Back at it, and better than ever. 

The Canes had a rough start this season. After UM dropped the season opener to LSU 33-17, it looked like Miami fans were in for a painful flashback to last year’s three-game losing streak. 

But then came Hurricanes vs. Tigers, round two. UM mauled Savannah State (props on that headline, Josh) in a record-setting first home game last weekend – and finally broke out the glitzier, pricier, new-and-improved Turnover Chain. 

Trajan Bandy was the first to unveil the bedazzled ibis, replacing last season’s iconic Cuban link ‘U' – the sophomore cornerback recovered a Tigers fumble during the Sept. 8 bout with Savannah State. The chain's been donned six times since, and even with brand new ticketing and tailgating policies in effect at Hard Rock, fans just can’t get enough. 

Here’s the full story of the turnover chain, from its legendary beginnings to the latest Canes to wear it.

President Frenk's got big plans. 

And he’s ready to share them with us tonight. His first annual “State of the U” town hall meeting kicks off at 5 p.m. Catch the interactive exhibits beforehand, and be sure to stick around for his one-on-one with NBC6 anchor (and former Cane) Jackie Nespral. 
But Frenk is most looking forward to the question-and-answer session with you, the students, he said.

Brush up on his 10-year “Roadmap to Our New Century,” the topic du jour – it’s the driving force behind projects like the new $100 million science and engineering building, which broke ground this May, and the tapping of the nation’s first atheism chair.

Paying attention to long-term plans like these could bump UM back up to a Top 50 school – we’re now at No. 53 in the U.S. News & World Report, the lowest we’ve slipped all decade. But don’t let it get you down, our editorial board writes. We’re more than a number.

If you can’t make it to the State of the U in person (entry is by reservation only) the whole thing will be livestreamed on UM’s Facebook page. And be sure to follow TMH on Twitter for our coverage of the event.

Remembering Mac Miller. The rapper’s death stirred fans and critics across the country to reflection—including a number of our own writers.

“This mythical feeling washes over you in the wake of his death because he so frequently rapped about his own demise,” columnist Kay-Ann Henry writes. “His death feels personal for so many reasons.”

On harassment in Hollywood. Olivia Munn made headlines this month when she uncovered that Steven Striegel, who acted opposite her in “The Predator,” had pled guilty to two felonies involving a 14-year-old girl in 2010. 

“The same people keep messing up and keep getting the same opportunities over and over," Munn said in a live Skype session with UM students at a Cosford Cinema screening of the film. "The rest of us have to go to the back of the line and work our way up."
