Well the Orange and Green prediction bubble has been popped. So I guess it puts a major damper on all those 10-2 or 11-1 predictions. He!!, why do you'll think I kept standing with my " 9-3 " prediction. Albeit that may so south with the Gulf stream currents. hUh As for D-line depth. It's still an unproven commodity and there's always the injury bug.

Even with Richt and staff, Miami could still finish 7-5, or even 10-2. That's why I'm staying with my CENTRIST middle-of-the-road prediction. hUh The bottom line: An 8-4 or 9-3 forecast are reasonable sound forecasts, when Cane fan factors in all the variables and whatnot.

Re: Hurricane final regular season record. I believe the prediction is based on the relative strength of their schedule, and " lack of depth " at certain positions. Then there's the possibility of a CRUCIAL injury to a key player, or players. One also to factor in an entire new coaching staff, and the new schemes on both offense and defense. Will the current players be able to handle and adjust to new plays under EXTREME dire strait conditions and whatnot? Nevertheless I'm still sticking with my 9-3 forecast, and avoiding those collective EXTREME predictions of either 10-2 or 11-1. hUh

Any college pigskin doesn't like to learn of injuries, but it is a contact sport after all and whatnot. Which leads to my next simpleton notion. Why all this chatter of Miami going ' 10-2 or even 11-1 '? Yes I understand the notion of being positive about the Canes and whatnot. But with the recent injury report coming out of Camp Rich and whatnot. Cane record matters could go south quicker than a NYC minute. hUh Oh, and one more thing. The regular season ain't even started yet, and that's when the full contact spectrum really begins for real and whatnot. That's why I still SEE-r MY Hurricanes finishing the season 9-3 and finally winning a bowl game. In other words, Miami is ' depth thin ' at certain positions and a crucial injury could put Rich and staff in DIRE STRAITS. If U Know What I Mean. dUh

Could be missing some..but thats a hell of an opening weekend. Probably can thank the new playoff system for that. Posted by: UMike | August 12, 2016 at 10:59 AM Early bird special regarding the point spread and whatnot. Lay the points in the Clemson vs. Auburn game. That's right. No matter how many points Clemson is favored by over Auburn, lay the points! Chit, I may even trek out to Sin City and bet my ' grub stake ' and what not. And one reason, among others, why I like Clemson to not only win the game, but to COVER the spread is, the college football playoff format. In other words, Dabo's squad will be looking to make a STATEMENT!
O-line is on DIRE STRAITS call. Because it's all about... PROTECTING BRAD!

The ' 1's on both sides of the LOS won the scrimmage. Although it's the first scrimmage, the Hurricanes still need to get some quality depth and whatnot.

According to the A.P. college football poll. Miami, Florida is the NO. 13 program all-time. Of course their criteria be somewhat ' flawed ' and what not. Simply because Miami, Florida wasn't considered a major program until after the 1983 season. hUh In other words, the A.P. poll takes into consideration data from the Great Depression era. LOL The bottom line: if one takes into consideration the criteria of the A.P. college football since 1983. Then Miami, Florida would surely be a legitimate Top 7 program. And that's with the lean years of both the Onion Head and Golden era's.

I have nothing against Coach Davis. After all it was his ( And assistants. ) recruited players whom set up Cane dominance in the early phase of the 21st Century ( circa 2000-2003 ). The bottom line: Miami and Davis were ROBBED " twice " of playing for and winning the NC. No ifs, buts or maybes.

Whitlock on ACC officiating So Whitlock was on the Herd show. Apparently there have been whispers for a while about corruption in ACC officiating. He firmly believes the off sides call against UNC was a fix. s we have seen for the last several years. Posted by: SinisterCane | December 10, 2015 at 09:57 AM I've been harping for the past five or six seasons, that the ACC officiating is absolutely CORRUPT!! Yet I was labeled an idiotic conspiracy loyalist. Go figure. Also, the ACC is corrupt with it's FAVORABLE officiating when Duke plays ACC opponents. Be it at Cameron or on the road. Bottom line: CORRUPTION is more prevalent and or discreet in the DEEP SOUTH than any other sector of the USA!! No ifs, buts or well maybe. And this corruption of the Johnny Rebel sort is present in ALL sectors of the deep South!! So is it any wonder one can WITNESS bogus officiating in the deep south.

