NATIONAL CHAMPIONS 1983 1987 1989 1991 2001

Administration PRESIDENT DONNA E. SHALALA Donna E. Shalala became the fifth President of the University of Miami on June 1, 2001. President Shalala is an accomplished scholar, teacher, and administrator whose career has been marked by a variety of leadership positions reflecting her interest in young people. She also is a big sports fan! While attending college, she played tennis and still plays a competitive game of doubles. She also enjoys golf, skiing, and other outdoor activities. First-rate facilities are a key part of achieving success on the field. Hurricanes football is embarking on an exciting new chapter at Dolphin Stadium. This state-of-the-art complex offers both players and fans with worldclass amenities that are unparalleled in college sports. “Hurricanes football games are as much about what’s taking place on the field as they are about what’s happening in the stands”, she said. “Our players and loyal supporters deserve the best, and Dolphin Stadium provides an enhanced game-day experience for everyone. Hurricanes fans are going to love it!” In 1987 President Shalala, a distinguished political scientist, became the first woman chancellor of a Big Ten university, the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She led what was then the nation’s largest public research university. In 1992 Business Week magazine named her one of the top five managers in higher education, and in 2005 was named one of “America’s Best Leaders” by U.S. News & World Report and the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. President Shalala’s success at Wisconsin was reflected in athletics as well. She hired a new football coach, recruiting Barry Alvarez from Notre Dame. Four years later, Wisconsin won the Big Ten football championship and represented its conference in the Rose Bowl for the first time in 30 years. President Shalala served on the first Knight Commission, a committee to review college athletics, and has served on the board of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Foundation. In May 2008 she was selected as an Independent Director of the U.S. Soccer Federation.

As to her commitment to UM athletics, Shalala said, “College sports are a vital part of our students’ experience while at the University. They also help build community and instill a great sense of pride in our athletes and their accomplishments. The young men and women who play Hurricanes sports are devoted to their game both on a personal and team level, and it shows in their inspired performances time after time. Now it’s up to the fans to show their support and cheer them on to many more victories.” For a sports fan like President Shalala, there is no better place to call home than the University of Miami.

In 1993, she was named U.S. Secretary for Health and Human Services (HHS) and served for eight years, becoming the nation’s longest-serving HHS Secretary. In 2000 she led the official U.S. delegation to the Olympics in Sydney, Australia. At the end of her tenure as HHS Secretary, The Washington Post described her as “one of the most successful government managers of modern times.” In 2007, U.S. President George W. Bush called upon her healthcare expertise to co-chair the Commission on Care for Returning Wounded Warriors, to evaluate how wounded service members transition from active duty to civilian society. In June 2008, President Bush presented her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, at a ceremony in the White House. The medal recognizes exceptional meritorious service to individuals who have contributed to national security, world peace, or cultural endeavors. As president of the University of Miami, President Shalala presides over one of the most successful college athletic programs in the country. The Hurricanes football program has consistently ranked in the top of the polls. In 2001 the baseball team won its fourth College World Series and the football team won its fifth national championship. In 2003 the men and women’s basketball teams began playing in a new, on-campus facility, the BankUnited Center. Other Hurricanes sports, from tennis to track, have also earned national recognition. Major renovations are well underway at Mark Light Stadium at Alex Rodriguez Park, and a new basketball training and practice complex recently broke ground. The Black Coaches Association honored her with its Image of Excellence Award for 2007.

Administration DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS KIRBY HOCUTT Kirby Hocutt is in his first year as the Director of Athletics at the University of Miami. Introduced as UM’s new Director of Athletics on Feb. 8, 2008, Hocutt began his tenure as the university’s 11th Director of Athletics on June 1, 2008. Hocutt, 36, came to Miami after serving as the athletic director at Ohio University since 2005. Prior to that, he spent six years at the University of Oklahoma and served most recently as associate athletic director for external operations and sports administration. A former star linebacker at Kansas State, Hocutt has a total of 17 years experience in intercollegiate athletics, including five as a student-athlete. He replaces Paul Dee, who retired after serving as the Director of Athletics at UM for the past 16 years. “My family and I are extremely excited to be at the University of Miami and a part of the South Florida community,” said Hocutt. “To be associated with a world-class university known for comprehensive excellence is truly an amazing opportunity. I look forward to working for and with President Shalala, our student-athletes, coaches and staff as we focus on permanently establishing the Miami Hurricanes as the premier athletics program in the nation.” At Ohio, Hocutt significantly reorganized the athletic department’s annual giving program. His leadership led to an increase in fundraising by more than 75 percent, including the securing of the second-largest major gift in school athletics history. He also increased season ticket sales in football by 112 percent and in men’s basketball by 50 percent. He developed a comprehensive plan to improve the facilities for the football stadium and its press box, as well as the Convocation Center, which houses all administrative and coaches’ offices. In his three years at Ohio, the school won 11 team championships and four head coaches were recognized as conference Coaches of the Year. In 2006, the football team played in its first bowl game in 38 years. At Oklahoma, Hocutt was the primary administrator for football and the sport supervisor for baseball, men’s and women’s golf, as well as men’s and women’s tennis. His duties included supervision of the athletics development office, athletics ticket office, special events, stadium suite program, athletics endowment program, letter winners association and the department’s facility use and rental program. Hocutt led Oklahoma’s athletics fundraising to an all-time high in annual giving and capital campaigns. From 1998 to 2005, Oklahoma’s annual giving increased from $3.4 million to more than $17 million. That 400 percent increase in annual giving was one of the highest percentage increases in intercollegiate athletics history. Beginning in 1999, Hocutt served in a leadership position in the strategic planning for a $100 million capital campaign. The $120 million campaign was unique in that it focused on facility construction or improvements for each of Oklahoma’s 20 sports. Prior to joining the Oklahoma staff, Hocutt served as the assistant director of licensing at the NCAA. In that position, he worked with corporate partners and licensees to create new revenue producing initiatives to support and promote all 81 NCAA championships. He began his career in sports administration as the assistant director of marketing and promotions at Kansas State University. While at Kansas State, he implemented revenue-producing activities for the athletics department, including corporate partner sponsorships and ticket sales.

THOUGHTS ON KIRBY HOCUTT “Kirby Hocutt is a proven leader with the enthusiasm, thoughtfulness and commitment necessary to lead our quest to be the top program in the country,” -University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala “Our search, which included ADs and senior associates at some of the top programs in the country, led us to Kirby Hocutt, a rising star in intercollegiate athletics.” - Joe Natoli, Senior VP/Business and Finance, CFO and search committee chairman, University of Miami “Kirby has done much to take our department of athletics to a higher level, and we are very appreciative for all of the accomplishments we have seen in our department during his tenure. It’s very unfortunate that we cannot have his leadership in our department for a longer period of time. We understand, however, that is the risk we run when hiring good people.” —Roderick J. McDavis, President, Ohio University “All of Kirby’s friends at the University of Oklahoma send him warm congratulations. He did an outstanding job as associate director of athletics and we wish him well at the University of Miami every day that he is on the job, except when his teams play OU.” —David L. Boren, President, University of Oklahoma “Reflecting on my background as a native of South Florida, a former intern for the Hurricanes athletic department and a person who worked with the new athletics director, I can say unequivocally that Kirby Hocutt is a phenomenal hire for the University of Miami. His impeccable character, high energy and passion for excellence combined with his leadership skills create the perfect blend to advocate for student-athletes, coaches and the university in today’s world of intercollegiate athletics. I congratulate President Shalala, the search committee and all those involved in this selection. Kirby has wonderful respect amongst his peers and he will make the Hurricane Nation proud of the program he leads.” —Joe Castiglione, Director of Athletics, University of Oklahoma

“I have known Kirby dating back to the days when I coached him at Kansas State. He has always impressed me with his extraordinary work ethic and dedication. I saw a continuation of those traits during his time as an administrator here at Oklahoma. Kirby understands what it takes to be successful, is strong in his personal relationships and efficient in getting the job done. I am not surprised by his quick assent in our profession and am confident he will do well in Miami.” —Bob Stoops, Head Football, Coach University of Oklahoma

A former student-athlete at Kansas State, Hocutt was a four-year letterman as a linebacker while leading the Big 8 Conference in tackles and being named to the All-Big 8 Conference team during his junior season. In 1993, The Sporting News selected him as one of the top 20 underrated players in the nation. Hocutt also served as a team captain his senior season. Two of Hocutt’s coaches at Kansas State were Bob Stoops, head football coach at Oklahoma and Jim Leavitt, the head football coach at USF. Hocutt earned his bachelor’s degree from Kansas State in 1995 and his master’s of education degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2001. He and his wife Diane have two sons, 6-year-old Drew and 4-year-old Brooks.

