Miller Time Will Come in 2010
Oct. 30, 2009

By: Christopher Stock





Lamar Miller
MIAMI, Fla. -- While at k!llian High School, Lamar Miller inscribed the words ‘Miller Time’ on the bottom flap of his shoulder pads.

He came to the University of Miami with high expectations after rushing for 1,719 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior at k!llian.

Despite a productive fall camp resulting in a number of big runs in practice, Miller found himself sixth on the depth chart at tailback. He made the travel roster, but after not seeing action in the first two games, running backs coach Tommie Robinson informed him that he would redshirt this season.

“At first I didn’t want to get redshirted, I was mad about it,” Miller said. “But then I talked it over with my mom and dad and they said it might be the best thing for me so I just took it. But I came here to get in the game and help the team win, but that didn’t work out.”

Watching from the sidelines hasn’t been easy for Miller as the team is off to a 5-2 start with a rushing attacked ranked 74th nationally.

“It’s been tough because I feel I can help the team more, but coaches told me I shouldn’t waste a year,” said Miller, who routinely scores touchdowns on the scout team and reels off big runs.

So ‘Miller Time’ will have to wait until 2010 when he could compete for a lead role along with Damien Berry, Lee Chambers, and fellow 2009 signee Mike James as Javarris James will be gone due to graduation and junior Graig Cooper could leave early for the NFL Draft.

“Next year I’m planning on having a big season,” Miller said. “Me and Mike James have been talking about it. We feel that it is going to be our year next year. We are just keeping our confidence up and talk to each other and help each other out. We are still looking forward to this season, but we are waiting on next year.”

When it is Miller’s time, he says fans can expect to see, “power, breakaway speed, and a lot of home runs.”

With a number of young, talented players on the roster including quarterback Jacory Harris, wide receivers Travis Benjamin, Aldarius Johnson, and LaRon Byrd, linebacker Sean Spence, cornerback Brandon Harris, and safety Ray Ray Armstrong, the future looks bright for the Hurricanes, which excites Miller.

“Yeah I’m excited (about the future),” Miller said. “We should win a national championship the rest of my years here because we have the talent. We just have to stay focused and stay humble and don’t let the big stuff get to us.”

Individually, Miller has his eyes set on Willis McGahee’s single-season school-record of 1,753 yards, set in 2002.

“Yeah I am planning on getting Willis McGahee’s record, he has the season record and I’m aiming for that,” Miller said. “I think he had 1,700 yards or something like that. That’s my goal.”

Head coach Randy Shannon has been impressed with Miller during practices, but with a stable of capable backs, there is no need for Miller in his opinion.

“He’s doing well. He’s getting better and better each week,” Shannon said. “I’m kind of excited about him. When we need him, we’ll use him. But until then we don’t want to just blow him on playing him on just kickoff returns or something like that. He’s been showing a lot of great things since camp. He’s getting better and better and we are excited about what he’s doing.”

Junior cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke was impressed with what he saw from Miller during fall camp before Miller was relegated to scout team duties.

“He has vision,” said Van Dyke in August. “He is big and he has vision and he holds the ball high and tight. I thought he was a 4.5 40 guy, but he was pulling away from guys. He is special.”

Miller thought he did well during fall camp and has been paying extra attention to his development in pass protection.

“During camp, it was a good experience,” Miller said. “I needed to improve on some things, but other than that I think I did good. Right now I’m trying to improve on my blocking and reading the blitzes. I’ve been doing good on scout team. I’ve been giving the defense a good look and making myself better and making them so they are ready for the next opponent. College is a little bit faster and the blocking scheme is different.”

Freshmen always have to adjust to the speed of the game coming in from high school as well as the detailed playbook of the offense. Miller says he has picked up on Mark Whipple’s creative playbook.








“I understand the playbook,” Miller said. “At first I didn’t understand the playbook, but now I’m coming along with it so I’m good with all of that.”

Miller, who stands 5-foot-11, came to Miami in the fall at 203 pounds. Two weeks ago, Miller had gained 13 pounds and was up to 216 pounds due to “eating so much and wasn’t doing too much in practice”. But he shed the extra pounds and is now down to 209 with his target weight between 205-210 while maintaining his game-breaking speed.

Off the field, Miller is concentrating on his schoolwork and spending time with fellow freshmen Mike James, A.J. Highsmith, and Jamal Reid.

