Randy Phillips figured he'd be playing safety at some point in his Miami career.

He was always oversized for a cornerback.

So when he was called upon to make the move from cornerback two games ago, he did it seamlessly.

"It's been great," Phillips said. "I prepared myself for it, knew the whole defense. So whenever that situation came I was going to be ready for it. When it came I knew the whole defense so I got to play early."

He says he played as many snaps as Kenny Phillips or Willie Cooper against Texas A&M.

And he was an a.sset in the big win.

"A win like that will boost our confidence, put the team where we need to be," Phillips said. "But we aren't there yet. There are things we didn't accomplish. We're going to keep getting better."

Phillips says he isn't surprised that, even after the win over the top 20 team, that the Canes remain unranked.

"What other people think about us, we don't really care," Phillips said. "That's going to handle itself. By the time we go to Florida State we should be 6-1, should be rolling. That's what we really are focusing on, just taking care of each week. Whatever they rate us, they rate us. If they don't (rank us), eventually they will."

Here's what else Phillips was saying:

Q: What kind of motivation is last year's close game at Duke?

Phillips: We had a lot of players out (due to suspension). I didn't play that game. They come down here, we're going to go out and execute. Whatever the score ends up it is. If it's close, we'll take the win. If it's a blowout we'll still take it.

Q: Do the guys on the team like day or night games?

Phillips: We're all going to prefer in our minds a night game, but it's best for the team at day time at 12 because teams coming from the north are not used to the heat and this is what we practice in every day. We're going to be running around. They're going to be cramping up, getting dehydrated, and we'll just roll.

Q: How hard was it to watch the Duke game at home last year?

Phillips: I wasn't even watching the game. I don't think it was on cable, and I was back in Belle Glade not even watching. Then it flashed across ESPN the last couple of plays and I was like, `Wow.' Then I saw Coop intercept the ball and I was relieved. We had a lot of players out in the secondary, and Coop handled his business, did great for the team.

Q: How has Cooper matured?

Phillips: He's always been mature. Coop is one of the players that is going to work hard, give everything he has. Right now he's doing a great job at safety, him and Kenny (Phillips). When I moved to safety it made them better because I'm challenging them (for playing time).

Q: Coach Randy Shannon said he gets calls from you guys late at night.

Phillips: With coach Shannon being through a lot of things growing up, he's been in each players' shoes in some kind of way. We can relate to him like a head coach and brothers. Things we can't talk about with other family members or coaches we can talk about with coach Shannon because he's got some kind of experience in that department. It's great having a head coach like that, that's open.

Q: How important are these next few games?

Phillips: Coach Shannon, one of his pet peeves is when we play teams like Duke or North Carolina, those are the teams that sneak up and get you because people take them light. Players get in the mindset, `Oh, we're going to coast this week because we have Duke or North Carolina.' But not this year. We're going to work harder than ever. We're going to work on some things that need to be improved and then go out and execute.

College Park (GA) Banneker High School DB Darrell Simmons says he's fielding weekly phone calls from Cane offensive coordinator Patrick Nix, who recruits his area.

"I talked to him last week and we set up an official visit for the Georgia Tech game," Simmons said. "Coach Nix just tells me that they would love me to be down there to play in their defense, that he loves the way I play."

The Canes are in good shape right now with Simmons.

"Miami's leading right now," he says. "Alabama is No. 2 and Tennessee is No. 3."

He says Alabama is not trailing the Canes by much.

"When I went down for Alabama's Junior Day I liked everything about them," said Simmons. who says he will also take an official visit to Florida. "I would love to be part of something like that."

Of Miami he says, "It's just a school that I know has a winning tradition, academics, everything, sends players to the NFL. I've loved them since I was a little boy."

Simmons watched the UM-Texas A&M game, and says "That kind of game helps a lot for a recruit. It's good to know that Miami's getting back to the way they were. They fell down for the Oklahoma game, but you could see the potential."


Simmons says he wants to have a final decision in place by the end of October, since he plays to graduate early and enroll in college in January.

So far this season Simmons has 25 tackles and five sacks for his 2-1 team. He also has 15 receptions on offense, one for a touchdown.

CARLOS ARMOUR Q&A

Q: What are your thoughts on Duke?

Armour: My thoughts abut this matchup is we had them a year ago. They're a team that plays hard, plays to the final whistle. We have to go in expecting them to play hard and give us good opposition. We can't take any opponent lightly.

Q: Talk about the fallout from the Texas A&M win.

Armour: It was good for both sides of the ball. It showed guys trust in what the program is trying to do. It put us in a good position to show that we can get it done.

Q: You were suspended for last year's game. When did you see Willie Cooper's interception?

Armour: I saw it on TV. Like everyone saw, it was a great play. He read his key, was in position to make a play. And we came out victorious for it. Coop's a smart guy, has great talent. He's mentally sharp, is one of the leaders of this team. He's a guy that's not very verbal, but he leads through actions and motivates guys through action.

Q: Miami's not ranked.

