UM-Wake Forest thoughts

It wasn't pretty. It wasn't a dominant performance. But Saturday's 16-10 win against Wake Forest at Dolphin Stadium was the third consecutive victory for this young University of Miami football team, which is starting put the struggles this program has endured over the last three to four years in the rear-view mirror.

Last week, it was backup quarterback Jacory Harris who keyed UM's turnaround against Duke. This week, it was the other side of the quarterback partnership who ignited the Canes, starter Robert Marve. The red-shirt freshman finally got the offense going in the third quarter with a 48-yard run that setup the go-ahead touchdown. UM's defense, which was shredded on the ground to the tune of 116 yards in the first quarter, buckled down in the second half and didn't allow Wake to move the football with regularity anymore. Meanwhile, kicker Matt Bosher (with the exception of one hiccup) had an exceptional day. It all added up to a third straight victory for the Canes, who beat an experienced team that has won plenty in this conference the past several seasons.

Robert_marve> PLAY OF THE GAME: Marve's 48-yard third quarter run. Until he faked the handoff to Graig Cooper, turned the corner, juked a defensive back and raced up field, Wake Forest had basically kept the Canes in check. Marve's long run setup his own 1-yard plunge and go-ahead touchdown with 8:03 to play in the third quarter.

> IT WAS OVER WHEN: With UM leading 16-10 and trying to run out the clock, Marve scrambled on third and 10 and found Thearon Collier open downfield for a 30-yard gain to midfield. All UM had to do was pick up one more first down to run out the clock.

GAME BALLS
Offense - QB Robert Marve:
For all the struggles he had coming into this game, Marve rebounded by making the play of the game, the clincher and scoring UM's only touchdown. He finished 11 of 20 for 153 yards and ran for 56 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Honorable mention: WR Travis Benjamin. The Blur led the Canes with 72 yards receiving on four catches and his 52-yard catch in the first half setup UM's first field goal. He also hauled in a key third down pass in the second half along the sideline.

Defense - DL Adewale Ojomo: The redshirt freshmen is starting to fill in nicely for the Adewale_ojomoinjured Eric Moncur. Last week against Duke, he had UM's only sack. Saturday against Wake, he had six tackles, 1.5 sacks and an important forced fumble which led to UM's last field goal. He also shared a huge sack in the first half when Wake Forest was driving and he stopped their drive at the UM 40 by bringing down Riley Skinner on fourth down. Honorable mention: LB Romeo Davis. Romeo hadn't played much in a while, but was a key cog in stopping the run in the second half for the Canes. He finished with five tackles and made some punishing tackles as Wake tried to run the football up the gut.

Special Teams - K Matt Bosher:Yes, he shanked a punt in the fourth quarter and averaged only 36 yards a punt, but he made all the kicks he had to -- including a career long 52-yard field goal which had yards to spare. Bosher finished 3-of-3 on field goal attempts and made his extra point. ]

A FEW MORE THOUGHTS...
> Shannon has shown himself to be quite the gambler this season. Today, it didn't payoff. But I liked the chances he took. After UM scored to make it 13-10, he called for an onside kick and Bosher delivered a beauty. UM just didn't recover it even though it should have. He also decided to go for it on fourth down twice. The Canes couldn't convert.

> Sam Shields is starting to make plays for this team again. Not only did he make a nice catch and run in the third quarter, but he likely had the second biggest play of the game on the second half kickoff. Shields took a backwards pitch from Travis Benjamin and raced up field to the Wake Forest 45. He then took a shot on the sideline that drew an extra 15 yards to give UM great field position and to give the Canes a sense of momentum.

> After getting just 10 combined carries last week at Duke, Javarris James and Graig Cooper got eight more chances Saturday, but didn't produce a whole lot. The duo finished with a combined 41 yards and couldn't generate enough movement.

> What also impressed me a ton today was how physical UM played after getting whipped in the first quarter at the line of scrimmage. Wake Forest was the older, more experienced team. Yet, it was Miami that was handing out the licks in the second half. Laron Byrd had a catch where he took a shot, bounced off it and left linebacker Alton Curry on the grass writhing in pain. So much for the idea Miami was weak in the weight room. They were much more physical than team, older and more experienced than them.

canes rule and preston parker: These are the facts boys:

the "vaunted" and "feared" SEC has played the ACC 6 times so far. And It's 3-3. ESPN's Chris Myers and Reece Davis, and hater Herbstreit wet themselves when they talk about the SEC, but neither pointed out that Duke beat Vandy. Yes, Duke. Nor much was said that Auburn, who nearly beat LSU, lost to West Va. ANd finally, let me point out, that the SEC has more teams with losing records than the ACC. check it out yourselves! Fine, the SEC has 3 teams on the top that are top 10 teams, but I'll tell you, the top ACC teams (whichever they may be) can play with ANY body, ANY time. No, it's not Clemson.

