Yea that was Latwan and it's f**ked up if true but he kind of messed everything up for himself. He's technically on track scholarship because he waited so long to commit. We haven't heard anything like this from any other freshman like Henderson, Storm, Gaines, Linder, etc. Some are getting PT some aren't but most just shut up and wait their turn.

Also like Lamar Miller, we all knew he had talent and should've saw the field last year but Randy thought it would be best to redshirt him and now he's getting his chance and we didn't hear anything like this from him.

So I think this could be a mixture of coaches not treating walk-ons and practice only players right (which I would hate for that to be true) and also Latwan being somewhat of a diva and him waiting so late to commit here and having to come on a track scholarship.

Shannon Reaction: Day After UNC Game
Oct. 24, 2010

By: Rudy Rodriguez-Chomat





Randy Shannon.
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Winning impressively in what many consider a big game cures all, including perceived attitudes of anger, including that of head coach Randy Shannon who seemed rather jovial following the ‘Canes 33-10 victory over North Carolina and Butch Davis Saturday night at Sun Life Stadium.

Shannon met with the media Sunday morning to give his reaction to the game after having reviewed film of the game against the Tar Heels.

Overall, he was very pleased with the win and spoke in detail about the team having fun, something that it hasn’t had much of this season, but also the continued lack of consistency in certain areas.

Although the ‘Canes dominated the final three quarters of the game, there were three holding penalties that negated big gains for the offense, something Shannon said has to be corrected.

Opening Statement

‘Watched the tape, we had some good things, bad things, guys played with a lot of emotion, lot of enthusiasm they had fun, this team is trying to create their own identity. As an a.ssistant coach each team is different, and this team is different. We got one penalty off of it (emotion) last night. You can celebrate with your teammates but don’t make it orchestrated. It was a good game, big win for the University of Miami.”

On Catching the Ball

“I am very excited about how the receivers responded. Travis Benjamin went up in traffic. As you know I’ve been pretty hard on Travis. We are going to keep working on it with him.”

On the Pass Rush

“Defensively, we got some sacks, some turnovers and some tackles for loss. Sudden change situations, we only gave up three. I saw a tremendous effort from the defense in handling the sudden change situation.”

On the Change in Attitude of the Team Following a Team Meeting Last Week

“Last two weeks I have been really animated. I seen the team start to understand the change. I don’t know what happened in the team meeting. I think Antrel (Rolle) might have said something in the team meeting about coach wants to have fun. I’ve been having fun with them the last two weeks.”

On Former Players Coming to Practice. This week it was Antrel Rolle and Eric Winston

“Most guys just pop up. Most of the time, ex-players that’s been gone for 5, 6, 7 years, it’s always good that way. Every night we have a guest speaker. Darrin Smith spoke this week. Jim Burt spoke when we played Clemson.

On When they can Afford Penalties

“End of the game where it don’t cost you. You want them to have fun. Those guys were having a lot of fun last night. As long as you don’t turn and face the team and taunt them. It was good and I think you’ll see this team play with a lot more excitement.”

On the long touchdown run

“Leverages, they sealed inside, they kicked out Ryan Hill. They ran the same play later on and it was a three yard loss.”

On the maturation process

The maturing part came up. You can change in how they challenge each other. Hankerson and Telemaque, they were challenging each other. Every time you get guys to challenge each other on the football field, that’s the intensity. Leaders will step up because they want to lead and those guys will step up on their own and those guys have done it.”

On what Shannon thought was the biggest play of the game

“The hit by Tyrone Cornelius and Ray Ray on #21, that was the biggest play. He was a their starting safety and a Special Teams guy.”

On the issues with Matt Bosher’s kicking/punting

“He’s pulling his foot. When he lands his foot in front, it’s going to go forward. Whenever Bosher kicks, if his leg goes (left), it’s going that way, when it goes (right), it’s going that way, when it lands in front, it’s going forward. He shanked two (punts) last night. It’s his drops. So we got to work on his drops and his plant.”

On being awarded the game ball by the team

“That was exciting. They told me you worked hard coach, you deserve the game ball for your first win over UNC. It was Jacory. He said that.”

On the holding penalties

“We wasn’t consistent last night. We had three holding penalties in the run game. Keep emphasizing it. Is it one person or is it the way we teaching it, those things starting to come up and you figure out what it is.”

On the leadership being developed in the locker room

“Guys step up on their own. That’s what I was talking about. Guys have team meetings for a reason. When that happens, those are the leaders of your team. Every year you always have a team meeting. But it has to be from the guys. It was positive because my years as an a.sst. coach, guys really get on each other. Whatever they said in the team meeting, it stays with them. I’ve had team meetings as a player, nothing is going to come out but the positives.”

