An amazing 30 underclassmen, including an astonishing 11 starters, were listed on the latest two-deep depth chart released by Miami head coach Al Golden following the Hurricanes' 42-36 spectacular come-from-behind OT road win at Georgia Tech.
Hassan's favorite Freshman Ereck Flowers has made four consecutive starts at right tackle, while RoachCane's Legend of the Fall selection redshirt Freshman LB Eddie Johnson has started three straight games. Cornbread's favorite Freshman S Deon Bush has started the last two games.
The latest depth chart is without Freshman WR Malcolm Lewis, who suffered a gruesome ankle injury in the game against the Yellow Jackets. The injury was so apparent and severe that it led to UM head coach Al Golden rushing onto the field to hold and comfort Lewis in his time of need.
Here is Golden's interview and comments on the injury after the game:
The move by Golden was a genuinely moving and touching gesture that has gained some national notoriety. But most importantly, we all hope and pray for a speedy recovery for Lewis who was already making an significant impact on the team as a true freshman.
The Hurricanes face North Carolina State this Saturday at noon at Sun Life Stadium (ESPNU).
