Now the Canes are truly fracked Saturday vs Va Tech.
Lou Holtz: Miami Hurricanes 'no fluke'

<snip>

"Former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz, known as the anti-Cane to most University of Miami Hurricanes supporters, is now a UM believer.

Holtz, an ESPN commentator, was a guest of sports-radio talk show 790 The Ticket on Tuesday and told co-host Krystal Fernandez that Jacory Harris "would be on one of my five top Heisman candidates right now."

<snip>

"Holtz was asked by Jorge Sedano if he was surprised Miami jumped to No. 9 in the Associated Press poll.

"No, I'm really not," Holtz replied, "because they're the only team in the country that has beaten two ranked teams. Now they get the chance to beat three ranked teams and the following week against Oklahoma it will be four ranked teams.

"I tell you, they win the next two games and they'll be in the top four."

Holtz said he will pick the ninth-ranked Hurricanes to win against No. 11 Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., on Saturday.

"I will not pick against Miami again until they lose."

1. Should be a great game.
And as much as I hate Holtz, I wouldn't bet against them until they lose either.

4. Ha! Ha! I forgot that he picked ND for the NC
He slobbers all over Notre Dame but most everyone else slobbers over Pete Carroll and USC. Kinda balances out. LOL

3. Oh, Lou, Lou, Lou
Bless your heart. That "aw shucks" attitude keeps me from cringing when you open your mouth.

He bounces around with his picks more than anyone.

Question is: would he pick Miami to beat his beloved Notre Dame??

7. Canes got killed 31 - 7.
Not as bad as what Oregon is doing to Cal though. Currently 42 - 3 with seconds left.

8. Two teams are gonna drop big...
...is it me or are more top-ranked teams losing early this year? Goes to show you the people who vote in these stupid polls know nothing, and yet it eventually determines who is awarded the national championship, usually without deserving it.

9. The Canes have a chance to rebound next week vs OU.
Here's hoping Lou picks against them. :thumbsup:

11. #10 Oklahoma.
A good chance for Miami to move back up in the polls (if they win).

12. Home?
They just might...OU is over-rated, as they were last year...3rd best in the Big 12.