“The great athletes are going to come to Miami. Are we going to be like some schools that just get them through and don’t help them make strides toward a degree? Or are we going to ensure that they graduate, get their diplomas and have the opportunities to accomplish something beyond sports? We have to excel not only on the playing field, but in the classroom.” Randy Shannon greets former UM defensive tackle Dwayne Johnson -- a.k.a. The Rock -- at commencement ceremonies in May 2007

“It was a such great experience. I saw 19-, 20-, 21-year-olds do various jobs and do it with perfection. You get amazed, because I'm coaching 19-, 20-, 21year-olds in football and it's the same type of thing. You want perfection. I'm happy to be an American. And I'm happy that those 19- and 20-year-olds are, what I call, helping run the country. Because without all of our soldiers’ protection, we wouldn't have protection." — Head Coach Randy Shannon on his trip to the Middle East in May of 2008 Randy Shannon was one of five college football coaches to participate in a seven-day Middle East tour during May of 2008. The tour was a joint effort of Morale Entertainment and Armed Forces Entertainment. Joining Coach Shannon on the trip were Mark Richt of Georgia, Tommy Tuberville from Auburn, Yale University's Jack Siedlecki and Charlie Weis of Notre Dame. The tour was a first-of-its-kind for NCAA football and for Armed Forces Entertainment.

HEAD

COACH

Randy Shannon When you think of college football over the last quarter century, you think of the Miami Hurricanes. And when you think of the Miami Hurricanes, you think of Randy Shannon. Shannon was named head football coach of the University of Miami on December 8, 2006. Shannon, 42, was the team's defensive coordinator the previous six seasons. He coached top 10 defenses in five of those six seasons. A native of Miami, a former Hurricanes player and graduate of the university, Shannon played on or was a coach for three of the school's five national championship teams. He played for the Hurricanes from 1985 to 1988 and had been an assistant coach for 13 seasons before being named the 20th head coach in school history. Shannon coached Miami to a 31-3 win over Marshall in his head coaching debut on Sept 1, 2007. The Hurricanes went on to finish 5-7 and 2-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Shannon’s Hurricanes showed promise for the future of the program. In 2008, he enters his second season as head coach. A young, experienced and talented Hurricane team is expected to take the field. Miami’s 2008 signing class ranked as the top class in the country by ESPN.com. On the field, UM returns 11 starters and 48 lettermen. But most importantly, Shannon’s 2007 team continued to uphold to UM’s academic success off the field. The UM football team achieved a NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) of 969, which was the

8th-highest rate in the country out of 119 Bowl-Subdivision football programs. Thirteen seniors on the 2008 squad will have already received their degrees before the start of the season. “Randy Shannon is Miami -- tough, disciplined, smart, caring, passionate, enthusiastic, and no-nonsense,” said University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala. “He has been preparing himself for a head coaching position his whole life and I am very happy that the opportunity came at the University of Miami, his alma mater.” In his six seasons as defensive coordinator, the Hurricanes had seven All-America players (and he tutored eight other All-Americans as a position coach). He coached 14 defensive players who were selected in the first round of the NFL draft in the last seven years. As a player, Shannon was a member of five teams that went to bowl games (including one as a redshirt freshman). He has coached in 11 bowl games. “This is my dream job. It always has been,” Shannon said. “This program is not at a standstill. The program is not on a downslide. We are on an upward movement. As a coach, you want a challenge. I want somebody to say that I can't do it. If I hear ‘I can't,’ I’m going to prove you wrong. Nobody can ever tell you that you cannot achieve what you want. That’s what I believe in. “I want to make sure everyone understands that we will get it done at the University of Miami,” Shannon continued. “We’re not a program that’s going to stand still. You never stay the same in life. You always go up and down. You try to get better every year, every day, every week, every second.” Shannon attended Miami’s Norland High School and earned All-State and honorable

mention All-American recognition from Street & Smith’s as a senior linebacker at Norland. He also lettered in basketball, averaging 19 points a game, and he competed in the triple jump on the track and field team.

An 11th-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, he became the first rookie to start at outside linebacker for Dallas since 1963. He was also a standout on special teams. Shannon played for the Cowboys for two seasons before going into coaching. He was a graduate assistant in 1991 when the Hurricanes won their fourth national championship. In 1992 he became a full-time assistant coach working with the defensive line, and from 1993-97 he coached the team's linebackers. He was a defensive assistant with the Miami Dolphins in 1998 and 1999 before assuming the role of linebackers coach in 2000. He returned to his alma mater in 2001 as defensive coordinator. That year, the Miami Hurricanes won their fifth national championship and Shannon became the first UM coach to be named the winner of the Frank Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation's top assistant coach. Shannon has produced defenses that rank among the best in the history of the program. Despite a 7-6 record in 2006, the defense ranked seventh in the country in total defense (allowing only 255.5 yards per game), fourth in rushing defense (a teamrecord 67.9 yards a game) and 13th in scoring defense (15.5). In 2005, Shannon's aggressive 4-3 scheme led the nation most of the season in nearly every category and finished No. 1 in pass defense (152.17 ypg) and pass efficiency (89.48 rating), fourth in total defense (270.08 ypg) and scoring defense (14.25 points), and 23rd in run defense (117.92). He was named Defensive Coordinator of the Year by Rivals.com. In 2004, Shannon's defense ranked ninth in the country in pass defense despite having three new starters in the secondary. The UM defenses in 2002 and 2003 led the nation in fewest passing yards allowed, and the 2003 unit was fourth nationally in pass efficiency defense (96.16 rating), while finishing second in the nation in total defense (257.5 ypg). The 2003 Hurricanes also ranked among the national leaders in scoring defense (fourth, 15.1 ppg). His 2002 unit led the nation in passing yards allowed (119.7 ypg) and in pass efficiency defense (83.91 rating), while finishing seventh in the nation in total defense (285.0 ypg), all of which was accomplished with an entirely new starting unit in the defensive secondary. In 2001, Miami led the nation in turnover margin by forcing a school-record 27 interceptions and 45 turnovers. Miami defenders allowed a national-best 9.4 points per game, led the nation in pass efficiency defense (75.60 rating), ranked second in pass defense (138.2 ypg) and was sixth in total defense (270.9 ypg). The 2001 Hurricanes allowed just 12 touchdowns (seven rushing, five passing) and scored seven touchdowns of their own. His defenses have been ranked in the top 10 in turnover margin twice and led the nation in 2001. It’s no wonder Shannon has been successful as a coach. As a linebacker during the late 1980s, he was a film room guru, studying hours and hours of tape to learn the offensive tendencies of the opponents he faced each Saturday on the football field. His commitment to being a student of the game often paid huge dividends, such as on Sept. 5, 1987, in the Orange Bowl, when he returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown in the Hurricanes’ 31-4 romp over the Florida Gators. But his studious approach to game preparation wasn’t limited solely to the gridiron. Shannon was a true student-athlete, graduating with a degree in liberal arts. “It was about more than just the X’s and O’s,” Shannon said. “I wanted to grow intellectually, and I knew that academics were a key to success.” Many of Shannon’s players have gone on to star in the NFL. But it is not the superstar success his players have achieved as professional athletes of which Shannon is most proud. “I’m excited for them because they’ve earned their college degrees,” he says. “Football is your life when you’re playing, but when it’s over and you sit down and realize that there are no more cheers from the crowds, you realize how special academics really are.” The University of Miami, Shannon says, “is not a football factory. We’re an academic institution that does a tremendous job in educating student-athletes and preparing them for life after sports.” Eight members of the 2006 Miami Hurricanes football team, for example, were named to the Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football Team, the highest in the league. Shannon is known for his quiet yet strong demeanor. He works with great intensity

Shannon brims with confidence that is supported by a lifetime of success. “We’re going to do a lot of great things here for the community, for the school, and for the football program,” he says. “We’re going to have accountability, discipline, and a lot of emotion to do the right things. Being at Miami, the expectations are always high. Players come to Miami because they know they will always have an opportunity to win the national championship. If you settle for less, you’re going to become less. We’re going to have a lot of fun. And we’re going to win.”

