Or so they say.
This is either a good thing or a bad thing:
Miami's 448 total yards of offense today were the most for the `Canes this season and the most since recording 496 yards against Duke last year in Miami.

More after the jump.
Spence adds on:
"He did a great job. I knew all week when he was getting his reps in practice behind Colin that he was going to be prepared," LB Sean Spence said of Cain, who wasn’t made available for comment after the game. "He stepped in and filled some big shoes."
Spence said Cain wasn’t nervous at all and looked "calm" on the field.
"He felt like one of the guys. He was out there slapping me around," Spence said. "I wasn’t expecting that."
It was also the first game since the opening game against FAMU in which Jacory didn't throw an interception. Whether he actually played well is another question, one that Manny tried to answer by charting every single one of his passes. His results:
The defense played one of the best games of the season, at the very least from a turnover standpoint:
The Hurricanes recorded five interceptions today, bringing their season total to 12 through six games. Last year the `Canes finished with nine in 13 games. A week after recording his first career interception against Florida State, sophomore safety Vaughn Telemaque picked off two more passes in the first half today's game. DeMarcus Van Dyke tallied his second of the season while defensive tackle Micanor Regis hauled in his third career interception and returned it for 22 yards for a score in the third quarter. Late in the third quarter, Ryan Hill pulled in his third INT of the season.
The last time Miami recorded four interceptions in a game was on Sept. 1, 2007 in a 31-3 win over Marshall.
Here's the gregarious Micanor Regis discussing his interception-turned-touchdown:
