Despite a 7-4 record and a chance to finish second in the ACC's Coastal Division, the Hurricanes figure to get shut out from the same post-season honors they used to dominate.

It's not like UM doesn't have talent. Ask any coach in the conference and they'll tell you Miami has plenty of it.

The problem is with the Hurricanes' playmakers. There aren't any, at least not on a consistent basis.

To wit:


If Robert Marve hits his average of 116.2 passing yards on Saturday against North Carolina State, he'll end the regular season with 1,278 yards. That will be the lowest total by UM's starting quarterback since 1982.


Aldarius Johnson is on a pace to finish with a team-best 350 receiving yards, which would be the lowest by the team's leading receiver since 1978.


The Hurricanes are unlikely to produce a 1,000-yard rusher for the sixth consecutive season.


UM's current sum of three interceptions ranks last nationally and would be the single-season low in school history.

The Hurricanes face North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson, who has thrown one interception this season and has a streak of 203 consecutive passes without getting picked off.


Marcus Robinson and Allen Bailey, the team leaders in sacks, have four apiece. UM's 26 sacks would rank as the fifth lowest total since 1981.

There are extenuating circumstances for the lack of strong individual performances, including coach Randy Shannon's philosophy of continually rotating players.

The approach is most visible at quarterback, where Marve and fellow freshman Jacory Harris have shared time all season, but it filters down to every position.

"The whole defensive line only plays a certain amount, like 30 plays each," defensive tackle Antonio Dixon said. "You're not going to see any defensive lineman get 80 tackles or 10 sacks a season."

Players and coaches also say that the team's commitment to youth has made the development of consistent go-to guys a slow process.

Freshmen such as Marve, Harris, Johnson, receiver Travis Benjamin (Glades Central), linebacker Sean Spence, cornerback Brandon Harris and defensive linemen Robinson and Marcus Forston all have shown big-play ability, but have either worn down as the season has grown longer or seen their performances fluctuate.

But it's not all on the newbies.

Few of the upperclassmen on UM's roster have provided any more consistency than the team's freshmen.

"I think we miss that veteran that gets us to the next step," Shannon said. "In all the years you've watched Miami, it's always been the veteran guy that, when you need a big play, you'll see Edward Reed come up with an interception or blocked punt or see Sean Taylor do the same thing.

"Those guys were old. It has to be a veteran guy that does those type of things."

Noteworthy: Benjamin, who has left the Hurricanes' past two games with a leg injury, was unable to take part in contact drills during Tuesday's practice and appears unlikely to play against North Carolina State. ... Starting safety Anthony Redd*ck said he will apply to the NCAA for a sixth-year of eligibility. Redd*ck missed most of two seasons with knee injuries.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Head coach Randy Shannon stated during Tuesday's press conference that he wanted to get cornerbacks DeMarcus Van Dke and Brandon Harris more in the mix in Saturday's game against N.C. State.

Now, both players are expecting to start.

"Right now, I am the starting corner--me and Brandon," Van Dke said.

"They want to see us make plays on the ball and tackle guys and get them on the ground," Harris said.

Van Dke, a sophomore, will be replacing senior Bruce Johnson, who has started all 11 games this season. In 11 games, Van Dke has nine tackles and one pass breakup.

Last season, Van Dke started eight of the 12 games and 14 tackles and one pass breakup.

He was expected to start again this year, but was slow coming out of the gate and junior captain Chavez Grant had a very good fall.

"I wasn't really sure what do out there," Van Dke said. "I wasn't confident in my playing ability so I had to come back and do better in practice and I have that down packed."

Harris, who has four starts this season, will replace Chavez Grant, who has started seven including the last two. Harris has 22 tackles, two for a loss, one sack, and three pass breakups in 11 games.

"I don't know the particular reason (for the change), I think they are just giving us a feel and see what we can do and get the job done starting off," Harris said.

Both players were heavily recruited and could be keys in the future at Miami.

"Getting a start is a great feeling, but if you aren't out there producing, then it is pointless," Harris said.

Here is the University of Miami football injury report heading into Thursday night's game against N.C. State:

************************************************** **********************

WR Travis Benjamin -- Ankle -- Doubtful

Comment: Travis Benjamin re-injured his ankle in the first quarter last week after a Georgia Tech player twisted his ankle underneath a pile. Benjamin complained to teammates about the play on the sidelines and did not return.

*********************

S JoJo Nicolas -- Arm -- Doubftul

Comment: Nicolas has been in and out of the lineup in recent weeks, which has opened the door for Ryan Hill. Nicolas is likely to once again take a back seat this week after playing last week against Georgia Tech.


*********************

LB Romeo Davis -- Leg -- Out

Comment: Davis started in favor of Darryl Sharpton last week before suffering a leg injury, which required him to wear a boot. Davis has shown flashes of solid play, but like many of his teammates, had a tough game against Georgia Tech. Sharpton will start in his place.

*********************

LB Jordan Futch -- Head -- Out

Comment: Futch has been in and out of the lineup this season as primarily a player on special teams. It appears Futch is a good candidate to receive a redshirt this season.

*********************

S Randy Phillips -- Leg -- Out

Comment: Phillips had surgery on his leg soon after getting injured on the first play of the game against Texas A&M on Sept. 20. It appears doubtful that Phillips will return to the lineup this season, but he could be eligible for a medical redshirt if he wanted to stay another year at UM.

