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.

Oh I forgot that great D. Could not stop one of the Worst Offenses in the Country in last 5 minutes. 3 and 9 with game on the line and WR is wide open.

Where was the swagga today? Where was the Randy chest bump? Frauds exposed again.

well its over and randy has found another way to blow a an easy game. other than morris's play this team lost confused and with no emotion. sound famillier. it wss like fsu all over again. 4:35 seconds and all we needed was a stop. no pressure and mcCarthy sucks.

The future is Kyle Wright, the future is Marve, the future is Harris, the future is Morris. I have heard it all before. Same recording. The future is this...Miami makes a lot of money and builds a lot of recognition from football. Why won't they bite the bullet and spend some money on a proven coach?? Why do we always settle for these bargain rate headcoaches when FB and BB bring in so much. Having high academic standards is fine. USC is a good school and they did fine. So did UM in the early 2000's. The problem is coaching. Hire a proven coach. Cough up the dough, and the ROI will be worth it.

CHOKE HOLD ON THE YOU AND ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY!!!!
LOOK AT THE END OF THIS VIDEO 58 SECS!!!!!!!!!!

wtf

If indeed they have the hutspah to fire the staff, do it NOW so that you can hire a new coach thus letting recruits know who will be here next season (at least those who still are comitted, rigth Teddy?)

I hear all this talk about Whipple and Shannon, granted they both suck, but John Lovett is horse manure also

Harris is no Marino to begin with. So that argument doesn't have legs to stand on. THis kid had no reps or anything other than scout team work. Give it up Harris is just as bad a QB as Shannon is a coach. Name one program in the BCS that Harris would beat out the QB they have already. ZIPPO. NA DA. NONE.

http://www.firecoachshannon.com/

this game and the Florida State gave prove Miami still has a long way to go. whipple's play calling wasn't good, penalties, players aren't executing, etc. I thought our front four on D was supposed to dominate all year. they sucked today. mccarthy had a bad game, he was out of position and took bad angles quite a bit today. i'd like to see more running and shorter (safer) passes. don't put your QB's (Jacory included) in positions where they can throw INT's. we have athletes, there's nothing wrong with hitting a running back in the flat on a swing pass and gaining 5 yards! you'd think whipple could figure that out.

Those who try to blame this in some way on Shalala just don't have a clue.

That said, this needs to end now. I was praying for RS but it just ain't happening. Let's announce he's gone after season and start the search now so we don't lose recruits. Season is over now anyway as best outcome now is a third tier bowl game. Randy can finish the year or go now...his choice but must be made by Tuesday.

As for a new coach, now is time for alums (NFL guys) to step up with some $$$ to pay a top notch coach. John Gruden won't coach the U for chump change.

The Coaches have to take the blame for this one. We didst need to throw the ball all over the place and on defense we couldn't make a stop when we needed. Randy Shannon always gets out coached. I am just sick and tired of wasting my time watching games and seeing our inept coaches putting these kids in position to fail.

He burned his redshirt for this meaningless half...not the wisest of decisions.

You forget how Randy got this job- NOBODY ELSE WOULD TAKE IT.

Can't wait to hear what the apologist come up with now to excuse this BULL...

This is yet another game where other teams with the type of talent the Canes have WIN by 30 points and WE FIND A WAY TO LOSE AGAIN

And again....

Stephen Morris was definitely impressive but I'd also like to remind everyone that during and after the 2008 season...all everyone was saying was how much better Jacory was than Marve and how Marve has to go and most people were glad when he transferred...well look where that got us. And by the way, everyone who's blaming Randy for not having capable backups, maybe you could make the argument that he drove Marve away, although he would have stayed if he were a competitor, but Shannon didn't do a damn thing to drive away Cannon Smith or Taylor Cook, those diva boys would rather start at non-BCS schools than wait for their turn at the U. Luckily, we got Morris in early and now maybe we'll see an opportunity for him to challenge Jacory for his spot and I think if we win out, or even if we just lose one more to VT with Morris at QB then that should earn Shannon at least one more year to try to win an ACC championship with a better offensive line, a deeper team, and hopefully a few new coaches (OC, QB, WR, DL, OL)

the worst thing is if whipple was conservative with backup quarterbacks in the red zone and ran the ball we would have had atleast two more field goals, exactly one point more than what we lost by

everyone talks improvement, and talk about swagger, we just lost to Virginia, wow we look like the bad news bears, our coach looks lost, our OC looks like a drunk, no one is helping Jacory build his body, looks like a bunch of rookie coaches and coordinators

