    College Football Pre-Season 2007


    Alright y'all - I've held off long enough.

    We are 2.5 months away from the '07 kickoff (Thurs Aug 30th).
    Let's get this thing going.



    I'm looking forward to a new era in Miami Hurricane football. I fully expect us to be back near the top of CFB within 3 years.
    The offense will stink this year (and the kicking game - as it sounded from the spring game).

    Here's Miami's schedule:
    2007 Miami Hurricanes Football Schedule
    Day/Date Opponent (2006 Record) TV 2006 Ranking
    Coaches/AP
    Sat., Sept. 1 MARSHALL (5-7) ESPNU
    Sat., Sept. 8 at Oklahoma (11-3) ABC
    Sat., Sept. 15 FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL (0-12) ESPNU
    Thur., Sept. 20 TEXAS A&M (9-4) ESPN
    Sat., Sept. 29 DUKE* (0-12) TBD
    Sat., Oct. 6 at North Carolina* (3-9) TBD
    Sat., Oct. 13 GEORGIA TECH* (9-5) TBD
    Sat., Oct. 20 at Florida State* (7-6) TBD
    Sat. Oct. 27 Off week
    Sat., Nov. 3 NORTH CAROLINA ST.* (3-9) TBD
    Sat., Nov. 10 VIRGINIA* (5-7) TBD
    Sat., Nov. 17 at Virginia Tech* (10-3) TBD
    Sat., Nov. 24 at Boston College* (10-3) ESPN



    Good OOC schedule with OU and A&M. I like that.
    Doubt we beat OU. VaTech is the other loss I'm predicting as of now.

    I'm thinking there may be a 3rd loss - but not quite sure whom.


    Alright - later guys.

    How come you left off that '94 championship in your sig?

    Sorry, relived that magical 2nd half via ESPN classic a few weeks ago....and to think the 'skers hadn't even reached the GOATdom that they would achieve the next year.

    In all seriousness, I'm looking forward to this season as my Huskers have some good comp this year.

    Don't make me relive Denis Errrrickson's horrid offense that year.

    It's mind boggling that we had a D with BOTH Ray Lewis and Warren Sapp and lost.

    You guys were good - but not that great.

    We had a big chance late in that game to break it open - a WR (whose name I can't remember - #3, maybe Jonathon Lewis) broke wide open down the sideline and Frank F'ing Costa overthrew him.

    At that point - the tide started to turn. Our D was on the field something obscene like 45 mins - and the 3 and outs just really took their toll.

    Kudos to your staff - you guys game planned well.
    We were stupid and didn't run our RB's enough - who were getting decent yards.


    I don't have any heartburn over that game. Errickson didn't deserve another title.

    Besides - we've not won in an even numbered year - as you could tell.


    BTW - '01 Canes > '95 Huskers.
    Betta know that!





    I hope you guys beat USC. It's about time you guys had a signature win.
    I wish you guys would come back to the top - Lord knows the Big 12 North has no one that is dominant. The South champ. is basically given a BCS slot.

    Besides - I need you guys back when we are. .
    Miami is 3-1 against Nebraska in championship games (83, 91, and 01 to the aforementioned 94 loss).

    why even bother with predictions? we all know ohio state will avenge their embarassing championship game performance by winning it all this year! but in all seriousness, i would place my bets on USC

    as for miami, other potential losses could come from the *****ry game with FSU. that game is always decided by only a few points. i can also see A&M pulling an upset on the road with Franchionne improving the team every year. and hopefully we'll get another great show when they play Florida International this year

    my pick for the top teams would be USC, wisconsin (theyre gonna surprise people), arkansas (or should i call them McFadden?), and the winner of the red river shootout. im curious to see how the big east does this year as well. theres gonna be hell to pay and lots of money to be won COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON IS COMING BOYS!!!

