Canes' center Shane McDermott to miss Savannah State game

Starting center Shane McDermott has been ruled out for Saturday night's game against Savannah State with a lower extremity injury according to the injury report released Thursday.

Shane McDermottMcDermott, who has started 14 consecutive games at center for UM dating back to last season, is backed up by 6-5, 319-pound senior Jared Wheeler. The fifth-year player out of Plantation American Heritage High has played in 25 games in his career, but has never started.

UM coach Al Golden said the team was preparing freshman Alex Gall to play in his first game this week. Gall plays guard according to offensive line coach Art Kehoe. Another player who hasn't seen a lot of time in UM's rotation is 6-8, 312-pound redshirt freshman Taylor Gadbois. Both will see more playing time this week as well.

Tubman emerges to talk hurricane football and gets attacked immediately. The proof is in the pudding.

"Attacks" on Morris??? I thought this was a Canes fans site, not a personal blog for the Canes cheerleaders and dance squads (they have an excuse for being biased and drinking kool-aid--their scholarships depend on it). Yall dudes need to get over yourselves for once. All of this selective criticism of posters critiques of our team is tired. If Sunny Dee, mahoney, Marios, Five Titles said what I just posted, it would have been cool.

Now dudes don't know what it mean to "protect the defense" or keep them off the field to lessen fatigue.

U would never be able to put me anywhere and Kirk Herbstreit is a man just like i am. He can and has been wrong many times on air, especially regarding predictions he has made about the Canes, that he has had to take back as Lee Corso, Rece Davis and the rest of those clowns clowned him.

The elites and talking heads are gods to U, but that doesn't mean they are to everyone. When i see Al Golden and Herbstreit--I see men--so I don't get a hard on like U.

Everyones a Gator but U still REFUSE to explain your Gator name.

Isidora and Wells and Harvey and Wheeler and Gadbois are Hurricane O-linemen whom should see some minutes in the second-half on Saturday night. dUh

I think Sean Harvey is a WALK-ON, but I'm not too certain. hUh

Anyone need some ICE?

I think Duke is physical enough, I don't consider him a back who only functions in space. He's a sophomore so hes got time to bulk up. He's not gore or mcgahee, I agree. I more physical portis with better balance maybe.

I think the oline needs some work, they aren't as dominant as we thought. Easley is a great player though.

" If Sunny Dee, mahoney, Marios, Five Titles said what I just posted, it would have been cool. " H.T.C.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The latter statement of FACT is quite true! No if's, but's or perhap's. dUh

Again, y'all Cane GOOD OL' BOY's don't take to kindly to loyal Miami fandom, whom don't SUBSCRIBE to your good ol' boy MENTALITY.

And that's why I was EXCOMMUNICATED from that Canespace venue. hUh

Referring to SteMo as super talented and saying inferring that his talents are so distinct that they can be a gift and curse all at the same time--is only considered an "attack" when its from the poster U mentioned.

P.T.S.D

Pig Tainted the Site's Demonizers

Cane fans with Gator names. Willie Lynch victims, self-checked, Pageantry, and Corporate canes LOL!!!

Stockholm Syndrome on full display!

I think the oline needs some work, they aren't as dominant as we thought. Easley is a great player though.

***********

Well, lowly Savannah St. isn't going to " test " Miami's starting SIX.

And y'all Cane bUbba's are bloody selling MIGHTY Florida's defense SHORT. Because that defense is a LEGITIMATE Top 10 defense. dUh

Yeah, yeah I understand Cane bubba's HATE for the Gators affects his opinions and what not. So what.

Back to canes football: Lt. Lois, I agree and hear your points again.

Only issue with referencing the manning camp is that we have real-time/game day proof and footage of Morris' abilities and deficiencies. The Manning camp doesn't have FSU's, UNC, UF, ND, KSU, UVA, Virginia Tech etc.. defenses there.

Dudes hate the Pig so much but his legacy of hate, insults and distractions to Cane football talk live on thru them. Zero self-awareness smh.

