9/29 Press Conference News & Notes
Sep. 29, 2009

By: David Lake





CORAL GABLES, Fla -- The University of Miami is preparing for their Saturday night matchup against No. 8 Oklahoma.

Read here for the news and notes coming out of today’s weekly press conference with coach Randy Shannon and what he is saying in preparation for the Sooners.

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

Opening Statement

“We have a big game for us this week at the University of Miami. After four games we will find out where we are at as a football team. It is a big game and a pivotal game for us. We are going up against a good football team and I respect coach Stoops as a coach and as a person. They do an unbelievable job with their front seven with stopping the run and causing a lot of havoc. Offensively, it is the same offense that they are running last year and they do a great job of scoring points and getting their running backs and receivers in position to make plays.”

News & Notes

• Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops isn't expected to name a starting quarterback until later this week. It doesn‘t matter if Oklahoma starts Sam Bradford or Landry Jones at quarterback, Shannon said. “From last year to this year, it is the same offense. It isn’t going to change. They run the same offense, the same running plays and same pass plays. Nothing changes.” Shannon said he won’t be paying attention to who Oklahoma names their starting quarterback.

• Shannon talked about what he has seen from OU quarterback Landry Jones: “He is patient with what he needs to get done. He doesn’t rush things or do things that is going to hurt them. If you look at him when he throws the football, he drops back and goes through the coverage and all his reads. It is a timing offense and a West Coast offense. He does a good job of recognizing [the defense] and getting rid of the football.”

• The Oklahoma offense is one of the best in the country, because they execute their gameplan so well, Shannon said. “If they score the points that they are scoring now, there isn’t any uncertainty. They are facing Division I football teams in Idaho and Tulsa and those guys are doing a good job of execution. The receivers are doing a great job, the quarterback is doing a great job, and the line is doing a great job. They are down a tight end and a quarterback, but they still have those receivers and still have those running backs. The offensive line may be new, but they are not freshmen.”

• In an effort to get back to tackling better, Shannon said the team had more of a physical practice on Tuesday morning. “We went full speed, live tackling drills and all. We went back to what we did against Georgia Tech. Those guys know they have to respond now.”

• Shannon on why BYU had success against Oklahoma: “They made plays. Offensively they got receivers in the hole and they ran the ball and got some guys blocked. They caused some red-zone turnovers and I think those were the key plays in the game.”

• Oklahoma has one of the best defensive front sevens in college football, which is led by defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. “McCoy is a big time player that we recruited out of Oklahoma,” Shannon said. “Their front guys get after it big time. They are active, they are aggressive, and that is the strength of their defense, so it is going to be a challenge for our offensive line and for our running backs.”

• Shannon says he likes seeing the type of cross-country matchups like Miami-Oklahoma. “It is good for college football that you can go across the country and play different teams. It is great for college football that you see these type of programs play each other throughout the country.”

• Shannon on if playing Oklahoma can help their recruiting efforts in the Midwest: “It does a sometimes. There may be one player in the Midwest section that likes Miami and will watch that game. There will be a lot of recruits at that game. It is a big game. It will be a good atmosphere from a recruiting standpoint.”

• Sean Spence is playing “fine” according to Shannon “He is just not getting the big hits. Everybody notices Sean make big hits on receivers or blitzing on the running backs and he is just not doing those things.”

The University of Miami Hurricanes had a ``great'' practice Tuesday morning, according to UM coach Randy Shannon.

Shannon, who was unavailable to reporters after practice but will hold his weekly news conference later Tuesday, told 560 WQAM sports-radio host Joe Rose there was ``some excitement going on. The players had a great practice this morning. They flew around and did a lot of great things.''

Shannon told WQAM that wide receiver Aldarius Johnson, who was believed to have a groin injury, practiced Tuesday. He said defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive end Andrew Smith ``did some good things at practice. I'm kind of excited about the way they practiced today. Aldarius Johnson did a nice job today in practice also.

``We have three guys back and you know how it is -- you've got little nicks and ankles here and little toe injuries here. But you know what? We have some guys to replace them, which is good.''

