Canes finally free to gush about Jacory

Raising a question about Jacory Harris last season at the University of Miami felt a lot like asking a parent to single out one of their twins. Everytime you brought up him up, Robert Marve would find his way into the discussion. 

Jacory Harris

There is no need to be politically correct about which quarterback is the favorite anymore at The U. UM players can finally gush honestly about the guy who stuck around and who some pundits believe deserves to be in the Heisman discussion two games into his sophomore season.

"The thing about Jacory is he helps keep us together," tight end Jimmy Graham said. "He's always laughing. He's always joking around with everybody. During the film meetings, he's always sitting with someone new. He's not sitting in the front. He's always sitting with the wide receivers, sitting with the running backs, sitting with the tight ends. He loves everybody on the team."

And everybody on the team, it seems, loves him. Even big, bad Orlando Franklin. The 6-7, 330-pound offensive guard likes being Harris' body guard on game days -- including bus rides. Franklin sits next to Harris on bus trips. Harris in turn provides comic relief for all with his jokes -- and his wardrobe selection. Whether its wearing funny hats or different colored shoes, Harris' teammates say he'll do whatever he has to do to keep things loose. 

One day on campus before the Florida State game, Phillips said Harris was walking around looking like "Steve Urkel," with "his socks up to his knees, his shirt tucked in and his shorts pulled up." 

Phillips said Harris took it up a notch on game day before the Florida State game. "We have our traditional shirt, tie and blazer we all wear," Phillips said. "Jacory shows up with this Louis Vuitton scarf, Gucci shades, funny haircut and earings. The first thing I'm thinking about is 'Tim Tebow doesn't dress like this.'

"But he's his own guy. He's different. That's why people love him. He's able to get guys relaxed when they're real intense."

Harris saves all his intensity for the field. Graham said the way Harris leads reminds him a lot of former two-time All-ACC guard Jack McClinton.

"His focus on game days is something I've never seen," Graham said. "When it comes time to play, Jacory Harris is a very, very focused man. There's no joking around. It might look on TV after the game when he's smiling that it was all fun and games. But during the game and preparation, he has that stone cold face on. He wants to win. That's something I didn't notice until the Florida State game. After the game I went to congratulate him, but he said 'Thank you. But we're not done yet.'

"He's a very focused player just like Jack. [Both] have a great game day preparation and gameday focus. They also share that killer whim mentality. And they both do not like to lose. They're very competitive and expect everybody to want it more or just as much as they do. It's a relentless drive to win."

That's why Phillips said everyone respects Harris, despite his funny shoes and his occasional "weirdness."

"In the beginning as a senior leader, I was like this kid better go out there and impress some people or I'm going to be real mad at him," Phllips said. "But he's doing real well. I really enjoy having Jacory Harris as my quarterback. He's making a big difference to the city of Miami and to college football. Big, big difference."

> EARLY RISERS: For all the talk about how much extra time UM has had to prepare for its opponents, nothing might have proven to be a bigger advantage for the Canes this season than having their afternoon practices moved to the crack of dawn.

"Me and Josh Holmes talk about it everyday about whether we like it or don't like them," offensive tackle Matt Pipho said. "Before practice, we're like 'God we got to wake up this early.' After practice we say 'We had a great practice.' There's a lot to like It's not as hot. Plus, coaches are preaching you to move drill to drill quicker. There is no heat. So we're getting a lot more plays in. I'm a proponent of them for sure."

> URIBE REMAINS ON KICKOFFS: I forgot to mention this yesterday in the blog (it was in the chat), but walk-on Alex Uribe will continue to handle kickoffs. Coach Randy Shannon said there will be changes, however, on the kickoff team and who goes down on coverage.

With out a doubt, Manny, there is a lot to be excited about. Much to my surprise, this team looks a lot looser in games, which is a good thing. Last year they always seemed to be too tense and or uptight.

hey manny im new on here but i have bn follown u 4 a min n u keep us well informed i live in orland/debary....and man the buzz around town is crazy......i love it and theres nothin but gators n noles round here...its very impressive wat they have done....cant wsait til sat....

Franklin is 6'7 and about 330 lbs, so he is a bigger body guard then you say.


