Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
The Florida State game Monday night marked the highly anticipated debut of new coordinator Rich Olson's offense.


Olson doesn't shirk blame for UM's 134-yard output vs. FSU
So it shocked many that the results were the same as past offenses that struggled under Dan Werner.

Look beneath the surface, and there were changes -- the formations were different, the personnel was utilized differently and the play-calling was more aggressive.

That's right, more aggressive.

So why did it seem to be a short, horizontal passing game instead of the vertical passing game Olson had told reporters he envisioned?

Olson said quarterback Kyle Wright opted for shorter sure-fire completions instead of risking some of the downfield options.

"We had some chances to take some shots, and I don't think Kyle took some of the shots he needed to take," Olson said. "There were a couple of times we could have thrown the ball down the field and we didn't. It wasn't the pass protection. He had plenty of time, and he pulled the ball down and ran a couple of times. That's just part of being willing to trust putting that ball out there to those guys and giving them a chance."

Olson adds that the stagnant offense "is not Kyle Wright's fault."

Olson reserves the fault for someone else.

Himself.

"It's my fault," he said. "I need to find some other ways for [the quarterbacks] to make better decisions to get the ball to those guys. I didn't make good enough adjustments in the middle of the third quarter to take advantage of what I knew they were doing."

One thing the Seminoles were doing was taking away tight end Greg Olsen.

Olsen finished with two catches for eight yards.


When Greg Olsen is taken out of the game with double teams, Rich Olson wants Kyle Wright to find his WRs downfield
"I think a couple of times [Wright] looked too much for Greg," Olson said. "He was being doubled. They double him, and you throw it to the other guys.

"They had [Lawrence] Timmons on him and a safety on him on some of the verticals. They put themselves in position to take some of the routes away from him. If that's happening, then the outside guys should be getting the ball. There's no reason to throw the ball to a guy getting doubled. That didn't make sense. We need to throw the ball more to the outside guys."

Olson called the plays from the sidelines in the game, watching up close as the offense was stifled with just 134 total yards, two yards rushing, and 10 points.

All of Miami's points came in the second quarter. After halftime the team had just 17 yards.

"In the first half I thought we did some awfully good things," Olson said. "We were able to take advantage of some of the field position, and we knocked the ball in the end zone and had a 10-3 lead at the half.

"We thought we made some adjustments at halftime, but when we came out in the second half we had far too many negative plays. That really was the difference in the game -- we had negative plays on first and second down that put us in bad third down situations, and we never changed the field position. Those two things k!lled us."

Olson singled out two areas for praise: The performance of the receivers and the pass protection from the offensive line.

But he did say both could have fared better.

"Lance [Leggett] played extremely well, [Darnell Jenkins] made some plays," Olson said. "But the consistency, they just haven't done it all enough. Part of it is everything we do in practice rises against press coverage. And so the times they get to run against air isn't like running it in a game when there is a guy off of you but he's driving on you and those kinds of things. From that point I think we were just a little inconsistent in that area."

In other words, the timing on a route can be thrown off when a receiver doesn't battle to get off the line like he does in practice.

Olson says Wright had time to find the receivers -- the offensive line's pass protection was solid for the most part.

But another faulty area was the run-blocking.

"They played good defense at times," Olson said. "There was a bad decision on the nine-yard loss by Charlie Jones. And Greg Olsen made some mental errors in some blocking schemes. You could finger anyone on any play..."

That mantra sounds similar to what the old Cane coaching staff used to call the "TAT" offense -- "Take A Turn" making mistakes on offense.


Olson said he was happy with the pass protection from the O-line
Told that some think this year's offense in the season-opener looked a lot like last year's, Olson simply responded, "I don't care what it looks like. I'm just disappointed that when we had eight-and-a-half minutes left that we didn't respond. We had a penalty, a fumble -- that is as much devastating (as anything). We weren't out of the football game. We didn't respond. To me, some of it was immaturity. Some of it was just miscommunication."