Is safety Randy Phillips back?

``He practiced a little today,'' Shannon told Rose. ``But we'll know come game time. We'll wait and see. I'm old school. I tell them if by Wednesday you don't practice, you can't play. We do have some old guys like Randy Phillips, who I think can go out there and play the game without practicing. But he's got to practice come Wednesday to get into contact, the pads and things like that, because Thursday we're not in football pads. He has to get the physical work in.''

Phillips injured his arm at Virginia Tech.

• Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops told Rose earlier Tuesday that he still didn't know if 2008 Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford would be back for the UM game. Bradford has a third-degree shoulder separation of his throwing arm.

``We'll see,'' Stoops said. ``It's just too early in the week to know. He has been progressing well. All his rehab and everything has gone really well. We'll just have to see as we go through the week.''

It would be stupid for him to play bradford. Though the race to the national championship for the sooners is not completely over, the big12 schedule starts next week for them, and then they have texas in 2 weeks. They're really gonna need bradford in that game. landry jones is not gonna beat texas with slants and flares to the RB.

heck, jones is NOT gonna rip us for 50 points on slants and flares to chris brown/demarco murray

UM’s nightmare on Saturday didn’t end with its 31-7 loss to Virginia Tech.

It continued on the Hurricanes’ trip home. UM was to fly out of Roanoke following the game but was unable to do so because rain made it unsafe for the Hurricanes’ charter to use that city’s airport, according to coach Randy Shannon.

UM was then forced to take a three-hour bus ride to Charlotte, N.C. Once the Hurricanes got to Charlotte’s aiport, they had to wait for TSA agents to be rounded up so that the team could clear security.

Instead of getting home at 11 p.m. as planned, the team arrived in Coral Gables at 4 a.m.

“It was a bad day all-around,” Shannon said.

Here’s a few more things I spoke to Shannon about today:

…..Safety Randy Phillips, who sat out most to the Virginia Tech game with an arm injury, may be able to play against Oklahoma on Saturday if the practices on Wednesday. Phillips was dressed out at today’s practice but did not participate in contact drills.

….Ran into defensive end Adewale Ojomo as I was walking into my meeting with Shannon. Ojomo says he’s lost 20-25 pounds after getting his jaw broken in a skirmish during fall practice. He hopes to begin practicing soon, but Shannon said that is “still up to the doctors.”

…..With teams punting away from Travis Benjamin, Shannon said he’s considering using two punt returners instead of one. “We’ve got to get something out of our punt-return teams,” Shannon said. The Hurricanes rank next to last in the ACC with a punt return average of two yards.


…..Shannon said freshman tailback Lamar Miller won’t play this season unless he’s forced to by injuries.

….Freshman safety Ray Ray Armstrong will see increased playing time after performing well against Virginia Tech, Shannon said.:applause:

….Walk-on Corey Nelms replaced Sam Shields on the kickoff coverage team and will keep the job after impressing coaches against Virginia Tech.

….Shannon said he expects receiver Aldarius Johnson, defensive tackle Marcus Forston and defensive end Andrew Smith to play against Oklahoma. Johnson has missed the last two games while Forston and Smith were held out against the Hokies because of injuries.

CORAL GABLES - Although Hurricanes sophomore quarterback Jacory Harris doesn't want to hear about rankings or overhyped media predictions anymore, he did enjoy hearing words of encouragement from former 'Cane quarterback Ken Dorsey after he struggled in a 31-7 loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday.

"Ken Dorsey [texted] me, telling me it was just like the time he lost to Washington," Harris said. "[He said], 'You just got to get behind the team, talk to them, make sure everybody is on the right track, that we're paying attention and focused because we can't let VT beat us twice.'

"We can't worry about what Virginia Tech did last week when we're playing Oklahoma because that's when distractions [occur] and a lot of things don't go the right way.''

Dorsey was referring to a 34-29 loss to then-15th-ranked Washington in Husky Stadium on Sept. 9, 2000 in the second game of the season. The Hurricanes dropped from No. 4 to 12, but then ran the table, including a 37-20 victory over seventh-ranked Florida in the Sugar Bowl to finish 11-1.