Repurposed and re-conditioned to do their oppressor's bidding to themselves.

They are the Curse.

You think everyone you don't agree with on this blog is a gator. That's why I say you are obsessed with them.
I have posted in the past when canetrash and all the other gators were posting too, there were just too many of them and drowned me out. No matter what you think I am correct.
Manny and Susan did not say Duke will disappear Nov 2nd. I said it. Manny and Susan just gave the facts that dating back to last year Duke has disappeared against every top defense he faced just like he did against the gators. KSU, ND and of course your big brother.
Nothing has changed this year.
Your O line is over hyped since it was being talked about "the best in the nation" and the Great Wall of CG. Today they are a bruised and injured bunch who got manhandled.
You were supposed to have the best and deepest WR core too. Now Goldie claims he is thin at that position and needs more help.
I like the ACC as is, with only Clemson as our worthy opponent, too bad they are not in the Coastal, that would assure the two best ACC teams play for the championship. You see I do not have a problem telling the truth, no other ACC team comes close to us two. Va Tech used to be good, no more. You think you are good we will be happy to put you in your place once again.

Not Our Rival, you have been right so far. I am the answer to your prayers. Come post in our blog so I can rip you there.
Rest your Great Wall fakes while you can, you will need them healthy for what is to come.

Seriously Tubby...you're nonsensical drivel makes me want to puke! You're a kid that believes the more you write the more effective the presentation and point....wrong!

You're a man and Al Golden is a man and Kirk Herbstriet is a man...other than placing yourself in that category--how very observant of you.

But here's the thing...Coach Golden and Kirk Herbstriet know what they are talking about when it comes to football--you don't!!!

D,

If anyone actually listed to your recommended bets, they'd be broke, because last week you said to bet the house on Alabama and they didn't cover.

Your as bad at predictions as analysis.

Makes sense to me, UM has been dominated in time of possession, even by FAU. Part of that is the bend-but-don't-break defensive scheme but more is the lack of ball control by the offense.
It's a quick strike offense, even the running game is all about the home runs. That tends to hurt the defense.
That said I'm not sure it's fair to say that Morris' lack of touch on short throws is the reason - #1 it's a chicken-egg situation because they don't call those plays and #2 pretty much everyone was raving about Morris' performance at the Manning Academy camp. I didn't hear anyone talking about a lack of accuracy or touch from him.
Hard to say though because when someone says a player can "make all the throws", they're really talking about tight windows and mid to deep routes, not touch or timing on the short stuff.

Lt.,

I'm glad to see you here on the site. Read your post quite often. How refreshing to see you can form your OWN OPINION ABOUT THE GAME OF FOOTBALL and not be offended with other posters whom doesn't agree with you. LOL. Need more like ya.

In regards to Steven Morris something tells me he'll be a better pro then college QB. His mechanics are improving but he's too inconsistent right now. Another area that concerns me is the defensive recognition development. I don't think he's given a chance to develop in that area with this "whole offense look to the sideline for the play" after the defense is set approach. I hope he's drafted by a decent team whom already has a starter in place where he can sit back like and learn like Aaron Rodgers.

////////////////////////////////////////////

Harriet,

Why waste your time. You see some folks fail at being able to form their own opinion. You are dead on in regards to Morris keeping the defense on the field too long. Funny thing is both AL and the offensive coordinator made a similar comment regarding the offense. LOL. But of course since you typed it, you are bashing Morris. Like Calvin said they have nothing to post unless it's about other posters.


A wise man told me not to argue with fools because people from a distance can't tell who is who.

Talking to a multiple personality, like the Sybil group, is really unwise, I'm told.

No sir, I have no interest in your fake internet rivalry except to remind you and the UM fans who engage in it that you're a bunch of internet nerds who are just looking to trash talk other nerds on the internet and are not talking about college football or UM-UF's rivalry at all.

