Miami Hurricanes football adding black and green jerseys for 2017

I have confidence that, under Richt, the jersey will NOT suck at all. They will probably be our best looking alternates in YEARS.

Did you tell them to turn off the tv for defense? Good time to take medication, drink beer, etc.

Mountain Cane

Good addition, Dude. He likes lots of beer so will have lots of drinking opportunities. A can for every td given up could make for a good game.

Posted by: nemo2002 | July 06, 2017 at 12:03 PM

You're a die-hard Hurricane fan. They hire Al Golden. You think it's an awful choiuce. Now, what do you do? Do you still rooot for them becaus, after all, it's still the Canes? Or do put your passion on hold till they come to their senses?

Adolescent me had the same problem with Suzi Quatro when Stumblin' In came out. I loved the rocking and bass playing Suzi of Can the Can and 48 Crash. Then she teams up with Smokie's Chris Norman. Anti-Rock.

Now, decade's later, I have to admit it's a pretty good song. And Al Golden is history. Life is good.

Per Matt Porter of PBP:

One betting outlet thinks the Hurricanes are a nine-win team.

Taking an early glance at the schedule, it seems reasonable to take the over.

Miami’s over-under of nine wins seems one too low, even without a sure thing at quarterback. UM’s defense should be good enough to keep them in games while an offense with plenty of skill comes together. It may not be enough in Week 3 at Florida State, but that’s far and away the biggest hurdle on the Canes’ schedule.

Two months before the season, I would take my chances with the Hurricanes in tight games with Notre Dame (home), Virginia Tech (home), Pittsburgh (away), and expect them to handle Syracuse (home), Duke (road), North Carolina (road), Toledo (home), Arkansas State (road), Georgia Tech (home) and Virginia (home) a little more easily.

That would make Miami a 10-game winner for the first time since 2003, when it was still in the Big East (and two years removed from a national championship).

Speaking of odds, VegasInsider lists no line for Miami’s opener against Bethune-Cookman (12:30 p.m. Sept. 2, ACC regional networks). However, dozens of more competitive Week 1 matchups are projected.

In January, the Hurricanes were given 66-to-1 odds to win the national title and are the Vegas favorite to win the ACC Coastal Division. They will likely be the Coastal choice when the media convenes in Charlotte next Thursday for the ACC Kickoff.

UM, which ended last year ranked No. 20, came in at No. 23 in Athlon Sports’ preseason poll, and No. 19 in both the Sporting News and Fox Sports polls.

One thing to note, which may be coincidental: Miami has exceeded its early projection in the last two years.

Last year’s June regular-season over-under was 6.5 wins. The Hurricanes won eight games in the regular season and finished 9-4. In 2015, they took 5.5 wins and turned it into an eight-win regular season, and an 8-5 record. In 2014, Miami’s preseason over-under was 7.5 wins. They went under — under that, and under .500 (6-7).

What say you about 2017?

Dude on a Pale Horse

I can see us losing 3 regular season games and losing in a bowl. Just ballparking it, 25% chance I'd say. 70% we win 10 games bowl included & 5% chance we win 11 or more.

Go Canes!

It's all going to come down to Praying for Perry.

And be ready to watch corners play 6 yards off the LOS on 3rd and 2

BigWindyCane1

I like Matt Porter's predictions on the Canes wins total and Coastal Division Championship. From listening to CMR's speeches and interviews, I also think CMR believes the Canes will have a great season, and at least win the Coastal. Many good coaches' programs make a huge leap in the second year. Players are familiar with the system and what needs to get done.

Players will ride the momentum of a very strong 5-0 finish last season (perhaps the most impressive win streak at UM in over a decade) against 4 quality ACC opponents and a ranked West Virginia team. The Canes averaged 37 points and gave up 18 points a game during that stretch.

The Canes should also improve as the season moves along. Obviously, the big unknown is the QB. Although you can see that the Canes have talent at the QB position, you never really know what kind of QB you have until they put on pads and start playing. CMR is clear that he wants a dual threat QB, and all of the QBs on the roster right now can tuck the ball and run. Perry is probably the most talented, and he does have a whip for an arm. Perry is also allusive and seems to have good instincts for big plays. But as a freshmen, mistakes and turnovers are often and issue when they step in against good competition. I think there is enough talent on offense to help Perry or any other QB who starts this season.

