Report: TE Beau Sandland seeking transfer from ‘Canes

Beau Sandland, Alfred Ansley AP

With exactly a week until its season opener, Miami has suddenly found itself with less depth at the tight end position.  Reportedly.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Beau Sandland has asked the Hurricanes for a release from his scholarship in order to transfer.  As for a potential destination, the Post wrote that “Sandland… wanted to attend college and play football in an environment more like his Woodland Hills, Calif. home, which borders the Santa Monica Mountains.”

Sandland had fallen to No. 3 on the Hurricanes’ depth chart behind starter Clive Walford and backup Stan Dobard, which was the likely impetus for the decision to seek a transfer. The senior was not in attendance at practice earlier in the day.

Head coach Al Golden declined to address the development when asked by the media.

Last season, Sandland caught nine passes for 94 yards and a touchdown. As a JUCO transfer, Sandland was a four-star member of The U’s 2013 recruiting class.

    Smart move kid. I’d get out of that cesspool area also.

    His being a senior is a drawback. In addition, if he isn’t good enough to play at Miami, he certainly isn’t good enough at Nebraska.

    Sandland just never got it going and I was really excited about him when he signed on. Smart move for a kid who has some aspirations to get himself noticed and play.
    As for you Nebraska guy, are you really serious? I mean…I guess it really is true that in Huskerland you guys really don’t live beyond your borders.
    Well here’s a clue. Nebraska is just another in a glut of second level big ten teams whose players lives start and end in that pathetic state of yours. It’s a solid program and I’m sure its a nice campus with a great fan base…but you need to check yourself before you start proclaiming that ur better than ANYONE.

    @ chicagocane, not going to get in the middle of your adolescent cat fight with huskeru but I and others can’t help but chuckle when you you comment on “that pathetic state of yours”. You are certainly entitled to your opinion of Nebraska as a state but it rings a little hollow when you reside in a city where people have to wear body armor to go to work and school. I heard it was a good weekend in Chicago, only 56 people got shot.

    I don’t believe I ever made reference or inferred that Nebraska was better than anyone. I merely stated that, if he couldn’t play for Miami after three years, he couldnt’t play for Nebraska.
    Nebraska recruited him out of high school as did Miami. He chose Miami. Good for him. I even texted congrats to him as I do all recruits who choose to go elsewhere. If he does show interest in Nebraska it isn’t feasible for the Huskers to take him for one year. Its tough to learn any complicated system during that time
    unless he “redshirts”.
    If any school, besides Ohio State who thinks they are the best its Miami. Its not “The” U or “The” Ohio State, its Miami University and Ohio State University.
    I am not going to beat this to death but to add to “noaxetogrind”, Chicago has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country but still has about the highest crime rate there is and most of their high ranking officials in prison.
    If you want a first-hand look at Nebraska and the university then go to Lincoln during the week end they play Miami this year.
    Hopefully you won’t feel the way you obviously feel at this point.
    Best total facillities in the country along with the freiendliest people.
    Good luck this year and have a good day.

    Sandland was a JUCO transfer. He didn’t play 3 years at Miami. Not for nothing but I can’t think of one single TE to come out of Nebraska off of the top of my head. Saying that he couldn’t play at Miami means that he won’t be able to play at Nebraska is ridiculous… even with the current down trodden state of the Miami program, I think Miami’s top 2 TE’s are better athlete’s than the converted tackles that Nebraska plays at TE (figure of speech based on watching Nebraska play).

    Btw… it’s The University of Miami, not Miami University. That’s why they’re called The U and also called UM.

    You really are an arogant A-hole aren’t you!
    Rooting for the Canes and being from Chicago makes you a two time loser! The Canes are the worst violators in the history of College sports!
    I live in California and fly back for Basketball and Football games. Watching Nebraska destroy the Canes in basketball last year sure was fun but the most fun for Nebraska fans wasn’t the game (It was boring) but trying to pick out the Cane players that actually went to school. What a joke. Nebraska and Miami play in three weeks in Lincoln Nebraska (nice not to have to play Miami at Miami every year) in a nice clean 91,000 seat stadium. It will be Nebraska’s 437th consecutive sellout (NCAA record since 1962) If you can scrape up enough enough drug money from that cardboard box you live in maybe you can watch Nebraska’s tight ends (converted tackles) catch a couple touchdown passes.
    We might not have 784 yards of offense as we did against Florida Atlantic but I think it will be enough to keep you entertained even though you may not like the outcome of the game.
    Nebraska has four starters out for the year already (injured or suspended) but we won’t use that as an excuse as you tried to do in your last post. We are young (only 8 Seniors) but, again, that won’t be an excuse
    Lastly, why don’t you ask Warren Sapp and
    Ray Lewis how it felt getting their asses kicked in the Orange Bowl by the “1994 National Champion” Nebraska team! Ray Lewis should have been in prison for murder but they got him off. Maybe you would like to talk about that Miami graduation rate over the years.
    Fortunately for Miami, Al Golden is addressing that issue.
    Bottom line, If Sandland couldn’t play for Miami he isn’t any better than the tackles Nebraska uses and certainly not academically.
    See you in Lincoln but I have a feeling you won’t be there.
