The Miami Hurricanes sputtered to a 7-6 record last year, and a lot of the blame for that can be laid at the feet of their 67th-ranked scoring offense.
The quarterbacks were plagued by turnovers, none of the running backs ran for even 900 yards, and the wide receivers dropped entirely too many passes.
The bad season spurred a change in the head coach and offensive coordinator positions, so gone are Randy Shannon and Mark Whipple. Newcomers Al Golden and Jed Fisch will try to straighten out the once-mighty Hurricanes offense.
The Canes of old were always built solidly along the offensive line, and that laid the foundation which allowed the plethora of skill players Miami has produced to flourish.
The team's leading receiver and rusher have graduated and moved on, but the Canes still have plenty of talent waiting in the wings. They'll feature a two-headed rushing attack this year as well as a deep receiving corps.
However, if any of these players are to succeed and break out in a big way, the offensive line will have to open holes and protect the quarterback.
