CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Few people in the program know Miami quarterback Jacory Harris better than his cousin, receiver Tommy Streeter.


Andrew Weber/US Presswire Miami quarterback Jacory Harris is working on getting accustomed to a different system.
So I asked Streeter this summer for his take on why Harris has struggled so much the past two seasons.

“Sometimes I wonder how comfortable he was under the last system, coach (Mark) Whipple,” Streeter said. “I don’t know how comfortable he was. It’s very important for you to have that relationship with your players and guys to buy into your coaching strategy and what you’re saying as a leader. I feel like this staff we have now is doing a wonderful job of that, getting guys to buy in and everybody being on the same page. They’re having fun. Football shouldn’t be stressful.”

Those within the program have noticed a remarkable difference in Harris this past summer, and part of it could be simply a matter of switching to first-year offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch’s philosophy, which is designed to make Harris comfortable and take advantage of the players surrounding him.

“The offensive system that we’re built around here is a completion passing game, a high-completion passing game,” Fisch said. “What we’ve asked Jacory to do is get the ball in the playmakers’ hands, not have to be the playmaker. One of the things we’re going to ask him to do this season, is it’s not necessarily important to get a 25-yard gain by throwing the ball over 25 yards. You can get the ball on a five-yard completion and we think we can get a run and catch for that same 25 yards.

“We’re trying to make our explosive passes with a high completion percentage and know when to take the shot and not force the shot,” Fisch said. “We’ve emphasized to Jacory that a check-down is fine. A check-down to Lamar Miller could be just as good as throwing to a lot of wide receivers in the country. We’re just trying to continue to preach to him that completions are the most important thing, not trying to make that explosive play. That will come with understanding the system, understanding the coverage.”

Harris said he has a much better understanding of the offense and is able to dissect a defense in a matter of seconds. Nobody within the program spoke a bad word about Whipple, but Harris showed a greater appreciation for the opportunity he’s been given in the current system.

“Whip trusted me a lot and I trusted him in his playcalling a lot,” Harris said. “He’s a great coach. He’s very aggressive. He likes to go at it. If he feels our talent outmatches their talent, we’re going to run past them every play. And that’s his philosophy. That’s how he is. You can’t take nothing away from him, but now in this offense, it’s scheming. We see that we’ve got a matchup like with Streeter, we’re not just going to run right past him, we’ll do a simple hitch or something, just to get the ball in Streeter’s hands and let him make a play instead of me trying to make a great throw and him trying to make a great catch. Just do something easy. That’s how this offense is, just dink and dunk, drive down the field and knock time off the clock and score touchdowns. I love it.”

So does Streeter.

“It’s unbelievable how smart he is,” he said of Harris. “A lot of times, he sees things before they even take place. He knows the coverages they’re going to roll, or this guy is going to do that. He’s so sound in what they’re going to do it’s scary to me.”

There was one play during a practice this summer where Harris gave Streeter an adjustment route at the line of scrimmage before the defense even lined up and hit him for a touchdown.

“How does this guy know this stuff?” asked Streeter. “As a receiver as you’re in your stance, you’re looking at the coverage, looking at guys on their toes, how they’re playing, are they playing you with their feet flat, or where are their eyes playing? It’s just amazing how he can survey the whole field while taking on a blitz and things like that.”

Miami fans will have their doubts about Harris until he proves otherwise on the field. But for those within the program, they’ve already been convinced.

Jacory Harris remains Miami's QB
Heather Dinich [ARCHIVE]

ESPN.com | September 14, 2011

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- There is a hiding place at Miami, a sanctuary for quarterback Jacory Harris and some of his closest teammates who have been by his side on and off the field for about eight years. It's one of the first places they go when they need a home-cooked meal, a pick-me-up, or just an escape from the pressures that come with playing for one of the most storied, scrutinized programs in the country.

Nobody, they say, cooks as good as Pearline Simmons, mother of defensive lineman Marcus Forston.

