Miami Hurricanes jump 11 spots to No. 15 in AP poll -- first time since Nov. 14, 2010 that Canes enter AP's Top 25.

Miami Hurricanes fans will likely be beating their chests for at least two more weeks (and let's face it, probably the next month). The Hurricanes, who were just out of the AP Top 25 last week, rose 11 spots to No. 15 (615 points) when the poll was just announced.

The Hurricanes, coming off yesterday's impressive defensive performance that catapulted them over the Gators in a 21-16 victory, have not been in the AP Top 25 since Nov. 14, 2010-- until now. 

The Gators, who were No. 12 last week, fell to No. 18 (405 points).

And Florida State, which had a bye week, is No. 10 (1011 points).

The Hurricanes rose from No. 24 to No. 18 in the USA Today coaches' poll.

Do you think the rankings will affect the Hurricanes in any way psychologically? I know for sure that Coach Al Golden is going to do everything he can to keep them focused on each individual day and what they have to do to better themselves, as opposed to "the external," as he likes to say.

By the way, this is the first time Al Golden has ever had a team in the Top 25.

UM next meets Savannah State on Sept. 21 at home, then USF in Tampa on Sept. 28. Then comes Georgia Tech in Miami on Oct. 5.

What are your thoughts? 

It was an impressive win, despite the offense being nonexistent much of the game. The Canes scored points when they had to and have learned, it seems, to make the big plays defensively. An exhilarating win against the Gators.

I know S State is next, but GT is a game we better be ready for. Morris and the offense will have to put up some points to win the game. GT has a much better QB, and that offense is really good. So beware GT, they are not the same as the last 2 years. GO CANES

Canetrash...i mean jlo , that was a pathetic last effort! calvin is now twice the loser than his gator team. Hey at least uf womens tennis was on a run rieeeght! Love the excises from excuseUfelons. Noone gives games dumba55. The goal is to win all of them.we have done it before, have u felons? Let me save you some internet time....NO! Its aKnown now that UM wants to play again. If the sec is so tough then why do they want to go to a 9 game schedule? Answer....so they get more miss st and vandy games and dont have to play a real ooc schedule.

21-16 lol

Karma!! Wasnt there a gator booger eater on here saying Morris and Dookie would leave on crutches before halftime, and the DC would launch himself from the box for the best hit all game??

Driskel on crutches today UF@g


I'd be happy being in the ACC Championship game, which is a BOWL game for UM. Anything more than that is GRAVY.

Y'all Cane good ol' boy's forgetting one significant roadblock to Miami's regular season. hUh.

The ethical, prestigious N.C.A.A.!!

And the longer the announcement of Miami's forthcoming penalties take, the more likelihood that the Hurricanes DON'T play in a bowl game in 2013. Get outta' here with that crap, Outsider!!

" It is clear to me that Duke, as much as I love him, cannot maintain over 20 carries a game against elite defenses. He will need to put on more weight during the offseason if he wants to be any every down back. Also, he should not have been returning kicks against UF. It is tough enough as it is going up against their D-Line. Miami needs to compliment Duke with a bruising running back. Gus Edwards is the best they have right now to fit that bill. I also think they should run more fullback dives with Hagans to at least wear down the opposing defensive line. " CANE BuBBA

***********************

I've been harping on that notion of the Cane sort ENDLESSLY.

Yet, y'all Cane good ol' boys do what y'all do best... ATTACK with AD HOMINUMS. Simply because y'all DON'T wanna' deal with the TRUTH bout' them Hurricanes. dUh

And dig this y'all Cane good ol' boys. THE DUKE don't need to put on more weight!! For instance, the additional weight will EFFECT his quickness and his breakaway speed. dUh

However, THE DUKE needs his offensive line to bloody BLOCK better against stout Top 20 competition.

ENTER stage right games against K.ST. and the Celts and the MIGHTY Seminoles last season.

Fortunately Miami's defense SAVED Goldie's bacon on Saturday. Eh. What say.

By the way, I stated previously that I-F Miami defeated the MIGHTY Gators, the Hurricanes would finish the regular season RANKED in the TOP 10. hUh

Yeah, yeah I know all about the college sports cliché of " one game at a time" and what not. But that strictly applies to the team and fandom are FREE to engage in VISIONS of GRANDEUR. Eh. What say.

Gators are LOOOOOSERS!

Gators are CHICKENS! Won't schedule UM unless it's in a "neutral" stadium within 10 miles of the UF campus.

All Time Match up record between UM & UF>>>> UM 29 vs UF 26

We own you BIIIATCHES!

Now run and hide, cuz we are only getting stronger.... and you KNOW THIS!

AHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!

We coming for you next, Free Shoes U...

According to the latest N.C.A.A. college football stats'. The Hurricane team defense is rated... NO.41.

And Miami's offense is NO WHERE to be found among the Top 50 team offense category. Of course, the MIGHTY Gators had something to do about that, Jack!

FWIW... Florida's team defense is RANKED No. 7.

Nevertheless, the Canes SCRIMMAGE against Savannah St. will aid both the team defense and team offense in the statistical category. dUH

!!!!!!!!!!!!

O.K. Now that you've VENTED your deep-seated hate and anger.

Go bloody take your MEDICATIONS, bUbba!!

In ESPN's latest college pigskin power poll, the Canes are rated NO.15.

Now, there's no where to go for Goldie's squad, but Up!

Miami' defense has now allowed TWENTY-TWO (22) points. That's the best start since the 2004 season.

Miami' team offense is now RANKED NO. 85 according to the latest N.C.A.A. statistics. Bloody ouch!

Could this be the season the Hurricane defense CARRIES the offense. Because in Miami's last two games, the offense has been A.W.O.L. If you know what I mean.

Yeah, yeah the Hurricanes faced a NO. 7 team defense in the guise of MIGHTY Florida. hUh

Here comes D with his crap. He will be spewing his racial garbage like earlier. People like him try to encourage dissention among the true fans. He is still mad over Shannon. Sitting in his single wide with a pop-up attached for in-law quarters, just can,t stand it in gaynesville, with all the other losers. See how it got spelled, losers. This blog is a dumpster fire

21-16 D . U ARE DISMISSED!

Miami' s next home game against Savannah St. is set for 7:00 EST. Only ESPN3 will carry the game.

Again, the Hurricanes next home game is set for a 7:00 EST start and there will be NO telly coverage of the game.

ONLY espn3 will broadcast the game.

Nonetheless, I still will be able to watch M-Y Hurricanes vis-à-vis ESPN3. hUh

21-16 D lmao

Nevertheless, M-Y Miami should soar to the Top 10 by the end of the season. hUh

21-16 D. The best team won.

Our D is better than your O D 21-16

D, might be hard for you to accept but most people here don't even read that other blog that you're obsessed with.

And we still don't like you either.

Could that be a coincidence or might it be that most UM fans legitimately find your idiotic stroke induced Shannon slurping nonsense annoying?

Gators lost 21-16 D eh what say?

Our 85 th ranked o beat your 7th ranked eh what say D

Tenn. is gonna whack the university of turnovers D. Where is your stat on turnovers D? Can't win if U turn it over D
