McCarthy, Moncur likely done for the year

Just got back home from the longest and most interesting Randy Shannon Sunday press conference I've ever attended and unfortunately do not have good news to report.

Colin_mccarthyLinebacker Colin McCarthy, who was a late scratch for Saturday's game against the Seminoles, is done for the season according to Shannon. And defensive end Eric Moncur, who left Saturday's game in the second quarter with a leg injury, could be too.

"Colin is done for the season. He won't be playing anymore," said Shannon, who said McCarthy's injury was related to his shoulder, the same one he injured in high school. "Eric Moncur, fellas, I don't know. I don't know if he'll make it back. After halftime, he didn't come back dressed. Those guys, I don't know their status. I'll let you guys know Tuesday or Monday, but it didn't look very good for Eric Moncur."

"I talked to [Eric] a little bit and I told him I love you to death, but I can't do this to you. We can't do this to you. You can't do this to yourself. You just got to shut it down. We'll send you to a specialist. But right now you're not going to be able to help us this season."

Eric_moncurConsider it a huge blow to this Miami defense, which was torched by Florida State for 281 yards rushing and four touchdowns Saturday in the 41-39 loss at Dolphin Stadium. Shannon said the injuries mean freshmen will have to step up. Saturday, Sean Spence got the start in place of McCarthy at weakside linebacker alongside Glenn Cook and Daryl Sharpton. Sunday, Shannon said the team will have to bring Arthur Brown along as well as Kylan Robinson and Jordan Futch. That trio has a combined four tackles this season. Spence led UM Saturday with 10 tackles and an interception.

On the defensive line, Shannon pointed to Adewale Ojomo, Marcus Robinson and Andrew Smith to have to step up and fill Moncur's shoes. Ojomo recovered a fumble Saturday and had three tackles and started the opener in Moncur's place.

"You don't expect these things, but you got to your mind ready for it," Shannon said. "I've learned to be prepared instead of just guessing. Guys got to play -- that's why they came here. Coaches got to get these guys ready in some form or fashion."

> I'll have more for you later from Randy's press conference, which lasted a half hour longer than usual. He even got a pen and started drawing up his depth chart on the dry erase board for us today and talked at length about his vision for this program. But for now, here are some quick, short notes.

> Shannon said it was receiver Sam Shields who made the costliest mistake in Saturday's game. Shields was flagged for an illegal substitution penalty when he came in on a formation he doesn't even play on when Miami had the ball on Florida State's 4-yard line midway through the fourth quarter. The Hurricanes settled for a field goal when they couldn't punch it in the end zone. Shannon said he felt that it was turning point in the game. "I thought definitely we were going to score," Shannon said. "We score, we go up and now Florida State has a different mentality. When your trying to come back in the game, that was the biggest play. Now, you got the whole momentum and now Florida State is [panicking]. That really hurt us."

"I have no idea [why Sam ran out on the field]," Shannon said. "He's not even in that personnel group, first team, second team or third team. That's what had everybody baffled."

> Shannon said he's optimistic Javarris James will be able to play next week. He said James will have to work on inside running drills this week and prove he can cut on his injured ankle.

> Despite the loss, Shannon said he was very proud of the fight Miami showed by rallying in the fourth quarter.

YOU CAN'T SPELL "GAYTOR BOWL" WITHOUT:
THIS HEISMAN QUARTERBACK WILL LOSE ANOTHER 4 GAMES, AND DISAPPOINT THE ENTIRE GATOR NATION AGAIN, BUT IT WILL NOT BE THEIR FAULT BECAUSE THEY PLAY IN THE SEC

I'll take college football for 200, Alex!

They won their 1st SEC Title in 1983, only to have it stripped for serious recruiting violations.

WHO ARE THE FLORIDA GAYTORS?

CORRECT

Go 'canes!!

I'll take college football for 400, Alex!

This SEC school joined the conference in 1938, and then went on to win their FIRST SEC Title in 1991, 53 years (Is that a typo?) later!

WHO ARE THE FLORIDA GAYTORS?

CORRECT

Go 'canes!

"Sarasota Cane" is canesrule 9 ships. One of those evil multiple name posters.

Did that butt plug above actually post his name as "Canes Dominate !!" ???
What century are you living in Einstein. Not this one.

Art Kehoe wouldn't even take a position at lowly Miami.

Sarasota cane is rivaled only by 86Cane when it comes to being a complete moron.

I'll take college football for 600, Alex!

i'm reposting this to make sure everyone knows the truth bout israel... hopefully he will come out of the closet... c'mon queen israel u'll feel better after..

