« VIDEO: Golden, D'Onofrio, Canes players react to win over Georgia Tech | Main | Five signs the Canes are heading in the right direction »

Hurricanes coach Al Golden: "Seantrel is a grown man. ...I'm going to let Seantrel speak for Seantrel."

Al Golden just spoke to us on his weekly day-after-the-game teleconference, and he made it clear that he's not going to be making excuses for or talking about right offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson.

Henderson, who was suspended for the Georgia Tech game for an undisclosed team violation, can speak for himself, indicated Golden. Now a senior, Henderson has been suspended at least three times as a member of this team. Golden said he'll be back with the team "tomorrow morning" and "moving forward.''

  Here's exactly what Al said about Henderson:

   "As it relates to Seantrel, here’s all I’ll say: Seantrel is a grown man. He’s not a freshman  or sophomore. He’s not in here with a new coach or new athletic director anymore. I’m going to let Seantrel speak for Seantrel. I’m not going to answer these questions for Seantrel anymore.

   "I think he needs to address it next time we’re available to the media. I’m going to let you guys ask the questions and let him address it. I think it’s really important that he stands up and takes responsibility and let him communicate that to you guys.

   "Let me make it clear though, he’s back with us tomorrow and we’re moving forward. As it relates to Seantrel let him answer your guys’ questions, but as it relates to our team, tomorrow morning when we get back there he’ll be with us and moving forward."

   Golden raved about the play of the offensive line in UM's win against Georgia Tech, saying the line was "fantastic.''

   The coach also said it's important that quarterback Stephen Morris fully heals before North Carolina, and that if Morris is hurting, he needs to communicate it to coaches and staff members during the week. 

   Your thoughts on Henderson? This line is obviously special, and will excel with or without him. However, if Henderson can't get it together, the numbers are thin enough to be worrisome.

Yep. Sorry for his family's loss, but when one mourns, we all mourn.

What up j'ville, welcome back man. Yeah man, that Fsu game is going to be real interesting man. I still don't like our defensive philosophy although, when teams do get in the redzone against us, it's funny how now, i know most teams are going to have a hard time scoring a touchdown once they get there, our guys tend to play alot harder when teams get in the redzone and their mentality goes up a notch once teams get there plus the field squeezes down.

I'll always prefer the normal attacking style of defense, it just tends to demoralize teams once they realize, it's no use in trying. Although we beat the gaytors up, their defense left that field the better defense. As for Virginia tech, they're right back to playing national championship defense, and it just goes to show how people keep over-hyping bama and the boys, they're not as good as people have tried to make them out to be, not even last year, just like i said manti teo wasn't that good, it showed in the championship game. He's a solid player but had the gaytors played bama last year in the national championship game, it would've been a whole nother story. lacy & yeldon would've been getting blasted all game long.

Those 2 db's/the fuller boyz are legit, which is going to be fun to see our receivers go up against them, i'mma need smo to step his game up come that game.

The reading comprehension continues to be low, hell, anybody can recruit any players, it's the ones you get to sign is all that matters and under coach goldie, the qb's signed under him thus far haven't been that impessive, i don't count ryan williams he had already played college football and wanted to come home anyway since memphis changed their offensive philosophy. james coley got here and the qb committs kept coming.

In the spirit of keeping it fair, don't let em beat you down jim, but also, once your brother finds that video if he already hasn't of troll shalala saying "we're recruiting a different kind of athlete to the University of Miami" don't hesitate to inform the other posters who may not know about as many times as you tried to refute that fact.

In the meantime, you're starting to see how slanted some of these buzzards are in their post around here, it's comical.

Non of U have noticed that Morris should have sat out the USF game, I was telling everybody that week to start Williams and let Morris heal, instead it sounds like Morris was not being a team player and lied about his leg, Al took up for him after the USF game and said he did not hurt it anymore then what it was..NOT TRUE.... THE USF GAME HE CAME OUT NOT LIMPING, THE GT GAME HE CAME OUT AND IT WAS SOOOOO OBVIOUS HE WAS LIMPING BAD....Another one of Randy's kids looking out to pad his stats and not be a team player, Thank god for Williams at least he showed Morris that this team does have a TE on the field,TE starting being used after Williams played>>> FACT How many times did Al preach last year we have to use TE more...Williams played this year and maybe might have more completions to the TE then Morris and Morris has played more...

