300 former players watch Miami (FL) scrimmage

Miami (FL) went through a 120-play scrimmage today and Al Golden was glad to see roughly 300 former players in attendance.

Golden said around 200 former players were at the facility on Friday, and another 100 showed up today for the scrimmage.

“They (our players) knew they had to represent,” said Golden.

Even former head coach Jimmy Johnson spoke to the team on Friday.

Golden said that Coach Johnson talked to the players about the grind and hard work it takes to reach the highest level.

Golden added, “A lot of people want to look at those teams in the 80’s and they talk about their swagger, they talk about their confidence, or their flamboyance, but what Jimmy Johnson made a point of last night was that you have to be in incredible condition to play like that.”

First up for the Canes… at Maryland on Monday night, September 5th. Kick-off is set for 8 pm EST.
