Do you like noon games? Also: injury update, Preston Dewey and #76000strong #sheesh

 

Do you like noon games?

Hopefully you do, because the Canes have another one on Sept. 28th.

But this time it's on the road against USF, and will be televised on either ABC, ESPN or ESPNU, according to the ACC.

The network will be announced Sept. 22.

Meanwhile, this week's game against FCS team Savannah State (1-2) is at 7 p.m. on ESPN3. The Canes (2-0), which dropped from No. 15 to 16 in the AP Poll and rose from 18 to 17 in the Coaches', conclude their three-game homestand Saturday.

The players are doing their best, it seems, to treat this game like any other. Al Golden is doing a very good job immersing them in his process-oriented culture. They know just how good -- or rather, bad -- this opponent is, but seem to be zoned in on the moment and learning and improving and working on what they need to do. 

Golden's philosophies have really begun to seep deep, at least from what I see.

Anyway, I spoke with A.J. Highsmith for a while today and he was really appreciative of the crowd that showed up for the Florida game.

"Thank you to everyone who came out today! #76000strong #sheesh," Highsmith tweeted.

"I've been here before when there was nobody in the stadium,'' Highsmith told me. "It was really fun to have that atmosphere. I wish we could get that again. It would mean a lot, because of how far we've come.''

QUICK HITS:

* WR Rashawn Scott (shoulder/collarbone) was at practice wearing a red (no-contact) jersey. Golden said he expects him back "sometime before or after North Carolina" on Oct. 17.

* Golden also said he expects OL Danny Isidora (broken foot/surgery) back around that time.

* Deon Bush (hernia surgery) has moved to backup safety, as opposed to third-team on the depth chart. But Golden wasn't saying whether Bush will play Saturday. The coach said he had to look at tape first.

* UM confirmed earlier today that former scholarship quarterback Preston Dewey, who would have been a redshirt freshman, is enrolled as a Miami student but is no longer on the football team. Dewey is still on scholarship, but not as it relates to the football team. He is not counted as one of the 105 players. He is working as a sports marketing intern. I've been told backup quarterback Ryan Williams also will serve as a sports marketing intern. Williams, of course, is still playing.

The SEC West has asked the SEC LEast to leave the conference immediately. The LEast is killing the SEC's reputation, SOS and prestige.

You know who you are, LEast. Tennessee, VAndy, UK, UGA and, worst of all, UFailure. South Carolina can stay so long as it beats UCF in two weeks.

Peeeeeeeee Ewwwwwwwwwwww.


My guess is that Dewey saw some kind of writing on the wall. Why not switch him to another position? Right now that's a scholarship somebody else could use.

Savannah State will be the easiest game ever at UM.


Don't bet on it. This is the game UM could loose and ruin everything. Shannon would have this team in the top 5 by now, playing for the Nat Championship. You all drank the Kool-Aid, Gallo keep it up man, I love the stats. Very enlightening

Shannon was a terrible coach. We would not have the players we have now nor would they have beaten Florida, nor would they be in the shape these kids are in, you have no clue what you are talking about. Just look back and you will see it.

Shannon couldn't even develop these kids the way Golden and his staff are doing. The perfect example of these kids are now in the NFL where they have real coaches.

What a dumb statement.

To Maria: Please don't take these guys seriously. The guy you are responding to and a few others are trying to elicit a response. Even they know how foolish their statements are. When you respond to their foolishness, they win.

Then if UM loses, that's the death knell for the DC. I cannot fathom SS winning.

Savannah State is pretty much the same as the gatrs offensively. Both cant win on the road. The difference is that SS is improving, while the gatrs are getting worse.

In fact, the gatrs are yet to score 27 points, at least Savannah State has accomplished that.

I would be more worried about Savannah State than the .500 gatrs.

And you should be. SS won't "give" the game to UM like UF did. UM didn't earn it, so it really doesn't mean much. SS will take them into the 4th qtr. Morris is not coached at the level he was under Shannon. % titles, it would be 7 if Randy was still here.

