The Miami Hurricanes finished a meager ninth in the ACC conference last year with 162 yards rushing a game. What is further concerning, in wins the Hurricanes averaged 183 yards on the ground. In losses, the Hurricanes averaged an anemic 106.
That is a big difference which seemed to manifest itself when you visited Death Valley, Clemson. 42-17 and the Miami run game was half of its former self. Literally. In August and September Miami rushed for 246 yards a game and come October time the Tigers caught you by the toe. October’s rush total in games was that same ironic 106 yards a game.