Iam so tired of watching these guys you know, i mean idk, its the same thing every week, missed tackles, int's , penalties every other offensive play, no emotion, bad special teams, you know, now what, whats the excuse this week, Virginia is arguably the worst team in the ACC this year, now what we have to hope this team beats this team and this team and this team, sooo tired of this crap. you would think the defense would at least show up but nooo, typical poor coached team. they don't only collapse on offense or defense, its a complete team melt down. sports radio is gonna be on fire this week, go Sid.

I've always been a fan of Bosher...but what gives? Is he playing hurt? I used to think "automatic' when he came on the field. Now I'm saying "pleeeeeeeeease make it!"

This is such a bad loss there's no need to even get into the details.

That defense is a disgrace! Randy Shannon was a defensive coordinator, you would think he would have that think tight!

Jacory Harris is our new 2nd string QB. Stephen Morris....great job in a tough situation.

Follow up to earlier post: Hey NFLU guys, we need enough cash for a good staff of assistants too. Time for a conference call to take up a collection. That means you too Drew Rosenhaus...you've made millions off of the program...time to put some back.

What ever we need to bring The U back, we need to explore. This Randy Shannon project has NOT worked! Lets just admit it did not work and understand that it will coat money to make The U relevant! I love The U and I want the city of MIA ro be happy, we are NOT!

I'm cane, but I don't understand why Kevin Cain isn't playing more? Move 44 back to outside. Why Why Why if we have one of the best receiving core we aren't in 4 and 5 receiver sets more. Sometimes u won't be able to run the ball. This team still can't handle success! The team plays like Randy coaches they aren't afraid to lose there jobs. He preaches competition, but there are drop balls miss tackles miss blocks and these guys are still in the game. I just want him to practice what he preaches that all!!

Shannon on 560 right now with the SAME excuses

it's tough

it's hard

we need to play better

we'll play better

we'll bounce back

we went from big east champs to acc bottom dwellers. the money was not worth it. having to watch fsu and vatech win it every year. ever notice how the divisions are stacked so fsu gets a shot at the acc title while miami has to go through vateck n gatech. bowden must laugh at the trap he set for us every day. and we jumped right in it for money. but hey we lead in entry requirments along with duke. and our football teams show it. thanks donna

Losing to one of the worst teams in the ACC and to a first year coach is just another reason why UM must get a leader for a coach. No excuses, Shannon must go, and must be replaced by someone who can motivate the team week after week.

Sad to see so many talented players wasted on weak head coaching abilities.

4 YRS LATER AND WE ARE A SHELL OF A TEAM...AND WE WILL HAVE JUST AS MANY LOSSES AS LAST YR IF NOT MORE...AND A "HOME" LOSS TO FSU....IM AFRAID EVEN THE POOR OB COULDNT HAVE SAVED THAT DEBACLE HOWEVER.

WE ARE OUTCOACHED, UNIMAGINATIVE,SLOW,DUMB,UNABLE TO TACKLE,AND UNABLE TO MOVE THE BALL...SHANNONS BOYS AND COACHES THEREFORE HE HAS NO EXCUSES!

WE ARE ATROCIOUS...AND JACORY IS FINALLY OUT OF A GAME AND WOW, WHO WOULDA THOUGHT OUR BACKUPS SUCK TOO?!!!

REMEMBER, A LONG TIME A AGO A GUY NAMES BERNIE WAS A BACKUP-ONLY DIFFERENCE? HE WAS A FUTURE NFL ALLSTAR!

WE ARE HORRIFIC! WE ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT!!! CONF CHAMPIONSHIPS MEAN JACK TO ME...PLAYING WELL AND PUTTING A NATL CHAMP TEAM PRODUCT ON THE FIELD IS WHAT FANS DEMAND!

4 YRS LATER AND WE ARE AWFUL!IM SICK OF IT!

Jacory I am sorry, that the University of Miami coaching staff failed you. Your wide recivers drop passes, your O-Line can't block, your strenght coach damn sure aint trying to bulk you up, your OC calls plays that dont make sense,the head coach knows absolutely nothing about offense, no one is teaching Jacory how to become a better quaterback, and then come gameday us as fans put all the blame on you without looking at the whole picture

A North Carolina native and class of '63, I have been embarrassed since Miami joined the ACC. This coaching staff has to go, before it is too late to ever recover with recruiting!

