Lineman's message to Jacory: "Lead the troops"

With the Hurricanes playing a huge game this week against North Carolina, it would have been nice to hear what Jacory Harris had to say about facing a team that has been in UM's way the last three seasons and intercepted him four times last November in Chapel Hill.

Brandon Washington It would have been nice to ask him how he's feeling and why we've seen him standing off to the side on his own during games and not firing up his teammates on the sideline like he usually does.

Hey, at least I know I'm not the only one wondering what Jacory is feeling. Turns out, sophomore offensive lineman Brandon Washington, tabbed as the ACC's Lineman of the Week Monday, is worried about his quarterback too. While most of his teammates answer the 'How's Jacory doing?' questions with what sounds like prepared speeches, Washington provided something a little fresher Tuesday: his heart-felt concerns and some inspiration for J-12.

"Jacory is a very talkative guy," said Washington, who played with Harris at Miami Northwestern and has started at right guard for UM in all six games this season.

"I just want him not to feel discouraged or feel like he's not wanted. When he doesn't make the plays he expects to make, you can see it in his face. He goes into a shell, breaks off and sits by himself on the sideline. That's not how he usually is. Usually, he'll be like 'Line, don't worry about it we got another drive. The defense is going to get the ball back. We're going to score.' He's just kind of discouraged right now."

Harris has been on a steady decline since he threw four interceptions in the loss at Ohio State. His completion percentage is 52 percent -- third lowest among starting quarterbacks in the ACC.  "He just hasn't been having the season he thought he would,' Washington said. "That Ohio State game hurt him." 

After that game, Harris received a racially-charged message on his Twitter account. After telling reporters about it a few days later as the Hurricanes prepared to face Pittsburgh, UM coach Randy Shannon decided Harris "needed a break" from the media. He's been unavailable for interviews since.

I'm not in any way trying to say Harris' struggles are related to him not talking to the media. I'M NOT. But while he's been behind the scenes, it is clear Harris has quietly been having a hard time dealing with his struggles. 

"Sometimes when he gets in that shell, [we] just to talk to him and say 'Man, we still love you. Come sit by the offensive line, we still love you, nobody hates you here," Washington said. "Once you start talking, he'll usually come out of it real fast, smile, be Jacory again.

"It's not that we need him to be the leader. But he's our quarterback, he's the head man. Lead the troops, lead us to the promised land."

QUICK HITTERS FROM TUESDAY...

> After getting a first hand look at UM during its 45-17 loss to Florida State, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit said last week that the atmosphere at Sun Life Stadium had too much of a "corporate feel" than it did a big-time college football game. There's no doubt FSU-UM games had a different feel in the Orange Bowl.

Damien Berry said while the student section has done a good job filling in for what used to be the old West End Zone crew -- being rowdy and obnoxious to the opposing teams, he admitted having fans sit farther away than they did at the OB has brought down the electricity level a bit.

Cornerback Brandon Harris made a great point about what it really takes to make a stadium rock. "I think what made the Orange Bowl special was the team that was playing in the Orange Bowl," Harris said. "That really amped up the crowd. I think the more we progress and the more put together wins, Sun Life will become just as crazy as the Orange Bowl was. It's just a matter of time."

> For those of you rooting to see more of freshman Kelvin Cain at middle linebacker after his stellar debut at Duke, here some news: You will. Just not in the starting lineup. Yet. Colin McCarthy was back practicing with the first team Tuesday at middle linebacker. Word is Cain will rotate in, allowing McCarthy to shift back outside every now and then.

> According to our Barry Jackson, freshman safety Latwan Anderson, rivals.com's 15th-best prospect in the 2010 recruiting class, has left the football team but remains on the track team. A UM source told Barry that Anderson is frustrated but should have known he likely would redshirt this season. UM is uncertain if he will return to the football program. I heard Anderson went off on Facebook over his frustrations of not playing.