On the win possibly lightening the negativity a bit

“It ain’t going to change, there’s going to be someone who is going to say something negative, that’s the way it is in Miami. I don’t watch ESPN. I watch Law and Order and NCIS. Whatever you guys write, I never read it anyway, so we’re always going to be buddies.”

jacory was a retard the first half.


After that, he showed the flashes from the first half of the season of last year. Our next two games should be to get the offense more glued and ready for virginia tech and georgia tech after that. I like what i saw in the second half yesterday :applause:

Another Report; DB Gorman at the game. Miami and The OSU are neck and neck for his services.

Miami (FL) Monsignor Pace High School DB Jabari Gorman was in the recruiting section for Miami's game Saturday night against North Carolina. "I had a good time," Gorman said. "Miami kind of came out with a slow start and picked it up after halftime. That excited the whole crowd."

Gorman appreciated the enthusiasm of UM's players in the game. "I saw all that," he said. "Everybody was making plays in that third quarter. They got the crowd into it, had this music playing that really got everybody dancing. It was kind of hyped, the team hyped up the fans and that was great."

Asked if the game made him feel differently about the Canes, Gorman said, "Games really don't affect me, I'm not that type of person. I like playing in games, but I just watch the game. Still, it was exciting to see them bounce back from the last home game (against Florida State). That's what really caught my attention, that they still are a strong team."

Gorman said it was a much smaller recruiting contingent compared to the Florida State game, and he spoke with Hurricane commitment Phillip Dorsett while there. "Me and Phillip grew up with each other," Goman said. "He was talking about everything. I asked him what made him make his decision, compared my ideas to his. He said for him he picked Miami because it's home, the opportunity is there to play, and being in his hometown with his family watching, that's big for him."

Gorman also has the hometown pull. But for now he has Ohio State and UM even as his top two with Alabama at No. 3. While he said the Buckeyes were his leader in past updates, he now says the two programs are neck and neck. "There's no gap," he said. "I had Ohio State ahead, but it's really nothing like a No. 1 to me, because if they were a No. 1 I should have committed. I'm leaning to neither right now."

Gorman didn't talk with coaches or Miami players while at the game, but he says he'll be checking in with several Canes this week. "I talk to some of the players all the time," he said. "Normally I'll talk to Demarcus (Van Dyke****), Stephen (Morris) or Allen Hurns, will try to get in contact with them. "And I talk to Miami coaches every week, coach (Aubrey) Hill and (Wesley) McGriff."

So when will he know where he's playing college ball? "Maybe when everything starts to settle down," Gorman said. "Right now these football games, talking to coaches ... when everything settles down, people aren't coming at me."

So far Gorman has five interceptions (with 177 return yards) for his 6-0 team. He has six touchdowns (one on a kickoff return, one on an interception return and four at wide receiver).

4 Star S. Carolina OL has Miami in his Top 5
October 25, 2010

Charleston (SC) Goose Creek High School OL Brandon Shell doesn't grant many media requests. Heck, he doesn't even run to the phone when top college head coaches from around the nation come calling.

"He's a very quiet kid, isn't into the whole recruiting thing," Shell's coach, Chuck Reedy, says. "He's not caught up in all of that. He's certainly not the norm. When (head coaches call) I have to make him come talk. He's very polite and nice, but he's not into all that."

Shell's got NFL written all over him. And not just because of his athletic 6-foot-7, 290-pound frame. His great uncle is former NFL coach Art Shell, and Reedy coached NFL talent while head coach at Baylor in the 1990s - he's the last coach to lead that program to a bowl game.

Reedy has coached at Goose Creek High for nine years, and his team is undefeated this season. "My role with Brandon's family is I'm here to help them and protect him because it could get a little bit overwhelming," Reedy said. "So that's my job. I want him to go somewhere they can prepare him for the next level because he's an NFL player if he's in the right program and stays healthy."

Shell has a top five of Miami, South Carolina, Georgia, Clemson and Alabama. He's open among the five. "Miami and Alabama are the only schools outside of this immediate area," Reedy said. "He's narrowed it to five and Miami was one of the five. He is considering them, but I don't know how seriously. Once we started the season we said let's wait till after the season to get into all of this."

Of why Shell put Miami on his list of finalists, Reedy said, "I was out the day the Miami recruiter came by here, but he made an impression on him. And also he was at the Clemson-Miami game. That could have impacted things as well."

