UM players talk about recent struggles

Read on to see what some Hurricane players are saying about the team's recent struggles, upcoming Senior Day, and preparing for Pittsburgh.

On Joseph Yearby

On Senior Day:
It means a lot because of all the work they have put in over the last four or five years. It will be emotional for some of them. I will be there to cheer them on.

On his goals in the future:
Help Miami get back on the map in whatever way I can. I also want to be more patient, wait your turn.

On next year’s offensive potential:
We got offensive linemen, good receivers, and a good quarterback coming back.

On Tracy Howard:

On Pitt:
We just have to take our training to the game. We have guys in the secondary and front seven that I trust will do their jobs.

On Senior Day:
It means a lot. I’m not a senior but I have seniors I look up to and have good relationships with. This day is a big one for them. We want to go out there and do it for them.

On the struggles on the road:
Anytime you’re at home and have the crowd behind you it means something. Being on the road is a difference. I’m not making excuses about our troubles on the road but having the crowd behind you helps.

On whether Saturday will be emotional for him:
I wont be said. I’ll be happy for them. All our goals are to make it to the next level so I’ll be happy for a lot of those guys.

Phillip Dorsett

On the struggles this season:
We lost and we’re 6-5. With this program and the tradition here, no one wants to see 6-5. It’s unfortunate. We lost five games but it was a couple plays here and there that could have changed it. But life goes on.

On being a different team at home:
We try to come to play every game no matter what. There’s something about being at home, being comfortable on your own turf. I can’t really say what it is, honestly.
