BEST QUOTES: "Lion's, all lion's on the Serengeti; we run like deer and hit like a freight trains." "You spill the play to the belly, back into the middle linebacker, and 10 angry men!" "Now listen, you're a Hurricane now, you get on the field and play with reckless abandon. RECKLESS ABANDON! You play with a complete disregard for your body".

AM: So how did you end up with #2? Rohan: "Charlie Pharms had it and told me I had be in on every tackle in the toilet bowl. First couple of plays were run plays, I came in from the CB position. I loved to hit. I hit Warren Sapp, I hit everyone in that game." AM: Who made you a Linebacker? Rohan: "My first day of practice Coach Soldinger moved me to LB, I thought I was a decent CB. Linebacker? So I go 7-on-7 and it's run, run, run all run. Oh, man I'm eating it up, they couldn't block me. I move up to 2nd string, they still couldn't block me! End of story." "After practice, I'm coming back to the locker room and Warren Sapp says to me, "Rohan they were fucking with you, you should have always been a LB!"

AM: So who do you think you hit the hardest? - Rohan: "In Wide-Right 2 I hit William Floyd so hard he jumped up not knowing where he was. I remember cracking Christian Furia from Colorado. I remember them getting me on a fake the first half, the second time I nearly took his head off. But go ask [UM teammate] Donnell Bennett who hit him the hardest!"

AM: Speaking of hitting, what was your technique, most running backs were heavier. - Rohan: I wanted to knock you out pure and simple. I didn't want to hurt you, like hit your knees or anything. I WANTED TO HIT YOU IN THE MOUTH. I want to bend your facemask. My job is to get there and annihilate you. I don't want to ankle tackle you I wanted to hit you in the face. Oh, I enjoy when I hit you, my eyes would water up. I enjoyed that tingle you get. I use to feel like I could run through a car. I felt like I could go through anything. It's the power that's inside you." "Nobody can run sideways on Canes. If they try to run a toss and the fullback is leading the running back the first Linebacker has to spill the play back into the pursuit. I come up underneath take the fullback with my inside shoulder and force the running back deeper into the backfield. You spill the play to the belly, back into the middle linebacker, and 10 angry men!"

Rohan: "I'll tell you about one play from the CFL. My first game playing, the Quarterback scrambles I was on the weak side, he scrambles to the strong side. I drop into the curl, he started to break out of the backfield. So I'm running at 90 MPH, and I'm saying [to myself], I'm gonna kill him. In my mind I'm not gonna throw down, I'm gonna run right through him. I don't care I'm gonna finish him. Five yards before I got to the QB he steps out of bounds. Well it left me one-on-one a 6'7" 350 pound lineman, and you know what I had to do him...I HAD TO FINISH HIM. I said you know what I'm hitting somebody. I HIT HIM SO HARD I KNOCKED HIM OUT! I almost knocked myself out too. I didn't really get knocked out, but I was kind of disoriented. As I tried to get up off the ground, I had no coordination, I was like what's going on? I'm telling myself "Rohan, you better get up before his guy gets up." I'm fighting just to get up and then I look out of the corner of my eye and see the ref calling for the stretcher. The guy is out, he's sleeping. I knocked him out cold. I said I'm OK, shook it off, and I crawled over to the side and jogged off the field, saying to myself, “Job well done Rohan.”

Rohan: "Being a Hurricane is great, but now you gotta put the work in. You have to seek out Cortez Kennedy, Tiger Clark, Horace Copeland, George Mira Jr, Gino Torretta. These guys LOVE the Hurricanes. They instill that love in you. They don't play around on the field. I remember Shannon Crowell telling me, "Now listen, you're a Hurricane now, you get on the field and play with reckless abandon. RECKLESS ABANDON! You play with a complete disregard for your body".

More Rohan, Vintage 2007, on Canespace: As a linebacker at UM in the early 90's Rohan set the tone for the team when it came to sacrifice, Marleyeffort, tenacity and laying the lumber. When he was on the field you just knew the Canes were only one play away from the next big hit that would a change a game and put fear in the other team's offensive players. Don't believe me? Read it now, straight from the Legend himself, Rohan Marley... AM: So what drew you to playing for the Miami Hurricanes? - Rohan: I always knew I was going to be a Miami Hurricane. I wanted to play for the best team in the world. I grew up watching them play UF and FSU, it would get so intense watching them I'd jump through the ceiling after a big play. Robert Bailey and I use to hang out when I was in 11th grade, he'd pick me up Ummarylandand bring me by his apartment. I remember Russell Maryland [Bailey's roommate] pointing at this really big guy on the couch, telling me "That's the next great Defensive Tackle to come from UM. He was pointing at Cortez Kennedy."

Did someone say Rohan? This feature article, the third in our three part series, is based on an EXCLUSIVE Canespace interview with Rohan Marley... - AM: So how intense were those practices? - Rohan: "There's no friends in practice, this is serious. It's a war, it's war. You better hold your position because there's a guy underneath you that might be just as good, or might be a little better next year. You don't walk on Greentree Practice field, you run. There's no standing still. We run, we tackle, we hit, we sweat. These no quitting on Greentree practice field, there's no quitters out there. Lion's, all lion's on the Serengeti; we run like deer and hit like a freight trains."

Manny Diaz: "Our guys want to play downhill. We want to play on the other side of the line of scrimmage. When you've got guys like Gerald that are causing disruption amongst the offensive line, it's easy for the linebackers to find cracks in there to get TFLs." #ManCrush

Texas, FSU, Michigan, Florida, USC and Tennessee have all been recruiting well but dumpster fires on the field. Don't forget to add Notre Dame to that list. Every advantage, not much to show?

The second time I cried over a game was the 93 Sugar Bowl. I still have nightmares of George Teague running down Lamar Thomas. Posted by: TruCane81 | September 17, 2018 at 06:37 PM I cried too and I was in the stadium to see it with my wife. She hated me after the game because my behavior was inappropriate. I was sad beyond repair. Spent some flow to see it and that was the last time I cried over the Canes. I been hurt since, but never cried like that night. Now I see things very differently. My family and many friends like Terrance, KYCane, NativeCane, Old Skool, Kenny, Raize, Solar, UMike and many, many others know whats up and where I stand. Life is good, win or lose. We have done more than football and are wiser from it. Just another wake up is all I want. #GoCanes

WE HAVE TO BRING IT Posted by: CoCane | September 17, 2018 at 06:07 PM "WE" are only responsible for the tailgating and the cherring. "THEY" are responsible for the play and the score and the outcome. Once I learned to separate the two I became a much happier and healthier person. Oh, and much easier to live with also. IJS
