PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
We need FSU to go down tonight in a firey heap of flames by the hands of Miami Hurricanes!!!
I'll be rooting for them as well but I'm not gonna hold my breath......I truly think FSU has too many weapons on offense and defense and the U at this point is way overrated
Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.
I feel ya, but you know like I know this is a huge rivalry game and anything could happen. Maybe the Rock can stop by and get them to bring it!
“The minute we stop expecting greatness from our football program, we become Wisconsin.” Craig Krenzel
Would like the U to win, but unfortunately they really aren't a good team. FSU will blow them out.
While I agree that Miami is more than likely over ranked #7 vs. #3 FSU, rivalry games tend to be played a bit tight...if anything I feel that Miami will keep it close, I don't think a blowout will ensue.
I must admit though that it sickens me to hope against the odds that Miami wins...because I can't stand that team and their stupid "U" gesture!
Agreed. I have like all of the fsu fans I've met and is don't like rooting against them especially when the u
This game is kind of a "catch 22" ...If FSU wins...it's expected and no change in the polls except for a team behind us dropping...if Miami wins...don't be surprised to see them jump us in the polls with us staying right where the media and everyone else in the country wants us to be...on the outside looking in. It is my firm belief that the media and other fans around the country want nothing more than for us to be undefeated at the end of the year NOT playing for the title.
Miami would then lose to FSU in the ACC Championship. No damn way they go 2-0 against FSU this year.
It'll be difficult, and I'll feel dirty, but I'll be rooting for Miami tonight (I refuse to call them "The U" while admitting to actually rooting for them).
I like that scenario...Yeah..I was always rooting for Miami as well..I'm just pessimistic when it comes to voters and the apparent state of the B1G.
Man I hope your wrong, but then again I wouldn't be totally surprised if it happens as you say. I'm still trying to wrap my head around OSU dropping spots in the polls without losing a game!
Living here is Florida there is no way I could root for the Canes. I hate them almost as much as I hate SCuM. Sorry, can't bring myself to do it.

If Miami's QB wasn't giving the ball away like crazy I would have hope but he makes far too many bad decisions with the ball.
Miami has started the game in a zone defense. If that doesn' t change, they're finished.
Just what you don't want to do.... give a QB who has been on fire a lot of easy throws to build his confidence to start the game.
Not sure why you got down voted...
24-0 and counting...
Haters gonna hate...
Would love to see the upset but I think FSU is just too good. Winston is as good a quarterback I have seen in a long time.
The only way Winston's squinting face would be more annoying is if he was playing for TSUN.
Because we couldn't go for three!!!
Morris has to make better decisions if Miami is going to keep this game close. Wide left.
An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches
Please stop squinting Winston, the lights are not that freaking bright.
Maybe he should have squinted harder that time.
Tie game, there is still hope!
Just turned on game. 7 to 7. I'd love to see Miami win but its a looooong shot.
Miami is actually doing well so far. O line has a good push for Duke Johnson.

Michigan's O line coach needs to see this game.
If they are gonna have a chance they have to stop that running game.
There is no way that Miami can jump us in the BCS if they beat FSU tonight, they can't go bowling. C'mon Canes!
I didn't look this up but I am pretty sure they didn't get a bowl ban after self imposing one the past two years.
"I'm not going to lie. We're anxious to be a part of a matchup like that. It's two states that love the game of football." -Jim Tressel
They self imposed their bowl bans, to lessen the hammer. Gene Smith is still confused on the reasons why!
I agree. Shut the run down and steal winstons swag lol. He is a cocky young man
Miami's defense is getting into good situations, they just need to make the damn stops on third down
Canes need a stop right here.
If Winston has to squint so much, to see the sideline calls coming in (They say he wares contacts except when he is on the football field), how does he see WR's breaking open when running deep routes?
I'm calling BS on this. I think Winston totally hams things up for the TV Camera. His nick-name should be Hollywood, instead of Famous.
Either gets some Abdul Jabars for under the helmet, or give up the charade.
His nickname should be "Shameless."
They cannot let FSU score on every dam drive. And why do all these dudes have the jerseys up that high to where there bellys are out wtf.
I can't hate on it. Eddie did the same.
That's an old school trend right there man!
It's still pretty warm down here in Florida
"Because I couldn't go for 3"
The only throws that Winston can make are dump offs, he isn't in the class of Mariota, Miller or Manziel.
OSU belongs on the same field as either of these teams.... people are going to have to start admitting this.
Acc refs are the worst, total homer bs.
Thanks for that one refs!
That's a horrible stoppage of a play!
Miami is shitting the bed on third downs. Contain the damn qb.
Miami's playcalling is really bad.
I have to agree with ya...
I see. I don't really care for it much but who am I lol.
They gotta match points with FSU or thus game could get ugly
"Success - it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes
Uh oh Miami is in deep trouble now. They have to get some points on this next drive.
Really!? That looked like Miami was playing with 7 people on the field...WTF! Where heck were the DBs and LBs?!
Miami's offense has looked decent lately, I expect an answer.
dear Miami, please stop running the ball, it's not working
Morris needs to sling the damn rock, FSU is shutting down the run now.
Oh snap! Miami not dead yet
INT for the Canes now capitalize!
Yes! Now do something with it!
That's two picks now for Winston. Mariota>Winston
I'd have to agree with ya.
Nice. Make that 2 pix . They gotta capitalize
Go get some points Miami!
Miami has got to get points. 7 of them.
