Shannon says Miami will be angry this Saturday at Duke

Miami comes into Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium Saturday after a lackluster loss at home to Florida State.

"They will be angry," Coach Randy Shannon said of his Hurricanes. "They are disappointed, upset." He added that today's practice was very physical and the players were very enthusiastic.

"You can tell false enthusiasm and this wasn’t false enthusiasm," he said. "There were some big hits in practice today. Guys were going after each other offensively and defensively. Anytime you have that you feel good about it but you have to bring that to the game."

Duke is coming off a decent effort in a close loss at Maryland two weeks ago but will be underdogs at home this week to Miami.

Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe says his team used the off week to not only heal physically but to heal mentally. "I think confidence has suffered to some degree," he said. "Confidence is never given, confidence is earned. So it gave us a chance to get back our confidence, and hopefully we’ve done that."

They'll need it against an angry Miami team.