Great article
This guy Harris reminds me of a cross between George Clinton and Joe Montana. He is great for college football but an even bigger gift to the city of Miami. Last year Robert Marve should not have taken a snap.

Wow, what a difference from Marve and Nix to Whipple and Harris. I am hoping that these guys stick around and we can get a few ships along the way. I am also glad to see that Shannon's way of doing things is working out. Score one for the good guys!

With all this new found "U" love, how has this played on the recruiting trail?

At least Marve is now closer to home...

Last year the talk was that Marve and Harris were always neck and neck; no clear cut distinction between them. Either somebody was not exactly telling the truth or Jascory did a lot of growing up since last season. One thing I do know is that the way Harris scans the whole field is a lot better than when Marve would check his primary receiver and then take off if the receiver was covered. I think it was Jim Kelly or someone of that caliber saying that during one of the games last year.

Edgar... was your spelling of JASCORY a mistake or did you mean to spell it that way? I like it... JaSCOREy Harris... I like it a lot. I posted this in the last blog but I think that blog is done so I'm posting the following again hoping for responses.

'Sometimes you just have to believe... does anybody remember what the legacy Matt Patchan said when he chose UF over his dad's alma mater? Something about how obviously oppostite the two programs directions are headed. I would say that kid is an obvious dumba$$ but I think that I agreed with him at the time. I'm pretty sure that I was just trying to get over the fact that we lost a legacy to UF... so... that kid is a DUMBA$$!!!'

JH is now making Shannon look like a genius. That whole "alternating QB" thing was a meticulous planned thing by RS. He saw something in practices, but he didnt let anyone in on it. He probably believed that the "truth" would come out in time, and that things would fall into place- They did.

Last year we saw why he was doing it. When Marve struggled sadly against UCF, when JH made that near miraculous come back against Virginia, when he beat Duke (also from behind), THOSE WERE ALL SIGNS.

I cannot for the life of me see why people were so much for Marve, after all the crap he put UM through- the accident (We still don't know the TRUE circumsatnces behind that), the off-season legal issue, the whole issue with class attendance, and finally his transfer. Good riddance. Same with Taylor Cook.

I hope the canes stay humble, stay hungry, and stay focused. All this media attention from ESPN, etc, can be detrimental- sometimes these 18, 19, 20 years olds begin believingtheir own hype and BAM! they fall back to earth (Can you say USC?).

It sure seems like the race between Marve and Harris was not as close as it seemed. Marve certainly felt that way or we would have stuck it out. Has Jacory scrambled for a first down even once this year? I can't think of one, except for a QB sneak against FSU and that doesn't count. Marve would run all over the place last year, and most of the "big plays" he was responsible for were QB draws that went for big yards. I love that Jacory sits there, calmly surveys the field and waits for a man to be open, even when the rush gets to him. He shifts over and looks some more, and he'll throw it away rather than run. That really helps the OL as well, because our receivers will eventually get open for big yards.

Go Canes.

jacory was always better than marve, marve was not a leader, marve didnt do his progressions. if the primary was covered he would scramble for 1 yard. or he would hold the ball till the play broke down.
Jacory is the real deal......
i took alot of crap for being pro jacory on here last year.
marve blows and so do the turds who were hating on jacory last year on here,
and you know who you are....canesjunkie,troy and mh

Whipple unsung hero of the "O"

marve had a 1.2 yard per carry. he had one long run vs va tech. he was bum..... im glad he's gone. f him and his daddy and his hs coach. i hope they enjoy the weather up there this winter...

Anyone else notice there have been fewer snarks from Gayturd trolls now that the U has outshined them (and any other program in the country)? Check-out the real power ranking developed by MIT Prof Jeff Sagarin: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/fbt09.htm

GO CANES!!

Editor's note: Each week this season, ESPN.com will ask one of its Heisman Watch voters to explain his or her picks.

1. Tim Tebow, Florida: Tebow hasn't been spectacular, but he's the best player on the nation's No. 1 team, and his numbers are strong. He is the nation's seventh-rated passer, and has rushed for 148 yards and three touchdowns. He has plenty of work ahead through which he can make statements -- positive or negative -- about whether he deserves another trophy.

