Ugly game apparently from the write-up. A W is a W however. Miami heads up to Durham, NC. to face the Duke Blue Devils next week. Being 0-2 in ACC play, a win against the perennially weak Blue Devils is imperative.

A loss would realistically be tatamount to giving up any hope for a bowl game for the second year in a row. I don’t know how one lobbies for a bowl bid with a loss to Duke on their schedule.

This program has been so dominant over the past 20 odd years, that you have to look back to a two year gap between their appearance in the Peach Bowl in 1980, and their first National Championship in the Orange Bowl in 1983 to find more than a single year not playing in a post-season bowl game.

Go Canes.
