wonder why they putting bryce brown as a "soft verbal". I don't think that kid has even visited any other schools besides Miami and then he attended a camp at Mizzou but that's about it.

The guy i'm a little scared of decommiting at the last moment is Oliver Vernon. Fortunately getting him would be a luxury since we are loaded at DE.

I just heard that a coupel of days ago as a matter of fact. He's probably reallizing that everyone is favoring Jacory over him, maybe even the coaching staff at this moment and he doesn't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Would i be worried if he left? well that goes both ways cuz Jacory is better than him and this offense seems to fit him more.. plus it doesn't seem that Nix is gonna leave anytime soon. however, that leaves us a whole in the QB position since neither Cannon, nor the other freshman QBs are not as good as Marve is.

Well we all know what happens to every QB that transfers out of Miami... Too bad for him if he does really leave.

University of Miami's Sean Spence ACC Defensive Rookie of Year


[pic - click to view]



Capping an already impressive season, University of Miami true freshman linebacker Sean Spence was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Rookie of the Year on Tuesday.

Spence, who played for Miami Northwestern High School last season, received 39 votes of 67 ballots cast by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media a.ssociation.

Spence, a weak-side linebacker, started the last eight of 12 games he played and is third on the team in tackles with 62 -- 36 of them solo. With the bowl game remaining in the 2008 season, Spence has two sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss, an interception, two pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Finishing second was linebacker Brandon Maye of Clemson, with 11 votes. Eight other ACC players received at least one vote, with lineman Robert Quinn of North Carolina garnering 8.

Also honored by the ACSMA on Tuesday was Offensive Rookie of the Year Russell Wilson, the North Carolina State quarterback who was named ACC Rookie of the Year as well. Wilson, who received 62 votes, dominated the Hurricanes last Saturday with his running and passing skills.

Spence received one vote for Rookie of the Year.

And finally, ACC Coach of the Year honors went to Paul Johnson of Georgia Tech (46), who beat out Jeff Jagodzinski of Boston College (12); David Cutcliffe of Duke (4); Frank Beamer of Virginia Tech (2); Butch Davis of North Carolina (2); and Tom O'Brien of N.C. State.
shout out to sean "cobra" spence, here's to tearin it up again next year:applause:

Read that someone on rivals confirmed we're getting two 'playmakers' at WR. With Debose I think out of the equation that would leave Randle and someone else. If this is true, then it seems with Randy out there recruiting telling players about Nix being out is changing their mind about Miami. Hope this is true.

More info:

Dedicated poster on Rivals spoke with #15 at the Deerfield sideline. Confirmed kid is transfering to a team in this weeks conference championship game. I suspect Alabama. My question, does Marve follow? He originally committed to Alabama.

Also, Rivals was on total meltdown tonight. Ferman ferminated about 20 posts tonight. All dealt with inside info being posted which he immediately deleted. The following was posted, allmost all by old reliable posters:

1) We got the two WR we have been targeting. DMitch, RR's brother made a one time appearance and gave the puff, puff, sign, confirming the initial post.

2) We got rid of Nix

3) Gus M will be interviewed

As I said, all was by reliable oldtimers and got immediately got ferminated.

Why do they have this as an ACC/Pac10 game? Make an ACC team travel to Cali. Don't understand that.

BUT should be interesting.

Don't know much about Cal outside of Jahvid Best.

Hopefully Nix is gone.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The University of Miami has officially accepted an invitation to participate in the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco on December 27.

Miami (7-5) will play the California Golden Bears (8-4), who finished fourth in the Pac-10 Conference, on ESPN at 8 p.m. Eastern. The last time Miami faced a Pac-10 opponent was in 2001 when the Hurricanes defeated Washington 65-7.

"This is a great opportunity for us to be selected and invited to the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco," Miami coach Randy Shannon said. "We are playing a great Pac-10 opponent in Cal-Berkley. It's an opportunity for the University of Miami to travel out west to be recognized out west because we do a lot of recruiting in California."

BONUS: First Look at Cal

Cal's campus is less than 20 miles away from At&T Park, also home of the San Francisco Giants.

"If I'm not mistaken, the alumni base for the University of Miami in California is kind of big," Shannon said. "In my years of being a coach with Coach Erickson playing San Diego State, we always had a crowd there to support the University of Miami. That's all we need when you go on the road. It's on the road, but I think we'll have a lot of support from fans in that area."

UM's last bowl appearance was in 2006 at the Micron PC Computers Bowl in Boise as the Hurricanes defeated Nevada in that game 21-20.

"It's a bowl, some of these young guys on this football team will have their first experience to understand why it is so important to win games at the University of Miami," Shannon said.

Shannon says he has not watched much of Cal yet, but is familiar with Cal head coach Jeff Tedford as the two share a mutual friend.

