Tough to expect Miami to compete in the lowly ACC after only year 2.. Why would you expect to be competitive. Gee... Urban Meyer only won the dominant SEC and National Championship in year 2. Why would you expect an ACC team to do that !!! You never did expect it and shame on you if you did.

Suggestion... dump Shannon, recruit Charlie Strong to coach (not that he would take the job) and build a program of class !!

Maybe in a few years... Miami can compete with the soft ACC teams... even compete with the Gators without crying about a fieldgoal !!!
Miami... see yourself for what you are !!! A second tier ACC school.. maybe a third tier bowl game. duh... U.

The ACC- the ALMOST COMPETITIVE CONFERENCE. Miami the Diamond Bowl in Frisco is waiting - you know Diamond Walnuts!

IF THEY DON"T MAKE IT TO TAMPA???? Are you nucking futz? That was the worst display from a Miami team in a "big" game I can ever remember. It wasn't a matter of energy or focus; THEY WERE OUTMANNED AND OUT COACHED. The wins were way overrated. Wins over teams that are mediocre at best. Marve; he's another Kyle Wright. The defense can't tackle. Always out of position and taking wrong angles. the receivers are the worst by far at UM since the 70's. And the offense is putrid. they got what they deserved in Atlanta; exposed. The Canes are back my aze.

the ACC is on par with Pop -Warner peewee football. Shannon is way over his head, and the cane players are punks.

oh I forgit, day be soldja's.....

"We were frustrated because we know we are better than that," said Hurricanes linebacker Glenn Cook.
What a stupid comment. You're better than you played?!

It happens when you play primarily freshmen. Couple of things needs to happen though, first the whole secondary needs to spend the offseason in the weight room and have tackling drills every day. It's getting tiring to see our secondary looking like a bunch of 2nd graders trying to tackle a WR. How many times have you see a reciever or RB stiff arm are secondary guys to the ground? Also by next year pick one QB,ESPN had it right they have no offensive identity, 4th and a foot and they go to a no back spread formation? Team needs some consistency on the O side. Just keep in mind they will finish with 7 wins and get a bowl that is still alot of improvement from last year.

This team is two years away from beating a solid ranked team. The jury is out on the coaching staff. Must improve 100% in basics and "game preparation".

Youth or no youth. They just flooped. Shannon needs to decide on 1 QB and it ain't Marve.

Do you think GT lost any possible recruits from running up the score? Heck No!! Style points baby!!!! Coach Sharon looked more confused than his defense. Another UM embarrassment in a weak conference! Randy needs to brush up that resume!!!

Well, since yesterday's column was about how "well behaved" the "yew" has been this year--

I say they are deserving of a bid in the Humanitarian Bowl!!!!

Superb effort on national TV...I'm sure potential 4-5 star recruits everywhere were impressed, huh coach??...

LOL

The Yellow Jackets took UM to the shed and beat them like they stole something. WOW! The Canes are nowhere near being back!! Still no QB!

This is typical of a classless Cane fan, indicative of why the stands are always half empty at their games.
