I'll go on the record and say the Hokie's lose this week. It's going to be a low scoring game, something like 14-10 or 17-13. Lots of ball control and smash mouth football.

VT blew out a decent Ga-Tech team. then beat a pretty good BC team pretty easy last week.

Coming from a huge miami fan, I dont see us beating them in their house. our offense is still too shaky. Yes they are overrated but we are too. But, as Berman says "that's why they play the game" I say 21-17 VT with a big play on special teams deciding it. :(

I say Miami wins 21-6

which brings me to my debate on Miami and VT, Some sports writers think that VT has passed Miami as a better team and as a bigger dynasty but I don't agree. Miami has more national titles, and more Big East/ACC titles in the past 10 or so years. So how is it that VT is the better dynasty?

nick1
11-04-2005, 11:41 AM
How is VT the better team? even this year? Moss is better than Humes or whoever their back is, Wright has more potential as a passer than Vick and Hester is much better than whoever their returnman is. Those are a few ex. of why I say Miami is better this year and will be better next year.

Miami will be a powerhouse over the next few years or so. Wright will be coming into his own and Moss will be back next year. Olsen will be a Cane for at least another year. Kenny Philips will be a Cane for two or three more years and is already good as a freshman.

VT is not better than Miami. Who has the #1 D in the nation? who has the better RB? who has the better KR/PR?

those are the things that matter most in a close defensive game. this game will be won by the better rushing team and the team with the better special teams.

Actually the #1 SCORING D (which is all that matters) is VT.

"The Hokies have the nation's No. 1 scoring defense (9.13), while the Hurricanes are No. 1 in total defense and have allowed just 10.86 points per game. "

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/writers/john_walters/11/03/weekend.pickoff/index.html

This game will feature TWO GREAT Defenses and two mediocre offenses. I think VT wins it because they will feed off of the crowd.

Miami lost that game. FSU didn't win it they simply allowed Miami to lose it. Miami missed two FGs and miss held another FG and with any of those FGs made the game would have been tied. FSU lost that game as far as I'm concerned

Miami has the better RB, TE, WRs, KR/PR, and also has the better D. I say Miami beats VT by a large margin and then the world sees that VT is not ahead of Miami as a franchise/dynasty.

Miami gives up less yards a game and averages slightly less yards a game on offense. Miami will win with dominate D. Wright has just the right stuff to beat the VT D. His mobility in the pocket will be deadly against VT

it's over 20-0, with the way Miami is playing right now on D there's no way VT comes back.

The Canes are much better than I thought. Best D in the country. We would kill Texas. The NC should be USC vs Miami, the best offense vs the best defense.

i'm unbanned! FREEDOM!!

seriously i don't even care if the dolphins lose. the vatech game made my week, probably even my year in football

miami completely dominated vatech. vick showed us why he sucks. when there's no threat to run, he has chance of quarterbacking. very similar to his brother. lol, he was throwing up long passes just because. miami was playing simple cover 2 man and it completely befuddled him. lol i love it...the same would happen to vince young against miami, btw

both of miami's lines outperformed both of vatech's lines easily. winston was a beast and his draft stock shot up again after a pretty average year before this. wright was very good. he converted 3rd downs, he didn't turn the ball over (well, not in any critical situation), and made great decisions with the ball in his hands. jimmy williams was pretty disappointing. he played the basic NFL out-passes pretty poorly, and i'm thinking more and more about him being a safety. speaking of corners, how bout maxey and jennings? man, what a time to shine for these guys....rocky mcintosh was everywhere, kenny phillips played BEAUTIFULLY as a cover safety, and all 10 or so guys in that d-line rotation were excellent. truly the best defense in the country

miami won the special teams battle, kicking two field goals and getting a few touchbacks on kickoffs from monroe, as well as some decent punts from him. losing hester didn't turn out to be much of a loss, and he'll probably be back next week

i knew immediately that tyrone moss got hurt on that play, but i didn't panic. the way the line was playing and the evident talent we have in our backups was more than enough to run the ball effectively against vatech's overrated defense. did vatech's linebackers do ANYthing??

miami looks damn good, and it was great to see kyle wright (and kirby freeman) not succumb to the pressure of the biggest game of the year. in fact, wright's best games this year have been on the road against FSU and vatech. gotta like that!

the loss to FSU looks horrible right now, but that's the way college is setup. if miami doesn't play in the rose bowl, they have no one to blame but themselves. guess we gotta hope for texas/usc/alabama to lose now

Texas has a great running game and Vince Young is becoming better as a passer. USC struggles against mobile QBs and Young is extremely mobile. Texas has a good D as evidenced by the high-powered Texas Tech offense getting only 17 on them.

