the Uth is back

Posted on: September 25, 2009

For the past several years The University of Miami football team has been everything but the power house they were in the early 2000’s. Since there last national championship appearance in 2001 which they won, Miami got rid of Larry Coker who led Miami to multiple ACC titles and won a National Championship. Since the 2001 championship, Miami has lost the 2002 national championship game as well as the 2003 Fiesta Bowl. They hired a new coach, Randy Shannon, as well as switched stadiums. Perhaps, the new field and new coach changed there luck. After a tough two years under Shannon, this year “da U” is back. With hands down the toughest overall toughest schedule that include ranked opponents such as: Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma. With many questions about their young offense and inexperienced defense, Miami could have been in real trouble if sophomore quarterback Jacory Harris and the young receiving core hadn’t put up 300 yards or more of total offense in the first two games. Another true test comes next for the Canes as they rely on their youthful team to lead them to victory.
