Texas wants revenge against Texas Tech. Florida wants revenge against Lane Kiffin (take a number). But the revenge theme for the college football weekend gets an early start with Georgia Tech visiting Miami Thursday night on ESPN.
You remember a year ago, when the Yellow Jackets attempted seven passes (one of them by a wide receiver) and scored 41 points in a rout against the Hurricanes? That's what happens when a team rushes for 472 yards, only slightly less ground work than the Hurricanes managed the entire month of November.
As Mark Schlabach noted this week, Miami was so eager for redemption that it asked the ACC to schedule this game for a Thursday night national showcase. And as Ivan Maisel and Todd McShay discussed in their podcast (link to the left) -- and as Maisel reiterated in Wednesday's chat -- Miami looks like it's really back. But will the Hurricanes get their revenge?
The defense is still iffy, but i dont think GT will be able to keep up with UM's scoring, outside of Morgan the honeybees have little to no pass rush, leading me to believe J12 will have time to write a novel and carve up that overrated secondary” -- blackmamba248
I have not watched ACC football since I was a little kid, but that is changing. This is a big time matchup. Cannot wait until work is over so I can order Dominos and couch-it-up this game. Wanted to say thanks to both Georgia Tech and Miami for their two teams. I really am not affected by who wins but I would like to see Tech win as Miami has already enjoyed a lot of success.” -- TexMex_08