> Saturday's win 28-13 win at Duke might have been a good win for some, but count Brandon Harris as someone who expected more. "As you team you want to dominate opposing teams," Harris said. "That was a game we felt like we played well in spurts, but we didn't feel like we dominated that game to the magnitude we were supposed to."

> After the FSU loss, Shannon said he was looking for more vocal leaders. Sounds like safety Vaughn Telemaque is answering the bell. The fact Telemaque has had three interceptions in his last two games has built a little more swagger under his belt, something he admitted he was sorely missing after going his first 15 starts at UM without a pick.

"They've definitely helped me tremendously," Telemaque said. "It's easier to be a leader, be vocal when you've done something. I just feel like I'm back in my groove. I hadn't had a pick in so long, I forgot the feeling of it, seeing the ball in, everything like that."

Several teammates said Telemaque has been a lot more vocal, talking trash to opposing receivers much more than he used to. "I told one of the Duke receivers tell your quarterback to stop throwing it this way," Telemaque said. "I wanted him to get mad and do it again."

> The quote of the day definitely belonged to Damien Berry. When asked what it might take to make UM fans happy, the running back provided some comedy. "I really don't know -- maybe give them some bean burritos after the game," Berry said with a chuckle, knowing full well national titles are all that keeps fans in a good mood. "I love our fans even though they put us up and down. They're with us when were up and sometimes they leave us down. But, it's not about the fans. Its about this family right here."

> Last but not least here is what Shannon had to say about North Carolina:

"The last couple of years have not been good for me or the University of Miami playing North Carolina. We're 0-3. We've had some games come down to the wire. We talked about it as a staff, football team - they have our number right now. We have a chance to do something about it. It's a home game. Watching North Carolina, you see their offense is doing a great job of scoring points and not having turnovers. T.J. Yates is doing a great job. The one thing he's done is stay focused, you can tell by his completion percentage. What he's doing with the offense, it's going to be tough. They run the ball to create passing opportunities for him. They have players that are skill guys. They'll miss the tight end [out with injury], but knowing coach [Butch] Davis they won't change what they do. Someone will have to step up at tight end for them.

"Defensively they have some great players. Their linebacker [Bruce] Carter is one of the best linebackers in the country, probably could have left last year and been a first rounder. You watch those guys on defense, they really fly around and make plays. They do a great job of creating turnovers like we've been doing. Their defense isn't going to do anything deep, will play backed off coverages, will see if we have patience enough to throw the ball underneath. We'll rely on receivers catching the ball underneath, make someone miss and get positive yards, and run the football. When we get opportunities to go deep we will. They're a bend but don't break defense. So it's going to be one of those games. We have to compete in our ACC conference. Coming down the stretch we'll have to play each other. All of us are geared up, ready to go."

The gators played in the swamp Saturday.......just plain embarrasing.

If SunlandCane is Latwan...that's the worst insight into this team I've heard yet.

Ti treat a bunch of kids who travelled with the team like that reflects really poorly on the program.

There has to be a reason Latawn just left the team.

Is this post real?
***************************

"Its easy to judge what you don't understand. We do it all the time, for one to speak on something they know nothing about is just pointless. This is the place we all wanna be but I remind you not ever one is wanted. This has nothing to with playing time I knew before I signed those papers I was redshirting no matter what.

Its great you feel so strong for your team, but tell me this if you had a son here and they didnt treat him right what would you do?

I knew I was leaving awhile ago, not cause I didnt play but cuz my mom is sick... and my grandparents are getting to old to take care of my brothers and sisters so I have to be closer to help out. I have alot of problems back home you would know nothing about, because all you know is what you see on the internet.

You complain that why would I go where they talk **** about me, well you just did the samething they did. You just didnt take it as far as they did. I understand you being upset based off what you think you know, but I was always told if I didnt exactly know something then I should ask.