Ooooops, I meant to say b__ch. It's kind of hard to type with canesrules mom under me desk..

The real reason Israel is trying to get Jacory to transfer is because he is madly in love with Robert Marve...

Israel, was just calling it how it is. Manny Navarro has expressed his "misinformed" opinions on this blog before and everyone was defending him. Israel is on the money about QB position at UM. When is Cannon Smith going to play? Randy Shannon will pick Marve over Harris next year. Harris should have gone to program where he would have been premiere player. Like Oregon, on top of it, somewhere where they have a coach and can win. She(RS) will never get the job done.

UallHypocrites:

Marve should be the one going somewhere else. No quarterback should be taken out of the game when he is playing good(North Carolina game). That decision messed up our whole season.

ISRAEL'S FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING ON AROUND THE HORN....

THE MAKE UP

Bitter, hateful, and jealous!!

COME ON GAYTORS, GET UP AND GO

Go 'canes!

Does anyone still want 1-4 Rutger coach Schiano?

Seems to me all you Randy haters wanted Schiano real bad. He's doing a fine job, Not!!!!

Da U!

SORRY A S S FSU hung TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY ONE YARDS ON YOUR SORRY D

Antone Smith is SORRY. He torched you

Duhwho's defense SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS...bad.

Duke has you guys worried. They hung around till the 4th quarter last year and are better this year.


Fire that joke of a coach you have. He's clueless on the sideline.

CLUELESS

We must have U worried The ghost of Art Kehoe(Bob) or U wouldn't be here!!!!

Got to go, my boys are coming over for a tea party.

Kisses Kisses

oh yeah everyone is worried about the bottom dwelling miami hurricanes. That lame crowd. That lame coaching staff. Your overrated recruits. All very intimidating. You don't worry Virginia. You don't worry BC. You don't worry FSU. You don't worry UF. You don't worry NC

YOU WORRY NO ONE its just enjoyable to make fun of you idiots.

ACC DOORMATS

Clearly Antone Smith was very worried.

BWAHAHAHAAA

How many years has it been since you were in the top 25?


UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUck !!!!!

FORTY EIGHT TO NOTHING in your home finale at the storied orange bowl.

players quit on RS. He should be leading boy scouts, not football teams.

He is so far over his head it's laughable.

48-0 will forever be on the record books. FIU played the last good game at your house you fools. That's flat out sad.

Hire your 4th choice coach and aspire to 4th place in the ACC coastal. Oh sorry, you're not even the fourth team in the COASTAL division

UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK.....bad

DuhWho fans don't even talk about special teams. Take away Bosher and you have the worst ST's in ALL of D-1

Shannon doesn't have a clue on how to run special teams. That is your new reality that will remain as long as he is your HC.

Good luck with that guy......LOSERS

Who will your next loss be to? UCF..probably...Duke? could be


your just flat out bad but still talk crap like you have a good team.

HOMER MORONS..

I think we are witnessing the first virtual nervous break down on our blog!! This is awesome! The word "loser" just seems so inadequate for this guy!

Are the drugs psychotrophic, or do you think he is on stimulants?

I'M STAYING FOR THE FINALE

Go 'canes!

Maybe I overslept that day, but did we ever offer Kehoe the head coaches job? Didn't we fire him? Right or wrong, I'm pretty sure we washed our hands of him when Coker was here.

Sorry Canesrule!

LATCHKEY KIDS, WHERE'S DANNY ROLLING WHEN YOU REALLY NEED HIM

Go 'canes!

HA HA, MY LAST POST WAS AT 420..

I'm sick of you suckers coming on here, talking all this sh*it about the University of Miami football team. Where were you all when we were running through college football? Racking up 5 national championships. You all were quiet as abused children back then, because you all wanted nothing to do with us. Scared to open your mouths because you did'nt want to get hit.

Don't worry,keep talking, pretty soon you are going to mess around and wake us up with all of this hatred. When we do get up, we won't forget nor will we forgive!

Keep Talk'n!

sarasota cane(aka canesrule tosses 9 salads)shows what a complete classless piece of shyte he is by mentioning Danny Rolling. Rolling murdered students at UF. Let's try this. Bryan Pata was a scumbag who deserved to get a slug in the head. Same vein you moron. S u c K on that.

How long are you going to use different city cane names you loser? You don't live in Sarasota. Don't use sarasota you flaming loser.

I don't live in Sarasota? Tell that to the property appraiser!

COMPLETE LOSER

Go 'canes!!
