UM post-OU lockeroom scene

Just got out of the UM lockerroom after the Canes got thrashed by fifth-ranked Oklahoma 51-13 on national television.

Here's a quick rundown of reaction:

- Quarterback Kirby Freeman declined comment. His quote: "Oh, I'm not talking to the media."
- Quarterback Kyle Wright spoke at length, but would not say if he thinks he should be named the starter next week. "I'll let the coaches decide that." Wright was seen after upbeat and smiling with some family and friends.
- Cornerback Randy Phillips owned up to his bad day after getting beat regularly by OU's receivers. "It was the worst day of my life," he said.
- Javarris James asked not to be interviewed.
- Calais Campbell said Miami will rebound against FIU next week.
- Derrick Morse said "we're just going to have to eat this loss." He said Miami's offensive struggles were mostly due to poor communication.

I'll be back with full audio uploads later tonight. But that's the quick scoop from Norman.

MiamiSooner, you were very quite after the loss to BSU. You should feel good about beating down an average Miami team. Were you this talkative when great Miami teams dusted you guys several times in the '80s? I didn't think so.

Just remember that we signed a home and home. Things will be very different when you come to Miami next year!

Sooner-go jerk off in the boomer sooner!!!

Stop the BITCHING we all new before this game that the CANES would need to be perfect to win. And OU would need to make a few mistakes. OU no mistakes except for the one fumble,CANES many mistakes and far from perfect. Also I am sure that the team is more disgusted with their performance than we could ever be. Flat out CANES right now do not have the level of talent needed to compete with the OU's of college football but Shannon know's this and is addressing it. Acording to most reports the CANES have the #2 recuiting class as far as verbal commitments goes, right now the future looks bright. And this team will improve as the season goes on. It could be worse we could be Michigan fan's and they expected to play for a National Championship this year. MICHIGAN 0-2 MIAMI 1-1
Which team looks better. GO CANES

sorry to say it fellow canes fans, and it makes me sick to my stomach to admit it, but i dont see anything above 8 and 4 this year. look at the SCHEDULE and be realistic fans...even if they beat texas am, without TAKING OFF MARVE'S REDSHIRT (IF HE IS HEALTHY) and without finding another corner or defensive tackle or receiver off of the practice squad, where is the talent/PLAYMAKER going to come from? its not there this year. i would like to hope for a win at UNC. I will be happy with a win or close game at either one of fsu, va tech, or boston college. even if they win the rest of the games at the OB, thats 8-4, and that would mean they need to beat texas am (who will come in undefeated) and beat ga tech (who will also probably come in undefeated)...MAKES THE DAY EVEN WORSE THAT FSU CAME BACK AND WON.

Mario, dude, you gotta' put the juice down for the night. You're slurring your typing...

The ACC sux...

CANS FAN UNITE LETS DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT ITS BEEN YRS OF NOT SUPPORTING CANES IF THEY DONT WHEN WON GAME LET THE TURNOUT AT FIU BE LIKE MARSHALL, IF UR NOT GOING TO THE GAME THEN SELL EM TO A KID WHO WILL WANT TO GO! "DONT GIVE UP NEVER GIVE UP" JIMMY V

WE JUST GOT BEAT BY A BETTER TEAM. YOU GUYS NEED A DOSE OF REALITY. THIS GOING TO TAKE TIME!HOW MANY NEW COACHES WIN IT ALL IN THERE FIRST YEAR? COKER... SEE WHERE THAT GOT HIM. GIVE THESE GUYS A CHANCE.. DID CARROLL WHEN EVERY GAME HIS FIRST YEAR? MEYER? GET THE POINT... JUST BE SUPPORTIVE!

guys there is no way that u guys expect the canes to win this game, no way. I knew we were gonna lose, i wanted them to win, but i knew that were gonna loser

As for Kyle Wright, he looked awsome, he only got sacked once, he threw precise passes, he ran the offense perfectly up the field, and the most important think: no interceptions. Its obvious he learned he wasnt promised the starting spot, so hes been working his ass off, and it shows, i dont understand y in the hell RS took him out of the game

