North Carolina State defeated Duke 8-7 in 11 innings in the first game of Pool D in the ACC Tournament. Shannon Dawson was named by David Cobb of CBS Sports as a coordinator poised to emerge as a head coaching candidate. The Miami Hurricanes hired Dawson in February as their new offensive coordinator.

The win by North Carolina State on Tuesday night sets up a winner take all game for Pool D between the Wolfpack and Miami Hurricanes baseball teams on Thursday night. NC State eliminated Miami from the ACC Tournament in an identical situation last year. Miami also plays Duke in the ACC Tournament on Friday.

Dawson is expected to modernize the Miami Hurricanes offense. A product of the Air Raid tree expect Dawson to strive for Miami to have a balanced offense in 2023. Miami will pass more often than they did in 2022, but not nearly as often as the Air Raid traditionally. Cobb also named former Miami OC Josh Gattis.

Adam Gorney the Rivals.Com National Recruiting Director looked back on the recruitment of former Heisman Trophy Winner and National Champion Vince Young. Miami had a late rush for Young prior to the future third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft choosing Texas. Miami began a decline when Young was on Texas.

Longtime College Football analyst Mike Farrell asked if Tyler Van Dyke’s rough season” fault or fluke? Farrell concluded that the fault for the regression of Van Dyke lay in the offense run by former Miami coordinator Josh Gattis. Farrell questions if Dawson and Van Dyke will be allowed to thrive under Mario Cristobal.
