The Miami Hurricanes football season-opener against Florida Atlantic is quickly approaching and ‘Canes head coach Al Golden has two more weeks to prepare for the Owls.
Star players are expected to step up and hold their starting spot while some returning backups and incoming freshmen are beginning to demand the attention of Miami’s coaches.
Last week, Golden told reporters (h/t Matt Porter, Palm Beach Post) his players have “six days left to establish whether or not (they) are gonna be coming out of the smoke. The first game is a big deal.”
With the second scrimmage taking place on Friday, August 16, and the depth chart for season opener subsequently being set, starting positions will soon be locked in.
But before that happens, which players shined in practice, and who suffered a setback over the past week?
