Practice resumes Marve-less

GREENTREE PRACTICE FIELD -- The Miami Hurricanes returned to practice Thursday without their starting quarterback. According to UM sports information director Kerwin Lonzo, who addressed the media as players were coming onto the field, Robert Marve asked to be excused from the team and has returned home to Tampa to be with his family.

Robert_marve2Lonzo did not say whether or not Marve is expected to return the team in time for next week's Emerald Bowl in San Francisco. This could signal the end to Marve's career as Hurricane. Many rumors over the past couple of weeks have suggested Marve has been considering transferring.

Although, there is a chance this could be academically related. Wednesday was the day grades were released after the fall semester and it was believed some players might not be eligible for the bowl game because of grades. Last Sunday after the team's end of the year banquet, Marve told our Susan Miller Degnan in a hotel lobby "my grades were fine."

Lonzo said Marve was the only player not to return to the team Thursday. He said coach Randy Shannon would address all questions after practice. We are trying to reach Marve's family and will keep you posted on this developing story.

Marve started 11 games this season for the Hurricanes completing 116 passes on 213 attempts for 1,293 yards, 9 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He shared the majority of snaps, however, with Jacory Harris, who had a better completion percentage and threw for more touchdowns (10) and fewer interceptions (6). Last week, Marve's father had a private meeting with Shannon before the team resumed practice after a two week break. Marve then dodged reporters questions after practice, running straight into the locker room.

F*ck

WOW!!!

this is just crazy...it has to be a grades thing because theres no way you just walk out on your team before a bowl game...just walking out would affect who would want to take him on their team if he infact is leaving the U. no coach wants a player who would quit on his team especially before a bowl game. thats just bad bad news...

Damn man! This isn't good. For all u idiots that wanted him to transfer when he really didn't get a shot to lead this team are getting what u wished for. This could be crippling to this program. Best case scenario would've been to have Jacory redshirt in 09 and let Marve have full control of the offense. Now Harris who himself hasn't played in a full REAL college game will have to live up to this pedestal all u guys are putting him on. I'm not saying he can't do it, but God forbid something happens then who do we turn to?

It is time to start recruiting more QB's! Marve I wish you luck and success in the future! Jacory will not let us down!

Marve is a POS !

Getcha popcorn ready

He might be academically ineligible. Is this why he's a piece of sh*t to you, you stupid, ignorant, motherfvcker? It's ashame and embarrasing to be associated with fans like you. You are the piece of sh*t.

Hate to see anyone go, if that is the case. Who knows what going on before you guys get all riled up wait and see what is going on, maybe he is having family issues. Maybe grades, maybe he is transferring, give the kid a break.

K2... Eat Me...and stop making excuses, and blaming the fan base....

reading the story on the herald, his dad has said he is NOT leaving Miami, that he will be back for next year. It seems like to be 15 mins for class and not to bend the rules is getting a little ridiculous. I hope he does come back next year. It will be better for the team as a whole, not to mention the PR portion of this cant be good either.

We should be thankful for what Marve brought to the table, but I think for him to fail in the classroom is a sign of a lack of responsibility. We'll be better off for this in the long run. If he can't accept responsibility, authority, or competition, then we are better off without him. Good luck where ever he ends up....

Marve is going to have to GROW UP and be responsible, and he's going to have to learn to respect AUTHORITY, and not let DADDY always get in the way to try and handle your problems (many of which you may have caused).

I'm just venting here guys, but I must admit, I am more than a little disappointed with Mr. Marve. But I love Jacory and at least now, there are no more QB controversies. Jacory is our GUY!

Its kind of funny, but the same characteristics of Marve as a QB map to what we are seeing as part of his character.

1. Hectic, Impatient, and Erratic
2. Talked a team first game, but actions show: I, Me, My, Mine Syndrome.
3. Wild and Irresponsible
4. Does Not Trust Coaches, Forces Things
5. Gives Up on the Play to Quickly

Where as Jacory

1. Cool, Calm, and Confidently Humble
2. Team Player. Distributes the ball and gets others involved. Team responds to his leadership.
3. In Control. In the pocket he's not easily flustered.
4. Trusts the Coaches. He had to, to keep his head up while being the #2 guy.

The Jacory Harris Era has begun!