QUICK HITS

- Because of the inclement weather in Blacksburg, Va., Saturday, the Hurricanes were unable to fly out of nearby Roanoke Airport, so they had to bus three hours to Charlotte, N.C., before flying home at 4 a.m.

"Without any food,'' joked coach Randy Shannon. "That day was a bad day. A bad game and bad flights.''

- Fifth-year senior CB Randy Phillips, who didn't play the second half because of an injured forearm, was limited in practice Tuesday, but Shannon said he'd be a game-time decision. … Starters DE Andrew Smith and DT Marcus Forston, who missed the Hokies' game with minor lower extremity nicks, returned to practice. ... WR Aldarius Johnson, who missed the last two games with a groin injury, practiced and is eager to face the Sooners.

CORAL GABLES — University of Miami receiver Leonard Hankerson has 25 catches in two-plus seasons with the Hurricanes.

But to UM fans, it might seem as if he's allowed as many passes to slip through his hands.

What are these?


Hankerson, a junior, has suffered some notable drops during his short career. Last season, he was unable to catch a couple of third-down passes against Florida that k!lled drives. Against Florida State, Hankerson allowed a potential touchdown pass to bounce off his chest that proved crucial in UM's loss.

But thanks to a summer tutorial with former Dolphin great Mark Duper, Hankerson has gone from butter-fingered to sure-handed.

Through three games, Hankerson ranks second on the Hurricanes with eight catches and a team-leading 186 yards. His average of 62 receiving yards per game ranks seventh in the ACC.

"Hand-eye coordination," Duper said explaining Hankerson's increased production. "That was the biggest thing we worked on all summer and it seems like it's worked out just fine."

Hankerson, 20, said he didn't know anything about the 50-year-old Duper, a three-time Pro Bowl selection during 11 seasons with the Dolphins, when he first met him.

But James Hankerson, Leonard's uncle, was an old acquaintance of Duper's and put him in touch with his nephew.

"I said, 'What's his problem?'" said Duper, a resident of Wellington. "They said, 'He drops a lot of balls.'"

Duper and Hankerson began working out in the summer two or three times a week.

"We mainly worked on his concentration because that was his downfall," Duper said. "He wants to be a great receiver, but you can't be a great receiver if you don't catch the football."

Drills included firing smaller footballs at Hankerson while his back was turned and forcing him to catch two baseballs thrown from different directions.

"He was eager to learn and I was eager to tutor him," Duper said. "He really wanted it."

Hankerson had an uneven performance in UM's season-opening victory against Florida State. He set a career-high with four receptions for 72 yards, but he dropped at least one pass that he should have caught.

The next day, Duper was on the phone to him.

"He called to make sure I got those drops out of my mind," Hankerson said.

Hankerson caught the only ball thrown to him against Georgia Tech - a 35-yard toss from Jacory Harris that set up a touchdown - then caught three passes for 79 yards last Saturday against Virginia Tech.

Among the three catches against the Hokies was a 30-yard reception that Hankerson caught between two defenders and ended with the 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior getting punished. The catch set up UM's only touchdown in the 31-7 loss in Blacksburg, Va.

"He got (hit hard), but it hurts less when you catch the ball than when you drop it," Duper said.

Duper said he's never coached in any official capacity higher than little league, but was intrigued by working with Hankerson.

"Leonard is my project," Duper said. "I wanted to prove to myself that I could change (him) into being a better ballplayer."

Hankerson is making Duper look good so far. His production in UM's first three games nearly matches what he totaled (11 receptions, 140 yards) in eight games last season.

"He's really turned the corner," junior cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke said. "When 'Hank' drops a ball in practice now, it's like, 'What's wrong with Hank?' He's on a roll."

UM receivers coach Aubrey Hill said he was "open" to Duper working with Hankerson during the off-season.

"Any way to get our receivers to catch it on 3rd and 15, we're excited about it," Hill said.