2. Jahvid Best, Cal: Score five touchdowns in one game -- as Best did Saturday at Minnesota -- and folks will notice. Best's Heisman stock is clearly rising, but his legitimacy ultimately will be measured over the next two weekends. If Best puts up impressive numbers against Oregon and USC -- and Cal wins both games -- he will erase the term "dark horse" next to his candidacy.

3. Jacory Harris, Miami: Loving Miami right now. If the Hurricanes win Saturday at Virginia Tech and Oct. 3 against Oklahoma, they deserve at least a No. 2 ranking. And you could make a strong argument for No. 1. Why is entertaining that idea even reasonable? Harris. The nation's third-rated passer has been spectacular thus far.

4. Colt McCoy, Texas: Dropped McCoy from second to fourth on this week's ballot because his numbers so far aren't great -- six touchdowns, four interceptions. The haters will shout: Why is he even on the list? Because he's Colt McCoy. The Longhorns will shout: How could you drop him? Because he hasn't looked like the 2008 Colt McCoy just yet. Plenty of time to regain his Colt McCoy bona fides.

5. Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame: Yeah, I didn't like how he got all "Look at me!" when he committed to Notre Dame, either, but he's been nothing but lights-out this season, and he seems to have grown as a person and a leader. That should matter. If it doesn't to you, consider this: He is the nation's second-rated passer and has thrown for nine touchdowns with zero interceptions. One word: money.


jacory for hiesman ......marve for ?????
whos gonna be better...what about marves future talent...mh canesjunkie

Whipple unsung hero of the "O"

Posted by: phinfan | September 23, 2009 at 10:06 AM

ummm...whipple is the least "unsung" guy ever.

i would venture to say he's the "most sung" of the Offense (maybe you prefer "sungest" lol)

...besides jacory of course

canethang... you win the ever so valuable Prognosticator of the Year award! That and $1.00 will get you a lottery ticket. Congratulations.

Two other things about your postings.

1. EVERYBODY know Jascorey was better than Marve. Sorry to burst your bubble. Just because some of us defended Marve does not make us anti-Jascorey.


2. If you are trying to say that you predicted Jascorey would be THIS good then I have to call you out on that one. NO ONE... NO... ONE... know Jascorey would be this good, I don't care what they say now. If you say that NOW you are full of **IT!

Spread the wealth Jacory... Big Byrd, Benjamin's Baby, Old Man-kerson, Glue Hands Johnson, Collier County, D-Epps, Big Red(Graham), Super Coop, Baby James, etc...

Man we are loaded, but in order to win, we need the big uglies to keep it up...

I'd also like to see Smiley James get some carries late in the game...

I predict Miami 31-13

Than we have the big showdown at the shark with the Sooners... I am flying down for that one!!

Lets keep it real. your name shows me that you live in jaxx. most local dade county people knew that jacory had/has that it factor. He won a state title without having any type of coaching staff. that there should show you wgat type of leader he is. so while most of you out of towners where flipping out for losing your beloved marve, us dade county folks knew JaHeisman got this.

Silly boy..
What did just get home from the Sesame Street convention?? Dumbest nicnames ever.
U must have just jumped on the bandwagon.

Anyone have access to rivals? Would like to know more about the special teams changes...which is the main article up now.

As the Hurricanes continue practice this week in preparation for Virginia Tech, special teams is getting, well, a special emphasis.

And with good reason.

Beamer Ball has made itself known for big plays in special teams, whether it be a blocked kick or long return.

And that fact isn't lost on the Canes.

"Anytime you play Virginia Tech, that's a big part of their game," special teams coordinator Joe Pannunzio said. "You look at them on offense, they have some talented players, but they can get away from you much faster on the return game whether it be punt return or kickoff return."

Virginia Tech already has a punt return for a touchdown this year (Jayron Hosley is averaging 21 yards per return) as well as a kickoff taken back for a score (Dyrell Roberts is averaging 48.3 yards on kick returns).

The Hokie kicking game is also strong. Matt Waldron has hit all three of his field goal attempts and punter Brent Bowden is averaging 46.3 yards per attempt.

One of Miami's biggest concerns entering the game: Kickoff coverage. In the most recent game against Georgia Tech only one kickoff was covered inside UM's 39-yard line.

"Our kickoff coverage hasn't been very good," Pannunzio said. "We have to step it up, get all that stuff shored up."

