    1. Sun Life Stadium seats a little more than 74,000. What percentage of Saturday’s Florida-Miami crowd do you expect will be Gators?

    2. What do you think are the two keys for Florida’s defense to shut down the Miami offense?

    3. Will the lack of a decision from the NCAA Committee on Infractions serve as a hindrance to the Hurricanes or will it serve as motivation on Saturday?

    1. 65% Canes, 35% Gators

    2. Contain Duke Johnson and pressure Morris, preferably with our front 4 and not having to blitz. Everyone's talking about Duke and Morris but no one is really talking about Miami's WR corps, they've got some big, fast guys who will test our secondary.

    3. They seem to be handling business well despite the clowns at the NCAA not dropping a ruling, I don't think it'll play a big part in how they approach Saturday's game. But there will be a lot at stake in terms of recruiting, bragging rights and just 2 schools that don't like each other so they'll be motivated by that.

    1. 60/40 Canes.

    2. A. Control the line of scrimmage; B. Force turnovers.

    (Pretty much the same as every game)

    3. Not relevant unless a ruling comes down on Friday (and it won't).

    1. UM tried to maintain home field advantage by giving UF fewer visitors tickets than league rules require, but their advantage will be minimal. Due to StubHub and the greater buying power of the UF fanbase, I expect the percentage of Gator fans to be as high as 40%. And yes I will be one of them.

    2. That one seems fairly obvious - one, key on Duke Johnson and force Stephen Morris to throw, and two, rely on our secondary to execute. Because Morris CAN throw.

    3. Total non-factor.

    1) 60/40 canes

    2) Stop Duke .. Confuse and pressure Morris .. expect them to use the screen a lot

    3) None although it would be great to have the NCAA announce it on Friday

    1) 65%-35% Canes

    2) Pressure on Morris and being to keep Miami from the deep ball

    3) I don't think it will matter what is happening with the NCAA for this game. This has been going on for so long that it's almost just part of the way it is these days.

    1) 60% Miami Dade Community College current or past students, 5% true Miami fans, and 35% Gators

    2) Nothing too earth shattering...1) Extreme pressure on the QB 2) Shadow Duke Johnson everywhere he goes. He has about 15-20 plays so it shouldn't be too exhausting.

    3) No effect whatsoever.

    70% Canes, 30% Gators. Kinda like 2003.

    Stuff the run and force the QB to beat you with his arm against our stout secondary.

    Neither. They have a game to play. So do we, and we shouldn't take it for granted. Miami should have a good team this year.

    50/50 show out, white-out will look stupid

    Miami's O-Line cannot handle our Defense, so expect 3 and out, which will leave their defense on the field longer. Especially with our style of offense. Our defense will get rest, our offense will control tempo.

    Miami will be deflated by halftime.

    34-10 UF

    1. 60/40 Canes, but the "white out" will give away their weak fan support.

    2. Agree with others who think we control the LOS and our defense mostly keeps the Canes offense in check. 31-13 Gators.

    3. Zero impact from NCAA.
