It ended OK, OK?
A season of turmoil ended with a football team that wasn’t terrible, with a quarterback who was pretty good, and with a new coach who looks promising for the Miami Hurricanes.
It wasn’t the prettiest season for Miami, what with giving up 59 points to North Carolina and 58 to Clemson, with coach Al Golden being fired, with the controversy of a last-second kickoff return against Duke. In the end, however, Miami was a bowl team, and its 8-4 record and Sun Bowl trip weren’t awful.
Leading the Canes was quarterback Brad Kaaya and running back Joe Yearby, who performed well on the field, who led Miami to four wins in its last five games.
Above it, however, there were airplanes pulling banners urging Golden’s dismissal. In the end, they got what they wanted.
If there is a single take-away for Miami, it is that it brought home former quarterback Mark Richt to be the coach. Richt, known as a good recruiter, could finally get the Canes to an ACC title game.
If not, there are always airplanes available for rent.