Misinformation about the Sun Bowl point spread, which was posted by a Cane fan. Mike Leach's Cougar squad OPENED as a ... - 4 chalk. OPENING LINE: WSU - 4 However, after the line became available to the wagering public, a line movement went Miami's way ( Positive vibrations for Cane fandom. ). MONDAY, December 7th, a day which will live in infamy. FDR ( Best POTUS in modern American history!! ) WSU - 2 1/2 What this indicates is the Wise Guy SMART MONEY wagered on the Hurricanes, which led to a - 1 1/2 line movement. Stay tuned for any other line movement as December 26th approaches.

Mark Richt will eventually move Miami up the rankings regarding HS recruiting. Au contraire to what ESPN college football has to say on the matter. _________________ RecruitingNation Mark Richt is going from strength to strength. ESPN recruiting job rankings, 1-65 The following five factors were weighed by our experts on a scale of 1 (worst) to 5 (best). Max total points per team were 25. Within the 1-65 rankings, ties among teams with equal points were broken by a panel vote of RecruitingNation experts: 1. Favorable geography/local recruiting territory. 2. Recruiting/football budget. Sources of data were most current available information, including the data collected HERE and HERE, and original research by ESPN's recruiting reporters and team of scouts. 3. Facilities to attract recruits. 4. Next-level considerations. NFL alumni and identifiable pro prospects who provide evidence to recruits that they can play at the next level. 5. Other intangibles including but not limited to winning tradition, game-day experience and academic considerations. (Example: Schools with a positive tradition to sell to recruits could receive a "5" in this category, schools with academic restrictions that represent a hurdle in recruiting could get a "1." If there were no discernible positive or negative intangibles, panelists were instructed to give a "3" in this category.) While at Georgia, Richt found himself smack-dab in what is arguably the most fertile recruiting region in the country. He had nearly limitless financial resources, top-notch facilities, institutional and fan support, and the brand recognition to target the nation's top high school players every year. Now at Miami, Richt finds himself in yet another tremendously favorable recruiting situation in talent-rich South Florida. That said, getting players at The U will not be nearly as easy. How much tougher will recruiting be at Miami than it was at Georgia? We're glad you asked. Recruiting Nation's experts ranked all 65 Power 5 jobs by ease of recruiting, weighing five factors that contribute to the procurement of recruits (see box at right). The idea was to evaluate each job as Richt did at Miami and his successor Kirby Smart had to before signing on at Georgia, as essentially a blank canvas. Our experts were instructed to discount the presence of an iconic coach (so no "Alabama is a great recruiting job because Nick Saban is a monster recruiter") or an attractive scheme (so no: "Baylor is an attractive recruiting job because Art Briles runs a fun scheme") in making their determinations. 17. Miami Hurricanes The U practically invented swagger and sits in what is arguably the top talent-producing area in the country, but the program remains limited by poor facilities -- the stadium is 21 miles from campus and the dorms lag way behind their competitors on the trail.

ESPN ranks the Sun Bowl as the NO. 15 best bowl game for college football viewers. Go figure. SMH ________________________ 15. Hyundai Sun Bowl Miami vs. Washington State El Paso, Texas | Sun Bowl Dec. 26, 2 p.m. on CBS Washington State's Mike Leach saved his job with an 8-4 season, which started terribly with a 24-17 loss to FCS foe Portland State. Miami's Al Golden wasn't as fortunate, and he was fired after seven games. It's a great matchup of quarterbacks, especially if Luke Falk and Brad Kaaya are healthy after a few weeks of rest.

He'll assemble a great staff Trust the process? =O Posted by: Ohio_Cane | December 08, 2015 at 11:28 AM I second your notion. I can't believe I mumbled those words. And agree with O-C.

Posted by: SinisterCane | December 08, 2015 at 09:53 AM D'Antonio probably STOLE the PATENT of the vintage Miami Hurricane 4-3. Of course, he plays a 4-2 against spread offenses, but for the most part it's a ATTACKING 4-3 defensive alignment. Also, I believe there's a CORRELATION between D'Antonio employing the Miami 4-3 ( With minor adjustments here and there. ) and Michigan St.'s winning ways the past five seasons.

Hyundai Sun Bowl: Miami vs. Washington State (Dec. 26, 2 p.m., CBS) Quarterback Luke Falk's return sparks the Cougars, who pick apart Miami's defense to complete a reviving season with their ninth win. Washington State 41, Miami 30 Posted by: VfB_Cane | December 07, 2015 at 10:39 AM Cougar signal caller didn't play in the season finale against rival Washington. That's why Leach's squad was MOLESTED by double-digits. FWIW... Falk's presence makes this a DANGEROUS game for Miami. In other words, the Hurricanes will have to outscore the Cougars and come up with some timely turn overs.