Olson doesn't plan on letting much more miscommunication occur.

Asked if he thinks the FSU game will be the worst the offense looks this year, Olson said, "Yes, without a doubt. We've got to play better."

* In news from today's practice, coach Larry Coker said LT Reggie Youngblood has been ruled out of this weekend's game.

Youngblood has a sprained ankle and is in a walking boot.

He wasn't on the practice field today as he receives treatment.

"Hopefully he's back for Louisvlle," Coker said. "We anticipate him back."

Chris Rutledge will start in place of Youngblood.

Coker also said RB Tyrone Moss will not play on Saturday.

"He didn't do much work today," Coker said. "He should be fine the following game, but we'll make that determination next week."

Coker said there is no change in the status of WR Ryan Moore's indefinite suspension.

"We'll wait and see how (the police matter) is settled," Coker said. "It could be a number of weeks (before that happens)."

Damien Berry highlight video

Talk about it in The Storm Center
Belle Glade (Fla.) Glades Central High School athlete Damien Berry is a Cane commitment.


So it was hard for him to watch Miami lose after driving down to the Orange Bowl on Monday night.

"There were 10 or 11 of us from my school that went there," Berry said. "I was really upset (Miami lost). I expected Miami to go down the field with a minute left. I was like, `Man, they're going to score.' The clock ticked down and I was like `Oh, man.'"

Berry says he was glad to see the Cane defense do well.

He is likely to play defensive back at Miami, although he says he could also play running back.

He spoke with Javarris James and Randy Phillips in the locker room after the game.

"I was telling Randy (who is a Belle Glade native) about our defense, who we have this weekend," Berry said. "With Javarris I asked how it feels to be in the fire for the first time. He said he was nervous at first, but he got used to it."

Berry also spoke with coaches before the game.

"I talked to (Mario) Cristobal, (Larry) Coker, (Andreu) Swasey, all of them," Berry said. "Coach Cristobal said, `DB, you're a beast out there, you're like a grown man.'"

Berry doesn't expect the recruiting effect of the loss to be major.

"The defense was f!ghting," he said. "I was talking with DeMarcus Vandyke (who is also a Cane commitment). He was there and we were saying `Man, can you believe it? Next year it's going to be us out there.' We can't believe it."

Berry says he's trying to sway some of his ultra-talented teammates to UM with him.

"I'm trying hard," he said. "I think I'll get them."

Berry's had a strong start to his season.

This past week he had a 61-yard TD run and had another score called back. He finished with 99 rushing yards on eight carries.

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Hurricane players are growing tired of answering questions about the Florida State loss.


A good example: DT Kareem Brown was asked Sept. 7 about the lack of sacks against Florida State.

What happened?

Brown's not saying.

"I'm on FAMU right now, man," Brown said. "We have a long season left, 11 games left. We have to take it one game at a time. Florida State's behind us."

Brown says the team is anxious to get back on the field against FAMU on Saturday.

"We're real hungry, are practicing like it," Brown said. "I'm happy with the tempo of practice. Everyone's practicing hard. We're looking toward FAMU."

It's all about FAMU for now.

One game at a time.

The biggest game: The next one.

"We're looking to execute against FAMU, do the little things we didn't do last week," Brown said. "Defensively we want to get more pressure on the quarterback, execute every play like we know we can."

Brown wants to see more big plays from the defense.

"We should have scored on defense (against FSU), unfortunately we didn't," Brown said. "We're always looking to score, help out the offense any way we can."

Brown says he hopes fans come out to support the team this weekend at the Orange Bowl despite the loss.

"I hope they do," Brown said. It's only one game. The more support we get, the better we'll play. I want the fans to rally behind us and stay tough with us and hang with us.

"We'll make you guys proud."

Brown says he's trying to avoid what's being said in the media about this team, although he says his father has filled him in on some of the gory details.

