Miracle time.

I agree, he's not the guy

We had a chance to crack the top 10 and blew it

We are losing to Duke, S.Fla, and our bowl game in Boise to New Mexico ST...

Face it guys, we are a disgrace... Jacory sucks, Shannon sucks, Lovett sucks, Whipple is overrated, etc...

Clean house already... Shannon need to go!!

Miami (8-4) vs Notre Dame (8-4) in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl.

Time to let Shannon go. He simply cannot coach

would be nice to have that field goal b/f halftime.......we still have that extra timeout though!!!!!

ENOUGH OF SHANNON !!!!!! his P-ssy attitude is why we dont win , he never is a go for the throat for 4 quarters has made these guys weak and our QB maybe will grow but his decisions suck..... im sick of being a LOSER cane fan fire shannon and get a coach with balls....

DC, I feel your pain. I just think at home we beat Duke. I feel Shannon will never get us past average

if they don't fire Shannon, than they just don't care about winning.. .It's as simple as that... He rode with Jacory and the bottomline is that he isn't the answer...

Jacory is done!!

Another bad performance by Harris... And out coached again. Ho Hum

Take away the picks returned for TD`s Canes win . Ia`m F-ing SICK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Game over!!! Season over!! Decent bowl bid over! Be lucky to even stay in top 25...

Look at it this way. We will end the season 9-3 and be in a decent bowl. That's better than last year. Cane for life

Brutal coaching, Brutal D, who is teaching these guys how to tackle? How will Shannon explain his clock management in the first half? That was really pathetic.

Pathetic

LOSING IS NOT ACCEPTABLE

HORRIBLE TIME MANAGEMENT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE

DO NOT RENEW SHANNON'S CONTRACT

LET NEXT YEAR BE HIS JUDGEMENT

We can still go 10-3, so comon guys relax. Frustrating, yes. End of the world, no.

Hey Navarro what Journalism school did you go to? Stope being a fan and be a reporter. Stop taking my comments off because you don't agree with them....Its ok you don't know the difference.

Stop making f..king excuses for Shannon, U homers!!

He is the worst coach in the history of Miami football!

I'm a true Cane's fan....but we were outcoached in this game. With better coaching my Miami wins Clemson and North Carolina, the ACC Championship, and a BCS berth. Instead, another minor bowl game. Jacory sucked today, and even with all the interceptions, Miami was the better team beaten by an inferior opponent. That's on the coaches.

Miami will actually go to the Emerald Bowl.

jasuckey "pick 6" harris! very overrated! davey obrien watch semi-finalist my ass! will we ever beat butch??? too bad Marve transfered, nobody to come in for harris! he needs to be sat on the bench!

Chewycanes are you kidding --- that reasoning is why the canes have fallen to being a pathetic "LOSER" team and randy is Butch davis's "punk" we are losing to less talented teams and 9-3 is not acceptable.... ask the players from the past in the NFL if 9-3 is ok------ it is that thinking that has the canes being losers and scumbags like Urban liar undefeated... no loss is ok If shannon was a man , he would resign for the love of the team, because he cannot Headcoach maybe Def Co. but head coach he will never be , and as far as Jacory, that idiot needs to look at how many games he single handedly lost because of his pathetic turnovers..... makes me sick.

My prediction... UMiami (10-2) Plays UF (11-2)in this year's sugar bowl.

Well, I guess you don't know ____.

J12 - just stop it!!!!! No time to be cool now - it's you and you are not happening between the ears and that's where it's at now.

You get what you pay for.

I'm not someone who says fire the coaches every time you lose a game, but it looks like Lovett is outcoached every game. Every series there seems to be a play that catches the D offguard. I believe that leads to missed tackles. And yes, the game/clock management leaves a lot to be desired.

Sure, Jacory shouldn't throw 4 ints but I'll be he was surprised at the coverages he was seeing. Why? It's gotta be coaching. Do they really think that every team is going to line up and just play the same exact scheme EVERY single game? No and that's why they get burned for big plays and always seem to be chasing their tails. That interception where Jimmy Graham was unable to tackle the DB is a perfect metaphor for our season.

Great talent, but they're only put in position to succeed about 80% of the time. When will they pay the money to have an A+ coaching staff? We're lucky recruits keep coming with our dumpy facilities and NO HOME STADIUM. I don't blame this on Shannon. If you're truly fair and not just promoting some hidden and/or unconcious racist agena, it's obvious that outside of some great recruits, the program is not set up to DOMINATE. It's set up to be mediocre, which is exactly what we're getting.

