In a special ceremony held at the Greentree Practice Field, the University of Miami “broke ground” on the Carol Soffer Football Indoor Practice Facility Thursday evening – signifying the long-awaited start of construction of the $34 million project.
With that came a much-needed 28-day layoff, giving the weary No. 10 ranked Canes a chance to recuperate physically and refresh mentally before taking on No. 6 Wisconsin Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium.
Increasing competition is probably what drove University of Miami head coach Mark Richt’s decision to implement a point system during spring practice – something that he said Tuesday has revved up the level of competition as the Hurricanes completed their seventh spring practice.