Good to see we got another independent thinker to the board. ryan williams runs this offense better than smo17, as long as he gets good blocking & time and he's way more accurate, throws the ball on time and on target.

I agree with everything Five titles and the ex Gator coach say. The two best posters ever to go with the best coach in the history of the NCAA, Albert The Golden One.
Canes are the bestest, they play and beat the best teams and Duke runs all over the best defenses in the world.
Those are the facts, and no trolls allowed.
Go Golden, Go Canes!

Weak and unoriginal, troll. So whenever someone writes something positive about the Canes, you are going to exaggerate it? Seems like you should go back to your hater ID, where you can accuse others of being delusional rather than pretending to be a Canes fan.

Calvin,
Why are you hell-bent on proving that Morris is not a good qb? You knock him every chance you can. You constantly compare Jacory to Morris, now, you are in agreement that Williams is a better qb than Morris. Did Morris or his dad do something to you? Seriously, what is the issue with you?

Ryan Williams played well against Savannah St, that must mean he's better than Morris?

I think Williams shouldve played bc Morris is hurt. That ship has now sailed. Even if you think Williams is better are you chance it with a shot at the conference title on the line?

Williams will get his shot next year.

No comparison between Jacory and Morris, Morris is a much better quarterback. There's a reason Morris is going to get drafted and Jacory is in Canada. He has a great arm and doesn't put his defense in bad spots with turnovers.

In the meantime, you're starting to see how slanted some of these buzzards are in their post around here, it's comical.

Posted by: Calvin | October 08, 2013 at 12:51 PM

Your posts are among the ones that are not rational and bordering on the comical Cal. We are 5-0 at the moment and Coach Golden has us going in the right direction. For the first time in a long time, all of us can see the players are giving their best effort on the field. The coaches are able to identify talent early on and get on the recruits first before anyone else. We are miles ahead in terms of player development under coach Golden and that includes QBs (Harris, Morris, Williams etc) Can't believe you can be so short sighted. May be you have to stick to your UPS trucks :) (you can tell I have been following your stories from Omar's days at the sentinel)

Agree with Football. We're 5-0, that trumps every argument against Golden, Morris, the current players, process, etc.

This is the most positive we've been in the last 10 years.

Guys don't u all know, WE'RE ALL STUPID and Calvin is the only rational, intelligent blogger on this site. Dude lives in a parallel universe where RS is the coach and J12 is the qb, lol.

He reminds of a guy I knew who used to say 'my shrink say's EVERYONE should have a shrink, EVERYONE has something wrong with them'. Calvin is PROOF of that, lol.

The reading comprehension continues to be low, hell, anybody can recruit any players, it's the ones you get to sign is all that matters and under coach goldie, the qb's signed under him thus far haven't been that impressive...I don't count ryan Williams...he had already played college football and wanted to come home anyway since memphis changed their offensive philosophy. james coley got here and the qb committs kept coming.

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

Now there's a surprise...Calvie doesn't count Al Golden QB Recruit, Ryan Williams, because next year the kid is going to be nothing short of great.

Calvie, Babe, you need to refuel your tank of lies as your recent efforts to belittle the best coach in college football, Al Golden, are worse than the lies by the admitted lowly Gator trolls!

Calvin is the only independent thinker. Here.

NOT!!!!!!!!!

First of all Calvin, Morris WILL be drafted in the NFL, something J10000(10000 being the number of picks or near picks Jacorry had).


Where j70 at, Calvin? Where he at? Where is he starting and destroying their stats? Is he re-writing Warren Moon's records in the CFL? Is J70 the new Warren Moon? Where he at Calvin? Not even the arena league wants him. How can you be so stubborn and continue to argue the inarguable?

