For all of you miami and gator fans.. watch out cromartie sees you :)
Well I dont think your passing to your right side. I looked at Cromartie's stat sheet and he has given up only 10 yards to his receivers in 7 (half scrimmages) and 2 (full scrimmages). BEAST!!!! Oh and Ernie Sims, AJ Nicholson, and Buster Davis say your not running up the middle either .

Thats why they play the game my friend! All those players are talented, but C4 didn't have that much trouble rushing for 4.3 yards per carry.
God you gotta love college football! Lake is wish you the best of luck (seriously rootin for ya bro)..just not the rest of your team

but dietrying i almost played for UF but a lot of **** got messed up.. so now im against them.. YOUR LOSS! haha j/k i guess i gotta prove myself first .

Let me be the first Cane to join in the fun..........
FSU's D will be good.......but, it has been that way the past 6 times we have played...and I think you know the result of those games.
Im sorry to see the best player on our team leave though...but Im sure your O wont miss Rix a bit. I think Sexton is a good fit for the next few years, from our standpoint.....he is going to be very giving to Brandon Merriweather and Devin Hester on D.
04-14-2005 03:47 PM
PS - I will speak to Willie Williams and beg him not to kill you....just everyone else in Garnet and gold.
Congrats on making the team - any word where you might be on the Depth Chart?
04-14-2005 03:54 PM
Ummmm............. Maybe your receivers & QB just suck! j/k

actually chris davis is definitely the next peter warrick.. honestly the sickest cutbacks and ****.. ill have to post a video up.. its REDICULOUS.
04-14-2005 08:03 PM
Lake - Devin Hester ain't neva scared of someone named Chris Davis.
And yeah, FSU's D was great every time the last 6 meetings against the Canes. So what?
Seriously, I love Cro. One helluva corner. Might even be better than Antrel.
Brock - yes, please tell Willie not to kill Suxton. Maiming should be enough!

This Devin Hester? Just curious?
UM's Hester tries to tap into his potential
By Omar Kelly
Posted April 9 2005
Nobody associated with Miami football plans to baby Devin Hester anymore.
Sure, he's the most dynamic college football player east of the Mississippi River. Miami's coaches will tell you he probably is the most gifted athlete the program has had in a decade. But heading into today's Canesfest scrimmage, Hester hasn't shown the ability needed to be a lockdown cornerback, much less a starter.
The former Suncoast High standout spent the first three weeks of spring practice serving as the coaching staff's whipping boy. His technique was flawed, and his knowledge of the team's schemes was below par. As a result, receivers he defended were getting open. But if quarterbacks dared to throw the ball to Hester's man, he often recovered quickly enough to deflect the passes.
Just as he has during his entire career, Hester was using athleticism to bail him out of tough jams. However, that's the coaching staff's biggest problem with him. Too often he relies on his quickness to save him as opposed to leaning on technique or understanding.
Hester has performed better in the final week of spring practices, but his inconsistent play has him behind senior Marcus Maxey on the depth chart.
Coach Larry Coker knows the Hurricanes need their most dynamic player on the field next season, but first Coker needs Hester's football IQ to match his physical tools.
"Devin just needs a lot of practice," Coker said of Hester, who began his UM career as a receiver before moving to cornerback last fall. "That's why we have the spring. He's still a fairly young football player. There's no doubt he's still getting better, but he'll be a difference-maker at times."
Coker has said Hester's physical tools are too special to waste on the sideline. Last year, he led UM with four interceptions despite playing cornerback sparingly in the second half of the season. But coaches wonder when he'll turn the corner.
Hester said he began the spring distracted by family issues.
"I'm just getting back to feeling good about myself, and I'm trying to make the best of it," Hester said. "I was coming out here feeling depressed, and it was showing in my play. I told myself, `Life goes on, and I've got to go out there and make the best of my situation.' I've got an opportunity here to be something special."
He said his biggest challenge is being mentally ready.
Former UM cornerback Antrel Rolle, who served as Hestor's mentor last season, has talked to him about leaving whatever happens off the field behind while learning from, but then forgetting the bad things that happen on it.
The Hurricanes are hoping Hester finally shows he can be a quick study.
"I've got to get a strong mind and don't let nothing bother me," Hester said. "When I get yelled at by the coaches, don't let it bother me. Block it out and keep playing."