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT RANDY SHANNON: Coaches: “The No. 1 thing about Randy is that he keeps everything in perspective. He’s intelligent, dedicated and even-keeled. He does not have highs and lows. His background, where he came from, allows him to keep everything in perspective. I was ecstatic when I heard he’d be the head coach. He’ll be outstanding. He’s exactly what the University of Miami needs. He’s organized. He recruits well. He’s an outstanding coach. He’s a perfect fit.” - Jimmy Johnson, Hurricanes head coach 1984-88 “Randy understands the core of the University of Miami better than anybody else, and that’s why he’s the perfect fit for this job. The players can identify with him because when they talk to him, they’re talking to somebody who's been through it; somebody who's been through so much in his life.” - Dennis Erickson, Hurricanes head coach 1989-94

Players: “Randy was one of the smartest football players I have ever known. He understands the game and he understands players. He has an instinctive feel for all that is involved in being a winner. The program is in good hands, because the program is in his heart. He will teach his players what the Miami spirit is about. He understands that it is a privilege to play at Miami, and with that privilege comes a responsibility to uphold the success and pride of those who came before, those who are there now, and those who will follow.” - Michael Irvin, member of Pro Football Hall of Fame, collegiate national champion and Super Bowl champion “Randy was a coach on the field. He got the defensive players in line. I remember Randy as a linebacker during spring drills under Jimmy Johnson and I was a young freshman doing everything full speed, and he said, ‘Hey Gino, there’s a lot of time left. Make sure you pace yourself.’ He was always trying to teach the game. Not only is he a teacher, but he’s always trying to learn and improve himself.” - Gino Torretta, 1991 Heisman Trophy winner and national champion “Randy is very even-mannered. But he’s always been a smart, savvy person, and he brings those attributes to his position as head coach. I know the love he has for the team and the university. He has paid his dues and he was ready. I remember our playing days and guys would be down and Jimmy Johnson would be beating down on us and coach Wannstedt would be getting after us, and Randy would do something funny. He said it was to take his mind off the dog days of practice, but it did something for us, too. That’s how he’ll be as coach -- serious but he also likes to have fun.” - Russell Maryland, No. 1 overall NFL draft choice 1991

He received the Christopher Plumer Award for most inspirational player as a senior in 1988. He was described by his coaches as “a coach on the field.” Shannon concluded his career in 1988 when he ranked fourth on the team in tackles, sacks and tackles for loss while leading the team in passes broken up and forced fumbles.

and dedication. His pride in his alma mater is always paramount. “Once you’re a part of the University of Miami, you’ll always bleed orange and green. You never forget those experiences as a player or coach, because they’ll always be a part of your life,” Shannon says.

“The disciplined approach I saw in Randy as a player and as a coach will transition into a head coach. As a former offensive player, I want to see the offense be disciplined and have more big plays. With the coaches he has hired, there will be a focus on that. He’s a tactician and a strategist. He was an undersized linebacker and never the fastest player, but he always seemed to make the big tackle or the big fumble recovery. He had great instincts, and he’ll have that as a head coach.” - Steve Walsh, starting quarterback, 1987 national champions “He’ll be a great coach. He’s a great fit for the program. He grew up in the area. He went to Norland High School. He’s been here. He knows the tradition. I think he’s the perfect person for the job.” - Andre Johnson, Houston Texans Pro Bowl receiver and 2001 national champion “Randy will bring back that much-needed swagger. He’ll bring a defensive mentality to the offense. The entire team concept will be more aggressive. As a player, he was a student of the game. He was not the most physical player, but probably he was the most intelligent. Looking back at it, I could see how he would go into coaching, and be very successful at it.” - Bennie Blades, Hurricanes safety 1985-87, 1987 national champion and member of College Football Hall of Fame “Look at the person and you can tell what kind of coach you’ll get. His side of the ball always excelled. His players played like he was on the field with them. He didn’t tolerate players who didn’t play all out. Now that he’s the head man, he brings that to the table with the entire team. Both sides of the ball will play the way he wants them to play. He’s the kind of coach we need at Miami.” - Santana Moss, Washington Redskins Pro Bowl wide receiver “Coach Shannon is a father figure for everybody on the team. That’s how he was for me. He knows what he wants. He knows what the kids want. He was a player here, and he’s been through the system. He knows the tradition that needs to be upheld. Definitely he’s the man to get this program back to where it should be.” - Ed Reed, Baltimore Ravens safety and 2001 national champion “He is the best person for the job, no doubt. He is the one man who could come in here and run the program, and run it effectively. He’ll make the changes in order for us to compete for the national title. It doesn’t matter that he has never coached offense before. In order to know defense, you have to know offense. He knows what he is doing on both sides of the ball.” - Antrel Rolle, Arizona Cardinals cornerback and 2004 All-American "He’s one of those coaches who understands his players. He looks out for his players. He knows how to break down the game so players can understand it. He’s a smart coach. He’s been in the NFL as a player and a coach. And he’s won championships in college as a player and a coach. He knows what it takes to win.” - Willis McGahee, Baltimore Ravens running back and 2002 All-American

NFL Executives: “I’ve known Randy Shannon for a long time and know what a great person and coach of the game he is. I think he’s going to be very successful at the University of Miami. He has the football knowledge. He understands players. He is very much in tune with what it takes to put it all together to become a team and become a winner.” - Tim Ruskell, president of football operations, Seattle Seahawks “I was convinced in 2002, in the NFL’s salary cap era, that the only way to win was with the Tony Dungy style of defense, so I asked Jim Mora to make a change at defensive coordinator and bring in someone who believed in Tony Dungy’s defense. One of the people I asked him to think about was Randy Shannon. Jim didn’t want to do that, and not long after that, the architect himself (Dungy) became available and we hired him as head coach. That was a no-brainer. But I thought that highly of Randy at that time, and I still do.” - Bill Polian, general manager, Indianapolis Colts

Bill Young DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR Bill Young enters his first season as the defensive coordinator at the University of Miami.Young, 61, is a 39year coaching veteran, with 21 seasons as a defensive coordinator. He has been a defensive coordinator at Tulsa, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Southern California and most recently at Kansas, where the Jayhawks finished the 2007 season 12-1 with a victory in the Orange Bowl over Virginia Tech with a defense that ranked 12th in the nation. Young also had a one-year stint in the NFL. Under Young’s guidance, the 2007 Kansas defense ranked fourth nationally in scoring defense (16.3 points per game) and turnovers gained (35), eighth in run defense (94.8 yards per game) and ninth in pass efficiency defense (105.3). It featured All-American cornerback and NFL first-rounder Aqib Talib. Young was defensive coordinator at Kansas for six seasons under Mark Mangini. In 2006, Kansas finished third in the Big 12 and 28th in the nation in rushing defense (109.0 yards per game), as it held four opponents to under 70 yards of rushing and limited all opponents to a fourth-down conversion rate of less than 25 percent. In 2005, Young oversaw the development of a defense which finished the season as the top runstopping unit in the Big 12 and eighth in the NCAA. In 2004, the KU defense led the Big 12 with 27 takeaways, including a league-best 19 interceptions. The defense allowed an average of 117.6 rushing yards per game — the third-best single-season average in school history at the time and the lowest since 1961. The biggest improvement in the overall defense occurred on third downs, as the opposition converted just 29.9 percent of its chances — only two Big 12 teams in 2004 were more effective at forcing fourth down. Young was defensive line coach with the Detroit Lions in 2001. Prior to his stint in the NFL, he worked three seasons as defensive coordinator at Southern California under Paul Hackett. While at USC in 1999, his defense led the nation in total takeaways and topped the conference in rushing defense and turnover margin (third nationally). His USC defense in 1998 was No. 1 in the Pac-10 in total defense, pass efficiency defense (third nationally) and scoring defense. It was also ranked second in the country in forced turnovers.

In addition to his three years at USC, his stints as defensive coordinator came at Tulsa in 1983-84, Ohio State from 1988-95 and Oklahoma in 1996-97. Much of Young’s coaching career (1980-95) was spent assisting former Ohio State head coach John Cooper. Their association began in 1980 at Tulsa, where Young was hired as defensive line coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator three years later. He moved with Cooper to Arizona State, where he was the Sun Devils’ defensive line coach from 198587 before following Cooper in 1988 to Ohio State, where he led the Buckeyes’ defense for eight seasons before taking over the defense at Oklahoma, where he worked under John Blake.Young’s first two coaching assignments came at his alma mater, Oklahoma State, from 1976-78 and for one season as Iowa State’s defensive tackles coach in 1979. During his 27 years in college coaching, Young has helped elevate 31 players to the NFL, including seven players apiece during his stints at Ohio State, Arizona State and Tulsa, and five each while at Oklahoma State and Oklahoma. Among future NFL players he tutored are Dexter Manley (Oklahoma State), Dan Saleumua and Trace Armstrong (Arizona State), Alonzo Spellman, Dan Wilkinson and Mike Vrabel (Ohio State), Barron Tanner and Kelly Gregg (Oklahoma), David McMillan and Charlton Keith (Kansas). Prior to his college coaching career, Young spent six seasons on the prep level at two high schools in Oklahoma. He played outside linebacker and defensive end at Oklahoma State from 1965-67 and led the Cowboys in interceptions in 1965. He was an academic All-Big Eight selection as a senior in 1967 and earned his bachelor’s degree in education in the spring of 1968. He then went on to earn his master’s degree in secondary education at Central Oklahoma in 1971. He is married to Lawana Young.

Joe Pannunzio Joe Pannunzio is in his third season as the Hurricanes’ tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. In 2007, Pannunzio worked with a young group of tight ends which combined for five of Miami’s 16 touchdown receptions. In his first season, he tutored tight end Greg Olsen, who was selected by the Chicago Bears in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft. Pannunzio also did a fine job coaching UM’s special teams units. Both the punt return (27th) and kickoff return (55th) coverage units ranked in the top half of Division I-A in 2006. This year, Pannunzio has a challenge in all of his responsibilities. With Olsen gone, he is working with Chris Zellner, DajLeon Farr and Dedrick Epps at tight end. He has to find a new punter and placekicker to replace Brian Monroe and Jon Peattie, respectively. And he has a bevy of true freshmen to work with in finding a new star to return Miami’s kick return game to national prominence.

