I made the 5 1/2 hour drive down for my first game of the Mario era to watch the Canes take on Southern Miss. It was a great day for me Saturday, I tried Cafecito for the first time, sat in the club level and hung out with some good friends. The Miami Hurricanes came out of the gate sleepy and flat like the crowd at Hard Rock. The Boos and Boys started shortly there after.
Second half adjustments were made and Miami pulled out the win 30-7. The fanbase has been going crazy with overreactions and I’m guilty of the same thing but we are 2-0. Imagine what Texas A&M and Notre Shame fans are feeling right now, yikes. Anyway here are my BOYS (things I liked) and BOOS (things I didn’t like) in week two.
Henry Parrish Jr. is a dude (AGAIN). Picking up where he left off last week, Parrish rushed for 23 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown. Through two games Parrish Jr. is averaging 7.2 yards a carry.
The Rush defense. All we heard this past week was Frank Gore Jr. and that Southern Miss rushing attack, Well.. it was non existent. Much respect for Gore Jr. and I hope he has a great career but the Canes shut him down Saturday. Southern Miss 33 total rushing yards. 29 for the Zach Wilcke the QB and only 10 yards rushing for Gore Jr. Then you add in the negative plays and boom.. 33 rushing yards, how can you complain about that.
Corey Flagg was all over the field yesterday and led the team in tackles with 6 and had 1.5 TFL. Is Flagg turning the corner? it remains to be seen, but it was refreshing to see.
The Stache. Having a good kicker is so important. Andy Borregales went 3/3 on field goals Saturday. He was good from 30 yards, 33 yards and 48 yards.
