Yesterday, my Canes suffered a heartbreaking defeat. The most painful part is that with all the talent and speed, they totally fizzled out late. The game was in hand at 24-14 with 9 minutes to play when the coverage bust led to a 74 yard UNC touchdown. Following up the breakdown, Miami went conservative and UNC drove down the field once again to score a TD and take the lead 28-24. With 10 seconds, North Carolina safety Trimane Goddard intercepted a pass intended for Kayne Farquharson. He had the ball in his hands in the endzone. All he has to do is come down with the ball and game over, Miami wins.
Chalk this one up to inexperience. It’s also painful for Butch the turn coat Davis to come into our house and beat us.