There is no home-field advantage quite like the one in place for Miami's 2008 class of recruits out of Miami Northwestern High School, the nearby recruiting factory that churned out the gems of a star-studded class that was once ranked No. 1 in the nation. Parents, friends and former coaches are only minutes away from the ongoing drama that is Miami football. Their inner circle and their brotherly friendship that has only grown throughout the years have helped the Northwestern grads through mediocre seasons, a coaching change, and now an NCAA investigation that promises to drag on longer than these players have left in their college careers.

"It's helped a lot," Harris said. "I couldn't imagine me going through the same things somewhere else. Those are my brothers. Those are my blood brothers, you can say. On the field we take care of each other."

"I feel like that's everything," said receiver Tommy Streeter, Harris' cousin. "That was a big part of my decision in coming to Miami. When things get hard, you always have a support group here and people to fall back on. You can lean on their shoulders, and sometimes they can carry the burden for you."

And what a heavy burden it has been.

As Miami prepares to host Ohio State on Saturday, it does so clinging to the hope that this 2008 class, the one that arrived on campus facing expectations of astronomical proportions, can still leave with the esteemed reputation it came in with. Five of eight players who were suspended for the season opener against Maryland will return, including Harris, Miami's embattled quarterback who will start his first game since a disastrous performance in last season's Sun Bowl. Harris will replace Stephen Morris, the fan favorite who struggled in the 32-24 loss to Maryland. Those within the program are confident the staff made the right choice in Harris, but whether or not he can lead the program out of the dark in his final season as a starter and in the face of an NCAA investigation remains to be seen.

"I'm super impressed with him. I am," said first-year offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. "There's no throw he cannot make. There is no defense that seems to confuse him. He has tremendous poise. He's gone through a lot, and he comes out swinging every day."

Some fans, though, continue to swing right back.

Harris enters the Ohio State game trying to redeem himself after last year's four-interception performance against the Buckeyes. There have been plenty of memorable moments in Harris' career, but the interceptions -- at least in the eyes of many fans -- are what have defined him so far. He has thrown 50 touchdowns and 39 interceptions in his career, including 32 picks in the past two seasons. Last year, Harris said, he was afraid of throwing them.

Not this year.

"Last year I would go out there and be like, 'OK, this is a new year, no picks.' I'd drop back and be like, 'No interception, no interception,' to the point where something fluke would happen. It would be a tipped pass and get intercepted or hit the receiver and get intercepted. Now it's like, I'm winging it, just having fun, not even caring.

"Being comfortable with the offense and knowing where to go and knowing I'm protected is the biggest part," he said. "Once you know you're protected, you don't even pay attention to guys coming free."

First-year coach Al Golden thinks Harris a better player as a result of his experiences at Miami.

"I just think it's a different time and place. I think he's a different player," Golden said. "Again, Jacory is the guy this Saturday. He has established that. He has had a great camp. He's had a great demeanor. Again, sometimes we don't let people grow, we don't let them develop. We just want to go back and look at the things that they did wrong. Let's look at the things that he's done right. In terms of the offseason program, in terms of his approach, in terms of his unselfishness, in terms of his competitive nature, in terms of his command of the offense, and all those things.

Some of Harris' struggles in the past can be traced to two specific issues: first, a thumb injury that prevented him from gripping the ball properly and throwing accurately because he was more or less flicking it with four fingers, and second, a matter of being uncomfortable in former coordinator Mark Whipple's high-risk offense.

In the current system, the standard is for Harris to complete at least 62 percent of his passes.

"The offensive system that we're built around here is a completion passing game, a high-completion passing game," Fisch said. "What we've asked Jacory to do is get the ball in the playmakers' hands, not have to be the playmaker."

Miami has plenty of those, which makes the program's mediocrity in recent years all the more baffling. The 2008 class had 12 ESPNU 150 members, five of the top seven outside linebackers, and Harris, the No. 21 quarterback in his class. Eight of them were from Miami Northwestern.

Despite that, since Harris' freshman season in 2008, Miami has gone 23-17, the Canes have never played for the ACC title, have yet to win a bowl game and have finished above seven wins only once, in 2009. Last year was so disappointing that former coach Randy Shannon was fired even before the Canes lost 33-17 to Notre Dame in the Sun Bowl.