“We have a great relationship, Miller said. “The four of us are together most of the time and sometimes Ray Ray. We have a great relationship.”

Miller and Reid, who is also redshirting this season, have nearly all of their classes together.

“He’s a funny guy,” Miller said. “He talks real fast so I just be laughing at some of the things he says.”

Reid, a safety from Mayo, Fla., has also enjoyed getting to know Miller.

“He’s one of those laid-back cool type-of-dudes,” Reid said. “He gets crazy sometimes and likes to joke around a lot and have fun.”

While Reid is planning on being busy with playing on the baseball team in the spring, Miller is contemplating whether or not to run track, where he was consistently a 10.5-10.8 sprinter in the 100-yard dash at k!llian.

“I’m debating right now should I run or shouldn’t,” he said. “It depends on how my grades are this semester. If I do good, then I’ll probably run. But if I didn’t do too good, then I probably stay off and track and stay focused on school in the spring.”

Miller will also have a decision on whether or not he wants to keep his No. 27 jersey or look for a new number although Vaughn Telemaque wears No. 7, Miller’s number in high school.

“Twenty-seven is a good number,” he said. “I am debating, should I changed it next year or should I just keep it my whole college career. I don’t know yet.”

Hurricane fans will have to wait until next year for ‘Miller Time’, but as the saying goes, ‘All good things are worth waiting for’.

Harris Leads Nation in Pass Deflections
Oct. 30, 2009

By: David Lake





Brandon Harris
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- University of Miami cornerback Brandon Harris is the nation’s leader with 12 passes defended.

But Harris isn’t satisfied with leading the country in passes defended. He wants to lead the nation in interceptions.

“I am one of the nation’s leaders in pass breakups, but that is not my goal,” Harris said. “I want to be one of the nation’s leaders in interceptions. I am just going to have to work harder. It shows that I am on the right rack, but I still have a long way to go.”

Harris has one interception on the year and he feels like he has had opportunities to make more interceptions, but they haven’t bounced his way.

“I have had opportunities and I had one this year that was called back,” Harris said. “With some of those pass breakups I think I need to be more aggressive and go for the pick. People remember interceptions, not pass breakups.”

Miami’s defense currently ranks 32nd in the country, allowing 194 yards per game and nine touchdowns. With all the new players that have played in the secondary this season like Sam Shields, Harris says he likes the way the pass defense has played.

“I am very pleased with the pass defense,” Harris said. “Those guys are coming in and doing more than what they were expected to do. We have a lot of young guys and new guys. Sam Shields is new to the position and a lot of people don’t realize it takes years of experience to master it. I think DeMarcus Van Dyke has improved as much as anybody on this team. He makes a big play in every game to help us out.”

Miami’s secondary though is coming off their poorest performance of the season, allowing 326 yards passing and three touchdowns. Harris talked about what needs to change this week for the secondary to play better against Wake Forest.

“Just being on the same page and not allowing big plays,” Harris said. “That was the gameplan coming in and with a team like Clemson and the explosiveness they have on offense, you can’t let them make big plays like that because it will keep them in the game.”

This week Miami is facing one of the top quarterbacks in the ACC in Riley Skinner, who leads the ACC with 16 touchdown passes.

“He looks very disciplined,” Harris said. “He likes to throw a lot of short routes and check downs. I haven’t seen him throw too many interceptions on film He looks very disciplined and confident in his receivers.”

The defense will be challenged this week due to the absence of linebacker Sean Spence because of an injury he sustained against Clemson.

“It is going to take a huge defensive effort to help fill the role for Sean,” Harris said. “He played a huge role for the defense with his communication and the way he helped everybody get lined up. We are going to have to focus on our a.ssignments and hopefully everybody takes that approach and knows their own a.ssignments.”

QB Harris Wants to Limit Mistakes
Oct. 30, 2009

By: Rudy Rodriguez-Chomat





Jacory Harris and coach Randy Shannon look to get back to their winning ways on Saturday.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- He’s not perfect. He doesn’t claim to be, but people seem to expect him to always be perfect, never make a mistake and always be on top of his game.

But University of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris knows the truth. He knows that he will make mistakes, he will throw interceptions, he won’t always make the right read, but the key is limiting those mistakes, limiting the interceptions, keep them to a bare minimum while making great plays as well.

