Canes getting healthy

Randy Shannon told reporters during his press conference this morning he has no his idea and no timetable for when his young offense will start clicking and improve on its current 110th national ranking. Canes fans can at least take solace in this -- at least the offense is getting healthier.

Shannon said Tuesday he expects to get two key starters back on offense this week -- running back Javarris James and starting right tackle Reggie Youngblood. James, who suffered a high ankle sprain after two plays against Florida, will need to prove he make cuts on his high left ankle sprain this week in practice. But Shannon sounded optimistic James will play at Duke Saturday.

As for Youngblood, his return is somewhat of a surprise. Last week, Shannon told reporters he thought the senior would miss the rest of the year. Tuesday, Shannon said Youngblood told him "he wants to give it a go."
The return of James and Youngblood as well as reserve Chris Barney, who was injured in fall camp and returned for a series last Saturday, should give a struggling offense a much needed boost. Shannon said the return of James will give UM the tough inside runner they haven't had the past month.

REDNECK

Go slap somebody around tough guy. You have to be the biggest troll I've ever seen here.

Well than my FIRST POST was right, you're just a DUMB kid with NOTHING better to do.

Damn, I'm glad you don't have kids. So I guess if someone hits your kid in the head at the game , you would just sit their? WOW, you're MORE RED than I thought. You're response would be, "Aww hell man, gimme a beer, and hit him again, he's head thick as a brick anyway'. You children enjoy your day, and remember to clean your rooms up, and please for the love of God, get the roadburns out of your underwear, because Mommies tired. AWWwwwwwwwwwwwww poor babies

Go shoot somebody Colonel Mustard. Or go yell at some dumb person in traffic. Or go give the stink eye to some unsuspecting clerk at Wal-Mart you REDNECK. Or go throw "sheet" on your boss. Or just go die in a fiery auto crash you self important turd.

Oh no. Someone is using my alias. Dang it!

Hey, imposter "Cane360" wannabe! Just like UF, a wanna be!!!

And no, I did not take the bait num num. It's called copy and paste. Type it out?!? That is so '90s. LOL

Just name this one as a throw away year as well. I don't think anybody knew how bad this team is, but it is becoming more and more of a reality

What a child.

My son is a starting right guard and is the tougher than nails. No I wouldn't go kick some "sheet" throwers arse. He'd go do it himself. I'd just videotape it and sell it to the news you fool. Why don't you and Colonel Mustard go have a cage match and get out some of your anger.

REDNECK DUO

It's nice to know I have an admirer. I love followers, pretenders, fakers, no lives, imbussels, wanna bes, and swamp lizards.

Especially people with ID-10-T desease.

Oh, no. He's so smart. He "baited" me into this conversation. Dang, he fooled me.

It would seem someone is desperate for a friend. Ahhhh, how sweet! Need a friend? Poor guy.

I am glad we can be your pretend friend. Would you like to talk football?

Tell me why UF is all of a sudden back in the mix when they beat a pathetic LSwho team with wins against North Texas, Troy and App State?

Why did Ole Miss man handle UF's defense? How did Ole Miss run 80 yarders in the Swamp I might add?

Robert Marve is the flea market version of me...

Robert Marve is the ghost of Ryan Collins and Ryan Clement re-incarnated.

There is solid nucleus here at THE U. I love all the players and coaches except one. I just think that Nix is going to hold us back from ever being a true championship team again. Shannon is a great recruiter and, like most of us, bleeds green. He may not be the best game manager but he's exactly what we need here. I just can't say the same about Nix.

Randy calls out Kehoe's steamer at noon presser,

UCG SUCKS !!!

Congarts DUHUUUUU. Third place in the state by a thread. Sorry asss UCF damn near took it to your sorry team. USF would TOOl U. Duke will SMOKE U.
Your coach is a babbling idiot and U will s u k as long as he is your coach. You pay your coaches scraps and will be stuck with marble mouf forever. Welcome to your new spot at the bottom of the sorry ACC.

U ARE DEAD LAST IN THE SORRY ACC..get used to it. You'll be there for a long time. Randy will never raise you out of that mess you're in. Hopefully you sign that loser to a long term so you keep sucking forever. Your stuck between a rock and a hard place because if you can him you'll just have to go out and hire a new B-list coach. Hell, Randy isn't even a B-lister.

Hire your4th choice coach from within and get what U pay for.

Stupid fools think that moron is going to save you

recruiting...blah blah blah...;HE S U C K S Its a shame that he is clueless about how to actually develop the talent you have.

5-7 will look pretty good this year you sorry losers.

Post Duke: 3-4

If I read another post about how it's not Shannon's fault, and that Coker left him with nothing, or that we should give him time since the team is so young I am going to puke. Take a look at the recruiting rankings for the last few years:

Year Ranking (Rivals)
2004 4th Coker
2005 7th Coker
2006 14th (Coker out/Randy in)
2007 19th Randy
2008 5th Randy

Miami's recruiting rankings over the last 5 years (includes RS Freshman) have only been matched by a few of the top teams. With recruiting like that there is no excuse for last year and this year's performance. The problem is not that "the team is young", the problem is that the coaches never developed the players they had. Every year the coaches say the next group coming in will make the difference. I expect that to continue as long as this coaching staff is in place. So if you ever get tired of talking about having a young team, maybe we need to find someone that can actually develop the players we have.

With all due respect to my fellow Hurricane fans, we need to just cut our ties with Patrcik Nix once the season's over and try to get June Jones away from SMU to coach our offense because of the talent we do have on our team, I beleive June's scheme will fit us way better than the s**t I'm seeing waht's coming from Patrick's playcalling.

It's gonna take some cash to get a good OC, or we will get another up and coming OC ( first year). Need to go back to the Pro-style offense. Nix can always go to NCAA 09 and get some plays from the playbook.