"I can't really explain what went wrong," Harris said. "… I'll tell you this, to me we're the most talented team in college football, probably have the best players at every position in college football, but it takes more than talent to win games. If you look at the past couple of years, the people who won national championships, the first-round draft picks were probably two or three each team, but with us, we go 7-6 and we get, what, eight guys drafted, 14 guys on rosters at the start of training camp? The talent is there, but you've got to understand it's not just talent that wins games. I feel like we understand that."

It's hard to understand, though, why Miami hasn't produced more, especially considering it reeled in the nation's top recruiting class four years ago.

"I don't know," said linebackers coach Micheal Barrow, a Miami alum who was retained by Golden. "Based on our record, we've been average. That's not the standard here. And unfortunately, because of that, coaches got fired. I wouldn't blame [the players] for it."

Harris' class has taken its fair share of the criticism.

Streeter can still remember his first practice as a Hurricane. At the time, the first practice was open to the public. He could hear fans lined up around the entire field chanting and wishing the players good luck. They were teenagers expected to help Miami return to national relevance. Quickly.

"Everybody was looking for us to have an immediate effect on the program," Streeter said. "It was a lot of pressure. A lot of people in our community and Cane Nation period had so many expectations being that we had won the national championship in high school, they thought all of those guys coming on the next level, we'd be able to duplicate that performance. There was a lot of hype and a lot of pressure surrounding us.

"We were nervous," he said. "Everyone wants to meet their full potential and live up to their capabilities and maximize everything that's in them. It was more so trying to do that rather than take the rock star approach like you've made it. It was more humbling than anything."

Harris said it's fair to say that the class of 2008 hasn't lived up to the hype.

"It doesn't bother me, even though it's something all of us wish we could've done, but I don't think any of us regret the things we've accomplished and the things we've been through in college," he said. "Without the things we've been through, I don't think as young men we'd be where we are right now. All of us are great young men in the community, on the field and in the school."

Nobody on the team knows Harris better than Streeter. They grew up about five minutes from each other. Even Streeter, though, doesn't know just how much of Harris' struggles have been internalized.

"He's handled it pretty well being that people put so much pressure on him," Streeter said. "The way he keeps his poise and remains calm is amazing to me. I remember last year he was getting racial comments [on Twitter] but he didn't let it affect his play. He came in every day focused and ready to make plays and help his team win. I feel like it's so much pressure on him, but he doesn't let any of it show."

It's one of the advantages of playing at home.