Poseurs lose!!

Time for Shannon's contract extension.

two of J12 picks happened cause he got hit the line just plain blows

jacory harris is killing this team 3 weeks n a row 3+ picks he is getting worse not better he throws the ball 2 late 4 one thing and his delivery is 2 long whipple is not helping this kid with his mechanics he needs qb camp this summer this was a game they should have won thiss 1 rest squarely on j harris.

Hey Keith i am a canes fan through good and bad. Say what u will, I won't lose any sleep. All I know is we r better than last year and on the way up...

To many mistakes let me count them a 1 a 2 a 3 a 4 interceptions and when the defense needed to step up on well they must have watched the Dolphins last week. But this falls on the offense a 1 a 2 interceptions for touchdowns. Will somebody please pass me a bottle of over proof rum, I need to lose this memory

Sorry, but in my book Jacory is not a lock for becoming a great QB. He throws way too many interceptions and has a "floater arm". Unless he puts on a few pounds and starts hitting the gym he will never develop the arm strength he needs to be a big time QB. They say he has a short memory and rebounds from his mistakes. I say that works against him as he obviously doesn't learn from them either!

also it seems like every single one of miamis passes is off of play action when we havnet est the run

I really miss Robert Marve......

Marve will be better Than Jacory when its all said and done.....

people should be mad that we lost but be realistic this team is better than last year

Marve??? Ha no way

Jacory will be fine. He was hit in the middle of throwing on three of picks. He needs to improve in several areas but he's going to be VERY good. He's the primary reason Miami has 7 wins. The coaches had him throwing deep too early and too often (same coaching mistakest Wake and UCF) and used long developing plays (costly on pass protection against a great D). Once again, the coaches (and this is on Whipple) way UNDERUTILIZED Damien Berry. Use him often and early and Jacory probably has two picks instead of 4. I said 6 weeks ago that Damien Berry should be our feature back and that he'd be Jacory's greatest asset. Some of you are starting to realize this. Instead we keep featuring Coop (who I like but NOT as a feature back) and we often end up in 2nd and 10. Bad gameplan, bad use of personell. Got what we deserved.

yea really marve was not good at all, he had 13 ints last year and he didnt even play the whole game every game

No surprise that Shannon didn't have the canes ready to go again. This marks the 5th game of the year he didn't have the them ready to play. Young team they may be, but it is still the coaches job to have them prepared and the blame lies with him...again. The good news is there is always next year, and the Canes should be good.

da ewe is back -- in the Emerald Bowl

maybe they can play USC there

'U' morons that keep saying the better team lost to the inferior team must have short memories. Once is a fluke. Twice is a coincidence. Three straight wins and 4 since 2004 is the rule.

I read the same blather last year...the better team won. Deal with it. And for "U" fans that know what they're talking about-it's tough to win on the road. Keep rooting for your school, though, because that's what real fans do.
Go Heels!

How is Shannon inferior to Davis when they have basically the same record over the last 3 yrs?

BECAUSE BUTCH OUT COACHED HIM LAST YEAR, AND HE JUST OUT COACHED HIM TODAY.

Marve was horrible. Jacory's problems are fixable and the staff should NEVER be throwing so many downfield passes as early and often as they did. Jacory will learn and grow stronger. Will our coaches learn and play the best personell (i.e. Berry)???????

Played horribly, but this one is on Whipple. If we would have had those 3 points from that obvious field goal at the end of the first half, we would have needed just one score in the end, which we clearly would have done with the rythem we had. Refs were chicken $hit.

aside from jacorys 4 picks, the coaching staff could have easily overcome that, how in the world could we not come up with a field goal at the end of the first half, ridiculous. we got outcoached and all we got to look forward to now is a meanigless bowl game, its pretty sad to have something meanigless to look forward to. I feel sorry for jimmy graham, this guy could have been playing overseas making some money and gave it up to come play football and play for nothing. This is all on the coaching staff because they do have all the talent in the woRLD (except vandyk) and they cannot put it together and pull out a win.

hahaha i told you so.

Shannon sucks whipple sucks lovettg sucks

Jascary is qwful he thinkis he is gd not.

7-6 is not bad.

Yeah...

INT12 Cane thru...

No words necessary cept...ha ha hahahhhahahahahahahahhaha
