Miami DE no longer with the team

North Carolina v Miami Getty Images

Miami defensive end Kelvin Cain played in seven games this season for the Hurricanes. He will not, however, finish out the year. A university spokesperson confirmed to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that Cain, a member of UM’s 2010 recruiting class, was no longer with the program.

No reason was given for the departure, but Cain’s name had been removed from the online roster. There’s also the possibility that Cain was shown the door, although that has not been confirmed. Cain has been in Al Golden‘s doghouse before, most recently as this last spring when he was suspended for a brief time during spring practices for an unspecified violation of team rules.

In seven games this season, Cain had 11 tackles. He made an immediate impact as a freshman linebacker, recording 12 tackles in 10 games. He finishes with 43 total tackles for his career.

    Just purging what’s left of the Randy Shannon era at Miami.

    The sooner Golden has control of his upperclassmen the better.

    Sacrificial Lamb for underachieving coaching staff, school and fan base (all 10 of them) going down the drain.

    Can’t wait to see Muschamp once he gets his kids and no longer has Meyers guys. Miami fans went through smoke in mirrors once already with Davis’ kids then Coker getting the last bit and running the program into the ground.

    Another thing I can’t wait for, September 7th, 2013. You guys tried SOOOOOO hard to get out of that game but to no avail.

    Reports say the kids dad went on talk radio and blasted Golden. Called him a liar.

    Crazy cane , why on earth would Florida who is trending upward be worried about going to Miami to play a historically bad team? I’d say the gators have much much bigger things on their mind.. I’m sure they do.

    The already horribly badUM will be harshly sanctioned by then. UM will permanently be a 6-8 win team. They just can’t compete with the money any longer.

    Sanctions have been not so tough. FSU, OHiostate. And USC are all recent sanction schools. And yeah they’re all in the top 15 or so. Sure I think Ohio state and FSU just kind of won the preseason hype due to the annual FSU hype rest and Urbs going to Ohio. Because lets be serious, they have not played any really good teams, or just good teams. When FSU went up against the only top 50 defense they have faced, they lost -_-. A Miami fan I talk to a lot that doesn’t follow football much knows this: FSU is supposed to be good, and he loves Miami, but he knows they are not much of a team. After their game he asked why FSU is ranked so high? They looked horrendous vs Miami and if it were not for FSU just having faster runners that lift more weight they could have lost. ( the score won’t show it because Miami went full field 4th down territory a la NC state, except Miami just gave em a TD with 2 minutes remaining and it went down hill)

    tOSU went into overtime with purdue! Sure, they didn’t have Braxton, but it is still purdue! Even Kentucky could beat purdue with its back up QB in. They squeaked by a bad cal team, and have just played bad defense and have not really earned their ranking, for those of you who say it doesn’t matter, watch them be I. The top 10 next preseason. And working your way from UR to top 10 is very hard and have to beat good teams on the road. But to stay in the top 10 you just have to beat FCS teams, and some really mediocre ACC teams such as wake forest -_-

    Seriously preseason rankings give a big advantage and should really be removed until week 8.

    Back to my original argument, sanctions are rough, but easily countered with an easy schedule. Miami will have its two hardest opponents in UF and FSU and that won’t be easy. But after that year they don’t play UF again and their schedule should keep them in contention for an ACC title because that conference is so weak. Pitt will be a pitiful addition as they lost to an FCS team this year! Wow. Sorry just the truth.

    @35miles Thats what fathers are supposed to do for there kids right or wrong. The kid was not following rules and needed to go so the program can move forward. Also why are you so Negative about everything. I see you all the time with just the worst attitude about anything! Please cheer up for your mom and me please! P.S I love you!!!

    Any guy whose name refers to sex with dead people isn’t allowed to have an opinion about what fathers should do. One can only imagine what type of filthy pit you live in.

    I am sure that this wonderful person is still attending classes, so he could earn a degree, and go into the business world, in the future.