UM beat a good Wake team. A wake team that beat Ole Miss, who beat UF at the swamp. let us not forget that. Whether it was coaching, or an injured Riley Skinner, who knows, but UM beat them. Fair and square. we need to get our running game going. No excuse. Coop and JJ have to get the ball at least 25 times or more. Coop: Hit the friggin hole! Stop dancing around! Find the hole, trust it, hit it, even if its for four yards!Coaches need to see that and should stop throwing bombs on first down. Why? 2nd and ten that's why. Thenits all down hill from there! We need to do better on FIRST DOWN!

Finally, either the Big 12 is better than we think, or their defenses are worse than we think: I mean, the passing,a nd scoring and the qb and wr play of Texas Tech, Texas, and Oklahoma are incredible. Probably unstoppable! Can't see anybody beating Texas. Just can't see it.

Phew, we won. Recorded the game yesterday since I was out of town and got up early to watch it on pins and needles. - a close one, but it was very impressive to see how the Canes managed to muscle out the win. This is a game they might have lost a couple months ago.

If they can beat WF (check) they can beat Virginia or anyone else. Here's hoping that consistency is a sign of a maturing team and we win the rest out (check check check check?) and get a chance at a prime bowl game that sets us up for our (don't doubt it) national championship next year.

Listening to Coker's lack of insightful commentary on ESPNU and his generally indifferent demeanor was frightful. THat guy was or leader? The other announcer, though, made a nice point: Miami getting a bowl game is crucial because it gives our young team another 20 days of practice, and another month together as a team.

I do think that the team plays better with Harris at QB, but when Marve is winning, there's no complaints here. Here's to an ugly but meaningful win. And let's get some bloody revenge next week.

'm kinda fired up - i was at the game yesterday and i remember sam shields getting hit late (after the kick return)...but i just had a chance to watch some of the game on my DVR.

i watched in slow motion about 10 times...#76 Joe Birdsong...on the sidelines...lower his shoulder and lay sam shields out at the end of the play.

it was #35 who got the late hit penalty, and he did deserve it - but #76, what he did after that, should warrant a multiple game suspension by the NCAA.

any chance they'll do anything?

I am shocked that UM beat Wake. I had this game as a loss when I saw their scheduled, but I had them beating UNC. So I guess it balances out.

I must say it is a pleasant surprise.

The remaining games on their will get tougher, but Miami has to finish.

The goal is not about wins and losses, it is about getting better each week...If they can do that, Miami will be fine.

I think everyone thinks way too much of James and Cooper. I think our running game is weak because they're just not that good. James had one above average year his freshman year, where he probably stood out because everyone else stunk. Cooper has been decent he entire time here, but he's only a sophomore so let's let him grow. But I'm tired of Cooper taking the ball on 3rd and 3 and starting to put moves on defenders that are 6 yards down the field. Run downhill big guy...

Here's how much Randy Shannon thinks of our current running backs...Bryce Brown, Lamar Miller, Mike James next year, Eduardo Clement and Jakari Gore in 2010. That's 5 top rated running back recruits in the next 2 years! To me, that looks an aweful lot like the confidence Shannon had in Sam Shields and Ryan Hill at wide receiver last year.

I have changed my mind. This Canes team is garbage.
We are overblowing a team in Wake who is just downright pathetic. I mean Ole Miss went into Wake and just about beat them. It took a long field goal as time expired to beat Ole Miss at home.
Now we play the most boring football game against a beat down team who has basically quit like we did last year, and we do it at our house.
We are just lucky our schedule is so weak and we played the ranked opponents already who we lost to.
Anyway, a win is a win but this team is a long way away.

Sarasota,
I don't think anyone is claiming Miami to be good just yet. And of course they are at best mediocre but its nice to get a win against a Sr. laden well coached team. And it actually looks there is some improvement which is all I was hoping to see from the very young Canes team this season.
And you keep blasting a team for "barely" beating Ole Miss. Didn't Ole Miss just recently hand the mighty Gators their only loss on the season? Lesson learning is winning them all isn't easy.