Reedy raves about Shell's ability and says he's the type of player that can make an immediate impact at the next level. "If the Good Lord was going to make an offensive tackle, you draw up Brandon," Reedy said. "He's very athletic, has great feet. He can run, bend. He uses his hands very well. He's got everything you're looking for in an offensive lineman. His athleticism will give him a chance to play as a freshman. The thing he'll need to do is get stronger. On top of all that he's just a great kid, a wonderful young man."

Reedy says Shell will decide on his official visits after the season ends. But if the team makes a run deep into the playoffs there won't be many available weekends for visits - Shell already plans to participate in the Army All-American Bowl and the North Carolina-South Carolina Shrine Bowl. He also plays basketball - Reedy says he would have been recruited as a lower end D-I basketball prospect if he didn't play football.

"I doubt very seriously he'll take five visits," Reedy said. "I don't know how many basketball games he'll want to miss to take trips."

Press Conference News & Notes:10/26
Oct. 26, 2010

By: David Lake





Randy Shannon
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- After an impressive 33-10 win over North Carolina last week, the Hurricanes are back on the road against Virginia this week.

The No. 22 ranked Hurricanes (5-2) are still in control of their own destiny in their quest for an ACC Championship berth out of the coastal division.

Virginia (3-4) is coming off a 48-31 win over Eastern Michigan. The Cavaliers have not won an ACC game yet this season.

Read here for more news and notes going into this week’s game at Virginia.

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

Randy Shannon Opening Statement

“We have another ACC opponent in the coastal division. We have Virginia coming up this week. They are a good football team. If you watch them against USC, they played tough on defense. They did a great job of those guys playing hard the entire football game. They run the football well if you watch them the week before against North Carolina. When they played North Carolina, they were moving the ball up and down the field, but turnovers got them. They play nine men in the box and they try to stuff the run game.”

News & Notes

• Miami’s running game is averaging over 200 yards in the last four games. The attack is led by senior Damien Berry, who has had four straight games of at least 100 yards and totaled 648 yards and four touchdowns this year. “Our offensive line and our fullbacks are doing a great job,” Shannon said. “Pat Hill is doing a great job. We are running the football to set up the pass. If you look at the balance we have on this football team, we are an offense that can move the ball to score points.”

• Berry started his Miami career at safety before he was moved to running back after his redshirt year. Shannon talked about the decision to move Berry from defense to offense. “Just watching him in practice, I said he is not the same guy he was in high school and I watched some clips of him playing defensive back and running back and he excelled more on running back, so I said we are going to move him to running back and have him on scout team,” Shannon said.

• The running game particularly did a good job of setting up the pass against North Carolina. Against the Tar Heels, Miami’s receivers made multiple catches in traffic down the field. “If you say you want to stop the run and put eight or nine guys in the box, then we can still run against eight or nine in the box, then it is difficult to stop the passing game. Now you have eight guys in the box committed and then all of a sudden you see a play action pass and it is a deep ball and you get points that way.”

• Miami’s offensive line has made big improvements since last year. The Hurricanes have only allowed eight sacks this season after allowing 35 sacks last year. “I think they are working together. The difference is five new guys. Orlando is the guy that is coming back, but it is a new position. Harland Gunn flopped guard spots, Tyler Horn didn’t play, Brandon Washington didn’t play until the end of the season and you have Seantrel, who is a new guy, with Jermaine Johnson. Those five guys are coming together and watching a lot of film on their own and I think Tyler Horn has been the key to that, because he is the guy that has to call out the run blocking and the protections. When those guys watch film on their own and study on their own, it is paying off when they get to the game.”

• Virginia’s offense is similar to the scheme Miami saw from North Carolina last week. The Cavaliers feature two running backs who have run for more than 399 yards and 10 touchdowns. Keith Payne is a bigger back at 6-feet-2 and 255 pounds, who has scored 10 touchdowns this year while Perry Jones is more of a scatback who has speed and agility. “We are probably going to see the same type of offense we saw last week. It will be a pro-style offense where they try to pound the ball.”

• On defense, Shannon would like to see Miami do a better job of limiting big runs. “We are giving up too many big run plays,” Shannon said. “We will come back and fix it and guys will play well, but we have to be consistent. We are getting a lot of turnovers and a lot of tackles for loss, but for us to take that next step giving up those big plays in the run has to change.”

