Windy, Windy, many times do I have to tell you that UM coaches ONLY listen to the fans at Canespace when it comes to making personnel decisions. C'mon man, U should know better by now? Posted by: 86Cane | April 10, 2017 at 12:37 PM You're right Soup, how can I forget. If Allison, Weldon, Perry or Sherriffs want to start, he MUST hire Epi, CR, VAC, TSully, Old Skool, Hassan or another Canespace street agent. Otherwise, he won't have a chance to see the field

CR, I like the Sherriffs/Ryan Williams comparison, with the differences being RW was not as mobile but RW was a little more consistent and accurate on this throws. But the QB position will be won by the QB who shows the most promise in CMR's offense. If Perry is the guy, CMR will know it by the middle of Fall camp. CMR probably will not start Perry to begin the season, but if the starter struggles, Perry will be ready. But Perry is a tall, very skinny QB. Perry has a great arm and all the raw tools to thrive in CMR's offense. Lamar Jackson demonstrated that a mobile QB can be very effective, even if his passing skills are average. Instincts are as a QB in an option offense are critical. Perry has a better arm than Lamar Jackson. Perry may not be as fast as Lamar Jackson , but he is close. More important, Perry appears to have the instincts and vision to make the CMR offense very explosive. We will see. If Perry performs well in practice, the players will also lobby CMR to put him in, and coaches do sometimes listen to players when their requests make sense. A good QB also lifts the confidence and spirit of a team both on offense and defense.

CMR definitely knows the QB position, so he will have his QBs ready to play. I think Kaaya would have put up some great numbers and helped his draft stock immensely had he returned for his senior year. CMR called plays that had him make NFL throws in tight windows. CMR designed his play calling to Kaaya's strengths. But CMR wants a more mobile QB to run the offense so that it can reach its full potential. This year's QB will now have the added mobility. Mobile QB will also open up holes for Walton so defenses can't focus just on stopping him in the run game. The run-pass-option or a triple option will open things up and this offense can be very explosive with the right QB who can make the proper reads. This offense will focus on getting the speedy playmakers matched up so if they break a tackle or make someone miss, the Canes will have a big play. Kaaya could pass the ball, but was never a credible threat to run the football. Kaaya also couldn't read the DEs on a QB option or dive play. In spite of that, Walton had a great year. Give Walton a mobile QB with good instincts, and you will have a lot of open holes and explosive plays for all the playmakers that the Canes now have.

Media reports say that Rosier and Sherriffs were working with the first team and splitting reps. If true, this likely means a Rosier/Sherriffs battle for now, with Allison and Testeverde fighting for the third string spot. Perry will likely be given a shot once he arrives. I don't think Perry will start to begin the season, but he will likely be given a shot to start before the season ends. FSU looks beatable. FSU is talented but the Canes are better at most positions, except FSU is better at QB and OL

Good decision for BRUCE Brown to return for another year. Brown has a chance to play point guard and develop as an NBA prospect. It's a good thing for the Canes. The Canes will be loaded and will definitely be ranked to start the season
Go Canes! Posted by: Go Canes! | April 02, 2017 at 09:28 AM Wow! This is how you win championships! Obviously, you have an extraordinary athlete Richards with the ball, but the hustle and determination of Walton to Obliterate that DB is that extra effort that will make a difference between being a good ACC team and being a ACC champion. Your offensive MVP busts his tail so he can make a block 40 yards downfield with enthusiasm and help boost other players stats and help the team win. All of his teammates will play FOR and WITH Walton!

...But the biggest thing that kept AG from success at Miami was he didnt hire killer assistants. Posted by: Dude | April 01, 2017 at 03:05 AM I agree 100%

I discussed every position group in a big @ss post. If you want to chime in on it go right ahead. Posted by: Dude | March 28, 2017 at 11:55 AM Liked your overall assessment of the team and agree with everything. I do have slightly higher hopes for the Canes offensive line, because they are deeper and more talented than last year. This 2017 offensive line class was the best Canes offensive line class in over a decade, so the Canes will be deeper with the freshmen pushing the starters for playing time.
I knew CMR would recruit South Florida well, but this 2018 class is ridiculous! The Canes are stacked with high-end south Florida talent. I haven't seen recruits committed like this in over a decade. CMR and his staff are amazing
Player comp: Antonio Gates Posted by: 30CINCO | March 26, 2017 at 12:38 AM I don't know about the Gates and Newton comparisons, but the analysis of Njoku as a receiver and blocker is spot on. This is exactly what I observed when I watched him play live. It will be interesting to see who drafts him. Looking for Njoku to extend the Canes first round draft pick streak to three straight years
VAC has coached and been around some really good football splayers over the years. Some of the best. It always fascinates me to see players develop from youth football to NFL player. It must be even more fascinating to coach such player and see so many grow from up close. Thanks for sharing VAC and thanks for asking the question Hassan

Great first day of spring practice. I thought Donaldson would eventually start, but didn't think he would be a Day 1 starter. I saw him a few times, and he is massive. He moves well for a big guy. Interested to see what Gus Fekder does to trim that baby fat from him. Donaldson can be a dominant lineman. The best OL at UM since Eric Flowers.

How was Amari Carter only a three star? It seems Palm Beach county is under appreciated by the rating sites. Too many great players from Palm Beach County are underrated by recruiting sites. The Canes have some great three star players. Several will be NFL on rosters some day

Per PBP, Kaaya loves the U: ESPN posted two videos with Gruden, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach, and the former Hurricanes quarterback. First, Gruden asks Kaaya about his first college start, when Louisville smacked him around in a Sept. 1, 2014 loss. “This is a tough way to start,” he said. “But I learned a lot. I knew there would be times were I’d have to take shots and I wasn’t going to feel great. But at the end of the day, this ‘U’ means a lot more than my body, than someone else’s body, than anyone else around me.

No question Richards was the best freshman receiver in the country last year: Posted by: Go Canes! | March 14, 2017 at 08:19 AM Boy, did a lot of prognosticators and recruiters underestimate Richards! How was he ranked #48 before the season? I watched him play in that first game against FAMU, and it was obvious that he had the talent to be the Canes #1 receiver. I bet There are a lot WRs on that list #1-48 thinking, "Man, I should have gone to Miami!" Glad we have CMR and Duggans recruiting and developing receivers in Coral Gables.

The Canes can beat Michigan State. The Canes also could shock Kansas

I have been hearing very positive things about CMR and his staff for over a year now. This staff doesn't try to sell recruits with smoke and mirrors. They are expressing interest in recruits and in their development, and they are showing recruits they know what they are doing. They are showing recruits how they can develop them as players and as productive citizens. CMR's staff have really connected with recruits and their families in a real and unique way!

Why not Miami? We have a better roster than anyone on that side. Posted by: TonyCane | May 25, 2016 at 01:36 AM And now, better coaching to go along with that better roster

Ritch has some really good players in this class. I saw many of them play in high school. They are fast and athletic - I don't care what the recruiting sites say their star ratings are, there are some future NFL draft picks in the incoming class and 2017 class.

Interesting: Denver Kirkland, a Booker T. Alumn who went with Alex Collins to Arkansas, made himself eligible after his junior year for the NFL draft, but wasn't drafted. He should have played at OL-U. He could have played closer to home and would have gotten a more realistic assessment of his skills. The U puts more OLs in the pros than Arkansas. The south Florida pipeline to Arkansas is broken

I Dallas but I still hope we get Jerry Judy... Posted by: CoCane | May 21, 2016 at 11:47 PM I agree 100%. Canes are thin at receiver. The more talented receivers the better
