TheU vs.Toledo Rockets Preview – SCORE PREDICTION

This is the second meeting in as many seasons for Miami and Toledo. Last year Miami came out on fire in the second half to beat Toledo 52 to 30. But don’t forget that Toledo actually had a lead headed into half time.

Toledo has a long, storied history of beating national powerhouses. They’ve beaten a Larry Fitzgerald lead Pittsburgh team at home and were even victorious against Michigan at the Big House.

Toledo can usually compete against teams around the country that field a lot of 3 star players. Teams like Indiana, Illinois, or Northwestern. But when the big dawgs come out to play, like a Miami, the lack of general disparity in college football proves itself. Indiana, for instance, hasn’t beaten Ohio State since 1988. Sure it happens, where lightning strikes a bottle for Toledo, but talent on the roster really makes a difference. The more talented team in sports, when the discrepancy is that huge, usually wins.

Can Toledo Win?

Ultimately, yes. Upsets happen all the time. Toledo might run the ball all over Miami, and if their QB can play mistake free football, perhaps Toledo pulls out a stunner. Coach Candle is a bright, young, and energetic coach who has implemented a viewer friendly offense that scores plenty. Moreover, Miami’s QB, Malik Rosier, could theoretically throw a massive amount of bad passes and interceptions. I predict a Miami win. Toledo’s too good to not score at least a few times, but this is a game Miami must dominate.

Savannah State vs #TheU Game Preview & Score Prediction

Referring to the Miami vs. Savannah State contest this weekend as a “scrimmage” or “warm-up” might sound disrespectful, but this game is set to be a bloodbath and both parties involved are fully aware of what they signed up for.

The Hurricanes enter the second game of the season with a 99% chance of winning. -point favorite and should get the offensive spark they’ve been in search of. Miami opened the year with a 33-17 loss to #25 LSU.

This game, the week 2 tilt following the top-tier opener against LSU in Arlington, TX will give Miami the chance to work on some fine details, try out some new stuff, and earn their 1st win of the season in easy fashion.

The last time Miami and Savannah State played, Miami won 77-7. That’s the most points the Canes have scored in a decade or more. Against an FCS team such as Savannah State, that kind of extremely lopsided result is to be expected.

Sobering 2018 Opener for “TheU”

It’s hard to imagine a more sobering opener than No. 8 Miami’s 33-17 loss Sunday to No. 25 LSU, a game in which the ’Canes trailed 27-3 by halftime.

Miami, has lost four games in a row since a 10-0 start last season, never got to celebrate with that gaudy turnover chain that comes out when the Hurricanes get a takeaway.

“We certainly had some things go well and some things not well,” said Miami coach Mark Richt, in his third season at his alma mater. “A lot of self-inflicted wounds, not to take anything away from what LSU did. They beat us soundly.”

Malik Rosier had a record-setting season last year with his 31 touchdowns (26 passing, five rushing) and 3,588 total yards, but had some of the same issues that plagued him late. Rosier was 15 of 35 for 259 yards with two interceptions against LSU. The Hurricanes were down 33-3 before his 3-yard TD keeper and 32-yard TD pass to Brian Hightower in the fourth quarter. In the losing streak to end last season, he had three total TDs (all passing) with five interceptions.

Last night was more of the same from Rosier, who looked baffled by the Tigers defense most of the night. Facing pressure, he was always looking to tuck and run. When he did have time, Rosier uncorked balls all over the field, forcing the receivers to make impressive grabs just to bring them in. The second Miami touchdown and the play leading up to it were examples of the good Rosier where he threw two beautiful deep balls. The Hurricanes are at their best when the athletes that play the skill positions get the ball in their hands in space and make a play. But Rosier’s inconsistency can once again limit the team’s ceiling.

Miami was missing second string quarterback N’Kosi Perry, who was suspended for violating team rules. It is curious to think if Richt may have pulled Rosier if Perry was standing on the sideline after a terrible first half for the starter.

Miami relied on its defense and run game more than most realized a year ago during its 10-game winning streak. Rosier will always be remembered for two game-winning throws, but he was up and down most of the season. That was evident in the final three games, all Miami losses, when Rosier was erratic, inconsistent and turnover prone.

Rosier has unraveled in the 14th game of 2017. NCAA teams have figured him out. TheU has to stop squandering all this top skills position talent with sub talent at QB.

If The U is to be really back a real Miami Quarterback needs to rise up.

Miami Hurricanes vs LSU Tigers Preview

Miami Hurricanes vs LSU Tigers Preview

It’s a battle of heavyweight names in what should amount to a College Football Playoff elimination game for one team, and a possible launching pad for the other.

LSU is a power program coming off a solid nine-win season, but it’s not enough considering national championships are supposed to be a part of the equation each and every season – no matter what.

The talent level has been great, and winning nine games last season is nice, but with road games at Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M to deal with, and home games against Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama, a loss to Miami to kick things off would be devastating.

And it would put head man Ed Orgeron on the top of every coaching hot seat article until he comes up with a huge win somewhere.

The Canes have a much, much easier slate to deal with, but they still have to face Florida State at home, and they have back-to-back dates with Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech.

Mark Richt isn’t on any hot seat whatsoever, but with the way last season ended with three straight losses, starting out with a loss in a big game would be a major setback after all the positives of last season.

These two last met in the 2005 Peach Bowl – a 40-3 LSU win. Before that, the Canes pounded the Tigers 44-3 in 1988. Before that? 20-0 LSU in 1969 and 30-0 LSU in 1968.

This one will be closer.

The Canes will have to work the run game, but their offense leaned heavily on explosive plays a year ago, with Rosier throwing deep when teams started loading the box. However, they can still generate some opportunities there or perhaps enough from their run game, if they can confuse the Tigers with zone-option schemes.

This game likely comes down to which offense manages to protect the ball and make the most of opportunities created by their own defense. Given the Canes’ experience in the secondary and at QB, juxtaposed with Burrow’s lack of experience in the LSU program, the pick here is a Hurricane victory.
