11/27/17 - Miami suffered a big blow leading up to the ACC title game against Clemson when it learned Sunday that standout tight end Christopher Herndon IV will require season-ending knee surgery. Herndon injured the MCL in his left knee during Friday's 24-14 loss to Pittsburgh. Hurricanes coach Mark Richt announced the loss of Herndon on a conference call with reporters. "Chris Herndon has been a warrior for us," Richt said. "He's been a great player and a great leader on and off the field. He's the kind of person you love to coach, and I know he's going to have a really wonderful NFL career. "It's a shame he can't finish with us because he's very important for us. He's been a mainstay in this offense, so I want to thank him first and foremost for everything he's done for us."
Herndon ranks second on the Hurricanes (10-1) with 40 receptions for 477 yards and four touchdowns. Sophomore Michael Irvin II, the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, will start against Clemson. The younger Irvin has five receptions for 56 yards. "I think it's typical when a guy becomes a starter, their level of play tends to go up," Richt said of Irvin. "I think he knows that when everyone is relying on him more than in the past, it'll help him play better." The Hurricanes face a must-win situation against Clemson in the ACC title game in terms of possibly reaching the College Football Playoffs, as their chances suffered a major hit with the loss to Pittsburgh. - The Sports Xchange
11/21/17 - There was just one change in the top 10 in the College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday, but it might be significant. Miami (10-0) moved from No. 3 to No. 2, switching spots with Clemson and thereby strengthening the ACC's odds of getting two teams in the four-team playoff. The Hurricanes and Tigers will meet in the ACC title game. When Clemson (10-1) was No. 2, it would have been easier for the selection committee to drop Miami from third to out of the playoff picture. But now the committee is on record as valuing the Hurricanes' resume above all others except Alabama, making it a more difficult decision to omit a one-loss Miami team from the playoff ... assuming it at least plays a competitive game against the Tigers.
If nothing else, Miami now has a larger margin of error, which could be problematic for a team trying to come from back in the pack -- such as No. 9 Ohio State. Selection committee chairman Kirby Hocutt said there was little separation among the top five teams. "We talked about a Miami team that has shown progress, really strengthened their resume in the last three weeks," Hocutt said. "The selection committee, as we talk about what we see on the field, we see characteristics of a championship-caliber team. ... "They have the ever-slight margin ahead of No. 3 Clemson." The committee did get that right. - The Sports Xchange