Thsis program isnt what it use to be, its falling apart starting on the inside coming out. there is no excitement on the field or side line because no one wants to play for these ppl in office. My family was originally gonna try to move down here I dont wanna leave if I dont have to. The way these ppl treat US(ppl who arent playing) isnt right at all.

At half time of the FSU game they would even let us sit with the team, talk to them give them words of encouragement, hear coach shannons speech or anything. They sat us in a little as room lock the door and told us not to bring our[..]es out of that room. Is that what the U is all about is that the way ed reed did it Melvin Bratton is that the way its done? Then on top of that they brought everyone food except us not to mention its 1 30 in the morning, but when we ask where is our food they tell us to stop ***ing.

and thats how Ive been treated since I got here I bet you didnt know I quit football awhile ago Ive been straight track. I wasnt allowed to eat breakfast,lunch,or dinner with the team. Sometimes I wasnt even allowed in the meetings. I refuse to be used like a rag doll and then put on the field when he has no choice I know I can make a big name off 1 yr but I wanna win a ****** championship damnit thats what we are here for. If I wanted to just play I wouldve went to west virginia.

I understand you being upset, and I would be too in your shoes but you should never attack someone like that if you dont know fulling or understand whats going on. I love this place I still went and got the U tattooed on my chest 2days ago knowing I was probably gonna not be here. So you can never question my attitude toward this program I love this **** I miss 3 ****** funerals to help my team get ready for a fast shift return man in greg reid all damn week. and I get cursed out ppl tellin me I didnt work them hard enough in practice because they got in the game and acted like a bunch of ***es. Well im sorry if your upset because I think that the rest of the non-travel squad and myself should be treated like part of this team but it is what it is.next time ask questions ask any fan who has come to me respectfully I dont mind letting the fans see things from the athlete side of things"

J12 F the H8TERS! The only thing that matters is Family. Family is Bloodline n Team mates. F the World. Start driving Nails in the Coffin.

J12 u suck. u dont have the B...s to step it up. Fans at the U dont like little P... so get the point we are not going to support u, coaches, or any other players who keep getting a Lost on saturdays...By the way I hope UNC finishes the job and put u on the injury list permanent.. Go Canes....

J smooth = Curse of Art Kehoe.

Obsessed loser with Cane envy cannot throw the Gators in our face, so now he is trying to pretend being a Canes fan with multiple names.

If you don't have the guts to even stick with a SINGLE ID, why would anyone here beleive you have any guts at all, Curse Piggy?

J smooth you have serious issues if you want someone to severely injure a kid or someone. You a disgrace of a human no matter what team you root for. I hate Gators, but would never want any of them to be severely hurt. J Smooth = Moron, Loser, Disgrace to Humanity, Someone with to much Free Time, Friendless, Idiot, Bad Hurricanes Fan.

Castrated Bull gator, I know U are not the one that is accussing anyone of having 15 screen names when that is you. Today U want to be known as Canes over Gators, AP agrees. Well I agree as well that Canes are over Gators. But slick no body on here cares about the Gators. You are the only one that brings them up. A few years ago I was the guy that bashed the Steamer boy to death until he quit posting on here. Dude you are the only one on here who has no guts or nuts for that matter. These other people that post are just fed up and tired of losing because of SHannon. He can't coach, he can't recruit, he can't gameplan, he can't beat Butch, he can't even hold on to players that have already signed with us. Oh yeah he can't win either unless he is going up against a Duke or a FAMU or against a head coach as bad as him with less talent like Wandstache. Give it up dude the fans are tired of SHannon's lies and failures. We need to pull a Minnasota and can shannon like they did Brewster who was a failure as well.

Damien Berry is funny, burritos would make the fans happy. Burritos actually wouldn't, but seeing Lamar Miller get 50% of your touches would be a good start.

Got to agree, Lamar looks like he has that burst to take it all the way. But I do like Berry, the kid plays with alot of heart and emotion he just doesn't have the vision that Miller has.