"You kind of get frustrated with it -- as a fan you don't know every intricate detail going on," Brown said. "Sometimes they say comments they shouldn't say. A fan is going to be a fan. I'm a player, and we have to do everything right.

* Of FAMU's offense, Brown said, "They have a quarterback that can run, also a couple of good receivers. We're going to be looking for them to do any and everything. We're looking for all things from FAMU."

Rivals.com College Football Columnist
• Florida State 13, Miami 10
Game Highlights
• The College Football Wire
Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:

MIAMI – A storm rolled in from the Atlantic and doused the Orange Bowl on Monday night, providing temporary relief from the South Florida heat.

But not even a torrential downpour figures to cool the proverbial hot seat that Miami football coach Larry Coker is on; the one that got even hotter after the Hurricanes went cold in the second half and fell to upstate rival Florida State 13-10.

Leading by a touchdown at halftime, the Hurricanes managed just 17 yards of offense in the second half and gave up several big plays on defense to absorb another close loss to the Seminoles.

Now, that's a tropical depression.

The Hurricanes feel they're legitimate national championship contenders with one of the nation's premier defenses, an experienced quarterback in Kyle Wright, a potential All-America with tight end Greg Olsen and talented running backs. But they've already used their mulligan. One more loss and it's another failure in the eyes of the spoiled Hurricanes fans who advocate Coker's ouster.


Larry Coker still feels he has a very good team, but is that enough?
"I want to make sure our fans don't give up on this football team," Coker said after the loss. "This is going to be a very good football team."

No argument there. But good isn't good enough in Coral Gables, where championships aren't just expected, they're demanded. The vocal locals appear to have given up on Coker.

Amid the shouts of jubilant cheers and vulgar insults that echoed through the Orange Bowl as time ticked away, one could almost hear the unrest of rumors that Coker's job is in jeopardy. Athletic Director Paul Dee has staunchly refuted those rumors, but the fact that Coker replaced a half dozen a.ssistant coaches in the offseason would seem to give merit to the buzz. Firing a.ssistants is typically the first step in the quest to regain job security.

Still, the most curious aspect of those rumors is that they exist. Even after falling to Florida State again, Miami is 53-10 under Coker - including a national championship won just five years ago. In fact, he would have two national titles under his belt had official Terry Porter not made a late and bogus pass interference call that extended the 2002 championship game in which Ohio State eventually prevailed.

But national championships just don't buy as much security as it once did. Ask Michigan's Lloyd Carr. Ask Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer. Ask Penn State's Joe Paterno.

Coker's last two teams had the audacity to lose three times, and that doesn't sit well with fans that have celebrated five national championships since 1983. But release Coker and see how fast he'll get snatched up by a program eager to hire a proven winner with personal integrity and no track record of NCAA issues.

Miami had thwarted everything Florida State tried on offense until Seminoles quarterback Drew Weatherford completed two passes on third-and-10 on a late third quarter drive. The result was a one-yard touchdown plunge on the first play of the fourth quarter.

Weatherford passed the Seminoles into game-winning field goal range on their next possession.

"In a game like this you have got to make plays and we weren't able to," Miami linebacker Tavares Gooden said. "You should want to make big plays. You should go to bed at night thinking about making big plays."

Critics suggest the Hurricanes don't make plays like they once did because Coker is too nice a guy and Miami has lost its intimidating attitude under his regime. More likely, the Hurricanes have lost their bad reputation. Coker suspended two starters from Monday's game including running back Tyrone Moss - who might be back next week - and receiver Ryan Moore, who might not be back at all.

But in the post-game locker room the Hurricanes were more defiant than defeated.

"This was a tough loss and it isn't going to sit right with us," safety Kenny Phillips said. "We are going to come back, regroup and get better."

Offensive lineman Anthony Wollschlager was even more to the point.

"This loss does not, and will not, define this team," he said.

It shouldn't define its coach either.