I think we are all over reacting, we still have a chance at the music city bowl

Well, the 2010 is now a bust. Add it to 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004. What about 2010? Same bad play calls, Same WR's, Same LB's, No Bradon Harris, No Boscher, Same Shalala and Same Coaches. Looks like we're doomed in 2011 and our only top-50 Florida recruit wants to decommit.

LOL, we give you guys a shot at the presidency and a shot at a major college coaching opportunity and you did exactly what we expected you to do. FAIL. You are lucky Shalala is the president of the University and is a democrat because no one else would give you the opportunity for doing absolutely NOTHING!!! Nice Job guys.

Derrick, Shannon did run Marve away, and the other two guys Cook and Smith saw the writing on the wall and knew they didn't stand a chance of starting no matter what they did. Harris was going to be Shannon's starting QB no matter what. Drew Brees or Dan Marino could have been here and Harris was going to start no matter what. They were smart and were not going to waste their college career's on a coach who was not going to give them a chance period. Now Shannon has a decision to make Harris who has a weak arm and fragile and will throw Ints even with 3 years experience or Morris, rocket arm, mobile can take a shot and will probably throw ints due to lack of experience. If Shannon wants to keep his job he will take a long look at Morris and give the kid a shot, cause Harris ain't going to get any better as a QB.

what wins football games? 2 things consistently - running the rock and playing D. we haven't done either with any consistency this year. run the rock. we have big and athletic offensive linemen. teach them how to block. we're 4 -5 deep at running back. run the friggin' rock. then go to play action to your tight end. I think this Cleveland kid could be something. was he even on the field today? he has a good game last week and then doesn't play this week? how the hell are you supposed to develop under that scenario? our front 4 has been very disappointing this year. we need to be a dominating defense again which is a combination of aggressiveness and being disciplined. don't take bad angles, don't miss tackles, no big runs against.

WOW is an ass

When the play on the field reaches an apex it's Coaching that is supposed to get you over teh hump, when the team starts to take steps backwards it's also coaching.

Tired of hearing about RS's troubled up bringing, they should've waited to tout all that once he was a successful HC, all the props off the field mean nada if you continue to miss on the field.

What a loss!

Shannon is the worst coach in the ACC...maybe in all of college football.

Shannon says there was a lot of energy before Jacory got hurt!

REALY?

At least Florida eventually fired Zook and Alabama eventually fired Shula. On the bright side, at least Schiano and Butch are not dominating at Rutgers and UNC, that would kill us.

?? whats wrong with this blog?

I have never bashed the coaching staff but this is the worst, most unprepared team I have have ever seen. S Morris is the answer and our coach what ever his name is needs to accept thefact that jacory -ucks. this is worst than the 48-0 they put on us. Again we were not prepared

BOISE TO MIAMI
We should just put together a big juicey package for that guy at Boise State. Are you telling me we couldn't pluck him from Boise, ID, to come to Miami if the dough was right? If I were Kirby, I would be putting together a Pat Riley type PR/sales squad to get him down here now.

MIAMI TALENT IS OVERRATED!!!!!

Please shut up wit dat bulls**t.

Shalala brought this program down and will keep it down as long as she's here. These kid come to miami to play football not for acedemics but thats all she cares about. I guess they're going to say they need more practice, practice? we talkin bout practice? games over and we in the middle of the season and we talkin bout practice!?!(Allen Iverson)

OK, let's take this in another direction:
If RS is in fact gone, who (assuming the adminstration/trustees were willing to part with some $) should be the next coach?
Leach? (and essentially wipe away the stable of talent at RB?)
Pedersen? (why would he leave Cinderella?)

http://www.firecoachshannon.com/

How can Shannon keep his job? There's just no way he should be in charge of a football team.

it would be great if we could get Peterson from Boise State .... but we need an offensive and defensive coordinator as well

Junk, I am with U, bro. Why are our O-lines splits so narrow. They line up right next to each other almost touching. Money and National Championships would make Peterson want to come to Miami. That guy develops players year end and year out. Peterson, Harbaugh or Patterson is the way to go.