Excuse my poor grammar from above: Lesson learned.

Yahhhhoooo! We have a chance at having a chance of playing for a chance to obtain a winning regular season record for the first time in three years.

1 ACC Team now ranked in the Top 25

Posted by: canesrule | October 25, 2008 at 11:56 PM


Wrong!!!!

Now only 4 SEC teams ranked in the AP Top 25

And 3 ACC teams ranked in the AP Top 25

SEC - Over rated and falling out of the rankings!

ACC - Rising in the rankings!

Manny,
Is Randy Phillips coming back this year?

Watching this Dolphins game I dont know what offense is worse:

The Canes offense or the Dolphins offense.

Two teams get on the field. One is going to win and the other is going to lose. Both are trying to win.

Shouldn't every TRUE Canes fan be praising our team for winning no matter who the other team is or how pretty the W was.

I'm sick of reading negative comments towards a team that wins a game.

With that said, I'll say this to any of the guys on the team that might read my comment.

Good job guys. You played hard and won the game.
You are a young team and anytime you win it is a good day. Wake would like to be in your shoes right now, but you didn't let them have that satisfaction. Celebrate this victory and keep building on these winning ways. Your TRUE fans are behind you 100%!!!!

Canes, Stick with the present, strive for the future, and get over the past.

SEC all day, every day until something new actually happens.

Canes, Stick with the present, strive for the future, and get over the past.

SEC all day, every day until something new actually happens.

Eh, SEC I guess has an edge overall over the ACC. But declaring "SEC all day, every day" as if it is the best conference in CFB is just laughable. I mean, I know ESPN takes every chance it can to blow Tebow and Florida, but the realists out there realize it's highly over-rated and Florida isn't so hot after all. Maybe not as over-rated as the Big10, but still a joke when compared to the Big12.

DID U FORGET HOW UR QBS THREW 5 INTS. AGAINST THIS SAME WAKE TEAM WE JUST BEAT. U LOST 9-3 .... LOL whoa and i still havenit figured out why most of ur team was suspended the first 3 games of the year.

I am back from my vacation, and I am ready to do battle little boy's!! NONE of the Sarasota 'canes posts over the last several days are real! If there is anything negative said about the 'canes by Sarasota 'cane, then it is none other than our own Cokecane/canesrule!! Get ready boys, you just cost your silly Gator Clause blog their peace and serenity!

"F"ING LOSERS

Go 'canes!!

???????????? this aint no damn sarasota cane

Nice try fake Sarasota!!

Go 'canes

He He

Go 'canes!

The Canes are going to make a BOWL GAME THIS YEAR!!!!
I am soooooo pumped up!
Do you guys think we will be going to Idaho this year? That would be swell! We had such fun in Idaho two years ago.
Maybe we could play Navy.

The Canes vs Navy now that would be a good game

I dont understand though how we went from ESPNU to not being televised at all next week after a BIGGGGG win? Now we have to fork over Pay Per View money to watch this team?

Wake's offense is currently ranked 100 out of 119

The Canes offensive powerhouse is ranked 99 out of 119

Maybe your bowl game will be televised since none of your regular season games are.

Guys come on, I hardly ever say anything bad about the Canes. This is really me. Its Sarasota'cane. Come on guys. Believe me.

I know the Canes aren't great but I rarely say anything bad. I only want positive energy on the Canes blogs.

AZCane, I will take you up on the hot dog thing. It sounds really good. MMMMMMM Hot dogs and Canes football! Sounds realllllly good.

Sarasota,

you are such a joke. Do all canes fans a favor and quit posting on here.

Just ask serious questions or talk about us winning the ACC this year and the National Title next year.

We can take Penn State. Did you see them last night? They arent that good. They are big and slow.

We can have Marve run all over them. Then we can bring in Jacory, mess up the offensive rhythm, and have him take a sack followed by a pick.

We are rolling!!!

Go Canes!!!!

STOP LYING WITH YOUR STATS MR. PRESTON

ACC basketball special on ESPN at 5 pm. Da U is going to be awesome, now we know why the Gaturd coach wanted out of Gainsville.

Here are the WORST offenses in the COUNTRY in TOTAL OFFENSE...Notice Miami moved up 3 spots after that impressive under 300 yard performance.

