After years of building the 7-on-7 platform in the tri-county area, two powerhouse clubs, the Florida Fire and BallerNation, are merging to form the nation’s premiere 7-on-7 organization. These two squads have combined to produce over 80 alumni that have played major Division I football, with several of those players going on to become All-American selections.
After nearly two weeks off, the Miami Hurricanes hit the practice field Friday in preparation for the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.
And what a happy, engaged and energetic bunch of players they were on this sunny, crisp and absolutely beautiful South Florida morning.
Here’s what you need to know before I get back to writing my more in-depth story to post...

Wednesday, UM coach Al Golden didn’t quite know what to think of safety Deon Bush’s injury.
“It’s going to be close with Deon, so we’ll see,” Golden said. “Hamstrings are funny. It can get better really quickly, or it can linger on.”

Expecting all four @MiamiHurricanes...
Mia Khalifa has moved on from trolling Canes fans to trolling Canes players on campus. Khalifa took her trolling to Coral Gables where she ran into Standish Dobard and safety Deon Bush. Both Dobard and Bush have no clue who Khalifa is but she tries to get the players on video to say “ Noles do it better”.

It’s Miami-Florida State week, so there’s plenty of animated discussion between fanbases.
Here’s a little bit of only-in-Miami trolling for you:

Don’t look now, but there it is in black and white. The Miami Hurricanes defense is ranked 11th in total defense, allowing 312.4 yards per game.

To the honest, objective observer, it’s clear that Miami’s defense has markedly...
