Just read that. Yeah, I think he's gonna be awesome. Just what we need about now.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/college/hurricanes/sfl-spmarve21may21,0,3088651.story?coll=sfla-hurricanes
Awesome article on Robert Marve. To me, that's what high school football is all about right there. Passion, will, teamwork. I love the stuff abut his schedule...at school until after 10 pm, THAT'S dedication...not to mention the stuff about the 180 lb center...he's got he heart to succeed IMO
No worries, they'll grow on you when they are worn by outstanding athletes who score winning TD's for us. Not my favorite, but they'll do. I had to adjust to the last change and it was cool. Give it time man. It's still the Ueace1:AllCanes has got the new 07 Gear in and I'm not feeling the jerseys at all...I hope what they wear on the field looks different to the replicas..
look like soccer jerseys
While it would be great for our future to get Marve some playing time now, I'd rather him redshirt. I think Kyle still gives us the best chance to win. Call me optimistic if you want, but I think he was hindered by the playbook. I think if he got comfortable in an open offense, the sky's the limit. He just couldn't read his progressions in that vanilla offense correctly. It's all dependent on how hard he wants to work with Nix to get the playbook down. Oh yeah, that and the fact that his WR's are afraid to catch the ball. I remember Leggett complaining about how he throws the ball too hard. Maybe with the addition of Farquharson, McKenzie, Hankerson, and Adderly he'll be able to have a big season.With Kyle and Kirby yet to step it up I would love to see this Marve kid come in and take the starting job. Although Im pulling for Wright to come into his own, it would be great to have such a young prospect hit the road running.
I expect the OU game to be great, but the game every Canes fan waits for is the FSU game. It should be a great season.CFN made some pretty bold claims. Tabbed Campbell and Phillips as possibly the best two defenders in the nation, and also said Kenny Phillips is a top 3 draft prospect.
Can't wait for the OU game either. Game of the season.
If you grew up and went to school in Miami, you would understand why this happened. The fans did way more fighting than the players(i saw about 20 or so arrests being made throught the game). The enviroment was too hostile. I've been to a couple FSU games down at the Orange Bowl(Gore's overtime win a few years back being my favorite!), and the intensity in the crowd was about twice as much for the FIU game. And it bled down onto the players. I am an alumni from FIU, the hype for this game was about 2 years worth of marketing within the school. FIU did not have a football program when i first started going to school there, and i grew up watching the canes. When i went to the game, I wore canes stuff. There were also some kids that wore things from both schools. There is a mutual dislike between students from each respective school(If u interact with the students from each school you'd understand where it comes from, social classes, ignorance, etc..). You throw in alot of alcohol and the typical arrogance of Miami natives. End result is what came out that day. The press said nothing about the crowd to avoid negative publicity because of tourism. They are trying to cancel the scheduled meeting this year not because of the players because they can act right when they have to. The reason is that the fans were too hostile, i for one felt very unsafe that day. It was like an overwhelming feeling of uncertainty. I'm not proud of what went on that day, but if you're from Miami it's a direct representation of this city and you would know that.that rumble was a classless act that once again sullied our program... it is sad you think it is something to be proud of.
