CORAL GABLES —Almost every day of the year, Miami tight end Larry Hodges has positive things to say about his former Jesuit High teammate, Malik Davis.

“That’s my brother,” Hodges said Tuesday during the Hurricanes’ media day. “That’s my dog.”

Maybe not for another week or two, though.

Hodges’ first career college game will come against Davis and the Gators next week in Orlando. The two have only been talking trash to each other about it for months.

“But it’s all love,” Hodges said.

The two have shut down their back-and-forth as the game approaches, but Hodges said it will resume again soon enough…probably around 7 p.m. on Aug. 24.
