Miami (OH) senior DB Heath Harding accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Harding (5'10/190) has been a ball hawk for the RedHawks, intercepting ten passes in his career for Miami. He also had 62 tackles in his senior season, which at least shows a willingness to be a part of the run defense as well. He currently is earning late-round and undrafted free agent grades, but will look to improve that stock with a strong showing at the event.
Dec 12 - 4:07 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner could be one of the higher-graded senior receivers in next year's draft class.

That's if he doesn't jump to the NFL this winter. The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder posted a 47-927-11 line (19.7 YPC) in 11 games this season. His season is over because the 5-7 RedHawks didn't qualify for a bowl. "The big-play ability of this 215-pound receiver is startling, and so is his nose for the end zone," Pauline wrote.

Miami (OH) DC Matt Pawlowski will not return for the 2018 season.

Pawlowski has served as defensive or co-defensive coordinator with Miami (OH) since 2014. The Redhawks were relatively fine on that side of the ball this season in terms of the raw statistics (24.1 points per game allowed, just over 200 yards passing and 166 yards rushing surrendered on average), but HC Chuck Martin will be moving in a different direction nonetheless.
Nov 28 - 10:52 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Kenny Young (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Ball State.

Young (5'7/179) was injured against Eastern Michigan last Wednesday. The redshirt junior has rushed for 772 yards (5.4 YPC) and six touchdowns this season. With Alonzo Smith questionable with an undisclosed injury concern of his own and Maurice Thomas already nixed for health reasons, it's not quite clear where the Redhawks might turn for fortification at running back if both Young and Smith are unable to play.

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Alonzo Smith (undisclosed) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Ball State.

The absence of Smith would be a major deficit for the Redhawks, as he's rushed for 660 yards (4.6 YPC) and a pair of scores this season. Throw in an also-questionable Kenny Young and an already-ruled-out Maurice Thomas and Miami could be exceedingly thin at running back on Tuesday.
Nov 21 - 6:44 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland completed 22-for-32 passes for 251 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Wednesday's loss to Eastern Michigan.

This has more or less been a lost season for Ragland and his team. The 6-foot-1, 211-pound redshirt sophomore missed three games with a lower-body injury and his team never really recovered. The RedHawks (4-7, 3-4 MAC) were elimated from bowl contention with the loss to EMU. They'll close out the season next week against Ball State.
Nov 17 - 1:43 PM

Miami (OH) senior TE Ryan Smith recorded five catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's loss to Eastern Michigan.

Compared over the summer by Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline to "a poor man’s Michael Roberts," Smith has posted a 35-454-4 line thus far in his senior season. Smith (6'4/265) isn't very athletic, but he can catch and block.
Nov 17 - 10:38 AM

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Kenny Young left in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game against Eastern Michigan due to an undisclosed injury.

The exact nature and extent of the injury are not currently known. After Young exited, he was trying to get loose on the stationary bike on the sideline. We'll pass along updates as they become available. The Redhawks currently trail EMU 27-17 early in the fourth quarter.
Nov 15 - 10:00 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt junior RB Kenny Young had 198 all-purpose yards (100 rushing, 98 receiving on nine catches) in Tuesday's 24-14 win over Akron.

The return of starting QB Gus Ragland and the victory itself were the primary stories on Tuesday, but Young stole the show with his multi-dimensional contributions. He accounted for over 40-percent of Ragland's passing yards while topping 100 yards for the third time in his last five games.
Nov 8 - 4:48 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland (lower body) returned to go 19-for-32 for 244 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Tuesday's 24-14 win against Akron.

Ragland also had 21 yards on the ground. The 6-foot-1, 211-pound redshirt sophomore had been out of action since going down with the lower-body injury against Bowling Green on October 7, missing three games total. His return is a coup for the RedHawks (4-6, 3-3 MAC), who must win their final two games to return to a bowl.
Nov 8 - 4:34 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland (lower body) will start Tuesday's game against Akron.

Ragland has been out of action since going down injured against Bowling Green on October 7. In his six active games this season, the 6-foot-1, 211-pound redshirt sophomore has passed for 1,398 yards (53.6% completions) with a 12/4 TD/INT ratio. Billy Bahl, who has been starting in Ragland's place, will now shift to his normal backup role.
Nov 7 - 6:54 PM

Miami (OH) HC Chuck Martin said that he was hopeful that redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland (lower body) will be able to start against Akron on Tuesday.

"He’s got to get where he feels like he can do all he needs to do," Martin said of the redshirt sophomore. Ragland has missed the past three games while recovering from his injury concern. If he is unable to play on Tuesday, Billy Bahl would once more see starting honors.
Nov 6 - 6:39 PM

Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner had 10 catches for 166 yards and three touchdowns in Tuesday's loss to Ohio.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder topped the 100-yard receiving mark for the fifth time this season. One of the Group of 5's best receiving prospects, Gardner is up to 42 receptions for 847 yards and nine touchdowns this season.
Nov 1 - 1:45 PM

Miami (OH) junior QB Billy Bahl completed 28-of-51 attempts for 350 yards, three touchdown and two interceptions in Tuesday's loss to Ohio.

Bahl drew the start in place of Gus Ragland once again, despite the fact that Ragland was warming up before the game. Despite the loss, this was one of the best games of Bahl's career. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder will head back to the bench once Ragland is right, but he's shown in the past few weeks that he's improved over what we'd seen of him in 2015-2016.
Nov 1 - 1:11 PM

Miami (OH) junior QB Billy Bahl will start against Ohio on Tuesday.

Bahl is once again starting in place of Gus Ragland, who remains sidelined by a lower-body injury. The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder has thrown for 470 yards with a 2/2 TD/INT ratio in three games this season.
