The Hurricanes had their first post-Gators practice Tuesday.

On UM’s day off Monday, coach Al Golden was in a media whirlwind doing radio interviews from morning until night. Golden did eight interviews for hosts around the nation that day, starting at 6:30 a.m. and continuing at 6:50, 10:15, 10:30, 4:30 p.m., 4:45, 5 and Hurricane Hotline — in person and on the radio at Sandbar Sports Grill at 7.

“Al is a big proponent of maximizing his day down to the minute,” said UM assistant athletic director for communications Chris Yandle.

Golden will resume his interview spree Wednesday with the Atlantic Coast Conference teleconference at 12:30 p.m., Colin Cowherd of “The Herd” at 12:43 p.m. and Jim Rome on CBS Sports Radio at 1:03 p.m.

All UM practices this week are closed to the media.

Parlaying success

The Canes hope to parlay their early-season success into season-ticket sales. After the win over UF, UM introduced its “Second Chance” ticket packages.

The remaining home schedule: Savannah State on Sept. 21, Georgia Tech on Oct. 5, Wake Forest on Oct. 26, Virginia Tech (homecoming) on Nov. 9 and Virginia on Nov. 23.

Ticket packages start at $80 (400 level) and $130 (100 level). Go to hurricanesports.com.
