This will now have to play out where someone new needs to go into the closet and steal Clark Kent’s cape. Miami is in desperate need of a center stage thief.

Malik Rosier’s shoulder has also been admittedly hurting the Hurricane signal caller. He reported he was finally able to throw during a Sunday session unabated to any lingering issues.

Also a question is Rosier’s psyche. After being benched in the fourth quarter versus Pittsburgh for ineffectiveness, how will he respond?

So many questions are shrouding this Hurricane team in a convenient purple and orange scarf with the words “no chance” on it. Clemson has no iota of compassion or empathy for a less than healthy Hurricane team.

Clemson has one goal on its mind and the Hurricanes are merely inconvenient happenstance. They want to repeat as national champions. You’ll have to beat that mantra out of them before you ever can beat them on the scoreboard.

For Miami to have a chance they will have to rally behind the unwavering force of togetherness despite the odds. Everyone will pick the Clemson Tigers. Everyone.

This is not new territory when you consider most pundits picked the Hokies and the Fighting Irish earlier this year. Miami reveled and fed off the perceived disrespectful animosity and systematically removed Notre Dame and Virginia Tech from any playoff contention.
