College football is a ridiculously frustrating thing, and playing in the ACC only magnifies that. Listen, we know the chances of it happening are slight, but if Duke beats NC and somehow knocked off Georgia Tech next weekend they'd have the best conference record. Seriously, 

Duke!?! 

Of course, Canes fans should be rooting for that to happen, and then hoping Miami runs over Duke, but it's kind of sad our ACC title hopes rest in the Blue Devils being good, but not too good.

Anyway, this week Miami hosts the Virginia Cavaliers (named for the popular Chevy sedan) for UM's homecoming weekend. The Cavaliers come back to Miami for the first time since they smothered the Canes 48-0 in 2007, and it'll be their first visit to Land Shark (hopefully they'll be distracted by the cheesiness of the new digs). 

Miami pulled a win out in this divisional rivalry last year, but even that was in overtime. Safe money is still on the Canes, and the game isn't raising many eyebrows. Besides buying tickets, your only chance to see it will be streaming online at ESPN 360.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
