Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Don't be surprised to see a new face in the Hurricane backfield on Saturday.

True freshman running back Javarris James has run with the first team in coming out drills this week and is getting most of the reps with the ones in practice ahead of Charlie Jones.

But coach Larry Coker stopped short of formally announcing him as the starter following practice today.

"He's in the mix to start," Coker said. "He's definitely in contention to start. He'll play a lot. He's going to pick up his role a little bit."

For his part, James said he's excited about the opportunity for an expanded role and potentially earning his first start ever as a Hurricane.

"So far I'm working with the ones," James said. "It's a gametime decision (if I'll start). I might, I might not. I'm preparing in every way I can.

"I'm doing pretty well, I'm picking up on more things."

Asked, if he does start, what that would mean to him, James said, "It's a goal. I'm really looking forward to it if it does happen."

James said he was told on Monday that he might start.

"Coach (Rich) Olson told me I'd be working with the ones a bit more now," James said. "I'm ready, man. I'm excited to go out there and try to do my thing."

Quarterback Kyle Wright said his expectations for James are "High. He's gotten a lot of work in practice this week (wiht the ones) and has done a good job. He's not a freshman anymore. He's gotten quality playing time in the first three games. I think he'll step in and do a good job."

* Coker reiterated that Dedrick Epps has been elevated at H-back with Chris Zellner out with injury. And Coker said, "James Bryant is in that mix also."

Coker added, "We really miss Chris. He's very proficient at that position."

If UM opens with Epps at H-back, it's conceivable that four true freshmen will be in the offensive lineup: Epps, James, Sam Shields and Jason Fox.

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Hurricane center Anthony Wollschlager is a senior leader.

And he has a good sense of the heartbeat of this team.


"We're just getting ready to get back out there, get to work, put the past behind us," he said. "We're coming off a real good bye week and are ready to go."

Wollschlager says he hasn't had a hard time blocking out the negativity surrounding the program after a 1-2 start to the year.

"I don't read the papers too much, don't watch too much of the local news and stuff like that," he said. "So I don't surround myself with it. It's here and there, but you have to set that aside and really focus on our goals and go from that on, don't listen to too many people from the outside."

Of course, Wollschlager knows coach Larry Coker is very much on the hot seat.

He's asked if the criticism of Coker is fair.

"It comes with the job," Wollschlager said. "A lot of people are going to be out there -- who is on the hot seat? Who is doing well, who is doing badly? You can't control that unless you're playing perfect, and a lot of teams don't play perfect. You jut take it with a grain of salt.

"You always want to win a national championship, shoot for as high as you can. But still there's everything on the table left for us Ė we can attain an ACC Championship, go to a BCS bowl game. But for us to attain that we have to take it one game at a time. That's what guys are stressing."

With Coker's job on the line if the team doesn't right itself, Wollschlager is asked if that makes him want to play harder.

"Every game I play with heart, as hard as I can," Wollschlager said. "This makes no difference that he's in a tough spot with a lot of the lights on him. I think it adds a little bit, but to say `Play even harder,' there are a lot of guys playing really hard."

If Miami is going to turn things around, a start will be producing on offense in the second half. The team hasn't scored a second half point in the losses this year.

Asked if there have been a lot of changes made at halftime, Wollschlager said, "Not really, just tweaking things to what defenses have given us, not changing the game plan totally. At halftime we talk about what went wrong, what we did well, different blitzes, summarizing the first half and game planning for the second half.

"The second half, the two DI teams we've played we haven't done well at all in the second half. What that problem is, there's speculation it's this or that. We just have to come out fired up. We come out of the locker room not as fired up as in the beginning. Both FSU and Louisville we came out swinging (at the start of the game) but then trickled off. In the past we've had slow starts and then came around later on. Now it's more out with a bang first go and then diminish from there. We have to figure out some way to come out swinging and keep swinging all the way through. I can't say I've exactly figured it out. It's a number of factors. It's just the mental toughness of the team in general going into halftime. You have a missed field goal, a fumble, and guys are going `Come on.' You're only down a couple of points. The second half is a whole new ballgame."

Finishing is being stressed this week.

"Finish on every aspect of the game Ė on every single play you need to finish," Wollschlager said. "You can't get ahead of yourself. You need to finish every single time. The minute you start looking ahead to the next play, the second quarter, what you're trying to do gets away from you. You have to concentrate on finishing one task at a time."

* Of having Reggie Youngblood and Tyrone Byrd back healthy for this weekend's game, Wollschlager said, "We kind of fool around with them because they're both from Texas. Playing Houston, we're like `How convenient. We're playing the hometown team and you guys are coming back. The fourth game into the season, how convenient.'

"But those guys are very critical to the offensive line success and to the team success. Those guys are two starters, really. Chris Rutledge and Jason Fox right now are doing a real good job. But when (Youngblood and Byrd) got hurt they were starters. For them coming back, it adds depth, adds morale. We've got our guys back. We have everybody going into battle together and we're ready to go."

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
TAVARES GOODEN Q&A

Q: Larry Coker's job security is in question. What's your take on that?


Gooden: Coach Coker haters, I just block them out. That's how I feel. There's going to be haters everywhere. You need people to hate. That's the fire, you know? So we're just going to go out there and keep going. There's nothing wrong with coach Coker. He won one (championship) in 2001. How is he not a good coach? He won a championship. We have to go out there and play for him just like he's coaching for us. It's about coach Coker. He gave all of us a four-year ride. He did this for us. It's time for us to return the favor for coach Coker. He's a wonderful guy, wonderful coach. It's time for us to live up to our part of it.

Q: Do opponents still fear Miami?

