Found September 08, 2013 on CaneInsider:
After hanging out in the “others receiving votes” category for the pre-season and the first two weeks of the college football season, the Miami Hurricanes went from being the first team not ranked to a No. 15 ranking after beating the Florida Gators who were previously ranked No. 12. Head coach Al Golden said this afternoon on a conference call with the Hurricane beat writers that the team had “closed the book on Florida,” indicating that he knows his season isn’t over just because his program notched a big win.  Golden described the win over the gators as “cathartic,” suggesting that 26 games of uncertainty with the NCAA investigation (whose findings should be released soon), negative recruiting as a result of that and just a whirlwind of suspensions and player issues had all been wiped clean by such a big win. The Associated Press was obviously impressed.  Voters gave Miami 615 votes moving them up from No. 26 to No. 15 in their rankings.  The Hurricanes who were ranked No. 24 in the USA Today coaches poll last week are now ranked No. 18. After a hard fought, physical contest on Saturday, the Hurricanes get some much needed rest as they enjoy a bye week and come back on the 21st of September to play Savannah State of the MEAC again at home at Sun Life Stadium.