Pannunzio, 49, has coached for the last 27 years in college football, steadily rising the ranks from a star player at Southern Colorado to head coach. In his six years as head coach at Murray State, his teams finished 30-37 and won one Ohio Valley Conference title and advanced to the playoffs one time. Prior to becoming a head coach, Pannunzio spent five years working for Tommy Tuberville at Mississippi and Auburn. Before that, he spent four years under Jim Wacker at TCU and Minnesota. He also coached for seven years at Mesa (Colo.) College, where the teams appeared in the NAIA national championship game two times and led the nation in total offense and scoring one time. His two stints at Mesa wrapped around two years at Kansas, where he worked under Mike Gottfried.

Dear Prospective Student-Athlete: As a prospective student-athlete, you may have the athletic potential to play college football at the Division I-A level. If so, you probably will be exposed to an enormous amount of recruitment activities from universities across the country. Throughout the recruitment process, coaches will reference various NCAA rules and regulations. The rules are designed for various reasons. The most important of which are to ease the pressures on prospective student-athletes and to level the playing field so that all universities operate within the same guidelines. During the recruiting process you may have the following questions: • When and how often can I visit an institution’s campus? • When, where and how often can a coach telephone me? • How many times can a coach observe me in practice and/or competition? • What academic criteria must I meet to be eligible to play Division I-A college football? The answers to these questions and more can be obtained from the University of Miami Compliance Office or the NCAA by requesting the NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete. The guide may be provided to a prospective student-athlete at any time. The guide addresses issues related to Divisions I, II and III academic eligibility, financial aid, recruitment and more. To receive a copy of the guide call the NCAA Hotline at 1-800-638-3731 or request it from the University of Miami coach who is recruiting you. Please remember that since violations of NCAA rules during your recruitment could jeopardize your athletic eligibility, it is important for you and your parents to be informed and to ask questions throughout the recruiting process. Best of luck and GO HURRICANES! Sincerely,

David Reed Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Who is a Prospective Student-Athlete (Prospect)? You are a prospect if you have started classes for the ninth grade. Before the ninth grade, you may become a prospect if a university provides you (or your family or friends) any financial aid or other benefit that is not usually provided to prospective student-athletes. You are no longer a prospect if you have done any of the following: (1) Officially register and enroll in a minimum full-time program of studies and have attended classes in any four-year collegiate institution’s regular academic year (excluding summer); or (2) Participated in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term; or (3) Officially register and enrolled and attend classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment and receive institutional athletics aid. How do I know if I’m being recruited? A coach is recruiting you if they try to convince you directly, or through your family, to attend their school and participate in intercollegiate athletics. There are several ways to be recruited: (1) a coach may provide you with an official paid visit to view the campus, (2) a coach may arrange an in-person, off-campus meeting with you (or your family), or (3) a coach or staff member may call you (or your family) on more than one occasion for the purpose of recruitment. Coaches and authorized institutional staff members are the only individuals who may recruit you. Representatives of athletic interests (boosters) may not call, write or make in-person contact with you anywhere for the purpose of recruiting you to a university and participating in athletics. When can a coach contact me? Off Campus Contact In the sport of basketball, a coach can arrange a face-to-face meeting with you, off the University’s campus, beginning the first day of classes of your senior year. In all other sports, a coach can arrange a face-to-face meeting with you, off the University’s campus, beginning July 1 after your junior year.

Telephone Calls In all sports other than football and basketball, a coach may call a prospect one time per week after July 1 following the completion of the prospect’s junior year in high school. In the sport of football, a coach may initiate one telephone call to a prospect between April 15th and May 31st of the prospect’s junior year. Additional calls are not permitted prior to September 1st of the beginning of the prospect’s senior year in high school. In the sport of men’s basketball, coaches may make one telephone call per month from June 15 of the prospect’s sophomore year through July 31 of the junior year. Beginning August 1 of the senior year a coach may make two telephone calls per week. Only one call per week may be made to a two-year or four-year college prospect. In the sport of women’s basketball, coaches may make one telephone call per month during the months of April (on or after the Thursday after the conclusion of the NCAA Division I Final Four) and May of the prospect’s junior year in high school, one telephone call between June 1 and June 20 and one telephone call between June 21 and June 30 of the prospect’s junior year in high school. Three telephone calls to a prospect are permitted during the month of July, with no more than one call per week. In the following circumstances unlimited calls to a prospect are permitted: (1) during the five days immediately preceding an official visit to the University of Miami, (2) on the initial date for signing the National Letter of Intent and the two days following the signing date, and (3) on the day of a coach’s off-campus contact with a prospect For all sports, coaches may receive telephone calls placed by a prospect at the prospect’s expense at anytime, including before July 1 following the prospect’s junior year in high school.

What is a Contact? A contact is any face-to-face encounter between a prospect or the prospect’s parent(s) or legal guardian and an institutional staff member or athletic representative during which any dialogue occurs in excess of an exchange of a greeting. NOTE: At the Division I level, athletic representatives (boosters) may not contact you for the purpose of recruiting. What can a school offer me to attend their University? You (or your family) may not receive any benefit, inducement or arrangements such as cash, clothing, cars, gifts or loans to encourage you to sign a National Letter of Intent or to attend a NCAA school. A University may offer you a one-year scholarship that covers room and board, tuition and fees, and required course-related books, or any part of these. The institution can recommend that this aid is renewed each year, as is the general practice at the University of Miami but this renewal is not guaranteed. In addition, they can offer you quality academic and medical support, as well as the opportunity to compete for one of the nation’s top programs.

A Division I institution may provide a recruit with the following printed materials: •

General correspondence, including letters, U.S. Postal Service postcards and institutional note cards;

Game programs, which may not include posters, and one Student-Athlete Handbook;

NCAA educational information;

Pre-enrollment information subsequent to signing a National Letter of Intent with the university;

One athletic publication (e.g., media guide or recruiting brochure);

Official academic, admissions and student services publications published or videos produced by the institution and available to all students;

Schedule and business cards;

Questionnaires which may be provided prior to your junior year; and Camp brochures which may be provided prior to your junior year.

What can I do during this process? Enjoy your high school years and work hard both in the classroom and in your sport. At the beginning of your junior year you should sign up for the NCAA Clearinghouse. Your high school guidance office can provide you with the information to register.

THE SPRINT FOR HURRICANE ATHLETICS A Campaign for the Miami Hurricanes THE SPRINT FOR HURRICANE ATHLETICS HAS HIT FULL STRIDE. The Campaign is an ambitious endeavor which began in December of 2006 with a goal of raising $70 million for athletics in three years. The $75 million dollar goal includes donations to the Hurricane Club student-athlete scholarship fund, building and enhancing facilities and increasing our endowment. Additionally, a Football Facilities Renovation Fund used at Head Football Coach Shannon’s discretion was created to support a wide range of opportunities including updating technology, renovating coaches’ offices, team meeting rooms, and their locker room.

We are extremely excited about this project and the impact it is going to have on our athletic programs and the University as a whole. To support The Sprint for Hurricane Athletics call 1-800-GOCANES (option 6) or (305) 284-6699. Donate on line at www.hurricanesports.com

UM FOOTBALL

HURRICANE

TRADITION

Football Facilities The nation’s best student-athletes meet, practice and train in the Hecht Athletic Center. The Miami football complex features state-of-the-art meeting and planning rooms, including three large team meeting rooms and eight position group meeting rooms. These rooms are fully equipped with the latest video scouting technology, enabling Hurricane football players to prepare in the best setting available. The football practice fields are part of the Hecht Athletic Center. Miami players can walk directly from the study hall to the locker room to the practice field without leaving the confines of the building. The Greentree Practice Fields consist of three full length natural grass fields and are lighted to allow for evening practices. Greentree underwent a $2 million renovation in 1998. In 2007, the practice fields were selected College Football Field of the Year by SportsTurf Managers Association.

The University of Miami began The Sprint for Hurricane Athletics campaign in 2007 with a goal of raising more than $70 million to improve and construct new athletic facilities, grow the Hurricane Club Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund and strengthen the Athletic Department endowment. Included in the campaign is a $25 million goal to improve the football facilities, renovate the training room and build a new academic building. The first stage of construction and renovation on the football offices in the Hecht Athletic Center has been completed. Coaches’ offices, conference rooms and team meeting rooms were re-designed, and new offices for the Football Operations and Football Relations departments were also built and furnished. The next renovation project will include the football locker room and a $5 million upgrade to the training room.

The crown jewel of the Hecht Athletic Complex is the Hurricane Strength and Conditioning Complex, which recently underwent renovations in the spring of 2008. The 11,500-square foot facility, which also received an upgrade in 2001, features the latest in strength and conditioning equipment. It provides the focal point of Miami’s annual NFL Pro Timing Day each spring, and it is also used by dozens of NFL players who return to Coral Gables for their offseason workouts.