Coach Randy Shannon added, "We have to get our corrections as far as coverage drill, because that makes a big difference. They have a good kickoff return ... we have to make sure we can control our kickoff return."

The Canes have shuffled some things around this week on the kickoff team. A new face that will get action: Demarcus Van Dyke, who is coming back off injury.

"I just got back on kickoff - it's real important we do well (on kickoff coverage)," Van Dyke said. "We're trying to pin them down at the 20-yard line so our defense can hold them right there."

The team has shuffled players to different jobs on the kickoff team.

"We just changed guys' positions, where they were lining up," Shannon said. "Sometimes you have to see who can do certain things and we just switched guys around on the kickoff team."

Walkon Alex Uribe handled kickoffs for the first time against the Yellow Jackets and put his first two attempts out of bounds. But he did a nice job on his final two kicks. He will again handle kickoffs in this game.

"Early he didn't kick very well, but then he came on late," Pannunzio said. "Our coverage has to be better, too."

Jason Fox, who is on the kick protection team, knows from experience how important it is to be solid on all aspects of special teams against Virginia Tech.

"They're a very explosive team, and their special teams are among the best we'll see this year," Fox said. "It's going to be important that our defense steps up and our special teams either puts points on the board or gives us good field position."

UM kicker Matt Bosher missed a pair of kicks last game, and he said that was due to pulling his head out too early.

He appears to have fixed that problem in practices this week.

"In practice he's been hitting them, but you never know when game time comes," Shannon said. "We put him under a lot of pressure at the end of practice, kick around six or seven field goals after practice each day and he's been nailing them, so it's good."

Shannon pointed Wednesday to one other special teams area he wants to see UM improve.

"We haven't really gotten anything out of our punt return team yet (the team's longest return is 14 yards by Travis Benjamin), but we haven't been able to field the ball," Shannon said. "So we just have to keep working on that."

The bottom line: Field position will be at a premium this Saturday.

"Beamer Ball, everyone talks about that," Van Dyke said. "Coach (Frank) Beamer is a good coach, special teams coach. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, so we have to be on our P's and Q's.

"We're doing a lot of special teams this week. We'll be watching for the fakes; we're putting extra time into it."

Olivier Vernon, who is on the punt team, added, "Special teams is really important. The past couple of games we had to tighten up on special teams. Special teams, during walkthroughs we go through it a lot and during practice we go through it a lot. We're getting better at it."

Asked if he's worried about Virginia Tech getting some big plays on special teams, Vernon said, "We aren't going to let that happen. We're too good to let that happen."

Asked what aspect of the Hokies' special team scares him the most, Pannnzio doesn't hesitate.

"Their return game; they're really good in their return game," he said. "And it seems like their punters and kickers are really playing pretty well right now while ours are kind of sputtering. Obviously it's a concern. We're working hard at it this week and hopefully it'll be the difference for us."

Might this game come down to a play or two on special teams?

"It's going to be a four quarter fistfight," Fox said. "I don't know what it's going to come down to. It might come down to a goal line stop like it did at Florida State, or it might come down to the last drive of the offense. Who knows? It's going to be a tough crowd, and they have talented athletes. It's going to be a fun game."

* Richard Gordon and Marcus Forston practiced "a little" on Wednesday, Shannon said.

Shannon wouldn't say if they'll be available for the game. The injury report won't be available until Thursday afternoon.

* Of having Van Dyke back from injury, Shannon said, "You can never have too many corners. That alleviates a lot of stuff that maybe Brandon (Harris) and Chavez (Grant) and Sam (Shields) have to do. And it helps you out on special teams because now you can put guys in certain situations."

* Vernon, a true freshman, says he only played 18 snaps against Georgia Tech. He made the most of his time in the game, logging three tackles for losses.

"With the rotation, I wasn't tired at all," Vernon said. "And if you aren't tired, you've got to make a play."

Vernon credited arriving in January for making his transition to college ball easier.

"It probably wouldn't come this easy if I hadn't come in that early," he said.

Shannon said of Vernon that "He did a great job of executing what we needed to get done against Georgia Tech, and that's why he's playing. He's done a great job coming in as a freshman learning the scheme, learning the system. He's playing well for us. His success is going to make us a better defense. He's powerful and very athletic and strong."

