flopped against Miami. It just wasnt inten
#1
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Once again, Florida flopped against Miami. It just wasnt intentional this time around. The 12th-ranked Gators dominated just about every statistical category -- including turnovers, and that ultimately was what decided everything. Florida turned the ball over five times, came up empty on four red-zone trips and wound up losing 21-16 to the Hurricanes on Saturday in whats widely expected to be the last time the one-time traditional rivals meet for a long, long time. "I cant give it to Miami," Gators offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison said. "It is on us." Stephen Morris threw two first-quarter touchdown passes to put Miami ahead, and the onslaught of Gator mistakes ensured that the Hurricanes stayed there. The win almost certain assures that the Hurricanes -- dogged for the last 26 months by a still-unresolved NCAA probe -- will return to the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2010. "Its been such a hard road," Miami coach Al Golden said. "Weve just been battling this thing and obviously theyre one of the teams theyve been battling during this thing. I think you guys can figure that out. It was just a very cathartic moment. It was a great moment for our guys, all those guys that not only chose the University of Miami during this but stood there and fought." In 1971, the Gators executed whats forever known as the "Florida Flop," when the defence fell to the ground and let Miami score, just so the offence could get the ball back and allow John Reaves to break Jim Plunketts record for NCAA career passing yards. This one will just go down as an all-day flop. Jeff Driskel completed 22 of 33 passes for a career-best 291 yards and a late touchdown for Florida (1-1), which had gotten off to 2-0 starts in each of the previous eight seasons. But he had two interceptions, fumbled once and was stopped on a fourth-down try for another giveaway, all part of a messy effort by the Gators. "It started with me," Driskel said. "I was careless with the ball." Duke Johnson added a 2-yard touchdown run for a 21-9 lead with 3:29 left for Miami (2-0), which has won four straight dating back to last season, the longest such streak for the Hurricanes since 2008. The offensive numbers were ridiculously one-sided, in favour of the Gators. Florida outgained Miami 413-212, had a 22-10 edge in first downs, outran the Hurricanes 122-50, enjoyed nearly a 2-to-1 edge in time of possession and held Miami to an abysmal 1-for-11 effort on third-down chances. And the Gators still lost, only blaming themselves afterward. "You cannot keep shooting yourself in the foot, especially on the road," Florida coach Will Muschamp said. Miami had 143 yards in the first quarter, averaging 7.9 yards per play. The rest of the way: 69 yards, 2.0 per play. It was Miamis lowest yardage total in a victory since Oct. 26, 1996, when the Hurricanes managed only 162 against then-No. 12 West Virginia. "There was nothing easy on that field," Golden said. "For either team." For Florida, that was particularly true when it got inside the Miami 20. The one touchdown Florida had in the red zone was a gift, set up by a blocked punt in the first quarter. The other Florida trips deep into Miami territory ended thusly: -- Interception by Miamis Rayshawn Jenkins. -- Driskel stopped on downs by Miamis Denzel Perryman and Olsen Pierre. -- Fumble by Trey Burton that was forced by the Hurricanes Jimmy Gaines. -- Field goal by Floridas Austin Hardin. -- Interception by Miamis Tracy Howard. "Im putting it on myself," Burton said. "I made many mistakes." Driskel was sacked by Miamis Tyriq McCord deep in Florida territory with 4:32 left, setting up the touchdown by Johnson that figured to put the game out of reach. Still, the Gators had a chance. Driskel -- who also ran for a score -- found Solomon Patton for a 21-yard touchdown with 2:08 left to get the Gators within five. Miami recovered the ensuing onside kick and wound up punting the ball away, but Florida went nowhere at the end, and Miami had a celebration that was long in the making. The Hurricanes had lost 12 of their last 14 games against teams ranked No. 12 or higher, often getting blown out. "This is why you come to The U, to play the Florida Gators," McCord said. The Gators reached the Miami 28 on the games opening drive, then wound losing the ball on a fumble by Matt Jones. Morris took advantage, finding Herb Waters with a 7-yard touchdown pass that opened the scoring. Morris connected with Phillip Dorsett for a 52-yard score and a 14-6 lead for Miami late in the quarter, becoming the first quarterback to have two opening-period TD throws against the Gators since JaMarcus Russell did it for LSU in 2005. After the Morris-to-Dorsett play, not counting an end-of-half kneeldown, the Hurricanes ran six plays in about 17 minutes. The Gators ran 30 in that span, and didnt get a single point out of them. "The first series we didnt do a very good job," Muschamp said. "Once we got some things corrected, we played a lot better. ... At the end of the day, we gave them too much momentum. We gave them what they needed." Erik McCoy Jersey . -- Jonathan Vilmas season is over and his future on the football field is in doubt. Cheap New Orleans Saints Jerseys .

The 16-year-old student from Smith Falls, Ont., says she has more tour experience now than when she competed at the 2013 Womens U.S. Open, where she made the cut but finished tied for 59th. Her first major appearance came in just her second career tour event. Henderson will be a little more relaxed at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, which begins Thursday at Mission Hills Country Club. "This will be my fifth (tour event), so its just a lot more comfortable being around the big stars," she said Wednesday on a conference call. "They know me a little bit better and call me by name, which is pretty cool. "My nerves have calmed down a little bit and I know what to expect, where I was a little unsure in the beginning at the U.S. Oppen.dddddddddddd" The event comes with a US$300,000 first prize and $2-million total purse although as an amateur, that doesnt matter to Henderson. Shes one of 10 amateurs invited to compete. Henderson, the sixth-ranked womens amateur golfer in the world, will be joined by 22-year-old pro Rebecca Lee-Bentham of Richmond Hill, Ont., the only other Canadian in the field. Henderson has yet to finish high school but has already verbally committed to a scholarship at the University of Florida. She hopes to crack the top three in the world amateur rankings by the end of the summer. Older sister Brittany will caddy for her at Mission Hills, as she did at the U.S. Open. Henderson credits her sister, whos also a golfer, for being a role model. "I grew up watching her play and wanted to be exactly like her," she said. "I used to follow her around at tournaments ... she knows my game very well."