Miami defense has come to play today . Now their offense needs to get it together
Morris is limping. Let's get Williams loosened up on the sidelines.
What exactly is the Miami Oline doing? Duke Johnson gets hit every time before he even gets to the line of scrimmage.
I don't understand why there not puttin the ball in the air.
TD MIami if it holds!
If it stands nice.
Morris has really been impressive the few times that they actually let him pass
air it out Miami!
That should be a TD
Morris has a rocket for an arm.
Give that to him....nice grab.
Miami gets the ball to start the second half too. We have a game folks.
Very nice drive
If fsu wins, I would let osu pass them...
TD! . Who gets ball at half??
da u i think
Miami has a chance to tie it to start the second half
I'm very happy with this game so far, hopefully they can keep it up and get another INT or 2
Nice. They gotta a chance. Shit I'm shocked that its this close at half. Big plus for Miami first half .
If "Squinty" throws a couple picks in the second half, the Canes can pull this out.
We've got a nice ballgame here. 3TD favorite has it's hands full .
I'd love to see Miami snub the 'Canes out and then have to listen to How Clemson, Florida State, Miami is superior to tOSU
There is no doubt in my mind the Bucks can play with either of these teams. I just hope we get the chance to show what we can do on the biggest stage.
Poor Tennessee. They are the Purdue of the SEC.
Jameis is overrated. FSU is overrated. Now we know Clemson is overrated. And Georgia was way overrated. We should jump FSU.
Let's not overreact. Jameis is really good. Let's see how the second half plays out before we start saying stuff like that.
Texas a&m struggling with utep haha. Only 1st q let's not laught too much.
They'll win by 70, but I'll never forget that they were down 7-2!
I know this is a bit late and is a bit OT, but damn it.....LOL @ michigan.
Always ok to make fun of TTUN
There is never a bad time or thread to make fun of Meatchicken!
I honestly think Miami not having Dorsett may be a blessing in disguise. Morris tends to force throws to him. I think if Morris can not make the big mistake Miami has the O-line to win this game.
Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
Fight about to break out..
Fight ! Fight !
Classic DA "U"
Wow that Miami guy needs to be kicked out
Miami has to answer again.
Winston is officially annoying to me, now. FSU is almost soap-opera like. Good, but i'd change the channel.
Why is he annoying?
it is just me, man. it is just me. Seems like more drama in this game with Jimbo and Winston, than the amount of drama between Urban and Braxton in the past 20 games.
I'm here for the football, not the drama.
I don't really think that but I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion.
What soap opera is good?
Danger time for Miami. They could get run off the field.
Can't see Miami climbing back out of this hole. The Canes D has no answer for stopping the Noles.
Yupp. If Miami don't answer. Night night canes
Was that an eye gouge??
That FSU back with his showboating against a team that can't tackle a RB reminds me of this "big strong man" eating wings at BW3.
The 'Noles just have too many good players. Even with the two bad turnovers, they seem to be in control.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
“This is America! And in America, if something sucks, you're supposed to be able to get your money back!”
That int may be the ballgame...
What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.
Omg Goodnight. Ps Braxton could have made that throw 10 out of ten 10 times.
This game is over, and if FSU wins out we will not jump them. Wins against #3 and #7 beats our schedule!
Which sucks cause those teams really aren't the #3 and #7 teams in the country.
I don't think by the end of the year those rankings will hold up and that's all that matters.
that receiver was wide open too
Miami will need fluke change-of-momentum play soon or else it's curtains.
Doesn't look like it will happen. FSU scores here and it's curtains already.
EDIT: That could have been it, had Miami recovered that botched snap.
Miami used to have a defensive line.
You mean when their current defensive line was in elementary school?
Actually, their DL in 2010 and 2011 were pretty good, if a bit overhyped. This DL looks like garbage.
Miaii's defense looked like Purdue on that TD run. Way to maintain the edge, fellas!
Shame. In Miami I think the U would have had a chance. It was within reach at halftime.
Well we may not be getting the outcome we wanted but at least we can celebrate the Canes losing which is always fun.
Of course when they're down 21 they have no problem moving the ball
Damn Morris has missed two guys deep.
This year would have been a great year to start the 4 team playoff.....
hmm, running up the middle didn't work on third down, maybe we should do the same thing on 4th down
This is the first full Florida State game I've seen. Their defense looks good and their offense is really efficient. We could play with them though. I don't see anything they do that is so much better than us.
Okay, let's go Stanford!
Sorry Quack2.....Buckeyes need the help.
I'll root for your boys against RichRod (for old times sake) when they play Arizona.
Haha I know, I was just teasing. Hopefully we both win out so we can get an Oregon osu national title in Pasadena.
An SEC-free final to say bye-bye to the BcS?
I can dig it.
I'd say FSU has a very good chance of going undefeated the rest of the way. Not a single ranked team left for them to play. Sucks for us.
#13 LSU, Miss St., Chattanooga, #11 Auburn
#5 Stanford, Utah, Arizona, Oregon State
Wake Forest, Syracuse, Idaho, Florida
Alabama and Oregon still have some relatively tough games coming up, but I just don't see any of these teams losing. I know it seems to happen every year, but these three are some of the better teams I've seen in the past couple of years. I'd be shocked if Bama, Oregon, FSU, and OSU weren't all undefeated at the end of the year.
There is a better chance of Bama or Oregon losing than FSU. It would not surprise me if all 3 go undefeated. Oregon has it the roughest.
