We are top 25 in football!

I just saw the USA Today poll. Look!


I’m a bit surprised. Seven of our eleven wins are against teams this ranking places 109-133.

But Ill take the appreciation they’re giving us!


And, ironically Coral Gables School of Malcontents is ranked # 43.

You mean the fake Miami?

For all of the crap they gave Brett… he was right. He just had the wrong date.

Yeah that’s where we have to take these things with a grain of salt. I know we are legit top 50. But likely 30-50 range. Still a great year.

=>Miami is around 60-75 range IMO.

#73 with Sagarin


#61 in Massey

#43 in Massey Composite with a high of #19 and low of #114. Only teams we played ranked higher were Toledo (#41) and Miami of FLORIDA (#35) which happens to be the only two teams to beat Miami. Soft schedule obviously inflates the record.

But, if folks want to rank Miami in the top 25, I ain’t complaining!

If I’m not mistaken, Sagarin has a significant margin of victory component. I like S&P and how they look at play by play outcomes adjusted for tempo and opponents. We’re 52nd again there. Bill Connelly, who does the S&P ratings, spent some time lauding our “blue-chip” special teams unit in his column this week on ESPN+.

I really could see us 30-50 and that’s pretty great as it represents a huge jump. A top 25 program to me has a win over a ranked team (we do) and a really solid sos (we do not). But again, we are so much improved. That alone is a win!

My goal for Miami has always been to be a consistent FBS top 40 program with occasional forays into the top 25. That would equate to being a consistent top 20 team within the G5.

I think we’ve only finished in the top 15 overall four times in the modern college football era that began for us after WWII.

Our historic high water mark was 10th - achieved just twice in our history - once in the mid-70s and the last time in 2003.