Let Calvin be and what not. Heck, he's a LEGITIMATE Hurricane football partisan. So he's entitled to his opinions of the Orange nd' Green sort.

Nevertheless, Steve Morris is NO. 9 according to the latest TOTAL QBR! And that stands for something. Even though their are a few Morris' DISTRACTORS. hUh

Yeah, yeah I understand completely that he faced SOFT ARSE competition. Albeit the Florida Gator game is the bloody exception to the rule.

And I understand y'all Cane loyalist don't give bloody CREDENCE to stats' and what not. So what!

Still, Morris' didn't play a complete against two previous opponents. And if he would've played the entire first-half against Savannah St. and three-quarters against South Florida. It's safe to assume Stevie would be at least TWO RUNGS higher regarding the QBR.

By the way, several of those QB's ranked ahead of Morris' faced LAME non-conferene competion, too. Which helped to PAD their collective Total QBR ratings.

Better yet, at least three of those QB's were still in the game during the beginning of the fourth-quarter. ENTER the Seminole's QB which threw a MEANINGLESS touchdown pass early in the fourth-quarter!!

Chit, Goldie would've had one Stephen Morris YANKED mid-way through the third-quarter. If Miami ever had a 42-0 lead or a 45-0 lead, for instance.

Y'all Miami Hurricane football partisans will see what Stephen Morris is ALL ABOUT shortly. Because both F.S.U. and Beamer Ball will be the bloody litmUs test regarding his QB savyness. dUh

Yeah, yeah y'all Cane zealots probably FEAR Carolina Blue and what not ( SEE canespace/eoth bUbba's, for example. ). But I don't! Simply because LESSER offenses have defeated Carolina Blue!!

And yes it'a Thursday night affaire and Carolina rowdies will be KEYED UP for the upset of Miami.

Chit, the Lame Hill's will probably hang with the Canes for a quarter or so. dUh

However, once Miami finds it's GROOVE THANG!! It's checkmate baby!!

Nevertheless, Steve Morris is NO. 9 according to the latest TOTAL QBR! And that stands for something. Even though their are a few Morris' DISTRACTORS, which disagree with his statistics. hUh

That's what I meant to imply... TYPO's of the Bozo kind. hUh

Unlike all the previous rematch contests (USF, GT), this is the first one where we had lost to the team the previous year. The one thing in common with last year is Morris with a busted ankle.
Running back Giovani Bernard, gone, and nobody has stepped up for him on the Tarheels.
Linebacker Kevin Reddick, gone, and nobody has stepped up for him on the Tarheels.
Quarterback Yul Brenner, I mean Bryn Renner, injured worse than Morris, and nobody has stepped up for him on the Tarheels.

And that 4 point loss last year at home is a great revenge game for us now. That should help to ensure that Al Golden and the other coaches will not overlook UNC. Morris will want to beat them for their cheap shot injury to him last year, and the rest of the team will want to make sure that the UNC fans know who the real champions are in the Coastal this year. A loss here closes the door on UNC's title hopes. UNC is one of the few ACC teams (and maybe the only one) that can claim a winning career record against Miami at 9-7, (no, not September Seventh, back off your attack flight Jax Cane). Miami needs two wins to get UNC back in their place, and three to have it back to a winning record.

For all the abuse Miami's defense takes on here, UNC has allowed 20 or more points in every game this year, while Miami has only allowed 20+ twice, and in one case it was due to late generous gift TD in the last minute.

For all the abuse Miami's offense takes on here, UNC has scored 40 just once, against Middle Tennessee State, While Miami has scored over 40 in 3 of 5 games, and in one we didn't it was because we put in our backups.

So, for those that try to claim Miami has not gotten better, next Thursday's game will go a long way toward showing who is wrong and who is right.

D, I understand that Morris at #9 looks good, but just as Calvin is saying, his performance could be even better.

I still see him as a first round pick, and better than Tannehill for example (look at his throw to Dorsett in stride, versus Tannehill underthrowing two TDs, turning 14 points into only 3), but even more was expected of him. Duke is matching and exceeding expectations, Morris is merely scratching the edge of what he COULD be doing for Miami.

