Miami Football Has ‘Butt Buddies’
Preface: I love Miami Hurricanes football, and likewise, I’m quite happy with all the changes Coach Shannon has brought to the team. And after speaking to Coach over the weekend and finding out what a good guy he is, I have no reason other than to give him the benefit of the doubt with this comment, from the Miami Herald via EDSBS.
When asked about [Graig] Cooper in the spring, Shannon said: “I think Coop did a great job. He brought some some excitement to the team. And he’s a calm guy. He’s not an arrogant or flamboyant guy.” It was going well, then coach goofed. “Belive it or not, he and Javarris James are kind of like butt buddies.”
Butt Buddies? I never got around to asking Cooper or James what exactly that meant. But it probably would have brought a chuckle.
I guess the appropriate comment here would be, “no homo.” Wonder what Edgerrin would have to say about all this. Gotta love the coach cracking on the players in his most unique way. Those are my ‘Canes.
