GTFOH LOL #45?? #5 in the ACC??? This is our second yr under this current regime we will be better than 6-6 and we won't fall further than #3 in the ACC IMO
A bunch of BS! Can't wait till the season starts.
It looks like they don't even think we can win 6 games...dayum. I think we win 7 on toughness alone!!! I'm worked up over this impassioned review.
That didn't say 5th in the ACC, it said 5th in the Coastal. In a way I'm glad, we always seem to play better as an underdog then we do as a favorite.
I think it's an honest non-biased opinion. We went 6-6 last year with a better roster versus a similar schedule. We only have four starters returning on offense which looked woeful this spring. The weaker teams we face are Boston College, Bethune-Cookman, Virginia, USF, & Duke which we went 3-2 vs last year. We should be happy if we go 6-6 & we'll return everyone of importance on offense next year save for Mike James.
Of course da fan base is always going disagree, I don't understand why people can't understand that the reason all analyst is expecting a down yr for us is because were young.
Only the greats play here
I personally think is a fair assessment, however we will prove many wrong; the team has gotten stronger and faster. That alone is a huge difference from last year's team and to top it off Stephen Morris knows the playbook very well which in transition has helped others understand it a faster pace
It's all about the U!
I agree that it is a fair assessment based on the limited detailed information these national writers have when putting a story together. Most beat writers and hard core "U" fans know of the sleeping giant in Coral Gables. If you notice, their projections follow pretty close to last year's final records in the conference.
What we have going for us is:
1. Second year of Coach Golden's system
2. Stronger, bigger and faster
3. Deeper "buy-in" to the Golden Way
What we have going against us...
1. Young and inexperienced talent.
Our youth will hurt us during the first half of the season. You better get us early or you may not like the storm you will face later.
My projection is 7-5. But wait until 2013.
It's five o'clock somewhere!!!
How is this not a fair assessment? we were 4th last year in the division and NO ONE would have predicted that at the beginning of the season, I said there was no reason we couldnt win 9-10 games. I still find it ironic though how some fans continue to maintain that whatever we actually have is THE reason were going to win each year. LAst year, we were going to win because of the experience we had and lots of returning starters. Now that we went 6-6 last year, experience is no longer needed and its actully a good thing taht we got rid of the "Shannon guys". This year our youth, "drive" and sheer determination (as well as other things you cant quantify) is going to have us competing for the division and ACC championship?? come on, why is it a bad thing to call this year what it is, a rebuilding year, although we still might have a slightly better record than last year, which was just a cluster$%&* down year. I wont be suprised by anything unless we win something other than 5-8 games because we are an average team in an average conference.
