▪ According to a source, a decision has been made that Tate Martell will take classes at UM but not participate in spring ball, barring an unexpected change of plans.
It’s unclear whether Martell or UM initiated that decision. It’s also uncertain if Martell will look to eventually continue his football career elsewhere.
▪ The Canes will have three scholarship quarterbacks for spring ball: Tyler Van Dyke, Peyton Matocha and incoming freshman Jake Garcia.
Perry is completing classes at UM this spring and then intends to transfer, according to a source.
UM has said that it expects King to be back by August, in time for the Sept. 4 opener against Alabama in Atlanta.
▪ UM athletic director Blake James said he’s in communication with Michigan State about rescheduling their game in East Lansing — which was canceled this past September when the Big 10 initially delayed the start of its season and the Atlantic Coast Conference decided to play only one non-conference game.
As part of their home-and-home series, Miami and Michigan State will play at Hard Rock Stadium in September.
Miami’s canceled 2020 home game against Temple is being rescheduled for a future season, with an announcement on that pending. That was part of a two-game home-and-home series which will have UM playing in Philadelphia in 2023.
UM isn’t rescheduling its canceled Sept. 12 game against Wagner.
UM’s 2021 non-conference schedule includes Alabama in Atlanta and home games against Appalachian State, Michigan State and Central Connecticut. The ACC schedule will be announced Thursday.
New non-conference opponents that will surface on future UM football schedules include Southern Mississippi (home in 2022), Texas A&M (there in 2022, in Miami in 2023), Miami of Ohio (home in 2023), Ball State (home in 2024), Florida (in Gainesville in 2024 and in Miami in 2025), USF (home in 2025), Florida A&M (home in both 2024 and 2026) and South Carolina (there in 2026, home in 2027).
UM and Notre Dame will play seven times between 2024 and 2037.
▪ During a flurry of tweets about the Green Bay-Tampa Bay NFC Championship game, UM chief of staff Ed Reed questioned Green Bay’s defensive approach in allowing a Tampa Bay touchdown pass just before halftime and said:
“Dear #NFL and #College, I AM A Coach u know. Okay. Carry on.”
When former local talk show Brian “The Beast” London then asked Reed if he’s looking to leave UM, Reed responded: “Not leaving.”
▪ NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has two Hurricanes going in the top half of the first round of the NFL Draft: Rousseau 14th to the Minnesota Vikings and Jaelan Phillips 16th to the Arizona Cardinals.
“I’m a big fan of Rousseau and his potential at the next level,” Jeremiah wrote on NFL.com. “He has elite length and surprising pass rush polish despite his limited experience at the position. The Vikings’ defense took a big step back last year due to an inability to pressure the quarterback.”
And Jeremiah said “Phillips is the most gifted pass rusher in this year’s draft. He has an excellent get-off, he can bend at the top of his rush and he is a finisher.”
