Composure. Confidence. Commitment. Clarity of purpose.
Add in a big scoop of resiliency, then throw in some true grit and determination. When combined together, what does that recipe make?
On Thursday night your Miami Hurricanes refused to quit.
They simply refused to lose.
In spite of what UM QB Stephen Morris called "the worst game of my career" the Hurricanes dug deep, stepped up late and found the will to win. Even four interceptions, several significant injuries, a defiant UNC team and a rambunctious Tar Heel crowd could not derail this team of destiny.
That's right, I said it.
This team that Miami head coach Al Golden has assembled and coached has something special. They have a can't lose attitude that leads them to the simple conclusion that they will not be denied.
And against the Tar Heels, they finally proved it.
In recent years, the Hurricanes would have quit, or folded and probably lost.
This year, this team, in this game, showed some true grit.
We like that. Yeah, we like that a lot.