Armour: We're not worrying about ranking. It doesn't matter till week 6 or 7. Right now we're just correcting mistakes from game to game.

Q: What do you think about the play of all the freshmen?

Armour: It shows a lot of maturity with the guys coming out of high school this year. Guys are hungry and they're still maturing through the process. They're making plays, flying around.

Q: If you lost to Duke, what would that have been like for the program – if Willie doesn't make that play?

Armour: I can't even answer that.

Q: You're contributing now. What does that mean to you?

Armour: It means a lot – I came in with high expectations to contribute. Injuries have been my setback. I'm just going to do my role and contribute to the team in any way I can.

Q: Was there any sense of satisfaction on the deflection that was intercepted?

Armour: Yeah. It overwhelmed me because I don't want to let the other 10 guys on the field down. I want to do my part. That's what satisfied me the most, that I didn't let them down. That play gave us an opportunity to get the offense back on the field. The whole secondary plays with the same mentality – don't let the next guy down.

CHAVEZ GRANT Q&A

Q: How fired up are you guys to get conference play cracking now?

Grant: We've been waiting on it. Now we're going to start our streak toward winning the ACC. It's our first conference game. We're going to prepare like it's any other game, but we know it's more important than any other game. We're still going to play our hardest, will prepare the same and will go out there and win.

Q: How hard is it not to get overconfident against Duke?

Grant: It's not that hard once we think about last year. Last year they played us close. We know they're a tough football team, will play the whole four quarters. It's not that hard because we know if we take them lightly they might have a chance to come out and win the game.

Q: Is there any player backlash with Miami not in the top 25?

Grant: No, not really. I don't see many guys talking about it. I think maybe we just have to prove ourselves a little more. We're going to go out and play and show we should be ranked.

Q: How does it affect the defense when the offense does well?

Grant: It gives us more confidence. It fires us up, gets us excited to go out and just dominate because we see them dominating. We feel to make it a complete game we have to do the same thing. They give us energy and we give them energy.

Q: Coach Randy Shannon called some direct snaps last game.

Grant: Everyone likes to see exciting plays. We have good players, have exciting running backs and receivers. When those direct snaps come we look for something big to happen because we know those guys can make those plays. It's good to see something off the wall rather than a traditional offense.

Q: Was the Texas A&M win what this team needed heading into the ACC?

Grant: I think so. Winning against any team shows we're a good team. But with them being ranked we felt we had to dominate them. That's what we did. At the end of the game we kind of let up a little bit. We're going to work on finishing the game, because Duke will play the whole game. We're going to practice every week like we have a big game to play.

Q: Do you like having an animated coach like Randy Shannon on the sideline?

Grant: Yes. It gives you more energy, more confidence. You can play loose a little bit, have some fun. You see him running around, having fun with the guys, it just feels better.

Q: Willie Cooper made the big play last year at the end of the Duke game.

Grant: He came up big for us. We always talk about guys preparing like they're going to start. That was his first time starting, playing that many plays. He showed what it means to just keep practicing like you're a first-teamer.

Man, did you guys hear about Willie Williams? I was just watching ESPN and they said he got pulled over and had marijuana and he's been dismissed from school. Thought that was rather interesting.

By Jason Riley and Brian Bennett
The Courier-Journal




University of Louisville’s linebacker Willie A. Williams has been dismissed from the Cardinal football team after being arrested last night on charges of possession of marijuana, felony tampering with physical evidence and driving without a license.

“I’m very disappointed in Willie,” Athletic Director Tom Jurich said. “I was confident that he had turned the corner in his life and was ready to be a valuable contributor to society and our football program. We wish Willie the best and hope that he can learn from his mistakes and move forward in his life.”

Williams, 22, is the former star linebacker recruit who was arrested 11 times before enrolling at Miami in 2004.

He played in three games for the Cardinals after transferring from West Los Angeles Community College.

About 9:40 p.m. yesterday, a police cruiser pulled behind Williams on West Broadway and attempted to pull him over, according to a police report. Williams failed to pull over for several blocks until he stopped at Second and Broadway, where an officer found him chewing on marijuana, according to the report.

Police told Williams to spit out the marijuana and found additional marijuana in Williams’ glove compartment.

Louisville Metro Police say two other people were in the vehicle with Williams. Police say they are witnesses and declined to name them.

Williams was arrested but later released on his own recognizance. He will be arraigned Monday in Jefferson District Court.

Tampering with physical evidence is a felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years. The other two charges are misdemeanors.

The Rock solidly behind UM with $1M gift

The University of Miami has a new name to its football locker room.

Actor, wrestler and former Miami Hurricane defensive lineman Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Dany Garcia Johnson donated $1 million to the University of Miami Tuesday morning as part of the ongoing Football Facilities Renovation Fund. In recognition of the gift, the locker room will be named the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Locker Room.

"We are excited to continue this legacy of excellence by making a contribution that will propel our student-athletes to greater achievement, whether on the field, in the board room or on the silver screen," Johnson said of the gift in a statement released by the university.


shout out to the Rock, he's always been proud to be a cane
