Who can forget 2011? The Miami Hurricanes under the banner flag of Alfonse Golden and his pal Mark D’Onofrio would face off vs. the Maryland Terrapins. That was the game where the turtles wore arguably the worst uniform in the history of College sports. It looked like a designer vomited the Maryland state flag on a piece of paper and said, “Here it is.”
Danny O’Brian made his first start of the season and easily set the college football world on fire. I vividly remember thinking, “Man this kid is damn good. He is playing like a Heisman.” O’Brian torched the Hurricanes for 348 yards that night. Funny thing is, the Terrapin QB would never throw over 300 yards the remainder of the season and ended up throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.
Then go back one week prior. The Southern Miss Golden Eagles were going to unleash their super run offense. The eagles of gold only attempted 13 pass attempts when they faced off vs. Liberty. Enter first time starter Zach Wilcke and Southern Miss did the unthinkable. They came out actually passing the football. It took everyone by surprise including the Miami Hurricane coaching staff.
