The past few years for the Miami Hurricanes have been bad, although in 2001 we had our share of great games and a National Title to top it off.
Then things started to go down after the 2003 season. QB Ken Dorsey left the team to go into the NFL Draft, and the Canes started slipping from there.
Brock Berlin in my opinion was one of the best quarterbacks after Ken Dorsey left, and Berlin led us to a few bowl games. I remember watching him in the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl against our rivals, the Florida Gators.
Now Kyle Wright wasn't one of my favorites at all. He had bad timing on his throws and that's one of the reasons why the Canes started to go downhill.
I am not saying that it was all Kyle's fault, but much of the years that Miami was in a slump and unranked was during Wright's era.
A lot of the blame was brought onto Larry Coker just because of how bad Miami's season was going, and I don't blame Miami fans for blaming him for the consecutive losses they received.
After Coker was fired, a new era started for Miami. Randy Shannon took the reins, and now I can say this is the kind of coach we needed all along to lead us back to where Miami once was: in the battle for the National Title.
Although we had some great years during the Coker Era, we are now starting to get back to who we are supposed to be.
