The Miami Hurricanes basketball team had a heartbreaking late 68-66 loss on Saturday at Duke. Miami was led by Jordan Miller with 19 before fouling out and Nijel Pack with 18. Miami star Isaiah Wong battled through an illness scoring only seven points on Saturday in his second consecutive game in single digits.

Miami football legend Ed Reed posted to Twitter that “with great sadness” that Bethune-Cookman has chosen not to ratify his contract as their head football coach. Reed was hired last month. The hiring of Reed at Bethune-Cookman was compared to Deion Sanders as head coach at Jackson State.

The reversal of the hiring of Reed by Bethune-Cookman negated a great Miami Hurricanes 2023 week three storyline. Miami will host Bethune-Cookman on Septmber 14. There has been no word if Reed will return to Miami as a Senior Football Advisor. Reed was previously the Miami Chief of Staff.

The loss by the Miami basketball team at Duke drops the Hurricanes into a five-way tie for third place in the ACC. Miami is a game behind second-place Virginia who they defeated last month and two games behind first-place Clemson. The loss at Duke was the first of three straight road games for Miami

The Miami Hurricanes play on Tuesday night at Florida State and Saturday at Pittsburgh. Miami has lost nine straight games to Florida State. The Miami basketball team has not defeated Florida State since the 15th-ranked Hurricanes beat the 24th-ranked Seminoles 80-74 in their first meeting in 2018.

In addition to Reed other developments to watch with the Miami Hurricanes football staff will be what will Mario Cristobal decide to do with offensive coordinator Josh Gattis and how will the transfer portal take shape. Patience will be needed with both as Cristobal has proven to prefer a deliberate approach.

Miami Hurricanes cornerback Tyrique Stevenson is projected as the 23rd overall pick by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2023 NFL Draft by Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.Com. Jeremiah said “Stevenson has some flaws, but he’s big (6-0, 214), fast and tough. He would be a significant addition to a porous Vikings secondary.”