One of the most important facility projects to be undertaken by the Athletic Department is the construction of a four-story Academic Building, including a renovated space for the Tom Kearns Hall of Fame. The new building will be a space for student-athletes to pursue their academic dreams and will house computer laboratories, a math and writing center, private study cubicles, study meeting rooms and office space for the academic staff.

The Hecht Athletic Center underwent an $8 million expansion in 2001, a project that also added a players lounge and an outdoor terrace overlooking Greentree Practice Fields; an expansion to the football equipment room; a new office suite for the head coach; locker rooms for women’s track, soccer and men’s track; and an Olympic sports equipment room.

The generosity of former football student-athletes and friends of the program has provided funding for the Athletic Department to establish an environment which develops champions on and off the field.

HURRICANE

TRADITION

Hurricane Traditions The Hurricanes It began in controversy. Some reports say the players on the 1927 football team held a team meeting to select Hurricanes, hoping they would sweep away opponents just as the devastating storm did on September 16, 1926. Another version holds that Jack Bell, a columnist for the old Miami News, asked end Porter Norris of the 1926 team what the team should be called. Told that the local dignitaries and University officials wanted to name the team for a local flora or fauna, Norris said the players wouldn’t stand for it and suggested “Hurricanes” since the opening game had been postponed by such a storm. From time to time, opposition has arisen to the name that would “reinforce Miami’s negative reputation as a weather-beaten community living constantly under the threat of destruction.” But as one UM official rationalized in the 1960s, “Does anyone think Chicago is overrun by bears just because the town has a football team by that name?” Orange, Green and White UM’s school colors were selected in 1926. The colors of the Florida orange tree represent UM. Orange symbolizes the fruit of the tree, green represents the leaves and white, the blossoms. The U In 1973, UM’s Athletic Federation, the fund-raising arm of the athletic department at the time, commissioned a local public relations expert to develop a distinctive logo. The University had gone several years with a variety of helmet and uniform changes and the Federation noted that a number of major colleges have the initials UM. Miami designer Bill Bodenhamer suggested the “U” idea, which lent itself to distinctive logos for each sport as well as slogans like “U gotta believe” and “U is great.” Sebastian the Ibis Folklore maintains that the Ibis, a symbol of knowledge found in the Everglades and

Egypt, is the last sign of wildlife to take shelter before a hurricane and the first to reappear after the storm. The local marsh bird was considered UM’s first unofficial mascot when the school yearbook adopted the name “Ibis” in 1926. Its popularity grew among the students during the 1950s. In 1957, San Sebastian Hall, a residence hall on campus, sponsored an Ibis entry in the homecoming celebration. The next year, student John Stormont performed at games in an Ibis costume that was glued, sewn and pinned together and was the forerunner of today’s bird. Through the years, the Ibis has become one of the most recognizable college mascots in the United States. The “Smoke” The traditional Hurricane “smoke” entrance in the Orange Bowl began in the 1950s. In an attempt to increase fan interest, UM transportation director Bob Nalette came up with the idea of using fire extinguishers to produce the now-famous smoke that the Hurricanes run through as they enter the field. In his spare time almost 50 years ago, Nalette welded a pipe together that even today billows smoke from the top of the Hurricanes’ entrance tunnel. The original setup included flashing lights, two large hurricane flags and a tape of a hurricane being blasted over the loud speaker. The flags and lights are now gone but the smoke and sound track still remain. Cheerleaders The University of Miami cheerleaders are the catalyst for school spirit. Along with cheering at both home and away athletic contests, the squads are a strong public relations arm for the University. Active in community service and charitable projects, the cheerleaders are a great source of pride for the University and the City of Miami. The University of Miami has two squads the Co-Ed and All Girl Squads. The Co-Ed squad is under the direction of coaches Monica and Joe Sanchez, and the co-ed cheerleaders are consistently rated among the nation’s top squads. The All-Girl Squad is under the direction of Beverly Perez.

Sunsations Now in their 22nd year of entertaining fans, the University of Miami Sunsations dance team is a squad of enthusiastic and talented performers. Their reputation for excellence has grown both locally and nationally. The Sunsations, coached by former member Kristine Stephenson and Elisha Kairalla, perform at many charitable and community service events in addition to Hurricane football and basketball games.

The 2008-2009 “Band of the Hour” is led onto the field by drum majors Jenny Denk, Jeffrey Lawson, and Brad Newman. In its 75th year of existence, the “Band of the Hour” strives to continue tradition through unity, enthusiasm, pride and determination. The “Band of the Hour” is a family united by one common goal: to serve as “The Eye of Hurricane Spirit!” For more information about the “Band of the Hour” or to purchase recordings of the band, please visit our website www.music.miami.edu/band

Marching Band The University of Miami “Band of the Hour”, named in 1948 after a Henry Fillmore march, Man of the Hour, has existed in one form or another since 1933. Along with its commitment to musical and artistic excellence, the “Band of the Hour” has maintained a long tradition of service to the university. The University of Miami’s “Band of the Hour” is the largest and most spirited student organization on the UM campus and draws its membership from the entire student body, representing every state and most majors.

Four Fingers At the beginning of the fourth quarter at every home football game, Miami players and fans can be seen holding up four fingers. The sign indicates their belief that a game is won in that crucial final period. True Hurricane fans and players use the sign as a symbol they own that last quarter.

Along with the activities related to Hurricane football, including pep rallies, parades, home football games, and regular television appearances, the “Band of the Hour” has performed in numerous national conventions, national television variety shows, three major motion pictures, a national television commercial and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. In addition, the band has served four times as host band for the prestigious American Bandmasters Association, a distinction held by no other college band. The “Band of the Hour” has performed at the 1987, 1994 and 2003 Fiesta Bowls; the 1989, 1992, 1995 and 2004 Orange Bowls; the 1990, 1993 and 2001 Sugar Bowls; the

Lil’ Joe and Touchdown Tommy “Lil’ Joe” was a forerunner to the present “Touchdown Tommy” cannon fired by the Sigma Chi fraternity after each UM score. War Canoe Trophy An authentic Seminole war canoe, hand carved and painted by Seminole Indians from a 200-year-old Everglades cypress tree felled by lighting, was donated on behalf of the city of Hollywood in 1955 as a trophy for the annual football game between Miami and Florida. The canoe symbolized the magnificent spirit and fighting determination traditional of the independent Florida Seminole tribe that was displayed annually between the Hurricanes and Gators. Today the canoe is on display in UM’s Sports Hall of Fame on campus.

The following is a list of community programs and events that the Hurricanes have contributed their time and service to: Hurricanes Speakers Bureau: Student-athletes, coaches and staff take time to speak to groups about developing a positive, winning lifestyle. 5000 Role Models: The project’s goal is to have student-athletes and athletic department staff members intervene in the lives of at-risk boys to provide them with alternatives that will lead them away from crime and violence. Join-a-Team, Not-a-Gang: Its purpose is to encourage area youth to seek positive alternatives to gangs. Red Ribbon Week: An annual week-long event where student-athletes make appearances at local schools and organizations to educate children on the importance of staying drug free. Thanksgiving Dinner Delivery: Student-athletes deliver Thanksgiving dinners, donated by Sysco Food Services, to needy organizations. Future Canes Program: Exposes at-risk youth, disabled persons and disadvantaged

children to a university atmosphere and Hurricane athletic events. Canes on Patrol: Student-athletes are given an inside look at police work riding with Broward County Sheriffs and assisting in their patrols. The University of Miami is committed to a program that provides educational experience and services in order to develop well-balanced lifestyles for student-athletes; encourage growth in decision making, planning and fulfillment of career and life goals; and to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience. In the process of achieving this mission, the Life Skills Program will: • Support the efforts of every student-athlete toward graduation • Use athletics as a preparation for success in life • Meet the changing needs of student-athletes • Enhance interpersonal relationships in the lives of student athletes • Assist student-athletes to build self esteem • Enable student-athletes to make meaningful contributions to their communities • Promote ownership by the student-athlete of his/her academic, athletic, personal and social responsibilities • Enhance partnerships between the athletic department, other campus departments and the community for the purpose of education Athletic Department staff work closely with the University’s Counseling Center, Health Center, Wellness Center, Dean of Students and Volunteer Services to provide services for our student-athletes. We also use numerous resources from the South Florida Community for our programming. The Personal Development Component of our Life Skills Program provides student-athletes opportunities to focus on personal growth and developing healthy lifestyles.