And seeing how well Ryan Williams has played, it makes me feel confident in our future for next year. his QB rating of 196.4, also against weaker competition, is better than Morris' 169.7, and would place him less than one point under Teddy Bridgewater, in fourth place.

Next Thursday's game will go a long way towards showing that UNC sucks arse this year and has already lost to East Carolina by a bunch.
That means that a cane victory is guaranteed and expected against another very bad team.
No excuses and no hype, those are the facts.
A cane victory will mean that the canes can beat a terrible team and nothing else.
Get back to me after Nov 2nd when you will face a real team.

blah blah blah, hate, misinformation and twisting of "facts", combined with foul language and an attempt to minimize the value of 6-0.

"Get back to me after Nov 2nd when you will face a real team."
Posted by: Fact Check | October 08, 2013 at 04:15 PM

Miami lost to UNC last year. FACT.
Miami has gotten better this year. FACT.
Miami winning will be further proof that they have gotten better this year. FACT.

Oh, and that team we faced on 9-7 (you know the one, I don't want to name it because like beetlejuice if you say it too many times, it comes back to troll here) was not a real team? They were a ranked team, a favored team, but now they were not real? Okay, "Fiction Check".

Of course, nobody was "getting back to you" either before OR after November 2nd, except in your obsessed mind. Does this mean we will not be hearing from you, DAILY, between now and November second? Nah....

The argument of where is jacory at now has no merrit on who was the better college qb. jacory never faced this many cupcake teams. Somebody tried to refute when i posted a video of j70 running the offense against Georgia tech and the only comeback they had was, jacory only threw for less than 200 yards that, in the meantime, that was against Georgia tech a legit team, but they're trying to argue with me that smo17 is better, he only came out throwing for a whopping 160 yards against FAU, but he got better next game and followed that up with his patented 162 yards against the gaytors.

To try and use whether a player was any good in college based on whether he's in the nfl now is a dumb argument, to many real good college players that never played in the nfl that refutes that non-sense.

smo has a lot of nfl physical tools that of course they're enamoured with, but to act like him being the qb here and we're 5 & 0 as if we played a helluva schedule or something is comical. j70 went 3 & 1 against legit ranked teams, who in here don't thin he would've did the same thing with this schedule, in fact we would've routed the gaytors.

I recall over the summer when you were claiming a Miami loss on 9-7 was "guaranteed", too. Are you trying to use some kind of reverse karma by "guaranteeing" a win which nobody on planet earth can do?

News for you obsessed troll, your predictions do not impact the games either way, but seeing you wrong on 9-7 was still a great thing that you cannot change no matter how many guarantees you make. Your "guarantees" are NOT "fact", they are weak prediction. Learn the difference and get back to us on November 2nd, 2055.

Hello!!! thank god Williams played because he showed Morris that this team DOE"S HAVE A TE. Against Florida in the 2nd quarter which I still have recorded, HE COULD NOT HIT A 20 YARD PASS AT ALL, GO BACK AND WATCH. 2 weeks ago I was yelling let Morris heal and give your back up some playing time. Morris comes out against USF and hurts it more and at end of game Al tells the Media that Morris did not hurt it any more then what it was...NOT TRUE PEOPLE....Morris came out against GT LIMPING REAL BAD WHICH HE DID NOT DO WHEN HE STARTED THE USF GAME. Al comes out yesterday and said it is very important that Steven gets Healthy before the NC game, and he also says that Morris did not communicate with the Coaches how hurt he was..THATS NOT A TEAM PLAYER, HE MADE AL LOOK LIKE A LIAR AFTER THE USF GAME>>>>HE SHOULD MISS THE NC GAME FOR PUTTING TEAM AT RISK...I GREW UP A 80"s CANE AND AL GOLDEN WAS THE PERFECT FIT FOR THIS TEAM, GREAT MAN....I HOPE HE SITS HIS ASS TO TEACH HIM, HE WILL AT LEAST GET TO SEE WILLIAMS THROW TO THE TE...2nd half of the Florida game the coaching staff was not going to let Morris put the game at risk...PLAY CALLING CHANGED AND THEY COUNTED ON THE D....GREAT COACHING

Calvin, we don't use that 'g' word here, it gets a certain troll mad, claims we are talking about Yesteryear when it was this season.

