Adam Gorney the Rivals.com National Recruiting Director wrote about the 12 Power Five coaches entering their second seasons. Gorney stated that the Miami Hurricanes roster Mario Cristobal inherited wasn’t really that good. Cristobal was praised for being a good recruiter but Gorney expects the rebuild to take time,
Gorney concluded his analysis of Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes football program that there’s so much talent in South Florida that competency alone should bring them back to life. Gorney stated Cristobal is competent but that Miami has won only double digits games once in the past 19 seasons.
