Last year, Miami ended the season with a thud, losing to NCST 38-28 on a cold, gloomy day in North Carolina in November. I know, I was there (seen above). This year the Hurricanes hope to finish strong and set up an exciting bowl game as a stepping stone to 2010 and the resurrection of their National Championship dreams.
For this game against Wake Forest, I just hope that the Canes do not jump offsides, forget their formations, run out of bounds when they shouldn’t, and have time outs left in the last 2 minutes of the game. Most importantly DO NOT forget the cheap shot of Joe Birdsong:
In the spirit of Halloween listen to the commentator of last year’s game as evidenced in these highlights: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrcHTXApdU4
Or just watch without the volume.
