    Redshirt Freshmen have the advantage of being part of the program and the chance to practice with the team while learning the plays. True freshmen don't have that advantage. Johnny Football won it as a redshirt freshman. I view his winning much like Tebow's winning it as a sophmore.

    If we lose to Miami, I seriously doubt we're beating South Carolina & LSU on the road.
    Everything starts with a win in Coral Gables...otherwise it will be a very long season.

    Miami should be much better this year.

    I think we should have the advantage at the LOS, but agree it will likely be a tough game.

    I think it was Alex Brown that said, "Time don't make talent; talent make talent."

    Miami leads the series and has a sizable win advantage in home games. The talk on this subject reminds me of the comments made about playing Louisville in the our bowl gave.
    It is as if Louisville and Miami are some Pop Warner teams. I do not agree with the because "we are an SEC team and they are not" guarantees us a victory mentality. I also remember a lowly Bowling Green coming here and us escaping with a 27-14 hard fought win year before last. But then again everyone said I was wrong when I cautioned about the Dawgs.

    The Gators should prevail but that doesn't mean we will. Underestimating opponents is common as rain among college football fans.

    The good thing is I don't have to play the game. So, I can look at them as a less talented team that we should beat. The Gators will be fired up. I have no doubt they will take UM seriously.

    I wouldn't argue with that, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was less...closer to 3. Either way, I like the boys to cover.

    The GN has us as dogs against LSU, UGA and USCe. Favorites against UM, Mizzou, Arky, UK, Vandy and FSU.

    If you look at the most recent meetings in Miami, the Canes have been on top much of the time.

    December 2, 1978 Gainesville, FL Miami 22–21
    December 1, 1979 Miami, FL Miami 30–24
    November 29, 1980 Gainesville, FL Miami 31–7
    September 5, 1981 Miami, FL Miami 21–20
    September 4, 1982 Gainesville, FL Florida 17–14
    September 3, 1983 Gainesville, FL Florida 28–3
    September 1, 1984 Tampa, FL Miami 32–20
    September 7, 1985 Miami, FL Florida 35–23
    September 6, 1986 Gainesville, FL Miami 23–15
    September 5, 1987 Miami, FL Miami 31–4
    January 2, 2001 New Orleans, LA Miami 37–20A
    September 7, 2002 Gainesville, FL Miami 41–16
    September 6, 2003 Miami, FL Miami 38–33
    December 31, 2004 Atlanta, GA Miami 27–10B
    September 6, 2008 Gainesville, FL Florida 26–3

    In fact of the last five games in Miami, the Canes are 4-1.
    Again, all I'm saying is don't assume an easy victory for us down there.

    i'm not sure it's all that relevant to look at the last 15 games ...especially since those last 15 span FIVE decades!

    totally different times in the 80's for example. different venue for one thing.

    FSU is better then Miami. Miami is a tough matchup for UF for the same reason Louisville was a tough matchup. They have a competent offense and UF does not. Miami's defense is terrible and they don't have elite talent. I think they will be an above average team and probably win their division. I think FSU will be the tougher out and that gator fans seem to be over confident in that matchup despite being 1-2 against Fisher, based on one 5 turn over come from behind fourth quarter victory.

    Fisher beat us in Will's first year. Last year FSU couldn't hang with us for 4 quarters last year at Doak. This year it's in the Swamp and Will has it going. However, expectations of a Gator victory do not represent overconfidence. We will be prepared and show up! Playing Miami down there is a bit more of a mystery. We beat them in the Swamp with Tebow and a different coach. Much has changed down there and we need to be ready for anything from a team with a large ax to grind.