Some of the comments are amazing, I am literally laughing while trying to understand the desired response. Thanks for the laughs - randy.

LMAO & The lowly UFraid Troll is here posting under multiple usernames as always. Your Banjo Boys got wrecked. Your opinion was already worthless, but now it's just invalid.

Quick question... What did you do with the 2011 stats? How about the stats over turnovers, penalties, and ugliness of the program.

Jim Gallo - SHUT THE F*CK UP.

Come back after the 2014 season and tell us all about how Randy Shannon compares to Al Golden.

@JaxCane that does not working the world of Shallow Gallo!

Shallow Gallo has his own agenda and that is to spout how much he loves the U and cares about the players, but he hates golden/dnofrio.

Long ago I said I would reserve comments about dnofrio until after the Florida Game...I like the way the D is playing...looks like a little swag to me.

I will no reserve comments about the Offense till after the USF Game. That give UM 3 weeks to fix the issues of the first 2 games.

Keep in mind, we go all our Offense back, but we are breaking in a new OC, TE, WR, and RB Coach. Do any of us feel Coack K is a bad OLine Coach? If so, there are very few that have complained about Coach K...in fact, I recall most all on this Blog crying about how they wanted him back...even Shallow Gallo.

Notice I am not calling out Calvin...impressed with the Crow Eating and how he took it...it is a Real Man who can step up and take responsibility for ones actions...

Shallow Gallo said he will not accept Golden untill he wins a NC...well if we apply that logic...he really has no reason to referance Shannon as being acceptable as a HC.

As UM fixed the Defense, I expect they will fix the Offense...Only time will tell, so until the prove Shollow Gallo correct...Shallow Gallo...STFU!

Might need to change the name to Swallow Gallo!

Bleeding Orange, Green & White!

THIS IS JUST BULL CRAP THIS TEAM IS MOVING FORWARD AND ALL SOME OF US HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IS COACH SHANNON ? C'MON MAN SHANNON IS A HURRICANE FOR LIFE AND IS PARTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR A COUPLE OF THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS THAT WE HAVE BUT SHANNON IS NOT THE COACH MOST OF US WISH HIM WELL BUT WE'VE MOVED ON.. WHY NOT TALK ABOUT WHAT'S GOOD AND BAD OR WHAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED WITH THE CURRENT CANE TEAM.. WE ARE IN THE TOP 20 RIGHT NOW AND IF THIS TEAM CAN KEEP WINNING WE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE UP AND ALL OF THIS WITHOUT COACH SHANNON.. I'M NOT A FAN OF COACH D'NOFRIO BUT I'M A CANE FAN AND IF THEY ARE WINNING I HAVE TO HOPE THAT THESE COACHES ARE SUCCESSFUL AND SO FAR SO GOOD.. GO CANES BEAT THE HELL OUT OF SAVANNAH ST AND DON'T LET THEM SCORE..

The hilarious reality...Savannah State would demolish Tennessee...the cowardly Gators next tomato can opponent.

Miami 21 Cowards 16

Preston dewey has had back problems. In my opinion, keep the kid on scholie. It aint his fault that he had back issues. Miami recruited him, they owe him that, and tney are doing the right thing

Go canes

Cmon Calvin, are you really trying to say AG is the one who set the schedule? really? Sometimes I feel what you are saying but other times you need to put down the salvia or whatever it is you're smoking.

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

I'm not sure if people understand how the scheduling aspect goes. Some games on the schedule the current coach has say in on it and some games can't be changed, all games are not set years down the road. For instance, coach goldie could've accepted to play lsu next year to open the season, he rejected that one. This is his 3rd year here, do you really not think coach goldie didn't have a say in some of the scheduling this year in his first year, it's not a coincidence we have as many home games as we have this year, remember, coach goldie is well organized, this guy plans things years in advance. Of course he couldn't change the gaytor game, that was set before he got here, but he definitely help to plan around that game. It's not a knock on goldie that he's trying to do what he think is best for UM, it's just a conflict of what UM was built upon, anybody, anytime, anywhere. Trust me when i tell you though, coach goldie is slowly morphing into what a real UM mindset is, the llnger you're in Miami, you have no choice, to many real people down here.