Gooden: I'm not even sure. We're like everybody's national championship. We have to realize that and go out there like it's our national championship as well for every game. That's the key this week. We can't take the opponent lightly. We have to go out and play hard for four quarters.

Q: Talk about Houston's team.

Gooden: They have a great offense. Their offensive coordinator does a good job, they have misplaced personnel and things like that. We'll work on some of the key plays they do, some of the motion schemes and go out there and be ready for Saturday.

Q: How big is it making sure the right calls are being made on the field for this game?

Gooden: It's real big, because you go out there and slip and don't play four quarters against Houston, they're going to come out with a W. They say defense wins championships, so we have to go out there and win a championship. And this is our championship on Saturday.

Q: Talk about the second half problems.

Gooden: I think it's a lack of focus. Guys are running around, not thinking, not paying attention. I think that's a key part of it Ė guys not being focused. If we focus and everyone stays humble and plays football, we'll be fine.

Q: Does anyone panic or worry about offense not scoring?

Gooden: I don't think anyone worries. We have guys on defense that can change a ballgame in a snap of a finger. Guys are anxious for the big play instead of letting it happen.

Q: Finishing is a big key.

Gooden: We're going to go out there and play. The main thing is staying focused and knowing what they're going to do.

Q: What's happened with giving up big plays on defense?

Gooden: The linebackers, D line plays run and the secondary plays pass. That's the main thing: Go out and do your job. Don't worry about doing someone else's job. You watch some of the games, a couple of times some safeties come up trying to do the linebacker's job, the linebacker tries to do the defensive lineman's job. And that messes us up as far as our defensive schemes. That's the main thing.

Q: So people are trying to do to much?

Gooden: Because it looks like things are open. But things aren't really open. It's just do your job. If everyone does their job, coach (Randy) Shannon only has to correct one guy Ė that's the guy that's messing up. But if everybody's trying to do everyone else's job, the defense doesn't work.

Q: Talk about the play of the defensive line.

Gooden: Our D line is amazing. They're working hard. We're trying to get them to where they were last year, because they were unstoppable. I think you'll see that this week.

Q: What's gone wrong on the defensive line?

Gooden: Probably thinking too much. They're trying to do too much.

The 2006 Rivals.com prep school player rankings for the recruiting class of 2007 are out, and while it's not as star-studded a group as 2006, there are plenty of players who will make an immediate impact next year and beyond. Led by New Berlin (N.Y.) Milford Academy Academy running back Graig Cooper, this year's crop is loaded with speed.


According to his coach, Cooper has added speed since high school.
Cooper, who signed with Miami in February out of Memphis (Tenn.) Melrose has been tearing things up at Milford. According to Milford head coach Bill Chaplick, Cooper has stepped up his game a notch.

"Coop is averaging more than 15 yards-per-carry through four games and has added an extra step of speed since high school," he said of his 5-foot-11, 185-pounder. "If he's not the best running back out there I'd like to see who is."

Cooper's backfield mate is former Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt running back LeSean McCoy, a much more hyped prospect coming out of high school. McCoy will also head off to Miami to play college ball.

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Glenn Sharpe Q&A

Q: What is this team's mindset?

Sharpe: We had a good week of practice. We're feeling very confident. Houston is an undefeated team, so we're just trying to look ahead to defeating Houston.

Q: Talk about Houston's offense.

Sharpe: They do a lot of things well. Their receivers are pretty explosive. A lot of them are pretty quick, fast dudes. They have a couple of tall dudes. The quarterback is very accurate, is also very smart. So we're going to have our hands full with those guys.

Q: What have you seen from their offense on film?

Sharpe: From what we've seen on film they do a lot of shifting and motion, displaced personnel.

Q: How tough is it coming off that Louisville loss?

Sharpe: I think the team, we're pretty confident. Everyone's feeling good about themselves. We're just looking forward to the Houston game

Q: How do you get back on track?

Sharpe: Just focus, not quitting, everyone staying together and believing in one another.

Q: Is it hard to focus with all the negativity in the media and with the fans?

Sharpe: We're not letting all the outside stuff affect how we play the game and affect our togetherness and unity as a football team.

Q: The media is saying you guys quit in the second half vs. Louisville.

Sharpe: That's their opinion. We know that wasn't our mindset. Things just didn't work out. We've had a good week of practice, the whole team is feeling confident and we're more than willing and able to go out and defeat Houston.

Q: Players say the word `finish' is big this week. What does `finish' mean to you?

Sharpe: Finishing is doing all the things you have to do for four quarters to get a win. That's what we plan on doing.

Q: Was there a problem with confidence against Louisville?

Sharpe: I don't think our confidence was lacking. We probably just didn't finish the game out as we should have done. That's what we focused on more last week (in practice), just finishing.

Talk about it in Gary Ferman's War Room
Coach Larry Coker said after this afternoon's practice that left tackle Reggie Youngblood is "not likely" to start on Saturday.

What is holding Youngblood back?

"He's been out with an injury, is a little bit rusty," Coker said. "He'll play a lot.

"Plus Chris Rutledge is doing a good job."

Coker said freshman Jason Fox could play both left and right tackle in the game, depending on when Youngblood is in the game.

Fox started UM's first two games at right tackle but played left tackle against Louisville when Youngblood was sidelined.

The team used Rutledge at right tackle in that game.

* Coker said freshman Dedrick Epps "has the ability" to see significant action with Chris Zellner sidelined.

"We've got him ready," Coker said. "I expect him to play Saturday."

* Coker said Jon Peattie is doing a good job in practices the last two weeks.

* Coker again hedged on who would start at tailback. Javarris James could see his first career start.

"Both (James and Charlie Jones) will play," Coker said. "Javarris will play, and he may start."
