Happy Sunday, everybody! Let’s recap last night, shall we?
Miami Hurricanes rally, beats #18 NC State Wolfpack 31-30
I mean, this was the only way things could have gone, right? With an embattled coach whose job status gets more tenuous by the day, an athletic director directing one of the most ludicrous and worst public relations campaigns ever seen, a 323 day losing streak to P5 teams, and a team that was reeling at 2-4....of COURSE the Canes would rally and find a way to beat NC State on Saturday night.
And that’s exactly what they did.
Here’s our game recap
The 3 stars who led the way to a Miami victory
and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Let’s take a look at the video tape...
What’s left to do after a game? Look at the key plays and themes from the night and dissect why and how Miami did what they did. Luckily for you (and us), we have multiple people who lend their keen eye to the film to break it down. So feast your eyes on both Justin Dottavio’s film review. Frank Marciante’s Student of the Game breakdown video will be up later this week.

Underdogs yet again
At just 3-4 (but better than the 2-4 they were heading into last weekend), Miami is still not performing to the level of expectations. With that being the case, and with Pittsburgh being the class of the conference to this point of the year, it should come as no surprise that Miami is a heavy underdog on the road this week at Pitt.
#Canes open as 11pt underdogs at Pitt next Saturday per @DKSportsbook— StateOfTheU.com (@TheStateOfTheU) October 24, 2021
11 points is a BIG number, even for a team with 4 losses to this point of the season. We’ll see what happens.
That’s it for today Make it a marvelous Monday!
