Wow, I'm stunned by that scout article on Miami's(I refuse to call them the U, until they become somewhat prominent again) spring game. Did they really compare this years RBs to the stable of Clinton Portis, Willis McGahee and Frank Gore? And did they say that Armstrong is like Ed Reed AND Sean Taylor, lol!? I almost choked from laughing. That's some ridiculously high praise. Then I guess I guess our RBs are the greatest in the universe, and Saine is Eddie George and Archie Griffin rolled in one. And Rolle and and Homan must be the next coming of Katzenmoyer, AJ Hawk and Spielman, lol! I love how spring games can sometimes bring up unrealistic expectations
Game moved to monday night?
Any truth to the game to be moved from Sat to Monday night?
Still listed as 9/11 everywhere I can see...that's a Saturday.
im sure someone has asked this already but will latwan be able to play in this game?
Due to Parole issues, Miami may only be bringing 30 players. Mostly walkons
Miami Hurricanes likely to see only three go in NFL Draft, but wait 'til next year
Three draftees (in 2010) is hardly worth bragging about for a football program that has produced more draft choices (66) since 1999 than every college in the nation except for Ohio State (77) and Southern Cal (67).
But it's not all doom and gloom. The good news is that the Hurricanes' draft drought could be coming to an end soon, thanks to a roster loaded with talented juniors and seniors. Four UM players are ranked among the top 5 at their positions for next season by ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper.
That list includes senior Allen Bailey, who Kiper rates as the No. 1 defensive end in college football heading into the 2010 season. Also on the list are receiver Leonard Hankerson (No. 3), outside linebacker Colin McCarthy (No. 4) and Orlando Franklin, ranked as the No. 5 guard although he will play left offensive tackle for the Hurricanes next season.
"The next two or three years here, you're going to see a big change," UM coach Randy Shannon said of the team's talent.

who cares about wins and losses or other team based accomplishments, DA U is all about getting drafted!
That seems like an extremely generous ranking for Hankerson. Even with those four, I'll take our quartet:
Posey vs Hankerson
Boren vs Franklin
Heyward vs Bailey
Homan vs McCarthy
I honestly have never seen a fan base with such lofty praise for their team when the results on the field have been so extremely mediocre.
I mean, if you read their board you would think that the '10 version of the Canes was being led by Vinny Testaverde and Jerome Brown.
This is a mediocre team at best. I hate to say that given that it only helps our strength of schedule if they are good, but I just don't see it.
There are at least 3 other games I'm more worried about this season.
Am I missing something?
Miami has equal talent to ours at the DE position, so our offensive tackles are going to have their hands full.
But Miami's LBers are still looking for Wiscy's TE over the middle. :tongue2:
And Tress utilizes the tight end in the passing game so very much...
Seriously, you need to get somebody to talk to Tress and not take the foot off the pedal in the 4th quarter. Having Wandy storm out without a post-game handshake and bitch about RUTS is worth it.
NW took some cheap shots on OSU half a decade ago, and ever since NW has been the very rare recipient of a beatdown ever since. Not Carroll/Spurrier-esque, but enough 4th quarter attacks to send a message. He'll even call multiple 4th down conversion attempts. This is the coach who is known to punt on 4th & 1 at the opponents 33 when he doesn't have a strong kicker.
I wouldn't put it past Tress to send a resounding message after all of the griping over the title game, especially with how many recruiting battles OSU fights in S FLA.
Then again, there's a case to be made that ISO , ISO , pass... repeat... is even more demoralizing
