FSU football has now defeated their arch-rival Miami Hurricanes for three straight years. The Seminoles have that recruiting advantage for prospects and transfers.
However, some still go to Miami for the city's glitz and glamor and NIL opportunities. With that being said, Thursday's Bad Boy Mowers Pinstripe Bowl loss against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights could have put a bad taste in the mouths of those who were optimistic of the Hurricanes.
Miami now has one bowl victory since 2008. For reference, legendary head football coach Bobby Bowden has had two bowl victories since that period (RIP to the one and only who built Florida State into what it is today).
Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones speaks out on the inconsistencies of the Miami Hurricanes program. In today's college football landscape, it is easy to get wrapped up in the opportunities associated with NIL.
This Miami football team has been virtually irrelevant since it joined the ACC back in 2004. They have only been to the ACC Championship once joining the conference where they lost to Clemson by a score of 38-3 in the 2017 conference title matchup.
Hurricane fans always seem to state that it is their year almost every season until it falls off the rails to end the campaign.
Even Florida State defensive ends coach/special teams coordinator John Papuchis notices that the social media timelines are so quiet now that Miami fans are not talking smack about their team. Maybe 2024 will finally be their year to be successful...
The job is not finished as the Seminoles still have to face off against the Georgia Bulldogs in the Orange Bowl. However, with the high amount of opt-outs, this version of the Seminoles will look vastly different from the one that defeated the Louisville Cardinals in Charlotte (NC) for the ACC Championship
