The Miami Hurricanes dressing room is injured, not busted, after another 2-3 start

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Will Mallory has been at the University of Miami for five seasons.

He’s played for four offensive coordinators and three head coaches, and after Saturday’s heartbreaking 27-24 loss to North Carolina in the Hurricanes’ ACC season opener, he’s hit a three-game losing streak for the third time in his collegiate career.

If anyone in Miami knows if the Canes are on the verge of breaking up or are still ready to fight, it’s probably Mallory.

“Emotions are running high, people are frustrated, but there’s no sense of falling apart,” Mallory said about five minutes after his visibly frustrated head coach said Miami’s 2-3 start would not bring morale wins.

“The guys we brought in there are competitors,” Mallory continued. “It’s something we obviously have to learn from. It’s unacceptable but we’ve got a lot of football left and the last thing we can ever do is fall apart. Like Coach said, we always get together and we have to. Come back learn from it and come together learn from our mistakes. But we (must) stay together. That’s the most important. As a team, I love every single man on this team. I believe in every single man on this team. Here we go (Sunday). We have to work.”

The Hurricanes — picked to win the Coastal Division and finish 13th in the AP poll before a 17-9 loss at Texas A&M on Sept. 17 stalled — have plenty to improve on.

They keep giving up too many big passes. Her running game has been nonexistent in the last two games, and her red-zone offense hit a new low on Saturday when she failed to score in four games from inside the North Carolina 2-yard line.

But there was good news. The Miami Hurricanes dressing room is injured, not busted, after another 2-3 start