QB Whipple Transfers to Miami
Oct. 1, 2009

By: Christopher Stock





Spencer Whipple
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Quarterback Spencer Whipple, the son of offensive coordinator Mark Whipple, has transferred to the University of Miami from Massachusetts.

Whipple, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound lefthander, is a redshirt sophomore and is handling the scout team duties as a walk-on.

“Spence was at the University of Pitt and wanted to be with his family and he was at UMass when his dad went to Philly,” coach Randy Shannon said. “He just wants to be with his dad and he has a little brother at St. Thomas that he likes to go see play J.V. It is more of a family thing that he wants to be around and Miami is still a private institution where he can get a good education.”

Whipple was the starting quarterback at Pine-Richland High School in Gibsonia, Pa. as a senior in 2006. He started his prep career at South Hadley (Mass.).

Following high school, he played one season at Pittsburgh in 2007 as a walk-on and he redshirted before transferring to Massachusetts. He played in one game in 2008 and completed his only pass for 16 yards.

With the addition of Whipple, Miami now has four quarterbacks on the roster with two scholarship players--sophomore Jacory Harris and freshman A.J. Highsmith--and two walkons--senior Matt Perrelli and Whipple.

“(Whipple) is doing a great job of getting the guys going and guys are really taking his lead,” Shannon said.

Whipple is wearing No. 16 for the Hurricanes.

Practice Report: 10/1
Oct. 1, 2009

By: David Lake





CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The Miami Hurricanes held practice Thursday afternoon in preparation for #8 Oklahoma.

Miami is looking for their first win over a top 10 team since knocking off then-No. 3 ranked Virginia Tech on November 5, 2005 when UM was ranked fifth. Miami is 0-4 against top 10 teams since then. From 1998-2005, Miami defeated a top 10 team at least once in each season during the eight-year span.

See what the latest buzz is around the team and what coach Randy Shannon had to say following practice.

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

Opening statement

“We got a lot of work done today. Guys flew around and we had a good time. We executed the offense and all you can do now is watch film and have meetings and we will see what happens on Saturday.”

News & Notes

• Oklahoma features two running backs who ran for over 1,000 yards last season in DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown. Shannon says the Oklahoma running game is one of the strengths of their team. “They have good running backs. They are explosive and I look at it as the strength of their football team right now. The running backs and quarterbacks have done a great job the last two weeks of protecting the football. We recruited Murray and the other kid was a good running back coming out of high school also that everybody in the country would probably like to have.”

• Offensive coordinator Mark Whipple’s son, Spencer, has transferred to Miami from UMass where he was a backup quarterback. Spencer Whipple, a walkon will be handling the scout team duties for the offense this year. “Spence was at the University of Pitt and wanted to be with his family and he was at UMass when his dad went to Philly,” Shannon said. “He just wants to be with his dad and he has a little brother at St. Thomas that he likes to go see play J.V. It is more of a family thing that he wants to be around and Miami is still a private institution where he can get a good education.”

“He is doing a great job of getting the guys going and guys are really taking his lead.”

• This will be the first back-to-back Saturday games for Miami and that helps the team get in a regular rhythm for the rest of the season. “Once you get in the rhythm of something it becomes easier,” Shannon said. “Monday is this, Tuesday is this, Wednesday is this, and Thursday is this. It is just those first couple of weeks when you have nine days off or seven days off where the team cant get in a rhythm. Now once you get in a rhythm guys just do it.”

• Miami is averaging just two yards per punt return so far this season. Shannon says the biggest reason for that is because teams are kicking away from his returners. “Hopefully they kick the ball inbounds,” Shannon said. “You show me a return that you can get when they kick the ball out of bounds.”

• Shannon on if high school games like St. Thomas-Byrnes are good for high school football: “I think it is good for high school football that you have that type of caliber teams playing. I think it is great for high school football in the South Florida region which is very good.”

• Now that it is October, Shannon has contemplated changing the daily practices to the afternoon, but for now he will wait a little longer to make the switch. “I know it is turning, but we had those showers yesterday that kind of made me nervous. I have to wait until those showers clear up.”