I just hope that one of the two teams lose. Actually I would love to see Texas lose because then we can see how good the USC offense really is against the #1 D in the nation. I think USC is overrated, How can Stanford score 21 points on a top ten team? USC displayed their bad D.

Kyle Wright should pick up the offense and have Miami scoring alot more points really soon. Miami is claerly the best team in the nation in my opinion, who else would hang 27 points on VT with their KR/PR and RB out 3 quarters of the game and with their QB out 1 quarter of the game. Either VT was largely overrated or Miami was really underrated

Sorry nick, but you're wrong. USC would RAPE Texas. Big 12 schools are overrated and make great whipping boys for the NC. Look at Oklahoma and Nebraska the last few years. Seriously, who's worth a damn in that conference this year besides Texas? We should all be pulling for a Texas loss so we don't have to watch another National Championship debacle. USC-Miami would be the dream matchup: Top 2 talented teams in the country, pitting Best O against Best D.

Gotta root against Texas and Bama. Sadly, I think Texas might run the table. Just seems like Vince Young has glavanized them mentally. All they've got left is Kansas and Texas A&M, both 5-4. USC played three ranked opponents. So they could lose. Bama has LSU and Auburn. So that's also a possibiliy.

I worry about the loss of Moss. That guy was the truth. But Miami's DL was just DOMINANT last night. They showed how you beat a Vick. USC's OL vs. Miami's DL would be the dream matchup.

What are you basing that on? Miss Cleo? The only mobile QB they played this year was Washington's Isaiah Stanback & he didn't do anything. Don't make things up you haven't seen.


I think USC is overrated, How can Stanford score 21 points on a top ten team? USC displayed their bad D.

Because once you get up by 40, a couple TDs at the end of the game don't matter. USC's defense plays when they have to.

they've played scrubs all year long, nothing changes, could be upset by A&M or Colorado

We'll be #4 in the BCS behind USC, Texas, & Alabama. Here are the remaining schedules of each:

USC:
@Cal
Fresno St
UCLA

all were ranked at the beginning of the week & so USC has a tough road.

Texas:
Kansas
@Texas A&M
probably Colorado in the Big 12 championship

they've played scrubs all year long, nothing changes, could be upset by A&M or Colorado

Alabama:
LSU
@Auburn
probably Georgia in the SEC championship

toughest schedule remaining. I think they'll lose 2 of them.


It all comes down to if someone can upset USC or Texas. I truly hope it's Texas because they don't belong.



If alabama, texas and usc go undefeated, Alabama and USC should definitly be playing for the National championship.

by the way, congrats to miami, was definitly wrong bout the game....i guess we are going to meet in the ACC championship game. cant wait, hopefully FSU can step up there play.

Commentary is up, someone needs to validate it (Muckster! :)) A large part of it is what you guys have brought up, but I have different feelings about Texas from most of you. Please don't give me trashy ratings when you disagree...I think the article will make for good conversation fodder and I want people to read it. So all of you college football folks, pay attention!

Coker did say that he thinks Charlie Jones will be the best Cane RB ever.
meh, coaches say that all the time. jones looks good, but NOTHING compared to james or mcgahee. more portis-like

i think that it actually hurt vt when moss got hurt. moss runs more like a bowling ball and that plays into vt's hands. jones has good lateral movement and a great burst, which can make overlyaggressive defenses pay, and he did. great performance by the U on saturday, they kicked some serious arse.

Sorry nick, but you're wrong. USC would RAPE Texas. Big 12 schools are overrated and make great whipping boys for the NC. Look at Oklahoma and Nebraska the last few years. Seriously, who's worth a damn in that conference this year besides Texas? We should all be pulling for a Texas loss so we don't have to watch another National Championship debacle. USC-Miami would be the dream matchup: Top 2 talented teams in the country, pitting Best O against Best D.
If you say so, I'm pulling for someone to lose so Miami can climb into the title game

What are you basing that on? Miss Cleo? The only mobile QB they played this year was Washington's Isaiah Stanback & he didn't do anything. Don't make things up you haven't seen.
It's not about the stats that the QB puts up rushing but it's about what the mobility creates. Look at Brady Quiin who is mobile. He absoluely tore apart the USC D and why? because he could move around and create things.

I have to admit, I was wrong. UM played great. Their oline just punished VTech's D. No one can say UM did not deserve that win... they dominated. Congrats, UM.

Brady Quinn is marginally mobile, he's more like T. Brady in where he moves well in the pocket when feeling the rush. Do you consider T. Brady mobile? Great Pocket presence..yes..mobile..not really.

yeah, i'm sure every defensive coordinator's nightmare is when brady quinn decides to run the ball

a USC-Miami showdown would get so much more publicity than any other matchup right now, the #1 D in the nation against one of the most dangerous offensive teams in the nation
