** Mark Richt kicked off Monday morning by addressing a situation in which quarterback N’Kosi Perry filmed himself holding A LOT of cash. Perry spent a portion of the Hurricanes bye week in his hometown of Ocala where the video was taken.

Richt claims that no NCAA rules were broken nor did anything illegal occur and that Perry will not be suspended for Friday night’s matchup at Boston College. Richt did say he expects more from the quarterback position.

** In more positive news, the Miami Hurricanes basketball program was redacted from indictment in the college basketball trial conducted by the FBI. It is unfortunate that the Hurricanes program was dragged through the mud, which led to them suffering greatly in recruiting the 2018 class.

** The Miami Hurricanes will host the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday November 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

** The Hurricanes are hoping to hear some good news on the recruiting trail Tuesday night as St. Thomas Aquinas star DT Braylen Ingraham announces his college decision. Miami, Oregon and Alabama are the final three, but it is looking like the Tide has the momentum here.

**The Hurricanes have lost two 2020 commits in the last week. South Dade OL Jonathan Denis was the first and tonight Miami lost Miami Columbus DE Elijah Roberts’ commitment. It is the fifth decommitment from 2020 prospects for the Hurricanes.

** True freshman running back Lorenzo Lingard injured his leg in practice Monday. There is not much information other than Miami’s stance that he is being further evaluated.

** If you're looking for an early Boston College preview, our own Dylan Sherry put together a piece on this “trap” game for Miami.