6 ACC Teams down here that is pretty impressive. The ACC is the Anti-Big 12 and Anti-SEC. They cant play offense or defense.

97 Virginia---ACC Team
98 Duke-------ACC Team (one of Miamis wins)
99 Miami (Fla.)---ACC Team
100 Wake Forest---ACC Team (one of Miamis wins and barely beat)
101 Colorado
102 UCLA
103 San Jose St.
104 Mississippi St.
105 San Diego St.
106 Army
107 North Carolina St.---ACC Team
108 Washington
109 Auburn
110 Syracuse
111 Michigan
112 Tennessee
113 Virginia Tech----ACC Team
114 Florida Int'l
115 Vanderbilt
115 Washington St.
117 Wyoming
118 Temple
119 UCF-------Team Miami barely beat...WORST in the country!

Worst Team in the Country in RED ZONE Defense is who?

You guess it, your National Chmapion MIAMI HURRICANES!

113 Wake Forest 7 17 16 87 6 4 6 .94 (team Miami just barely beat)
114 LSU 7 20 19 105 8 4 7 .95
114 Pittsburgh 7 19 18 110 10 5 3 .95
116 Syracuse 7 26 25 164 10 12 3 .96
116 Colorado 8 24 23 141 12 6 5 .96
118 La.-Lafayette 7 25 25 148 14 5 6 1.00
118 Miami (Fla.) 8 22 22 141 10 9 3 1.00

Hey Preston go roll another joint and drive around Tally with a loaded gun you Moron!!!

Wow NCAA Stats,

It looks like the teams that are the worst in total offense in the entire country are the same as the Miami Hurricanes football schedule.

WEAK!!!!!!

Maybe it will give Randy Shannon an extension though so we cant complain. Keep that BUM in Miami forever!!!!

lol preston ur the biggest idiot that i seen thuS far...
WEAK FOOTBALL SCHEDULE

FSWHOOOO FIRST GAMES THIS YEAR WERE AGAINST WHO?

FSWHOOO OUT OF CONFERENCE SCHEDULE THIS YEAR


Western Carolina (PPV)
Chattanooga
cOLORADO

YEAH WHAT A STRONG SCHEDULE U GUYS HAVE

O yeah and didnt u guys lose to a 5-7 miami team last year with killa freeman at the helm...

Let me bring up a name that has been dead around here for a while.

Does anyone around here think that Patrick Johnson(?) regrets his decision to attend LSU considering how many true freshmen are playing for the U?

Your thoughts .....

Most of you stats nerds are clueless anyway: yeah so what of Tulsa leads the nation in offense. they stink anyway! FSU nole fans- ok ok you beat UM. We still put 39 on you and Wake still beat you. In Tallhassee. And youhavent beat Wake in 3 years. WOW> That's something to brag about. And you've won 3 of 10 against UM. Wow. That's something to talk smack about. And you barely beat a VT team thathad its 3rd string qb in, who in fact scored a TD on you. Wow. thats something to talk about.

And usa gator fan: SEC all day until something actually happens? Here's something that happen just yesterday:

Duke beat Vandy who beat Auburn
So head to head, the ACC and SEC are 3-3 this year. And LSU has had 50+ put on twice now. LOL.
so, SHUUUUT THE F--------- UP WITH THAT OLD "SEC" CRAPE!!!!!. ITS GETTING BORING!

6 ACC Teams down here that is pretty impressive. The ACC is the Anti-Big 12 and Anti-SEC. They cant play offense or defense.

Posted by: NCAA Stats aka canerules aka cokecanes

SO MUCH FOR THE SEC BEING THE BIG BAD WOLF.. LOL I LOVE LOSERS CANERULE COKE CANES NCAA STATS I SOLUTE U KEEP HATING

5 INT. TO A WAKE FOREST TEAM. THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT!!

All that matters is who WINS IT ALL. Not anything else and who won the past two years????

LSU
Florida

2 SEC TEAMS!!!!

Look at the top 8 of the BCS this year RIGHT NOW

3 of 8 are SEC TEAMS!!!!

How about ACC teams in the top 8????

ZERO!!!!

So go brag about that when the SEC wins another National title!

And until the Canes can even SHOW UP to the ACC title game, much less WIN IT, all you pompous Canes fans should just run to the corner and keep your mouths CLOSED!

Howdy Pards:
Great Game Canes!!! I loved the way they fought back to win. The climb back has begun.

