Coaching Failed us Indeed

Kicking to CJ Spiller with less than a minute in the half is inexcusable

especially with our two best special teamers out ( Futch and D. Berry Just Scored a 25 yarder ) not in the play.... what the f**k was they thinking????

the defense has been leaky all season, clemson just took advantage.

no healthy d-line = no d-line push = QB getting 10 seconds to throw = wide open receivers = 40-37 loss

To be real, canes are def. on the come up and shannon's got us contending before we were even supposed to, but we need to completly redo the defense and get some damn athletes back there

When you sit back and look, to go from defenses with dudes like meriweather, calais, beason, and secondaries filled with first round prospects to now having jared campbell, sam shields, jo jo, darryl sharpton, and randy phillips playing major roles. No wonder the defense has been so soft

the secondary cant cover....brandon harris is our #1 corner and even he gets burned way too much.

clint hurtt needs to teach the linemen better techniques, i dont see them do swim moves or clubs or anything.

the crazy thing is with how shaky the o-line is we're still running the ball well and putting up points on offense, but that means nothing if you cant stop teams when you have to.

I think Allen Bailey is the only one i've seen using swim moves and actually moving his hands.

It's just that we need to create some preassure. Somehow. Totally unacceptable to let a rookie QB stay back there for 10 secs waiting for a receiver to open

In the NFL, when a rookie QB is in the game, what do defenses do? BLITZ THE f**k OUTTA HIM :applause::applause:

yeah... somewhat..

But I think the one that hit me the most was the loss against Georgia Tech in 2005.

nah...

the worst one had to be definitely the 48-0 beatdown Virginia gave us in the last game at the OB I almost went on a rampage...

Miami's Matt Bosher has converted nine of 11 field-goal attempts for an 81.8 percent average - tied for third-best in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Amid the disappointment and media scrutiny of the University of Miami's 40-37 overtime loss to Clemson, the finger-pointing took many directions.



But at least one player emerged unblemished in the crossfire: kicker Matt Bosher.



On Monday, the punter/kicker was named one of three Lou Groza National Collegiate Place Kicker Award ``Stars of the Week'' after kicking field goals of 51 and 49 yards in regulation -- and a 22-yarder in overtime.



And now, Bosher and his teammates are preparing for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, a game that Bosher aced last year with field goals of 36, 52 and 43 yards.



UM won that game by six points.



Bosher said his teammates were mentally recovered from the whirlwind Clemson game that had nine lead changes and, except for the first quarter, seemingly nonstop scoring.



``Clemson was a good game, a lot of back and forth,'' Bosher said. ``But we didn't take advantage of opportunities presented to us. This loss hurt because it was a long-fought game and there was never one decisive moment that was like, `OK, we're going to pull ahead or they're going to pull ahead.'



``We're still on track. The loss was tough, but I'm confident we have a great team.''



Bosher, a junior from Jupiter, has made 66 consecutive extra points and leads UM in scoring this season with 53 points. He has converted nine of 11 field-goal attempts for an 81.8 percent average -- tied for third best in the Atlantic Coast Conference. All three of his attempts from more than 45 yards were good.



Bosher's only misses, relatively easy attempts of 26 and 31 yards against Georgia Tech, came when he lifted his head.



``It was a focus error,'' he said. ``It happens.''



STRONG PUNTING His punting also has been strong. Bosher averages 42 yards a punt, with 13 of his 25 landing inside the 20-yard line and five of them more than 50 yards long. Bosher booms his kicks, aiming for a hang time between 4.8 and five seconds. All three punts against Clemson were signaled fair catches, a punter's ultimate goal.



``We have a lot of great athletes on the punt team and they make sure the returners are catching the ball with them in their face,'' he said. ``We're there for each other. We have each other's backs.''



This week, Bosher especially has Alex Uribe's back. Uribe, a walk-on kickoff specialist, is a very close friend of Bosher's. But after Uribe kicked directly to Clemson return star C.J. Spiller and Spiller ran 90 yards for a touchdown, Shannon replaced Uribe with Bosher.



``We'll make them battle,'' Shannon said Sunday, ``but if today was the [game], we'd go with Bosher. Uribe just wasn't in it. Bosher started doing a great job squibbing, kicking in the corner and things like that, which helped us.''



