"The top executive for the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome said he would like to match Miami with Alabama (or if that doesn't happen, Auburn, Georgia or South Carolina) in 2012, with each participant getting $2.25 million. 'It's something we would be interested in,' UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt said." ~ Barry Jackson, Miami Herald

Expectations running high for Hurricanes’ Allen Baileyby Jorge Milian
No UM player will carry greater expectations into the 2010 season that defensive end Allen Bailey.

According to ESPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com, the hulking UM pass rusher will be one of the nation’s top players next season.
Allen Bailey led UM last season with 7 sacks. (Miami Herald)


ESPN.com’s Todd McShay projects Bailey as the 30th pick of the first round in 2011 NFL Draft. [One, though, has to wonder how familiar McShay is with Bailey considering that in his a.ssessment, the draft analyst writes that Bailey is a “former end” who is going into “his second full season at defensive tackle.” Actually, Bailey is a former defensive tackle going into his first full season at defensive end.]
SI.com’s Andrew Perloff has Bailey as the 29th-best prospect in next year’s draft while CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco is the most bullish on Bailey, rating him as the 10th-best NFL prospect.
If the above three projections are correct, Bailey would become the Hurricanes’ first No. 1 draft pick since Kenny Phillips in the 2008 NFL Draft.
Nobody doubts Bailey has the physical gifts to be one of college football’s top players. Bailey is listed as 6-foot-4 and 288 pounds with seemingly not an ounce of fat on his body. Ask any UM player or coach to name the team’s most gifted athlete and Bailey wins hands down. He power cleans 400 pounds, squats 570 pounds and bench presses 405. Last summer, Bailey vertical jumped 39 inches and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 seconds.
But now, Bailey has to combine those enormous physical gifts with commensurate production.
Yes, Bailey has led the Hurricanes in sacks each of the past two seasons, but his combined two-year total of 12 hardly evokes visions of Jared Allen and Dwight Freeney.
Last season, Bailey piled up seven sacks in his first eight games, but was shut out over the Hurricanes’ final five games. Bailey did bounce between defensive tackle and end last season, but he played the final five games on the outside, which is the position he prefers.
A healthy Bailey who remains at defensive end all season should easily generate 10-12 sacks. UM hasn’t had a defensive end pile up double digits in sacks since Calais Campbell had 10.5 in 2006.
If Bailey can live up to expectations, UM could find itself in the ACC and national championship races. And Bailey could find himself getting picked in the first round by an NFL team next April.

The 2011 recruiting battle is heating up, and Miami Northwestern senior-to-be quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has emerged as UM's No. 1 priority, recruiting analyst Larry Blustein and others say.

Bridgewater, considered Florida's top quarterback and perhaps the nation's best dual-purpose one, could give UM an elite prospect to succeed Jacory Harris in 2012.

UM likes Stephen Morris and A.J. Highsmith, but Bridgewater is a far better prospect. ``He's more athletic than Jacory,'' Blustein said. ``He does things so effortlessly.'' Analyst Tom Lemming said Bridgewater ``could be special. He's one of the best quarterbacks in the country, as good or better than Jacory was coming out.''

Bridgewater, whose numerous offers include UM, UF, Alabama and LSU, said he will consider Miami -- ``they've been calling me a lot'' -- but has no front-runner. He has called the idea of succeeding Harris appealing, but said the large Northwestern presence on the UM team won't influence him.

He said key factors include academics and graduation rates and ``what schools are putting guys in the NFL.'' Top Northwestern receiver Eli Rogers said he and Bridgewater want to go to the same school and that Miami is a strong contender. UM might sign two quarterbacks and also is pursuing Arkansas-based Kiehl Frazier, whose top five includes UM and UF.

Among other local players UM has offered: defensive backs Jabari Gorman (Pace), Wayne Lyons (Dillard); defensive ends B.J. DuBose (Northeast), Anthony Rabasa (Columbus) and Johnathan Harris (Boynton Beach); receivers Rashad Greene and Phillip Dorsett (St. Thomas Aquinas); and Dwyer (Palm Beach Gardens) tight end Nick O'Leary (Jack Nicklaus' grandson). Most players aren't close to deciding.

Coach Randy Shannon said UM will add 15 players or fewer, with receiver among priorities. Miami has two oral commitments: Vero Beach offensive lineman Marcus Jackson and Boston-area cornerback Albert Louis-Jean.

a.ssessing UM off the air, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit said, ``Legitimate maturity is missing. They want you to think they have swagger, but they show a lack of maturity. They need to show toughness and grit.'' But he's hopeful: ``This is a young team that will grow up in 2010.'' He added, ``Everyone is wondering if Randy is the right guy. How can you not question it at this point based on the numbers? Long-term, I believe he will prove he is.''

Though Marcus Forston will start August practice on the third team, UM expects he will challenge spring sensation Micanor Regis, Curtis Porter and Josh Holmes for two starting defensive tackle jobs. Roommate Sean Spence tells us Forston, who redshirted with injures in '09, ``is real driven and can't wait to get back on the field. He talks about what he needs to do to be dominating. We talk all the time about it.''