*********************

DE Eric Moncur -- Leg -- Out for Season

Comment: Moncur injured himself against Florida State on Oct. 4 in the first half and did not return. Coach Shannon said Moncur is out at least three games and probably the rest of the season. Moncur has six tackles and two sacks in four games.

*********************

LB Colin McCarthy -- Shoulder -- Out for Season

Comment: McCarthy, a junior starting weakside linebacker, missed the Florida State game with a shoulder injury and Shannon said he would be out for the season Oct. 5. McCarthy finishes his junior season with 18 tackles, one for a loss, and one force fumble in four games. He will be replaced by freshman Sean Spence in the starting lineup.

*********************

WR Kendal Thompkins -- Arm -- Out for Season

Comment: Thompkins has caught two passes for four yards in two games this year and will be eligible for a medical redshirt.

*********************

WR Tommy Streeter -- Wrist -- Out for Season

Comment: Streeter had season-ending wrist surgery on Aug. 21

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- With Miami trailing 10-0 in the second quarter against Georgia Tech last week, Jacory Harris led the team down the field.

Harris connected with Aldarius Johnson for two first downs on the drive. First, Johnson caught a 15-yard pass to get the ball into Georgia Tech territory.

Facing a 3rd-and-9 situation, Harris threw a pass towards the Miami sideline in which Johnson dove and came down with a 12-yard reception.

But when Miami entered the red zone, Johnson headed to the sideline as he was replaced and had to watch from the sidelines as the team settled for a field goal. Not because he wasn't playing well because clearly he was. But because his time was up.

"It's tough," Johnson said. "But it's a team thing. When I come out, I just root (LaRon) Byrd on. Next time I might have a chance to get in the red zone."

This has been an all-too common occurrence for Miami this season as typically eight receivers have been in the rotation each game, which hurts the continuity of the offense and the development of a go-to receiver.

Johnson says the hardest part with the rotation is: "Adapting to the game, getting comfortable in the game because you get every four (plays). That is really hard to adapt to because you can go out there and have four good plays and come back and sit on the bench. Then come back in and have four alright plays so it's really hard to adapt so quick."

Johnson is clearly the team's best receiver and has the highest upside. He currently leads the team with 30 receptions for 321 yards and three touchdowns.

"I feel I can score a touchdown from anywhere," Johnson said. "I just have to wait until my season comes. When it comes, it comes."

He has shown the ability to score in the rezone this season as he has caught touchdown passes of 4, 6, and 9 yards.

In high school, Johnson caught 32 touchdowns during his final two seasons and caught 148 passes. He's a big-time player that needs the ball in his hands.

For Miami to improve on their passing offense--ranked 81st in the country--it starts with getting Johnson the ball more.

And when the Hurricanes get the ball in the red zone. Hopefully No. 4 is at least in the game.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Robert Marve still has a lot to play for.

Miami is out of the ACC title discussion, but at 7-4, they are looking for a win over N.C. State on Saturday in the regular season finale.

"A lot of people play for pride," Marve said. "When you started off playing as a little kid, you played for pride. You wanted to be the guy on the block, the kid in the neighborhood....and then you wanted to be the guy in your city.

"Obviously, we wanted to be the team of the nation, but this year wasn't the year for all that."

Marve has had his fair share of ups and downs in his first collegiate season. He was suspended for the season opener, but led the team to wins over Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Texas A&M.

In 10 games, Marve has thrown for 1,162 yards and eight touchdowns. He has 11 interceptions, but just two in the last four games.

But Marve won't say if this has been a successful season or not.

"I haven't looked that far down the road yet," Marve said. "We still have another game and a bowl game to figure out how this season is going to end up for us. They're two very big games for us. The Georgia Tech game was a very hard game to lose, but you can't cry over split milk. What's done is done. That will be a great question for me to answer for me when these games are done. But it's a little unfair for me to answer right now."

Coming into the Georgia Tech game, Miami was ranked for the first time in two years, had won five straight and were in control of their destiny in the ACC.

Maybe they weren't ready to handle prosperity just yet. However, Marve disagrees.

"I don't think that at all," Marve said. "We just feel into a trap a little bit. It's one of them games where you have to win when the ball doesn't bounce your way. It seemed like the ball didn't bounce our way the entire game like the Virginia Tech game did with the fumbles. It was a learning experience. They proved to be better than us last night."

The 41-23 loss to Georgia Tech was extremely disappointing.

"I was angry, disappointed, pissed off. The whole nine yards," Marve said. "You go into a game like that never expecting that outcome. We felt very good going into the game. But obviously it didn't end up like we like it."

N.C. State comes into the game with a 5-6 record, but has won three straight with wins over Duke, Wake Forest, and North Carolina.

"NC State is very interesting team," Marve said. "To see their record and then to see how they're playing lately, it's two different teams. Them guys really seem to be coming around and making a strong push."

N.C. State needs to win to become bowl eligible. But they aren't the only hungry team.

"We're real hungry ourselves," Marve said. "Obviously, we don't want to end on one of those notes, saying we had a decent season, but we didn't play our best football."

team ends the year on a sour note yet again, i swear i cant figure out this team for the life of me the defense regressed the last couple of weeks after looking good for most of the year....is it coaching? or are the players just not that good? shannon has some decisions to make, the two-QB bullsh*t has to stop next year, and finding a competent offensive coordinator wouldnt hurt either
