There is lots of good news surrounding the Miami Hurricanes football team right now.

The Hurricanes have won three straight games, which at the end of the day is the greatest thing that matters.

The young guys on the defensive side of the ball are getting tons of experience.

Javarris James and Graig Cooper are healthy for the stretch run.

Robert Marve and Jacory Harris still have their ribs and ligaments intact.

And Cane fans have so much to talk about, giving everybody their money's worth during another rebuilding season.

Miami defeated Wake Forest 16-10 on Saturday, successfully gaining just enough yardage to score just enough points in another questionably-managed offensive game.

There were some wonderful things that happened out there.

The defense got surprised again by the offensive game plan of the opposition, but this time adjustments were made by the end of the first quarter rather than at halftime. After allowing 10 points and more than 100 yards rushing in the first 16 minutes as Wake ran 24 straight times to open the game, Miami's defense didn't allow Wake Forest to score again.

The Hurricanes showed incredible toughness going against an older, veteran team that came in with a game plan to turn the game into a fist f!ght it thought it would win. But Miami stood toe-to-toe with Wake Forest and never backed down, a mighty huge sign of progress.

Adewale Ojomo continued his emergence as a humble star of the future, sacking Riley Skinner and stripping the ball from behind late in the third quarter. Antonio Dixon recovered and Miami ended up kicking the field goal that gave it the final six-point margin.

Matt Bosher continued his All-American like season as a placekicker, nailing his three field goal attempts, one from 52 yards. Bosher has now made 12 of his 13 attempts this season.

Players are bouncing back from tough experiences and making contributions, like Sam Shields and Romeo Davis, two big contributors on Saturday. Shields had a big play off a reverse on a kickoff return and then broke a tackle off a catch and turned it into a big play. Davis played a lot of snaps and helped settle down the defense. And let's not forget Robert Marve, who protected the ball better and made higher-quality decisions.

Marve played well enough that the quarterback drama that had been created over the past few weeks, with outside elements trying ridiculously hard to manufacture problems between Marve and Harris and their respective camps, was put on the backburner once again as folks refocused on the worthiness of offensive coordinator Patrick Nix's play-calling that simply doesn't seem to be working.

Winning is a Band-Aid. It's the element that makes you question where you should stand as a Hurricane fan. Is it fair to be critical of something after a victory? I found myself asking that question over and over after the final gun sounded Saturday.

Everybody knew before the first kickoff, and understands even better right now, that this was not the year Miami was loaded up for a run at teams like Penn State and Texas. So the homer inside of you has to beg for a mindset where any victory is treated like a precious commodity. The homer asks: What did you expect?

Miami was a few touchdowns better than North Carolina and lost because failed offense in the middle of the game left the team exposed to the defensive disasters it experienced in the final stages of the fourth quarter.

Miami was a few touchdowns better than that Wake Forest team it played Saturday. The Canes won by six.

To my eyes, Miami seems to be playing offense with one hand tied behind its back.

Football fans and analysts instinctively like to see style points, too. They were all over the place Saturday on defense with the toughness and continued development of players, particularly on the defensive line. There were not many style points on offense, which is why Nix again is a focal point.

You want a theory on why Miami is not getting enormously better on the offensive side of the football, even with the emergence of those freshmen playmakers at receiver? This unit never does the same thing from one game to the next, and running backs Javarris James and Graig Cooper are always disappearing from the game.

Nix has some great looking plays in that playbook of his, way more than last year. He hits on some of them too. But he can't seem to put two of them together, something that was painfully evident Saturday as Miami struggled to find the end zone.

Nix finally ditched that horizontal passing game that was k!lling him up until Saturday, so he had greater success much of the time on first down. But, for some reason, he again decided his quarterbacks as his running backs were his bread and butter. For the second week in a row, his quarterbacks got the most carries in the running game, a few of them on second down and short-yardage plays that didn't work and left Miami in harder-to-make third-down situations. Miami was seven of 17 in those situations on Saturday.

Maybe everyone should be thrilled that Nix hit once out of the 11 times Marve and Harris took on the role of runners on Saturday. Marve's 43-yard run in the third quarter was one of the biggest plays in the game and set up the touchdown that ultimately won the game. But wouldn't you rather see a scheme that allows Cooper or James to make that run?

In the Wake Forest game Cooper carried 12 times and James just six. In the Duke game Cooper carried seven times and James just three. And against FSU Cooper had six carries and James didn't play due to injury.

You have two skinny young quarterbacks. Do they really need to be taking all those extra shots? Does that one successful run negate the other 10 failures that helped k!ll drives in this game? If this is a season of building, isn't a real running game and scheme included on the construction list? Is it fair of us to ask that question in the aftermath of a victory? Is it nitpicking?

Virginia Tech, which loves its quarterbacks taking hits, lost two of them in one game up at Florida State Saturday. Where is Miami going if it loses Marve and Harris? You can't develop young quarterbacks if one or both end up on the injured list, which they probably will if they keep getting overly exposed to this kind of punishment on game day.

