« Gameday blog: UF 26, Canes 3 (F) | Main | TRR: '09 class impressed by effort in Swamp »

Quick postgame update

I'm trying to upload as much of the audio and video from the postgame scene as I can, but it takes awhile. I'll give you some quick observations and notes from what I gathered from the Canes after their 26-3 loss to the Gators.

> Coach Randy Shannon said he had no comment when asked what he thought of Urban Meyer's decision to kick a field goal late in the game -- and cover that 21-point spread. Shannon said it in a way that certainly made everyone believe he didn't like it.

> Shannon praised quarterback Robert Marve for not making any mistakes in his first start. Shannon said Miami's game plan was to run the football and to go into the fourth quarter with a shot at the victory. He said Marve gave them that chance. I'm sure many of you felt offensive coordinator Patrick Nix did not. Shannon said receivers dropped one too many balls.

> As far as the emotions after the game, Shannon told his players to be disappointed but not to point fingers. Offensive lineman Jason Fox was certainly one of the guys who wasn't happy. He said while UM did some good things he said losing never makes him feel good. Marve said he was happy with the way he played but the entire team didn't do what it was supposed to.

> I expect to hear some bad news regarding running back Javarris James in the morning. As the Canes waked off the field, JJ was wearing a boot on his left ankle. I know radio and ESPN reported an ankle injury. Shannon said he'd have to wait to hear the prognosis. Here's mine... get ready to see a lot of Graig Cooper and Derron Thomas. I'm not sure if JJ is out for the year -- but he's out.

> I think you'll see some changes in personnel the next time Miami lines up. Defensive tackle Marcus Forston started his first game in college Saturday and was solid. But I think there is no question we'll see more from from Sean Spence in the near future. Spence sacked Tebow and had an earth-shattering stick on Brandon James in the fourth quarter. He's too good not to see on the field more often.

That's all I got for now. Be sure to check out the audio interviews I'll be uploading throughout the night.
Feel free to give me your thoughts below. Like, are you accepting this as a moral victory.

What do you call a former 5-7 team that has been beat into a depression after getting annihilated by the best team in the SEC.

DUHHHHHH U OR AS MURPHY CALL'S IT, MIAMI

RS needs to address the safety position badly in my opinion. i thought i saw brandon harris playing back there a couple times. i think brandon can soon become a shut down corner. WHATS GOING ON WIT DVD? hes been getting played and with his speed that shouldn't happen. the d needs just minor upgrades and THE SOONER ARTHUR BROWN can get on the field the better in my opinion .

"THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH" - A Realisst

Duhhhhh U was fortunate enough to play as a independent, then in the Big Easy. They cleaned up during that time period as even a team from the WAC could. Look what's happened to U since you joined a conference with mediocre competition. U can't buy your way into a conference title game.

I can understand why your so mad after believing that U actually had a chance against the Gators, but look at the bright side, imagine what your life would be like if U played in the toughest conference in the nation. One with a conference title game for the better part of two decades.

3 POINTS? HAWAII PUT UP 10
U WOULD BE THE DUKE OF THE SEC

What's up with Javarris James???

WHY DIDNT LEE CHAMBERS OR SHAWNBRY MCNEAL OR DERON THOMAS RUN THE BALL MORE YESTERDAY??

COOPER IS NOT AN EVERY DOWN BACK HE IS TO SMALL

DO ANY OF YOU FIND IT WEIRD THAT MIAMI HASNT PURSUED JAMMAL BERRY OR LAMAR MILLER OR ANTWAN LOWERY AND FRANK TELIFORT EXTREMELY HARD???

THAT IS SOMETHING COKER WOULD HAVE DONE. OVERLOOK THE LOCAL KIDS AND GO OUT OF STATE. LOOK HOW WE ARE PAYING FOR IT NOW WITH HAVING SIGNED THE NUMBER ONE RATED LINEBACKER ARTHUR BROWN FROM OUTSIDE THE STATE WHO CANT SEE THE FIELD!!!!

