Big-name 2008 recruits now hope to make mark in NFL

While the players will no longer suit up in orange and green, many of them are now looking to make their mark in the NFL. Spence, drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers, was the ACC Defensive Freshman of the Year at linebacker, Streeter showed he has potential as a big-time NFL receiver and Harris climbed to second all-time in passing touchdowns among UM’s storied quarterbacks. But of course, the story is not that simple.

Offense mostly flat during spring scrimmage

Miami’s first Spring Game at Sun Life stadium was one to forget – at least offensively. With the team split in two, the Orange squad bested the Green 7-6 in a game without many bright spots but a l...

Golden, Canes look forward to the future

Never has a 6-6 season been so memorable, yet so ill-fitting. Miami football has been memorable in the past, but this year could be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Offense stagnant in spring scrimmage

With the team divided up amongst themselves, the Hurricanes Orange squad bested the Green 7-6 in a game without much in the way of bright spots yet rich in quantity of errors.

Young team gets opportunities in first spring scrimmage

The 2012 season may still be roughly six months away, but the Miami Hurricanes football team completed its first day of live action in an inter-squad scrimmage at Ted Hendricks field in Hialeah.

Track and field team kicks season off with several wins

Miami’s track and field season shot the gun this past weekend, as the two-day Hurricane Invitational meet brought teams from across the country to Coral Gables, and provided a launching pad for the full Hurricanes squad to begin preparations for the rest of the season.

Golden hauls in top-10 recruiting class

Negativity in college football recruiting, just as in political campaigns, tends to signify the last bastion of a weakened opponent. According to Al Golden, Miami’s troubles have far too often been the source of another team’s sales pitch – but apparently, nobody bought any of it.

The race for the top elephant in the room

At some point during the current Republican vetting process, eight different candidates challenged for the position of top-elephant-in-the-room: Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bac...

Looking forward to the future

That all of their losses combined for a deficit of 33 points, that each game lost had opportunities in the waning moments to steal victory, may not be enough to overcome or overshadow their totally mediocre record: 6-6. Last season was a farewell to the old in hopes of starting anew, though how they got there was anything but ordinary.

Canes leave Tampa content with 6-3 win

After coming out on the wrong side of close games the entire season, the visiting Hurricanes (6-5, 3-4) finally got it together at the end, beating South Florida 6-3 on a Jake Wieclaw 36-yard field goal as time expired. An offense just short of anemic for the first 55 minutes of the game came to life on a fifteen-play drive, as quarterback Jacory Harris and company got it together in the waning moments to give Wieclaw a chance.
