Hurricanes All-Star Lineup of the Jim Morris Era

A look back at the stars of Jim Morris’ 24 seasons at Miami Jim Morris’ final regular season in Coral Gables came to a close Saturday, May 19th against the Boston College Eagles. Miami has advanced to the ACC Tournament but at just two games above .500 overall, the Hurricanes need a some more wins to make it any farther in the postseason. John Reynolds and I are going to take a look back over the past twenty-four seasons of Morris in orange and green. Morris came to Miami in 1994 after the firing of Brad Kelley. Morris has coached a number of All-Americans, the number one overall MLB...

Do the Canes Need a True Offensive Coordinator?

Do the Canes Need a True Offensive Coordinator?

Head Coach Mark Richt has elevated this program, and brought it back to relevance; but there remain area(s) for improvement. Canes fans have witnessed legendary offensive play makers on the field, including recent years. Duke Johnson, and David Njoku are a couple that come to mind, with Njoku being a first-round pick; and Johnson, who became the ‘Canes leading rusher in career yards. Last season, the Canes won 4 games by 8 points or less. The important part is that these games were won, but not in the fashion that many would’ve liked to see. A 5-point victory over a Tarheel squad that...

Jim Morris Honored, but Game Cancelled

Jim Morris Honored, but Game Cancelled

Miami honored the legendary coach, but couldn’t get the game in Saturday. Jim Morris’ final home game ended without a final score. In the bottom of the third the game was stopped for rain, and even though it appeared that the game would start again, the rain returned, preventing Miami and Boston College from finishing the third game of their series. The Hurricanes had gone down by four runs early, but had put up three runs in the bottom of the third before the game was halted. Ray Gil would’ve come to the plate with two men on and two outs had the game been able to restart. However,...

Ten Players Miami Will Game Plan For In 2018

Ten Players Miami Will Game Plan For In 2018

Miami’s biggest individual challenges coming in 2018 10. RB KirVonte Benson – Georgia Tech Photo by Grant Halverson/ KirVonte Benson is a key component to a potent Georgia Tech option attack that gives everybody headaches. All the motion, chop-blocks and misdirection for four quarters drives fans and defensive coordinators wild. As a freshman in 2017, Benson ran the ball 204 times for 1053 yards – good for 5.2 yards per carry. Against Miami, Benson ran the ball just 7 times for 40 yards, but you never know when the Yellow Jacket offense can pop off. Going into...

Five Hurricanes That Are Ready for the Spotlight in 2018

Five Hurricanes That Are Ready for the Spotlight in 2018

While Ahmmon Richards, Jaquan Johnson and Shaq Quarterman receive national attention, SOTU examines a group of players that should make a favourable impression this season When you say that you weren’t expecting a performance like that from a player, it usually means that you had low or no expectations for them to begin with. That’s fair—there are only so many days in a year, a ton of guys on the roster and many headlines you can follow when the season kicks off. So when Darrell Langham brings in a Malik Rosier pass against some FSU defender in the final moments of a rivalry game in...

Miami 4, Boston College 3: Ten Straight

Miami 4, Boston College 3: Ten Straight

The Hurricanes got another great start to get their tenth straight win. The Miami Hurricanes are 27-25 (16-13 ACC) after their tenth consecutive win. This game was sloppily played by Miami, but a strong performance from Evan McKendry and some timely hitting gave the ‘Canes another huge win on Senior Day. The win sets up a chance for Miami to sweep tomorrow, and if they do that and have a strong performance in the ACC Tournament, an at-large bid is still on the table for Miami. The ‘Canes have gone on an incredible run over the last few weeks, and no matter the outcome tomorrow, it’s...

Game Times Announced for 2018 Early Season UM/ACC Battles

Mark your calendars now! On Friday Morning, the ACC today announced some early season game times. The Miami Hurricanes will get plenty of National and Prime Time exposure, which makes sense for a team coming off a 10-3 season and an ACC Coastal Division Championship.

That game will be played in primetime on 9/2, with kickoff at 7:30pm Eastern as previously announced. The game will be nationally televised on ABC.

Miami 3, Boston College 0: Pitching Paves the Way

Jeb Bargfeldt pitched another great game for the Hurricanes Thursday. The Miami Hurricanes are 26-25 (15-13 ACC) after their ninth consecutive win. Jeb Bargfeldt dealt a complete game shutout in what will be his last home start in college baseball. The senior allowed just two hits and no walks over his nine innings pitched, and he had the Eagles off balance all night. At the plate the Hurricanes got off to a quick start. In the bottom of the first Freddy Zamora reached to start off the inning. He scored quickly after Tony Jenkins knocked a double to right, scoring Zamora from first. Romy...

Five opposing quarterbacks the ‘Canes gave nightmares to

Five opposing quarterbacks the ‘Canes gave nightmares to

Miami ruined the nights of many QB’s over the ‘Canes history The Miami Hurricanes have rolled out some of college football’s nastiest defenses over the course of many decades. Since Manny Diaz arrived on campus in 2016, the ‘Canes have 33 sacks in 2016 and in 45 2017. Even after losing Kendrick Norton, RJ McIntosh, Trent Harris and Chad Thomas to the NFL, the ‘Canes still expect to get after quarterbacks on every down. The Hurricanes have Joe Jackson, Demetrius Jackson, Scott Patchan, Gerald Willis and Pat Bethel to provide a pass rush without having to blitz linebackers or...

Potential Disaster Games For Miami In 2018

Potential Disaster Games For Miami In 2018

The Canes need be aware of these teams in 2018. Hey everyone, the secret is out, the Canes are supposed to be really good this year. After a 10-3 record in 2017, Miami has huge expectations to be even better this fall. However, there are always, always those teams that love to sneak up on the Hurricanes. For this article, I'm not going to include teams like LSU, FSU or Virginia Tech. Why? Because those are really good teams, and Miami could go into those games as potential underdogs, depending on the situation. However, lets take a look at the sleepers on Miami’s schedule. 1. North...

Miami Hurricanes Football: OL Tre Johnson leaving Canes’ program

More attrition On Wednesday afternoon, redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Tre Johnson announced that he would be leaving the University of Miami and the Canes Football program. It’s official that I will be leaving the university of Miami— tre johnson (@trej567) May 16, 2018 A little used lineman, Johnson came to Miami with great height and weight at 6’7’ 305lbs but lacking in functional strength and needing refinement to his blocking skills. Over the course of 2 years at Miami, Johnson was unable to earn his way onto the field for the Canes, and it looked as though that...
