Over the summer, in a seven-on-seven drill, Kimble jumped up to catch a pass, landed funny and his knee buckled. He assumed he would be healthy once camp started, but after aggravating it, he’s been held out of scrimmages with a bruised knee. "I don’t think they want to push it too much and make it any worse," he said. "So I’m just taking it day by day, trying to get it better."

CORAL GABLES — With the final scrimmage coming up Saturday and just over two weeks until kickoff at...

CORAL GABLES — With the final scrimmage coming up Saturday and just over two weeks until kickoff at Boston College, it’s time to get real. How good will this Miami football team really be? That was one of the questions I posed ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit this afternoon in a quick phone interview. It was time to get some fresh eyes on the situation — someone from outside the bubble. He was honest about the Hurricanes’ success potential. "I think it’s going to be a long year," Herbstreit said. It’s incredible, I think, the challenge Al Golden has with that they’re trying to achieve this year. … I think if they’re a .500 team this year, I think that would be an outstanding year." Having so many young players potentially stepping into major roles will make for growing pains, Herbstreit said. "From following the game so long, it’s very rare to see young players step in right away, especially when you have a big group of them. When I look at them on paper, you don’t know a lot of the names so it’s unfair to say they’re not talented or they can’t live up to the lofty standards of The U, but looking at the names that you see, there’s really nobody that stands out to me that strikes fear into the defense. "Until they prove that, I think what they’ll face is a lot of 8-men up in the box trying to stop the running game and trying to get Stephen Morris into those 3-and-6, 3rd-and-7 situations and blitz him like crazy. Until the receivers can prove that they can get away from man-coverage, until this offense shows it can throw the football consistently, I think people will try to load up and close down the opportunity for this offense to make anything happen in the running game and put it all on Stephen Morris and the passing game." Now a decade after playing for its last national title, Herbstreit said the secret for Miami’s return to glory is not hard to decipher. "They’ve got to get this whole Shapiro thing behind them. I think it’s impossible to know how long that’s going to take. They need that dark cloud to just go away. That whole thing — when they’re still investigating — it makes you really look at the Penn State thing and really go, ‘wow, that was fast.’ This Miami thing has been going on for over a year. It’s the fear of the unknown that has such a negative impact on recruiting and the brand."

Louis-Jean’s absence is a tough blow to a secondary that came together under fire late last season....

Louis-Jean’s absence is a tough blow to a secondary that came together under fire late last season. He was engaged in a training camp battle with sophomore C.J. Jones for the starting field corner job. On the other side, sophomores Manuel Asprilla and James McCaffrey are involved in an equally spirited battle for the back corner position. "He and C.J. Jones were projected to be fighting it out for a starting job over there," Spaziani said. "There was good competition over there." Louis-Jean played in 10 games as a true freshman last season and recorded 15 tackles, three pass breakups, a forced fumble and an interception. Regardless of who emerged as the starter from training camp, Louis-Jean was expected to feature in the Eagles’ nickel and dime packages. "We play more than four guys in the secondary and he was certainly one of those guys we figured we would go in with," Spaziani said. "You never have enough of them, and when you have more than one, you play them in different spots. "It creates a little depth issue and it puts the freshman Bryce (Jones) into the picture a little bit. We still have a lot of camp before we have to get ready for the opener and we are going to find out some more things about some more guys.

On Monday cornerback Al Louis-Jean suffered a foot injury, breaking bones, which will sideline him at least two months–perhaps longer, which then means a medical redshirt is very probable. "With Al, it’s more a depth problem," conceded BC coach Frank Spaziani between sessions on Tuesday "We can move people around. Right now its C.J. Jones (moving into the starting slot at CB), but he is coming off a knee injury that knocked him out for the season after only two games last year. "C.J. still has some issues with his knee, so I’m not sure," said Spaziani. "Losing Chris will be tougher to deal with."

Whether it was in the classroom or on the athletic field, Mike Mendes '12 has been correct an awful lot during his two years at Wilbraham & Monson Academy. However, during graduation on May 26, Mike was wrong. For Mike and his family, though, that was a good thing. Mike, a three-sport athlete and high honors student, received one of the school's most prestigious annual prizes: WMA's Scholar-Athlete Award. "I didn't see it coming, actually," said the 19-year-old, who graduated with a 3.85 GPA. "I was thinking about it, but I was hoping another kid who has been at the school for a while should get it. People have been there five, six, seven years. Personally, I wasn't expecting to get any awards but I'm thankful the school recognized me. My family was there so that was nice." So exceptional he was accepted at Boston College and will be given a chance to make the basketball team as a walk-on. The 5-foot-9, 150-pound guard can't wait. "I'm ready for it and grateful for the opportunity to play at Boston College because, obviosuly, it's in the ACC," said Mike, who will major in biochemistry at B.C. "Duke was my dream school, but I still have a chance to play an away game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. It will be great."