I say this knowing that FSU has been exposing Christian Ponder, particularly against Miami, and is winning with it. I say it knowing that Tim Tebow is physically exposed every week. But a young Marve and Harris could be limbs on Tebow's body. And Miami isn't playing for the national title right now. And there are plenty of other quarterbacks out there like Colt McCoy and Sam Bradford who are very successful without trying to be their team's leading rushers.

The wins of the past three weeks have created an opportunity for the Hurricanes, which in turn begs for self-analysis and continued advancement. If North Carolina drops one game, Miami controls its destiny if it wins out. Even if Carolina doesn't slip up, four more wins by the Hurricanes would almost certainly land them in the Peach Bowl or Gator Bowl at 9-3 and stamp this season a colossal success. If that happens, Randy Shannon might even give Nick Saban a run for his money in National Coach of the Year voting.

I really think it can happen if Nix steps up his game.

Virginia on the road on Saturday figures to be a brutal test. The Cavaliers are on a high right now after winning on the road at Georgia Tech and surging to the top of the Coastal Division standings. If they beat Miami on Saturday for a fifth straight win, they may actually end up in Tampa in the conference title game.

Virginia Tech is a beaten down team that Miami gets on a Thursday night at home.

Georgia Tech will be very tough in a road Thursday night test, but the Yellow Jackets were just beaten at home by Virginia.

The road game at North Carolina State could also be tough, but the struggling Wolfpack figure to have their cleats halfway packed into their storage lockers by then.

So I apologize to anyone who might cringe at the idea of building expectations at this stage of the resurrection project. But I have seen enough progress this season from this team that I am not making any excuses for Nix or anybody else these final four games.

The next step in the progression for Randy Shannon and Miami is to win games they should win, the way FSU is doing this year, the way Miami has now done the past three weeks. This team is good enough to win them now if it plays smart and with passion.

That's what I took out of Dolphin Stadium on Saturday. And even with some of the other questionable things that many of us saw, that is nothing but a positive.

MIAMI, Fla. -- Robert Marve led Miami to a hard-fought 16-10 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.

Marve came into the game as the unpopular choice as the starting quarterback after back-up Jacory Harris threw for four touchdowns in a win over Duke last week.

Miami (5-3, 2-2) coach Randy Shannon decided to stay with Marve and he responded by throwing for 153 yards on 11-of-20 passing and rushing for 56 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.

"(Alphonso Smith) and (Aaron Curry) are the best players I have seen on defense," Marve said. "Those guys were incredible. Fast guys who can hit especially (Curry), he was huge and moved well. They showed a lot of different things at us. I thought Coach Nix did a good job of changing it up and hitting them different ways to involve our playmakers."

Harris did not have the same success he had last week as he completed 4-of-8 passes for 41 yards.

Miami freshman receiver Travis Benjamin led the team with four receptions for 72 yards. Graig Cooper was held to just 27 rushing yards on 12 carries and Javarris James had 14 yards on six carries.

Matt Bosher kicked a 52-yard field goal--his second of the game--to pull Miami within 10-6 on the first drive of the second half. The field goal was set-up by a 36-yard kickoff return by Sam Shields, who was hit out of bounds by Wake Forest lineman Joe Birdsong and was flagged for a 15-yard penalty.

Miami took a 13-10 lead behind the running ability of Marve. Marve kept the ball on an option play and raced up the Miami sideline for a 43-yard gain before being tackled at the 3. Two plays later, Marve punched it in with a 1-yard quarterback sneak.

"He looked like Jacory out there (running)," Shannon said.

On defense, Adewale Ojomo came up with a big play as he sacked Riley Skinner and forced a fumble, which was recovered by Antonio Dixon. Miami settled for another Bosher field goal, this one from 43 yards, as Miami led 16-10 with 12 minutes left.

"(The fumble) was a big play in the game," Shannon said. "That helped us in field position, excitement for the fans, and for this football team. You need a little bit of inspiration to get you going and that was a big play."

Wake Forest's Shane Popham missed a 40-yard field with six minutes minutes remaining as Miami held on for the victory over Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2).

"I thought he hit it pretty good, he went through it fine, it just didn't go through the uprights," Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe said.

Wake Forest, the ACC's top passing team and 11th in rushing offense, ran the ball 24 consecutive times to start the game.

"We just didn't play well last week against Maryland, too much spread stuff," Grobe said. "We wanted to come into today and run the football a little bit. We probably didn't get as much as we hoped to get out of our throwing game."

Wake Forest pounded the ball on their first drive of the game with 10 consecutive runs covering 66 yards, which was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run by fullback Mike Rinfrette. Tailback Josh Adams had eight carries for 45 yards on the five-minute drive.

Miami pulled within 7-3 with a 36-yard field goal by Matt Bosher. The field goal was set-up by a 48-yard pass from Marve to Benjamin as Benjamin got behind safety Christian Hartford on the play.

Wake Forest continued to pound the ball throughout the first quarter. After 18 straight runs to start the game, the Demon Deacons faced a 3rd-and-10 situation. Instead of passing, the Demon Deacons ran a draw play to Brandon Pendergrass, who picked up 25 yards on the run. Four plays later, Shane Popham kicked a 24-yard field goal for a 10-3 lead.

