The Canes start 2-0, and do look to be back. It looks like they have the right kid playing quarterback.

Yeah I didn't expect that they would dominate like that either, their QB looked like a stud last night, very good performance.

I went to the USC game in 2005. I wasn't that impressed. The noise was just average and it was a sold out game. Ive been to a Florida, Florida state game in the Swamp and it was unlike anything ive ever experienced. So coming from PERSONAL experience I would say the swamp is alot louder.

Jacory looked very impressive the other night. Good to see the Canes back in the game. This season is beginning to remind me of the early 90's when my team (Bama) & Miami went at it the the championship game. I was but a youth but remember some of it.

Lets throw out a hypothetical. If Miami beats Va Tech and OU where would you rank them assuming the current top 10 teams win out. Beating 4 ranked opponents in a row is pretty impressive even if FSU was overrated.

Honestly given how big Miami was a while back, even if they have a pretty good year, it's still early to say "they're back" by Miami standards. I'll say that if they get AT LEAST 8 wins and are ranked for at least 2-3 years consecutively.

As a Tech fan, I wasn't/am not upset about losing to Miami last night. I think it's good that they think they have their swagger back but the game last night was important for the U, NOT GTech. Truthfully, the Jackets have beaten Miami enough and we'll be ranked again after we beat the Tar Heels (assuming we fall out the top 25), so it's okay. The U has to play VPI and Oklahoma (#12 and #13) so they are a little desperate. I do like how Miami came out swinging though, shows they respect The Institute.

Jacory is the real deal. It's going to be scary how good they will be next year. The U could be playing in the big game next year.

I would put them at 7. If they win the next 2 they have to be looked at as a possible canidate for the national championship game. But they would also have to win the rest of their games too.

In 2005 Oregon lost to SC 45-13, so of course it was not that loud. However, when UO beat SC in 2007, it registered 127 decibels, which is the loudest any stadium has ever been recorded. Besides, unless you are a SC fan or a Duck fan I highly doubt you had seats down towards the field that you could have heard the full effect (at least for the first half when we were competitive).

But, I went to The University of Tennessee for Grad School and I have been to not only the Swamp, but to Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss (the Grove), and Arkansas and with the exception of LSU I was not impressed. And I have been to both Florida and LSU twice.
