Miami Football Players Celebrate At FSU's Midfield, Mark Richt Isn't Happy

Jeff Romance  FSU athletics

"He always does his job, has wonderful attention to detail", said Rosier, who is 5-0 as a starter in his college career. "This was for all the guys (before us) that didn't win".

It's the reason defensive coordinator Charles Kelly has become the favorite social media whipping boy of FSU fans, although head coach Jimbo Fisher, the only one on the staff allowed to talk to the media, took the blame for the staff after the game.

The Hurricanes struggled to run the football all game.

We're all for sportsmanship, but this is one case where it is hard to blame the players for having some fun after taking down a rival. Miami regains possession at 8:13 mark of second quarter. Some wondered if Miami had better options at returner, though UM's coaches always said they were riding with him. "I'm probably most happy for them". Seminoles up 3-0 with just over four minutes left in the 1st quarter.

Tate caught a 20-yard touchdown from Blackman to regain the lead, 20-17, with 1:24 left.

It's a heated rivalry known for its miscues on kicks late in the game, including Florida State's victory on a blocked PAT late in last year's game.

Auburn's Jarrett Stidham completed 14 of 21 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns. Noles start the offense with the ball on their own 20-yard line. FSU had more success on the ground, getting 121 rushing yards from freshman Cam Akers and 91 from Jacques Patrick, and also had a few big throws from Blackman, but it wasn't enough to put the Canes away.

Miami had known nothing but heartbreak against Florida State in recent years. Seminoles defensive back Stanford Samuels gets the pick.


With two young, unproven quarterbacks and shaky offensive line play against talented defenses, the game featured just six points in the first 37 minutes.

The finish to this game will be remembered by all and debated by some for years to come. He hit 4 of 5 passes on third down in the third quarter, along with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Braxton Berrios with 6:57 in the third.

Wide receiver Tyler Vaughns and tight end Josh Falo each caught their first career touchdown reception from Darnold as the Trojans were workmanlike in bouncing back from last week's 30-27 loss at No. 11 Washington State. That Saturday, Miami beat Toledo, and Florida State lost to an NC State team that appears to be one of Clemson's toughest tests left.

"We're very disappointed. We feel like we should've won the game", said Seminoles linebacker Matthew Thomas, who is a native of Miami.

In conclusion, Miami must get up their run defense up to par and find more rotational players on the d-line as conference play continues. "We played our tails off today".

NOTES: Saturday's attendance was 78,169.

Miami isn't a finished product, but second-year coach Mark Richt clearly has this thing pointed in the right direction. Walker was able to attend the game because his National Football League team, the Denver Broncos, are on a bye this week.

That is playing out on the field, as Richt led the Hurricanes to a 9-4 record in 2016 to match their best win total in over a decade. Florida State starting receiver and kicker returner Keith Gavin injured his right leg after the Hurricanes' first touchdown on a return and did not come back.
