The worst loss in the 90 year history of the Miami Hurricanes football program.

I wrote a 1st half recap which talked about the way in which Clemson sprinted to a 42-0 lead.

I hoped the 2nd half would go better.

It did not.

The Defense couldn't stop Clemson. Their THIRD STRING QUARTERBACK ran untouched for 2 TDs, one covering 59 yards, the other 8 yards.

Malik Rosier struggled in place of Brad Kaaya, who left the game in the first half after reportedly failing concussion protocol testing.

Rashawn Scott got hurt after taking a big hit late in the game. He eventually got up, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

And, because Miami was losing 45-0 after 3 quarters, the induction of former Canes greats like Santana Moss, Leon Searcy, Willis McGahee, and Reggie Wayne into the UM Sports Hall of Fame was more a look back into the days of glory gone by than the celebration that it was designed to be during the biggest Canes home game of the year.

In the end, Clemson beat Miami 58 to 0. That is the worst loss in the 90 year history of the Miami Hurricanes football program. And, to add insult to (multiple) injuries, Athletic Director Blake James said nothing is going to change:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Miami AD Blake James tells me no coaching change coming after game. Called it , &quot;disappointing,&quot; but, &quot;We&#39;ll go and get ready to play Duke.&quot;</p>&mdash; Dave Hyde (@davehydesports) <a href="https://twitter.com/davehydesports/status/658002068578418689">October 24, 2015</a></blockquote>

So, not only did we lose Brad Kaaya for the game, not only did Rashawn Scott get hurt in the 4th quarter of a game already WELL decided, not ONLY did we suffer the worst loss in program history, but the Athletic Director says that things will continue without alteration.

And that, friends, is how you anger a fan base after taking a terrible loss.

But hey, there's still the Coastal, right?