I encourage you all to join "reddit" or some other forum for like minded internet nerds where you can childishly trash talk other nerds to your hearts content, thereby leaving this and the UF blog on this website for people to talk about college football.

Anyone need some ICE?
Posted by: Tim "ICE" Harrison | September 20, 2013 at 12:03 PM

Looks like you "iced" the hell out of CaneTrash. Now we need you to "ice" the hell out of Canekiller. Because the second one sounds just like the first.
Go Canes.

While it is embarassing that UM is playing one of the worse if not worse D-1 football teams, note that Alabama, texas, Oklahoma, etc etc all do the same. Plus they typically schedule two cupcakes a year under the pretense that "the SEC schedule is soooo tough".

That said, I still would NOT have scheduled Savannah State. i would have been more content with FAMU or Bethune.

That said said, Miami MUST put up the 60-70. The offense must execute, the D must destroy. The offense must score in every possession. Georgia tech beat Elon 70-0 in Atl. They basically scored in nearly every possession plus had take aways. Oregon beat Tennessee 59- to-something.

No excuses.

Go for the jugular. I'm tired of people who want the U to be "liked". I wantto be hated

"You think everyone you don't agree with on this blog is a gator. That's why I say you are obsessed with them."
No, WRONG again troll. I have disagreed with Canes fans on here. Not everyone I disagree with is a gatr. But everyone that TROLLS on here has been a gatr, that has been the case for five years running, troll.

"I have posted in the past when canetrash and all the other gators were posting too, there were just too many of them and drowned me out."
Yeah, sure. Yet they are gone and now YOUR ID shows up. Suddenly you are an FSU fan, obsessed with the Canes, attacking their fans on their site, using the same methods, IDs, and spurious claims that you did BEFORE 9/7. I only WISH they had drowned you, but they obviously didn't, sicko.

"No matter what you think I am correct."
Really? You are not politically correct, mathematically correct, or even Nostradamus-level prediction correct.
I proved you wrong about Manny and Susan, about how you claim you were not a troll, about how "Two-games" James is not better than an NFL QB, and that we would definitely not face Clemson. And of course your "no doubt" prediction that has a TON of doubts, so many that you are nervously attacking our pages.

So you go from "What I said before is just repeating the obvious that has been written by Manny and Susan on this blog before." to "Manny and Susan did not say Duke will disappear Nov 2nd. I said it."
You CLAIMED they said it sicko, and now you are backtracking like the loser you have always been. You were WRONG, admit it, fool. Actually, just go away. Your fake FSU bandwagon jump was predicted, predictable, and a failure.

"Manny and Susan just gave the facts that dating back to last year Duke has disappeared against every top defense he faced just like he did against the gators."
No, the entire OFFENSE struggled against those top defenses. Changing your story yet again, it must be tough with that many IDs and that many stories to keep ANYTHING straight in that sick troll mind of yours.

"KSU, ND and of course your big brother."
Big brother? You mean the team that REPEATEDLY lost to us when the games mattered, the team that has lost to us in titles, head to head, and even lost to us THREE TIMES in one year? You see, you used to claim the gators were the big brother, but now you are wrong on this one, too.
Wide.
Right.
Pick Clemson or Bama or Notre Dame for your next ID, at least they have something to BRAG ABOUT that you can coattail on, sicko.

"Nothing has changed this year."
REALLY? You just said you changed QBs, make up your MIND, troll. In fact, half the FSU TEAM is gone from last year. I know you are just beginning to read up on the Noles, being a gator fan for five years on here, but you might want to keep your lies down to a minimum, fool.

"Your O line is over hyped since it was being talked about "the best in the nation" and the Great Wall of CG. Today they are a bruised and injured bunch who got manhandled."
That oLine is 2-0, moron. A single fan using hyperbole does NOT equate to Manny and Susan saying that they are overhyped. YOu were wrong on THAT one, too, loser.

