Happy Saturday Canes fam.

Last week, former Miami defensive tackle Kendrick Norton was involved in a serious car accident and was listed in critical condition. As a result of the crash, his left arm had to be amputated but Norton has since recovered and is, in his words, “grateful” to be alive. You can check out the hospital-bed interview he had with Miami’s CBS affiliate here.

Let’s get you caught up with some of the Miami stories buzzing around -

Another pre-season film room, this time taking a look at the Virginia Cavaliers. After having been middle of the pack, at best, in the Coastal for several years, transfer QB Bryce Perkins has breathed life into the Cavalier’s offense. They could very well be Miami’s top competition for a Coastal crown in 2019.

Another day, another one of the greatest 100 plays in Miami football history. Today we remember the “Morris Miracle;” Stephen Morris’ touchdown bomb to Phillip Dorsett to lift the Canes to a last-minute win over NC State.