    Miami is 3-1 against Nebraska in championship games (83, 91, and 01 to the aforementioned 94 loss).
    Costa's pass was terrible. It was probably just all the pressure he was faced with, though. I'll chalk it up to N greatness rather than Miami's deficiencies. As for the 3-1 record, you guys have just been lucky enough to not be at the top during some of our peak years (95, 97, .... the list goes on). N on the other was so consistently on top even when they weren't peaked. Come on, you have to admit that N was the team of the 90's (although an argument for FSU isn't ridiculous).

    Hulk, not sure I see Wisc being that great next year. Haven't done my scouting yet, though, for next year.

    I'm not betting on USC even making it to the Sugar Bowl.

    I'm not convinced they'll beat Cal. I think this may be Cal's year ala the Bulls in '90 (after losing to the Pistons forever in the late '80's).
    I need to see what Cal looks against Tennessee though. I think they'll beat the crap of UT.

    They finally get SC at home, have a returning QB (Longshore), a gamebreaker at WR/returner (DeShawn Jackson), and Forsett at RB.

    I think USC has the most talent in the country - but as I well know as a UM fan watching Larry Coker - that don't mean sh*t. (See UM in 2003 - the talent on that team, all in the Pro Bowl now, was crazy but we couldn't put it together when it mattered.)


    Hulk,
    FSU is as bad as we are. True - it's a *****ry game. But - they've got just as bad of a QB situation as we do. They lost a lot to the NFL, like we did.
    Should be an even matchup. But - we get them at Doak (Tallahasee). We seem to play better there the last 7 years (save for '05).

    I think it's about time for a Wide Right again.

    I've got an A&M grad that I work with. He's told me about their team. I don't think they present a huge challenge, honestly. Their best offensive guy is Javorski Lane at RB - a BIG dude. Thing is - our D (under Randy Shannon - the new HC) has had trouble for the most part against big guys (shut down Greg Jones in '03 in the rain at FSU).
    But - they can't throw the ball very well, this guy says. I think we can load up against the run and allow our pretty good corners (and best in the country safety - Kenny Phillips - betta' recognize USC fans) should be able to take some chances at INT's.
    Also - their D is not so good against the run he says. Sounds like they lost a bit on DL/LB for run support. The running game should be UM's bread and butter in '07.

    FIU won't even be close. I'm predicting a 40 point win.



    Agreed at Wisky - good buddy is a grad. He doesn't want to hear they are highly rated.
    They have y'all's number (OSU). They just have to get by Michigan, whom they've had some trouble with.

    I don't agree at Arky. Too much off-season turmoil. I don't see them beating LSU and Auburn.
    I'm not sure we'll see an SEC team with one loss, honestly. I think it will be a down year for the SEC in '07.
    (Some level headed SEC fans I work with agree - the rabid ones, coughLSUcough, dont.)

    I'd say Cal-SC winner and probably the Red River winner will play in NO for the title.
    Wild card is WVU and maybe Wisky (my pick as most likely to run the table in the Big 10).



    Jas,
    To hear some old time NU fans - that '83 team was one of your best.

    Agreed that we were down when you had your best 2 teams. Our O was just not championship caliber in '94 and '95 was the start of probation. '97 was rock bottom for us - 5-6.

    By the same token - you guys weren't up when we had some of our better teams. We only met once in the infamous 86 to 92 time frame (3 titles and 2 more title game appearances).
    And our best - '01 - met a fairly mediocre NU team.


    I'd have to give you guys the edge as team of the '90's over FSU. You do have 3 titles - though one was against Peyton (who played God-awful in big games at UT).

    He's got a mountain to climb - worse than Miami coming off probation.
    No football tradition period at UNC.

    I'll be watching though.

    You guys played us well in '04 - had the right gameplan. We were stupid and didn't run Devin Hester at RB more often.
    Damn Larry Coker

    I saw that u were a Cane fan so I had to throw that in there. I am hoping that something good comes out of this. Hell maybe some bowl games but they just can't compete with basketball, soccer and others that Carolina is so great in. We need some speed we need some FL boys.

