Hurricanes' secondary needs to be more consistent

The young Miami Hurricanes' secondary hasn't been consistent this season, and Al Golden is sick of talking about it. Now, it's time for them to step up.

Al Golden is tired of answering questions about the Miami Hurricanes' secondary. The Miami defense hasn't been great this season, and that could be attributed to a young, inexperienced secondary. But Golden wants to see those players step up and make plays anyway.

"Personally, I'm tired of answering questions about the secondary," Golden said, courtesy of the Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I'd like to see a couple of those guys step up and say, other than [Brandon] McGee ‘You know what, I'm going to practice so well that you're not going to want to take me out of the game. I'm going to prepare so well that I'm going to make plays.'

"I've seen many of them do it at different times. I just haven't seen them all have their best day on the same day."

At least the Hurricanes have their most experienced defensive back in fifth-year senior Vaughn Telemaque, who had a pair of tackles and a forced fumble against N.C. State.

The Hurricanes defeated N.C. State on Saturday, 44-37.
