There was a mild controversy in Miami last month when it was announced that defensive end Kelvin Cain was no longer with the team. The question was whether Cain left on his own accord, or was dismissed. That question was never officially answered, but now it looks like a moot topic of discussion.
Per ‘Canes coach Al Golden, Cain has been reinstated to the team and was back practicing on the scout team Monday.
“It’s personal, but he has been reinstated,” Golden said. “He sorted some things out, so I’m happy for the young man. It’s good to see him back out here today.”
Although Cain is not a starter, he has recorded 11 tackles in seven games this season, adding to the 20 he had in 2011.

Today one of college football’s biggest rivalry games will be shown to DISH customers in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth and seven other regions in Texas. The reason? Television contract disputes between Tegna and DISH.
Tegna is the largest independent owner of NBC and CBS affiliates in the country, including NBC affiliates in Denver, Washington D.C., Atlanta and Phoenix. The company is in a continued dispute with DISH related to fee disputes, per Variety.
“Our position has been simple: The same fundamental terms that allowed us to reach deals with distributors nationwide should serve as the basis for our deal with Dish,” a statement from Tegna said. “Rather than accepting that fair, market-based approach, Dish has refused to reach an agreement and once again is preventing its customers from accessing valued channels, even as customers continue to pay for that content.”
Now the dispute carries a concern for some fans wanting to watch Oklahoma and Texas this afternoon.
This should go over well, although there may be some Texas fans who may not want to witness what happens to the Longhorns anyway.
Heading into what could be his final game as head coach of the Maryland Terrapins, Randy Edsall will reportedly go with Perry Hills as his starting quarterback.
Hills, a junior, got the start for the first two games of the season but the leash was short. Edsall made a change to Caleb Rowe following a loss at home to Bowling Green. Hills has completed 52.9 percent of his passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions. Rowe has been a disaster at the position, completing just 44.0 percent of his attempts for 428 yards, four touchdowns and an astounding 12 interceptions in five games. Daxx Garman has struggled as well with a completion percentage of just 33.0.