    Haha, yeah I knew all year in '01, our weak pass D was going to get exposed. That Colorado game was painful, and I'm still not sure how we got to play you guys. Anyway, I knew we were going to get smoked in the Rose Bowl.

    '83 was before my time, but is considered one our best teams. We would have been national champs if we had gone for one and taken the tie, though.

    alabama has a lot of potential. they played so many close games against top contenders but couldnt finish with the W. with their new coach, they may be a sleeper team to watch this year.

    jmh, i changed my mind about arkansas as you are ver correct about their drama. they also lost their quarterback to USC. i honestly dont see the SEC being that competitive this year because so many players were lost to the draft. georgia finished real positive last season so they might have a shot. i think LSU is picked to win the conference which is a decent bet.

    Right on man. It is nice to see another Husker fan on here. I'm from Lincoln, now in Kansas City. With Sam Keller at the helm, we will kick ass this year. We just need to beat some teams in the top 10, unlike last year, and we will finally be back to where we belong. And looking ahead, our 2008 class could be one of our best classes ever. The #1 offensive line class and a top 3 rated quaterback( Blaine Gabbert). Go Huskers.

    I'm from Omaha, graduated from UNL as an undergrad, now in Illinois. I'm expecting big things from Keller. I think Callahan is a pretty solid coach and I hope to see a few more crazy trick plays this year like against Colorado.

    UNC, how is Bama looking this year?

    Bama lost a LOT on defense.

    They don't have their best offensive player - Tyrone Prothro - and they have hella big expectations by their mostly retarded, out of touch fans (who think the Bear still runs the show).

    They do have most of their big games at home. Save for FSU and the Iron Bowl.

    I'm predicting 4 losses for the Tide and Nick Satan.
    LSU, Auburn (who has their number), FSU, and someone else - not sure whom.

    LSU wins the West probably by default. They'll f*ck up one game they should win (or 2 - see '06 for an example) but I think the rest of the West really isn't all that.
    I honestly think VaTech will beat them down here in La. They've got a hella good special teams - that is a "Lose Les" weakness. VT'll have a good D - the O will be pretty bad though.
    I'm thinking the Hokies can get some points on special teams and silence the drunken crowd enough to take that advantage away (ala Tennessee in '05).

    I'm divided on the east though - I'm thinking South Carolina, but UGa definitely has a shot.
    I don't see UF winning the east. Too much to ask a seriously retooled D and a new QB (can Tebow throw to the right spot with the drive/game on the line??).

    Me thinks that The Trojans might argue that one with you.

    Been chompin' at a bit to do this thread, yeah?

    I'm surveying the landscape and who's shaping up how, get back to 'ya.

    Just letting you know I haven't forgotten what butters(ed) my bread, all due respect to MMA.

    RD,
    That saying is OLD.

    Prologue - in 1988, Miami got beat by ND at ND. ND went on to the Orange Bowl to win the title.
    There was a pretty controversial call to end the game (Cleveland Gary - whom you probably faced in the League at some point - was ruled to have fumbled the ball into the end zone but his knee was clearly down at the ND 2 yd line before he fumbled). What made it worse was that ND recovered on their 2.
    Royal screw up.

    YouTube evidence:


    Epilogue - Jimmy Johnson leaves for the NFL - but the Canes don't forget what happened in '88. And - the slogan above was born.
    Cane fans that attended say they've never heard the OB as loud as it was in '89 against ND (or as electric).

    YouTube evidence (aka Welcome to the Jungle):

    BTW - hear Coach Tubbs? Tubberville started out under Johnson at Miami.
    Listen to the names on the DL - Cortez, Russell Maryland.

    So would us Texas fans.

    Anyway I thought I would jump in on this thread and give my thought.

    First off Miami should make a nice turnaround this season. They always have the talent to do some damage, and now that there has been a major change in the coaching staff it should be just what they need to get back to the top of cf. However, I don't think it's going to happen this season, so I expect a good year, but not a run at the BCS.

