Twelve years of mediocrity.
A defense with more holes than Swiss cheese.
An offense that could not convert third downs or in the red zone.
Special teams that were anything but special.
Weather delays at home games that seemed to go on forever.
Miami Hurricanes fans have had to endure quite a bit of turmoil, loss, disappointment and uncertainty over the last decade. Then once again, in the middle of last season, it became evident that it was clearly time for a change.
That change started with hiring of new UM football head coach Mark Richt.
Richt brings with him his own version of a "hope and change" agenda to the University of Miami to start the 2016 college football season. That agenda contains items such as a more efficient offense, a more aggressive defense and a new look stadium now known as Hard Rock Stadium.
Now it is our turn as Miami Hurricanes fans to show up and show our pride and confidence in the new head coach, the newly renovated stadium and a new team to cheer for in 2016.
We will see you at the game this Saturday at "The Rock" and at every other opportunity we get along the way during this 2016 college football season.
And to be perfectly honest, WE CAN'T WAIT!
