Now that Miami has landed quarterback Tate Martell, it’s time to start building up the offensive line. Yes, Manny Diaz and the Hurricanes hit two home-runs Tuesday with Jeff Thomas announcing he’s coming back, and also quarterback Tate Martell making it official that he’s transferring to UM. A great night indeed, and we still have yet to hear from Jalen Hurts.

Ranking 2019’s Grad Transfer QBs

A lot of QBs are looking for a chance of scenery - so who should Miami go after? There’s no doubting that Coach Manny Diaz has dipped his toe into the grad transfer waters when it comes to looking for Miami’s next QB. While that decision may come with some potential collateral damage, Jarren Williams already nearly transferred once, Diaz may be ready to hand the reigns to someone else based on what he has seen thus far as the defensive coordinator. Here are some of the transfers who are on the move this offseason, their ranking based upon who would best be able to captain the new Dan...

Miami Hurricanes 2018 Season Review: CB Postion Recap

Miami Hurricanes 2018 Season Review: CB Postion Recap

In 2018, the defense was elite and a large part of that was because of the cornerbacks. In the 2018 regular season, the Miami Hurricanes were one of the top defenses in college football. Allowing just 268 yards and 18 points per game, the Hurricanes ranked in the top five for a majority of major statistical categories. While all parts of the defense played a role in the elite Miami Hurricanes defense, a huge impact was done by the cornerbacks. With a starting cornerback depth chart of senior Michael Jackson, Trajan Bandy, Jhavonte Dean and DJ Ivey, the Miami Hurricanes defense allowed a...

Miami Hurricanes News and Notes — Miami’s hosting their second quarterback of the week. His commitment would be another home run for Manny Diaz.

Manny Diaz is trying to get the trio of Gorman boys back together and landing a commitment can't be ruled out. The Hurricanes are key contenders for not one, but two quarterback transfers from power house programs. Jalen Hurts, the Alabama transfer, visited on Sunday where he was courted around the city of Miami. His stops included Prime 112 and Club LIV with some other Hurricanes football players. They even received bottle service with a special “U” logo entrance. Safe to say the Hurricanes aren’t messing around when it comes to showing recruits what this city has to offer. There...

Film Room: Dan Enos offense- Arkansas versus Auburn 2015

A 4 OT thriller worth of talking points Dan Enos arrived at Arkansas as the offensive coordinator after a five year stint as the head football coach at Central Michigan. Before Enos arrived, the Razorbacks had the 22nd ranked offense per the S&P+. By the end of the 2015 season they were ranked 4th overall on that side of the football. Enos took the position knowing full well Bret “Borderline Erotic” Bielema wanted to run the same ground-and-pound offense he had at Wisconsin, and that Alabama had built their dynasty upon in Tuscaloosa. Enos took advantage of pro style looks and tight...

Collectively, they have led this Hurricanes defense for the past three years and will be sticking around for one more shot to finish their career out successfully. This past season was a special year for the...
