Miami makes big plays and has weapons all over the field at the WR position even without Duke. My problem is Morris, he's not as good as his numbers suggest. How he's at nearly 60% completion rate I don't know how. He's not that accurate. What's weird about this offense as explosive as they are they have a high % in 3 and outs and turnovers (21), that's not going to fly tonight against this top notch defense.
Cards defense is top five in every major defensive category. Last two times the Canes have faced a top 5 defense they got killed in both games against FSU and Tech.
Canes biggest problem will be on defense. They don't have one match up in their favor on the entire field. How are they going to stop the Cards? Maybe most of you think Cards offense is slow and methodical and that's true but they'll have no problems scoring what I believe will be in the mid 30's. They are banged up with some injuries but shouldn't matter much in what is a bad bad defense.
Say what you want but the Cards are a sound play smart fundamental football. Maybe the Canes stick around for a half but the better team will take over and the Canes only have so many tricks up their sleeve to even keep this close and will have to play a perfect game. Sometimes the other team is just too good.
