Go Terps! Thanks to the Maryland upset of North Carolina today, my Miami Hurricanes are completely in control of their own destiny in the ACC. If we can beat Georgia Tech and North Carolina State then we’ll likely be getting a rematch with FSU in the ACC title game. We actually have a legitimate shot at making it to the Orange Bowl this year. At the start of the year, particularly after coming out of the gates 2-3, I may have hoped for a BCS bowl appearance, but I never thought it was a realistic possibility with this young team. Yet, here were are now in the driver’s seat in our division of the ACC. We still have some tough games ahead of us, especially next Thursday at Georgia Tech, but I’m just thrilled that we’re in this position and am excited about the possibility about being a National Power again within the next 2-3 years. It’s all about the “U”!
Ah, yet another loss in the lowly ACC conference and against our arch-rival Florida State Seminoles. This is going to be a long and painful season of watching Miami Hurricanes football and we’ll likely finish near the bottom of the conference again. BUT, I am TREMENDOUSLY happy with the fact that the team finally showed some heart in the 2nd half and the 4th quarter. The kids were down huge at the half but didn’t run away scared with their tales between their legs. Instead, they fought extremely hard in the 2nd half and were in the fight till the very end only to lose 41-39.
They were sloppy and made so many mistakes throughout the game, but this team is so young that I’ve come to grips with the fact that I need to expect those things. What impresses me is the tremendous amount of talent I see from our freshmen and the fact that they never gave up in this game. I’m proud of my baby Canes. It’s, still, all about the “U”!