THE LATEST AT THE U
Miami sits at 0-1 after a bye and all eyes are now firmly planted on the season’s second opponent; Ohio State. Five missing starters are back and Sun Life Stadium will see it’s first Canes-related action since UM’s overtime loss to South Florida last November. The building will be electric for the 7:30pm ET nationally-televised ESPN showdown and between now and kickoff, we’ll be discussing the latest at ‘The U’.
Sidelines access seems to be the talk of the day, with UM limiting gameday access. Chris Freet, Miami’s a.ssociate director for communications, confirmed last night that a new policy will be in place for this weekend’s home season opener.
Boosters are no longer welcome on the sidelines – nor is anyone not specifically working the game, including administrators, trustees and deans. There will be a designated area (on the visiting sideline) where certain guests will be able to go with an ‘authorized university employee’, barring they’re escorted to and from and are gone before kickoff. Same goes for recruits, who will have to be off the field twenty-two minutes before the game begins.
Former UM players can still request sideline access on game day and while allowed to be on the ‘home’ side, they will have no access to the team’s bench area.
Another strong in-good-faith move from UM’s athletic department as it looks to remain in good favor with the NCAA, avoiding any ‘lack of institutional control’ type punishment with the investigation ends.
Head coach Al Golden has been speaking out about the bye week, practice and the Buckeyes’ motivation entering Saturday’s showdown.
Golden originally stated days back the the bye week didn’t necessarily help Miami, feeling that Ohio State’s showdown with Toledo would’ve resulted in a win where the Buckeyes didn’t have to show much offensively or defensively.
Of course that was before the Rockets clawed their way to a 27-22 loss, leading at the half and again early in the third quarter. Toledo out-gained Ohio State (338 to 301 total yards) and passed for 292 yards with two different quarterbacks.
Miami and Ohio State have now both opened up the playbook a bit, meaning there shouldn’t be too many surprises. Biggest thing in the Canes’ favor playcalling-wise comes from the addition of Jacory Harris and Travis Benjamin to the offense, though. With both sidelined against Maryland, Ohio State has no film on how both will be worked into the new offense coached by Jedd Fisch.
The world saw Stephen Morris spreading the ball around to nine receivers – with no true go-to – but with talk of Fisch creating a special package for Benjamin, the dynamic of he and Harris will be one to watch on Saturday.
Regarding Harris getting the start over Morris, Golden was questioned about his senior’s preparation this past week and what he’s done to take the reins as starter.
“I just think he’s focused right now, ” said Golden. “He’s done a good job all camp. He’s just got to be himself. Block out everything external and just run the show one play at a time. And just enjoy it. Enjoy the journey. That’s what he’s got to do.”
Blocking out the external and running the show one play at a time sound like ‘coachspeak’ but in reality are simple concepts that bridge the gap the difference between success and failure.
When you look at Harris’ performance in Columbus last season, it was an inability to do both. Rolling into the stadium all sweatervested-out, Tweeting before the game and a lack of focus, which helped cause four turnovers.
One play at a times means blocking out earlier mistakes made, old bad habits and disapproving fans – be it your’s or the enemy.
There have been too many occasions where Harris ran out of the tunnel with bravado and ran back in – at halftime – with head hung low and shattered confidence.
Developing a game plan to play to Harris’ strength isn’t impossible. Throw out the Mark Whipple playbook which called for multiple downfield hurls each half and instead balance a solid ground game with short passes to receivers who can move the ball.
Build Harris’ confidence drive-by-drive and it becomes that much easier for him to block out the external, focusing on one play at a time.
Another comment regarding the player formerly referred to as “J12″, Harris made a point of apologizing to fans, the university and president Donna Shalala for his involvement in the Nevin Shapiro scandal. It was Harris’ first interview since being named starter and he promptly cleared the elephant from the room.
“First of all, I’ve got to make sure I apologize to the University, president Shalala, starting with her first, for everything that happened, everything she had to go through during this time,” Harris said. “And then the fans, I want to apologize for something that happened our freshman year. We were all young, but still there’s no excuse for what happened.”
On one hand, yet another athlete apology in a sport world full of mea culpas. On the other, a much-needed step forward for a senior quarterback looking to become a leader and to put the pat behind him.
Eleven games (or twelve or thirteen, depending how the regular season goes) for Harris to write his legacy at Miami. Does he go out a ‘never was’ or a ‘late bloomer’? There’s still a ton of time left to play the role of hero in 2011.
One last Harris-related comment; the word “humility” entering the equation. Brash at times in the past – whether it was shaving ‘U SWAG’ into his hair or rocking Oakland Raiders overalls, Harris played the role of jokester his first several years at Miami.
You can cut it up all day long if and when you’re winning, but when you’re a an interception machine and your squad has gone 11-7 with you at the helm since your last truly impressive win (Oklahoma, 2009), not too many folks are going to be laughing with you.
Harris was humbled by being demoted to scout team quarterback Maryland week – holiday weekend that saw him bidding adieu to his teammates Sunday afternoon, seeing off the team bus, and then watching the loss to the Terrapins at home alone on Labor Day night.
Harris’ next move was to be the first person in the film room on Tuesday morning.
“I was here at 7am,” said Harris. “I watched the film and graded it. I just wanted to see what happened, to see what could’ve got done better and what we could’ve done better and how could we change this so it won’t happen again.”
The road to maturity is a long and arduous one. Harris has made his share of mistakes, but is proving that mentally and physically he’s doing what is currently in control regarding righting the ship. Re-winning over coaches and players. Owning up to mistakes. Putting in the effort on the field and in the film room. Working to prove himself.
There aren’t too many chances at redemption in life, but getting another crack at a big time opponent who you choked against the previous year? It’s the type of opportunity that winners live for.
Beating Ohio State in his first start of the season – in a turnover-reduced effort, no less – would be another enormous step in the right direction towards getting back to J12 status.

