    I'm reading the smack on social media and the Canes are talking some chitlin con carne. You'd think they won the National Championship last year. I know we do our share of talking smack but jeez for a team that has been stinking up the place going against a top ten ranked team they got some serious Koolaid down there...

    It's what you get when 98% percent of your fan base has never stepped foot on the campus. Loudest, most obnoxious cretins carry the fan culture.

    Overall it is a weird fan base, not like any other we are used to. Miami is a strange place and the UM team is treated more like a pro team by Miami residents than a college. Not a lot of connection to the actual school.

    As for their optimism in our game, they are very confident in their defense, at least the front 7. I know in the past when we've had a strong front 7 we've felt like we can hang with anyone. The question is, how good are they really considering the competition they faced last year?

    Remains to be seen but doubtful they are top SEC caliber like we've faced. On the other hand they have big, strong, fast, experienced guys with a good defensive coach so Mullen and Franks are going to have to make them run the wrong way all night.

    I’d wait until 2023 and then cancel the upcoming home and home with them just to watch their heads explode.

    Kind of what I have been thinking and saying. The times I saw them they were very disruptive when Willis was in the game otherwise they looked very good but not like a defense that would win a game by itself.

    At least some of them went to college. Miami is almost strictly local dirt from the 305 that latched onto that ThugU persona they had when they were winning. They are a real classless bunch.

    Can't argue with that, but mutt fans are obsessed.

    To be fair to most of the mutt fans, they have no idea how to act since they've never won anything in their lifetime.:D

    I hope there won't be any viral videos of fights like we see every year from FSU Miami games

    Even in those it looks like the Miami fans are instigators.

    The lady who cleans my office told me today that her brother, a truck driver and Miami fan, came from Wyoming to see this game. It's big to their fans.

    Where does their confidence come from: they have won 5 of the last 6 and seem to have our number and we have lost several times after building a huge lead on them. Winning today will go a long way in reversing the mojo! Work 'em silly, Gators!

    Last UF v scUM game here in 2008 Cane fans were out in full force talking some major amounts of junk. Final score? Gators 26, Canes 3.

    Can't lie. Felt confident but due to PTSD from mac/champ years I'm still nervous until I see us consistently play 4 quarters of good football. Even in our last several games last year we started slow until the 2nd half