The defense will be nasty. I think they will be even better. The DTs might go early to the NFL this year, and the DEs could lead the conference is sacks. I expect Thomas to take an extraordinary leap this year, and Jackson will also. The tow-deep LBs will all improve dramatically from their freshmen and sophomore seasons, as I see a few future NFL players in that LB rotation. The surprise will be the CBs, as I expect some talented playmakers who could lead the ACC in INTs. Jaquan Johnson will be that leader on defense, and will be an improvement from the two very good Canes safeties last season. I am confident that this will be a top ten defense, but I also expect that they will generate more turnovers because they will play faster and smarter. This is the best defense since Vilma, Wilfork and Rolle were Canes.

Terrance Sullivan

Watch the turnovers and that will tell you the tale of our season. That and line play on both sides of scrimmage. Let me break it down in 2014 we the Offense turned the ball over 27 times we went 6-7. In 2015 the Offense turned the ball over 17 times we went 8-5, In 2016 the Offense turned the ball over 10 times we went 9-4. Protect the Football.

Go Canes!

Alabama-FSU opener is officially a sell out. Tide is 7.5 point favorite according to @LVSuperBook

Does FSU playing Bama early help us or hurt us? I can see the arguement both ways.

Somewhere between '15 & '16 is my guess, but with a stronger D that adds TFL and TOs.

Canes alum and Phoenix Sun second round pick Devon Reed scored 17 points in an 89-85 win over the Sacramento Kings in his first Summer League game in Las Vegas.

CGNC

Hi peeps! VA good to see you around on the blog. Looking forward to meeting you at the Notre Dame game.

Had a nice conversation with Ahmon Richards parents in Home Depot today. There was a man standing behind me with a Canes shirt so I told him I liked it, and he said his son plays for the Canes. I asked who and he told me. He seemed surprised I knew about Ahmon and I said "everyone knows about Ahmon". They are very happy that he chose Miami and they said that he is very happy at Miami. They also feel, like we do, that FSU should be our only loss. His mother cannot wait for the season to start LOL

There ya have it. Really nice people.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: CGNC | July 09, 2017 at 04:49 PM

Very cool. FSU is our only loss on paper, but so much can change over the course of a season and many things can be beyond our control, especially for a team like ours which isnt yet a finished product.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I read an article the other day, maybe the link was here? It was about how Perry is already impressing his team with his ability and that he's winning them over. Now the odds arent good I think, but if this kid is a day 1 problem for other defenses, we could be in for something sweet. I hope Richt, Perry and the entire team has 2016's FSU v. Louisville memorized.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Speaking of Louisville, I think most would agree they had a great season last year finishing 7-1 in conference, but lets not forget they finished 9-4 overall. It was a big season for them crushing FSU & playing Clemson close, but 1 crazy night against the Kentucky Wildcats cost them a 10 win season. That's just college football.

Terrance Sullivan

Or laying a egg against LSU in the Citrus Bowl lol.

Terrance Sullivan

We should of had a 10 win season if we didn't lay an egg against a 4-8 Notre Dame team.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ My point exactly TS. Damn that ND loss still chaps my ass. Should have beaten those guys.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir The Dude. We would of been 10-3 and would have finished the season in the Top 12 instead of finishing 20th.

SOUP

There ya have it. Really nice people.

SOUP

Nobody is going to like what I am about to say:

Richt's Mr. Good/Nice Guy attitude cost us the ND game. Hate is an ugly emotion but it can be a very powerful emotion. One must harness their hate in a violent sport like football to succeed.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Not totally true SOUP. Pete Carroll was a nice guy for the most part.

CaneRock

I hope Richt, Perry and the entire team has 2016's FSU v. Louisville memorized.

Posted by: The Dude | July 09, 2017 at 05:08 PM

Perry ain't Jackson as far as running ability, but I do think Perry throws a better ball than Jackson at the same point int their careers.

Wrong again SOUP, it was the shitty QB play of the gold-hen girl loser for life against all the primary rivals dude at QB getting outplayed by a future high round NFL draft pick at the start and at the end of the game that let that under .500 season winning percentage opponent loss on the record of all involved.

Luckily that particular gane choker is gone and back to palling around with the loser who offered a wasted scholarship spot to him in the first place, so now there's a small chance of actually holding onto leads once they're on the board in crunch time.

But by all means, show the point in the game that the offensive coordinator or the head coach's gameplan cost his team the win by sharing the timestamp for the exact moment with the rest of us to know what you're trying to reference. Please, continue.
