Realistic Expectations For Season Opener With Miami

So I have been sitting here reading all the prognostications from the ESPN blogs and it seems that a lot of people have the Labor Day game as a nail biter. Also it seems Vegas has it as a close one too (Heard it was somewhere in the range of FSU -3.5)

I know the history of the FSU/UM Labor Day games as sloppy, defensive, closely played games but for some reason I have this year pegged to be different. I foresee a 2-3 TD victory.

Why?

1) Our Oline will be ready in game 1, theirs is a big question. I base this one the fact that we are returning 5 starters and of course you cannot deny the record of a certain R. Trickett.

2) Miami has a new OC, and while they have many weapons on O they will not have much time to put it toghether for us.

3) I do not think our D will be much worse, if at all, than they finished off last year. To add to that I think our running game will keep the ball in our hands much of the game.

4) 1st half of last years game.

 

Agree/Disagree?

This is my first post so admittedly most if not all of this in not based on statics or anything else but pure memory.
