Saturday Selections: Florida-Miami thread

Live from Sun Life Stadium...

The Gators and Canes kickoff in about two hours. Noon time start be damned. The parking lot is rocking. The atmosphere is crazy. Drinks are steadily flowing, and UM students are slowly trickling in. It feels like a primetime game, but will it actually be one?

Here's a quick video of UM's "Cane Walk" entering the stadium:

 

ESPN analyst Todd McShay picked the Gators, as most others have too, but the Mothership's Senior Simpletons (Lou Holtz & Mark May) picked the Canes. 

PICKS

Last week was good start: 5-1 -- the lone miss a close UGA loss.

This week's six-pack:

* Michigan (-3.5) vs. Notre Dame

* Texas A&M (-38.5) vs. Sam Houston State 

* LSU (-34) vs. UAB 

* Oklahoma (-20.5) vs. West Virgina 

* Georgia (-3) vs. South Carolina 

And finally, Florida (-3) at Miami. I think the Gators will win... going away late. This game means more for Miami. Don't believe me, check out how many recruits are here.

Recruits

But Florida simply has too many talented players on defense. This game -- both the week's buildup and today's atmosphere -- feels awfully similar to the Florida-Tennessee game last season. UT had an explosive offense too, but the Vols weren't ready for primetime. 

Deja vu? 

Enjoy the game, everybody.

LOOSERS! Where u at canetras......i mean jlo?

Not bad for 117th ranked defense huh?

Where you at Jesse Simonton? How does that crow taste? Lost for words, like the rest of your arrogant fanbase? Step up and say something.

Come on your arrogant sons of b.i.a.t.h.s. Be men and say something!!!

You've lost 2 of your last 3 games. One of those against a team from the Big East and the other against a team from the ACC.

Hiding behind the facade that you play in the SEC? Please, you got your tails kicked again like you did in last years Sugar Bowl you overrated d bags

I think UF's offense was keeping it "vanilla" so as to not tip their hand to Tennessee in a few weeks.

It's hilarious watching Tubman and "D" come in here and actually talk rational cane football. You all along with Calvin, Gallo, the curse, and soldy have polluted this blog for long enough. We're taking it back now. Thanks for nothing!

Go 'canes!

Can you believe the Florida taxpayers are sitting back while that entitlement program called U of F is spending over $100,000,000.00 a frickin year?

LoL Sarasota... Time to reclaim our territory. The fence is being built right now. State of Miami biatches!

You got that right! This team has the potential to be real special this year!

Go 'canes!

I'm not going anywhere, y'all. I was wrong. I'll have lots more later. Writing as we speak.

Writing what, a suicide note? Don't even bother...Just Do It! JUMP...JUMP...JUMP...

Go 'canes!

Jesse,

Just make sure that your new piece isn't "Vanilla".

A Gator LB, WR and CB are in a car. Who is driving?

The cop

Yoy won fair and square. You got lucky and won! congrats!

UM played a terrific game. Was sitting in the club area and surprised to see there were a few empties in the upper deck. In spite of the prescribed/predicted animosity the press was putting out there all week, the tailgates were pretty civil and the fans were well behaved.

Good luck to UM the rest of the way. You guys have to keep our SOS up for 10 more games!

Lmao at gator clucks.

Man thats a long ride back home. I told yall their defense was better. I will take my apologies NOW!

Mr. Gator Chomp and the other Cane trolls...

I would like to congratulate the Miami Hurricanes on a great win. I just posted a similar message on one of the Cane articles.

Canes won fair and square. The better team won. My congratulations.

To my fellow Gators, hey, such is life... you win some, you lose some. Let's be classy here. Our team fought hard and we are proud of our Alma Mater, win or lose. Today, it was Miami's day to celebrate.

On a side note what an incredible tailgate! It was great to see so many Gators and Canes chilling together, getting drunk, having a good time. All was cool.

The UM fans acted stupid at the end, chanting "F The Gators" and taunting us. That was unnecessary and classless, but I suppose expected.

Anyhow, I don't hide and I don't make excuses, and I'm man enough to admit defeat.

Congratulations Canes.... and GO GATORS!

Still dont got undefeated! Loosers! Maybe we can get a rematch in a bowl? Lmao at driskel...fumblerooskie! Those top tier coaches dont teach ball protection? Yall made our d look good.

Suicyco, I wouldn't say the better team won, as the gators dominated in every category but turnovers, but they won for sure. I mean when it's 413 to 212 in total yards, it's very lopsided, but you can't overcome 5 turnovers to 1.

Gatordumb, the better team has won the last 5 out of 6 times we have played, I think that defines the better team. The gators did win when Miami had 2 freshman QB's back in 2008 but that was it so just admit you will always be our little brother and that you are the 3rd program in the stated behind THE U and fsu.

Gatordumb there is only one statistic that counts and that is 2-0 vs. 1-1 oh yea and 5 National Championships.

It is accurate to say that Driskel in particular and the offense in general gave the game away. The 5 turnovers is what won the game for Miami.
I can agree that Miami was the better team that afternoon and that is why they won they took advantage of all our mistakes and only had two of their own. So go ahead and gloat if you must. There is still lots of football to be played we will see how the season unfolds.
Go Gators!
