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 large amount of errors. “We made a lot of progress in the spring,” coach Al Golden said….

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.

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.

Golden’s process a work in progress

Miami has run out of options, run out of last-ditch hopes. All that remain are a few guarantees. The only guarantees the Hurricanes have for the season’s last two games, including this Saturday’s matchup against South Florida, aren’t very positive. Miami won’t finish the season with a win against Florida State, won’t earn a trip…
