looking at our teams best players, its all damn freshman and sophmores. Ive never seen a big time program lean on so many young players before and succeed...this team will be amazing in 2-3 years though gurantee it
thing that sucks is knowing that we could easily be 4-1 right now and 2-0 in conference play....we let these last 2 games slip away:banghead:

but i'm just happy the team hasn't quit in any of their games and have fought til the last whistle. the wins will come, we just gotta stay patient.

thats expected with such young players but your right, the wins will start piling in.....realize these kids are 18 n 19 going up against senior and juniors and some nfl prospects and are still able to hold their own

one thing to add is nix really needs to step his game up or hes out. If he doesnt improve the play calling by the end of the season, i say that shannon should look elsewhere

UM football: Travis Benjamin was a one-man wrecking crew

UM's Travis Benjamin was a one-man wrecking crew, accounting for 274 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns against Florida State.

The Blur from Belle Glade made his mark Saturday against Florida State -- just like University of Miami coach Randy Shannon said he would earlier this week.

Unfortunately for the Hurricanes, freshman Travis Benjamin was only on the field for special teams and offense.

Benjamin was the centerpiece in UM's second-half rally against FSU. He got his first career touchdown on an 18-yard run in the third quarter to cut UM's deficit to 24-10. He scored again on a trick play, when he hauled in a 51-yard pass from running back Graig Cooper to cut FSU's lead to 31-22. He also had kickoff returns of 57, 42 and 29 yards and finished with 274 all-purpose yards.

None of it felt any good, though, after a wet, wild and disappointing 41-39 loss.

''I played my best. I played real good, but I was still hoping and wishing we'd come out with the win,'' Benjamin said. "Whatever I did doesn't matter unless we win. There are no good feelings after a game like this.''

No good feelings, but maybe there is hope for a team looking for a bright spot after falling to 2-3 overall and 0-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Benjamin, who has the Hurricanes' fastest time in the 40-yard dash (4.29), provided life for UM nearly every time he touched the football. And he left teammates, who often have compared him to former Canes great Devin Hester, wondering what will happen if he gets more chances to handle the ball.

''This guy seems like he just kind of came in a couple days ago. But he's full on now,'' said quarterback Robert Marve, who completed three passes to Benjamin for 71 yards. "There were a couple times on special teams where I said, "They got that fool." Then, he poked his head around the corner. It's like he runs a 3.9.

"He looked great. He's the type of guy we need to keep getting the ball to. It's going to be interesting to see what he turns into when he's here for a couple years instead of a couple of days.''

Benjamin, a cousin of former Hurricane Alphonso Marshall, said he has never spoken to Hester. He doesn't mind the comparison -- or getting more involved in UM's offense.

''Maybe I needed a game like this because people thought I was only good on special teams,'' Benjamin said. "I knew I was good on special teams, but I'm also very good on offense too. Every time I'm on the field I feel like I can't be stopped.'

Miami starting LB McCarthy out for season

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP)—Miami linebacker Colin McCarthy will miss the remainder of the season because of a shoulder injury.

Miami coach Randy Shannon said Sunday that McCarthy, who has had ongoing shoulder problems since high school, suffered his latest injury in practice last week.

McCarthy did not play in Miami’s 41-39 loss to Florida State on Saturday. Before getting injured, McCarthy was the Hurricanes’ third leading tackler this season.

Also Sunday, Shannon said defensive end Eric Moncur’s status for the remainder of the season is unknown because of a leg injury.

Moncur had sports hernia surgery over the summer, and has been bothered by a leg injury not related to the hernia—plus is still dealing with the death of his his 42-year-old mother, who succumbed to cancer last month. He left the field briefly on Saturday to be checked in the locker room, came back into the game for part of the second quarter, but didn’t play again after halftime.

“I told him, ‘I love you to death, but I can’t do this to you. We can’t do this to you. You can’t do this to yourself. You just got to shut it down. We’ll send you to a specialist, whatever we need to do. Right now you’re not going to be able to help us this season,”’ Shannon said.
our already-weakened defense takes another blow

put arthur brown in, who cares how many mistakes he makes. its not like the defense can get any worse than it already is

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Randy Shannon met with reporters on Sunday morning following the 41-39 loss to Florida State on Saturday afternoon.

Shannon watched the game film and talked about various topics.











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

NEWS & NOTES

? The turning point of the game according to Shannon was the penalty on wide receiver Sam Shields for illegal substitution on first and goal from the four yard line. "I thought definitely we were going to score because we had the momentum going," Shannon said. "If we score we go up and Florida State has a different mentality."

