Even though we all were not able to be there in person it is apparent that the spirit and presence of Canespace was alive and well in Chicago.
Several Canespacers such as PBCFR13, Hassan and Mia Chi Cane 98 made the trip North to Soldier Field, enjoyed the relatively cool weather and even took some photos just to prove it.
Here is their photo essay of the events leading up to the game including some unexpected meet and greet opportunities at the team hotel:
At the game inside the beautiful Soldier Field stadium:
And even one fan who stayed around after the brutal contest and meet the players getting on the bus for the short trip to the airport and long plane ride back to the 305.
In case you were wondering nobody was happy after the game in the UM lockeroom. Miami players and coaches share the same pain that Hurricane fans felt after the very difficult and somewhat depressing game against Notre Dame in Chicago.
According to various reports from several sources WR Phillip Dorsett was nearly in tears, RB Mike James wants to run the ball more and UM Defensive Coordinator Mark D'Onofrio just wanted out of Chicago.
Here is UM head coach Al Golden after the game explaining what went wrong:
But hope lives in the land of orange and green and things will get better as Miami returns to Sun Life Stadium to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels this Saturday.
We ask you to please remember the Canespace rules of engagement:
Rule #1: U gotta show up.
Rule #2: When in doubt see rule #1.
GO CANES, BEAT UNC!!!
