    I think Miami might be better then we think. No, they didnt look good against us and we lost because of our mistakes, but as we all know we have a very good defense.

    I looked at there schedule and wow is it easy, so I dont know how much this means but I think we lost to the ACC Champions. I really believe we can win every game remaining on the schedule...of course the dawgs make me nervous but you never know in that game!

    SEC EAST CHAMPS???? See yall in the ATL!!!!

    Yes Miami is a good team, we are better, there is no shame in losing to a team that is better than you, they are not better than us, we had the wrong QB playing and we couldn't overcome the mistakes he made

    Yea I'd agree Miami is a good team--


    We just didn't overcome the adversity on the field, yea that and our turnovers-

    Would have been a very different game with Murph in the game.

    I agree. With Tyler at QB Driskel once back will be second string.

    So because their schedule is easy they are a good team?

    We should have dominated them. Our offense is not very potent, they out-executed us, so we lost.

    No. I said I know that their schedule is easy, but I also think that they have some talent.

    Yes we should have dominated them...turnovers will stop domination!

    I think our offense will be okay. We dont need an oregon offense, just a tough group of running backs and a smart qb who plays smart!

    USF is terrible but credit where credit is due, they crushed a terrible opponent...something we really haven't done since 2011.

    Our offense will be about what its been. Until we start to push ourselves a bit more for improvement, picking up 3rd and longs, throwing the ball down the field, getting the backups reps, etc we will continue to just do what we do.

    They are ranked 15. But after this weekend they will be close to a top 10 ranking.

    Oh no......please not a build up of Miami now. UF had no business losing the game to that team. It was not a good loss.

    I have a feeling Miami will lose to some crappy ACC teams which will make our loss to them look even worse. Other than us, their other three wins have been against total crap. Seriously. Three teams with a combined 2 wins among them. That loss really, really sucked.

    So you want us to look worse? The better Miami is this year, the less we'll be penalized for the L.

    How will we seriously be penalized? I try to be optimistic, but I don't see a national title this year, and I doubt we get through the season with fewer than three losses. I hate Miami. I hope they go 4-8 and even lose to the SOW.

    You may be right that it won't matter. Watching Georgia & LSU today didn't give me much hope. But I've never gotten the impulse to downplay teams we lose to. Just makes us look worse. Besides, I agree with the OP that Miami actually is pretty good. No, they're not "back" yet or anything, but Golden seems to know what he's doing.

    The only reason we lost to Miami is all those damn turnovers.

    We didn't get beat by Scum, we beat ourselves.

    There is shame in losing to Miami. We beat ourselves with the turnovers. Yes, Miami is decent but we are better, much better.

    We beat ourselves plain and simple. I think most would agree with me, put TM at qb and we win easily. Sometimes we get so up for rivalry games that we lose focus or do dumb stuff to hurt ourselves. Miami is a descent team but we gave the game away.