SEAN SPENCE LOOKS TO ME LIKE THE NUMBER ONE RATED LINEBACKER IN THE COUNTRY!

Quick postgame update........ U Sux

4 qts. of offense & i'm going from 8-4 to 6-6. Another season of RS staredowns,dismal passing, scrn passes on 3rd & long, wishfull thinking deepballs, and who could forget all those dropped balls

Maybe by 2013 things will turn around and the ACC will have 5 of the Top 11 spots in the AP and the SEC will only have 1 team in the Top 25.

WHEN PIGS FLY OR HURRICANES WIN.....SAME TIME FRAME

When Coker's players are gone, the youth grows up, and Nix is fired, what will be left???
Randy Shannon.

You wonder why this team quit on him last year because he is a quitter himself. He quit last night. He never gave his team a chance. He punted the ball near the end instead of going for it. He never mixed anything up offensively in the second half and went for the win when his defense gave them a chance. He did not coach to win. He coached scared.

Imagine if you had a coach like Nick Saban. I know there is hurt feelings in South Florida but imagine if you had a coach like him. I think Miami could turn around. This story will play out similar to Ron Zook. Talent but no coaching. Hopefully Miami figures it out before it is too late.

What happened to the blow out? I thought this was going to be blood bath. UM wasn't even suppose to be able to compete with these gators.

Other than bragging rights this game means nothing. Miami will improve as the season goes on and the way it looks we could very well win the ACC.

For once in 25 years Florida can finally say they beat Miami.

It reminds me of this saying I once heard:

Even a blind squirrel when find a nut ever once in awhile. Way to struggle against a young UM team. I think UF should drop in the rankings for not blowing out UM like they said they would.

AtlantaCane, 23 points IS a blowout. Hate to break it to you, bud. Doesn't matter what the score was going into the fourth quarter. it matters what the score is after 60 minutes. Just another group of underachieving, untalented quitters. I'm sick of it. Just shut the damn program down already.

Atlanta,

actually the nation disagrees with you. The Gators moved up to #4

The Gators covered the 3 TD spread and the Canes are lucky it wasnt worse. If Harvin lines up 1 yard forward the game is 30-3. Not to mention how in the world did the ball go out of the back of the endzone when it looked like a TD instead of a safety?

The bottom line is both of these teams are from the state of Florida and obviously the state of Florida has talent. Lets root for the teams in our state to represent from here on out.

The Gators, Canes and Noles are enemies for 1 week and the rest should be supportive of the kids from the state of Florida.

SeriouslyAnswerThis....

Seriously, what were your expectations that leaves you so sure this team and RS will fail after game two of the season. Granted, Saban has had success in college, so its understandable that he would get the benefit of the doubt regarding his prospects at Alabama. On the other hand, every coach that has coached here and been successful was a nobody before he got here. Even the great Butch Davis (who everyone loves now) was often ridiculed for his game day coaching/planning.

What's your beef?

attn: gator fans
cokecanes and canesrule were just circumsized by tim teblow...let them run their mouths...THEY WILL NOT WIN "The Best Conference in the Nation" SEC ...they will take 4 loses like last yr. I am proud to be a CANE after the effort of 40 freshman last night vs. an "experienced team".

Canes played well for 3 quarters and they just should've took more shots at winning in the second half. UF should not feel great about beating a bunch of kids one year removed from high school.

Let's see how aggressive we come out in 2 weeks against TXAM. If we've got playmakers on defense that were allowed to play, then we should allow the playmakers on offense to do the same.

Keep believing, but its okay for us to keep the OC and RS on the accountability watch list. Go CANES!!!

"I think UF should drop in the rankings for not blowing out UM like they said they would." - Clueless AtlantaCane

We moved up a spot you idiot. The polls were released before you posted. Catch a clue. Sure your excuse will be that you did not know when they are normally released. How could you? And why would you know? The U hasn't been ranked in nearly two years.

