Another Big 12 opponent waits

Sitting at home watching the NFL as usual this Sunday and saw a little news flash come across the email. The Canes' trip to Texas A&M next Saturday will be a 3:30 p.m. kickoff instead of an 8 p.m. start.

Isuwsbig12I know this happened on Friday, but I wanted to get your reaction to the news that UM has agreed to play Nebraska in 2014 and 2015. Do you like it? Obviously, Miami and Nebraska haven't played of late like the national championship contenders they were in the past. My question is will Nebraska even be any good? The Cornhuskers have obviously dropped off since Tom Osborne left the program and seem to be just another Big 12 team these days. Not, that UM has done much either since the 2001 title game.

Still, my question is why has UM been so focused on playing Big 12 teams in the regular season? Since 2005, UM has scheduled games against Oklahoma for a home-and-away series (2007, 2009), Texas A&M (2007, 2008) and has Kansas State in (2011 and 2012). Now Nebraska? Miami does have a home-and-home with Ohio State in 2010 and 2011. But, can I formally request athletic director Kirby Hocutt to venture outside the Big 12? How about the Pac-10? Washington (2001) was the last Pac 10 team UM played in the regular season. How about a trip out to Southern Cal? Miami hasn't faced the Trojans since 1968.

Or, how about somebody other than Florida from the SEC? Miami played Tennessee in 2002 and 2003, but hasn't played anyone else from the SEC since it won at Arkansas in 1991. How about a home-and-home against Georgia (whom UM hasn't played since 1966) or Auburn (1984). LSU bombed the Canes 40-3 in the 2005 Peach Bowl. But how about a home-and-home with the Tigers, who last hosted UM in the regular season in 1988? I'm just saying.

The ACC is weak, but now that Miami is in the ACC, they cannot win!

THEY MAKE MEDS FOR YOUR CONFUSION

Tebow is awesome!

YOU WILL STILL LOSE THE SAME 4 GAMES YOU LOST LAST SEASON

We beat Miami!

WE EXPOSED YOUR WEAKNESSES, BEND OVER

Florida to the Outback, Miami to the Orange!

BOOK EARLY TO AVOID THE RUSH

Chris Rainey received "gobs" of cash from the Florida alumni in Lakeland after their state title!

GET READY FLORIDA, IT'S ALMOST YOUR TURN IN THE SEC BARREL

I've been asked to pledge ATO at Florida!

GET READY TO KEEP ONE OF THE MOST EMBARRASSING SECRETS OF YOUR LIFE

3:30pm on ABC, regional coverage.

Go 'Canes!

Canesrule,

UF's C game? WOW! LMFAO!!!!

Ummmmm, wasn't Teblow in the game THE ENTIRE TIME? Yes, also your first team. Oh, but they had an off day...blah...blah...blah.

Hey ya'll, here's Canesrule excuse when UF loses, "Oh, the team missed the plane, and we didn't even show up."

HOW PATHETIC!!!!

Uh, no...Miami's defense punched them in the mouth for 3 and a half quarters. Not too bad coming off a 5-7 season.

5 > 2

ESPN news just stated the game would start at 3:30 on ABC.

Canesrule,

Win more tham 2 NCs in 100+ years then talk.

Miami owns UF 28-26, and you are on here talking us down?

WOW!

LMMFAO!!!

Get ready guys canesrule is getting out of high school in about 30 mins. He is anxiously ready to respond, as soon as he puts down his gaytors backpack and runs to the computer and clicks on 'eye on the u' under his favorites.

Canesrule,

What happened in the '96 NC? Nebraska smack a favored UF team around 62-24.

BRING IT!

This is fun comparing UF to Miami only for U TO FIND OUT JUST HOW SUCKY UF REALLY IS!!!

Bash us for 2-3 years of downtime while UF is never around long enough for anyone to take notice. LMAO!!!

Florida "backed" into 2 football championships!

YOUR ON CAMPUS EXPERIENCES WERE A BIG HELP

Canesrule,

Bye Bye! Don't miss your bus, and ALWAYS remember...

WE OWN U!!!

Florida lost 4 games last year!

TEBOW MISSES LEAK'S JOCK

Neither needs a jock, nothing to support.

Has anyone else heard this? I've been wondering why he doesn't play.

----------------------------------------
Jermaine Mckenzie ive heard through the grape vine isnt playing because of some tensions between him and coaches. Apparently he wasnt even going to go with the team to UF but other players stepped in and said they werent going either unless the team took him with them. I know it sounds childish but my sources are pretty direct.

Florida's coach marched the team over to the frat house to pick a fight!

TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN REVENGE OF THE NERDS

Has there ever been a more insecure, bitter fan base in the history of anything?

NO, NEVER...EVER...EXCEPT MAYBE DURING ROMAN...NO...CHECK THAT...NEVER

Florida is on top!

BECAUSE MIAMI WAS ON THE BOTTOM, THIS TOO SHALL PASS...AGAIN

Miami doesn't have a cakewalk schedule anymore!

THE 2001 MIAMI TEAM IS CONSIDERED BY MANY ANALYSTS TO HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS EVER ASSEMBLED BY ANY SCHOOL, AT ANY TIME

I WILL FORGET THIS PART OF MIAMI'S PAST SO THAT HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF

Canesrule is SO angry sometimes!

YOU WOULD BE TOO IF your MOMMY FORGOT YOUR FAVORITE BINKY WHEN YOU AWOKE FROM NAPPY TIME

KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE, AND YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER

They let a guy back on the team who discharged an AK47 into the air!

IT WAS SET TO SEMI-AUTOMATIC

I might be dating myself, but does anyone remember when the two FL players were fighting at the team dinner, and one of them stabbed the other in the neck right at the table?

I'D LIKE MINE MEDIUM RARE PLEASE

Remember when Florida won the SEC title in 1983?

IT WAS STRIPPED AWAY FOR CHEATING, GIVE 'EM HELL PELL

Remember when the Florida kids were murdered by Danny Rolling?

THERE'S SUCH A FINE LINE BETWEEN CUDDLING, AND HOLDING SOMEONE DOWN SO THEY CAN'T GET UP

SPECKEN ZE DUTCH, FRULEIN

I heard the pledges at Florida have to strip down naked, don blindfolds, and then reach under the legs of the guy in front of them and grab their package!

I WOULD TRY SWITCHING TO DECAF FIRST

Why would a Gaytor fan want to post on a Miami blog anyway?

BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GATOR BLOG, TRICK QUESTION

Canesrule has not posted since 5:00 pm.

SOMETIMES THE HAPPY MEAL TOY CAN BE MEZMERIZING

Not, that UM has done much either since the 2001 title game.

^Delete the comma. =]

By the way: I agree. We should schedule more SEC/Pac-10 schools.
