Welcome back. Here are your news and notes for September 7th:
Canes ranked 25th in the AP Poll
Following the 70-3 destruction of Florida A&M, the Miami Hurricanes are ranked 25th by the Associated Press.
If you’re thinking this is the first time Miami has been ranked in a while, you’re right. According to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald, this is the first time the Canes have been ranked since November 16th, 2013, when they were 23rd.
Obviously, this is a nice achievement for a program that has not performed to the level we would have liked in recent years, but it’s an inconsequential footnote right now. There are much bigger goals for this team this year.
Oh Captain, my Captain
Miami will apparently be rotating captains on a game-by-game basis this season. Your captains for the FAU game are Braxton Berrios, Corn Elder, Rayshawn Jenkins, and Nick Linder.
Mark Richt Remembers
In case you missed the memo, Mark Richt is a Miami Alum (word to Dan and Ty of the Solid Verbal. POINTS!!) Anyways, Richt played here with a lot of great QBs, several of whom had long NFL careers and one is a Hall of Famer. Richt recounted part of his time in Miami with Seth Davis on his podcast for Campus Insiders. Check it out.
There’s an FAU fan who says that the Owls will undoubtedly beat Miami on Saturday. So, that’s fun.
Want a HL video of our three headed monster at RB each rushing for 100 yards vs FAMU? Intrepid twitter user @ThatCaneZo has you covered (and you should follow him. His twitter videos are invariably amazing)
Our Daniel Tummeley says that the Canes’ new offense is a force to be reckoned with.
Coach Richt had his first media availability ahead of the FAU game. You can check out the full transcript here.
You wanted another photo gallery, and SOTU photographer Mike Seay gave you another photo gallery.
Ricky P gave you a new installment of ACC Power rankings ahead of week 2. #blessed
Get prepared to be a savvy fan with this installment of Clinic Talk looking at the FAU game. Outside Zone. Oh yeah.
If you missed Craig T. Smith’s Monday Musings, you should probably rectify that oversight by clicking this link, fam.
That’s it for today. Make it a great day, Canes fam!
