Slim pickings with only two games scheduled Saturday in what Greg and I are loosely labeling as a preseason for us. I'm also hamstrung a little by my extreme homerism for the Hurricanes, where I can be overly critical to a fault.
Under 47 Miami vs. Florida at Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Fla.
Both sides set up similarly to me. While Miami is breaking in raw redshirt freshman Jarren Williams under center, Florida counters with an inconsistent Feleipe Franks. Both teams have ample talent, where Miami may have more experience, but Florida better chemistry. Both have huge questions along the offensive line, which could make Miami's front seven defensively an advantage, but the Gators counter with a better secondary. The hope in me as a fan is that Miami's new coaching staff comes out aggressively, and hits Florida a few times early before its more experienced staff has a chance to adjust. Once that happens, I'd expect a slugfest in the trenches, where Miami has been embarrassed previously by more physical teams like LSU and Wisconsin last year and Clemson and Wisconsin in 2017. My heart says the new attitude in Coral Gables, and the defense, keep this close. But we've heard that forever with Miami, and until we see it, there's no reason to bank on it. I think both defenses are considerably ahead of both offenses, which has my preferred choice being under 47. Tread lightly however, as the total has dropped 3.5 points
