside positions and would be a backup center if we were to slot him.”

Muschamp also singled out guard Ian Silberman, tackle D.J. Humphries and junior college transfer Trenton Brown, who is pushing for significant playing time at tackle.

“Trenton Brown is going to play for us this year, he's a good football player,” Muschamp said. “Whether he plays left tackle or right tackle, we're kind of experimenting, but we feel very comfortable with four tackles and then a combination of inside guys.”

.

GATORS FAR MUCH BETTER QUALITY DEPTH AT -- O-LINE -- D-LINE -- LB's -- DB's -- RB's -- Equal at QB and WR with no preseason All-SEC or acc players at either position for either team... It's not even close.

What the hell is it with these injuries every year out of the gate? I can't think of a recent year that I looked forward to the season without the fear of hearing about injuries. It has gotten automatic and I don't believe it is just coincidence. Something ain't right.

My money on D as dumbest Section of the Sybil brain here.

Says Grimble too short to play inside. Be sure to tell Sapp and Wilfolk who are also 6'2". Idiot.

Cool Cat moving in our his sister Lady Calvina's territory with the men's weight obsession.

J brought a wildly superior team that was completely unprepared or motivated to play Penn State in a national championship game and got waxed. Does that mean that JJ was a bad coach? Of course not, but the normal suspects on this blog would have called for the man to be fired.
//////////////////////////////

Somebody tell this imbecile to learn football. The rest of the 1986 team was very prepared for this game, go and pull up the stats the only one who was an imbecile like the guy who said this was vinny testaverde and his 5 "all of a sudden color blind" interceptions. This guy is not a real UM fan or didn't have a t.v. back than to be able to watch the game, otherwise, foolish statements like the one above would never be uttered.

Furthermore, here's the definition of an unprepared team:
Miami 13 Kansas St. 52
Miami 3 notre shame 41
Miami 52 duke 45
Miami 40 Virginia 41

1986 Championship Game
Miami 10 penn disgrace 14

Anybody who says what this clown said up top is a class A moron!

So hopefully the imbecile who said that can see the difference between prepared and unprepared!

Soooo....hariet rubman gets poked with a stick then the fake don soldy shows up on full tilt. ...

Bob-

Most all college and pro teams have a variety of injuries during fall camp/two-a-days each and every year. Just today New England's Brady went down during practice with a knee injury, not to mention all the injuries the gators have reported and Steve Spurrier did the same thing yesterday. Coach Golden was simply pointing out that he is seeing an inordinate amount of injuries on the offensive line.

What is funny when reading the normal suspects accusations concerning Coach Golden's comments is the same nit-wits were crying and complaining that Randy Shannon would not talk about injuries during his tenure.

This statement by Coach Golden is why I feel the "U" will finish at around 9-3 instead of 11-1. "We've got a long way to go to be the type of defensive line we want to be both in development and then the acquisition. They (new arrivals) give us some maturity right now and help us recover from a tough two years in the recruiting end."

The question has to be asked, besides looking at UM film/games before he got here, what d-line has coach goldie seen or coached that was dominant. His idea of a dominant d-line would've been notre shame's this past season when anybody could see that that notre shame team was solid but nothing special like when they had chris zorich tearing college football up, he's the one player in notre shame history that balled.

oh for god's sake, goldie, Stop whining!!!!

If you have six big linemen, they can play both offense and four down lineman defense and special teams.

Hint: Get the Canes in good physical conditioning like running down to Key Largo and back every day. And you will have no problems and no injuries, dumbazz.

You are definitely not worth what they are paying you.

ROFL he luv's to start crying right before the season, coach goldie knows this is his last real year of excuses, somewhere there is a blimp with his name on it if he doesn't step it up. keep railroading players that you need as well!

Who do we hate?? Florida State!! What do we eat?? Gator meat!! CANES [[_]]
