Miami is the most underrated team in college football

Miami has its flaws. Not the city. The city has beaches, great food, and no winter. But the University of Miami football team, which hasn’t been ranked in the preseason Amway Coaches Poll since 2010, has been left out yet again. But this year, it’s a head scratcher. Since Al Golden’s arrival, the Hurricanes have admirably overcome tough NCAA sanctions that hit the program...

Morris excited for his Miami QB finale

Stephen Morris will leave Miami ranking among its all-time passing leaders in completions, attempts and yards. He's also leaving with a degree, which makes him particularly proud.

After two-year absence, Miami thrilled to be bowling

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Though a trip to the Russell Athletic Bowl takes just 240 miles north along Florida's Turnpike it doesn't do justice to how far the University of Miami football program has come the past 30 months.

Stephen Morris’s Gunslinger Mentality Leads to Wow Throws, Poor Decisions vs. Florida State

With arguably the most impressive arm strength in the 2014 draft class, evaluators were obviously going to flock to Morris and assume the best for his senior season. With a quick trigger, tightly spun ball, and flashes of the necessary “wow” throws needed to be a high draft pick, Morris was pegged as one who could rise to the first round if he built upon an impressive junior...
