As the Miami Hurricanes offensive line turns -- and other depth-chart drama heading into North Carolina

Just when the UM receivers were hitting their stride, along comes more good news.

Rashawn Scott is back -- well, at least on the depth chart.

Al Golden released his Week 6 Depth Chart tonight, and the 6-2. 199-pound junior is listed for the first time since sustaining a collarbone/shoulder injury opening night (Aug. 30) against FAU. Scott, last year's second-leading receiver with 512 yards and three touchdowns on 35 catches, is listed as a third-team wideout behind No. 1 Allen Hurns and No. 2 Stacy Coley.

Last we talked to Golden, Scott was "close'' but had not taken any hits. We'll update that tomorrow when UM reopens access to reporters.

***Also nice to see is sophomore safety Deon Bush get an "or'' between his name and Kacy Rodgers II's at safety. Deon has been getting more game action lately since recovering from hernia surgery. He recorded a sack and forced fumble on the same play at USF, and last Saturday against Georgia Tech flattened Georgia Tech kick returner Griffin on the Yellow Jackets' 17-yard line.

*** On the defensive line, Virginia transfer Justin Renfrow now finds himself locked in a three-way tie at tackle with usual fifth-year senior starter Curtis Porter and sophomore Earl Moore, who has seen his share of scout team this season, but also picked off a pass against Savannah State. Renfrow had six tackles and a forced fumble against Georgia Tech.

*** Also on the D-line, Jelani Hamilton is in a tie for the No. 2 spot with Ufomba Kamalu behind Anthony Chickillo.

*** On the last depth chart, cornerback Artie Burns was behind Ladarius Gunter. Now, Burns and Tracy Howard are listed as co-starters, with Howard's name listed first.

*** As the offensive line turns (or should we say, takes turns): Usual right guard Brandon Linder, a 6-6, 319-pound senior who earned All-ACC Honorable Mention last year after starting all 12 games at that spot, is now the starting right tackle for Thursday's North Carolina game in Chapel Hill. Linder started the Georgia Tech game at right guard, but switched during the game to right tackle, with Jared Wheeler taking his spot at right guard. Wheeler is first-team right guard for UNC, with Alex Gall behind him.

Shane McDermott gets his second start in as many weeks at center after returning from a foot injury.

Jon Feliciano is at left guard after replacing the suspended Seantrel Henderson at right tackle for the start of last week's game.

Henderson, back in the lineup, is now the backup to Linder at right tackle.

Ereck Flowers remains at left tackle.

*** At tight end, Asante Cleveland has moved up as a co-starter with Clive Walford. Walford had a great touchdown catch last game in the second quarter, but he was also intended to be part of one play in which Stephen Morris threw a pick. Walford was tightly guarded, but he never even turned around.

 *** Tailback Eduardo Clements (hamstring) again is not on the depth chart.

*** On special teams, freshman Stacy Coley is now a co-starter at punt returner, but his name is listed above Phillip Dorsett's, as opposed to being listed after Dorsett last week.

   And at kick returner, it looks as if Dorsett won that job over Duke Johnson this week. Last week, however, Johnson was listed as the No. 3 kick returner behind Dorsett "or'' Coley. In the latest depth chart, Coley isnt listed as a kick returner.

I got a bad feeling about this game.

Miami should run the table. Need FSU to be undefeated when Miami takeover Doak Campbell Stadium. Need quality wins for strength of schedule.Will someone please tell this coaching staff. Do not use the Duke for kick returns unless it's an emergency.Look at some Reggie Bush plays at USC. This is the way Duke talent should be utilize. This team has put themselves in position to make a serious run for the title game .At this point every game is a title game.. Why not win it all.Do you want to be in the conversation or the conversation.

