We heard it from North Carolina who, heard it from Georgia Tech who, heard it from FSU that "The U" been messing around.
Cat and mouse. Rope A Dope. Smoke and mirrors.
Bait and switch. Hook and ladder. Doom and deception.
Apparently these are just some of the many tricks that your Miami Hurricanes have up their very long and silky sleeves.
On a absolutely delicious South Florida November morning at Hard Rock Stadium, we arrived early to get our "game" on.
We arrived believing that Miami would face Virginia in another easy ACC game on their way to possibly another shot at a National Championship.
The sun was soft, the breeze was light and the fans were exuding some serious swag and some major confidence during the tailgate.
The Stadium looked perfectly nice, safe and calm in the early morning light.
Little did we know that under the palms and bushes and bleachers that Miami would wind up just messing around with heavy underdog Virginia until it seemed that it was almost too late.
How else do you explain the Hurricanes allowing the Cavaliers to go up by 14 points not once but twice during the game? Just setting something up of course!
That was precisely when we realized that UM head Coach Mark Richt has just been messing around with college football in general and Miami fans in specific.
It was at this very game that we figured out the Richt has this all figured out without a doubt. Only time will tell but I now think that he has this season right where he wants it. And he thinks that only he knows it.
Oh, I almost forgot, Miami beat Virginia convincingly by the score of 44-28.
And listen up Coach Richt. The Miami fans are on to your wild scheme.
We know that this game wasn't even close. Do you want to know why?
We heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another that you been messing around.
