Date:

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland (lower body) will not play on Saturday against Buffalo.

Ragland still is projected to come back right around the start of November for the RedHawks. In his place, Billy Bahl gets another start.
Oct 16 - 7:20 PM

Miami (OH) junior QB Billy Bahl will start at quarterback on Saturday against Kent State on Saturday.

Bahl (6'4/233) gets the start in place of Gus Ragland (lower body) who is likely going to be out for the rest of the month. In Bahl's career, he has completed under 50 percent of his passes, with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 16-to-21 in his time under center.
Oct 12 - 10:51 PM

Miami (OH) junior RB Maurice Thomas (undisclosed) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Thomas hasn't played since 9/16 when he left the game early against Cincinnati. He finishes the year with 38 yards rushing and 71 yards receiving.
Oct 9 - 6:46 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland (lower body) should be able to return this year, according to RedHawks coach Chuck Martin.

Ragland left Saturday's game against Bowling Green with the lower body injury, and is scheduled to have tests done on Monday. He's for sure out for at least Saturday, as Billy Bahl has already been named the starter for Saturday's contest against Kent State.
Oct 9 - 6:42 PM

Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner caught five passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 52-17 loss to Notre Dame.

Gardner worked a 34-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter and put in another score on a 14-yard grab early in the second quarter. The Redhawks would manage just three more points the rest of the way in what was a dominating win by Notre Dame. Over the course of five games played, the 6-foot-4, 212-pounder has logged a 21-406-4 receiving line. He should be able to keep this respectable show going when Miami tangos with Bowling Green next weekend.
Sep 30 - 9:06 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland threw for 217 yards and two scores on 11-for-19 passing in a 31-14 victory over Central Michigan.

Coming off a tough loss against Cincinnati in which Ragland threw a game-losing interception, the sophomore was much more effective against the CMU defense. His touchdown passes were a three-yard dart to Quinton Hardy late in the first, and a 50-yard strike to Sam Martin in the second to give the RedHawks a 27-7 lead that the Chippewas couldn't recover from.
Sep 23 - 7:14 PM

Miami (OH) junior RB Maurice Thomas exited Saturday's game against Cincinnati with an unknown injury.

Rough day for Miami, which was already making due without starting RB Alonzo Smith. Thomas, also a kick returner, had three carries for 17 yards and four catches for 69 yards before leaving. He recorded 258 yards rushing on an average of 7.0 YPC last year along with 11 catches for 105 yards. We'll update you on his status when more is known.
Sep 20 - 4:43 PM

Miami (OH) HC Chuck Martin hasn't yet clarified redshirt junior RB Alonzo Smith's (undisclosed) status for this weekend's game against Central Michigan.

For reasons unknown, Smith didn't play in last week's loss to Cincinnati. We're assuming he's suffering from a minor, undisclosed injury, as Smith remains listed as a starter on this week's depth chart.
Sep 20 - 3:24 PM

Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner (undisclosed) played limited snaps and recorded zero catches on Saturday against Cincinnati.

This explains why Gardner had zero catches in Saturday's game against archrival Cincinnati. RedHawks HC Chuck Martin has not yet clarified Gardner's status for this weekend's tilt with Central Michigan, though Gardner is still listed as a starter on this week's depth chart.
Sep 20 - 12:49 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland completed 16-of-31 passes for 221 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 21-17 loss to Cincinnati on Saturday.

Next time you want your team to be aggressive late in the game, remember this one. Ragland had just one turnover, but calling it costly is an understatement. With the RedHawks leading 17-14 and just 1:07 left in the game, Ragland tried to complete an out route to pick up the first down and secure the victory. Instead, he threw an interception to Malik Clements, who returned it for a touchdown. Brutal. Ragland will look to put this one behind him when Miami (OH) takes on Central Michigan next.
Sep 16 - 11:53 PM

Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner caught eight passes for 111 yards in Saturday's 31-24 loss to Marshall.

Gardner led the Redhawks in both receiving and yardage in the defeat. A year ago, he was named third-team All-MAC after catching 45 passes for 750 yards and six touchdowns. Off to a nice start for the current campaign. He is a potential Day 3 selection in next spring's draft.
Sep 2 - 10:30 PM

Miami (OH) redshirt sophomore QB Gus Ragland completed 23-of-41 passes for 298 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while rushing for an additional score in Saturday's 31-26 loss to Marshall.

Ragland scored on a one-yard rush at the beginning of the second quarter to give the RedHawks their first touchdown of the 2017 campaign. He wouldn't strike again until late, tossing one touchdown near the end of the third quarter and another with 8:07 remaining in the contest. The latter score drew Miami to within 31-26, but they would not score again in the contest. Ragland threw for 1,537 yards with a 17/1 TD/INT ratio over the final seven games of the past season. He will look to help the team to their first victory against Austin Peay. Big numbers could be in the offing for that one.
Sep 2 - 10:20 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline compares Miami (OH) senior TE Ryan Smith to "a poor man’s Michael Roberts."

Like Roberts, the Toledo tight end who Detroit took in the fourth round last April, Smith (6'4/265) is huge. "He’s a solid short range target whose forte is blocking," Pauline wrote of Smith. Smith recorded 31 catches for 356 yards and five touchdowns last season.
Jun 20 - 12:29 PM

Miami (OH) junior WR James Gardner "is a nice sized possession wide out with reliable hands and a consistent force who wins out for contested balls," writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

"I presently grade him as a late fifth/early sixth round choice but forty times will be critical for the junior in the lead up to the draft," Pauline wrote. Gardner (6'4/212) was a Third-team All-MAC selection last year, finishing the season with 45 catches for 750 yards and six touchdowns. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 65 fantasy receiver heading into the 2017 season.
Jun 19 - 5:25 PM

Saints signed Miami (OH) OT Collin Buchanan.

Buchanan (6’5/316) made 32 starts as the RedHawks’ right tackle, earning second-team All-MAC honors as a senior. A poor athlete with short arms (32 5/8"), Buchanan’s on-field play was inconsistent throughout college. He’ll have to show position versatility to earn a swing-reserve role in the pros.
