No. 7 Miami travels to face No. 1 Clemson in Death Valley on Saturday in a top-10 battle sure to have implications on the ACC title and College Football Playoff races. There wasn’t much hype for the Tigers-Hurricanes game when the schedule was released in the preseason, but the impressive start by UM has made this early-season showdown one of the biggest games of the year — not only in the ACC but in all of college football.

After all, the ACC doesn’t get a ton of matchups between teams ranked in the top 10. This is the first such game since the 2017 ACC Championship Game when Clemson beat Miami 38-3, and only the 17th meeting between AP top 10 teams in the ACC in the league’s history.

That adds an extra layer of intrigue to the perception portion of Saturday night’s events, as the quality not only of Clemson, the five-time ACC champs, and Miami, the most exciting 2020 contender so far, will carry implications that extend to the entire league.



There’s going to be a ton of talent on the field in Clemson with much of the nation’s eyes on the game. Let’s take a closer look at what to expect in this top-10 showdown as well as make some expert picks both straight up and against the spread.

Clemson: The events of last Saturday had so much for college football fans to digest that Clemson’s win against Virginia likely appeared routine and without worry or concern. After all, when eight ranked teams lose in the same day, there’s enough carnage around the country to focus on without getting distracted by a 41-23 Tigers victory.

Miami QB D’Eriq King has taken full advantage of transfer rules

Posted on

He committed to one school (TCU) way back in 2015, then fashionably de-committed.

He committed to another school (Houston) as it fashionably touted its 2016 recruiting class.

He saw the head coach (Tom Herman) leave after one season, which was pretty fashionable.

He (King) proved fashionably versatile in a sport (among other sports) becoming more position-less.

He played two years for another coach (Major Applewhite), who got fired with fashionable haste.

Come late September 2019, he (King) ventured to the fashion vanguard, accepting his third coach’s advice to follow a new redshirt rule.

Come January 2020, he entered the fashionable transfer portal, announcing it fashionably by tweet during the national championship game.

In winter 2020, he transferred, the foremost fashion.

“Just playing with these guys for the first few weeks and getting a bye week, I think I have a better feel for what guys are good at,” he said this week in Miami’s media sessions. The quotation told of a quick-study necessity that, too, is fashionable.

So start with the transfer and work back.

Transfers grip the game as never before, their stigmas deceased and their pathways ever less cluttered. In the 2019-20 College Football Playoff, three of the four starting quarterbacks had transferred from other major programs, leaving 2021 NFL No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence as the only one of the four as a one-school throwback.

When LSU quarterback Joe Burrow stood in New York in December 2019 to accept the Heisman Trophy, that made it three straight Heisman winners who had transferred from one FBS program to another. Among the 82 Heisman winners before that, only two had transferred from another major school, Cam Newton (2010) and Felix “Doc” Blanchard (1945), the latter switching from North Carolina to Army after he signed up for the Army during

Tennessee, Miami take big swings

Posted on

Enough talking about whether Texas is back.

Time to talk about whether Tennessee and Miami are back!

Like the Longhorns, the Volunteers and Hurricanes are programs with national championship pedigrees that have been lost in the college football wilderness for about two decades, searching for past glory and relevance.

Both are showing early season signs of being dark horse contenders in their conferences and face foes Saturday who are where they aspire to be.

The 14th-ranked Volunteers are at No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Miami visits No. 1 Clemson.

The Vols faithful are as hopeful as they have been in years. Tennessee has won eight straight games, the longest active streak in the Southeastern Conference. That streak includes zero victories against ranked teams, but this is a program that is on its fourth coach since it last had a double-digit win season (2007).

Jeremy Pruitt’s progress has been good enough to earn 15 victories and a contract extension two games into his third season. The Volunteers look like a very different team under Pruitt than they ever did for his predecessor. Butch Jones was 13-14 in his first 27 games with the Volunteers and headed toward the first of two consecutive nine-win seasons. Pruitt is now 15-12.

Yearly games against Alabama and Georgia have been stark reminders of how far the Volunteers have to go to get back to the national championship contention days of the late 1990s. The Bulldogs have won the last three meetings 122-26.

“We’ve continued to improve over the last three years,” Pruitt said. “We’re nowhere near where we want to be.”

Miami’s last national championship was in 2001. Since then, it has won just one Atlantic Coast Conference division title, back in 2017. That surprising run to playoff contention and No. 2 in the

University of Miami basketball team lands four-star Class of ’21 guard Jakai Robinson

Posted on

Jakai Robinson, a highly touted guard from the Washington, D.C. area, committed to the University of Miami during the weekend, becoming the third guard in the Hurricanes’ Class of 2021.

Robinson, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard known for his toughness, is considered the No. 2 basketball recruit in Maryland. He chose Miami over UConn, North Carolina State, Seton Hall and Georgetown.

The Canes had previously received commitments from 6-1 point guard Bensley Joseph and 6-4 combo guard Nisine Poplar.

Robinson’s high school coach Trevor Brown at National Christian Academy told 247 Sports, which first reported the news: “Jakai and his father really like the fact that they have an experienced coaching staff over there. The coaching staff is established and has been together for a long time, much like my staff has. Miami has had a lot of success developing wing players. They play a lot of pick-and-roll type basketball. They get up and down the court pretty well and play with a decent pace. Those are all of the things Jakai does really well.”

Miami starting point guard Chris Lykes will be a senior this season, so coach Jim Larranaga and his staff now have three Class of 2021 prospects, along with returning guards Harlond Beverly and Isaiah Wong, to fill the void.

The college basketball season begins the last week of November.
