Canes QB Stephen Morris calls USF a dirty team, says Bulls were going after his ankle

TAMPA -- UM quarterback Stephen Morris was not a happy camper after UM's 49-21 win over South Florida and didn't hold back.

I asked him about signaling to the sideline to leave the game midway through the second quarter and he responded: "South Florida is a dirty team to say the least.

"I don't know man. When your down under [the pile] and everybody is on top they're going to try and go for your ankles and everything. We were already up three, four touchdowns so I was like there ain't no point for me to try to mess with these guys. They're dirty. It is what is. I wanted to score 70 points on them. They disrespected us. I had no respect for them at all. At that point I felt like we should just keep pushing it, keep killing them."

What were they doing? "Little stuff in the pile. Just dumb stuff," he said.

Who was it? "I don't know who that is. Whoever was on the defensive line," he said.

Were they twisting your ankle? "It's the game of football. The obviously got the injury report thanks to a certain group of people. It is what it is."

How is your ankle? "It feels great. Compliments out to Vinny and the [training] staff. I'm going to be in the [training] room all day [Sunday]."

You're talking about Morris like he runs the offense. Morris doesn't design the routes or call the audibles. UM threw the ball over the middle plenty last year, so it's all on the offensive coordinator. There's nothing wrong with having a quick strike offense, we have the weapons and use them.

Shannon hasn't been the coach here for 3 years. I'm not sure why we need to discuss him.

Probably because Calvina is an idiot like Gallober. This 4 and 0 start is killing these two losers. Get them boys another bag.

You green rookies come in here, post your nonsense, and swear you know Canes Football, acting like clowns. Miami has the weakest schedule I've seen in many years. Beating the likes of Popcorn State and Bubble Gum University is a joke! Fans should not get carried away by these victories because UM has only played one real game thus far.

It seems evident that as soon as Calvina and Galloba resurface that they end up talking to themselves;

1> Miami hasn't played anyone
2> Steven M is not that good
3> Defense doesn't know what they are doing
4> Our team has issues in the red zone
5> Play calling suck**
6> Shannon would have done better and protected his players.
7> Coach Golden should leave the 'Canes. He is no good.

What a Cro** of Horse****.

Seems that we have heard this all year leading up to the season and now the 'U' is winning there is nowhere to go with all the foolishness written by these two.
Your posts and ideas are nonsense and none of the posters have any respect for what you two have written.

Slink away because you both are not needed here.

As far as what Morris said. He called out players so that the OFFICALS at our games will be more aware and LOOK to see what is happening. If you are dirty then you should be thrown out of games. The first time that happens, then teams will consider whether it is worth it to push the bubble.

I know that if Steven gets angry and complains to the officials, Coaches, and players without any action, then he will kick or strike out at that player and that will take care of that. Miami plays clean ball. There is a consequence for dirty play.
Go 'Canes
