      It is not that much of a stretch to say that if you actually think about it.


      F$U is a unanimous pick by everyone in the media to make the playoffs. Miami is the odds on favorite to face them in the ACC Championship.
      If Miami somehow only loses one game going into that hypothetical Final match and wins the championship they will be in the playoffs.

      A couple years back UNC was a few bounces of the ball away from making the playoffs so it is not that crazy to think Miami can also be in that situation.

      They should be in the ACC title game for sure this year, if not, this year will be a failure.

      I totally agree with him when it comes to our talent. However, Steele obviously forgot that Mark Richt does not win Big Games. Now, before all of you mark richt defenders type up your ridiculous responses, you all need to check the record. Results do not lie.

      I think our ceiling is probably a top 10-13 team . We don't have enough depth at OL, DB, or RB to compete not to mention we'll have a green QB.

      Redwine
      Bandy
      Amari Carter
      Delaney
      Jaquan
      Dean
      Maley Young
      Derrick Smith
      Jackson (who apparently had a great spring)

      Think we have a projected Championship defense. The rest we'll find out soon enough.

      I disagree, at OL we have a good amount of depth,especially with freshman we have---Donaldson, Zalontae, Herbert and Gaynor

      For Db's we got bandy, Derrick Smith , dean and delaney im not worried

      For Rb all we can do is pray