* Of new Ring of Honor additions Steve Walsh, Bennie Blades and Eddie Dunn, Shannon said, "They meant a lot to the program. Bennie and Steve did a great job. Bennie is in the College Hall of Fame, will probably be in the NFL Hall of Fame soon. Steve Walsh was tremendous here for us as a person and as a football player for this program. He's done a lot of great things. I never met Eddie, but he was unique. He was a football player here, a lot of people don't know that, still holds records from back then."

Manny, I think coach Whipple will be offered a head coaching job at a D-I school next year and I think he will be gone. Do you know or can you investigate if anyone on the current offensive staff is his understudy? Is someone learning the ropes to take over from this staff so that we don't have to start over? I think it's worth finding out. Please give us a blog or an article on that subject because I think this is a very relevant topic. Thanks.

I don't have a big enough ego to win an argument with you. Jascorey is the man so what does anything else matter. Who is Robert Marve anyway? Why do we even need to bring the kid's name up. Oh yeah... you have an ego to stroke.

Shannon knew he had a star with Jacory but politically with the fans he could not just sit Marve and start Jacory without a backlash. He just played them both and let us see for ourselves and the rest is history.

Is Alex Uribe the son of the the team's surgeon? I hope that he picks it up this week because we all know how VTech uses special teams to help them win games that they should lose. VTech will try and shorten the game and give themselves a chance to win a close one. Special teams really need to step up this week.

Any word on Lamar Miller. Will he be red shirt this year?

Finally, hats off to the o-line. Let's keep them healty.

Listening to these player interviews and coaching staff it seems like everyone has done good film study on there opponents and know there personnel and offensive and defensive tendencies very well. It just seems like the game plans are so much better then the last few years. They look and sound prepared. Hats off to these two new coordinators.

Spread the wealth Jacory... Big Byrd, Benjamin's Baby, Old Man-kerson, Glue Hands Johnson, Collier County, D-Epps, Big Red(Graham), Super Coop, Baby James, etc...

Man we are loaded, but in order to win, we need the big uglies to keep it up...

I'd also like to see Smiley James get some carries late in the game...

I predict Miami 31-13

Than we have the big showdown at the shark with the Sooners... I am flying down for that one!!

CCC,

I'm actually an alum and a successful one at that... U should be worrying about you're team and the bubonic plague/excuses their dealing with...

Look out, because after the game saturday, UK students will be tearing down goal posts and burning down Lexington... I cannot wait to see U jump off of the UFelony bandwagon... Tebow better start working on his postgame propaganda laden speech...

Um how does a college student afford Louis Vuitton scarf and Gucci shades? And his diamond earings are huge. NCAA should investigate. I will send an email to Myles Brand's succesor and his/her investigative team. Will post their findings later.

President's secretary: MR. Brand's successor... There's a SammyNole on line 1 about a UM student athlete wearing earrings and gucci glasses?

NCAA President: Oh... That douchebag again... Tell him to get a life and worry about his team's arrest record and academic fraud scandal that is going to cost Bowden 14 wins...

Manny thanks. Good news on Van Dyke. I hope the special teams really improve this week.

Stop speaking about Coach Whipple leaving. Y'all are talking it up. The man has not said anything about leaving, so LEAVE IT ALONE! Let's get through this season and enjoy the ride. GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Hokies are talking a lot of smack. They ain't GT or FSU. They say they got something for us.

Va Tech always plays Miami hard...

Anyone catch SportsCenter this morning?

On a Wednesday morning, they spent over three minutes talking about the Canes, including a swagger reel from the GT game.

Then (in a separate segment) Todd McShay came on and explained why Jacory is a Heisman candidate. He went on to say,

"Harris is passing the football with more accuracy than anyone else in college football--and that includes Tebow and McCoy."

There isn't gonna be a whole lot of room on this bandwagon after we win on Saturday...

After some lean years, Jocory has lead this team back, and CANE-NATION can once again grin ear to ear.

Hell, the team as a whole grew up this summer. Spence said it best when he said he felt like a ping-pong pouncing around last year, but this year he felt stronger. That can be said for the entire team.

