It won’t always be this easy. It won’t always be this lopsided.
But for one night, Mark Richt was home, and the domination was back. For a University of Miami fan, that’s all the analysis that anyone needs.
Oh, it was only against FAMU, and the hard times might not be over. But Miami scored 70 in a 70-3 win over the Rattlers. The Hurricanes scored 10 times on their first 12 possessions. Miami did not score in the fourth quarter.
Three running backs – Joe Yearby, Mark Walton and Gus Edwards – all ran for more than 100 yards. Quarterback Brad Kaaya threw for four touchdowns.
Miami outgained FAMU 523-197, including a 373-22 edge on the ground.
“I’ll just say this: I really, really like it here,” said Richt, a 1982 Miami grad. “I like these players. I like this university. I like the vibe of the city. I’m very thankful to be here.”
Miami is home next week against Florida Atlantic.
