Canes Getting Healthy, Coach Returns to Team


UM head coach Randy Shannon said today linebacker Darryl Sharpton and defensive tackles Dwayne Hendricks, Teraz McCray and Antonio Dixon are expected to play against the Aggies on Thursday night. All either missed or were limited in the last game.

"We got all those guys back," Shannon said.

Someone else that's back: Running backs coach Tommie Robinson.

He left the team the week before the FIU game – his father was dying, and when he found out he says Shannon gave him immediate permission to leave the team.

Robinson got to his father, who died the next day.

"It was tough, real tough," said Robinson, who returned to UM yesterday.

Robinson had never missed a game before.

"First time in my life," he said. "I've been coaching ball over 20 years, never missed a game. I didn't even get a chance to watch the FIU game - it was ESPNU and my parents don't have that service. I was on my little phone, on the Internet with play by play. They would say, `Kyle Wright incomplete.' They wouldn't say, `Jerrell Mabry missed the ball.' I didn't know what was going on.

"I tell you what surprised me – I didn't know Shawnbrey (McNeal) was going to play. When I looked at my phone it said Shawnbrey carried the ball. I was like, `Wow, what are they doing?' I was really happy to see he carried the ball, he and Lee Chambers. Lee got a kickoff return. It was a little different for me missing games, missing practice and being around here. But that's part of life. It's something we all have to do. I really missed it. I'm just happy to be back."

* Shannon says he isn't talking to any potential transfers. He says they have to get a release before he'll talk to them.

With rumors swirling around Deonte Thompson possibly transferring - despite some media outlets that have debunked the possibility - Shannon was asked if he would accept any transfers.

"It depends who it is," Shannon said. "I don't worry about things like that right now."

* Shannon said there is no update on Robert Marve, who is working the scout team and taking snaps with a soft cast on his left wrist with a glove over that, or on Jermaine McKenzie, who is not yet cleared to wear a helmet and practice (he is recovering from a neck injury).

* LB Glenn Cook is out of a protective boot, but there is no word on when he might return to practice.

* Patrick Nix's wife is expecting their fourth child - the due date is tomorrow.

Canes High on 4 Star DB's List


Waco (TX) High School safety Victor Johnson is busy concentrating on his senior season.

So his coach, Johnny Tusa, has asked that he not do media interviews.

But Tusa does say the Canes are among the frontrunners for the talented 6-foot-1, 170-pounder.

"He likes Miami, he likes Oklahoma State and he likes Texas A&M - those three for sure," Tusa said. "Miami, he's said that it's intriguing to him."

The Hurricanes have offered Johnson a scholarship, and defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff is recruiting him.

"Coach McGriff was at Baylor, so there's that connection there," Tusa said.

Johnson hasn't set up any official visits yet, according to Tusa.

And that's the way Tusa likes it.

He doesn't like his players making early commitments.

"We're very much opposed to early commitments because that harms us," Tusa said. "If you knew you weren't going to work your job, that you already had another job two or three months down the road, sometimes you'll be looking too futuristically. And let's say you have a little injury, you're not going to want to risk that. We've seen that work against us."

Tusa knows whatever program lands Johnson will have a tremendous prospect.


"He's just an energetic, talented young man that enjoys playing the game and plays it at a rapid pace," Tusa said. "He has the motor of a kid that played for us, plays for the Chiefs, (linebacker) Derrick Johnson."

A good example came this past week: "He came in on a punt and knocked the personal protector back to the punter," Tusa said. "The next time the personal protector kind of dodged him. There's incident after incident. One thing about an outstanding player – what is extraordinary becomes ordinary. You almost take that for granted.

"He'll always `Oh, wow' you. And especially on special teams because he's a very unselfish person that excels not only at safety, but trying to block punts and running back kicks."

Academics could factor in for Johnson, as he is likely to be a borderline qualifier.

"To his credit he is trying to focus really hard on his academics," Tusa said.

Woooo! We whooped an a.ss. Whole game was good. Cooper is really coming out man. He is one fast kid. Our defense was so nice tonight too. Even Kyle Wright looked good and so did our receiving core, finally. I liked the use of tight ends too, we need more of that. Great game. I think this may get us ranked.

Wright is doing really well. He missed on a few deep balls but when the pass wasn't there he threw it away. Didn't agree with a lot of the play calling but Nix is getting better. Thats the D-Line I expect to see and you see my n*gga McNeal out there? Kid needs more reps

Finally a Big Win: Canes Defeat Texas A&M

The naysayers can lay off.

