Well, it's good to see they gave us a brake with Va. Tech, being at home. That was tough with UNC, FSU & Tech all on the road.

Hey Noobie, what about the Herb, I'm here! Geeze, I feel left out!

Get VT at home this year, at FSU. Good schedule overall really, 12-0 possible.

With a team like this, schedule is THE most important factor of the 2013 season. It looks very promising, doesn't it? And for the ACC, they need a national power. Now.

This team should absolutely sweep the Coastal.

- Virginia Tech strikes me as a team that reached its peak under Michael Vick. Solid program. It'll be competitive. But I also sense that UM passed them. They are weak in bowl games and vs. out of conference competition.
- Georgia Tech lives and dies under the option. Good luck.
- Duke is still a basketball first school, and lost its meaningful games.
- There is no reason to lose to UVA four years in a row. Not with Morris as your QB.
- UNC lost its best weapon to the NFL. The Butch Davis recruits are fading.

Sweep the Coastal. There is no excuse and no reason why we shouldn't.

Wake, Pittsburgh, and Florida State. Wake is weak and Pittsburgh loses their best weapon to the NFL. That's two more wins.

Our out of conference schedule (minus Florida) is CAKE.

So, am I crazy for seeing some daylight here? No Notre Dame. No Clemson. No Kansas State.

The ceiling is 11 wins. I absolutely believe that, and I'm being realistic. FSU loses E.J. Manuel and the Gators lost to Louisville. It is in the realm of possibility that UM (provided we improve on D) takes one of those games.

The floor is 8 wins.

My early prediction: Miami takes the Coastal and finishes somewhere in the 8-11 win range.

Call me crazy, but I see it...

... and that's pretty freaking sweet.

FSU's got the cream of the crop for there schedule. No G. Tech, No Va. Tech & no UNC.

UpNorthCane27

But FSU will lose to NCST, Virginia, and THE U!!!

Nice bro! We gotta meet up!

Schedule is with us, let's see how DNO does with the defence.

calGary Cane

No excuses for 2013?

FROM CFTALK ON TWITTER:

At least 67 underclassmen have now officially declared for the 2013 draft. Last year's total of 65 had been the record-high.

86Cane

CGNC is sticking with 9-3.

I am going with 10-2 for 2013.

Terrance Sullivan

Lb right on. I am going with 11-3 I am including ACC title game and bowl game. CGNC and 86 nice predictions.

Ohio_Cane

I'll wait to make my prediction once I see who is red-shirting, who is starting, how the UTough goes, etc.

Chris Freet‏@ChrisFreet

Interesting: @GoldenAl told @JoeRoseShow that he would love 4 football team to have title worthy 4x100 team. Dorsett & Duke prepping 4 track

86Cane

Just had a nice convo with Freet and Yandle from UM about Duke Johnson.

I told them that I had heard that Duke did not work out a lot before coming to Miami and that he was working mostly on natural talent last year. Yandle confirmed that he had heard the same thing.

I told them after a full offseason working with Swasey under UTough that he could REALLY explode this season. Duke is also running track with Dorsett on the 4 x 100 relay team (see above comment by Freet from Twitter.)

LB

If we were 8-4 and won a bowl game...

...I'd be on cloud nine. It's all about the bowl games for me. :)

I'm not sure about an actual win total prediction because of injury sake and due to the fact that the 2013 class is not yet complete.

But I say we outright take the Coastal, and stick to the win range as of now.

-----
As for FSU's schedule: their 2012 schedule was legendary in their creampuffness, including the ACC title game and their bowl game. It was pathetic on a universal scale...

...and they still lost twice. PATHETIC. Nobody tops the Noles when it comes to suckfest creampuff schedules. Nobody. I expect them to jump to Conference USA anyday now.

Do you realize that in the past few years, their schedules have included...
Idaho, Wofford, Nevada (2013)
Murray State, Savannah State, South Florida, Northern Illinois (2012)
Charleston Southern, LA Monroe (2011).

And to think, with all the presumed talent and recruiting classes...

...do you all realize how many conference titles they've won since 2006? One. Last year vs. a 7 loss Georgia Tech. They've also lost 38 games during that span.

It's about time UM caught a break. UM clung to dear life as a program under Larry Coker, Randy Shannon, and Nevin Shapiro's nonsense. These clowns had presumably the best talent in the country.

Sheesh.

I thought Golden didn't want his guys to run track.

So you're telling us that Duke got 2,000 yards and 14 touchdowns (1 passing) with injuries and without a full workout regime? That is FRIGHTENING for opposing teams, especially with the manbeast Hagens and the o-line returning.

I need ALL people to post comments!

I can't do this by myself...

************************************
DONE!!! :-) Love the new hire....

Brevardcane

In golden's talk with rosé today, he said there are few guys coming in this class with elite speed in reference to the track talk. Anyone know who they are?

