I went to this last night with my son. It is a pretty cool event. It's like a smaller, less organized version of the NFL combine. They did a piss poor job of handing out programs for the fans, meaning they gave out a few, and either ran out or just stopped giving them out. A few people in the stands had programs that listed the players, their positions, teams, etc. Without that, it's difficult to tell who's who becasue they have their team names on the back of their jerseys, not their names.
Anyway, highlight of my night was after the event. My son and I were at the Opening store and while he was looking around, I noticed a familiar face but couldn't remember who it was. He walked out of the store and by then it was time for us to leave. I walked up to the guy and introduced myself and asked him if he used to coach RBs at UM. He said yes. It was Coach Harris. He was with another familiar face. I told him I recognized him, but apologized that I couldn't remember his name. It was coach Roland Smith. My son and I talked to them for 5 minutes or so. They were both very nice and laughed at my stories about having to be a Miami fan all by myself in Dallas. (People here for the most part remember the '91 Cotton Bowl, or do their best to act like it didn't happen). I told them they needed to direct their best players to Richt. They laughed, but also said something like "we can't direct them to go anywhere."
Coach Smith played at UM. I didn't know that. I felt like an idiot and apologized to him for not knowing that.
They were nice to my son and took a pic with him.
Good times. We'll probably go back on Tuesday to watch the 7on7. I like that more than the individual stuff.
That’s what I’m saying, I get that DBs, RBs, and LBs have been Miami’s cream of the crop for like ever, but we have a real opportunity to recruit & win 3 5* offensive linemen, #1 OT in the nation, #1 OG in the nation, it may not be the sexiest position, but lock these boys up and every 5* RB starting from 2020 will be begging for an offer from us, I say we should stop stressing on these DB Divas, only lock up Stevenson or Battle at this point, and put all of our focus on locking up these Linemen.Kardell still out here bragging bout the canes lol. He wants to play with evan neal. Evan neal wants to play with darnell wright. Miami in the top 2 with all 3. **** around and let us get 3 5* OL lol
Wouldn't read into that at all. Unlike the Opening Miami Regional where you could just walk around wherever you wanted as long as you didn't walk into the middle of a drill, this event is very very restricted. In terms of viewing angles, we have 3/4ths of one sideline and an up top balcony, and there are multiple drills and multiple games going on at once at different points of the field. You basically see who you can see that's in front of you, you don't get much choice
