Good Morning Canes Familia,
It’s a bittersweet Friday here at State of the U. Last night’s 35-3 in the Pinstripe Bowl marked the final game of the 2018 season for the might Miami Hurricanes. While it’s a long wait from now until August 31st when Miami takes on the Florida Gators, there’s still plenty of events between now and then to keep you going.
ICYMI here’s the fallout from last night’s bowl game.
SOTU’s own Dylan Sherry provided the recap for the game.

Who had a better day than @CanesFootball DB Jaquan Johnson?!!! Rang the bell to open trading on New York Stock Exchange and got a @seniorbowl invite. I’ve been scouting The U a long time and can’t remember a player that coaches rave about more as a teammate or practice player. pic.twitter.com/hBOEWbtjPi— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) December 27, 2018