As for how JH would have done with this team, against that team, in let's say his senior year (to match SMO), I can't picture a rout, and perhaps even a loss. JH would have been able to make that first toss to Waters, but catching Dorsett in stride for the 52 yarder, not likely. So, first half Morris > JH.

BUT JH second half could not have done worse than Morris second half. 0-4 on third down, took a sack, and had a costly INT. I still don't see it as being a rout though with JH in there, just see it as a more comfortable win after Morris' excellent first quarter.

So Rick, you figure that next year, Williams will have a QB Rating better than Morris this year.

Recall that I showed he currently has a better one than Morris, so it is not out of the question.

Then, why do you think the coaches have Morris as the first string QB? Truly curious to read your opinion.

This 5 Titles dude is about to blow a gasket, and yes, he is delusional to the extreme. Paranoid too. And hallucinating as well. Where in my previous post is there "hate", "misinformation" and "fowl language"?
No "twisting" anything fool.
Fact is UNC sucks arse THIS year, who cares what happened last year, or 20 years ago fool.
Fact is they lost to East Carolina, a doormat you pay to come to your stadium to beat up.
So my prediction and guarantee of a cane victory is a very educated prediction and a very possible guarantee, very likely to happen.
What do you not understand?
It is NORTH Carolina.
You are not playing South Carolina, that is a real team.
Wrong Carolina for you.
Actually the right one. Another pansy. That is what you play this year, pansies. Easy to go undefeated by playing 90% pansies year in and out.
Amazing you have never won the ACC while playing all these pansies.
Maybe this is the year.
Then again, Golden has been known to lose to pansies every year he has been at UM.
That is another FACT for you.
Who will be the pansie that beats you this year?

Oh look who slipped into their canetrash persona in writing style, but stuck with Fact Check for an ID. LOL!

"This 5 Titles dude is about to blow a gasket, and yes, he is delusional to the extreme."
Personal insult, a false one at that, but definitely not a fact.

"Paranoid too."
Really, Dr. Fact Check? Funny how I have been able to discuss football with Calvin, D, Cane88, and many others on here without thinking they were "out to get me." Are you sure you know the definition of paranoid? Delusional? Hallucinating? Nah, you haven't shown that level of education inthe past, or that level of empathy or concern for others that would lead you to take Psychology or Sociology courses.

"And hallucinating as well." Really? Can you show a sinlge hallucination in text? Nah, you are just flining insults in each of your posts because you have nothing else.

"Where in my previous post is there "hate","
You haven't been spewing hate? Calling me deulsional, Paranoid, and hallucinating is not hatespeech? Suuurrre.

"misinformation"
You guaranteed a victory, that is not a fact, that is a prediction.

and "fowl language"?
Never said you did that. FOUL language though, claiming that UNC does things like that to rear ends is foul language. Would you consider it foul if I accused your mother of doing that? Then it is foul, troll.

No "twisting" anything fool.
I wrote something, directed NOT at you, about how this game will help show Miami has improved. You twisted it into making a claim that UNC is not a REAL team. (ESPN says they are, are you sure YOU are not hallucinating when you claim they are fictional or imaginary?)

"Fact is UNC sucks arse THIS year, who cares what happened last year, or 20 years ago fool."
You apparently do, because you are still here, DAILY, to attack a team that embarrassed you 20 years ago.

"Fact is they lost to East Carolina, a doormat you pay to come to your stadium to beat up."
So East Carolina was paid to go to UNC? Are you SURE you are not the one hallucinating? And UNC has reciprocated and gone to East Carolina. Sure doesn't look like a paid for patsie like oh lets say the Citadel or Montana State.

"So my prediction and guarantee of a cane victory is a very educated prediction and a very possible guarantee, very likely to happen."
Do you even know what the word guarantee means? "a very possible guarantee"? LOL!

