You know, normally I'd say that Miami would roll USF, but given the quality of play over the last month or so, not to mention that USF is going to be fired up, I think it's going to be close.

i agree.

I expect it to be a good game. Normally i would be nervous but when we play games like this USF seems to step up to the challenge. We laid an egg against Rutgers but thats what we do when we play Big East teams. Pretty excited about this game. If we win and thats a BIG IF!!! It would be a successful year in my eyes even though we didnt win the Big East.

Beating Florida St. and Miami in the same year would be great for recruiting. Especially heading to next years showdown with Florida.

Wouldn't suprise me at all if South Florida beats us next Saturday. Shanzook just can't coah for ****. No idea how to motivate his players.He doesnt even play his best players. Miami is just a wreck.

Jacori Harris is good. But that's about it.

Harris is good? Have you watched the last few games?

He's regressed since that solid start to the year.

Agreed 100%

We're perpetually stuck mired in mediocrity. Today's game was alot closer than what was on the scoreboard.

I have not watched since the Oklahoma game. I'm not a college football fan. I was under the impression he was good.

Then why would you think Harris was the best player? Javarris James was the star of that game.

I watched the 4th quarter, and from what I saw, Harris played well.

Damien Berry is the best player on the field every Saturday. And I found out something today about Damien Berry that just set me on fire and I just wanted to break Shannon's neck. I'll have to post that later in the Hurricanes thread. Posting from my phone blows.

So, what you're saying is, you watched one quarter of one game a month and a half ago, and came to the conclusion that we currently have one good player? Thanks for the input.

Yeah, it's been very obvious this year that Damien Berry is the most talented tailback we have. I'd actually agree with you that he's the best offensive player on the team. Pretty sad for a guy who doesn't even get that much playing time.

Chill out, I plainly stated I'm not a big college football fan. Besides, I was mostly messing with JCane anyways.

Jacory I think is clearly hurt and is playing thru it. No question he has some stuff to work on this offseason, mentally and in terms of learning when to put some juice on a pass and not just living with that touch pass. Sometimes he is Pennington 2.0 (except for the carelessness) . . . and we all know the good and the bad with that.

Should be close but if either team wins big I think it will be USF. In the post game interviews yesterday the Canes players sounded like they were trying to talk themselves into being motivated for the USF game, saying all the right things but it seemed rehearsed not passionate. Meanwhile, USF will be in a frenzy, disrupting plays in the backfield.

Basically I think Miami is satisfied with what they've done and are subconsciously willing to throw in a stinker before preparing for the bowl game.

I can't remember talent at running back being an issue at Miami in years....not even in the Coker era...

The problem actually seemed like it was that they had TOO MANY RB's and no quarterback...

I think Harris is one of the few bright spots Miami's offense has had in several years.....and he IS Miami's best player on offense.....

Miami can still plug in RB's and win games.....they ain't winning **** without Jacory Harris.....and if he were to go down to injury.....you'd see just how bad the team REALLY is....

He needs to learn how to manage a game better and be more aware in situations....learn situational football....teach him to use his head more and his arm less...

Randy Shannon better get those boys ready or he's subject to find himself and the team in a deep hole by the time he wakes up halfway through the 2nd quarter...

I can't wait for this game. Been looking forward to this one for a while now. Hopefully the same goes for the Canes because it seems that they have been overlooking our opponents for a couple weeks. GO CANES!!!

This game scares the crap out of me.........the Canes of the last few years have usually quit by now. This would be the biggest win in the history of USF. The Canes better be ready!

yes it will not to mention alot of USF players get over looked by the bigger programs FL St. (BJ daniels) Florida (George Selvie) and we have a few players from the Miami area. They always bring their A game for games like this.

Canes came out with their hair on fire.....Hell I even saw Randy coaching over on the sidelines when he was chewing Campbell's *** out......and they still have all 3 timeouts.....

Kinda thought USF got a bad break on the fumble by Daniels....looked like his knee was down to me...

Canes taking advantage of USF's undersized...aggressive defensive line by pounding them with the run...

wow i want to apologize to all Miami fans for even thinking we could win this game. Granted we have a freshman QB with alot of potential but what hit me the most was how easy you guys were just pounding the ball on us. Congrats

I gotta say that I am definitely surprised that South Florida laid down the way they did. I'm not flaming but I really expected South Florida to pound on us and be in it late. I almost felt bad for the Bulls.

I had a blast though. Drunk as hell going into the stadium booing every opposing fan in sight lol. My first time ever in Raymond James. Nice stadium. Just can't believe the season is over. Hard to believe I went to every 'Canes game this season and it's all over. What the hell am I going to do with my weekends now?

You're forgiven.

BJ Daniels does look like he has a lot of potential, but also keep in mind he's the same age as Jacory. This game made me miss playing in the Big East. Although we looked the same against Ga Tech. Consistency is the biggest issue with the Canes right now. We have the talent to play with anyone. I'm real excited for next year. It was a real good sign to see us play strong the last game of the year. Today had 'letdown' written all over it, but we came out strong.

I'm looking forward to this being a good rivalry in years to come.

Great effort by the Canes. I was worried about a loss in this game all year and am thrilled it wasn't close to that. Seemingly every year we have 2-3 games with terrific intensity level and sure tackling on defense. This was one of them. Actually the margin could have been higher if Whipple had run the ball more, particularly early 3rd quarter.

USF needs to get bigger and more physical. That would allow them to limit the late season collapses. Miami certainly can deal with speed teams better than we match up with blue collar squads like Va Tech.

It's proper to play teams like USF and UCF, an investment in the future. Likewise, the Dolphins should be in the same division with Jacksonville and Tampa Bay. Location intensifies rivalries to exponential degree. I always laugh when Dolphin fans think games with Buffalo or New England are a big deal, compared to what it would be like facing Florida teams twice annually, and likewise there's no way the Canes are ever going to really care about annual opponents from North Carolina or nearby.

Bingo. We average what, close to one sellout a year? Schedule those guys every year, and it'll start bringing out more fans to the game.

i agree with that. USF has a huge student body, i believe is 8th in the nation. UCF is even bigger. I think they are top 5 in the nation when it comes to student body. Imagine where on a rotational basis Florida St. USF, UF, UCF, Miami would all play each other. Now thats Money and will intensify and create new rivalries.
