Addition by subtraction

With Streeter, Forston, and now Miller leaving is that a good thing for Miami? Other then Miller none of these the players are ready for the NFL.  Streeter needs one more year, and honestly I thought he could be an All-American next season.  Forston just never worked out, not every player coming out of high school turns into a great player.  I also don’t blame Drew Rosenhaus, the final decision to leave for the NFL draft is the players.  I think both players are dealing with seeing their friends they played with a Miami NW and Miami for eight years moving on.  So they feel they are being left behind, so there are moving on.  Miller is going to be the second best back in the 2012 draft.  He should be picked in the second round.  Miami has plenty of back to replace him.  I really like Clements to be the main back in 2012

I think this may be a good thing for Miami, because all of the Miami NW class of ’08 is gone.  Golden is brining is kind of player with the work ethic he wants.  The players he brought in were young this past season, but they play better then the upper classmen.  This will free up two more scholarships Golden can use to replace them.


Looking forward to spring

Well the season is over and I am getting adjusted not getting ready for a Miami games every weekend.    I was thinking about writing a breakdown of the season and grades for each position.  With all the good writers in the Miami area, they have done it over the last week.  Manny wrote a great blog about a few weeks ago.  It may have the best thing I have ever read from him.

I am still not sure where I am going with this blog in the off season.  I am going to write about recruiting from time to time, and on national signing day.  My issue with that is several of the players have not qualified to get in Miami, and will not know until June if they have.  I think a player should not be able to sign with a school, until he had qualified to inter the university.  There will be a handful that will be going to starting classes at Miami in January and practice in the spring.  I will write at least once week during spring practice and have a spring preview as well.  The spring game is going to be on April 14, hopefully the game will be at JRS.  I’m tired of watching the game on CSS on low def TV, and seeing it played in a high school stadium.

Well if I don’t write anything until after XMAS, have a good holiday season