UM is eager to see the damage Lamar Miller will do on kickoff returns. Anytime he has the ball, ``no one behind me will catch me,'' he said. ``It won't happen. Once I get ahead of someone, it will be a touchdown. I'm second fastest on the team, behind Travis Benjamin.''
bridge and eli will end up staying at tha crib

watching lamar on kick returns will be fun:dancingcool:

Randy Shannon Gets 4 Year Extension

Miami (Fla.) football coach Randy Shannon has signed a new four-year contract that goes into effect this coming season.

"This is an important contract for us," President Donna Shalala told USA TODAY Wednesday night. "We believe that Randy Shannon will get us back to where we belong, competing for a national championship year after year."

The Hurricanes, who went 9-4 in 2009, last won the national title in 2001.

Shannon, 44, took over in 2007 and has led Miami to two bowls. Last fall, the Hurricanes defeated three top-25 teams and played in the Champs Sports Bowl.

"We are very proud of the positive steps our football program has taken under the leadership of Coach Shannon," Miami athletics director Kirby Hocutt said in a news release. "With a commitment to excellence in the classroom, in the community, and in competition, we are well on our way, once again, to the top of the college football world."


Salary numbers were not released.

"There's no other place I'd rather be than coaching Hurricanes football," Shannon said in the release. "I'm excited about the momentum we continue to build."

Miami's team also has been recognized for a strong performance in the NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR), which combines graduation and retention numbers. Under Shannon, the team has been in the top 10% of major college programs.
"Randy has done it all," said Shalala.

I think Shannon is doing the right thing and def. brought the program back to prominence. Kinda wish we wouldve waited til after the year and see if he can handle expectations and if he improved his in game coaching and some of his depth chart moves before extending him

Not tryna see TE's return kicks or any of those conservative a.ss gameplans

Early Thoughts on Ohio State Game
May. 12, 2010

By: Rudy Rodriguez-Chomat





Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor (Photo Courtesy: Ohio State sports media relations)
The University of Miami will know quickly. Just like in 2009, the Hurricanes will find out about themselves and the kind of team they can be when they travel to the Horseshoe to face Ohio State on September 11, 2010.

But unlike last year when the ‘Canes played Oklahoma at home in the season’s fourth game against a depleted version of the Sooners, Ohio State will likely be in full force and the game will be on the road in one of the toughest places to play.

A challenge this will be, unlike any challenge this team has seen since Randy Shannon became head coach at the University of Miami. The challenge won’t just be on the field, but against one of the best coaching staffs in the country at Ohio State. It will be a chess match between the coaches.

Sure, the ‘Canes have had some tough games since Shannon took over, and the thought of playing Oklahoma was a scary thought, but they weren’t at full strength and had already lost a game by the time they made it down to Miami. And the difference this year is that the expectations are tremendously high. No more excuses can be made about the team being young. Shannon’s guys are juniors. Shannon’s guys have experience. Shannon’s guys have gotten plenty of opportunity to play going into 2010.

That’s the difference. That’s what makes this game so important to the success of 2010. A full strength Ohio State will be a mighty test, better than any Virginia Tech team Miami has seen in the past three years, better than the Florida team Miami visited when the ‘Canes went to Gainesville with a boatload of freshmen with zero expectations.

And it’s because of one player – quarterback Terrelle Pryor, the one-man show of the Buckeyes who threw for 2,094 yards and 18 touchdowns and also used his legs to rush for 779 yards and seven touchdowns.

Coming off of a Rose Bowl win over Oregon and an 11-2 season that saw them finish fifth in the nation, the Buckeyes are expected to be ranked among the top five teams in the nation and will be for good reason. Not only do they return one of the nation’s best quarterbacks, but they bring back their top running back (Brandon Saine) as well as their top two wide receivers from last season, DeVier Posey who went for 60 catches for 828 yards and eight touchdowns and Dane Sanzenbacher who caught 36 passes for 570 yards and six touchdowns.

This doesn’t include the defense that returns three of their top four tacklers and their top pass rusher. Linebackers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle were one and two in tackles last year and defensive back Jermale Hines was fourth. Cameron Heyward led the team with 6.5 sacks last season and he returns as well.

And then, of course, there’s the battle of playing in the Horseshoe. Sure, the ‘Canes have played on the road in hostile environments over the past three years, including two wins at Florida State two of the past three seasons, but the Horseshoe is the unknown. The place will be buzzing. The environment will be insane as it will be the first meeting since the ‘Canes were robbed in the Rose Bowl by a blind referee who decided to make an absurd pass interference call seconds after UM players were celebrating. Yes, I am still bitter nearly a decade later as I know are most ‘Canes fans about that call.

While many of the current players were barely in high school the last time these two teams met, you can be a.ssured that the phones will be ringing that week at UM with phone calls coming from members of the 2002 team that was a call away from a second straight National Championship.

Do the Hurricanes have the muscle to compete in this game? Without question, the ability is there, but the last Big Ten team Miami played (Wisconsin) pounded the ‘Canes up the gut the entire game and came away with a win. One can expect much of the same from the Buckeyes. They’ll try to gash the ‘Canes up the middle and send loads of pressure on defense.