    As long as Pete is with USC, he will continue to recruit top talent in Cali. He not only knows how to recruit, but he is a damn good coach as well, so as long as that dynamic is around they will always be a threat for the title.

    The SEC has had its run as the top conference for some time now, but I see that changing soon. I see the Big Ten, and Big Twelve competing with this position for the next few years. The Big Twelve is loaded with storied programs, and they all seem to be getting back to who they were in the past. JMO

    As far as Texas is concerned they are similar to USC. As long as Mack Brown can continue to recruit top talent, which I have no doubt he can, then they also are always a threat. The major difference between Texas and USC though is Mack Brown is not the same caliber coach as Pete Carrol, not even close. Brown may actually be a better recruiter, but he hardly ever gets the full potential from the talent level of his recruits. Anyway I expect them to have another top five finish and if everything goes right they have a good chance at the title.

    Ryan,
    Where the f*ck you been bro? Ain't seen you in a loooooooooong azz time.

    Nice to see your appearance back in the CFB thread.


    Big 12 North sucks. Hopefully someone steps up - because South winner might as well punch their ticket to the BCS.
    (Not to say we've not had upsets in the B12 title game.)


    I will say this about the B12 - they do schedule non-conference games. Something the SEC doesn't do (coughGatorscough).

    Hell - most of them seem to play Miami over the next 3 years. Home and home with OU, A&M, and Kansas St.
    We are just missing Texas to claim a possible B12 South title.
    LOL.

    Been awhile man, just had some stuff come up that took all of my time, but it's good to be back.

    The north is pretty bad, but Nebraska is on its way back, and what other conference can say they have three of the top ten most winningest programs?

    Ryan,
    We've done it before. In '02 we beat Tennessee and Florida to claim the SEC East title.

    I agree Mr.Totality. Loyal domer myself...and jmh, I also agree about the um...lsu...fans. being from louisiana myself, and going through the painful 2nd half of the Sugar bowl last year, on top of living right smack dab in the middle of em! Anyway, best of luck to all teams this year. And one more thing, jmh, I wonder if ND vs Miami will materialize soon? Its been a while. I think they should renew the *****ry like they did with PennState.

    Cal knock the Trojans off their horse ! They beat them before 34-31 when USC had Bush and Leinart. Forsett is a very underrated running back. He had more YPC then Marshawn Lynch last year and he was averaging a good 10 carries a game. He's not as physical as Lynch but he bursts through the holes. Jackson is a beast and will be a big playmaker this year. Go Bears :clean: **** Stanford and their sh!t talking coach Jim Harbaugh, which I'm sure RD blasted during his career

    GO GATORS!!!

    tebow's awesome, and even tho we lost a lot of players, well be a force to reckon with in the sec east, if not in all of the sec. never count out "the boys from old florida"!

    cant wait to go to all the home games, and hope well play osu again, to own them one more time (only 1 time in bball and football isnt enough (i guess technically its twice in bball))

    BUCKNUTS: Would you take a 11-1 record with the 1 loss @ Michigan or go like 9-3 or 8-4 but not lose to Michigan ? I think the Wolverines have the better squad this year but we'll see what happens 11-17

    9-3 and a victory over meatchicken every single time. I agree that team up north looks to have a better squad on paper but we shall see.

    Don't know how I missed this.

    I think 100% of Miami fans are frothing in the mouth to set something up in those games you guys set aside in the '11 to '14 range.

    Most of us that are old enough still remember the horrible call that ended our chances at a title in '88 (at Notre Dame).

    Sad to say - but your AD folks may actually finally be interested in Miami again - because we suck right now.
    Can't say I really respect ND, honestly. You guys took Boston College off the schedule because they beat you too often.

    Again - I'd love to see the 2nd coming of the Catholics and the Catholics (no longer the convicts).


    I won't be too hard on you, since you too experience the retardedness of LSU fans (esp. related to anything USC - which I do NOT understand for the life of me).
