Chickillo Brings His “Motor” to the Steelers

In the first five plays I watched of new Steelers’ defender Anthony Chickillo, I saw him line up in four different spots along the front line of the Miami Hurricanes’ defense.

While that may be the case, I can flat out tell you that it won’t matter where Chickillo lines up for...

Run, Phillip, Run! (like the wind); Chickillo lean & mean; Denzel improves 40 (as did Duke), then pulls hammy

 You've got to appreciate former Hurricanes wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.  Instead of ducking from running the 40-yard dash at UM Pro Timing Day on Wednesday after winning $100,000 from Adidas for his blazing 4.33-second time at the NFL Combine (second-best time in among athletes at Indianapolis), he went full speed ahead and ran twice at Greentree Field.   With representatives...

College Football 2015: Is This Al Golden's Last Season in Miami?

If there was a definitive reason to believe Al Golden is underachieving at the University of Miami, take a look at the recent NFL Scouting Combine. Speed, speed and more speed. Talent, talent and more talent. Six Hurricanes players could be drafted in the first three rounds and while it is not the same kind of explosive talent pool “The U” used to have, there is still a lot to...

Duke's offense to test Miami's defense - again

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Given the way Duke's offense has piled up yards and points against Miami over the last two years, it's easy to see why Hurricanes' defensive end Anthony Chickillo was a little confused about the status of the rivalry. ''They've beaten us, what, the last two years?'' Chickillo asked this week. Might feel that way, but no, the teams have actually split those...
