THE U IS BACK

Mark Richt looked at his second season in Miami as an opportunity to continue building a foundation, with 10 wins and an ACC Coastal title as a best-case scenario. Coming from where the Canes were, reaching the team's first-ever ACC championship game alone would have qualified 2017 as a huge success.

Now? A turnover-chain-wearing A-Rod and girlfriend J.Lo are cheering on a team that's a win over Notre Dame away from entering the projected playoff field. Thanks to losses by No. 6 Ohio State and No. 7 Penn State and No. 9 Wisconsin’s weak schedule, there's a very good chance the Canes will be sitting at No. 7 heading into a matchup against the Irish this weekend. Miami may even jump ahead of TCU for the No. 6 spot.

Since its last true national title contender over a decade ago, Miami has always had access to the talent necessary to turn things around quickly if the right coach took over. Likewise, Richt and his staff would argue competing for titles is something they expected right away. But let's be real: If Richt were forced to answer honestly about his 2017 expectations, there's no way he'd predict Saturday's Catholics vs. Convicts rekindling was going to have so much riding on it.

Screw SI. They are not worth the time to read. This is the same newspaper that asked on the front page if Miami should drop football?

F them.

The irony of Catholics vs Convicts was that at the time, Miami had more Catholics on the team than the Domers did.

can you imagine how lit this board is going to be saturday night/sunday. 9-0 mid november with two cupcakes left and a showdown with clemson for a shot at the national title


so many one loss teams, if we beat ND, won out then lost a close one to Clemson we could even sneak in the CFP with a loss. either way on pace for best year in 15 years