Up Next

Miami will travel to Virginia (4-3, 2-1) next week with a Nov. 1 game at noon. Virginia defeated Miami last season 48-0 in Miami. Miami is 2-2 against Virginia since joining the ACC in 2004 with the Cavaliers winning the last two.

Virginia plays at Georgia Tech later on Saturday.

Don't underestimate Miami's 20-16 win over Wake Forest.

This win is arguably the biggest win UM has come up with under Randy Shannon.

Miami beat a very sold Wake team--the second come-from-behind win in a row--in a scrappy game in which UM displayed an efficient offense and a defense that became stingy after some in game adjustments.

Miami's season could have gone either way after the Wake Game--a win gives UM a big boost coming down the stretch of ACC play, while a loss would be very hard to overcome.

As Miami continues to win, this team will continue to build a confidence that carries over from week to week as UM gears up for their tough Coastal Division stretch of the season.

The more confidence that this young and talented team plays with, the scarier they will be to their final four opponents.

Miami is in a pretty good position to own its own destiny to the ACC title game should they win out the rest of their games.

UM plays Coastal Division foes Virginia, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech in the next three weeks and if they can get out of all those games with victories, UM could be the team that emerges from the logjam of a division.

None of the remaining games left on the schedule are sure wins, but one thing that stands out about this year's team is that they won't go down without a f!ght and be in position to win every game.

And that's why I like UM's chances to surprise some people in the final month of the season.

MIAMI, Fla. -- Miami fought hard and came out on top of Wake Forest with a tough 16-10 win Saturday.

For the second straight week Miami had a comeback win after being down at halftime.

What did UM's win over Wake Forest mean moving forward this season? Here are five things we learned about Miami after their win over Wake Forest.

************************************************** ******

Run defense needs work

Wake Forest did noting but run the ball in the beginning of the game. Wake started the game by running 24 straight running plays for 127 yards and one touchdown. The UM defense was gashed for so many yards due to multiple reasons--players were caught out of position, bad tackling, and Wake's offensive gameplan catching UM's defense off-balance. On a lot of Wake's long runs, Miami had trouble beating the Demon Deacons to the edge. Wake Forest came into the game ranked 11th in the ACC in rushing offense. Miami adjusted in the second quarter and did an adequate job of stopping the run the rest of the game, allowing just 11 rushing yards in the second half.

Running game opened up the offense in second half

After giving the ball to Graig Cooper and Javarris James a combined seven times in the first half, Miami started to establish a running game in the second half and that paid off big for the UM offense. On UM's first touchdown drive, Marve picked up 43 yards on a quarterback option run that brought UM's offense down to Wake's 3 yard line. That play was set up by a couple runs by James on the same drive and Marve was able to break the long run because of the threat of James. Miami ran the ball for 102 yards on 33 carries. Marve was the leading rusher with 56 yards and one touchdown.

Travis Benjamin is becoming Miami's primary offensive threat

Freshman receiver Travis Benjamin continues to get more looks on offense. Benjamin would have scored on his 48-yard reception in the first quarter had the ball not been under thrown. Benjamin was also given the ball on an end-around and picked up ten yards and a first down. He finished the game with 72 yards on four receptions and was a deep threat the Wake Forest defense had to account for whenever he was on the field. Benjamin is making a very strong case that he should be considered Miami's best offensive player.

Robert Marve responded after the Duke game

Marve executed the offensive gameplan perfectly against Wake Forest today. Marve went 11-for-20 for 153 yards and one rushing touchdown. Marve threw bullets all over the field and showed why the staff still believes in him to be the starting quarterback. Marve's 43-yard run in the third quarter opened up the offense and from that point on, he looked a lot more comfortable running the offense. He also played a key role in UM picking up first downs as UM finished the day 7-of-17 on third down conversions. Marve had a very solid game today.

Matt Bosher should be considered one of the top kickers in the country

From a field goal kicking standpoint, Matt Bosher is having a stellar year. After making field goals of 36, 52, and 43 yards against Wake Forest, Bosher has made 12-of-13 field goals on the yard. Bosher was considered one of the top kickers in the country when he came to Miami in the 2006 recruiting class and now his talent is coming to fruition. Bosher has been up and down with his punting throughout the year and against Wake Forest he had another mental lapse with a 15 yard punt, but he more than made up for that punt with his kicking performance.

That kid is a beast yo, although you already know. He'd be a nice get.

I haven't been able to watch Miami lately but Harris is far outperforming Marve right?

And what's up with Denard Robinson. I hear y'all want him as a CB but he wants a shot at QB and the Gators are willing to give him that shot. Is it basically down to us and y'all? I also hear Michigan might be in the picture but hopefully he's smart enough not to fall for d*ck Rod's bullsh*t.

Actually whether you believe it or not the Gators would allow him to compete at QB. If it didn't work out he's such a good player he could excel on offense in other areas.