"What do you not understand?"
I don't understand why you still troll this site even after your team is ending it's rivalry with us.

"It is NORTH Carolina. You are not playing South Carolina, that is a real team. Wrong Carolina for you."
Ahh, here we go, SEC SEC SEC!

"Actually the right one. Another pansy. That is what you play this year, pansies. Easy to go undefeated by playing 90% pansies year in and out."
Yep, you would know. That's why you dropped Miami in place of Citadel and Montana State in the first place, right?

"Amazing you have never won the ACC while playing all these pansies. Maybe this is the year."
oooh, struck a nerve, what happened to not dicussing the past? Yousure find it convenient when it helps your hate, right troll?

"Then again, Golden has been known to lose to pansies every year he has been at UM. That is another FACT for you."
Actually, that would be an opinion, not a fact. Do you even know what a pansie is? It is a violet flower, and Al Golden has not lost to any violet flowers. THAT is a fact, troll.

"Who will be the pansie that beats you this year?"
Sure won't be you, loser. You lost yet again.

Yes, he is an icon, and as such should not be worshipped.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idolatry

Fact Check, you truly seem to be an enlightened one. After Nov 2nd, you will argue that FSU was not a real team either because they almost lost a close one to BC.

I trust the coaches with starting Morris. IIRC, Williams threw an interception at USF during garbage time.

You tell them trolls Five, you own them, you da man!
Way to put them in their place, I mean hurling personal insults at you. The nerve!
The Great Golden One has not lost to any purple flowers ever. In fact he is undefeated against all kinds of flowers. How do you like that fact Mr fact Check?
Fact is I will bring some pink flowers to the Great One next home game. I will also paint flowers next to the U logo on all the tarps at the stadium.
5, I stand with you !

"almost lost a close one to BC."

Nothing wrong with that, it is a W. That is what counts.
What doesn't count is an "almost win" or a "close loss". Those are cane code phrases to make a L look better. Still a loss. Get with the program.
BTW, no matter what Five Titles says, UNC sucks.
Just the FACTS.

delUsionalcane--Fact Check...the same moron!

All I am saying Al Golden preached all last year that we have to use the TE more, Williams came out and showed we do have a TE, Morris needs to be a team player and hit the short stuff to control the ball more and let our D rest, AL GOLDEN IS A SMART MAN AND LAST YEAR BEFORE EVERY GAME HE WOULD SAY WE HAVE TO FIND THE TE MORE>>>>> CLUE IT DIDNT HAPPEN....LIKE I SAID OUR TEAM IS LOADED, WANT MORE BALL CONTROL, Morris is NFL talent cuz his arm strength, does not move good, A 30 YARD PASS TO THE SIDE IS USUALLY OVER THROWN LIKE THE FLORIDA GAME AND PICKED OFF, REMEBER THE FLORIDA GAME IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 3 INTERCEPTIONS NOT ONE...AND THE LINE PLAYED GREAT....PLAIN AND SIMPLE HE HAS NO TOUCH....DO I THINK WE CAN GO 12 - 0 WITH HIM YES, IN THE ACC OUR OFFENSE SHOULD DOMINATE REST OF THE SCHEDULE, THE ONLY WAY OUR OFFENSE STALLS IS MORRIS MISSING WIDE OPEN RECEIVERS LIKE HE DID AGAINST A GOOD FLORIDA D IN THE 2ND QUARTER>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THEY WERE 20 YARD PASSES WIDE OPEN...Look at 3rd down percentage passing with him at QB, we were ranked around 100 before the GT game, and those were easy teams except Florida and that game the took the ball out of his hands in the 2nd half

Despite Calvin’s ridiculous and skewed Jacory Harris/Stephen Morris comparisons I was and always will be a Jacory Fan. And yes, I have posted things that were not complimentary to Jacory to refute Calvin’s ignorant Jacory/Morris assertions.

