That's true but regardless you don't call a kid out like that. He does suck, though. I still laugh at the thoughts of some of y'all thinkin' this little f*g**t was gonna be a better player than Percy Harvin.
Didnt Urban Meyer call out his seniors like last year.

“Well, for those guys who just put in their time and didn’t make any real contributions, it’s time for you to go. It won’t be hard to say goodbye to some of those guys who just went through the motions. Now for those kids who actually bought into the program, and who made some sacrifices and contributions — you know, like Bubba Caldwell….he’s a graduate of UF and had a great career — you’ll really miss those guys. But just because you’re a senior doesn’t mean you have any value.”

why would you play for this guy?

Gee I don't know, playing for a coach who helped lead a team that lacked a winning attitude and turn them into national champions might have something to do with it. He's no Randy Shannon but he's not bad. That last sentence is sarcasm by the way.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Robert Marve is hoping to get some wins under his belt.

Marve, a first-year starter as a redshirt freshman, is 1-3 as the starting quarterback including two tough losses to ACC opponents--North Carolina and Florida State.

He'll get another shot this weekend against Central Florida.

"My biggest goal is winning the game and I haven't been able to do that as much I have wanted to here so far, but it is a young time in my career and I'll keep working, watching more film, and I'll be ready for anything Central Florida can throw at me."

Marve has thrown for 538 yards and five touchdowns with five interceptions in his four games. His passing efficiency of 105.32 ranks 10th in the ACC.

Coach Shannon says he has seen improvement from Marve on a week-to-week basis.

"He is just getting better with everything he is doing on offense, learning the offense, executing the offense, and doing those kinds of different things," coach Randy Shannon said.

The re-building of a program is something Marve went through in high school at Plant, who ended up winning the Class 4A title when he was a senior after a rough start.

"It was exactly like this," Marve said. "It's really hard to explain that (to my teammates). How do you explain so someone it's okay to lose. It's not. I do talk to my high school coach all of the time that this team reminds me of my younger high school times and how you have to really build a base around you. This game is so great because you see how teams are that have been playing together for three or four years."

Last week, Miami lost a close battle against Florida State, 41-39 as the Canes trailed 24-0 in the second quarter.

Marve said he was surprised by the speed of the Florida State defense, which was similar to Florida's, and was not prepared for what the Seminoles did on defense.

"They threw a lot of different coverages at us that we even thought," Marve said. "What we thought going in and what they showed us were two very different things, but we kind of got a hold of it in the second half. They did a great job on defense on changing up what they did. They threw a lot at us."

This week against UCF, Marve's offensive line will have a different look for a while as RT Reggie Youngblood could be out for the season with a leg injury. Chris Rutledge will start in his place for the second straight week.

"(Rutledge) is doing great, I really trust Rut," Marve said. "Me and Rut have had a relationship outside of football by having class together. We have talked a lot about protections and different things. He really seems he has it all down."

UCF is tied for third nationally with 10 interceptions led by a trio of senior defensive backs who each have two.

"I just think they are solid players and work really well together," Marve said.

UCF comes into the game with a 2-3 record after defeating SMU 31-17 last week.

"They are going to have guys that are ready to play," Marve said. "It is an in-state game and any time you have that, you have guys that played against each other in high school. It's going to be a big game. They are going to come down here pumped up."

Following the UCF game, Miami goes back into conference play as they face Duke, Wake Forest, and Virginia in their next three games.

"Play for pride. That's how is see it," Marve said. "Everyone is saying what if this and what if that. We have some games ahead of us still left. The biggest thing for me is the reason why we all play this game is for pride. Even when we were little, I would ask myself what got me started off playing football is because of pride. For the love of the game and just keep playing. We are only five games in."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The most glaring statistic in Miami's three losses this season is the third-down conversion defense.

Against Florida, North Carolina, and Florida State, Miami has allowed opponents to convert 54 percent of their third down opportunities.

From 2001-2006, Miami never allowed opponents to convert more than 33 percent of third downs in a season.

Miami's secondary has also allowed an average of 226 passing yards per game and five touchdowns in the three losses.

After allowing Florida State to convert 11-of-17 third downs against FSU, third down defense has been a big point of emphasis this week at practice.

"If we don't correct that, then it is going to be a long season for us," Head Coach Randy Shannon said. "This week we are [working] on third down defense."

Miami senior cornerback Bruce Johnson says Miami's defensive backs have worked on covering receivers as long as the play takes to end. Cornerbacks are usually expected to cover receivers for four seconds, but Johnson says it is when plays break down when receivers are getting open.