? Shannon said he "had no idea" why Shields ran into the game in that spot. "He is never in that personnel group. He is not second team, third team, or fourth team. He had no idea he is not in that personnel group."

? Last year at this point, Miami was 4-1. Though UM has a record of 2-3 right now, Shannon says he still feels like this year's team is better than last year's team. With two close losses in the last two weeks, Shannon says he feels like the team is very close to getting to where they need to be. "Losing is hard and we don't accept losing," Shannon said. "Am I proud of those young guys f!ghting and coming back in the fourth quarter? Yes, I am very proud of them. Every week it seems like we are that close to flipping it to get where we are going."

"We can't baby you and say it is going to be ok. It is not going to be ok. We are going to keep pushing and try to get everything we can out of you. The coaching staff has to do everything they can to get the players in those situations."

? The biggest thing Miami can take from the past two weeks is learning from their mistakes and not allowing them to occur again. "You learn from mistakes," Shannon said. "When you get close in a game and have a chance to win it, you can't cost yourself."

? Wide receiver Travis Benjamin is already drawing attention from defenses and Shannon said it is important to have him in the game as much as possible even if he isn't the primary receiver because of the attention he draws.

? Shannon on the similarities between Travis Benjamin and Devin Hester: "They are very comparable, but Travis is probably faster than Devin. When Hester came into his own, he was about 195 pounds. Travis is probably about 165 soaking wet."

"He is just flat out fast. When you watch him, he just goes. He just out-runs everybody to the edge. Remember what Santana was like? He was just fast and Travis is a fast kid."

? Freshman linebacker Sean Spence started his first game at Miami and led the team with 10 tackles and scored on an interception return. Shannon said he was impressed by his ability to make that scoring play. "That shows that hey we have a freshman again putting us in a situation to win the game."

? Because Miami got down by 14 early in the game, Shannon said the offense had to abandon the running game. Running back Graig Cooper finished the game with 16 yards on seven carries.

? The key to getting back in the game was the special teams play with the long returns by Travis Benjamin and the pressure that they got on FSU's punt team to cause botched snaps.

? Shannon said FSU quarterback Christian Ponder was able to break free for long runs because of defensive busts that occurred. "We had busts on simple things that we have been running all year," Shannon said. "I think they got a little fatigued and they stopped thinking. As coaches we have to do a better job of identifying that in practice and getting it corrected. It is us as coaches who have to get that corrected."

? One of the problems Shannon saw from the defense was the secondary trying to arm tackle the FSU ball carriers and that allowed too many yards after contact. "That is a big key point," Shannon said. "We are making contact, but we aren't bringing guys down."

? Freshman cornerback Brandon Harris had a tough game according to Shannon, but he will continue to have confidence in Harris the rest of the season. "It was tough and Brandon and he is a true freshman, but we have to give him an opportunity," Shannon said. "He had a rough day, but if we don't put him in those situations then we won't know if he can be successful. You have to throw him into the fire and see what he can do."

? Miami did not record a sack against FSU Saturday. "If we don't correct that, then it is going to be a long season for us," Shannon said. "This week we are going to work on third down offense and third down defense."

? Shannon said his two greatest needs they are addressing in recruiting this year is offensive line and defensive backs. "We need corners bad. On the offensive line you got a chance to lose every offensive tackle except one and you have Ben Jones who is redshirting this year. We think Ben Jones is going to be a good player for us at tackle."

? Running back Javarris James "might be ready to go" this week against Central Florida Shannon said. A decision likely won't be made until the end of the week after James does more running on his ankle.

? Kicker Matt Bosher had one of the best games of his career against Florida State and Shannon believes it was because he limited his kicking reps during the week of practice leading up to the game. Shannon said Bosher and Jake Wieclaw were competing for the kickoff job and Bosher won the job as a game time decision.

? Wide receiver Jermaine McKenzie did not play in the Florida State game. Shannon said he will try to work McKenzie into the Central Florida game and he may see reps in the slot.

Randy Shannon

On the offense...
"Offensively, we couldn't get the run game going. We kind of struggled with that early in the game. We gave the ball to [Graig] Cooper early, but we couldn't get the run game cranked up the way we needed to. Our passing game started off sharp and crisp. They were doing a lot of good things. Then they started picking up blitzes and we made some big plays off of that."

On the defense...
"Defensively, we weren't able to hold them consistently. We got them to third down a lot of times, but then we couldn't get off the field."

On the last scoring drive for FSU...
"I thought the last drive that Florida State scored on was a great call. We had two guys find the quarterback. The guys just miscommunicated and [Antone] Smith broke free. The call was to man everybody up and double the quarterback, but Smith came free."

