    #19 Miami Hurricanes

    [​IMG]

    Miami's season could have been far different than last year's disappointing 9-4. A two point loss to Virginia Tech followed by a listless effort against Rutgers in the Champs Sports Bowl left Miami outside the Top 25 and down to a 4 star prestige.

    Optimism is abound though as a new season begins. Miami's passing attack should be lethal with Senior QB Jacory Harris at the controls and a stable of talented WR's headlined by LaRon Byrd and Travis Benjamin. A rugged defense is anchored by Marcus Forston at DT and a secondary loaded with future NFL draft picks. However, the schedule is treacherous as always. The Canes have to go on the road to face #7 Florida, #20 Iowa, #13 Florida St, and #9 Virginia Tech as well as host #14 Georgia Tech

    Prediction: 10-2, 7-1 ACC

    Miami 23- Florida 34

    Soxandgators prevails in a wild shootout with the scoring coming primarily off big plays rather than sustained drives. For the Canes, third WR Aldarius Johnson exploded for 203 yards and 2 TD's. However, an awful fourth quarter in which the defense surrendered 24 points was Miami's downfall.

    Miami 59- Maryland 14

    The Canes came back with a vengeance after last week's loss at rival Florida. On the road again against Maryland, Miami put on an aerial show with Jacory Harris throwing for 459 yards and 5 touchdowns. Three Miami wideouts had over 120 yards receiving in the rout.

    Miami 35- Iowa 13

    Miami finished off their third straight road game to open the season with a dominant victory at #20 Iowa. While the offensive attack was a bit more balanced this time, Jacory Harris still threw for 414 yards and 4 TD's. Iowa was unable to sustain drives as they converted just two third down attempts all game.

    Miami 21- Boston College 17


    Down 17-7 on the road heading into the 4th quarter, Miami's season was at a very early turning point. The Hurricanes came storming back with two fourth quarter touchdown drives and a goalline stand as time expired to prevail over the Eagles. BC was unable to convert three passes inside the five yard line, including the final play as time expired that was bobbled in the back corner of the end zone. TE Chase Ford had a career day for Miami with 7 catches for 95 yards and a TD.

    Miami 30- Duke 20


    A sloppy effort from Miami kept this one from being an absolute blowout. Three promising drives to open the game all ended in field goals and some late defensive gaffes made things relatively interesting. The win improved the Canes record to 5-1.

    Miami 14- FSU 35

    The score here is very deceiving as the game was close throughout. Late in the third Miami had the ball down 21-14 and all the momentum on their side. However, Coach CKamm1 made the error of punting on fourth and short in FSU territory and just a few plays later FSU RB Thomas took it to the house for a 29 yard score. The always arrogant Hurricanes told the FSU players after the game to expect a different result if they meet in the ACC Championship game.

    Miami 42- Georgia Tech 14

    Just what the doctor ordered for a Miami team coming off a tough loss to rival FSU- an absolute thrashing of divisional foe GT. The Canes hurry up offense combined with Coach CKamm's best impersonation of Jimmy Johnson running up the score, Jacory Harris threw for a whopping 625 yards and 4 TDs. WR LaRon Byrd was Harris' main weapon on the day catching 10 passes for 254 yards and a TD.

    Miami 42- UNC 30

    Jacory Harris continued his pillaging of ACC secondaries with another 550 yards passing this week. UNC hung tough but their inability to the Miami air show was their undoing. The Canes improve to 6-2 and can pretty much clinch the Coastal Division with a win over VT next week.
