CONTRIBUTORS WANTED: State of the U is adding to our staff

We’re adding contributors again and there are plenty of opportunities!

NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Wisconsin vs Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Over the course of the last 7+ years, State of the U has become one of the leading sites for Miami Hurricanes commentary and analysis (and the INCREDIBLY RARE breaking news hit, too!).

There are plenty of Canes sites out there, but we are very proud of what we have built and cultivated here at SOTU over the better part of the last decade. Former SOTU contributors now contribute to sites in the 247sports network, Rivals network, local, regional, and national media outlets, and several other Canes websites, as well.

But, with those contributors having departed our coverage teams, it’s time to replenish the contributing group and continue to grow and build what we’ve established here at State of the U.

And to do that, we need you!

We’re looking for motivated individuals to join our contributing group and provide commentary and analysis in one, or multiple areas. What areas are we looking for? Glad you asked!

We are looking to expand our coverage in the following areas:

  • Football Recruiting
  • Football coverage
  • Basketball coverage (including recruiting)
  • Video
  • Podcasting
  • Student corespondent on campus at Miami
  • Social media

All options are on the table. We want your passion for The U to match ours, and for you to let that passion show through your work on the site!

We are looking to first and foremost find good people that are self-starters and work hard, well with others and do not mind being coached. Previous experience is highly preferred, but not required.

If interested, send us a resume, which position(s) you are interested in applying for, and any samples of your work to We look forward to hearing from you and finding the next wave of talent to join our website.

NOTE: We routinely receive a high volume of email submissions for contributor positions. Please be patient as we sift through and find the best candidates for the present and future of State of the U.
