Gators win, and I'll take a straight up bet on that any day!
I'm pretty sure this is the first time we are playing them in that crappy stadium that the Dolphins play in (which is 22 miles from their campus)
It will be 60/40 at most in there from what I understand.
We won't be intimidated by home field...
One of the things I hate most is when fans say fans cant overlook a team.
The last 9 times we've played Miami away from Gainesville .. the Canes won 7.
Look it up.
Socraticsilence, I guess it is "normal enough" for us. Great Talent and great coaching will find a way to score. I am hoping we wipe away all the problems we have had on offense for three years. I guess a lot of Gator fans want more on offense. Driskel I hope can make this diverse offense work, if he struggles, then we will just grind the the ball on the ground. On these forums we can only comment, only the coaches can change what we do. Last year the coaching was good enough to surprise everyone, this year we need to keep getting better.
The season is close and time to nut up. Miami reminds me of louisville, a team needing a booster for their egos, hopefully we play well and can move the ball/score. If we can't put up points on Miami, we are in for a long year.
I am not completely dismissive of the Canes this year, but let's be real - those were much different Canes teams back in those days.
Orange and Blue glasses almost everywhere! I hope this mindset is justified and we just walk over everyone. But somehow I do not think so. I believe we will have a fight on our hands in just about every game. After all everyone gets up for the Gators and gives us their
best. Not too many gimmes on our slate.
So you're saying that we're due? Gotcha!
As a Gator .. and as a fan .. I think we beat Miami in a fairly close game.
As a relatively objective observer of college football .. I see a very close game that could go either way.
If I put $$ on the game I bet Florida .. but I won't give points.
Kind of a weird way to look at it, you are including 3 games not played at their home stadium.
The last 9 times we've played at their home stadium the Gators won 5.
In the last 5 games played at Miami .. since 1979 .. the Canes are 4-1.
If you want to go back before that .. knock yourself out.
It depends how you look at it. The polls had oregon ranked higher than us. I don't consider that respect. We should have been ranked higher than them. When it comes down to it the respect that really matters is that of the voters of the polls.
The schedule is not fair to the fans that want the NC. The fans that want to be entertained do find the schedule enjoyable. I for one want a schedule that is on par with the rest of the nation which would call for a much easier schedule and a better road to the NC.
I don't care so much about the rest of the nation. I figure if we win the SEC, we'll get our shot.
But I do want relatively equitable roads to Atlanta.
When a couple of teams (Bama and UGA) consistently get easier schedules than all the other schools contending for their divisions, that is no good.
Which is why I am a fan of telling the SEC to shove it.
It is pretty meaningless no matter where you go back, you are talking about games played in the 80's. We have played there once in the last 20 years and it took an epic meltdown on our part for them to win.
I think UF should beat Miami by about the same score as FSU did last year, 33-20.
Like so many of UF's games under CWM, game willbe close for 35-40 minutes.
UM's defense is still severely undermanned, UF's offense should have a good to very good day v UM's D. just not a lot of talent on D in Coral Gables, esp. in the front 7.
My one concern is UF's DL versus UM's running game, UM TB Johnson is very good, and UF's DL is unsettled right now, we lost a lot. Best DTs are undersized and could get mauled.
I am not worried about UM's passing game, UF is loaded in the secondary, and even with the loss of Jenkins and Bostic, I like it that UF has a lot of LBs that have been here a bit, think UF will mold Kitchens, Taylor, Ajagbe, Ball, Powell and Morrison into a solid unit.
Um's QB throws up a ton of prayers, think UF has a 3+ int day if they can slow the run down
So says the cherry picker. You started with the arbitrary "nine games away" data.
I expect the Miami game to be an uncomfortably close win. These opening ACC-SEC match ups tend to go that way. It's later in the year when the rivalry games come that the ACC usually gets hammered back to obscurity.
And it's their lower-tier teams' tendency to lose to SunBelt and C-USA that bring comic relief.
But a decent Miami at home will give a fight. The noon start is better for the road team. For anyone who is going, don't let their fans bait you into a fight.
