Miami's Randy Shannon

- Shannon talked extensively about the Miami-FSU rivalry, and how it's a great, friendly rivalry for college football 

- It'll be different without Bobby Bowden, but he's excited to coach against Jimbo Fisher, who he believes will do a great job in Tallahassee

- This is not a make-or-break year for Jacory Harris, and he believes that Harris has grown under Mark Whipple

- Shannon says that the schedule is just what Miami does, and they're not afraid to schedule tough teams

- Miami has always scheduled tough teams out of conference, and he says "That's what college football is all about"

- He said that since he's been a head coach, this is the best defense he's had

- When asked about ESPN's documentary "It's All About the U," Shannon said it was great for the program, and it was great for their team's recruiting 

- Shannon talked about the depth of his running back position and how it should be a strength of their offense this season

- He talked about some of the offensive line moves they've made, moving guards to offensive tackles

- Shannon likes Ponder as a quarterback

- Jacory Harris' thumb is completely fine according to Shannon

- He mentioned how nice it is that LB Colin McCarthy is finally healthy and ready to go for this season, especially as the unquestioned leader on the defense

- He closed with mentioning how Miami does a lot of teaching in Coral Gables, from compliance, to law enforcement, and other ways of keeping his players grounded

That's all for Randy Shannon today, and we've only got one more interview to close out ACC Football Kickoff with UVA's Mike London coming in next.