At least for a week or two.

The Hurricanes and first-year coach Randy Shannon have a win over a top 20 team.

And an impressive win at that.


The Canes jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead against Texas A&M and went on to win in front of 44,622 fans, 34-17.

"That was a big victory for us tonight," coach Randy Shannon said. "It was an opportunity to bounce back from earlier this season in playing a good opponent in Texas A&M.

"It was a team effort. The guys played hard, they played well. It was a Thursday night game in prime time where the nation could see what we really have as the University of Miami football team."

Miami's offense managed 402 yards in the game, 275 through the air.

Quarterback Kyle Wright was on top of his game – he completed 21 of 26 passes for 275 yards for two touchdowns with no interceptions.

"We were 1?6 against ranked opponents in the last year or two," Wright said. "We knew Texas A&M was a great team, that their defense was tough. We knew we had to jump on them early, and it got a big win for us."

The running game was led by Graig Cooper's 50 yards on seven rushing attempts. He added four receptions for 34 yards.

Javarris James carried for 46 yards on 20 carries.

"We knew they were going to be a tough defense," James said. "They made the running game a lot harder. We had to be patient. Graig Cooper broke some big runs; I pounded. I have to take my hat off to the passing game. They came through."

The team's leading receiver was Sam Shields, with 117 yards on six receptions.

"We knew we had this in us – the receivers made plays and I knew if I gave them the ball we would be successful in the passing game," Wright said. "That is what happened tonight."

Miami's defense had a big task in this game: Trying to slow down tailback Mike Goodson and mobile quarterback Stephen McGee.

Mission accomplished.

Goodson had nine carries for 29 yards; McGee rushed for 39 yards.

McGee hit on 11 of 20 passes for 109 yards.

"We came out early and really played physical because we wanted to set a tone early," end Calais Campbell said. "We wanted to show everyone how good of a defense we really have, and I think we did a really good job of doing that tonight."

Linebacker Colin McCarthy added, "I don't think we were communicating as well as we should have in the first couple of games this season. That's something we've really been working on, and I think we did a good job today. You can see the difference when we communicate and when we don't."

The recap:

After stopping Texas A&M three-and-out to start the game, the Canes converted a couple of first downs and then faced a fourth-and-one at the Aggie 47. Shannon opted to go for it, and a Wright sneak picked up the first down.

The drive ended with a touchdown on a direct snap to Cooper, who ran in from seven yards out.

Wright was six-for-eight on the drive, and one of those incompletions was a drop.

It was an 18-play, 80-yard drive that took 8:51 off the clock.

With 3:29 left in the quarter it was 7-0 Miami.

"That was great to come out and execute," Wright said. "It was great to be able to go up and down the field like that and cap it off with a touchdown."

Texas A&M faced a fourth-and-one from the UM 40 on its ensuing drive.

And, like the Canes, the Aggies went for it.

Also like UM, Texas A&M converted.

A big difference: The drive ended without a score. Back-to-back quarterback pressures by Campbell and Vegas Franklin forced a pooch punt.

UM's next drive ended with a turnover when Cooper fumbled on a third-and-long play, and Texas A&M recovered at the Cane 39.

But the Miami defense held, forcing a 50-yard Matt Szymanski field goal attempt that missed.

On the second play of the Canes's ensuing drive Wright hooked up with Sam Shields on a 51-yard bomb that took the Canes down to the Texas A&M 13-yard line.

On a third-and-two play from the three yard line Javarris James lined up at quarterback with Wright split wide. James ran up the middle and came up short by a yard.

On fourth-and-one the Canes went for it.

And James again lined up at quarterback. He took the direct shotgun snap and dove forward for a first down at the two.

Two plays later James broke through the line for a touchdown.

With 4:53 remaining in the first half it was a 14-0 Miami lead.

The Canes weren't about to sit on that. On the third play of the Aggies' next drive McCarthy grabbed a deflected pass and rumbled 30 yards up the left sideline to the A&M 22.

The drive stalled at the 18, and Francesco Zampogna hooked a 35-yard field goal wide right.

It remained a 14-0 game with 1:43 on the clock.

As remarkable as it sounds, the Canes scored 10 points in that span.

With 33 seconds left the Aggies fumbled, and Calais Campbell recovered at the A&M 12-yard line. On first down Cooper took a swing pass and sped upfield, splitting two defenders while diving into the end zone.

The Aggies fumbled the ensuing kickoff, giving Miami the ball at the Aggie39 with 17 seconds left.