On special teams...
"The special teams were tremendous. I thought that was the one phase of the game that kept us in it and gave us the opportunity to win. Special teams is the thing that you always say gives you the chance to win the game. That was the one phase we felt going into the game we had the opportunity to capitalize on. We did and it almost gave us a chance to win this game."

On the team...
"Do we have a long ways to go? Yeah, I think so because we've got to win the game. I'm not going to make excuses for it. We're going to coach these guys hard. We're going to get these guys back to where they need to be. We're going to teach these guys what it takes to win and finish the game."

On what he told his players...
"I told them when you have an opportunity to come back in that sense, you can't just break down and have one mental lapse."

Robert Marve

On the loss...
"Obviously it was a tough loss to be in a situation where you feel like you have the edge to come back so strong. We didn't job out the gate like we wanted to, but in the second half we gave it all we got and fell just short."

On the effectiveness of FSU's pass rush...

"I probably just held onto the ball too long."

On the effect the rain had on the game
"Normally you can get your thumb on the ball and get pretty good control of the ball, but when the ball is soaked, sometimes the ball rises. If I put the ball in better position, Hankerson probably catches a touchdown, but the ball felt funny out of my hand."

Sean Spence

On what this loss feels like...
It is very disappointing. It feels like somebody stabbed me in the heart. We put in a lot of hard work. We practice hard and then we come out here and lose. It hurts. We just have to stay calm and keep being positive.

On the defense giving up too many touchdowns in the red-zone...
"We have to improve our red-zone defense. There is no way to hide that. We have to bow up and play hard."

On what happened on FSU's final touchdown...
"We had a blitz called and we expected the pass. They slipped the draw on us and we didn't execute."

On FSU quarterback Christian Ponder...
"He is a great quarterback. He is tough and runs hard. You have to really wrap him up to bring him down. He surprised me."

On how disheartening it was to allow 11-of-17 third downs for first downs...
"It is very hard because we call third down our money down. We try to get off the field and get the ball back to our offense. For some reason we just couldn't get it done today."

Adewale Ojomo

On his fumble recovery...
"I ran straight up the field and I saw the exchange between the running back and the quarterback and I hit the running back as soon as he got the ball and I caused the fumble and recovered it."

On not getting off the field with third and longs as a defense...
"It is just something we have to work on and get better at as far as pass rushing goes.

On if he was surprised the defense couldn't stop Ponder...
"Yeah, because he is not a very mobile guy as far as speed goes, but he got the job done today."

Bruce Johnson

On not being able to stop FSU on third down...
"We just have to keep f!ghting. Third and long, they are getting first downs and that is not good at all. It is kind of frustrating, but you have to put in the past and move on to the next play. You just have to keep f!ghting."

On why FSU quarterback Ponder was able to have a big rushing day
"To be honest with you, we were not playing a.ssignment football at the beginning. We came into halftime and made some adjustments and I feel like we did slow him down a little bit more in the second half. If we had come out and played fast in the first half, it wouldn't have been an issue."

On if he was surprised by how fast Ponder was as a runner
"I wouldn't say I was surprised. Any time somebody comes down to Miami, they are going to play like they are a Heisman candidate. I wasn't surprised because every week we play somebody and they try to go off and do good. It is on us as a defense to buckle down and do our job."

Jason Fox

On picking up Florida State's blitzes...
"It was kind of rough. Some times it felt like we were picking it up and then some times they would make a big play and Rob and Jacory were on the ground. I don't know where exactly it came from and we could have done a better job of picking it up."

On his touchdown at the end of the game...
"I was already gasping for air and we called the play. Coach Nix texted me in the middle of the week that we will score on the tackle throwback. I have been begging him to run it ever since he got the job. He did run it and it was successful and it is too bad we came up short."

On coming close to winning again at the end...
"Losing hurts. You can't really say this and that when the bottom line is that it is a loss. I am really happy with guys f!ghting until the end. If we would have done a better job at the beginning of the game, we wouldn't have had to make those plays at the end to win it."

Losing is contagious. It's become acceptable among the older players at the University of Miami. They are used to it. They must be as the juniors and seniors on the team right now have done 14-16 over the past two and a half years.

They are also the players, for the most part, that shouldn't even sniff the field anymore.

I just hope the losing doesn't become catchy for this freshman class which seems to be the only heart left on the football field. The heart that encompasses winning.