Bosher said Uribe would be ready for Wake Forest. ``Everyody has a little rough patch here or there,'' Bosher said. ``Alex is a great kicker and he's going to come back strong. He's ready. He's kind of new to this whole thing. This is his first year really playing. But he knows that once you do something good or bad you move on and go to the next thing.



``What happened in the past isn't really important now.''



Bosher said he has made his own mistakes, such as kicking the ball through the end zone at UCF after punt snapper Chris Ivory soared his snap way over Bosher's head. As it turned out, UM was penalized for the illegal kick, UCF got the ball on the UM 2, and the Hurricanes had a goal-line stand.



LESSON LEARNED ``Yeah, it worked out in our favor,'' Bosher said, ``but next time I have to pick it up and throw it out of the back of the end zone for a safety.''



Bosher credits holder Matt Perrelli, snappers Ivory and Jake Byrne (field goals) and his blockers for his success. He said he expects to graduate this spring, and eventually go to law school -- hopefully after an NFL career.



``Going to law school and playing football would be tough,'' he said, ``so we'll have to see what happens next year. For now I have to focus on right now, and this week it's Wake Forest.''

BTW This is Manny Navarros grades for the game

I couldn't make it to Saturday's game -- I had a wedding -- but I spent my Sunday night breaking down the game on my DVR. Before I get to the grades, a few thoughts:

UM-Clemson -- My overwhelming sense from this game was a flat out lack of aggression and confidence from the Canes, whose reputation has always been quite the opposite. It was almost as if they were playing not to lose. I'm not just talking about the three running plays by Javarris James in the fourth quarter when UM was trying to run the clock out. I had less of a problem with that and more of a stink with the overall attitude. Where was the pressure on Kyle Parker? Why did John Lovett not go after the redshirt freshman with more than just his four-man front? Where were the deep downfield passes from Jacory Harris? Yes, he connected on that 69-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin. But why did that feel like the only time Mark Whipple went for the big play? Bottomline, one team came in the 10th-ranked team in the country according to the BCS and the other was 3-3. Yet, you couldn't tell which team UM was supposed to be. That should speak volumes to you about this program and where it is still at.

-- Three times the Canes took over on offense with the lead (following a defensive stop) and three times they looked uncomfortable having it. The sign of a great team is that when it has its opponent reeling, it goes for the jugular. Even against UCF two weeks ago, you didn't get that sense from this Miami team. Ditto in the Oklahoma game and ditto against Georgia Tech. If you want to really be the best, you have to have that attitude. This Miami football team is improved. It is Top 25 worthy. But it still isn't back to Canes standards. And Randy Shannon knows it.

-- Before you go handing CJ Spiller the Heisman trophy like a certain pair of radio announcers were about to do Saturday night (I was listening to the broadcast on my way to the reception) let's take a look at what Clemson's star running back really did Saturday. He ran back a kickoff 90 yards for a score. Not sure if you guys noticed it, but there was nobody within 25 yards of Spiller when he caught the low-line drive kick from Alex Uribe (Orlando Franklin might have been able to bring that kick back for a score). Spiller also had a 56-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Parker on a play when a gimpy Sean Spence (who shouldn't have been on the field) tried to cover him with no help. And Spiller had a 48-yard burst in the fourth quarter to move Clemson deep down field (he had 33 yards on his 13 other carries). I'm not saying Spiller isn't a great player. I'm just saying he wasn't Heisman-esque or the reason UM lost this game.

-- Enough with the Kool-aid drinking. Miami is flat out weak when it comes to pass blocking and not nearly deep enough at linebacker. In fact, other than running back and receiver, this team really has no real depth right now. For all the talk about Ben Jones, Brandon Washington and the other young linemen Miami has and how light bulbs are coming on, there is a reason Matt Pipho was still on the field for every offensive snap. Those other guys aren't ready. Ditto for Spence. He came back out in the third quarter (50 percent at best) and only got pulled after he got burned for the 56-yard score. What else does it say when the Canes would prefer to have a banged up Spence instead of a 100-percent Ramon Buchanon?

And now to the grades...

