The Miami Hurricanes' regular season came to an end on Saturday with one of their most disappointing performances in a long time.  That game left fans wondering what happened as Miami was torched by North Carolina for 62 points. 

Did the rigors of the season get to Miami and cause the Canes to come out flat?  Matt Hayes, from Stadium, joined The Joe Rose Show on Tuesday morning and said that may have been the case.

“It’s probably not the right time for Manny Diaz to say it right after getting a 60-burger hung on them, but he’s speaking the truth and I know Canes fans don’t want to hear that but he absolutely is," Hayes said. "Every coach I’ve spoken with says it’s been an absolute nightmare… the mental grind of playing in a bubble when there really wasn’t a bubble… that’s not easy for young guys.”

Miami is expected to be playing in a bowl game to finish the season.