Harris’ never lost a game at Northwestern High School. With one minute left in the 2007 6A state semifinal game against a very good Deerfield Beach team, Jacory led the Bulls on a 99-yard game winning drive. If you watched that game you know that when Jacory took the field for that final possession his body language sent a loud and clear message that the Bulls were going to win, and they did courtesy of a drive that may be the best ever in Florida high school championship play.

Jacory had as much, if not more heart, confidence and killer instinct than most any player I’ve watched play the game at any level. When he came into games to take over for Robert Marve you would see that the whole team would get a lift…they believed in his leadership and believed he would find a way to win.

Unfortunately, Jacory was not equipped with the physical tools to be a phenomenal QB and also was not blessed with a coaching staff that could coach him to be a better player. And that lack of coaching extended to the players around him who consistently failed Jacory on the field.

Had Al Golden and his staff coached Jacory from his freshmen year on his legacy would be vastly different and we would all be sharing stories about all the great things Jacory accomplished while a Cane.

The following are the things that we Canes should be talking about when speaking of Jacory—yes, you can point out the Ohio State game and others where Jacory made inexplicable decisions, but those mistakes, once again in my view, were directly the fault of the coaching staff. Read on:

*No. 3: Oct. 18, 2008 at Duke: The Hurricanes were staring at an embarrassing loss, trailing 24-14 in the third quarter. Harris, who was splitting snaps, took over for an ineffective Robert Marve. He threw three second-half touchdowns and ran for another in a 49-31 victory on the road. For the game, Harris completed 18 of 28 passes for 185 yards and accounted for five scores.

*No. 2: Oct. 31, 2009 at Wake Forest: With UM down by six points, Harris came to the rescue again. He led the Hurricanes on an 82-yard drive that was capped by a 13-yard touchdown pass to receiver Travis Benjamin with 1:08 left in the game. The drive included UM converting a third-and-long and an improbable 4th-and-16. On fourth down, Harris received a bit of help with receiver Aldarius Johnson making a leaping catch for a 29-yard gain.

*No. 1: Nov. 1 at Virginia: Down 17-10, Harris led a 15-play, 95-yard drive to force overtime. The tying touchdown, a 26-yard pass to receiver LaRon Byrd, came on a 3rd-and-15. Harris also converted a 3rd-and-13 on the drive. In overtime, Harris' five-yard touchdown to Johnson proved to be the difference in the 24-17 victory that made the Hurricanes bowl-eligible. After the game, Harris compared the comeback to his senior season in high school when he led Miami Northwestern on a 99-yard winning drive in the state semifinals.

Would Jacory ever have been the all-around high quality QB that Stephen Morris is today? No! But had he been blessed with our current high quality coaching staff and the team that Coach Golden has developed today Jacory would be a lock for the UM Hall of Fame.

The fact is SH is an immature, egotistical, prima donna who has not been what the coaches need or want. He has been suspended 3 times-how many does it take before the coaches realize he is a dysfunctional brat
If he played for Lou Saban he would have been gone a long time ago. Enough is enough-dismiss him and maybe the Raiders can sign him as a free agent.

Five Titles,

Guess again... I don't post under a different name so whoever wrong again is anybody's guess but he's not me. I never said that Golden doesn't get any credit for Kaaya's commitment (I'd rather wait until he signs his LOI), I was just simply pointing out that Ron Zook was full of it by saying that Golden had been recruiting Kaaya BEFORE he had hired Coley. Everybody knows that the head coach has final say on whether they extend an scholarship offer to a recruit or not. If some guys want to give Golden the credit for Kaaya then it's hypocritical to give Mark Whipple all of the credit for Stephen Morris as Shannon had final say on whether they extended an offer to him or not.

Calvin,

I actually spoke with my friend about a week ago who's brother Jason is a producer at ESPN and they haven't found any UM commercials with Shalala saying that during any UM games broadcast on ABC or ESPN. The only thing they found is what I already posted.. her comments to Manny Navarro and of course the press conference after the FIU brawl. If you could narrow down the search to any season then please be my guest but I have searched Google Archives and a qoute tank search engine and there's nothing associated with Shalala saying that in a UM commercial.