I wouldn't use duke or stacy coley unless we needed a game changing moment. Also the less touches duke gets the more you'll get out of him in the return game, the more you use him in the return game the more teams can prepare for em. Plus he's the starting runningback, why wear this man down unnecessarily. Coach goldie talking about morris not being a good teammate because he needs to let them know when he's injured, well the same applies to him not being a good headcoach by selfishly always throwing duke out there on special teams trying to always get a big play out of your starting runningback for sake of possbly one touchdown, what's coach goldie going to say next, "duke needs to let me know when he's getting worn down".

To hear coach goldie act as if he couldn't see hat smo17 was injured is ridculous.

One thing for sure though, it's no surprise the o-line did what they did, once they inserted my boy jared wheeler in the game, i'm not sure why this man hasn't been starting all along, you'd be hard pressed to find somebody that hustles on every play as hard as him, he's been that way for along time. In highschool he was always running down with the runningbacks, on effot alone this man needs to be out there.

I don't.. Keep that to yourself

I'm going b a LL s deep into Calvin!!!

D can't believe you don't want to watch me stretch Calvin's poop chute.

What r u talking about? Golden never said morris was a bad teammate. Some guys were talking about whether he was or not on this blog.

As far as duke, i understand the logic of keeping duke off KR team. However, saying golden is selfishly putting him out there is a dumb statement. He is our best weapon back there, but teams arent kicking away from him which means they want extra touches to get extra shots and wear him down a bit.

I am also worried about this game..
come out fast come out heavy on these guys get up 14 and then get out of there with nobody gets hurt

Calvin:

You sir are an idiot

I'm rubbin one out right now to my Randy Shannon poster.

I'm glad Dorsett is second on punt returns, he doesn't look decisive at all.

Will im hitting from the back

stop it guys. LMAO.

I agree that Duke shouldnt be put on returns. If he is our starting tailback, then he needs the rock 20-30 times a game. Coley is a dangerous retruner also.

I always worry when we play Carolina. Somehow there is something about these Carolina teams that they rise up when they play Miami. They look like crap against East Carolina or whatever- they are 1-4, but they will play Miami like they are BCS contender.

FIRST OF ALL IF OUR DEFENSE IS DOING IT'S JOB THAN DUKE WILL NOT HAVE TO RETURN MANY KICKOFFS AND IF NEEDED HE SHOULD BE USED BECAUSE HE IS ONE OF IF NOT THE BEST RETURN SPECIALIST IN THE COUNTRY.. WHAT NEED TO CHANGE IS TO REMOVE DORSETT FROM PUNT RETURNS. DUKE DOES NOT NEED TO EXCEED 20 CARRIES BECAUSE THERE IS STILL A LOT OF THE SEASON LEFT. NOTHING WAS WRONG LAST YEAR WITH HIS TOUCHES AND HIS PERFORMANCE LAST YEAR.. AS FAR AS NC IS CONCERN DON'T WORRY THEY WILL PLAY US TOUGH BUT IF WE PLAY "CANE FOOTBALL CUT DOWN ON TURNOVERS WE STILL WIN BY 17. CANNOT DO ANYTHING TO PREVENT INJURIES EXCEPT WHEN THERE IS A BLOW OUT TAKE YOUR STARTERS OUT.

WINNING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are all these people on this post Fla Gators...Dammm!

Hell NO!!

Seriously, stop trolling Calvin. He had his opinion but manned up and said he was wrong when the D actually showed up this year. I'm glad Gallo is gone though. Nothing but crap came outta that guys posts.
NC is not a joke, Canes gotta go to their house and they have lost three in a row. Not a good combination.. trap game right here. Go Canes!

CANES. we have not seen the best of this team. We put UF in situation they are in by drilling them in the trenches on both sides of ball. We should be able to score on anyone with the talent on offense, yes bama, tx tech and fl state. the d will b sufficient and on the front will get better. will see much more pressure.

Calvin is a lying piece of crap.

Makes hundreds of comments and then pulls 1 out months later and says what he "always thought". Like the Canes D nonsense and how they would stink this year.

When most folks were predicting we'd be in the top half, nothing from that bonehead.
