Fascinating comments from Miami football coach Randy Shannon in the Miami Herald. The Hurricanes went 5-7 overall and 2-6 in the ACC in Shannon's first season. Who's fault was that? Larry Coker, of course.
"Last year I thought we could have won more games than we did. But the thing I didn't look at was depth. We didn't have any depth," Shannon said.
Depth, in coachspeak, translates to recruiting. The Canes used 11 true freshmen last season and had eight freshmen enroll in January who'll likely do the same.
''It's the same thing Coach [Howard] Schnellenberger did when he changed the process at Miami,'' Shannon said.
Miami's 30-19 since joining the ACC and 12-13 the past two seasons.