• Shannon on guarding against a letdown after an emotional win against North Carolina: “We just keep reminding them and if somebody is not practicing well we will just put somebody else in. A letdown is not going to be by the team, it is by an individual that thinks they already have it done. You just have to put the tape in and if they aren’t doing the things we need to get done in practice, we put somebody else in.”

• Miami has played 19 freshmen or redshirt freshmen this season. Freshmen like Seantrel Henderson, Brandon Linder, Asante Cleveland, and Kelvin Cain have already started games for Miami. “When you have guys that can come in and contribute—and like I say if you can mentally and physically handle it, you can play at the University of Miami,” Shannon said. “Any time that happens, you have somebody that is really special.”

• Shannon has gotten great production out of his safety rotation of Vaughn Telemaque, JoJo Nicolas and Ray Ray Armstong this year. “You take the pressure off one and play all three of them,” Shannon said. “Telemaque has been more the vocal guy with leadership and making plays. JoJo is a guy that no matter what happens, he is going to do it the right way every time. Ray has been doing an unbelievable job of coming in and making plays. Whether he starts or not, he is always focused. If you keep the competition and keep that thumb on them a little bit, they are going to be even better.”

• With Miami raising their interception totals from last season already, Shannon has noticed a rise in confidence from the defensive backs. “They play with a lot of enthusiasm and a lot of excitement. Ryan Hill has been put in some one-on-one situations and come up with some big plays and Van Dyke has come up with some plays compared to what he has done in the past. Also they are starting to be more physical in the running game.

Canes: Rolle's visit "put the dog back in us"

When UM lost to Florida State by 28 points back on Oct. 9, several former Hurricanes came out and criticized the lack of effort and passion they saw from their former team. Coach Randy Shannon said he didn't see enough internal leadership and policing from his players.

Antrel Rolle Last Saturday's 33-10 rout of North Carolina was almost the antithesis of the FSU loss. Players weren't just bouncing around, arguing with each other on the sidelines and creating big plays, they were drawing 15-yard penalties for excessive celebration. It was almost as if some old Hurricane spirits had taken over the bodies of the current Canes and made them enthusiastic and fun to watch again (Hey, it's almost Halloween, give me a pass).

Turns out, what really happened was that a visit from former Hurricane Antrel Rolle helped a rather large awakening take place in Coral Gables. Rolle met with the entire team and then privately with the defensive backs to deliver a strong message.

What was it? "Just to play for each other, have each other's back, have coach Shannon's back and our coaching staff's back most of all," cornerback Brandon Harris said Tuesday. "The main thing we talked about was how we've been taking a back seat and letting our coaches take the heat when as a team we have to get some things together and get some things going. You sort of hear a lot about what old guys used to do. But just to hear it come out of his mouth, it was impressive...

"He spoke his honest opinion on some issues. It was true, it was undeniable. As a team, finally hearing that from an outside influence, but also somebody still close to the family, it kind of hit close to home. Usually when you hear things you're able to wash it off. But hearing it from a guy of his caliber, who has been here, who has been a part of the program, it really stuck with us. In the back of our minds we were kind of like 'Man, we can't let these guys down.' They've established this program to where it is and we have to keep it going. He said a lot of good things to us. A lot of guys took it and ran with it the rest of the week."

Rolle has worked out in Coral Gables over the last few summers since he left for for the NFL in 2005 (8th pick overall by Arizona) and is widely admired by players in UM's secondary. Senior Ryan Hill said chose to come to UM because he thought he could develop into a player like Rolle, who was a vocal leader during his time at UM.

"I've been talking to Antrel for awhile," Hill said. "I know his mindset. He has that k!ller instinct, that dog, typical Miami player. For him to come back and talk to us, I felt like guys bought into it. One of the things he mentioned was that he didn't think we were having fun... he put the dog back in us."

That dog showed up right around the second quarter when the Hurricanes started bopping their heads and dancing during a North Carolina injury timeout. According to Hill, it even spread into a new team chant led by Spence.

"Sean does a good job getting the defense ready," Hill said. "We have his little chant now: 'Up and down, round and round.' "If it takes us having fun the rest of our games, I'm sure you guys will see a sequel to that."

Although the fun went a little too far for officials last Saturday (when Harris drew a 15-yard penalty for playing the role of a horse getting whipped by teammate Sean Spence after his interception), it doesn't appear as if Shannon is going to curtail the emotion or enthusiasm. After the game, Harris said he expected to be punished by Shannon for his antics. But it turns out, he wasn't. Shannon gave him a pass.

"Coach said he just wants me to remember next time not get penalized," Harris said. "But the fun, the dancing? He's all for that as long as we keep winning."