> Quarterback play: Before you go ripping Jacory Harris for his three picks, remember this is a guy working with an average at best offensive line and still just a sophomore. Is he making bad decisions? Yes. The interception before halftime was pathetic. The lob pass taken back for a touchdown by DeAndre McDaniel was Kirby Freeman-esque. But Jacory is still better than anything this program has had at quarterback in awhile. And frankly, I think this dink and dunk offense Mark Whipple had him in Saturday doesn't play up to his strengths or Miami's big and fast receivers. Harris finished 17-of-27 for 256 yards, 2 TDs and three picks. But he might have done a little better if he hadn't thrown the ball just six times after UM scored on the opening possession of the second half. Yes, he threw the ball just six times. It goes back to that aggression talk earlier. Grade: C.

> Running backs: If any unit deserved a helmet sticker for their effort Saturday, it was the Canes backfield trio of Graig Cooper, Javarris James and Damien Berry. Together, they produced 210 yards on 31 carries -- a whopping 6.7-yard average against one of the country's best run defenses. So where did the Canes falter? Picking up blitzes. James and Cooper both were slow getting to blocks and it led to two costly sacks in this game that derailed drives. Grade: B.

> Receivers/tight ends: Big ups to Leonard Hankerson, who has clearly taken a step forward yet again. He finished with five catches for 87 yards and a touchdown, including a beautiful one-handed grab on the opening drive. Too bad we didn't see him again after his six-yard touchdown catch. At least I didn't see him. Travis Benjamin also looked good, hauling in the 69-yard touchdown. We've seen him do it more than a few times now, beating his man one-on-one and getting wide open downfield. It's a shame we don't see it more often than once every two or three games. Grade: A.

> Blocking: If all Miami's starting five had to do was run block, they'd probably be one of the better units in the country. But unfortunately, stopping hard charging defensive ends and picking up blitzes simply isn't their strength. Orlando Franklin, who moved outside to left tackle on several plays, provided evidence why he's a guard, getting beat twice on what turned out to be big Clemson plays. Much maligned right tackle Matt Pipho had a better effort. But collectively, it wasn't a great night. When you can't run screens well or give your quarterback nearly as much time as the other team does, you aren't winning the other half of the battle up front. Grade: C.

Marcus Robinson celebrates his 56-yard fumble return for a score > Front seven: Except for one 48-yard Spiller run, the Canes run defense was spectacular. Linebacker Colin McCarthy was all over the place. He absolutely crushed Spiller, causing a fumble in the first half. Darryl Sharpton did a good job swarming to the football. In all, the Tigers finished with 84 yards on 34 attempts for a 2.5 average. Take away the 48-yard burst and Clemson had 36 yards on 33 attempts. Now let's talk pass rush... There wasn't much. Allen Bailey provided nearly all of it. His sack, strip and fumble led to Marcus Robinson's 56-yard fumble return for a score. But other than that, Kyle Parker had time to Facebook his friends in the pocket. Miami blitzed him on occasion. But it wasn't nearly enough to disrupt him. And the four offsides penalties? Just bad. This game just provided further proof UM's defensive line, while better against the run, still has a long way to go. Grade: C.

> Secondary: When you don't get much of a pass rush, it's really hard to cover downfield for more than five to six seconds. Miami fell victim to that way too often. But the big breakdowns were in the middle of the field. I'm not sure if it's Darryl Sharpton's responsibility or Colin McCarthy or Randy Philips, but Clemson's tight ends had a field day in the middle of the field. They combined to catch nine passes and quite a few on third and long for first downs. The game-winning touchdown catch by Jacoby Ford? Middle of the field. John Lovett might want to look into that little problem. Grade: D.

> Special teams: Anytime you give up a kickoff return for a score, you've had a bad day. But aside from Alex Uribe's mental gaff -- he was supposed to squib kick it instead of giving CJ Spiller a head start in a foot race -- Miami's special teams was very, very good. By that I mean Matt Bosher. He had two long field goals and did a great job on kickoffs and punts. He got plenty of hangtime to negate the punt returns (Clemson didn't have any) and he even was able to salvage good field position despite having to kickoff from his own 15. Grade: C.

> Coaching: Here's where the biggest breakdowns happened. Not only did the Canes have to burn timeouts again because they didn't have the right personnel on the field, this team was never in the right mind set. Both Lovett and Whipple needed to be more aggressive in this game. Lovett with the blitz and Whipple with his best weapon -- his receivers. Neither called for their best weapons enough. Grade: D.

There is a rumor going on that started at the gatornation board that Jacory Harris is an open homos3xual. I guess that a player on the team told this dude, and then a UM alum confirmed it. Anyone hear anything about this?

I always thought he looked a lil sweet
