Al Golden: still looking for answers
Al Golden: still looking for answers

In case you missed it, and you probably didn't. Miami played their worst game of the year and lost to a bad Virginia tam 30-13 on Saturday night.

In the wake of that disaster, Al Golden joined Joe Rose for his weekly radio spot. I tweeted thru it. The tweets are below.