Teabow + Leak Championship
Periloux + Flynn Championship
Harris + Marve Championship
Lets kick some ASS in Charlottesville

The Canes team almost beat Florida State and almost beat North Carolina. If we pulled those games out, like we should have, we would be the top 1 loss team right now sitting at #4. Next year we will not only win the ACC but win it all. I promise we will! That is how good this team is. We will win it all next year. I am so excited to watch us close the year out strong, make a bowl, and win the bowl game and then win it all next year.

Go Canes!

Watch out for impostors!!! We should end all posts with "GO CANES!!!" If an impostor can type that then they really have issues. LOL

The ACC and SEC are actually tied 3-3. Who's better? Not sure.

But our last in the Coastal beat one of the East's best. No going to say any names, but Vandy is 3-2 in the SEC by the way. How does our Duke win look now, num nums?

LMAO!!!

And what can FSwho fans say? We beat a team THEY COULDN'T!!!

STATE OF MIAMI in full effect!!!

GO CANES!!!

Posted by: Sarasota' cane | October 26, 2008 at 04:42 PM

Um, fake Sarasota...we will be on Raycom the ACC network, num num.

Then we have a BYE then we're on ESPN the next two Thrusdays, num num.

Plenty of exposure for the future Canes!!!

GO CANES!!!

Any football fan that worries about what goes on paper is an idiot!!!

Paper stats mean NOTHING!!!

Here is an example:

#1 Offense is TULSA. Oooo, they shopuld win the title. LMAO!!!

#1 Defense is TCU. Oooo, they should play Tulsa for the National Title. LMAO!!!

NUM NUMS!!!

GO CANES!!!

Guys the Canes stink and until we can win the ACC then we shouldnt talk.

finally Marve got it together today along with the defense. if they keep it up, the ACC championship will be within their grasp.

Sarasota... News flash... stop trying to compare us to the past...we are not a 2001 team yet and beating any team by any score, is a great win for us now... you have to walk before you can run and right now these baby steps are just fine.

I guess many have forgotten just how many games in the past, that we won, were just by a point or two, or by causing a fumble or by a last second interception on the goal line, to clinch it.

Manny... Of Sam Shields...Hit
it was #35 who got the late hit penalty, and he did deserve it - but #76, what he did after that, should warrant a multiple game suspension by the NCAA.
any chance they'll do anything?

of course we're not going to be like the 2001 team. nobody can touch that team. i'm happy that we're winning and getting recognized again.

We got back at UFreakin suck and FSwho by A) beating a Wake team FSwho couldn't even get more than 3 points on, and B) beating a Wake team that beat Ole Miss which embarrassed UFreakin suck in the Sewage!!!

We have plenty of motivation for UVA. I hope they play last year's game over and over in the weight room, locker room, even in their dorm rooms. Our defense might play the nastiest they've played all year. I'm looking to keeping UVA under 100 total yards.

GO CANES!!!

9 > 4
9 > 2
5 > 2

Guys Miami has a legit shot at it and I hope they get back at Virginia. Since it is election time lets not forget to put things in perspective. Here you go check this out, it truly is astonishing when looking at the number of arrests.

http://blog.thehill.com/2008/09/23/how-can-we-discuss-marijuana-policy-when-americas-top-drug-cop-wont-even-acknowledge-the-facts/

Big win vs Wake no matter what any of these fools are saying. In all my years of watching college football, I have never seen a group of freshman make this big of an impact like Miami is doing. Great job. We keep getting better. As for the "Preston Parker" posts. If is you, you are a tool for even coming on this blog. 1 word for you. Envy! You could have never made it as a Cane. What do you have 3 Td's in 2 1/2 years so far? That won't cut it. You should call Travis Benjamin and get some tips on how to get into the end zone. FSU dont want to play Miami again. As far as the Flaming Gators? Your gay QB even said he was glad that he won't ever have to play Miami again. Gators will be exposed again 2 more times at the least. GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with the comment about the freshmen. Most schools won't even play freshmen. I know we have to play them, but these guys are making me feel good about our team.

Let's keep winning and pray for a North Carolina loss, because I know the last thing FSU wants to see in the ACC Championship is MIAMI lined up on the other side of the ball.

And until the Canes can even SHOW UP to the ACC title game, much less WIN IT, all you pompous Canes fans should just run to the corner and keep your mouths CLOSED!
