    Sanders shines as Miami tames the Tigers, win BCS national championship
    Derek Sanders played quarterback six hundred miles from the site of this year's national championship for the Trinity Tigers as a highly-touted recruit.

    It only made sense on Monday that it was Sanders, lined up at quarterback, that sealed the game for Miami.

    Sanders ripped off a 76-yard run with 2:19 left in the game to put Miami up 35-24 and the defense took care of the rest and handed the Hurricanes their seventh national championship in school history.

    "We practice that all the time," said Sanders, who rushed for 126 yards and three touchdowns in his breakout performance, "Coach Franklin does a good job of keeping me calm, letting me know and Jason [White] is great. He keeps me in the loop, I started freshman camp as a quarterback so I'm comfortable back there."

    In what will ultimately be his last game, as White announced via a letter with the Player Tribune, White wasn't the electrifying freshman that splashed onto to the scene when he first won the very same championship against UCLA two years ago but rather the cool, calm and collected leader of a Miami offense that put together several long drives, helping his defense fight against Auburn's no-huddle offense.

    "I think when people talk about me," says White, "I hope they think winner. Those stats, those numbers are nice and the records and the Heisman, they're all great. But to me, the real accomplishment is getting it done at the highest stage and being a leader."

    White completed 16 of 25 passes for 150 yards but also rushed for 46 yards. D'Andre Sparks, also playing in his last game, rushed for 73 yards and two touchdowns, tying the Miami record for most career rushing yards.

    Sparks was given the option to be on the field for two would-be touchdowns at the goal line but opted to let the younger guy, Sanders, stay on the field.

    "He's the finisher man," says Sparks, "He does a lot of the dirty work, throughout the season, so I felt it was best for him to finish it out."

    Senior Justin Fogle, who owns most of the major Miami receiving records, had just two catches for 13 yards. He's expected to be a first round pick along with White.

    ‣ Coaching staff remains intact as positions get filled

    While many of Miami's assistants, especially former Michigan State head coach and current defensive coordinator Mark Dantonio, have drawn interests for head coaching jobs, not a single one of them will leave the University of Miami.

    Neither Dantonio or Tony Franklin even took interviews while quarterback coach Jon Richt, Mark Richt's son, was interviewed for the offensive coordinator position at Louisville.

    Former Miami offensive coordinator Matt Lubick, who was fired by Syracuse after a 4-8 season, is now at Louisville as their head coach. Florida head coach Manny Diaz, another Richt disciple, has also gone after Richt but to no avail. Richt is widely viewed, internally, as the offensive coordinator in waiting at Miami should Franklin decide to retire in the next few seasons.

    ‣ Infusion of young talented could lead to mass exodus at receiver

    A few Miami juniors, who many fans did not think would even consider leaving early, might be on their way out.

    Lee Foster and Dan Nelson received 'encouraging' feedback regarding their potential draft status this past week and both receivers have considered going pro despite neither of them having really played extensively at Miami. Foster had 592 yards this season and 289 for Nelson respectively in their first season playing for Miami as redshirt juniors.

    It is speculated that the trio of true freshman -- Marcus Jackson, Robert Rogers and J.B. O'Connor -- as well as incoming five-star recruits at the position has led them to look towards the league.

    Miami does expect, however, linebacker Chris Gilmore and defensive tackle Carlos Green and Taylor Grant to return for their senior seasons as well as cornerbacks Sean Gordon and Brad Summers. All five came together in the same class and want to finish out together.

    Miller, Foster among surprise early departures
    Miami juniors tight end Adrian Miller, wide receiver Lee Foster and corner back Brad Summers have all declared for the draft along with quarterback Jason white, which was expected.

    Foster, Miller and Summers departures come as a surprise to Miami's coaching staff who expected to have the trio back for their senior season.

    The Hurricanes lose a lot of firepowers in White and seniors D'Andre Sparks and Justin Fogle.

    ‣ Georgia State FB Andre Flowers transfers to Miami

    Georgia State freshman fullback Andre Flowers is transferring to the University of Miami.

    Flowers, who is a native of Kendall, Florida, is transferring to be closer to his family. The freshman fullback will need to sit out this season due to transfer rules.

    ‣ Miami 'all-in' on McCarthy, Sapp

    Miami is focusing all of it's recruiting efforts on landing tight end John McCarthy and center Chris Sapp, especially after Adrian Miller's unexpected early departure.

    The Hurricanes are also on the recruiting tail for four-stars WR Joe walker and OLB Ricky Osborn.

    ‣ Jackson and Fitzpatrick continue to share snaps

    Don't expect head coach Mark Richt to name a starter any time soon, if he even names a starter.

    Miami continues to play both redshirt sophomore Kevin Fitzpatrick and redshirt freshman Tim 'Action' Jackson extensively with the first team offense. Richt has yet to name a starter or even spoken much about who is the leader heading into camp although people close to the team think Jackson is the quarterback of the future but lacks the arm strength of Fitzpatrick.

    ‣ Offensive line shuffles around as Schneider moves inside.

    Miami left tackle Mateo DiFronzo, who struggled in pass protection last season, is getting some help.

    Senior offensive lineman Jeremy Schneider, who started at right tackle last season, has moved to left guard as the team moves perhaps their most athletic lineman in Schneider inside. At six-foot-five and 320 pounds, Schneider struggled last season as well against edge rusher.

    The Hurricanes entire right side will be first year starters in Rusty Hollins and Quinton Smith, two former three-star recruits.

    ‣ Lamont Bennett moves back to receiver after Dan Nelson arrest

    Miami senior wide receiver Dan Nelson was arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior last week according to police reports. The Hurricanes coaching staff or athletic department has refused to comment on the issue.

    Senior Lamont Bennett, who switched from receiver to safety last season, is back on offense this week. He is starting opposite of sophomore Marcus Jackson on the outside at receiver with Kendrick Shelton and Robert Rogers on the inside.

    ‣ Miami make late addition to season schedule; will open season once again against Alabama

    Miami wanted to open their season at Notre Dame but the two sides were unable to agree to terms to renew their rivalry. Instead, Miami will travel into to Tuscaloosa with a new starting quarterback.

    The Hurricanes will play against Alabama in their season opener on the road. Last year, they beat the Tide on a neutral field. In 2025, Alabama will return the favor and come to Miami for a game.

    2023: UCF, USF, Florida (neutral)
    2024: FIU, at FAU, Florida
    2025: at UCF, Florida (neutral), Alabama
