Remember how some of you cast longing eyes at Dan Enos to fill the OC position on Smart’s staff? Well, after leaving Arkansas for an analyst’s spot in Tuscaloosa, he spent this season as Miami’s OC. The results haven’t been especially pretty.
Miami entered the game with the nation’s worst third-down conversion percentage, and going 5-for-14 on Thursday didn’t help that much. The Hurricanes finished the year with three straight losses and averaged only 25.7 points per game. It raised more questions about the future of offensive coordinator Dan Enos, whose lone season with the Hurricanes saw the offense perform well below expectations.
The teams set the game record for punts at 18, with both tying the single-club record of nine.
Last night was the first time since 1994 that Miami was shut out in a bowl game and only the third time ever.
As for raising more questions, it seems Manny Diaz had already answered those before kickoff.
I guess that’s what mailing in your playcalling looks like.
