You can compare Randy Shannon and Barrack Hussein Obama. Both are going suck, but you can't criticize because you would be called a racist. Congrats Huricoons fans, you have at least two more seasons of Randy Hussein Shannon. Miami sucks..... I'll laugh until next season.

Based on sources within the UM Athletic Department we can expect to see two major changes as they releate to the UM Football Team.
One, Pat Nix will either be demoted to QB Coach or he will be fired. Shannon does not feel comfortable firing Nix, but is getting too
much pressure from key outside sources to make the change. Alumni, to include myself will put up the cash to get a proven OC.
Also expect to see Robert Marve transfer . Robert feels loyalty to his teammates, but is under the gun from his father who has told him that sharing the limelight will not get him to the NFL. Expect to see him playing for LSU in 2010. One last note--why can't Randy Shannon show emotion? OK so he came from a tough background, so did many of us. This guy is cold and shows no emotion on the sidelines--he could have learned a thing or two from some of UM's better coaches.

I don't watch many baby ball games. This game shows why. It was entertaining though.

My thoughts go out to those high school recruits watching this game on TV. Seeing a performance like that, who would want to play for that coaching staff at duh U.

The rushing defense was defenseless allowing over 225 yards rushing, there was no pass rush and the coverage was not that good either.

The offense was no better. With a QB throwing hopeless deep passes that should have been picked off 3 or 4 times. I'm not blaming him he doesn't call the plays. They seemed to have a good running attack in the second half and didn't use it enough.

Then when the game is on the line and only 1 timeout left they go into a shell. They ran only about 6 plays in 3 minutes and gained only 1 first down. Man if you're going to lose a game at least go out swinging.

I like Shannon but it's time to go out and find someone better. Turner Gill would be a good choice and a great fit down here.

seriously, everyone should see that he focuses on the wrong type of sh*t when he tells the press upon his hiring that he's gonna turn players into gentlemen that'll "hold open doors for the young ladies." Micromanagement BS. I like the canes but hope they get smacked next year and hire a coach with balls.

everyone forgets that Shannon only coached at UM for 1 season as a 'linebacker' coach before he was the defensive coordinator for the 2001 team. All true Miami fans will remember that after the 2000 season the residual effects of Butch's work led to Miami 2001 when they were able to destroy teams, regardless of who was coaching. Like Coker, Shannon was basking in the glory of Butch's success for the Championship. AFTER Butch's influence wore off, you all may remember that the defense softened up. Miami 's defense was no where near as dominant AFTER Shannon took over as defensive coordinator. He is a joke and Shaylala should have seen that.
