In 81 days, one of our longest-running, most hated rivals comes to Lane for what (depending on realignment, scheduling, etc.) could be the last time in a long time. Consider this an early "Hatin' On..." thread.
Each year, we get this force-fed helping of Hurricane Helper, served up by anyone with contributor credentials to a blog. Some of the ACC media have more Ibis-wearing, rented-stadium players on the All-ACC team than any other school.
Which of these have we heard before:
(a) (Insert New Head Coach) understands the history of natty's and Miami culture
(b) Loaded with Florida five-stars (FFS)
(c) The Coastal is down this year so the path runs thru Miami.
(d) The QB is Heisman-level and will thrive under (insert OC here).
(e) The defense returns X starters and benefits from (insert DC here)'s scheme.
Athlon Sports picks Miami to win Coastal It's a new era at Miami with Mario Cristobal returning home and incoming investments in the program for needed facility and staff enhancements. After winning the offseason, the 'Canes can add to that momentum with a Coastal Division title in '22.
The U's defense allowed 28.4 ppg last season and couldn't tackle a 5th-grade flag football RB, but is only mentioned as an "area for improvement." The Ibis is a mascot, not the prototype LB you want from the S & C program.
Don't get me wrong - the ACC and VT need Miami to be better.
I (for one) just get sick and tired of everyone jumping on the Miami bandwagon.
That thing has more miles than a for-sale 2001 Hertz Chevy Impala.
Now that I think about it - 2001 is the last time Chevy's sedans and the U were both relevant...
We need to absolutely curb-stomp them in Lane on October 15th.
I hope we sell out, and introduce Tyler Van Dyke to the Terrordome...