And for Harris, it’s always been about bouncing back from his mistakes. He did that very thing after throwing an interception for touchdown only to throw a 69-yard touchdown pass one play later to Travis Benjamin.

“I am the type of guy that, I don’t know, I look at it, people come to me and say you must have a lot of pressure on your back, but it’s a part of a game, there are quarterbacks that have done worse and quarterbacks that have done better it’s how you bounce back,” Harris said. “Interceptions aren’t okay, but at the same time you got to bounce back and help your team.”

Being successful though has always been a part of Harris. Losing is something that’s rarely happened to him, but it happened for the second time this season and when it did happen against Clemson, Harris was left a little numb to the situation, certainly shocked by it.

“It is tough, almost like losing your dog, you sit there and like, I don’t know I was standing up when I seen Kyle Parker throw the crossing route, he caught it and he scored, I was like offense on the field, and even though I knew the game was over, come on offense has to be on the field and know we have one more drive, I sat down and thought I can’t believe this,” Harris said. “Clemson is a great team. That was a great opponent, we came into the week knowing we was going to face someone that didn’t have just someone you could just run over, they had good players at every position.”

While there is still some shock because of the loss, Harris said the team knows it has to move forward.

“You see people in the locker room say damn, I can’t believe we lost still, but in practice, everyone is running around full speed, having fun, this can’t ever happen again, we dug ourselves too deep of a hole and we can’t let it go any deeper,” Harris said.

But don’t think Harris is going to change his approach to the game. He’s going to continue to be aggressive, continue to try to make plays, throw the ball downfield and lead Miami to wins. What he’s done has worked so far though as the ‘Canes are 5-2 when few outside of the program thought they could be in this position prior to the season.

“I am still approaching the game the same, we are 5-2, we are still in a comfortable situation, but we’re not where we want to be at, if being aggressive and sometimes making the correct reads got us to 5-2, I just have to limit my mistakes. I am the type of person that can put it behind me and get better,” Harris said. “My confidence level is still high and that’s what keeps me confident, my team believes in me, I believe in my team, mistakes happen that’s a part of football, we’ve won 5 games doing the things correct and they know we can do the things the right way, they know we’ll get the job, that’s basically what it is.”

“Now it’s time to move on to Wake Forest and pay attention to them, study what they are showing and go up there and take care of business.”

RT Pipho Big in Big Games
Oct. 29, 2009

By: David Lake





Matt Pipho
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- When it comes to playing in big time games against big time defensive linemen, right tackle Matt Pipho has stepped up this year.

Against Clemson and Oklahoma--two teams who have had the best defensive lines Miami has seen this year--Pipho was one of the top linemen for UM.

Coach Randy Shannon says he has been impressed with the way Pipho has played against his biggest competition.

“Everybody downgrades Pipho, but we see a lot in Pipho,” Shannon said. “We see he can get things done for us and it shows. In big games he steps up. Now he needs to be consistent on every game and not take time off.”

Pipho says he was confident in how he and the offensive line prepared for star Clemson defensive ends DeQuan Bowers and Ricky Sapp.

“As an offensive line I thought we prepared well last week,” Pipho said. “I was confident in how we prepared, but we didn’t get it done so I didn’t play good enough. I made less mistakes than I usually do. Everybody makes mistakes, but there are still mistakes being made.”

Pipho, though, wasn’t thrilled with his performance against Clemson.

“We have two losses now, so it was not good enough,” Pipho said.

Because Miami does not have much depth now on the offensive line, Pipho has had to play nearly every snap on offense from start to finish.

“It is not that bad,” Pipho said. “It is nothing anything near summer conditioning.”

Against Central Florida two weeks ago, Pipho and the offensive line did not have a good performance. Miami allowed six sacks to UCF.

“Central Florida’s ends were some of the toughest I have faced all year,” Pipho said. “It is not like I didn’t get up for them. They were well coached. Clemson was well coached too, but they are a different type of defensive line and more suited for guys like me.”

One area Miami will need to clean up this week against Wake Forest is the penalties that are committed. UM ranks 105th in the country, averaging eight penalties per game. If the offensive line can manage to limit their holding penalties and false start penalties, it would go a long way toward cutting down those penalties.

“We can’t blame it on one unit or one person,” Pipho said. “There is a lot of mistakes. We have to fix them and move forward.”

BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN

Lately, Jacory Harris' emotions have fluctuated almost as much as the score in last weekend's Clemson game.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes lost to the Tigers 40-37 in overtime.

On Monday, Miami's sophomore quarterback was named a semifinalist for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, the oldest prize that honors the top college quarterback.

On Tuesday, Harris was reminded during the Hurricanes' weekly news conference that he leads the Atlantic Coast Conference in interceptions with 10 -- three against Clemson.

On Wednesday, an ACC teleconference moderator told reporters Harris was ranked 10th nationally in passing efficiency.

``People always come up to me and say, `I know you must have a lot of pressure on your back, and you must worry about this and worry about that,' '' Harris said. ``I'll be like, `It's part of the game. There are quarterbacks who have done worse and quarterbacks who have done better. It's just how you bounce back.' ''

Harris seems to be handling the recent loss, and any related criticism, the same way he handles his offense: with a calm, steely resolve to overcome and look toward the next challenge. For the No. 18 Canes (5-2, 2-2 ACC), that challenge will begin at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Wake Forest (4-4, 2-2).

Harris said his interception lapses have been somewhat of a surprise, though he vows to keep progressing from his mistakes. The Demon Deacons, ranked 47th in pass defense, have five interceptions.

Before the three picks against Clemson (one of the passes deflected off receiver Leonard Hankerson's hands) Harris had an interception-free game at UCF -- after throwing five the previous three games. He has completed 122 of 189 passes (64.6 percent) for 1,774 yards and 13 touchdowns. Being sacked 18 times hasn't helped.

UM coach Randy Shannon said the interceptions are all part of Harris' growing pains. But Shannon was not as tolerant after the loss to Clemson.

THREE TOO MANY

``Sometimes when you start getting in a [bad] rhythm you start going and going and going,'' Shannon said. ``No matter how you call it, the three interceptions he had is three too many.''

Harris said he studies his game film, evaluates himself and then adjusts.

``There's a lot to learn,'' he said. ``There are a lot of things to look at when you're on the field; a lot of stuff to look at while you have the rush of the defensive linemen.

``It's not random. I know in the [Clemson] game there were some interceptions I was trying to take a chance on. Sometimes the ball doesn't fall the right way. Some can be tipped. Some are Hail Marys before halftime. The other one was a missed read by me.''

Harris said the Clemson loss was particularly hard to get past.

``It was tough,'' he said. ``Almost like losing your dog. I was standing up at the time when I saw Kyle Parker throw the [winning] crossing route and when he caught it and he scored, I was like, `Come on! The offense has got to be on the field. I know we have one more drive.' Then I just sat down and was like, `I can't believe this.' ''

STILL COMFORTABLE

He said he takes full responsibility for the interceptions, but he's still going to approach the game the same way.

``I don't want to change,'' Harris said. ``We're 5-2. We're still in a comfortable situation, but we're not where we want to be at. If being aggressive and making correct reads but sometimes slipping up got us at 5-2, I have to keep doing it but just try to lower my mistakes. The confidence level is still high and that's what keeps me confident, because I know my team still believes in me, and I still believe in my team. Mistakes happen. That's a part of football.''

CB Dent Joins the Class, Commits to Miami
Nov. 1, 2009

By: Nate Adelson





Many thought that Glades Central cornerback Greg Dent would be committing to Florida State as soon as they extended an offer.

The offer never came, Dent (6-0, 180) got tired of waiting, and he decided to end his recruitment today by committing to Miami.

I guess I got tired of waiting, waiting for other offers and all that so I just did it, Dent said. They told me I could come in and play as a true freshman because they dont have that many good defensive backs. I told Coach Hurtt that I committed and he was happy and shocked. He thought I had put them down on my list so he was just happy.

Dent always liked playing wide receiver better than cornerback but event thought he did commit to play defense, that might not be all for the talented playmaker.

I committed to play cornerback but Im going to try to work out something so I can play a little bit of receiver too, Dent said.

Dents abilities at wide receiver are well documented, as he has 28 catches for 667 yards and 9 touchdowns so far for the 8-0 Glades Central Raiders.

Now that hes a Cane commitment, Dent added that he will work towards getting a third member of his team (Dent and Clive Walford) to join the Miami class in safety Travis Bell.

Dent has high hopes for his career in the Orange and Green, and is looking to help restore the program back to the national championship level.