However, now that you bring up rankings, we are all shocked that the sole ACC team in the Top 25, Wake Forest, did not drop out of the polls after needing a FG with eight seconds left in the game to pull off a 2 point win over SEC heavyweight Old Miss.

SEC = 5 OF THE TOP 11 TEAMS IN THE AP

"RS will fail after game two of the season. Granted, Saban has had success in college" - PeteRoc

U are right about Shannon failing miserably. The difference between U and other teams around the SEC is we rarely proote within and we land our first choice coach, the majority of whom have already been a head coach elsewhere.

U GET WHAT U PAY FOR - PROMOTE WITHIN

"I am proud to be a CANE after the effort of 40 freshman last night vs. an "experienced team" - DrtyCane

The experienced Gator team you mentioned had the youngest roster and the second youngest D in the nation in 2007. U only could say it was Tebow's fault that we lost 4 games. Let's see if U end up on the plus side of 500 during the regular season for the first time in 3 years.

BOWL INELIGIBLE IN 2008

"they will take 4 loses like last yr" - DuuuuurtyDirtCane

This coming from the same fan who predicted a win for Duhhhh U over the Mighty Gators.

SUCKER FOR BELIEVING

"Let's see how aggressive we come out in 2 weeks against TXAM" - ATLKane07

Ohhhh yeah Texas A&M, the new measuring stick of medicority for Duhhhh U on your proclaimed out-of-conference tough schedule.

So far this season, the powerhouse Aggies lost to the Red Wolves by 4 and beat the Lobos by 6.

WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & WHY! DID I MENTION WHO?

Do you have a life canesrule?

Posted by: canesrule | September 07, 2008 at 07:27 PM

Look at this dumbf*ck. Keyword "2007". Last year buddy. One year in college football can make a hell of a difference. You'll see when we're playing in a major bowl game next year (when our frosh have just that one year of experience)

Actually Canesfool I didn't see the ranking's I have a life outside of this blog. Life goes on tomorrow. I have other things to look forward to in my life other than talking s h it on some Miami blog with some twit.

I was stating what's called an opinion. Like I said I think UF should drop in the rankings for struggling the entire game against UM. I mean USC blew out UVA and there not half the team UF (sarcasm). Come on if Miami was so bad why did it take florida the entire game to finally put UM away.


Even a blind squirrel when find a nut ever once in awhile

First Off,

Shout out to Manny, Susan, and the entire Herald Staff the past week...awesome pregame coverage and amazing postgame...

As per how the gators will do the rest of the season...i honestly do not care...let them worry about it...they beat us..good for them...lets move on...

Our boys are young, but very talented...i am anxious to see how the coaches open up the playbook...if we fail to score points this year, especially against the rest of our mediocre competition....trust me, we average less than 25 a game, and Nix will be gone...its not because randy has to fire him, but its because that happens again and people will start talking about Randy's job...

Also, with James gone, I think we will start airing it out more...i am worried, however, because james could catch too...

A&M will be fun...I watched some of their game last week...if our defense comes out like that again, we might blow them out...

"if Miami was so bad why did it take florida the entire game to finally put UM away." AtlantaCane

BECAUSE IN THE SEC WE PLAY ALL 4 QUARTERS & DON'T GIVE UP AFTER 3

"Look at this dumbf*ck. Keyword "2007". - DUMBF*CKS, UUUUU has em!

5Rings notoriuos for his lack of reading comprehension. The only reason I mentioned the Gators youngest D and second youngest roster in the nation of 2007 is because U spent the entire off-season saying it was Tebow's fault we went 9-4. The Gators still reached a major bowl game you dubmf*ck.

By your own admission U won't be making a bowl game this year.

EXCUSE U, U HAVE ALL OF THEM

canesrule, who you picking in the BCS title game?

Here is a view from someone who actually attended the game, overall, very proud of the effort and the teamwork and Marve's leadership on the sideline (He was pumped up all the time and actively walking around and speaking to Nix and teammates when the defense was on the field):

1. Patrick Nix called a solid conservative game. We were not going to win a shoot out with Florida, not a lot of teams outside of Georgia will win shoot outs with them this year. Our offensive gameplan was right.

