    plenty of people thought this would be a blowout in our favor.

    as expected, it was a close, hard-fought rivalry game. you'd think after getting slapped around in the sugar bowl people would start looking at opposing teams objectively. nope. all you heard was how we were going to blow them out and how their defense sucked last year so was gonna suck again this year and how our powerful SEC line was gonna dominate. give miami credit. i've been saying all summer long this game scared me.

    time to re-focus and get ready for the SEC slate.

    Bottom line is that our offense was terrible. Primarily quarterback play.

    How about looking at your OWN team objectively

    with a decent gameplan they win by 2 tds? this had nothing to do with Miami being a good team to be afraid of.. they had negative yards for about 8 series in a row

    413 yards to 212. Not sure the fans were all that "dumb".

    tell me genius, what part of "we're gonna blow them out and win 31-10" is a smart prediction?
    what part of "miami won't even score a TD" is logical?

    what part of "nobody in the hurricanes would even start for us" is logical?

    at some point logic and common sense has to be applied. other teams have talent that we fail to recognize because we walk around thinking we're the best thing walking. nothing wrong with having confidence - but within reason.

    Of course it's "illogical" in hindsight. Amazing, you can call previous predictions erroneous, like some sort of reverse Nostradamus.

    Again, this would have been impressive had you called out these "dumb" predictions before the end of the game.

    There was a decent gameplan but we had our backs I saw being dragged down by arm tackles by guys 20lbs lighter than them. At least Demps and Rainey had an excuse. I saw a few runs Jones just had to break the first tackle and he would have been off to the races. That means they need to hit the weight room more or we need a new RB coach. Hell run downfield, run over some people. Throw in our QB who would overthrow balls and throw interceptions to tacking dummies a nd well you have this debacle. Miami was a slightly better version of Tennessee or Vanderbilt, no world beaters. I think today was the beginning of the end for WM. The Sugar Bowl and then this. Poor execution, players losing their cool, penalties, hell we can't even get the right sets onto the fields

    I predict we will continue our rash of penalties.

    I predict other teams will stuff our running game and we will be in trouble passing.

    I predict our O will continue to squander great field position with run run pass.

    I predict we will win the TOP stat which of course is what WM loves.

    I predict more interceptions to come.

    I predict Winston in one game is far supperior to JD who's a jr.

    I predict more L's to come.

    I predict if UL were to play us same result. Sugar Bowl was no fluke

    A prediction is just that, a prediction. Miami has a lot of talent but we have even more talent. Had we not turned the ball over the game would have been 20 something to 7. They had 14 points off of turnovers.

    A prediction of 31-10 is not illogical by any means even after watching that game. Our defense dominated, our offense had double their yards. Add a red zone offense, take out the turnovers and that's the score.

    They ran 54 plays, held the ball for only 21 minutes, went 1-11 on 3rd down, ran for only 49 yards. Objectively speaking the coaches and QB gave this game away to a significantly inferior team.

    2 for 6 in the redzone is a major problem the staff has yet to figure out from last year. We were the most disorganized offensively in the games biggest moments. Very disappointed in the staff.

    Fans don't have anything to do with anything.
    Is that clear?

    What everyone should be focused on is where is program is going. There are some serious issues that aren't quick fixes.