Hurricanes’ ‘backbone’ needed adjustment prior to showdown with Buckeyes (MANNY NAVARRO) 09/14/2011 21:51

Brandon Washington didn’t mince his words on Media Day when asked what role the Hurricanes offensive line should play this season.

“No doubt in my mind,” Washington said before pausing, “we’re the backbone of the team.

“We’re the backbone because no matter what play [offensive coordinator Jedd] Fisch calls, he knows we’re going to execute it. If he needs a hole, we’ll open it. If we need to give [quarterback] Jacory [Harris] time for the ball to get completed, we’ll do that. It’s on us. Period.”

UM’s “backbone” hardly looked sturdy in the team’s season-opening loss at Maryland. Two sacks, too many penalties (three false starts, one holding, one illegal block, one illegal formation) and not enough of a consistent push were reasons coach Al Golden called the play of his offensive line substandard in the opener and has challenged them in the days since.

Saturday’s challenge at Sun Life Stadium — No. 17 Ohio State (2-0) — won’t be any easier. The Buckeyes’ Silver Bullet Defense has allowed the fewest points in the nation among Football Bowl Subdivision schools since 2005, ranking sixth or better in scoring defense each season. Last season, it was fourth in total defense, third in rushing defense and eighth in passing defense and held 63 opponents to 21 or fewer points since the start of the 2005 season.

UM scored 24 points last season in its loss in Columbus, but two touchdowns came on special teams — a 79-yard punt return by Travis Benjamin and an 88-yard kickoff return by Lamar Miller. Quarterback Jacory Harris completed 22 of his 39 attempts for 232 yards, but was sacked twice and threw four interceptions. UM ran for 120 yards on 28 carries (96 from Damien Berry), but was forced to rely on Harris to try and lead the team back with his arm. UM didn’t get into the end zone on offense until the fourth quarter, when Ohio State was already up 36-17.

To avoid a repeat, UM’s offensive line could make things a little easier by doing what few teams have been able to do against the Buckeyes — impose its will up front and allow Smash and Dash, Miller and junior Mike James, to pound away on the ground.

“I thought we prepared as hard as hell and did a lot of great things against Maryland. We just got to make some more plays and eliminate the turnovers and penalties,” UM offensive line coach Art Kehoe said.

“You look at the numbers, we had 28 passes and 40 runs and were at 4.3 yards a carry. But for me, we had too many runs that were no gainers or went for loss of yardage. Not a lot of them, but enough to bother you. If we were a little more consistent in the running game maybe we could have broke it out and won the game. We just didn’t do it.”

Guards Brandon Linder and Harland Gunn said two keys big for UM’s offense Saturday will be slowing down —defensive tackle John Simon (6-2, 270) and 6-3, 255-pound senior defensive end Nathan Williams, who are among just returning starters from a year ago for the Buckeyes defense. Williams had his team’s first interception last year against Harris. Simon had a big sack on second down and eight tackles in the second quarter when the score was tied at 10.

“They’re both war daddies. They both go after the ball and are six-second competitors,” Linder said.

Said Gunn: “I feel like this is a big game for the whole team in general. But if you want to say it’s a statement game for the offensive line, sure. With how good they are up front, we have to bring our A game.”

Gunn, center Tyler Horn, sixth-year senior Joel Figueroa and Washington all started against Ohio State last season. This time though, they could be in different spots. Washington, an All-Atlantic Coast Conference first-team selection at guard last season, began the season at right tackle, but practiced at left tackle Wednesday. Figueroa, who started the opener at left tackle, was backing up redshirt freshman Jonathan Feliciano over at right tackle Wednesday. Golden said the team was just working on different combinations “like we always do,” but added coaches will sit down and decide Thursday who will start where.

“I thought [Washington] did fairly good [in his first start at tackle],” Kehoe said. “There were a couple [of] things in protection where we could have decked things differently, correctly and didn’t and it hurt us. But other than that, I thought he played good and gave us good protection most of the time. But that’s the thing we’re talking about. Most of the time isn’t good enough. It has to be perfect when you’re playing somebody like Ohio State. All things considered we have to play better than we did against Maryland.”

