Gonna keep it short on this fine Friday morning. Here goes:
Carolina on my mind
North Carolina is coming to HRS to face the Canes on Saturday afternoon. The Tar Heels won the 2015 installment of this matchup 59-21, so there’s a measure of payback needed, and needed soon.
Here’s a look at some of the things UNC will run vs Miami, from our resident coach Justin Dottavio aka Ironman Football:

We’ll get into the picks and predictions later, but between those 3 things, and the articles I linked from yesterday, I’m ready to hit the field already.
Mark Richt Show
Yes, Mark Richt has a TV show weekly. Here’s Daniel Tummeley’s recap of the show, and you can watch the full video right below:
Alternate Legend of the U jerseys coming eventually?
Y’all know I love me some jerseys! And, to that end, I feel duty bound to pass along this report by Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post, wherein Mark Richt says alternate jerseys could be coming in the future:
Miami Hurricanes could get green, black alternate uniforms 'down the road' https://t.co/31Sm0vYqLU pic.twitter.com/uHKgxspiHr— Matt Porter (@mattyports) October 13, 2016
When he was at Georgia, Richt went with black alternates a couple times. I think it averaged out to less than 1 time a year. Other than that? Traditional uniforms.
I love the updated uniform design. I love the throwback feel. And, in due time, I’m sure I’ll love the alternates as well.
Time to finish strong
Mike Pinckney was named one of Pro Football Focus’ top True Freshmen in CFB yet again. He’s up to 9th from 10th nationally last week.

After having their game against LSU rescheduled, UF AD Jeremy Foley said “UF never runs from, or dodges anybody”. LMAOOOOOOOO. I knew UF was a joke, but I didn’t know Foley was their lead comedian.
The 1980s and 1990s Miami Hurricanes might disagree. https://t.co/ZRKFi8jaBd— Corey Clark/TDO.com (@Corey_Clark) October 13, 2016
LMAOOOOOO Jeremy Foley got jokes. Scared ass UF. https://t.co/aaAx0IVZcM— StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) October 13, 2016
UF is a bunch of losers. hahahahahaha He really said that with a straight face.
I’ll transition from that laughable bullshit statement to remind you that if you missed yesterday’s news and notes, they’re just a click away