Ive said it before.. 10-2 and acc championions

wow what a shock bandwagon fans in miami... yeah our qb sucks if the ground was a receiver he would be incredible... sadly kyle has a stronger arm....i mean kirby cant complete a pass to the other side line without taking a skip or two or 7... but oh well....the play calling is horrid....nix was a good coordinator because of calvin johnson....is it too early to start marve....and btw fellas give the coaches a lil time i mean whole new staff and we went to play at norman... OU is a good team THE U will get there again...but seriously please bench KIrby he has absolutely no arm strength and these coaches gotta start making some decisions.... not just extra laps after practice...BENCH EM if they wanna not give 100% Legget and Jenkins should be put on the scout team.... the only players that showed me any passion was colin mccarthy baby j and coop....we gotta start somewhere when u hit the ground... r u gonna stay down or man up!!!!!!!!!!! and not against FIU those UM rejects....

Nothing will change the fact that our coordinators(hired by Coker), are mediocre and not up to the quality demanded by Miami. I remember their hirings, after the overhaul which sent Soldinger, Kehoe, et al packing, and immediately thinking, "... huh? who? louisiana what?(QB coach todd berry) gtech?(nix obviously... an offense which comprised of: 1) draw with reggie ball; 2) throw a prayer to calvin johnson and let his athleticism take over) are you serious?"

fact is that our coordinators didn't get the job done; the playcalling was horrendous. QB options in short yardage situations aren't the answer. 5 yard deep sweeps, inevitably tackled for losses, aren't the answer. digs. slants. dives. that's what you ride - not this cutesy stuff. since when has miami - a pro style offense - ever run the option? and what kind of coordinator asks kyle wright - a pro style QB - to run the option?

the only criticism of shannon i have is that he could take a page from coker's playbook in 2003: when you're shaky at the QB position, you keep things safe - go to the TE(which I don't believe we did once), run plays to the flats, and pound the ball on the ground. our offense gameplan looked just plain bad.

i have no idea what to say about our D. shannon has consistently had top 5 run defenses since 2001. miami always recruits and conditions for speed. so why did we look so slow? i still don't understand that one.

all in all, it was a tough, embarrassing, exposing loss. but, keep your head up, canes fans. we should win our next four(texas a&m might prove tough, but we should win in miami), and then we play gtech. we'll probably lose that game and again in blackburg, but there's no reason why we can't win every other game. fsu, unc and bc will all be difficult, but we'll win.

so just have faith and stop being a bunch of pansies. when your team struggles you stand by them.

go canes.

I saw enough to know that we are not there yet. I saw that Kyle should be the starter. I saw that Kirby looks like he is shot-putting when he throws. I saw that Coach Nix better get his "ass in gear" because that gameplan was just plan awful. I saw that our offensive line, and defensive line are gonna be great. I saw the Mr. #6 only needs to play in nickle, and dime situations. He can't cover my mama. All in all I saw enough to know that we are not there yet, but we will be GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!

Okay Listen: Miami plays the same D that Shannon played in the 80s at the U. Now that defense put pressure on the QB consistently. Therefore, the DBs could play man because they did not have to maintain coverage for as long as Miami expects its' CBs to keep coverage with no QB pressure. We have pressure against Marshall and the likes, but not against OU and similar teams. If you guys look back over the last couple of years, you will see that our DBs have been victims of a bad scheme that does not work at all times, yet we stay in the same defense. So if you guys think that it is all on Randy Phillips, then you should really analyze his coverage----he never got burnt in this game. OU got him on the first one because the middle of the field was open---safety up to stop the run. 2nd: miscommunication?. 3rd: no safety help, no pressure on QB who made a perfect throw.

OU is the best team the Canes will play all year. Va tech is stinking up the joint at LSU. Texas Am escaped in 3ots. Shannon must let the freshman QB take his lumps when he heals. Butch waited too long to put Dorsey in for Kelly. The car accident really screwed us.

The Oklahomo game won't make or break the season Canes need to concern themselves with the ACC opponents to make their season.