Old Skool

Burns is a champion hurdler. I doubt Golden's referring to Whitfield but ya never know

UMike

Definitly Burns,..he is nationally ranked in I think 110M hurdles..IDK who else he would mean in the 2013 class.

Ohio_Cane

Standish needs to close the other recruits out on the 18th starting with his boy Tim Williams.

Posted by: UpNorthCane | January 11, 2013 at 10:59 AM
-----------------------------------------

He's already said he is. Not just that weekend, but talks to him all the time. Him and 6.

UpNorthCane27

Thats good to hear then Ohio.... and we will def meet up for that UM game vs Pitt bro

Old Skool

Warren Sapp was announced as one of 15 "modern-era" finalists for selection to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

CGNC

Harry, thanks for the info. Does Ricky really want to be surrounded by t-shirt wearing bubbas??? ;-D

CGNC

86! You leaving me for 10-2????? I'm sticking to my 9-3.

CGNC


FSU's got the cream of the crop for there schedule. No G. Tech, No Va. Tech & no UNC.

Posted by: 5 ships ago | January 11, 2013 at 12:12 PM

They play Clemson who beat LSU in their recent bowl

Old Skool

I believe the firing of Mario leaves one Cane remaining as the head coach of a DIV 1 collegiate football team.

Almost sure Artie Burns is one of them. Other one could be one of those things coach is keeping mum on.

Uhhh I predict 12-0....12%every year I think U jus wanted to see tht CEO...and yea U will be on the bus this year "Don't Believe Me Jus Watch"...lol


RCCF..ALWAYS..12%

herbieibis

Collins & Coley can run, Unless he's talking about Whit, who can fly.
Early predictions, well I was about right on this year, with a 6-6 and a high of 7-5.
Fsu, will still be tough on defense and return 7 to 8 starters on offense, this will be a tough test for us at their place. UNC will be tough as we have one win up in Chapel Hill BUT that was then and this is now, the Herb wants you all to know that the climb back up the mountain is still a Process, to steal Goldie's line, and until we get the front 7 in order we could be in for more misery. Yes, will batter the cream puffs we finally have on our schedule but our biggest obstacle is ourselves.We have to beat the teams we are supposed to beat: the Virginia's & Marylands of the world. Aside from FSU, who has more overall talent? Sure Clemson has some talent but in the ACC you are looking at 4 teams you realistically have to watch out for: FSU, Va. Tech, Clemson & US. Will see how good Clemson is when Boyd leaves. I don't even count G. Tech or UNC, now that Butch is gone. The overall league is weak, so with that being said, I see 9-3 and a high of 10-2, it all depends on 2 things, we keep Morris healthy & we plug up the middle on defense.

WATCH OUT COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Brevardcane

Anybody with access post the good stuff from the Mario presser!

CoCane

I think the defense will play at the level that the offense played last season.

They'll dominate against bad & mediocre offenses, but struggle against good & explosive offenses.

That alone with out offense will give us 10 wins lol

Cautious optimism for me like many of you guys. I want to see UTough, spring practices/spring game and watch us make it through unscathed injury-wise to the season-opener. I'm pretty much willing to put money on 9-3 and while 10-2 or 11-1 are definitely logical.

*I'm pretty much willing to put money on 9-3 and while 10-2 or 11-1 are definitely logical, I don't want to get too excited and put too much pressure on them for myself haha.

This is the link I got from twitter for the Super Mario Re-Introduction Presser.

herbieibis

The Tide gutted again with early departures, Fluker, Milner & Lacy all going pro and LSU is losing 10 players early including 6 starters off defense. I'm glad that's not us. If their defense is better than ours next year, then something is really wrong!

Jack

Al Golden is smart. I enjoy listing to him and I believe in this coach!

UpNorthCane27

All i gotta say while watching mario's presser is godddammnnnnn The U will be back!!!! that dude if Godlen leaves is the future.

Account Deleted

you gotta be a real fan to predict 12-0 for at team that just finished 116th in defense regardless of the schedule.

My early early look...8-4

Sorry, but not yet ready for FSU and UF, that's 2 down.

And somewhere along the way we'll lose to someone we should beat (like UVA every year it seems). that's 3 down...

And then there's one we just plain lose, like most teams will do by not showing up.
There's 4 down...

Vault it here, 8-4....but the Coastal is a possiblity, just depends on where the other two loses fall.....

j.w.

Hi space fans! Sorry haven't been around for a while, too damned busy with work, and parental duties (wife has bad case of the flu.) loving the new schedule, glad to see Va. Tech and FSU split up. And great news for recruiting of Mario is all ready to go, tho I'm not crazy about BC coaching. WRs. Now back to work. But the two weeks of hell are coming to an end, so I'll be around more, soup.
