We waited eight months for that? This past Monday, Hurricanes fans got a glimpse of their 2014 squad in a nationally televised 31-13 blowout loss to the Louisville Cardinals. The fans were not impressed. The play was much the same as what we saw all last season, which was incredibly disappointing.
The loss was just the latest flop in the Al Golden era, marking the Hurricanes' fifth loss in their last seven games, all by 18 points or more. After a long summer of talk and hype, the Hurricanes looked screwed, not renewed, against the Cardinals. But now that the game is over and the damage is done, we can focus on a few takeaways.
