Hurricanes are reeling, and the honeymoon is over
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Miami is on a two-game losing streak, plus has some major injury problems, a disgruntled fan base and quite possibly a quarterback controversy.
The honeymoon for the Hurricanes is officially over.
Miami’s 45-31 loss to Middle Tennessee State on Saturday did more than knock the Hurricanes (2-2) out of the Top 25. It showed that the offense is continuing to sputter and the defense is suddenly susceptible to big plays. It also brought out more booing from those who showed up for the game — there weren’t many — and left everybody afterward reaching for answers.
“We’ve got a long ways to go,” Miami coach Mario Cristobal said. “I knew we had a long ways to go upon arrival, but the progress that we had made in some respects, I feel like certainly we’ve regressed. And we’ve got to do a better job.”
