Gore visits practice, injury report for Maryland

Former Hurricane Frank Gore reportedly stopped by Thursday's walkthrough practice in Coral Gables as UM prepared to face Maryland Saturday at Sun Life Stadium at noon. 

Gore, who ranks second in the NFL with 1,039 all-purpose yards this season, watched most of the practice and afterwards he spent time talking with Lamar Miller and running backs coach Mike Cassano. Gore's 49ers have a bye this week before playing host to St. Louis next weekend.

The Hurricanes also released their injury report. No surprises here as quarterback Jacory Harris (concussion) and starting tailback Damien Berry (lower extremity) were listed as out along with defensive tackles Josh Holmes and Curtis Porter.

Third-string quarterback A.J. Highsmith (wrist) is listed as questionable. The Hurricanes are trying to redshirt him.

As expected, Shannon announced senior offensive lineman Joel Figueroa had season-ending surgery on a lower extremity.

You should hang Jacory's suspender picture - it's hilarious. It will fit in with all the one hit wonders you mentioned above and it won't ever be worth anything so you don't have to protect it(like duh u's offensive line)


Anybody buying my latest posts above using all of the aliases? Anybody?

Justin Bieber just banned me from his website cus I asked him if we could exchange naked photos. I hate Justin (sad face)!

Urban Meyer and I see the same psychiatrist. The psychiatrist says Urban has pee-pee envy. He tells me I envy Urbans pee-pee.

Oh yeah! My psychiatrist asked me if I know the definition of 'irony'. I told him no and don't have time to learn the definition cus I'm busy hurling racial hate at the black University of Miami football players and coaches, while at the same time rooting for the University of Florida's black football players and coaches.

I know, I know. It's a difficult choice between posters but I'm leaning toward My Little Pony because it has Orange and Blue colors in it and you know those are my favorite colors. Go Gators

So, you’re a connoisseur of the English language. And you’ve taken it upon yourself to constantly point out to the world those who do not speak as you would have them do so. Interestingly you reserve your harsh critiques for black men affiliated with the University of Miami. Why is that?

Having just read your review I couldn’t help but notice that during your 1950’s Mississippi evaluation of Randy and Michael your numerous spelling and grammar errors. Normally I would not point this out, but my intent is to further establish what a fool you are, the key word being “intent” as the fool part is a given. Just as your “intent” is not to in passing mention the uniqueness of Randy and Michael’s speech. Your intent is to take a trait, not uncommon amongst African Americans, and use that as proof that anyone that speaks like that (African American) is not smart…like you! You think you are being clever in the way you go about your bigotry, but trust me, you are anything but clever.

What I do know, which anyone with a grain of common sense also knows, if those comments I have been reading are yours, then you are the pinup boy for this year’s racist calendar.

The punch line to all of this is I deplore political correctness. I detest those who play the race card as a means to win every argument. But, when I come to this site and read the garbage that you post, again assuming you are the one posting the hate, I am not going to turn a blind eye to this type of cowardly, bigoted behavior and would hope that other civilized human beings that read your thinly veiled hate would be enraged as well.

In terms of intelligence, your post above is tantamount to someone coming to a gun fight armed with a rubber knife!

I agree with you Sean, I mean Pitbull, but they're not nearly as funny as Addazio's statement that he needs some explosives on offense.

Ok I am going to admit something. I am going to the cane game tomorrow with a bunch of my cane fan friend. I will be the guy holding the sign that says Please Abandon the Arguement - Randy is the Man!!

This is not the real Sean Wilson. This is just another Gator fan with keyboard courage. Ignore the man behind the curtain!

Miami coach Randy Shannon likes to get up around 5 or 5:30 a.m. and go for a run. It’s his outlet, he said, the one vice he has to relieve his stress.

He’s been running a lot lately.

“I don’t keep everything inside, no,” he said. “Everybody thinks I keep everything inside. I still coach and have fun.”

Coach Randy Shannon and Miami have had to deal with several tough injuries this season.
If there ever were a season in which it would be understandable for Shannon to be on edge, this would be it. He enters Saturday’s game against Maryland without his starting quarterback, Jacory Harris, and leading rusher, Damien Berry, who are both injured. With a 5-3 overall record and 3-2 ACC record, it doesn’t look like the Canes will be winning any titles in Shannon’s fourth season – especially after Virginia Tech’s Coastal Division win against Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

For the Canes, it’s adding up to be another pedestrian performance at a program where average seasons have cost previous coaches their jobs. Shannon has earned a reputation for his stoic and sometimes defensive demeanor, but somehow, he has remained calm and seemingly more approachable throughout this storm.

“It’s something you have to go through,” Shannon said. “It bothers me, it upsets me. It burns me up inside, but I know one thing – I have to get this team back and ready to play Maryland. If I go out there ranting and raving like a maniac and doing things like that instead of coaching and being excited at practice and giving Stephen Morris all the confidence in the world, it’s not going to happen. It’s going to be the same way.”

Miami fans are growing weary of the same way.

“People see athletic ability but they don’t see immaturity of some positions, or guys changing positions, or what was their role there,” Shannon said. “They say that everybody at the University of Miami has all this talent, but they keep forgetting everybody has talent. The talent has to grow and go in sync with each other.”

Shannon isn’t listening to the fans, though, he’s listening to his colleagues. He said about six coaches throughout the country, inside and out of the ACC, have called and offered him encouragement.

“They’re trying to compensate and making me understand, ‘You’re a coach like us, we just want to show you support. I know you’re going to get upset, Randy, but you’ve just got to stay [with] your plan, do what you do. Yeah, it’s Miami. Everybody is going to be on you, the fans, everybody. You just don’t know what’s going to happen at Miami. Just keep doing what you’re doing, everybody respects what you’re doing,’” Shannon said. “That’s all I can do. I know my job is to concentrate on winning the game against Maryland this week. That’s the total focus. We still have a lot of things to look forward to in this conference.”

Shannon did something Miami fans don’t want to hear – he gave more reasons why this team hasn’t been as far along as many might have expected it to.

“Everybody wants us to do it, but has everybody looked at it this way? On the offensive line, we’ve played three freshmen. People don’t realize that,” he said. “ … A new center, Tyler Horn, Orlando (Franklin) has moved to a new position, and we’ve probably given up, what? 11 or 12 sacks this season compared to 35 last year? Then you’ve got running backs that are new … Your third string running back is now your starting running back because (Graig) Cooper has been out. Then you go to your receivers, yeah, they’re doing good, but we lost three tight ends last year – all real, real, real good players. You total those guys up and we were catching maybe 45-50 balls last year between those three guys. Defensively, we moved Colin McCarthy from outside linebacker to inside to try and give us some stability.”

Does Miami AD Kirby Hocutt understand all of those reasons?

“Don’t know,” Shannon said, “don’t know.”

Hocutt declined to comment about Shannon’s future at Miami, but it appears he has the support of university president Donna Shalala. Shannon’s four-year contract, coupled with the discipline he’s instilled and his nearly flawless graduation rate – are reasons he should still be sleeping well.