EXCLUSIVE:**MIAMI IS IN A STATE OF EMERGENCY** THEY ARE LOSING TOP FLIGHT RECRUITS IN THEIR OWN BACKYARD THAT ARE ALL DIE HARD CANES FANS. THE PROBLEM HERE IS THAT THEY NOTICE THE SAME THINGS US FANS NOTICE ABOUT MIAMI. LOSING, NO PLAYER DEVELOPEMENT, LACK OF FIRE, ETC...MOCK MY WORDS_____IF WE LOSE BRIDGEWATER WE WILL PULL IN NOOO TOP FLIGHT RECRUITS THIS YEAR. THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG AT THE U OF MIAMI AND IT STARTS WITH SHALALA. JACORY HAS LOST ALL CONVIDENCE AND PPL ARE BASHING THE NW CREW WHO CANT EXCEL AT MIAMI FOR SOME REASON. I GARENTEE U THO THAT THEY WOULD BE FIRST ROUND TALENT ELSEWHERE THO.

THE FANS WANT TO CUT TIES TO MIAMI NORTHWESTERN!!! U GUYS ARE ALL IDIOTS..UWANT TO CUT DOWN ON OUR HOMEGROWN TALENT TOO NOW!! MAYBE WE SHOULD RECRUIT IN WASHINGTON FROM NOW ON THEN. BRIDGEWATER IS A GOOD QB..HE HAS LIKE 15 TD PASSES AND 2 PICKS AND HES ATHLETIC.

THESE GUYS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE AT MIAMI BUT GUYS LIKE SAM SHIELDS, BRUCE JOHNSON, KENNY P., JAVARES JAMES ETC.. R ALL HAVING DECENT NFL CAREERS??? THE BEST IS NOT COMING OUT OF THESE PLAYERS AND THE SCHOOL IS HOLDING THEM BACK FROM PLAYING WITH SWAGGER BECUS THEY DNT WANT THE THUG IMAGE AND THATS SHALALA'S FAULT. THIS IS A SAD MOMENT FOR MIAMI AND THE FANS

Listen.... we are a rudderless ship on the football field. Not one leader on the team. No one is steping up to take charge ON the field. Dropped passes, over thrown balls, missed blocks, etc., etc., etc. I was at the Duke game and others as well. I have never seen J12 more distant from the team then at that game. He was on one knee far away from recievers, O-line men.....everyone. Coach Whipple would approach him and console him like a child.....hell, kick him in the ass!!! All the talk off the field, in the locker room doesn't count. We need a LEADER..... like the ones we use to have. Taylor, Lewis, Sapp, Vilma. Take charge guys. To many prima donnas on the team. Wouldn't want to hurt their feelings....this is football. They just have to make it CANEZZZ FOOTBALL. STEP UP.

Is Damien saying that all the fans are of latino descent and throwing burritos at them would shut them up? Is that funny? Focus on the game - you are not Clinton Portis. Winning would make the fans happy not lame arse attempts at humor.

"Its easy to judge what you don't understand. We do it all the time, for one to speak on something they know nothing about is just pointless.

I Knew it. The program is falling apart slowly and surely. The recruits see it too. Eli Rogers decommits because they back off him because of his character??? i dont think so. Pleazzze Latwan expose what is going on behind closed doors because noone wants to tell because they know they will get into trouble if they do.

TO SunlandCane: Where did you find the post. I totally beleive it all..read my above post^^^

Wow reading many of these posts on here is a CLEAR reason why these kids don't need to play for the fans, that's for sure. Don't worry about making a play for the coaches, or the fair weather fans guys, you do it for the guy next to you and that's it. You go out Saturday with it's US against the world, literally, and you'll do fine. JH you need to stop standing off by yourself man, get with your teammates and rip each other when needed, pat on the back when needed, stand up for each other. KICK UNC's AZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!

Won't be long now till shannon and company is outta here. Thank god.

