For the first time in 2021, it’s a Miami Hurricanes game day!
Here are some things to get your day started the right day as we push towards kickoff at 3:30pm against the defending National Champions: the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Welcome to Atlanta

Longtime Atlanta resident, radio personality, and SOTU contributor John Michaels penned this welcome guide for everyone going up to the A for the game. Check it out!
The Only Game Preview You Need
If you didn’t check it out earlier this summer, Jake Marcus wrote an INCREDIBLE 3-part look ahead to the Miami-Alabama season opener. So, it stood to reason that we had him leverage that collection of information to write our Game Preview for this week. It’s comprehensive like you wouldn’t believe. Read it; you’ll thank me later.
