Miami Hurricanes Week 1 @ FSU It was just another rainy day in Florida, except for today is the day when little kids smile, lost puppies come home, and grown men run full force into each other for nothing but the glory of the game. This day is opening of college football and what better way to kick things of than a healthy dose of Miami and Florida St. Gameday was on campus to view yet another instant classic in the historic rivalry. Miami opened up the scoring as quarterback Jacory Harris connected on a 15 yard touch down pass to Leonard Hankerson. The Tallahasee crowd didn't stay quiet for long as Florida St returnman Taiwan Easterling took the ensuing kickoff 89 yards up the right sideline to tie the game at 7-7. After Miamis offense stalled FSU halfback Jermaine Thomas took over, running through and around Hurricane defenders eventually reaching the end zone on a 6 yard run. After a Miami field goal and FSU touchdown the Hurricanes gained possession with less than a minute in the half trailing 21-10. The Canes came out five wide and utilized the no huddle to perfection setting up a 6 yard touchdown pass to impact wide receiver Adalius Johnson to make it 21-17 at the half. The action on offense stopped for both teams until late in the fourth when FSU went up 7 on a 42 yard field with a minute left in the game. The following drive came down to a 3rd and long as Harris scrambled for the first down and was knocked out of bounds, or atleast that's what Brad Nessler thought. The referees on the other marked the ball 4th an inches and kept the clock running forcing coach Coleman to burn his last time out. So with 13 seconds left and half a field in front of him Harris dropped back to pass. To his surprise he spotted a receiver streaking down the middle of the field open in between the zone coverage. Unfortunately for Canes' fans the young quarterback wasn't able to put the proper touch on the ball to get it over the dropping linebacker as the defender leaped into the air and got just enough of the ball to secure the 24-17 victory. The obvious choice for player of the game in this one was FSU halfback Jermaine Thomas as he led his team in both rushing(22 car, 149 yds, TD) and receiving (6 cth, 53 yds). Combine that with a smart passing game and a bend but don't break defense and the Noles strike first in a series that is sure provide many more exciting finishes. The only question is can the rest of the E League do the same.