Some of you all are ridiculus. I'm not surprised that OU beat us the way they did. They are the #5 team in the nation and we are unranked. THEY'RE EXPECTED/SUPOSED TO BEAT US THE WAY THEY DID...

Two games into the season and we're asking for Coker back, and a host of other bull****...I understand some of u maybe diehard fans but we have to be realistic here. Da U is 1-2 years away from being a dominant program again (its going to start with this years recruiting class)...

If we would have won this game I would have been happy. Am I upset that we lost the way we did, yes. But truthfully, I wasnt expecting a win because although I'm a diehard fan...I'm also a realistic fan...OU is a potential nat'l champ this year and as much as many of you hate to accept this...WE ARE AN UNRANKED TEAM...so we're not expected to do much...

LETS SUPPORT COACH SHANNON AND THE TEAM. WE'RE UNRANKED FOR A REASON. OU IS THE #5 TEAM IN THE NATION FOR A REASON. IF THIS HAPPENS IN YEAR 2-3 OF SHANNON'S TENURE...THEN WE HAVE A PROBLEM...UNTIL THEN, I'M JUST LOOKING TO BEAT FSU (WHO IS ALSO STRUGGLING) AND MAYBE EVEN WINNING THE ACC.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SEES THAT V-TECH STRUGGLED LAST WEEK AND ARE GETTING THEIR REAR ENDS WHOOPED TONIGHT BY LSU. LSU IS #2 AND V-TECH #9...V-TECH FANS ARE THE ONES WHO NEED TO BE WORRIED...

IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, "THE MEDIA" PICKED FSU VS V-TECH IN THE ACC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME...BOTH TEAMS ARE ALSO STRUGGLING...THE ACC IS WIDE OPEN...DA U STILL HAS A CHANCE...LETS CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEM...

GO CANES!!!

Give OU some credit. They are a much better team than UM is. Congrats to them.

Hopefully this puts some perspective on how far UM has to go. It's a long way.

I'd guess 3-5 years.

Again, congrats to OU. Great game by the Sooners!!!

"Wright was seen after yucking it up with some family and friends."

What do you think he should have done - shot himself? Dude - that's uncalled for. He played well - considering he's a backup he played better than the starter.

OU is good enough to beat almost every team in the country - so stop with the BS criticism. I wouldn't be surprised if OU plays for the national championship with this team - and when you consider how young they are, they will be a force the next time we meet them in 2009 as well.

I love the canes - win or lose. They need to forget this game and move on to the next as soon as possible.

The U will rise again - despite all your hate filled comments.

F U haters. Go Canes!

I really liked Shannon calling the fake field goal. It seemed as if he was sending a signal to his underperforming offense that they either score a touchdown then or the game was going to get real ugly, real fast.

It was apparent that OU had the better athletes period. It was also apparent that the Miami players had been poorly coached for years.

Shannon has a long uphill climb to recruit talent and teach his current players the "art" of the game. It's going to be years before Miami returns to the top 10... if ever.

Dolphin Stadium is not a football stadium, it's a multi-putpose facility that takes the crowd out of the game. In Dolphin Stadium, the Cane's will lose the home field advantage they had in the Orange Bowl. Shannon will come to curse the day he never objected to the move.

Hey Manny,

Your comments about Kyle "Yucking it up" are incredibly irresponsible and unprofessional. I was there too, and you are painting a false picture for these fans and readers

You need to watch out with what you do my man. This type of false information won't get you very far.

Creating stories where there are none isn't what your job should be about.

BRING BACK COKER????? man shoot yourself he's the reason why were struggling now...these arent the new regimes recruits...one step at a time.... I BELIEVE IN SHANNON.... we will get back to the TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.... his recruiting is incredible...the recruits watched this game and were motivated...they know they're gonna turn the U around.... but please QB sneaks are really effective with a half yard to go just a thought....

