Randy Shannon's debut as coach of the Miami Hurricanes was a breeze.
Javarris James ran for two touchdowns, Tavares Gooden and Calais
Campbell had interceptions to set up easy scoring drives, and the
Hurricanes recorded six sacks while beating Marshall 31 to 3 today
Unranked entering a season for the first time since 1998, Miami
looked at the opener as its first chance to prove this isn't the
same sort of team that stumbled its way to a 7-6 record last
The Hurricanes didn't waste time suggesting their new coach will
change things around.
Marshall has dropped eight straight games against teams from BCS
conferences, getting outscored 228 to 84 in those matchups.
Their only points in today's game came from Anthony Binswanger's
37-yard field goal.
It doesn't get any easier next week for the Thundering Herd.
They play third-ranked West Virginia University in Huntington.
