« $450 Best Buy shopping spree, roller-coaster debut, injuries to be announced? | Main | UM Canes TE Walford said he's deciding whether to turn pro. Said he will make decision bowl night. »

UM receiver Herb Waters on crutches today. Not a good thing with Russell Athletic Bowl on Saturday.

The University of Miami's third-leading receiver, 6-2, 188-pound sophomore Herb Waters, was seen on crutches today at The Citrus Bowl as his teammates wrapped up their practice session for the Russell Athletic Bowl.

Though UM coach Al Golden left practice without speaking to the media, It was confirmed that Waters did not practice today and yesterday. This is bad news for the Hurricanes for obvious reasons. The Canes will already be challenge by Louisville's No. 2 rushing defense and No. 8 pass defense.

We do not know for sure if Waters is out of the bowl game, but it doesn't look promising.

Waters, who was identified by Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post as having his "right knee in light brace'' as we watched players such as defensive backs Keion Berry and Nate Dortch and Corn Elder and of course running back Duke Johnson walk off with crutches as well, has 28 catches for 406 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Senior Allen Hurns leads Miami with 60 catches for 1,138 yards and six touchdowns. 

Freshman Stacy Coley has 30 catches for 559 yards and seven touchdowns.

Junior tight end Clive Walford also has 30 catches for 372 yards and two touchdowns.

 Waters' season-high day of nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns came at Duke on Nov. 16.

 His next-best showing was his 73-yard, two-touchdown receiving day at USF on Sept. 28.

The Homestead High graduate played in all 12 games.

 We knew about Duke and Corn and Nate, at least, and Keion has played in two games. Reserve linebacker JaWand Blue had a hard cast on his left arm, but he, too, has played in only two games.

  I also saw big offensive tackle Sunny Odogwu limping severely near the team bus. He has not played in any games this season and will be redshirted.

  As if this game wasn't a big enough challenge for UM, it just became even tougher.

 Hopefully for Miami, veteran receiver Phillip Dorsett, who partially tore the medial collateral ligament of his left knee at North Carolina on Oct. 17, is as game-ready as offensive coordinator James Coley told us he was yesterday.

  Dorsett needs to spring into big-time action.

More sermons.

Where are the articles to the contrary or from the players who don't agree with Howard's willingness to fall on the sword. Where is the from for the other side of this debate.

Reposting these articles does nothing but prove the exist and push of this one-sided agenda and that U are a foot soldier of it. We saw those articles already and we are aware of what motivated them.

Dudes even went out an found Sean Spence and Jordan Futch to give their opinion a forum and exposure to push the national sentiment. Wow.

Where's the Ray Ray, Dyron Dye, Devontae Davis, Danny Dillard, Kevin Nelson, Travis Williams, Luther Robinson, Jalen Grimble, Storm Johnson, Kelvin Cain, Gionni Paul, Eddie johnson, Gabe Terry (dismissed before his arrest), Jontavious Carter, Olivier Vernon, Marcus Forston, Brandon Washington etc of why the were dismissed or chose not to return?

All those reposts prove is that your agenda is the one thats improved and being propagated to the masses. We know that.

How bad could it be when a media outlet agrees to release a player's disparaging comments towards the fans who support and finance the football program? Thats the opinion thats sees the light of day?

Everything thats been and is being written, is contrary to what we see on the field of play--thats a problem.

Tubby still dreaming of his love fest with marble mouth, who was simply an unimaginably bad head coach. Of the many tasks required, RS was the worst PR and Sales head coach in modern cf history. Almost as bad was his playing favorites with players and hs coaches, which set the program back considerably.

Where would U be without my thoughts and posts to piggy back...totally man obsessed.

Ganes fans in full fire extinguish mode again today. Extra points getting players from the worst defense in UM history and the worst defense in the ACC in consecutive years to provide sound bites claiming the MAC losers know jack about stopping any offenses. Extra points for getting the losers replaced, that is.

I found these to support what I say, so go find those opinions in print to support your point of view. That's how we can have a constructive discourse.

So now you join the rhetorical question crew..

They are journalists...Reporters who report. That's what they are supposed to do!!!

