2014 Canes
 
Well I'm bored and it's the offseason so lets discuss the Miami Hurricanes. :)

Predictions for next season. 8-4, losses to Oklahoma, TAMU, and 2 of 3 with FSU, VT and BC. That's if our QB can play decently. If they are bad 5 or 6 losses is a possibility. If the QB plays above decent I think 2 losses and a ACC championship is very realistic.

The freshmen that I think will make an impact are Graig Cooper, Doug Wiggins, DVD and one of the WRs, either Hankerson or the JUCO transfer. I really can't wait to see Cooper in action. All the Hester talk is getting me excited.

I think that if Javarris James has a huge game in week 1 that the Canes could shock the Sooners.

prediction

0-12

TigerBait45 06-04-2007 11:29 PM

8-4 seems pretty good. That defense will carry the team just like last year.

If the QB plays even ok they could be really good, but we'll see.

They have 18 returning starters, no way they will have another bad season 8-4 at worst. The qbs are awful but they will have an amazing ground game and a nasty defense

Don't need no damn QB with J. James there. He's good enough for 6-7 wins

Jelephant87 06-05-2007 10:08 AM

I don't think the QB play can be worse than last year to tell you the truth. The defense will be just as good, the ground game will be better, the receiving corps will be better in my opinion as well. I say they go 9-3.

How much of a chance are you guys giving them against Oklahoma?

-black 06-05-2007 11:38 AM

I honestly think Miami will beat Oklahoma

devinhester=R.O.Y 2006 06-05-2007 12:11 PM

They should be able to get by with the running game. James and Cooper will be very good this year. The defense will be stacked as always, but QB play will be the downfall. I think Robert Marve will start atleast once this year.

I say they finish top 4 in the ACC.

draftguru151 06-05-2007 12:22 PM

I think if the starting QB can play mistake free football and play decently we can win, but if Wright gets sacked 6 times and throws 2 ints we have no chance. That's one thing I like about Freeman over Wright is that he didn't hold on to the ball to long and could run if need be, even though the OL was somewhat bad Wright held onto the ball way too long last year and tried to run too much.

I don't think our ground game is that dominant that it can overcome the passing game. We have 2 guys that can be great backs but the OL looked very average in the spring game. It was a mixed unit with injuries though. It can be a good unit but it still worries me.

WarOnTheShore 06-05-2007 12:54 PM

8-4 sounds about right, but their schedule is pretty rough. I don't think they'll beat Oklahoma, but that Texas A&M game should be really entertaining.

djp 06-05-2007 01:19 PM

They'll go as far as Nix and Wright can take them... all signs have pointed to improvement but I can't see them going 12-0 or 11-1 or anything. I would probably guess 10-2 or more realistically, 9-3. This team is VERY, very talented.

RonnieRun23 06-05-2007 03:09 PM

i'm gonna agree with 10-2, 9-3. I think our offensive line is gonna be much better than it was last year. Jason Fox, hopefully, will continue to be beastly, and Youngblood should finally live up to his billing. We finally got rid of that bum Wollschlager, so i think we should be much better.

I'm not sure where i stand on the kyle wright v. kirby freeman debate. From all signs, Robert Marve has been excellent, and he's really grasping the playbook well and he's shown to be a weight room freak. I want to see him start next year though, because i just don't want to have to go through the growing pains with him this year. I would like to see Kyle Wright win the starting job, i guess, that way there won't be a controversy between Marve and Freeman next year if Kirby wins. If Wright wins though, i want to see Marve as the #2, that way he can actually get some meaningful playing time. BTW, the guy from sunshinepreps has said that Marve is the best prospect from Florida that he's seen since he's been scouting. :O VERY high praise.

On players coming in that i think can have an impact, definitely Cooper and Farquharson. Our lack of depth should mean that farq should get some minutes. I'd like to see Leggett and Shields starting, Jenkins playing the slot, and have Jones and Farq spell them. I really want to see LL take the next step, and actually catch the ball this year, and not get scared of the hit.

I don't think DVD and Wiggins are going to get much playing time this year at corner, but i think they're going to make their mark on special teams, especially DVD.

Who do you guys want from high school? I gotta say my favorite prospect is Aldarius Johnson. He's the best wide reciever prospect from SoFla in a while. Forston seems like a lock, he's a beast. Pretty much all of Northwestern are beasts. And how 'bout PJ? This kid reminds me of Chris McAlister, he has amazing technique and size for his age. Brandon Harris is another good one. Corey Liuget is great. Etienne Sabino. Really a great year for recruiting.

On defense, Campbell and Phillips are going to be the leaders. McCarthy has been playing LIGHTS OUT. I really want to see him starting in the middle this year. T-Good is solid. And he's a decent rapper too http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/for...ons/icon12.gif
Wink . Eric Moncur is someone who is going to have to step up to take some pressure off of CC. Dixon needs to take up blockers, and TMAC needs to play like he did in the spring game.

I'm very excited for college football this upcoming season. We have a couple of big-time games that could show the nation that the U is back. Shannon is gonna bring us back to glory.

draftguru151 06-05-2007 05:10 PM

One of the main guys I wanted was Patrick Johnson. He is such a great athlete and has fantastic ball skills, something our DBs have been severely lacking. Definitely want to get the NW boys in here too. Not that familiar with a lot of the other guys yet.

Wiggins looked very good in spring and even though we are deep at CB I think he could see some spot in nickel through out the year. DVD and Cooper will definitely help out the return game, last year I was happy if they didn't fumble the punt, I expect a few TDs this year.

I loved McCarthy in the spring game. He was everywhere. I really want to see him, Gooden and Cook starting. I was a bit worried about the DTs but McCray, Dixon and even Holmes and Hendricks looked very good in the spring game.

Man I can't wait for the season to start, very excited about next season.

draftguru151 06-05-2007 07:03 PM

I just realized Cooper is going to wear #2. Him and James wearing #5, man I wouldn't mind seeing something like this. :)

Any prospects that will be 1st day picks next year other then Kenny Phillips and Calais Campbell?

fenikz 06-05-2007 07:22 PM

i have them at the very least going 9-3 but im expecting big things

LB Tavares Gooden is a very good SLB prospect. 1st day is realistic for him. DT Teraz McCray if he can stay healthy. Lance Leggett is a possibility.

JeffSamardzijaIRISH 06-05-2007 09:26 PM

This Miami team is kinda similar to the Baltimore Ravens of a few years ago. Struggling offense, namely the passing game, good running game, and a lights-out defense.

RonnieRun23 06-06-2007 03:08 PM

Thearon Collier de-committed from Auburn and commits to Miami. He's a 5'9'', 165 pound WR from Booker T. Washington. He's not extremely fast, but he's very quick. Poor man's Devin Hester or Roscoe Parrish. 3, possible 4 star.

Best chance of any offense player we have this year. He has the tools and has shown them before, he just needs to stay healthy and be consistent, which really depends on the QB.

Is he the 6'6" one, or am I confusing him with somebody else?

draftguru151 06-06-2007 06:29 PM

He is 6-3.

Wow, Sam Shields ran a 4.26, fastest on the team.