2. The failure on offense was blocking by our WR's and oline. Our young WR's didnt get one solid block in on the Florida secondary, nor were they able to separate from UF's secondary(Floridas secondary is a lot more talented and fast then many on this post are giving them respect for). UM's receivers could learn from UF's receivers, who are superior downfield blockers. Our O line was flat our beat up by a weaker UF D line. I was shocked that even with 4 or 5 men in the box, the Miami O line did a good job of pass blocking but does not look like it is a good run blocking line.
The only thing i will ask for is a couple more downfield shots (though i understand why we only did a couple this game) and a couple of reverses or misdirections with Cooper, Benjamin, Sheilds, Collier, or either A or D Johnson. I liked the quick slants and bubble screens if we get more downfield blocking.

3. Losing Javaris James hurt and was a huge difference in this game. He is the only true north south runner the canes have. The few third and short scenarios the canes could not make were a function of our oline getting beat and a function of running backs not going north and south. IF JJ IS GOING TO BE OUT A WHILE, THEN WE NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO GO NORTH AND SOUTH RUNNING.

4. Especially Marve, but this team has a much better sideline presence than last years team, everyone seems very into the game at all times.

5. Never, and i mean never should SEC refs be allowed to officiate a UF home game versus an out of conference opponent. They blew a few calls in this game, two that totally blew the game long momentum that Miami had.

6. Randy Phillips was a problem. He is slow and blows coverage. He let Carl Moore get way open for the catch, or non catch on the sideline. He also pass interfered with Harvin in the back of the end zone. Someone on this post said he was also in coverage for the first touchdown to hernandez, i didnt see it (i thought chavez grant was back there), but if he blew that, he was responsible for nearly all of UF's scores. We have too much young talent at safety...please keep randy phillips to be a cheerleader and on special teams.

7. Anthony Reddick played the best game of his career and is going to be a first round pick after this year, he is the next great safety to come out of UM. He has a nose for the ball and was all over the field against UF. I think he should have been Miamis player of the game.

8. Urban Meyer is classless as they come. After going after Georgia for running on the field last year during their game, he does the same thing by keeping his first team in and by kicking that field goal at the end. this is the first time i have ever seen florida play in the urban meyer era and not play the second qb for at least one play. tebow went all the way, and beleive me...the uf coaches were scared going into the fourth quarter. I hope Georgia and/or LSU kick his you know what this year.

9. I missed some of the dropped passes, but randy has enough receivers that he can bench someone for the rest of the game if they drop anything that hits their hands. I think he needs to put that rule in.

10. coach King deserves praise for this defensive gameplan. Awesome, disruptive, and executed well by our guys. Except for a few busts by a senior named above who shouldnt be on the field, an excellent defensive performance. Our D will be in the top ten in the nation this year.

11. Special teams coverage and returners need to watch what UF does and mimick that. Our special teams helped UF win the game. Except for the shanked first punt, strong game by bosher. UF had excellent punt and kick coverage and blocking.

12. Overall proud of the team. A good block to build from. coach shannon is the answer and anyone who says he didnt show emotion did not seem him in the refs face after the blown calls.

a couple questions for anyone who may know:

why was J mckenzie not dressed, wearing his jersey on the sideline, and i saw him after the game walking around UF's campus with some people?

how many true freshmen traveled and played?

was the moore catch actually a catch? even if it was, since it was called incomplete, was there indisputable evidence to show elsewise?

how bad is JJ hurt?

any other injuries from the game?

5Rings notoriuos for his lack of reading comprehension. The only reason I mentioned the Gators youngest D and second youngest roster in the nation of 2007 is because U spent the entire off-season saying it was Tebow's fault we went 9-4. The Gators still reached a major bowl game you dubmf*ck.

