Miami Hurricanes' Vaughn Telemaque hopes to be catalyst for turnovers

Safety Vaughn Telemaque, who has drawn comparisons to Ed Reed by coach Randy Shannon, is looking to help UM's defense create more turnovers -- starting with himself.

When Ed Reed returned to the University of Miami this past spring for a visit, he made sure to speak with Vaughn Telemaque.

The six-time Pro Bowl safety and the Canes' all-time leader in interceptions had heard coach Randy Shannon mention how Telemaque had the potential to live up to Reed's legacy. So Reed dedicated a portion of his time to tutoring the redshirt sophomore on ways to become better at ball-hawking.

``He talked about how playing cornerback can help you learn where your vulnerable points are [in the secondary], and it can carry your safety [play] to another level,'' said Telemaque, who played a lot of cornerback for that reason in the spring.

``He said it can help you understand routes, where the quarterback is trying to fit the ball. If you can do that, then you know where you can fill the void at safety.''

Thirteen starts into his career, Telemaque still is looking for his first college interception for a UM defense that has created only one turnover in two games heading into Thursday night's game at Pittsburgh.

But as frustrating as the search for turnovers has been for the Hurricanes defense, the 6-2, 207-pound former All-American from Long Beach Poly High School a.ssures he isn't lacking confidence. He is handling the struggles with California cool and letting them roll off his signature dreadlocks.

``I need to get some more turnovers. I need to make some big-time plays like [Reed] and get that going,'' said Telemaque, who as a senior at Poly made 89 tackles and nine interceptions -- including three in the state championship game.

``[But] I understand I also need to be patient and just let it come to me. Patience is a virtue. I want to try to make it happen, [but] if I'm not making it happen, the guys around me will make sure we're making it happen.''

BOUNCING BACK

Patience is nothing new for Telemaque. Three games into his freshman season, he tore his labrum after a collision with Texas A&M fullback Jorvorskie Lane that caused him to miss the final 10 games of the 2008 season.

``Once he got hurt, he was like, `Man what am I gonna do?' '' said USC defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, a close friend of Telemaque's who played with him at Poly.

``It was tough for him because he was on special teams and just getting ready to get in the rotation.''

But it didn't take Telemaque long to bounce back. After missing the season opener at Florida State, he made 11 starts in the Canes' final 12 games and finished fifth on the team with 48 tackles last season. Along the way, he delivered his share of highlight-reel hits -- including upending Georgia Tech running back Roddy Jones and a vicious blow to Duke receiver Donovan Varner.

THE NEXT STEP

Although Shannon said Telemaque has done a great job signaling teammates in the secondary and lining players up in the right spots, it's the next step -- helping create turnovers -- coaches are waiting on.

So far, sophomore Ray-Ray Armstrong's 22-yard interception return for a touchdown against Florida A&M is the only turnover UM has produced this season. Last season, the team created 21 turnovers, nine by interceptions. But only five of those picks were made by players in the Canes secondary.

When Reed patrolled UM's secondary in 2000 and 2001, interceptions were the norm. UM snagged 50 between the 2000 and 2001 seasons. Reed recorded 17 of those over his final two seasons. But in his first two years with UM, Reed was more of a tackler with only two interceptions in each season.

``I appreciate [the Reed comparisons],'' Telemaque said. ``[But] I just want to go out there and play team football.

``Knowing I have No. 1 [Brandon Harris] as a corner, No. 8 [DeMarcus Van Dyke] as a corner, No. 26 [Armstrong] to my left or right -- that builds confidence, and that'll help me play to my potential.''

Receiver LaRon Byrd, Telemaque's roommate, said it is only a matter of time before the safety becomes more of the player Shannon projected him to be.

``We always talk about that,'' said Byrd, who wears Michael Irvin's No. 47 jersey. ``I'll be like, `VT, I have to have this blowout game' and he'll say, `Byrd, I have to have that shutdown game.' I definitely think it's going to happen for him soon. He just needs to keep working at it.''

It's gonna be over by halftime.

I expect Jacory to throw for 3 or 4 TDs and DB with a couple TD runs. Our second string offense will be in the field by the end of the 3rd quarter and the 4th

I just don't see how Pitt will be able to keep up with our offense. Their defense is completely depleted and their best d-lineman has completely disappeared this year. Our talent on offense is just way too much for this team to handle..... same goes with their offense. I said it before, Dion Lewis is a bit overrated and teams have been zero-ing in on him and that offense has gone nowhere. Spence played better than the freshmen Spence and Oliver Vernon is a certified true G so far. I trust in BH to shut down Baldwin on the outside as well.

