Canes Ranked Again in Coaches Poll

Canes Ranked Again in Coaches Poll

Miami is 25th following their bye week Following a week off, the Miami Hurricanes find themselves once again ranked in the Coaches Poll, up to 25th following losses by Colorado and Cincinnati. Previously unranked in the Coaches, the Canes still find themselves way down in the AP, with only 34 points via voting. As was said last week, when Miami was unranked in both polls, the Canes have much larger things to worry about than the number next to their name. Votes will come and that number will continue to shrink as long as the this team finds ways to win games. If Miami wins out and is in...

GameThread: Mississippi State-LSU (and other primetime games)

A matchup between ranked teams highlights the primetime viewing window this weekend The early games are done, and now it’s time for Primetime. There are 2 games leading the way in this late window: Mississippi State Bulldogs at LSU Tigers, and Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars. We’ve seen them up close and personal this year, but LSU is 6-1 (including a win over then-ranked Miami) and ranked 5th in America. Mississippi State, on the other hand, is 4-2 and looking to catch LSU slippin’ after their big win against Georgia last weekend. This should be a dogfight, with plenty of...

Florida College Football Power Rankings: Week 8

Florida College Football Power Rankings: Week 8

The Hurricanes fall while the Gators rise. Week 7 was crazy for the Florida teams. While multiple teams survived late game scares, the Miami Hurricanes fell with mismanagement and offensive struggles. With such, the week 8 game sees important games in deciding positioning in the respective conferences. #1. UCF Knights (LW: 1), Week 7 Result: 31-30 W @ Memphis, Next Week: @ East Carolina The UCF Knights are the best team in Florida, point blank. Despite trailing 30-17 at halftime, the Knights were able to completely control the second half of the game and complete the 13 point second half...

Canes are on a bye this week, which means we’re 100% rootin’ against....uh....for...ACC teams this weekend What’s good, Canes fam? No, we’re not here to talk about Canes stuff, we’re here to set the slate of ACC games, and figure out who Miami fans should root for. Or against. Same thing, really. It’s a light week in the ACC this week, with 6 teams, include the Canes, on their bye weeks, and the other 8 teams playing each other. So yeah, only 4 games on this week’s rooting guide.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Where Do We Go From Here?

The Catastrophe in Charlottesville revealed some ugly truths For about a year now, we were certain Miami had turned a page in it’s revitalization, the next step in a progressive plan to return The U to national championship contention. Now, adding number six ought to be the furthest thing from anyone’s mind. Mark Richt must answer a very real question before the season is over; is he worthy of being the head coach of the Miami Hurricanes? Miami’s loss to UVA was the first moment I truly considered whether Richt is up to the task of guiding Miami through the rough patches of rebuilding...

What’s wrong with every team in the Coastal division

What’s wrong with every team in the Coastal division

Almost every team in the Canes’ division has a shot at the ACC title game because they’re all flawed Not only has this been a far from ideal season so far for the Canes, but also for the ACC in general. Clemson has been the flagbearer for the conference for over 3 years now, and everyone else has been chasing their standard. Miami took a step in that direction last season, although it was clear that they were still way behind from a coaching and talent standpoint. Coming into 2018, Miami appeared poised to take another step closer to Clemson, although that assessment was quickly shot...

Resetting Our Expectations Post-Virginia

Resetting Our Expectations Post-Virginia

The dust has (partly) settled since Miami’s loss at Virginia, let’s re-evaluate our expectations of this season.  Fans have lobbied for a new offensive coordinator, another quarterback change, and even a head coaching change - all of which are unlikely. With this in mind, what can we expect of the ‘Canes by the end of the 2018-19 season? With a long, painful bye week underway, Mark Richt and the ‘Canes have more than enough time to prepare for Boston College. Confidence is low, unfortunately, as Malik Rosier is back leading the offense, along with N’Kosi Perry failing his first...
