Your daily digest of Miami Hurricanes news for November 8th

NCAA Football: Pittsburgh at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Hey guys. Let’s get into it.

Gameday pictures

We’re lucky to have a great photographer here at State of the U: Mike Seay. He was on hand for the Canes’ 51-28 win over Pitt on Saturday. And he took some great pictures, which you can see here:

Great stuff, as per usual, Mike!

Remembering Bryan Pata

10 years ago yesterday, Miami DE Bryan Pata was murdered at his apartment complex a short drive from campus. Like far too many homicides in Miami and around the country, Pata’s case remains unsolved, with no new leads.

Back in 2012, my friend APDirtybird wrote a piece saying he’s sorry for forgetting about Bryan Pata and the search for justice in his case. He sends it out every year, and I am doing the same.

Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post wrote this piece on the 10th year after Pata’s murder.

It’s staggering that there were 4,842 unsolved murders in Miami-Dade county between 1980 and 2010. And, it’s even more staggering that that number has undoubtedly increased since then. Hopefully, one day, those cases will be solved.

Rest in peace, Bryan Pata. We haven’t forgotten.

Quick Hitters

Short post today, but it’s still got the quality you deserve.

Here’s this week’s commit recap from HSFB week 11. Those who are still playing are still ballin’.

Devin Tucker has your weekly ProCanes recap. Yeah, those guys are still ballin’, too.

For the 2nd time in a month, a member of the 2001 Miami Hurricanes has retired from the NFL. First, it was WR Andre Johnson. Now, it’s S Antrel Rolle.

Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post, citing a source, reported that C Nick Linder is out with an injury. Backup Alex Gall, who played the 2nd half vs Pitt, will start in his place this week. Yet another injury added to the list for Miami.

Corn Elder go boom

Ahmmon Richards: Pretty good at football.

Who’s not turning the ball over much? Miami, and a couple other teams. That’s who.

Lastly, this highlight video is too good not to share. 5-star recruit, no doubt in my mind. Hope CMR and staff make him a top priority in this class. We need this guy on our team.
