Shannon on Orange Bowl: I Don't Know

The status of Miami and the Orange Bowl has been a hot topic in recent months and Randy Shannon addressed the issue today.

Will the Hurricanes continue playing in the Orange Bowl? If not, when will the move be made? When will it become official?

Those are just some of the constant questions coming up in recent months about the status of the Orange Bowl and the relationship the University of Miami will continue having with it.

Randy Shannon said he doesn't care about that right now.

"I don't know, so don't ask me much about the Orange Bowl," Shannon said. "I'm just here, and whatever decision they need to make, they'll make it. Whatever the decision is, it'll be the right decision for Miami. They'll make the decision and then we'll go play the game wherever we are supposed to."

Shannon doesn't care too much about it right now because he understands the fact that it's about the football game being played, not the stadium it's being played in.

"I played at Traz Powell for four years before coming to the University of Miami, and it's no different," he said. "It's football. We just have to accept what it is and move on. Whatever decision happens, it's not going to make a difference to me. I have to just deal with whatever decision is made."

Quarterback Kirby Freeman said he's not sure about the future of the Orange Bowl and he only cares about one thing -- the fact that the team is playing its games there this season.

"We know that right now this season," Freeman said, "we're playing at the Orange Bowl, and that's what we're excited about. Whether our game is on Thursday, Saturday, or whatever day it's in, our games are going to be in the Orange Bowl, and we are excited about that."
