GAMEDAY BLOG: UM AT VIRGINIA

Hi everyone.

It's SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN at Scott Stadium on an absolutely gorgeous day in Charlottesville.

Manny isn't here today (he's covering Heat game tonight), but I'll have this blog set up so you guys can comment during the game.

I'll try to write some stuff during the game, but please free to chat.

Here come the Cavaliers -- orange jerseys and blue pants. The Canes are running out now with white jerseys and green pants.

I'm wondering if the Canes will come out flat, or come out with fire. I'm expecting fire, but you never know.

Cavs just won toss and deferred to second half.

Nice pass and catch by Harris and LaRon.

UM doesn't make its fourth-down attempt. UVA does because of pass interference on JoJo.

Wow. Beautiful pooch punt by UVA. Hurricanes take over at UM 6.

No on the Cover it Live. Sorry.

 Somebody must have taught the Cavs how to tackle and play rush defense this week. They came into the game ranked 114th nationally in rushing defense.

whoa. Jacory was nailed. Lying on his back. Not good.

SECOND HALF

We still haven't gotten a report on Jacory Harris, other than he's out for the game. Poor guy. He can't catch a break.

Stephen Morris? Wow. What the heck? There goes that redshirt.

UM

UM has not given us any updates on Jacory. "We don't talk about injuries," said Chris Freet, associate athletic director for the University of Miami. And that's after I asked if Jacory was taken to the hospital.
 
However, UVA sports information director Jim Daves said as of halftime, Harris was not taken to the hospital and remained at the stadium.

Again Bosher is garbage

Shannon has to quit. I have NEVER seen a more nonchalant, don't give a @#$% attitude in a head coach that has a team that is supposed to be in contention for a conference championship.

Shannon has ill prepared UM (J-12 sux, No backup QB ready to go, defense without life) against a team that has not won a conference game in over 1 year.

We should ALL demand Shalala terminate Shannon this week, or boycott all UM games!!!!

GO Boise State Broncos!!!!


What are U talking about after Harris left did not see another college level QB? Harris wasn't one to begin with. We didn't see one until Morris came in. If we pull this one out Morris is our new starter. Period

Lets Go!!!!~!

DEAR GOD,

I take everything bad Ive ever said about Shanon back, just please let us comeback and save the embarrassment.

Lets Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WE HAVE FOUND A QB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A star is born and its Stephen Morris

If the Canes win this game, the Shannon haters need to SIT DOWN and SHUT UP...24 point 4th quarter comeback on the road with the 4th string QB? That's DAMNED impressive. I had turned the game off and was beginning to agree with all the haters on here but I just turned it on and it's 24-19 with 4:39 left...what the EFF

Why do we just stand around on defense? We need to attack people not wait for them to attack us and then react. I don't take anything back about Shannon he is still garbage even with the comeback by Morris.

Give the receivers that much room and they'll get a 1st down every time. Game over, no comeback and you may now continue to then Shannon bashing. What thinks you Derrick.

Derrick, Shannon is the reason we are in the hole to begin with. We should have blown them out to begin with. Shannon is pathetic. The only impressive thing is Morris.

why zone

why no pressure on the QB?

No viable QB huh! Overall Morris looks best.

Shannons a loser, Shannons a loser Shannons a loser. Just imagine what our team could do if we just had a real head coach.

Interceptions are 1 thing but this defense gave us nothing, 2 third down plays to get off the field and they can't do it. No blitz or pressure on the quarterback and allow 2 easy passes. Randy and the D are very dissapointing.

I'm embarassed...

Well, it's time to start the campaign to fire Shanon. That was pathetic. UM is rebuilding again. We're like Notre Dame now.

embrassing.

Coaches have to go! Start at the top.

Bad coaching loses it in the end...

I am almost glad so that Shannon and Whipple didn't get a pass on this embarassment overall.

End of the game... Going Zone against an upperclassman QB... Instead of blitzing and man to man and forcing him to squeeze the ball in?

Dumb dumb dumb

Richmond, VMI, Eastern Michigan and Miami! FIRE THIS GUY NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morris + Leach = 50 pts per game

add an avg D and you have a contender

I FN GIVE UP

Shannon has to go... i havent been vocal on this to much as i wanted to wait and see. No emotion, not ready for games. At least Coker won some big games, the shannon era will prove to be worse..

Good bye Randy.

The reason we are in the hole to begin with is because our starting QB got knocked out of the game...you people will find any reason you can to knock Randy...disappointing loss but at least the troops showed some heart and Stephen Morris got some quality minutes...now that the season is over, it would be nice to see him finish out the year and go into the offseason challenging Jacory for starting QB

12 penalties and 5 turnovers, its always the same junk with these guys, where's the progress, the so-called discipline, we need a real head coach

Their coach is crying, they're all excited, but I don't know why. It's not like they beat a good team. They beat a team that struggled with Duke and will go to a Dec 29 bowl this year.

