@Matthew_Suero What’s your deal, dude?

Gus Edwards, mutha****a! 4 years in Coral Gables and he can’t get some recognition?!?

6 rushes, 34yards.

Not sure if Gus sees himself as a Cane. Coley and Ice Harris wasted his talent (So FL favoritism?). He sat behind Yearby and knew he was going to sit behind Walton, when we couldn't get a conversion on 3rd and inches. Now that's his specialty.
1. “Not sure…” isn’t good enough. There’s video of Gus throwing up the U when he first got to Baltimore. I think it was rookie camp.
2. Someone the likes of “Suero” or anyone else on CIS doesn’t get to say which football players who played football at Miami are Canes! Greentree is the naturalization process for the brotherhood/family, not season tickets/gear bought, degrees awarded, or posts made. (Head the nonsense off now: Cager is a Cane; Osborn is a Cane!)
3. Had Gus been a South Florida kid, I wonder if there would have been this reluctance to include him.

The fact that he wasn’t properly utilized during undergrad years is more damning to previous staffs, and that should be Manny Diaz’ mandate: how do you get the best out of these kids while they’re in Coral Gables. It‘s NOT just a matter of “evaluations”, it’s coaching and development. You have to coach the kids you got, not the ones you covet.
this is a great post and highlights a key issue.. you can't allow a kid to stay at a high-school level and play college football no matter how many stars he had. excellent player development is a critical area of an elite program.
