Miami loses quarterback in loss to UNC

Miami quarterback Stephen Morris has been overshadowed by other signal callers such as Geno Smith in recent weeks despite playing really good football. Against North Carolina today, however, he was having a sub-par performance, tossing a pair of interceptions. Unfortunately for him, Morris didn’t have a chance to end the day on a high note.

Morris went down with a left ankle injury about midway through the fourth quarter and did not return to the game. No official diagnosis has been given for the injury. He had thrown for 155 yards and completed less than 50 percent of his attempts.

Memphis transfer Ryan Williams finished the game, which UNC won 18-14, throwing for 80 yards.

The loss is Miami’s first ACC defeat of the season. North Carolina moves to 2-1 in the ACC Coastal.

    First ACC road win for Larry Fedora and the spread offense. Hopefully, it’s the first of many.

    Now if we can just figure out why our wide receivers and tight ends get more holding calls than the offensive line….

    Miami just sucks an ass. Can’t wait till the NCAA hammers these clowns back to the stone ages.

    35long: My two favorite teams are USC and whoever is battling the NCAA. You couldn’t find a more heavy-handed, inconsistent administration outside Washington, DC. Lots of teams have issues trying to stay on the right side of the rules, but the NCAA never fails to make mountains out of molehills or the other way ’round.

    I didn’t realize Miami HAD a quarterback.

    “35long: My two favorite teams are USC and whoever is battling the NCAA.”

    While there are many inconsistencies in being regulated by an autonomous body, those who are always whining the loudest are always those who are breaking the most rules.


    UM has an incredibly long list of players who were just flat ignoring NCAA rules. To justify it by saying “everybody does it” is just plain ignorant.

    While contending program’s player’s were busy training, UM players were hanging out at a scumbags house waiting for a ride to the strip club, and that is not an exaggeration. They are the laziest most entitled bunch of losers to ever suit up for that horribly eroded football “program.”

    And it is infinitely entertaining that while they were flat ignoring every conduct regulation imaginable, it did nothing to entice what they used to covet, low character high skill players to come to Duh U and actually win something.

    The party line is that Randy hated Shapiro and told players to stay away from him. And nothing more glaringly says that Randy knew what the hell was going on. Or did he steer them away because Shapiro was short or something like that?

    The UM program continues it’s downward spiral. At the very top there is nothing to suggest they give a crap about competing. Hell, they can’t even get top coaches to speak to them. They are in a seemingly permanent pattern of hiring unproven coaches. Golden by the way, is all smoke and mirrors, but that is quickly showing itself on the field.

    UM’s laughable football budget results in laughable recruiting efforts. And that just doesn’t cut it in todays college football landscape. It may have worked when they just scooped up all the elite Florida talent. Now? Please!

    The two most important factors in winning today are coaching staffs and the recruiting that they produce. UM is an F’ing joke in both of those areas and that isn’t changing.

    So here they sit, beaten, injured, irrelevant. They have the 117th ranked defense. Their fall from elite to doormat has easily been the most precipitous in the last decade. This isn’t a down time, or ESPN hate, or the refs hatin’ on Duh U, or bad luck. This is the expected happenings within a program that went from a win at all cost approach to a program that doesn’t care if it competes in anything ever again. A program whose bare bones model is a joke. All that stupid “swag” shit and bravado from these forgotten idiots makes this all the more enjoyable. Credit these morons a little though, they have generally stopped saying, “FIVE TIME NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!” Maybe they have started to realize that it has a very empty feeling to it when you are getting used as a floor mop. It just punctuates how bad you are.

    As if it could get ANY WORSE, the NCAA will soon put a 30 foot stalagmite right into the center of their fading weak heart. It couldn’t happen to a bunch of more lawless arrogant bunch of has-beens . Of course they discredit all the allegations, just like you are doing manchestermiracle. UM good, NCAA bad. Very Sanduskyesque. Nevermind that there is sworn testimony from multiple individuals as well as a mountain of records that corroborate the allegations. Deny deny deny, all the way until the bullet passes through the backside of them and lodges in the firing squad pole that they are tied to.

    (ATTENTION CANE MORONS: I will kick off the torrent of dislikes by disliking my own comment. Please dislike now and hopefully we can set a dislike record. I will set the over/under at 50 dislikes. This will let me know that all of you sorry losers read my comments……Aaaaaand GO!)