"What it all boils down to is we still have to cover," Johnson said. "No mater how long it takes. We shouldn't have our eyes in the backfield until we hear that whistle blow. It all comes down to fundamentals and discipline. We have to keep playing and stay with our guys until the play is over with."

Senior safety Anthony Redd*ck believes the cure to improving the third down defense is just a change in mentality.

"That is the thing that is k!lling us," Redd*ck said. "On first and second down we are stopping them and as you can see most time it is third and long. We have to find a way as a team for everybody to suck it up and get off the field. Third and long is k!lling us as a team."

Redd*ck does recognize that a times the problem is not the effort of the players, it is the communication and at times a lack of understanding of the new defensive scheme.

"It is a lack of communication," Redd*ck said. "When you look on the film, everybody is playing hard, so guys are missing a.ssignments and not being where they are supposed to be."

Each week Miami has found areas that they need to improve defensively and this week the emphasis is on third down. Going into the Texas A&M game, Miami had yet to force a turnover, but since then the defense has come up with six turnovers in three games.

Hopefully, Miami can have similar results and improvements in the coming weeks in third down defense.

"We know what we have to do," Johnson said. "We have to just play a complete game. We can't just play one phase good and another phase bad. We just have to put it all together."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Marcus Forston said it best when it comes to this week's game against Central Florida on Saturday.

"This is a big week. We know we have to win. That's all you want, you got that U on your helmet. That's what we are shooting for every weekend, week in and week out," Forston said.

Unfortunately, the 'Canes are riding a two-game losing streak entering the game against Central Florida with a defense that's reeling after being drilled by FSU which ran wild on it, especially on the ground.

How does that change?

"Basically the fundamentals, mental errors, breakdowns on defense. We were six points away from winning those games. The thing that hurts is those mental errors," Forston said.

Communication has been a problem and that's what has plagued the defense that past couple of games after starting off the season with strong defensive performances.

"Yeah, that's the thing that coach stress, communication is the key. Communicating, no busts, no mental errors. Whatever you got to do to get that corrected, that's a big key," Forston said.

Forston is one of a handful of freshmen getting a lot of playing time on defense so far this season, including Sean Spence and Brandon Harris, but he doesn't believe that he's coming in and made such an impact. He even called himself only average so far.

However, he does believe he came in to a good situation where he could get on the field early and play a lot.

"I wouldn't say it's an impact (we've made), it's coming in at the right time in the right situations. We're doing all we can do for our team," Forston said. "There is always room for improvement. I got to get to be good then go to being great. Right now I am average. I've got a lot of work to do."

One of the biggest adjustments for Forston to get to the point of going from average, to good to great is learning the playbook, something that took some time when the only play he ran in high school in any given week was generally written on the blackboard in the locker room and left there the entire week.

"It was definitely new to me when I got here the Spring. Coming in now, doing all types of things, that was an adjustment. Playbook (in high school)? I don't think I had a playbook. We did our defense on the board and it stayed on the board all week," Forston said. "(At UM) I have a hard folder. I was thinking there is no way I can learn that in less than two weeks, but I got it done. All these calls, boundary calls, strength calls to the boundary, I had never heard of before. When I first got here it was hard, but now everything is at the top of my head."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Freshman Ramon Buchanan made his UM debut last week against Florida State.

Buchanan, a highly touted prospect out of Melbourne, Fla., participated on special teams--kickoff coverage and punt return--and recorded his first career tackle.

"It felt kinda good," said Buchanan with a smile. "When I made my first tackle, it was a pretty big hit, so it felt pretty good. It was pretty exciting. The atmosphere was outstanding."

Buchanan found out on Monday leading up to Saturday's game that he would be playing and his mom and brothers were able to make the trip down to see him play.

Buchanan is expected to continue to play on special teams after missing the first four games.

"He's doing well," coach Randy Shannon said. "He'll continue to play special teams for us and he's getting some reps, learning the defense. He is a guy we expect to do some big things for us at Miami."

Buchanan, a safety, is still working hard in practice with the base defense to be ready to play.

"I'm feeling pretty good," he said. "I'm still working hard in practice until one day hopefully they call my name. I'll be ready."

Buchanan primarily played linebacker in high school at Palm Bay, where he recorded over 100 tackles and three interceptions as a senior.

At UM, he is a 6-foot-1, 197-pound safety.

"It is way different since the first day," Buchanan said. "I'm accustomed now. It's a lot easier now and I'm a lot more comfortable. Before, I was one of the new ones so I had to work harder to get known. Everything was harder, but now everything is slowing down so it seems easier."

He has also adjusted to defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff, who is known for bringing a tough military approach to coaching his unit.

"I'm used to it now," Buchanan said. "At first, he was this military guy, but now he's pretty cool and laid back."
