Well due to illness I have not written much this season. It looks like I am finally over the hump. I have my club seats for the game today. I’m hoping Miami improves on stopping the run. If not it will be like 4 years ago on that cold night in November where GT seemed to run for 1000 yards. The bottom line is Miami needs to play ball control offence or makes this game a shoot out. As much as Miami defense is young, GT’s defense is not that good and has not been for years. I don’t know if Miami can run the ball 50%+ and keep Miami’s young defense on the sideline. Morris has to manage the game, but he has not played well the last few weeks.
Going off topic this morning. I’m tired of hearing radio talk show host that claim to be Miami fans blame Golden and blame the kids. One idiot on 790 the zone tried to blame Golden, and he was the reason for the down fall. By the way he was a big Shannon supporter. Dan Sileo went on his rant a few days that exploded on the internet. He just was demoted from the afternoon drive to the midmorning spot a few weeks ago on WQAM. You figure a guy who is about 50 years old would lay off the PEDs and the sweat suits. He is pretty much your typical loud mouth ‘roid head who has bounced around radio stations for the last 5-10 years. I used to listen to him in San Francisco, but he was told to stop talking about Miami football. It was not too much longer before he left the station. He is what the Miami program need to separate themselves from.
The fact is the Miami program is one of the youngest teams in the nation. It is way too early to judge these kids and this team. I am going to stay with my pick of winning 8-9 games. I think the defense will improve. I just hope it starts today.