I dont know bout that homie:lachen001:. BH is my boy, but Baldwin is the damn truth. I hope my skins get a shot at drafting him, he's gonna be a good pro

I could see BH staying with him most of the game with maybe Armstrong helping over the top. No one else on their offense really worries me, maybe Dion but I keep hearing how the interior of their o-line is weak so I'm hoping for a big game by Forston, Bailey & co. And they have been struggling with getting Dion going so hopefully this won't be the game where it starts.

everytime any team plays against the U they find some extra motivation you know im saying...... i wouldn't be surprised if these n*ggas come to play and Dion breaks a couple runs. With that being said, I still don't think he goes over 75 yds. Not with that o-line and their unsteady QB. And definitely not with the monsters we got at the d-line

defense looked on point. cobra spence is playing the best ball i've seen a UM linebacker play in years...i saw cookie buchanan out there flying around too. and i'm glad shannon benched DVD, that n*gga has done nothing in his 4 years here. i'd rather see mcgee take his lumps out there.

it pisses me off man.....i played with figs in high school brah and s**t really hasn't changed with him. He loves taking plays off it's f**king annoyin when he's on he's on, he can manhandle the best of them. Last year he moved Gerald McCoy pretty good but this season he's just going through the motions... granted he has been having shoulder problems but last night he played horrific. Got manhandled by #97 a couple times and the penalties

It is what it is for real cuzo... I just hope he doesn't take those chances when we're behind or in a tight game. As with Spence, that boy is taking hostages right now my n*gga is playing like a first team All-American right now :agreement6: Best LB we've had since DJ. After following up with 11 tackles at osu, he got 9 taclkes and 1.5 sacks

Another one is my n*gga Vernon :agreement6: That boy is unstoppable

And dude, Boss Shannon wasn't f**king around about getting pissed off after ohio state that n*gga benched DVD finally after 4 years I'd rather see McGee getting abused but at least he's just a freshman...I could deal with that. He even benched Ford after he got that penalty and put in Richard Gordon for the next 2 quarters

Shannon Reaction: Day After Pitt
Sep. 24, 2010

By: David Lake





Jacory Harris
Head coach Randy Shannon met with media via teleconference Friday afternoon following the Miami Hurricanes 31-3 win at Pittsburgh.

The win at Pittsburgh was a good sign that Miami could bounce back after a disappointing loss to No. 2 Ohio State.

Miami’s schedule doesn’t get any easier next week as the Hurricanes travel to Clemson for their first ACC game of the season. Miami coach Randy Shannon says he won’t let his team have a letdown at Clemson after the Hurricanes’ dominating performance at Pitt.

“From a coaching standpoint, we are not going to let [them] get relaxed,” Shannon said. “If we feel like they are getting relaxed in practice, then we will put somebody else in and move forward and coach that guy up to play with a lot of intensity.”

Read on for more news and notes.

NEWS & NOTES

• According to Shannon, the minor injury quarterback Jacory Harris against Pitt that knocked him out of the game for one play is minor. “The doctors put him back in the game and felt like he was ready to go,” Shannon said. “It was nothing that he felt was serious and it is like anything, you get a nick on a finger and you tape it up and go. He got a little ding and he felt better and he was ready to go.”

• Jacory Harris’ two interceptions were not the product of bad decision making, Shannon said. Harris threw the ball to wide receiver Travis Benjamin when he had single coverage on a safety on both plays. Shannon says Miami receivers need to come down with the ball in those situations. “We always figure that if we have receivers one-on-one, then we have to make those catches,” Shannon said. “If our receivers are caught on a safety one-on-one they have to make those catches for us to be successful.”

• Defensively, Shannon was pleased with the overall team effort against Pittsburgh. “I think we tackled a lot better,” Shannon said. “We had a lot of gang tackles and tackles for loss and got a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks and we got two turnovers.”

• LB Sean Spence has started the season very strong and Shannon credits a lot of his early season success to the play of the defensive line. “That means the defensive line is getting double teamed,” Shannon said. “A lot of it goes to what our defensive line is doing. If they have to double team the defensive line, the linebackers will be free.”

• WR LaRon Byrd “did a great job,” Shannon said. “We have talked about getting other receivers involved and things like that and LaRon Byrd came up with a lot of big 15-yard out routes that were big plays in the game to keep a drive going.”

• Senior CBs Ryan Hill and DeMarcus Van Dyke each made an interception in the fourth quarter against Pittsburgh. Shannon was pleased to see his veteran defensive backs come up with big plays. “Ryan did a good job in practice,” Shannon said. “I am not taking anything away from Van Dyke because he played a lot also. It is just Ryan has been working his butt off and both of those guys are starters and I was happy to see both of those guys get interceptions.”

• The offensive line “did decent” against Pitt, Shannon said. “We got the quarterback sacked twice from off the edge and we have to get better at that. Jacory got touched maybe four times which is good and if you can cut that down to zero, that would be great.”

• LB Jordan Futch received extended playing time on defense against Pitt. Futch is working his way back from an ACL injury he sustained last season and Shannon is excited with the way he is coming back off the injury. “We are excited about his progress and the more he plays the better he will get,” Shannon said.

• Clemson’s death Valley is one of the toughest road venues the ACC has to offer. Shannon compares their stadium to playing at Virginia Tech and Ohio State. “I know it is really loud up there,” Shannon said. “It is a great college atmosphere and there is going to be a lot of fans and it is one of those places that you want to go and participate in because of the college atmosphere.”

• Miami has an extra weekend to prepare for Clemson, but the Tigers will have two entire weeks to prepare for UM. Clemson had two weeks to prepare last year for the Hurricanes and threw some new wrinkles into the gameplan. “They lined up and went to a lot of no backs and things like that in the game, which was something we didn’t see,” Shannon said. “You have to expect the unexpected.”
