    That's not very unrealistic, but I just haven't seen enough of Whipple's offense yet. It will take me at least the first two games to get a better idea of how good this team actually is.

    We have enough talent to win the ACC, but are we a good "team" yet? We'll see. I do have a lot of faith in Jacory. He needs to stay healthy though, I saw that his right shoulder has been bothering him somewhat and as much as I like Taylor Cook, I'm not ready to be playing him against the Oklahoma's and Florida State's of the world just yet.

      The way I see it is we have the most talent on paper in the ACC, I fully trust that Whipple is an enormous upgrade over Nix and the defense is going to be beastly. All I wanted from the offense last year was for it to not lose us games, and with Whipple, Jacory and a stacked WR group I am confident about that.

      As for Oklahoma, I have mentioned it before but that offensive line carried them last year IMO and them having to replace the entire line will not be easy. It will be a completely different game for Bradford when he doesn't have that extra .5 second to throw. Add in our Dline being the strength next year, plus when teams from places like Oklahoma have to come to Miami in early October the humidity is like a 12th player for us; it is an absolute shock for teams not in the deep, deep south.

      Of course this all changes if a Jacory Harris or Jason Fox gets injured....

      • I'm expecting 9-3 regular season, 2-2 start and then 1 ACC loss during the stretch, then hoping we can win the ACCCG and the bowl game. Of course that's going to depend on Whipple/Jacory a ton but I do have faith in both and expect this team to take the next step.

        As for Oklahoma, I'll be glad if it's within 3 TDs, yes they're losing that OL, but they'll still have a good group and the defense (especially the front 7) is going to be scary.

        And yea STA recruits like crazy. Really hoping we bring in 3 or 4 of those guys though.

        That is correct comahan

        • We are going to have a hell of a time blocking McCoy and Granger, I agree DG.

          • I'm saying a 9-3 regular season.

            I expect Whipple to be able to catch the good defenses of FSU and VT off guard early simply because they haven't seen any of our offense to game plan against. Then we should bve able to win 1 of GT or OU.

            Oklahoma isn't the same team as last year losing both startings WRs, most of the OL and I'm not sure Murray is supposed to be reay that early (at least not 100 percent) but it should still be a game we will not be favored in.

            After a 3-1 start. I say we lose 2 of the remaining games. Like Clemson and 1 other surprise loss. But we should at make the ACCCG

            • I don't know about the regular season, but I will say this about Oklahoma:

              We're playing them at home. Bradford struggles when facing a pass rush. He's unathletic and holds the ball too long or forces throws. I think we can put the pressure on with our 49384938 talented pass rushers on their inexperienced line.

              I think we'll have a better time defensively against OU than UF last year. OU is less likely to make big plays down the field and we should force the issue enough to keep them from driving on us with short passes. Randy Phillips will be fired up I'm sure :).

              This will be a big test for Coach Whipple. Harris will have some trouble in the pocket against their pass rush and we'll need a good gameplan to give him time. If Harris has time, we can burn their DBs all day.

              Last year I was confident that the UF game would be close. I also said we'd knock around Tebow. I'm expecting the same against OU, except I think we'll win in the end. I like the matchup.

              • Forgot to mention this stuff on here.

                Most you guys know about my friend that talks to coaches and players from time to time. Well we chills during the UFC fight on Friday and talked some Canes. Passing along his info.

                -He heard Sam Shields could start at CB. And not because the other CBs have been that bad. Shields has always had the speed but supposedly he has really taken to hitting people. Jason Fox told my friend that Same says this is his last chance to make it and that he's taking it very seriously which he never did in the past. I still think we are asking alot of him but if he can come in and contribute as a nickel guy so that Grant sees the field less and less, Ill be happy.

                - Jermaine Johnson goes into the store more then most players and my friend has talked to him a few times. Dumb as a rock he says but very impressive physically. Says he thinks this kid will be good judging strictly on his physical tools.

                -He thinks Arthur gets that starting MLB job sooner rather then later. I'm personally hoping we don't have to wait more then 2-3 games into the season to see the move made.

                -Most people on here will appreciate this. He loves Matt James. Says the kid is the real deal.

                Nothing really earth shattering here but my friend has a good feel for whats going on and he generally is in the ballpark with what he says.

                • I hope you guys win the ACC this year. I'm ready for the U to be relevant again, college football isn't the same when they're not.

                  • damn 16 years of U first round picks have come to and end. Only if the Rbs had come out, and even then it might have been a stretch.

                      Yes it is sad, but there was never any chance. Baby J and G-Coop would not have been any better than 3rd rounders most likely.

                      Our only realsitic chance was DE Eric Moncur, but his season started out slow and then he got hurt.

                          Nah, Coop doesn't go before the 3rd IMO.

                          • Coop is awesome.

                            <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                            <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                              in this RB class, where no one is breaking the 4.5 mark, if Coop actually ran a 4.3 you can put him in AZ at the latest lock

                                Too little production and too bad in the 2nd halves of games where he did produce. He just cannot take the beating right now. Supposedly he's gained another 10 pounds and is up to 200lbs flat, which is funny considering everyone was claiming he was 2 bills last year.