All that jazz about Jacory is cool, but bottomline this is high level ball and he needs to perform as expected of him. I feel like he still has a grown out high school kid mystique to him:hmm:, like the kid hit his ceiling already

I fully hope Jedd Fisher runs the ball a ton this next game and Lamar/Mike do their thing, make it alot easier on the passing game

actually jacory is nowhere near his ceiling and the sad part is the previous coaching staff was gonna have him starting no matter what he did. People i kno close to the program said this offseason jacory was actually choosing to watch film and work at his craft instead of partying and being the lazy bum they grew to kno. He even did a peyton manning camp....time will tell and show if this all is true tho

Nah I feel you, hes got the size and talent. Hes got a good feel to the game too, its just come game time, he does stupid sh*t that makes him seem like a highschool allstar compared to a bigtime qb. Idk, that wisconsin game was the closer for me (3 picks in 8 passes) and we havent seen him play since so hopefully he's got it down

Notre Dame but i get what your saying and i really dont count that game in my history books because the team was in complete disaray. Them n*ggas aint give 2 fu*ks about that game and it showed but that performance was one of complete and utter trash. I believe he'll end his career on a good note atleast im hoping so and im also liking how we going back to our old school offense of now gunning for the big play but gettin the ball to the athletes and letting them do they thing. Ask Ken Dorsey how that worked for him

I fully hope Jedd Fisher runs the ball a ton this next game and Lamar/Mike do their thing, make it alot easier on the passing game
nah i feel his ceiling is nowhere near... there was just a bad gameplan around his skillset and also his sense of entitlement--not watching film and studying the game like he should've, instead out partying and what not. Didn't help that his high school year he was recognized all over South Florida by anyone--when people heard about the West dominating the area and the country, they knew about Jacory Harris instantly. The fact that he got so much sh*t for his performances this last couple of year can only help him become a better player and actually fix his legacy here. If at this point he goes 11-1 or 12-0 he'll be praised alongside some of the greats that played here.

Fisch is going to run that ball this game believe that. OSU's DL is kinda depleted right now and Toledo was driving that ball through the air and on the ground on them. I'm sure he can only wait what Smash and Dash are going to do.

I feel like this west coast system is gonna flourish Jacory's skillset. He's a very accurate short throw passer. 5 or 10 dink and dunks can go for 40 yds with the athletes we have at WR and RB. Besides, there's nothing that annoys and tires a defense more than an offense driving down the field with high %age throws for first downs and runs that go for 4 yds a pop.

The problem with Jacory and our offense in general last year is that we were throwing the ball 30 to 40 times a game. Thats ridiculous, especially considering a majority of our plays were down the field plays, you will rarely ever win games like that. Giving Jacory options on multiple levels of the defense and giving him the control to change the offensive play to fit with his read at the LOS should all fit into Jacory's strength.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- There might not be a player on the UM defense who is happier to see Marcus Forston return than fellow defensive tackle Micanor Regis.

That's because now that Forston's back the double teams and combo blocks that Regis saw at Maryland will ease up.

With Forston next to Regis, offensive lines have to account for both of UM's veteran defensive tackles.

"Now there is two impact players that are next to each other and that takes the pressure off of both of us," Regis said. "They are going to have to decide whether they want to double him or leave him one on one and the same with me."

With Miami missing three defensive linemen who would normally start at Maryland, the Terps offensive line made it a point to double team Regis most of the games. Regis estimates it was the most double teams he saw in one game during his UM career.

"It was a lot of double teams," Regis said. "You could tell they weren't worried too much about the freshmen defensive linemen since they are so young and inexperienced. The freshmen still did a great job and stepped up, but it was their first game."

The UM defensive line will also receive a boost with the return of Adewale Ojomo, who gives the defense more experience at defensive end. Regis recognizes that Ojomo's play will also have an effect on Regis and could help him be more productive.

"A lot of times, offensive lines will double both me and Marcus and that will give the guys on the outside a chance to work one-on-one with single blocks," Regis said. "I think we will see a lot more pressure because now the quarterback might need to step up in the pocket to avoid the edge rush and me and Marcus will be there to make a play."