"The fans outside, they see the players messing up so they are automatically going to blame it on the defensive coordinator," he said. "Because sometimes in football as a fan, they don't really know football. So when they see guys being cut loose they think `Oh, it's the defensive coordinator's fault.' Really it's the execution from the players. I think we have to do a better job of having his back in the games. Outside people, they don't really know what's going on, don't know football to be honest."

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

As for his comments about "outside" fans. This is the []_[] already know what it is. Uncensored, unapologetic, and []_[]s against the world. We keep it 100% and speak truth at the []_[].

Don't care how much $$$ not-knowing fans give or don't give they don't get a free pass on stupidity.

preach it young man, preach it!!

The funny thing is after the Gators game there wasn't one post mentioning a lack of talent. All season long the post about the defense scheme has been consistent. Even those on the fence earlier has began to use their "eye discipline" and recognize that the No'D guy is garbage.

Mahoney-Pearson for you to be so pro Cane, when are you going to come in here and defend the players? You are steadfast in your defense of Golden tongue and No D but I don't see the rush to defend the players.

I'd be right here, Tubby. You'd remain in the joint states of confusion and delusion.

All of that education but U only amount to being a follower that needs everything explained to him. But others are stupid. Your blame of the players and now support of a player that was given an outlet to insult fans proves that you aren't of nor in support of either of those demographics.

So I'm right, U are an Al Golden/D'No fan period.

Howard can't play, but according to U, he can preach! Great sermon for the man-worshippers who only find importance in and post about aesthetics and appearance related matters--not on field performance.

The point was that those reporters and journalists are purposely neglecting to cover/report from both sides of the argument/discussion.

You'd be right here reading, but U wouldn't be posting. U can't formulate a thought without my lead--check your posts.

Tubby, I enjoy toying with the mentally lightly armed. You are well qualified in the role.

Says the guy that was forced to disguise his already made up internet name in order to continue posting on a sports blog. LMAO

Mentally lightly armed you are

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

That's the point...there are no articles to the contrary to support your lies as your misleading, lie filled posts are not shared by ANYONE that truly knows what has and is transpiring within the program.

If ANY reporter could get current or former players to say salacious things about Al Golden he or she would lite themselves on fire to have their name on top of that story.

You are angry that various members of this blog post articles from acknowledged experts that annihilate your lies and deception.

You have no integrity, you have no backbone...you have no code!!

Now she's attacking the players when they innocently prove everything that comes out of the infected mouths of Harriet, Calvin, Gallo, et al. is nothing but lies.

Howard is inside the program every single day and has been playing organized football since he was 5 years old. Harriet is an internet hater whose never played a down of football because he doesn't have the courage. Yet, his new argument is Howard stinks as a football player so that's why he's making comments that proves the woman Harriet is a liar and now says that the thousands of reporters across the country are against him, Calvin, etc. not willing to report negative developments with the Canes.

Now think about that comment and then think about the last 3 years starting with Charles Robinson of Yahoo! and the literally hundreds of reporters both local and across the land that eviscerated the Canes on a daily basis for the last 3 years.

Harriet has taken dumb and lying to stratospheric levels, unfortunately for her, like everything else in her life, she's not even a good liar!!

"Howard can't play, but according to U, he can preach"

Damn must I explain everything, I'm not saying Howard, I'm saying that Golden fans insinuate that the players can't play and lack talent, hence the "...but according to U..." There's that little lesson called reading comprehension again.

I have played football and started since my sophomore year--try again lol! Thousands of reporters across the country are against the U, U say so yourself, but those same outlets all around the country specifically love Al Golden---again, please explain how this could be. Why do they see a difference between what UM football historically represented to them, of which they hated. And what Golden represents that they applaud. They don't believe in his coaching acumen because they unanimously pick him to lose big games. So what is it?

I know U don't want to discuss the act of one living their life on lies. Whether they are good ones or bad ones--it should't matter lol!

Having access to players and teams with a tape recorder, doesn't make a person an "expert".

Again Zook, where is your family and jolly lol!

Louisville is second in the country on third down conversion percentage at .559. Conversely, Miami is 7-1 this year and 15-8 under Coach Al Golden when holding opponents to under 50 percent on third down. If the Hurricanes can produce stops on third down, like UCF did against the Cardinals in the last 20 minutes of its 38-35 win, the team has a chance to win 10 games for the first time in nine years, an accomplishment not lost on anyone.

