Perpetually overrated Miami finally seemed to turn the corner in 2013, working its way into the Top 10 with a 7-0 start. Some key injuries precipitated a weak 2-4 close to the year. And heading into 2014 it remains to be seen whether last year was a blip on the radar or a sign of things to come in South Beach.
Al Golden has gone just 22-15 in his three seasons at Miami. But he's deftly handled some off-field distractions and seems to have Miami moving forward. The key this year will be the emergence of a young quarterback and the healthy return of running back Duke Johnson and wide receiver Phil Dorsett. Also, the defense has to improve after a feeble No. 89 overall ranking.
Miami gets its toughest ACC games at home, hosting Duke, North Carolina and Florida State. But the nonconference slate features two tough road games at Louisville and at Nebraska. (In a scheduling quirk, that Louisville game will not count towards the ACC standings even though the Cardinals now share that league with the Hurricanes.)
The Hurricanes have only won eight or more regular season games twice in the last eight years. It has been more profitable to play against them than to jump on the packed bandwagon of The U. Until I see this program string together back-to-back solid seasons I'll keep shorting their stock. Play this number 'under'.