GAME 1 - MIAMI 31, MARSHALL 3 SATURDAY, SEPT. 1, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

GAME 2 - OKLAHOMA 51, MIAMI 13 SATURDAY, SEPT. 8, 2007 - MEMORIAL STADIUM

MIAMI (AP) - Randy Shannon’s debut as coach of the Miami Hurricanes was a breeze. Javarris James ran for two touchdowns, Tavares Gooden and Calais Campbell had interceptions to set up easy scoring drives and the Hurricanes recorded six sacks while beating Marshall 31-3 at the Orange Bowl. Graig Cooper ran 12 times for 116 yards in his first college game, James rushed for 99 more and Kirby Freeman completed 9 of 21 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown as Miami (1-0) won its final season-opener at the Orange Bowl. Bernard Morris completed 16 of 27 passes for 162 yards for Marshall (0-1), but he was intercepted three times. Unranked entering a season for the first time since 1998, Miami looked at the opener as its first chance to prove this isn’t the same sort of team that stumbled its way to a 76 record last season. The Hurricanes didn’t waste time suggesting their new coach will change things around. Shannon is a Miami native, was a star linebacker at the school and spent 14 years as a Hurricanes assistant. He was defensive coordinator the past six seasons under Larry Coker, who was fired in November and watched Saturday from the Orange Bowl’s third floor — as a TV analyst. Shannon probably liked most of what he saw, too. Gooden caught Morris’ deflected pass midway through the opening quarter and ran it back 35 yards to the Marshall 1 — not scoring only because Morris hopped on his back inside the 5 and eventually wrestled him down. On the next play, Freeman hit DajLeon Farr with a scoring pass that put Miami up 10-0. Campbell’s interception came with 3 1/2 minutes left in the second period. The 6-foot8 defensive end released from a blocker and made a one-handed snare of Morris’ pass, getting taken down at the Marshall 24. James scored on a 5-yard run three plays later for a 17-0 edge. James pushed the lead to 24-0 with 7:06 left in the third with a 5-yard score. His 50yard run on that drive was nullified by a holding penalty, but Cooper took off on a 56-yard scamper one play later to set up the Hurricanes’ third touchdown. Anthony Binswanger’s 37-yard field goal with 13:37 remaining ensured Marshall would avoid the shutout. Tight end Chris Zellner recovered a fumble in the end zone with 1:51 left for Miami’s final touchdown.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - By the time Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford threw his school record-tying fifth touchdown pass, the bad memories from past Miami games were long gone. Malcolm Kelly caught three of Bradford’s TD passes and Reggie Smith returned a fumble for a score as the No. 5 Sooners rolled over Miami 51-13 in their first meeting since the Hurricanes swept three games in the 1980s. Bradford completed 19-of-25 passes for 205 yards in his second career start as the Sooners (2-0) evened the all-time series at three games each. All three of Oklahoma’s losses came in a three-year span when the Sooners went 33-0 against all opponents except the Hurricanes. Oklahoma built a 21-3 first-half lead on Bradford’s touchdown passes of 23 and 24 yards to Kelly and Smith’s 61-yard return of a Javarris James fumble, the third-longest fumble return in Sooners’ history. Neither starter Kirby Freeman nor backup Kyle Wright could mount enough of a comeback, and Miami (1-1) suffered its most lopsided defeat since a 66-13 loss to Syracuse on Nov. 28, 1998. Under Freeman’s guidance, Miami settled for a field goal after getting a first-and-goal at the 8-yard line following Oklahoma sophomore Derek Shaw’s snap over punter Michael Cohen’s head. Through seven offensive drives, Freeman completed only two passes for 10 yards and Miami had only one first down. That’s when Shannon made a change. Wright, who split starts with Freeman last season, led an 18-play, 52-yard scoring drive that was extended by a fake field goal and two pass interference penalties in the end zone. Wright finished it with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Hill to pull Miami within 21-10 before the half. The Hurricanes had a chance to cut into the deficit even more after Chris Brown fumbled on Oklahoma’s opening second-half drive, but again settled for a Francesco Zampogna field goal. Miami finished with 139 total yards and seven first downs. Wright was 7-for-14 for 65 yards. Freeman, who returned late in the third quarter, was 3-for-9 for 17 yards. James and Graig Cooper, who combined for 215 yards rushing in a 31-3 win against Marshall last week, were held to 54 yards.

NATIONAL CHAMPIONS 1983 1987 1989 1991 2001

GAME 3 - MIAMI 23, FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL 9 SATURDAY, SEPT. 15, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

GAME 4 - MIAMI 34, (16) TEXAS A&M 17 THURSDAY, SEPT. 20, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

MIAMI (AP) - Kyle Wright threw an 80-yard pass to Lance Leggett for Miami’s longest offensive score in nearly two years, and the Hurricanes beat Florida International 23-9 Saturday in a rematch of South Florida rivals. Darnell Jenkins had a career-high 108 yards receiving, Javarris James ran for 92 yards and Kenny Phillips and Chavez Grant had interceptions for Miami (2-1). The Hurricanes held a 428-264 edge in total yards, sending the Golden Panthers (03) to their 15th straight loss. Wright finished 10-of-19 for 224 yards, and Francesco Zampogna kicked three field goals for Miami. Wayne Younger threw a 65-yard touchdown pass to Trenard Turner midway through the final quarter and A’mod Ned rushed for 87 yards for FIU, which lost 35-0 last season to its foe from the campus 9 miles away. Miami took control late in the third when Wright found Leggett down the right sideline for a 23-3 lead. Leggett got separation by stiff-arming FIU’s Lionell Singleton after the catch and sprinted to the end zone. FIU got within 14 points when Younger found Turner for the Golden Panthers’ lone touchdown, but the outcome was never in doubt. Miami missed some opportunities. The Hurricanes’ first two possessions started in FIU territory, and resulted in no points after a missed field goal and an interception by the Golden Panthers’ Anthony Gaitor. The third possession also began on FIU’s side of the field, and Graig Cooper came through. He carried the ball on all four plays for 33 yards, the last a 3-yard run for a 7-0 lead. Zampogna added field goals of 27 and 24 yards to send Miami into halftime with a 13-0 lead. FIU got within 10 when Chris Abed kicked a 24yard field goal in the third, and Zampogna answered with another 27-yarder.

MIAMI (AP) - For one night, everything worked for the Miami Hurricanes, who finally got that signature win the program has craved for a couple of years. Kyle Wright threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns, Graig Cooper scored twice and the Hurricanes stymied No. 20 Texas A&M’s high-powered offense in a 34-17 victory Thursday night. The win was only Miami’s second in its last nine games against a ranked opponent dating to the end of the 2005 season. And it was never in doubt. The Hurricanes (3-1) held the Aggies (3-1) to 38 yards in the first half yards in taking a 24-0 lead, ensuring their final Thursday night game at the venerable Orange Bowl would be a memorable one. Wright completed 21 of 26 passes, finding Cooper with one scoring throw and Chris Zellner with another late in the third quarter to push the lead to 31-0. Sam Shields had six catches for 117 yards for Miami, which had three scoring drives take a combined 1 minute, 9 seconds. Miami scored 10 points off three Texas A&M turnovers in the final 3:40 of the half more midweek magic for the Hurricanes, who won their final 10 Thursday games in the Orange Bowl. And Wright may have played the best game of his Miami career, too. On their first possession, Wright and the Hurricanes quickly set the tone. They had an 18-play, 80-yard drive, highlighted by Wright going 5-for-5 on third downs and took a 7-0 lead when Cooper took a direct snap and rumbled 7 yards for a score. The direct snap, a new Miami wrinkle for this game, had a big role in the Hurricanes’ second score. Miami got inside the Texas A&M 10 on a fortunate bounce; Wright’s pass hit off Darnell Jenkins’ hands, caromed off Aggies’ linebacker Mark Dodge, and landed on Jenkins - who was on the ground and made the catch. Indeed, it was that kind of night for Miami, which finished with a 402-240 edge in total yards. Wright was spread right like a wide receiver on third-and-2 and fourth-and-1 plays inside the Aggies’ 5. Javarris James took both snaps, eventually got the first down, then scored from 1 yard out for a 14-0 lead. Miami missed a chance later in the half after Colin McCarthy intercepted McGee’s pass and returned it to the Aggies 22, coming up empty when Francesco Zampogna missed a 36-yard field goal. But Goodson fumbled the ball away on the next possession. Calais Campbell recovered for Miami and the Hurricanes needed one play to go up 21-0. Wright hit Cooper with a screen pass and the freshman did the rest, barreling in from 12 yards out with 33 seconds left in the half. It got worse for Texas A&M. After a short kickoff, Cody Wallace - an offensive lineman - fumbled the ensuing return, the Hurricanes recovered again and Zampogna hit a 45yarder as time expired in the half.

