The Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish is one of those rare programs in college football that seem to reload year after year, and be among the most talented in the nation every season. The Miami RedHawks knew this ahead of Saturday’s tilt in South Bend — Coach Chuck Martin likened the game to a recess pick-up game where Notre Dame gets the first 85 picks, leaving Miami with the leftovers. With that in mind, the ‘Hawks came out with a game plan to aggressively throw the ball and hope the Irish were overlooking their Mid-American Conference opponent. Unfortunately for the...Read More
In 2012, Everett Golson, Manti Te’o and Brian Kelly led the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to a 12-0 regular season and a berth in the BCS National Championship game in one of the most memorable runs in college football history. Current Miami (2-2, 1-0 MAC) head coach Chuck Martin was a part of that 2012 Irish coaching staff. Saturday, he will return to the South Bend sideline, but this time as a visitor. “Four years later, for me, not super enjoyable,” Martin said of facing his old team. “I have really, really good friends on the other sideline. That’s...Read More
The stars appeared to align for the Miami RedHawks (1-2, 0-0 Mid-American Conference) last Saturday night. In front of a packed Yager Stadium, the ‘Hawks were playing well, feeding off the nighttime crowd and looked to be on their way to their first win over the University of Cincinnati since 2005. However, after a late interception for a touchdown, the buzzing crowd turned silent as the Bearcats walked away with their 12th straight victory over Miami. “We had an incredible crowd,” RedHawk head coach Chuck Martin said Monday. “That loss would be excruciating in any way shape or form...Read More
When the Miami RedHawks returned to Yager Stadium September 9 against Austin Peay, the ‘Hawks defense was clicking on all cylinders, led by senior safety Tony Reid. When the RedHawk offense began to struggle in the third quarter, Reid began to heat up. In the second half alone, Reid was a part of three turnovers, two coming on fumbles, while miraculously intercepting a ball down the seam deep in Miami territory. Such an impactful game on its own is noteworthy. However, when taking a look into the preparation that went into Reid’s performance, he goes from impressive athlete...Read More
For nearly 59 minutes Saturday night, it appeared the Miami RedHawks (1-2, MAC 0-0) were going to defeat the Cincinnati Bearcats (2-1, 0-0 AAC) for the first time since 2005. With 1:07 remaining, the more than 20,000 fans inside Yager Stadium saw an interception for a touchdown to give Cincinnati the lead for good. “We should have won 17-14,” head coach Chuck Martin said. “It should have been a hard-fought victory. It should have been exactly what we wanted, and unfortunately twice in three weeks, we’ve self-inflicted and not won football games.” For the majority of the matchup, Martin’s...Read More