How the ‘Canes will attack Ohio State remains to be seen. Will Jacory Harris try to attack the Buckeyes secondary? Will there be a mixture of run and pass? Will it be the Damien Berry show? No matter how the ‘Canes try to attack Ohio State, it’s going to start with the offensive line and if the ‘Canes line can get push up front.

If that happens, the chances of win increase exponentially. If not, winning becomes bleak.

It’s only four months away to the day.

UM should be nastier up front (on defense at least)
UM coach Randy Shannon told reporters he wanted his team to "get tougher" this spring. So, now that the Canes are done with the spring, is UM a nastier football team in the trenches?

There won't be any real way to tell until the season gets going. But strength and conditioning coach Andrew Swasey believes on size, strength and athleticism alone "we have to be." I caught up with Swasey Friday after UM's final practice of the spring and he had nothing but praise for the growth he's seen from the Canes' big boys in the weight room and on the field. He even went as far as to say the defensive line has as much talent -- if not more -- than the 2002 team that lost to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl and boasted three first round picks, a third, a fourth and a fifth.

"I look at this crew and compare it to when Jerome McDougle, Andrew Williams, Vince Wilfork, [Matt] Walters, Jamaal [Green] and that crew was here," Swasey said. "That team was two-deep solid. This one might be three or four deep at end. Honestly, we've never had this many numbers."

Swasey said he is encouraged by the size and physicality of two players in particular at defensive tackle: junior Micanor Regis (6-3, 300) and sophomore Curtis Porter (6-1, 315). Both, he said, have elevated their play and development to a level the program hasn't had in some time. Swasey said he expects Marcus Forston, a 2008 five-star recruit coming back from a shoulder injury, to eventually blossom to that point as well. "When you go with Porter, Regis, Forston, you're sitting really stacked. I mean, it's a wrap guy," Swasey said. "What they are is tough. They're hard working kids. You can see the development, the maturity kicking in. You've created great depth."

UM produced only 24 sacks last season -- 19 from the defensive line. Former UM a.ssistant Don Soldiger, who was at last week's final spring practice, said there is no way the program can't increase that number significantly with veteran Rick Petri now coaching a much more experienced defensive line. "He's going to take it to an entirely different level," Soldinger said. "He's a tremendous hire for Randy."

Said Swasey: "You look at end now, who hasn't played there? They aren't babies anymore. Olivier [Vernon] is coming back with a year in. [Allen] Bailey, [Adewale] Ojomo, [Steven] Wesley all have old head experience. Andrew Smith has a had a great spring. Marcus Robinson too. When you have a guy like [Dyron] Dye backing up, I mean come on man."

The Canes' offensive line, however, still has a lot more to prove before receiving high praise. Still, after surrendering seven sacks in the first spring scrimmage, progress was obviously made Saturday when the defense was only able to produce three sacks. With Orlando Franklin, Joel Figueroa, Harland Gunn and Brandon Washington the only returning players with real game experience, it was imperative for young guys on the offensive line to grow up or take at least a few paces forward this spring. Some clearly did; others are still working on it.

Offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland said the player he was most happy with this spring was center Tyler Horn, who probably solidified his spot entering the fall as the team's starting center. Swasey said it was good for redshirt sophomore Ben Jones and redshirt freshmen Jermaine Johnson to get a lot of snaps at tackle with Franklin out this spring. But of the many young players UM could end up having to depend on should injuries occur, Swasey was only confident telling me Johnson, Jones and true freshman Malcolm Bunche are probably physically ready enough to win battles in the trenches. But even Bunche, Swasey said, probably needs another year of development.

A FEW MORE TIDBITS...

> Sophomore cornerback Brandon McGee had a few mental lapses in coverage Saturday and got beat for big plays a couple times by the Canes' talented receivers. McGee's physical gifts certainly aren't to blame. Not only is he one of the fastest players on the team (he ran a 4.31 as a freshman), but at 5-11, 185-pounds he's strong enough in the eyes of Swasey to win most physical battles.

"He's probably one of the most prettiest looking dudes out there," Swasey said. "There's just nothing like game experience."

McGee probably could have benefitted from a redshirt season as a true freshman. But considering UM was so thin at corner, he was asked to play. McGee is a talented player and it's just a matter of time before he takes the next step.

> Fifth-year senior Kylan Robinson made big strides to earn the top spot at middle linebacker coming out of the spring. But whether or not he keeps a starting job when juniors Jordan Futch and Ramon Buchanon return in the fall remains to be seen. "I think he has a good chance," said junior Sean Spence. "He's made big improvements in terms of mentally, physically. He's taking charge on the defense."

Asked to compare Robinson to a few of UM's previous middle linebackers, Swasey said Robinson (6-1, 235) is "stronger than former middle linebacker Glenn Cook," but "not as fast as Darryl Sharpton."

"He's very instinctive, athletic and knows where he has to be," Swasey said. "I'm excited for him. He can play."
