Miami Depth Chart: Changes Highlight USF Week

Geoff Burke

The Canes take on USF this weekend in a match up that carries with it a litany of celebrations and potential milestones.

This weekend's game against South Florida is huge for many, many reasons. It is the final Miami home game of the year. It is First Responder's Day. It's Miami's Senior Day. If that wasn't enough, a win against the Bulls would make Miami bowl eligible for the 5th consecutive season. It would also give Miami a 4-2 home record, which would mean that in five seasons of playing at the cesspool that is Sun Life Stadium, they will have had a winning home record in 4 of them. It would also bring Miami's non-conference record to 2-2, which at face value doesn't seem great, but when you realize those 2 losses are against the number 1 and 3 team in the country right now, well....yeah.

All that being said, what better way to kick off such a jam-packed week than to make a whole mess of changes to the depth chart, right? Let's take a look:

  • Curtis Porter is now officially a starter, and that is just fantastic. The dude had an appendectomy and missed the first part of the season, but two games after being cleared to practice, he's starting again. Olsen Pierre is still your other tackle, and Luther Robinson is still backing them up along with former starter Earl Moore.
  • The linebacker spot has been shuffled a bit due to injury and suspension. Currently, Thurston Armbrister is your starter on the outside, along with Gionni Paul OR Denzel Perryman (expect it to be Perryman.) Jimmy Gaines is still in the middle, with Raphael Kirby behind him.
  • The safeties are Highsmith and Rogers, and will remain that way unless Deon Bush is ready to go by game time. Let's hope that he is, because we badly need his play in the middle of that field.
  • The only interesting note on the offense is the emergence of a wild Garrett Kidd. No one is sure what evolution he is currently on, or what attacks he has, so when trudging through the grass on Route 5 on your way to Pewter City, be careful!