EXCUSE U, U HAVE ALL OF THEM

Posted by: canesrule | September 07, 2008 at 08:59 PM

I dont know who your refering to saying "U" said it was tebows fault you went 9-4, cuz if your asking me it was tebows fault that you WON 9 games, hes the backbone of your team no doubt.And I wouldnt brag about making a bowl game in which you lost.

And you all sure have excuses too, so it goes both ways. Hence every argument is 'well we only have 2 championships cuz we play in the sec' which im so sick of hearing about conference superiority, just like your sick of hearing about our past.

Now that the game is done with why dont you stay the f*ck over on your blogs? You still have curiousity of whats goin on in the Canes world? Or do you really get off on arguing with Canes fans? Cant you tell you aren't gonna win an argument with us? You should probably give up and get a life.

Just a thought. Miami played well last night and will only get better. Florida is at best third or fourth best in the SEC. Will the Chik-fil-A Bowl look to take the two in a rematch come December 31?

"They blew a few calls in this game, two that totally blew the game long momentum that Miami had." - Ryan

As predicted EXCUSE U is in full effect. OSU for the past 6 years, and now this game for at least the next 5 years.

Nothing to do with the whoppng 140 total yards of offense you put together.

U LOST, GET OVER IT.

When we play Fla. in 2013, Do they come to us or we play in Gainsville ? Nix needs to go back and watch some old 80's game tapes. When teams put 8-9 in the box. That's when we would go deep, especially on 1st and 10. That's how you loosing up the defense. Maybe Young should coach the offense ( joking) .Nix never changed his play calling. He's on a short leash. Shannon needs to hold him accountable for calling those same 4 plays.

5. Never, and I mean never should SEC refs be allowed to officiate a UF home game versus an out of conference opponent. They blew a few calls in this game, two that totally blew the game long momentum that Miami had.

You know I have to agree. I recorded the game on my computer so that I could edit it with windows movie maker and put it on Youtube. After going through all the video again I have to say penalties hurt us in the long run last night. That and the bad out of bounds call that was overturned. That play was complete bullsh it. I honestly believe that game would have ended 3 to 9 or we could have come away with a win.

"im so sick of hearing about conference superiority" - 5Rings if I counted right

Nothing like your biased opinion over the known facts. Wake up, this season is played in 2008, not the 1980's. Eject your beta max tape of when U were last relevant.

Currently 5 SEC teams hold spots in the Top 11 of the AP. Meanwhile the ACC weaklings have 1 team in the Top 25 and they needed a last second FG to pull off the W against Ole Miss. I did not stutter I said Old Miss. If the game was only 3 Quarters long as U prefer, the Rebels would have won and there would likely be no ACC teams in the Top 25.

When was the last time U were even ranked?

I HATE TO TELL U I TOLD U SO

"I honestly believe that game would have ended 3 to 9 or we could have come away with a win." - AtlantaCane

Hard to win when the score is 3 - 9 and you don't cross the 50 one time in the entire second half.

140 YARDS? EVEN HAWAII PUT UP 241

The University of Morons. Ranked #1 in whining and excuse-making. I bet the ACC regrets, on a daily basis, having ever courted and accepted your sorry butts into their conference. You all are an embarrassment. A joke. Just do the world a favor and disband.

Cansrule why do you like riding Miami's c o c k so much honestly stop sweating UM balls. UF won nobody cares anymore that game was over last night. Now UM moves on to playing a few conf games which is where it really matters.

2013 at dolphins stadium unless UF buys its way out of playing because of the "strength" of the SEC(which is very probable). speaking of excuses canesrule, isnt UF using the SEC as an excuse to not play any non conference road games outside of FLa (when did they last play one?)

just curious canesrule...do you put up any original thoughts or do you just cut and paste others thoughts and ideas and respond to them? and additionally, whoever it is who has you on their payroll to post here, i hope you are making some good money to spend your time only refuting the thoughts of others on here.

Gotta love Duhhhhh U's keen insight......

2. "UM's receivers could learn from UF's receivers, who are superior downfield blockers."

11. "Special teams coverage and returners need to watch what UF does and mimick that."

