Last season did not exactly go as planned for the Miami Hurricanes, as they struggled to a 7-6 record and fired coach Randy Shannon in what was supposed to be the year when they reclaimed their place at the top of college football.
The Hurricanes were done in by erratic quarterback play from Jacory Harris, Stephen Morris and Spencer Whipple, and were thoroughly embarrassed on their home field by Florida State.
Enter former Temple Owls coach Al Golden, who quickly established a rapport with former Hurricanes players and declared the U the most recognizable brand in college football. Golden brings with him a commitment to defense, discipline and protecting the football.
Golden, and Canes fans both expect big things from this team this year.