"When you watch them on TV, Coach Tedford does a great job of getting his program to play at a higher standard and we are going out there to play against a team that it is a great opportunity for us to see where we are at coming off of two losses," Shannon said.

Shannon has ties with Cal offensive line coach Jim Michalczik, who was a graduate a.ssistant at Miami the same time Shannon was a graduate a.ssistant.

Miami players Patrick Hill (Los Angeles), Josh Holmes (San Diego), and Vaughn Telemaque (Long Beach) hail from the state of California. Cal does not have any players from Florida, but wide receiver Nyan Boateng is a transfer from Florida.

The team will have this week off and resume practice on Saturday afternoon. They will also practice on Sunday before having time off for finals. They are scheduled to arrive in San Francisco on Dec. 22.

It's finally official. The University Miami will play the California Golden Bears in the Emerald Bowl on December 27 at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

The only bowl game pairing teams from the Pacific-10 vs the ACC, the Emerald Bowl will once again be televised nationally by ESPN. Kickoff is 8:00 p.m. [EST] and it will be the only game played the evening of the 27th.

Cal finished the year 8-4 while beating just one Pac 10 team with a winning record--Oregon.

Read here to learn more about Miami's bowl opponent as we take a first look at Cal.

************************************************** *****

What Cal Does Well

When Cal wins, their defensive line applies pressure on the quarterback and allows the secondary to make plays on the ball. In Cal's eight wins this season, they have forced an average of three interceptions per game. The Golden Bears rank third in the country with 23 interceptions this season. Cal ranks in the top 20 nationally with 33 sacks on the year and force opposing quarterbacks into questionable decisions. Cal runs a 3-4 defense and linebacker Zack Follett appears to be the major playmaker on the unit. Follett finished the year with 78 tackles, with a team leading 8.5 sacks and 19 tackles for loss.

On offense Cal is led by running back Jhavid Best, who ran for 1,394 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging eight yards per carry. Cal runs a two quarterback system that appears to have been pretty productive this season. Quarterbacks Kevin Riley and Nate Longshore have both played in 11 of the games this year and combined to throw for 2,290 yards and 23 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.

Why Cal Loses

Cal loses when they can't establish any running game with Best and they become a one-dimensional passing offense. In their four losses this year, Best averages 69 yards per game. In those games the Cal quarterbacks average 43 pass attempts and complete just 49-percent of the passes for an average of 255 yards in those games. The key to keeping Cal off the boards is stopping Best and forcing the Golden Bears to beat you with their passing game.

Player to Watch

Cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson. This guy is sparkplug of the Cal defense, leading the Golden Bears with four interceptions and he isn't afraid tom come up and make a tackle, ranking fourth on the team in tackles (65). He also broke up 12 passes this season. Thompson is a very aggressive corner and Miami will have to be aware of him wherever he lines up on the field. Thompson also serves as Cal's punt returner, averaging 12 yards per return and he has scored on a 73-yard return.

Stat of the Game

Cal's defense averages just under three interceptions a game in their wins this year, but in their four losses the defense has totaled just two interceptions total.

Key Matchup

Miami offensive line vs. Cal front seven. UM will need to get their running game going in order to beat Cal. Graig Cooper is Miami's last 100-yard rusher when he ran the ball 24 times for 131 yards in the win over Virginia. During Cal's four losses this season, opposing running backs have combined to average 168 yards and two touchdowns in those games. In the last three games Cooper and Javarris James have combined to average just 89 yards per game. Miami will need better production in the running game against Cal.

What the Game Comes Down to

The formula that Miami will need to use in order to beat Cal is the formula they have used to beat teams all year--control the ball on offense with few turnovers and establish a running game. Defensively UM needs to contain Cal running back Jahvid Best from having a big game. The biggest key to the game is the UM quarterbacks must do a better job of controlling the ball. In the past two games, Miami quarterbacks Jacory Harris and Robert Marve have combined to throw six interceptions.

There has been a lot of talk in recent days about the status of Miami's starting quarterback.

And no, it's not about who should start or if the rotation works.

This time, the topic revolves around Robert Marve.

Marve, who has thrown for 1,293 yards and nine touchdowns as the starter this season, has been involved in two rumors including being suspended for the Emerald Bowl and also transferring.

Multiple people who have talked to Marve informed InsideTheU.com Monday night that Marve had not been told he would be suspended.

Rumors of Marve transferring to LSU have popped up over the past few weeks. South Florida is another school that has surfaced.

Again, Marve has denied those rumors according to multiple people who have talked to Marve.

While the rumors are being squashed at the moment, that does not mean the situation should be treated as a closed book.

