Today's embarrassing loss at Louisville means the 'Canes are 1-2 and have lost four of their past six games dating to late last season. University of Miami football has become merely pretty good -- and not always even that. The aura, the swagger, the road-warrior edge ... whatever The U once had, seems gone.
Don't mean this blog entry to facilitate an anti-Larry Coker avalanche but his job status is an unavoidable hot topic now, and UM fans have a right to vent.
I still think Coker deserves an opportunity to save his job but it may take running the table from here, or at least finishing no worse than 9-3 followed by a bowl win. Then again Paul Dee may be unwilling to swallow Coker's remaining contract with a huge buyout even if the season turns out worse than that.
What should UM do -- this season and beyond -- to revive the power of Hurricanes football? Is the answer as simple as the head coach?