Marve is a POS !

You call your self a fan!!!
M.H. the guy still learning. He will still make mistake. If wasn't his grades, it was a disciplinary issue. He had four chances, and he blew it. He is going to learn you don't play around with coach Shannon. He has rules, and they need to be follow if you want to be part of this team.

Eat me? What kind of straight guy says that? Loser.

Blaming the fan base for what? What the hell are you talking about?

Shut your mouth and stop ripping an 18 year old kid for things that are going on that you know nothing about. Idiot.

So you are making excuses for him.....
why not stay and help out...why have his daddy come and speak to RS...

for a minute, I thought he was a spoiled brat, who thought he was entitled to the starting spot....

His injury set him back and Harris was more competition, than he could handle. I bet a birdie told him that JH was starting, for the bowl game....for whatever reason...and he takes his ball and goes home...and right in the middle of recruiting, too!!!
...and I'm a bad fan, for pointing that out....?

Whatever happens, or happened, I for one, want JH as our starting QB...

Marve is a POS !

Get the #$%^ out of here.

That was pathetic. You really should ban yourself from posting for a week or something for that. At a minimum, don't try to defend your comments or pretend that you shouldn't be embarassed.

We are all embarrassed for you.

FELLOW TRAVELER

Dear coach shannon,
i dont think its fair that i have to go to my classes on time. I also dont think its fair that i should have to compete with this jacory harris guy. I have been one year longer and weigh 25 more pounds than he does, so i should be permanent starter based on my weight alone. Class isnt that important to me, I am busy refining my interception to touchdown ratio. I think 9 tds in 11 games is alot and 13 picks isnt enough. I had 1293 yards this year coach in 11 games that ranks among the top 120 QBs in the nation, im atleast 113 out 120. i would also like to point out technically i threw 11 touchdowns this year , one to a corner and one to a defensive end. i know they werent on my team and it cost us but I do outweigh Jacory by 25 pounds.
Now that you know why i should allways be the starter and jacory should redshirt and ride the bench. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO START ME I WILL GO HOME AND I WILL TRANSFER. so what if im suspended for my 1st bowl game, its my 2nd suspension in 1 year. I shouldnt have to go to class i had 9 tds in 11 games and i weigh 25 more pounds than jacory.

START ME OR MY MOMMY AND DADDY WILL LET ME TRANSFER SO I CAN BRING ALL MY FUTURE POTENTIAL TO ANOTHER BIG SCHOOL AND HAVE A STARTING SPOT PROMISED TO ME.

SINCERLY YOURS
ROBERT MARVE JR. 9TDS, 13 INTS ,1293 YARDS ,205 POUNDS AND 6'1 WITH TONS OF FUTURE POTENTIAL .
PS. "FUTURE POTENTIAL" THAT WOULD BE AN AWESOME TATOO FOR MY AWESOME 205 POUND FRAME.

Do you not have anything better to do, loser? Nice life.

I stopped reading the comic section of the newspaper and started reading these articles instead. I have found these much more entertaining. I can not for the love of me believe that anyone of you are true Huricane fans. Some of the comments were just plain stupid. The question here is the fundementals of getting an education. Following the set rules, understanding those rules, and obeying the rules. This is not the JJ era, nor is it the BD era. The coach does not have to explain himself. The player does not either, he just has to live up to his agreement that education is first, playing is second. If he transfers that is his own choice. There is no need for explaination, just go. If he plans to stay then the player must learn from his mistakes. just like his TD to interception ratio. I also do not except the saying that he is only 19 cut him some slack. He the player is a man now, and should be showing more smarts then he has so far. As for the father. If you are disapointed in this situation and feel that a transfer will make it all better. Step back and think about what is at stake. A year loss, and who's to say that at another school this does not repeat itself. have him stay till he's a JR. take the NFL option. Take a risk on the draft. If nothing pans out go to Canada for a year or 2 then come back to the NFL like DF with BC did. Your kid is NFL material, you and the family will get the millions, it is just being delayed a year or 2. Its your's and the son's choice.

Does this remind anyone of a past situation? Remember when Miami had a hot shot quarterback (Kenny Kelly)from Tampa? Then a freshman came in and started playing better. Next thing you know Kenny Dorsey is QB for the next three years.