Before we delude ourselves and try to convince ourselves that we actually deserved to win this game, please ignore the fact that the scoreboard final reads FSU 41, Miami 39 which would indicate a close game and recognize that we scored 13 real points of offense.

Down 24-3 in the third, FSU handed us the ball on a fumbled handoff inside our 20. Then Travis Benjamin scored on a reverse making it 24-10. That was a one play, 18-yard drive.

Down 31-13, FSU botched a punt snap which was kicked out of the back of the end zone giving us two points cutting the deficit to 31-15. Pretty easy.

Following the safety, Graig Cooper hit Benjamin with a trick play cutting the deficit to 31-22. Nice call for once.

Down 34-22, Sean Spence intercepted a Christian Ponder pass and scored on a four yard interception return for touchdown cutting the lead to 34-29. That happened to be set up by Leonard Hankerson dropping, or should I say allowing the ball to be ripped from his hands at the two yard line for an FSU interception.

Then FSU botched another punt snap and we got the ball at the FSU FOUR and proceeded to commit a 12-man on the field penalty pushing us back to the nine. How does a team come off the sideline with 12 players? Please, please explain that to me.

But guess, what, we can't punch it in and only get a field goal cutting the lead to 34-32. Over and over again, FSU tried to give it to us and just kept giving it back.

But here's what drives me crazy beyond the fact we lost. It happened in the post game press conference. The players WERE NOT upset, not upset like they should be, not upset the way a team that is watching it's season go down the drain should be upset.

They are happy with moral victories, that they continued to f!ght, that they didn't give up, blah, blah, blah. That's all moral victories are worth. They are blah, blah, blah. Moral victories equate to one thing, losing.

It didn't matter who the player was because it was practically every player in the post game press conference that wasn't THAT upset in losing, with the exception of one, Brandon Harris. He was disgusted, disgusted that his team lost, disgusted that he played as bad a football game as he's played in his life. Two pass interferences and a holding penalty will do that to you. Quite frankly, Brandon was embarrassed.

But so should the continuation of being inept on offense. Robert Marve should be sick to his stomach that Miami lost, not pleased that Travis Benjamin played well the way he was. Who cares if Benjamin played well? We still lost. Jason Fox celebrating a completely meaningless touchdown catch with 14 seconds left, for what? Why? At that point, it didn't matter. The game was over.

And the season is about to be that if this team doesn't figure it out quickly, figure out that losing sucks, that losing should make you feel sick, not have you happy at that fact that the you didn't quit, not happy at the fact that you didn't get blown out, not happy at the fact that you had more fans in the stands, not happy period.

That's what disgusted me the most. And for any real Hurricanes fan, that's what should drive you mad. These guys simply don't seem to care the way you (the fans) and I (a fan) do.

If Ed Reed was in that locker room right now, he'd be embarrassed and ashamed that smiles following a loss have become an acceptable and normal part of being at U.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Miami linebacker Colin McCarthy is done for the season with an injury and defensive end Eric Moncur is likely out for the year too.

McCarthy missed the Florida State game because of a shoulder injury and Head Coach Randy Shannon says the injury was first believed to be a stinger, but the extent of the injury is more serious than previously expected.

McCarthy injured the same shoulder in high school and Shannon said he may need to have surgery on it.

"Colin McCarthy is done for the season," Shannon said. "He won't be playing anymore.

The team's starting weakside linebacker, McCarthy is fifth on the team 15 tackles. He also has one tackle for loss, one sack, and a team-high two forced fumbles.?McCarthy has14 career starts for Miami. .

Senior defensive end Eric Moncur may also be out for the season. Shannon said Moncur's injury is a "leg issue."

Moncur left the Florida State game late in the first quarter and never returned to the game.

"I don't know if he will make it back," Shannon said of Moncur. "At halftime he didn't come back dressed."

"It doesn't look very good for Eric Moncur."

Moncur played in four games this season for Miami and recorded six tackles and led the team with two sacks. He also recorded an interception against Texas A&M.

He missed the majority of fall camp with a sports hernia injury he sustained during the summer.

Shannon said he will definitively know Moncur's status on the rest of the season on Monday.

"I just talked to him a little bit and I said I love you to death, but I can't do this to you," Shannon said. "You can't do this to yourself and we will shut it down and send you to a specialist."

With Moncur out, Shannon says freshmen Marcus Robinson and Andrew Smith will be receiving more reps.

"You have Marcus Robinson and Andrew Smith who are true freshmen, now they have to step in and start playing."

Miami is playing like a young team.

Florida State gave UM chances to win the game Saturday, but the Hurricanes never capitalized on their chances to steal a win in the fourth quarter.