"You were supposed to have the best and deepest WR core too. Now Goldie claims he is thin at that position and needs more help."
Liar. We said our recieving core was DEEPER than it had been, and a coach ALWAYS recruits for more, he would be foolish to say we don't need to improve there. And it is corps, not core, wrong in math, English, logic, AND history. If you could say "Miami has beaten FSU in the head to head series", or "Miami has more national chamionships", or "Kickers STILL haunt the nightmares of REAL FSU fans (not you, gatr, not you).", then you would be right for once.

"I like the ACC as is, with only Clemson as our worthy opponent, too bad they are not in the Coastal, that would assure the two best ACC teams play for the championship. You see I do not have a problem telling the truth, no other ACC team comes close to us two. Va Tech used to be good, no more."
Wrong again, fool. 31-26 season sereis, heck that is worse than your gatrs have done against us, sicko. Please just stop with this nonsense while you are behind, loser. Ask bobby bowden what he will have on his TOMBSTONE, fool, before you claim the ACC only has two teams in it. And if there are only two teams worthy of FSU, then why have they ALSO lost to:
NC State 2012
Wake and Virginia 2011
UNC, NC State, and VT 2010
Miami, BC, and GT 2009

Looks like you are WRONG, yet again, troll.

"You think you are good we will be happy to put you in your place once again." Wouldn't you have to "put us in our place" at least once before you use the word "again", troll?

"Not Our Rival, you have been right so far. I am the answer to your prayers."
Okay, who prayed for a fat trailer dwelling obsessed troll with mother issues? Could you PLEASE come collect him and get him off of the Best Buy computer?

"Come post in our blog so I can rip you there."
I don't troll other team's blogs, hypocrite.

"Rest your Great Wall fakes while you can, you will need them healthy for what is to come."
So now that the gatrs are beat up and injured and .500, you are gonna stick with this FSU persona?
Then you might want to read up on the Noles and their fans. You see, the REAL FSU fans are classier than you, they accept their second place position in the hierarchy unlike you, and when they claim they put us in our place, they mean that our 31-0 drubbing of their rapping fools helped prove that our "PLACE" was #1 in the state, while you are seriously nothing but a large number 2.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

All I want to do is talk about Canes football, but Tubby Harriet is always attacking me. Please make him stop...puhhhleeeeze!

Wow, This blog is off the deep end. I bet this is a copy from the Gaynesville Sun paper, and the turd blog. These aren't real canes fans on here. Not one positive thing about those Miami Hurricanes. Eh. What say. The herald could be exposed for plagiarism.
Mountain vane, always calling others them names, never facts, at least calvin and gallo back it up with facts. Morons, Duh. I am the only canes fan

Here's a fact Dumb D,

You picked Alabama and said give the points and bet the house. No mention by you after??

What say?

Htc,

Morris doesn't limit play calling, if anything, his ability to drive the ball down dield helps playing. Maybe the oc shouldve called more screens nut thats on him not morris.

I'm also hoping the younger guys get in on Saturday, it will be good to see what we habe on the bench.

Where's the ncaa with our slap on the wrist?

Today, Arian Foster admitted to taking money while at Tennessee.

Here comes the cowardly gators...

D,

Has anyone here questioned Florida's defense?

True Cane,

Morris' touch has improved in the last 2 years. He's going to get a shot in the nfl, so I hope he's able to show what he can do. I like the big play capabilities of the offense because it puts pressure on the defense. Big play runs are all bc of Duke...the kid is awesome.

North Carolina State proved last night that they belong and have a good team. They had a touchdown wrongly called back and encountered several self-inflicted wounds that had they not happened the Wolfpack would have knocked off Clemson.

NC State has some great athletes at the skill positions and appears to be a well coached team...like the Canes.

Thank you Kirby Holcutt for scheduling this awful game for us. We have nothing to gain by playing this opponent.

Miami has more to gain and quite a bit less to lose from this game than they did playing Kansas State.

They will be scheduling one marquee OOC game a year and two home cupcakes, like every other big time program.

Doesn't much matter who the cupcakes are, Savannah State is as good as any.

