“When University of Miami coach Manny Diaz tweeted a GIF in mid-January of a swirling Hurricane, followed by a GIF of the late musician Prince holding up four fingers — as in (at that point) former UM No. 4 Jeff Thomas — astute fans immediately knew what it meant.
Thomas, a talent who had been dismissed Thanksgiving week by former head coach Mark Richt and was about to transfer to Illinois to play for his home-state Illini, was back.”
“Jeff Thomas isn’t one for impassioned locker room speeches or animated chats in front of reporters, recorders and television cameras.
But the soft-spoken receiver who found himself at the center of a storm late last season couldn’t help but smile on Tuesday after he and the Miami Hurricanes wrapped up their 10th practice of the spring.”
“The ACC needs a bounce-back year in 2019. Sure, the Clemson Tigers finished 15-0 with a freshman quarterback leading the way and dominated the Alabama Crimson Tide in the title game, but the rest of the field was quite weak. If FSU and Wake Forest can bounce back to eight or nine wins while NC State stays in the 9-10 win range, the conference will be much improved as a whole.”
“Tuesdays viewing period got under way with the offensive coming together and working on screen plays to tight ends and running backs. A couple of times, offensive line coach Butch Barry was not pleased with the effort being put forward by his unit and let them know about it.”
“Fans can now register for free tickets to the University of Miami’s 2019 Spring Game in Orlando. The game, presented by Florida-based Gulf Mechanical Contractors, will take place Saturday, April 20, at noon at Camping World Stadium.”
“Miami had recruited the 5’9” 193lb Tennison as a Safety, and had favorably compared him to former Captain Jaquan Johnson in terms of size and skill at the position. Tennison, who doubles as a running back in HS, had a standout performance at last year’s Paradise Camp which shot him up Miami’s recruiting board, and was one of the first players Miami took at DB in this class.”