5. The UM defense has to get off the field in third down situations

Miami's defense allowed Florida State to prolong drives. The Seminoles were 11-of-17 on the night in third down conversions. UM could not get FSU off the field in third and long situations.

4. Too many dropped balls

The players were pelted with rain for most of the game, but the receivers dropped too many catchable balls. Most of the drops came when receivers started running before they had the ball caught. This is a concentration issue that will be addressed.

3. Penalties k!lled Miami's momentum

For the game Miami totaled ten penalties for 85 yards. What hurt Miami more than the total number of penalties they ended the game with was the penalties they were hit with in crucial situations. The two biggest penalties came in the fourth quarter: a.) Miami had a penalty on first and goal from FSU's four yard line that pushed them back to the nine and took momentum out of the drive. b.) Bruce Johnson committed a late hit penalty on Preston Parker which gave FSU the ball at the 50 on their final scoring drive.

2. Red-zone defense must improve

Miami's defense has to force opponents into field goals if they expect to score 39 points and win. UM allowed five touchdowns in the red-zone and FSU went a perfect 6-for-6 with red-zone scoring chances. Coming into the Florida State game, Miami allowed their opponent to score nine touchdowns out of ten red-zone opportunities.

1. Get a touchdown with first and goal at the four

This game would have totally been different had Miami scored when they had the ball first down and goal at FSU's four yard line with nine minutes to go. At that point Miami was down 34-29 and a touchdown would have changed the whole complexion of the game. But coming out of a challenged play, Miami was hit for a substitution penalty that pushed them back to FSU's nine yard line. UM still should have scored a touchdown with first and goal at the nine, but only came out with a field goal to bring Miami closer to 34-32. That was the biggest missed opportunity of the game.

no surprise here he's a NW boy.....

Miami Northwestern High School DB Khalid Marshall, a Class of 2010 recruit, was at the UM-FSU game in the Cane recruiting section.

"It was a good game," Marshall said. "Recruits were rooting both ways; some were rooting for Florida State. I was rooting for Miami, of course.

"I was surprised at the start of the game. They started off slow. I figured they'd come back, though."

Marshall says he's waiting on a Cane offer; so far the only early offer he's received is from FIU.

"I was watching the UM DBs during the game - they're good," Marshall said. "They could do better, make more plays, though."

If you noticed Cane linebacker Sean Spence pointing up at the recruiting section after one of his tackles, there was a reason for that.

"He was pointing at me," said Marshall, who played with Spence at Northwestern. "I talk to him all the time. He told me before the game that when he made a big play he was going to point at me, and he did that. I pointed back.

"He wants me to come to Miami, says it's family and things like that."

If Marshall gets an offer down the road he says "there's a good chance" he'll wind up in Coral Gables.

"I like every school in Florida, but I like the U the best," he says.

MIAMI, Fla. -- Freshman linebacker Sean Spence received the first start of his UM career against Florida State and made the most of his opportunity.

Spence led Miami with 10 tackles, scored a touchdown on an interception return, and recorded on tackle for a loss.

Now that Colin McCarthy is expected to miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, Spence's production becomes even more important.

Head Coach Randy Shannon said he was pleased with the way Spence played in his first start. "That shows that we have a freshman again putting us in a situation to win the game," he said.

If Spence continues to fill gaps and make game changing plays like he did against Florida State, the defense should not skip a beat with the absence of McCarthy.

"We had a blitz on and I dropped back into coverage. I saw the ball pop into the air and I kind of slipped and I gathered myself and the ball slipped through my teammates hands and went into my hands."

"The linebackers job is to get to the ball and make plays. That is what I do. Any time I get the ball I try to get a touchdown."

This season Spence ranks fourth on the team with 21 tackles on the year and is second on the team with 3.5 tackles for loss. Though Spence had the best game of his UM career against FSU, after the game he was very upset that Miami could not come out of the game with the win.

"It is very disappointing," Spence said. "It feels like somebody stabbed me in the heart. We put in a lot of hard work. We practice hard and then we come out here and lose. It hurts. We just have to stay calm and keep being positive."

One area Spence says the defense needs to improve this week is their third down defense and red-zone defense. Miami's defense has already allowed 14 touchdowns this season and the third down defense 111th in the country.

The red-zone defense ranks last in the country with teams like Arizona, Louisiana Lafayette, and Bowling Green.

"It is very hard because we call third down our money down," Spence said. "We try to get off the field and get the ball back to our offense. For some reason we just couldn't get it done.

"We have to improve our red-zone defense. There is no way to hide that. We have to bow up and play hard."