Have we noticed that when a player plays bad he doesn't want to talk to the press or being interviewed ?. Now, if UM wins they boast, make predictions, make fun of the other team and claimed himself the best and badder player in the universe. It all comes from the top, Shannon is like a little kid that doesn't want to be scolded, he just wants to be praised ?. LC always took it as a man and had class and dignity. He was a gentleman all the time, whether he lost or won. By the way we didn't lose a game last year as lopsided as this one.

apparently randy learned from the joker, how not to make adjustments. O.U. has a qb with 1 year of experience and U.M. has two with at least 3 years under each of them and they both look they have never thrown a pass in college. Randy got burned but he's a good kid who had a bad day & he knows it, this game will make him better. Where is the improved offense??? I'm on the west coast so get to see hawaii's passing attack, that's what every hardcore cane's fan wants for christmas, a passing game like hawaii's and a qb who can get it done.

LISTEN TO ME GUYS IM 4 HRS AWAY FROM MIAMI I DRIVE TO EVERY HOME GAME, IM STILL A TRUE CANES FAN, THIS BASHING HAS TO START , YOU DONT THINK RECRUITS LOG ON HERE TO SEE WHA FANS SAY, YEAH MOST OF OUR RECRUITS PLAYING ARE FROM COKER, U SEE IN THE STREET THROW AN ORANGE AT HIM FOR ME, FOR BEING A SOUR PUSS ON THE AIR WAVES, COACH SHANNON IS CLEANING THIS PROGRAM UP,AND WE NEED TO BE A COMMUNITY TO LURE IN RECRUITS BY SUPPORT THE CANES BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, WE WILL BE BACK TO DOMINANCE, JUST BE PATIENCE, THIS IS A GAME IS BITTER SWEET, WE LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES SO THAT WHEN WE PLAY TOUGH TEAMS AGAIN WE WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO, GIVE NIX A BREAK , SHANNON A BREAK, THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR COACHING AGAINST TEAM LIKE THAT, SUPPORT THE ORANGE REVOLUTION BE A MAN, GRAB YALL NUTS, WHAT YOU EXPECT 7-6 SEASON LAST YEAR, A PLAYERS DEATH, TEAM FIGHTING, TO ME GREAT NEW COACH, WE WILL BE BETTER TAKE TIME , IT SHOWS RIGHT NOW BY RECRUITING, DISCIPLINE, I CAN CAN SAY RIGHT NOW WE WERE BETTER THAN LAST YEAR, AND WILL CONTINUE TO GET BETTER, WATCH OUT R. MARVE HE GONNA CARRY US ,HE A WINNER, STATISTICALLY, ATTITUDE, AND AS A FOOTBALL PLAYER. IN SHANNON I TRUST!! -mario

It's not often that I post on here. But, for some reason I wanted to share my views. Let's be honest, we got a royal ass whooping from the sooners. But hey, it's not the end of the world. And let's not be fair weather fans. I'll be one of the ones to say that there is NO QB CONTROVERSY. The choice is clear, Kyle Wright is in and Freeman is out. Kyle was able to move the ball down field and score. As for Freeman, I don't know what the hell he was doing out there once Kyle got back in. My guess is, either the coaches threw in the towel or they wanted to give Freeman another shot at keeping his job and he did a horrible job. He lost his job at that game and from now on we should see Kyle being the starter the rest of the year.

I know some people want to criticize Lance Legett, but on the first play, that was a great call by the coach, but Freeman's rubber arms couldn't get the ball to Legett... the ball took a long time to get there. I am guessing had it been Kyle the first play would have been a touchdown and that could have made all the difference in the world.

It seems to me that the Offensive Line was better at protecting the QB than they were at opening up holes for the running game. Additionally, the kickers suck.... thanks to them OU benefited greatly from field position.

I don't know what the hell was going through Patrick Nix's mind with all of those quarterback draws with Freeman.... DUMB CALLS. So many times the offense had an opportunity to come away with a touchdown, they ended up settling for field goals. That's very discouraging to the defensive players. The offense didn't help the defense at all except for that one drive with Kyle.

Defensively, I don't like the calls that Tim Walton was calling. I personally don't think he put the players in a situation to make plays. As for Randy Phillips, I hope he keeps his job, learns from the game and be a better corner because of him. They weren't picked on DVD as much, I guess that should speak volume.

Despite what happened today, I see that the Canes have improved. The O-line is playing better. We need Kyle to step up and be the QB we all know he can be. It's not Freeman's time yet and he proved it today.

