CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Cornerback Brandon McGee has spent the last two years watching, learning and putting things into his game. Now, he has to play his game.

He will keep learning, but there is no more watching. He knows it and has to step up because he will likely be starting at one corner when the season begins. With a group of young corners, McGee might be a junior in class, but he’s still a freshman in terms of on field experience so the start of the season, just a month away, is very exciting for him.

“I like a challenge so I been putting the work in all summer…all of us have so I think we’re just ready to step up to the plate and take care of business, and me, myself, I’m just ready. It’s everything I’ve been waiting for, the past two years just sitting back and learning so you know the year is here,” McGee said. “I am definitely ready for it, it’s a blessing at the same time and I am going to take full advantage of it.”

Many people thought that McGee would walk in his freshman year and be similar to Brandon Harris, pretty much take ownership of the corner spot opposite of Harris because they were similar in so many ways – both smart and athletic players, but there was one major difference. McGee wasn’t a legit corner. He played quarterback throughout high school along with safety. And for someone who has never played corner, it’s a tough adjustment, especially a young player.

He didn’t realize how much different it would be.

“It wasn’t that it was tough. It was definitely challenging, but I like a challenge and you know just having great teammates that brought me along even though I was brand new to the position and now I feel like I have that experience you know under my belt,” McGee said.

Much of his education at the position came from Harris and DeMarcus Van Dyke.

“Just watching them taking a little bit from their game, trying to improve my coverage skills, the way I watch film as well, Brandon Harris, he’s a smart football player as well as athletic, and DVD, I took bits and pieces from both of their games and tried to put it in mine,” McGee said. “It’s just overall, understanding the position, just about everything, understanding the offense, my man coverage, my zone coverage have improved overall.”

Now, it’s time to see if that education has paid off. Things have been different though since the arrival of Golden according to McGee. The players conditioning is better and it’s come hand in hand with Golden.

“Guys are a lot more strong, a lot more fast. One thing coach Golden did when he came into the program, he said it has to be different, you got coach Swasey, they created a plan for us to reach our goals and I definitely think guys are adapting to it,” McGee said. “Coach Swasey is still grinding us like he always would, but there’s a lot more tests. He works his workouts around those tests.”

One thing McGee does like about this Fall is the opportunity to stay in a hotel with his teammates. He appreciates the responsibility that Golden has put on the guys to get to and from practice.

“It’s cool being that your have your teammates right next door to you. It’s game day for us every morning just cause we compete at such a high level. We’re out there competing every day. The DBs, we compete every day. He’s definitely holding everyone accountable. You’re responsible to get here and we understand him doing it. I like it cause it makes us step up and have a sense of ownership and a sense of responsibility,” McGee said.

Ownership of his position we shall find out at Maryland.

News and notes from Day 4 of camp
by: Steve Gorten August 9th, 2011 | 3:37 PM CORAL GABLES – Hurricanes coach Al Golden said before the start of fall camp that he’d be closely watching place-kicking and punting in practice, and so far the competition for both as been “exciting.”
Golden said before Tuesday’s practice that newcomers Dalton Botts, a junior college transfer from California, and Matt Goudis, a true freshman also from Cali, are “truly in the mix right now.”
“We have to see more of Goudis yet,” he noted. “From what I’ve seen of Botts so far, he’s going to be a real factor in the competition.”
Botts is the Hurricanes’ only true punter on scholarship and will likely win the job.
“Everybody wants to be the starting guy and that’s my goal,” he said.
Goudis is battling junior Jake Wieclaw to be the place-kicker. Walk-ons Cameron Dean, Ben Hopfinger and Alex Irastorza are also competing for kicking duties. Chris Ivory and Sean McNally have been long-snapping.
Botts said that all of the kickers and punters have been asked to do both roles in practice. Golden said last week he would chart the snap times, hang times and accuracy on every kick/punt during a period each day.
“That’s big for me because I’ve never had someone chart my stuff for me,” said Botts, adding that hang-time is important to him and he wants it more than 4.5 seconds for his punts. “I’ve always had to do my own things. It’s actually really nice having someone chart your stuff for you, be able to watch your own film and critique yourself.
“That makes me focus a lot more than to just go out and mess around, like, ‘Oh, I’ll just kick a couple of balls.’ You have people out here that are watching you. So it makes you focus a lot more.”
Wieclaw, who patiently waited behind Matt Bosher the past three years, said he doesn’t feel pressure to win the kicking job now.
“Pressure comes from not being ready. We’ve all been working all summer,” Wieclaw said. “I knew the caliber of player Bosher was when I got here. I knew he was one of the best.”
Asked what advantage there was in having been here three years, he said, “It helps getting used to the speed. That’s one thing that takes a little bit to get used to.”
Here are some other notes:
— TE Blake Ayles left the field the first few minutes of practice, seeming to be sick or affected by the heat. He walked over and sat on a table in the shade.
— Sophomore Jimmy Gaines continues to lead senior Jordan Futch in the battle for the starting job at MLB.
“He absolutely can be a guy that starts,” Golden said. “He’s a self made guy. He’s a competitor. He’s tough. He’s really smart. He’s come back in great condition. He’s the starter right now. He’s going to have a lot to say about whether someone supplants him.”
— DB coach Paul Williams said he has shown highlights to his CBs of UM’s top three CBs from last season now in the NFL – Brandon Harris, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Ryan Hill. Williams said he’s also had each CB watch and analyze practice film of a fellow CB.
— Williams said JoJo Nicolas, Lee Chambers, Brandon McGee, Thomas Finnie and Michael Williams will all be in the playing rotation at CB.
— A.J. Highsmith and walk-on Andrew Swasey are the second-team safeties – Highsmith behind Ray-Ray Armstrong, and Swasey behind Vaughn Telemaque.
Williams said Highsmith is the most improved player since fall practice began Saturday. Golden said last week Highsmith was arguably the team’s most improved over the final five or six practices of spring.
— Art Kehoe’s second stint as UM’s o-line coach has started just as Golden hoped it would.
“I think they’re starting to take on his personality, which is what we want,” Golden said of the team’s offensive linemen. “We want them to be rugged, to be tough, to finish, to play with passion.
“Art’s kind of self-effacing. He’s affable. He’s a guy who doesn’t take himself too serious. But in the end, he is a competitior. He’s an incredible technician. He doesn’t get enough credit for that, in terms of how he coaches and what he teaches those guys. I’ve been very impressed, and obviously the offensive line is responding.”
— Kacy Rodgers has been moved from S to CB, Williams said, because “he runs well and he’s athletic.”
— Olivier Vernon was named to the Ted Hendricks Award Watch List on Tuesday. The award is given to the nation’s top DE and is named after the ‘Canes’ three-time All-American (1966-68), the only player in school history to have his number retired at UM and be inducted into both the Pro and College Football Hall of Fame.
Unlike watch lists for other awards, candidates for the Hendricks Award can be added until November, so Adewale Ojomo still has a chance.
— Former UM center Jim Otto was named to ACC’s 2011 Football Legends Class, which will be honored ACC Championship Game weekend. Otto, who played at UM from 1957-59, is the first ‘Canes player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Golden talks first scrimmage; QBs, Gaines, Streeter shine
The University of Miami had its first scrimmage of the fall Sunday afternoon. Here are some of the highlights according to an interview done by the sports' information staff with coach Al Golden:

> UM's offense committed only one turnover. Middle linebacker Jimmy Gaines made the interception. We still haven't heard who threw it.

"Jimmy’s doing a good job for us,” Golden said. “It’s going to be quite a competition inside there at linebacker. Gionni [Paul] and [Jordan] Futch will have something to say about it. We’ll see how it shakes out.”

> Golden said the first team players ran about 55 plays; second teamers between 45-50 plays and third teamers about 15 plays. "So we got a good look at everybody," Golden said.

> Golden called the quarterback play "excellent."

“I’d be interested to see where our [completion] percentage will be for the day, but I thought we did a good job,” he said. “We found our check-downs a couple of times and to me that’s very important. Lamar [Miller] made a big play, we hit the tight ends [with passes] underneath with Clive [Walford], Cory White -- and we got a couple explosive [plays] down the field as well.”

> Receiver Tommy Streeter had a touchdown catch. "It was a tough one. He went up where he was above the goal post there and snatched it. It didn’t look like he had a chance, to be quite honest with you, but he really got up high," Golden said. "The biggest thing with Tommy right now is he’s more mentally tough and he’s in really good shape. He’s learning how to play at a higher level and he’s catching tougher ones every day.”

> Golden said he was pleased with running backs Lamar Miller and Mike James. But he was "disappointed [the offense] didn’t execute as well as we need to in the short-yardage situations, both the ones we set for them and the ones that occurred naturally in the flow of the scrimmage.”

> Golden said he wasn't pleased with the tackling in the second half. "That might be a function of fatigue, but that’s inexcusable,” he said. “We’ve got to be better. I thought we were really good early on, to be honest with you. I thought we wrapped up well and pursued with force. And then we tailed off a little bit.”

> Golden will give players the day off on Monday. He's inviting the team back to his house tonight for a BBQ.

> The scrimmage was closed to the media and open only to recruits, family and special guests. UM said it will send out a complete press release on the scrimmage later today.

Earl Moore dt from Tampa. Trying to find some info.

|By Patrick Lammer, Sun Sentinel

Tampa Hillsborough senior defensive tackle Earl Moore, who holds scholarship offers from Florida, Florida State and Miami among others, verbally committed to the Hurricanes Sunday in Coral Gables.

"Yes he did commit to UM today," Moore's mother Cherrie Wilson-Moore said Sunday evening. "He and his dad attended the senior day event at UM. I am speaking with my husband right now. They are en route back home."


The 6-foot-2, 280-pound Moore is UM's 24th commitment in coach Al Golden's 2012 class. He chose UM over South Carolina.

The 'Canes have commitments from four defensive ends in the class, who range in weight from Vero Beach's Dwayne Hoilett's 214 pounds to St. Thomas Aquinas' Jelani Hamilton's 250 pounds, but Moore is the first defensive tackle in the crop.

Rivals.com ranks Moore a three-star prospect and the No. 71 player overall in the state of Florida.

everything i read surrounding the allegations

* supposedly shapiro making more allegations that was supposed to break today

* many are contesting that hes making all allegations to sell his book, which has not been picked up by a publisher, to make earnings to eventually pay off the money he owes

* failed to provide university of miami with actual proof or details of his said allegations, this is why the university deemed it necessary to get the ncaa involved, which makes it a joint investigation

* the most damaging allegded evidence is money he allegedly gave to vince wilfork, which is not that far fetched, if you remember vince wilfork lost both his parents at a young age while in miami, making it very difficult to endure while in college financially

* and also these are all the same allegations he made a year ago that first surfaced

so tfwiw