Keep reaching u monkey..Gallo/ Calvin /tubby

Gallo, have you considered a career in politics? You have consistently demonstrated the required attributes: Un-informed, self-serving, hypocritical, liar, factually challenged, deceitful, spineless. You would do well.

Where is the idiot or mrs critical that used the words; canespace........, ehhhh....what say..... all last yr and the off season???? Plz come back ! 21-16 Pal

I can't believe these guys can't get laid with all the sluts up in Gainsbill. I call it Gainsbill because of billy-bob, billy-joe, etc. I literally have gang banged 3 girls from UF with my frat brothers from the U and one of them was Gallo's girlfriend, cousin AND sister. Weird.

Wow... so the "real people" in Miami are rubbing off on Golden now and he's morphing into a real UM mindset. Funny how he just keeps sticking to his "process" and the results have the naysayers trying to plant the seed of his acceptance but on their terms... comical

My favorite Calvin post is when he says "trust me" like he has some type of inside information being fed to him by Randy Shannon.

The only contact he has with anything on the "inside" is the smell that comes from the inside the underwear Randy was wearing his last game here.

Those drawers reek of course from the dump he took when he lost to a crap UCF team, at home, to end another miserable season he put us through.

Please Calvin, STFU.

Dumbest prediction for the week is from dumn dumb D, who proclaims SS will take us into the 4th qtr. They couldn't take Booker T to the 4th qtr.

Ga Southern put 77 points on them. There should be a mercy rule, like in little kid games or when sparring with mental midgets like those in the Sybil pea brain---Calvina, Galloinga, Tub o'lard, Dumb dumb d and all the rest.

I think Gallo is randy Shannon

the only stat that matters in college football aside from wins and losses is scoring defense and red zone d which um is 1 in red zone and 11 pts per game , its early but early for everyone else including louisville and ohio state which have the most pathetic schedule in the country,the only guy that left that is performing at a high level is storm johnson, 2-0

Cool Cat - The article says he is no longer on a football scholarship and is not counted as one of the 105 players.

TK SWANN YOU SAID IT ALL.

The 'U' are the 'Canes.

Go 'Canes

Bridgewater is a chump. Even Jacory would tear up Louisville's weak schedule

D = Douche?

I'm sick of hearing the Gators "gave" the Canes the game. The Canes D TOOK the ball and the game from the Gators. Just. Stop.

Savannah State will be over before halftime.

Oh, and for the people who are commenting on Dewey. He IS still on scholarship and it is NOT counting against the football roster. So it's really the best of both worlds. As good as it can be for Dewey considering his injury.

I get that there are a bunch of trolls on every single UM blog on the internet, but for the rest of us... can we just stop bickering and take Greg Cote's column's advice? Let's ENJOY this moment. And let's come together BEHIND our team.

The Canes and Fins are 2-0. The Canes just had a huge win over a rival and SEC team. Things are looking up. This is a team that is undeniably on the rise.

The offense is a little behind, but this early in the season I'd rather see that than the defense being behind. Let's enjoy this. Because it's all about the U. Go canes! #fullspeedahead

Great point Canes 5 rings. Let's enjoy. Another point earlier, everybody wanted Art Kehoe back including me. What is up with our O line? I don't get it. Big strong experienced but not impressive at all. Am I missing something?

Randy didn't have enough time to get a NC? Really? He was going backwards. More time would have killed the program. I love the guy but not a good head coach. Can't even get a coordinator job. Not because of the color of his skin either. There are plenty of black coaches in college and pro but nobody is calling Randy. Nuff said on that.