No the clear reason is Randy Shannon

I don't like beating a dead horse, but J-12 has to be the vocal leader. In war, it's the guy calling all the shots that everyone LISTENS to. He has to be the vocal leader. I've never heard of a war that the General is not the vocal leader. J-12 has to be the field General or else we are screwed. Hopefully he gets tired of being put down by the media and fans like me and does something positive about it. Lightbulb please turn on.

If the recievers drop a pass or doesn't run the route exactly as practice then the Field General aka J-12 better get on them during practice first and then the game. J-12 should know that ______ flows downhill so none of the players can tell him nothing. The only persons who should be able to J-12 what to do, how to do it, and when to do it are the coaches. For a fact, 4 of the 9 picks were on balls thrown to Travis Benjamin. He doesn't have the personality to rip them apart, but he does have ther personality to let his recievers that HE NEEDS THEM MORE THAN THEY NEED HIM so can HE count on THEM the next time. If a guy is not in the game mentally then he needs to tell them so.

If it is the O-line at fault then he needs to go to the leader of that group and have him explain how to do the job right to make him feel comfortable enough in the pocket to pass or run.

IMO the offense is not clicking because J-12 does not want to be that vocal leader. I've never heard of a war that the General is not the vocal leader.

Why is that kid Latwan surprised by the redshirt. He came in late and has tons of people in front of him. Miami is doing him a favor. Why burn a whole year of eligibility for 20 plays a year. If he thinks he is starting ahead of Brandon or Ryan its not going to happen. We also have experienced nickel backs in Van Dyke and McGee.

That kids is an idiot.

coker was fired because of the trend of the program, well i'd say this program is just as bad, and the morale is actually worse. randy has NOT done the job he was hired to do. if they keep randy, they should apologize to coker. coker was not a good coach, but neither is randy. shannon should be fired, for the further decline of the program. SAVE THE PROGRAM, FIRE SHANNON

Hey my friend stay off the weed its harmful to your health..

Actually, no it's not. What it can do for you:

The amelioration of nausea and vomiting, stimulation of hunger in chemotherapy and AIDS patients, lowered intraocular eye pressure (shown to be effective for treating glaucoma), as well as general analgesic effects (pain relief).

There is much, much more if you actually do the research and not just talk out your...

See, in the 1930's the oil companies wanted to put a lock on this great country to make sure oil was one of our main natural resources. As the benefits of hemp and hash oil was reaching these oil companies, Reefer Madness was born to lead the public to false acquisitions against marijuana. Think about oil coming from plants that grow like weeds. Don't have to worry about oil spills in the Gulf, huh?

We've evolved. Time for the government to do the same.

Now back to football! GO CANES!!!

@Say What ?
Thanks for the link. I thought it was a good interview. I was waiting for another Joe Rose moment. What was bad about it?

After reading some posts on here im ashamed to b a Canes fan or rather ashamed o be associated amongst most of you jackasses. i just hope most canes players who read this kbow deep inside KNOW MOST TRUE Canes fans arent such idiots

It's time for us to realize that this Saturday is tipping point for Randy and this program. And it will directly determine the U football program future or at least the next five years for the U....Randy looks like a worn old man, grey and tired, and sure does not look like a leader...Jacory maybe needs someone to get in his face and make him and his guys angry, instead of the poor me routine. One thing all of the legacy coaches here had, was passion and the ability to verbally motivate the players. Butch put his hand thru a blackboard at the Orange Bowl during a halftime speach, and Jimmy was flying Fbombs on the sideline at the players to get them fired up. Attitude relects leadership, especially in college football. We lose this one and its over...recruiting, staff, and we will start to see large scale transfers. Maybe OBama wants a job?

