Golden searching for consistency

As Miami head coach Al Golden has stated often this season, the amount of talent on this team has not been a factor in deciding the outcome. For him, it’s just a matter of showing it.

Too little, too late

On fourth down, trailing by four points with less than a minute remaining, Miami (1-2) had the ball at Kansas State’s two yard line. Senior quarterback Jacory Harris bootlegged to the left, looking for one of three options: a shovel pass in front of him, a receiver in the flats, or an open lane for him to run. The first two options unavailable, Harris tucked the ball and ran, and according to the side judge, scored the game winning touchdown. But upon replay, Harris was down inches before the ball crossed the goal line, turning the ball over to the Wildcats (3-0).

Wildcats pose next test for Canes

For the first time all year, the Hurricanes (1-1) have practiced under typical conditions – a week before game day, with the entire cast of contributors accustomed to the team dynamics.

Buckeye beatdown

For the first time since Golden was announced as Miami’s new head coach, Saturday’s win against Ohio State provided fans and athletes alike something positive to think about. The Canes defense that faltered at times against Maryland in their first game was born anew with three of the five reinstated players making major contributions, most notably senior linebacker Sean Spence. Special teams did what special teams ought to do, never putting their own offense or defense in a difficult position and making it as difficult as possible for their opponent.

Harris thrilled to return against Buckeyes

The past five weeks, and really the past four years, have been anything but predictable for Harris. After battling with Robert Marve for the quarterback position his freshman year and failing to find consistent success for the past two seasons, the senior quarterback has proven himself to be durable despite his lanky frame. And after hurdling his latest obstacle as a Miami Hurricane – a one game suspension for his acceptance of improper benefits – he enters Saturday’s game against Ohio State as the starter, with perspective, not ego, dripping from every comment.

Harris back from suspension, will start

The quarterback competition leading up to game week against Ohio State, which had been promised by Coach Al Golden, was cut eerily short just days after Miami’s 32-24 loss against Maryland.

Former players prepare for draft amid NFL uncertainty

It’s a feeling many of us are going through right now. Prospective bosses are pouring over your resume, picking apart your GPA, finding any way to differentiate you from the fresh batch of potential employees vying for the same spot. But for some among us, their resumes are not on paper – they’re on film and on stop watches.

National champions motivate today’s Canes

As this year’s Miami Hurricanes played their final scrimmage of the spring, the future of a new season, coach, and set of expectations took a backseat to recognizing the past. Members of the 2001 national championship team took midfield during halftime to be acknowledged for the 10th anniversary of what some consider to be the greatest Hurricane team of all time. But they were not alone – not by a long shot.

High energy and intensity at second spring scrimmage

If the calendar didn’t read April and the thermostat didn’t feel like 100, the intensity and execution from the Miami Hurricanes football team made it feel a lot like fall.
