Usually don't post or click on stuff from SI but ....

There was a huge difference in Miami’s discipline last season. The year before, things got a little bit out of hand with the penalties. Last year they saw fewer flags—and they played much more physical. They’ve always been able to recruit well. Everybody’s waiting to see those high recruiting rankings come to fruition on the field. This could be the year.

[Miami’s linebackers] can run. They play sideline to sideline, and they’re physical. It’s a good combination, and to see those guys play at the level they did, as young as they were [three freshman starters: Zach McCloud, Michael Pinckney and Shaquille Quarterman], was A) impressive and B) scary. Up front, sometimes you get guys that can rush the passer but are not as good against the run. I felt like their D-ends [senior Chad Thomas and junior Demetrius Jackson] were as good against the run and could move. They’re big and physical inside.

[Senior wide receiver] Braxton Berrios has talent, and he can make plays. He has the ability to be explosive in space, so he’s a guy that you definitely have to be concerned about. [Sophomore wide receiver] Ahmmon Richards does a nice job of competing for balls. He made a lot of plays and competitive catches that really stood out to me.

What a crap analysis. Ahmmon Richards does a nice job of fighting for balls? This guy is projecting his personal life.

Does anyone really think that article was truly perspective from "anonymous rival coaches". It's SI pulling crap out of its own azz again and trying to attribute it to "rival coaches". The "sameness" of each part on teams does not strike you as being just a little bit odd ?!

Yeah, that description doesn't really crack the top five of positive attributes about Richards' game. I could understand "crisp, precise routes", "quick change of direction", or "great top-end speed". But not "fighting for balls".

Did we just get an anonymous coach telling us that Braxton Berrios is a threat in the pass game? That's the level of analysis and observation from our rival coaches? It's almost even more embarrassing we haven't won the coastal after reading that

He is at slot.

But we do have younger more talented players.

Another worthless poll posted on this site. Too many posters obsessed with preseason rankings. Please no more posts on where we are ranked before we even have first fall scrimmage.
