9/7/2007 Has anything really changed in Miami sports?
I came back home last week after a year away. I was a journalism fellow at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, a beguiling city that is the opposite of Miami. Winters are cold and gray; people are smart and friendly; and the area's teams -- with the exception of the Detroit Lions and the Wolverines' debacle against Appalachian State -- are stellar and beloved.

9/5/2007 Were the `Canes Really Holding Back?
I had an interesting conversation after Wednesday's practice with wide receiver Darnell Jenkins. There has been discussion on Internet message boards that the Hurricanes held back with the playbook against Marshall, so Oklahoma couldn't see the entire offense.

9/4/2007 Do The `Canes Have A Chance at OU?
The questions at today's press conference were mostly about if the Hurricanes felt they had a chance Saturday against Oklahoma.

9/2/2007 Hurricanes' backfield duo excels
