Think the rain had something to do with it. Shouldn't have but it did.
This is still a good football team with one of the better defenses we've had under Johnson (whatever that means). It's a shame that the coastal has now become an uphill climb. I had no doubt we'd win today. This was a disheartening loss but I still love my Jackets and can't wait to watchem play next weekend. But this one will hurt as a fan for a while. Don't give a öööö about being ranked 15 or 25. I'd rather be unranked and playing in Charlotte in December than ranked 15 and watching Miami play NC St or Clemson in the ACCCG.It's kind of our only hope right now to make this season look less like garbage.
You don't win 8-9 games when you can't close games where you are winning 80%+ of the game.This Miami team is gonna finish the season top 10. We played a very technically correct game today, and it kept us in it when we were obviously overmatched on offense. Diaz dialed up a great second half game plan. Johnson went deep into the play sheet to scrap together what he could. Outside of the last drive, our defense played very well today. Their red zone performance was great. I still think we finish this season with 8 wins (9 if you count UCF)
Consolation is the focus on special teams play over the break looks like it paid off considering they got us half our points. Two in the first half and 10 in the second half. Good job, guysNot that it's any consolation, but öööö at least we have something to be angry about. Things could/have been much worse.