Im ready to be a Miami Hurricane and win some national championships, Dent said.

Johnson is Miami's 22nd commitment for the 2010 class and joins quarterback Stephen Morris, running backs Darion Hall and Storm Johnson, fullback Maurice Hagens, tight ends Clive Walford and Andrew Tallman, offensive linemen Tavadis Glenn, Jonathan Feliciano, Shane McDermott, and Malcolm Bunche, defensive end David Perry, defensive tackles Todd Chandler and Louis Nix, linebackers Javarie Johnson, Kevin Nelson, Tyrone Cornileus, and Travis Williams, cornerbacks Jeremy Davis, Raheam Buxton, Kacy Rodgers, and Devonta Davis.

Shannon Reaction: The Day After Wake Forest
Nov. 1, 2009

By: Rudy Rodriguez-Chomat





Randy Shannon.
Two years ago and more than likely last year too, if the University of Miami fell behind 17-0 in the first half and was down 27-14 going into the fourth quarter, the result would have been a loss.

But the ‘Canes responded to adversity and came away with a miraculous 28-27 win at Wake Forest Saturday afternoon.

And even though the defense looked awful, it’s a whole lot easier watching film even when you get torched when you win rather than when you lose. Victory eases a lot of the irritation that goes along with giving up 555 yards of offense against a team that had no business even being on the same field with you.

Coach Randy Shannon met with the media Sunday afternoon and reflected on the win.

Opening Statement

"After evaluating the film, I am proud of this football team and the way they responded on a tough situation last night from being 17 points down in the beginning of the game, responded and didn’t panic and came back in the fourth quarter 13 points down it shows you how far we’ve come as a football team and shows you how much character this team has."

News and Notes

• There were many questions about the amount of deep passes Miami threw, but according to Shannon, the ‘Canes were trying to take advantage of all the blitzing Wake Forest was doing and use the one-on-one situations to their advantage. In turn, yes, the ‘Canes were looking to go deep against the blitzes.

• On the defensive performance, Shannon was happy with the way the defense responded in the second half. Shannon said, “The biggest thing I am proud of in the defense is that we came out in the second half and made some adjustments. We gave up a lot of yards, but we only gave up seven points. I think that was the biggest adjustment that we did which allowed us to stay in the football game because when you give up a lot of yards and only seven points, that gives you the opportunity in the second to come back and win the game which we did. Am I disappointed about the yards, yes, but I am also proud about how them guys kept playing hard to not give up any touchdowns, any points.”

• Shannon said that Wake Forest spent much of the game utilizing a short passing game which forced the ‘Canes to blitz more. He said the ‘Canes got more hits on Riley Skinner when they blitzed and that they were beater on the one touchdown in the second half on a blitz, but things like that will happen.

• Shannon said the team misses Sean Spence, Ray Ray Armstrong and Eric Moncur tremendously. He said that Spence brings so much to the defense and Armstrong was starting to really play well and is the type of player that is very physical. “It’s really hampered us, now you’ve got to get other guys ready to go,” Shannon said.

• Shannon said he’s not really paying attention to the ACC race and rather every game on an individual basis.

• Shannon gave tremendous praise to Tervaris Johnson who he said was named the Offensive Player of the Game for his touchdown catch, the touchdown he blocked for on Damien Berry’s run and the block he made that allowed Aldarius Johnson to come down with the huge first down grab on 4th and 16 on the final drive. “Tervaris Johnson made that play work, he actually hit the (blitzing) corner. If he doesn’t hit the corner it’s a sack and the game is over with. It gave Jacory and Aldarius the opportunity to make that play. We voted him the player of the game on offense, what he did protection, helping score a touchdown and scoring a touchdown,” Shannon said.

• Shannon compared this team to the teams in the past when the ‘Canes were trying to get back into national contention. He compared this team to the one that beat West Virginia with a blocked punt and the comeback at Boston College. “Those games show you where your team is starting to evolve,” Shannon said.

• He also said this team is very good, but it’s a matter of the players understanding it that the results will come if they simply put in the work.

• The ‘Canes played a lot of nickel coverage against Wake Forest. Shannon said it had nothing to do with injuries and was a result of situations. He said that when the tight ends moved to the outside, he would prefer to have a defensive back covering the tight end on the outside rather than a linebacker.
