    I expected some folks to pick Miami but damn, it seems like everyone I see is picking them to win.
    What am I missing here???
    I expected maybe half of them to go with UM, but damn, it seems everyone is going with them...
    What gives??

    And all of them call it an upset. Sorry, but it's only an upset if most people don't expect it.

    Doesn't matter. Herbie was more confident in a Toledo win last week than pretty much any other team. That doesn't make it right.

    We very well may lose, but we have a very good team and should come out with the W.

    I think the pressure is on Miami to PROVE they are "back".

    Who are "ALL" these experts you refer to picking the Canes? I see 6/7 at CBS picking us and 2/2 at Yahoo/Rivals. Oh ya, all the books in Vegas have us favored by 2.5 to 3. So, where are you looking? Obviously not "all" the experts side with the Canes.

    What constitutes a expert? The so called experts are full of $^1# IMO.

    There's also a simple rule when it comes to experts..

    When they pick against the Gators, they are moronic.

    When they pick the Gators, they are geniuses.

    It's really pretty simple...

    I've only seen one person in the media pick against us, actually.

    I would hope they would all pick against us.

    So when we win they'll believe it was a major win and move us up even more

    The whole ESPN schtick sucks. It is fluff, very little insight IMO. Stopped wasting my time them years ago.
