In his first year with the program, Al Golden led his Miami Hurricanes to a 6-6 finish and though they qualified for a bowl game, the school turned down the invitation due to a self-imposed bowl ban following a recent scandal. The 2011 season was a pretty rough one when you compare it to the amount of success this program is used to, but Coach Golden is confident his team can put it all behind them. In 2012, the Hurricanes will be facing a slightly tougher schedule, and while talent has never been an issue for Miami, still many are questioning Golden’s ability to restore the program to its former glory. The Randy Shannon era is one Miami fans want to forget fast and hope Golden will be the man for the job. Expect several young defensive stars to shine in the upcoming season, however, the offense will still need improvement with a new starting quarterback at the position and a new set of receivers. If all goes according to plan, though, the Hurricanes may be looking at another bowl invitation in the 2012 season.