Last year, rumors were floating around about quarterback Kirby Freeman's status. Shortly after the end of the season, Freeman told InsideTheU.com: "The rumors are not true. I will be back next year."

A month later, Freeman transferred to Baylor.

If Marve is on his way out, Jacory Harris would be the team's quarterback. The two have rotated throughout the season as each have traded ACC Player of the Week honors and each have finished games while the other is forced to set on the sideline and watch.

Marve beat out Harris for the job in late August and found out on the same day, that he would be suspended for the season opener for an incident that occurred 10 months ago. The coaches waited to tell Marve of the suspension in fear that he wouldn't compete as hard for the starting job.

Marve's first game as a Hurricane was at Florida as he threw for 69 yards in a 26-3 defeat. He bounced back to throw for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Texas A&M, also on the road. His 212 yards remain as a season-high.

The next three games, Marve threw seven interceptions as Harris received minimal reps, but questions of Marve's abilities began to be a popular conversation.

Harris finally shined against Duke after the team was in a 17-7 hole just before halftime. Harris responded by throwing for 185 yards and four touchdowns.

Since then, the two have traded the better performance although neither were effective in their last game against N.C. State as each threw two picks as Miami finished the regular season with a 7-5 record.

Harris' stats are more impressive as he's thrown for 1,001 yards and 10 touchdowns while completing 61 percent of his passes with six interceptions.

Whereas Marve has completed 54 percent of his passes for 1,293 yards and nine touchdowns with 13 interceptions. Only Virginia's Marc Verica has thrown more interceptions, 16, in the ACC than Marve.

If Marve is not suspended and does not leave Miami, he'll need a strong performance in the bowl game to keep Harris from closing the gap. If he doesn't play well, he could find himself on the outside looking in.

Either way, the next three weeks are sure to be interesting.

This Sunday the University of Miami hosts its annual awards banquet at the Westin Colonnade in Coral Gables.

There are a number of awards on the list up for grabs, but the one that I am sure everyone is interested in is Team MVP. Last year, Darnell Jenkins took home the honor following a very disappointing season for the Hurricanes.

Well, things are looking up this year. The 'Canes finished 7-5, have a win over ACC Champion Virginia Tech and are heading to the Emerald Bowl to face off with California on December 27 at 8:00 p.m.

A win and there won't be many who can complain about an 8-5 season and a bowl victory following last season's misery.

However, who is the MVP of this year's team? It definitely isn't an easy selection as a number of players played well, but no one blew your socks off. We break down the candidates, or expected candidates:

OLB Sean Spence - Yes, he's only a freshman, but Spence made an impact like no other player on this team. His ability to make big plays such as his strip against Virginia and his interception for touchdown against Florida State just begins to scratch the surface as to what Spence has the potential to become. He started for a good part of the season following an injury to Colin McCarthy and it is likely Spence will start at UM for the rest of his career. He finished the regular season third on the team in tackles with 62, had 7 for loss and two sacks.

K Matt Bosher - How often do you call a placekicker the Team MVP? Well, when he's 17 of 19 kicking field goals and averages 41.1 yards per punt while also being a maniacal tackler on kicks, that's a good time to do it. Not to mention, Bosher has been more than integral in numerous wins, including Virginia Tech, Central Florida and Wake Forest. He probably won't win the award, but Bosher has been as important to this team as any player on it.

RB Graig Cooper - Cooper rushed for 778 yards this season on 159 carries and four touchdowns. He also caught 24 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown. He had his ups and his downs and continues to struggle when it comes to breaking tackles, but offensively, he may have been the 'Canes most consistent player this season.

MLB Glenn Cook - The sixth year senior is looked to as a leader on the team and a coach on the field. Spence looks up to him and says he's learned a lot from Cook this year. That alone speaks volumes of the respect his teammates have for him. He leads the team in tackles with 72 tackles and 7 for loss, but it's the leadership he brings which makes him a candidate for this award.

Who should win Team MVP: I think Matt Bosher deserves to win the award. People may have been driven mad at times with his punting, sometimes inconsistent, but without Bosher's field goal kicking this year, the 'Canes don't win very much this season. He stepped up in a huge way for the team as he improved incredibly from year one to year two. Bosher is going to be a mainstay on this team for two more years which should be very exciting because the 'Canes won't have to worry about their field goal kicking for quite some time with Bosher handling the duties.

Who will win Team MVP: I believe Glenn Cook will win the award simply based on leadership and the fact that he is highly respected on this team. It doesn't necessarily mean he deserves to win the award, even though he did have a solid season, over Bosher or even Sean Spence who would be my second pick, but respect goes a long way for MVP awards.

There are a host of other awards that will be awarded Sunday including Rookie of the Year which should definitely go to Spence and the Special Teams Award which should also go to Bosher with an Honorable Mention to Sam Shields.