GAME 5 - MIAMI 24, DUKE 14 SATURDAY, SEPT. 29, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

GAME 6 - NORTH CAROLINA 33, MIAMI 27 SATURDAY, OCT. 6, 2007 - KENAN STADIUM

MIAMI (AP) - Kyle Wright returned from an injury to throw a game-sealing touchdown pass to DajLeon Farr with 2:15 left, and Miami escaped an upset bid by Duke for the second straight year by beating the Blue Devils 24-14 on Saturday. Wright was 19-of-23 for 230 yards and two touchdowns for the Hurricanes (4-1, 1-0), who won their Atlantic Coast Conference opener for the first time in three years. Thad Lewis completed 18 of 27 passes for 241 yards and two touchdowns for Duke, which dropped a 20-15 decision to the Hurricanes last year - and gave Miami fits again, all the way to the final minutes. His 31-yard pass to Eron Riley got Duke (1-4, 0-2) within 17-14 with 9:46 left, and Duke was driving deep in Miami territory later in the final quarter. But Eric Moncur’s sack - one of nine by Miami - ended a drive with three minutes left, and two plays later, the Hurricanes’ offense sealed the win. Graig Cooper, who had a 2-yard TD run earlier in the fourth after a contested pass interference call, opened the drive with a 27-yard run. Wright, who left at the start of the fourth quarter with a cut inside his mouth, then found Farr with a 33-yard scoring pass on the next play. Cooper had 101 yards on 12 carries for Miami. Leon Wright had two interceptions and Ronnie Drummond caught a screen pass and ran 40 yards for a touchdown for Duke, which is now 1-24 in its last 25 games and has dropped 19 straight against ACC foes. Miami outgained Duke 430-302. The Hurricanes led 10-0 at halftime, as Miami still has not allowed a first-half point in four home games this season. Antonio Dixon sacked Lewis for a 12-yard loss on the game’s first play, setting up a three-and-out, and Miami got the ball for the first time at the Duke 46. The Hurricanes needed eight plays to score from there, with Wright finding Kayne Farquharson for a 5yard touchdown pass with 8:34 left in the opening quarter. It was only the second catch of the season for Farquharson, and it was a good one: He found a seam near the back of the end zone and stretched his 6-foot-2 frame high to grab Wright’s hard-thrown pass. Francesco Zampogna’s 47-yard field goal five minutes later made it 10-0, but the Hurricanes didn’t score again in the half, even though Wright was 10-for-11 in the opening two quarters and Miami held a 200-112 lead in total offense.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Brandon Tate scored on a long end-around in a spurt of 27 points to start the game and Connor Barth kicked four field goals to help North Carolina hold off Miami 33-27, giving Davis his first ACC win against a program he once built into a national champion. Anthony Elzy ran for 95 yards and a score for the Tar Heels (2-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who turned in a dominating performance to take a 27-0 lead at halftime then hung on as the Hurricanes (4-2, 1-1) twice rallied to within a touchdown in the second half. Davis had played down his first game against the Hurricanes earlier in the week and said after the game that beating Miami didn’t make the victory anymore special. The Tar Heels had struggled to do that this season, from a 34-31 loss on a final-play field goal at East Carolina to a 22-20 loss to Virginia and last week’s 17-10 loss at Virginia Tech. This time, they put together big plays when they needed them in the second half: a punt-forcing sack from Hilee Taylor to end a Miami drive near midfield late in the third quarter; a 49-yard catch-and-run from Tate on the ensuing possession; and two fourth-quarter field goals from Barth that kept Miami in catch-up mode. Davis took over at Miami in 1995. He gradually brought the Hurricanes back to the prominence they had enjoyed under Jimmy Johnson, going 51-20 over six seasons, while winning three Big East Conference titles and four bowl games. His last team went 11-1 and finished ranked No. 2 nationally in 2000 after winning the Sugar Bowl. Then, after Davis left to coach the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, his former players went unbeaten in 2001 and won a national title under Larry Coker. Davis’ new team got off to a fast start against Miami and Shannon, who was a player and an assistant under Davis. But Miami did everything it could to get back in the game, with Darnell Jenkins scoring on a 97-yard touchdown catch that made it 27-20 late in the third quarter and Javarris James scoring on a short run to set up an onside kick with about a minute left. The Tar Heels ultimately hung on by holding off several Miami spurts, including Jenkins’ long TD catch from Wright that was the second-longest in Miami history and the longest allowed by North Carolina in its history. But Barth kicked 20- and 35-yard field goals, setting a school record with 19 consecutive made kicks, that pushed the lead to 33-20 with 10:55 left. North Carolina finished with a season-high 183 yards rushing, with quarterback T.J. Yates adding a touchdown on a keeper in the second quarter. Yates threw for 218 yards.

GAME 7 - GEORGIA TECH 17, MIAMI 14 SATURDAY, OCT. 13, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL MIAMI (AP) - Tashard Choice ran for a career-high 204 yards on 37 carries, quarterback Taylor Bennett rushed for two touchdowns and Georgia Tech controlled the second half to beat Miami 17-14. Travis Bell’s 39-yard field goal with 7:34 left was the eventual game-winner for Georgia Tech (4-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). Shawnbrey McNeal had a 39-yard touchdown run on a fourth-down play for Miami (4-3, 1-2 ACC), which came in allowing 111 rushing yards per game, but let Choice eclipse that by the midpoint of the third quarter. The Yellow Jackets trailed 7-0 at halftime, and came out after intermission with a simple plan: Give Choice the ball. It worked. Choice went 54 yards on Tech’s opening drive of the second half, and the Yellow Jackets pulled into a 7-7 tie when Bennett curled to his left and made a 10-yard sprint for the score. Miami went three-and-out on its next possession, and Georgia Tech rode Choice again on its next drive, giving him the ball eight times on an eight-minute, 14-play, 77-yard grind capped by Bennett going in on another bootleg from 3 yards out. The Hurricanes answered with a long drive to tie the game. McNeal came through again on fourth down - getting 6 yards on fourth-and-1 from the 15 - and Kyle Wright hit Sam Shields with a 4-yard scoring pass with 10:37 left in the game. But after Bell’s field goal, the Hurricanes stalled. The drive could have started at the 25, but an unnecessary roughness penalty on Derron Thomas sent Miami back to the 13, and the Hurricanes managed only a couple yards before punting. Miami never got the ball back, and was outgained 244-79 in the second half. Miami cornerback Bruce Johnson got his first career interception with 6:32 left in the first quarter, wrestling what would have been a touchdown away from Georgia Tech’s Greg Smith in the right corner of the end zone - setting up the drive where McNeal scored the game’s first TD. With about 7 1/2 minutes left before halftime, backup quarterback Josh Nesbitt darted through the left side of a 14-yard gain, which would have taken Georgia Tech to Miami 23. But left guard Matt Rhodes was flagged twice on that play, first for holding and then for unnecessary roughness. So instead of third-and-1, the Yellow Jackets were faced with second-and-38 and wound up punting. Score by Quarters

GAME 8 - MIAMI 37, FLORIDA STATE 29 SATURDAY, OCT. 20, 2007 - DOAK CAMPBELL STADIUM TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Colin McCarthy returned a fumble 27 yards for Miami’s second touchdown in 11 seconds late in the fourth quarter and the Hurricanes beat Florida State 37-29. For the first time since 1977, the rivalry game that helped decide so many national titles during the 1980s and 90s was played with neither team ranked. Minutes before Miami’s two quick touchdowns, the Hurricanes appeared to have lost their best chance to get the win when Kirby Freeman was stopped for no gain on a fourthand-1 at the Florida State 1 with 5:29 left and Miami trailing 29-24. But Freeman, who replaced injured Kyle Wright in the first half, drove Miami 83 yards in a 1 1/2 minutes to take the lead 30-29 on a 13-yard pass to Dedrick Epps with 1:15 left. Xavier Lee, who was intercepted twice, then fumbled after being hit by Miami’s Teraz McCray, and McCarthy ran it in for the clincher. Lee threw two interceptions and lost two fumbles for Florida State. He completed 14 of 32 passes for 208 yards in his third start of the season. The Seminoles wasted five field goals by Gary Cismesia and Antone Smith’s first 100-yard game of the year as he finished with 114 yards on 22 carries. Cismesia’s fourth field goal, from 45 yards, gave Florida State a 26-24 lead late in the third quarter of the back-and-forth contest, and he added another from the same distance early in the fourth quarter for the 29-24 lead. The Hurricanes had grabbed a 24-23 lead on a trick play midway through the third quarter when place-kicker Francesco Zampogna took an over-the-shoulder toss from his holder and found tight end DajLeon Farr on a 26-yard scoring pass. Wright, who hurt his left ankle, was 6 of 10 for 88 yards, but threw an interception that put Florida State into a 17-14 lead. Toddrick Verdell’s 45-yard touchdown run was followed by a Cismesia field goal that put the Seminoles ahead 20-17 at halftime. Miami also scored two quick touchdowns in the first quarter to grab an early 14-3 lead. The Hurricanes went ahead 7-3 lead on Wright’s 1-yard run on a scoring drive highlighted by Wright’s 64-yard third down pass to Darnell Jenkins. Graig Cooper then added a 2-yard TD run set up by a fumble by Florida State’s Smith. Score by Quarters

GAME 9 - NC STATE 19, MIAMI 16 SATURDAY, NOV. 3, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