How does Miami gain anythimg playing savanah st? Are we foing to draw a crowd tomorrow night...probably not. This is Miami not Gainesville...people have options for entertainment.

You don't think the experience of losing to k state helped this team?

F*ck no. Didn't help with ticket sales, ratings, rankings, recruiting, or national image either.

Complete disaster of a series, since then UM has decided we're going to play one marquee OOC game that does something to advance the program even if we should lose, two home cupcakes, and one middling team (probably keep going with USF) like EVERY other major program.

The focus is on winning the division and making it to the ACC championship game and better bowl games, as it should be.

That Savannah St. is much worse than FAU or A&M or Arkansas St. makes no difference, the point is to have an easy home blowout win.

Of course I "sound silly", I'm 100% right in pointing out this ridiculous fake Internet rivalry.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

You must be AD Foley....clearly u are in denial. ANyways 21-16! hahahahaha.

Put it this way, the ACC is a good enough conference that Miami will controls it's own destiny in the playoff seedings.

Adding tough OOC games does nothing to help the program anymore, we don't need those wins like we did in the Big Least.

Gallo and calvin are the only ones here with any football knowledge. Eh. What say. Most just write dribble opinions that mean nothing. Same thing, over and over. Be glad this Miami team gets a chance to get better. Bama would have covered the spread normally, but things happen. Mountain cane, you are definitely well schooled, like Jethro, a 6th grade edumication.

D, your an idiot. Start with it is drivel not dribble when you are busting nonsensical comments like yours.

You dope, you said lay the points, bet the house and bet alabama and now you say things happen. People lost their house because of you, moron. Dumb people, but nevertheless, they lost their house,

"cane killer" - Scoreboard. The only thing you killed was your offense. Eat some ICE.

Ps...jra: stay cool as "ICE"

who's going to the game tomorrow night ?

Hush nerd.

The smart thing for goldie to do would be to start playing all of the backups when Miami gets 2 or 3 scores ahead.

The reasons are:
1. Avoiding a fluke injury to a starter,
2. Getting backups at all positions some playing times,
3. Keeping the score respectable so moron Canes and fans do not break their arms patting themselves on their own backs after a big blowout.

But then, I have never been overwhelmed by seeing that goldie or the DC (or the moron fans on this site) having any smarts.

It is too bad we have to wait for halfway through the season for the Cane season to start. NC v. GT should be a good one to watch today since Miami has to play both of them.

The ACC does the conference schedule, so bring it up to them.

Golden referenced Kansas St so many times Florida week. We got blown out, so what, it let us know where we stood.

72,

No one is going to be happy after this game. Savannah St does nothing for us.

No one will be too excited after this blowout win but it is important that they win by as many points as possible. Take out the starters but keep the foot on the accelerator.

This isn't the NFL, margin of victory against an opponent like this matters in the polls.

Lt,

We can still win the conference and play tough ooc games. Fsu and clemson are there for us now but there's no guarantee they will be yearly.

Tidbits of the Cane sort. dUh. No not jorts. hUh

First of all, Miami DIDN'T intenionally schedule Savannah St. The Hurricanes WERE SUPPOSE to play lame Memphis this season, but Tony da' Tiger escaped out of their non-binding clause to play MY Canes this season.

So naturally, Miami was left without an opponent and opted for U Know Who. Eh. What say.

Nevertheless, Miami's A.D. could've and should've scheduled a TOUGHER I-AA team, but I'm guessing most teams of that caliber had preexisting contracts with other B.C.S. schools and wouldn't break their contracts to play Miami.

Playing the Sin City bookmaker, I'm giving odds of the... EVEN MONY sort regarding a Miami SHUT OUT this evening.

In other words, Cane bUbba plays his Ten dollars, plus the 10% " vig ", in hopes of winning his meager wager. dUh

Now, if M-Y Canes somehow don't get a shut out, then I win! Eh. What say.

Of course, the betting action could drive the EVEN MONY odds up or down.
