“Fredrick Eaford was quick to make it clear the Miami Hurricanes were his dream team to commit to. After he dominated the 7-on-7 tournament Sunday at a Manny Diaz Football Camp, Eaford picked up his first offer from the hometown team and announced it by professing his love for Miami. Two days later, the Hialeah wide receiver is joining the Hurricanes’ Class of 2021.”
“The Windy City Flyer, Devin Hester makes another appearance on this list, and again, it won’t be the last one either, not even close. When you’re as electrifying as Hester was at Miami, it’s a given that you’ll see a lot of him on a list like this.
This particular plays comes in the 2004 season, Hester’s sophomore year for the Hurricanes. On a chilly night in Raleigh, North Carolina, and in front of a frenzy home crowd for NC State, the Canes and the Wolfpack were set to due battle.
Miami was set to receive the opening kickoff, with Hester back deep to return.”
“When it was announced in January that Manny Diaz edged out Nick Saban and Kirby Smart for the services of then-University of Alabama Quarterbacks Coach Dan Enos, fans of the University of Miami were ecstatic.
In the minds of many Orange-and-Green-clad diehards, the addition of Enos would rectify the three prevailing criticisms of former head coach Mark Richt: His antiquated playbook, predictable play calling and inexperience on the offensive staff.”
“As far as I’m aware, the Miami Hurricanes football team has never quite had a dual-threat at the quarterback position, someone who could seriously hurt you with their arms and legs. I mean let’s be honest, Ken Dorsey wasn’t going to the guy that could escape a breaking-down pocket and scramble for 20-30 yards. Jacory Harris and Malik Rosier could move a little bit, but defensive coordinators weren’t up the week prior worrying about those QB’s running all over them.
Now, UM has two of those guys on their roster, Tate Martell and N’Kosi Perry, and their abilities to throw and run will help them and the Canes immensely in 2019.”
“So last year, we did a countdown of the top five Hurricanes at each position, though we only ranked them based off their accomplishments while at Miami. This summer, we’re again doing a countdown of top five Hurricanes at each position, though this time we’re judging them off their accomplishments in the NFL.
Today, we’re looking at the best from the heart of every defense, the linebackers.”
“Just this past weekend, for the first time in years, I rewatched game between Miami and Florida State, Labor Day, 2009, season opener. We all know this as the “Jacory Harris Game.” You probably didn’t call it that, I just made it up.”