GAME 10 - VIRGINIA 48, MIAMI 0 SATURDAY, NOV. 10, 2007 - ORANGE BOWL

MIAMI (AP) — Steven Hauschka’s fourth field goal, a 42-yarder in overtime, lifted surging North Carolina State to a 19-16 win over Miami. Hauschka made three field goals in the final quarter as the Wolfpack (4-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) overcame a 137 deficit to win their third straight game - and give coach Tom O’Brien his first-ever win at the Orange Bowl. Daniel Evans was 19-for-40 passing for 207 yards for N.C. State, which also got a 27-carry, 89-yard effort from Jamelle Eugene. Miami kicker Daren Daly missed two field goals, including a 27-yarder on the first possession of overtime. The Hurricanes (5-4, 2-3) lost despite running 60 times for 314 yards against the ACC’s worst run defense. But the Hurricanes simply couldn’t pass the ball. Kirby Freeman, playing for the injured Kyle Wright, was 1-for-14 for 84 yards and three interceptions. Freeman’s lone completion was a touchdown pass to Darnell Jenkins that put Miami up 10-0, but the Hurricanes sputtered the rest of the way. Down 16-13 after Hauschka’s 47-yarder with 6:55 left, the Hurricanes ran on the first 15 plays of their final drive of regulation, getting to the N.C. State 10 with 33 seconds left. Out of timeouts, Miami called two passing plays, but Freeman’s attempts toward Sam Shields were both broken up in the end zone. So Daly kicked a 27-yard field goal with 19 seconds left, sending the game to overtime. Miami got the ball first, and all six plays were rushes - including on third-and-10 from the 12. Daly then missed a 27-yarder wide left, and moments later, the Wolfpack were celebrating. Miguel Scott, DaJuan Morgan and Jeremy Gray had interceptions for N.C. State, which hadn’t been to the Orange Bowl since 1982. Javarris James ran for 103 yards and Miami outgained N.C. State 398-317, but things were so bad offensively that, at times, the Hurricanes decided it was better to go without a quarterback. During the second quarter, one possession after Freeman threw an interception to Scott receiver Lance Leggett either ran the wrong route or one Freeman wasn’t expecting the Hurricanes had Jenkins line up as quarterback and take snaps on two straight plays. Those two plays went for minus-12 yards, so that experiment ended quickly. But Freeman had one great moment, finding Jenkins later in the quarter for an 84-yard TD pass. The Wolfpack bit when Freeman faked a handoff to Graig Cooper, giving Jenkins time to get behind two defenders. He caught the ball and raced the final 40 yards to the end zone. N.C. State became the first visitor to get a first-half score at the Orange Bowl this season with 2:04 left until intermission. Evans’ 1-yard run cut it to 10-7 and capped a nineplay, 66-yard drive. Miami went up 13-7 late in the third on Daly’s 33-yard field goal, one play after Jenkins was ruled out-of-bounds on what would have been a touchdown catch. The Wolfpack scored on their first three possessions of the fourth, with Hauschka connecting on field goals of 31 and 35 yards before his 47-yarder made it 16-13.

MIAMI (AP) — There were dozens of former star Miami players in attendance for the Orange Bowl’s farewell, including some wearing national championship and Super Bowl rings as No. 23 Virginia ended Miami’s 70-year stay at the famed stadium in stunningly one-sided fashion Saturday night. Mikell Simpson had a pair of 1-yard touchdown runs and quarterback Jameel Sewell scored twice, as the Cavaliers posted a 48-0 victory. Chris Cook had a 44-yard fumble return for a score with 2:26 left, putting Virginia’s effort into the Miami history books. It topped the 44-0 beating Notre Dame put on the Hurricanes at the Orange Bowl in 1973. It was Miami’s first home shutout loss since Oct. 4, 1974 against Auburn, and the Hurricanes’ worst defeat since losing 66-13 at Syracuse on Nov. 28, 1998. The last time Miami lost this badly at home was in 1944, when Texas A&M beat the Hurricanes 70-14. Farewell, Orange Bowl. Sewell completed 20-of-25 passes and 288 yards for Virginia (9-2, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), which led 31-0 at halftime, a margin that turned an already-sad night for some Hurricanes downright funereal. Virginia did most of its damage with its trio of tight ends, who caught 10 passes for 154 yards. Kyle Wright completed 9-of-21 passes for 94 yards for Miami (5-5, 2-4), which ended its Orange Bowl run on a three-game losing streak.

GAME 11 - VIRGINIA TECH 44, MIAMI 14 SATURDAY, NOV. 17, 2007 - LANE STADIUM

GAME 12 - BOSTON COLLEGE 28, MIAMI 14 SATURDAY, NOV. 24, 2007 - ALUMNI STADIUM

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -Branden Ore hasn’t had the year he or Virginia Tech expected, but the Hokies tailback is hitting his stride at the right time. Ore ran for two touchdowns, both times plowing over a Miami defender to get to the end zone, and No. 10 Virginia Tech beat Miami 44-14. Virginia Tech (9-2, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) moved into a share of first place in the Coastal Division with Virginia. Ore, who has not approached the form that produced nearly 1,400 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns last season, signaled that the nicks and pulls that have slowed him all season had finally subsided with a 22-yard run on the Hokies’ second offensive play. He said the offensive line, finally healthy too, made it possible. Sean Glennon threw a touchdown pass to Justin Harper and Jahre Cheeseman and Carlton Weatherford had scoring runs for the Hokies. Weatherford’s was his first career touchdown and came on a day he and 19 other seniors were honored before the game. Harper was among them, and followed his best game with probably his best catch, an over-the-shoulder, one-hand grab of Glennon’s pass in the right corner of the end zone. Glennon was to share time with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback, but Taylor pulled a muscle in his left side on a scramble in the third quarter and Glennon got most of the snaps. Miami (5-6, 2-5), coming off a 48-0 home loss last weekend in its final game in the Orange Bowl, came out looking like a team that had given up. The ‘Canes went three-and-out on each of their first three possessions, trailed 17-0 after the first quarter and had been outgained 150-6 before Kyle Wright brought them out of their slumber. Making passes repeatedly as he was getting hit, Wright drove Miami into Hokies territory three times in the second quarter, but got only one score out of it. The first time, Wright was sacked and stripped of the ball by Barry Booker at the Tech 18. The next time, Virginia Tech stuffed consecutive runs from the 1 by Javarris James and took the ball over on downs. On the third trip, Wright ran it in from the 4 himself 21 seconds before halftime. The Hurricanes scored on their first possession of the second half, with Wright hitting Leonard Hankerson with a 1-yard pass to make it 20-14. But the Hokies drove 68 yards in six plays, with Ore getting the last 38 on four runs, to answer with a touchdown of their own. It never got close again. The game also marked the return of Hokies linebacker Vince Hall, who missed four games with a broken left forearm and wrist. Hall had a team-high 13 tackles. Wright finished 21-of-36 for 215 yards, and Miami had minus 2 rushing yards.

BOSTON (AP) -Boston College ended a 15-game losing streak against Miami to head into the Atlantic Coast Conference title game with a victory. Matt Ryan threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns Saturday to lead 15th-ranked BC to a 28-14 win, BC’s first victory over Miami since the 1984 “Hail Flutie” pass that ended one of the greatest games in college football history. Boston College (10-2, 6-2 ACC) will play for the conference championship in Jacksonville, Fla., on Dec. 1 against Virginia Tech, which beat Virginia 33-21 Saturday for the Coastal Division title. BC already clinched the Atlantic Division with last week’s victory over Clemson. The Hurricanes (5-7, 2-6) failed to qualify for a bowl game for the first time in 10 years. Ryan completed 26-of-43 passes and finished with 28 touchdowns for the season to break the school record Doug Flutie set in ‘84. Andre Callender ran 15 times for 96 yards and a 45-yard touchdown that made it 28-14 after Miami hung close for most of the game. The Eagles won 10 regular-season games for the second consecutive season. With a victory next Saturday, they would play in the Orange Bowl - their first-ever appearance in a Bowl Championship Series game. Kyle Wright completed 23-of-42 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns, finishing his college career with 478 completions to pass Bernie Kosar and move into third on Miami’s all-time list. But Wright also threw an interception and lost a fumble. BC’s turnovers kept it close, and the Hurricanes cut the deficit to 14-7 early in the third on a 23-yard pass to Ryan Hill, one play after Glenn Sharpe intercepted Ryan. Near the end of the quarter, BC got the ball on Wright’s fumble, then Ryan fumbled it back two plays later. Wright led the Hurricanes on an eight-play, 41-yard drive, hitting Sam Shields from the 2 to tie it with 11:44 left in the game. That’s when BC took over the game. Ryan hit Gunnell on the right sideline and he broke free for a 49-yard gain, then Clarence Megwa laid out for a 22-yard touchdown pass to complete the two-play, 16-second drive that made it 21-14. After Miami went three-and-out, Callender broke through the middle and went 45 yards to the end zone.