I would not be surprised at all if this is the ONLY game the Canes lose this whole season because the ACC is very suspect.

In conclusion, if we can improve on special teams and offensively, then we'll be a force to be reckoned with. Now, it's time to go to the drawing board and get the offensively line to be able to block and open up holes consistently in the same game.

First of all , Shannon will get us back on track hes a winner with an leader attitude, statiscally shows as a player and defensive coach soon as a head coach!!!! we will win the acc, this lost is bitter sweet situation, bad that we lost but good for us to see where we stand and what we need to get better at, and for the peeps out there talking about hiring larry cocker back, - ur freaking crazy pansies, that the worst thing univ of miami could ever do.....1. no recruits fans, etc.. will take us seriously in trying to rebuild this program, for the whole fire em hire em deal.....2. coker has put us in this situation, those kids out there our cokers recruits, you can tell look at them this not the u i know if ur truely a canes fan,shannon is doing the best he can to make em tough, mental, and physical, the recruits that are coming in are huge for us , and this program will turnaround, please i beg canes fans, give it time stay supportive, and LOYAL,were soooooooo use to winning it became a monster to us, now it seems like as fans we cant cope with losing, i really see progress, lets not bash each other, lets stay together... like the commercial WE MUST DEFEND THIS HOUSE!!!!

LISTEN PEOPLE WE STILL HAVE A SHOT @ ACC CHAMPIONSHIP, MAYBE EVEN A TITLE.........IF WE WIN ALL OUR GAMES, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE I WAS ANGRY THAT UM WAS BLOWN AWAY BY OAKHOMOS BUT SOMETHING HIT ME THERES NEWTOP 25 FOR THE PAST 2 -3WEEKS, AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE LIKE THAT FOR AWHILE, THE ACC IS WIDE OPEN ,COMPARE TO THOSE SCHOOLS I THINK WERE R IN BETER SHAPE THAN THEM, AS A FORMER PLAYER , BELEAVE WHAT I SAY THERES A WHOLE ALOT OF GAMES LEFT, FOR MIAMI TO REBOUND, TEXAS AM 3OT AGAINST FRESNO STATE YES FRESNO STATE, DUKE- THIS NOT BASKETBALL, GTECH, TOUGH ONE BUT HEY WE PLAY AT HOME, IM POSITIVE WE WILL WHEN THIS ONE ASLONG WE STOP T CHOICE, SHIT WE STOP THE OAKHOMOS RUNNING GAME DOWN WITH 4 GOOD RUNNING BACKS THAT EACH HAD CLOSE TO 100YRDS RUSHING BEFORE US, WITH A POOR PLAYED DEFENSE TODAY,UNC-THEY SUCK THEY LOST TO A PISS POOR TEAM TODAY,FSU-THEY DONT KNOW THERE ASSES BETWEEN THEIR LEGS, NC STATE-LOSS TO UCF, VIRGINIA-WHO ARE THEY, VTECH -TRAMPLED BYLSU, QB AND RB ORE IS SUCKING RIGHTNOW,BOSTON COLLEGE- THEY ALREADY LOSS TO A GARBAGE TEAM.. WE CAN DO IT AS A FORMER PLAYER IVE SEEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPENING........WERE STILL IN GOOOD SHAPE WE WILL RUN THE TABLE

WHY CANT PEOPLE STOP BLAMING THE COACHES FOR LOSING TO Oklahoma. The reality is Miami just does not have the talent it used to. Miami fans never cared about recruiting rankings...Look at how those top ten rankings do for us now. Miami has no quarterback, average running backs, no receivers that can catch and an oline that has not been good since 2001. On top of that the lack of talent and depth on defense was exposed yesterday. As Miami fans we must start to realize that 2001 is now a distant memory. Greg Schiano is the head coach at Rutgers, Butch is at UNC, Coach John Blake is with Butch at UNC and Miami is stuck with a coaching staff that has 0 BIG GAME EXPERIENCE. We better get used to having a 6-6 season because this team IS NOT GOOD.

To come to relization I agree with this dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
