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.

Danny Rolling wears Tim Tebow jammies.

TEBOW IS LOVED BY ALL

Renewal of an old rivalry and good recruiting exposure...no complaints about a Nebraska home and home here. Would love to schedule a USC, UCLA or ND down the line, but I think the U's out of conf scheduling has been top notch...OK 07, UF 08, OK, 09, OSU 10 and 11

Hey Big Moo, let's not leave out South Florida!

Go 'Canes

For a guy that hates the Gator Nation so much, you sure know a lot about gainesville Stool.

AS I SAID BEFORE, I LIKE TO BANG GATOR GIRLS

A LITTLE TOOTHY IN THE MOUTH, BUT IF YOU ROLL 'EM OVER AND RUB THEIR BELLIES, THEY GO RIGHT TO SLEEP

It's hard to get a date with USC. They play 9 conference games and Notre Dame which only leaves two other spots each year.

MANNY NEW DEPTH CHART PLEASE!!

Sarasota 'Cane keep it up, sh!ts great! haha

Gator non conference opponents (besides FSU whom the state legislature makes the gators play)

'08 Hawaii, Miami, and the Citadel
'07 Western Kentucky, Troy, and Florida Atlantic
'06 Southern Miss, Central Florida, Western Carolina
'05 Wyoming, La Tech,
'04 Eastern Michigan, Middle Tenn St.
'03 San Jose St. FAMU, Miami

Why play the U when you can play Western Carolina?

when i think of the big easy..i think of alex brown of uf getting split on bourbon street during the bowl festivities....

Sarasota 'Cane is da man!

Canesrule, where you at p b!

New Blog is up!

let shawnbrey spin

This is hysterical, "turn them over and rub their belly" HAHAHA.

but anyway, back to the point,... Didn't this... "Super Power" we call UF... lose to a less then impressive Michigan team, that if i recall lost to App. State.......

and come on guys saying "5>2" doesn't do them justice, we did give them a 20 year head start....

ALL PRAISE U OF FLORIDA GODS GIFT TO COLLEGE FOOTBALL,..... or not..