“Not only for me as a senior, but all the seniors on this team they have done a great job of sticking through it,” Morris said. “Especially, with the whole NCAA (thing), we didn’t know what was going to happen. We trusted Coach Golden. We trusted everything he was saying. The seniors stuck together and made it happen.”

Morris: "WE TRUSTED COACH GOLDEN." "WE TRUSTED EVERYTHING HE WAS SAYING!!"

AL GOLDEN IS THE BEST COACH AND RECRUITER IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!!

PS: Notice how the coward Tubby is now backing down from saying Howard stinks and trying to run a which way did they go routine. And even better yet, he claims he played football...maybe...if she's talking the lingerie league!!

Ron, Tubby isn't bright but works hard on her bob and weave. Said it. Didn't say it. You don't understand. You said it, not me. Etc, etc.

Tiresome hater. And a true poser.

Tiresome hater and true poser...that manhandles both of U and then some every single day including Christmas--where are yall families lol!

Fatality.

GKC/mountain, must everything U say be an utter projection of your own self?

U are a proven tiresome hater of me and known poser (see: your coerced new ID)

What a hypocrite.


Howard also had words for those blaming his defensive coordinator for Miami's struggles the last few weeks.

""The fans outside, they see the players messing up so they are automatically going to blame it on the defensive coordinator," he said. "Because sometimes in football as a fan, they don't really know football. So when they see guys being cut loose they think `Oh, it's the defensive coordinator's fault.' Really it's the execution from the players. I think we have to do a better job of having his back in the games. Outside people, they don't really know what's going on, don't know football to be honest."

"I feel like coach D'Onofrio calls great games. It's up to the players to execute."

Howard said D'Onofrio is "a great teacher."

"He knows the game in and out," Howard said. "He's taught me a lot about football since I got here. I think he does a great job telling us what to do and where to be at. And not just him, all the coaches. They relay it to us the best way possible.

"I get mad because I feel like if anything he calls great games. To be honest the fans should be more loyal. When we were 7-0 they were all happy. Now they want him out on his back. But that's the way football goes. I understand it. I'm not mad or anything. But I feel like they're being too hard.

"They're saying all type of crazy things about him. They're acting like we're a .500 team or something. We're not a .500 team. I feel like he calls great games. If they really understood football they might understand that."

Howard is a good, honest kid and has more knowledge about football in his left pinkie than all the haters combined. As he tellingly said; "If they (the haters) really understood football they might understand that."

THE HATERS DON'T UNDERSTAND FOOTBALL!!

Only another baseless assertion, but now about the poor journalists. Now they are in on the conspiracy too...smh

No, they are not...They're reporters. They'd expose their mothers for their journalistic integrity.

I just posted the other day that Howard will be a baller on Sundays. Is he at Duke and Stacy's level of playmaking? Not yet. But he is a baller.

Find where I said Howard can't play and I will leave this blog...

Posted by: Next Man []_[]p aka Mahoney-Pearson | December 25, 2013 at 08:15 PM

Apparently the person I was talking to understood what I was saying and thats really all that matters LOL! Again reading comprehension is lacking.

U just spent Christmas copying and pasting nonsense a football blog...what a loser ROTF! I can't blame the fam for not messing with U--we understand their pain.

I found these to support what I say, so go find those opinions in print to support your point of view. That's how we can have a constructive discourse.

Posted by: Next Man []_[]p aka Mahoney-Pearson | December 25, 2013 at 03:23 PM

You have not posted that article that explains the lack of better results with Al Golden as the head coach. There are no defenders that dominate as much as Al Golden's first year here. As more players leave, that Al Golden did not recruit, the less dominate the players become.

Miami football has always had players that increase their talents, until now. Even worst is that the previous coach had his defenders excelling, as compared to now. That is more proof of the ineptitude of Al Golden. Nearly as bad as the lack of having one defensive player, in three seasons, as dominate as a former quarterback.

Still waiting for you to simply post the articles with those quotes that Butch Davis allegedly said. Put your money where your mouth is and post the links--problem solved.

Instead you're probably going to resort to the usual ignore, deflect, and then name calling...

