Next year our offense has the potential to be top 5. EVERYONE returns. EVERYONE. Can our d improve to top 50 though?
Texas Tech had a near magic season a few years thanks to a top five offense. Others like Mizzou, Okie State, Kansas and K-State have been close before as well, and some would have made it in a four team playoff. With an easy non-conference schedule outside of S. Carolina and switching Clemson out for Wake in conference there is not reason that they cannot compete in any of next year's games. Three of the five loses would be off the schedule and VT is not really scary.
Now of course I know they will not, I would be happy with 9-3 (6-2) and just hope the tiebreak gods gets us to the CCG, but if they could ever find consistency then we could be a top twenty team. That team that played last Thursday can beat any team on next year's schedule.
Marlins have 2 World Series titles in about 20 years of existence and people cry about the owner sucking. LoL
Wayne Huizenga was the owner in 1997
Loria did own the team in '03 and then sold the parts to that team shortly after. After scamming the city into finally building a stadium he actually went out and spent money...for one year. He then sold everything off again. They are consistently at or near the bottom in payroll, a couple of times the whole roster made less than some players on other teams. He is not committed to winning or putting a competitive product on the field and never has been. This is really not debatable.