U really missed the boat on copying the Gators which is why U won't be relevant until 2013 at the earliest. U bypassed the most important thing U could have learned on day one which is why U will be bowl ineligible two years straight.......

HIRE YOUR 1st CHOICE COACH

Once again your just a c o ck sucker that can't get any attention else where in life. No one cares about your opinion. Is that your problem. Your sh it is old and tired go swallow a knife.

"Now UM moves on to playing a few conf games which is where it really matters." - AtlantaCane

Look at your schedule......the mighty Aggies that Duhhhhh U is bragging about being a tough out of conferece opponent is up next.

4 point losers to the Red Wolves and 6 point winners over the Lobos.

CHARLESTON SOUTHERN COULD STICK IT TO A&M

9 games will be played in Florida the only three UF has to leave for is UT, Arkansas and Vandy. What a load of crap.

Canesrule:

The UF game is over, why are you still on this blog? Your act is tired and old.

"isnt UF using the SEC as an excuse to not play any non conference road games outside of FL" - Ryan Seacrest

No you idiot, from day one the reasoning has been the truth, it is financial business decision. Look no further than the facts, I know fans of Duhhhhh U tend not to.

The Gators have one of a handful of atheltic departments in the entire country that is in the black. We have premier facilities for 90,000+ and the just opened the Gateway of Champions, which you may have noticed if you actually attended the game in person.

Duhhhhh U played in the dismembered Orange Bowl with no upgrades for the last 20+ years, demolished their "on-campus" stadium, and is now leasing field space from another team.

Your AD sank your ship and hand delivered a budget so deep in the red that that he made Enron look like a minor miscalculation. The half of the stadiums U do fill up are of little to no help.

But I understand.......

U WOULD RATHER BUS IT 30+ MILES TO HOME GAMES

"9 games will be played in Florida the only three UF has to leave for is UT, Arkansas and Vandy. What a load of crap" - AtlantaCane

Sorry I can't help U are stupid enough to schedule the likes of bottom tier teams like Texas A&M away from home.

Guess it's to get U more exposure. I'm still waiting for a sincere thank you from Duhhhh U to UF for getting their team on national television once this season.

NO RESPECT & NO THANKS FROM EXCUSE U

"Your act is tired and old." - Canesjunkie

So are non-winning regular season records, not attending bowl games, and not being ranked.

U HAVEN'T GOTTEN TIRED OF THAT

Hey Canesrule I got somethin for you...
Just like you are SO fu*kin proud of the SEC, we got somethin were proud of that you cant fu*kin touch.

A bulletin I posted earlier:
If your ultimate goal is to play pro ball and make lots of money doing it, then make the pro bowl and eventually get elected into the hall of fame, go to THA U!

We may not have had the best seasons lately but damn NOBODY can deny our tradition, week in and week out, UM alumni tear up the NFL. Just another day in the office. And how about winslow throwin up the U after scoring, were family, its in our blood.

"If your a fantasy football fanatic, I suggest you draft a roster strictly of Canes, haha!" - 5 Ear Rings, UUUUU got em?

I would lose track of the stats that Gators would rack up against mediocre teams if we played in the inferior Big Easy or ACC. How about looking at the truth, the number of SEC players in the NFL.

EXCUSE U STILL TRYING TO VALIDATE THEIR PROGRAM

WOW!, we have had a gaytor fan on OUR blog for appox. 12 hours now. Im sure he took a couple breaks to play with himself while staring at his tebow poster along with the occasional meals his mother cooks him along the way. You may wanna try gettin a gf or somethin dude. Im startin to think your a lil envious of the canes, I dont care what you say. If you have an explanation of why you've been on here 12 hours, please explain, otherwise Im gonna start thinkin your a fan.

Speaking of loads of crap....after U scheduled feather wieght A&M, I was just curious as to when U actually won on decent road game.

Duhhhhh U's last road win against a top 25 team came in against No. 3 Virginia Tech on Nov. 5, 2005.

NEARLY 3 YEARS AND COUNTING