Donna Shalala...you will kill the snake fastest when you cut off its' head. The 'U's downfall started with her. One poster said she makes him seek to look at her and I have to agree. She is clueless and for goodness sakes take her off the school video promos. I'm embarrassed that we have a former Bill Clinton liberal hack as school president. Are you kidding me? Our downward spiral is tracking lockstep with her appointment. I can hear her now; "Oh, it will be OK boys and girls, as you see, football is just a game. Let's not be silly because one team has to win anyway so let's be nice and if we are going to be progressive in our politically correct world let's try to be accomodating. Play nice everyone as Momma Donna is watching." Somebody please make a tackling dummy out of this #@%$^&*( witch.

the recruits are onto shannon they know hes a loser!

I think there's a place for RS at the U. He's simply got to win more games, more big games. We need better player development, that's what's happening with the Anderson situation.

J12 is suffering right now, when I played somebody just said, "I'm going to do it," and forgot about what people thought.

J12 has got to at least "look the part." for a QB coach, Whip has got to establish better relationships. Outside of Spence, I don't know about the real heart of this team.

WOW, that gator troll is using a lot of different screen names.

Brandon Washington sounds like a leader, i hope randy dont chew him out for talking without a script. this team needs more motivation and fire. if its not going to come from the coach, then the players will have to take over.j12 does need to take the heat and keep going. like it or not j12 is in a slot for a leader of the team, so that means he has to lead and work harder than the rest not the same as the rest. his natural abilities can not cover up his flaws in college, now he has to add hard work with natural abilities if he is ever going to be great........ GO Canes

not a good interview, and the fact that shields and Johnson are doing very well in the NFL but not under randy at the college level is a big negative. With all the raw talent that those two had, under randy they looked less than average. If randy cannot develop players that have talent over several years I think the word will get out and top recruits are not going to want to come to the U.

http://www.790theticket.com/lebatard.aspx

I'm still a Cane fan, always will be! Win or lose I will be a Cane fan. This is a good group of kids and I'm proud of them.
Team, do your best.. it's all anyone can ask of you. Don't worry about what these fools say about you. Remember who's out on the field playing the game and who's sitting and watching/criticizing. That should tell you all you need to know.
The rest of you wannabe know it alls feel free to bring the hate.

Shannon OUT!, Jacory grow a pair and man up. All this cry baby sh-t, I am tired of it.
Play like the tradition of the U and earn your respect.

Hell, i played at the west...for some reason it seems like every couple of post someone is taking shots at those players as well as others. even the media is relentless (this fool above). constant bashing by media and fans alike....if im a recruit. i wouldnt want to come here either. you guys are a joke.

Honestly...Cane so called fans are the biggest detriment to this team. im not talking about the troll that are from other schools. they probably get paid to do this stuff. im talking about fans in the stand and negative comments they make and those that go on talk radio. man you wait for football all season and all you do is spew nonsense and rage ...why not find a ping pong team to be a fan of because these young men, who go out there every day and practice hard to represent this program do not deserve this constant crapola. they are young men, you can best believe they here this crap....they have courage to just still want to be here and represent this program despite you guys...and you know who im talking to. Im proud to be a cane . we lose ...i get pissed. couple of hours pass, i move the hell on...we will get'em next time....thats the mentality of a real fan.

I hear from alums that Randy has been dissing former great cane players and will not take their calls. He has been doing this from the beginning. Too bad they gave him more than a one year contract. Now they have to buy him out . So lets get on with it.

THAT'S WHAT MAKE COACH RANDY SHANNON SO SPECIAL. WHEN EVERY BODY, OR MOSTLY EVERYBODY, SURELY NOT MYSELF, WERE TALKING ABOUT BENCHING ICE, COACH SHANNON LET HIM PLAY THE ENTIRE GAME AT DUKE AND HE PERFORMED WELL. IT'S NOT WHEN YOU'RE DOING WELL, IT'S WHEN YOU'RE NOT DOING WELL WHEN YOU FIND OUT, WHO REALLY HAS YOUR BACK. COACH SHANNON. I WOULDN'T TRADE YOU FOR ALL THE COACHES IN THE NATION. NONE HAVE A BIGGER HEART THAN YOU DO. THANK GOD FOR YOU. GALATIANS 69
