    Best college game: Florida St. vs. Miami

    This used to be one of the biggest rivalries in college. And once again, they are the most competitive game on the board in college this weekend. The spread has opened at 3 and went to a steady 2 over the week.(Miami favored). I'm thinking about loading heavy on Miami. What are everyone's thoughts here?

    I'm about to lay Miami -2, so we'll be on the same side, durito. I think Miami kills them. This is a big rivalry.

    Thats the way this game should play out, Mike. I think Miami can cover a field goal.

    been a Canes fan since the Schnellenberger days, before he came to UofL and helped build the program, but have still always cheered for the Canes.
    I played them on the ML earlier this morning for 75

    Trying to force the issue has plagued the MiF defensive backs this season. They have allowed 539 passing yards in the past two games. Last week, North Carolina third-string quarterback Cameron Sexton completed 11 of 19 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Tar Heels to a 28-24 comeback victory. Injuries could slow the improvement process, though. The Hurricanes are without injured safeties Randy Phillips (knee) and Vaughn Telemaque (arm). Chavez Grant, Bruce Johnson and Reddick all have dealt with minor injuries this week but are expected to play.

    The Seminoles are back at full strength after the return of several players from suspension
    They rolled to a 39-21 victory against Colorado and are eager to face Miami on Saturday after last year's outcome. FSU seemed to have the game in hand before the Hurricanes erupted for 13 fourth-quarter points in a 37-29 win.
    For the first time in a long time, Florida State will not be missing players due to suspensions relating to the university's academic-fraud scandal. The last of the formerly suspended players, DT Paul Griffin and FB Marcus Sims, are returning for the game Saturday against Miami.
    Florida State's rushing game and special teams produced no shortage of big plays against Colorado.
    One group notably absent from the offensive party was FSU's receiving corps, thought by many to be FSU's deepest stable of playmakers.
    Senior Greg Carr leads the team with 173 yards and a touchdown on 12 catches. Carr said that FSU's offensive balance has led to less production from the receivers.
    "We're a complete offense, and when you have a rushing game like we have, situations are going to come up where big plays come from everybody else," Carr said. "We feel like big plays are just part of the offense, regardless of who is making them."

    i like paterno and bowden...especially bobby boy.....still not sold on the offensive side of the ball for FSU, but their defense has playmakers led by Rolle once more despite all the suspensions for online cheating last season....this is not the biggest highlight game of the day, it shares the spotlight with a few others...of course its history and the success of these two heavyweight programs will obviously bring some of the cache....My boy Bobby plus the points and wouldn't be shocked if Florida State wins...just manage the game on offense and try to sustain drives without QBs Christian Ponder of D'Vontrey Richardson throwing INTs...rock and roll bobby

    Thats a convincing report, I would have avoided the game had I seen it. I am on Miami -2.5. I still think Miami wins this one. Young team, learning. Marve is going to bring Miami back from the dead, IMO.

    NC game had several interesting elements, but there is nothing I have seen that proves FSU is better than North Carolina, so just because they lost in the 4th Q to that team doesn't mean FSU rolls here, IMO.

    Miami team has a TON-- a TON of talent, those who follow recruiting have seen Miami piling up the last few years, so I still feel relatively ok even with more injuries than I thought at the time of the bet.

    I always feel better with the better QB as well......GL to the Miami guys

    like canes -2. boys it is wet and overcast in Miami. I live about 20 minutes away from Dolphin stadium. It has been raining on and off all night. Turnovers can play a big factor in this game.

    Florida St does seem better this year than past years like ND

    They look pretty good on road against a decent Miami team.

    Wish I had seen this thread earlier. I'm heavy on Florida St. today. Panic, you had the right logic but you were just slightly off. If the game "could go either way" in your assessment, always take the points, don't lay them...