I like this kid Morris. J12 in not capable of doing what Morris did. The rest of the team got behind Morris. And it showed. Whoever decided to take Whipple out of game is a genius.

The future is definitely Morris.

They're dancing and partying after a big win....UVA

But our fans don't party for the Canes when they win.

The Canes get crapped on even when they do win.

How is a team going to keep it's head up when they don't have the kind of fans that most other respected (and even unrespected) teams get from their fans?????

WOW,
Out_Coached by a 1st year coach.
#44 MLB_Over-Rated
Predictable offense of plays (Every 1st down is a play action pass)
Missed Tackles
No Player Development program.
It's a sad state of mind for the hurricane fans. Thanks-Randy for the years of misery to come with your contract extension......

The Miami Hurricanes simply don't matter at all anymore. Why even pretend otherwise?

Stephen Morris needs to be the starter. He is WAY better than J12.

our defense had a chance and they blew it like always. they suck

DONE - PUT MY FAITH IN THIS JOKE OF A COACHING STAFF 4 THE LAST TIME. I DON'T GET IT FOLKS I JUST DON'T GET IT.

See you all in 2011 this seasons a wrap

no question that morris is qb the rest of the way. Shannon needs to go!!!! How many chances does he get? Coker woulh have been fired 3 times already.

Absolutely embarrassing. I can't believe I have tickets to the remaining games. Who cares? Start Morris the rest of the season and prepare for next year, so that we have two quarterbacks when new coaches take over next year. This year is shot.

Could Whipple's playcalling have been more predictable in the first half. Even the announcers said, run, then playaction. How about we try to just throw the ball without play action like other teams?

Yeah Derrick, but think about this: when 1 qb transfers, ok, it may be a clash of personalities. When 2 transfer, there may be some concern. When 3 transfer and leave you no viable option, who do you blame?
Maybe this perceived competition with Morris will make J12 better....maybe...

Im really concerned about our development.....

More Excuses. THe score was 0-0 when Harris went down. The team came out flat again. Drop passes, poor decisions and so on. Miami should be able to beat Virginia even with 4 string QB. They have beaten VMI and
Richmond. UNC just beat them 42-10.

Remember Shannon said the ACC Championship was not important. I guess he meant it.

But Remember our destiny is in front of the U. Here we go Meinkeee Car Care Bowl in Nashville.

i'm so embarassed...i just dont get this team at all.

don't blame this loss on Jacory getting knocked out! Randy Shannon is a good man, an ok recruiter, and a decent defensive coordinator, not a good coach for the U. Stop the madness....hire someone who knows what they're doing.

I'm not ready to annoint Morris the next coming based on 1 performance (I remember Scott Mitchell being 'way better than Marino'), but he merits a longer look.

I HATE RANDY SHANNON. I HATE HIS WORTHLESS STINKING GUTS. HE HAS DONE NOTHING IN HIS FOUR SEASON BUT EMBARRASS AND HUMILIATE THIS ONCE PROUD FOOTBALL SCHOOL. RANDY SHANNON MUST GO. I CANNOT STAND THE SIGHT OF HIM, HE MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE. VISIT WWW.FIRECOACHSHANNON.COM , WE NEED TO RISE UP AND ASK THAT HE STEP DOWN OR BE FIRED. I WILL NOT WATCH ANOTHER GAME HE IS COACHING I DON'T CARE HOW THE CANES DO UNTIL HE IS GONE.

I guarantee there will be some idiots out there that try to rationalize a silver lining from this game in that SHannon brought us back and give us a chance. But fools that was stephen Morris not shannon. Get rid of shannon now. Whipple recruited Morris himself and I can see why.
I don't know which staff is the dumbest at recruiting QB's, us or Florida. They are going after Driscol who is a prostyle QB and we are going after Bridgewater. Neither fit either teams offense. But that Morris kid is the truth. I wonder who will keep their job the longest Shannon or Harris. We will probably be stuck with both unfortunatly even though it is obvious neither should.

I really think if jacorey is out next week Morris will step up. He did a pretty dang good job coming in in a bad situation and he is a freshman. If any one argues that jacory is the only option now you are either related to shannon or still blind. They should have onside kicked it after the last touchdown.Leach for HC , Morris for QB. Oh by the way , I thought morris was redshirted? I thought he could not play? Does he loose his redshirt? Either way he looked good.

FIRE SHANNON NOW!!
