Who: Miami Hurricanes vs Maryland Terrapins
When: 8 pm EST / ESPN / ESPN3.com
Where: Byrd Stadium
Why: Because ESPN said so
The wait is finally over. In just about thirty minutes from now, the Canes will open the 2011 season against the Maryland Terrapins. Missing in action will be nine players, most of them solid contributors. Stephen Morris will be under center, hopefully for the entire game. Lamar Miller will be lining up in the backfield. Al Golden will be on the sidelines. He will be wearing a suit. Mark D'Onofrio will be screaming at everyone. Hope abounds. Let us all kneel before our vinyl copies of As Nasty As They Wanna Be.
After the jump you can find a link to both the Miami roster (there will be many new numbers) and the Maryland roster, as well as a link to my short primer on the Terps from earlier today.
I'm not gonna be around my computer for tonight's game, so y'all have fun and keep it cool.