Rumor has that you couldnt make the walk on for UF so you had to step down a notch and resort to an easier team like FSU. Bro, all I can say is good luck. We had our Orange and Blue game last weekend and Meyer has definitly turned our team around for the best. Every news reporting agency that attended the game has said that we are looking like spurriers old Gator team. The winning team! I cant wait to play you girls again.
04-15-2005 12:54 PM
Hahaha actually I never got to walk on at UF. I know I had told you guys that over a year ago and I had planned on it and was damn sure ready but paperwork got screwed up and i had already lost that year of eligibility and thats when i went into the military.

hahahaha im 28.. still not sure if ill be playing next year or not though.. i am engineering and honestly that is more important.. but i wont be 28 next year anyways since thats bookers number.
ps- guess who ate steak and shrimp with dieon sanders today ... he critiqued us on our (the defensive backs) techniques and **** too and watched film and stuff.. i chatted with him for a lil while he is pretty cool.. then we all ate dinner

Die - my take on that article is the mind-set presented is typical of the Canes. We do not tolerate highly talented players doing whatever. He did have 4 picks, in limited duty. He has had quite a few spectacular break-ups. He's also given up some TD's he shouldn't have.
This kid is, bar none, the most spectacular player in the country. Don't worry. He'll pick it up and be starting over Maxey by Labor Day.

JUST ONE THIONG TO SAY: HOW ABOUT THOSE HOKIES?!
04-15-2005 10:01 PM
Yeah, they know how to spell.
And they know how NOT TO USE THE ****ING CAPS LOCK!
04-15-2005 10:30 PM
As much as a Cali boy can actually care about Fla ball, I've always been kind of a 'Canes fan. Truth is now, though, I'm gonna pull for LMD and the 'Noles. Hell yeah, bro! Glad to support an AM bro makin' it big. That is BIG! I'm generally a Pac 10 guy, of course, but Florida certainly is the place to find excellence in NCAA football (and great *****ry!)
04-15-2005 11:47 PM
Die - good article on Hester. How long was Hesters Kick Off return 2 years ago in the OB...Wasnt it like 102 yards?
Honestly....I am one of the few "House Divided" Fans. I grew up mostly a Gator fan back in the days of Harrison Houston, Kevin Carter, Emmit Smith, etc... since my dad was a SAE at UF. I still cheer for the Gators as long as they dont play the Canes. Still go to the Florida-Georgia game every year. Anyways, I think UF is going to be sick with Meyer, Leak is gonna challenge for the Heisman this year. Wouldnt be surprised to see the Gates in the NC against USC or Miami (hehe).
On another note....the strangest "house divided" plate I have seen is UF-Tennessee. WTF? I hate the vols and Fatlip Fullmer is a putz. He looks like an oversized Gerber Baby.

F@ck the Hokies......my Fiance loves FSU and VT (she actually went there for a year before graduating from that junior college). Despite that, I still love her.
04-16-2005 12:10 AM
Brock - I graduated from UT. I lived in the athletic dorm for 2 years. Rocked Canes stuff at every chance. Anyway, after the 2001 championship, I bought one of the locker room sweats. I was wearing it one day to lunch that January, Fulmer stopped mid-conversation, stared at my sweat for a few seconds then walked off as his buddy continued talking.
I knew he was thinking to himself "Damn it, why did we schedule them for Homecoming next year!" I had great seats for that game in '02, bottom row of the upper deck on the 45. It was awesome.
04-16-2005 03:24 AM
In 02 we should have beaten them by 45 at least........