Playing alongside Regis for most of the Maryland game was junior college defensive tackle Darius Smith. After watching film coming off of Maryland, Regis is pleased with the way Smith played in his first start for Miami.

"He just stepped on campus three or four months ago, so the way he came in and started was great," Regis said. "He played well and took a lot of reps and played hard. He stepped up and he took charge of the situation."

One area that Forston wants the defensive line to improve on going into Ohio State is finishing on sack opportunities. Miami didn't get a sack on Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien, but Forston says that wasn't because UM didn't have their chances.

"I was just mad because we didn't get the job done," Regis said. "We had a lot of opportunities to get sacks, but we didn't take advantage of them."

Last year at Ohio State it was Regis who recorded the only sack on elusive quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Regis also finished the game with two tackles.

"It was one of my better games I think, but I don't really care about the performance if we lose," Regis said. "I just tried to do all of my a.ssignments and I was able to come up with a sack."

Regis knows the Ohio State offensive line presents one of the biggest challenges he will face all year. Through their first two games, the Buckeyes have not surrendered a sack and have led the way for 354 rushing yards.

"They are always big," Regis said. "Those guys up north are big for some reason. It is going to be a challenge for us in the second game of the season. It is going to be a dog f!ght. After the Maryland game we want to show we have a good defense, so we are going to go out and play hard."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – What is one way to make sure a player gets a first-team practice jersey?

Take his back-up jersey.

And that’s exactly what happened with wide receiver Tommy Streeter.

Streeter performed admirably in two scrimmages in fall camp and was awarded a first-team orange jersey. However, he declined.

But when he went to practice on Wednesday, there was a different strategy. When Streeter arrived at his locker, he noticed his white number 8 jersey. After stopping by the trainer’s room, he came back and it was gone.

Instead, it had been replaced with an orange number 8 with his shoulder pads. Streeter laughed at the slick maneuver and is taking it in stride.

“The orange jersey is one step closer to where I want to be, but at the same time I know that I have to continue to work hard to maintain that,” Streeter said. “I don’t take it for granted. The orange jersey is a challenge, the way I see it.”

Following his scrimmage performances last month, it wasn’t that he didn’t appreciate the gesture or even welcome the acknowledgement, he just wanted to stay focused and maintain his drive of playing with something to prove.

“That white jersey, you’ve got to get it dirty and make it turn orange,” Streeter said. “It’s just something that kept motivating me because I knew what type of player I am and I feel like I perform best when I have a chip on my shoulder.”

Streeter, a former top recruit with loads of athletic ability, is still working towards making a consistent impact on the team.

His four-reception, 55-yard performance against Maryland was a step in the right direction as the junior set career-highs in both.

“I felt good to be out there getting reps and an opportunity to make plays,” Streeter said. “I’m pretty sure everybody that comes to the University of Miami wants the opportunity to help the team. I’m just thankful to get an opportunity and that the coaches believed in me.”

Streeter drew some criticism for a route he ran on a fourth down pass intended for him that was intercepted and returned it for a score late in the game that sealed the victory for the Terrapins.

Streeter has vowed to move on past the play, but still use it as a learning experience.

“You kind of forget about it and don’t let those things linger and take it into the next game, but at the same time use that as an experience and take mental notes of things you could have done so that situation doesn’t take place again,” Streeter said.

As far as the team’s preparation since the Maryland game, Streeter has been pleased.

“I feel practices have been gravy,” he said. “Guys are back that are intrical parts of our offense and defense, guys who are leaders who bring that leadership to the practice field. I find that as a blessing, everybody is happy those guys are back and we’re ready to execute what we’ve been practice.”

Personally, Streeter is looking for a big game to build on his first output.

“I feel I have a chip on my shoulder week in and week out, just to challenge myself to a perfect game—execute every play, catch every pass, and bring out everything that God has blessed me with,” he said.

As gameday approaches, he’s focusing in on what he wants the team and himself to accomplish.

“I take the mental approach of playing within the game and not letting the atmosphere take over how I do things and executing the way I was in practice. And just going out there and having fun with my teammates, we got a lot of guys back, and being at home game and feeding of the crowd, bringing back one for Canes nation.”
