Date:

Miami freshman WR Ahmmon Richards caught four passes for 142 yards in the school's 45-10 win over Appalachian State.

Richards exploded in this game, including a 62 yard reception. We might look back and consider this Richards' coming out party. Only Stacy Coley and Dayall Harris caught more passes for the Hurricanes.
Sep 17 - 3:56 PM

Miami sophomore RB Mark Walton rushed for 130 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in the school's 45-10 win over Appalachian State.

Walton broke a huge tackle at the line of scrimmage, which allowed him to run free for the next 79 yards. Obviously that means Walton rushed for 50 yards on his next 15 carries, and the sophomore seems to have taken the clear lead ball carrier role in Miami's offense. Joseph Yearby still received eight carries and Gus Edwards claimed four.

Miami junior QB Brad Kaaya completed 20 of 26 attempts for 362 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 45-10 win over Appalachian State.

Kaaya ripped up the Mountaineers, who were hosting this game. Kaaya manipulated and managed the pocket like a pro, lofting passes over linebackers and defenders to receivers in open areas of the field. We do have to bring up Kaaya's interception, however, as it was in the red zone which is an absolute no-no for quarterbacks. Kaaya obviously does not have a strong armed compared to some other passers, but his timing and comfort in the pocket stand out. Miami faces Georgia Tech next.
Sep 17 - 3:34 PM

Miami sophomore RB Mark Walton rushed for 155 yards and four touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 38-10 win over FAU.

On an afternoon in which QB Brad Kaaya failed to throw for a touchdown, it was the Miami running game that stepped up to shine. Walton was the headliner with his lofty yardage total and 9.1 YPC, but Joseph Yearby chipped in with 121 yards and a touchdown of his own. This makes back-to-back games in which both Walton and Yearby have surpassed 100 yards rushing. Both young men hold legitimate fantasy value.
Sep 10 - 9:44 PM

Miami junior QB Brad Kaaya completed 17-of-31 passes for 191 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 38-10 win over FAU.

While Miami ended up blowing Florida Atlantic off the scoreboard, this was not one of Kaaya's finer efforts. Even setting aside the lack of touchdowns -- and the two picks -- the 6-foot-4, 209-pounder averaged a mediocre 6.2 YPA. He will try to rebound in a road date with Appalachian State next weekend.
Sep 10 - 9:39 PM

Multiple outlets are reporting that Miami freshman WR Sam Bruce suffered a broken leg while playing basketball.

Bruce had already been ruled out indefinitely due to an injury to his "lower extremities," but further information is beginning to trickle out as to the exact circumstance. According to both the Miami Herald and CanesInSight, the 5-foot-8, 183-pounder broke his leg while playing basketball -- though Bruce's mother is denying those reports. Regardless of how it happened, the four-star wideout is off to a rocky start for his career. On top of the potentially severe injury, he is currently serving out a three-game suspension.

Miami suspended freshman WR Sam Bruce is out indefinitely after suffering a non-football injury.

Because this is college football, details were not disclosed other than stating it was an injury to his "lower extremities." Bruce was set to miss the first three games of the season due to suspension but could have contributed upon his return. That debut will now be delayed.
Sep 9 - 10:33 AM

Miami redshirt freshman LB Jamie Gordinier is expected to miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a knee injury.

Gordinier suffered the season-ending blow during Saturday's 70-3 stomping of Florida A&M. This was the 6-foot-4, 235-pounder's first taste of collegiate play after taking a redshirt in 2015. The Hurricanes are suddenly painfully thin at linebacker, with Jermaine Grace (dismissal) and Juwon Young (left team after being suspended) both out of the picture and Darrion Owens continuing his recovery from a 2015 knee injury. Freshmen Shaquille Quarterman, Zach McCloud and Mike Pinckney will all be asked to carry a heavier-than-normal load this season.
Sep 5 - 12:21 PM

Miami sophomore RB Mark Walton was one of three backs to rush for 100-plus yards in Saturday's 70-3 win over Florida A&M.

Walton (116 yards rushing), Gus Edwards (106) and Joseph Yearby (105) all cracked the century mark on Saturday. As a team, the Hurricanes gouged the Rattlers for 373 yards on the ground. The 5-foot-9, 195-pound Walton led Miami with 15 carries. Indeed, he was the only one of the three running backs in question to receive double-digit carries. Walton is technically Miami's starter at the position, but all three players should see their fair share of work as the season unfolds.
Sep 3 - 10:36 PM

Miami junior QB Brad Kaaya went 12-of-18 for 135 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's win over Florida A&M.

Miami's offense was locked-and-loaded for this one and took a 28-3 lead into the locker room at the half. The Canes then proceeded to charge into the third quarter, scoring a school-record 42 points over the next 15 minutes of game action. Kaaya and company will do battle with FAU and Appalachian State the next two weekends before they hit conference play in a road date with Georgia Tech on October 1.
Sep 3 - 10:29 PM

Miami suspended freshman WR Sam Bruce for three games due to a violation of team rules.

This could be tied to a July incident in which Bruce allegedly posed in a photo while brandishing a weapon. At the time, the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reported that Miami was considering a two-game suspension. They ended up settling on three. The 5-foot-8, 183-pounder will sit out today's game against Florida A&M, plus contests against FAU and Appalachian State.
Sep 3 - 4:08 PM

Dismissed Miami senior LB Jermaine Grace indicated on social media that he wants to return to the program before the end of the season.

Grace and DE Al-Quadin Muhammad were both dismissed in late August due to their alleged improper use of luxury rental car. On Instagram, Grace wrote, "I’ll be back really soon God has a plane for me and it’s to finish my last season as a cane. He has the last say so." Perhaps to help facilitate his return, the 6-foot-1, 221-pounder has reportedly hired attorney Jason Setchen. Miami will honor the scholarships of both Grace and Muhammad should they choose to remain at the university, but a return to the football program is looking unlikely at this juncture.
Sep 1 - 3:05 PM

The Palm Beach Post's Matt Porter reports that barring new information in a luxury rental car scandal, Miami senior WR Stacy Coley will not be suspended.

Defenders Al-Quadin Muhammad and Jermaine Grace have already been dismissed due to their alleged improper use of a luxury rental car service. Coley was investigated in the matter, too, but it looks as though he has avoided a similar fate. Last season, the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder hauled in 47 passes for 689 yards and a quartet of touchdowns.
Aug 31 - 12:31 PM

Due to academic issues, Miami freshman WR Dionte Mullins has yet to gain admission to the university.

"[Mullins is] still working. He's not out of it," said HC Mark Richt. He also indicated that he expects the 5-foot-11, 179-pounder to be with the team this year, though. Mullins might be nearing the light at the end of the academic tunnel. That would be a nice beat for the Hurricanes, as he ranked as ESPN 300's No. 92 overall prospect for the 2016 cycle.
Aug 27 - 7:52 PM

Miami senior WR Stacy Coley's status with the university remains uncertain due to his potential involvement with a luxury car rental service.

A pair of key Hurricane defenders in Al-Quadin Muhammad and Jermaine Grace were dismissed from the program on Saturday due to this luxury car scandal. Coley was reportedly being investigated for his potential role in the situation as of August 20, but at least for the time, he remains with the university. In the same breath, though, Coley has not yet been cleared to play in the season-opener against Florida A&M next weekend. If the university moves against him in the form of a dismissal, that would be a painful blow for a Miami offense that is working to rebuild its skill-position talent.