A Cooper screen pass took the ball to the 28 with nine seconds left. Two plays later Zampogna hit a 45-yard field goal.

The Canes entered the locker room with a 24-0 lead.

And all the momentum in the world.

That momentum continued with a 40-yard bomb to Lance Leggett on the first play of the second half. But the drive stalled.

Neither team got anything going until the end of the third quarter.

A 14-yard run by Cooper combined with a Shields 36-yard catch and a 15-yard roughing penalty put UM at the Texas A&M 7.

On first down Cooper lined up in shotgun and got the direct snap but went nowhere. On second down Chris Zellner caught a seven-yard touchdown pass in the middle of the end zone.

It was a 31-0 Cane lead.

"I just sat down in my spot," Zellner said. "Coach (Patrick) Nix said it was going to happen like that. But I have to say I took it from Dedrick (Epps). He was supposed to be in, but he let me go in that play. I'd like to say `Thank you' to Dedrick."

The Aggies finally got on the scoreboard early in the fourth quarter on a nine-play, 39-yard drive that culminated with a 32-yard field goal.

With 11:40 remaining in the game it was a 31-3 Cane lead.

Cooper fumbled on Miami's next possession, giving Texas A&M the ball at the UM 39. The Aggies got a touchdown on a sneak by Stephen McGee.

With 8:03 left it was a 31-10 game.

With 2:07 remaining Zampogna hammered home a 23-yard field goal to make it 34-10.

Martellus Bennett hauled in a 33-yard touchdown at the end of the game for the final margin.

The win gives Miami a confidence boost entering the ACC schedule.

"We have confidence, and I think that this is going to get us on a roll a little bit," Wright said. "We have to take it and run."

Zellner added, "It's huge. We didn't do a great job at Oklahoma. But we know we're a great football team. And we went out tonight and made a statement. It's a great feeling."

The bottom line after the win?

"I'm pleased with the victory, but I just said in the locker room, `You've got tonight and tomorrow and we'll go back Sunday and get ready for our next opponent, which is Duke,'" Shannon said. "Those guys have to stay focused and understand that."

* Miami's 24-0 halftime lead was the largest against a ranked opponent since the Canes played No. 14 Syracuse in 2001.

* Daren Daly returned to his job as kickoff specialist but struggled on several attempts.

* Entering this game Miami was 13-1 in Thursday night games over the last 21 years. The team's last loss on a Thursday night was Sept. 18, 1997 against Pittsburgh, 21-17.

* Six native Texans joined Calais Campbell and Derrick Morse as captains for the game: Kirby Freeman, DajLeon Farr, Shawnbrey McNeal, Jason Fox, Tyrone Byrd and Reggie Youngblood.

* Fans cheered Shannon's name during the game.

"They're my buddies up there," Shannon said. "I like them. It is good, but you know what? That's all about what Miami is about – we're family."

Cane Fans Woo Streeter at Texas A&M Game



Chants of "Tommy, Tommy, Tommy," rained down from the Orange Bowl faithful at the end of tonight's victory over Texas A&M.

One fan yelled, `Tommy, stay home baby.'

Cane fans were wooing Miami Northwestern receiver Tommy Streeter, who attended the game with Cane commitments Marcus Forston, Sean Spence and Jacory Harris.

Streeter told CaneSport that he was surprised at the notoriety he received.

"You feel love, like a family," Streeter said. "But my decision is still not made up yet."

Streeter went in the locker room after the game.

"The game was exciting," Streeter said. "When we walked through the stands the fans were screaming our names, telling us to come to UM, make a big contribution here."

Does a game like this make him want to be a Cane more?

"Yeah," Streeter said. "The fans are the best. In the midst of them winning this game, you've got the fans supporting them, saying if you come here this can happen to you too. It's a good feeling."

Harris said of his time in the Orange Bowl that "We just had fun. This showed that Miami's ready to play. When we come out here we'll make a difference, and right now they're doing a good job."

Forston added, "The defense came out swarming 110 percent. It was amazing how the fans knew each one of us. They know we're a family now, that we're committed to the University of Miami. And they showed us great love."

Harris and Forston are working Streeter hard to get him to Miami in the end.

"Every day I hear it," Streeter said. "Every day in practice they say, `Come to the U. We need you.' I say I'm not sure yet, that I haven't made up my mind, have a lot to think about. There's so much pressure. This process is not easy."

When will he make a final decision?

"Probably after the season," Streeter said.

* Streeter clarified that he did not throw up a `U' at the Soutlake Carroll game. He crossed his arms.
