  • Miami 9/16 8:00ET FOX19/ESPN3

    Miami is favored by 9.5 in the early line. They are 1-1 with a close loss @ Marshall. They're going to throw the ball around a lot. They're 2:1 pass to run based on the first two games. The guy to stop is WR James Gardner
    Hopefully the Bearcats will get a little bit of passing offense going in this one otherwise we might lose the Victory Bell for the first time in a long while. I think the line will shrink but to be honest they're farther along in the rebuilding process than we are right now. Fans need to show up on the road for this one. Here's your ticket link from Miami. Might be a harder ticket than usual as it's their Homecoming game.

      This probably needs it's own thread but they just announced changes to the UC Miami scheduling going forward. In 2018, 2022, 2026 the game will be played at a "neutral site" at PBS.

        On second thought, this is good for us. Fewer trips to Oxford.

          Not sure how the schedule lays out but that is good news only if those dates were Oxford dates but makes no sense if they were Nippert dates. Nippert is big enough for this game plus why would we give up home field just to spread the same number of people out in a bigger stadium. How about we fill Nippert regularly first.

            We need to turn out. Get tickets if you do not have them and wear BLACK.

              The games in Oxford have been in odd-numbered years for the past several seasons. Next year should have been at Nippert, but will be at PBS.

              The three PBS dates are spread out 4 years apart, with only 3 stadiums in the mix. Unless the odd-to-even arrangement is jumbled, UC would lose 4 home games.

                I'm not sure why this is being done; where are all the fans going to come from? But the 2022 and 2026 games look like they are scheduled on Octoberfest weekends so that would be nice.

                What I really wanted was to play them until we led the series by one game and then drop them like a hot potato. Actually, I like the rivalry; with how some of the other college rivalries are being destroyed by all the realignments it's nice we can keep it going.

                    I thought it somewhat humorous, on the local news last night the Miami FB coach said something to the effect, "We're bound to when one of these games, eventually." Well, buddy, this year is your best chance with our team still trying to find its identity and the return of your strong QB.

                      I don't like going down to PBS for UC games. I actually enjoy going up to Miami and watching the game. It's always best go up early and plan on walking around Oxford after the game to avoid all of the traffic.

                        I agree, why PBS???? I've gone to the Miami game in Oxford for the last 10 years & other than the traffic, it's a good, short road trip. The only thing i can assume is that UC didn't want to go there every other year.

                          Actually, traffic isn't that bad to Oxford, if you know the back roads. I also prefer to drive up there, instead of sitting in the concrete monstrosity for three hours.

                            These 2 teams look evenly matched except at QB where I think the edge goes to Miami. I don't know anything about Miami's kicker, but I suspect they have an edge there too given our situation.

                              Miami is definitely much improved, but seeing how good our defense played against a very good Michigan team, I'm going to go with the Bearcats by 7.
