There’s nothing like a good blowout to give you a clean fresh start. After the Hurricanes destroyed Savannah State 77-0 on Saturday night

The brawl was a crucial hit to both schools with 8 players ejected from Miami, 31 players from Miami and FIU being suspended, and Larry Coker eventually getting fired at the end of the 2006 season. The game’s scheduled time was announce for the
