Since Saturday, FSU football fans have celebrated beating the Miami Hurricanes for the third consecutive year. Miami fans have made every excuse as to why they lost instead of admitting that FSU is the better team and program.
They continue to use the same logic regarding how they looked when playing teams like Temple, Bethune Cookman, and a Texas A&M program that just fired Jimbo Fisher.
They thought they had a top program after starting 4-0, but the real games started getting played. Have they improved as a team compared to last year? I’ll give them that, but it would be hard not to with how badly they played last season.
Many Miami fans clamored for Mario Cristobal to start freshman QB Emory Williams instead of Tyler Van Dyke against FSU. I said if Cristobal was smart, that’s what he’d do, so he’d have a built-in excuse for the incoming loss.
He started Williams, and the final score was close, but Williams did nothing to impact the game. However, in typical Miami Hurricane fashion, their fans try to use the final score to indicate they closed the gap with FSU.
The crazy part is they have had the more talented team(on paper) the last three years, losing every game. The fact is, FSU has closed the gap and opened one on Miami with this win. Here are five reasons why that’s the case.