What the f is wrong with you bloggers? I mean you sound like a bunch of F'ing Old Ladies sitting around a table playing Canasta. You ALL are broken records who say the SAME things every single day, and yes I've posted this very similar message before.

I mean it's very, very, strange that you simply just keep repeating the same excruciating minutia over and over again. Never have anything positive to say about ANYTHING, I mean do your lives just revolve around Miami football, because if so then you guys have waaay bigger issues than our football team. No one talks about upcoming bowl, and Tubby I bring it up all the time, so don't say I don't, and how to stop TB, or how we can have a 10 win season.

All you guys do is constantly compare past with present, and STILL bring up RS. I mean are you F'ing kidding me? He stunk as an HC, no fire, no passion, looked like a statue on the sidelines, played favorites, had kids in class (that's all he did), and lost HUGE games, and is now ONLY as LB coach. I mean you guys need to focus on this bowl game and back the team, or jeez lueez hit the F'ing bricks.

Play man press coverage, and chunk the wr's at the los to disrupt their timing, and disguise blitz packages, show plays we never used. We may give up a big play or two, but we'll also pressure TB and eventually get some sacks in. On O, try to sustain drives and not score so quickly, unless the opportunity presents itself. Run, run, and run some more, make them respect it, and for God sakes take whoever is open, and not just long bombs. Morris is mobile and if he sees 5 or 10 yds, TAKE it baby take it. We can beat them and be 10-3.

Hola Soldy

Does it surprise me at all that Gallo/Harriet/Calvin/whateverhechangeshisnameto spent Christmas day talking about Al Golden on this blog. That speaks volume about his obsession with the man. Couldn't even come out of the basement on Christmas

Why would Mom let her out?

Mom may cut her internet access, which would be cool.

To my stalker,

Below are the comments I have HONESTLY referenced reported by Bruce Feldman that you claim don't exist. Of course, you will now take Butch's comments out of context and respond with more childish nonsense.

You got what you wanted--now it's your turn to post all of those articles where professional reporters have mirrored the derogatory claims you redundantly level at Coach Golden.

I'm waiting...

Bruce Feldman
Senior College Football Columnist

"I talked it over with my wife. You live a little bit in fear. I thought, 'Well, today they love me, but in 1997 they were flying a plane over the stadium, 'Get Rid of Butch Davis!' It didn't take long to keep reminding yourself that this 80-20 stuff wasn't fair. We made one more stab and called [Miami AD] Paul Dee and he went to the trustees and asked them to make it fair. Finally, we made the change. I wished I hadn't have, but we did."

Another great get by Big Al Golden:

6-3, 305-pound class of 2014 JUCO Defensive Tackle Calvin Heurtelou has picked the Miami Hurricanes.

Do not defend Butch D. You know he told the fans and the administration he was staying, at the same time he was signing on to the NFL Why would anybody from UM want him as a head coach given the way he left for the NFL. Once again it's quantity over quality. We beat out Rutgers and Missouri to big powerhouse programs. Give me a break.

Posted by: canesallnight | December 26, 2013 at 08:44 PM

All you know is hate...a sure sign of a loser!!

Hate and loser doesn't exit in my house. Just because you disagree with the coaches or recruitment of certain players doesn't make you a hater or a loser.You can praise Golden the man, the person as much as you want. No disagreement their. Now Golden the Head Coach we differ. His best chance of winning the ACC was this year with all of the returning starters. Now you playing for pride. Next year will be tough going. Al's 4th year.Will history repeat The bar might be set too high.

Where's the link to Bruce's article? Oh that's right... you HONESTLY referenced them so that's good enough...

As for stalking you... really? Get over yourself dude... All I'm doing is calling bull when I see it... nothing personal but you're delusional about The Canes and with your mindset, your posts always trying out to call out HTC, D, Gallo and Calvin must mean that you're stalking them.

To my stalker,

I just love tightening the noose around your chicken neck. Now you must have a link? Okay, the link is below. What next? Will Butch have to call you and swear those are his words? Here's the thing...I've proven you are a flat-out liar. Butch's comments prove that your kind played a major role in his decision to leave the Canes, which cost the program numerous additional National Championships and put the program in a tailspin...and you are now doing the same thing to Al Golden. Now I'm waiting for you to post all those articles...with links...that support your attacks on Al Golden...I'm waiting you little girl!