All the praise and sucess goes to RS. After a turbulent off season with the whole Marve thing, transfers-it was RS that kept this team focused, and now he has them humming back where the [_] belongs-THE NATIONAL STAGE.

Thank you Coach Shannon for bringing swag back.

Sammynole, concentrate on having the Nolie players attend class before you start with that nonsense.

Let's get ready for VT, any word on if it will be Nationally Televised; ABC, ESPN/ESPN2, or ESPNU?

depending on your location, ABC or ESPN televises …

EAST OF THE ROCKIES

There seem to be some conflicting stories out there about Van Dyke and whether or not he is starting. It is clear that he is 100% and will be doing some kick coverage. It is not clear if he is definitely starting at CB in place of Shields, if he has to earn that spot back during practice, if he has to earn it back during the game, or if he is simply not starting again. If anyone knows or can find out what is going on and why the coaches are doing it, that would be great b/c I really think we need an upgrade at the CB position and I think Van Dyke can provide it...

For all you Shannon Doubters....2 words! SUCK IT!

Did anyone notice Jacory said there are 14 games remaining?

SammyNole,

I don't know about U but most of us had some sort of financial support when we were in college. I mean, I'm sure D-1 players get benefits but they don't include LV scarfs.

I know u dropped out of high school but step on any college campus and notice that kids don't wear potato sacks to school you dousch.

Manny,

My suggestion -

Add two more lines to the stats that are printed after each Hurricane game for the Canes and their opponent -

No. of players on the current squad
arrested or in trouble

No. of Seniors last year/No. of Seniors
last year that graduated

These stats are as important as those that happen on the field.

Thanks.

Um how does a college student afford Louis Vuitton scarf and Gucci shades? And his diamond earings are huge. NCAA should investigate. I will send an email to Myles Brand's succesor and his/her investigative team. Will post their findings later.

LMFAO!!! Always a hater somewhere...

Last year I made tshirts that said
FREE JACORY!
people already don't know what they mean
and that's fine with me.
This kid's LEADERSHIP was evident last year every time he touched the ball.
Oh - and did I forget? - this year, too.

14-0 = NC

The audio OF Jacory is dope. Green, Caniaic,MRA yall give me your observation of Jacory and his interview. I said in last blog I love the audio cause you can hear how the players feel rather than reading it. Pipho said last year if a all star d end got pressure and was suppose to be picked bu a back the team was basically like well its ok everette brown got pressure and JJ couldn't block him thats everette brown. Now this year Pipho said we like hey we don't care who it is if the back suppose to have the block thats your guy. he said he will try to help but the backs and tight ends but they stepped up to keep Jacory clean. I like how Jacory said the team call em bandwaggerrs. His interview is dope. I wish Manny would have a camera so we can see him act all goofy. This is gonna be a great game. Jacory and company got the feeling like "yall hated on us until yall saw what we had then whoa whoa whoa Tha Canes are here I knew they had it in them." This is typical for a nation who hates the Canes and especially when they win. Somebody said the Canes get dump on the worst when they down but when they up lawdy lawdy lawdy everybody knew the Canes could do what they doing right now. I knew that FSU was the swing game. I always felt we would be 3-1 cause I thought FSU might get us. We probably will see them again. But I didn't know Jacory was this good. I knew he was good when I saw Northwestern lay waste to Southlake Carroll. But play like this no way. He don't really scramble. Has a nice arm I mean can make every throw. Seem like he got some intangibles to work on like clock management But we saw him grow up a lil against GT when he threw Pat Hill the ball on that sideline catch. Kinda remind you of Dan Marino wit the fake spike. Headstrong QB thats what we always need here. Lovin the audio Manny.Nice Work.

I am glad Harris is the starting QB, but do grown ass fans really need to bash kids no longer w/the program? Whether or not it worked out, former coaches & players did choose The U & loved being there at one point & time. Can we move on? Geesh!

I liked Marve, he just screwed up big time! Sometimes you only get one or two chances to make lasting impression. I would love to see him light up the Big Ten.

It's his Dad and HS coach that I want to bash! They acted like handler's, when Marve really needed a parent and mentor. Karma is REAL!

Go 'canes!

Canethang...I replied to you in the other blog. Don't take this Jacory-Marve thing too far.

Noone here is concerned about Marve.
